SUPT. ELBERT E. DAY PRIN. JOHN W. KENDALL
ELBERT E. DAY. Superintendent of the Marion City Schools, was born in
1882 at Markle, Indiana. He attended Marion Normal, Indiana Univer-
sity, and Columbia University, and has an A.B. and an A.M. degree. His career
as a teacher is both long and interesting, a striking testimonial of great ability
well used. He taught school in Roll, Millgrove, Butlerville, Galveston, Bunker
Hill, Butler. and Toledo before he came to Marion four years ago in February,
1923. His experience has rendered him an exceedingly capable superintendent.
Perhaps the most important events which have occurred under his jurisdic-
tion are the construction of the McCulloch and Martin Boots Junior High
Schools and the adoption of plans for a new field house for Marion. School
affairs in Marion have prospered as never before since the installation of Super-
intendent Day, and he is well liked by both students and teachers throughout the
PRINCIPAL JOHN WESLEY KENDALL was born in Miami County. He is a
graduate of Indiana State Normal and of Indiana University. He has an
A.B. degree and has had a great deal of experience as principal. having been prin-
cipal of the High School at Peru, Indiana before he came to Marion. He
assumed the oliice of principal of the Marion High School in 1920 and has been
here for seven years. It is no easy task to fill the office of principal well and he
has certainly done so. A great deal of preparation and a tremendous fund of
intensive information is needed by the holder of such an office and the holder
must possess other attributes even harder to acquire. Altogether M.H.S. has good
reason to be proud of her chief executive and to compliment him on the way in
which school affairs have been transacted during his administration.

ARION HIGH SCHOOL is more fortunate than most high schools in its se-
.. lection of instructors. Nearly all are graduates of Universities or Col-
leges and have had special work in their line.
Within the last year four new teachers have been added. Miss Christine
Kendall has taken the place of Miss Wise who is now studying at Michigan Uni-
versity. Miss Kendall is very accomplished in Music and under her direction
this department has developed to a great extent. "The Belle of Barcelona" de-
finitely proved this statement.
Miss Cleveland has superseded Mrs. Eli Thomas formerly known as
Miss Welty, in the Art Work. The art classes were entered in the poster contest
and won high honors and Marion High School on account of its interest in art
was intrusted with the John Herron Art School's exhibit.
Miss Aveline, a graduate of Indiana University is now a member of the
English department and is handling her classes capably.
James Mock, popularly known as "Jimmy", teaches Spanish in school and
also has charge of Marion High's tennis team.
The various departments have advanced greatly in the past year. The
band is a product of the music department and under Mr. Tuttle's supervision
it has gone farther than many can think believable, considering the short time
it has been organized.
The drama course which is a part of the English work is making fast
strides toward the success that Marion High should have. Many plays have been
put on namely: "On the Hiring Line," 'iMinick," "Golden Days," besides
numerous one-act plays. Mr. V. A. Smith. who directed these plays, also di-
rected "Captain Applejackf' the Senior Class play.

HE Seniors have at times tried their best to assume the dignity that typifies
an upper classman but try as they would it proved only temporary. But
all in all they have turned out to be a good group.
The faculty advisors were Miss Burton and Mr, V. A. Smith and under
their direction the Senior Class has accomplished much. The class sponsored
the Band Ticket Sale in the High School and the sale of the Cactus. They have
given an average of one program a month before the student body and planted
a tree in front of the High School building early in the Spring. The Annual
Staff is composed of Seniors with Roger Rhorer as Editor-in-chief: Joseph
Hutchins, Business Manager and Susan Erlewine, Student Representative on the
Annual Board to guide the Staff.
Besides these activities they took "time out" at intervals of the school year
and held some very interesting good times. The first of these was a "Hard Times
Party" in December. The evening's entertainment was divided into two sec-
tions: The Hrst was in the form, of a program in the auditorium and the next
took place in the Gym, where they lost their dignity and assumed the role of chil-
dren. The "Good Times Party" was next and the famous Senior Orchestra fur-
nished the greater part of the entertainment. As the time for commencement
grew nearer they became worried that they should never partake of the childish
ways again so they held a Kid Party at Camp Meshingomesia and you would
never have recognized those most dignified personages, for their attire and man-
ner were so changed. Of course their picnic must be mentioned. for it was one of
the days that will not soon be blotted from the memories of those who attended.
A'Captain Applejackn was more than a success and it showed the dramatic
ability of the Senior Class.

ACH year it has been the custom of the Senior Class to organize, but the or-
ganizations have taken place rather late in the year. This year the class
got away to a flying start and held an early election. As always. great interest
was felt in the outcome and the election was hotly contested. Robert Brunt
emerged from the fray as President. Clifton Grant, Vice-President of the Junior
Class of the previous year, was reinstated in his old ofhce. Stephen Johnson.
justly renowned for his athletic powers, was elected Secretary, and Robert
Custer, also of some note in athletic circles, was placed in the Treasurer's chair
and entrusted with the pecuniary resources of the Senior Class.
Robert Brunt was well qualified to fill the office of Senior President and
has done so, remarkably well. He has been and is a member of many of the
best school clubs and has been indefatigable in working for the betterment of
Clifton Grant. the vice-president, has been prominent in school affairs
since his Freshman year. He has been editor of the Handbook. Consul of the
Latin Club and Vice-President of the Hi-Y and French Clubs and of the Junior
Stephen Johnson is very well known in M.H.S. He is a letter man in
football and basketball and an earnest track aspirant. He was Treasurer of the
Junior Class and could not be bettered as Senior Class Secretary.
Robert Custer is a yell leader of no mean ability. He has his letter in
football and is an actor of note. He is a superb guardian of the money bags.

THE 1928 Class has reached the third lap of their four-year course and have
taken upon themselves the honor and importance of being Juniors.
They organized soon after school began and chose for their oilicers: Ralph
Isselhardt, President: Herbert Custer, Vice-President: Josephine Hardy, Secre-
tary, and J. William Long, Treasurer.
Their advisors are Miss Covalt and Miss Marie Ballinger.
Late in the year they followed the custom of the year before and got their
class rings and pins.
The Class of '29 attained the distinction of being Sophomores after
being known to us as Freshmen for one long year. They organized for the first
time and chose to guide the destiny of the class: Hunter Stewart. President: Tom
Kendall, Vice-President: Margaret Clawson, Secretary: and Fred Herzog, Treas-
urer. The advisors are Miss Priest and Miss Sims.
In scholarship the Sophomores rank high and one of their number, Herbert
Reese, took second place in the State Latin Contest at Bloomington. They
showed very favorable prospects in athletics, C1ib Sullivan gaining an for
his work on the Hrst team while David Price, Erle Kightlinger, John Yunker.
Harold Nall, Vlilliam Shearer and Frank Roberts upheld the second team.
This year Marion High had a very small Freshman Class consisting of
about seventy-Eve members. No class activities were engaged in nor was the
class organized, Most of the Freshmen were at Martin Boots and McCulloch
Junior high school in accordance with the plan of having three years of Junior
and three of Senior High School.

THIS year Marion High School inaugurated a distinct innovation in the line
of its publications by placing in the hands of the student body a high school
handbook containing valuable instruction in the usage of the building. It was
published with the idea of bringing before the entire student body the complete
curriculum of the school and of enabling them to become familiar with the rules
governing all branches of conduct in the building. It was primarily intended for
the new students, but information important to others was placed in it. In
it was embodied an outline of the athletic achievements of the school and a list
of the college entrance requirements of the best known colleges.
The book was printed and bound in the high school printshop and was
distributed to the student body about the beginning of the second semester of
the school year. The book was published by a staff consisting of Will Hilde-
brand, Velma Foland, Roger Rhorer and Mary Kendall. It was edited by Clif-
ton Grant and was produced under the direction of B. H. Penrod, faculty ad-
visor and instructor of printing in the Marion High School.
It has long been the custom of other schools to publish such handbooks,
and lVlarion's adding the handbook to her list of publications is regarded as a
distinct advancement. The handbook published this year was in the nature
of an experiment and was successful from every point of view. The work of
publishing the book was considerable, and was handicapped by the lack of any
precedent. However, a splendid book was produced and next year's handbook,
even aided by the examples' set by the present publication, will have much to do
to equal the handbook of this present school year.

Red Masque Club
I-IE Red Masque Dramatic Club, formed in l923 by the cast of "Nothing
But the Truth" started in the fall with only eight members. At its Hrst
meeting Robert Pixel was unanimously elected president and arrangements were
made for tryouts in the immediate future.
By the constitution, the club' is limited to a membership of forty, but this
year after the tryouts, in accordance with a new policy, only about twenty
people were admitted, making a membership of twenty-eight. Velma Poland
was elected secretary: Donnel Weaver, treasurer of the organization: and the
club has found a most effective vice-president in Stephen Johnson.
Through much discussion the purpose of the club for the year was de-
cided upon. lt was: A'To stimulate interest in drama, certainly: but to stimulate
interest in a better type of drama,' was the motto, to bring to the local public
an appreciation of' what is best in dramatic art. To what degree of success this
purpose has been realiied, only the play-goers of Marion can testify. And what-
ever has been achieved is largely the product of untiring effort on the part of
both president Pixel and Mr. V. A Smith, faculty advisor and dramatic coach.
It was proposed in the beginning to give at least two long plays, besides a
number of "one-acts," but owing to various conflicts this was found impracti-
cal, so that in the end five plays were given in all, only one of which was
three acts in length. Of these five, brief summaries may be found below:
"lVlinick" recommended itself to the Red Masque Club as a play more
powerful in appeal than anything ever given here. lt is a very pleasing melo-
drama. full of engaging humor, presenting in an often-times touching way, the
tragedy of old age. The cast, one of exceptionally high caliber, are to be con-
gratulated on the realism with which they portrayed their various roles, each

one of which required the most exacting study in characterization. lThe stage
presented a charming picture with its specially constructed set. novel lighting ef-
fects. and the new black tormneotrs. which threw it into bold relief.J
The part of Minick, the lovable old man who comes to live with his son
and daughter-in-law in their Chicago flat, was splendidly conceived by Victor
Day. The young Minicks lEleanora Lutz and Leo Keimj were easily recog-
nizable as the typical, modern young couple, well-meaning, but too hopelessly
engrossed in the social doing of their young married set to have much time for
an old man, Lil and .lim Corey tAnna Louise Fagan and Stephen Johnsonl

Donnel Weaver and Everett Callahan developed unsuspected feebleness as
Mr. Price and Mr. Deitenhoffer, Minick's friends from the old men's home
across the street. and Josephine Hardy kept the comedy going as Lulu. the
slouchy, indolent. but dictatorial new colored maid. One of the features of
the play was the club-scene in which Mildred Echelbarger, Ruth Fenstermaker,
Anna Chochos and Ruth MacDonald create pandemonium in their efforts to be
rid of the talkative old Minick, who interrupts with his stories. Ruth Mac-
donald was especially outstanding in her character as the stern, off-with-your
head Miss Crackenwald.

RENCH is exceedingly interesting. More and more persons are studying the
language and learning to speak it fluently. Those who would be neighborly
must be able to converse with people next door. There is a large call for French-
speaking Americans to teach English to the French. If the international ex-
change of languages were practiced. might not a stronger bond of friendliness be
formed? At least several seekers after French decided to know more about the
subject than mere text-book material and in order to do so on Tuesday, No-
vember 2. 1926, the members of the French lll, IV and V Classes met and or-
ganized "Le Cercle Francais." The club was better known to those not in the
parlez-vous Classes as the French Club.
The purpose of Le Cercle is to create and maintain a higher appreciation
of French. in fact. to promote interest in all things French. French problems
and customs were the favorite topics of discussion. Interesting reports were giv-
en on the government, social life and religion of the French people. ln the way
of lighter things, French games. songs and charades were learned. The French
National Hymn and many peasant songs were sung. The club met once every
six weeks and at each meeting the fiag salute was given in French.
The oilicers of the club were as follows: President. Minnie Bourke: Vice-
President, Victor Day: Secretary-Treasurer. Jane Rhue. Near the end of the
semester Victor Day resigned his ofhce and Clifton Grant was elected to fill his

HIS Hi-Y Club has been organized in Marion about six years. ln this length
of time it has become a permanent fixture of the moral and social life of
the high school. The slogan is known as the "Four C's": Clean living. clean
speech. clean athletics. and clean scholarship. The purpose is "to create. main-
tain. and extend throughout the school and community higher standards of
At the beginning of each half year new members are chosen. The Hrst se-
mester there were nineteen initiated and the second. thirteen. The club reserves
the right to select their own members and by that method they keep the club
from becoming too large and unwieldy.
An annual "Father and Son" banquet was held at which Representative Al-
bert l-lall gave an address. A "Faculty and Hi-Y" banquet was also given. Mr.
Schnell, of the state staff of the Y.lVl.C.A., was the main speaker. The case
of Miss Ciladys Neal was continued on this occasion. The culprit was last
year charged with using a Latin pony and was this year proven guilty. The
sentence was that since she had disgraced the Latin Department. her privileges
as Latin teacher were to be forfeited and she was from thence forth to serve in
the Physics Department.
0Hicers for the first semester were: President. Will Hildebrand: Vice-
President. Clifton Grant: Secretary. James Anderson: Treasurer, John Mart.

HE agricultural department began its eighth year of work. as a Club. the iirst
of January. This group of boys was supervised by the agricultural teacher
Mr. Crane. who was elected President of the Indiana Agricultural Teachers
Association in June. 1926. This organization is sponsored by the American
Vocational Association of both the United States and Canada for promoting
vocational work in its various phases.
The work and opportunities of the club this year were extensive. Various
lecturers were brought to Marion, giving the students a chance to hear them.
The members of the Club won the majority of the prizes at the Poultry and
Corn shows in the county contest. Teams composed of the different members
of the club demonstrated during the course of the year various features to farm
bureaus and other clubs. Each student had a home project for the summer.
He was given the liberty of choosing any one he wished to do. Some had live
acre cornlots. pigs. calves. poultry and bees. One member took as his problem
the raising of Flemish Giant rabbits. Last year a park was started on the agri-
cultural farm near the Memorial Field. This year the members enlarged it ex-
tending the grove to the west end of the tract, planting more trees and shrubbery.
Also the club was represented in the round-up at Purdue, May 4-7. Eggs were
the only produce entered.
- The club was composed of members which made up the department. The
President for the past year was George Snow. Secretary. John Cain.

RUE to their name, Zonta. which means "trustworthy," this group of girls
was always ready and willing to accept responsibility.
The Zonta Club of Ciirl Reserves is the one non-restricted organization
for girls in M.H.S.. Any high school girl may become a member. The mem-
bership increased considerably during the year until it included approximately
one hundred and forty girls. The variou.s activities included in this year's pro-
gram helped to further the purpose of the Zonta Club which is: to promote
comracleship among the girls of our school, to develop the social, mental, physi-
cal, and spiritual phases of life, to make the club a force for the promotion of
higher ideals and to render helpful service to others.

'I' HAS not been definitely determined. but an exhaustive research has revealed.
if history truly repeats itself to this struggling author. that the first Latin
Club was employed to drive Cateline from Rome. The Marion High School
Latin Club is one of the peppiest and largest organizations in the school. having
a membership of about sixty Latin students. representatives from the Caesar,
Cicero. and Vergil divisions.
lt is the oldest continual school club. and. all during its existence. it has
done commendable work in creating. maintaining. and extending a beneficial in-
terest in the subject of Latin as taught in the High School curriculum. The
club meetings. held monthly in the school building, are remarkably well at-
tended. due largely to the fact that the program committee. with the aid of the
sponsors, has at each meeting provided a diversified. interesting. and instructive
program. Talks on Roman customs and people. debates, and games with a
Latin background have contributed their part to the program.
The club itself is modelled from the Roman government having as its ex-
ecutive department two consuls, who alternately preside at the six regular meet-
ings. Three aediles. serving as the program committee. and two quaestors. who
are the secretary and treasurer. are the remaining officers. The consuls of this
school year of l926-27 are Clifton Grant and Will Hildebrand. the quaestors are
Karolyn Meyer. Secretary. and Charlotte Woodmansee. Treasurer, and the
aediles are Miriam Bahr, Margaret Clawson. and Mason Hamilton.
County Latin Contest Winners
Top Row--Pence, Reese, Clawson, Stewart

ACH year for the last four years, it has been the custom of the Marion High
School to enter contestants in the Latin contests, sponsored by the ex-
tension department of Indiana University. This series of contests, four in num-
ber, consists of the local contest from which the winners of first and second
place in each of the five divisions are entered in the county' contest, From this
contest also the winners of first and second place in each division are entered in
the district contest, from which only the Winners of first place in each division
go to Bloomington to take the state Latin examination, which is the final test.
In both district and state contests, gold. silver, and bronze medals ard awarded
to the first, second and third in each division.
Marion has established an enviable record in the Latin contests during her
four years of participation, and this year, she secured eight iirsts and seconds
in Division IA, Esther Pence and Herbert Reece were awarded first and second
respectively. Division II was represented by Margaret Clawson, first, and
Hunter Stewart, second. The champion of Cicero's orationfs was Donnave
Meyers, who won first in Division III, while Virgil, Division IV, was won by
Charlotte Woodmansee with Roger Rhorer second.
In the district Latin Contest held at Wabash, March 26, Marion acquired
two Hrst places and all the seconds. Herbert Reece triumphed in IA and Roger
Rhorer received the gold medal in IV. Mary Broughman, Esther Pence, Hunter
Steward, Donnave Meyers and Charlotte Woodmansee received silver medals in
their various divisions. In the state contest held April 8th, Herbert Reece placed
second in Division IA and Roger Rhorer placed third in Division IV.

HE Spanish Club, one of the oldest clubs of the High School, was organized
for 1927 under the direction of Miss Wortman and Mr. Mock. The of-
ficers this year were as follows: Joseph Hamilton, President: Gladys Wilcox,
Vice-President: Margaret Bradbury, Secretary: and Dixie Elkins, Treasurer.
The elections are held at the beginning of' every school year and the officers hold
their positions until the end of the year. The club was named i'Abur. Espanol"
llrli, Spaniardj. The meetings are held on the iirst and third Thursdays of
each month and special meetings may be called whenever necessary. There
were about fifty members in the club during the year, which included some
Spanish pupils from Martin Boots and some members who were not taking
Spanish. The object of the club is to create a greater interest in Spanish by help-
ing the members to become familiar with the use of Spanish in speech and to
have social activities conducted along Spanish lines and with Spanish customs.
The emblem of the club is a pin of black and gold letters, A. E.. set in the black
center which is surrounded by a gold rim. The requirements for membership
in the club are one year of Spanish and a grade of 85 or better.
If the enthusiasm so far made manifest continues. the school may count
herself fortunate to have the organization made a permanent asset.

HROUGH the ages those who have appreciated some particular art have com-
bined forces to increase their efficiency. Those who felt the call of the stage
in their blood grouped themselves into the organization called the "Dramatic
Club:" the gentle followers of Vergil into the Latin Club, for protection. Thus
the Literary Club was formed.
A goal composed of two definite purposes was established immediately.
First: to arouse more interest in the classics as well as in modern literature. and
second: to discover the rising poets and authors of the future. Without a doubt
they have been found. We say and say it without fear of successful contradic-
tion that some of the poems written by the members will be inscribed, at some
time in the Hall of Fame.

vision of M, S. Cole, endeavor to raise the standards of penmanship in Marion
Certificates are granted only to those who are proficient in a rapid muscular-
ln this class there were twelve. winning certificates this year and five
who had won them the previous year. These five were not eligible for the na-
tional examination this year because of having written on it and received a
certificate the year before. The classes are increasing every year and with the
increase from year to year Mr. Cole is hoping to have a large class of expert
penmen with every one passing the examination.
A commercial contest which includes typewriting, penmanship. short-
hand. and bookkeeping is held every year for commercial students all over the
state. The students first tryout in the district. where the Marion contestants
usually have the pleasure of contesting in their own school. Then the team or
individual goes to the State Contest which is held at Muncie. Those winning
in the state receive awards. Four of the students who won certificates at school
this year were entered in the State contest, three of the four participated in the
contest. one served as alternate. Those entered were: Robert Comer. Zoe Baum-
gartner. Max Robbins, and Doris Rounds.

HE Marion High School is favored by having a highly developed music
department and by the interest in it displayed by the students. One of the
most important factors in the music department is the band, conducted by Prof.
Coloston R. Tuttle. This is a splendid organization and its conductor is es'
teemed one of the best in the state. This year the band has been very active,
playing at all the football and basketball games and giving concerts, A smaller
division of the band, the Trumpet and Drum Corps, has been organized this
year. The Trumpets are of the "Aida" type, about four feet long.
Another very active part of the Music department is the Girls' Glee Club.
It has entertained the assembly many times. as has its companion club, the
Boys' Glee Club. The vocal instruction for the first semester was under the di-
rection of Miss-VJise. Upon her withdrawal, Miss Christine Kendall assumed
charge and has been doing remarkable work.
After due consideration the operetta "The Belle of Barcelona" was selected
to be presented by the Music Department. John Haner as Hal, the hero, made
a dashing lover and Rebecca Snyder, a beautiful heroine. The remainder of the
cast portrayed the story with superb characterization. The story was very well
worked out and interest was kept at the highest pitch throughout the per-
Marion High is lavishly supplied with musical talent of all descriptions and
many musical numbers have been presented during the school year. Musical
ability is being encouraged more and more each year both by the faculty and by
popular acclaim and each year a marked improvement is to be noted. This year
a truly good department has been produced and the instructors of the department
look forward to an even better season next year, and expect to develop some
entirely new talent.

INCIZ time began. singing has been an expression of joy. Both of' this year's
instructors in the art of vocal melody labored long and tirelessly to instill
this fact in the minds of the girls who were musically or not musically inclined.
Wonderful results came from their valiant efforts.
One year the girls worked especially hard and won first prize in the state
contest. Dean McCutcheon and Schumann-Heinck were judges which made the
honor conferred still greater. Although no other prizes have been won the club
has been a group of' which the school has been proud.

'I' HAS never been definitely determined why boys are so loathe to sing. lf
boys are told they can't sing, they stop trying while girls make up their
minds to "show that teacher." However it may be, the fact remains that both
vocal teachers succeeded lby magic or some other methodb to bring forth me-
lodious sounds from the throats of some twenty or thirty boys.
Under the supervision of Miss Wise the boys brought back first prize in
the State Glee Club Contest the same year the girls won the one hundred dollar
prize offered to the best Ciirls' Glee Club in lndiana. Madam Schumann-
Heinck presented the prizes and kissed each girl. Miss Wise was in an agony
of suspense for a few minutes. but the boys were not similarly honored.
The boys were dashing young Senors in the niusical comedy this semester.
Part of them played the parts of U. S, Marines.
There were few solo voices, but the other voices blended well and made a
good chorus. A few soloists were found who had never dreamed of singing.
The same was true in the feminine portion of the vocal musicians.
The harsh, shouting type of singing derived from congregational merry-
making was difficult to eliminate, but patient efforts on the part of the instrucf
tors culminated in the spectacular success of the operetta.
Given a few more years, the Boys' and Girls' Glee Clubs of Marion High
are going to do wonderful things. Let's boast them and help them to win an-
other first prize.

HE Drum and Bugle Corps. a new venture in the band line. has proved very
successful this year. This organization was begun for the first time in Sep-
tember and is the only one in the State of Indiana. At first it was doubtful
whether it would prove at all profitable, but the members have practiced so
faithfully all winter that it has been a success and will probably be a permanent
organization in Marion High hereafter. Because of the fact that the member-
ship was composed entirely of Freshmen, Sophomores and Juniors. the Corps
will remain intact next year.
Twenty-one boys made up this band, and, since these members did not at-
tend the same school, night practice was held. The instrumentation was compos-
ed of twelve Fanfare or' Aida trumpets of the variety used by orchestras, cym-
phonies, and in grand opera and nine Leedy street drums which are the very
best for street playing, for they are especially large and give a greater volume.
The purpose of the Corps is to give flash and individuality to a band and is
used only for parading. The members of the Corps have been trained in their
particular line until constant practice has almost welded them into one body.
They have been coached in teamwork and the facility with which they perform
is a testimonial of the result. Though many of the members are Freshmen, the
constant drilling has produced veterans of many parades and a body of musical
students of which M.H.S. may be justly proud.

HE Marion High School Concert Band was first organized three years ago
by the present director. Coloston R, Tuttle.
Last year with the old band as a nucleus Prof. Tuttle built up a wonderful
organization. With the addition of two baritones. one sousaphone. one bass,
one bassoon, and an oboe the band made an unusual display and brought much
glory to her Alma Mater. In the state contest at Indianapolis last spring Marion
was headed by Technical High School only. Later when the band went to
Fostoria it succeeded in capturing seventh place against the strongest high school
bands in the country.
This year Mr. Tuttle had an even stronger organization than last year
in spite of the fact that he lost about fifteen of his most seasoned. men by gradu-
During the year the band presented three concerts before local audiences.
The band also brought great honor to Marion High when they won the State

HIS year Marion
entered the Big Ten, a conference of the strongest Indiana
The conference games were with Mishawaka, Muncie
Gerstmeyer of Terre Haute and Richmond. The Giants won all but the one
with Mishawaka and although this did not Win the conference, they finished
second and established themselves as one of the five strongest football teams in
Indiana. By defeating Muncie and Wabash, the Giants won state-Wide recogni-

The Giants opened the season at Memorial Field by trampling all over
Anderson and winning 19-O. The Indians could not penetrate the Marion de-
fense and were held at bay while the Giant backfield plowed through to score
almost at will.
Next came Carmel. but the Giants forgot they were here and rolled up 91

points. while Carmel could not score. Although this was Carmel's nrst year at
football. they fought hard. but were handicapped by lack of experience.
Marion then traveled to the den of the Bearcats and proceeded to tame
them. For four consecutive years Muncie had triumphed over the Purple and
Gold. but this year the tables were turned. After trailing Muncie throughout the

game, the Giants opened their strong aerial attack and during the final moments
of play, carried the ball from mid-field over the Muncie goal and emerged from
the field of mud. the victors, 6-2.
The Gerstmeyer team of Terre Haute was next to bow to the Giants. With
the entire team playing fine football, Marion carried the ball down the muddy
field, scoring 19 points and holding Gerstmeyer scoreless.
Marion then journeyed to Mishawaka for the first Big Ten game and re-
ceived a set back in her championship aspirations. Heavily out-weighed, the
Giants fought hard, but were unable to stop the strong Mishawaka team. It
was no disgrace to lose to Mishawaka who won all her games and who was
considered by many as the strongest team in the state.
Next week took the Giants to Dayton, to battle one of Ohio's strongest
elevens. Out-played the first half, the Giants came back strong, showing real
skill and fighting spirit, but the rush was started too late and when the final
whistle blew the Teddies were ahead,l3-7. In this game Davidson was hurt
and unable to play any more during the season.
After two successive defeats, the Giants doled out revenge by defeating
Sheridan. With their powerful aerial attack Marion scored three times, while
Sheridan was unable to score against the Marion defense.
In the hardest fought game on Memorial Field this year the Giants crushed
the strong Richmond team, 12-O. This was the last conference game and left
Marion with a record of three wins and one defeat.

Then came the annual struggle with Wabash. who was heralded as one
of the State's best. Playing on a muddy field, both teams fought hard, neither
l scoring until the third quarter, when Stickann. with perfect interference. took
the ball through the entire Wabash team and ran 70 yards to the two yard line
From there Heck carried the ball across. Hodge played a wonderful game,
breaking through for many tackles.
The game established Marion as one of the leading contenders for the state
title and fittingly ended the most successful football year that Marion has en-
joyed since the championship team of 'O2.

THE basketball season of 1926-27 was indeed one of varied success and fail-
ure. At time the Giants played well, giving the best teams in the state a
gruelling battle. Then they would go into a slump and be defeated by much
The season opened with a victory over the Noblesville quintet. This was
followed by victories over Central of Ft. Wayne and Greenfield. A visit to
Warsaw and Anderson gave the Giants two more victories to their credit. Then
Vincennes came north and by defeating the Giants 29-26. gained possession of
the Victory Brick. which Marion had held since the state tournament last year.
A rough and terrible game with Kokomo gave the Giants another defeat.

throughout the game. only to weaken in the final moments and lose by two
points. The game was the best the Giants played this year and showed that
l when they were going at top speed they could give any team in the state a close
battle. The next night Marion walked from Wabash, 52-25. The Giants
then traveled to Frankfort and put up a real fight the first half holding Frank-
fort to a tie, but they weakened in the second half and Frankfort won easily.
Three nights later the Giants fell the same way before Martinsville, who later
f won the State Championship of 1927. In a slow and poorly played game the
Muncie Bearcats defeated the Giants. 25-14 at Muncie. A northern invasion
netted the Giants a defeat by Gary and a victory over South Bend. Once more
l Marion fell before the fast Muncie team 43-17. Marion played well but was
unable to connect with the basket. In the last game of the season Bloomington

3 Sectional Tournament
The sectional tournament was held at the Civic Hall and was the closest one
3 ever held in Marion. Marion eliminated Sweetser 27-16 in the morning and in
' the afternoon disposed of Upland 41-26.
V Fairmount went through their schedule and met Marion in the final game.
' The game was one of the closest ever played in Civic Hall. Both. teams put up
a strong defense in the first half which ended with Marion leading 10-6. Fair-
it mount started a shower of baskets in the second half and was leading until Ma-
fi rion came back strong and won by one point, 23-22.
f Regional Tournament
li In the first game of the Tourney the Giants defeated Montpelier 22-l5.
'il The game was hard fought and closely contested throughout. Then Kokomo
eliminated Marion in the final game, 26-19. This game was very rough through-
ll out. both sides having many fouls.
' Thus ended the sea.son for the Giants of 1926-27, and although they did
not go as far as their predecessors they fought hard throughout the season and
'T gave their best for the Purple and Gold.

against Peru's 36 points.
Marion again emerged the victor in a triangular meet with Westfield and

A trip to Ft. Vv'ayne gave the track team another victory. Central easily
fell before the Cviants who scored 6255 points to their 36M points.
Then came the county track meet at Memorial Field. Amid flurries of
snow Marion tied Fairmount for first honors, each scoring 32 points. The two
teams tossed a coin to decide who should receive the cup, and Fairmount won the

loss will be especially felt by the coach in his efforts to construct a track team
for next year. This year has been one of triumphs on the cinder path. but the
team has been weak in the field events. However, this being the first year for
Marion with a home track, the record is outstanding.
Those members of the team who scored a certain number of points will be
given sweaters and Marion expects to have several letter men about whom to
build the track team of next year. Stickann has been showing up well in the
dashes as has Isselhardt in the hurdles. Knipple, Price. Kightlinger, Duke, Paul-
lus. Miller, and Bollet have also been doing good work.
The district track meet was held at Marion and was followed by the state
meet held at Indianapolis. A big year is expected in 1928.
TWO years ago Marion High School had a tennis team. coached by Clifford
Pribble. who also coached the track team. A very successful season was the
result. Last year Professor Pribble was unable to coach a tennis team as too
much of his time was taken up by track.
This year a tennis team was organized again. coached by Professor James
Mock. Great enthusiasm was manifested by the students and a good turnout
began practise in the gym almost before the snow was off the ground. Not all
who came out for tennis were boys. as it had been decided to have a girls" ten-
nis team also. thus making tennis the only M.H.S. sport in which girls may
As soon as the weather had modified to a slight extent, the embryo Ma-
rionnetters prepared a tennis court and outdoor practice began. Double teams
were organized, both boys, girls. and mixed. Some of the aspirants who dis-
played some real ability were Duncan, Oliver, Grant, Fixel, Case, Warner, and
Pope. Two of these, Fixel and Warner, were veterans of the former team or-
ganized by Coach Pribble.
The irst meet was held at Marion with the Central netmen of Ft. Wayne.
The long hours of practice and earnest effort were duly awarded. Of the
tennis teams, Grant, Oliver. Pixel, Warner and Case graduate. but among the
undergrads. Duncan, Moore, Paynter. Pope and Flannigan. have been show-
ing line form and the reserves have given the regulars many strong battles in
practice. As in all first years many obstructions had to be met and overcome
this year by the tennis teams, but hereafter it is expected that it will become an
established factor in the Marion High School athletics. This year's team was in a
degree a trial, but a successful one, and most optimistic hopes are held for future
teams. Not so long ago athletics were regarded by high school authorities as
utterly unnecessary and irrevalent. However, it is coming more and more to be
recognized that athletic activities are a splendidly beneficial part of the high
school curriculum. As time has passed, more diversified kinds of sports have
been added to the schedule of the athletic department and tennis is the latest
sport added to that of M.H.S.

P-is for Planes we'lI all have some day
R-for the Radio-reaches lands far away
O--stands for Oxygen-foe of T.B.
G--for the Grandeur around us we see
R-tells of Radium-heals ugly scars
E--for the Engines used in the wars
S-stands for Steamships-mammoth and strong
S-for the Steam used to move them along.
Good things and great things-large things and small
The dear Lord above us gave us them all.
Poor folks and rich folks-good folks and bad
The One on his throne a gift for each had.
Progress or digress-take either one
Lend a hand willing or seek only fun.
"I'm just a cog-they can without me."
Partner, you're part of a wheel you can't see.
That wheel is called Progress--it has no real end.
It can go on without you, but listen. my friend-
Everyone placed on terrestial sod
ls there for a purpose-known only to God.
Our job is to find it-to strive night and day
To add to this Progress and make our lives pay.
Each drop in the ocean--each person on earth
Must by his accomplishments prove his true worth.
Time was needed to build such a city as Rome
Which to Plebs and Patricians once served as a home.
Preparation is needed-experience, too.
For the ones who make progress are just me and you.
We may dream of the great men of days long gone by
And we each one maty long for a place in the sky.
We may wish to be known, yes, remembered by fame
And on history's pages to write a great name
Or to seek a new land as did those long ago
And to found a new nation which later would grow
To a power on this earth which would outrival far
Any power which now sways this half civilized Stat.
What excites this unrest which is mankind's best friend-
Which drives on the race to achieve some high end .P
lt's the spirit of Progress in every man's heart
Which drives him to live out his life--not apart.
But among his blood brothers to hasten the time
When human achievements will near the sublime.

Our Joy's in dreaming what we hope to do
And yet we know our dreaming is in vain.
Our life is contemplation of those dreams,
