A TRIBUTE TO THOSE IN SERVICE
We, the class of 194-5, wish to extend our gratitude and
respect to the graduates of Nappanee High School who are
serving and have served in our Armed Forces. As we
write this tribute there are over 270 names on the honor
roll in the assembly. There are 7 gold stars designating
those of you who have paid the supreme sacrifice. Many
of you have received various awards and medals as
tokens of appreciation for the sacrihces you have made.
We can only say, Hthank youw in our Small way. Before
the war is over many of the boys and girls from our own
class will be in the Service with you.
Until peace, our thoughts and prayers are ever for you
and your safe return.

We, the class of 194-5, pause in our activities to pay tribute to a group of
unsung heroes. These heroes are the teachers and school officials who
have guided us through twelve years of training. Year after year, they
pursue their unpretentious way, expecting little credit and receiving even
less. Yet, theirs is the sacred responsibility of molding and shaping the
minds of youth.
Often we have misunderstood each other, which perhaps was a good thing,
for in ironing out these difficulties we have come to have a closer bond of
mutual understanding. Now, as we pass from these halls of learning to
take our places in the adult world, we say whats ollm to you, our faculty.

Loyalty is worth more
ln 1933 a group of very frightened youngsters entered the first grade
here at Nappanee. Graduation was then a long, long way off. We
slowly progressed though, until it seemed the years were slipping away
too fast. And now they have gone, all twelve of them. We look hack
with both satisfaction and regret. They were the happiest days of our
lives and we have enjoyed them.
So now, in l945, we prepare to take up the banner of responsibility.
With the confidence of youth we will face the future and try to conquer
its problems. Only by enlarging and using the education that we
received here in school can we do this. The torch is ours now and
we will hear it high.

There are forty-three students in the class of 1945. Twenty-two are
girls and twenty-one are boys. The valedictorian is Paul Bourne, the
salutatorian is Roberta Hively. During the past twenty-two years the
valedictorian has been a boy seven times, the salutatorian has been a
girl twelve times. Rev. Richard S. Reilly is awarded a diploma with the
class of 1945. Most of his work was done in other schools. Since the
high school was organized in 1894, there have been a total of 1527
graduates. Since 1925 the general average of every graduate has been
calculated to three decimal places, and his rank in his class determined
and made a matter of permanent record.
Twelve years ago sixty-five children were enrolled in the first grade. Of
these sixty-five, twenty-eight are on the platform tonight. Three are still
undergraduates, twenty have moved from our city, nine have dropped out,
three are in the service, and one is in college. Much as these 65 are
scattered, in one instance five, and in another instance six, senior names
appear in the same consecutive order as in their first grade register. To
the twenty-eight now graduating, who were in the original class of 1933,
fifteen others have been added: one entered school in 1932, six entered
the class in grades two to eight, five entered as freshmen and three as
The following have excelled in attendance: seven have missed less than
ten days. Those who have missed less than five days up to April 3 are:
Keith Miller, 0, Dorothy Sheets, 1 1f3g Roy Pfeiffer 4K3 Roberta Hively,

The average age of the boys is 17 years 11 months and 4 days. The
average age of the girls is 17 years 11 months and 29 days. Only one
former class of boys f1929jwas younger than this group. The average
age of boys in the class of 1929 was 17 years 10 months and 15 days.
Birthdays are evenly distributed, although January with live is high and
October with two is low. There are twins on tlnauguration Day, March 4,
June 10, and July 12. One boy was born Dec. 31, 1926, and another
Jan. 1, 1927-in different years but one day apart. Birthdays are well
scattered throughout the months, but 21st, 20th, 10th and 1st are most
numerous. Carol Pletcher is the baby of the class. Her age is 17 years
2 months and 21 days. The second youngest is Lois Metzler, who is 1
month and 10 days older than Carol.

A Prophecy is quite a strange thing,
You never know just what life will bring.
lt's hard to tell where you may be
ln 717, or in 763.
Well, your guess is as good as mine,
So here is the story written in rhyme.
Max B. is the coach at Nappanee.
He's been coach there since '53,
Patricia's an artist and has made quite a name,
With her famous paintings in the great 4'Hall of Fame
Chuck Stump has gone east, he,s a diplomat,
Now who would have thought he'd come to that?
Martha Miller's an author and has written some books
Remember her pranks, then her innocent looks?
Guess who is now on the radio?
lt's Sally, she has her own style show.
Jay Holaway has a grocery store
His motto is: HStop here and you will get moreln
Virginia J. has a musical career
She was voted the best woman singer this year.
Booney has left us, he,s in Hollywood,
I guess we decided that he really should
Co on to the stage, has he been a success?

We, the Class of 746, intend to leave our mark in the world. 4 Not a chalk
mark, it will be greater than that. lt will be a dent.
The biggest of all the marks will be--well, let's travel to our capitol city and
we shall observe the greatest politicians of all time.
At the head of things is none other than the class politician fand Democratj
Dean Guard, who presides as our President. Under him is our very faithful
Secretary of State, alias Vice-President, Phyllis Guard. We have as our
Secretary of the Treasury, Rose Hartman, who does an excellent job with
our national debts.
We have, awaiting to give advice and assistance, our sponsors, Mr.
Postma and Mr. Holoway.

man. Phyllis Mellinger was selected to assist him. To keep an account of
our journey and expenses Nancy Uline remained as secretary. As council
members we chose Pegge Lloyd, Mary Katherine Hartman, Arthur Schwartz,
and Owen Lemna. Miss Blank and Mr. White remained as our advisors.
On our march we have attended strictly to business, not holding any parties
during the entire year.
We were all saddened by the death of Mr. Charles Welty, the father of
one of our classmates.
Everyone in our class is eagerly looking forward to his Junior year. All
of us hope to make it a successful adventure.

Always an active organization, the Student Council again experienced a
busy year. We met every other Thursday after school. Under the guiding
hand of Mr. Roose, problems were presented and solutions were discussed.
Various improvements in school procedure were inaugurated.
Our outstanding project which we undertook was the sale of war bonds and
stamps. On Dec. 5 we held a successful bond rally in the assembly. We
sold 33,200 worth of bonds and stamps and were presented with a Minute-
man Hag because over ninety per cent of the school participated.
Membership in the Student Council is made up of all members of the
National Honor Society and two representatives from each home room.

The National Honor Society was organized in 1921. The charter of the
Society was first granted to the Nappanee High School on March 25, 1936.
lt is composed of pupils who stand in the highest fifteen per cent of the
Senior Class and five per cent of the Junior Class. The purpose of the
society is to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to
render service, to promote leadership, and to develop character.
liach year the society has a special project. Since the large honor roll in
the assembly was purchased the duty of the society has been to keep up-to-
date the names of the men and women who have graduated from Nappanee
High School and who are now in the service of our country.

The Journalism Club under the sponsorship of Miss Barnard was founded
last year. This was the first successful attempt to organize such a club.
The purpose of this club is to publish the school newspaper. Diliulldog,
once a month and to make the school more conscious of its activities.
The journalism Club ollers experience to its members and is an extra-
curricular activity which has proved its ability to create more unity among
Nappaneeis student body.
D,Bulldog is put out entirely by the members of this club. It strives to
please all by its many articles concerning student views. The paper has
been a huge success again this year under the capable leadership of our
editors and our sponsor.

The purpose of the Hi-Y Club is to create, maintain, and extend throughout
the school and community, high standards of Christian character.
Since a state decree forbids the rough initiation of new members, the serious
initiation held at the United Brethren Church had double significance.
Eighteen new members joined, boosting our membership to forty-seven.
The Hi-Y held a Father and Son Banquet at the First Brethren Church on
October 9. We went swimming at the Elkhart Y.M.C.A. twice and on
January 20 we sponsored a dime line for infantile paralysis that took in
over fifty dollars.
All in all, the club enjoyed a successful year that is characteristic of
Nappanee Hi-Y Clubs.

This year marks the twentieth year for the Girl Reserves in NHS. The first club was
organized in l925 with twenty-five members. Now, twenty years later we have more
than doubled that and have a membership of sixty.
This year we became a registered member of the National Board of the Young
Women's Christian Association. The symbol of the club is the blue triangleg the
,base standing for spirit, and its two sides for health and knowledge.
Outstanding events for the year include a party held on October l0 in the high school
gym, the serious initiation held on October l9, and the Northern Indiana Girl Reserve
Conference held at Elkhart on February 17. At Christmas we sent gifts to Japanese
Americans living in relocation centers.
We seniors sincerely hope that we have been true to our slogan and have lived up to
our purpose and can do so in future years.

The new members were received into our organization at a candlelight ceremony on
December lllr, l944.
Our programs have been educational as well as entertaining. Some of the high-lights
were a speech on poetry by Mrs. J. M. Bowman and a talk on books and their value
by Rev. C. E. Jones.
We have had a very successful year under the guidance of Miss Shively. We extend
our best wishes to the Girl Reserves next year and hope that they will enjoy their
meetings and be successful in every way.
The band of 63 members has had a very successful year under the direction
of Mr. Habegger. A chorus and band program was given and the annual
joint concert with Bremen was presented both here and in Bremen. On
April 21 the band competed in the contest which was held in Elkhart. We
were proud to have approximately 55 soloists and ensemblists entering the
contest as well as the band. Our last performance of the year was a spring
concert given May ll. The band has been made much better this year by
the purchasing of some new instruments which included two sousaphones,
an oboe, and a French horn. As the year draws to a close we realize that
only under the direction of Mr. Habegger could we have had such a success-

The Monitors have served faithfully all year. They collected
the yellow slips at each hour. Some of them took care of
the attendance record for each day in order to ease the work
of Mr. Roose
These boys have stood in ram, snow and heat to direct the
paths of children coming to and from school. They did a
fine job, indeed, for we had no one injured by car or
bicycle while crossing the streets.
These girls and Miss Shively cared for the library all year.
They searched for delinquent library material and kept the
library well organized and useful. Not only did they supply
us with reference material but also with current periodicals
and books for pleasure reading.

A New Freedom of Speech . . .
Sixty-nine years ago last
.- U, March, the first spoken words
Y " ' Were successfully transmitted
AJ 5 over the telephone.

Still serving the cause of free-
dom, the telephone industry is
tirelessly working to help speed
f the day when it can resume its
true functions of serving peace
