cannot help perceiving its in-
teresting pictures and unique
features - the result oi many
laborious hours on the part of
the Viking staff under the able
supervision of Mr. F. H. Whitmer.

joyment in its contents as did
those responsible ior its editing.
V..iE u .
To Mr. Henry L. Simpson-whose amiable
character, helpful guidance, and infallible
good humor have added immeasurably to our
stay at Northern, we of the Viking Staff take
great pleasure in dedicating this semi-annual.

I sincerely hope that your three years at Northern High
school are crowded With pleasant memories and that the tasks
imposed upon you by our teachers have not been too burden-
Now you will be fully occupied with the disagreeable busi-
ness of War. May a speedy victory for Democracy return you to
the pursuits of peace.

President ...................... FRED GREEN
Fred Green, President of the June class, has more
than proved himself worthy of the high honor given
him by his classmates. His friendliness, sportsman-
ship, and ability combine to make him a leader of
whom to be proud.
Vice-President ................. JOAN HINKLE
Charm, personality, and an earnest participation in
Northern's activities have served to make Joan tre-
mendously popular. Representative of her popularity
is her position as vice-president, the functions of which
she has so ably performed.
Secretary ................ NINFA CATALANO
Our efficient secretary is well known for her par-
ticipation in such diversified fields as athletics and
music. Popular and well liked by all who know her,
Ninfa has filled her position with characteristic ability.
Treasurer ................. SELWYN TOUBER
Selwyn's likeable personality and ever ready smile
for all who know him have placed him in a prominent
position in his class. His ability to fulfill the duties of
his omce has been amply demonstrated.
That hour which we have looked forward to with such eagerness has finally
come. VVe, the members of the class of June, 1943, are about to be graduated. For
the past three years we have been fellow-students, divided by different opportunities
and different ambitions, united by a bond of loyalty to our school. We have looked
forward to this day since we first entered Northern, but, now that it has come, we find
a certain sadness at leaving and an unwillingness to say goodbye.
During our years at Northern we have been welded together by common aims
and common ideals. The students who have conscientiously given their best efforts to their
studies have laid a foundation of both knowledge and character upon which they may
safely build. The athletes who, in the face of defeat, have given their last ounce of
energy for the Red and Blue have caught the spirit of loyalty, courage, and sacrifice
which will do much to hold them steadfast in the battle of life.
Our instructors have wisely and patiently given us the benefits of their knowledge
and experience. They have taught us a great deal not found in text books, lessons
which we shall never forget. Perhaps the most cherished feature of our high school
life is the warm glow of friendship which has brightened each day. These strong,
happy friendships which we have formed at Northern will always be cherished.
We shall never forget this most profitable period of our lives, for it has been one
of great happiness. In the future we will enjoy recalling our friends, our good times,
and our successful efforts at Northern. Graduates, wherever you may happen to be
or whatever you may do, Cod bless you!

The members of the John Marshall House can boast of their already splendid record
along with their additional pledges of augmented high standards of this tenn. The suc-
cessful termination of the past five months under the guidance of Mr. Vozka has certainly
emitted accomplishments of great worth.
House 224 has participated in almost every national and local activity in respect to
supporting the school and aiding the war effort. The long honor roll of former John
Marshallites in the service is demonstrative of this. The high record of our basketball team
puts 224 in a high position in boys' sports. Philip Katz, Robert Hampton, and George
Kalendrut are prominent members of Northern's Rifle Team.
Our president, Jack Litwin, is prominent in school activities, he is Managing Editor
of the VIKING and president of the Student Council and of the High Standards Club
We extend our hearty congratulations to the graduates and wish them success in
their chosen pursuits.

Following the leadership of Miss Sutherland, House 307 takes its place among the
best at Northern. A serious attitude has been adopted to maintain the high standards

and good citizenship toward school and country are watchwords of 307 girls.
Following the great work of Clara Barton's American Red Cross, the members of
this House will perpetuate the high ideals for which this noted woman stood.
House 307 has in its possession the plaque awarded for attaining the highest
scholastic rating last term.

Because of its peaceful air of study, Northern's library is always well filled. It is
the first place most students go for advice when difiicult research assignments are given.
Under the cheerful guidance of Miss Lyon, or one of her "up and at 'em" stall,
students are aided in the use of all that the library contains.
The library boasts a collection of current magazines and a satisfying group of
newspapers, which includes the New York Times. Also provided are the classics and
many modern up-tordate books, as well as reference material.
Since its inception in 1939 the Northern High School Radio Unit, directed by
Mr. Harry Goldstein, has presented many perfonnances of merit. Students who are
taking, or have taken, the school's radio courses are eligible to participate in the activities
of the group. Because the Radio Unit does not operate as a iclub, the members have
never elected officers, however, students are appointed to positions comparable to those
of commercial radio stations. John Ohliger is the production director this semester,
Mary Dell Roberts and Pat Ludington are the executive secretaries, and Burghardt
Taliaferro, the music director. Arthur Munch, sound director, and Loren Johnston,
chief engineer, take care of the electrical equipment used in recording and broadcasting.
Adapting and recordfhg well known stories and plays is the regular work of the
group. Recently they produced a half-hour adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth. The
group has presented plays written by staff-members of Station WWI and of the Wayne
University Broadcasting Guild. Members of the Radio Unit have also written and
produced several school rally programs.
Directors for this year were Gerald Richards, Larry Terniack, John Ohliger, and
Burghardt Taliaferro. The talent included Mary Lincoln, Betty Pat Smith, Mary Dell
Roberts, Selwyn Touber, Pat Ludington, Marion Summers, Allen Smaltz, Bill Cornell,
and Willis Ellis.

Going to Princeton is a "fate worse than death." Naturally, we're
quoting from that mountainous monument of woes, Clifford Goldsmith's
What a Life. It was chosen as this term's senior play because of its natural
appeal for all who have ever been to school.
The play is full of adolescence, that time of mortal existence when even
misery is funny-funny, that is, to the onlookers, not the participants.
Henry Aldrich is the character about whom the play centers. He is rigor-
ously guided by a well-meaning family until he gets a feeling of guilt
about any achievement or act that's essentially his own.
There is a history exam. If Henry passes with the highest mark in his
class, his mother has promised to pay for a ticket to the school dance, to
which Henry is taking a very cute girl. In order to get the highest mark
he cheats. He is accused of stealing the brass instruments from the school
band. Finally, the assistant principal tells Henry to own up to his cheating,
and tells his parents that Henry belongs in an art school. The real thief
of the instruments is caught, and the play ends with Henry facing another
crisis-that of scraping up thirty cents.
The play was well produced under4Mr. Goldstein's excellent :direction
and the work of the large cast and production stall.

Without relaxing the standards which have been theirlaim through the last twelve
years, the Delta girls have added to the purpose of "The pursuit of knowledge, the
development of the intellect and the furtherance of sociability among girls," that of
"Aiding the cause of Victory." Before and after school, and even during school hours,
the girls have conducted the sale of defense stamps and bonds. From October through
March they have the grand total of 34,474.20 to their credit.
Many enjoyable social meetings have been held outside of school, including a bowling
party. At least a B average is necessary to maintain membership in this club.
Mrs. Stoneman sponsored the club this term, and to her we extend our undying
gratitude for the assistance she has given us.
M. Henry, D. Adelson, R. Donofsky, N. Lifshitz, and E. Zager were accepted this
term as new members in the club.
ouse of representatives
Led by Ivan Ludington, its able and inspiring president, the Northern House of
Representatives has risen to new heights.
On March I2 a most successful dance was given at the Hackett Field House. Many
from Northern came out to share in the fun which everyone was having.
Basketball and baseball contests were held with Hi-Y and other teams. ln this way
and by means of house parties the five new members have become well acquainted with
the other seventeen.
The "House" has endeavored to serve the school by selling bookcovers and ushering
at the senior play.

Regularly holding meetings at the homes of members, the Trideal-Euterpe Club
has completed another successful temi. While knitting squares for their Bed Cross
afghan, the girls were entertained by the sponsors who read aloud from popular books.
Trideal and Euterpe, formerly two separate clubs, were joined in 1939. The three
ideals of the club are scholarship, friendship, and service. Proof of the regard the
members have for these ideals is the showing they have made in school activities. Nancy
Wolfs, Doris Herriott, and Barbara Snyder held major parts in the 12A play this term.
lean Hunt was on the Light staff, while Barbara Snyder and Marjorie Bean were active
on the Viking.
The girls would like to extend their gratitude to the sponsors, Miss Elliott, Miss

Because of the physical fitness training of this year, Varsity Basketball gave way
to intramural competition. There was a tenth, an eleventh, and a twelfth grade team.
CThe freshmen did not do quite so well as upperclassmenl. Led by Co-captains Chuck
Frankel and Stuart Chipman, the eleventh grade team won, all their games and ended
by capturing the divisional championship. This team will be returning intact for com-
petition next term.
The seniors, with Jim Smoot and jack Reagan as guards, Co-captain Dan Potter,
center, and Co-captain Bill Jacobson and Edward McKnight as forwards, also led in all
of their games and completed a successful season by capturing the twelfth grade divisional
' Most of these players will enter the armed forces immediately upon graduation.
If they show' as much determination and teamwork for their country as they have shown
for Northern we will understand the quick triumph of our forces all over the world.
Boys, Northern is proud of you and may God watch and look over all of you as you
become a member of a much larger team with a greater and more important goal-

The indoor track season was abandoned for the physical fitness training. After
much deliberation on the part of school authorities outdoor track is to be returned. North-
ern's chances this spring seem good with the presence of two All-City men, Co-Captains
Ernest Boyd and Julian Witherspoong and one varsity man, Sidney Stevens.
This will be Boyd's and Witherspoon's final year, and both will be giving their best.
Boyd has jumped 6 feet 3 inches repeatedly, and if it were not for the Army he
would most: certainly have a grand college career ahead of him. He is a good worker
and a grand sport.
Witherspoon has distinguished himself at Northern by his outstanding ability as a
sprinter. He has been a member of Northern's team for all three years-earning an All-
City stripe for each year and another after his hnal one. He is leader of the City's
30 and loo yard dash men.

although there was less chance for inter-school competition. The most enjoyable game
of the season was "Cuties vs. Farmerettesf' the final score being 30-32, the Cuties
chalking up the winning point.
The other schools played were Hamtramck and Pershing. Chosen to lead the team
was Ruth Hackett, with Maureen Fallis elected manager. The other Varsity players
were Ruth Linson, Bonnie Long, Catherine Michaelis, Leah Stanley, Betty Everett,
Marion Parker, Catherine Marsh, Ninfa Catalano, and Betty Scholar.

GOOD POSITIONS IN
THE WAR PROGRAM
There is a critical shortage of stenographers, typists,
accountants, and office machine operators for desirable
positions in Federal Government departments, war in-
dustries, and business. Young men with this training
i are needed by our armed forces.
You can help "work for Victory" in these positions,
and increase your chances for worthwhile employment
in the post-war era.
You can prepare at The Business Institute for one
of these opportunities.
