The raw material is then brought in, and the artisans began to work on it: first, the rough phase - the cutting, the shaping, the grinding: then the future product undergoes the finer treatment - the polishing. smoothing, and finishing. Finally, the finished product emerges - embellished, highly attractive, very saleable - another very successful product on the market of the world. Here, at Gordon Technical High School, every student is considered as raw material to be worked upon to produce the "finished man" - a man truly in the image and likeness of God, who can enter the market of the world and make it better by his influence. The first year is like the planning conference at which the student is exposed to an all-around picture of what is before him educationally. The sophomore year is spent in shaping him by molding him to the desired form. In his iunior year, he becomes quite smooth so that now there remain only the smallest chips to be chiselled off with the tiniest of strokes of education. Finally, as a senior. he is ready to emerge as a Tech-ite of whom the entire faculty is proud and eager to send out into the future, fully confident that he will influence his environment for the better rather than be influenced himself by that environment to his detriment. O rs lf- A MISS Gi Ill THE GRAIIU HS Dear Graduates: During these four years you have been delving into the rich mines of wisdom and experience. Almost daily your teachers have pointed out to you the many vistas and labyrinths-any of which will lead to success ii you but follow them rightly. God grant that all of you reach successfully the goal lor which you are striving! Though you will reluctantly say farewell to the happy days spent within the walls ot leaming and bid Adieu to the teachers who have guided you through the years, to the classmates with whom you have made happy associations. you still will be bound by the sacred ties of your tour-year association in high school . . . ties which will grow stronger with advancing years. Let us remain true to God . . . grateful to teachers . . . and ever loyal to our beloved Alma Mater. Adieu! LOUIS GRACZ, C.R. Page Nine ' 1 THE REV. LOUIS A.

THE PUHPIISE lll Hlllll H0 The Founders of the Congregation of the Resurrection have left a rich heritage for their spiritual sons in the field of education. They have ever stressed that it is not information or purely intellectual learning which constitutes the end of education but rather character formation. This character formation was to be along supernatural lines so that the end product might be a Christian Gentleman imbued with supernatural principles. To accomplish this end, the tirst task of a student in school will be to learn to labor. This they considered more important than a pure Page Sixteen acquisition ot knowledge or the passing of examinations. A studious, diligence is a trait impressed in the soul for all time, an accomplishment for life. The supervision so necessary in education may be at times superfluous, and even harmful, if a pupil becomes habituated to do nothing without it. Hence to teach him to be industrious, even though control weigh heavily upon him to work. not from fear or even in view of superlative success in the classroom but from a sense of duty alone, is an achievement worthy of Christian education. This sense of duty is a monitor, as it were, whom nothing can supplant, and it may be truly said, that only he is well educated who hears and hearkens to the voice of this monitor in his soul. For a young man to acquire this perfect education, it is imperative, that he first learn to reflect within himself, become introspective, reckon with his conscience, iudge himself aright and in case of necessity even condemn himself, but above all, that he know how to be industrious, encountering adversity unflinchingly. As members of society, the students must be taught to become good citizens. However. they must be convinced that they cannot be good citizens unless they are good Catholics. They will serve their country best only when they get rid of their defects which each nationality has as its peculiar characteristic. RHIGIII Og.. I Fr. I. Ii11lf1'r.

HHIGIO The study ot Religion at the Gordon Technical High School receives the most important consideration because it and it alone prepares the Gordonite for the kind of lite that fulfills and reaches its final purpose. In view ot the impact of secularistic attitudes on the American way ot life, special practical as well as theoretical values are imparted to the student, so that forewamed as well as fore-armed, he can rise above the mediocre in whatever walk ot life he will choose.

Here at Gordon Tech, the two-year course f I in Mechanical Drawing is so set up that it will f develop the Gordonite's powers of visualization, strengthen his creative imagination, train him in precision and exactness of thought, teach him to read and write in the language of the Industries, and give him the practical experience of making working drawings.

In these United States. in colonial times, the woodsman and the wood-worker were busy with the cutting down of trees, hewing them into timbers. and the shaping of shingles for the homes that had to be provided for the early settlers. As civilization developed and the homes were provided, work in wood became an art. Today. the woodworker must be very skilful both with the hand and machine tools to keep pace with the demands of modem living. The freshman at Gordon Tech is brought up-to-date with woodworking both theoretically and practically. He soon learns to select the materials for his proiect. to lay out and dimension the finest obiect. and to make as well as read blue prints. The numerous proiects in the woodshop give him the opportunity to acquire a dexterity with both the hand and machine tools. llvlul in lu'f'p1u'uliol1 for zruml lrunnung So'phom0rvs preparing uquipmvnl and material for prujvvlx Nl CHI l SHUI' At the beginning it is iust a round piece of steel, somewhat dusty and sometimes stained.

Selection of the material. the cutting and shaping processes. grinding. tempering, and polishing - iust a few oi the processes in the making of a hand tool.

HHIIHIII SHUI' Electricity, in less than 75 years, has transformed our entire mode of living. Today, the modern home is a veritable "House of Magic". The invisible genie - the electron - at a flick of the switch - goes to work lighting and heating our homes and making them more comfortable to live in. This same genie, harnessed and controlled in the vacuum tube, or in the more modern transistor, fills our homes with music and song and floods the living room with pictures of world-wide events and progress as soon as they are happening. The iunior at Gordon Tech is introduced to electricity both in theory and in practice. The course is so designed as to impress the student with the importance ot a knowledge of electricity. Since all of us live so dependently on electricity, it is important to know as much about it as possible, that it may the more easily and more efficiently be put to work as America's magic servant.

Page Twenty-Eight Ultl SHUI' The automobile industry had a banner year in 1955. It was a tar cry from the year 1900 when automobiles began to be produced in some quantity. Today it is at its biggest. With this growth of the industry there developed a problem of maintenance - faster and more efficient repair. Today, even the mechanic must be familiar with certain scientific equipment which will facilitate his work. And this is more true for the automotive engineer who plans to work in the industry which is fast undergoing automation. The Auto Shop at Gordon Tech offers an exploratory course to the student to acquaint him both with the production and the maintenance of the automobile. Well equipped in engines of all types, the shop gives the student ample opportunity of working on them and carrying out the various tests which prove the power of an engine.

A much fuller and protound appreciation of God's infinite wisdom is the result of the study of Nature that He created. The study is supplemented with numerous proiects to enable the student to acquaint himself practically with the adaptability of scientific theories to practical living.

The student learns that the right ot voting is not only a privilege but an obligation as well. He also learns that the exercise of this right in later years can spare our country from a fate similar to that met by nations behind the iron and bamboo curtains.

With the concentrated effort for an "all-out safety" program in Illinois, Gordon Tech introduced the Driver-Training course which embraces both the classroom and road phases. Stress is laid here to engender proper attitudes concerning man and the auto. Courtesy and safety-first. along with an alertness to driving conditions, might be called the theme of this course. Emphasis is placed upon the fact that driving is not a right, but a privilege to be exercised conscientiously.

Immediately upon his entrance to Gordon Tech until the student leaves her portals as a graduate. his physical welfare is supervised with the greatest care. All forms ot intra-mural sports are provided, in addition to the regular Gym and Health classes. Team-work becomes a by-word to the student as he learns that, despite his excellence, he still has need of others in a contest. He learns tolerance of others to the extent that he tries the harder to make amends for the lacks of others. Above all he is forced to make quick and definite decisions which make tor that flexibility of mind to adiust to the most unexpected of circumstances. The Health Class provides him with the theoretical as well as practical knowledge for the care of his body which makes the life of the whole man so much easier both physically and spiritually. Hr.

Sllllll T CHU Cll The program ot student activities has been expanded during the past year by the formation ot the Student Council by which self-government was put largely into the hands of the students. There seems to be no better way to learn the priceless ideals ot true democracy than to put them into practice and make them work. Although supervision still is vested in the authority of the school, the students have the opportunity to help in its practice - thus making it a government ot the students, for the students, and by the students.

The present senior class is the first that enrolled at the newly founded Gordon Technical High School four years ago: the two previous graduating classes originally had enrolled while Gordon Tech was still a technical branch of the Weber High School. With the change in name came autonomy for Gordon Tech - autonomy from Weber High School. Our present seniors learned the lesson of independence well and early. Supplemented by their study of American History and Civics, they used this lesson during their senior year to give to the student body a small part of self- government by founding with the permission of the school authorities the Student Council, a new first at Gordon Tech. When the seniors of 1955-1956 first entered the new Gordon Tech they were iust as imbued with the making of progress as was the school itself. There was a great deal to accomplish, and it was largely due to their efforts in the Magazine Sales Drives of 1952 and 1953 that large contributions could be made for the schoo1's first football equipment. the school bus, and the initial equipment of the school band. So, as we grow older and are about to leave Gordon Tech, we have a large number of very fine memories to recall. The finest of these, however, is the memory that we have remained faithful to all the fine traditions that were begun by those who came before us. Such, for example was our Cisca Holy Hour Activity which continued to bring the Cisca Boys' Banner back to Gordon Tech month after month.

It affords the students facilities for the exercise ot their literary and oratorical' abilities. Working together with others as a unit the Gordonite learns the spirit of co-operation. The fruit of this year's dramatic effort was seen in the first stage play presented by the "Masqueteers" in "Brother Orchid," written by Leo Brady of Catholic University of America.

They also proved financially successful, so that worthwhile contributions could be made to other activities which do not have similar financial returns. Probably the principal reason why skating parties are such well-liked activities is because there is never any dearth of girls. The skating party is a very important tool for the social growth of the Gordonite. Students from most of the surrounding schools are invited and the skating party becomes a "Mecca" for meeting new faces and making new friends.

Dancing proves a most interesting pastime for the typical Gordon Tech-ite. A number ot dances, beginning with the most popular "Kick-off" Dance which is held iust prior to opening the annual football season, are always well attended. It is getting to be quite traditional at Gordon Tech to have one or more celebrities. of Radio or TV, attend the dance. It is also a way for the Tech-ite to grow out ol his stumbling adolescence gracefully and enter young manhood without too much ot a mental upheaval . Well-supervised by the religious and lay faculty of Gordon Tech, the dances seem to grow bigger and bigger and more popular with each succeeding dance. ii df 3 H . Q Mrs. ll.

Another school year - and another Senior Class leaves the halls of Gordon Tech - this time as graduates. Like the commencement exercises in previous years. so too, this graduating class wished to make their commencement exercises from the beautiful St. Stanislaus Kostka Church, where for the last time as a group, the graduates might render humble thanks to the Source of Wisdom for His untold blessings through the four years and invoke in all humility His never-failing help for the more difficult and uncertain future. Strengthened by the Presence of Him Who is in the Tabernacle, as well as by the presence of those who love them, our Seniors will leave the church with a courageous smile, knowing that they have the best example of facing their problems in Him Who became tor all the Model and Pattern to be imitated.

But, coach Joe Osmanski's 30 players-including injured co-captain Steve Horvath, for whom the -Rams "played" yes- terday's 13-6 triumph over St. Philip-weren't around for the demonstrations. This upset overshadowed St. Georges 12-O win over Fenwick in the North-Central section feature of the day at Soldier Field. The Rev. Louis Gracz.

This sport serves as an outlet for many students who cannot participate in other sports because of force ol circumstances.
