J..mlme.,..z L. .,, M I MICHIGAN CITY IN l86O Michigan City had only a few residents, mainly fur-traders, in the late "twenties," It was founded in I83I by Major Isaac C. Elston, in honor of whom our school is named. It became a city in I832. hen the great rush to the West occurred at that time, it began to be a place o some importance, and its inhabitants thought that a harbor should be constructed to give anchorage for ships and also to help the town. As it grew, of course, it needed more buildings. Other little nearby towns were forsaken, and a number of their inhabitants tore down their dwellings and moved them by ox team to Michigan City to help build up new places. Michigan City began to flourish. lts citizens were wide awake and advertised their little town freely. It became a good place for trade, for it was on the main road from Detroit, as well as on one from the north. Michigan City was considered a great lumbering port. Often ships would lie at anchor in Lake Michigan, waiting for ships already docked to unload and thus make room for newcomers. The eastern tract of land has become a center of remarkable events: it is the scene of the old Indian Council and dancing groundsg the site of the Revolutionary battle with the British: and the site of Marquette Spring, where fur-traders who passed along the trail usually camped because of its good water and excellent position. Another interesting feature of Michigan City was her huge sand-dunes. Over these were blazed many a trail by Indian and pioneer, and today they give thought for reflection and historic reminiscence.

HISTORY OF ISAAC C. ELSTON I-IIGI-I SCHOOL Almost sixty-three years ago the first city high school, located where Elston School now stands, was constructed. One may think that our graduating classes are comparatively small, but as when one hears of three girls-Mary Behan, Aice Brett, and Sarah Farrar composing a graduating class, one stops to think how much more people value an education and how much better educational facilities are today. Our first graduation was in I87I while S. F.. Miller was superintendent. Classes have been graduated in Michigan City ever since, except in I874 and l885. Old Elston High School was used till IS76. ln that year work began on Central School because the number of students was fast increasing, thus demanding larger accommodations. ln l890 the superintendent was C. Black, and he was succeeded in turn by Edward Boyle. Local citizens who attended school back in '96 will remember the horse and buggy that brought Mr. Boyle to school, and also will recall the crooked index finger which he used to point at his students to obtain discipline. He also used the method of uplifting the student's chin While reprimanding him and pointing out the demarcation of right and wrong. Fire damaged the Central building in l896, and classes were held in Barker Hall and other places in town until after the reconstruction of Central School. On every Friday afternoon back in the year '98 debates were held before the student body. Certain teachers had charge, and the student debaters were assigned a side and a teacher who would act as their coach. Practice for marching on Decoration Day took place on 8th Street. After the upper classmen had trained sufficiently, they had to drill students lContinuod on Page IBD Page ll i . HOWARD C. CROSBY CLADYS CARSTENS D. M.

Although the members are only indirectly connected with the student body, we appreciate their interest and feel that the members are well qualified for the positions which they hold.

His meritorious efforts have been wholly recognized, and because of his deserv- ing qualities, we hold him in great esteem. We congratulate him, and sincerely hope for his untold success in further achievements. M. C. MURRAY Superintendent of Schools Because of the untiring interest and con- stant leadership of Mr. Knapp, our principal, who has guided us over the many ruts of our high school career, we, the Class of '32, extend our sincere appreciation for all his kindly efforts, and wish him success and happiness in whatever he may undertake. lVl.

This drilling would be held about a month before and up to the day on which they were to march. AI. G. Monroe and P. A. Cowgill succeeded Mr. Boyle, and L. W. Keeler in turn succeeded them. Central School soon became overcrowded, and another school had to be built. The recorded original plan of the city carries the following donation of lsaac C. Elston: "One acre of ground at the extreme lower end of Spring Street and opposite the eastern end of Wood Street." ln 1910 the lsaac C. Elston High School, now the Junior High School, was completed and stands on the ground originally donated. The same reason that called this high school into existence called another one to take its place. Construction on the lsaac C. Elston Senior High School, situated on what had previously been the school playgrounds, was completed in l924, the building was first used in the fall of 1925, and the Class of '26 had the honor of being the first to graduate from it. This three-story building is well-lighted and well-ventilated. Students feel very proud of the fact that the mural decoration by Robert Grafton, a well-known local artist, depicting a scene from the early history of Michigan City, adorns the walls of their study hall. Because of an over-crowded condition, a large library was recently added to the south wing of the school, and there is now room enough to accom- modate many students. The Class of 1932 entered high school in the fall of i928 as nine-two's, and is the fourth class to complete a four year course in the school. Not all students are fitted for the same position in life. Therefore, to meet the various needs, our high school offers three different types of curriculums, to one of which each student must adapt himself and follow the suggested program throughout his high school course. Each course has been so arranged that the required subjects automatically fulfill graduation requirements. Many graduates of a high school do not take an advanced education but enter the business field. Records for the past several years in Michigan City show that approximately thirty-five percent of the graduates attend college while the other sixty-five percent plan a career along some other line of work. Our high school has it so arranged that even if a student has not planned to further his education, he may be eligible for college if electives are properly selected. For boys who are interested in shop or other technical work, and for girls who wish to become acquainted with and prepare themselves for the domestic arts, the Vocational Curriculum is offered, which is especially designed to meet their needs. The Commercial Curriculum is an advantage to many students, especially to girls who desire to go into stenographic or other office work. This course prepares the student for a successful business career and fits him for a position of responsibility through practice, giving the student much knowledge as to what may be expected of him in business life. 4 Students who plan to attend college or universities follow the Academic or General Course. ln 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, foreign languages, etc., which are open to all students. Though each one of the three curriculums represents an individual and separate field, the ideals of education prevail and form a bond of common interest.

C. H. S., their thoughts turn to the good old days when they were quivering, quaking underclassmen. They remember not only the fact that as freshmen they were hazed by the sophomores and afraid of IVlr. Knapp, but that they elected Jack Smith, president of the classg Jack Dick, vice-presidentg and Lewis Hultgreen, secretary-treasurer. When they became sophomores, the Class of '32 thought that their sole duty was to make the incoming freshmen feel as uncomfortable as they had felt the year before. They Hnally did decide to take time to elect Donald Korn, presidentg Jack Smith, vice-presidentg and Earl Fausch, secretary- treasurer. They also decided to reward the freshmen for their long-suffering attitude by giving a successful Freshman-Sophomore Party. As juniors the Class of I93Z decided to break the age-old custom of having a boy for president by electing Jane Carlson. She was assisted by Glenn Scrivnor as vice-president, and John Myers as secretary-treasurer. The class qualified in amateur dramatics by giving an entertaining Junior play, "The New Poor." Then came the big moment when they were enrolled as seniors. After much consideration, John Myers, Paul Gill, and Mary Garrettson were chosen class officers. "Come Out of the Kitchen" was presented as the Senior play. The Senior Class has given service to IVI. C. H. S. in sports, music, debating and oratory, student government, and, in fact, in every phase of high school activities. - - Page I9 FRANKLIN ADLER MEYER AEMMER RICHARD ANDERSON ASSEM ANKONY JOHN BAILEY BERNICE BANNWART MARGARET BENGSTON WILLIAM BEHNKE FRANKLIN ADLER- MEYER AEMMER- Nature Club 1-2, vice-pres. 42.13 Council 4213 Hi-Y 3-4.

Not only that, but they were very smart young freshmen. At the beginning of their high school career, they chose Bruce Johnson, Merle Smith, and Alice Holloway for class officers. After much coaxing, they consented to attend the Freshman-Sophomore Party that was given in their honor. Then one clay they awoke to the fact that they were no longer just freshmen but had advanced to the high estate of sophomores. With John Segnitz as president, Merle Smith as vice-president, and Ernest Dingler as secretary-treasurerj they sponsored a delightful Freshman-Sophomore party. After they had absorbed all the knowledge they could as sophomores, the faculty decided to give them a chance to prove their Worth as juniors. They chose as class officers: Ray Fox, presidentg Merle Smith, vice-president: and John Segnitz, secretary-treasurer. "A Lucky Break" was given as the junior playg and, with the aid of Miss Frances Mcconkey and I... W. Smith, their sponsors, a very successful Junior Prom was sponsored by the group. Next year these juniors will be seniors, and an illustrious future is fore- seen from the active part they have taken in school affairs up to this time.

That Helen Bell, Frank Shadel, and Robert Fox were their first officers? That when they became sophomores they elected Robert Fox for their president, Winola Auiler as vice-president, and Lois Ericson as secretary- treasurer? That with the efficient aid of Miss Mildred Dahlberg and A. Parsons, their sponsors, they gave the Freshman Class a rousing welcome with a very novel and enjoyable Freshman-Sophomore party? That they have taken an active interest in other school affairs-including sports, music, and student government? That these same sophomores will next year become juniors?

C. H. S. this year without stumbling over children that appear just old enough to be entering sixth grade. ln reality these little folk are members of one of the largest Freshman classes ever to enter high school. After a few weeks of dashing about and getting lost, the ufreshiesn settled down to working them- selves out of their present status into the Sophomore class. They elected as officers Eugene Pepple, presidentg Sally Stevens, vice-presidentg and Leo Kominarek, secretary-treasurer. The freshmen girls were welcomed by the Girls' League at a pretty afternoon teaQ and the whole class was the guests of the Class of I934 at the annual Freshman Sophomore party. Because the freshmen have already taken a firm grasp on school affairs, many great and outstanding deeds of usophomorehoodn are expected of them next year.

HONOR SOCIETY The local chapter of the National Honor Society was organized in l926 and reached its largest membership this year, with five members from last year and nineteen new ones this year. The students are chosen into the society each year from the junior ll's and seniors. The qualifications for admittance to the organization are scholar- ship, character, leadership, and service. Membership is the highest honor which a student can receive in high school, and the society is similar to honorary fraternities in college. Mr. A. Parsons is the sponsor. The officers for the past year were: John Staiger, presidentg Assem Ankony, vice-president, Jane Carlson, secretaryg and Harry De Mass, treasurer. One of the first services which the Honor Society performed was in answer to a request from lVlr. Knapp. The members were asked to formulate their ideas of what the various parts of the personnel blank mean and what students must do or not do to achieve high marks on their personnel gradings. Later in the year the members of the society volunteered to tutor students who needed help in certain subjects which were difficult for them. Many students were helped in this way. 1---- Page 39 I1--Y 1, MUSIC DEPARTMENT The music department of our school had three organizations this year: the chorus, orchestra, and banclg each has achieved success in its respective work. lVlr. H. E. Ten Harkel was director of the chorus, and Mr. Palmer lVlyran directed the band and orchestra. The chorus was composed of boys and girls in the senior high music classes, and although it was organized only last fall, it took an active part in the school life. The band members in their crimson and white uniforms played at the foot- ball and basketball games and demonstrated their skill in marching by paracling between the halves at football games. ln l928 the total enrollment in the band and orchestra was 48g this enrollment has increased until this year the two groups numbered three- hundred and sixty-two, a number which did not include the beginners' classes. Officers of the band and orchestra this year were: Harold Lieber, presi- dentg Alva Parsons, vice-presiclentg Glenn Swartzell, secretaryg John Staiger, managerg Fred Bluhm, librariang and Kendall Sands, assistant librarian. Martin Katz was concert master, and Ludwig Lischer and Mildred Volksclorf were principals. The band and chorus presented a combined concert on February Z5 and 26, and the orchestra and chorus united in a concert on April I5. The three organ- izations made other public appearances during the year, and groups from these organizations appeared on several occasions. Page 40 - - W STUDENT COUNCIL The Student Council for the school year of l93l and 1932 showed marked advances in its activities over previous years. Not only was its number augmented, but its scope in school affairs was broadened. Much credit is due, no doubt, its responsible officers and faculty advisor, Miss Mabel Engstrom, but the establishing of new and higher criteria for future Councils to follow was the result of the initiative and resourcefulness of the Council members. Don Korn was elected president for the first semester, with Paul Gill and Jeanette Wolff as Vice-president and secretary, respectively. It was at the beginning of the school year that the plan of putting the Service Committee in charge of the display of posters and bulletins was introduced. Besides keeping all displays up to date, the Service Committee took charge of ushering at various school functions. The Social and Judicial committees also proved themselves efficient and competent. Another mark of initiative on the part of the Council was the introduction of a cheer leading committee, whose duty it was to work with the cheer leaders in bringing about a better organized cheering system. Upon the advent of a new semester, new members were elected to the Council and new officers chosen as follows: Edward Johnson, presidentg Ray Fox, vice-presidentg and Alice Breitzka, secretary. During the administration of these officers, the Council brought about several changes that resulted in a more systematic and efficient management of affairs.

I-ll-Y The Hi-Y started what proved to be a successful year last fall with Don Korn as president, John Myers as vice-president, John Staiger as secretary- treasurer, Roger Thompson as sergeant-at-arms, and Mr. George L. lrgang as faculty sponsor. Besides its usual activities the Hi-Y undertook some new projects this year. Among them was the joint Laporte and Michigan City Good Will bell. Another major activity of the club was the organization of two new I-liaY clubs for younger boysg a junior Hi-Y for boys of junior high and an Intermediate I-li-Y for freshmen, sophomores, and junior l's were organized. The largest membership ever attained by the Hi-Y was reached during this year, when the club had a total of fifty-four members. The election held on March 14th resulted as follows: Raymond Fox, presidentg James Cathcart, vice-presidentg john Tuthill, secretary - treasurerg and William Angrick, sergeant-at-arms. Another innovation was the Hi-Y retreat planned for the final meeting of both senior high Hi-Y clubs at Camp Pottawattomie on Sunday afternoon and evening of May 22. Page 42 ,lmllv .

ELSTONIAN STAFF Soon after school began last September, students were chosen from the Senior Class by the class officers ancl sponsors to edit this Elstonian. Two were selected for editor-in-chief and business manager, respectively, and the Senior Class votecl upon these selections, with the resulting election of Jane Carlson as editor and Douglas Ehninger as business manager. The remaining members of the staff were chosen with one person for each position. Because of their efforts and labors this annual has been published for you.

It was first organized in the spring of l93l. Mary Garrettson, Marjorie Greening, and Rose Joseph were elected as president, vice-president, and secretary-treasurer, respectively. The purpose of the League is to promote and advance the happiness and success of each member, to develop friendships among all girls, and to better each girl's opportunity for self-expression. ln addition, the organization aims to help in worthy purposes of the school and community. The Girls' League has sponsored several parties, including a freshmen tea, a Hcootieu party, and a Valentine party. Programs have been presented at all meetings, and dancing, dramatic, and musical talent have been displayed by girls of the school. Teachers have talked on constructive subjects, informal talks have been given by students, and the American Association of University Women has furnished speakers. During the late fall and winter social gatherings and teas were held for the purpose of sewing for the Red Cross, and at Christmas time boxes were filled, and money to be used in the Red Cross Work was collected.

Starting early in the fall after the team was chosen from those who tried out, the debaters set themselves to hard Work, which later brought them their rewards when they won the right to go to the state contest at Manchester. The affirmative team consisted of Douglas Ehninger, Claradelle Perham, and Ruth Greenebaum, while the negative team was Douglas Ehninger, Clara- delle Perham, and lrene Cochran. Winning four out of their six conference debates, the team met Plymouth in a dual debate, and both affirmative and negative teams Won, thus gaining the championship of this district. The debaters held a double debate with Hammond, which they Won, giving Michigan City the zone championship. The schedule for the year's debates Was: 1. Affirmative vs. Laporte negative 4. Negative vs. Central affirmative At Laporte-Lost. At South Bend-Won. 2. Negative vs. Riley affirmative 5. Negative vs. Laporte affirmative Home-Lost. Home-Won. 3. Affirmative vs. Central negative 6.

TH ESPIANS The Thespians is an honorary dramatic organization and was introduced in our school in l93O by Miss Goldie Shepherd. Membership is limited to those students who have shown outstanding ability in acting in a high school play. Under the leadership of Lucille -Ianlce, Beatrice Ragsdale, Ruth Evert, and James Turnpaugh - president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer, respectively-the group has accomplished much and has given a large amount of service to the school this year. The major project was the supervision of the building of the stage in the Little Theater, and the purchase of a cyclorama and a curtain for it. During the year members of the society gave their services as coaches, and several plays for special occasions were given by various members. Three boys-john Staiger, john Segnitz, and William Ansell-and five girls-Mary Garrettson, Ruth Evert, Betty Blomquist, Edna Mae Pachollce, and Doris Ahlgrimggave a play, "Father's Day On or lVlother's Day Off" for the Parent-Teachers' Association in january. At the Mother-Son banquet in February a playlet, "lf Boys Played Cards as Their Mothers Do," was presented by John Staiger, Gilbert Mross, james Turnpaugh, and George Chandler. Sally janke, Flora Beth Burnett, Betty Blomquist, and jane Carlson gave the play "The Flapper and Her Friends" at the Mother-Daughter banquet in May. The senior members of the Thespians aided in the selection of the Senior play. ' Page 47 BASKETBALL No, this is not a fairy storyg neither is it a chapter from Horatio Alger's "Frcm ,Ieers to Cheers," but instead it is the true story--though strange and doubtful as it may seem--of how Coach Loren Ellis fEttingwell to you? nursed the '3l-'32 basketball boys from tiny tots of oblivion to strapping youths of hardwood fame. ln the following paragraphs there will be unfolded before your eyes the wondrous tale which will live in your dreams and forever give unlimited material for the wildest imagination. It was on November 20 in the "Barn" that the blushing Red Devils opened the season against Union Mills, the team which had had the affrontery to eliminate us from the sectional tourney in l930. The game, which was won by us C24 to 193 because of a last minute drive, seemed to show that the f-louse of the Red Devils was offering just another mediocre team. This impression of the team was not helped when Bill Angrick was declared ineligible a few weeks later. Even the most optimistic fans gulped when thinking of the future. Our height proved too much for the small, but fast shifting Whiting five when we met them in the uBarn" on November 25. We won the tilt, I8 to l3, and loyal followers began to cheer, for the lmps had accomplished a feat not equaled in the previous season-they had won two consecutive games! Michigan City traveled to Gary the following week and was emphatically outplayed by the Emerson team, who triumphed, 33-l 7. Fault-finders pointed out that the locals might look quite good against country teams, but when they got up against strong competition like Emerson ,... 3 well, they agreed that M. possibly was the best team in the country, but certainly not in the city. The Red Devils redeemed themselves when they made use of a last- minute basket to beat Nappanee, 20 to l8, in a ball game played on the foreign court on December l l. Seven days later Elkhart handed the Ellismen their bitterest defeat. Elkhart won, 21-20, stalling the final six minutes of the contest in a beautiful manner. Miracle number one was performed on December 22. The Laporte Slicers came to town, confident that they would win their thirteenth straight victory against the Prison City quintet, but they were downed, 27 to 22, by a team that completely outplayed them. Fans were so surprised at the unexpected victory that they hurried home to pound their heads against the wall to see whether or not they were awake. The first game in the new year was played against Goshen on January 8. Goshen must have reminded the lads of Emerson, for the harborites' took a 36-20 walloping. Would-be famous predictors became all the more confused on the true status of the Red Devil club, when Michigan City eked out a I9 to I8 verdict over the highly-touted Hammond Tech athletes. Three points in the last forty seconds of play turned the trick. Page 48 immi- BASKETBALL lcontinuedl The second rubbing of Aladdin's lamp occurred the next day in Laporte at the annual Blind Tourney. Michigan City met Mishawaka in the afternoon and defeated them in a double overtime, 20 to 18. The game was one of that kind at which the spectators get infested with goose-pimples and "shake-a- betesf' The master stroke came at night when we touched elbows with South Bend Central, the conquerors of Laporte. A Z8 to I8 victory gave us the championship and a mighty peculiar feeling, for who ever heard of any Michigan City high school team winning any tournament before this time? Miracle number three made its appearance at Mishawaka on January 20. The local second team participated in the first annual conference second team tourney. ln the first round the seconds met Central and squeezed out a 26-21 win. They trounced Laporte in the semi-finals, winning 24 to 12. The Ellis- men won the tourney, eliminating Goshen, 22-19, in an overtime. Clappy was recognized as the individual star of the day. The Red Devil first-stringers celebrated their blind tourney championship by losing to East Chicago on the twenty-second. The contest, which was enacted on the foreign court, went to East Chicago by a count of 37 to 20. A final four-minute drive beat Central in South Bend a week later by a score of Z9 to 23. February 5 was the day that we went to Laporte with the attitude that the Slicers dic1n't have a chance. The Maple City five tussled with us on even terms for the first three quarters, and then, in a wild and woolly final quarter they drew ahead and held a 27 to 24 margin when the cannon roared. Michigan City proved a bit too strong for Mishawaka, the outfit that almost threw us out of the Blind Tourney, and the lmps triumphed, I9 to 15. The Red Devils made it two straight on February 19, when they spanked Riley of South Bend to the tune of Z6 to I0 in the "Barn.,' The last game of the regular season was fought against Morgan Park of Chicago. Michigan City stretched its winning streak to three in a row, for the boys came from behind in a hot battle and emerged victorious, 30-25. Thus, the Red Devils entered the Sectional Tourney with a record of I0 victories and 6 defeats and the assurance that they were at the top of their form. Carl Janz was awarded second place in individual scoring honors for the conference season. This fact, and knowing that Michigan City had A-1 material in Korn, Kramer, Fox, M. Smith, and Heberling, helped to put fear in the hearts of sectional opponents. The lmps won their first two games comparatively easily, beating Lydick, 69 to 2, and then Union Township, 50-13. ln the semi-final round Michigan City locked horns with Laporte. We had the edge most of the way, but the Slicers rallied in the final quarter to close the gap between the scores considerably. The gun found the Red Devils on the long end of a 27-23 score. The Ellismen opposed Wanatah in the championship game, which was witnessed by 3,000 shouting spectators. A well fought contest resulted in another championship for Michigan City, the lmps topping, 24-19. Thus another miracle was unraveled. l-l Page 49 Sitting: Wienke, Capt. Clappy, Fox, and Hirschman.

The Prison City Five acted like champs, fighting down unmerciful drives and staging brilliant offensive moves. A stub- born defense fought off strong attacks and protected the l9-l 8 edge. lt was truly music to the ears when the gun barked. It was Valparaiso against the fighting Red Devils for the Regional title, and the 4,000 fans saw a real game. Michigan City displayed one of the prettiest second half come-backs ever witnessed by high school audiences. Valpo fell before the rushes of a determined Red Devil aggregation by the count of 26-23.

BASKETBALL fconlcinuedl miracles had been performed. Michigan City had annexed its Hrst sectional and regional title since 1924! Whoopee! Michigan City Went to Indianapolis on March I8 to take part in the twenty-first annual state basketball tournament. The Red and White was matched against Bosse of Evansville, and the game was scheduled for Friday evening. The Crimson Flash dashed out upon the floor, red in the face and shaky in the knees. Well, who Wouldn't be? You try running out before l5,000 critical spectators and make an attempt to act nonchalant. A clever Bosse team beat a confused Red Devil outfit, 25 to Zl. Michigan City has one consolation in knowing that Bosse whipped Indianapolis Tech -- the tourney favorites-in the quarter finals, and journeyed to the semi-finals. Prospects for next year are very bright. Although Coach Ellis loses Korn, janz, and Heberling, he keeps Kramer, Fox, M. Smith, P. Smith, Angrick, Schroeder, Bonislawski, Fausch, Clappy, Vergane, and several other promising men who should rebuild the club in a satisfying manner. Page 5I TRACK Another track season will have come and gone by the time you read this resume, but because this book went to press before the schedule was completed, we'll generalize on what has gone before. First let's pay tribute to the boys who went out for the team. Every boy who has the backbone to go out for track and to stay out all season just to plug around the cincler path until aching legs and exerted lungs are calling for mercy, boys who eat the dirt stirred up by the feet of fellow-runners and like it-well, boys like these who recognize work and deprive themselves of pleasures deserve some credit. Michigan City lost its first meet on April 9 to Laporte. Although the Red Devils got more than an even break in the track events, the Slicers won, 54 to 45, because of their counter attack on our Weak field event defense. This victory gave the Maple City cincler squad the county championship. Mishawaka ran away with the triangular meet held at Laporte on the following week.

'++!fiR++- TENNIS Tennis has finally found a footing on which to stand before the critical eyes of the high school. Before this year, tennis was thought to be rather insignificant and deserving of no comment or support, but this spring brought with it a determination of the tennis aspirants to form an organization and see to it that they were recognized by the school. The racqueteers united under the head of "Tennis Association," got the sanction of the B. A. A. to take charge of the school tennis activities, and went to work to originate five round- robins. The five separate forms of competition included boys' singles and doubles, girls' singles and doubles, and mixed doubles. The play consisted wholly of challenges which had to be accepted in 48 hours. The different contests were decided by 6 out of II games and could be played either on the three clay high school courts or on the city courts. Near the close of school five tournaments were planned to decide the best players in the various competitions. Jim Griffin, sponsor of the association, announced that arrangements will be made ahead of time to insure the tennis- men of '33 some interschool competition. This will necessitate the formation of a tennis team. If a team is formed next year, the athletic department will probably allow the lads and lassies to represent the schoolg thus making the participants eligible for minor school letters. Page 52 """'i- lf the l93l football season is remembered for only one accomplishment, it will always be known as the year that Coach Andy Gill attempted to build from 42 green but willing-to-learn gridiron aspirants Cwith three exceptions a football team that would be worthy of representing Michigan City. Al- though the results of this venture were not what one would call a howling success, the outcome was gratifying. The job of rebuilding a new eleven from a bunch of boys whose closest view at man-to-man combat had been in the first row of the movie house during the showing of "Touchdown" proved to be an exceedingly hard one. With only Jack Smith, James Grimes, and Merle Smith left from the memorable '30 season, "Andy" set out to develop a ball team. After organizing his boys into three squads, the mentor prepared for the usual hard schedule. Mr. Gill decided to test the courage and endurance of his team against some sort of a dangerous foeg so on September I9 the Red Devils tackled the alumni. When the dust of battle had cleared away, the high school toilers' new togs were quite a pitiful sight for the admiring girls to behold, the alumni were puffing away like overly-strained steam engines, and the score stood 6 to 0 in favor of the graduates. Michigan City proved that it takes more than a pretty uniform to make a football team when it very ungentlemanly-like rose to unbelievable heights and spanked the lads from the Morgan Park military academy to the tune of I8 to 0. The rebellious act took place on Gill field on September 26. The opening of the conference play was the signal for woe to overtake the local camp. Perhaps the teachers became more strict as the studies grew harder, maybe the girls who chase strong and handsome football mortals became too persistent, possibly the Morgan Park victory was too much to stand, then again it may have been that the spectators had no right to expect a great deal from a green teamg however, the fact remains that the Crimson Flash did a right-about-face and wilted before the attack of their next three opponents. The Red Devil invasion of Goshen on October 3 proved quite profitable for Goshen. Though the Gillmen displayed a determined spirit, their efforts weren't enough to keep Goshen from amassing 25 points. The Red and White stubborn attack didnit go completely to waste, for they were able to push across one touchdown for 6 points. October I8 was the clay that South Bend Central came to town to show Michigan City how Little Notre Dame plays the great American outdoor sport. A few hours before the battle Andy was heard to whisper to a close friend of the scribe that he expected to lose by 40 points. Now everyone knows that a coach isn't supposed to be a predictor of scores, for his time is taken up in guessing where such and such a player of his was the night before, so no one paid much attention to Gill's guess. Game time arrived. imagine Gill's chagrin when his prediction fell short by one point. Central had won 39 to 0 despite the resistance offered by Michigan City. On October Z4 Michigan City traveled to Riley of South Bend, and it was a much improved team who faced the contorted countenances of the fierce looking Riley eleven. Defeating the South Benders proved to be a little too hard for the local aggregation, and although they threatened to break up the ball game at any moment during the early stages of the contest, they were repulsed and finally beaten, I8 to 7. The following week Michigan City met Laporte for a bit of sociable football. The game with the ancient rivals turned out to be the high spot of the season, for the Red Devils won 30 to 6 in an encouraging manner. Townsmen who witnessed the game regardless of the downpour of rain termed the '3l season a success and let the matter go at that.

GOLF With a veteran outfit back for play this year, Coach "Daddy" Parsons and his golf course proteges seemed to be pointed for a highly successful season. ln 1931 the Big Four swept through all opposition to capture the con- ference title, and spring hopes of '32 were for the Red and White to repeat their previous performance. Bill Hall, Ed. Chlastawa, and Mose Krueger, who played the one, two, and three positions, respectively, on the Big Four outfit, were back to uphold the locals, reputation. Charles Fay loomed as the likely candidate to fill the number four position left vacant by Pete Redding, but "Chuck" was being hard pressed for the post by several hard working golfing fanatics. Golf, whose birth as a Michigan City high school sport dates back to l930, is proving itself to be a worth-while spring sport, and it won't be many years before golf will hold the center of attention in the balmy weather period. Golf, track, and tennis are balancing the Red Devil athletic diet by feeding high-pitched interest to the fans in the spring now. Good work, you conquerors of April showers and May Howers.

WRESTLING The current season's wrestling schedule for the high school wrestlers, who were under the able guidance of Coach Andy Gill, proved to be a short but highly successful one. The only two meets held outside of school were against Laporte, and in both cases the locals emerged the better matsrnen. The first meet with Laporte was held in the "Barn" on February 20. Michigan City men showed their supremacy by downing a vast majority of the Maple City representatives. The referee and judges gave the Red Devils IZ bouts to 4.

This year has seen more girls than ever taking part in the various sports. ln September, G. A. A. members met to elect their officers for the coming year. Jane l-lultgren was elected presidentg Marjorie Greening, Vice- presidentg Roma Kemena, secretaryg and Flora Beth Burnett, treasurer. The G. A. A. "Kid Party," which was held on October I7, Was a huge success. Each gym class gave a short entertainment. The prize for the cleverest costume was Won by Juanita Jesse. More girls than ever before passed the Badge Tests. Pins were awarded by the G. A. A. to those passing tests. Hockey was the first real sport on the girls' calendar with Risacher's sponsor group taking first honors. Second place was won by Shepherd, and third place was awarded to Bell's sponsor group. As soon as the hockey games were over, basketball began. Risacher's team again carried off the laurels by winning all of its games except one. Russell took second place, and Shepherd came in third. All the teams were evenly matched, and competition was strong. Volleyball next came in season. Katherine Johnson's team captured first place with one loss. Mildred Kull's team took second place, and Irene Dombrowskfs eight came in next. Page 57 GIRLS' SPORTS lContinuedl As soon as the volleyball games were played off, the gym classes began workfng for the gym show. The following program was presented: General Gymnastics, Mussette-featuring Peggy Loy, Doris Kroll, and Mary Kocikowskig Volleyballg Basketball, Mazurka, Espaniola Waltz: Black Nagg Minuetg Scarf Dance, Wand Drillg Tumblers, Baseball Drill, Schubert Waltz, Low Organized Games, and the Zouave Drill. The following committees were appointed by Miss Frances Sebesta: House Committee, Marjorie Greening, Hilda Muenster, and Helen Reeseg Program Committee, Kathleen McKee and Grace Mack, Equipment Com- mittee, Katherine Hollis. The girls presented the program on Thursday, April 28, for the P. T. A., and on the following evening gave the entertainment for the public. Miss Frances Sebesta had entire charge of the program. Baseball and track were the last activities on the girls' sport calendar. ln baseball eight teams were organized with Mildred Cofer, Emma-Jean Swan, Anita l-lyer, Fay Felske, Alice Holloway, Beatrice Duff, lrene Kubik, and Opal Gibron as captains. The annual track meet was held on Monday, May I6. Approximately 100 girls turned out for the event. The field events consisted of the running broad jump, standing broad jump, hop-skip-and-jump, baseball distance throw, and the high jump. The track event was the 50-yard dash. Each girl was allowed to enter only two of the seven events. The following girls, by merit of each winning two first places, starred in the meet: Sally -Ianke, 50- yard dash and the running broad jumpg Genevieve Peus, standing broad jump and basketball distance throw. The other three events, high jump, baseball distance throw, and hop-skip-and-jump were taken by Marjorie Peters, Betty Farrch, and Roma Kemena, respectively. ln order to win an honor sweater, a girl must play a specified number of baseball, basketball, hockey, and volley ball games. Points are given for passing the Badge Tests, taking part in the annual gym show, hikes, posture, weight, captaincy, attendance, and sportsmanship in general. A girl must have a total of 900 points to receive a sweater. This year five girls succeeded in winning these coveted rewards. They were: Sally janke, Betty Farroh, Genevieve Peus, Marjorie Peters, and Lorraine Wozniak. The remainder of the semester was spent in playing tennis on the school courts. 4 -8 -++Z'4K++- 'P 1 Page 58 ,.l.l-1.-1 ,, -i ' K 1 H , iii'-.

I was thrilled to think that I could be a guest at the sixth commencement exercises of the high school. Curiosity caused me to inquire about those students who had graduated previously. I was told that in 1871 three girls had successfully completed a three year course, and that in l872 two boys and and two girls had graduated. Josie Bloom, a member of the Class of '73, sat next to me, and in our conversation I learned that Harrison Bowes, Frank Goodwin, Rosa Hart, and Cynthia Stubbs had graduated with her. Ar the fifth commencement six young ladies and only two young gentlemen composed the class. Imagine my great surprise when Miss Bloom informed me that there were three teachers on the high school staff. At this moment there was silence. Everyone became attentive as Supt. S. E. Miller ascended the steps to the stage to give a partial summary of the activities of the Board during the current year. Mr. Miller began by saying: "The experiment of introducing a teacher of Latin and modern languages has not proved a failure, but in various ways has been a source of great benefit. "It has relieved me from hearing classes more than half my time, thereby permitting me to give more careful supervision to other departments. This work was formerly laid upon the German teacher, who, in addition to the care of her own room, had to undertake this extra work after school hours. Besides teaching Latin, German, and French, the same teacher has had charge of classes in English literature and in universal history. "The purchase by the Board of five beautiful chandeliers for the high school and of three hanging lamps for the corridors, is a provision we have long needed and one which will fully be appreciated." The program continued with orations and essays on "The Casket of Memory," "rl-rifles are the Levers that Move the World," and an essay on "Our Stocking of Life", read by Miss Carrie Chipman. All of these numbers were well received by the audience. I had the pleasure of meeting Miss Van Deusen, one of the high school teachers, who invited me to visit the classrooms at high school whenever I desired. Time changed to a week later. Upon visiting classes, I was astounded at the subjects taught- subjects such as analysis, rhetoric, natural philosophy, astronomy, geology, and etymology. In the rhetoric class Katie Bowes read her essay "As Thin as a Hair, It Casts a Shadow," which showed much careful preparation on her part, In IS79 I received a personal invitation from Willie Manny to attend his graduation exercises. Besides his oration on "Beginnings", an essay on "Monuments, the Crystallization of a Nation's Thought" was enjoyed. A pleasant feature of the exercises was the presentation of a beautiful gold-headed cane to Mr. George Ames by the children of the public schools. In a newspaper account of the commencement of I884 a complete program appeared. Such essays as "This Wretched Orb Knows Not the Taste of Rest", "The Niobe of Nations", "Apples of Sodom", and "A Plea for Crooked Sticks", were found exceptionally interesting. Mr. Orval Perkey, head of the commercial department in his report stated that his course now included usingle and double entry, of the commercial department, in his report stated that his course now included "single and double entry, Waftily my dream took me to Mozart Hall on the evening of Friday, June 26, ISB5. The hall was beautifully decorated with wreaths, ferns, and flowers. The stage was converted into a forest scene with an arch of evergreen enclosing the class. The floral offerings to the graduates were tastefully arranged in vases and bouquets. Mr. George Ames remembered the graduates, as he has done in former years, with a framed engraving of himself and a photograph of the high school building. Suddenly I turned to a newspaper. It couldn't have been the Crimson Comet! The paper I saw was a copy of the "High School Herald". Everyone in school contributed to it, and it was read every month at the Lyceum. Plank pavementse-deep ditches on the side! Whew! How changeable the scenes are! All I can see are deep ditches, more plank pavements, and a residential section extending down to 4th Street from whence begins the business section. The next thing I knew I was on a street car drawn by a mule. Every once in a while the driver would hit the animal with a long pole used for that purpose. My attention was diverted to the Orr Brothers' Saw Mill in the block between 4th and 5th Streets. As we rode farther, I saw the first skyscraper west of Buffalo, New York. It appeared to be the Elston Hotel building on the corner of 2nd and Franklin Streets. The scene changed, and I was attempting to climb a huge sand dune-Hoosier Slide. The sand was perfectly beautiful, so white and clean. I heard quite a commotion and upon investigating found that on the very top a marriage was being performed. Suddenly I lost my balance and started to roll down the side of the dune. Upon reaching the bottom with a thud, I found to my disgust that I, had fallen out of bed and that the bottom of the dune was in reality the floor. Thus my dream ended- a perfect mix-up in fact-but still evoking pleasant memories of what used to be. -Jane Carlson. REMINISCENCES I I -- Page 59 HISTORY OF MICHIGAN CITY, INDIANA Michigan City has been the scene of many strugglesg tomahawk, scalping knife, and war club have menaced it, and the white man has slept on his gun. This territory, once a vast wild, is now the scene of intelligent civilization, teeming with people, mills, factories, schools, churches, and all that denotes enterprise, culture, and prosperity. The Miami Confederation of Indian tribes are supposed to have been the early proprietors of the site of Michigan City. The hrst white settler and man who laid out the settlement was Major Isaac C. Elston, who came here in 1832 and constructed a primitive cabin. Major Elston and his small weary band of hardy frontiersmen, all skilled in woodcraft and who had come to carve for themselves homes in the forest, found nothing about the site of the present city to hint of future importancega sluggish estuary, early named Trail Creek, creeping tortuously through marshes and sand to the lake, and back of it dense forests, great sand piles, and an almost trackless waste. Major Elston was soon followed by others. The earliest skilled craftsman of whom we have knowledge was Thompson W. Francis, the first carpenter in the county to work regularly at the trade. Francis arrived on March I6, I833, and, as he afterwards said, "Found there Samuel Miller and Joseph C. Orr." These were then the two inhabitants of the place, and the newcomer made the third, for he became a permanent resident. He was a carpenter, builder, architect, and contractor, and he constructed the first house, the first hotel, the school and church, and many of the pioneer buildings in the city. . Many of the original inhabitants of the growing little hamlet were young, and so far the only family to be mentioned is that of joseph C. Orr. The fact that a school was started in I834 shows the presence of children. A newspaper writer of this period writes thus: "The advantages which this place possesses are manifold. Contiguous to us are the fertile and beautiful prairies with an adequate number of delightful groves as well as an endless variety of the finest forest timber, and all these interspersed with streams which afford mill seats ample in capacity and numbers for all purposes." In I835 the spread of the town continued, new stores and hotels were opened, among them the Daniel Low, Ames and Holliday stores, and james S. Castle founded the first newspaper, the Michigan City Gazette. Dr. Lee H. T. Maxson, the first physician, came and was followed in the same year by Dr. W. Chamberlain, while the first law office was opened by Jabez R. Wells. Until the reorganization of the fire department in I88I, the people with their water buckets had been the only means of extinguishing fires. This step marked the departure from the old style of volunteer fire companies, with their regalia, their uniforms, their annual dinners ,and exuberant rivalry. Today all the elements of a modern fighting machine are here. Gallatin Ashton was the first regular teacher in Michigan City. From Daniel IVI. l..eaming's fthe school commissioner in IS37J books we learn that at that time Michigan Township was allotted for school purposes, 25157.75 from the sale of non-resident lands, certainly a small sum to apply to education. The uniform educational system became operative in I853. This marked the date of advance into the present satisfactory plan of public instruction. The organization of the public library was effected in May, I896. It is the policy of the library to cooperate with and to further in every way possible the educational and industrial interests of the people of Michigan City and to give them the best it can in the way of recreative reading. All shades of religious thought find expression here. The city has many churches, some of magnificent proportions and architecture, in which well-educated men minister to congregations thoroughly representative in numbers and position. The first newspaper published in Michigan City was the Michigan City Gazette, and the first number appeared on July 8, I835. This was also the first newspaper published in Laporte County, There are now two newspapers published: The News, the oldest, taken over in I888 by Charles Robb, and the Dispatch, which was started on December 4, IS79, by Harry C. Francis. In I858 there was a movement to establish a second prison in Indiana. The commissioners appointed for the purpose of selecting a location for the prison chose Michigan City, giving as their reasons, that here could be found railroads in three directions and that competitive rates were available, that stone and lumber could be had here cheaper than in any other point in northern Indiana. To the man of business and the manufacturer seeking a base for industrial operations, Michigan City presents opportunities immeasurably superior to those of many other interior cities. The transportation facilities, both by rail and water, are unexcelled and through its gates pass the products of the mills and factories of the East, as well as the enormous yields of the prairies and orchards of the great West. Up to the time of the Civil War, Michigan City was little else than a country village, but from the close of the struggle, its march of progress has been gratifying. It has every opportunity, and it is safe to predict that the future historian will be proud to point back to things of today as the auspicious beginnings of a greater and brighter destiny. -Marjorie Greening. Page 60 "l-l"'l' A Legend of the Dune Country The story of the arrow was slowly unraveled from the tangled thread of interrupted narrative related to us by old Waukena. She was a remnant of the Pottawattomies. She cherished the traditions of her people, and their sorrows lingered in her heart. When she was quite young, her mother had given her a headless arrow. Nearly a hundred years ago an old arrow maker up the river had fashioned the shaft for Little Turtle, a young hunter who hoped to kill a particular bald eagle with it. For a long time the bird had eluded Little Turtle, but it finally fell when the bow sent the weapon into its breast. The victor proudly bore his trophy to his bark canoe and paddled clown the stream to Whippoorwill Bayou, to a grotto where he was to meet Nebowie, his love. For months the grotto had been their trysting place. Nebowie's father, lVloose Jaw, a scarred old warrior, had promised his daughter to White Wolf, a tall, low-browed, villainous looking savage who had once saved Moose Jaw from an untimely death. White Wolf had learned the secret of Nebowie and Little Turtle, after stealthily haunting the neighbor- hood of the bayou for weeks. White Wolf went on the path of vengeance. His visits to Moose Jaw, which had once been frequent, were now discontinued, and the old man, thinking that White Wolf's ardor had cooled, was reconciled to the union of Little Turtle and Nebowie, and hoped that the debt to White Wolf could be discharged in some other way. White Wolf occasionally came up the river, but his connection with the affairs of the community, whose little habitations were scattered widely through the woods beyond the bayou, was considered a thing of the past. Little Turtle was highly esteemed by the men of his village, and two years after his marriage was made its chief. ' The following spring Little Turtle failed to return from a general powwow of the tribe in the country of the dunes, near the mouth of the St. Joseph, about eighty miles away. Nebowie pined in anguish for the home- coming, and White Wolf waited for her sorrow to pass. She finally carried her aching heart to a kindly counselor in a little mission house up the river. The "black robe" told Nebowie to take her sorrow to the white man's deity and gave her a small silver crucifix as a token that would bring divine consolation and peace. Nebowie carried her cross, but the months brought no surcease. lnto her heart crept the belief that the magic of the Black Robes God was futile. Nebowie disappeared, and when she returned, she hammered her cross into an arrowhead, bound it with deer sinew to the hickory shaft of the arrow with which Little Turtle had killed the bald eagle and meditated upon the hour of her revenge. One evening in the early fall White Wolf returned from a hunting trip over the marshes. A shadowy form moved silently among the trees. There was a low whir, and something sped through the dusk. When they found White Wolf in the morning, the hair on one side of his head was matted with blood, and a small hole led into his brain, but there was no clue to the author of the tragedy. Nebowie continued her home life with her father and her little one, but tranquillity was written on her face. The silver of the arrow point had achieved a mission that had failed when it bore the form of a cross.
