Many different factors contribute their
share in building the character ol' the mod-
ern boy and girl, and among these the school
plays a large part. Four formative ycars are
spent in the high school, under the tuition
and guidance of the faculty. Not only book
knowledge itself must be gained but habits
of application and industry must be learned
in order for the youth to succeed in the fu-
ture. He enters as a timorous. inexperienced
freshman, undergoes the usual hazing and
emerges at the end of the school year a
cocky sophomore. Pursuing the even tenor
of the usually uneventful second year the
student begins to find his niche in the var-
ious studies and activities of the school.
Added responsibilities of the iunior year and
application to studies bring the youth to the
long anticipated goal-beinfr a senior, Cliff'
nified and poised. Thus after four years the
American Boy and Girl, who have made the
most of their opportunities. are graduated

May we, the Seniors, propose a toast?
"Here's to the School Board, the broad- minded, understanding, and capable body
that has guided Tipton High School through another highly successful year. It can truly
be said that no other school in the country can boast of a fairer, abler executive board
than Tipton High. You have acted wisely in all your dealings, and we realize that your
every effort was bent toward one main purpose-the betterment of the school. We are
more than glad to have the honor ol' graduating from such a school, because we feel
that even in our later years, your innuence upon us, as students, will be keenly felt.
So, in behalf of the student body, we, the Class of '39, salute you!
We thought you'd like informal snaps
Of teachers pictured here and there
Some smiling, others grim, perhaps,
But all of them caught unaware.
O wad some power the giftie gie us to see ourselves as ithers see us. "

"Calling P-A-G-E lil." Hello. is this Lett's7 May I speak to Bob, please? Hello, Bob? This is Wil-
bur Williams. How are you? Oh, I thought maybe you would like to chat over our old times-school
days, perhaps? Remember that day back in September, l927, when we met down the alley by the old
clubhouse, and trudged so unwillingly to school for the first time? I'll say, we've gone to school a long
time since then, and learned a few things, too! Sure, I remember how scared we were when we went
to Junior High School for the first time, and how mixed up we got with our classes. Well, as far as that
goes we were pretty green as freshmen, too, but nobody paid any attention to us that year, for that
was the year Tipton had the best basketball team in the state. What's that? Oh, yes, that was the first
year we had ever elected class officers. Jim Pyle was our president. Wasn't our vice president Betty
Benson? Rachel Stoner began her "three-year reign" as class officer by being secretary-treasurer.
I'll say we were the "stuff" the next year. We knew all about Tipton High then, and could we
throw it into the freshies? Raymond Williams was our president for the first time, Paul Achenbach was
vice president, and Rachel was secretary-treasurer again. Remember Mr. Runyon at our few class
meetings, and our outing at the Noblesville park?
You know, come to think about it, we had quite a time raising money t'or the reception last year.
Of all the hard work and penny-pinching we did at the ball gamesl I'll never forget that. We got
settled, though, by the frugal guidance ol' lVIr. Cline. The worst part of the whole year was the fact
that after we were pretty well settled as upperclassmen, we found out that we were still considered
underclassmen by the faculty, and seniors. Say, I wonder how last year's president, Bill Crim, is
doing at Winchester this year. Yes, Rachel was a class officer again, and Barbara Martin was secretary.
The class wasn't short a single cent at the end of the year, even if I was treasurer.
Remember how shocked the class was after the first senior class meeting, when they woke up
and discovered they had elected three Williamses to office? Raymond was president again, Dorothy
May was treasurer, and I had the honor of being secretary. You were vice president. I believe Miss
Spencer and Mr. Hiatt are to be congratulated for the excellent guidance through the year, too.
That just about closes our school days and our topic of conversation, so I'd just better say goodbye.
"Success comes in cans, failures in can'ts."

"Calling P-A-G-E 20. Hello! Is this Fretz's? May I speak to George, please? Hello.
George? This is Wilbur Williams. Say, aren 't you a freshman class oflicer? I thought
so. Then you can tell me something about the freshmen this year. Who are the oflicers?
--Jim Tudor is president, yourself, vice president, Joanne Mott, secretary-treasurer,
and Miss Kegerreis, sponsor, Are you planning any kind of a party for the class? Oh, I
see, you're planning on having one, but you don't know when or where as yet. Well, lots
of luck, and thanks, George. So long-"
The freshman class is not well known
In annals of high school fame,
But by the time they are full grown
We're sure they will have a name.
In numbers they outshine the rest,
In looks, too, they're not far behind.
We feel they're striving for the best
And that the best they'll surely find.

This year, because there were so tew subscribers to the Tiptonian, it seemed likely
that Tipton High School would have no annual. Frantically the salesmen rushed about,
trying' to sell more subscriptions betore the deadline. Slowly the money piled up until at
last, the day before the deadline, news was joyously received by the stall' members that
enough money had been collected to publish the Tiptonian!
Then began a period oi' work ot' a different sort. Group and informal pictures were
taken. Materials had to be assembled, typed, corrected, and re-typed. liach member was
responsible for a certain section ol' the book, and each worked toward the common
goal, "A better Tiptonian this year than ever before."
The Tiptonian Staff' ot' 1939 wishes to express its appreciation to Mr. Hiatt for his
judicial help and original ideas, to Mr. Stemen for the "extension ot' time," and to all
those who assisted in supplying material for this book.
The Hi-Y Club ofhcers are: Joseph Wiggins, President, Raymond Williams, Vice
President, John Bunch, Secretary, Bob Cage, Treasurer, and Mr. Trabue, Sponsor.
The Hi:Y has a membership of thirty-nine Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors, Fresh-
men not being eligible until the last six-week period.
An Americanization address was presented to the student body on November 17 by
Howard Meyer, promment Indianapolis attorney, sponsored by the Hi-Y.
The Club went swimming at the Kokomo Y. M. C. A. pool on February 8, and be-
fore the holidays assisted the Sunshine girls in giving their annual Christmas party.
President, Kathleen O'Baniong Vice President, Mary Jarrett, Secretary, Anna Brew-
erg Treasurer, Nina Trabueg Sponsor, Miss Edith Sowers.
This year the Sunshine Society took up the study of vocations, breaking away from
the social meetings of past years. Several people gave vocational talks. Among these were:
Mrs. Richards, Joan Hughes, and Jane Stewart from H. P. Wasson's at Indianapolis.
With Miss Stewart was a model for girls' ensembles and one for the mothers A surprise
was in store, for she had two of our own Sunshine girls as models, too.
As in former years, the girls fassisted by the Hi-Y boysj held Christmas and East-
er parties for the underprivileged children. At Thanksgiving S6V9l'3l baskets were given
to needy people.

Last fall, coached by Miss Goble, Elizabeth Nicholson won first place for girls and
Don Fretz won third place for boys in the North Central Indiana oratorical co ntest.
Their competitors were from Frankfort, Lebanon, Delphi, Lafayette, and Crawfords-
ville. We are truly proud of the honors this girl and boy have won for Tipton High School.
Special tests were conducted in each of the various commerce classes and the follow-
ing people were chosen to represent our school in the commercial contest, April 15, at Ball
State: Rachel Stoner, Edith Emehiser, and Nina Trabue fshorthandj ,Wilma Palmer, Julia
Ann Richards, and Martha Jean Patterson, ftypingj.
Tipton was represented in the state band contest, Saturday, Ap1'il 1, by Robert Cage
who won first in the saxophone contest, Madeline Hershman who won second on the
French horng Kenneth Hamilton who won second on the trumpet, and the brass quartet
which won second place. The entire band will participate in a contest at Bloomington at
a later date.
Tipton High School seemed to have real Latin scholars this year-at least from their
success in the contests. Karlann Smith placed first in freshman Latin, and Evelyn New-
house placed first in Caesar in the county contest. For their efforts each girl received a
small gold pin, and were eligible to enter the district contests. Credit must be given to
Miss Kegerreis for her excellent teaching.

C'ont'erence golf' tourney will lie held at the Tipton links, and with the boys mentioned
above in their hitting' par, Tipton will lie a prominent contender.
fi 1939 L
With the track completed at the city park, Tipton High now has a place for the
1939 track team to workout. Here-to-fore practice has been conducted in alleys, streets
and the drive around the city park. The building of this track will tend to bring this
sport back into the limelight of Tipton High School.
Having most of the boys of last year's track team left over, there are prospects
for a good team this year. Tryouts will be held a few weeks before the actual track
season starts. Mostly Freshmen and Sophomores will be chosen, since it will take a
few years to build up a real team. From all information we have gathered, we do not
know who will be selected, but we are sure they will be boys capable of track merit. We
wish the best of luck to the track team of 1939.
In nine starts of the season Tipton High School's baseball team won seven and lost
two games. They placed second in the Tipton County League, Goldsmith coming out
first. The members of the team are: Bill Small, Warne Jones, Ora Jones, Floyd Cooper, Jim
Tudor, Luther Leininger, Vilas Woods, Wilbur Williams, Robert Albright, Charles Feh-

Boys' Coach Yell Leaders CAGE 8: MOORE
THE 1938-39 BASKETBALL TEAM OF T. H. S.
The team of 1938-39 was one of the best that Tipton High School has even turned
out. We who write this didn't get a chance to see the teams before our time, but the ones
who were there then, agree as to the superiority of the squad. They were a smaller
team than many of those in the past, yet they made up for it with the fast pace of
their plays. Their inexhaustible energy was uncanny, for we have seen them in a game
in which their opponent looked as if they were ready to quitg however, the Blue Devils
always retained their vigor. Ward's boys p'ayed against taller, heavier teams with
great ease. Their flashing attack, added to their defensive prowess was marvelous, con-
sidering their size. All of this and their fighting, cooperative spirit made them a team,
for us the class of '39, to be proud of.
Nevertheless, we would have been unable to nraise thc team as much as we have,
if it hadn't been for the power behind the throne-John W. Ward. His coaching ability
is par excellence, for he built a mediocre team into a strong, dependable force. With
Ward at the helm the job of making a great team is half done at the start.

The First Ten:
Bill Small CSenior-giiard-captainJ It was nothing tor Bill to drive through an op-
ponent's defense, and sink one from under the basket. It was he who lapt the boys on
their toes when the going got tough. He rated second in C. I. C. score ratifgy.
Vfarne Jones tJunior-lorwardJ He could make the basket from any angle :md was
strong on defense. Warne will be a Your-year man next year.
Ora Jones tJunior-forwardj He could slip them in from anywhere. In the middle
of the clash was always "l-lattlin' Buck".

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE 1938-39 BASKETBALL SEASON
Coach John Ward called practice in the early part of October, and a month later on
November 4, the Devils met Delphi in their first game of the season on Delphi's hard-
wood. It was a real battle from start to finish, with Ward's quintet losing by one point
--20-19. When the night of November 11 rolled around Tipton won easily from the
Windfall Dragons with a score of 25-10. Then on November 18 the team made a trip to
Alexandria to be beaten 32-21 in a hard fought battle. The Tigers took the lead in the
second quarter, having tied 6-6 at the end of the first and kept a good six points ahead
of the Tipton five. The Blue Devils lost in a hard fight 37-33, to Frankfort on their own
floor, November 22, Frankfort had a great advantage in that they were a heavier,
taller, and more experienced team. Ward's men led 18-16 at the half, after trailing 9-7
at the end of the first quarter. Both teams gave their "all" with the Frankfort boys lead-
ing 26-25 at the third, and emerging the victors. On November 25 Hartford City was
defeated in the Tipton gym by a score of 22-9. When Coach Ward's Blue Devils met the
Burris Owls on December 2 in the Ball State gym, they were defeated by a score 235-37.
There was never more than a four-point margin between the teamsg yet Tipton trailed
through most of the game.
Mr. Hiatt calls this one a "story book ball game", because of the events that tool-:
place on December 16 in the Tipton gym. It was the first Tipton-Elwood clash of the
season, which the Panthers won 38-37. The gym was plunged into darkness during
the third period, and it was about five minutes before the game could be continued.
The score was 37-36 in favor of Tipton when Carmody of Elwood threw the ball, the gun
fired, the ball dropped through the basket, and the game was over with Elwood the win-
ner by one point!
December 23: Tipton was defeated 32-26 by the Sheridan Black Hawks on their
floor. On January 6 the Blue Devils won their fourth game of the year from Peru with
a score of 38-14 in Tipton's gym. Coach Ward's men bowed to Coach Campbell's Kokomo
Wildcats 42-27 in a fast clash at Kokomo Saturday, January 7. The Devils gained an
921551 victory from Noblesville January 23 when they defeated the Millers 35-15. The
Devils knocked off Carmel on their own floor 28-21. The Tipton team just wore the
Carmelites out in this thriller. Rochester came to the Tipton gym January 20 to leave
defeated 37-18 by the Devils-one of Rochester's worst defeats of the season. It was
ii 1939 L
a dashing tilt from start to finish, with the boys also winning the silver horseshow of
the Central Indiana Conference which they still hold in their possession. In the first
overtime game of the season, with the score tied 30 all, Warne Jones, netted a long
shot from the floor to take Elwood 32-30 in a hard-fought battle. This game was one of
the most thrilling of the season as well as the only overtime.
Pushing ahead in the last minute of play Tipton succeeded in stopping Wabash's
determined rally in the third and fourth periods to defeat Vic Dauer's boys 37-32 in a
fast contest January 28 on the local hard-wood. Keeping right on the heels of the Mar-
ion Giants, Tipton's flashing five checked their opponents 29-22 in a tough tilt, Feb-
ruary 4 on our floor. Most of Marion's shots were taken out from, rather than under the
basket, for Tipton defense clicked brilliantly never letting their adversaries get under
the basket. Tipton led constantly through the game. The Ward-men won this tilt the
way they have won all their tough tilts this season by going at a fast pace throughout
each encounter, and thus utterly wearing their opponent down. Tipton completely ran
away from Huntington, a heavier, taller team, defeating the Huntsmen 36-18, Febru-
ary 10 on our home Hoor. It was an easier scrap than anticipated for Ward's boys. They
simply staclted up a good lead at the start and held it. Shooting their last game of the
season before tournament time, the Blue quintet took their eighth straight victory
knocking Noblesville 43-23, under somewhat the same circumstances as the earlier game
with the Millers. The game was played February 24. on Tipton's floor.
SECTIONAL AT SHERIDAN .
Tipton opened at the sectional by defeating Fishers 44-24 in an easy game. In their
third encounter of the season with the Noblesville Millers, the Blue Devils won their
second game of the sectional 46-31. The Tipton-Carmel fight was altogether different in
the semi-final clash. The Carmelites slowed Tipton down through the first three periods,
the boys seemed frustrated by their tactics of such a slow pace which they were not used
to. However. in the fourth quarter, Carmel was unable to follow out their scheme, because
the Devils rushed so furiously. Pulling out of the rut, the locals swept to a 31-25 vic-
tory. Ward's boys defeated the Sheridan Black Hawks 33-26 in the final game. In the
second qrarter the Devils began clicking, playing into a seven-point lead 118-111 at the
half. Then during the third quarter the Hawks threatened Tipton's lead but the Blue
Devils remained ahead coming out with another victory. e
REGIONAL AT MARION
Tipton took their second victory for Wabash, when they defeated them 40-30 in the
semi-finals. The score was tied at 8-all, first quarter, second, 20-175 and third 28-20--
Tipton. Play was very fast with both teams giving everything they had. Fighting des-
perately to stage a rally in the third and fourth quarters in the final game of the region-
al, Coach Johnny Ward's Blue Devils suffered defeat from Coach Campbell's Wildcats
56-44. The Devils fought their best battle of the year, and went down after they were
unable to stop the Kats fast attack which had netted 28 field goals at the final gun. The
absence of Bill Small was felt greatly, for his inspiring playing was needed. Also Coach
Ward's absence, because of sickness, was a handicap to the team. Nevertheless the Blue
Devils kept their "never say die" spirit, falling gallantly to defeat.

A BUSY DAY
It's up in the morning at breaking day
To pack up my school books, and tear away,
I rush in the assembly at eight twenty-nine
To watch the "Prof's" faces go in a decline.
I pass to my classes, one by one,
I nap in the assembly, foh, such fun!!
Hiatt stalks up the aisle and gives me a shake
I start from my dreams and quickly awake.
The last period is over, the final bell rings,
It takes me no time-my feet must have wings.
I run from the school house-I'm really fast,
I'm home in a rush, for the eight periods have
THE END OF SCHOOL
The last of school has almost come:
The end is very near,
The end of misery for some,
But others shed a tear.
Yould think that those who have to leave,
Would feel a little sad.
"Not us!" the Senior boys proclaim,
"For we are very glad."
The girls are echoes of the boysg
They say, t'We'll never cry."
Though surely they will miss the school
And hate to say good-bye.
But we who have to come again
Will for a while be gay,
And we intend to have some fun
While still our "Dads" will pay.
THE BACK SEAT DRIVER
'I he back seat driver has lots of fun
Telling the front seat driver how the driving's to be
Sho t:lls you to stop when the sign says go:
She tells you to pass four cars in a row,
She tells you wh:n to stop, go fast, and blow.
But what in the heck does a back seat driver know?
When sitting here in school one day,
A snooze I thought I'd take,
Because for some unknown reason,
It was hard to keep awake.
I put my elbow on my book,
And my head upon my hand,
And then my mind began to drift,
To a far-off tropical land.
I was drifting off so easily,
Not conscious of a thing,
When suddenly I was startled
By the bell's outrageous ring.
But I thought I'd just ignore it,
And continue my sweet slumber,
When all at once I realized
The teacher had my number.
With a sticky poultice against my cheek
And a hot pad on my chestg
All wrapped up in a sky-blue shawl-
A color I detest!
With an appetite like a ladybug,
Although I'm not that small,
They brought me soup and tea and milk
A menu that would pall!
Oh, thcn the days were dull and dreary,
'Ihe nights so dark and long:
I worried and fretted, sometimes sulked-
Life was not one sweet song.
But one day a ray of hope appearedg
I found it 'er the dawn.
I rubbed my eyes and cried with joy
"The swelling all has gone."

LOOK OUT FRESHMEN
- In the latter days of September a boy in the first year of high school, who may happen to be walk-
ing peacefully along the street, might be greatly scared out of his wits by the blood-curdling war
cry of "freshman", Upon coming to his senses he would be horrified to see a horde of savage upper-
classmen-a large percent of them being sophomores-descending upon him like eagles after prey.
Despite theirk seemingly bloodthirsty disposition at the time of the initiation they are gentle and
very smart and intelligent fthey thinkl, but as a freshman I suppose I shouldn't say anything. It docs
seem pretty mean of them to confiscate the pants of a helpless freshman, and especially at the first
of the year when he feels out of place anyway. It doesn't seem to matter to them who you are with or
now many times you have already been initiatedg they run you down and do it all over again.
The upperclassmen laugh at the hapless freshman whom they may see counting light sockets, but
I suspect if they would recall to memory, they would remember the days when they counted themg or
perhaps got into the wrong classroom. At the first of the year the upperclassmen make the freshman
feel small, but I suppose they were treated the same way and have to take their spite out on some-
one fwhy us?J So all I can say is, "We'll be sophomores next year-then LOOK OUT, FRESHMENV'

Fads! Fads! Fads!
How quickly they catch and hold.
They serve a purpose for a while
Then they soon become old.
Change, Change, Change,
The craze in time reverts
And before this is finished, though 'tis strange
They've tucked in the tails of their shirts.
I sat beneath a tree in the deep wood.
A murmuring brook
Splashed at my feet.
A book lay at my side,
And my dog sleeps near by in the sun.
Around me the grass was cool and green
And the bees buzzed as they
Gathered pollen from the flowers.
A cool breeze rippled the water
And rustled the leaves.
I drew a breath of satisfaction.
Here was peace and tranquillity.
I closed my eyes and soon drifted into soft slumber,
Suddenly I heard a shrill bell:
I awoke with a start.
With a sigh of resignation
I collected my books and went to class.
My daydream was over.

A JUNIOR BOY'S FLEA
Oh Teachers, of my junior year,
Oh Teachers, hear my plea!
Oh Teachers, I am filled with fear
A senior I'll not be.
Our Tipton girls' so fair to see,
Know how to roll their eyes,
Yet you permit this treachery
And expect us to be wise.
We boys do want to study hard,
To do this, we have fought,
But every time we get our cards,
Our folks get over-wrought.
Oh Teachers, you control my fate!
Oh Teachers, hear my plea!
If you don't all co-operate
A senior I'1l not be.
I can't remember everything,
Yet a few things I can't fo1'get
I canit recall everywhere I've been,
Or all those friends I've met.
But somehow there's still a lingering sp
Of memory I hold dear
Tliat makes me want to live again
This eventful Junior Year.
I like to recall the pi'og1-aims,
And the concerts by the band.
Nor will I forget the day
Spaulding spilt acid on her hand.
I won't forget the dances,
Or the ball games that we won,
The hayrides, plays and skating parties-
They all have been such fun.
I can't forget the nights I crammed,
All that stuff I tried to master.
I learned my dates all in an hour,
Then forgot them even faster.
But now our year is quickly ending
And as the final day draws near
We hope the Sophomores will enjoy
As we have this Junior Year.
-Wilma Jean Palmer.
TI-IE TAIL OF A SHIRT
With disgust, and patience gone
For styles so worn and tried,
A student sat in Home Economics class
Trying hard to decide-
What? What? What?
If in time she could not convert
All the girls in her class to her brilliant plot
Of displaying the tail of her shirt.
See! See! See!
While the teachers, red in the face,
As the girls go boldly by,
Raise their eyebrows out ol' place.
Shame! Shame! Shame!
For along with the usual skirt
A dormant part of apparel came
It was certainly the tail ot' a shirt!
A whisper from the organ drifted in the waiting room. I glanced again at my gown. It fell in
soft, gray folds about me-an appropriate gown for the occasion.
Mylpartner and I walked slowly through the aisle toward the flower-covered altar. As we took
our designated places,AI saw my mother sitting near me.
There were tears in her eyes. I hoped that they were tears of pride: I wanted her to be proud oi'
me even if this were only a Baccalaureate. She had been, after all, my greatest incentive for finishing
While the minister delivered his short sermon I realized that from now on my childish thoughts

And up to bed I start to run,

own I dream exceedingly well. But I find
my trouble is getting to sleep. Some people count sheep, take pills, or even lie on their
tummies, which in some cases may be just the thing. But for the past week I've been ex-
perimenting on Ways and means of getting a little "shut-eye". 1 Gnd that if the sleeper
is. a good day-dreamer, he can use this means of getting to sleep. How? Yfell, when you
pile into bed, start a good day-dreamg you'1l soon do'e off still dreaming of that certain
someone. Now, of course, if you insist on dreaming of Carole Lombard, I can't guarantee
this method. I tried it once and finally had to go down and raid the ice box. But if you in-
sist on getting to sleep quickly, Edna Mae Oliver is a sure-fire remedy. fBelieve me you
won't stay awake thinking about her.J
If you -would really like to know how to control your dreams, you should read my re-
cently published volume "Camouflage Dreaming" which can be found in all the best attics.
Although sleeping is one of my choicest recreations, I find you should take the sour along
with the sweet, or at least I did. You see -I'm a night walker, or should I say I was a night
walker until Grandma left an upstairs window open.
But back to dreams again. Never start a continued d1'eam, for you can't tell from one
dream to the next what's going to happen. Well, goodnightg after all I must finish this ex-
