W. PHILLIPS Superintendent The blueprints are drawn by the members of the Board of Education, who are appoint- ed by the city council. At present the board is composed of Mr. Lynnet Casbon, presi- dent, Mr. Marvin C, Cain, treasurer, and Mr. Homer M. lessee, secretary. Mr. Cain is completing his fifth year, Mr. Casbon, who filled the term of the late Dr. Gerald H. Stoner, is completing his first year, and Mr. lessee, formerly principal of the high school, Architects Who Plan G. W. PHILLIPS Superintendent DePauw University, AB. Indiana University, M.S. is the newest member of the board. After the blueprints have been drawn, the members select the engineers and architects who build the finished building. They meet with the chief architect, Mr. G. W. Phillips, superintendent, on the second Tuesday of each month and draw plans for the future. The school has a good structure as well as a firm foundation due to the careful plan- ning ot these men. Board of Education LYNNET CASBON MARVIN C. CAIN I-IOMER M.

The school year of i944-45 finds Valparai- so I-ligh School the proud possessor of two new chief executives Mr. S. M. Woodruff as principal and Mr. G. W. Phillips as super- intendent. These two men, with the aid of their secretaries, Mrs. Charlotte Barkley and Mrs. Grace Rickard, respectively, have to- gether laid out the plans for their first year in our school system and have helped to make this an unusually successful year. S. M. WOODRUFF Principal Among the most important of the new practices which have been developed dur- ing the past few months are the Student Council, which replaces the Recreation Council, a cafeteria providing noon lunches, and the election of a homecoming queen. Several clubs have been dropped because of the morning gym classes and the lack of teachers who have had time to serve as sponsors, Office Secretaries MRS.

Money is raised for financing this project by selling suhscriptions and ad- vertisements to local businesses. All the soliciting and collecting is done by the stall. For many years the Valpost has received a lirst class rating from the Na- tional Scholastic Press Association, and a number ot ineinbers in the past have qualified for the International Quill and Scroll.

Girl Reserves Drop Point System The Girl Reserves is the only service club tor girls in the school. Formerly the girls in this club earned points by rendering services, but since the war this point system has been discontinued for the duration, However, the girls are kept active by giving an annual Hi-Y and GR. welcome to all new students, writing Christ- mas letters as a group to service men, and planning the "V" Boom. The girls also at- tend a local church as a body twice a year with their sponsors, Miss Clare McGillicuddy, Miss Helen Miller, and Miss Audrey Shauer. Because Commando classes are conduct- ed in the morning, the girls meet on every other Monday at tour o'clock instead ot the former assembly period. The new members are inducted in a tormal candlelight service in February, when the purpose and ideals of the club are explained, and the president lights the candle oi each new member. Representatives of the club attend the an- nual district conierence where they get ace auainted with other clubs and bring back new ideas to the school. They also collected clothing tor a relief project.

Stage Artists Entertain at Assemblies Providing much of the amusing entertainment for the mornina asso wiblies are the 'Toollight Masaueradersw with Mr. B. L. Conkling as the directing sponsor. For the tirst time in many years there is a daily dramalics class which grants a regular school credit, in addition to the dramatics club. Most of the students belongs ing to the class spend extra time with dramatics by joining the club also. These two organizations, working together, have presented many more plays before the student body than the usual three performances produced in former years. Not only does this group present plays but it also studies posture, makefup, voice, stage selling, and other fundamentals ol drarnatics. The members makeup the casts ol plays and operetlas given by the high school and the junior high. Because of commando I training in the morning, many hours of play prac- tice have had to be held in the early morning, alter school, and in the evening, However, this fact has had very little effect on the membership of the club, for many students have shown their interest in dra- matics. Each year lhe club holds a party lor the club members and their friends, and also gives awards on award day to the out- standing members. l.

CURTIS RATHBURN COACH Top rowi Donald Pierce, Row 2: lohn Kelly, Loren Vilcings Continue Three Major Sports Annually football inaugurates the seasons athletic program. Football, basketball, and track continue, this year, to be the only maior sports in which the Green and White participate. For the first time in several years, Valparaiso had entries in the fall cross country meets. There were only a few boys on the team, and although they won no meets, they showed much determina- tion and fortitude in running the tough twofmile course against superior opposition. In the past it had been customary for Valparaiso to organize teams for baseball and golf, but due to wartime conditions, active participation in these sports has been postponed. Football practice started two weeks before school, as usual, in preparation for the initial game during the first week of school. The season, which lasted till the end of October, had an exceptionally good outlook, with twelve of last years varsity back. The fact that five men from last year's varsity were back for basketball also pointed to a good '44 season, The Viking quintet, with this start, were looking forward to avenging the eleven setf backs they suffered during last years eighteen games. The 'flfl schedule was the same as that of 313. Football Varsity Richard lsenberg, Frank Lightcap, lames lohnson, Donald Soliday, Barney Woycik. Walsh, Walter Brownell, lohn Sievers, Robert Smith. Bottom: Herbert Pintzke, Paul Wheeler. V. H. S. Gridders Earn Five Wins The Viking Gridders of 1944 courageously pounded their way to the most successful season since l939. The Green and White played nine games during the year, five of which were played on foreign fields. The season ended with five wins and four losses. This successful season was a great come- back after last year's, in which the eleven won only one game, that being over Lowell High School, which incidentally, returned this year to defeat the Vikings in their next to last game of the season. The '44 schedule was the same as the pre- vious year's, with the exception of one game with Plymouth, which was added to rnake a nine game card. Next year the gridders from Valparaiso will venture into the tough competition of the Northern Indiana High School Athletic Association. The '45 schedule will include battles with the toughest teams in Gary as well as several games with teams from the Hammond-East Chicago vicinity. The Vik- ings will be handicapped due to the gradua- tion of eight of the '44 varsity, but with many hopeful prospects from the reserve squads the outlook for a favorable season in '45 is encouraging. 1944 FOOTBALL SCHEDULE Crown Point - - There Ve- 6 O4 U Hobart - - There V--13 O Griffith - - A Here Vs-A-l9 O- O Plymouth - There V4 6 O Michigan City - - There V- 6 O-26 Lowell - - There V- O O Ren selaer - - Here V-21 O- U Hobart - - Here Vfl2 O LaPorte - - - Here Ve 6 O-24 Upper left: Coach Rathburn, Upper righti The football squad.

Blueprint of cagers' Season That Valparaiso High School basketball team of 1944-'45 played ball Has good as the league," is witnessed by their record of nine wins and an equal number of losses in the tough Calumet Region cage schedule for the regular season. They had an additional loss tacked on the list, however, by the sec- tional-winning Emerson tive in the first game of the sectional tourney. The Green and White started the season as if they were playing for keeps this year, defeating the Portage Indians, 4U-33, and the Crown Point Bulldogs by a ten-point margin. ln the third game Valpo succumbed to a strong Michigan City five by a close one-point advantage. The next week the Vikings were on the long end of a game decided by one point, defeating the Hain mond Clark quintet, 35-34, in a Htypical Hoosier" encounter, Washington East Chicago defeated the cagers, 39-32, and on December 15, Tolles- ton was a Valpo victim. Roosevelt East Chi- cago, LaPorte, Hammond, and Horace Mann outplayed the Vikings in rapid succession, and then Whiting became Valpo's fifth sea- son win, 45-4l. Emerson and Lew Wallace gave successive defeats to Coach Rathburns cagers and then Valpo defeated Hammond Tech and Eroeble. LaPorte won, 43-39, in a thriller at Boucher Gymnasium, and the Valpo five finished the season with wins over Hobart and Tolleston of Gary. The B team won five and lost nine games.

An early winter cancelled the sophomore- senior tinals, thus cutting short the season, Under the leadership of Buth Mcliim, the club then had an indoor session of volleye ball, which lasted from December until Feb- ruary. King Basketball, conducted this year by Marge Crosby, still reigns supreme, tor the Captain of the winning class team is present- ed with the coveted basketball cup.

Holds Annual Banquet The OPA. came close to canceling the G.A.A. banquet for l94b, but the alert minds of the girls rescued the plans. To help pay for the banquet, an event looked forward to all year, the girls staged a style show in the lunior l-ligh gym on March l6. Four dress shops in Valparaiso were represented: Mildred Lanes, Hardings, Meyers, and Lo- wenstines. The members of the club did the planning and modeling, the shop classes built a special ramp for the models, and lune Billings furnished the music. The l941l GAA. banquet in honor of bas- ketball was held in the Christian Church, where the girls sat at gaily decorated tables according to their classes. As guest speaker, Beryl Ann Brownell, an alumna of Valparaiso, told of her trip to the WAC training station in Des Moines, where she was sent by the Gary Post Tribune, Faculty women, wives of the faculty, and G.AA. girls of former years were invited. Among those who attended were the famous Snodgrass sisters, Harriet Arnold, Mary No- lan, and Frances McGillicuddy, who pre' sented one of their original and unrehearsed skits. All too soon the program was over, the food slightly digested, and the G.A.A. ban- quet for '44 was at an end. Amazons of the Future The GA A board is shown at the upper left.

Noonday League Chief Minor Sport Noonday league this year was under the direction ot Marian and l-lelen Miller. First on their schedule were horseshoe and liealthball The champs for these were Gwen Kinne and Martha Shirlc. Other sports on the list were badminton, pingpong, and shuf- lleboard. Noonday league is held at l2:3U on Wednesday noons. 'l'his is a chance for girls who must take a bus home right aiter school to participate in sorne sport of G.A.A. About twenty girls came out tor each sport as usual. Archery and tumbling, both minor sports, were held in the spring. Archery was poste poned from fall to spring due to bad weathf er conditions. The chairman of archery was Gwen Kinne, and the chairman of tumbling was lrma llenrichs. Minor sports are not to be overlooked or thought ot as unimportant. They are given this name because not as many girls are ine terested in these sports as in the major sports. Minor sports seem to require a special in- terest as well as a special skill. Although not as much time is devoted to them, and not as many students participate, the equip- ment, instruction, and opportunity is ottered to all. The year ot 1945 is giving another tirst to Valparaiso High School. On April 20 the physical education classes under the direcf tion ot Mrs. Mary lo Rogers, grade school and girls gym instructor, took part in a demonstration presented in Boucher Gym- nasium, The purpose oi the demonstration was to give parents and friends an oppore tunity to see the work carried on in the va- rious departments ot the school. The departments represented were the art, music, sewing, and physical education de- partments. The schools participating were Columbia, Central, Banta, lunior High, and Senior High.
