It should be a happy reminder of our work and play at old West Side. For the CLASS OF ' 49, this volume portrays the last chapter of high school life; for others, the story is not yet finished. We hope that as you look through this book now and in later life, you will recall the teachers and classmates who helped make your story an interesting and successful one, and that you will remember with pleasure the many activities which filled your high school days with color and content.

Not only have you taught us the subjects of typing, shorthand, and bookeeping, but because of your kindly and cheerful persistence we have come to know the meaning of achievement through perseverance. We have enjoyed knowing you as a friend, and we are honored to dedidcate this book to you.

I age 10 WILLIAM FLOYD Mr. William Floyd, su¬ perintendent of schools, is active behind the scenes, working with the School Board, the principal, and the faculty to keep the school system of West La¬ fayette functioning in high gear. We have known Mr. Floyd since Morton School days and feel quite proud when he stops to talk to us in the halls of Senior High. SCHOOL BOARD Although we rarely come to know the mem¬ bers of the School Board, we are aware that they are responsible for the many fine things that come our way in cur course of education. Our gratitu de goes to Mr. Burr Prentice, Mr. Henry Law, and Mr. Karl Kettelhut for their service to us and to the community. MR. CARL HAMMER Our principal, Mr. Carl Hammer, is a friend and adviser to everyone and es¬ pecially to us seniors. It is to him that we go to find our class standing, to check on our credits, to find ever ready sug¬ gestions for our activity plans. His " These are the morning announce¬ ments " sounds a cheerful note over the public address system every day. The request is made frequently by us to go to the office to see Mr. Hammer, for he listens attentively to our problems and solves them to our satisfaction. Mrs. Marcine Kintz, the Answer Woman of West Side High, is always on hand in the office to tell us everything from where someone is 6th hour to why our report cards haven ' t come. She relieves Mr. Hammer of much of the routine office work. ■■ The story of the faculty . . . we ' ll always remember . . . Mr. Howenstein ' s cheerful " Sound your A " . . .

Dick Ver Wiebe, who apparently got girl trouble at an early age, used to walk Peggy Sammons and Barbara Girton to school every day and whenever Barb and Peggy were late, Dick was too. First Grade was guite an advancement to everyone, and we all re member Miss Parnell and Miss Hubbard. Miss Hubbard ' s long pol¬ ished fingernails always caused guite a stir among her pupils. Everyone was a proud mem¬ ber of the rhythm band and every morning found us all assembled with our red sticks, tri¬ angles, and various other noise makers. Our addition to the band was a line of bottles hung Pagti 18 on a rack, each making a different sound when hit by a stick. Second Grade split everyone into different classes and a few lucky ones were able to skip! The sand box provides fond memories to every¬ one, although it seemed there was always more sand on the floor than in the box. The grocery store in Miss Pittman ' s third grade class with all those fascinating little cereal boxes was really exciting and everyone probably remembers the play ' ' Hansel and Gretel " put on by Miss Moss ' class. The stars were Betty Schroyer as Gretel and Bill Peck as Hansel. The fourth grade star of baseball was Bob Friend, who had been kept in running shape by our endless games of Blackman. Miss Boyd ' s class remembers how they used to get up and walk around the room any time they pleased. None of us can forget the fifth grade and De¬ cember 8, 1941. We were having art in Mrs. Frazer ' s room when President Roosevelt ' s dec¬ laration of war came over the public address system. From that moment on, anything labeled " made in Japan " was definitely shunned. A rollicking time was constantly had by all in Miss Kent ' s fifth grade class. All those outside trips and projects like growing peanuts! Kenny Montgomery, still a loyal West Sider, bet Miss Kent that no girl could ever kiss him. Miss Kent won the bet by performing the act herself! Those were the good old days. Miss Ullrich used to slap our little hands with a ruler when we were bad, and Ted LaBree seemed to always be the one to receive the pun¬ ishment. Jo Ann Kingsolver ' s blond hair still caused a disturbance, huh, boys? Sixth grade and we were all becoming more boy and girl conscious then ever. Everyone kept the name of their boy or girl friend a deep dark secret, and we were mortified if anyone found it out. The playground always bore chalk initials and hearts which were immediately rubbed out if discovered by the guilty persons. Junior High and everyone started to feel grownup and sophisticated, or at least we tried to look that way. Some of us were terribly shocked the day Mickey Statton and some of the others daringly wore their first lipstick to school. The clubs sprang up and each separate group gave many parties trying to see who could get the most boys. Hay rides and picnics were the most popular type of entertainment in the sev¬ enth and eighth grades. Mr. Tucker did not ap¬ prove of the time the boys all wore aprons to school to spite the wearing of jeans among the girls. He was sternly lecturing them in Science Class when in walked Barbara Byers in jeans with her hair completely done up in pigtails, picaninny style. Remember how all the girls had butches? It was really shocking to see their hair growing straight up in the air in front when their cropped bangs began growing out. Mary Carnahan always had the best looking " butch " according to the rest of the fans. Senior High and our Sophomore Class can¬ not be forgotten. Most of us looked up to the Seniors and secretly worshipped them. The halls were slightly less rowdy than they had been in Junior High, but the assignments were even worse. The girls joined all the clubs, and the boys participated in the school sports. The first formal dance was guite a step from those Freshman tea dances where boys stood on one side and the girls on the other. It was infuriating to see the boys dance with the teach¬ ers rather than risk asking a Freshman girl to dance. We never missed a basketball, football, or track meet, and cur fondest memory of all is the triumphant Jeff-West Side game with that score 13-0, our favor! Our senior year held the brightest memories of all. Things around school meant much more to us as we approached graduation. We appre¬ ciated the time our teachers spent with us each day, and every event of those last weeks in the classroom and out made us aware of how much dear old West Side meant to us.

Maryann Kettelhut Treasurer....Jim Beck Class Sponsors.Donald Fites, Donald Deer JUNIOR The class of ' 50 has been very busy this year. In addition to the two mixers they sponsored, they very successfully put on their play, " Our Hearts Were Young and Gay, " on December 13 and 14 under the faculty supervision of Miss Mary Bushong. The leading roles were por¬ trayed very well by Georgianne May and Doro¬ thy Ayres with Bob Bloss well cast for the lead¬ ing supporting role. Class rings were ordered in December and were proudly being worn in April. The chairman of the ring committee was Ruth Ann Parkinson. Plans for the Prom were completed in March with Forrest Horn serving as general chairman for this gala event. The Prom was held June 8 CLASS at the North Ballroom of the Union Building with Bob Kelley ' s band playing amid the scene of a " Nacht Mysteria " . The candidates for queen were chosen as follows: June Frager, Pat Butz, Janice Woods, and Rae Asher. The queen was presented with a crown of flowers and gifts were given to the court. The chairmen for the various Prom commit- ' tees were: Jim Keating—Band Barbara Gibbens—Theme and Decorations Ernest Oyler—Programs Dorothy Ayres—Invitations Beverly McBee—Queen and Arrangements Page 31 SOPHOMORES Left to light: First Row: George Bradley, Elizabeth Dun¬ ham, Marvin Miller, Neva Sabbagh, Jcse Ribares, Lois Cohen, Jack Fox, Joan Wilson, John Jackson, Barbara Cheshire, Don Astell, Pat Beck.

Elected by their class¬ mates, members of the Council discuss current problems of the school. The Council was instru¬ mental in obtaining the coke machine which gives us the " pause that refreshes, " and a more recent purchase has been the juke box lo¬ cated in a corner of the cafeteria. Dances, pep sessions, and movies have been sponsored by the Council, and with a faculty committee sev¬ eral convocations have been arranged. Through the efforts of the Student Council our school has become a more pleasant place to work and play. l J UC H .7.) SPEECH ARTS OFFICERS President..

The Girls ' Club, as always, has been a very active service organization. Starting the year with a Back-to-School dance, the upperclass members served the following wee k as big sis¬ ters for both freshman and sophomore girls. Sell¬ ing candy and popcorn at games was under the supervision of Ann Leahy and Sue McMuellen. The ceremonies for crowning the football and basketball queens were beautifully arranged by Janice Woods and Helen Geiger. The many so¬ cial events—father and daughter banquet, bean feed, Golddiggers ' Ball, and the June tea were carried out under the capable direction of Jo Anne Kingsolver and Dorothy Ayres. An Easter service and an excellent Vocational Conference were planned by Pat Butz and Georgianne May in cooperation with the Hi-Y. The officers with the sponsors. Miss Ruth Sinks and Miss Belle Coulter, worked hard to make this year one of the best, and we should all be proud of the Girls ' Club and the fine work it has accomplished this year.

The Hi-Y, under the capable leadership of Mr. Evans, has completed another successful year. The motto of the club is " to create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community the high standards of Christian character, " and the Hi-Y, by maintaining a varied spiritual, vo¬ cational, and recreational program, has endeav¬ ored to live up to its motto. The officers for the year were Bill Freel, president; Tom Thise, vice- president; Dick Ver Wiebe, secretary; Bruce Brown, treasurer; and Tom Comingore, sergeant at arms. The Hi-Y was, as usual, very prominent in school activities. They provided football and basketball programs, ushered at the games, sponsored several mixers, and also co-spon¬ sored the Good Friday service and the voca¬ tional conference. This spring the West Lafay¬ ette Hi-Y was host to the Hi-Y District Confer¬ ence. The annual spring picnic and the Mother- Son Banguet rounded out the year ' s activities of the West Lafayette Hi-Y Club. W. L. CLUB The purpose of the Lettermen ' s Club, more familiarly known as W. L. Club, is to bring to¬ gether all boys in school who have won athletic letters and to maintain high interest in sports of all kinds. All major lettermen are eligible for membership. The award this year for the most improved player on the A basketball sguad was presented to Fred Mozley and to Jim Davis on the B squad.

The membership now numbers slightly under 15 and all the boys are able to operate all sound and sight equipment in school. The boys who make up this organization have passed the requirements of high grades, an in¬ terest in electronics, and a sense of willingness and responsibility. The duties of the crew have grown as the school has purchased more and more equip¬ ment till now the group has exclusive charge of stage, sound, and lighting for plays; operating of movies and P.

OFFICERS Edna Wilkison.President Pat Bartlett.Vice-president Virginia Weir.

Bowling on Saturday mornings, vol¬ leyball, speed ball, and archery provide a strenuous schedule of sports which Miss Bernice Fites so admirably supervises.

SCARLET AND GRAY Although many seniors contributed to the work of the book, the planning and assembling were the work of an efficient technical staff. We, the Class of ' 49, appreciate the services of editors, Ann Leahy and George Cromer, and their very depend¬ able assistants, Marian Arvidson, Bill Gray, and Bob Straszheim. In publishing this edition of " The Scarlet and Gray " the staff has at¬ tempted to tell the story of your high school life in the year 1948-49. We know there are many things we have left out—just as the ' 49ers of another century left gold in the hills — but the nuggets we have tried to place before you. The Staff.

The biggest change was the double staffing of the main editorships which thus brought about more competition in the staff. Much of the success of the paper was due to the untiring efforts of Mr. Ellis Hopkins, the spon¬ sor of the Scarlette. He has advised the staff and guided it along the rocky path of publishing a newspaper. The student responsible for putting out the Scarlette was Lee Halliday, the editor-in-chief, who with the aid of his staff of editors and re¬ porters brought out improvements in the paper. Georgianne May and Dorothy Ayres, the asso¬ ciate editors, performed many and various tasks which had to be done to get the paper to press.

Ann Leahy and Louie Carr, the Feature editors, took charge of the middle section of the paper and all feature articles. Sports editors, Bruce Brown and Dick Ver Wiebe, wrote accurate accounts of all sport¬ ing events. Edith Oderkirk, the business manager, suc¬ cessfully kept the paper out of the red. The advertising manager, Pat Bartlett, had a diffi¬ cult job but completed it with excellent effi¬ ciency. The exchange editor, Joan Bradley, and the circulation manager, Elaine Fites, were valu¬ able juniors on the Scarlette. The two biggest editions of the year were the eight page Christmas issue, in which the annual Christmas contest was sponsored by the Scar¬ lette, and the ' ' Yellow Rage " issue which was published on April Fool ' s Day. The Scarlette this year is indebted to the La¬ fayette Printing Company for printing the paper and their valuable assistance in publishing it. I SCARLETTE STAFF FOR 1949 Editor-in-Chief.

We started out by beat¬ ing Washington of Indianapolis, 14-6. The W. L. passing attack shone in this game, with Friend throwing two touchdown passes, one to Gene Volk and one to Joe Van Pelt. Bill Bauman had his leg broken on the first play from scrimmage, and was out for the season. The next week the Scarlets traveled to Griffith and again won via the aerial route, 18-0. Gene Volk and Dave Morrison did the passing with Joe Van Pelt, Howie Sylvester, and Bob Kriebel on the receiving end. Valparaiso came to town next, and went home again on the short end of an 18-6 score. This game was all Friend ' s with the " Warrior” running for two long T. D. ' s, and passing to F. N. Lutz for the other touchdown. On October 8, West Side went down to Craw- fordsville, and racked up their 4th straight vic¬ tory by trouncing the Athenians, 19-0. The high¬ light of the game was a pair of long touchdown runs by Bobby Friend. The other touchdown was made by Morrison on a quarterback sneak. Biddle made his first P. A. T. of the season, and only the 3rd for W. L. Hoopeston, Ill., next invaded the Red Devil lair, and snapped West Side ' s victory streak by deefating us, 14-12. Friend threw to Joe Van Pelt for one touchdown, and ran an 85-yard punt return for the other W. L. score. Logansport was next on the schedule, and they dampened W. L. enthusiasm still more by winning, 20-13, in another close ball game. Once again it was Friend throwing a pass to F. N. for one touchdown, and scoring the second himself on a 25 yard run. The Scarlets got back on the victory trail by defeating Frankfort, 15-2. As far as scoring went, it was Lutz ' s ball game. The speedy little Red Devil back broke away three times for touchdowns, one of which was called back. The Lowell game was a sloppy affair, with rain pouring down and the field a sea of mud. W. L. won 13-0, with Dave Morrison scoring twice on quarterback sneaks from the one yard line. In one of the best football games of the year our team defeated Jefferson, 13-0. The game was highlighted by F. N. Lutz ' s seventy-four yard run for the first W. L. score. After this, both teams settled down to a driving, smashing line battle. Then in the fourth quarter Friend threw a pass to Bob Kriebel for the second score. Jeff then drove to the West Side four yard line, where a successful goal line stand was made by the Red Devils. This was a fitting close to a fine season ' s record of seven wins and two losses. Page 51 BASKETBALL Left to right: Front Row: Wally Strobel, Bob Sommer, Dave Morrison, FN Lutz, Ronnie Wilson.

Page 52 The West Side Red Devils completed one of their most successful seasons this year with a record of 18 wins and 6 losses, and a co-cham¬ pionship in the Hoosier Conference. The Scar¬ lets began the 1948-1949 season by trouncing their first five opponents. West Side gave im¬ pressive showings against Brook and Coving¬ ton, and then handed Rossville its first loss on its home court in five years by the score of 53 to 36. We continued on our torrid pace by drub¬ bing Flora and Michigantown in our first two home games. Our first defeat came at the hands of Gerstmeyer of Terre Haute; the score was 32 to 28. West Side next took part in the Monticello New Year ' s Day Tourney. The Red Devils were the favorites to win the tourney, but they were outpointed by Rochester in the afternoon session 48 to 39. Led by Jim Van Pelt and Dave Morri¬ son, West Side came back in the evening en¬ counter to blast Monticello 77 to 48.

Second Row: Jim VanPelt, Guard; Joe VanPelt, Guard; Wally Strobel, Guard; Bob Sommer, Guard; Ronnie Wilson, Guard. Following the holiday games, West Side beat Crawfordsville, Lebanon, and Sheridan. The Lebanon game was a particularly good tussle, with the Scarlets on the long end of a 47-40 score. Bob Kriebel was high point man, with 19 coun¬ ters. In the big game of the year Jeff edged out West Side 50-49. It was a thriller all the way, but we had a hard time hitting from the free throw line which hurt us greatly. After the Jeff game we racked up wins over Delphi, Rensse¬ laer, Rossville, Fowler, and Winamac. We were undefeated in conference play until we dropped our next game to Attica, 42-41. West Side wound up the regular season by walloping William¬ sport 59 to 18, and losing to Brazil 48-44. Bob Kriebel scored 24 and 25 points in the last two games. In the sectional. West Side easily defeated Wea and Klondike in their first two games. In the semi-final round, the Scarlets bumped up against a tough Battle Ground sguad. The game was tied up at 37 all, but W. L. forged ahead to win 47 to 41. In the final game West Side again came up against their arch-rivals, Jefferson. This game did not turn out to be the expected battle like the previous encounter. Jeff grabbed a quick lead as they hit a remarkable percentage of their shots. The final score was 50 to 35, a sad ending for one of the best teams in West Side history. For the record West Side scored 1,078 points, an average of almost 45 points per game. Our opponents scored 866 points, for a 35.5 average.

The Red Devils ' 1948 track season was a pretty successful one on the whole, with W. L. winning the Hoosier Conference Championship and sending three boys to the state meet at Indianapolis. A well-balanced Frankfort sguad trampled W. L. in the first meet of the season, 71-28. Mor¬ rison, Kantz, and Swindler took the only firsts for West Side. In the first home meet for West Side, Lebanon won out over West Side and Klondike, scoring 70 Vs points to W. L. ' s 58 5 6 points and Klondike ' s 5%. West Side next entered the Attica relay and scored 36 points to come off fourth in a field of 18 teams. Frankfort won the Relays, with Jeffer¬ son and Logansport next. W. L. got first place in the freshman sprint medley, second places in the distance medley, 880 yd. relay, shuttle hurdle relay, mile relay, and a third place in the 440 yd. relay. West Side scored 9 points in the Class E Kokomo Relays by taking second in the 1500 yard relay, a fourth place tie in the broad jump by Red Swindler, and two fourths in the 1000 yard race by Morrison and Kantz. In the sectional meet Dave Morrison won the mile. Red Swindler won the broad jump, and George Kantz took a second in the half-mile. As a result, these three boys were eligible to go to the state track meet. I J na 55 BASEBALL Left to right: Front Row: Bob Graham, Bob Bloss, Howie Sylvester, Dave Morrison, Fred Devany, Jack Poling. Left to right: Back Row: Ronald Moore, Jim VanPelt, Rex Biddle, Bud Stamm, Gene Volk, Bernard Dodds, Bob Friend. For the first time in the history of West Side athletics, major letters were given for baseball. The following nine boys received majors: Ron¬ ald Moore, Bob Friend, Tom Thise, Bob Gra¬ ham, Dave Morrison, Jim Van Pelt, Paul La Master, Jack Poling, and Rex Biddle. This year we will have everybody back except Ronald Moore, and Paul La Master. We will have Bob Graham behind the plate, with Bob Friend and Rex Biddle doing most of the pitching. In the infield there will be Jack Poling, first base; Ber¬ nard Dodds, second base; Tom Thise, short stop; and Jim Van Pelt, at third. In the outfield there will be Howard Sylvester, in left; Gene Volk, in center; and Bob Phillips in right. The greatest thrill of the 1948 baseball season occurred when Bob Friend came within an eye¬ lash of pitching a no-hitter against Crawfords- ville. In was not until two were out in the sev¬ enth inning, that they got their lone hit. Earl, the Crawfordsville catcher, was the villain of the day, for he was the man that got that one hit. W. L. won the game 9 to 0, and Friend had been responsible for all twenty-one outs, hav¬ ing struck out twenty, and throwing the other one out at first base.

Page 5fl The library is the largest room on the main floor, and we point to it with pride as the place wherein we study or " pretend " to study as it may be. Although we have not always used our library to the best advantage, we are fully aware of its fine facilities. We appreciate also the services of the student librar¬ ians, who are so skillfully trained by Mr. Evans. This year the most important addition to the shelves have been books for ninth graders. These bring the total number of books to about 2700. The subscription list includes thirty magazines and two newspapers. With all this interesting reading material and the excellent service available, it is no wonder that the library is such a popular place. Page 59 LIBRARY ENGLISH 1 West Side has no shortage of English teachers. Miss Sinks has been responsible for many W. L. Seniors being able to pass their college English courses by her thorough job of explaining gram¬ mar. Mrs. Leer, teaching her first year at Senior High since the freshmen were moved up from Junior High, teaches the freshman I and sophomore classes. Along with teaching Speech, Mrs. Muel¬ ler is also helping W. L. students to learn American literature. Mr. Evans and Mr. Hopkins have charge of teaching the sophomores and juniors along with teaching other subjects also. H i v-3 SPEECH Radio—deb ate—drama—oration—or just plain speeches. In the fall when snow is beginning to fly, speech students with trembling knees ascend the platform to face their classmates and teacher for the first time to give that first speech. During this semester we acquire experience and confidence in all types of public speaking. Speech 2 is devoted to the art of studying and producing drama, and many would-be actors have their fling in the world of the imagination. Logical thinking and accurate speech are requisites in a world which requires fearless speaking. The Citizens of Tomorrow Pro¬ gram given through the year over WBAA has given such oppor¬ tunity over radio to a group of interested students. Much credit can be given Mrs. Harriett Mueller for her help and direction in our speech activities. I I’ago 61 LATIN The climax of the year for young Romans is the Latin Banquet. This banquet is usually planned by the third and fourth year students but all participate and have a grand time eating ' ' Roman ' ' food and drinking " Wine " . Miss Coulter ' s classes enjoy the singing of Christmas Carols in Latin every year and all the wonderful tales of Mythology, Caesar, Aeneas, Virgil, and Cicero. Through our Latin knowledge we can derive English word meanings and all their mysteries. •• • fi LANGUAGE SPANISH When Mrs. Isaac is through with her Spanish students, they will be able not only to dream of the beautiful magic of old Spain and the Latin American countries but maybe even go there and enjoy the splendor. A language such as Spanish is a great help in many ways. It will help to create better relations with our friends South of us and certainly a better understanding of them. GERMAN If you are walking through the hall and hear a gutteral noise such as ' ' Ach! ' ' , it is only Mr. Eddy or one of his students reading their German lesson. This year we have made records of ourselves speaking this fine language with shocking results. Maybe by the end of another year or two, we could sound a little more like Germans. It is a lot of fun trying to translate German script and trying to read it with our handy dictionaries to aid us. It is certainly a very interesting course. SOCIAL SCIENCES mmwm da oftoou HISTORY Mr. Chester Eddy and Mr. David March have told us over and over how history repeats itself. They have shown us the develop¬ ment of civilization from the very beginning in Europe and Asia to our own present day ideas of government. We now know the importance of social studies because of the vital part we are to play in the development of a better democracy. Pape 6 4 CIVICS AND ECONOMICS Economics, the social science that deals with making a living, and civics, the study of our government and its functions involve business cycles, laws of supply and demand, the passing of bills in Congress, duties of cabinet officials, and slum clearance. Mrs. Gladys Isaac and Mr. David March have helped to make us realize the great problems which are threatening our peace and security. We have received first hand information of our commu¬ nity by visiting the court, the jail, and other institutions of local government. Above all we have learned the fine heritage of our democracy. Page 65 i TRIGONOMETRY Finally we studied trig and felt as if we were really seniors. Trig, with its cosines and log tables, may have seemed trying at first, but it certainly gives you a thrill when you have worked out a solution to a difficult problem. Mr. Donald Fites has shown us how to look forward and use our math in fields that many of us will follow as a life occupation. MATHEMATICS ALGEBRA Mrs. Hazel Cooper, Miss Bernice Fites, and Mr. Donald Fites have tried to make square roots and literal numbers mean some¬ thing to us. Math will be used in later life no matter whether it is in college, business or everyday life. We surely are grateful to West Side ' s efficient staff of math teachers. GEOMETRY Planes, cylinders, and field trips have meant a lot to us and will prove important in future years. When we go on to college math will help us in chemistry, physics, and engineering. Geom¬ etry was quite different after freshman algebra, but we soon caught on and enjoyed this " difficult " subject. ■ •n Page 67 PHYSICS As juniors we were introduced to the world of electricity and sound. With Miss Bushong we delved into the mystries of atomic energy, radar, radio, and television. A look into the future made us aware of tremendous things to come, and the probable part we shall play in their development. SCIENCE CHEMISTRY We long waited the time we could take chemistry. As under¬ classmen we glanced through the doors of the science room and wished we were doing the interesting things inside. The elusive odors also fascinated us. Finally as seniors we really found out what it was all about. We concentrated on the study of metals and their extraction; we prepared some cadmium yellow paint; we made blue-print exposure of film negative. We really took a long look into the field of science through the help of our capable teacher. Miss Mary Bushong. BIOLOGY Way back in our freshman year, biology opened a new world to our vision. We suddenly saw plants, flowers, bugs, and through the microscope many things not visible otherwise. Our collection of hard won butterflies and insects is a freshman remembrance we are not likely to forget. We appreciate Miss Anna Inskeep ' s help in giving us a keen insight into a field of study previously unknown to us. Miss Anna Inskeep We, the Class of 1949, wish to pay tribute to Miss Anna Inskeep on this, her year of retirement, for her wonderful teaching and her fine friendship. Page 69 Dear Sir:—Speed Tests—Debits and Credits Shorthand—Bookkeeping—Typing—that seems to sum up the Commercial activities at West Side. All three are well taught under Mr. Frank Replogle ' s friendly and helpful guidance. Those first few days of shorthand class were more like those of a draw- class, with everyone trying to make lines and curves according to Gregg. It was certainly a satisfaction when this " kindergarten class " learned to read and write—shorthand, that is. " Will this problem ever balance? " That was the familiar state¬ ment heard every day in Bookkeeping class. Once it did balance we felt more as if some day we might be able to keep the family budget or keep the simple books for a local doctor or some other such practical use of our knowledge. COMMERCE Learning to identify one key from another seemed to be the biggest goal in typing. Speed tests were the most fun. One was always trying to be a " whiz " and get his name on the board. The thought exercises were the most difficult since many of us very seldom took the time to think. The statement " Nothing important ever happens in our Com¬ mercial Department " is one that may be misleading. On the contrary, learning the fundamentals of business are very essential in this ever-growing world of ours. Not only does one learn he also has fun in these classes. Thanks to Mr. Replogle, this year ' s Commercial classes have been very important to many of us. Paee 71 In Mrs. Ruth Hamlin ' s and Miss Louise Gentry ' s classes we not only learn to choose foods wisely and to cook them well and deliciously, but training in serving is also a part of the foods course. Miss Gentry comes from Junior High to teach the freshmen the rudiments of how to dine well. The presence of boys in the classes serves as a challenge to the girls who have until recently considered this their department. HOME ECONOMICS Do you have a dating problem? Do you wish to be trained in the responsibilities of a baby sitter? Can you bake a cherry pie? If so, enroll in one or more of Mrs. Ruth Hamlin ' s classes. She has taught us to choose and to design suitable clothing, to care for children and to think of our home life as an important part of our living. - ■? The spacious sewing room of the home economics unit is pleasant to work in. Whether we sit around the tables and discuss personality problems or carefully cut material for a new spring outfit, the long south room with its vista of green fields creates an atmosphere of cheerful work. Pane 7.1 in ART At one time or another every organization has had a project for the art classes. It would be difficult to count the programs and posters for athletic activities, dances, and plays, and the decora¬ tions for convos and holidays so skillfully done by our artists. The amount of work that can be turned out in those two hours each afternoon is amazing. Under the expert guidance of Mrs. Gwen Hammer the versatile art students gain self reliance, creativeness, appreciation, and a background of art if they choose a career in this field. Page 74 Page Aside from the service to the school each individual has his own type of work to do. Forrest Horn, Susie Tetrault, Barb Bryan, Ann Jacques, Mary Ruth Hadley, and many others keep the poster paint supply at a minimum, while Alexis Gilliland and Jim Ash seem to like pastels. Those dress designs by Jackie LaPlante are in water color and some of our painters in oil are Pete Bartlett, Louis Carr, Jim Ritenour, and Bessie Schroyer. Other popular activities are clay modeling, soap carving, leather tooling, lino¬ leum block cutting, making silk screen prints, weaving, and making stencil designs. INDUSTRIAL ARTS Girls as well as boys elect to take the mechanical drawing course. Proper drawing technigue for future use is taught. The course includes machine drawings; which may be followed by elementary design and architectural drawing. Technicians from this class have a valuable place in the Annual staff in helping to prepare pictures for the engraver. Page 76 Pre-engineering training is the general objective in the shop program, and many boys find an outlet for creative ability. The well equipped shop includes heavy duty machine lathes, drill presses, power saws, arc welders, three Dodge automobile en¬ gines, and a Kinner airplane engine. Much practical instruction is received from the instructor Mr. Walter Wolever. Students with projects of their own, work them out during shop class. Safety is being stressed first and always. Page 77 PHYSICAL EDUCATION Look from the windows of the school, and if it is a pleasant day, you will see the boys ' physical education program in prog¬ ress on the field. Nine weeks in the fall and nine in the spring the boys romp in our out-of-door gym. Some day, looking from the same window, we shall see an imposing gymnasium, which will house the extensive physical education and athletic programs of the school. Mr. Gordon Straley keeps many boys happy and healthy through his fine supervision and constant efforts. Page 78 Miss Bernice Fites has had quite a program on her hands. Besides Math classes in school she also has the girls ' gym classes. The classes are held nine weeks in the fall and nine weeks in the spring. The girls play speedball, softball, soccer, and some archery. One of the most enjoyable of the phy sical education activities is the bowling class on Saturday mornings. In the picture Cora Lu Ulrich, Nancy Parker, Barbara Bryan, Pat Bartlett, and Edna Wilkison are waiting their turn in the Purdue Bowling Alley. Since the out-of-door program must await the decision of the weatherman, girls as well as boys will be glad for that new gymnasium when it becomes a reality. Page 79 BAND Everyone in Mrs. Mueller ' s and Miss Sinks ' study halls has heard the foot of ' ' Howie ' ' beat¬ ing time to the music of the band. Whether these more studious people like it or not, a lot of good music has been turned out of that band. This is very evident from the regularity that our band has come home from contests with firsts. The band, under the direction of Mr. Marshall Howenstein, has pepped up all our spirits at football and basketball games. They have made a very pretty picture alone and with other bands marching up and down the field. MAJORETTES Nancy Parker, Edith Kennedy, Sara Jane Cox, and Pat Morrison have done much to add to the appearance of our band. They have worked hard on new routines so that our band might out-shine any other band. Not only have they added a bright note, but they have also made up some very clever routines to amuse the on-lookers. Nancy Parker and Pat Morrison went to a contest this year. I’uge 80 9 f if jp -Jk jmjjgBgB « J§§Pj Ksj W ! i IB ORCHESTRA First division rating for the orchestra is a common occurrence, as the plaques on the music room walls testify. Mr. Marshall Howen- stein confidently takes his band and orchestra to district and state contests. The loading of musicians and instruments in busses is no small job, but the fine performances bring much glory to our school and a great satisfaction to all concerned. The final appearance of the or¬ chestra for the year is always at Commence¬ ment when it accompanies the seniors as the class marches into Fowler Hall. STRING ENSEMBLE West Side is very proud of its tal¬ ented string ensemble. During the year it has played for out-of-town banquets, at Lincoln Lodge meetings, and at Jackson Township Com¬ mencement under the fine direction of Mr. Marshall Howenstein. Since all are underclassmen, we hope to hear more from them next year. In the picture from left to right are Mason, Yearion, Pat Woods, Norman Hocking, Mike Patterson, Jo Anne Lakin, and Madge Bachman. ' - ' ,11 CHORAL school. The members also belong to the Mixed Chorus and are privileged to go to Indianapolis to sing with the state chorus, and this year they took part in the Spring Choral Festival at Greencastle. MOONBEAMS QUARTETTE The school will certainly miss the Moon¬ beams Quartette next year. Unique in its kind, the quartette has given many enjoyable pro¬ grams, and the boys ' well trained voices and poised appearance have won them acclaim throughout the community. Bob Friend, Jim VanPelt, Lowell Jackson, Bill Freel, we salute your well earned success. I’ngc 81 BOYS ' GLEE CLUB First Row: B. Hill, L. Jackson, L. Short, M. Yearian, B. Baker, D. Rothenberger, A.

Too much credit cannot be given Mrs. Mar¬ shall Howenstein for her fine cooperation with all school programs as well as for the excel¬ lence of her direction. i iiy The familiar carols of Christmas sung through the halls and at the Yuletide con¬ vocation by the Girls ' Glee Club has be¬ come a tradition. Carefully coached by Mrs. Marshall Howenstein, the girls gave their best at every appearance. Especially effective were they in their maroon col¬ ored robes at the impressive Easter serv¬ ice. In white blouses and black skirts they pleased a large audience at their spring . concert. • Page 8.1 Page 84 DOINGS OF THE DEVIL SEPTEMBER 11- Tonight I trudged up the hill to the Back-to-School Dance which the Girls ' Club sponsored. It was certainly nice to see all my friends again after vacation. 13—It seemed to me those fifteen minute periods were hours long. I think school is going to be fun this year now that I am a senior. 17--Washington of Indianapolis traveled all the way to West Side only to be beaten by the Devil by a score of 14-6. Pretty good for our first football game! It was too bad Bauman was injured but I hope he will soon be with us again. Hardin was also unable to play because he was stricken with polio. I hope it isn ' t too serious. After the game ihe Hi-Y sponsored a mixer in the cafeteria. It was very well attended by the Devils. 23— After school today I went to the organization meeting of the Senior Class in the cafeteria. The Juniors held their meeting in the library. 24— I drove all the way to Griffith and witnessed the Devil victory there by a score of 18 to 0. The Devil was well represented despite the distance. 29— After school I attended the Scarlet and Gray meet¬ ing at which time it was decided to publish the biggest and best annual ever. Tonight I attended the Hi-Y meeting. 30— This evening the Girls ' Club chili supper was served in the cafeteria. The freshman and sopho¬ more girls provided the entertainment for the rest of us. They show promising talent in acting and singing. OCTOBER 1—The Devil was host to Valparaiso tonight for an¬ other football encounter which came out victori¬ ous, 18 to 6. The annual crowning of Football Queen was held between games at which time Bonnie Burns was crowned queen by Mar y Ellen Binney, Girls ' Club President. Those girls in her court were Rae Asher, Barbara Gibbens, Barbara Bryan, Meredith Hunt, and Helen Lecklitner. Pages, who carried the crown and gifts, were Anne Moore and Shirley Felknor. I think Ted LaBree made a very charming escort. Everyone was congratulating the queen at the mixer spon¬ sored by the T.E.C. crew after the game. 4- Head for the Press Room. All of us seniors sure were dolled up today to get our pictures taken. 5- We seniors had a meeting this afternoon and elected our officers. I think Bill Bauman will make a very efficient President, don ' t you? 8—Crawfordsville welcomed West Side tonight to play football, and of course the Devil won by a large margin, 19 to 0, I believe. 15—The first defeat for the Devil came tonight when the Hoopeston boys beat us 14 to 12. I guess we can ' t be the win ners every game. 19—After school today the Hi-Y had a meeting with their new members. How do you like initiation boys? Pa%e £5 20— I went to Logansport tonight, no, not to Longcliff, but to the football field to tangle with the " Logan¬ berries " . We surely didn ' t tangle enough for they beat us 20 to 13. 21- 22 No school! The teachers are attending a con¬ vention in Indianapolis. The slumber parties go¬ ing on this week-end were loads of fun. 26— I attended the Ahea initiation for new members and the Hallowe ' en Party at Betty Townsend ' s cottage on Lake Freeman. We all had loads of fun and the eats were wonderful. 27— I went to the Girls ' Club meeting after school. I think more girls have attended the meeting because important business was discussed. 28— We seniors had a meeting after school and the first thing heard when I arrived there was the fact that dues were $3.00. Wasn ' t that enough to say at one meeting? 29— Again the Devil won a football game by tromping Frankfort 15 to 2. The Scarlette sponsored a mixer after the game and once again the cafeteria was packed. NOVEMBER 5—Lowell visited the Devil tonight and the visitors were defeated 13 to 0. I think the Devil is pretty red hot! 8—The Speech Arts members gave a little show on Parent Night. I think our parents were really proud of us. 10— My but my throat was sore after yelling so much at the pep session we had tonight. Everyone is almost sure we wil l beat Jeff tomorrow afternoon. I think we are bubbling over with enthusiasm. 11— I knew the Devil would beat those Bronchos and they did by a neat score of 13 to 0. After the game we all marched behind the band all the way to the village and back to school. We were still celebrating tonight by attending the slumber party at Sturm ' s. I think almost everyone was there. 12— I didn ' t mind coming to school this morning know¬ ing we wouldn ' t have any hard studying to do. This afternoon the Student Council planned enter¬ tainment in the cafeteria. Tonight the Devil and his date attended the Sox Dance sponsored by the Ahea Club. Everyone looked neat in bobby sox. 15— The Devil attended a supper tonight. The Football Mothers gave a feed for their sons who worked so hard during our wonderful football season. The cafeteria was packed and so were many stomachs. 16— Everyone is entertaining the Devil. Tonight the Optimist Club gave a banquet for the Bronchos and Devils at the Union Building. More food! 17— I came up to the Ahea Club initiation this evening and brought my mother for a pot-luck supper. The food was delicious. 19—I took the buggy to Brook tonight to see the Devil chalk up a 48 to 16 victory for our first basketball game of the season. 23— We went to Covington tonight and brought home the bacon by frying a score of 53 to 35. The Devil is doing pretty good for himself don ' t you think? 24— I had the opportunity to show my talent this afternoon at the Student Council Musical Con¬ vocation. The Moonbeams really made a big hit and a lot of hidden talent was revealed. 25— Happy Thanksgiving. 13— 14—Junior Play was presented at Morton. " Our Hearts Were Young and Gay. " DECEMBER 1— Rossville was defeated on their home floor for the first time since February of 1943 by the Devil tonight. That 53 to 36 score really looked neat. 2— Tonight Jack Erwin told about his travels in Eu¬ rope, at Hi-Y meeting. Mr. Hoddopp presented a magic exhibition. The meeting was very interest¬ ing. 16— I really enjoyed the Christmas meeting of the Girls ' Club this afternoon. Marian Arvidson gave some very humorous readings. The Devils lost their game with Gerstmeyer of Terre Haute tonight. 17— The Cafeteria was the scene of the Christmas Convo this morning. The chorus sang and Joyce Bedell and Bob Kriebel gave readings. I think everyone is in the Christmas spirit this year. To¬ night I attended the annual Hi-Y Christmas Dance. It was different in the way that pictures were taken of the various couples and a skit was put on by new members. This brought school to a close until January 2. I wish all the Devils a very Merry Christmas. 31—The annual New Year ' s Eve Dance was held to¬ night at Allen ' s Ballroom. The various girls ' clubs in school sponsor this dance. Tom Thise was crowned " king " of the dance. For the first time a band held the honors with the Devil ' s own Rae Asher featured as vocalist. JANUARY 3— School again! My but I was tired today. I guess I still haven ' t recuperated from the slumber par¬ ties New Year ' s Eve. 4— Crawfordsville was where the Devil was sched¬ uled to have a game tonight, and of course the Devil came out on top 43 to 24. 7—Lebanon paid the Devil a visit tonight at the Field house and 47 to 40 was the neat score the Devils chalked up against their foe. For the first time a Basketball Queen was crowned and Ruth Ann Parkinson held the honors. The girls in her court were Pat Beck, Barbara Gibbens, Helen Lecklit- ner, and Janice Woods. All were presented with corsages. 10—I attended the Speech Arts meeting this afternoon and understand they are already thinking about the play.

The Devil put up a hard fight but lost by one point in what was a thrilling basket¬ ball game. 49 to 50 was the final score. 19— The Devil ' s Ahea and Hi-Y clubs held a joint meeting tonight in the cafeteria. I thought the panel discussion on dating problems was most beneficial. 21—The Devils downed Delphi 30 to 21 tonight. A gay mixer concluded a very exciting evening. 25— Tonight the Devils were guests of Rensselaer and again took the honors with a score of 45 to 37. 26— I went in to the Girls ' Club meeting after school in the Speech Room. 28—Again the Devils were victorious over Rossville with a score of 51 to 37 and after the game a mixer was held and enjoyed by all the Devils who attended. Page 87 FEBRUARY The Devil began a new semester this morning and he surely felt relieved after hearing he had passed all the tests. Tonight the Devil motored to Fowler to beat the Bulldogs by a score of 51 to 41. Nice going. Winamac was the Devil ' s guest tonight at the Fieldhouse and our Devils were really happy after chalking up another victory. The mixer after the game was enjoyed by all who attended. Attica came to our Devil ' s Den tonight and took home the honors. It was a close game literally crammed with excitement. 11—Williamsport left tonight feeling a little sad after the Devil racking of 59 to 18. To add to the eve¬ ning ' s enjoyment a mixer was held in the cafe¬ teria and lo and behold we have a new jukebox!! 14—Who ' s your Valentine? I guess everyone found out at the Speech Arts meeting after school. 16—The Devil ' s homemakers visited McCord ' s Con¬ fectionery today after school to learn to make candy. 18—The Devils played their last game tonight before the sectionals to be defeated at Brazil by a very small margin. I hope they are going better for the sectionals. ( 22— The Ahea Devils were busy making plans for the Shamrock Ball today at the business meeting. I think the dance will be most delightful this year. 23- 26—The Devil was pretty busy attending the sec¬ tionals and was disappointed when our Jefferson rivals outplayed us Devils but it was really a fine tournament and the Devils should be mighty proud of themselves. 28—The Devil Girls ' Fathers were entertained at a banquet tonight and the freshmen were initiated. The program was enjoyed by our fathers im¬ mensely. MARCH 11—A Mixer was in the air tonight with the Dance Band providing the noise. That Devil band de¬ serves orchids for their teamwork and originality. 14—The Speech Arts meeting was held this afternoon, and I thoroughly enjoyed the skits from the play. 16-17— " The Great American Family ' ' was presented tonight to the Devil and his friends at the Morton Auditorium. Some future talent for the Devil was revealed and the entire play reached the Devil ' s high standards. 18—Formals and flowers were in order tonight at the Devil ' s Shamrock Ball.
