 Outward Bound  • The Senior Class presents THE 1947 ELSTOIUN YEARBOOK OF THE ISAAC C. ELSTON SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL MICHIGAN CITY, INDIANA Editor - in - chief: Donald Allison Business Manager: Stuart Brolly Supervised by: M iss Goldie ShepherdIntroduction “How do you do; my name is Smokey. Although you had never seen Cindy and me until you turned the preceding page, we have, nevertheless, been around here, watching you people at work for a long time. Cindy and 1 met in Chicago a few years ago, and we both decided that it would be interesting to see what boys and girls were doing in high school these days. A Michigan Central engine — the one on this page, by the way — overheard our conversation and suggested that we come down here to visit the Isaac C. Elston High School in Michigan City. “We enjoyed our first visit so much that we agreed then and there to come back as often as we could. The war upset many of our plans, and we couldn't come so often as we would have liked to. There was many a time when 1 was on the road twenty-four hours; and my days off, few and far between as they were, had to be spent in resting and undergoing repairs. “Cindy fared little better. 1 remember limping into the terminal late one night with a burned-out connecting rod bearing. My rod hurt so much that 1 paid little attention to the other locomotives near the round house, and when 1 was hailed by the soot-stained engine w ith the oil spattered wheels which stood on the next track, I could hardly believe my ears. Yes, it was Cindy.” “If I dare say, Smokey, there were times during the war when your appearance was nothing about which to toot your whistle, but 1 really interrupted to offer an explanation. You readers may wonder w'hy Smokey and I can talk, but an engine would have to be pretty empty between the marker lights to have spent as much time in high school as we have and not to have learned anything.” “All right. Cindy, let me finish what I have to say. Our readers may be interested in why the staff chose a railroad theme for the ELSTONIAN this year. Well it’s our idea. Cindy’s and mine. We are both very proud of the railroads, and while talking with the editor-in-chief one day last spring, we must have let our enthusiasm get a little out of hand, because before we could say New York. Susquehanna. and Western, his mind and pencil were going like the Super Chief. He presented the idea to the staff, and this book is the result. They hope that you like it. “Like anything which plays an essential part in our everyday lives, the railroad is taken for granted. We cannot possibly imagine an America or a world without railroads. Much of that which made our nation great is the sweat, smoke, steel, and steam of the railroad industry. “It took the thin iron rails of the Union Pacific, Great Northern, Baltimore and Ohio, Newr York Central, Santa Fe, and many others to link successfully and permanently the East and West, thus uniting these U nited States. Today the life blood of this nation pulses swiftly, twenty-four hours a day, over a vast network of steel behind the staccato bark of steam locomotives, the guttural thunder of diesels, and the smooth, quiet murmur of electric power. “Here I am giving you the same lecture I gave the editor last spring, but it’s the truth, and I am sincere in every word I have said. Come on, Cindy, let’s highball. We have a lot of track to cover!” The staff wishes to express its appreciation to the Illinois Central System, the Southern Pacific Lines, and the Chicago, South Shore and South Bend Railroad for the excellent cooperation which made possible many of the photographic reproductions in this book. The Southern Pacific supplied the half-title color plate; the Illinois Central, the photographs on pages three, seven, seventeen, fifty-one, seventy-five, and ninety-three; and the South Shore, the illustration on page one hundred-five. — 4Within These Portals These doors are quite familiar to the average hoy and girl of Michigan City, as is the case with anything which one encounters several times a day for the better part of three years. Much happens in that surprisingly short period of time between one’s first bewildering entry into the high school through these doors and that day when they swing shut behind one for the last time, thus concluding a very pleasant chapter in one’s life. The many experiences encountered during one’s high school days, some of which will be recalled with greater pleasure than others, are mellowed by the passing of time, and the senior walking out to Detroit Street for the last time usually finds his eyes growing just a little dim with nostalgia. The front doors of the high school are like the opening of a kaleidoscope, in which is revealed hundreds of colorful, ever-changing experiences. There is no finer way to start the day off right than by walking toward the building on a bright and warm April morning, with the voices of the glee club members wafting from open windows and the cottonwoods on the lawn looking as if someone had impishly dusted them with snow during the night. Think of all the smells which we have come to associate with the high school: the tempting odors which float up from the cafeteria at that time of the morning when the hands of the clock appear as if they will never reach 11:45; the penetrating smell of paint and varnish which permeates the building on the first day of school; the savory, unmistakable odor of the Junior Class s pop corn which finds its way to the building from the new auditorium the afternoon before a basketball game; and last, hut certainly not least, those indescribable stenchs produced by chemistry students. If their proficiency in the field of chemistry is equal to the power, variety, and penetrating quality of the odors which they induce with so little apparent effort, we have a number of potential chemical engineers in our midst. Day-to-day school affairs are occasionally brightened, perhaps merely by a convocation or a pep session. Speculation is rampant whenever a social event approaches. "Who’s going with who?” is the all-important question. The atmosphere is electric with ever-increasing expectancy the week before that day marked in red on any upper classman’s calendar — the Junior Class Prom. There are times, like report card or exam days, when the prevailing atmosphere is one of restlessness and uneasiness. Then, despite the frequency with which they are received, one always experiences a hard, cold, rather shocking blow in the stomach, accompanied by the thought “Now' what have I done?” on being presented one of those small slips of paper requesting the recipient’s presence in the office of C. F. Humphrey AT ONCE! The business of learning is hard work, regardless of whether you are a commercial, a vocational, or an academic student; but if we had to, we wouldn’t mind doing it again, because we enjoyed every — well, almost every minute of it! — 5 —The Isaac C. Elston Senior High SchoolADMINISTRATIONBoard of Education Mr. Chas. R. Radey Mrs. Ruth Rydzy Mr. Phil Calahan By the use of a little imagination we can associate the people in our school administrative offices with railroad officials. The Board of Education is in many ways like the Board of Trustees of some great, far-reaching rail system. Although relations between the students and the Board are indirect, the activities of this group have an important bearing upon the well-being of the entire student body. Meetings of the Board are held on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month with Mr. Chas. R. Radey presiding as president, Mr. Phil Calahan acting as treasurer, and Mrs. Ruth Rydzy, as secretary. The primary duty of this group is to determine the policy of the Michigan City public schools. As financial secretary to the Board of Education, Miss Alma Schilf must not only attend all Board meetings but is responsible for school employee payrolls, financial reports, insurance records for school property, new auditorium rental fees, and the handling of pensions as well. Assistant Secretary Jeanette Schlunz has numerous bookkeeping, filing, and record-maintenance duties in addition to her regular stenographic work. — R — Miss Alma Schilf Miss Jeanette SchlunzMr. M. L. Knapp, superintendent of schools, is responsible for the smooth, efficient, and coordinated operation of the entire school system. When not kept at his desk by administrative duties, Mr. Knapp can be found visiting the various public schools of the city. We of the student body are aware of his competent supervision and are conscious of the fact that our best interests are always foremost in his mind. Mr. M. I.. Knapp Mr. Knapp has the able secretarial assistance of Miss Lois Johnson. Besides her work as a secretary, Miss Johnson must check attendance data and supervise the distribution of grade school supplies. — 9 — Miss Lois JohnsonDr. Nelle C. Reed Nurse Ruth Kemena Armed with hypodermic syringes, vials of vaccine, a hearing tester, and various other medical paraphernalia. Dr. Nelle C. Reed and Nurse Ruth Kemena go quietly and efficiently about the work of promoting good health among the students of the public schools of the city. Dr. Reed's “shingle hangs above a door on the second floor of the high school, and it is here that the doctor and nurse “hold office” during the early part of the morning. Dr. Reed and Nurse Kemena spend the remainder of the day making their rounds of the grade schools. We welcome a new member of the administrative body to our building - Mr. Warren Jones, who succeeds, as attendance officer, Mrs. Anna B. Weaver, who retired last year. Mr. Jones is interested if a student works, and doubly interested if and why one doesn’t - - in school, anyway. He issues working permits to students seeking part-time employment and also keeps an eye on the chronic absentees of the public schools. — 10 — Mr. Warren JonesPrincipal C. F. Humphrey’s duties parallel, in several respects, those of a railroad division master. His primary and most difficult task is that of keeping over eight hundred students highballing safely over the long and often difficult grades of the senior high school division. We owe much to Mr. Humphrey, not only for his leadership and guidance, but also for the fact that this high school, mainly through his efforts, has come to be regarded very highly for its high scholastic standing hy other high schools in Indiana and hy major universities in the Midwest. Mr. C. F. Humphrey Much could be said and written about Mrs. Martha Weisflog, Mr. Humphrey’s secretary. Her work is not easy, and the many students who may always be found in the outer office asking for information, purchasing supplies, and answering such queries as "Where were you at the sixth period yesterday?” do little to simplify her tasks. Graduating seniors will remember Mrs. Weisflog as a kind and quiet woman with indefatigable patience, who has the remarkable ability of being able to quell rapidly the anxiety one experiences on being summoned to the office. — 11 — Mrs. Martha WeisflogTwo Temples A builder builded a temple. He wrought it with grace and skill; Pillars and groins and arches All fashioned to work his w ill. Men said as they saw its beauty, “It shall never know decay. Great is thy skill, 0 builder: Thy fame shall endure for aye.” A teacher builded a temple With loving and infinite care, Planning each arch with patience, Laying each stone with prayer. None praised her unceasing efforts None knew of her wondrous plan For the temple the teacher builded Was unseen by the eyes of man. Gone is the builder’s temple, Crumbled into the dust; Low lies each stately pillar, Food for consuming rust. But the temple the teacher builded Will last while the ages roll, For that beautiful, unseen temple Is a child's immortal soul. —Hattie Vose Hall — The stall wishes to express its thanks to the National Education Association for permission to use this poem. — 12 —Faculty Miss Wilma Commer Miss Mildred Dahlberg Miss Mabel Engstroin Mr. James Griffin Miss Bernice Henry Mr. Ivan Horn Mr. George Irgang Mrs. Florence Kelly Miss Genevieve klueh Commer — gay, musical, artistic.

Smokey. do you realize that they compose the largest graduating class in the history of this school?” “Say, that’s really something. Speaking of history, they have a very interesting one.” “Yes, they do. I remember their sophomore year; they had good executives - - • Elliott Sorge was president; Don Lueth, vice-president; Wilma Schumacher, secretary - and good sponsors - - Mrs. Wickham and Mr. Irgang. Besides doing lots of homework, they had lots of fun. The biggest event of the year was the Sophomore Party, with a theme of the Wild West. They were entertained by both male and female chorus lines and songs by the Three Witches.” “Yes, they really started out with a bang, but I think that their junior year is my favorite. They began to feel more at home then, and they joined lots of clubs and other extra-curricular activities. They worked hard in the concessions. and for the sectionals they even obtained a new addition - - a hot dog stand. Besides that, they put on a good Junior Play. In spite of the fact that it was delayed considerably by a “flu” epidemic. “Junior Miss.” ably directed by Miss Luck and starring Phyllis Richter as the impossible adolescent, turned out to be a delightful comedy. From all their hard work they collected a considerable amount of money, which enabled them to put on an extra-fine prom. The theme was ‘An Arabian Night. The entrance was a huge book cover: the walls were completely concealed by huge murals and buildings depicting an Arabian desert and town. The tables had desert oases and dancing girls for centerpieces. The music wa- furnished by Jack Holbrook and his Stardusters. The program was a skit depicting the goings-on in a sultan’s palace. They chose able leaders that year - - - Paul Sherer, president; Joyce l)« laney, vice-president; Elliott Sorge, secretary: and sponsors. Miss Wolfe and Mr. Horn. Altogether. it was a very happy and successful year, not soon t be forgotten. “Their senior year was a thrill, too. They chose male officers—Elliott Sorge, president; Joe Poland, vice-president; Paul Sherer, secretary—and able sponsors—Mrs. Mann and Mr. Irgang. They had lots of business that year: Elstonian pictures had to be taken, credits counted up. cards and announcements ordered, and measurements for caps and gowns taken. In addition, there were practices for the Class Day program, the marching for Commencement, and many other things. In between these activities they presented an hilarious Senior Play. It was a great success, and much honor is due to Miss Luck, the director, and her cast. Everyone in the class did a great job the whole year, and I hope that they all get along as well in the working world as they did in school.” "Cosh, Smokey, they were really busy. I think that they’ve had lots of fun in spite of their grumbling about school work ami things. Even though they're glad to be graduating. I know that they’re sad to realize that their school days are over.” “Yes, Cindy, you’re right. Their Baccalaureate service will be held June 1, and Commencement will be June 5, when the Reverend Harold F. Carr will speak. Just think, soon the band will play the Recessional, the seniors will walk out. and it will all be over.” “Well. Smokey. I wish them all the luck in the world, and I hope that they'll all be good citizens.” “The same goes for me.” Mr. George Irgang — 21 — Mrs. Bernice MannMarie Ahrendt Donald Allison Jack Amdl James Arndt Richard Arndt Ruth Atlas Ralph Bannuiart Nancy Bardonner Ruth Barnhouse Rita Ba zia Marge Beck Ronald Bens: Lyle Bentley Frank Benwell John Berlien Lloyd Berry — 22 —Fred BiUerbeck Wallace Blarney Katherine Brickley Ramona Brinkman Stuart Brolly Barbara Burdick Ramona Burns William Cannon Marjorie Carnahan Richard Chambers Joan Chinski Norman Chinski Gloria Cldebowski John Chrapkowski Loren Cojer Gene Cook Allen Cota Doris Cox Donna Crooks Raul Culpepper Nicholas Dabkowski James Dale Joyce Delaney Joanne Denow — 23 —all slicked up for our pictures Jean DeVaux James Donnelly Ann Dostie Janies Downs Harriet Dyszkiewicz Rose Marie Echimovich William Edinger John Ellis Greta Emmons Wallace Estfan John Feallock Valerie Flueggc Dorothy Foldenauer Marion Foster Allen Fritz Donald FurnessLois Garrison Gretchen Gasteyer Robert Gehrke Lillian Glassrnan Steve GI id den Golleen Goddard Richard Green Phyllis Gring Robert Groendyke Carol Hatfield Norma Haven Joan Hayden Ernest Heberling Jeanette Herrbach Marie Hert Herbert Hibnick Martha Hileman Alex Honyak Robert Hopper Ramona Hundl Ellsworth Irk William Johns Delores Jarnutowski Joan Jasicki — 25 —went to lots of dances and parties . .

They are at the half-way mark; they can look down at what they did as sophomores and look ahead to what they have to do as seniors. As the officers for the Sophomore Class they chose Jim Chamness as president; John Sweeney as vice-president; and Hall Sprague as secretary. Their party, “Harvest Moon,” was reigned over by Janet Rudolph, the queen, with her attendants, Phyllis Johnson, Delores Weber. Marilyn Mitchell, and Pat Powell. As the wood nymph, Dick Brewer portrayed his part wonderfully. Other entertainment for the evening consisted of a sleight-of-hand artist. Bob Gloye, who had everyone laughing. The gym was decorated with straw and pumpkins and with little red and white hens on nests. The evening was danced away under the supervision of Mrs. Mann and Mr. Griffin, the class sponsors. Gay refreshments of ice cream and cake were served, and everyone seemed to have a good time. For the Junior Class they had Miss Murphy and Mr. Griffin as their class sponsors, and Dan Nespo, Jim Chamness, and George Bielski as president, vice-president, and secretary, respectively. Under their leadership the juniors carried on many worth-while activities. At the football and basketball games they took care of the concessions - -selling cokes, candy, ice cream bars, potato chips, and so forth. They also had charge of selling candy and cokes at noon and after school. Last fall the Junior Play, “Lver Since Eve,” was presented with Pat Davis and Bill Rhett in the leading roles. The play was a three-act comedy with a good supporting cast and was really a credit to the class. The main event in the life of a junior is the Prom. This is given by the juniors for the seniors. They worked hard and secretively in room 314. making the decorations. Here’s wishing the best of luck to the hard-working juniors, and we hope that they have a senior year just as happy as ours. — 39 —Junior Play “Oh, Susan! No, please!” Those who saw the Junior Play, the mirthful comedy Ever Since Eve last fall, remember Johnny Clover’s using this expression to Susan Blake over and over again. Johnny is the editor of the school paper with Susan as “Miss Fixer-Upper,” who takes over the job for Johnny when he becomes ill. She complicates things by trying to raise money for a color picture on the front page of the paper. Everything turns out all right, with Susan’s changing her mind about becoming editor.

Robert Lau was chosen as president; Fred Miller, as vice-president; and John Mathias as secretary. The first accomplishment of the Class was the Sophomore Party. It was held on October eighteenth, the theme being a Mardi-gras or the last day of carnival, celebrated as a great day of merrymaking in various cities, chiefly Paris and New Orleans. The sophomores came in multi-colored costumes. Gypsies, Indians, and pirates, to name hut a few, were seen having an hilarious time. Dancing was enjoyed, with music provided by the swing band. Fntertainment was furnished by Anne Jane Crane, Nancy Caserio, Glenn Gring, Joan Blieden, Judith Mayer, Jim Vine, and Danny Tompkins. The main event was the election of the “Sophomore Queen.” Ruth Dry was chosen to reign over the Mardi-gras, with Evelyn Coons, Maredith Collins, Elise Sellers. June Buren, and Lois Shreve as her attendants.

What's that?” “Why, Smokey, membership in the Honor Society is one of the greatest honors that a student can receive in high school. The students and faculty decide who is to be a member on the basis of scholarship, leadership, character, and service. No student knows who is to be elected until an assembly is called in May. The school notifies the parents of the newly elected members, so that they can he present when this honor is bestowed upon their sons and daughters. It’s all very impressive, with the stringed instruments playing beautiful music.” “I think that I’ll wrork harder for better grades to see whether I can be elected.” “It won’t hurt to try, Smokey. If I can do it, so can you.” — 53 —EIstonian Staff Row 1—Don Allison, Stuart Rrolly, Miss Shepherd (sponsor), Martha Hileman, Carol Nicklas, Barbara Olsen, Beverly Krueger, Diane Meilstrup, Kaye Wellman, Joyce Delaney, Marvel Schlunz, Pat Keppen, Phyllis Richter.

Miss Shepherd is the supervisor, you know. They’re the people with all the secrets. The only thing they’ll tell you is who is on the staff.” “Yes, and the staff is really working hard. Don Allison is the editor-in-chief, and Joyce Delaney is the art editor this year. Don and Herbert Ilibnick, the sports editor, were also the photographers. Those boys were really busy!” “The girls work hard, too! Marvel Ann Schlunz, Joan Jasicki, and Jo Hayden were the activities editors, and Phyllis Richter was the feature editor. Let’s see..........Lorraine Tiebert was the faculty editor; Barbara Olsen, the Junior Class editor; and Diane Meilstrup, the Sophomore Class editor.” “All right, all right, don’t get excited! I know that the girls work hard, hut what about Leo Post, the other sports editor; Stuart Brolly, the business manager; and Dale Linn, one of the Senior Class editors? Those fellows really worked.” I’m not going to argue with you, Smokey; but I still think that the girls worked harder, because there are more of them. Pat Keppen was the other Senior Class editor; Carol Nicklas, the circulation manager: and Phyllis Gring, the advertising manager. Marjorie Carnahan and Gretchen Gasteyer were the girls’ sports editors. Besides, the typists were all girls, too! They.are Martha Hileman, Anna Marie Nadaf, and Loretta Rakoczy. Just look at all the girls who are make-up editors - - - Nancy Bar-donner, Beverly Krueger, Corinne Lutz, and Gloria Sudrow!” “But don’t forget Kaye Wellman - - - he’s the make-up editor, who did all the printing!” “Well - - - I suppose you’re right. The hoys have worked hard.” “I’d say that it’s a pretty even draw, Cindy.” — 54 —Crimson Comet Staff I suppose you don’t even know that Row 1 Miss Genevieve Klueh (sponsor), Jim Weisflog, Tom Balow, Jo Hayden, Jot Poland, Carol Nicklas, Paul Petroff, Gram Pitman, Dale Linn.

Cindy; I had to deliver those papers all third period today!” “Why, Smokey, I didn’t know that you were on the staff! You know, I’ve always wanted to see how a paper is made up, and since you’re so very influential and everything . . .” “Oh. all right, come on. and I’ll show you how the staff works, hut you’d better be quiet and stay out of everyone’s way. It's right down the hall here in room 203.” “My goodness, they’re all very busy. What is everyone doing?” “Our editor-in-chief, Joe Poland, and the page editors - Dale Linn, Jo Hayden. Wilma Schumacher. Tom Balow. Harold Wenzel. Leo Post. Marie Kretzmann. and Ed Winski - are meeting over there in the corner. Last semester, you know, Carol Nicklas was editor-in-chief, and Arthur Mayer, Paul Petroff. Jack Swanson. Nancy Bardonner, Ted Thorne. Jim Weisflog, Bob Patterson, and Barbara Atkinson were page editors.” “Who’s that over there, counting all the money?” “That's Grant Pitman, our business manager. Rose Schaumann had that job last semester. The advertising managers, who are Delores Karm and Sallv Stern, are talking to Miss Klueh - - she’s our adviser - - about getting all the advertising in for the next issue. Last semester, advertising was handled by Jim Dale and Ralph Precious.” “You mean that you’re already working on the next issue?” “Of course! Newspaper people are never idle! We always have to be looking for news, besides writing the material, getting advertisers, and selling subscriptions!” “I guess that I never realized how busy the COMET staff is. I really enjoyed watching the staff at work, Smokey.” “That’s all right. Cindy. Now maybe you’ll take me to a G. A. A. meeting sometime.”Qlee Club Row 1—Judy Mayer. Sally Stern.

Those singers certainly sound wonderful. 1 like good music. Let’s look in and see what else we can find out.” “Well. Smokey, this looks like a busy club. They have presented their annual Christmas concert. Parade of Music, Spring Festival, and May Festival, and they have sung at the South Bend Teachers’ Convention. They also participated in the Music Contest. Those who are not graduating will also sing for Baccalaureate and Com mencemen t “Yes, Cindy, they work rather hard, and you have to give those students credit.” “The officers are Paul Sherer, president; Bob Reed, vice-president;Val Fluegge, secretary; George Bielski, treasurer; and Bob Soller, business manager. Esther Kribs and George Perlstein are the librarians. Not everyone would get up early enough to be here at 7:30 in the morning as these students do.” “Well, Smokey. as much as I should like to stay to listen to this wonderful music, I think that we had better travel on.

Now he quiet and listen!” “Smokev, isn’t the orchestra wonderful? I just love the siring section.” “Very well, hut frankly I like the brass better than the strings.” “Oh no, Smokey! The strings are the most important part of the orchestra. Why, it wouldn’t he an orchestra without the violins and the rest of the strings!” “I know, hut it’s unfair to say that the brass section isn’t so important as the string section. For instance . . .” “Let’s not get into another argument! Everybody’s proud of the orchestra just the way it is; so let’s not try to put in more brass or take out the violins!” “Cindy, I didn’t say take out the violins! I like the violins! I only said . . .” “If you insist on arguing. Smokey, I'll leave ami won’t ev m listen to your old brass!” “Okay. okay, let’s change the subject. Do you know who the officers are?” “Let's see • - - Virginia Maschke is the president and the concert master, too: Gloria Ohlhauser is the vice-president; and Marilyn Koss is the secretary. Betty Smith and Conn e Bauer are the librarians. Shirley Preuss is scholarship secretary, and Mary Ann Arndt is point secretary.” “That’s odd. Did you notice that they’re all from the st ing section?” “There you go, bringing up the violins again! I suppose that you think that they ought to he from the brass section!

They’re terrific!” “How can anyone be terrific this early in the morning?” “Listen, Cindy, you can hear them already! Cone on, let’s hurry!” “I’m practically running now!” “Look at them march! Didn’t I tell you that they are wonderful?” “Yes, they do look nice.” “Look, there’s Mr. Myran over there, directing the band, and that’s Irv Denney, the drum major, leading the band.” “Golly, Smokey. I didn’t knowf that you knew so much about the band! Can you tell me who the officers are?” “Tom Hobart is the president, Don Schlundt is the vice-president, and Bob Gehrke is the secretary-treasurer. The librarian is Donna Weber, and the assistant librarians are Jim Lucas, Jo Henry, and Elaine Ulrich. “I can tell you anything you want to know about the band, Cindy.

Why are you still practicing? The foot hall and basketball seasons are over; there won’t he any more after-game dances, and tin Radio Symphonette concert is over.” “Yes, hut we still play for school parties and dances.” “You know.

Cindy, let’s investigate.” “What is the emblem on the girls’ blue sweaters, Smokey?” “It looks like the Tri-Hi-Y, with the symbol of a burning torch. I wonder who the officers of the organization are?” “Well. Smokey, they have two groups - - one for each semester. The officers last fall were Mary Alice Cook, president; Delores Karin, vice-president; Jean DeVaux. secretary: Gertrude Dieckilnian. treasurer: and Phyllis Gring, chaplain. For the second semester Gloria Ohlhauser was president; Janet Van Sickle, vice-president; Maiianne Haller, secretary, Pat Davis, treasurer; and Dorothy Ann Hardt, chaplain. Miss Relander is the sponsor.” “Cindy I have found that this club is largely a service organization. They help raise money for needy causes and also send boxes overseas to people who are less fortunate than we.” “One of the major events is the annual Christmas formal. Smokey. The Hi-Y and the Tri-Hi-Y clubs sponsor the dance.” “I know. Cindy; they have accomplished a great deal, although the club was organized only two years ago.

They meet on Wednesday evenings. Those in charge are Wally Estfan, president; Jim Chamness, vice-president; Dick Rhodes, secretary; Jim Weisflog. treasurer: Louis Stephenson, chaplain; and Dick Brewer, sergeant-at-arms.

These are just district conferences, hut they also hold a state conference for the older boys.” “Oh yes, Cindy, and I have discovered that their purpose is the same as that of the Tri-Hi-Y: ‘To create, maintain, and extend throughout the school and community, high standards of Christian character.’ Their ideals are clean living, clean scholarship, clean speech, and clean athletics. “Come on.

They have to give up their study hall period, which is quite handy, especially when it is time for exams.” “Besides distributing call-out slips, Smokey, they get the mail for senior high school and also do other errands for different teachers.” “How do you get to he an office messenger, Cindy?” “That had me puzzled, too. Smokey, but I came to the conclusion that the group is a rather select one. As a rule the principal asks you if you would like to serve. If so, you can officially call yourself an office messenger.” “Well.

Last semester Jean DeVaux was president. Sue Sprague was vice-president, and Bette Downs was secretary. This semester Jim Weisflog is president.

Their duty is to see that no one breaks the rules.” “What do you mean by breaking the rules, Cindy?” “Oh. a few students sometimes want to talk incessantly, chew gum, pitch pennies, and cause other annoying occurrences.” “By the way, Cindy, I’ll bet that is what those small white pieces of paper are for.” “Yes. they are. Smokey. I guess that you call them demerit slips, and after you have acquired twelve demerits, you are called before the Student Court” “Is this the only place where there are monitors. Cindy? ’ “Oh no. they also have monitors in the library. In study hall there are monitors for each period, with a captain itt charge, and the monitors under him have the privilege of sitting at the front desk. As a rule they rotate every week.” “Well. Cindy, it looks as though this school has a good system of keeping law and order.” — 64 —Hall Patrol Row 1—George Irgang (sponsor), Bob Lau, Rulh Atlas, Pearl Soloff, Elaine Timm, Drusilla Bingo, Bill Schnick, Jerry Hance.

Their duty is quite similar to that of the monitors, except that they keep law and order in the halls.” “This must be quite a task. I suppose that they keep the students from running and from blocking traffic.” “That is exactly it, and the group is a large one, too, Cindy. For the first semester Jerry Storey was chief of the Hall Patrol, and the captains were as follows: first floor. Frank Speidel: second floor, Herbert Hibnick; and third floor, John LeRoy. The chief in the new auditorium building was Ronald Slisher.” "Do they change officers each semester, Smokey?” “Yes, they do. Those for the second semester were co-chiefs, Jerry Storey and Herbert Hibnick; captain of first floor, Charles Thomas: second floor, Frank Speidel: third floor. John LeRoy; and chief in the new auditorium building was Bryed Billerbeck.” “It seems to me, Smokey, that they keep law and order in the corridors as well as in the library and study hall.” — 65 —Blackfriars Row 1—Dick Noveroskc, Jo Spiiuller, Joanne Haven.

Who are your officers this year?” “Last semester Barbara Krueger was president. Joan Blieden was vice-president, and Sally Stern was secretary. This semester Bob Coburn is president, Joan Blieden is vice-president, and Sally Stern is secretary.” “This club with Miss Wolfe, the sponsor, does much to bring out the acting talents that so many students would never use.” “Yes, and we also entertain the student body, and other organizations by giving little plays. It’s so much fun to work on a play!

We elected Kester Pollock, president; Bill Rhett, vice-president; Jim Nicholas, secretary; and Phyllis Richter, treasurer last semester. This semester Phyllis Gring was president; Nancy Bardonner, vice-president; Corinne Lutz, secretary; and Kester Pollock, treasurer.” “All these officers, along with the very able direction of their sponsor, Miss Luck, managed to keep the group under control.” “They certainly do have an extraordinarily large group this year, Smokey, hut 1 am sure that all the members have worked hard to earn requirements for entrance, and they should be very proud to be members of the National Thespians.” — 67 —Dahlites Row 1—Miss Dahlberg (sponsor).

The tea was for only the Dahlites, their mothers, and the faculty.” “Well anyway, you can tell me about it, can’t you?” “Of course, I can. You remember all those beautiful displays in the library, don’t you? They were all based on the Book Week theme, ‘Books Are Bridges.’ The winning exhibit was made by Anne Jane Crane and Joan Widmar.” “I remember theirs; it was the Chinese exhibit. What else happened at the tea?” “A short skit was presented by our president, Thelma Larson; vice-president, Mary Lane Storen; secretary, Dorothy Spiro: and other girls to show the work of the Dahlites - - such as checking books in and out, keeping the shevles in order, and helping students and teachers find the books they want.” “It sounds as though it offered lots of fun!

We choose topics of current interest and argue the affirmative and negative of the resolution. It keeps the students interested in the news of the day and gives them a good chance to talk." “How do you manage to keep the students in order? I know how people like to talk.” “Our president, Joan Jasicki. calls on members to recite, and keeps the others quiet. Tom Hobart is vice-president, and Sue Sprague is the secretary.

The team can play better if they know that there is someone cheering for them.” “You can repeat that. Cindy! I know exactly what you mean.” “Besides just cheering at the games, Smokey, the Red Derbies plan tin pep sessions for the school and give both a football and a basketball party for the teams.” “Planning pep sessions doesn't sound like an easy task, does it, Cindy?” “It isn't! Plenty of time and effort are put forth to plan them.” “Say, Cindy, I wonder whether you saw the pins some of the students were wearing.” “Do you mean those round ones, shaped like basketballs with ‘Red Devils printed in red on them?” “Yes, Cindy, this was only one of the ways the Club helped to encourage school spiiit.” “Low is the club run.

Thomas Andrew Gill — known affectionately as Andy to his friends, who are numbered in the hundreds — has passed on, leaving us to pause and reflect on his life and reap the rewards of his mind and hands. In 1021 when Andy joined our faculty, he coached all of the six major sports in which the high school engaged. This was a heavy load, hut Andy did not complain. He was bothered, however, by the fact lhat under this one-coach system so few boys had the opportunity to participate in athletics. There was no opportunity for “B” teams in football or basketball, and the minor sports were neglected altogether. After seven years of working and planning, Andy’s efforts became fruitful. The school hired other coaches — first, for basketball: then one by one, for the other sports. The land to the south of the school was purchased and named Gill Field in his honor. This property was improved by the addition of track equipment, goal posts, bleachers, and a field house, so that today it is a center for our outdoor sports. Andy did more, however, than advance the physical condition of the athletic system. lie provided a living inspiration of the fine and noble in man. He was a coach in the true sense of the word. He was not only an adviser in the games of sport, but also an adviser in the game of life. Andy had great faith in youth. His first concern was not with the winning or losing of a game but w ith the welfare of his boys. His life was devoted to the advancement of youth, a noble task in which lie succeeded immeasurably. Michigan City and our high school w ill not forget Andy Gill. Instead his ideals and influences will live with us always as “. . . . echoes roll from soul to soul And grow forever and forever.” — 76 —Baseball 1946 How 1—Jack Link, Robert Drzewiecki, Eugene Skibinski, Don Miller, David Lau, Don Waite, Elliott Sorge, Clem Vankoski, Richard Green.

At the start of the baseball season Coach Andy Gill had about 60 boys from whom to create the fine 1946 baseball team. Although there were only a few boys who had returned from the 1945 team, the 1946 Red Devil team and Elkhart tied for the eastern division trophy. This success was the result of fine coaching and the excellent spirit of the boys. The managers were Leo Post and Bryed Billerbeck. 1946 Schedule April 23 Michigan City 8 Washington (South Bend) 3 April 26 Michigan City 8 Nappanee 4 April 30 Michigan City 5 John Adams (South Bend) 3 May 3 Michigan City 10 La Porte 9 May 6 Michigan City 9 Elkhart 8 May 14 Michigan City 2 Rilcv (South Bend) 1 May 17 Michigan City 4 Central (South Bend) 0 May 21 Michigan City 1 Mishawaka 1 77Golf Mr. Parsons (coach), William Schlaak, Jerome Bleck, Dick Schapanski, George Kay, Gerry Waite, Bob Averitt.

At the beginning of the season we had truly a stellar team. Bob Burnham, junior state champion, played in our number one flight, and John Feallock, who, with Bob, teamed up to take the St. Joseph Valley doubles crown, played in the number two spot. Lyle Lee, runner up in the third flight of the N. I. U. S. tournament last year, filled our number three position. After breezing through two matches, 5 to 0, these three boys were declared ineligible for high school tennis because of their entrance in the Michigan City Closed Tennis Tournament. This left the team to rely on the somewhat untried talents of Dan Nespo. Jim Weisflog, Herb Hibnick. and John Sweeney. In view of these facts, the team still had a good season, winning six matches and dropping only two. 1946 -1947 CONFERENCE TENNIS SCHEDULE September 10 Michigan City 5 Mishawaka 0 September 12 Michigan City 5 North Side (Ft.

Tlie 1946 football season had the usual ups and downs of any other season. There were a few upsets, as when we heat Riley and Goshen, and there were a few heart-breaking defeats. The team showed great energy and enthusiasm in their training and their games. At the end of the season the team elected Fred Billerbeck as their captain. Fred was also honored by being named as a guard on the all - conference team of 1946. At the end of the season the annual best-plaver-award program is held. At that time the team chooses whom they consider their most valuable player. This year our stellar half-back, Gene Skibinski, received the most votes and was elected the best player of 1946. The best defensive player is determined by the number of tackles each player makes. After the records were compiled, Fred Billerbeck was found to have the most tackles to his credit and was presented his award. These awards are made possible by the Tivoli and News-Dispatch, and Jim Dilworth, as sports editor, presented them. — 80 —Football “Ooooo! What a rough-looking game this is, Smokey! What is it called? Football, you say? My, I’m sure that I shouldn’t enjoy playing such a strenuous and dirty game. The boys must like it, though; look at them plunging against each other. It is a wonder that they don t injure themselves. I suppose that they are well trained, though, by Coach Delbert Miller so that they can take care of themselves. Look at that picture at the bottom of the page, for instance. That’s Gondek playing in the Riley game with the helmet that the coach bought for him after Frank injured his head. The coach and assistants take every precaution to keep their players in good condition. Much of the success of our team depends on their work. Still I should not enjoy playing such a rough game.

When Ciolek’s pass to Lueth in the first few minutes of play was good, it looked as though La Porte would have a tough fight on their hands, but in the time that followed it was an altogether different story. City couldn’t stop La Porte’s hard driving, and the final score, 34 - 6, left the Devils on the short end. Benton Harbor Benton Harbor’s team came here on September 23 to nose out the Red Devils, 19 to 13. Although many observers claimed that we out-played the Harborites, we could not outseore them. The Tigers’ passing offense led them to a narrow victory. Our star on the offensive was Gene Skibinski, and our scoring was done by Ciolek and Chamness. Goshen Skibinski again starred as the Devils beat Goshen, 20 to 19, on the twenty-seventh of September at Antes Field. All evening Ciolek’s passes were regularly finding their receivers, Chamness and Lueth. The game was one of the best of the season for the team and was somewhat of an upset, since the Redskins were highly rated. The winning point was converted by Vankoski in the last quarter. Elkhart Jim Chamness and Rob Ciolek proved to be an almost infallible passing combination on October 4 against the Elkhart Blue Blazers. Our first tally came in the second quarter, and from that time on it was all Michigan City. The only Blazer score was on a brilliant run-back of a kick-off. In the second half the boys really turned on the steam, and the game ended with a 26 to 6 victory. Central (S. B.) One of the weak spots of the season was the defeat of the Devils by the Central Bears of South Bend on October 11. Frank Gondek, entering the game in the third quarter, sparked the team and was the highlight of City’s offense. This offense started too late for a score, however, and the final score read 31 to 0. Clinton On October 18 the Devils traveled south to Clinton to overpower the small Wildcat team. 26 to 6. Ciolek’s passing was the winning factor again, but this time the passes went to the ends. Vankoski and Lueth. The game was well played in spite of the little support from the school rooters, because of the distance from City to Clinton. The team spent the night at Terre Haute, returning home on Saturday. Riley (S. B.) Michigan City upset the highly-ranked Riley Wildcats on October 25 by a score of 19 to 13. The game was held at 13-12 for three quarters, until Ciolck’s pass to Vankoski was good for sixty yards and and the winning touchdown. Our line played admirably, holding in check the strong Riley chargers. Adams (S. B. 1 The Devils overran the Adams Eagles on the first of November by a score of 27 to 6. This game marked the first full-game return of Frank Gondek, our regular full-back, who was injured early in the season. He went over the goal line three times and led the team to victory. La Porte (There) The last game of the season, on November 8, w as the conference game against La Porte. The team was against a great Slicer power that won the Eastern Division crown. Some 7.000 people overflowed Kiwanis field to see the final game of the season betw'een the rivals. Behind the top quarter-back work of Dick Alban, the Slicers defeated City. 20 to 7. Our only tally came when, after a hard fight, Ciolek completed a pass to Chamness, who ran a short distance to cross the line. — 82 —Pink Imps Row 1—Bob Lau, Don Powers.

Although their record was not impressive, the boys improved considerably during the season. Some fine material was found in John Mathias and Lyle Lee, who played varsity ball before the season closed. Mathias led the team in scoring for the season with 116 points. — 83Basketball In the opening game of the season the Red Devils heat a highly-rated Lew Wallace team, 43 to 38. Nespo was the high point man, with 19 points to his credit. In the first home game the Devils pushed down a small Brazil team by the score of 43 to 42. The fourth quarter proved to be the telling one. In the closing minutes of the game Vankoski scored the free throw that meant victory to the Devils. The Valparaiso Vikings were next to fall in defeat at the hands of our team. The final score read 34 to 30. It was a very low scoring game because of the excellent guarding by both teams. It was not until the second quarter that Molen scored the first field goal for our team. Roosevelt of East Chicago was the fourth team to be downed by the Wegnermen after a heated battle. After a see-saw game, the Devils finally got the lead at the end of the third quarter and held it for the rest of the game. The final score read 28 to 26. Unable to withstand the Devils, the North Judson Blue Jays bowed to us, 45 to 27. The Devils led from the very start, and the Jays just could not get back into the game. Nespo was leading scorer, with 10 points. Playing La Porte at the Civic Auditorium, the Devils met their first defeat. Although our boys played their best, it w as an easy victory for the Slicers, the final score reading 56 to 41. A holiday tournament was held during the Christmas vacation in our new auditorium. Four teams -Frankfort, Riley, Peru, and Michigan City - participated. Michigan City won over Frankfort in the afternoon game, as did Peru over Riley. In the evening games Frankfort defeated Riley in the consolation game, and the Devils defeated Peru, 37 to 34,to win the tournament and to add another trophy to the school trophy case. Playing at Elkhart, the Devils lost again to a rough Blazer team. Our final push in the fourth quarter fell just short of a victory, and when the gun sounded, we were on the short end of a 44 to 42 score. Traveling to Adams of South Bend, the team was just nosed out by a fast breaking Eagle team. In our only overtime game of the season the Adams boys scored the last basket, to end the game with a 39 to 35 score. Back on our home court the boys came through with another win over the Nappanee Bulldogs. Even with the second string playing most of the fourth quarter, it was an easy win for the Devils, with the final score reading 56 to 43. On a cold day in January the Devils met the Eastern Division champions, the Central Bears. Although it was a hard-fought and exciting game, the Bears were just too much for our Devils, and when the gun sounded, we were on the short end of a 42 t) 31 score. Traveling eastward to Fort Wayne, the Devils were defeated again by a scrapping Redskin team. Fighting their best, the team found themselves trailing, 37 to 32, at the end of the game. On the last day of January the La Porte team came here to play against the Devils in a filled - to -capacity auditorium. Although the score was not particularly close, both teams had to earn every point they made, and the Slicers just earned a few more than the Devils. The final score was 56 to 41. The Devils defeated the St. Mary’s Blue Blazers, 52 to 42. taking the city crown. A last quarter rush by the Blazers did not do quite enough scoring to overcome the big lead the Devils had piled up in the first part of the game. The Devils defeated the Mishaw aka Cavemen in our second conference win of the season, 44 to 38. Taking the lead early in the second quarter, the Devils played hard and kept the lead until the final gun sounded. Ciolek was high scorer, with 18 points. Playing host to the Cardinals of Blue Island, Illinois, the Devils showed why Indiana is considered — 84 —Varsity Basketball Team Row 1—Dan Nespo, Larry Molen.

After putting in the second string in the last quarter, the Cardinals crept u; . to make the score look close. Without the aid of high-scoring and mainstay ce iter. Ciolek. the Devils were beaten by a high-spirited Riley of South Bend team. After playing the Wildcats on even terms throughout most of the game, the Devils were finally defeated by a last-quarter pudi. and the final score read 48 to 40. In the last game of the season before the Indiana State tournament the Devils played host to the Goshen Redskins. It was a fitting finale to our regular season: for the Devils beat the Redskins by racking up the most points in one game of the whole season, defeating Goshen 61 to 48. In the Sectional Tournament the Devils defeated Stillwell and Westville. to place in the semi - finals against our arch-rival. I.a Porte. In. beyond a doubt, the best game of the season, both for the players and the team, we upset a highly-rated Slicer team. 31 to 29. The coach and the team attested after the game that the game was won because of sheer fight and fortitude on the part of our team. It was clear-lv an upset, but a most pleasant one for all Michigan City. In the final game of the Sectional Tourney the Devils easilv defeated a small Clinton Township team. 40 to 17. In the Regional Tournament in Hammond the Devils were paired with the powerful Last Chicago Washington team in the afternoon game. Led by their all-state center, Ray Regalis. the Senators defeated the Devils. 43 to 28. Washington went all the way down to Indianapolis in the State Tourney, to be defeated in the finals by the 1947 state champions, the Shelbyville Golden Bears. — 85 —T rack How 1—Don Spychalski, Dick Noveroske, Dale Morgan, Wally Estfan.

The 1946 track team, being staffed by many veterans, had a very successful season. Our strength lay in the distance races and in the hurdle events. In the mile and half-mile races Bob Decker and Jim Weisflog proved to he a tough combination. Roy Mignery and Don Leuth speedily topped the timbers for many valuable points. Ray Schnick tied the Gill Field record in the 220-yard dash. Behind these individual stars was a hard-working group of hoys, who made 1946 a year of victorious events. This season furnished a state champion from high school for the first time in six years and for the fourth time in our school track • history. Jim Weisflog traveled to Indianapolis last year to win the state 880-yard title. This victory was no accident or lucky break for Jim, but the result of many long hours of practice. Five days a week for practice were not enough for him; many week-ends he was seen further developing his championship form. Jims tireless work and effort brought track honor and fame to our school. — 87 —iBnw Practice pass Xn the rough Conversion Over the top Averitt vs. handicapped Cook On 'l our mark Forehand drive High Heberlmg V hoosh Back-hand drive Incognito on the court Checking inA.

Tell us about it.” “Well, as 1 started down the aisle in the train to my drawing room, whom should I run into hut KESTER POLLOCK, my old school chum, who was now a conductor. It surely was hard to believe that ten years had gone by since that sad. sad day of graduation. “Later, while I was in the dining car. JOK POLAND sat down next to me and he told me that he was touring the country, making campaign speeches for governor. He had been near Indiana University, where JAMES NICHOLAS was teaching the fundamentals of psychology and PHYL GR1NG was teaching advanced social studies. Why, I remember Jim and Phyl, working away in Mr. Irgang's English class. “Just about that time we stopped at Chicago; I bought a paper, only to find JOAN JASICKI in the headlines as the woman lawyer who had solved a very hafiling murder with the assistance of JERRY STOREY, chief of police! “As I leafed through the paper. I noticed the billing of a production of ‘file Return of Gilda,’ starring NANCY BARDONNER and BOR SOLLER. It brought back memories of the days of the Junior and Senior plays. ‘DONALD LI ETH’S Sports Equipment’ was an advertisement that caught my eye. 1 wondered if that could be ‘Duck,’ one of our 'Red Devil’ stars back in ’47. “When I returned to the train, I decided to retire to my room for a quiet evening, listening to the radio and reading. I noticed that the LIFE magazine I was reading was edited by none other than DON ALLISON, with CAROL NICKLAS and STUART BROLLY also on the staff. My, what a small world! “Just as I was about to dial a different program, TED THORNE, a sports announcer advertising SHERER'S Shoes came on the air. In the sports world JOHN FEALLOCK and HERBERT HIBNICK have been leading in the tennis tournament, and PHYL STRAl KAS just set a new record in the swimming field. JIM (SKINNYI WEISFLOG ran the mile in three minutes at the Olympics. “The next morning I awoke still thinking of those good old school days. In an hour we arrived in Philadelphia, where we were to stop all afternoon. Since there wasn’t much else to do. 1 decided to see a movie. On my way to the theater I noticed a little shop named DELANEY'S FROCKS, with all sorts of dresses, which had all been designed by JOYCE DELANEY. “Farther down the street there was a small hamburger stand. As it took my interest, I went in. Who should wait on me but the owner himself - - CHUCK SHI LL. assisted by his faithful little helpers, GENE COOK and ARTHUR MAYER. “Still trying to waste time. I entered a department store, but almost before 1 had gotten through the doorway, a clerk dashed up. There stood RUTH ATLAS ready to sell me the whole store. All of a sudden someone ‘gently’ patted me on the back, and when I recovered, ERNIE HEBERLING was standing before me. just like a little 'red devil'. He proudly announced that he was the manager of the store and that JIM ARNDT and FRED BILLERBECK were his able assistants. “After I had been shown every square inch of th‘ building. I proceeded to the theater. I bought a ticket from the cashier, who was none other than DOT SPIRO. The theater was owned and under the complete management of the fairer sex. PAT KEPPEN was the owner, and SALLY MOORE and MARIANNE KICKl SH were the ‘femme fatale usherettes who showed me to my seat. “I continued my little expedition through the city, following quite a thrilling cowboy show, starring J ACK PARKER and ED UTLEY. My next stop was the ‘five and ten.' Taking the escalator up to the second floor, I noticed several familiar faces. ELAINE KASSL BE. MARGARET MCGINLEY, and LOIS MANTHEY were very earnestly managing their sections. As 1 passed by the main office, where MARTHA HILEMAN and ALVIN SCHL MAKER were working hard, who should stop me but WALLY’ ESTFAN, the owner, himself.” “Well, what did Wally have to say after ten years of freedom? “It didn't seem too much like freedom to him. Smokey, since his work kept him quite busy. Nevertheless. he seemed to know quit a bit of gossip. “It seemed that LORRAINE TIEBERT had just returned from overseas after an important mission. She is the secretary of an interpreter. CARL PL R'TT.L had been drawing and w riting for the Chicago Daily Sews. LARRY MOLEN owned a gas station down in Kentucky, with CHUCK SIEBERT as his assistant. '‘That was about all of the gossip. Glancing at my watch. I discovered that it was time to eat dinner, so I said ‘good bye’ and started once again on my journey. — 96 —The Weary Traveler “Feeling in the mood for soft music and white-coat waiters, 1 entered iuite a swanky cafe. With all possible dignity LOUIS STEPHENSON and DON TRACY very politely ushered me to my table in the dimly lighted room, after HARRIET DYSKIEWICZ, the hat check girl, had taken my coat. “Suddenly the spot light caught six silhouettes outlined against a light background. JO HAYDEN, VIVIAN WALTERS, DIANE MEILSTRUP, BOR REED. DON SCHULTZ, and CHUCK LEI ST were heard singing softly. As I was giving my order to the waiter, who was none other than JACK ‘SWEDE’ SWANSON, up came ANN DOSTIE, trying frantically to sell me some cigars. “When the sextet finished their delightful singing. MARVEL SCHLUNZ and ELLIOTT SORGE showed extreme talent in a clever dance routine. Then the band featured WILBUR ABEL, BOB GEHRKE, RALPH PRECIOUS, and Don SCHLUNDT, playing ‘Gravel Beater.’ Accompanied by the hand, ADAM PIECHNIK sang an old favorite, ‘Sentimental Reasons.’ “Finishing a good meal, I once again started down the avenue. As I approached the corner, I noticed PAUL (FOO) PETROFF and JOHN LEROY, both directing traffic as a fire engine came clanging down the street with BRUCE LOGMANN and RONALD BENSZ hanging on the rear. “Safely across the street, 1 turned my steps toward the railroad station. I breathed a sigh of relief when once again in my compartment aboard the train.” “Where did you go from there?” “After a few more stops, and what seemed like weeks of travel, Cindy, I finally arrived at my destination, Hollywood, California. "The first thing the next morning I followed up one of my fondest ambitions, witnessing the production of a motion picture. The guide, DICK LEVIN, was very helpful in pointing out everything of importance to me. As we entered one studio they were in the process of rehearsing ‘Cloudy Skies,' with VAL FLUEGGE and DICK RHODES in the leading roles. “While JIM DONNELLY was using every bit of effort in directing the very able cast, JOHN BERLIEN, the producer, attended to the business part of the production. “As I started to leave the studio, TOM KRUEGER stopped to talk to me. He had been filling in comedy parts for different pictures. “The next day, I stopped at a modeling school where BEV KRUEGER and KATIE BRK.KLEY were doing professional modeling. Bev was modeling for BURDICK’S BLOl SES and Katie for HAVEN’S HATS. “In the same building I passed a barber shop where DICK GREEN, the owner, took pride in giving DICK JOHNSON a very short ‘crew cut.’ Adjoining the barber shop was a hair-styling shop operated by SHERWOOD SALMASSY, and at that moment he was styling the hair of one of the PODGORSKI twins. Farther down the corridor I noticed KAYE WELLMAN, trimming the window of his little flower shop. “I was fascinated by many other interesting places in that building. I passed a small office where BARBARA STIBBE, owner of a comic magazine company, was writing a few jokes for the next edition. BARBARA ZIESMER. her assistant, was trying to give her some clever ideas. “After I had left the building, 1 roamed down the street to a small library and decided to get a good book to read that night. The librarian, WILMA SCHUMACHER, was very helpful in assisting me. She pointed out one of the latest best sellers, which was written by THELMA LARSON. I also noticed a collection of poems written by RITA WOLFF. Since I was very tired, 1 then returned to my hotel for a quiet evening’s rest.” “How long did you stay in Hollyw'ood, Phyl?” “I stayed only about one week longer, Smokey, before I said goodbye to the hotel manager, ED PASULA, and started for home. “Because I was getting a little homesick and was in a hurry to get back. I decided to go by airplane. My trip was quite pleasant with the cheerfulness of DELORES KARM and BARBARA OLSEN, the hostesses. “Even though I did have a very pleasant trip, still I am glad to be at home. Of course, there are loads of things I did and many other people that I saw, but it would take forever to tell you everything. “Why, right here in Michigan City, GLORIA OHLHAUSER and JEANETTE VIA NTH EY have a school of music, and GERRY SCHULTZ owns a car factory. STEVE GLIDDEN teaches the freshman Purdue class at old Isaac C. Elston. “I guess that I shall always be meeting one or another of my old classmates from that good old Class of ’47. I wonder what everyone will be doing in another ten years?” “Well, Phyl, Smokey and I had better be going home. I hope that another ten years won’t elapse before we meet again. — 97 —Will it run?

In 1945, 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! 1 v C—• 1 I V C ) " 1 ■ I T O fityrmn'ty INC.
