Elston Senior High School. To accomplish this task, the 1954 staff chose a theme with you in mind. In fact, you r are the theme. . I Who are you? Your friendliness was observed in gatherings by locfgiers, ',- 2 in the study hall at noon, and by the post of your favorite hall patrolman, , Perhapsiyou recall the apprehensive sophomores as they worked on their party. The juniors were kept quite busy with concessions, their play, and the prom. Throughout their last year, the seniors became aware of such things as class standing, senior sponsor, room, and finally graduation. ' You took pride in a basketball team which was tops. You attended pep sessions, assemblies, games, and dances. In the quiet and cheery atmosphere of the library, some of you read industriously or labored over term papers. Others merely browsed or viewed the displays. Our student body is composed of leaders and followers, athletes and spectators, and those who barely pass and othe-rs Who aim much higher. You have all played an important part in making an impression. It is our hope that in later years as you read the ELSTONIAN it will help you to recapture many of the impressions of the 1953-1954 school year. f' I U17 fgijroiidivfvggui xp . ff H6 Q if .,,X'jjg,il,ff airs 9 Q' X 2 f' f 1 f f I 'Q' . , ,.

Schroeder. There are Iive members of the Board of School Trustees: Mr. Eugene Peck, presi- dentg Mrs. Robert Reppert, secretaryg Mr. William Flotow, treasurerg Mr. Wilbur K. Schroeder, and Mr. William Maddocks. Being a member of the Board gives each of them a very responsible position, for members handle issues which concern the public schools of Michigan City, the spending of money for supplies, and the hiring of teachers. Assisting the Board are Miss Alma Schilf, Miss Marcia Meads, and Miss Betty Jasicki. Among their duties are the issuance of school employee payrolls and financial reports and the authorization of pensions. Their office is in the junior high school building. Miss Marcia Meads, Miss Betty Jasicki, and Miss Alma Schilf. 10 SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOGLS It is quite a task to keep our school system run- ning smoothly. No one recognizes this fact better than Mr. M. L. Knapp, who has been our super- intendent for fifteen years. Before beginning work as a school administrator, he obtained an AB. from Indiana University and an M.A, from Colum- bia Universityg he has done post-graduate work at the University of Chicago and at Purdue Uni- versity. He also was the principal of our senior high for thirteen years. Under his leadership our school gained high recognition in the scholastic field. We receive many benefits by the use of new and better educational methods. Although his office is located in the junior high school building, Mr. Knapp comes into contact with more students than one would think. In the elementary grades he makes these contacts by means of classroom visitation. Through the teachers and school publications he learns about junior and senior high students. He comes to know personally those who are an outstanding success or those who are in serious trouble. Mr. Knapp spoke at one of our pep sessions this year and has met once each semester with the group of cadet teachers. As secretary to Mr. Knapp, Mrs. Edward Hibbs has a variety of duties. In addition to general office work, she checks attendance data and super- vises the distribution of school supplies. Mrs. Hibbs and Mr Knapp V. ASSISTANTS Miss Kemena and Miss Tamlin. Miss Ruth Ke-mena and Miss Lucille Tamlin are the nurses for all the Michigan City public schools. They give physical examinations to boys who participate in sports. They also give aid to students who become ill While in school and test sight and hearing. Director of Guidance is the oilicial title of Miss Bess Day. She counsels in all the schools in Michigan City and is known to us as one of the staunch promoters of Career Day. Mr. Robert Bucy, attendance officer, checks on school absentees and issues work permits. l I l Mr. Bucy bw' IU PRINCIPAL For the past fifteen years Mr. Cecil F. Humphrey has been principal of the Isaac C. Elston Senior High School. During this time our school has Won state-Wide rec- ognition. Mr. Humphrey possesses a Ph. B. and an M. A. degree from the University of Chicago. He was the principal of the junior high for thirteen years. Our school is very fortunate to have such an understanding and helpful person as Mr. Humphrey at its head. In addition to his administrative du- ties, there are many other tasks to be performed. As secretary to Mr. Humphrey, Mrs. Humphrey has much more to do than the average secretary. She sells school supplies, checks the attendance of students, and serves as a general information bureau for the students.

Row 2: Mr. Miller, Mr. Sparks, Mr. Kuszmaul, Mr. Sellers. Some of us rushed, some of us crept, some of us were happy, and some of us were fearful. We were now in senior high. The clamor resounded from wall to wall as We entered the study hall to elect our sponsors. Out of the melee emerged the defenders of the Sophomore Class, Mrs. Morgan and Mr. Miller. After this furor had subsided, we noisily chose the leaders of our class: Blake Waterhouse, president, Nancy Booth, vice-presidentg and Terry Edwards, secretary-treasurer. On one occasion in our sopho- more year, however, we were relatively quiet, that was the night we held our Kiddy Prom, the Sophomore Party. The theme of the party was GAITE PARISIENNE. "Coca Cola, pop corn, ice cream bars, potato chips!" These were the passwords of our junior year. After a year of sound and fury, We were rudely awakened by the hard yet enjoyable work in connection with the financing of our future activities. Not all of our frivolousness had escaped us, because we used some of it in making our Junior Play, GREEN VALLEY, a bang-up success. Hearing about all our foolishness in pre- vious times, you might think that our prom would be a minor chaosg however, things were just the opposite on the night of,May 29. Beauty and thoughtfulness prevailed the entire evening as we enjoyed the ELSTONIA SHOWBOAT. The leaders for this year of hard work and pleasure were Blake Waterhouse, Paul Pittsford, and Bill Wright. Again we chose Mrs. Morgan and Mr. Miller as our sponsors. 22 SENIOR CLASS HISTORY MRS. SPRAGUE MR. MAXEY The Class of 1954 has a right to be proud of its accomplishments in the senior year. These achievements would not have been possible without the guidance of our two sponsors, Mrs. Marion Sprague and Mr. Sheldon Maxey. There were three who carried a large amount of the responsibility: Paul Pittsford, president, Blake Water- house, vice-president, and Jania Martin, secretary-treasurer. Under this leadership the Class started a precedent of having a Senior Banquet, which was held on May 14. Ranking equally in recognition is the Senior play, LADIES OF THE JURY, which was performed before a capacity crowd on March 19, and the publication of the 1954 ELSTONIAN. I Successfully ending our high school career was the meeting in the study hall as one large group the final semester. On the following pages you will find pictures of the members of the graduating class except for the few for whom we have no pictures. They are Gerald Ellis, Her- bert Gardner, William Geleske-, Garry Hadders, Charles Hanke, Bennie Mack, Jon Papineau, Conard Parker, Robert Parker, Betty Haggins, and Betty Westerfield. PAUL PITTSFORD JANIA MARTIN BLAKE WATERHOUSE President Secretary- treasurer Vice-president 23 JUNIOR PROM Row 1: John Kowalski, Ned Westphal, Bill Papineau, Bill Thornburgh, Eddie Hall, Ed Oszust. Row 2: Darlene Mahlka, Sandy Ferguson, Barbara Simpson, Nancy Fisher, George Baranowski, Judy Morrison, Jania Martin, Ronald Searcy, Rosie Linde, Don Ungurait, JoAnn Meska, Paul Pittsford Esther Richter, Herb Sperling, Diana Miller, Tom Goch, Pat King, Audrey Hardt, Sally Holston Marva Jane Haas, Don Shedrow, Rosi Leeds, Marvin Kominiarek. The "Elstonia Showboat" docked May 29, 1953, at Barker Hall for the Junior Prom. After an appetizing banquet a delightful program was presented. The acts were replicas of the vaudeville shows on the old "floating" theatres. Surely this event will be firmly entrenched in our memories. 24 UNIOR PROM Yxovga 060063 CB' tor Y5 s - W Jiexx Z O1-lc Down upon the Swanee River" "Ridgerunners" One, two, three, four.

Elston was given in the form of the Senior Class production, LADIES OF THE JURY. Under the direction of Mrs. Morgan and Mr. Fisher the play was presented on March 19, 1954, in the junior high auditorium. The comedy revolves around deliberations of the jury over the verdict in a murder trial. For the members of the capacity crowd it can truthfully be said that the evening constituted one of the more enjoyable events of the year. The boss! Play practice at nine-thirty.

Continuous mistakes on the part of Lucy added to the hilarity of the play, es- pecially when Ricky was trying to make a good impression on his boss, Mr. Littlefield, so that he could land the job as manager of the Tropicana, the place Where he worked. Fred and Ethel Mertz, the folks from the downstairs apartment, were usually in with Lucy trying "to make a good impression." When young Peggy tried to corner her crush, Ricky, into falling for her, it was comical to see Ricky squirm out of it. The part that really took the cake Was Lucy's economizing by purchasing a freezer in which to store meats-and ending up by locking herself in. At a crucial moment Lucy emerged, resembling a female Jack Frost. Stage manager was Lee Dabagia, with Paul Witte, Karen Schoenning, and David Gring as stage hands. The job of prompting was given to Suzanne Spinning. Under the direction of Miss Luck, with technical Work supervised by Mr. Fisher, the play was termed a success by a full house.

UNIOR CONCESSIONS 0 We juniors worked very hard at selling concessions so that we could give a prom for the graduating seniors and also publish the 1955 ELSTONIAN. To earn the necssary money, we sold at all football and basketball games and at school, both at noon and after school. This was Mr. Belden's first year as sponsor of concessions. The managers for the first semester were Glenn Bridwell, orders, Sandra Haughting- ton, personnel, and James Hurst, finance. For the second semester Marilyn Flood was order and personnel manager, and James Hurst, finance manager. Bill Fleming was in charge of the coke machine for both semesters. 55 JUNIOR SNAPS L x ls 6 h- 56 C ,cl , QNYQ0 Ieflflly 1 N Doing housework, Lee?

To guide us through our new adventures, We chose Miss Robinson and Mr. Wegner as chairmen of our sponsors. An important event was the Sophomore Party, with "Dude Ranch" as our theme and a square dance as the highlight of the evening. This exciting event took place in the New Auditorium on October 3, 1952. Our junior year has been filled with preparations for many exciting activities. In the fall We gave the three-act comedy, I LOVE LUCYS, We also sold concessions at all the games and at school to receive money in order to entertain the seniors at the annual junior prom.

Cheerleaders in action as they lead the cheers of the crowd. This year, supporting our football and basket- ball teams, we were fortunate in having a group of fine cheerleaders. The cheerleaders were chosen in the fall, and we were lucky in not losing anyone because of failing grades. The students trying out for cheerleading ap- peared before the Red Derbies first, and then the ten best picked by the pep club appeared before the student body in an assembly. The student body chooses six regular cheerleaders and two alternates, in case of failing grades or other misfortunes. Everyone noticed the new skirts Worn by the cheerleaders for the basketball season. They looked very nice and added to the "color" of our games. 110 RED DERBIES School Spirit! That is one of the aims of the pep club of our high school. The Red Derbies, sponsored by Mr. Miller and Mr. Buoy, displayed their spirit through many different channels. The pep sessions, dances, and all projects undertaken by this club were huge successes. The annual Basketball-Football dance, honoring the players of these sports, climaxed the activities of the year. From the study hall at four o'clock on every other Tuesday one could hear the cheerleaders presenting new yells or practicing old ones. Ofliccrs for this year were Jania Martin and Sandy Ferguson, co-chairmen, Shirley Schlegel- milch, secretary, an d Maureen McMillan, treasurer. Mr, Miller addresses a Red Derby meeting in study hall.

Our pep sessions are evidence, usu- ally loud, vigorous evidence of this fact. Much credit for the well-planned pep rallies must be given to the Red Derbies and Delbert Miller, the Club's sponsor. The Red Derbies spent long hours working so that City's cheering section would be second to none-.

"You've just got to hear the cute thing one of my third graders said this morn- ing! Well, we were right in the middle of the reading lesson, and one of those precoci- ous little eight-year olds piped up with . . . " This is the sort of exclamation you'd be likely to hear if you were to tune in on the conversation of a group of cadet teachers. These aspirants to the noble career of teaching claim that helping a regular teacher train her brood in the 3 R's is lots more fun than work - and they really take their duties seriously. The cadets report to their chosen classes in the public grade schools each day and spend two periods with "their" children. During the course of the semester each cadet is expected to accomplish one definite classroom project. It may be directing the youngsters in a little skit or help- ing the group with a special art or craft activity. The purpose of having the cadets Work on these projects is to help them under- stand what children enjoy doing and what capacities children have at their respective grade levels. 119 SZQQSE5' wa 0-in-LX? me 5 'x EXTRA-SPECIAL EVENTS Ellen Stephens.

JEANNE AND JOSEPH ABRAHAM Two persons who caused a French-speaking fad in school this year are Jeanne and Joseph Abraham, two post-graduate students from the province of Quebec in Canada. The Abrahams spent this year in Michigan City visiting their uncle, Monsignor Michael Abraham. Last year they were in Lebanon and studied at a university there. Thus, they are tri-lingual. They speak French, Lebanese, and English. ASSEMBLIES A woman who has made teen-agers her career was a much appreciated assembly speaker. Val Lauder is a columnist for a large Chicago news- paper. Her column "The Keen Teens" is a favorite with City students, Mr. Hadley Hepworth, an English actor and former Scotland Yard undercover man, enrobed to play that noble teacher, Mr. Chips. The announcement of an assembly is one of the greatest causes of general exulta- tion in high school. Convocations are indeed popular at City, and no wonder. Who could blame a student for rejoicing upon hearing that he will be able to get out of that tough chemistry class for at least one day? Long live assemblies, and may there be more of them! l Bill Pohl and Blair Purcell question Gilbert Mr. Llewellyn Heard, a research chemist with Johnson of La Porte, who is a repatriated prisoner the Standard Oil Company, surveys the damage of the Korean War.

This remark could very Well have been made by a member of G.A.A. to a fellow teammate. The Girls' Athletic Association, commonly known as G.A.A., is open to any senior high girl who likes and wants to participate in one or more of several sports. In- cluded in the variety of sports offered are soccer, hockey, deck tennis, volley ball, basketball, and baseball. Every year, and this year was no exce-ption, the G.A.A. girls go caroling at Christmas time. The girls chose Judy Bartels president, Mavis Brant vice-president, and Diane Gardner secretary-treasurer for the entire year. G.A.A. meets regularly on the second Thursday of every month, but often a special meeting is called to organize teams and to select captains. For every game in which a girl participates, she receives five points. At the end of the school year one girl is chosen by all the girls as the outstanding athlete. She is presented a sweater at the award assembly. Last year's Winner was Mavis Brant. 128 HGCKEY Sticks on Mary! This expression is heard often during a hockey game on Gill Field.

The Red Devils' six conference wins included victories over South Bend Washington, South Bend Adams, Elkhart, LaPorte, and South Bend Central twice. City lost to Elkhart, LaPorte, Mishawaka, and South Bend Riley in conference play. Non-conference victories included a win over the rugged Indiana State Prison nine, a squad composed of many former professional and semi-professional players. Student managers of last year's baseball squad were Mike Glasscott, Allan Spear, Clem Periolat, Phil McIntosh, and Dick Collins. Last year's Red Devil nine displayed a fighting spirit and good sportsmanship all through the season and was. a team of which our school should be very proud. 1953 BASEBALL SUMMARY WON-10 LOST-6 MICHIGAN CITY Gary Lew Wallace .........

Coach Del Miller's 1953 golf team broke even in fourteen matches, winning seven and losing seven. The Red Devil linkmen went on to finish ninth in the sectionals. Dick Klemczak held number-one position on the golf squad for the second consecutive season. Jim Snyder played the number-two spot, Dick Korn was number-three many and the two Dabagia brothers, Lee and Milt, held the fourth and fifth positions, respectively. The Devils' seven wins included double victories over both Niles and South Bend Adams, single wins over Valparaiso and South Bend Riley, and a victory in a triangular match with Gary Lew Wallace and Valparaiso. The golf squad compiled a very respectable record and with luck proposed to do even better this year.

Our record, really nothing to squabble over, turned out to be four wins, four losses, and a tie for fourth place in the NIHSC with Fort Wayne North Side. Hustle, talent, and determination were ours, but we lacked a little in experience, as there was only one letterman left from last year, and that was Alan Kroening. First post was held by Steve Bard, Dave Gring and Bill Papineau had the second and third spots, respectively, and Dick Cook and Alan Kroening rounded the team out. Number one doubles were Steve Bard and Alan Kroeningg Dave Gring and Bill Papineau, number two. TENNIS SUMMARY WON-4 MICHIGAN CITY ...,.. LaPorte ...,...,........... Adams ,,l....,,.................

FOOTBALL The record of our Red Devil gridders in 1953 - won none, lost eight, tied one - wasn't very impressive, but we must remember that figures do not tell the whole story, as may be proved next'season. At the beginning of the season, before a plague of injuries hung over the team, the Devils played a solid game, tying with Gary Tol- leston in a mud-slinging contest. Then Wham, bam, out of a clear blue sky our bad luck began with injuries galore. Practically all of our key players were injured at one stage of the game or an- other. Another thorn in our side was the inexperience of the players. They were all game and did their best, but they just lacked that needed experience that makes a team a winner. This thought leads us to see a bright star in the future for next year's team. Two reasons why this star shines even brighter are that ten lettermen are re- turning next year and some very valuable material -is coming up from the "B" team. Congratulations are in order for Mr. Bill Marston, the line coachg Mr. Newt Meer, the backiield coachg Mr. Doug Adams, the "B" team coachg and, of course, Mr. Wayne Plew, the head coach. Many trying and valuable hours are spent shaping up a team, and without these men it would be an almost hopeless cause. Bob Kolodziejski was elected captain of the team at the end of the season and also received his position, tackle, on the All-Conference second team.

Over hill, over dale, and on down the dusty trail these boys run for two miles steadily, showing who- has the most endurance. The first man completing the course gets one point, second two, and on down the line until all are in. At the helm of the team was Coach Elmer Millbranth. Honors go to Richard Strakowski for being top scorer, with a 2.9 average per meet, and also for being captain of the squad. Harlan Hunt finished second in every match but one. Jim Lippens, Bruce Fisher, Jack Wright, and Bill Grantham completed the team. CROSS COUNTRY SUMMARY WON-5 LOST-6 'Fort Wayne North MICHIGAN CITY 'Mishawaka ......,.........., .....

The 1953-54 Pink Imp basketball squad, coached by Doug Adams, almost equaled the varsity IGHIIIYS fine record by winning nfteen out of nineteen games. The Imps defeated Hammond Clark and Gary Wallace to win the championship in the Michigan City "B" team tourney. Their only losses were suffered at the hands of LaPorte and three South Bend schools - Central, Adams, and Washington. Many of the 1953-54 Pink Imps will be on the varsity squad next year. Because the Imps com- piled such an outstanding record this season, prospects are bright for another fine basketball team next winter.

Under the expert leadership of Coach Ick Osborne, the Devils racked up thirteen consecutive vic- tories before suffering their first defeat and finished in a tie for second place in the eastern division of the Northern Indiana Conference. The Red Devils could truly be called a team without a star. Coach Osborne used six players alter- nately, and all of them could be depended upon to score ten points or more in almost every game. Six foot-two inch Harlan Hunt was City's regular starting center, and Dave Greer, who is also 6'2", alternated between the center and forward positions. Other forwards were Herb Sperling, the Devils' number two scorer, and Dick Cook. At the guard positions were Bill Wright, City's leading scorer, and Blake Waterhouse, an outstanding defensive player. The Red and White began the '53-'54 cage season with four easy victories before being pressed by Gary Emerson in a 73-71 win. The so-called "experts" predicted the Devils' victory skein would end there, but City surprised everyone with victories over South Bend Central's defending state champions, highly-rated East Chicago Washington and South Bend Adams. Washington and Whiting again fell before the City machine, as the Devils copped first-place honors in their own holiday tourney. The new year was ushered in with three more City victories, including a win over a. powerful Elkhart squad. The Associated Press rated the Red Devils as the State's number two basketball team at this time. Like all good things, however, City's victory string had to come to an end. Mishawaka inflicted the first defeat on the Devils, 59-57, in an overtime game. After topping two old rivals, LaPorte and St. Mary's, City dropped its second game of the season to Fort Wayne North Side. The Devils ended their regular season with three more victories and entered the state tourney as the number six team in Indiana, possessing a record of eighteen wins and two defeats. In the Sectional City breezed to three easy victories over Hanna, Westville, and Union Mills, to win its third consecutive sectional crown. City entered the Hammond regionals without the serv- ices of Dick Cook, who was a victim of the mumps. In their first regional test, the Devils edged a tough little Hebron squad, 58-56. City had high hopes of winning its first regional title in nine- teen years, but Hammond High, led by Gib Blackmun, ended the Devils' dreams by whipping the Red and White, 67-49. City led throughout most of the first three quarters, but in the final chapter, Blackmun began hitting from all over the floor and compiled a total of twenty-nine points. After the end of the season the City cagers were honored by the Red Derbies and the Bench- warmers' Club with a "Salute to the Red Devils" held in the auditorium. All of Michigan City was proud of the fine showing made by the 1953-54 Red Devils. Three of the six regulars on this year's squad 'will be back next season, and prospects look good for another great City team.
