' I . Q" G! dfjb J' 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 with credit, both to themselves and their school. "The foundation of every state is the education of its youth." 67023 6' fo iff fi 1939 L X cgi? TIPTONIAN L1 D. IC. LICIST Superintendent C. li.

"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.

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.

"Number, please." "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." 4193931 DAVID SALLEE Glee Club 43 Annual Staff 4.

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. l'wenty Four 49193921 HI-Y CLUB The Hi-Y Club ofhcers are: Joseph Wiggins, President, Raymond Williams, Vice President, John Bunch, Secretary, Bob Cage, Treasurer, and Mr. Trabue, Sponsor.

The entire band will participate in a contest at Bloomington at a later date. LATIN CONTEST 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.

During the year the club sponsored a skating party, gave a Sweater Swing and had a formal banquet. Awards were given to all girls who had made 500 or more points during the year. With the enthusiasm that has been shown this year, the G. A. A. is SLl1'9 to be very successful in the next year. Miss Hall: Marjorie, what are the ankles for?

"Oh, my gosh," said the wife, Uthe cat has had him downstairs twice already today!" Bob McIntosh says gentlemen prefer blondes but he thinks the fact that blondes know what gentlemen prefer has a lot to do with it. Thirty-One EQ TIPTQNIAN Qi INTRAMVRAI. At the start ol' the lizlskcthall season the Tipton High intramural teams were chosen. The teams were comprised ot' all lmoys in Tipton lligh School interested in playing' basket- ball. The teams selected were: Jitterlrugs, Comets, Pollywogs, Flying: Iiagfles. Drawhacks, Kentucky Moonshiners, Zipps. Freshmen and llnmdingers. Standings were kept ol' the teams all season. The four teams having' the highest standing: played a tournament for the championship at the end of the season. Freshmen vs. lxentucky Moonshinersg Zipps vs. Humdmgrers. The Freshmen and the llumdingfers, winning' in hard fought games, hattled it out in the tmal game. After a good iight, the Ifreshmen triumphed 24-22, taking the intram- ural crown. Boys on the Freshmen team who saw action in the hnal 'fame were: Folzmd, Graham, 1 1 5 y - Iurtel, l'retz, Jackson. Hoover. lflorey, and Tudor, lloys on the Llpp team who were on the floor tor the final were: Foy, Posey. Goodnight, Cole, and Dennis. Tipton High School's ggoll' team will lie back on the fairways, with such prospects as Jack Ramsay, Phil llutline, Paul Graham, Owen Suits, and Charles Maines tak- ing' part. Tryouts will he held at the opening' ot' the golf season. The Central Indiana 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. Thirty-Two fi 1939 L TRACK 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. BASEBALL 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- linger, Jim Ertel, Seth Wheatley, Paul Graham, and Bill Goodnight. The class of '39 is p1'oud of their fine play on the diamond. The Tipton Blue Devils in their opening baseball game, September 9, defeated Kemp- ton on their own grounds, hitting 10 runs to their opponents 3. In the second game, the Blue Devils triumphed over the Sha1'psville Bulldogs 9-4. Prairie Aces beat the Blue Devils 4-2 on the Prairie diamonds, September 16.

WARD Girls' Coach MISS HALL 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. Thirty Five 5 TIPTGNIAN Q5 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.

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 Thirty-Eight 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.

Then a boy wishing to enter college-prepared himsell' for an etsablished profession, legal, medical, perhaps jour- nalismg and teaching was practically the only Held open to the girl. New discoveries in science and tech- nology have opened an almost limitless field to the boy and girl ol' today. New industries have sprung in to existence within the last l'orty yearse-fradio, automobiles, moving pictures, air-conditoning and aeronautics,--each one bringing new fields ol' en- deavor lor the modern youth. Great strides have heen made in the so-called vocational subjects. lCcononiic changes have resulted in enlarged social and civil service opportunities. Schools have endeavored to l.eep pace with the ever changing demand and so the American boy and girl ol' today finishes his high school training not only with a knowledge ol' the classics, lmut also practical knowledge ot' commercial sulriects, mechanical and industrial arts, agriculture and home economics, thus lretter fitted by training, to find his place in lite-than the youth ol' forty years ago.

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 passed. -Robert Lett. 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. -Estelena Crooks. THE BACK SEAT DRIVER 'I he back seat driver has lots of fun Telling the front seat driver how the driving's to be done. 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? 'CAUGI-IT NAPPING 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. -Carl Miller. MUMPS 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." Nina Trabuc. -Vivian Louise Hinkle. 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' -Leroy Clark. Forty-Five ii TIPTONIAN Li 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. -Marjorie Moeller. PRETENDING 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. -Norma Jeanne Bristow. 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. Bob McIntosh. MEMORIES 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, ark 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 places 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 Olll' 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! BACCALAUREATE 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 high school. While the minister delivered his short sermon I realized that from now on my childish thoughts lnust be put away. This was a farewell to High School Days!

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- periment. She: Could you learn to love me? Souse: Thish match doesn't light. H95 I learned 10 Speak Latin. Ditto: Thash funny. It lit alright before.
