The green buds of springtime are
shown in this scene. The falling
leaves rustling under our feet as we
walk to and from school, the
unbelievable iairyland of winter,
the blossoms of the lilac bushes in
the spring, Water dripping from
the trees-these are the scenes
which are familiar to all of us.
As seniors We will forever remember
the chirping birds, planes droning
overhead, bees buzzing into the
rooms, and the beauty of our campus

Speech, latin, S
Speech has been beneficial
to many students. It has given
them confidence to speak
before a group, cmd they have
learned to write, organize, and
present their speeches with
poise and dignity.
The Latin students learn how
English words are derived.
They also learn many
interesting facts about Rome
and Roman customs. This
course is helpful, since it is
easier for a Latin student
to figure out the meaning of a
word without continuous
In Spanish class the students
learn to write and to speak
Spanish. They also learn about
some of the Spanish customs.
Each student is given a
Spanish name and is
recognized by it-this adds
some spice to the class.
Max Willce seems to be occupied
in helping Mrs. Bird sound out a Latin
phrase. The class appears to be
interesled in the lesson.
Mr. Hunsberger helps Dave Gray,
lulie Walter, and Iohn Norris Write
their names in Spanish.
George Kilander demonstrates the

United States history, world history, and social science keep Wabash
High School students on their toes. There are many facts, dates, and names of
famous people to be remembered. Current events is also a very important
part of the history classes.
For many students math is one of the most difficult subjects studied.
General math, algebra, geometry, advanced algebra, solid geometry, and
trigonometry are the courses offered at Wabash High School. Each is
an individual study in its own right and requires a great deal of concentration

Despite the loss of half his letiermen through graduation,
Coach Tatum had a winning record. Wabash had four wins, two
losses, and one tie.
Meeting Rochester, a highly rated team, the Apaches
went on the warpath and surprised everyone by holding the
Zebras in rein for a scoreless tie.
Lady Luck was riding on Duke Gidley's shoulder during
the 1-iuntington game. With only ten seconds to go in the game,
Gidley soared into the air and tired a pass to lien Miller
who bolted for the touchdown, winning Wabash their first
GLC. game-thirteen to seven.
Plymouth conquered Wabash with an overwhelming ground
attack to win fourteen to thirteen.
The Apaches, defending their goal post from the Peru
Tigers, capitalized on the errors of the Peru team to keep them
scoreless in a nineteen to zero game.
ln the fifth game of the season the unsung heroes of football,
the line, contributed sharp, accurate blocking to help our
swift running back field outscore Warsaw twenty-seven to six.
I. D. Miller, having donned his war paint, thrilled a large
homecoming crowd by scoring a desperately needed point after
the touchdown to defeat Monticello fourteen to thirteen.
An underrated Mississinewa team made use of a fumble
inside Wabash territory to "hit pay dirt" and win Wabash's
final game by a score of thirteen to seven.
Quarterback, Duke Gidley, capitalized on a powerful air attack
to outscore our opponents ninety-three to fifty-three.

Cheerleaders Create Seheel Spirit
"Wabash Apaches! Go! . . .
Fight! . . . Win!" resounds through
the halls of Wabash High School
during a Friday afternoon pep
sesslon. These sessions are carefully
planned by the cheerleaders and
designed to create enthusiasm
among the fans, and to reassure
the team of our confidence in them.
The role of a cheerleader is
indeed an honorable one that entails
many responsibilities. They must
organize the Booster Club, plan pep
sessions, create school spirit, make
certain that good sportsmanship

"B" team cheerleaders for the 1957-58 season were Ann Summerland,
Margo Lockwood, Carol Deckard, and Virginia Duifey.
The "B" team, under the capable direction of Coach
Bob Light, started oft to a slow start: but as the season
progressed they gained confidence and experience
and ended their schedule with a record of six wins and
One strong point of the "B" team was their strong
defensive system which prevented their opponents
Coach Light was pleased with the team as they
improved during the season and showed promise for
gaining berths on the varsity squad next year.
Although the boys had a losing season, they
have gained much from their participation. They have
acquired a sense of fair play and good sportsmanship
which will help them in later years.
These boys should furnish fine material for Coach
Peden for the next several seasons.

Freshman Cheerleaders for the 1957458 season were Icy Leckrone,
Iudy Forrest, lane Ferguson, Mary Snavely.
This year's freshman basketball team had a poor
season: they won only four games while dropping seven.
Coach Austin Holloway groomed the boys for the
competition they will encounter next year in the B and
possibly the varsity teams.
One striking point about the teams was its average
height. If these boys keep growing, their competition
will be in dire need of ladders to guard them.

lhinlies Have a Successful Season
The Apaches had a very successful track
team this year. They won first place in four out
of five of their scheduled meets. The team
also took fourth place in the C.l.C. meet and
had two members qualified for the regional,
Larry Leonard and Bob Cantrell.
Three records were broken this year by
Kenny Miller and Bob Cantrell. Kenny ran
the 120 low hurdles in Zl seconds and
leaped 21 feet and 8V2 inches in the broad
jump. Bob cleared the bar in the pole vault
by ll feet and 4 inches for a new record.
The track team will suffer the loss of Wally
Bahler, Kenny Miller, Larry Layton, and
Max Deeter because of graduation. However,
with the reserve material of undergraduates
Coach Holloway should have a good team
during the year of 1958-59.

Coach Bob Lights net men had a rough
schedule which is shown by their record of
five losses and two wins. Although this
was Mr. Light's first year as coach at Wabash
High, he can be commended for the fine job
he did in teaching the fundamentals to the boys
who will be next year's prospective squad.
Despite a poor showing during the regular
season, the team tied for fifth place in the
Next year should be a different story for
there are many fine boys to fill the shoes

Projects of the Latin Club have been having
candy sales, selling shakers, and sponsoring
an after game dance. Proceeds from these
projects were used to give the annual Roman
banquet. Roman Holiday was the theme of
the banquet. Students came dressed as
various gods and goddesses and honored the
great Caesar and Calpurnia.
Spanish Club met once a month in the
homes of various members. The programs were
based on Spanish themes and were very
unusual. The club strived to have the meetings
informal and enjoyable.

Thespians is an organization that gives

exceptional dramatic ability. ln order to
become a Thespian a student rnust earn 20
pants in the acting, directing, or staging of
a dramatic production. Any student earning

"Yea, rah, Apaches, we're back of you."
This is the cry of the Booster Club, a student
group organized to back the athletic events at
Wabash High School. Black sweaters, white
collars, and white gloves are the distinguishing
attire of the members who pledge themselves
to attend each home game. Regular practice
sessions are held and new yells and routines
are planned, designed to bolster the spirits
of the Apaches and to deflate the ego of the
opponents. Good sportsmanship is the ultimate
purpose of the club.

We didn't start out as old and wise
teen-agers. As freshmen we were "pretty
green." Some of the boys were initiated.
while others escaped this ordeal. Going to
the canteen for the first time was one of
the most exciting events in this new life.
Slumber parties were quite numerous and
always ended with everyone sleeping
the next day. Those were the good old times
when we walked on dates or took our
parents with us.
Our sophomore year found us a little
more wise. Some of us were beginning to
drive cars. In our case we studied less than
any other year and ran around constantly.
As juniors we were quite busy planning
for the junior-senior prom. The theme
was "Sayonara," a Iapanese phrase
meaning "farewell" or "parting of friends."
The prom was held in the Honeywell
This year, our senior year, was very
exciting. Football and basketball games,
aftergame and formal dances, parties,
canteen, senior play, king and queen
elections, exams, baccalaureate and
commencement kept us all very busy. Our
senior play was "Father of the Bride" and
was one of the best plays ever produced
Baccalaureate and commencement were
both the beginning and end for us. Some
of us will be answering our occupational
interests in college or at jobs, while others
will be planning their own homes.
After going to school with each other
for twelve long but enjoyable years we
now go our separate ways.
