O r O The embers of the dpache campfire are slowly dyingf and as they flieleer for the last fleeting moments, there is little time for a pause or a backward glance.

Our lives hafz'e been enriched by the association with our teachers and our classmates. 0ur best wishes to you freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. Jlay your high school years be as pleasant as ours hawe been. ot 4- 0 Mig., Robert Allison - Academic Hai-Yg "VV" Club, Science Club, Sergeant-at-Arms, Dramaticsg Or- ange and Black Staffg Thespian 3, 4, Los Airiigosg Football 3. 45 Junior Play, Sycamore Staff.

The requirements for this honorary organization are comparatively few but difficult to achieve. As a reward for working diligently on the Orange and Black staff, four students this year were made members of the Quill and Scroll: Ro- setta Beamer, Helen Ford, Jerry Rife, and Frank Stephens. The Hi-Y club. under the able sponsorship of Mr. Kauffmann, was one of the most active clubs this year. They started with their annual hayride, sponsored several dances, collected the largest Christmas food donation ever giv- en by VVabash students, and wound up with the traditional Best-Girl banquet. Officers were: Gene Crumley, president: Calvin Greiner. vice- presidentg Frank Stephens. secre- tary-treasurer: Jack Scott. chap- lain: and Larry hlartin. sergeant- at-arms.

Losing only two contests of the nine games scheduled, VVabash High enjoyed its most suc- cessful football season since l9-IPZ. One of those defeats was to the Plymouth Pilgrims, who be- came Conference Champs. The Apaches' second loss was to their formidable rivals, the lNIarion Giants. Back of our successful season was the excellent combination of Tatum, Kauffman, and Law- son, our head coach, our assistant coach, and our scout, respectively. The efforts of these men, combined with the Willingness of the boys to work as a team, made the 1947 season a great success.

The VVabash Scalpers opened their '47-4-8 basketball season none too impressively, falling to Central of North Manchester 38 to 35 in a hard-fought struggle. The Lawsonmen couldn,t find the range against Kokomo the following week either, and they came away on the short end of a 38 to 18 score. After an intensive drill on fundamentals, the Orange and Black came back strong against the next four opponents. Huntington couldn't stop the determined Scalper crew in the last half, therefore, they dropped a 48 to 38 decision to them. Wabash journeyed to Hartford City and came back victorious, to even the seasons record to date at two even. Wabash continued on its winning ways with a 30 to 28 victory over Tip- ton. It took a 12-minute stall by the Scalpers to stave off a last ditch rally by the Blue Devils. ln one of the hottest ball games of the year, El- wood fell -I-3 to -ll the following week. In regular season play, the Scalpers dropped the next three to Rochester, Auburn, and Peru. However, on January 3, the Apaches entered the four-way tourney at Hartford City. They lost the afternoon game to the highly-touted Ti- gers of Alexandria but won the consolation af- fair from Hartford City Airedales, 40 to 36. The conference race wasn't decided until. the last game, in fact, the Scalpers turned the tide two times before by dropping the Plymouth Pilgrims in a grudge battle 46 to 44, and by los- ing the final game to Alexandria, giving them C. I. C. honors instead of Peru. James Hipsher, Bob McDaniel, and Dale Thomson led the team scoring througrout the year, for the most part. George Coon kept things moving with his vicious rebound tactics, while Galen Weaver, the play maker, added timely points when they were most needed. Charles Dwyer, the diminitive guard replace- ment, along with WVendell Leland, top substi- tute at a forward slot, sparked the team in many clove games. Sectional time saw Wabash take the first game from Lincolnville 61 to 38. The LaFon- tain? Cossacks gave the Scalpers more trouble than was expected hut didn't have enough to win. They fell 49 to 30, because of a last-quar- ter scoring spree by the Apaches. The Linlawn Pirates gave the Orange and Black another scareg but when the gun sounded, it was 59-50 Wabash. The winning column stopped here as they fell to the Sectional favorites, Chester. 51 to 39. With Hipsher, VVeaver, and Thomson re- tuxning next year. our chances look very good for winning our second CIC crown. Coming up for duty on the first two fives will be lwerritt. VVilson. LaSalle, VVilliams, and Ogan, who will bolster the squad considerably. SQCOHJ ia!!! .Q Row 1: Gary Weesner, Ronald Holloway, Dick Driscoll, Vernon Leland, Bill Scheerer, Larry Smith.

The Wabash track team of 19-17 came through with a better than average season. James Parlzs, David Ford, Jack Sullivan, Darrell San- ders, and James Cairns, all returning lettermen, comprised the nucleus of the track squad. Although the team was the smallest in years, it was also the most powerful for its size. Add- ing Jerry Rife, dashman, and Burton Jones, a sophomore speedster, to the line-up gave Austin Holloway his crack half-mile relay team. With Dalton Barnett and James Emrick in the middle -distance, it was easy to get together a good mile- relay team. Dean Cassiday worked tirelessly in the half-mile, and James Bean, John Olden- kamp, Charles Dwyer, and Jim Hickey helped bolster the squad in their respective events. The Scalpers started things rolling with a convincing win over Chester. Wabash garnered 7716 points to the Panthers' 4156. The follow- ing week the Scalpers met much tougher compe- tition. The South YVhitley Bulldogs journeyed to VVabash only to be turned away 63 to 47. The meet was undecided until the half-mile relay team clinched the meet with a walk-away vic- tory. Wabash continued its winning ways, top- ping Central Catholic of Ft. Wayne by M point. The Scalpers met real trouble against Marion in a triangular affair along with Huntington. The lllarion thinly-clads, who couldn't be stopped. walked away with 76 points and the meet. The only dual meet loss was an upset to Hartford City. The Airedales edged the Scalp- ers 56 to 53. VVabash had more trouble than was expected in taming Peru 5756 to 5156. This time again, both relay teams had to come through in the grand finale in order to win. Burris of lVIuncie proved too much for the ten teams in the "B" class at the Muncie Re- lays. The Scalpers grabbed third place, how- ever, after a hard struggle with Warsaw. The 'Orange and Black squad found the going tough at the Kokomo Relays also. Here with 22 teams entered, VVabash nabbed only seventh position. The home team gained revenge over Hartford City in the conference meet held in Muncie. Though again, none were powerful enough to stop Burris' bid for top honors. The Scalpers walked away with the county track meet with 74 points. Chester and Central finished second and third respectively. VVith only veterans Jerry Rife and Darrell Sanders returning, the track outlook may not be too promising for Coach Austin Holloway in '-l-S. However, there are more than a dozen un- derclassmen coming up with possibilities, so we will just wait and see. l road Couniry Sliller, Leonard, Holloway, Xlerritt, Sanders, James Bean, Backus, Jerry Oldenlcamp, Bikzel, John Oldenkamp, Smith, Ed Bean, XVilliams.
