ln the l942 Steel Dust we have attempted to present to you
a brief but accurate portrayal of Froebel School in the tall, winter,
and spring seasons. We have tried to get away from the old con-
ventional layout used in most annuals and have presented events
as they actually occurred.
The book, at last, is published but at times we all but des-

paired. Never will we forget the arguments, disagreements, and
compromises that took place each day in the staff room. Color
schemes, layouts, cover design, and pictures were a few of the
subjects constantly being torn apart and put back together again.
We have tried to give you an annual that you will like and
enjoy, not only this year, but long after you are out of school.

A blare of bugles, a rumble of drums, a clash
of colors, and here they come! Yes, you guessed
it. The band is passing by.
ln the summer, this gala brigade brought back
first prize from among a group of school bands
at Riverview in Chicago. ln the fall, many a cold
football team was given new fire by the playing
of snappy marches. ln the spring, it was chosen
to lead all the other school bands in beautiful
parades, and finally, the concert which featured
the band but also included the orchestra and
choruses of Froebel was given at Memorial
The band was directed by K. W. Resur.

The Board of Control, composed of representatives from the
student body, endeavors to have the different classes and organi-
zations function effectively.
The Board Proper, Booster Committee, and Social Committee
are the three- units which forrn this central governing body of
the school. A few of its constitutional powers are the supervision
of class elections, the selection of school cheer leaders, the con-
ducting of "pep" sessions, and the final approval of all club or
One of the most outstanding events in which the Board
of Control participated was "Student Day." At this con-
vention, which was held at H-orace Mann, candidates from
the different schools sought city offices for one day. Per-
haps the most valuable lesson the Froebel delegates learned
from this initial inter-school political rally was the im-
portance of good organization for the attainment of any
With some helpful changes in its constitution and a
more favorable time for regular meetings already pledged
the Board looks forward to next year with confidence in
the actual attainment of its real purpose.

The Chemistry Club is a new addition to the
many clubs of the Froebel High School. Its purpose
is to further the knowledge of chemistry and create
greater interest in that subject.
The club's social activities are few. The main
one is the banquet which is held in Froebel School.
In order t-o finance the club's affairs, taffy
apples and karmel corn were sold.
The club's sponsor is Mr. Engle.

Any second year Latin student will inform you
that the well-known phrases "lt's Creek to me" and
"I came, l saw, l conquered" originated from Latin
- or did you know? These and many other facts of
Roman life are rediscovered by the Latin students
as they are gently but firmly guided on through text
books by Miss Georgia Bopp, teacher and club
This year, the members of the Pompeian Latin
Club attended the Latin Conferences at East Chi-
cago and Muncie. They sponsored a taffy apple sale,
a Froebel pennant sale, and as a climax to a very
successful year, they gave a dance with the French
and Spanish Clubs, entitled Lafrespa.

The students studying French know that the overpower-
ing of France on the battlefield does not mean a decrease in
the value of French culture and civilization, so they have
made a doubly hard effort this year during their club hours
to learn more about France, her people, and her culture.
Having learned more about the spirit of the French people,
they know that France will rise again.

apples to Froebel again for "taffy apple week"g and this club,

Interest in Spanish is rapidly increasing, and more stu-
dents than ever betore are now enrolled in Spanish classes
at Froebel. The second-year students, who organized them-
selves into a club, devoted every second Friday to the study
ot the other American republics. They discussed the geo-
graphy, history, and government ot every Latin-American
country. They made a collection ot all their flags and tried
to learn how the people ot those countries live.
On Pan-American Day, the club brought to the audi-
torium a tilm called "Americans All."

The Senior Safety Council, comprised of the educa-
tional, engineering, and enforcement departments,
attempts to make the students safety conscious.
The three departments work in perfect coordina-
tion to further safety. The function of the engineering
department is to eliminate all hazards to safety in school.
The educational department makes it their business to
keep the students informed of safety practices and of
the rules passed by the safety council. The enforcement
department sees that the rules passed by the council
are enforced, and that violators are prosecuted.
ln order to keep abreast of the news in safety, the
Froebel Senior Safety Council meets with the City Safety
Council to discuss safety measures.
Members of the council attended the traffic school
directed by Officer Stanton in order to become better

One of the oldest and most active clubs in Froebel School is
the Froebel Booster Club which is now in its nineteenth year.
lts purpose is threefold: to boost Froebel School in all its activi-
tiesg to create a friendly spirit among high school girlsg and to
develop good character. lt has succeeded in its purpose under
the enthusiastic sponsorship of Miss Blanche Liggett.
lt has given many social affairs during the year such as the
Teachers' Tea, the annual F. B. C. play, the annual Christmas
Party, and as a fitting climax, the May Ball, the affair every girl
in the F. B. C. anticipates. The grand finale of the F. B. C. and
the most impressive affair of the year is the initiation ceremonial,
at which the "linking of the years" takes place. At this cere-
monial, new members are inducted into the club and graduate
members are initiated int-o the Graduate Booster Club.
Regular meetings are held every Tuesday, after school, and
all members must be present unless they are excused by the
sponsor. A part of every meeting is devoted to the study of the
lives of famous women which proves very interesting and worth-
while to the girls.
At the close of the meeting, the girls stand, join hands, and
repeat the following: "Let us be loyal friends now and forever."

Membership in the Froebel Business Club is
restricted to those taking advanced shorthand.
Every other Monday speed building and skill
development are forgotten. Instead, Gary men and
women who are outstanding representatives of their
professions and occupations talk to the students
about their fields of work, opportunities for promo-
tion, and the qualities required to be reasonably,
successful in each type of work represented.
Speed demonstrations by business machine op-
erators and by expert typists are interesting, inspira-
tional, and helpful.

What could be more fun than ice-skating on

their answer by turning out very eagerly for this

her interest lies in bowling or table tennis. She can

tional Council. Out of about l75,000 members there
are 220 Froebel students.
The three outstanding events ot the year were

An adaptation ot "Mother Carey's Chickens," entitled
"Old Yellow House" was presented by the junior class.
Touching drama, fast-moving action, piercing screams, and
walking ghosts provided an evening's worthwhile entertain-
ment for the audience. The scene with Marie Kostas and
Steven Belkow shaking with fright at the menacing ghost
had the audience in stitches, and the spectators chuckled
at Lollie joy's iSusan lvletrojanisl antics as she set out to
"get her man," Gilbert Carey lAdolph C-ajewskil. Doris Pitt-
man, Dorothy Lustina, and Kathy Stamatelos gave a very fine
portrayal ot their particular characters.

This year's a-cappella, under the direction of
Adele Bohling Lee, has proved itself to be the finest
choir Froebel has had in many a year.
Composed of twenty-six very capable vocalists,
the a-cappella cheered many hearts at Christmas
time with its caroling in the stores and in churches.
lt has been featured in all the musicals presented in
the auditorium and also sang at the gala concert
given in Memorial Auditorium.
The choir meets every day for fifteen minutes
during the noon hour and members receive no points
for this. Perhaps that is why the a-cappella deserves
the high praise and credit given them for their fine

The l942 track season opened with a bang as Froebel trackmen won the city indoor title.
Froebel then journeyed to South Bend and took fourth place in the Gary invitationals. Froebel took
Emerson and Lew Wallace into camp in a triangular meet at Froebel. Then came the never to be
forgotten victory over Hammond High. For the first time in six years the Blue Devils took the
count of the Wildcats by the score of 58 to 52. At the Roosevelt Relays, Froebel played second
fiddle to the Wildcats of Hammond. Roosevelt of E. C. journeyed here and when they left the
Blue Devils had another notch in their victory column. May 2, preliminaries were held for the
N.l.H.S.C. Hard luck again followed the cinder men as they lost to Hammond 57 2X5 to 55Vz.
The City Outdoor was taken in a breeze as the Blue Devils ran wild. With the past record, the
team looks ahead to the state Finals, May 23, and is setting its cap for the title now held by Fort
Wayne N. S.

a senior class project. lt proved to be one ot Froebel's most popu-
lar performances. Miss Margaret Labb directed it.

The senior class this year gave Thornton Wilder's "Our
Town" which won the Pulitzer prize for drama in l938.
The play aroused not only the interest ot Froebel students
but that of the entire community. This was probably due to the
popularity of the stage play in Chicago and New York as well
as our well-organized publicity campaign.
With scarcely any scenery at all, but with skilled pantomime,
the cast produced a play that will live in the memory of every
person who saw it.
The cast itself will never forget scripts, late rehearsals, be-
lated lunches, sleepless nights, the evening performance, and
Miss Margaret Labb was the director.

QTOWLEJ for ow
Who can forget those shy Freshman days
when we were in school . . . Oh yes, and what
ambitions we had - we were going to be
great - maybe even president! - tskl tsk!
such optimism!! . . . How bright and eager
we were each morning to come to school . . .
We met new friends each day and worked
lwe were Freshmen thenll with them in
class and played with them outside . . . Re-
member our Freshman Dance lthat's what we
called itll with all the boys holding up the
walls and the girls just as bashful - or do
you remember how some girl "cornered" you
and tried to teach you the "Chorus Girl"? -
Oh Misery!!! . . . Well, boys, we finally did
loosen up, didn't we? . . . And AFTER the
dance -l wonder why those girls made
cracks about "Safety'.' shoes?!?l - Anyhow,
long lived the memory of having held close
to you the girl that appealed to your sense of
affection . . . we walked on air for weeks . . .
we even forgot about that "Glag" in Algebra
. . . or was it Biology??? . . . Oh yes, we sold
green bows that year, too . . . Remember how
proudly you wore five or six of them at a
time? . . . That was the year Olga Layko was
president . . . How time flies!
Three months have gone by and the sun
came up over a hundred times . . . What a
difference that made in our character, atti-
tude, and sense of humor!! . . . From those
green Freshmen we became those wise Sopho-
mores who "knew it all" . . . so we thought
. . . What we did that year?? . . . Don't ask
me . . . I didn't rightly remember . . . Oh yes,
we sold Easter eggs and Marge Bellis and Gus
Cougias were King and Queen . . . Well, so
what . . . they were happy!!! . . . That's the
year most of us worked the hardest and barely
had any extra time . . . well anyway, SOME
people worked hard!! Sure! and some new
romances . . . Fesko and Barnev . . , were
started and "no speaking" terms, too . . . but
what did we care . . . That was also the year
that Helen Fusiek was our president . . . Heil,
Two years have gone by and here we are,
full-fledged juniors . . . only one more year
of struggling left . . . groan . . . We chose
Larry Badylak as our president . . . Does he
still have the keys to the voting machine? . . .
and Harold Archybald Psimos as our vice-
president . . . ln that year a Mr. George Garl-
ton Swanson came to our school . . . remem-
ber him? . . . that's a enough sighing, girls
. . . and teachers, too . . . No one will ever
forget the junior Play "Barbara Frietchie"
which Miss Kelly directed and the entire high
school enjoyed . . . Let's see, we gave a junior
dance, a Pop Corn Sale, and a Pencil Sale . . .
we were all "Salesman Sams" . . . Yes, and
some of us were even fortunate enough to go
to the May Ball, the F.G.A.A. Banquet, and
the Prom . . . Oh boy!! did we have a swell
time . . . it was worth promising to cut our
neighbor's lawn all summer because we boi-
rowed his car . . . For the next week or two
we didn't quite see the sidewalks we walked
on or hear everything said to us . . . "t'jour
armour" . . . need l say more? . . . And this
was the year some fool by the name of Hitler
. . . a paperhanger who spends his time think-
ing up new world maps to satisfy his day-
dreaming . . . wishful thinker that he is . . .
decided he'd take about a year "time off" to
make those dreams a reality . . . three years
have gone by . . . he's still trying . . . idiot!!!
Well, here we are . . . look at us . . . We're run-
nig the school now and if you classmen don't like it,
welli! - ! !" . . .Yes, we're all "big shots" now
. . . look at the distinguished offices we hold . . .
But thank goodness we haven't become so self centered
that we don't know our friends any more . . .By now
our life has been just about chosen for us-if we could
only start over again. We'd do it the very same way!!!
Marce Gonzalez was our president this year - Yep!!
he stole the keys from fLarry!! - And who can forget
that excellent performance of Thornton Wilder's "Our
Town" for our Senior Play? . . . Nope you can't
even compare it! . . . Well, how about after the play
. . . have any fun? . . . And soon the girls were faced
with the most . . . most . . . excruciating . . .Web-
ster defines it as "painful" task of their lives . . .
picking an escort for the "affairs" . . . How the boys
were picked apart "bone by bone" and "limb by limb"
at the "Tea Sessions" the girls held . . . and were
classified as "Ummmmmmmm, sayl!" . . . "Not Bad"
. . . "Will do in a pinch" . . . and "l'd rather stay
home and read a good magazine!" . . . And isn't this
the year we got stabbed in the back by the japs? . . .
Well, we'll show them . . . How??? . . . Well, we
baled paper, newspapers, cardboard, and even maga-
zines . . . We sold Savings Stamps and Bonds . . .
We registered men for the draft and rationed sugar,
too, . . . ANYTHING for OUR country!!! . . . Well,
let's see what we had to get this year . . . calling cards,
rings, invitations, evening gowns, and . . . and . . .
just loads of things . . . How did we pay for them?
. . . Oh, we had them sent' . . . C.O.D .... Call On
Dad!!! . . .Oh Boy!!! . . . There's the Prom . . .Every-
time you see someone in the hall your heart starts
"palpitating" to swing time . . . you know what I
mean . . . That night will live long in our memory
. . . everything except what Pa said when we came in
like a culprit at 4 A.M .... Well, it's time to go,
friends . . . Commencement's here . . .and you can
hear the faculty breathe a sigh of relief . . .problem
children, weren't we . . . and l thought they would
be sorry to see us go . . . From school some got edu-
cations, others got experience . . . some got heart
trouble . . . a few got A's . . . many got Special Re-
ports . . . But we all have our memories.

Mr. Engle was a pioneer Gary teacher, having come as a chemist from the Corn
Products Company in l908. During the early years he not only taught chemistry at Emerson,
tut he was also City Chemist. He later became a chemist for an oil refining company at
Tulsa, Oklahoma. He also worked as a chemist for the Carnegie-Illinois Steel Company.
He came to Froebel School as a teacher of chemistry in 1927.
Mr. Engle was well trained as a chemist. He had a pleasing personality. He was well
liked by both teachers and pupils.
CHARLES S. COONS
Mr. Engle was a real teacher because he was first a real man. From years of intimate
acquaintance I am convinced that he used science as a tool to teach and enrich character
and never exploited character to teach science. He possessed a simple, sturdy Christian
character that put practice before precept, and honesty before hypocrisy. He was therefore
a living example of the scientific principle of justice and trustfulness that he taught. No
one can think of Mr. Engle except in terms of a good and useful life.
N. P. RICHARDSON
With the passing of Mr. Engle, Froebel School lost indeed a good friend and a faithful
teacher. Those of us who worked with him as fellow faculty members for many years know
and value his loyalty to our school and his kindly, unfailing interest to his students.
Mr. Engle was a gentleman. We shall miss his many good deeds.
Though Mr. Engle has left us, his fine teachings and kind ways will always linger in
our hearts and in our minds.
