ELSTON HIGH SCHOOL, MICI-Page Three PENNY, THE PENGUIN OSCAR, THE SEA LION Talk over the situation at Michigan City high school and choose the 1936 Elstonian in which to portray the student life and activities, for the year 1935-36.Page Four INTRODUCTION "Awk! Awk! Students, here we come, Oscar and I, to see what all this gossip is about. We heard that we are supposed to be the theme of this book and just got here in time to get under the cover. Have you ever been a theme ? What is the theme supposed to do? We have never gone through such an experience, and before we do anything, we would like to have a staff member tell us what this is all about." "Oh hello. Penny and Oscar! You are just in time to hear why we chose you for the theme of our annual. You see it is like this, a staff member happened to mention Oscar, our late famous sea lion of Lake Michigan, and some one else jokingly suggested penguins, which he had recently seen in a magazine. Why not? There was our theme—Penny, the penguin, and Oscar, the sea lion! What a pair! But why penguins for our annual? Simply because those meaningless, and innocent looking creatures resemble mankind more than any other bird does. "Just imagine them as they strut about in their white waistcoats, black coats and trousers, black shoes, and, if your imagination will stretch a little, top hats. Then think of Couden, McKee, and Gilmore in the Junior Play last year or of Clemens and Wellnitz in their soup and fish outfits in the Senior Play this year. Now do you get the idea? If you want to know how penguins compare with humans as to character. I shall attempt to show you. Penguins are very inquisitive, just as some of our students are; they are also persistent and will not give up. As to the comparison of their actions with those of human beings, especially young boys and girls, the penguins are extremely initiatory. They have individual preferences; they are indolent and industrious; they possess trivial minds, and in some cases are conceited. Now who could not picture students like these penguins? Of course, we have them. Now don't you think that there is a connection? In penguin life there is the conceited dandy who thinks that his mere presence must bea delight to all beholders. Of course, his prototype exists also in humanity. Then there is the unhappy-looking creature fluffed out with drooping feathers who appears to do nothing at all but sit and consider how utterly wretched he feels and what little advantage there is in living. Doesn't this last example remind you of the seniors that received E’s, sitting in the assembly, brooding over their misfortune? "Now don’t you see why you students make us think of Penny and Oscar? Penguins resemble mankind to a T’ and also give a light, humorous subject which can be satirized and with which one may draw comparisons. "Because we needed a companion for you, Penny, we chose Oscar, the sea lion, one of your friends in your native country. Oscar has been very close to us during the past year. A refugee from a local zoo, he chose Michigan City's lake front as his home. Oscar romped about our lake front, evading all attempt by our Frank Buck Club to capture him and lived happily until someone without any sense of animal preservation shot and killed him. "As a staff member. I have attempted to show you in the preceding discussion why we chose you. Penny and Oscar, as our theme. If we have been successful in winning you over to see it as the staff does, we should like to have you take the students through our annual, showing them the high spots of the school and also telling them the history and great acts of the Class of 1936."

M. C. MURRAY, Superintendent "Say, Oscar, whose office is that over there? Let's walk over and peek in." "Why, Penny. I’m surprised at you; this is the superintendent’s office. Do you mean to say you never heard of the work of Mr. Murray? We can walk right in because it is early, and no one is here." "Say, Oscar, what do you say we hide and surprise Mr. Murray when he comes in? "A fine idea. Penny; these files will do the trick." "My! Oscar, look here—records of high school students as far back as the founding of this school, and look at all the records of the various public schools. Here comes Mr. Murray now. Let’s talk to him. Hello, Mr. Murray, could we—.’’ "You will have to get an appointment as I am busy just now." And so the daily routine of our superintendent’s office goes on. MR. M. L. KNAPP, Prineipal “Here, Penny, is the office of our principal, known to all of his friends as a handball enthusiast. After his work is finished, he hurries down to the "Y”—where he indulges in his favorite sport. You know, Penny, Mr. Knapp’s life is not all recreation; he is responsible for some one thousand students, and he watches over them as if they were his own. Possibly some of the boys and girls with whom we have already become acquainted have been called on the ’green carpet, but under his guardianship they have just completed the four happiest years of their lives. You know, Penny, principals in some schools have some enemies, but 1 believe that 1 can safely say that Mr. Knapp is admired by all the students of this school. "Come, Oscar, let’s go out in the hall, as classes are passing, and I should like to watch the students.I’agf Thirteen Mr. Henry Miller President Mr. D. M.

Well, the gray winged penguin laddies and lassies approached our igloo with the hope of conquering. However, their helplessness was apparent from the first, and they needed care for a long time. Being young, the penguins made many mistakes their first year. The youngsters had to copy other classes and form some sort of organization; consequently they drew feathers and chose Walter Herring, big boss; Russell Gilmore, second big shot: and George Mace, next in command. As they became oxford gray, their newness wore off — they were just another batch that had hatched from the neighboring igloo. They, themselves, tried to act as though they were experienced in their treatment of their new cousins. They threw a "Side Party —the lasses on one side and the lads on the other. Anthony Gondeck, Chester Beebe, and John Gay ruled the second year ice house bunch with winged hands. As the darlings attained their maturity in appearance—we could hardly say in action—they branched out into all fields. Their custom being playfulness, they entertained with the play "The Lion and the Mouse . Yvonne Morris and Russell Gilmore headed the cast. Shirley Rossmore was an author who saved her father's name and put blame where it was due. She and Jefferson Ryder fell in love and brought the play to a close with great success. The "Rock Hoppers’ Hop" was a gala affair—fish and penguin suey and such. Decorations were red and gold—the red of the setting sun and the gold of the rising sun. Several plays were witnessed and a penguin hop was enjoyed. Lester Anderson was the penny; Florence Keene, the half-penny; and George Sterne, the quarter-penny. Next we see them in their evening clothes—they are grownup, matured, discriminating. Anyway they became emperors, so they thought, over the entire ice house. Penny Anderson, Hoppy Dilworth, and Rocky Dunn did their best to rule the black tails well. As upper-ups, they presented another play. "The Youngest.” Lee Schneider played the title role of the picked-on youngest, and Yvonne Morris was the girl who tried to make him over, but found that too much meddling would result in failure. Deserving ones made Igloo Honor Society. Thespians, and Quill and Scroll. Some appeared in radio plays; othe.r headed clubs or won scholastic honors. Dollie Stanley was judged the best penguin we had—scholastically and according to activities. Some tried to compose this book, and finally they were entertained in a royal manner with a fine dinner-dance, the Prom—a way to get rid of them. Class Day came on May 22, the date of the Prom also. After much worry and practice, trying to make their Class Day the best, the seniors succeeded in their endeavor. The class decided to have baccalaureate services at Barker Hall on May 24. All of the seniors donned caps and gowns and attended. The Reverend Donald C. Ford gave the address. Graduation and the end of their gay, happy, carefree days in high school came on May 29. That. Penny and Oscar, is their life—take it or leave it—better leave it; they will probably be able to use it in the future.I’.'igr Twenty-nr vcn Carter Manny President Melvin Hubbard Vice-President James Krieger Secretary-Treasurer “Hot dogs! Hot dogs! Only five pennies for a hot dog! "Souvenirs! Souvenirs! Only ten pennies for a souvenir!" "Yes. Penny, that is the way this ambitious class of juniors used your name at basketball Junior Clans History and football games, but be not dismayed; they were not thinking of you—nickels and dimes were the subjects of their thoughts. Don t you suppose it took an enormous amount of money to stage a dinner-dance like this one? Remember the play you saw? O. you know— the one entitled Erstwhile Susan, in which Lucile Parkhouse and Carter Manny had the leading roles? Well, that was also given to help raise money for this farewell party." "Oscar, that’s all very interesting, but how about telling me something about the students and teachers in charge of this ambitious class.’ "Very well, the boy who is now speaking is Carter Manny, the president. At the speakers' table are also Melvin Hubbard, vice-president; James Krieger, secretary-treasurer; and Miss McConkey and Mr. Griffin, class sponsors. Now are you satisfied, my little penguin?" "Oscar, I’m sorry—I was so absorbed in gazing at the many, beautiful gowns, that 1 didn’t hear what you said."

This is the biggest thrill of my life," said Penny Penguin as she poised her pencil and hunted through her little green notebook for a clean page. "P-pardon me, sir; where could 1 find some one who could give me the lowdown on this party?" "Well, I guess 1 can," said the gallant gentleman, "I'm Robert Gilmore, ye old Sophomore Class president. What shall I tell you?" "Anything you can," said Madam Penguin. "Who's giving the party and for whom? Why do all of th ose boys stand over there along the wall and the girls over here?” "Wait a minute. One question at a time, please. This is the annual Freshman-Sophomore party of our high school.” With a sigh Penny gazed around the "barn". Finally she said, "I'm supposed to cover this party for the 'White Icicle," which is the school paper in my home town. I hope you don’t mind my asking you these personal questions." “Not at all,” replied Robert; "were only too glad to have our school activities publicized. Our class sponsors are right over there talking to those other teachers; the one is Miss Schwabenland and the other is 'Andy' Gill." "Thanks," said Penny as she surveyed what she had written. “This party will make history."

"1 haven’t a chance . . “Well, he told me that she told him ..." . . . and were they bewildered! 1 guess that all students are alike —curiosity will get the better of them, and Penny and Oscar were no exceptions. One fine day. January I 3, to be exact, excitement among the seniors ran riot. Poor freshmen. Penny and Oscar were frantic with curiosity. "Let’s ask someone, Oscar," Penny finally said. "Here comes Jim; he’ll know, since he’s a junior. Hi, Jim! Say, what’s all the excitement about?" "Honor Society is announced today, Oscar. Hello, Penny." “Hello, Jim. Just what is the Honor Society, Jim? It seems that’s all we’ve heard so far this year.” "That’s so; you are only freshmen. Well, I’ll tell you. Each year a faculty committee chooses a small group of seniors who, they think, are worthy of the honor of being members of the National Honor Society. Their service to the school, leadership, character, and scholarship during their four years in high school are taken into consideration. At the convocation today those chosen will be initiated into the society. Mr. A. J. Parsons is the sponsor."Page Forty-two Intermediate H i - Y "Let’s go into the Y Oscar, and see what all of the noise is about. Look at all of the boys and girls dressed up in funny looking clothes. What is this, anyway?" "Why, Penny, do you mean to tell me that you don't know that this is Halloween. Every year the Intermediate Hi-Y club assists the Senior Hi-Y in putting on the annual Halloween party.’" "Come, Oscar, let us see what the affair is like.'" "It is all right by me. Gee, Penny, but there is a mob trying to get in here; it must be very entertaining. Here we are finally inside the portals of the gym. Gee! isn t it spooky? There is a ghost; look out! Let's hurry downstairs; that’s where they say the fun begins. Look at the devil and the dead person beside him." "Boy, Oscar, don't you smell water? Let’s hurry. Oh. Boy. they have a catwalk right across the middle of the pool. My. 1 would like to get into that water. It seems ages since we have romped about in our natural environment. Let’s go on upstairs and see the movie. While we are waiting, you can tell me more abcut the Intermediate Hi-Y.’’ "Well. Penny, Mr. Neff is the sponsor, and Mr. Messner, the advisor.

"Has this year been a successful one for the Hi-Y, Oscar?- "Yes, Penny, with Lester Anderson, president, and his very able assistants. George Sterne, vice-president; Leo Sands, secretary-treasurer; and Robert Arnold, sergeant-at-arms, the year has been quite successful. Furthermore, with the newly elected officers in charge, the coming year holds great promises for the club. The officers at present are Carter Manny, president; James Krieger, vice-president; John Krueger, secretary-treasurer; and Robert Houser, sergeant-at-arms. Mr. George Irgang is faculty sponsor." "Does the club engage in many activities?" "Well, the activities are somewhat limited, but all of those that the club undertook were carried out with satisfaction. The Halloween Party was probably the most outstanding activity. On November 6, they gave a Father and Son banquet, with George Campbell and David Robel providing an interesting program. " "In order to raise money to send representatives to Camp Tecumseh, the officers" training camp, and the Older Boys" Conference, the club sponsored a debate and a movie. The debate, held on January 21, 1936, was between the University of Chicago and Northwestern University. The subject was socialized medicine. The movie was "The Story of Louis Pasteur." "Finally, a marble tournament, open to all grade school boys, was held on April 18 and 2 5 and on May 2.

Council and that we should print for every incoming freshman a sheet containing the purpose and the work of the Council. “I think Ima’s suggestion is an excellent one. Is there any discussion? Miss Engstrcm, have you anything to say on the subject ? “There are. I’m afraid, many freshmen, and perhaps there are some upper classmen, who do not know that the purpose of the Council is: ‘To promote better citizenship among the students, to maintain good order, and to promote the best cooperation possible between the faculty and the students.’ 1 think the plan suggested is an excellent one. “Just what would we want to print in this sheet? Are there any suggestions from the members?” “We might tell them about the various committees. We can print the fact that there are five standing committees, which give special attention to the various problems and activities in school and that the Committee on Committees appoints and exercises control over the other five committees. “It is now time for adjournment, but we shall reconsider this proposal at the next meeting. Is there a motion to adjourn? Peppy.” “1 move to adjourn.” “Is there a second to that motion?” “I second the motion." “The meeting is adjourned.

And as you whistled a tune so gay Or thought a thought so dark and gray You’ve heard a voice behind you wheeze. ‘Hey you. keep moving please ?” “Ha! Ha! Penny, that’s a good one. Have I ever had such an experience? Plenty of times! By the way. how would you like to be a hall patrolman?” “Well, 1 don’t know. Oscar; it’s a lot of responsibility. You see a hall patrolman must not show any partiality. He must be fair and square and passing in all subjects. Besides all of this, he must watch all of his friend penguins to see that they don’t loiter or chew gum or whistle or run—in other words, that they behave themselves as high school students should.” “Say. Penny, they really have a job. 1 hear that the chief this year is penguin Leo Sands.” “That’s right, Oscar, and Mr. George L. Irgang is supervisor. On each floor is an assistant, too—that is, an assistant head patrolman responsible for his respective floor. “How about our joining the ranks. Penny?

You nearly went ‘loco’ last time.’’ "Now you needn’t talk. Mr. Penny Penguin. Just the fact that you have a major part in the play, which entitles you to be a member of the National Thespians, is no reason why 1 should sit back and not become a member. 1 can't act, but I can be stage manager twice, work which will admit me into the Thespians, too. Happy and Peppy wrote a play which we produced, thus entitling them to membership, and you needn't think you’re leaving me out in the cold." “Oh, all right, all right. Oscar. You know Miss Goldie Shepherd is sponsor, and I’ll speak to her about it. I’ll even speak to Russell Gilmore, president; Charlotte Kinsey, vice-president; and Lucile Parkhouse, secretary, and see if they won’t all resign next year so that you may fill all three offices.’ "Oh, Penny, keep quiet for just one minute, please. By the way. where did you get all of your experience?" "Why from the Blackfriars. I wanted you to join, remember? It is a dramatic club organized by the Thespians. Miss Emily Davidson is its sponsor. The club meets twice a month, and we have programs and talks about the stage and dramatic work. Even the tryouts are fine experience, although there are many knees that knock while tryouts are held." "Well, Penny, guess I’ll join that club, too. It certainly sounds good.Page Forty-eight Junior Play Row 1. Ilu h h a r (I . Jasperson, Doming. Parkhouse, Manny, Kinsey, Swanson. Kahn. Row 2. Johnson.

Erstwhile Susan, and I’m supposed to give you a synopsis, so here it comes. “Barnabetta, come here and tend to the vittles." said Barnaby Dreary to his daughter. Barnaby was pretty good at ordering his family around till he up and got hitched to Juliet Miller. “Erstwhile Susan." After Juliet turned the Dreary household into a fashion plate and Barnabetta began to get a liking for young Judge Jordan, poor old Barnaby fell off the church roof and—well, they buried him. After Barnaby’s death the plot was ironed out so that everyone lived happily ever after, except poor Abel Butcher who lost Barnabetta, his childhood sweetheart, to Jordan. Oh-gee-gosh and a few more sissyfied exclamations! I’ve left out the names of the cast, chosen by Miss Shepherd. Well, mean old Barnaby Dreary was run off by Carter Manny, who, incidentally, did a fine job. Lucile Parkhouse, local girl makes good, was Juliet Miller, Erstwhile Susan. Charlotte Kinsey as the meek Barnabetta was so captivating that 1 had to hold Oscar in his seat. Hope Deming as Ramah Schwenkfelders. William Jasperson as Jacob her lover, and Melvin Hubbard in the shoes of Emanuel were all good. John Kahn, playing Abel Butcher, had the audience rolling in the aisles. And so, dear students, the Junior Play. Erstwhile Susan, was, as good plays must be. very entertaining—both as to content and acting.Page Forty Senior Play How 1. Hart. Koci kowski, Krueger. Morris, dale. Row 2. Harris, YVell-nitz. Keene. I)avi«l-son (coach). Clemens. Schneider. Since Penny wrote up the Junior Play, I'm supposed to recall The Youngest, given by the seniors and coached by Miss Davidson. Well, the actors that 1 liked best were a brown dog and a black cat. We animals have to stick together, you know. In the first part of the play Richard, the youngest, is abused by the family in general, especially by his older brothers, Oliver and Mark. The family wants him to go into the traditional pin business, but Richard wants to write. Muff, Dick's sister, invites a friend, Nancy, as house guest over the Fourth of July. Because Nancy likes to make people over, she tackles Richard. On the Fourth of July Richard finds that, through a technicality in his father's will, he is the owner of the pin factory and the family fortune. He turns he-man and moves his sister Augusta and her husband out of the house. Of course, the last scene implies that he marries Nancy. The cast was as follows: Richard Winslow. Lee Schneider; Nancy Blake, Yvonne Morris; Mark Winslow, Frank Wellnitz; Oliver Winslow, Maynard Clemens; Mrs. Winslow, Shirley Krueger; Muff Winslow, Barbara Gale (boy, that’s a mob of Winslows) ; Augusta Winslow Martin, Margaret Hart; Alan Martin, Arthur Harris; the maid, Kaleen Kocikowski; the brown dog, a brown dog; and the black cat, a black cat. After the play I bought Penny a soda—chocolate.Orchestra “Oscar, what is all this talk about medals and scholarships among the students in the orchestra?” “They just came back from Bloomington yesterday. Penny, and they brought more honors home with them! Maybe you think Mr. Myran isn’t proud! Betty Lichtenberg and Ethel Korn won scholarships to Indiana University. Kenneth Tor-torici, Daniel Chinske. Kenneth Timm, and Henry Paine won first place medals!” “Who are the officers of this talented group. Oscar?” “Betty Lichtenberg is president; Carl Hoelting. vice-president; Marjorie Ahlgrim. secretary; Florence Keene, manager; Mildred Burke, librarian; and Alvera Johnson, publicity chairman.” “Well, it certainly took money to send the whole orchestra to Bloomington. How did they raise sufficient funds?” “Penny, you can ask more questions—it’s a good thing I know all the answers! They gave a benefit movie — you remember—‘Midsummer Night’s Dream . They also gave a dance.” “Thank you, Oscar. I’m satisfied now—1 know all about the orchestra.” Upper left— Row 1. Briggs, Freese. Peterson, Maack. Helms. E. Hedstrom. Row 2. Mitchell. Bclkiewitz, K.

As Penny and Oscar strolled through the junior high building, they heard an awful racket coming from a distant room. They decided to find out what it was and headed in the direction of the sound. Through an open door they saw the Michigan City high school band, practicing for the LaPorte football game. Of course. Penny and Oscar attended that game, as it is always the big event of the year. Between halves Penny and Oscar enjoyed the band’s playing and forming of letters. Since the band played at all football and basketball games, the members were given a chance to see a football game from the grand stand when they witnessed the Riley-Central game. One day Penny said to Oscar, "Does the band do anything except play at football and basketball games?" "Certainly," came the reply from Oscar; "the band gave a concert at Emerson High school in January and attended the Hoosier Music Festival in April." After much discussion Penny and Oscar decided to attend the annual band concert at which they heard RhapsocHe Royale, a number being played for the first time outside New York State, where its author resides. Oscar attended one meeting of the band and saw Sheldon Cashbaugh. the president, presiding. During the meeting Oscar learned that Evah Mitchell was vice-president and that Victor Losiniecki was secretary.Page Fifty-two QIe e Club Row 1. Kennard, Swinchart. Wcidner, Houser, Eric son.

Penny, even if we can’t sing, the Glee Club is a swell opportunity for those who can. You know the girls meet on one Monday, and the boys on the next Monday, and then the mixed group meets on Wednesdays. “They must have a good time through their singing.” “Mr. H. E.

She immediately shoves her books into her locker, repairs her face, and rushes down stairs where Betty Lichtenberg, Janice Carstens, Guy Foreman. Gordon Jay, Sheldon Cash-baugh, Victor Losiniecki, Clement Zawacki, William Bickel, Marvin Arndt, Phyllis Berridge, and Wilbur Seifert—members of the mingler orchestra—are playing and singing with all their might and main, trying to drown out the noise that is made by shoes scraping on a glued floor. After carefully surveying the crowd, she sees that there aren’t any boys present. (Ha! Ha! I fooled you; you thought 1 was going to say that the boys were on one side and the girls on another.) The girls were dancing with each other or talking about the happenings of the day. And when girls talk, you know what it sounds like. My goodness, how time flies. Do you realize it’s the last dance? And what a dance! A medley of "Mood indigo," "I'm in the Mood for Love." and "Blue Moon . What a combination!

Oscie; why I’ve one hundred inches written already, and one is required to have only one hundred and fifty. “How about scholarship? You must be in the upper fourth of your class scholastically, you know.” “That’s not all, Oscar. Mr. Knapp, as well as our journalism teacher, must vouch for our work in general.” “But say, it certainly would be worth it—all the work and everything else, I mean.” “And how! Just think ofowning one of those swell pins, as well as belonging to a National Journalistic Honor Society! And you get a magazine for a year, too.

They were excellently coached by Miss Ollie Gardner.

"How about it, Oscar; would you like to try out next year, too?"age Fifty-six Girls’ League "Hey, Penny, you’re not supposed to be going in there. That’s Girls’ League meeting." "Say, what is this Girls’ League that takes my girl away from me?" "Well, if you'll let me talk long enough without interrupting me, I'll tell you. It’s a club to which all of the girls in high school may belong—no fees, no nothing, just a good time. Penguin Barbara Gale is secretary this year, Yvonne Morris is president. Pat Peat is vice-president, and Miss Munson is the faculty advisor." "Now 1 know what those scrapbooks and toys were for. Peppy also said that the club takes a hike at the end of the school year." Latin Club "And that, my dear Penny, constitutes a Latin Club." The Master Detective spoke with deliberation; deliberately he filled his pipe bowl and deliberately applied a match, and puffed contemplatively . . . "that," continued Detective Oscar, “is the club in which the bimillenium celebration of the birth of Horace . . . one of the greatest of the classical poets . . . furnished material for the programs. "The Latin Club of Isaac C. Elston Senior High School has no less than 40 members . . . each member is required to have had at least one semester of Latin. "The officers are: Jeanette Carlson, president; James Jones, vice-president; Grace Tonn, secretary-treasurer, and Mrs. Jane Russell, the sponsor. "And 1," Oscar tapped out his pipe . . .

I've never seen anything like it before—this lovely German 'Christmassy' atmosphere. "Oscar. 1 wonder what's in those queer packages under the tree. While we re waiting, tell me something about the club." "That’s a good idea; I’ll start by pointing out the officers to you. That lady sitting over there at the end of the table is Miss Munson, the sponsor; next to her is Elda Jordan, the president; the girl that is introducing the speaker is Ruth Lubke, the vice-president; and opposite Ruth over here by this table is Dorothy Miller, the secretary-treasurer. "You couldn’t be a member. Penny, because you haven't had over one semester of German. If you think this is fun, you should attend one of their May Day picnics."l age Fifty-seven Forum Club "Oscar, what is that awful noise coming from Mr. Parsons’ room? I should judge that they’re having quite a time. I can hear ’Daddy’ Parsons above them all, too." "Let’s listen and find out what's going on. Sure enough. Penny, this is Wednesday, the day for the Forum Club meeting. ‘Daddy’, the sponsor, is one of the most enthusiastic members." "That’s a heated discussion, all right. Tell me more about this club." "It's still in its infancy, having been organized only last fall. The club gives its members a broader knowledge of current, national, international, social, and economic problems. Their discussions are conducted by a chairman. Marjory Ohming is in the chair this year, and William Mahl is the vice-chairman." Lettermen’s Club “Let’s go out for track, Oscar." "What’s this? Peg-leg Penny wants to go out for track?" "Surely, Ossified Oscar; if we go out for track and get a letter, we can join the Lettermen's Club." ‘The Lettermen’s Club?" Surely; it doesn't hold regular meetings, but it is a mighty fin. club, although it is less well-known than some others." "Do you have to earn a letter?" "What do you want them to do? Give you one?" “Quit kidding." “Yep, you must have earned a letter in some sport before you can become a member." Boosters’ Club "Good morning, Oscar. Where’d you get the Red Devil emblem for your sweater?" "Oh, it's my Boosters’ Club emblem." "I didn't know that you belonged to the Boosters’ Club, Oscar. Its purpose is to promote athletics and to co-operate with the athletic department of the school, isn’t it?” "Yes, the basketball sponsor league is one of the activities of the club." "Who are the officers and the sponsors of the club?" "There have been two sets of officers this year. The first semester officers included Hassen Abraham, Raymond Eilers, Leroy Breitzka, and Lester Furness. The second semester the officers were Leroy Breitzka, Lester Furness, Hassen Abraham, and Wilbur Schlundt. The sponsor of the club is Mr. Sheldon Maxey."IV S1V3S 3 h1THEIR SALIENT PLAY AthleticsI’agc Sixty Coach Gill (left) Coach Ell is (right) ‘‘Boy, was that ever an interesting game." said Oscar. "The Red Devils surely showed a fighting spirit which really accounted for the victory. But who was that man cn the bench with his hat bashed in, whispering instructions to the players and watching every movement of the team on the field?" inquired Penny. "Why that was Coach Gill,” instructed Oscar, "who for fifteen years has been Michigan City's capable football mentor." "Why . . . but . . . ,' interrupted Penny, “1 saw him stuffing his pockets with grass during the exciting parts of the game." "Aw shut-up. Penny," blurted out Oscar; "you have no appreciation for a great coach who shows so much interest in his players and who is the main factor in giving the boys the fighting spirit which they displayed in today s game. "Oh, he’s just the football coach," complained Penny. "No," Oscar said angrily, "plus the task of producing a winning football team for Michigan City. ‘Andy also has charge of the boys' physical training department." "Who takes care of the basketball activities in Michigan City?” asked Oscar as he and Penny strolled down the corridors. "Why, here he comes now." said Penny. "Oh. do you mean that well-built gentleman with the black mustache?" asked Oscar. "1 saw him yesterday priding himself on that insignificant growth of hair. Now 1 could give him a couple of pointers in growing whiskers," boasted Oscar. "Oh, shush. Oscar; you have the wrong conception of the man. The person you are referring to is none other than Coach Loren Ellis, who for five years has made basketball history at Michigan City. He has sent two Red Devil machines to the state finals and has taken several sectional victories."Page Sixty-one Football Autumn, the appearance of raccoon coats, and Jack Frost laid way for the king of sports—football. At Michigan City Oscar and Penny, wild with delight, watched preparations for the annual sport with much joy and anticipation and were on hand to lend their aid. With the loss of such veterans as Vergane, Burau, Weiler, and Bintz, Coach "Andy” Gill started an almost impossible task of bringing to Michigan City High another fine team, as he has done for the past fifteen years. When the training season began, the untried, unheralded boys came out in drove, but "Andy' found only a few who could fill the shoes of those stalwart warriors of last season. After weeks of practice the eager, determined Red Devils faced Mt. Carmel of Chicago, their first opponent on the schedule. The Chicagoans brought a bunch of husky footballers, but the Red Devils fought gamely and held Mt. Carmel to a 6-6 tie. The Imps showed a fighting spirit in the first half to score their first touchdown of the year, but in the third quarter their defense lagged when the Windy City eleven unleashed a powerful running attack which resulted in a touchdown, tying the score. More determined than ever, the Imps went to Goshen to be entertained by the hospitable Redskins. The entertainment was, however, at the expense of Michigan City. The Devils dropped their first conference game, 14-7. The Imps failed to stop the Redskins' speedy quarterback, who stole the show with his spectacular runs, one of which resulted in a touchdown. The Red Devils showed some defensive strength when they held the Redskins to two touchdowns. The Imps did manage to score one touchdown off their traditional "jinx” through the efforts of Michigan City's plunging fullback, "Fuzzy” Stevenson. With no victory yet intact, the Devils called on Oscar for help, and with the sly, cunning, deceptive information from him the Imps invaded the lair of the Hammond Tech Tigers. Alas, the power they had received was insufficient, and they were forced to share the game with Tech, 6-6. The Tigers took a 6-0 lead in the second quarter and kept it until late in the fourth period. In the fourth quarter, Stevenson tore Hammond's line wide open with his mighty plunges, and after a number of thrusts he went over for the tying touchdown. Again in the final quarter the Imps threatened, but the game ended before they were able to score.fagc Sixty-two Football With still no victory, the hungry Bears of South Bend Central loomed on the horizon and invaded the realm of the Red Devils. The Devils had that extra something that day and out-played a favored South Bend Central eleven, displaying excellent teamwork. This was the Imps' first and only conference victory of the season. Michigan City beat a stubborn Bruin eleven, I 3-7. It took a brilliant 85 yard run by Keen to provide the winning margin. It was the Imps' first victory in five years over the Grizzly of Central. Jubilant with their first victory, the Imps plotted to give the sister school of Central the same treatment. The Riley Wildcats, one of the strongest teams in the conference, clawed out a scoreless tie with the invaders. Michigan City threatened seriously in the third quarter, but the Imps were stopped on the Riley five yard line. In the second quarter the Imps showed a tight defense by stopping the Wildcats on the two yard line when two thrusts at the Imps' line failed. The biggest disappointment came when the LaPorte Slicers beat the Imps. 6-0. Outplaying the favored Red Devils in one of the biggest upsets of the year, the Slicers turned in their best performance of the season. It was the first beating the Imps have taken from LaPorte in a decade of football. A perfectly executed pass from Broome to Troy in the second quarter spelled defeat for the Imps. Tire following week the Red Devils invaded the den of the Mishawaka Cavemen and were given their worst trouncing of Row 1. Stevenson, Hcnnard, San tow, Steele, Wcrdine, Hinchman, Berry, Burklow.

Michigan City, ever trying, managed to find a weak spot in the Maroon forward wall and sent its driving fullback, Stevenson, through the line for first down after first down, the drive culminating in a touchdown for the Imps. After recovering from the terrific beating by Mishawaka, the team invaded the home of the strong Elkhart aggregation. In a hard fought battle, the Devils tested the true strength of the Blue Avalanche. Ronzone, Elkhart fullback, intercepted a pass and ran 55 yards for the winning touchdown. Elkhart showed a tricky offense, which was hard for the Imps to solve. Stevenscn again scored Michigan City’s lone touchdown. Elkhart eked out a I 3-7 victory. To ring down the curtain on the grid season, Michigan City beat a strong Peru outfit, 15-13. A blocked punt by Burklow, the ball going into the end zone, provided the winning margin. In the third quarter. Stevenson, after a spectacular 78 yard run, scored Michigan City’s final touchdown of the season. Because of the lack of experience on the part of most of the players, the Imps failed to show a very impressive record. Statistics show that the Red Devils were able to garner 60 points off their opponents throughout the season, while their opposition scored 92 points in nine games. The Imps won two games, dropped four, and tied three.Page Sixty-four Football Just five regulars will be graduating from the ranks of high school gridders. Those graduating are: Captain Ralph Bowman, Ross Hinchman, Val Burklow, Harold Wright, and Howard Hennard. Coach Gill found great prospects in Stevenson, Keen, Captain-elect Don Werdine, Krueger, and Santow. With the return of this squad, possibilities are brighter for next year. “Fuzzy'' Stevenson received honorable mention on the allconference team, and Don Werdine won a "most valuable player" award sponsored by The News and the Tivoli Theater by receiving the most votes from Michigan City football fans.Page Sixty-five Team 1936 y Tc»|» Berry.

Gone to join the ranks of the alumni were Vergane, Flotow, Ciolek. Burau. and Gay. Only Haughey, Berry, and Krueger were left from the great Imp team that invaded Butler Field House at Indianapolis. With the exception of these three, the boys making up this year’s squad were the same players who lost fourteen consecutive games while playing as a B unit. The outlook was very gloomy for Coach Ellis, but he took things in hand and prepared to produce a winning team. The Ellismen opened the season against the invincible alumni quintet. The alumni proved their worth to the full when they beat a bewildered Imp five, 31-19. On Wednesday. November 27, the Imps tasted their first victory by beating the Knox Redskins. 34-23. On the following Saturday the Devils again played host, but this time to South Side of Fort Wayne. The game was so close and fast all the way that neither team held more than a small advantage at any time. Michigan City, however, proved too powerful, and the Archers bowed, 2 7-22. The first conference game of the season was dropped by the Devils to a highly rated Elkhart quint, which later went on to take the conference honors. The Elkhart team had a decided advantage with its rangy basketeers, controlling play under the basket. The Imps, after a hard fight, conceded to the determined Blue Blazers, 29-17. The following evening the Devils traveled to East Chicago to play the Washington Senators. Michigan City, playing smooth basketball, gained a 22-1 1 advantage over the Senators at the half time. East Chicago, still in the fight, opened the second half with a fast passing attack, which penetrated the Devils' defense and spelled victory for the Senators, 33-26. Ellis and his charges forgot to hang up their stockings for Christmas, and Santa Claus passed victories around to LaPorte, Hammond Tech, Roosevelt, Emerson, and Goshen. After holding a narrow margin on their traditional foes through the greater part of the contest, the imps succumbed to a last minute rally by LaPorte, 21-19. In the Tech game the Imps played superb ball for three quarters, but Tech refused to admit defeat and came back in the last session to overhaul the Devils and snatch a 29-25 victory. The next week brought sorrow upon sorrow for Coach Ellis and his boys. This occurred in the Gary Holiday TourneyPage Sixty-seven B a s k e t b a I I where the Imps drew Emerson of Gary for their first opponent. The Norsemen gained an early start and at the midway period held a seven point lead. In the third quarter Michigan City turned on a rally, which changed the lead to 21-20 in favor of the Ellismen. However, thirteen points in the final quarter by the Norsemen was enough to down the Devils. 38-24. At nine o'clock the next morning the Imps met Roosevelt of East Chicago in the consolation game. Again that fourth quarter slump hit the Red Devils. The Imps unleashed a merciless and demoralizing attack to pile up an eleven point lead in the first three stanzas, to lose their advantage in the fourth to the East Chicagoans and lose. 22-20. Seven days later the Devils dropped their second conference game to a domineering Goshen team on the Redskins’ floor, 24-16. The Ellismen chalked up their eighth consecutive defeat to a high scoring Bluffton five, who entirely outclassed the Devils, scoring fifteen field goals to win, 35-14. Another hair-raising fourth quarter finish beat the Imps at Nappanee, 28-26. The Bulldogs scored on an almost impossible one handed shot with just seconds to go in the fourth quarter, after the Devils had fought frantically to keep themselves in the ball game, tying the score, 26-26, in the fourth period. The next day the Devils traveled to Niles, Michigan, where they displayed unusual form to beat the Niles quintet. 31-20. How 1. Novcroske, Mecr. Migliore, Haughcy. Wilson. Scndcrak. Row 2.

The Devils’ defense was a little stronger when they held the Bruins to a 20-1 1 victory. On Saturday, January 25, the Ellismen played host to the Rochester Zebras. The Zebras, who were defeated by the Imps last year by one point, again bowed to them, 21-17. The Imps traveled to La-Porte for their third conference game, determined to square things for the previous defeat rendered by the Slicers earlier in the season. LaPorte, however, romped through the Red Devils almost at will and piled up a 28-1 7 score. Michigan City won its first conference joust by beating a favored Mishawaka five, 20-16. Both teams played cautiously in the first half, conserving their strength for the final period. At the home of South Bend Riley, the Imps lost another league tilt to the Wildcats. 30-24. The victory was determined by charity tosses. A week later the Imps scored a decisive 28-21 victory over North Judson on the local high school court. The Red Devils led all the way.

The Ellismen uncorked a determined rally in the last half, to tie the score, send the game into a 28-28 overtime. and continue on to win the game, 31-29. Michigan City, heavy cofavorites with LaPorte in the LaPorte sectional, easily survived the first round by defeating Mill Creek, 37-17. After the Devils had established a 9-3 lead in the first quarter. Coach F.llis inserted the reserves who went on to take an easy victory. The Imps then went on to meet the highly favored LaPorte Sheers. Leading throughout the entire game, the LaPorte Slicers beat a hard-fighting Imp team, 30-23, after staving off a desperate Michigan City third quarter rally. Captain Haughey was given the distinction of being placed on the official all-conference basketball team, holding down one of the guard positions. Graduation will claim only three regulars from this year’s squad. They are Captain Jim Haughey, Louis Krueger, and George Sterne.l'agc Seventy Golf Fore . . . swish . . . the 1936 golf season has opened. Standing on the first green at the local golf course. Oscar explains to the bewildered Penny the fundamentals of the spring sport. Enlightened by this information, Penny begins to look around and take interest. “Who are those two golfers standing by the first hole?" questions Penny. “Why, the boy on your left is our number one man Robert Peters, a capable veteran from last year. The other. Sam Bohlim, is another regular and steady player, holding down the number two position," relates Oscar. "And who are these two players coming up the fairway?" asks Penny. "They are George Sterne and Larry Dwyer, who complete the foursome, holding numbers three and four positions, respectively." "And who is that stocky individual showing so much interest in the boys?" "He is Michigan City's distinguished golf coach. Mr. A. J. Parsons," submits Oscar. Sponsor League "Shoot, Bob shoot . . . ." "Come on, Leroy; he out-jumped you a foot that time .... "That's it. shoot . . . shoot . . .” “Stand back, you fellows, don't crowd out on the floor. "Hey. Oscar, who's that team? They surely look like winners." "They are. Penny; that's the Maxey sponsor team, undefeated, and winners of last year's sponsor league also . . . hey, get off my feet; they may look like rugs, but they’re not. "Who plays for Maxey's sponsor group?" "Oh. I don’t know. Penny; there’s Leroy Breitzka. Valgene Burklow, Bernard Harris, Russell Bowman, William Tramski, and Hassen Abraham." TIME MARCHES ON—APRIL "Hello, Oscar. So you came down to see McConkey play basketball, did you? Hey, take your elbow out of my ribs, will you . . . oh, by the way, Oscar, who are the players for McConkey; do you know?" "Yes, 1 know; the red-headed boy is Elden Cooney. The others are George Baines, Gordon Jay, Frederick Bruemmer, Louis Buckingham. Harold Finley, and Captain Norman Beiderstadt." "Come on, Oscar; they have this game on ice.

But energetic Penny had other plans. “Come on; get out from under the shade of that tree and show me Michigan City’s track team.” “If you insist—let’s go. Well, here we are. That’s Mr. Delbert Miller, the coach, working with the sprinters.” “Who are those boys there with him?" inquired Penny. “They look plenty fast.” “They’re Michigan City’s dash hopefuls this year: Jim Garwood. Chet Krueger, Archie Grant. Bill Mahl, and Bernie Harris.” “What are those runners going to do?” “Those are the distance runners getting warmed up.” said Oscar. “From the pole to the outer lane the boys are lined up in the following order: Meer, Regas, Bruemmer, Hedricks, and Bowman.” “Who are some of the other prospects for the track team?” questioned Penny. “Well, Jim Haughey has exceptional ability at the pole vault; Louis Krueger will take care of the high jump; and “Fuzzy” Stevenson, of the shot put.” “1 ought to be able to throw that shot fairly well myself; get a load of these flippers on me," bragged Penny. “Poor puny Penny; I’ll wager you couldn’t even lift it.

"Soccer. . . ." INDOOR SPORTS But Oscar was not listening. He was looking in retrospect at the activities of the girls’ athletic season. Soccer came first, with three teams playing the hard-fought tournament, which lasted through October, 1935, with Margaret Wright's team kicking its way to victory. The indoor sport season came next with volley ball and basketball in swift succession. There were five teams with leaders Lucille Steele, Margaret Wright, Jennie Mae Streeter. Helen Blande, and Betty Jackson. Close games brought Jennie Mae Streeter's team out in front as winners . . . with her were Marian Weidner, Evelyn Majot, Justine Johnson. Hazel Mae Helms, Margaret DeMass. Dorothy Haughey, Longina Klosowski, and Genevieve Zaideman. FAST AND PEPPY Basketball . . . best, fastest, and peppiest game of them all, saw Dorothy Flemming’s team taking first place, and Betty Jackson, star center of the team, doing much to help in winning the tournament.

With spotless vest and neat black tie He’s always spic and span. His shrunken wings are quite like arms Drawn up into wide sleeves. His friendly gestures seem to say. “My one aim is to please.” The penguin is attractive In natty, full-dress suit; With long-tailed coat and cocky hat. He s really very cute. Although the penguins cannot fly. They swim with utmost ease. They re quite at home on shallow lakes Or on high, raging seas. These curious creatures sit at dusk In groups of two or three And all the happenings of the day Discuss most seriously. The handsome birds are very brave. And up where cold winds blow. The fearless little fellows Will battle any foe. We might well take a lesson From the penguins’ pride and pluck. They triumph over stress and strife With courage more than luck. The rules of life are much the same For bird and beast and man. To fi nd success and happiness. We have to work and plan. Audrey Lee KirkmanI ;»Kc Highly-one A Penny for Your Thoughts Penny, as you know or don't know, is the spritely little maid who has been adventuring throughout the pages of this book. At times her characters expel themselves as caricatures. Anyhow, since Penny has been so many characters, let us incorporate her as just one throughout the length of an average high school day. You saw Penny enter the building. If you didn't, turn back and look. The main idea is that she's in and on the way to her locker. As she arrives, her day begins. Penny's pal, Gwenny, pops up and tells her the latest about her boy friend. Then they stalk around the halls, throwing glances at the good-looking males. After a few rounds they end up in their sponsor room, which is in the assembly. Sponsor teachers are in charge of the students at large, and the morning siesta is begun by the reading of the Bible, bulletin, and so forth or fifth. Penny ventures a few winks at her favorite male, who, by the by, contrary to names has the moniker "Oscar". Oscar takes the hint, and with a flippant gesture signals for Penny to wait for him. When the sponsor period ends. Penny meets Oscar. Arm in arm and cheek to cheek, they scamper along the hallways to their first class, art. Penny dives into the modeling clay and takes a mud bath. She makes a plumber, which is appropriate because plumbers, (when working) look like statues, anyhow. Penny leaves Oscar as the bell rings and passes out to her next class, band. Penny plays the tuba four in the band, and it keeps her in shape for her heavy dates. As a soloist she interprets Philthy McNasty's "Unvarnished Phoney Symphony—Andante in E flat Major Bowes." Amid adverse applause she exits to the cooking class. In this subject. Penny excels. She’s a cake stirrin’ fool when it comes to making pancakes. Since it is a hot day. Penny bakes and bakes until she raises a temper-ature, and she produces a burned soup. The teacher pardons her this time, and she makes her way to dramatics. The bell cuts off Penny's love scene in "Romeo and Juliet," and she joins the mad rush to dinner. Oscy (getting more informal) calls, and they ride to school in his model T board. Gwenny and Penny start off the afternoon together by treking to the class in foreign language, English. After learning how to spell and pronounce a few words, they go to a more familiar tongue, French. "Wee wee, non non, O reservoir, toot sweet, and bonfire” make up Penny’s French vocabulary of which she is very proud. Now the girls trot off (Continued on page 87)Pages from the Diary of Any Senior Qirl September 20, 1935 Dear Diary, Some pep session we had today in the "barn"! It really put us back in the harness of school after summer vacation. The candidates for yell leaders tried out and revived every yell we ever had. Mr. Gill introduced the football squad for this fall, and it looks like a promising season, all right. Tootle-oo Thursday, November 7, 1935 Hi Ya Toots: The reason for my frivolity is the fact that there isn’t any school this afternoon. It’s "back-to-school" night for Mother and Dad. Mother will enjoy school all right, but 1 told her she’d miss the best part of all because she wouldn't be given an opportunity to take gym and dress in the famous I i minute fashion. (Maybe that is a little exaggerated.) Too Bad! Friday, November 15, 1935 Diary— Well. Lucile Parkhouse certainly succeeded tonight in teaching Carter Manny not to eat soup as if he were paddling through the Panama Canal. The play was a riot. Carter Manny very ably depicted the part of the crude but humorous father, while Lucile Parkhouse portrayed Erstwhile Susan, the character from whom the play received its name. Incidentally, John Kahn displayed some good technique in the art of love making which might be of some assistance next year. You know 1936 is Leap Year. Until Tomorrow. Wednesday, November 27, 1935 Dear Nuisance, You are a nuisance sometimes, but tonight it’s a pleasure to write to you. At last our yelling brought results. We won our first basketball game of the season by a score of 34-23. We played against Knox, but we didn't get the knocks: they did. Some fun, eh kid? Wednesday. December 4. 1935 Dear Diary. Believe it or not, I believe in miracles since 1 saw Eugene Laurant today at the convo. He’s one of the seven bestPage Kiullly- Pages from the Diary of Any Senior Girl magicians in the U. S.. and as clever as he is, he should be able to sell ice to the Eskimos and make them like it. I thought the best of all his exhibitions was the grand finale in which he produced a large, silk, American flag. Yes sir, there certainly are tricks in all trades. Good night— Thursday, February 18, 1936 Diary mine, Mr. A. K. Smith was the speaker at the annual Mother-Son banquet tonight in the cafeteria. He spoke on the subject "Rationalize, Set Your Stakes". You probably are wondering why I write to you of this occasion. Simply this, what's a diary without mention of the stronger sex? You guessed it, nothing at all! The only thing I got out of it was a smell of the dinner about 4 o’clock and a report from the B. F. about ten that it was a swell feed. That's all there is. Monday, March 2, 1936 Dear Diary— The suspense is over at last. The cast of the Senior Play. "The Youngest." was announced today in the Comet. Lee Schneider and Yvonne Morris have the leads. You remember that Yvonne also had the lead in our Junior Play, "The Lion and the Mouse . The other members of the cast are Frank Wellnitz. Shirley Krueger. Margaret Hart, Maynard Clemens. Barbara Gale, Arthur Harris, and Kaleen Kocikowski. All reports point toward success. Here's hoping, Wednesday, March 18, 1936 My Diary, Our convo today certainly started off with a bang. Mr. James Williams was the lecturer, and he performed several interesting experiments with liquid air. Some of the various sundry queer articles which he produced with this liquid were marbles made out of cranberries, rubber balls that broke in a million pieces when you bounced them, and hot dogs that were as hard as rocks. Really, diary, 1 think it would have entertained even you. G'Night.Page Highly-seven Pages from the Diary of Any Senior Girl End of May, 1936 Sometime between sunset and dawn but nearer dawn than sunset. Diary Dear. Well, we are taking our leave from this dear old institution with much pomp and circumstance. A free translation of the former sentence is as follows: The seniors are leaving Isaac C. Elston High in grand style. This evening at six-thirty o'clock we met at Barker Hall for the Junior-Senior Prom. The entertainment was lovely, and the beauty of the ballroom was enhanced by the gorgeous decorations. Do you remember the dinner-dance we gave the seniors last year? Ours was also at Barker Hall. And remember the Chinese decorations and good luck charms? Oh, the juniors did have a grand party for us. but is it unfair to say that ours was nice, too? And is it too much mutual admiration on our part if we agree that the Class of '36 is a real class? Yes. school days were lovely while they lasted, but do you realize that they are almost over? Sweet Dreams--- Ruth McCracken. (Continued from page 81) to another class, geometry, to learn how to geom. In the course of the day. Penny finds out that all teachers are book worms except the math teacher. He's an Engle worm. However, she consoles herself with the fact that school days are the happiest days and proceeds to household hints, her eighth period class. Here the teacher explains how to make an easy chair easier, and how to make a pint of ice cream reach around fifty guests. Her pet hint is a parlor hint and is too confidential to be given here. Oscy meets Penny and escorts her to her locker. He waxes sentimental and asks for a prom date. That is what Penny has been hoping for. Does she accept? What a silly story— 1 mean question. Well, that makes this day an extraordinary day for Penny instead of an average day. and so I'll have to tell you about an average day some other time. Stille Nacht. Bon Jour, and Hi-de-ho.

One day while Penny and Oscar were on their way to school, they saw a large bus parked before the school. Penny remarked, “Another bus? Who’s going places now? Seems to me everybody is going away but us, Oscar." ”1 bet 1 know who that is! The commercial teams have been training for weeks to go to that mecca of commercial students, the grand city of Muncie. 1 know what we can do. Let's stow away on the bus and go along with them." Muncie and Ball State Teachers’ College were reached. "Wouldn’t it be awful if we, 1 mean Michigan City, didn't win anything?" worried Penny. "Just like a woman,” replied Oscar caustically, "always thinking of the worst.’ Penny’s fears were all in vain, for Michigan City’s name was called frequently. When the smoke cleared from the battleground of victory, it appeared that Michigan City had placed second in beginning typing and second in advanced typing. The shorthand wizards had been just as fortunate, for first place was taken by the beginning shorthand team and third place, by the advanced shorthand team. Oscar and Penny were able to attend the Victory Ball, which was given in honor of the contestants in the Ball gymnasium. It had been all decorated in red and white, which Oscar insisted was in honor of Michigan City. "For were we not," argued Oscar, "the proud sharers in three cups? Why, the teams won the shorthand cup, the typing cup, and were tied for the goal of all cities in Indiana. The GOVERNOR'S CUP!"Page Highly-mm (graduation The dawn is breaking! In the east where earth meets sky. Bronze and flame the sunrise glows To show us all the beauty Of the dew-drenched morn. It calls to us to follow And to find the golden wonder Lying yonder in the fairyland Behind those radiant bars of light. It is spring, and we are young; So we heed that silent call. With hearts afire We wander through the meadows. Down a dusty road We find a rippling brook And roses, flawless but untamed. We see a tangled forest Where sprawling roots ensnare our weary feet, Where thorns and branches chafe our tender skins. But with the thoughts of joy to come We struggle on. We find a flower-strewn vale And think our goal is near. But still a rugged hill Obstructs our way. Undaunted, we climb the pathless rocks. And when we reach the peak, we see— Our dreams in glorious colors, realized- A shining world below and all around us. Reflected in the glory of achievement That is ours.

Put away your books, please’ immediately brings to mind Miss Dahlberg and the library. And when thinking of the library, one cannot but associate with it the many things which Miss Dahlberg and her assistants do for the school in the course of the year. One of the most outstanding events which they sponsor each November is "Book Week,” a national feature to stimulate the reading of better books. At this time the assistants are privileged to work on any phase of literature in which they are interested and to build a project around this main idea. This year the exhibits were very novel. “The Amusement Park," worked cut by Jane Hibbs and Micky Peat, had all its concessions made up of miniature books. The admission price was "Wise Use of Leisure Time." Marjory Anderson and Yvonne Morris chose as their subject “Careers." It showed the building of success. Mary Jane Brady, Marjory Ohming, and Harriet Hall constructed "The Book House of Fun," which was decorated entirely with covers of books and magazines. "A Trip Around the World' was composed by Delphine Loy and Betty Beahan, and Flda Jordan, Norma Katz, and Betty Valleau used "Airplanes" • as their theme. Mary Lois Munning, Jean Myers, and Jeanette Steinke worked out "A Wheel of Hobbies. and Barbara Gale and Pat Peat used magazines for their exhibit. At the Book Week tea. which climaxes the week’s activities. Miss Mabel Engstrom and Mr. L. W. Smith chose "The Amusement Park" as the best project and "The Book House of Fun" as the second. In addition to stimulating reading among the students, the librarians also establish the Christmas spirit when the holidays approach, and each six weeks the girls contribute ten cents toward the purchase of one of the new and modern books. As assistants, the girls are required to send out notices of over-due books, keep teachers posted on literature that is of special interest to them, and give out those familiar little slips of paper with the heading "Ninth Period Assignment." In addition to the assistants mentioned above, the group also includes Dorcas Brummel and Shirley Ploner.Page Ninety thrcc Fare tv ell We, the Class of 36, are wending on our ways. Some to college, some to work, and some to distant bays. We had such fun at football games and basketball games, too That we regret it very much to have to say “adieu”. On October 9th of 32 came our first big event— Our Freshman-Sophomore party, to which, of course, we went. The next year it was our turn to fete the freshmen dear; So we a party also gave and filled each heart with cheer. Our junior year then rolled around, and to a crowded house Our Junior Class presented then “The Lion and the Mouse”. The Junior Prom, too. went off swell; each little thing was fine. And it was then we bade farewell to kids we’d miss in time. Our senior year was gay and bright, activities galore; So this gave us no time at all to think school was a bore. Our year book had to be put out; we gave our Senior Play; And last of all in May we reached dear old Commencement Day. Our high school days are over now. but never could we buy The happiness of all the hours we’ve spent at M. C. High.
