Text from Pages 1 - 88 of the 1929 volume:

The ElstonianCame Marquette To the woodlands of this region, Of this wild and unknown region, When this our land lay unexplored, Where dwelt the Pottawattomie In a year of the sixteen hundreds— Year seventy-five of the sixteen hundreds— Came a saint of the French people Ministering to the red-skinned Indian, Ministering to him soul and body. Here this man, Marquette, did come; Here Marquette did stop and preach, Marquette, who understood the Redman, Understood his speech, his needs, Understood all nature ’bout him, And was received into his midst.

Elston High School Michigan City, Indiana Edited by................................Lois Fraley Tinder Business Management of..........Ruth Herbert Supervised by...................Miss Goldie Shepherd Photography by.........................E. C. Calvert Engraving by...............Fort Wayne Engraving Co. Printing by.....................The Evening Dispatch [3]Foreword Many moons have we spent working, Playing, learning here together, In the walls of this our high school— This our high school by the lakeside Where the rippling, laughing water Whispers secrets to the dunelands. Now we’re leaving this our high school, Going out in all directions, Blazing each in his oivn manner. Carving out our different futures— Futures drab or futures brilliant. Life matters not except ’tis noble. But if along the road of life Its milestones find you weary, We hope that this our little book— This our little book of records, Records of our oivn achievements. Names and pictures of our teachers, Likewise of our friends and classmates— Will refresh you in your rumblings, Helping to recall to mind Memories of old M. C. High. Then, indeed, will we be happy, Accomplished be our earnest purpose, And all our efforts tvell rewarded. —The Staff [4]In APPRECIATION of his services as coach, advisor, and guiding influence in the lives of many of us, we the Class of 1929, respectfully dedicate this volume to “Andy” Gill.

S.” Having grown up, sc to speak, with this high school, we will ever cherish in our memories this picture. The Class of 1929 is the first class to graduate which started out as freshmen in this building. For four years, day after day, all our activities have centered around here; here have we entered, encountering hope and dispelling fear; here have characters been molded; and. greatest of all, here have been reflected all the dreams and noble thoughts of Youth. [8]Michigan City In 1840 How many hours have we stolen from cur studies and spent gazing in silent admiration at this beautiful picture ol early Michigan City! Our high school is indeed fortunate in the possession of this great painting which was the gift of Robert Grafton, the artist, and of the Michigan City Rotary Club. [9]“M. C. M.” Mr. Murray, our principal when we were freshmen, became superintendent cf schools, our “Big: Chief,” in 1926. Although now he is not directly connected with the high school, he has maintained a steady interest in the students, and we, in turn, hold a warm regard for him.Three years ago Mr. Knapp came here from Martinsville to take over the duties of principal of M. C. H. S. He has won for himself a place of profound respect in the life of the community as well as in that of the school. We, the Class of 1929, wish to express our appreciation for all that he has done for us in the three years he has been our principal. [11]A. J. PARSONS, Michigan City. A.

Class History The Class of ’29, following its many predecessors, has not been unusual in its organization and routine of activities. However, the type of individual character has made the class distinctive. During our first year we elected Wilbur Jurgensen president. The same year we organized a Freshmen Rooters’ Club, the officers of which were Otis Zahrn, president, and Georgan McLaughlin, secretary. The big event of the year was the party given us by the Class of ’28. When we were sophisticated sophs, our president was Frank Burnett; vice-president was Jimmy Ahlgrim; secretary, Marion Anderson; and treasurer, Georgan McLaughlin. By the time we were juniors things began to hum. Frank Burnett was elected president; Lois Fraley, vice-president; Marion Anderson, secretary ; and James Ahlgrim, treasurer. On January 26, we gave the play “The Genius.” In place of the customary prom we inaugurated the plan of a banquet followed by dancing. And now, our senior year is finished. Our senior officers are pictured above. Members of our class have been prominent in all the athletic activities, in the orchestra and band, the student government, clubs, and social functions. .. - ! ».

It played for the plays and various school entertainments, and on March 20 presented its first annual concert, which received great applause. After placing in the district and taking first in the state contest at Bloomington, it won second place in the national contest at Iowa City on May 18.

As a result, the Council aided m the selling of tickets for the tourney and took charge of selecting the lyceum numbers for convocation. The efficiency of hall duty has improved, and there has been a marked step forward in the promotion of citizenship in school life. The Council has been fortunate this year in the election of two very good chairmen, Howard Lowe and Jane Baker. Miss Engstrcm has been the able and competent faculty advisor of the Student Council and has been largely responsible for its smooth and efficient functioning. [42]Seated: Liuenthal, Groff, Carstens, Parsons Standing: Herbert, Fraley, Maurice, Robinson Absent: Burnett, Lange, Dostie, Jurgensen The National Honor Society The highest honor which the school can confer upon a student is election to the Honor Society. The student who has met the four distinctive requirements or high standards of the society, namely: scholarship, character, leadership, and service, indeed has achieved something of which to be proud. The officers of the Isaac C. Elston chapter were, for the first semester cf this year, Frank Burnett, president, and Frances Robinson, secretary. For the second semester, Allen Lilienthal was president, Ruth Herbert was elected vice-president, and Frances Robinson, secretary.“Charm" “Charm,” the play presented on November 9, by the Class of 1930, was so well received that the Juniors repeated its performance a second night. A clever comedy in itself, and so ably coached by Miss Shepherd, it met with great applause and success. THE CAST Mrs. Wilson............. Mrs. Harper............. Joe Pond..................

PfefTerle, Thorne, Coach Gill. Football Michigan City enjoyed a wonderful football season, winning 5 games and losing only 3. At the dedication of the new athletic field the team defeated Goshen 9 to 0. The Gillmen defeated Laporte, Whiting, Plymouth. Three Oaks, and lost to South Bend, Hammond, and Elkhart. Jurgensen was the captain this year and played a good game at right guard. Root played center and put up a good fight in all the games. This was Dave’s third year on the squad. We lose Dave by graduation. Karpen was regular right half back and was the man who was depended upon for good interference. Burnett was pilot and one of the mainstays of the team, punting and passing and doing most of the running. The team will feel his loss gieatly. Kenefick was regular left end and was the star of the dedication game by virtue of a 55 yard run for a touchdown, the first to be made on the new field. Bryan relieved Kenefick at left end after Bill’s injury in the Plymouth game. Ed played a fighting game. He will not be eligible for athletics next year. West, the regular left tackle, played a good game throughout the season. Kuchik played left guard. This was Pete’s first year, and he came through well. Sawa.va was che right tackle and played a consistent game throughout the season. Clappy played regular right end. He is co-captain next year. His pass snagging and tackling was an asset to the team at all times. Crawford, the fullback, has played for the last two years. His work defensively and offensively marks him as a consistent plaver. He is co-captain next year. Smith, the smallest man on the team, played left half. He ran back punts, and his clever dodging was a help to the team, the next two years. The following men made the all-conference team; Kenefick, Crawford, Burnett, and Jurgensen. Burnett made the all-state second team a quarterback. [48]  Seated: Clappy, Hirschmann, Janz, Crawfoid, Schultz. Standing: Evert, Sawaya, Ahlgrim, Coach Gill Basketball Michigan City had another tough season in basketball. The team was handicapped by the lack of material but fought hard and offered opposition to the best of its ability. The Red Devils opened the season by bumping Three Oaks. They dropped the next game to Valparaiso after a hard fought battle. South Bend beat the Red Devils at South Bend on the next Friday, and we dropped the next game to Mishawaka by a close margin. Whiting furnished the next opposition for the Red Devils and won after a tough game. East Chicago beat us in an easy manner the next week. Froebel invaded the Red Devil’s camp on the next Friday and downed them in easy fashion. The next week the Red Devils won from Elkhart and finally got their name in the wm column. Laporte traveled to Michigan City the next week and won; they showed a wonderful defense. Michigan City traveled to Hammond the next week and lost after a hard fought game. The team put up a great fight against Goshen but lost in the last few minutes. The next night Michigan City traveled to Peru and was defeated by a strong outfit. After a week’s rest the team went to Emerson. The Norsemen were “on" that evening and won by a good margin. The next week the Red Devils beat Plymouth by a good score. The next night Laporte gave us another setback. After a week’s rest the team met the strong Horace Mann outfit and suffered defeat. The next night Nappanee was barely able to win during the last few minutes of the game. This game ended the scheduled season This year for the first time in five years the sectional tournament was held in Michigan City. The team won the first two games it played but was defeated in the finals by Laporte. Thus ended a season, disastrous in the number of games won. but successful from the fight shown by the team, even though they were handicapped by the lack of height.

Gill. Risberg, Kachui. Baseball The baseball team bolstered by the return of practically all of last year's men. enjoyed a very successful season. Michigan City played in the Eastern Division of the conference, playing against South Bend. Laporte, and all other teams in that division. The team this year was composed of nine capable men who did their best at all times. Maeder and Rogers pitched with “Shorty” Schultz as catcher. Bartels acted as relief catcher. Kenefick played first. Whitlow worked around second with Shepherd at shortstop. Putz and Navrat worked well at third and second, respectively. Korn played left field with “Wibby" Rogers in center and “Husky” Enders in right. The team loses but three men by the graduation route, namely: Maeder. Enders, and Kenefick. The prospects for next year look mighty good. Gill.‘Redding and Johansen will be back next year to fill the vacancies. They worked well this year. The schedule was as follows: April 9—Plymouth. April 12—Laporte. April 16—South Bend. April 19—No game. April 23—Mishawaka. April 26—Nappanee. April 36—Goshen. May 3—Plymouth. May 7—Laporte. May 10—South Bend. May 14—No game. May 17—Mishawaka.

There were twro records broken and one tied in the first two track meets. Capt. Grandorf broke his own record in the first meet by 14 seconds and then on the following Saturday beat his new' record by ten seconds. The new' record is now four minutes and forty-six seconds. Grandorf also tied the record of two minutes, ei ht and three-fifths seconds in the half mile run. Eddie Evert, our other record breaker, ran the 440 yard dash in fifty-four and nine-tenths seconds, thus beating the old record. We were represented by two strong relays this year: the half mile team composed of Stevens, Crawford. Smith, and Karpen. and the mile relay team composed of Capt. Grandorf, Fausch, Oszuscik and Everts. The schedule for the 1929 season was as follows: Aoril 13—M. C.. Chesterton, and Wcstville. at home. April 20—M. C.. Laporte and Mishawaka, at home. April 27—County Meet at Laporte May 4—Conference Meet at Elkhart. May 11--Sectional at South Bend. May 18—State Meet at Indianapolis. Wrestling The wrestling team had three meets during the 1929 season: these being with Laporte, Lowell, and Elkhart and because of a lack ol more experienced men in the heavier classes, we were defeated by Lowell, 52-6. The team made practically a clean sw'eep in the lighter classes in each meet. Only two men reached the finals in the conference meet. They were Furst, hundred and ten pound champion of the conference, and Lilienthal. runner-up in the hundred and thirty pound class. [53]Girls’ Sports The girls played interclass games in the various sports throughout the year. Last fall hockey teams were organized and games were played on the athletic field. Alice Hein’s team won the first place by defeating Ruth Kemena’s team in the championship game. While the hockey games were still being played, basketball got under way, and after many hard fought games, Bernice Flotow’s team was the winner. In volley ball, which followed basketball, Annabell Cochran defeated Leah Hennard, thus winning the championship. The girls organized their baseball teams this spring and played till the end of the school term. Last fall seventy-one girls passed the first of the Athletic Badge Tests and received pins and certificates. Eleven girls succeeded in passing the second test. Only two, Bernice Flotow and Lenora Pollock, were awarded the badge of the third test. A track meet was held on the athletic field this spring. It was sponsored by the G. A. A., and about fifty girls participated. Bernice Flotow was high point man. She won two first places, a second and a third place. Elsie Anderson won the running broad jump, and Bernice Flotow took first place in the standing broad jump. In the high jump Marjorie Peters was first, and Lucille Janke took the honors in running.

D. 1929. “The Class of 1929“ [59]Class Prophecy One night in early October I sat before the dim light of an open fireplace trying to while away the last few hours of a pleasant evening in reading of the theories of a Russian philosopher regarding the forseeing of coming events. As I read on through the chapters. T became drowsy and fell into a dreamy stupor .... the theories and predictions of events to come flashed through my mind in a mass of confusion. Finally as I dozed off into a deep slumber, the faces of my classmates passed by me. one by one. Everything seemed changed! Their faces, although much older, were easily recognized .... slowly the procession passed by and each took a place in this dreamy world of the future. Some seemed humorous in their occupations, while others seemed in their chosen places, and as I dreamed on, a vivid picture unfolded before me. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Burnett were floating through the air of a beautiful Californian afternoon in an airplane. Their plane stalled, and they leaped from it in parachutes and landed on a barren stretch of land in the heart of the Rocky mountains. They hurried to a cabin and as they talked fxcitedly to the old man that lived there, their speech became audible and I listened in on them, thoroughly enjoying my dream. John Harbart proved to be the old man in the cabin, and he was quite elated over the visit of Frank and Marion. In the course of their conversation Frank and Marion told of their recent visit to the Wilkinson studios in Hollywood where Bettv Ccnrad’s latest scenario. "Burning Passion” was being featured with Beryle Flvm being featured as the »-ed-headed heroine and Bill Schmitt as the passionate hero. The picture was being directed by Clem Kolancyk. The Burnetts had also called on Don Maeder and his wife, who was formerly Gladys Miller, and talked over old times together. The Maeders had twins named Peter and Peterina. Louise Warkentine and Lillian Krueger, the two notorious “alimonists” who had divorced more husbands than they could remember, made a tour of Parisian cafes while in Europe and found Arthur Groff and Lawrence and Albert Schnick working at the “Red Raven.” Henry Bodenstab and Dorothy Caluso were happily married, and Henry and his partner. Russell Brown, made a fortune on their new tarm inventions. Jack Risberg was a great baritone singer and several other musically inclined members of the class: Dick Luchtman. Elvin Korn, Jane Baker, and Ruth Herbert, were members of a symphony orchestra that made a tour of the world. Much of their success was credited to their director. Louise Hansen. Albert Tryon was United States senator and in one of his campaign tours came across Evalyn Cassler. Ethel Speckien, and Edna Guibert teaching school in the little town of Michigan City. Wilbur Martin and Walter McComb were sign painters under the able supervision of Evart McGrath. Lester Runge and Sam Havens were operating a parking space for airplanes. Harold Mewes won great fame in rushing news of a ship's distress signal to the coast guards in time to save all those on board. Frank and Marion had learned from Windy that Mary Helen Lindley, Eva Dean Leeds, and Gladys Cook were chorus girls in Virgil White’s Follies. Roy Flotow, formerly head baker at the breac works in Podunk. Arizona, and Harold Bcza. famed joke writer for the Whiz Bang weekly, surrendered their positions to join the navy under Admiral Burton Furst. Their wives. Mary Gard and Marjorie Dibbern. tried to keep them from going to sea. but they had no influence over them. DeVera Shon and Grant Stein, of the Class of '28, managed to keep away from the preacher until a few years ago when they went through the solemn ceremony. Mary Pscion and Ramona Sadenwater were appointed as swimming instructors in the New York public schools. Richmond Shires and his famed orchestra were playing for vitaphone vodvil acts with Sam Karpen as “head man.” (He carried in the music.) Leona Schmock and Norma Timm were secretaries at a Hollywood studio. Ruby Wooldridge, having tired of her companionate marriage, was also employed there. The three made a happy trio. [60]As Marion and Frank and John talked on. they told of an added attraction at the Wilkinson studio. Every Friday was “amateur night.” and Agnes Rix had given an exhibition of fancy swimming. Alice Hein had put on an act demonstrating an unruly husband, and Virginia Ernst had won the prize for being able to duplicate the act best. Her unfortunate husband was Don Ingw'erson. Lylith Breitzka and Annabelle Cochran had presented an act on “Why Be Good?” Robert Carlisle had carried out the poster announcing Ed Cassidy’s big circus that was coming to town featuring the Lion Taming Act by Everett Enders and the Take All Comers wrestling act with Orlin Stephens doing the “taking.” A headline in a recent paper had shocked former members of the class. It read: WILLIAM KENEFICK FINALLY MARRIES: a little farther down was this: Miss Jeannette Redpath happy victim. Floyd Shadel and Dick Thornburg were still the inseparable two. Marion Dostie had taken the part of John Gilbert in the hearts of the love-sick movie fans. Erwin Jesch and Charles Swartzell played clarinets recently in Ned Fisher’s Clown Band. Allen Lilienthal was a prominent lawyer in Rolling Prairie. Walter Weatherbee, Dave Root, and Charles Goede were controlling the stocks on Wall Street in New York. Louise Hufford and Mabel Ritchie were singing over the radio as the “Peppy Twins” of station LPHS. Helen Neulieb and Erna Lange were stenographers in Vivian Cannon’s employment agency. Gladys Hapke and Anne Ludwig were still hunting for the men of their dreams. Alice Wagner and Kathryn Thorne were models at John Carstens’ ready-to-wear store; and Wilma Parren, Florence Phillips, and Mary Ingersoll were sales ladies in the shoe department there. James Wilson and Elwood Ahlgrim were playing professional basketball with the Chicago Bruins. Charles Bluhm and Clyde Parret were playing ir. the New York Symphony orchestra of which Clarence Harding was the director. Carl Krueger realized his ambition and was head chef on the Leviathan. Lois Fraley and Frances Robinson frequently thrilled the New York society’s best with frivolous numbers at Lynetta Wilson’s night club, “The Yellow Canary.” James Ahlgrim had realized his life’s ambition and was president of the Anti-Saloon League of America. Gerald Dolezal was still raking in the profits from his invention of a perpetual motion machine. Hortense Moritz was the greatest violin artist on the concert stage and she. with her capable accompanist, Walter Minke, had won great renown. Gardiner Miller was at the head of a large chewing gum factory in Laporte. Lillian Westphal, Minnie Haberman. and Mildred Harner were all “happy housewives.” Helen Maurice was far away from the United States, way over in China acting as a missionary. Lea Hennard and Markaret Krseminske were nurses at Mr. Orlando Johnson’s health clinic. I suddenly awoke, and the picture quickly faded away, but as I thought over what I had seen in my dream. I wondered if after all it wouldn’t be the future of the Class of ’29?[z 9][63]Calendar Sept. 4—School again. Freshies smaller ’n’ ever! Sept. 21—First pep session. All set: M. C. vs. 3 Oaks.
