You of '46 have known
The stress of war
Witl1in your youthg
Have noted with inquiring eye
The man-made forces
Plied to gain once more security.
You of '46 in school
The shocking power
Created to destroy the foes
Of things men fought for-
Freedom, justice, truth, and charity.
You of '46 have heard
The call for bread
From other lands,
Deplored the slack of industry,
And sensed the fear of secret
Plans that threaten our democracy.
You of '46 will heed
And will not fail
The world of your ripe energyg
Restore to us its heritage,
Love and peace and sweet serenity.
To you, Miss Sinks, we, the CLASS
of 1946, dedicate this Annual. Through'
all the years of our school life we have
known you or known of you through
older brothers and sisters. Ifor us you will
always exemplify the competent leader,
the sympathetic counselor, the kind
friend, the sincere and gracious teacher.

MR. WILLIAM FLOYD
The era of PEACE coincided with the begin-
ning of a new chapter in the history of the
West Lafayette school system. MR. WILLIAAM
FLOYD, an old friend of the CLASS of 1946,
became Superintendent of Schools. We had
traveled with lVIr. Floyd for several years pre-
viously and were not surprised that his efficient
administration had won for him this high honor.
He has done much to make us alert to the oppor-
tunities of a new world, and we are indebted to
him for a hroadening outlook toward multiple
fields of endeavor.
BOARD OF EDUCATION
Although we have had no personal acquaint-
ance with the SCHOOL BOARD, we of the
CLASS of 1946 have felt the security which
comes with the hacking of a group of three men
who keep our hest interests in mind. The proh-
lems of a new age concern the schools greatly,
and we owe, to a great extent, our high rating
to the following: Fred B. Comingore, Presi-
dent: Karl H. Kettelhut, Secretary, Burr N.
MR. LESLIE TUCKER
In mis world of many changes it was good to
know that a familiar face would greet us from
the principal's office. Friendly, just, and kind,
MR. LESLIE TUCKER has inconspicuously
continued to mold our curriculum and activities
into a satisfying whole. To talk with him in his
office or to see him stride down the halls makes
us proud to salute him as our principal.
Everyone, it seems, steps into the office at least
once a day, and there MRS. ELOISE LEVIS
cheerfully answers a multitude of questions and
performs her numerous duties with efficient dis-
patch. Typing tests for teachers, whirling the
mimeograph machine, taking telephone mcs-
sages, helping with Curriculums are just a few
of the countless demands on her time. We leave
the office reassured that school is really a friend-
ly place in which to work.
Four years of English being required for grad-
uation in our high school, we spend much time
in the west end, first floor of the building, lcarn-
ing to read, write, spell, speak under the direc-
tion of MISS RUTH SINKS and MRS. HAR-
HIETT MUELLER, or as sophomores under MR.
HOWARD EVANS. The English language and
comprehension of the written word take new
significance in an age when the United Nations
struggle for understanding of one another in
order to create and maintain PEACE and
l'ROSPERl'l'Y for the world of tomorrow.
Speech classes this year have reflected the
current problems created by a new world of
Peace. In MRS. HARRIETT MUELLER'S
classes we carried on spirited debates and dis-
cussions on such subjects as universal military
training and atomic bomb control. Each week
two students met with Jefferson and St. Francis
representatives for panel discussions on WBAA.
For the first time since the outbreak of the war.,
we were able to attend the state oration contest
at Terre Haute.
lVlathematieal precision is necessary to con-
vert war efhciency to the needs of PEACE in
our time. MISS BERNICE FITES and MR.
CARMEN FABIAN help us lay the foundation
for usefulness in zu worlal of prosperity. When
the CLASS of 1946 plays its part in the building
of helicopters, magnificent highways, television,
rockets to the moon, we shall re 111s11i ther with
appreciation our llasie training in nlatlleinatif-s.
A new aspect of science became a topic of dis-
cussion in the physics and chemistry lahora-
tories this year. An atomic homh and its con-
temporary significance Was a Vital issue to the
CLASS of 1946, which will he a deciding factor
in its control. MISS MARY BUSHUNC not
only gave us the background for recent devel-
opments lnut gave us an insight into the world
In a world of progress toward permanent
PEACE, we, the CLASS of 1946, will play an
important rolv. MR. CHESTER EDDY antl
MR. HOWARD EVANS have pointf-tl out to
us thc way in which history repeats itself, many
times with disastrous results. To know vvents
behind the results will help us to contrihutf- our
share with intelligent-0 anml foresight.
Une of the first of our former staff members
to return from the war was MR. CARL HAM-
MER, who took up his duties in the middle of
the semester to teach us the ways of peaceful
living and economic stability. We have learned
of the great problems which are threatening our
peace and security. We have learned the work
of the government in peace and war and can
now better understand the problems we face
in trying to keep at peace with the whole world.
Under the able leadership of lVIlSS BELLE
CUULTER, we have relived the days of eon-
quest with those valiant Roman eenturians,
lcgates and scholars. Through those weeks of
Latin study, we have learned among other things
that "aqua" means water and 'ate amow means
l love you. Those years once so dead have lie-
eome real to us and the people so strange have
eome alive in our minds. The Romans of yes-
terday have brought us eloser to our friends, the
Romans of today.
MRS. GLADYS ISAAC guided us through our
study of el Espanol with mucho gusto. We have
enjoyed reading about the fiestas and holidays
of the colorful Mexicans, as well as studiously
preparing our daily grammar and vocabulary
Latin America has become an interesting
neighbor whose language will not be too great
a barrier when we, the CLASS of 1946, cooper-
ate with this country on the problems of peace-
The shop class, under the leadership of MR.
WALTER WOLEVER, has kept abreast with
the world of PEACE. Metal working has large-
ly replaced wood working. This change was
brought about by acquiring new equipment by
purchase and by allocation of war surplus ma-
tcrial. We now have two steel lathes, a power
saw, three drill presses, and an Allison airplane
engine. With these new machines the students
have learned practical experience in many dif-
ferent lines. ln this year of VICTORY we have
become aware of the needs of thc time. With
serious intent we, both boys and girls, have
studied Mechanical Drawing that we may have
a part, perhaps, in solving the housing problem
and in engineering new ideas for happy living.

Economics Department offers all a girl needs to
help her create the model home of tomorrow.
The laboratories consist of six individual kitch-
ens furnished with latest equipment. The living-
dining room provides a lovely setting in which
school organizations serve on their social occa-
sions. In the spacious sewing room, MRS.
RUTH HAMLIN teaches First Aid, Home Man-
agement. Child Care, Clothing and Textiles, all
of which prepare a girl for everyday living in
the world of tomorrow.

Our l1igl1 school curriculum would not he
complete without some sort of physical education
course. That hrings us to MR. ROBERT BECKER
again, under whose direction the hoys started
out in the fall on the football field. During this
time they chased the pigskin over the field or
did calisthenics. Wllell the Gridiron season
faded out and old ,lack Frost came around, the
classes were held in school. Now it was Hhow
fast you should drive and what makes red cor-
Health and Safety was a "favorite,' of many
of the fellows. ln early spring, after Mr. Becker
had hroadened the classes' acquaintance with
these worthy suhjects, they went hack to the
field again. The weather at first might not have
been just right for shorts and hasehall hut that
didn't hother the hoys.
This yeaufs uelivities have heen greatly in-
ereasecl clue to the enrl of the war. Though we
have no gym, we spend nine weeks of each
semester outfloors nnfler the instruction of MISS
BERNICE FITES. Girls who belong to the
Girlsi Athletic Assoeiation, sponsored in our
sehool hy Miss Fites, were allowed to play tennis
on the Purrlue tennis courts, go howling, anfl
enter several arehery contests. Activities which
we enjoy in gym classes are tumbling, soccer,
speedhall, and volleyball. These will he in-
ercased when the new gymnasium is built.

Without the Art Department and the continu-
ous effort and help of MRS. GWEN HAMMER
we would be unable to express our original ideas
and feelings as we try to better ourselves in
painting, poster-making, sculpturing, clay mod-
eling, and leather Works. This is one class where
we appreciate the criticisms of our fellow artists
as it always helps us to achieve the praise we
are all longing for. In a world of PEACE domi-
nated by science and mechanics, the love of
beauty and its expression plays an important
role in the understanding of the cultural back-
ground of other people upon whom we depend
to keep the PEACE.
Oh, those blank keys on the typcwriterl At
first you doubt if you will ever remember what
Unger goes where for the A B and C's. Finally
after clicking away for one year, you feel that
you can type without making too many mistakes.
Oh, just for one peep at MR. FRANK REP-
LOGEIIS little ured book" of answers so that
we could find that one little mistake that means
the whole problem is wrong. Not only enabling
one to keep accurate records, bookkeeping can
be used for personal uses as well as business
All those queer little lines and symbols may
look as if ucbickery chicki, got lost and left his
tracks all over the blackboard. But all those
who have mastered tbose lines and symbols have
accomplished a useful and time-saving method
to read and write.
The hand, directed hy MR. MARSHALL
HOWENSTEIN, has added much to the enthusi-
asm attending our pep sessions and games. The
stirring marches and other zcstful numhcrs re-
sult from careful training in musical harmony
and cooperative effort.
The orchestra, too, has won recognition under
Mr. Howenstein's tutelage. We of the CLASS of

1946 who do not help to produce the music have
found it very inspiring to study Civics in nearby
rooms in rhythm with a dreamy waltz or to
work trig problems to the melodic tones of a
sonata. The orchestra was a part of the Com-
mencement program, and we shall not forget
the strains of music that accompanied our
march down the aisle toward a diploma.

Freshmen, sophomores, juniors- and now, seniors
about to graduate! Wal', bombs, rations, accelerated
programs, and now-peace! We, the CLASS of '46,
have been through it all, and what happiness it
brought when V-E Day and V-J Day preceded our
senior year! It was like coming out of the shadows
into the light. For awhile we felt the lessening of
tension of war years, but soon we realized that we
must gird ourselves to help win a greater victory- a
permanent peace for the world of tomorrow.
Each year has seen us grow in stature and in power
to think and to speak intelligentlyg each year has
brought its serious moments tempered with the sweet-
ness of gaietyg eaeh year will bring remembered joys
of our days at old West Side.
Looking hack over our young lives, we realize that growing up has been a memorable experi-
ence, and one that has passed all too quickly. We have come a long way together since we first
started to schoolfand yet, those happy and carefree days of childhood seem to have been only
a short while ago. That was the time when we lived only in the present, for our past was too
unimportant and our future too vast. It was good to be alive, and the world was a grand place
in which to live. Then war came and we saw history being made before our very eyes.
Bringing hack fond memories is one of the joys of life, so now let us review the highlights of
our school years together.
lt was twelve years ago, in 1934, that we first met at Morton School, little dreaming of the
things in store for us. Uur first year was spent in kindergarten, playing games and learning to
express ourselves, to cooperate with each other, and to obey our teachers.
In the first grade we really began our education. We were taught to keep our desk drawers
neat and orderly and also to be quiet and attentive when the teacher was talking.
The next few years were filled to the brim with readin', writin', and irithmetie, the convoca-
tions given each week by a different class, Valentine boxes, Christmas and Hallowe'en parties,
dancing classes, spelling bees, recess periods of blackman, soccer, or games of "erasure tag"
indoors on rainy days.
How grown-up we felt when we entered the fifth grade upstairs and the teacher thought it
was no longer necessary to peer at our teeth each morning to see if we had brushed them!
We passed into the sixth grade, and for the first time were the 'abig shots". The important
events that year were a Christmas cantata and a Colonial Day program, and then promotion to
the 7B, leaving Morton School behind.
Starting in at Junior High made us feel we were really growing up, even though we were
underelassmen once again. Departmental work was something new for us, now our class periods
were each one hour long and we had a different teacher for each subject. At Junior High, too,
there were clubs to join and activities in which we could take part.
As eighth graders, our class went to Indianapolis in chartered buses to see our state legislature
in action. About this time, too, current events suddenly became important to us-for our
country was at war.
We were full-fledged freshmen when the next year rolled around. We kept our books in lockers
instead of desks, and began to study algebra, biology, and foreign languages. We went on biology
field trips and made collections of butterflies, hugs, and plants, and had our first taste of labora-
tory work. Even though we were the old-timers of the school, we still got a big bang out of
sliding down the chutes during fire drills.
The next year couldn't come too soon, for then at last we entered Senior High. The confusion
and bewilderment of the first few days soon wore off and we gradually settled into the routine
of our new life. We'll never forget the rush for our school paper, the Scarlette, our Junior play,
Wllhe Nutt Family", unending cafeteria lines, the football banquets following our successful
seasons, the fun of attending the out-of-town games and the superior feeling when our small
crowd cheered the team to victory, doing chem experiments and wondering what would happen
next, the cluttered floors after the exchange of name cards, the privileges that went with a pair
of senior cords, then ending our high school career with a gala week that had a touch of sadness
-it was our last one together, and even then we were missing some of the boys who had left for
While we have studied history, most of us have secretly dreamed of being present at some of
those important events, and seeing with our own eyes the things that others centuries later would
read about, remember, and consider important. That dream has come true. With the end of the
most devastating war of all times have come new hopes for a better world, and new fears, for
the introduction of a new era-the atomic age-has left us in a state of bewilderment and
unrest. It is significant that peace should come at the beginning of our senior year, for we shall
he the leaders of tomorrow, and the future of the world will rest upon our shoulders.
Now that the time has come to graduate, some of us are reluctant to leave, and others are eager
to be on their way, but every one of us will carry forever with us the memories of a happy time

Every year, the faculty of the West Lafayette High School elects fifteen per
cent of the students in the senior class to the National Honor Society.
The National Honor Society is a national organization, instituted for the four-
fold purpose of creating enthusiasm for scholarship, stimulating a desire for
rendering service, promoting worthy leadership, and encouraging the develop-
ment of character.
In this year, 1946, these qualities are particularly pertinent to the work at
hand: the maintenance of a world at peace, and the furtherance of world

Our days at ,lunior High seem long ago, but we, THE CLASS OF 1946, remem-
ber with appreciation the basic things we learned, which helped us to enter
Senior High with more eonlidenee and poise. Looking back, we must have been
very carefree and gay during our ,lunior High days, and no doubt '6dif'fieult" in
the eyes of the faculty. Now that we are leaving high school, we reeall grate-
fully the inspiration and friendliness of our teaellers.

This has been a very busy year at Junior High School. A new principal, Mr.
Ray Albright, helped students to strike a happy balance between work and
play which gave many opportunities for leadership as well as scholarship.
One of the organizations which includes many responsible oiiices is the Senate,
which is sponsored by Mrs. Lydia Gowdy. Louis Carr served as President,
Barbara Blakeslee, Vice President, and John Lefforge, Secretary-Treasurer.
Committee chairmen were Jo .Anne Kingsolver, Social, Helen Lecklitner, Lost
and Found, Harold Bamey, Locker, Vivian York, Ways and Means, Bob Clem,
Messenger, Rae Asher, Drives, Oliver Long, Improvement, and Louis Carr,
The Girls' Club, under the sponsorship of Mrs. Elizabeth Leer and Mrs. Hazel
Cooper, was active in taking charge of pep sessions and tea dances. Highlights
of the season were a Newcomers, tea, Parent-Daughter banquet and an Intra-
mural banquet honoring the winning basketball team. Betty Schroyer has
served as president, Ruth Ann Parkinson, Vice President, Anne Moon, Secre-
tary, and Bonnie Burns, Treasurer.
Eighty boys took part in the intramural basketball play. Mr. J. C. Cornell,
coach, chose as captains Morrison, Graves, Cope, Graham, and Comingore.
Morrison's team took first place in these preliminary skirmishes. During the
second semester, Graham, Kreibel, Lutz, Butler, Dodds, and Comingore cap-
tained teams. Kreibel's team, consisting of Volk, Willis, Hostetter, Mills, Pence,
and Kreibel, were honored guests at the intramural banquet.
A Girls, Athletic Association, independent of Senior High, was organized this
year for the purpose of organized play in ping pong, volleyball, basketball, end-
ball, and softball. With Mrs. Clarice Clanin as faculty leader, the thirty-seven
members were headed by Jo Anne Kingsolver, President, Martha Sturm, Vice
President, Anne Moore, Secretary-Treasurer.
The Junior High choir, which is elective to students from grades seven, eight,
and nine, assisted in the presentation of a Christmas pageant, VISION OR
CHARTRES, with Ann Butler accompanying. The choir also assisted at the
Easter service. Mrs. Helen Howenstein was the director.
Frequent convocations have been profitable and interesting. Besides the
Christmas and Easter programs, there have been Navy Day observance, several
long films, and the production of a portion of MIDSUMMER NIGHTS' DREAM
by the ninth grade English class with Mrs. Leer directing.
We, the CLASS of 1946, congratulate Junior High School upon its fine activity
program. As we go out into the world of tomorrow, we are confident that you
who will be taking our places soon, will fulfill the promises of efficient leadership.

So many things to do-yet how bored we would
become if we didn't have all those interesting activi-
ties to plan and to attend. Sinee responsibilities are
so numerous, almost every student in school has op-
portunity to prove his dependability. To plan a club
meeting, to make a poster, to decorate for a dance.
to make the punch-these, however trivial in them-
selves, contribute to a democracy-a working together
which becomes our invaluable asset to citizenship.
We, the CLASS of 1946, have assumed our share of
leadership during this year and we pass on to the
unrlerclassmen the fun and satisfaction that comes
through activities planned and executed to the height
of oneis efficiency.
xvllill eould have been better than to have our senior year one of PEACE after
having lived so many preeious days under the shadow of war? The year 1945-1946
has been a forward looking year. Wie are proud to present to you the 1946 SCARLET
AND GRAY with the hope that this year may be the beginning of things for you in a
world of tomorrow. Witli the able assistance of MH. CARMEN FABIAN we have
enjoyed Compiling your memories and ours.

a cross section of student thoughts and ideas on school government to the faculty.
Some of the outstanding activities of the year have been arranging the back-
to-school dance, selecting the cheerleaders, planning the activity tickets, nomi-
nating the candidates for football queen, arranging the dances after games, and
sponsoring the drives for such charities as the infantile paralysis and Red Cross

W'orld War Il taught the value of strong bodies, disciplined
emotions, and alert senses. Although military training is not a
part of the school system, the necessity for building physical
soundness is still a major factor of the extra-curricular program
in this time of peace. lntra-mural and inter-school competition
afford those character building qualifications which the United
Nations will need in maintaining justice and fair play.
We, the CLASS of 1946, have been a part of the school spirit
which has winged our teams to victory or glorious defeat. With
a new gymnasium and better athletic facilities as future products
of peacetime, we are sure the athletics of West Lafayette schools
will continue to create the sportsmanship characteristic of true
The RED DEVILS opened their 1945 football
season by losing a hard fought game to a veteran
BRONCHO team across the river by a margin
WEST SIDE, however, bounced back to an
I8-14 win over WASHINGTON of Indianapolis.
Fine running by the hackfield along with Mae-
Donald's bull's-eye passing gave impetus to the
first victory of the year.
On a muddy field the W. L. team trampled its
opponent, ELWOOD. Each time the ball was
Carried, the backfield men were sure of gaining
because of the superior blocking of the line.
With improved team work this second victory
was chalked up by the score of 19-0.
Our next invader was the CRAWFORDS-
VILLE squad which proved a formidable op-
ponent during the first half. Hudlow, Collings,
and Swindler came through, however, and the
score at the end of the game read 20-7.
WEST SIDE next traveled to PERU and won
a well-played game by the narrow margin of
Q fa' .Sn , ,
20-19. A thrilling moment came when lsenharger
intercepted a pass and ran 65 yards for a touch-
down. Lang, along with the rest of the line,
proved a match for the Peru squad.
A thus far victorious RENSSELAER team was
WEST SIDE'S next victim. The fighting squad
from the North could not solve the versatile
technique of the RED DEVILS, who claimed
their fourth victory with a score of 19-13.
WEST SIDE continued its winning streak by
trouncing FRANKFORT to the tune of 19-7.
Hudlow and Collings were again a constant
threat to the opponent, and Sidwell and Conk-
right were outstanding linemen in this game.
The second game with Jeff proved to be our
second loss. Kiser, Creson, and Payne led the
line in gallant defensive-offensive play, and the
score, 19-7, does not tell the whole story of a
stuhlxornly fought contest.
The snappiest and most exciting game of the
year was played at BLOOMINGTON. Through
brilliant execution, W. L. came from behind to
win this last game of the season, 26-13. The
entire liackfield, along with Gildersleeve and
Shideler, played fine ball.
So ended the football season with six wins and
two losses. The team co-captained hy Parkinson
and Allen and coached by Bob Becker made
West Side a worthy opponent with a reputation
to sustain in years to come.
WEST HIDE 33 - GREENCASTLE 16
The Red Devils scored their initial win of the season
and the only one of the schedule. excluding the Sectional,
on the night of January 11. at the Purdue Fieldhouse hy
crushing a weak hut gallant quintet front Greencastle. The
offensive part of the game was left up to Don Caldwell
and Roy Conkwright. with Uovs pouring 6 haskets through
the loop for 12 points. and Roy getting 3 points on 3 has-
kets and 2 foul shots. Wfith Dale Collings' excellent re-
bounding and the beautiful guarding of the visitors lay
lsenharger and Friend. Greencastle was limited to only 5
baskets. The xshole team played superbly the entire game.
VVEST SIDE 31- fl"0Wl,ER 33
Playing one of the lrest games of the season, the hard
fighting Devils took a hitter two pointed defeat at the
hands of Fovsler fa team tllat had lost only two games all
seasoni. 33-31, on the evening of February 9. Through the
shooting efforts of Capt. Carl Isenharger the Scarlefs
forged their may into a 15-13 half-time lead. ln llte second
half it was the other guard. Bill Creson. who kept the
West, Siders close on the heels of the talented team front
Benton County. Wlkei' and Bill together made 19 of
Lfs 33 points, Isenharger getting 8 and Creson 11.
The team lrattled lerrifically throughout and with just a
little lurch might easily have lreen the victors.
WEST SIDE 35----CLARKS HILL 26
West Side advanced to their second game of the 1916
Sectional Ivy defeating a hattling group of liaslsetlmallers
froln Clarks Hill, 35-26. on the morning of February 22.
The hrigllt sunlight streaming through the windows didn't
hother the Red Devils a hit as they completely dominated
the play throughout. Perhaps the liiggest contribution to
the West Side victory was made lay the lanky ,lim Wilsciti,
who turned in a matchless performance at center, with
wonderful rebounding, hy way of tip ins. "Willie', racked
up I0 points. High point man for W. L. was Don Cald-
well, who made 13 points. The game. hon ever, vs as a team
performance and a team victory.
DOW CALDVVELL played at one of the forward posts
throughout the season and was in practically every game.
Dow usually came out as high scorer and at the end ol
the year was voted honorary captain.
BOY CONKRIGHT held the other regular forward post
for most of the season. Honey was a tremendous scrapper
and a real ball hawk. W. L. will see him again next year.
DALE COLLINCS very capably handled the center posi-
tion. Next to Caldwell, he w as the most consistent scorer
on the team. In addition to his scoring efforts. Rip's fine
rebounding was a great help to the team.

season and played a good all around game at guard. Ice.

much to his opponent's distress.
BOB FRIEND rounded out the first five and played in
the other guard position. Bobby was in his first year of
varsity competition and no doubt will be heard from in
the next two or three years.
JACK ALLEN played on the team until he joined the
Navy. The loss of Chick was felt by the Bed Devils.
BILL CRESON. a senior. saw a lot of action for West Side
during the latter part of the season when he really was a

capably filled his position when called uopn.
JIM VVILSON. a senior and substitute center, starred for
Wlest Side in the opening game of the sectional. He was
voted the 'Lmost improved playerw of the year.
JOHN SOUTHWORTH. CHARLES DYE, and BOB
PBYOB were other players who saw considerable action
and all of whom will be back next year.
WEST SIDE opened its track season on Leslie Field
by bowing to Frankfort, 64-45. Klinger and Leslie set
new field records in the half mile and shot put re-
spectively. Ryder and Jordan were also outstanding in
the West Side camp.
The RED DEVIL teamsters came back to win their
initial victory four days later from Elwood, 612 to
4716. Bill Leslie, Henry Ryder, and Don Davis again
set new records, supported by two very speedy men.
Klinger and Gildersleeve, in the half mile and 440
respectively. The squad had improved greatly since
the former contest.
The following week, Fowler provided our second
defeat in three meets by a 63-46 setback. Leslie., with
a 43 feet 3 inch put of the shot, broke his former
record for the third time in as many meets. Lyndall
Jordon was the high point man for the Red Devils
with eight points.
W. L.'s cinder men then crossed the river to do
battle with an experienced Jeff team. Davis, Ryder,
Q jmck 7945
and Brown stood for W. L. by winning the mile run,
120 high hurdles, and pole vault. The final score stood
85-29 after a hard fought meet.
The Red Devils then traveled to Monticello to win
their second meet in a three-way contest. Davis set a
new field record in the mile run. Ryder, Klinger,
Jordon and Leslie stood out in the W. L. camp. Leslie
once more set a field record in the shot put.
The W. L. thinlies a week later traveled to Kokomo
to compete in the Kokomo Relays. The Red Devils
took Sth place in Class B. Leslie was high scorer for
West Side. Leslie placed second in the shot put.
Klinger placed third in the 1000 yard run. This wasn't
so bad for W. L. considering the number of schools
entered in the meet.
West Side won a four-way meet on their home field
with a total of 60 points. Monticello placed second and
Kentland took third. Ryder again took the 120 high
and 200 low hurdles. Davis lopped off a winning mile
once more. Mile relay was won by the speedy W. L.

team. Shot put was captured undisputedly hy Leslie
while Bill Brown vaulted his way to victory for W. L.
West Side made a strong showing in the Central
Indiana Meet at Jeff, by taking four first places, giving
us third place with 35 points. Davis added to his
previous record one more win in the mile run. Brown
and Leslie once more won for W. L. in the pole vault
and shot put respectively. "I-Ianki' Ryder sprinted to
victory in the low hurdles also.
The Red Devil track men concluded the 1945 track
season by sending "Hank" Ryder to the State finals at
W. L. has become in two years of track competition
a recognized power in the state. We doff our caps to a
deserving squad of fighting W. L. cinder men.
