DAv1DsoN. xi an li M 1- 3. i WI THE OFFICE F oRcE IKE. the engine that sets the locomotive into motion and pulls a vast train, so the office of Englewood Evening School is the central force which carries forward the train of progress with its four thousand students over the hills of knowledge. Mr. David M. Davidson., "chief engineer," though with us but two short years, has helped to build up one of the two standard evening high schools in Chicago. He is constantly working for the improvement of the evening school, and has the best interests of its students always at heart. Mr. Frederic C. Lucas and Mr. George White, assistants to the principal, are Mr. Davidson's right hand men. Mr. Lucas has charge of the school payroll and handles the tuition fees. He is the buyer of school supplies and equipment, and is also overseer of the Booster Association. Mr. White handles other finances of the school, such as the sale of tickets for school entertainments, opera tickets, the financing of the Evening Star, the Booster dances, and any other school enterprise in which money is involved. He is also supervisor of the Foreign Department in the Lewis-Champlin Building. Miss Mildred Wheelock is the very important person whom one interviews in re- gard to credits, for she is the registrar. She supervises the huge files in which each stu- dent's credits are recorded, whether earned at Englewood or other schools, and she is an ever ready adviser for the students who are in doubt about their course of study. Miss Helen Rowe assists Miss Wheelock with the students' records and also keeps the attendance of the teachers, while Miss Margaret Hurney is Mr. Davidson's secretary and makes all statistical reports which go to the Board of Education.

Foreign Department graduation exercises which will be held June 9, in the Lewis-Champlin building, will mark a great step forward for the eighty-odd students who have completed the elementary grades and will receive diplomas. All nationalities are represented by men and women who have come to learn the language, customs and ideals of America with the sole purpose of graduating and becoming naturalized Ameri- can citizens, and then furthering their education in the Englewood Evening High School. The elementary work included: English, the most important and necessary sub- jectg civics, geography, mathematics, spelling, history, and music. The class was grouped into two rooms under the instruction of Miss E.. M. Berg of room 307, and Miss A. A. Boyle of room 303. The pupils attended classes regularly and in some cases they did not miss a single evening. Much credit must be given to lVlr. George White, who undertook the responsibility of head of the department, a position which was vacated by lVlr. C. S. Warner last November. He has endeavored to bring about a closer relationship of the students of the Foreign Department and the Englewood Evening Boosters. Fifi e65.1-L---- The Midnight Sun VOLUME 17 ' JUNE 1, 1937 NO. 19 CONSOLIDATION OF WORLD RENOWNED FIRMS ANNOUNCED Gigantic New Office Building To House Company At the meeting of the board of directors of the Nelsen Needle and Thread Corporation, Mr. I-Iarold F. Nelsen, chairman of the board of directors, an- nounced that he has just com- pleted negotiations with two of the country's leading concerns, the MacNair Needle Company of Oshkosh, Wisconsin, and The Earley Thread Company of Wheeling, W. Va., whereby both firms will be taken over by the Nelsen organization. Assets Beyond Equal The merging of these three world-renowned firms will make a company that has no peer in size and available assets. Al- though no definite figure has as yet been mentioned for publica- tion, it is certain that never be- fore has a' transaction of such proportions been closed. Erect New Building The board also passed on plans drawn up by the noted architect, Robert A. Kalchbren- ner, for a fifty-one story struc- ture to be erected at Michigan avenue and East South Water street. This building will sur- pass in height and beauty all of Chicago's numerous skyscrapers. The offices of the new corpora- tion, which will be known as the Nelsen Amalgamated Needle QCOIIIIIIUCKI on p.

U Bowling Champion Beaten: Kosovske Plays Brilliantly By dint of his extraordinary skill in the art of handling the bowling ball, Abe Kosovske, de- throned Edward Daly, national champion, at Peterson's alleys last night. Known for his prowess in this field while a student at the Eng- lewood Evening School about ten years ago, he did not disap- point his ardent followers, who predict a brilliant future Ifor him. Sixteen Chicago Professor To Give Travel Talk Ar Medinah Temple Associated Press, Chicago, june l, l937.-Professor Paul E. Anderson, noted lecturer of University of Chicago, will give an illustrated lecture on the Orient at the Medinah Temple this evening at eight o'clock. Colored slides will be shown giving views of Turkey, Meso- potamia, India, China, Japan, and Thibet. Professor Anderson was a graduate of the class of '27 at 1Englewood Evening School. During the day he was an of- fice boy at the Federal Life In- surance Company, while his eve- nings were spent in "pursuit of knowledge." Later he worked as a secretary for the Oriental Rug Company, and attended Evening College. On his graduation he was giv- en a position at the Lombard College and later transferred to the University of Chicago. Now he conducts tours through the Orient for the Floating Univer- sity. HAMMOND ADDRESSES STEEL CONVENTION With an impressive speech from Mr. Ken I-Iammond, the national convention of steel pro- ducers witnessed the opening ses- sion of its meeting at the Con- gress I-Iotel, Chicago, Thursday, june Ist, I937. Mr. I-Iammond was selected for this honor be- cause of his tremendous popu- larity in steel circles throughout the country. A former student of the Eng- lewood Evening School, where he distinguished himself some ten years ago as a student of great promise, Mr. Hammond was at that time a custodian of supplies for the United States Steel com- pany.. u o s I-Iis meteoric rise to fame is attributed to his avidity for work and more of it, every minute of the day. JAZZ MUSICIANS TO BE PENSIONED IN PROPOSED BILL Congressman Higginbotham, Father of Measure At the opening of Congress yesterday, many important bills were proposed, one of the most momentous being the introduction of a bill whereby all aged and decrepit banjo players would re- ceive a life pension to be paid out of the treasury funds of the United States. I-lon. William I-Iigginbotham, congressman from Illinois, is the father of the bill, and it is be- lieved that he will receive hearty support in all quarters. Higginbotham Speaks "It is only just," says Mr. Higginbotham, "that we should show these men some mark of respect in thanks for the won- derful work done by them in years gone by. Music, whether old-time jazz, such as Whiteman, Waring and Ash played, or the sweet, soothing melodies of the present age, is a vital part of a man's life!" Mr. Walter Rink, director of the Chicago Symphony Orches- tra, when interviewed said that to his mind, Mr. I-Iigginbotham's bill was one of the greatest bene- fits to the world of music since the days of Pan. Chicagoans Present Among the noted personages in the audience at the opening of Congress, were many faces from Chicago, including Miss Mary McElIiott, the well-known novelist: Miss Doris Barber, leader of the younger social setg Professor David M. Davidson, president of the Englewood City College, Dr. Charles Espen- shade, assistant to the Secretary of Public Instruction, and in im- mediate charge of the propaga- tion of the study of music in all schools in the United States. A new book, "My Adventures in the Wilds of America," by Professor E. S. Cialusha, of Englewood Evening College, has just come off the press. This is a series of tales used by Prof. Galusha to enliven the study of accounting in his evening classes. 2-'I or 9 F1931 H639 THE. MIDNIGHT SUN june l, I937 INDICT PILIPOVICH AS FAKE MEDIUM, M. SIMONS SUES Large Fortune Involved In Strange Case Anthony Pilipovich is quiclcly learning that posing as a medium is rather risky business. On September 30, I936, john Wais- man went to Pilipovich to obtain an interview with the shade of a departed uncle regarding the dis- appearance of considerable gold of which the said uncle was possessed. Mr. Waisman apparently had reason to doubt the skill of Pilipovich in the art of med- iumism, for he had him arrested on the charge of being a fraud. Peterson Tries Case The case came up for trial today in Judge Ole Peterson's court, nicknamed by his friends, "The Sleepy judge." As Wais- man's English was somewhat un- developed, Theophile lmhof, professor of modern languages at the University of Chicago, was called in to act as an inter- preter. Simons Prosecutes Mr. Maurice Simons, the prominent young lawyer, acted as prosecuting attorney, while Mr. Marlc Perlmutter of Stock- holm, Minnesota, is attorney for the defense. Miss Ruth Goff, court re- porter, was called upon to re- read certain sections of the re- port which seemed to be rather hazy in the mind of the plaintiff. The defendant will go on the and the case stand tomorrow, promises to be an interesting one, though it may tend to discourage some promising explorers into the unseen. FALK WINS OVER DAVIS Associated Press, Pasadena, June 5.-Irwin R. Falk, wealthy Chicagoan, today won the annual amateur tennis tourament from lsadore Roy Davis, former title holder. The tournament was witnessed 'by approximately two thousand tourists. This event was the climax of the yearly Festival of Roses. Petersen Wins Prize At Indiana Spaedufayg Dvfeals lmmvnsev Charles LeRoy Petersen won the 550,000 Grand Prize at the Indianapolis Speedway today by holding his Straight-Eight Special at a terrific speed, smashing the record of l09.2I miles per hour, held by the German driver, Herr Ludwig von lmmensee. Much of the credit for the speed developed by this machine is due to Adolph Grib, head mechanic at the General Motors plant, who superintended the construction of the racer. Mr. Petersen and Mr. Grih were both graduated from the Englewood Evening I-ligh School in the spring of l927. After leaving school, they were drawn into the automobile industry, Petersen as a car tester for the Cadillac and Grib as a me- chanic's assistant. J. COONS WILL ATTEND PREMIERE PRODUCTION AT GOODMAN THEATRE Joseph Coons, celebrated play- wright, arrived on the Twen- tieth Century from New York this morning, to attend the Chi- cago premiere of his play, "Ye Small Towne Gossipef' at the Goodman Theatre. The play has created quite a furore in the theatrical world, having been acclaimed one of the finest dramas ever presented on the American stage. Leonard Ryan, well-known character actor, plays the lead- ing role, with Miss Claire Rose, "America's Darling," playing op- posite him. They are supported by a fine cast. Mr. Coons has received many offers for the screen rights of his play. and it is rumored his re- ceipts so far have run up to three million dollars. Olympic Records Shatteredg Chicagoans Capture Honofs Two world's records were es- tablished in the Olympian games held at Amsterdam, by the Am- erican entrants, Alexander Sltrzypel: and Flavious Spencer. both graduates of the class of '27 of the Englewood Evening High School. AMERICAN WOMAN, WORLD'S CHAMPION SCALES HIGH PEAK Explorers Conquer Lofty Mt. Everest Peak News reached Chicago today that Miss Agnes Dol, famous woman explorer, and her party, who left here june l, l932, on an Asiatic expedition, climbed over 29,000 feet up the snow- laden Mt. Everest, thus setting a world record, since she is the first climber who has not turned back before reaching the top of the world's highest pealc. Risks Life With Miss Dol was Miss Louise Schoenemann, prominent Chicago novelist and poet, and Mr. Lyman l-larrington of the Griflith Motion Picture Com- pany, whose undaunted courage enabled him not only to climb the sinister, snow-banked monster peak, but loaded down with sev- eral cameras he secured marve- lous views at the risk of his life to be used in forthcoming mo- tion pictures. The third member of the party was Mr. Zephire -l..Marquie, the Chicago millionaire, made famous by his world-wonder in- ventions of l927-which caused the miraculous disappearance of the Mississippi Hood waters that endangered thousands of lives and caused a loss of billions of dollars worth of property. Formerly at E. E. S. The members of this party are all Englewood Evening School alumni, and Miss Dol has promised Miss Joanna Zan- der, present dean of the evening school, on her return, to give n lecture to the students on her experiences. Miss Schoenemann's latest novel, "Agnes the Conqueror," will be on sale May l and Mr. Marquie has already notified the Field Museum that his wonder- ful collection of rare plants and mounted wild animals of hitherto unheard-of species will be on exposition at the Museum by the first of the year. Slcrzypek set the record for heaving the 8-lb. shot put a dis- tance of 55 ft., while Spencer set the record for the running broad jump at 28 ft. 5M in.

Mr. Geddes spent his spare time studying to be an architect in the Englewood Evening School and Junior College. He rose rapidly through the ranks to become lloorwalker, then sec- retary of the firm, and when he had completed his study of arch- itecture, he went into business for himself. "Mr, Mencken," began Ed- win Enright, "is there a possible position for a reporter on your staff?" Such was the beginning of a boy of ambition. Now he slaps the dignified editor on the back and says, "Well, old boy," and "I-Iow's everything?"

Screen tests have been made and have proved most satisfactory. This news leaked out as IVIr. Lasky, president of the Famous Players organization, boarded a train for New York, where he will arrange details for the world's premiere of Ben's Her, starring Aileen Moore and Wal- ter Evanoff. He stated that Miss Schon and Mr. Link will leave for Hollywood immediately after the expiration of their present contract, which calls for a tour of all the Balaban and Katz theatres in Chicago.

PIEPER WEALTHY IMPORTER BECOMES SLEUTH "Sneaking Sam" Captured While Burgling Home Adventure lurks in the most unexpected places, as Mr. Aug- ust R. Pieper, wealthy tea im- porter of 445 Englewood ave- nue, discovered yesterday eve- ning when he was leisurely walk- ing along Normal Boulevard at about ll:30. As he passed the palatial residence of Frank E. McCollom, 6l33 Normal Boule- vard, his attention was attracted to the figure of a man making his escape through a French win- dow near the street. Phones Sgt. Murphy Mr. Pieper looked, walked on, and said nothing until he reach- ed Walgreen's drug store at the corner of 63rd and Normal Boulevard. There he called the Englewood police station and told what he had seen. Desk Sergeant Eugene Murphy imme- diately sent out the llivver squad. Shots Fired Mr. Pieper's curiosity being thoroughly aroused, he walked back along Normal Boulevard to see what was happening and ar- rived just in time to see the po- lice squad dart into the alley at the rear of the McCollom home. While he stood there trying to decide whether he should follow them or return home, he heard two shots lired a short distance away. Almost at the same in- stant a man came running out of the alley and fell almost at his feet. Sneak Thief Caught The squad arrived immedi- ately in hot pursuit to claim the prisoner who turned out to be "Sneal:ing Sam," a well-known thief and safe-cracker. Need- less to say, the police are grate- ful to Mr. Pieper, who enjoyed the little adventure immensely, according to his own account. l'ler brilliant playing in the championship tourament played off recently at the I. W. A. C., was the main factor in securing this honor for her. C9911 19a gG,w------- wz.

Black "A man's life 'consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth': it is something more than eating and drinking and making merry." "Education develops personality. Literary, social, and scientific studies are the soil in which that fine flower grows and matures. They are the external forces which hasten its development and give it depth and richness, power and beauty, for through them one learns something of the processes and laws of nature, which after all are the processes and laws of God." "Education, as the president of a great western university declared not long ago, should produce men and women who will be a credit to society, not merely because they are useful from the so-called practical standpoint, but because they daily exhibit true culture, which includes character as well as knowledge." "Education is dynamic: it is full of pent-up energy capable of being used at a moment's notice .... It gives life and direction to one's purposes. It ennobles his ideals, increases his happiness, and multiplies his opportunities for service. Furthermore, it widens his intellectual hori- zon, enlarges his range of interests, enriches his mind, deepens his sym- pathies, and makes him a citizen of the world." :zen V191 K i THE FOREIGN DEPARTMENT N September IO, l926, Englewood Evening School opened wide its doors to the men and women wishing to enter. The Lewis-Champlin building followed suit. offering training in English and civics to the hordes of foreign-born people who wished to become American citizens. Mr. Charles S. Warner, who was again made dean of the Americanization classes, reported an enrollment of over 700 students at the initial opening, and since that time this has been greatly increased. The Lewis-Champlin school offers opportunities for those who know no English at allg for those who have a fair knowledge of itg and for those who wish to prepare for high school. Work ran along smoothly until October I4, when Mr. David M. Davidson an- nounced the resignation of lVlr. Charles S. Warner. lVlr. Warner came to Englewood High School five years ago as assistant to the clean of the Americanization classes when Mr. Tower was principal. Mr. Tower sensed his interest and ability and soon gave him full charge of the work. It seemed at first that a fit successor to Mr. Warner would be hard to find, but in Mr. George M. White, it was soon evident that another good man was coming into oflice. Thanksgiving week a collection was taken in this school for a fund for the poor children. With happy smiles on their faces the students put their hands in their pockets. and with such effectiveness that 5148.44 was collected. Tu.'r'n!y'onv HZ 33 --1-i ----l----arg I i K 1 I The Lewis-Champlinites, their hearts warmed with the joy of giving, were in such line spirits, that they no longer delayed their much-discussed dance. Un Thursday, No- vember 8, a goodly crowd was there in the gymnasium. This dance, which was ar- ranged to bring about co-operation and friendliness in the Americanization classes, was labeled a huge success by lVlr. White and the pupils. The big closing dance before the Christmas vacation. was received with much en- thusiasm by the pupils. With the re-opening of the school, on January 3, the students joyfully trooped back to school, renewing old friendships and making new ones. Four hundred and fifty people enrolled for the new semester. The school soon resumed its normal appearance and every one worked harder than before to excel in their Americanization work in order to be perfectly instructed when tak- ing out their citizenship papers. Washington's birthday was celebrated by showing slides depicting the life and career of George Washington from his English ancestors, until his death at Mount Vernon. ,There was a great bustle in the Lewis-Champlin building during the middle of the month of March, when the non-standard evening schools were closed and many of their pupils, desiring further education, gratefully accepted Mr. Davidson's invitation to con- tinue their studies at Englewood Evening School. Students from Fenger, Tilden, Stew- art, Lindblom, and other schools trooped to the Lewis-Champlin Building and were soon assigned to classes by Mr. Davidson and lVlr. White. Dances and parties have enlivened the everyday round of study, and these enthus- iastic Englewood Boosters finished their year in the same spirit in which it was begun, by setting a line standard of loyalty and co-operation with every school enterprise. fi vnty-tivo in o Y l 1 l 1 ll Monday-Wednesday Classes F ORGET-ME-NOT By Mrs. Nannie Burch IN the midst of a garden, among roses, Which was ever my favorite spot- In the shadow of lilies and beauties, Grew the lovely Forget-Me-Not.

W. Stolcer's class is just a sample. The study of English is one of the most practical for all students, for it acquaints them with the good things that have been thought and done by men in all ages, and gives them, in addition to this, an opportunity to express their own thoughts in clear and force- ful language. "Literature and Living" is the title of one of the texts used in the classes. -a significant one, indeed, for it expresses the close relationship existing between the two, which is always foremost in the minds of the teachers and students in these classes. "A ROSE" By Madeline Hummell OTHER EARTH: the warm spring air: The gentle rain, a rosebud fair, All for one end, these marvels rare, To fashion a rose for you to wear. Tuwlt v-sv: n EZQP1 Si LATIN R. DANIEL E. HAGER, teacher of Latin, some time ago made the following statement, "Latin is the key to English and all the romantic tongues." This language is necessary for entrance to many college courses, especially law and medicine, and also is a great aid in the study of modern European languages, many of which are corruptions or dialects of ancient Latin. These facts probably explain the excellent attendance and dutiful application shown by the students. The classes of both Mr. l-lager and Miss Huldah C. Bone, pictured together above, were filled to capacity at all sessions. One of the features of the Latin department this year was a Latin musical comedy: "Latin Grammar Speaks," given by the members of Miss Bone's class. The characters of the play were the parts of speech such as verbs, nouns, pronouns, adjectives, aclverbs, prepositions, etc. The members of the class who did not participate in the play proper, furnished the musical accompaniment by singing Latin songs. The endeavor met with great success and as it is an entirely original idea, Miss Bone is to be congratulated. Her enthusiasm has gone far to develop interest and good will on the part of the class. Mr. l-lager's fine knowledge of Latin and energetic method of teaching have turned out many students well versed in the elements of the tongue of the Caesars.

'gr JOURNALISTIC WRITING ANY evening high school students are confronted with the question, "What courses shall I take to help me in whatever profession or vocation I may wish to follow?" No one can make a mistake in entering the journalism class in room l24, for it is one of the most interesting in the high school curriculum. This department is still in its infancy, for it was not organized until five years ago. In l922, Mr. R. R. Smith organized this department with a class of ten. "The Eve- ning Starn was created by this group of students and is still the medium through which the members of the class gain practical experience. Many of those who have taken the course in the past are now actively engaged in advertising or publicity work, as well as in the news reporting field. Mr. Smith had the gratification of seeing this department grow until the time of his resignation from the evening school in January of this year. Miss Joanna Zander was appointed his successor and has organized an enthusiastic class with an enrollment of over thirty this semester. journalism does much to develop a student into a well-rounded, clear-thinking indi- vidual. ln the first place, it teaches him to think for himself, to be alert, observant, and original in the expression of his thoughts. l-le is taught what constitutes real news and how to collect and prepare it for the public press. l-le learns how the newspaper business is conducted and what are the duties of the various members of the newspaper staff. He is taught the art of rapid composition, the difference between news writing and editorial opinion. He is taught to search for facts, to seek for causes, and to foresee results. He is given a brief survey of every detail of the newspaper business, including headwriting and makeup, advertising, and the policies and ethics of the journalistic profession. Mention must also be made of this Evening School Annual, which has been pro- duced by the journalism class, under the supervision of Miss Zander.

L'-aaullwrs-said ZOOLOGY NE of the most fascinating classes in the Englewood Evening High School is the zoology class in room IO4, which is conducted by Miss Rose C. Maddock. A very superior type of student is enrolled this year in the class, which consists of nine men and nine women. Forty per cent of the class are high school graduates and many are taking this course in preparation for entrance to Normal School or colleges. The course is the same as that taught in the day school, but be-cause of the keen interest and the definite aim of the students, they are able to do all of their work in the class room. Miss Maddock proudly stated that none of these students fail in their examina- tions. ln the first semester, work was begun with insects, butterflies, dragon flies, bees, grasshoppers, and others. In connection with this study, the class determined which in- sects were harmful to farm products, what harm they do and what good they do. They discovered that some of our most beautiful insects, as the butterfly and the moth, are the most harmful, and that the lady-bird beetle is one of the most useful. Truly, "things are not always what they seem." Next, the study of the one-celled animal was taken up, and then, in the second se- mester, vertebrate animals received the attention of the class. The study of birds has enabled these amateur ornithologists to identify readily more than a half a hundred species of song and game birds. ' At the rear of the Zoology room is the "zoo," where the live rabbits, guinea pigs, doves, etc., have their abode. These animals add much interesting material to the work of the class. Thirty :qggg rfL95i 5'-S I I KQV: e --- - --ive: STENOGRAPHY AND TYPEWRITING URINC the past school year, the enrollment in the stenography department has totaled IGI in the secretarial classes, 389 in the stenography classes, and 729 in typewriting. This large enrollment is due to the stupendous demands made by business for young men and women with commercial training. Courses offered in the Englewood Evening High School prepare the students to fill a definite place in the business wold, enabling them to associate themselves intimately, as helpers, with executives who actively direct business affairs. Eventually, it is expected, the persons so trained will attain higher and more important positions than those prepared for in the evening classes. The increasing popularity of the commercial classes indicates that this year's figures will be eclipsed in September. h Y ir- Y. , , .........,-. .. , Y , I ,. .. ,-.. .,. - -- . ,..-.Lu ,-...,.-,,:.. v , ,. .,......... l A-4 llilrty-Um' I 4 I I ' -3' ' l 1 l mi 1+ i i l 556'-" ' 25 V - 4 H I BOOKKEEPINC, ECORDS of enrollment during this semester show that the bookkeeping classes hold the honor of being one of the largest departments in the Englewood Evening High School, the total reaching two hundred, with classes in session in rooms ZI I, l20, I IZ, and 109. I Bookkeeping opens before its students a large and inviting field of opportunities for advancement, for every office, institution, bank, or other form of business, must procure trained men and women to record their business transactions. According to the teachers, a number of students have showed unusual aptitude for the work, among them being Mr. Julius Cremer of l09 and Mr. Arnold Larson of l20. Certainly no account of the bookkeeping classes would be complete .without the mention of Miss Krablin CI IZJ, Mr. Cosgrove Cl09J, Mr. Hornstein CIZOD, and Mr. Galusha C21 ll, who give unsparingly of their effort to make the subject such a fascinat- ing one.

' 1 SALESMANSHIP AND BUSINESS MANAGEMENT E aim to teach future salesmen and sales managers the rudiments of the work with which he will come in daily contact," said Mr. Harry H. Hornstein, the instruc- tor of the class. The first semester of the course is devoted to teaching the pupil to pre- sent his product intelligently to the prospective buyer with every expectation of making a sale. Demonstrations of actual sales are given by salesmen and members of the class. The second semester is devoted to sales management and business management. The student is coached in making "pep" talks to his salesmen. Each member of the class is required to make a series of four talks. A number of men actually employed as sales- men and managers are invited to address the class from time to time. The class has also demonstrated its ability by assisting in a ticket selling campaign for a benefit band con- cert and by "selling" the Englewood Evening High School to neighboring evening schools. Among other activities of the year have been a class banquet and the organization of an alumni club of the sales class. A number of the former members of the class have made outstanding successes, as, for instance, one man who has risen from a hundred dollar a month position to become secretary of a large lirm. COMPTOMETRY HE comptometer class of last September was the largest in the history of the Engle- wood Evening High School, the enrollment passing the hundred mark. It is interest- ing to note that seven of this number were young men. Mr. Charles B. Jackson stands at the helm of both classes, which meet in room 210. Comptometry, aside from being a very interesting subject, is especially attractive on account of the splendid salary, rapid advancement in business, and, of course, the short time in which mastery of the machine may be gained. Many of the members of the class are already operators who come to the evening school classes to correct their deficiencies. One member of the class, Miss Marie Folta, has set a remarkable record by solving over two hundred and fifty difficult and intricate problems inside of two hours. V 1.

Enthusiasm during the semester was highly contagious, for the girls came in groups of fours directly from their respective day-time occupations and prepared their own sup- pers before the regular class hour. Such delicacies as banana pie, fruit ices, and special holiday dishes, as well as the everyday staples, together with experience in preserving and canning during the fall season, are some of the achievements of the girls. Such a course as this one at Englewood Evening High School should be an incentive to any woman interested in keeping a better home. SEWING DESIRE to wear better garments, made of better materials, and yet save money, seems to be the compelling motive of the sewing classes in room 225 and 226. The large total enrollment of one hundred students, with an attendance of thirty- flve in each class, proves the worth of the course. Such an intricate problem as fashioning an orchid evening gown, with wrap to match, out of materials costing twenty-five dollars, holds no terrors for them. The tailoring of a warm fur-trimmed winter coat was finished by one member of the class in time for Chi- cago's coldest weather. Numerous other pretty afternoon, business, and house dresses have also been completed. The girls have also received much valuable assistance in rip- ping, recutting, and refashioning new gowns from old gowns and materials. The minutes fly only too fast in these busy rooms and work is laid away with a lingering pat, indicative of a satisfaction that makes labor a pleasant pastime M11.L1NERY OT Chapeaux de la France, but Chapeaux de l' Englewood might well grace the door of room l l4, where the busy fingers of thirty-two girls, under the leadership of Miss Agnes Bauer, fly in the preparation of creations to suit the fancy of each indi- vidual. The girls have mastered the art of fashioning frames of wire and buckram and com- bining harmonizing shades into a perfect whole. While some of the members of the class may have ideas of commercializing their knowledge, most of the girls simply wish to make their own models for a mere fraction of the prices charged by the retail shops.

Burnham and Mr. Maurice Archbold. Ninety pupils en- rolled, including six women. One-half of the time was devoted to classwork and the other half to shop work. The biggest problem was the overhauling of an automobile, including valve grinding, ignition, chassis repair, transmission and differential repair. , J WOOD SHOP THIRTY-THREE pupils enrolled in the wood working class last September under the instruction of Mr. Neil M. Thomson. The course gave the pupils an opportunity to learn such trades as pattern making, cabinet making, and carpentering. No special work was undertaken as a class project, each pupil being allowed to follow his own bent. Among the many articles made during the term were armchairs, radio cabinets, and other household equipment. Th iffy-.fix - f - waz: 3 4 1 fl i 5 MECHANICAL DRAWING CLASS UST a few steps within the door of room 30l of the shop building, one sees a group ' of energetic students bent over mechanical drawing tables. Included in this assemblage, there are briclclayers and plumbers, architects, journey- men of the latter trades, salesmen, and a host of other occupations with which mechanical drawing has but a slight connection. Every student of that class had a definite purpose in selecting this course. They realize that with the aid of this subject advancement in their chosen profession will be greatly expedited. The majority of pupils are interested in the reading of blue prints, for in this busi- ness world of ours, where blue prints are the pen and pencil of the business man, this knowledge is vitally essential. With the assistance of Mr. Glenn Worst and Mr. Edward Olsen, their teachers, the class works two hours a night and two or four nights a week as they may desire. Machine designing, architectural drawing, and sheet metal drafting are some of the branches in which the student may specialize. Y l:z'v't-i',u':'t'1x r4L93i l'-S65-5' .,-l 1 i 1 i i , I 1 I I I . J COMMERCIAL ART OMMERCIAL ART, as an evening high school subject, had its beginning at Eng- lewood in September l92l, under the direction of lVlr. Philip E.. Burness. At that time there was an enrollment of about fifteen students. In the six years of its existence, the class has steadily grown, year by year, until now it promises to be one of the school's leading classes. For the past few years, Mr. Burness has found it necessary to take an assistant teacher in order that the large number of students might be properly taken care of. After a few months it was necessary to let the assistant go, the class having dwindled down to a considerably smaller number. This year, however, the initial enrollment of ninety did not show any material decrease, and Mrs. Nellie T. Osgood has remained with the class throughout the year. Exceptional application and much talent have been displayed in the past year. The students show an unusual interest in the study, which is, of course, the best incentive for hard work in any endeavor. Particular emphasis is placed upon poster painting and display advertising, and this year some of the students have assisted in preparing the art work for the E.. E. S. Annual. The success and the rapid progress of the class can be attributed in great measure to Mr. Burness and Mrs. Osgood, both of whom have all the qualifications necessary to develop Coles Phillipses and Norman Roclcwells.

If not, the reason is that he has never visited Miss Rita Corkell's public speaking class in room 320.

On several occasions different classes of the evening school have enjoyed oratorical programs given by the students of the class, in which a guest speaker was invited to participate.

In the past year they have been requested to play for practically all of the assemblies and have regularly accommodated the Foreign Department by playing at their monthly dances in the Lewis-Champlin Building. Away back in the Community Room, 236, where their practicing won't disturb the rest of the school, the pupils gather two evenings a week for two hours, perhaps the most interesting hours of the day, for they evidently consider it interesting to work on a certain musical number until every instrument harmonizes. One little error on a violin, or the saxophone, or any of the other numerous instruments, is likely to set the entire class in discord. Many of the students come from distant points of the city to attend classg two come into Chicago from Blue Island, and seldom miss a night. Another feature of the class is that it is a sort of "melting pot," having among its members, a Spaniard, a Russian, and a Philippino. Many of the original enrollment of forty-live had never played on the instruments that they now possess, but by combining a little talent, a little patience, and a great deal of drill, they have mastered them, and are now able to present very creditable selections ranging from the classical to the light, breezy jazz for which they have become famous at the Foreign Department dances. ' The orchestra is a vital school activity, and consequently needs the support and co- operation of the school, and the students in return express their appreciation for the work that has made the Englewood Evening School orchestra. l'urly-fum' 9l 1-1 l i 1 P u r'Q93'rl :Q C in ,Al , Q6 , , . .. . . . .. , I.. . ..., .M.,,..N,,,,:..-f-,,,: N , .

A large number of students enrolled in the class the first semester, and each semester since the enrollment has increased until now, in l927, Miss Roe has a total list of fifty ambitious, music-loving pupils. Each student is given a private lesson of twenty minutes each week, and must ob- tain at least two hours a week outside practice. Miss Roe is delighted with the class of students, who range from amateur pianists to finished students of musical colleges, such as the Chicago Musical College, and the American Conservatory of Music. Englewood is fortunate in possessing an organ in its auditorium. The organ class furnishes much of the music at the various evening school entertainments. Miss Frances Wortell and Miss Doris Geffert, as well as others of the class, have fulfilled many re- quests for organ numbers, and Miss Roe herself has often entertained the students with selections. The organ class offers a type of study that is very fascinating, as well as instructive, and the music-loving boy or girl will find here a course of study that will benefit him or her both in technique and expression. Forty-fi e lvl IG gi l I 1 I GIRLS' GYMNASIUM TTENTION! Hands level with chest, elbows horizontal, left lunge!" The twenty-odd girls that comprise the class present a pleasing spectacle to the eyes as their movements seem those of a single individual in their uniformity. Under the instructive guidance and criticism of Miss Anna Schmook, the class is fast learning to master dumb-bells, Indian clubs, wands, rings, ladders, and the various other apparatus available in the gymnasium. Marching and drills serve their purpose in straightening slumping shoulders, bringing heads up, and effecting the healthy glow in I the cheeks that tells the world all's well inside. "All work and no play makes .lane a dull girl." So, when the military part of the exercises is over, sides are chosen and some seasonable game is played-these usually in- clude baseball, basketball, volleyball, and the numerous other varieties of indoor sports. A recent exhibition of the girl gymnasts' tactics gave a slight example of their rapid and admirable progress, and gave promise of even better accomplishments yet to come. Could some of our night school students realize how beneficial the gymnasium course is for those who labor under artificial lights in ill-ventilated oflices, where the body is neglected eight hours a day, the enrollment in the classes would be much increased. The gymnasium is excellently equipped, capable of accommodating three times as large a I class as the present one.

MENQS GYMNASIUM V O you realize the tremendous part that the "gym" plays in the lives of those people who work in "air-tight" offices and factories every day? Perhaps not, if you are not one of these aforementioned beings and do not know the conditions existing in these places. But if you are, there is one place in this vast institution of learning that would be beneficial to your physical well-being and that is the "gym." Messrs. Smidl and Marx, the directors of the boys' classes, gave an "open-house" invitation to all young men to visit the gymnasium at any time convenient to them last February, and quite a large group responded. In fact, the enrollment jumped from about fifty to one hundred eighteen and the class is now the largest gym class in city high schools in the evening. The activities in the class consist mostly of free play with an occasional drill sand- wiched in between basket and baseball games. During the past basketball season several K. of C., industrial, and independent teams played or practiced on the floor. Mr. Smidl declared that this playing among the boys and men increases and de- velops perfect team work, which is not only an advantage in sports but also in the game of life. To those who are inclined to calisthenics, the parallel bars and "horses" offer ex- cellent opportunity to develop lax muscles. Although ordinarily no credit is given for this class, the opportunity offered here is one of the finest in the school and a record attendance is expected next year. Fortybscvcn l l 1 lg I-41 l- ac'Q95ii ls il li Si i THE EVENING BoosTERs ITH Walter jack Cole as president, Roy l-ludenburg, vice-president, Doris Bar- ber, secretary, and Arthur Albertson, treasurer, the booster association launched an Englebooster campaign that made history for the E. E. S. Within a comparatively short time after school opened 2,500 students became mem- bers of the Booster Association. On November 8, a banquet was held at the school cafeteria to commemorate the inauguaration of the Booster constitution. The second banquet sponsored by the Boosters was the Twinkle Banquet, held at the Pershing Palace, January l l. William l-ligginbotham was unanimously elected president of the Boosters, Janu- ary I3, on which date Jack Cole's resignation went into effect. Shortly afterwards Harold Nelsen succeeded Roy I-ludenburg as vice-president. Under the new regime a book exchange was opened in Room 207. It did big business for a short time, until the supply of books was exhausted. The week beginning February 7, was observed as Howdy Week. It was a week of informality, enabling the old and new students to become acquainted with each other. Many new friendships were made and old ones strengthened. Girls' Week followed shortly afterwards, April I0 to I6. ln the domestic science rooms exhibits were held for the purpose of showing the school and everyone interested in the school what the girls were doing. At an assembly, the girls showed their talent in other lines, namely, gymnastics, music, and drama. The Junior-College-for-Englewood proposition was brought up again this year at a Booster meeting. Ballots were sent to the students, who were almost unanimously in favor of the project.

Booster members have been admitted without charge, upon presentation of their membership tickets. An arrangement for the sale of guest tickets at a nominal fee made it possible for Boosters to entertain their friends. The sale of novelties, such as flowers and dance programs, has lent variety to the dances. Englebooster hikes have been instrumental in creating many friendships among the hikers. During the scholastic year 1926-27 there have been twenty hikes with an aver- age attendance of seventy evening school students. These hikes were planned and led by hikemaster Charles Kellogg and his right-hand man, Steve Nutt. Some of the places visited were Argo, Willow Springs, Matteson, Glencoe, Chicago Heights, Glenview, Norwood Park, Franklin Park, Tinley Park, Homewood, Melrose , Northbrook, Glen Midlothian, Pala- Park, Hinsdale, Western Springs, Harvey, Des Plaines, Highwood Ellyn, Roselle, Oak Forest, Orland Park, Winnetka, Morton Grove, tine, and Chicago Ridge, besides the forest preserves in Cook County The hike fans ended the year with a bus party to the sand dunes at Miller, Indiana, where dancing, bathing, boating, and canoeing were indulged in. The hikes, an institution sponsored by the Booster Association, are growing more popular each year as the fans make the hikes interesting by stopping occasionally to play football and baseball and enliven the hikes by singing to the accompaniment of Harry Newlander's banjo-uke.

THE ENGLEWOOD EVENING STAR ITH six years of faithful service in its wake, the Englewood Evening Star has es- tablished for all time a place in the hearts of Englewood's evening students. In the form of a four-page, two-column newspaper, printed in the school's print shop, The Star made its initial appearance January ll, l92l, with Mr. Willis E. Tower, then principal of the school, as its faculty adviser. Later in the semester, the advisership was turned over to Miss Mildred Wheelock, who held this position until September, 1922, when it was turned over to Mr. R. R. Smith. Under the guidance of Mr. Smith, The Star increased in size to four four-column pages, or sixty-two column inches in all. A journalism class was also instituted under Mr. Smith's regime, which worked in conjunction with the staff. At the end of the 1926 semester, Mr. Smith resigned his post, and on January 3, 1927, the destiny of The Star was turned over to Miss Joanna Zander, under whose careful supervision, a considerable improvement was immediately perceptible in the edi- torial makeup and style. Further improvements will be deferred until the fall semester, when the staff will endeavor to add many new features to its makeup and give the Engle- wood evening students a paper of which they can be more than proud. ADVISER,S NOTE: Especial credit should go at this time to the members of the staff, not only for their good work on The Star, but also on this volume. Although none of them were experienced in the journalistic field, they have been willing to work and to learn the things they did not know. Much might be said of the intelligence and enthusiasm with which Frederick C. Walters has filled the offiice of managing editor, supervising the general makeup of the paperg the zeal with which John Radosevic and James Comerford have undertaken the gathering of news and directed the work of the reporters. Others to whom honorable mention should also be given are: Harold F. Nelsen, advertising managerg Mary McElliott, arts and literature, and the reporting staff, con- sisting of John Waisman, Jennie Dahlberg, Edward Edelstein, Daniel Kane, Eugene Murphy, Leonard MacNair, Valda Swarm, Aileen Moore, V. N. Burch, Walter Evan- off, Celia Healy, Zephire Marquie, William T. Earley. I fly 0 l -I lb SSC-JV' S? 9 11933 l Ol .-S65-5' U g. 1 K l i uu':'.:, .

H. Little as the manager. Here, all kinds of good food, cooked in many different styles, can be procured at reasonable prices. Vegetables, meats, sauces, hot and cold drinks, pastries, and an as- sortment of other delicacies are set out so that each may select what he desires. The meat eater or the vegetarian will find a very palatable meal at a low cost, and one who delights in French or Danish pastry may satisfy his taste here. Mrs. Little states that an average of 2,l00 to 2,200, with a maximum of 2,600 people, are fed each day at noon, while approximately l00 eat their evening dinners in the school cafeteria. The large number of students who patronize the school cafeteria is ample proof that the food is well prepared and sold at the lowest possible cost.
