To 5 W t Lamplighters 'Twas once before that earth was dark, Unlike the dark we know today. A pall fell on the world each night, Upon the sea it stretched away. Then prescient Tom began to dream, And in that placid sleep saw he, A world of light at midnight hours, That world he made existing be. But darkness shrouds the earth again, And vaunted progress seems to end. Hate clogs the mind of mortal man, Where hope and wisdom should transcend. Perhaps some day upon the ebb, Of love and hope and liberty, When all the world is quiet, still, When shadows hug the silent se:-15 A genius from We know not where, Will light man's heart, and forethought lend That he may see las it should bel His brother not as foe, but friend. -Jonathan Williams. I Page Six 1 Q From the Principal When you entered this building three years ago, nobody could have foreseen that there could now be so tremendous a struggle between regimentation and individual freedom. What its outcome will be, nobody can predict. We do, however, know this: that you must do everything within your power to preserve democracy in its best aspects and prepare yourself to defend your native shores. No matter how your plans for the future may be upset by these changed social conditions, you must preserve your individuality and strive to live up to the high ideals for which America has ever stood. This can be achieved best by the simple and homely things and not by heroics. If you can find the meaning expressed by this simple, ancient poem of unknown origin, I think you can safely weather the storm and do your part in building a better America. "I-Ie loves his country best Who lives pure life and doeth righteous deed, And walks straight paths however others stray, P And leaves his sons, as uttermost bequest, A stainless record which all men may readg This is the better way. as 44 is "No drop but serves the slowly lifting tideg No dew but has an ei-rand to some flowerg No smallest star but sheds some helpful rayg And man by man, each helping all the rest, Make the firm bulwark of the country's powerg There is no better way." You all have my very best wishes. Sincerely yours, I Page Eight 1 From the Assistant Prmczpal The development of Americanism has cultivated a loyalty to our country which transcends petty, selfish interests, without implying, however, the doctrine of uniformity. If patriotism is defined alone in the spirit of jingoism-strength, power, superiority-not much solace can be expected. If, however, we define patriotism as strict loyalty to the spiritual and moral ideals of the founders of our country, of what it can contribute to human well-being, of what progress can come from pooling of resources, rather than the attainment of selfish interests, the country as a whole and the individuals therein will benefit. In other words, freedom to reach decisions on the basis of moral knowledge and ethical inquiry is stressed, rather than the imposition of totalitarian propaganda and indoctrina- tion. Perpetuate to the best of YOUR ability freedom to reach YOUR decisions on the basis of YOUR just knowledge and investigation.

There the sun is always shining And the slcies are always bright. There the folks are always happy Be it day or be it night. All my dearest friends reside there, How I love their gaiety, As I listen to the gossip Of each flower, bird, and tree. So if troubles come to bother, You can build a house sublime, That will weather all your hardships Till the very end of time. -Sarah Philka I Page Fourteen 1 7 all DJ! 12A O cers JOE DAIAK President MORRIS WEISS Vice-President SYLVIA NEUMAN Secretary MILTON S. COHEN Treasurer An easy-going friendly manner and an enthusiastic interest in everything have won for our tall, lanky president alhost of friends. Numerous activities give evidence of his versatility and intelligence. Joe is without doubt an indispensable member of our senior class. Our vice-president's chief charm is an irresistible smile, which betrays his excellent sense of humor. Many of us will remember him for his portrayal of Silas in the 12A play, "Silas, the Chore Boy." Morris has taken an active part in school affairs and, because of his engaging personality, enjoys a wide popularity among his classmates. Vivacious, loquacious Sylvia quickly wins the affections of whomever she meets. As secretary of the 12A class, business manager of the Light, and treasurer of her house, Sylvia has shown that she is as capable as she is attractive. Our secretary is best described by a single word, the name of the character she portrayed in the senior play, "Perm" Quiet, unassuming Milton Cohen, popularly called "Mickey,,' is a class ofhcer to be proud of. His excellence in scholastic achievement and his able participation in school activities make him a leader. A favorite of all, "Mickey" is quite a busy fellow these days, what with being 12A treasurer. I Page Sixteen 1 President? Message AT long IasT we have reached ThaT TaTeTuI day: ThaT day when we are graduaTing Trom high school. Twelve years ago, when we were sTarTed on The road To educaTion, we viewed The ThoughT oT going To school wiTh disTincT pleasure. We soon learned whaT Tun school could be. BuT, alas, alack, someThing happened: somewhere along The way, we, all oT us, aT some Time or oTher, and Tor some reason or oTher, musT have made The wish :"Oh, how I wish I didn'T have To go To school!" Perhaps some ThoughTIess Teacher Took us To Task Tor noT doing our assigned homework. Do you remember how bad we Tell' Then? Was iT our TauIT Though ThaT There were so many oTher Things ThaT we would much raTher do Than go To school? We would Take a day Trom school To go hiking or swimming. Could we help iT iT our minds could noT be Torced To do our lessons? This phase of our lives disappeared when we enTered high school. SympaTheTic and undersTanding Teachers poinTed ouT To us ThaT if we were To succeed aT iobs in The TuTure, we would have To learn To apply ourselves To iobs in The presenT. "Your only iob now," we were Told, "is To GET AN EDUCATION." WhaT do we mean by educaTion? Anyone, who gives iT iTs IiTeral and noT iTs real meaning, will Tell you "GeTTing an educaTion is The learn- ing oT TacTs abouT various subiecTs." ITs applied meaning, however, is quiTe diTTerenT. I would deTine iT as, "The resuIT oT The masTering oT The abiIiTy To Think clearly and independenTIy, The abiIiTy To geT along wiTh and To help oThers, and The acquisiTion of a knowledge oT The TacTs oT life." Your educaTion To daTe has consisTed oT The learning oT These quali- Ties. The exTenT To which you can apply Them will deTermine The value oT your educaTion. a Some oT us, realizing The need Tor a conTinuaTion oT our sTudies, will go on To college and will noT have To go ouT inTo The world Tor some Time yeT. OThers will Take Their place in The world now. These are The maioriTy, and To Them I would like To repeaT a Tormula Tor success, "You geT ouT oT This IiTe whaT you puT inTo iT." The graduaTe who is going To college will Tind This To be True, also. There is a place oT TrusT and dependabiliTy waiTing Tor each oT us. IT we Try hard enough, we can make ourselves anyThing we wanT. s AIThough we bid Tarewell To NorThern wiTh Tears in our eyes, we KNOW ThaT we are going on To beTTer Things, ThaT we are leaving our school IiTe, buT are enTering IiTe's school.

Their attractive exhibits on the tables, and of course the conservatory, provide plenty of atmosphere for the topics of study which deal with both Botany and Zoology. COOKING-Northern girls with an eye to the future make goocl students in the cooking classes. There they not only learn to cook tasty and balanced meals but how to serve them so attractively that Miss Emily Post herself could find nothing at fault. I Page Thirty-Six 1 As Others See Us CHEMISTRY LABORATORY-Although the source of unearthly odors that occasionally per- vacie the corridors, the Chemistry laboratory is one of the school,s most interesting classrooms. Here the scientific aspirant leaves the toy chemistry set and begins to be confused by the actions of bases, acids, salts, colloids, and real scientific laws and theories. SEWING-Northern, too, is doing its bit for the deserving Recl Cross. In the sewing classes Red Cross clresses were made for British Relief. We can think of no better project for a clothing class. I Page Thirty-Seven 1 F if Y: in t X, M... , ,M r M ore Activities PHYSICS LABORATORY-The Physics laboratory becomes a snarl of strings, wires, pendulums, batteries, and magnets as the future Fords, Morses, and Edisons get acquainted with the scientific aspect of our everyday life. Anything might and does happen here as Northernites learn the whys and wherefores of things that most of us take for granted. SHOP-Under the hands of future mechanics and amid the hail ,of sawdust and shavings, the boys in the shop have accomplished many interesting projects. It is interesting to note that they are sanding the school benches so that soon you may wear your sheer stockings without any qualms, girls. I Page Thirty-Eight 1 , . . , ,.

The girls of 207 have made a good showing on the Varsity Athletic squads. To Varsity Basketball we contributed Wilma Biggs, Phyllis Christiansen, and Suzanne Comets. Barbara Ensing, Janet Ensing and Eileen Dark did their part as members of the Varsity Swimming Team. The Hockey Team was supported by Wilma Biggs, Patricia Branley, and Fern Casson. Virginia Culton represented House 207 on Nortl-1ern's Tennis Team. To Viking and Light Staffs we have contributed our full share. Miss Giddings and the girls of 207 wish the seniors all the possible success in attaining their goal. I Page Forty 1 House 208 MORRIS WEISS , JACK. SCHNEIDER Pfegidgnf Vife-Pfefidenf MR.

My name is Alice Freeman Palmer, guardian of House 227 since the year 1919. Under the expert guidance of House Counsellor, Miss Knight, 227 has developed a homey spirit in which girls may present their problems to her with the same response as would be given them at home. Her flair for systematic executive organization and abiding interest in the welfare and work of her girls has established her as one of the necessities at Northern. Enduring satisfactions in whatever you may'encounter is my sincere desire for each member of the graduating class.

VOZKA House Principal l MARVIN LQPATIN JACK RIBIAT Secretary Treasurer Under the able-direction of Mr. Henry Vozka, our House Principal, 224 has once again concluded another successful semester.

Under the leadership of Miss Sutherland, our counselor, we are being taught the rucliments of self-government, self-reliance, and self-discipline. Just as the test of a cake lies in the eating, so the final test of the high school is in the house. As the house sows, so the student harvests, and we of 307 shall reap a large crop. I Page Forty-Four 1 House 308 BEN FOX JACK GRAHAM President Vice-President MR. BLANCHARD House Principal SIDNEY FERSI-ITMEN PI-IILLIP GANNON Sefrelary Treasurer Benjamin Franklin Hall has put "Democracy in the Study Hall" to work. It was our belief that the study hall developed more school spirit under demo- cratically-chosen leaders. The boys were learning to pull together, and a fine fellowship and school leadership was found throughout the study hall. The Franklinites were well represented in various school activities. Jack Graham and Tom Fezzey were the stars on Northern's Varsity Basketball team. We wish to extend our congratulations to the seniors and to wish them success and happiness in all their future endeavors.

I wish I were homeg I wish I were Cleacl, Elsewhere but here, even home sick in beclg I feel like a lamb to a sacrifice 1ecl-- , O why was I born to such woe?

Turning the dial of plays back 50 years, "Silas, the Chore Boy," an old- fashioned "gay nineties" melodrama by Frank H. Bernard, was selected by Mr. Charles S. Lewis, our able director, as this term's senior play. The story begins when our heroine, Cecil Dare fNan Mclselland, Margy Simpsonj, who is being pursued by her villainous husband, Gerald Blake fSeymour Barenholtz, Russell Burtonj, because he wants to get the valuable deeds that Cecil has, collapses on the Ridley farm where she is found by Arthur Ridley, the hero Uohn Snodgrass, Richard Guilfordj. Blake's failure in his attempts to get the papers is mainly due to Silas fMorris Weiss, Gwynne Windlej, who has thrown aside his chores long enough to play the part of a hero. Blakels wo'thless servant, Cinch fWillie Bryant, Jack Kapej, is captured by Jed Perkins, the town constable fAlbert Heller, Donald Neyj, who, because of his bravery, wins the hand of Nancy Ridley fAvis Lahman, Marion Pomerantzj. The rest of the, cast consists of the following: Hiram Ridley, Merrill Hudson and Peter Coralisg Pert Ridley, Sylvia Neuman and Eleanor Philips. Bernard Barris played the Barker, and Phil Sirotkin delivered the prologue. Specialty numbers, favorites of the "gay nineties," were presented by Bill Lansky, Edna Livingston, Phil Gannon, Virginia Sulatycki and James Pagonas.

The rifle team engaged in outside competition twice this year. On March 7, with the five best men from each school contending for the Hearst Trophy, the Northern riflemen were third. In the Sixth Corps meet, March 21, the team was seventh. In each meet a contestant fires at Hve targets, two shots to each target, at a distance of fifty yards in each of four positions. These positions are prone, sitting, kneeling, and standing. The targets have six rings with a l:aull's eye one- sixth of an inch in diameter. Bob Brezsney, George Kazup, and Bob Pearson were high scorers for this year. With only Pearson graduating, next year,s team will be made up mostly of veterans. I Page Fifty-Nine 1 R. O. T. C.

To you is extended the felicita- tions of the world beyond those beloved portals of education. We know you are as well qualified to meet the future as we were. The training that you received as students is thrust aside when comparing it to the qualities of good citizenship that have been impregnated into you by the able faculty of Northern High School. The need for true patriotic citizens has never been impressed upon the schools of our country as it has been at this time of grave peril threatening our demo- cratic institutions. You are now in your maturity. You are well able to understand the trouble- some times that have come upon us. Your interest in attempting to solve successfully' the problems that beset us is part of your inherent duty as citizens of the United States. You cannot and will not fail. Your adolescent years are behind you. You are men and women that we are proud to know, and upon whom we look for the reassurance of success that is so vital to our success in the struggle to overcome those ills that beset us all.

The library of Northern High school provides a pleasant place for students to study in a quiet atmosphere. The room itself is large and spacious, and its attractiveness is increased by the pictures, the beautiful grandfather clock, and the plants provided by the biology department. The library staff, which consists of fifteen members and three pages, is under the direction of Miss Lyons, the librarian. It is composed of students who are particularly interested in library work. They have many and varied duties which include, besides the essentials of librarianship, the preparing of new books for the shelves, mending old books, assisting the student body to find books and charging them out, and the recording of the many magazines and newspapers to be found in the library.

The club, headed by Edward Knote, president, meets at the homes of its members and plans its activities of recreation and service. Frequently a guest is invited to show movies or to speak on general topics of interest, such as: How to Camp, Hunting in the United States, and Safe Driving. For the promotion of good fellowship, we give house parties at the cottages of various members. Regular ushering for the senior play and contesting the Hi-Y club sports are important. activities in each season.

The Trideal-Euterpe Club was formed in 1939 to promote school spirit and service. The girls' activities have been varied-holiday baskets, Red Cross sweaters, money for infantile paralysis victims, and the club dances. We hope our motto will be an inspiration to the graduates: "May our ideals of today be the hope of our tomorrow."

We find as its present officers the following girls: President, Catherine Wardeg vice-president, Virginia Sulatyckig secretary, Edith Cottlerg treasurer, Avis Lahman. . All of the girls are actively interested in some sport of the school. We have representatives from the basketball, swimming, tennis, and hockey teams.

Potapashyn, Meier, T. Kaseta. The object of the Northern "N" Club is to promote in Northern good sportsmanship and to encourage better attendance at all athletic contests. Mem- bership is based on the possession of a varsity letter won in any major sport. Mr. Henry C. Kolbe is acting sponsor with coach Abe Katz as honorary sponsor. The "N" Club's only activity so far this year is an "N" club-faculty basketball game and dance for the purpose of raising funds for the baseball season.

Jones, M. Kaminsky. After Northern had won the first five games, two successive defeats prac- tically ruined their hopes of a championship team. Paced by Bryant and Fezzey, Northern easily defeated Miller, Pershing, Northeastern, Hamtramck, and Denhy. However, the satisfaction gained by defeating Miller and Hamtramck was not enough to carry the team on, as they lost to Highancl Park and Southeastern. Having defeated Eastern, the Eskimos bowed to Cass. This left Northern and Cass tied for third place. Willie Bryant placed second among the Metropolitan league scorers, sinking 104 points. Tom Fezzey, with 92, was also near the top. Bryant and Graham will not he hack next year, but the return of Fezzey, Jones, Weakley, Northrup, and Lowry makes the outlook for the future bright.

Bowing to Eastern and Hamtramck, the Eslcies threatened to defeat North- eastern, but were thwarted by having an incomplete team. In the final meet Southeastern was victorious. Julian Witherspoon, Herb Kaufman and Izzy Rosen have led the team in scoring. The coming outdoor season promises a better record considering our schedule. Although Al Boyd, Rosen, Bald, Manhire, and McAlonan are leaving, the return of Witherspoon, Kaufman, Parker, Ernie Boyd, Kean, and Morris gives prospect of a balanced team next year.

The girls' swimming team ended a successful season, winning three out of five meets, under the able instruction of their new coach, Miss Buckeye. The strongest swimmers of the squad are Nadia McKay, captain, doing the free style, Janet Ensing, manager, the free style and back stroke, Lolita Paynter, co-manager, back stroke, Shirley Truesdell, the back stroke, and Barbara Kolb and Barbara Ensing, the breast stroke. The leading divers of the team are Peggy Sloman and Barbara Ensing. The team,s schedule began with a victory over Western, 61-55. Being defeated by Highland Park did not discourage them, as they subdued Central 56-45, and Denby, 61-56, in their third and fourth meets. Although the season ended with a defeat by Cooley, the score was close, 52-47. E V Great spirit was shown among the members throughout the season. l Page Eighty-Eight 1 Baseball Team ..

Miss Delaney once again coached an enjoyable girls' basketball year Although not very many of the last year's varsity players returned, the team played some good games. This year's 'captain was Alice Meiser and the playing manager was Catherine Warde. The girls played Central, Eastern, Highland Park, Southeastern, North- western, Northeastern, and Pershing. The first team was composed of the following girls: forwards, Lois Shaw, Ruth Linson, Phyllis Christensen, and Susanne Comer, guards, Catherine, Warde, Geraldine Moore, Nan McLelland, and Alice Meiser. Elizabeth Wilhelmi and Lucille Wilson were our official score and time keepers. We are glad to say that few of our varsity squad are being graduated, so we plan to have a good team next year.

Ar the center of this busy picture is Mr. Whitmer who is always ready to advise and help when the stag gets into difficulties. MECHANICAL DRAWING-One of the major tasks in the making of the Viking is the laying out of each page. This is where the mechanical drawing boys come in. Before the various parts of the Viking can he sent to the printer each page must be carefully laid out so that the printer will know just where the pictures are to go. I Page Ninety-Four I ART DEPARTMENT-As far as the Viking staff is concerned it's "orchids to the art department." Their big job of the term was doing the division pages for the Viking and they worked hard for something that would be unique and different. The result certainly merits not only our approval but our thanks as well. PASTING-For anyone who has a hangover from his muclpie-making days, pasting the pic- tures on the mounting boards would be a joy. Although undeniably messy it's a lot of fun and since it has to be done the staff just pitches in up to its elbows. The Viking Science vs. Superstition By CLARE SWARTZ There are many little things we do and say today simply because others do and say those things, but how many of us actually know what they mean and how they originated? The phrase, "Adam's apple," for instance, is used constantly by people who haven't the slightest idea where the phrase originated. The story is that a piece of the forbidden apple lodged in Adamys throat, and that all men have this lump in the throat as a reminder of Adam's sin. The custom of "knocking on wood" appears to have come from the custom of touching wood upon every occasion of happiness or good fortune in gratitude to Christ who died upon a wooden cross. Therefore, the custom of touching or "knocking" on wood came to be looked upon as a means of warding off ill luck. A similar type of superstition is found in Sweden, where fishermen do not dare mention to anyone during the course of the day how many fish they have caught, fearing that if they do so, they will catch no more fish that day. Another superstition, that eating garlic gives strength, is traced back to ancient times in Egypt, when the pyramids were being built. The workmen were given great quantities of onions and garlic to eat, because it was believed that this food would make them stronger. It is customary for children to fall out of bed, but there has existed for many centuries the superstition that a child falls out of bed at the will of the spirits that hover about it. If a baby does fall out of bed before it is eleven months old, it will be a fool. Another curious superstition is that if a baby should happen to look into a glass before its first birthday, it will die. An amusing combination of warning and superstition is that if you are cross when you are young, you will be an old maid! Dreams have always interested man, and through the centuries many super- stitions have been evolved concerning the things that man sees in his dreams. An example is, to dream that someone hates you indicates that you have gained a new friend. Here are some of the familiar dream superstitions: Dream o f death and you will hear from the living. Dream of eggs and you will quarrel with a friend. Dream of a nest and you will receive a gift. Dream of a fire and you will have ill luck. Dream of a great blaze in your home, and you will receive money. Dream of men and you will be lucky, of women, and you will be unlucky. No matter how strong science has grown, it has been unable to destroy such ridiculous beliefs. I Page Ninety-Eight I On Superstition By SHERRELL WOLNER Primitive men had plenty of reason to believe that over and above the world of sense there was a supernatural world, the inhabitants of which were cruel and bent upon the destruction of humanity unless they were appeased and humored. Nothing appeared so self-evident as the fact that the human race dragged on its existence under the spell of a curse. Health did not appear to spread from person to person, but sickness was contagious. Poor man was chilled in the winter and burned in the summer. Ac times there were unusual terrors, for example, when the sun, which generally shone all day long, was swallowed up by the dragon of eclipse. Enemies were everywhere. In the face of these obstacles if any man did manage to live and attain some degree of comfort, this was because the powers of the supernatural world, for reasons of their own, had permitted him to do so. He was a lucky creature. But if another man fell by the wayside, if, indeed, he died, this was because he was out of favor in the sight of the gods. He was an unlucky creature. The idea of luck among superstitious people has not changed much in the course of the ages. The belief that there is a supernatural world inhabited by two warring factions, one creative and the other destructive, is the foundation upon which most modern conventions, social habits, beliefs, and even arts rest. And basically, the rule holds today as it did yesterday that the purpose underlying all attempts at commerce with the supernatural, if that commerce takes the base form of superstition, is that of improving one's luck. I Page Ninety-Nine 1 The Birth of Superstition By SARAH PHILKA In the earliest stages of undeveloped civilization, man's greatest weakness was fear. The crashing of thunderbolts sent him pell- mell into the darkest corner of his cave, where he sat petrified. The twisted trees and the creeping shadows bewildered and terrified him. The night with its peering eyes brought an expression of horror and suspicion upon his face. From his own imagination, he visualized the miracles of the world as being fiendish creatures of destruction. He was like a frightened child who is afraid of the dark. As time elapsed, man grew to respect the world of spirits and witchcraft. Traditional tales of good and bad omens were conceived and related. Thus, the ignorance of that age created superstition, which was really a state of mind. As civilization moved upward, superstition followed close ,behind and managed to survive until this very day. The blaclc cat, which is a popular superstition of today, was supposed to represent a witch in disguise. It was believed that a mirror was a crystal of the future dominated by the will of gods. If anyone broke the glass, he was cursed with seven years had luck. A horeshoe, luclcy coin, rabbit's foot and others represent good luck, because of some wild tale that has been handed down through the generations. Although superstition is a strange inheritance, it is not harmful. It is an exaggerated privilege 'of imagination. After all, what would a wedding be without rice, or? Halloween without black cats and witches? The absurd characteristics of superstition will always prevail in the hearts of men. L Page One Hundred 1 Sailors' Superstitions and Science By Ross TAMBURRO Puttering around test tubes and proving the laws of gravitation have alwa s been associated with classiiied knowled e. On the Y g other hand did ou ever realize that su erstitions la an im ortant a Y P P Y P part in science, too? In the former days, mariners clung to the belief that witches and nixies took possession of the sea on Friday. They often repeated the proverb: "Friday,s moon, Come when it will, it comes too soon." Even the Very mention of the day was taboo to all seafaring men. The superstition still remains, although in a modified form. In fact, there still are some seamen who will not set sail on the sixth day of the week. Their reason being, that in the event of a gale, the crew might become panicky and lose confidence. Thus, we see that science has taken its place but not entirely though, for there are yet some points that will have to be cleared up. Priests were definitely bad omens. Their black robes and austeriry were reminders of burial. Even talking to a minister before a voyage was said to bring ill luck. Meeting barefooted women with Hat feet was a hap that all sailors wished to avoid. This token was particularly strong among French- men, but there is little evidence of its existence now. The ceremony of christening a ship can be traced to antiquity, namely, when the vessel was under the divine blessing, its journey would be a prosperous one. This custom has ceased to be a super- stition although it is practiced today with full pomp and glory. What great feats science is accomplishing!
