RAY L. DAVIS President As a man Of talents, ability, and fairness, who is held in great esteem by all who know him, he aptly fills the office of President of the Board. I'fl!fl' figlif ! C 0 N T R 0 MJ CLAUDE STANLEY Secretary Efficiently but effortlessly, persistently but patiently, this great business man, who has given loyally of his time and wisdom, continues his years of service with enthus- iasm and understanding. E. I. LLEWELYN Superintendent For twenty-one years this truly great per son has held the office of Superintendent of Schools. Through his able supervision and untiring efforts, the Newcastle schools have found their place among the best. l-lis under standing, enthusiasm, and sense of humor have made for him many friendships that will not Clie. However, no man can work alone. lt has been only through the efforts of the mem bers of the School Board that he has been able to accomplish these feats. To these persons, who have quite aptly controlled the affairs of the city schools, all students owe a vote of thanks. MRS. W. H. BOYER Treasurer New therefore bubbling over with ideas, A woman therefore under- standing of lesser prob- lerns, A mother therefore in sym- pathy with the students' needs, Everyone hopes her career will be long and happy. GUIDANCE joseph A. Greenstreet "A just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations," such is the advice of joseph A. Greenstreet, a grand person who at all times lives with the benefit of oth- ers foremost in his mind and works toward that aim. A friend, indeed, to every one, Mr. George C. Bronson leaves a word with each sen- ior, "Consisting of more soul than substance, more ideals than realities, with hopes, joys, and sorrows we paint the picture called Life." George Bronson R. H. Valentine Principal In nineteen hundred twenty-one an ear- nest young man assumed the duties of prin- cipal of Newcastle High School. Down through the years his patience and wisdom have made him a true friend to all. He, together with the cooperation of the deans, has been able to guide many students through their four years of high school, and out into the world. To these five leaders go three cheers and a vote of thanks for their assistance. Clara Westhafer Miss Clara Westhafer, for- ever proud of, forever work- ing with her girls and boys, gives this final advice to the seniors, "Be thankful every day that you were born an American with all that word entails." Always ready, willing to be of assistance, whether it be with advice or with wisdom, Miss Fern Hodson says a parting word to each senior, "Live up to the best that is within you."

VALENTINE, Senior Class Sponsor ln the fall of '37 Mr. Valentine assumed the responsibility of directing the class of '38 to the finishing line. The four officers, representing the class, and he have brought us to a place where we have now finished to begin. All of us have known him for years, yet our acquaintance measures but a small part of his total service to N. H. S. During his eighteen years as principal he has gained experience and sympathy which is always at our command. He has been a real friend to us always, but talents we had not known came to our attention when he became our class sponsor. He brought to the senior organization that finest kind of Ieadership-sug- gestion, not command, speaking only when necessary. He made it our organi- zation. He brought, too, a font of new ideas, the inspiration to blaze new trails. Hepresented to us many plans, new to N. H. S. senior organization, that he hadagathered from commencement activities in other places. I We wish to thank him, here, for three years of general guidance that made hi, office a place where students were given helpful advice for continued i I rovement, not a scolding good only for temporary discipline, three years of general supervision, and one year of close cooperation which made, we believe, the Class of '38 one of the best of senior classes.

Our first year here was essentially one of discovery, fitting us for our future roles in this school. The next fall we came back sophomores, now acquainted with the demands of our school world, and ready to take our places in school life. The following autumn we returned, worked through another year, and this spring we had the honor of becoming the first junior group in the history of Newcastle High School to become organized as a class. Under the able spon- sorship of Miss Fern Hodson and Mr. Fred Goar, three hundred twelve of us voted and selected the following officers: Morton Goldberg, president, Bob Modlin, vice-president, Mary Phyllis Scott, secretary, and james Richey, treasurer. This is the history of the class of thirty-nine, we may well be proud of our record, but let us make sure that our future surpasses our past.

Yergin JUNIORS Page twenty-nine Freshmen of yesterday, sophomores of today, juniors of tomorrow, and in the dim but certain future, seniors. During our yesterday we struggled and suffered in that most lowly of all positions-freshmen! But that struggling and suffering toughened us, and lowly beginnings lead to good foundations, so we did not suffer long. We soon learned our place and determined to make the most of it. We conquered those problems of programs, unknown teachers, and home rooms, and gathering up all our courage, we proceeded to get acquainted. When we looked around us we found that this school was a good place to be, so we earnestly worked to become good citizens of our high school. Last fall we returned with a feeling of coming home-not invading a foreign land. We chose our places in the various school activities and set about im- proving ourselves and our surroundings with that boundless enthusiasm of the sophomore. Two hundred sixty-eight of us have survived the various tests and trials of our years here. Our work in this school is but half done, so we look to our tomorrows for the fulfillment of our plans and dreams of today. Superior Sophomoresl No one need worry about thern, every face shows a student who, half way through, knows just what he wants, and some of them think they have it. In other words they're just know-it-alls, getting al- most unbearable. We would do some- thing about them but we are going so soon. We'll leave them to N. H. S. They'll get along.

But time moved on and we freshmen lost our shiny, new look, we finally reached the place where some people actually confused us with sophomores! After this we relaxed and turned to more advanced matters, we dared ask for library permits! By Christmas vacation we felt truly experienced. We compared notes on the teachers and planned what we would do next semester. ln january we received our first report cards from the high school, and the next day we grinned at the new lot of freshmen, but the new ones learned quickly, too, and with this now seasoned addition we number three hundred twelve. We are looking forward to and planning for our next three years in this building. Watch for us! Shy freshmen come out and pose! Of course, they aren't exactly dignified, no- body expects it. Here they are, presented in the un- changed, uncensored, un- touched snapshots. The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth! judge for yourself their first appear- ance in the Rosennial.

Such is an excerpt from the Constitution of the National Honor Society. The obiect of this chapter is to create an enthusiasm for scholarship, stimu- late a desire to render service, promote worthy leadership, and encourage the development of character in the pupils of Newcastle High School. The local chapter is now five years old and its membership this year was eighteen. Miss Westhafer, as Dean of Girls, serves as its efficient sponsor. Although during the past year the Honor Society has enforced the hall patrol and sponsored the big brother and sister act, this organization is more honorary than active.

The Orchestra is looking forward to a large program next year when there will be several additions from the junior High Or- chestra. DEPARTMENT BOYS' GLEE CLUB For the first time in the history of N. H. S. our masculine vocal- ists have been organized into a Boys' Glee Club. They were or- ganized at the beginning of the first semester when the music department was enlarged. The Glee Club is now composed of twenty voices. The first public appearance of the Boys' Glee Club was made at the first meeting of the High School P. T. A. They are antici- pating many more such occurrences as they are rapidly improving. This group, as are all of our musical organizations, is under the direction of Miss Dorsey.

Page forty-one PHOENIX STAFF Page forty-two The members of the Phoenix Staff of the first semester, l937- l938, completed their work with satisfaction because they up- held the ideals of Newcastle High School through their literary efforts. ln October, Mary Polk, Mary Katherine Ashton, Mildred Reed, and james Chance were sent to the lndiana High School Press Association convention held at Franklin. When these students returned, they had secured much valuable information that aided them in the publication of the Phoenix. Questions and sugges- tions of the staff members were welcomed by their advisor and sponsor, Mr. Greenstreet, whose never ceasing aid also contrib- uted largely to their success. To the best of their ability they emulated the standards set forth by the Indiana High School Press Association Code of Ethics.

They are now sponsored by Miss Vivian. The club membership is now to full capacity with every member render- ing her best toward the club's ideals which are to develop each member mentally, spiritually, and physically ancl to render school and community service. The Tri-l-li members are willing workers and true boosters for N. H. S., rendering community services by helping with Red Cross Drives and similar local affairs. One example of their true charity spirit is seeing that many unfortunate little girls receive dressed dolls at Christmas. The Tri-Hi's are a lively and progressive group of girls interested in girls and their welfare. The New Castle Hi-Y Club was organized in l9Z8 with the purpose of creating, maintaining, and extending throughout . the school and community high standards of Christian char- acter. The code is "Clean Speech, Clean Living, and Clean Scholarship." Under the able leadership of the two faculty sponsors, Mr. - William E. jones, Mr. Fred Goar, and the Y. M. C.

VOCATIONS HOME ECONOMICS In line with the modern trend to empha- size the practical phases of education, l-lome Economics was made a major subject this year. Classes met daily instead of weekly and thus, much more was accomplished. Full credit is now given in Foods, Home Manage- ment, Hygiene and Home Nursing, Clothing, Textiles, and The Selection and Care ot Ready-to-wear Clothing. These many departments are under the capable guidance ot Miss Wright and Mrs. Fisher. I rzqc forty-s'iw MANUAL TRAINING At the beginning of the second semester, l938, Manual Training was made a major subject instead of a minor. This is only one of the many opportunities that are to be given to the boys of N. H. S. This new technical expansion program that is being planned for the boys will more than likely be in effect in the near future and will include a new up-to-date printing course, agriculture, and others. This expansion program is under the di- rection of Mr. Pitcher. SP Do you care for a play or an address? ln our N. H. S. "Little Theater" may be found exotic her- oines and handsome heroes in many exciting scenes. Or it you prefer, when the stage has been cleared, there may be "silver tongued" orators who will appear and give you the address of the evening. Or perhaps you would like two debate teams to decide some im- portant question of the day. My, what an excit- ing evening! EECH DEPARTMENT The year l937-38 has been one of the most active years of the Speech Department, the major activity having been the celebration of the Horace Mann Centennial. The Dramatic Section sponsored, as its main feature in the Centennial pro- gram, "The Hoosier School Master", a three-act dramatization of Edward Eggleston's novel of the same title. This play was under the direction of Miss Rucker and Mr. Burr, with Mary Polk and james Forrest playing the leading roles, supported by a cast ot twenty-seven students. Mr. Burr's dramatic classes gave twelve public productions during the year, including "Fiat Lux", "Two Gentleman of the Bench", and "Sweet and Twenty". The Public Speaking Section entered several contests throughout the year. Among these were the Rotary contest in which joseph Payne placed third in the district. ln the State Oratorical Contest at Wabash, Morton Goldberg placed second, giving him the privilege ot participating in the National Con- test at Wooster, Ohio. The contest in honor of Horace Mann was won by Morton Goldberg. Page fm tif sewn gf' fnrly-1'fylIf The spirit of N. H.

Stephen "Gris" Baker Wilbur "Strings" Allen "Strings," a Trojan hardwood luminary of old, guides the destiny of our basketeers with a cool mind, steady hand, and a calculating foresight. The faculty and student body of Newcastle High School are duly proud of those individuals who comprise the coaching staff. An enviable aggregate of coaches is ours. We are fortunate in having one of the most capable and well- known groups in the state to represent our athletic department. Their diligent and cheerful work, combined with high ideals of sportsman- ship, has resulted in a record of success and achievement. Always overcoming the many obstacles that confronted them, always reaching for a higher goal, they have instilled in their proteges an extremely valuable spirit of persistence. Gertrude Vivian A tennis player of great note. In conjunction with her admirable coaching qualities, she has received and maintained the re- spect and admiration of all her charges. Page fifty Their untiring efforts and con- stant spark of enthusiasm, their eagerness and willingness to co- operate are fundamental factors of their success. Perseverance tempered with patience, the desire to win over- shadowed only by their desire to play the game to the hilt and play it fairly. A great responsibility is in the capable hands of these carefully selected few. The task of building character in unison with cham- pions is a difficult one, but we feel confident that this end will be maintained and fostered in the forthcoming years.

Amassing a total of l35 points against their opponents' 69, win- ning 6 games and losing 2, with one scoreless tie, they compared equally with the championship aggregation of '35. The men of Troy opened the season by crushing a highly vaunted Anderson outfit, 27-6. After completely outplaying Muncie in the first half, the Bearcats unleashed 3 devastating onslaught that swept the fighting green under to their first efeat. The Trojans rolled to a 35-O victory over the hapless Rushville Lions. Displaying a concentrated attack, they rode over the Red Devils of Rich- mond, l9-7. The team then rose to the heights as they outplayed and outfought a highly- favored Marion team. They followed this triumph by dispelling a stubborn Connersville eleven, l5-7. The jeff Broncos, Conference Champs, eked out a heart breaking 7-O win on an early break. The men of Troy had to be satisfied with a O-O tie as Richmond played inspired ball. The team climaxed a brilliant season with an easy and farcical victory over the gallant Noblesville Millers. Newcastle 0 Richmond Newcastle l9 Nob ville The job of student manager is a thankless one. Versatility is a requisite, labor is their lot. Behind the scenes these boys are an important cog in the wheel of progress. The plaudits of the crowds are never meant for their ears.

Their tireless efforts are worths unrecognized, yet valued requisites to the teams' success. lames R. Keys Earl Cable Page fifty-one 3 13' Page fifty-two . ah' Taking a place among the greats of former years, Man- uel Roth, a stellar, hard- driving tackle, was at his best when the odds were greatest. His was an out- standing will and determina- tion to win. john Bryson, captain and quarterback, furnished the spark that drove the team. He was a canny and inspiring leader. junior Poling, a willing and efficient worker, was always a stalwart lineman with an- other year to play, Robert Fletcher, an excep- tionally good offensive wing- man, fought his way to a regular berth in his junior year. Pass catching was his forte. Robert Modlin was always a steady and reliable snap- per-back. Reserve a place in the hall of fame for "Bob" next year. Ernest Tidrow, tough as they come, will undoubtedly be a shining light in the Tro- jan forward wall next year. Alva Murray, driving the team to its fullest extent while at the helm, was an- other hold over. "Never say die" was his by-word. james Turner, the out- standing halfback in this part of the state, will reach un- precedented heights, we pre- dict. Kenneth Keckman, handi- capped by injuries, neverthe- less proved his mettle as a wearer of the Green. We lose him this year. Donald Mastin, a speedy running guard and stalwart defensive man, shone in many games this season. He should go places in his senior year. Sammy Owens capably and efficiently took over a half- back position vacated by in- jury. A vicious ball carrier and blocking back, he re- turns to the fold next year. David Hays, a big bruising sophomore tackle, has two more years to show his wares. A great deal is expected. john "Silent" McDaniels, slowed down by early injuries, came back with a vengeance. This top-notch guard will be hard to replace. Rex "Romeo" Wilkinson proved himself to be an ex- tremely valuable asset to the team. Operating irregularly as guard, Rex displayed a de- sire to play the game. We'll miss him. Charles "Pookum" Roper provided the comic relief. The loe Louis of the gridiron, or so he says, will gallop again next year. Arthur Turner, a big farm- er boy who made up for a lack of reasoning by his pun- ishing plunges through the middle, has two years more of competition. johnRifner,anotherripping back, has great prospects for the future. His stout-heart- ed offensive play was re- warded with a promotion to the first string reserves. Francis Good, whose splen- did defensive game and bang-up blocking made him a constant threat to all op- position, is another of the few seniors. Page fifty-three Imyqe fiffy-foul' Pha Woods was a sturdy replacement in the forward wall, his continued effort and perseverance made him an outstanding reserve. Robert Bender, an under- study at center, big and will- ing, forced the regulars to extend their utmost in order to maintain their prestige. Back next year. Lawrence Woolf covered the gridiron at a roving guard assignment. His slashing tackles more than made up for his slight stature. An- other holdover Iuminary. Paul Simerly, after four years of constant trying, fin- ally reached his place in the sun, took over a regular tackle assignment in the mid- dle of the year, and proceed- ed to prove his merit. Kenneth Martin, a big re- liable tackle, although handi- capped by injuries, proved his worth by several sparkling performances. Levi Bunch has that one great attribute, patience. When Levi was needed, he was right there doing to the best of his ability what he was told. More could not be asked. George Williams. When "Goggy" started plunging, the team started rolling. This smashing fullback returns next year. Charles Hays was a senior letterman who just missed. His constant plugging was always an inspiration. i igstikld ASKETBALL ,ij , i ii Newcastle 23 Hagerstown Newcastle , 24 Connersville Newcastle , l7 Muncie , ,, , , Newcastle , l2 Anderson ,,,,, ,, Newcastle , l 8 Tech. l lndpls.l , Newcastle , i6 Crawfordsville .

Keys Melvin Poer Bob Mahin When a team goes down in cle- feat, it is not too bitter when you know that that team gave ALL it had in an effort to win. When a team fights to the last ditch, fights until weary limbs can go no more, fights on sheer heart and courage alone and yet the pall of defeat drops again, then that team is not to be con- demned, Disaster struck early in the camp of the Green and White netters. With the unexpected resignation of three letter men, Allen was faced with the huge task of rebuilding the team. Slowly he built, with an eye to the future. The team lost with regularity as teamwork and co- ordination were painstakingly drilled into them. Then sudden- ly, led by Captain Ernie Tidrow, they found themselves, they be- gan to click, beating Logansport 22-l7, for their first victory in seventeen starts, then Green- field, finally rising to the heights by trouncing the State Champion Anderson Indians in a thriller 20- IS, The first ten are all under- classmen. They learned to lose this year and next year they'Il learn to win. Aided and abetted by a promising second team the future holds great promise. Page fifly-five Page fifty-six Robert Modlin, an excel- lent center and a dangerous man under the basket, proved his ability and should "shine" next year. Marshall Koontz has been a freshman of great merit, we predict an outstanding career for "Coon Dog". Arthur Turner came up from the reserves to develop into an important cog in the Trojan machine. He has two more years of competition. Alva Murray has been dribbler deluxe, whose smashing offensive thrusts always netted results for this junior basketeer. Ernest Tidrow, captain and guard, a stellar defensive man, exhibited extreme pro- ficiency in holding the en- emy "hot shot" to a mini- mum of points. He is a junior. Robert Fletcher, a lumin- ary on offense, shot his way to a place in the North Cen- tral Conference scoring race as a junior. Sammy Owens, a consist- ent ball hawk and a steady- ing influence when the going got tough, returns next year. David Felix, a persistent and capable player, whose fight was an inspiration and whose effectiveness will un- doubtedly reach a new peak in his junior year. james Turner, a speed merchant and clever ball handler, is another junior. Warren Lewis, whose pot shots were his specialty, and whose spectacular shooting often pulled the team out of a tight spot, is a sophomore with a promising future. 4'5" GOLF Under the tutelage of Griz Baker, golf received an unusual amount of interest this season. Attracting a large group of prospective "divot-diggers", with the return of last year's top men, a successful sea- son seemed apparent. The roster of "mashie-wield- ers" was headed by "Dick" l-lufford, closely followed by Walter Ruby and "Dick" Kessler. A corps of promising underclassmen, including Kessel, Mor- rell, and Copeland, enhanced the season's outlook, Improving teams are gradually bringing golf to the fore. TRACK The largest number of boys in the annals of the school responded to the first call for track. Formerly a secondary sport, it is now taking a place alongside that of football and basketball, Its ranks, aug- mented by such sterling performers as Turner, Mc- Daniels, Selke, Roper, Watkins, Staley, Martin, and Felix, promise a season of great achievement. Built around a nucleus of underclassmen, Coach Smith will undoubtedly produce one of the greatest track and field aggregations ever to represent the Green and White. TENNIS Tennis is a relatively new sport in the athletic program of Newcastle High School. Reinstated only within the last few years, it has taken great strides toward attaining merited popularity and success. Under the capable supervision of Miss Vivian, an aspiring squad of netters worked out daily on the Memorial Park ccurts in anticipation of a successful season. Pacecl by "Don" Mastin, "Bob" Modlin, and Cortis Selke, prospects for a victorious campaign, present and future, are in evidence.

Our journey has been one on which we are able to retrospect with pride. Scarcely having reached the age of reason, our minds began to absorb and piece together bits of knowledge, gradually organizing those bits into logical and connected thoughts. As we progressed our minds began to assimilate and develop these thoughts. We were becoming educated. In the elementary years our education was extremely general in its scope, and it was not until we began our high school career that we found ourselves leaning toward some form of specialized training. Today is truly an age of specialization. We find those who advocate that too many are being gradu- ated from our universities each year to fill the available positions, however, I believe you will agree that the individual who possesses the essential attri- butes and is properly trained will find his place in the world in his chosen profession. Education does not consist merely of absorption of book knowledqe, but it involves the training of the mind to think coherently and logically. Education involves the building of a character that insures reliability, and the develop- ment of a personality that will place the individual's chances above those of the average person. ln a broad sense education includes all the experiences by which intelligence is developed, knowledge acquired, and character formed. ln a narrow sense it is the result of work done by such agencies as the home, the church, the school, and the community. The home is primarily the nursery of the school, which fosters education, and of the church which establishes high standards. A child is born, grows, and enters a school to learn the civic duties of a useful life. Thus, the school and the home must cooperate in the formation of this necessary intelligence, knowledge and character, likewise, the church and the home must cooperate in the maintaining of the high living standards. Then community life, which is the proving ground for the work done by these other agencies, provides many opportunities for the graduates. Our educational institutions have done their part in providing us with the necessary information, and the developing of our minds and bodies to the extent that we are equipped to go forward and take our places in the community. Now, reviewing the twelve years which we have just completed, we find that many sacrifices have been made by our parents, teachers, and by our citi- zens in order that we might be here today in cap and gown. To our schools which have trained us, to you citizens who have supported us, and to our fam- ilies who have loved us and labored to make our education possible we owe a debt which can only be repaid by a similar service to others. As future citizens and parents we pledge ourselves to that task. But above all, we owe it to our- selves to grasp our opportunities and direct our efforts toward the develop- ment of clean lives and successful careers. Thus, truly, we finish to begin. Charles l. Kennedy HISTORY Colors: Turquois and coral. Motto: "Finished to begin." Flower: Briar Clift Rose. ln the fall of nineteen thirty-four, three hundred thirty-four freshmen entered the halls of N. H. S. to start their high school careers. After a year of the common freshmen trials, two hundred eighty-eight survived to become sophomores. This year was hard, for still more fell by the wayside. Only two hundred thirty-four became juniors and had the fun of staging the Prom. ln the fall of nineteen thirty-seven, one hundred forty-six dignified seniors met to organize the class of nineteen hundred thirty-eight. This year Mr. Valentine was sponsor of the senior class, continuing the guidance that he had so ably given us during our junior year. The following officers were chosen to represent our class: president, Charles Kennedy, vice-president, William Guyer, secretary, Betty Mahin, and treasurer, Martha Lea Field. Committees were appointed to advise the class in its selection of motto, color, and flower. The following chairmen were named: motto, Francis Good, color, Helen Schuffman, and flower, Sarah Ellen Cluggish. This year Miss juanita lane Rucker was chosen as sponsor of the Rosennial. She appointed Martha Ellen White as Editor, and Walter Ruby as Business Manager. "The Whole Town's Talking", our class play starring Cecil Cunning- ham and Mary Polk, was directed by Mr. Horace Burr, jr. We leave behind us, we hope, a record of work well done, of time well spent, and of friendships well made. We take with us memories rich in their story of happy hours spent in this building and of knowledge gained here. Whatever our future may bring, our years here will neverbe forgotten. POEM GOODBYE As we come to the end of our High School days, We say "Goodbye" with a tear V To our happy and carefree ways 9 And our teachers and classmates dear. So forward into Life go we, Classmates of '38. We'll sail like happy ships at sea Onward to meet our fate. So carefully our course we'll steer By the chart of lessons learned, The storms of life we'll never fear And hope for rewards well earned.

"The Whole Town's Talking" concerned the daughter of a well-to-do manu- facturer in a small Ohio town whose father wished her to marry the junior partner in the firm. ln order to escape this alliance, the manufacturer invented a fictitious love affair with a moving picture star. This affair set the whole town talking and was climaxed by the appearance of the film star in person. Page sixty-two JUNIOR PROM Friday evening, May Zl , the class of l938 entertained the class of I937 with the annual junior-Senior Prom. As usual the queen and her attendants were chosen by popular vote of both classes to reign over the affair. This year the honor was bestowed upon Betty Mahin, queen, and Sarah Ellen Cluggish, Mabel Danley, Rachael Durham, and lean Myers, attendants. From the high school gymnasium, which was bedecked with rose and gray streamers in keeping with the senior class colors, flowed the strains of sweet music played by the Campus Club Orchestra. ln the program suggestive of the coronation in England, Pierre Long, Presi- dent of the senior class, presided as King with the Queen and Royal family, which included Wanda Mae Stewart and Don Mastin as Duke and Duchess of Kent, Vivian Wolverton and Bob Branson as Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, George Denton as the Earl of Harewood, Margaret Thompson as Queen Mary, Mary Polk as Princess Louise, Rex Chadwick as the Duke of Connaught, Mar- ian Bowyer as Wallis Warfield and Bill Barnard as the Duke of Windsor. A royal parade, in which the King, Queen, attendants and all other members of the royal family participated, preceded the Grand March in which every one was invited to take a part. A seven ring circus, with Francis Good as ring master, was presented for entertainment. The various skits were titled: "Such is Life", "Riley School- house Scene", "Believe-It-or-Not", "The Penny Scene", "The Wedding Scene", and the "Clown Scene". Those who took part in the entertainment were Mabel Danley, Levi Bunch, Viola LaBoyteaux, Kenneth Heckman, Marion Reavis, Vivian Wolverton, Doris Sullivan, Rosalie McWilliams, james R. Keyes, Charles Kennedy, George Den- ton, Bill Bailey, Bob Branson, Charles Hayes, Crystal Mae Covalt, Willard Davis, lack Hayes, Thelma Cross, Martha Ellen White, Lucille Harvey, Wanda Mae Stewart, janet Bergin, Margaret Thompson, Helen Schuffman, Richard Kessler, and Paul Rector. Throughout the evening refreshments were served. MAY FESTIVAL One of the newer senior traditions in N. H. S. is the May Festival on the first Sunday in May, which is sponsored by the Business and Profes- sional Women's Club. This year it fell on May l, and the gayety of the occasion was enhanced by colorful decorations carried out in the class colors and flowers. An elaborate program in- cluding a May Pole dance, music, songs, and folk dances followed the crowning of the May queen who, together with her attendants, was chosen by popular vote of the senior girls. This year the queen was Margaret Wrights- man. Her attendants were Rachael Durham, Dorothy King, Martha Bland, Sarah Cluggish, and Faye Virgne. Each year awards are given for the highest attainments in the commercial field. The committee for the Breakfast included: Atha A. Pinnick, Program, Irene Clifton, Dec- oration, and Goldie Kessler, Food. Katherine Kessel is president of the club. ...W i Page sixty-three AUTOGRAPHS We thank- Hurdle,Studlo Mr. Valentlne Faculty Student Body lndlanapolls Engravnng Company for their help toward pubhshmg thls Roeenmal Thus annual printed by lndlanapolls The Benton Review Shop Engraving Fowler lnd Company
