We, a group of thirty-nine eager students, became eli-
gible for the annual nine months tournaments in the fall of
19145. Although we were the smallest class enrolled in the
tournament and have remained so for the past four years, we
managed to survive the first year with a few victories in
basketball, a few more parties, and even more representa-
tives on Honor Club.
The next year we returned with a few losses and a few
new additions. We lost Betty Smith and Zack Miles. Our new
additions were Clarice Clunie, Helen Mclntire, and Bob
In our third and next most important year in the tour-
naments, many new people joined us: Bill Condit, Pat Bristow
Chester Sherrow, Jack Agee, and Dick Fallowfield. During
this year we carried out many class projects such as a maga-
zine sale, Inter-Class Tourney, and dances after basketball
games in order to make money for the prom. On May 21, l9h8,
we held our Junior and Senior Prom at the Antlers Hotel, the
first occasion of its being held outside of school.
Finally in our last and most important year, we return-
ed to find that we had to make even more money than the year
before. Everyone set to work selling greeting cards, pecans,
notebooks, and giving bake sales, a play, and dances. Now,
the same number as when we started out are about ready to
graduate from this yearly competition and go into a life
of even keener competition.

We invite you to take a journey with us into the past, into the time when chivalry
was at its best, and knighthood was in full bloom. A touch of the magic wand
before the palace of His Majesty,
the King of England. The time is 114119.

On the way,the King dictates to Donna Brinkman, his capable secretary. The letter is
to Chester Sherrow, the over-seer of His Majesty's vast estates. At last they arrive at
the arena where Joe Krug and George Kuykendall show them to their seats of honor. Before
the sports begin, Pat Bristow can be seen giving a few lusty cheers for her champion in
A trumpet blasts and in ride John Wise, Don Challis, and Ted Tansy dressed in black
armour trimmed with gold. Swords in hand, they meet the enemy confidently. James Bailey,
Bill Condit, and Bud Switzer, their opponents, are not frightened by their bold front, and
the battle begins in earnest. Kenny Deane, Sir Challis' attendant, rushes to the field to
aid his wounded master. The odds are uneven, and Bob Rasner is prepared to second for his
wounded friend. A horn is heard and the knights return to their tents to re-arm and rest.
Entertainment is provided for the King and Queen by Betty Moneymaker, Clarice Clunie,
and Judy Schroeder who sing some lively ballads. Richard Pierson presents the King with
a magnificent bracelet made of gold and precious jewels which he brought back with him on
his last trip to China. Just then, the Queen spies Nancy Rutledge and bids her to tell her
of the latest news from London. Nancy tells of seeing Bernice Clark, the first woman to

The sport events are soon resumed and the crowd ohs and ahs as Ted Tansy slays his
opponents one by one. At last he is victorious. The crowd cheers while he rides up to the
grandstand to receive his award from his Lady Fair, Margie Basso.
As the crowd makes its way out of the jammed arena, Lillian Petac can be seen with
her nose in a scroll taking notes on the day's excitement. Beside Lillian is her artist
friend, Joellen Sigman, who has vividly taken down a picture of the struggle.
The royal couple hurry back to the castle to prepare for the large victory ball to be
the first to arrive. Everyone was excited for this ball was to bring to a close the most
important event of the year--the tournament. The court clown, Don Wilson, had been in-
structed to be at his best. A famous magician, Neal Parmentar, had been hired to add to
the performance. Ruthie Hughes and Ronald Schoo, world renown dancers, were to liven the
party with their graceful steps. The castle was alive with bright lights and gay voices.
As we leave and return to our modern world, we see Marilyn Hein, Joan Smiley, and Lavon
Weingardt descend the wide stairway dressed in the latest fashions.
A whisk of the magic wand and we can only remember the wonderful things we have seen
and look forward to the future.

The Fall of 19148 saw the beginning of an unexperienced team take place. Early August
brought thirty-five boys on the athletic field for passing, kicking, blocking, and working,
on fundamentals. These boys, awkward at first, began to show great improvement after a
few weeks of hard work. Under the instruction of coaches Virgil Riley and Earl Overman,
they began to look like a football team.
September came at last, and the team, now consisting of twenty-nine boys, was thinking
about their first game. llanual of Indianapolis was the first opponent. The Hornets played
their best, but Manual emerged as victor by a score of ho to 0.
The nert game found the Hornets at Franklin Township's field. The game proved to be ex-
citing. John Wise carried the ball in the second quarter for the first touchdown of the
season. Don Carey tried for the extra point, but was stopped. Franklin came back before
the half to score. However, they failed to gain the conversion. Ralph Cingo plunged over
the line in the fourth quarter to score again. With the aid of the linemen Ralph went
over for our exra point. The game ended in a 13-6 triumphant for the Hornets.
Beech Grove continued their winning streak by beating Sacred Heart 6-0. Ralph Cingo
gained these six points for the team by a hard line plunge. Beech Grove vs. Bicknell was
the next game. Bicknell won by their experience with a score of 26-0. Iarren Central and
Pike Township 'were the next two teams they played. The Hornets dropped both these games
with the scores of 321-0 and 12-0 respectively.
The County Champions from last year, Speedway, was our next opponent on the grid iron.
The Sparkplugs proved too much for the Hornets and beet them 26-6. The season was moving
on rapidly, and the next two encounters were with the Silent Hoosiers and Ben Davis. The
Silent Hoosiers managed to get away with a 21-19 victory. Henson, Cingo, and Carey gained
the nineteen points for Beech Grove. The Ben Davis game ended in a 13 to 13 tie with Hen-
son and Carey scoring for Beech Grove.
The last game of the season showed good sportsmanship on the part of both teams, al-
though 'the game ended in a bl-0 victory for Lawrence Central.
'Iwo banquets were given at the end of the season, one by the Mothers, and one by the
Lions Club, in appreciation of the good sportsmanship presented by the team. Ted Tansy,
Kenny Deane, and Bill Condit were chosen to attend a banquet given by Indiana University
which was attended by senior football players from all Marion County High Schools.
With only five varsity Hornets graduating from the team this year, and with many new
prospects coming up, we hope for an even better season next year.
