together, in classes, learning and doing.
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.

"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"
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
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
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

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.

Of course, we wouldn't want the faculty to suspect it, but
those special days and those special programs are what we

Some of these are regularly planned days, some are un-

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

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-
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. Three hill billy

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,

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:

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.

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
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

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

gast, Elaine Arnold, and Entertainment, Betty Grove,
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!

At eight o'clock on November ninth, the senior class, under
the direction of Miss Ruth Agnew, presented HEADED FOR
EDEN. 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.

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

The inspiration of music has meant a great deal to the com-
munity life of Elkhart through the efforts of the E. 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
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-

together, in games, carrying the Blazer colors.
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

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

Opening the 1945 and postwar football play at Rice
Field, the Blazers chalked up their first victory by
winning 4-5 to 13 from Fort Wayne North. 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-
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
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
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
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.

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.
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
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

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

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

and spent the week in readying for the ever-improving
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

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.

Last fall found Coach Raymond '4Hap" Sorenson's
E.H.S. tennis squad crowned champions of the Northern
Indiana High School Conference for the fourth year i11 a
row. 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
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.

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.

With only three lettermen returning, co-captains Bill
Bohs and John Bilancio and Cliff Murray, the Boonemen
opened a very successful season by downing Mishawaka
31 to 25 and Laporte 45 to 15 before losing to North
Side, perennial track and cross champions in a close meet
26 to 30.
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.

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.

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-
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

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

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.

figures that she wishes every girl could have one. So, in creating Cole swim-

Yes, we tried to do our part during the war. 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.
