Carmel Volume 12. CARMEL, INDIANA, MAY 30, 1919 Number 8. -vt Hamilton County The Junior Recep- Preliminary Orator- The History of Car- Oratorical at Nob- Track and Field tion ioal mel Schools lesville Meet Carmel was represented at the twelfth annual track and field meet which was held on the horse show grounds in Noblesville, Friday, afternoon, April 25. Although Carmel made only four points, it showed an abundance of undeveloped talent. We believe that with the proper training, the home boys will make an excellent showing next year. Lester Hinshaw made all of Carmel's points, finishing second in the 100-yard dash, and third in the 220 yard dash. The cold weather resulted in all of the events being slow. There were no county records broken largely for this season. A cold, chilly wind swept across the field all afternoon and prevented all of the boys from displaying their real ability. Hull, of Noblesville, was the bright and shining star of the meet and was awarded the gold medal for scoring the largest number of points for his team, Carey, also of Noblesville was awarded the silver medal for scoring the second largest number of points while Henry, of Boxley, was awarded the bronze medal for scoring the third largest number of points. On account of the condition of the athletic field at .Carmel, the home boys d:d not obtah sufficient practice. Next year, if the track is improved and the needed articles are obtained for proper training, we see no reason why Carmel should not place in many of the events. Frank Hawkins, '20. HORSESHOES Horseshoe playing- received great attention at the school this spring. On earlier than usual and was practiced more than ever before. -Many excellent players were developed and there account of the fine weather it started were so many arguments about which •team was the best, that Mr. Hinshaw decided to have a tournament to decide the great question. Each team who entered was to pay two cents. Candy or oranges were to be bought with the money for the winners of the tournament. A card was placed on the bulletin board and twelve teams entered. The names were drawn and the stakes were inclosed southwest of the school house No 'teams outside of the school entered but they would have been welcomed by some as most of the teams thought they were undoubtedly the best in the county. The games were started and were played only at noon and recesses. At the end of two days the finals were played between Raymond Myers and Eugene Kinzer against Mr. Doan and Walter Rees. Quite an argument was started when Mr. Doan thought he caught Mr. Cotton, the referee, giving the other team the best end of the game, "Doan" and "Reese" had elimi- ated Cotton in their game, but it was found that the refereeing was all right. "Myers" and Kinzer" won the tournament and great sport with the other teams about how easy the tournament had been for them. This failed to settle the trouble as a couple of the men teachers continued to have great arguments about the fairness of the first tournament so another one was planned. Twenty teams entered this time and the excitement was greater than ever. The teams practiced daily but the finals came off this time with but the finals Kenton Smith pitted against Henry Miller and Lowell Wade. "Cotton" and "Smith" won the oranges. It was their time to jolt the other players and they certainly cai-ried it on to perfection as they had gotten the larger of the two tournaments. But the question is given up which team is the best and any nice evening you may see the pupils and now and then the teachers themselves waging hot games on the vacant lot west of the Interurban station. Kenton Smith, '22. The Senior class of '19 was delightfully entei-tained at a banquet, Friday evening, May 2, given by the Juniors, at the Library Hall. The color scheme was carried cut in pink and green, the Seniors' class colors. The tables were beautifully decorated with flowers and cindles. After dinner was served, toasts were given by Miss Agnes Graves of the Junior class, and the response by Raymond Myers, of the Senior class. A vei'y interesting "class will" was read and Mr. Hinshaw and Miss Zimmerman delighted all with their humorous speeches to each class. The remainder of the evening was spent in playing games and other amusements.

Two Indian families lived in small log houses, near Mahlon Day's present residence while "Johnny Cake" lived in the southeast. This was, moreover, a typical Quaker settlement. About 1833, the Friend's log "meeting house," known as Richland was built in the southwest corner of the cemetery, a crude building where a sheet was hung up for the door until one could be made from lumber. In 1835 an addition of the same size was built to this house. In the center of the < room were boxes of clay and mortar, in which they burned charcoal for fire; later plain big stoves were used, making part of the room disagreeably warm, while the other was cold. The plate of the stove often fell down and A • ■ & .-.'•"' U si The oratorical contest held at Noblesville, Friday night, April 25, resulted in victory for Noblesville, represented by Neal Davis. Second place was awarded to Pearle Cole, of Atlanta, and third place to Ralph Boyd, of Westfield. The first' prize was a gold medal, the second prize a silver medal, and the third prize a bronze medal. Although our representative did not win any medal, we are proud of her for the way she delivered her oration. Each school also furnished a musical number.

The faculty of the Carmel school have proven themselves, very capable and efficient. The school has completed the work for the year, the teachers giving careful thought and study to assignments and private work has been given the very best of attention, this making it possible to complete our work in such a limited time. The teachers have worked together in every way, for the betterment of the school and of each individual. Socially they have proven themselves very congenial, and many good times have been had this year. We feel that much good has been accomplished this year and hope to see all teachers and faithful Levi back the coming year. H. Margaret Follett, '21. Leland Venable says that dogs should not be killed because girls need them for protection. Do yo l suppose he could have overlooked the safety which a girl feels, when she has one of the opposite sex to cling to. THE BACCALAUREATE SERVICES The Baccalaureate services were held at the M. E. church Sunday evening, May 4. Rev. A. J. Brown, pastor of the Gray church, delivered a splendid address entitled, "The Making of the Future American." Excellent music was furnished by the high school. MANUAL TRAINING The first of the year was spent in carpentering and making a few simple articles to acquaint us with the use of various tools and how to put different finishes on a piece of work. When we had all become more or less familiar with the use of tools (and probably we were less familiar than we should have been), we took up the work in the regular text book. In this book we had some very interesting discussions on topics of community interest. We studied the Various kinds of trees, the localities where they grow, their respective value for lumber and the kind of lumber that should be used for certain things. We next took up the study of various common joints and made several samples to be left to show future classes a sample of our work. The rest of the year was spent in using up odds and ends that had been collecting for several years. Some very good pieces of work have been turned out and there is a marked improvement in the ability of all of us in handling tools. It is the intention of Mr. Hinshaw to leave the shop in a great deal better condition than we found it. We hope to have things fixed so the class next year can start out with tools in good condition and no scraps to work up. Considering the difficulties we have had to overcome the year has been a successful one through the efforts of our teacher, Mr. Hinshaw. W. Rees, '20. It took Keats several years to write an Ode to St. Agnes and win fame, but any lad can write a note to Agnes in a few minutes and win her. school was dismissed until it was set up again. One day at noon, the teacher sent for Isaac Rich, a strict overseer who shot holes through the plate with his rifle in order that rods could be used for holding it in its proper position. For a short time the school was held in this first church then it was moved across the road to Clay township near the old toll-gate. About a mile and one-half southeast, "Valley" school- house was built. This seemed to be one of the most successful schools and pupils came from many miles around. Another was three miles east, called the Dawson, while a third was located at Poplar Ridge. The patrons one of these country schools wished an improvement, a long window and some,, kind of a plank for writing lessons. They sawed out one log, pasted newspapers in its place, then covered these with soap grease for the purpose of letting in a little more light. A school was built north of town near the old site, known as Carmel Academy. In the beginning the, schools were maintained solely by subscription, each family giving what they could for educational work. The different families took turns in boarding the teacher and building the fires in the schoolrooms. This was generally done a week at a time thus giving the teacher a wonderful chance to become acquainted with his patrons. As the Quakers predominated, the educational work was almost entirely under their provision. The students were compelled to attend the mid-week meeting; lost time, in earlier years, being made up on the following Saturday. Three months was the length of the school term. The qualifications of the teacher depended upon two things almost com- (Continued on page five) On Literary Programs. Carmel high school has always shown a great amount of interest in social life, formally carrying out the plan of having two or three high school and numerous class parties during the year. But this has been an unusual school year, and on account of strict orders we were asked to discontinue all unnecessary gatherings. To be patriotic and also for our own good we gladly submitted to this request. However it disappointed us a great deal because at this time we were looking forward to a high school party and if I am not mistaken the Juniors had arrangements made for a class party. Of course these things made us feel "blue", and we wondered what school life would be like without anything to enliven, us. Then all of a sudden one of our wise and interested instructors thought of a plan of substituting entertainments. These were given by members of the high school about every two weeks. This gave us something to look forward to and also- proved that Carmel high school possesses good talent along most lines. Among the programs that have been given, there have been many surprises and good laughs. Floyd Randall,. Armon Dawson, Leonard Williamson and Elmer Day gave a very interesting short play entitled "The Red School House." This proved that the Sophomores should be proud of their boys. There have been numerous duets, solos and readings, all of which have been well given and appreciated. The school was greatly surprised on one occasion, when it was announced that the next number on the program would be a piano solo by Paul Myers. Very few knew Paul played, but he soon proved his ability and when we tried to encore him, he refused, because he had nothing else with him he could play. We were afterwards informed that he was too bashful as he seems to prefer discouragement to praise. Another amusing play entitled, "Burglars" was given by Margaret Follett, Ruth Sheets, Curtis Collins and Doyal Ramsey. This gave more proof that the Sophomores should be proud of not only their boys but also their girls. On another occasion we were great- (Continaed on Page 2).
