Text from Pages 1 - 104 of the 1934 volume:

In presenting this, the 1934 Elstonian, we, the staff, have endeavored to incorporate within the pages of this volume, a record, both graphic and pictorial, of the many friendships, experiences, and incidents of high school days that linger with the graduating seniors only as delightful memories. If we have accomplished these desired ends, whose execution you have intrusted to us, we shall feel more than repaid for our efforts.To the various nationalities of Michigan City, who, in search of greater happiness in their march through life, have come to America, and thus have helped to affix upon these United States the distinction of the "melting pot of the world , we, the Class of 1934, respectfully dedicate this memorial of our high school achievements.Michigan City is a community made up, by and largely, of individually occupied homes. Unlike many of our American cities, there is no predominant style of architecture, but throughout the town one finds the influence of the architecture of the Old World in the building of Michigan City homes.One need not travel far to view the romantic hacienda of Spain, or the imposing villa of Italy, or the quaint chalet of Switzerland, or the mysterious mosque of Syria, or the stately mansion of England. As the varied nationalities have come into this locality, so have their styles of architecture appeared, to project a bit of the fancy and romance of an old world into a new. All the glamour and charm of a Spanish estate is reflected in the Scholl home on Long Beach, a bit of the lofty Alpine beauty is discovered in the unique Swiss design of the Arnt dwelling. The placid attractiveness of an Italian villa is intimated in the graceful lines of the Cotto habitation. From the rustic log cabin comes the suggestion of Canadian wilds and streams and forests. In the Abraham home is found a glimmering of the delightful touch of the mystic which is associated with the alluring Orient; in direct contrast the Hays mansion has all of the distinctions of the conservative English dwelling. Thus have the various styles fused to present in Michigan City a versatile type of architecture.OF C ON IS A Jg§)7 CLUD-R 4- SECTIONS.

Figures which show the relative numbers of the first and the last graduation classes, along with the spacious construction of today’s senior high school in relation to the quaint building which housed the first group of seniors, attest only too well the soundness of the statement. The first group to graduate, in 1871, numbered three—Alice Brett, Sarah Farrar, and Mary Behan—but since then the number has steadily increased until now it stands at well over one hundred and fifty students. The old high school lodged the scholastic public until 1876, when the Central School was built because of the demand for larger accommodations. The period of time in which the school was located here terminated abruptly when fire destroyed the building in 1896. While the building was being reconstructed, classes were held in Barker Hall and other places about the town. However, the building soon became inadequate, and an Isaac C. Elston High School, now the Junior High School, was erected at Detroit and Spring Streets in 1909. Again the enrollment became too large, and the present Isaac C. Elston Senior High School was constructed in 1924. Classes were opened in it in 1925, and the Class of 26 was the first to graduate from the new school. The Class of ’34 entered the school in 1930 and is the ninth to be graduated from this building. I 1D. M. HUTTON President HENRY MILLER Secretary THERON MILLER Treasurer THE BOARD OF EDUCATION Although the Board of Education is brought into contact with the students only indirectly, it is the guiding influence of our school system and plays an important part in the destinies of our scholastic life. We appreciate the deep interest which the members take in us, and in return we wish them success and happiness in their work. 12 MARTHA HALLF.R Financial Secretary ALMA SCHILF Assistant SecretaryIt is with the greatest regard that we refer to Mr. Knapp, our principal, who has piloted us safely through the storms of our high school career into the port of graduation. We deeply appreciate his untiring interest in our individual problems and extend our sincerest wishes for success and happiness in whatever he may undertake. In his capacity as superintendent, Mr. Murray is only indirectly connected with the high school students; yet his deserving qualities and progressive leadership have leaped this gap and have won for him a place in the heart of every student. We congratulate him upon his achievements and sincerely hope for bountiful success in his further ventures. 13FACULTY L. vV. Smith Chemistry Albion College. A. B.; lTni versify of Illinois. M. A.

They resembled an inexperienced crew taking their first voyage, for they were embarking on the Sea of Wisdom, and all were eager to arrive at their goal, the Port of Graduation. After boarding the ship "Freshman Year", the crew set sail. Helen Bell was made captain; Frank Shadel, mate; and Robert Fox, second mate. Miss Southgate and Mr. Parsons were chosen to sponsor the voyage. Although the passage was rough, most of the crew persevered in the course of their school life. As a welcome diversion, they attended the Freshman-Sophomore party. By that time, they had almost reached the next port. Here they boarded the good ship "Sophomore Year." At this point, they changed officers, making Robert Fox captain; Winona Auiler, mate; and Lois Ericson, second mate. Because of the rough seas of Failure encountered on all sides, the crew choose Miss Dahlberg and Mr. Parsons to assist them. This year, they gave their first contribution to high school entertainment — the Freshman-Sophomore party, which proved to be a great success. Next year, they discovered that many of the passengers had dropped off the course. However, the remainder of the crew started out on the ship "Junior Year," even though they knew that the sailing would be rougher than ever. This time, John Hirschmann was elected captain; Robert Fox became mate, while George Goris was elected second mate. They were assisted by Miss Zink and Mr. Neff. This year, they took an active part in high school life. The Junior Play, "The Three Graces", was dramatized very capably, with leads taken by Mildred Volksdorf and Elvin Schroeder. The Junior-Senior Prom, the next event in their school life, was eagerly awaited by everyone. Eight members of the class achieved distinction when they became members of the Honor Society. The Goal of Graduation was very near now—only a year away. The remainder of the crew were careful in selecting capable leaders to steer the students wisely through the reefs of Failure. The captain was John Hirschmann. Ellen Troy was elected mate, while Helena Cornay became second mate. Special help and guidance were given by Miss Shepherd and Mr. Neff. There were many passengers who distinguished themselves on their four-year voyage. In football, our representatives were Captain Fred Ritter. Shipley Farroh, Virgil Isenbletter, Felix Jankowski, and Peter LaRocca. Outstanding members of the basketball team were Edward Susnis, James Fausch, James Blanford, and Robert Fox. When the season for track arrived. James Blanford, Wallace Darmon, Shipley Farroh, Edward Susnis, Arnold Cota, and Kenneth Burklow proved their ability. Our wrestlers included Felix Jankowski. Richard Fleming, and Peter LaRocca. Ten seniors were initiated into the Honor Society. Early in the year, twenty-one pupils started work on the Elstonian staff. Tire annual Discussion League contest was won by Karl Hilberg, Richard Kunkel. and Mildred Volksdorf. Late in April, the Senior Class play, "Peter Flies High", was given, coached by Miss Shepherd. Dorothy Bard and John Hirschmann took the leading parts, supported by a capable cast. Many other students were prominent in different activities. At the conclusion of our graduation exercises, our voyage ended. The difficulties of the course were forgotten, for we knew that, in reaching the Port of Graduation, we had finally attained our goal. 18SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS 1934 19SENIOR Ahlgrim, Norman Albright, Louis Angrick, Barbara G.

OUR HERO NINA LIBRARY HAPKE MAESTRO WILD FLOWER DEAN' SEA DEVIL 2ttJUNIOR OFFICERS AND HISTORY With enthusiasm and vigor the Class of 1935 took its place as juniors. Their varied talents and their smiling faces, as shown in the pictures of their sponsor groups on the next page, helped to make our high school a more successful one. Their sponsor teachers who have helped them achieve success are Mrs. Anderson. Miss Lee. Miss Munson. Miss Southgate. Mr. Troyer. Mr. Smith. Mr. Ten Harkel. Mr. Long, and Mr. Griffin. In their freshman year, they elected as president. Eugene Pepple; as vice-president. Sally Stevens; and as secretary-treasurer, Leo Kominiarek. The girls were pleasantly entertained at a tea given by the Girls’ League, and both boys and girls reported having a splendid time at the Freshman-Sophomore Party. As the class marched on to its sophomore year, Eugene Pepple was again elected president. Leo Kominiarek was chosen vice-president. and William Verganc. secretary-treasurer. With the assistance of Mrs. Bell and Mr. Maxey as class sponsors, the sophomores royally entertained the freshmen at the annual Freshman-Sophomore Party. The rest of the year was spent in studying and in taking an active part in the various school organizations. Upper-classmen at last! Because of his fine executive ability and charming personality. Eugene Pepple was elected head of his class for the third year. The other officers chosen were: vice- president, Armilda Allison, and secretary. Lois Fabian. The Class of ’35 elected Miss Dahlberg and Mr. Smith to help guide them through this important year. The Junior Play. “Her Friend the King", with Dorothy Austin and Maurice Mahns in the leading roles and with Miss Shepherd coaching, was hailed as a success by their fellow students. Other leads were enacted by Jean Robinson and Joe Morgan. The loyal candy sellers at all football and basketball games were: Lois Fabian, Armilda Allison. Irene Roames, Charlene Lukow, and Loretta Kush. Charles Kennedy and Gilbert Johnson were always on hand to help the girls. This class also conceived the idea of selling "hot-dogs" at football games. This new fancy was enthusiastically received by the entire student body, as shown by the number many of us ate at one game alone. To climax a most successful year, the juniors entertained the seniors at the Prom, amidst blue and silver trimmings, and wished them happiness and success in life.

As their first officers this Class of ’37 elected Willis Long, president; Russell Berry, vice-president; and Carter Manny, secretary-treasurer. Miss Burns and Mr. Irgang were chosen as sponsors. With the help of their sponsors and under the leadership of their officers, the class marched merrily on.

The Girls’ League welcomed the freshmen girls at a tea. Many of the class enrolled in school clubs and musical organizations. You have made a fine start, freshmen ; keep it up.

The purpose of the Student Council is to promote cooperation between students and teachers in bettering the school and supervising citizenship. The Council is composed of two representatives from each junior and senior sponsor group, and one representative from each freshman and sophomore sponsor room. Scholastic elegibility is the only requirement made for retaining membership in the Council. Much credit for the progress made in student cooperative government is due to the work of the joint sponsors. Miss Mabel Engstrom and Mr. George Irgang. The first semester Council was led by Richard Kunkcl, Lillian Baughman, and Lorraine Dean, who were president, vice-president, and secretary. respectively. At the mid-year election Robert Fox was chosen president; Elvin Schroeder. vice-president; and Lois Ericson, secretary. The principal activity of the Council was confined to the solution of the problems of congestion and untidiness in the halls. Minor activities included investigations and the applica- 42COUNCIL lion of remedies in such cases as bells out of order, clocks not being right, problems arising in the boys’ sponsor leagues, and unjust ninth periods. Miss Munson’s sponsor group of junior girls worked in conjunction with the Council on the hall question. and their combined efforts caused a great improvement in school affairs. The Council is composed of various committees which give special attention to the more important activities. The Social committee has charge of arranging material on the main bulletin board and of placing posters in the building. The members also serve as ushers. The Executive committee has charge of the assembly and library and chooses monitors to assist in its work. ITe Judicial committee sits as a court and tries cases in which a student contests a ninth period, or in which a monitor has been given a ninth period. Hie Social committee, along with the faculty representatives, passes on and sets the dates for all social functions in the school. Miss Engstrom is the faculty advisor for the Council, while Mr. Irgang has charge of the hall patrolmen and monitors. Front row—Engstrom (advisor), K. Fox (president).

Schaeffer assuming the role of sponsor for the Intermediate Hi-Y, this group enjoyed one of the best years it has ever known. The officers of the club from January 1933 until January 1934 were: Russell Gilmore, president; Lester Anderson, vice-president; Harvey Wellnitz. secretary-treasurer; and Frank Wellnitz, sergeant-at-arms. One of the outstanding projects of the year was the annual Hi-Y Halloween Party, in which the Intermediates cooperated with the Senior club. At Thanksgiving the boys adopted a family and provided it with baskets of food, and at Christmas they played Santa Claus, bringing food and gifts. Hie regular work of the year was centered about the study of Vocational Guidance, and members of the group prepared talks on the many phases of various vocations. Bernard Harris has been elected to serve as president until January 1935; Chester Beebe as vice-president; Leo Sands as secretary-treasurer; and Willis Long as sergeant-al-arms. 44SENIOR Hl-Y Phe Senior Hi-Y enjoyed a very successful year under ihe leadership of Robert Fox. the president; John Hirschmann. vice-president; Ralph Rosenberg, secretary-treasurer; and Richard Kunkel. sergeant-at-arms. Mr. George Irgang was sponsor. The Hi-Y was host at the Older Boys’ Conference held in Michigan City on December I, 2. and 3. Mr. B. A. Schncll. General Secretary of Hi-Y work in Indiana, was in charge. Dr. Frank D. Slutz. vocational worker of Dayton. Ohio, was the principal speaker. Mr. Leonard Smith of Michigan City was in charge of devotionals during the period. Joe Devadanam. an Indian youth, gave the boys a very interesting talk on "World Brotherhood." The Hallowe’en Party this year was bigger and better than ever. The ghost walk and side-shows were regular attractions, while the crowning event of the evening was the coronation of the queen. Barbara Gale. The Laporte Hi-Y came to Michigan City for a joint meeting on November 20. The speaker on this occasion was Monsignor Michael Abraham, who gave an address on his experiences in the Holy Land. The year was climaxed with the retreat held at Posey Chapel on Sunday, May 20.

Each year a group of graduating seniors is selected to compile and present, in the year book, the outstanding events of the high school life of the Senior Class. I he members of the 1934 staff were selected by the class officers and class sponsors, the selection being made on the basis of individual talent. The all-round fitness of the 1934 Elstonian is largely due to the untiring efforts of Elwin Greening, editor-in-chief. The financial success of the book may be credited to the business manager. John Garrettson; his assistant, Arnold Cota; and the advertising manager. Martin Katz, assisted by Paul Carlson. Roger Utley, circulation manager, was responsible for the campaign and distribution. Marie Shultz was the power behind the art work, while Richard Fleming provided ideas for the feature pages. I he activities write-ups were provided by Helen Frances Crosby and Sally Miller, activities editors, whereas the literary work may be credited to Doris Bengston. James Fausch and Helen Bell were boys’ and girls' sports editors, respectively. • The snapshots were collected by Victor Herbert and Lyle Estes. while Irene Dombkowski and Hermina Bruemmer did the typing. Mildred Volksdorf was class editor, while Kenneth Geiger, faculty editor, gathered the material dealing with the teaching staff. Adena Kieffcr, as Senior Class editor, collected the data on the seniors. 46THESPIANS The Muses carefully guard ihe entrance to this honorary organization the Thespians. Admittance is gained only by proving one’s dramatic ability. A major role in either the Junior or Senior play or minor parts in three plays makes one eligible for membership. The Thespians is a national honorary society and has for its purpose the promotion of high school dramatics. The Mich-igan City chapter, troupe number ninety-one, was organized in 1930 by Miss Shepherd, along with eleven charter members. The club holds monthly meetings at which discussions on various phases of dramatics are held. The presentation of plays is also an important activity of the group. Members of the troupe also usher at plays given during the year. Nine members from the troupe last year returned to school in September. After the Junior play, four new members were initiated; after the Senior play four joined the troupe, making a total membership of seventeen for the ear. The program for the year consisted of discussions on make-up. stage terms, and rules for acting. Several one-act plays were also presented. The annual banquet for the members and the alumni was held at Mrs. Peterson’s Tea Room on December twenty-eight. The officers of the organization were: Fay Felske. president ; Dorothy Chandler, vice-president; and Elvin Schroeder. secretary-treasurer. Front row Robinson. Pacholke. v Felske, Baumgarten. Troy.

The plot was woven in a mythical foreign country, Con stantia, around the deposed King George, who has been exiled through a revolution. He plans to marry his daughter Lydia to Prince Otto of a nearby country. Lydia refuses, and the rejected but undaunted Otto assumes the disguise of plain Mr. Jones to continue his attentions to the Princess. Lydia, meanwhile, has appropriated the name of Miss Smith an«l taken up residence with Mrs. Hastings, an American widow who is using her money to aid King George in regaining his throne, and with Miss Bidgerton. her chaperon. Mr. Jones and Miss Smith become acquainted and fall in love; King George escapes an attempted assassination and regains his throne through the aid of Mrs. Hastings; and so the story ends. The play was very well given and the characters were ably interpreted. Miss Goldie Shepherd acted as coach. The cast of characters was as follows: Mrs. Hastings. King George... Princess Lydia. Prince Otto Miss Bidgerton Sea riot ti .... Tornetto........ Prince Churak.. Phelps..........

April 13, in the Junior High School auditorium. Fho purpose was to raise funds for the Flstonian. The story of the play is built around Peter Turner, a likeable young chap, who returns from Florida, a hero after killing a mad dog. He takes an option on some property, which he has heard discussed, thinking that a golf course is to be built on it. He gains home support but is disgraced when the dog turns out to be a little fox terrier, and the big men he connected with the property deny knowing him. Judy Walker, his sweetheart, comes to his aid. and they make a fortune when an air transportation company buys the land for an eastern terminal.

It is the duty of Kenneth Green, the president, to have charge of all program services. The vice-president. Paul Dolembo. has charge of the annual band and orchestra party, which is held at the close of each school year, and in addition he assumers the duties of the president if necessary. Richard Ferguson, the secretary, performs all clerical duties. The first big event of the year was the sixth annual concert on May 9. Guy Foreman, winner of the annual senior orchestra conducting award, conducted the number “Farandale". The orchestra played at many public affairs and on numerous social occasions during the year. However the group, usually one of the high ranking contestants in the annual district and state contests, did not compete this year. 50BAND The band had one of its biggest years during the 1933-1934 season. Among its activities were included: playing at all home football and basketball games, playing in the Mardi Gras parade, providing music for the Michigan Blossom Festival, providing entertainment for the P. T. A. and the Parent-Music Club, playing at the annual automobile show, furnishing a convocation program for the student body on April 19. participating in the District Band Contest on April 21 at Laporte. and presenting a program during National Music Week. At the District Band Contest the band, the string ensemble, the string quartette, and the saxaphone quartette won first division honors. Kenneth Green took first division individual honors for the clarinet, while Robert Jay placed first for the bass horn. The woodwind quintette won second division honors. Individual second division honors went to Alfred Lohse, bass horn: Junior Wendt, cornet; and Daniel Chinskc, baritone.

E. Ten Harkel, progressed on the path of success during the 1933-1934 season. The officers of the organization were: Richard Kunkcl. president ; Lillian Baughman, vice-president; Elizabeth Steinke, secretary-treasurer; Lucille Ericson, librarian; and Helen Moss, accompanist. The Glee Club took part in the Northern Indiana Chorus at South Bend. Groups from the organization sang for five Parent-Teachers' Associations, and the entire club journeyed to Gary on November 10 to broadcast over station WIND. Music was furnished at the Mother-Son and Mother-Daughter Banquets by members of the group. On May 4 the Glee Club presented the operetta "Gypsy Rover" in the Junior High Auditorium.

Membership in the Girls’ League is open to all high school girls, the only requirement being attendance at five meetings. The League was organized in 1931 and is a member of the Chicago Suburban High School League. A series of personality talks, given by the Reverend Earl Ray Hart, Mrs. Bell, Harold Allison, and Alice Kenefick, composed one of the most interesting and unusual features of the programs for the year. All other programs but one, which was given by the boys for an added variety, were given by the members of the club. Tire social activities of the League included a party to welcome the freshmen girls, and a tea in May. The welfare group of the League, under the supervision of Miss Zink, sponsored a party for a number of poor children at Christmas time. The girls of this group worked at the Clinic and Saint Anthony’s Hospital, rolling bandages and making various kinds of hospital supplies, and they also helped in Red Cross work. Six of the members of the L.eague attended the Girls’ conference, which was held in Highland Park, Illinois, in April. Two hundred suburban high schools were represented by five hundred girls. The officers for the year were Lois Ericson, president; Fay Felske, vice-president; and Jean Robinson, secretary. Miss Munson is the faculty sponsor. ART CLUB Although organized only a short time ago. the Art Club is one of the leading high school organizations. During the last semester, programs featured such artists as Mr. Homer Davis, Mr. Frank Wentland. Mr. John Correll, and Mr. William Nelson, illustrating all phases of art. Members of the club also gave programs. An interesting project of the club was organized art work done by the members during the summer vacation. Some members took sketching trips, others did work in clay modeling and in other crafts. All the work that was done during the summer vacation was brought to school in September. The club also sponsored a sketch group, which met each Tuesday after school. Miss Risacher is the faculty sponsor of the Art Club. The officers for the first semester were: Marie Shultz, president: Helena Cornay, vice-president; and Emily Kern, secretary. Those for the second semester were Rose Neid, president; Pat Peat, vice-president; and Lucille Steele, secretary. 54GERMAN CLUB The German Club, made up of students who have had at least one semester of German, has a two-fold purpose—to enlarge the members’ vocabularies and to aid the members in gaining a greater appreciation of German art, German music, and German literature. Miss Wilhelmina Munson is the sponsor of the organization. The officers of the German Club from September to January were: Jerome Moritz, president: Elwin Greening, vice-president: and Harriet Kambs, secretary. The second semester officers were: Kathleen Jantzen, president; Halcyone Johnson, vice-president: and Lois Fabian, secretary. The programs, consisting of talks and articles on German art, music, and literature, were pleasantly varied by occasional introductions of German games. One of the outstanding programs of the year was a talk on German colleges by Miss Emma Schwabenland, history instructor. The social high spots of the year were reached in the German Club banquet and in the German Club outing. The former was a dinner party and boasted a menu of typical German dishes, while the latter, held during the spring semester, was a picnic. Delightful student programs of German games and songs composed the entertainment on both occasions. FRENCH CLUB France, all of France—its songs, its dances, its people, its art, and its scenery—interests the French Club. Their programs are made up of the songs, the dances, the music, and the literature of France or of anything that pertains to France. During the year this group had many amusing and unusual programs and parties. Le Cercle Francais was organized in 1932 under the supervision of Miss Mellie Luck. Anyone having taken one year of French is eligible to join the club. Officers of the club are: president, Joel Dilworth; vice-president. Genevieve Barenie; and secretary, Lois Stinchcomb. Miss Mellie Luck is the faculty advisor. LATIN CLUB Rome and its language and customs are the reigning interests of the Latin Club. The programs at each meeting consist of instructive material pertaining to the Roman city, and several times during the past year men who have visited Rome have appeared before the club in illustrated lectures of their travels. At the close of each school year the club holds its banquet. This year's gathering featured a delightful dinner and an amusing play The officers of the organization are Jean Robinson, president; Dale Wilkins, vice-president; and Marjorie Ohming, secretary. The sponsor of the club is Mrs. Russell. 35BOOSTERS’ CLUB The Boosters' Club—organized in 1934 by Mr. Ellis, Mr. Gill, Mr. Maxey. Joe Bodine, and Felix Jankowski, with a motto of "Boost Athletics"— aims to create in the school and community an intense interest in the development of athletes and athletics. To qualify for membership, a boy must be passing in all his subjects and must have attended a meeting of the club, previous to his admission. The organization was the sponsoring institution of sponsor league basketball and baseball, the N. 1. FI. S. C. "B team tournament, and the intramural tennis tourney. Members of the club conducted several interesting pep sessions. At the pep session before the sectional tournament the members of the club presented a hilarious and comic combat between Michigan City and Laporte. Mr. Neville Williams, a football player of 1920, wished the team success on the part of the administration of the city. At the pre-regional pep session Mr. Ellis spoke, and Mr. Griffin presented a very humorous speech in which he impersonated the members of the team. Bill Vergane spoke for the team; members of former teams wished the present tarn success. The members of the club assumed full responsibility for all the pep sessions given. The club supervised a poster campaign for the teams, maintained a check room at basketball games, and helped at track meets. Officers elected for the first semester were Joe Bodine. Fred Ritter, and Felix Jankowski, who served as president, vice-president, and secretary-treasurer, respectively. During the second semester Felix Jankowski headed the Boosters' Club; George Goris was elected vice-president; and Joe Bodine, secretary-treasurer. Mr. Maxey was the faculty advisor. LETTERMEN’S CLUB The purpose of the Lettermen’s Club is to further and promote clean athletics and to bind together the lettermen of the various high school sports. In order to gain membership in this organization, which was begun in 1924-25, one must earn a letter in any of the recognized sports. This group supervises school sports, makes laws regarding letters, and upholds the honor that accompanies the wearing of a monogram. The club also elects student representatives who are members of the Faculty Sports Committee. The high spot of the social year was the Second Annual Banquet which was held at the Elks Temple during the latter part of May. Two-hundred and fifty persons, of whom two-hundred were lettermen, heard Noble Kizer, director of athletics at Purdue University, present an interesting address on football. The famous coach illustrated his talk with motion pictures, demonstrating the fundamentals of the game. The officers of the club for the year were: Fred Ritter, president; James Fausch, vice-president; and Felix Jankowski, secretary-treasurer. 56ATHLETICSLOREN ELLIS Basketball Coach T. A. GILL Football and Track Coach Coach Andy Gill completed his thirteenth football season at Michigan City last fall. His teams, while not winning a state championship at any time, have always ranked among the best in the state and conference. Very seldom has he had a team, if ever, that could win consistently with plain brute strength. Andy is the type of coach that combines this strength with plenty of headwork. Still possessing some of the fire and pep that made him famous at Indiana University and in the Big Ten. he has bsen successful in passing some of this to all the boys with whom he has had direct contact. Besides his football coaching duties. Andy also has charge of the track team in the spring. The outstanding light in Coach Loren Ellis’ coaching career at our high school was the molding of the first regional championship team Michigan City had seen in eight years. He had sectional winners in his second and fourth years here but only one of his four squads have reached the state tournament. Excluding the first year in which he worked with only inexperienced material for building a future winner, his teams have won fifty-one of sixty-nine games played. The success of his teams is due largely to his methods of coaching. Fundamentals are stressed emphatically, practice sessions are short and snappy, and every game is thoughtfully planned beforehand. He is truly a great man and a wonderful coach, who has been of some help to all boys. 59FOOTBALL I rout row -Vergane, Bonislawski, Bintz. Ritter (captain). Burau. Farroh, Jankowski. Weiler.

Hinchman. Krueger. Coach “Andy’’ Gill’s thirteenth Michigan City High School football team was probably the greatest defensive unit Northern Indiana has seen for sometime. With the entire line from the 1932 campaign and several veteran backfield men. the Red Imps emerged with five wins, one loss, and two ties. This record is second only to that of the 1904 team, which was the only Michigan City team ever to be a claimant for the state football championship. The fame of the Red Devil line spread throughout the state, and the newspaper service men gave them the name of “The Seven Stevedores and the backfield was later called ’The Four Musty Steers.’’ The “33’’ grid season was opened with a thriller against Morgan Park High School of Chicago, the 1932 Chicagoland Champions. Approximately 2.000 fans passed through the Gill Field turnstiles to watch these two teams play their first game. Movinski and the “Seven Stevedores ’, with their brilliant playing, gave the Imp fans an inkling of what to expect in 60future games. Twice the Michigan City goal line was threatened, but the Devils became as one man and refused to give in. Early in the first quarter Movinski slid off right tackle, cut back across his field, and ran 62 yards to a touchdown, but the ball was called back to the I 6 yard line because of clipping by one of the Imps. A few plays later Movinski slipped over the goal line on a reverse and then kicked the extra point. These proved to be the only points of the game and gave the Gillmen their first victory of the year. The next Saturday the Imps traveled to Goshen for their first conference engagement, with the Goshen Redskins offering the opposition. Goshen ran the ends, and the Gillmen ploughed the line. The latter team’s system proved to be the more effective, and in the last quarter, Blanford, who substituted for LaRocca, slid over tackle for the lone touchdown of the encounter and a 6-0 victory for the Harborites. Vergane’s line plunging and Blanford’s broken field running were features of the game. Blanford was the leading ground gainer of the Devils for 1933 and tied with Shipley Farroh for the scoring lead. After a two weeks’ rest the Red Devils entertained South Bend Central on Gill Field, and one of the best no-score high school games ever seen in the N. 1. H. S. C. was the result. Probably the two largest high school teams in 61FOOTBALL ihc slate pushed and struggled against each other for an hour, but to no avail. The odds were against Michigan City, but this scoreless tie was considered by many a moral victory. Central later won the conference title by defeating Whiting in the playoff and was the choice of the north for the mythical state championship. The outstanding features of the game were Vcrgane’s punting and the synchronization of the Central team. King-Kong farroh came into prominence on October 23 with his battering drives against the South Bend Riley line drives which resulted in twelve points and a victory for the Red Devils. Michigan City’s running attack began to function in a promising manner, and the “Seven Stevedores” continued their devastating work. But Michigan City did not hold the limelight alone. Jack Gibboney of the Riley team showed the Red Devils what one fighting lad could do. But with Blanford and Farroh running the ball, and Vergane kicking out of dangerous spots, the Red Devils walked off the school field with another victory. This was the fourth game for the Imps, and their goal line had not been crossed! The first Parents Day was held on October 30. with our ancient rival l.aporte providing the entertainment. Late in the third quarter. Farroh broke away for a twenty-five yard run that placed the ball over the goal line and gave another 6-0 victory to the Red Devils. This win placed the Red Devils in first position in the Eastern Division of the conference. During the half-time intermission, the newly uniformed Laporte High School band and the “Stunning Sixty" performed for the crowd. And still our goal line was uncrossed! A blocked punt, which was recovered over the goal line, gave the Mishawaka Maroons six points and defeated the Red Devils for the first and only time on the 1933 season. A pass, which netted the Maroons sixty-nine yards and placed the ball on the one-yard line, started the action. Penalties put the ball back farther, until the Red Devils gained it on downs. A punt was called, and the first pass from center was fumbled. Vergane stepped back again to punt, with his feet on the goal line. When the ball was centered. Boulanger of Mishawaka, an all-conference guard, sifted through the line and blocked the kick, while Kroncwitter. his team-mate, fell on the ball. Fumbles by the Imps marred their usual game. Conference and state championships were now just vague dreams, but one defeat wasn’t going to stop those boys from fighting. rhe last conference game of the year for the Red Devils, played at Elkhart, ended in a 12-12 tie. The game was scheduled to be a Friday night session under the flood lights, but ten inc hes of snow was brushed away for the game the next afternoon. Line plunging and end runs were used to advantage by both teams. Blanford and Vergane did most of the ball-carrying for the Imps. One of Blanford’s famous off-tackle cutbacks resulted in a touchdown, after a very excellent exhibition of broken field running for a distance of 24 yards. Shipley Farroh. who was sent back to the line, accounted for the other touchdown with the whole Michigan City team as his interference. This game brought forth many new players for the Imps. One of these was Kenny Burklow. whose blocking and tackling was superb, but as usual, a good man is not discovered until it is almost too late. The final game of the season was played at home, and the Michigan City fans were greatly impressed by the Red Devils power in downing St. Joe. 20-0. This was probably the Red Devils best played game of the year, especially in the offensive department. All but two of the eleven starters were seniors, and they showed the fans and the coach, as they ploughed down the field, that they were still willing to fight for their school. The Red Devils crossed St. Joe’s goal line five times, two touchdowns being called back, and had the ball on the one foot line when the gun ended the first half. Blanford scored twice; Vergane. once for Michigan City’s points. Two of the Red Devils were selected for all-conference honors in a poll which included all coaches and officials in the conference. Felix Jankowski and Gerald Weiler were the successful and fortunate boys. They were selected by unanimous vote, a fact which was quite an honor, as only one other player in the conference was unanimously selected for the team. Jankowski was also selected on the mythical all-state second team and won a “most valuable player” and popularity contest, sponsored by The News and The Lake Theatre. Letters were presented to Vergane, Weiler. Captain Ritter. Jankowski. Bintz. Movinski. Farroh. Burau. Isenbletter. Blanford. Darmon. LaRocca. Steele. Burklow. Bonislawski. and Oszust. Of this group of lettermen. eight are returning for the 1934 campaign: Vergane. who is captain-elect for 1934. Weiler. Bintz. Movinski. Burau. Bonislawski. Oszust. and Steele. Ten seniors graduate from the ranks of high school athletes. Included in this list arc Captain "Butch" Ritter, Russ Peus. Kenny Burklow, Felix Jankowski. Alfred Stevenson, Virg Isenbletter. Pete LaRocca. Wally Darmon. Jim Blanford, and Ship Farroh. r 2BASKETBALL A completely bewildered Red Devil basketball team ended its season at Boucher Gym in Valparaiso in the regional tournament play. After winning nine straight games at the end of the season, the team entered the regional as one of the favorites, but was eliminated by a Valpo quintet that wouldn’t be beaten. This was the third time in five years that a Viking team had defeated a vastly superior team in the first round. The Red Devils had previously finished in second place in the Eastern Division of the N. 1. H. S. C. and had decisively beaten Froebel, who had finished in runner-up position in the Western Division. Five wins and two losses were the result in conference tilts. For the first time in the history of Michigan City High School, twenty seasonal games were scheduled and played. Of these, the Imps won I 4 and lost 6. In tournament play, the Red Devils won 4 and lost 1, bringing the final total up to 18 games won and 7 lost. Consecutive losses were never encountered at any time in the season. Four teams representing Central and Southern Indiana basketball engaged the Red Devils, and three times the Imps were on the long end of the score. The Red Devils proved that one of the "impossibles’’ was a fallacy when they decisively defeated the Laporte Slicers three times in one season. The team was probably the greatest offensive unit that Michigan City has ever boasted. In the twenty seasonal games the Imps scored 546 points to their opponents’ 403 points. They made 195 baskets and 156 free throws to the opposition’s I 32 two-pointers and I 39 free tosses. The average for a game was approximately 10 baskets and 8 free throws to 7 baskets and 7 free throws by the opponents. For the season Ed Susnis and Bill Vergane led the team in scoring. Coach Loren Ellis, instead of meeting a “breather" in the season opener, scheduled Horace Mann of Gary to come to the Barn to furnish the fans with some real basketball entertainment. The Horsemen completely over-wheimed (he Imps by a 28 to 12 score, and in so doing, gathered the largest number of baskets in a single game that the Red Devils permitted all year. On Wednesday preceding the Thanksgiving vacation, the Imps again played host. This time the Brook Purple Aces came to Michigan City and left on the small end of a 41-13 score. Brook possessed a well developed zone defense and a fast breaking offense, but the Red Devils gathered 20 baskets and held the Aces down to two two-pointers. The first game in December found the Red Devils matched on the Barn floor with Lindbloom of Chicago. Lindbloom was a highly touted team, but the Red Devils turned on the power and won the game, 23 to 16. The next night the Imps traveled to East Chicago, where they met the Washington Senators. The Red Devils were defeated, 24-1 1, being able to count only two field goals during the playing time. The first conference game for the Red Devils was played with Elkhart. The Red Imps romped over the Barn floor to a 45-12 victory. In this game 18 field goals were caged in contrast to the two which had been earned the week before. The annual pre-Christmas vacation joust with Laporte was held in the Barn and gave the Red Imps the first of their three victories over the Slicer outfit. The game was fast and rough, but the Imps downed their rivals, 32-20. The second annual down-state trip of the Icemen resulted in a win and a 63BASKET BALL loss. The first night found them a completely bewildered and unorganized team against Linton. Scoring only one | oint in the first half, to their opponents seven, they rallied in the second half, but could bring the score no closer that 13-11 in favor of the Linton "Miners." The next night the Imps played in the marvelous Sullivan gym. After a very thrilling and rough encounter, the Red Devils won in the last two minutes by a 21-17 score. There is still one more jinx that Coach Ellis has to break—that of defeating a Goshen basketball team, for the Goshen Redskins this year again defeated the Imps, knocking the chance for a conference championship somewhere out into thin air. Two of the Red Devils were sick and were left behind, but Goshen took no pity on the rest of the boys and emerged a 26-19 winner. This was the first game of the new year. The next night the Imps stayed at home and engaged the Whiting Oilers. Changing their style to a fast-passing delayed game, the Red Devils decisively defeated the Oilers, 29-20. The Imps allowed the opposition only three baskets, but the Whiting center made one basket and twelve free tosses out of twelve tries, to keep his team in the running. On the following Friday, the Hammond Tech Tigers came to the Barn to attempt to outscorc the Imps. Every previous Hammond Tech-Michigan City basketball game had been decided by no more than two points, and this game was no exception, the Red Devils nosing the Tigers out, 23-21. rhe next playing night found the Red Devils engaging Nappanee. the Eastern Division champs, in their new civic auditorium. Unlike history, the small Nappanee men defeated the so-called Michigan City "Giants." 21-15. Nappanee was the smallest team in the conference, and Michigan City the largest. In a rough and tumble game at South Bend Central on the following Friday the Imps again emerged the winner by a 16-11 count. February started off with a double week-end. The first victory was like sweet nectar, as the Imps again trounced the Laporte Slicers by a score of 31 -24. The 34-30 loss to Lew Wallace the following night might be blamed on the Laporte game, which had tired the boys out quite a bit. but the lads gave no excuses and did their best. The second of the three double week-ends was started with the Imps’ defeating Mishawaka on the Barn floor by a 45-12 score and ended with SUSNIS FAUSCH VERGANE HIRSCHMANN f 4 CIOLEKSQUAD the team’s traveling on the next ni« ht to Valpo where they defeated the Vikings. 23 12. ITie Mishawaka win placed the Red Devils in second place in the conference standings. The last of the twin-bill week-ends resulted in two more victories for the Imps. The first win against Riley of South Bend, with a score of 48-38. was also the fifth conference victory. On the following night the Barn was again the scene of some excellent basketball as the Red Devils downed the Alexandria Tigers. 35-20. The Alexandria game was supposed to have closed the season, but as the Red Devils appeared to have just hit their stride. Coach Ellis scheduled a game with Froebel of Gary to keep the team in shape. Frocbel was runner-up in the Western Division, and the Imps held the same position in the Eastern section, so it might be called a game for third position in the conference. The Imps lacked four of their first ten players because of the twenty game rule, but the remaining six rolled on to a 36-12 victory. On March 2-3 the Red Devils won the second sectional title for Michigan City in three years. The first game gave the Imps an easy 43-16 win over Clinton Township. Hie next morning the Red Devils again turned on the steam and walked over Union Mills, 38-14. This victory placed Laporte and Michigan City in the semi-final afternoon game. A very nervous Michigan City team met a bunch of Slicers, who had everything to win and nothing to lose because they were the underdogs after the two previous defeats. The first half was a very poor exhibition of basketball and was marred by fouls. But in the remaining time, the Imps showed their ability and glided on to a 31-14 victory. Wanatah opposed the Red Devils in the evening, but were no match for the jubilant, rampaging Imps and was subdued, 55-16. The Red Devils were now one of the remaining 64 teams in the state eliminations. March 10 found them at Valparaiso for the regional tournament play, along with Hammond High, Morocco, and Valparaiso. The Valparaiso game was just “one of those things,” and the Red Devils were defeated by a one handed hook shot with approximately ten seconds of playing time remaining in the game. This shot brought a 26-24 victory to the previously defeated Vikings. It may be a worn-out cry. but everybody can say “Wait until BONISLAWSKI HAUGHEY FLOTOW BURAU 65 FOX1‘irst row -Haughey. Burau.

Gene Ciolek, and Jim Haughey. Everyone with the exception of Ciolek is a letterman. Bonislawski was chosen captain for the 1934 1935 season. Other boys who served on the Pink Imps and have chances of securing one of the four available positions left on the first ten are Johnny Erickson, Ted Oszust. Joe Dressel, Harvey Bintz. Sonny Weiler. Russ Gilmore. Val Burklow. Ralph Bowman, and Marion Graw. Junior High will also furnish a goodly portion of the Pink Imps’ team and possibly some first stringers. A silver loving cup donated by N. J. Riebe for basketball sportsmanship was won by Cliff Burau. This cup is in its first year of existence. Each year the winner’s name is to be inscribed upon the cup. which is to be placed in the high school trophy case. The award is based upon six points: sound scholastic standing, earnest effort, attitude toward the game, team work, aggressiveness, and mental attitude. A committee composed of Coach Loren E. Ellis. Dr. Daniel G. Bcrnoske. and Principal M. L. Knapp made the selection. A gold basketball was presented to John Hirschmann for making the largest percentage of free throws of any man on the varsity squad. Johnny Erickson received the silver basketball for the highest average of free throws on the second team. These awards were instituted by Coaches Ellis and Maxey in an attempt to break the free throw jinx that has seemed to dog Red Devil teams of the last two years. Hirschmann made .750 per cent of his free throws, and Erickson made .625 per cent. On the varsity John Flotow was second with .666, and Willie Vergane, third with .604. Gene Ciolek was second on the Pink Imps team with .517. The team average was .558. 6667GOLF With only one veteran back from last year, and faced with the problem of building a team from a group of willing but unproved golfers. Coach A. J. Parsons entered a rather tough golf season. In early spring practices, the boys appeared to be the nucleus of another good golf club, even though they lacked the polish and finesse of the 1931 and 1932 teams, who brought conference championships to Michigan City. With these records and that of the last year’s entry, which finished in the runner-up position in the N. I. H. S. C.. to shoot at. the golfers felt a sense of responsibility in continuing the former high records. Captain Albert Krueger was the only returning regular and so fell heir to the number one position. Bob Peters, who is a freshman, paced Krueger fairly well and gained the number two position. George Stern and Norbert Pollnow had a good battle for the number three position, and Stern emerged the victor for the first meet with Laporte. Movinski cinched the number four position for the first match. Both Movinski and Pollnow had played in a few matches last year but had not been regulars. Movinski s game was much better than in the preceding year, but Pollnow. who had some trouble playing his best games in match play, still had to break this complex. I be. Red Imps gained their first conference victory against Laporte by the score of 7 £ to 4, i . Captain ‘Mose’’ Krueger gained V2 point; Bob Peters. 3 points; George Stern. 2 points; and Stanley Movinski. 2 points. Ineligibility hit the golfing ranks just before the second meet of the year and forced a shakcup in the personnel of the team. Against Mishawaka the Imps were able to run up a 71 2-4, score for the second victory and also to place themselves a notch higher in conference standings. Krueger and Movinski. number one and two men. respectively, scored two points apiece. Ralph Bohlim obtained 2 4 points, and Norbert Pollnow got one. Lhc Riley Wildcats handed the Imps their first defeat of the year at the Pottawattomic Country Club Course by a score of 9V% to 2 2. Captain "Mose Krueger took two points, and Movinski gained V2 point. Stern and Bohlim completed the Michigan City team. Lhe last scheduled match was with Central of South Bend; the score was tied at 6-6. Riley of South Bend, to all appearances, seemed to be the team that w'ould give the Red Devils the most trouble. Riley won the conference championship last year and thereby gained one leg on the Herald and Lxaminer cup. A win this year would give the Imps permanent possession of the trophy by virtue of their victories in 1931 and 32. The Pottawattomic Country Club with its rolling fairways was again the Imps home course. The boys who tried out for the team were: Albert Krueger. Bob Peters, Stanley Movinski. Ralph Bohlim. George Sterne. John Gralik. George Bohlim. Norb?rl Pollnow. John Erickson. Norman Ahlgrim, and Pete Jorewicz. WRESTLING For the second consecutive year Michigan City was without a representative mat team. Wrestling instruction was given by Coach Andy Gill to all those who desired it. but no meets were scheduled, and none of the boys was sent to the conference or stale meets. But even this fact didn’t stop the boys from wrestling. Under the sponsorship and control of the Boosters’ Club, an intramural wrestling meet was held, and as a result of this meet, eight boys were crowned, in their respective weights, wrestling champions of the school. The champions and their wrestling weights were: 100 pound class. Debrce; 112 pound class, Fleming; 125 pound class. Breitzka; 135 pound class. Huryn; 145 pound class. K. Burklow; 155 pound class. V. Burklow; 165 pound class. LaRocca ; heavy weight. Jankowski. Other boys who participated in wrestling were: Mickcleck. Stevenson. Bohlim. Baines, Soloff, Lusk. Pfefferle. May, Cochran. Roames, Estes. Dieckelman, Tiebcrt. and Farroh. 68TRACK Primarily building the underclassmen into track men for next season. Coach Andy Gill succeeded in forming one of the best track teams to represent Michigan City in years. Not much remained of the 1933 squad, but those who were left proved to be consistent point-getters. In the annual dual meet with Laporte. the Imps came out on the long end of a 66-61 score. Krueger. Adams. Haughey. Farroh. and Susnis took first places for Michigan City. The Red Devils were hosts the next week to Laporte and Mishawaka for the annual triangular meet. Mishawaka .illected 74V points, the Imps got 301, . and Laporte. 17Individual scorers for Michigan City were Krueger. Burklow. Susnis. Farroh. Vergane. Bonislawski, Haughey. and Dressel. Competing against five other teams in the Laporte invitational meet, the Red Devils managed to place third. The last event of the day. the half-mile relay, gave Fort Wayne a two-thirds of a point margin over the Devils. Mishawaka again walked away from the field, scoring 94 points. The same group shared the scoring. In the annual quadrangular meet Elkhart scored 46‘z points, and the Imps gained 45. Laporte and Goshen followed with 42 and 9 Ms. respectively. Michigan City trackstcrs who took first places were Krueger (2), Farroh, and Susnis (2). Other scorers were Adams. Burklow. Marshke. Vergane. and Blanford. The Red Devils did not fare so well in the conference meet, placing tenth in a field of fourteen and being able to amass only I I points. Farroh again took a first place in his favorite event. Susnis got a fourth in the broad jump, and Marshke ran fifth in the mile. Shipley Farroh took the sectional shot-put event and in so doing established a new sectional and field record, collecting five of Michigan City’s six points. Susnis got a third in the broad jump to score the other point. 69GIRLS’ SPORTS FRANCES SEBESTA Director of Girls’ Physical Education lire girls’ sjrorts season opened last September with the election of officers for the ruling organization, the Girls Athletic Association. Geraldine Bicgc was elected president; Ruth Meyer, vice-president; Barbara Angriclc. secretary, and Helen Bell, treasurer. One of the first official acts of the organization for the year was the revision of the point system, under which girls work for emblems and sweaters. learns in hockey and soccer were organized early in the year, and because of the prevailing warm weather, the tournaments continued until the middle of November. Geraldine Bicge’s soccer team came out victorious in that sport, while Katherine Johnson’s team was triumphant in hockey. With the closing of these sports, volleyball and basketball took their places. Because of the large number of teams entered in basketball, two tournaments were held. Joyce Will’s team won the first, while Margaret Wright s team won the second. In the volleyball competition Marian Dittman’s group came out victorious. As the cold weather waned, baseball, track, and tennis lured the girls outdoors, where rival teams tattled until the close of school. The outstanding social event of the girls’ sport world during the year was the annual G. A. A. Kids' party early in October. The theme of a Century of Progress was carried throughout the evening, and many clever displays were devised. On that night M. C. H. S. had its own Hall of Science, its Sky Ride, its Electrical Building, and even its own fan dancer in Ann Pruett. Helena Cornay received the award for the cleverest costume. On May 19 Play Day was held under the direction of Frances Scbesta. local girls’ physical education instructor. The members of the Girls’ Athletic Association of M. C. H. S. acted as hostesses. The girls of the following schools were invited to attend: Laporte. Hammond, Union Mills. Westville, Stillwell, Rolling Prairie. Emerson and Horace Mann and Froebel of Gary. Riley and Central of South Bend. Goshen] Roosevelt of East Chicago. Elkhart, and Mishawaka. I he morning was spent in registration, relays and group games, and in track and field events. After lunch the girls played baseball, volleyball, and tennis. Io bring an end to a perfect day, an informal party was held in the girls gymnasium, where dancing, refreshments, and a program were greatly enjoyed by the girls. At the close of the girls sports season an election for the outstanding girl athlete was held in a G. A. A. meeting. Qualifications which were considered were character, scholarship, leadership, sportsmanship. and outstanding athletic ability. Laura Wiese received the honored title of the “Outstanding Girl Athlete." 70SECY GA A VICE PRES. OUTSTANDING ATHLETE SOCCER TREASGAA PRES. G.

Pencils— notebooks piled high— Education made me dizzy And I sometimes wished that I Had wings, so that when tired From my toil, I might soar Upward to the great unknown Where work is known no more. This education business often Sorta’ got my goat. But the teachers wouldn't soften. 'Course I couldn't see the moat Which centered in the confines Of my eye; 1 only saw Professors and Professorins Laying down the law. I’ve begun to sec the daylight And enjoy this "awful work." If I could just turn back the years. I'd ask less time to shirk. Then, perhaps I'd learn to labor. And better spend my leisure. Instead of useless burden then. Perhaps—I’d find work, pleasure. Twas ever thus; 'twill ever be. We oft repent too late. And when we try to remedy, We’re face to face with fate. For there’s never lived the mortal Who could undo a thing once done. He’s either fought and lost the fight Or he has fought and won. —Doris Bengston 72FEATURESONiTRAVEL It has always been a mystery to me how people could be born, live, and die in one place without having the slightest desire or wish to break down the restraining walls of an ordinary everyday existence and see what makes the rest of the world go around. Like the average boy I am devoted to the motion picture and books of travel and could listen forever to distant travelers who bring back in verbal pictures the romance of far-off lands. At first these tales merely amused me; then they excited my interest, and now they have aroused in me the commonly known "wanderlust.” 1 have always admired Richard Haliburton, despite the fact that the practical person labels him crazy, because in day dreams 1 have always planned exactly the same kind of travels. 1 would not enjoy going in the lap of luxury, on silken covered steamer chairs or in full dress wear, but rather, to use an Americanism, to rough it. 1 would enjoy basking under the tropical sun in informal attire on the deck of a picturesque dirty tramp steamer riding the swells of an equatorial sea; 1 would enjoy dashing over the Argentine plains in the annual round-up on a spirited horse. I can vision myself wending my way down a narrow, teeming street in Shanghai or another city in the mysterious East; I can vision myself beneath the wavering palms of the South Sea isles. 1 would like to "mush" a sled over frozen wastes of the Arctic; I would like to lead a safari through the steaming jungles of the Congo. I can imagine a tramp among the pyramids in arid Egypt; I can imagine a tramp through the northern woods in the spring of the year. My curiosity will not be satisfied until 1 have been to the far corners of the earth and have examined it curios. Then I will be content with settling down and attempting to foster some worthwhile venture, using perhaps the background of my travels. Perhaps my life will be cut on an entirely different pattern; perhaps unforeseen events will cast me in another role, but day dreams and air castles are inexpensive and maybe some day they will form the basis for realities: so in the meantime I’ll go on building—building—building— —Elwin Greening 75Ode to Graduation Graduation—thou art the goal which we have striven (or Since we first enrolled as little freshmen shy. Vet—now that we have reached thee, blest attainment. We rather dread to leave old M. C. Hi. I or our high school has long been to us a refuge. And in the glorious prime of youth Has been to us a gleaming revelation. And to us a font of hope and truth. Wc ve loved the years which we've spent here together, Years which have brought to us both pain and joy— And we’ve stored away a score of sacred memories. Which the elements of time cannot destroy. When time comes to part, that time will soon be drawing. Tears take the place of words we try to tell. But w'c look ahead—the roseate future beckons. F.very heart and tongue cries out, ’‘Farewell, farewell! —Doris Bengston The Nymph’s Reply to the Shepherd Ihese joys that you have promised me Might make my heart beat fast. Were you some city slicker and I just a country lass. But I am not a farmer maid; In men I hold no trust. I’d be a fool to leave my home And share your ’’wanderlust.’ For when the wintry winds would blow So wildly from above And I’d be cold, and hungry too. Then here you’d come with love. So sing your song of pastures green Of days so bright and sunny. But come to me w-hen you can say That you are earning money. In spite of all these faults, 1 find— As in some story book— I might have gladly been your love If you could only cook. —Fay Felske 76FRENCH ART YELL LEADERS LATINOn Being Plump Plumpness in a girl seems to present many unfair disadvantages. The young lady in question meets her first great problem when she is labelled “fat’ by her fellow students who belong to the class closely associated with bean poles and ramrods. She is accused of breaking innumerable scales, although any intelligent mortal would realize that overweight people bear a grudge against these weighing machines. The somewhat heavy miss cannot adopt any bird-like movements that arc so appealing to the masculine element in our population. Nor can she acquire that willowy grace which characterizes her slimmer sisters, who look as if grape nuts had been entirely omitted from their menu. With her buxom appearance, this damsel cannot inspire in a member of the male sex that protecting or masterful air which he delights in assuming. Under no circumstances could she swoon becomingly into a gentleman's arms without disastrous results. She must avoid bright colors, loud dress patterns, and ruffles, although she is perfectly aware that her dimensions are not decreased by these precautions. She is compared unto a sack of meal or a padded mattress, but do we pity her? How can we. when a person like Mae West has taught the American populace the advantages of plumpness? —Fay Felske On the Opposite Sex Ever since the days of Eve, women have always been a puzzle to mankind, but they have never been so puzzling as they are today. Women are no longer the helpless, shy, bashful creatures that they were in the days of yore; on the contrary everyday they are becoming more masculine than the males. They are very able to fend for themselves, and it seems to be a matter of pride with them to be wholly independent. They smoke, fly across oceans, wear men’s clothes, gamble, and break endurance records. The men of today resent this taking away of these traits which were meant to distinguish between them and the fairer sex. but it doesn’t seem to do them any good. If the women continue to carry on as they are. there will then be some strength in the rumor that the men will take the women's place in the home. Personally I think that all women are highly ambitious. There is no doubt in my mind that they will attempt to take over the business interests of the men, since the men made such a mess of things in 1929. But if the women ever do try such a thing, they will meet with a greater opposition than they ever expect. The men will be like a cornered animal fighting for its life, only they will be fighting for the last vestige of manhood that is left to them. Man will never submit to such an outrage. He will find himself again and rise up against that oppression that has held him down for the last decade. It will be the woman who pays, but contrary to all former customs, she will not be using the man’s money. 1 —James Blanford 78MAJOR DOMO ........ 8 5 3 2 1 MICHIGAN CITY VISITORS 00 oa SPIRIT OF LAPORTE 79Laughing Laughing is one of young America’s pet pastimes, and although it doesn’t come in fifty-seven varieties, there are a great many types of laughing. I would divide laughing into four main classes: the laugh of real enjoyment ; the “put on” laugh ; the laugh of the attention puller; and the school girl giggle. Everyone enjoys the laugh of a person who is really amused. This laugh is deep and hearty; it makes one feel as if someone, at least, really can “take a joke, and appreciate it. It seems to lighten and brighten the whole day and so is especially appreciated at times of deep depression or on dark and gloomy days. In contrast to the hearty laugh, we have the ’’put on" laugh. This laugh usually originates with the wet blanket type of person, the person who can’t appreciate a joke, but feels honor bound to make an attempt at laughing so the jokster won’t feel as though his humor wasn't wanted. This type of laugh is very weak and has the effect of bringing depression on anyone who may be in the company with the wet blanket who was responsible for it. A third type of laughter is that manufactured by the “attention-puller.” the go-getter who wants to make himself known as being among those present. The “attention-puller’s” manufactured laugh is either very high and shrill or very loud and rasping. Lhc last type of laughter to be considered is the well-known school girl giggle. The origin of the name of this type has always been a puzzle to me. In my experiences I have found that the “he-man” uses this type just as often as the members of the weaker sex. The characteristics of the school girl giggle closely resemble those of the attention puller’s laugh. The same high, shrill notes, probably even more accentuated, characterize this giggle. However, it is not used in the same manner. It is usually the expression of mirth on the part of the person who has not yet forgotten his childhood days. You. my readers, have probably met every type of laugh herein mentioned, so I feel I need go no further with my exposition. Classify the laughs you hear every day and see how nearly the type of laugh and the type of person match. Always remember—it is genuine laughter that keeps the world turning. —Helen F. Crosby Change How different my favorite haunt of last summer looks now! The leafy maple tree that on lazy, hot days would shelter me—and a book—and a pillow—and a sandwich—is now a barren skeleton, creaking in the north wind. The mossy grass beneath is now a gray, hard surface, covered with swirling snow drifts. Of the many birds that chattered gaily in the sunshine only a few remain to hop around, half frozen, looking for a stray crumb to nourish their shivering bodies. The sky, once peacefully and lazily blue, is now a gray, troubled blanket, covering a barren remembrance of a summer’s splendor. —Richard Kunkel 80Pair O’ Dice Lost "Somewhere the band is playing; laughter on the air is tossed. But there is no joy in Tahoo; the pair o’ dice is lost. The solemn dirge floated out on the light tropical breezes. Everyone joined in the song, for this was the worst casualty to strike the group since it had left Michigan City on its extended trip through the tropics to prepare the 1934 Elstonian. The jaunt had been planned as a short vacation tour. It was an innovation, for no other staff had gone to the tropics to publish the book; but now. was this to end in disaster? It was a disaster. Ever since the boat had left port, the raging sport had been bunco. But two of the implements commonly used in African golf had been misplaced or lost; so now the group, deprived of its noonday diversion, sat glum and sorrowful. The dice must be found if the book was to be a success. So Business Manager Garrettson and Editor Greening had decided that the only thing left to do was to conduct a search for the missing articles. With the dirge on their lips, the members of the party gathered together and prepared to set out on the hunt. The song died out as the people, leaving their working materials scattered about, disappeared into the dense tropical foliage. Two pairs of eyes watched with interest as the procession moved out of sight. Then a cry rang out among the branches of the palms as the two pairs became four, the four became eight. Twenty-two monkeys clambered down from the trees and scrambled into the clearing. The leader, weary from work, climbed slowly up the nearest tree and at once fell asleep. His left-handed right-hand man followed, palm leaf in hand, and squatted on the branch beside him, waving the foliage and creating a soothing artificial breeze. In all solemnity the artist of the group picked up the can of car factory paint and began to daub paint on the canvas in an indifferent manner. Another of the monkeys became interested in the camera and at once proceeded to snap a picture of the group. Not satisfied with merely a camera study, the fellow of the party who was always thinking up features and innovations sat down to sketch the group. Two of the monkeys, finding the checker board very interesting, became engrossed in a stirring game, while another typed an article on the affair for the local Tahoo Monkey Bizness. The two clowns of the group at once set to work at their favorite pastimes, shooting beans and dropping banana peels on the heads of the others. Still another monkey, finding nothing of interest, looked on indifferently. The remainder of the group, also bored with the proceedings, went on practicing for the Tahoo Follies of 1934. The crooner of the party made life miserable for the rest of the monkeys by singing, while the ticket seller was fast making existence unbearable with his voluminous sales talks. No follies would be complete without a chorus, and this was no exception. There on the sand were the twelve girls of the chorus, practicing the Charleston Carioca. The noise of the returning staff sent the monkeys scurrying to the trees. Peering timidly from behind the screen of palm trees, the intruders watched the triumphant party return from the hunt. Sighing resignedly and reflecting happil ' cn the interesting interlude, the monkeys turned and disappeared into their jungle haunts. The song of the successful searching party rang out through the thickets, finally fading out as the staff once more resumed work. "Somewhere the hand is playing; the children gather ’round. And there’s a lot of joy in Tahoo; for the pair o’ dice is found. 828384IN APPRECIATION TO OUR PATRONS AND ADVERTISERS THE CLASS OF '34 WISHES TO THANK THOSE WHO HAVE MADE THE PUBLICATION OF THIS BOOK POSSIBLE OUR PATRONS DR.
