Iifliterl and published by the senior class. Printed at Lane by the siudents of the
Lane Technical School. Chicago, Illinois
AN OPEN LANE-As the title suggests, this book has a very modest purpose.
It is primarily intended to bring to the general public as well as to whoever may
look through its pages, the activities and school life of Lane.
We hope to bring the reader into as complete an understanding as we can of the
type of work carried on by the educational staff of our school. It should bring relief
to the parents who have had the idea that the technical school in which their sons
became interested caused a strain on his regular life, without being of value aside
from a means of education.
There really is no excuse for not knowing the boys, faculty and administration of
our school, "AN OPEN LANE," whose lives are linked with ours more than we have
ever guessed. Probably there is not a citizen of our city who has not at some time or
other heard of at least one of the achievements of the School of Champions.
The contents of the book shall open your eyes to many things, and ere you close
the lost page, you will, at least, number on your list of interesting acquaintances,
countless facts whose existance you may never before even suspected.
To the graduates, the book shall prove an everlasting memento of their four years
at Lane. The characters in the story are wholly fictitious. However, they are
actually composites of all types in the school. They are not prototypes. They are
neither the acme of virtue nor the personification of vice. The boys do not all come
from the humblest beginnings and through industry and honesty rise to enviable
heights. They are not extraordinary in any great respect. We can truthfully say
that they are simply healthy, alert, young men of this generation, each boy with his
individual talents and weaknesses. The striking fact about the characters is their
resemblance to any number of modern American high school boys one meets in every-
day life. The characters chosen are typical of any Lane student. The instructive
and entertaining side of their high school life is symbolic of most of the graduating
Instead of compiling all of the incidents relative to high school life into a kind of
pointed record, the authors have woven the incidents into one continuous story. The
story centers about the scholastic activities of several young men from their entrance
into Lane until their graduation.
If this book succeeds in introducing more men and women to wider knowledge of
Lane and its policies, both, past and present, resulting in a greater interest and more
intelligent activity in their own life and education, its chief purpose will be accomp-

here is no royal road to learning
but there is an open Lane
The School Beckons
Well-, if it isn't little old Eric. Say, are you
going to Lane, too?"
"Yes, I decided to go to a technical school. Lane
happens to be the nearest one to my home. But
what brings you here, Harris?'
'tTo tell you the truth, pal, my father wanted me
to continue going to school. If I had my way I
wouldn't come near this place. Father wants me to
get an education. Of course, I might be able to
talk him out of it but my mother insists on putting
me through high school. She is always saying that
knowledge is power. To me, an education is a
waste of time and money. Why,-I bet I could get
a job right now if I wanted to."
"I see, but I suppose the only thing you fear is
the well-known wood shed. Otherwise you'd quit
"That just about covers it, Eric."
As the Division Street car neared the high
school, William Harris and Eric Johnson were re-
newing their friendship. They had been school-
mates once before at grammar school. However,
johnson had moved and the friendship was tempor-
arily dissolved- Now Eric was again speaking.
f'Tell me, Bill, where are we to report when we
do get there?"
"lim not sure, but I think someone told me to go
to the auditorium-wherever that is."
Harris was interrupted in his speech by a loud-
Sedgwick Street-Lane Tech! A rough scramble
for the exits of the street car ensued. Both chums
followed the seventy-five or more students and
would-be Laneites out of the car. As they looked a-
bout them they could see hundreds of boys waiting
to get into the educational institution. Boys were
everywhere, on window ledges, stairs and fences.
Groups of upper classmen conversed with their own
crowds. Every now and then someone would holler
out, "Another load of freshmen! Boy, do they look
green! Look at that little fellow. He must have
just graduated from kindergarten! Hello, Mike,
Hyah, boy!" -
A ringing of a bell broke up a part of the huge
crowd assembled around the school. It was class
time for last year's students. A wait of another
hour or so before the new boys followed the rest of
their kind into the school's auditorium. Though a
seat was not available, there was plenty of standing
room. Harris led johnson to a corner which was,
"There must be a couple of thousand kids in here,
"No, I don't think so. Well, maybe about a thou-
sand. That's about all they could get in here I
guess. Wait .... that teacher on the stage is trying
to say something- Listen."
'fQuiet, fellows. Please stop talking for a while.
Your cooperation is needed if we are to get through
with all of this business today. The sooner we get
this over with the better. Now listen carefully . . .
and when the name of your group is called please
leave the hall. All right, the first group on the list
is the two-year electric course. Two year electric
A heavy rustling of bodies and feet echoed
through the auditorium. A wait and then. . . "Two
year auto shop! Two year automobile course. Come
on, fellows, pep it up a little." Again the leaving
of a milling mob of first year boys followed his an-
nouncement. So it continued with all the courses
the school had to offer -until ...-. 'KF our year tech!
Four year technical course!" '
The two freshmen left the hall with a number of
other fellows. The group was under the supervision
of a teacher who led them into a drawing room.
Once inside, they registered their names and were
told to report the following morning at eight o'clock.
After this brief task was done they were dismissed.
However, instead of going right home they decided
to look over the school and its surroundings.
"Pretty big place, isn't it, Bill?"
"Yeah, too big if you ask me. How is a guy sup-
posed to know his way around this Place?"
"That's easy, a fellow told me that there are
even numbers on one side and odd on the other side
of the office."
"Isn't that a great help to me. Why I don't even
know where the office is. Well, here we are out in
the open again. Are you going to head for home?"
"No, let's look around a bit more. I want to see
what they are charging for school supplies in these
Another half hour was thus spent.
"Aw, come on, Eric, let's go home. I'm getting
"Okay, after all, weive got another day tomorrow-
Oh, yes, where will I meet you?"
"Meet me at the main entrance. On what-you-
may-call-it street? Sedgwick? Yes, thatis it.
About ten to eight. So long?
Page 12 The Lane Tech Annual for June, 1935
Bill Harris was the same rough and ready "Wise
Guyn at home as he was in school. Though he
claimed to know everything he really knew very
little. When he returned home from school the
first day he was greeted at the door by his mother.
"How do you like Lane, Billy?'l
"It's all right in a way, mom, but a feller gets
lost in the place. Besides, I think there are too
many kids going there. I heard one fellow say that
Lane has no districts. Do you know what that
means? Anybody in the city can enroll at Lane.
North side .... West side .... from anywhere- Gee,
you should have seen that auditorium today. Boy,
was it packed. Besides the building on Division
Street there are five other branches near the main
branch. I just wonder when they will finish the
New Lane at Western and Addisonf'
t'Now, be patient, Bill. I'm sure that theyire
trying to complete it as soon as possible. In that
way they can do away with the crowded conditions
that now exist. But tell me what else did you do to-
"Oh, we mostly walked around the whole building
looking into different rooms. For instance there
was one room which I liked pretty much. It was a
large wood shop in the basement. They also have
some wonderful machine shops that looked okay to
me- Say, mom, do you remember Eric Johnson?
The kid I used to pal around with? He is going to
Lane, too. I'm in the same room with him."
"What else did you see?i'
"We saw the print shops where the school prints
its own papers and magazines. They've also got a
bakery where they bake their own bread and pastry.
One funny thing about the basement is the small
tracks which are laid on the floor, they look like
they might be used for a miniature train. I guess
that they really are used to carry material to the
shops. And lockers .... Say, there must be a million
of them. Theyire all around in every hall in the
school. Let me see .... oh, yes, I think yould bet-
ter fix up a lunch for me tomorrow morning. I'll
get some coffee in their cafeteria?
"All right, son. Another thing, will you have to
take up gymnasium work?,'
"Well, mom, I can either take gym or R. O- T. C.
I haven't decided yet. Gym is better, though, I
think. It won't be so bad. One good thing is the
indoor track they have right in the gym."
Harris also discussed his new educational venture
with his father. However, though Mr. Harris made
his boy attend school, he really did not take a great
amount of interest in his son's future. The elder
Harris felt that Bill could get along somehow with-
out the pressure being applied. Mrs. Harris was the
one who had really been responsible for the welfare
of Billy. So ended the family get-together for that
The next day proved to be a memorable one in
the lives of the two freshmen. Eight o'clock began
their first official day at high school. The appoint-
ment fell through but they met in the division room.
Then began the tedious job of filling out cards ....
cards . - . . . and more cards. About noon the work
was finished and again the early dismissal. The
third day was spent in making out their program
cards. This proved a little difficult.
"Hey, Eric, how are we to know what teachers to
get? Look at all the ones We have to choose from."
HYou wonlt have to choose. You are going to
be given a program. There-the teacher is putting
it on the board already. Letis see .... IB English-
Algebra-Science .... I guess we better start copying
it. Wood shop-, that ought to be good. Mechanical
Drawing . . . Gym .... Looks like thatls all."
Johnson was right. Finishing his board work the
instructor began to give directions.
'KN ow, I have to divide the class into two groups.
The first three rows will get the early shift. The
rest will have to take the late shift unless you bring
a note from home which states that you are working
"Hey, Eric, what does he mean,-late shift?l'
"You won't have to worry, Harris, we get the
early shift from eight to two thirty. The late shift
is from nine twenty-six to four o'clock. It is really
the one you ought to get."
"Not for me. Who wants to stay in school till
four olclock. It might be all right in the winter
time or for fellows who want to sleep but I don't
By this time the class was finished with copying
its program and was awaiting further orders. They
were not long in coming.
f'Remember, boys, you must go to study hall dur-
ing your free periods. As for your lunch hour, you
go according to the group that you belong to. Iyll
put it on the board in the morning."
That ended the school work for that day- On the
morrow, however, the attendance of regular classes
according to schedule was begun. Harris, as usual,
tried to use his cleverness to the utmost. He decid-
ed that telling a teacher that one did not know his
way about the building, was a good excuse for com-
ing tardy. This alibi did not work very well after
a couple of days. After all, the teachers knew the
fropes' and one lone freshie could not attempt to
put something over on them. The first week was, as
Harris said, "Pretty soft. High school isn't so bad.
All the lessons were easy."
This fsoft' business wasn't to last forever, as the
two chums soon found out. There were problems
to be solved for math. Drawing plates had to be
handed in on time. Science had to be finished. Book
reports and homework for English. Bill and Eric
were indeed thankful when they had gym. This was
one place where written work was not called for.

As if the regular bothersome school work was
not enough, they also had to have several encounters
with Kurt Otto, a member of their division room.
Otto was a bully of huge proportions. He was con-
tinually picking on the smaller boys of his class,
he would think nothing of giving any of them a
push down the stairs if they happened to be in front
of him. When reprimanded for his actions by a
teacher the bully would offer a series of well-plann-
ed alibis and excuses. Both, Eric and Bill were a-
mong his 'victims'.
One day while working in the wood-shop, which,
incidently was Harris's favorite subject, they notic-
ed that Otto worked at the next bench-
"He better not try any of his funny stuff around
here today. l'm just in the mood to hit someone
over the head with this two-by-fourf'
"Don't get excited, Bill, he hasn't tried anything
yet. You would do better if you would watch what
you are doing. That piece of wood is getting
mighty small. You know what the instructor told
us. He said to shut off the band saw when we are
not using it."
f'Oh, all right, wait a minute. Keep your shirt
on. I'm not finished yetf'
While the pals were engaged in their conversation
Otto left his bench to get some varnish. He was
It was a large woodshop
just passing Billy when .....
'fHey, Bill, look out!"
In another instant Harris was sprawled all over
the floor, downed by a football tackle.
'fWhat is the idea?,' he shouted.
Now it was Eric's turn to speak although his
talk was very shaky.
"Phew! Boy, was that close!"
"What do you mean close?"
"Otto, the clumsy ox, had somehow got his feet
entangled in yours as he passed. Didnit you feel
yourself falling toward that saw?l'
"Gee, that's right. Thanks a lot, fellerf'
'fOh, itjs okay. Funny that the big guy didn't
even stop. He just ran by. It was all his fault,
HWhere did I put that chunk of wood, Eric? I'll
fix him! "
f'Wait a second, Hercules. What you are about to
do is the easiest way to get yourself into the disci-
pline room. You would probably get about two
weeks. You'd better forget it for a while."
General Science was interesting
The incident passed, but it was not soon for-
gotten by either of the two. The freshmen consid-
ered Otto as their worst enemy. To them, he was
a discourteous, fresh, unkind bully. He proved him-
self the most unpopular fellow in the division. Dis-
cipline did not hinder or stop him from engaging
in his favorite pastime, that of pestering the smaller
members of his division group. No one liked him.
His teachers took a dislike to his unfair methods
of twhat he calledl fun.
just before the Christmas vacation even Otto
was momentarily forgotten. It had been a hard long
grind for the two new boys. They awaited the brief
rest with an eagerness that could not be overlooked.
A week before Christmas the high school presented
a scene of hustling boys bringing canned goods and
food products to their respective division rooms.
To Harris it was all a mystery- He sought out
Johnson to get all of the 'dope'. Eric somehow al-
ways managed to get f1rst hand information on all
UAH right, Billy, I'll explain it to you. It seems
that Lane follows a very old custom. That of help-
ing out the less fortunate students. The school has
done it for many years. Every division room vol-
unteers to fill a basket or two of food. Each boy
donates what he can. The perishable food products
are bought with money which is also supplied by
the students and teachers. Only Lane students re-
ceive the help. Still other boys give the use of their
automobiles to deliver the baskets. In this Way the
entire student body helps to make it a merry Chris-
tmas for all. If you want, you can bring your dad's
car. What do you say, Bill? We need someone to
deliver the baskets in our division. Will you do it?"
"Sure, I think it can be arranged. Dad will bring
the car over for us?
The Lane Tech Annual for June, 1935 Page 15
"That's fine, go and tell the division teacher
So it was agreed upon that Harris and Johnson
were to deliver the baskets. This was to be done
the last day before the vacation. It finally arrived,
with it also arrived Sidney Epstein. Due to the fact
that he could not get a car for his division, he asked
if he might use Billyys. Harris consented.
'tNow remember, Epstein, the division is going
to be extended today so that we can get the baskets
packed. Right after division we leave. Say. . .are
you listening to me?"
ffCertainly, we get the division packed and then
leave the car in the basket. Isn't that right?'l
"No, you big dummox. Listen, if you are not
there on time you're going to carry your basket on
the street carl' That left Sid where he stood.
A visit to their own power plant
While the food was being packed in their room
the freshmen were discussing their new found friend.
'tllid you hear what that guy told me, Eric?
Leave the car in the basket--humph. I wonder
how he ever got to first grade."
'tHe probably stayed in there for eight years and
then he outgrew the rest of the kids. Naturally,
they would have to give him something for his
achievement. Having an unused diploma on hand
they decided to give it to him. And so to high
school comes Einstein's, I mean, Epstein's protege.
Welle-the baskets are ready. Grab the meat and
As they approached Bill's car they saw something
they could hardly believe. Epstein stood near
the car and he was on time!
"Well, well, so you're all ready to go?"

The two weeks of Christmas vacation passed as
if they were minutes. At least it seemed that way
to the school-worn freshmen. New Years passed
and the end of the first semester was coming to an
end, with much work to be done.
Epstein's ignorance was further demonstrated
when he bumped into Eric and Bill in the corridor
with a sad but true story.
"Listen," he said, "have you fellows bought any
of the study hall cards yet?',
"Study hall cards, you didn't fall for that one

I can go to study whenever I have a study period.

"Three, but I also bought some of these special

of all his subjects. For this reason he fiunked in
three subjects during the first quarter. Perhaps
that is why he became so adapt at signing his
father's name on his report card every five weeks.
Somehow Sid managed to pass in all subjects at
the end of the semester. Eric and Billy fared in
somewhat the same way. The three were among
the lowest in scholarship in their division. Although
Harris received good marks in wood shop and
science he did not do so well in the other subjects.

just as the newcomers became accustomed to
their fellow classmates, rooms, teachers and sub-
jects, the new semester began. The filling out of
innumerable cards was a procedure which had to be
repeated. Again the hubbub and the confusion of
incoming freshmen was witnessed by both, teachers
and students. New rooms-new faces-new
teachers-different courses of study. These were
among the first characteristics of the 1-A semester.
It was during this year that Harris was the victim
of somebody's prank. Billy was eating a cream-
filled tart when his arm Was rather roughly pushed
by another boy. To his amazement, he realized
that the tart and its filling was smeared all over
his face! The freshman had an idea the jostling
was done on purpose. However, the other lad was
a lot older and stronger. Billy let it pass. Then
he went to his locker. He discovered that Eric,
with whom he shared his locker, was standing near
'fWhat are you waiting for, Johnson? Why don't
you open it up?"
'fYou can open it if you want tof' answered
As Billy made his way toward the locker he saw
why Eric had not attempted to touch the lock. That
piece of brass was entirely covered with someonels
discarded cream tart! A tedious job of slowly re-
moving the pastry was now begun by the locker
partners. While doing this they realized that they
were the 'goats' again.
Eric and his friend were among the few unlucky
fellows who had classes in portables. Harris, as usu-
al, had found everything wrong with the make-
t'The fellow who named these the "Fireless Cook-
ers' was right about 'em. In the winter time you
freeze to death and in the summer you pretty near
smother. Together with that, the roof is like a
sieve. Whenever there is a storm the supposed tiny
holes seem to open up as if to receive the torrent.
What do you think of this portable idea, Eric?',
i'Well, Bill, you might be stretching it a bit but
you are just about right. Remember the cold spell
we had the other day? We had to run out of the
warm building into a cold portable and back again.
Nice way to catch a heavy cold. I hear they have
those uCookersl' at Adams and Franklin, too."
"Sure, theylre all around, but what else can they
do with all of the kids? I guess it is the only way
out. Oh, well, let's go to science."
Harris led the way toward their next class. He
had gone half Way around the building when he
exclaimed. "On the wrong side of the building a-

It was just about this time of year when young
Harris was beginnng to get fed up with school life.
He was discontented. Yes, he was a student of one
of the largest technical schools in the country but
what of it? Day in and day out work had to be
done-lessons prepared-oral recitations-very lit-
Very soon they heard of the radio club
tle time for recreation and fun. The work was be-
coming monotonous. Harris saw others as he saw
himself. All walking around in sort of dim daze.
Why were all of these boys coming to high school?
Because it was compulsory? Because of their
young age? After all, what price education? Sev-
eral times he had spoken to older boys who were
graduates of high schools throughout the city. They
were unemployed. Did their education do them
any good? Billy tried to answer these questions

but it was no use. He couldnt figure out the an-
swers. Now take yesterday, for example, he said
to himself. he had been given three days discipline- -
for what? lfor innocently playing catch in the
lunchroom. lf that wasn't enough, the teacher who
caught him also took the ball. The ball he had
saved money for by not going to a theatre for a
couple of days. Why couldn't they be human?
'l'here was that other incident in the cafeteria. One
day he had gone up there to eat. just as he was a-
bout to sit down a rough voice told him, "Saved,
buddy! " Several attempts to get a seat proved un-
successful. He ate his lunch standing. The follow-
ing day he tried identically the same thing. He was

him to get his work in on time. As if he wasn't try-
ing his best to do so. It seemed to Billy that they
were always complaining. He would give anything
to be back in grammar school, where he knew prac-
tically every teacher. In high school he only knew
the teachers where he had classes. Then also, there
was the discipline room, He had become acquaint-
ed with the teacher there. Harris was well on the
verge of giving up the whole business when Eric
told him of the Tech Prep Short Story Contest.
"Sure, Billy, you ought to enter it. You've a
good chance of copping first place. You are a pretty
good writer. I remember that story you wrote for
our grammar school paper. lt was a peach. You
never received anything for writing for that paper.

Besides, you might be able to get in good with our
English teacher. When she sees you a contest win-
ner she is sure to give you an "EH or HSM.
'tYeah, and then every time I would come into
the room I would hear half of the fellows saying,
"teachers pet!" No, not for me. Iive seen it hap-
pen too many times."
"So, you're yellow, huh? Got a streak down your
back. You can't take it-"
Eric knew that this would bring Harris around
to see his point of view. Bill was the type who
would do anything on a dare. In a moment this
kind of taunting brought the desired result.
UAH right, wise guy, I'll show you. I'll write a
story that will knock you off your feet. I won't
care what they say in the English class. When
does the contest end? How many words? Does
it have to be in ink?7l
"Wait a second, Edgar Wallace, I haven't all the
details but if you go to the Tech Prep Office they'll
give you all of the rules."
So Harris was officially entered in the contest,
several days and a week-end were conscientiously
spent in his effort to write a prize-winning story.
He was helped by his English teacher and at one
time he was allowed to read it to the class. The ap-
plause he received for his effort was deafening. If
this meant anything toward coming events, he was
sure to cop one of the prizes offered.
Harris anxiously awaited the issue of the Tech
Prep for the following month. It was in that issue
that the winning stories were to appear. However,
Bill was informed that his story was one of the
prize winners even before the issue was put out.
He was even more flattered when a Daily reporter
sought him out one day to give him a write-up in
the school paper. His name in the Daily while
still a freshman. The write-up is one of Harrisls
most treasured mementos. When the magazine did
come out Harris was the envy of his entire class.
Even the teacher congratulated him. Though the
hero worship did not last forever it made Bill take
a greater interest in his work. It certainly made a
fellow feel good to see some of his classmates point
him out as, t'That's Harris, the fellow who won the
short story contest."
Nevertheless, in the spring a young freshman's
fancy turns to staying out of school as much as he
can. The young author and his friend were no ex-
ception. A walk to the lake front in the morning
hours of a warm school day was a lot better than
staying in a hot portable. Or else they might take
in a show in an air-conditioned theatre. The matter
of signing one anotherls notes from 'fhomell was a
small detail which could be accomplished with a
little practice. Friday, the last school day was e-
specially suitable for taking the well-earned rest
from school activities. Harris could not see why
some boys would stay in a hot school room trying
to do their work when the out-of-doors was such a
beautiful place to play hookey.
However, there was always the return to studies
on Monday. Then the hustling to make up back

work. Drawing boards to be taken home and plates
to be drawn.
Though Epstein's company was not exactly pleas-
ing to Billy he still kept up an acquaintance with
The Lane Tech Annual for June, 1935 Page 19
him. The two Laneites were brought to school
every morning by Billy's father in his automobile.
Perhaps this was the reason why Harris should have
been on time every day. Still, there was the visit
to any of Sloppy Joe's establishments, where one
could lose his pennies by putting them in slot ma-
chines. It took some time before a student could
lose all the odd cents he had in his pocket- Besides,
there were others ahead of him. Naturally, time
would fly and the bell would ring. T hen it was all
up to whether Billy was in a mood to be on time
that certain morning. He usually was not.
Another frequent visitor to the hangout was Tom-
my Cook. He was, at one time, in the same scout
troop as Harris. Cook had worked hard and was
now an Eagle Scout while Billy was still second
class. When Tommy came to Lane he signed up for
the R. O. T. C. Military work had always interest-
ed him. He and Bill were together in several classes.
One morning the two were in their daily rendezvous
when Eric came in. Billy made a fairly good try
at introduction. When he finished he questioned
The library was always busy.
"What brings you here? From the looks of you I
thought you just got through running the mile."
'fNo, Bill, l just wanted to ask you if you are go-
ing out for the baseball team?"
f'You know I can't do that. I haven't a G aver-
"I don't mean the school team. I mean the divi-
sion room team We just started to organize and
we need a good hitter and you're it. As you may
know, we play all our games in Lincoln Park. Near-
ly every room is represented. During these games
the coach of the regular nine keeps a sharp look-
out for new material which he can use for his team.
Will you play?"
"Okay, it's a go."
Harris's division won their hrst two games. The
third game was a tough one with the opposition
coming out on top. Thus ended the interroom base-
ball for Will and Eric for that semester.
The official baseball season for the regular squad
began sometime later. A series of pep meetings to
L. ' v Aki
Students play Santa Claus.
encourage students to attend games were held. To
Bill it meant getting out of classes, The get-togeth-
ers were quite informal. The meetings usually open-
ed with a few songs played by the Lane band. Al-
ways there were cries of. . . More! More! Then
the cheer of HSeven rahs and a yeah band! All
right? It's a . . - . one .... two .... three!" The
assembly hall simply shook with the re-echoing of
the loud rahs. Speeches and pep talks were next in
line. The introduction of a few star performers on
the nine followed. Maybe they would say two and
sometimes as many as three words. Of course the
customary cheers led by some contortionist had to
follow every speech. Maybe a little more music
and then the adjournment. One of the puzzles en-
countered after each session was: How could that
bass horn player carry his instrument in and around
the many turns of the "lighthouse steps" to the
right of the stage? The drum player had the same
trouble. They never told anyone how they did it.
A professional secret, no doubt.
It was these pep meetings which made Harris re-
alize that he was a small yet very important factor
in the school. The freshman class was just as nec-
essary as the seniors. In his mind's eye Billy could
see how the cooperation of all was needed to make
the school a success. Whenever a project had to be
put over the entire student body was asked to do
its part in helping. Billy began to recognize the
fact that it was not just a matter of getting out of
a few classes that the meetings were held. They
were called for a purpose.
As Bill looked about him he could see boys of all
types, scholars, toughs, athletes and others. They
surely must be coming to school for some reason.
Then he got to thinking about himself. Had he
given his best? Oh, well, there goes the bell. What
a relief. No school work until Monday. Then he
remembered the science lesson. Oh, let it ride.
He could tell the teacher he did not have the page,
Page 20 The Lane Tech Annual for June, 1935

of it before? But wait, . . . wouldn't the second
quarter marks go in next week? Yes, he would
have to take his science home together with his

Naturally, when Bill brought his card home and
showed it to his mother she was not very pleased
with it. Seeing this, Harris decided to try to
remedy the situation and bring up his marks. He
tried Anderson's plan for doing homework during
the study periods. However, those forty-five min--
utes would just fly. Before he knew it the period
would be over and the work only half done. Still,
when the third quarter marks went in, Billy and
Eric, who had also been using Anderson's
received slightly higher marks than before. From

Anderson and asked to look at his card. Yes, there

Harris and the rest soon found out that they
could not rest on the laurels of the third quarter
About this time Bill had another run-in with
Kurt Otto. That student had kept out of the pic-
ture for a while but now he was back again, tortur-
ing the members of his Class anew. Due to the
scheming bully, Harris received an awful bump on
the head during a gym period. The chums put

anything until after a week. Then it was Johnson
who had the brainstorm.
"I have it," he informed his pal, "we'll fix Mr.
Otto good and plenty."
With this the two fell into an earnest conference
as to how they would go about it. Coming out of
the two-man huddle Billy announced.
'tI'll meet you right after lunch."
They finished their lunch and went towards a
portable where they had English. Otto was already
there. Kurt, as had been his custom, always was
among the first in the room. His seat was near a
window. Now as the plotters watched him they
could see that he was deeply buried in a wild west
novel. Lucky for them, he was the only occupant
of the room. He was unconscious of every one and
everything around him. Eric cautiously opened
the window and Billy appeared beside him. In his
hand he held a newly purchased ice cream bar.
Stealthily Billy moved his hand toward Otto's open
neck collar. The bully was probably just reading
something about cold steel and chills. For as Billy
thrust the cold ice creamhdown his neck he uttered
a shriek which seemed to shake the entire building.
The two lower classmen were satisfied. They were
at least partly revenged though it had cost them
five cents. They could not help laughing at the
funny antics of the husky freshman as he went
into action trying to recover the melting bar.
The incident was one of many which occurred
between the first year Laneites.
Finally the last day of the 1A semester arrived.
Cook, johnson, Harris and Royal Anderson were
among the freshmen who were promoted to ZB.
Sidney Epstein with his ignorant ways was one of
the flunkers of his class.
As the four classmates made their way toward
their respective homes they spoke of the wonderful
vacation period which lay ahead of them. Each
told of the time he was going to have. No talk was
directed toward the fact that school would have to
be resumed the following September. Before the
group disbanded Bill proposed that each of them
correspond with each other from their vacation
spots. Eric and Tommy fell in with the idea en-
thusiastically. Tommy offered to send the first let-
ter. He kept his word. About a week and a half
later Bill received a letter which started the follow-
ing chain of letters which Billy either received or
sent all during the summer:

We are leaving for home tomorrow. The fish

The other day a man went in swimming with his
glasses on. While taking a dive he lost them in the
water. The water was about ten feet deep and so
he started diving for them. After several attempts
he gave up. However, he offered five dollars to
anyone who would retrieve them. This was oppor-
tunity itself, I thought to myself. For about an
hour I tried diving for them but I couldn't find
them either. What to do was the question. That five
spot was so near and yet so far away from me. All
of a sudden I thought of an idea. QI do get them
once in every great while.j The idea was this. There
happened to be an old man living near the camp.
He thought he was an inventor. All over his pro-
perty one could find gadgets and homemade articles
of all kind. Leaving my friend minus his specs
for a minute I looked up the old inventor. I found
him in his workshop. Explaining my purpose I
soon convinced him how he could earn two dollars.
An hour later it was finished. A homemade diving
helmet. Fifteen minutes later I collected the fiver.

Dear Uncle Jack:

your basement which you were not using. Could I
have it please? The time would not drag so if I
could spend some of it making jig saw puzzles.

ing of school. Mother thinks differently. There-
fore if I must, I must. There is hardly anything
to do here so maybe school will not be so bad.

Dear Uncle Jack:
Thanks very much for the jig saw. After clean-
ing and oiling it I flnd that it works swell. So far I
have made three puzzles already. The solving of
these kind of puzzles is beginning to become a re-
gular fad in this town. All the dime stores are sell-
ing them. Thanks to you I might be able to make
a little extra money by making puzzles with the
School begins tomorrow. I'm all set. My friend,
Eric, is at my shoulder trying to make me commit
errors in my writing. If you see any mistakes
you'll know the reason why. Thanks again for the
puzzle and the advice. I think Illl have to stop
here as I have to prepare my things for opening day.

The return to school marked the renewal of ac-
quaintances. In the brief time before the opening
of the rooms, Harris, johnson, and the others dis-
cussed everything from vacations to school activi-
HI see where all of you are glad to be back at the
old grind again, 7' remarked Bill as the group pass-
ed through the Division Street entrance. USome-
how I am rather glad to be back, too."

plied Johnson. 'fI'll bet your dad would give a
pretty penny to hear you say that. Maybe you're
right, though. Ilve sort of missed the old place, too.
How about you, Tommy?l'
t'Ditto. I want to get back to military as soon as
possible. I'm a bit rusty right now. Say, we're
supposed to meet in the wood shop, aren't we?"
"Thats correct-at one olclockf'
t'It's nearly that now. Come onf' So saying,
Harris led the way down to the basement, talking
as he walked.
'AI have my semester all planned. Iim going to
get on the Tech Prep Staff if I can and Ilm trying
out for the track team again and maybe-I'
"You can put me down for the Forumf, interrupt-
ed johnson, balancing himself on the rail imbedded
in the basement floor. HI listened to a lot of the
debates last year and I'm convinced that public
speaking is going to be right down my alleyfl
"As I was going to say when I was so rudely in-
terruptedf, said Billy pretending indignation. HI
might try to get a scholarship pin this year. The
kind that Royal Anderson sports on his jacket."
After a laugh at this, the boys entered the wood-
shop and looked around for their division.
"There's Anderson and there's Otto," Eric point-
"Wc 'want a homer."
The Lane Tech Annual for June, 1935 Page 25
ed out. 'tYep, that must be our division all right."
They hurried over to greet Anderson and were
themselves greeted by a burst of "Hyah's'i from sev-
eral members of their division. Kurt Otto, how-
ever, ignored them completely.
"Hello, Ottoj' said johnson as a peace offering.
Otto answered with a "I-I'lo" and walked away.
"Nice fellow," chided Cook, 'ibut don't let that
bother you. Well have plenty to do filling out our
new programs in the right way. Here come the
Then followed the usual period of almost three
quarters of an hour during which the division was
getting the programs arranged. When it was all
over Harris found that he had the same program as
Cook. Eric's differed only in the seventh and eighth
periods. That part of it was satisfactory but Bill
didn't like his program from another point of view.
"I always seem to have all the luck," he exclaim-
ed. Hl'm gonna have Miss W for math again and
she nearly tlunked me last semester. And here's
Mr. K for drawing. I heard that he is a tough
marker. My English teacher also has a reputation
for toughness. Gosh, what will I do?"
"just work hard like a good little boy,'l Cook
teased. "Remember that you are going to win a
scholarship pin this year. Ha-ha."
t'IJon't worry, Mr. Cleverness, I'll wring out an E
in math and drawing or I'll walk over Niagara
Falls on a tight rope."
t'I'll take you up on that bet," offered johnson.
't'l'hen it's a bet. Still there's one other thing I
forgot to tell you. If and when 1'll have to take
that walk, I'll carry you on my back."
"Thanks, but let me out of it. By the way,
you're not the only unfortunate individual present.

building for a change. Imagine, not one portable.
Well, miracles will happen. Shall we look over our
Actual experience for students
'tWe might as well."
The three friends were joined by Anderson who
had a similar program. Then the foursome set out
on their expedition of exploration.
The next day Harris rushed into his first period
class three minutes late. It happened to be math
and Miss W saw him trying to slip unobserved into
a seat near the door.
"Well, Schylerf' she said, 'fyou're starting to
come late a bit earlier this semester, arenlt you?"
A ripple of laughter passed around the room.
HNo, ma'am," Billy uttered as he inwardly cursed
'lSee that it doesn't happen again." The teacher
dismissed the subject and continued the organiza-
tion of her class.
When the period was over, Harris despairingly
remarked to his buddies, 'tThat little incident didn't
do my cause any good. I'll have to begin to get
back in her good graces all over again."
Sometime later they emerged from the biology
laboratory in high spirits.
"Boy! This is one subject I'm going to like,"
exclaimed johnson. "I wonder why we didn't get it
Page 26 The Lane Tech Annual for June, 1935
Noisier than a Freshmank study
"We had general science instead, ignorant one.
We're sort of graduating into this. That teacher is
a swell fellow, eh what?"
t'Yes, he's all right I guess. But I don't see so
much in the subject. You fellows are getting all
worked up over the prospect of a little laboratory
work," commented Billy.
The next class was foundry.
"Now we're getting into some real shop work.
Most of the work will be with metalf' Billy said smil-
The rest of the tgang' shared his enthusiasm and
listened with interest while the instructor explained
the few elementary facts pertaining to foundry.
After signing their program cards, the teacher left
the shop and the class spent over half an hour in ex-
amining the various tools. Eric Johnson was the
shop genius of the quartet so they asked his opinion
in regard to the use of tools and shop terms.
"'W hat would you say this is, johnsonf' Ander-
son asked, picking up a tapered wooden stick.
ttWhy, that must be the sprue pin. We heard
about it in pattern shop," Eric replied. 'tThat queer
shaped block is most likely the ram rodf'
"just look at that cupola," Billy said as he pointed
toward the melting furnace. 'tThat's what you call it,
isn't it Eric?"
"Yes, I think so. Say, these flasks are quite
heavy? Then Johnson lifted a complete mold that
was standing on a bench. 'fThey ought to be, con-
sidering all the sand that has been packed into it."
Thus the fellows went from bench to bench, exam-
ining each article with a deep interest. When the
instructor returned, he finished his lecture on the im-
portance of the foundry in industry and dismissed
After a period in the study hall the boys went to
lunch. At Billy's request they went to one of the
candy stores which were so numerous around the
school. Here they found Sidney Epstein. Sid called
them over and invited them to be seated. They
accepted though they didn't like the stuffy atmos-
phere which the store presented.
"Well, what sort of luck did you have with your
"Oh, fair enough," Eric replied, opening up his
'tHow about you, Cook?"
Then Billy spoke, 'tSid, you remember Miss W,
donit you? I have her for math again?
'Til say I do. She is the one who ilunked me and
kept me from going to a 2B division. I won't ever
forget her. I know one thing. I'll never get her for
The boys continued eating their lunches in silence
except for a few occassional remarks. When they
were through they went on to their next class.
Weeks passed. Harris was really making an at-
tempt to raise his grades. In math he was spurred on
by the shining presence of Anderson. He and Billy
had joined the track team at the beginning of the
semester while Cook was making an ever earnest
effort to improve his music. johnson had joined the
Forum and was promising his friends that he would
become a second Daniel Webster. He tried to per-
suade Billy to join but Harris dismissed the thought
by saying, "Plain, ordinary, everyday English is good

enough for me without all the fancy stuff that goes
with public speaking. Besides, what reasons are
there for me wanting to join the club?"
"I'll tell you, Billy. A definite gain in attend-
ance plus a favorable student reaction, based on
popularity, are ascribed as a few reasons for you
joining the Forum. The swelling ranks and the en-
thusiastic support of the students has made my par-
ticipation in the deliberation and discussion of in-

"Stopi l've had enough. Did you learn all that

The promise was made and kept, at least for that
one night. The chums were among the tirst in line
for the concert. ln another half hour it began.
t'Say . . . this isn't bad at all. They're playing
some mighty sweet music. You know, l've been
watching a certain violin player on the stage. He
looks just like one of the fellows in our room. See
that small lad in thc third seat on the left?"
"Yep, l see him. Sure, it's the same fellow that
sits in the second seat in division. His name is
Beraui or something like that."
"Now l'm positive. It is Anthony Bertini. We'll
have to look him up tomorrow. Like l've always
said. "Our division room is well represented in
everything. We have a speaker deluxe and a . . . "
"You sure hate yourself, don't you, Eric? My

Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
So it developed that Bertini was congratulated
the next day. Somewhat perplexed himself, he was
soon put at ease by Billy.
"It sure was a swell concert last night, Tony.
How come you never told us you played the violin?"
"Oh, I don't see that it makes any difference.
Thanks anyway for taking an interest in the music
Star Gazing? K
ln this way Bertini joined Billy's "gang" of
schoolmates. He was immensely interested in
music. Whenever he had the chance he would try
to get someone to discuss music.
lncidentally Kurt Otto began to give the boys
trouble again. It might be well to relate an inci-
dent which occurred in the foundry one morning.
johnson was pouring molten metal into one of
the molds. As he was passing Otto with a ladle
full of the molten iron, he tripped on a misplaced
cope and fell. The hot liquid new straight at Otto's
back. Billy had been watching Eric and the in-
stant he saw the danger he sprang into action. He
gave Kurt a push that sent him sprawling while
the hot iron splashed harmlessly on the tloor. Mis-
understanding the motive for Harris's action, Otto
arose glaring at the boy who had saved him from
Page 28 The Lane Tech Annual for June, 1935
"lYhat do you think you're doing?" he growled
menacingly, "l'll show you that you can't push me
around and get away with itfl
"Listen here, Ottofi Bertini cut in, t'Harris, here,
saved your skin. ls that the way to show your
"Saved me from what?"
Bertini pointed to the hot metal on the floor and
explained Bill's action.
Harris merely replied that he was sorry that
Otto had taken the affair so badly. At last Billy
was getting tired of his rivalry with Otto. He wish-
ed that it would end.
With the semester coming to a close, every day
saw the boys advancing in their respective school
activities. Billy managed to get a place on the Tech
Prep staff. johnson learned much of public speak-
ing in his short stay in the Forum. Cook was com-
Hams, but 7105 ilze kind they parked across the sm'c1f.
Otto looked around suspiciously, not knowing
whether to believe Tony or not. He was still glar-
ing at Billy when the instructor, attracted by the
group of boys, came up.
"Here, here, what is the matter? What is all
the fuss about?"
"Nothing, sir," Otto replied, "just a slight acci-
dent. Nobody hurt."
The students went back to their work, and the
incident was apparently forgotten, but Otto began
to imagine that the whole thing was a frame-up.
He was quite wrong there, however, for johnson
and Bertini were profuse in their praise of Billy's
"I certainly owe you a lot of thanks, Bill. You
can imagine how l would have felt if that molten
iron had injured anybody, even Ottofi
"Yes, sir," Bertini added, Uyour quick work saved
the day for Eric."
ing through in military. Bertini kept his place
in the band. Anderson, the scholar, was coasting
through the semester in great style. The regular
school curriculum was also coming along in great
shape. Billy was making good his boast of winning
a scholarship pin. So far he had the required aver-
age. He only had to maintain the same average dur-
ing his ZA semester in order to earn the coveted
The earnestness with which Harris went about
doing his lessons seemed to indicate that he had at
last taken a liking to high school. His participa-
tion in work outside of his regular classes also was
progressing. In track, for instance, he was making
good. His literary career was getting to a point
when he considered joining the Daily staff.
The passing of the semester saw the passing of
all the boys in Harris's 'circle' to ZA. Nobody Hunk-
ed. 'l'o Billy it was a banner year. He had never
The Lane Tech Annual for June, 1935 Page 29
felt so enthusiastic over returning to his studies
and friends after the Christmas vacation.
The ZA semester began with somewhat the same
confusion and uneasiness as before. Billy and all
his friends found themselves in the same division
room. Even at this early stage Eric was becom-
ing more serious since joining the Forum. Not in-
frequently did he correct his friends in their speech.
"Quit your snoopin', Eric," Harris would com-
plain. 'f'l'his isnit the Forum.
The remark was hardly needed for Eric knew
when to have his fun and also when to stop. About
this time, Tommy Cook, the old standby, appeared
with news of the new semester.
"Well, boys, how about starting the new pro-
gram? What do you say to getting acquainted with
the new rooms?"
"New program? Gosh, I clean forgot all about
it. Did you get yours yet, Tommy? "asked Eric.
'tSure, l just received mine. ltys all filled out
already. You better step on it if you are to get
The two boys made their way to the new division
room. There they found Anderson. The three be-
gan to fill out their programs for the morrow. Soon
they were ready to get down to the business of
furthering their education.
On their way home that day Bill asked Eric about
the coming heavyweight basketball game between
Lane and Lakeview.
'That Lakeview team sure is going places this
year. If it wasn't for that fellow Troutwine I don't
think they'd have a chance. He's the whole team
but l think Lane will stop him."
ul hope you are right, Bill. This is the most im-
portant game of the season and the winner of this
game will no doubt be the north section champs."
The old and- -----
The next day was Friday, the day of the big
game. The boys were keyed up to a high point of
interest. But school work came first and they only
wished it would soon be over.
Their first class was German, the new subject
that Bill, Eric and Roy had chosen. Cook decided
to take Spanish because his ambition was to become
an engineer and travel to South America. The would-
be Germans playfully thought that if another war
began they would be on friendly terms with the
enemy. They were also determined to find what the
Lane cheer, 'fDas ist was" meant if it took them
two years to do it.
The new art rooms
Eagerly they went to each classroom to see their
new teachers. The German teacher satisfied Eric's
and Roy's choice. The period passed quickly.
Thus the day progressed and the novelty of the
new program wore off and their only interest was
in the approaching basketball game. As soon as the
last class was over they made a rush toward their
lockers and then ran up to the gym.
"That's some climb of hve floors, I'll say," pant-
ed Eric, "the gym ought to be on the second floor
where a fellow could get to it without getting so
"Hey, Johnson, speaking of wind,-I think you've
said enough. I wonder where Anderson and Cook
"They'll be here soon, Bill. Roy is coming from
the west campus. I think he has his math there."
By this time they were in the gym. Because of the
fact that Billy was to write up his first article for
the Daily the two chums got some good seats. From
somewhere out of the crowd Roy and Tommy ap-
peared. They soon joined Bill in the wild scrambl-
ing for seats. They, together with many other loyal
Lane Indians came out in full force to demand a
victory. The balcony was crowded with freshmen
who were unable to get on the main floor. The Lane
team appeared on the floor in their white and gold
uniforms amid cheers. The varsity squad began
limbering up near the west basket and the second
team practised at the east end.
Page 30 The Lane Tech Annual for June, 1935
tfThey look pretty snappyj' commented Harris.
"This should be a good game. Lakeview ought to
be here any minute now. It's almost game time."
Hardly had he spoken when the Lakeview team
entered the gym. The crowd rose on its feet to get
a look at the opposing team. The lanky center seem-
ed to reach the basket with his six and a half foot
frame. Some thought that Lane could hardly have
a chance with Troutwine in the game.
The whistle blew and the game was begun. Lake
View easily got the tip-off and played the ball fast.
On a quick deceptive play Lakeviewls center got
the ball under the basket and sank it without any
trouble. The first half went on rapidly with Lake-
view in the lead by 17-9. Things looked bad for
Lane, However, Knez of Lane started the third
quarter with a bang by sinking a clean long shot.
Then things began to happen. The crowd in the
balcony was talking it up plenty. They demanded
more baskets. The Lane offense was working beau-
tifully. Lane's flashy forward, Danakas, scored two
more baskets while Knez also chalked up another
one. Lakeview was stopped for the moment and
could not hold onto the ball to complete any success-
ful plays. The end of the third quarter found Lane
in the lead by 20-19.
lt was a matter of only a few minutes and the
game, so everybody thought, was in the bag. But
the Lane defense could not stop the rampage of
the Lakeview squad. The rival team was on a scor-
ing spree and nothing could stop them. With a
minute left to play both teams were tied at 26-26.
The Lane Indians begged for another basket. Swan-
berg, star forward of Lakeview, received the ball on
a short pass and dribbled a bit to get in position
for a shot. It was good. This put Lane behind.
The tip-off and Duros was in the midst of a fast
play which failed to produce anything. In the heat
of the game T routwine fouled Knez who was
allowed two free throws. There was tense expec-
tation in the crowd. All eyes were glued on the bas-
ket and on Knez. Slowly he studied the basket.
Then he let the ball go. It was good. The next
shot would mean a tie or the game. Out of the crowd
came a whoop for victory. More cheers, more noise
and the throw was lost. The game ended. The
final score was 28-27 in favor of Lake View.
Harris made an excellent report of the game for
the Lane Daily. He was congratulated on his fine
write-up by the editor.
t'That was a fine article on the game, Harris.
Keep it up and you will be an editor and a second
"Thanks, but say, Wasnlt that a heartbreaker that
Lane lost and by only one point, toof'
Harris's debut as a reporter on the Daily was
met with envious eyes by his friends. Each of them
complimented him individually.
The day after the game the young reporter re-
ported to his second period class. He was just in
time. The class was reading 'fTale of Two
Cities." Anderson, especially, was interested in the
story. Like a good scholar, he poured over the
contents of the book. He could recite quotations
of Sidney Carton, the erstwhile lawyer in the story.
Tommy sat in his seat in a khaki uniform. He was
called and known as a private in the French Foreign
Legion and except for the white garters he might
have passed for one. To the freshmen he Was known
as a Rotten Old Tin Can, that is, when he did not
catch them in the act of addressing him so. The
English teacher was sometimes led astray of the
story and would begin discussing world topics. The
class, of course, would try to keep this up. Eric,
always the good sport, never passed up the oppor-
tunity to continue the conversation until the bell
Boys will be - - girls Un the Mask and Shearsj
Roll call in the new division was answered with
a 'here' or an occassional 'present, sir'. The dis-
tribution of Dailies followed. Then talk was dir-
ected toward the approaching track meet with
Crane. Anderson was reading a book but put it
down when he heard of the track event. Both he
and Billy were beginning to go places in track.
Berths on the team had been vacated because of
graduation. As the boys began to read the Daily
it suddenly dawned upon them that the article on
basketball was written by Harris, one of their div-
ision room members. The boys were really proud to
know someone on the staff who was making good.
Harris was quite conscious of the feelings of his
friends. Therefore he determined not to lower him-
self in their eyes.
The Lane Tech Annual for June, 1935 Page 31
The next class after division was math. This
subject was probably the most difficult for the maj-
ority of the boys. Once in the room each student
occupied his given seat and awaited the voice of
the instructor. Tommy fell down heavily and wear-
ily into his seat. He loosened his belt and began to
look out of the window. He could see the street
cars rattling along at a snail's pace. While engaged
in this occupation of day-dreaming he kept an eye
and an ear open for the instructions of the teacher.
He dreamily sucked his pencil as he scrawled down
whatever he chanced to hear. His face shone with
a soldier's warfare manners. Studious concentration
seemed to be a painful novelty if his face was to be
relied upon to belie his regular thoughts. Drops of
perspiration dropped from his tousled hair and his
hands moistened the paper on which he wrote. The
windows were wide open which permitted the heat
and insects to come into the room without any sort
Condensation and concentration.
Spring was in the air and it was beginning to tell
on the students. The calm breeze seemed to affect
everyone's feelings. Cook was suddenly aroused
from his reverie by the bell. Then he realized that
the period was not yet over. Having the second
lunch there still was ten minutes of waiting. The
time dragged so when lunch was so near and Tommy
so hungry. Ticking slowly away, the clock on the
wall was stared at continually. By this time Cook
had become unconscious of the teacher's presence
and was only going back to his dreaming.
"Hurry up, Tommy! Don't you want to eat?"
shouted Eric. He poked Tommy to get him moving
or else he might still be dreaming.
Billy then added, "The perfect specimen of the
sleeping beauty, eh, Cook?l'
UAW, quit your ribbing. Can I help it if Ilve got
Lab was never a dull one.
"Okay, Tommy, all is forgiven. Do you know
what? I've thought of a new slogan for lunch."
'Something about a longer lunch period, per-
"You and your feedbag. But here is the slogan,
'tShove thy neighborll, just polite pushing, you
know, so long as a fellow isn't crippled."
'tNice idea, Bill. The fellows around here don't
need an alarm clock to tell them it is time for
The semester progressed with the usual slow-
moving days filled with activities which needed im-
mediate attention. Basketball. . .track. . .baseball
came and went. With each passing day Billy began
to accomplish his purpose. The scholarship seemed
a reality. Three more weeks and it would be his.
Then the unexpected threw a wrench into Harris's
well-planned and long-awaited day of realization.
just about three weeks before the ending of the
school year Harrisls car suffered a break down. He
was obliged to ride the street cars to and from
school. Billy, as always, tried to devise a method
whereby he could save some of the money which
Mrs. Harris supplied him to use as carefare. Bill
let Johnson 'in' on the scheme.
f'Here's my idea, Eric. Why not hitch-hike home.
Many of the students do it. ln that way we can save
a few pennies for a show."
'KI wouldn't try it, Bill. What's the use of risk-
ing your neck for a measly seven cents."
Nevertheless, Harris finally convinced his pal to
accompany him on his first 'hitch'. It was one day
about a quarter to three. After waiting to get a
lift for several minutes Billy nudged his friend.
HHere she comes, johnson. See that red truck?
Watch my smoke. Hurry -up or we'll miss it."
"No, Bill, you better not take that one, it's going
"Come on, fraidy cat."
Saying this, young Harris took hold of the up-
Page 32 gThe Lane Tech Annual for June, 1935
raised tail-gate of the speeding vehicle. Eric was
just about to follow suit when he stopped. The
truck gave a sudden lurch and was off at top speed.
Billy made an effort to keep his balance. It was
too late. The tail-gate fell down with a bang.
Harris fell to the street. There was a crack as Billy
hit the pavement. Johnson ran up and looked into
Billy's face which showed intense pain. As Eric
lifted his pal from the street Billy gave a cry.
"Ouch! My arm! Be careful. Ow. ..I can't
So he couldnt, for it was broken. Harrisls care-
less folly netted him a broken arm. It was not un-
til that evening that Bill realized how serious the
break was. The use of his right arm was gone for
the present. In fact, it was not until a week later
that he was allowed to return to school. During
this period he had plenty of time to think things
gave high school another thought. Scholarship
pin-not a chance to get it now-last quarter marks
counted. He would be lucky if he would be able
to return in time to make up the back work in order
to pass into the 3B class with his buddies. The
amount of work to be done gave Billy a shudder.
It was nearly an impossibility. Yet he must do it.
It is not necessary to state that Harris resolved
right then and there to play safe from that day on.
Recklessness, Billy found, did not pay.
The return to his studies was a burden indeed for
the Laneite. However, with the cooperation of the
teachers and students he began to catch up on his
work. It was a real day of rejoicing when Billy
finally caught up. He was heartily congratulated
by both faculty and fellow classmates for his brave
light to pass with the others. Billy had never done
so much homework in his life as he did during the
last twelve days of that semester. When it was all
How they did pound.
Why hadn't he heeded his friend's advice? Harris
asked himself many times over. A nice pickle he
had gotten himself into. No chance of getting back
to school for a week. A week's school work behind.
When would he ever make it up. Johnson came
over every day to inform him of the lessons they
were doing. It did not do him much good, how
ever, for he could not write. His services to the
Tech Prep, Daily and Track team were lost for
many days. Was it all worth it. Just to save a
few cents? Harris could have kicked himself as he
over Bill came through with flying colors. He did
not receive the pin but he did manage to pass.
When the last piece of work was handed in Har-
ris gave a lecture to his friends about safety.
'fYes, siree, boys, I never appreciated the use of
my arms and legs until now. You can bet your
boots I'll never try hitching on cars from now on.
I've had my lesson. If the car goes on the fritz

everything I knew I was going to enjoy my vaca-
tion. If I had tlunked .... well, we'll forget it."
The last day of school passed quickly for Bill.
He bade good bye to all his chums and promised to
write each of them during the vacation period.
On his way home Harris gave the coming days a
thought. Gee whiz, it sure feels good to get a rest
after those last few weeks. But now that I am free
I don't know what to do with myself. There are
no prospects of leaving the city this year. I can't
go out to scout camp because I haven't the money
needed. Shrugging his shoulders he dismissed the
need very much. As for lodging on the way, we
can park wherever it is comfortable. Can you go?"
"Well, Roy, l'll have to get permission from
mother and dad hrst. But no hitch-hiking for me.
Unless I can sit in a seat and know I am safe. I
don't want to have a repetition of what happened
during the fall."
l'Anything you say, Bill, we'll not accept any lifts
unless we can sit with the driver. Besides, this was
to be a walking and hiking trip. Hiking ..... and
here we are talking of riding. I'll tell you what.
We'll try to walk as much as we can. We'll sort of
set. a record for long hikes around these parts."
.Vczvcr 0 dull moment in Founzlrgv
That evening Bill went to see Anderson. who lived
near by. Since the last semester the two had struck
up a mutual friendship. Billy no longer thought of
Roy as a sissy. When he reached Roy's home he
was greeted heartily.
"Hi, Ilill. You are just the man I want to see.
The other day you told me you had no place to go
this summer. I've thought of a swell idea. Why
can't you and I go on a walking trip to say, Nece-
"Why to Necedah?"
"Relatives, my boy. .-X place to eat and sleep
without paying for it, They have a nice barn full
of hay where we can hit it."
"But how are we to obtain food?"
"I have that all fixed. Dad promised to advance
my allowance for the next few weeks. We w0n't
"I sure would like to try that hike, Roy. So long,
l'll be going. Now, all I have to do is to convince
mother to let me go. I don't think l'lI have such
a hard time of it. I know how to get around her."
Billy's scheme worked. A week later he received
his mothers consent. Then preparation for the long
trip began. Haversacks were packed with all neces-
sary equipment. Durable clothing was bought and
hiking shoes were brought out of their hiding place.
Hurried departure amid cheers and good-byes from
their gang followed. The trip explains itself in the
following lettersz- tSpace does not. permit printing

12 all the way . So far neither of us is suffering from
corns on our feet or otherwise. We are as red as
beets already. Roy looks like he might have drank
liquor all his life. We have not yet received any
lifts from anyone.
Last night we slept in a farmer's field. No, we
have not met any tramps yet. I hope we never do.
The money we took along is still holding out strong.
The meals we have bought so far have hardly cost
anything. We have seen many things that we never
knew existed. On a trip like this you can stop and
admire anything you wish for as long as you wish.
By the time I come back, which will probably be
right at the end of vacation, I shall be well supplied
with English themes for the next four or five years.
Right now I could write volumes on what We have
passed and seen.
Roy says to tell you that he will race you to
Necedah if you will accept the challenge. Pretty
smart of him when he has a two day head start.
You better stay home or I won't have anyone to
write to except Cook, Bertini, and perhaps Epstein
and a few others.
I had my first taste of well water the other day.
What I think of it .... well, I would rather not say.
I might be urged to use profane language. At least,
it did not make me well.
P. S.-Please do not write because we will not be
here tomorrow. I don't know where we stay next.
Your letter would not reach us if you did send it.
Too bad I have to jump into my nice warm .....
concrete embankment to sleep or else I might have
been able to write you more.
Finally work began
Lake Geneva, Wisconsin
July 7, 1933
I read in the paper where Bertini is giving violin
lessons to some amateur by the name of Rubinoff
or something. QI bet you nearly believed it.J
We are still knights of the road. But let me tell
you of the sense of humor that Anderson possesses.
He suggested this morning fwhen we had nothing
else to doj of all things . . . a walk around the
town. Another crack like that and you can call for
the remains of one Royal Anderson.

Officials were present
Tell the gang that we expect to be about half
way to Necedah in a couple of days. The sun is
getting hot-headed out this way. With the sun
shining in the day time and a full moon in the
evening we have all the conveniences of home.
Light day and night. With the many lakes around
here Roy has even chosen his private bath.
We hope to be at the Dells soon. A fellow we
met in our wandering told us of one place he
thought we should see. It's called Cold Water
Canyon. Nature has chiseled out of solid rock a
most unusual sight. The narrow canyon is walled
in on either side by tall cliffs bearing stately pines
while a tiny stream of cold water, clear as crystal,
flows through the narrow gorge strewn with bould-
ers and fallen tree tops. The ledges, dripping with
moisture, keep the moss green and fresh. As you
stand looking up beyond the tall pines, trailing
vines and wild flowers, you are entranced by the
inspiring view and you are sure to remember it
always. CThus did the vacation poster that the
man gave us express its contents. You didn't think
for a minute that I wrote such poetryj.
I fell into a mud hole the other evening. Had a
good dirty bath and wish you were there.
Roy tells me to remind you that there are ex-
actly 61 days till the beginning of school. A friend
of mine . . . Grrr.
But you are,
P. S.-I was going to write you more but my

Please pardon us for not writing any sooner but
we thought we would surprise you. We finally got
here last night. Except for looking like a couple of
bums we came out all right. During the last few days
we received a couple of good lifts.
I thought our stay here would be dull but no sir,
among Anderson's relatives are four girls, one boy, a
father and mother, and two swell shepherd dogs. We
are being treated like kings. Nothing but the best
grub. One of the funny things we found out the first
day was the hospitality which these people possess.
Can you imagine the girls offering to give us their
beds and willing to sleep on the floor? However, we
declined and slept in the barn. It was just as com-
fortable in the hay as in your own bed.
The twelve year old son sure was a clever chap.
Let me tell you of the way he hunts rabbits. He
simply whispers to one of his dogs, 'fFetch a rabbit,
Shep." He doesn't even follow the dog. He just
waits. You could have knocked me cuckoo. In five
minutes the dog appeared. . .with a rabbit in his

a job. We had some time finding enough nails, bent
and any other kind, to finish the job. All wood was
Everyone did his part
made to order. Trees were cut down by hand and
the wood was finished on a gasoline saw. Some of
the wood shop work that we did at school helped us
to figure out the building of the crude garage. One
thing l am sure of. It will be strong enough.
All told, this is the life. With the food they are
feeding us I think I gained about ten pounds. We
have to eat everything which is set on the table. If
we don't, they feel hurt. They refuse to listen to
our pleas that we have had enough.
We intend to stay here for about ten more days.
The other evening we went to one of the larger towns
to see a moving picture. Roy was tit.' He paid for
the four girls, the boy, me, and himself. After the
show he bought some all-day suckers. You should
have seen the girls go for them. tAnd you talk of
the sodas your girl drinksj.
Work was progressing
Dear Eric: August 15, 1933
We are leaving for home tomorrow. The 250 mile
return trip ought to afford us some more interesting
sights. We intended to stay here only till about July
30 but as you see we are leaving later. You would,
too, if you had all the fun we've been having.
The thing which interested me most on this trip
was the girls. I never saw such specimens of health
and vitality. They performed all the chores of a
regular handy man. One morning I tried to show
how smart I was. When asked if I had ever milked
a cow I quickly answered in the affirmative. They
led me to the barn. There was the familiar stool and
milk bucket. Seating myself 1 started to work. After
trying for fifteen minutes my wrists began to tire.
I was ready to give up. One of the girls then showed
me how it was done. With the greatest of ease she
soon had the bucket full. Was my face red Q not from
sunburnj. The farmer's daughters could swing an
axe with the same easy manner. I am sure they
The foundations were laid
Page 36 The Lane Tech Annual for June, 1935 g
Roy is also very sorry to leave. I think he is gett-
ing to like the place a bit more everyday. Maybe
the girls have something to say about that. His
scholarly attitude gets them. He just keeps flinging
big words at them and they keep idolizing him. All
of this leaves little ignorant Billy in the background.
I get some consolation from a calf which has been
named after me. Whenever I feel lonesome I talk
to the calf. I think Anderson, the womanhater, wants
to say something to you.
I don't want you to believe anything which Bill
writes. His fish stories are well known to you by
this time. You needn't worry about him. The calf
he writes you about, is seventeen, blond, and speaks
English. Draw your own conclusions.
New materials every day
August 20, 1933
Due to the financial status of our partnership this
will probably be the last letter you will receive. We
are nearly half way home.
The Know Everything CBillyj decided to get more
than a tan yesterday. He took off his shirt and ex-
posed his arms and back to the blazing rays of the
sun. It must have been about 90. So he has asked
me to pinch hit for him in the matter of communicat-
ing with you and the boys. He can barely move his
arms without suffering. Therefore we bought some
salve to apply to the burns. If he tries anything like
that again I see where we are going to go without
food for a couple of days.
If everything goes along all right I believe we can
arrive in time for the beginning of school. So far
I haven't given it a thought. The only thing Billy
can do to tell you of his presence is to put an X
down for his signature. Being sunburnt, leg weary
and hungry for some home cooked meals we will be
glad when this trip will be over.
Your sole-less friends,
Roy Anderson and CXJ
"It's good to be back, isn't it Bill?" inquired Eric
as he munched an ice cream sandwich.
alt sho' am. It sho' am," replied Bill, at the same
time trying to duck a punch from his friend's fist
who was disgusted at Bill's poor imitation of a pop-
ular radio comedian.
The time was their second week of being Juniors.
They were beginning to feel and appear rather ma-
tured compared to the noisy little freshies who always
seemed to be underfoot at the wrong time. About
this time all talk was directed toward the coming
intramural basketball tournament.
'WVe ought to cop the championship this year for
sure. With the playing material in our division we
can't lose. Can we, Bill?"
"Of course we can't. Especially with me on the
team. This year I am sure we can come through.
What is worrying me, is where will we hang the shield
"I know where I will hang a haymaker in just a
second if you don't stop counting your chickens be-
fore they're hatched. What you should really worry
about, is where are we going to get a center for our
The bell ending the lunch hour broke up the con-
versation for the present. The boys hurried to their
Physics lab. This being one of their new subjecIs
they were unfamiliar with the lessons the teacher
discussed. Instead of listening they began to glance
y The Lane Tech Annual for June, 1935 Page 37
around the room. Suddenly Eric gave a muffled
'Z-Xu angel from heaven! There he is!"
"Quiet. llo you want us both thrown out because
you're acting like a maniac?"
"I don't care. I've found him. At least six foot one
I would say."
"Hey, liric, are you off your nut? Who are you
"IIon't be so ignorant, Bill. l've found a center
for you. See him?"
"l'm sure glad to meet any cousin of BiIl's," said
The girl smiled a rather shy sort of smile and mur-
mured the conventional, "How do you do?"
Wiliski kept on speaking, "Say, Bill, why don't
you take Marie with you to the party which lCric's
sister Ann is giving in honor of our victory today?"
"That's a swell idea, Ed," he said it so earnestly
as to bring a tinge of color to Maries cheeks.
"But wouldn't Ann think l was intruding?" pro-
.Ill eyes were upon the work
Harris looked. Sure enough. The pointed-out
boy was very tall.
"But is he in our division?"
"Sure, he was transferred last week. Right after
this class l'm going to talk to him."
Thus did lidward Wiliski join Harris's troupe of
Imoy friends. Wiliski. it developed, had never played
ball. l'nder lCric's tutorship he soon learned. john-
son was not going to let a 'natural' slip by him. By
the time the tournament got under way Ed played a
better than fair game. Bill and Eric played forward
and guard respectively. About one hundred and
twenty live divisions were represented. Eric's team
defeated team after team until they found themselves
playing for the school championship. After a furious
tight Iiric and his roommates came up on top--the
The victory called for a celebration. In the even-
ing lid called for Bill at his home. He found Harris
talking to an attractive girl in the parlor. Un notic-
ing Wiliski come into the room, Billy rushed to meet
"Hello, lid. I want you to meet my cousin, Marie
Vummings. Marie, this is my friend, lid lViliski."
"Of course not," ejaculated lid, "he would be glad
to have you come."
There followed tive minutes of good-natnred argu-
ment with Wiliski winning out. In the meantime
Billy was getting ready to go. Now he was ready
and the three left. The evening proved a huge suc-
cess. Dancing. plenty of ice cream and cake and
then a movie constituted the fun and victory dinner.
The return to school the next day and the girls
were forgotten. Billy and Eric found Ed in the hall
bursting with enthusiasm.
"Say, fellows, want to go to the radio room?"
"Well, us being non-members of the radio club,
wouldn't anyone object to our coming?"
"No, everyone is welcome at any time."
Then the trek to the radio laboratory on the fourth
floor was begun. On the way up Billy related an in-
cident which occured in the machine shop.
"Did I play a swell trick on my shop teacher to-
"Was ist dass?" They asked in a chorus.
Hlt happened like this. He was giving a demon-
stration on a lathe. He was showing the class how
to finish a candle-stick holder. He said the operation
Page 38 The Lane Tech Annual for June, 1935
would take about five minutes. Well, sir, as soon as
he began, I started to time him. I Figured that it
would lake him at least ten minutes with the interr-
uptions to explain each step as he went along. When
he was finished I stepped forward and said, UA bit
slow there, sir, you took exactly eleven minutes and
twenty four seconds longer than we should. If I ever
saw amazement, anger, and then humor flit across
anybody's face, it was thenfl
"What did he say to you?li queried Ed, f'Did he
call you down for insubordination?'
UNO, that's just it. He looked at me in a sort of
funny way and said, 'Quite right, Harris. Thanks
for bringing it to my attention,' Then he walked a-
"I bet he actually enjoyed it as much as you did,"
Ed stated as he opened the door to the radio room.
Wiliski immediately proceeded to explain the princi-
ples of the transmitter that the club was construct-
ing. Next he showed them a 4 tube short wave re-
ceiver which he was building. As he put the small
receiver into operation the trio could hear the police
calls which the set picked up.
"This might be all right but it hasn't anything on
the Economics club or the Architectural club. They
go on held trips all over the city," Bill criticized.
'lWhat's the matter with the Forum or the Mask
and Shears or the many language clubs here at
Lane?" added johnson.
t'Oh, quit your arguing. After all, a student can't
be a member of every club or organization that is or-
ganized. He wouldn't be able to do his regular
school work if he tried anything like that." Then
Wiliski led the way downstairs again.
As the trio came down to the first floor Eric start-
ed to look at the bulletin board across from the
'tWill you take a look at this. iLost--fountain pen--
lost--Math book--liberal reward' There must be at
least ten notices. It sure makes the board look like
"Not so fast, Eric, here is one you are supposed to
look at. On this side. Nothing here for me. Yes,
wait a minutefTech Prep Staff meeting-2:30.
That's me. Literary. It's a good thing we came
down here. I would never have known there was a
meeting. Find anything that interests you, John-
'fYes, Forum meeting tomorrow." However, I al-
ready know thatfi
HYou would, but just you remember that everyone
is not so equipped with brain cells, empty and other-
wise, like yours."
f'Ha-ha, very funny, Mr. Harris, very funny. The

The Lane Tech Annual for June, 1935 g Page 39
only thing wrong with your attempts at humor is
that all your quips have beards ten foot long."
"Hey, are you guys at it again?l' Wiliski cut in,
'fwhenever you two get together you babble like a
couple of old hens. Going to your locker? I have to
get my gym shoes."
"That's right Ed, we have gym today, haven't
we? Tuesdays and Thursdays and today is Thurs-
day. Let's go Billy?
Home sweet home
Once in the gym, the process of changing shoes
was begun. After that someone would usually sug-
gest chinning on the ladders or running around the
track. The suggestion would be carried out. It
wasn't Eve minutes until the informal exercises
would be interrupted by-Line up! Then the scur-
rying for their appointed places. Another order
followed ..... Count off by fours! Ready? Squads
right! March! One .... two .... three .... four ....
one .... The keeping of time with a stick or bat.
Several minutes of the drilling. The counting off of
basketball teams usually was next. Two, three or
four minute halves according to how many students
were present. The bell ended any further play.
The rush for shoes and then the door was always
expected and fulfilled by the boys. To Billy and
his friends, the gym period passed more quickly
than any other. In fact it passed too quickly.
The SB semester also brought the annual Thanks-
giving collection. As in previous years Lane was do-
ing its share to contribute to the worthy cause.
With the money collected, clothing, shoes and food
was bought for the unfortunate school children,
who, without help, could not attend school regular-
ly. For that year Lane collected over 3700.
It was even before the Thanksgiving vacation
that Billy went to see the Lane football team in
action. He was covering the game for the Daily.
"Pretty soft for you, Bill. Getting to see the
games for nix while I have to pay. Where do you
get all the drag?"
"Always kicking, eh johnson? What is there to
prevent you from joining the staff? Or aren't you
strong enough to hold a pencil?"
UNO, thank you. I'll do my work with voice. I
bet you didn't know I am about to join the glee
club. My friends tell me that I have an exceptional
tenor voice. So the logical thing for me to do is to
capitalize on the idea. In a couple of years Illl go
on the radio and then perhaps opera."
"Or perhaps a singing waiter in a well-established
flophouse? Right now I know of a place that will
pay good money for a young star like you. Fifteen
cents a day plus board and lodging.
'Ll-Iere comes the team. Let's watch the game.
I've been thinking. lf Lane should ever run short
of players she could use her cheerleaders.
The next ten minutes were spent in earnestly
watching every play with very little time for conver-
sation. Play was very rough. Several times the
game had to be halted to revive players who had
been knocked out. Substitutions were quite nu-
merous. The game was half over. Another sub-
stitution for Lane. When Johnson saw the sub
running out he gave a cry.
All enthusiastic boys
'fLook, Bill, our old pal, Otto! I wonder how he
ever made the team? 1 hope he gets plastered?
t'You don't mean that, Eric. After all, hels on
our team and we have to root for them to win."
uWhat's the matter? You getting chicken-heart-
ed? Next thing you know you'll be wearing flowers
in your hair. I thought you hated him."
"Well, I do, but we must take the team into con-
sideration. If he could pull this game out of the
fire for us I'd be satisfied."
"No sooner said than done. There he goes! Boy,
look at him run!"
Johnson was right. At this moment Kurt was
running for a touchdown. Would-be tacklers found
themselves lying on the ground, and another six

Hold the press!
points were scored for Lane.
"Put that in your write-up, Bill. Funny thing,
though, your worst enemy and you're going to write
how good he is. It is to laughfi
All eyes were focused on the inspired home team.
The touchdown put some pep into the players and
rooters alike. The opposition had the ball. They
were going to attempt to pass. A long one. It
looked good. In another second things changed.
Otto had the ball again. He had intercepted. Now
his interference began to form. It worked like a
charm. Down the field or another touchdown.
'KNOW you have to really give him a good story,
Bill. Those runs were sensational. I never would
have guessed that he had it in him, the big brute."
'fYep, I guess I might as well admit he's all right
. . . as a football player. As far as the fans are con-
cerned he's a hero and as such I will have to write
The swell story only seemed to give Kurt a
swelled-head. He walked around with an air of
superiority. Maybe he was justified. He had won
a number of games by his marvelous long runs. He
failed to realize that ten other men were helping
him to get through the opposing line. The season
ended with other incidents other than football hold-
ing the limelight.
Three cheers and a tiger
Harris, johnson, Cook, Wiliski and the others
spent their week-ends at the World's Fair. There
was some talk that it would reopen the next year
but there was nothing definite. Therefore the stu-
dents decided to see as much of the fair as was
possible. Billy and Ed took some pictures while
they were there. Some of them were beauties. One
of Ed's snapshots won the Tech Prep Contest-
Near the end of the semester saw each of Billy's
chums advancing in his particular school activity.
Eric was elected secretary of the Forum and made
good his boast of becoming a member of the Glee
club. Wiliski was vice-president of the Radio club
and an alternate in the Student Council. Cook be-
came a member of the championship rifle team.
Bertini was winning new honors with his violin.
Anderson kept on winning scholarship pins. His
work on the traak team was helpful in winning
more than one event. Even Otto began to take
Play to me, son
part in the extra school organizations. He joined
the Ushers club and the Biology club.
Not to be outdone by any of his friends Billy
was advanced to Associate Editor on the Daily
staff. He was commended for his fine work on the
Tech Prep with prospects of an editorship. He also
was proving himself a dangerous man on the track
squad. As a side line he tried out for the Cheer-
leaders club and made it.
The boys were also doing right by their regular
school work. Only two F's marred the report cards
of the entire group. Thus 1933 proved a banner
year for all. The year brought the World's Fair
in Chicago a wonderful beginning. To Lane Tech
it brought a new chief for the Lane Indians. Mr.
Charles E. Lang succeeded Mr. Grant Beebe to the
principalship. In conclusion the year brought new
promise of the opening of the new Lane. Billy and
all his boy friends were but a few who hoped the
new school would soon admit them. The teachers,
too, were being given student loads which were
above the usual.
Billy and several of his friends were strolling
around the main building waiting for the bell which
would announce the beginning of the new semester.

Wiliski and Anderson had been watching the
argument for several moments enjoying the loud

Billy agreed to the idea and the stroll was con-
tinued. Suddenly Harris was knocked off his bal-
ance by someone running from behind. He re-
sor. It was liric.
"Wise guy, huh? I was just getting ready to sock
you one. I thought you were some freshie pushing

me around trying to get to his room in a hurry.
By the way. do you remember our division num-
"31O, a chemistry lab in the southwest corner of
" Fine, let's go and see what is going on up there."
Saying this, Billy made his way toward the room.
Cook, Anderson and the rest were already there.
Program cards were distributed and filled out. A
short lecture hy the teacher followed.
The nest day Harris kept an appointment with
Anderson and Wiliski by the candy counter. Here
many students bought their favorite candy by the
door which served as a counter. lt was a favorite
meeting place. Members of the R. U. T. C. espec-
ially were in abundance buying their pies and candy.
Bill arrived there before the others. To pass the
time in waiting he bought a bar and began to chew
on it. He had taken but one bite when his arm
was pushed roughly which made him drop the bar
into a pile of sawdust nearby.
"Ottol l might have known it. iYhy don't you
fight of words. When it looked like the two would
come to blows Roy stepped in.
HBreak it up, fellahs, you won't get anywhere
by starting a fight down here. I don't see that light-
ing will get you anywhere, I bet you don't know
what you're scrapping about in the first place. Why
don't you quit picking on Bill, Kurt? If you're so
big and strong why don't you join the track team.
Give you a chance to put the shot and you'd throw
it a few feet. Even Bill could throw it farther."
f'Is that so? You guys think you're pretty smart,
don't you? All right, I'll join and put the shot and
any other thing which has to be puttedf'
This is just what Roy expected. He also knew
that he had a good shot-putter to boot. Once Kurt
was a member he would have to see Billy every day.
The difference between the two could be patched up
easier while they were together. Every day during
track practice Anderson would ask Otto to be his
friend. After a week of steady reminding, Kurt
finally gave in. He was won over to Roy and Billy.
'l'he three Laneites shook hands on the agreement.
The next morning Bertini met Harris in the first
period class. Tony was carrying his violin as usual.
Billy opened the conversation with:
"If it isn't the Lane Rubinoff. And how is the
child protege today?"
"Fit as a fiddle and ready for all and one classes
Page 42 -- The Lane Tech Annual for June, 1935
of the day. But seriously speaking, you know Kurt
Otto, don't you? Well, he sure has changed in the
last few days. Why he didn't bully a fellow for the
last two days. Something has come over himf,
"I think l know what it is. You see, Anderson
gave him some good advice and he accepted. Kurt
and I are now the best of friends. Boy, what a
shot-putter he is."
A couple of weeks later the Lane track team had
a meet with Englewood. Everyone was confident
that Lane would win. Then the unexpected happen-
ed. Otto injured his foot and therefore could not
participate in the meet. The coach ordered him
home. The Lane team went through all the events
and all they could do was to tie the Englewood
team in points. l'he shotput event was next and
the outcome of the meet depended on it. Lane had
no candidate who could throw as far as Otto. She
was about ready to give up. just then Kurt walked
in. He walked with a limp. He slowly made his
way to the coach's side and they began to talk. In
another second he walked out on the held, picked
up the shot and threw it 42 feet and 1 inch. This
throw was enough to give the meet to Lane.
This showing of courage and school spirit made
Billy feel even more friendly toward Otto. Harris
called practice. A new pitcher in the person of Ber-
tini was discovered one day by Eric.
t'Honest, Tony, you've got the makins' of a great
pitcher. With you on the mound we're going to win
the school championshipfl However, johnson was
wrong. The team won five games and then lost to
a senior division. Bertini, at the time, was laid
up with a stiff neck and could not pitch.
The next day was the opening night of the Lane
show entitled 'tjunior Sees It Thru." For once
Billy and his friends were dressed up and took their
best girls to this hilarious comedy. Bill took Ericls
sister Ann and Wiliski took Marie Cummings.
Harris was escorted to his seat by Kurt Otto, who
gave him a "Oh, you cute kidv smile. All of the Lane
shows ended with the actors and audience singing
the school song, "Go, Lane, Gow.
In the morning Bill was about fifteen minutes
late. He was running through the corridor at top
speed to get to his locker. He was hailed by a loud,
t'Hey, youll, He turned to see who was calling
him. He saw that it was Tommy dressed in the
uniform of the R. O. T. C. with the insignia of a

to it that the entry fee was paid for and then he "Okey, Bill. I was only trying to scare you."

"'l'hat's more like it. Here's the dope. I was to
the Lane show last night and I didn't get back till
late. So I overslept slightly this morning. Will
there be anything else, sir?"
t'Nothing else, Bill. You are my pal so I'll look
the other way while you get to your lockerfi
"Yes, sir. Thank you, sir." Billy was off to his
locker after giving Cook a salute.
Harris heard more news of the new Lane when
he went to the gym that day. He met Wiliski and
johnson by the door.
f'Say, Bill, have you heard? We are to have a
gymnastic exhibition in a couple of weeks. The
place is the Roosevelt auditorium and you are one
of those who will participate."
f"l'he proceeds will go to buy bleachers for the
new Lane field," added Ed.
"One at a time, fellahs. What makes you think
I want to be in, or attend any gym exhibition?"
f'Well, my buddy, l'll tell you. Each gym teach-
er has chosen certain classes which he will train in
a certain sport or stunt. Our teacher has picked
our gym group. However, I won't waste my val-
uable time speaking to you. We'll have everything
explained to us during the next periodfl
Eric lined up with the rest according to size.
They were told to stand at ease and then the in-
structor began, "In former years we used to have
field days at Soldier Field. At that time every stu-
dent in school was asked to be a participant. Now
this exhibition is something different. It will be
held for two nights. l have chosen this group be-
cause I think you are the best of my classes. The
work will not be very hard and we will practice
once a week. Then every Thursday we can play
basketball for the whole period with no drilling or
marching at all. Each of you should try to buy at
least one ticket. lf you can't buy it for yourself
buy it for your best girl or some alumni."
As the teacher finished his talk Billy turned to
Ed and whispered, "What do they want to buy
seats for? Weill never get to that building.
"That's where you're mistaken, Bill, last Sun-
dey I went to see how they are progressing. When
I arrived there on my bike I was surprised. T hey're
really working on it. 1 wouldn't doubt if we were
asked to report there in September."
"Aw, it's that way every year. They say it will
open and it doesn't. I'm pretty sure I won't grad-
uate from there. Every semester they promise to
open it but they never keep their promise. Some-
body told me that they began to make plans for
the building about fifteen years ago. It might take
another fifteen for them to decide to open it."
No matter how Billy felt, the gymnastic exhibi-
tion was a huge success. Nearly eight hundred boys
took part in it, including all of Billy's acquaintances
except Bertini who had to play in the orchestra
and Otto who was ushering.
While the excitement over the gym demonstra-
tion subsided Tommy Cook was busy with the Ritie
team in annexing another championship for Lane.
Go, Lancites, go
They won the handsome Hearst Trophy by beating
the best that opposing schools could bolster for the
stiff match. Each member of the team was also
awarded an individual medal for his achievement.
Bertini, another of Billy's friends, also went
places with the Lane orchestra by winning the city
championship in the music department.
Ed Wiliski was a big factor in helping the school
nine enter the Quarter Final round of the baseball
Royal Anderson sent in his name as one of those
eligible for the Lane chapter of the National Honor
Society. The day for the faculty to choose the can-
didates tinally arrived. Royal with the other candi-
dates was marched in front of all the teachers who
were seated and who put down their vote as the
name of the student was called. It took a few days
for the votes to be counted. These were days of
tense waiting for Anderson who wanted to know as
soon as possible whether he was elected or rejected.
A day later Rqfal looked at the bulletin board and
then let out a whoop. He had been accepted. Now

he was among the few honor students in the school
who made the grade.
t'Nice going, Roy," Eric kidded. Then he went
into one of his well-known orationsf' Yep, some of

"See, Roy," said Billy, 'twhat johnson has just
said is the way we all feel toward you making good.
Though he may be all wet about the initiation. We
also want you to notice that Patrick Henry deliv-
ery. Did you ever see anything like it?'l
Roy swallowed hard and was only able to say,
"Thanks a lot fellows," and his face showed a broad
smile. A few weeks later he attended the banquet
given by the organization which he enjoyed tremend-
ously. The next day he received his certificate and
card which made him a full-fledged member.
An even more important and crucial project was
soon to be undertaken by Billy and every Lane ln-
dian. One day towards the end of the semester Eric
brought the bad news.
"Have you heard the latest, fellows? Here it is.
Someone has suggested that the New Lane building
be changed in name to the Edison school. I was just
around the office and boy, are they running around
trying to get things straightened outf'
UBut the new building was originally supposed
to be called the Albert G. Lane high school? Why
the change, Eric?"
t'Search me. l only found out that there are some
big doings downtown. We'll probably hear more a-
bout it in division tomorrow."
There was plenty to hear the next day. Every-
thing that Eric had said was true. However, the
move did not go on without plenty of resistance. A
series of pep meetings were called to acquaint every
student with the details of the proposed change.
Petitions were immediately printed and distributed
to the student body. It was after the petitions were
returned with the signatures of parents and hundreds
of alumni, that Billy again saw the power and inter-
est of the former students of Lane. They had come
to the aid of their alma mater. The large number of
petitions were sent downtown and they had their ef-
fect. The name of the new school remained Lane.
A couple of weeks later Billy with the others had
his final exams. After that all talk was directed to-
ward the approaching vacation. They also spoke on
what each was expecting on his report card. The
division teacher began to distribute the cards. He
called Anderson and gave Roy his card congratulat-
ing him on his fine showing. Bertini received his
card and when he saw that he had passed in every-
thing he gave a vocal outburst. Harris got his, look-

and Cook were called upon to get their cards. Each
of them also put on broad smiles because all had
passed and were now high and mighty seniors.
In a last word to his division the teacher told
them that there was a possibility that they might

have to report to the New Lane the following Sep-
tember. Wiliski winked at Billy and nodded an
"I told you so" as he led the way out of the old
building for the last time.
At last june 14th arrived. With it came the
summer vacation. The question on everyones lips
was what he was going to do to occupy his time.
'l'om. Bill, lirie and Royal were sitting on -lohnson's
front steps discussing that important question. Iiric
was just talking about his standing.
"I have no idea whatsoever on what I plan to do
during the next three months. What are you figur-
ing on doing, Bill?"
"'l'ommy and I are going to sign up for C. M. 'I'.
t'. 'l'he training will be for one month. l bet that
you are going to study voice this summer. Right?"
"l.ay off a guy. Can't you? Here I am in a pre-
dicament and you are indulging in jocular repose.
"I take that all back, johnson. You don't have
lo study voice. I bet you were born with a diction-
ary in your hand. But let's get back to the subject.
llave you anything in mind, Roy?"
"l'm all set. I guess I'll go on a long eastern
automobile tour with my folks. I've always want-
ed to see some historic points of our country."
"You're pretty lucky. Hey, Iiric. I've been think-
ing. Would you care to go with tts to training
"Give me some time and l'll think it over. How
about Wiliski and Bertini?"
"lid says he is going to play baseball all summer
and 'l'ony is taking a summer music course which
will be financed by his wealthy aunt."
.X moment later t'ook winked at Anderson and
then addressed Billy, "Well, Bill, l've got you where
I want you. Here is where I get even. Have you
ever heard of kitchen police? 'l'hat is where you
will be stationed most of the time at the camp. I
just know that you will enjoy getting out of bed at
5:45 every morning to peel spudsf'
"So. Cook, that is why you begged me to go. If
you think you are going to take advantage of my
being a rookie you're all wet. l'll send the blanks
back saying I have a job and cannot go. Naturally
you'd be a red or white or some other big shot and
you could bully me around. Nothing doing. I re-
fuse to go through with it. It's a good thing I know
how you feel about taking me along."
By this time Royal could not keep from laughing.
"You believe everything you hear, don't you? I
thought you could take a joke but I guess not
Bill became very red in the face and meekly spoke
up saying, "I knew it all the time. l know Tommy
well enough not to believe what he just said. When-
ever you're ready, Cook l'll go with you. See if you
can go, too. Will you, Eric?"
"Right. I'll let you know for sure tomorrow."
Two weeks later the trio set out for Fort Sheri-
dan. Eric had decided to accompany 'l'om and Bill.
Each of them had a single piece of luggage. The
train soon brought them to their destination.
"Fort Sheridan, here I come," Eric shouted as
the train pulled up to the station. "Say, Tom, you
will have to help us out for the first couple of days.
We know nothing about the army or its ways so
you'd better stick by us."
"Sure, fellows, don't worry. We'll all try to get
Page 46 gThe Lane Tech Annual for June, 1935-T
in one rifle company and I'll help you out as much
as I can. Besides, Bill's training at the Boy Scout
camp ought to help him a lot. As for K. P., I don't
think you'll get it more than three times." As Tom
said this he glanced at Harris, who remembered the
previous mention of the camp chore.

"You,re real cheerful about the K. P. aren't you
Cook? But I donlt care. So long as I get away from
the noise and racket of the city Iim satisfied. This
kind of life will be a different experience for me.
Then Eric broke up the chatting by whistling,
"Theres Something About A Soldier."
"Getting into the right frame of mind from the
start, eh johnson? In about a week youill be sing-
ing, 'fHome Sweet Home."
In the next few hours there was little time for
anything but following orders. The Laneites were
assigned to a company and then were given their
physical examination. After leaving the dispensary
they went back to their company street, awaited
further orders, and received uniforms, bunks and
tent assignments. Mess call was sounded and they
were treated to their first meal at camp.
The following day was spent in getting organized.
Rifles were issued and the drill begun. The military
exercises lasted all morning. Baseball and swim-
ming occupied most of the afternoon.
A few days later Cook asked Harris what he
thought of army life.
The "open road"
f'I'm pretty tired and I donit know much about
it yet, but I still like it. Of course the uniforms
aren't anything to brag about and the food is fairf'
"The food might be fair but it is nourishing.
Why, you have gained eight pounds already. Is
there anything you like concerning the army?"
The Zunchroom gang
f'Yes, nothing pleases me more than the quiet
evenings in my bunk. Now if it wasn't for that
drilling every morning I might be able to enjoy my

t'Cut it out, boys, I'll change my ways. Here-
after Illl be a good soldier."
A week more of drilling and Bill began to show
signs of military knowledge. He could do the man-
uel of arms without dropping his piece. In march-
ing he kept in step with the rest.
The boys had become acquainted with other boys
of their age. Some were from Chicago and others
came from Wisconsin and downstate. It was after
a game of baseball that Billy acknowledged his ap-
preciation to Cook.
"You sure do meet a lot of swell fellows up here,
Tommy, now I see why we need a large army and
more trained men. Itis no snap learning to be a
"You're right, Bill, I wish that more young men
of our day knew that."
Thus the month slowly began to slip by. In the
meantime the crowd back in the city are discussing
an important subject. Otto, Bertini and Wiliski
are at Tony's home listening to him practice the
"Merry Widow Waltz" on his violin.
'LSO you're going to compete in one of the amateur
shows downtown, is that right, Tony? Do you
think you'll get anywhere by doing that?"
'fl may. This may be an opportunity that will
lead to a tryout with one of the many orchestras in
the loop. I don't want to pass it up if I can help
'KGood for you,l' Wiliski added,"I wish I had
some plans for the future like you have. Iill have
to begin to make up my mind soon."

"Oh, by the way, fellahs, before I forget,' Otto
interrupted, "Yesterday I received a letter from
Anderson. He says he is having a wonderful time.
He's been to Washington and has seen the Capitol,
Washingtorfs Monument, Mount Vernon, Lincoln's
Memorial as well as many other historic points of
interest. He further writes that he will visit the C.
M. T. C. camp before he heads for home. That will
be about the 25th of July when they have their
review and parade."
"Before you go on, Kurt, I was about to suggest
that we take a ride out to Fort Sheridan ourselves.
HA good idea, Tony, I believe I can get my uncle's
car for that day. We can all chip in to buy the gas.
How about it Otto?"
UI agree with both of you fellows. It's okay with
me. Anytime you're ready just say the word. I
want to get a look at those tin soldiersf'
The twenty hfth meant a day of visiting, awarding
of medals and sports events for the men at Fort
Sheridan. Bill and Tommy had no idea that they
would have visitors from the city. They were even
more surprised when Roy came to be a part of the
As might have been expected each of the visiting
boys saw the whole affair from his point of view.
Ed enjoyed the varied sports. He believed that the
sport training was an important factor in the life of
a soldier. Anthony was brought to rapt attention
by the martial music of the cadet band. Royal,
however, studied each drill movement carefully so
that he might learn why they were necessary. Otto
who was not particularly interested in any one field
obtained a general fund of information by observ-
ing everything to be seen. An enjoyable evening
was spent by all in having a confab about the
events of the summer.
The next Tuesday Tom and Bill returned to Chi-
cago. The month of August was too warm and
drowsy for the boys to do much although they
managed to see more of the World's Fair before it
closed. The visits to the fair were numerous. Each
of the boys became more educated in his own par-
ticular subject. All told, this vacation was the best
of all the school summer vacations that any of them
ever had. It was a good old summer time with no

Johnson was all excited. His face clearly showed
that he wanted to disclose something important to
his fellow Laneite. Fifteen minutes later the still
sleepy Harris gave Eric a stern look and questioned
the early arrival, at the same time noticing that
Eric was taking something out of his pocket.
"Did you get yours yet, Bill? Hot dog, at last!

and their parents and friends as well as teachers
were realized. The school was the largest of its
kind in the world. lt was a gala day for the stu-
dents of Lane Tech when they assembled at the
park. Bill and his group went to the 4B section
where he met other members of his division. They
patiently awaited the orders which came by way
of the loud speaker system. Two hours later the
parade began. R. O. T. C. color guards from all
the high schools in the city lead the Lane student
body in the marching. Traffic was blocked for
many blocks as the marchers advanced toward the
iVestern Avenue school project. Passing in review
in front of city officials after the two and a half
mile march, the students and various bands next
assembled on the school athletic field. Dedicatory
speeches by Mayor Kelly, President James B.
Mcfahey and Supt. William J. Bogan of the Board
of Education, and President Walter Dill Scott of
Northwestern University featured the program on
the athletic field. Billy and his chums were next
treated to a flag raising exercise by the various
R. O. T. C. units. Thus Harris witnessed the open-
ing of and his first glimpse of the new building. He
lost no time in letting his feelings be known to his
l 2 1 -1
Preparing for the Lane show
"Gosh, what a day, and what a school! Say, Ed,
you turned out to be a pretty good prophet at that.
Remember when you told me that this new school
would open this September? Isn't this an enor-
mous building and look at the large grounds."
"l'll say, Bill, and wait until we get into the
place. I always thought the old Lane was large.
l'his building is loo big I think. I read in the
paper the other day that more than sixty subjects
will be taught here. No wonder they need all this
room. Shall we go on a tour of inspection?"
The rest of the boys agreed and so they began
to investigate. Several times they had lost their
sense of direction and had to get their bearings
before going on. Before the entire school was gone
over thoroughly they were plenty tired. Appar-
ently they did not know that the walk up and down
stairs and long corridors covered a few miles. They
were surprised at the facilities which were found
in the school. The modernistic atmosphere afford-
ed a good comparison to that of the old Lane. To
most of the students the new Lane was more than
a school. It was a high school "heaven", As Billy
said, "It's the tops".
Fire drills were orderly
The gayety of opening day soon wore off. The
business at hand was to keep on giving the stu-
dents an education. Classes and division rooms
were assigned at once. The new organization of
division rooms left only Harris and johnson in the
same division. The others were scattered accord-
ing to where their names came in the alphabet.
However, all had the same lunch hour. Eric devis-
ed a scheme whereby they all had the same table in
the cafeteria. johnson and Billy came down first
and saved seats for the rest. Therefore the friend-
ships were not broken by the change of divisions.
The usual procedure of filling out program cards
was again repeated. Harris had even more trouble
in locating his various rooms than he had at the old
Two weeks later Bill and Eric were signed up for
gym. They were also among the first who joined
the swimming classes.
The natatorium was one of the finest in the city.
The swimming meets held there were enjoyed im-
mensely by both Eric and Billy. Every day spent
in the school meant some newly discovered fact or
facility about it.
f'Take these telephones which are installed in
every room," said Billy one day to Wiliski. "Can
you just imagine how convenient they are for the
faculty. Whenever they want to check up on an
absentee or any other case they simply dial their
Page 50 The Lane Tech Annual for June, 1935 g
number and discuss the subject at leisure. No run-
ning around at allfl
"You are dead right, Bill. Did you know that
we are also to have an amplifying system through-
out the school? There will be a loud speaker in
every room. I like the gyms the best of all. All
four of them are beauties. Each with lockers and
showers. Did you notice the bleachers out on the
field? Ilm sure glad that the gym exhibition went
over as a success."
Now that the students were seniors they were
eligible for more clubs and organizations than ever
before. They jumped at the opportunity of being
members. The Chem, Dance, and Civics clubs were
among the few clubs joined by different members
of the "Lunchroom Gangn.
So the days at the new Lane progressed. Harris
was beginnig to participate in as many things as
he possibly could. At the moment the intramural
sports held his attention. He urged the rest of his

friends to do likewise.
"That's a fact, fellows. Have you ever stopped
to think 'how big a factor the intramural events
are in the function of the school? Let me just run
off a few for you on my fingers. There is baseball,
basketball, forward passing, drop-kicking, punting,
freethrow, tennis, swimming and volleyball. I tell
you. The coaches sponsoring these events deserve a
lot of credit. Besides, the student doesn't lose any-
thing by trying out his skill at various sports. In
every contest medals are offered to those coming out
on top. The contests are to discover new talent
for all sports. Last of all it develops the participant
physically. Whatls so funny, Eric? Don't you
agree with my conclusions on this subject?'l
"Sure I do. I was only thinking what a fine can-
didate you would make for the Forum. Using such
words as participant. Gee, you're getting good."

Wiliski was the next to speak to Billy, who began
to take notes down.
"Look here, Billy," he said, smiling, "why give all
the publicity to Kurt. I have something which is
really hot stuff. Did you know that they are going
to cut six sports off the school calendar? Baseball
is among the first to be stopped. You remember
the championship soccer team of last year? That
is another one which is going. Golf, tennis, wrestl-
ing and skating are the others."
f'How come, Ed? Some of those sports are a-
mong the best in the school?
t'Financial difficulties. Not enough support by
the student body. Is that enough news for one day,
Billy. Or do you want something else?"
ffl'lenty. I'll have to get down to writing some

sports. Baseball? Did you say? Tough on you,
Ed. That means no playing this summer. I can't

at Lane they still cannot support their team. But
drawing. I'll bet any amount the tardy bell rings
before we get there, like it always does. Did you
ink your connecting rod plate yet, Eric? I think I'll
trace that one. After this semester no more drawing
and will I be glad. No more staying up nights try-
ing to get your plates in on time. Yep, there goes
that bell. What will the excuse be this time?
Couldn't open your locker."
Billy's chums took his speech on intramural ac-
tivities to heart. Each of them took part in at least
one contest. Otto and Bertini were fortunate enough
to win a medal apiece.
About this time Harris had his first run-in with
another new organization of the school. Namely,
the hall guards. The senior was just coming into
the building when he was stopped. "Where is your
pass, Buddy? You can't come in until the bell
rings." Billy glanced at the pint-sized lad who was
talking to him.
"I have to get to my locker. I don't want to
carry my books around all morning." Failing in
his attempt to persuade the boy to let him pass,
Billy tried other means. 'Tome on, bud, just this
once. l'll give you fellows a good write-up in the
Daily." But to no avail. The hall guard displayed
his Marshal badge all the more and took a greater
stand against admitting anyone without the proper
pass. In this way was Harris introduced to the
efficient hall guard corps of the new Lane. A boy
was stationed at every entrance and one at every

out the first Daily here at the New Lane. I will
also help put out the first Tech Prep. Hey, begin-
ing of the hfth period. We better speed it up to

Harris did not feel justified until he secured one
of the passes and showed it at every opportune time
to the small boy at entrance O.

K. P. duty was well known to them
Gymnasium work, too, was something new and
different than it had ever been before. When Harris
first heard about all gym classes having to buy gym
suits he didn't approve of the idea at all. But as
the days went by he saw the advantage of the uni-
forms. The classes looked more business-like when
all wore suits. It was also healthier, Billy surmised.
Billy's scholar friend, Anderson, was becoming
athletically inclined as the days came on. Roy
was beginning to star on the cross country team. He
finally won his letter which he proudly displayed
to his envious buddies. As might have been expect-
ed, Lane was becoming more and more champion-
ship-minded when she had all the facilities at her
command. Practice on their own lield had improv-
ed the cross country team tremendously. So it was
with the rest of the teams. With practice grounds
right in their own back yard or in the building they
put on a better show than in previous years.
While engaged in the extra activities the seniors
were not forgetting their required school work. Roy,
as was his wont, was leading the rest scholastically.
With the years Harris's marks were improving. He
was getting more serious about things with every
day that passed. He was no longer the sullen,
moody 'Wise Guy' that he had been at first. Harris
was on the way to appreciate his education and his
Again the Christmas vacation interrupted the
operation of the school. Billy spent most of the
time at Stagg field house watching the annual
U. of C. tournament. At the same time he covered
the games for the Lane Tech Daily. It happened
that he had to cover plenty. The Lane basketball
team overcame all rivals. The quintet came out of the
tournament the winner of the meet for the second
successive time in two years. Billy's detailed story
of the games was printed in the Daily right after

ICverything's been working out right for me. I've
made plenty of friends...I'm getting along with
all my teachers. . .Track and literary work has been
a wonderful hobby in my spare time. . All the rest
of the extra activities have made my stay at Lane
one I will never forget. Something inside makes
me feel as if I want to go on and on. It keeps on
pushing me forward. Ilon't you feel the same way,
"Yes. Ilill, this is once where I have to agree with
yon. I feel sort of funny too. liver since I came
here I had an inkling of that outside force but now
I know of its existance more than ever. 'I'he way
we've been going along half-heartedly at times and
then all of a sudden something grips you and makes
you go at it with renewed confidence in yourself.
Many times I iust don't want to go through a cer-
tain experiment or theme. 'I'hen it comes upon me.
'l'hat urge to tryg to do my best: to plunge ahead:
I wish I knew what it is. Now that you mention it,

ber when we wet'e freshmen? What we didn't do to
get out of classes, Iiut that's all past. Wie have
to look ahead into the future. llo what you will
but I'm starting right now!"
'I'hus the two seniors were left to their thoughts
in the final week of the -Ili semester, 'I'he thoughts
were mostly of the start of their last and tinal sent-
ester which would begin in a few days. The last
milestone of their secondary school education.
After that, only time could tell.
"Here we are, boy, all out. Hurry up or we'll
be late and that isn't the way to start a new semes-
ter especially the 4A and tlnal semester for us."
"All right, Bill, but shall we put our things in the
lockers or shall we carry thetn around? We won't
stay long today. We get our programs assigned and
then we leave."
'I'hey finally agreed to put their clothes in the
locker and then went to the room which was assign-
ed to them at the end of the previous semester. .X
bell announced the opening of school and the teach-
er addressed his division group.
"Boys, you have probably wondered about the
programs on the board, which call for nine periods
each day instead of the usual eight. 'I'he reason for
this is that we are trying out a new system to relieve
the crowded condition of the lunchroom for your
last setnester. We are placing the lunch period and
the division period together to make one period.
'I'hus the nine period programs are the same as the
eight used to be except for a two-minute later dismis-
sal. However you will get four minutes in between
each period to go to your next classroom."
.X sigh of relief went around the room, for none
of the boys wanted to stay an extra period in the
building no matter how attractive the school might
'l'he instructor divided them into four groups
and said, "Your programs are on the board under
the number of your group. t'opy two cards, one to

'tIt's your own funeral. But to continue with our
mixed-up programs. We both have lunch and divi-
sion together the fifth period. We both study lang-
uage and are in chem together. Well, I leave you
here. So long, see you higher up."
The Tech Prep stajf at work
Eric finished copying his program and waited for
Billy to finish with his. Then they left the room
and wandered around the building aimlessly in
search of some of their friends. While doing so,
they were comparing their programs.
'tAre we in many classes together, Bill?" asked
"Here, take my card and look it over. I'm sup-
posed to guess whether I leave you or not. I hope
that we aren't going to be separated too greatly.
Why did they have to break up so many friendships
by this new system?l'
'AI wouldn't know. Moreover, we cannot do any-
thing about it. Let's see now. You have U. S. His-
tory the first and I have English. You have Civics
and I have History the second. The third I have
Economics and you have English. The fourth I
have Civics and you have Trigonometry. You're a
glutton for punishment to take trig, why don't you

Billy's first class the following morning was Hist-
ory. As he sat down he heard his name called.
f'Hello, Bill." Looking around Harris saw Royal
enter the room. Immediately the two went into an
earnest conversation concerning classes.
"Hello, Roy, are you in this History class, too?
See anybody you know?7'
"Yes, I had my choice of the first or the ninth
and I chose this one. By the way, what do you
think of the new system of arranging periods?"
t'It's all right for the pupils who have their lunch
periods at a convenient time, but how about the un-
fortunate fellow who has his lunch and division, at
say, the third period. He eats about an hour after

tough luck for himf'
At this moment the teacher started the work of
assignment and conversation was stopped. Bill's
second period was Civics. Here he met his musician
friend, Bertini and Kurt Otto, the football star.
In the third class he was among strangers. How-
ever, Cook was in the same trig class which made
Harris glad to see a familiar face. For the first ten
minutes the seniors had their division. Then the bus-
4 The Lane Tech Annual for June, 1935 Page 50
iness of acquainting them with the news and plans
for the day was discussed and the role was taken.
The remaining thirty minutes were for the lunch
period. Bill and liric hurried to the cafeteria, pur-
chased their lunch and sat down at a table together.
Anderson and Bertini soon came along and joined
them. Presently Cook also sat at their table. Con-
versation was mostly directed toward the classes
each had been given. By the time they had finished
their lunch they discovered that all had the same
Chemistry class the eighth and ninth periods.
'l'wo periods later they all met in the Chemistry
lab. There they not only found the three who were
with them at lunch, but also Wiliski and Otto.
"Hot dog!" liric exclaimed, "this is like a family
reunion to be all together again in the same class
after all these years. Wiliski, what are you beam-
"l'm sure glad that you are here. For now if l

this moment the bell rang and the boys left for
The work of correcting class quotas until each
class was nearly equal went on for several weeks.
Fortunately none of Billy's friends had more than
minor changes made in their programs. Then in
division one day they were told of the latest scheme
of the authorities for handling the seniors more
easily. This plan was to have the seniors meeting
for division in the assembly hall instead of in sep-
arate rooms as the rest of the school did. Hurrying
to lunch, Bill and liric heard their chums eagerly
discussing this latest news of the moment.
"How are they going to take roll call?" 'l'ony

to accomplish anything in that large hall?" lViliski

"That will be enough from you, Cook .... coo.
Why are you fellows worrying about these things
when they have all been worked out by people with
brains? So donlt sprain those vacuums which you
carry between your ears? At this point, Tony chok-
ed over his sandwich and as he was recovering his
breath, he glared at Eric which showed more clearly
than words what his opinion was.
In Chemistry that day, the instructor assigned
the boys to benches and as it turned out, Bill and
Royal were partners, Eric and Tom were paired,
Wiliski and Otto were together and Bertini was
paired with a newcomer. The experiment was
started almost immediately. Everything went along
all right until Bertini, with his mind dwelling on a
difficult piece of Mozart's instead of his Chemistry,
spilled a test tube containing potassium iodide on
Eric's notebook. Good naturedly, Eric told him to
forget it as it would surely wear off and his papers
would not be hurt any. The next day in Chemistry
Eric came charging down on Tony with eyes blaz-
ing. 'fLook what you have done,'l he cried, and
with this remark he took a piece of the iodide-sat-
urated paper in his hand and it literally fell to
pieces at his touch. His classmates roared with
glee and first class amusement.
'fBetter put your paper under glass like they do
at the museumf' volunteered Billy, wickedly.
"Did it wear off like you said it would?l'
The others joined Bill in the 'riding' of his chum.
'fWatch out!" cried Wiliski, "the wind will blow
a hole in your English theme. Your precious and be-
loved English theme, my, oh, my." This was add-
ing insult to injury and Eric took after Ed and was
only stopped when the instructor entered the room.
A few minutes later Johnson announced that he
could take it and told the rest of the fellows to let
it pass as a joke on him.
The next day Harris and johnson received a sur-
prise. While at lunch, they noticed that Tommy
was seated at the table next to them. On his uni-
form was the insignia of a Lieutenant Colonel. He
saw the two but kept on conversing with the stu-
dents at his table. He made no effort to recognize
the presence of either.
"For crying out loud,', exclaimed Eric, "look at
the General, wonder if he still knows a couple of
'Nobodysl like us?', Still Cook would not yield.
He returned his friend's banter by refusing to look
their way. Then Eric started.
"I wonder what kind of polish he uses on his
medals? The brass ones I mean."
"It's rather cold out today isn't it?" replied Cook.
"Y ou ought to try nitric acid, it's just wonderful
for brass. Cheap, toof'
"The sun is pretty bright, though, and this is
keeping it warmerfl continued Tom. This was too
much, and everybody, including Tom, burst into
'fHow does it feel to be one of the highest comm-
anding oflicers of the R. O. T. C.?"
f'My friends, a certain breakfast cereal is the se-
cret of my success,', quoted Tom dramatically, "nuts
'fl suppose you ate them twice a day for four
years," said Billy sarcastically.
"Oh, no, I feed them to all of my opponents.
There goes the bell...Sixth periodf'
"Bill, how is that editorial that you are writing
coming out?" asked Royal as the boys lounged a-
round in the Chemistry lab after cleaning up.
"Well, so so, but Iill get it yet and then you
fellows can have my autograph if you ask hard
enough and if you buy a Tech Prep where I can
write it in."
"Look out, you are going to make your right
hand longer than the left by patting yourself on
the back like that," Eric cut in, "I'm willing to
bet you a candy bar that you don't even get it pub-
'Tll take that little bet. Taking candy from a
baby, I'd say."
'fSeriously speaking, fellows," said Bertini, Uwe
are sure grabbing all the best offices around this
school. Royal is vice-president of the Honor Society.
Tom is one of the two highest officers of the R. O.
T. C. Eric has been appointed Dance Committee
chairman, and Bill, besides being associate editor of
the Tech Prep and an Editor on the Daily, is Sec-
retary of the Civics Club and on the Picture Com-
mittee. Not bad, in fact, not bad at all."
f'You,re not doing so bad yourself, Tony. I hear
that you will probably go to the National Orchestra
contest in May at Madison, Wisconsin. Taking
first place in that solo contest just held is another
honor to be proud of."
The days passed swiftly but still another incident
occupied the minds of the seniors before they were
to graduate. This was the sale of baseball booster
buttons to everybody in the school including teach-
ers, office help, janitors and students. Only through
the sale of some ten thousand buttons could the
baseball team be able to participate in games with
other schools in the city. Again the real Lane In-
dian spirit of the loyal Laneites was brought forth.
One, two and three buttons were bought by the stu-
dent body as well as alumni who came to the help
of their alma mater. Finally enough buttons were
sold to insure the return of baseball and the rest
of the dropped sports to their former standing.
The second third had passed at last and the exam-
inations were again upon the students. Bill and Eric
were somewhat worried about the outcome of the
" Gee, Harris," said Eric, as they rode home one
day, 'Tm going to have to spend this evening cram-
The Lane Tech Annual for June, 1935 Page 59
ing in History for that test tomorrow. l've been
scribbling designs for the Prom bids instead of
studying about the t'ivil War. Hoy, this job of be-
ing dance committee chairman isn't all that it's
cracked up to be. Sometimes I think that Royal was
rather clever when he refused a committee job. lt
sure takes a lot of time off a fellow's regular classes."
"Yes, Iflric, but I would not trade the business
training that I have had in handling large groups
with the picture committee for anything in the
world. Speaking of History. l'll come over to bone
with yoll. I haven't been doing so good in fighting
the battles of the Civil War either."
The exams came and went. The boys met in the
Vlieniistry class the day that they received their
report cards. All were surprised to see that their
marks were much higher than they had expected.
Nevertheless, all the marks were well earned. liach
senior had worked hard to bring his mark as high
as he could for the second third for it was this mark
which determined whether their pictures would ap-
pear in the school annual.
A week passed and then one day Hill came tear-
ing into the cafeteria with the latest Tech Prep in
his hand "So, . .my good friend," he said to Iiric,
"I wouldn't get my editorial published. See, here
it is, Page nine. You owe me exactly one candy bar.
t'ome to think of it I could go for one right away."
Anderson was the next to look at the article.
"Nice going," added Bertini, slapping Bill on the
"l'ure luck," Eric went on to say, "they only used
it as a space tiller."
"Now there is the kind of thing which ruins the
spirit of up and coming young geniuses like me,"
"I was going to say something," said Cook, 'tbut
to save your father the expense of buying a larger
hat for you l don't think I will."
"Sticks and stones may hurt my bones...and
so forth. But words will never hurt me. Come
along, Eric, dear, my mouth is watering for a lus-
cious candy bar."
ln this way the fun-loving seniors ended their
capers in the school. The next week was the last
for all of them. It was a time to be serious for it
was the final week of their stay at Lane.
In quick succession came the Farewell Prom,
the arrival of the Annual and finally, graduation
night. After that it was a saying of goodbyes and
the signing of autographs. Then came the hardest
part. That of bidding the school and good friends
farewell. The last day at the school and every senior
walked around in a daze. Somehow it was very hard
to leave. They had all wished to graduate and now
that they were through it felt funny not being able
to come back after vacation to greet their friends.
What was each thinking about as they went for
their last walk around the familiar nooks of Lane
Tech High? Their thoughts probably ran like this,
"Behind us lie the happy days of the last four years.
Ahead of us is the hidden future".

Mechanical Ilrawingzflimphasises drafting room
requirements. In a relative short time a boy ac-
quires the foundation of the draftsman. He learns
how to read blue prints and the manner in which
drawings are prepared for blue printing. The tools
and instruments and how a draftsman uses these to
the best advantage is part of this course.
If any exception can be made to the above state-
ment, it would be in favor of the two year electric
shops, which again covers a field becoming more
practical every day. It is giranted that in every semi
modern home of today can be found some electrical
device which will need servicing. The source of
most power of today is electricity, thus the tield is
large and popular.
