Lt. Col. H. E. Jones
Colonel Alones is the man
who helps Out the seniors
when they are in a scholastic
chaos and is therefore re-
membered hy them when they
leaye the school. 'l'l1e Colonel
is always eager to assist and
only a word from him is of
value. lle is one of the most
loyal and ardent hackers of
cadet activities, and no pep
meeting would be complete
without a last word from him.
'l'he Colonel is in constant
demand to tell the cadets his
numerous stories which are
both humorous and helpful.
Col. H. D. Abells
In Colonel Ahells the cadets
find a real friend and a good
soldier. lle is one of the
most loyal members of the
faculty if his attendance at
Cadet functions is a criterion.
llis cheery nature makes many
cadets feel that in him they
have a good and true adviser.
lfle often ends many chapel
periods hy giving the cadets
the main and underlying idea
of the speaker's talk as it
applies to our cadet life. His
daily visit to the infirmary is
appreciated by those who are
confined by illness.

MAJOR EDVVARD BOUMA
Major Bouma is the man who takes care
of the cadet life and sees that things run
smoothly. He is a man who has sympathy
for us when we do Wrong, but will always give
us a square deal. The Major puts enthusiasm
into anything we may do and is loved and
respected by all.
CAPTAIN CARL Ii. DRIGGERS
P. M. S. df T.
In Captain Driggers the cadets find a real
friend and a true adviser. His loyalty to the
school is unquestioned, and it is shown by his
hard work and sincere efforts in obtaining
the honor school rating for the second time,
last year. As a proof of their confidence in
him, the seniors have seen fit to elect him their
adviser this year.
CAPTAIN VV. GREENMAN
Captain Greenman who has been with us
since last year has already endeared himself
to the cadets for his kindly attitude. He works
hard to make the school a success and has
done much to beautify the campus already.
He often does hard manual labor himself,
which makes him even more popular with
the corps of cadets.
CAPTAIN HERIVIAN MAYHEW
Principal, The Lowfr School
Captain Mayhew is an old timer at Morgan
Park and is loved by every graduate of the
Lower School. He has been at the Academy
for a long time. He is highly respected by
the cadets. His is a kindly nature and a
patient disposition, which are just the things
needed for the development of a group of

lll'i direction of the lfnglish department is in the hands of Captains Dakin
and Taylor. This department takes in all of the cadets because three years
of this subject are now required for graduation and most of the seniors in addition
are taking their fourth year of lfnglish for college entrance.
Xlany different methods are used to teach the courses this year. ln the fourth
year the different works of the great Writers are thoroughly studied, and exhaustive
exams are given to see if the seniors comprehend the styles of the different authors.
ln Captain 'l'ayfor's classes an outline or syllabus is used. The cadets are required
to do extensive aifd com-
. prehensive reading of ,
poems, short stories,
essays. and novels.
'llhe syllabus used in
the ,lunior year was pre-
pared by Captain Taylor
in collaboration with
R. l.. Lyman, a professor
of linglish at the lvniver-
sity of Chicago. Capt.
Dakin is the "First ling-

Foreign Language Department
Hli diHerent tongues taught in this department are: French, Spanish and
Latin. Captain Paul teaches the modern languages, French and Spanish,
while Captain Mclntosh heads the Latin department.
Captain Paul is especially able to teach because each summer he attends school
in hlexico, and travels through the country, speaking with the people in their
native tongue. He uses his phonograph to help the students get the correct
pronunciation and it is also used to help the cadets to memorize poems. He
receives periodicals from France, Spain and hlexico which prove interesting to
those who have a fair reading knowledge of the languages.
In the Latin department may be found many replicas of the early
Roman and Grecian im-
plements and weapons.
Captain lX'lclntosh also
has charts with the dif-
ferent declensions and
conjugations on them,
which he uses in teaching
"those darn thingsf,

1lllS department offers the laboratory sciences, chemistry. physics, biology,
and general science. Nlost of the seniors take chemistry although it is not
required. Captain Hewitt instructs tlte classes and he requires a great deal of
written material from them. Physics is a course usually taken by the juniors
under the tutelage of Captain Hirschy. This course concerns the science of the
world about us, and should give valuable information to the students.
Biology is a sophomore subject, but seniors and juniors also may be found
in this class. Captain Dodd teaches the students in the course the basic principles
of research and laboratory Work that a doctor in the making has to go through.
General science is required of all the freshmen and it is handled by Captain llirschy,
ln this course the frosh get a start in using the laboratory, and a general knowledge
of thc science of common things.

XYHAT is THE xjALlTIx or X?
HIS department has more diverse subjects than any in the curriculum. In
the freshman and sophomore years algebra and plane geometry respectively
are required. In the senior and junior years the following are electives: advanced
algebra, trigoncmetry, solid geometry, college algebra, and mechanical drawing.
Those who teach in this department are: Captain Gray, Captain Mahon, Colonel
Abells and hir. Price. Captain Gray is in charge of the department.
In the junior year the same schedule that was inaugurated last year has been
carried out. Trigonometry is followed by advanced algebra instead of solid
geometry. Mechanical drawing under the instruction of Captain IXf'Iahon is another
form of mathematics. This subject has proven very popular with the student
body. The purpose of the course is to teach the basic principles of draftsmanship.

Social Science Department
lllf Social Sciences consist of the following subjects: world history, American
history, American government, social problems, community civics. economics.
and typewriting. Most of these courses are taught by the unit system, which
has proven very popular with the cadets.
Xlvorld history is under the direction of Captain Ilewitt, and it isa combination
of modern and medieval and ancient history. lt formerly took two years but
is now a one year course. Colonel -Iones teaches American history and this course
is now required of all graduates. American Government is taught by Captain
lfleming. The intricacies of social problems and economics are taught by Captain
Nlahon, each subject requiring a half year. The freshmen are all required to take
community civics from Captains Dodd and Wvilson. This subject is very essential
in starting the freshmen off right in the social sciences. Typewriting is taught
by Xlr. Price, and many take this course because it helps them a great deal in
being prepared to write their college papers.

l'l'll the graduating of these men we cannot but feel that We are losing some
of the most capable and spirited leaders that We have ever had among us.
During their stay at the Academy they have shown line spirit and have set an
example for coming classes to live up to. We sincerely hope that many of them
will gain as much prominence after they graduate as they have here. They are
leaving vacancies among the oflicers which will no doubt be hard to replace. The
whole corps join in wishing them success individually in whatever line they take
up, and we hope that they will keep up the friendships that they have made while
at the Academy.

NDICR the leadership of Captain I". S. Gray as faculty adviser, and Cadet
Arcus as President, the junior class has carried on the traditions of former
classes. The most important accomplishment of the class was the publishing of
the SKIRNIISHILR for which we are largely indebted to Marla Pornaranc, the
editor. and his staff, with the help of lXlr. Price as Faculty Adviser. Xlany mem-
bers of the class took part in this project and we have endeavored to produce a
book of which the Academy may be proud.
The class was well represented in all the activities of the school. An unusual
number of juniors were awarded varsity letters. In this class are the officers of
next year and We feel confident that among this group are many, who are satis-
factorily able to replace those who are graduating.

thing funny. On the track he is some high
stepper, and as a linguist he is unsurpassed.
George is Captain Gray's star junior math
student? At least he gets most ofthe attention.
He is noted for his quaker spirit. CSee Captain
Gray.j This is his first year at the Academy.
He was recruited from limpehi, and has quite
a few cute acquaintances down there.
G'Bob,' is partly to blame for this book. As
a halfback he proved indispensable to the
lights in football. We hope to see him on the
varsity squad in '32, His favor among his
classmates was shown when they saw lit to
elect him as president of their class.
Donald is the "petit-enfant" of the varsity
football squad. ln a few years however, we
hope that he will grow so that he will earn a
berth on the squad. He also is the "kaydet"
in the Drum and Bugle Corps who plays the
big base drum, and oh how he can beat it.
Vlihen "black" submits a sample of his lit-
erary ability to the Amdfmy Newr, we all
must consult the dictionaries. A few samples
of his writing may be found by turning to
the "Cadet Life" section of this book. Jack
is Providencels gift to Morgan Park.
Frank is the boy who goes in for model
airplanes and autos in a big way. His pet
peeve is to have someone come into his room
and play with some implement of his making.
Thanks to Frank the juniors turned in many
good motors to Captain Hirschy.

" Bill" is just another one of those lucky day-
students, but this soft life hasn't stopped him
from entering in many of the school activities,
especially as a track man. Ile may be seen
every day pounding around the track in that
green outfit of his.
Rodger enrolled as a boarding student but
found it quite boresome and just to add variety
he became an every-other-day-student. We
hope that he found the program very satis-
factory. The time he spent at the Academy
was mainly spent in the barber's chair.
"jack" is a lover of solitude and his favorite
pastime is seeing that Habich comes to no evil.
This keeps him rather busy, but he found
time to help out the school teams. On the
track he is quite an asset to the relay team.
When "Ray" came to the Academy, Paxton
lost a good basketball player, but the Academy
has no regrets to offer. "Ray" is an all-
around good fellow as well as an athlete, and
in two years he has won many friends among

Here is the author of the junior section of
this book. Curiously enough he also has
musical ability and plays a French Horn in
the band where he holds down the office of
sergeant. He is also well known among the
corps as a comretent waiter.
"Ken" is just another sad example of a
boarding student taking up the life of a day
student. He does not let this however stop his
interest in radio. He is another member of the
S. B. club. CAsk the editor for the deciphering

-lose has proven a life saver to many a
despondent student of Spanish. And he's al-

for this help.j Basketball is his best line, but
he is interested in other sports.
"Torn" has to take a few days otl now and
then in order to let the teachers catch up.
Besides doing his share to make the senior
section what it is, he takes part in the school
activity known as the Rifle Team.
Anyone who has not heard the sweet strains
of "VVib's" baritone on parade has a treat in

trouble. lf we had a few more milers like him
it sure would be too bad for the railroads.
Henry Ford will have to watch his step

"Bob" is the big noise of the Drum and
Bugle corps. He spends most of his time telling
how he passes the time while in Rockford. He
is one of the official managers of the school.
CThat is of the teams.l He is renowned as
quite a student: 'Ll'ih, what?"
" Barney" and Kornstein are inseparable pals
and playmates. Vliherever you see "Barney"
you may be sure that "Korney" is around.
This was his first year out for the varsity
football squad and he made his sweater. It
is rumored that Walter llinchell is an under-
study of his.
Since Karl has given up motor-cycling, and
bought a car he has been the envy of the
boarders. lncidentally it is about time that
he was again leaving the Academy to take up
the life of a civilian. Hc also is quite a useful
fixture in the armory.
Anyone desiring information on the shortest
and easiest way to get into trouble see Karl.
During his career at the Academy he has re-
ceived no end of information on the subject.
and if you wish any information on it we are
sure that he will oblige you.
" Bernie" is one of the latest developments
which modern science has given us. He has
proved to be a very valuable accessory when-
ever a theme has to be typewritten in a hurry.
ln the afternoons he may be found with Schlei-
cher on the Rihe Range.
"Doc" is one of our social highlighters.
Vie think that he will prove to be quite a
cut-up some day. His one great aspiration is
to become a cadet officer, and we sincerely
hope that he succeeds. He is one of the most
serious minded juniors in the class.
The I932 Skirmisher
"Jerry" is one of the few cadets who has
mastered the art of getting into trouble and
out of it without a scratch. "jerry" has
shouldered the job of being Hokin's shadow and
has made a good job of it. He is known as
one of the most studious juniors?
Hubert's great and enviable accomplishment
is the ability to sleep in any position whatso-
ever. Aside from the aforementioned great
ability as a scholar he is very good natured,
and can be noticed by the crowd of cadets
that are usually in his room.
And here we have the Coco Cola king of
the future. john is another remarkable product
of Captain Gray's Advanced Algebra class.
His one great ambition is to become a cadet
officer, and his imitation of a machine gun
cannot be rivalled, even by a machine gun.
To him goes the credit for the fine Way in
which the LowerSchoolNewsiswritten. Products
of his literary ability may be found in every
edition of the Academy Nfwf. No musical
organization is complete without '4I,orny" and
his tenor saxophone.
When "Hal" came to the Academy, Keller
found another partner in crime. Perhaps some
of his successes can be attributed to this cause.
ln the orchestra he plays the drums. and on
the diamond his ability as a baseball player is
"Stewy" is the Academy authority on how
to win the good favor of the faculty. But
this is not his only pastime, this year he made

has to offer is his stream-lined haircut.

"Pete" is a good little boy and seldom gives
trouble? On his free afternoons he haunts the

fight he has no equal, and next year we expect
great things from him on the gridiron.

cadets. Anyone who is interested in becoming
a first class "ditcher" consult "Howie".

far as we can notice, no evidences of his past
experiences have shown themselves, so we be-
lieve that maybe he was only a common hired
man. He is quite an authority on the correct
Way to Wait table.
"Weinie" is a piano mover by trade. His
secret ambition is to succeed Clark Gable, and
the fair sex cause him no small amount of
worry. His ability as a waiter is unquestioned
as is his ability as a marksman. Vlithout
him HC" Company would be at loss for candi-
dates for extra drill.
"Speed" is the super waiter de luxe. For
his sport he took up weight lifting in the
winter, and in the spring he goes out for the
half mile so that he will be able to carry that
big horn of his around.

adviser they chose lylajor Bouma, and for their president, Charles Sigman
was elected. They showed fine spirit in everything they undertook to do. As
an example of their fine work they outsold all the other classes in tickets for the
Spring Frolic Dance, which was for the purpose of helping pay for the sound
motion picture machine. An unusually large number of this group played on
varsity teams and the group was well represented in all of the Academy's activities.
VVe hope that they will return next year to keep up the good Work.

About the only opportunity they had to manifest their spirit was in their
drill and in this they did very well. All will agree that on the whole they are a
line launch of Plebes and that they have taken hold as well as could be expected.
They all took part in as many activities as they could be of help in, and in general
they showed a line attitude. VVe hope that each one of them will come back next
year and continue until they graduate.

Company, but this group of cadets from East Hall is striving to win hack
that title this year. Cadet Captain Tom Gately has instilled his company with
a spirit that will be hard to beat. Lieutenant Furmaniak claims that his first
platoon is a sure bet for Honor Platoon while Lieutenants Mohr and Kaplan are
whipping the second platoon into fine shape. Captain lflrner Vllilson came up
from the liower School to become Tactical Officer of "A" Company and is doing
a great job of it. lle is well liked by all the cadets and takes a friendly interest
in everything that they do. liast year HA" Company won the company com-
petition and repeated the feat again this year.

The Emblem Club
llli l'IMBl,l'1hl Cllfli of the Morgan Park Nlilitary Academy was lirst organ-
ized four years ago. Its membership consists exclusively of those cadets
who have made a major letter in either Football, Basketball, Baseball, or Track.
For a faculty adviser they are under the supervision of Captain Xlahon. They
elected Phillip Graver their president this year and under his leadership they are
a Well organized group. This year they took a trip to the Chicago Stadium to see
a hockey game of the Shamrocks and a good time was had by all.
The club also gave a skit during the Pow-Wow which proved a sensational hit.
The act was a beauty contest and the club pledges took the part of the bathing
beauties. Henry Swade Was the Winner and was awarded a bunch of carrots,
l'1achyear,tWo nights before school closes the pledges are initiated into this royal
and mysterious order. The initiation is very novel and each year it is a little
ditlerent although the basic principles are the same.
Ilerc arc the cadets who have to be'
out for practice every day. All of them
have a hard job to take care of and all of
them do their best. Their jobs are usually
to mark the attendance, take care of the
equipment for that particular sport, keep
score at the games and the hardest job
of all is to try and get back the uniforms
that have been issued to the players for
the duration of the sport. It would be
very hard for the teams to get along
without these conscientious workers. ' '-

The l932 Skirmisher
1931 Heavyweight Football
This year lyf. P. lXfl. A. has a record to be
proud of: no conference games lost. Captain
Fleming's hard work and long hours spent
in coaching was in no small part responsible
for the success of Captain Graver's team.
The fact that the conference title was not won
was due in part to a night game played with
Wayla.nd on Oct. 17. The Wlarriors had some
difiiculty in getting used to the lioodlights and
the "ghost', ball, and when they finally did
settle down to their stride, it was too late
CAPT. GRAVER to enable them to score on a strong VVayland
Michigan City Too Powerful
It was no disgrace to take even an I8-O beating from this team, which incident-
ally won the state championship. Michigan City's scores were made in the second,
third and fourth quarters. In the second, Pittsford flyl. CJ plunged six yards to
cross the lineg in the third, Fox intercepted a Morgan Park pass and raced fifty-live
yards to close the scoring. Hokin, Willis, Norton, lylorgan, and Graver played
sixty minutes of hard fought football for the Academy.
Lake Forest Too Big
VVith George iylorgan shining for the local boys, the hfaroon Vlfarriors lost to
Lake Forest on October 3. The final score was I3-O, both scores being made in
the last half. To make the first tally, Thompson snatched Pagenkopf's pass and
in addition, ran twenty yards. After failing to break through the Morgan Park
line for four straight downs, on the goal-line, Lake Forest blocked Graver's punt
and scored. Pagenkopf kicked the extra point.
Win First Conference Game
The IQ3I Conference season was started
right with a I2-o victory over Onarga. Little
"Georgie" hforgan and Captain "Phil,'
Graver scored six points each for the first
Morgan Park win of the year. The day was
as bad as could be feared for our squad of
track men. The heavy Onarga squad had
the advantage of the Weather, and indeed
held the Warriors scoreless for three periods
before Graver and Morgan could break loose.
Night Lights Too Bright .
The first game the Morgan Parkers played
under the bright lights turned out as a Whole,
unfavorably. The main noticeable effect of
the lights was to cause a difficulty in judging
A LL-STATE TACKLE HAAS

the descent of the ball. lN'hile there were some fumbles made, these were due
mostly to hard tackling, and not to the lights. Kridler, the Vliayland fullback,
who did their punting, and Grey caused Morgan Park some trouble.
Saint Albans Crushed
With everyone but Manager Froemke playing, St. Albans was crushed on
October 31, 34-o. This game was especially pleasing because it was played on
Dad's Day. The fellows evidently wished to show their Dads that they could
play the late Coach Rockne's game, and they proved their point. "Barney,'
Hokin, at center was the only one to play the whole game. The Saints held our
second-string starters scoreless during the first quarter, but in the second period
Phil Graver led his regulars to two touchdowns. In the third period, the varsity
also tallied twice. Graver kicked four extra points out of four tries, in the half
that he was in the game. The seconds, under Heinie Furmaniak scored once in
the closing period.
Elgin Ties Maroons
The heavies were very much disappointed when they failed to beat Elgin and
as a result, were forced to take second place in the conference. However, it was a
real game, and the team has nothing to apologize for.
In five successive first downs, including a
35-yard end run by Graver, the first touchdown
of the game was scored by hlorgan Park. Graver
kicked the point. In the second quarter, Elgin
evened the count with a touchdown by Coffman
and the extra point by Zuttermeister. Swade
again put the Vlfarriors in the lead in the second
quarter with his touchdown. Kozel missed the
extra point. The final count of the game was
made by Ryan of Elgin in the fourth period.
Probably the most interesting play of the
1.-URMAMAK game to Morgan Park observers occurred in the
The l932 Skirmisher
KIAROON WARRIORS IN IXCTION
second quarter, after Elgin had scored. George hfforgan received Elgin's kickoff.
He returned it I5 yards and was tackled by Coffman, who pushed George's face
into the ground so hard that he had to leave the game.
Another play which was interesting from the M. P. IX4. A. standpoint also
occurred on the kick-off. Graver kicked, and Psik broke through five Elgin players,
who were running interference, to get the runner.
It was some consolation to the team that on the next Saturday, Elgin was
beaten 45-O by the same team that beat us I3-O earlier in the year, Lake Forest.
Old Rivals Lose For Cause Of Charity
In a charity game at Ridge Park, November I2, Morgan Park came out on the
long end of a I2-o score. Captain Graver scored both touchdowns, one as a result
of a 24 yard run in the second quarter, and the other after a run around right end
in the last period. The longest run of the game was one of 35 yards by "Heinie"
Furmaniak. These two were the ones who advanced the ball, but it was Norton.
Slarna, and the rest of the line that opened up the holes.
Win All-State Honors
Some idea of the caliber of this yearfs team
is gained When one learns that Graver and Haas
were both named All-State. It is no wonder
to those who watched the team all season that
these two were picked as outstanding in their
positions over the rest of the state. Graver
was a consistent ground-gainer all through the
year and his right toe added point after point
to our score. It is really too bad that the team
he captained couldn't have taken the Mid-W'est
Conference championship, but it was not written
that way. Vivhile Uhffulew Haas' Work was not KQZEL
The I932 Skirmisher
noticed so easily as he played
in the line, yet he was always
able to open up a hole at
tackle for Graver, Kirn and
the rest to drive a truck
If it were needed, the fact
that George Morgan was
named All-State quarterback
on the second team would
add to the warriors prestige.
George was one of our most
colorful players, partly be-
cause he was so small. His
NELSON twisting and weaving added
many yards to our total.

1931 Lightweight Season
HE Lightweight season of I93I was successful.
They played a tough schedule of eight games
and came out on the long side of the score in six of
them. Captained by "Bob" Mann the team was very
light and shifty. The line was a hard hitting and fast
charging machine and the backfield was a combination
that was hard to beat. The squad had plenty of
material in every position so there was plenty of
competition to keep up the fight for places on the team.
The lightweights of IQ3I were an outfit to be well
C ' .M
MT MN proud of.
Lane Upset in Opener
The Lights opened their season with a victory against Lane Tech to the tune
of 7-0. It was by good luck that the Lights obtained their touchdown. Catch
blocked a punt and Habich fell on it across the line for the six points. Mozoleski,
at center for the first time, played a good passing game. Schofield intercepted a
pass and ran across the goal but it was called back.
In a field of mud the Lights sent down their second opponent to defeat by I3-O,
Arcus going over the chalk mark for both touchdowns. Blue Island played hard
but could not stand up against the terrific attack of the Lights. Captain Mann
calling the signals played a game that was sweet to witness. Although the ball
was heavy with water and mud, Dennis got off some nice punts. There were not
many fumbles on either team.
The Lights gained their third straight victory by downing Pullman Tech 6-0,
Arcus going over for the precious points. Dennis made a beautiful run but was
pushed off side after what seemed like a sure touchdown. The line was functioning
to their best ability and were continually pushing back
the Pullman men.
Bloom handed the Lights their first defeat in four
starts, to the score of 7-O. The Lights fought hard
but did not seem able to get clicking. They had a
couple of unlucky fumbles that might have changed
the reading of the score. Habich played a pretty
game at end and he sure did tackle 'em hard. The
game was mostly a punting duel between the two
In the fastest game of the year the Lights handed
Harrison Tech a 26-O trimming. Catch playing at I
fullback was a sight for sore eyes. Bob Arcus at left
half had the good fortune to go over for the first two Gm GATHLY

scores with Jack Catch right behind him with the '
third touchdown of the game. Eich got his hands on
a nice pass and scampered over the line for the fourth
and last tally of the game. The lights had Harrison
under their thumb the whole game and could advance
the ball almost at will.
Calumet Puts up Battle
Calumet was taken into camp to the tune of 6-O.
Calumet won last year by two points and the team
was out for blood. By the aid of the terrific ploughing CATCH SET FOR ACTION
of the line and the splendid interference by the back-
field, Arcus was able to go over for the only score of the game. Clemensen was
cracking the opponents wide open with that hard tackling and blocking of his,
and Schofield at fullback was fast and shifty.
On a sticky field, the Lights lost their second game to a big team from Ham-
mond by the score of I8-O. The Lights put up a brilliant but losing fight. But
they sure lived up to their name of "The Fighting Lights." Although greatly
outweighed they dug in tooth and nail, and every man was hitting just as hard as
he knew how. Weill never forget when Jack Catch came up from six feet of water
with his tooth missing. Morgan Park was penalized several times when they
might have had a chance to score. But Hammond's superior weight certainly
told on that wet field. It also seemed that the Park could not hang on to the
ball which was slippery.
Win Final Game
The Lights went out in a blaze of glory by licking Bowen 6-o. Bowen has
always been known as one of the toughest teams around here, but they couldn't
stop the "Fighting Lights." Arcus with a wonderfully functioning line in front
of him went over for the lone touchdown of the game. Every man was playing
to his utmost, with Catch doing most of the ball toting, and Gately playing like
a fiend at end. Bowen almost tied us when they were down on our one foot line,
but the wonderful spirit of the team fighting as only Morgan Park teams do, kept
them from crossing the line. The Lights were a team that any one could be proud
to say they played on.

NDICR the coaching of Captain Xyilsrn the "Little hlaroonsn went through
a fairly successful seascn. They started out the year with a little hard luck.
Roy Wilson had to have the misfortune of breaking his ankle in the first scrimmage
of the season. Le Yee was the senior member of the team and was one of the
outstanding players of the team. One of the littlest members of the team was
"jackie" Kirnbell, who made up in light what he lacked in size.
ln their hrst game of the season the Bantams won from Lake Forest by a tight
score of 7-6. Shay who was acting-captain for the game made the tally, while
Tanner drop-kicked for the extra point. Coach Wilson was well pleased with the
actions of the team, and said he had a real outfit in the making. After a hard
struggle the Bantams lost a hard fought game with Bloom I3-O. The little team
was completely outclassed and outweighed. They put up a real Morgan Park
battle to no avail.
ln their second encounter with Lake Forest the Bantams lost to the tune of
lj-7, Geneser made the lone touchdown for Morgan Park after making a brilliant
dash of twenty-five yards. The midgets were a little more outweighed than they
previously were and that made a slight dilference in the final score.
ln their fourth game of the season the Bantams won from Loyola IQ-O. The
team resorted to a superb aerial attack that the visitors could not overcome.
Tanner, playing a wonderful game at end did much toward paying the way to
touchdowns by snagging some passes out of the atmosphere

The I932 Skirmisher
VEN though the heavies beat every team in the
conference, they did not win the championship,
because they in turn were beaten by every team but
Wayland. The team was a great one this year, with
"Nevvy,' back at center, "Heinie" Furmaniak and
Johnny Pilkis at forwards, and Chuck Kozel and Stan
Kaplan guarding our end of the floor.
All but Pilkis had been out for the team before,
and all of these four won letters last year. But don't
think that because John was new and a sophomore
that he wasnit good. His specialty was follow up
CAPTAIN KM-LAN shots, and they did much to upset such teams as
St. Albans, Elgin, and Onarga. Then, when they
watched him too closely, Stan Kaplan, Kozel and Furmaniak started to sink their
long shots. One new man who looked like good material for next year's team was
Virgil Evans, the lanky boy who gets the ball on the tip off.
With a large crowd watching them, the heavies gave up a day of their vacation
to beat Blue Island 25-IQ. The game was a close one with the lead see-sawing
back and forth until the closing minutes when the VVarriors pulled ahead to win
by six points.
In the first tilt with Catholic Central High of Hammond we came out on the
long end of a 23-21 score, defeating a strong well balanced Hammond team. In our
second tilt with this team we again were victorious the score being 27-23. Kozel
led the scoring with eleven points. The Maroon five took Elgin for a ride in our
first encounter with them to the tune of 28-22. " Heiniel' Furmaniak led the scoring
with fifteen points. But in our next game with them we were on the short end of
a 22-29 score.
Onarga licked us in the first encounter by a 25-IQ score. The next game with
Onarga was very tight but we ca.ne out on top by a 31-30 score. The final point
was made in the second overtime period. The second overtime was made possible
by Furmaniak's field goal which tied the score for the second time. It was also his
shot that won the game for us. Q 3
The best team that has been seen on our floor for
many a day was Lake Forest and they handed us the 3
worst defeat of the season 36-17. Again we accepted
defeat from them on their own court. This time it 3 1 Q
was 37-225 Lake Forest had an exceptionally large 1 nsi W
team in size and number, and eight of them were ,'
enough to beat us. f

best that Elgin could do was six points
less than the Morgan Parker's total.
And the final score of the game was
28-22. "Heinie,' was by far the star of
the game with his seven field goals and
one penalty shot, against Elgin's best.
But Elgin gained revenge for the defeat
and this time they came out on the large
end of the score. It being 29-22. Zutter-
meister of Elgin was the star of the game
totaling fifteen points. The game was
exceedingly rough, twenty-three fouls
being called, and eighteen of them were
It seems as though every school has
its traditional rivals and we are no exception, ours being Northwestern. This
year as was the case in former years we won, the final score being 23-IO.
Sixteen points scored by Rutherford of Pullman prevented the Warriors from
having the feeling that the game was at any time in the bag. But Kozel and
Rosicky's tallies in the final frame gave the team a five point margin to add another
win to their string of victories.
A slow breaking offense that functioned well won a slow ball game for St.
Albans, to the small score of I9-I4. The Morgan Park team did not seem to be
able to ring up baskets when they had the ball in their possession. The heavies
gained revenge for this inglorious defeat, and doubled St. Albans score and added
three more points for good luck. The final score of this run-away-the opposite
of our first fray with them was 49-23. Kaplan in the second half, sunk six baskets
and two free throws, which added to his first half basket gave him a total of sixteen
FURMANIAK ON THE jon
Indiana Team Wins
One of the best basketball teams, Michigan City, in the state of Indiana took
the major portion of a 30-25 score in handing the
Maroons their second defeat in a row. The game
was one of the fastest seen on our fioor this year.
A slow Wayland team was defeated by Morgan
Park in the last but one game of the conference race.
The game was slow and uninteresting, the final score
The last game of the season ended with a one-sided
4 win over Luther Institute, the score being 44-I4.
The score at the end of the first stanza was I6-2, and
was an indication of the way the game ran.
After drawing a first round bye in the Mid-West
Prep Conference Invitation Tournament, the Academy
heavyweights lost the first game to Mooseheart 30-25,
which was no disgrace as they won the tournament.

The Lightweight Basketball
ITH only three regular men back
from last year, two guards and a
forward, Coach Mahon was faced with
the problem of finding a new center and
a forward who could blend in with the
lightweight brand of playing. Morgan,
Eich and Captain Konopasek were the
"ACH ANDLKMNNW The Lights first game with the
Hammond Catholic Central High School
was won by a scant two points. Iiich led the scoring with Morgan close behind,
and the whole team playing in perfect coordination.
In the game with Onarga, the Lights had little trouble, and won by a nice
margin of 28-IS. Our "Fighting Lightsn played a bang up game from beginning
to end, not letting down until the last whistle had blown.
Lights Have An OE Day
With the playing of the Lake Forest game it seemed that the team had an
off day. Although they kept up the fighting spirit they did not seem able to
click. They were taken down by a score of 24-IS. It seemed that the Lake Forest
team was under perfect control at all times.
The "Fighting Lights" added another win to their long string of victories,
when they swamped the St. Albans Lights on the Saints Hoor to the sweet tune
of 37-13. Morgan Park had a passing game that could not be broken up. And
they functioned the way a real Morgan Park team can.
In the second contest with Pullman Tech the Lights were forced to play hard
basketball with no funny play. But they emerged from
the contest on the large side of the score 21-17. The
Pullmanites played a hard fast game but could not if
penetrate the Lights tight defense enough to tally up if , H
scores enough to beat us. yg,.
In the most exciting game of the season the Lights
took a fast thriller from Michigan City by the extremely 1 I 3
tight score of 27-26. The Lights looked like they were ' is I I
beaten in the first quarter but came back in the next
three quarters to turn a much bigger team absolutely
on their heads. The Lights played all around them 5

The I932 Slrirmisher
LTHOUGH the 1931 Baseball team lost
the majority of its games, it has kept
up the old Morgan Park Spirit and showed
"the old fight". It is hard for a losing team
to keep fighting and never quit 'till the last
man is out, and never know when they are
beaten, but under this strain they worked
and kept up their spunk wonderfully well.
Towards the last of the season the team im-
proved greatly as you will notice if you com-
pare the scores of the first four games with
those of the last four. The outstanding
players of the 1931 season were Sinclair, Fischer, Nelson, Ribbentrop, and Fur-
maniak. This year we expect big things from this team with "I-Ieinie" Furmaniak
leading them, and Eich, Kaplan, Haas, Pilkis, and Heitmann as his assistants.
The game with Fenger was the opener, and as usual "Mare" Nelson gOt into
the limelight by playing a wonderful game in the field, and equally as well at bat.
Kaplan started as pitcher but was under a strain because of suffering from a sore
arm, but he did well considering the circumstances. This game ended up with
Fenger at the long end of a 19-9 score.
Worse luck the second game. We couldn't
get going. but again they couldn't get many
past "Nelly," Captain Sinclair showed the
corps what he was made of, by playing
a wonderful game. In this game the honors
went to Pullman, by holding us scoreless,
The fielding wasn't quite up to par in the
Blue Island game, but it was quite well done.
The infield was shifted a bit, and we hope to
see some fast playing from now on. Fischer
showed up exceptionally Well at bat. At the
close of the ninth inning Blue Island was
The main reason for the fall of the Warriors
at East Chicago, was that they couldn't hit,

ln this game there was quite a bit of Hpepperi'
showed in the teamfs spirit, and "Shiny" did a good
job pitching. The only ones to cross the plate for
Morgan Park were Nelson, Gilmore, and Leake, all
of these being tallied in the seventh inning. Final
score being Pullman 6, M. P. M. A. 3.
This week turned out to be a big week for us, we
had two games with Luther and we won one of them!
The first one turned out to be a real Uthrillern, but
we lost 7-6, but we beat them the second game, IO-Q.
Wie believe that four games in two weeks was too
much for the nine. VVe were beaten twice in one week,
we lost the first to liast Chicago II-5, while the other
one was dropped to Howe, I4-I2.

Again during the closest game of the year we ended up at the tail end. The
lone tally was given by Captain Sinclair, while Kaplan, Leake, Haas, and Ribben-
trop each had five hits. At the close of this exciting fracas the score was Bloom
3, M. P. M. A. I.
In the traditional battle of the Alumni, they bowed to us by a close score of
I7-16. The star for the cadets was "Bill', Iiich with three singles and a base on
balls in four times at bat. "Stan" Kaplan and "Arnie" Schwab did the pitching
for the cadets, while "Hopkie" Priess did the pitching for the Alumni.
The 1932 team has a marvelous outlook with
five letter men back and a host of former sub-
players. This year, we also have Herschel Brown,
a pitcher, who has great control and should
materially aid the team a great deal in having
a successful season.
The team also has "Hal" lN'lcHugh, and
"Ken', Nlower, a very able pair of catchers.
lVith Furmaniak and Kaplan batting better
than ever, the whole team batting on an average
better than last year, we believe that the season
will be one of the best in the history of Morgan
Park's baseball teams.
As this book goes to press, We find that the
nine has beaten Lake Forest 8-2. This is quite
a feat considering that they have licked us in
other major sports. Led by "Heinie" Furmaniak
the team defeated Blue Island at home by a

The IQ3I track team had a very successful
season. This team had the longest schedule of
the last few years, participating in eight meets.
Out of these they won four, placed second in a
triangular, and the conference meet, and lost two.
With five letter men back, a successful team was
formed. They being Danner, Elliot, Freeman,
Paulsen, and Rosicky. Freeman was the high
point man of the season with 53 points to his
credit. Rosicky was next with 50 points, and
FREEMAN GETS READY Danner got third place with 40 points.
The first meet was a triangular one with Blue Island and Kankakee. Morgan
Park took three firsts, being in the broad jump, Freeman won the hundred, and
Danner won the shot-put.
The U. of C. High School was the first to taste defeat at our hands. We took
eight out of twelve firsts. Some of the marks were lowered despite the fact that
weather conditions were very poor.
The third meet of the season was lost to Lake Forest. We were outclassed in
the running events, winning one out of seven. We made our points in the iield
events. Elliot took first in the 880, nosing out Sproul who was second. Paulsen
won the high jump.
Morgan Park's second and last defeat of the season was at the hands of Onarga,
who beat us by six points. Each team had seven firsts. The relay was won by
Morgan Park, the team consisting of Gentleman, Dennis,
Freeman and Watkins. Freeman and Danner each took
a Hrst and second. Morgan cleared the vault at ten feet.
Austin Outclassed, 77-26
Austin High was literally crushed by the track team.
We took ten out of twelve firsts. The track was very
slow and muddy. The Sproul-Elliot feud for supremacy
in the half mile was very evident during the race. On
the home stretch Sproul came from behind to nose out
Elliot by a foot.
The conference meet was the closest of the season for
us. From the beginning it was obvious that the battle
for supremacy was between Morgan Park and Wayland.
The two teams were neck and neck until the relay which
was the deciding factor of the meet. It was won by
Wayland. The first three men of both teams were neck
and neck but our anchor man had to run again the fastest
man at the meet, and he won for Wayland. Sproul won

of our cindermen by a large score. The half 5
mile was again the interesting event of the meet.
Sproul led the race till nearly the finish when
lilliot passed him up and beat him by a few
scant inches. Paulsen created quite a surprise
when he won the high hurdles, an event in which
he seldc vm competed.

Season Closed With Victory
The last meet of the season was with Loyola and was won by hlorgan Park.
lt did not seem that there would be a track meet at all, but it stopped raining
and the meet was held under averse weather conditions and a slow track. Two
very interesting happenings occurred during this meet. One was the breaking
of the school shot put record by Danner. The former record which was made by
Baker, '16, has stood for fifteen years. Elliot also gave us a surprise by winning
the mile and half mile, a feat that is seldom duplicated.

HIS is the main all-year round activity at the Academy. This year the team
is better than ever before as the result of their various meets show. Under
the coaching of Sergeant Nolan they have progressed more rapidly this year.
Many of those on the team won letters last year and with this as a backbone the
team progressed as it did under the able leadership of Captain Bob King.
Livery afternoon if you wander 11ear or in the range you will here the "pop"
of the guns as the various members of the team strive for perfection. Also with the
real shooting there is a great deal of "dry shooting". This exercise is for the
purpose of perfecting the position and lining of the sights. The team competed
in more matches than usual this year and came out on top in most of them. Some
of the matches were shoulder-to-shoulder matches, while others were telegraphic,
wherein each team flres on their own range.

fRliSTLING is under the super-
vision and coaching of Mr.
James Erickson and because he put
so much enthusiasm into his work it
soon became one ofthe popular winter
sports. He had a large turn out and
developed some good wrestlers. This
is hir. lirickson's first year as' coach
of the team but he did wonders with
his men. The team had two bouts
with the hlorgan Park high school
and lost them both, however there
was line sportsmanship shown and
the team gained much experience.
hir. lirickson is a student at the
Chicago Y. Nl. C. A. College and
there secures the knowledge he puts into practice in the way of demonstrating
various holds and Wrestling tricks. This activity was in it's prime during the
winter month' The team met in the basement of Alumni Hall and used the large
mat there. ith a little more practice next year, it is expected that the wrestling

team will be 5- :ang-up aggregation.
On the wrestling squad were Norton, Ickes, D. Pinkerton. l,aTourette, Groebe,
P. Pinkerton, W1 Brown, Wlagenseller, Bailen, Barrish, and F. Haas. Although
many of these are seniors, considerable interest was aroused which will bring out
many contestants next winter.
In addition to serving as wrestling instructor, hir. Erickson supervised the
liast Hall when Captain VVilson, tactical officer, was off duty. Mr. Kravig per-
formed similar duties for Captain Knautl in Hansen Hall.
ln addition to wrestling, there is boxing.
This also has proved to be a favorite sport with
the cadets during the winter. This team is also
under the able guidance of Coach James Erickson.
hlost of the boys that are out for wrestling are
out for boxing too, so it is quite evident that we
have a husky team. Although the team did
not have any meets this year, we are quite sure
that we would have come out on the long end

HIS year marks the inauguration of Captain Paul's Weight Lifting Class.
The main purpose of this course is to build up the body and make the cadet
strong and healthy. Many cadets participated in this activity during the winter
months as it helped to while away the hours during the storms. Captain Paul
furnishes charts for the cadets to make a record of their daily work, and from
time to time the records are published, and the boys with the biggest improvements
As the weather got warmer he brought the weights outside in front of Alumni
Hall. The sole purpose of this is to give the participants the full benefit of the
sunshine during their work-outs. Another advantage of being outside is that
they get the fresh pure air. This cannot be done in the basement. Many details
have been formed through the courtesy of Captain Paul to go down town and
see weight lifting contests. These have proven to be very popular with the cadets
and also very useful. To show the cadet corps how they have been working, at
the Second Annual Pow-VVow, the VVeight Lifters gave an exhibition which proved
to be very instructive.

contributions to school life were made by the Guardians, with perhaps the spirit
of the men themselves being the most valuable.

result. The first event that they participated in was the Christmas celebration

The next opportunity that they had was the minstrel show where they also
gave a fine exhibition.
They met every Tuesday night in the
Music Room of Alumni Hall, and those who
have heard them practice are surprised in the
interest which they show. They also gave a

done his job efficiently.

display and further it. Lyman, Craig, and Meadows who are members
of this club, did all the pen and ink sketches in this SKIRINTISHER.
Among the various media used by the members of the club are: oils,
water colors, pencil and pen.
The Bridge Club
HIS main purpose of this activity is to teach the student the rudi-
ments of this fascinating recreation. This year for the first time the
club chose a president to be at their head. The president is Joseph
Caruso. The faculty advisor of this group is Captain Albert G. Dodd,
he has shown the cadets many line points about the game which are both
interesting and useful.
The Pistol Club
HIS year marks the first year of the Pistol Club. The members of
this club all have their own .22 pistols and meet one night a week
when they have target practice. The club was started by Bob Schleicher
and under the tutelage of Sergeant Nolan they are progressing rapidly
and all those who take an interest in this diversion are welcome to join
the club. The marksmanship that is learned in this activity may come
in very handy in later life for handiness with a pistol, is also a helpful

THE BIG BOSS
CA Pr. M .x Yi-naw, l,7'lilll'1'lNll
Vaptain Mayhew, who is the principal of
the Lower School, has been at Morgan Park
fourteen years, thirteen of which he has
spent as principal. l-Ie knows his job well,
because he knows boys. He treats every
boy fairly and squarely and has a good word
for all. He has much patience, which he
has to use when some of the boys do some-
thing wrong. After the boys or boy has been
tried in Captain Mayhew's court and either
found guilty or not guilty he is given another
chance and a clean slate.
The entertainments that the Academy
gets is due to Captain Mayhew's hard work.
He gets many fine things for the Lower
School too and t.he boys enjoy them very
much. It was Captain Mayhew's suggestion
and idea that the Academy have a talkie
Many other things can be said of Captain
Mayhew but above all he stands out in his
fair and square attitude. Many fine boys
are sent out of the Lower School and it is
mostly due to Captain Mayhew's hard work
and skill. He has the patience of a saint
sometimes and because of that and of many
other things the boys respect and like
Uaptain Mayhew very much.
WONDERFUL SPRING CAMP
Every year the Lower School boys take
a trip to the Indiana State Dunes. Every
boy enjoys this trip because there is no form-
ality about it whatsoever.
Among the activities, there is a treasure
hunt. The treasure hunt is always very hard
and it usually takes from nine o'clock to
about three 'till the first group comes in.
Then comes the red and white war, which
is a lot of fun. Usually the reds have the
hill one year, and the whites have the hill
the following year. At a certain time the
war starts and keeps up for about an hour.
and then Captain Mayhew blows a whistle
to stop. The hands are then counted and
the side that has captured the most bands
wins the war, and usually there is a reward
for the winner.
ln years that have passed, Captain May-
hew has had Chief Whirling Thunder out to
camp, but this year there will not be any
entertainment at camp, but Captain Mayhew
will make up for it, by extending the vacation
one day longer.
The food at camp is always excellent, and
the boys always get Strawberry Shortcake
the last day. We will go to camp in flrey-
hound busses this year, and we will leave
a week later so that the exams will be over
by the time that we leave. The exact dates
are May 27, 28, 29.
The new men get initiated in the form of
getting thrown in the creek, and the ones
that don't get the creek get the paddling
Among the social activities comes Mrs.
Gotham's little get-togethers. Every so-
often she has small get-togethers for small
groups of bovs. The boys have a lot of fun.
They usually read magazines, popcorn,
listen to the radio, and play bridge, and all
in all the boys have a lot of fun.
The school year 1931-32 began its movie
career using the old silent machine. The first
pict.ure was 'tTrees to Tribune." This was
followed by educational features of the silent
variety. In November, came Dad's Day and
with it the contribution of this group of
"good fellows" of about 35400 for a sound
motion picture machine. After several
demonstrations an International Acme pro-
jector and sound outfit was purchased and
the latter part of the season saw the cadets
enjoying the finest talkie productions.

BIG YEAR IN DRAMATICS
The Dramatic Club was organized under
the direction of Mrs. McClure. They have
had two plays and are contemplating a third.
The first was named t'VVhy the Chimes
Rang," and was very successful. The gist
of the story was:
Holger and Steen, two little boys, had
planned to go to the Christmas Services at
the great Cathedral, but their g1'andmother
became ill and their mother has to go to her,
which meant that the two boys had to stay
home. They are sulking around the house
when their Uncle walks in and says that he
is going to take them to the services. They
are getting ready to go when a old lady creeps
in and falls on the floor. They discover
that she is ill from exhaustion and hunger.
Steen, Bertel, and the uncle want to go,
but Holger wants to stay and take care of
the old lady. Holger gives Steen two pennies
to give to the Christ Child at the Cathedral,
and stays at home with the woman, while
the others went to the services. Holger falls
asleep and dreams that Steen gave his pennies,
and the chimes, that would only ring when
a gift of love was placed on the altar rang.
He wakes up and finds the old woman gone.

BIG MILITARY YEAR
This year the Lower School Military l'nit
consisted of one company under the leader-
ship of Captain Nufer. The company was
divided into two boarding student platoons
and one day student platoon. The first
platoon was under the leadership of 1st
Lieutenant Pagano, the second under the
direction of 2nd Lieutenant Schoenhrod and
the third under the leadership of 2nd Lieut-
enant Bef-kwith. The non-commissioned
officers ably assisted those in charge.
Captain Muhl, the tactical officer, has
worked very hard trying to organize a smooth
unit. He has received the cooperation of

The I932 Skirmisher
1 9 3 1
May 10-We paraded last Sunday in full dress white Cgroansj, with the "B"
Company, first platoon showing their loyalty by forming a perfect " B ". Professor
Reaves suggests a new curriculum plan, and if that is to contain a new menu we
are with him. Sproul won the typing record, and now has all the typing to do
for the ACADEMY NEWS, which all goes to prove that the price of fame is-!
The team lost another ball game, but that isnlt news. This is Mother's Day-
mud six inches deep, and the parade called off, but speeches were held in the gym-
mamma's damp, but proud.
May 17-The sophomore class began work on their new pewee golf course-
and I suppose the next catalogue will declare a "nine hole golf course is only
another of the distinguishing features of this singularly well equipped school"-
oh hum! that's life. The freshman class organized for the first time in the school's
history-pretty big, those freshmen thought-that is until Friday. After the
last hasty preparations, the corps stood up under the strain of Government Inspec-
tion, its rigors unparralleled-but then all things, even Government Inspection,
must come to an end, and then-the glorious week-end!
May 24--Ah-at last some variety-the baseball team actually defeated Luther
High by the overwhelming score of 10-9! But that isn't all Cthis must be the week
of weeksj Barrash actually refused his usual third helping at Mess. It surely must
take a great love to sustain him! Open House Week-End was held-a big success,
even if fourteen guests did faint at the Hring of the three inch gun Cincidentally
Sergeant Nolan almost fainted himself when he found out it could firej and Zimmer-
man refused to fire in the sham battle claiming he couldn't see the whites of Lasser's
eyes, because they were bloodshot, and Cleveland's tent was pitched so nicely
that he simply couldn't resist sleeping in it. -
May 31-Honor School! We did it again, and we'll do it some more. The
Band played before the Executive Club of Chicago at the Sherman Hotel, and
Brekke came near fallingthrough his big drum. He was
so shaken by the incident that his egg missed a certain
junior on his way to the Junior-Senior Dinner Dance,
and speaking of dances that was a wow! KNO, Ilm not
asking youll The Decoration Day Parade through ' 1
the loop was called off but Morgan Park once more fi-, 3
crashed through, leading the column in a parade all by 'Q 1'
themselves, the rain supplying quite a patter of ap- 1 -,,
plause Know is that satire?j 4-2 7: K 12.31
June 6-The seniors at last managed to slip 'U' if'
through their final exams with much flipping
of coins, and all thoughts now turning to the
decoration of the gym for the last and most
elaborate of hops, the renowned Senior Prom. For P?: I
the first time in quite a while the tennis team lost a 4' V I
match, they were defeated by Lake Forest 7-0, but A ij! JW,
that is somewhat ameliorated fouchb by our triumph
over Loyola in track 58-37. Alumni Day was quitex Gio-o
The I932 Skirmisher
a success in spite of the rain, for we took our esteemed forerunners for a ride,
both in baseball and golf.
June 11-Guardians were nominated Sunday, and Baccalaureate service gives
the evening to Dr. H. P. Rall, at the Methodist Church, then the final Exams!
Crepe was hung on Blake Hall, and everyone talked and even thought
in whispers. Tuesday the letters were awarded in Basketball, Baseball,
Track, Rifle Team, Tennis, Golf and finally the Guardians were chosen.
"AH Company of course won the competition Wednesday morning, and later
a parade was given for the seniors. In the evening the glorious Senior Prom
was held, and it is a wonder how many freshmen seemed to wander
into their full dress blouses backwards, task Zimmerman why he didn't
show till reveillel. Graduation was held in the Congregational Church, and school
was dismissed after the flag pole formation to give farewell to the seniors-Well,
good bye old book'sl
September 20-Well, this is the 20th, and only 269 more school days this year-
easy, what? Now I don't want to call anyone simple, but the freshmen want their
rifles! Berries for lunch C?J it looks like the same old school, but these chefs do
fall into such habits. But speaking of berries, Willie Mohr formally announced
that Dot is looking as well as ever, and Jane is to grace more than one dance.
COh, by the way, he speaks French now-if you don't believe it, ask him, he'll
pipe up parlez vous Frenchj Sales are poor this year-depression, I guess-I
only made a dollar and ten cents on pep meeting tickets, and I actually heard there
wasn't a key sold for the flag pole! There's taps-that's all, hit the ball!
September 27-ACADEMY NEWS comes out! CNow I'll be editor, wait and
see,flattery has its advantagesj. Captain Hirschy spoke on the character and inven-
tions of the late Thomas Edison, and Wednesday night lights were put out for
one minute in honor of that great benefactor. I did more serious thinking on the
benent of giving to mankind in that one minute than I probably have done in all
my life before. Thursday the schedule was changed to give the football players
the advantage of additional daylight, but it certainly does seem queer to play
football after lunch and then go to the sixth period classes just before Mess III.
October 4-The varsity team lost their first game Saturday to Michigan City
High School, but then it isn't a conference game, and a
lot of experience was gained. Much talkis ofthe Harvest
jp Moon dance, which is to be held in the gym, decorated
in true harvesting fashion. The costumes are .to
-awww-pf 4 consist of elaborate overalls, bordered daintily with
fl Western Avenue mud, and old bandanas or sun
' 1 :1 5 hats Extra !-Gladstone makes startling announcement
in Captain .Gray's class that he can't wake up-he
wasn't sleeping. First .parade was held, with prom-
,Iwi ises of glorious repetition. CAll together now-a

i- Q X celebrated by wearing his new boots, and im-
I, agine his surprise when they wouldn't come
, off, and he had to sleep in them.
4 October 17-Bob Zechrnan announced his
intention of training, before sending in his
application for West Point, "If only I could
get more dessert, Earle Leiderman wouldnft
have a thing on me." The Dramatic Club
put on aplay called 'fThe Bishopls Candle-
sticks," but as no candlesticks were available
they used glass saltcellers from the Mess Hall,
but aside from that everything went along
beautifully. Yeidel acted as sergeant of
Gendarmes, and Iiopek, whom he ordered
around in Pittsboig French, acted as just Gendarme. Of course the names of the
starring roles are of too great consequence to be mentioned in this mere doing,
but we may hint that Jack Samuels would make a good wife to some willing bishop.
October 24-The corps is beginning to think seriously of the self sacri-
ficing, unflinching life of aveterinarian, since listening to a soul-stirring lecture
on the frightful consequences when the streptoccoci mix it up with the onoma-
topea Cwell, it sounded some thing like thatj and already Samuels knows what
to do for a baby with the colic-call a doctor. Pomarane seems to be having
trouble with the new schedule, he almost despaired when after the recreation
period he washed- his thumb preparatory to his usual custom of sticking it in
the soup bowls, only to find he had two periods to go and would have to wash
October 31-Dad's Day, and as usual Calvert had to break into the
pictures with his white pants and patent leather hair, while the Dad's crack
squad gave us many useful pointers for government inspection. Brekke
had his big moment Q40 seconds to be exactl ,fs7x,,!
smearing the St. Alban's heavies, in fact he 342575
persuaded a few opposing stalwarts to take ' f
up a game not quite so rough. The seniors -1 lf
spent a delightful week catching missiles of
affection in the form of over ripe tomatoes
proffered by the village swains, unable to
resist the invitation of the open windows of Y
Blake Hall. Dear old Halloween. 1
November 8-Many an awed maiden has E
been consumed with curiosity as to the at ffzfbm fa
thoughts of those 'fmanly cadets as they
stand so stern and silent in those WONderful la ,
dress uniforms. " It may be violating a sacred ff
trust, but here they are for aren'tD: There's

November 22-Hold your seats, boys-The academy has gone native.
The self sacrificing cadets nobly gave up the pleasing prospect of evening study
hall, Cwhich was considered by most the one redeeming feature of this barren
existencej to view the thrilling spectacle of Chief Whirling Thunder exhort-
ing the great spirit for fire-water, Farm Relief, freedom for Ireland, and
abolishment of Reveille. Scholler took to wearing a loin cloth, Mann delighted
the ears of the kaydet corpse by singing the Indian Love Song, and a calamity
was narrowly averted, when Schleicher attempted to try his new pistol on
Chief One Grunt Caruso.
December 6-Big days-The Guv'nor has visited our humble domain.
Rudd everlastingly endeared himself to the cadet corps by dropping his rifle
during the reception parade-was his face cerise? Cleveland in his own cute
Way gave his conception of a train announcer at home, calling"Present Armsi'
and "Inspection Armsn until exhausted and the
corps turned blue from cold. Bennett seemed a ""
trifle anxious while receiving his commissiong and 1 i
grabbed rather naughtily, while the Guvlnor wise- u A
cracked, but Schofield took the gold plated tomato i '
juice cocktail when he tapped the Chief-Exec on , ,A
the shoulder with a here-I-am-air for his commission. 'Qigldinfff

December 13-Schleicher delighted the second Lg,

January 10-When bigger and better
are made Henry will make them. Swade
copped the embossed bunch of carrots
upon a personal appearance in an evening
gown of calico. Gladstone frightened the
women into hysterics when he said "boon
at them in Indian. Zimmerman took a
candle and when apprehended by Captain
Kling in his haste to find a place of con-
cealment popped It in his mouth where
he found plenty of room Oh Zimmie

5 ' r 'A January 17-The House Party was
was had by all. If you don't believe your scribe, just ask Tom Gately or " Pete"
Scholler. Elgin Academy invaded our gym and were thoroughly trounced 28-22.
Wow! Some Team. Sure looks like a winner. Administration Day went over
with a bang-Catch, Superintendent: Gately, Asst. Superintendent. Catch is a
dead ringer for Col. Abells. Listen to Eich trying to tell us why he didn't sink that
last basket in the Hammond game. That boy's name should be CAlibiJ Eich.
January 24-Great talent to be at Mid-Winter Frolic. Rumors are that
the Right Honorable Orphan Annie and Sophie Tucker are to appear at the
gathering. The world, or rather the Morgan Park Bank came to an end last
Monday which put Captain Wilson in a precarious position by having exactly
37 cents more than yours truly has. Rifle team fired against Evanston High
and lost by the narrow margin of two points, 847-845. Tough luck. Better
luck next time. The heavies were beaten by Onarga 25-10.
January 31-Wrong again-its not a wake, even though the corps appears
to be morosely waiting for the hearse-its exams! Exams! They got us again.
In fact even Joffee was too tired too jeer when one of the machines in the
Mid-Winter Frolic gave its last feeble breath Cdo they breathel?-and around
12:30 Kozel's dancing began to look rather shopworn. Oberman became
slightly maudlin at the sight of Fin D'Orsay, and could be heard sighin'
"Ain't Love Grand." Wiersema was absolutely disgusted with the
orchestra-"no oompah-horn". However nothin', not even the zero weather
could cool Gately's ardor as he gazed into her eyes.
February 7-It seems that the ACADEMY NEWS stunt about a beauty
contest is doomed to go the way of the fated Marching Song contest-not a ballot
returned-except Eich electing Eich. Too much advertised Military Night must
have wound up as a tie seeing that it didn't come off and Captain Wilson again
postponed the Dramatic Club Play-will that sheet ever find anything to write
about-what they need is real home talent like yours truly. The Guardians are
already functioning, already these masters of destiny have organized into a stormy
pulsating, strong-blooded, irresistable group-very evident when they petitioned
for more and better Uchilel' they got it, too-our heroes.
February 14-Captain Taylor scores again !-heifrightened a detail away from
a perfectly good play by donning his best ghost story air and solemnly announcing
that "Mourning Becomes Electra, " is grim stark tragedy! Great rejoicing when
The l932 Skirmisher
"Dick" Calvert sends word that he has been convalescing in the infirmary, but
will be in condition for the dance Saturday Night. Catch is back in school-for
the purpose of keeping numerous social engagements, and there is much conjecture
as to why "Heinie'l Furmaniak is always seen heading for 99th and Prospect-
therels no barbecue on that corner. Van Order announced in a especially arranged
interview, that he's not superstitious-he's willing to comb his hair-but just
never does manage to get around to it.
February 21-"A" Company is leading in the ticket sales for the Minstrel
Show, but of much more importance socially is the search for the latest in a free-
for-all stunt night. By the way, have you ever seen Harold Barrash in a chemise
and a lace handkerchief? Lee Gladstone gave his impression of Timelock Foames
in that forty alarm thriller H Maddened by Mystery " or " Nero, My Dog has Fleas."
Lyman and Meadows appeared in the most form-fitting underwear Cheavyj and
read the "Morgan Park Marines," while Willie Mohr was quite a barker, even
better than Moreover.
February 28-Though space is scarce, Lee Gladstone shall be honored by
having his short-story, which has in it the four essentials Cbrevity, reference to
religion, some association to nobility or royalty, and an illustration of modestyj
printed verbatim: "My gawd, " said the Countess, "take your hand off my knee!"
Vocational Week was exceedingly helpful, especially to the seniors, who join the
bread-lines in June. At least we're getting some class to our house-parties. Satur-
day we were entertained by Bing Crosby, Marjorie King, Ben Bernie, Clyde
McCoy, and "Redl' Craig!-don't scoff-a radio helped, only we couldn't turn
Craig off-we had to put him out!
March 6-If ever in doubt about anything ask Cadet Byfield fwho is, of
course a gentlemanj. He is of vast knowledge-and can describe almost any-
thing-especially well the sensation while alighting on alarge, mushy cake be-
longing to a small but exceedingly voluable woman,while rounding a curve on the
UL". A touch of beauty was added to our already ornate Alumni Hall by the
hanging of four large oil paintings. The mess hall can now be referred to as
"Beauty and the Bears. H If anyone finds a red sash, eleven feet long and an-
swering to the name of "Alexander" will he kindly return it to Jim Kent.
March 13-The night Club Dance was a big success, especially so since
Calvert was there. CHonestly, one couldn't hear the orchestra because of the
girls hearts pounding as he entered-no, made an I 0
entrancej. "Beaver" Albert certainly had stage 8
fright during the performance-he was shaking so he ,
couldn't do that grass skirt justice. "Chuck" Vrhel ' ,,,,,
won this weeks handsomely upholstered celluloid ash
tray for his answer as to what the Sergeant of the '21 '11 i n
37rnm. gun carries-he immediately replied "A pair of N ,
opera glasses." When Meadows cranked the Austin L':? ' ,Q X
Saturday night it ran up his sleeve and tickled him to 1 - ' - ' L., 'fr
death. CDon't blame me for that-its in the ACA- N- -Uliillhj'
DEMY NEWSJ. When Gladstone tells you he was L '
there with his Crosley, when the Lindbergh baby was ,,"e,.- j
kidnapped, don't believe him- he hasn't even got a l lx ' dll
Crosley. I - R l
March 20-The Minstrel show is a great success, jf
especially with Bruce Sells raptly telling us with pal- ' g li
pitating palette about "Lil' 'Liza Jane," and Vrhel f I f

Cleveland in the stress of his emotions forgot even that he was a day student, 3
really good performance, while Lee Gladstone by mere vocal power chased the
"Lonely River" river quite far away from his door. Vacation soon.
April 3-Back from Spring vacation-on the last lap at last. iThe menace of
final exams is somewhat dulled by the treacherous approach of Government
Inspection, but even that is almost forgotten in the dusty routine of drill, supple-
mented by an hour or more of sand papering helmets, slings, cleaning, polishing,
and the sacred and sweet policy of brushing packs. The school is forced to over-
draw the budgets since Caruso and La Tourette simply can't get into the habit
of eating breakfast after drilling with rifles, and as a consequence eat full dinners
April 17-Physics students visited Western Union and many saw their life
ambitions, roller-skating messengers, and later the class went to Western to test
the speed of sound with rifies and stop-watches. Vogl was elected to shoot Cand
also to cleanj the rifle, and so in the interests of science he put it to his shoulder
and fired. Now he is trying to tell us he's suffering from shell-shock. The school
has announced a summer school this year and it's to be cold. Now Calvert will
have to flunk Cthat is as an added incentivej so that he can keep the co-eds from
not missing the true Morgan Park Spirit. Imagine-a perfectly sane school,
without any formations, drill periods, or even melodious bugle calls.
April 24-Well, the Officers Dance went over with a bang, it must have, con-
sidering the number of machine guns, 37mm. guns, and even the one pounder
present. Did you ever see the expression on Eich's face, after writing one hour
on the permit, when told "her mother wouldn't let her come." Catch and
Gately were having a duel with their sabres, held
above the couples in the grand march-much to the .
distress of the couples-though Catch's sabre could '0 0
hardly reach Gately's. "Heinie" Furmaniak helped Y 1
the party by deserting Edith to eat more ice cream V' -X
than was gentlemanly, and Paul Psik delighted us tm I i'
by doing the Urumba upside-down." . A ' l

May 1-The first full dress white parade of the t , if

by Colonel Anderson tomorrow puts aside all thoughts V , 4 "" ' " -
