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.

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.
