This is the story of a home town
. . . of the people who live and
laugh and Work here: of the
boys and girls Who dream and
dance and go to school here-
the story of an ordinary town,
seen through the eyes of three
One of the 87 Elkhart
industries engaged in
War production, the
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.

The Commodore whizzes through
A part of the beauty cf
Elkhart is its winding riv-
ers and beautiful arched
bridges, like this one on
3 5Ch00lJ, reflecting the town,
combine the new and the old. In this old red brick building
a most progressive high school, With an up-to-date curricu-
lum, offers the latest courses: aeron
blue-print reading: and supplies the most modern equipment
autics, radio English,
available in classrooms, practice rooms, labs and shops. And
to these familiar halls, students Who have complained most
loudly about the faults of our school, return, on vacations or
furloughs, With the deep thrill of home-coming.
We own harps, vibraphones

We show movies and slides
We record our own radio programs.

For twelve years, school has been the main interest in
'l'om's lite. Now as he faces graduation, he looks back on
a long stretch of lessons, books, assignments: from "I see
the cat" to today's stiitest chem experiment.
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
Teachers and classmates, pals and acquaintances, dates
and underclassmen . . . these are the most important part
oi school to . . .

wor to keep up that high scholastic rating, Tom still iinds
time tor his ' ' '
gang and his girl. On Friday nights after the rac-
tices and the game of the week are over, Tom indulges in a coke
or a game oi ping-pong at the "lar",
Looking at our town, Tom sees that it is a place where people
count: big important people, and little people too. He sees that
there are opportunities for jobs, that our busy men are not too
busy for civic affairs or church work. He knows and likes the
people oi Your Town and Mine, and sees them as the kind he
will always want to know.

Sen ior .History
We of the class of '44 have not always been smooth
seniors. 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

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

to the prom. "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.

school to a war job . . . ordering announcements . . . seeing our varsity play

In the fall, when we elected the Iune officers, Thomas Iuday, Willa Allen,
Eileen Simons, Barbara Shelley, Ioan Denton and Thomas Artley, we realized
that many of our class members would go into the service before graduation.
Now, as We line up for the last time as a class to receive our diplomas, we
miss those fellows who are now in the Air Corps, the V-12, the Marines, the
Army and the Navy. 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.

Last year as sophomores, the class of '45
was washed out of Island Park where they
had planned to have a class picnic. 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.
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

e funior Play
The junior class play, "Charm School," was presented in
the high school auditorium at 8:00 p. m. 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. Norman Pedersen was stage manager.

Besides these activities as an organized class, juniors have played
an important part in all the activities of the school. They have served
on the Threshold staff, the Weekly staff, on Student Council committees,
morale committees, and pep session programs. In music and athletics,
too, the juniors play important roles, so that as seniors next
will be prepared to take their rightful place as leaders of the school,
and someday to find their niche in your town and mine.

CLASS OF '46
Although they are the youngest class in E. H. 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

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
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,

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

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

In October, ten members of the senior class were elected to
publish the 1944 Pennant Annual. Through scenes of the lives
of three typical students, we have attempted to portray in this
yearbook pictorially "the people and places, streets and schools,
homes and industries of Your Town and Mine." 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.

The Girl Reserve club, with a working
membership of sixty, tries to develop a
Well-rounded personality in its members.
Girl Reserves, as junior members of the
Y. W. 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.

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.

afional Honor ocieig
The National Honor Society, attempting to fulfill their object
of creating an enthusiasm for scholarship, stimulating a desire
to render service, promoting Worthy leadership, and encouraging
the development of character in the pupils of Elkhart High School,
added another year of service to the school since its organiza-
tion in the spring of 1940.
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.

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

obtain membership. Artistic talent is not necessary, but art
appreciation is valuable. Pins, in the form of palettes, are worn
by the members.

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. State officers have been elected from the Elk-
hart Iunior Academy many times.

sors and supports many school
activities: however, most of the

closely allied with the high
school athletic program.

"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.

Besides daily rehearsals and preparation for District Chorus at the South
Bend Teachers' Association, the group had fun. They enjoyed a hay-ride party
in November, refreshments being served at Clarys Miller's.
On December 16, Mr. Gowdy, who was awaiting his call from the Navy,
presented the choir in a Christmas concert. Soloists were Norma lean Eckstein,
Clarys Miller, Charles Gordon, and Mary Samuel. The choir also participated
in the Christmas Assembly broadcast.
The choir members felt Mr. Gowdy's leaving keenly: each one felt that he
had lost a friend. Mrs. W. R. Matthews held rehearsals until Mr. O. Lansing
Lynn, the new director, came. Mr. Lynn assumed his duties in lanuary, and
soon had the choir activities running smoothly.

At the head of the marching band struts the drum majors, Betty Duesler and Shirley
Lewan, associate. They are recognizable by their tall, plumed hats and their high-stepping
feet. At the half of the football and basketball games, two other groups of girls combine
pulchritude and talent in entertaining the sports-fans. To band accompaniment, the flag-
twirlers, Nancy Wambaugh, Betty Wambaugh, and Norma Haven, twirl their brightly col-
ored flags. Geneva Whitfield, Mary Ellen Thompson, and Iune Mossey twirl their batons
for the entertainment of the crowd. These groups of hard-working girls add zip and color
to the band.
When hard-workers are mentioned, the baggage boys should be named. They are Mor-
ris Mills, Eugene Mann, and Elmer Denlinger. The duty of the baggage boys is to move
equipment, set up stage and assist the band and orchestra in every way possible. A lot of

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.

e Jilue Blazer
The 1943 Elkhart High School Blue Blazer foct-
ball team traveled a rough and difficult road last
fall. Coach Berkey found himself faced with one of
th.e greenest squads in the school's history, due to
the graduation or loss to the service of all except
cne of the leading sixteen players on the 1942 squad.
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
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.

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
Page Ninety five
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.

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
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
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.

The boys edged out North Side of Fort
Vxfayne and Nappanee, 34 to 33, and
37 to 35, respectively.
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.

found the long awaited tourney "natural",
Elkhart vs. twice-beaten Middlebury. 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
Quoting Coach lohn Longfellow, "This year's
schedule was probably the toughest one a
Blazer team has ever faced." The schedule
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-
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-
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.

Another conference championship was added to the 1943-44
athletic records of E. 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

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.

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.

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,

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.

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-
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.

WE'RE DOING IT, SOLDIER!
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.

The canoe's origin dates back to the dawn of civilization and was the first means of traveling the
waterways. lt has played an amazing part in the discovery of remote places on earth, more than any
other factor. 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.

-No gas . . . no tires
. . . no butter and even no cuffs on
our trousers. But who cares! Our
blood goes into banks . . . our money
into bonds . . . and our fathers and
brothers go to war. We go to school.
We Work and in spite of Tojo and
Hitler, We laugh and play. Tomor-
row We go to War. Today the flowers
are out . . . so is our annual. Here is
the record of our year at Elkhart
High School . . . that year of the
Italian beach heads, Tarawa, the
Marshalls, Burma and the feverish
preparations for the European inva-
sion. Such a year of Work, play and
sacrifices had to be recorded. Our
engraver helped us immeasurably.
