Today the volume may serve only the purpose of remind- ing the students of the past nine months. However, the ELSTONIAN will serve its main purpose ,when at some time, perhaps after dreams have become realities, it presents to the reader memories of forgotten events. The theme of Endless, Horizons was chosen with the realization that with every rising sun new events will occur, new ideas will be born, and new inventions will appear. ffefif Qgvify S' U! ...- , S 1 i-i--1 ,,i.1-vi .. - ..,- --,,.,-4' -,- ...... ........ .1-.-"' ----" Z ..i- A -'-'ii' 1.1--1 -11' .,...,i-- - ,.......-- - , ,?1,.,..-.

The president is Mr. Arnold Cola, the secretary, Mrs. Robert Reppert, and the treasurer, Mr. William Flotow. Also helping the Board are Miss Alma Schilf and two assistant secretaries, Mrs. Richard Fisher and Miss Marcia Meads.

By his help and leadership our school has earned high recognition in the scholastic field. Like the graduating class of "53," through the efforts of Mr. Knapp, the school system is benefiting by the use of the latest edu- cational ideas. Mr. M. L.

Their services to our future men and women consist of giving physical check-ups to all male prospective athletes, and emergency medical aid to any student or students becoming ill while in school. Our director of guidance, Miss Bess Day, is given the task of helping our students to overcome ob- stacles in their school courses and in their choice of colleges to attend for further education. Mr. Robert Bucy, the all-school attendance officer, is responsible for keeping an eye on those who are known frequently to miss classes, especially those absent without reason. lt might be added that he brings " 'em back alive," too. Miss Bess Day Mr. Robert Bucy 10 PRINCIPAL Mr. C. F. Humphrey, our principal, has the great task of guiding the students in the last three years of high school, the years before they enter the world of endless horizons on their own. By much work and lots of determination Mr. Humphrey has established and main- tained the high standards of the school. The graduating class wishes to thank Mr. Humphrey for his direction and aid and for his concern for the welfare of the study body. Mr. C. F. Humphrey As secretary to Mr. Humphrey Mrs. Lloyd Hamilton handles more thqn the iob of an average secretary, she must sell school sup- plies, check the attendance of students, and serve as a general information bureau for students.

They try to keep the appearance of the building at its best. Few students realize the work entailed and the time spent in cleaning the building. ln spring and summer, they mow and water the lawn, in fall they rake the leaves, and in winter they clear the sidewalks of snow to prevent iniury to anyone. Unlike, the students, the ianitors must attend school all year. I6 .-X Q Q' J' Q 'l -in 5 . i I4 ,MIN 4 Bri! Ib f" 'z j 1 ,N1:, -A?

We have successfully concluded three years of hard work and pleasures, and our school life at Isaac C. Elston Senior High School is finished. Looking back into our first year in senior high school, we recall that we chose Kenny Schreiber as president, Merhth Houck, vicespresidentp and Mickey Taylor, secretary-treasurer. Class sponsors were Miss Dorothea Wolfe and Mr. William Giffel. The big event of our first year was the Sophomore Party, with our theme being "Ridge Runners." As we stepped into our iunior year, we saw many new responsibilities ahead of us. We elected as our leaders Allan Lazarus, president, Dick Korn, vice-president, Mary Drake, secretary-treasurer. Our sponsors were Miss Mellie Luck and Mr. William Nicholson. One of the highlights of the year was the Junior Play, Cheaper by the Dozen. One of our chief activities was the selling of concessions at noon and after school. At the conclusion of our year we staged the annual prom, given for the graduating seniors, the theme being "Desert Fantasy." 4 We advanced one more step into the Endless Horizons. Allan Lazarus was chosen to lead us in our senior year, with Bert Waterhouse as his assistant. Shirley McAlpine carried on the business transactions. The tremendous task of sponsoring the seniors was given to Miss Goldie Shepherd and Mr. William Giffel. This year we presented Our Town as the Senior Play. Some of the other highlights of the year were the winning of i953 Basketball Sectional Tourney and the publishing of the l953 ELSTONIAN.

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY Our sophomore year was filled with the exciting newness of senior high. We elected Blake Water- house as our president, Nancy Booth as vice-president, and Terry Edwards as secretary-treasurer. Mr. Miller and Mrs. Morgan were our sponsors. The biggest social event that year was the annual Sophomore Party, which boasted of a French atmosphere. Our iunior year has been filled with many exciting events. In the fall the class put on the Junior Play, which was a fantasy named Green Valley. We had concessions at all the games and at school 'to help finance the Junior Prom, which we will give in honor of the Senior Class. Blake Waterhouse, president, Paul Pittsford, vice-president, and Bill Wright, secretary-treasurer, were elected to lead us over the horizon of our iunior year. Mr. Miller and Mrs. Morgan again assisted the class.

The theme, "Dude Ranch," was a huge success, and we shall never forget the party. The decorations consisted of horses, cowboy hats, and cactus-with everyone dressed to tit the occasion. First on the entertainment for the evening was a Dixieland band called "B-Bar-B Riders," made up of Ken McKee, Duane Barts, Larry Maxey, and Phil Mclntosh. They were followed by two humorous skits. To climax our party, there was an old-fashioned square dance, and refreshments were then served by the chuck-wagon crew. 50 OFFICERS AND SPONSORS Row 7: lim Hurst, Mavis Brant, Lee Dabagia.

For our officers we chose Lee Dabagia as president, Jim Hurst as vice-president, and Mavis Brant as secretary. Our first big step toward the horizon was the Sophomore Party. The theme was "Dude Ranch," and the party was held on October 3, 1952, in the New Auditorium. 51 r Agnew, Ella H .in - bn Ainsworlh,Palricia Q, ff Allen, George , "'- L, Anderson larry Q B ' 7 ' Q 23 Angeledes Ronald ' ' 'L , - -1 Aasgaard, Phillip Q' P4 1 H gr ,- 0 , . - 1 ---, of J t. - Alberlson, Belly Mfg K y X Q g 1 Q x ..., I 1 it Q ?

Aj A. Miss Sebesta, Pat Januchowski, Beverly Moon, Sharon Coupland, Mavis Brant. The G. A. A. offers a broad horizon for any girl who has the desire to participate in sports. This is the only qualification necessary ...the desire to participate ...in any sport from soccer to baseball. Miss Frances Sebesta, the sponsor, generously gives her time to referee the games, which are played after school in the girls' gym. The girls meet the second Wednesday of the month in the study hall to carry on their business and select their teams. The officers for the entire year are elected at the beginning of the first semester. This year Mavis Brant was elected president, Beverly Moon, vice-president, Sharon Coupland, secretary, and Pat Janu- chowski, treasurer. This year the girls gave a potluck supper in the cafeteria and invited the G. A. A. from Rolling Prairie and from Westville. They sang songs and played deck tennis. The girls also sponsored a dance after one of the basketball games and gave a radio program. For every game in which a girl participates, she receives five points. At the end of the school year the twenty girls with the highest number of points get letters, and the girls who are lucky enough to be on a winning team receive small MC's. Out of the top twenty girls the one who is voted the outstanding athlete of the year receives a sweater. 103 SOCCER Soccer is the first sport played by the G. A.

CROSS COUNTRY The autumn of 1952 saw the successful rise of a new sport in our athletic program. Guided by Coach Elmer Millbranth, the cross-country team compiled a respectable 6 win, 6 loss record in its first season of competition. These boys who run over hill and dale and through fields, and leap over fences, also finished eleventh out of twenty-one schools in the conference meet, fifth out of nineteen schools in the sectional, and sixth out of seventeen schools in the Hobart Invitational. These accomplishments point out the hustle and deter- mination needed in the rugged N.l.H.S.C. In this sport, where the lowest score wins, Richard Strakowski led his teammates home with an average of 4.4 points per meet. Following Strakowski were Harlan Hunt with 10.5, John Arndt with 14.0, Jack Wright with 19.8, Dick Kabacinski with 21.8, and Dick Blieden with 25.3. Strakowski, Hunt, J. Wright, and Kabacinski are returning in 1953. This fact should serve as a warning to some of the other cross-country teams in northern Indiana that the Red Devils of 1953 are going to be tough to beat. At the end of the season Richard Strakowski was elected by his teammates as captain of the 1952 cross-country team. 'FL Wayne North MICHIGAN CITY ...,. TMISIHCVIGIKG ..... MICHIGAN CITY ...,..

The team, with its light line and speedy backfield, dropped the opening game to East Chicago Wash- ington, 13-7, and then went on to win four straight. During this streak the Red Devils stopped South Bend Central's undefeated string at nineteen games, by defeating the Bears, 6-O. The Plewmen also upset l.aPorte's applecart after the Slicers had won eleven straight, by defeating them, 7-6. After defeating LaPorte, the Red Devils found themselves leading the Eastern N.l.H.S.C. for the first time in twenty years. The highlight of the season came when the Red Devils put their conference lead on the line by invading the lair of the South' Bend Washington Panthers. How- ever, the Devils dropped a hard-fought contest to the Panthers, 12-7. A 7-7 tie with Mishawaka a week later gave our team third place in the final standings of the Eastern N.l.H.S.C. For the season the Devils scored 147 points to their opponents' 51. They had the best defensive record in the Eastern N.l.H.S.C., by holding their conference opponents to a mere 32 points in the six conference games. Congratulations for a iob well done were extended to Mr. Bill Marston, the line coach, Mr. Newt Meer, the backfield coach, Mr. Doug Adams, the "B" team coach, and, of course, to Mr. Wayne Plew, the head coach. These men spent many valuable hours out on the field with the boys, and every player realizes that it would be impossible to field a respectable team without them. Next year's prospects look excellent, with six lettermen returning in the line and two lettermen return- ing in the backfield. There will also be some valuable material coming up from the "B" team, which com- piled a 1-5-1 record in 1952. At the end of the season Ken Schreiber was elected as the team's captain. Schreiber was also elected to a second team halfback post on the All-Conference team. Halfback George Gondek and tackle Al Lazarus were elected to their respective positions on the All-Conference first team. Gondek and Lazarus were also selected on the Associated Press's All-State defensive team. George Gondek carries the ball around his own right end in the Goshen game. 116 PINK IMPS Row I: Alex Penfold, Wayne Washluske, Tom Allen, Emil Garay, Jack Wright.

The I953 Pink Imp basketball squad wound up its season with a record of I4 wins and 5 losses, which is a very respectable record. The iunior netmen, who were coached by Mr. Doug Adams, played a very good season and must be giv- en recognition for their record, which is the result of fine coaching, practice, fight, and good sportsmanship. Basketball, which will probably always be a growing sport, should produce better players every year. Next year most of the present Pink lmps will be playing varsity basketball. With the showing our "B" team gave us this year and with a year's experience under their belts, our varsity basketball squad should have the material to go a long way toward making it rough for their opponents next year.

When Coach Hal Wegner's team put its rockets away at the end of the T952 season, the scoreboard read I win and 7 losses. This record does not show the team's true value, however, there were present a number of underclassmen, who had the,hustIe and determination but lacked only the experience nec- essary to win in the rugged N.I.H.S.C. The 'l-win-7-loss record was compiled with a team built around only two returning lettermen. These men were Jim Arnold, who played number I all season, and Herb Woodruff, who alternated with the other members of the squad in the other four starting positions. The remainder of the load was carried by Alan Kroening, Jerry Winski, Bill Papineau, Dick Cook, Tom Allen, and David Gring, who are all returning in I953. The squad opened the season with a 4 to I loss to Ft. Wayne North and proceeded to drop five straight before nosing out South Bend Central by a 3 to 2 score. They then lost the final match to Misha- waka, 5 to O, and a Wegner-coached tennis team was in the N.I.H.S.C. cellar for the first time. This fact will undoubtedly serve as an incentive for the six men returning in I953. TENNIS SUMMARY Ft. Wayne North .... .,..... 4 MICHIGAN CITY . LaPorte ......,,. . . . 4 MICHIGAN CITY. .

BASKETBALL TEAM WINS 13, LOSES 9 The 1952-53 basketball season this year was under the able supervision of our new coach, Mr. lck Osborne, who replaced Mr. Dee Kohlmeier, who was called into the navy after last year's basketball season. Last year's Red Devils gave Mr. Kohlmeier a sectional win for a going-away present. This year's net- men gave Mr. Osborne a sectional win and a 13 and 9 record for his first coaching assignment at our school. The team's 13 and 9 record includes the four games the team won in the sectionals and the single game the Devils lost to Hammond High School in its first game of the regionals. This year's regulars were Dick Korn, forward, Blake Waterhouse, forward, Brealon Donaldson, center, George Gondek, Guard, and Bill Wright, guard. On our varsity squad we also had five very good substitutes, who could go in at any time and do a very good iob. The substitutes were Herb Sperling, Dave Greer, Ken Schreiber, Ron Searcy, and Jim Jarka. The scoring this year was pretty well divided up among all of our five regulars, and no one player can be picked out as the stqr of the team. Our netmen worked together both offensively and defensively. Our offense was fast, and our passing attack was very accurate and effective, our defense was quick and stable. Despite our lack of height the Red Devils rebounded and held their own against teams which had greater height and were supposed to be better than we. During the season the Devils ran up a five-game winning streak, they upset South Bend Adams, who were favored to really trounce us, and lost only by one point to South Bend Central, the 1953 lndiana State Basketball champions. 122 Blake Waferhouse, No. 40, scores againsf l.aPorfe.

During the course of the season the Red Devils finished seventh out of ten schools in the Pre-conference meet, eleventh out of eighteen schools in the Conference meet, and fifth out of eight schools in the La- Pore Invitational. The success story from there on is largely an account of the deeds of Braelon Donaldson, a local boy who made good. Donaldson's performances in the pole vault, high iump, broad iump, and half-mile relay made him a "quadruple threat." He set the Gill Field broad iump record at 21 feet 7 inches, he set the single season Red Devil scoring mark at l54 3f5 points, and last but not least he was the State- Champion Pole Vaulter, winning at 12 feet 7 inches. Following Donaldson in the scoring race was George Gondek, a dashman and broad iumper, who scored 1 l3V2 points. The third highest total was 44M1, which was run up by Bob Brooks, who was elected captain of the team at the end of the season. Other competitors who deserve mention were Dale Schultz and Bob Kolodzieiski, hurdlers, Mike Storen and Ken Hoerr, half-milers, Carl Zeese and Don Pagos, quarter-milers, Ed Werner, shot putter, and Maynard Thompson, Bob Brooks, and Jack Wilson, dashmen. Next year's team, with eight lettermen returning, should be one of the strongest in Indiana. These men are Donaldson, Gondek, Schultz, Storen, Thompson, Pagos, Hoerr, and Kolodzieiski. The graduating seniors who earned letters during the l952 season were Werner, Zeese, Wilson, and Captain Bob Brooks. Best of luck to Coach Millbranth and next year's team!

The team, which finished in second place in the Northern Indiana High School Conference with a record of 7 wins and 3 losses, was coached by Newt Meer and Warren Jones. With tour lettermen returning from last year and other good material, the coaches whipped together a hustling baseball squad. During this year's baseball season the Red Devils defeated each of the following teams twice: South Bend Riley, South Bend Washington, South Bend Adams, and Benton Harbor. The Devils also defeated Lew Wallace and South Bend Central once, The team lost only to LaPorte, Elkhart, and Mishawaka. This year's pitching for the Red Devils was done by Ken Schreiber, a south-paw who pitched 4255 innings, gave up 39 hits, and had an earned run average of 1.64. Ken Voltz, another left-hander, pitched 10 innings, gave up 2 hits, and had an earned-run average of 2.00. Ron Flotow, our only right-hander, pitched 37W innings, gave up only 33 hits, and had the very low earned-run average of 1.31. This year's student managers were Roger Bixler, Mike Glasscott, Charles Hanke, Allan Spear, and Terry Edwards. Next year let's see the team take first place in the conference, play better ball, and keep up our usual good sportsmanship, which is one of the basic necessities of a good baseball team.

Gow TEAM WINS 8, LosEs 4, was 1 The 'I952 Red Devil linkmen finished their swinging with an 8 win-4 loss-I tie record. Coach Del Miller fielded a team that started slowly, increased its efficiency, and finished with a four match winning streak. This improvement can be very well illustrated by the three matches with LaPorte. During mid-season the Slicers trounced our Red Devils by a I4 to I score. They came back at the end ofthe season expecting to do the same thing, but the tables were turned, as our Red Devils beat the Slicers by the scores .of 8 to 7, and 9 to 6. The season started with a 7V2 to 7V2 tie with Mishawaka, then an alternating win and loss pattern followed until the Red Devils won the last four matches of the season. Dick Klemczak played the number one position, with Carl Ellison as number two, Ron Swanson as number three, Bill Kriesel as number four, and Dick Korn as number five. Klemczak and Korn are returning next year along with Bob Barr and Milt Dabagia, two promising underclassmen. These four should be enough to form a winning combination for next year's team.

APPRECIATION The members of the ELSTONIAN staff and the sponsor wish to thank the subscribers, ad- vertisers, and patrons who made the publica- tion of the 1953 ELSTONIAN possible. NEW HORIZONS Never was there path our childhood used to roam So long it led not in the evening home, Nor could the magic of the unknown track Prevail against the hearth that called us back. Over the some hill-tops, wild-rose or gray, Our evening and our twilight always lay, And when the night fell, all the unknown stars Grew homely, shining through our window bars. Now we have fared to the country o'er the hill, And unknown iourneys lie beyond us still,- Ways unadventured, countless paths to roam, But none that leads us in the evening home. Onward, not homeward, some adventure calls With every dawn, and every evening falls Over new horizons, wild-rose or gray, And old stars shining on the unknown way Strange look and far, not those we saw of old, Safe moored in haven skies above our fold.
