H. S. • • • The art of cooking demands accurate mea- surement and precision as is emphasized by Miss Bartholomew to three eager adherents, Rozella Stafford, Wilma Herring, and Marjorie Hamilton, — " camera, lights, action, " even invades the school room in the form of the dramatics class, supervised by Mr. Conkling, — Mr. Bigelow instructs Winslow Jones in the fascinating science of wood carving, a sub- ordination of manual training, — drawing to scale seems to disconcert Charles Suesse un- til Mr. Brown enlightens him in the mechanical drawing class, — lithe fingers and concen- tration counteract those abominable errors in typing according to Miss Hudson, as she in- spects Janet Take ' s work, — Mr. Kendall oversees investigation into the exciting micro- scopic world in the biology laboratory, — Mr. Pauley never fails to arouse interest in the chemistry laboratory as is shown by the ten7e face of David Williams. 11 • SCULPTORS OFF DUTY • • • Stepping from the car, Miss Welty and Miss Sieb were snapped, — Mrs. Krueger ceased her noon library instruction long enough to pose for a " shot, " — as Mrs. Foor directed Louie in the placement of the bleachers for group pictures, she defied the camera, — Mr. Pauley could not entirely give us his attention away from his book, — a new Nash and Mr. Koch were " caught " off-guard, — on her morning trek between junior high and high school, we chanced upon Miss Bartholomew, — Mr. Julian forfeited a minute from his occupations, — out of his professional into his sport garb, Mr. Kendall was " caught " tallying his golf score, — Mr. Schenck gave us his most engaging smile, — passing to morning convocation Miss McGillicuddy stood in the patio ready to be photoed, — -looking on with apprehension, Mr. Jessee attended football practice, — a gust of wind came as Miss Hudson paused, — Mr. Conkling on his way " in " after lunch liour, — Mr. Wiggins, rested between class and ball practice, — those in- separables, Miss Miller, Miss Shaucr, and Miss Stoner found time to smile for us, — having their pictures taken was time to play for Mr. Brown, Mr. Reid, and Mr. Bigelow. In the Eye of the Camera From Freshmen lo Seniors • CLAY CAST INTO PATTERNS • • • Js the master sculptor must select his material zeith a definite purpose, so must all pupils be put into classes as seniors, juniors, sophonmres, fresluuen. The de- siijuer and zvorker has in his mind a picture of zvhat he hopes to fashion. I ' he instructors haz ' e in mind an ideal for aecomplishimiits for each class and hope to see each pupil dez ' clop and pass from one class to another, until he comes out in tJie final niolil, a senior. 13 Seniors Molded and Uscur Alhiiisuii Jerome Barens i1;niv Alli ' tt ' iiiiiiiic I ' .arkley Oscar Allanson—Va Ipost 4; Sciemus Club 1, 2, 3. 4: Debate Club 2; Hi-Y 4.

Seib. The class officers elected for the year of ' 39 were Lawrence Dahl and Gladys Makovsky as president and secretary-treasurer respectively. Also, in this election, they chose Dorothy Ragsdale as editor- in-chief ,and Robert Sievers as business manager of the J ' alcuiaii of 1940. With a membership of 130, the students have proved competent to carry on for the outgoing seniors. Many have been outstanding in extra-curricular and curricular activities as well. A few may be mentioned as to prominence. Gerald- ine Bryant held those honor points at fifteen while Beatrice Mann was also high scoring in the scholastic field; in music Robert Gratton and Gladys Makosvky were noteworthy; ath- letics offered Harvey Varner, Charles Clifford, and Lawrence Dahl; and James Smith was active in the Hi-Y. 27 Row 1 Row 2 Row 3 Row 4 Row 5 SOPHOMORE GIRLS Bottom: Julia Tuthill, Helen Butterfield.

They have been friendly and salutary to those unfamiliar and inexperienced with the school and its activities. Composed of 150 students, this group has made remarkable advancement in every phase of school life. Many rated high as to scholastic endeavor and not a few received scholastic awards. The band and orchestra includes several sophomores; likewise the a cappella choir and the two glee clubs. This class was also very active in other school clubs and organizations. Those interested and outstanding in the various fields of activity are to be commend- ed. Walter Molinder and Gene Hart contributed their share in athletics; Carolyn Lindsey and Rosemary Koch were superior in their studies; Janet Shauer attained honors in the glee club and a cappella choir; and Stanley Slerbenz and Deltha Johnston were active in the band. For a class unsponsored and one which holds no social functions, this group is well able to carry on as upperclassmen and to be successful in all that it undertakes. 28 FRESHMAN BOYS Bottom: Sherman Cotterman.

This staff, consisting of nine mem- bers, is elected by the seniors themselves to carry out the work on the book. All of these, with the exception of the editor- in-chief and the business manager, are elected in their senior year. These two, elected in their junior year, serve as a])- prentices to the preceding staff. The members work a period or more a day under the supervision of Mrs. Foor, the journalism instructor and sponsor of the annual. In the fall, the staff is faced with the problem of determining the general theme, arrangement, and art work of the book. Once this is settled, representa- tives of competing engraving and cover companies and photographers are inter- viewed. A contract is given to the com- panies which seem best able to develop the general plan. After the contracts are drawn up, the work on the book really begins. Taking pictures, writing, typing, and proofread- ing are a few of the numerous duties of the staff members. Two days are set apart each fall taking group pictures and individual senior pictures. The staff aids in getting the groups together and later identifying the pictures. Because the pages of the ' alcniaii contain no advertising, the money for financing the book is raised in other ways. The seniors pay dues of twenty-five cents a month and main- tain a candy store in the school building. This store is cared for by the seniors themselves who volunteer their services. Candy and ice cream are also sold at football and basketball games, at tournaments and during the ten minute intermission every morning. VALENIAN STAFF Top Picture — David Williams.

While the beginning class learns the fundamental principles of journalism and gains experience in writing news stories, editorials, and headlines, the advanced class applies the knowledge learned the previous semester. The appointments to the staff posts are made by Mrs. Foor, the journalism instructor and Fa! post sponsor. These appointments are based on the ability and aptness of the stu- dents in certain phases of the work as displayed in journalism I. The paper is financed by advertisements, which are solicited from local merchants by the fall staff, and by a subscription price of fifty cents. The spring staff finishes collect- ing the advertisements obtained by the previous staff. As a special feature this year, to enable the paper to put out more six-page issues, the journalism classes sold programs at the home football games. The programs were paid for by advertisements of town merchants, so that the classes profited by selling each pro- gram. This greatly aided the financial status of the paper. The bi-weekly publication consists of both four and six page issues depending on at- tendant circumstances. One week is spent mostly in finding and gathering the news together, writing it up, and composing suitable headlines. The second week is spent in proofreading, planning and projiaring the general lay-out, and distributing the papers. The young reporters are given definite news assignments by the faculty advisor and are greatly aided in this task by contributions from faculty members, the student body, and the first journalism class.

COMMERCIAL CLUB • • • The Commercial Club, an organization of thirty-five members, helps the students who are interested in business and commerce. This year, the pro- grams consisted of a series of talks on the qualities necessary for vocations and professions. Local business and i)rofessional men were guest speakers. The social event of the year is the club banquet which is held in the spring, and to which all commercial students are invited. Everyone taking any of the commercial subjects offered in the high school may join this organization which is under the leadership of Miss Dessa Hudson. • HOME ECONOMICS CLUB • • • With the aid of Miss Bartholomew, the group of forty girls comprising the Home Economics Club try to live up to their motto, " We believe in minds that think, hearts that love, and hands that work. " ' Some of the activities that are held throughout the year are parties with the Laporte Home Economics Club, the sale of fruit cakes at Thanksgiving, bazaar, Christmas party, box social with some other club, and a Mothers ' Day Tea. One of the outstanding events of the second semester was the Val- entine party which was held in the high school library.

The club was founded by Miss Stoner who now acts as sponsor. It is comprised of fourteen members who are Latin students and are especially interested in learning about Roman customs. During the year the mem- bers plan and carry out many projects. This year the club made a special study of Roman houses which were drawn and illustrated on the blackboard. They also made a Roman calendar and studied its origin. • GERMAN CLUB • • • The German Club is the older of the school ' s two language clubs. With Mr. Koch, the Ger- man instructor, as sponsor, it is comprised of eighteen mem- bers from the German classes. The aim of the club is to enable the German students to put their knowledge to a prac- tical use. The organization this year has been most fortunate in having a student, Hilde Buck, who recently visited Ger- many and who graciously related her experiences to the club. The club, for entertainment, each year has a Christmas party and instead of holding it in the school library, as in former years, it was held this year, at Millicoma Lodge, north of Valparaiso. 35 m Lippman, Robert Benton, Roy Heiiiert Mendel, Kenneth Urschel, Winslow Jones, Max Beier.

The subjects under discussion vary from radio to photography and in the last two years a special di- vision, which is engaged in the construction of model air- planes, has been founded. The club is an active member of the Indiana Junior Academy of Science, a statewide organ- ization of science clubs. This group meets once a year at some university in the state at which time things of a scientific nature are exhibited. David Williams of the local unit served as president of the Academy this year.

This club, composed of seniors and juniors who take dramatics, is sponsored by Mr. Conkling, English and dramatic arts instructor, and functions as a class. One requirement of the course is to take a written test on a play every Friday. These plays are secured from the drama library in the sponsor ' s room. Each student must read at least eighteen plays a semester, consisting of seven one-act plays and eleven three- or-more act plays. Six make-ups, with classmates acting as models, are required of each person. These consist of three men and three women, juvenile, middle age, and old age. An outside ])roject must be completed each semester — the biograptiy of a famous actor, ac- tress, or playwright and the constructing and furnishing of a small stage. For the first semester the outside project is a biography of a famous actor, actress, producer, or playwright; that for the second semester is the construction of a model stage. Many of these projects have been outstanding; for instance, the biography which one girl reported on was about Cecil B. De Mille, and was received directly from his secretary in Hollywood. One of the stages constructed by a boy was an automatic affair which used a revolving unit, turned on and off its own lights, revolved its own scenery, and started and stopped itself. Some of the scenery effects produced in these minia- ture stages are remarkable for beauty and effectiveness. Hours of concentration and effort are required to memorize the script of a play and to practice it. The plays are cast so that each per- son has one major part and, if possible, also a minor part. Plays are presented before the student body at Wednesday morning convoca- tions. No charge is made, but the participants gain much through the experience. The plays presen+ed this year were N ' aucy Orr ' s Day. Roiiiancc Is a Riickcf.

Among these are the selling of schedule pencils, the maintenance of a checkroom at basketball games, the 0])era- tion of a second-hand bookstore, and ushering at school as- semblies. The operation and planning of the club activities are car- ried out under the supervision of the executive board and Mr. Schenck, the club sponsor. This board has weekly meetings at which the problems confronting the club are brought up and discussed. Several activities in which the Hi-Y boys participate are the annual Father-and-Son Banquet, attendance at different churches in a body, and entertaining the Girl Reserves and Home Economics Clubs. The club, which is affiliated with the Young Men ' s Chris- tian Association, participates in district and state conferences, and last summer Robert Weiss, secretary, represented the club at the Second National Hi-Y Congress in Berea, Ken- tucky.

These are presented at the annual May Breakfast which brings a climax to the year and serves as a farewell party for the seniors. • JUNIOR RESERVES • • • The Junior Girl Reserves comprising thirty-five members is under the supervision of Miss Shauer. This group, as the others do, elect their own officers which consist of a i)resident, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, program chairman, and scribe. The president, vice- president, secretary, and treasurer perform the same duties as they do in other clubs. The program chairman plans and supervises the meetings after the business of the day is transacted. The scribe writes an account of the meetings for the ' alposf. Special commit- tees are appointed from time to time by the president to plan the parties, hikes, picnics, and other special features. 39 FRESHMAN-SOPHOMORE GIRL RESERVES Bottom: Rosemary Koch, Evelyn Pearson, Betty Lovi C]audon, Patricia Wolf, Mary Jane Stoltz, Florence ANeals.

R. • • •Under the sponsor- ship of Miss McGillicuddy, the freshman-sophomore group of Girl Reserves is the largest group, numbering sixtj -five. Though younger than the other girls, the freshmen and sophomores have the same code and song. There are no restrictions on mxmbershi]) in any of the three groups except that the girls join the group which represents their class. When she earns at least twelve points, a girl may be inducted or initiated into the club. At the induction ceremony the code is ex- plained by the officers of the three groups to the new members who repeat the code and promise to live up to it to the best of their ability. Points are earned in many different ways. Attending church or Sunday School, taking part in Girl Reserve programs, and helping at the senior candy counter are a few of these. The girls usually take part in their programs themselves, but occasionally talks are given by outsiders on subjects which especially concern Girl Reserve work. Mrs. Sheffield, Mrs. French, Mrs. Krue- ger, Mr. Julian and Mr. Kendall were among the outsiders to speak. For entertainment the programs consist of spelling bees, quizzes, and musical programs. At Christmas time they sell tuberculosis seals and prepare bas- kets for the poor. Serving at school dinners and ushering at the May Festival and graduation exercises are a few of the services they per- form. The Girl Reserve code contains many points that, if followed, does much toward molding the characters of its members. A Girl Reserve tries to be impartial in judgment, ready for service, loyal to friends, and sincere at all times. The Keeper of the Light at the induction ceremony this year was Peggy French, president of the senior group. Betty Stanton was the Herald of the Light. The guest speaker was Mrs. Alma Krueger, who spoke on " Living Up to the Girl Reserve Code.

Throughout the years it has en- joyed great success in accom])lishing this primary purpose. The club participates in out-of-town meets, and performs between the halves of bas- ketball games at home and in other cities. Since its beginning, it has furnished recrea- tion for the boys and entertainment for various clubs and organizations of Valparaiso. Contrary to the custom of previous years, the club did not choose officers this year. Membership is unrestricted and open to any boy enjoying tumbling. 9 ATHLETIC CLUB • ® • The membership of the Athletic Club changes with the different sports ' seasons. Formerly, the club was open to any boy who was interested in athletics. Later, it was decided to limit the membership to the boys who go out for cer- tain sports. During the football and baseball seasons, Mr. Wiggins calls together and instructs the boys who participate in these sports. While baseball or track is in progress, Mr. Powell calls meetings of the basketball or track boys. Although there are no officers, the club meets on an average of once a week. Rules pertaining to the playing of the various sports and the coming contests are discussed by the coaches. 41 ORCHESTRA Row 1 Bottom: Robert Laughery, Rol3ert Sievers. Walter Kline.

The orchestra, nine soloists and four ensembles won first division rating and also won the right to compete in the State Band and Orchestra Contest held at Huntington. Here, the orchestra received a second place rating; however, two ensembles and four soloists received a first division rating. Three of these soloists were entered in the Junior Division, but one senior entrant, Deltha Johnston, bassoon player in both band and orchestra, went to the National Band Contest at Elkhart, and received a third division rating. The orchestra meets every Wednesday eve- ning in the gym. Orchestra Officers Charles Suesse, vice-president Jean MacDonald, sec ' y-treas.

A pep band, which plays for basl ;etball games, was organized for those who wished to play on these occasions. The marching band held practice for one hour every school morning last fall. Besides increasing the band membership to sixty members, Mr. Rogers added a color guard, a twirling drum major, and two majorettes all of whom added a great deal to the band ' s appearance on parade. The band performed at every home football game, presenting a completely different program each time. The programs con- sisted of intricate formation and drill work by both band and color guard, and solo baton twirling by Drum Major, Douglas Moe, and Majorettes, Frances Erea and Deltha Johns- ton. In addition to the football games, the band marched in several political parades. The newly formed Band Parents ' Club honored the band with a banquet at the end of the marching season. During the 3 ' ear the concert band played at several Wednesday morn- ing convocations and held two concerts in the spring. On Sunday afternoon, February 19, the band gave a concert in the gymnasium in order to earn money to purchase new uniforms. The Band Parents ' Club also gave a dance for high school students on the Saturday afternoon during the sectional tourna- ment. No charge was made for the dance, but the students who attended donated mon- ey for the uniforms. The music was furnished by five pieces from Bill Fryar ' s Or- chestra. After a band member has earned 800 points, he is eligible to wear a band sweater. These points are earned by being on time to practice, memorizing solo pieces, keeping the music library, and making public appearances before various organizations. The band wins many awards in national, state, and district contests. 43 BOYS G-LEE CLUB Row 1 Row 2 Row 3 Row 4 Thi( John Camptjell, Clyde Harville. Vernon Kraft.

This organization, under the direction of Mr. Rogers, meets every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon on the gymnasium stage. Here the twenty-three members prac- tice and worls; out many difficult selections. During the year the club sings many times before the student body, faculty meetings, and on various other occasions. The liglit opera, which is held in the spring, brings a chmax to the year. One- fifth of a credit is given to each member of the glee clubs for a semester ' s work. • GIRL CHORISTERS • ® • The Girls ' Glee C]ub, un- der the sponsorship of Mrs. Mary Myers, has an enrollment of seventy-six. The first appearance of the G ' ee Club was at the Christmas season in a musical program given before the assembly. The Glee Clubs have given the Gilbert-Sullivan operetta, " Tlir irdiidolicrs ' this year, notwithstanding the re- vised program. The Girls ' Glee Club is unrestricted in mem- bership, and any person really interested in music is allowed to join. The purpose of this organization is to give training in singing and expression through music. Boys ' Glee Club Officers Mr. Rogers, sponsor Dale Kohler, secretary-treas.

Two performances were given — a matinee for grade school children and an eve- ning performance for adults. Although practice began in January, the cast was selected in February. The girls ' leads were taken by Harriett Rex, Gladys Makovsky- and Lillian Gilliland, while Robert Hurley and Donald Wertman had the male leads. Mark Sink and Robert Gratton were especially outstanding in the humorous parts they played. Little profit was made, but the experience gained by the venture amply repaid the participants. This year The Gondoliers, also a Gilbert and Sullivan production, was given. Practice began the first of March and the light opera was produced in May. 9 NEW SCHOOL CHOIR • • • In molding the musical life of Valpiaraiso High School, Mrs. Myers, in 1938, organized the A Cappella Choir which v as the first organization of its kind in the high school. After the first semester of the choir, the double-quartette was dropped, since all of its members were in the choir. During the school year the choir meets three times a week. In the summer of 1938, this group practiced every Tuesday, and in August, entered the Chicagoland Music Festival. The comments of the judges were most favorable, although it was the only high school choir in the contest. The choir sings for many school and community programs, including caroling for the Kiwanis and Rotary clubs and the city schools. Practicing is done on the gym stage. On Fridays, the choir is divided into quartettes and octettes which sing the songs practiced during the week, be- fore the rest of the group. During the second semester, the choir was partly in charge of two practice teachers from Valparaiso University. A CAPPELLA CHOIR Row 1 Bottom: Martha Wharton.

This show is produced by Miss Harrison, teacher of physical education, with the aid of grade and high school teachers. The children of the fourth, fifth, and sixth grades, and junior and senior high school participate in the program. The general theme of the pro- gram was to show the evolution of the dance from the days of ancient Greece down to our present modern interpretation. Starting with the " Dance of the Grecian Maidens, " the program progressed through folk dances, " Indian War Dance, " the " American Square Dance, " and ended with our modern waltz interpretation. Elaborate settings and appro- priate costumes added to the beauty of the affair. 46 Students Receive Awards Awards are given each year to those students showing outstanding merit in certain fields.

He heads the athletic program of the school and is main basketball coach. Coach John Wiggins, jovial coach of the Valpa- raiso High School ' s football and baseball teams, has been here for three years and has established an enviable record for himself by turning out an undefeated eleven in 1938. Mr. Kendall is teacher, coach of the golf team, and Junior Viking football team. He has had a five-year record in Valparaiso High School in which time he has proved his worth to the system. • THE NEW FIELD • • • Valparaiso has added to its already beautiful high school grounds another thing of beauty, a football field equipped with lights for night playing. The equipment consists of eight sixty-foot poles on which are constructed at a cost of three thousand dollars, forty-eight lights. This seventy-two thousand watt system was in- stalled by the local firm. Van Ness and Company. Included in the lighting system is a public address system which extends into the gym. This address system, which can be operated from the gymnasium or the field was presented by Mr. Mandel Lowenstine to the high school before the night of the dedication. Two thousand people witnessed the dedication on the lighted field. Mr. Julian, su- perintendent; Mr. Jessee, principal; Mr. Tilton, president of the school board; and Mr. Fleishbein, representative for the mayor, dedicated the field over the loud speaking system. The band, in colorful green and white uniforms, played and marched up and down the field. Because of this improvement, football, for the first time, was a self-supporting sport in this school.

Gilbert Gregory, JUNIOR VIKINGS PLAY • • • The Junior Vikings, more often called scrubs, played a four-game schedule under the leadership of Coach William R. Kendall. On this four-game schedule were listed Plymouth, Michigan City, LaPorte, and Hobart. In their first game, the Junior Vikings tied Plymouth 0-0. Although the Junior Vikings threat- ened several times being on the one-foot line at one time, they were unable to score. In the Michigan City game, the Vikings were handed a stiff defeat 26-18. LaPorte then came to Valparaiso, and the Junior Vikings were again held to a scoreless tie. In the Hobart tiff the Junior Vikings were defeated 24-7. These Junior Vikings will do much to fill the gaps left by graduation in the varsity squad. Much is expected of the second team. When a man is hurt or someone is not fulfilling his assignment, a substitute is sent in from the second team. The team is often called the shock troops. These boys have to be prepared for any emergencies that may arise; there- fore, they have to be as well-trained and in as good condition as any of the first string regulars. Most of these second stringers will be next year ' s regulars and they will know exactly what to do to meet an emergency. Something can also be said about the spirit of these boys, for there are no better rooters than they. Top: Arthur Kilmer, Don Zulich.

Usually an election for these is held just previous to the opening of the basketball season, but this year try-outs were held and a selection was made in September. An opportunity was given to any individual or group, who so desired, to demonstrate his or her ability. Af- ter this the student body voted; and the result was a team of two boys and two girls. This quartet, although elected for the football season, has continued its work through the basketball season as well. - - ifwr. While the team is still in a pile, Gott blocks out a Plymouth Rlioda. man for • VARSITY ELEVEN HAVE UNDEFEATED SEASON • • • For the first time in this school ' s history the Vil ings went through a nine-game season without a defeat. On top of all the honors piled on the team was Valparaiso ' s first all-state football player, Bob Rhoda. Not only that, but two line men, Jack Niksch and Lee Soltz were given honor- able mention on the all-state team. Continuing from a Lowell victory of the previous year, the gridders defeated Crown Point on their own field 26-0. This started the Vikings ' touch down period mania. At Rensselaer Valpo scored twice in ten minutes on two long marches, one of 67 yards and one of 55 yards, and beat Rensselaer 26-7. In their next game the Vikings out-pointed Plymouth. Then came the night of the dedication. On this occasion the Vikings compiled their highest score of the year, 35. Warsaw got nothing.

Rhoda was the outstanding back of this game running 58 and 63 yards respectively. On October 7, for the first time in fifteen years, Valparaiso defeated LaPorte 20-7. But to do this they had to overcome a 7-0 lead in the second quarter. This was accomplished by a Rhoda to Hensen pass to the four yard line. On the following Friday night the Vikings trounced Tolleston 26-7. Their attack was led by sparkling runs, and on this night Rhoda averaged twelve yards per try. October 21 found the " Brickies " of Hobart in Valpo. Ho wever, the Vikings turned them back by a score of 26-6. On October 28 Valpo played the " Pioneers " of Hammond Clark; however, due to a hard charging line the Vikings rolled over Clark by a score of 28-0. In the final game on a wet field Valpo defeated Lowell 19-7.

The Valparaiso Vikings came forward They started their season with an im- pressive win over North Judson and ended with an eight game winning streak. During the season they won nine and lost six conference games, and ended in a third place tie in the western division of the Northern Indiana High School Conference and won all seven non-conference games. The Vikings were champions in a holiday tournament in which they first defeated LaPorte in an overtime, and then Michigan City. By grad- uation Coach Powell will lose six of the first team boys: Harold Henson, Charles Skinner, Guy Wellman, Robert Rhoda, Ray Marrell, and John Stoner.

Tliey started by defeating North Judson 36-6 and Washing- ton 21-18; however, they lost the next three to Froebel 16-17, Horace Mann 10-16, and Washington 22-32. The Junior Vikings then v on from Roosevelt 14 — 11, after which they lost to Hammond 21-25. The reserves trounced Whiting 27-16, Horace Mann 19-16, and Emerson 30-20. They lost a close overtime to Hammond 22-24, followed by a drop to Hammond Tech. 14-22, and an overtime to Roosevelt 16-17. They then won one out of the next three, that one being Froebel 19-14, losing to LaPorte in an overtime 12-14, and Whiting 20-33. After winning their first overtime from Rochester 23-21, they lost to Lew Wallace 17-21 and won their last game from Michigan City 21-16. e VIKINGS IN TOURNEY • • • Valparaiso, for the first time in several years, was host to competing teams in the sectional tournament. The Vikings learned witli appre- hension that their first game was with the highly touted Emerson team, who were the 1939 champions in the western division of the N. L H. S. C. The Valpo quintet upset Emerson 26-21, Skinner leading the attack with eleven points. They went on to elim- inate Horace Mann 28-22; Skinner again topped the scoring with nine points. The Vik- ings then rolled over Tolleston 28-21, Henson setting the pace with eight points. In the finals, Valparaiso defeated Lew Wallace in a fast, hardf ought game, ending 40-34, and Dahl led the scoring with seventeen points. This won Valparaiso the right to com- pete in the regional tournament the following week, where the Green and White were defeated by Rensselaer with a score of 26-27. 56 BASEBALL SQUAD 1938 Row 1: Robert Bagdon, Norman Pierce, Roland Sheets.

Out of a fifteen game schedule the local team won eight and lost but five, and two games were not played be- cause of weather. On April 14th, the team traveled to South Bend and, with Rhoda pitching, won 3-0. Three days later they beat Hammond behind Henson ' s pitching and a timely blow by Bob Wulff. Four days after this Rhoda pitched a six hit game against Hammond Tech and won it, 7-1. On April 30. Valparaiso was tied for the lead in the conference due to a 16-3 win over Roosevelt behind Rhoda ' s pitching. On May 3, Molinder shut out Jackson 3-0. After losing to Whiting on May 6, they beat them on May 17 3-1 by Rhoda ' s pitching and Bob Wulff ' s home run with two on. South Bend came to Valparaiso, but because of rain they could not play. For the last game Valparaiso played Roosevelt at Valparaiso. Roosevelt, behind Matulise ' s five hit pitching, hammered out a 9-1 victory over the green and white Vikings. The boys who graduated from the team are Robert Wulff, Campbell Holt, Roland Sheets, and Lloyd Pinkerton. The games lost were to Washington of East Chicago once 8-2, and again 7-4, Whiting 14-8, Hammond Tech 4-3, and Roosevelt 9-0. Coach Wiggins examines Henson who has just been spiked.

For several years track was discontinued in Valparaiso High School, but was revived in 1937. Because it takes several years to develope a team, the Valpo boys did not make such a creditable showing for themselves, winning only one meet out of six. The " Thinlies " dropped their first meet to Portage losing by one point, the score be- ing 48-49. The mainstay in the Valpo attack was Lee Soltz who garnered eleven points at this meet. The Valpo crew then won their next meet with Chesterton 82-51 at Val- paraiso. Then the Hobart " Brickies " came to Valpo and defeated the " Thinlies " to a score of 80-53. In this meet Valpo won in the low hurdles, high hurdles, 880-yard run, shot- put, and the mile relay. On May the 4th the team traveled to Michigan City to compete in a Tri-Meet with North Judson and Michigan City. Valpo ' s onlj? wins were in the shot- put and the relay team. The team then traveled to South Bend for the Conference meet and Jack Henry won a point in the 440; likewise in the sectional at Gary, Jack Niksch got one point in the shot put. In their last start the Vikings were defeated by Washington 66 --49 ' -. McCann and Dodd were the only boys affected by graduation. Verne McCann just clear- ing the bar. Charles Suesse takes the low hurdles in his stride. 58 Bob Stoner in action • GOLFERS ENTER MEETS • ® • The 1938 Valparaiso High School mashie crew, coached by Mr. William Kendall, was hit hard by graduation in 1937; however, they started off on the right foot by trimming La- Porte 9 2-2 ' -. In the next two starts they did not do so well, and were defeated by Michigan City and then trimmed at LaPorte 9 ' l ' -2 ' -. When they started their conference meets, however, they beat Hammond 9-3; but they dropped their next meet to Wash- ington at South Bend to the tune of 8-4. Val- paraiso ' s match with Hammond Tech on Mon- day, May 9, was called off because of rain. On the following Monday, Valparaiso dropped a close decision to Riley of South Bend. In the conference tourney on Saturday, May 14, at LaPorte, Valparaiso ended sixth. The tournament victors were Riley of South Bend. Sam Bohlin of Michigan City was low with a 76. The lowest on our team was Dougall with an 89. Hammond defeated Valpo 7 ' j- 4Vi on May 17. For the second time of the season, Riley of South Bend conquered the Viking squad. As a successful end to the schedule, Valparaiso defeated Central of South Bend. Valparaiso ' s main stays were James Mahoney, Bill Dougall, Bob Stoner, and Paul Biggart. The Vikings lost the majority of their meets, due to an inexperienced crew; how- ever, with all of these boys back in 1939, they have gained much experience. Some of the boys out for golf in 1939 were Tom Benton, Paul Biggart, Melvin Porter, William Thiel, Charles Sink, Paul Christopher, Jack Kuhn, Bob Stoner, and Bill Dougall.

She has tried to impress upon the girls the fact that athletics should give them something that will extend beyond the mere four years in high school. The physical education director has emphasized the impor- tance of individual games — games that can be played during the hours of recreation which will occur in later years. The aim of the participants in girls ' athletics is not to be a man- nish, muscular person excelling in sports. Their goal, instead, is to learn and practice sportsmanship, which is always a factor in athletic contests, and yet retain the attributes which belong to every woman. The May Festival, which is held each year to raise funds for equipment to be used in the physical education department, is under the direction of Miss Harrison. Entailing a great deal of work, these successful events give an opportunity to the high school students to receive training of a different type necessary in a well-rounded phys- ical education course. During her two years as instructor in Valparaiso High School, Miss Harrison has continued the practice of holiday social dancing classes for the benefit of those who wish to start or improve their dancing for special school functions. Elsie Harrison Girls ' Athletic Director Charlotte Cavell Winner of Senior Cup • CHARLOTTE CAVELL WINS CUP • • Each year the G. A. A. awards to the most outstanding senior girl in the organization, a loving cup. Sportsman- ship, athletic ability, and leadership are taken into consideration. Charlotte Ca- vell was the one to receive the honor last year. She was a member of the G. A. A. board in her junior year, having charge of soccer. She showed her ability early in her high school career, and as a climax to her steadily rising skill and ability, she was elected president of the G. A. A. in her senior year. The loving cup, which now bears her name and the date, also bears the names of the winners of the cup since 1932. The loving cup serves as an incentive to all the girls in the association to work their hardest, and is looked up to as a goal. Establishing a new custom this year, the winner of the cup henceforth will receive a sterling pin with the date engraved on it in addition to the cup. The cup, how- ever, remains the property of the school. G. A. A. BOARD Row 1 Bottom: Miss Harrison— sponsor. Blanche Belaschky, Ruth Wark, Iva Mae Barkey. Nena Winder, Gladys Makovsky.

A. elect from their number a board consisting of girls outstanding in ability and sportsman- ship. The board has charge of the activities of the G. A. A., acting as a council. The board sees that the constitution is adhered to, and in general forms the backbone of the asso- ciation. This year it consisted of Nena Winder, president; Iva Mae Berkey, vice-president; Ruth Wark, secretary; and Blance Belaschky, treasurer. In charge of the various sports were Helen Garrison, baseball; Marjorie Warner, soccer; Anne Wharton, basketball; Eileen Hurley, volleyball; Marcele Arndt, tumbling; Marion Scoville and Rosemary Claussen, noon-day league; Martha Crisman, track; Mary Thiesen, archery; Mildred Warner, mis- cellaneous sports; Ann Walsh, equipment; and Carrie Shupe, scrapbook chairman. Despite the honor of a position on the board, there is a great deal of work attached to it. More time is put into each individual sport than is realized. Points must be kept ac- curately, and as a whole, the girls understand that mistakes are not altogether to be avoided. The board enjoys the complete co-operation of the G. A. A. which respects its authority. The board stimulates interest in the individual sport and is a successful way of keep- ing the organization running smoothly. It solves both major and minor difficulties, act- ing as spokesman for the entire enrollment. Their judgment is accepted because of the trustworthiness of one of the most successful boards in the history of the G. A. A. 61 FRESHMAN G. A. A. Lois Dalke, Phyllis Crisman.

The organ- ization has been under the sponsorship of Miss Elsie Harrison for the past two years. This group has 148 members, active and associate inclusive. Associate members are those who give intentions of participating in sports, and active members are those who have fifty points or over and participate regularlJ The G. A. A. offers a variety of sports, one of which is sure to interest every girl in the organization. The G. A. A. joined the National Amateur Athletic Federation two years ago, and in return for dues, receives monthly publications that give suggestions for improving the organization. Awards are given to participants of sports and those rendering special service. Class numerals are given to any girl earning 250 points; 600 points entitles her to a monogram; 1,500 points, a sweater, and for each additional 500 points, a chevron. The G. A. A. does not engage in participation with other schools, but keeps its tourn- aments in the school and does not enter into extensive competition. This year, for the first time in years, the G. A. A. will sponsor a play day at home. We have been the guests of several high schools, and this is our first chance to reciprocate. Play days are the only means this organization has of testing the skill of its members with that of other schools, but it is not competitive to any great extent, tent. Dues are collected yearly by which the G. A. A. sponsors a soccer picnic and a hike or party. Summing up the G. A. A., it is seen that it is a wholesome, inspiring organiza- tion worthy of the place it holds in the school. 62 Valeria Price and Betty Jean Ziegel play healthball during thie noon hour. Blanche Belaschlvy knocks them down. Betty Stanton matches Valeria Price in a game of deck tennis. Betty Stanton proves she made a " ringer. " • NOONDAY SPORTS FOR GIRLS • • • Noonday league is the only organization in the school which makes it possible for the township members of the G. A. A. to participate in sports. As they are unable to enter into after school activities, the league is the only manner in which they may earn their sweater points. Although the greater number of girls who participate in the noonday league are the township girls, there is a large number of the active members of the G. A. A. that enter every sport. The league is fortunate in having the excellent equipment they have. Every year something new or different has been added, until now the department is complete. Marion Scoville and Rosemary Claussen are the chairmen of noonday league this year, and they find it rather difficult to carry on. Since the changing of the schedule no time has been allowed for noonday league, and the activities have been stopped entirely for the time being. However, before the change, the sports ran on their regular schedule. The winner of the horseshoe tournament was Blanche Belaschky, and Betty Jean Ziegel was runner-up. Along with the horseshoe tournament, a health ball tournament was played. Marjorie Warner was the winner and Nena Winder the runner-up. A doubles horseshoe tournament was planned, but was cut short by the change of schedule. However, working between times, it was finished with Betty Jean Ziegel and Nena Winder as winners and Marion Scoville and Rosemary Claus- sen as runners-up. The noonday league has been unable to operate to its capacity, as bad- minton, bowling, and others have not been played for lack of time. Despite the difficulty of arranging the time for the tournament, ping-pong champions were finally determined. The single ' s tournament ended with Doris Lain, winner, and Anne Wharton, runner-up. The winners of the doubles were Doris Lain and Rita Schoof with Francis White and Rosemary Claussen runners-up. This year, for the first time, a shuffleboard tournament was played. The elimination contest was held during the bas- ketball season. LaVergne Niequist was victorious over Valeria Price, runner-up. 63 Marion Scoville downed by Ar- lene Benson, Martha Wharton, and Marillynn Heap, who are de- termined to keep the ball rolling. • SOCCER OPENS FALL SPORTS • • ® The girls ' sport season opened this fall with the ever-popular soccer under the leadership of Marjorie Warner. One hundred and nine eager enthusiasts came out to participate in a scheduled round-robin tournament of thirty- six games. Twenty-five points are given to all members on the winning team and fif- teen points are given to members of the runner-up. At the end of the contest, teams eight and nine were tied. Immediately following, class teams were picked to determine the class champion. The class teams were as follows; Seniors: Anne Wharton, Eileen Hurley, Jane Varner, Marjorie Warner, Helen Garrison, Ruby Spencer, Mildred Warner, Rose- mary Wertman, Nena Winder, Betty Jean Zeigel, Ruth Wark, Rose Mary LaBrecque; Juni- ors: Martha Crisman, Nancy Howard, Gladys Makovsky, Marcele Arndt. Ann Walsh, Jean Stinchfield, Kate Field, Eileen Sterbenz, Dorothy Ragsdale, Louise Ahlgrim, Alice Davis, Marjorie Broviak, Vivian McCann, Glaydis Basinger; Sophomores: Marion Scoville, Mary Green, Janet Shauer, Patricia Wolf, Rita Schoof, Arlene Benson, Rosemary Claussen, Hilde Buck, Aurelia Tucinsky, Mary Thiesen, Betty Ann Foxworthy, Ruth Barkley; Fresh- men: Mary Lou Peck, LaVergne Niequist, Flora Cox, Jeanne Claudon, Kathleen Witner, Cornelia Powell, Miriam Brown, Doris Lain, Kathleen Nolan, Rosemary Fulton, Martha Wharton, Marion Crosby, Martha Berry. In the preliminary games, the sophomores de- feated the freshmen by a score of 2-0. The juniors were defeated by the seniors 4-2. In the final contest, the seniors were downed by the sophomores with a score of 1-0. Instead of following the usual custom and having a soccer picnic to close the season, a picnic was held on the school grounds. A potluck supper was followed by group games. Then a treasure hunt was staged in which parties of ten went searching for the next clue. The treasure was a bushel of apples by the bonfire, built in the baseball pit. Following the search, entertainment was forthcoming in the form of songs and stories. 64 Bernice Rumbaugh, Mary Green, Isabel Fabing, and Carrie Shupe prevent the ball from coming down. • VOLLEYBALL FIRST INDOOR SPORT • • • Volleyball, the first indoor sport of the season, drew one hundred and two people to participate. Eileen Hurley had charge of the scheduled round-robin tournament. Two series of games were played. In the first series team five was the winner. Members of this victorious team were Ardis Otis, Iva Mae Berkey, Eileen Sterbenz, Ruby Spencer, Kathleen Witner, Marillynn Heap, Rosemary Claussen, Martha Crisman, Mary Helen Breen, and Margaret Snow. Team five also held the title of winner in the second series of thirty-six games. Seventy-tv o games were played in all. Team eight held a close runner up to team five. The captains of the nine teams participating were Alice Davis, Janet Shauer, Valeria Price, Annadel Maxwell, Ruby Spencer, Dorothy Graves, Sarah Derman, Nancy Howard, and Evelyn Anderson re- spectively. Along with the regular tournament an independent contest took place be- tween gang teams. The teams organized were Polygons, Satellites, Yo Yos, Jitterbug, Swingeroos, and Sigma Foos. The eliminations method finally left only the Polygons and Satellites, who fought to a hard finish with the Satellites coming out on top. Class teams were then chosen, and consisted of the following: Senior: Betty Stanton, Marjorie Warner, Helen Garrison, Edith Erea, Eileen Hurley, Annadel Maxwell, Ardis Otis, Iva Mae Berkey, Ruby Spencer, Anne Wharton, Blanche Belaschky, Nena Winder; Junior: Evelyn Anderson, Eileen Sterbenz, Martha Crisman, Ann Walsh, Dorothy Graves, Nancy Howard, Jean Stinchfield, Gladys Makovsky, Glaydis Basinger, Marcele Arndt; Sophomore: Rita Schoof, Arlene Benson, Elaine Magid, Mary Thiesen, Janet Shauer, Louise Ahlgrim, Rose- mary Claussen, Hilde Buck, Margaret Snow, Marie Morthland, Frances Erea, Lou Jane Wertman, Elizabeth Foxworthy, Marion Scoville; Freshman: Lillian Wilson, Betty Lou Claudon, Joan Whipple, Miriam Brown, Martha Wharton, Jeanne Claudon, Doris Lain, Lavergne Niequist, Cornelia Powell, Flora Edith Cox, Mary Lou Peck, Frances Erea. 65 Pat Wolfe is closely guarded by Betty Jean Bratton. 9 BASKETBALL • • • Basketball, the main sport of the G. A. A., is awaited every year by the members of the club with impatience. Ninety girls reported for the sport this year in the usual high spirited manner. After a few trial games for skill, the girls were divided into A and B teams. After being placed on a team, there is always a pos- sibility of being promoted or demoted as a consequence of developed skill or laxness. The A and B teams were divided into eight teams each. The captains of the A teams were Dorothy Graves, Eileen Sterbenz, LuJane Wertman, Mildred Warner, Peggy French, Edith Erea, Iva Mae Berkey and Rosemary Wertman; and the captains of the B teams were Rosemary Labrecque, Carolyn Lindsey, Ardis Otis, Jeanne Claudon, Isabel Fabing, Frances White, Joan Whipple. Delia Klein. A. round robin tournament was played in which each team played every other team. Team 4 finished as winner of the A tournament, with teams 2 and 5 runners-up. Team 8 won the B round robin and teams 1 and 5 were tied for second. Following these tour- naments, class teams were picked by Miss Harrison and Anne Wharton, basketball chair- man. The four teams are paired by means of drawing opponents. Elimination tourna- ments secure the winner of the basketball season. To close the season, annually a basketball banquet is held. Following the meal, awards are given to girls. Only numerals and monograms are given as the sweaters are awarded on honor day at the end of school. After all the business is transacted, the re- mainder of the evening is filled with games and entertainment in the form of music, dances, and skits. Those who are seniors look back upon basketball as one of their most enjoyable high- school athletic activities, and the underclassmen look forward with greater expectancy to the vears to come. 66 Ramona Goin calls Shirley Peter- son out as she is tagged by Nancy Howard. Frances Erea catches a high fly. • BASEBALL • • • Though generally considered a mi- nor sport in most schools, baseball is classified in the upper bracket of sports. The department was greatly strengthened by the purchase of new bases, bats, and rubber covered balls. Last spring, under the leadership of Marjorie Warner, it drew 64 participants. Due to bad weather, baseball was re- stricted to a limit of four nights. Eight teams were made up, and were named after big league teams. A round robin tournament was played, and four teams tied for first place. These teams were captained by Blanche Belaschky, Rose- mary Bradney, Helen Garrison, and Mary Muster. Class teams were chosen as follows: Senior, Beryl Ann Brownell, Charlotte Cavell, Mary Cleveland, Mariangeneen Helvie, Virginia Sanz, Martha Joyce Smith; Junior, Blanche Be- laschky, Iva Mae Berkey, Edith Erea, Helen Garrison, Eileen Hurley, Betty Keck, Betty Stanton, Ruth Wark, Rosemary Wertman, Nena Winder, Betty Jean Zeigel; Sophomore, Marcele Arndt, Glaydis Basinger, Rosemarj BradneJ Mar- tha Crisman, Alice Davis, Nancy Howard, Delia Klein, Gladys Makovsky, Shirley Peterson, Ann Walsh; Freshman, Louise Ahlgrim, Rosemary Claussen, Frances Erea, Josephine Mayer, Marie Morthland, Mary Lou Peck, Rita Schoof, Marion Scoville, Janet Shauer. In the preliminaries, the freshmen defeated the seniors, and the juniors defeated the sophomores. In the finals, the juniors were soundly trounced by a strong team of freshman players. Last year was the first time for years, that the freshman class team was the victor. Despite all difficulties, baseball was carried through to a finish, and on the whole was a very successful season. This year baseball was under the leadership of Helen Garrison, baseball chairman. Over seventy-five eager en- thusiasts joined in a round-robin tournament, which was im- mediately followed by the playing off of the class tourna- ment. All social activities were dropped because of the lack of time because of the new system. 67 Betty Nolan takes aim. • MINOR SPORTS PROGRAM • • • G A. A. also offers a wide variety of minor activities to fill in the school year. These minor sports are not as strenuous as the major sports and offer a form of healthful exercise to those restricted from the more active sports. The minor sports are archery, tumbling, and track, where individual competition is stressed. The archery season, under the direction of Mary Thiesen was unusually exciting this year. In the tournament the girls were allowed to stand thirty-two and fifty paces, and at the end of the contest, Mary Thiesen, Carrie Shupe, and Frances White were tied up. Eighteen arrows were shot by each girl to determine the winner and runner- up. Mary Thiesen was the victor with a score of forty-six, while Carrie came in second with a score of thirty-two. Tumbling, under Marcele Arndt, acquired thirty participants. All the girls were placed on the A team, B team or no team at all. To make the A team, the girl was re- quired to pass the eighteen assigned stunts and one original. If all but three were mas- tered, the girl was a member of the B team. The remaining girls were not placed on any team at all. Track, under the supervision of Martha Crisman had a successful season and aided in the proficiency of the girls in running, shot-put, and high jumping. Dorothy Rickman exercises her mus- cles in a shot-put. Charlotte C a v e 1 1 just cleared the bar in a high jump. Gladys Makovsky tries to break rec- ord in basketball throw.
