flew- 'osiiymd, AT NAPPANEE HIGH SCHOOL NAPPANEE - INDIANANAMAMEE NI6H SCHMk Four years ago, ivhile Freshman, we looked toward a seemingly distant horizon called graduation. Wc have now reached that horizon. We have reached the first step in this world of ever advancing horizons. To the fact that we have so successfully achieved this first goal, and to the hope and the expectation of reaching our future goals in the same manner, we the Class of 1943 dedicate this annual to all who will share with us the enjoyments and satisfactions of reaching the newer, greater, and even more worth while horizons of the future.We, as Americans, are making sacrifices today in order that democracy might be preserved. It is quite natural that, in times like these, we become more aivare of what demorcracy means to us. Democracy, to an American, is not just a word; nor even just a form of government. It is a way of living; an ideal which is constantly being perfected. W ithin these halls of learning we have taken one of the first major steps toward the perfecting of this ideal. By gaining an education today we shall become better citizens in the world of tomorrow. And so in our school we have received not only training in ways of making a living and building character but also training in democratic living. This book is a record of the fun we have had and the things we have done. It shows what we have achieved in our school life. And it also shows that during our school years we have been working together in a democratic manner. This book is then, not only a record of events, but also a symbol of achievement—and a symbol of democracy. HERMAN SCHULER (Dutch) Dutch was the first member of the faculty to enter the armed forces. He is the well known former baseball and basketball coach of Nap-panee, who is now doing his best to “Keep ’em Flying.” GAIL GRABILL Mr. Grabill is the former tennis coach and Industrial Arts teacher in Nappanee High School. WAYNE (Beef) BEST Beef was last year’s basketball coach and a former basketball star of Nappanee High School. He taught History and Government and is the only former faculty member who has been stationed overseas.1942 Richard Counts Lowell Gardner Willard Hoover Hobart Johnston Raymond Kern Ora Stout Bill Webster James Martin 1941 Richard Avenmarg LaMar Clouse Harold Copsey Tom Housouer Lowell McCuen LaMar Metzler Mervin Miller Bill Muntz James Osborne Richard Pippen John Richmond Kollan Sponseller Bernard Stouder Frederick Strang Robert Stump Oliver Stutzman Gerald Thomas Max Weaver Thomas Wegmiller Wilfred Wise Robert Yarian 1940 Robert Arnott Richard Best Carl Rougher Jack Byers David Coppes Wade Culp Joe Dunnuck Ross Gwin John William Gonser Devon Hall Ralph Hollar Donald Johnston Delbert Mellinger Norman Metzler Willard Miller Carlyle Moore Alonzo Nicodemus 1940 (continued) Charles Nye Fletcher.

SCRAP DRIVE Under the very capable guidance of Harold Miller a scrap drive was conducted in Nappanee. So successful was the drive that “UNCI.E SAM” netted 7150 pounds of scrap. FIRST AID The lack of doctors and the need of emergency knowledge concerning first aid, prompted our government officials to place into effect a system to remedy this need. This need was met by a program of Physical Fitness and First Aid. compulsory to all Juniors and Seniors. Below we see a First Aid demonstration conducted by a group of girls under the direction of Miss Hoover. BOND CHAIRMEN With Mr. Busche as sponsor, the defense stamp and bond chairmen of the various classes sold many Dollars worth of stamps to aid us greatly in doing our part for VICTOBY. KEYS A desperate need for copper and certain brass alloys found in keys, prompted the officials of our school to sponsor a very successful key drive.VcmuA id new- ctto iwmA- SCIENCE Science in the world of tomorrow will present a phenomenon too great for us to comprehend at this time. At the left we see a typical picture of Chemistry class, where we are preparing to meet this challenge of the future. ART Through pictures we find records of the past. Thus through Art we are able to recall the ideals of the past and the possibilities of the future. SPEECH Public speaking has reached a new height of importance in Nappanee High. Why? Because people are realizing that in order to be successful in this world of keen competition, they must have an easy, pleasant, persuasive manner of expressing themselves.9n Gke GlaAlAmm AERONAUTICS As long as the atmospheres remain free and as long as youth retains its undaunting initiative, man will fly. Here we see youth preparing for the bigger and better airships of tomorrow. PHYSICAL FITNESS As the old saying goes “All work and no play makes Jack a dull hoy.” Thus we are learning that for America’s youth to be mentally fit they must also be physically fit. HOME ECONOMICS Balanced diets, plenty of Vitamins, and household sanitation is playing a vital part in our modern home. Here we see a group of Senior girls preparing themselves as authorities along these lines.faJe tf-aced l ew Out of class, regardless of whether it is on the athletic field or around the table of higher intellectual understanding, we again faced new horizons. The 1943 baseball team, although relatively small in comparison with the opponent, had a season of very marked success. The student initiative, ever present in Nappanee High, wrought the arrival of a new' organization this year—the Sketch Club, organized to afford an outlet for the artistical talents of its members. The band, although hampered because of gas rationing, was again an outstanding organization. In addition to presenting several individual concerts, the band also presented combined concerts with both the Bremen High School band and our High School Chorus. Due recognition should also go to the swing orchestra which so willingly played for us during our big Bond rallies. The Debate team set a new record in Nappanee High School by winning the Sectional and Regional championships. Our track team, although small, shows great promise of becoming a potential organization. Seniors, High School has been just another happy step in our lives. There will be more such periods, just as happy, just as advantageous and important as these past four years. May our challenge at this time he to make them even more successful.fYl ANY people are looking upon us with III sympathy as we step forth into this I I I chaotic world. However we as Seniors are glad we are graduating at this time, because we confidently feel that we are prepared to meet any challenge the future might produce. We feel that our High School days have equipped us with the proper ideals, opinions, and capabilities to help lead humanity from its darkened chamber. On the forthcoming pages you will witness the reasons for our preparedness. UJe tf-aceSCHOOL BOARD J. A. Abell Superintendent Indiana University A. B., A. M. Galen C.

Board of Education As we forever pass from the sacred halls of our dear old Nappanee High School, into what seems to he a most complicated world, may we never forget those to whom we owe so much—our Faculty. Members of the Faculty—we have not always agreed with your decisions; we have perhaps acted a little mischievous in your classes at times; on various occasions we have even been a little aggravated with you; however—quite on the other hand, it has been you who have sponsored us in our various activities; it has been you who have helped us through thick and thin to gain the education which we now possess;—therefore it is to you that we.

Treasurer .... Dan Curtis Olen Stutzman The Fi-Kem Club is a group of students who have studied or are studying one of the science courses such as physics, chemistry, or aeronautics. To be a member of the club the student’s grade in this science course must be a “B” average or better. The club meets one evening each week in the chemistry room to conduct experiments, discuss new discoveries, and learn more about science. So far the club has been limited to boys only. The Hi-Y club was organized on December 31, 1924 and its purpose being to create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian character. This club has been sponsored by Mr. White since 1929, Mr. Abell being the sponsor the other five years. The Social Activities this year were, a Father and Son Banquet held at the Church of the Brethren and swimming parties at the Y. M. C. A. in Elkhart which were all successful. This year’s leadership included James Carl Miller, president; Robert Miller, vice president; Miles Fairchild, secretary; Olen Stutzman, treasurer. The membership for the year was forty-one. Miles Fairchild and Charles Stump represented the club at the annual Hi-Y conference held at Indianapolis this year. —Robert Miller. —Francis RammelFI-KEM Bottom Row: Paul Bourne, Jim Stillson, Sam Richmond, Dan Curtis, Olen Stutzman.

The two outstanding highlights of the year were the operetta and the concert given with the band. The operetta was perhaps the best ever given in Nappanee High School. Undoubtedly the elaborate oriental stage settings and costumes along with the natural ability of its characters made for its success. During the joint band and chorus concert the chorus sang the “Hallelujah Chorus” from the “Messiah” by Handel with the band accompanying. We in the Chorus truly feel that without the expert direction of Miss Lantz the chorus this year would have been just as great a failure as it has been a success.

PATROL BOYS The safety patrol hoys aid greatly in the protection of grade boys and girls who are transversing to and from school. LIBRARIANS Emerson once said, “The virtue of books is to be readable,” and we are proud to say that our books are just that. The books and magazines have been chosen not only for educational purposes, but also for readability. This year—as is true of every year—something new was added to the library besides books. Lack of adequate space was one of the problems so a new book case was purchased. The most widely read magazines are Popular Mechanics, Popular Science, Good Housekeeping, and Reader’s Digest which are kept in the reserve cupboards. It is the librarians’ duty to help students find the materials they want, check out books and magazines, and collect fines in case students forget to return material on time. —Rosemary Martin.MONITORS First Row: Esther Yoder, Irene Tobias, Dewey Housouer, Virginia Holaway, Mary Louise Laser.

These girls, in their four years, have set a standard, which all other cheerleaders in the county have been trying to reach. Nappanee High School should be proud of these loyal and co-operative girls. Thanks, Bette, Shirlee. and Ellen Jean. COACH AND MANAGERS Our new coach, Bob Ervin, formerly of Bristol, ever aided by his two managers, “Stutzie and Doc” were the chief engineers who brought the Nappanee Bulldogs, who were the underdogs before the tourney, through to the FINALS against Elkhart. To you Coach we wish the best of luck. “Stutzie”, as a Senior we wish to thank you kindly for the outstanding job you have performed as the manager of the BULLDOGS. Shirlee Walters Bette Tobias Ellen Jean Pippen Eugene Sponseller Coach Ervin Olen SlutzmanVARSITY BASKETBALL The Bulldogs had another off season this year. After winning the first two games against New Paris and Bremen, they lost their next 16 games including 10 conference games. This does not tell the whole story, however. The Bulldogs, being the smallest team in the conference, nevertheless had plenty of spirit. A lot of credit goes to our new coach, Mr. F.rvin. To prove that a team is never out. the Bulldogs won their first two games in the Sectional Tourney, held at Nappanee. from Jimtown and Middlebury. They lost, however, to Elkhart in the finals. We want to wish Mr. Ervin all the luck in the W'orld for battles still to come. BASKETBALL SCHEDULE Team Place (),,,».

There are seven sports in which the girls may participate: hiking, bicycling, howling, track, volleyball, basketball, and indoor baseball.

CLASS OF 1943 This seems to be the age of long term planning. So how about a jive year plan for the class of ’43? There’s a tremendous difference between what you COULD be five years from now— and what you will be. If you planned—and then worked to carry out that plan-—those dreams could come true.

It is the direct route to the satisfaction of all of the human desires, fame, fun, and fortune. It offers the only assurance that these ends may be attained. And yet it has been observed that only 5% of the world’s people make an effort to discover it. Success. Arnold Bennett said that most people do not desire success; that they do not know what it is, and would not recognize it. It is a truth that, at one time, there are never more than 5% of the people anywhere, who have enough of the old “git up and git,” to become self starters, let alone leaders. Most people, the 95Vo, wait until someone comes by on the band wagon and then try to climb aboard. They are never there to hitch up the horses that pull the wagon ... let alone lead the band, find the wagon, or drive it. So it is that success is not especially difficult ... it is not hard to step up into the 5%, because so few people ever try to get there . . . But there is one thought to keep constantly in mind. And if its truth and value is comprehended there is great hope that you are on the verge of marching as one of the five ... a success. That thought is simply this: There is one thing more important than success, and that is to DESERVE IT. MUTSCHLER BROTHERS COMPANY is aware that much of what has been said of personal success applies to the success of a business. Through each succeeding successful year of its fifty, MUTSCHLER has acknowledged its obligation by striving to build finer products for less money for more people.
