BUILDINGS ... IN THIS, THE 1 956 EDITION OF OUR YEARBOOK,
RECORD THE UNFORGETTABLE EVENTS OF A HAPPY SCHOOL

the Arsenal Cannon
ARSENAL TECHNICAL HIGH SCHOOL
INDIANAPOLIS, U. S. A.
Our four flags symbolize our way of living,
our efforts for world unity. Our school
flag represents our preparation for life in
the community. Our R.O.T.C. flag is indica-
tive of the home guard, training for peace
instead of war. Our state flag points
out the individuality of each state, an
individuality which we students are encour-
aged to develop for ourselves. Our nation's
flag reminds us of our strong bonds with
the rest of our country, and our allegi-
ance to freedom. At Tech, we not only
study the American way of life— we live it!

FRIENDS IN INFORMAL GROUPS
We are free — free to meet with our friends,
free to gather in cheering crowds at our
games, free to meet in informal
groups, and free to gather
for formal assemblies. Throughout
the school year we enjoy entertaining
programs, whether they be all-
pupil affairs, a symphony orchestra concert,
or an address by a speaker of note.
All are designed to educate and to inform
us. We are proud that we are
trusted to conduct ourselves properly
without regimentation. Yes, we vririe Ui

DED BY OUR FREEDOMS OF EXPRESSION
JEROME Perkins and David Baker manage the flatbed press,
proud of their work for they know the "power of the press."
Our life is a world of words — printed and
spoken. Through radios, televisions, news-
papers, and magazines, all free of govern-
ment censorship, we direct our thinking,
interpret current events, and transmit our
opinions on government and world affairs,
that we, a part of young America, will fit
into the established pattern of our country.
BETTY Converse reads the Arsenal Cannon

IN THE U. S. we enjoy as our heritage, freedom of religion.
THE RIGHT TO WORSHIP GOD IN
ONE'S OWN WAY
Our nation is based on the fundamental
belief in God. In the beauty of our campus
and our Nature Preserve, we are reminded
of His works. We are inspired to practice
brotherhood all year, not just for one
week. In our sports, our extra-curricular

WE LEARN THE INTRICATE PROCESSES OF GOVERNMENT AND
LITTERBUGS ore not welcome on the campus at any time,
most certainly not during Service Club Clean-Up-Week.
We like to be well informed about the
world around us and to know how its affairs
influence our daily lives. We are being
trained, as good citizens, to be
intelligent voters, to recognize the
rights of others, and to have a respect
for property. We are proud that
through our campus clean-up campaigns
Tech has played a part in bringing
the Cleanest City Award to Indianapolis.
TAKE PRIDE IN OUR CIVIC DUTIES
In our Social Studies classes we learn
the processes of self-government so that
we may step into the role of "public
citizen" with confidence and knowledge.
"Let's make brotherhood a year-round practice," says Paul
Downer, one of the speakers in the enlightening program pre-

IN HIS German class Mr. Veltrup points to his home, Min-
den, as Keith Tressler shows a picture of Bremen where Mrs.
Underwood, Tech's exchange teacher, met Mr. Veltrup.
When we welcome an exchange teacher from
another country, when we have the oppor-
tunity to visit industries and see free
enterprise in practice, when we meet
in the cafeteria for our breakfast, or
even as we walk around our campus during
the four lunch periods, we know that
we are experiencing one of the finest
freedoms our country has to offer. A buzz
of activity is always prevalent around
the school for day and night, summer and
winter, classes are in session; and after
school teen-agers are busy taking part
in various extra-curricular activities.
A GOVERNMENT class boards the bus to go to the State House where it will visit the General Assembly.

We choose our four-year programs from a
varied and extensive curriculum, for our
school offers vocational and technical as
well as academic subjects. Our Employment
Office places many of our youthful sales-
men, typists, carpenters, printers in
industry and in business. We even earn
pocket money at school by helping in the
lunchroom or assisting teachers. Since we
will be paid according to our abilities,
we are encouraged to work for a high
standard of accomplishment.

WE LEARN THAT OUR CULTURE STEMS FROM MANY
RALPH Morris and Helen Henderson read the constitu-
tion to prove a point in American Government class.
We call America the melting pot of the world
for we have welcomed to our shores peoples
from all nations and have taught them the
principles of Americanism. In turn, these
freedom-loving peoples have brought with them
not only their ideas and ideals, but also
the culture and background of the old world.
Today, we study this old-world culture and
adapt it to our modern use. Although our
government was revolutionary in giving its
people control, we still study the laws of
ancient civilizations; we study Latin as the
basis of our modern English language; and
in our mathematics we learn that it origi-
nated in Egypt in the time of the Pharaohs.
Through the process of elimination, we
have taken the best of the culture
of the world and have made it our own.

Awards for 1954-55, which they, together with Miss
Alice Brown, prepared and which received one of
the Top Ten Principal School Awards; the third
time Tech has received a Principal School Award.
OUR TALENTS WHILE REACHING
We are encouraged to develop our talents, to strive toward higher goals.
Many of us win awards each year in art, languages, mathematics, music, and
sports, but just to win is not a fetish with us. Each is given the opportu-
nity to achieve our goals, but we do not have to train or to develop our
talents just to glorify our school. If we succeed, we are given recognition
in assemblies, on Honor Day, and at Commencement. If we fail, our
teachers applaud us for initiative, for our courage to try. At the end of
our four years at Arsenal Tech, if we have done our best, we will
have learned to accept victory with modesty and defeat with a smile.
WE MUST BE developed
physically as well as men-
tally so, as a requirement
we must take two se-
mesters each of Physical
Education and Physical
Fitness, with Posture as
a substitute for either.
WE RECEIVE GUIDANCE IN COURSE SELECTION AND HEALTH
AS PART of the guidance program of our school Miss Jennie Moton, sponsor of
Room 156, explains why the school insists that each pupil plan his four-year program.
IN ANOTHER course for teen-agers, Child Care, taught
by Mrs. Jeanne Bose, girls enjoy each other's scrapbooks.

COMPREHENSIVE IN ITS VARIETY OF COURSES IS TECH
In this our nationally known comprehensive
high school we are offered I 12 semester
courses in the academic field and 287 in
vocational and technical fields. Because
of this wide variety of offerings, we are
given an opportunity to work toward our
personal goal, whether it is to be prepared

CHILDREN LOOK FORWARD
TO SEEING TOYLAND SCENE
Indianapolis children have grown to expect a toyland
scene in the east basin of Monument Circle for the
holidays. Last Christmas for the third time the
Division of Program Production, directed by Mr. C. S.
Stewart, built such a scene. And it was the tenth
time that the Stagecraft class had arranged a Circle
display, the first seven years having made the
Nativity scene for the west basin. For this year's
project Jack Fischer was in charge of building
the Victorian house, and Forrest McGinnis made
the papier mache figures of the children in the house.
WHILE Billy Leavell works on the model for the house, Jack Stiere-
walt puts the finishing touches on the scale model of the display.
LARRY Aiken assembles an aluminum deer which has pivoted joints

ON A BITTER cold day a few weeks before Christmas the class moves
the setting to the east basin of the Monument where they assemble it.
AT LAST the tremendous project is completed ready to be enjoyed by
old and young as they pause to admire the mechanical toyland scene.
IT IS ART FOR ART'S SAKE
PLUS ART FOR A VOCATION
Whenever awards for art contests are announced
names of Tech teachers and students are sure
to be included. Our art faculty wins prizes at
the State Fair Art Exhibit, the Hoosier Art
Salon, and Indiana Artists' exhibit. This spring
art pupils won 63 places in the Scholastic Art
Awards for paintings, ceramics, jewelry, and
sculptures; fifteen art students won sixteen
prizes and places in the Ford Motor Company
Industrial Art Awards, while Drafting

With 140 different courses in five Shop departments
Tech is noted for offering the finest vocational
curriculum in the city. No boy who has the desire
to enter a trade can escape being trained for
the job if he maps his course with care, if he
chooses the classes that will give him the best
opportunity to develop, and if he keeps
in mind that a vocational certificate will
open the door for him to his chosen field of work.

ANNUAL "SKETCHBOOK" AND "SCRATCHPAD" REVUES
Two student talent revues are the "Sketchbook,"
now with 24 performances to its credit, and
the "Scratchpad," a Junior High production,
with two performances to its credit. Last
year the theme of the "Sketchbook" was
"Show Boat," with three of the original acts
shown here. This year the theme was
"Green and Bear It." It was an almost com-
pletely student-produced performance featur-
ing forty acts, for the judges, the three
masters-of-ceremonies, and the
directors of the acts were teen-agers.

members will have reigned at formal and semi-formal dances.
For weeks before a dance a great advertising campaign for candi-
dates' votes is launched, original decorations are planned, publicity
is written, and tickets are sold. Each dance must be "the best."
IT'S ON WITH the dance after Barbara
Coleman and Phillip Jones have just been
crowned at the White Christmas dance.

MONEY WAS KING
AT THE MARDI GRAS
A time of fun, of laughter, of music,
and of excitement — that's the Mardi
Gras. The smell of hot buttered
popcorn, the clicking of ping-pong
balls against glass fish bowls, the
hawking of costumed vendors, the
odor of home-made cookies and candy,
that, too, is the Mardi Gras. It's
a time for clubs and music groups
to make money for their activities.
"RING A COMIC," the eighth grade choir
booth, drew a crowd with Rita Parker, Janice
Pedigo, Judith Heitzmann, and James Hart as

OPEN HOUSE AND SUPREME DAY
ARE TWO BIG EVENTS
THE photography laboratory proves to be a popular place.
Visitors are always welcome for
Open House, American Educa-
tion Week and Supreme Day.
Buildings are open during the
evening with displays of pupil
work and students demonstrating
projects for the visitors.

"There's no business like show business/'
Thespians agree. In spite of difficulties
in memorizing lines, off-day rehearsals, and
costume fittings, "the show must go on,"
and it always does! Our three directors
have produced three-act and one-act plays
during the school year. The applause and
prestige were rewarding to those in the casts
but the lessons in good sportsmanship,
patience, and perseverance meant more to them.
MAKING signs to advertise "The Robe" are John

DEADLINES ARE THE BUGABOO OF CANNON STAFFITES
We students who are journalistically
minded are given the opportunity
to write for our nationally-known
newspaper and yearbook, to edit our
student handbook, and to report for
local newspapers. Our weekly news-
paper, the Arsenal Cannon, has won
its fourth editorial award in Freedoms
Foundation and its tenth Quill and
Scroll International honor rating and
George H. Gallup Award. Our 1955
yearbook received C.S.P.A. Medalist
rating, N.S.P.A. All-American Honor
rating, and first place at the Wabash
Valley Conference. Surely our train-
ing will help us in many lines of work.
A GREAT event in the school year is autograph day when
the Arsenal Cannon Yearbook is distributed to subscribers.

BEHIND THE SCENES THEY DO THEIR SHARE
The story of our publications does not end with the reporters and editors.
Besides the writing staff many other groups cooperate. Behind the
scenes our technical workers, our business staff, our typists, and our
printers, are constantly at work doing their indispensable jobs. They
keep books, order supplies, do all the typing, mail Cannons, set type, and
keep the presses rolling. Our 160 agents sell subscriptions to the news-
paper and yearbook and deliver the papers once a week to their roll rooms.
SALESMEN who helped sell yearbook ads — Susie Hartz-
ler, Betty Warren, Tom Low, and Judith Michelfelder.
PRINT SHOP Instructors — Floyd Billington, weekly press-binding;
Ralph Clark, weekly linotype-make-up; George R. Barrett, weekly
printing advisor; Clyde Armel, yearbook ads — senior names.
NOT a sound is heard as staffites read
their very own paper, "The Popgun, at
the annual Cannon May Day luncheon.
WHILE SEVERAL decorate the
tree, others arrange toys which
the Cannon staff collected to
give to underprivileged school
families in the neighborhood.

We find enjoyment in taking part in our many school organizations.
Our wide variety of clubs provides us with the opportunity to
further our knowledge in nearly any field. The eighteen extra-
curricular organizations available help us to know the school
and to let the school know us. They teach us leadership
and resourcefulness, part of growing up to be good citizens. We
learn to accept responsibility, to do our share. Yes, we
find it fun working together through varied activities
for the betterment of our school, our community, and ourselves.

OUR R.O.T.C. STRIVES TO BUILD BETTER MEN BOTH MENTALLY
The R.O.T.C, organized during the
spring of 1919, was preceded by
the Cadet Corps in 1918, and the
Arsenal Guards. Today it is a full
six-company regiment of 450 cadets
with a drill platoon and 17 spon-
sors and a staff of three instruc-
tors. Its headquarters are in
the same Barracks which housed the
soldiers when these grounds were
an arsenal. Its drill field
is south of the West Residence.

Lost year for the 34th time the R.O.T.C. re-
ceived the academic honor rating for the
year 1954-55. Tech is the only school in
the country to be the recipient of this award
this many times. As in all groups at Tech,
each cadet is given a chance to progress
on his own merit. If he maintains a
high academic standard he is awarded
the Academic Ribbon. This training
furnishes excellent mental and physical
discipline and inculcates ideals of service.
OUR 1955 FEDERAL INSPECTION
FIFTH CORPS Army officers and special guests were
m the reviewing stand at the 1955 Federal Inspection.
OUR HONOR Guard aroused pride within us because of
their very skillful performance in following commands.
MRS. Houser pinned the American War Mother Medal on Ca-
det 2nd Lt. Scott McCoy as M Sgt. R. E. Johnson watched.
M SGT. JOHNSON and Principal Hanson Anderson pinned
the thirty-fourth consecutive star on the ROTC banner.
AS THE COLOR guard marched briskly past the grand-
stand, people stood at attention in reverent silence
and respect for their school and their country flags.

We students who are musically inclined may distinguish ourselves in either instru-
mental or vocal groups. We may advance according to our ability. Our Band,
Choir, and Orchestra, and the smaller groups derived from them have won many
first and superior ratings in district and state contests. Our Band plays at
athletic contests, in parades, and at ROTC Inspection. Our music groups
give entertaining performances at assemblies, and for local, civic,
and church groups. This spring the Music deportment sponsored the appearance
of the Crew-Cuts at Cadle Tabernacle to raise funds for new uniforms.

VARSITY BASKETBALL TEAM
ENJOYS FINE SEASON
Tech's varsity basketball squad enjoyed a fine
season during 1955-56 as it compiled a
record of 14 wins and only seven defeats. The
netmen, sparked by Captain Jon Sexson and sopho-
more Eddie Hannon, placed second in city stand-
ings and tied for third in the North Central
Conference. Despite their good season the Green-
dads fell to Shortridge in the opening game
of the Sectionals, suffering this loss for the
second straight year. Only team to whip the
Green Wave twice was Crispus Attucks; the
Tigers won both times by seven-point margins.
TECH and Warren Central centers jump high for the tip-off
in the opening varsity game of the 1955 basketball season.

GREENCLAD SPIRIT PRODUCES BALANCED FOOTBALL TEAMS
For the first time in years the Greenclads didn't
have what is commonly referred to as a
"one-man team." With the excellent blocking
and tackling of such sturdy linemen as Bill
Payne, John Hunter, and Jim Stonebraker, and such
speedy backfield men as Dick Mace, Fred
McCoy, and Jack McKeel, the team, under the able
coaching of Howard Longshore and Line
Coach Wallace Potter, finished sixth in the
North Central Conference and ninth in city
standings. Aiding in the team spirit,
playing the linebacker spot, Lowell Ensinger kept
the defensive platoon perking. Although
ridden by injuries, the first part of
the fall semester, the boys played hard,
trying with all they had and enjoying the sport.

The 1955 reserve football eleven finished
tossing the pigskin early in November
and wound up with an impressive record.
Only one defeat marred the Greenclads'
record, a 6-to-0 loss to Anderson. A
strong Crispus Attucks team tied
the reserves, 6 to 6. Coaching reserve
city champions was George Mihal.
TENSION surely mounts in a football game as a substi-
tute kneels, ready to enter the game, unidentified play-
ers on the Tech bench also await their turn to see action.
"HEADS YOU WIN" the referee seems to say to cap-
tains of the Tech and Howe football teams as both city
teams start their initial contest of the fall season.

OUR GOLF AND TENNIS TEAMS ARE DEVELOPING POWER
Golf and tennis teams, though they had
mediocre records when the Cannon went to
press, are looking forward to greener
pastures next year. Both Ernest Medcalfe
and Rowland Leverenz, golf and tennis
coaches respectively, lost nearly all of
their lettermen through graduation, last
spring. A building year, both coaches
are developing a nucleus for next season.

During the fall weather, a strong October wind blows fresh air into young
athletes' lungs while boys keep a steady pace over Tech paths covered by
leaves in a sport called cross country. Running two miles over irregular
ground strengthens the indurance that the cross country sguad needs for
interscholastic competition. Last fall Tech runners had a difficult schedule
running against teams which ranked in the state's top ten. With six of the
seven top boys on the varsity sguad returning, the future holds a shining star.

WE BUILD STRONG BODIES
TO HAVE HAPPY TEEN-AGERS
All types of activities make up a well-
rounded Health and Physical Education pro-
gram. Boys and girls build healthy
bodies by taking Physical Education and
Physical Fitness, one credit in each course
being required for graduation. They be-
come well adjusted both mentally and phys-
ically to fit into the pattern of their com-
munity by enrolling in courses in Posture,
Physiology, Narcotics, Nursing, Family Living,
Child Care, and Driver Training. The phi-
losophy of the school is that youth must
be strong physically as well as mentally.

OUR FACULTY AND SCHOOL PERSONNEL ARE SECOND TO NONE
Although our faculty is large and
has diversified interests, it is
a friendly group. Mornings mem-

laughing together as they empty
their office boxes. When we
students see the beautifully decor-

or the Student Center we often wish
that we, too, could attend the
colorful teas and coffee hours.
Our faculty is the guiding force
of our school; it is molding young
America into typical Americans.

Coffee Hours for the teachers the afternoon before the

THE RECENTLY named members of the Tech Legion be-
came acquainted as they chatted "over the teacups"
at a reception on October 25 in the Student Center.
We remember how thrilled 83 members of the
senior class were when, on October 10,
they were introduced to the school as mem-
bers of the Tech Legion, our honor
society for those with the highest number
of merit citations received during their
three underclass years. Only 10 per
cent of the boys and 10 per cent of the
girls in the senior class may wear the
green and white bar which marks a
person as a teen who has possessed
attributes of good citizenship and
qualities of personal worth which
have been recognized by his teachers.

DR. SHIBLER congratulates James W.
Yost, first Tech pupil to win a scholarship in
the VVestinghouse Science Talent Search.
FOR THE first time since Commencements have been in the sta-
dium at sunset the heavens wept so 1955 exercises were in the Gym-
nasium with Joseph Guidone presenting diplomas to 697 graduates.
DR. HENRY G. White had the sermon for
Vespers Sunday afternoon in the Gymnasium
with the Tech Choir furnishing the music.
ONE OF the really funny stunts at the
Senior Day program last spring was the

THESE BUSY WORKERS ARE
THE BACKBONE OF TECH
To comprise the backbone of our Tech
are three little-known, little-praised,
but most necessary groups: the cafeteria,
the custodial, and the Bookstore staffs,
who make it possible for our school to
operate so efficiently and effectively.
When we enjoy the beauty of a well-kept
campus, when we sit in an orderly
classroom, when we eat our lunch each
day in the lunchrooms, and when we pur-
chase supplies at our Bookstore, we
are enjoying the services of these people.
TWO OF our forty-eight member cafeteria
staff with Mrs. Elizabeth Ross, manager, are
Mrs. Esta Parsley and Mrs. Angle Clearwater.
MR. OLIVER Clark (left) is our efficient Book-
store manager who has as assistants Mrs.
VVilma Durham and Mrs. Laverne Stewart.
REPRESENTING our custodial staff of 47
members and our seven engineers are (left
to right) Carl Schooley, carpenter; Emerson
Emery, head engineer; Edward Hamilton, head
custodian; William Sowers and James Moylan,
campus caretakers; and Sgt. Forrest Allison.

1. No reputable merchant can afford to misrepresent
his product in any way.
2. Cash prices are much lower than credit prices.
Likewise short term credit is much more economi-
cal than long term accounts.
3. An old firm with a known reputation for quality is
100% safe to deal with. Why take any chances?
4. In a reputable store you are always welcome to
look without any pressure to buy. After all — there
is nothing to cover up.
