THE PINTUS 1945
Fight, Green and White
We will sing a song of Veedersburg,
A good old Hoosier town,
We will shout for the green and white
'Til the roof comes falling down
'rahl 'rahl 'rahl
When they start you will know at sight
That the green and white will
fight, fight, fight!
We are here to sing and cheer
For dear old Veedersburg.

Here the students enjoy some yells and songs before an important
game. Cheering by the spectators is a big part in winning a ball game,
and Without leaders, organized yelling would be impossible. Many prac-

keeping high the spirits of V. H. S., whether winning or losing.

The Hi-Y Club was first organized in 1943 with Mr. Cronk as the
leader. Any boy in the sophomore, junior, or senior class is eligible to
be a member. The meetings are held once every two weeks, either at
the high school building or in the homes of members. The principles of
the club are based -on serving, helping, learning, and making. The organi-
zation has proved helpful in creating a better understanding between
students and school ideals.
Special occasions during the year for the club were some trips out
of town. In January the members attended the Murat theater in In-
dianapolis. In March they were in Danville at radio station WDAN for
the recording of the Veedersburg-Danville gameg there was also a swim-
ming party at the YMCA in Danville.

THE PINTUS 1945
Four years ago a group of boys and girls from .Stone Bluff, Ster-
ling, and Veedersburg gathered at Veedersburg High School to begin
their progress through four years of valued learning.
An freshmen they proved to be very capable of doing almost every-
thing at the wrong time. Forty-five lively youngsters made up the
crowd, Frances Simpson served as class president.
Advancing to the second year, they had thrown off their freshman
ways and were one of the upper classes Cto their way of thinkingj.
Bill Dice became president. T
At last they reached the junior year for which they had waited so
long. Frances Simpson was again their noble leader. The class Was well
represented in athletics by Bill Dice, Malcolm Erwin, Myron Harmon,
Bill Marquess, Sam McCutchan, Bill Switzer. Many juniors were active
in musical events. The height of this year came with the junior-senior
reception in Danville, with a dinner and a. movie.
The senior year was upon them all tool soon. In the fall of 1944
twenty-two members with a firm determination started as seniors to
make this last year a memorable one for them all. Don French became
president and filled this position well. The class was prominent in
basket-ball, the Breezes, Glee Club, and V. H. Sl. Varieties. Annual
sales came the first semester, and in January the real work began on
the thirty-seventh edition.
As the time for commencement draws near, they bid farewell to
school days and look into the future with a hope of peace on earth

THE PlNTUS'1945 '
The Pintus f l
The same hustle and bustle of getting the Pintus ready to go to
press was staged this year, as in previous years. The first edition ap-
peared in 1909, so each succeeding class feels an ambition to carry on
with the Worthwhile tradition established then.
A staH is appointed by the faculty early in the Winter in order to
have the book completed by the end of the school year. The various
members Work hard to make their edition a little different than pre-
Due to the war and certain limitations on paper and labor, the
Pintus is rather handicapped, but it always comes through in flying
colors. It is certain that this Pintus of 1945 will be the book-of-the
year around V. H. S.
