Scenes that students will long re-
member when they are no longer at
North Side are pictured above. In the
picture to the upper left is the majestic
entrance to our beautiful building
through which our students come and
go-and ever return to in memory for,
just as the words are engraved upon the
top of the building, so are they upon
the mind and heart of the boy and girl
who have had happy and successful
NORTH SIDE HIGH SCHOOL-it is a pile
of brick and mortar, dead floors, windows, rails, but
it houses the ever-living souls of girlhood and boy-
hood that are the essence of tomortow's America.
Here lies the foundation for the ideals and leaders
of the future, for, through the guidance of the teach-
er and the school, each generation prepares itself to
accept forthcoming responsibilities intelligently and

uOnly a lot of boys and girls? . . . Only
a public school?', Maybe that is what North
Side is to some people but not to Mr. Milton
H. Northrop. Mr. Northrop plays the great
role of "Pop" to his both docile and unruly
brood here in the halls of our happy home.
Though his task is gigantic and helping stu-
dents solve their many problems not an easy
one, he is always ready to greet one with a
Mr. Northropls office is located at the head
of the main entrance and this is symbolic of his
readiness to receive one and all and to give aid
where it is needed.
Mr. Northrop has been establishing the
policies of the school and administering to its
multiple needs since North Side was founded
in 1927. During these years of service to
America's youth, Mr. Northrop has made an
intangible contribution to our country for his
sound philosophy and ideals have helped many
"The future belongs to the youth of today. High
school offers to students a fine training in almost
any field in which they are interested but building
a life and character result from daily gains in that
direction. Education is the result of all of those in-
fluences, forces, and achievements that attend one
and by the responsibilities we seek and share in use-
"I have the firm belief that tomorrow will be
a good day. America has always risen to great heights
from despair, deprivation, war, and hardship. Our
greatest America is just ahead", said Mr. Merle
Abbett in his article published in The Northerner.
Mr. Abbett has tried to secure and to insure this
future for us for he has supplied excellent schools
and instructors and he has also given of himself in
order to promote the success of the battle in which
we are now engaged by acting as chairman of the
prog. for the sale of stamps and bonds in Allen
"To boyhood, girlhood look, the teacher and the
school". Realizing that the world today more than ever
does look to the school and to America's youth, Miss Vic-
toria Gross offers to each student guidance in right living
and in preparing well for the vocational future.
In fulfilling her duties as dean, Miss Gross has super-
vision of club activities, assemblies, and class functions.
Hers is a philosophy of accepting responsibility, of doing a
task well, and of rendering service to others. In carrying
out these precepts, as well as teaching them to others, she
proves herself a utrue Redskinf'
As the financial and moral supporter of North Side, the Parent-Teacher Association is always
ready to cooperate in promoting the general welfare of the student body. Some of the members ora
ganized a study group for the purpose of discussing and solving any current problems that may
arise from youth so that they, the parents and teachers, may be better qualified to help in the char-
acter molding of tomorrowts adul'
The organization's most cmtfanding enterprise this year was the promoting of a fluorescent
lighting system for the school. After careful analytical investigation of the present lighting facili-
ties, the P-T. A. petitioned the School Board for improvement and their request was readily granted.
The new system will be installed this summer.
This group has also given staunch support to the youth recreation centers which have been es-
tablished in Fort Wayne during the war-time emergency.
Officers of the P-T. A. as shown below, left to right, are: Mrs. H. D. Macbeth, treasurer, Mrs. D. M.
Niles, firsr vice-presidentg Mrs. G. M. Irmscher, presidentg and Mrs. Glenn Hopper, secretary. Mr. Howard
Michaud, second vice-president, was absent when picture was taken.

One of America's great educators said that we learn by doing.
If this is true, North Side is providing future citizens early ex-
perience in democratic government, for the Student Council par-
ticipates in the management of school affairs.
Members of the council consist of home room representatives
who are elected by popular ballot and of club representatives. This
governmental body elects by ballot its own officers and they play
an important role in the government of the student body, in the
formation of policy, and in attitudes adopted toward any issue that
may arise. This is done through radio broadcasts and through
Officers who led the council this year were, as shown in the
picture to the left, Frank Glasa, president, and Jack Schick, vice-
president. Seated are Miss Victoria Gross, dean, Eleanor Evans,
secretary, and Mr. Milton H. Northrop, principal.
Desiring to make North Side a grand school to attend and endeavoring to improve its ap
pearance, the Student Council has served the school splendidly this year It not only provided a
contact between the students and the faculty and gave the former a means of participating in
the school's government, but it also sponsored some of our most gala events
jolly "Get-Acquainted Day,', November 3, highlighted the fall calendar and Courtesy Week
one of North Side's best, pepped up March with its merry theme Courtesy Can Be Fun
The Memorial Day Assembly and Junior High Day brought the years sparkling activity to
a highly successful close.

Mr. Glen Gordy, who died November 5,
1944, had served as a teacher of mathe-
matics at North Side High School since the
school was founded in 1927. Mr. Gordy was
always ready to give a word of advice and
encouragement, and he is remembered for
that as well as for his dry and somewhat
Mr. Gordy, who had served in the last
World War, was a firm believer in democ-
racy and he knew that its future depended
upon education and training. Had he lived
he would have been a staunch advocate of
compulsory military training, for he was al-
ways saying that the Army was a sure cure
The monument that Mr. Gordy left be-
hind him is an intangible one that is alive
in the minds and the spirits of those stu-
dents who knew him well. Though he is
now of the past, he will go into the future
in the memories and characters of those he
trained and influenced.

Tomorrow's success lies within the youth of
today, and with this in mind the members of the
class of 1945 are now setting forth to find and
accept responsibilities in the great world that lies
before us like a huge book full of wonders and
experiences that are as yet unknown' to us.
We are about to prove the worth of David
Grayson's words when he said that everyone has
a place in the world and no matter how insignifi-
cant his job, if he does it to the best of his
ability he will be able to take his place in helping
to shape the destiny of the world.
Wally Martin and Bob Anspach, because they
died during their senior year, have been denied
the privilege of accompanying us on our adven-
turous journey down life's road as we go out to
seek our fortunes in commerce, education, govern-
ment, or science.
Miss Elizabeth Little and Mr. Everett Pen-
nington, our advisers, and Jessie Ormerod, Dick
Vachon, Bob Stavenik, and Lloyd Vogel, our offi-
cers, deserve vast amounts of credit for leading
us so well through our last, most wonderful year
here at North Side.
"Pathway to the Stars" was the appropriate
theme for our senior banquet which was held at
the Trinity English Lutheran Church on january
Guides of the '45
class are, seated, Jessie
Miss Elizabeth Little
and Mr. Everett Pen-
nington, advisers, and
Dick Vachon, vice-
president. Standing are
Bob Stavenik, and the
chairman of the social
calendar, Lloyd Vogel.
17. Bob Northrop served as toastmaster for the
occasion, Dick Vachon and Bo-b Stavenik read
their hilarious class prophecy, and Milton Brooks,
with Ruth Mertz as his accompanist, sang several
selections. Speakers for the evening were Miss
Mabel Greenwalt, Miss Loraine Foster, Jessie Or-
merod, and Don Ropa.
Our delightful senior play, "Ever Since Eve"
provided an evening of riotous entertainment for a
fully-packed house on February 17. The sparkling
cast, under the direction of Miss Margery Suter,
included Vic McGuire, Rena Miller, joe Carken-
ord, Vergie Lewis, Flo Ann Brown, David Maish,
Peggy Watt, Roger Moore, Thaine Ford, Nancy
Haypner, Gene Dennis, Bob Northrop, and Wayne
At the Senior Assembly the class will was read
and the class presented an oil painting of Mr.
Northrop to the school.
Our most outstanding social event was the
Commencement Dance, which was held the eve-
ning of june 2 in the school gymnasium. The
baccalaureate sermon was given on Sunday, june
3, and commencement exercises followed on june
5, as we closed the doors forever on our high
school days which are now but glowing memories
that will be with us always, wherever we may go.

By ROBERT M. NORTHROP, Editor
The 1945 Legend is a record of some thirteen hundred of America's
youth-a record of their achievements, in the classroom and on the athletic
field, of their work and their ambitions, of their every-day lives.
They know that they stand on the threshold of a new era, one more glori-
ous than the Golden Age of Greece, more brilliant than the saga of the opening
of the West, if they will only make it so. How
great are the possibilities-in politics, in sci-
ence, in art and literature, in man's con-
cept of God and his relations with God.
By virtue of that mysterious some-
thing that is youth, they will
The staff which produced
this yearbook typifies the
spirit of youth. In a
year of war, and of
shortages in man-
power and in materi-
als, the members of the
staff increased their ef-
forts. They worked evenings
and during spring vacation, and
they learned that, as a result of
their ordering early, the last allot-
ment of red leather in the United States
was to be used on The Legend. Over
twelve hundred and fifty subscriptions were
amassed, and the staff sent its book to press a
month earlier than is customary in peacetime
years. This is the spirit that will "lick the world" tomorrow.
But youth, as all else, does not seem to last. The world is full of broken,
disappointed, disillusioned people, with nothing of youth in them. It is my
hope that from these pages something of the spirit of youth may spread to all
of this generation and of the next and of the next. That is the purpose of the
1945 Legend-that youth may truly live forever.

Tuesday afternoon usually has its great lens
focused upon the photofiends among us as they
candidly stalk their prey in the halls. Along about
ten years from now these geniuses of the camera
will undoubtedly be well situated in the great
world of photography if they keep on snapping
their shutters with the same photomagnificent re-
sults that they now have.
Camera Clubbers are always on their best be-
havior, for they are in constant danger of ex-
posure to the double lens of Miss Marian Bash,
adviser. Miss Bash, who has definitely proven
herself to be a whiz at photography, really gets a
big kick out of her amateurs' antics.
All is not play for them, however, and the en-
tire school is indebted to them for the educational
movies which are shown in the classrooms.
The Camera Club also sponsors two movie sen-
sations a year. This year they featured "The Count
of Monte Cristo" and "How Green Was My

In spring, summer, and fall members of Na-
ture Club haunt the great out-of-doors, for theirs
is a never-ending search for something new and
different in the way of flowers, birds, or trees.
They spend hours roaming through parks or on
the river bank and hiking in the country.
Mother Nature with her fascinating mysteries
can keep no secret from these fellows, nor does
she try. Her myriad wonders are for the world to
see and the pleasures and delightful hours spent
close to her are for the world to share. So taking
full advantage of her priceless offers nature-
lovers gain a thorough appreciation of life's
beauty and prepare themselves to live cleaner, bet-
ter, happier lives as they store up their rich har-
vests of knowledge and understanding.
Miss Vesta Thompson and Mr. Howard
Michaud, being themselves ardent devotees of na-
ture, are always on hand 'to answer questions and
to explain new things to their young proteges as
well as to delve deeper into the ways of nature.

and sisters-it's the Booster Club!
This organization of organizations is under
the very capable leadership of Mr. Noel Whittern.
With the mighty mentor at the wheel, the club
sells cokes, candy bars, ice cream, popcorn and all
the things that go to make a good time for all.
This year the club' had a membership roster
of one hundred and eighty-eight members, the
largest in the history of the school. The members

Junior Forensic League, one of the newer or-
ganizations at North Side, is for members of the
speech department who are just beginning their
career in speech work. Its activities have broadened
each year until today it stands as one of the most
prominent groups on the roster.
Those elected to guide the organization for
the second semester were: Steve Ayers, president,
Jack Fishering, vice-president, Mary Ann Helmke,
secretaryatreasurerg Ed Geller, publicity chairman,
and Barbara Jo Yost, social chairman.
JFL always produces a fine crop of orators
and this year was no exception. In addition to
debating, the principal fall activity of the mem-
bers is the Freshman-Sophomore Extemporaneous
Contest. Barbara jo Yost captured the first place,
Leona Alexander took second place, and Karl
Bradley emerged with a third to his credit.
The semi-monthly programs have consisted of
speeches, declamations, and debates under the di-
rection of Miss Irene Miller, adviser.
Most of the ,IFL members later join the Na-
tional Forensic League which may have its
Ciceros-but even they should be on their toes
when a former JFL member starts to speak.

Everyone is exposed to speaking at one time or
another. After all, what of our organism is more
used than our orifice? Words can be potent wea-
pons, and National Forensic League teaches the
art of usage, of logic, and of analysis of the
words of others. It also stresses scholarship.
N. F. L. is the place where all good J. F. L.
members should land when they become juniors.
Everyone in the club is supposed to enter at least
one-inter-school contest and one school contest.
The winners of the Extemp Contest this year
were Don Ropa, senior, Adair Cummings, junior,
Noah Liff and Hannah Frankenstein, who tied
for sophomore contest, and Barbara jo Yost, who
won the freshman contest.
Other contests that North Side participated in
this year were the invitational meet at South Side,
the State N. F. L. meet, and the Legion Contest.
Officers for the last year were Vergie Lewis,
president, Walt Helmke, vice-president, Flo Ann
Brown, secretary, Clarence Kopp, treasurer, though
Bob Northrop, point recorder, became treasurer
when he left for college, Marge Winner, historian,
and Barbara Schlatter, publicity.
To the hard-working officers goes much
credit for the success of the National Forensic

bang! The very force of the terrific explosion
sent North Side hurtling over the top of its 3700
goal in the March National Red Cross Drive to
set a record for the entire school city! Indeed,
every Red Cross benefit this year was started-
and finished-with a bang.
Remember the magnificent results of the book
and game drive for disabled servicemen at Christ-
mastime? And after that, how the Redskins ral-
lied again to send school supplies and gifts to war
refugees? And how North Side came smashing
through with a grand total of 3311.53 in the
March of Dimes campaign?
lt was the junior Red Cross, under the leader-
ship of Miss Judith Bowen and her delightful
originality, that was back of those rip-roaring con-
tests that made the Red Cross Drives of the year
royal entertainment for everyone. So fired are they
with enthusiasm and good will that theirs will
always be a job well-done for a worthy cause-

Qualities which are needed in our war-torn
world of today and in the peaceable world of to-
morrow are comprised in the four goals of
Polar-Y, namely, fellowship, Christian character,
leadership, and service. Members of Polar-Y are
preparing themselves to have the warmth and
friendliness of our club felt everywhere. As we
are a branch of the Young Women's Christian As-
sociation, we take part in their work too.
Our service projects are many. At Christmas
and Thanksgiving we have cheered many hearts
of the poor. Through the Needle Work Guild,
our aid has reached many other homes.
We've had our fun on the social side too: for
example, our "Peace Pipe Pow Wow', dance. Our
team scored a victory over Central and then we
smoothed it over and made peace with our dance.
Another big event was our annual "Tourna-

ground of literature to gain true appreciation of
the world's classic arts, these students have di-
rected their efforts and activities so as to gain a
better understanding of the past and current liter-
ature of the world.
This year's diversified programs included dis-
cussions of plays and poetry, the reviews of Walter
Lippmann's "U, S. Foreign Policy," Sumner
Welles' "Time for Decision," and a discussion
designed to show the inter-relation of music and
literature. With the aid of Miss Mabel Greenwalt

earned 10,000 points on publications work.
The charmed circle of Quill and Scroll added twelve North Side senior scribes to its
nation-wide membership roster this year because of their prominence in work on the
staffs of the newspaper and the year book, as well as for their scholastic ability.
Quill and Scroll, the international honor society for high school journalists, was or-
ganized April 10, 1926. It is international in scope and is connected with no school or
university. Local chapters have been established in more than two thousand schools in
every state and territory of the United States, and in Canada, China, Cuba, England, and
New Zealand. Twenty thousand young journalists, from schools outstanding in the quality
of their publication work, wear the Quill and Scroll badge.
These honored journalists are looking forward to the day when they may prove to
the world that "the pen is mighttier than the swordl' as they find their places in tomor-
row's domain of copywriters and authors.

The pianist of the orchestra has one of the most
difficult roles to fill. Upon her depends the rhythm
of the instrumental group and the rendition of the
foundation of the orchestration.
Seated at the large grand piano are the pianists of
the school orchestra, Betty Long and Marilyn Krauss,
1 upon whom the responsibility of this position falls.
Many students in North Side, through exercising their love of music, have
gained an inward peace and appreciation of the more beautiful things of life that
will be a lifelong cultural influence.
The orchestra, under the direction of Mr. Robert Shambaugh, has been a
source of pleasure both to its members and to those who have had the privilege of
hearing this fine musical group perform in concerts and student assemblies.
On February 9th, the orchestra and A Cappella choir presented the second in
its series of concerts. Three student soloists were featured with the orchestra. They
Were: Patricia Dunten, fluteg Dorothy Hoffman, marimbag and Dorothy Holcomb,
The school orchestra, supplemented by an organ and piano, comprised the
instrumental division of the Easter Cantata, given in the Northside auditorium on
two nights, March 23rd and 24th. The composition presented was "The Seven Last
Words," portraying the last words of Christ as He died on the cross. This group
also took part in the Spring Festival along with the entire music department.

the benefits that they have gained from being a part of such a splendid organization.
All voices are blended into either a barely audible whispering tone or a lusty sound
of joy, just by a flick of the director's wrist. The sound of the A Cappella choir can be

"Hey! Toss me the scissors-I gotta cut a mess
of proof!" The melodious yodeling of a soul in dire
distress is a common sound in Room 113. There is
a great deal of work connected with publishing a
newspaper, and no one is more aware of the fact than
Miss Sylvia E. Bowman, faculty adviser of The
Northerner. Grey hairs appear rapidly in the news-
The banners of the North Side publications are
resplendent with honor ratings from this year and
the past. From the Quill and Scroll, the International
Honor Award and the Gallup Award for distin-
guished service in advancing the war aims of the
school were received. The Columbia Scholastic Press
Association gave The Northerner a first-class rating
and All-'Columbian honors for creative writing. The
National Scholastic Press Association assigned the pa-
per first-class award, meaning that The Northerner
is an excellent paper.
One of the critics said, "Your paper is alert, in-
teresting, and has a personality all its own!" This
goes to show that the North Side students and those
who are active in Northerner work can be justly
proud of the achievements of the paper.
Peggy Watt was appointed publisher for the
first semester and Carol Havens the second semester.
The present editorsare: Ken Morrow, Priscilla Hunt,
Pat Johnson, Marilyn Curdes, and Evelyn Aiken.
All in all, the gang in 113 does a great deal of
work and is amply rewarded in the paper they turn

Behind the lines of Tuesday morning stamp and bond purchasers stands a
group of persons through whose efforts the students of North Side can help to
hasten the coming of Victory. This group is the War Council.
Its functions are many, its work is done efficiently. It is responsible for stamp
and bond purchases from the pep talks every Monday morning until the final
totals and percentages for the weekly sales are completed.
Stamp and Bond Day finds the council's advisers, Mrs. Maryann Chapman,
Miss Hazel Plummer, and Miss Bernice Sinclair, surrounded by numbers and per-
centages. Their willing helpers are members of the business and art departments
who 'tabulate the purchases and make charts and graphs.
Mr. Everett Pennington, who is in charge
of military training, prepares North Side
boys for the day when they will shoulder a
gun and defend the liberties and principles
that America must keep for the future.
A veteran of the last World War who
fought in France, and a captain and execu-
tive officer of the Third Battalion, First In-
fantry of the Indiana State Guard, Mr.

In addition to this achievement,
Dornte's cagers went through a torrid
Sectional tournament to come out nar-
rowly unscathed. Another tribute to
Dornte is that his team showed steady
improvement in almost every game
throughout the season.
The "never say die" North Side Redskins cli-
m d ' '
axe a great season, in which they were undefeated
in City Series competition by winnin th F
, g e ort
Wayne Sectionals. There hardwood boys proved that
y were a great team by coming from behind in
their last two games to win the f rth
ou sectional title
in the history of the school. Under the capable guid-
ance of Coach Bob Dornte, the speedy Red netters
came through with fifteen victories in twenty-three
When the season opened November 22 the Red-
skins came through with a thrilling 31 to 30 victory
over Central 'Catholics fighting Irish. At Laporte on
December 1, North Side found the Slicers too tough
and dropped a 30 to 23 game. Although playing
a better brand of ball on December 2, the Indians
fell before state-finalists from South B d
en Riley, 46
to 36, but they stopped the losing streak on December
y turning back a strong South Bend 'Central quin-
tet, 34 to 31.
High point of all December matches came when
the Redskins won a City Series contest by stopping
the Central Tigers, 37 to 35. After that win, the
Reds helped Auburn stretch its victory string to
eight straight wins but only after a whale of a battle
for North led until the last quarter. The Redskins
ended the year of 1944 by losing their scalp to-
Goshen's Redskins 39 to 22.
In the first game of the New Year, on january 5,
North Side opened with a terrific last quarter attack
to trim the South Side Green Archers 35 to 22. A
week later, when they triumphed over Centrall
Coach Robert Dornte, left, successful
mentor of North Side's basketball squad

before attained by a hardwood coach in
youngest of the city's net heads, sent

Catholic, 40 to 37, they chalked up their fourth straight City Series win. In a very ragged
game, Mishawaka scored a 37 to 36 victory on January 13 over the Redskins who were
decidedly off form and could never quite catch the Cavemen. The Redskins took, six
days later, a 30 to 25 defeat at the hands of the always tough Elkhart Blue Blazers.
By turning on the power in the last half, North Side overwhelmed the Michigan
City Red Devils, 49 to 33. Despite earlier losses, January ended with a bang when, on
january 26, the North Side Redskins won their fifth consecutive City Series game, 37 to
35, by outlasting Central Tigers in an overtime. The next night jim Leaman's set shot,
with twenty seconds to play, proved the doom of South Bend john Adams, as the Indians
won a great game, 35 to 33.
Pictured below is the 1944-45 Redskin basketball team which, for the fourth time in the
school's history, went on to the Regionals. Front Row, left to right, are: Bob Hursh, john Krieg,
Ned jackson, Herb Bruick, and Norm Cowan.
Second Row: jim Leaman, Vic Oetting, Norm Pfeiffer, Don Mahlan, and Bill Laney. In the
back row are Charles Todd, Don Munger, Willie Stoler, Lloyd Vogel, and Wayne Heath.
Breaking a long standing jinx on February 2, North Side's deadly sniping crushed
South Side on their own floor, 38 to 34. The Redskins proved too tough for the Nappa-
nee Bulldogs and came out on the long end of a 45 to 32 score.
North Side made it five and five in the conference standings for the year as they
downed the South Bend Washington Panthers, 48 to 41, on February 10. Six days later
the fighting Redskins came roaring from behind to take the lead in the last quarter only
to be nosed by one of the four state finalists, Huntington Vikings, 47 to 45.
The Redskins opened the Sectionals and defeated a weak Arcola team 38 to 17.
The Northmen finally won over a stubborn Elmhurst Trojan team, 39 to 33, to make
During the past basketball season, these poses of North Side's main string have become

In the background pictures in the top row, North Side and opponents gang up for the catchg

and the Redskins close in to get a rebound. South Side and North Side players all stretch for the
Concordia's Cadets their next victim. Behind seven points with two minutes to play,
the Red put on a great spurt to win, 40 to 38.
For the third time this year, the North Side Redskins met and defeated the South
Side Green Archers, 30 to 28. Little Bill Laney's rebound shot with ten seconds to play
proved the deciding basket.
Picked to win the Regionals the Redskins were upset in the second afternoon game
by a rugged Syracuse team.
Losing only Vogel, Todd, Kreig, and Laney, this year the Dorntemen anticipate an
even better season next year. Cowan, Leaman, Pfeiffer, Munger, Oetting, Bruick, Hurst,
and Jackson will be back to carry on.
In the scene in the top row Central's Biggs and North's Laney go for a rebound. To the right,
the teams leave the floor after a hard battle. Familiar words, "It was a great game."
Norb Cowan and Bill Laney show how they guard the foe-but this time he is wholly imaginary.
Don Munger takes his stand as he prepares to take that free toss, Herb Bruick gets ready to pass
the ball and Herb Bruick shows how he does it sometimes.
In the action shot in the bottom row, the boys gather around the goal to catch that ball when
it comes through-or if it doesn't, to pick it up on the rebound.

The Redskin gridders of 1944 played a tough schedule, with an inexperienced
eleven and a lot of bad breaks, nevertheless, they accumulated a record which does credit
to the aggressiveness and spirit of a hard-fighting team and its coach, Bob Dornte. North
Side placed second only to South Side in City Series competition, and Charles Todd, Don
Mansfield, Wayne Heath, and Frank Glasa were chosen on the All-City Team.
North dropped its first three games to Central, South Side, and Mishawaka. The
starting line-up changed a great deal during these games, as Coach Dornte tried to find
an eleven that clicked. Evidently he succeeded, for the Red men took the next three
games from Central Catholic, Central, and the previously undefeated Huntington
North Side fell before Riley of South Bend, one of the state's outstanding teams,
but bounced back to defeat South Side. During the Elkhart game, Lady Luck frowned
on the Redskins, however, for they lost the contest and also three men because of in-
juries. A somewhat demoralized eleven fell before Central Catholic in the final game.
Inexperience was the big handicap which kept North Side from bettering our
record of four wins and six losses. But the Redskins played clean, hard football, their
record is one to be proud of.

Coach Rolla Chambers, left, is shown in a
characteristic pose, holding one of the many tro-
phies his perpetually successful track teams have
attained. Mr. Chambers, recognized as the out-
standing cinder mentor in Indiana, has coached
teams which have won four State Indoor cham-
pionships and two State Outdoor championships,
four Kokomo relays, three Southport relays, and
six State Cross Country championships.
Coach Chambers has been at North Side ever
since its opening, -and from 1930, the first year
of track activity, has instilled in the boys with
whom he has worked a spirit of fair play, clean
sportsmanship, and the will to win. He takes a
personal interest in each boy, trying to help him
to do his best. Coach Chambers works hard, and
works his teams hard. The respect and admira-
tion of the team members for him however will
dispel any doubts as to the effectiveness of these
North Side has been a power in Indiana track
for many years, and North's Cross Country teams
have a reputation of near-invincability. Much
credit for these accomplishments must go to Coach
ILC? Jelly CGAAPQ
"We may not win it, but we wouldn't trade our chances for anyone else's in the
state." This was the statement of Rolla Chambers, which caused track mentors to shudder,
shake their heads, and exclaim, "North Side, again?"
Due to the Legend's going to press early and the team's slowness to come to hand,
no meets had been run at this writing, but the Chambersmen once more had the most
attractive schedule in the state. It included the North Side-Hammond Invitational In-
door State Meet, the new Indianapolis Relays, duals with South Side, Central, Mishawaka,
and Kokomo, the Kokomo Relays, which the Rover Boys will try to win for the fifth
consecutive year, the N. I. C. Meets in which the Rampaging Redskins were nosed out
by Hammond last year, the Sectionals, the State, and possibly a City Meet.
The 1945 aggregation has much more balance than last year's team, which would
have finished only a point out of first place competition against more than 100 schools,
but for an unfortunate accident in the mile relay.
Lefty Whitacre, successor to Ash Hawk as lndiana's distance champ, has reeled off
brilliant times in the mile, 880, and mile relay. Ken Morrow is in 100, 220, 440, 880
relay, Charley Patterson, 440, and mile relay, Jim Schwartz, Don Poffenberger, and
Wayne Kesler in the high and low hurdles.
Lloyd Vogel, Phil Worley, and Bill Laney, participate in the short dashes, and 880
relay, Don Munger and Herb Bruick in the 440 and mile relay, jack Schick, Walt
Helmke, and Bob Gorrell in the 880, Al Silk and Walt Bauermeister in the mileg and
Don Mansfield, Tom Woods, Bob Bullard, Ron Buehrer, and Frank Glasa in -the field
events are the numerous mainstays of North's cinder team.
Only five seniors will be graduated, so next year's prospects are exceedingly bright.
Relay man Phil Worley gives the baton to quarter-miler Charles Pat-
terson to send him sailing on his way in the 440. Upper center: Bobby
Gorrell stretches the baton to "Man O' War" Morrow on a half-mile
relay run. Upper right: The two unheralded but irreplaceable student
managers are responsible Wade Prentice and "Pickles" Dellinger.
Lower left: Big, beefy Tom Woods and "Minnie" Mansfield make
ready to heave the shot forty feet or thereabouts. Lower center: The
traveling trackmen, North Side's outstanding milers, Lefty Whitacre, A1
Silk, and Walt Bauermeister, end another mile in that order. Lower right:
Phil Worley and Ken Morrow team up in a gag shot, showing "how to
do itvif you can get away with it."
Here's our champion track team in action! Upper Left: Bob Bullard and
Nelson Detwiler, North Side's ace pole vaulters, obligingly pose for the camera-
man. The scowls are for the sun, not the cameraman.
Upper Center: The all-out effort to get out of the holes "first" is clearly
outlined in these boys' grirnacesg left to right, jim Schwartz, Wayne Kesler, and
Ken Morrow. Tough luck, boys, looks like you're going to be left, as Ken
shoots off like greased lightning.
Upper right: Lanky jack Schick is shown overtaking Bob Gorrell in the
half-mile run. That's all right, Bobg after all, this is jack's last year.
Lower Left: Watch that stick! Last year's pole vault star, Clancy Hanson,
now overseas in the Navy, soars over the bar in a characteristic pose.
Lower Center: Wayne Kesler snaps over the highs, displaying good hurdle
form. He's also displaying a peculiar look on his face that's somewhere between
pain and fright.
Lower Right: Stick-skimmer Jimmy Schwartz closely resembles "Batman"
in this low hurdle shot. But jimmy Batman wears a cape.

For third straight time, North Side's cross-country team has cap-
tured the Northern Indiana Conference title. This team is hailed by
Coach Chambers as the greatest cross country team ever to run in the
state. The Harriers opened their season with a brilliant display of
power by defeating Laporte's Slicers, 15 to 69. fLow scorer is winnerj
The following week the thinlies traveled to Elkhart to down them,
19 to 47. The Elkhart boys thought they could topple the Redskins
but the Harriers from North Side trounced them again, 19 to 43. The
next week the Red fans thought their Harriers had met their match
in the highly regarded Roosevelt team, but our rampaging team romped
over Roosevelt, 19 to 55.
On October 21, Hammond, North's old track rival, visited the
Redskins' camp ground only to be thoroughly beaten, 19 to 59. Lefty
Whitacre set a new Franke Park course record of 9:39. November 4,
date of the Northern Indiana Conference meet, saw the Redskins hav-
ing a little trouble, for the Gary Horsemen of Horace Mann, their only
stiff competition, finished second, 70 points behind the Redskins,
who set an all time NIC scoring record of 30 points. The NIC meet
made a total of 62 consecutive wins for the North Side cross-country
The Harriers elected as their co-captains Lefty Whitacre and Del-
bert Byerley, now a Merchant Marine, who was number four man on
the team. Bill Kemp, now in the Navy, ran in number three position.
Walt Bauermiester held down number two place. Dick Stalf captured
number five position followed by John Schick in sixth. Seventh and
eighth places were held by Bob Gorrell and Al Silk, respectively. All
eight boys received letters.
The team this year broke last year's team record score of 36 points
in the NIC meet by scoring a new low of only 30 points.

This year, above all years, has been a good one for these Lettermen
who, under the guidance of Miss julia Storr, Rolla Chambers, and Bob
Dornte, have shown what they could do for their Alma Mater. Wayne
Heath, president, has shown his ability in football, Lloyd Vogel, vice-
president, gave his best performance in basketball and did a fine job in
track, Dick Stalf, secretary, starred in cross-country.
Lettermen are easily spotted about the halls, as they wear their 'big
"N's" which they work so hard to achieve, and which entitle them to
membership in this club.
The white stripes on the sleeve of the wearer indicate the number of
years on the squad, and a gold stripe gives the wearer the distinction of
being honored as captain of the team. Of course, the stars on the sleeve
of the track squad designate the capture of a state championship.
The track squad has plenty of these stars and has added a lot of
trophies to the show case. Our show cases display the merits our boys
have displayed on the football field, on the track, on hardwood, in the
past years. In fact, an extension is going to be built on to the one we
now have, so they can extend their winnings of trophies in the future,
without embarrassing anyone.
These Lettermen are true Redskins of North Side. They are the ones
who carry the Redskin banner on the athletic field of battle and they are
the 'boys who are going into the services of the United States Armed Forces
to carry the national emblem, the Stars and Stripes, to victory.

Intramural sports furnished North Siders with much interesting
competition during the past year, and brought into the limelight some who
were to make even bigger names for themselves in varsity athletics.
The annual leader's tournament proved to be a thriller from start to
finish, with Foo's Boys and the Raiders battling for the championship.
The Foo's came out on top in an overtime, 23 to 21. Cowan was high
point man with 13, and Cowan, Hursh, and Pfeiffer of the Foo's went
on to play varsity basketball.
jack Mahlan set a new record in capturing the intramural cross-
country meet. Simon finished second, Detwiller third, Hather fourth,
Alden fifth, and Koenig sixth.
The tennis team, under the direction of Coach Noel Wfhittern, has
yet to get its season underway.
Girls' intramural competition, directed by Miss Louise Waterson,
and by Miss Margaret Spiegel, consisted of basketball, volleyball, and

Blueprinting and executing North Side's athletic activities is the job
of the Athletic Board. Because of the wartime need for healthy and
physically fit young men, the work of the board has greatly increased in
importance since 1943 when the ruling that all boys must take part in
some form of military training or physical fitness was affected.
Captain Everett Pennington is teaching the boys in his military drill
classes much valuable information which will be useful to them when
they enter the Armed Forces. Mr. Hyrle Ivy's work in the Rifle Club
teaches the boys sharpshooting and good sportsmanship, while, as swim-
ming instructor, he improves their muscular coordination and lung
Mr. J. R. Sinks handles the intramural sports, Mr. Noel Whittern
coaches tennis, and Mr. Robert Dornte serves as head mentor of the foot-
ball and basketball teams.
Mr. Rolla Chambers not only coaches the track and cross country
teams but also arranges the athletic schedules assisted by Mr. Leslie Reeves
who handles the athletic department finances.
Mr. Milton H. Northrop's task is to see that everything is done fairly
and that North Side meets the standards set by the Indiana High School
Athletic Association. Mr. Northrop recently was accorded the honor of
being appointed to a position on the IHSAA board of control. Few high
school principals receive this privilege. This board controls inter-scholastic
tourneys and meets, determines forfeitures, and discusses and decides the

Miss Waterson also teaches rhythm classes which she
started this fall, for no class of this nature was ever
before on the curriculum.

tivities in tumbling and basketball and Miss Spiegel the
track and softball. Both direct volley ball.

Since war has come to America it is only natural that it should come to North Side.
Physical fitness classes now try to build up healthy bodies through the medium of con-
centrated exercises, rhythms, or sports. Gym classes, though they still play the different
games, are concentrating more on exercises too.
The Girls' Athletic Association, commonly called the GAA, helps to train our young
girls, so they can play a greater role in a future healthy America, and to impress on the
minds of our young athletes the rules of good sportsmanship. They do all this, and yet
they still have fun.
The credit for the success of the club this year goes to the two very capable gym
instructors, Miss Margaret Spiegel and Miss Louise Waterson, who have contributed their
time and effort to make the organization what the girls want.
To keep the girls happy, practices in basketball, volleyball, tumbling, and track are
held. The practices are followed by contests to decide the champions. The seniors lead
in basketball and volleyball, but in track they 'bow low before those active and nimble
The blocked "N," the highest award given by GAA, is received when one thousand
points are garnered. GAA emblem is given when a girl receives six hundred points to
her credit. The winged "N" used to be the highest award, but in 1945 the point system
was changed and the winged "N" dropped.
The clubis biggest annual event is the Water Carnival, which was held on April 13
this year. Specialty acts, and elaborate displays of lights on the water were the feature
GAA also offers an after-game dance, occasionally a skating party, a Vod-Vil, and
the rough initiation for new freshmen.
There is only one drawback to the club and that is that the constitution says, and I
quote, "All boys are exempt," unquote.
