As soon as the workmen who built North Side stepped back to
admire their work, the Student Council representatives took over
and began to build the traditions which have been passed down to
us today. To develop a sense of democracy, to draw the student
body and faculty together, and to promote in all ways the ideals of
the school are the goals of the Student Council.
Oflicers for the 194748 school year were John Harper, presif
dent, Dale Csborne, vicefpresidentg and Ruth Keltsch, secretary.
Miss Gross and Mr. Northrop have served as advisers to the Council
since its founding in 1928.
Throughout the year the Student Council sponsors several func'
tions. On BackftofSchool Night, November 12, the members acted
as guides for the parents. Cne way stairways were in effect from
December 15 to January 10. CetfAcquainted Day was held in Feb'
ruary, with the annual Courtesy Week following a few weeks later.
In the spring the junior high school students were guests of the
Student Council in a tour of North Side. Through these outstanding
events and many lesser ones the Student Council enjoyed a highly
successful school year.

Since the fall of 1927 the English
department has tried to give the pupils
at North Side a thorough training in
the fundamentals of good English.
The original department was headed
by Miss Mary Cromer. In 1937 Miss
Cromer was succeeded by Charles
Dickenson, who in turn, was succeed'
ed by Miss Catherine Cleary, the
present head of the department.
Members of the English departf
ment have as their aim to help their
pupils achieve mastery in the art of
communication - reading, writing,
and speaking. Through the teaching
of reading and in the fostering of a
love for books, the department has
tried to install in its students a fuller
appreciation of their American herif
tage. By a program in selffexpression
each student has been better prepared
to clarify his thoughts, stimulate his
imagination, and express himself in a
clearer manner. Every student has
been taught to try to develop an
original style of writing with regard
to spelling and punctuation rules.
Through wisely directed reading, the
members of the English department
have attempted to help their pupils
develop that attitude which will dispel
enmities of race, of creed, of social
classes, and of nations. Mindful of
these objectives, the North Side stuf
dent has received a rounded English
background upon graduation.
Faculty members of the social science def
partment are, from left to right, top row:
Department head Marian Bash, Williiani
Willer, Harry Young. Second row: Kath'

ln the last twenty years, world horif
Zons have been broadened, and a globf
al view of history and geography has
affected the teaching of all social
sciences courses. There has been a
greater emphasis on current news and
geography, and on the social and eco'
nomic problems that are disturbing
the world today. Of the original facf
ulty group, john DeLong is the only
remaining member. Merton Kimes
headed the social science department
until 1945 when he resigned and Miss
Bash became head of the department.
These changes have occurred in
curriculum. About ten years ago
United States history and World his'
tory changed places as junior and
sophomore subjects. A senior course
in sociology was added in 1939. The
freshman citizenship course was
dropped about four years ago, and the
vocations course was offered by the
social science department.
To produce a good citizen who is
fully versed in current issues has be'
come increasingly difficult because
of the complexity of the world in
which the young person Ends himself.
Because the student must decide many
issues after graduation, courses in the
social sciences have been planned to
impress upon the student his duty to
his country and to his community.
These principles have been effective
in creating broadminded citizens.

When North Side was opened to
enrollment in the year 192768, a def
partment of business was included. Cf
the original stall Miss Ural Furst is
the only one remaining. The depart'
ment has grown through the years,
and now six teachers are employed in
teaching the various business subjects
considered necessary for a wellfroundf
ed commercial education. Leslie

The purpose of the department is
twoffold: To give the necessary train'
ing in those business activities in
which all engage regardless of occupaf
tion, and to give specialization to
those who wish to prepare for a
business career. The business depart'
ment offers courses in the principles
of bookkeeping, consumer buying,
business law, and business administraf
tion. Although much of the work
does not ordinarily prepare a student
for college, a course has been outlined
whereby a pupil may major in busif
ness and yet fulfill the requirements
for college entrance. A student may
in his third year branch out into
clerical or stenographic courses. In
preparing for secretarial work, pupils
must obtain an eflicient knowledge of
filing and be able to operate cor'
rectly machines used in modern offices,
In the clerical course students should
be well informed in the correct filing
Ardent Art dherents
Through the ages it has been the desire of man to create line pieces
of art and to transmit a thought or an idea into a thing of beauty. The
purpose of the art department is to develop the creative talent of the
students interested in this type of work.
Throughout its twenty years of existence, the art department has
never ceased to willingly donate its time and efforts to other departments.
Designing backdrops, posters, programs, and decorations for banquets,
dances, and musical and dramatic programs are just a few of such instances.
Thus, the art department has expanded and increased in size, enrollment,
courses, and activities.
The art department has graduated many students who are making
themselves prominent in the art field and of whom North Side is justly
proud. In art contests she has received many honors. Painters, designers,
architects ffff the future world lies in your hands!

called the "Northerner." journalism classes, under the direction of Miss
Freda Withers, learn how to write, edit, and in general how to put out a
good paper. Redskin journalists learn hy experience as Well as hy study.
Miss Margery Suter, who founded the Student Players Cluh here in
1928, instructs classes in drama for all students who have gained sophomore
rating. Classes gain experience hy giving monologues and reading senior
plays given in the past. After one semester of drama, the student may he

Since 1928 the speech club, National Forensic League, has flourished
at North Side. Students who are interested in speech may enter one of the
speech classes, now under the direction of Alhert Coil. Speech trips are

of twentyfsix memhers, a few instruf
ments, and a small mixed chorus class.
During the passing of twenty years,
the department has grown to approxif
mately four hundred students. The
department is divided into hand,
choir, and organ sections.
The hand was organized during the

Latin, students heeome acquainted
with the cultural values of Roman
civilization, increase their knowledge
of English, and hroaden their literary
horizons. Students who take up ad'
vaneed Latin become acquainted with
the works of Cieero and Virgil. The
study of French and Spanish offers a

The home economics department
of North Side has been in existence
since the school was first founded. ln
its earliest years only two years of
work were offered-home economics
1, 2, 3, and 4. Later semesters 'T and
6 were added, and next year home
economics 7, a course in family relaf
tionships, will be offered to juniors
and seniors. Any girl may elect home
economics as a major or a minor.
After completing her first and second
semesters, she may take other courses
in any order she desires.
Home economics students, deriving
a moral from the old adage, "the way
to a man's heart is through the stom'
ach," arm themselves with spoon and
apron. Practical application of all
culinary arts is tested by laboratory.
The apartment serves as a basis for

Each year since the school opened, the industrial arts department has
tried to make boys better skilled in the fields of mechanical drawing, wood,
and metal. Learning by doing, these students combine theory and practice
to prepare for highly technical and progressive twentieth century industry.
Teaching mechanical drawing classes since September, 1927, Tourist
Thompson has instilled the fundamentals of using the Tfsquare, drawing
board, and pencil to construct accurate plans for production. Among things
learned in this course are the use of instruments, lettering, relation of geomf
etry, projection, and inking.
ln the wood courses, which Harry Thomas has instructed since Septemf
ber, 1942, students learn to operate hand tools and wood lathes in studying
things such as house construction, millwork, woodturning, and finishing.
Since September, 1937, Ruthflord Smuts has taught metal. These
courses include sheet metal work, forge work, machine shop, foundry pracf
tice, pattern making, and arc welding or acetylene welding.
Shown below are Harry A. Thomas, Tourist W. Thompson, and Ruthford

The activities of the Redskins have grown as the school
has grown. As students became more interested in the sub'
jects they were studying, they established clubs so that they
might learn more about the subject through organized ref
search. The Ripples Club established in 1927 has since
grown into the Helicon Club. Booster Club was established
the first year. The band and glee club consisted of a few
members the first year but have since grown into the large
concert band and A Cappella choir. The Northerner and the
Legend were the first literary efforts of the students. National
Forensic League was organized in the fall of 1928 and the
junior Forensic League in 1937 by Loy C. Laney. The junior
Red Cross, established in 1929, was reforganized in the fall
of 1931. The junior Classical League was formed in the
spring of 1947, The HifY Club was founded in 1929 and
revived in 1946 by Dayton Musselman. The Girls Athletic
Association was organized in 1927 and has continued to
flourish. Miss Margery Suter founded the Student Players
Club in 1927 here at North Side. PhyfChem was organized
in 1932. In 1930, Mr. Ivy started the Rifle Club. PolarfY was
organized during the first year. The Nature Club began un'
der the name of the Carden Club in 1931. Camera Club was
created in 1934. PanfAmerican began in 1943. LosfSofdalfes
was formed in 1945, and Parmi Nos Amis was organized in

Modern Morale Builders
To build school spirit and good
citizenship and to serve the school,
the Booster Club was organized soon
after North Side opened in 1927.
Since that time faculty advisers have
been Miss Hilda Aumann, Miss Ural

fans were found flocking to the conf

out for a small fee. Qthers satisfied
the wants of spectators in the stands.
However, games were not the sole
timeftakers. Boosters also sold coke
for the music department street fair,
presented varied pep sessions, and sold
Redskin auto tags. At the sectionals
fans sported Redskin feathers and
Redskin beanies they had bought from
Boosters. During the sectional games,

The Nature Club was founded in
1931 by Clifford Risk, Miss Julia
Alexander, and Miss Marie Miller as
club advisers. The organization was
originally the Garden Club, but in
1933 it became the Nature Club with
Howard Michaud and Miss Vesta
Thompson as advisers. Since 1945 the
club has been guided by Miss Thompf
son and Clifford Gtt. The organif
zation is affiliated with the junior
Academy of Science.
Activities of the Nature Club are
varied. Several hikes are held throughf
out the year. Gn these hikes the memf
hers can observe nature first hand.
There are two annual events of the
club. One of these is the junior Acad'
emy of Science Convention which
was held at Muncie last fall. Several
members attended this convention,
and Ray Giant exhibited his collection
of stuffed animals and insects. Every
.lune a picnic is held at which the
officers for the next year are elected.
For the past two years the Nature
Club has presented over the School
of the Air program a skit written by
Sally Hamlett and dramatized by ,lim
Craig, Virgil Hagy, Margaret Koontz,
and Sally Hamlett.
Officers for this year were Sally
Hamlett, president: lim Craig, vice'
president: Betty Peters, secretary: and
Ray Giant, treasurer.

Candid Camera Enthusiasts
ln 1934 a newly organized group
of Redskins called themselves the
Kodak Club. The popularity of phof
tography was spreading like wildfire
to become one of the world's most
popular hobbies. Acquiring two prof
jectors, the Kodak Club was already
showing its progress in 1935. lt also
began to promote and aid visual ed'
ucation, one of its most important
roles. ln 1946 Miss Marion Bash,
former adviser, decided to devote her
attention solely to visual education:
so Dayton Mussleman took over what
is now known as the Camera Club.
Photographic programs included
talks and demonstrations by club
members and professional and amateur
experts on techniques such as picture
composition, color photography, def
velopment, printing, and enlargement
of pictures, and operation of movie
and slide projectors. At Christmas
members made personally photo'
graphed greeting cards. Spring
pictureftaking hikes were made
through scenic areas. During this
school year, two fullflength movies,
"Young Mr. Pitt" and 'LBuffalo Billn,
were shown to the student body.
Leaders of the organization during
the first semester were Barbara Aspy,
president: Joyce Diemer, vicefpresi'
dent: Williani Meyers, secretary: and
Don Seabold, dark room director.
Pins, in the form of tiny silver or gold
folding cameras bearing the initials
N.S.C.C., were presented to members
for service points.

In the fall of 1931 Mrs. Maryann
Chapman organized the junior Red
Cross. Their motto was service. On
Thanksgiving and Christmas, baskets
for the needy in our school were filled,
and students helped deliver them. Un'
til the war the club sent two delegates
in the spring to the national convenf
tion usually held in Washington. It
lasted a week with all expenses paid.
Following the 1937 flood in the south'
ern part of the state, the club sent
hundreds of bundles of clothing to the
distressed. ln 1932 Miss Marian Bash
and Miss Mabel Greenwalt assisted
Mrs. Chapman. In 1941 Miss Hazel
Plummer and Miss Judith Bowen took
charge of the club. During the war,
the club contributed about S1600 to
the American Red Cross and S600 to
the Polio Fund through school drives.
They filled about 500 Red Cross gift
boxes for children overseas.
Through generous contributions of
students and clubs, Red Cross carries
on its work. This year, for the third
consecutive time, the club adopted
two war orphans. Members also filled
boxes for the needy. Money received
from an afterfgame dance helped pay
for some of these worthwhile deeds.

South American Wa
PanfAmerican Club was organized
in the fall of 1943 by Miss Hazel
Plummer. The purpose of the club is
to further friendly relations and solif
darity of the western hemisphere.
During the war, friendly relations be'
tween North, Central, and South
America was a factor which aided in
the allied victory. The club helped
continue this feeling of trust and un'
derstanding. In 1946 the organization
purchased a set of Panffimerican flags
which was presented to the school on
April 14, Panffxmerican day. The
club has a program annually on or
near this date.
Membership is limited to fortyffour,
a boy and a girl to represent each of
the twentyftwo western hemisphere
countries. Programs for the meetings
consist of discussions on the various
countries by their representative, the
object being to gain knowledge and
understanding of these nations. Cc'
casionally guest speakers from the
faculty or from outside are invited to
give talks. Annual events sponsored
by the club are its Christmas party
and a picnic held in the spring. The
officers of the club are Patty Long,
president, Mary Dell Ford, vicefpresif

Scintillating Student Scientists
Organized in December, 1931, the
PhyfChem Club was first under the
supervision of Rolla P. Chambers,
physics instructor, and E. M. Suter,
chemistry instructor. At that time it
was decided that the group would be
limited to students who are taking or
have taken either physics, chemistry,
or both. Each year the membership
ranges from forty to eighty students
of these two sciences. ln 1934 Harold
A. Thomas took over as an adviser,
and in 1942 M. Sherman Pressler be'
gan assisting him.
When a student joins PbyfChem,
he becomes aware of the threefold
purpose of the group: stimulation of
interests in physics and chemistry,
opportunity to give expression to such
interests, and social contacts with
other people bearing scientific aspiraf
Throughout the year the organ'
ization fills this purpose with a variety
of programs, including hikes, outside
speakers, tours, and experiments by
members. Don Seabold produced ex'
citement at one meeting with his
match experiments. Another time
Williani Meyers demonstrated tele'
vision. Top features of the year have
been a dance after the first North Side
home football game, the Christmas
party, and the senior picnic.

Rapid Firing Redskins
The North Side Rifle Club, a memf
ber of the National Rifle Association,
was organized in 1930 under the di'
rection of Hyrle Ivy. The club started
with only a few boys, but now is com'
prised of a large group of both boys
The club began in a small way with
one Savage rifle constituting its supply
of arms. However, the club has grown
until it now has in its possession six of
the finest rifles, equipped with the
best sights made.
Until 1938, Mr. Ivy conducted
rifle teams which competed with other
schools in the city and county. North
Side's team won the majority of the
matches with other schools, and from
1933 to 1938 they were the county
champions. The teams have also def
feated men's rifle teams in the city.
During the first year of Wcirld War
II, over two hundred boys and girls
were trained in rifle markmanship.
For those interested in learning
how to shoot a rifle and for those
who wish to improve their accuracy,
the North Side Rifle Club is at their
service. As the shooter gradually bef
comes more accurate, under the di'
rection of Mrs. Grace Bridges and Mr.
Ivy, his classification is raised.
The group picture shown here includes.

The junior Classical League is a
national organization composed of
Cicero and Virgil students. The
North Side chapter was formed in the
spring of 1947. There were twenty'
four charter memhers who wrote the
constitution for the local group with
the motive of furthering interest and
study of foreign languages. The oth'
cial charter reads:
'LThe memhers of .lunior Classical
League covenant to hand on the torch
of classical civilization in the modern
world. They believe an acquaintance
with the civilization of Greece and
Rome will help them understand and
appraise this world of today which is
indehted to ancient civilization in its
governments, laws, literature, lan'
guages, and arts."
Cluh meetings, consisting of husif
ness and interesting programs, are
held every third Monday. The Nof
vemher program was a play, "Thanks
giving for Latin." Each year the tra'
ditional initiation of new memhers is
a trip to Hades. The initiates must
come hefore the judges, who deter'
mine hy weighing their good and had
deeds Whether they are sent to the
Elysian Fields or Tartarus. Another
tradition is the joint Christmas party
with the various language clubs. A
joint dance was held in Eehruary
after the South Bend game.

Losfsofdalfes, the Spanish Club,
was organized in the fall of 1945.
Membership in the club has been ref
stricted to students who are taking
or who have taken Spanish. The purf
pose of the club is to learn as much
as possible about the people of Span'
ish speaking countries through the
study of their art, music, and literaf
ture. This is done through the study
of songs and games and by reports
on their literature.
Throughout its first year, the club
held its meetings on the second and
fourth Wednesdays during the fifth
period. This year, however, they have
been held on the second Tuesday of
each month after school. The main
activities of the club during the year
included a joint Christmas party with
the two other language clubs and a
joint dance with the language clubs.
A Spanish medal is awarded to that
student who has maintained a high
scholastic record and assumed a dilif
gent attitude throughout his courses

Founded in 1929 at North Side and
revived in 1946 by Dayton lvlusself
man, the HifY Club is a branch of
the Young Meti's Christian Associaf
tion. Since the HifY pledge is "To
create, maintain, and extend through'
out the school and community high
standards of Christian character,"
members attempt to carry out this
spirit in clean speech, clean sports,
clean scholarship, and clean living.
Beginning the year in a joint can'
dlelight induction ceremony with the
Central and South Side groups, HifY
launched a season of varied programs.
Highlighting the industrial trips were
excursions through the lournalfCaf
zette, Radio Station WCWO, and the
International Harvester. Also promif
nent industrial, business, and religious
leaders spoke at meetings.
Alert to world conditions, the
North Side HifY was the iirst club
in Indiana to make a substantial conf
tribution to the Wiirltl Youth Restorf
ation Fund, which is used for summer
camps and other "Y" activities around
the world. Establishment of a check'
room service for Redskin basketball
games took up much of the time of
HifYans. A skating party was planned
as another means of financing the
service program of the club.

of only tive girls, but this popular organization
has now attained a membership of fifteen lassies
who represent North Side at all football and
basketball games when the Redskins play host.
Qther activities in which they participate are
pep sessions, parades, concerts, and programs.
The lvlajorettes practice routines and new
formations during a free period each day to add
color and background to many school activities.
During this period they are under the guidance

Through the trees edging the banks of the St. Joe,
one can glimpse the four stone columns forming
the familiar facade of the home of the Redskins.
The sports record of the Redskins was not outstanding
the first few years. Mark Bills was the hrst football and
basketball coach and Rolla Chambers the first track coach.
North Side's first athletic board consisted of Mr. Bills, Mr.
Chambers, Milton H. Northrop, Hyrle Ivy, john DeLong,
Elvin Byster, and John R. Sinks. Steve Marshall was the
first Redskin to win the Guild trophy, and William Scheiman
was the first Redskin to win an "N" for track. The first
Win in football was in 1928 when the Redskins won over
Reading High of Reading, Michigan, 14f12. The footballers
won over Central for the Hrst time in 1934. In 1930 the
Reds tied South in football. They shared the first Redskin
city football title with Central in 1935.
ln 1930 the Redskins won their first sectional basketball
crown. ln 1932 they Won the sectional title and Went to the
semiffinals. A third sectional title was Won in 1945.
Cn the cinder path in 1930 the Braves captured the city
championship, a title they have not since relinquished. The
seven N.l.C. individual running records are held by North
tracksters. North's longest winning streak started at the be'
ginning of the 1941 season and ended with the state meet
in 1943 with a total of forty consecutive wins.
Intramural sports have gained a place for themselves on
North Side's sports schedules. The Girls' Athletic Associaf
tion has guided the activities of girls' sports since 1927.

Cross country was started at North Side in
the fall of 1929 for the purpose of training dis'
tance runners for the spring track team. This purf
pose has been outgrown down through the years
as the over hill and dale sport has become a major
sport at North Side. Since the start of cross
country at the tepee, the Red runners have covf
ered themselves with glory and honor by capturf
ing several state and Northern Indiana Conferf
Anderson was the site of the first state meet
in 1937, and the Red walked off with the title.
Then in 1940 started a win streak that has gone
unequaled since and will probably never be ap'
proached. From the fall of 1940 to Cctober 1945, the thinliclads under
their great coach, Rolla P. Chambers, ran up a streak of 68 straight wins
in meets. During this time, some of the greatest high school runners in
history paced the Northmen to title after title.
Names that will be remembered for a long while are Ash Hawk, two
time state champg "Lefty" Gene Whitacre, also state titlistg Wayne Simon,
winner of one race in the 1946 state meetg and Nelson Detwiler, holder

Compared to previous years, the 1947
crossfcountry season proved mediocre. With
four letter men returning, including Wayne
Simon, 1946 state champion, Nelson Det'
wiler, Don Conners, and Jim Craig, the Red
was expected to turn in a fine season but
many unlucky breaks struck the Redskins.
The team was handicapped by illness all sea'
son with Simon out of action for five meets
and Detwiler with the flu at sectional time.
Nevertheless, the North men under the di'
rection of Coach Rolla Chambers iinished the
season with iive wins and four losses. They

second in the Northern Indiana Conference,
and finished eighth in the state meet. At

Two mythical state championships are the highlights of twenty years of football at
North Side. Always a popular sport at the tepee, the gridiron game has been one sport in
which the Redmen have often shone. Four able coaches have handled the reins of the
Red teams through the years. Mark Bills started, Robert Nulf took over in 1934. He was
followed by Bob Dornte in 1942 and present coach, Tony luska, in 1946.
The two state championships came in 1937 and 1940, both under the able leadership
of Coach Nulf. The 1940 team was considered to be one of the best high school football
teams in state history. It had a rugged line including allfstate tackle, Pat Barley: and the
backfield had such powerful figures as Bob Cowan, allfstate performer who holds the state
scoring record and is now a profstar: and Bob Young, who made the second state squad.
The most recent North Side team to meet with a measure of success was the 1946 ag'
gregation which captured the city title in one of the most thrilling seasons ever experif
enced at North Side. Cddly enough, the teams with the poorest records occurred during
the first season, 1928 and the latest season, 1947. Cther star performers throughout the
years have been the Turner twins in 1937: Bill Boedecker, who is also playing pro ball, in
1942: Frank Clasa in 1944: and Don Mansfield in 1946.
This year's Redskin gridmen opened their season by starting spring practice on August
15 with very few lettermen returning. lt was the difficult job of Coach Juska to start
almost from scratch to form a practically new ball team. Cnly men with much experience
were Pierce and Crosby, guards: Cutman, tackle: Shearer at quarterback: and Conway at
half. These boys formed the nucleus of the team that was to fight for victory in vain
against ten of the state's best elevens.
The Redmen came closest to victory in their first game with Elkhart when the Blue
Blazers squeezed out a 6 to O triumph at Elkhart. North's trouble, as during the whole
season, was maintaining a sustained drive.

North played next at Mans'
field, Chio, and returned home
on the short end of a 37 to 13
decision. Home fans saw the
closest game of the season when
Mishawaka came to town to
help dedicate the new electric
scoreboard at Northrop field.
The Cavemen triumphed by a
19 to 12 decision and had to
come from behind to capture
the victory. Then came three
successive losses to city foes,
Central Catholic, Central and
South Side by 21 to 0, 39 to
19, and 27 to 12, respectively.

Coach juska's men wound up
the season with four losses to

foes, losing to South Bend Riley

trips to Laporte and Central of
South Bend ended in the dis'
astrous scores of 40 and 46 to O.
Boys who saw the most ac'
tion during the year were lvy,
Grant and Stouffer at ends, Gut'
man, Struver and Preston at
tackles, Pierce, Crosby, Lahf

Hulfeld and Ellenwood at cenf

Basketball has always been considered the outstanding sport at North Side from the
standpoint of student interest and the annually heavy turnout for candidates for team
Great teams have come and gone at North Side, and tournaments and games have
been won and lost. Let us look at some of North's more outstanding teams. The first
squad at the tepee was composed of Penrod, Kowalczyk, Marshall, Gordon, Vail, Beverf
forden, Walsh, Koenig, McVey, and Chaflin.
The first team of championship caliber was the team that performed in the 19324933
season. These boys entered the state semiffinals or "sweet sixteen" as it was known under
the old tournament setfup. This squad lost to Martinsville, however, in that tournament.
Members of the team were Gus Lang, Bob Irons, Tom Haught, Sid Schechter, Elmer
Bloom, Bill Schafenacker, John Rieber, and Van Byrer.
The next excellent team to play for North Side was the squad that was formed for
the 19404941 season. This team went the farthest any Redskin team has gone by going
all the way to the last game of the Muncie finals before losing to Kokomo, while three
regulars sat on the bench. Members of this most famous North Side team were Bob Cowan,
Bob Young, Kay Short, Byron Popp, Norm Getting, Herm Moyer, jim Hinga, and jim
The North Side teams have been under the able tutelage of four coaches since school
opened. They have been Mark Bills, George Nulf, Robert Dornte, and Audris Buckner.
Under them the Red teams have won numerous city and sectional honors but have failed
to win the coveted state title. However, Redskin teams always have commanded respect
from any opponent whom they have played.

Above are the members ol' the newly UI'glllll.'lCCl North Side Athletic Club, This club
was organized this year to enable all lads participating in athletics to have some type

are, left to right, front row: Chambers, Etzler, Rousseau, lVlcComb, Bowser, Bartley,
Meyers, Friederich, and jordan. Second row: Rolohr, Criswold, Cattin, Heller, Con'

Today's North Side Athletic Club is the result of the iirst North Side Lettermen's
club organized at the start of athletics at North Side. The Lettermen's club became ex'
tremely active in 1930 and has played an important part in activities of the school through
The capable advisers of the club are Rolla P. Chambers, director of athletics, Audris
Buckner, Hyrle Ivy, Anthony luska, and until recent years, Miss Julia Storr. The club's
two main projects each year are a dance, held this year on December 'i after the Laporte
game, and a lettermen's banquet. Both of these affairs are looked forward to by the boys
because they oiler a social highlight amidst the hard work of the sporting season.
At the first meeting of the year, Dick Hettinger was chosen as president of the organizaf
tion while Nelson Detwiler was elected to aid him as vicefpresident. Hyrle Ivy, jr. was
placed in the post of secretaryftreasurer while lim Platt become social chairman. These
ollicers presided at all meetings for the year.
To be admitted to the Athletic Club, the boy must have trained and participated in
some athletics at North Side, and he must be accepted and initiated by the charter mem'
bers of the club.
The purpose of the Athletic hoard at North Side is to cofordinate the training, runs'
ning and financing of the athletic teams, department, and contests at school. Under the
lead of Principal lvlilton Northrop and Rolla P. Chamhers, director of athletics, this
hoard has done a fine joh throughout the years.
New memhers to he added to the hoard this year were Audris L. Buckner, head hasketf
hall coach, and Donald Kemp, assistant for track and cross country. Others who particif
pate in the hoard's activities are Noel Whitterii, tennis coach. Harry Young, assistant
haskethall coach: Anthony luska, head foothall coachg john R. Sinks, intramuralsg Leslie
Reeves, who handles the finances, and Hyrle Ivy, assistant foothall and swimming
These men are also responsihle for teaching the physical fitness classes which play
such an important part at North Side. Mi'. Chamhers, Mi'. Buckner, lvlr. .luska and Mr.
Kemp hold forth in the gymnasium while lvlr. Ivy conducts classes at the swimming pool.
These classes are required of Redskins every semester until postfgraduate time and are
looked upon with great pleasure hy the masculine students.

Although tennis is not a new sport at North Side, it has been only during the past
two years that letters have heen awarded for this activity. Under the direction of Noel
Whitterii, the tennis squad was successful this season through the fact that they did much
to popularize the sport at the tepee although they were not victorious in conference play.
The first men to receive letters for tennis were graduated in the class of 1947. They
were jim Schaherg, Larry Colip and Leonard Horne. Other letter Winners were Bill
Yahne, North Side intramural champ, and Kermit Peed, who repeated this year, Those
who earned the precious "N" for the game this year were Ellis Shookman, Dick Mc'
Dowell, .lerry Sullivan, and .lack Perfect.
Optimism runs high in the Red camp for next season as all of the lettermen except
Peed will return for next year's action. Coach Whittern has lined up a schedule includf
ing Northern Indiana Conference foes and South Side and Central. With a year of ex'
perience hehind them, the "racqueteers" should have a fine season.

Twenty years ago, when North Side was founded, the Girls' Athletic Association
made its debut. Basketball, volleyball, tennis, tumbling, track, and softball have constif
tuted the major girls' intramural activities. Under the direction of Miss Margaret Spiegel,
girls' swimming instructor who came to North Side in 1937, a water carnival is held
annually in the school swimming pool.
Betty Schoetl, a sophomore, won the girls' tennis championship this year, besting
Gerry Schweizer in a hardffought match. Volleyball and basketball fell under the domif
nance of the senior teams. Marilyn Krauss captained the volleyball squad while ,loan
Schweizer led the senior girls to basketball victory.
ln past years, boys' intramural sports consisted chiefly of a home room basketball
tourney, cross country meet, and a spring track meet. The home room net tourney bef
came known as the Leaders' Tournament. This year the A division was won by Ardie
Millers B. T. Cfs, and Bill Dailey led the Blue Comets to the B division championship.
Harold Friederich, Floyd Griswold, Kenneth Brown, lim Schlatter, and Chipper

Vxfhen North Side was opened, Miss Hilda

of them was to further school spirit towards
sports. ln 1929 Miss Katharine Rothenherger he'
came Miss Aumann's assistant. She helped in all
phases of pep sessions. Later Miss Rothenherger
took charge of decorations, cheerleaders, and pep
sessions in general. Howard T. Michaud started
cheerleaders in the system of leading yells in
rhythm. Miss Aumann took charge of sales.
Short plays were presented in which the students
participated. Student assistants helped prepare
the music and costumes. A student chairman of
pep sessions helped plan the program.

In 1946 girl cheerleaders were introduced.
Miss lvlargaret Spiegel selected their costumes.
At that time, Rutherford Sniuts, our present ad'

most outstanding pep session came with the

tendance in gym classes earns 25 points for
the student. Upon attaining a total of 400
points, the G.A.A. numerals are awarded.

The hrst senior class, that of 1928, consisted of sixtyffour
members. The combined freshman, sophomore, and junior
classes numbered five hundred thirtyfsix students. Through
the years certain traditions have been established for all the
classes, freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior. Every year
the senior class has election of ofhcers in Cctober. In Novemf
ber the two senior onefacts are given with a cast of seniors.
The annual senior banquet is held every january. The next
allfsenior event is the threefact play, given late in February.
The class Commencement is held in june. Senior Day, when
the class will is read and the valedictorian and salutatorian
speeches are given, is held the week of graduation. The plant'
ing of the class ivy is done the SHINE' day. Graduation in
June is, of course, the highlight of the year's events.
The junior Prom is the outstanding event for the juniors
and is held every May. Election of officers takes place early in
the year. The sophomoreffreshman party marks the outstandf
ing event of the underclassmen's year. The sophomores elect
their officers along with the upperclassmen, but the freshmen
choose oflicers in February.
Cetffxcquainted Day, Courtesy Week, Recognition Day,
and the Christmas play bring the classes together in work
and play. The goal of the underclassmen is to work hard
enough so that they can gain the high standards of the senior
classes that have gone before, and the goal of every senior
class is to maintain and raise the standards already established

National Honor Society
Becoming a member of the National Honor Society is one of the highest
honors that can come to a Redskin senior. Only fifteen per cent of the
seniors from the upper third of their class may be elected to the society.
The standards of the National Honor Society are very high, and the stu'
dents must fulfill and maintain these standards in order to remain a member.
Each year from the top ten per cent of the junior class, outstanding students
are elected to the organization to carry on the work the following year.

Senior Bmfvey mm' Sqmzzw
The first graduating class of North Side, that of 1928,
consisted of sixtyffour students. This year the twentieth
graduating class is made up of two hundred sixty boys and
girls who have completed their four years work at North
The four years were not all work and no play, however.
The hrst two years spent at North Side were distinguished
most by the freshmanfsophomore party. Our junior Prom
will long be remembered as one of the most beautifully dec'
orated that North Side has ever had.
Cur senior year was the most outstanding. Election of
ofhcers was held in Cctober, and we chose Howard Kahlenf
beck as president, Phil Cutman as vicefpresident, lim Shearer
as secretaryftreasurer, and Betty jo Long as social chairman.
As advisers we selected Mr. Smuts and Miss Bowen. Cur
senior banquet was held january 21 with the theme L'Cver
the Rainbow." Class prophecies, written by the senior counf
cil, were a big success. Senior Day and the class will will be
remembered long by both seniors and underclassmen. The
Commencement Dance, held June 5, was a beautiful affair
and lived up to the hopes of all. Baccalaureate, June 6, and
Commencement, june 8, will stay in our memories as a beau'
tiful ending to four years in 'LCur dear old North Side High."
