May they inspire us to greater effort in the days to come. AnfltU ' Loya y j TlPoKia ground! Flo t Tall buildings lifting their heads to the sky, Chimneys belching forth their tons of smoke; Thousands of weary-eyed laborers Who wend their way through the streets, Each yearning to reach his happy fireside. These are only a part of that great wheel—Industry. Decades and decades ago, Detroit was small and slow. Soon there were men Soon there were men Who wanted to win, And lo, industry then took hold. Quite shy and only moderately high, Dear N. E. H. S. looms in view. As chimneys give forth smoke and soot, She imparts knowledge and strength And fitness to take one’s place In that great field of—Industry. Industry be not cruel to us, Northeastern High stand back of us; Together we’ll fight, And do what is right, And soon we’ll have industry in hand.

Cooper, Publisher BASKETBALL GAME THROWN BT STARS PLAYERS NOW IN JAIL Leonard Bielawski and Stephen Vrocan were detained in the county jail here today pending investigation of charges that they threw the Northeastern-North- western basketball game played in the gymnasium of Northeastern High School on January 7, 1927. Charges are being preferred against them by Sol Poskel, who says that due to their dirty work he lost fifteen cents on the game. Mr. Poskel claims that Bielawski and Vrocan came to the game armed with pea shooters, and that whenever a North- western player tossed the ball toward the basket they would hit it with peas and deflect it from its true course. He claims that the peculiar actions of the Falcon captain, Charles “Red " Fisher, can be explained as part of the scheme. It was Fisher’s duty, he says, to eat all the peas thus shot on the floor before they were noticed there by Northwestern players or by officials. Mr. Poskel claims that many of the times Fisher was seen to sprawl out lengthwise on the floor, the sprawl was made merely in an effort to cover up his movements in picking up peas and sticking them in his mouth. Bielawski and Vrocan laugh at the charges lodged against them, and assert that Poskel is attempting to disgrace them in the public eye because they are forming plans for a bowling league which would rival that controlled by Sollie Poskel. The case will be brought before Judge Nick Mandich sometime next month. Essie Jones is attorney for the defense; Shelton Johnson for Mr. Poskel. Among those to be summoned as witnesses are: Frank Nolan, Raleigh Liimatta, Hilda Pesich, Gertrude Riemer, and Ignatius Michalski. Local Engineer to Construct Great Ocean Bridge Walter Barinoff, the famous civil engineer, left Detroit this morning for New York City, where he is completing preparations to construct a bridge across the Atlantic Ocean. Mr. Barinoff rode in his private car accompanied by his staff of six consulting engineers, including Peter Avram, Remo D’Andrea, George Dragos, John Emmert, Hiram Gilbo, and Sidney Gamble. It was explained to reporters by Mr Barinoff that although some twenty-one days will be required for preliminary arrangements’ the actual construction work can be finished within a period of forty-eight hours by means of his newly perfected method of girder suspension. ADMIRAL PARADZINSKI OFF ON BRIDAL TOUR SCHOOL DAY ROMANCE With the official military salute—the triple rifle shot—ringing loudly in their ears, Admiral Alexander Paradzinski and his blushing bride, formerly Jennie Pietrzak, left Annapolis today on a bridal tour to South Africa, where they plan to join the Rothenberg-Stegmeyer expedi¬ tion to hunt man-eating apes. The wedding ceremony which pre¬ ceded this send-off was simple and touching. The Reverend Harry Skrentner was chosen to perform the rites, after he had promised to limit his sermon to one hundred and one minutes. George Kollenberg acted as best man, and a trio of pretty girls, composed of Anna Horbush, Dorothy Howard, and Helen Inks, were bridesmaids. In an interview with Edna Brandt, a special correspondent of this paper. Admiral Paradzinski and his smiling bride revealed their marriage as the culmination of a school-day romance. The admiral said that when he had left Detroit as an Annapolis rookie, he received Jennie’s promise that if he ever became an admiral he could marry her. When asked why she chose this particular rank, Mrs. Paradzinski replied: " Why, A 1 looks just simply darling in an admiral’s suit. " “Soldiers’ Sweetheart” Thrills Audience at Orchestra Hall “The Value of the Nurse to Civiliza¬ tion and Handsome Invalids” was the title of an address delivered last night at Orchestra Hall by Miss Virginia Lake, known as “the soldiers’ sweetheart " in service hospitals throughout the country. A mob jammed the hall, and it was observed that front row seats went for as much as thirty dollars. Even as seasoned a theater goer as the reporter himself was surprised at the large number of opera glasses carried. Several people could be seen carrying large telescopes to the gallery. In her talk, which was preceded by a dance and followed up by a song, Miss Lake stressed the fact that she regretted her natural beauty inasmuch as many of the soldier boys wanted to start another war, that they might get hurt and be nursed by her. A vaudeville team composed of Viola Orchard and David Pacernack opened the evening ' s entertainment by offering a trained seal act. LOST—One bass drum, misplaced while riding down Woodward Avenue in jitney. Will be claimed on sight and no question asked. Address all replies to Albert Goodman, 759 Hendrie Street. DETROIT AIR TRAFFIC Lansing, Mich. March 19 —Drastic measures to clear the air thoroughfares of downtown Detroit of air traffic were representative R. Bartholomew Campau, of Detroit. Campau stated that to reduce the number of aeroplane collisions it would be necessary to limit the number of planes allowed in the air above the loop district between the hours of eight and five. He proposed that all parking on tops of buildings be prohibited within five miles of the city hall. Governor Dorothy Morrison approved representative Campau’s bill. She pointed out that air accidents are especially disastrous because when the planes fall they almost always wreck cars on the streets below and block up street traffic seriously. Campau’s bill, as introduced by the house air committee, is as follows: “Be It Resolved, that hereafter not more than a limited number of air vehicles such number to be determined by a special air committee to be appointed by the governor with the approval of both houses be allowed to fly above the loop district of the City of Detroit between the hours of eight, ante meridium, and five, post meridium, and “Be It Further Resolved, that parking of passenger aeroplanes on tops of build¬ ings standing within a five mile radius of the Detroit city hall, shall hereafter be prohibited.

IZZIE’S REVUE Produced by Israel Zangwell Vol. 1, No. 1. March 20, 1942 Frank E Cooper, Publisher EDITORIAL The recent protest voiced by members of the Country and City Women ' s Club through its president, Esther Fine, and it executive committee, composed of Esther Friedman, Jennie Jarecka, Jennie Kossar, and Cecile Lapides, in reference to the recent action of the mayor of this city, deserves the recommendation of all our citizens. Although, as the mayor pointed out, it is eally a crime for any one possessing no more dancing ability than Evelyn Foster to collect money from a gullible public, nevertheless the mayor went a bit too far in arresting her on a charge of defrauding the public. Of one thing however, we are sure. Miss Foster was admittedly a professional and her performance might be excused as a bit of bad work, but it should be made absolutely a crime for any amateur possessing no more ability for dancing than Miss Foster to collect money by appearing in a charity performance. We can steer clear of rotten professionals, but mercy be on those who are inveigled into attending an amateur performance. Starring MARIE GRAMZOW 11 :oo p. m.

Page Forty ' seven “The Class of June 192,7 " A PLAY IN THREE ACTS by Act. 1 : Rosena Frank, Clay McLeod, William Stearla Act. II: Kathryn Lumley, Marian Smith Act. Ill: Ruth Dodd, Edythe Upchurch Act I (Class History) Scene: Room in Betsy Barbour Dormitcry, Ann Arbor. Time: Fall of 1927. Characters: Marian Smith Kathryn Lumley As curtain rises, room is in confusion. Marian and Kathryn are seated on the bed. Marian. Gee! I’m glad we haven’t any classes today. It gives us a chance to clean up this room and get rid of some of this junk. Kathryn. Let’s try and get finished before 2:30; we ' re meeting Bob and Bill then for the game. We haven’t any time to get sentimental over old possessions Marian. Well, I’ll start on my trunk and kill two birds with one stone. I ' m sure I put that sweater in here. I can look for it and straighten up the other stuff too. (She dives into the trunk). Kathryn. And I’ll start on the stuff in this desk. (Both are active for a moment). Marian (breathlessly). Look! I found my old memory book. (She opens the book). Here’s a picture of old Northeastern. Kathryn (coming over and sitting down next to Marian). Oh! Let’s see it! Those were the happy days. (She turns over first page). Marian. Oh that awful first day! How meek and insignificant we felt! Wasn ' t that a dignity chaser for the school to have 741 puzzled freshies unloaded at their doorstep. Kathryn. Well, it wasn’t any worse for them than it was for us. We stumbled in and out of the wrong classes to the tune of the seniors’ jeers. Marian (turning a few more pages). Anyway we had the best laugh when a freshie, Minna Jenkins, got the lead in “The Nautical Knot.’’ Kathryn. And there were plenty of freshies in the choruses too. (She turns a few more pages). Look over here. I ' ll never forget the swell time we had at the Bob-Lo excur- sion. Marian (turning back). Here’s something we missed—the account of that Southeastern football game in October. Do you remember how it rained? Kathryn. Do I? I’ll say I do. I ruined a good hat, but I got plenty of school spirit. Marian. Here are our tenth grade colors, red and gray. How puffed up we felt when we organized even though all the offices went to ioA’s. What’s this? Kathryn. Don’t you remember? That’s that April Fool issue of The Review. Was that a riot? See those headlines: “Mr. Sanford Leads Double Life,’’ “Miss Plee Recommends Ten Sensational Books.” Marian. My we felt grown-up when we came back in September as juniors. The Fashion Show was the first big event of that term. Kathryn. That was my first and last appearance as a model. The next “red-circled” day on our calendar was the J-Hop. Marian. And how we talked about it for months afterwards, our first evening party! Did you like these 12B colors? When we wore them we thought we knew more than our teachers. Kathryn. Oh, I love those colors. We got them just before the big masquerade. Why, there’s a piece of my masquerade costume. How did you ever get it? Page Forty-eight Marian. Look! Falcons Down Jungaleers ! Fisher, Molenda, and Stefanslci were all on that championship team. That started our senior class off with a bang. Kathryn. That first senior meeting was rare. You couldn’t hear yourself think. But after we chose our officers, things settled down. (Seeing a Chinese lantern in the room). Say, that Chinese lantern reminds me of our Faculty Tea. Marian. Same here. The oriental spirit was abroad then, I guess. Kathryn. And our hike in the mud. Wasn’t that the berries? Marian. And here s Pomander Walk’ —What a success it was! Kathryn. It should have been after all those wild rehearsals. Marian. On the last page, our commencement program. It is a wonder I didn’t stumble up or down the steps. Kathryn. That was a wonderful night. When Mr. Novak handed me my diploma, I grabbed it before he could change his mind. Marian. And last but not least, our senior banquet, the last time we were all together. (Both gaze dreamily off into space). Kathryn. Oh, those happy days! (She glances at her watch). My dear, it’s two o’clock and look at this room! (Both girls grab their hats and rush out of the door singing “On, Northeastern! ”) Curtain Act II (Class Will) Scene: Senior meeting in the auditorium. Charles Fisher, president, conducts the meeting from the stage. Characters: Members of the senior class. Time: June, 1927. Charles Fisher: Will the meeting please come to order. The secretary will now read the minutes of the last meeting. Ruth Dodd (ascends the platform and reads): “The last meeting was conducted by the president, Charles Fisher. After dispensing with old business, new business was introduced in the form of the question ‘To whom shall we appoint the power of attorney when drawing up our last will and testament?’ A general discussion ensued, but it was finally moved and supported that Mr. Leon B. Gardner be given the power of attorney. A legal document identical with the following was therewith drawn up: ‘Know all men by these presents that we, the Senior Class of June 1927, of Northeastern High School, of the City of Detroit, County of Wayne, and State of Michigan, have made, constituted, and appointed Leon B. Gardner true and lawful attorney for us and in our name, place, and stead, to dispose of our cast off personals or other property such as accom- plishments, defects, qualifications, failures, unsatisfactory reports, and the like as he sees fit, giving and granting to our said attorney power and authority to do and perform all and every act of vengeance, whatsoever necessary or otherwise heretofore delivered upon us, unto the heads of our immediate heirs and their assigns forever. ‘In witness whereof, we have hereunto set our hand and seal the twelfth day of June, one thousand nine hundred and twenty-seven. Signed and sealed in the presence of: Martha A. Colborne. Senior Class of June 1927.’ It was then moved and supported that the drawing up of the will be postponed until the next meeting when Mr. Gardner could be present. The meeting was then adjourned”. Charles Fisher. You have heard the minutes. Are there any corrections? (Noticeable silence prevails). The minutes stand approved as read. Is there any discussion of old business? If not, we shall proceed to the business of the day. (Ruth returns to her seat.) Page Forty-nine Max Schayowitz. Mr. President, since our attorney, Mr. Gardner, is present, I move that we draw up our last will and testament. Seymour Goldstein. I second the motion. Charles Fisher. The motion has been made and seconded that we draw up our last will and testament. Is there any discussion? All those in favor signify by saying ‘aye. ' (Loud cries of “aye” are heard.) All those opposed signify by the usual sign. Markus Chovich (in a loud voice): Aye! Charles Fisher. The motion is carried. (Mr. Gardner takes seat on platform.) It is now in order for any senior to bequeath his or her property, good, bad, or otherwise, to any of his or her heirs, deserving or undeserving. Joseph LoCricchio. I, Joseph LoCricchio, leave my wandering physics book to the unlucky finder. Ask the man who owns one. Kathryn Lumley. I, Kathryn Lumley, leave my ability to study physics under the able tutelage of Mr. Edwards to Lillian MacDonald. She can’t go wrong. Louis Goralewski. I, Louis Goralewski, the Woman’s Home Companion, leave my trick suit (money back guaranteed) to Sid Heppner. Henry and William Van Looy (in unison). We, the Van Looy twins, leave our pet ambi¬ tion (that of growing whiskers like the Smith brothers) to Isadore and Willie Dubnnsky. Frieda Bassin.

Act III (Class Prophecy) Scene: The living room in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Leo Stefanski. A radio is placed at back center stage. Time: 1937. Characters: Mr. and Mrs. Leo Stefanski (nee Marion Howland), who are celebrat ng their fifth wedding anniversary. Mr. and Mrs. William Stearla (nee Kathryn Lumley). Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Molenda (nee Peggy Lavens). Friends of the Stefanskis. Mr. and Mrs. Charles Slongo (nee Carolyn Martin). Gamble—the butler. Olga—the maid. (When curtain rises Leo is discovered comfortably seated in a large arm chair, smoking a cigar and reading the evening paper.) Leo. Well, bless my soul! Marion, look here! (Marion enters and looks over Leo’s shoulder while he reads) “Marvin H. Klang and Pauline Greenwald score remarkable hit in the musical co medy ’Tell Tale Tattlers’ by Helen Stanek, now showing at the Boneff Playhouse in Pontiac. The success of the production is due in great measure to its able director, Samuel H. Steinberg. The scenery, designed by the noted artist, Catherine Hutchison, was pronounced the best she had ever seen by the able and long experienced dramatic critic, H. Joyce McCurdy.” Marion (very much interested). And to think that every one mentioned belongs to old Northeastern. I always knew old Marve, the tent maker, would come out big. That’s nifty as Tepja’ Konopka used to say. I wonder where he is now. Leo. Why didn ' t I tell you that I met him on the street the other day? He has made good in the movie business and now owns the Iris theatre. George Axelrode is his operator, and Ruth Dodd designs all the scenery. From what he said he must have a pretty nice show. We’ll drop in there some evening. Marion (Goes over and sits on arm of Leo’s chair). Only think of it, dear, it doesn ' t seem possible that we have been married five years today. Leo (teasingly). Oh, doesn’t it? Seems longer than that to me. Marion. You just must tease me eh? Better put on your coat, for the gang will soon be here. Leo (laughingly). All right! (The door bell rings. Gamble enters and opens door. Laughter is heard from out side.) Gamble. Friends to see you, sir. Leo. All right, Gamble; show them in. (Guests enter. Olga, the maid, enters to take the wraps.) Marion. Come in, folks. Welcome to our mansion on this great occasion. Stearla. Congratulations upon avoiding the divorce court for five whole years. I’ve barely escaped, but I guess I have a pretty good girlie after all. (He pats Kathryn on the back and laughs.) Page F fty ' One Kathryn. These men are such teasers. Marion. Where’s Fisher and Gladie? Didn’t they come with you? Stanley. Oh, they were supposed to, but they failed to appear. Most likely they will come later. (The telephone rings in the next room.) Gamble. Telephone, sir. Leo. All right, Gamble. (Leo exits). Peggy. By the way, folks, I have a little news to report. All. What is it? ' Peggy. I just received a letter from Lizzie Cook and she wrote that she and Constance Domalewski are partners in a beauty ship in Chicago. She also said that Kathryn Kary had become quite wealthy from the sale of a wonderful new reducing remedy which she discovered. Carolyn. How interesting! I do like to hear about our old gang. Don’t you? Leo (entering). That was Fisher. He and the Missus can’t come. All. Why not? Leo. A flat tire as usual and ’twas too late to repair it. (All laugh.) Stearla. By the way, Leo, that’s a good looking radio. Does it work well? Leo. I should say. I’ll turn it on and see what we can get. (He tunes in.) Marion. Oh, listen—a familiar voice. Peggy. I do believe that’s Meyer Budman’s voice announcing. He does it well. What is he saying? Voice. Walter West and his celebrated jazz band will now play for you. (All listen.) Kathryn. That’s keen. I hope he plays some more. Stearla. Let’s try another station. Oh, here we are, another old classmate. Voice over the radio. Miss Rosena Frank will now entertain the kiddies with a bedtime story. Carolyn. Well, this seems to be class reunion night. Let’s count up and see how many of the gang we can account for at present. Marion. All right. Leo, please turn off the radio for a while so we can talk. Leo. Yes, dear. Marion. I know about several. Mary Textor and Markus Chovich are playing opposite one another in leading roles in the Bonstelle Playhouse. Mary was always especially adapted to that sort of thing. And Dorothy Lashuay married a distinguished doctor in St. Louis. Kathryn. Did you know that Sabina Zukowska is grade room principal of Portia House and that Evangeline Witkowski is working for the Free Press in the school news department. Gwendoline Dellar is teaching physics in Highland Park High. Peggy. Really? Imagine Gwendoline teaching physics! Let’s radio some more. Leo (goes to the radio and turns it on). Oh, boy, here’s where we listen to a fiddling contest. Voice from the radio. The next contestant is Bronislaus Kudialis, who will play the old time song ’Baby Face.’ (All laugh and Leo swings Marion around a time or two.) Leo. Let’s dance and celebrate the occasion. Carolyn. That’s right. Talking about the old gang made me forget that it is your wedding anniversary. Marion. Well, just come with me to the dining room and I’ll show you that I haven’t forgotten.

They have not only retained a high scholarship record but have placed higher in athletics than they have other years. Three Loyalty girls showed their dramatic ability by taking leading parts in “The Boomerang,” the January ’27 senior play. Virginia Lake was the heroine, Violet Finkbeiner, her rival, and Helen Inks, mother of the hero. Entertainments at record have been more interesting and have been enjoyed more fully this year after the purchase of a piano. This afforded occasional solos by Howard C. Porter, Claire Hammack, Walter West, and others. An interesting program was given the day before Christmas vacation. Howard and Robert Hutchison, brothers of Catherine Hutchison, provided entertainment by playing the harmonica and ukelele. The Dramatic Club has been reorganized and has been very active. One of the inter¬ esting programs they have given was a telephone dialogue by Mary Textor and Marion Howland. Another play given before the house was “The Cockroach Trap,” featuring the entire Dramatic Club. The following were officers this last term: Esther Textor.... . __President Marion Howland_ Vice-President Caroline Martin. .Secretary and Treasurer As Valentine day came so near the beginning of the term the senior girls used this day to welcome the freshies. They did this by giving each one of them a Valentine. Loyalty won first place in the girls interhouse indoor meet and second place in the interhouse swimming races. The girls who were on the team were E. Jessome, K. Konopka, M. Kutcher, A. Left, C. Molenda, R. Mohaupt, S. Nastaj, B. Norman, and A. Ryckman. Swimmers in the novice meets were L. Joseph, K. Kanis, V. Klipper, M. Lalich, M. Lip- schitz, M. Loudon, J. Nowakowska, A. Oleszkiewicz, D. Pelton. The board committee worked diligently this last term and the result found Loyalty’s boards artistically adorned with their new colors, red and grey. Helena Mieszczynski was chairman of the board committee. Page Fifty ' six I Fall Term Office Spring Term Marvin Klang .. President_Marvin Klang A 1 Milanki .

Athletic Manager .James Michalski Capturing the scholarship cup for the final marking of the fall semester, Angell House gained permanent possession of it. To gam permanent ownership of the cup a house must have the highest scholarship record for four successive markings. Albert A. Graham, graderoom principal, left last September to accept the position of principal in the Washington Elementary School. Clarence H. Hiller, formerly a member of the Exact Science department, took his place. Mrs. Kate M. Johnstone was appointed to assist Mr. Hiller in his work. Angell completed its football season tying with Democracy and Webster. Due to superiority in speed and passing on the part of the Democrats, Angell placed third in the basketball tourneys. An Angellite swimming team has recently been organized. James Michalski is captain. The members are: Joe Koss, Douglas Maples, George McDonald, Boris Nickoloff, Milton Levin, John Nowakowski, and Walter Ohm. The boys will practice in the pool before they enter any contests. A piano fund for the house was founded during the latter part of December. Mr. Hiller and Mrs. Johnstone started the fund. They each contributed five dollars. The boys hope to raise enough money with which to buy a piano. On December 23 the Angellites gave a house Christmas party at which candy and apples were distributed. Admission was ten cents. During the fall term George H. Baker, sponsor of the Hi-Y Club, and John Korolishin of the Exact Science department spoke to the boys during record. Mr. Korolishin spoke on “Music Appreciation.” His lecture was accompanied by several selections on the phonograph. Mr. Baker’s topic was “Character.” He spoke about building a character, and also brought out the fact that a high school education is of great value in building up your character. Mrs. Johnstone has started a system of taking record during each hour of the day. This system will be carried on during the next semester. The house colors are blue and white. Morris Kaufmann, who left Northeastern to reside in Chicago, did all the lettering previous to this time. Herman Hampel has taken his place.

Irma Zech Treasurer Freda Tapler Social Secretary Marian Smith Corresponding Secretary Edythe Upchurch “Work and you shall reap the profits of your labor” seems to have been the motto of the Portia mterhouse basketball team in its fight for the interhouse championship this season. For several years the team worked very hard to attain that goal but it was not until this year that they reached the height of their desire. The house was presented a banner. Mattie Tilson was captain of the team. The other members of the team were: Sabina Tingle, Erma Smith, Bertha Sullivan, Ethel Turner, and Mabel Proctor. Due to the illness of Genevieve M. Sheehan, graderoom principal, the girls have been under the supervision of a substitute most of the time. Upper class girls helped to keep the house in order. So far, the girls have been making an effort to improve their scholarship. The Portiaites took sixth place in the race for the cup the first card marking. However, there is an earnest attempt on the part of both the girls and the principal to raise the scholarship standard. Lillian M. Hodge, assistant librarian, was chosen to sponsor the Portia Dramatic Club which has been reorganized this semester. The club holds its meeting every other Monday, and has a membership of about fifteen girls. Johanna Truskowsky is president, Ida Shnider- man vice-president, Rose Zeiden secretary, and Virginia Stewart treasurer. The club presented two plays during the latter part of the semester. Nor has Portia house been left behind in the purchasing of a piano. Each girl was requested to pay five cents a week for three weeks in order to pay for the instrument. It was delivered early this semester. Taking over part of the old Roman custom of observing St. Valentine’s day, a box trimmed in red and white paper served as the container for all messages of the day. A few days previous to the occasion slips were drawn and each girl purchased a valentine greeting for the girl whose name she drew. Ten cent gifts were distributed in the same manner at Christmas time. Mary A. Sparling and Mrs. Deora W. Brokaw of the music department lead the girls in community singing during records every Monday. Page Fifty-eight Fall Term Office Spring Term Charles Fisher_ President Markus Chovich Markus Chovich ViceTresident... ......... Sidney Gamble Burgell Baker_ Secretary ' Treasurer William Briggs With the assistance of Fred J. Mulder of the exact science department as coach, the Democracy cagers took first place honors in the interhouse basketball championship tourneys. Charles Fisher was captain of the house football team. The games played in this series resulted in a deadlock between the three houses. Due to the lack of material, the Democrats’ swimming team trailed behind the other two houses in the water meets. Even though the boys have endeavored to raise their scholastic standing, they have not yet been able to wrest the scholarship cup from the Angellites. During the past year Democracy has taken second or third place in the final standings. James Danisio, Stephen Doski, Rudolph Glowacke, Abe Goldman, and Robert Grace are some of Democracy’s star pupils. Miss Sparling lead the boys in group singing during both records every Tuesday. Several interesting programs were given by Joe Fava and Joe Boback on their banjos. Louis Cervenak also played cornet solos. At the present time, Democracy has enrolled among its numbers some of the most prominent people in the school. It has in its midst Charles Fisher, president of the June graduating class and captain of the basketball team; Joseph Chodupski, president of the Student Council; Markus Chovich, captain of the football squad; and Abe Goldman, sport editor of The Review. Leonard Bielawski and Robert Cooper, presidents of the January 12A class and the FRY club respectively, were also members of the house. In addition, the Democrats are well represented on the business staff of The Review. Meyer Budman, Seymour Goldstein, Henry Lriedman, Hilbert Appel, Albert Bortman, and Julius DeMunnik are members of the business staff.

Frieda Bassin, president at that time, welcomed the new¬ comers. Poems which aimed to bring out the beauty in work, play, and life in general were read by several of the officers. Jane Addams House received a loving cup, for both the House senior swimming team and the novice team defeated Loyalty and Portia in all the water events. Mary Belger, Belle Hofer, Constance Domaleski, and Elizabeth Cook starred for their house, and helped to bring it th at honor. The cup was presented by Alta Knips of the health education department. Mrs. Laura H. Chynoweth was also present on the occasion. First place honors in the interhouse basketball tourneys were also won by the house team after they had defeated Portia and Loyalty. In accordance with its custom of previous years at Christmas time, the girls decorated a Christmas tree and donated some canned food. This was given to a needy family whose name was suggested by one of the girls. Several of the girls have organized a jazz orchestra. Ruth Dodd plays the piano; Belle Hofer, the banjo; Elizabeth Cook and Constance Domaleski, ukeleles; Wanda Ferszt and Katie Bodrojan, violin. Their first appearance before the house was at the freshman initiation. Page Sixty Wee s i-io Office William Stegmeyer_President..

About four hundred girls and boys were present. George H. Baker of the Social Science department and Eryl W. Rainey of the Exact Science department represented the faculty. Cass Wagner was the business manager of the frolic. William Stegmeyer and Helen Stanek were in charge of the refreshments. Frieda Tapler, Sabina Zukowski, and Harry Skrentner arranged the entertainment. Among the Websterite all “A” students during the term were Leslie Timonen, editor- in-chief of The Review and sport editor of The Crucible; Gregory Skully, who was sec¬ retary-treasurer and student council representative of the house; and Michael Radowiec, president of the ninth grade. The Webstentes held their annual Christmas party .the afternoon of December 23. William Schweitzer was Santa Claus, and distributed several ten cent joke gifts. The other boys received an apple and some Christmas candy. A t the beginning of the current semester, the boys chose the motto, “While there ' s life there ' s hope”. Fortune Sullo suggested the quotation. The interhouse basketball team ended their season by taking second place. James Popovich, Marvin Thiery, James Pulcher, Victor Ulewicz, and Jerome Szymaszek played on the heavyweight team. John Sombrowski, Norman Szeszycki, Edward Swiecikowski, Edward Wojtka, and Henry Siegel were the members of the light weight team. With the assistance of Oliver E.

Typists___ Helena Barber Ethylene Johnston Page Sixty-saen As every one knows The Review and The Crucible staff members work tirelessly in their efforts to reach perfection. Undoubtedly they are the busiest people in the school. Besides putting out the paper, the editorial staff of The Review wrote a large part of the material for The Crucible. However, the hard work has not been in vain. The 1926 Crucible was awarded first class rating in the Central Interscholastic Press Association contest, held at Madison, Wisconsin, last year. Since no other high school yearbook in Michigan received the same rating, the 1926 Crucible was the best in the state. Two honor cups were brought home from the Michigan Interscholastic Press Associa- tion convention held at Ann Arbor this year. The 1926 yearbook won a cup for again being judged the best high school annual in Michigan. The Review was awarded second place among the bnweekly papers. However, the highest honor offered at the contest came to Northeastern. This was a Sweekstakes Cup, awarded for one year to the school having made the highest number of honor points in the rating of its publications. Ten students, representatives of both The Review and The Crucible staffs, attended the three day convention. At the beginning of the current semester more than the usual changes took place on The Crucible and The Review staffs. Ann J. Kolmesh became sponsor of publications replacing Martha A. Colborne, who was promoted to the principalship of Loyalty House. A double celebration was held in The Review office the day before Christmas vacation. This was a Christmas-birthday party celebrating the eighth birthday of The Review. The guests spent part of their time playing progressive bunco. Joke gifts were then distributed, and an informal supper was held in the adjoining room. David Goldstein donated a large birthday cake for the occasion. After the supper, the students attended the alumni basketball game which was played in the gymnasium that evening. The annual Review banquet, at which old and new members were present, was held in January. Many alumni were also present. The theme of the banquet was based on piracy. Frank Cooper acted as toastmaster. Those who responded to toasts were Mrs. Vera Burridge Baits, first sponsor of The Review, Marion Robins, David Goldstein, Leo Stefanski, Claire Hammack, Martha A. Colborne, and Ann J. Kolmesh. Special souvenir programs were printed for the occasion. Dancing to the music of an orthophonic victrola completed the program. Two theater parties were held last winter by the editorial staff, one at the Broadway Strand Theater, the other at the Bonstelle Playhouse. The editorial staff was host at two teas during the year. One of them was held to acquaint the business staff and the new reporters with the members of the editorial staff. Hi ' Press members throughout the city were the guests at the second tea. A wiener roast at Belle Isle and a picnic at Bobdo were also on the early summer program. The girls on the editorial staff have made uniform smocks to be worn while at work in the office.

Each year adds many more to the membership of the Alumni Association, and each year it has become a larger and more active body. It has today noo members, some of Northeastern most prominent and talented students who are thus enabled to keep in touch with their school after graduation. Officers are elected once a year. A business meeting is held at that time, but the officers meet once a month at 521 Lafayette Building where they plan the doings of the club. The big affair of this year was a party at the Wardell to which the faculty and seniors of the school were invited. The party was sponsored by Mr. and Mrs. Charles M. Novak, Lila E. Fyan, Mr. and Mrs. Henry N. Eddy, Marguerite C. Kolb, Mr. and Mrs. William D. Johnstone, H. Joyce McCurdy, and Ann Shaw. It was a delightful and finished party and much credit is due the committee in charge, Celestine Minard, chairman; Genevra Braun, Hazel Romaine, Claricy Wooliver, Shirley King, and Leona Heppner. A member of the association, Leokadya Popowska, now a senior at the University of Michigan, who attended the party at the Wardell, became well-known over night when she received the Harper Intercollegiate Literary Prize of 1927. The prize was $500. Her story “The Living Sand” was based on a recollection of her life in Poland. Miss Popowska who was graduated in 1919 was a member of Jane Addams. She acted as literary editor on The Crucible Staff of 1918. Among the alumni there are many other promising members which we have not time to relate now. The last social event of this term was a moonlight, June 11, to which students from all the high schools and colleges in the city were invited.

Activities Largely through the efforts of the Student Council several changes have been made in Northeastern’s routine during the past year. One of the first things which it accomplished in the fall was the passing of a bill stating that students need not clear the dishes from their trays in the lunchroom. The plan proved very popular among the pupils. Although the Council is an organization whose work is of a more or less serious nature, the club did not fall short in social activities during the last year. It had a Class Day dance on Friday, February 4, which was the first of its kind to be held in Northeastern. The purpose of the affair was to do away with the feeling of class rivalry which has recently developed. It also aided in acquainting the Freshmen with the upper classmen. The proceeds of the dance were given to The Crucible fund. The council members also had a stunt at the carnival held last fall. It consisted of a freak orchestra in which about ten students took part. Admission was five cents. Due to lack of funds, the Student Council was obliged to distribute mimeographed sheets to the freshmen this semester instead of the usual twenty-page booklet, “The Freshman Guide.’’ Page Seventy Top Row, left to right —Joseph Levandowski, Sam Steinberg, Edwin Luciewicz, John Holko, Walter Gregory, Joseph Chodupski, Dan Koseff, John Meyer.

Activities To help the boys determine their responsibilities as they face the problems of life was the main purpose of the State Older Boys ' Conference held in Jackson, Michigan, Novem¬ ber 26-2,8 inclusive. The boys sent three delegates, W. Barinoff, E. Coesfeld, and L. Elichek, to the conference. During the year the Hi-Y had many interesting programs for which good speakers were provided. Among the speakers were John Kuhn of the exact science department, who delivered a talk on the Rotary Club; J. H. Fowler, executive secretary of the Boys’ Branch of the Young Mens’ Christian Association, who spoke about the economic, political, and social conditions of India, and Robert D. Williams, the exact science department, who gave a very interesting talk on his trip to Europe last summer. Several luncheons, banquets, and hikes were enjoyed during the year. The boys also served at the Girl Reserve Banquet. The Hi-Y has just completed the third year of successful organization. Page Seventy ' One Librarians Aniela Poray, Head Lillian M.

She was presented with a bouquet of flowers by Elizabeth Scharmann, who was in charge of the banquet. Besides the senior banquet, the girls enjoyed a Christmas party which was a great success. Marian Smith was chairman of the committee. A joint picnic with the Royal Oak Library Staff was also an incident which left pleasant memories in the girl’s minds. Marian Smith was social secretary of the staff for the fall term, and Helena Mieszczynski for the spring term. Under the auspices of the library staff, a ninth hour poetry class was organized. It consisted of a group of people who liked to analyze and write poetry. At the end of the term a prize was awarded for the best poem written. The work of the course is divided into four sections. Junior credit is given for library (1) and (2), and senior credit is given for library (3) and (4). The training that the student receives in the library fits him for a position as a page in a branch library. In trying to familiarize the students with books in the library and give better service to the readers, the library staff has spent a very busy year.

With a membership of one hundred, the club has had a very successful year. Two members were sent to the Summer Conference at Camp Gray, Saugatuck, Mich., and four delegates attended the Mid-winter Conference at Bay City. During the first semester the program was based on the things contained in “Life’s Treasure Chest.” World fellowship, health, and child labor, were some of the requisites of “Life’s Treasure Chest” around which the idea of the meetings was centered. A hike at Belle Isle, was planned for the early part of last September, but due to rain an indoor picnic was held instead. “Tapestry” was selected as the theme for the spring semester. Several meetings were devoted to outside speakers who talked on subjects of interest to Girl Reserves. A song meeting and a discussion of Girl Reserve Ideals were also held. At the annual High School Girl Reserve Banquet, held at the Highland Park Masonic Temple in March, the Northeastern Girls Club was judged to have the best exhibit of club posters, and was also given second place in the song contest. The service work for the year was done during the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons. For Thanksgiving the members of the club contributed two baskets of groceries and clothing to a poor family. At Christmas the girls sent thirty gifts to the Indian children in New Mexico. At the semi-annual Honor Court held in January, Catherine Dzuriewicz, Kathryn Lumley, Anna Horbush, Esther Friedman, and Viola Orchard received honor rings. This is the highest honor any Girl Reserve can attain. Page Seventyahree N or-E-Krafters Fall Term Offices Spring Term Frieda Bassin_President_Caroline Gries Dorothy Wheeler.

Activities This organization was founded in 1920 for the purpose of promoting an interest in art in the school as well as in the club itself. Virginia M. Jackson, of the art department, spon¬ sors the club. The members meet every week on Wednesday the ninth and tenth hours and are given one hours credit for their work. Dying scarves, painting sewing baskets, trays, door stops, book ends, greeting cards and mottoes are some of the craft work which they learn. A set of twelve colorful plates called “Variations by Benedictus” was purchased by the Krafters and is to be used in suggesting color schemes in the art classes. The girls’ social calendar of the year consists of the following events: On October 22 and 23, the Krafters conducted a booth and sold novelties at the Alumni Carnival. The girls dressed in different costumes and mixed with the crowds, selling balloons, whistles, confetti and blow-outs. On November 4 a weenie roast was held at Belle Isle. Although the weather was cool, the girls played tag and ran races to keep warm. A delightful costume party was held in the art room, December 22. Catherine Hutchison acted as a jolly old Santa and distributed the gifts to each member. To get acquainted with the new members, the girls gave a Valentine Party, February 11. Frieda Bassin acted as mailman and gave out valentines. Alice Antich won a prize for drawing a heart on paper blindfolded.

At present about eight girls and the same number of boys are members of the club. At the meetings each member is known by the name of the State he has chosen. Its aims are to encourage and develop the oratorical, debating, and declamatory ability of its members. Oratorical contests are held once a month. The victorious orator is presented with a gavel. The other meetings are given over to debates on topics of the day or declamation contests. The Debates and Bills Committee chooses one of these for each meeting. In its executive work, the organization is closely modeled on the National House of Representatives. It has a Speaker, Clerk, Treasurer, Sergeant at Arms, and the various committees: Ways and Means, Fines, Membership, Press, Debates and Bills, and any other special committees that are deemed necessary. This year the club sent several of its members who won out in the school finals tc the oratorical contest sponsored by the Detroit News and the Michigan Association of Oratory. Morris Lipshy was chosen school champion and took third place in the sub ' district finals held at Highland Park High School. Aside from these strictly executive duties, the members have also enjoyed several hikes at Belle Isle.

The play was staged, under the direction of H. Joyce McCurdy of the language department, in the school auditorium, Friday and Saturday evenings, December io and n. The chief cause of the merriment was Richard Campau, playing the part of a lovesick youth whose amorous attentions seemed to be utterly disregarded by the object of his affection, Vlolet Finkbeiner. Thus afflicted he became the first patient of Leonard Bielawski, a fashionable young doctor. Leonard’s antics and manner of curing Richard produced gales of laughter. Leonard was charmingly supported by Virginia Lake, as his pretty nurse. Virginia’s performance was delightful. The ease and charm with which she portrayed her part contributed much to the success of the play. Page Eighty-four Helen Inks was effectively cast as Mrs. Woodbridge, the lady of leisure. The pert modern flappers were represented by Dorothy De Beauclair and Marie Gramzow. Their witty remarks were always waited for and welcomed. The unpopular character in the play was played by Gordon Rothenberg. His smooth attempts to ingratiate himself with every one to further his own ends were realistic. William Stegmeyer was a very dignified butler and Remo D’Andrea, an excitable French valet. Harry Skrenter, known for his lengthy speech, was the cause of unexpected chuckles. When playing the part of the invalid, he was unusually quiet. The costumes did much to brighten the play. The girls in their fluffy little frocks and evening wraps were a colorful and a pretty sight. The boys in their tuxedoes looked very much the gentlemen of leisure they represented. Roy H. Gould and his stagecraft boys, who had charge of the lighting and the scenery, are to be commended for the delightful effects they produced.

Joyce McCurdy directing. It was supported by an exceptionally fine cast, a strong business staff and an artistic stagecraft committee. Among the principal actors and actresses much credit was due, Irene Coppock, as the leading lady, Marjolaine Lachesnais, Sophie Tingle who played the part of Mrs. Poskett, Marvin Klang, the old sailor, Sir Peter Antrobus, and Leo Stefanski as Lord Otford. Steve Boneff and Charles Slongo were to be commented in their portrayal of the olr’of hero. Markus Chovich did justice to his part as the “city toastmaster,” while Israel Udowsky and Stanely Molenda played their character roles in admirable fashion. Kathryn Lumley was lovely in the role of matron. She had a charming little French maid in Margaret Smith, as Nanette. The two spinister sisters, Barbara, and Ruth played by Catherine Hutchison and Ruth Rodda on Friday evening, and by Mary Textor and Caroline Martin on Saturday evening, acted their parts cleverly. The Honorable Caroline Thring who was Olga Mokrovich created much amusement with her haughty and condescending air. Last of all and not least were Jim, played by Charles Fisher, The Muffin Man, played by Meyer Budman, and The Lamplighter, played by William Schweitzer. Jim with his sailor walk and talk caused many a chuckle while The Muffin Man, the red headed Meyer Budman sold his wares with great success. The Lamplighter put out the lights as soon as the moon came out, and finished by stealing Jack’s victuals. But The Eyesore was in every act, never said a word, fished constantly and finally threw Mrs. Poskett’s cat into the water. Page Eighty ' seven Of the various activities of the year the exhibit which the Nor ' E ' Krafters held on May 19 was one of the most outstanding. Through the efforts of Virginia M. Jackson, under whose direction the exhibit was held, the girls secured from the Florentine Shop some lovely material for the exhibit. Large size battics from India covered the walls of the art room. In contrast with these were some charming original colored etchings designed by Simon and Kasanir, Czechoslovakian artists. These formed an interesting background for the variety of vases which were displayed. These included Spanish and Italian Majolica vases. Some copper bowls from Italy and antique lustre wear from Mexico also helped to make the exhibit an interesting one. Several pieces of Guodalahra ware from Mexico was on display. Brass ware from Russia and a copper tea-pot from Poland were included in the exhibit. Chinese Cloissines filled with lovely flowers added a finishing touch to the exhibit.

Coaches Sandall and Brown were forced to decide between a light fast team or a heavy slow team; the team that took the held was of the light artillery type. Jupiter Pluvius again wreaked havoc with the Falcons’ hopes this year. All the games were played on rain-soaked gridirons. There follows a brief summary of each game played: Redford o—Northeastern o September 25 In the opening game of the season, Northeastern revealed a defensive and offensive star in Fortune Sullo. Due to the steady line-plunging of “Red” Simmons, Red and Gray halfback, Redford outplayed the Falcons in the first half. The Green and Gold warriors reversed their offensive tactics in the second half and maintained the pigskin in their opponents’ territory. Eastern o—Northeastern o October 2 Eastern’s heavy line and backfield proved too much for the Falcons, and only by Sullo’s broken field running and fine intercepting of the Indians’ numerous passes were the Green and Gold gridders able to hold the Orange and Black to a scoreless tie. Central 6—Northeastern 2 October 22 Northeastern’s hopes for placing among the first in the race for interscholastic gridiron honors were shattered when the Trailblacers humbled the Falcon eleven on a muddy field, 6-2. The Grandy gridders began the game like state champions. By a series of line bucks and passes, the Falcons forced the Blue and White to their four yard line. After losing the pigskin on downs, Michalak, Falcon end, tackled Phillips, Central halfback, behind the goal posts for a safety. The Green and Gold offense collapsed in the second quarter; Greenwald, Central halfback, snared a Falcon pass and ran twenty yards for a touchdown. Northern o—Northeastern 6 Page T inety ' One October 30 Fortune Sullo, Falcon veteran quarterback, proved a veritable Nemesis for the unbeaten Eskimo gridmen. “Tony,” with seven successive end runs and line plunges early in the second quarter, carried the oval from Northeastern’s forty ' five yard line to the Eskies’ one foot strip where he plunged over for the winning tally. The Blue and Red spurted in the third quarter and advanced to the Falcon twenty yard line. Bielawski, Northeastern end, snatched an Eskimo fumble and sprinted across four stripes before being tackled. Hamtramck o—Northeastern o November 6 Although they were greatly outweighed both in the backfield and in the line, the Falcons revealed their real mettle by holding the Cosmos to a scoreless tie. The Green and Gold players were supreme in the first three quarters. Hamtramck was penalized for a total of eighty yards. Southeastern 25—Northeastern o November 13 Southeastern’s veteran eleven continued on its way down the victory-strewn path of glory by trampling on the weak but game Falcon team in the last game of the season. During the first two minutes of play the spirited Jungaleers shattered the Green and Gold line for five successive first downs. Russell scored the initial touchdown. Northeastern offered plenty of sturdy opposition. On the next kickoff Fortune Sullo, behind almost faultless interference, dashed fifty yards before being downed. The Purple and White recovered a Falcon fumble and by a series of end runs carried the ball to the two yard line where Schram scored a touchdown. The Purple and White were held scoreless in the second period. Brown sphered a Falcon heave late in the third quarter and ran sixty ' five yards for a third touchdown. Briggs intercepted another Green and Gold toss in the final period and sprinted fifty yards for the last tally.

The final standings were as follows: Team Won Lost Tied Pet. Pts. Webster. i i 2 .500 4 Democracy.... 1 1 2 .500 4 Angell_ 1 1 2 .500 4 As a result of the tie, each house was awarded 16 2-3 points toward winning the boys interhouse athletic championship. Clarence W. Beeman, boys intramural athletic director, also presented each house with a picture of its team, since each had an equal claim to the title. The opening contest of the schedule was a bitterly fought one and ended in a 7 7 dead ' lock between Angell and Democracy. In the second combat, Angell emerged victorious over the Webster gridders by a decisive i3 ' 0 score. The next scheduled tilt showed that the Websterites had improved considerably since the beginning of the season for they held the strong Democrat eleven to a scoreless tie. Democracy blanked the Angell balk toters 3 ' 0 in the next contest. The fifth game found Webster and Angell in a scoreless tie at the final gun. The last and deciding game of the season found Webster holding the key as to who would be the title holder. If it could defeat the strong Democrat team, all three houses would be tied for the championship. On the other hand, if the game ended in either a tie or a Democrat victory, the Democrats would gain undisputed possession of the title. The Websterites proved equal to the task and emerged victorious by a i4 ' 2 score. At the end of the season, Mr. Beeman, with the assistance of the various house coaches, Joseph L. Walsh, of Angell, Harley G. Wilson of Webster, and Robert D. Williams of Democracy chose a mythical albstar house football team. Democracy and Angell each had four players on the honor team; Webster had three. William Stegmeyer of Webster and Carl Ekstrom, a Democrat who was picked for the star team the year before also, were honored with the end positions. George Greenwood of Democracy, who was picked for tackle the year before, was again given the same position. The other tackle berth was won by Walter Strauss of Webster. William Briggs of Demc ' cracy and Walter Konopka of Angell received the guard positions. Alex Milanki of Angell easily won the center berth. Charles Fisher of Democracy was chosen the best quarterback. Robert Johnson of Angell and Norman Schmidt of Webster were awarded the halfback positions. George Parssinen of Angell received the fullback berth. At the close of the season Mr. Beeman said that it was undoubtedly the most successful boys interhouse football program that had ever been carried through in Northeastern.

Northeastern vs. Eastern October 7, 1926 Northeastern’s girls hockey team defeated Eastern i-o in its inaugural game of the season at Belle Isle. Captain Mattie Tilson, star Falconette center forward, scored the solitary field goal of the game in the second quarter. The Green and Gold with its veteran team completely outplayed the Orange and Black eleven. Coach Murphy’s team lasted through ' out the game. The Falconette forwards were more experienced and consequently fleeter. Eva Davis played a good defensive game at goal. Northeastern vs. Southeastern October 14, 1926 The girls hockey team went down to defeat before the strong Southeastern team 5 ' 0, at Belle Isle. The victors displayed good team work and dribbled, passed, and shot for goals well. Wineta McDowell, left wing, and one of Southeastern’s three veterans, led the scoring with three goals. Mattie Tilson, Falconette captain, and Mattie Hill were alert on the defensive. Northeastern vs. Hamtramck October 22, 1926 The girls hockey team again nosed out a victory at the expense of the Hamtramck girl eleven i ' 0, in a game marked by the exceptional playing of Captain Mattie Tilson, a wearer of the Green. The game was played on a field of mud. By engineering some accurate passes and dabs, the Falconettes were able to secure a scoring position. Northeastern vs. Northern October 27, 1926 Falconette hope of attaining a high average in the Greater Detroit high school girls field hockey league was somewhat dimmed when Northern held Northeastern to a i ' i tie at Northwestern field. The game was unique in that both captains, Mattie Tilson of Northeastern and Katherine Grey of Northern, made the only goals of the game. Northeastern vs. Central November 4, 1926 Northeastern successfully closed its girls field hockey season by humbling Central 4 ' 2, at Belle Isle. Captain Mattie Tilson was again the star of the game. She scored three of the four field goals for Northeastern. Elizabeth Duncan, right wing, scored the fourth goal. Page Ninety-five Page Js[inety-six Northeastern enjoyed its most successful basketball season as far as city cage title honors are concerned. The Falcons played their first game at Royal Oak and lost 18-13. The substitutes played the first three quarters and when the regulars were sent in it was too late to stem the tide. The Green and Gold had no trouble in winning the second pre-season tilt from Plymouth, 39-20. In the last game before the regular season the Falcons lost to the Alumni, 4°-3r. A short summary of the regular season games follows: Northeastern vs. Northwestern January 7 In the first game of the regular city schedule Northeastern showed its strength by subju¬ gating their old rival, Northwestern, by the decisive score of 26-10. Northeastern vs. Redford January 14 Redford proved easy for the Northeastern five and was continually under a barrage of baskets that found them on the tail-end of a top-heavy 45-10 score. Northeastern vs. Southeastern January 21 The Falcons further demonstrated their worth when they defeated the Jungaleers, city and state title holders of 1925 and 1926, after a hard battle, 37-32. Northeastern vs. Southwestern January 25 The Falcons were on the winning end of a 34-22 score in their game against the Prospec¬ tors after four quarters of rather slow play. Northeastern vs. Western January 28 Northeastern’s attack proved too fast for Western, and the Cowboys were swamped under a shower of baskets, the score being 35-9. Northeastern vs. Cass February 4 The Mechanic basketeers bowed to the Falcons by a 38-15 score. Northeastern vs. Central February 8 Northeastern was more than the Central cage men could handle and consequently the Trailblazers lost, 31-15. Northeastern vs. Commerce February n The league leading Falcons continued merrily on their way to the championship by overwhelming the Auditors, 45-10. Northeastern vs. Hamtramck February 18 Hamtramck pulled the biggest upset of the season when it broke Northeastern’s string of nine consecutive victories. The Cosmos trailed until late in the third quarter; then they forged ahead and kept the lead throughout the remainder of the contest. The final score was 28-19. Page Ninety ' seven ( Continued) Northeastern vs. Highland Park February 22 The Polar Bears put up a plucky battle against the Falcons but were not equal to the task of repeating what the Cosmos had done. The outcome of the game was in doubt until the final period when the Falcons let loose an attack that found the Bears on the small end of a 29-22 score. Northeastern vs. College High February 25 The Green and Gold barely eked out a 23-19 victory. The second string men were sent in to start the fray and played the first half. The score at the half was 15-5 in the Collegians’ favor. The Falcon regulars, however, speedily overcame the lead that their opponents held. Northeastern vs. Northern March 4 With Leo Stefanski out of the game with an injured knee, the Green and Gold team’s teamwork did not function as smoothly as usual. The Eskimos were not slow in taking advantage of the fact, and won 37-26. They took the lead in the second quarter and never relinquished it thereafter. CITY SERIES GAMES Northeastern vs. Southwestern March 11 The Falcons advanced a notch toward the city title when they repeated their performance of the regular season against the Prospectors and defeated them, 34-21. Northeastern vs. Southeastern March 12 The end of the next round of games found the three leaders, Northeastern, Northern, and Northwestern, all tied for first place. For, while Northeastern was taking Southeastern in hand, by a decisive 26-9 score, Northwestern gave Northern its second setback of the season, 15-14. Northeastern vs. Northwestern March 18 The Falcons broke the Colts’ winning streak which had extended to thirteen successive victories. The final score was 23-14. This victory gave the Falcons a tie for the city title with the Eskimos, as Northern won its game from the Jungaleers. Due to the fact that the state tournament was only a week off, there was no play-off. Both Northeastern and Northern won fourteen games and lost two. STATE TOURNAMENT Northeastern vs. Muskegon March 24 Northeastern drew the strong Muskegon five as its opponents for the first round of the state tourney. The Falcons started off at a fast pace which found them leading at the end of the first period, 11-5. In the next quarter the Muskies hit their stride and assumed the lead and were never threatened after that. The final score was 44-15. Everyone of the five regulars received some mention for the coaches’ all-city five. Milanki was chosen forward on the first team; Fisher and Stefanski placed on the second team, as a forward and center, respectively; Molenda and Schmidt received honorable mention for guard positions. A 1 Milanki also placed on The Times’ all-state second team as a forward.

Outclassing their rivals throughout the season, Democracy House captured the boys interhouse basketball championship. The Democrats dropped only two of their games; Webster, the runner up, was conquered in fcur contests; and Angell, the tail ender, failed to win a single game in the official standings. They were victorious in three games, but these were forfeited b ecause of the presence of ineligible players in the line-up. The Democrats lightweights were the main factors in the victorious team’s success, going through the entire schedule without being extended in any game. This was due mainly to the combined efforts of Futch and Duzynski, the leading lightweight scorers. The Democracy heavyweights also enjoyed a successful season, their two setbacks being only a matter of a few points in each game. In addition, it placed two men on the all-house team. Three lightweights were honored on the all house lightweight five. The all house teams chosen by the mentors of the teams, Fred J. Mulder of Democracy, Seymour H. Brown of Angell, and Albert W. Grigg of Webster, were as follows: Heavyweights Lightweights D. Ekstrom__Forward.. .D. Futch W. Ulewicz....__Forward_A. Kudialis A. Kanekowski.Center__D. Duzynski D. Baumblatt.....Guard.....W.

Although Northeastern boasted but a small squad of thinclads, they proved to be the cream of the indoor track athletes of the country. The Falcons ran up an enviable record during the 1927 season; they claimed a tie for top honors in the national interscholastic meet and a tie for second place honors in the Western invitational and a second place in the city championship meets. Eugene Beatty, fleet Falcon ace, was the high point scorer of the city and state meets, and runner up in the national meet. He is the present holder of the city and state records for that distance. Northeastern tied for first place in the national interscholastic track and field meet although Beatty and Lewis were its only entries. Beatty sprinted to victory in the 880 ' yard dash and incidentally set a new national high school record taking four seconds off the former mark in that event. This was the first time that he had competed in the 880 in championship competition. Beatty finished at Tolan’s shoulder in the 50 ' yard dash, the Cass Tech star nosing him out in the last ten yards. Lewis scor ed the Falcons other five markers by outstepping a fast field in the 440 ' yard dash. In the Western invitational meet at Ann Arbor, Michigan, Northeastern earned 16 points. Beatty won both the low hurdles and the broad jump; Lewis captured the 440; and Snowden placed fourth in the 5o-yard dash. Ekonovich did not place in the mile run and Merck was outclassed in the 880. The Falcon thinclads gave all other entries in the city meet a tussle for honors. Beatty took both the low and high barriers and placed third in the shot put. Lewis captured the 440 and Ekonovich was second in the mile. Snowden finished second in the 50 ' yard dash, and Northeastern’s relay was second to Northwestern. The indoor track season is considered the most successful one in the sport annals of Northeastern. Page One Hundred When The Crucible went to press, the Northeastern outdoor track team was considered one of the strongest combinations of track men in the city. Both the city, state, and national interscholastic outdoor meets were yet to be run off. The Falcon thinclads placed second to Northwestern in the Ann Arbor invitational meet. Northeastern was far superior to the Colts in the dashes but lacked strength in the weight events. The Falcons had four firsts and two thirds in the meet. All of these places came in the field events except one. The Green and Gold team possesses endurance and albaround strength which is centered around their two mainstays, Eugene Beatty and John Lewis. Beatty, who was instru¬ mental in the splendid showing of the team during the indoor season, is one of the best all around athletes in the country. He was individual high point scorer at the Ann Arbor invitational with three firsts, the low and high hurdles, and the broad jump. John Lewis, the best 440 man in the state, took first in that event. Charles Eckonovich placed third in the half mile; Love Snowden finished third in the 100-yard dash. The other members of the team include Merck, a half-miler; Turkowski, in the javelin throw; Watkins and Brecht, discus men. Northeastern won its first outdoor track victory when they trounced Hamtramck in a dual meet 77-10. The Falcons captured first in every event on the schedule. The Green and Gold’s next successive victory came in a triangular meet with Central and Southeastern. Northeastern amassed a total of 95 points to the Trailblacers’ 18, and the Jungaleers’ 17. The Grandy Avenue boys ran their string of successive victories up to three when they defeated Flint Central and Cass Tech by a 50-38-32 score. Page One Hundred One GIRLS ' BASKETBALL TEAM Top Row, left to right —Kathleen Konopka, Sabina Tingle, Esther Textor, Blanche Jones, Sophie Tingle, Jennie Olechowska. Bottom Row —Celia Leventen, Katy Bodrojian, Alta Knipps (coach), Mattie Tilson (captain), Edwina Oben- chain, Agnes Losinski, Mildred Majorov. Although the Northeastern girls basketball team lost every game this season, the girls have received praise for their sportsmanship and their attitude during the contests. Captain Mattie Tilson, Edwina Obenchain, and Katie Bodrojan deserve credit for their work in playing the defensive, and for turning out for every game. The team was made up of very inexperienced girls who had never played on a basketball team before and who were taking their first attempt at the game. Mattie and Edwina were the only two veteran and regular players and they had played only a few games during the previous term. The Falconette players showed good team work and cooperation in every fray, but they were always defeated by their competitors. The games played and scores are as follows: Northern vs Northeastern 34-10; Southeastern vs Northeastern 57-7; Eastern vs North¬ eastern 21-9; Central vs Northeastern 35-8; Hamtramck vs Northeastern 19-12. By crushing Loyalty 21-5 in its closing game, Portia House obtained undisputed posses ' sion of the interhouse basketball trophy, a banner. Each house had a first and second team, but in deciding the championship only the first teams’ standings were considered. Portia’s first team won two games, and lost none; Jane Addams captured second place with one victory and one defeat; while Loyalty lost two games. Portia’s second team also won first place with two victories; Jane Addams and Loyalty tied for second place. Both houses won and lost one game each.

Although the girls swimming team proved unsuccessful in the dual meets held with other high schools, two girls took first place and several others placed second or third in their respective events in the City Meet held on Tuesday, March i. Most of the girls have passed the Junior Red Cross tests and are preparing to take the Senior test. Mary Belger, one of the best fancy divers and swimmers who has won points in every dual meet, was chosen captain of the team. The events that girls participated in during the tourneys are: back, breast, and craw strokes; all Senior and Junior twenty-five and fifty yard events; recovery of a ten pound object in deep water and disrobing, both preceded by a twenty-five yard swim; and fancy diving which consisted of three compulsory dives, a running or standing fron t dive, a jack-knife, a back dive, and two optional dives. After six close tournaments, Jane Addams won the gold trophy symbolic of the cham¬ pionship in girls interhouse swimming meets held in the school pool. Three novice and three advanced meets were held in order to give every swimmer a chance to compete. Out of all these meets Jane Addams won four, two advanced and two novice meets; Loyalty came second with two, one advanced and one novice; and Portia came last with no victories at all.

When The Crucible went to press, the Northeastern baseball team was figured as one of the three strongest contenders for the city high school baseball title, the other two being Northwestern, 1926 champions, and Southeastern. The Falcon nine had five lettermen back. The battery positions were well taken care of with Frank “Dodds” Sz,C2;epanski, veteran hurling star, on the mound, and Captain Leo Stefanski behind the bat. Markus Chovich, who was on the squad the year before and took the relief role on several occasions, was another pitcher. Alex Milanki, shortstop, John Oglenski, second baseman, and Stanley Molenda were the other lettermen. Joe Stanley, first baseman; Harry Kalapinski third baseman; Fortune Sullo, Charles “Red” Fisher, Joe Michalak, James Pulcher, Mach Ciesluk, outfielders, are the others who participated in the first two games. Only two games had been played when The Crucible went to press. In the opener, Stcz,epanski won a pitching dual from Kraut of Western, 3-2, at Clark Park, Friday, April 22. The Commerce nine proved easy for Northeastern. With the aid of steady pitching by Sz,czepanski and Chovich, who worked in the box the final inning, and the Falcon heavy artillery, the Green and Gold diamond men blanked the Auditors, 90, at the Northwestern field, Friday, April 29. The following games complete the schedule: May 6 .. Northeastern vs. Southwestern. May 10_Northeastern vs. Redford. May 13_Northeastern vs. Highland Park. May 17_Northeastern vs. Central.

Page One Hundred Six Singing, dancing, acting, blowing of horns, and bright colored balloons were only a few of the many spectacular sights that attracted the eye at the Carnival held at Northeastern the evenings of October 22 and 23. The Carnival was given by the Alumni Association Fund Committee to replenish the scholarship fund. Eureka, the mysterious fortune teller, turned out to be Lila E. Fyan. Another fortune teller appeared the second evening and she was found to be Gertrude M. Babcock. Clarence H. Hiller was the “cop” who arrested everyone that laughed, and took them to the mock court in the gymnasium where Glennoris L. Vogt presided as judge. The main corridor on the first floor was used for dancing. Each ticket cost five cents. A cabaret supper of coffee and doughnuts was served at the northeast door. Alumni were in charge. The Chamber of Horrors was the HLY’s contribution. Many shrieks could be heard when each new visitor was greeted with the electric handshaker. Members of the Northeastern Girls Club had a museum, a silhouette studio, and an animated grab bag. The museum consisted of a snake charmer, a wild man from Borneo, a tight rope walker, and a bearded woman. Page One Hundred Eight The program of the Music Club held in the auditorium, consisted of orchestra music selections by members of the Girls and the Boys Glee Clubs, and a Charleston exhibition by Meyer Budman. A quartet of girls dressed in gypsy costumes advertised the program by singing. Mrs. Laura H. Chynoweth’s swimmers gave the longest program. Clowns, antics, demonstrations as to various methods of life saving, recovery of objects, speed swimming, and diving constituted their program. Under the main stairway was the Girl Scouts’ Fish Pond. The fish were caught from a tub of water, with long rods. A baby picture gallery, composed of pictures of the faculty, seniors, and prominent students, was the work of The Crucible Staff. The House of Representatives gave each customer a ride on Leaping Lena, one of the “trolleys” used to carry groceries to the school lift. Richard Campau was the director, and Frank Cooper the soloist, of the Student Council orchestra. Vaudeville stunts and a comedy team completed the council’s program. On the first landing of the north stairway the NorT-Krafters sold balloons and confetti. The Portia Dramatic Club held their program in a tent in the gymnasium. The Library Staff gave a short play in the library imitating a typical movie audience. They also sold bags of Polish confection. Wilkowski’s Hardware Store gave a display of the Atwater Kent Radio in the gym ' nasium. The R. O. T. C. acted as police.
