In case anyone wondered who the quiet little black-haired teacher is this year, wc
would like to introduce Miss Irrgang, our teacher of foreign languages. She is also
the sponsor of Sunshine Society. She obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree from Butler
University in 1951 and her Master of Arts degree from Indiana University. She likes to
read and enjoys movies. We hope she enjoys her stay at THS as much as we enjoy
When anyone hears "Attention!" down near the gym, he knows it is Miss Lehr giving
her physical education students their workout. Or if someone says, "How about
that?" it's probably Miss Lehr. She was exceedingly successful in organizing a yell block
for the basketball games and she also sponsors GAA. Their several dances were pop-
ular and well attended. Miss Lehr attended Normal College of the American Gymnas-
tic Union of Indiana University, Butler, and Indiana University. Her interests are
people, sports, and music.
Another new face in THS is Mrs. Sharp, the new art instructor, Besides teaching in
the high school, she also supervises art instruction in the grade school. She was grad-
uated from Ball State Teachers' College in 1952. Her husband teaches at Windfall
High School. Mrs. Sharp is co-sponsor of Future Teachers of America. Her cocker
spaniels, Michele QMikej and Bruce, were recently the proud parents of five baby
Mrs. Sharp has helped all organizations, from time to time, in planning decorations
and making posters. She and her classes gave old THS a very fine Christmas spirit for
the Holidays. Thanks so much, Mrs. Sharp!
It seems that more people have been flooding into the library this Year. We don't know
whether it is to study or to talk to the new librarian, Mrs. Drury. About the first thing
you hear when you pass through the doorway is "Wow!" - Mrs. Drury's pet word.
She was graduated from Ball State Teachers' College in 1951 with a Bachelor of
Science degree, and is going to Indiana University this spring to work toward her Mas-
ter of Science degree. She also has a son, Charles Edward, age six. She enjoys reading,
music and dancing, She is sponsor of Junior Historical Society and co-sponsor of the
We are all proud of our home economics teacher this year, Mrs. Farrell. Mrs. Far-
rell was graduated from Franklin College in 1950 and is getting her Master of Science
degree at Ball State Teachers' College. She says she likes to sew and collect articles
pertaining to home economics. She has a son, Brett, who is one year old. She is the spon-
sor of Future Homemakers of America, and co-sponsor of the Junior class. She was
former Assistant Home Demonstration Agent of Johnson County and Associate Ed-
itor of "Quote" magazine in Indianapolis.

BLUE DEVILS' WINNING SEASCDN
Coach Jake Weger again turned out a fine football team. The season began with 50
boys out for practice, 17 of which were seniors, Also, 10 of the starting line-up were
seniors. The first game was at Westfield where our veteran team was matched against
their seven returning lettermen. The Blue and White seemed to be too great a match
for the Shamrocks, after downing them 27 to 0, with Tipton having control most of
The next game was our first conference game of the season and it was with our arch-
rivals, Elwood, A capacity crowd was jammed into the Tipton park-field to see city grid-
history made as the Blue Devils scored 13 to 7. Physically, the two teams were evenly
matched but superior determination told the difference, thus putting Elwood on the
short end of the score for the first time in school history.
With two big victories under their belts, the Wegermen invaded Noblesville where
everything they did backfired. The Devils were cooled down and defeated 19 to 0.
Next was the Homecoming festivities climaxed by the slaughter of the Jackson Cen-
tral Eagles to the tune of 33 to 0. The Blue Devils showed championship form by let-
ting the Eagles penetrate no farther than the 35 yard line and by gaining 179 yards
rushing to Jackson Central's 10.
After returning to winning form, Coach Weger's charges ground out a whooping
47 to 6 victory over the Monticello Indians. On the last play of the game, lineman Paul
Book ,grabbed a deflected Monticello pass and galloped 45 yards for pay dirt. It was
rumored that he took a shower in full uniform after the game.
The next team to invade the city park-field were the Peru Tigers. The Wegermen
successfully sought their third conference win in a hard fought battle. The Devils
remained atop the conference standings by fighting off a determined pack of Tigers,
7 to 0.
Tipton's Blue Devils ran their winning streak to four games by pulverizing the Alec
Tigers 39 to 6. Except for the second quarter, the Devils played some of the best ball
of the year as the blocking was savage and the backs were running well.
In the showdown for the C. I. A. C. crown, the Blue Devils journeyed to Rochester.
The weatherman was not cooperating with the team, however, as the field resembled
a small lake after a pouring rain. On the opening kickoff, the Devils returned the ball
to the Zebras' 16 and aided by a penalty on the play, the ball was put in play on the
Rochester one-yard line, first and goal. Luck was not with our team that night as the
first three plays lost five yards. On fourth down, a Rochester defender intercepted a
pass to break up the threat. The remainder of the first half was played on even terms,
and, as it ended, the score was 0 to 0. In the third quarter, the heavier Zebras began
to wear down their lighter opponents, grinding out five yards per carry. Finally, the.
Zebras completed a touchdown pass for the only score of the game. The fourth quarter
found the Devils trying desperately to tie the score but to no avail. As the Zebras'
eight-man defensive line succeeded in turning back each threat, the game ended in
favor of Rochester, 7 to 0.

Stewart, Angell, Law, Mr. Cosgrove, Smitson, Cox.
Starting with our freshman year, the varsity golf team contained two freshmen, Jim
I.aw and Dave Cox: and two seniors, Hal Smitson and Junior Delph. This team won
first in the conference with a total of 331. They went on to win fifth in the sectional
meet with a 362 total. In the sectional, Dave Cox tied for low medalist and Jim Law
received the third-low medalist award.
Then in our sophomore year, all the team was composed of our classmates. They were
Dave Cox, Jim Law, Martin Angell, and Bob Smitson. Again this year they captured the
conference championship with a score of 327. They then moved up to fourth in the
sectional with 339. Dave Cox was second medalist that year in the conference.
Last year, for the third year in succession, they won the conference with a 312 total.
The team was the same as the year before with Cox again winning second medalist
position in the conference. The team moved on to the sectional and tied for second
with a 322. At the state meet in Indianapolis, the golfers placed 7th in a field of 16
from each of the sectionals. Late in the season, Joe Stewart joined the team and
played in the sectional and state meets.
No one knows what this year will bring, but Cox, Stewart, and Angell will be back
to try to keep that conference crown and establish a 4-year record. In the past four
years there never was a number one man, so they always qualified before every meet.

Dear Class of '54
lt would have been very enjoy-

take part in a real graduation,
but l feel that 1 have gained a
lot being here at Shimer College

leave his high school and his
friends that he has grown up
with. sooner or later, and with
me it was a little on the earlier
side. There have been times when
I have wondered if I did the best
thing, and all things considered,
l believe I did.

THE FIRST THANKSGIVING DAY
Today is a day of great pride to all of us colonists.. We have just finished bringing
in the supply of food and fuel for the coming year. Governor Bradford has set aside this
day for prayer and thanksgiving. The settlement is all gathered around the tables
with some of our friendly neighbors, the Indians, and their chief, Squanto. The tables
are laden with all kinds of food, the results of our labor during the spring and summer.
I look over the faces of all gathered here and read in their faces the hardships of last
winter and remember.
I remember the time when all of us Separatists, as we were called, were living in
England. We were being persecuted for not attending the Church of England. A
band of us escaped to Holland were we could have freedom of worship. We enjoyed
living there, but because our children were adopting the Dutch language and cus-
toms, we decided to go to the New World - America.
I remember when our leaders applied for land from the London Company. The land
granted us was in North Virginia by the Deleware River. After much delay, we set
out across the wide ocean on the Mayflower. We started later than had been planned,
and we ran into stormy weather. Many times I didn't think we would make it. When
we finally sighted land, it wasn't Virginia, but much farther north. The storms had
driven us off course. After many vain attempts to turn southward, we decided to stay-
near the big rock we called Plymouth in memory of our homeland.
I remember the first cold winter. Not many cabins could be built, and all of us had
to crowd into the few huts we had. We hadn't enough food to last us through the win-
ter. Many of our people died.
I remember that first spring and summer. VVith the help of some friendly Indians
we planted some corn. All the men worked to raise corn to put into a common store
house. They were all supposed to work, but actually only a few of them did. Whether
or not they worked, they would be given food according to their need. Why work?
I remember the second winter - more of us died. We were hungry and weak. The
Indians were threatening.
I remember that in the spring Governor Bradford and the heads of the families met
to see what could remedy the situation. They decided to try private property. Each
man was given a plot of ground to call his own. He could work for himself, and keep
the fruits of his labor.
I remember that each family worked hard - all worked for they knew they must
or starve, By autumn, plentiful crops were harvested, We had more than we'd dream-
ed possible. There was also a good supply of dried fish and wild foul.
I will have to stop reminiscing now. The colonists are beginning to sing. I want to
join them in hymn of Thanksgiving to God. I fervently hope and pray that our children
will always continue to give thanks to God for this wonderful land, this freedom to
worship, and the right to the dignity of each person.

VVe started our high school days this year with four grand girls
chosen to guide our class.
Mr, Johns, our sponsor, and Miss Iiehr, our co-sponsor, saw us through
Freshman Day and the dreaded initiation.
After it was all over, however, we felt that we really belonged.
lt has not been all work and no play. VVe gave an April Showers
Ilance at the K of ti' llall, April 9. The hall was gaily decorated with
tulips, raindrops. and clouds. The dance was a big success and we
felt that we were growing up almost sophomores, we hoped.
For our freshman basketball team we elected yell leaders Jim
Kinder, Nila Wilburn, and Judy Law.
VVe are very proud of our team, who won five games out ot' eight.
They were, also, runner-up at the Jackson Central tournament.
'lllw Svwllcl semester we elected five members to Student Council to
represent us in that legislative body.
VVe do not want our freshman year to end without a class get-to-
getherg so, we are having a last fling, ln May we plan to have a picnic
in the park.
We have had fun: we have worked hard: and we are hoping to be
called sophomores soon!

THE TRUTH ABOUT JUNIOR HIGH
The teachers, the books, the building so tall
The students, the minds and thoughts,
The tables and chairs and desks so small,
A better life we all have sought.
The teachers pick up after us all through the day
Finding pencils and other debris.
We realize this but are too embarrassed to admit
That they're picking up after you and after me.
The spirit, the joys and sadnesses we've shared
Togethefr with each little sigh.
Yet no other school can be compared
With good old Junior High.

Good Evening, Mr. and Mrs. World
A new magazine has just hit the stands! It's sensational! It's colossal! It's the Tip-
The new publisher and editor is Bill Crouch. He became interested in journalism
when he was a senior in high school and was editor-in-chief of the school yearbook. Bill
is also a philanthropist. He sent charity a check for thirty-one cents -somebody want-
ed a school cap and didn't have the money.
Flash! Tiptson, Indiana!
The Chicago Bears have just won the world championship by defeating the Russian
Bears. Orchids to the men whose perfect teamwork snatched victory from such a
A word about this team. They all hail from the same state and town - David Cox,
Jim Law, Bob Smitson, Jerry Burton, Dale Hensley and Ronnie Langley from Tipton,
Indiana. Take a bow, Tipton! The team plans to go back to visit their home town for
the annual homecoming football game.
Flash! Attention, Sport Fans!
Paul Book, heavy weight boxing champion of the world, has just been scheduled
to meet any and all comers in a charity bout - the proceeds to be used to build and
maintain a house for disabled school teachers.
We are so touched by Paul's thoughtfulness that we are incorporating funds to start
research to find out why teachers disintegrate at such an early age - none claims
to be over 39. We will call the new building "The Teachers' Tepee".
Flash! Entertainment Seekers!
The new popular emcee on the TV program, "Who Has More Fun than People," is
none other than James Gall. His cohorts who help the people make monkeys of them-
selves are Gwen Small, Sandy Rice, and Joey Martinson. We will be back in a flash
fvith a flash, But now a word from one of our sponsors, Ray Noble and Tomatoes,
Mr. Noble has just opened up his 1000th tomato factory in Timbuktu. Jan Newcomer,
who used to be his girl Friday back in the old days is still - his girl Friday. Mary
Redd is his chief food chemist - tomato juice taster. Hurry right down and buy some
of Noble's Tomato Juice. You will find it better than Hadacol of the ol.d days. Listen
to what his Timbuktu plant manager has to say: "I have been in Timbuktu for ten
years and I have been drinking tomato juice all that time - Noble's Tomoto Juice. I
Row bweigh 200 pounds and can lick my weight in wild cats." That, folks, was Murvel
Paul Book, author and chief contributor to the Teachers' Tepee has just appointed
Bernie Tragesser, chief psychiatrist. She will delve into the inner workings of the
professorial mind of each habitue' of the "Tepee." Her assistants in this clinical
analysis will be Roberta Andrews, Lena Jackson, Shelba Achenbach, Gary Purvis and
Mary Lou Pearson.
Flash! Attention, Mr. and Mrs.
We have been swamped with stork cards, Two of our old friends are infantici-
pating: Jeannette Jones Sloan with their sixth and the "Doc" says it will be quints for

Martin Angell, Ben Hogan's understudy in the old days, has just finished the tough-
estbcoiurse in all history - the 14 hole contest in 15 strokes! Must have gotten off to
a a start!
Some say his caddy, Walter Wood, deserves much credit. Others say Martin has in-
vented a new atomic golf ball. Whatever happened, it's fantastic, its stupendous - but
we are not surprised. We insisted back in the old days Martin was a champ!
Timo Out For Our Sponsors!
The.new Batts and Burns girdles, folks, will give you just the figure you've been
whistling at! It Batts away the fat! It Burns away the spare tires! In order to get
that emacxated look, that starved feeling buy a B lk B girdle by Batts and Burns!
Becky Hutto has just returned from Mars! She landed her own "aerocurve" in Tip-
ton, ulndiana. In an exclusive interview she described her exciting trip. She borrowed
her idea of the "aerocurve" from the bugs she used to collect while in high school.
Then the flying saucer she found in Annette Carter's cow pasture helped her finish
her design. She says she's been scaring the Martians half to death. Good enough!
We've been plagued with flying saucers long enough.
Dr. Annette Carter accompanied Rebecca as her personal physician. Annette report-
ed that the Martians are a very inferior people, with the disconcerting ability to
change appearance rapidly. The cartoonists and pilots probably saw what they thought
they saw. And the Navy saw nothing because they thought they saw nothing. It's all
a matter of the mind, Dr. Carter says.
Flash! Attention, Mr. America!
The newest thing in shopping! Tipton, a suburb of Hobbs, located along the new toll
road, is becoming a new shopping center of note.
Larry Ricketts has opened a new giant Super Hab - short for Super Haberdashery!
The latest styles and fashions for men! Men have crowded the Super Hab for days.
Larry is frantically calling Paris for more purple and yellow tiesg zebra striped jack-
etsg cerise, and leopard trousers! And those, oh, too cute, pin-up shorts! Frank Arnett,
John Leininger and Phil Whelchel are the favorite models. Tea is served each evening.
Lenora Lacy, Shirley Ley and Martha Koors pour tea for the gentlemen guests, while
Charles Merrill and Keith Percival entertain with fife and drum chamber music.
There is a style show every evening. The busy executive may stop on his way home
faom the office to watch manly figures parade new models. It's cool! It's keen! It's
On the same midway is a rambling art gallery run by Jim Henderson, the fabulous
art collector. His chief curator is Eldon Howery who is exhibiting his own pictures in
oils. Bob Cain, his assistant, is the world's latest expert on the habits of humming birds.
In the gardens around the art museum are the specimens of all the wild animals of
Africa, donated by "Bring 'em Back Alive" Pearson.
Wash day is now an enjoyable day! Be gay! Be carefree! Your clothes will stay clean
There is now a new pipeline to the laundramat. Put clothes into a hamper, pour in a
bit of Cardwell powder and presto - the clothes are clean. Sprinkle them with Chap-
pell dust and no more wrinkles. They stay clean and wrinkle-free for weeks - no soap,
no water. no ironing! No clothes! Barbara Cardwell and Linda Chappell have become
famous for their powder and dust - regular "Gold Dust" twins.
Patricia Stunkard has opened the dreamiest of tearooms overlooking the beautiful
Buck Creek. It scintillates! Any day or evening you will find Fanchon Peters there
strumming or her ukulele singing that beautifully haunting melody, "Oh, Dear, What
Can the Matter Be." The big moment is at night when Emalie Hinds, Janet Clark and
Elaine Woodruff join Fanchon to entertain the guests.
With costumes studded with diamonds, emeralds, sapphires and nailheads, they are
visions - lovely, lovely! But that melody! You'lI never stop humming it once you hear
those lovelies sing it.
The maitre d'hotel in white tie and tails is Jim Richardson. And what is that? A
boutonniere? They say he wears it for his high school sweetheart! Don't miss the Buck
Creek Tearoom! "Oh, Dear, What Can the Matter Be!"
Flash! Attention, You Bookwormz! We've Gone To Press!
Don't fail to read the new Barnes report! He has done extensive research! He's had
a team of assistants! He's interviewed everyone! The exposure is complete, exciting
and stupendous! Jerry has had the support of Indiana University and Miss Coble of
the Tipton High School English department on this gigantic undertaking. But he in-
sists that the main credit for his enlightening, shocking work goes to Wilburn,
Hoover, and D. Cardwell. They told all! This world-shocking conclusion drawn by the
Barnes report made possible this violent revelation. This is it! Listen carefully,
"Eveyone Loved His First Teddy Bear!"
We have had an exclusive interview with our President, our first lady President-
Rebecca McKinney. We have just learned that she hails from Tipton, Indiana. The
White House Secretary, Lowell Hupp, who interviewed the press with President Mc-
Kinney, says that Becky and the one-time great Winston Churchill have one thing in
common - they both like to paint.
There had been the New Deal and the Fair Deal back in the old days, but President
McKinney has introduced the Glamorous Deal. The President has brought about the
final emancipation of the fair sex. No longer do they need wait until a gentlemen pro-
poses marriage. It is now quite proper for the lady to "pop the question."
The President appointed Sandy Burden and Patty Lawson to write a new book on
etiquette, "Glamor for All." Emily Post has become out-dated. Jo Edna Kendall has
just joined the authors and plans to open a new kind of finishing school to teach men
how to climb the social ladder. Since President McKinney has inaugurated her "Glam-
orous Deal," many new agencies have been organized -- The H.T.W.M.A.M. headed
by Beverly Anderson has been quite a sensation. The idea has been a prominent one
among the ladies since Eve, but only now has it been made public. Miss Anderson has
made quite a success of her agency. "How to Win and Marry a Man."
Flash, Sports Fam!
The great coach, Gene Nunn, has just signed a lifetime contract with the Tipton-

Hopper -is one of the old gang from THS. Her last interview was a sensation! By her
side on the TV screen you saw the soulful Cole, our favorite swoon and croon man.
There were also the current funny men Pyke and Fike, whose famous antics enliven
any evening for TVers. Pyke and Fike with their brilliant wit are the greatest com-

David Slyder has come in for his share of fame in the "Glamorous Deal." He has
long been acknowledged as the great party giver. He has replaced Pearl Mesta and
Elsa Maxwell of the old days. He has invented a new dance called the Klobber-
Bop - a cross between the Kangaroo waltz and the Bunny hop. Schools to teach the
new dance have sprung up all over the world. The idea behind the movement seems
to be that as long as people spend the last ounce of energy on the Klobber Bop they
won't have any left to klobber each other. Richard Dickover and Robert Achenbach
have flown to Europe to start the craze there.
Tom Tragesser, Pat Saxton and Jim Robinson go to Africa to teach it to the shy
duskies of that continent. Jim Campbell is preparing to answer the summon's from
guefzn gfllizabeth to make Princess Ann the most famous Klobber Bobber of merry old

My father has shed many a tear,
Over his worthless "grad" engineer.
The mechanical knowledge
I acquired in college,
Is that a car has wheels and a dear.
The days are passing swiftly byg
Commencement now draws near.
We seniors value each school day
And hold each friend quite dear.
Loretta Jo Martinson
Through crowded halls of school she races
She's almost late. to class.
She pushes all 3 she hits and runs.
There's no one she can't pass!
Loretta Jo Martinson
There once was a student named Carter
Who wished she could be enough smarter
To write a. good rhyme
Without using her time
To find a fit line for a starter.
In reading this I'm sure you'll find
In writing poems I'm far behind.
I have a little sister named Jean
Who at times I would sure like to beang
But the trouble you know
Is my Dad likes her so
And he might not sanction my scheme.
Don't come to visit our chemistry class
If you really value your lifeg
The conglomerations we make in our hurry
Leave a lot of messes and strife.
My father's hair which once was red
Is gray now, since the pigment's dead.
But he still has hair
So why should I care
It could have fallen out instead.
DAVID AND GOLIATH
The armies of the Philistines
Did meet the Israelites.
The king of Israel was Saul.
They fought for their own rights.
The Philistines had Goliath,
Who was a mighty man,
A champ whose height was cubits six.
The Israelites all ran.
The little shepherd lad, David,
A servant boy of Saul,
Went out with sling shot and a rock,
To meet Goliath tall.
With great ability he aimed
Right at the giant's head.
Away the rock flew through the air,
And then the champ fell dead.
George S. Pyke
As I walk from home to school each day
I look across the street,
For there's one thing that catches my eye
A girl I'd like to meet.
THE TIPTON-ELWOOD FOOTBALL GAME
The September night was cool and clear
As the rivals stormed the fieldg
The usual confidence was here,
But one team had to yield.
The battle moved from end to endg
The struggle never ceased.
The mighty lines were hard to bend,
But then - - -
The lights picked out our blue and white
Among the blue and red.
The blue and white had won tonight,
Our rivals now lay "dead."
RUSH ! RUSH ! RUSH!
The bell has rung - the rush begins
To get from room to room.
Down crowded, noisy corridors
The students really zoom.
They dash into the study hall,
Their books they quickly find,
They hurry after all their friends
Lest they be left behind.
When once again they've entered class
And found their way to chairs,
They rapidly prepare to work
The study time does go so slow
They think it'll never pass,
But once again the bell will ring
And off they'll run to class.
FROM THE WORM TO THE ROBIN
If you have ever watched a beautiful, red-breasted robin looking proud and smart,
as he pulled a struggling little worm from the ground, you will know how I felt about
the seniors on the day I was initiated as a green freshman into Tipton High School.
All those strong, proud seniors were to me what, I am sure, the robin is to the cower-
ing little grub.
The upperclassmen knew their way around T. H. S. without asking any questions.
They even talked about the teachers, using their first names.
The boys seemed so much older and more poised than those poor little classmates
of mine. The senior girls were something out of this world, with their grown-up clothes,
their lipstick, and the way they could talk to the boys without blushing a bit.
After the horrible initiation was over, I breathed a sigh of relief and wondered if
I would ever reach the attainments of the seniors.
During my freshmen year, I struggled with algebra and Spanish, hoping to learn
enough of the language that when I visited Mexico City, I'd feel so proud to be able
to surprise a native with a few words.
In biology I managed the leaf collecting with ease, but if it hadn't been for the help of
the whole neighborhood, I doubt if I would ever have collected enough horrible,
crawly bugs to pass the course.
I was no different from other freshmen girls who worship senior boys, and all
through that first yearl had quite a crush on a "hero" who never knew I existed -
thank goodness. You see the seniors were my ideals. They left nothing to be desired.
Well here I am, a senior at last, but I assure you that the great change I anticipated
hasn't taken place. I do not feel much older, and certainly not more polished. It is
true I dress a little older and use lipstick. Ihave crammed a few more things into my
head, but deep down I feel very humble because now I realize there is so much
more to learn. I have just begun.
FROM FRESHMAN TO SENIOR
Four short years ago I began a new adventure, and now it is coming to a close. Just
a few more months and I will be leaving the people and places I know so well. Like
everyone else, I will rather hate to see the long-awaited day arrive, but in my heart
there will also be that eagerness of the new adventure that awaits me.
It seems like only yesterday that I came upstairs bearing that title of "freshman",
and then wanted to go back down again when I reached the top. All the upperclassmen
were standing around looking so sure of themselves, and I only knew the way to the
study hall. Those first few days I was conscious of trying to do everything exactly
right, because I had heard the expression "dumb freshmen", and I didn't want to be
considered in that group. Then I began to realize that I was being accepted as another
student, and things were much easier. However, just a word or a smile from an up-
perclassmfan gave me that feeling of belonging.
As a senior, I don't feel too differently, except, perhaps, a little older. 1 feel that
I know a little more, but not enough to run the school as I once thought seniors did.
I've also found out that seniors don't look down on underclassmen, but are just proud
to be called seniors and may, sometimes, show it in their actions a little too much.
Although we may seem to forget how we felt as freshmen, we really do know what
they are going through.
Now as I begin my last year in high school, I know it will bring joys and pleasures
I have anticipated for the last three years.
I was sitting on the sofa, watching Arthur G., when all at once our T. V. screen was as
black as it could be.
The speaker started howling, and the tubes began to flash, and all at once the screen
grew white, and I heard a mighty crash.
Then on my screen I saw, and much to my surprise, I sighted His Honor, Mayor
Hiatt, a floating through the skies. It seems that "Little Willie", wherever he may be,
made a slight error on a formula, and came up with T. N. T.
Next came the news announcer, with films of a mighty flood, and there was Mr.
Miller, swimming through the mud. But he was in no danger, although with fear he
shook, he had the driest thing of all, a senior econ book.
When I turned to another channel, to get a better view, I discovered "Shorty" Beer-
bower, telling why onions grew. He said the onion's odor was so very strong and rare,
it had to sprout up through the ground to get a breath of air.
The scene then switched to Heaven and I saw the Pearly Gate, and who else but Mr.
Cline had come in a little late. The Gate was being guarded by former students of
his class, and when George tried to enter they saidg "You'll have to get a pass."
We all know Columbus sailed the ocean blue, but according to our T. V. set, Dale
Morehead did this too. With a telescope in one hand and a sword upon his hip, he was
sailing down old Cicero in a badly leaking ship.
Our set then came to order, or so I thought at last, for back came Arthur G. and
the members of his cast. But as I sat there watching I got the greatest of my shocks,
for there was Arthur Cosgrove modeling his curly "Toni" locks.
Another great presentation, sponsored by "Juicy Blue Grape Gin," was John Jake
Weger's fine program, "This Is Only For Men." He was having quite a contest, for
beauty it did seem, and the entries standing in a row were as lovely as a dream. The
judges got together, and when they added up the score, they appointed Nancy
Harting, Typing Queen of "54."
Of course without a mystery, no show would be complete, and the title of this thril-
ler was, "The Cop Out On The Beat." Mr. Johns, a sly young fellow, had been thrown
into the clink, but I wondered what the reason, forI knew 'he didn't drink. My questions
were all answered, and I wasn't left to reason, he was taken in on a "903," selling
Parakeets out of season.
T. V., a widespread medium, that's viewed throughout the state, must give to all
who view their screen, a show which suits their tastes.
The mid-west, a rich farm region, which grows a lot of corn, televises Charlie Ed-
ward's show, early every morn. His show is very popular from Maine to old L. A., and
it's really backed in numbers by the boys of F. F. A.
We hear of Einstein and his theories, which set the world to thinking, but when I
tell you of another show, you'd swear that I'd been drinking. The program was for learn-
ing, with Mrs. Forney at the head, and Einstein was the student and his face was full
of dread. Mrs, Forney's tough assignment was to multiply two by three, but Albert
stared back blankly and replied, "That's much too deep for me."
The four remaining teachers, of good old Tipton High, had organized a quartet,
whose music made you sigh. With Pearson singing base, and Simpson taking lead, then
songs were started slowly, but quickly picked up speed.
Miss Coble sang the alto, while soprano was Foster's key, and when they started
singing, I turned off our crazy T. V .....

A Miracle ln The Night
The tree seemed to glow with a warmth that I had never noticed before. The tinsel
gleamed brightly, the tiny silver bells reflected the multicolored lights, and the snow
on the branches looked almost real. Then I recalled the ancestry of the tree and how
it came to be so straight and tall. Let me tell it to you.
A long time ago in the city of Bethehem stood a pine tree in a little valley near a
stable, It was not a tree of beauty because it was bent and twisted with age. On this
particular night the stars shown brightly, and the air was cold and clear. Shortly be-
fore nightfall the tree had noticed that two strangers had stopped at an Inn to find
a place to stay for the night, but there was no room. Because it was the season for
taxesii all the Inns in the city had been filled. The two strangers had to take the stable
or s e ter.
As it grew dark, the pine tree saw a star that was pouring forth a beacon of light
that illuminated the countryside, casting a radiance about the stable.
Three men riding camels followed the star to the stable, dismounted and entered.
By this time the tree was becoming curious about what was going on in the stable,
wgien there was a burst of song, a multitude of voices singing praises from Heaven
As if a miracle had taken place, the tree, bent from age, straightened up and looked
through the window. There was the Babe wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in
a manger. Indeed, it was a night of miracles, and the pine tree has stood straight ever
A Turkey's Point Of View
There was a great commotion on December 12, 1620, when a group of people called
Pilgrims landed at Plymouth. Being a turkey, I knew I could find out who these people
in tall top-hats and bonnets were.
I discovered there had been 102 people aboard the Mayflower and the trip had
taken 67 days. This had been a rough trip because of the weather and the outbreak
of diseases. Some people had wanted to turn back, but here they were, laughing and cry-
ing at the same time, Many of them kissed the ground. I lost quite a few feathers that
day because I got in the way.
To these Pilgrims I was probably a strange sight. I was called a turkey, but they
had never seen me before. I had come from a pheasant family, and I had a trim and
A little later I learned about these peoples' lives in England. They were called Sep-
aratists and had been driven out of England because of their religious beliefs. This
seemed very unjust to me because as a turkey I believed as I wanted to.
That first winter was a hard time for the Pilgrims. Nearly half of them died. But
spring brought renewed hope.
The corn crop was finally gathered and a feast was called. The friendly Indians and
we turkeys were invited. The festivities included food, sermons, prayers, and songs
of praise for the wonderful land and the good fortune they had,
The main dish for the feast was turkey. I was very fearful. To this day I can hardly
tell how I escaped. I guess the reason was that I ran faster than my friends and flew
to the highest tree tops. I didn't come down until after the feast was over.
Yes, these funny-looking people had quite a bit of trouble, but they developed a
love for personal and political freedom which has been handed down from December
12, 1620 to November 26, 1953.

It was nice to catch up on the news and see who was walking with who- pardon
us - with whom.
Initiation Day! The freshmen wore strange garments today - didn't look much
like clothes. Couldn't tell whether they were boys or girls. Well? This is the last time
the seniors of 1954 will get a shoeshine by some poor luckless freshie. Initiation was
fun - for the upperclassmen. The freshmen class can really "take it." We asked the new
teachers to do something for us -they sang a song. "Sang" isn't quite the word,
though. We don't think it would charm the wild beast - or would it? It charmed us.
We cheered long and loud - until we remembered it was almost time to go home ....
Ah, Victory! Our Blue Devils edged out the Elwood Panthers, We celebrated with a
bonfliredand a dance. The taste of victory, the feel of power! What a good time every-
one a !
It could have been a volcano, but we were sure it wasn't. It could have been the atom
bomb, but not likely. Maybe someone broke throiigh the sound barrier. It sounded like
the screeches and squalls of a bunch of girls. It must have been a mouse!
No, it was a snake in the biology class - gone berserk, Which one? Oh, the one they
had in a bottle.
The table tennis champions came to entertain us. After a bit of preliminary clowning,
they gave us a nice fast game of table tennis. So fast, it's a wonder we weren't all
cross-eyed. Later the champs played a game with Jim Henderson, Sharon Morris,
David Kinder and Paul Tragesser. We thought they were pretty good, but after meet-
ing the champions, we think the kids had better brush up a bit. They were good
sports about it though. And that is what we like most. It makes all of us feel good
when one of us shows good sportsmanship. You get a warm glow - and you realize
how you like your friends, and how proud you are of them.
Pep Rally before the homecoming game with Jackson Central! It was a big night -
bofifire, yells, the bunny hop, the speeches, the songs, the dancing. It was all wonder-
We wish to thank the Student Council who sponsored the gorgeous spree. We
think, too, that a number of other people are to be thanked - Mayor Hiatt, the
County Commissioners, the City Council, the City Police, the State Troopers, and our
Parents -- for allowing us to have the bonfire on the courthouse lawn. We wish to
thank anyone and everyone who aided and abetted us in having an evening of fun.
We don't know of another town where the kids could have a bonfire right up town.
It's come and gone! Homecoming Day! We have been writing cards to invite grads
for a visit, We have been making placards. We have been decorating floats. Oh, we've
been doing the hundred and one things one does when company's coming.
The halls were gaily decked. We had on our best pinafores and knickers. Our guests
were welcomed by a delegation from the PTA. We were all keeping our fingers crossed
for nice balmy weather for just one more day,
In the afternoon, the entire school assembled in the gym for the program. The
band "out-did" themselves.
With Gary Gordon presiding, the program moved along smoothly. Mr. Robert Ross
Wickersham gave the homecoming address. Mr. Wickersham, president of his class in
1923, Chief Examiner of the State Board of Accounts, gave us highlights of the growth
of Tipton High School. He reminded us of the great advantages we have in our her-
itage. He admonished us to keep the spirit of freedom and Americanism growing.
Mrs. Maude Purvis, of the class of 1905, received the Key to the City from His Honor,
Mayor Hiatt, honoring her for being the oldest graduate present.
Oh, the great secret was ready to be announced. All day we wondered who would
be the Queen. We know each contestant must have been in a dither -- we were half-
way beside ourselves with suspense. How could they be so calm? The court, Roberta
Andrews, Joyce Johns, Linda Law, Fanchon Peters, and Sherry Crouch, was seated
gi a semi-circle. And then it was announced - Linda Law was our Homecoming
YOUR MAJESTY, QUEEN LINDA!
Linda was a bit disconcerted. Naturally since she was only a lowly sophomore,
she didn't expect to be chosen - it was a bit overwhelming. Must have gotten cinders in
our eyes - could hardly see Linda. Great day! Those weren't tears, were they? Sorta
think Linda had a cinder in her eye, too!
THE PARADE! THE PARADE! Here it comes! Oh, Diary, we were positively goose
pimply! The queen and her court were given a vantage point from which to view the
best parade yet. The band did themselves proud, the football squad looked so confident,
and the floats were splendiferous. The sophomores won the prize with a "crowing"
rooster - a good prophet. It was a fine float.
It always amazes us to see how the town turns out to see us show off. And more
amazing is the way everybody turns to and works on any project we have. That's "our
That game! Victory again! lt was a big game, an important game. And we won! We
were almost dazed from the victory. We wanted to whoop, to scream, to beat each oth-
er on the back, to hug the players. We loved everyone - even the referees!
Just one little suggestion - we wonder if the Student Council could station someone
at West and Jefferson, and East and Jefferson, to route the through traffic around
the parade area. One big truck and several cars were held up on their way because
the State road was suddenly blocked off. They took it good naturedly, though.
Someone wants to know why the sentence, "It is a duty of a man. . ." is on the
board in the typing room so much. Since Miss Foster wrote it there, one would wonder.
It's a rhythmic sentence for the typewriting classes. Nothing more!
Rings were delivered to the juniors. They were so proud. Some of those rings found
new homes that very same day - freshman and sophomore girls!
Jack Crowell ran in the Cross Country. Came in eighth! Good go, Jack! Next time
it will be first!
Vacation! Hurray! Teachers go to Indianapolis to the State Teachers' Convention.
Orientation of organizations was on the agenda today. The president of each organ-
ization gave a brief summary of the purpose and aims of his organization, telling the
school how new members could be admitted.
Pep Rally for the Rochester football game. Say, those yell leaders are a bit of all
right. Someone must be coaching them. They have rhythm without the floor show.
They have enthusiasm with a lot of tricky yells. They know when and how to yell
the right yells.
Boo! Hoo! We. lost to Rochester. It ties us in the conference, though. Nice going,
Found out who was coaching the yell team - Miss Lehr. We thought somebody was.
She has started a yell block, too. We think that is super. They will look nice at the
basketball games. Positively cool! Keen! Sharp! Thanks, Miss Lehr.
Rev. Beams spoke to the school today. Rev. Beams was the representative from the
Ministerial Association. We liked that talk - the quiet way he could bring us close
The football squads were honored at a banquet sponsored by the PTA. They heard,
as guest speaker, Charles Trippi of the Chicago Bears.
"Crazy as a Loon", given by the Thespians, was a riotous comedy. We think Sharon
Hobbs "stole the show."
Armistice Day - the day we set aside to honor those who have given their lives
that we may enjoy our freedom and our American way of life. We attended the program
given by the American Legion on the courthouse lawn,
Pep session for the Monticello basketball game. It was a good game, too - we won.
Here we are in that season of Hoosier madness! For the scores, please turn to the
Pep session for the Jackson Central game - won that game, too. We are off to a
good start. Now, if we can just hold out.
We had a scientific program about liquid air. We didn't quite understand all we
saw. That looked like water in that beaker, but they say it was air. It looked as if it
were boiling, but how can a liquid boil at 120 degrees below zero? Science is so
The all-class party, sponsored by the Student Council, was fun. Gee! We thought
that cute boy would never notice us - he did! Ummmm! Those cute freshmen girls!
They fall for our "line" so much faster than the senior girls!
Rev. Arthur spoke to the school. These short talks on the intangibles of life are very
good. We get so busy and "wrapped up" in our own activities, lessons, and problems,
that live forget that Some One gave us all the good things in life and that we owe Him
t an s.
Thanksgiving Holiday! 'Nuf sed!
FFA went to International Livestock Show, accompanied by Mr. Edwards and Mr.
Pearson. Took a side trip through the Curtiss Candy Company farms which proved to
getthe main show to the boys. They thought Chicago lived up to its name - the Windy
Won from Rochester - hope our luck holds, Perhaps it isn't all luck. Perhaps we are
all training. Perhaps ....
Senior football players received their jackets - tied in the conference, you know.
Oh, excuse us! We said that once.
Won from Plymouth - good going, boys. Keep it up!
Band members and Mr. Simpson went to Chicago to the Midwest National Band
Clinic. Such borrowing of hats and buying of gloves! You'll learn, girls!
Lost to Elwood! Nice game though. Better luck next time.
Ditto to Sheridan. Come on, you guys!
Ditto to Frankfort. This is getting monotonous.
Christmas program in the Methodist Church. The speech class did some excellent
choral reading, the music department did a fine job. If we hadn't had the Christmas
spirit before, we had it now. This pause for a serious, spiritual hour of worship is
an impressive tradition.
New Year's basketball tourney - Elwood is the winnah! We want to congratulate
them, and we won't dwell too much on our own disappointment.
The second semester begins. New seating arrangement in the study hall! It's more
fun to sit with those freshmen and sophomore girls - ces petites enfants! Now, we can
really practice our "line,"
Oh, we didn't do it! Yes, we'll clean it up. No, we didn't have any cokes in here.
Yes, we have a key, but so does every one else. We are speaking about Room 10 -
we'd like to call it the Senior Room. It is the rumpus room - everyone makes a rump-
us about using it! But we take all the blame for all that goes wrong - oh, well, just as
well get used to it. Someone used to say fwas it Mr, Stemen or Mr. Smith?J that if we
don't stop complaining and discipline ourselves now, we probably never will. And
when we don't learn to discipline ourselves at all, we get into trouble. Could be some-
thing in that - just could be!
Rev. Morris spoke to the students today. Life, he said, is like an inverted pyramid,
balanced on integrity, honesty, a good name, and faith in God.
Scholarship exams! Those seniors wanting a scholarship to college, took examina-
tions today We've been cramming for days. Oh, that math! Mrs. Forney probably won-
dered about our sudden interest in mathematics. We were always at her elbow, asking
her to explain this, to do that problem.
Band and Chorus went to Ball State Teachers' College to the district music contest.
Those winning first were Gale Conley. Pat McKinney, and George Burkhardt. Nice
going, kids! We are proud of you. Nice bit of work on the part of the maestro, also.
Thanks, Mr. Simpson. Now on to the state contest!
Company today! The Future Teachers of Burris High School spent the afternoon
with us. Groups of our FTA escorted them over the building to classes, and took
them to Lincoln school for a social hour at 3:00 in the afternoon, They attended our
pep session in preparation for the battle against the Burris Owls - alas! we lost! Be
sure to come back again, Burris FTA, we enjoyed knowing you.
The Student Council brought us a program of rope and whip tricks. We enjoyed that
very much. We liked the rope tricks better - the whips made too much noise and
looked too dangerous.
FFA were hosts to the district FFA. The meeting was held in the Farm Bureau hall.
Two hundred seventy boys, representing twenty chapters, were present.
Ball State College Choir
Junior High School Operetta, "Sally in our Alley", - sounds very interesting. Has
catchy tunes, too!
Honor Society scholarship tests.
Senior class play - "Gramercy Ghost" - a rollicking comedy. Each year we think
Mr. Johns will not be able to have as good a play as the current one - but he always
does. He'l1 do it again!
Track season begins - our third major sport, Then comes golf! We have a champion-
ship golf team.
Senior High Operetta - "An Evening with Rodgers and Hammerstein". We know
the music and speech departments will make this a "top notch" production, especially
with Miss Lehr in charge of the dances. We are looking forward to it.
Final exams! Award day! This will be the first day the seniors will wear their caps
and gowns. Mighty important people! Mighty important! MIGHTY!
J unior-Senior Prom - that will be a nice party. We will be able to enjoy it this year -
we will be the honored guests.
Baccalaureate and Commencement! Here it is at last. The end of our first years of
school. Now - excitement, enchantment, adventure!
