Our book is published along journalistic lines. All phases of its contents are associated with a newspaper. We have tried our best to illustrate-by words as well as pictures-the life at West Side during the reign of the Class of 1939. The School section, which in- cludes the personnel of the fac- ulty and classes, is presented to bring back to mind, in future ref- erence to this annual, the friend- ly faces of your companions dur- ing your stay at W. L. H. S. The Activities division, made up of the extra curricular groups of W. L., is to give a report of the out-of-school doings of our stu- dents. The clubs to which they belong, the activities in which they indulge are a good means by which to judge a person's character. The Athletics section, natural- ly devoted to the inter-high school sports of West Side, is an extensive report of our teams' records-in both football and basketball. Our football and bas- ketball teams both established excellent records during their seasons this year. The Features section, consist- ing of the humor of W.L.-to the staffs greatest interpretation - is presented to illustrate the gay life of W. L. students. The entire book is published, at the expense of the Senior Class, in order that many hours of entertainment may be evolved from the Scarlet and Gray of 1939. S 3 sl .5 ,.X i x x X. I X N West Lafayette High School May 30, 1939 ANNUAL DEDICATED TO GRIDDERS l , ' f -if N It is to the West Lafayette High School football team of 1938, that this yearbook is ded- icated-a team whose Fine record consisted of six wins and one scoreless tie. Completing such a tough schedule without a de- feat was quite an accomplish- ment. The West Side gridders comprised one of the few unde- feated teams in the state. The first backfield, consisting of Riley, Sexson, Elward, and McAfee, was extremely danger- ous. Douglas, Friend, Hartman, Dean, Comingore, and Brady made up a reserve backfield. The first string line, unscored on the entire year, was com- prised of King, Puckett, Shive- ly, Hill, VerHoeven, Lewis, and Cole. Ample reserve strength was made up of Baumgardt, Stafford, Button, Collins, Ham, Heine, and Oliver. Only under the supervision of such a talented coach as Leon Dailey would a team be able to establish such a fine record. In his first year as a mentor, Coach Dailey sustained the finest foot- fall record known to West Side in the last ten years To Leon Dailey, we express 1 2 our heartiest congratulations and 1 sincerest word of appreciation for your excellent job at W. L. this year. Baumgardt, Brady, Button, Cole, Col- lins, Comingore, Dean, Douglas, El- , ward, Friend, Ham, Hartman, Heine, Hill, King, Lewis, McAfee, Oliver, Puckett, Riley, Sexson, Shively, Staf- ford, VerHoeven.

N . 1 FACULTY West Lafayette High School May 30, 1939 EXECUTIVES AT WEST SIDE HIGH WIBLE HINER As one of the school city's leading citizens, Mr. Wible Hiner has been engaged in the office of treasurer of the West Lafayette School Board. He is one of the personnel of the Purdue State Bank. It is, partially, the knowl- edge attained here, that benefits Mr. Hiner in the financial questions con- c e r n i n g the school city of West Lafay- ette. Mr. Hiner's i n t e r e s t i n school affairs is stimulated because of the fact that he is a parent of one of its pupils, Wible Jr. The school year of 1938-9 was Wible Hiner's eighth as a board member. 1 X we F. S. CROCKETT Dr. Crockett is extremely in- terested in the health program of the West Lafayette Public Schools. V He is a prominent surgeon of the city and in 1938-9 he served as secretary of the board. l'fKIllC SIX It has been through the efforts of such men as Dr. Crockett that the new ath- letic field and new school building have been devel- oped for the city of West Lafayette. We all, un- derclassmen as well as seniors, agree that all agree that all his efforts are im- mensely appreciated. O. F. HALL Professor Hall, of Purdue University, has been acting head of the school board this year, as president. As a professor in education at the University he has gained much to con- A tribute to the school city of West Lafay- ette. His work in the success of the operation of the financial actions of the s c h o o 1 h a s been vivid. His work is greatly appreci- ated by the pupils-the parents -the teachers-and the citizens of West Lafay-ette, as a unit. l F. A. BURTSFIELD The West Lafayette Public Schools have had Mr. Burtsfield as Superintendent for twenty- five years, and each year he has been beneficial to the success of the school. He has seen W. L. H. S. grow and expand with all its athletic r e c o r d s, i t s band success, its orchestra success, its dra- m a t i c aims, and its benefits to the graduat- ing seniors. Mr. Burts- field has the knack for co- operation with the faculty as well as the student body. His consideration in all affairs of the viewpoint of the parent and the pupil has put him in a high standing with the "kids", His attitude toward the student has set him high in the parents' minds. ifgn' ' vez!! , V.

It was not long before Bud Shively found all of his prob- lems solved by Virginia Vestal's hand as the roll was called. Rob- ert Kraybill was always "pres- ent" instead of "here", Bob Parks, Charles Lewis, Warren Gabler, Gordon Erwin, and Norm Hill were too busy watch- ing teacher to realize that it was their turn to answer the roll. They finally woke up to realiza- tion with their first blush, and it wasn't their last, either. Polly Prentice, Jim Oswalt, Jim Smith, and Dick Wiley seemed to start immediately to take advantage of the trip home across the cam- pus. Bill Van Camp soon made Fran Lloyd blush, and she hated him for it, but that suited Mar- tha Lommel fine. jane Humph- reys, Harrison Reed, Dick Himes, Max Puckett Cbashfulj, Barbara Lupton, Max Hockema, George Hoffer, Floyd Sterret, Eugene Wood, Helen Zeigler, Hazel Topping, Dale Anderson, Virginia Fox, Betty Doddridge, Barbara Ford, Dick Ham, Alma Chaffee, Jim Gaylord, Ann Ep- ple, Leroy Compton, Eleanor Acheson, Eloise Capps, Clarence Burkenpas, Finley Hamilton, Dorothy Mae Brown, Paul Brady, and Jeanne Anne Burk- holder were the rest of the group that were introduced into socie- ty in the memorable year of 1927. Since we were obviously a most brilliant class from the very beginning, it wasn't long before we were promoted to the higher levels of learning-the first grade. Anna Deane Ramsey came into the class at this time along with some other cravers of education. She had long blond hair that was too great a temp- tation for the boys. Mildred jor- dan and Roberta Walker were added to the "Cross Campus" gang. Bob Underhill, Marian Jackson, Bob Riley, Bob Lides- ter, Dick Douglas and Frances Burkhart added their bit to the class and started right off to oc- cupy front seats. Poor "Doug" didn't like the school or anything about it, so cried all the way to school every day. Betty Dodd- ridge had to stand in the corner with shame written all over her face for talking to Bill Van Camp. Eugene Wood looked like a very promising barber when he innocently cut his hair in school. It W8Sf1,t very even, but we will have to give him credit for at least trying. By the time the second grade was reached, the class, as well as its occupants, had expanded so much that about twenty-five of us were shipped abroad. It was a sad departure, and everyone recovered except Frances Burk- hart. She left the school and didn't return until later years of our life. The third grade brought Ever- ett Peterson from Battle Ground and Jean Ainsworth from the class ahead of us on account of illness. The class felt very proud when Marjorie Bollman and Bob Hass made their appear- ance and provided the class with some brains, not that we weren't quite smart already, but they did help. Others to join our large and happy family at this time were: Don Heine, Ruby Ross, and Ed Edwards. At the begin- ning of the second semester, we moved into the new Morton Building bubbling over with cur- iosity and pride. Again "Doug" stepped into the limelight but not with tears in his eyes this time. His tongue was always hanging out and generally point- ed in the direction of teacher. And remember the day he donned teacher's raincoat, ga- loshes, and umbrella and gave us a most enlightening style show? It was during this year that we made our stage debut. We pre- sented the play Betsy Ross, with Ed Edwards as George Washing- ton. It was here that Ed got his first desire for the Presidency which we finally gave him in his senior year. By the time we were ready for the fourth grade, we felt quite grown up and very full of knowl- edge. This year Faith Wayne came from Boswell with beauti- ful long black curls that were the envy of every girl and the delight of every boy. Howard Lloyd, William Werner, and Betty Lou Duncan also joined us this year. Remember the big box of candy that Betty Lou got for letting her finger-nails grow? After that the whole class tried it, but the candy didn't come in as fast as we had expected and it wasn't long before we I Continued on page 201 PA! I l'Z I GRADUATING SENIORS Q Fw?

L. H. S. as sophomores. They fur- nished their share in dramatics, activi- ties, music, and athletics. In their "frosh" year they gave a very interesting convocation, a satire on the school days of the West Side faculty. It was here that many dra- matic careers were evolved. Many were the romances of 'the sophomore beauties and such infatu- ated senior boys as Dick "Casanova" Ham. The "sophs" carried on in a similar trend of experiences as do all others who have outgrown the "freshman year." As usual, class officers were dele- gated to "run the class." The cabinet consisted of: Robert King, presidentg William Heath, vice-president, Thom- as Spitler, secretary, and Virginia Riley, treasurer. ,IUNIORS Left to right, Row One: Thomas, Keim, Frier, Ward, Milner, Holden, Ostrander, McAfee, Friend, Pickering.

FADE EIGHTEEN CLASS OF '41 ROBERT KING IS SOPHOMORE PREXY The junior Class, led by Robert McAfee, has developed into a well rounded group in their past three years at West Lafayette High. Their freshman year-just green and full of heart throbs for conceited seniors. As sophomores, William Cole was elected class president. The main so- cial function of the year was a Sopho- more Class party. This was quite suc- cessful. Several of the sophomore ath- letes received athletic honor sweaters in football and basketball. Typically, they soon found the Junior year is the toughest," as they started their brain racking schemes working for money to finance the jun- ior-Senior Reception. Aside from the difficulties of their studies, they found that a class meeting was quite an event -even though nothing was accom- plished. Although they were Juniors they decided on green land whiteb for their class colors, and thus evolved the green sweaters. Another event of their talented class was the two-night pre- sentation of "Anne of Green Gables" as their junior play, which opened the way to dramatic success of several of our talented actors. The entire governing body, as Jun- iors consisted of: Robert McAfee, president, Paul Friend, vice-president, Ruth Holden, secretary, and Ann Os- trander, treasurer.

FRESHMEN GREEN WAVE ENTERS WITH CLASS OE '42 In the fall s-m:ster of 1938-39, the upper classmen of West Lafayette High School were blessed with nearly three score typically "green" freshmen. Having been submitted to the usual "convo ticket" sales campaign and "elevator pass" merge, these frosh in time organized a strong defense against the hazing upperclassmen. The spokesman for the freshman class says that they are unusually bril- liant along several lines. They excel in dramatics, music, and some day. when beef gets cheaper. may excel in athletics. They feel proud that they will be the first class to spend a full three years at the new West Lafayette Sen- ior High School. The wish of the freshmen girls is that their class' boys will soon be the "cultured gentlemen" as the senior boys of the '39 class. The "frosh" boys entertain the thoughts of carrying on the wonderful athletic records set by the football and basketball men in the senior class of this year. All in all, they feel that after tak- ing their share of punishment from all sources, that the school will some day be proud of the Class of '42.

"Sissy" Julin also entered at this time, and we shall always remember the "road work" on the way home after swiping caps, which was done by Gordon Erwin and Bob Parks. Life took on a new aspect for Bob Parks the day Becky Ann Pervine put in her appearance and the romance of the year was immediately in bloom. Our stage career continued in the fifth grade with our presentation of Alice in Wonderland, with Virginia Vestal, Dick Himes, and Dick Ham taking part. Ruth Dray and Bob Van Camp joined us: however Bob had a wandering foot and soon left us againg this time in favor of Ford School. Time passed on and soon we found ourselves entering the sixth grade with two new members added to our group: Magdeline Fantone and Edgar Ainslie. Memories of that year will stay with us always. How could we forget Mr. Evans and his twin brother and the hours we spent puzzling over his cur- rent love affair. Remember the time we spanked him on his birthday? That's one time we had the upper hand and, boy, did we use it! Do you remember when Mr. Evans made Faith Wayne and Bob Parks practice their love scenes for the play that se- mester in front of the class? Were they embarrassed! The next semester we moved to Miss Jordan's room and the class pre- sented Old Glory with Virginia Vestal playing the title role supported by practically the whole class. The 7B brought Bob Van Camp back again and he decided to stay this time. Mary Helen Boyd and Eugene Collins and Eloise Guirl also joined our class. John Sexson stepped in and swept Virginia Fox off her feet and their love affair lasted until we were dignified seniors. Was Don Heine ever surprised when each noon he would find a note and candy in his desk which was placed there by Hazel Topping. By the time BB rolled around, the Vestal-Erwin romance was going strong. Gordon was always so thought- ful, such as putting candy in her desk before she arrived at school. Our new- comers of this semester were: Peggy Howard, Eugene Wobio, Fred Hart- man and Harold Young. We shall al- ways remember the Christmas party in Mr. Guild's room. Everyone had so much fun playing cards and eating the PAGE TWYENTY candy which different members of the class had brought. 8A rolled around with the class feel- ing very important. Bob Van Camp had a Scavenger Hunt which was prac- tically the first time any of us had dates. Martha Lommel and Bill Van Camp fell madly in love and the affair was hot and fast for a whole year. The SA Convo consisted of a series of statues. How we worked in preparing white faces and cotton hair, accompanied by the "hurry dearies" of Miss Moore. Re- member we traced the progress of di- gestion everyday? It's a wonder we didn't get indigestion. We presented an operetta, jack and the Beanstalk, with Warren Gabler playing the role of Jack. The practices were always ac- companied by soccer games in the playground which meant more to us than the operetta. Our feeling of eighth grade impor- tance vanished when we entered, as freshmen, in high school, wandering through the halls hunting the numbers on the door and buying convo tickets. The persons that joined our beloved class were Jack Staley, Evelyn Clark, Lynn VerHoeven, Nadine Bell, Vir- ginia Creson and Clifford Duell. Dar- lene Mahns also came, bringing her beautiful voice which proved to be a great asset for her and us in good ole W. L. Now began the budding ro- mance of Mary Helen Boyd and Allen Elward, who came from St. Mary's, which haunted us until our senior year. Other outstanding romances of our freshmen year were: Vestal-E. Morehouse, Peggy Howard-Bob Van Campg Virginia Fox-Johnnie Sexson tcontinuedl. Thirteen girls now formed a club known as the "Jinx Club" which was fated to be the most cussed and discussed club in this con- fused class. We started our sophomore year by organizing and electing Bob Riley as president, Dick Douglas, as vice-presi- dent, Betty Conn, as secretaryg Paul Brady, treasurerg Edgar Ainslie and Everett Peterson, as sergeants at arms. Looks as if the athletes had it. That fiery head, gift of the pen and girls, Wid Neibert joined us that year. Helen Jensen also added to our over-fiowing class. One thing that our class resented this year was the fact that we didn't get to have a sophomore party. We were told by the faculty to save our money for the Reception. The new-comers into our Junior class were: Quentin Ramsey, the jit- terbug, Mary Walz, Beverly Baker and Carl Yates. Helen Julin reappeared and, with Frances Burkhart, really "wowed 'em." We lost Nadine Bell. The class officers this year were: Pres- ident, John Sexsong Vice-President, Jean Ainsworthg Secretary, Polly Pren- ticeg Treasurer, Frances Burkhart. We shall never forget "Doug" as Charlie McCarthy, Ruth Dray as Kate Smith, and Virginia Creson as Martha Raye in the Junior Convo. It was excellent- ly directed by Faith Wayne. We were very busy this year planning and eam- ing money for the Reception, which turned out to be a surprising success, or shall we say a "smelling" successg with the theme as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Our class presented for our Junior Play, "Take My Ad- vice", starring Mary Helen Boyd, Bud Shively, Virginia Vestal, and Warren Gabler, which was a "smashing" suc- cess. This year was the beginning of the affair of Jeanne Anne Burkholder and Lawrence Woodruff. "Shiva" couldn't seem to make up his mind who he wanted that year. By the time we advanced as seniors, our number was increased by the fol- lowing: Clifford Duell, Eileen Fites, Theodora Ulrey, Wanda Hughes, Mary Larson, Rowena Jamison, Martha Nic- ol, Nadine Bell and Laveme Marsh, who proved to be a great asset to the basketball squad and to hearts of the women. The class oliicers consisted of Ed Edwards, as presidentg Bud Shive- ly, as vice-presidentg Frances Lloyd, as secretary, and Jean Ainsworth, as treasurer. Frances Lloyd and Jean Ainsworth found true love in a couple of alumni, and we certainly do hope it lasts-both are swell. Roberta Walk- er has found her steady in a cute little blond from Jeff. The senior boys final- ly caught on to the girls and formed the "Eight Ball Club." Although the "Jinx Club" was not so active this year, the Eight Ballers were a little too active, it seems. Our great maestro, Harrison Reed, succeeded in forming a swing band called the "Emanons." We hope the band can carry on next year. The class has had quite a time de- ciding the question of caps and gowns for Commencement, but it seems we shall graduate in style-the same as last year. Even though the faculty has informed us of our indifferent, over- bearing attitude, we hope that these years we have spent together will re- main as fond memories.

Many are the benefits derived from these various activities. It is commonly believed that one's associations with others in these groups does him as much good as any of his studies. l'.-Klili 'IWYI-IXTY-OX SENIORS PUBHSH ANNUAL STAFF VOICES OPIN- ION ON BENEFITS OF YEAR'S WORK On surveying the staff mem- bers of this Scarlet and Gray for 1939, the following results were compiled from the various per- sons concerned. These are their opinions of the year's work on this publication: Max Puckett--Editor "This year has taught me much-along several lines. One of these lines-publishing this annual-has shown me that it takes whole hearted cooperation to put out an annual." "I can rightfully say that there were only a handful of persons on this staff who helped print this book. Namely, these persons were: Harold Shively, Faith Wayne, Marjorie Bollman, Bar- bara Lupton, Eugene Wood, Da- vid Heckard, Hazel Topping, and myself." 'Although it was a very tough job to edit this, I surely learned very much about journalism. The experience alone was very helpful. The contacts with va- rious persons aided also." Eugene Wood-Photography "I have found out many things about the importance of pictures in publishing an annual. I gained some needed experience in furthering my ability to make pictures. I have not resented the time that I have spent working with our swell editor, Max Puck- ett, and some of the other mem- bers of the staff. The time spent, I believe, by everyone was well spent. I was glad to have the chance to work on such an im- portant publication by the senior class of 1939." l'A1:rI TNYENTY .TWO OUR AIM IS THAT YOU LIKE THIS PUBLICATION We, the Scarlet and Gray staff of the 1939 yearbook, have near- ly exhausted our supply of opin- ions, pictures, and ideas concern- ing this publication, so we sin- cerely hope that you, the stu- dents of West Side High, will be pleased with our results. Although our book is small, it is small only in one sense of the word-that is, number of pages. We feel sure that the content- both pictures and literature- are far expanded from previous yearbooks. We have worked hard to pub- lish this yearbook. We have missed periods, stayed late after school hours, and made many enemies through our large de- mands from the class members. We will say one thing to our benefit-you wanted a change in annual style-well here it is. Take it or leave it. MAX PUCKETT EDITS SENIOR CLASS YEAR BOOK Max Puckett, prominent sen- ior football hero, was selected to be editor-in-chief of the 1939 Scarlet and Gray by the class members' vote. with Puckett, Faith Along Wayne was chosen business manager, and Virginia Creson was designated as assistant to the editor. Although the responsibility lies on the editor, the toughest part of the work was done by Barbara Lupton and Marjorie Bollman. The work of these girls was soliciting for advertisements from the merchants of Greater Lafayette and community. This job of getting advertisements is one that offers little honor and credit, but much work. To whoever may read this, let us say--Thanks to the advertis- ing staff-they deserve it more than the rest of the staff.

SCHOOL PAPER SUCCESSFUL ROBERT UNDERHILL EDITOR-IN-CHIEF OF WEST SIDEAN The school paper, The West Sidean, is edited by a student staff and is presented in eighteen issues per school year. Its make- up consists of class news, club news, editorials, activity sched- ule, sports, society, principal's column, exchanges, and a slam column. The slam column, entitled Scarlet and Gay, is definitely the chief reason for student subscrip- tion. In this column the students have opportunity to voice their say-so about other persons and events. It has proven a very en- ticing column at various times throughout the year. The club news generally re- ports the doings at various club meetings and frequently de- scribes the clubs' parties. The class news is specific club news, which is restricted to classes alone. The sports section reports the football, basketball, baseball, and intramural events held through- out the year at West Side. The editorials usually are made up of student opinions on conditions and events pertaining to the school city of West Lafay- ette. The activity schedule, newly installed by this year's staff, lists the extra curricular activities which occur during the particu- lar coming month. The exchange column, largely increased this season, has ex- change papers from several dif- ferent high schools in Indiana, and also several out-of-state high schools. The two stafis, editorial and business, were bothered with much loafing on the parts of the assistant staff members. This sit- uation left the bulk of the work to a mere handful of students, who should receive all the credit due them.

It was held in the Purdue Union Building. The theme of the banquet was "The Victory Parade". Mal Elward, the head football coach at Pur- due, was the main speaker. In December the Sunshine and Tri-Y clubs had a joint meeting. The Christmas play, "Love Comes Knocking", was presented and Christmas carols were sung. After this program a social hour which was climaxed by a visit from Santa Claus was enjoyed. Committees Carry on Work The work of the society is car- ried on mainly by committees into which the club is divided. The candy sales at school and at football games is the duty of the Candy Committee. The Sun- shine Room Committee keeps the Sunshine Room in order and provides a girl to take charge each period. The Look-out-in- School Committee sends cards and flowers to the sick. The Look-out-in-Community Com- mittee joins with the Hi-Y and Tri-Y to see that baskets of food are given to those less fortunate than ourselves at Thanksgiving and Christmas. The Eats Com- mittee, Program Committee, and Finance Committee do just what their titles suggest. The Better Sunshine Committee is in charge of writing invitations and ar- rangements for meetings. This year the Sunshine Socie- ty carried out its usual custom of giving something to the school by buying "bike racks". At the last of March was held the chief money-making scheme of the year, an entertainment in the auditorium and a penny carnival in the gymnasium. COUITER AND McMAHON ADVISORS Much credit is due Miss Coul- ter and Miss McMahon, and also those other faculty advisers for their assistance during the year. They have given their time and effort to help make the year a successful one, and have suc- ceeded in doing so. The success of any organiza- tion depends almost entirely upon its officers. The Sunshine Society this year had a group of executives who deserve high praise for the capable manner in which they handled the re- sponsibilities of their offices. Jean Ainsworth climaxed four active years of Sunshine work by serving this year as president. Polly Prentice, the other Senior among the officers, filled the ex- acting position of treasurer. Un- derclassmen Marselda Jacobs, vice-president, Frances Mellon, recording secretary, and Anne Newton, corresponding secre- tary, completed the staff. S. S. S. BENEFITS WEST SIDE GIRLS The Sunshine Society was founded in 1900 at Crawfords- ville, Indiana, as a Sunday School class. The West Lafay- ette society was organized in 1919 and it is a member of this state-wide organization. The purpose of the Sunshine Society is to spread cheer and helpfulness through the school and community. The creed best shows the object of the society: "With love in my heart, forget- ting self and with charity for all, I will make the object of my life helpfulness and kindness to oth- ers. I shall try to fit myself to give intelligent service in mak- ing my community a safer and more beautiful place in which to live. Thus will my own life be- come rich and completef' FRESHMAN INIIIATES STRENOTHEN BODY This year the society was greatly strengthened by a large group of freshmen who were init- iated in September and Febru- ary. After both initiation serv- ices, a "get-together" party was held during which dancing and refreshments were enjoyed. The state theme this year is "Vocations and Avocationsf' The local society also tried to carry out this theme in their meetings. Speakers who are well versed in their vocations told the club the advantages and disadvantages of their fields of work. The district convention in the fall was held at Jefferson High School in Lafayette. The West Lafayette organization aided Jefferson by leading the songs in the opening session. It was a very successful convention. PAGE TWENTY-FIVE I939 HI-Y CLUBS OF JUNIOR HI-Y EINISHES NINTH YEAR Organized for the purpose of creating, maintaining, and ex- tending throughout the school and community high standards of Christian character, the Jun- ior division of the Hi-Y club, composed of members of the sec- end half freshmen and entire sophomore classes, has carried its triangular emblem about the school since the second semester of the 1933-34 school year. Since that time the club has expanded greatly and now has twenty-nine members with the membership to be raised by the second semes- ter's call for new members. EORIY MEMBERS ENTER HI-Y The West Lafayette Senior Hi-Y Club was started in our school in the year 1926 and is made up of the boys from the Junior and Senior classes. The club has a meeting every Wednesday. The purpose of the club is "to create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community, high standards of Christian character." On October 3rd, forty new members were voted into the club and on November lst they were formally initiated. The club had many interest- ing speakers during the year. Among them were: Mr. Wheel- er, secretary of the Y. M. C. A., Professor Frank Hall of Purdue University, Mr. Clarence Dam- mon of Purdue University, Mr. Ellis Hopkins, teacher at Morton School and W. L. H. S. Debate Adviser, Jack Walters, head of the Personnel Department at Purdue University, and Eloise Guirl, student who gave a talk on her Lake Geneva trip.

NEW SPONSOR EOR CLUB Due to unfortunate circum- stances Mr. Tucker, who has sponsored the club since its orig- ination, was unable to attend the meetings this year and thus for- feited his sponsor's duties to Mr. Dailey and Mr. Replogle. Last year the meetings of this organi- zation were held every other Wednesday at seven o'clock in the evening, but this year, due to the change of schedule and due to having a special activity pe- riod for such activities, the meet- ing date was changed to that pe- riod on Wednesdays. The various program commit- tees provided the club with many interesting meetings dur- ing the school year. Among the social activities of the club is the annual party which is in charge of a committee appointed by the president. The party was held on April 29. SENIOR HI-Y MAKES AWARD The club has attended several churches on Sunday morning during the semester. Those serv- ing on committees were: Pro- gram chairman, John Sexson, Eats, James Oswalt, Entertain- ment, Warren Gabler, Church, Allan Elward, Publicity, Harold Shively. At the end of the year the Hi- Y awarded a medal to the senior boy who was judged to be the outstanding one in attitude, sportsmanship, and activities. The officers for the year were: Sponsors, Mr. Hammer, Mr. Dean, President, George Hoffer, Vice - President, john Sexton, S e c r e t a r y, Warren Gabler, Treasurer, Donald Heine, Ser- geant-at-Arms, Edgar Ainslie.

N'l'Y-SEVEN ATHLETIC BOOSTERS ACTIVE SCARLETTES CONCLUDE SUCCESSFUL YEAR This year is the eleventh in the history of the Scarlette Club. The activities of this club have been greatly increased during the years of its existenceg it has become a leader in school affairs and a symbol of the best in school spirit. The Scarlettes began their year of duties as athletic boosters with the selling of student tick- ets for all home football games. The girls did valuable work in this line and also did their best to bolster up school spirit and at- tendance at games by taking over the pep sessions. This in- novation was a new develop- ment this year on the part of the Scarlettes and was greeted by much acclaim from the student body. The student body also re- sponded favorably when a mem- ber of the organization, Barbara Ford, was added to the school"s yell-leading staff. Barbara estab- lished a precedent as the first girl yell-leader in West Lafay- ette High School history. The Scarlettes as a body gave volume to her yells with the help of their scarlet megaphones. These meg- aphones together with red suede "dinl-cs" form the badge of the organization members. A Scar- lette member may also wear the pin decorated with red enamel. This pin bears the insignia of West Lafayette High School, an eagle underneath which are the initials of the school, and also the name of the organization. OFFICERS AID IN YEAR'S SUCCESS The success during the past year of this club is due in a great part to the eHicient leadership I',Uil'I 'l'N'l-IX'l'Y- l'IIlill'l' of Virginia Vestal, president of the organization. Virginia was assisted in her duties by Betty Doddridge, vice-president, who took charge during Virginia's ab- sence and helped in numerous other ways: and by Marjorie B o I 1 m a n, secretary-treasurer, who kept all financial records of the organization and also took charge of the correspondence.

The requirements for admission to this organization are that the candidate must have a junior ranking, a scholastic av- erage of a "G-" for the preced- ing semester, and must have proved an interest in athle- tic activities by attending all home football games. The candi- date also must have attended West Lafayette High School for at least one year. These girls, to prove their fitness to enter the Scarlette organization, were put through a period of probation. This period which lasted for three days was marked by the outlandish garb and queer do- ings on the part of the younger girls. A high spot in the proba- tion period was the banquet in honor of the undefeated football team. At this event, the pledges were forced to consume their food in most difficult and intri- cate manners. Probation was cli- maxed by rough initiation and an initiation supper, the partic- ulars of which may not be dis- closed. The addition of the new mem- bers was celebrated by a semi- formal dance in their honor. The Senior Scarlettes and their guests were entertained at this social affair by a humorous skit, presented by the Junior girls. After the admission of the new members, the Scarlette organi- zation continued their cheering activities into the basketball sea- son. This club further sponsored the basketball season by selling gray and scarlet pencils on which the basketball schedule had been printed. The money made from this venture along with the dues of fifty cents a year go toward the financing of the basketball banquet and the pledge dance. A most popular social activity of this club were the suppers be- fore both basketball and football games. These were usually pot- luck affairs and did much to in- crease the unity of the members of the club. When the new mem- bers joined, the suppers were held in two groups because of the unwieldy size of the club, the Seniors having a supper be- fore one game and the Juniors before the next. Another social e v e n t t h a t p r o v e d popular through the whole school was a tea dance sponsored by the Scarlette or- ganization. Though only one such affair has been successfully carried out, this club hopes in the future to sponsor many other similar occasions. ClUB OFFERS CUP TO W. l.'s MOST VAl- UABLE ATHlETE To the most valuable player, in either football or basketball, is given, by the W. L. Club, an engraved cup. This award is made at commencement and the owner is determined by a popu- lar vote from the entire mem- bership of the club. This award is given each year and is one of the things to make better our athletes and our ath- letic meets. It is awarded on athletic abil- ity, attitude, contribution to suc- cess of the team, and scholastic record. The cup bears the owner's name and the purpose and in- signia of the W. L. Club of West Side High School. WEST SIDE LETTER- MEN ORGANIZE The major lettermen of West Lafayette High School, those winning sweaters in football or basketball, have been united into the W. L. Club of the school. The purpose, as set forth by Carl Debard and the athletes of 1928, is: to do its utmost to cul- tivate a high morale among the athletes and endeavor to main- tain clean speech and habits, and set a high standard of character among the athletic teams of West Lafayette High School. Organized late in the year, the W. L. Club has had few or- ganized meetings during the year. Those meetings held con- sisted of round table discussion of the various fields of athletics, sportsmanship, officials, rules of the various games, attitudes of the athletes and scholarships. The club has been endeavor- ing, under the leadership of Leon Dailey, to secure scholarships for some of the athletes to va- rious colleges and universities. OFFICERS AID IN SUCCESS The activity of the W. L. Club's various officers has been a great contribution to the suc- cess of the club. Through Mr. Dailey and the officers, elaborate plans were laid for an exciting party for the boys. The ofiicers, as elected by the athletes themselves, are as fol- lows: President ............ Eugene Collins Vice-President .... Laverne Marsh Secretary .............. Charles Lewis Treasurer ................ Paul Friend PAGE TVVENTY-NIIVE WEST SIDE MUSIC GROUP GIRLS PARTAKE IN MUSICAL ACTIVITIES New Schedule Hinders Organization Due to the many confiicts in the new schedule this year, the Girls' Glee Club did not have as many members as before, but it, however, did not hinder the well directed group headed by Miss Roth. Interesting Program Enjoyed The group, this year, studied many interesting types of music, including spirituals, classical, and semi-classical. During the two semesters C1938-39j, the Girls' Glee Club accepted invita- tions to sing over Purdue's radio station, WBAA, and also for the Morton P. T. A. This year, the Girls' Glee Club took, part in a concert, combined with the or- chestra. The club also partici- pated in the Sunshine Annual Show, by singing negro spirituals. The organization also enter- tained at the High School P. T. A. meeting and the Baptist Church. The Girls' Glee Club conclud- ed a very successful year by singing at the Commencement exercises.

I4 l' lllllfll BOYS' GLEE CLUB MAKES DEBUT Organized by Miss Roth For the first time, a Boys' Glee Club was finally organized by Miss Roth. During the first se- mester, of this school term, the Boys' Glee Club could not be regularly scheduledg therefore the group met at 3:16 a few nights each week. However, the schedule for the second semester included the Boys, Glee Club. They met one day a week, Friday, the First hour. The last day before Christmas vacation, the two glee clubs com- bined sang Christmas carols in the lower hall. The club's first public appear- ance was in the S. S. Annual Show. They joined a few from the Girls' Glee Club to sing ne- gro spirituals. which added an air of the "Ole South" to the show. The singing, as yet, has been in three or four part groups. and later on Miss Roth hopes to de- velop more. Noel Lee, the talented high school musician, is the accom- panist for the organization.

Howenstein has proven him- self a capable director, as the or- chestra has won first place in the State Contest for the last two years. Orchestra to National Last year 119381 the West Lafayette High School Orches- tra was chosen to represent In- diana at the National Contest: therefore, this year. the orchestra did not have to compete in the prelirninaries, but went direct to the National Contest, which was held in Indianapolis, Indiana. Solo Contest Proves Popular Several members of the or- chestra take advantage of the solo contests within the state, first the district, then if they withstand the competition they are selected to go to the State Contest. Due to the size of the W. L. Orchestra, it is entered in the B class. All class B orchestra and solo contests were held at Mar- tinsville, Indiana. This year the solo contests were held a week before the orchestra contests. The State Contests were held at Indiana University in Bloom- ington, Indiana. All the contests were held in the buildings on the I. U. campus. The locality of the State Contest was of great inter- est to the seniors, as some plan to go to I. U. as their further edu- cational training. National Contest Anxiously Awaited The orchestra a n x i o u s l y awaited the National Contest, held at Indianapolis, Indiana. Mr. Howenstein and the orches- tra worked industriously to put the finishing touches on the mu- sic to be played at the contest. Although the orchestra lost many musicians with the 1938 gradua- tion, they are making up their loss with the newcomers to W.L. W. l. BAND SEES ANOTHER YEAR Started in 1929-30 The West Lafayette High School Band was organized in the winter of 1929-30 by L. B. Elmore. When the band started about twenty-five hundred dol- lars was spent on instruments by the School Board and the Music Boosters. In the beginning the band was made up of fifteen members, and this year the num- ber has increased nearly four times. Boosters of Athletics The band plays for all the home football and basketball games, as well as entering in the State and National Contests. The band keeps up the spirit of the crowd at the games with its Hpeppy tunes" and the good ole "Scarlet and Gray". Participates in Contests In recent years the West La- fayette High School Band has made a fine record at the State and National Contests. Every year some of the members of the O r c h e s t r a or Band literally "walk-off" with honors at the contests. FA I- IH lY I' WEST LAFAYETTE'S TRI-Y TRI-Y CLUB EDUCATES GIRLS OF WEST SIDE When a girl becomes a mem- ber of the Tri-Y club she auto- matically becomes a junior mem- ber of the Y. W. C. A. and her purpose is to be: Gracious in manner Impartial in judgment Ready for service Reaching toward the best Eager for knowledge Seeing the beautiful Earnest in purpose Reverent to God Victorious over self Ever dependable Sincere at all times The membership of the Tri-Y Club includes one hundred and twenty-five girls from all classes. Under the leadership of Miss Ruth Sinks, with the assistance of Miss Dorothy Meyer, the group helped to carry on the work of the Girl Reserve this year. The theme of the society this year was the "Tri-Y Aims", and at the meetings, which were held once a month during the school year, the club did an excellent job of carrying out its purpose. Many items were included in the year's discussion. One of the best was the talk given by Mrs. Mc- Fadden, after which an open dis- cussion was held on the subject of "Teen Age Problems". There was also a very interesting talk on knitting by Mrs. Dean, and a fashion show at which many of the girls belonging to the club modeled the clothes they have had made for their personal wardrobes. A speech was given PAGE TIIIITTY-TWV!! by Miss Clark on the connec- tion of the Tri-Y with the Y. W. C. A. She is the secretary of the latter organization. Miss Sinks added greatly to the entertain- ment side of the meetings with her many fascinating talks. TRI-Y PARTY IS DIFFERENT In the spring, the Tri-Y girls gave a dance in the school audi- torium, which proved to be quite a successful affair. A great per- centage of the school body at- tended, and the membership of the club was admirably repre- sented. The most popular affair of the year, however, from the view- point of the Tri-Y members, is the Mother-Daughter tea. This is an annual activity, and one which the parents of the students can particularly enjoy. This year's tea was very successful. In the second semester, Tri-Y joined with the Hi-Y in present- ing H320 College Ave.," one of the most breath-taking, hair- raising, thrilling and exciting dramas ever given at W. L. H. S. The proceeds from the play were divided between the two clubs. MEMBERS GIVE OWN OPINIONS I think Tri-Y is one of the most honorable organizations a girl can belong to. It has very high ideals and if every girl that is a member tries her best to live according to these, we can and will raise the moral standaxqds of to-day. With Tri-Y comes much joy, not only for today but as long as we desire it. Soph. Marian Wierenga. elf DIG 251 At the close of my first semes- ter in Tri-Y I find that it has meant many things to me. First is the comradeship of the girls in Tri-Y and their high idealsg sec- ondly, I find that their programs have been interesting as well as helpful. I also have enjoyed their social functions and belonging to this club is a real privilege. Frosh. Beth Schaupp. 1 1 lk As a freshman B in the fall I joined Tri-Y, and through Tri-Y have made many friends that are really true friends. Everyone is so nice to you that you don't feel that they look down on you as just a freshman. You don't know how much that means to a girl when you enter high school. The programs are interesting to ev- eryone as well as educational. Everyone is made to feel like they are as much a part of the club as the officers. Tri-Y is one friend that every girl should make and keep all through her high school life. Frosh. Susan Mayer. :lc zj: :iz The Tri-Y Club of West La- fayette High School has been in many ways a very worth-while organization. Their meetings are unusually instructive especially on subjects concerning girls of high school age. They have done their part and more in the Thanksgiving and Christmas basket drives. One of the nicest things that the Tri-Y has done is to acquaint the older girls with the younger girls. It has given more unity to the school which is important to any high school. The only objectionable feature is that it isn't as strong as it could and should be. Sr. Mildred jordan. fl' Pi' if HOWARD SETS PACE FOR TRI-Y GIRLS Peggy Howard, a very popu- lar senior, this year held the of- fice of President of the organiza- tion, and filled the position ad- mirably.

The club stands for a course that is needed and want- ed by all the members, that of the betterment of speech. The programs are invariably interest- ing and serve to teach, thus pro- moting the purpose of the club, as well as to give enjoyment. It is always interesting to listen to a speaker, who is absolutely sure of his subject, and the way that he presents it to his audience. This is what I have come to ex- pect from the Speech Arts Club, and I can truthfully say that I have never been disappointed. By way of variety, and also for the benefit of students in the club, the programs are some- times presented entirely by the members. This is an excellent way for discovering talent for fu- ture use in plays, convocations, and the like. This club is somewhat differ- ent from the other clubs in that the membership includes both boys and girls, a fact, which be- cause of its unusualness, might serve to enhance its unanimous popularity. :Ia :iz ,I ane Humphreys: I think that Speech Arts is a worth while organization for fur- thering of speech. One thing against it, is the way the dues are used. Why shouldn't the dues be used for the whole club, and not just the debaters? However, if it wasn't for Speech Arts, we couldn't arrange the debates with other schools. It also has brought us several good speakers, that we otherwise could not have heard. DEBATE SUPPORTED BY SPEECH ARTS One of the principal activities of the club is the sponsoring of the debate team. This group is made up of members of the speech class who wish to gain ex- perience along this line. Mrs. Mueller directs this group, which meets after school hours or dur- ing a free period. The reason for this is that there is no arrange- ment made for it on the regular schedule. The students who com- posed the teams this year were Virginia Vestal, Eloise Guirl, Ed Edwards, Peggy Howard, Faith Wayne, Quentin Ramsey, Vir- ginia Fox, and Marjorie Boll- man. The sectional debate was held in February at West La- fayette where West Side was sucessful in two out of four de- bates. The affirmative team beat Jefferson High School and lost to Brazil. The negative team won from Wiley of Terre Haute and lost to Crawfordsville. Out of the fourteen decision debates in which the teams participated, eight were victories. This is real- ly a commendable percentage especially considering that de- bating at West Side is a senior activity, while the teams at oth- er schools are made up of stu- dents who have debated for the past three or four years. PRENTICE PRESIDENT OF SPEECH ARTS The officers of the club must be members of the Speech class, except the representatives from the sophomore and junior classes. The club has had many dis- tinguished presidents in the past. From the classes of 1934 to the class of 1938 the presidents were: Bill Charles, Ruth Hall, Merton Clevett, Bob Keim, each holding office in succession dur- ing those years. MEETINGS MOST ENIOYABIE IN CURRENT HISTORY The club meets on the second Tuesday of each school month, and their entertainment covers a variety of different subjects. The programs during the past year have included a speaker who talked on Turkey and a variety hour at which Bob McAfee was master of ceremonies. Prizes were given at the latter, and Quentin Ramsey with Eloise Guirl received first prize for jit- terbugging. Virginia Riley took second prize for her singing of a popular favorite, and Virginia Creson walked away with third prize for a hill-billy interpreta- tion. One of the meetings consisted of a speech contest between the ex temporaneous speaking teams of Jefferson High and West Side. Bob McAfee, Virginia Fox, Faith Wayne, and Betty Lou Duncan upheld the honor of W. L. against Jeff. Meetings for the rest of the year included a talk on Colorado at which movies were featured, a one act play presented by the speech class along with a play given by another school, and the debate banquet. The program for each meeting is placed in charge of a committee made up of members from the club. PARTY MEETS WITH APPIAUSE Each year the Speech Arts Club contributes to the social life of the high school by spon- soring a dance, usually given sometime in the spring. This year's party was a great success, and was attended by a large ma- jority of the membership. The meetings of the last year have differed from the meetings in the past by having more out- side entertainment. 1-A'-' mr' -v HOME ECONOMICS CLUB COOKS ALSO DANCE AT "SHINDlG" The Ahea Club held its an- nual dance on November 12 at the High School. The theme was the formal opening of a "Bubble Club" in which programs, dec- orations, and refreshments were carried out with bubbles and bal- loons. The president, Mary Hel- en Boyd, was the mistress of ceremonies. She announced sev- eral special dances, among which was an elimination dance. The refreshments were served by freshman and sophomore girls in bright colored aprons. The chap- erons were Mr. and Mrs. Dailey, Mrs. Hamlin, Mr. and Mrs. Dean, Mr. and Mrs. Burtsfield, Miss Meyers, ofiicers, and par- ents. Ofiicers for the year were: President Mary Helen Boyd Vice-President Ruth Holden Secretary-Treasurer Dorothy Anne Canfield AHEA ClUB HAS VARIED PROGRAMS The Ahea Club, a society or- ganized expressly for girls who are particularly interested in Home Economics, this year had one of its most successful sea- sons. A business meeting held at the High School on October 20 officially opened the c1ub's activ- ities for the year. At this meet- ing many things were discussed, particularly the programs which were to fill out the schedule, and the club budget. It was decided, after much debating on the sub- ject, that the dues should be set at thirty-five cents for the entire year. Many of the members be- came an even more integral part of the organization when they were appointed to posts on the program and finance committees. The program for this first meet- ing consisted of a short demon- stration of a new type vacuum cleaner. Dorothy Ann Canfield played hostess to the group at the next K I llllll1 I meeting. This was the Christ- mas party, and a pot luck supper answered the food problem for the evening. Frances Lloyd was another good Samaritan to the club. The Valentine party was given at her home, and was a great success. Valentine refreshments were served. At the second business meeting Miss Cora Faust from the Foster Shop gave an instruc- tive talk on wrapping Christmas presents. The most lucrative meeting of the season was held at Jefferson. The Jefferson Home Economics Club invited the club to attend a tea in their honor. AHEA CLUB Left to right, Row One: Julin, Burk- hart, Vestal, Holden, Boyd, Canfield, Hamlin, Ross.

SCIENCE CLUB CELE- BRATES EIGHTH YEAR Since its origin in 1931, the Science Club, under the careful guidance of Miss Inskeep, has grown from a very small mem- bership until, at the present, it contains approximately one-sixth of the student body. During the S years of its existence the club has had as its object, the ideal of promoting the knowledge of an understanding of nature and sci- ence as we find them in our ev- eryday existence. Science Club meetings are us- ually held during the first week of each month. At these meetings projects and articles of interest are pre- sented and explained by various members. ACTIVITIES ARE UNLIMITED The activities of the Science Club are unlimited in scope. Many trips and talks are enjoyed yearly by members. One of the most interesting presented dur- ing the last school year was the discussion of the properties of Liquid Air by Dr. Allen of Pur- due. Dr. Allen gave an illustrated lecture on liquid air by using various experiments and demon- strations to prove his points. Another enjoyable and en- lightening lecture by Dr. Brady on "Swordiishing OH the North American Coast" was presented to the club. Numerous other Pur- due faculty members appeared before the club during the year. Many hikes and trips were also enjoyed by the club mem- bers throughout the year. Among the most interesting of these were the breakfast trip to the Purdue University Horticultural SCIENCE CLUB Left to right, Row One.' Newton.

The group also viewed the stars and planets, through a tele- scope owned by one of the club members, Phyllis Baker. The annual fall outing includ- ed a ten-hour stand at Oakdale Dam and Gaylord's cottage on the Tippecanoe River. Much "devilment" was raised on this trip, especially at Gaylord's. The spring trip, yet undecided at the time of publication, was looked forward to with great en- thusiasm by all members. MEMBER OE I.J.A. OE S. The West Lafayette High School's Science Club is a mem- ber of the Indiana Junior Acad- emy of Science, which meets ev- ery fall. This year the state meeting was held at Purdue Uni- versity: thus many of the West Side members were able to at- tend. Donald Frier, prominent W. L. H. S. S. C. member, was elected vice-president of the state organ- ization, at this meeting. West Side's Club contributed its share to the displays at Pur- due.

SOCIETY PRESENTED BY SENIOR CLASS ANNE OF GREEN GABLES The theatrical season at West Side was started off with a "Bang" by the junior class when they presented L. M. Montgom- ery's famous novel, in play form, "Anne of Green Gables." Doris Pickering, a lovely red-head, lent her presence in the role of Anne. Wayne "Romeo" Hicks was her girlhood sweetheart, Gilbert. Other prominent members of the Junior class made up the excel- lent cast, and turned in stellar performances. HI-Y TRI-Y OFFERS MYSTERY DRAMA The second dramatic offering of the year was given by the two leading activities in the school, l'.llSl'f 'l'lllN'l'Y'I-IUilI'l' the Hi-Y and Tri-Y clubs. This co-production is an annual affair, and one that is eagerly looked forward to. 320 College Avenue, a horrifying murder mystery that was really a "Chiller-diller," was chosen this year. Chills, suspense and a very unusual ending helped make this play a success- ful undertaking. Virginia Vestal, a senior, had the feminine lead, and Bud Shively played opposite her. SUNSHINE SOCIETY GIVES BLACKFACE The most informal offering of the season was the Sunshine So- ciety's minstrel show, or black- face revue, which was given the Hrst of April. A pony chorus of seven girls danced, and a select- ed group of singers from the Boy and Girls Glee Club sang several negro spirituals. A burlesque on Uncle Tom's Cabin was given by a group of 8 Ballers at the close of the program. SENIORS GIVE NEW FIRES "New Fires," a comedy drama in three acts, written by Bur- dette, was given by the senior class early in May. Several of the class beauties, as well as its most handsome males were in- corporated in the excellent cast. Polly Prentice, a senior who has had much dramatic experience during her four years at West Side, had the important role of Olivia, and Warren Gabler played opposite her. West Lafayette High School May 30, 1939 WEST SIDE EXCELS IN SPORT an an if LEON DAILY MADE ' ' y ATHLETIC DIRECTOR ' AT WEST SIDE HIGH Leon Dailey, football, basket- I ball, and baseball star at Purdue University in 1933-34-35, estab- lished a percentage of 863 dur- ing his first season as a high school coach, with his record of 1000 per cent during football season and 727 per cent for his basketball games. Fresh out of college, Dailey has evolved quite a technique of . making friends with the athletes. To the boys, Leon was "one of the gang." He was one of the best liked members of the entire W. L. faculty. In the school room, Mr. Dailey instructed the boys hygiene class as well as his physi- cal education class. Coach Dailey was very influ- ential on the Athletic Associa- tion. He had much to do with the success of the Association's getting the use of the Jefferson gymnasium for the home varsity basketball games and practice sessions. His influence with Pur- I due officials was one factor which helped to equip the athletic teams. The senior class of '39 had many notable athletes who will be missed by the teams of the 1939-40 season. I, H.. 73 a P 1' L I I 1 x nur: x FOGTBALL W. L. GRIDDERS UNDEFEATED IN '38 THE BEST SEASON IN TEN YEARS Leon Dailey has yet to taste defeat as a football mentor. During the 1938 season the West Lafayette Red Devils defeated: Catholic High of South Bend, 7-0: Crown Point, 20-6: Hoopes- ton, Illinois, 27-73 Morocco, 26-Og tied jefferson of Lafayette, 0-03 and de- feated Rensselaer, 21-0, and Broad Ripple of Indianapolis, 7-0. Exceedingly well liked by the play- ers, as well as the student body and general public, Leon Dailey has estab- lished a record at West Side which would make most experienced coaches blink. Graduation in June of '39 will pre- sent Leon with quite a replacement problem, as those graduating seniors number fourteen. Those who will be missed by the Devil roster as well as Coach Dailey are: Norm Hill, Mike Puckett, Bud Shively, Rusty VerHoev- en, Chuck Lewis, Dick Douglas, John Sexson, Al Elward, Bob Riley, Dick Ham, Fred Hartman, Gene Collins. Don Heine, and Paul Brady. DEVILS DEEEAT CATHOLIC HIGH IN OPENER T-0 September 16, 1938 It took one perfectly executed play by the West Lafayette High School gridders to triumph over a hard fight- ing eleven from Catholic High, of South Bend. Midway in the Iirst quarter "Horsie" Riley, star local left half, gathered in a punt and started up the field bound for the goal. Eluding several tacklers, Riley was presented with sensational down field blocking by Mike Puckett. Having been stopped by the lone South Bend defender he Iateralled the pigskin to Co-Captain Hill, who chugged the remaining distance to score the lone touchdown of the game. Riley's placement was good, which put the score board at 7 to 0. From this point on out the two teams were quite evenly matched. Both the Devils and the Catholics showed extremely strong defensive ball. PAGE FORTH' West ivsiwl iwvx mm ui I End . KD ievill Local' I, . .

Led by sensational running by john Sexson, Red Devil co-captain, the W. L. team showed definite improvement over their play in their dedicatory game. Sexson climaxed his vicious attack when he pushed over for the Scarlets first score in the quarter. The second quarter saw both Riley and Elward score six and seven points respectively. The northemers were held without accomplishment during the first half. Their lone score occurred during the third frame when the Dev- iI's team was sprinkled with reserves. Dailey praised Sexson, Riley, and Elward in the local backfield. Coach Dailey's praise was also extended to the Scarlet tackles, guards, and center. Crippled W. l. Beals Illinois Team 27 lo 7 September 30, 1938 Coach Dailey's Scarlet gridders en- countered little clifiiculty as they ran roughshod over a Hoopeston, Ill., team, 27-7, on Meridian field. Starting the game without Bob Ri- ley, Dick Ham, and "Rusty" Ver- Hoven, the locals were jarred on the opening kickoff when Mike Puckett, veteran guard, was removed from the game with a severe mouth injury. Although it appeared that the Scar- lets might meet trouble against Hoopeston without these four, it was soon evident that the Devils had it all the way. "Al" Elward, local right half, was by far the star of this game, as he ac- counted for three touchdowns for W. L. "Fritz" Hartman, reserve back, car- ried the pigskin over the final strip for the Devils' other touchdown. The Hoopeston marker came in the last thirty seconds of play against a combination of West Side scrubs. The West Side superiority-even without several regulars - is ably shown in the first down column: West Side, 18: Hoopeston, 5. Morocco Gels Trouncing By Dailey Red Devils October 8, 1938 Once again the West Lafayette grid- ders took over the driver's seat by ringing up their fourth consecutive victory on Meridian Field Saturday as they definitely outclassed the Morocco eleven by a score of 26-0. The West Siders got off to a fine start as Elward starred by reeling off two touchdowns in the first quarter. Bob Dean accounted for another T. D. in the first quarter. Elward scored again in the third quarter to make the score 26-0. The clever signal calllng of Bob Mc- Afee accounted for many gains for the West Side eleven. The Scarlets' blocking and tackling looked like the "real McCoy" as the Devil forwards completely smothered all Morocco's offensive attempts. FIGHTING TEAM SUR- PRISES JEFF IN 0-0 TIE October 21, 1938 Eleven of the most vicious Red Devils ever to don W. L. football togs were absolute masters of the Jeff Bronchos in a scoreless tie held last night on the jeff Plateau. For four twelve-minute periods an unbeaten Jefferson team was pushed all over the field by Leon Dailey's lighting Red Devils. The game's result is a victim of sev- eral "ifs," namely: 1. If West Side had not been as- sessed so many time in the first quar- ter, experts believe they would have pushed over. 2. If the heart breaking pass from Riley to Elward on the goal stripe had been only a matter of inches righer, it is also believed that W. L. would have scored again. 5. If Fields' field goal had been one foot nearer, Jeff might have gained victory. Omitting the "ifs" which obviously do not count in the result, it was en- tirely the Scarlets' game. This is ably shown in the total yards gained col- umn, West Side, 2695 jeff, 1545 and also in the first downs column: West Side, 99 jeff, 7. The tie was definitely a moral vic- tory for the Dailey coached eleven. This was the first "victory" over Jeff by a West Side team since 1931. WEST SIDERS CINCH CROWN BY 20-0 WIN AT RENSSEIAER October 28, 1938 Leon Dailey's team was touted as one of the school's greatest after a brilliant win over the Rensselaer Bombers. One of the greatest elevens ever to wear the Scarlet and Gray of West Lafayette rolled over a fighting Rens- selaer outfit, 21-0, to pocket the mid- western conference crown for the sec- ond straight year. ln the crown capturing contest, Al Elward, Horsey Riley, and john Sex- son played fine ball in the backfield, while Norm Hill, Mike Puckett, and Bill Cole gave West Side a forward wall which repulsed two very danger- ous threats. Two regulars, Bud Shively, guard, and Dick Douglas, quarterback, were removed from the game with injuries received during the winning of the championship. Elward was high scorer with two touchdowns, while Sexson put the oth- er six points in the bucket by a line plunge. The Bomber's forward wall was lit- erally ripped open continuously. The W. L. forwards executed extreme ac- curacy in blocking and tackling their heavy opponents. Broad Ripple Sullers loss AI Wesl Side November 4, 1938 Sexson's brilliant 84 yard run early in the second quarter proved the de- ciding margin as Leon Dailey's "Scrap- pin" Red Devils wound up their schedule as one of the few undefeated teams in the state. Fourteen W. L. seniors donned their football togs for the last time tonight as they prepared for their tussle with Broad Ripple, of Indianapolis, who were co-city champs last season. After a Broad Ripple kick had gone out on the W. L. 16, John Sexson, pow- erful Devil fullback, took the apple on an off-tackle play which developed into a touchdown run, after all but one of the Ripple men were on their backs. Johnnie drove right over this fella to score W. L.'s winning T. D. This play was comparable to the wonderful play of the first W. L. game this year, which also proved extremely valuable. PAGE FORTY-ONE FRED HARTMAN "Fritz", reserve back, was a very dependable man when needed. He showed his under- estimated power in the Hoopeston game when he scored through the middle of the defense. Fred was a very able relief man for both the fullback and quarterbacks. NORMAN HILL "Norm", first left tackle and co-captain, was like a block of granite in the Devil line. He was able to tear the interfer- ence up when a play came his way and when on the weak side he crashed through speed- ily. On offense he opened up the holes with ease. JOHN SEXSON "Johnnie", first fullback and co-captain, was the boy who could gain those two or three yards needed for a first down. His legs were packed with dy- namite, and his ability to com- mand the team was unbeliev- able. "Sex" was very consist- ent in his running ability. MAX PUCKETT "Mike", first right guard, gave, as well as took, his share of punishment to the opponents. He was able to tear open near- ly any line, and his defensive play was extremely good. He is Number One, of the Kickoff Kids, a society restricted to the regular guards. HAROLD SHIVELY "Bud", first left guard, played his first year as regular this season. Number Two, of the Kickoff Kids, was able to give and take with the biggest of them. He was a polished blocker and excelled on de- fensive play. DONALD HEINE "Don", reserve end, was one of the best blocking fiankmen of W. L. this year. He pos- sessed ample weight to make the opponents know when they had been hit. Don always did his share of defensive play. LYNN VER HOEVEN "Rusty", first right tackle, was very essential to Coach Dai- ley's weight problem. This was his first year on the Red Devil varsity. "Rusty" had ample ability to block and "jam up" the offense of the opponent r - fi X x RICHARD DOUGLAS ,I "Doug", alternating quarter- back, was a very fine field gen- eral. Although hindered throughout the season by an injured shoulder, Dick proved extremely valuable to the team. He was quite an asset to Coach Dailey, when things got tough. EUGENE COLLINS "Dutch", reserve tackle, was a great assistance to both regu- lar tackles. It was often he who was sent in as a replace- ment when one of them was injured. "Dutch" showed his best brand of ball in the crash- ing he did during the Broad Ripple game. ALLEN ELWARD "Al", first right halfback, was the third highest scorer in the state. Although handicapped by lack of weight, he was rec- ognized as one of the toughest backs in the conference. "Al's" kicking and running kept the Scarlets in the lead in many occasions. ROBERT RILEY "Horsey", first left halfback, was the "sensation" runner of the backs. Bob was very ac- curate in his passing and kick- ing, and was very able in his open field running. "Horse" got away for several long runs, during the season, which were extremely valuable to the Scarlets. CHARLES LEWIS "Chuck", first right end, was definitely a defensive threat. Charlie was always jamming up the interference and stop- ping the ball carrier. He pos- sessed ample ability to open holes in the defensive line when they were needed also. RICHARD HAM "Dick", alternating right end, was the most accurate pass catcher on the Red Devil ros- ter this year. "Hambone" was quite active on defense as well as offense. Due to a knee in- jury Dick was kept on the side lines frequently. PAUL BRADY "Paul", reserve back, was one of the boys in whom Coach Dailey placed much faith. Paul, as was all reserve backs, was very versatile in his pass- ing and running. It was often necessary for him to play any of three positions. PAGE FORTY-THREE BASKETBALL RED DEVIL NETTERS TAKE I6 FOR 22 RED DEVIL NETMEN HAVE FINE SEASON UNDER LEON DAILEY In his first year as coach, Dai- ley, former Horace Mann and Purdue star, directed the West Side Red Devils through a very successful basketball season this year. Dailey's Devils established a record of 16 wins and 6 losses during the regular season and the sectional tourney. The Devil team was closely nosed out of the tourney by Jef- ferson of Lafayette in the sec- tional finals, after having been victorious over Dayton, West Point, and Klondike. They are on record as the highest scoring team in the state sectional series, having scored 185 points in their sectional play. During the regular season the Scarlets were victorious over Remington, Morocco, Wolcott, Veedersburg, Clark of Ham- mond, Gerstmeyer of Terre Haute, jefferson of Lafayette, Brook, Delphi, Williamsport, Flora, Otterbein, and Riley of South Bend. Those teams which defeated the Scarlets are Leb- anon, Brazil, Rensselaer, Wina- mac, and Attica. Although Dailey had no set first five, the following boys were alternated for the starting posi- tions: Bob Riley, Dick Douglas, Laverne Marsh, Carlton Marsh, Bob VanCamp, Bill Cole, and Paul Friend. Norm Hill was released from the squad early in the season be- cause of "doctor's orders." All of the first squad will grad- uate in june with the exception of Friend, C. Marsh, and Cole.

The 1938-39 model of the Red Devil hardwood machine looked like a fairly well oiled mechanism, while they defeated the Remington quintet with little difiiculty, 33 to 28. Prom- ising offensive ability was shown by the Marsh brothers, Bob Riley and Bob Van Camp, although defensive play was a little weak during nearly the entire fray. West Side jumped into the lead with the first whistle and led throughout the entire game. The Scarlets held a 17 to 7 advantage at the half and were threatened only by a ten point rally in the third quarter that dwindled an eleven point lead to a three point mar- gin. Scoring honors went to Riley, who netted 14 points, while Bob Van Camp and Carlton Marsh annexed ten. SCARLETS BEAT BEAVER FIVE Lafayette, Dec. 2. Improved passing and defensive play gave the West Siders an easy vic- tory over Morocco's hardwood five, 43 to 27. The scoring was well distributed with the Marsh brothers accounting for eighteen points, while Riley and Bob Van Camp tossed in nine and six, respectively. Hill, Douglas and Friend played effective defensive games for the Red Devils, while Brady and Bill Van Camp both added to the relief rolls. W. L. FIVE COPS I THIRD DECISION Lafayette, Dec. 6. The Wolcott five threw a sufficient scare into the West Side camp before the Dailey charges nosed them out, 32 to 27. The West Siders didn't take the lead until the second quarter and it was a see-saw battle from then on with the Devils taking their final ad- vantage with only five minutes re- maining. L. Marsh's twelve points, combined with Riley's nine, made the larger part of the West Side score. while the rest of the Scarlets aided greatly with effective passing and bankboard play. TIGERS TAME WEST SIDERS The West Side Red Devils, greatly hindered without the services of "Stoop" Marsh, met their first defeat on their first visit to a foreign court, when the Lebanon Tigers came from behind in the last quarter to take the Lebanon, Dec. 9. decision, 36 to 29. The Scarlets, led by Bob Riley, who got 14 points, went into the lead at the beginning of the fray and held an eighteen to fifteen advantage at the intermission. This lead was overcome in the final stanza when a final Tiger drive enabled them to be the first to mar Coach Dailey's excellent record. RED VS. GREEN AS DEVILS WIN Veedersburg, Dec. 14. Following the theme song, "The Devil With the Devil Says Us," the Scarlets downed the Veedersburg Green Devils, 27-24 in a game that was made close only by the Veeders- burg rally in the closing minutes. The Red Devils, led by Douglas and Brady, who each grabbed eight points, led throughout the whole game, hold- ing a 25 to 16 halftime advantage, which dwindled under the pressure of the final Green Devil drive. SCARLETS SCALP CLARK PIONEERS Lafayette, Dec. 16. The Red Devils made their return- ing home, after two games away, a suc- cess by handing the George Rogers Clark Pioneers a 40 to 25 set back, after holding a 17-7 halftime advan- tage. Riley led the Scarlets with 22 points while Brady and Bob Van Camp added eleven to the total. Douglas and Col- lins played fine ball in their guard po- sitions on the defensive side, while boosting the score often. BOMBERS DEFEAT SCARLETS. 25 TO 23 Lafayette, Dec. 21. Poor shooting luck during the first half and radical passing throughout the fray were responsible for the second Scarlet defeat. The Red Devils, who only chalked up two field goals in the half, were victims of a 17-7 disadvan- tage at the intermission and the sec- ond half rally fell two points short to give the Rensselaer five a 25 to 23 decision. The Bombers went into an eleven to nothing lead before L. Marsh broke the ice for the Devils just as the first period ended. The Scarlet's final drive came in the last stanza when they out- scored the Rensselaer quintet nine points to two. "Nonnie" Marsh led the West Siders with eleven points, while Riley added six. RED DEVILS DOWN GERSTMEYER TECH Lafayette, Dec. 31. The Scarlet and Gray quintet cli- maxed the old year with a 39-21 vic- tory over the Gerstmeyer fTerre Haute! live, after leading only 16 to 14 at halftime and 24 to 19 at the end of the third period. The Devils' last quarter drive netted them a 37 to 19 advantage before the Tech five was able to score. Riley's 14 points combined with C. Marsh's 19 made up the larger part of the Scarlet score, while effective de- fensive games were played by Collins, Douglas and Friend. JEFFERSON DEFEATED BY RED DEVILS! Z5-IT Lafayette, jan. 4. The West Siders took a one game advantage over the jeff Bronchos for the 1938-39 athletic season by hand- ing them a 25-17 setback with reserves playing the entire final quarter. 13-5, 17-7 were the advantages at the end of the quarters. The scoring for the Red Devils was evenly distributed with L. Marsh and Riley getting 5 points a piece, while "Sammy" Van Camp grabbed four. The Scarlet and Gray defensive department, led by Dick Douglas, who held Jim Pechin to no score, played what was probably the best game thus far in the season. I' Xl' F l"l!H'l'Y-FIVE BASKETBALL LETTERMEN ii sti- ROBERT VAN CAMP RICHARD DOUGLAS PAUL BRADY "Sammy," playing his second year on the W. L. varsity, was one of the Devil's trickiest forwards. Although his magician-like passing and drib- bling gained most of the attention, Bob was extremely accurate for the floor and a very reliable defensive threat. LAVERNE MARSH "Stoop," new to W. L. this year, formerly of New Albany, was the Scarlet's most dangerous threat this season. Laverne was the key man to the team's spirit and "pepper." Marsh's six foot, three inches were very essential to the Devil attack. It can be noticed that four of the West Side defeats were suffered when "Stoop" was out of action due to ill health. ROBERT RILEY "Horsey," closing his third year as Red Devil co-captain, was high scorer in the Scarlet lineup. On the hardwood, Riley is most dangerous from the foul line. Teamed with "Big Stoop," he gave the West Sid- er's a very potent scoring duo. The loss of Riley will present W. L. with quite a vacancy in athletics. l'AU H F1 DIRTY-SIX "Doug," co-captain of the West Sider's, was the only starter under the six foot mark. He makes up for his small stature in his demon-like speed, dribbling, "pepper" and ac- curacy on long shots. Dick was one of the best of the defensive men on the Devil team. GENE COLLINS "Dutch," the unsung hero of the Devil roster, proved himself a de- mon on defense. He made one of the most reliable players on the squad, by hard work at practice ses- ion. What Riley and L. Marsh are to the offense-"Dutch" is to defense. Quiet in voice, Gene pre- serves all his spirits for the games, where he really puts forth. WILLIAM VAN CAMP "Bill," redheaded cousin to Bob, is one of the most accurate shooters on the Devil brigade. Bill kept the "pepper" up on the bench while the regulars were in action. I-Ie proved his worth as a very reliable relief man early in the season. Paul, ending his basketball career this season, was one of the boys who rendered the West Side team much service during the season. His as- sistance to the regulars proved quite helpful, at times, to the Devils. The Scarlet's found Paul's eye quite an advantageous factor in their victory marches. CARLTON MARSH "Ned," accompanying his big brother, Laveme, out of the "Deep South," has shown that he is one of the best defensive netters in the game. "Pawnee" will return next year to "slay 'em" with his threats for good old W. L. PAUL FRIEND "Dufe," playing his second year as a reserve, is registered as one of the best guards ever to land at West Side. "Dufe" is sure to prove one of the main cogs of the 1939-40 model of the W. L. H. S. basketball ma- chine. WILLIAM COLE "Bill," with his advantageous six feet, is known as a defensive threat for the West Siders. It is certain that Bill will also be one of the "Guns" of next year's team. ' wh BRAZIL OUINIET DOWNS WEST SIDERS Brazil, jan. 6. Playing against the southem brand of slow basketball and slower officials, the Scarlet and Gray colors faded into pink and white under the pressure of a 24-22 setback at the hands of the Brazil Blue Devils. After leading 19 to 15 at the beginning of the final period the Scarlets fell behind with three minutes remaining in the fray. Paul Brady led the losers with eleven points, while the remainder of the scoring was evenly distributed. The Red Devils' defense worked ef- fectively in the first and third quarters, holding the Brazil quintet to only one field goal each period. but crumbled in the second and fourth stanzas. BROOK BEATEN BADLY BY BATTLING DEVILS Brook, jan. 10. The Scarlet five got back on the winning wagon with an easy victory over Virgil Robbins' Brook quintet, 45 to 29. The Red Devils held a 27-14 ad- vantage at the end of the half, after being at a 9 to 7 disadvantage at the end of the initial period. Bob Riley injured his ankle in the closing minutes of the first half, after scoring 13 points on the Devils' side of the ledger: and was out-scored in the second half by L. Marsh with 14 points in the fight for scoring honors. "Dufe" Friend and Carlton Marsh added six points apiece, while Brady and Bob Van Camp played effective floor games for the Red Devils. DAILEY DEMONS DEFEAT DELPHI Delphi, jan. 13. Scoring half the points, "Stoop" Marsh led the West Siders to 28-26 victory over the Delphi Oracles after leading 19 to 12 at halftime. Along with Laverne's 14 points, Carlton shoved in six to give the Marshes 20 out of the Devil's 28. Riley, Brady, Collins and Friend furnished the re- maining count. The Scarlets led throughout the en- tire fray, holding a 11-2 advantage at the end of the first period and a 22-15 count at the end of the third stanza. With two minutes remaining in the contest the Devils were leading 28 to 18, when Long, of the Delphi quintet, pushed three "long" shots through and added a couple of free throws to give the game a thrilling finale. SCARLETS DROP BINGIES, 39-34 Lafayette, jan. 25. The Scarlets returned home after three games away and downed the Wil- liamsport Bingies 39 to 34, after lead- ing 21 to 13 at the intermission. The Bingies scored a free throw to start the tilt, but immediately lost their lead and never regained it. Riley led the locals with 17 points, while L. Marsh accounted for 12. Brady added five, while Douglas, Col- lins and Friend tossed in the remain- der. RED DEVILS OUT-ROUGH FLORA OUINTET, 48-22 Flora, jan. 27. Not being satisfied with the number of football trips they made, the Scar- let and Gray basketeers made a "foot- ball" trip to Flora and defeated the home team 48 to 22, while having 24 personal fouls called on them. While going down in defeat, the Flora five managed to get 19 fouls chalked up against them to make the roughest game of the season. Riley and Van Camp left the game on fouls, while Carlton Marsh, Laverne Marsh, Col- lins and Friend collected three apiece. Two of the Flora quintet left the game via the foul route, while the remainder of the players got at least two person- als apiece. Bob Riley took all scoring honors by gathering in 20 points, while Bob Van Camp and Paul Brady grabbed six and seven, respectively. SCARLETS DOWN OTTERBEIN FIVE Lafayette, Feb. 1. The West Side Red Devils found little difficulty in running over the Otterbein Red Devils, 25 to 12 and 34 to 16 advantages at the end of the first and third quarters, respectively. L. Marsh led the Devils' attack by nabbing 18 points, while the rest of the scoring was well divided. Every member of the Scarlet roster scored sometime throughout this tilt. RED DEVILS WIN AS RIFLEMEN MISEIRE Lafayette, Feb. 8. After leading 23 to 18 at the half, the West Siders went on to down the Riley CSouth Bendj Riflemen, 41 to 27. The Riflemen took the lead at the beginning of the fray, 6 to 1, and led until the end of the initial quarter, when the Red Devils put the game on an even basis, 9-9. The Scarlets then went on to take the lead for the re- mainder of the game. Riley and L. Marsh together ac- counted for 23 of the West Siders' points, with Riley collecting 14 and "Nonnie" 9. Bob Van Camp, Brady and C. Marsh pushed them in from the forward positions, while Friend and Douglas held up the guards. SCARLETS DROPPED BY WINAMAC, 29 TO 24 Lafayette, Feb. 17. The absence of the Marsh brothers and Bob Riley, due to injury, proved too much for the weakened West Side quintet, when it was handed its fourth setback of the season by Winamac, 29-24. The tilt was a see-saw battle most of the way with the Winamac five taking their final advantage late in the third period. The largest ad- vantage throughout the game was six points, which the visiting quintet held when they took their final lead. Scoring honors for the losers went to Brady and Collins, who collected 8 and 6, respectively, while no other Red Devil scored more than two points. RED RAMBLERS ROUT DEVILS Without the services of L. Marsh and minus Bob Riley and Bob Van Camp for half the tilt, the West Side Red Devils wound up a very good bas- ketball season with their second con- secutive defeat at the hands of the Attica Red Ramblers, 30 to 28. The fray "see-sawed" in the first half with the Red Devils going out in front 14-13 at halftime and then taking a 23 to 13 advantage midway in the third period. With five minutes re- maining in the fray, the Devils led 27 to 18, when a single handed nine point drive by Beedle, Ramblers' guard, put the game on an even basis. The Attica five took their winning lead in the final minute of play to give the Red Devils their fifth defeat in eighteen starts. Attica, Feb. 24. 1 Xl P Plllill SEVEN MINOR SPORTS BASEBALL REIGNS FIRST IN MINOR ATHLETICS Since 1932 the closing days of March have brought close to a score and a half of prospective batsmen and lielders out for dia- mond activities. Boasting an excellent record during the six years of baseball's existence at West Side, March 27 proved no exception to the rule, as nearly twenty-five base- ball players answered the call of Coach Dailey. Losing only one of last year's hrst ten, Dailey expects to con- tinue his winning ways with a line baseball season. This year's mound staff will probably con- sist of Collins, Riley, Brady, and Douglas with Bill VanCamp and Jerome Hill on the receiving end. A fine infield composed of Buttons, Marsh brothers, Brady, Riley, and Douglas, backed up by a likely looking outfield of McAfee, Friend, Shively. and Brady, will complete the Scarlet roster. I I 1 I INTRAMURAL ATHLETES The intramural athletics, for the athletic minded boys unable to compete with the varsity teams for various reasons, was under the direction of Carl Ham- mer. Basketball games were sched- uled between the several teams, organized under various senior captains. The captains of the teams were Lewis, Heine, Ham, VerHoeven, Puckett, T u r l e y, and Hamilton. No accurate rec- ord was kept of the games, be- cause they were played entirely for the boys' enjoyment. GOLF AT W. L. March 26th brought eight golfers, with clubs pointing to the state tourney, out for the open- ing rounds of the course. Since 1930, when J. P. Wayne origin- ated the golf team at West Side, the Red Devils have set the pace for the remaining teams in the Mid West Conference, dropping that title but twice. TUCKER TEACHES TENNIS Since 1928, Leslie Tucker has coached the Red Devil Tennis team without falling below a sec- ond place in the Mid West Con- ference meet. This year the team was re-or- ganized and Mr. Tucker is look- ing forward to a good season. Otto Steele, Grant Sutcliffe, re- turning from last year's team, and several seniors will compose this year's Scarlet racket com- bination. WEST SIDE GOES IN EOR TRACK Coach Dailey has several meets scheduled for the initial year of track's existence here in the Scarlet camp, among which are a three-way meet fCraw- fordsville, West Side, and jeffj, a six-way meet with six of the Mid-West Conference teams, and several meets with individ- ual schools such as Rensselaer, Brook, and jeff. m ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION As a result of the school-wide election in September of 1938, the following members were chosen to the West Lafayette High School Athletic Associa- tion: John Sexson, president, Al- len Elward, vice-president, Paul Friend, secretary: Max Puckett, treasurer, Paul Brady and Nor- man Hill, senior representatives, Charles Ainsworth, Willia m Cole, and Kathleen Gannon, jun- ior representatives.

It also passes judgment on the selection of boys to receive these awards, made by the coach. The Finance Board takes care of the income and expenses. All athletic equipment, bus fares, opponents' expenses, officials' fees, and police fees must be paid by this board. FAITH WAYNE IEADS WEST SIDE GIRLS IN ATHIETIC ACTIVITIES Completing its third year of organization, the Girls' Athletic Association has had a very suc- cessful season. In the fall, organized soccer was played, and on one after- noon a week, organized hikes were taken. Following these ac- tivities, the basketball season was opened. Color teams were first organized, then class teams. From these teams, the varsity squad was chosen. Sixteen girls composed the team. Those re- ceiving the honor were: Barbara Ford, co-captain, Hazel Top- ping, co-captaing Louise Moore, Barbara Sanders, Frances Allen, Isabel Brady, Mary Helen Boyd, Helen Jensen, Faith Wayne, Ro- wena Jamison, Eileen Fites, Jenevieve Schweidler, Jane Ad- ams, Lois Ver Hoeven, Ruby Chaffee, and Ruth Holden. The annual varsity-alumnae game was not played as there was an influenza epidemic on the scheduled date. G. A. A.

"Nick" found the will in an ash can at the rear of W. L. H. S. Evidently it had been discarded by the annual staff. Mr. De Popolas says, quote, "I'm not knowing which is stink- ing worse-the will or the gar- bage. But, every man is having a right to his own opinion. May- be you are liking it. If so, you are being nuts," end of quote. H a v i n g been reconditioned, the will is herein presented to the Annual buyers of West La- fayette.
