Valenian— 1 9 3 7 ' Published by The Senior Class of Valparaiso « High School Valparaiso, Indiana 1937 ' 8Z 05652 w Allen County Public Librarif 900 Webster Street i PC Box 2270 Fort Wayne, IN 46801-2270 rOti_ ' C A BEAUTY SPOT OF V. H. S. E D I T O R I A L WE HAVE attempted in this book to capture that spirit of progress and service which charac- terizes today ' s world of journalism, and through it reflect the life of our school. If through our editorial methods, illustrations, and artistic decorations, we have in some measure imparted to you the crisp, modern, and efficient atmosphere which must hang over all journalistic endeavors, we have met with success. To THE spirit of industry, service, and efficiency which is the common heritage of this school with the great " fourth estate " of hfe itself, we, the Senior Class of 1937, dedicate this Valenian. As these qualities and a sound policy create and perpetuate a newspaper, so do they stand re- sponsible for Valparaiso High School ' s record of achievement. It is our belief that these qualities will remain long after this book is forgotten.

Her death was keenly felt by the faculty and student body alike. As sponsor of the Senior Girl Reserves and as a friend to all, she was an important part of the school system and her passing made a vacancy hard to fill.

GRACE HELMER, Clerk SUPERINTENDENT This picture shows Mr. Juhan, superintendent, in conference with his secretary, Mrs. Grace Helmer. Mr. Juhan has made an enviable record since his coming to Valparaiso in the fall of 1930, and through his activities of the last seven years has made himself indispensable. Interested, democratic, kind- ly, he is a truly modern educator standing high in the esteem of the faculty and student body. Eight JAMES McKAY President IRA C. TILTON Secretary C. W. WHARTON Treasurer BOARD OF EDUCATION SCHOOL BOARD Representing various walks of life, the Valparaiso School Board consists of a busi- ness man, a lawyer, and a minister. Mr. McKay, Mr. Tilton, and the Rev- erend Mr. Wharton have served unselfishly upon this executive board for a number of years. Liberal and constructive, their admin- istration has seen the school grow in size and improve in facilities year after year. PRINCIPAL Principal Homer M. Jessee is here seen in a characteristic pose, that of guiding and counseling one of the many students he comes in contact with daily. Dynamic, energetic, efficient, his inten- sity is tempered by a keen sense of humor. His twenty-five years of service have made him the living personification of our high school, a true Hoosier School Master. MR. HOMER M. JESSEE, Principal Homer M.

A juve- nile as far as faculty is concerned. Ele Pictures Capture Students and Teachers in Action During the course of the year a snoop- ing camera caught members of the faculty deep in the teaching of their classes. Those pictured here are described in a left to right sequence. Here is one of Miss Olie Welty ' s Latin classes deep in a study of Gaul ' s three parts. Constituting a cultural course, Latin may be had for two, three, or four years. The classes are made interesting by the actual living of the subject. Scrapbooks, projects, and field trips add immeasurably to the understand- ing of the students. — Except for the indus- trious clatter of keys, this picture depicts realistically the scene enacted each day in Miss Hudson ' s many typewriting classes. A practical course, typewriting and its comple- ment, shorthand, are immensely popular. Miss Hudson ' s greatest worry is her lack of typewriters. — Custodian of guinea pigs, gar- ter snakes, frogs, and turtles, Mr. Kendall also finds time to teach his biology and health education classes. Biology, a class of which is here shown in action, has grown rapidly in popularity in the last year, necessitating the forming of three different groups of stu- dents. — Dominating the lower regions of the school with his basso ' profundo voice is Mr. Burton Conkling, vocalist, dramatist, and orator, seen here in a characteristic pose. The dramatics classes, one of which is seen below, are responsible for the plays given during the assembly periods and lend their talent to the production of the Christmas Pageant. — Miss SlEB, admirer and modern propagandist of William Shakespeare and his works, makes her classes models of in- terest and attention. It is questionable which is the greatest attraction, the work of the masters or Miss Sieb ' s sparkling wit. The camera seems to have caught a class in a solemn moment. Twelv Wide Variety of Subjects Appeal to Students Major Domo of the legions of the thimbled finger, Miss Edith Weems radiates good spirits. A strict study hall disciplinarian, she believes in the law of room 122 (Work ends only when the bell rings). Laden with all necessary equipment, the class shown here is industriously learning how to thread a needle. — Sponsor of the high school ' s two publications, Mrs. Emma Foor, better known as the Mighty Atom, also finds time to teach a number of English classes (in the same day) . Owner of the only two-desked room in high school, she keeps hustling and expects the same from her students. The cut shows a strangely tranquil moment in the compilation of the Valpost. — Mr. R. E. SCHENCK is known as the man with a dozen secretaries and a five minute plan for every- thing. He probably uses the mimeograph more than any other member of the faculty. Bookkeeper, lawyer, and historian, in the course of the day, he manages to write a little on the side. — Lined with books, decorated with oil paintings of the sand dunes, and fill- ed with students, the library daily presents a picture of applied industry. Containing everything from the current issue of Good Housekeeping to Chaucer ' s choice tid-bits, it tells the student everything but which way the teacher is looking. Sitting big as life on the " throne " in the middle of the room is Miss Weems. (I wonder if that boy is chew- ing gum?). — Miss McGillicuddy is the mis- tress of the school ' s tangents and triangles. Handy with a piece of string and chalk, she probably drew the circle on the board before the picture was taken. Collector of yard sticks and colored chalk, she is still looking for a student who can trisect an angle, but hasn ' t found one as yet. Thirteen study and Laboratory Periods Appeal to Students Deeply immersed in the mysteries of the test tube, as is shown in the cut, is one of Mr. Pauley ' s chemistry classes. " C. 0. " , controller of the most of the upp9r hall, bounds from one room to another, instruct- ing students in physics, chemistiy, advanced algebra, and trigonometry. Famed as head recommender for St andard Oil Company, he is also an outspoken enemy of " mud-pie " chemists. — Kindly and respected, Miss Bar- tholomew oversees the learning of the com- munity ' s future cooks. Under her tutoring, smells arise from the vitamin laboratories and waft out into the halls to tantalize the poor students who chose ancient history in- stead of domestic arts. In the picture, prep- arations are being made for the usual Wed- nesday lunch. Before long — " Soup ' s On " . Oh dear ! — Possessed of a voice which can outdo the loudest lathe, or student in the shop, Mr. Joseph B. Brown is the " lord of all he sur- veys. " Owner of the fattest brief case in high school, he perfects ye students in the drawing of straight lines and the making of bread boards without splinters. Editor ' s note: The photographer practically had to threaten Mr. Brown with physical violence to get him in the picture. (Shy, you know). — Genial impresario of the high school, Mrs. Mary Myers, presents operettas, glee club recitals, runs the gamut from Rachmaninoff to Vincent Lopez ' s " knock-knocks " , and oc- casionally leads in " America the Beautiful " on state occasions. She is seen here trying to get " la " out of a " do, do " bird. Fourte G R A D U A T E S SENIORS The culminating Of this annuating. Finds us contemplating On our graduating.

Junior Class Outstanding in Accomplishments Emerging from the sophomore class and entering in earnest upon the curricular and extra-curricular activities of the school, the Junior class was organized under the spon- sorship of Miss Vera L. Sieb. Campbell Holt was chosen president, Bob Beach vice-presi- dent, and Charlotte Cavell secretary-treas- urer. This class annually controls the largest social function of the year, the Junior-Senior Prom, a formal dance, entirely supervised by the school. It has made several note-worthy contribu- tions to the field of athletics, music, scholar- ship, and to the extra-curricular activities of the school. It has furnished a representative for every organization in the school. Donna Shurr and Mark Sink were outstanding for their musical talent, Hildegarde Koch, Camp- bell Holt, and Phyllis Julian scholastically. In the field of athletics Kenneth Rhoda, Elroy St. Clair, Campbell Holt, and Robert Maudlin were outstanding.

Unorganized Sophomores Active in School Life Minus the appellation of freshmen, the sophomores exhibited from the outset a de- cided interest in the life of the school, both in a scholastic and social way. They constitute one of the largest classes in V. H. S., but are unorganized. They have contributed mem- bers to every phase of school life, controlling important functions, in the various clubs of the school. Many of them made the honor- roll, and scholarship is valued highly by this class. As a decided contrast to many sophomore classes, this one was always ready and willing to aid the freshmen in getting started and to acquaint them with the rules of the school, and the many problems which always con- front new students. Some of the outstanding students in this class are Robert Weiss and Marjorie Warn- er, scholastically, and in athletics, Harold Henson, John Stoner, Robert Rhoda, and Jack Niksch.

Nine members of the Valenian staff work a period or more a day during the year with the jour- nalism adviser, Mrs. Emma R. Poor, to ci ' eate and edit the year book of Valparaiso High School. Each fall the task of selecting the theme of the book is encountered by the staff. This solved, the general literary style, book arrangement, art work, and method of photographic presentation must be worked out. Dozens of artistic illustrations, reams of written copy, and scores of photographs are sifted to find the material which will comprise the book. This being completed, the staff must also type all this copy. Covers offered by competing companies are carefully compared for durability, beauty, and perti- nence to the book ' s general theme. Frequent consultations with the printer and careful proofreading serve to present the material in as pleasing a manner and as correct a literary style as is possible. The book, completed by units, is now assembled and presented to the student body. The staff is elected by the senior class. The editor-in-chief and the business manager are elected during the junior year and the remaining members the following year. This serves to provide a contin- uity between the efforts of each year ' s class as the editor-in-chief and business manager serve a se- mester ' s apprenticeship under the preceeding staff. This year a general journalistic theme was used. The staff attempted to portray in the pages of the year book not only school life but also the world of professional and scholastic journalism. The book was written with columns and head- lines. Each article was written in the style of a newspaper story. An attempt was made to have the literary style quick, crisp, and informal. The art work was unique. Figures cut fi ' om headlines and news articles printed in our school paper, The Valpost, and pertinent to the subjects, in- troduced the various sections of the book. Small scenes of newspaper work decorated the pages, and the cover was chosen to further carry out the theme. Thirty-eighf VALPOST STAFF Row 1 Bottom: Junior Sanders. Ruth Dye. Allen Cotterman.

Journalism Classes Provide Valpost Staffs A bi-weekly publication representing the efforts of the advanced journalism class, the Valpost, re- cords the events and reflects ths attitude of the high school. Journalism, a year ' s course, has two classes, be- ginning and advanced. The lower class studies the mechanics of journalism and gains experience in writing the many types of stories which must ap- pear in a newspaper, composing headlines and story leads, paper makeup, and proofreading. The advanced class is intrusted with the publica- tion of the Valpost. News sources must be tapped, columns written, editorials composed and features completed. This raw material is then sorted and apportioned throughout the paper in keeping with sound rules of journalism. Headlines are written and the final proofreading follows before the paper is finally ready for publication. The paper is financed by advertisements which are solicited from the local merchants by the fall staff. This staff starts collections which are finished by the spring staff. The paper alternates between a four and six page issue depending on attendant circumstances. Active management and general supervision is provided by the journalism instructor, Mrs. Emma R. Foor. News assignments are proportioned among the staff by the faculty adviser. These offerings are augmented by contributions from the first journalism class and the student body. Below may be seen last year ' s awards.

Commercial and Home Economics Clubs Have Large Enrollment Under the direction of Miss Bartholomew and Miss Weems girls interested in home arts receive their training. The Home Economics Club is a mem- ber of both the state and national society of Home Economics Organizations. As one of their projects this year, the gii ' ls took orders for and baked fruit cakes during the Christmas season. They also staged the Home Economics Bazaar at which things made by the girls were sold to those in attendance. The major social functions of the club are a Christ- mas party, a Valentine party, and a faculty tea. The Commercial Club attracts that large group of students in V. H. S. who are especially interested in commercial work. Miss Dessa Mae Hudson is the sponsor of this club, one of the largest in the school. At various times during the year guest speakers ad- dress the club on topics related to this type of work. One of the guest speakers obtained was Mr. Robert Lanhani, court reporter in a local court, who spoke on the requirements and the qualifications necessary for this work. The two social functions of the year are the Christmas party and the spring banquet. Forty Row Row- Row Row Row Row Row Row Row Row Row ' Row I J. B.

German Club and Tumblers Active Valparaiso High School has but one foreign language club, the German Club. The aim of this organization is to help the German students put their German knowledge to practical use. Mr. John Koch is the sponsor of this organization which has one of the most enthusiastic memberships to be found in any of the clubs. During the course of the year the lives of German authors, musicians, and statesmen are studied, and several plays are written and produced by the members. A unique feature of this organization is that each of the members an- swers the roll call in Geiman when his or her name is called. The outstanding social function of the year is a Chi ' istmas party held in Mr. Koch ' s room at the high school during the Christmas season. In order that those boys not proficient enough in athletics to make the varsity teams might partici- pate in some form of athletics, Mr. J. B. Brown or- ganized the Tumbling Club in 1931. This club has enjoyed signal success from the very beginning not only in providing recreation for the boys but also in providing entertainment for various of the town ' s clubs and civic organizations. This year the mem- bers of the Tumbling Club have performed at the Elk ' s Club, participated in a meet at LaPorte and performed between halves of several university and high school basketball games to the great enjoyment of the spectators. Last spring the club held a meet which displayed the talents of several of the Calu- met region ' s high school teams. Forty-one Hi-Y Prominent as Service Club in Community Primarily a service organization, the Hi-Y has from its inception endeavored to be of service to its school and community. The local Hi-Y is affiliated with both the state and national organizations of which the parent organization is the Young Men ' s Christian Association. Mr. Ralph E. Schenck is the sponsor of this club and as such advises the board and members on questions of policy and matters re- garding the general welfare of the club. The board itself is composed of the officers plus one or two of the leading members of the club. The board meets weekly to discuss and solve problems confronting it. This year the Hi-Y presented to the school for use at basketball games a board upon which the players ' names, positions, and numbers were listed and also furnished two boys to operate it at each home basketball game. Among the other activities sponsored by the club are: the second-hand book store, the courtesy cam- paign, the checkroom at basketball games, sale of schedule pencils, ushering of students at gymnasium convocations, and the distribution of Christmas baskets. Among the other activities it conducts are the annual Hi-Y Father and Son Alumni banquet, attendance at Hi-Y conferences, including the na- tional Hi-Y conference attended by President Bob .James, and the Camp Tecumseh conference attended by President Bob James, Vice-president John Mor- land, and Secretary Bernard Cinkoske. The mem- bership of the club is limited to thirty-five. The new members are selected by vote of the club. The members selected must go through a special period of training before being formally inducted. They must also be approved by the board and the administra- tion. This club elects its officers yearly, the ser- geant-at-arms being appointed by the president. HI-Y CLUB Row 1 Bottom: Robert James, John Morland.

Senior, Junior Girl Reserves Merit High Rank The service organization for the girls of Valpa- raiso High School is the Girl Reserve Club. This club has no restriction on memberships, any girl de- siring to belong may join if she will uphold the stan- dards and tenets of her club. There ai-e three divi- sions or units of this club. First, the Senior Girl Re- serves, composed of all the seniors belonging to the club, they select their own officers, have their own sponsor and conduct their own meetings separate from those of the other two Girl Reserve Clubs. The second club is the Junior Girl Reserves who likewise have their own officers, sponsor and club meetings, and the same is true of the third group, the freshman-sophomore group. These clubs do co-op- erate with each other, however, and hold joint meet- ings once or twice a year. The girls employ a point system to govern the allotment of sweaters. To get a sweater one must have been a member of the Girl Reserves for at least two years and must have earned at least 100 points. The points are secured by attending church, serving on committees, extra curricular activities, going to visit sick people, special work on programs and va- rious other ways. The girls of both the senior and junior clubs conduct their own meetings as a rule with their own members providing the program. At different times during the year outside speakers are obtained to ad- dress the girls on subjects which are of particular interest to a group of girls such as the Girl Re- serves. During the first semester IMrs. Avery B. Weaver, a graduate of Valparaiso High School and also of Valparaiso University, addressed this group for the second time in as many years. Miss Hazel Butler, who passed away last Feb- ruary was sponsor of the senior group. Miss Shauer sponsors the juniors and Miss McGillicuddy and Miss McCoy look after the freshman-sophomore group. Forty-three Younger Girl Reserves Enthusiastic About Club ' s Ideals The largest grouping of the Girl Reserve or- ganization is that of the freshman-sophomore club. Drawing their membership from the two classes that their name indicates these girls carry forward their share of the Girl Reserve work. At their meetings, which are held every other Monday, the problems of girls are discussed and business is taken up. Usually the gii ' ls conduct these discussions themselves, however, each year a guest speaker is secured to address them. This year Mrs. Roy B. Julian addressed the girls on the theme of " Man- ners. " Some of the activities which these girls carry forward as part of their ciub work are the prepara- tion of the Christmas baskets for the needy, usher- ing at the demonstration night school, and at the Christmas Pageant, and as one major contribution the sale of Christmas seals in downtown business establishments and in the school. Miss McGillicuddy and Miss McCoy ai-e the sponsors of the group. This club is an integral part of the Girl Re- serve organization and considering the size of the combined membership of the three clubs the co-ordi- nation between them is remarkable.

Forty-four Footlight Masqueradeis Provide Entertainment All members of the dramatics classes are mem- bers of the Footlight Masqueraders, a club sponsored by Burton L. Conkling. At the meetings of this club the various topics relative to dramatics and dramatizing are discussed, and as a project each stu- dent builds a miniature stage or makes up some other member of the class for some character part. Make-up is given considerable attention, although the facilities are very limited for this type of work. Each year this club stages several plays before the high school as a part of its program. The work involved in staging these plays is long, tedious, and exacting. Parts must be learned, equipment and make-up secured, and practices must be held. The practices often begin as early as seven A. M. and last until eight thirty A. M. Each of the actors takes his part and tries to interpret the character he is to depict, so that he will be able to give a better performance than he otherwise could give. Some of the plays given this year before the regular Wednesday morning convocations and spe- cial groups were T}ie Knave of Hearts, The Bishop ' s Candlesticks, Peace I Give Unto You, Queen Anne ' s Lace, Is Romance Dead? He Troups to Conquer, Elmer, Dear Lady be Brave, and The Crown of St. Felice. The Footlight Masqueraders also enacted Peace I Give Unto You before the Mathesis Club. Below you may see a scene from The Knave of Hearts, one of the best plays to be given this year. FOOTLIGHT MASQUERADERS Row 1 Bottom: Berneice Brown.

Sciemus, Stamp Club Interested in Special Subjects The Valparaiso High School Sciemus Club is composed of students who have a particular interest in science and its advances. Under the sponsorship of Mr. C. O. Pauley, visits are made to some of the city ' s industrial plants. During the year competent speakers in the fields of science are secured to ad- dress the Science Club on topics of interest because of their connection with the work of science. The Science Club sent fourteen of its members to the Junior Academy of Science held at Danville Central Normal College during the month of November, and of the fouiteen, one, David Williams, was elected vice-president of that organization for the ensuing year, and William Savery was defeated for the treas- urer by one vote. Increasing its membership yearly since its incep- tion, the Valparaiso High School Stamp Club under the direction of F. G. Reid and the club officers has succeeded in creating a wider interest in this hobby among V. H. S. students. This is one of the young- est of all the high school clubs. It was organized by Principal H. M. Jessee in 1933 upon the request of the Senior Stamp Club of Valparaiso. The club meetings consist in the main of discussions of the various methods of collecting stamps and displaying the stamp collections of the members of the club. Several of the members of the Senior Stamp Club have displayed their collections to the Junior Stamp Club in order to stimulate an even greater interest in this work. Forty-si Novice Debaters Have Successful Season The newest organization of V. H. S. is the De- bating Club, which was organized at the beginning of the first semester. This club had as its aim and purpose to encourage the theory, practice, and tech- nique of debating. It has a small but enthusiastic membership under the direction of William R. Ken- dall, who is also the coach of the debating team. The regular meetings of the club are on every other Tuesday morning, at which meetings general discussions of debating and articles from the Read- ers ' Digest are reviewed. The members of tlie de- bating teams which were selected from the club be- cause of their special ability and interest in debat- ing, represented the school in carrying forward its schedule in the Indiana Debating League, of which the local club is a member. The teams are composed of two persons for the affirmative team and two for the negative, each team having two alternates. In the major number of debates John Morland was the first affirmative speaker and Bob -James was the second affirmative speaker, Charles Kern the alternate. For the nega- tive team the work was evenly divided between .Jean Morland and Bernard Cinkoske first negative speak- ers, and Doris Lawrence and Delayne Kumnick, sec- ond negative speakers. These teams debated all the major teams of Northern Indiana including Brook, Chesterton, and Crown Point while the negative team scored an outstanding victory in a triangular debate against Kno.x. Next year, with the initial year of debating past and with Doris Lawrence, neg- ative, and Charles Kern, affirmative, speakers around which a team will be built, Mr. Kendall hopes to even better the fine record established by this year ' s teams. A more thorough schedule will be ar- ranged and a more satisfactory method of attack on finding related material to the question at hand will be developed. The social event of the season for the Debating Club is a party held in the spring. DEBATING CLUB Row 1 Bottom: Beinald Cinkoske. Jean Morland, James Horney. David Williams. Mr. Kendall— sponsor.

Boys ' , Girls ' Glee Clubs Oldest Organizations Valparaiso High School has two glee clubs, one for boys and one for girls. The Girls ' Glee Club is directed by Mrs. Mary Myers and Harold L. Rogers is director of the Boys ' Glee Club. Of the two the girls ' club has the larger membership although both clubs have an adequately large membership to furn- ish the necessary different types of voices. For the first time in several years no operetta was presented due to the great amount of prepara- tion needed for it, and the cost of producing it. The glee clubs each year perform before the student body at the regular convocations and this year presented a joint concert at the conclusion of the demonstra- tion night school held during the first semester. Credit is given for glee club work. Tryouts were given shortly after school opened this year to de- termine the ability of those students wishing to be- long to the glee clubs although no student really in- terested in this line of work who can carry a tune is denied entrance.

(Not iiictureil) Orchestra and Band Gain Recognition, Awards Playing under the leadership of a new director, Harold L. Rogers, the V. H. S. Band represented the high school by playing at both football and basketball games and at Wednesday morning con- vocations. Some of the highlights in the activity of the band for the past year were the winning of a prize for their excellence during the Porter County Centennial and playing at one out of town football game held at Lowell between the Lowell High School team and the Vikings. Both the band and the or- chestra meet twice each week; the band meets every Tuesday night in a regular practice session. One fifth of a credit is given for band or orchestra work, the grades being given at the regular grading per- iods by the director. Mr. Rogers is also the director of the orchestra and has built the orchestra up to its greatest mem- bership in years. The growth of the orchestra has seen a corresponding increase in the quality of the music played. Folk songs, modern pieces, and class- ical numbers were intermingled to make the orches- tra ' s recitals both enjoyable and memorable. A num- ber of orchestra members are also in the band. This enables Mr. Rogers to give these key members even more instruction than would be normally possible. In addition students have extra practice periods.

Freshman Party, Double Quartette Popular Activities Each yeai ' the Valparaiso High School Hi-Y club together with the Gill Reserves stages a Fresh- man party. This party is for all students who are entering Valparaiso High School for the first time. Its real purpose is to serve as an introduction to the social life of V. H. S. students and to acquaint the new students with their teachers, the sponsors of the two service organizations, the Hi-Y, and the Girl Reserves, and to acquaint them also with the membership of these clubs; so that when they have an opportunity to join one of these organizations, they will not be entirely unfamiliar with the clubs and their members. This year, as in former years, the Hi-Y ar- ranged the games as its part of the party, while the Girl Reserves furnished a play and the refresh- ments after the party. For this party the entire group was divided into ten groups with equal num- bers, each group choosing the name of a Big Ten school for its name. Each of the ten groups entered one or more persons in the games, some of which were carrying beans on a knife, two-legged races, peg games, and clothes pin games; and the school whose contestant won, received three points for first place, the school that placed second, two points, and the school that placed third, one point. The games that attracted the widest interest were the apple eating contest, and the contest in which the student tried to drink a bottle of coca-cola through a nipple. The final entertainment of the evening was the Hi-Y mock court of which Bob James was judge, John Morland, attorney for the defense, and Bob Kitchen, state ' s attorney. Some of the persons tried weie Russel Lane, Charles Kern, and Jean Stinchfield, all of whom were found guilty. DOUBLE QUARTETTE Under the direction of Mrs. Mary Stevens Myers the double quartette has made real progress in the past few years. Yearly it entertains many of the social and professional organizations in Valparaiso and adjoining communities, and in nearly every in- stance is accorded another invitation to return. This group has as members, Ruth Larson, Willard Jus- tice, Roy Harlow, James Horney, Bob Hurley, Ger- trude Davidson, Harriet Rex, and Anne Wharton; Mark Sink is the pianist. Regular practices are held during which time new songs are learned and sung, and voice training which is necessary to such an or- ganization ' s membership is thereby acquii ' ed. Some of the groups entertained by the double quartette were the South Bend Teachers ' Association, Porter County All-Talent Day, The Music Festival, The Valparaiso Women ' s Club, and The Cooks Corner ' s Parent-Teachers ' Association. Fifty Seasons of the Year The Annunciation The Nativity The Adoration of the Magi The Prophecy of Isaiah CHRISTMAS PAGEANT Around The Year Fifty-one May Festival Beautiful Spring Pageant Each year the physical education department presents a spectacular festival. It includes the chil- dren of the fourth and fifth and sixth grades, junior and senior high schools. Elaborate settings and cos- tumes enhance the beauty of this occasion. Below are some of the scenes and settings and groups that made up this evening ' s entertainment. Miss Mary Jo Hollars, aided by the grade and high school teachers, produced this festival. Dances that showed grace and skill made up a greater part of the program. Miss Hollars tried to show the prog- ress of the work throughout the grades and high school. This festival has become a tradition in the Valparaiso schools.

H. S. faculty for the past seven years, Ralph ( Powell has established an enviable record as a coach and a teacher. His accomplishments become more apparent when one realizes the fact that he coaches football, basketball, track, and, for awhile, baseball, in ad- dition to teaching history and physical education classes. His achievements need be told no longer — they speak for themselves. MARY .JO HOLLARS A comparative juvenile in the longevity of her teaching career at Val- paraiso, Miss Mary .Jo Hollars has accomplished more than a juvenile ' s al- lotment of work in the past two years. She has directed two May Festivals and Christmas Pageants. An ac- complished athlete, she is eciually proficient in archery, soccer, baseball, bas- ketball, volleyball, and track. Mary Jo Hollars Each Season Has Its Own Sports From the first day of school to the last, a multitude of athletic activities capture the enthusiasm, ability, and energy of V. H. S. students. Football in the fall never fails to evoke a large number of aspirants. With the advent of snowstorms and frigid winds, athletes take refuge in the gymnasium to indulge in the king of Indiana sports — basketball. In March, April, and May, track receives part of the limelight. Revived last year, track bids fair to become one of the leading sports. Also omnipresent is baseball. This sport has always proved popular and sees a large turn- out each spring. Golf is a sport of no mean dimensions. Starting in the fall and lasting until summer, the noonday league attracts many non-team high school boys. The tumb- ling club has always enjoyed great popularity and always has a good team.

Football Varsity Has Winning Season The Valparaiso High School ' s football team ended the season considerably better than the year previous. Out of the possible eight wins, two were won, four lost, and two tied. Under the new leadership of John Wig- gins, who hailed from Morgan High School, and assistant coach, Ralph Powell, the team took on new life and showed a vigor usually heard of but never seen before. The first tilt of the season was with Rensselaer, which ended in a tie, 6-6. Although disheartening, due to the fumbles and bad judgment, on the whole the game proved highly encouraging. The second trial of the Viking ' s gridiron power was displayed in a hard-fought game on Plymouth ' s homecoming day. After being on the defensive end the first half, the Vik- ing ' s rallied, only to fall short, not of touch- downs but of goal-kicking. Plymouth 14 — Valparaiso 12. With passes snapping, punts soaring, legs churning, scores rising, the Vikings roll- ed a victory over Tolleston at Brown Field 20-14. On a rain-soaked field, the Viking elev- en dueled a heavily-armed LaPorte team to a tie, 7-7. Jankowski and Broome, fullback keymen for each team, both scored a touch- down in the first half ; and the attempted ex- tra points were good. Hammond Tech ' s tough Tigers again clawed their way successfully through the Vikings for a 22-6 victory. Harshbarger ac- Fifty-seven Line Activity Tackling Heart-stopping Seconds Watch Him Go! Awe-struck Crowd Fast Action, Spirit, Characterizes Season counted for the only Valpo tally when he crashed through right guard for a touch- down. Hammond Tech scoi ' es came from Hogedus and Ritthaler to cinch the game. Despite the Uremovich juggernauts, the Viking eleven took a hard-fought game from Hobart 13-6. Chester took an aerial from Jankowski to provide the first Valpo score. After a 40 yard penalty, Greenspan revers- ed left end and reached the Valpo yard tape. Later Jankowski scored behind good blocking for the winning touchdown. A leviathan of power, the Hammond Clark football eleven, invaded Boucher Field and came out the decided victor 27-0. Capi- talizing on breaks and Viking defensive lap- ses, Mike Kampo, fullback scored in each period netting 26 points. Heartbreaking news for Viking fans, Lowell 7 — Vikings 6. The Valpo score oc- curred in the second quarter when Bob Rhoda crashed over after two attempts. Out- standing in the game was the Viking ' s all- senior line composed of Wells, Swelstad, J. Chester, Cole, Masterson, Rhoda, and R. Chester, which proved a great help in the de- fensive play.

The game was marked by off ' ensive play. Vikings were in scoring position twice. A trial for victory by Tolleston at Valparaiso fell short by one point 13-12. Valpo ' s first score occurred when Reinke skirted left end and raced down across the yard tape. Tolleston scored a touchdown in the third quarter on a long pass. Valpo worked the ball down into the opposition ' s teri ' itoiy ; then Cliff ' ord eased around right end, and a spectacular six-foot dive carried him across. In the fourth quar- ter Tolleston flipped a lateral behind their line of scrimmage, then threw a pass, the re- ceiver racing sixty yards for the final score. A windy, cold day opened the rivalry be- tween Michigan City and Valparaiso. Maud- lin scored on crashing through the center of Michigan City ' s line. Point conversion was executed on a pass from Suesse to Maudlin in the end zone. From every class, freshmen, sopho- mores, juniors, and seniors erstwhile foot- ball players trotted to the playing field di- rectly behind the powerhouse to limber up knees, elbows, and other joints that needed the oil of practice. Working with the funda- mentals, running, jumping, and other exer- cises Coach Powell developed a machine comprised of human beings that looked like a professional squad, clicking smoothly, due to the many hours on the practice field. Practice stai " ted directly after school dismis- sal and usually ended at dark or about six- thirty. Both the first and second teams use the same facilities and practice at the same time, one going up the field one way while the other is coming down. During the course of practice, occasion- ally a " second stringer " will get his chance to play with the first team. If he does well, he might receive either a berth or another chance ; if not, he is sent back to receive more training and experience. The team was not unusually large but was made up of a group averaging perhaps 1.50 pounds. The usual lineup was as fol- lows: Charles Cliff ' ord and Dale Gott, ends; Robert Hurley and Lloyd Pinkerton, tackles; Robert Stoner and Ted Chekouras, guards; with Steve Kriston at center. The backfield was composed of Charles Suesse, quarter- back; Robert Maudlin, fullback; Guy Well- man and Morris Reinke, halfbacks. Material for future football teams should be forthcoming, for instead of relax- ing on the bench and waiting to be called upon, these boys continually " got in the coach ' s hair " and asked to be put into the game.

" Valpo came, saw, and conquered the Hobart quin- tet by a 35-14 triumph. Kane was high-point man netting seven points. Bringing out defensive play to a maximum, the Vikings defeated Crown Point 25-13. Witner and Kane led the attack with 5 points each. Starting the Western Division campaign with an overtime, Valpo defeated Hammond 27- 23. At the start of the overtime, Carroll Sheets knocked down a pass, dribbled half the length of the floor and scored. Frenzied attempts by Ham- mond to score in the waning seconds failed. A basketball game with a nerve-racking fin- ish never showed its face ' till Valpo squeezed out Warsaw 27-26. Jankowski hit from near mid- floor in the fourth quarter. With one point to go in almost as many seconds, Chester dropped one through almost after the gun crashed. Emerson 29 — Valpo 23 ; such was the score staring the undefeated Valpo quintet in the face after its encounter with the Norsemen. At the be- ginning of the second quarter, Henson, replacing Jankowski, dribbled in, scored; St. Clair cut in, scored ; and Sheets intercepted a pass, scored. Al- though now 23-23, the rally fell short and tallies by Collins and Tombers sewed up the game for Emerson. A Viking victory of one point, 23-22, over Roosevelt, East Chicago, was revenge for the Emerson defeat. Jankowski garnering eight points, led the Vikings to victory, closely followed by Witner and Kane 7 and 5, respectively. Hen- son ' s free throw and long, kept the Riders from scoring a victory. Glover ' s two baskets in three shots, Witner ' s three in eleven, Henson ' s two in nine: all these did not win the game; for Valpo lost to Washington, East Chicago, 27-23. A non-conference game, tied with Elkhart, gave the Vikings both practice and experience. Kane ' s height halted the Blazer ' s rally in the third quarter; from then on bucket-sniping waxed hot with Jankowski, Sheets, and Glover tallying seem- ingly at will. Close games were the vogue, Valpo pulled a 32-29 victory out of the fire in the last Sixty Fighting Vikings Play Steady Game minute over Lew Wallace. One point behind, in the last minute Jankowski arched a long one to bring Valpo into a one-point lead. Henson drib- bled in and scored making the victory complete. Mann defeated Valpo 33-29. Superior field sniping seemed to be the key. A dazzling victory 30-27 over Froebel at Gary marked a new high for the Viking five. In the last quarter Witner scored on Henson ' s rebound. Glover then took a pass from Kane and scored to give Valpo victory. The Vikings shellacked Whiting 33-25. Wit- ner and Glover were the " hot " men, both with nine points. Valpo started the game with a spec- tacular one-hand shot by Kane followed by ex- cellent team work and shooting ability. Competition between Valpo and LaPorte re- sumed heat when LaPorte defeated the Vikings 23-22. Henson, after tying the score, fouled Lub- er, who didn ' t miss. Jack Chester ' s second heroic role came into play when the Vikings nosed out Hammond 27- 26. Chester sank a hooked shot to give the Vik- ings the game. Unlimited goal sniping proved a great fac- tor in determining the outcome of the Lew Wallace-Valpo game which was taken by Valpo 49-32. On both teams scoring was regular and ac- curate. The Viking ' s hopes for a conference cham- pionship were smothered under a withering blast of basket-shooting by Emerson. At the outset Valpo looked good, but unusually fine follow-ups, tips, and net-ruffling gave Eme rson a decisive victory. Ten points in five minutes gave LaPorte a 29 to 21 victoiy. Bad passing on fast breaks gave the LaPorte team the ball, consequently baskets. A surprising score, Valpo 32 — Roosevelt 17. Witner and Jankowski netted six points each to lead the scoring field. Horace Mann, the division leader, took a close game from the Viking quint 33-28. Accu- rate sharpshooting proved Harmon ' s uncanny as- set, while Kane ' s height proved his. Completely trouncing an unsuspecting Mich- igan City team, Valpo scored a victory 45-20 to end its hardwood season with 12 wins in 20 starts. Kane guards Henson ' s flip.

Junior Vikings Promise Good Future Varsity The main attraction before each varsity game, the Viking Reserves, made up of two classes, freshmen and sophomores, indulge in two schedules, conference and non-confer- ence. Playing hard, clean basketball, like true sportsmen, is a noticeable feature of the reserve games. Not unlike the varsity, the reserves are coached by Mr. Ralph Powell. Players in their respective positions are as follows : Charles Skinner and Roland Sheets, center; Robert Rhoda, Guy Wellman, John Stoner, Robert Maudlin, guards; Lawrence Dahl and Robert Slingerland, forwards. Able substitutes, Elroy St. Clair, Raymond Phil- lips, and Campbell Holt completed the re- serve squad. With eleven games won out of twenty, it certainly looks as if the varsity squad of next year will have some very capable play- ers. Three of these games were only one point either to the winning or losing end. The reserves practice at the same time as the varsity and in many cases scrimmage with them. This gives them a chance in ex- periencing faster breaks, taller players, and harder shots to block. The highest scorers and possibly the best all-round playei-s were Charles Skinner, a tall, lanky, six foot-one inch center, and Robert Rhoda, a fast, hard-driving, accurate- shooting guard. These two co-operating in both offensive and defensive play stood out distinctly as the Viking bulwarks, a challenge for opposing teams to overcome. Individual scoring is as follows : Charles Skinner 163 Robert Rhoda 82 Robert Slingerland.. 71 John Stoner 43 Lawrence Dahl 39 Raymond Phillips .— 2 SCHEDULE 9 Hobart Here 23 Crown Point There 21 Hammond There 25 Warsaw Here 24 Emerson Here 18 Roosevelt There 11 Washington Here 25 Elkhart There 13 Lew Wallace Here 27 Horace Mann There 20 Froebel There 25 Whiting Here 21 LaPorte There 16 Lew Wallace There 38 Hammond Here 31 Emerson There 22 LaPorte Here 30 Roosevelt Here 21 Horace Mann Here Guy Wellman 38 Roland Sheets 30 Robert Maudlin 23 Campbell Holt 5 Elroy St. Clair 3 Valpo 21 Valpo 41 Valpo 16 Valpo 26 Valpo 20 Valpo 33 Valpo 22 Valpo 24 Valpo 30 Valpo 23 Valpo 28 Valpo 38 Valpo 17 Valpo 23 Valpo 28 Valpo 19 Valpo 21 Valpo 33 Valpo 24 Sixlv-two Valpo Nine Excels in Fielding, Pitching Early in the season Valpai-aiso High School students take up the cry of the most popular sport in the United States, baseball. Gloves, bats, balls are certain indications that soon " men with spikes, " will be work- ing on the diamond exhibiting all in the wares of hooks, drops, and curves. Although considered a minor sport in V. H. S., base- ball waves its hands and students come run- ning from every corridor and hall in the building. The nine comprised of Brice Mc- Cann, James Stoner, Kenneth Rhoda, Harold Henson, Courtney Holt, Carroll Sheets, Her- bert Claudon, Robert Thorgi-en, and Robert Pierce proved a squad of sportsmen with the zealous ambition to win games which, of course, they did. The coaches, Mr. Brown and Mr. Pauley, helped in spirit and gave tips to the players, which proved a great aid. Baseball, not always as pleasant as in the training camps of the big leagues, is some- times a great deal too disagreeable, hav- ing to be played in all sorts of weather, rain, snow, or sunshine. Practice starts directly after school and ends usually at dark, and sometimes is held over for a few jogs around the diamond.

Track and Golf Popular Spring Sports The " thinlies " , the name with which the baseball team dubbed the track squad, held more truth than mirth. On the Valparaiso High School cinder track and vault pits, brown, lithe, muscular athletes practiced to compete in field meets which were to be held in the future. Coach Powell resumed track after it had been dropped from the athletic ac- tivities for several years. By the end of the season, the team had competed against Hobart, Michigan City, Tolleston, and Ches- terton. The team also engaged in a confer- ence at Mishawaka and the sectional meet at Gary. Outstanding in the meets were: Camp- bell Kane, Robert Kitchen, Roger Henry, Ed- mund Sawyer, Robert Rhoda, Harold Jones, and Russell Glover. This year the track squad should prove to be a great sporting asset to the school since only one of the group graduated, and the experience gained by the squad through last year ' s encounters will be a big factor to- wards a successful season. Early in the spring future aspirants for the National Open golf championship trek to the Country Club to. practice swinging drivers and brassies. Although this vision might be somewhat fanciful, the golf team is the pick of V. H. S. golfers and truly deserves recognition almost as fitting as the National Open. The four golfers composing the team were John Ruge, Adolph Jankowski, Robert Beach, and James Mahoney. Six matches were won, one tied, and five were lost. Ruge played number one position, Jankowski num- ber two, Mahoney number three, and Beach number four. Mr. William Kendall was the golfing coach. GOLF TEAM Adolph Jankowski, Han- - LaForce, John Ruge.

Noonday League Offers Variety of Sports For those who are not occupied in active competition by the sports of the school, noon- day league offers its many branches of ath- letics, the main ones including basketball, Softball, and football. Basketball is the ma- jor activity, drawing many spectators from the school to witness the games which are all played during the noon hour. About ten minutes are allowed to eat lunch ; the whis- tle is blown, and shouting in the gj-mnasium indicates that the game is about to begin. Those teams participating this year in bas- ketball were captained by James Zimmer- man, David Gott, Robert Beach, Frank Leachman, Robert Hurley, Edward Skinner, Robert Benton, Kenneth Rhoda, James Hor- ney, and Dwight Arndt. Gott and Zimmer- man tied for first place in both the first and second rounds of play. Zimmerman has a slight edge due to the fact that the first round playoff was won by that team. The second major activity of the noon- day leaguers is softball. Teams are organiz- ed and under their respective heads compe- tition waxes hot throughout the season. The captains of the teams are as follows : William Windle, Leonard Kraft, Merritt Church, Robert Peters, Thomas Kiriazis, Hilton Gramps, Hubert Harshbarger, and Raymond Berndt. Although a non-organized sport in noon- day league, football holds its o ni as a draw- ing attraction to the youths. Merely, first there first play, is the slogan. In football, noonday leaguers choose teams among them- selves and play until time for school to re- sume. Coach Powell is the overseer of all boys ' noonday league activities. Sixty-five G. A. A.

Junior, Senior G. A. A. Boast Large Membership Last spring the G. A. A. members elect- ed their officers for the ensuing year ; name- ly, president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer. The remaining members of the G. A. A. Board were selected by the senior members that served on the Board last year, together with the suggestions of Miss Hol- lars. These remaining Board members com- prise the managers of each individual sport and chairmen for the social activities scrap- book, and art manager. The G. A. A. Board holds special meet- ings to decide on certain points and problems, all of which are voted on by the organization at a regular meeting. At the end of the year, the non-senior members of the Board select the most out- standing senior girl, to whom is presented the G. A. A. cup with her name and the year engraved on it, on Award Day. Last year this cup was awarded to Ann Maulsby. The cup remains the property of the school and is kept by the school. The main social function of the year is the basket-ball banquet at which the numer- als, monograms, and chevrons are awarded. Also at the termination of the soccer season a picnic is held annually. The attendance at these functions is usually 100%. Other fea- tures of the G. A. A. program are the play days which are sponsored by the different G. A. A. organizations of the county and state for the purpose of getting better ac- quainted, rather than for competition. Sixty-: SOPHOMORE G. A. A. Row 1 Bottom : Marjorie Hamilton. Mar iie Gilliland.

Girls Choose Sports The Girls ' Athletic Association of Val- paraiso High School allows all girls in the school to participate in the sports in which they are interested. The cl ub is sponsored by Miss Mary Jo Hollars, girls ' physical edu- cation instructor. The G. A. A. now has 150 active and associate members. Those who have earned 50 points and participate in the various sports are actives ; those who have signified their intention of participating in the various activities are associate members. Last year the G. A. A. became a mem- ber of the National Amateur Athletic Feder- ation, whose purpose is to combat certain un- wholesome tendencies which hinder girls ' athletics. This is one of the aims of the G. A. A., besides which the girls enjoy their recreation to the utmost, the play being fair and clean. The G. A. A. holds bi-weekly meetings on Thursday mornings. The programs are in charge of a committee appointed each time by the president. This year the pro- grams consisted of talks by the school nurse, Miss Smith, discussion by the members on points of the Constitution, reports of various sports ' chairmen, pantomimes by members, and piano selections. Sixty-! Girls Play Many Games at Noonday Hour To offer the girls who stay at school dur- ing the noon hour suitable recreation, and for those who are unable to stay for the after- school activities, the G. A. A. provides a noonday league of sports. These sports are divided into two classes, indoor and outdoor. The former consist of ping-pong, shuffleboard, tether- ball, loop tennis, and bowling. The outdoor activities consist of health ball, horseshoe, badminton, and deck tennis. In the outdoor activities last fall, horse- shoe and health ball tournaments were run off. Delayne Kumnick was the health ball champion and Mary Muster was runner-up. In horseshoe, Evelyn Witner was the victor with Iva Mae Berkey runner-up. When the weather became bad, the girls had to hold their games in the gym. Ping- pong tournaments, doubles and singles, were held. The winners were Martha Snow and Marge Field in the doubles, and Annadell Maxwell in the singles. The runners-up in these tournaments were Gladys Makovsky and Blanche Belaschky in the doubles and Evelyn Witner in the singles. There are no class team tournaments held in these sports, but, nevertheless, the competition is just as keen as if there were. The noonday league chairman, Evelyn Witner, is present eveiy noon to supervise the games and record the events that take place. Since the boys usually have the gym floor at noon, there is very little space for the girls. Consequently, the bowling and bad- minton tournaments had to be run off after the boys took up their noonday league base- ball out of doors. Twenty-five G. A. A. points are given for each sport, and winners and runners-up receive up to 2.5 points in addition. NOONDAY LEAGUE J.

A. opened its season of sports last September with the game of soccer. The girls reported and were divided into teams of nine each by the soccer chairman, Char- lotte Cavell. The captains of the eleven teams were : Lucille Christopher, Mary Cleveland, Mari- angeneen Helvie, Dorothy Kumnick, Ber- neice Brown, Betty Dobbi ns, Marga -et Meagher, Beryl Ann Brownell, and Martha Snow. A Winner-Loser ' s tournament was held in which the winners played winners un- til there was a final winner. Captain Brown ' s No. 5 team played Captain Brownell ' s team No. 8 in the final game and defeated them by a score of 2-0. Next the class teams were selected by the chairman and Miss Hollai-s. An elimina- tion tournament was played — the seniors playing the juniors and the sophomores play- ing the freshmen. The winners of these two games then played for the championship. It so happened that the seniors after four years of soccer, decided to show the under- classmen just how the game should be played. They started out by defeating the juniors by a score of 2-1. Thus the juniors were elimi- nated. The next obstacle was the winner of the freshman-sophomore encounter, which was the sophomores, who had won by a score of 4-0. The seniors evidently were frightened by this large score and forgot how good they were, because the game was tied until the last few minutes, when the seniors had a chance to make good a penalty kick, which they did, making the final score 2-1. Soccer is the first major sport of the year and takes up the first quarter of our year of sports. This is one of the most popu- lar activities in the girls ' program. SOCCER 1.

Volleyball Tilts Fast and Hilarious Following the soccer season, volleyball be- came the major sport on the G. A. A. calendar. The girls that reported were divided into eight teams of thirteen each. The captains elected were in respective order: Doris Lutz, Martha Joyce Smith, Bernice Schneider, Evelyn Anderson, Edna Shideler, Nena Winder, Eileen Hurley, and Ann Lowenstine. Team 8 won the tournament that was played by winning all six games while Team 5, the runner-up, lost just one game. Following the first tournament, class teams were picked by Miss Hollars and the volleyball chairman, Margaret Schramm. In the tourney the seniors were scheduled to play the sophomores, the juniors to play the freshmen. Of course, the seniors, thinking they could surely win the tour- ney, went into the game in an over-confident frame of mind. However, they were fooled, being defeated by the sophomores 19 to 10. The juniors showed their superiority over the freshmen by winning 33 to 18. The final game, as the score shows, was very exciting, neither team sure of victory until the final whistle. The freshmen came back after last year ' s defeat by the seniors and showed that they were a superior team. Just before Christmas vacation, a team of picked high school girls played a team composed of alumni girls home for vacation, showing that girls must be improving in volleyball skill ; the high school girls won 31 to 15. The team picked from the high school was composed of Margaret Schramm, Berneice Brown, Mariangeneen Helvie, Edna Shideler, Jean Morland, Beryl Ann Brown- ell. Mildred Warner, Ruth Wark, Nena Winder, Doris Lutz, and Charlotte Cavell.

A. A., girls ' basketball. The ninety-six girls that reported were divided into A and B teams, with a possibil- ity of getting on the A team or being put back on the B team at any time during the season. The A team consists of girls who are more advanced in the skill of playing, while the B team is made up of the less experienced ones. The A team was divided into seven teams and the B team had nine. A round-robin tournament was run off, in which every team played every other team. In finding the winner of this tournament, a scoring was made. For win- ning a game a team received 2 points, for tying, 1 point. Team 3 of the division A won, having won all their games. Teams 4 and 9 tied for honors in the division, each winning all but one game, which was tied. Class teams were selected by Miss Hollars and Edna Shideler, the chairman. The sopho- mores were to play the freshmen, the juniors to play the seniors. The sophomores beat the new- comers to the tune of 13-0, while the mighty sen- iors beat the juniors 15-8. The first and third year teams eliminated, the second and fourth year squads took up the battle. The seniors showed su- periority, 10-2. The captains of class teams were: seniors, Doris Lutz ; juniors, Charlotte Cavell ; sopho- mores, Carrie Shupe ; and freshmen, Gladys Ma- kovsky.

The archery chairman was Charlotte Smith, who presided at the practices held after school. The winner of the tournament, in which the thirty-eight girls that reported participated, was Beryl Ann Brownell and the runner-up was Edna Shideler. Tumbling, under its chairman, Martha Joyce Smith, was held just after the volleyball season. The girls were put on A and B teams according to their skill in the sport. To be on the B team, one had to pass six stunts ; to be advanced to the A team, the girls were required to do ten stunts. These were: a head stand, a knee stand, stomach balance, backward and forward somersaults, a hand spring, an original stunt, jump over the two horses, walk along the ladder, and chinning. Baseball and track followed the Easter vaca- tion. Tournaments were run off and teams picked, and the elimination tournaments were then play- ed. The girls then signed up for the various events in track, and these were run off by the chairman, Margaret Meagher. The tennis season is enjoyed by all because it comes in the spring, when the weather is ideal and all G. A. A. members have the urge to get out doors to play. Tournaments, singles and doubles, were held, winners and runners-up were given extra G. A. A. points. New activities this year were the miscellane- ous sports, which the girls take part in outside of school, such as skating, hiking, bicycling, which though not under the supervision of any one per- son, are reported by the participants, and G. A. A. points are given accordingly. In the last nine weeks given over to the four minor sports, track, baseball, archery, and tennis, baseball is the only one in which a class tourna- ment as well as an elimination tournament is run off. Track events are run off as in a meet, and in archery the winner is determined by form, accu- racy of shot, and distance.
