We, the class of 1937, publish this yearbook in a sincere
attempt to capture a true picture of our school life. Hoping
this glimpse of Wabash High School will serve as an aid to
memories in the years to come and as an index to our activities
for oncoming classes, we are proud to present the 1937 Syca-
Because we wish to recognize this his twenty-fifth year of
service to the Wabash City Schools,
Because we feel that largely due to his vision and efforts
we are privileged to enjoy the new Wabash High School build-
Because we appreciate and gratefully acknowledge his
friendly interest in us as individuals,
We dedicate this, the 1937 Sycamore, to Owen J. Neigh-
bours, Superintendent of the Wabash City Schools.

Four years ago our class entered Wabash High School as obscure
freshmen, regarded as something to be ridiculed occasionally and ignored
otherwise. Though the years have seemed short, our development has been
great. We have gradually discarded the minor role of clown and assumed
the more responsible role of leader.
As we entered into and enjoyed all the school activities, we tried to
follow faithfully and to lead wisely. Future classes may profit from our
example of successful attempts to cooperate with school officials and to
display the right attitude and proper school spirit.
Our years in high school have indeed been pleasant and profitable ones.
As we look back, we realize how happy our associations and experiences
have been. We look at the past with memories of pleasant eventsg we view
the future with tingling anticipation and slight apprehension. It is with
deep and sincere regret that we leave Wabash High School and turn to-
ward the stern reality of life.

Senior Class ill
E, the senior class of Wabash High School, in the year nineteen hun-
dred and thirty-seven, do here and now make known our last will and
testament and declare all other wills before said will null and void.
To the junior class, which is becoming more intelligent, we bequeath
some of our knowledge with the hope that some day they may attain the
same degree of brilliancy that we have.
To the sophomores we leave a part of our athletic ability in order that
"Dutch" Struck may have some fine material with which to carry on for
dear old Wabash High.
To the freshmen, who are yet green, we leave the hope that they, too,
may some day be seniors.
To the faculty, we leave exclusive copyrights on all our valuable papers
To the school as a whole we leave our outstanding record in every
phase of school activity.
In addition we have several individual bequests for needy and deserv-

time before the end of six weeks, to study hard in Mr. Eskew's room, and
to take your senior subjects seriously.

In reply to request from editor of "Who's Who".

June 1, 1950
Mr. Albert Nelson Marquis
The A. N. Marquis Co.
670 Cass Street
In answer to your request, we are pleased to submit this material to
you and sincerely hope that it will assist you in publishing your next edition
of "Who's Who".
Betty Brewer has set up her own studio in Vienna. In addition to her
work which is receiving acclaim in the world of art, she finds time to de-
velop the talents of the select few whose ability justifies her teaching.
Evelyn Crist, originator of the Crist Modern Method of Calisthenics, is
constantly proving that sound bodies are not extinct in these modern days
The former model, Miss Barbara Sailors, is in Paris at present study-
ing the latest trend in women's apparel. She plans to return to America in
the fall and take charge of her own exclusive dress shop in New York City.
r After the great strike was settled in the automobile industry, Chrysler
heads found a certain Ruth Curts at the head of their Personnel Depart-
ment. It later developed, however, that Ruth had dropped in to have the
brakes checked on her Plymouth.
With a characteristic flourish, Miss Judy Dawes descended upon the
style center at New York and proceeded to ascend to the top of the list of
New York's fine mannequins.
Miss Joan Welsh is in the Philippine Islands serving as secretary to
the commissioner. Joan received her job because of the excellent work she
did in Washington in the Pension Department.
People are anxiously awaiting the film version of Helen Rector's new
book, "Vanishing with the Air". Helen has rapidly made an important
place for herself in the literary world and this book, her latest, has been the
year's best seller.
Robert Naugle decided to take up medicine. He specializes in surgery
with offices in Indianapolis. Mary Miller, also a graduate of '37, is his
head nurse, and we understand they are both in demand there.
The Pan-American Airways has among its hostesses a Miss Marjorie
Wilkerson. She travels from New York to San Francisco. We know the
passengers on hor plane will have no difficulty in getting their minds off
the trip if Marjorie entertains them.
If you are in quest of a book, see Mary Schwab, one of the most com-
petent librarians in the business. Through her efforts the shelves of the
local library contain practically every book of merit known to the readers'
realm, and if it is possible that you desire a book that she does not have, it
is more than likely that she can secure it quickly by her contact with the
larger book centers.
You can get a glimpse of that old time broken field running of Ed Yar-
nelle's by dropping in at Jack Dempsey's restaurant up New York way, as
Ed skillfully escorts patrons to their tables. He would be head waiter by
now if he could grow a better moustache, but he is still trying.
Jim Biggs has been doing government work for fifteen years, and only
recently joined the famed staff of G-Men. He is still receiving congratula-
tions for his solution of the mysterious case of the disappearing peanuts in
a five and ten cent store in Chicago. He discovered that a gang of culprits
had tapped the store's supply and were using their swag for bean shooter
Dorothy Showalter is now heard from coast to coast via one of the
larger broadcasting systems. She is a featured pianist on an hour length
program and her original style and swinging rhythm is being enjoyed every
week by millions of radio listeners.
Dorothy Harrold is secretary to the president of the Prudential Insur-
ance Company. She is also a stockholder in the company and it is rumored
that if the president could take dictation he would be almost as valuable to
the business as Miss Harrold.
Mary Ann Fishback has had a change in her last name. Her husband
is the owner of one of the largest-well of all things-garages in Peru.
Elizabeth Hahn is operator of one of the most successful beauty salons
in Chicago. Many of her customers make regular and frequent appoint-
ments hoping to attain the same brisk beauty which their proprietor so suc-
cessfully retains year after year.
Marianne Wertenberger, after visiting Reno, Mexico, and Paris, has
settled down unattached in a restful villa in old Italy. Most of her time is
spent being at ease. Once in a while she tears clear out to the garden and
picks some flowers, tame ones to be sure, for she can no longer catch those
Lemoine Butler is managing the Woolworth Five and Ten cent store in
Peru with the very valuable assistance of Glyndon Hipskind as general
maintenance man, and Helen Valentine in charge of the candy counter.
After being featured on the vaudeville stage, Hall's Harmonizers, Jack
Hall, James Drill, Max Prewitt, Paul Dotson, and Dwight McCrocklin, with
Opal Kamp as feature songster, are now a number one Hollywood box office
I visited the Yarnelle Athletic Club the other day and found Richard
Yarnelle in charge, with James Thompson, wrestling instructor, Bill
Thompson, tennis instructor and successor to the title of "Big Bill" Tilden,
Wayne Gidley, boxing, and publicity handled by those ace publicity men,
John Fitzpatrick and John Hipskind.
Ernie Paullus, ace M. G. M. cameraman, has just signed a new contract.
Ernie is famous in Hollywood as a cameraman and credits his success to the
experience he obtained while chief photographer on the '37 Sycamore.
Robert Wakefield, famous dean of Harvard, has just finished another
book. The title is "Punctuality". The book will be released in the future
and he recommends it to all South Siders.
As usual, I trust you will include the famous entomologist, Owen
Neighbours. It seems his interest in beetles, which originated in the senior
play '37, aroused such enthusiasm that it led him to further studies and he
is now nationally known as an authority on the Coleoptera.
Woody Drook, who assumed the coaching duties at Central of South
Bend, attained the goal of every coach in high school-a state basketball
championship. Woody stands high in the estimation of his boys, and they
play with the same fighting spirit Woody showed when he played on the
Miss Dorothy Pontius, known on Broadway as Lona Nickle, has start-
ed her European tour. Dorothy soared to stardom from the chorus line in
Earl Carroll's Vanities. Her singing and dancing combined with her en-
thusiastic personality have earned her the plaudits of all Broadway.
Geneva Mossman is called the Bronze Lady down Miami way, for she
has been basking in Florida's famous sunlight for quite some time. She
went to Florida in 1937 to spend the winter and hasn't come back yet.
We can give you this information concerning Marjorie Scott. She fin-
ished her nurse's training and is now 'head nurse in the Riley Hospital, In-
dianapolis. Although new in the field of nursing, she has already built up
a reputation for her ability and skill in assisting the doctors.
Martha Jones is the last one of the class of '37 about whom we can
give you any information. She isn't Martha Jones anymore, but we haven't
been able to determine as yet just to what her last name was changed.
I hope this material will help you in publishing your "Who's Who" and
if I can assist you in any further way, don't hesitate to call on me.

With a record of six wins and four losses, the Apaches this year com-
pleted one of the hardest schedules ever played by a Wabash football team.
Coach Struck started the season with an inexperienced team which was
built around Eddie and Rich Yarnelle, the only men who had faced varsity
competition in football.
This year's edition of the gridiron warriors played with a chip on its
shoulder, for the impressive record of the two preceding seasons had to be
continued. Although the conference title was wrested away from Wabash,
the season was successful in every way. With only five men graduating,
next year promises to be a banner year in the annals of Wabash High
School's football history.
WABASH 16 KOKOMO 6

dedicated Goshen's new gridiron.
WABASH 33 ELWOOD 12

sence of Zinsmeistcr, their star fullback.

The Warsaw Tigers lacked sufficient power to cope successfully with Wabash.
WABASH 51 PLYMOUTH 0
Wabash inflicted the worst defeat of the season on the Plymouth Pilgrims.
WABASH 0 PERU 6
In a game played in six inches of mud and a cold driving rain, Peru was lucky
enough to slide over a touchdown, thus wresling the Conference, Championship from
WABASH 6 MUNCIE 32
The demoralized Wabash team suffered a disgraceful defeat at the hands of Muncie.
One redeeming feature of the game, however, was Eddie Yarnelle's brilliant Seventy
yard return of a punt through the entire Muncie team.
XVABASII G MARION 0
Wabash played its best game of the season in defeating .Marion in a hard and
cleanly fought game.

Wabash High School has long been recognized for its superiority in
athletics, and the basketball team which represented Wabash for the sea-
son of 1936-1937 not only justified any recognition which has been accord-
ed but also supplemented it. This year's team established the finest record
yet made at Wabash and for the second time won the regional tournament.
Wabash was the last major team in the state to go down in defeat
during the regular playing season. The fellows piled up a string of ten
victories before Alexandria eked out a. win by a one point margin. The
Apaches displayed their best form of the season in defeating Decatur, the
Illinois State Champions, and again they won the Four-Way Tourney. The
scheduled season was completed with Wabash winning seventeen games
and losing only three.
We won the Sectional Tourney without difficulty and Kokomo and Ma-
rion fell before the Apaches in the Regional. "Lady Luck" turned against
Wabash in the semi-finals at Muncie, and Warsaw, who had twice been
beaten by Wabash during the season, came back after being out-played and
out-scored in the first half to defeat the overconfident Wabash team.
This season's basketball team was undoubtedly the best ever to play
for Wabash. We should be proud of it and the coach who produced it.

The track team was greatly weakened by graduation and there are
very few experienced men in this year's squad. There are a great many
boys participating, and before the season is over a very good team should be
developed. Some of the outstanding men are Kinney in the dashes, Drook
in the half mile, Sunday and Sweet in the distance runs, Barnhart in the
middle distance, Biggs in the shot put and high jump, Ed Yarnelle and
Anderson in the high jump, and Dotson in the pole vault. Record to date

Tennis was included in the sports curriculum for the first time last
spring, and the tennis squad won twelve matches and lost only one.
Ed and Rich Yarnelle were the stars of last year's squad and have
never lost a match in high school competition. Bill Thompson and Floyd
Sweet have improved steadily and should be hard to beat this spring.
Up to this time only two matches have been played for the season and
one of these was won and the other tied. Glen Coolman is the coach for the
squad and has done much to make the high school tennis conscious. The
schedule for this spring, which includes the best teams in this section of
the state, is as follows:
Kokomo 2 matches
Marion 2 matches
Gas City 2 matches
Peru 2 matches
Dunkirk 1 match
South Side of Ft. Wayne 2 matches
Huntington 2 matches

The Wabash Girls' Athletic Association, boasting a membership of one
hundred and seventy-five, is the largest girls club in school. It is a mem-
ber of the Indiana League of High School Girls' Athletic Associations, a
group composed of thirty-five of the larger high schools in Indiana. Its
purpose is to sponsor athletic activities, promote good sportsmanship, and
Points are received on the basis of participation, following a state point
system. Five girls attained the highest honor this year, that of earning
state wall plaques. They are Marjorie Wilkerson, Dorothy Showalter, Eve-
lyn Rehak, Evelyn Crist, and Aileen Kester. Fifteen girls won their covet-
ed W's, as shown in the picture, and fifteen girls will receive their numerals
as a first award.
The annual G. A. A. banquet was started this year. In the basement
of the Christian church a sumptuous dinner was served. The year's awards
were presented by Miss Snow and a splendid talk was given to the group by
Miss Kelley of Muncie, who is the state manager for the League. A fea-
ture of the evening was the presentation of the first G. A. A. Honor Award
Cup to the school. Each year a faculty committee will select the outstand-
ing senior girl for the honor of having her name engraved on the cup which
will be placed in the school trophy case.
Ten girls traveled to State Play Day at Kendallville and ten went to
Frankfort for the Central Indiana Play Day. All had a fine time and are
looking forward to having it at Wabash at some future date.
