Text from Pages 1 - 108 of the 1942 volume:

ly fern 1 vwTv ! Here you are! This is our way of ' saying that our school is our life. Here in the halls of the Gold and Gray we learn to live in a modern world. Advertising today is the show window ol all American life. This hook is our show window pointing out our classes, our register rooms, our plays, our dances, our athletic con¬ tests. our art exhibition, our work, our study, and our play. 1 luis in the ensuing pages we give you a retrospect of the year 1941 - 1942 at Emerson High School, Gary, Indiana, to us the biggest little spot on earth. We have made a few revisions here and there to make our ads just a bit more suitable to our annual. Words, phrases, and slogans have been revised to bring home the fact that this is a personalized story of all students at “dear old Emerson.’ THKFE - ’42 EMERSON STAFF Back: Marian Miller.

I lie Chinese, a very wise and a very brave people, say that one picture is worth a thousand words. Because we believe our allies have the right idea we have brought fine pictures to tell the story of the year. No words could suggest half so well as a picture the smart, snappy, at-attention stance of the R.O.T.C. flag detail; the grace and the co¬ ordination of the true athlete: the usual geniality of the faculty; the alertness of some students; the weariness of others; the utter loveliness of Emerson girls; the handsomeness of Emerson boys; the odd angles of the old school spots. Do we seem over- appreciative ol ourselves? Maybe. Remember though that our slogan is " It pays to advertise. i Wx ' ' « i if U ' jag; 11 W§ u fll ■ 1942 ome Uxi+UGLn BRINGS YOU A REVIEW OF Y OUR 1941-1942 Y EAR IN ACTIVITIES (PAGE 24 ) IN ATHLETICS (PAGE 46 ) IN CLASSES (PAGE 66) WITH HIGH LIGHTS AND SIDELIGHTS, TOO- ' (PAGES 92 , 94 ). tlreatfa gn.pio a? OuA GUamyiiosvi “Salt of the earth’’ ancl “the strength ol Gibral¬ tar come quickly to mind as we think of our all- time champions, the faculty. Sometimes we disagree with these fine men and women who work so tire¬ lessly (sounds like a pun in April, 1942) in our interests, but we can always count on their being our champions. As a matter of fact if they would allow us to handle the sugar ration cards, we would give them their weight in sweet each weekl Mr. Spaulding has done so much to make Emer¬ son history, it is not possible to think of Emerson apart from him. Friend of student, teacher, and every employee on the grounds, he is as enthusiastic about the Gold and Gray today as he was on the day he first became principal. His favorite slogan is Anything worth doing is worth doing well.” To him the feature that advertises Emerson best is “the democratic spirit of good fellowship.” Our new assistant principal is Mr. Bohn. We hope he will be with us for a long time. Not new i has really (nine home again lor he used to teach shop work hece; he ' lived in the neighborhood: his children attended the school. We re so glad he likes us lor we certainly like him. Mis favorite slogan is You will eventually. Why not now Emerson s best advertisement is the legion ol Emerson boosters: pupils, teachers, and parents, according to Mr. Bohn. ScltcoJ, iA School floGtoi Members of the Gary School Board, or, as they are legally known. Board of School Trustees, are always busy. This year has set a new record in bu siness for them with building inspections, in¬ augurating practices recommended by the Purdue Survey, buying wisely, planning lor defense courses, registration, and sugar rationing. Because they work so hard and so efficiently, they command the respect and cooperation of all school employees. Parent Council meetings have always been suc¬ cessful and this year has been no exception. In order to properly present student opinion on school matters, student leaders have been invited to attend and give their point of view. Tom Croll and Helen Dziurdzy presented the matter of student finances and explained the different activities which ask lor financial support from the school population. At the meeting at which the picture on the opposite page was taken, Lucile Schwandt, social committee chairman, discussed the school s provision for the most popular form of student recreation, dancing. Mr. Robert Gordon, a member of Kiwanis, discussed this problem also. Parents like to serve on this committee. Mrs. Fred Scheerer who is serving her second year says she is particularly grateful for the experience. She has had two c hildren graduate from Emerson and has three children now attending. Hearing student opinion, Mrs. Scheerer says, has the effect of lessen¬ ing the set ideas parents sometimes get. Getting first knowledge about educational practices is another feature which she likes. Mrs. G. R. Colley, a new¬ comer to Gary, says the Council has been the greatest help to her in knowing the school and in meeting other parents. Iliis is Mrs. Colley’s first year on the Council. She has two children attend¬ ing Emerson. fCnfrum by 9ti JleadeM - PaAe+tti - faculty School BogAjJL Patent Council Top row: Reverend M. E. Reed. Mr. R. C. Bohn. Mr. P. G. McCoy, and Mr. R. Gordon.

Mr. Garriot, and Mr. Witt, instructional staff. According to Mrs. Wake, the technical school instructors realize they must do more than merely train a boy in manipulative skills. I hey provide some technical and some general educational bac kground since the aim is to develop skilled mechanics who can lit into the complex situations found in present day industry. Not only must graduates he high grade industrial workers, but they must he part of the society that is constantly facing and solving new and difficult problems. The program of the Gary technical classes is based upon individual responsibility and progress of the student in both shop and academic work. Naturally, some students attain, more quickly than others, a mastery of operations in machine and auto mechanics as well as in mathematics. English, and blue-print reading. These rapid workers may progress ac¬ cording to their natural ability, but the slower pupil is also given the opportunity for the mastery assigned work without demanding an un¬ reasonable speed which would lead to failure. Pupils who are discourag- ingly slow have their programs adjusted to devote more time to a par¬ ticular task so that progress in one subject may be aided while another subject may be delayed until the requirements of the trade course make it essential. With these needs in mind, the following standards for trade courses have been set up: The student must spend one-half ol the school day, or one hundred eighty minutes per day, five days a week, nine months a year, in the shop of his trade on a useful or productive basis. He must spend a minimum of thirty per cent ol the school day in the study of related technical subjects. The remainder of the day is in the study of subjects of civic and vocational value. This provides a well rounded program lor the preparations of techni¬ cal students to fill their very important place in the future. Page Fifteen McUhematioi Co n+H ice Where particular minds congregate’ 1 wo phases of work in mathematics are the development of principles and the application of them. I he principles of all the branches of the subject must be learned thoroughly, and suc¬ cessful achievement cannot he reached without the realization of the unity of all the branches. 1 he correct application of principles teaches the student to grow in the ability to accept responsibilities, to act accordingly, and to keep an open mind. Courses in mathematics foster logical thinking and the checking of all results. Business education in secondary schools offers students a general knowledge of consumer buying and spending, conducting personal business, and the discharging of civic respon¬ sibilities. These courses prepare, to a certain point, a selected group for business occupations. Standing: Mr. Chance. Miss Jones, and Mr. Connerly. Front roi eMiss hitler,- Miss Philli.ps. Miss Talhot.

These practical subjects will have an immediate application in life, opening up numerous fiejds of vocational value. Young architects and engineers are blossom¬ ing in mechanical drawing. Painting, drawing, sculpturing, and art ap¬ preciation are the specialties of the art courses. Cooking and sewing studied together as home economics are invaluable courses for tomorrow s homemakers, both boys and girls. Many “twigs” are bent toward being car¬ penters in the manual training classes. They also create an all-rouncl efficiency in dealing with future household repairs. Foundry, auto and aviation shop, machine shop, and electric shop make a start in prepar¬ ing a vast number ol the technicians that are needed for the future. Industrial arts have the prime purpose of coordinating the ideas and thoughts of an in¬ dividual with the practical physical application of them. It is not enough to have reasonable theories, we must be able to mould the ideas into a concrete action for actual benefit. Technical training now; better foundation for future. “A true patriot loves the trees and fields and expanse of wealth of his country, hut it is more important for him to love the devel¬ oped ideals which hold the nation together,” says Professor Thomas H. Briggs. With this in mind, the social studies faculty develop student appreciation of our social heritage, ideals, and present policies. History presents 1 a hroad background; economics, gives an in- ' sight into business and industry; civics is the understanding of governmental organization. Collectively, these three further the under¬ standing of modern problems and produce a vital and understanding social and political membership. 1 he present conflict is closely related to social science classes. Not sentimentality, but an understanding of our way jf life and an all-out effort to preserve it will win. We cannot advertise our way, The Ameri¬ can Way of Lilc, unless we fully understand one product, our democratic government. It is our duty to gain this knowledge in social science classes so when our turn comes —- we II ad¬ vertise with might by right. Certainly the class is not looking the South American way in the top picture. Civics class again with that far-away look. Sodat Science. “Better light — better sight” A thorough understanding and mastery of language is a potent force for good. It enables people to formulate their ideas in a way that is pleasing and understandable to others. Up¬ on this medium, to a great extent, do nations base tbeir hope of future social, political, and economic cooperation. In addition to regular English class work the library is an important tool in putting vital information at public disposal, and in produc¬ ing books for pleasurable reading. Latin, French, and Spanish enrich our own language and broaden : he understanding of it. 1 ' urther. they furnish background and a knowl¬ edge of other people’s problems in relation to our own. Spanish, now more than ever, is vitally important to foster a good policy. Language Arts training is basic in all lisement; for it makes good trade in idei sifting tbe best from tbe rest.

Specifically, science tries to build in us habit of thinking in such a way that lads ob¬ served lead to correct conclusions. Moreover, that such conclusions lead to action which preserves our American civilization. 7 Particularly, biology stresses the effect ol environment on people, and generally, the appreciation and enjoyment of being alive. Chemistry deals with chemical effects and changes, accuracy in handling apparatus, and evaluation of facts. Physics, dealing with mechanical effects, aids in the solving of problems in home and industry, as well as giving an understanding of commercial appliances. Science today; victory Jtomorrow. Keep, £metyio-+t i lime ‘Faithful and efficient forever describes the services of our staffs who do the clerical work (and a million khings more) in the offices of Mr. Bohn and Mr. Spaulding. Their patience is inexhaustible. For favorite slogan. Miss Beveridge chooses Something new has been added ; Miss Thomae, “You buy ’em, — We ll fly em; Miss Kupchik. “The pause that refreshes ; and Miss Link. “The voice with the smile wins.” Miss 1 homae thinks Emerson s best ad is the alumni group. Miss Bev¬ eridge names for that honor our Art Gallery, while Miss Kupchik thinks our behavior at drinking fountains is our best ad. We never thought of that, but we’II watch. Although Mrs. Jones has a much larger territory now than just Emerson, we feel she still belongs to us. We miss Mrs. Fonville and Mrs. Hoover. 9 tteA 4,tA. 9 vtide g kH Grit Made “The Open Hearth’ I he following high school students appeared in I he Open Hearth, a column conducted by Miss Frances Bowles, which appears weekly on the school page.

In addition, stu¬ dents reported for duty to twenty-nine firms of business and industry ' dime stores to steel mills. To Mr. Carlberg, the sponsor, each student made a detailed report of the day’s " Work. The following are quotations from these reports: l have now fixed in my mind the process o making a law for the city of Gary.

Needing money desperately, they plan to transform their house into a dormi¬ tory. Before they can meet the mortgage in this way. however, they must have two reliable cha¬ perones approved by the college dean. Receiving word that their two aunts could not arrive in time to receive authorization and assume their duties before the opening of the college term, the girls impressed into immediate service Sam and Jug Brown deceive Dean Eggleby. The efforts of the boys to be the aunts were heroic but the Dean was not deceived. Before the end. as in all regulation fairy tales and good farces, the kind, gentle Pro¬ fessor Baxter comes to the aid of the pretty coeds.

Representatives of Emer¬ son were: Lorraine Alamsha, Bob Moise, Herman Dinkin, Bcttv Turak. Tiffany Moss. Charlene Randolph, Marguer¬ ite Toigo, Loretta Ciesielski, Gloria Angolti. Zoe George, Joan Cage, Phyllis Underwood, and Margie Surowiec. Poebuf, Meet Qaoel Glut In our school there exists an honorary music and dramatic organization known as The Mask and Gavel Club. Membership requires participation in a majority of the auditorium activities; for each activity a student receives a specified number of points. If the points at the end of the senior year add up to the required number tbe student has a good chance of receiving membership. Those who have done outstanding work in the auditorium department and have attained those qualities required are given recog¬ nition by tbe unanimous vote of the auditorium faculty. On Mpy 26, Tuesday at 6:30 in the Emerson caf¬ eteria, the members were initiated at a banquet where pins were presented, symbols of achievement. The sponsor of this organization is Miss Llazel E. Harrison, auditorium “After the war. what? " This was the discussion topic presented by the Emerson members of the discussion team. The city-wide discussion meet was staged on the evening of Thursday. April ninth, at seven p. m. at Horace Mann School. The team was composed of Marguerite Toigo. Bob Moise. Louis Simmons. Loretta Ciesielski. and Her¬ man Dinkin. Other schools represented were Horace Mann, Lew Wallace. Froebel. Tolleston, Edison, and Roosevelt. The meet was conducted by a chairman from Horace Mann School, Lillian Berg. jbiicui ' Uo+t Meet Page Thirty-fic MuAic — the P ' uceiei.i. Oruj’iedie.at fecufl ' Hand MR. WARREN MR.

IF its n ivniiriN it ' s rneuovj This year’s Boys’ Band was one of the best in the twenty- two years that Mr. Warren has directed. 1 he " pep hand” really made the students come a-running” to Booster Cluh sessions. 1 his organization also played for the benefit basketball games between the Great Lakes Naval Training Station team and the St. Joseph team. Eating was another of the hoys ' talents, which showed at their Christmas Party, devouring huge quantities of pop and doughnuts. Unsung heroes of the band were the buglers, John Wother- spoon, Mary Sharp, Sheldon Green, and Ned Miller, who accompanied the raising and the lowering of the flag every morning and afternoon. The features of the band at the annual concert were a clarinet duet by Henry Gordon and James Skingley, a cornet solo by Jack MtMahon and a trombone solo by Edward Kallock. Mr. Bobele completed his ninth year as assistant director of the Boys Band and director of the Intermediate Band. Officers of the Boys’ Band were: president. Alex Lucich; vice-president. Edward Kallock; manager, James Walker; assist¬ ant manager, Stanley Vlarich; librarian, Dan Simion; assistant librarian, Ted Nowakowski; property manager, John Wother- spoon; secretary, De Von Cunningham; assistant secretary, Louis Simmons: and horn cleaner, Dan Mercer. The Girls ' Concert Band also directed by Mr. Warren, and one of the few girls’ bands in the country, had a very success¬ ful year. Miss Kotora, the assistant director, completed her seventh year with the Girls’ Band. Both the cornet trio by Mfery Sharp. Irene Kuchta, and Phyllis SaffVan, and the trombone solo by Dorothy Oeth. were enthu¬ siastically received by the audience at the annual concert. Officers of the Girls ' Band were: president, Mary Sharp; vice-president. Betty Fogler; manager. Irene Kuchta: assistant manager. Audrey Gardner; secretary, Isabelle McGregor; li¬ brarian. Louise Rhoades; property manager, Lomadell Leech; assistant property manager. Daisy Shabaz. The Emerson Concert Orchestra, under the supervision of Mr. Warren and Miss Kotora. finished the year very satisfac¬ torily. At both concerts the performances was excellent, includ¬ ing such features as a rendition of the famous “Slavonic Rhap¬ sody No. 1.” by Friedeman. at the winter concert, and “Slavonic Rhapsody No. 2,” by the same composer, at the spring concert. Several other highly-acclaimed numbers were a violin solo by Harold Alterwitz, a flute duet by Marian Menzie and Sarah Garner, and several beautiful piano solos by the president, Nell Warda.

Federal May 13. 1 CmesiAian ' i Glubi Now- Game in fyowi Neat Packaged- Our socialites really spent an eventful eve- ning at the F.A.B. and the Tri-Sigma Formal Dance on February 7, 1942. It bas been the custom for each of the two clubs to hold separ¬ ate dances; but this year a twin dance was arranged. Appropriate to the month of Febru¬ ary, hearts and cupids served as decorations for the “Cupid’s Ball.” The double line was led by Diane Orlich. president of the Tri- Sigma and Delphine Smith, president of the F.A.B. The biggest event was the conga line with the proper music furnished by the Mel¬ ody Masters.” Mrs. Pierce and Miss Tappan, sponsors, looked on approvingly. Tri-Sigma s social year started off with a bang” at the Halloween dance held at the Y.M.C.A. ITi e music for this festive occasion was supplied by a juke-box. Following this gay celebration came a I hanksgiving Party held in the club room. Iliis affair was a pot- luck. In the spring a drive was held for the sale of Defense Stamps. The fall initiation was held in the home of Betty Turak. vice president and social chairman of the club; the spring initiation was held in the home of Diane Orlich, president. The F.A.B., the oldest girls’ club of Emer¬ son, has an annual custom of feting all fresh¬ men girls at the “Freshmen Tea.” At this tea. girls who are interested in knowing what s what at Emerson really get the information. Heads of the various organizations identify themselves and their groups. Sweet, indeed, was the F.A.B. candy sale. The profit of this year’s sale was one of the largest. Marilyn Quin and Marcy Pfeil thought the candy was good. OopsI 1 mean the candy sale. Marion Plummer, chairman of the formal dance com¬ mittee, did an excellent job in making the “Cupid s Ball a big success. If you should happen to peek in at the Y.M.C.A. on a night that an Emerson Hi-Y Party is scheduled, you would be surprised at the amount of fun. Dancing is the main attrac¬ tion on these occasions, but often games play a big part in the success of these parties. Wayne McKinney was president of this year s organ¬ ization; Richard Lee, vice-president; George Nabhan, secretary-treasurer; James Corns, sergeant-at-arms. The Roselette Club, which is the only freshman-sophomore club at Emerson, proved that freshies and sophs can have just as good a club as the upper classmen. Their activities are chiefly social. The biggest event of the year was the formal initiation, which was held in the club-room. The following were officers of the club this year: Phyllis Miller, president June Townsley, vice-president: Patricia Egan, secretary; Patricia Coleman, treasurer: Miss Jones, sponsor. 7 4 Suftna Top row: Jerry Boswell.

Stajjjj Plucji ' 42 " £ mend.o-nian " We chose as our campaign slogan, " Forty-two is the hook for you.” having determined on that and several other plans in our three summer meet¬ ings. At our annual benefit show, Friday, October 3, Alex Crossman was master of ceremonies, doing bis usual best, which brings down the house any old day. Other entertainers were Diane Orlich and Mar¬ garet MacKenzie, songbirds; “The Worm Turns, a gay giddy offering by Mrs. Palmer’s Dramatic Club; Irene Kuchta, accordionist: Rena McMahon and Jane Ann Legg. twirlers; and Harold Alterwitz, violinist. Our good friends had donated the usual number.of attractive door prizes, which, true to form, were won by boys when they should have gone to girls, and vice versa. But who are we to change Fate? Besides, nothing delights the audience more than a girl winning suspenders and a boy winning a compact. On October 29. starting at 1:45 and ending with a dance in the Girls’ Gym after the banquet, we held a publications conference. Eight Gary schools’ publication staffs were in attendance. Professor John E. Stempel of Indiana University was the speaker at the banquet, at which Edward Madden presided. The speakers at the conference preceding the dinner were Mr. Horace Ward, Mr. Joe Janowski, Mr. Hoyt Hurst. Mr. Joe Todd, and Mr. Fred Noer. Mary Gregor was general chairman. After the selling campaign ended on Friday. February 13. we dug in deep to pull out the elusive adjectives, adverbs, and verbs that tell our story. The Social Committee gave us a donation of fifty dollars. The Dramatic club not only put on the skit for us. but they bought the scripts. The art classes made posters for us. Dorothy Messina, Matilda Helwig. Betty Lou Page, and Ruth Well¬ man directed eighty girls in candy sales for our benefit. We say our hearty thanks to all of these, and to Miss Reynolds, Miss Sherman, Miss Ban. and students and faculty who have helped us in producing this years book. jbeAianed fa Tt Uuusuf Our Defense Program has made us realize more keenly the worth of our extensive and intensive physical education program. Getting more sports on the school program and work¬ ing to have more students participate in the sports activities is the goal today. Sports for everyone’ and “Dancing for everyone are the watchwords now. It is our patriotic duty fyaatball Coach Rolfe, veteran member of the Emerson coaching staff, led the 1942 football varsity close to victory in the city championship race. " Tough, but oh so gentle " is the ad which the fellows say best describes A. J. Be¬ sides steak dinners, his favorite dish is a winning team served with the N.l.H.S.C. crown, topped off with the skill in coaching, the hoys rate him skill in roaching, the hoys rate him high as a real friend. When Coach Moore left for the Navy. Coaches Rolfe and Connelley took over the basketball team which made heavy dutv for all with regular classes, football, class teams, and track. Coach Connelley is the young¬ ster of the department, hut there is nothing young about his cross country and track techniques. We note no trace of his usual bashfulness when he is out clocking his hoys or showing them how something should he done. Coach Werner we welcome as our newest addition to the group of Emerson mentors. Fondly known as " Pop,” Coach Werner in addition to his regular classes in physical training, teaches safety and sponsors the Patrol Boys. You will find his ' picture on page 57. Go. Emerson, go!

The guests of the banquet were two former Emerson stars: Tom Kuzma, Michigan’s star sophomore, successor of Harmon, and Bob Johnson, top Big Nine Conference center from Purdue. Lyle But¬ ton was presented with the most valuable player award of the Gary High Schools. Russell Bailey and George Mihal were elected co-captains for -42 to succeed John Paligraph and Ed Carnahan. Many thoughts also found their way to Emer¬ son’s battle scarred old gym: shower room, dressing room, rows of double deck lockers; running out to the field on a sparkling day, feeling like pass¬ ing the pigskin a mile, kicking it twice that far, overtaking it. and making a spectacular catch. What memories! The Golden Tornado opened the 41 season on September 15 holding the tough Proviso Tiger Outfit, champs of Chicago’s Suburban League, to a scoreless tie. On September 20 the Terrific Tornado " blitzed” a bewildered Hammond Wildcat eleven 20-12. Came September 29 and they continued their winning ways, sweeping over a highly touted Washington of East Chicago team, 14-0. The Tornado, handicapped by a wet and slippery field, overcame the fighting Crown Point Bulldogs 19-6 on the Bulldog’s home field on October 4, 1941. On October 11 Froebel fell before the pulver¬ izing power of the Golden Tornado, 21-0. On October 18, Emerson traveled to Rockford and came home with a 6-6 tie even though it was raining cats and dogs. October 25 is a significant date in the Jolting Tornado’s history. They suffered their first and only defeat of the season by the eventual State Champions, the Lew Wallace Hornets. Score: 19-6. As a tonic for their first reverse, the Fighting Tornado came back on November 5 and rolled over the Horsemen of Horace Mann. 34-12. On November 15, the Terriflfic Tom-toms of the Tornado unleased their greatest array of offensive weapons of the season in their final game, annihilating Tolleston 54-7. In both these games it seemed that Emerson had so much stock in the goal line that they could camp on it whenever they pleased. Final standing, 6 wins, 2 ties, 1 loss. Carry on, you Tornadoes!

One of the traditional features of the basketball season at Emerson is the game in which the Ins play the Outs. The Ins are the hoys who will he here next year and the Outs are those who will he lost through graduation. Confidence lit the stage when the Outs matched their long forged skill against that of the on-coming Ins, to show them how much training and hardening they needed. The result was not expected. The Ins out-shot, out-maneuvered, and outcalssed the Outs. The finale was 51-35. The Outs won to the extent that they had proof that the Emerson tradition in sports would he ably car¬ ried on by these stalwarts. Fighting for the Ins were Mihal. Hovanec, Ro¬ mans, Olis.

HebeloeA Make (lec id Sixteen wins in eighteen contests! There you have the very impressive record of those unsung heroes — The Reserves. Starting against Roosevelt of East Chicago with an easy 23-15 victory, they swept over Lowell 40-30 and Whiting, 35-28, before feeling the lirst stings of defeat which were provided by a powerful Michigan City Five, 22-20. The score tells a story of the nip and tuck pr ogress of the game. Then followed another string of victories. These valiants roasted Roosevelt of East Chicago again, 36-25; toppled Tolleston, 24-20; walloped Lew Wallace 23-9; crept by Crown Point, 22-20; and murdered Morton of Hammond before losing their second game, 31-37, to Whiting, a return engage¬ ment. Then came the storm the fans are still talking about. Froebel fell. 30-26; Tolleston tumbled, 22-17; Froebel, 29-26; Lew Wallace beaten 31-8. In the final chapter the Mighty Michigan City fell 35-29 before an avalanche of baskets, thus avenging the earlier chapter of record. " 1 hrec times and out” worked in the case of Tolleston with a win of 56-21. Mann was mauled 27-10 and a dive- bomb on Wallace ended with a score of 28-9. Nice going! A taste of glory at a young age is the making of a leader. Thus with seventeen wins and only two defeats the frosh are in the leader-making business on a large scale. Their armor is now built for next year. Then we shall enjoy seeing them polish it as reserves, getting ready for the test beyond, the regulars.

On March 21, Emerson lost to North Side of Fort Wayne. Then Coach Connelly’s boys took third place in the Gary Indoor Meet on March 24 and sixth place on March 28 at the Froebel Invitational Meet at Notre Dame. Following this our luck turned, and the freshman and sophomore team heat Chesterton on April 4. Six days later, Hobart bowed to our thin clads. Continuing this string of victories, the Emerson tracksters, on April 14, look one from Washington, E. C. At the Triangular meet on April 18. Emerson came in second. As we go to press, we get word that the boys came in third in the East Chicago Relays, April 25. Highlight of this meet for the " E” boys was the breaking of the medley relay record of last year by six seconds making the new record 8:16.6. Anderson. Plunkett, Cifali, and Burns were the team. The two mile relay was won by McVety, O’Connor. Cifali. and Burns. In the half mile relay, we were fifth with Anderson, Kolettis. Gasper, and McLaughlin running. Zeman tied for third in the pole vault. The team shot putters. Mihal. Corwin, and Sobal had a second in this event. A fourth in the team broad jump went to Paligraph, Dumigan, and George. In the football relay. Swan, Manos. Rhetorik, and Miller had a fourth also. The turnout for track has been unusually large this year. Another significant fact is the great number of underclassmen getting their starts to make future track history for the Gold and Gray.

Pauline Hammako, with 2800 points, and Helen Polmchak, with 2500 points, were the happy receivers. Mildred Organ, freshman, was recognized for making 1,000 points. Miss Viola Vogt left us to get married and settle down in Columbus. Now we have Mrs. Bessler pitching for us. Big-sister — little-sister parly rolled out a path for the G.A.A. social events. Pledges had to serve their rushers for one week during initiation. " Robie” got a daily supply of fudge. Our hard times party on St. Pat’s day was a turnout of latest vogues. Games were played and seniors were awarded lollipops for first place. The best dressed bum of the evening, Pal AVjilkcr j.assecL her chocolates to fellow si hoWores. irfayiO, at the G.A.A. banquet, honors, monograms, and new officers took the lime¬ light.

Miss File and Mrs. Bessler, the ro-sponsors. opened the 1942 swim session with Janis Shuster, head of swimming. High spot of the team was the Telegraphic Meet held on April 10. These girls swim against time and the school with the lowest average of time is the victor. Louise Meers entered the 20 yard crawl race and Marilyn Lee swam in the 20 yard racing-back event. Margaret Colleran is freshman captain: sophomores have Eflanche Sacketos; juniors boast of Blanche Predaina captain, and daredevil Janis Shuster heads seniors. Kathleen McGuire was chosen the most promising freshman. The freshies not only have an abundance of enthusiasm but also a wealth of aquatic talent. Alice Condo steps in the lead for outstanding diving. Again the four lithesome figures of Schwandt. Laird, Lee, and McGuire splash their way to the finishing mark of the interclass races. " Practice makes perfect” and they are by the lime the inter-school races with Froebel. Wallace, and Horace Mann are under way. P„,,c Sixly-lour Back row: Doris Reaves.

Miss Reynolds presented the basket halls to them on Friday. March 13. as a token for what they have accomplished not only this year, hut the four years they played. laughed, and scored together. 1 hese six-scoring aces have heen victorious in every game played in intramural varsity contests. Delphine Smith, Helen Nowak, and Dorothy Komor¬ owski put more splashes in the bucket than all the ( oke ads in the magazines. Irene Kuchta, Carmela Stramaglia, and Dorothy Batalis pursued their for¬ wards all over the floor. The class of “39” voted them as the most promis¬ ing freshmen in the G.A.A. Not only were they excellent in athletic ahility, hut are also leaders on the G.A.A. hoard. This year s tryout for basketball was as big a boom as boys’ basketball. Helen Nowak, head of basket¬ ball, had a hectic time picking out the four class varsity teams. Managers of the varsity teams were: Adeline Kuchta. freshman; Catherine Sefton. sopho¬ more; Mildred Zivonovich, junio r; Josephine Gen¬ duso, senior team. Freshies and juniors broke even in the intramural games. Sophs won three games; lost one. The senior varsity team conquered all their opponents. Adeline Kuchta is stepping into the shoes of her sister, Irene, as a crack guard. “Taffy” Sefton sinks them when she puts her height to it. 1 he Dziurdzy-Kerlin combination made Horace Mann guards woozy. A mixture of the six sharp shooters and the other senior players gave bitter memories to other varsity teams. " Josie” Genduso gave Horace Mann a dose of her one-hand shooting. Page Sixty-five OuA fyouSl oUiCfitA. The wise ones say the four highs are these: Hands, Head, Health, and Heart. We agree hut we would like to add the Super Seniors, the Jolly Juniors, the Sharp Sophomores, and the Fascinating Freshmen. Some of our very happiest Emerson memories are those connected with our particular class. We remember our own class best because we knew them best since we worked and played together — dancing, boosting class plays and teams, picking orchestras, decorating for parties and dances, select¬ ing class leaders, and doing the many things that need to be done to bind a class together. Our heads, our hands, our heart, and our health will always be at the call of dear old Emerson.

Page nighty-nine CATHERINE ZINANNI ZtVKQ ZIVONOVICH Senior MemosU i Starting as pamphlets, advanc¬ ing to newspaper ads. then to hill- hoards, and now on a nation-wide hook up; that is how we may trace the progress of our present senior class. Their hoard of directors were Edward Lehocky, president; Spiro Cappony, vice president; Delphine Smith, secretary; Irene Kuchta. girls treasurer; and Tom Croll, hoys treasurer. Sponsors of this product were Miss Newton, chairman. Miss Ban, Miss Tinsman, Miss Ade, Mr. Flinn, Mrs. McCarnan, Mr. Rogers, Mrs. Bessler. Mr. Connelly, and Sgt. Souders. They organized their campaign at a meeting held on October 1, 1941. At this meeting the dues de¬ cided on were comparatively small, due to the more than successful Rose Day, which they conducted last year. Eleven thousand, one hundred and eighty-one roses were sold, the amount exceeding all pre¬ vious records. They seem to believe in do¬ ing things not only well, hut ns soon as possible, as evidenced by their presentation of the class play “Goodnight. Ladies” and the homecoming dance which followed it, on November 7. Both were suc¬ cessful due to the splendid work of members of the cast, their di¬ rector, Mrs. Daley, and the com¬ mittees of students which included the following: play committee George Klimis, chairman, Diane Orlich, Gloria Angotti, Richard Lee, .loe Sanok, and Tiffany Moss; dance committee, Spiro Cappony, chairman, Mary Robinson, James Dumigan, James McConnell, Peggy Nealon, Eleanor Casbon, Helen Gregor, 1 lomer Wells, Helen Nowak, Ethel Strain, Arleigh Long, Dorothy Sherman, and Dorothy Batalis. Faculty advisers for the dance were Miss Vogt and Mr. Rogers. Following this annual event was the Senior Post-Holiday Dance, held on January 17, 1942. Sponsor of the dance was Miss Ban. Mem¬ bers of the committee were Carmela Stramaglia, chairman; Boh Mont- fort, Betty Woodward, Gloria Pow- Ien. Violet Petrovich, Joann Landes, Don Burgess. Stanley Frankowski, Ruth Wellman, and John Karagas. After all this fun and frolic comes the never-forgotten time, graduation, the time when this now good selling product prepares to go out and surpass all previous records. But they also want to leave behind them something that will make their past record remem- U a hull lad bered. The committee to select this memorial consisted of Matilda Hel- wig. chairman: Jerome Bilski, John Sheperd, Marion Menzie, Babettc Sinister. Tony Ahcldua, Ed Car¬ nahan. and Joan Landes. The sponsor was Miss Tinsman. The memorial was presented on Class Day. June 5. and the class will and testament was also read on this day. Sponsor of Class Day was Mrs. McCarnan. 1 he committee was composed of Mary Gregor, chairman: Charlene Randolph, Barbara Carlherg, Betty 1 urak. Lewis Simmons. Dan Simion, Dorothy Messina, Joseph lenta, James McConnell, Eleanor Casbon, Jennie Mack, Glenn Col- hun, Diane Orlich, and Helen Gregor. Baccalaureate, closely fol¬ lowed by the commencement exer¬ cises will he vivid in our memory always. The following people did their best to make it so: Mr. Flinn, sponsor of Baccalaureate, Daisy Shabaz, chairman, and Adeline Sepiol, Phil Smith. Dan Mer¬ cer, June Romans, DeVon Cun¬ ningham, Russell Buehrle, and Tom King; Mr. Rogers and Mr. Con¬ nelly sponsors of commencement, Betty Lou Page, chairman. Arleigh Long, Bonnie Louks, and Eugene Wise. Their linal fling was the Senior Farewell held on June 15. A com¬ mittee headed by John Paligraph, and sponsored by Miss Henrietta Newton, included Helen Munyas, Carmela Stramaglia, Bill Malhc, Benny Bizek, Marian Plummer, George Lengyel. John Apathy, Frank Byers, Dorothy Komorowski, John Gutowski, Mary Robinson, Boh Emerson, Irene Kuchta, Del- phine Smith, Mike Kane, and Chauncey Hunker. These students have been on the honor roll every semester: Diane Orlich, Charlene Randolph, Marian Miller, Marion Menzie, Joe Tenta. Last, hut not least, salutatorian, Marian Virginia Miller; and vale¬ dictorian, Joe Louis Tenta. IN MEMORIAM To live in hearts we leave behind, Is not to die. — T homas Campbell YOLANDA BRUNO HELEN STEFANELLI March 9, 1922 July 19. 1921 January 50, 1941 December 2. 1939 B eA,t by edt First rou Hmling down . . . ♦ DELPHINE SMITH A ; magnetic personality, a fine sport, ant! an able leader characterize Del to a " T.” Her chain of friends holds many lints. Secretary of Senior Class. Co-editor of Annual Stall. President of F.A.B., and Treasurer of G.A.A. were positions held hy Del. Mmm, what a girl! ♦ EDWARD CARNAHAN Ed showed us his great brawn hy playing good football all year round. With bow and arrow he proves to he a good marksman as well as a top notch hunter. Strong, silent,. Ed shines in his studies as well as on the grid¬ iron. We have it on good authority that Ed is not as bashful as he looks. ♦ MARY CRECOR Gregor I. as she is called is willing to do anything she is asked. Greg is peppy and happy-go-lucky. Everyone is captured hy her personality, and she is captured hy Nelson Eddy. Annul Staff. G.A.A.. and Trl Sigma kept Mary busy. She will soon be crowding the career woman list. ♦ TOM CROLL Versatile Tom Croll. heller known as " Abner. " did a super job cheer leading. In moments of relaxation. Tommy listens to Glenn Miller. For his occupation. Tom has choosen to he an artist. Gene Autry is his hero and Brenda and Cohina tied as his choice for heroine. Don’t blame the education system for that. ♦ DIANE ORUCH Diane, brown-eyed and vivacious, is one of our most talented senior girls. Being a leader as well as a good follower, she led the Trl Sigma on lo new heights for the year. Her talents as a singer was also established early in her high school days by her lead in the operetta. lOI .- ON FHE. Her hero and heroine are Romeo and Juliet. Second row, reading dou n . . . ♦ JOHN SHEPHERD " A wise man holds his longue and opens his ears. " So might it he said of taciturn John. He is an indispensible basketball man and a high ranking member of the Senior Honor Society. I lis ambition is lo become a doctor. I lis service should be in great demand. ♦ HELEN NOWAK You can always depend on seeing dark-haired " No " al the school dances. Dick Jurgens is ever popular with her. and her dancing shows she is as smooth us he. Envied hy all the girls is her basketball technique. I Irr afhbition is lo he first a seamstress umLTntec a hol!W JS l.inc forms on right, hoys. fj ♦ JOHN PALICRAPH l Co-cuplain of the foolbalL sqoad. " Polly has made a great name for himself. His ever smiling face will linger in the minds of his fellow class mates. Junior Class secre- of his time. The contemporary female population ol Emerson can ' t understand why anyone should gaze on Charley Atlas whdtt the Paligraph physique can he admired. ♦ IRENE KUCHTA Irene has a steady diet of sports. There she is not adept a ” captivating and makr No one would want . the Angel in the Christmi ♦ HERMAN DINKIN ( 1 lerman came to E lished himself securely In rMditori ship standing. The Rotary c in Business. " took a great deal of energy. The R.O.T.C. and the Annual Staff are • interests also. Chili-con-carne is his greatest dish, forsaking all succulent steaks for its South American lung. Third row, reading down . . . ♦ TIFFANY MOSS Charm, daintiness, and amiability are attributes of Tiffany. One thing she never does is to argue, which, according to the contemporary Emerson male population, makes her unanimous choice for the ideal woman. As Mary in the Christmas Pageant she is one of the year s outstanding memories. ♦ FRANK BYERS Byers, the lad commonly called a " Beers. " has personality plus. " Beers " hopes to coach basketball at his own Alma Mammy. Emerson. Glenn Miller and his crew have " Beers " as a faithful fan. Frank would wrestle with a deluxe fried chicken any day of the week and twice on Sunday, l ie likes to dance and to wolf. ♦ VIOLET PETROVICH i. the suntanned, smiling, all-round he-man ' s girl, likes howling, dancing, and roller skating: lopped off with a good course of chicken in the rough. " Pet” is still romantic enough to read " Gone With the Wind " and envv Scarlet O Kara, fri Sigma, G.A.A.. and Annual Staff take up Vi’s school time. ♦ LEWIS SIMMONS V, and Annual Staff take up Vi ' s ' l.ooee. ' " a member of the honor society and R.O.T.C.. likes I he Philadelphia Symphony. “The Star Spangled Banner. " and hamburgers. Lewis has ambitions of being slate governor some day. He is an ardent baseball fan. He names Fanny May as his heroine. Pretty tough on sugar rationing, we’d say. ♦ MARIAN MILLER Capable Marian Miller shows her wide variety of activi¬ ties by being: vice-president of the Senior Honor Society, girls ' treasurer of A Cappclla, member of Tri Sigma. Annual Stall, and Ring Committee. She chooses green for her favorite color. Marian would live in a world of happiness if she could always listen to Laurence Welk and eat hamburgers. ♦ (OE TENTA Joe is the first and only student from Emerson to receive a scholarship lo Indiana University. During this year he has held four jobs simultaneously and acted human. No mean achievement that! Joe s sense of humor never fails. I le s the kind of student that teachers write home about if they write home. ♦ DOROTHY BATALIS Dorothy rates the title of " Ace " because of her fine scholastic and athletic ability. She is liny hut mighty. Dorothy ' s the kind of gal who could have a dale with Stirling I layden and never mention it. Modest is our I )orothy. ♦ EDWARD LEHOCKY Edge is tall, dark and dashing — hither and yon. Dancing is his hobby. His dramatic talents ought lo bring amer Brothers rattling a contract under h is nose. Not the least of his talents is the ability to make friends. A good salesman too. ♦ BETTY TURAK Betty ( lings lo " Stardust” as her song of songs. Plays, poetry meets, and discussions took a lot of Betty ' s time. Her very nicest memories have their roots back in her sophomore, junior, and senior class plays. Betty ' s ambition is to become a nurse. While she is studying about thyroid and the other glands, some unlucky fellow will idly twiddle his ' thumbs. ♦ ED BURNS Talks says that Ed Burns is about the friendliest fellow in Emerson School. In his many activities he is noted for his talent in working with people. President of the Board of Control and top man in cross country and track makes F.d one of Emerson s lending citizens.
