The success of their Prom was due to the diligent work of the members of the Junior Class Prom Committee: Ted Charlebois, chairman; Gene Carra- bine, Delores Bozich, Ziggie Niepokoj, James Johnson, Martha Garner, Ar¬ thur Evdokiou, Pat Soutsas, Nick Gurgevich, Lucia Barnes, Bob Hall, De- ores Cole, Helena Malast, and sponsored by Miss Roma K. Anderson. Their first class assembly was held in the auditorium on October 12. Of¬ ficiating at this meeting were Arthur Evdokiou, president; Nick Gurgevich, vice-president; Martha Garner, secretary; Delores Bozich, girls’ treasurer; Gene Carrabine, boys’ treasurer. Delores and Gene were kept busy collecting the dollar dues so that the Juniors would be eligible to attend the Prom. Live and Learn’’ In December the Juniors received their class rings which were the center of attraction for months. The Junior play, “Brother Goose,” was successfully presented on March 3. June 8, Junior Stunt Day, was presented in the audi¬ torium. The Juniors also took part in Senior Class Day on June 13, when Arthur Evdokiou, Junior Class President, received the sceptre of leadership from Melvin Edwards, Senior Class President. The Class of 1951 made a big contribution to the athletics of the school. There were eight Juniors on the varsity football team, three Juniors were on the starting basketball five, the track team was aided by five members of the Junior class, and six Juniors were members of the varsity baseball team. The Seniors received their diplomas on June 19 as the Juniors watched, thinking of their class motto, “Live and Learn.” MISS ANDERSON RECISTER 310 First row: V. Ranzino, D. Wiser, C. Karski, A.

U A ND from the glory of the past we get a Xl new future.” With this, the class motto, in mind, the shy, bewildered Freshmen of 1946 advanced to become the proud Seniors of 1950. As Seniors they have dreams of a golden future and memories of tasks well done. A lifetime of memories were packed into four short years. The Freshman Frolic . . Sophomore Hop . . . Junior-Senior Prom . . . Class dues . . . Football and Basket¬ ball games . . . Dances . . . Class Plays . . . Christmas Pageants . . . Baccalaureate . . . and finally a hushed and solemn commencement, have all contrib¬ uted to make four unforgettable years at Em¬ erson High School. The year of 1950 finds them reaching for a star ... a star to guide them through the uncertain future.

For when the One Great Scorer comes to write against your name, He marks—not that you won or lost—but how you played the game. —Grantland Rice Emerson’s Golden Tornado T HE Emerson Tornadoes opened their 1949 season September 9th, playing against the Panthers of Roosevelt. The Seniors of the pre¬ ceding year had held most of the starting posi¬ tions. This left the team with only five return¬ ing lettermen. Confronted with bad breaks and ill-timed injuries, their season’s achieve¬ ment was: four wins and five losses. For the Freshmen, the season was hard, grueling, and seemingly endless.

They finished the season with a record of 12 wins and 8 losses for a .600 average; their conference record was 6 wins and 5 losses for a .545 average. Having five returning lettermen plus many aspirants from the previous year’s reserve team, Coach Klug sent a well balanced team into the scuffle and tussle of the season compe¬ tition. The Norsemen had their good and bad moments, but their finest endeavor of the sea¬ son was the 38-31 dressing they handed Horace Mann in the second round of the sectional tournament. Mann had previously beaten the Norsemen twice, were the favorites, but proved no match for our boys. We They 40 Elkhart-§? 34 Fort Wayne Central-dV 56 Roosevelt E.

T HE City Indoor Track Meet was for Emerson’s thinclads the beginning of a fast and high stepping season. They placed third in both this meet, and the Conference Indoor Meet which was held one week later. Though they lack strong field event men, early season indi¬ cations are for a successful ’50 track squad. Times That Are Encouraging Donn Gunnett, 10. in the 100 yd. dash; Duke Edwards, 14.7 in the 120 yd. highs; Duke Ed¬ 60 wards 23. in the 200 yd. lows; Jim Johnson running very close in both. Mile relay: Drys¬ dale, Evdokiou, Gunnett, Edwards, ran a 3:29.8, all members have made better than 52.6. Mike Prokop and Bob Hall have both run the mile under 4:50. Ziggie, 5.9 in the high jump, Steve Mast under a 2:05 half mile. Times and distances are very encourag¬ ing, prospects seem excellent for a particularly bright track picture. T HIS year Emerson had one of their finest Cross Country Teams. In the regular sea¬ son they piled up seven wins and lost only two. They placed eleventh against terrific competi¬ tion in the Hobart Invitational and emerged eighth in the Conference. The City Contest in which they gained a splendid third place, saw Steve Mast break Emerson’s record for the two miles with a smashing 9:57 performance. Major letters were earned by Bob Hall, Steve Mast, David McCorkle, Darrell Previs, Tony Radinsky, and Bob Wallace.

A pproximately 95 % of the girls at Emerson belong to the only organization for the girls, the G.A.A. The Girls’ Athletic Association is a tradition, and is just as im¬ portant to the girls as football is to the boys. The G.A.A. offers five main sports: speed- ball, basketball, volleyball, baseball, and swim¬ ming. In each sport eight games are played by each individual to earn 100 pt. Varsities are chosen and are primarily composed of girls 64 who excel in a particular sport and in sports¬ manship. Also traditional of the G.A.A. is their an¬ nual Couple Dance and Banquet. At the ban¬ quet the monograms are given to the girls who have earned 1500 pts. The loving cup is al¬ so awarded to the outstanding Senior girl. Under the guidance of Miss Reynolds, our sponsor, the year was replete with enjoyment for all the girls. C.A.A.

These in¬ cluded: “Rising of the Moon,” “Our Town,” and “Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Theatre parties were organized and the class went into Chicago to see the latest Broad¬ way plays. The class saw Thomas Mitchell in “Death of a Salesman,” and Katharine Cornell in “That Lady.” The latter proved to be quite an experience, for the class received an invita¬ tion from Miss Cornell enabling them to visit her backstage. The annual picnic; the final exams, and the farewell to the seniors in the class, ended the eventful year.

F OUR years of intensive, yet entertaining work, a congratulatory letter ,and a cli- matical banquet merited a glorious end for those who qualified entrance into the National Society of the Masque and Gavel. The nine new members were especially proud, because they made the new “stiffened” requirements. The requirements for entrance are now: four years of auditorium and a vocational diploma; participation in class plays, the Christmas Pa¬ geant, and “Everyman”; work in debate, dis¬ cussion and interpretation; an original speech entered in an oratorical contest; and the unan¬ imous consent of the auditorium faculty. SENIOR DRAMATICS OFFICERS Jackie Cobbler -Treasurer Bill Lautenbach Vice-President Bettie Jenkins Secretary Nick Franke President SENIOR PLAY T HE gay and colorful “Meet Me In St. Louis” was the senior play. The nostalgic setting and Mid-Victorian costumes vividly brought back memories of the 1904 World’s Fair. The enthusiastic cast was inspirationally directed by Mrs. Palmer. JUNIOR PLAY T HE greasepaint gang from the Junior Class successfully presented the three-act comedy “Brother Goose” on April third. The story of an orphaned family mothered by the eldest brother was enthusiastically received as well as enacted. Miss Julia Alford was director. 72 A CAPELLA CHOIR—Top picture, front row, left to right: Gootee, Shirley, Belenko, Stewart, Jurdzy, Galnares, Cox, Greenwald, Bentley, Minnelli, Depanion, Doumis, Kottaridis.

T HE Girls’ Band has grown, from yester¬ day’s humble beginnings, into today’s splendid musical aggregation. Thirty years of perseverance, patience, and arduous labor have been Mr. Warren’s answer to the herculean tasks which confronted him in the creation of bands and orchestras. Each year the most diligent and promising players of both the boys’ and girls’ bands are drafted into Emerson’s gay and lilting, melodi¬ ous Marching Band.

Leadership, Courtesy, and Drill The program of the National Defense Act issued by order of the Secretary of War, in 1946, was “to lay the founda¬ tion of intelligent citizenship by inoculat¬ ing in the student habits of precision, or¬ derliness, courtesy, correctness of posture and deportment, leadership, and respect for and loyalty to constituted authority, and to give the student basic military training which would be of benefit to him and of value to the military services if and when he would become a member thereof.” The Emerson Rifle Team is composed of ten men. They participated in the Fifth Army Match, held from the first week in February to the middle of March. Of the four schools in the city Emerson placed second. D. M. S. AND T. T HE Department of Military Science and Tactics of Emerson High School is com¬ posed of eighty-four cadets, who in turn com¬ prise the two companies, L. and N. D. M. S. and T. cadets learn map-reading, first aid, group co-ordination, leadership, and drill. They are taught the value of personal health, group behavior, personal manners, grooming, and the art of self-defense. Supervised marksmanship training is given on their regulation rifle range. The greatly anticipated social event of the year, the Military Ball, was held April 15th in the Crystal Ballroom at the Hotel Gary. The Regimental Revue was held May 10th at the Tolleston football field. Donald Small from Tolleston High School, regimental com¬ mander of the city, was presented with a sabre and the ten highest riflemen in the city were presented with the Gary Chamber of Com¬ merce award. 78 Top, foreground, left to right: Sgt.

Its members are selected on the basis of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. A working organization, the Emerson High School chapter of the National Honor Society was the sponsor of many events, which bene¬ fited both the community and the school. A combined fund was started, the S. O. S. Humanity Drive, which was for the benefit of crippled children and the victims of Heart Dis¬ ease, Polio, Tuberculosis, and Cancer. This was one of the main projects of the Honor Society. Career Night, held on March 29, for the bene¬ fit of the Emerson students, was received with SENIOR HONOR SOCIETY SPONSORS—Standing: Miss Tinsman, Mr. Spaulding, Mr. Rowland.

It was just another day of school, but some¬ thing had happened! THE GOLDEN GAZETTE was on sale and everywhere you looked, there were students reading the school news. THE GOLDEN GAZETTE, a project of the Commercial Club, was started in 1949. NEWSPAPER BOARD:Theresa Lelak, Mary Kachis, Jo Ann Cox, Jim Aydelotte. Since then it has increased in circulation and has become a bigger and better paper. It is a monthly paper, published for the students, re¬ lating the latest school news, events, and sports. With the assistance of Miss Beeler, the sponsor, and under the management of Editor Jo Ann Cox, the paper has proven to be a great success.

O F the many problems which confront¬ ed the Annual Staff, one of the most difficult was the selection of a group of compet¬ ent seniors, who were to sell subscriptions for the 1950 EMERSONIAN. The goal was 500 copies and these were to be sold before January 21. After much discussion, those students who were best qualified were chosen to comprise this staff. Fourteen seniors, under the management of Melvin Edwards, began the campaign for subscriptions. Signs were posted in the halls and students were rushed at the dances. Fac¬ ulty, students, and alumni were urged to buy subscriptions from this staff. They not only sold annuals, but it was through this staff that all the projects spon¬ sored by the Annual Staff were successful. They sold tickets to the Roller Skating Party, encouraged students to help support the an¬ nual, sold apples and bows, and contributed to the bake sales. They worked hard to help make this book a success. 85 Money! Money! Money! PICTURE SCHEDULES, LAYOUTS, IDENTIFICATIONS, COPY, SALES, DEADLINES These were just a few of the many problems facing the Annual Staff in the production of the 1950 EMERSONIAN. With Sue Lowe as Editor, Bill Lautenbach as assistant Editor, and an inexperienced staff of thirteen stud¬ ents, they began conquering these prob¬ lems. The theme was chosen and a dummy of the book was made showing the layout of every page. Jo Ann Cox and Nick Franke made picture schedules. While Guy Janssen and Theresa Lelak made layouts for the pictures, Mary Ann Morley, Emma Orgon, and Dorothy Hardy were busy identi¬ fying each person in the pictures returned from the photographer. Meanwhile Melvin Edwards and Betty Lieber checked sales, and balanced the budget. Ends just wouldn’t meet! Projects to raise money were planned. Among these were: the Annual Personality Dance; a Skating Party; Bow Day; Candy Sales; Bake Sales; and Apple Day. ANNUAL STAFF—First row. Istt to right: Emma Orgon. Betty Lieber, Carole Konz.

While these people were doing their specified jobs, Carole Konz was writing copy, cap¬ tions, and headlines, and working frantically to meet printer’s and engraver’s deadlines. The Junior representatives, Art Evdokiou, Ed Charlebois, and Jerry Copeland assisted whenever they were needed, doing miscellaneous tasks. With the appreciated cooperation and wholehearted sup¬ port of the faculty and students, and under the able guid¬ ance of Mr. Tangy, their sponsor, the staff was able to publish this book.
