- ---- --THE REVIEW- l942sf---r Cllass History By LOTTIE STADNIK Once upon a time, in January, 1939, some freshies sauntered through the portals of North- eastern. Their beaming faces had yet not a wrinkle, their hair not a single gray streak, and their minds no know- ledge of the misery in store for them. Perplexed and frust- rated, they were regard- ed by their elders as nothing more nor less than freshies. Those days were indeed Dark Ages. But when they r e a c h e d the twelfth grade, their Renaissance began. After responding to the call, "Will the meeting please come to order?" every Tuesday and after dispensing with the usual procedures of electing officers and forming committees, their first mo- mentous moment showed its light-the 12B prom. They donned their Sunday best to swing and sway their troubles away. During that first historic period, they wit- nessed gobs of money pouring into their treas- ury, as each eagerly scurried to pay his dues l?'?l and as they starred their lucrative 12B play, which portrayed the hilarious school boy, Henry Aldrich. Hilarious, too, was the class of January '42, for the proceeds were the largest ever made by any 12B play in the history of their school. During that term of grade 12B, too, they acquired the resplendent distinction of having among their rank a city-wide winner of the Civitan essay contest, Lucille Dlugoszewski. When autumn brought out her easel and started to paint her foliage, the class of January, 1942, plunged into making plans for its last term of school. To wear caps and gowns at graduation or not to wear them was the question arising at their first meeting. An infinitesimal minority argued itself to a stage of sessicated mouths against the causeg however, the election results proclaimed caps and gowns. Deep down in their pockets would they have had to dig for 12A dues, but their officers and sponsors gathered around the conference table and executed a great upheaval in the metho-d of collecting dues. The class was used as a guinea pig for this new deal and the reactions to the experiment proved positive. Successful people from all walks of occupations were invited to conduct a vocational seminar. The class saw slides, and heard Dr. John R. Emens of the Board of Education speak apropos of future employment. Thanks to their sponsors, who were responsible for these activities, they can greet their future years with the words, "Come on, we are ready for you." 1 To relieve the seniors from the serious side of their rank, January 9 and 29 soon rolled around, and with them the 12A prom and the banquet. Besides those students whose ability was rec- ognized with generous scholarships, there were others who merited places in Northeastern's hall of fame. Hail to Alfreda Strzelecki, the champion of typewriter pounders! "Oil! Ink!'l cry the type- writers when Alfreda goes to work on them with her 77 words a minute-a record-setting speed in Northeastern. Hail to Alice Forysiak and Florence Wesolowski, queens of hieroglyphics! Being right on the verge of writing 140 words a minute in shorthand is something no commercial graduate of Northeastern could before claim. What a blissful and felicitous last term they would have had, had not the faculty put in force those tyrannical, unconstitutional, freedom- abridging fin our mode of thinkingl laws! How- ever, the ediphone, the new typewriters, and the pianos in Portia and Angell houses were all things that really did provide some blissful notes. Compared to the present day, their appearance of three years ago would seem ludicrous, for many new fads have since been inducted into the high school world of fashion. Take, for instance, coiffures. Hair swept high over the ears or tied in back has been quite the craze. More recent are the pigtails, the abhorra- tion of the masculine sex. Gracing the halls like sheep-dogs are seen girls with the Veronica Lake hair-do. Age is disregarded nowadays. All shapes and sizes of ribbons adorn the lassies' tresses. When jitterbugging came in style, blouses and shirts spattered with names and words, revolu- tionary coats, and conspicuous hosiery came, too. Fashion marched on, and following it were knee length socks, jerkins, Sloppy Joe sweaters, vic- tory sweaters, patriotic jewelry, and dickies. The time came to be when each and everyone of them trudged their way to and from school and passed from class to class in saddle ox- fords. There was also the time when girls shuffled around in Mex- ican sandals and walked noiselessly about in In- dian moccasins. With the exception of a few rare species, their average age was 17. The ra.rest of these rare species was Eulah Marie Clarke, who carried only 16 years and 1 month on her shoulders when she marched across the commencement platform. January 28, 1942, marked the decline and fall of this class, as they graduated 172 strong. Page Five
