Any student who graduates without having made at least one faculty friend has missed the best part of his education: he has failed toisee that learn' ing is something bigger than books. I For some students, this friend is Miss Cole, a gracious personality who for years has been a culf tural influence in Elkhart High School. When teachers are like her, the spirit of inspiration and achievement prevails in classes. X e X XRHM '32 A 1 2 ' ,f ,,.,.,.,Q Qu , Q r saw ,, Wg, X' ,mx- fw -mf .- . 223 ..: 'gs Q ,..f ,uf 3 P JP!

Cfafiff of AOLJ LCICL . . . "Last name, first" . . . thafs the way we came into this school, and that's the way we line up for our sheep- skins, as we leave the class of 19446. Twelve long years ago, taking a nap meant resting on our little kindergarden rugs instead of snatching a snooze in study hall and classes. Since those carefree days we have come a long, long way, we have changed schools, changed in habits and ideas, changed in physical sizes and appearance, we have lost old friends and made new ones. Yet when the class of '46 graduates, many of us will have gone to school together for twelve or thirteen years. The last three of these years we have spent together as' an organized class in the halls of this big, rambling, active place-the Elkhart High School. Wllhe public schools are, getting awfully publicf' teachers said in the fall of '43, when some 600 of us came in wandering and wondering, however, we eventually convinced them that we were not so bad and they decided to let us stay. So we organized with the help of our good friend Mrs. Fox, who has stuck faithfully by us ever since and lVlr. G. Wioodruff. We elected Bob Brown as president, and getting into a rut which for once was a good one, kept him there until he finished his duties on January 25, 1946. Gordan Anderson, an all-around guy, was our vice-president, Pat Cullen, secretary, Margaret Doll, treasurer, and Harriet Holdeman and Bob Holder- man, social chairmen. VVe felt that school would be a pretty dull place just studying, so we held our first party "The Flannel Fling" Eighteen in the school cafeteria. Natch, we wore the latest style: plaid shirts. All in all, we were gradually getting to feel that we were part of the school, yelling at games, loafing in halls, taking part in things. We struggled through our Sophomore year with such things as geometry, biology, Latin. "Well, we made itn, we said to ourselves as the school year ended. During the summer We held a picnic at lVlcNaughton Park. ln spite of the fact that many of the class did not come, we had a good time. Swarts and Primavera still boast about the baseball game. Then came the month of September and school. We were juniors, in grade school we had dreamed of being important high school kids and now we felt sure we were, we really belonged. We joined everything, we helped run everything. Didn't that swell class jewelry prove that we were it? As Juniors we kept the same sponso1's and chose the following students to take the lead in our activities: President, Bob Brown, vice-president, Kenneth Ingram: secretary, Byron Haines, treasurer, Margaret Doll, social chairmen, By the I Pat Cullen and Bob Holderman. , time we were organized we were feeling our oats, we were the best class E. H. S. had ever seen, we l admitted freely. Look us over, in athletics there were Brown, Bugh, Hoffman, Primavera, Swartsg in music, Bliss, Ingram, Anderson, Higgasong in dramatics and radio, Simmons, Estes, Holdermang publications, Troyer, Thompson, Cullen, Cadman, Black, Club activities, Doll, Bilancio, Couker-the juniors were-well, how could the school get along without us ? We realized that we were a good class, which we had always secretly known, and we knew we had talent, not just talent, but good talent, so we got a brainy idea. We would put on a variety show, which would display our talent. We devoted -considerable time to it and suc- cessfully presented "The Junior Follies of 1945" on March 8. Another big event of the year was our class play uJunior Missw, a three-act comedy given on April 13. That our class had good talent was proved in this pro- duction given on April 13. Then came May the month for the Junior-Senior prom, '4Celestial Balln. This was the other big event of the year. We worked, we planned, we devoted a lot of time to the prom and on May 26 all our weeks of discuss- ing what to wear who was datinff whom where we'd gobafterward came to a climax. D , Even though we felt that we were grown up, the Seniors lld " l'ttl b't,'.S ' t' t d ' iziinimr Lblasgllbiilityl "TheIEl3iat's tlfiiigrlixflflq iii: liijlgia gcalii silly time. Weill never fOl'g8t Cullen as 'fthe woman who paysw 1n the Truth And Consequences skit. But we burned that mid-night oil on Spanish, on those fsmellyj source themes, on outlines, notebooks, physics, tests, reports. Somehow most of us got through but there were manv casualties. As we watched the senior day exercises for the '45 class, we looked up to the seniors with admiration, dream- ing of the day when we would be doing the same thing, walking down the aisle, two by two. Now we were the seniors, the upper classmen. It had taken us twelve years of giving and taking, losing and learning, to achieve our goal. Our numbers had gradu- ally diminishedg some have moved away or taken jobs and quite a number of our boys have left to enter some branch of the service. Some have quit school for jobs. But we were still a strong well organized class' in Sep- tember. As we enrolled, the girls went to 220 and the boys to 320. That -in itself was a thrill: to be in Senior homeroom. As underclassmen, we were organized together but now were divided into January and June groups. At the first meeting of the January seniors, officers were elected. Bob Brown was chosen once more as presi- dent, Sam Miller, vice-president, Verlane Reber, treasurer, Joyce King, secretary, Betty Neff and Charles Pease, social chairmen. This class, eighty in number- finshed their activities with a party senior day. Some of them left for college or a job and some of them entered the service, but many of them stayed for the second semester with the rest of us in the June class. This June class was headed by the following officers: president, Tony Lambog vice-president, Bob Primaverag treasurer, Margaret Doll, secretary, Gloria Bilanciog social chairmen, Jim Swarts and Pat Cullen. As we got back into the general swing of school, some of us were members of the National Honor Society, some were in Student Council and some were members of the E. Y. R. C. Council. Our senior class play, :'Headed For Edenn, was pre- sented November 9. The usual Prom, Banquet, Baccalaureate, and Alumni reception closed our senior festivities. And so, on June 6, we will line up for the last time. "Last name, firstn. Moving slowly along, two by two, to get our diplomas, we recall these last three years. Certain scenes and people and events stand out . . . and as we think of these things, we feel a little sadness knowing that a good time has come to an end and that the class of '46, although scattered, will always be part of the school as the school will be part of us. Those senior officers and sponsors: Mrs. Fox, Tony Lambo, Margaret Doll, Bob Primavera, Betty Neff, Sam Miller, Joyce King, Chuck Pease, Gloria Bilancio, Mr. Jordan., Pat Cullen., and Verlaine Reber.

YOUNG, VIVIAN General Thirty-two The composer and author of the new school song pose with the choir jhode loecia, ago . . . Of course, we wouldn't want the faculty to suspect it, but those special days and those special programs are what we really live for. Some of these are regularly planned days, some are un- usual, some are traditional. But whatever they are, these oc- casions are very welcome, not only because they offer a change from the regular routine, but also for the excitement of the day itself. A very special day was the occasion when We adopted our new school loyalty song. With words by Geraldine Shank, a graduate, and music by Alice Rhodes, a student, "To Elkhart Highn was accepted unanimously by the student body at an assembly for that purpose. Seniors especially will remember Senior Day with its color- ful clothes and flowers, the march down the aisle to "Pomp and Circumstancell, and the program presented at that time. And College Day, too, when we talked personally to repre- sentatives of many universities and colleges, affected the lives of many of us. Because they bring a special thrill, those days are the ones which we look back to, the ones which we will always re- member. ' Dope on. DCPIIIHU, from hir. Umlbright Thirty-Ihree ..n. .

Senior day skit DEPAUW ,CL 1947 JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY Although in our Sophomore year we were slow in organizing, we chose: President, Tom Armstrong, Vice President, Jean Kreighbaum, Secretary, Pat Korn, Treasurer, Bob Dillon, and Social Chairmen, Richard Berlick and Janeth McLaughlin, to lead us in our first year of high school. Our first party was held on May 14, in the gym. "May Maneuversi' was the title and the party followed late spring traditions of May poles, flowers, and games. The committee chairmen were: Diana Voras, decorations, Delores Lieberenz, refreshments, Janeth McLaughlin, entertainment, and Pete Fleming, pub- licity. Although we enjoyed our sophomore year in many ways, the junior year is one of the most delightful of the three years, the discomfort and strangeness of the sophomore year a1'e behind us, we begin to join clubs and take part in extra-curricular activities, we became acquainted fespecially, our feminine membersl with upper-classmen, we begin to feel at home in E.H.S. The juniors look forward to new experiences in this year carrying with them their traditions, the class play, class jewelry and the prom. Then, too, there is that joy in looking forward to the spring. We won't be looking enviously at the prom-goers, we'll be among them. Yes, the junior year is a grand year. The junior officers elected for the year were: Presi- dent, Tom Armstrong, Vice President, Don Fuller, Secretary, Jean Kreighbaum, Treasurer, Bob Dillon, and Social Chairman, Nancy Ek and Henry Denman. Class sponsors are Mrs. Sickels and Mr. Hart. The first activity after the elections was the class party, held November 3, 1945. Nancy Ek appointed Janeth McLaughlin as chairman of entertaimnent. A Sadie Hawkins Day theme was carried out and prizes were given for the best costumes.

The class Sponsors are Mrs. Sickels and Mr. Hart. bands, made up of three clubs, played during the evening. On February 14, 1946, the class presented the second annual Junior Follies. Rita Holtz was ap- pointed chairman, with Pat Korn assistant. One attraction of the Follies was a sixteen girl chorus which presented two numbers. A play entitled "It Will Be All Right on the Nightf, was enacted by nine boys. Other numbers included a tap dance, a reading, two piano solos, a violin solo, impersonations, a boys' orchestra, directed by Henry Denman, furnished music before the curtain rose. On April 12, 1946, the junior class presented the play "Come Rain Or Shine.', This comedy, unfolding a drama was presented to the audience under the direc- tion of Miss Ruth Agnew, with Janeth McLaughlin, Marilyn Rish, Nancy Ek, Phil Lux, Pete Fleming, Henry Denman and Tom Brubaker in the leading roles. Selling at football and basketball games, and giv- ing the Junior Follies and presenting the class play, enabled the class to entertain the seniors at the prom on the night of May 18, in the Athenian Ballroom of the Hotel Elkhart. The theme for the prom was en- titled 6'Underwater Fantasyn, and Jimmy Wilbur and his orchestra played for dancing from 8:30 to 12:30. The following committees made the evening a success: Decorations, Jean Wright and Rosemary Clark, en- tertainment, Janeth McLaughlin, publicity, Pete Flem- ing, tickets, Bob Dillon and Carolyn Rowe, flowers, Jean Kreighbaum, programs and invitations, Betty Wambaugh. Juniors usually have a share in the senior gradua- tion activities. At the Baccalaureate service the juniors act as ushers and the junior officers lead the proces- sional down the aisle. At the Alunmi reception junior girls serve at the punch table. As the school year closes, the juniors look forward to returning in the fall as the grads of '47.

F orty-one SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY Although they are the youngest class in high school, you canit beat those sophsl They have athletes, jour- nalists, musicians, scholars and more beautiful gals than any sophomore class in E.H.S-. history. During their first meeting as a class, the sophomores in January of 1946 elected the following oliicersg President, David Herring, ' Vice President, Dick Murphy, Secretary, Suzann Young, Treasurer, Donn Spilmang Boys, Social Chairman, Richard Campbell, Girls' Social Chairman, Betty Grove, and the Class Sponsors are: Miss Siner and Mr. Sproull. The next thing on the program was choosing a corn- mittee to select the class jewelry. This committee was made up of Janet Nicely, Betty Bollero, Mary Lou Bowen, Bob Bickart, Donn Spilman, Dick Murphy and Don McNeil, and they chose for their class an oblong mounting of gold with either a gold or blue stone setting. This was the first time that the sophomores of E.H.S. had ever selected their jewelry before they returned in the fall as juniors. Because of the war-time delivery, it was necessary to order them early. The insignia will be delivered some time next fall. On May 1, 1946 nominations for track queen for the Sophomore class were announced. Betty Grove and Dorothy Jenner were the two girls chosen out of the class to represent the sophomores. The first social event sponsored by the class was Forty-1 wo .J4 Acdoof id laeola e SOPHOMORE CLASS OFFICERS President, David Herring, Vice Presi- dent, Dick Murphy, Secretary, Suzann Young, Treasurer, Donn Spilmang social Chairmen, Richard Campbell and Betty Grove. The class sponsors are Miss Siner and Mr. Sproull. their annual party, "My Suppressed Desiren. This party was held on Saturday night, April 27, 1946 in the high school gym. The main attraction of the party was a fioor show which consisted of: a piano solo by Suzanne Young and accordion solos by Dick Cappel- letti. The grand march was lead by Miss Cart. There was a flash-light dance at the end of the party. Dancing, games, and planned entertainment were enjoyed by nearly two hundred sophomores. The chairmen and their committees for the party were Decorations, John Judd, Keith Juday, Jean Kratftg Refreshments, Pat Nye, Hilda White, Joan Bell, Betty Bollero, Jean Murphy, Phyllis Paulin, Phyllis Frederick, June Ashley, Jim Whistler, Sue Darrg Tickets, Rosemary Anglin, Nelson Moffat, Chaperons, John Bornemang Publicity, Anne Arbo- gast, Elaine Arnold, and Entertainment, Betty Grove, Richard Campbell. Concession at the track meet and at the dance fol- lowing the meet were given to the sophomores. This was the first time that the class had been given a chance to make money during the year. They'll save this so that they may have a bigger and better prom than any other class ever to enter E.l'l.S. They have been a little too busy with geometry and biology to work on many class activities, but next year they will be in the full swing of things! Here are the future athletes, outstanding musicians, Student Council presidents, editors and leaders of E.H.S. tomorrow.

Mrs. Oral Skipworth's boarding house in South Chicago was the setting for this three act play which gave the audience a smile and a tear. The plot centered around the interests and problems of Kate, a newspaper reporter. lt was ironical when her private and pro- fessional life became one through an accident. Around Kate was woven the life of the boarding house. Through such characters as frivolous Nancy, busybodies Dorothy and Peggy, the plot became one of laughter as well as of suspense.

The, Junior Class presented, COME RAIN OR SHINE, a delightful comedy which took place on the back porch of the Grayson sum- mer cottage. The story revolved around Jac Grayson and her friends. Jac, a nineteen year old girl becomes stage struck when a summer theater group moves near by. The director of the play proves to be very handsome and when Rosemary March as well as Jac tries to make an impression on him, the plot thickens into a grand comedy.

H. S. Band and Orchestra. Concerts, dinners, and various other social and civic functions have all been inspired by the music of these groups which have willingly gone out to do their part in the comniunuity. The activities of the band and orchestra were numerous during the year. Four concerts were presented: On November 16, January 18, March 22, and the traditional Senior Concert on May 24. One of the outstanding concerts of the year was the January 18th Con- cert which was a complete sellout, thus inducing the Concert Band and Orchestra to present another concert the following week. The other concerts also filled the auditorium to capacity. One of the spectacular events of the marching band was the trip to Purdue University, where the band represented Miami Ohio University during the Miami-Purdue game. The hand students then ate at the Student Union Building and were also taken on a tour through the Purdue Field House. The Elkhart High School and Purdue University bands participated in the flag raising ceremony before the game. All arrangements for the concerts are taken care of by the In- strumental Music Parents Club. The Ohiicers are: president, Dr. H. C. Higgasong first vice-president, K. J. Shamoryg second vice- president, Mrs. Rfalter Nadolnyg third vice-president, Edward J. Costicg secretary, Mrs. Robert C. Youngg treasurer, L. S. Arm- strongg publicity chairman, L. G.

Whether under the floodlights of Rice Field or in the turmoil of the packed gym, Blazer squads take with them into every game that spirit which has been a part of their training: the spirit of clean competition. With John' s boys, it's also a spirit of determina- tion to win the game for a great school and a great guy. ' i 'rL. hl..,,- f,-.L I, jde .xgflzfefic eloarfmenf Coaches JOHN LONGFELLOW-"John,', in completing his seventeenth year at the helm of the hardwood Blazers, racked up his most enviable record to date. by guiding the team through the regular season undefeated. Though Jolm is known around the town as the basketball coach, his major headache comes as chairman of the health and athletic depart- ment. a job he handles very successfully. MATTHEW RONZONE and ANTHONY CAMPAGNOLIY-Through all the football season these two coaches were recognized as "Matt" and i'Camp", so we see no reason to separate them now. Matt and Camp took over the football team two weeks before the regular season started and did a swell job in guiding the Blazers through a hard-luck season of injuries and tough breaks. CHELSEA BOONE-'iChelse" to any one who has been around E.H.S. for fifteen minutes, is looking forward to his 23rd season at the Blazer helm with many veterans returning from his last year's N.I.H.S. track champs. In addition to Elkhartis perennial sectional track championship teams, Chelse guides the cross country teams in the fall.. RAYMOND SORENSON - uHap'i, who has the longest conference championship winning streak to his credit, did it again this year as his team swept the Eastern division and the conference play-offs without losing a match. Nice going Hap." lets keep that winning streak. ROBERT EHRSAM-"Bob" brought the First conference baseball championship to E.H.S. last spring and from all indications intends to retain the title again this spring. Bob. besides his baseball talents. is turning out second team conference championships rather frequently as mentor of the "Shortfellows." HARRISON'BERKEY'-Wlteli Don Veller left E.H.S. for the Army. "Berk" took over the helm of war time Blazer football. In guiding the Blazer gridders through this transition period. Berk did a swell job, S even ry-si .11 but knowing that Veller would be back in time for the season next year, he couldn't refuse a job as head football coach at Decatur. Illinois. In his long stay at Elkhart as an assistant and head coach, Berk made a lot of friends, which made it doubly hard for him to leave. but Berk's a loyal Decatnrite now, and is striving to give Decatur High the name he helped build here at the Blazer helm. DON VELLER-The miracle man of E.H.S. football is back-or is he? Don Veller returned to Elkhart in time to take over spring football and was heartily welcomed by all the Blazer fans who still remember Don's great football teams. Don hadn't been here very long, when the in- evitable happened. Hanover College signed Don as head football and track coach. as well as director of Athletics. Everyone knew Don was college- material, but hoped he might turn out another great Blazer team before leaving. We sincerely hope that this is the step up the ladder which will bring him the fame and success he so richly deserves. RILEY JORDAN-Resigning this spring as Treasurer of the Athletic Association in order to devote his full time to teaching. "Riley" leaves behind him eighteen years of eflicient service to the school and to the many supporters of the Blazer squads. The most sought-after man before any important athletic contest, he has managed to perform his duties, which include handling all athletic accounts. supervising sales of tickets, arranging for ticket takers, and handling crowds at games, smoothly, in addition to his regular teaching program as a member of the social studies department.

Playing in sweltering weather, both teams appeared lethargic on defense in the fi1'st half which ended 13 to 13, after a 13 to 0 Blazer lead in the first quarter. Coming back in the second half, the Blazers used the old, old formula inthe best offense is a good defensevg as a result, the Fort Wayne team was overwhelmed. A high-spirited Elkhart team won their second game of the season by merely applying the skids to a big, willing and young Chicago Vocational team. After a drizzling first half and a 7 to O lead, the Blazers again applied their second-half strategy to overcome the driving attack of the Chicago eleven. But instead of the offensive fireworks which had sparked the opening game, it was the defense that stood out. Marring the victory was the first half injury to Paul Bradley, a veteran of two years, which prevented him from com- pleting the season. Calumet district once again struck Elkhart High football, as East Chicago Washington handed the Blazers their first setback of the 19445 season 8 to 0. Washington scored in the second quarter on a safety and in the fourth on a touchdown. The Blazers main showing came on repeated defensive stands despite the injuries to both first string tackles, King and Darling. Despite the driving attempts of Klinger and the passes of Stephic, the Blazers did not enter Wash- ington territory. Playing in the rain again, the Blazers bowed to the Laporte Slicers. Cashing in on some good breaks, the Slicers got going with a mixture of fast running plays and forward passes to lead the Blazers 13 to 0. How-. ever, with two minutes to go 'til half-time, an aerial from Swarts to Hoffman and the extra point by Fuller put Elkhart back in the game. But in the second half the Blazers lacked the driving power of Klinger, who was lost to the team, due to a back injury in the East Chicago game, and could not score. The last of the Blazer threats failed on the Laporte 32 yard line when Laporte intercepted an aerial. At this point there was little time left in the game and Laporte went on to. win 13 to 7. The Blazers failed to get a good start when they played the Maroons at Mishawaka. The hosts counted two touchdowns in the first nine minutes. Then, after- kick-off number three, the Blazers began to play foot- ball. Coming back after the half, the Blazers scored on a pass by Stephic and then continued to hold the Maroons until a last quarter pass was intercepted and returned for the final touchdown with Mishawaka winning 19-6. The banged-up Blazers, minus Brigant and Hoffman, again accepted defeat, this time to their near rival John A-dams. Their usual first quarter slump gave Adams their only points, Quick to take advantage of the poor Elkhart pass defense, the Eagles passed to their first touchdown. Elkhart, fighting back against a touch- down in the second quarter, dominated the second half. But the best of several Blazer bids in the last half was stopped by Adams on their 5-yard line after it had been first down and ten on the Adams 11. A pass from Swarts to Simons scored the only Blazer touchdown. Goshen High received a much appreciated Golden Anniversary present from E.H.S. on Foremen Field in the form of a 13 to 12 victory. The first half was mostly Goshenis, as they scored two first quarter touch- downs to lead at the half 13 to 0. Returning after the gfazer ardifg, Z5 gcbfion half, the Blazers dominated the second half of play. Swarts and Berlick scoring the two last uarter touch- downs. The line led the way as they opened large holes for Fuller, Booniershine, Clark and Andreson. Though most of the second half was played in Goshen terri- tory, only in the last quarter were the Blazers able to break through. Starting their floodlight final of the season with a bang, the Blazer underdogs jumped to a surprise lead of 12 to 0. Taking advantage of a Washington fumble, a pass from Stephic to Hoffman and a sneak by Stephic gave Elkhart their first touchdown. Elkhart again took over the ball on a Washington fumble and upon receiv- ing a pass from Boomershine, Hoffman carried the ball over for a T.D. Washington stopped the threaten- ing T-formation attack in the third quarter and swept back to score. Wide-awake play by Boomershine and a driving Elkhart line kept the Blazers in the game 'til they were overcome in the last quarter 25-12. - In the post season game between the underclassmen of Michigan City and Elkhart, the fans got a look at next year's Blazers. ln the second quarter, Fuller re- turned a Red Devil punt to the Devil's 18 yard line. From there Broadbent carried it over for the only Blazer score. Later in the second quarter, a penalty placed Michigan City in the scoring position and they scored their only touchdwon and missed the extra point. Twice in the second half Elkhart reached the Bed Devills 3 yard line but both times the ball was lost by fumbles. Final score: Michigan City 6, Elkhart 6. For the second straight year the Blazers operated from the HT" formation, though they mixed in a few plays off the Notre Dame box and the short punt for- mation towards the end of the year. The season was a heart breaker for the local fans who had expected a banner year with so many letter men returning, but the fans and the team were hit hard from the very first of the season. The first blow came when 'Coach Harri- son Berkey resigned just before the season started. Co-coaches Matt and Camp got the boys off to a won- derful start, hut again the Blazers were hit hard. In two successive games the squad lost Igwo of tlryir hardest running backs, Bradley and linger. e Blazers never quite recovered from these blows and though they fought hard, they could not make up for this loss of power and the blow to their morale. But new hope was instilled in the Blazer fans last fall when the football setup 1'eceived a thorough T- valnping. Most noticeable of the changes was t e establishing of it "Bn footlball lsquzilld, cplaposiddep- tirely of underc assmen, w o p aye a u sc e u e of eight games with other teams in the conference. Be- sides the "B" team, the freshmen played five games with conference foes. With these changes to give the underclassmen actual game experience before they make the varsity squad, the fans, school and coaches are hoping for a new era in Blazer football next fall.

Bill King, tackle John Lucchese, guard Opening the season without the services of ulieapingw Leo Hoffman, the Blazers, with Jimmie Linn showing the way with 23 points, defeated Bristol 44 to 21. After defeating ,limtown 63 to 28, the Blazers traveled to Gary and defeated a supposedly strong Emerson five 44 to 30 after leading 25 to 8 at the half. Upon winning their first conference game from Wash- ington 37 to 21 and disposing of their arch rivals, Goshen, 31 to 19, the Blazers were ranked 15th in the Associated Press basketball poll. In disposing of Auburn 61 to 28 and pitifully humbling East Chicago Roosevelt 56 to 14, the Blazers were ranked in the tenth spot in the A.P. poll, ,lohn's boys took this position in the top ten and never relinquished it through- out the rest of the season. The job was all cut out for the Blazers when they met the Laport Slicers, picked by many to win the conference. Getting off to a fast first quarter lead of 14 to 8, the Blazers added a point to their lead as they led the sur- prised Slicers 23 to 16 at half-time. With all the starting Hve scoring from 7 to 12 points, the Blazers went on to win 54 to 36 and to gain a third place ranking, a ranking which they never dropped below for the remaining seven weeks of the season. ,lourneying to Hammond for the New Year's Day tourney, the Blazers dropped their first game 41 to 43. In the consolation game in the evening, the Blazers re- gained their stride and hitting 13 of 14 free throws, defeated Griffith 48 to 36. BASKETB LL- Showing the signs of having played five games in ten days, the Blazers had a rough time in winning their third conference game 40 to 35 from Michigan City. The following evening, with the reserves playing a good share of the game, the Blazers, playing their tenth game in thirty days, dropped W31'S3W' 66 to 34. Perhaps they were looking ahead a little, but the Blazers pulled the game out of the fire and wound up with a 42 to 31 decision over Mishawaka. Wfith the conference hanging in the balance, the Blazers, after trailing 8 to 9, 14- to 17 and 25 to 26 at the end of the first three quarters, showed real class and pressure shooting by scoring 11 points in the last six minutes to submerge Riley 38 to 32. Thus by heating Riley and then winning a close one from North Side of Fort Wayne 38 to 38, the Blazers reached the most coveted spot a high school basketball team can attain, THE NUMBER ONE TEAM IN INDIANA. Toting their new title, the Blazers traveled to Nappanee and after a hectic first half, pulled away to a 61 to 41 victory with Dick Brown setting a new conference scoring record of 30 points. The following evening Greensburg succumbed to the Blazers 56 to 39 as the fans, team and coach readied for the all important game with S.B. Central. After jumping Come on. now, gang-lefs give a big locomotive me Mazem in Ol anner ear away to an ll to 3 first quarter lead, the Blazers slowed down as the fast-breaking Bears came up fast to cut the lead to 19-14 at the half. Holding the Blazers to two free throws in the third quarter, the Bears went ahead to a 23 to 21 lead. Playing the kind of pressure ball that had characterized the Johnis Boys all season and won them their state ranking, the Blazers came through with the chips down to win 25 to 28. With a conference tie cinched, the Blazers went on to defeat Goshen 46 to 33 and completed a perfect con- ference season by defeating S.B. John Adams 45 to 32. Through some freak in the halloting, though impressive in defeating Adams and Goshen the Blazers had to be content to enter the tourney as the No. 2 team in the state. Thus ended a reign of five weeks, the longest en- joyed by any team as the number one team. Though they were No. 2, they carried into the sectionals the record of being the most consistent team in the state, having been ranked 3rd or higher for eight straight weeks of the thirteen week season. - With the most successful season in his coaching career behind him, John Longfellow, as well as the school and townspeople, has next year to speculate. Though Jimmie The Short fellows, with Coach Ehrsanz Linn will be the only starter to return, he will be backed up by three lettermen, Cliff Murray, Dick Berlick, and Harold Heeter. This may not he as strong a nucleus as this yearis team or of some previous Blazer teams, but it is a well balanced squad. With Jimmie and John in there helping the less experienced boys along ,til they in turn become experienced, we can he sure of another good Blazer team to carry the Blue and White in traditional fashion. Last year's second team, though not as successful as the three previous editions of the Shortfellows, turned in a very successful season of eighteen wins and five losses. The note found in this record is the fact that all of the squad are sophomores. .John reverted to this policy after three successful seasons of using juniors on his second team. He did this mainly to augment his next year's team, which will find six vacancies in the first seven spots. So, with an undefeated season behind them and the knowledge that any one of their next games might be their last game under John and the last of their high school C3l'6Bl'S, the six seniors, Tommie, Brownie., Lee, Jim, Boobie, and Chas., entered in the last week before the Sectional. A Managers check uniforms Wokn ana! fha 60g6 . . . D p Though 'ithe boysi' were yet to write their own tribute in hard Work and sweat, the man behind the boys, "john", deserves all the tribute that can be mustered for develop- ing such a fine sportsmanlike team, for the boys received almost as much credit for their conduct as for their play- ing. But before paying tribute to this great coach, letis see just what kind of a team he has developed. The best analysis of the Blazers was written by a near- by sports writer, whom we quote. "Elkhart does not have a spectacular ball club studded with chot-shots' in the true Hoosier fashion. The Blazers are rapid and they pass the ball well. They do a bang up job of fast breaking when the opportunity presents itself. They play their game calmly and mechanically, moving the ball with pre- cision and caution and every once in a while Jim Swarts or Leo Hoffman or Tommy Kern, or somebody like that, takes a perfectly natural, unpretentious shot and scores two points. It is not particularly awesome to watchjit does not stand the spectator on his ear, but it is very practical and has been winning a lot of ball games? Add to this a sixty-plus free throw average and the fact that the Blazers were rated by most coaches who saw them play as the best schooled team in fundamentals that they had seen and you will understand why We think it necessary to dedicate this section in tribute to John Longfellow for his splendid guidance of Elkhart's greatest Blue Blazers.

W K - f 2 Mg For the first time since the late thirties, the Blazers found themselves in the three-team bracket. This drawing paired them with Nappanee Friday, Middlebury Saturday afternoon and then with the surprising Bristol Pirates, winner of the upper bracket, in the Saturday night Hnal. The Bulldogs failed to put up nearly the resistance they had offered the Blazers in their previous meeting and as a result, the Blazers equaled the 61 points they had scored in the conference game while holding Nap- panee to 27, fourteen points below their previous totals. In the Middlebury-Elkhart game, the fans thought they had a tourney natural. For Middlebury was one of the better county teams and had the height to give the Blazers a good battle. But, much to the disappointment of the Ze lbifney Pal fans, the Blazers, led by Leo Hogman's 28 record breaking points, scored 72 points, also a tourney record, while holding the Middies to 35. With the fans yelling and hoping for an upset, the underdog Bristol Pirates took the floor for their first appearance in the finals of the sectionals. But the Blazers showed that they were quite capable of disappointing the crowd by easily disposing of the Pirates 59 to 37. Mondayls papers found the Blazers in the state lime- light once again as they had compiled the state's highest winning average, 641 points per game, and had won by the greatest average margin, 38 points. The Blazers didn't take much stock in the papers, for they could remember the hard time they had encountered The Tourney Opens at Nappanee COIWLQJ fo Clll elfl in beating South Bend Central in their previous meeting and spent the week in readying for the ever-improving Bears. The week's practice was not in vain for the Blazers came through to win 37 to 33. The Blazers were out- scored from the field but sank their free throws with their usual accuracy for the winning margin. The game, the second of the afternoon, told on the Blazers as the Bears were noted for their fast style of play. This fact of the Bears speed and the playing of the second game was soon to tell for it was a tired team of Blazers that took the floor to face Culver in the finals of the Regional. That the fabulous string of Blazer victories was broken by the hot-shooting Culver five is now a Eldy at the mike . . . Don assists . . . to give complete Blazer sports coverage known fact, but there was something more written into the minds of the fans that night in South Bend. The final tribute to a great team was to be written by that team into the minds of the fans. For out on the floor, five tired Blazers were fighting to bring more glory to their fans, school and to themselves in such a manner that was to remain as long as thoughts of this great team remain. It has been said that there is one way and only one way to tell a champion and that was what the Blazers were showing to their fans. For those boys, fighting all the way, wrote the tribute by which they shall be remembered, showed that not only could they play and win like champions but more important that they could play and lose like champions.

The Eastern Division play was confined to a one day tournament as has been the practice for the last three years. This year's tourney, held in Elkhart in 143 and 14-11-, was played in South Bend at Lepper Park. The Blazer netters copped all possible points as they swept through the three single divisions and the one double division. Their 12 points were followed by Michigan City's and South Bend Central's 4 points each. Bob Bugh, captain, playing his fourth year on the varsity squad, was the individual champion of the con- ference. He easily swept through Flight 1 singles. Chuck Walker and Bay Wharton captured the Flight 2 and 3 singles, respectively. Bugh, Walker, and 'Wharton won three matches each to take them to their titles. In doubles play, the Blue Blazers also came through as Dick Rish and Chuck Swartz added three more points for the final total of 12. ln the playoff match between the Eastern and the Vlfestern N.I.H.S.C. champions, the Elkhart netters blanked East Chicago Roosevelt 5 to 0 at the Rice Field courts. When the conference season rolls around again next fall, Coach Sorenson will find that he has lost the most men by graduation that he has lost in any one season since he started his string of championships in 194-2. "Hap" will lose five of his first seven men on this yearis team. Bob Bugh, a four year man, Chuck Walker, Chuck Schwartz, Dick Rish and Elmer Denlinger, all three year men will be lost by graduation. This leaves captain-elect Bay YVharton and Ed Beaver, two year men, to form the nucleus of next year's team. The Champs in Action Bob Hugh. Rish and Swartz Chuck Walker Ray Wharton e :ie wind again . . . an again With the following lettermen in the order of points scored last year, Capt. Leo Hoffman, Marvin Owens, Jim Swarts, Dick Brown, Bob Bugh, Tom Kern, Cliff Murray, Bill King, Kenny Hoon, Craig Davis, Charley Walker and Paul Verhagen, the Blazers were well equipped to defend their conference and sectional crowns. Though the Blazers can't equal last year's undefeated dual meet record, having dropped a close one to South Side, they did hand North Side of Fort Vlfayne the most stunning defeat they've received in ten years. In fact, in ten years North Side has lost two dual meets, to Elk- hart in '45 and then this year's decisive defeat. Chelse Boone, winner of 21 of 23 sectionals since he came to Elkhart, has compiled a schedule which includes twelve dual meets, the Goshen and Kokomo Relays, Hammond Invitational, and others totalling upwards past twenty meets in all. ln the conference track meet, held at Elkhart for the first time, the Blazers finished third behind North Side of Fort Wayne and Mishawaka. ln the Sectional, held at Elkhart also, the Boonemen won their twenty-first section- al in twenty three years. The Blazers were not as impres- sive in these meets as was expected. This was due to many reasons, not the least was the reoccurance of an old leg injury to Leo Hoffman, defending champ in the state Quarter mile. This injury kept Leo from running in the sectional and as a result, kept him from qualifying for the state. This was a major blow to the team and left it lacking the power it was expected to have at the state meet. Other qualifiers were Marvie Owens in the 100 and 220 yard dash, Burt Boomershine in the pole vault, Kenny Hoon in the 44-0, Marland Kalb in the 880, Paul Verhagen in the broad jump, Jim Swarts in the high hurdles and both relay teams.

After brushing aside Goshen 33 to 23, the Boonemen met the Redskins of North Side for the second time and this time beat them 29 to 27. Though beating North Side is a successful season in itself, the Blazers didn't stop and went on to beat Mishawaka 31 to 26, Kalamazoo Central 31 to 24- and to beat Goshen for the second time 32 to 25. Meeting Mishawaka for the third time this year, the Blazers knocked them off 33 to 25. Travelling into Michi- gan, the wandering Blazers swamped Benton Harbor 45 to 15. Upon returning home the Blazers slumped to allow Laporte to hand them their second loss 32 to 24. Climbing back into form, the Blazers walloped Kala! mazoo Central 42 to 17. The last meet of the year found the Blazers placing 5th in the conference meet. Ninely 1ifI7ll1t'l'fIIg up for the camera Co-Captains Bilmzcio and Bolts tall: it ones' Seated: Co-Capt. John.

Ward Merclmnt BASEBALL For the second straight year the diamond nine has won a share of the conference title. Last year, winning the first championship in the history of the school, the Blazers tied for first with Michigan City. Repeating again this year, the Blazers appeared out of the running until an underdog Mishawaka nine defeated previously unbeaten Michigan City in Michigan Cityls last conference game of the year. This brought about the tie for the second straight year. The Blazers' only defeat came at the hands of the City nine in a heartbreaker 9 to S after the Blazers had lead 8 to 2 in the earlier innings. As for the Blazers, they were probably more impressive, having won by more impressive margins. This season probably will mark the end of Elkhart's first reign as conference champs as eight of the starting nine will graduate. The only returning starter will be shortstop, Jim Linn. Heading the list of graduating seniors are five 3 letter winners. They are: 3rd baseman, Dick Brown, catcher, Tom Kern, left fielder, Bob Primavera, center fielder, Paul Verhagen, and pitcher Jim Swarts. Rounding out the list are right fielder Leo Hoffman and second baseman Louie Bigler who have won their second baseball E's and Chuck Schwartz, first baseman, who won his first baseball letter this year. Left for next year's nine will be Linn, Gene Lambin who played a lot of ball for a sophomore, Dick Link, Arnie Cordon, Blondie Campbell, Ced Strouse, Leon Whistler and Leo Koenig.

PHYSICAL One of the most important activities in our school is the physical education and health department, which con- ducts classes for boys in the high school gym, the YMCA gym and pool, and the obstacle course on West High Street. Credit in health and physical education is re- quired for graduation by both state and local standards. Classes in health, safety, and physical education in the ninth year are followed by twice a week physical edu- cation classes in the sophomore year and daily physical fitness classes for junior and senior boys. These well-balanced courses include rhythms, testing, swimming, lifesaving, calisthenics, mass games, bowling, correctives, combatives, apparatus work, and funda- mentals of sports. Junior and senior boys also have one period per week in health and first aid instruction. These classes are great- ly aided by the use of motion pictures and actual class- room demonstrations. Individual records of height, weight, and achievement tests are kept throughout the year, with grades and awards being given on the basis of the results obtained. Special awards are made at the end of each term to the ranking individuals in each of the various events. These events include the distance runs from track, calisthenics, and various swimming events. The awards are ribbons which are presented at a special assembly before the student body. Some good physical fitness records have been set, and our course is rated as one of the best in the state. - V Physical F itness the lmrd way EDUCATIO -flte AMAA Crowded gym conditions have created a problem for girls, physical education classes for the past several years. This fall the situation was relieved by the rental of the M. E. Church 'gym across the alley from the E.H.S. gyms and the construction of an underground tunnel. This underground passage made it possible for the girls to go from shower and locker rooms to classes without changing clothes or being exposed to inclement weather. Special painting and lighting made the new gym attrac- tive and clean. The physical education classes for girls begin in the sixth grade. Twice weekly, girls attend gym classes from the sixth to the ninth years. Health cha1'ts and tests of various kinds are used as a basis for the class work, drills being used to give the girls the gymnastic work most suited to their needs. These drills consist of the usual calisthenics, marching and rhythm fundamentals, and games of various kinds. Gym classes are held during the dayg sports for girls are conducted on a voluntary basis, after school. The competitive angle in these sports, and the planning of a well-rounded seasonal program are managed by the Fashions of the Day-in the girls' gym 0118 of fA8 5l90l't5 l0l'0gl"6ll'I'l Discobolus Club, an organization for all high school girls interested in sports. This club, under the direction and inspiration of Miss Flora Cart, has set up a complete sports program by scheduling seasonal sports after school every day, by running tourneys to encourage skill in these sports, and by working out a point system which encourages indi- vidual achievement. This plan has given new impetus to the sports program at E.H.S. More than a hundred girls take part in these after school sports, which include swimming, bowling, badminton volleyball, tennis, arch- ery, and soccer. Next year it is hoped that many girls will avail them- selves of the classes offered on a voluntary basis for girls in the eleventh and twelfth years. These classes could be made to include whatever sort of work the girls felt they needed and wanted. Dancing, posture correction, reducing or building up exercises, and many other types of gym work will be offered if the girls elect these courses, Mr. Longfellow stated. These classes would meet two or three times a week. The physical education program for girls is just beginning to grow. . . . good for the waistline Elkhart Pattern Works ...... Armstrong. W.

We supplied the government kyith many important items, including 383,000,000 packages of soluble coffee, 167,000,000 packages of lemon powder, 25,000,000 Ration K units, 188,000,000 bodium chloride tablets, 18,000,000 bouillon powder packages, 6,000,000 life raft vitamin tablets, 23,000,000 orange powder packages, 4,000,000 phenacetin tablets, and many other items. For this we received the Certificate of Meritorious Service awarded by the Army Quartermaster Depot. But now we're back to peace-time production. We're turning out Alka-Selt- zer, One-A-Day fbrandj Vitamins, and our regular line of pharmaceutical lpreparations for the civilian population of the United States and foreign countries. We - and our workers - are happy over the change. These workers, many of them, are Elkhart High School alumni. As time goes on, we hope to number many of the Class of 1946 among them. E Miles Laboratories has always been a pleasant place to work, just as it has always been a highly esteemed concern with which druggists of the nation like to , 'rfansacr business. Our aim is to keep on making "Miles" a name that does credit to the city which we are proud to call home. lfe.6 fd60l'df0l'l6A, fha ELKHARTJNDIANA Established Over Sixty Years One Hundred Fifteen 6333327 490, M021 br. fake:-le Cxiropracfic ,9Ay.4ician Corner Second and Franklin olr-1----14---r---A-U ---fi -A--1 - guard u u .Cara . . . anal more Cara . . . .NUJJOHJ . . . .uuobona . . . am! more JJMAOM . ..
