SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
September 1920 marked the advent
of the illustrious class of '24 within
the portals of our dear old Wabash
High School. Dignified Seniors now,
but then we were unknowing, trembl-
ing, little, innocent youngsters. The
usual welcome administered to the in-
coming class by the enthusiastic up-
per-classmen served to instill in us
the proper appreciation for the privi-
lege of acquiring a higher education.
After madly rushing through the cor-
ridors to our various classes and for
a few days, struggling nervously to
open stubborn lockers, we began our
studies with a zeal and earnestness
that was not to be daunted. During
our first year in high school we prov-
ed to the satisfaction of all that we
were able to hold our place admirably
with the upper classmen.
The next fall we returned to school
with renewed zeal for the advanced
studies of Sophomores. Early that
year we selected such attractive
class pins and rings that immediately
they proved to be the envy of the en-
How quickly time flew, for now we
were upperclassmen-Juniors. Every
day was crowded with the increased
duties of our class work. The crown-
ing event of the year was the never-
to-be-forgotten Junior and Senior
banquet at which we royally enter-
tained our honored superiors. Long
will the remembrance of this social
success stand out in the mind of every
Junior and Senior.
At last, we have attained the dis-
tinctive title of "dignified Seniors."
With our honored position in school
comes heavier work of various activi-
ties-the publishing of the Annual
and presentation of the Senior Play.
During our career in high school
many have proved themselves capab-
le of high scholastic honors, for every
six weeks the names of several mem-
bers of the class of '24 have appeared
in bold relief on the honor roll.
Speaking of athletics-the class of
'24 has produced undoubtedly some
of the school's greatest athletes.
What would the football team have
accomplished without Capt. Schultz?
Always have the girls of this class
shown unflinching loyality to school
athletics. It is a Senior girl who or-
ganized and is president of the Boost-
ing Belles, the fairer sex organization
sponsoring loyalty to school athletics.
Likewise the Leather Lungs, a similar
organization of boys, is headed by a
Throughout our years in high
school our original class has gradual-
ly decreased in numbers, but still we
are the largest class ever graduated
from W. H. S. Some have withdrawn
to larger schools, while a few of our
most fascinating girls have joyfully
embarked upon the tempestuous sea
of matrimonyg still others of our
number apparently disregarded the
efforts and requisites necessary for
standard class work. Nevertheless
we have enjoyed our years in high
school and tried to imbibe the funda-
mentals of good citizenship and clean

UNIOR CLASS HISTORY
It was on a bright September
morning on the sixth day of that
month, in the year of 1921, that the
illustrious class of '25 made its ap-
pearance in its now beloved building
of learning. Not without some tim-
idness intermingled with their ex-
pectations of what was to come, did
the members step into the hall Where
many feet had trodden the somewhat
difficult pathway of study.
Being a class of great promptness
in all their undertakings, they soon
elected a president, Homer Kneeg
vice-president, Dorothy Davisg and
secretary and treasurer, Powell
Pearson, who started upon their offi-
It was this class, just think, those
trembling first day entrants, -who
successfully carried the honors of the
interclass track meet.
Thus after a year of struggles and
triumphs, this progressive and ac-
tive class entered another phase of
high school life, known by the name
Officers were soon elected, James
Godwin as presidentg Dorothy Davis,
vice-president, and Josephine Burke,
secretary and treasurer.
This class with its great number of
star athletes carried away for a sec-
ond time the honors in the interclass
track meet, and aided Wabash High
School to many a victory in every
branch of athletics.
In scholarship how could this Well-
known class be excelled? Many were
the names from the class of '25, that
found their way upon the honor roll.
In a social way this class can do
much, as they have repeatedly shown
long before this. With all the pic-
nics and parties, with their good
times, could a class room ever be dull?
The class entered upon another
year of work in the same old Wabash
High, non-achieving some of that
awe-inspiring dignity which first
overwhelmed us in our first few
weeks as freshmen.
As Juniors, we chose Ralph Bowlby,
presidentg Dorothy Davis, vice-presi-
dentg and Miriam Wienburg, secre-
tary and treasurer.
A third time '25 has seized the vic-
tory in the interclass track meet, thus
adding another triumph to her al-
ready well iilled list. J
At last came the Junior-Senior Ban-
quet, the most looked-for and longed-
for achievement of the year. This
money for financing it was earned by
the Juniors, who sold tickets, tickets,
and more tickets for a recital and for
a motion picture.
We are sure the Seniors had a good
time and know that the J uniors' work
was well-rewarded by a great success.
Now comes the time for advance-
ment, and we eagerly hope for anoth-
er year of the same benefits that this
year has brought to us.

HISTORY OF CLASS '26
Early in September of one of the
years of long ago a large number of
boys and girls, feeling very unneces-
sary, went to the theater, and there
met in their first convocation with
the upper classes. These were the
Freshmen. The boys immediately
found their colors were to be black
and blue for the first week and then
they were to take the ones which
hovered in the background and which
the girls took at once-the orange
We sought the knowledge which
only High School could give to us, and
we were very successful. W'e have
been high in scholorship, having
many who are regularly on the Honor
Roll on both Honorable Mention and
Special Mention. h
After a hard time learning the
routine of the school we finished our
Freshman year and became the
Sophomore. We soon had ameeting
and elected George Murphy, presi-
dent: Mary Ellen McNamee, Vice-
President, and Thomas Eiler the Sec-
retary-Treasurer. We then bought
our class rings and pins, which may
be said to be the best looking in the
school. Our oflicers have led us
through a very successful year, and
we are one of the most important
classes in the school.
We do not see how the school could
long prosper without the athletes of
the Class of 226. We furnish much
to every sport. Our athletes are some
of the very best and include such
stars as Marks, Smyers, Bundy, Rob-
inson and many others who have help-
ed to make the teams strong. In this
and all other school activities the
Sophomore Class is the envy of the
others, and our-representatives, the
So we conclude, as all Sophomores
do, that it is our opinion that our
class is the wisest, the strongest and
the best class in the Wabash High

One cool morning in early Septem-
ber a band of Freshmen, numbering
about six score, toiled up the hill to-
ward the temple dedicated to the
goddess Knowledge. With quaking
hearts and minds full of misgivings,
they entered the portals of that for-
midable mass of cold, grey stone,
sometimes called High School.
Now there dwelt in that temple
ogres and giants, monstrous beings,
who could be conquered only by per-
severance. X, a sinster unknown
quantity, adverbs, adjectives, and
other evil spirits lurked about wait-
ing for victims.
In this temple were certain elusive
rooms which were never in the same
place twice, confusing corridors, and
baffling stair ways, all of which were
in league against the innocent Fresh-
men, but perhaps the most dangerous
of all were the two treacherous sirens,
Indolence and Idleness, who lay in
v.:1it for any Freshman who might be
led astray. Their song was sweet, but
they were deceitful, and cruel at
The Freshman's only weapons were
his good sword, Determination, his
shining armor, Perseverence, and his
powerful shield, Pluck or Stick-to-it-
Twice a fortnight these valiant
knights of the green held high carni-
val at the castle known as the Eagles.
With this gala event came the two
entertainers, Music and Song, and
often from the castle would ring the
battle cry of Wabash's noble sons,
"Yea Wabash I"
So the year wore on. Autumn
passed into winter, and with the
changing of the seasons came the
dreaded trial of strength, Semester
Tests. Soon after yule tide it came,
bringing joy to some., and despair to
others. Great were the preparations
for this trial, and by dint of much
labor all but a few laggards were
triumphant. Ignorance, that horrible
monster who is always searching for
new victims, fell, not dead but con-
Thus ended the first trial. Now
the victorious Freshmen are ready
to forge ahead, overcome all obstacles,
and win the much coveted title of
"I wish to ask a question concern-
ing a tragedy."
"What's my grade ?"
Shoe Clerk-What size, sir Z'

The Peace Plan
"A practical plan by which the
United States can co-operate with the
rest of the world for the effective
preservation of peace.
"There is little dispute at the pre-
sent time as to the pressing need of
some sort of union between the vari-
ous nations of the world for the ef-
fective preservation of p e a c e.
Throughout history war has devast-
ated countries and retarded the pro-
gress of civilization, until the majori-
ty of the people of the world are
crying out against war, and demand-
ing that some plan be adopted by
which peace will be made permanent.
"Since the World war the plan for
a League of Nations has been adopted
by over nfty countries and has been
put in operation. This plan calls for
a council, comprised of representa-
tives from the more important mem-
bers of the League, and the assembly,
comprised of representatives from all
the members. These decide disputes
which may arise between the memb-
ers and call on them to send troops,
supplies, and money to any member
who may be attacked by another
"This plan has led to bitter dis-
putes, especially over the right of
the League to dictate to any country
its foreign policy. It has displayed its
inefficiency in the trouble over Memel,
a city which was stormed and taken
by Lithuania after the League had de-
clared it an International Port, in
the Turkish affairs in the Near East,
which almost led to hostilities be-
tween the most powerful members of
the League, and in the yet more re-
cent trouble over Corfu, where Italy
defied the League and the League's
"Owing to the inability of the leag-
ue to cope with these situations, a
new plan is needed, which may prove
more certain of securing harmonious
peace. However, it must be kept in
mind that the main countries of the
world, excepting the United States,
belong to the league, and they will
not be willing entirely to throw aside
the present plan for some other, in
spite of the evident inadequacy of
the league. For this reason we must
rely upon forming some new plan
which may prove more certain to pro-
duce permanent peace. I suggest this
plan as one which will secure the de-
"Keep the organization of the
League as at present, with the council
representing the more important
members and the assembly represent-
ing all the members. But when a dis-
pute shall arise between two countries
these countries shall first appoint
representatives to a joint conference,
where, if possible, suitable arbitra-
tion shall be agreed upon. The means
of ratification of the plan adopted
shall be decided according to the
laws of the countries concerned.
To succeed in establishing harmo-
nious peace, any plan must recognise
certain rights. Prime among these is
the right of independent action. This
plan, instead of allowing Japan, ln-
dia, Greece, Czecho-Slovacia, Persia
and some forty odd other countries,
with their widely varying interests,
ideals, and forms of government, to
dictate the foreign policy of other
countries, leaves the conduct of each
country's foreign affairs entirely in
her own hands. The two disputing
countries from their own plan of ar-
bitration in their own conferences,
and it is ratified according to their
However, if arbitration cannot be
agreed upon, either country may re-
fer the dispute to the council of the
league. To the council because it is a
small body, easily called together,
and able quickly to render decisions.
On the other hand, upon the demand
of either country the dispute shall
be referred to thelassembly. By the
assembly, decisions could not be
rendered so quickly, but they would
be more expressive of the general
opinions of all the members. In eith-
er case the procedure shall be the
same. The council or assembly, as
the case may be, shall hear represen-
tatives from each of the countries,
deliberate upon the testimony offer-
ed, and deliver to each country its re-
commendations as to suitable arbitra-
Thus the league may advise disput-
ing countries to take a certain course
of action, but she cannot force them
to follow this course. This removes
the cause for disputes and resent-
ment which would arise in any coun-
try that felt she was being forced into
a certain course of action by coun-
tries hostile to her interests. Such a
feeling of resentment would be one
of the most potent causes of war,
and by removing this stumbling block
peace is made much more certain.
The treaty-making body of each
country shall pass upon these recom-
mendations, and either accept them
or reject them and rely upon forming
some new plan which may prove more
acceptable to both. However, no coun-
try may, under any pretext, become
the aggressor in a war. The league
has no right to dictate to any country
its foreign policy, or to draw any
country into war, but it does have a
right to use any peaceful means at
its command to suppress war, for war
injures not only belligerent nations,
but neutrals as well, and for this reas-
on is a matter of international con-
cern. Therefore any country which,
as aggressor, makes what is common-
ly declared by international law an
act of war shall have an absolute boy-
cott declared upon her by the as-
sembly of the league and every mem-
ber of the league shall solemnly agree
not to carry on any trade whatsoever,
directly or indirectly, with any coun-
try so boycotted by the assembly, un-
til peace would be declared.
The efliciency of this plan can only
be realized when we reflect that
under modern civilization, no country
can long carry on war without some
intercourse with foreign nations. It
was lack of supplies which defeated
Germany in the world war, which de-
feated the Boers in the Boer war,
which defeated the South in the Civil
war. With the countries of the world
banded together, what a terrible
threat it would be to know that a
declaration of war would lead to a
suspension of all trade relations with
that league of countries until peace
would be declared. Well might a coun-
try hesitate to declare war against
such formidable obstacles!
By declaring war on a nation which
starts a war, we are using as a means
the very thing which we are trying
to prevent, and instead of a war be-
tween two countries we have a world
war. lVar can never prevent warl'
This plan would meet war with
peace, and quietly, but effectually,
suppress it. By doing away with the
need for armies and navies for pro-
tection, it directly paves the way for
total disarmament, which will be the
Hnal step toward world peace.
Such a plan is the only one with
which the United States can co-ope-
rate. The principles upon which this
Republic is founded demand that the
rights of a free country be respected,
and demand that we make no alli-
ances with foreign countries which
will draw us into their wars, and
which will prevent the people of the
United States from deciding, through
their appointed representatives, the
foreign policy of our country. This
plan, by respecting these rights and
principles, makes it possible for the
United States to co-operate with the
rest of the world in a program which
will insure peace.
In summary, this plan will suceed
in establishing permanent peace by
letting each nation settle her own
disputes with foreign nations, with-
out foreigln intervention, excepting
advice given by the league upon re-
quest, by removing the stumbling
blocks which have prevented the
United States from co-operating with
the rest of the world in a peace pro-
gram and by boycotting any nation
which declares war on another nation,
and thus peacefully suppressing that

Foot Ball History
GRANT N. STENGER
When the call for football was giv-
en, about fifty men reported to Coach
Starting with only four regulars
around which to center a team, Coach
Stenger began the difficult task of
weeding out the best material from
the candidates. The team met with
many reverses this season but kept
plugging away under difficulties.
Since only three men will be lost
to the squad next year, Wabash
should experience the thrill of having
a team which will bring fame to
Wabash High through its victories.
Schultz, captaing Herrell, Guard:
and Pearson, End, are the only men
who will leave the team.
"Jimmy" Schultz, captain, center
and quarterback played his last game
with the orange and black against
Warsaw. Schultz was an able leader
who always did things for the better-
ment of the team. He never gave up
hope and played the game to the last
whistle in every encounter. In every
game in which Schultz participated
he neyer left the field without being
congratulated by the men and ofhcials
of the opposing on his good sports-
manship and fighting spirit. His ab-
sence from the team will be sorely felt
Pearson, the red-haired end man,
made himself a name when he inter-
cepted a pass and ran for the touch-
down which beat Fort Wayne. Fans
'razzed' Pearson considerably, but he
never failed to come through at the
critical period of the game. He
proved his value at the end position
by breaking every run which came
his way. Pearson was the clown of
the team and never failed to draw a
laugh from the members of the team.
It will be hard to find a man worthy
to fill his shoes at end position when
he leaves the squad this season.
Herrell, tackle, also played his last
game with orange and black against
WVarsaw. Herrell snapped out of it
this season and showed real ability
at tackle. He 'did his stuff' at Sheri-
dan where he broke through the line
time after time throwing his man for
Gverdeer played his first year's
football and stuck to the team
through thick and thin. He substi-
tuted for Smyers in the Sheridan
game and few plays went through

brilliant one, yet much Was a.ccom-
plished and certainly a foundation
was laid for a series of victories next
year. Coach Steriger had to build
up the faith of his players in the
game, had to instill a Working spirit
in the men, and had to teach them the
fundamentals of the game, as well as
coach them in the finer technical
points that are beginning to make the
teams of Indiana.
He, with the ready support of
principal, M. C. Darnall, made the
team of 1923. With the coming of
next year, hopes are had for one of
the finest teams old Wabash has

THE SENIOR PLAY
The Senior Play "Clarence", which
was presented at the Eagles Theatre,
Monday Evening, April 7, 1924, was
received by an enthusiastic audience
which packed the theatre. This in-
dicates that Booth Tarkington's
"Clarence" is the best of plays and
easily takes the lead of all the others.
The audience was a very appreciative
one and responded most freely to the
remarks made by the cast, whether
humorous or caustic.
The members of the cast were ex-
ceptionally well chosen for their
parts. Each boy and girl fitted exact-
ly in his or her role. Judging from
the nights performance, "Clarence"
CHARLES E. SHANK
is far superior and a great deal differ-
ent from the usual calibre that most
high school students present.
Much credit for the success of the
show is due to Charles Edwin Shank,
Cdirectorb who attended to every de-
tail in making the production the huge
success. Even the smallest item was
in keeping with the requirements of
the show. Mr. Shank has the gift of
putting into each production a por-
tion of his own ingenuity and artis-
try. Owing to the fact that Mr.
Shank was connected with Lyceum
work, he was unable to coach the
Senior play last year. But we hope
to have him with us next year.
People of Wabash have learned that
whenever Mr. Shank is here to coach
and direct High School plays or other
amateur performances they will be

now waiting for Mr. Wheeler. In a
few minutes Mr. Wheeler, a quiet and
dignified, middle-aged man, entered
and inquired of Mrs. Martyn con-
cerning his appointments that day.
He.was told a soldier who had been
waiting for two days in the outside
waiting room for an opportunity to
see Mr. Wheeler, Mr. Wheeler agreed
to talk to him merely because he was
a returned soldier who looked sadly
in need of work. Mr. Wheeler also
informed Mrs. Martyn that he was
expecting his daughter, Cora, and her
governess, Violet Pinney, ,and that
he will see them. He went into his
private office, and at that moment,
Mrs. Wheeler, a pretty, young-look-
ing woman, who is Mr. Wheeler's
second wife, entered, and by her per-
sistent inquiring concerning her hus-
band, plainly showed that she was
jealous of Miss Pinney.
After her departure. Bobby Wheel-
er entered. Bobby, seventeen, had
just been fired from a school. His
fondest dream was to become a man
of the world, and to wear snappy-
looking clothes. He appeared with
his father's spats and cane and was
the object of ridicule in the eyes of
Cora, his young sister, who entered at
this time with Miss Pinney. Miss
Pinney went immediately to Mr.
Wheeler's office, while Bobby and
Cora had their usual brother-and-
At this time Mrs. Martyn entered
with Clarence, the returned sold-
ier boy. He was dressed in his
uniform, even to the huge, uncom-
fortable 'hob-nails. His hair was
stringing over one eye, and his big-
rimmed glasses made his eyes appear
unnaturally large and round. Some
ailment forced him to sag to one side,
which, together with his ill-fitting
clothes, made him a pitiable-looking
At his entrance, Bobby and Cora
immediately lost all their assumed
dignity and became the curious and
inquisitive children that they were.
They besieged him with questions
and found that Clarence drove army
mules without swearing and that his
liver was causing him to sag.
Mrs. Wheeler came back and
sought sympathy from Bobby. Miss
Pinney came from the office at this
time with Cora and Mr. Wheeler.
Bobby so idolized Miss Pinney that
he became speechless at her entrance.
She inquired of Clarence whether he
was wounded in France. Thev all
learned that he never got out of
In the beautiful country home of
Mr. Wheeler in New Jersey, Clarence
had almost become one of the family,
doing little jobs here and there and
finally causing the entire family to
like him, including Della, the Irish
Della was grieved because Bobby
had kissed her and then refused to
marry her or give her compensation
in some way. But when she saw
Clarence, instantly all thot of Bobby
left her, and she became an ardent
admirer of this man who had entered
the Wheeler home.
Mr. Hubert Stem, a grass-widower.
had learned to like Miss Pinney, and
in order to obtain interviews with
her, he pretended to love Cora. Cora,
who is young and impulsive, really
believed that she loved Mr. Stem:
Miss 'Pinney and Mr. Wheeler were
using combined efforts to rid her of
this foolish notion.
Miss Pinney told Hubert Stem
frankly that -Mr. Wheeler did not care
to have him call again, and then dis-
missed him by going over to talk to
Clarence, who was sitting in the same
room, pretending to tune the piano.
Miss Pinney, who acted as tho she
were not interested in Clarence, real-
ly admired him from afar.
Cora learned in some way that Mr.
Stem had called and instantly flew
into a tantrum because no one had
Miss Pinney had become so dis-
couraged with her position that she
begged to be relieved of her promise
to stay with Cora until she was over
her foolish ideas. But Mr. Wheeler
told her that he had depended so
much on her and that if she went he
would do the same. Mrs. Wheeler,
who had been listening, entered sob-
bing and declared that she wished
she had some-one to go away with.
At this trying moment, Clarence
entered, playing a saxophone, with
Cora, Della and Dinwiddie following.
Clarence dressed in beautiful, well-
fitting clothes looked handsome. The
entire Wheeler family was properly
astonished as Cora rushed to the
piano and began playing. Clarence
played on his saxophone, and Bobby,
forgetting himself, sang lustily.
In the evening at the country home.
Della again showed her admiration
by watching Clarence eat. Dinwiddie
entered with coffee cups and showed
his contempt by completely ignoring
Mrs. Wheeler begged Miss Pinney
to forgive her for the little scene that
afternoon as she knew it was all a
mistake. The whole family entered,
including Clarence and were convers-
ing pleasantly when Dinwiddie an-
nounced that Mr. Stem wished to see
Mr. Stem entered and after thrust-
ing a newspaper under Clarence's
nose, demanded whether he was
Charles Short, whose picture was in
the paper and who was wanted by a
government because he was a desert-
er. Mr. Wheeler said that that was
ridiculous, because Clarence's name
was "Smun." Miss Pinney declared
that it was "Moon", and Bobby said
it was Smith.
Clarence became very indignant
because the Wheeler family had ever
suspected his identity and announced
that his name could be found in the
last edition of "Who's Who," and
that he was a great authority on the
The next morning at the country
home. The atmosphere seemed to be
very different. There was not the
continual squabbling that there had
been, and everything seemed quiet
The family had been trying to find
about Clarence in "Who's Who" but
could not because they did not know
his last name.
In the morning mail there was a
letter for Clarence Smith and this
was Clarence himself. He had been
a great authority on the subject of
beetles and was now going back to
his old position as professor. Inci-
dentally he was taking Miss Pinney,
because she had agreed to marry him.
Bobby and Cora were both going
to be sent away to school, and peace
and order reigned in the Wheeler

operation among its members. The

not only in the school activities, but
in the community outside of the

The chorus, consisting entirely of
girls' voices, holds a permanent piace
among the organizations of Wabash
High School. It has been in existence
for many years, but has been steadily
increasing in membership. The
chorus now cannot be surpassed by
any in the state. Many delightful
programs have been given by this or-
ganization at convocation, and all
have been very well received by the
members of the school. The chorus

The musical organization gaining
the most hearty support of the school
is the glee club, consisting entirely of
boys. This club has been organized
only a few years, but its success has
been proved by the enthusiasm which
it has created among the student
body. Many a convocation has been
favored by these young musicians,
and their programs are looked for-
ward to with much eagerness.

The Sunshine Society was first or-
ganized in Crawfordsville, Indiana,
in 1900. It is organized for the pur-
pose of securing the best cooperation
and developing the best traits of
character. Helpfulness and useful-
ness are the watch words of the or-
ganization. The entire enrollment of
girls in the High School are active
members of the society.
The organization of the Sunshine
Society in W. H. S. was first intro-
duced as a temporary organization in
the Spring of 1922 and became a per-
manent one in September 1922. Miss
Moore was chosen as faculty sponsor,
and she and two Senior members at-
tended the 1922 convention at La-
Fayette. The 1923 convention was
held in Crawfordsville and was at-
tended by Miss Troxel, Margaret
Price and Virginia Cillen.
This year, as in preceding years,
the Sophomore, Junior and Senior
girls acted as "'Big Sisters" to the in-
coming Freshmen girls. At the annual
"Kid Party" these Freshmen girls
were initiated. With the proceeds
from the sale of holly wreaths at
Christmas time and the sale of candy
bars throughout the year, the society
has been able to send many bouquets
of flowers to the sick.

Another club that has added to the
social activities in W. H. S. is the
girls' booster club, the Boosting
Belles. They have been "on the job",
increasing the "pep" and school spirit.
When the club was first organized, a
constitution was drawn up, and all
girls desiring membership signed it,
agreeing to conform to all terms
In the capable hands of the club's
president, Audra Butterbaugih, the
girls have kept their rivals, the
Leather Lungs, busy trying to keep
up with them in boosting for the
school. The two clubs competed for
the sale of tickets to the Wabash-
Manual football game. The boys
won and were given a hallowe'en
party by the Boosting Belles.

Grace Davisson, vice president, Cor-
nelia Lumaree, secretary and treasur-
er, and various other members are
now planning a minstrel to be given
in the near future, to replenish the
The latest club to be formed in the
high school is the Hi-Vac, a radio
club which takes the place of the
Science Club, formed in previous
years. The name originated from
the high vacuum tubes used in the
high school radio set and does not
apply to the members' heads.
The programs have included inter-
esting and instructive talks on aerial,
batteries, magnetism, etc. After
business matters are transacted the
radio is tuned up, and the rest of the
evening the members enjoy listening
to musical numbers from Cuba, Cali-
fornia, Texas and numerous other
All W. H. S. students interested in
radio are privileged to become mem-
bers. The club meets every Wednes-
day evening at the high school. Ex-
penses of the club are covered by a
small membership fee, and the rent-
ing of the high school radio and bat-
During the first year of this club,
John Showalter and Katherine Fisher
have proved their ability as president
and secretary respectively. Jose-
phine Burke, Powell Pearson, Miriam
Wineburg, and Ralph Bowlby have
served as excellent members of the
program committee. Last, but not
least, Mr. Magner should be duly
credited for the time and work he has
given towards the betterment of the
One of the most interesting clubs
that has been formed in W. H. S. is
the Junior-Senior Latin Club, the
Inter Nos famong ourselvesj. Under
their instructor, Miss Blayney, this
club has become quite a success, and
its future looks even brighter. At
the meetings, which are held at the
homes of the different members every
month, Latin games are played and
Latin songs are sung. The meetings
are opened with an address in Latin
by the president, Maxwell Votaw. A
constitution was drawn up and each
member was given a Latin name and
a small owl pin. After business hours,
refreshments are served 'similar to
those served by the Romans two
thousand years ago.
The club has a very fitting motto:
"Et forsans haec olim meminisse
iuvabit", meaning, "And in the future
it will be a pleasure to remember
these things." Ofiicers are Francis
Mills, vice president, and Dorothy
Davis, secretary and treasurer.
The club is to be highly compli-
mented on its paper, the "Tempora
Romana." This paper is published
every six weeks and is issued only for
the members of the club. It contains
many interesting, as well as humor-
ous articles, which all conform to
Roman styles. The staff consists of
the Editor, George Beauchamp, and
the Assembling Committee: Dorothy
Davis, Josephine Burke, Francis
Mills, Edward Gribben and Margue-
rite Rhoads. All other members con-
tribute suitable material for publi-
Probably one of the most active
clubs in the High School is the bovsl
"Leather Lungs" booster club. This
club has held meetings regularly
every week since its organization in
the Gymnasium. Bart Smith was
elected president of the club, Linden
Maltby vice-president: Max Votaw,
secretary, although following his
resignation in February, Walter
Yoptfwas elected to take up his work.
Mr. Tewksbury and Mr. Carpenter
were named faculty sponsors.
There has been a great improve-
ment in the spirit of the boosters
since the organization of this club.
The members consist of those boys
who have the best school spirit and
who know how to back up the differ-
ent athletic teams. Although the
main purpose of this club is to do
business, they have enjoyed nume-
rous "feeds" and good times.
FOUR H CLUB
The vocational classes, under the
supervision of Miss Blesch, have or-
ganized a new club, which they christ-
ened the "Four H Club." The four
H's signify Head, Heart, Health and
Hand. Meetings are held every two
weeks at the high school. Although
the club meets principally for the
purpose of studying nursing, social
times are plentiful, and the club has
enjoyed frequent parties and lunch-
Wabash High School
The citizens of Wabash conscious
of the inadequacy of their education-
al facilities and convinced that only
through proper educational advant-
ages can progress come, in 1893 de-
cided upon the erection of a new
high school building. The work was
begun in the fall of that year. On
April 11, 1892 the corner stone was
laid by the Indiana Grand Lodge of
Masons with very impressive cere-
monies, in the presence not only of
the citizens but also the school child-
ren of the city.
On November 26 the building was
ready for occupancy, and classroom
Work began on that date. In charge
as principal was Adelaide Steele Bay-
lor, whom Wabash is so proud to
In 1903 Miss Baylor became head
of the city schools, and C. W. Knouff,
who succeeded her as principal, held
the position until 1908. Since that
time the principalship has been held
by C. H. Brady, O. J. Neighbours, M.
L. Sandifur and M. C. Darnall, who
is the present incumbent.
Owing to the increase in popula-
tion, and the conviction on the part of
the citizens that the public schools
are the very foundation of our demo-
cracy, the student body has far out-
grown the capacity of the building.
So inadequate has it become that the
assembly room has had to be divided
into four very incommodious class
rooms, in two of which artificial light
must be used during the entire day.
Classes, too, are held in the basement
of the library, and convocation must
be held in the theatre at the sacrifice
of time and money.
Again the old spirit of '93 must be
aroused, and again our citizens must
be made to realize that the boys and
girls of today are entitled to every
educational advantage if they are to
take their rightful places in this
rapidly changing age. A new build-
ing is the only solution to the prob-
Let us get behind the movement
and arouse an enthusiasm that will
culminate in a building suited to pre-
sent day needs.
The purpose of the Hi-Y is to
create, maintain, and extend through-
out the school and community, high
standards of Christian Character.

When this annual went to press,
the Juniors had not fully decided up-
on the program to be given at the
Junior-Senior banquet. It was de-
cided, however, that the banquet
would take place Wednesday, May
21, at the Presbyterian church.
The Juniors, under the leadership
of their president, Ralph Bowlby,
have been working hard in raising
funds for the banquet. They secured
the talent of Charles Edwin Shank,
Senior play director, in a recital giv-
en April 23, at the First M. E. church.
The entertainment was a big success,
and the Juniors cleared a good sum.
They are now selling tickets for a
benefit show to be given April 30 and
May 1. From this they hope to re-
alize enough more to cover the ex-
penses of the banquet.
The Seniors, as well as the Juniors,
are looking forward to the banquet
with increasing appetites, and they
will not be disappointed as the fol-
lowing menu has been decided upon
and will be used if no further changes

The "RaVelings" Staff
The "Commercial Ravelingsu, as
the name suggests, is a paper pub-
lished semi-monthly by the Commer-
cial students. It is not published for
their benefit alone, but for the
benefit of all W. H. S. students. It
was first issued November 22, 1922,
by Commercial students of the Class
of 1923. In spite of the fact that this
first staff worked under considerable
difiiculties, the paper was a success
in their hands. At the end of the
first semester the paper was put in
the hands of the Commercial stud-
ents of the Class of 1924. This staff
consisted of: Dorothy Roberts, editor:
Marie Lee, treasurer: Louise Lutz,
Society editor: Virginia Walrod, news
reporter: Martha Rumpf, class news:
Nona Williams, misc. reporter: lVary
Wire, athletic reporter: Marvin Ply,
assistant ath. reporter: Virginia Gil-
len, joke editor: Leah Hummer, art
editor: Helen Hill and Aline McCune,
business mgrs. Much credit is due
Miss Needham and Mr. Barnhart for
their expert management.
The students were able to save
enough money with which to buy a
new "Ditto" machine. This machine
is a great improvement over the old
mimeograph used up until the time
of the purchase of the "Ditto." With
this machine the paper became much
more artistic and neat. The subscrip-
tion price for this paper is thirty
cents for nine copies, or one semester.
This price is comparetively small
considering the work and time put
into the paper.
In the latter part of February the
"Commercial Ravelingsn was taken
over by the members of the Junior
Class. They have proved to be very
effecient and have added greatly to
the success of the paper. This staff,
which will continue its work next
year, consists of: Marcella Davis,
editor: Vida Mae Jones, treas-
urer: Mossie Galligar, society editor:
