Paul Kelsay, to Mr. Milton Harke, and to the staff mem- bers a very sincere note of thanks. We have attempted in this book to give you more than a plain, unvarnished history of this year at Washington-Clay High School.

As freshmen, we excelled in forming plans, few of which were ever carried past the beginning stages, but served to distinguish our class as one which was to become famous. Sponsors during our freshman year were Mr. Harke, Miss Reed, and Miss Johnston. Officers were: Jack Harrison, presidentg George Walsh, vice-president, Charles Helmen, secretary, and Barbara Sechrist, treasurer. Becoming more active in our sophomore year, we sponsored a noon movie, held a class party, and produced the play of the century, 'Make Room for Rodney." Sponsors during our sophomore year were Mr. Mark, Mr. Rogers, and Miss Dearing. Officers were: Marjorie Hosler, president, Clarence Hill, vice-presidentg Anne Green, secretary, and Betty Lou Brown, treasurer. Our junior year was begun with the presentation of a dance, 'The Harvest Hop." Financial matters entered into the picture at this time and we embarked on a maga- zine subscription campaign with the seniors as opponents. Who were victorious? Why, the juniors, naturally. In the early part of May we produced our class play, 'june Mad which will undoubtedly go down into history as the greatest production ever to grace the stage at Washington-Clay. Taking leading parts in the double cast were George Walsh and Patricia Romine in one and Charles Strom and Betty Lou Brown in the other. The junior-Senior Prom was presented May 19 with music by Myron Walz and his Orchestra. An unforgetable event, it was truly a grand climax to our junior year. Sponsors during our junior year were Mr. Mark, Mr. Rogers, and Miss Dearing. Officers were: Marjorie Hosler, presidentg Richard Asire, vice-presidentg Anne Green, secretary, and Elnora Izdepski, treasurer. Destined to be the first peace-time graduating class since the spring of 1941 we entered Washington-Clay for the last time in the fall of 1945. We were now mighty and brilliant seniors or so we told ourselves. We began the year with the presenta- tion of the 7th Annual Sweater Hop with Bud Simpson and his Orchestra as music makers. The sponsors during our senior year were Mr. Rogers and Mrs. Zeiger. Officers were: Eugene Wilson, president, Charles Helmen, vice-president, George Walsh, secretary, Phyllis Galvas, treasurerg and Richard Asire, Sgt. at Arms. Donning our dark glasses at the beginning of the year we sold schedule pencils realizing quite a profit. Later in the year a carnival was presented under the sponsorhip'of the P.T.A. and the senior class. April 26 we departed for parts unknown in the annual skip day. May ,was undoubtedly a climax for our high school career. May 15 we presented our class play, 'Our Townng May 18 we attended the Iunior-Senior Prom which featured Bud Simpson, May 24...the night of all nights...finis for the class of 1946...

HLETJC 1N'rRo.ouc':'1oN Coaches Hershel Eaton and Hubert Blair Washington-Clay's athletic department headed by Herschel Eaton and Huh ert Blair has .formulated three definite goals for its athletic program. They are: to aid physical and mental developmentg to cultivate sportsmanshipg and to provide an organ ized system of recreation. To achieve these goals, an extensive intermural and intra- mural program was established offering an opportunity to participate in athletics to a large number of students. Aiding this program is the physical education department which offers an identical program to those who are unable to participate in either the intermural or intramural programs. This program has thus far proved most success- ful and should continue to aid students in the future.

S, R Washington-Clay's Colonials experienced a disappointing season in 1946. Hot on one occasion, they toppled some of the most formid- able opponents. Cold on another occasion, they were upset by some , of the conference's weaker teams. The complete record lists eight ' victories and ten defeats. All eight victories were scored over con- ference opponents while six defeats were dealt by non conference quintets. - The varsity consisted of veterans Larry Heckaman, Paul Womack, jerry Haney, Dick Asire, Harold Asire, George Walsh, and newcomer Russell Huss, a Bee team mem- ' ber as of last season. Alternates on the varsity were Richard Brown, Kenny Butterbaugh, Bert Reader, Don Cornwell, Kenny Call, and Ralph Thompson, all members of the Bee squad. h Russell Hiiss led scorers with Dick Asire second and Larry Heckaman third.

The season opened April 4 and continued through the latter - part of May during which both conference and non-conference opponents were met. The schedule included contests with Woodrow Wilson, Buchanan, Central Catholic, Laporte, and Middlebury.

Colonial track teams have dominated the conference for the last five years capturing the track championship with clocklike regularity. Over twenty-five boys reported for practice at the opening of the season, ten of whom were monogram winners last year. The track season began April 18 continuing through May and in- cluding opponents such as Mishawaka, Central, Adams, Niles, Riley, and the eight conference opponents, Madison, Greene, New Carlisle, Woodrow Wilson, Walkerton, Lakeville, and North Liberty.

Edited by Edwin L. Bates, the "Colonial," came out Patricia Romine, Business Manager, and Edwin Bates, Editor-in-Chief g with both interesting and accurate articles, promoted school projects, and served as an outlet for student opinion. ' The "Colonial" featured columns dealing with everything from the proverbial cabbages to kings. In the student opinion department, "What's Your Opinion" written by genial inquisitive Betty Lindstaedt, quizzed students on current ques' tions of school and national impor- tance. 'Nibbles by"Nora' produced by Elnora lzdepski featured topics from the county tournament to life in Wisconsin or whatever appealed to the columnist at the particular moment. Managing the paper's most popular column or the keyhole. department was Mildred Minnis who specialized in putting into print the things that you thought were secret.

Deadlines have been met, the photographer is resting quietly, and the sounds of groans from the staff have passed into muffled sighs. This, the 1946 edition of the Minuteman, was edited by Elnora Izdepski and james Holton, 'managed by Patricia Romine, and printed by the Uni- versity Lithoprinters of Ypsilanti, Michigan.

Mr. Francis Ernst served as Co-editors Elnora Izdepski and James Holton sponsor and director. This annual includes several new features seldom found in high school amiuals. One of them is the last section in the book which we called The Year. It combines the calendar with photographs and is the child of humor editors jack Rager and Noel Wiggins. It is designed pri- marily as a photo- graphic review of the year at Wash- ington-Clay. An- other innovation was the addition of a pictoral section of Washington-C lay as a school, of its buildings and its classes. Included in this annual were pictures of all club officers and clubs. The athletic section was broadened to include a short sum- mary of the seasons athletics, individual pictures of the play- ers, and statistics. You may notice the abundance of pictures in this an- nual and the lack of written material. In the belief that an annual should be pri- marily pictures and that written material was supplementary we had this book printed by a new process, that of lithoprinting. This method encour- ages the use of pic- tures without the added expense of individual cuts. This book has undoubtedly seen much of the United States before arriv- ing at Washington- Clay.
