0 s The SCRAPBOOK for 1928 Published by the SENIOR CLASS Emerson High School Gary. Indiana T HE nucleus of every great n a¬ tion ' s prosperity has been their ships. Triremes, gondolas, galleons, clippers and schooners, each suited to r the distinguishing characteristics of their country, climate, and era, came into existence, served their purpose, and passed away. Now a newer era has dawned, rough, coarse, produc¬ tive, and has spawned the ore-boat. To the squat, blunt ore-boat, which carries Gary’s products to all corners of the world, bringing back wealth and happiness, and to the just as productive days of high school life, P the Scrapbook Staff dedicates this volume.

Remember Mr. Spaulding and his Grapevines? Remember the past educational week programs we have had? When first started we were little bits of Freshmen and our displays and exhibitions were “put on” in downtown store windows. Then for the next two years we had great long parades with banners and floats. Remember? How could one forget after walking (?) miles in them! Then, our Senior year displays and exhibi¬ tions were exhibited in the new Memorial Gym. Bigger and better every year. That’s the Class of ' 28. Then, too, remember the dreadful strike? And the strikers, and strike leaders and the “scabs”? We’ll not soon forget that, will we? Drucilla Miller. Lucia Beddow. We, the Senior Class of Emerson High School, having completed our career in a blaze of glory, desirous of being remembered by posterity, and being of sound mind, memory and understanding, do hereby make, decree, and publish this, our last will and testament in manner as follows: FIRST: We do decree that we, as a body, be cremated in the blasts of our own hot air, in Gary Memorial Auditorium. SECOND: We do decree that all unjust debts which we have incurred in the course of our career, either to our faculty, our schoolmates, or to each other, be paid in full to the last “kopeck,” that our ashes may rest in the same peace we have been accustomed heretofore to enjoy. THIRD: As to such estate as we have purloined during our sojourn in Emerson High School, we do devise and bequeath to our beloved Alma Mater, and to all such as may enter her portals in after years, the following bequests, to-wit: Item:—The beloved memories and fond associations which cluster around the present edifice of learning, including the elaborate and mervelous works of art, which we leave behind, on the various articles of furniture. Item:—The clarion sound of the bell, which almost human, brings us re¬ lief, misery, or fire-drills. Item:—Our beloved faculty of all shapes and sizes (including the office force) the only one of its kind because of its democratic attitude toward all Seniors. Item:—The drinking fountains choicely inlaid with chewing gum. Item:—The morning dash for classes from the first corridor at 8:19. Item:—The smoking rule, to be obeyed by others as faithfully as it has been by us. Item:—The meeting place down by the foot-warmers for the new Seniors, and other loafers. Individually we bequeath the following: Item:—Sam Chase leaves his “sax-appeal” to Nelson McCollem and Von Hall. Marge Kraynak, yelling as usual, insists that her talent along that line be left to Ruth Patton. Bob Davis leaves to his sister, Sara, his beautiful blonde curls. Marge Sullivan, Lenora Brown, and Laura Boyton will their capacity for " sticking together” to Virginia McLaughlin, Jane Ransel, and Beth Owens. “Swede” Hedman bequeaths his well worn Hi-Y jacket to Ross Bain, if Ross can get it from the girl who happens to be wearing it at the time. Ollie Hu- minsky, Drucilla Miller, Betty Lucas, and Marge Kraynak will their ability to “trip the light fantastic” in Spice and Variety to Chuck Funkey and A1 Gor¬ man. Lucia Beddow, Lois Jacob, and Lydia Stentz leave their wonderful adhe¬ sion to the South Chicago glue works. Dwight Hockensmith and Milton Rosen give their power and efficiency to “shift scenery” to John Van Liew and Don Henderson. Zella Mae Spencer and Ray Dauer will their straight “A” report cards to Alberta Snowden and Ethel Comstock. Joe Loftis, Elio Largura, John Krueger, Harold Avery, Max Summers, Vic¬ tor Marovich, Jay Kelly, and Glen Waser leave their efficiency in carrying the old pigskin to the would-be varsity football stars. Jack Keener bequeaths his dilapidated megaphone and husky voice to Stew¬ art Martin. Grace Laue and Reva Goldman wish to bestow their combined heights to Mary Bertha or Ruth Longacre, who would probably appreciate it more. Ray Dauer. Louis Harmon. Ray Altenhof and Glen Waser leave their ability to ‘‘slish” the basketball to any or all of the lucky survivors of basketball tryouts. Ann McLelland, Kay Oglesby, Dee Jackson, and Fay Laurent give their drags with the faculty to Louise Stentz and Francis Johnson. Abe Marcovich, with both arms full of Spice and Variety girls, has decided that James Newsom can be the “E” editor next year. Leon Nelson leaves his time-and-record smashing high school career to Glen Verplank, if he can catch him. Faye Cheadle gives her naturally (?) curly hair and blooming complexion to Maxine Bitner. Moose Kincaid wills his undescribable “It” to Dave Templin. Marty Schewanik desires that his talent to sing be left to Sidney Hyman.

After passing through the usual routine, I gained for myself the title of Junior Class. My history for the past year, I think, is worth writing about. Ross Bain was elected to boss me through the year with Ina Whitby as his helper. Dorothy Aldridge was given the task of keeping my diary, and Eleanor Smith and James Newsom were to hoard my sheckels. These helpers worked very hard, but some fell by the way, and I had to appoint Harry Hosmer to be the boss’s helper, and Sylvia Sandberg to be the keeper of the story of my private life. The class rings were my first work. The ring committee did a good job of picking the rings, and many were sold. My next achievement was the class play. Miss Paul picked “The Beggar on Horseback” for our presentation. Then came the Junior Benefit show. The picture was “West Point” and the ticket sale gave me some much needed aid for the Prom. The Prom came. It is the one dance of the year where a good time is had by all every year, and this year was no exception. As I think over the glories of the year I realize how much it means to have a good sponsor to keep me on the right track, and we had a good one, Miss Daniel. Thus, amid the honor and glory of a year well spent, I go home and sleep till next September, when duty will call and I shall have to come back to my work of fooling the teachers into thinking I know something when I don’t.

Way inside each felt a tapping, tapping in his little heart, ‘‘You are now a Sophomore!” Forth we called our strongest for to lead us on this longest And adventurous a year, while Miss Newton watched o’er all. Well do we remember on a day in bleak November, When we gave a play of Rinehart’s, Rinehart’s ‘ Bab” in our school hall. And again Time’s voice so distant muttered in his dreary call— “Safe so far. Oh! Sophomore!” Then we all our efforts bent, then we all our money spent, On a dance to be most gorgeous of all Sophomores gone by. In a gym enhancing, laughter there among us glancing, We thought life was all for dancing, dancing ’neath a silver sky, But the voice of Time so hoary from his height did coldly cry— “’Tis illusion. Sophomore.” Yet our faces still beguiling life to look upon us smiling. Sought to gain its favor lasting thus to boost us evermore, But our memories are crowded and our happiness is shrowded, By the thought that ’tis that each shall be a Sophomore. Still ’tis best to be advancing than just stay a Sophomore. Once we are but never more. Eleanor Wirt. FRESHMEN i Freshman Class History The “Spirit of Emerson” hopped off at 8:15 on September 6, 1927, on the transatlantic flight from “Freshman Year " to “Sophomore Year” over the “Ocean of Study.” On this trip, the “Spirit of Emerson” carried 316 high school students as passengers. Bruce Falconer and Kathleen Donavon had charge of the mechanical work of the machine, while Coach Lowell Sparks acted as pilot. For the amusement of the passengers, “The Cap and Dagger Club” was organized, and many activities were carried on. Numerous contests were held during the trip. Among the first was the Music Memory Contest in which Ruth Berkowitz, a passenger, took part. Laura Ralph and Eileen McAllister, passengers, were chosen to represent the " Spirit of Emerson” in the Discussion Contest which was held on Friday, March 16, 1928. On December 13 and 14, 1927, the “Spirit of Emerson” landed at the Emerson airport and the passengers attended the performance of the annual “Spice and Variety.” Some of the passengers were happy to help do their share towards its success. “Seventeen,” a play by Booth Tarkington, was given by the “Cap and Dag¬ ger Club” on April 20, 1928. During this eventful trip, plans were made concerning the presentation of " Grape Vines” as the graduation gift of the passengers of the " Spirit of Emer¬ son” to the school. The actual planting, however, was not done until June. 1928. So with the many regrets that a very delightful trip was ended but with joyous anticipation of the next flight from “Sophomore Year” to “Junior Year,” the 316 passengers alighted from the " Spirit of Emerson” June 25, 1928, as " Sophomore Year.” Laura Ralph.

Lindbloom, one of the Tornadoes’ greatest rivals, came to Gary with determination to conquer Emerson, but did not threat¬ en the supremacy of the Tornado. In the second game of the season, Emerson beat East Chicago with a 19-6 victory. This is the first time Emerson has been scored on for five years by an Indiana team. In the muddiest game of the season, Muncie, Emerson’s down-state rivals, held the Tornadoes to one lone touchdown. In the fourth game of the season Emerson, over-confident, went to Misha¬ waka and received a setback of being held to a tie, 0-0. The fifth game brought Emerson back to triumph over Wabash with a 33-0 score. Ernie Gardner’s flashy open field running was an outstanding feature. Lady-luck deserted Emerson in the Mooseheart game, and took Illinois by the arm to lead them to a victory of 7-0 over Emerson. Since the Tornadoes failed to consider the Hammond squad ' s serious threat, they were held to a tie of 6-6 in the windswept gridiron of the Industrial High in Hammond. Still in the rough from their tie with Hammond, Emerson was defeated by their arch-rivals, Froebel, by a score of 22-14. Hollander’s thirty-yard run for a score, and Avery’s eighty-yard run went uncounted. In the last game of the season, Emerson held the upper hand through the entire game with. South Bend, and defeated the Bears by a score of 9-0. Be¬ hind perfect interference Waser galloped sixty-seven yards to a touchdown through the entire South Bend squad. BIG TEN STANDING W. L. T. Pet.

Starting the season with only a sprinkling of veteran material remaining from last year’s regional champions, Coach Brasaemle early appeared to be well on the way toward a repetition of last year’s success. Whiting and Mishawaka were disposed of by decisive scores, and then came the first of the defeats from Washington. The Norse followed with victories over Elkhart and LaPorte before bowing to Jefferson of Lafayette. Froebel was toppled by a top-heavy score and Hammond, Goshen and Horace Mann were accorded the same fate before Muncie invaded the Steel City to eke out a two-point victory. Plymouth, Michigan City, Valparaiso, Froebel and South Bend were the victims of the Norse machine before Washington again proved itself a better club by reason of a two-point victory. Valparaiso and Central of Fort Wayne were defeated in the closing games of the regular schedule. Merrillville was no barrier in the first round of the sectional tournament. Horace Mann provided considerable more opposition than had been expected and Froebel proved more of a barrier than the Norse could hurdle in one season. .y SCRAPMBODK With the defeat by Froebel in the sectional tournament the Norse packed away their short pants to await the opening of another season. Close of the season left the Norse with a seasonal and tournament record of 17 victories and 5 defeats. Second place in the Northern Indiana High School Conference bas¬ ketball race was won by the Norsemen with a “Big 15” record of 14 wins and 2 defeats, both of the latter being administered by Washington of East Chicago.

GIRLS’ ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION A Girls’ Athletic Association, to be known as G. A. A., has been organized this year. Its membership consists of girls who have made athletic teams which compete in the inter-class sports. Each member works for an E. H. S. mono¬ gram.

The production was Gil¬ bert ' s Sullivan’s " Mikado. " The story goes thus: Nanki Pooh, who is supposedly a wandering minstrel, is madly in love with Yum Yum. but to no avail because Yum Yum is to be married to Ko Ko. her guardian. Nanki Pooh is about to kill himself, after becoming desperate, when interrupted by Ko Ko. who is Lord High Executioner. He tells Nanki Pooh that he will let him marry Yum Yum. if in a month ' s time he will be willing to be killed bv him. as he had killed no one. and the Mikado had ordered his head to be taken if he had not executed someone within the month. Just before Nanki Pooh and Yum Yum are to be married they discover that there is a law which reads. " When a man is beheaded his wife must be buried alive. " Yum Yum refuses to marry Nanki Pooh under these conditions. When the time comes for Ko Ko to kill Nanki Pooh he ean not bear to do it and so makes out an affidavit of Nanki Pooh ' s death and then tells Nanki Pooh that he can marry Yum Yum if he will only leave the country. When the Mikado arrives he reads of the execution of Nanki Pooh, who is really his son. who had left his home to travel. He then tells Ko Ko that he has killed the Heir Apparent, which means that Ko Ko must be put to death. Before Nanki Pooh and Yum Yum leave on their honeymoon. Ko Ko tells Nanki Pooh that he must come to life again in order to free him. Yum Yum and Nanki Pooh appear before the Mikado and are forgiven. The Emerson Music Department has just finished one of the most successful seasons in its history. The bands and orchestra won the Northern Indiana Contests. The grade and high school music memory each took first place in their division. Under the auspices of the Gary Public Schools’ Music Depart¬ ment, Kathryn Witwer, grand opera star and Emerson graduate, was engaged to sing at the Memorial Auditorium. A new Orthophonic Victrola has been purchased from the funds of the department, and the success of the Music Memory team is a result of its use¬ fulness. I dj err - ■ — xrA n-Vvt- -» — The Boys Concert Band c F Continuing their success of the past years, the Emerson Concert Band was well started on its way to the national championship, by taking first place in the Northern Indiana Band Contest. The band has received new uniforms and they have made a marked improvement in the appearance of our boys. Much of the success of our band is due to the unfailing labors of Mr. Warren and Mr. Hendrickson, as well as the never-say-die spirit of the band boys. i ] □ □ 7 !  • £-«-to| « The Girl’s Concert Band Springing from almost absolute obscurity, the Emerson Girls Concert Band confirmed the faith of Mr. Warren by taking first place in the Northern Indiana Band Contest. A noted improvement may be seen in the playing of the band, the interest seems to have revived, due to Mr. Warren’s and Mr. Hendrickson’s untiring efforts. The Girls’ Band will go to Elkhart to compete in the state finals. - . . - e. - ■Ct- (I (J [D 0 D 3 1 Orchestra F:or the first time in the history the Emerson Orchestra won the Northern Indiana Music Contest. However, this has been expected, as the school has eagerly watched the progress of the orchestra. Under the direction of Mr. Jaehne. a new leader, many fine musicians have been developed. Great things are expected of the orchestra in the future, as it is entered in the state contest at Elkhart. Indiana. Auditorium League Contestants Lake County Contestants Besides participating in the Auditorium League activities, Faye Cheadle and Sydney Hyman were chosen to represent Emerson in the Frcebel-Emersojn Declamatory Contest and the Lake County Contest. A distinct revival in Auditorium League activities has become apparent this year. Poetry and Music Memory POETRY MEMORY This year, Emerson was very well represented in the Poetry Memory Contest. Due to the untiring efforts of the training teacher, Miss Lortz and the members of the team, Emerson secured first place. Emerson entered three teams in the Gary Music Memory Contest and was fortunate in securing first place in the Senior High School Division. This entitled her to enter the team in the In and About Chicago Music Memory Contest. There we won first place. This was accomplished only through the con¬ scientious work of the music teachers, Miss Viant, Miss Sayers, and Miss Greenhill, and the team. The team was composed of Elizabeth Buchsbaum, Charles Seamon, Olga Nikolich, Ruth Diamond, and Virginia Benoit. The substitutes were Ruby Stephenson and Mary Catherine Taylor, who had both been members of the Gary team. Virginia Benoit. MUSIC MEMORY Emerson Board of Control Under the more than a mere body.

A ' + n of Amen 3a £.c BLatKsLef HEL£N L.OOKE0- ' WLU , r ICt ftlOf Ninety-three ■ Dances BAND DANCE Emerson ' s Concert Bands gave their third annual band party on December 9. The lower gymnasium was a pretty scene for the affair, decorated in Xmas colors. Sam Chase’s orchestra furnished the music, and both young and old bandmen, ranging from 8 to ?? years, danced and were pleasingly entertained. Mr. and Mrs. Warren, followed by officers of the band, led the grand march. Along with the favors, music and games, came marvelous punch, which was enjoyed mostly by the " little fellows.” It was rumored that this year’s band party had surpassed any of the previous years. SOPHOMORE DANCE On the eve of January 21, the girls’ gym was the scene of an outdoor danc¬ ing party, being decorated in blue and silver, the class colors. The blue being used as a background to represent the sky and the silver in the form of stars. It was a beautiful night both indoors and out. Sam Chase’s orchestra furnished the music for the pretty affair. With Miss Newton as Class Sponsor, and with several good committees the dance was and could be only an assured success. The favors were in the forms of pencils in the school colors. Noise-makers, confetti, and caps also added to the amusement of the younger classmen. R. O. T. C. DANCE The cadets in the R. O. T. C., with the help of some of the high school girls acting as sponsors, gave an informal benefit dance at the K. of C. ballroom on February 10. Decorations were not needed as the beautiful ballroom is completely furnished, which is a " benefit” in itself when it comes to giving a dance. Frank Colling’s orchestra furnished the music which could not be beaten. The favors and refreshments made the dance a complete success. It is said that the R. O. T. C. rather favor benefit dances, but you can’t blame them when you consider the crowd that attended this first affair of that kind. JUNIOR PROM The first and only spring formal of the year was given in the Masonic Temple on May 19. And was it a grand success? Well, I’ll say, and how? The Juniors always have tried to surpass the Seniors in giving a dance, and we all believe that this year they came very near doing just that. The grand march was led by Ross Bain, president of the class, and his partner. Miss Daniel was Class Sponsor, and it was through her and the committees who worked hard on the dance that it was made one of the best Junior Proms ever. The favors were attractive and seemed to please all attending. The orchestra furnishing the music was an out-of-town orchestra. SENIOR FAREWELL And, last but indeed not least, comes the dance given by the Class of ’28 as their fare well to friends, teachers, Alma Mater or what have you? The dance this year was held at the Lake Front Pavilion on June 16. The dance was well attended by both graduating Seniors and members of next year’s graduating class. Mrs. Pickard has sponsored the Senior Class for many years and each year gives her help in making a bigger and better dance. The favors, orchestra and refreshments will not soon be forgotten. We believe this year’s farewell was the very best yet. MICHIGAN . . . AND THE STORM Black, threatening clouds Hanging low in the sky .... The Bessemer flaming dull red Against the black .... Whirling sands spurred onward by a Menacing wind from the Northwest .... Sullen wastes of water sending white-caps Dashing to the shore in abandoned fury .... The eerie cry of a gull Flung back from the lake .... Ragged flashes of lightning .... The ominous roar of thunder .... Great, splashing drops of rain .... Michigan .... and the Storm! Edith Jenkins.
