THE ELSTONIAN M. C. HI “Our Ship” Each graduating class that leaves This good old school so dear, Is scattered among other schools, And places far and near. Some will have souvenirs to keep To aid their memory, When they think of the school so dear To them, to you and me. Some too will keep Elstonians; Its jokes and photographs Will bring some tears, but better yet T’will call forth many laughs. “Aw Shoot!” I’ll need no souvenirs Nor photographs I guess, To help recall my happiest days In old M. C. H. S.! 2 —Mamie HeiseTHE FIFTH ANNUAL ELSTONIAN The voyage of the ship SEPTEMBER, 1924 To JUNE, 1925 Presented by THE GLASS OF 1925DEDICATION With Best Wishes and a “Bon Voyage” through life, we dedicate this book to our captain—-MISS MAGDALENE SCHMITH The Pilot and Crew 4MR. KEELER “Our Admiral” With Him who counts the sands And holds the water in His hands. We know a lasting record stands Inscribed against this name. MR. TALYOR MR. MACK MR. HUTTON THE SCHOOL BOARD “Our Lieutenant Commanders” We live for the cause that lacks assistance For the wrong that needs resistance For the future in the distance And the good that we can do 5MR. MURRAY “Our Commodore” His life is gentle; and the elements So mix’d in him that Nature might stand up, And say to the world This is a man! 78uriHIlB TO THE TEACHERS— “Our Lieutenant Commanders” “In this world, the one thing supremely worth having is the opportunity to do well and worthily a piece of work of vital consequence to the welfare of mankind.”—Theodore Roosevelt. Teaching is probably one of the greatest opportunities to do this thing that Roosevelt says is the supreme thing worth doing. It is not only his opinion, but Mr. Murray, in a talk to the Seniors one day, said, also, that the greatest profession, in the world, is teaching. He pointed out the fact that without teachers there would be no doctors; without teachers there would be no lawyers, (that might prove a benefit to humanity) ; that without teachers there would be only ignorance. Do you realize how important they are? Yes? Then there is one thing more. A teacher in our high school said to me one day, “Teaching is the most thankless job I know of.” When you think about it, it is true, isn’t it? Do you ever thank your teacher for some bit of knowledge you have gained during class? Very, very seldom! I have known some students who actually thought their teachers stayed awake nights, thinking of work for them to do. I believe they called them “slave-drivers” or some such name. But they aren’t. Just do for one day, what I did for one week—teach a class. The slightest word of appreciation for what you have done, you will grab at like a drowning man grabs for a life preserver. Try it! “No one can be a good student who has not been a teacher.” (Also quoted from one of our teachers.) Think about this and try being a good student to show your appreciation for your teachers. It might work! Katherine Ohming 910ELIZABETH C. LEE Science B. S. Ohio State University LELA TROUTNER Latin and English A. B. Olivet College RUSSELL B. TROYER Science A. B.

B. GIFFORD Alumni 20Charles Henry Do( Ohming Dolores Thomas LeRoy Michaels Presi lent Vice President Secretary Treasurer Dear Old M. C. Hi: Our ship sails soon. We must leave the ship M. C. H. S., and go our way on different ones. We must part from our old friends, our buddies and our sweethearts. Many, we will never see again, but memory is very sweet and we shall use many of our spare moments, thinking and dreaming of the good old days of yore. The Seniors of ’25 are both glad and proud that we are the last ones to graduate from the “old school.” We know that the 192G graduates will be just as proud of the new school when they graduate next year. But after all we who have gone to the “old school” are bound to it by a tie which can never be broken. We are going out into the world to man our own ships—but in the depth of our hearts we long to, once more—just for a while—belong to that old ship—M. C. H. S. We’ll never forget for a moment our Old Loyalty Song. We’ll never forget for a moment our teachers, our principals, our superintendent, and not for a moment will we forget our Athletes—good luck to you and remember this—“When that great • score is written against your name it does not write what you won or lost but how you played the game.” “ALL ABOARD”! The signal has come, our time is short. Good-bye teachers, good-bye Freshies, Sophs, and you Juniors who are to take our places—good-bye everyone. “Our School, may she always be in the right but Our School, right or wrong.” Good Luck, The Pilot and the Class of ’25. 2122LOUISE MARY GIELOW FLORENCE MARY ROBINSON “Flo” KENT WHEELOCK HASELWOOD ELDORA CECELIA ERICKSON FLORENCE KRAMER JOHN HAROLD WILCOX “Jiggs” ELIZABETH M.

Their breakfast room was exquisite. The Reed furniture was the very best. A beautiful Palm was the only plant in the room. The peace was broken when the Bell at the old Southgate began to Tingley. A Gard rushed in and told King James that there wasn’t a Gill left on the Troutner, a stem left in the Eikenberry so Chef Smith cooked a Peck of prunes for the wedding of King Jame’son, Atchison, to Sebesta. the daughter of King Liefel and Queen Vorees, of Munson. There was Mutch excitement when King Jame’son ran away in the Kelly with the Shepherd’s daughter Llewellyn and was married by the Parson McNeilan. When the king learned the truth he cried, “Nafe! Nafe!” but my Luck is poor, but never fear Connell bring them back. The trumpeters Schmith, Krueger, and Shaeffer blew their trumpets as the couple came through the gates to the castle. The Shepherd’s daughter was so charming that she soon won her way into the heart of the King. The page Walton was ordered to spread the news among the people that there would be a dance on the Lee that evening in honor of the newlyweds who were to leave the next day for Troyer Venice. 32LEONARD LANDWIRTH “Our Leader” THE MIDSHIPMEN” 33Am THE JUNIOR CLASS The Junior Class is a peppy one. Can’t you tell by the names of the officers? These leaders have been working all year to make the class a distinguished one and with the aid of the loyal members, they have succeeded very well. The Juniors claim some of tin very best athletes in M. C. Hi. Nearly every member of the tra'k team belongs to this illustrious Junior Class. This class will be well representel in both football and basketball next year. Cood luck to you! Last December the class put on the Junior Jamboree, a dance which brought back the good o'd days when things were booming. In January the class presented “Honor Bright”—a play well worth seeing. Miss Reed was the coach. The class of ’26 has chosen a ring and pin for standardizing the choosing of this emblem each year. . We have rumors that this snappy group intends to give the Junior Prom at the Spaulding Hotel, in honor of the graduating class. Quite Ritzy! ! ! The Seniors are very grateful to the Juniors, and we wish to thank them right now for the wonderful time we’re going to have. Good luck to you mighty Juniors, and may you become mightier Seniors! 34JUNIORS Carl Atkins Lawrence Benson Omar W. Bowers John Cooney John Carrell Geo.

C. basketeers had a very successful season even though they didn’t win the sect:onal. As in football Coach Gill had to build a team out of new material. There were eight lettermen, Captain Henry, Francis Leggett, Lawrence Benson, William Wilkie, Selvin Horan, Forrest Slaughter, Mike Farroh and Gene Richards. Henry and Leggett are the only two we lose by graduation, so next season ought to be even more successful. SECOND TEAM Flotow, McIntyre, Robinson, James and Atkins—forwards. Keppen and Slavin—Centers. Warner and Cochran—Guards. These men formed the lightweight squad. They had a very successful season and lost only one game to Froebel. Later in the season they defeated Froebel. M. C. H. S................25 Crown Point................ 13 M. C. H. S................ 32 Hobart ..................... 17 M. C. H.

The following team, Chas. Henry and Howard Baine , pitchers; Heinie Krueger, catcher; Paul Krueger, first base; Wm. Voltz. second base; Ed Sights, left field; Ray Cochran, center field; Wilbur Heuring, right field. The games played were M. C. H. S. 4, vs. Wal-kerton, 4 here. M. C. H. S. 1, vs. Laporte, 5 h re and Laporte 10, vs. M. C. H. S. 5, there. This year there will be an interclass league and no representative team. With suitable facilit'es M. C. H. S. will ent- r the Nor hern Indiana league in 1926. M. C. H. S. had a successful track season. Capt. Louis Lauer went to the state meet in th 220 hard low hurdles and Jordan Hays in the mile. The track men are Lauer, Shon, McAllester, hundred yard dash. Atkins, half mile; Hays, mi'e; Cochran, high jump; Stanlov Lauer, Wm. Wilkie and Glenn Spero pole vault. L. Lauer shot put and McAllester and Lauer broad jump. The schedule contained four meets, three in Gary and one in Laporte. We won the dual meet in Laporte, taking most of the first places. In the Gary meets we won enough points to be considered strong contenders. The schedule this year contains five meets three in Gary, including the sectional meet, one in Laporte and one in South Bend. With Capt. Wilkie, Horan, Crumpacker, Farroh, Atkins, Slavin, Henry, Shon, and many new track stars M. C. will have a crack team. M. C. won second place at the track meet in Gary. 50 STATE CHAMPION BASKETBALL TEAM MARGARET PURVIS-HAZEL KRAMER— OPAL CALAHAN—Forward GERTRUDE PEARSON—Forward MARY HELEN ANN MORRIS— MANETTE COAN— MILDRED BURNETT—Guard MARIE COAN—Center JAMES—Capt.

Well it has and it played for several games and pep meetings and at a Rotary luncheon. They also played for the musical comedy “Topsy and Eva.” The first social event of the season was of course the Freshman-Sophmore party. There was a program, dancing and refreshments. Every one had a dandy time. Next came the Crimson Comet Mixer. Every one loves a dance after a game and we all showed our appreciation for the dance by having a rip roaring good time. GLEE CLUB Dot Ohming—President Lois Redding—Vice President Sarah Frances Orr—Secretary and Treasurer The Glee Club won a prize for singing at the HL-Y Hallowe’en party, they sang Christmas carols at the H. B. Christmas party. They put on an Operetta “Spring” for a Convocation program and the operetta “Miss Carruthers Returns.” It was good. Oh! that Hallowe’en party the Hi-Y gave. A snappy program! Games! Costumes! A girls’ party gave us a chance to act as crazy as we wanted to without being bothered with any boys. The Junior Jamboree was a peppy Mixer, only if it hadn’t been so cold. But then that made it peppy because we had to dance fast to keep warm. Miss Bell and Miss Vorees gave a lovely party for their God-children, we could have gone. ♦ We wish GIRLS’ CITIZENSHIP LEAGUE Mary Helen James—President Genevieve Bryan—Vice-President The Girls’ Citizenship League is a new organization. They gave a party for the girls and did some good work when they each took a Freshman girl under their wing. » THE LATIN CLUB Philip James—President Donald Ward—Vice-President Charlotte Rogers—Secretary and Treasurer John Morris—Sergeant-at-Arms The Latin club is an interprising organization. They had a Latin contest and gave a most delightful luncheon for the visiting Latin teachers and students. They promise fine things for the future. DRAMATIC’S CLUB Leonard Landwirth—President Dot Ohming—Vice-President Dorothy Misener—Secretary Jane Karpen—Treasurer The Blackfriars gave us several One Act plays this year. Keep up the good work. 56THE BOYS’ ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION Just as the G. A. A. supports the girls’ athletics so does the B. A. A. support the boys’ athletics. Our athletics have been strengthened greatly ever since the organization came to the front. The B. A. A. backs football, basketball, baseball, track and now we even have a tennis team which is backed by this strong club. We wish the best of luck to this club and we hope that in the future it may have another group of live wire officers as it has this year. May this club continue to grow, may it continue to uphold the athletic glories of old M. C. Hi, and may it promote good sportsmenship. real school spirit and undying loyalty to “the best school ever.” 15 Rahs! B. A. A. 57LOIS MARIE GENEVIEVE MARGARET REDDING COAN BRYAN HAVILAND Vice-President President Secretary Treasurer THE G. A. A. The Girls Athletic Association, otherwise known as the G. A. A. sponsored the girls athletics. They gave the girls basketball team letters for their good work. You know they are Champions of the State. They helped put on that memorable Football-Basketball Banquet. More power to them! They not only sponsored athletics but they also kept their club a live wire in M. C. H. S. in other things too. There is more to write about the G. A. A. every year. A short time ago it was a little, insignificant organization—but—like a need—it grew and grew—until now—it is one of the most important organizations of M. C. High. Does it afford pleasure and interest? Well—judge for yourself— nearly every girl in school is a member. The officers have done much toward making this year’s program a success. So far it has been as follows: In the warm sunny month of September a large number of ambitious girls decided to take a hike. They started early one morning, dressed for the occasion and they certainly made a classy appearance. They hiked along the beach and really hiked. Unlike most girls’ hikes, which end up in riding, they arrived at Grand Beach—their destination—on foot! ! ! Everyone reported a good time. The G. A. A. gave a Kid Party for the girls. There was a program in the auditorium, then a dance and games in the Barn—all the little girls wore short gingham dresses, hair-ribbons, and socks, Even the teachers indulged. And of course you remember the Mixer they gave. What fun we had that night! 58BOOSTERS’ CLUB Sam Haines—President Sarah Frances Orr—Secretary Dot Ohming—Vice President Helen Bartholomew—Treasurer One of the livest of our live organizations—THE BOOSTERS—they made us what we are today. Perhaps you don’t know it but they sponsored the Debating team, they put on the musical comedy “Topsy and Eva” for the benefit of the orchestra and the band, they were directly responsible for most of the busses that took all “ye” athletic fans to the games out of town, they sold those good looking M. C. H. S. emblems, they helped to boost the ticket sales, and remember the peppy Mixer they gave? That isn’t all they did either and Oh! those good looking sweaters they bought. 59urtHlE IB THE CAFETERIA “Our Filling Station” THE JUNIOR HI-Y Philip Janies—President Wilfred Robinson—Vice President Edward Stibbe—Sec. and Treas. The Junior Hi-Y is an organization of younger boys and they are going to be a peppy bunch. This year they gave us a good Convocation program. They have lots of fun among themselves at their exclusive suppers. Mrs. Bell is their faculty advisor and Mr. Davis their instructor. 60-TrtHIlB !■ THE MUSIC CLUB Margaret Haviland—President Dot Ohming—Secretary Katherine Ohming—Vice Pres. Dolores Thomas—Treasurer. In the Music Club the musical members of the High School find an opportunity to display their musical talents and to show their appreciation for good music. ORCHESTRA The Orchestra is just a growing organization but they can play. We know because they played for several Convocations and for the musical comedy “Topsy and Eva.” Mr. Johnson is the director. 61THB H!-Y CLUB President—Joe Stipp Vice President—Eddie Sights Secretary and Treasurer—John Crumpacker At the beginning of the term the Hi-Y club started out on a program calling for a great deal of action. At the start the club was small and needed new blood to carry out its intentions for the following year, so about ten new fe’lows were put thru the rites of initiation. On Hallowe’en night the club gave a party for the s hool which proved quite a success. Later during the semester the club nut on an educational convocation program in an endeavor to bring its name and influence before the school. As a whole the club did not wage a four C’s campaign but each boy was urged to use his nersonal influence on his friends to this effect. During the Mid-year holidays an alumni banquet was hold at which time the Hi-Y was encouraged to re-establish the old Hi-Y News next year. Later it resolved to do this. Besides several small social functions the club topped off the year with an election of officers for the ensuing year. A real campaign was fought out in true political views. The Hi-Y’s greatest activity proved to be the Jamboree. Hi-Y clubs from the neighborhood cities attended and participated in the athletic contests during the day. The local club came out ahead in all the games. 62CRIMSON COMET STAFF John Crumpacker—President Edward Williams—Secretary Margaret Haviland—Vice Pres.

St. Joe will have to go home with the small end of the score. 14-12. (We think the “derbies” must have helped?) Seemed good to chase down the street in that snake dance.

Aren’t they just too adorable for words ? 25— We couldn’t afford to see “Red Grange I” play so Elkhart brought us a “Red Grange II.” No wonder they won 47-0.......Did you see the Kiddie Kar race?

Oh, we wish we were Hi-Y’s so that we could make a nice handsome boy get down on his knees to us. 29 Mr. Keeler gave us one of his nice funny talks today.

Laporte won! Please don’t ask us to say any more about it. We still feel pretty bad... Wasn’t it pretty the way that ball went through the windshield ? 25—“Where Do We Go From Here?” That’s what Mr. Day talked about and we liked it, we did.

We want more Convocations like that.....Girls had a party. 11— We told you we would get to do something you U. S. History students couldn’t do. The Commercial Classes went to the bank.

C. defeats Plymouth. 21— ....and we have with us the “Holidays.” 29— A bad penny always turns up so here we are again with all our Christmas presents we could possibly wear. Oh, fo’ goodness sake.

Oh, we had a good time, we did. 12— Well, Freshies, you aren’t so green now. You are a whole semester old. 13— Exams! 14— Exams! 15— Well, that’s that! We’re almost a wreck. 16— Whee! We didn’t Hunk a thing. It would have been disastrous for us Seniors if we had. We lost to Froebel, 39-19. But they gave us a dandy dance afterwards to make up for it. Did you know that it was a High School orchestra that played ? 19— New classes and, Oh, we feel so mixed up. 20— Will we ever get out of this thing alive? We’ve got all kinds of conflicts. 22— Ah! Ha! The Junior play—“Honor Bright”—wasn’t it good? The Juniors surely know how to put things across. The Red Peppers is a good little jazz orchestra. More luck to you! 23— My goodness but it was exciting! There was a tie and they played over-time and—WE won! Hammond you surprised us. 29— After watching Miss Sebesta’s gym class perform we are able to account for all the athletic girls in high school. 30— Such a crowd! Such a game! We didn’t feel much like a dance afterwards. Laporte you won. “We hope you’re satisfied.” FEBRUARY 2—Something new. An open period. Like it? 4— We’re wise now. You can’t tell us anything about rattan, we know all about it. Mr. Redpath taught us. 5— Chemistry students climbed all the way up that great big gas tank. Puff-puff! We bet you were winded when you reached the top. 7—The girls know how to play Basket Ball too. Too bad Union Mills—38-5. 11— Girls!—Mr. Davis came back! Jr. Hi-Y you gave us a dandy program. 12— We’re celebrating Lincoln’s birthday—we’re going to school today. 13— Friday 13 ! ! ! and so much happened today. First of all, did you see the good looking Junior rings and pins?—Swell!—Unlucky for Froebel. We won, 22-21. Exciting? Yes, mam! 14— St Valentine’s Day! Don’t forget your Sweethearts. 18— We’ll say Mr. Johnson has got a pretty nice orchestra. Thanks for bringing it to us. 19— We thought we were going to have something over on the boys. A lecture that they couldn’t hear and then they got one that we couldn’t hear. Coises! Foilled again! 20— Would you notice the crowd? Just like the Tournament last year. We’re glad we had our tickets ’cause it was an interesting game even if we did lose. Did we give you a scare Laporte ? Cute emblems the Boosters sold weren’t they? 7221— Fort Wayne Central won too. But the girls beat Valpo, 12-2. 22— We got another one of those Sunday Holidays—it's Washington's birthday. 25—-Mr. Murray gave us a nice lesson in “A Message to Garcia." 27—The last game before the Tourney! We had a grand time on the bus and then Valpo won so we didn't feel so peppy going home. The girls beat Valpo again—this time, 12-5. MARCH 1— It came in like six lions, four wild cats, and five polar bears. Br-r-r-r-r. 2— Report Cards again and it seems like only two days since this semester started. 3— History students have still more movies. Honest we're so jealous....... 4— We were all set to hear the Inaugural address and then all we heard was some pretty band music. But it was nice, and over the radio too. 5— Mrs. Bell and Miss Vorees gave a party for their god-children. We wish our God-father would give us a party........A Senior. 5—Oh! how we do love tournaments, and here one is. We won too what's more. Now for tomorrow and Laporte. 7—We won some more and then we played Laporte and every one was so excited and we had a tie and then we played over-time and then...........you know the rest. 10— The G. A. A. have such darling monograms. 11— Miss Reed gave Convocation today and was it funny?.......Oh! My yes! 13—“Topsy and Eva" were so funny we nearly laughed ourself sick. And the girls' played Stillwell and our Spring vacation started. All in one day! Now we are going to sleep once more. Good-bye! 21—Our girls are pretty swift. Their Basketball team won 14-15 and are now State Champs! Pretty nice! 23—Back to school again! We had such a lovely cold spring vacation. Miss Lewel-lyn had her hair bobbed in honor of the occasion. Did you notice? 25—Also Miss Lewellyn's sponsor group gave us a dandy Convocation. 27—All the sponsor groups met today and we are quite thrilled over the idea. We think it's fine. Too bad our team lost their debate.......Better luck next time! 737475'OUR ADVERTISERS’ “We Thank You”OLLEGE and High School Annuals have come to be recognized as an institution.
