Dr 3k i= - i " Classes spilling over into the Methodist Church next door, students studying most anywhere (in cars, in corners, at the Public Library) , and an influx of 750 sophs making our halls more crowded than ever . . . that was EHS in the fall of ' 58. However. Superintendent Rice has given us new hope. When the new West Side Junior High School is completed, we can expand into all of the Central Junior High School Building. Meanwhile study halls were made into classrooms, schedules were adjusted to the new conditions, and classrooms were added wherever possible. Or in ;i looker. A horiowcd classroom: the ME Church ' s nursey. Studying most anywhere: on the library steps . . . These crowded conditions caused us to have " staggered programs; " that is, some of us came to school at 8: 15 and others came later. For some, classes ended at noon; for others, at 3:40. However, this new program offered a challenge to juniors and seniors. Now we were really on our own; we had to make our own study schedules and try to fit them into our activities or jobs or our family and church life. For the first time we knew the real meaning of homework. Learning under these conditions was new to us, but encouraged and inspired by good teachers, we tried to keep up our high standards of scholarship. The Public Librarv was always full of kids with a " free " hour. There ' s hardly enough room to move in the crowded EHS halls. - oulb ' f 6s CONCOl TAKES BIG Miss Crombie, from England, teaches English and historv. Enthusiastic and capable, I r.

When our community plans a project, puts on a drive or celebrates a historic event, many EHS students take part. We ring bells for the Salvation Army, collect money for the " March of Dimes. " We serve on committees, put up posters, or work on mailing lists. In many ways we become a part of Elkhart. faking pari in one eoramunil activity, Judy Sorg and Jerry Wricbt help the Salvation Army. 10 In September when Elkhart ' s Centennial year was being celebrated, almost everyone was acting in the pageant, ushering at the shows, making and riding on floats in the parade or " queening it " over the festivities. Perhaps the most outstanding event of the Centennial was the Meredith Willson " Music Man " night at the half of an EHS football game. Our musicians (76 trombones and all) played right along with famous musicians. It was a night to be remembered. An unforgettable moment for Julie Yeknik- Bill Paige crowns her Centennial Queen.

In Biology we learn to see ourselves as a part of the world of living things. We learn to recognize our dependence on other living things and to understand our place in the scheme of nature. We learn to use the scientific method and approach in Chemistry. Under the watchful eye of Mr. Gill, we do experiments to help us understand what our world is made of. Many of us also learned (for the first time) to be neat and exact. In Physics 11 we find out about the world around us. By ex- perimenting with weights, pendulums, micrometers, and circuit boards, we learn lab technique, becoming familiar with lab apparatus. W orking in the ohem laboratory.

We Learn Of Other Lands Four foreign languages are offered at Elkhart High School with a fifth, Russian, to be offered next fall. German is a relatively new language taught at EHS. Songs, stories, and con- versations help us gain our objectives of reading, writing, and understanding the German language as well as the country. Many practical uses of Spanish are taught for the students who may visit our Latin American neighbors. We also do supplementary reading in both Spanish and English. Most Spanish students belong to the Spanish Club, which helps them understand the Spanish countries and customs. Diane Fnnderbnrk displays a doll for a project in Spanish class. 18 In our French classes we hear many French recordings. In addition to working with a tape recorder, we also do oral and written work and learn much about the country of France. We enact various skits and short plays in these French classes, as well as French songs sung at holidays to acquaint the students with informal uses of the language. B. Matthews, and G. Tsehumakow practice conversing in French. Latin is taught in order to increase our under- standing and appreciation of the Romans and their contributions to civilization. Each year during National Latin Week, we make projects about ancient Roman life; at the end of the year we have the Roman banquet. Dave Erne shows the class his project for National Latin Vi eek. 19 Math Trains Minds Eight math courses are offered, for pupils on various levels of ability. Math courses provide good mental gymnastics, for instance, Geometry 10A. In the twelfth year Trig-Alg. 12 covers the solution of triangles, complex numbers, theory of equation, and calculus, a good preparation for math and science courses in college. H. Aim and J. Wiesner construct figures in Geometry 10. Ann % ork -hows Bill Morgan the solution of an oblique triangle. Pete Lynch arranges a mobile of geometrical figures. 20 We Acquire Skills Personal typing is a course for students desiring an elementary training for practical purposes. In Shorthand classes, the secretary of tomorrow works for speed and accuracy. Merchandising, offered in both junior and senior years is a part-time work experience course in phases of actual selling. Students learn that practice make! perfect in personal typing class. Taking dictation is an important part of learning shorthand. Gary Lehmen displays several Kodak products in Merchandising History Gives Us Our Heritage American Problems, a senior course, gives the student an idea of his responsibility as a citizen in the local government as well as the state and national government. United States History, an eleventh grade course, gives the student an understanding and appreci- ation of the history of our country. World History, a tenth grade course, de- velops cultural values in the student ' s life. Studying the map in orld History, we learn about different countries. E. Gonima discusses current affairs in L .S. Historv. Foreign student from Germany, Marie Schuehardt, leads a panel discussion in American Problems study. Rachel Fisher discusses a defense mechanism chart in Effective Living. Effective living (above) is a course con- :erned with social ad- justment and the study Df personal problems ind their solutions. study of basic psy- chology is strengthened ay use of films, :harts, discussions, ind lectures. A study of the city map — a part of the in-class study in Driver Education. 23 English Stresses Reading and Writing Part of English 11A: paragraphs. learning to write good In our senior year we take into consideration our future plans as we choose our English courses. Seniors planning to go to college take Writing Laboratory, a semester course in composition stressing the mechanics of punctuation, sentence structure, para- graphing, and documenting a term paper. The study of the Bible gives us a richer background by providing a better understanding of the greatest collection of all literature. In the first semester we study the history of the Jewish people; in the second semester, the life of Christ. In the junior year pupils may take English 11 A, a combination of the study of American literature and grammar. To aid us in our study of American literature, we listen to many fine recordings of American poetry. Dramatizing Biblieal scenes helps us visualize Biblical times. By organizing outlines in Writing Lab., we improve our themes. 24 Painting scenery and props, dramatic students prepare for the presentation of " Teahouse of the August Moon. " And Speaking Seniors interested in speech can take Radio Workshop, in which we prepare programs to be broadcast on both local radio stations, WCMR and WTRC. Another aspect of speech work is dramatics. Two courses are offered in the study of drama and of the interpretation and production of plays. Members of Radio Workshop participate in a drama given during .National Education Week. Linda Burnham making a speech: the introduction, the delivery, the criticism. In Modern Literature, Shirley Boots reports on a magazine. Special Courses Help Us In order to help Johnny read, our school offers three types of reading courses: one for non-readers, one for slow readers, and one for those who want to read faster with keener comprehension. Reading pacers and speed films are part of the modern approved equip- ment used in Developmental Reading classes. Another English course is Modern Literature, a two-semester course offered as an elective in the senior year. In class we read and discuss magazines, short stories, plays, biographies, and the newspaper. The course is designed for leisure time reading, listening, and seeing, in adult life. HE ■pSfciiis ' iiR 4J DVH We improve our reading ability in speeial reading class. Using pacers in Developmental Reading class, we increase our reading rate. 26 Dave Darling, student director, a part of music education. Arts: Useful and Satisfying In Band, Orchestra which meet each day, musicians learn to play, to interpret, to appreciate. Even though our program has many practical courses, the arts are not neglected. The art workshop offers us every type of artistic training from the practical to creative, and in using all media. Homemaking is a wonderful career: it has many rewards and pleasures. Our Elkhart High School homemaking department reflects the many activities of a real home: planning menus, balancing budgets, making and repairing clothes, caring for children, and the study of family relationships. In Printing Art we practice neatness and exactness. We gain first-hand experience working in the homemaking kitchen. 27 Billv Room- operates a milling machine, in Vocational Machine Shop. The actual building of a five- room house was the work of the Building Trades class this year. The boys had units in masonry, wall construction, roofing, finishing and plastering. Wired with the help of the electricity class, the house was ready for exhibition in May. When the house was the hornemaking ( s planned the decorating scheme. This EHS project made front page news. Bo} put exterior trim on the house constructed in ftuildine Trades. We Learn a Trade Because EHS offers such a wide variety of vocational courses, boys are able to graduate from our high school with exten- sive training for their chosen occupa- tions. In Electricity 10 we learn elec- trical theory, study electrical diagramming, and plan a few practical circuits on paper. In Vocational Machine Shop, a three-hour course, we learn basic fundamentals one hour, and work in the machine shop the remaining two hours. In Auto Mechanics 10, we study fundamentals, main parts of the automobile frame, hand tools, and the internal combustion engine. 28 D. McCreary, P. Neal, and J. Quarandillo cut and measure boards for house eonslruetion. We learn the fundamentals of electricity, working; with actual circuits. Mr. Crosier demonstrates the automobile coil to F. Campbell and D. Cornelius in Auto Mechanics 10. H course which prepares boys for a future in drafting is the three-hour class. Vocational Drawing 12. Here many types of advanced drawing are painstakingly and :arefully executed; they cannot vary one one-thousandth pt an inch. A boy who is i good draftsman will have io trouble getting a job. n Vocational Drawing we must nake precise measurements. 29 News of Activities 9 v — iic TCal olH gjjjg Still Plans DemocracyContesT Qf Coni Big Rally Officer-: Pres., Jack Cittadine; Treas..

Spanish Club Promoting a better relationship between students, promoting the oral use of the Spanish language, acquainting the members with the customs of Spanish- speaking lands, and promoting a better student- teacher relationship — these are the purposes of the Spanish Club, under the sponsorship of Miss King. Many interesting meetings were planned for the members. Among some of the speakers in these meetings were Miss Crombie and Dr. Schilling. Eligibility for the Spanish National Honor Society is extremely competitive. A student must have studied Spanish for at least three semesters with a B-plus average, be in the upper fourth of his class, be a good high school citizen, and show interest in Spanish-speaking people. Meetings of the Spanish Club are held once a month. In these meetings business was discussed and plans for a trip to Chicago were drawn up.

The Follies were presented October 18 in the high school auditorium. To carry out the theme, a high school astro-physics class and its teacher took a field trip to the moon with amazing results. An interchange of talent from the people from the moon and the Earth added to the hilarity of the production. The talent from the moon was demonstrated for the Earth people by the Lunar Lovelies (a girls ' chorus line) , a boys ' chorus line, the Hoop-la girls, and the Moon Cats (Jim Haselwood ' s band) . The Earth people introduced the Moon men to Rock n Roll and. more specifically, to Elvis Presley. The boys chorus line performs for the Moon men. The bovs octet croons a Moon nielodv.

The play starred Carolyn Baum as Lotus Blossom and Walter Loney as Sakini with a supporting cast of Betty Grillo, Joe Griffin, Tom Schultz, and Tom Deputy. Authentic Japanese costumes also added a note of color to the production. The play centered around the antics of Sakini, an Okinawan interpreter, and the chaos he created for the U. S. Army. Because of Sakini, a teahouse instead of a school was built, with comical results supplied by various army officers. Walter Loney (Sakini) gives cricket i-at ' i- to Carolyn Baum (Lotus Blossom) Walter Loney argues with Tom Schultz (Col.

The Franks and guests pray during a Jewish holiday The All-School Play The Diary of Anne Frank by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett was this year ' s all-school play presented on February 12 and 14. Mr. Bussard directed the play with the assistance of the student director, Patti Waggoner. The story takes place in a small attic in Amsterdam wher the Frank and Van Daan families lived for over two and a half years hiding from the Mazis. Because this play was the heart-warming story of the growing up process of a young girl, it makes us realize the hardship of other people ' s lives. The cast included: Roger Ramsey as Mr. Frank, Betty Grillo as Mrs. Frank, De Vere Pliskin as Anne, Sally Wenger as Margot, Ron Kentas Mr. Van Dann, Diane Funderburk as Mrs. Van Daan, Dale Tarnowieski as Peter, Leonard De Dario as Mr. Dussel, Carl Benander as Mr. Kraler and Ruth West as Miep.

Rugged practice paid off for the Blazers as they won their first five games. A program of weight lifting and running gave the Blazers good physical shape as official practice time came around. About eighty seniors and under- classmen turned out on August 15. Because the gridders were in such good shape, they wer e able to concentrate more on the basic funda- mentals of football: blocking, tackling, and passing. The Blazers held two practices per day under Coach Janzaruk, until school started. David Haines joined the ranks as assistant B team coach, as a small but eager group of sophomores turned out for football. In the first game of the season, Phil Campagnoli scored two of Elkhart ' s touchdowns and passed for two more while leading the Blazers to a 34-6 victory over F.W. North ' s Redskins. Touchdowns by Moyese Williams, Bob Held, Ted Jackson, Harold Hansborough, Phil Turnock, and Duane Turnock proved to be too much for St. Joe, as the Blazers trounced the Indians 39-13. Duane ' s 46 yard interception run for a T.D. was the highlight of the game. Reading from left to right: Football Coaches; Rollie Hoover, John Janzaruk.

Blazers beat Goshen; rout Fort Wayne Central, The Blue Blazers extended their season win streak to 3 in a row by halting Goshen ' s 3-game win streak. After the opening kick-off bounced off a Blazer line- man, Goshen recovered and scored in fourteen plays, to take the lead 7-0. E.H.S. marched to the Redskin ' s 31 yard line and fumbled, Goshen recovering. The joy of the Redskins was short-lived, however, as Jim Stewart intercepted and returned the ball to his 38. Ted Jackson and Phil Turnock carried to the 1, and Camp wedged into paydirt. A Goshen drive bogged down on the E.H.S. 36 yard line and Elkhart took over. Camp passed to Buzz for the score.

Coach Max Bell and assistant Coach Joe Harvey assigned the rebounding duties to the " big " boys; center 6 ' 2 " Wally Summers, and forwards, Steve Reim and Dale Fonner, both six feet tall. Six seniors and five junior made up the Blazer basketball squad. Summers battles for the hall. 76 Start, the Blazers won two, and then The Blazer ' s first venture of the season was against East Chicago Roosevelt Rough Riders. Although both teams played a shaky first half, the Blazers put on a second half drive that gave them their first victory, 50- 43. Veteran Steve Reim hit a terrific 53 ' from the field to lead the Blazers with 23 points. Next the Bellmen downed the suprisingly strong Bulldogs of Nappanee. The Blazers ' poor field goal percentage and the Bulldog ' s terrific free throw percentage made the game a tight contest. A free throw by Wally Summers in the final moments gave the Blazers a 50-49 edge over the county rival. East Chicago Washington, one of the tallest and toughest teams in the state, invaded the Blazers ' home court to hand them the first loss of the season, 69-52. The following week the travel-weary Blazers were edged by the Columbus Bulldogs, 69-63. This evened the Blazers record at two and two. The hard-fighting Blazers opened their Eastern NIHS conference basketball season with a 60-54 victory over LaPorte. It was the third win in five starts for the Bellmen.

After leading 49-30 midway into the third quarter of the Kokomo game, the Blazers submitted to Jimmy Rayl who swished through 24 points in the second half. The Blazers were ahead by one point but a long shot from the side by Thurston clinched the game for Kokomo. The Blazers again ran up against a one-man team in the name of Ron Zalewski of S. B. Washington. However Elkhart ' s balanced scoring was enough to make up for it and the Blazers defeated Washington 80-67. Ft. Wayne ' s high-riding Central Tigers, rated 7th in the state, were the victims of the Blazers 47 ' field goal shooting. Paced by Steve Reim ' s 31 points, Elkhart spilled the Central Tigers, 57-53. Michigan City ' s conference-leading Red Devils had a scare when the determined Blue Blazers fought back from an 11 point deficit to within four points of City ' s score.

Although Clay ' s Roger Anglemeyer dumped in 30 points, the balanced scores of Talbert, Summers and Reim with 17, 16, and 15 points, respectively, more than made up for it as the Blazers won 61-48. The Blazers with Wally Summers out with the flu and several others weak from effects of the flu, blew a first-half lead and lost to South Bend Adams, 58-52.. With this game they avenged the loss to Elkhart in the ' 58 Regionals. The last regular season game was one of Don Swift, John Helfrick, anil Bill Raftree, our pep session the best of the year.

But the biggest job of all, the ticket sales, from the first game through the tourneys, was efficiently handled by Ivan C. Gill. This year marked the fifth year that EHS organized the Cheerblock.

Representative Becky Smith take a vote on a proposed Student Council measure in homeroom 2 Juniors learn about vocations. Vice-president Harry Bragg leads a discussion on vocations in homeroom 205. 102 )f the Guidance Program n important part of the EHS guidance program, ie Guidance Council is composed of Mr. ' oodruff; Mr. Updike; the two deans, Mr. Rogers id Mrs. Fitzgerald; the six counsellors; Miss irkland; and Mr. Organ. Meeting once a week, lis council plans discussions and supervises ery part of school activities: curriculum, :tendance, activities, athletics, faculty- upil situations. Because the Guidance Council composed of the chairmen of the various uidance committees, it serves as a " frame " which irects the functions of the various guidance Dmmittees of the school. if course, an important part of the guidance •ork is program counselling. In the EHS ?t-up, the plan is that two counsellors guide class from the time they are sophomores until ley graduate. Naturally, as students discuss leir programs with their counsellors, they lso discuss personal problems. In this way, y the time we are seniors, our helpful counsellors now each of us pretty well. ne of the Guidance Committees, the homeroom : mmittee is composed of Mr. Kauffman, hairman; Miss McKeehan, seniors; Mrs. Miller, aniors; Miss Amsbaugh, sophomores. This ommittee plans all homeroom activities. A sponsor rom each class also belongs to the committee nd gives ideas in relation to class activities, a order to co-ordinate homeroom programs, the committee meets every month and plans next month ' s programs. Then each class chairman meets with the presidents and vice-presidents of all homerooms on that level and helps them plan their programs. When the programs are planned, the committee sends out a bulletin which lists the homeroom programs of that particular month. Student Council reports and topics for discussions are incorporated into these homeroom discussions. Homeroom programs for each class level are directed toward the interests of that particular class. Sophomore programs help students get acquainted with EHS: courses, activities, traditions. Junior programs follow the theme, " choosing our vocations. " In the senior year we have programs about our future plans, jobs or college. The purpose of the guidance committees is to make more extensive plans in the particular phases of the guidance program. The assembly committee plans various assemblies directed toward the betterment and development of the student. The activities committee directs extra-curricular activities: clubs and dances. Because of our guidance committees and our guidance program, EHS students find school life both pleasant and profitable. Sophs learn more about the school. Michele Schmalzried tells homeroom 321 about pep session procedure during a panel discussion. 103 C as Ron Papa discusses plans with the other Senior Class officers and the sponsors. Our Senior Year arrived at last: the most exciting, the most important — the last year for us, the Class of ' 59. As leaders we were in charge of the year- book and held key positions in the band, orchestra, and choir. Many of our classmates won top honors in speech contests, music contests and sports. Our first activity of the year was our play, " Teahouse of the August Moon. " Because the play had a larger, more appreciative audience than any other class play in recent years, we classified it as exceptionally successful. Ann Cleveland talks to a group of seniors about her trip to Finland. 104 of 1959 As we followed our Blazers through the football and basketball seasons, we realized ithat many seniors were playing for the last Itime on Rice Field or at the North Side Gym. This gave an added emotional impact to our pep isessions, and to our victories. Soon January arrived and we were busy ordering name cards, announcements, and choosing our caps and gowns. As we planned our Senior Day program, the Class of ' 59 achieved an artistic success. A special commit- tee wrote an original musical comedy, entitled " The Arabian Nights " , a fantasy. Combining their talents, they wrote the script, the music (assisted by Mr. Kilbert) and the lyrics for their songs. Oriental dance numbers were designed and directed by our classmates; others made the sets and costumes. Another group of hard-working seniors was responsible for the publishing of the Pennant Annual, which came out June 6. With Judy Goldsberry and Tom Deputy as editors, and Bill Rice as business manager, the 216 page book was delivered to 1,400 subscribers. Perhaps the most memorable part of our year was Commencement night when our loved and respected teacher Mr. Ivan C. Gill gave our Commencement address. Mr. Woodruff speaks to homeroom 18 on current school problems and practices. Homeroom 213 packs a Christmas basket. Homeroom 115 plans a program. 105 Class of GENE R. ADAMS MARGIE ALBAUGH CAROL J.

One of the highlights of spring was our class party, " The Buccaneer Bounce. " It was held at Studebaker Park. There was a treasurer hunt, tug of war, and supper. A special play was given and there was dancing of course. Then, at last came our prom. This year our prom had an oriental theme, Sayonara. On May 16, the North Side Gym was packed with couples enjoying this, our last project of our junior year. Class of 7960 All good juniors buy yearbooks. Homeroom 140 practices for ihe prom.

As we walked in the crowded halls gazing at the strange faces, we realized that at last we were members of Elkhart High School. Even though the staggered program rather " staggered " us, we became accustomed to being in class one hour and out the next. To begin organizing our class and our activities, we elected our officers. They were David Erne, president; Mary Jo Fortino, vice president; Sue Warford, secretary; Judy Sorg, treasurer; Nancy Keech, girls ' social chairman, and Matt Yek- nik, boys ' social chairman. During the winter we were busy with ball games and homework. Then came spring and parties. In April, we held our class party and in May, we had a picnic at McNaughton Park. As the school year closes, we are happily anticipating coming back to high school next fall to be " upperclassmen " and to have our fun with the new sophomores.
