   M I If a U in cwmm £J3 EJ - a Ig—gjJ ■p u i { iMr. Andrew G. Hedin rjp() whom, with sincere appreciation of the friendly interest he has shown in all the activities of our school and ol his many vears of valuable service as President of the Board of Education, the class of 1931 dedicates its Hematite.FOREWORD We who live in the land of the Big-Sea-Water, made immortal by Longfellow, have chosen “Hiawatha” as the theme of our annual. The pictures introducing the various divisions of our book illustrate the following quotations: Administration : “Listen to the words of wisdom, Listen to the words of warning, From the lips of the great Spirit, From the Master of Life, who made you. Classes : “Skilled in all the craft of hunters. Learned in all the lore of old men. In all youthful sports and pastimes, In all manly arts and labors.” Athletics: “At each stride a mile he measured, Lurid seemed the sky above him, Lurid seemed the earth beneath him.” School Life: “Deeds are mightier things than words are, Actions mightier than boastings!” Junior High: “Who shall say what thoughts and visions, Fill the fiery brains of young men.” Advertisements: “From his pouch he took his colors, Painted many shapes and figures. And each figure had a meaning, Each some word or thought suggested.”HEMATITE HDMINISTRRTIDNfIIHSI?- 8MISi» HEMATITE A.D.CH15H0LM president 1930 THE BOARD OF EDUCATION S.F.

Seniors A ot in Pictures Dave Frederick John Janov Gordon Jerow Alsyvorth Johnson Leslie McCarthy Leo Piasecky Walter Romppainex Bernard Rouse 1931 Page Forty-twoHEMATITE Cl ass History J 1 hree short years ago there was brought forth in this high school a new class of sophomores, dedicated to the pursuit of learning (something) and to the proposition that all men (and women) are created equal! How successfully these principles have been achieved only the future can prove. After the usual struggle between our presuming selves and the superior juniors and seniors, we sophisticated sophomores, were given to understand that we, as our predecessors had, must endure the Girls’ Friendship League initiation, a never-to-be-forgotten experience. But, surviving this, we took up our responsibilities, whatever they happened to be, with a will. After we had established ourselves in our classes, we were able to devote our time to extra curricular activities—and football and basketball games. And it was the pride of every sophomore’s heart when one of our classmen made the teams and received his “1”. As juniors we came hack to high school familiar with our surroundings and confident of our place. After the first mad flurry of renewing friendships we attacked the serious business of life. The juniors presented “The Patsy” and everyone left the Memorial Building well satisfied. The main event of the year was the Junior Prom, at which we danced to the strains of soft music in an Egyptian ballroom—the gymnasium. September 1930 found us seniors and we were soon to learn the real significance of the word. We have found the senior year, traditionally the time of ease and comfort, to be harder than any. “To be or not to be” was one of our trials and tribulations but we did win the “Pep Scoop” at the end of football season. Our class party was a memorable affair. We were the first class to have jewelled rings and we were the envy of the underlings. And now, as spring comes for the last time while we are in high school, our eyes are in the future, the question on every lip is “After graduation—what?” We look with affection at the high school that has become a part of our lives and whose progress we will henceforth watch with jealous eyes. And if she has become a part of us, we only hope that we, likewise, have woven ourselves in some manner into her being. PROM — 1930 1931 Page Forty-threell aillfraSMi|i!=g= HEMATITE Junior Class Prophecy “Package for Mr. Erickson! Will you sign here?” The office girl took the pencil offered, and, after signing for the package, brought it in to Mr. Erickson’s office and left it on his desk. He regarded it for a moment, then tore open the letter which was sealed to the wrapping. Dear Sir, he read, "You will find inclosed in this package an instrument of immense value to you and to everyone who is vitally interested in planning his future. It will do away with the necessity of vocational counsel because it will foretell the future. Merely turn the dial, as you would any ordinary telephone dial, to the letters which spell the name of the person or group of persons whose future you wish to know. If, after you have listened to this instrument, you doubt its value, return it to us by the following mail.” Mr. Erickson cut the string, tore off the wrapping and lifted an ordinary black box from the paper that protected it. A white dial, inserted in the cover of the box was marked with the letters of the alphabet. This he examined carefully, and after a moment's hesitation he dialed the phrase, “Class of 1931.” Scarcely had he finished the last letter when the box began to talk, or perhaps it would be more correct to say that a voice came from the box. “This afternoon’s news briefs have been clipped from the leading newspapers of the country to inform you of your nation's celebrites. New York, Detroit, Chicago, Pittsburg, San Francisco and Washington papers have all contributed to this broadcast. First we read from the New Y'ork Times. “Miss Joan Joyce, author of the universally famous, “Resignation”, has been awarded the Nobel Prize for this year. The book, ‘Big Game’, in which Arthur Hiebel relates the story of his hunting trip with Frank Lesselyong in the wilds of Africa, is believed by some critics to excel ‘Resignation’ in its descriptions. The outstanding talent of Miss Marjorie Baldwin and Miss Isabelle Judd also helped to make a decision difficult to reach. Miss Joyce’s work in the literary field is extraordinary, however, and highly deserving of the prize. “Senator Pierpont’s speech, given yesterday over the air in defense of the proposed twenty-first amendment, appealed very forcibly to its hearers. Because of Mr. Pierpont’s enthusiasm and consequent rapid speech, two highly efficient stenographers, Anna Kravetz and Mary Simonich, who represented the press, were unable to get a written copy of his speech. “The president’s choice of cabinet members includes Lloyd Campbell, whose valuable diplomatic services in Germany during the Von Leideron-Zeppelin affair are not to be soon forgotten. It is predicted that Mr. Campbell will become a second ‘Silent Cal.’ • "Another of the heaviest losers in this, the latest financial panic to take its toll of Wall Street, was the firm of Robinson and Ketola, financiers. Lumber stock took a steep drop late yesterday afternoon. The firm’s losses as financiers of the new firm of Wickman and Gregory were not severe enough to prevent Mr. Robinson anc Mr. Ketola from being optimistic as to the outcome, stated their private secretaries Miss Stephany Augustyniak and Miss Ruth Anderson, today. “The choice of Arthur Ahonen for All-American full-back has been an unanimous selection on all the mythical teams of this season. Ahonen is known as the best punter in the history of the gridiron. 1931‘ Page Forty-four9111 H HEMATITE Oil III Es® III “Fashionable Hollywood witnessed the marriage of Miss Catherine Picker, the promising newcomer on the silver screen, and Mr. Henry Montague Von Landington at the church of St. John last evening. The well known comedienne, Helen Thornly, acted as her maid of honor, and among the celebrities present were Bill Boehme, the comedian who recently deserted the footlights for Hollywood, and Siiri Johnson, also of Broadway fame.’ “The Reverend Glenn Trethewav will deliver a sermon over the NBC network tonight. Rev. Tretheway is a powerful speaker and has a great deal of experience, having recently returned from converting the heathen in Asia Minor. His topic for this evening is entitled, “Pool-playing, a Vocation.” “The installation of the world's largest and most expensive organ into the magnificent New York Theatre has at last been completed. James Kennedy, KMOX artist, has accepted a contract as organist. T he theatre orchestra conducted by Betty Hcdlund will give a short concert at the dedication program which will include a violin solo by Eskel VVinquist. Other well known members of the orchestra are Eugene Fossie, Harold Anderson, Rexford Bates, Alfred Penrose, and Walfred Jacobson. “Miss Ingrid Raivio, famed painter, and her co-worker, Aino Jalonen, left yesterday for Europe, where they will study art under the continent’s best tutors. “Notable among the entertainments of this week are the appearances of Robert Kennedy, WGN’s famous tenor, Edward Nowell, trumpet soloist, and Collyard's Tune T inkers. All three names are constantly before our eyes on theatre and radio programs. “Miss Mia Pearson has returned from a three month’s tour of the Orient, where the editor of the Woman’s World, Miss Wilma Hoen, had sent her to obtain material for a series of articles for that magazine. The prominent interior decorator. Miss Arlove Erickson, traveled with Miss Pearson, but has remained abroad for a more extensive study of the Chinese art which is exerting such a marked influence on the interior decoration of American homes. “The world’s luckiest young man may be said to be Charles Highhill, and the most fortunate girl, Martha Junttila. Einstein’s selection of young Highhill out of the thousands contesting terminates his twelve months’ search for a portege, while Miss Junttila’s position as governess to Charless A. Lindberg, Jr., is a highly enviable one. “Elizabeth Kurtz has won first place for the University of Wisconsin in the National Collegiate Swimming Races, held this past week at New Orleans. I his is the third time this year that Wisconsin has placed at the national athletic meets. Clara La Blanc and Madeline Pydynkowsky won the other honors. “The last of this afternoon’s news flashes is of especial interest because of its author. The following is an excerpt from an article in the New York limes by Thomas Jeffery. “The port ratal of Hamlet by Russell Wilson in the revival of Shakespeare’s play by that name has caused considerable comment among literary circles. T he general opinion is that the production is far superior to the one in which John Barrymore starred some years ago. The cast includes Leah Heiskanen and Eunice St. John, who are very notable actresses. ’ The voice ceased speaking. Did Mr. Erickson keep that instrument? We wonder. =1931 Pat e Forty-fiveHEMATITE IMBIMM Last Will and Testament It is with great consternation and trepidation that we, the 1931 graduating class, view the impending termination of the school year, because we apprehend the inefficiency and the inability of the Juniors to maintain the position which we have struggled so hard to attain. But with our unfailing benevolence we have resolved that, in order to help out successors sustain the usual prestige of the highest class as adroitly and with as much dexterity as we, we shall bestow on these the things that have made us so outstanding as Seniors. It is with this purpose in mind that we have drawn up this our last will and testament. Our proverbial wisdom and dignity we do bequeath to our immediate successors, also our ability to ask questions. Ask questions! It is the best way to learn. When you can not remember the right answer to the teacher’s question, ask him one in return. This takes up much valuable class time. Red Anderson wills his “crooning” bass horn to any silent sufferer who dares to incur the animosity of all citizens between Lake and Curry Streets by tooting it while going to and from the music building. Betty Hcdlund’s highly developed talent for slinging sarcasm goes to Jeanette Gorman, along with an autographed much-thumbed book of “One Hundred and One Sarcastic Remarks to Relieve Tense Moments.” Leah Heiskancn bequeaths a tennis racquet to Esther Englund. (Faith in “exercise for more growth” is the policy of the donor.) John Pierpont’s unquestioned lung power, including the singing roles in “Hamlet” and the “T he Rising of the Moon”, is willed to Coach Wiley. T he famous Kennedy Ford has been left to Mr. Havicon for chemical analysis. Frank Lesselyong wills his wavy scalp adornment to the nearest shampoo parlor for advertising purposes. Joan Joyce leaves some very good advice to ambitious Juniors about carrying 75 points: Don’t! Jack Robinson leaves the hearts of the female host yearning for something to replace the lost treasure, and to the male element of the student bodv he wills a pamphlet entitled, “How to be Popular Though Good Looking.” Thomas Jeffery confers upon Eddie Bashara his exalted position as water boy of the 1930 football team. Billy Boehme has bequeathed his crust to Sandell’s Bakery, but the latter refused to accept it because of its inferior quality. Wilma H oen leaves Mr. Erickson her best wishes for a Happy New Year. (1932) We hereby declare this to be our true will and to supercede all others made by us in rash moments. In testimony thereof, we have hereunto set our hands and caused the Great Seal of the Luther L. Wright High School to be affixed thereon.

LUTHER FREDRICKSON MAX OIE DANA WILSON Tice President President Secretary and Treasurer The Class of 1932 On the first Tuesday of September in the tear nineteen hundred and twenty nine, the Luther L. Wright High School underwent a radical change. T his was caused by the entrance of the class of 1932 into the Senior High School. As Sophomores, we were dwarfed and ignored by the upper classmen, but such an array of talent as we possessed could not remain permanently hidden. Four of our men won letters in football, two held positions on the basketball team, and two were elected to the National Athletic Scholarship Society. Meanwhile, other members of the class were distinguishing themselves in intramural basketball, soccer, volleyball, and baseball, in the track meet, and by participation in musical, literary, scholastic, and declamatory competition. When we returned to school last fall, we were acknowledged to be the peppiest class in the school. Assuming an air of sophistication at once, we started the year out right by electing three fine officers and winning the Hematite sales contest. Our class play, “Tommy” was conceded to be the best that a Junior class has ever put on in our school. To demonstrate further our superiority, Miss Winter’s Room won the intramural basketball championship. Nine men received letters for their service on the gridiron and four were awarded letters in basketball. Our class was also well represented on the track team. Now, as the year draws to a close, we are looking forward to the time when we shall be Seniors, and in that capacity better our reputation. 1931' Page Forty-nine foot’ : Rozella Abraham, Gertrude Ahonen, Clarence Anderson, Edward Anderson, Mildred Anderson.

Review of the Football Season I he Ironwood Red Devils started the 1930 football season under the tutelage of a totally new staff of coaches. Air. Chester K. Wiley, head coach at East Green Bay high school for the last eight years was appointed head coach. He was assisted by Air. John Kraemer, of New Albany, Indiana. Air. Alark Almli, a graduate of St. Olaf College, and Air. William Henry of South Dakota State. These men took the nine lettermen and some eighty boys that reported at the beginning of the season and began immediately to teach them a new type of football. The candidates practiced faithfully to perfect their new style of attack by the first game with the Alumni on September 13. The Red Devils, displaying their new game to perfection, ran up seven points in the first half against the former stars. But during the second half the Alumni came back with an onslaught that finally netted them a tie. The next week, September 20, two busloads of boys journeyed to Wakefield to avenge last year’s 14-13 defeat. The objective was accomplished when they returned on the long end of a 19-0 score. On September 27 we were hosts to the black and gold from Iron Mountain. Air. Wiley used many substitutes on this day and for this reason the visiting gridders gave our team a great deal to worry about. However, Ironwood was the victor by 27-18. Rage Sixty-six =1931=HEMATITE When the team traveled across the state boundary on October 4 to meet an inexperienced Hurley eleven, they did not expect to encounter a great deal of opposition. Nevertheless the “Midgets” put forth a real fight. Our ball-toters had to scrap for every one of the 26 points that they managed to shove over the goal line. On October 11, one of the hottest days of the football season, Ironwood had little trouble in defeating an inferior Ashland aggregation 37-0. But the next week-end when the team journeyed seven miles to meet their old rivals, the Bessemer Speed Boys, they met a different kind of opposition. Ironwood came very close to a score the first half when they had the ball within two yards of the goal and the whistle blew. The Bessemer team put over the lone touchdown after the recovery of an Ironwood fumble. In sharp contrast to the Bessemer game of the week before, the fans saw, on October 25, what is said to be the best game ever played on Longyear Field. Central High School of Fort Wayne, Indiana, rode 400 miles to meet the Red Devils in an intersectional battle. A wonderful exhibition of “fight” was displayed during the first few minutes of the game by our team when they held Ft. Wayne for a number of consecutive downs on our own goal line. Then, as if to say “you’ve had your chance, now it’s our turn” we swept the Indiana team off their feet and garnered 15 points. On November 1 the Ironwood team was supposed to travel to Stambaugh but due to the fact that Bessemer and Iron River were playing an important contest in Iron River the Stambaugh team came here. Ironwood continued their excellent brand of football and sent Stambaugh home with a 32-13 defeat. The last game of the season was played against Superior Central High School. Ironwood had little trouble pushing over a score during the first few minutes of play but Superior came back with three tallies. The Red Devils made a marvelous comeback, however, the second half to tie the score at 20 all. Considering the two facts that the team played an entirely new type of football and that it was under the guidance of a new staff of coaches, the 1930 season is regarded by all as a successful one. Quite a few players will be lost by graduation but, as a result of the large number of substitutes used in every game, there are experienced men to fill every position, and prospects are bright for the fall of ’31. COACHES WILEY, KRAEMER, AI.MLI. AND HENRY IIB HEMATITE ARTHUR AHONEN, captain and unanimous choice for All U. P. honors for the last two seasons, has graced Longyear held for three years. I'his year Art took over the quarterback position after performing at halfback for two years. The Held generalship he displayed plus the ability to execute his regular duties to perfection have never been equaled by a player to wear the Red and White. He is, without a doubt, the most versatile athlete ever turned out at Ironwood High School. TOM YELICH, captain elect, alternated at the center and tackle positions. He played tackle on offense and center on defense and was a bulwark in the Red Devil line in every game. "Tommy” has the desirable quality of holding his own no matter what happens. Not a little is expected of Tom next year. MARTIN ANDERSON alternated with Tom Yelich at the tackle and center positions. He never had played center before this year but he developed into a very accurate and dependable passer. His stamina and Hght will be sorely missed when the coaches attempt to fill the gap he leaves next season. DANA WILSON, guard, was an able partner for Mike Albert at the guard position. He was practically as heavy as Albert and he used his avoirdupois to a good advantage in taking out the opposing linemen. Dana is a junior and will be back to help hold up his end of the line next year. RHINO KANGAS, fullback, played in every game except the Ft. Wayne contest when he was out because of illness. “Dago" was a bone-crusher on offense and a stone wall on defense. Fans will always remember the outstanding defensive game he played at Bessemer. Reino is just a junior and will be a three-letter man when he graduates. JOHN KELEKOVICH, halfback, was one of these “sweet" football players. He was held in high esteem by all those who opposed him. He and Arvo Pajula formed a perfect pair in breaking up the enemy passes and end runs. John was a plunger and open Held runner of very high calibre. Many a thrill did he give the rooters with his daring exploits on the gridiron. MIKE ALBERT, guard, was one of the heaviest men on the squad. He could always be counted on to open big holes in the opposing line whenever called upon. “Mike" started out the season without a great deal of experience and showed a remarkable improvement during the course of the games. 1931= Page Sixty-eightMIMOMHIB- HEMATITE giiii DAVE FREDERICK, who has held down an end position in the Red Devil line for the last two seasons, was one of the most versatile players on the squad. He could catch passes, cover punts, and stop end runs with great ease. Probably his greatest asset is confidence, and for this reason he was never outdone by an opponent. JOE Jl’DTH, end. was out the first half of the season with a broken hand but when he returned he made up for all time lost. He played especially well in the Stambaugh and Ft. Wayne contests when he thrilled the crowd with his deadly tackling and his snaring of long passes. LUTHER FREDERICKSON, a tackle, made up in “fight'' what he lacked in weight. He wras the lightest man on the Ironwood forward wall and yet he was one of the most feared. He was always on the alert and many a time broke through to throw the enemy backs for losses. “Luts” still has another year of high school competition. ARVO PAJCLA, earned a regular halfback berth his first year on the squad. He was a first class open field runner and a beautiful receiver of passes. “Paj” suffered a shoulder injury in the Stambaugh fray and was unable to play in the Superior game. With him in the lineup the Superior team might have found it a great deal harder to penetrate the Red Devil defense. CYRIL KERKOVE. halfback, was a new find this year. In the Ft. Wayne game, when it was found that Kangas was unable to play, Cyril got the call. He filled the position in a manner which would have done credit to a man twice his size. A great deal is anticipated from “Cy" next year. LLOYD CAMPBELL, halfback, gained the distinction of being the deadliest tackier on the squad. “Lid'' was fighter from start to finish and showed a splendid attitude at practice. He injured his arm about the middle of the season and was handicapped a great deal during the rest of the games. IJoyd is a senior. JOE DEDO, halfback, is one of those players who has no enemies. Nevertheless, he was one of the hardest-hitting tacklers and surest ground-gainers that fought for the Red and White. Joe was always on the job and was equal to any task the coaches gave him. He is one of those few men who possess the ability to block well. 1931 Page Sixty-nineHEMATITE RUSSELL WILSON, alternating at half and quarterback, won his letter last fall for the first time. “Russ’ was a sure tackier and a good ground gainer and his loss will be keenly felt by the coaches next year. “Russ" will graduate this June. FRANCIS MINKIN earned his letter at guard after two years with the squad. He turned in a good game against Ft. Wayne. Francis was one of the forwards that made that wonderful stand on the goal line during the first part of that game. It is too bad that Minkin is a senior. REGINALD WILLIAMS, end, was somewhat handicapped by lack of weight; nevertheless his ability to fight and to stop enemy end runs far overbalanced this deficit. “Reg”, a junior, is being counted on to hold down an end position next year. JOHN CZENKNER. guard, also a junior, is expected to take over one of the posts left vacant by this year’s forwards. He always proved capable of taking the opposing center out of the play so that his backfield could plaw through. He gained enough exerience in this year's games so that he will be able to hold down a regular berth with little trouble. WILLIS JOHNSON, end, was in the thick of every game he entered. He is lighter than the average football player but nevertheless held down his position very efficiently. This was Willis’ second and last year on the squad. He was a good tackier and pass receiver. LAWRENCE LAMARCHE, halfback, was one of the fastest players on the team. His speed was a valuable aid in dodging enemy tacklers. He is a field general of worth and will be considered for the quarterback post when the team dons the moleskins next September. RALPH COUSINS, center, won his letter his first year on the squad. Ralph showed as much improvement as any man on the squad. He is a valuable asset to the line because of his long reach and tackling ability. Ralph, no doubt, will see a great deal of service next year. 1931 Page SeventyThe National Athletic Scholarship Society The local chapter of the National Athletic Scholarship Society increased its membership this year by eight members. Three of this year’s members were elected to the society last year. The new wearers of the key were selected from a group of twenty-six lettermen. The organization has a purpose in that it fosters high scholarship among athletes and encourages the desire for a balanced training. It is a nation-wide institution and a member may be recognized by the possession of the society’s emblem—a solid gold key. Any boy who has won an athletic letter and who has, for three consecutive semesters, maintained an average in his schoolwork above that of the general average of his school, qualifies for membership. The following L. L. Wright High School athletes were awarded a membership this year: Lloyd Campbell, Willis Johnson, Reginald Williams, Ralph Cousins, Russell Wilson, Max Oie, William Lyne. Wallace Lewinsky. Stanley Prebish, Dana Wilson, and Luther Frederickson won the distinction a year ago. ===1931== Page Seventy-onell aill a 4!IIE HEMATITE THE BASKETBALL TEAM Almli (Assistant Coach), Lyne, Williams, Xordling, Yelich, Oic, Kraemcr (Head Coach). Prebish, Johnson, Ahoncn, Lewinsky, Kelekovich, Judth. Review of the Basketball Season Four letter men reported to coaches Kraemer and Almli at the start of the 1930-31 cage season, but a crowd of aspirants to that honor practised faithfully for several weeks before any games were played. On December 10 the Ewen five received a 32-15 trimming at the hands of the Red Devils. Seventeen Red-andWhite basketeers took part in this—the opening game. Two days later, December 12, an experienced Bergland five took the measure of the Ironwood quint by the close score of 16-15. Kraemer’s immensely improved squad defeated the Midget five the following week-end. however, 31-20. Ironwood journeyed to Iron Mountain January 9, the first game after the holidays, and lost a close decision to this year’s Upper Peninsula champion. The score-board at the final whistle read Ironwood 20, Iron Mountain 29. The next week, at the L. L. Wright gym, Bessemer administered a 24-13 beating to the Ironwood team in a slow, listless game. Stambaugh, last year’s U. P. champion, was the victor when Ironwood met them January 23 and was beaten 21-9. January 28 the Ironwood team gave Wakefield a real fight. The sad part of it is that the Cardinals were on top 26-23 when the smoke cleared away. Ironwood started out with a bang against Ishpeming three days later and it looked as though they were going to win. But the team weakened in the last quarter and Ishpeming carried home the long end of a 20-15 score. Five consecutive losses did not darken the spirit of the team and they were re- =1931 Page Seventy-twowarded for their perseverance February 4 when the Hurley Midgets fell before Iron wood’s onslaught 21-14. Ironwood traveled to Ashland that same weekend and broke even with the two Ashland teams. They won a decisive 22-9 victory over Ashland High School February 6 but the next night the Red Devils lost to the I)e Padua Parochials 16-15. Ashland High was again trimmed when they came here February 11. This game required an overtime period before Ironwood was crowned the victor 17-14. At the Washington school gym, February 18, the Bessemer Speed Boys won another contest from Ironwood, but this time the score board only registered 21-16. Ironwood dropped a heartbreaker to the Cardinal five here February 20. Again our cagers were leading near the close of the game, only to be nosed out 15-13. Negaunee, last year’s state class B champs and runners-up to I . P. honors this season, gave the Red Devils their worst beating of the year, February 26, when they won 35-15. Two days later Ironwood lowered the curtain of the regular playing season in a most wonderful fashion by defeating Iron Mountain, this year’s U. P. champion, 14-12. The victory was a fitting reward to a squad of players who just wouldn t give up. March 6 Ironwood went to the District tournament at Iron River as the underdogs. The Red Devils, however, were the biggest surprise of the tourney when they overcame a big lead that the strong Crystal Falls quint had piled up and pushed in the winning basket with only twenty seconds to go. The score was 21-20. I hough they were beaten the following night by Wakefield 19-17, for the District championship, they had won the right, for the first time in three years, to enter the Regional Tournament.

Page Seventy-three|! 3«l- BK«es= HEMATITE JOHN KELEKOVICH, who played the pivot position, has been a mainstay on the team for two seasons. “KleckM could be depended upon to get the tip-off more than his share of the time. He is a floor man and a sharpshooter of the very highest calibre. MAX OIE, forward, has been elected captain for next year. Max plays a very steady, cool-headed game and for this reason should make a splendid leader for the squad. He was one of the most accurate shots on the team this past season, being high point man in several games. WILLIS JOHNSON, forward, played off and on throughout the season. Whenever Willis entered a game he put forth every ounce of effort that he possessed. Willis is remarkably fast on the floor and used this asset to the best of his ability. THOMAS YELICH, guard, will have three basketball letters to his credit when he graduates. “Tommy” is a very versatile player and at times was used at the forward position. He has a shot that would make any coach happy. He and William Lyne will be the backbone of the defense next year. ARTHUR AHONEN, forward, a regular for the past three seasons, played outstanding basketball this year. His cool-headedness under fire brought the team through many a tight squeeze. “Art” is an excellent floor man and a very accurate shot. He finished his high school athletic career in a fine manner with the close of the present cage season. JOE JUDTH, guard, won a basketball “I” for the first time this season. Joe played a steady, consistent game and very often darkened the enemy’s hopes with a pretty long shot. His most outstanding game was played during the Hancock contest in the Regional Tournament. STANLEY PREBISH, who played at forward, had an uncanny eye for the basket. “Stash" didn’t play in many games but, when he did enter one, fans were certain of a fight on his part. This was Stanley’s second and last year on the squad. Page Seventy-fourHEMATITE JAMES NORDLING, forward and a sophomore, made a very favorable impression on the coaches at the beginning of the season. He was captain of the Junior High squad a year ago. “Jim” gained much experience this year and should prove a valuable man in the future. WILLIAM LYNE, guard, began the season as a member of the “B” squad. It was not until the Stambaugh contest that the coaches noticed his defensive ability. “Willy” is a fighter all the way through and proved this in the Crystal Falls game when, with twenty seconds to go, he put in the basket that won the game. COACHES KRAEMER and ALMLI developed a team which showed steady improvement throughout the season. FRANK LES-SELYONG was an efficient student manager of the team. REGINALD WILLIAMS, forward, plays a very steady type of basketball. He is a dribbler, passer, and floor man of above average calibre. “Reg” has still another season which should prove very successful if he keeps up his consistent good playing. WALLACE LEWINSKY, a guard, won a position on the squad because of his all-round ability. He was not a conspicuous player but did every thing well. Unfortunately, Wallace is a senior. 1931 Page Seventy-fivelll««aill 5 MIIIE HEMATITE III The Regional Basketball Tournament M arch 12, 13, and 14 were “red letter” days at the L. L. Wright H. S. Gymnasium for at this time was held the first Regional Basketball Tourney in the history of our city. These regional tournaments had been held at Marquette for the last 15 years but. induced by the efforts of Principal A. E. Erickson and other school officials, the State High School Athletic Association voted to send the Class B Regional Tournament to Ironwood in 1931. The eight best Class B teams in the Upper Peninsula gathered here to decide which two should represent this section at the State Tourney. Tournaments arc popular with fans and this fact was demonstrated by the success of the tourney from the standpoint of attendance and gate receipts. Mr. C. E. Wiley cannot be praised too highly for the efficient manner in which he conducted the tourney. Nothing was left undone to make our visitors’ stay a pleasant one. Teachers, townspeople, students cooperated in a most efficient manner. Principals, coaches, players, and fans were unanimous in their comments that this was the best tourney ever held in Upper Michigan and all were anxious that we hold the tourney again in 1932. The officiating of Messrs. Welker, McGinn and Judish was of the highest order and the crowds were orderly at all times. Following are the results of the games the first day: Hancock 31—Ironwood 26; Ishpeming 14—Negaunee 24; Wakefield 22—Painesdale 12; Iron Mountain 30— Escanaba 22. The second day Negaunee defeated Hancock 34-17, and Wakefield lost to Iron Mountain 20-21. Iron Mountain defeated Negaunee 22-19 for Regional Championship in a thrilling game. WakefieW defeated Hancock 24-18 for third place. 1931 Page Seventy-sixI HEMATITE Row : Leo I ehtinen. James Yonkosky, Joe Dedo, Anselm Palso, Jack Oliver.

Wright High School, which for the past five years have been active in presenting short programs throughout the school year, and have furnished the main group of participants for the annual gymnastic circus, are this year a group of excellent performers. Under the tutelage of Russell C. Hinote and L. I. Barnum, the boys have presented many exceptional programs and by excellent cooperation made the 1931 Circus the traditional success. Captain Nestor Wickman, Senior, handbalancer and tumbler, deserves much praise for his leadership as well as his performing. Cecil Rowe and John Oliver, ring, trapeze, and hand balancers, made a success of their final year of apparatus work. Joe Petrowsky, also in his last t ear of circus work, aand the oldest performer from point of service, outdid himself on his specialty, the slack wire. Jack Savage and Lloyd Campbell saw service for the last time on the tight wire and ladders respectively. Stanley Prebish was a finished juggler. Boys who will be back next year include Bert Malmquist, Evald Hoberg, and John Rajala. club swingers, the last of whom also walks the ladder along with Henry Sendek; Frank Bahun, tumbler; Earl Minkin, Nick Heikkela, Anselm Palso. and Hoberg, bar men; Leo Minken and Leo Lehtinen, ring men; Clarence Carlson, Clarence Anderson, James Yonkosky, Robert Mickelson, Joe Dedo, and Harold Schwartz, wire walkers. George Clemens is a tumbler. 1931 Page Seventy-sevenIl« ll!i- 5 £ll!!e§= HEMATITE SI !£ I The "I” Club The “I” Club is an organization composed of those boys who have won an athletic letter in a major sport of the high school. The club strives to promote leadership, loyalty, good fellowship, and sportsmanship among its members. It stresses the importance of the strict observance of training rules and urges its members to do good class work. A cardinal letter “1” with a border of white is the emblem of the club. This t ear the club took a leading part in making the U. P. Regional Tournament, which was held in Iroinvood, a complete success. The boys acted as ushers and sold programs and confections. The impression which they left on the people who attended the games will be a lasting one. The largest membership the club has ever had includes, this year: Mike Albert, Martin Anderson, Arvo Pajula, Dana Wilson, Lloyd Campbell, Reino Kangas, Luther Fredrickson, Dave Frederick, Lawrence La Marche. Russell Wilson, Cyril Kerkove. Joe Dedo, Ralph Cousins, Francis Minkin and John Czenkner, who won their letter in football; Stanley Prebish, Max Oie, William Lyne, James Nordling, Wallace Lewinsky, who are basketball lettermen; and Arthur Ahonen, Joe Judth, John Kelekovich, Reginald Williams, Willis Johnson, and Tom Yelich, who are “I” men in both sports. Page Seventy-eight 1931=I4I)4MD HEMATITE Girls’ Athletics The Department of Physical Education for Girls has fairly hummed with excitement all year. The season opened by rushing in soccer. Few toes were broken, not many shins ruined, and most important of all—the insignificant Freshmen upset all predictions and simply walked off with the tournament. When the boys gave up football and came inside to play basketball, we came in and began tossing the ball at the basket too. The spirit of basketball ran high and ended with a tournament such as has never been witnessed hitherto. Even the seniors bowed to the victorious juniors who were volleyball and baseball champions of the previous year. Along came volleyball accompanied by a deep growl from the athletes. However, often one week of practice, for some unknown reason, the old unpopular game acquired new thrills, and Sports Club was nursing sore wrists and fingers. Baseball! Ooh, the bats those sluggers ruined; Babe Ruth could have done no better with a soft ball. The champion sand lot players are still unknown—but the will have to be good to win. All in all, this has been a successful year. The practices at Sports Club turned out to be mass games but things have run like clockwork because of the work of the above captains. 'The girls in the group are captains of their respective teams in the gym classes, while Clara La Blanc, Madeline Pydynkowski, Florence Armatoski, Gretchen Van Stratum, Aino Koski and Fern Berguist captained the losing teams in intramural basketball and soccer. We hope that next year will be even more successful than this. =1931 Patje Seventy-nineMl MB' IMS HEMATITE Sophomores. Volleyball Champions 1930 Sophomores.

The Girls’ Athletic Association As the name implies, this association was organized for the purpose of promoting all athletic activities which should be a part of every girl’s life. Soccer,'basketball, volleyball, baseball, hiking, tennis, skating and tobogganing are the sports open to all high school girls. To be a member a girl must have earned 125 points in one or more of these sports. When she has earned 750 points, she may wear the G. A. A. pin. Numerals are awarded for 300 points earned on the first teams. The “I” which is the highest honor of the organization, is given only after the girl has earned 1400 points. The following girls have earned their ‘T 1031 Clara La Blanc, Madeline Pydvnkowskv, Ellen Neva. Wilma Hoen. 1032 Feme Focht, Catherine Olson, Lucille Zegoski.

Page Ninety 1931iraiMMIIB HEMATITE HEALTH CONTEST Health Week Health Week—just as the name implies—is a week set aside each year for the special observance of “good-living” rules. This is perhaps the most important work done in the high school, because it makes students realize how absolutely essential it is for them to develop beauty and strength of body and points out in what ways they may achieve this perfection. The girls’ physical education classes have always led in furthering this type of work, but this year the members of the boys’ department also took an active part in the program. In order to stimulate competition and enthusiasm in this splendid work, a health contest was carried on, in which all students of both the junior and senior high schools were permitted to take part. In the Senior High Feme Foeht and Joe kropko were awarded first honors, while Gretchen Van Stratum and James Nordling were given second place. In the Junior High Marguerite Pearson was ranked first among the girls and Lillian Gustafson second, while Bruce Johnson and Wesley Johnson won first and second places among the boys. During health week, interesting as well as instructive assemblies were presented each morning by certain departments of the high school, illustrating some of the chief health points. The main things emphasized throughout the week were posture, shoes, teeth, foods, and general health. Excellent results were obtained from this program, and it is hoped that in future years the “health-minded” students will still live up to Rousseau’s words: “Strength of body and strength of mind, the reason of the sage and the vigor of an athlete, exhibit the most perfect model of a man and the highest refinement of the mind.” 1931= Page Ninety-one HEMATITE Row : Fred Jeppesen, Frank Wiercinski, Charles Brock, Edward Anderson, Edward Bashara, Erro Heikkinen, Robert Lee, Matt Berlin, Donald Anderson, Thomas Bassett, Harold Holemo, Tom Dahlen, William Caddy, Everett Waltonen.

During the year Mr. Eley gave instructive lectures on the construction and operation of both the automobile and Diesel engines. At the weekly meetings the members discussed the merits and demerits of the commercial antifreeze solutions, car heaters, and front wheel drive cars, as well as other important developments in the evolution of present day transportation vehicles. 1 ronwood’s leading cat dealers gave interesting talks concerning their respective cars at open meetings to which the club invited all students interested. Programs were exchanged with the Science Club to mutual advantage. At the end of the year the members enjoyed a fishing party.

On November 14, they gave an all school party. One of the main features of the evening was the modernistic art exhibit. This was followed by dancing, card playing, and fortune telling. The proceeds of the party were used to defray the club expenses. The Art Club is organized to give the members an opportunity to apply their knowledge of Art to various craft problems. Much of the work this year has been devoted to the Italian method of using gesso in relief work. Book ends, jewelry boxes, plaques, vases, and various other articles have been made. Other individual projects included wall hangings, leather purses, batik handkerchiefs, pillow tops, and scarfs. In May an art exhibit was held in charge of the Art Club under the direction of Miss Newberry. The officers of the club are Ingrid Raivio, president; Dagmar Jacobson, vice president; Julia Mackey, secretary and treasurer. 1931 Page Ninety-fiveI SIMMIIB HEMATITE Row : Edward Nowell, Arthur Hlebel, Jack Washburn, Victor Collyard.

Page One Hundred FiveThe Gymnastic Circus J The Gymnastic Circus, staged by the Boys’ Physical Education Department in 1931 for the fifth time, has established itself as an annual event. It has been built up since its organization so that it equals or surpasses any high school event of its kind in the country. The 1931 Circus truly lived up to the traditional slogan of the annual performance "Bigger and Better.” Practices were held daily from September to the latter part of April in all branches of gymnastic and apparatus work. Over sixty boys took part in this training at least twice a week, and in addition a Clown Club was added to the circus activities and boasted a membership of fifteen boys. The cooperation of the club members and their earnest interest in developing new and better stunts in their specialties made the 1931 Circus a fitting culmination of the experience of the directors and the older members of the club, of the efficiency of a trained management staff, and of the will of the new members to emulate or surpass the efforts of their more experienced club mates. The boys who took part in this year’s Circus took advantage of every opportunity offered them by the wonderful RUSSEL C.

Although training for the various gymnastic events is the greatest source of enriching the hoys’ experiences and of giving them desirable contacts and other things recognized by school authorities to be valuable to the school life of the child, the success of the training rests with the finished product. lo this end the 1931 event satisfied even the most critical, with new stunts in tumbling, hand balancing, work with rings and trapeze, horizontal bar, cycle riding, juggling and balancing, wire walking, ladder walking, and clown work. New events added to the large list included club swinging, perch pole, parallel bars, and foot work. The annual uptown parade drew its child and adult admirers to the curb stones and windows for glimpses of what would be seen during the “Grand Entry” and main performance at night. New lighting effects, gay costumes, brightly decorated props, and a feature Grand Finale, which included performers from every act on the program all performing at the same time, made the 1931 Circus a very successful culmination of the gymnastic extra-curricular activities of the Ironwood High School Physical Education Department.

Circus Managers The student circus managers have each year contributed a good share toward the success of the big performance by excellent cooperation and execution of the duties assigned their various offices. They have, under the supervision of the circus directors and faculty members of the circus directing personnel, been the motivating force in making the annual show a smooth running performance.

Sept. 27: The “Mountaineers" came down to show lronwood how to play football, but the tables turned and we showed them instead. In fact we beat them 27-18. Sept. 29: Report cards for the five weeks issued today. Stand by to man the lifeboats! Oct. 3: No school this afternoon. Students all flock out to see the dedication of the new airport. Oct. 4: Another victory! We played Hurley and won 29-0. Oct. 6: Playcrafters’ Initiation. The new members seem to be just as sound and healthy as before. Oct. 10: Mr. Havicon initiates a new system of pep assem- blies. The juniors are the first to win the "Pep Scoop.’’ Oct. 11: We certainly have a football team to be proud of. We beat Ashland today. Oct. 13: Blue Monday and the thirteenth! Oct. 17: What a day! To begin with, the peppiest assembly ever. Then the pep parade through town with torches, horns, and what have you, and to end it all a huge bonfire with the burning of Bessemer’s dummy. Oct. 18: Ring down the curtain! It’s unbelievable, but Bess- emer won the game. Oct. 20. Seniors rush home from school to read long neglected book reports. The earliest hour of retirement was 2:00 A. M. Oct. 25: We have come to the conclusion that perhaps the 1931 Page One Hundred SineHEMATITE I Pep Club is of some use anyway. We base our belief on the fact that maybe the breakfast that they cooked for the Fort Wayne boys had something to do with that team’s defeat this afternoon. Oct. 26: The Fort Wayne team returns home to cor- rect their fellow student’s beliefs concerning out little city. Many L. L. Wright girls suffering the pangs of the lonesome. Oct. 31: The sophomores win the “Pep Scoop.” Also a mysterious atmosphere prevails. ’Tis Hallowe'en. Nov. 7: Billy Boehme showed his talent as yell master this morning when he led the seniors to success in winning the “Pep Scoop.” Tonight was the big all-school “vodville.” Nov. 8: After tying Superior in the game this afternoon, the team was entertained by the “Pep’’ club. Nov. 11: An armistice program was presented to a joint assembly this morning. Nov. 14: Those who attended the Art Club’s all-school party found Ingrid Raivie a charming fortune teller. Nov. 18: Buzz-buzz-buzz. Have you seen the new Junior boy? 'Take your time, girls. Nov. 21: The Pep Club party was one big success. Nov. 25: Hirvela’s and Jeanette’s studios are getting the annual rush this week. Juniors and seniors alike are having one very hard time in making up their minds as to which proof is the best. Nov. 26: Students rush home to begin their Thanksgiv- ing vacation as early as possible. Nov. 27: Thanksgiving — meaning too much turkey, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, etc. Nov. 28: “I lav in my bed of snowy white With eyes wide open throughout the night. With pains within and pains without And 1 lay bravely trying not to pout.” — A little verse chanted by most students this day. Jan. 5: More classes and general despondency. Jan. 10: Temperature drops. Junior boys sew on red flannels. Jan. 26: Semester exams. (No wise cracks necessary here). Jan. 30: In dramatizing "Hamlet," Billy Boehme made a charming and graceful Queen Gertrude. feb. 6: I onight saw one of the best, if not the best, operettas ever produced bv the glee clubs. Bob Kennedy makes a good sailor. Feb. 7: Since the I)e Padua High team was playing the Red Devils, a bus load of L. L. Wrighters with Mr. Alrnli and Miss Miller as chaperones went to Ashland. Feb. 13: Friday the thirteenth! Dec. 3: Statistics show that all the soap used by the Hi-Y could be comfortably lodged in a spectacle case. Dec. 10: The first basketball game of the season ended in a victory for Ironwood. Hoo-ray! Dec. 11: At a very impressive ceremony held in assembly this morning, ten seniors were initiated into the National Honorary Society. Congratulations are in order. Dec. 18: The basketball team was again successful in over- coming Hurley. Dec. 19: Christmas vacation begins. There is no rest for the wicked. 1931 Page One Hundred TenIIISs= HEMATITE «=s3 Ill 11 1 Pec. 25: Tom Jeffery rushes down stairs at 6 A. M. to investi- gate Santa Claus theory. Jan. 1: Happy New Year, everybody. Feb. 14: We surmise that Joan received a valentine today. At least we saw Jimmy buying one at Woolworth’s. Feb. 17: “Mickey” Hassinen reported to have joined Ku Klux. (Later in day: Wrong! It’s a Bessemer High School ring.) Feb. 20: Sophomore playcrafters entertained the assembly with a clever one act play entitled “His First Dress Suit.” Feb. 22: Washington's birthday. All boys with an eye upon the future turn over a new leaf for one day. Feb. 26: A program that was enjoyed to the utmost by the student body was presented by the “Apollo Male Trio.” We regret that there will not be any more such entertainments. Mar. 3: Mr. Sanford certainly delivers some interesting as well as useful information in his lectures. Mar. 4: The senior rings are here. Those who did not order any jewelry are quite envious. Mar. 5: The Playcrafters presented their play, “The Blossoming of Mary-Ann" at the Memorial Auditorium this evening. Marian made a sweet Mary-Ann. March 2: Plucky! We’ll say! Russell and Ralph started hiking to Iron River. Just think what a tragedy it would have been if they had not been given a lift. March 12: Many of the girls' hearts flutter as the Class B tourna- ment approaches. March 13: Ironwood hasn't seen so much excitement for quite some time as it does right now with this tournament and all. March 14: The final day of the tournament ends with the recognition of Iron Mountain as the champs. March 19: Senior English class bravely wades through Emerson’s essay — “Self Reliance.” Anders Johnson wishes Emerson was living now. We wonder why, Anders. March 20: The Playcrafters had a ‘ver nize' time at their party. So did the boys who attend- ed the matinee dance this afternoon, but they’re still wondering what happened to all the girls. March 22: The boys and girls glee club presented a joint concert this afternoon. Bob and Rose are to be praised on their fine voices. March 23: Many junior and senior boys contract the annual attack of Spring Love. March 27: At last — Hi-Y party. April 1: April’s Fool’s day. Everybody fooled, even Mr. Erickson.

April 10: Senior class play. April 30: The circus has come to town and has put up its rigaina-jigs in the L. L. Wright gymnasium. May 6: Our glee clubs travelled to Bessemer to appear on the program there. May 7: The Woman’s Club entertains the senior girls. May 22: I he long awaited night has come. We dance amidst a beautiful Japanese garden. ’Tis the Junior Prom. June 14: Baccalaureate services. June 17: Senior picnic. Will we ever forget this day when we seniors were all having one jolly time together? June 19: Graduation! 1931 Page One Hundred ElevenHEMATITE Our Modern Heroes of History How can a "Hero of History" be modern? Well, that’s for you to figure out. We have proved (somehow or other) that Einstein’s theory of relativity cannot be applied here. However, we do not dispute the noted Irish scientist’s claims though we believe that he could play golf better if he drank Green Rivers instead of goat's milk and ate more Hamby bread. Nuff said. "Heroes of History” may not be modern, but we do have some “Modern Heroes of History” right here in our own school. See for yourself: John Pierpont, "Piper": Maybe you don’t know what we know. But we know that John thinks we don’t know that he thinks we know that he thinks he's Socrates. But we do. Furthermore, we don’t like John because he looks too much like "Bull’ Mantana. Have you heard a crow cawing on a summer morning when the barn gate was creaking open and a proud hen was explaining all about her last egg? Well, that has no connection with John’s singing. John Kelekovich, "Kleck Oh! Girls, here’s your chance to get something on this Romeo at last. "Kleck" is a great basketball player. Don’t you believe it? Ask him. Say girls, don’t you think he looks like "Shelley?” Yes, we realize that he has such a hard time writing notes, let alone poetry, but, it’s his looks we mean. We thought "little Johnny” would be crazy about the name too, — "Percy Bysshe?” Catherine Picker, “Billy": Here is a girl weighted down with the cares of the world. (Every Sunday night.) Queen Elizabeth. Billy claims she can eat more mashed potatoes than anyone in the Senior class. Filmore Ketola, "Shrimp”: Oh, let’s see, we’ve got to make a "Hero of History" out of you, don’t we? I'ry Ivan IV (the Terrible) of Russia. He was a little batty too. "Cannon Ball” Jeffery. Tom Jeffery: Who hasn’t seen this gay young Othello plodding his weary way through the snowdrifts towards "Pewabic by the river?” Tom came over from Bessemer about twenty years ago, to join us. Good old Bessemer! Oh, man, that’s a wonderful place, — all the rroads stop there. Jack Robinson, "Red": Self-styled Beau Brummel extraordinary. In appearance Jack embodies the characteristics of Rudolph Valentino. What a dandy! Red left Ashland because the girls wouldn’t give him time to practice his music, and came here, thinking to find quiet and seclusion. Alfred Penrose, “Sparrow”: Napoleon Bonaparte. Winner of the pewter spoon for sagacity. Sweets for the sweet, small things for small people. Hence we will not bother to write anything about this imbecile. Furthermore, we choose to keep this annual out of the courts. vJ SI ■ ♦; -llll BM 1931 Page One Hundred Twelve3111 ♦ IDB» HEMATITE Russell Wilson—“Alimony Alex from the big timber”: At last, Ladies and Gentlemen, we are privileged to present to you the one and only R. “Sprague” Wilson. Lord Chesterfield, — he satisfies. Russell is the one and only reason why so many girls get on the honor role. Who hasn't seen this animated stringbean go tearing down the main drag with his reconstructed Gertie doing her best under the tremendous weight of knowledge and blubber (I)ana of course.) Betty Hedlund — “Queen of Sheba": Petite, dashing, and debonaire. Betty claims she could count to five all in one breath when at but the tender age of seven. I hat s when you used to live in Gurney, isn't it, Betty? When Betty grows up she says she’s going to try to make “small things” count. She's going to teach first graders mathematics. Victor Collyard, “Henry VI11”: Our Hero from Hibbing. He is very fond of traveling. We’ve caught him many a time hiking out to Newport, Norrie, or over on the North Side. Wonder why? Vic's a very studious lad, however; he doesn't let his school work bother him. He'd be all right but he wears his hair "a la Hohenzollern." Peter Cybulski, “Pete”: Nero the Butcher. Peter's all right in his way, but he weighs too much. Sure, we ll admit that that's pretty old, but Peter himself didn't get out of Central School until it burned down in 1913. Yes, Peter has a real future ahead of him if he can only catch up to it. Leah Heiskanen: We’ll let you be “Queen Gertie" of Denmark, consult Miss Goudie’s English Class.) (If you don't know why, Joe Michalak, “Gamak": Big Joe, the dress designer. Joe goes home every day after school to drive the bees home. Joe, after a series of so-called strange interludes, we have decided to let you be Trotzky (What a history!) The lad with the ‘hairy personality," with the confidence of a camel; he hits high “C' too. Joan Joyce. “Daniel Boone ”: Wild and wooly and getting noisier every day. Joan favors prohibition. Some night she's going to get her gang together and clean up the places that are still running, or else running stills, as you will. Joan's interests are centered around solitaire, ant-killing, and treesitting. Her favorite actor is Ben Turpin. APOLOGIES? ETC!! Gentle readers (at least we hope so): Please do not stain these two short pages of (hoped for) laughter with your salty drops of woe if you are not listed among these defunct figures of history. You're lucky! If we have not made your laughter come, there must be something wrong, either with you or with us. But we've said enough about you and we don’t like to sav anything about ourselves because everybody knows already what a bunch of hambones we are anyhow—(to try to satisfv you.) At any rate, we’ve tried, so please give us a grin or two, at least,—save your tears until you come to your picture. 1931 Page One Hundred ThirteenHEMATITE =«I)4WI6MI 1931= Page One Hundred Fourteen193 li Page One Hundred FifteenIM ll!4aMIB» HEMATITE 1951= Page One Hundred SixteenIIIE HEMATITE 1931HEMATITE SI?"8Ma69»a i CLASS OF 1934 1931 Page One Hundred EighteeiHEMATITE CLASS OF 1935 1931 Page One Hundred Nineteen|! g»ai3E.f!lie§= HEMATITE 4IMNl»»l Page One Hundred Twenty|l=HIII.: 5M!l!Es= HEMATITE «t a Mill III STUDENT COUNCIL Row : Robert Hartley, Wesley Johnson, Louis Petrusha, William Tonkin, Jack Healy, James Hager, Henry Finko.

HEMATITE •« Junior High School Cluhs One of the objectives in a school system is to teach pupils the worthy use of leisure time. In accordance with this objective we have established 20 clubs in the Junior High School this year. The membership is made up of about 450 eighth and ninth grade students. These clubs meet during the activity period on Wednesday. All students in the eighth and ninth grades are urged to join some club, but are not required to do so. Only in very exceptional cases are students allowed to join more than one club. In addition to these regular clubs, we have the Hexagon, composed of honor students from all three Junior High School grades; the Student Council composed of one pupil from each home room; the Student Patrol composed of pupils who are selected by the Student Council. The following clubs are active this year: Airplane Club sponsored by Mr. Blomiley has a membership of 16. Camp Cookery sponsored by Miss Marackman has a membership of 25.
