Text from Pages 1 - 104 of the 1952 volume:
Cur memories cannot recall a time when all nations
lived in harmony throughout the world. Threats of war
and war itself are not new to our generation. Only
through education can we hope to ohtain a free and lit-
erate world with unity between nations and peace among
men. Thus, we the Students of Ecorse High proudly ded-
icate the E-corsair to education for democracy.

to you for your
making the E-corsair possible!
lt is a pleasure to congratulate the members of
the Senior Class uoon successfully reaching this
milestone in your lives.
Someone has truly said, "Each of us is a part of

selves experiencedd' The experiences of your school
life, with the lcnowledges and skills you have gained
have become a part of you. As you proceed into wharf
ever the future may hold, you will more and more
treasure me-se school experiences.
Your future is largely within yourselves. What
you shall do and be is determined partly by outside
irvumstances, out, more truly, by your own inner

The Senior Class of 1952 and Annual Staff may be justly
Proud of the E-Corsair. Unlike the pirates of old , you---
the E-Corsair--have left a trail of worthy accomplishments
for those who follow.
The friendship and the associations you form , the basic
truths you learn, and the service you render help you inter-
pret the true meaning of life.
With increased knowledge, wisdom and understanding
you are now more able to assume the responsibilities and
grasp the opportunities which lie ahead.

THE E-CORSAIR has become n tradition in Ecorse High School
Cora-airs of old were hardy souls who accepted conditions
as they found them and made their own opportunities
The Corsairs of Ecorse High School are known as E-Cox-:airs
They are emblematic of the efforts of the students :Ln
their various activities, symbolizing their hope of
achievement and faith in themselves as stated in the motto
ot the graduates this year "'1'hey can who think they can '
We honor the class of 1952 and our best wishes go with
them as they continue their voyage

ln order that we may live happily in every social situation, we should
make use of the gentle traits of l-Qindliness, co-operation and tact, VVithout
these traits well developed, the student will be unable to cope successfully
with the experiences which concern life. By working together and co-
operating with each other we can develop these traits and therefore we
will help to better the citizenship training in our school.
Warren J n
As the clouds of war roll luglier over the international horizon.
there is driven home to each of us the deep appreciation that we are
Americans. Uppermost in all of our minds is the building of a better world.
I V Each can do his best by being a good citizen himself and then by
enllsflnil Others H1 a national army of good citizens. Today, perhaps as
never before. America is in need of strong and brave young men and women.

the program for the year.

The 1950-51 junior Varsity Basketball Squad completed a very successful season. Of fifteen
games played, they were defeated twice. They ended the season as Champions with Dearborn and
River Rouge tied for second place. This distinguished team was the first in Ecorse High's history to
win the junior League Championship.
With four boys from last year's championship team, the 1951-52 prospects looked good. They are
hoping to live up to the record established by last year's team. When the annual went to press, they
had won all but one of their games.

This year's Homecoming game was highlighted by a Homecoming Queen. This is the
first time in the history of Ecorse High School a queen has been chosen. She was picked
by the student body of the school and reigned over the Trenton-Ecorse game.
Lovely Helene Layoswas chosen as queen and her beautiful attendents were Anna Lee

Don Bari and his orchestra provided a var-

Top talents from Monte Carlo Studios were
exhibited during intermission.
Last hut not least, refreshments were
served hy two uuderclassmen who were
dressed in Oriental costume.
As soon as the seniors' guests stepped up-
on the sacred bridge. they entered into the
mysterious land of the Orient. The decora-
tion on the stage was a giant Buddha of
Kamakura ln the center of the dance floor
was a small Chinese boat, which we named
Ming Toy, floating in a stream at the foot
of a towering pagoda. Accents ofOriental
symbols were shown by murals, large yellow
dragons, and japanese mulberry trees. Chi-
nese landscaping formed a border for the
dance floor. Gaily colored lanterns hanging
from the ceiling and band stand gave the
finishing touch to the scene.

The E-Corsair comes to you from many helping hands. No other school project involves so many departments
and so many people. We're proud of the E-corsair because "we" made it. And who are "we"? VVell. There
is the Photography Club directed by Mr. Lantzsch. This club made all our pictures except those of the fac-
ulty and seniors. They were always ready to help. Then, the printing classes under Mr. Johnston are respon-
sible for every printed word in this book. The Art Department with Miss Margrett Milner's always helpful
guidance assisted our Art Editors, jean and Anthony, in making our posters and decorating our pages. Mr.
Peterson's Commercial Department did our typing. while Miss Rizzo in the library helped our research. And
"we" are also the staff members who toiled long hours over a borrowed table in 207 where this was conceived.
VVe wish to thank Mr. Hunt for originating our title which we think is clever- -The E-corsair--River Pilot. And
then we must thank all the teachers for without their help and indulgence. this annual would have been impossible.
VVe also want to thank Mr. Reidy and Mr. Riggs for their excellent sponsorship. And finally there is you who
have purchased this boo '.
