The Spirit ot Parker in its all embracing manner, has made it a definite and necessary part of the school. However, to many of us it is still a symbol of a larger dream: the day in the future when its modern sister school is completed.

PARKER 330 WEBSTER AVENUE CHICAGO, ILLINOIS I Four gnu--V. , W THE PARKER F MILY The companionship of parent, student and teacher has always made up the Parker we love and now, regretfully, must leave. Parkers very foundation is on the principles of cooperation, help- fulness and deep understanding. We feel, though, that in a troubled time, following a disastrous war, when bitter cliatribes against educa- tion are being hurled from all directions, it is well to state again that Parker principles are a vital, living force. We, the Class of '48, feel that Parker has given us a great dealp that our parents and teachers alike have always made us feel adult and like equals, so that now we can take our place in a troubled world with some degree of assurance. For these reasons we dedicate our RECORD to the PARKER FAMILY. When the Parker student of 1947-8 gets his Record, he first hunts out every picture of himself in it, and then uses it to collect autographs. But by the time he gets around to reading the text - this, for instance - he may begin to put the Record to its longer-range use. He is likely to look at the shot of the Harvard game and say, "O yes, that was the game that .... " And by the time he looks at the Record when he is home from college his comment will become, "Lets see, l948g wasn't that the year when . . . ?" Well, what has made this year memorable? Mostly, l think, an increased interest on the part of first one group and then another in doing all sorts of things that the rest of the school would profit by, or be proud of, or enjoy: . . . The Seniors, in the very opening Morning Exercise, at their own sugges- tion, at once given to their little brothers and sisters and by them triumphantly led off to the lower grade rooms .i.. The Ninth Grade tweather and the Police Department cooperating? organizing an out-door County Fair such as none of us could remember .... A Midsummer Night's Dream, with its graduate-coached fairy ballet, the Mendelssohn music by the student-parent- friend orchestra, the better-than-professional costumes designed and sewn by the devoted Mothers' Committee .... It has also been a good year competitively, and the class of 1948 has done its part well. When last year's outstanding athletes graduated, no one thought that even Coach and Mr. Horween could develop a team that again this year would make a strong bid for the championship. And in scholastic competition, too, the class has won distinction. Both the representatives whom it sent into the Pepsi-Cola competition placed in the highest tenth in Illinois and in the country, one of them, as you know, was one of the two winners from Illinois. So on many counts 1947-8 has been a good year, and the Class of '48 a good class, and to both we say farewell with pleasant recollections and with warm appreciation for what they have done for the Parker record.

Seven Eight All of Nature runs in cyclesg everything has a beginning, a middle and an end and, as soon as the end comes, there's a new beginning. There is always the new to take the place of the old. So it is with Nature, and the seasons and so it is, we feel, with school. September is a new beginning for the children of the very lowest grades and, as they come back each year, moving from grade to grade, they become likened to the other months ot the school year, in March, along with the Spring, the Freshmen seem to be becoming older in their new high school life but they are just budding, it is in june, with the Seniors that the flowers show real promise of maturity, as they look on the world with a new eye . . . yet, in just a few months there will be new Seniors . . . and new kinder- garteners . . . and so the cycle begins once again.

For the Pet Show we brought our fishes, turtles, dogs and cats. On the stage we told all the things our pets could do. At Christmas time we filled stockings with candy tor Toy Shop. We had a lot of lun dancing for Santa Claus, too, at the party the Seniors gave for us. For Valentines Day we made candy tor our parents. First we went to the store and bought all the things we would need. When we came back to school we made the candy ourselves. Everyone agreed that it was very good. We were all very happy when Spring carne because then we could play outside in the sunshine almost every day. Then We learned some new songs about the Spring and the birds. Whenever we would take a walk we would sing our new songs. We went a lot ot places on our walks. We walked over to the flower house and saw all the pretty flowers. We liked lunior Kindergarten.

UPPER KI DERGARTE The Kindergarten is a very happy grade and has done many wonderful things this year. We have two pet mice, Brownie and Betsy. We Watch them carefully and have found out many things about them. They eat nuts and corn and lettuce. When we have it We give them cheese. They live in a nice big cage. We put cotton in the cage so that they can make a little nest. Mr. Meyer shows us movies sometimes. They are about lions and bears. We liked the movies so much that after- wards we played lions and bears. ln the spring we went to the zoo. We read a story about 'Rag- gedy Ann". On Valentines Day we made a valentine box and put all our friends' Valentines in it. Our favorite holiday was Easter. We dyed eggs many pretty colors. All in all weve had a go,od year.

STUDE T GGVER ME T Frank Eisendrath, President Caryl Hollender Social Committee Rosemary Mixon Secretary Bunny Meyer Morning Exercise Committee TDETGO ERMET Student Government this year has had the usual amount of criticism, but on the whole it has run very smoothly. The committees kept within their budget and functioned in a parliamentary fashion. A clever scheme for raising money .to increase the sinking fund was initiated by the students and put into practice. Study-halls were run on a cooperative student-teacher basis. The idea of having a used-book store worked very satisfactorily and the above mentioned increase materialized into a pleasant reality. The year was an orderly one with singularly little bombast or theatrical effects. A great deal of hard, earnest work was put in by the committees and the year was a busy but hardly experimental one. The new House Committee had a chance to function properly and the zero hour system was instituted in place of the old work hour. Both seemed to be successful solu- tions to the age-old problems of penalties. The assembly behaved and acted with a reasonable degree of maturity. While the out-side world raged the battle of election year, our Student Government proceeded calmly through a constructive year. Frank Eisendrath SOCIAL COMMITTEE We have come a long way this year in making Parker's social life more varied and interesting. We proved that informal gatherings could be just as successful as the traditional dances. We have instituted a new form of group activities that surpassed in many ways the old style. ln our club form each student participated rather than going to be entertained by a few, and usually the same group of students. At Parker the size and facilities have made it possible to have a really fine and all embracing social life. However, it is always the students in the final analysis who make or break the school activities. This year the group of students has been helpful and cooperative to a high degree. We feel the aims we started out with have been fulfilled successfully. ' Caryl Hollender MORNING EXERCISES This year the Morning Exercise Committee has tried to reach two main goals. lt has striven, through a series of Parker Parents lectures on different vocations, to give students a small picture of the types of work that may await them in future days. It has also tried to give as many students as possible an opportunity to take part in an exercise. With the French, Spanish and German classes giving plays, the language departments were better repre- sented than they have been for many years. ln all its aims we feel that the Morning Exercise Committee has been successful, at least to an extent. There has been seriousness, reality, humor, and imagination all combined to make this a harmonious and happy year.

CC 77 This year's football team started out the season with the players and the school none too optimistic about our chances for a successful season, many valuable players had graduated and no one thought we had a chance. This was not the case. The squad consisted of twenty- three fellows, one of the largest squads that Parker has ever had. We Won our first three games to everyones surprise. Our next opponent, Harvard, had a very good team. We played well but were defeated 14-6. We didn't slacken though and We won our next game against Luther. Our last game, Concordia, was very exciting. lt was the hardest competition of the season. lt was close but We lost 6-U. Our successful season was due to the outstanding coaching of Mr. Horween and Barney Negronida. Frank Eisendrath TEAM FOOTBALL Ninete IIBII TEAM Front row: Friend, Thorsen. Bullis.

THIRD GRADE Our Third Grade is a happy group composed ot sixteen peppy boys and eleven lively girls who joined us since school started last September. We are studying this year about Chicago. We have learned many interesting things, among them the development ot our city's Water system. We also made a map of North America showing the journey ot Marquet and Ioliet. We have taken trips to the Academy of Science, Marshall Fields tur shop and the Wrigley bldg. Also we Went to the Historical Society, and the Chicago Avenue Water plant. These excursions were both educational and interesting. One ot the things that we are very proud ot is the curtains tor our south room. When We came in September this room had no curtains at the Windows. We made our own with the help ot Miss Clausenius. Each boy and girl helped and We are very proud ot our curtains, We hope that they will hang at the Win- dow tor a long time. 6'Q,0Q'CUG Viv' agyfvv V Front row: Buck, Strauss, Miner, Meyer, Rueben, Williams.

We have a stage, a balcony, a group room, a sun room, a cloak room, a hide-out and a fire escape. From our sun room we can see the falling rain and snow, the birds and the planes. ln the group room we show movies, slides and stills, listen to music. On our stage we give our famous Greek plays, our puppet shows and do all kinds of recitations. The Fourth Grade has many privileges. Small groups go alone to the library and the entire grade goes -twice weekly. We go twice monthly to the Art Institute and symphony programs. Often we go to some of the High School plays. We are asked to be in all the school drives, too. We have lots of lun at the parties we give for our big sisters and brothers. ln the Fourth Grade we have lots of opportunities and we've en- joyed ourselves very much. Twenty-three ii X ,N 5.

It was a sure success as it has been for years in high schools all over the country. However, it was especially adaptable to our class which runs more to hard, interested Workers than prima donnas. In this play there were a good many chances to shine to a larger or lesser degree. The best thing about the Senior Play is that the class becomes a closer, friendlier unit with a real interest in each other. "I go, I go." "Lovers, to bed" 14 f -if 'frf Tea for who?

EVEN TH GRADE The Seventh Grade has had a good year as a total. The play "Pedro Segundo" turned out pretty Well. Science has been interesting. The Seventh Grade boys basketball team tried hard but lost all six games. The future tor the baseball season looks pretty good. Of all our subjects Social Studies has been one ot the most interesting. Social Studies is taught by our grade head Miss Marshall. Our topic is Latin America or countries "south of the border". We learned about the Conquistadores who tried to take tull control over the "New World" after Columbus discovered it. Dancing class is fun. We have learned the jitterbug, tox trot and waltz so tar. The Social Committee has planned some excellent parties this year. One Was a County Fair party. We have had some movies. They have been mostly about Latin America. One especially good one Was about the Pan-American High- way. We hope the rest of the school has had as good a year as We have had. Pre-game practice "With Cl 'Ph wih Uh 'A'." QC " TEAM BASKETB LL The 1947-48 edition of the Parker basketball team was highly satisfactory and pleasing to everyone concerned even though our record was not too impressive. The team was rather green, having only one member of last year's regulars returning, but We improved steadily With every game. The team ran into some early season injuries that might have caused some trouble had not Coach pulled a couple of magic hat tricks to pull us over the rough spots. We lost a couple of heartbreakers to U-High and North Park. In all our games, however, We put up a good fight. We had a large team of Well trained players of equal ability who all participated and received bene- fits from the seasons games. In conclusion we wish to thank Coach Long for his untiring efforts to make a group of green individuals into an experienced team.

P BLIC T10 This year, with the re-instate- ment of the old Parker Prints, the Parker publications' triumvirate was once again completed. ln the be- ginning, the Weekly, Prints and Record had great plans of working together but, as will happen, they each wandered their own way, to solve their own problems before the year had barely started. Even though we have drifted apart there are many links to our chain of unity forged by time and common interests shared. We have all stayed up nights worrying and straining for something better than what was fin- ally received in the end. lt is a hard hopeless business, working on school publications, not to mention the criticism and ignorance of the students as a group. lt is your own criticism of your own work which is most demoralizing, the feeling that this is your only chance and it is bound to be just an amateur job. lf you are an artist there is no sense of loss in painting a passable picture or even a bad oneg you can always paint another. We, of the publica- tions, have had only one chance. lt stands as an imperfect monument to the year of '48. A harem for Stone Someone cracked cz joke MARCH Our Social Comm.

This may have been the cause ot his stuttering through "Pithecanthropus" more than once. All in all, he has managed to be a swell teacher and he has kept us in hand except during the few ab- sences in which he was suffering from a nervous breakdown. We hope he recovers in time for next year. CURRENT EVENTS There were numerous trips to the museums. Our bowling party and sleigh ride. The first dances and a grand week-end. We had our own class parties as well as participating in all high school events. SPORTS This year our gallant team had a hard season. They were tackled on the football field, thrown on the bas- ketball court and pitched at on the diamond. Despite which We had an enjoyable season. Front row: Harris. M. Pierce, lPresidentD, I. Elden. Second row: Peace, Flcmnigan, Payne, Carlson. Abs.-Wright, Kanter. G. A. A. The GAA. started oft this year by renewing the old point system and organizing Blue and White, in- ter-class, and inter-scholastic hockey games. The present Seniors have Won every hockey tournament since they were Sophomores and this year was no exception. Now that they are leaving someone else Will have their chance to be champs! There were plans for a slumber party, but, because ol misunder- standings and difficulties, it was never put on the agenda. The last party ot the year was the Letter Party, given by the G.A.A. tor the girls in the high school. All the people who had compiled enough points andf or played in the various All-Star games were pre- sented With their letters and em- blems amidst ice-cream, cake and a really gala time. The GAA. came back to life this year and by next year should be running smoothly.

UPHOMORE We are definitely a talented grade. Although we are all indi- vidualists We have a knack for mak- ing our presence felt. Heretofore we have had little interest in the intri- cate Workings of our governmentg that is all changed now, as under the expert guidance of Miss Cornell, we have become experts on the "Basic Elements". Although our class meetings are not perfect models of Parliamentary procedure, We certainly do attain a high point in heated political discus- sions. fWe advocate force, not law, in an orderly society? Without a doubt our "Harem Hop" Was the best event on the Parker calendar. We believe in do- ing things on a large scale and results are usually stupendous. Our boys are fine faheml athletic specimens of homosapiens. The girls in their own little Way, have proved that Women are a vital part of sports. Yes, even our Worst enemies must admit Cthough begrudginglyl that there Was never a grade like ours! Front row: Schradzke, Ashenhurst, Meyer, Maryan, Steinmeyer, Shapiro, Stern, K. Horween.

PECI L CHGRUS With the Special Chorus rapidly increasing in number every year, the job of co-ordinating such a large group into a workable singing or- ganization is becoming proportion- ately more difficult. Mr. Griffiths ability to organize and produce suc- cessfully was proven once again in the May performance as the chorus continued its policy of singing one long oratorio. By choosing Mendel- sohn's l'Elijah" the chorus had a chance to re-sing many old favorites While learning several of the less well-known pieces. As the Seniors look back on their years at Parker, Special Chorus stands out as one of the most dis- tinctive and enjoyable things it has to offer. For a high school group it is more serious and the quality of the Work is higher than in most places in the country. We realize that We owe this all to Mr. Griffith who has more vision and will power than most United States Presidents! Forty-seven BASEBALL TEAMS Front row: Thorsen, Mahoney, Fain, Wagner, Freeman.

CLASS DAY Fifty-on Fifty-two CTCONNELUS O'Connell's , . . a Parkerite's sec- and home. Well, anyway, a Well- Worn and familiar place Where every Parkerite wanders at one time or another during his high school career. O'Connell's is not a place to eat for the average person from Parker, it is a place one meets and talks to his friends. At Christmas time one sees old friends, throughout the year, Winter and summer alike, it is a con- crete, never-changing center of Parker social life.
