'cn visitingJ no xwd tke Campus Hi kids! How's tricks? Speaking of tricks—say, we've got plenty of 'em up our sleeve this year. So now we think it’s about time to pull them out and show them to you. We are presenting a series of events that link the studes together with work, play, and study. It is a glimpse of high school youth on parade. You'll see us "in our laughing, in our sighing, and in our crying." That's a confession from the Elstonian staff! So help us! By the way, these shots of the "old camp grounds" are pretty snazzy—this is only the beginning. This 1940 Elstonian, the 25th annual edition, is really different. If you don't believe us, just get a copy of the 1915 Elstonian and compare them! Just wait until you see the senior pictures, the basketball and football pages, girls' sports, faculty,—whoa! Look for yourself. You’ll be surprised! In the following pages we have tried to express our "school daze" with snaps of minglers, Book Week, drama, comedy, and tragedy. So start right here and see MCHS in action. . . .Top—Our own senior high school. Bottom—A view of the junior high school. Left—The recently constructed auditorium.lornins at the cloee iue thlo ly return oeriodSchool dioanc!! MR. E. H. UTLEY Here we introduce the administrative part of the school. Mr. Utley heads this department — and very effectively, too. MRS. R. W. RYDZY As treasurer, Mrs. Rydzy helps to keep our high school running smoothly. MR. HENRY MILLER Mr. Miller, as secretary, completes the “eternal triangle.” Thanks to all three for their friendly co-operation. We appreciate it! MISS ALMA SCHILF The financial secretary of the Board is responsible for many tasks and does them all well. Thanks to you, too! 8SupeTiiritendltrit (nun.ci.paC MR. M. L. KNAPP Peeking through the keyhole of the administrative department, we meet an old friend, Mr. Knapp, our new superintendent. We have indeed missed him during this past year, but we know that he is fulfilling his new duties to a MR. C. F. HUMPHREY Seeking new grounds, Mr. Humphrey moved over from the junior high school in September and has very capably filled the shoes vacated by Mr. Knapp. 9Here we find our profs at an informal teachers’ meeting. Although Mr. Humphrey is getting impatient, Messrs. Gill, Long, and Johnson stroll nonchalantly in. Mr. Sellers and Miss Murphy stop for a little chat, while Miss Nolin and Miss Shepherd are hard at work in the kitchen. Who would have “thunk” it? Three grown up men with ice cream bars! Mr. Schaeffer and Mr. Ten Harkel watch while Miss Se-hesta admonishes Mr. Parsons. Mr. Troyer is put to work—(hats what you get for coming early—See— Mr. Thorne is smart. Mr. Neff and Mr. Maxey find time to glance through some magazines, while Mr. Nicholas, Miss Smith, Mr. Purvis, Mr. Troyer (again) and Mr. Miller are first in line for the “eats.” ..Food in sight, and Mr. Buchanan, Miss Schwabenland, and Mr. Smith read over the Constitution!—Can’t understand it! cicuftu Here Mr. Irgang and Miss Lee talk over old times. We find Miss Eng-strom. Miss Gardner, Mrs. Toner, Miss McAfee, Miss McConkey, and Miss Southgate sipping tea. Look who’s over there with all the ladies—none sther than Mr. Griffin—with Mrs. Mann, Mrs. Wineman, and Miss Luck. Miss Halte- and an unseen friend talk over the day’s work. Some people are always looking for new ideas. Here are Mrs. Kelly and Mrs. Hart looking over a new book, while Miss )ahl-berg is busy at the clipping tile. Are Mrs. Anderson and Miss Munson in a heated discussion over their respective clubs? Mr. Myran seems happy, though he may be too late for refreshments.CfaM fefectionA Wonder what all the grins are for? Oh, of course, these kids have a right to smile. They've just been elected president, vice-president, and secretary of their respective classes. On the left are Goldie and Paul. They are the sponsors of the senior class. Have they got a job! Whew! Then Chuck Vincent with his little smirk is “the pres," Leo Gross with his bad eye is vice, while Natalie "take a note Johnson is secretary. The juniors chose as their president "Jeeps” Dry. Gordon Davis is vice-president, and Ruth Nuoffer, secretary. Deane McAfee, a new prof, really got into some prom work with Jim Griffin. Below are the sophs with “R. B." and “Schwabey" sponsoring together. Walter Sjoberg is their president, and “Rubber" Nevorski is vice-president. Leola (another one!) Gropp is secretary.

All six did nice jobs and are to he congratulated. Dorothy Ragland, David Beck. Betty Jacobsen, Gordon Davis, Carl Ulrich. Kenneth Burnette.  Wn. qm A name that has long been synonymous with athletics in Michigan City is the name of “Andy". This name belongs to the head of the athletic department, Andy Gill. Andy coached athletics in Michigan City for seventeen years before assuming his new position. Most of the students are not aware of the record Andy compiled before coming to Michigan City. He attended Indiana University and while there captained the baseball and football teams. He also won 1 1 letters in 5 sports, being one of few people to accomplish this feat at Indiana. Later he played baseball in the American Association and then with the White Sox. Before coming to Michigan City, he coached at Albania College and the Universities of North Dakota and Kentucky. Throughout his coaching experience at Elston high he produced many successful teams, his highest achievement being in 1936 when he won the conference crown. This year Andy, in addition to his duties as physical director, is coaching the newly formed baseball team. 19lie, Frank bolka Mil" OszuFCii: Paulin Rebac, Frank Schultz, Hovrun ootbc l These boys certainly do make handsome Romeos with their headgear, shoulder pads, and crimson and white jersies. Don't you think so? Or don't you? Remember seeing them at Ames field last fall and after school sweating, and groaning, and dirt collecting at practice? They started a new era in football for Michigan City, together with our new coach, Duane Purvis, and night football under the lights at Ames Field. The boys started the season by losing a tough battle to Parker High of Chicago, 7-0. Next Niles, Goshen, and St. Mary’s fell before the Devil on-rush by decisive scores. Afterwards the Imps failed to annex a single victory, losing to Central, Riley, Washington, Elkhart, and LaPorte in succession. La Porte’s three B’s—Banks, Bachman, and Buschner— proved too much for the Imps; LaPorte wron, 31-0. The plunging of Captain Stan Senderak, the open field running of Smiertelny and Jankowski, and Stevens’ passing ability composed the running attack of Michigan City, backed up in the line by such bruisers as Lubke, Oszuscik, Brooker, Paulin, Allie, Schultz, and Lueth. The success of this year’s team was fair, but next year’s hopes loom bright on the showing of the scrub team. It is said that great teams are built, and this year’s team is only a step toward the future successful teams of Coach Duane Purvis. Coach Purvis, Clarence Schlundt, John Schaeffer, start the pictures on the opposite page.

Never really organized until this fall, the club, under the direction of Mr. Buchanan, has gotten admirable results from its program for the promotion of school spirit. High-points of the Derbies’ year were their spectacular bonfire before the LaPorte game and the swell decorations that the club put up for the sectional.

Every year the Dahlites divide into groups, and with great secrecy, work out clever and unique projects. These displays can be seen on the library tables during Book Week. The main theme of Book Week this year was "Books around the World,” and some clever displays were derived from it, as we all remember. To climax the week, the girls have their tea. The program for the tea was cleverly based around a Dahlite meeting, with the girls planning the tea. A highlight of the program was a reading which Mrs. Wickham gave about buying books. Kathleen Couden, Barbara Zeck, Charlotte Levercnz, and Irma Nyg-ren made the winning Book Week project, using as their theme “There is no frigate like a hook. ’ The annual tea, held in honor ol the mothers and teachers was. as in other years, a huge success. Dorothy Putz is pouring, while Miss Dahlbcrg, Bonny I’loner, Jacqueline Blanchard, M e li s s a Luccht, and Ruth Harbart help themselves. 27MRS.

Trying their hand at acting for the first time, these juniors really deserve some credit, and we don’t mean maybe. We remember when we were juniors, too! Remember how we got “goose pimples” watching the murder mystery develop into a surprise ending? Gee, were we scared! Thanks to Mr. Buchanan for his capable job of directing, too. It was a swell play!

As you can easily see, they really got some cooperation from the student body. The boys in the Hi-Y helped to distribute the clothing, canned goods, and toys among the needy. Their reward?--------the satisfaction of having been able to make some unfortunate family happy on Thanksgiving. Here we find Ben Nygren, Donald Lamhka, Frank Sprague, Mrs. Weaver, Bonnie Jean Cooley, Mrs. Wcstphal, Mrs. Dierkes, and Clarence Schlundt, who helped prepare the baskets. 33cHomx 6con.om.Lc4 These girls were given a chance to show what they could do. Did they strut their stuff! How the other studes envied them when they started serving tea and cake to the teachers off duty for a period! Nelda Clough and Mary Jane Lucas wait patiently for some brave girl to be first. Mildred Werth, June Tadros, Mary Wozniak, and Natalie Johnson watch Irene Ratenski, Elaine Jaske, Dorothy Frankow-ski, Betty Lange, Margaret Chrapkowski, Frances Potkey, Martha Makus, Charlotte Ashley, and Eunice Smith model garments made in sewing classes.

That’s how it’s done any way; demonstration by Gloria Fausch and Ruth Nuoffer. Since we always seem to need a prompter, Nell Andrest has sneaked into the picture. We thought that this group of Blackfrairs should in their learned way strike a nice theatrical smile. Jeanne Scharnberg, Mildred Blaskey, Marionne Sieb, Blanche Stephens, Phyllis Henry, Bert Henry, Gerhard Klouman, Norman Ziegler, Carl Ulrich, and Randall Miller obliged us. Here’s the lull before the storm—the play reading committee before the play—Phyllis Kuhn, Frank Sprague, Gerhard Klouman, Harold Johnson, and Thespian sponsor, Miss Luck. After every play it’s the same thing—new Thespian members. Irma Nygren, Clara Schnabel, Geraldine Speese, Norman Ziegler, Marjorie Farber, Sara Sal-massy, Joe Schwager, Carl Ulrich, Gordon Davis, Jean Burnett, Richard Precious, a little man who almost wasn’t there— Harold Johnson. Some of us “oldies” lined up in various theatrical poses (slumps). Sara Salmassy, Bert Henry, Marjorie Farber, (They naturally would stand together) Charles Vincent, Joe Schwager, our “once-was” sponsor Mr. Thorne, Martin Miller, Phyllis Kuhn, and Frank Sprague. 35Roll out the barrell, Mr. Hancock, or is it empty already ? . . . LeRoy Ruetz’s knees are quaking as he nears his destination—the detention room. . . . Yes, they're alive even though they do look a little the worse for wear. Who are they? Don Bleck and Phil Sprague . . . Woops! A little accident. Rudolph Keith-ly seems to be having a little trouble with his store room or is he having spring house-cleaning? I can’t figure out how he got all that stuff in one locker. Oh, well. . . . There goes the bell! With bangs and crashes the study hall mob is off to the next class period. . . . Those boys are working! In case you can’t identify the-er-they belong to Martin Miller, Charles Vincent, and Don Bleck. . . . Poor Morris, the fall guy.

What’s the joke, fellas? Say, what is this? Mr. Irgang’s group is all smiles, too! I wish you would let us in on whatever is so interesting! 43All of our orchestra members seem intent on watching Mr. My ran (as all good members do) except Randall Miller. Who is she Randy? All kidding aside, we want to compliment the members, ami if you have ever heard them, you know we have one swell orchestra! I . J. My ran (director), Dorothy Volksdorf.

Aren’t they rather heavy to “t o t e” around? Constance Middle-ton, LaVina Wild), Irene Ratenski. and M a r g c a n Schultz don’t seem to think so. I believe we have here the studes that handle the swing. If you have heard Harold Wendt, you know he is really “hot” and nothing less. Kenneth Hcdstrom is going to National with his horn. Then there arc the others including— Joyce Ber ridge, Frank Hyer, Joyce Larsen, Roger Keene, George McCormack, Lawrence I angc, Richard Gale, Ralph Odle, Rogers Holloway, Clayton Marks, and Warren Cook—who really give us our swing in school. 44Oricke tTia The orchestra! When we say that, we usually think of something very grand. It has given our school a fine rating in the way of music, having taken many honors above that of other schools. Its aim is to promote a better appreciation of music. Mr. My ran gets the best from everyone, from the first violins to the basses. The orchestra has about fifty members and is like the other organizations in that it has its officers. Last September they chose the following studes as their leaders: Randall Miller, president; Naomi Whipple, vice-president; Lois Geiger, Mildred Steele, and Irene Ratenski, secretaries; and Jean Taylor, Betty Bell, and Imogene Thompson, librarians. Well, well, here we have three nice looking gals all ready to give out with some rhythm — or something! Kathleen Couden and Lois Westphal are handling the “vib,” and Marion Gross-man will beat the “tymps.” It was very kind of all you studes to look at the camera. This is the string section of the orchestra. The one hoy among all the .girls is Robert Wood. The girls are Lois Geiger, Dovic Burklow, Betty Kascr, La-verne Pickford. Shirley Or-lowski. Jean Lange, and Luella Boon st ra. Of course, Mr. My ran watches over the flock. 45(Eianc!

Doesn’t it bring back memories of the show? We certainly enjoyed this play about a certain Don Alonso and his search for buried treasure. We were really happy when he found it, too! At any rate, the cast deserves a bouquet for its fine work. To the left below we see Mr. Thorne putting on some make-up or biting his tongue—we don t know which. On the right we find the chorus. They really clicked at the play—and for the camera, too, as you can see. At the bottom is a picture of the whole cast. We haven t room to tell all their names, but you know them all, anyway. If you don’t, ask Mr. Ten Harkel or Mr. Thorne—they did the directing, you know.Quiff and! Scnoff These studes are the members of Quill and Scroll. For those that don’t know what the club is, we will explain. It’s an honorary organization for our school journalists. Some of the qualifications include being in the upper third of your class in scholastic standing, doing superior work in writing, editing, or business management, being recommended by the supervisor, and being approved by the national secretary-treasurer. The membership in this club is what all the students taking journalism strive for.

This year the Red Devils won fifteen games while losing eleven; however, of the fifteen home games, the Devils captured twelve. This team certainly furnished the fans with plenty of thrills and excitement. Remember the first LaPorte game in which Jim Dry tied the score with only five seconds remaining to play? Then Link scored for LaPorte to win the game, thirty-three to thirty-one. Remember the stretch in which the Imps played five games in eight days and the game at Muncie in which Dick Spychalski garnered twenty-four of Michigan City’s forty-one points? Then there’s the final game with LaPorte in the sectional, which was held here for the first time in eleven years. The Devils led by two points with only a few minutes left to play, only to have LaPorte slip in two baskets to win, thirty-six to thirty-four. Shooting: Dick Kruse.

The award was made after Ted had been voted most valuable player by the people of our town. This hard hitting, hard running ball carrier was high point man for the season. Coach Duane Purvis is shown presenting Ted with the most valuable player award on the stage of the Tivoli Theatre. The annual award is sponsored by the Tivoli and News-Dispatch. In this picture we caught a typical scene during the heat of a game. Jim Dry, one of the Ellismen, has just been called out of play to rest and get some pointers. Coach Ellis has pounced upon Jimmy, who is thought of as being quite a dependable guard. If Mr. Ellis had more hair, it would probably be as ruffled as his facial expression. “Jeeps” Dry is a favorite with the crowd, because his long field goals have pulled more than one game out of the fire. Right now I question his personality appeal. 54Qinlk £pont These girls arc n’t weaklings—not by any means. They represent the winning teams for this year. Maybe that's the reason for the broad grins.

II. S’s sports schedule up until the very last day of school. This year a new sport was added to Klston high’s schedule—that of baseball. This team was coached by Andy Gill. As this was the first year of participation, the exact strength was not known, but the possibility for a successful year l ecame bright with the holding of the first practice. Games were scheduled with Chesterton. Springfield, and Wincmac. together with conference games with Washington, Central, Klkhart, Napannee, LaPorte. and Riley. The parallel bar team composed of Hud Lutz, Everett Stockinger. George Bryan, and LcRoy Ructz practiced after school throughout the winter months. The boys worked voluntarily, as there is no competition in this sport. The golf team loomed as a contender for conference and state honors with all members of last year’s team returning. Jim Mathias was number one man on the team, followed by Jim Erickson and the Joers twins, Arnold and Ronald. The team engaged in conference matches and invitational tourneys at LaPorte, and in the state tournament at the Speedway course in Indianapolis. The tennis team engages in activities only in the fall. This season they won five matches, while losing two. Bob Lichtenbcrg, number one man on the team, was beaten only twice during the season. Alex Viau is number two. followed by Bill Mclntire and Harold Johnson. Prospects seem slim next year, with Bill Mclntire the only veteran returning. This season the track team engaged in more meets than ever before, the total being eleven. The season was climaxed by the state meet at Indianapolis. 56Our cameraman found the track boys “off guard’’; so here they arc. Here’s some action! It doesn’t look very hard for Don Mann. Harold Johnson, and Alex Viau. Oscar Luhkc is using plenty of energy to put the shot across Gill Field. And here we find Keith Mann all dressed up in his catcher’s uniform and all set to go. These arc the fellows who really flex their muscles on the parallel bars. Everett Stockinger, George Bryan, Bud Lutz, and LeRoy Ruetz pose for the camera. Mr. Miller, coach, puts the fellows back to work and . . . bang! They’re off! Good luck, boys! Some fellows feeling ambitious play tennis for pastime.

Susan Kinsey is “snapped” while orating in Civics class. . . . Our paper carriers on the Comet staff last semester were Floryan Oszuscik. Ruth Harbart. David Beck, Geraldine Gibron, Carolyn Krause, Inez Kinz, Betty Meer. James Baines. Constance Dcnnic, Gerald Freeland, and Robert White. . . . Snapped at one of the games we see Louis Stein ami Joe Carlisle “cutting up”, while Charles Wolff, John Powell, and Bob Mathias seem to find things a bit boring. . . Here our cameraman finds “a natural” of Bert Henry and Marjorie Farber. 60What have we here? A party? Anyway it’s part of Miss Sebcsta’s sponsor group last year. They look as though they’re having fun. Wish wc could join them! . . . Last summer these studes joined Mr. Wickham's class and learned how to drive a car. I’ll bet they had fun! . . . What on earth is this? It looks like a bread line, only it isn’t! It’s sign-up time, and these studes, no doubt, hope to get their favorite teacher. . . . Here’s the swing band at the Christmas mingler—“way back when” is more like it! . . . Some girls get all signed up with Mr. Buchanan. . . . Tell us the time when you see Martin Miller without Marion Vernick. They seem mighty interested. . . . Another Christmas party! This time it’s a riding party for the Girls’ League. They really had a grand time—so we hear. . . Two arms in a million. Here’s the “mob” at one of the games. That’s the good old school spirit! GlOut ojj tke (PaAt Well, well, well, what have we here? Eek! Don't say they're our sophisticated seniors! They must be, because here's Nell Andrest with a dog as big as she . . . and Kathryn Long taking her first walk? Natalie Johnson seems to have taken a liking to flowers at an early age, and Bill Westphal is looking the camera right in the eye. Phil Sprague has grown right up with his drums. How's it go, Phil? Well, Jeanne Scharnberg has grown up with masculine arms around her—from the looks of this! And Johnny Kramer used to play Indian in his backyard. Kaye Conde poses very prettily for her Elstonian picture. What's the matter, Leo; afraid that dog is going to get away from you? Albert Hil-berg with the padded knees, smiles for the camera. Melissa "editor-in-chief’ Luecht enjoys her bath at a tender age. Chuck "the pres" Vincent almost strangles his pooch. Say, Dick Gale, that's a nice pose. Sunning yourself? Dorothy Putz, with her dolly, is undecided whether to smile or not. Wayne “art Editor" Was-pi believes in showing his heels at a tender age, too. C2Cfa t to tkt (Pne ent Well, would you look at this! I think these "chiles" were in about 7-1 when they posed for this one. Most of them are still with us. See any you know? Let's see— Ruth Sieben must have planned to do some studying. Morris Miller seems to have been slightly on the plump side then, too! There’s our editor-in-chief. Recognize her? Would you look at Bob Lichtenberg and Loren Luecht along side Jeanne Scharnberg! Think of it! Our Senior president started young! He is peering over Betty Perham. 1 bet some of the girls wished they had a few of Albert Hilberg's curls. There's Spiro Danos, one of our football players! This is our 1939 prom picture. If some of you seniors want to find yourselves, use a magnifying glass (don’t be disappointed if you fail the first time). Our theme was Alaskan, and it really cooled us off that warm May evening! Some of the parents were in the balcony. Maybe you can find yours. Look hard!iJn-to tke On this page we’ll start at the top and circle around. . . . What’s this, love in bloom? Nope, just Melissa Luecht, editor-in-chief, and Wayne Waspi, art editor. . . . Continuing in the circle is the whole editorial staff. They are Don Bleck, activities editor; Albert Hilberg, senior class editor; Melissa Luecht, editor-in-chief; Nell Andrest, activities editor; Kathryn Long, factulty editor; Phyllis Kuhn, under-classmen editor; Alice Kuchik. girls’ sports editor; and John Kramer, boys’ sports editor. . . . Phil Sprague is caught in the act of taking a picture of the typists for the editorial staff. The girls are Dorothy Felske, Bernice Froehlke, and Dorothy Pawlik. . . . Next we find three industrious workers of the staff working away on page make-up. They are Wayne Waspi, Dorothy Putz, and Janice Schlaak. ... At the bottom of the page are Melissa Luecht and Dorothy Putz, sorting pictures for a snap-shot page. . . . There’s the year-books’ sales promoter, Pinocchio, and his originator, Martin Miller, business manager. . . . Next is pictured the business staff. They are Kaye Conde, Martin Miller, Bert Henry, Loren Luecht, Jeanne Scharn-berg, and Marjorie Hib- ner............Surprise! Charles Vincent didn’t expect this picture to be taken. The guilty guy is Wayne Waspi.S.crdon Committee We seniors really went to work in earnest this year. To prove it, here are the committees that functioned during the year. The first picture is the cap and gown committee with Bob White, Carl Swinehart, Virginia Stark, Regina Broil, Geraldine Stalbaum, and Louis Wheeler examining some sample caps and gowns. . . . Those on the advertising committee for the Elstonian are Frank Sprague, Bert Henry, Jacqueline Richmond, Kathryn Long, Rosalie Benowitz, Regina Broil, Gerhard Klouman, and Jack Kerrigan ... in the front row we find Marjorie Ziegler, Marjorie Farber, Shirley Dean, Blanche Stephens, Edna Keeler, Kaye Conde, and Sara Salmassy. . . . Here we find Donald Bleck with the play-reading committee: Bhyllis Kuhn, Ruth Harbart, Blanche Stephens, Sara Salmassy, Janice Schlaak, Frank Sprague, and Jane Harris. . . . The sound effects committee that worked on the senior play was composed of Charles Johnson, Richard Johnson, Howard Schultz, William Sherwood, Leroy Ruetz, and Morris Miller. . . . Those on the announcement committee were Natalie Johnson, Bhyllis Schudorick, Leo Gross, Marian Timm, Louis Wheeler, Bill Lueth, Marjorie Farber, Wayne Waspi, Charles Vincent, and Mr. MacDonald, the salesman. . . . The other half of the advertising committee is composed of Martin Miller, Albert Hilberg, Ralph Hirsch, Evelyn Rogowski, Betty Meer, Loren Luecht, Keith Law, and John Kramer. . . . front row: Eunice Grossman, Susan Kinsey, Adele Wolff, Marjorie Hibner, Mary Lois Scott, Violet Morton, and Jeanne Scharnberg. 65Sfcnion (Pfau Remember when the public said it couldn’t be done? Well, 1 guess we showed them. OUR TOWN turned out to be quite the thing. We were pleasantly surprised to find ourselves living through the living, loving, and dying of the Grover’s Corners people. Perhaps those tears you shed gave you a feeling you never had before. But, believe us. the cast and Miss Goldie Shepherd, director, were glad to give you that feeling. Everyone did his part to perfection. “Give us a pair.” “1 wanted a king, ami there it goes.” This is senior play practice. Mrs. Webb and Emily are stringing beans — supposedly. Don Bleck is adjusting the sound effects so that we don’t have a crow’s call coming out during tbe play. Tell them how to do it Miss Shepherd — or do they need telling? These two pictures are also from the play. The top one is the graveyard, the second the wedding.THE CAST ..................Stage Manager .......................Dr. Gibbs .......................Joe Crowell .................Howie Newsome ......................Mrs. Gibbs .....................Mrs. Webb ...................George Gibbs ...................Rebecca Gibbs .....................Wally Webb .....................Emily Webb .................Professor Willard ..................Mr. Webb Woman in the Balcony ..........Man in the Auditorium .................Lady in the Box ........Simon Stimson .........Mrs. Soames ...Constable Warren .......Si Crowell Sam Craig ...Joe Stoddard Baseball Players townspeople Melissa Luecht Marjorie Farber Luise Cox Wilmeth Bracken Ruth Harbart Ben Nygren George Bryan Rosalie Benowitz Ralph Hirsch Miriam Steinbom Eunice Tews Carl Swinehart Felice Kerrigan David Beck(Left Hand l’age) Abraham, Jessamine Louise Allgood, Lou Alice Allie, Frieda Anne Andrest, Nell Beatrice Baines, James Marrell Barnes, Elsie Katherine Baydowicz, Edward J.
