MICHIQANRITY, ma FOR THE YEAR l94O-ll-I 6 Training on Board Ship The founders of Michigan City came here in crucie boats, and ever since that time we have come to identify certain ships with Michigan Cityis harbor. Last year, came a ship possessed of as glamorous and adventur- ous a history as 2' vessel could boast. Because of its history, and because of its service here in our harbor, our 1941 Elstonian theme, TRAlNlNG, is based on the U. S. S. SACRAMENTO. All nautical pictures in this book were taken on or of this ship. The I94I ELSTONIANS salute to the U. S. S. SACRAMEN- TO is particularly timely because on November I0 she was again called to serve Linder her country's colors. She left our harbor a harren spot, but that spot is filled with memories of a gallant ship ready at a moments notice to answer her nation's call. 'Q .Q - ,QP , J c Qs. J-c Jas, J Q-cc?

Spreading terror among the Yangtze River pi- rates during many years of active service with the U. S. NaVy'S China patrol, she became known as "The Galloping Ghost of the China Coast." This year she was again called upon to enter active service in foreign ports. 6 l.et's Take a Lake Cruise Lake Michigan has a part in the life of every one of us. We are thrilled by its might in time of storm, and we are stirred deeply by its vast- ness ancl calmness in good weather. The lake has so many moods that it is always fascinating. But then we have not only the lake itself, but, because of it, an almost endless number of picturesque associations: the shore line with its clean "singing" sandg the dunes, massive and interesting phenomenag the fish tugs bringing in their catches-and gulls following, hungry for their evening mealg the beach on a summer afternoong the sight of white sails against the blue of the lakeg or a still, moonlit, summer night with beach fires making artificial stars in the night-all these pictures and pleasures are ours on these shores of Lake Michigan.

Our course may have needed many changes, but those changes have brought us to lands of new thought, We have reached the flrst landing in our voyage over the troubled S63 of life. U Miss Alina Schilf, Mr Knapp, Mrs. Ruth liyrl zy, and Mr. J. C. For . 1 -v""Xn- Mr. C. F. Humphrey They Chart Cur Course Although the students' contact with the administration is indirect, this group of officers controls the entire school system of our city, and has great responsibility in providing for the smooth running of our school. Few students are able to realize the tremendous problems with which the members of the school board are confronted, and the painstaking work and thought required to give the solutions which will best keep in mind the welfare of the school and com- munity. lVlr. Nl. L. Knapp. superintendent of schools, has shown his ability as a great school leader. llc is widely recognized and respected among educational leaders. lVlr. C. F. Humphrey, principal of the senior high school, constantly is working toward the welfare of the school. He is well-informed on current educational thought and is an ac- tive participant in the activities of secondary school principals. 10 W. C. Smith, Mr. M. l. Mr. M. I.. Knapp unfl Around the Decks A trip around our ship gives us a glimpse of several of the many phases of training offered on board. Stopping in front of the architectural drawing room, we see Mr. Delbert Miller with one of his classes. ln the background is a model house that the boys are plan- ning and constructing. Going on, we find the chemistry class under the supervision of Mr. I... W. Smith. Students gain a knowledge of facts by means of observation and thinking. Along the passageway, Miss Deane lVlcAfee's transcript class is trying to transcribe their "hen tracks" into neat, mailable letters. Below deck the art class can be seen sketching a model under the able super- vision of Mrs. Berne Wineman. Sketch- ing models is but a small part of the stu- dents' work. Learning values of colors and determining how to put them to their best use are some of the aims of the course. lfb - . K, H? ,,:4,.f?? 2 X " ,min '.,.v-,,:-.

These are what a sailor depends upon to follow his course. His compass gives him a di- rectional reading, lets him know if he's following a true line: a strong hand on the wheel helps him keep the ship on that line: and the barometer gives him warning of changes in the weather. 14 lx Qx Qx Qx Qx JXQX JXQX Qx rjx Qx A Qx lx Following the Course Many of us will realize our youthful dreams by following the course we chose when we entered school. Our teachers helped us pursue the objectives we set up as our goal. We now must go on alone, using the instruments we were taught to use while in training on our ship. 15 if N ni fr tllilss Uffivi-rs Alu' iur Class 0ll'icurs: Sriplioiiirmve Class Olfivvrs llzuilvl l'li-lu' llnrry Kiilsvy .lvnli Spivrs A U Nllrliiml Zim-p.1'lrr -lum' Mills lflnl'L'in'L' lxulllxislllslil ltutlx X11-,l'IR-r Wziltm-1' Sjolwi-pg lit-tty Krun-gvi' Sophomores Since we no longer have freshmen, the sophomores are really the "infants" now. They have to become acquainted with their ship and mates and adjust themselves to their new sur- roundings. However, the members of the Class of '43 adjusted themselves very readily and have had a successful start in their high school careers under the leadership of jean Spiers as president, Florence Komasinski as vice-president, and Betty Krueger as secretary-treasurer. Mrs. Toner and Coach Purvis are their sponsors. One happy memory of the sophomores is their Spanish party at which everyone had a gay old time with Ferdinand the Bull, toreadors, castanets, and Spanish dancers. You're off to a good start, so have patience, Class of '43-just two more years and you'll see land. Juniors For the juniors' second year aboard ship, they elected Harry Kinsey, presidentg Walter Sjoberg, vice-presidentg and June Mills, secretary-treasurer. Miss Schwabenland and Mr. Troyer were elected class sponsors. Enthusiastically, they sold candy at the football and basketball games. Under the direc- tion of Miss Mellie Luck, they successfully presented "Almost Eighteen." Money derived from these sources will be used for the prom. Almost any night one can see them sneaking into Room 303, and then locking the door as they leave. Mystery is written all over their faces and not a word is said concerning the theme of the prom, while patiently we seniors wait. 16 Senior Class History Ahoy matesl Yes, we've reached our goal at last-mighty Seniors. But the course was rough at times. Remember how little and unimportant we felt when we first boarded our ship in I937? Miss Emily Davidson and Mr. Andy Gill led us bewildered sailors and helped our first officers, Ruth Nuoffer. president, Roger I-lathoot, vice-presidentg and Gloria Fausch, secretary- treasurer, become acquainted with our quarters, What a relief it was to become Sophomores-we really amounted to something then. Norman Ziegler led us that year with the help of Howard Brooker as vice-president and Fred Pearce as secretary-treasurer. Miss David- son and Mr. Gill again acted as our sponsors. Remember at the Freshman welcome party when all the Freshmen had to kneel and repeat after Norman a vow to respect our wishes and then whaml they were initiated? Then all of a sudden two years of our voyage had passed and we were juniors. We elected new sponsors--Miss Deane McAfee and Mr. James Grif- fin. Our able officers for that year were Jim Dry, presidentg Ruth Nuoffer, vice- presidentg and Gordon Davis, secretary-treasurer. What a whirlwind year! We realized that we had very good salesmen in our midst when we counted our profits from selling candy at the football and basketball games. Again we proved our ability when selling tickets for the Junior Play. Using Mr. Miller's grand idea of canvassing the city, we had a record-breaking audience-and were we proud! Besides good salesmen, we had good drama- tists-twenty-nine in all for the cast of H320 College Avenue." Mr. Allen Buchanan, who sailed with us for only that year, coached the mystery play and was responsible for its success. All the money we scratched together was used to give the Seniors the time of their lives and one of their happiest memories from school. lnternational friendship was our theme for the prom. Remember the flags of all nations which were used for the backdrop of our play? and our play which included a Spanish dance, "Zwei l-lerzen," Skaters Waltz, French song and many others? And we can't forget to mention that we ate by the large lighted globes on each table flrranklin Street's old lightsl. Ah Memories--one after another pop upl Now we're Seniors. Norman Ziegler, presidentg Ruth Nuoffer, vice- presidentg and Dan Pliske, secretary-treasurer were elected to guide our last year's course. Miss Jeanette Murphy and Mr. Delbert Miller proved their able leadership and understanding of us. Miss Murphy was also adviser for this year's Elstonian. Many a night the same gang gathered together and scratched their heads for ideas, counted, and recounted subscriptions, mounted pictures, argued about this or that cover, etc. And never forget the courageous cast that presented "You Can't Take lt With You." Miss Ollie Gardner was the successful coach. A combination of screwy characters, including a mad Russian, a xylophone player, a toe dancer, the aristocratic Kirbys, etc. kept the audience in stitches. Yes, now our voyage has ended and we have to leave our ship and mates. No longer will we be known as Seniors, but we are now the "Class of '4l." kQx2x2xQx2xQx2x.2xQxQx2sQx.2xQx 17 V ifg Bud Albers ln if Frank Allie if James Allie Mary Allie John Ansell lidith Badkey Mary Anne Baird Juanita Bard Anna Mae Bates Norma Batzel Helen Jane Baugghman Marge Beahan Wallaee Beekman Daniel Bengston Ruth Bengston Betty Bentley lflileen Biddle Mildred Blaskey Stanley Block Eugene Blood George Bohle LaVonne Booner Luella Boonstra Christine Borane Howard Brooker Josephine Brown Richard Brown Jaek Bunton Oliver Burckhalter Bryant Burklow Dovie Burklow Jean Burnett Norman Bush Charles Carow Robert Cassidy Earl Cassler Rose Chalk Howard Clough Bonnie Jean Cooley Kathleen Couden Gladys Crawford Tommy Criswell Clarence Crozier Gene Daron Gordon Davis Carlyn Denson Walter Deutscher Jerry Devor William Drehmel, Jr. James Dry Norman Eckert Geraldine Eddy Ruth Edinger George Elias Max Engle Gloria Fausch Mary Feldmeier Rhoda Feltis Marjorie Fischer Jeanette Fladigor Lois Mae Dabbert James Ford Robert Foreman Alice Mae Fyhr ' Clair Gzisaway Lois Geiger Kenneth Glassman Rogert Glotf Aimee Jean Gloye Anita Gluck Marion Grossman Lucille Groth Harry Gutowski Warren Hageman Mildred Hagerty Virgil Hance Welton Hance Ruth Hanley Kathleen Harlachor Arlene Harman Jacquette Hart Madeline Hathoot Janet Herbert June Hermance Marion Hermance Bonnie Houser Evelyn Hunt Margaret Huryn Frank Hyer Betty Jacobsen PXLQXLAJJALJAAALALLA Robert Garver 1 Dorothy Jankowski Helen Jankowski i Irene Jankowski ' Robert Jaske Arnold Joers Ronald Joers Theodore Johnson Jeanette Jordan Marcella Kahn Michael Kalil Dorothy Kapica Leocadia Kapica Betty Kaser Arthur Keppen Robert Kienitz William Killingbeck Mary Lois Klue Dolores Kniola Bernard Koehne Florence Kohn Genevieve Koziolek Patricia Kramer Charlotte Krueger James Krueger Kenneth Krueger Jeanette Kruse Joseph Lakey Phyllis Lakin Viola Lakowski KQXQX A A Qx DQX JXQX JXDJX 21 E SI 'Y 3 'S ,J : ,z Q: Doris Lzxmlmku IEYLICK' Lznulis I12lVVI't'llC'L' Lnngv Joycv LZIVSUII lmlph IA'Hll2ll'll Churlottv I4CV0I'L'llZ IATl'I'llil10 Imvin Edwin Losinski Wzlrroll Luvv ll Lutv Iiaxymuml lXlcll1tyro Ilctty IXlcN0w Ilvnry Mzxckmvizlk IALll'iHl' Mzllvcki ' Blllllllillg' Waynv Mzxrquiss FFZIIIIC Martin Russvll Blurtin Mzxrtlm Mzltusz 'ard Mzxzurvk Paul INIQ-zuiuws lim-ith Ixl0llli0llh2lH livim-ss M1-ska Durutlmy Mvyvx' Donald Mcym-Vs Iwo AIICIIZIIIIQ llichzmi Dligm-r'y Iilva Millm' 22 Elvera Miller Lloyd Miller Marilyn Miller Wendell Leach William Miller Jack Milne Lorraine Mitchell Hamodie Mohamed Vera Murray Shirley Nallenweg Alex Nastofl' Genelle Neulieb Martin Nevorski Phillip Nowfel Ruth Nuoffer Irma Nygren Ralph Odle Betty Jeanne Olds Louis Olsen Dale Olson Roger Pagels Marie Pahl Mary Pahs LeRoy Palm Louise Parish Doris Parkhouse Donald Parret Leona Pawlik Frederick Pearce Pat Pekarski NQXQXJXJXJXQXJXJXQXJXJXJXJXJX 23 Riehard Peo W Marjorie Peterson , Grace Phelan l Edward l'iechnili Ilaniel l'liske Harold l'ollnow Pauline Powers Richard Precious William l'riebe Ralph l'rohl Louis Vrzybylinski Yvonne l'urvis Mary Jane Quinn Eugene Ragsdale Alan Ransom Marjorie Ransom f Edward Ratenski i George Reed Robert Reivher Herman Reichert Margery Rhoades Gloria Richter arion Ripley 45 6.

There are certain types of knots to use for cer- tain kinds of jobs, and they must be used as the occasion warrants it. They must be tiecl right-secured so they won't slip and so they can stand pres- sure. Ropes are important in a sailor's life in taughtening the sails, making se- cure various objects on the deck of the ship, and sometimes are even used as guides or life lines. 34 No stuclent's program is complete unless he participates in some kind of activity. Whether it is of major or minor importance constitutes no point, for so long as it brings him in closer contact with other people, it has accomplished its purpose. As the ropes are essentials in a sailor's life, activities are centers of interest and teach valuable cooperative work to the student. 35 Student Council The first-semester president was Hamodie Mohamed, the vice-president was Luella Roonstra, and the secretary was Margie Tiedeman. The second semester Carl Ulrich was presidentg Jeanette Kruse, vice-presidentg and Bud Albers, secretary. lVliss Mabel Engstrom is the sponsor of the organization. The members of the Student Council consist of representatives of each sponsor group of Iflston Senior High School. The Council regulates the system of monitors, discusses school problems, and suggests improvements. 011 Vlfednesday morning during the sponsor period, each representative makes his report to his sponsor group, after which the various items in the report are discussed by the group. Suggestions are then made to the representative for con- sideration at the next meeting. Standing committees are committee on ccmmittees, judicial committee, service commit- lee, and social committee. FIRST Sl'IMI'IS'l'I'IR: FIRST ROW: S. Dil'aola, D. Wright, M. A. Baird, J. Rerridge, M.

Scholarship, leadership, character, and service are the fundamental requirements for entrance into the National Honor Society. A student must be a senior or a second-semester junior. His scholastic ranking must be in the upper third of his class to be eligible for membership. The faculty elects the members on the basis of the other three requirements. Election to this society is one of the highest honors given by the school. To date there have been 303 elect- ed to the Isaac C. Elston chapter of the National Honor Society. This year twenty-four students from the upper classes were elected to this society and ini- tiated at the annual convocation on April 4. Norman Ziegler was in charge of the initiation ancl was assisted by Oliver Burckhalter, Keith Law, Ruth Nuoffer, jean Burnett, Gloria Fausch, and Pat Pekarski. Officers of the society are: Robert lVlcAlpine, presidentg Jacqueline Blanchard, vice-pres- ident, and Jocelyn Brieger, secretary. 5 . g 45, A11 if 4 ,A , 9 .

Miss Mellie Luck sponsors this organization, as well as the other dramatic group, Thespians. Students must tryout and are then voted on for Blackfriars membership. The club meets two Wednesdays a month. There is a program at each meeting, usually consisting of play reviews, dramatic history, and skits. john Thomas is president of Blackfriarsg Barbara Killingbeck, vice-president: and Jo Ann White, secretary. The Blackfriars and Thespians presented the Christmas play, "Las Posadasf' for the stu- dent body. Junior and Senior Commercial Clubs A group of ambitious and interested girls and boys, a desire to become efficient office workers, the result-The Commercial Club. This organization was formed early in the year by a group of commercial students with the desire to know what will be required of them when they enter the business world and to learn how to meet these requirements. A junior and a senior group was organized, each meeting separately. After several meetings the two were combined, for more could be ac- complished in a larger group. The meetings are carried on very informally, consisting of talks on personality, appear- ance, and some of the qualities every good office worker should possess. The spell-downs that were held not only provided a great deal of fun but also helped increase the girls' vocab- ularies and knowledge of spelling. The awards earned by students in commercial work are presented at the monthy meetings. Dorothy Kapica, president, Pat Pekarski, vice-presidentg and Irene Sass, secretaryg presid- ed over the meetings of the senior group. The officers of the junior group were Leola Gropp, president: Marcial Sherwood vice-president, and Dorothy Warnke, secretary. After the two groups were combined, Doris Ann Will was chairman in charge of entertainment. Thespians Thespians is a National dramatic society for High School dramatists. lts membership is never very large-usually about fifteen to twenty. This is because of the rigid requirements for membership. Each year a best Thespian is chosen from this group, and his or her name is mentioned in the Thespian magazine. This year Jean Burnett was elected as our best Thespian. She was awarded a free subscription to the "One Act Play Magazine." In December, the Thespians and Blackfriars presented the Christmas program. This year they presented a Mexican play, "Las Posadasf' During Drama Week, the society gave its an- nual convocation program, presenting a radio script entitled "The Late Mr. Scarface" and a one-act play, "Bargains in Cathay." Club officers are president, jean Burnett: tice-president, Gordon Davisg secretary, Geral- dine Speese. The Elstonian Last fall a group of energetic students volunteered their services to put out the "best ever" lflstonian. The staff was selected by the class officers and a committee of teachers. Because of a surplus fund left from our junior year, we decided to put out an Elstonian without selling advertising space or asking for donations. The book depended to a large extent upon the ingenuity of the staff in planning layouts. writing copy, and cutting pictures. ln the pictures below, we see a number of staff members at work, performing a few of the many activities that are connected with such a publication. Oliver Burckhalter and Bud Reed show us their picture-taking technique, while Miss Mur- phy looks over a sample cover. Luella, in her job as circulation manager, certainly was kept busy with her records of sub- scription payments. Here we see her cliscussng business matters with staff members Ruth Hanley, Jacquette Hart, jack Utley, Marion Sieb, Mary Allie, Everett Stockinger, Tommy Criswell. Making layouts and mounting pictures is Cne of the most difficult of jobs on the staff, but Ronald joers, Mary Jane Quinn, Ruth Nuoffer, and Norman Ziegler seem to be enjoying it. even if it is another one of those night sessions that follow a busy day. And in this picture we have none other than the eclitor-in-chief giving instructions to staff members Elva Miller, Jeanette Kruse, Phyllis Lakin, Gloria Fausch, jean Burnett, Marge Beahan, Pat Pekarski, Norman Bush, Marion Grossman, and Barbara Zeek.

Dahlites The Dahlites are the students who assist Miss Mildred Dahlberg, librarian and sponsor of the club, with her duties in the library. Each year the Dahlites entertain their mothers and members of the faculty at teas in the library during Book Week. Exhibits are arraiiged on the tables and are judged at this time. This year the girls who worked on the winning project were lrma Nygren, lVlarion Sieb, and Betty Jeanne Olds. The name of the their project was "The Child Travels Via Book Roads to Adulthood". It showed the various roads one takes during his life and how his life is in-- lluenced by the books he reads. ln December the club was entertained by the library assistants of the Laporte High School: thus they became acquainted with another library and the methods used there. Kathleen Couden is president of the organizationg Ruth Hanley, vice-president: and lVlar- ion Sieb, secretary. l"ltON'l' ROW: L. A. Shaw, C. Lever- vnz, l. Nygren, ll. J. Olds, li. l'lonei', J.

The members learn the habits of speaking accurately and distinctly and also how to breathe, phrase, and how to pro- duce a clear, pleasing tone. It also creates a love of poetry. This choir is open to all sopho- mores and juniors and meets once a week. The voice choir technique is of recent origin, and was first popularized by a college radio group only a few years ago. Amateur Radio League The Amateur Radio League was organized in November, I939. Requirements of the club are that each member of the club must be a student in our school and must be interested in radio work. The club meets every Thursday night after school in the electric shop, under the supervision of Mr. H. B. Long. LeRoy Ruetz, who organized the club, is also the club president. Club meetings consist of code practice, lectures, and demonstrations. During the course of this year the members visited the Michigan City police radio station and several other stations. Mingler "Going to the mingler?" "Sure I am. Didn't you know the mingler orchestra is playing?" "Boy, they sure are hot stuff!" Such is a typical conversation heard in the corridors of our school before the several jive sessions attended by Elstonites. The mingler orchestra, under the able direction of Palmer Myran, met every Tuesday evening for extensive practice on old and new swing music. Money for their music was ob- tained through slight charges at minglers, and donations by the P. T. A. and other organiza- tions which this grand group played for. Forum Club The Forum Club president for the first semester was Carolyn Krause, and the secretary was Alice Kuchik. Carolyn was the president the second term also, and Tommy Criswell served as secretary. If anyone desires some information on the current social and political problems, he should be sure to ask a member of the Forum Club. Suitable topics for discus- sion are selected by the program committee, and at each meeting two members discuss an as- signed topic. The club meets the first and third Wednesdays of each school month. The For- um Club is occasionally host to a speaker who is well informed on current events. This year the members enjoyed a Christmas banquet at the home of Florence Kohn. 5: A H' asian. 5 xv' N! 4 0 C ik in U. .I ,Q .Q 1 vu Y. Q X1 1 5 m- f KJ. I sw! ..

The club celebrates various holi- days with parties in a Latin manner. The year is brought to a close with a banquet in the cafeteria. Ants Club Started only a year ago the Arts Club has grown rapidly, which indicates that students have an interest in art. The purpose of the club is to further the appreciation of art and give members the chance for creative work. The members do not have to be students in any of the art classesg but anyone who thinks he would like to draw, model in clay, or work in any other medium is welcome to belong. The Arts Club, sponsored by Mrs. Berne Wineman, meets every Thursday in the art room. The officers for the first semester were: Dick Cully, presidentg James Last, vice-president: and Barbara Zeek, secretary.

William Sherwood was the busy chief and Mr. lrgang the faithful sponsor. Running, loitering, talking in groups, yelling and other such offenses are the numerous things the Hall Patrol members discourage in our halls. The Hall Patrol deserves much credit for the smoothness of traffic in our halls. Members are stationed at posts at regular intervals in, the halls. PersonaHty Club Under the sponsorship of Miss Dorothea Wolfe, the Personality Club was organized last fall. The aim is to help those girls interested in developing their personality through the study of this subject in its many phases. The girls participate at the meetings or secure some guest speaker. Playlets, some original, have been presented, and reports from books or maga- zines given. Officers for the year were: jean Burnett, president: Marian l-lermance, vice-president: and Marjorie Harris, secretary. Se-nio lfveryone likes a colorful uniform! This year our hand had new navy blue uniforms with red and white trim. ln addition they had several new drum majorettes in white dresses. We are very proud of the splendid things our hand has done under the excellent direction of Palmer lVlyran.

Six contestants out of eight entered in the Solo and lfnsemble Contest won state first divi- sion. Due to the very successful Tag Day the S0- loists and lfnsembles went to the National Contest at livlint, Michigan. On Fehruary 7 the hand gave its thirteenth an- nual concert with such numbers as "Scenes From the Sierra" and "The World ls Waiting For the Sunrise." The hand gave a convocation April 24 and pre- sented Uffowhoy Rhapsody." a very modern numher. Another well-received number was thc Hlflight Command March." On October 4, l940, at the St. lVlary's football game at Ames Field, a patriotic performance was put on hy the Senior and junior High Bands, Girls of the Senior Glee Club, American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, and Girl and Boy Scouts.

A great deal of excitement is caused upon the arrival of an American yacht- ing party. The ruler, Duke of Beaujolais, with his betrothed, the Countess Marie, cordially welcomes the visitors and arranges a garden party in their honor. The Americans all succumb to the na- tives' charm. Complications follow as several of the characters change partners. They decide to mas- querade at the garden party. This results in more confusion as far as romantic interests are concerned. Each one is finally convinced that his original partner was the best. All is for- given, and the story ends in the best of good feeling. 51 Penny Sycam Paul Sycamore Grandpa .,,.

M. C. A. in the early part of a Monday or Wednesday evening during school, you would probably meet some energetic, sturdy high school lads going to their Hi-Y meetings. At 7:l5 on Monday and Wednesday nights the fall of the gavel commands silence for the opening of the Berea and Elston Hi-Y Chapters' meetings. This organization follows a program of general improvement, physically and mentally. The purpose of the organization is: "To create, maintain, and extend throughout the schools and community high standards of Christian character." The program for the year includes preparing Thanksgiving baskets for the needy, playing Santa Claus to some unfortunate little boys, sponsoring the annual marble tournament for pri- mary school students, and sending representatives to the various Hi-Y conferences and camps. The officers of the Berea 'Chapter are as follows: Kenneth Bartels, president, James Flem- ing, vice-presidentg Leo Boyan, secretary-treasurer, Kenneth Hyer, sergeant-at-armsg and Kendrick Cannon, chaplain. The Elston Chapter has for its officers: Dana Hennessy, presi- dentg William Samuels, vice-presidentg Charles Clinton, secretary-treasurer, Earle Barth, ser- geant-at-armsg and Francis Vulpitta, chaplain. The faculty advisers of the two groups are George lrgang, Berea Chapter and Fred Krueger, Elston Chapter. ' Discussion League The subject of Trade Barriers was discussed by the Discussion League this year. This or-- ganization is under the direction of Mr. Russell jenkins. At the League convocation, the winners were: Germaine Spychalski, Bill Harlan and Evelyn Hunt. They were awarded the cash prizes donated by Mr. lsaac C. Elston Jr., the grandson of Major Elston, after whom the school is named. Germaine also won the district contest and was therefore allowed to participate in the state contest at Bloomington. Quill and Scroll The highest honor which can be bestowed upon a high school journalist is election to the Quill and Scroll. To become a member a student must have a "B" average in his grades, do outstanding work on the school paper, and have his work approved by the faculty adviser and the Medill School of journalism at Northwestern University. T he main purpose of the organization is to develop a greater interest in high school jour- nalism and heighten the standards of this profession. The Michigan City chapter of this Society was organized in I935, and under the spon- sorship of Miss Gardner, its membership has constantly grown. Those eligible for admittance this year were initiated at the annual press banquet held in the cafeteria last fall. - . A sailor's life is varied and active. Keeping fit is a very essential part ol' his training, so he engages in a variety of sports on board ship. The life he leads requires alertness, energy, and good sportsmanship -- qualities devel- oped intensely through participation in sports. I 56 'X QXQX Qx Qxdfx QxQxQx Qx Qx QXQXQXQX Keeping Fit Our students, to get the energy and alertness they require, engage in many sports. Our football team attracts many boys whose bodies and mincls are built up through this hardy game. Basketball, a fast game, builds up a person's ability to meet, at a moment's notice, any action that requires speed and mental work. Track, soccer, hockey, and baseball are popular with both boys and girls. Students demand the healthful exercise that is given them in gym classes. Those who take part in any of these sports develop strong, able bodies, as well as mental alertness, and good sportsmanship. 57 ll Nl I in ul, li ll.ii-iii, lt.Nlrlii1vri.

With a line averaging one hundred and sixty-seven pounds and a loackfield of only one hundred and fifty, he had to depend on speed and deception. Because of traditional first-game jittcrs, the Demons dropped their opener to Rensselaefs well-seasoned squad, l9-6. The following week a reorganized squad, playing their first conference game, trounced the determined Goshen Redskins, I3-7. After a mid-season slump against the heavier and more experienced South Bend teams. the Purvismen met the Elkhart Blue Blazers under the klieg-lights of Ames Field. Outfighting a superior team, weight averaging twenty-five to thirty pounds heavier, the Devils won a moral victory hy lying the highly-rated Elkhart term, 7-7. Although the team's season did not appear highly successful, the Purvismen shone bright- ly against teams of their own caliber. 58 if :inning , . ,H , A ..,, , !-' FZ Ns S Q, S? , f i 'K W. 1 fx P X N . yr , a ,l M- ' lk lf M ,,m. , ' . - f A E , haf, .. . bf- A . .

Football managers, Ray Flood and Louis Tadros. are seen reconditioning Devil football equipment for the next game. All football helmets were re- painted each week by these boys. Looking for an opportunity to carry in the water bucket, Dick Hyer, basket- ball manager. shows obvious anxiety over the teamis outcome although Wal- lace Beckman, Warren Luce, and Dick Spychalski, do not appear worried. fx Qx Qxekjx ,Jx Qxo ,Jx ,fx ,XX ,Dx A The Crowd Roars Fight team fight! Fight team fight! jubilant yells still reverberate and re-echo across the hardwood floor of the Michigan City Auditorfum. The strains of "Oh, yes, we're here to cheer you . . can be heard in the distance. Pep and spirit leap forth from every corner and portal. It was crowds such as these that out-yelled Laporte and St. Marys. The spec- tacular floor play of the Ellismen brought forth crowds unprecedented in Devil history. Tem- porary bleachers remained standing throughout most of the season. Through thick and thin. ups and downs, Devil fans remained faithful to keep the Auditorium seats overflowing. De- mon followers wound up the season with a one-fourth attendance increase and a large boost in the sale of throat gargle. 61 ,XLWEEQ KR , I ,I .. x 1 -, r I2 U?

A double foul was calledQ Harry Frey of North Judson as he drives un- der the basket for a Blue Jay bucket. The Blue Jays were beaten for the second win of the season. Basketball Seen on the hardwood floor of the Auditorium this year was one of the best Red Devil squads as yet produced by Coach Loren Ellis. The Devils piled up a magnificent record of seventeen wins and five losses. On November 22 the Red Devils outplayed Brook 42 to 30 to start the season off with a bang. The second game, played on November 29 against Brazil resulted in a Crimson victory--Devils 42, Brazil 24. The following week the demons swooped down on North Judson, beating the Blue Jays 45 to 27. ln the next two games City was the victor, but the Devils finally met their Waterloo in Laporte. The boys went in fighting, but just didn't have the punch. The result was LaPorte 25, Michigan City 2l. ln the Goshen game the Red Devils were again defeated, but by the close score of I9-I7. One more game was won from John Adams of South Bend, but fol- lowing this victory Washington of South Bend swamped the Devils 58-30. The Ellismen ran over their next four opponentsg the last, against South Bend Central, was the hardest fought and most exciting game of the season. The Demons appeared to be midgets compared to the Central giants. Central got off to an easy start and led all of the first half. During the third quarter the Crimson turned on a burst of speed to outplay and out- score the Bears 'til their tongues, literally speaking, dragged on the floor. From then on Central was in a dazed condition. The net score ended. City 49, Central 43. The Red Devils again met Laporte and lost 4l-28 and finished the season by taking the last four games. Michigan City's greatest triumph and most heart-breaking loss oc- curred at the Laporte Sectional. Coach Ellis repeated his Central victory by skinning the Slicers, 39-34. Tired out by the afternoon's game, the Devils dropped the closing game to the Rolling Prairie Blue Blazers, 37-31. as 1 " 1 f Q 4 F T 9. 1 KN 'ng-' kj Q M ' ' Q., it E Y L I ' 1 , ,W 4 A , L.

As was the case with most Michigan City athletic teams, Coach Delbert Miller had to re-- organize his track team from an inexperienced squad of Seniors, Juniors.. and Sophomores. The squad got off to a flying start by a tri- angular meet with Chesterton and North Jud- son. The team is expected to exceed a .600 average. Stellar devil trackmen, Glen Schultz, Mitch Faroh, Marvin Nast, and Eugene Stoligrosz, were caught by Elston's roving cameramen while practicing spurt starts. They are being aided by manager Dwight Miller who is hold- ing the starting gun. BASEBALL Lou Tylisz, star devil sidewinder, accounted for all conference wins of last season, and has already supplemented his former record by winning three consecutive conference games. This will undoubtedly result in Michigan City's winning the conference championship. Teammates, Bud Miller, R. Whitlow, and Kenneth Glassman look on as diminutive Wal- lace Beckman prepares to swat a home run over the outfield fence.

The members of this year's team are Arnold and Ronald joers, Lawrence Tanber, and Sam DiPaolo. GYM CLASSES During each day in the gym classes, boys participate in various activities such as lumb- ling, boxing, basketball, football, baseball, wrestling and working on parallel bars. TRACK Richard Mignery is caught putting the shot. Girls' Athletic Association The Girls Athletic Association is open to all girls in high school. lts purpose is to cle- velop goocl health and promote school spirit. For every game of baseball, basketball, volleyball, hockey, or deck tennis in which the girls take part, they receive five points. This point system not only rewards the athletic type. but is an attempt to interest girls in all-rouncl development and to encourage every girl in many types of activities. At the encl of the season the girls meet and vote for the girl they think is the best athlete. The girl receiving the most votes is awarded a sweater at the annual school award assembly. The girls on the winning teams and the girls with the highest points receive chenille letters at this awarcl assembly. I . i WINNING SOCCER TEAM OND ROW: M. Esper, E. Sadene water, V. Arndt, and J.

SEC- 7 i At the beginning of the tournament season the girls meet and elect as many captains as they want teams. When the captains have been elected, they are given a team number such as Team l, Team 2, etc. After they have been given their number they line up according to teams and choose the girls they want on their team, one at a time. After the teams have been organized, they play their first game of the tournament. After every team has played every other team in this tourney, the team winning the most games is automatically the winner and is awarded a small emblem at the award assembly. The same plan is followed for each game. The only thing that is different is the girls choose new captains and the captains choose new teams for each different type of game that is played during the year. G. A. A. FRONT ROXY: I.

Every day the sailor meets new occasions when a storm or other hazard threatens the smooth sail- ing of his ship, ancl keeps him on the watch for a light by which he can fol- low his course. 68 ln everyone's life there are small events or incidents that stand out like beacons in the darkness. Some of them proved of importance on our courseg others that seemed important to us at the time were mere passing fancies. Each event brought us new experiences and taught us to sail through stormy weather as well as favorable. 69 Senior Activities Bud Albers: Hi-Y 2, 3, 4, Secy. Student Council 4.
