EX LIBRISTHE METEOR _ a S3 11• "is ; • i _ _ ' • ■ PUBLISHED BY THE SENIOR CLASS OF THE HARLEM HIGH SCHOOL NINETEEN HUNDRED FORTY-FOURHarlem Consolidated H i f( h School Foreword A country "of the people, by the people and for the people" is naturally filled with life and duty. The press throughout its history informs the reader that local, state, and national administrations require eternal vigilance. Deeply cut headlines, conservative headlines, bold type headlines—all serve as reminders that each day is important. If they are universally filled with purpose, with honest work, and with charitable thinking the headlines blazen forth happy situations. The public schools have a great role to play in such a democracy. The students are their precious cargo and the headlines they learn to flash world-wide depends proportionately upon the Light and Truth that permeate the curriculum. nineteen hundred and forty-fourHarlem Consolidated High School Dedication History abounds with stories of heroism. Some have been sung, others unsung. We Americans have always enjoyed the story of Israel Putnam who left his plow in the furrow to join the Revolutionary forces in the fight for a land of the free. And history repeats itself. Today's stories of American heroes are legion. "They hazard all in Freedom's fight— Break sharply off their jolly games, Forsake their comrades gay And quit proud homes and youthful dreams For famine, toil, and fray." To DON BURDICK, DALE CLARK, ED KIELY, RONALD BIRD, and TED BOGGIE who laid aside their school books so that all youth may dream dreams, we, the class of 1944, proudly dedicate this Meteor. nineteen hundred and forty fourDREE CLRRK OON BUROICK HRW RONAIO BIRD 1EDBOGGIE RRM MR CORPS MARINE CORPS a r I e m C onsolidated li i u h School "AMERICA IS A PLACE WHERE BOYS LIKE JACK, CHUCK. MIKE, KARL, TONY. AND ISADOR ARE SAYING. 'OX. YOU GUYS, THIS IS UP TO US. LET'S GO.' AND. DON'T FORGET. THAT OUR AMERICA IS OUR PROMISE TO THOSE BOYS!" Many a time have we sung and many a time have we read the poem by R. L. Stevenson in which occur the lines: Home is the sailor Home from the sea— The song and the poem are beautiful, melodious, and rythmic. We must confess, however, that the words were words. The thought held no real significance we are ashamed to say until— Yes, until one day a rap sounded on our door, and who should be there but one of our own sailors. How long? "Home for fifteen days" and that accompanied by a happy smile—At last here were realities and unconsciously on our way to class we hummed the familiar tune "Home is the sailor." Since that first call we have had many visits from our wonderful soldiers, sailors, marines, coast guardsmen—from the boys of every branch of the service. Never a word of complaint from these heroes. Occasionally a nostalgic "I wish I were in school again." "I wish it were all over with, and we could all come home"—But usually an assured "Swell." "Getting along fine!" "I'm learning coordination." "I'm given opportunities that may never have come my way." There is always evident a strict observance to duty and thoughtfulness of fellow service men. "I'm sorry I can't answer"— "Military secret, you know" are the courteous responses to the too direct interrogations. nineteen hundred and forty-fourHarlem Consolidated High School Oh, what a precious cargo in the care of Uncle Sam! The Joshua, Calebs, Horatio Nelsons, and Stonewall Jacksons of modem history! We are going to mount the few pictures we received so that the reader will have the pleasure of seeing them in the Meteor. No one can really know how very happy we are to see our boys; but when we consider their sacrifice, we realize how feeble are our assignments in comparison. We notice tho service stripes! Veterans of foreign wars! Veterans! The very word connotes the dignity of years—and what do we see but the essence of youth- We've read Guadalcanal Diary. The Battle Is the Pay Off, Here Is Your War, and when these boys stand before us. we just have to touch their uniform, feel of their medals to make sure that they arc real. Yes, the characters of books come to life even though, as one hero said, "The movies and the books cannot tell the heart's story." By no means can we break faith with Harlem's service men. We are indebted to each boy represented on our service flag. This debt cannot be paid in dollars and cents. It can only be paid by real living. We can make of our school a sanctuary where real principle reigns. Our life, too, should be as well ordered as that of the boys. There should be punctuality, earnestness, sincerity, honor, cleanliness, godliness—all these in the superlative. Why? They need to observe these qualities to that degree, and under horrible conditions. We live without molestation. And when we live so abundantly, then can we honestly "lift up our eyes unto the hills", and know that they need not fear "the terror by night nor the arrow that flieth by day.” Then can we say with the poet, "I say to these, weapons reach not Life." We salute our boys! Wherever they are, God bless them! nineteen h u n d r e d and f o r t y - o u rH a r I t ? rn Consolidate ? d High School Table of Contents FOREWORD DEDICATION METEOR STAFF ADMINISTRATION FACULTY DEPARTMENTS CALENDAR ACTIVITIES ATHLETICS CLASSES nineteen hundred and forty-four a r I e m C onsolidated High School Meteor Staff EDITORS Helen Picken Herbert Greenlee Marion Hutchins Roger Minns Carolyn Ralston David Hurlbert PHOTOGRAPHERS Charlette Dalton Carroll Van Anda Helen Davis Roger Board Betty Medaris June Wilson FINANCE MANAGERS Mervyle Smith Maxine Edwards David Sundstedt BUSINESS MANAGERS Jim Eckman Charles Henley Sam Roskie Beulah Jensen Dawn Peterson Priscilla Hyzer Dorris Margason SPONSOR Leona B.

And most of the students never pause to think of the greasing, oiling, and checking that make them run smoothly—with no grating or jarring. The stoker keeps everyone comfortable on the sub-zero days; the new paint job is restful and decorative; the lighting adjustment is easy on the eyes; the course of study meets all needs; the daily program runs without a hitch; the decorating in the auditorium delights all audiences; extra curricular activities are sandwiched without great interruptions; the new floors deaden the mighty tread; the guidance department points out right directions; the Music and English class room records arouse greater appreciation of the Arts; the Augustan pictures, hangings, and new furniture brighten the comer; new and better equipment in every department is inspirational. All the parts fit perfectly into the whole pattern. nineteen hundred and forty-fourHarlem Consolidated High School The more harmoniously a business operates the less apt is one to look to the sources from whence comes the even tenor of administration. The Class of 1944 wish to go on record giving credit where credit is due. Mr. Hovey, our Superintendent, has worked faithfully and tirelessly to give to the school splendid working and real living accommodations. Orchids to Mr. Hovey and an especially heartfelt tribute from students and teachers. nineteen hundred and forty-fourHarlem Consolidated II i a h School The Faculty An apple for each one of our teachers.

YV cu vw©»to«L.Harlem C onsolidated High School Departments To read the articles in the education magazines for the last four years helps to interpret the handwriting on the wall. Each issue is concerned with the changing curriculum. What Can the Schools Do summarizes the many headlines. At Harlem there goes on a "heap of livin'" because of the close teacher-pupil supervision. From eight to any hour before twelve midnight the school home of the students is busy with curricular and extra-curricular activities. If the student is diligent, the program can help him prepare for complete living in any kind of world. The Carlylean slogan is in order, "The greatest good to the greatest number." nineteen hundred and forty-fourHarlem Consolidated High School To register the informal chatter of students living in the 1943-1944 period of history, we use our visit through the halls and classrooms as a topic. A METEOR EDITOR INTERPRETS THE DAILY HUM OF HARLEM'S MACHINERY— First of all. let's pop into the office and visit our genial master, Mr. Hovey. What, not in? Well, behind that tremendous pile of letters and documents we can almost find our pretty little secretary, Nellie Olson! We never spy our mistress but what she's smiling her usual Colgate smile. Nellie, don't give up the ship! Navy orders! We'll see Mr. Hovey later. What do you say we buzz downstairs and sort of peek into the various rooms to see what's cookin'? HHHmmmmm! Smells like food! You guessed itl Here's Miss Lola Barkley dressed up fit to cook—cooking what did you say? Don't tell me it's lemon pie! Our future Misses Housewives seem to enjoy mixing, measuring, and making with the mince meat. And who wouldn't love to stir the batter in our cozy little kitchen trimmed with colorful posters, and furnished with General Electrics? Miss Barkley is doing a super job of giving these future little homemakers the once-over in everything from soup to nuts! She also guides the group in snapping, snipping, and shirring—in other words, the art of sewmg. Hats off to our gallant grinders and the best to Miss Barkley! Let's wander across the hall and see what's up in the gym. Well, looks as if the "ferns" are getting the workout under the direction of Mrs. Doyle. She informs me that the "Bloomer Girls” are challenging the "Wolverines" in a tough game of volleyball. She's certainly doing a marvelous job of building our paint and powder beauties into healthy future women of America. Here's to you and to a grand group of gorgeous girls! While we're so near lets slip back and see how the demons of the jig saws are prospering. We mean, of course. Mr. Young's manual training class. These little shavers are getting broken in—just learning a few of the tricks of trade that trick the trader into trading. Well, Mr. Young, keep 'em chipping off the block! "Night and Day—you are the one' — Sounds as if those sweet sopranos are off on another song "swoon." Mr. Alrutz has these "crooners" well on the way to Broadway. No kidding! They're all right and so is their maestro! We have him to thank for our grand Thanksgiving program, operetta, and all the other sweet note performances. The fellows also put in their do-re-me's, the mixed chorus hums along, and our orchestra beats out to the wand of our music master. Ever want to hear a song—just get within two miles of room 8 every afternoon and you're bound to be out of this world 1 nineteen hundred and o r t y - o u rHarlem Consolidated High School Room 9. as a matter of fact, has a mathematical atmosphere with the equations and formulas around the walls of the room. Mr. Horn coaches the Freshmen in their x , y,. and r3's and is certainly packing the wisdom. While we're here we should stop in and see Mr. Moore, who has his office next door. "Hello, there!" We usually find our Dean of Boys in a humorous humor, or something. Besides dishing out Washington's maneuvers and Boone's boomerangs, he also passes out the zero hours. So if you go A.W.O.L. you will know where not to go! In Room 8 our fellow schoolmates are cramming their heads full of is or are, was or were, verbs, nouns, adverbs and so on into the night. At the desk we see Miss Walker, our chief librarian. She has volunteered to show us the library personally. Up three flights of stairs to our expansive store room for literary-inclined students where hundreds of books have found their places on the numerous book shelves; and thanks to Miss Walker's love of knowledge, no one will ever be able to "drink the cup to the bitter dregs." Here's a toast to our magnetic Miss and to the Junior librarians for dusting off the rusty Anglo-Saxon histories! Right across the hall we hear that unmistakable pound. No, it's not buzz saws or carpentry class. You have it! Miss Pettis' Senior Typing class. The same Miss Pettis! The same "good" jokes! Her industrious pupils soem to reflect her charms with that unhappy look on their faces as if something were wrong. Oh, no. that couldn't be! Typing is such an agreeable subject (so it says here). We give a great big bow to our popular Dean of Girls and, truthfully, we couldn't imagine Harlem without Miss Pettis or versa-visa. In Room 23 what do we find but our sweet little trigonome-triss, Miss Valentine, voted by the fellows of Harlem "The Girl You'd Most Want to Solve an Equation With." Mind you, they learn their trig or bust! (Shucks! Did I forget to mend that tear again?) The best of luck to one of Harlem's most efficient teachers along our path to success! Keep those Girls-Scouting! Farther on down the hall we'll peek in for a moment on Mr. DeCamp's history class. Here they are outlining miles of Mac-Arthur's maneuvers and seem to be enioying it. Mr. DeCamp has a way with you that gets you—sooner or later. Keep 'em cramming, Mr. DeCamp! We're with you! Another few feet and — "Well, that's not the odor of roses." Oh. it's just Mr. Sontag's chicks. Come on in and see our menagerie, or aquarium—anything from ants to anthropology! The students seem to be working Experiment No. 7. Gas masks and everything! It's really quite calm, and loads of fun for these vibrant, future chemists. It is reported that Mr. Sontag has the most complete classroom in the country. Here's to a perfect exhibit! More fun! More Science! nineteen hundred and forty-fourHarlem Consolidated High School Hey, I'll bet we're just in time to see the Coach give the old work out on the ball. Escalator south and—well, right-o! Those sharpshooters are pronto on the beam—buckets and more buckets—and we don't mean oaken ones! This man Lotzer is really the frosting, and we're sticking by you, Coach, all the way! Up to Room 16! Miss Bartling and her Soph history class are digging into those ancient pyramids. Well, don't dig too deep. It's almost time for the bell! Miss Bartling certainly has her winning ways with the student body. Just be sure to keep 'em winning! What-do-ya-say we walk into Miss Meier's Orchid Room. And whom do we encounter first but Mrs. Stamper, retired from her English classes and doing something concerning Emerson's philosophy. "Hello.'' Here we meet another sweet and charming Mrs. who is devoted to our Alma Mater and to the school paper, "The Pepper," which she sponsors. Can't you tell by the sparkle in her eye, she's up to something? We're counting on you and that sparkle, Mrs. Stamper! After goodbyes were said to Mrs. Stamper, Mrs. Jones was greeted. The Junior Play, The Pepper, The Prom — my, how beautifully she presided! Thanks a million for your sincere concern for our welfare. "Caesar dixit!"—The Augustans are slaving away at—well, you know, and who is leading his victories but our leading lady. Miss Meier. Not only does she look into the future, "drool" on Shakespeare, direct dynamic plays, but she has also set up a military objective and has us pinch-hitting on our pre-induc! Here's to our gallant Meteor advisor! And fellows—when you're furlough bound, you'll know that when you strike Room 14 you've struck home! There's a hospitality sign on her door! A toast to our sky-high Miss, and millions of bright banners to her ever-encouraging way! Out into the hall and—well, if we don't meet our "man about school," Mr. Hovey. He's busy all right, as usual, but never too much so, to stop for a few exchanges of what have you about the weather! Down in the hearts of every student there dwells the utmost respect for our superintendent. To our superior for making every possible chance to success, achievement to joy and happiness, we thank you from the bottom up! As the class of '44 graduates, we leave with an infinite desire to better ourselves and humanity, a challenge to use our ability to attain the highest possible goal, and an ever-soft spot in our hearts for all our classmates, teachers and Mr. Hovey. Yes, we will think back to the happy and the serious moments that filled our years here, and we will thank God for such blessings! ninete e n hundred and f o r t y • f o u r SltttTBWTERCHERS CLRSS PR.CS OtWTS H CLUft MICT5 WHRT LL -V fl WORKING WWO? boy scouts THIS n 6HT BE YOUHarlem Consolidated High School Red Letter Days August 30— All fellows and girls are welcomed back to "ole Harlem High".

September 10— Freshies jump on the wagon after a strenuous eve of witchery! October 18— After a sensational victory over Harvard, the H-Club came through with Wally Scott and a touch-down theme. October 25— Super Soph salesmen go over top in magazine sales. Seniors rate second; Juniors and Freshmen, third.

November 5— An unforgettable evening spent in the Harlem gym for all those who saw "Don't Darken My Door" presented by the Senior Class. November 10— The student body gathered in the auditorium in memory of that November 11, twenty-five years ago. A very appropriate and fitting program was arranged by Mr. Hovey.

Adios! nineteen hundred and forty-four II a r I e tn Consol i daft ? d II i s' li School ACTIVITIES The Pepper Right from the start we've banked our left rudder a little to the south—vision clear—and settled for a smug landing pronto on home base! Then and there. Commanders Dorothy Barkley and Margaret Hougan take over the situation and keep it well in hand too. None of that cold potato stuff; they're right on the market with plenty of homemade hamburgers and torrents of "droolish" goings on. And what do they have to show for it?— you've guessed it—a new model '44 "Pepper" with "oomph" plus. These Joy Jills did plenty of wishful thinking, a little imagining, some down to earth mathematics which equals the edition you pay those frosty nickels for. Playing under cover job, Mrs. Stamper sort of runs the footlights, and we'll admit she can shade the bright spots. Of course, the staff plays a major role in supplying the hum-drum for the star-eyes department. And right along with Da Vinci are Dawn Peterson, Doris Larsen, and Joyce Huss. Our roving reporters— and do they roam!—consist of Janice Corrigan. Vivian Rogers, Dorothy Haye, Ruth Haugen, Rogene Ryberg, Dorris Margason, Wanda Cline, Marion Hutchins, and Roger Minns. And with a beat, beat, beat of the typewriter we find Mervyle Smith, Arlene Edwards, Madgeline Loy, Herbert Greenlee, Beulah Jensen, and Helen Picken. Maxine Edwards makes out as the Minute-Miss, and Eugene Taylor takes over with dollars and sense! During the spring months Mrs. Jones boarded the P-38 to bring us home on the beam! We'll have to admit these wrens are really on the wing! To a great staff, wonderful editors, and grand sponsors—we rank you Lieutenant plus and thanks for a powerful paper! Music Clubs "If music be the food of love, play on—give me excess of it!" Harlem audiences have never had an excess of Mr. Alrutz's good music. The glee clubs and orchestra have given pleasant and entertaining programs, no matter how quickly they had to plan them. Mr. Alrutz taught us to love music. The aims of this department are to develop a general appreciation for all forms of music through listening and participation, and to make well-developed personalities and citizens by listening for the music of the spheres. Besides the many lovely programs, the clubs presented the musical comedy- And It Rained. A lovely performance. nineteen hundred and forty-fourH a r I e m Consolidated High School The A.O.A. As a final project for the Speech Arts unit, the Senior English classes organized a live club, long agitated by former English IV students. These young people felt that in order to realize the universality of art, to develop latent talents, and to raise the scholastic ideal, Harlem students should be given an opportunity to work together in a club designed to develop these objectives. On January 11, 1944, the constitution was adopted, and the following officers elected: David Sundstedt, President; Margaret Hougan, Vice Fresident; Priscilla Hyzer, Secretary; Carolyn Ralston, Recording Secretary; and Mike Getts, Treasurer. The folowing Activities Committee was appointed by the President: Helen Picken, June Wilson, Eleanor Mollgren, Charlotte Dalton, Gene Oswald, and Herbert Greenlee. As was thought, the talents were many, the enthusiasm multiplied and every one is anticipating great things for the Admirers of Arts Club. Although this club was organized under the supervision ot Miss Meier, all teachers can give guidance in the work. The H Club On the highways and byways, streets, busses, trains; in fact, everywhere for miles around you see the letter ”H" sewn on sweaters worn by stalwart young men. If it is an orange "H" on a field of black—the wearer, no doubt, is a Harlem athlete. To be a Harlem athlete under the coaching of Ray Lotzer means something. Coach Lotzer, with classic ideals, develops manhood. The game finely played and won is indeed a victory; but above all, the game finely played—win or lose. The Meteor goes on record to say that to athletes and spectators alike Coach Lotzer’s talks were a stimulus to better living. The club was officered by Roger Minns, President; Sam Poskie, Vice President; David Hurlbert, Secretary and Treasurer; Gerald Van Landingham, Sergeant-at-Arms. Industrial Arts Club Under the supervision of Mr. Young, the lads are making enough usable articles for a supply house to carry. Their place of business is always in order and efficiency prevails. The officers are: Presidents—Gordon Adams, W. Weyrauch Vice-Presidents—M. Anderson, J. Eau Claire Secretary—H. Burdick Treasurer—J. Kolhurst, J. Miner Note the department grow by leaps and bounds. nineteen hundred and forty-fourHarlem C o n s olid ated High School The Plays "Try-outs"—a week of them; "Practices"—six weeks or more of them (day and night) and then "Footlights"—two performances. Lots of hard work fcr the coaches and actors, but oh! the satisfaction. On November 5, 1943, coach Miss Meier presented the Senior play cast in a delightful drama "DON'T DARKEN MY DOOR." Many and profuse were the "orchids" given to these actors on their fine work. On March 29, 1944, Coach Mr. Horan and Mrs. Jones presented the Junior play cast in a rollicking comedy. "BEADS ON THE STRING." It was a performance long to be remembered for the splendid work —More orchids. The Augustans Augustus Caesar found Rome made of oak and iron and left it made of marble. The Augustans found the school drab and colorless, and each year are leaving it a bit brighter. They not alone wcrk hard to realize the objectives in studying a classical subject, but they also put their learnings into practical use. Neither have they forgotten their gallant service men, twenty-two Augustans, serving America. For them they have been buying bonds, and on the pay-off day in years to come there is no telling what they might plan for their conquering heroes—Caesar and Meier Dixit! The year's officers were: Consul, Agnes Pugh; Praetor, Mary Jane Kramer; Censor, Ruth Hougan; Quaestor, Verdell Larson. The Camera Club The genial sponsor of the Camera Club has been working faithfully to arouse and guide the interests in this marvelous act. One who can successfully work with the camera is an artist; and all the students who have been members of this vital organization have been introduced to a hobby or vocation that will give greater delight as the years pass. Deepest gratitude to you, Mr. Sontag. nineteen hundred and forty-fourHarlem Consolidated High School Cheerful Cheerers Books have been written on the effect of encouragement on human nature. To a conscientious soul a word of praise is like a tonic. To the athletes and. in fact, to all students of all departments the "yells” of our cheerful cheerers were an impetus to win in the respective fields. The average person is not aware of the hard work the cheer leaders give to their programs. It takes pep, energy, and dramatic ability to make them synchronize. To Miss Valentine, an indefatigable worker, goes much credit She has perfected the style and form of these cheerers. To the cheering squad goes our gratitude: Hazel Lundgren, Marilyn Lundgren, Louise Olson, and Gloria Wright. Fiffle Faffle Should we organize each study hall and give the resulting club a name, "Fiffle Faffle" might be a good one. The words sound meaningless, but just wait for explanations. In the study hall almost anything can happen: mathematic round tables; research in all fields of study; devotion to assignments; peaceful slumber; nervous restlessness; lipstick manipulations for securing the perfect cupid's bow; watch watching; a game of winkum; committee meetings; house cleaning; picture straightening; and so on ad infinitum. The Fiffle part of the name would indicate the positive, the Faffle, the negative element. Here's to Harlem's Fiffle Faffle. No orchids, of course, but a nice bunch of morning glories—they fade out at the end of the day, you know------ Vitamin Half Hour From 11:33—12:04, or thereabout, from Room 8—Room 25 is the period for refreshment. Enough of the life giving elements are partaken to assure at least a state of wakefulness for the rest of the day. The time is short but ample to hear the fragments of the morning's school news.

SGI OF ARMS Harlem Consolidated High School ATHLETICS Football HARLEM HAS SQUAD OF 40 PLAYERS! So ran the head-lines in the local paper from which we quote: "A squad of forty boys turned out for Harlem High and have been working daily since August 30 under the new coach, Ray Lotzer, formerly of Winnebago. A large part of the squad is light and inexperienced, but after the present injuries heal up, the first string may be a surprise to the North Six Conference.” And they were a surprise, to-wit the headlines: HARLEM DEFEATS HARVARD 13-0 HARLEM BEATS TOMMIES 19-6 HARLEM BEATS WINNEBAGO 13-7 HARLEM DEFEATS WEST VARSITY ”B" 20-0 This surprise is not a matter of luck. We must bow to Coach Lotzer who in his Aristotelean way gave the team the letter plus the spirit—and it's a winning way! The season's schedule was: Time Team Place They We September 17 Belvidere There 7 6 September 24 Marengo There 6 7 October 2 Harvard Here 0 13 October 9 St. Thomas 15th Ave. 6 19 October 16 Winnebago There 7 13 October 22 South Beloit There 0 19 October 29 West High ”B” Here 0 20 The lightweights chalked up good scores, never allowing their opponents a score. At Belvidere it was 19-0, at Marengo 27-0, at Harvard 7-0, and at St. Thomas 0-0. Since Captain Don Burdick was called to the service, Coach Lotzer appointed game captains for each game. The managers, Harry Perkins and Gene Sanders, followed the orders and team cum spiritu. NORTH SIX CONFERENCE STANDINGS Won Lost Pet.

Football and harvest moons! Football and those red ears of com! Pep, energy, hale, hearty, good nature. All the power and might of the ozone to "Hold That Line." O'Henry spoke of The Third Ingredient for good stews. For good football it takes the ingredient rugged wholesomeness, especially manifested "when the frost is on the pumpkin." In such an atmosphere there is apparent, ideally speaking, the spirit of "each for alL" The team is moulded into a fighting unit which plays as one instead of eleven individuals. The first games serve as testers. The few warm days, the hard practices after a long vacation produce a weariness almost approaching laziness—but it takes one glaring defeat to waken the gang. They bounce back with a snap—a resolve to balance accounts with their contestants. One group that receives no letter award is the Shower Room Quartette. Each night the sweet and sour tones upset the networks. "Show Me the Way to Go Home!" After the tenth performance in one evening, splat and splot goes a soaked towel followed by socks, jerseys or anything that will absorb water and is throwable. After the musicians recover from this brutal barrage, they good naturedly and gingerly give an encore. Harlem's halls reverberate with friendly vocal demonstrations— laughter, chatter, and singing. Yes, Football cements friendships. The best years of one's life! What we assimilate from practices and games—awareness, tenacity, courage, acuteness, consideration, punctuality, patience —are life long assets. —By one who played the game. nineteen h u n d r e d and forty f o u r Harlem C onsolida ted High School BASKETBALL Varsity No sooner was the football material stored away than sixty-five boys reported for the 1943-1944 basketball team, thirty-two were retained by the squad after December 1. The Varsity Squad was composed of Dick Dresser, F and Captain; Mike Getts, F; Dave Sundstedt, F; Wiley Kessinger, F; Gerald Van Landingham, C; Jack Cutler, C; Vem Anderson, G; Don Roush, G; Rog Minns, G; Don Thayer, G; and Herb Greenlee, G. Up until January the team was hampered by the loss of Mike Getts, scrappy little forward, and again late in January and all during the month of February, the team was either completely without the services of their star forward, Dick Dresser, or had his services for only limited periods because of a serious injury. For the second straight year, Harlem won the North Six Conference championship in both the Varsity and Lightweight divisions with the scores as shown: Varsity Scores: We They November 22 Alumni 28 30 December 3 West Rockford 23 39 December 10 Durand 50 31 December 14 Belvidere 48 50 December 17 Harvard 63 21 January 7 Marengo 33 30 January 11 St. Thomas 45 19 January 14 Winnebago 43 36 January 21 South Beloit 41 33 January 25 Durand 83 47 January 28 Pecatonica 50 35 February 4 Harvard 51 21 February 5 Pecatonica 41 28 February 8 Belvidere 38 52 February 11 Marengo 48 36 February 15 St. Thomas 45 37 February 18 Winnebago 62 26 February 25 South Beloit 61 37 March 1 Kirkland (Regional T) 45 36 March 2 West Rockford 37 72 One of the objectives of basketball is to build morale. When we work for this our rewards are positive—yes, and our attitude is positive. The philosophy and intelligence of our coaches, Mr. Lotzer and Mr. Crum, influenced definitely the living and playing habits, and above all, the spirit of the teams. nineteen hundred and forty-fourHarlem Consolidated High School Lightweight Basketball—1943-1944 The Harlem Lightweights again developed into a classy ballhandling team, and with flashes of scoring power won the North Six Lightweight Championship.

Yes, we go back in history since last year's Meteor promised this story for the 1944 issue. Harlem had a fairly successful season with the schedule of two track meets. The results of the Tri Meet at Belvidere with Harlem. Harvard and Belvidere were Belvidere, first; Harlem, second; Harvard, third. The biggest moment of the season was the North Six Conference Meet at the 15th Avenue Stadium. Harlem was the host of this meet. Because of the situation of transportation only three of the six schools were able to participate in the meet of the thin clads: Harlem, Harvard and Marengo. Harlem just ran away from their opponents with a very high score, Marengo finished second, and Harvard third. Harlem had twelve track men this year under the leadership of Coach Krahenbuhl. They are as follows: Vernon Anderson Martin Broman Ronald Bird Jim Dempsey Dick Dresser Wayne Erickson Mike Getts Roger Minns Douglas Perkins Donald Ray Carroll Van Anda Gerald Van Landingham Charles Henley Mile Shot put, Discus 100-Yard dash. Broad jump, 220-yard dash 100-Yard dash, 220-yard dash High jump. Discus, Pole Vault Pole Vault Hurdles Hurdles Broad jump.

That is th9 reason, the readers may have observed, for being a year late with the track news. Coach Lotzer said that the first track candidates will go out about the third week in March. Meets will be arranged with Rockford, East and West, Belvidere, Marengo, Janesville, the North Six Meet, and the District Meet. Returning track men for the 1944 season are: Vernon Anderson, Dick Dresser, Gerald Van Landingham, Carroll Van Anda, Jim Dempsey. Wayne Erickson, and Roger Minns. This group will be augmented by many underclassmen and fellows who were out for football. f ' f } 1 ; i GOLF Following and paralleling the Track activities will be the Golf Tournaments. Glen Niffenegger. Mike Getts, Leland Stoeck-lin, Alan Oyen, and Jack Hoffman will be out on the greens at an early date. Other aspring pros will follow suit. Watch the daily press for tournament news. nineteen hundred and forty-fourHarlem Co nsolid a ted llisli School THE G.A.A. As far back as history repeats itself, there have been ferns" who crave the out-of-doors, the anticipation of an all-day hike, with the crispness of the breeze against a rosy cheek, and the sing-song refrains that naturalize the situation. Yes, the chilly air appeals to every red-blooded American girl. The G.A.A. girls do just this—passing up an air conditioner or a fireside to brave the rain and snow. Toasting with tennis, arching with archery, shaking with skating, "symptoms” with soccer, heavy with hiking, and booming with bowling! Sounds a bit on the weepy side, doesn't it? Oh, but it isn't—not in the slightest! It's fun and plenty in the spinach department w th loads of calory plus. Engineering these strictly beamy gals is Mrs. Doyle, and she really knows her stuff, figuratively speaking. Marion Hutchins tops the "Prexy" position, while Vivian Rogers takes over when the "Prexy" isn't prevalent. Helen Picken puts to practice her flashy penwork. Carolyn Ralston keeps the enormous bank roll, and Mary Jane Kramer records the health laws and extra "cirric" activities. The other starry eyed damsels who manage what needs to be managed in the line of sport managers are: Maxine Edwards, pronto on the hikey side; Dorothy Haye, a socky with soccer; Doris Larsen and Mildred McKern, the demons of that strike and spare frolic (strike the ball and spare the embarrassment); and Mervyle Smith, who makes with a volley of fun. Our bucket scouts are Marian Rolston and Hazel Lundgren while Agnes Pugh is badminton harper. Babe Ruth at the bat is none other than Janice Gourley. "I shot an arrow in the air; it fell to earth I know not where"—Yes. that's Charlette Dalton looking for her sling shot again. Don't give up! You'll find it! These plucky gals have really got the spirit that goes to make for a powerful club. Each year the Freshies are initiated, and we do mean initiated! These beauties also produce an overwhelming "Girl Dates Boy" dance, winding up with the basketball tournament in April. The G.A.A. and the H-Club have played a sister and brother act this year and "co-op" was the main password. Well, electrons, you're tested high, and here's to another tip-top year! nineteen hundred and forty-fourH a r I e m Consolidated High School G.A.A.

It is particularly pleasant to thus review old memories when we realize just how "young" our ideas, our staff, our plant, and our products are today. In the midst of a definite campaign for properly serving the schools of 1944 it is gratifying to remember that we just as properly serviced the father and even the grandfathers of our present customers.
