One of the 87 Elkhart industries engaged in War production, the Miles Laboratories. glkhaftj like all America before the war, was a busy, self-centered town, little concerned with names like Novgorod, Palermo, and Tarawa. Today with the railways carrying eighty-seven essential war products to all fronts, the town is united in the feeling that we want to keep all the good things here: our tree-lined streets, and green parks where kids play in summer, our band concerts on Thursday nights, church bells, decency and friendliness.

Tom has known some of the boys in the senior gang for years: he knows some ot the incoming sophs only as new kids in the halls. He has played with the boys in cham- pionship battles or relaxed with them in friendly card games. He has worked with teachers on big projects and kidded with them in lighter moments: and he knows that his most important lessons have been the lessons ot human relationship.

These friendships are made in class- rooms or labs, in Working and plan- ning together, and in informal mo- ments.

Once we were young and unsophisticated sopho- mores just discovering our way around E. H. S. We kept our eyes open watching the upperclassmen: we watched what those upperclassmen did and copied what they said. We sophomore girls learned from the senior girls that simple clothes and a pleasing personality were the best way to become one of the gang. The sophomore boys learned from the older fellows that being smcoth was having manners, and at the same time having fun. We learned that one did not merely hurry down the hall: one "barreled". Things were not termed "swell", but "keen". "Chattanooga Choo-Choo" and "EImer's Tune" were THE songs to hum. We made mental notes of the upperclassmen-what they wore, what they did, what they said, how they looked, how they danced-and used them as models. ln every soph:more's mind, the prcrninent seniors were catalogued. We knew that the president of the Stu- dent Council was also captain of the football team, and that the editor of the Pennant Annual was a class officer. As we catalogued the seniors, we wondered if our own class officers might fill such important positions in the future. Those officers were: Iohn Longfellow, Ir., presi- dent: Robert Pickering, vice-president: Mary K. Stemm, secretary, Carrol Simmons, treasurer: Barbara Shelley and Thomas Iuday, social chairmen. Mrs. Ada Sickels and Mr. Boyle were chosen as sponsors. Planning the sophomore class party, "The Ioy-Iuice Iarnboree", and publishing the Sophomore Pennant, we found kids in our class who had talent. We discovered the kids who could decorate for a party, those who could put on a floor-show, and those who could write cute P sde ts 1-:be sol a d 1 day :clk wth th othe off Page TWef1fY'fW0 io Jerioua Jeniord, flue Cfadd of '44 had 0 owe features and good news-stories. We also learned early in our class activities which people We could depend on. In our sophomore year, we not only found our place in Elkhart High School, but each found his place in the class. Next year, as juniors, we tried to outdo every other junior class We tried to choose th tt' . e pre iest class rings. We tried to make "Ever Since Eve", with Beverly Miller and Bill Copenhaver playing the leadin r l th ' ' g o es, e cutest junior class play yet presented. We earned our money for the prom not only by selling tickets to the play, but also by handling the concessions at games so we could have the most outstanding junior prom in the history of E. H. S. Nearly three hundred juniors and seniors jived to the music of Charlie Rogers in the Athenian Ballroom of the Hotel Elkhart. W h h e c ose t e theme Arabian N1ghts" in order to make our decorations more unusual. To l d th ' ' ' ' ' ' ea us rough the first semester junior activities we elected Iohn Longfellow Ir resident: I 1 -I P Iames Ebersole, vice-president: Eileen Simons, secretary: Carrol Simmons, treasurer: Virginia Miceli and Thomas Iuda , soci 1 h ' ' y a c airmen. Since Mr. Boyle had left the faculty, Mr. Iordan was chosen as our new sponsor. For the second and most important semester the followin officers l , g were e ected: Iohn Longfellow, Ir., president: Thomas Iuday, vice-president: Carrol Simmons, secretary: Richard Hill, t ' E' ' ' ' reasurer, ileen Simons and Iames Ebersole, social chairmen. As juniors we indulged in all the fads of the year. The girls Wore club jackets and the boys had "butch" hair-cuts. We wore sweat socks to the "Sock Hop", jeans to the "Hayloft Hop", and formals O e o1 1 th gas shortage.

"Tuff", " 'nuff said", and "super" were big Words in our vocabu- lary. Moron jokes travelled down the second floor hall, the main drag of E. H. S. We were susceptible to any fad that came our way. Although We admired the seniors, We were somewhat critical. Everything the upperclassmen did Was hashed over by the juniors and We came to the conclusion that our senicr year Would be much better than theirs had been: We were going to put E. H. S. on the map, Our basketball, football, tennis, track, music, and publications would give Elkhart something to be proud of. We were going to have more student planned assemblies and pep sessions that would really keep up school spirit. In fact, we were so absorbed in our activities and dreams for the future that we hardly realized that school Was out and we were officially seniors.

The class of '44, once young and unsophisticated, be- comes the alumni of E. H. S.: college students, housewives, office girls, soldiers, sailors, workers--citizens of Your Town and Mine.

But these undaunted sophs did not let anything like a young flood stop them: they had the party in the school cafeteria March 26, 1943. The officers of this class Were: president, Bob Stackhouse: vice-president, Morris Clement: secretary, Mar- ilyn Kingp treasurer, Dick Hagans: and social chairmen, Mary Lou Niblock and Bob Weldy. These sophomores looked forward to the day when they would be the junior class of Elkhart High School. Their junior year was go- ing to be their big year with the class play, prom, and junior Pennant. Next year they could look down on a class of sophomores and not be so much in awe of seniors. Now their junior year has passed and the juniors are looking forward to next year when they will be the most important people in E.H.S. nv' t 'F . to ave a ig time in il: The busiest year for the class of '45 was climaxed by the junior-senior prom held at Hotel Elkhart May 27. Pat Munsch and Shirley Lewan were in charge of the decorations which created a South American atmosphere. Committee chairmen for the dance Were: Ioan Lickey and Marilyn King, refreshments: Bar- bara Sykes and lack Diley, music: Virginia Murphy and Suzanne Sellemeyer, publicity: and Virginia lenner, Bob Stackhouse, and Dick Hagans, entertainment. Charles Thulis was in charge of programs. The class play was another successful project of the junior class this year. Under the direction of Miss Ruth Agnew, "Charm Schoo1" was presented in the high school auditorium, March 31. Phyllis McLain, Dick Church, lack LeVan, Norma lean Treckelo, Bernard Rosen, Morris Clement, Virginia lenner, Phyllis Hall, and Tom Corson carried the leading roles. A special issue of the P ennant Weekly, published by an all-junior staff, was issued M Murphy Was editor-in-chief. arch 24.

March 31. The play, which was directed by Miss Ruth Agnew, was a three-act comedy written by Alice Duer Miller. A large audience showed their obvious enjoyment of the amusing lines and situations. The complications in the plot arose out of the inheritance of a girls' boarding school by a young automobile salesman, Austin Bevans. In spite of heartbreak, radical ideas on the part of Austin, and the decision of the heroine to run away from school, all the woes and worries of the characters were straight- ened out satisfactorily in the last act. The cast gave an excellent performance, and the stage sets were particularly effective. Committee chairmen and cochairmen for the play were: property, Nancy Wambaugh and Irene Lux: stagecraft, Dick Wiley and lim Scheuer: publicity, Roseanne Ball and Suzanne Sellemeyer: tickets, Margaret Bonfigliog programs, Shirley Lewan and Beverly Nye.

S., the sopho- mores have already made themselves known by their enthu- siasm at pep sessions, their cute females, and their eager desire to participate in school activities. Because they were new and unacquaintecl, the sophs did not organize as early in the fall as other classes. When they had thought carefully about whom they wished to choose as sponsors for their class, they elected Mrs. Fox and Mr. Woodruff. For class officers they chose Bob Brown as president: Gordon Anderson, vice-president: Pat Cullen, secretary: Margaret Doll, treasurer: and Harriet Holdeman and Bob Holderman, social chairmen. --- ive unclrecl of them, flue up an In order to bulge the treasury of the class of '46, the sopho- mores carried coke cases and sold ice cream bars at the LaPorte- Elkhart basketball game, December 30. A hundred-fifty plaid shirts attended the "Flannel Fling" Saturday, Ianuary 22 in the school cafeteria. Bob Bliss's band provided the music and Mildred Goard, Roberta Simmons, Pat Cullen, lim Troyer, and Bob Holderman gave a skit. A brief assembly advertising the party was given for sophomores the day before the party. The sophomores this year have set a precedent for many classes to come. They are already active in sports, clubs, and publications, in spite of struggles with geometry proofs and Latin translations. A vast amount of potential energy is stored in the class of '46. Tomorrow's club presidents, football and basketball stars, and the important people about school and about your town and mine will come from the class of '46, Skater's delight: warm fire . . . starry sky . . . smooth ice.

SK. 9 Life is a continual round of activity for Nancy. Iuniors are famous for joining clubs and Nan is no exception. All through the day and into the evening the school is alive With meetings, rehearsals, programs, parties and games. Officially these are known by the cold stiff term, "extra-curricular", but to the students, they rate first. There is no fun like that of belonging: of decor- ating for parties, of putting on plays, of earning money, of saying, With a certain pride, "Gee, l have a million things to do." Nancy, as an officer in many clubs, and a baton tvvirler in the band, is a Well-known part of this daily buzz. She has learned through all this club Work, what every- one should learn: that life outside of school, as Well as in school, is based on one thing . . . people learning to Work together and play together. Nancy ufalnbauglz, a fypicaf junior Page Fifty-three Price Fiftv-four goes shopping . . L. 04 juniorla Nar1cy's liie is full of fun: parties, places, people. She likes pretty clothes, cokes, Writing to friends in the service, slumber parties with her gang, and of course, clates. ,J ,fuzz of gun ln her social life, Nan has corn e to know our town as a place that offers a good time. She sees Elkhart as a good town to live in, and a town in which she can con- tinue to be happy with her family, her clubs and her friends. the . R. pr ms Page Ffyf The Pennant Weekly, clue to the newsprint shortage, was published only once every two weeks this year under the editor- ship of Bill Frink. However, it continued to keep the student body informed on school and war activities, including War bond and stamp sales, student morale, locations of high school students now in the armed forces. Credit must be given to the editorial staff and to Bob Stack- house, business manager: Suzanne Sellemeyer, advertising man- ager, and Ioan Lickey, circulation manager and their staffs who helped make the paper a successful journalistic and financial enterprise. Virginia Murphy was editor of the lunior Pennant and other special issues, including the Peanut, Basketball, Christmas, and Senior issues, were published during the school year.

Both the adver- tising and circulation staffs have shown an increase over former years: the total amount of advertising space sold was seventeen hundred dollars, while twelve hundred books were sold.

C.A., should learn to Work together for the good of their community, to be poised socially, and to discuss together the problems ot the club, as well as the problems ot the future. Every Week Girl Reserves go to help at the Elkhart General Hospital and to the ration board. At the hospital, the girls try to be youthful "Florence Nightin- gales." At the ration board, the G. R.'s tile and type governmental "red tape." Another Way in which the Girl Reserves serve others is by annually giving o: Christmas party for the negro children from the Booker T. Washington center. The social side of lite is tar from being slighted by the G. R.'s. Two spaghetti suppers before the games have been held. A Sadie Hawkin's party and a Valentine Tea were sponsored by the G. R.'s. At Christmas time, the G. R.'s and the Hi-Y's sang Christmas carols together. In the spring, as the last social gathering, the Girl Reserves had a Hobo Picnic. Officers for this year Were: Willa Allen, president: Virginia Murphy, tirst vice- president: Marcia Hile, second vice-presi- dent: Suzanne Sellemeyer, secretary: Dor- othy Doll, treasurer: Nancy Wambaugh, program chairman: Mary Lou Niblock, social chairman: Virginia Ienner, service chairman: Roseann Ball, publicity chair- man: Ruth Ann Sears, music chairman: Norma lean Treckelo, pianist: Betty Lou Speas, song leader: Miss Prusia, Girl Re- serve Secretary. lze i- U Club A I-li-Y club is an organization in a high school which unites boys who are vitally interested in Christian standards for personal living and for school life. It mobilizes their efforts to put into effective action Christian solutions to their prob- lerns. Some of the high spots in the past year of the Senior Hi-Y program were the Dime Line and the annual Father and Son Ban- quet. The Dime Line furnished money for the financing of a Christmas party for the less fortunate children. Toys, candy, fruit, and a program were given with the money. The Father and Son Banquet, usually held in February, is a time of fellowship which brings the father and son together. At this time, an award is given to two boys from the Iunior High Schools for leadership and character. It is the desire of the Elkhart Y. M. C. A. to provide cp- portunities for the development of char- acter and leadership qualities in these young men. For the past seven years this award has been given to the two boys who show the possibilities of becoming leaders. The last semester officers of the Hi-Y were president, Iohn Longfellow: vice- president, Tom Iuday: secretary, Iohn Ball: treasurer, Bill Frink: social chair- man, Bob Pickering: program chairman, Tom Artley. This semester's officers in- cluded president, Tom Iuday: vice-presi- dent, Irving Rosen: secretary, Richard Rish: treasurer, Lloyd Grove: social chair- man, Morris Clement: proqram chairman, lim Swihart.

On the Ball with the Assembly Committee Page Sixty Student Counci The only all-student organization in the Elkhart Senior High School is the Student Council. The purpose of this Council is to foster a spirit of self-government and establish high ideals of citizenship. Projects were carried on by committees. The stand- ing committees of the club are: the Traffic Committee, which has charge of enforcing hall traffic regulations: the Memorial Committee, which keeps the service men's memorial plaque up to date: and the Handbook Committee, whose members are edit- ing and publishing the school's handbook. Many of the entertaining assemblies the student body of the Elkhart Senior High School has enjoyed this year have been planned by the Student Council's Assembly Committee. The programs mentioned above include quiz programs, stamp sale and variety programs. An addition to the war program has been the service men's register. All the former students of the high school, who are now in the service, are asked to sign the register upon returning. From time to time, the high school office receives calls from clubs of the city, who want talent from the school for their meet- ings. The Student Council undertook to compile a student talent list which will be kept in the office at all times. In the first Council meeting of the year, a member introduced the idea of the activities ticket. After Weeks of investigation a four-page report has been turned over to the Council by the committee. This report has been referred to a faculty committee which will conduct a further investigation.

Certain projects of the Society have become not yearly ac- complishments but rather a tradition in the school. Most impor- tant of these is the used book sale. Also, at the beginning of each semester, Society members assist with registration of stu- dents in study halls. During the year, in an effort to promote citizenship, the Honor Society awarded an attendance banner to the homeroom having the highest percentage of attendance each six weeks' period. Also cards of congratulation Were given to students who were neither absent or tardy during the school year and to students who received three or more A's in solid subjects. Stu- dents who needed help were tutored. One of the most outstanding accomplishments of the Honor Society was the organization of the Elkhart High 'School War Finance Board, a group which has assumed all obligations in connection with the stamp and bond sales in the second semester in the senior high school. - Not only did the Honor Society give its service to the school. Members gave donations to the War Mother's Canteen, the Red Cross, and the War Chest. First semester officers: lim Ebersole, president: Mary K.

This organization is the only one in school which meets every day. At these meetings the program for the day is discussed and two operatcrs are assigned for each period. Besides operating the motion-picture projector, slide projectors and the opaque projectors, the boys take care ct our growing film library, screens and supplies. The Club is often called upon to furnish cperators for P.T.A.. Sunday Evening Club, night school classes and other organizations. Films ot a technical nature, for example those used in aeronautics or machine shop, are shown by this de- partment, not only to classes in the day-time but also to the night classes. The club has charge of making the song slides. The officers for the year are Bob Lake, president: Dick Manges, Vice-president: Dick Chilcote, secretary: Dick Wilsey, treasurer: Don Correll, student council: Mr. Likens, sponsor. lflalzera Club The Ushers Club does its part for E.H.S. The purpose of this club is to usher at all occasions of importance at school, such as football and basketball games, Iunior and Senior Plays, Back to School Night and other school func- tions. At football games, the boys keep the aisles clear and keep the students in their section of the stadium. During basketball season they seat the fans who have reserved seats. The Ushers also operate a check room in room 105. This semester, the club has a mem- bership of twenty-eight boys. Three officers are selected by the group. Last semester the officers Were Don Orcutt, president: Bob Stackhouse, vice-presi- dent: Ernest Yeater, secretary-treasurer. This semester the officers are Irving Rosen, president: Bob Stackhouse, vice- presidentg Dick Manqes, secretary- treasurer. "Check your coat, sir?" Stackhouse gives out with dope. They police the aisles at games. Page Sixty-three Page Sixty-tour dllon The ofiicers go into action The Art Club, despite a decrease in membership, has car- ried on a poster service which has been used by various groups in school. In the main hall, one will notice beaverboard panels on which is exhibited the Work of the art classes. Charles Wiley, Ray Sorenson and Frances Pesto's pictures were exhibited. In the study halls, oil paintings attract the eye of many students. The Art Club is responsible for all of this. The club is not an "all work and no play" organization. In November, the initiation party was held in the cafeteria. Each person wishing to beccme a member was blindfolded and had to draw a part of a picture. The astounding results were hung Craftsmen of the palette and brush. Brightening the windows with Christmas spirit tr ' alri and in the art room for a week. In Ianuary, an ice skating party was held at the St. Ioe rink. After skating tor awhile, the group went to Pat Gilbert's home for refreshments. Any person in high school who is interested in the Club obtain membership. Artistic talent is not necessary, but art appreciation is valuable. Pins, in the form of palettes, are worn by the members. The officers for this year were: president, Connie Polezoes: vice-president, Ruth Weaver: secretary, Dorothy Doll: treasurer. Verlin Berry: sergeant-at-arms, Dick Lang: social chairman, Pat Gilbert. Miss Cole is the sponsor of the club. unior akademy of Science The Iunior Academy of Science, sponsored by Miss Wag- oner and Mr. Adams, elected the following officers for this year: Peggy Cole, president: Marilyn Everts, vice-president: Phyllis Hall, secretary-treasurer. The club has a membership of approximately forty members. During this period, they are ex- pected to gain seventy-five points which will make them quali- fied members. The points are gained by attending meetings, serving on committees, and carrying on experiments. To maintain membership in this club, the members cannot be absent from any meeting without an explanation. This club is one of the few in high school with such a rule. The purpose of the Iunior Academy of Science is to stimulate interest along scientific lines through experiments and outside speakers. Each group takes at least one field trip depending on where their interests lie. The group who Worked on the Tulip Tree and Biology of Flight projects recently made a day trip to Chicago where they visited the Field Museum, the Aquarium, and other buildings. ' The project before the club at the present time is the Tree Survey. The task involved in this Survey is to identify, file, and determine the condition of all trees, from the sidewalk to the curb in our town. After this information is collected, the residents of Elkhart, if they wish, will be able to correct the faults of their trees through aid from Purdue University. There are many Iunior Academy of Science Clubs in the state of Indiana. The Elkhart club is among the highest ranking clubs in the state.

This club spon- sors and supports many school activities: however, most of the club-sponsored activities are closely allied with the high school athletic program. The annual spring dance for athletes Was held with the Blue Iackets assisting on May 13. "Blue Rain" was the theme of the dinner dance. Among the services which the Triple L's have rendered the past year was the annual Dime Line, for the sole purpose of obtaining money to aid in the caring of children With infan- tile paralysis. Concessions at basketball, football games and track meets have made oppor- tunities for the Triple L girls to serve the public, to earn money and to aid in definite school functions. Other activi- ties have been the Sophomore teas for incoming sophomore girls, and the sectional pep ses- sion for the game between Nap- panee and Elkhart. The officers of the Spring semester were: president, Car- rol Simmons: vice-president, Barbara Shelly: secretary, Hose- rnarie Nye: treasurer, Phyllis Hall: social chairman, Dorothy Doll: sergeant-at-arms, Marjorie Monger. Blue ackeia The Blue Iacket Club is spon- sored by Mr. Dean B. Smith, who helped an interested group of senior boys originate and organize the club last fall. Start- ing With thirteen members, the club adopted a constitution, chose a name, and planned a program based on service to the school. Only junior and senior boys are eligible to the club, and a high standard of moral and scholastic rating is required of applicants. Forty members have been initiated during the year. The club has served on the -Student Morale c o rn m i t t e e , helping to plan and carry out programs consisting of movies and general "sings." Members have sponsored the showing of sports movies and have assist- ed With inter-club athletic com- petition. The Blue Iackets also sponsored a successful waste- paper drive. Officers for the second se- mester: president, Glenn Banks: vice-president, Bill Borneman: secretary, Bob Pickering: treas- urer, Norman Parrner: parlia- mentarian, Bruce Sellers: social chairman, Norman Pedersen: program chairman, B e r n a r d Rosen: devotional chairman, lim lanes: sponsor, Mr. Smith.

To band accompaniment, the flag- twirlers, Nancy Wambaugh, Betty Wambaugh, and Norma Haven, twirl their brightly col- ored flags.

But Where sports are concerned, he knows that in E H S they rank very high: the school spirit rises or falls as the teams Win or lose. A sophomore catches this sports fever, and all the rest of his life he eagerly Watches the scores of all blue and White teams. Gordon sees that sports teach a guy a lot of things: to hold his temper: to abide by the rules: to keep on playing When the going is tough: to take victory as Well as defeat. At games, Where Gordon sees that at least half of the roaring crowd is rabid adult fans, he shares the toWn's enthusiasm for sports.

Sparta IOHN LONGFELLOW-Iohn, often called "the dean of In- diana coaches," added another sectional and another conference championship to bring his total to 18 championships in 15 years as our basketball coach, He has averaged 15 victories a year at E. H. S. RILEY IORDAN-Riley, known about school as "the ticket czar," has charge of all ticket sales for all athletic contests. With demands for tickets almost always exceeding the capacity, he had the difficult task of determining to whom the premium ducats were to go. In this, as well as the management of the Athletic Department's finances, he is thorough, resourceful, and efficient. CHELSEA BOONE-Without "Chelse," the E. H. S. sports scene would be incomplete. "Chelse," regarded as the Connie Mack of E. H. S. athletics, is the holder of 19 sectional track vic- tories in 21 years at our school, an unequaled record. TONY CAMPANOGLI-"Camp" is the man behind the scenes out at Rice Field. He steadily plugs away strengthening the for- ward wall of the football squad. His is a position without much glory, but with much responsibility. The line makes the team, and a line coach like "Camp" is invaluable. HARRISON BERKEY-For the second year, "Berk" conscien- tiously filled the head football coaching position left vacant by Don Veller. Despite hours of endless work and planning, Lady Luck did not smile on our team this year: We join all loyal sport fans in wishing "Kotch" better breaks in the future. ROBERT EHRSAM-If Bob's championship reserve basket- ball teams are any measure of his coaching ability, one can be sure of a winning future for baseball at E. H. S. Bob has the knowledge of athletics and ability to get along with the boys, which will carry him a long way in the sports field. RAYMOND SORENSON-"Hap" produced another confer- ence championship squad last fall for his third championship in eight seasons at E. H. S. His ability as a producer of champions shows up well in that the Blazer Racqueteers haven't lost a con- ference match since the fall of 1941. Standing: Mr. Jordan, Coaches Campanoqli and Ehrsam. Sitting: Coaches Lonqfellow, Boone, Berkey, and Sorenson. Page Ninety three e Jilue Blazer The 1943 Elkhart High School Blue Blazer foct- ball team traveled a rough and difficult road last fall.

They won only one game out of nine, but they gave each team they played one of the toughest battles of the season. Also, it may be well to add that prac- tically every team in the E. N. I. H. S. C. boasted a 1943 squad which was rated tough enough to take conference honors. The Blazer's only win of the season was ac- quired in the opener against Vocational High School of Chicago, 7 to 6. Gordon Stock scored the touch- down and Captain Bruce Sellers kicked the extra point for the victory. In the second game, the Blazers lost to Fort Wayne Central, 7 to 0. Our boys came close to scor- ing twice, but couldn't put the ball over the goal- line. They really played a fighting ball game, but just couldn't come out on top. The third game marked the conference debut cf the Blazers. LaPorte made sure early in the game that Elkhart Wouldn't have a victory to celebrate, as the Slicers scored 19 points in the first quarter. The final score was 30 to 13, the boys putting on a rally of 13 points in the last quarter, but to no avail. Page Nlneiy-four Anderson, R.: Belt, I.: Bolton, Bradley, P. Upper left: Man from Mars?

Uardiiy qua South Bend Riley came to Rice Field and walked away with a victory, 27 to 2. Elkhart showed considerable improvement and saved themselves from a shutout in the last quarter when Sellers fell on the ball to score a safety. The Mishawaka game was heralded as the Blazer's finest showing of the season. The Maroons, riding near the top of the conference pile, found that Elkhart Wasn't the easy victory they had expected. A "moral victory" was scored as our boys scared the Mishawaka Maroons, 13 to 0. The Blazers' last home game found Michigan City on the local gridiron. The Red Devils won, 24 to B, as experience again proved to be the winning factor. Goshen, boasting their best team in the history of the school, made the Blue Blazers their victims, 25 to U. The boys in blue really played their hearts out in the first half as they held the The "Four Horsemen"-"Bronc" Bradley, "Wild Bill" Elliott, "Hattie" Meyer lake D ley Redskins to one touchdown. But Goshen took advantage of Blazer errors in the second half to go on to win. Our team continued to improve every week, but still couldn't seem to hold out in the last half for a victory. Against Fort Wayne North Side, Elkhart scored first and was tied with the Redskins, 6 to 6, at the end of the first quarter. However, they lost the game in the last quarter, 19 to 6. E1khart's last game was the most thrilling of the year. Al- though South Bend Central dropped the Blazers, 20 to 13, the score does not tell the story. The Blazers rallied in the third quar- ter to come within one point of the Bears, 14 to 13. Central scored a touchdown in the final period to pull away, but not until the Blazers had threatened a third score and had had one called back. Page Ninety five ooibafl The Central game concluded a disap- pointing year for Elkhart High School in football, but it happens to every school in every sport at one time or another. Maybe, this fall, our team won't be hit so hard by graduation and service calls. Then the school will be able to enjoy an- other of the successful football seasons, of which we have had many. However, despite a disappointing year, much credit is due to the coaches and boys who "stuck it out" during the sea- son. It is as hard if not harder to play on a losing, rather than a winning team. Many losing teams "b1ow up" as the sea- son progresses. But our 1943 Blazers tight- ened their belts and Went down fighting. It was an obvious fact that the team im- proved steadily throughout the season. If this improvement has been carried through spring practice to this fall, one may ex- pect greater things of the Blazers in '44.

Page Nfnefy-seven 1943-'44 Conference and Seciiona The Blue Blazers of 1943-44 opened one school's history by downing three stubborn Middlebury, 47 to 35, 39 to 38, and 32 to 28, The Blazers then stepped into a double of the most successful seasons in the county quintets, Bristol, Iirntown, and respectively. header with bigger school competition and won both contests. They dropped Washington of South Bend, 37 to 26, and Goshen, 39 to 25. The undefeated boys in blue made it six straight by traveling downstate to defeat Greensburg, 44 to 35, in a featured intersectional contest. Elkhart suffered their first defeat at the Hammond Invitational Tournament from the rangy Hammond cagers, 38 to 49. Defeat was eased by a victory four hours later as the boys stopped Iefferson of Lafayette, 46 to 45, in a thrilling overtime game. Only two days later, LaPorte was ltanded their first conference defeat, 43 to 26, by the Blazers. Michigan City and Warsaw fell before the blue tide, 60 to 31, and 49 to 31, respectively, as the Blazers played two of their best games of the season. The following week, our team drop- ped the Mishawaka Cavemen from the conference race, 39 to 28. Next came the most talked about game of the year. The Blazers edged Riley of South Bend, 5 to 4, in a game of "basketstall." The Riley team refused to attempt to score and the Blazers, as long as they held their one point lead, refused to pull out their defense. The game drew nationwide attention as all of the country's leading newspapers carried the story. Two more conference opponents then extended the league-leading Blazers.

Controlling the backboards, Fcrt Wayne Central handed our boys their second defeat of the season, 41 to 26, in a state featured contest. Another mark was scratched in the black book as South Bend Central gave the Blazers their only conference defeat of the season,j32 to 27. Goshen again became the victim, 30 to 22, as their special "Blazer stopping" defense failed to stop the Blazers. The final game of the season came as a suitable climax. The conference title rested upon the outcome of this game. E. H. S. came through to drop John Adams of South Bend, 41 to 29, in the jam-packed Adams auditorium. Upper left: Alter the sectional!

The Blaz- ers again showed up well under pressure by winning, 41 to 30. E. H. S. made five successive wins over Goshen, with a 31 to 26 score, to win the sectional title for the second straight year. Our team was finally dropped out of the tourney by an undefeated Culver team, 34 to 23, in the afternoon game of the regional. The final recapitulation shows that the Elk- hart High School Blue Blazers of 1943-1944 won 20 out of 24 games for a percentage of .833, the second highest in the history of the school. The team copped the conference crown for the sixth time in fifteen years of its existence and the sectional crown for the fifth time in the last eight years. Quoting Coach lohn Longfellow, "This year's schedule was probably the toughest one a Blazer team has ever faced." The schedule inning JZe.4erue.4 included seven sectional winners, one of the four state finalists, the defending conference and the defending state champions, several teams that were listed among the "big ten" throughout the season, along with several undefeated teams. A tough sched- ule, indeed. Dick Hill was voted most valuable by his teammates at the annual banquet and Iohnnie Longfellow was voted honorary captain of the double champion Blazers. However, it was not in- dividual performances as much as the brilliant teamwork dis- played by the 1943-1944 Blazers that carried them through a suc- cessful season. ive guiure romide The E. H. S. reserve basketball team, composed entirely of sophomores and freshmen, had a very successful season. Coach Bob Ehrsam's Shortfellows won 13 and lost only 3, two of which were by one point. Tom Kern was the team's high scorer, con- necting for 46 field goals and 19 free throws for lll points. Kern was also the team's free throw champion. Other members of the team making good showings were Leo Hoffman, Russ William- son, Chuck Darling, Roger Schultz, Chuck Walker, and Dick Brown. This squad of boys should provide Coach Longfellow's varsity squad with some valuable material next year. Junior A's, alias "The Swedes," Interclass Champs. Varsity Reserves: Future Champs of E. H.

H, S. when Coach Raymond C"Hap"J Soren- sen's Blue Blazer tennis squad captured its second consecutive Northern Indiana High School Conference title. This Win marked the third league championship annexed by E. H. S. netters in Coach Sorensen's career as tennis mentor, which started with a league title in 1935. With the regular season schedule of the Eastern division con- ference reduced to a one-day tournament due to transportation difficulties, the Blazer netters won the No. 2 and No. 3 singles flights, placed a man in the finals of the No. l singles flight, and added one tally in the doubles division to top a field of six teams with nine points, thereby earning the right to meet the West division champ. Captain lim Ebersole, only senior member of the squad, and Page One Hundred Two Bill Borneman, a junior, advanced through three matches to cap- ture the No. 2 and No. 3 singles championships. Sophomore Bob Bugh chalked up two Wins in the No. 1 singles bracket before bowing to Roger Schofield of Michigan City in the finals. In the doubles event Charley Walker and Elmer Denlinger triumphed in one match before being defeated. Taking advantage of the chance to retain the conference crown, the Sorensenmen Walloped Western division champion Washington of East Chicago, 4-1, in the East-West playoff at Rice Field on October 18. Playing a regulation match with three singles and two doubles events, Bugh, Ebersole, and Borneman won the singles' flights and the two doubles teams split. Walker and Denlinger captured the No. 1 doubles match: Washington gained its only point as the visiting No. 2 doubles team defeated Charley Schwartz and Dick Rish of Elkhart. veteran :Tiara face the oonemen Charlie Gordon, in the high jump, and the half-mile relay team climaxed the none-too-successful 1943 season by placing in the state finals at Indianapolis. The Relay team was composed of Dick Treckelo, Corky Stock, Iohnnie Longfellow, and Henry Crussemeyer. The 1943 squad won only one dual meet and lost the sectional to Goshen by one-half point. The leading scorers were Charlie Gordon, lohn Longfellow, lim Foster, and Bruce Sellers, in that order, all of whom returned for the 1944 season. Greater things were seen for the 1944 season as the thinlies wal- loped South Bend Central in the underclass meet, 59 to 50. The present season opened March 26 with a surprise third in a Hexagonal Meet in the Notre Dame fieldhouse. Hammond won with 53 points, North Side of Fort Wayne took second place With 51W points, Elkhart, third with 29, followed by South Bend Central, Mishawaka and South Bend Iohn Adams.

Boone's 1943 cross country team ended the fall season with a record of six wins and three losses and added a fourth place in the Northern Indiana Conference meet. Opening with two meets at South Bend's School Field, the Blue Streaks first conquered Central's Bears, 22 to 35, and fol- lowed up with a close decision over Riley. The Boonemen scored their second defeat over South Bend Central, this time on the two-mile course at Rice Field, 20 to 39, before being handed their first defeat at Ft. Wayne by state charnpicn North Side High, 39 to 17. Getting back to their winning style, the E. H. S. runners added their fourth Victory by defeating Goshen, 26 to 29. With the four remaining meets being held at Bice Field, Coach Boone's squad chalked up two more victories over Go- Page One Hundred Four shen, but bowed to Riley and Ft. Wayne North Side. Although having previously defeated the South Bend squad, the Streaks were edged by the Wildcats, 27 to 28. Goshen fell before the blue runners, 26 to 29, duplicating the score of the previous meet at Goshen, but North Side dealt Elkhart its third defeat, 20 to 38. In the season final the Blue Streaks triumphed over Goshen, 27 to 28, to score their third victory over the county seat rivals. Competing in the Northern Indiana High School Conference meet, which was held at the Erskine Country Club near South Bend, Elkhart placed fourth in a field of ten teams. The most consistent scorers for the local runners were Cap- tain Charles Gcrdon, Captain-elect Dick Stutsman, Dick Wylie, lim Swihart, Ierry Flora, Bill Bohs, Bill Copenhaver, and Bob Reafsnyder, all of Whom were letter Winners. Captain Gordon led Elkhart scoring by pacing the Streaks in most of the meets, but was followed closely by Captain-elect Stutsman. oofcierf an eta Show p we!! on iamon The spring edition of the 1944 E. H. S. baseball team hcped to place Well in the standings of the E. N. I. H. S. C. at the con- clusion of the season. The Blazers based their hope on eight re- turning lettermen and their new coach, Bob Ehrsam. However, gone from the ranks of the boys in blue and gray Were a number of outstanding boys. Lost by graduation were Frank Holloway, a .400 hitter, and the battery, Captain Ned Kreps and Merle Timmons. To fill the spiked shoes left vacant by these three, Bob Primivera and lack Witmer alternated at the right field spot with Bob Ervin, Bruce Sellers, and lim Swarts holding down the mound job. Bed Weldy and Art Brickman took over the back- stop chores. Opening outdoor practice on April 5, Coach Ehrsam found a large number of veterans plus a few rookies on the squad. Veterans who returned to their former positions, other than those already mentioned, were Bob Pickering, first-baseman: Glenn Banks, fast-moving shortstop: Dick Brown, up and coming handler of third base: Ronald Stump, following in his brother's shoes in left field: plus two especially outstanding boys, lim Talbot in center field and Vern Atwater at second base. Several new baseball aspirants, of whom Dale Chaffee, Dick Brown, and Paul Verhagen appeared to be the most promising, were expected to contribute largely to the Blazer cause. These three things, returning veterans, promising rookies, and the new coach, Bob Ehrsam, were the basis of championship hopes for the Baseball Blazers.

The fighting lad in this poster is telling the folks back home: "If you will supply us with what it takes to win this war, we'll clean the mess up in a hurry!" That's fair enough! And hasn't someone said that an army travels on its stomach? Well, that's where the Miles Laboratories of Elkhart come in. We're not equipped to build heavy mechanical gad- gets, but our laboratories are ideally suited for packaging Army Rations. For packaging soluble coffee, for instance, -the kind that gives new heart to a fighting man out there in the jungles. By working closely with the U. S. Army Quar- termaster Corps, we at Miles are doing all we can to make that boy you know, from down the street, "the best fed soldier in the world." Many an E. H. S. alumnus is hard at work these days, patriotically helping us to turn out these Army Rations. Though their work is far from the battlefield, they are help- ing to turn the tide against Hitler and Hirohito, just the same. They are also enabling us to turn out those famous products sold in drug stores everywhere, in time of war and peace: Alka-Seltzer and ONE-A-DAY Cbrandl Vitamins. MILES LABORATORIES, INC.

LaSalle with his followers paddled from Lake Michigan in the month of December 1671 to the place South Bend is now located, and from there carried canoes westerly about nine miles to a stream which floated their canoes to the Wabash and Mississippi Rivers. Do not enter a canoe in deep water, unless you are able to swim. Every canoeist should realize that sometime or other he is going to upset. After you know how to swim you will enjoy canoeing and boating much more on our many lakes and streams in this district.
