Text from Pages 1 - 106 of the 1930 volume:

THE ELSTONI AN lSHIPS IN HARBOUR I Have not known a quieter thing than ships. Nor any dreamers steeped in dreams as these: For all that they have tracked disastrous seas. And winds that left their sails in flagging strips; Nothing disturbs them now, no stormy grips That once had hurt their sides, no crash or swell; Nor can the fretful harbour quite dispel The quiet that they learned on lonely trips. They have no part in all the noisy noons; They are become as dreams of ships that go Back to the secret waters that they know. Each as she will, to unforgot lagoons, Where nothing moves except her ghostly spars That make the patient watches on the stars. —David Morton 23Drawn by James Papineau FOREWORD As the pirates hid their treasures In the far-away days of gore LOithin some rough sea chest Buried on a lonely shore, We’ve tried to make this volume A kind of treasure chest, too, Which will keep alive the memory Of high school dags for gou. —THE STAFF 4DEDICATION TO THE SIX SENIOR SPONSORS— MISS LUSK, MISS SOUTHGATE, MISS ENGSTROM, MR. PARSONS. MR. TROYER. AND MR. IRGANG—WHO HAVE PILOTED THIS. THE CLASS OF 1930, SAFELY THROUGH THE PERILOUS VOYAGE INTO THE HARBOR OF GRADUATION. WE DEDICATE THIS RECORD OF ACHIEVEMENTS. THE STAFF 56ISAAC C. ELSTON SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL The Isaac C. Elston Senior High School was opened in September, 1925 with Mr. Murray acting as principal of both the Junior and Senior buildings. In September 1926 Mr. Knapp became principal of Senior High, and the graduating class of this year entered as freshmen. This is the first class which entered this building in the nine-one semester and will probably be the last, because the first semester of the ninth year is now spent in Junior High School. This class is also the first to have had Mr. Knapp as principal for the entire four years. This building is Michigan City’s third high school and was built in 1924 on what had previously been the school playgrounds. The enrollment for the second semester was over eight hundred, and the graduating class numbered approximately one hundred and fifty. 79BIOLOGY MR KNAPP’S OFFICE 10FRED H. AHLGRIM GLADYS CARSTENS D. M. HUTTON President Secretary Treasurer THE BOARD OF EDUCATION The Board of Education is not brought into daily contact with the students of M. C. H. S. However, the Board has a great influence upon the high school life. We. the students, appreciate the interest which the members of this Board take in us and we wish them success and happiness in their work. 1 I ALMA SCHILF Assistant Secretary MARTHA HALLER Financial SecretaryMR. MURRAY Superintendent of Schools During the past four years in which Mr. Murray has been superintendent, the public schools have made great progress. Although Mr. Murray's attention is divided among all of the schools, he has an especial interest in M. C. H. S. as its former principal, and we have, in return, a deep respect for him. MR. KNAPP Principal of Senior High School Mr. Knapp came to M. C. H. S. in 1926, when the members of the Class of 1930 were freshmen. As principal, Mr. Knapp has won the respect of all who know him. His keen fore-sight, justice, and sympathetic understanding have made an indelible impression. In the years to come we wish him as much success and happiness as he has had in the past. JAMES H.

Practice in Michigan City as elsewhere indicates that a much larger number of those who graduate from high school will go into some business field immediately than will go to college. Records for the past several years show that approximately thirty-five percent of our graduates go to college while sixty-five percent go into other lines of work. The problem for the high school then is to provide as well for the interests of those who do not go to college as for those who do. In order to do this we offer three curriculums. One of these, the Vocational Curriculum, is designed especially for those boys who wish to go into shop work or other technical work and for those girls who wish to improve and prepare themselves in the domestic arts. This curriculum is so arranged that a student may complete eight units in the shops and in correlated subjects and yet be eligible to enter a technical college. A large number of students, especially girls, wish to go into stenographic or other office work and to them the Commercial Curriculum offers the opportunity for preparation and practice. The Academic Curriculum is planned to meet the needs of those expecting to enter colleges or universities. The courses of study are so arranged in each curriculum that any student who completes satisfactorily the requirements of that curriculum automatically meets our state’s requirements for graduation. In addition to the required subjects in each curriculum there are a number of electives of a purely cultural nature in the fields of art, music, literature, etc., which are open to all students. Members of the faculty, through their sponsor room activities, seek to give educational and vocational guidance which will be of value not only in choosing a curriculum but in checking the validity of that choice in subsequent achievement. While it is necessary to be well grounded in the fundamentals of specific training in order to be successful, it is equally important that one develops qualities of character to make that success sure. We try to aid in developing qualities of dependability, industry, punctuality, honesty, initiative, etc., by placing each one on his own responsibility as a citizen and by demanding the practice in daily work of such qualities. Student cooperative government, clubs, daily class work, participation on all school teams regardless of their nature, give ample opportunity for the development of character in the laboratory of experience and practice. We regard the ideals and standards mutually set for our accomplishment as a high school as sacred obligations which can be reached only by mutually cooperative effort on the part of students and faculty. M. L. KNAPP.EDWARD BRYAN President MARY EILEEN CASSIDY Secretary-Treasurer SENIOR CLASS HISTORY JOHN SUDROW Vice-President Four years ago Michigan City High School was crowded with a new group of freshmen. James Ahlgnm was elected president. Our first social event was the Freshman-Sophomore party given by the sophomores in our honor. After hard work we became sophomores. Then we began to see what high school was really like. John Sudrow was chosen to lead his class. Following the custom, the class entertained the freshmen. Then came our third year of school. Work was easier for us. and things began to happen. The class showed its acting ability by giving the play “Charm." Our president was Edward Bryan. Other officers of the class were Max Hirschmann. vice-president; Dorothy Kunkel. secretary, and Charles Lutz, treasurer. Through hard work, we gave one of the best annual proms that has ever been given. Now that our last term is over, we have many events upon which to look back. This year we inaugurated the plan of having two casts for the Senior Play. Our officers are pictured above. Members of our class have provided most of the officers for the various clubs and organizations; the class has also been well represented in athletics during our stay of four years.

TISCH Student Council I -2. JOE JACKSONtHt- £VST 'om CLASS OF 1931 p. Our juniors entrusted their leadership to James Stevens as president with . ward Evert, vice-president, and Elna Adamson, secretary-treasurer, as helpers. Unfortunately James was injured in football early in the season, and it was impossible for him to attend school. Due to his ineligibility it was necessary for the class to elect another leader. These seem to be quite plenteous in the Class of '31 ; so Clement Putz was given the honor of the presidency. The class chose and successfully presented "Daddy Long-Legs" for its class play. Ldna Herbert and Jack Dick carried the leading roles. During the last weeks of school the juniors were busy planning and giving the last big event of the year—the Junior Prom. The Class of 3 I is a capable class, and much is expected from the seniors of next year. CLASS OF 1932 The greatest achievement of the Sophomore Class was the Freshman-Sophomore party. The party was carried out by the three capable officers of the class: Donald Korn, president: Jack Smith, vice-president: and Earl Pausch, secretary-treasurer. These, together with the class sponsors. Miss McConkey and Mr. Applebee, made the event a great success. The sophomores have furnished much of the athletic material of M. C. H. S., especially in football and basketball. Great things are expected of the boys in the future. The class has also been interested in social events around the school, and has played an important part in student government also. CLASS OF 1933 In January of this year, there entered this high school the largest class of freshmen so far. In their class elections they chose Bruce Johnson to lead them through their first year. Merle Smith was chosen vice-president, and Alice Holloway, secretary-treasurer. Lor sponsors Mrs. Anderson and Mr. Wallace were chosen. The class was divided into eight sponsor groups. Their teachers were Miss Palm, Miss Burns. Miss Halter, Mrs. Anderson. Miss McConkey, Miss Luck, Mr. Nicholas, and Mr. Aton. From the first, the freshmen have shown their interest in school affairs: they have been especially interested in student government. Much can be expected of them in the future. 35Robert Kennington.

Special emphasis has been given to the improvement of citizenship within the school and to the development of individual responsibility. This year a new committee, the Service Committee, was formed. This group is responsible for announcements placed on the bulletin board. Much of the success of the Council is due to the fine type of leaders chosen to direct and guide its work. The following served as officers: First Semester: John Pawloski, chairman, Orpha Crist, secretary. Second Semester: John Sudrow, chairman, Genevieve Kriesel, secretary.

The local troupe was installed in our high school this year under the supervision of Miss Shepherd, and was given a charter as troupe ninety-one of the national society. The purpose of the organization is to promote high school dramatics, and successful participation in school plays is a requirement for membership in the troupe. There were eleven charter members who were made eligible by their acting in the Junior plays of last and this year. After the Senior play seventeen other students qualified for membership; so the troupe had twenty-eight members. The officers were: Anita Calvert, president; Kathleen Glidden. vice-president; and Elsie Flotow, secretary. 44First Row: Crist. Haerb, Slaiger. Crosby. Kricstl, Cannon. Reid. Kenefick.

HONOR SOCIETY The highest honor which the school can confer upon a student is election to the Isaac C. Elston chapter of the National Honor Society. Students are not eligible to membership until they are in the last semester of their junior year. Scholarship, character, leadership, and service are the qualifications upon which students are admitted to membership. The Class of 1930 has the honor of having had seventeen of its members elected to the chapter. This is the largest number to be chosen from any Senior Class since the local chapter was installed in 1926. The officers for the first semester of this year were Joseph Varkala, president; Evelyn Barts, vice-president; Alice Kenefick. secretary; and Shirley 45Standing: Ehninger. johmon. Luther (coach).

Michigan City High School was entered in the State Debating League this year. The question for debate was, “Resolved that Indiana should adopt by law a policy of old age pensions. All of the debaters on the first teams with but one exception were seniors this year. The affirmative team won from East Chicago and South Bend and lost to LaPorte. It was composed of Alice Kenefick, John Keys, and Carl Woodard, captain. The negative team, won from East Chicago and LaPorte and lost to South Bend. Shirley Crosby.

In order to be eligible for membership, a student must have obtained thirty credit points. The insignia of the society is a silver key. Upon admission to the league the member is given the Degree of Merit. By inter-scholastic debating, declamation, discussion, and oratorical contests the member may earn enough credit points to win three advanced degrees: The Degree of Honor, sixty points; the Degree of Excellence, one hundred points; the Degree of Distinction, one hundred and fifty points. The coach receives one-tenth of the credit points gained by the contestant.

Winning five game , losing two. and having one tie. the Red Devil finished among the leaders in the conference. The Red Devils started out trampling the surprised South Bend Bears to the tune of 20 to 6. This game drew one of the greatest crowds ever seen on Gill field. This was the only game the Bears lost all season. Next the Gillmen lost a heart-breaking game to Goshen, 13 to 7. at Goshen. After Captain Crawford had made a brilliant 55 yard run for a touchdown to put the Red Devils in the lead. 7 to 6. Goshen unloosed a frantic last minute attack. Then the Gillmen fell prey to Emerson. 32 to 13. in a fast game. This game was notable because both teams scored touchdowns in the first 44 seconds of play. In the next game the Red Devils tied the Whiting Oilers. 7 to 7. on a muddy field. The next week, on Gill field, came the game of games. Here, before another record-breaking crowd, the Red Devils downed their ancient rivals. LaPorte. in a nerve-wracking game, by a score of 13 to 12. A the last quarter of the game started. LaPorte was leading. 12 to 0. However, the Gillmen made a great comeback to win. Then the Red Devils traveled to Plymouth, where they crushed the (ducky Pilgrims. 31 to 0. After a week’s rest. Hammond came here. In another great comeback the Gillmen won. 10 to 6. In the last game of the season the Red Devils traveled to Elkhart. There they downed the Blue Avalanche. 13 to 6. A last quarter 30 yard pass. Evert to Clappy, brought victory. Thus ended a successful season. The Red Devils, during the season, scored 114 points, while their opponents made 67. Of the sixteen first team players, seven are lost by graduation. Crawford Clappv Thorne. Blank. Kuchik. Sudrow. and Spychalski graduate. However. Smith. Redding. Hall. Scnvnor. Evert. Sawaya. Grimes. Ford, and Stevens will be back next year.Standing: Coach Wallace, Pulz, Fausch. Grimes, L. Johnson. Smith. Johnston. Sitting: Redding. Schultz. Ducey, Sawaya, Janz, Hirschmann. Korn. BASKETBALL As was expected. Michigan City had another unsuccessful season on the basketball court. Although the team’s record for the season was not high, yet several times they gave the stronger teams hard fights. During the regular season the Red Devils won four games and lost thirteen. In the sectional tournament. the team got to the finals, but was defeated there by LaPorte. 23 to IS. in a close contest. This season the Red Devils had a new coach. Mr. L. K. Wallace. Mr. Wallace has built up a promising team for next year. Of the thirteen first squad players, eleven will be back next year. SEASON S RECORD M. C. H. S., 38; Rolling Prairie. 25. M. C. H.

They were in the eastern division of the conference with South Bend. LaPorte. Nappanee, Mishawaka, and Goshen. t •• c l i The team had practically all of last year s veterans back again. Wibby Rogers, bhorty bchultz. Navrat. Clement Putz, Don Korn. Tom Gill. Fred Johansen, John Bartels, Harold Goede. Jack Dick, Bull Scrivnor, Ungurait. Loomis, and Whitlow all played well during the season. Seven of these are lost by graduation, but Coach Gill has built up a promising squad of reserves to take their places. This year a new system was introduced by Coach Gill. Since the conference schedule did not start until later in the season than usual, two bush leagues, each composed of seven teams, were formed. A regular schedule was drawn up. and games were played every night after school. Since each team had a squad of twelve players, over 160 boys participated in the games, thus giving many promising players good chances to show their merits. Baseball is not being taken up by the conference teams as well as might be expected. Only about half of the conference schools have teams representing them. The conference schedule was as follows: April 25—South Bend, here. May 2—LaPorte. here. May 7—Mishawaka, there. May 8—Nappanee, here. May 13—LaPorte, there. May 16—Goshen, there.First Row: Grandorf.

TRACK The track team representing M. C. H. S. on the cinder path this year was one of the strongest in this half of the conference. In the first meet of the season, the Red Devils overwhelmed Valparaiso and Chesterton, rhe Red Devils scored 62 2 points; Valpo. 34J 2; and Chesterton, 24. The Red Devils went out with the intention of winning the meet and placed in every event. Some of the point-getters were: Captain Grandorf. J. Smith. Evert. I isch. Spychalski. Grimes. Scrivnor. Stinchcomb. Oszuscik. Varkala. Lay. Stader. M. Smith. Thompson. Pittsford. Kuchik. R. Grandorf. and Darman. Only seven of these boys graduate: so another strong team will be back next year. This year the track team was coached by Mr. Wallace, our new coach. He has built up a premising outfit for next year. The schedule for the 1930 season was as follows: April 5—M. C.. Chesterton, and Valparaiso, at home. April 12—County Meet at LaPorte. April 19—M. C.. LaPorte. and Mishawaka, at Mishawaka. April 26—M. C.. and South Bend, at home. May 3—Open date.

Standing: WRESTLING Inexperience, and ihe non-ability of some of the best members of the team to make their weights, in some of the meets, handicapped the 1929-1930 wrestling team. Both of the teams earlier meets were with Elkhart, conference champion. In the first meet, Elkhart defeated the Red Devils, 12 to 36. L. Furst, H. Furst, and G. Scrivnor won bouts for Michigan City. In the second meet. Elkhart again defeated the team, this time 3 to 33. H. Furst and Scrivnor won bouts. The conference meet was held this year at South Bend. There, the Red Devils tied for fourth place. Elkhart captured the meet with 43 points. South Bend was second with 26 points. Roosevelt of East Chicago was third with 16 points. Michigan City and Washington of East Chicago each had 14 points for fourth place. Scrivnor brought home the heavyweight championship, while L. Furst got second in his division. Coach “Andy" Gill should be complimented upon the wrestling squad. He has built up a promising squad from practically no material. Since few of the squad graduate, they hope to make a strong bid for honors next year. SEASON S RECORD M. C. H. S„ 12; Elkhart. 36. M. C. H. S.. 3; Elkhart. 33. 58 BOYS’ SPORTS Due mainly to the efforts of our beloved coach. Andy Gill. Michigan City High School has had a very successful athletic season this past year. Aided by the addition of a new coach to our coaching staff. Mr. L. K. Wallace, who coaches basketball and track! the teams representing us have shown that Michigan City is to be feared and respected in athletic contests. Beginning this year, our football team made one of the best records ever made by a Red Devil team. In their home games they drew some of the greatest crowds ever witnessing a Michigan City game. Although the basketball team did not have an equally successful season, yet they went down fighting. They improved rapidly toward the end of the season, and fought hard. The wrestling squad did much better under the expert coaching of "Andy" than they had been expected to do. This was the first year for a long time that the annual conference meet was not held here. The baseball team had one of its most successful seasons. This year there were only four other baseball teams in the eastern part of the conference. The track team also had a successful season. In the first home meet held this year, the Red Devils overwhelmed the visitors. The Red Devil track squad was one of the strongest in this half of the conference. This year two new sports were introduced. A golf team was organized by Mr. Parsons, and it proved a success. A gymnastics squad was organized by Coach Gill this year, and several of the boys developed outstanding ability in this line. Thus every boy who wanted to participate in interscholastic sports had ample opportunity to do so.'Hffc S t OH W BOYS’ SPORTS [Continued Not only were general athletic conditions good this but also intermural sports reached a high plane. For several years Coach G.1 has to develop athletics within the school This year he developed group activities in baseball and basketball Credit for these act vties should also be given to Wilbert Rogers, who acted as student manager for the leagues. Michigan City High School now has one of the best developed systems mural athletics in this part of the state. . Last fall a baseball league was formed among the various sponsor groups. After a hard-fought schedule Mr. Parsons’ senior sponsor group carried away the honors. , . As the baseball league schedule drew to a close a sponsor group basketball league, composed of fourteen teams, was formed. A schedule composed of two halves was drawn up. In each half of the schedule, each team played every other team. In the first half Mr. Irgang s and Mr. Parsons senior sponsor groups tied for first place with thirteen games won and one lost. In the play-off for first place Mr. Parsons’ group won. In the second half of the league schedule Mr. Parsons’ group again won. while Mr. Myran’s, Mr. Maxey’s. and Mr. Irgang’s groups were tied for second. Mr. Parsons’ team received gold basketball watch-charms. Mr. Troyer’s senior sponsor group organized a basketball tournament. Games were played after school, and admission was charged for the semi-final and final games. The proceeds went to finance a Lettermen’s banquet. Trophies were given to the first and second place winners by Mr. Troyer’s group. After a hard-fought schedule Mr. Myran’s sophomore sponsor group took first; and Mr. Irgang’s senior group, second. In the spring another baseball league was organized. However this time the league was d1Vided into two smaller divisions, one containing the freshman and sophomore groups; the other, the seniors and juniors. Each league had six teams, and. at the end of the season, the two winners played for first place m the entire league. F atc In closing these accounts of the athletic season of M.C.H.S we wish to honor our coach and teacher Andy Gill.” and may his teams of ‘l930 31 be as successful as those of this past year. J 1 De 60 Rl £VSTombhl GIRLS’ SPORTS At the beginning of the year a G. A. A. meeting was called to elect the officers for the year. Dorothy Koza was elected president; Orpha Crist, vice-president; Clarice Reid, secretary: and Ruth Kemena, treasurer. Miss Sebesta appointed several managers to assist her in refereeing games that were played after school and in any other problems that might arise. These managers were: Dorothy Koza, Clarice Reid, Elizabeth Haerb. Frances Taylor. Marion Hutton. Orpha Crist, Helen Fenton, and Agnes Rogers. On Friday. October 18. the annual Kids' party was held in the gym at 7:30 o’clock. The girls of the G. A. A. voted to have an emblem for the organization. The emblem is round and has a red background with white G. A. A. letters. This year fifty-six new badges were given to the girls who passed the badge test, and ten points toward a letter were given to those girls who passed these tests. Last fall hockey teams were organized in the various gym classes, and the games were played n the athletic field. Many exciting and close games were played, and after the season was over the first period on Tuesday hockey team, captained by Helen Fenton, won first place. At the close of the hockey season volley ball was started. These games were played after school in the girls’ gym and were as interesting as the hockey games. The championship of the volley ball season went to the first period on Tuesday, which seemed to take a liking to winning championships. Then came basketball which is and has always been the best liked sport among the girls. Sponsor teams were organized instead of class teams and were far more interesting to the girls. There was keen competition, and many exciting and nerve wracking games were played. The Engstrom sponsor team turned out to be the winner of the league, having won ten games and lost none. After the basketball season the annual Girls’ Physical Education Demonstration was given. The demonstration was held in the “Barn” on Friday. March 21 at 8 o clock. More than two-hundred and fifty girls took part in the program which consisted of two parts. PART I WAND DRILL............................ GAMES.................................
