The first task was electing class officers. These officers were: Neal Fadden, president, Donald McWhirter, vice-president: Shirley Thompson, secretary, Donna Swartz- baugh, treasurer. The first activity was a Christmas party where gifts were exchanged. There was also a freshman dance, at which many of the class danced for the first time. The year ended with a splendid picnic at Elizabeth Park. The mphomore year was a busy year, indeed. Class officers were: Robert White, president, Martha Wilson, vice-presidentg Eugene DiCosty, secretaryg and Thelma Lines, treasurer. The first class activity for the year was a "Turkey Trot" with Bobbie Lippert's orchestra. Later on there was a Spring Dance with Ray Robbins' music. During the year funds were also added to the class treasury by a very successful bake sale. The year ended with a picnic at Rouge Park. For class officers the juniors elected: Edward Culbert, president, john Shesko, vice-president, Alexandria Kentris, secretary, Ethel Sipos and Jeanne Wolfe, treasurers. This was also the year in which were chosen the class colors-blue and white, and our class flower--the red carnation. The first dance of the year was a Junior-Senior dance. The junior girls sponsored a bake sale and cleared over twenty-three dollars. The magazine sale was an unprece- dented success, with Margret Held and Niles Schonfield as star sales getters. The I-Hop was the big event of the second semester. The auditorium was dec- orated to represent a garden scene with trellises of red roses for the most prominent decoration. Iack Okie furnished the music. The Senior officers were: Frank Schrettner, president, Roger Stevenson, vice-president, Luella Tabaka, secretary, and Adeline Abramczyk, treasurer. The senior class now numbered eighty-four, with several of its members in Various branches of the armed service. On November twenty-first Bill Hitter played for the Senior Prom. Patriotic decorations, consisting of huge flags and eagles, were used. The Christmas card sale further augmented the class treasury. Doreen Dawson and Frank Schrettner were the most effective sellers. The last semester was one of bustle and hurry. Doreen Dawson and John Ghindia led the class in selling the class year book which was prepared by the staff under the direction of Miss Connor and Mr. Vogt. Senior pictures, the last dance given by the senior class, the I-Hop, and the annual Skip Day, all added to the pleasures of the senior year. Graduation began in earnest with Class Day on June 10, Baccalaureate on June 13, and then at last the greatest day of all-graduation on Thursday, june 17. Cla ss Jang fTune I've Heard That Song Beforej Our high school years are all behind us now, So we will breath a solemn vow To keep the memory of its happy hours. Our class will go its way, and there will come a day When we'll display alliour hidden powers. We never can bring back our Frosh and Sophomore year, Our I-Hop memories so dear, Our Senior Skip Day was so fine.

We're loathe to leave the spot where we've spent such happy days, And it's with regret that we go our different w And as each ventures on his way, A voice in the heart seems to say In the road of life you have come to a bend, But not here does your journey end.

The Ecorse High School mixed chorus was organized in 1940 under the di- rection of Miss Ida Belle Knox. The average annual membership of the chorus is sixty. Anyone who is a senior high school student is eligible for membership. The purpose of the chorus is to provide high school students with musical knowledge and increase their appreciation of good music. Among the activities of the chorus is the annual Christmas Concert. This is given in connection with the high school band. The contribution of the chorus to the program consisted of several numbers by the mixed chorus and numbers by a girls glee club composed of members within the chorus. Last year there were several numbers by a boys' glee club also. In addition, special numbers including solos and selections by the girls' trio were given. The annual Spring Musical Festival held at Ypsilanti, Michigan, and sponsored by the Twin Valley Association has been discontinued because of difficulties in securing transportation from the various schools to Ypsilanti. It is hoped that this Festival will be continued after the war. During school assemblies the chorus frequently gives performances, and it furnishes musical numbers for the various graduation exercises. ntlefubon QS-oofc TL Row 1, left to right: Bob McQuestion, Frances Caldwell, Margaret Held, Phyllis Beckmann, Ella jean Seavitte, Imogene Carver, Betty Marth.

The First World War gave considerable impetus to the movement, which then spread through all parts of the civilized world. Now there are 5,201 clubs with a member- ship of 292,560. The Girl Reserves was first organized in Ecorse in 1929 at School IV with a member- ship of fifteen girls and was called the Amelia Earhart Triangle. The next year it was di- vided into two groups, one for ninth and tenth grades, the other for eleventh and twelfth grades, known respectively as the junior Girl Reserves and the Senior Girl Reserves. Senior Girl Reserves under the guidance of a sponsor and in affiliation with the Y.W.C.l1.. in Detroit have put on a program during peace years of money making projects, such as, movies, lectures, trips, parties, and service work. Now, close association over a period of years with other clubs in foreign lands enables them to render a real service to-girls in the war infested areas of France, Holland, England, Rumania, Hungary, Poland, China, and India. Last years' club dues paid to the Y.W. in Detroit helped send Suzanne, fleeing south ahead of the invaders, to be cared for at the first farm house in Unoccupied France. Locally, the members of this club are doing Red Cross Work, and trying to maintain a program to make life interesting and valuable to girls everywhere. The purpose of the club is to find and give the best, and its slogan is "To Face Life Squarelyf, The average membership is from twenty to thirty girls. In the days when the club was first organized everyone who wished to join was eligible. Today, all of this has been changed. In order to become a Girl Reserve one must be of high intelligence, good character, sound judgment, and adaptable to all situations. Besides these requirements, the person wishing to enter must also have a high recommendation from various faculty members.

In order to be eligible for membership, the girls must be in the ninth and tenth grades and have a good scholastic record. 'lshe purpose of this club is summarized in the club motto: aTo Find and Give the Best.' Recreational activities of the club consist of various sports. For example, volley ball and basketball games. Club members also perform patriotic duties, such as, the making of bandages for Cancer patients in the hospitals and rendering their services to the Red Cross CAQEF ZBA 4212127 Phyllis Diegel, Lee Butterfield, Lillian Babcock, Dolores Loomis, Margaret Toth, Betty Ray. gif, OSC-0LLtS 43 -If Row l, left to right: joan McCabe, Donna Gieckler, Anita Gerlach, Diana Slovenske, Marjorie Harvey, Evelyn Smith, Joyce Malewsky, jane Ann Dickey, and Barbara Holland.

The organization of Girl Scouts was founded by Juliette Low in Savannah, Georgia, in the year 1912. The purpose of Girl Scouting is to provide a variety of program activities to help pre- pare girls to become useful citizens. Scouting helps to make girls self reliant, and to de- velop strong character, and high ideals. The Ecorse Girl Scout Troop Number 174 is under the leadership of Mrs. Adams and her assistant leader, Betty Lou Shannon. The troop is divided into four patrols, each having a patrol leader. The four patrol leaders are: Dora Marinoff, Doreen Callow, Geraldine Filimon, and Betty Knox. The Girl Scouts during the -,ast year have been busy making articles out of leather, such as, coin purses, lanyards, and billfolds. They have also done some work in Woodcraft. When autumn comes, the scout program centers around hikes, picnics, and many other outdoor activities. In winter, the Girl Scouts enjoy tobogganing, and ice skating. Spring finds the Girl Scouts busy earning money by selling Girl Scout Cookies, having bake sales, candy sales, and sponsoring dances. In addition to these activities in which the Girl Scouts are engaged, they are active in doing their part to help to win the war. They have collected fats to be made into explosives they have made afghans and bookmarks for the wounded in hospitals. Now in time of need, , the members of the Girl Scouts have proven that they do not lack the strength that is neces- sary to meet the crisis which has arisen. 44 77817011.61 7'l0hOI",YOClC1L Row 1, left to right: Norma VaDerna, G.

The National Honor Society, founded by the department of Secondary-school principals in 1921, has proved itself of great value to the secondary schools of America. The establishment of a large number of chapters in the United States, in Puerto Rico, and in Hawaii is evidence of the need for such an organization in the secondary schools of the United States. Our Ecorse chapter, No. 1131, was founded in 1931 and boasts of one hundred ninety-six members. The local chapter has as members, students who are outstanding in scholarship, service, leadership, and character. The candidates must stand in the first third .of their respective classes in scholarship, have spent at least one year in Ecorse High School, and be chosen by the vote of the faculty.

For the first time in the modern era of baseball at Ecorse High School, the Ecorse Red Raiders baseball team finds itself without the services of their well- known coach, Francis Labadie. The duty of coaching this .year's team is in the hands of Athletic Director, Don Draper. Coach Draper has coached baseball before. Ecorse completed last season with a total of six victories as against six de- feats, and finished second place in the T.V.A.A. with a total of four wins as against two defeats. This year the team is out to win the downriver championship, and has back on the team the following experienced players: Captain Vincent Lovasz, john Ghindia, Norman Redwine, lake Fesko, john Rogers, Ray Schonfeld, Don Schuler, and Bob Cameron. Due to transportation conditions there will be no T.V.A.A. competition. Ecorse now has its schedule so fixed that it only plays the teams near by and there will be much competition among these downriver teams. Ecorse hopes to avenge some of the last year,s defeats and come up with a championship in this downriver district. .Baskefball Row 1, left to right: R. White, N. Redwine, I. Ghindia, V. Lovasz, D.

Cambell The Red Raiders successfully defended their championship laurels won in 1942 by taking nine of the ten games played against league competition. during the 1942-43 season. The Ecorse team won twelve of the sixteen games played and proved its right to be called one of the best athletic teams to wear the Red and White by defeating each of its scheduled opponents at least once during the season. A great deal of the credit for the success of the team should go to john Ghindia who acted as both captain and' coach throughout the campaign. Incidently, john car- ried off top scoring honors as well. Ecorse suffered its lone defeat at the hands of Dearborn early in the season. The high point of the battle for league honors was reached when Ecorse faced the Dearborn players in their second contest. Each team had lost but one game at that time, and when Ecorse won this crucial contest 36-25, the players carried off the league championship as well. The real thrill of the season came when the Raiders faced Wyandotte, The Board er Cities League Champion in the Class A Tournament, at Fordson Wyandotte had defeated Ecorse earlier in the season by a 33-31 score. Ecorse won 24--22, to make the season a complete success. The members of the graduating class who played an important part in the suc- cess ofthe team are: 1. Ghindia, N. Redwine, D. jones, B. White, I. Rogers, and F. Pongracz. The team played the following games: Ecorse 43, Wayne 23, Ecorse 20, Melvin- dale 225 Ecorse 40, Plymouth 29, Ecorse 35, Ypsilanti 23, Ecorse 31, Wyandotte 335 Ecorse 30, Dearborn 31, Ecorse 40, River Rouge 12, Ecorse 64, Wayne 165 Ecorse 36, Melvindale 165 Ecorse 38, Plymouth 235 Ecorse 45, Ypsilanti 21, Ecorse 41, Lin- coln Park 12, Ecorse 36, Dearborn 25, Ecorse 37, River Rouge 20.

The 1942 football season was one of the most successful in Ecorse history. Not only did the Red Raiders defeat River Rouge for the first time since their traditional rivalry came into being, but they also succeeded in winning seven out of the nine games played to earn a tie for the Twin-Valley Championship. The highlight of the season was, of course, the River Rouge game which the Raiders won, 6 -0, before a sell out crowd. The game was scoreless until the last quarter when Lovasz and Tabula collaborated to put over the lone touchdown which meant the game. Another big moment came when Ecorse battled the undefeated Dearborn team to a standstill to capture a 13-0 triumph and a share in the league championship. The team this year was coached by two old timers who were called into service due to the resignation of former Coaches Marsh and Wilson. Mr. Hunt took over the duties of head coach, while Mr. Draper acted as assistant coach and trainer. The seniors who played a big role in making the season a success are: N. Red- wine, R. Blair, I. Ghindia, D. jones, G. Ture, H. Kromrei, W. Shell, R. White fco- capt.J F. Pongracz, F. Pearson, P. Tabula Cco-capt.J, and K. Nay.

Pearson took a first at the heated meet against Dearborn in the hundred-yeard dash and in the two- twenty placed a close second. In the high jumping event, Allain took a thirdg and in the half-mile run, Taylor came second and Childress, third. In the meet against Melvindale. Pearson again scored by a second, both in the hundred-yard dash and in the two-twenty. Niles Schonfeld and Emilio Conti. the teamys niilers, also showed promise. Conti came in second in the Melvin- dale vs. Ecorse mile race, and Niles Schonfeld third. Due to transportation circumstances beyond control, all meets were not run off as planned. This year there were five meets run off between schools in this area. awin B. Vollmar, H. Covert, B. Blair, V. Mitea, lim Rice, coach, B. White, H. Kromrei, V. Cuingan, H. Marcott, I.

For the second consecutive year the senior crew attained the title of "International Champions of North America." The crews were coached this year by jim Rice, an internationally-known coach for fifty years. Mr.'Rice, in referring to the senior crew, said, "They are the best high school crew I ever saw." The crew deserved this comment, and is indeed thank- ful to jim for all that he has done for them. Among this year's accomplishments by the senior crew were two things never be- fore accomplished by a high school crew. The first was the winning of both the Senior High School and the Senior Heavyweight Races of the Central States Regattag the second was the winning of the Senior High School and Senior Heavyweight Races of the Canadian Henley Regatta. Another notable accomplishment was the defeat of Culver Military Academy on their own course. The seasonal record was as follows: At Chicago, the crew met and defeated Waller High School of Chicago, Lane Tech, also of Chicago, and Madison High of Madison, Wisconsin. At Culver Military Academy, the crew defeated Culver for the first time in nine years on their own course. At the Central States Regatta, the crew made history by winning the Senior High School and Senior Heavyweight Races. At the Canadian Henley, the largest regatta in Canada, the crew again made history by winning the Senior High School and Senior Heavyweight Races. . Four members of the senior crew are now serving in the armed forces. They are: Robert Vollmar, U.S.N.R. Aviation Cadet, Virgil Ciungan, U.S.N.R. Aviation Cadet, Robert Blair, U.S. Army, and Harold Covert, U.S. Coast Guard. The junior Varsity Crew also enjoyed an undefeated season. This crew is entirely composed of oarsmen who havehad no previous experience. At Chicago they won over Lane Tech of Chicago by a large margin. At Culver they defeated the highly praised Juniors of Culver Military Academy by an exciting margin. They continued their successful season by defeating Wyandotte's Iuniors in a thrilling race. The crew members are: I. Gregen, C. Weary, K. Nay, W. Maxted, G. Pappas, B. Hughes, E. Kish, E. Kromrei, and H. LeBlanc. 195 5' -4, A -"E r-iii Ehgfbawmn 14, 4.
