Text from Pages 1 - 128 of the 1946 volume:

Foreword The staff of the 1946 ELSTONIAN decided to carry out the theme of International Friendship, and what could be more fitting than to use the International Friendship Gardens located in Michigan City as the basis? Of the suggestions made to further the theme, the favored one was to ask a school in each of various foreign countries to send us a letter, perhaps written by a student, and photographs depicting the school life. The letters and photographs which you see on the following pages are the replies we have received. Read carefully the contents of the letters, for only by knowing and understanding the ways of life of the school youth in foreign nations can we lay a true foundation for international friendship.ar avion tu lpo,.PRESENTS THE Yearbook of the Isaac C. Elston Senior High School Michigan City, Indiana Under Business Management of June Fenton Supervised by Miss Goldie Shepherd Edited by Luise ZieglerOur Polish Friends thin racki Danuta Pi, % 4A Day at Michigan City Senior High School The war is over, and in a world at peace once again a new day has dawned. It is Monday morning, and the students of the Michigan City Senior High School are wending their way to the spacious school building at the corner of Detroit and Lafayette Streets. It would seem that all streets, avenues, and thoroughfares lead to Isaac C. Elston High School. Here are youth, engaged in the art of learning to fit themselves to meet the high standard of American life. The students may choose whatever course they wish to pursue. Commercial, Vocational, General, and Academic are the courses that are offered. With these there is also the course in Fine Arts, that is open to anyone sufficiently interested to put forth the effort to attend a 7:30 A. M. class. The students have learned that adjustments are not easy to make but that they can be made, and so all through the day one finds these boys and girls going from class to class, adapting themselves to their strict schedules. There are six periods through the school day. At fifty-five-minute intervals the bells sound, and immediately there is a parade of eager students, changing from room to room. In this parade one finds the couples, the bookworms, the nonchalants, and the aggressives—all making their way to another classroom for the purpose of further enlightenment. Three o'clock — an exodus of students, some leaving for home, others to find their way into the business world. Four o’clock — regular hour for closing — Students have been guided capably by the teaching staff and leave the building reluctantly (we hope). Inspired with faith in their endeavors, they feel that tomorrow will be another day and that they will put more perseverance into their study, in the belief that eventually they will triumph in their chosen work. Five o’clock — the last of the students leave: these are the ones who have attended meetings or worked on the various class activities. Michigan City High is a lonely spot; students, after a real day’s labor over books and school problems, have gone home. Here they are greatly refreshed and ready for what the evening may bring. 5Isaac C. Elston High School Our school, located in the heart of Michigan City, stands as a memorial to Isaac C. Elston, one of the first settlers in Michigan City. Here are the three buildings: senior high, junior high, and the beautiful new auditorium, and immediately behind the buildings is Gill Field, where the various sports are carried on. Here we, the graduating class of 1946, have always felt that we entered these buildings to learn and that we will g° out ’nto worlcl to serve. 6Greek Garden AdministrationI he Board of Education, whose duties might be compared with those of the Board of the Gardens, plans and directs the development of all of the public schools of Michigan City. Chief overseer is Mr. Phil Calahan, ably assisted by Secretary Charles R. Radey and Treasurer W. C. Smith. Miss Alma Schilf Miss Alma Schilf, as financial secretary to the Board of School Trustees, is responsible for all the bookkeeping of our estate. Sharing this responsibility i s Assistant Secretary Jeanette Schlunz. 8 Y Miss Jeanette SchlunzThe landscape architect of our estate, Mr. M. L. Knapp, prepares the blueprints which all of Michigan City's public schools follow. We seldom see Mr. Knapp in the senior higb school, but we realize that he is interested in everything we do. Supt. M. L. Knapp Miss Lois Johnson, secretary to Architect Knapp, is kept busy arranging supplies for the grade schools and checking attendance reports, not to mention the numerous tasks of general office work. 9 Miss Lois JohnsonDr. Nelle Cole Reed The medical branch of Michigan City’s public schools is located in our high school, with Dr. Nelle Cole Reed and Nurse Ruth Kemena in charge. The doctor’s office is open for high school students part of the morning; the remainder of the day Dr. Reed and Miss Kemena are checking up on the health of the grade school students. It is reassuring to know that their vigilance against sickness never ends. “Please excuse . . . absence due to . . "permission to work . . are but a few examples of what our attendance officer, Mrs. Anna B. Weaver, has to check every day. It is up to Mrs. Weaver to issue working permits to the students, sign the senior high excuses, and check on the absentees of all schools in the city. After twenty-one years of efficient service, Mrs. Weaver retires at the close of this year. Thank you, Mrs. Weaver, for your excellent work. We wish you health and happiness as you leave us. 10 Mrs. Anna B. WeaverThe official guide on our tour through four years of high school is Principal Cecil F. Humphrey. To Principal Humphrey goes our profound appreciation for his constant wise guidance in all of our high school activities. Without excellent leadership, such as Principal Humphrey has given us. our years in high school would not have been so profitable and pleasant. Prin. C. F. Humphrey Mrs. Martha Weisflog, Principal H u m p h r e y’s efficient secretary, deserves all our respect. Her kindly attitude toward all of us and her willingness to serve us in every capacity assured us that we were her friends. Her many tasks kept her very busy, and yet she was ever willing to answer our whims, and always with kindness. 11 Mrs. WeisflogFaculty M iss Martha Bateman Miss Mildred Dahlberg Mrs. Frances Dobeski Miss Mabel Engstrom Mr. James Griffin Mrs. Grace Hart Miss Bernice Henry Mr. Ivan Horn Mr. George Irgang Mrs. Florence Kelly Mr. Harry Long Miss Mellie Luck Mrs. Bernice Mann Mr. Sheldon Maxey Miss Frances McConkey Mr. Delbert Miller 12Faculty Mrs. Vera Murray Mr. Palmer Myran Mr. Frank Neff Mr. James Nicholas Mr. Arthur Parsons Miss Geraldine Relander Mr. Riley Schaeffer M iss Frances Sebesta Mr. Ralph Sellers M iss Goldie Shepherd Mr. Lester Smith M iss Leona Stuart Mr. Henry Ten Harkel Mr. Russell Troyer Mrs. Agnes Wickham M iss Dorothea Wolfe 13 No pictures for: Miss Ann Molzen Mr. Harold Wegner"Balling” Out the Teachers 1.

We thought you Bight alao weleoae aoae pictures other than Juat aoae anap ahota aa they might be of some use to you In visualizing our aohool. The naae of our aohool la "The Ankara High Sohool for Girls . It vaa atarted by the Department of Education in 1923 ae a day aohool. There are elx gradee In the aohool, the work in the first three being preliminary to High Sohool work. The work in aohool begins at 6:00 A.X. and ends at 1:00 P.M. during whioh tiae we have five periods. At 1:00 P.M. there la a break of an hour and a half for lunoh and recreation. Froa 2:30 until 4:00 there le a long etudy period in whioh we study our lwasons for the next day. We have 732 students in sohool. Our olaasea are very large. For this reason each class la divided into aany sootlons. In the senior class the students ohoose either the acadealo or the eolenoe oouree. The girls in the aoadealo course are chiefly Interested In literature, history, philosophy and loglo. They also study aatheaatloa, physios, ohealatry and biology--though fewer hours of theaa science subjeots than in the other course. I like mostly eolenoe subjeots so I aa taking the eolenoe oouree. In order to be a graduate of the high school the pupils In each course are obliged to take oral and written examinations at the end'of the year. Every student has to take one of the three languages; English, French or Owraan. This year in the first grade of the high aohool there la a Latin oourae. We have 59 teachers In sohool. They are all Turkish and exoept our military training teaohers and a few others they are all woaon. Our dlreotor also is a woman. As we believe suoh a oorrespondenoe to be the surest way to a happy mutual understanding between the students of different countries, aay we ask you to ask a student to write to us about the life and interests in your schools.

This was the theme of our Sophomore Party. The title alone shows that everyone had a "gay'' time. It wasn't compulsory to come in a costume like those worn way back in “them thar days.” but the majority did. The class was guided by Norman Pec-kat, president; Alex Schultz, vice-president; and Howard Spicer, secretary. They very ably brought us through the year with flying colors. Miss Henry and Mr. Sellers, as our sponsors, saw us through many school activities. 1945! This was the year when we as juniors presented "Spring Green." The leads were played by Virginia Kay and James Nicholas. At the beginning of the school year Norm Peckat was elected to serve as our president; Wilbert Green, vice-president; and Raymond Schnick, secretary. Norm left for the service in April, and "Red” Green was elected to take his place as president. Charles Cook filled in the hole of vice-president very nicely. Our guidance teachers for this year were Miss Schwabenland and Mr. Sellers. It has always been the custom for the juniors to give a prom for the seniors. This year was to be no exception, and the theme used was “The Cruise of the Em Cee." Finally '46 rolled around, representing the last high school year for our class and for the majority, the last school year. Many of the boys would be leaving for service, a fact which meant that the year slipped by too quickly. In the fall Charles Cook was chosen to lead us as president; David Lau was elected as vice-president; and Carol Stephenson, secretary. Mrs. Murray and Mr. Maxey, who were selected as our sponsors, helped us in every way that they could, and consequently we were able to put forth all of our ability (?) and come through, right side up. "Blithe Spirit" was the title of the play which we as seniors gave. Virginia Kay and Phil Pahl had the leads. Class day was presented on May 24. The evening of May 24 was spent by many of us at the Junior Prom, which was given for “us." May 26 was the day for Baccalaureate. Our speaker for Commencement was Dr. James W. Clarke.

The teachers who advised and worked with the juniors were Miss Wolfe and Mr. Horn. One group of juniors worked tirelessly at all games, selling Coca-Cola, candy, ice-cream bars, and popcorn. Hot dogs were the added attraction at the Sectionals. Junior Miss, a hilarious three-act play, was given by the Class. Miss Mellie Luck directed the play. Early in the year whispers concerning the Junior Prom were heard. This annual event attracted many juniors and seniors. The juniors have made a fine record. We wish them the best of everything for 1946-47. 34 Mr. Horn Miss WolfeJunior Play After several postponements because of the “flu" germ, the Junior Class presented its annual play on November 21.

The sponsors were Mrs. Mann and Mr. Griffin. The Class chose "Harvest Moon" as the theme of the annual Sophomore Party. The main attraction of the party was the crowning of Janet Rudolph as the queen of "Harvest Moon.” Mr. Griffin As all things must come to an end, this biggest event in the lives of the sophomores finally came to a close. Loads of luck to you, sophomores, as you join the higher rank of juniors. 40 Mrs. MannMrs. Berne VVineman: 10-2 First Row: Vera Jones, Shirley Gust, Delores Zccsc.

The Dahlites’ main activity of the year is their celebration of National Book Week, and this year was no exception. During Book Week the girls entertained their mothers and the faculty at their annual Book Week tea. The girls divided into groups to make seven clever displays for the library. The theme around which all displays revolved was “United through Books." The displays, which were put up and judged on Monday, were left up all week for students and visitors to view. The winning exhibit was made by Joyce Delaney, Carol Stephenson, and Emma Lou Wolfe. The girls constructed a miniature Capitol building with exact proportions of the original. Surrounding the building was sawdust, dyed green to represent grass. On it were placed platforms, holding figures representing different professions. 62Da h I i tes First Row: Marianne Kickush, Emma Lou Wolfe, Carol Stephenson, Barbara Samuelson, Miss Dahl-berg, Corinne Lutz, Thelma Larson, Barbara Olsen, Betty Hitt, Wilma Schumacher.

They also supported the teams at home and out-of-town games, sponsored dances after the games, and honored the football and basketball teams at parties. Mrs. Wickham sponsors this club, which is open to all high school students. 70ATHLETICS Polish WalkFootball — 1945 Michigan City opened its 1945 football season on September 2 1 by holding a strong Benton Harbor eleven to a 0-0 tie. The Red Devils drove three times within the thirty-five-yard line but failed to score. Fran Nespo’s and Ted Marston's skirting the ends led City’s attack. After this game Nespo was afflicted with infantile paralysis, which kept him from playing for the remainder of the season. Michigan City’s next two games, with the Goshen Redskins on September 28 and the Elkhart Blue Blazers on October 5, were canceled because of the polio epidemic in LaPorte County. Our initial home game of the season, with the Central Bears of South Bend on October 12, ended in a rout, with the Bears out in front, 40-6. They ran and passed all over the field to subdue a fighting but green Red Devil band. Ray Schnick scored the Devils’ only touchdown when he intercepted one of Central’s passes onthe fifty-yard line and went the distance to score. Wilson’s conversion was wide..

In 1 945, Willard Louis Wheeler, president of the Electro-Matic Engraving Company brought about an innovation in photo-engraving . . . The Electro-Matic Infra-red Burn-in Oven. This new process, instead of frying the plate, bakes it "in,” leaving a finer, more life like illustration on copper to give you the better quality which this invention affords. This oven is accepted nationally for its excellence and acclaimed as the best development in photo-engraving in a decade. It was used along with all our other modern equipment in the Electro-Matic plant in the production of the fine photoengravings in your yearbook. You can be sure of intelligence in handling of yearbook problems, and the ultimate in reproductive values at Electro-Matic. We’re cookin’ with Infra-red!
