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
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
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

THE BOARD OF EDUCATION
Most of us students do not realize the important part that the Board of
Education plays in our school life. 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.
MARTHA HALLER ALMA SCHILF
Financial Secretary Assistant Secretary
Although the members of our class have
not been in direct contact with Mr. Murray, our
superintendent, we fully realize the great pro-
gress which he has made in organization and
efficiency. 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.

l HISTORY OF ISAAC C. ELSTON I-IIGI-I SCHOOL
in the lower classes. 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
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
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

SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS AND HISTORY
As the battle-scarred Senior Class fbattle-scarred from their struggle with
knowledgel leave dear old IVI. 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

IVIERLE SMITH JOHN SEGNITZ
JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS AND HISTORY
Even the Wise and Witty juniors were once Ufreshiesf' Aren't you
surprised? 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.

SOPHOMORE CLASS OFFICERS AND HISTORY
Did you know that-
The Class of 1934 entered Senior high school as freshmen?
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-
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?

FRESI-IMAN CLASS OFFICERS AND HISTORY
One can hardly walk down the hall or turn a corner in M. 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.

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,
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
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
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.
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.
First Row: Myers, Miller, Spiers, Kennington, jackson, Dean, Toannacci, Segnitz, Troutwine, and
Thompson. Second Row: Gill, jurgensen, Catron, Fox, Young, De Mass, Voss, Behnke, and Kubilc.
Third Row: Anlcony, Ernst, Cota, Nye, Hoodwin, Aemmer, Kieskowski, Staiger, and Hutton. Fourth Row:
Nlessner, Tuthill, Martz, Hollingsead, Ehninger, Tuthill, Ranck, Parsons, Turnpaugh, Fausch, and lrgang.
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
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,
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.

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.

THE GIRLS' LEAGUE
The Girls' League is a Welfare organization, open to all girls in school.
It was first organized in the spring of l93l. Mary Garrettson, Marjorie
Greening, and Rose Joseph were elected as president, vice-president, and
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.
Front Row: Perham, Cochran. Stark, and Greenebaum. Back Row: Ehninger, and Miss Mack.
The debating team of I93I-1932 has brought many honors home to our
school. 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
3. Affirmative vs. Central negative 6. AHiirmative vs. Riley Negative
Home--Won. At South Bend-Won.
Cemetery lots formed the plot of the three-act farce-comedy, "A Lucky Break," which the juniors
presented on Friday, November I3. The action of the play takes place in the office of Hotel Mullett in
a little town in Connecticut, Matasquam. The returns of the presentation were used by the Class of l933
to help finance the Junior Prom.

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
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. '
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.
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
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.

BAS KET BALL
Michigan City's first "versus" in the regional was Emerson of Gary, the
team that had spanked us, 33-l 7. 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. The miracle of

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.
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. The prison city team placed third with ZI 5X6 points.
The last meet which the sports department of this book could record was
run off at Laporte on April Z3 and was won by the Slicers. Michigan City
took second place in the quadrangular affair, scoring 45 IX3 points-3 IX3
points less than the winner's total.

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-
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.

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
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.

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

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

The activities of the girls in athletics have increased every year. 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.
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

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.

One night I dreamed that I passed back a few score years to the days of the 70's and 'S0's. 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"
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,

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.

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.

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.
THE SILVER ARROW I

"Everything comes to him who Waitsf,
l once heard a fellow say.
"Yes, l believe that is certainly true,"
Said his partner across the Way.
If We faithfully Wait and just plug awayg
We are sure to get what we Want, someday.
So they sit and wait, their dreams astray,
As they think of tomorrow instead of today.
lVly views were quite different, and so l replied,
"That sounds like a dreary, old song.
To me it lacks sense, and 'tho it's been tried,
ls uncertain and takes very long.
Hard Work done before and after the gong
ls far greater insurance than just plugging along
'Gainst becoming merely a part of the throng,
And will Win after dreams are forgotten and gone."
Then l studied and Worked both hard and late.
While they, preferring to dream,
Were content just to keep on plugging away
And to criticize my scheme.
They laughed and said l was terribly green,
'Twas ridiculous to do such a silly thing,
That l was eccentric could plainly be seen,
f'Cause l would not agree with their Wonderful dream.,
But it's my turn now, and l'm laughing at them
For the way they ridiculed me.
For my scheme is Working as l knew it would when
l began its merits to see.
l'm getting the things which they said couldn't be,
And a source of the greatest satisfaction to me
ls the fact that l'm free of the uncertainty
Of just plugging along to eternity.
--C. A. E
WITI-I APOLOC-BIES TO JOYCE KILMER
l think that l shall never blame
A boy who says, "School Work's a pain!"
A fellow who lies in bed till eight,
And then who runs, and still is late,
A fellow who looks at the sky all day,
And wishes he were out at playg
One who yawns every now and then
And Wishes he had been in at ten.
l think that l shall never blame
The guy who says that life is tameg
One who says, "School Work's a bore,"
And the very next day' comes back for more.
