We, the seniors of 1947, dedicate this thirty-ninth edition of the Pintus to our parents, the faculty, and the ideals of our Alma Mater. L Uhr Biniuu '47 l::::. V. H. S. IMPROVEMENTS Numerous improvements have taken place in our building. The most notable of these is the new lighting system. The old inadequate system has been supplemented by modern fluorescent lighting. The old method of heating has been modernized and a stoker installed, which makes the operation of our steam heating svstem much more efficient. The walls have been painted, the floors refinished, and the entire building generally brightened up to make our school a place of pleasant surroundings. The home economics department has a new refrigerator, stoves, and dishes. Many new books, both fiction and reference, have been added to our library. The student body has a ready access to all types of literature. Opaque blinds have been installed in the assembly to make the operation of our sound projector mo1'e satisfactory. The film for our visual educa- tion program is provided by the fund maintained by the senior class. if l"' E,lfl'1' l Qlur Ulnzlu-1 1. BOARD OF EDUCATION HARRIS IJNIDASIOOD I'l'-'sim-111 J.

Dockins and Miss Cobb 'A' There surely was an abundance of courage in 1909, when the senior class off Veedersburg High School presented the first annual. We, as sen- iors of today, know what a task it is to complete a successful volume. No doubt this was many times more difficult in those first years, for those seniors did not have the completed work of previous classes to use as a guide. For these many years, several students of each senior class have worried and labored to edit the Pintus. To publish a book of this kind is not easy, and with both hope and fear, the senior class of 1947 presents its work to the public. If this book helps the reader to remember his school days, then the Pintus has accomplished its purpose, and the staff its aim. l-Uhr YmfllB '-17 I HW G Q N A M Marget-Dom uw E-EZ.-azz M mcg-,AB F Wagyu E R 0 M :cxxnluil AB K : hh.-Gaim H bhcamhwcn-Bm S EEN!! - A915 3:3 H O 'A-H0821 .HO :CMJ N ,mkzuc-DCU mm?-mwjm M ocwisglgt :mm-mam ZMECCF-O03 wean .5 R :ryan I I O QE?-M75 N M M sw: :GH NAMO-Em wgmmrga 0--:H-:om-Hmm 9535 335 : M,-aww-Aw gm:-uzm wmzcmmzm wnau-SOZM4 : bzamm: :LESS :Sain ,S bm'-Oywmm ,CSEOQO Misa-surwd, zmzwcm Eiga ,AMO-Sm ghawg' Swzwcm wzuogm WEEOEOUE 2:01 moz?

'Ir The academic course requires four years of English, three years of social science, two and one-half years of mathematics, two years of Latin or any other foreign language, and two years of science. A major is re- quired in social science and English, a minor, in science and of foreign language. Mathematics may be either a major or a minor. Students fulfilling the requirements of an academic course are pre- pared to enter college. A major is the successful completion of three years' work toward a subject, a minor, two years. The remaining subjects are elective. Thus a person may enroll in two or more subjects in another department and still be classed as an academic student.

The commercial department offers subjects which acquaint students with general business principles. Academic and vocational students may take one or more commercial subjects during the four years and still meet the requirements of their own department. L-'ig "1.::A.ig:.':,,1:.::fi-'M'""-1717?

Vocational students are required to complete at least twenty academic credits in addition to the eight vocational credits. One agriculture subject is taken each year during the four years, making the eight credits in all. This course offers the following subjects: freshmen, agriculture, biology, sophomores, dairying and animal hus- bandry, juniors, horticulture and crops, seniors, farm management. All students are required to complete one or more productive enter- prise projects, and one or more supplementary farming projects. An ex- ample of this is a farm account, which consists of taking farm inventory and keeping a record of business procedure through the year. derson, Roy Rusk. li r ll I ll l u l --':' E h r ij 1 xi l n I VOCATIONAL HOME ECONOMICS Front row, left to right: Joyce Christie, Sylvia Douglas.

'A' The vocational home economics department includes home economics in general, home nursing, child development, related arts, foods, and clothing. Beginning with 1942, this department is now completed in four years instead of the usual three years. Girls enrolled in this course gain knowledge and skill through actual practice in cooking, sewing and a home project. Vocational work is available in the summer months through 4-H Club work to all girls living in VanBuren Township.

This mimeographed paper, which appears once every two weeks, contains news of sports in season, and activities of different departments and classes. There is no regular staff, as this is a clas pro- ject, and the various members of the class have an opportunity to gain experience in doing all the kinds of work. bhr Ullll l ,Ihr llllllll HI-Y First row, left to right: Robert McLean, Robert Booe, Dale Reed, James Hoagland, Richard Miller.

'A' The Hi-Y Club, organized by Mr. Cronk, has now completed its fourth successful year with a group of boys who have adopted as their slogan "Create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian character." It is hoped that the four boys who will leave us this year will carry this slogan with them through life. The club has a regular meeting on the first and third Tuesday nights of every month. The boys had a swimming party at the Danville Y. M. C. A., and several other interesting trips are planned in this year's pro- gram.

I-Uhr minus -17 T Q,hr ljlllfll I SENIOR HISTORY The following events about to be related are brief notes on our high school career. Only a few more days and we shall find ourselves high school graduates. September of 1943 finally dawned for a group of eager little boys and girls, and each one no doubt had in mind-a high school student at last. We entered school timidly, but nobly survived the various problems of adjusting to high school behavior. Norman Meeker becafme president. Next we had a class party, then the busy basketball season began, and all too soon came spring, which ended the difficult freshman year. The sophomore year began, and what fun we had renewing acquaint- ances from the previous year. Norman Meeker was president again. We had out-grown some of our childish ways, were more active in music and athleticsg in short, we were a part of high school. In our junior year we elected Norman president again. This year proved to be a really busy one, to make money for the junior-senior re- ception was a problem, but not for long, as Mr. Cade urged us on with our magazine sales. We were active in band practice, attending basketball games, taking part in V. H. S. Varieties, and finally the junior-senior re- ception, it consisted of a dinner followed by dancing in our gymnasium. The gala occasion revolved around a circus theme. For twenty-eight members of that eager group of 1943, our senior year began. What pleasure we felt at the anticipation of being seniors of 1947. Jane Marshall became president. The juniors entertained us with a Hallowe'en dance, and we sponsored the Christmas dance. The days passed too rapidly, studies became more complicated, and then we were in one grand rush to prepare the Breeze, edit the Pintus, produce a play, attend the junior-senior reception, and at last to graduate and become alumni of V.
