that world is to continue to exist, we must unite
for the common good of all the peoples of the

CLASS OF 1946
As sophomores, we cameg as juniors, we saw: as seniors, we con-
As we came to school those -first few weeks of our sophomore year,
there was a definite period of adjustment when we were trying to adapt
ourselves to Gentral's endless and frightening number of halls, class-
rooms, teachers, and upperclassmen. However, we soon felt enough at
home to organize and elect the following ofiicers: Phil Bayless, president,
Ed Ebrite, vice-president: Mary Lou Madill, secretary: Barbara Henman,
treasurer. The main event of that first year was a big dance and games
party at the end of the first semester. During the spring semester, we
held a heated campaign to elect our junior officers, and a second vote
was required to select the winners.
We saw ourselves ready to begin work in our junior year under
the direction of our officers: Dick Beeson, president: Hubert Austin,
vice-president: Naomi Fisher, secretary: Juanita Jones, treasurer, On
November 2, we made our first contribution to Central's social life
with a lively all-school dance. We also gathered in the auditorium to
hear Inge Blumenthal, a German-Jewish refugee, talk about her life
in Nazi Germany, and to see 'Bubbles Concerto." hBrother Goose,"
with a brilliant cast, was the play given during the second semester by
The 1946 Magician
the junior dramatics class. We entertained the mighty seniors in May
with the annual prom at the Masonic Temple. In the midst of all this
activity, we still took time out to elect our oflicers for the Hnal year in
We have certainly conquered this year, for here we are ready to
graduate after a very busy one. Among the busiest have been our of-
ficers, led by Burl Keys, senior president. Serving with him were Don
Grundy, vice-president: Naomi Fisher, secretaryg Juanita Jones, treas-
urer. We started the year out with a flourish as we ordered our class
jewelry, our name cards, and our invitations. The annual senior dance
was held in December, and following in rapid succession were the Senior
Career Conference days, the formal senior ball, and College Conference
Day. This year we were the honored guests at the annual Junior-Senior
Prom. And then all those pre-commencement activities required another
deep breath. Finally, the symbol of our conquest . . . that diploma!
Working with us during our period of arrival, sightseeing, and con-
quest, have been our class sponsors. Mrs, Helen Pennington, the chair-
man of sponsors, took over the job during our sophomore year when
Mrs. Gladys Townsend Hoan resigned as a Central teacher. She has
managed to Weather the tempests and endure the calms which have oc-
curred during our three years, Miss Ella Hollenback has guided our
social destiny in her work as social sponsor, while Paul E. Carmichael
has kept us balanced in monetary matters as financial sponsor.

The 194 6 Magfc1'an
Veterans of World War ll
Seniors of 1946 are more than proud, we are also honored, to be members of the same class
which includes the first veterans of World War II who have chosen to complete their high
school work by correspondence or enrollment at Central. While the rest of us were spending
the last few years in the class room, these fellows were doing work of quite another sort. So
their senior reports are those prized possessions, their service records.

The yearlings at Central High started their activities by choosing council
members who, in turn, elected the officers for the year. Activities for the
semester were planned by a social committee headed by Betty Jones and a
convocations committee headed by Pat Phillips. Other committees were
named during the year.
On December 14, the sophomores and juniors combined to sponsor the
appearance of Eiffel G. Plasterer of Huntington, the originator of the i'Bubbles
Concerto." During the winter the class was also the guest of Gibsons Ice
Arena for a skating party which had its ups and downs. The spring term
party-nights with skating and dancing were enjoyed by class members. A
special motion picture show was presented at a class convocation. Several
other programs were also held.
Edward Olsen is chairman of sponsors for the class. Miss Helen Morri-
son is financial sponsor. Miss Lucille Johnson, dean of girls, has assisted
with the social activities.

H. B. ALLMAN
1936, who resigned to
become director of sum-
mer sessions at Indiana
University, effective Feb-
ruary 16, 1946.
Muncie heard with regret of the resignation of Mr. Allman, who has made
a very real place for himself in the life of our city. During his thirty-five years
in teaching he has demonstrated that he is a capable executive and his new post
will enable him to further still more the cause of education in Indiana. The
appointment of Mr. Shaffer, the friendly and popular Central High School
principal, to the post of superintendent was deserved recognition of his work
as a schoolman.
To Mr. Allman, Central students and teachers extend best wishes for his
success in his new position. To Mr. Shaffer, Central students and teachers offer
congratulations on his appointment but regret that he will no longer be in such
close contact with us.

High School since 1937,

When Mr. Shaffer was named the new
superintendent of Muncie schools, the board
of education chose as his successor Earl Peck-
inpaugh, principal of Roosevelt School.
Coming to Muncie in 1935, Mr. Peckinpaugh
was first named social science instructor and
coach at Wilson Junior High, where he served
for eleven years. Then he was moved to
Roosevelt, a position he had held for the past
nine years. Since he joined the'Muncie schools,
he has also served as assistant coach of the
Bearcat football squad.
Born in Delaware county, Mr. Peckin-
paugh attended the Mt. Summit school,
Spiceland Academy, and was graduated from
New Castle High School, He attended Indi-
ana University, from which he received a
Bachelor of Arts degree. While in college he
participated in four major sports: football,
basketball, wrestling, and baseball.
Following graduation he was a coach and
physical education instructor in Minneapolis.
He entered the army as a private at the out-
break of World War 1, later serving overseas
in all grades from private to captain. He re-
mained in the army until 1929 and during
three years of that time he was instructor in
the infantry school at Port Benning, Ga. In
1924 he was graduated from the field artillery
school at Fort Sill, Okla. Four years were
spent as assistant professor of military science
and tactics at Iowa State College. Before
leaving military service he was also stationed
in Hawaii and on the Pacific coast.
After his discharge, Mr. Peckinpaugh went
back to college before accepting a position as
principal of the Sulphur Springs High School.
By 1934 he had completed work on his Mas-
ter of Arts degree in education at Indiana
University. The following year he came to
Central students and teachers welcome Mr.
Peckinpaugh to his new position as head of

This year Central is proud to welcome many of her former students who interrupted their
schooling to answer the call of their country to serve in the Army, Navy. Marines, or Coast
Guard. Having served with distinction and honor in the four corners of the world, these veterans
have now returned to Central's classrooms to complete their work for graduation, to take post-
graduate Work before going on to college, or to take special trade courses to fit themselves for a
particular job in industry or business. Several hundred more still in service have written to ask
what they will need to complete their educational requirements.
Some of these veterans have elected to complete their work at Central, participating in the
regular high school courses so that they may benefit from the classroom associations and class
discussions. Others have chosen to take part of their work at Central and part at the Trade
School, where they may be enrolled in auto mechanics, drafting, electricity, and radio, building
trades, machine shop, or printing.
Another group is enrolled at the Trade School to take all-day courses in one particular
trade, the goal being the achievement of sufficient skills and knowledge to enable them to go out
into industry and hold jobs as competent wage earners. Muncie industries are cooperating with
this phase of the special work in order that these men may be placed successfully when they finish
A new department has been added to Central's broad educational Held, the Veterans lnstitute,
a special section based on the plan of individual study. Located at the Trade School, the institute
has been set up to provide a way for the veteran to select and master quickly the subjects needed
to complete his high school education, doing this in an "all-veteran" atmosphere, ln a few
weeks or months, depending on the amount of work required and the time spent, the veteran may
earn the required credits. Approximately half of the veterans in Central are participating in this
plan which allows them to complete their work in less time than would normally be required
in the regular high school program.
The staff of this new department consists of H. F. Brickley, supervisor of adult education:
K. L. Atchley. veterans counselor: W. M. Wampler. social studies and ljnglish supervisor:
G. L. Alexander. mathematics and natural science supervisor. Three are veterans of World
War ll, while Mr. Brickley was loaned by the city schools to the office of the state supervisor of
vocational education. ln this work Mr. Brickley aided greatly in the administration of the war
production training program in Indiana.
Mr. Atchley, a lieutenant colonel in the Air Corps during the war, served in England with
the Eighth Air Force as commanding officer of a sub-depot squadron and as a base engineering
ofiicer. Mr, Alexander, a navy lieutenant, was with the Fleet Training Command of the Seventh
Fleet as instructor in anti-submarine warfare. Later he was in charge of the Fleet Training
Center at Guiuan Samar in the Philippines. Mr. Wampler, a captain in the Air Corps, served
with the 33rd Fighter Group at Burma, India, as a squadron executive officer and radar observer.
He later acted as supervisor of the ground training school at this base.
Central is honored to present this group of her war veterans who have served so nobly in
World XVar ll.

Last fall the Science Club was reorganized after a lapse of sev-
eral years, The purpose of the organization is threefold: to in-
crease the interest in science among students, to afford opportunity
for presentation of scientific topics, to widen the individual's field
of scientific thought. Members are drawn from the physics and
chemistry classes which alternate in presenting programs for the
meetings held the first and third Tuesdays of each month. An
interesting variety has been given this year.

Last year the Wesley C. Pierce chapter of Quill and Scroll was organized at
Central to honor those students most interested in journalism. It is an inter-
national fraternity for high school journalists with chapters all over the world.
Students eligible for the organization must have been enrolled in the news-
writing course, must be in the upper third of the junior or senior class, must be
recommended by the sponsor and approved by the members, and must have a
certain grade average for the previous semester.
A feature of the annual banquet is the formal initiation of new pledges.
Eight girls became members at the affair held in April this year. Other social
and business meetings are also held, meetings being regularly scheduled for

Seniors who were interested in dramatics-acting, stagecraft, costumes,
make-up, or any other phase of the work-had an opportunity to join the senior
dramatics class offered during the Hrst semester, The principal job of the class
was to select and produce the annual senior play,
Being members of the Class of 1946, the group departed from the usual
type of high school production by selecting 'Pride and Prejudice." With its
setting in the easly l800's, the adaptation of the famous Jane Austen novel in-
volved many unusual problems of costumes, furniture, and make-up. The
mannerisms of the period had to be faithfully copied. The large cast was assisted
by committees responsible for costumes, sets, make-up, and prompting. The
players appeared in two performances on December 6 and 7 to the delight and
appreciation of large audiences.
Members of the cast included Betty Zetterberg, Don Fields, Mary Joan
Sheridan, Wanda Hier, Madonna Smock, Florence Hardwick, Jane Jackson,
Rosemary Armstrong, Joanna Potts, Pat Thomas, Martha Banta, and Carmen
Vyain. Also appearing in roles were Hubert Austin, Dick Herbert, and Dale
Fowler, who were not members of the class.
"Accent On Revenge" and "His First Girl," two one-act plays, were given
in an after-school show later in the semester. Members of the class agreed that
they had spent a busy and profitable eighteen weeks.
The 1946 Maqzcrun
During the second semester the juniors took over dramatic activities around
Central as thirty-five of them enrolled for the junior dramatics class. They gave

Among the head men on Central's coach-
ing staff is Ettore Antonini, who became
chief football mentor when Walter H. Fisher
retired as football coach to devote all his time
,to directing physical education activities in
the city schools. Mr. Antonini, formerly
assistant coach, made a good record in his
first year as head man. His well-coached boys
annexed the North Central Conference cham-
pionship again. ln his spare time he also
coaches the wrestling team, which placed sec-
ond in the state meet.
A World War II veteran, Mel Wilson has
returned to the coaching staff as head track
man after serving with the U. S. Navy since
1943. Upon enlisting Ensign Wilson was
sent to Dartmouth College for endoctrina-
tiong from there he went to a naval training
school, then to Princeton, and finally to an
amphibious training base at Little Creek, Va.
Later he sailed from San Francisco for Milne
Bay, New Guinea, where he spent eight
months at various coastal points. Lt. Wilson
was in Leyte, the Philippines, for a year and
before his discharge in February, l946. was
in Yokohama and Tokyo.
Carl Adams, who took over the direction
of the Bearkitten squad this year, is Coach
Beckner's associate in basketball. He had a
very successful year as the Kittens lost very
few games. Mr. Adams, now a teacher at
McKinley, received his AB. degree from
Wabash College and later studied at Ball
State, and Purdue. He has taught at Ander-
son, Rosstown, and Delphi. This spring he
assumed command of the Bearcat baseball
squad. He was assisted by James Hyatt of
the social science department. At Delphi he
was basketball, track, and baseball coach.
The 1946 Magician
ARTHUR E. BECKNER
Art Beckner, who completes his third year
as basketball coach, retained the sectional title
for the second consecutive year. A former
Bearcat himself, he saw his team rise to su-
preme heights in the regional tournament in
the game with New Castle that went into a
triple-overtime. He is already mapping his
strategy for next season with a team losing
only three members by graduation. In the
spring Mr. Beckner's coaching job is to direct
the spring practice for the hardwood warriors
of the coming year.
Dale Miller, another veteran of World
War II, was in the U. S. Army from l942
to l945. He saw action in the South Pa-
cific. Mr. Miller, a graduate of Clinton High
School, played four years of basketball there
and was quarterback on the school's state
championship football squad. While attend-
ing Ball State, Mr. Miller played quarterback
three years on the Cardinal football team.
After graduation he went to the Knights-
town Soldiers' and Sailors' Home where he
coached an undefeated football squad in
1941. After his discharge from the service
he became assistant football coach and direc-
tor of intramural athletics.
CLIFFORD J. QUINLAN
ln his second year as a member of the
Central faculty, Clifford Quinlan acted as an-
other assistant to Coach Antonini in direct-
ing the football team. ln the U. S. Army
from l942 to 1945, Mr. Quinlan served as a
physical education instructor. His college
training was received at Georgetown where
he played football for three years. He also
attended Duke University to work on his
master's degree. His teaching experience in-
cludes work at Cleveland, as R. O. T. C. in-
structor at George Washington High School
of Indianapolis, and at the University of
Akron at Akron, Ohio.

They Did It Again
Ho-hum! The Bearcats made it six-in-a-row by annexing the North Cen-
tral Conference championship again this year. Two hundred and Hfty-seven
points were piled up by the Purple and White, while the opposing teams were
scoring fifty-seven. The average number of Bearcat points per game was more
than twenty-eight, compared with the slightly more than six tallied by their
opponents. Quite a record, we'd say!
The Bearcats opened their season with the powerful Fort Wayne Central
team by winning the game, 19 to 13. Fort Wayne seemed certain to win by a
one-point margin until the closing minutes when Joe Dooley ran eighty-three
yards for a touchdown and turned defeat into victory. In their first out-of-town
game, the Cats made their official bid for another North Central championship
by whipping the Anderson Indians, 14 to 6. The Purple and White touch-
downs were made possible by a charging line that completely outplayed the
Anderson forward wall. In the last period they made a fifty-eight-yard drive,
climaxed by Louie Briggs' twelve-yard smash for a touchdown.
Continuing their string of victories, the Central eleven defeated Westville,
Ill., 32 to 0. Coach Ettore Antonini used three different teams during the game.
As the game ended the third team, composed chiefly of sophomores, was pushing
the Westville boys back against their well-trampled goal line, Gibson charged
eighteen yards through the entire Westville team for the last touchdown.
In the next game Tech of Indianapolis bit the dust in a 27-to-6 defeat.
Although the Cats were unable to score during the first quarter, and made only
one touchdown in the second, they crossed that double line twice during the
third. In the final round the Big Green attempted a pass from behind their own
goal line, only to have it intercepted on their fifteen-yard stripe by Gene Dance,
who crossed the marker for the final tally,
Central's fifth victory was won over the Marion Giants, 36 to O. The team
was led by Joe Dooley, left halfback, who put across four touchdowns in an
amazing display of speed. A reserve halfback, Gene Wojack, showed fleetness
when he carried the ball for a sixty-live-yard touchdown. Still marching along
undefeated, the Cats turned Bloomington away with a 46-to-12 score. LaDuron
scored the final touchdown from the two-yard line.

The Purple and White eleven scored 46

Joe Dooley contributed three touchdowns
with jaunts of sixty-three, nine, and two
yards. Louie Briggs plunged over from the
four- and the two-yard lines to score twice
more, Twelve additional points were added
by Marion Gibson in line smashes deep within
Giant territory. Gene Dance sneaked over
from the two-yard line, and then Paul George
made a twenty-four-yard pass to Rex Leeka
for the final points.
The winning string of the New Castle Tro-
jans was snapped by the Cats to the tune of
25 to 7. It was the eighth consecutive tri-
umph for the boys. In the first few minutes
of the game, the locals were thrown back to
their own Hcoflin-corner," but they recovered
with an eighty-yard run by Joe Dooley. The
Trojans were held scoreless until the closing
minutes of the game, while Marion Gibson
made the final score for the Cats. Since this
game wound up our conference play, the Cen-
tral team was assured of retaining the North
Central Conference championship once again.

The Bearcats brought the season to a thrill-
ing climax in the final garne, a scoreless tie,
played before more than eight thousand Mun-
cie fans. They tangled with Washington of
South Bend, another powerful high school
aggregation with a line that greatly out-
weighed the Cats' line, Each team launched
drives which penetrated deep into scoring ter-
ritory but the line always held., In the final
minutes, the Bearcats were four yards from
the Washington goal line, but were unable
to push across for the score.
The 194 6 Magician
That scoreless tie ended a beautiful season
of football, one with eight victories and no
defeats. The Bearcats played outstanding ball
and were awarded third place in the state line-
up by the Indiana sportswriters. Central
players to receive state recognition included
Captain Don Wood, all-state tackle: Co-
Captain Elwood Wegesin, all-state guard,
Ray Reason, all-state guard: Charles Spence,
all-state end. Honorary mention was given
to Joe Dooley, halfback.

The Bearcats had a good season in spite
of that old one-point jinx which dogged
them all year, Five games lost by a single
pcint were chalked up in the season. The
heartbreaker of them all was that regional
game with the Richmond Red Devils, lost by
one lone tally. Just that afternoon a two-
point margin was held by the Cats in the
thrilling triple-overtime game with New
The team started the season playing Union
City in a game which was a battle all the way.

never in danger.
The Purple and Wluite marked up their
third victory in as many starts and the first
in North Central competition hy next lick-
ing Frankfort, '50 to 25. The game was
close and rough all the way. The following
week the Central boys handed the Richmond
Blue Devils a 39-to-'55 defeat for the fourth
straight victory and second North Central
win. The Red Devils threatened the Cats in
the fourth quarter but failed to garner enough
points to down them.
Central was handed its first defeat on De-
cember l'n by the Anderson lndians in a
thrilling game played at the Field House. The
Bearcats led all the way until in the last few
seconds when a pass was stolen by lanky
Johnny Vxfilson. who scored the winning
goal. The Bearcats lost. 'JO to 29, that one-

of the hardwood warriors in a closely contested match, 37 to 33.
The next evening the locals met the old one-pointer again, being
defeated by Shelbyville, 28 to 27.
The third defeat for the Centralites was handed to them by the
New Castle Trojans who took the long end of a 37-to-33 score.
The boys had plenty of shots but couldn't make them stay in the
bucket. They were still in a slump when Kokomo handed them
a 36-to-29 defeat a few days later. The year ended with the
holiday tourney held for the Grst time on the Saturday before
The Cats were whipped, 52 to 2l, by Fort Wayne Central,
while Richmond beat Marion, 38 to 35. ln the consolation game,
Marion downed the Cats, 36 to 35. another one-pointer lost in
an overtime game. Richmond, in the meantime. upset Fort Wayne,
40 to 21.
On January 9, the Centralites started out the New Year by
defeating Marion, 43 to 27. Three days later they traveled to
Fort Wayne Central, where they were set back, 5l to 39. Tipton
gave the Cats some bad moments in the third period but the Cats
maintained their margin. The boys added another victory by de-
feating the Blue Devils to the tune of 45 to 36.
The Bearcats were cracked in the last minute and a half of the
next game by JeHf of Lafayette, losing, 38 to 33. The game was a
real thriller all the way. Then they headed for Anderson to avenge
the one-point loss handed them in December, They tried hard
but victory wasn't theirs, for Anderson scored 3l points to their 21.
The inspired Hartford City Airedales upset the boys with a
free throw from the charity line to win another of those one-

Central boys were back in the winning column when they held
Tech of Indianapolis to two Held goals in the last half. They took
that encounter by a 40-to-30 score.
New Castle leaped to a tremendous lead in the opening minutes
of the next game but the Cats found themselves in time to avert a
threatened walkaway. However. they failed to halt completely
their opponents' victory march to a 40-tof34 Iinish. The Hnal
game of the regular season was played on the home floor against
Richmond. The locals fought the invaders for three quarters but
the pressure was too great and they lost, 48 to 3 l.
The Bearcats really came back with a bang for the sectional 1
tournament when they held Cowan. their first opponent. to three
field baskets during the entire game, which ended with a 33-to-l9
score. The Cats overcame Burris by a 32-to-24 victory. and then
whipped Yorktown, 46 to 26. They retained the sectional crown
by defeating Royerton in the final game, 46 to 36.
One of the greatest battles ever fought on any court in any
season was the triple-overtime game in the regional tourney the
next week. After some of the most spectacular ball playing ever
done by Bearcats, the Muncie quintet finally downed New Castle,
37 to 35. They were a tired bunch of boys when they took the
floor against Richmond that evening but they fought hard and
maintained a lead throughout most of the game. With only two
minutes to play, Richmond sent in the ailing Bruck who proceeded
to score four points to tie up the ball game, 32 to 31. That one-
point jinx was working overtime that evening.

This year's Bearkittens were the toughest in many seasons, They were
coached by Carl Adams, who used a Newton-Ohlemacher-DeVoe-Robling-Cmoen
combination with deadly effect. The Kittens won fourteen games, losing only
three. They also took an invitational tournament held during January at the
Field House. Their first loss came January 5 at Anderson, after Bob Newton
had been moved up to the Cat squad. The only other losses were to New Castle
Coach Adams' boys scored 491 points to their opponents' 360, an average
of more than twenty-nine points per game, to their opponents' twenty-one. The

set back came from Roosevelt of East Chicago. Three of the squads encountered
during the year failed to score against the Bearcats.

The 1946 Magzczan
One of the newer activities about Central, begun early in December by a
group of interested students led by Monnie Martens, resulted in the formation
of the "Alley Cats," under the direction of Harold V. Anderson, dean of boys,
and Neil W. Daily, business education teacher. Games are rolled each Wednes-
day after school at the Hotel Roberts alleys.
More than thirty-five students and faculty members have participated regu-
larly in this activity. At first, class teams were formed, but because so many of
the keglers obtained after-school jobs, individual bowling was adopted. Other
faculty members who bowl with the group are Carl Humphrey and Robert
All juniors, seniors, and faculty members who rolled at least ten games prior

ing the right to name the Queen of the Relays. Maryl,ou Puterbaugh received
the title, and runners-up who served as her attendants and aided in the distribu-
tion of prizes included Peggy Harvey, Nancy Marvin, and Sally Ream.

Fifteen veterans from last year's outfit reported when the spring call for
baseball was announced. The holdovers were Joe Dooley, John Hampton,
Denver Wooten, Burl Keys, Bob Ross, Gene McDonald, Don Grundy, Max
Jordan, Charles Swathwood, Louis Briggs, Marion Gibson, Wayne Kelley,
James Reed, Dick Smekens, and Fred Robling.
Because of the need for spring basketball practice under the direction of Coach
Art Beckner, the baseball team was put under the guidance of Coach Carl Adams,
