THE EDisonifln 1941 PUBLISHED BY EDlSOn HIGH SCHOOL EAST GAR.Y, INDIANA FOREWORD For 1 a number of years, the Seniors have pub- lished for their own class members a year book — a record of their activities. When the possibilities of a publication were discussed this year, it was decided to attempt a school year book instead of one just for the graduating class. It is hoped that such an undertaking this year may be the beginning of a better publication in future years, A book of thi3 kind expresses certain ideals of the school. It exemplifies the spirit of the school throu gh its organizations and its activities. It is our sincere hope that the students of Edison High have contributed to achieving worth-while dreams for all.

Bailey - - - Superintendent of East Gary Schools F. R. Stroube ------- Principal of Edison High School Board of Education of the East Gary Schools John P. Kiramell ------- President John K. Coulter ------- Treasurer Earl C. Kline -------- Secretary GREETINGS Every 3tudent, teacher and member of this community can take pride in their schools. We of Edison High School are proud of our accomplishments and know that they are the result of the fine spirit of helpful co-operation that exists between students, teachers, and members of the community. We recognize that the schools are the hope of America and have tried to assume that responsibility. We have tried to gain a better knowledge so that we may solve the common problems of hu- man needs and make our community a bet- ter place in which to live . Best wishes to each of you for greater accomplishments 1 HISTORY OF EDISON All great institutions like all great men have their small beginnings and Edison High School is no exception. We sometimes think of Edison as a small school, but we have come a long way in the thirteen years since the first high school classes were organized in East Gary, Much water can flow under the bridge in that time, but much progress can also be made in the same length of time. We have made some mistakes and we have made some very successful achievements in the history of our school; however, let us have a glimpse of the beginning. The eastern portion of the Central School building was built in 1914, but the west half was not added until 1928. It had been the custom of the School Town to pay the trans- fer tuition of the high school students of East Gary to send them to Emerson of Gary. This procedure was followed until the Central Building was remodeled. The first high school classes were therefore organized in September, 1928 when the 9th grade was added to the traditional eight-grade system. Mr. Kenneth J. Wright was the principal of the Central School in 1928-29 and Mr. Harry Condon became the first high school teacher. This first freshmen class left a land mark by which they may long be remembered when they gave the tall flagpole which stands in front of the Central Building as a parting gift when they transferred to the Emerson School at the close of their Sophomore year. The following year the tenth grade was added to the high school and Mr. Condon succeeded Mr. Wright as principal. This year is also memorable in the history of our school as it brought Miss Hilda I. Eshelman, Edison ' s beloved Dean of Girls to East Gary as a teacher. Mrs. Hazel Crawford was also employed as a part time teacher that year. The ninth and tenth grade were located in the two west rooms and one of the east rooms upstairs in the Central Building. Yes, they had a basketball team that year and several games were played, but in order to have a team it was necessary to use some of the bo-js from the 8th grade. Mr. George B. Garland, who is now the principal and teacher of 7th and 8th grades at Ainsworth, was the coach of that first team. Mr. Willis H. McAllister, who is now a teacher in the Merrillville High School was a member of the faculty of that year, Mr, A. E. Steele succeeded Mr. Harry Condon as principal in 1931-32 and Mr. Ralph Napier joined the faculty this year as coach of the basketball team and a teacher in the high school. The present high school building was under construction at this time and everyone was anxious- ly looking forward to the time when they could occupy the new building. The school was organized as a junior high school in 1932-33 and the 11th grade was added when the school moved into the Edison Building in September of that year. Miss Mary E. Mason and Mr. Paul Steele we re added to the faculty, and the East Gary School had added Home Economics and In- dustrial Arts. The 7th and 8th grades were returned to the Central Building in the fall of 1935-34 and the first Senior class in the history of the school very proudly laid down tradi- tion for future graduating classes. Mr. Virgil Bailey succeeded Mr. A. E. Steele as principal in 1933-34, and per- haps the most important thing that happened during the year was the addition of Mr. Reeder Stroube to the faculty as science teacher and coach of girl ' s physical education and basketball. Mr. Stroube succeeded Mr. Bailey as principal of the high school in 1935-36 and has served in that capacity since. Miss Hazel Hartley joined the faculty in the middle of the year 1934-35, while Mr. Doyle D. Baliff, Josephine Chapman, and Hilda Woollard were also new members. Mr. Baliff became the coach the next year and has done much to give Edison a favorable position in athletics in this part of the state. Miss Hartley has developed the commercial de- partment until at present it is almost double its size in 1934-35. The commercial department does excellent work and many girls and a few boys have received valuable training in this field. Alfred Schara, dynamic toacher of shop and coach of track joined the East Gary faculty at the second semester of 1935-36; Elizabeth Mills v as also a faculty mem- ber in that year, and Miss Carol Nuss succeeded Miss Woollard, and Miss Chrystelle Hoar became music superivisor. Miss Viola C. Englehardt came in 1937-58. Mr. Wenger did much to im- prove the English department and did especially fine work in public speaking and dramatics. Harold F. Weber, Louise Pemberton and Bruce Brubaker became members in 1938-39. Mr. Weber has done some fine work in the wood shop, and Miss Pemberton’s work in Art has been outstanding. The progress of band work in East Gary has been remarkable under the able guidance of Mr. Brubaker, who had to start without even the nucleus of a band when he came. The band has been very solidly supported by the community through the Band Boosters organization. Miss Dorcas Anderson and Miss Thelma Carr came to East Gary in 1939-40, Miss Carr’s work in girl’s physical education has been very good. In 1940-41 a school library was organized and Mrs. Dana Brown became our first Librarian. Mrs. Brown was not new to the East Gary system, but was transferred to Edison from Columbus school where for many years she had been a success- ful teacher. Miss Evelyn Leberer is our most recent addition to the faculty, having succeeded Miss Car r who resigned to accept a position in Niles, Michigan. The progress of some of our departments has been gradual but very sure. The policy of the Board of Trustees has had to be one of conservation because of lack of finance. How- ever, the woodshop is now in very good shape, having several very fine wood working machines. The science department has some very good equipment which has been added from time to time; this department should have more room and further equipment. The commercial department is in good condition and now has 22 good machines against the original 10 used- machines which constituted its first equipment. Many valuable reforonce books have been added to the school library which started with practically nothing in 1928. The use of the lengthened period was started in 1933 and the first supervised study was begun in that year. This is a decided improvement ovor the short recitation period. The burden of financing the schools weighs less heavily on the local community now than it did before the high school was established. In 1927 the assessed valuation of property in East Gary was ;„ 2 , 745 , 495 . 00 as against $2, 112, 000.00 in 1940; the tax rate in East Gary ii 1927 was : ;1 ,3.10 per 100.00 of assessed valuations and in 1940 it was $1.84. This re- duction in tax rate and assessed valuation has been accompa- nied by an increase in school enrollment from 630 in 1927 to more than 900 in 1940-41. The change in method of school finance in the stato, whereby the state contributes to the support of the local schools, has helped make this possible. Another factor which has aided greatly is the fact that the per capita cost of education of the high school student has been reduced during this time from 174.78 per year in 1931- 32 to $88.59 per year in 1939-40, The high school building was built in 1931-32 at a cost of more than $60,000.00 for building and equipment, all of which has been paid except $3000.00. The School Board, how- ever, had accumulated a cash reserve at tho time of con- structing the building almost sufficient to pay for it. This cash reserve which the Board was accumulat ing partly account- ed for the extremely high tax rate in 1927. The subject offoring of the school has been increased until there are four separate curricula for wi ich the high school student may qualify. The increased offering cf subject matter makes it possible to serve better tho needs of the local community. It is the hope of tho school officials that our school will be able to continue increasing the offering until every boy and girl in the community can find something in which he is especially interested. Including the seniors of 1941 we have had approximately three-hundred graduates of the high school. It is especial- ly gratifying to know we have more students each year who are qualifying for and attending institutions of higher learning. In view of the above fact, and because we have adopted a rule which requires an average scholarship of 85 % for the four years for a student to be eligible for recommendation for college entrance, I think it advisable to call the attention of all undergraduates to the advisability of at- tempting to improve their study habits and thereby increase their scholastic standing. Research studies have shown thero is a definite relationship between grades and earning ability in later life. If every student realized fully that he is working for himself rather than for the instructor, his study habits and his scholastic standing would show a definite im- provement. Edison high school, like all public schools in America, exists for the sake of the students rather than the teachers. I do sincerely hope our school will develop a better standard of scholarship in the future, because there is no other way in which the individual student can profit so much. Our earnest Gos- ' ro is that the future of our school may far outshine its past history, but, if it docs, it will be due more to the efforts of the individuals who comprise the student body than to the efforts of any other person or persons . The school spirit of the student body in Edison High has for years been very good. The members are loyal and cooperative in every respect. Their citizenship has general- ly boon good and most students arc courteous and polite. Someone has said, " Good is never permissible when better is attainable. " Therefore, we hope that those conditions which arc good may continue to improve in the future. With pleasant recollections of the past and fondest hopes for the future, I wish the seniors of ’41 " bon voyage. " Supt . of East Gary Schools VIRGIL I. BAILEY, A.B., M.S.

A., Commercial Club Boxing CUSS POEM We entered Edison High School, in the year of " 51 " , With a very determined spirit, a class of three score and eleven, The first year we were quite raw and also exceptionally green. They hazed us up and down the school; we weren ' t to be heard or seen. Our class was very well equipped with might and brawn and brain And we were quite determined to increase the hall of Edison fame . Our sophomore year some members of our class dropped out of sight-- They had all the knowledge their brains would hold, and couldn ' t keep up the fight. The rest of us just plowed right on, determined that at last A signed diploma we ' d receive, when our four years had passed. In our junior year we gave many parties, plays, and dances; And this was tho beginning of many puppy- love romances. The year was drawing to a close and things began to pop — The big event for all the year, the final junior hop. The Prom we thought a groat success, wo held it the fourth Of May; Beautiful Hawaii was the setting, Hawaiian music gay. Vve lost a few more members, this our junior year. And more were yet to go before our last school day was here. Our senior year arriving, with relief our mombers sighed. We strutted up and down the halls for we wore dignified. Our senior year was quite eventful, accomplishments were great; But the time was drawing closer when at last wo ' d meet our fate A Prom again-- this time was given In honor of our class; It was attended by one and all, each with his lad or lass. Graduation day at last is here and the time has come to go. Best wishes to you, other classes, may you thrive and grow [ We say goodbye! We must admit it ' s been a lot of fun, And there ' ll never bo another class like the class of " 41. " — By Richard Dunn Anderson and John Samuel Husted SENIOR ACTIVITIES Tho Soniors entered Edison this year with tho determination to make it one of tho best years of thoir livos. Work has boon coupled with fun, and tho high- school days will bo lookod back upon with many happy memories . Tho activities for financial gain have included a danco in tho fall and anothor in February, and a rollor-skating party at the Atla3 Rink in Chester- ton on May 5, A Senior Farty was hold at tho Scout Cabin in September. The Senior Play, " One Mad Night, " was presented May 21, under tho direction of Miss Nel- son. Tho publication of the yearbook has been ono of tho major undertakings of tho class, and tho committee has appreciated greatly tho cooperation of all in tho publication of it — especially those who worked so faithfully and untiringly on sten- cils and mimoographing. It has boon a pleasant year and all hesitate to say " Farewell l " BACCALAUREATE Tho Baccalaureate, tho first of tho graduating activitios for the forty-soven Seniors, was hold Sunday, May 18. in tho Edison auditorium. The processional, " Pomp and Circumstance " by Elgar, was played by Sara Gootzc, Following this was a vocal solo, " Tho Prayor Perfect " by Riloy-Stonson, sung by Virginia Foster. Other musical numbers included a cornet solo, " Hyacinth Polka " by Vandcr Cook, played by Dale Cobble; and the clarinet quartet, " Petite Quartet " by Crosso, played by Clifford Jeff or is, Warren Prince, Alvorissa Faupel, and Jack Walloy . The address of the evening was given by The Reverend F. X. Guerre, Very challenging thoughts were given on " The Laws of Life, " based upon Tho Ton Commandments. Lucillo Jacobs, a senior student, capably offered the invocation and benediction. COMMENCEMENT The long-awaited occasion arrived Friday, May 23. Following the precedent set by the Class of ' 40, student speakers were uscd--choscn from those having the highest scholastic rankings for seven semesters ’ work in high school. Those appearing as speakers were Dorothy Crago, Lorraine Byman, Smith Goetzo, Natalie Iaynski, Frank Hyde, Patty Minard, and William Ramsay. Jack Husted, saluta- torian relinquished his privilege as speaker to Lorraine Byman. William Mundorf and Richard Ander- son offered the invocation and benediction, respec- tively. American Legion awards for the outstand- ing girl and the o utstnding boy were presented by A. B. Daugherty. Diplomas were presented to the graduates by Mr. Bailey, Superintendent of the East Gary Schools. CLASS WILL We, the Class of 1941 of Edison High School, being of sound mind and memory, do hereby make and publish this, our last will and testament. To our principal and our teachers we leave blessed peace, calm days and peaceful nights, undisturbed by the harrowing problems that we as a class presented them. To them, too, we leave memories t Memories, that in days to come will soften and grow mellow, and finally serve only as amusing tales to brighten their autobiographies. Of even greater value, we leave our erstwhile instructors and guardians a vast fund of experience. Experience that will help them, we hope, to meet the problems of future senior classes with fewer headaches and greater optimism. To our successors, the Junior Class, wo leave our pres- tige, our dignity, and out scats in the senior class rooms. In addition we bequeath to them the joy and zest of competing for class honors, a taste of sorrow for those who don ' t quite make the grade, and quiet pride for those who do. We leave them the joys of anticipation, regret for lost opportunities and the many impressive resolutions we made during the past year. Unfortunately the resolutions are a bit battered, but perhaps the Juniors can patch them up and keep them in hotter condition than we did. For the sophomores, alas, we have nothing to offer that would seem of value to them. What could «re leave them? The class that has everything. Brains, beauty and an inexhaust- ible supply of self-esteem. At the moment they are enjoying that most enviable of all scnsations--the assurance that the world is their apple, and a nice rosy apple at that. All we can give them is our sincere hope that they can stand up under the shock when they discover, as they will, that even the most tempting looking apple can conceal a worm in its core. To the freshmen, bless their hearts, we bequeath all our dreams that didn ' t come true, our ambitions that we never quito achieved, and our once shining belief in the essential rightness of all things. Wc leave them the unequalled joy of giggling at nothing; the pains and pleasures of puppy love, which they will be very sure is not puppy love; and the thrill of discovering unsuspected talents within themselves. To all those who will one day be students at Edison High School wo leave all that has been most precious to us during our school days here. The power to make lasting friend- ships; the breathtaking thrill of watching a basketball team carry the red and black of Edison to a glorious victory, and the heartbreaking thrill of watching a gallant team go down fighting to a glorious defeat. We leave them the glow of satisfaction that comes from representing their school on the field of honor; companion- ship, and laughter, and the ever increasing enjoyment of life that comes with increasing knowledge. To our teachers, to the underclassmen, and to the future students; to all those who share and will share the love we fool for Edison High school, we leave our blessing and our solemn pledge of unwavering loyalty. — Cla33 of 41 JUNIOR CLASS FIRST ROW--Donna Mansfield, Evelyn Clark, Grace Ward, Georgiana Hott, Helen Schulze, Beatrice Thoesen, Clara Izynski, Esther Harmon, Helen Dorochoff, Mildred Barbknecht, Agnes Maretich, Mary Tanner, Norma Jaster.

JUNIOR CLASS The class of 42 has distinguished itself in many fields and has shown that there is great possibility of further accom- plishments . The freshman and sophomore years followed in much the same manner as for other classes--students became acquainted with the customs and traditions of the school, and began planning toward the junior and senior years. The school year of 1940-41 brought with it the respon- sibility and privilege of planning for the Junior Prom. The class sponsored a dance November 26 and a roller skating party February 5, both of which were financial projects, as well as opportunities for fun. " The Blockhead, " a three-act comedy by Jules Amhurst, was presented by a cast from this class, Friday, March 21, under the direction of Miss Nelson. The annual Junior Prom was hold in the Marquette Pavi- lion, on the shores of Lake Michigan, May 2, The scenic back- ground added to the Prom ' s beauty and dignity. Approximately one hundred students, guests, and alumni danced to the music furnished by Don Lang and his orchestra. The officers for the year were: President- ------------- -Andrew Garber Vice-President ---------- -Helen Dorochoff Secretary- --------------- Mary Baker Treasurer- ------------ -Georgianna Hott Sponsors - - Miss Carr, Miss Leberer, and Mr. Weber SOPHOMORE CLASS To Sophomores is granted the privilege of being no longer the " new " ones in Edison. They have become more settled in their plans, and in their choices of subjects, curricula, etc. They have likewise become more financially settled with class dues gradually building a substantial fund. A party was held in Edison Gym, November 13, with thirty- seven class members present. Airplane bunco and refreshments provided an enjoyable evening for all. The second semester party was held April 29. Various games were played, and fro- zen custard was served for refreshments. Everyone present had a very pleasant time. To the Sophomores this year was also granted the privi- lege of sponsoring a matinee dance, January 21. This served as a social get-together for both alumni and students, as well as a financial benefit for the class. As the members of the Sophomore Class will soon become Juniors, all look forward with much eagerness to a year filled with class activities. Officers for the year were the following: President- ------------- -Vivian Krysch Vice-President ---------- -Virginia Foster Secretary- ------------- Lillian Kipple Treasurer- ------------ -Robert Clements Sponsors ------- -Miss Hartley and Mr. Baliff SOPHOMORE CLASS FIRST ROW — Virginia Foster, Sara Goetze, Lillian Kipple, Beverly Bratton, Wanda Walczak, Dorothy Harbison, Jane Lindberg, Kathleen Clark, Elwanda Jennings, Dorothy Bender, June Homan, Bonita Reich, Betty Wilson, Betty Tarrant, Norma Clements.

FRESHMAN CLASS Perhaps the greatest task or opportunity offered the Freshmen is that of getting acquainted with each other, with other students, with the faculty, and with the customs and traditions of Edison High School. Because the students in this class came from both Columbus and Central Schools, as well as some outside of East Gary, this was a very important undertaking, and proved to be well done. Members of this class have gladly and enthusiastically entered into all activities for which they were eligible, and have given generously of their abilities to be of assis- tance wherever possible. The only social activity of the class for the year was a party held in the Edison Gym, November 30, for which danc- ing, bunco, and ping-pong furnished the entertainment. At the close of this year, all these students are ready to leave the ranks of the Freshmen and enter in earnest the responsibilities given to the Sophomores. Officers of the class were as follows: First Semester President- -------------- Roy Courtney Vice-President ---------- Mitchell Morocco Secretary- ------------ -Priscilla Dault Treasurer- -------------- Jack Coulter Second Semester President- ------------ Mitchell Morocco Secretary- ------------ -Priscilla Dault Treasurer- ------------- -Marian Thorne Sponsors- ------- -Miss Nelson and Mrs. Brown VARSITY BASKETBALL FIRST ROW — Jack Gunning, Walter Smith, John Borsen, Robert Baker Manager, John Benedict, Jack Bonner, Bill O ' Rourke.

Because they accumulated twenty-one victories and only seven defeats, they were the co-champions of the Lalce-Porter Conference, winners of the Valparaiso Sectional, and winners of the Little Five Holiday Tournament, and because of their splendid performance against Froebcl of Gary in the Gary Regional Tournament, we have definite proof of the prowess of this great team. Returning from last year ' s squad. Coach Doyle Baliff had six lettermen with’ whom to work. These boys were Vic Kadish and Art Bolint, centers; John Borsen and Jack Gunning, forwards; and John Benedict and Jesse Price, guards. With boys of such ability, and the addition of Bill O ' Rourke, Joe Honkoski, Walter Smith, Jack Bonner, and James Smith, a fine team was formed. Opening the season with Wheeler, Edison came out ahead by a score of 33-26. In this first game, our Edison fans were given a glimpse of what to expect the remainder of the season. The boys persistent scrapping for the ball, plus the superior ball-handling and coordination, evidenced their desire to win. After their first victory the Eagles went into the central part of the state to meet V estficld and Carmel. The boys were hard-pressed by Westfield, but excellent playing in the last quarter sent the team into a lead, which they held to win the game 30-25. In meeting Carmel, they had to match baskets with one of the finest teams in central Indiana, and they lost in an overtime game 29-27. With a taste of defeat the boys then mot Crown Point which proved to be a slaughter, as the Edison team led at the end of the third quarter, 21-10. The following game found the team in a nip and tuck battle with Griffith, and when the final whistle blew, Edison had been beaten by a 28-26 score. Then followed two heartbreaking games with Hobart and Tolleston, both of which ended with Edison on the short end of 40-36 and 40-25 scores. The Eagles then pulled out of their slump by beating Merrillville by a 27-20 score. Incidentally, this was the first conference triumph of the season. In their next showing the boys beat Dyer, who had not been defeated all year, by a 29-28 count. Entering into the Little Five Conference Tournament, the Eagles had a record of five wins and four defeats, and v ere never conceded a chance. In this tournament the Eagles struck with everything they had, whipping Hobart, Chesterton, and the favorite Dyer, whom the Eagles had defeated before. In this tournament the Eagles returned with the Victory Ball and the tournament trophy. Edison boys who were chosen on the all-tour- ney team v ere John Benedict, guard, John Borsen, forward. Back from the holidays in tip-top shape, the boys con- tinued their fine record by successively beating Wheeler 49-31, Lowell 36-24, and Wirt 20-10. Tolleston proved to be their stumbling block in the next game by getting a 21-19 de- cision. With renewed fury the boys settled down to wallop Edison of Gary 37-25, but followed by letting Griffith get a revenge win v ith a 30-27 score. This was followed by four victories over Hobart, Portage, Crown Point, and Calumet. Thus when entering the Valparaiso Sectional, our Eagles had a fine record of 17 wins and 6 defeats. Edison opened play with a decisive win over Crown Point and then Hobart. In a semi-final game with Hebron, Joe Hon- koski led his team mates in a 50-24 victory over the Hebron five and in the final game the boys took the Merrillville Pirates. Boys chosen on the all-sectional squad included Ed- ison ' s Joe Honkoski--ccntcr, John Borscn--forward, John Bene- dict — guard. Entering the Gary Rcgionals with Frocbcl, Rolling Prairie, and Rensselaer, the Eagles were the underdogs. In drawing Froebel, Edison had a tough opponent; but, if a victory were possible, people were talking about a state championship for Edison. The play centered around a colored performer, Minor, who was held to 3ix points. The final score read 32-26. In this game our baskctccrs showed what they were really made of, and defeat was no disgrace. Art Bolint, with his crazy one- handed shot, and rugged Vic Kadish were chosen on the all-Re- gional tourney team. East Gary was really proud of these boys, and their games will always bring us happy recollections. As they were the first sectional winners in the history of this school, they deserve all the plaudits and praise heaped upon them. Many honors were bestowed upon the beys, and just they were. Jean Kusky, Plelen Dorochoff, Alvcrissa Faupel, Priscilla Dault, and Bob Swift, Edison ' s cheer leaders, added greatly in backing the team. Y c may never seo boys play with such coordination, timing, and ability in years to come. Hats off to Coach Baliff, a grand coach who has put out many fine teams. May his teams in the futuro attain the heights the cage crew reached. " B " TEAM The Edison Eaglets of »40-’41 finished the sea- son with fifteen games won and three lost--an average of .833. After losing the opener 18-13 to the Wheeler Bearcats, the next ten successive games were vic- tories. The winning streak was brought to an abrupt end by tho Blue Raiders of Tollcston. Then came Edison of Gary, who bowed before tho power of the mighty Eaglots. Griffith, the ultimate conference winner, beat East Gary by a narrow mar- gin and gave them the only conference sot back of the season. This was followed by four more vic- tories, bringing the season to a successful close, and gave Edison second place in the Lake-Porter Con- ference . The boys who playod on the B Team wore Ted Puchowski, Bob Zoller, Mike Kovalow, Tony Bobrow- ski, Tom Cogley, Andrew Garber, George Bowman, Was- sel Kronokwa, John Ehlcn, Henry Weber, Russell Mil- burn, and Benny Owen. Coach Doyle Baliff piloted the " B " Team through the season, and Nick Marotich served as student managor . BASEBALL Centered around the veterans of the previous year, the baseball team of the year 1940-41 tied for second with Merrillville in the Lake-Porter Conference. This team competed in seven games with " nines” of the area and came out victorious in three of them. The team completed the season with an earned run average of 3.1 run3 per game. They had fine pitching and good support on the part of all members of the team. John Borsen led in the batting raco with an average of ,346 and was followed by Martin Armour and Bill O ' Rourke. The team as a whole did not make many hits but they came at the time they were needed. The only team to shut the boys out was the Dyor team, winner of the Lake-Porter Confer- ence • The boys who received major awards included: John Borsen, outfielder and pitcher; John Benedict, outfielder; Bill O ' Rourke, short stop; Captain Bill Baker, outfielder; Wassol Kadish, catcher; Victor Kadish, pitcher; Jack Bonner, pitchor; Walter Smith, third base; James Smith, first base; Tom Colley, catcher; Jim Martin, outfielder; Mike Kovalov, short stop; Joe Honkoski, outfielder; Martin Armour, out- fielder; Roy Courtney, second base. Others included with the group are: Norman Blackman, Tony Bobrowski, Coach Doyle Baliff, and Manager Bob Baker. WRESTLING The wrestling team of 1940-41, under the direction of Coach Harold Weber, ended the season with only one victory and five defeats. This may seem to have been a fairly bad season, but when it is taken into consideration the type of opponents with whom they competed, the record is one of which the school may be proud. In each match the opposing team had to go to the very limit to come out ahead. Returning from last year ' s highly regarded team, we had such veterans as Wassel Kadish, Bill Ramsay, Harold Ramsay, Bill Slease, Jesse Werner, and one minor award winner, Fred Ehlen, With this fine nucleus to work with. Coach Weber rounded out his team with Frank Hyde, Jim Frederick, Sammy Melton, Jim Pierce, and Walter Edgerly, The boys got off to a fine start by winning from Hammond Clark ' s Pioneers, Captain Bill Ramsay, Wassel Kadish, Harold Ramsay, Bill Slease, Jesse Werner, and Fred Ehlen all came through with victories. In the matches that followed, Edison had individual winners each time, but not enough to come home with team victories. In the following matches the boys put forth every- thing they had, but it just wasn ' t enough. High point man of the year proved to be Bill Slease, a sophomore with fine ability, who was closely followed by Frank Hyde.

The " E Men ' s Club " was duly organ- ized and a constitution v as drawn up and ratified by the mem- bers , The club officers to be chosen were president, vice- president, and secretary-treasurer. The club ' s purpose is to create more unity and friendship among the lettermen, to create more interest in athletics, and in every way further the athletic program of Edison High School. The only require- ment of a student to become a member is to have earned a major letter in one of our major sports: baseball, basket- ball, track, or wrestling. A meeting is held once each month and others as the president sees fit and necessary. The secretary-treasurer keeps an account of all the proceedings , records all payments in, or drafts upon the club. He keeps a record of all meet- ings and posts bulletins to announce all particulars for meetings, and carries on all correspondence for the club. The first year the club ' s officers were: president- John Shakula, vic@-presid.ent-Steve Fedorchak, and secretary- treasurer-Charles Garber. This first year saw the success- ful cooperation between our athletes which was a definite asset to our student body. The club for the year 1940-41 began with the election of John Borscn-president , John Bonedict-vice-president , and Bill Baker-secretary-treasurer. The members made no change in the constitution, but were very active otherwise. Mem- bers for this year, besides the officers, included: Wassel Kadish, Bill O ' Rourke, Jack Gunning, Arthur Bolint, Victor Kadish, Richard Anderson, Bill Ramsay, Walter Smith, James Smith, Joe Honkoski, Harold Ramsay, Jesse Werner, Tony Bob- rov ski, and William Sicas e.

EDISON COMMERCIAL CLUB Although the Edison Commercial Club is comparative- ly a new organization and was organized the second se- mester of last school year, it has a membership of for- ty students in the commercial department. Membership in the club is voluntary; however, it is restricted to students in the commercial department. Meetings were held monthly, and subjects in regard to business that were of interest to commercial stu- dents were discussed, as one purpose of the club is to give students the opportunity to discuss problems and topics relative to business that are not covered in the regular classes offered in our school. Last fall, members of the club had the privilege of taking a worth-while tour through the Gary Post- Tribune plant and the Gary State Bank. The students saw the actual operation and routine process of work of these two types of business. A demonstration on the stenotype machine and also machine calculation was given at the last meeting. As for social life, members of the club had a very enjoyable time at two parties, one party each semester, the first being a Christmas party and the second being held this spring. Through the untiring efforts of Miss Hartley, teacher in the commercial department, this club has prospered nicely. CLUB OFFICERS: President . . Vice-President Secretary . Treasurer . .

It grew from thirteen members to forty-five members at the end of the first year. During its first year the band made several appearances and gave a full length " concert . It also entered the District Class " D " Band Contest for beginning bands and won second div- ision while competing with several bands that were much older. During the second year the ba nd, besides the annual con- cert and many other appearances, participated in the Class " C " District Contest at La Porte, won First Division and a straight " A " rating from all three judges, and fine compliments. In doing so, it defeated many bands much older and much larger. At the State Contest at ' lilting the bend won Second Division from a field of eighteen contestants, and received many con- gratulations for outstanding accomplishment in only two years of work. Because of these two victories, the band received one plaque and each band member received two medals. The band at present consists of forty-four members, approximately two-thirds of whom are grade students. The band is supplemented by a group of white-satin uniformed baton twirlers. The band competed in the District Contest at Heb- ron on April 19, but did not place as a winner this year. The annual spring concert was given on Hay 8th, and the pro- gram included, besides contest music, " Pavanne " by Gould and " The World Is Waiting for the Sunrise " . This year the band has more outstanding individuals than ever before. Both Clifford Jefforis and Warren Prince won first Division in the district and state solo and ensemble contest in B flat clarinet solo, and likewise Betty Josephson in piano. The clarinet quartet, consisting of Clifford Jefforis, Warren Prince, Alverissa Fanpel, and Jack Walley also won first in the district and state contests. All state contest winners went to the National Regional Contest at Flint, Michigan. Lorraine Byman, National Champion harpist in Class " B " went to the National Regional because of two consecutive National wins. In this National Regional Contest, Clifford Jefforis won first division in Class C, Warren Prince, second, and the quartet, third. Lorraine Byman won first division in Class B as harpist. Other contest winners were Alfred Fabian and Dale Cobble, who both, won first Division in the District Junior Cornet Solo Contest and second in the state. Jack Walley, Edward Pavlecich, Herbert Walley, and Billy Martin also participated in the solo contest at Hobart. The Band has been ably and enthusiastically supported by the Band Boosters--an organization of interested persons in the community. Mr. Bruce Brubaker, director, has been with the Band for three years. - JUNIOR PLAY " The Blockhead, " a three-act comedy by Jules Amhurst, concerned a will--one of the strangest documents ever written. Imagine leaving a million dollars to the most stupid person in your family l But the uncle had good reasons! When the hero got the money, certainly through no effort of his own, his relatives nicknamed him " The Blockhead " . When one con- siders he actually gave his inheritance away first to a crack- pot inventor who never invented anything; second, to a poet who never wrote a poem; and third to a financier who wanted to " improve society " --when one finds he thanked his own cousin for firing him from his job, and then he was committed to an insane asylum which he thought was a summer resort — the title was explained 1 The cast of characters for the play follows: Justus Chamberlain, a bank clerk in his late twenties — --------------------- -Mike Kovalev Willibald Beck, a clerk in a book store about twenty-five Robert Zoller Gerhard Beck, an engineer in his late twenties — wassel Kronokwa Kurt Englehard, a lawyer in the early thirties, elegantly dressed- ---------------- -Andrew Garber Elizabeth Schirmer, tries to make herself attractive to the opposite sex- ------------- Donna Mansfield Mrs. Schirmer, Elizabeth ' s mother, highly emotional and very selfish- --------------- -Virginia Tanner Bohrmann, a judge’s assistant- -------- -Jesse Werner Judge Aelshchlager , the judge who reads the will — -Lucinda Benedict Doris Weigandi an American heiress rooming at Mrs. Schirmer ’ 3 - --------------- -Norma Jaster Lucy Hansel, Doris’s companion- -------- -Betty Glenn Rosa, the Schirmer maid- ----------- -Evelyn Clark , SENIOR PLAY " One Mad Night " , a mystery farce in three acts, was presented hy a cast of Seniors, May 21. The Entire play took place in " One Mad Night " and what a night 1 Don Cutter, a playwright, accompanied by Wing, his proverb-quoting Chinese valet, went to the lonely Cutter Mansion to complete his latest play. Don was astonished when he found the house tenanted by a number of very strange people, including " John Alden " , " Priscilla " , " Mr, Hyde " , and " Lady Macbeth. " They were lunatics, under the care of Dr. Bunn, whose home nearly had burned down; they were really quite harmless, but Don didn ' t know this. Among the inmates was Lucille, a beautiful girl with an amazing story of persecution and intrigue. Like a true Lochinvar, Don was just about to ride to her rescue when his fiancee and her mother put in their appearance with the colored maid Depression. Then everything happened — talking ghosts, screaming women, disappearing guests, and, for a climax, the appearance on the scene of an escaped murderer fleeing for his life. Don succeeded in rescuing the lovely Lucille from a sinister fate only after a series of thrilling, funny es- capades .

SOP HOmOPE ' We recognize your importance; 30 please sign here. rN 1 r r FRESHmflfl You’re leaving the green, but sign your name FAREWELL A little while before we leave this place We fain would linger ' mongst deserted halls Rememb ' ring each familiar, friendly face, Musing o ' er joys, we knew within these walls. A little while we ' d stop, to think once more Of the momentous day so long ago, When we as freshmen, first approached this door Scarce dreaming of how much we ' d some day know. A little while we fain would linger yet Recalling hours of victory so sweet. Yet blending with our pride a vague regret For those rare times our banner knew defeat. A little while before we call ' well done ' Our training for the tasks we have to meet. We ' d like to retrace school careers once more. And round out all the things left incomplete. A little while before we leave our school And teachers who have given us their best. We ' d like to prove our worth to carry out The principles of living they have stressed. A little while we ' d pause - and try to tell Just what we ' re feeling in our hearts today. A little while we ' d pause, then say - farewell 1 The hour has come 1 We must be on our way.
