members of the Latin Club really uwent Romanf, Draped in im-
provised togas, these students enjoyed a three-course meal com-
posed of Roman food. Acting as Romans, however, is not a once-
a-year occasion, for at every meeting students representing Roman
officials preside. A consul acts as president while the secretary is
known as a scriptor. An annual event which is eagerly awaited
by all Latin students is the contest sponsored by the Latin Club.
Miss Thelma Cooley and Miss Narcie Pollitt are sponsors.

HE Spanish Club celebrates Christmas by observing in modified
form the old Mexican customs of posada and pinata. The Span-
iards, carrying little Hgurines of the characters in the Christmas
story, sang and knocked at many doors. When finally they were
welcomed into a home, the joyous celebration began. A child was
given a stick with which he tried to break the earthenware jar or
pinata, filled with favors and sweets. When he succeeded, treats
were scattered to the guests. Through studying these rites, and
through singing Spanish songs, playing Spanish games, and see-
ing Spanish movies, the members become acquainted with the
customs and habits of Spanish-speaking people. Miss Mary Eliza-
beth Thumma is sponsor.

HAT does the library offer the teen-age girl?" was the question
under discussion at a recent Library Club meeting. Many magazines, it
was found, have sections of special interest to teen-agers on such prob-
lems as clothes, make-up, and dating. In addition, the Library Club de-
votes much time to book reviews. Mrs. Betty Baker is sponsor.

EWS of Howe activities is carried to the boys in service through the
efforts of the Hi-Y Club members who mail HOWE TOWERS to service-
men. An important social event of the Hi-Y Club is the Heart Hop,
sponsored by this club, for which members choose five girls as candi-
dates for "Sweetheart.', Candidates chosen were Marjorie Garrett, Vir-
ginia Reese, Carol Simmons, Mary Lois Stitt, and Patricia Sullivan. Mar-
jorie Garrett was elected Hi-Y Sweetheart. Each spring, as the May
Pageant approaches, these boys select a Philosopher who represents the
Spirit of the Tower. Throughout the year, Hi-Y boys attend local and

lunch passes during every lunch period. Each spring, this club se-
lects five junior girls as candidates for Violet Queen. The girl elected by
the student body reigns at the annual May Pageant. Work is combined

derclassmen for the HOWE TOWER, and to explain briefly the workings
of the HOWE TOWER staffs and the HILLTOPPER staff to the English

classes I-IV. Their meetings, sponsored by Miss Ruth Zitzlaff, consist of
talks by the editors of the various staffs and by members of the News

ICTURES, proportion wheels, dummies, and rubber cement have
been the constant companions of the HII,LTOPPER staff members.
Early last spring, staff members of the HILLTOPPER were selected.
Then the staff assisted at the Autograph Party, gave the HILL-
TOPPER dance, and drew up a dummy. When the summer vacation
was over, the work really began. The fall subscription campaign
was started by Jack Rennoe, business manager, and his assistant
Roland Swingley. Under the direction of Virginia Reese, editor-
in-chief, and Mary Frances Patterson, associate editor, the staff
gave an assembly program, the Brown and Gold Dance, and spon-
sored the Brown Boy and Golden Girl contest. Margaret Rennoe,
supervising the taking of homeroom pictures, began the seasonal
rush of yearbook pictures. Lucille Broeking and Carolyn Sullivan
were in charge of club and activities pictures. Because of a success-
ful athletic season, Bob Bowles, sports editor, found the cutting of
copy his biggest problem. The senior pictures, taken under Martha
Scottis supervision, were ready to be mounted. The make-up edi-
tors, Jean Carpenter and Suzanne Fisher, with their assistants, Bar-
bara Williams and Shirley Cloud, worked diligently to meet the
deadlines. Wlieii the masterpiece was finally sent to the engraver
and to the printer, the whole staff began waiting eagerly for the
time when the first of the 1200 copies could be presented. Miss
Betty L. Williams is sponsor of Howe publications. Valuable assist-
ance in copy reading has been given the staff by Miss Florence Guild
and Miss Ruth Zitzlaff.

of achievements when, on
September 8, Athletic Director Samuel T. Kelley issued uniforms to
approximately seventy boys who had reported for Howe's first football
practice. Training began almost immediately, and the boys were put
through two weeks of fundamental drilling before they were divided
into four intramural squads under the direction of Mr. Wade Fuller,
Mr. Fred Lemley, Mr. Wathen Leasor, and Mr. Ray Bowman. Mr.
Kelley,s chief assistant was Mr. Thomas Stirling, who served as head line
coach. Coach Lewis Gilfoy also assisted as did the coaches of the four
The intramural teams immediately named themselves Leasor's Greasers,
Lemleyis Rapid Calculators, Bowman's Bruisers, and Fuller's Brushmen.
Intramural games were played every Tuesday and Friday. Fuller's Brush-
men topped the standings at the end of intramural play with four vic-
tories and no defeats. Leasor,s Greasers and Lemley's Rapid Calculators
both had two victories and two defeats, while Bowman's Bruisers were
without a victory in four starts. A varsity squad was then chosen from
the four intramural squads and began drilling for the two scheduled
games with Warren Central and the Silent Hoosiers.
Warren Central's aerial attack was too much for Howe's inexperienced
Hornets, and they dropped their first football tilt 18-0. The Warriors
were held scoreless during the first and third quarters, but they clicked
for three touchdowns via the air during the second period. In the fourth,
Howe staged some passes of its own, but a 35-yard run by Larrison fell
two yards short of the goal.
The team's second football game proved a little more successful, and they
dropped the Silent Hoosiers 25-19 on a rain-soaked Held. The Silent
Hoosiers opened the scoring with a 40-yard touchdown run through the
mud, but Lewis Larrison, Howe's left halfback, came through with the
first of his three touchdowns to even the count. Dave Wfyand, Howe
fullback, made the conversion and Larrison scored again a minute later
on a 35-yard run around end. Larrisonls third touchdown came on a
25-yard pass from Wyand. A 56-yard march by the Silent Hoosiers was
good for a touchdown after which Tony George, Howe quarterback,
ran the ball across the goal for the last score of the game.

T was a great year for basketball at Howe and the Hornet cagers ended
the season as Indianapolis Sectional Kings and unofficial City Champions.
Coach Lewis Gilfoy's varsity basketball team also broke all existing rec-
ords for a Howe team, setting new records in both individual and team
scoring, and in games won and lost.
The Hornets finished their regularly scheduled season with a record of
15 wins and 3 losses which exactly duplicated last year's performance.
However, this year's varsity squad really brought home the bacon when
they crashed through with 4 straight wins in the Sectionals to capture
the Hrst tournament crown in the history of Howe.
The varsity men also gained undisputed possession of the unofficial city
basketball championship by thumping Manual 48 to 25 in their last game
against a city team. This gave the team a record of 7 wins and 1 loss
against city teams. Shortridge placed second in the city standings with
5 victories in 7 starts and Manual dropped to third after our triumph
with a record of 7 wins and 3 losses. The team ended its record season
with 19 wins in 23 starts, thus eclipsing last year's record of 18 victories
in 22 starts.
In compiling this fine record the netmen scored 902 points to their op-
ponents, 672 which is an average margin victory of 10 points per game.
This total was also a new Howe record as was the average of 39 points
per game for the 23 games.
John Elliott finished the regular season with a total of 166 points, and he
went on to tally a record-breaking 62 points in the four games of Sec-
tional play to set a new individual scoring mark of 228 points in 22
games. The previous mark was 198 set by Jack Buchanan last year in the
same number of games. Long John also added 17 points to his total in the
Regional game with Anderson to boost his total points to 245 for the
season. Bob Banks broke the old scoring record for most points in one
game when he erased the 21. point total set by Bob Houck last year.
Banks swished a total of 24 markers through the net in the Greenfield
game, and finished the season with a total of 153 points. Other members
of the team also did a great job of scoring. Bob Cole scored 168 points
during the year and Arnold Koehler and Bill Watson cracked the century
mark with 117 and 116 points, respectively.

OACH Lewis Gilfoy,s varsity cagers really lived up to advance predic-
tions when they captured the first Sectional crown for Howe. In downing
Manual, Crispus Attucks, Cathedral, and Shortridge, the lighting Hornets
scored a total of 185 points for an average of 46 points per game and lim-
ited their opponents to about 34 points per game.
In the Hrst game of the Sectional the varsity men swamped Manual for the
third straight time of the year 42 to 28. The Hornets jumped into an early
9 to 0 lead and were never behind in the game. Arnold Koehler took high
point honors in the contest with 16 points and Bob Cole totaled 10 points.
Long John Elliott flashed the form which gave him high point honors for
the Sectional and led the Hornets to a 45 to 27 victory over a hard-fight-
ing Crispus Attucks quintet. Elliott controlled both backboards during
the tilt and dropped 20 points through the draperies to take top scoring
honors. Cole again played a great game and garnered a total of 14 markers.
A rough playing Cathedral team gave the boys a tough battle for three
quarters, but the Hornets exploded during the last quarter and went on
to win 45 to 34. The Irish gained an early 5 to 0 lead and the count was
knotted at 16 all at the half.The third quarter was also played on even
terms and the Hornets went into the last quarter with a 29 to 26 lead.
With three minutes to go, however, the team got hot and pulled away.
Long John again led the scoring with 16 points and Cole took runner-up
honors with 12.
The team really hit its stride against Shortridge in the final game of the
Sectional tournament and the Hornets beat the highly-rated Blue Devils
53 to 48. The score was tied five times during this torrid contest and the
lead changed hands a total of seven times. Howe got off to an early lead
and was ahead 13 to 6 at the quarter post. However, Shortridge came back
strong in the second quarter and when the half-time gun sounded, Howe
was holding a slim 23 to 22 lead. In the third quarter Shortridge took over
the lead with two quick baskets but great ball-hawking by Bill Watson of
Howe helped put the team back in front. Wfatson stole the ball and passed
to Cole for 2 points and then scored on two quick buckets himself after
again stealing the ball. The fourth quarter began with Howe leading 40
to 35. Elliott who had been playing a great game through the whole con-
test dropped in three pivots and a tip-in to boost the Hornet's lead to 48
to 37. Shortridge staged a game rush to overtake the leaders but the margin
was too great. John Elliott and Bill Kegley, rival centers, tied for individ-
ual scoring honors with 21 points apiece. For the fourth straight time
Cole finished second best with 13 markers.
Cheerleaders Louise Miller, Joan Bruckman, and Beverly Hull helped
inspire the Hornets to victory in the Sectional Tourney. Because of
space limitations we were unable to include their picture.

ISPLAYING the championship form which had earned for them the
rating as the number one team in the state, the Anderson Indians blasted
the hopes of Howe backers when they rolled over the Hornet netmen
46 tO 33.
The game was a close battle for three quarters, although Howe was be-
hind during most of the contest. The Hornets led 8 to 7 at the end of the
first quarter but Anderson came back in the second stanza to go ahead
11 to 8. Howe then put on a spurt of its own and went into the lead 13
to 11 but the Indians came right back with three straight buckets to as-
sume command at the half, 17 to 13. During the third quarter the Hor-
nets managed to hold their own and the fourth quarter started with
Anderson still leading by 4 points, 26 to 22. However, the greater
experience of the Indians began to tell and they gradually increased their
lead during this last stanza to put the game on ice. John Elliott was high
point man for the Hornets with 17 points but J. Anderson of the Indians
led in total points with 20 markers.

Completing their schedule with seven consecutive triumphs was the fea-
ture of a winning season by the Howe Reserve Basketball Team. Wfhen
the final gun had marked the close of hostilities, next year's varsity
cagers' had racked up a fine record of 13 wins and 5 losses.
The reserves were a bit slow in getting started, winning six and losing
five, before hitting their stride. As the season progressed and the boys
continually improved, as shown by their record, Howe was promised
fine varsity material for next season.
Coach Wathen Leasor's reserve netters were led by high scoring Carl
Edwards and Harry Branson with 106 and 99 points, respectively, and
the aggressive Bob Bennett, who garnered 78 points.
Coach Ray Bowman's freshman team came through with a fine season,
winning 12 games while losing only four. The Hornets tied for the Fresh-
man City Championship with Cathedral, whom they defeated twice dur-
ing their campaign.
The yearlings were led by Hugh Moreillon who swished the nets for 121
points to come close to a new Howe record. Finishing right behind Hugh
were Ray Evans with 74 points, and George Spradling with 38.

HE Hornet thinly-clads finished their 1943 season with a rec-
ord of seven victories in eight starts in dual and triangular meets
and they also captured runner-up honors in the City Meet, the
Southport Relays, and the Sectionals. Howe failed to hold her
city title which she won the year before and also failed to repeat
her domination in the Sectionals. However, the team was some-
what weakened by the loss of Walter Gilchrist in the high jump
and high hurdles and the loss of Bob Houck in the quarter mile
and relays. Both boys, who were consistent scorers in their events,
left just before the City Meet. Houck entered Purdue and Gil-
christ joined the Navy.
Tech finished far ahead of the field in the City Meet with 61M
points to Howeis second place total of 41. However, Howe took
more first places than any other school, scoring victories in four
events. Ralph Toney won both the 100- and 220-yard dashes,
Bob Banks took the half mile, and Paul Webb outjumped the rest
of the field in the broad jump. -
In the Sectionals, Howe again finished second, scoring 381f3
points to Washington's 39 1!3. However, Howe qualified more
men for the State Meet than any other school entered. Toney
again took first in the 100 and 220, setting a new record in the
former with the time of :10.1. The old mark was :10.3 set in
1940 by William Howard of Washington. Others who qualified
for the State were Bob Stitt in the 220, Bob Banks and Max
Fullen in the half mile, Bill Watson in the low hurdles, and Paul
Webb in the broad jump. Bob Banks accounted for Howe's only
point in the State Meet by taking fifth in the half mile. Ralph
Toney, a favorite in the sprints, pulled a muscle in the Sectionals
and failed to compete.

FTER copping four straight dual meets, the Hornet Golf Team car-
ried away top honors in the Howe Invitational Tourney at the Pleasant
Run course to finish the season undefeated.
The Brown and Gold Linksmen started their winning ways by thump-
ing Cathedral 11-1, following up with a sizzling 10-8 victory over Tech
and then once more besting Cathedral 20-4. Next the Blue Devils of
Shortridge came out to see what they could do about stopping Coach
Fred Lemleyis golfers, only to lose 18M-S M. In the Howe Invitational,
the team continued to show its superiority by trouncing their three rivals
again. Howe's foursome took 315 strokes followed by Tech with 339.

Howe's cross country team wound up one of its most suc-
cessful seasons by taking second place in the City Invita-
tional Cross Country Meet held on the Howe course. Top
honors in the meet went to Manual, with 40:5 points. Howe
was 4 points off the pace with a team total of 44, and
Tech, last year's winner, finished third with SS. Shortridge
trailed the pack with 71.
Paul Stoyonovich of Manual copped individual honors in
the meet when he crossed the tape in the automatic record
time of 1O:12.S for the new two mile course. Following
Stoyonovich to the finish line was Bob Banks of Howe, the
pre-meet favorite by virtue of his season record and a pre-
vious win over Stoyonovich. Banks had taken five first place
ribbons in season meets, while losing only to County Cham-
pion Bill Powers of Ben Davis. Russell Hayes finished third
for Howe, and Howard Caldwell placed seventh to complete
our scoring in the meet.
In regularly scheduled meets, the Hornet Harriers won
from Washington, Warren Central, Ben Davis, and Short-
ridge and lost to Tech and Manual. Much of the credit for
this fine season goes to our new coach, Mr. Ray Bowman.

IRLS in G. A. A. are active throughout the year in a varied
program. The members are given awards on a point basis for sport
activities in which they participate during class and outside of
school. A first year award is given to the girls who have earned
150 points, a second year award to those who acquire 250 points,
and the highest, the third year medal, to those who earn 350
The Winter Wfonderland Dance at Christmastime was a gay time
for everyone. The G. A. A. sponsored the afternoon's entertain-
ment of a stage show and choruses, followed by dancing.
With the new semester came tourneys. Volleyball and ping pong
were scheduled as usual. Last season,s intramural volleyball win-
ner was a fourth hour class composed of Betty Alberty, Janice
Bayne, Patty Holtsclaw, Roselyn Bittner, Clara Virt, Georgianna
Brammer, Violette Swenson, Gloria Backer, and Marilyn Baker,
captain. Ping-pong champ was Angelina Velich who bested Anna
Wessel in the final game. This year a basketball tourney for up-
perclass girls was added. Class teams were organized and the win-
ners played to pick the class champs. Then they battled the gym
assistants for the school title.
In April, sixty girls gave a demonstration for the State Physical
Education Meeting to display the program of physical condition-
ing in high schools. Other G. A. A. features in the spring were
archery, commando trainings, baseball games, track, and rhyth-
mic drills for the May Festival.
