" Classes 50 Seniors Biggs Drook Wakefield Robert Wakefield, president Jim Biggs, vice-president Woodie Drook, secretary-treasurer 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. AW ' f, a XL -of ,ipfwjf .U ., tu W! XJM f , f- 7- GERTRUDE M.

'34 all .M 513. . ffl 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 and themes. 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- ing people. I, Bob Naugle, bequeath my brilliant memory to any one willing to take it. I, John Hipskind, will my ability to be everywhere at once to no one as I want it myself. I, Ernest Paullus, leave Doris Dickson to the sophomores. I, Ruth Curts, leave my commercial ability to Mary Jane Martin. I, Marianne Wertenberger, bequeath my ability to obtain E's in Latin to Nancy Jean Latchem. I, Albert Franklin, leave my ability to please Miss Jones with my themes to Don Baumbauer. I, Kenneth Crouch, will Faye Speicher to that well known sailor man, G. N. McVicker. Although leap year is past, I, Martha Kelch, bequeath "Red" Miller to the juniors as Ican't take him with me. I We, Bob Wakefield and Helen Rector, leave our high scholastic ability to Alma Dodge and Johnny Janes that they may have more time for extra- curricular activities. We, Judy Dawes, Geneva Mossman, Joan Welsh, and Barbara Sailors, bequeath our places at the Green Hat to Jean Schlemmer and her crowd, they'll be there any way. tln ease it ever reopensl. We, Opal Kamp and Martha Jones, bequeath our titles as "chief dia- mond gettersu to Martha Betty Abernathy and Grace Yentes. I, Dorothy Pontius, will my ability to be at school on time to those peo- ple who inherited the misfortune to live far from school. We, Owen Neighbours, Jr. and John Fitzpatrick, leave our debating ability to Jack Wolf and Wayne Guernsey. I, Lemoine Butler, leave my title as 'tSlugger" Butler to Herb Urschel. I, Paul Dotson, will my place as first clarinet to Robert Tewksbury. I, Geneva Mossman, leave my place on the M. C. L. roll to ..1y brother John. I, Peg Temple, leave my ability to act to Marge Stewart or any junior girl who aspires to be in next yearis senior play. We, the Yarnelle twins, will our places in the football line to the Spo- seep twins, we want to keep it in pairs. I, Woodie Drook, bequeath my basketball tactics and other talents to Harry Lawson. I, Monsieur Jacques Corridor CJack Hall, to youj bequeath my knowl- edge of French to Miss Biggerstaff. I, James Biggs, will Joyce Summerland to Warren Sunday that they both may be happy. We, the Senior Hi-Y members, will to all the underclass girls the hope that they may go to next year's best girl banquet. We, the Sycamore staff, do bequeath our headaches in publishing this annual to the juniors with the advice that aspirin won't cure them. Finally, we wish to leave a bit of friendly advice. We feel it our duty to warn you to have your book reports in on time, to make up your tardy time before the end of six weeks, to study hard in Mr. Eskew's room, and to take your senior subjects seriously. Signed: The Senior Class 1937. Class Prophecy 1937 In reply to request from editor of "Who's Who". Wabash City Schools Wabash, Indiana June 1, 1950 Mr. Albert Nelson Marquis The A. N. Marquis Co. 670 Cass Street Chicago, Illinois Gentlemen: 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 of inactivity. 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 ammunition. Dorothy Showalter is now heard from coast to coast via one of the N N 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 wild ones. 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 attraction. 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 Wabash team. 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. Alumni Secretary Class of 1937.

Football 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 Going on the field with nine inexperienced players, the Wabash team completely outplayed a veteran Kokomo aggregation. WABASH 0 GOSHEN 6 Goshen handed Wabash its first defeat of the season in a hard fought game which dedicated Goshen's new gridiron. WABASH 33 ELWOOD 12 In the first home game Wabash scored at will and completely swamped the Elwood team. WABASH 20 HUNTINGTON 7 The Apaches easily defeated a Huntington team which was weakened by the ab- sence of Zinsmeistcr, their star fullback. WABASH 33 WARSAW 12 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. 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. VVABASH 0 NOBLESVILLE 14 Wabash, crippled by injuries, lost the last game of the season to a strong Nobles- ville lcam. Yell Leaders Margry Stewart, Joyce Summerland, Barbara Sims, Virginia Worthen. Bowlby Jones R. Yarnelle Votaw Wakefield Baumbauer Butler F. Sunday DAMON BOWLBY-Junior Center-Damon, the captain-elect, was a brilliant performer in the center of the line. WILLIAM JONES-Junior-Halfback-Bill was always there when he was needed and will be a bulwark in next year's backfield. RICHARD YARNELLE-Senior-Fullback--Our captain, line-plunger, and signal caller, Rich in the last three years has paved the way for many touchdowns. CALVIN VOTAW-Sophomore-Center-Cal played several positions equally well and has two seasons to go. HOMER BAUMBAUER-Junior-End-Baumy hits like a pile driver when he takes a man out of a play. ROBERT WAKEFIELD-Senior-End-Wakey was a fine defensive play- er, and they never got around his end.

EDWARD YARNELLE-Senior-Halfback-hEddie was one of the best players ever to don a suit for Wabash High School, and it will be diffi- cult indced to find anyone to take his place.

BASKETBALL 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.

ROBERT SHAMBAUGH-Junior-Forward-Shammy is a great ball hand- ler and should make lots of points next year. EDWARD YARNELLE-Senior-Forward-Eddie was the captain, high scorer, and one of the greatest basketball players in the state. DAMON BOWLBY-Junior-Center-Damon was seldom out-jumped, and his defensive Work made fast breaks impossible.

Track 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.

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.

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 train leaders. 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.
