THE CLASS OF 1928 Presents THE EIGHTH ANNUAL ELSTONIAN A Year Book of "The Isaac C. Elston High School Michigan Citg, Indiana For the Season of 1923 IwMl [mil lilffil Edited By Preston Calvert Under Business Management of Harmon Green Art Titles By Albert Striebel Photography By E. C. Calvert Directed By Miss Goldie ShepherdFOREWORD Our little book was not compiled with the idea of making it a literary masterpiece. The real purpose is to preserve in our graduates’ minds their honors, classmates, and athletic ability. This book today will not be nearly the fun it will be ten years from now. What fun it will be to thumb back and see what has become of your classmates! The staff has worked hard to put out this annual, and they hope that they have succeeded in giving their class a book of which it can be proud. THE STAFF STAFF PRESTON CALVERT.........

THE CLASS OF NINETEEN HUNDRED AND TWENTY EIGHT. DEDICATE THIS RECORD OF OUR HIGH SCHOOL ACHIEVEMENTS TO OUR PRINCIPAL. MR. M. L. KNAPP. WHOM WE HAVE ALL LEARNED TO APPRECIATE AND RESPECT DURING THE TIME HE HAS BEEN PRINCIPAL IN OUR HIGH SCHOOL. 3MR. MURRAY Mr. Murray, who was principal of our high school for a number of years has just finished his second year as superintendent of the Michigan City schools, and has proved himself an able successor to Mr. Keeler, who preceded him. Mr. Murray is well remembered by the majority of this year’s seniors, and his famous “M. C. M.” will never be forgotten. The class of 1928, joins in wishing him the best of luck in future undertakings as superintendent. 1THE MR. KXAPP Mr. Knapp—Last year we called him our new principal—this year we don’t call him our new principal, but our principal. Mr. Knapp is well liked by both faculty and student body, and is admired for the quick but firm grasp he has taken on school affairs. 5FACULTY A. J. PARSONS, A. B. History GEORGE IRGANG, Ph. B.

They were as “green” as freshmen usually are, and were the objects of the same number of well aimed jokes from the upper classmen. They elected Clifford Kirk as their leader, were entertained by the sophomores, and in the course of time, became sophomores themselves. Clifford Kirk was again elected president, and, as was the custom, the class entertained the freshmen. In 1926 they became juniors, feeling their superiority greatly. This year they elected the following officers: Preston Calvert, president; Clifford Kirk, vice president; Irene Wendt, secretary; Bernice Stark, treasurer. A successful play and an equally successful prom were given. And then—seniors! This year the class was led by Harmon Green, as president; John Gardis, vice president; Richard Chubb, secretary, and Frank Heger, treasurer. Once more the class gave a very successful play. The members of the Class of 1928 have always been prominent in high school affairs, providing officers for most of the clubs, and being ably represented in debating by: Harmon Green, Mike Lahey, Edward Lay, Bernice Stark, Eugene Timbrook, and Arnold Wiener. In athletics they were also well represented by the following: Football: Richard Chubb, Louis Sass, Charles Beebe. Carl Erickson, Robert Grimes, Robert Adamson, John Gardis, Frank Kubik, Andrew Kubik, Edward Lay, Henry Root, Arthur Schultz, Ben Slavin, Ford Keppen, Bruce Martin, and John Paxton. Basketball: Frank Kubik, Charles Beebe, Louis Sass, Preston Calvert, Carl Erickson, William Flotow, John Gardis, Clarence Reick, Ben Slavin, Charles Trafelet, and Lester Cochran. Baseball : Preston Calvert, Arthur Christensen, Carl Erickson,, William Flotow, Louis Sass, John Gardis, and Edward Lay. Track: Roger Johnson, Ronald Johnson, Leroy Bartels, Frank Kubik, Carl Mross, Arthur Schultz, Ben Slavin, Lester Cochran, Fox'd Keppen, and John Paxton. Wrestling: Ai'thur Schultz, John Gai'dis, John Gleason, and Albei't Striebel. —Winifred Cooney 7MAPHLINK JOHXs X G. A. A.. 1 -2-0-4; Vice Pres. Sophomore Class; Forum. ‘{-4.

The brave crimson and white, And the ever willing spirit Which will never cease to fight For the honor of its pupils— The chance to help the right. We entered school as freshmen; As learned seniors we shall go, And the spark of M. C. H. S. Will be nursed into a glow When we realize the friendships That parting, hurt us so. “Ashes to ashes” and “dust to dust”— Those words do not mean that our minds will rust, Rut simply that when we are old and grey, Our memories will recall to us Commencement Day. —Edward I ay. e----- CLASS SONG Now our journey’s ended, We must say good-bye. Though hard the path we wended, Often wondering why— We shall miss the friendships, And the ties that bind, Rut ne’er shall we forget them, In the new ones we may find. Chorus Where-e’r we go, be it far or near, You, M. C. Hi, always will be dear, Your glorious colors, the crimson and white, May they give us courage to win in every fight. —Ethel Miller. 31CLASS WILL We, the class of 1928, of the Isaac C. Elston High School, of Michigan City, County of LaiPorte, State of Indiana, of the United States of America, having for a period of four years existed as infirmaries of Michigan City High School, hope the end is approaching; so do hereby, draw up, publish, and pronounce, this our last will and testament which same shall nullify all other wills made during same period of seeming liberality.

In witness whereof, we have hereunto set our hand and seal this 1st day of June, A. D. 1928. 32 Class of 1928, By Mike Lahey.CLASS PROPHECY Ben and I were enjoying ourselves one night, trying to out-guess the Ouija board—In time we hit upon the happy idea of using the Ouija Spirit to do the class prophesying. So, if you are incensed, or if there is any blame to be meted out by you, we will only pass the buck to that effervescent Genius of the Ouija. “What shall this person’s position in society be in 1945?” was the question; and hence we have the answers. The bare details: Mr. Green is a United States senator, and makes phonograph records in his spare time. Richard Chubb and Frankie Heger are national hop-scotch champions. Johnnie Gardis lately bought out the Tivoli Cafe and runs it under the name of the Greasy Spoon. Carl Erickson has been suffering from too much night life; he has moved to LaPorte. Ben Slavin is Supreme Dragon of the Knights of the Great Forest. Eldon Kilnowitz is an artist, working at present with Mr. Kanney. Irene Wendt is now head-waitress at Kelsey’s Ice Cream Emporium. Merle Papineau has taken Doris Blake’s position on the Chicago Tribune. Bill Flotow has succeeded Lon Chaney in his position in filmdom. Carl Mross often doubles for Mr. Flotow. Huge grape farms south of here are owned, gardened, and assimilated by Charles Trafelet. A1 Striebel is suffering from painters’ colic, after having attempted to paint a life size picture of Bill Kenefick’s galoshes. Alfred Kahl is chief assistant to William M. Hellar on his estate east of town. Ed Lay makes clean-up after clean-up daily in the busiest part of the city’s business section. John H. Gleason has a contract job at the M. C. prison making a few changes on heaps of huge stones, which action will undoubtedly help much in the development of roads in this locality. Christine Wojeske is making herself rich and famous as a contributor to Smart Set magazines. Mr. Knapp is about to pension Jim Root and let him go. A new censor for Mack Sennet bathing beauty comedies has been chosen in the person of Earl Geleske. Bob Adamson is a doctor of medicine, and has combined with Redpath Mortuary, rumors have it. Pep Calvert, a dry agent, is also in the syndicate. Art Schultz has the job of mattress-tester in Moreland’s Furniture Store. Margaret Williamson makes a livelihood posing as artist’s model for Wiener, Roebuck aand Co., Chicago. Ronnie Johnson is piling up coin posing for Arrow Collar ads. Louis Sass is president of the United States. Nayciel Freese and Viola Beatty are teachers at Valparaiso University. Madeline Johnson is now living off her alimony from Senator Green, and expects to go into the movies as Mike Lahey’s leading lady. Misses Mildred Rhoda and Marie Sabel were teachers at M. C. H. S. but recently have been advanced to Kalamazoo. Albert Kintzele has given his life over to research —he is now looking for a wealthy school-teacher. Hilda Jordan just swam the English Channel in a round trip; mere man hasn’t crossed one way for ten years or more. Erma Bennett and Florentine Luchtman are engaged in a national campaign to reinstate the word “obey’’ in the marriage ceremony; but the groom must say it. Eugene Timbrook and Howard Mosher, live as hermits in the west dunes. Dorothy Southard and Winifred Cooney are chorus girls in Marvin Zeese’s Follies. Elta Westphal runs the Fresh Water Dairy. . . . —John Gleason. 33THE WHOLE TOWN’S TALKING The class of 1928 chose for its Junior play, “The Whole Town’s Talking,’’ and presented it in the Junior High Auditorium on Thursday, January 20th, 1927. The play was considered the best Junior class play given in many years, and had the large audience in continual laughter. Preston Calvert held down the leading role as Chester Binney, who loved Ethel Simmons, but because of his “mid-victorian” manners could not impress Ethel, who was portrayed by Mable Brant. Mr. Simmons, played by Frank Heger, decides to help his young partner in winning his daughter, and so the two fake up a love affair between Chester and a movie queen. Everything goes along well until Letty Lythe, (Bertha Westphal) the movie queen, makes a personal appearance in the home town, and then the complications set in. Miss Lythe finds out about the faked love affair and decides to visit Simmons’ home. Her visit puts Mr. Simmons and Chester in a tight hole. The condition is explained to Miss Lythe who decides to help the two; things go along smoothly for about two weeks until Donald Swift, Letty’s fiance, makes his appearance. Donald (Ed Lay) is of a very jealous nature and vows to give Chester a beating. A fight in the dark ensues, and Chester hides behind a curtain while Roger Shields (Harmon Green) and Swift, neither knowing the other, fight each other; after they had knocked each other out, Chester appears as conqueror and everything is “hotsy totsy”. The play was coached by Miss Goldie Shepherd who has exceptional ability as a director of plays. 34“SEVENTEEN” “Seventeen” was presented as the Class of ’28’s Senior play and was heralded as a decided success. The leading part was held by Harmon Green, and Miss Winifred Cooney as Miss Lola Pratt played opposite. The story concerns a boy of 17, who wants to act “grown up”; he objects to all silly things and nicknames. He craves a dress suit, and the hardships he has to endure to get it keep the audience in a convulsive mood. Added to Willie’s troubles is his kid sister Jane, who was perfectly portrayed by Marie Sabel. Besides his trouble in getting the dress suit he is in love with Lola Pratt, who keeps him and the rest of the boys in a daze. One of the biggest laughs of the evening’s entertainment was the serenade scene of Willie and Johnnie Watson, played by Preston Calvert; these two young fellows serenade Miss Pratt and with their singing and antics provided much mirth for the audience. Mr. and Mrs. Baxter, acted by Mike Lahey and Na.vciel Freese, added much to the success of the play, and Frankie Heger as Joe Bullit was a riot. Bob Adamson had the part of George Crooper, and acted his part very well. Genesis, the colored servant, was played exceedingly well by Arnold Wiener. Others who added to the success of the play were, Fern Krueger as May Parcher, Ed Lay as Mr. Parcher, Alfred Kahl as Wallie Banks, Ruth Wilhelm playing Miss Boke, and Miss May Brooks played by Florentine Luchtman. The play was coached by Miss Goldie Shepherd and was a decided success. 35STAFF « ehS LSTONIASPORTS There is an old saying, “To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.” This was M. C.’s year for the reaction. After having a very successful year in 1926 and ’27, Michigan City’s athletics received a decided reverse in 1927 and ’28. Doubtless if we tried, a number of very satisfactory alibis could be manufactured. However, as our one endeavor in this line we can excuse ourselves only on the grounds that “old man Jinx” followed us a little too closely. The fellows who played on the various teams all did their best in trying to win, and when we lost it surely was not Andy Gill’s fault either, but merely that our opponents were better. One quality which stood out in all of the athletic contests and deserves special mention is the sportsmanship which our fellows displayed at all times—win, lose, or draw. That’s what counts. Old M. C. H. S. has always prided herself on the type of athletes that she turns out, and though the season was not entirely successful, nevertheless the fellows who played on the various teams are up to the Crimson and White standard in every way. Andy Gill is to be congratulated on the way he handles the stupendous amount of work that he has to do. This year we were handicapped by the smallness of the men on our teams, but what they lacked in brawn they made up for in fight and zip. M. C. H. S. always goes down fighting. 37F.

The next game, to have been with East Chicago, was cancelled. After resting a full week they took on South Bend, and after making three touchdowns that did not count, our fellows allowed South Bend to triumph. After the bitter defeat of the South Bend game, the team was never the same. The next Saturday, Froebel walked all over our bewildered fellows and won by an over-whelming score. The next week was LaiPorte and the fellows got together and laid for them. LaPorte never had a chance, their team was literally swept oflf its feet by the fierce charging of our outfit who demonstrated that they were superior to LaPorte in football; and thereby kept the large silver loving cup offered for a three-year supremacy. A day or two later M. C. H. S. was stunned by the news of Sylvester Kaiser’s death. Sol, as he was known to the fellows, had played a great game the preceding Saturday and was well liked by the whole school. Under this cloud and without the services of tw’o other regulars, M. C. played Horace Mann and tied at one touchdown apiece. Before the game, while the two teams stood at attention, M. C. rendered tribute to its fallen athlete by sounding taps from mid-field. The next Saturday M. C. played Whiting on a wintry field and was defeated by one point. The following Saturday, Hammond came to M. C. and after a terrific contest (Continued on page 40) 38Standing: Clappy. Slavln, Erickson, Keneflck, Burnett, Powers Setting: Sass. Jackson, F. Kublk, (Capt.), Crawford, L. Schultz BASKETBALL Michigan City’s Red Devils were pursued by a five point jinx. Out of thirteen games which were lost, eight of them were lost by not more than five points. Game after game would go into an overtime-ronly to be lost by one or two baskets. In the first game M. C. took Three Oaks down by a doubled score. South Bend came next and managed to scratch out a four point decision. Valpo, the following week also won a show game by four points. Then Mishawaka at home won by a seven point advantage. The Whiting game came next, and had it not been for a blow up on the part of our fellows the game would have been ours. The highly tooted East Chicago team was next in line and they were held to a thirty to eighteen lead after having an average of forty-some odd points per game against the preceding teams they had played. The following game with Froebel was a heartbreaker. After outplaying and outscoring the Froebel quintet for a great part of the game, three of M. C.’s regulars were put out on personal fouls and Froebel won by four points in the last two minutes of play. Elkhart invaded M. C. next only to find pretty tough opposition. In the last part (Continued on page 40) 39FOOTBALL (Continued from page 38) which was played most of the time in mid-field, Hammond got the break which both teams were hoping for and won by one touchdown. The last game was played at Elkhart and after scoring a touchdown on the fast kick off, M. C. again was disheartened by an injury to Ed Cassidy, one of the star guards, who broke his leg. This misfortune took the heart out of the team and Elkhart won, four touchdowns to our two. SCHEDULE Home Games M. C. vs. Three Oaks ....................... M.

BASKETBALL (Continued from page 39) of the game, as other teams had before, they managed to get a five point lead and held it. The Crimson and White had their next game with their traditional rival, LaPorte. In all of the previous contests M. C. had lost games because of the size of their opponents whose taller players usually out jumped and out reached our smaller players. When they met LaPorte, however, they found taller fellows than ever before. The game was very fast and was marred by numerous fouls on both teams but LaPorte secured the lead early and held it till the finish. Score, 29-26. Hammond came to M. C. the following week and also won by three points but later were forced to forfeit because of an ineligible player. The Emerson game to have been next was cancelled. M. C. traveled to Goshen and again was forced to accept a five point defeat. The Peru team was next, and they won a very close game. The following game was with Emerson and they made the largest score that was held against M. C. In the Plymouth game the next Friday the Crimson Flash hit its stride and made up for the preceding week’s defeat by walloping the Pilgrims, 40 to 16. (Continued on page 41) 40WRESTLING Michigan City’s Wrestling team also made a poor showing, winning one meet from South Bend. . . Art Schultz, the captain, however, went down to the state meet, after winning the sectional, and placed second in the finals for the 165 lb. weight. TRACK The track team is inexperienced as yet, but prospects point towards a very good year. With the material Andy has a good team should result. BASEBALL The baseball team should also have a successful year. Several veterans are back and in the practices held so far the fellows looked pretty good. Here’s hoping. BASKETBALL (Continued from page 40) The last game of the season was again with LaPorte. Little need be said of this game except that M. C. was clearly outclassed by an inspired LaPorte team. The fellows fought hard, but the big LaPorte players had it over them and won, 40-25. SCHEDULE •Home Games M. C. vs. Three Oaks ... M. C. vs. South Bend .. M. C. vs. Valpo ..... M.
