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. O O 0 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. Prentice, Treasurer. Page 6 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. 11 Page 7 Zwlitfb 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. :ws l'ug1v H 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. Page 9 lVlathematieal precision is necessary to con- vert war efhciency to the needs of PEACE in fffl' 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. E Page 10 C 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 of tomorrow. Page 11 aaL ,f 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. AM Page 12 gp fbi? t grow, 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. 4? Page 13 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. Page U ,lx -1 N , Soy 4 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 lessons. 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- time. Page 15 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- W if 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. Page I 6 Zlnmn, mnomica, A modern girl in a post war world! The Home 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. 'NIP hs :F Page 1 7 539114, 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- puselcsu. 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. Page 18 ig it laxffs f 519114. 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. C. A.

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.

But all those who have mastered tbose lines and symbols have accomplished a useful and time-saving method to read and write. Page 21 9 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.

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. 6 Page 2 flmm' 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 military service. 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 well-spent.

Page 36 ' Jfvnm, smut 1 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 brotherhood. This school year the following students were elected to the National Honor Society, on the basis of ill Scholarship, l2l Leadership, f3J Service, MJ Character: Barbara Baugh Tom Gildersleeve Robert Boonstra Dow Caldwell William Creson Dorothy Oyler Sally Papenguth Norman Todd Alice Curtis Jerry Sylvester Carolyn Cutshall V X .lulia Trost Ann Wa1'ren 4559 u i JUNIORS Top Row fleft to righti: C.

Page 41 x Pays' JJ' Mah. nl. 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, Usher. 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. P 43 Pane H Yen, team! G.,-YA ....

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.

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 Americans. Page 51 jnnfbal 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 of 25-0. 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 , , Page 52 few Jvnfbal 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.

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. xl T33 04' 'e-...W Page SS a8a.4hztlwdL 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. CARL ISENBARCEB acted as game captain most of the season and played a good all around game at guard. Ice. a senior, scoring a considerable number of points. almost always completely bottled up whomever he was guarding. 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 valuable alternate. JOHN RALSTON, a senior transfer from Montmorenci. 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. Page 56 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. Page 5 7 jmck 7945 R. Moore, Cildcrsleeve, Davis, Heimlich, Collings, Swindler, Allen, MacDonald. J. Moore, Hall, R. Ryder, H. Ryder. 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 Indianapolis. 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.
