Most of our days
were filled -
going to classes, doing the same little things
every day, and seeing the familiar faces - -
Life at EHS is never dull. From the minute we
come to school hy bus, bike, car, foot or thumb, things
start buzzing. First we meet the gang around that certain
locker and catch up on all the latest guz. Or we meet that
certain person, whom we haven't seen since eleven oiclock
last night. Or we rush into the powder room to take out the
bobby pins and apply lipstick. All is noise, confusion,
All day this feeling of excitement continues. We all
have that feeling of being in the midst of a place where
things are happening. Maybe it's college applications,
maybe it's a pep session or a play or concert. Maybe it's
a chem test coming up or a homeroom program. Maybe itis
an assembly or it,s Black Tuesday-tgrade card dayl.
We pass a friendly teacher, like Mr. Winne. We see
Woody swinging past with his swift and energetic stride.
We bump into a couple of strolling lovers, we dash into
the oHice to ask a favor of Betty or Mary Loug we run
shivering to the Methodist Church classroomsg we gather
with the regular gang for lunch. Bells sound, machines hum,
typewriters click, voices rise and fall, a good smell is
waited out of the kitchensg a had one, from the chem lah.
There are a dozen things to do, and a million people to
see about this or that. lt's life at EHS, and we love it.

MR. ORGAIY, NOCATIONAL DIRECTOR, GETS
ACQIIAIYTED XVITH the two new teachers in his office
over in the annex. The two newcomers are Mr. John
Morgan. who teaches Auto Mechanics, and Mr. Ion Abel,
who teaches Electricity. Mr. Organ explains the con-
nection between his department and the industries of our
city, telling them a little about the ex ening and apprentice
classes. By now, Mr. Morgan and Mr. Abel are very
much at home in good old E.H.S. with the students, as
well as the faculty.

YOCATIOIXAL DRAWING is a course for seniors
expecting to enter industry. The first few weeks of the
year, they learn to letter and then to draw plans for
machine parts, and the tools used in the Machine Shop.
They assist the annual staff by making the junior and
senior panels. The pupils spend three hours in class daily

DRAWING I0 is the first course 'iven in the lliffll
school beyond General Shop Drawing. The languaffe
used in this course, called the graphic language, is the
language of industry. In order to use this language, the
student must he able to visualize an object and make
necessary views of it. Mr. Anderson instructs the boys in
the use of the drawing board, tee square, compass, and
triangle. First in the course of Mechanical Drawing
free-hand sketching is stressed. Then comes the view
drawing and the pietoral drawing, which completes the
year's course. The hasic understanding will make it
easier for hiln to read drawings in any of the shops in
which he may work.
Drafting means accuracy

HY HOMEMAKINC CLASSES, COOKING takes up
one semester. The purpose of this course is to help the
pupil develop ability to meet some family food problems
and get more experience in working with foods.
In the tenth grade homemaking classes, which are repre-
sented in this picture, the preparation of food is a high-
light for the girls through one semester. Uppermost in their
minds is "What shall we cook?" and "When do we eatiw.
The girls develop some ability in meeting family food prob-
lems and some skill in handling foods as well as manage-
rfi:e"nt of time in the preparation of meals.
One special project for each girl is planning, with a
limited amount to spend, the preparation and the serving
of a luncheon to teachers or other groups from the com-
The care and use of laboratory equipment make up an
important part of the learning experiences of the girls.
The students are taught the following ideas: interest in
planning and serving suitable meals, ability to prepare
and serve meals to groups at school, understanding the
dietary needs, of the sick, methods of canning foods, making
jams and iellies and preparing attractive refreshments for
Activities in unit kitchens result in an understanding of
the importance of working together cooperatively. The
unit kitchens, with equipment for four girls, provide a home-
like situation for meal preparation and serving.
In the menu planning, the girls become interested in the
calorie content of foods. They learn to recognize the foods
that are high in calories which they can avoid choosing in
quantity. They can select diets suitable to their age and
height and learn the importance of diet in improving one's
A wise gal learns "A stitch in time" . . .
THE PURPOSE OF THE CLOTHING COURSE is to
help girls develop ability to meet problems concerning the
buying, making and repairing of garments.
The pupil is taught to recognize different kinds of clothing
problems, ability to use sewing guides and equipment
efficiently, skill in sewing techniques, knowledge of how
fiber and fabrics differ, ability to evaluate hand made and
ready made clothes.
In the twelfth grade, the subject changes slightly. This
course is open to all pupils who want help in building a
satisfying personal life and in preparing for a successful
Style shows are featured, usually twice a semester, to
show the finished garments to classmates, mothers, and other
invited guests. In the spring, all the clothing classes work
together to present a homemaking department style show
in the auditorium. Exhibits and demonstrations are shown
in the homemaking rooms.
Some of the various things they learn are: how to get
along with people, understanding the conditions of a happy
marriage, knowledge of guides for conserving time, energy
and money, judgment in making choices, interest in child
development, knowledge of how to provide for physical
growth and ability to share in care and guidance of children.
Student teachers come to E.H.S. from Purdue University.
Each of the teachers spends four weeks doing student teach-
ing in the homemaking department. These students have
added interest and variety to the clothing classes.
The girls learn to test materials, to budget for their
wardrobes and to suit their choices of clothes to their size,
personality and preference. Films, commercial displays and
attractive bulletin boards help make the course more inter-
Where seeing is truly believing.
UP IN THE LABS, the kids are studying living things.
Now, as sophomores, they are convinced that no one can
escape biology. Since everyone is interested in himself and
things that aifect him, biology should be a study of much
concern to all. The importance of living things is realized
when the student recognizes his dependence upon other
living plants and animals. Studies of various plant and
animal groups and how they function are the chief studies
of the students. Bottles of live bugs, notebooks of leaves and
their identifications, spring flowers pressed between heavy
dictionaries-these are the familiar things that we grow
used to seeing every day.
Field trips are taken to get out and really see nature at
work. Other field trips, sponsored by the science club, give
students ideas about related sciences. The students learn to
identify birds on sight, their songs and living habitats and
ranges of Hight. The all-important study of landscaping and
gardening is thoroughly gone over in an effort to inform
the students as to the beauty that their future homes may
have. Students collect and grow bacteria, see a tiny universe
in a small bit of pond water, watch bees at work in a hive,
plant and grow various seeds, learn to distinguish between
poisonous and nonpoisonous snakesg these are just a few
of the many things the kids do.
Miss Wlaggoner and Mr. Adams teach students to use the
microscope accurately and make this subject as interesting
as possible. HLearn by doing" is the motto of this course.
Films, displays and everything needed in the way of equip-
ment aid students in the Hdoingv.
As the Romans built them . .
LATIN CLASSES, guided by the capable hands of Miss Sawyer, probed
into the many Roman contributions to civilization and the methods used to do
these marvelous things. Various legends of the ancient Romans are translated
by many of the students.
The second year of Latin, IOA, develops an interest in some foreign language
and creates a desire for continued study. If the student wishes to continue in
his study of Latin, as a useful way to improve his knowledge in English. he
may do so.
Third year Latin strives to create smoother translation and deeper under-
standing of this ancient language. This class also supervises the plans and
arranges for the Roman Banquet which was held on April 13, this year. They
also observe various Roman holidays, like the ldes of March, and the Saturnalia.
Latin IZA makes the student familiar with stories of love, adventure and
character sketches of many famous Roman men and women. Many of the
original writings of Homer and Dante are used here.
As the Romans do
Headline hunters: Irene and Gunther.
IRENE AND GUNTHER LEARN about our country by studying newspapers from all
parts of the United States. This course, called American Problems, is the study of our
economic and social problems.
With the help of textbooks, papers, and Hlms, these two foreign students soon became
acquainted with the ways and means of our government. Every student is required to sub-
scribe to the American Observer, a miniature weekly newspaper, which gives us the pros
and cons of current governmental issues and news of interest to all, Films play a very
important part in understanding family problems and the nation's crime. In the study of
courts and their procedures, field trips to the city courtrooms are made.
Irene and Gunther told us many interesting facts about the governments of their home-
lands. This gave us interesting comparisons and new ideas for everyone to think aboutg so
we completed a study that should help us to be better citizens.
"Keep your eye on the copyv.
TYPING IS A REQUIRED SUBJECT FOR IREIYE, who hopes someday to be a
private secretary. Typing has almost become a requirement for a successful college career,
too. Here, Irene works on a business letter.
The typing course is made up of two parts. One part teaches the student how to
operate the machine and the other part is the learning of business and personal forms.
At the beginning of the year each student lafter paying a fifty cent rental feel, is
given a typewriting book and assigned to a typewriter. Several times during the course the
pupils are assigned to another typewriter. The purpose of this is for the pupils to learn how
to operate the different makes of machines.
Typing is taught by Mr. Cooper, Miss Deal and Mrs. Hines. Students try for thirty
word or forty word records and take regular speed tests.
When Irene returns to her own country, she plans to continue her training for secre-
Wolfgang solves the problem.
WOLFGANG MUST NOT ONLY LEARN MATH IN THIS CLASS, but also how to
crack wise. 1And by the way, he's pretty good at both.b
Trigonometry and a fourth semester of algebra are given to help the student understand
the problems which confront the builder. the engineer and the architect. Consequently, a
greater appreciation of art and architecture is furthered. From a vocational standpoint, a
knowledge in this field is almost a necessity. This course, taught by Mr. Harvey, serves
as a valuable introduction to the mathematics pupils will have in college if they choose to
go on. Included is a thorough analysis of trigonometry, solution of triangles, complex nurn-
bers, theory of equations, and an introduction to differential and integral calculus.
In spring. through held trips, the pupils become acquainted with the use of transits
But sometimes one parleys an error.
lRElNE AND THE FRENCH CLASS must see something tres amusant. Non?
In second year French, pictured ahove, the pupils become hetter acquainted with French
people, their customs, lives and ideas. The class is partially conducted in French, which
is very helpful to the students, Students are given extensixe reading and written work to do.
All the second year French class have had French 10, a preliminary course. These pupils
are taught how to form the vowelsg then, the various French words. This course takes
workg the pupils have to study the vocabularies, getting a good foundation, so the trans-
lation will not be so hard.
Irene is a wonderful linguistg her French is very smooth, and she makes the class more
interesting for all les eleves.

Speerh is a course which helps the pupil to dex elup skills that will enable him to put his
thoughts into words. Some nf the activities ofthe class are to make recordings, give speeehes
in comersation, do story telling or selling.
Grammar, closely related to speech, has, as its purpose to help pupils form better speech
hahits. One of the activities is a diagnostic test.
Through literature the pupils get acquainted with great writers of the past and
present. The classes have class discussions on stories, Orson Welles records nf Julius Caesar,
and spelling and xocabulary study.

THE STUDENT EUUNCIL
What can we do about the booing of the kids at games?
Can't we have cleaner halls? Why can't tickets be given to
seniors first? Why can't seniors have front row seats?
Shall we raise money for a foreign scholarship fund for next
year? . . . these are some of the problems that confront the
Student Council when it meets in the cafeteria every
alternate Tuesday during homeroom period.
Jim calls the meeting to order, and in his quiet way
begins the business of the day. Mr. French is sitting quietly
in the background, in case his sound advice is needed. Mr.
Anderson, the other sponsor, is present, too. Representatives
from each homeroom are seated around the tables, ready to
discuss the "unfinished businessf,
Of course, we all know about the foreign scholarship
program made possible by the Student Council, but did
you know that we owe a lot of our swell assembly programs
to the decisions of the Assembly Committee of the Council?
The Student Council also regulates and controls hall traffic,
operates the stamp savings program, and is the 'Scontactn
organization for those money-making magazine drives that
we have at the beginning of the year. ln an effort to make
all of us take more care in the appearance of the school
lawn, the Council was inHuential in getting trash disposal
cans placed near each entrance.
The Student Council also has a i'Steering Committee"
which cracks a whip over the other committees to see that
they are functioning. The members of this committee are:
Paul Stemm, ,lim Everts, Luther Jackson, Melba Leege.

foster a spirit of self-government and establish
high ideals of citizenship, to develop self-control,
self-reliance. and leadership among the students,
to bring about a sympathetic understanding be-
tween the students and the facultyg to give the
student a chance to participate in school manage-
ment, and to develop a co-operative and good
school spirit. Regular reports to the homerooms
and discussions which follow keep any student
who cares to know in touch with the Council. Ideas
originating in the hornerooms are taken back to
the council, where they are discussed and voted
upon. Thats why weire glad that the Student

doing things and always having fun as we accomplish
them, that's the Distributive Education group. The twenty-
three students meet with Miss Kirkland every day to
study the art of retailing. Since a part of the course is
putting this learning into practice in the downtown
stores, we have little time to meet after school and have
organized our club within the class time, as is the custom
of the national organization, to which we belong.
Miss Kirkland, our sponsor, is our inspirationg it is an
education just to be with her, she gives us personal help
as well as a fine background in good business ethics. Our
officers are: Elinor Shaurn, presidentg Tom White, vice-
presidentg Janet Magnuson, secretary, John Collins.

several parties and good times together.
At the club meetings, talks are given by business men
or skits and demonstrations in selling, or films are shown,
the purpose of the club being to develop progressive and
respected leadership in retailing and in school, to en-
courage high ethical standards, to encourage improve-
ment in scholastic and personal goals.
Barbara Lou Scott represented our club at the national
convention of D. E. Clubs at Tulsa. YVe earned money for

Mr. Winneis boys.
Everybody had fun.
Lugging equipment is par! of the job.
Remember those days when we went to movies during our
study hall period? Remember the boys who showed us
movies in class? Well, those are the Vis Ed boys.
Mr. Donald Wlinne, who enjoys working with people in
general, spends a good deal of his time assisting these
fellas in every task, no matter how small. Under his care-
ful guidance, these boys have acquired many skills. Running
projectors, developing film, printing pictures, enlarging
pictures-these are only a few of the things that the boys
The Vis Ed Club is a class, a homeroom, and a club, all
in one. Meeting daily in homeroom, they can plan the dayls
schedule of films to be shown, by careful program planning
there is an operator available almost every hour of the day.
The Vis Ed Club, last year, under the sponsorship of Mr.
Felmlee, brought equipment and built their own dark room.
This year, Mr. Winne and the club members have added
improvements and materials, with the result that a well-
equipped dark room is available to all club members. Plans
are now under way for the purchase of a club camera. Mr.
Winne hopes to build up a photographic department that
will really function for the school, as well as give experience
to the Vis Ed boys.
Last fall, the boys decided that, like any other club, they
needed some officers to take the responsibility of leadership.
Ted Schrock was elected presidentq Jack Clevenger, vice-
presidentg Bill Kreighbaum, secretary, and Dick Tompkins,
At the beginning of the second semester the club held
a re-election of officers. Ronald Johnson was elected
president, Ted Schrock, vice-president, Bill Kreighbaum,
secretary, and Dick Tompkins, treasurer.

The girls in the club help Mrs. Schreiner in the
dispensary during their study halls. This gives the
girls valuable experience in simpler forms of caring
for illnesses. Each day they must take care of many
patients. An accurate record is kept of everyone who
comes to the dispensary. No matter how large or
small the illness may be, it must be recorded. These
future nurses have full use and hold the responsibility
of the equipment in this pleasant, modern room.
The club, which meets every fourth Tuesday, has
increased its membership from forty-two to fifty-two
girls. With programs at the meetings, the girls attain
valuable knowledge which they receive from speakers
in the nursing profession or see demonstrations in

fiddlesticks instead of gee and listen to his aunts arguments
over whether he should become a lawyer, musician or an
architect. This is when impish Inner Willy pops out of thin

A dull thud echoed through the auditorium and the
audience roared as Di Possolt, Staff Wilburne and Nancy
Shields loaded the antique love seat until it broke.
"Quality Streetw hy James M. Barrie was the name of
this delightful senior class play. The play was about Miss
Phoebe Throssell, who was in love with a Captain Valentine
Brown. Miss Phoebe was ever being agitated by her sister.
Susan. Captain Brown goes to war, leaving poor Phoebe
with nothing to cherish but the memory of a kiss in the rain.
Ten years later, Valentine returns to find that Phoebe and
Susan have become school teachers. In the end, after many
complications, Miss Phoebe and Captain Brown discover
their love for each other.
Appropriate costumes, 19th century style, were rented:

effectiveness of the play.

Trottier and Gondek going over for the tallies. Early in
the second quarter, Elkhart scored on a pass from Gruber
to Ward, Soptich added the extra point. A few plays later,
Landis broke over his own left side and raced 78 yards for
a TD. The extra point conversion was missed. The Blazers
added insurance to their slim lead early in the third quarter
when Landis cracked over from the seven. Again the try
for extra point failed. Neither team was able to score again,
although the Blazers threatened late in the fourth quarter.
A powerful South Bend Central squad handed the Blazers
their first setback of the season. The Bears tallied their
first TD when Arv Fleming crashed over from the one.

the first conversion but Landis added the second.
With less than ten minutes remaining to play, the Elkhart

32 yards. Paul Geiger added the extra point. Early in the
third quarter, the Blazers scored when Bob Cappelletti
bowled over from the 3 yard line. The conversion try was
missed. The Eagles tallied two quick touchdowns to put
the score at 19-6. Early in the fourth quarter, Landis scored
from 16 yards outg Landisis try for the extra point was
perfect. With a minute and three seconds left in the game,

The game ended a few seconds later.
After Del Landis returned the opening kickoff 98 yards
for a TD, the Elkhart Blazers swarmed oxer a hopelessly
outclassed Bloomington team 33-0. The Blazers added
another TD a few minutes later when Wayne Gruber pitched
a TD pass to end Dick Starner. A few plays later, Ronnie
Linton raced 26 yards for the third Elkhart counter. Early
in the second quarter, Larry Shea dashed 50 yards for
another E.H.S. tally. The Blazers were held scoreless in
the third stanza, however, early in the fourth quarter, Bob
Cappelletti twisted T6 yards to put his team out in front
32-0. The final touchdown came when Kent Lou-facre crashed
over from the 4 yard line.
Led by Bob Cappelletti and Dick Starner. the Elkhart
Blazers scored a decisive 21-T victory over the Goshen Red-
skins. Cappelletti scored the first Blazer tally when he broke
over his own right guard and raced 18 yards for the TD.
Landis added the extra point. Early in the second quarter,
the Blazers tallied again when Wayne Gruber passed to
Dick Starner in the end zone. Landis again converted for
the extra point. The Blazers put the game on ice in the
third quarter when Starner intercepted Ray Wakeman's
attempted pass and scampered l9 yards for the TD. Landisis

side of the Mishawaka 20 yard line. A smashing defense
held the Maroons on the Elkhart one foot line late in the
third frame. Early in the fourth quarter, Veryl Stamm
smashed over from the 2 yard line for the first Maroon tally.

men on a 13 yard jaunt. Bob Hill set up the only Elkhart
score when he raced 50 yards to the Mishawaka 15. Two

l All Blazer home football games
are played at Rice Field, our
athletic field, located about one
mile from the down-town high

beautifully laid out, with well-
cared for turf, powerful Hood
lights and a total stadium caparity
of 10,000 people.

THE 1951 BLAZEB
The EHS basketball team made its season debut bv de-
feating the tough Jimtown Jimmies 56 to 45 in the Blazer
gym. Coach Bill Milliner employed a zone defense which
worked effectively except for the third quarter, as the
jimmies fast-breaked to several baskets.
Carv Emersonis High Schoolis basketball team was the
second victim for the Blue Blazers at the EHS gym, 67--13.
Their zone defense enabled Blazers to shoot at will from
both long and short range. Six-foot. three inch tip-in artist
Balph Kauffman, assisted by stocky Doug Grant, led the
Blazer scoring with 21 and lf! points.
On Dec. 1, the Blue Blazers cooked up a 64-53 win over
vounty rival Goshen Bedskins in the Elkhart gym. Twenty-
three out of thirty-four free throws for Goshen helped
prevent a one-sided game as Elkhart Won its nineteenth
straight victory over the Bedskin cagers. Elkhart had
a better than average night, with .321 percent.
The EHS team looked ragged despite their 47-39 win over
LaPorte's disorganized Slicers in the Blazer gym. The
Blazers. having a cool evening. banged in only 20 of 89
Feld tries and 7 of lil free throws. Fortunately. lNorm
lrlubneris inexperiens-ed Slit-ers were less effective.
With the reserve manpower accounting for 35 points.
the Blazer basketball team added a 57 to 26 win over Scott
High School of Toledo on Dee. 9. The win was number live
in as many tries for the Blazer team. Wayne Gruber and

at the freevthrow line, enabled them to cop a close one from
the Blazers. Elkhart had trouble all through the first half

When we came back to EHS. last September, we were
looking forward to our third year in high school.
Our first big event of the year was our ,lunior Follies,
which was presented October I9 in the high school audi-
torium. We called it 'KThe Mystic lslefl David Thomas was
our Master of Ceremonies and our own Junior Class
Orchestra played. We were all happy when we found that
it was a big success.
ln November, we elected our class officers for the year.
They were: David Thomas, Presidentg Kay Farr, Vice-
Presidentg Kay Miller and Norma Plummer, Secretary,
Bruce Lund, Treasurerg Mary DeWitt, Girls, Social Chair-
mang and Ronnie Linton, Boys' Social Chairman. Of course,
IUNIOR OFFICERS: Kay

our sponsors, Miss Deal and Mr. Hart, elected in our
sophomore year were still with us.
The next few months we amused ourselves with new clubs,
homework, football and basketball games. We sold con-
cessions at the Michigan City game and participated in the
other class activities.
On January 27, we had our second class party in the gym.
We had lots of sandwiches, pop, and potato chips to eat
and everyone had a good time.
We presented our class play, The Hoosier Schoolmasterf'
on Friday, April 13 in the auditorium. Everyone did a good
job and we were very pleased.
Our final and perhaps biggest event of the year was our
Junior-Senior Prom, which was held on May 19.
Thus, our junior year ended. Now we're looking forward
to being seniors.

treasurer, Shirley Leonard and Fred Stow, social chairmen.
Our sponsors, Miss Amsbaugh and Mr. Winne, were back

appreciation to the seniors by the Junior-Senior Prom, with
the theme "Dreamer's Wishesf,
We closed our year as Juniors with a class picnic.

If you go alone, you will make new
friends. It costs you nothing at the High
Dive Swimming Pool, not even for a
private dressing room and wire basket in
which to keep your clothes. These baskets
are kept behind the counter while you
enjoy yourself in the water or on the sand.
If you go often, you will learn to swim
and dive. You will also find some im-
provements at the High Dive in 1951.
Swimming is the best of exercise and
pays dividends in health and happiness.
