Contents Faculty Classes Activities Sports „ - - -r5TiV?m« ' P ( ?? FACULTY Where Life is Richer Presenting the " personnel behind the scenes " whose help and guidance aided the " ' 49ers " in achieving their respective goals. Through their daily untiring efforts, plus numerous outside preparations, they have succeeded in adapting the students for future years. Superintendent Interpreting the school ' s needs to the community is one of the main duties of G. Warren Phillips, superintendent of the Valparaiso public schools. A brief summary of his other services might include the regulating of finances of the entire school system, overseeing of all buildings and grounds, and acting as a connecting link be- tween the schools and the city. Superintendent Phillips has been head " goldsmith " for five years, making many beneficial improve- ments in the system each year. Mr, Phillips received his A. B. degree from DePauv; ' University and his M. S. from Indiana Uni- versity. Principal Upholding the traditions of the school, acting as chief disciplina- rian, and making and adjusting programs and schedules for the " apprentices " are responsibilities that rest on the shoulders of Mr. King Telle, principal of Valparaiso High School. With nev problems constantly arising, Mr. Telle is kept busy in our ever-changing world. The newer of the two offi- cials, he has served as principal for three years, showing a great deal of enthusiasm and zest in his work. Mr. Telle received his A. B. de- gree from Hanover College and his M. S. from Indiana University. Secretaries Answering telephone calls is but a minor item in the daily routine of Grace Rick- ard and Irene Thiel, secreta- ries for Mr. Phillips and Mr. Telle respectively. Managing correspondence, keeping files, and greeting the students with a cheerful smile under any circumstances are a few of the numerous services they execute with calm efficiency. Irene Thiel is a novice in her field while Grace Rickard has served the school faithfully for many years. SCHOOL BOARD Below is pictured the Board of Education for the Valparaiso City Schools. The members are appointed for a three-year term by the city council, rotating the office of president, treasurer, and secretary each year. The most recent appointment be- comes secretary. In this manner there are always at least two members with past experience. By appointing the members to a second term, they are able to better serve the community through additional experience, gained in their first term. As this procedure is often followed, the school system has always had able leadership. Mr. Casbon, president, is now completing his second term. The other members of the board are Mr. Burns and Mr. Hathaway, both serving new terms. ORVAL R. BURNS Treasurer LYNNET M, CASBON President WALTER H.

By the time they are graduating seniors, most of them have acquired enduring friendships and great riches in knowledge, not measurable in dollars and cents. 13 WARREN ABLE BETTY MAE AIGNER JACK BAILEY BETTIE BARBOUL HAROLD BARKLEY BERNARD BARNES HAROLD BARTHOLOMEW ABLE, WARREN Track 1, 2, 3, 4; Cross Country 2, 3, 4; Hi-Y 3, 4; Science Club 4; Spanish Club 2, 3; Varsity Club 2, 3, 4; Noon- day League 2, 3, 4.

SENIORS Progress was the keynote in the ' 49 graduating senior class history. What a difference can be observed along all lines between the freshman class of ' 46 and the same group with their high school work now com- pleted. For the most part they have not only gained knowledge available in books, but also a deeper outlook of life brought on by numerous experi- ences never to be forgotten. School dances, proms, formals, athletic games, and other extra-curricular activities, all played a part in enriching our school days beyond the actual classroom procedure. In the fall of ' 48, the following students were elected to represent the class in their last year in V.H.S. The officers chosen were as follows: Ken- neth Dobbins, president; Jack Bailey, vice-president; Joyce Vietzke, secre- tary; and Mary Griffin, treasurer. 14 BAUER, JIM Noonday League 1.

H. S. " Let there be a place for everyone " stands out as a beckoning for students to find the activity for which they might be best suited. 31 VALENIAN The complete activities of school life throughout the year are re- corded in the VALENIAN, which is published each year by a group of graduating seniors. This year the book has been sponsored by Mr. Roger Stewart, a newcomer to the faculty of V. H. S The staff and photographer have been working since the first days of school, planning and col- lecting the material for the VA- LENIAN. The expense of the publication has been met in various ways. The profit made by senior girls selling candy at the school candy store and at games has been do- nated for the book, and an assess- ment has been levied against each club m proportion to the size of its layout. The VALENIAN has been awarded the A 11- America Honor Rating three times in its history and has also won numerous other high ratings awarded each year by the National Scholastic Press Association.

H. S. is published bi- weekly in the Valpost. The paper is edited by the Journalism II class under the sponsorship of Mrs. Em- ma R. Poor. This group, which was prepared, for this type of work in a Journalism I class, does all the writing, proofreading, copy read- ing, sorting, and mailing of the paper. The Valpost is financed by sell- ing advertisements to local busi- ness men and selling subscrip- tions. All collecting is done by the staff. The Valpost nas won numerous first-class honor ratings awarded by the National Scholastic Press Association.

Bottom, right: Jack Thomas, Vernon Smith, Frank Highly, David Thomas, James Hudgins singing at Father-Son Banquet. Clean scholarship and clean sportsmanship are typical mottos of the Hi-Y, who, under the direction of Mr. Ralph Schenck and Mr. Alfred Henkel, strive to attain these ideals. As a junior branch of the Y. M. C. A., they work closely with this organiza- tion in their various efforts. The Hi-Y chapter in V. H. S. is one of the oldest in the state. Originally a boy be- came a Hi-Y member by accepting an invitation to join. This policy has been changed. Anyone who wishes to join the club makes his intention know n by re- questing that he be admitted. Much more important than the membership policy change is the growth of the club. When it was first organized, it had 35 enrolled; and today this membership has increased to 69 full-time workers. The Hi-Y performs many useful services around V. H. S. At the beginning of each semester, they operate the used-book store. They sell Hi-Y pencils and operate check rooms at special dances. Each year the club awards a courtesy award to the 34 Left: Mr. Schenck, sponsor, and Mrs. Schenck serving at Father-Son Banquet. Right Top: Vernon Smith, president, questioning John Beach prior to his induction. Right Bottom: John Beach being formally accepted into the Hi-Y. student whom the faculty selects. The entire club attends church in a body three times a year, going to a different one each time. In ad dition to its helpful services, the Hi-Y also sponsors several social functions. At the opening of the school year, they cooperate with their sister club, the Y-Teens, in the initiation party for the incoming freshmen. They sponsor a Hi-Y Best Girl Par- ty, which is attended by Hi-Y members and their best ladies. Each year the club enjoys its Father and Son Banquet, at which time the mem- bers and their fathers become acquainted. At a special convocation last semester, Mr. Schenck received a Hi-Y pin set with pearls from the State Hi-Y Board. The award was made in recognition of Mr. Schenck ' s twenty years of faithful Hi-Y service. Our local Hi-Y sent tv o delegates to the National Hi-Y Conference. This con- vention was held last summer in Oxford, Ohio. The purpose of this conference was to acquaint all the Hi-Y ' s throughout the country with the problems of today. The speakers explained ways in which the Hi-Y can help meet these problems. 35 Y-TEENS The Y-Teens, or Girl Reserves as they were formerly called, have been a part of our high school organization since 1929. Through all these years, the Y-Teens have continued their good v ork. The club, sponsored by Miss Audrey Shauer, attends church in a body every year and encourages regular church attendance. In their capacity as a service club, they perform many kind and useful services for everyone in the school and in the city.. Each year the club sells TB Seals at booths in downtown stores. At various times they deliver baskets of food to deserving families.

Their chief work is helping in the cafeteria by serving food and washing dishes. These duties are carried out by a different group of six girls each week. For this service they are paid $10 each week by the School Lunch Program. Not all Y-Teen functions are such hard labor. Throughout the year they have three very important social activities. The first of these is the Freshman Initiation Party, which they sponsor in cooperation with the Hi-Y. The Turnabout Trot is an- other important social affair wherein the girls become the ones who ask for dates and escort their boys to and from the dance. The V-Room is the largest of the club ' s func- tions. It is held early in the spring at the Junior High School. The dance is semi-for- mal, and music is provided by a band. There is special entertainment provided by a floor show.

BOOSTER CLUB " Everything for the team, " has been the motto of the Booster Club since its or- ganization in September, 1946. To achieve this end, the club has strived to promote team, spirit and good sports- manship throughout the school and the city under the guidance of Mr. Alfred Hen- kel, Mr. Roger Stewart, and Miss Lillian Elmore. A Booster Club bus goes to every out-of-town game whenever it is possible. In this way the club provides convenient and reasonable transportation to all club members. They also encourage others to follow the team and to always display the qualities of true sportsmanship when attending these games. When the teams play at home, Booster Club members attend all these games, too, and lead the cheering section in the yells. The club also contributes to the school ' s social life. Each year they sponsor the Kick-Off Dance, which is held after the first football game of the year. Throughout the school year, they sponsor several dances held after basketball and football games. At times they have sold Viking pins and Booster hats to loyal boosters in the school. ■ . . 38 THE LIBRARY CLUB FUTURE TEACHERS CLUB This year a group of students, realiz- ing their lack of knowledge of the library and the literary world in general, con- ferred with Miss Virginia Smiley, the li- brarian, concerning their problem. The new Library Club was Miss Smiley ' s an- swer to their problem. In keeping with the reasons for the club ' s organization, the members have set forth as the purpose of the club to develop library interest and to make the library inviting to all their fellow stu- dents in the high school. The club has sixteen members. This year they sponsored no social activities; but after it is completely organized, this, too, will be a part of the Library Club. One way in which the problem of the lack of teachers has been met is the for- mation of the Future Teachers of Ameri- ca. The chapter in our school was or- ganized in September, 1948, by Miss Audrey Shauer. The purpose of the club is to help future teachers to learn facts about and opportunities of teaching everywhere, to develop qualities essen- tial to a good teacher, and to develop student leadership. The chapter works closely with the National Education As- sociation. The organization, as a whole, helps to improve the quality of the peo- ple who take up teaching as a career.

Hard work and more hard work may well be the theme of the Dramatics Club. The group, organized by and under the sponsorship of Mr. Burton Conkling, is en- gaed in some activity all the time. The club was organized to help those persons interested in the dramatic life to learn more about its fundamentals. In these studies, the members become acquaint- ed with some of the necessary fundamentals of acting, costuming, make-up, and lighting. Another part of this work is presenting readings and pantomimes, which help to accomplish necessary body actions and voice control. All this knowledge is then put to use in the presentation of plays. The club makes all arrangements and does all its own work m preparing for the presentation of the plays. The members make their own scenery; members make up the cost; and they set their own stage, besides acting in the play. The club made the flats, which they use now as the background for all their plays, last year. Some members go out on special occasions and do the make-up work in different activities around the city. The Dramatics Club is also very active socially. Each year it sponsors the Christmas Formal, one of the school ' s largest social events. It also sponsors regular school dances at every opportunity throughout the school year. 40 DRAMATICS All the training and knowledge of the Dramatics Club are put to practice in plays. The club presents three or four plays a year to the student body at special convocations. Each student pays an admission price of ten cents, which goes to the Dramatics Club for buying props, mak3-up, and play scripts. This year the club presented three plays. The first was The Importance of Being Ernest. This was the story of two young men who posed as each other so that one could get away from home and the other could be with his lady love, but the ending was a great surprise. Everything Nice was also presented. It was the story of two little girls who had the art of doing wrong seemingly mastered. The last play pre- sented was Undertow, a mystery, which f3atured an all girl cast.

Myers, the Girls ' Glee Club met two days a week during the first semester of the school year. This choral group had thirty-three members. The girls studied three-part music arranged for first soprano, sec- ond soprano, and alto voices. The Glee Club, as well as the Choir, participated in the Porter County Cho- rus. All-County Day, December 3, to which each county school sends repre- sentatives, is an annual affair. Since the Glee Club and Choir were both rather small the first semes- ter, Mrs. Myers decided to combine the two groups to make a larger choir the second portion of the year. 42 Top Row: Left to Right Phyllis Frank, Veinette Book, Evelyn Dahl, Jane Maxwell, Joanne Cochran, Janet Oliver.

CHOIR The choir, composed of sixty-four members, met three times a week the first sem- ester and five days a week the second semester, under the direction of Mrs. Mary S. Myers . In the choir there were nineteen boys and forty-five girls. The students studied music arranged for soprano, alto, tenor, and bass voices. The chorus presented many special programs. During the Christmas season, the group sang at the Kiwanis and Rotary Club meetings. They also put on a holi- day performance before the student body. Following an annual custom, Mrs. Myers chose eight songsters to go caroling at the city schools, Porter County Court House, and the Porter Memorial Hospital. This choral group sent represntatives to the solo and ensemble contest held at Hobart, Indiana, February 19. Out of the Valparaiso group of thirteen, seven " firsts " were awarded. Two ensembles entered. The ensemble of girls received a " first " and the boys ' ensemble, a " second. " Those who v ere given a superior rat- ing competed at Indianapolis, Indiana, March 26. In order to be able to enter the choir, glee club, and band contest at Lafayette, Indiana, April 23, the choir presented a concert earlier in April. The money raised from this concert and a school dance held in March paid for the entrance fee and the bus transportation. On special occasions such as Thanksgiving Day, Valentine ' s Day, and other holidays, the choir sang a few appropriate tunes over the school public address system. The members of the group do not have to pay any fees or dues, as the school board buys all of the music. 43 BAND There has been music in the air around V. H. S. since 1930, when our band was first organized. The members of the band are students who have studied music since they were in grade school and those v ho took an interest in high school and took lessons to gain a place in the band. Those students, who have played instru- ments for several years, often continue lessons in high school, either under Mr. Har- old Rogers, the director, or teachers who come from South Bend and Chicago to give weekly lessons. These lessons are private and are paid for by the students who take the lessons. The band provides all music free and rents instruments to band students. An- other service the band offers its members is sectional practice, which is held once a week. All uniforms are the property of the band; the money for purchasing new uniforms is raised in various ways. However, the last band uniforms were paid for by a private citizen.

The band is a very active organization; when it isn ' t providing music, it ' s busy providing entertainment and pleasure for others in various v ays. During the football season, the band presents various marching formations on the field and also stages eye-filling extravaganzas. Each year they cooperate v ith the choir and glee club to present their annual concert. Last year the band traveled to Hebron and performed for the high school students there. It also took part in the State Band Contest, and many members entered as soloists. Band members entertain themselves as Vi ell as the public WAith such occasions as the Band Party. This event is open to band members and their guests only. Last year the party was a hayride with dancing and refreshments afterwards. The mem- bers also took on the task of sponsoring a number of school dances throughout the year. 45 STUDENT COUNCIL The Student Council is a student-elected, advisory body. It takes an active part in all phases ol school life and makes decisions in matters concerning student activi- ty. The council is sponsored by Mr. Glen Fisher and Mr. Parke Loren. It has estab- lished itself firmly in the organization of the school in the short space of five years. The Student Council was founded in 1944. Originally another organization known as the Recreation Council performed the functions of our present council, but when it was granted additional duties and rights the name was changed to the Student Council. The Student Council is a representative body elected by the students from each homeroom with the exception of the freshman room 102, which elects three. Coun- cil members remain in office as long as they maintain a " C " average in grades. The president of the council is elected by the entire student body in May of the year pre- ceding the one in which he takes office.

Council Activities Among the many activities which the Student Council sponsors are the Homecoming Day, which is the high- hght of the school year, the annual May Dance, and regular dances throughout the school year. Each year the Council has a special project, which this year is the re-publi- cation of the Student Handbook, which gives information on courses, scholas- tic requirements,, and credits. Last year, the Council purchased a juke- box for use at school dances. Varsity Club The Varsity Club is another of the younger organizations in school, hav- ing had its beginning in 1947. All members of the club are varsity letter winners who have been recommended by the coaches and approved by the principal. Mr. John Wiggins, Mr. Robert Dille, Mr. Paul Miller, and Mr. Kenneth Pifer are the sponsors of the organization. The Varsity Club is very active in the school social life as well as in promoting better sports. 47 = a ' i ' " ' - ' ' ' -cIri .-4 ' S« SCIENCE CLUB Top Left — Science Club Officers; Left to Rigfit: Ricfiard Bond, secretary-treasurer; Melville V ' eller, vice-president; Arthur Hershman, president; David Turner, sergeont-al-arms.

The Science Club is one of the newer organizations m V. H. S., and yet it is one of the oldest. The ciub was first organized in 1931; and when the chemistry teach- ers changed in 1945, it was disbanded. Then m the spring of 1947, it was again or- ganized under the sponsorship of Mr. Glen Fisher, chemistry and physics instructor. The club was organized to provide science students with an additional source of scientific knowledge, and it provides extra time for practicing and discussing prob- lems which pertain to science. Science Club meetings were held every other week on Monday. For each meet- ing they have a program which either features a speaker who discusses some topic which has to do with science, or the entire club goes on a field trip to various places which are of interest to them in the city. During the past year, they visited the Water Works at Flint Lake, the Electrical Division of the McGill Manufacturing Com- pany, the Continental Diamond Fibre Company, Robert Miller Laboratories, Urschel Laboratories, and Valparaiso Technical Institute. During the Easter vacation, the entire organization took a trip through the Calumet Industrial region to visit some of the large plants The club provides interesting and extensive entertainment for its members. Each year they have a party for the Science Club members and guests, which is usually held the last meeting of the year. They also have parties on special holidays and sponsor many school dances. 48 VHS ADDITIONS Two new features have been added to V. H. S. during the past year. A large new shop building has been erected and will be ready for use by Sep- tember. The new building was brought from Fort Wayne piece by piece after sev- eral teachers and high school students had gone there and torn the building down. It is an old army barracks, sold as army surplus by the Government. The building will house a general shop, i m a machine shop, a room ' Vi ! ■■ lor art classes and me- chanical drawing, and one large and one small classroom. The other addition is the drivers ' training car, which was furnished through the cooperation of the French Motor Com- pany, in January, to be- gin a drivers ' training course. Mr. Wiggins is the driving instructor and thus has charge of the new car. It is a gray Ford sedan with dual brake and clutch controls.

H. S. The parade started at two o ' clock and marched to the Court House lawn for a pep session and talks. The defeat of the Wirt Troopers that night was the highlight of the day. At the dance, Margaret Zim- merman was crowned queen of the Homecoming by Dick Harrison. The queen ' s attend- ants v ere Helen Miller, Mary Griffin, Barbara Benson, Bar- bara Claudon, Mary Jane Jontz, and Joyce Vietzke. PROM - Another outstanding gala affair of the school year is the annual Junior-Senior Prom. The Prom is sponsored by the entire junior class, especially for the graduating senior class. Junior class members make all necessary arrange- ments and do all the elabo- rate decorating for the dance themselves. The gymnasium last year was decorated with blue and white scallopped strips of crepe paper across the room as a false ceiling with reflect- ing stars hanging from the ceiling at random. A band provided the music, and cook- ies and punch were served. 53 BACCALAUREATE COMMENCEMENT Top Left: Seniors taking their places on the stage in the gymnasium during commencement exercises.

SENIOR DAY PLAY SNAPS 55 SPORTS 56 ■ -t v-tJ - -rw ■ A Golden Opportunity " Not failure, but low aim, is crime. " Re- gardless of whether they won or lost, good sportsmanship and cooperation were ex- emplified by the Vikings throughout the year. The coach exhorts his men to play not only hard and fast but, above all, a clean and honest game. Invaluable is the " hoard of gold " each V. H. S. athlete has accumulated at the end of the season. 57 FOOTBALL Victories Well Earned Under the able leadership of Coach Wig- gins and Assistant Coach Miller, the fight- ing men of Valpo held a decided edge over their opponents. This advantage was due largely to the great number of strong- hearted recruits who turned out. Valpo ' s outstanding victories were against her traditional rivals. Lowell was worn down m a hard-won victory at Lowell with a score of 12 to 6. Hobart was defeat- ed by a score of 9 to m a fast, hard-hitting game. The annual Homecoming game, played this year with Wirt, was another victory for Valpo, and gave the Homecom- ing the final touch. Although a large number of the squad will be lost due to graduation, there are many good prospects remaining to make Valpo a tough opponent next year. Leit to Right, Top Row.

Fan participation was well reward- ed for the Vikings made an admirable showing on the gridiron with six wins, two ties, and two loses. The team was so well supported that at several home games half of the on-lookers were forced to stand. SCHEDULE Valpo . Valpo . Valpo . Valpo . Valpo . Valpo . Valpo . Valpo .

These girls were elected by the student body in the spring of 1948. 60 BASKETBALL Although Valpo opened the sea- son with an easy win over Crown Point, a difficult schedule denied them further victories for many weeks. In the meantime, the Dille- men never lost faith in their coach and practiced even harder to gain a well-earned victory. The game with Emerson near the end of the season brought new hope to the team and fams of V. H. S. For in this game, Valpo showed it had the fortitude to forge ahead in the face of seemingly overwhelming odds. This victory gave Valpo its first conference win in over two years. K " J %TIPP E.

SftATTN Coach Coach Dille, former All Ameri- can from Valparaiso University, and Paul Miller, assistant coach, have worked long and patiently with the basketball boys to pro- duce a smooth, precise team. Coach Dille is v ell qualified to train the players in the art of bas- ketball, as is evident from his ex- cellent record at V. U. To bring the Vikings, who have been a weak team for the past few years up to par requires patience and a lot of hard work. The future looks much brighter for Valpo basket- ball with Coach Dille at the reins. 61 VARSITY SQUAD Row 1: J, Van Ness, F. Highly, K. Dobbins, Row 2 G- Braun, E. Tauck, D. Bond, J. Hart- man, F.

For instance, just what do you suppose would happen to all the laundry; where would the equipment be scattered; what would happen to the foot- balls, basketballs, suits, and shoes; who would keep the scorebooks? These boys de- serve much credit for jobs well done. From left to right they are: John Sullivan, Richard Bun - dy, George Kilavos, and Leslie Milby. SECOND TEAM The second team under the able direction of Coach Miller has shown great promise with a not too impressive record. Lacking height the team has re- lied on speed to pull them through. From this group, in part, will come next years var- sity squad. They have possi- bilities of developing into a well-roundod, hard-fighting ball club. Next year these boys should make a fine showing in school leadership and sports- manship. 63 1 X , Track and Golf This was the best cross coun- try season that Valpo has ever had. Valpo won 6 out of 9 regu- lar meets, placed third at the Hobart Invitational, fourth in the conference, third in the State Regional, and eleventh m the State Finals. The track team won 4 out of 8 regular meets and placed sev- enth at the Chicago University Indoor Meet. In the conference preliminary, Tom Morris placed first in 440 and D. Brown second in high jump. At the conference final, T. Morris placed 4th in 440, and D. Brown tied for third in high jump. At the sectional T. Morris placed first in 440, J. Clif- ford third with shot, and D. Brown tied for third m high jump. In the spring of ' 49 golf was recognized as a conference sport. The team played eight conference meets and attended the La Porte Invitational Meet.

Like the pioneer women of 1849 who were strong and heal- thy, the girls of the Girls ' Ath- letic Association of Valparaiso High School in 1949 are devel- oping their bodies to also be- come strong, healthy, and co- operative members of their school and community in later life. The girls who participate in G.A.A. get all those advantages and many more. Along with all the exercises and team work in the games,, the girls also enjoy planning the annual spring bas- ketball banquet and " Sadie Hawkins " dance. The sports are divided into after-school and noonday ac- tivities. Speedball, the first ma- jor sport, was played outdoors under the direction of Jean Cris- man. Next came volleyball, guided by Mary Jontz. The girls were placed on six teams for the round robin tournament. In a close win over the seniors, the juniors emerged class cham- pions. Basketball started with the second semester, with Joyce Vietzke in charge. The eiaht teams were divided into " A " and " B " groups. As always, the class tournament was exciting. Baseball finished out the major sports for the year. The minor sports, which consisted of tumb- ling, track, and tennis, and the noonday league games, sup- plied the balance of the well- rounded girls ' sports program at V. H. S.
