Those ten years have been filled with all the pleasantries and memories that only a high school With vast facilities can afford. Many changes have taken place during that time. Some have been gradual: others, abrupt, as is demonstrated in the external appearance of costumes as the symbolic hour glass at the right portrays. But what changes have taken place have all helped to bring to Steinmetz the character and dignity that maturity alone can bring. In bringing to you this Anniver- sary Edition of the Silver Streak We wish you pleasant reminiscences. J 4 H ral' ,.

High school days are gladsome days, Filled with joys and tears, Yet every graduate admits They were his happiest years. And now at last, the time has come For us to take our leave. With tear-dimmed eye we say good-bye, Though it's no time to grieve. The whole world lies before us, Its treasures are ours to use: Do what you can with what you have, Strive hard-you've nothing to lose.

As a research scientist for General Electric Company, Steinmetz deserves for every device in connection with alternating since he invented the power transformer tor current and proved that it was safe to use remember him as the maker of testing insulation. He died in 1923. To the left we see Steinmetz High School as it looked in 1931. Thus steel beams and girders remained for three years, when federal aid was granted for its completion.

The students at the school, the teachers and the people of the community have felt a com- mon bond in working with him, since he and they strive towards the same goal of keeping "Steinmetz Beautiful." As principal of Steinmetz High School, Mr. O'Hearn has won wide renown as one of Chicago's foremost educators and adminis- trators. Mr. O'Hearn has had to cope with the problems of varying types of students that economic and social conditions of the times have brought to school. His adaptability to circumstances is evidenced by his establishment of the Indigent Students Fund to aid post-depression students early in the career of Steinmetz High School and the formation of the Servicemen's Committee to meet a modern need of alumni in the service. Mr. 0'Hearn's influence can be felt far afield, from the fox-holes of Tarawa to the icy wastes of the Aleutians, for he personally signs the hundreds of greeting cards sent by the committee to the boys and girls in the service. At the end of his ten years at Steinmetz, six thousand, eight hundred and sixty-seven students will have received diplomas from their beloved "D.F." As Mr. O'Hearn departs from his "Steinmetz Beautiful," he leaves high ideals and precious memories graven on our hearts.

Since that time it has become of community activity as well as a' modern and efficient institution. From the interest of the community has ttion of the rough, rutty clay of the ground the school into the terraced, landscaped campus affords a proper setting for the building. Alderman Mrs. Henry Hansen deserve our gratitude for this campus. It has come to be part of our school life, by track, baseball and football teams, enjoyed by all times over. Steinmetz has achieved for itself a substantial name in the country. Among its attainments can be num- and athletics, in civic contests and R.O.T.C. events. The have grown through the years until they can be rated at Steinmetz were different from present ones. The students of 1934 were serious dnd interested only in school work. Disinterested boys and girls of that time at- tended school only because there was nothing else to do. Living standards and wages were very low then. Between the serious and uninterested students were some few who tried to raise funds and provide entertainment. The student of today tries to maintain his scholastic work and still participates in many extra-curricular activities. Students now study and work to do their part for the war effort. Saving is encouraged by the promo- tion of war stamp and bond sales. Yes, changes have taken place. A student may not notice the transition from one trend to another during his four year stay Cexcept in the case of something as abrupt as the declaration of warl, but in viewing these ten years it is possible to see how each graduating class differs from the others. Graduates of l934 hoped they might be fortunate enough to find a position and eventually establish them- selves. Some of them looked ahead to four years at college. Young men graduating now must delay their further education and their own choice of business or profession. They must 'help to win a war. Many young women are so engaged, too, in nursing or other service. War has brought Steinmetz new emblems, the Minute Man Flag, our badge of merit: the servicetflag, our shield of honor, its twenty-two gold stars dedicated to the Steinmetz students who gave the "last full measure of devotion." lqcfured 0 ngieinmefz lac em r' ' ' r A " - '-1 : 'ff" W '- rv,-'w ,,-fw--ffv-wrv-:m-- , V ., Y. . .,,. t, mn , mf ,Z .YL,.jgQA f-J-ini-4 1fg3g"f,"Ft, "frm HQQQQ,--t Only by promising not to identify them were we able to get these pictures for reproduction in the Silver Streak.

M- Wondcfg muiew HISTORY OI' THE STEINMETZ STAR On Thursday, December 14, 1935, the first STAR was published. Miss Gertrude O'Connor was the sponsor: Dorothy Westgard was the first editor, cmd the initial staff consisted of Miss O'Connor's journalism class. Since that time, the STAR has come out every other Thursday, never once missing a deadline. That is no small accomplishment when holidays or other unforeseen events interrupt the schedule. Embarking on such an adventure in the waning days of the depression when cash was scarce and the average student allowance was next to nothing, took pioneering courage. With only a few subscriptions and a general lack of advertising, it was often difficult to make ends meet. Mr. Downey was in charge of financial affairs then, until 1936, during those early days of struggle. In the first semester the stories often lacked sparkle and life, but the staff always strove for accuracy. Each succeeding semester has seen changes and improvements until at the present time over two thousand subscriptions have been realized, and the STAR has received a rating of All-American, the next to the highest rating that can be attained by prep school papers. From 1937 to 1939, the financial affairs were handled by Mrs. Erna Hege. Since then, Miss Margaret Feely has taken care of the STAR's finances, as Well as handling the semi-annual subscription drive. On the editorial side, Miss O'Connor remained in charge until Iune, 1941, when she resigned from the sponsorship. Mrs. Esther Frey took over the super- vision of the work then, and she still retains the position of literary sponsor of the STAB. A ' 'fr ,N jfolo ieff . . we 0 lZACf0lf'g Among the trophies earned by Steinmetz teams or representatives during her first decade are these examples, gathered for a picture. There are two baseball trophies, awarded to the teams of 1939 and 1941. The handsome winged figure at the left was won by the Local History Club, in 1939. The same club brought to our school the lamp of learning you see beside the center baseball figure, this being won in the 1938 contest. The Local History Club for a third time brought home a trophy, the large cup second from the right, again in a contest conducted by the West Side Historical Society. Two baseball city championships and three historical contest trophies in ten years are an honorable record. We are justly proud of these. In the left background is a plague won by the Clean-Up Campaign in 1941. This is called the Community Service Award and shows Chiccgo's civic emblem. The shield at the top of the picture represents victory for the Steinmetz team in the Women's International Bowling Congress in 1940. The B.O.T.C. won the American Legion trophies in 1936, the cup at the left: in 1937, the cup at the extreme right of the picture: in 1939, the cup at center front of picture display: in 1941, when the figure second from left was presented: and in 1942, when the drum majorette at the right of the picture was awarded. Besides these marching trophies, the R.O.T.C. has won awards for marksman- ship and countless boys have won medals. The large plaque in the center of the picture is the Science Award, on which each year is inscribed the name of the highest ranking science student at Steinmetz. Sfrong eamd -.fd Sfeinmefz gncwfifcon ln only ten years, Steinmetz athletes have made such a good name for themselves that they are respected cmd feared by op- ponents in their contests. The record speaks well for this comparatively new high school. With the crushing defeat rendered Austin in the course of the l943 football season Steinmetz realized one of its fondest dreams. The grid men captained by Tom Neswold and including McCarthy, Mills and Chesney, won our first section title and took us to the city championship game against Phillips, further than any previous team had gone. Here we must takenote of the 1936 team, led by Tony Canadeo, that missed winning the section crown by the toss of a coin. Twice in its history the baseball team gained the city championship. In l939, with the great keystone combination, the Lorenz twins, and Kafara, Quandee and Opat- kiewicz on the team, Steinmetz defeated Lane in the finals to take its first prep baseball title. Two years later, this performance was repeated, with Farragut as the unfortunate victim. That year the attack was led by Bob Possehl's pitching, Dan Canadeo, Adams and Len Oszakewski, captain. Basketball's years were '42 and '43, when they reached the sectional playoffs. Some of the star per- forrners were McAdams, Kurth and Keany. Mr. Pfeil's bowlers won most of their games in 1940 and went to the semifinals. They were forced to submit to a superior Lane team. - In 1943 the Golf Team took its first trophy by defeating Lane High School's team. Play- ers for Steinmetz included Gaude, Bastian and Hookanson. In the 1941 season the seniors of the Swim- ming Team took fourth place in the city by Winning nineteen out of twenty-one dual meets. Some of the more valuable members of the team were Ken Alberts, lack Hendry and Ed Berge. In 1940 the Track Team rated as State Dis- trict Champions, or in other words city cham- pions since Chicago was a state district. Those who placed in the city went to a down- state meet. In that year Bill Napier took the city title in the 220 yard dash. Other team members were loe Vruno, Bob Frelich, Ray Mielke and lack Hendry.

The foundations were laid in 1930 and the steel erected, but the Work progressed slowly and only when federal aid provided funds could the building be completed, in 1934. The build- ing cost three and a-half million dollars and has been lauded as one of the best public high school buildings in the country. Classes began in September, 1934, with 2207 pu- pils. When the junior high schools were closed in 1935, Steinmetz had to add a ninth grade and the enrollment went so high the Sayre Branch had to be opened. In 1939, enrollment went up to 4246 students including the Sayre Branch membership. It is now around 3400. The only person who can boast that he was with Steinmetz more than ten years is our engineer cus- todian, Mr. Edward H. Bade. He came in 1930 and watched the construction of the building with the most profound care. Our engineer recalls that ridges twelve feet high had to be removed from the center of Barry and Wellington Avenues to provide passage for materials. One of the traditions of Steinmetz is Mr. Bade's talk to each incoming class of 1 B's. The first class graduated on February l, 1935, with 57 members to its credit. The first musical, "Chonita", was presented in April, 1935. May, 1935, saw the Steinmetz Civic League begun with its first big spring Clean-Up Drive. Members of the community were encouraged to aid in boosting and improving the neighborhood. That year also saw the beginning of the annual study trips to the nation's capital. The portrait of Charles Proteus Steinmetz was pre- sented to the school in 1938, by the General Electric Company. It is a beautiful oil painting executed by H. M. Mott Smith and presented by Mr. E. W. Allen, vice-president of the company. Among the prom- inent persons attending the ceremonies were Mayor Edward I. Kelly, Dr. William H. Iohnson, Superin- tendent of Schools, and Mr. George F. Cassell, Dis- trict Superintendent in charge of high schools. Mr. O'Hearn's portrait was unveiled on Friday, December 3, 1937. lt was painted by Oskar Gross and presented to the school by the graduating classes of 1938. The school felt elevated indeed when a chapter of the National Honor Society was installed on Iune 7, 1935. Mrs. Florence Young was the sponsor of this organization. Frank I. Reid, president of the first Iune class, planted the first ivy to climb the walls of Steinmetz. That ceremony is a respected tradition which has been solemnly kept through these ten years. Although well launched in music in all other respects, Steinmetz had no band until Capt. Dowse came to join the faculty, in 1937. On the very same day that the National Honor Soci- ety had its first meeting at Steinmetz, the first edition of the Silver Streak appeared. The sponsors were Mrs. Dorothy W. Bade and Mr. Perry Gifford. The Steinrnetz Flag was presented to the school by Mrs. Charles Roehl on behalf of the P.T.A. in 1936. The design of the flag is the creative work of a student, Frank Pikrone. Cooperation, service, schol- arship, culture, loyalty and sports represented by the six bolts of lightning in the design stand for the six-fold motto of our school. The Show of Shows was the talk of the month of March, 1936, sponsored by the physical education teachers for the fund for needy pupils. May, 1933, saw the first water ballet at Steinmetz. Named the School of Fish, it was quite a spectacular event. This month also found the R.O.T.C. boys shining their buttons for the first federal inspection of their unit. The opera club and boys and girls of the glee clubs gave a musical called "Le1aWala" on May 26, 1936. The director of the orchestra at Steinmetz then was Mr. H. Ray Staater. May, 1936, also brought the Steinmetz Clean-Up Campaign an honorable mention in the city-wide contests. Sigma Quad sponsored the "Foolish Follies of l937" in December, 1937. It was a hilarious event and the scripts were the work of a student, Everett Glave. Mr. 1-lenze was the club sponsor at that time. The Quad also distributed Christmas baskets for the needy with the aid of the Dardanelles. The P.T.A. gave a Christmas play, using student talent. Guests attending were asked to bring canned food for the Steinmetz needy. The big first of social events was the first Senior Prom, held at the Belden-Stratford Hotel on Iune 5, 1936. As the club activities, classes and musical depart- ments moved along to greater achievement, so did the athletics progress at Steinmetz. A few cheer- leaders appeared to spur the players on at early games. As time Went on, greater athletic prowess was developed and the cheerleading squad grew in number as the fans turned out in greater volume and cheered with increased enthusiasm and school spirit. Steinrnetz was prominent in football in 1936. We tied with Roosevelt and Schurz for the North Section title. We played Schurz at Spencer Coals for a Homecoming and Dad's Day in November, 1936. Tony Canadeo was the captain. He and Bob Hep- burn, Alfred Schwass and Richard Rossi, team mem- bers, Were selected for all-city teams. We were tied but lost the toss to Schurz that year. The team Was rewarded by the students when the Sigma Quad gave a football dinner in their honor. Our basketball team reached the semi-finals in mon ntmfinff nnninst Calumet in that game. 1002 -n1nr11"l1'1r'f f'1f'1!T'lT1S1' il 'I ODD, ,,1n.lcfJ1':11'1r'T f'ffT!'T'11'1S11' QM:-fl? .LEARN frown? One of many community events was the "Night of Stars", an evening to be remembered for its array of talent, its brilliant performances. The G.A.A., a very young organization, was found to have the aston- ishing membership of l,ll0. It was guessed at the time that it was the largest extra-curricular activity group listed in the city. The first president was Ioan Iovini and Miss Anne G. Rolence was the first sponsor. Our bare campus was the bone of contention among students for some time and in September, 1936, a three-cent tag day was held for the purpose of buying grass seed to be sown on the grounds. The true solution came much later, after some earn- est efforts directed by a committee of the P.T.A. had borne fruit. Tons and tons of good dirt had to be brought in to cover the hard clay, and then months of work were needed before this ground was prop- erly prepared for the landscaping. Eventually, it was completed and on November 10, 1939, we saw the dedication of our campus. It was the epitome of pride for those who fought for the landscaping of the ground and also for the Steinmetz students beholding their "Steinmetz Beautiful". That same fall saw the interior of the building beautified. The walls were cleaned and painted, woodwork varnished, desks in classrooms refinished and a general decorating orgy resulted in a more beautiful school throughout. The delicate coloring in the small auditorium, the soft tones in the offices and even the more substantial colors used in the classrooms were attractive. The inconvenience caused by detours around the ladders and paints and scaffolding for weeks was well repaid by the outcome. The first Band Concert was held in March, 1937. An operetta, "Hollywood Bound", was produced about then by Mrs. Elisabeth Sorensen and Mr. Wil- lard L. Groom of the music department. At the 13th competitive festival at Roosevelt High School in 1938, our girls' choruses rated an They repeated the following year. Bow Day had become a tradition at Steinmetz by this time. The bows are made and sold by sophmore girls and the proceeds have usually gone to supple- ment the Clean-Up treasury. One of the big events that took place about then was the "Open House" conducted in the evening. The entire school was open to visitors, and the people of the community were invited to come and see classes and shops in session and meet the fac- ulty. One of the persons many parents wanted to meet was lVlrs. Benson, our matron since the opening of Steinmetz, for she had befriended so many of the girls at school that their parents wanted to thank her personally. ' From a new school without even external "trim- mings", Steinmetz had developed by now into one rich with traditions. This picture shows some of the souvenirs gathered by a typical graduate. With two baseball championships, a good record in track, swimming, football, basketball, golf and bowl- ing to our credit as the years rolled on, Steinmetz continued to make great strides in music, art and other fields as well. ln the first all-city Music Festival of Chicago Pub- lic Schools on March 28, 1939, our choruses and band participated. In the orchestra competition on May 13, 1942, our orchestra received an "S" rating. The choruses have repeatedly rated high grades. Steinmetz can boast of every sort of musical group from dance bands to a symphony orchestra, from soloists to choirs, from trios to concert orchestra, from swing band to a full concert band and an B.O.T.C. Band. Each of these musical aggregations has its part to play, but a debate once rose in Mr. Bradley's class in Public Speaking as to the relative merits of Classic vs. Iazz Music. Mr.7Groom tried to settle the argu- ring-it but we bgieire it is still a rnootnquesfdnzfsg-1 Steinmetz was featured on "Citizens of Tomorrow" in May, 1940. That same year, the Steinmetz and Foreman orchestras played a joint concert at the Grant Park Band Shell preceding the usual concert. The name of Curtis Koch was reverenced at Stein- metz in May, 1942. He was the first of our boys who was killed in action and our first gold star is dedi- cated to him. On May 27, 1943, the Roll of Honor, handsomely carved wooden plaque set with the names of our alumni in service, was dedicated at memorial serv- ices. It was donated by the Student Council, Ir. 'Girls' Choir, Boys' Choir, Office Service Club andll943 class of Iune. A second plaque has been provided by the Ianuary class of 1944 and various clubs. Steinmetz has done an all-out war job. The draft registration and sugar rationing registration were two early contributions. The gift of a fifty dollar war bond, sent to the Presi- dent by the Polish Club, was an early response to the challenge war presents. The war effort was furthered with the collection of silk stockings for parachutes. Ioseph Ronto headed the list of contributors with 500. The scrap metal drive in 1943 had everyone rum- aging for usable materials. Radios were collected for use in the training of government radio operators. Books have been brought for the Victory Book Drives. But the biggest collection of all is the collection of war bonds. Steinmetz was awarded the Minute Man Flag in May, 1943. lim Brophy, as president of the Student Council, and Mr. Ramsey, assistant principal of the school, accepted the flag from Mr. H. D. Crotty of the United States Treasury Department. It is still flying proudly. The Steinmetz Flag, too, is high, as always. ,f, ,, ig? F 1 2 . f 'w , .

Q eela in .70ucA MOM ogdv Mi" Begun in October, 1941, the Service Men's Com- mittee has compiled a card index, in constant use for addresses and birth-dates. One of the most popular activities of the committee is the sending of birth-day cards, each of them signed by Mr. O'I-learn and by teachers who know them best. These appeal to the boys even more than the Easter and Christmas greetings they receive from Steinmetz because birthdays are personal occasions. The letter file contains let- ters frorn former students. Recent communica- tions are posted on a bulletin board, so that students may find inspiration in reading them. At any time of day between classes, one or more students can be seen examining with hands that almost seem reverent these com- munications from their brothers in arms. Any visitors on furlough are warmly wel- comed by all Steinmetz teachers and students. Hardly a day passes without some uniformed guests. These sign the visitors' register in the office and receive a visitor's pass, honored guests of their alma mater. SERVICE MEN'S COMMITTEE Almost twenty-three hundred former students of Steinmetz are in the service. They are scattered in hundreds of camps and hospitals, fighting on many fronts. Keeping in touch with the boys and girls of Steinmetz is a colossal task, the project of the Service Men's Com- mittee. Miss Ruby Yetter is chair- man of this committee. Other fac- ulty members on the committee are Mrs. Elma E.'.Boughton, Miss B. Pearl Dierks, Miss Iosephine D. Farr, Miss Ruth H. Kilgour, Miss Agnes M. Polka, Mrs. Esther H. Frey, Mr. lames M. Downey, Mr. Herbert A. Iackson, Mr. Cornelius F. Henze, Miss Agatha A. Posse and Mr. Stanley Nalecz. Enthusi- astic student secretaries are Shir- ley Anderson, Ruth Meyer, lean Harges, and Marge Winter.

MR. GROVER C. RHMSEY Assistant Principal since Stein- metz opened in 1934, when 2816 students appeared on the first day, it has been the duty of Mr. Ramsey to organize the school. That means he must arrange 4 pupil and teacher programs and find rooms for classes and study groups. Through the first trying days when not only the fresh- men were bewildered, when equipment was still being in- stalled, through the peak of en- rollment in 1940, with 4000 students, on through steadier times in the three thousands, Mr. Ramsey has steered Stein- metz on its course. He has shown his ability as a co-pilot m an of the school. His jovial manner charms everyone and his capa- bility is acknowledged by all.

It is just inside the city, and more than half the pupils come from Elmwood Park. Mr. McBride has been the principal all along. Of the twelve teachers, only two were there from the start, Miss Hainbecker and Miss Prouty. About four hundred students get their first two years' work at Sayre, then go to Steinmetz. They follow a well- rounded program of studies and social activities and even have a newspaper of their own. As these pic- tures testity, the young people at Sayre are happy. Their record attests to their patriotism, their good scholarship and their success in general. UPPER PICTURE: Friendliness is the style at Sayre Branch. CIRCLE: Printing is Cl popular topic.

Groom, its pres- ent conductor. lt grew out of the need for a musical organization to play for our graduation exercises and for assemblies and which could represent our school in con- tests with other city high schools. Rehearsals correspond to a laboratory course, being two periods in length. The most important events on the orchestra's calendar are the four symphonic concerts which it presents at Steinmetz High School regularly each year. SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA W STANDING, LEFT TO RIGHT: R.

At all concerts only the works of the masters are played. In two recent concerts two new numbers were introduced to the school and the city. These were "Classical l'azzical" and "Ode to a Marine". Many student soloists appear at the symphony concerts. Instrumentalists have performed some of the finest Concertos and sonatasg vocalists have sung operatic arias. Besides giving the regular concerts, the orchestra has started something new this year, some midday luncheon concerts. The music is of the lighter symphonic type. It is a pleasure to hear melodious music for twenty minutes after a busy morning in classes and laboratories and shops. A musical inter- lude in a hectic day is surely a treat to the students. lust one look at their faces would assure anyone that they are appreciative of the musical fare provided for them. -iii Cl"QCl,fQ5 66 of .SEOMNJ Under the able direc- tion of Mr. Groom, our orchestra has come out of each city competition with a grade of superior or excellent. In the Civics Room are many plaques awarded to the orchestra for its outstanding work in the annual competitions. They are a tribute to the interest of the youth of Steinmetz High School in culture. Many students have learned conducting and playing so Well they have made a success in music professionally because of this. 75 SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA STANDING, LEFT TO RIGHT: D. Biging, E. Sathern, I.

At present the orchestra consists of a full complement of strings, flutes, oboes, clarinets, bassoon, trumpets, trombones, French horn and tuba and the com- plete percussion department. In the future the orchestra hopes to purchase stage risers so that they may be seated correctly when in concert. Another one of their dreams is for a flexible sound board so that the sounds of the different instruments may be reflected better. Mr. O'Hearn has been a great factor in the success of the orchestra. His enthusiasm for the fine arts has encouraged his support for all of its events. lt is evident that this enthusiasm has been passed on to the students. Their ever increasing support of concerts by the orchestra is proof of that fact. lVlay the next decade in the history of the orchestra equal that so far attained. 3 f .

We have a Boys' Choir, a Senior Girls' Choir, a Iunior Girls' Choir, and even a Freshman-Sophomore Girls' Choir. They all do their share to enrich the cultural life of the students at Steinmetz, as do the orchestras, bands and other groups devoted to artistic fields of endeavor. All these choirs have their specific places, and the large mixed choral group has a very special place indeed. It is composed of boys and girls with fine voices and a desire to work very hard to achieve good music. They generally become even more interested in music after they join the choral society so that they remain for more than one semester. There are some members in these pictures who have belonged to the group for years. The long weeks and' months of Working together give a choir more depth than any other one factor. The oneness develops and is felt in the portrayal of the music that is sung. This long-range preparation and the variety of voices attain- able only in a mixed group such as this are responsible in part for the good performances we have come to associate With the Steinrnetz Choral Society. The all girl and all boy choirs are limited to certain types of songs, fine and well handled. But the variety and range that come in a group of all sorts of voices provide the opportunity for a distinctly different kind of musical composition. The many faceted tones of an organ can be reproduced by the range available in a good mixed choir. Shadings and tonal depth are possible as in no other singing group. ROW 3: L. Mahlman, W. Steed, T.

Good direction is needed to bring a fusion of the elements, to develop latent possibilities in the individuals and then to blend them in harmonious manner for the pleasing rendition of song. Steinmetz is fortunate in having a splendid faculty in the music department. Two of these instructors join forces in conducting this choir. Mrs. Harriet B. Calverley, head of the department, and Mr. Willard L. Groom, in charge of the orchestras and the Senior Girls' Choir, are the co-directors of the Steinmetz Choral Society. Either one of them is entirely capable of handling this group efficiently, but by working together they do a particularly fine piece of work. The choir has brought good music to us on numerous occa- sions. It has made a splendid record in city competitions, too. Among our memories of the choral society's performances are various pageants, such as "Hiawatha" last year, the Christmas pageants of other years, and a rather recent appearance with the Symphony Orchestra in presenting a new number, "Ode to a Marine". Stellar roles went to two boys with deep, re- sounding voices, Martin Pohlman and Louis Mahlman, with the choir playing softly upon the tones of a great human organ, in the background. Not only does the choir benefit by the work of the in- dividual members, but they in their turn gain through the instruction they receive as mcmbers of the choral society. Rich are the rewards of the faithful ones! They improve their own voices and do a better job than before in solo work. Many of the choir members are so encouraged by their growth in vocal powers and control and good musicianship as applied to singing that they step out of the choir into individual work. That is the old story of leadership after one learns to take orders. Good habits are established for the members of the group: the same good habits apply to the individual. REAR: I. Iones, E.

This orchestra was formed about five years ago, by Mr. Willard L. Groom, who also conducts the Symphony Orchestra at Steinmetz. This orchestra may be regarded as preparatory for sym- phony practice, although many students play in both for the added practice and experience this gives them. The splendid repertoire of the Concert Orchestra is due to its fine library of music. Twice a year this group performs in a recital. At these performances many fine soloists are presented to the audience. In this orchestra, the members are given an opportunity to direct. This is fine training for them, inspiring and enjoyable.

Mr. Willard Groom, who sponsors the Fine Arts Guild, also acts as advisor in this new venture. The four groups comprising this musical society are a woodwind ensemble, a string quartet and two piano trios. The performers all show great talent and an abiding love of fine music. They show this when they play. Rich and harmonious are the tones of the piano when an artist handles the keyboard. Soothing indeed are the soft strains of the stringed instru- ments when good musicians move their bows across them. This fine music is ours to enjoy at recitals and concerts and as a musical background for faculty parties in the Civics Room and in the small Assembly Hall. During the Christmas season, the chamber music artists take turns playing in the foyer at the lunch periods. The beautiful music blends well with the gleaming tree, a visual counter- part to the tone pictures painted for us by these artists whose palettes have strings. UPPER PICTURE. ALL GIRLS' TRIO: H.

During their beginning semesters, the girls considered themselves untrained and inexperienced, but much hard Work, practice and training have made them one of the best of girls' choirs in town. We think so, even if the girls are modest about their ability. They sing light opera, melod' rs and popular y sing with gusto. blending of a hundr d b les from some of the maste songs. ln them all, the ing .gyfraiglzf ncllfonfz jlreir .jwlecuffd IUNIOR GIRLS' CHOIR All out for Steinmetz boys in the service ot the old gent with the whiskers-that seems to be the motto these fair lassies have adopted. To uphold the motto they have held numerous roller skating parties, with some of the proceeds being turned over to help purchase the Servicemen's Plaque and some of it given to the Servicemen's Committee. In addition, they write to boys in the service who were formerly in their sponsor's music classes. Services to the school include the excel- lent music presented at the Christmas, Memorial Day and Arrnistice Day assemblies and at the dedication of the Plaque. Despite these many activities, the girls of the Iunior Girls' Choir never lose sight of their chief aim, to sing for the sheer joy of singing. That ideal probably ac- counts tor the quality of their performances, for a certain sense of freedom from effort and a light touch permeate their presentations. Not only do the girls find pleasure in singing to- gether, but they hold parties for pra.ctically any occa- sions, birthdays, Christmas, St. Patrick's Day. Every year the girls celebrate St. Patrick's Day with Mr. O'Hearn. His favorite songs are sung, among them "Danny Boy", "Irish Eyes" and "Smilin' Through". Who can say what high pinnacles of fame may be attained by some of these girls, now singing with others, learning much and enjoying what they learn? On some tomorrow some of these members of the group may be soloists, prima donnas in the opera, or parts of trios or other choirs, adding glory to Steinmetz. 4 you 7 Y xglvfff -Q.

It has done much to back up the players, the enthusiasm of "Cap" being a bright spot at all events. The R.O.T.C. Band was organized in 1938 and has been progressive and active ever since. It has appeared for inspection since then. The Band played for graduation exercises on many occasions, since its first such performance in Ianuary, 1937. The first evening band concert was given in March, 1937. This has been an annual affair since that time, always well received. In April, 1937, the Band entered the High School Band Contest for the first time. It won a good rating then and has continuously made a fine record since that time.

Ray Staater, at that time a music teacher at Steinmetz, saw great possibilities in the voices of our girls in the school in the west. He had visions of a new enterprise: he called for recruits for an all girls' choir. The response was encouraging, and the "Senior Girls' Choir" was born in October, 1935. Since then, it has continued with uninterrupted success, each year adding new glories. For the past several years, Mr. Willard L. Groom has been its sponsor. The results speak well for his leadership. Initiation into the club takes place at a candle ceremony where the standards of "Higher Sensitivity", "Loyalty" and "Culture" are explained to the novices. A grand party climaxes the initia- tion. The repertoire of the choir is chosen regardless of the difficulty of the music. The girls sing some of the world's great-est music by Bach, Brahms, Williams and others. Places of engagements are concerts at the Medinah Club, at Orchestra Hall, in neigh- borhood churches, downtown buildings and at special conven- tions. The success of the Senior Girls' Choir is demonstrated by the fact that it has always been awarded a grade of "Superior" at the annual choral contests. Up to the present this grade is being zealously guarded, and it is still being maintained by hard work. Officers of the organization are elected each spring and fall. The entire management of the club is highly organized. The music is handled by capable librarians, the capes and berets are cared for by a committee of reliable gmembers. The girls of this society are very proud of their handsome silver and green capes, a gift to them from the Parent-Teacher Association of our school. HOW 3: C. Searls, E. Conrad, A. Huettenrauch, G.

A small group at first, it has grown to a membership of seventy. The choir sang in the Spring Festival at the International Amphitheatre in 1939, and won an "Excel- lent" in four choral competitions. The Boys' Choir has presented two operettas and a melodrama here and spon- sored four skating parties, outings and dances. The choir buys all its own music, two familiar numbers being Herbert's "Sweet Hearts" and "The Riff Song" by Rom- berg., The choir furnishes soloists, too. Dorothy Morris, first accompanist for Miss Kilgour, now attends Chicago Teachers College. Naomi Miers, present accompanist, and Deloris Geisser, soprano soloist, supply the feminine touch. The Boys' Choir announces with pride that it has two hundred and thirty boys in the service of our country. The choir contributed S250 to the Servicemen's Honor Roll and has contributed to the Service Men's Fund. They have worked diligently on the foregoing and deserve special Commendation for years of fine work. ROW 4: S. Puchalski, H. Kissane, D. Casterton, I. Locata, H. Faulkner, F. Lawdensky, A. Kiney, A.

Girls' Choir grew to such proportions that she thought it might be a good idea to start a Freshman-Sophomore Choir for the younger girls These pictures prove that the idea took hold immediately. More than sixty girls responded to the first call for singers. The choir is very popular with the members, now that it is in full operation. Only first and second year girls may join this choir, but they need not pass any test or take a try-out to belong. All freshman and sophomore girls are Welcome. All they need is the desire to sing. There is no limit on the number of girls who may belong to the choir. Miss Farr welcomes all girls who come The girls are singing all types of songs. They have not yet made any public appearances as a group, but they sing with a sweet, fresh quality that would be a treat to listeners. In due time, these newest choir singers of Steinmetz will undoubtedly make their public debut and add to the brilliant history of musical performances at Steinmetz. Iust now they sing for fun When the members of the Freshman-Sophomore Choir advance beyond the second year in school, they may join one of the other Steinmetz choirs. UPPER PICTURE. FINE ARTS GUILD.

This organization, formed four years ago, is sponsored by the Senior Girls' Choir, with Mr. Groom as advisor. The Guild gives two recitals a year. This group is composed of singers, vocalists, pianists, cellists, trios, quartets, and even an orchestra: in- cludes also the Steinmetz Starlets, a group of twelve girls from the choir who perform as a unit. Having en- joyed performances of the Fine Arts artists, we hope that they will long continue working. STAGE CREW Colonel Moody's staff works behind the scenes, no matter what the event in the Steinmetz Assembly Hall. These young men know just how to mix the lights for the best lighting effects, and how to control the sound of the microphone. Lights and sound con- trol and the handling of furniture for plays and other affairs come their way. They manage them all in masterful manner, from bleachers to the grand piano. So deftly and silently do they manage their duties, that they never get the immediate reward of hand- clapping applause. OFFICE MESSENGERS When a special report must be delivered in a hurry, Mrs. Gladys Elbe calls on one of the office mes- sengers to expedite the document. In a big organiza- tion like Steinmetz High School, many different services are quietly and efficiently performed with- out much fanfare. Few people are even aware of some of these little tasks that aggregate the whole matter of operating a fine school. But each of these real Steinmetz boosters deserves our gratitude for his part in keeping things going. 0JQl"I'l W70fAQl"5 .JJQ60 OMIA SA00 P. T. R. nized on The Steinmetz High School Parent-Teacher Association was orga October 22, 1934, at the invitation of Mr. O'Hearn. From that day to this, the P. T. A. has been a vital part of our school. The first president was Mrs. Charles Roehl. Other presidents have been Mrs. Homer Thompson, Miss Mary McTigue, Mrs. George Houtsinger, Mrs. Gutsave Ernsting, Mrs. Lee Vernon, and at present, Mrs. I. Amundsen, ' W.L.S. Barn Dance, Carnival and Money making projects have been the Bazaar, the play "Shannons of Broadway", a variety show, rummage sales, card and bunco parties and bake sales. Donations have been made to Student Aid and other funds. Students have been financed on trips to music contests out of town. The P.T.A. .presented the school with a microphone. cr school flag, B.O.T.C. flags, clothes racks and other items too numerous to mention. Through Mrs. Henry Hansen's untiring efforts, the campus beautiful became a fact. A well-rounded program of activities brings members to the school even in these busy times, for they hold our school dear even as We hold our P.T.A. friends very dear. TOP PICTURE.

Its first officers were Richard Young, presi- dent: Glenn Marsh, vice-president: Lillian Seges, secretary: and Iames Essen, treasurer. Charter members included twin Robert Young, Ioni Higham, Charlotte Sullivan, Gini Ostring, Paul Breitsprecher and other school celebrities. Later presidents have been Iames Arcucci and Iames Brophy. The purpose of the club is to stimulate interest in creative Writing by serving as audience and clinic for the school's budding authors. Many interesting programs have been pre- sented, featuring original numbers by members and including short stories, verse, plays, skits and essays. Members also participate in literary tournaments in competition with students from other high schools. Lily Barker Won first prize in a poetry contest in l942, and has recently had a poem accepted for publication in a volume of high school verse. "Prom Date", an original one-act play by Richard Young, was the highlight of the first year of the club's existence. ln the past year many patriotic skits, written by Pauline Calderon, Rose Spiller and Shirley Stein, have been presented. Variety in programs is obtained by humorous essays, funny stories or unusual little poems, and until their graduation in Ianuary, the favorite comedy team consisted of lim Brophy and Hugh Hefner. This group has contributed generously to the Red Cross Book Drive: has bought a set of records of Dickens' "Christmas Carol" for use by the English department: and has sponsored an extra page in the Silver Streak for our West Section Football Championship team. "As We Like It" sponsors a semi-annual sale of stationery to finance its activities. STANDING: E. Reininger, C. Waller, R. Gaus, I. Sereno, A. Zika, E. Kurgan, R. Lubway, E.

RED CROSS CLUB Under the guidance of Miss Helen Papenbrook and Miss Bose Baer, the Red Cross Club has participated in annual roll calls and drives since 1935. With the co-operation of the Industrial Arts, Art, Music and Household Arts departments, members have made menu covers, dolls, Christmas stockings, ash trays and scrap-books, to mention but a few of their projects. Great progress was made under the presi- dencies of Earl Smith and Lorraine Schmidt. Delegates were sent to Washington on several occasions. The club regularly sends delegates to downtown meetings for mutual inspiration and new ideas. Miss Louise Viehoff has taken over co-sponsorship with Miss Baer, and both sponsors are ardent workers. PRE-MEDICS CLUB Visits to Northwestern Medical School, to the County Hospital, to Wesley Memorial Hospital, to stock shows and chemical plants, are arranged for the Pre-Medics by their sponsor, Miss Sylvia Gruener. Medical movies are shown at the meetings, on subjects pertaining to disease, anatomy and surgery. Reports are made by members on new developments in the field of medicine and allied subjects. Club mem- bers prepare slides for microscopic study and delve into the realm of science as related to medicine in this manner, too. No wonder the Pre-Medics Club is so enthusiastically attended and so thoroughly enjoyed. The members interested in the medical field find much to help them here, actual findings, techniques, acquaintance with the different schools, and the pleasure of discussion and study with students who are kindred spirits. The figure shown is "Tommy", useful in demonstrations, and never guilty of uttering a sound. I x REAR, LEFT TO RIGHT: M. Conoboy V. Barton, F. Smetters, R. Kane, I. Bern reuter, L. Lombardo, D.

MMA .STD in Juv! menf STUDENT COUNCIL The Student Council represents the students of Steinmetz in matters pertaining to school conditions in general, rules of conduct on the school grounds and any special drives for funds for various purposes. Each division and each club has a representative and an alternate in the Student Council. Any one of these is privileged to bring up for discussion any question that arises in the division or club. L This body sets up rules for service awards and rifle awards, and make the awards that are earned by students. It supervises all school clubs, issuing charters to groups that wish to organize. These must abide by the Council's rules regarding membership and dues, time of meetings and filing of the constitutions and minutes of meet- ings. The time of meetings is set by a committee of the Student Council to prevent conflicts of time. This alone is a valuable function of the Council, since it permits the active student who so desires to belong to various clubs and not find himself limited because the time of meetings conflicts. A supervision of the minutes enables the Student Council to keep an eye on the clubs that represent Steinmetz, lest any false note threaten. Although there has been no trouble, it is wise to avert the possibility. Dues could easily become a trouble- some matter to the individual student. The modest limit set by the Council safeguards democracy in this respect. The Student Court, a branch of the Council, is empowered to try students who infringe upon the rules of conduct established for the school. Each semester group is represented by a justice, so that all who come before this tribunal may be truly judged with an impartial, unbiased viewpoint. eforefienfafion llfwffzouf jaxafion Our ninety-six divisions are represented in the Student Council, a cross-cut group of Steinmetz' youth. They argue questions of school pol- icies, true. But they do more effective things than talk. They support concerts and assemblies, and them- selves give money making programs. The Student Council has donated large sums of money to the school fund, f QM' the Servicemen's Committee for the sending oi boxes to Stein- metz boys in the service and for the bulletin board, the Thanksgiv- ing drives and other worthy causes. Steinmetz can always rely on the Student Council to back any Worthwhile fund. f 1 , ,' X f , X f ' Vw I WX If W W5 yy On this sunny day the members of the Student Council came outdoors to pose for a picture. They generally hold forth in Room 202, a large room that sometimes seems too small to contain the enthusiasm engendered by some topic brought up for discussion. But the gavel of the president restores order and the guidance of the capable and popular sponsor, Miss B. Pearl Dierks, is another refuge from too heated words. The latest topic for discussion has been the disposal of the five hundred dollars earned through the paper drive. The Council counted the ballots of the students of the Whole school on that decision. Now the interpretation of those ballots has led to discussion, needless to state. STUDENT COUNCIL COMMITTEE CHHIRMEN. STANDING: E. Lavine, Building Conditions. SEATED: I. Borson, Social Centers: I.

Wherever it has the jurisdic- tion, it handles things as efficiently as possible. The officers are certainly aware of their important duties and try to live up to the trust of their fellow students. Miss Dierks is at hand to help them and smooth their way. jim 'P y owe was om arm! ngumidfg NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY A great dream is realized when a senior is invited to join the National Honor Society.

Even before formally banding together, outstanding girls were active at Steinmetz, helping in many ways to get the new school into good running order. The girls wrote their own constitution and initiation pledge, which charac- terizes the high principles of the organization. Mrs. Boughton was the first sponsor and remained the sponsor of this group until three years ago, when Miss Kinderman took her place. The Dardanelles adopted their name after hearing a member of the Constitution Committee describe the original in this manner: "The Dardanelles is the narrow strait by which one enters the rich lands about the Aegean and the Sea of Marmora. Whole nations have sought that strait and fought to control it, knowing that the riches of the hinterlands belonged to him who controlled the Dardanelles. lt is a narrow place, and the finding was often difficult in the early nautical days, just as the path that we must choose if we wish to live happily sometimes seems to us girls too narrow to find. But like the rich lands to the east, the wealth of opportunity and satisfac- tion that is ours if we seek, find, and choose the path to worthwhile things, makes the hunting valuable. We girls want Steinmetz to have certain ideals we have been talking about. Let's get possession of those ideals in the Dardanelles, and see to it that all the opportunities of Steinmetz are ours: and that underclass girls at least know the meaning of "Steinmetz beautiful" as we understand it, before they become seniors." jAQZ5Q QQPJQHQZ Q6 THEIR CLUB WORK SUCCEEDS Under the leadership of Mrs. Elma M. Boughton, the girls of the Dardanelles, who very early raised their scholarship requirement to an "E" average, truly lived up to their high standards of service to their school and to their ideals. In the past three years, the faculty advisor has been Miss Ethel Kinderrnan. The group is fortunate in both cases in its leadership. Both sponsors pay tribute to the girls in the club. Projects of a permanent nature are the care of our beautiful Civics Room, the taking of identification pic- tures of all students in school, furnishing hostesses for the Parent-Teacher Association and other special events, the servicemen's tag days, and the semi-annual teas for the freshman mothers. These latter have been temporarily discontinued, due to heavy schedules for the mothers, but everyone concerned hopes for a resumption of this fine tradition. The annual sale of football tokens or chrysanthemums is another money-making project of the Dardanelles. Until relieved by the lr. Service Club, the Dardanelles had charge of the Thanksgiving collections. Former presidents are Dorothy Benning, Lucile Schmidt, Mildred Williams, Gladys Bailey, lane Hooks, Mildred Alexander, Bette Belle Cook, Frances Kotfila, and Priscilla Hennes. Besides helping the Infantile Paralysis Fund and selling Easter seals the Dardanelles are concentrating efforts on behalf of the Service Men's Com- mittee. They helped to purchase the second Honor Roll Plaque, and the proceeds of their annual sale of Steinmetz stickers Went to this committee this year. Previously, this money went into their own projects. ROW 4: I. Broberg. A. Zitella, C. Fallt, D. McCartney, I. Schroeder, L. Zarko. R. Bachar, A. Hink, D. Weaver, A. Arntzen, I. Westman, R.

Mr. Cornelius Henze was its first sponsor. The name of this club always calls for interpretation. Sigma is the Greek letter "S"5 Quad is the number 4. The name means "The 4 S's"5 they are Service, Scholarship, Sportsmanship and Spirit. The club helps other school societies, promotes sales of tickets, backs school activities like the paper drive, scrap drive and radio collections. Members Work with committees on public relations, delinquency problems and social affairs. Mr. Swem, now in the service, succeeded the first sponsor, and now Mr. Downey is steer- ing the "Quad". 1 1 Z0 'Q if I R. SERVICE Although the club did not obtain a charter until l939, there is evidence of its activity before that date. In 1938, the girls presented the play "Rip Van Winkle". ln 1938, too, they adopted the handling of the Thanksgiving Collection as a pennanent project, at the suggestion of Miss Boughton. The first sponsor of the Ir. Service Club was Miss Drake, now teaching at Marshall High School. After her departure, Mrs. Dorothy O. Knipp took over the guardian- ship ot this service club. At this time, due to program conflicts, she is being supplanted by Miss Mary E. Collopy. Besides the Thanksgiving collection, the girls take care of the Infantile Paralysis Drive every Winter. A recent addition to the club's activities is the sale of tickets for Symphony Orchestra concerts. A variety of stunts are employed to stimulate late contributions and sales, such as after-lunch plays, posters and giant thermometers. One contribution especially appreciated by Steinmetz girls is the installation of Washroom mirrors, even by these E students. BACK ROW. LEFT TO RIGHT: R. Tennini, D. Eddy, M Wales, D. Wissing, D.

Louise Viehoft consented to take over the club. Miss Viehoff has training and experience in abundance and is an enthusiastic sponsor. The interest of the students can best be measured by the large membership of the club, as evidenced on this page.

Back in 1935, Miss Bolle's newly organized group presented a three-act comedy by Iuliet Tompkins, "The Millionaire". A year later, after a poster contest had been conducted for publicity, the dramatic club produced "The Patsy." By then, the play given each winter by the Green Curtain Players had become a tradition at Steinmetz. Some of the productions have been "The Ghost Flies South", "Tish", H320 College Avenue", "Growing Pains", "Six- teen in August" and "Mummy and the Murnps". All of them have been overwhelmingly successful because the club and the sponsor have always considered the taste of the students in the selection of the plays. Casts, too, have been carefully chosen, and have worked hard to portray their roles convincingly. This year, the Green Curtain Players have been con- fronted with fire ordinance complications which made the selection of a suitable play difficult. As the annual goes to press, club members are still hoping to overcome this trouble and produce a play. ,Q f yiyinufe mn - - - ear Wanna!

Lois Bergh, morale building students were organized last year to further the sale of War bonds and stamps and to promote other war effort. The waste paper drive was an outstanding success, promoted by the Minute Men, assisted by H.O.T.C., Clean-Up and Sigma Quad personnel. The scrap metal collections have been another vital proj- ect of this highly necessary, ever industrious club. The north ticket booth is headquarters for the daily task of buying stamps and placing orders for bonds. Delegates from the ninety-six divisions come here to handle these tokens of participation in the financing of the war, our shares in freedom and victory. In the Fourth War Loan Drive alone, the Minute Men and their hard-hitting sponsor sold 520,375 worth of bonds. Hats off to the Minute Men! They keep our Minute Man flag flying.

STEIN STEN Organized in April, 1935, the purpose of the Stein Sten Club is to give training and experience to students interested in obtaining future business em- ployment. The activities of the club are arranged by the sponsors, Miss Vaughan and Mrs. Beach. These activities include outside speakers, visits to business shows, exhibitions and demonstrations of business machines. Points may be accumulated for shorthand speed and accuracy, typing speed, service to the school, operation of office machines, stencil cutting and mim- eographing, for form and appearance of work, for personal traits and achievements. When a student has 500 points out of a possible 750, she receives a service bar. The club also has attractive member- ship pins. EDITORIAL STAFF LEFT TO RIGHT: R. Gervais, Sports Editor: E.

Guided by their advisor, Mrs. Esther Frey, they turn out our fine school paper once every two Weeks. Of course, the printer helps, and the printing press and quite a quantity of paper are needed, too, these things being very essential in putting out a newspaper. No sooner is an issue off the press than the staff begins to work on the next edition. Ah! But how those two weeks ily! For the reporter it is tough work: for the editors it is twice as hard. CThe sponsor was not consulted about her worries? The reporter interviews someone to get a story. Then he gets busy on various angles and details, working against time, keeping those five W's of journalism in mind. The tive w's, in case you are not a member of the ink-breathing brotherhood, are "Who, what, when, where, why." The page editors take the burden here, correcting errors, revising, cutting articles to fit available space. Next the printer gets the "stuff", and eventually the engraved cuts of pictures. Galley sheets come back for the lay-outs, proofreading and last-minute additions. Staff members burn the proverbial midnight oil doing justice to their studies and the newspaper. They work hard but have a lot of fun doing so. BUSINESS STAFF STANDING. R. Sampson, D. Besch, L. Bachar, M. Chones, E. Friborg, D. Dea- con. SEATED: M. Kirkeby, L. Scharek, M. Ierabek, I. Broberg, M.

The subscription drive at the beginning of each semester finds this segment of the Star busier than a woman looking for a lost ration book. Division representatives have helped the staff to raise the circulation past the two thousand mark. Last September, in cooperation with Miss Feely, the Staff presented the second session of that World famous CPD production, "Putting out the Steinmetz Star". Everyone on the staff thought it was very good and some of the audience seemed pleased, too. The Star truly plays an astral role in the hearts of all Steinmetz alumni and alumnae. Many of the students in school think Well of it, also. Shining brilliantly among prep papers in the country, the Star represents sky-high ideals in high school journalism. By aid of pictures, editorials, feature stories and news items, staunch support is graciously lent to the numerous school drives by the Star. It boosts everything from scrap paper drives and War bond buying to sales of Easter seals and spirit pins. From front page to back, the Steinmetz Star speaks of, by, and for the people who make up the school it represents. U6 6 7 C' uerydoafy :5 cworife perm unc LUNCH ROOM The most popular places in the school, without any doubt, are the school lunch rooms. The most sought after items Cbesides chairsl are the ham- burgers, cokes and ice cream sandwiches, as ever. But the victory plate specials have taken quite a hold, attractive plates oi Well-cooked, well- balanced foods. Balanced diets are Miss Blake's specialty. Under her supervision, many of them are prepared each day, and all of them are served to the three thousand customers, more or less, with friendly smiles from her and the ladies of the lunch room in general. A fine spirit prevails. The students may nibble at knowledge, but their appetites are keen by the time moming classes are over. Besides baking hundreds of pies, simmering gallons of soups and tossing together great quantities of crisp vegetables to create salads, spreading and wrapping hundreds of sandwiches, slapping pounds of beef into hamburger patties, roasting meats and cooking vegetables, the busy lunch room employes lend a hand to the students and teachers on many special occasions. Miss Blake is gracious about arranging parties, big or small, luncheons or just cake and coke snacks. She has added to the memories of the students many a pleasant bit. She has guarded her customers from inferior foods and inflationary prices, helping them to have their fun with good food at low cost, friend that she is. LUNCH ROOM POLICE. STANDING: I. Whitney, R.

Each lunch period finds some of their number on deck, inspecting the tables and floors to see that the lunch room rules are observed. Their duties take them into the corridors, where they keep vigilance over the drinking fountains. Mr. Herrick, club sponsor, directs the Work of this group. ALCHEMSTEIN CLUB The purpose of the Alchemstein Club is to further knowledge of the practical use of chem- istry. One of the annual activities of the group is the selling of pins on "Steinmetz Day". The proceeds of this sale go into the scholarship fund. Another regular project is the making of a chemical Christmas tree for the main hall of our school. The name of the club comes from "Alchemy" and the "Stein" from Steinmetz. ASSEMBLY USHERS Large crowds need competent boys to handle them efficiently. The Assembly Ushers do this job to the queen's taste. At all the assemblies one can see these young men stand- ing at the doors of the auditorium directing the crowds of spectators in such a way that the hall is filled quickly and With minimum confusion.

When Mr Robbins left us to take over a position in the Visual Education Department of the Chicago Public Schools, sponsorship of this club was given to Mr. Frank I. Frelich. He maintains the high standards of service estab K NN Z lished, and keeps his staff busy and happy. Why do our subjects seem interesting? Why do We eagerly rush to our classes and study halls, not to mention the library for a bit of research Work? When is Shakespeare real and pleasing? That happens When we have one of those sound movies or recordings inspire us. To Whom do f"'4 We owe these stimulating additions to our classroom program? First of K all, We are indebted to the teachers who make use of these films and records, and secondly to the students and sponsor who manage the operation of the machines. Imagine yourself looking at a very interesting specimen of protoplasmic movement in the paramecium, thrilled by the new World that has suddenly come to life before your very eyes, lost in contemplation of its Wonders when suddenly the film goes black! What can be Wrong? But there is little cause to be upset. Everything is quickly under control. The boy who Was running the projector fell asleep but was awakened in time to lx save that precious film. That the services of the Visual Education Department are fully appreci ated by teachers and students of Steinmetz is shown by the number of films used. An average of twenty-five films a day are run oft by the operators. The record tells the story. 109 CLEAN-UP OFFICERS STANDING: R. Gaisor, Co-Chairman, Building Committee: D.

The name clearly expresses the chief purpose of the group sponsored by Miss Anna Utzig and Miss M. Lois Bergh. A campaign extends over a considerable period of time so this vigilance for cleanliness, salvage of vital materials and promotion of good conditions in the building, too, covers much time. It does not mean a skirmish with dirt during the "clean- up Week" alone, but a year-round battle. For convenience in handling the various types of activity, the group is divided into three committees: defense, for salvage drives and war Work: the assembly committee for plays and pro- grams: and the building committee, concerned with slogans and posters. All Work cheerfully and harmoniously to further the war effort and to keep the home front bright and clean. STANDING: M. Boeykens, R. Halvorsen, R. Gerlovitch, A. Favia. R. Biowski, E. Biowski, A.

Later sponsors have been Mrs. Young, Mrs. Zwicky and Miss Rehm, present guide. Several interesting trips have been taken to the Field Museum for the study of the geometrical cut- tings of precious stones. The main purpose of the club has always been to study different phases of mathematics that are usually overlooked in the classes. Some of these are games involving mathe- matics, the use of Geometry and Algebra for finding the height of objects, navigation, and the study of the slide rule. Any student who has had two years of mathematics is eligible for membership in this club. He will find the mental gymnastics and games stimulating and enjoyable. The officers are: Robert Pozorski, Pres.: Alfred Olson, Treas.: Shirley Stein, Sec.: and Peter Urban, Program Chairman. LIBRARY CLUB The Library Club is composed of students who assist in the library. They run a balanced club calendar, social and business matters in connection with their duties and their common interests. The main pur- pose of the group is to learn about library work as a career, to discuss new books, and to make im- provements in the library. Posters and decorations to fit the season, such as the attractive tree of books and the snow village they made last Christmas, are part of the improvement feature. Steinmetz has a library of almost ten thousand volumes, with an annual circulation of some 25,000 books. Some 450 pupils make use of the library every day, helped by the club members and Miss Nowak. As head librarian, she maintains a friendly atmosphere in the library and tries to instill good library habits in the pupils. The library is a hand- some room, decorated with its artistic hangings, kept up-to-date with new books and fresh posters. It invites visitors. STANDING: G. Antros, A. Kapsis, G. Mazukelli, G.

Miss Orpha Rompf, the sponsor, instructs club members in proper office conduct, grooming and pro- cedure in meeting visitors. Besides being a definite help in the office, these students absorb office techniques and develop good business habits and personality which will prove valuable to them in the busi- ness world. Every period, office service girls work in the main office. They also act as faculty secretaries. Members must maintain cz G average.

FIX-IT CLUB A club with a name as unusual as "Fix-lt" must have an unusual job to live up to its title. This club does. Back in 1941 a group of young people began Working with Mr. Downey, Mr. Ramsey and Miss Cushing, adjusting students' programs. Invariably the students who suffered program troubles used the phrase "fix it" when seek- ing revisions. The helpers decided that they could be of specific value to program making by forming a club. In searching about for a name, "Fix-It" seemed most appropriate. High grades, Will- ingness to be genuinely helpful and the approval of one sponsor are required for membership.

FIRE MARSH!-XLS From the very beginning Steinmetz has always had fire marshals who are alert, active, steady and dependable in character. They are always on duty to enforce order and insure safety during fire drills or in any emergency. The sixty-five members oi the present squad are given instruction in this service under the able leadership of Mr. Walter B. Herrick. Whe rung, at various times during the school day, the marshals must interpret them correctly and speedily, then proceed to their stations immediately. A definite plan is followed for the quick, safe evacuation of the building. Charts are placed on classroom bulletin boards to explain the rules. n the signals are U THINK HALL GUARDS lust as we need fire marshals to provide safe conduct during tire drills, we need hall guards to maintain order in the corridors every period of the day. "Let me see your pass, please" is a well known challenge throughout the halls of Steinmetz. Hall guards keep the traliic moving in the right direction fthe "Up" and "Down" stairways, you knowl, keep a wary eye on the stragglers and direct strangers to the main office. An important civic service is rendered to our school by these guards. They deserve the service points they receive for this work. Their mentor is genial Mr. Herrick.

THE EIR FORCE CLUB This group is not a club in the strictest sense of the word, for it is, rather, a company of young men of similar interests who have banded together solely for the promotion of these interests. They are students who have enlisted in the Army or Navy Air Forces and are awaiting their call to active service. They enter the service following the semester in which they reach their eighteenth birthday. Known to date as the Air Force Enlisted Reserve and sponsored by Mrs. Florence Young, teacher of Pre-Flight courses, the group will hereafter be called the Air Force Club. These boys are inspired by patriotic spirit and face call soon after gradua- tion. Meantime, they try to absorb all pertinent knowledge. STEIN VEREIN Newest of the clubs at Steinmetz is the Stein Verein, the class in German Two. As an out- growth of the interest shown in the collection of money for cakes for service men by the Edelweiss Verein, the older club of German students, this newly formed group handles the drive for the downtown Sewice lVlen's Center, while the Edelweiss Club is promoting the cake collections for the new Belmont-Cragin Community Service Men's Center. This is hard, worth- while work. But time remains for singing and programs at club meetings, programs which afford an opportunity for the class members to display their individual talents. Mrs. Fausel is the faculty sponsor of the club. STANDING: H. Kullmann, W. Wilson, E. Steigerwald, C. Blohm, I. Laufer, A. Tritt- hardt, E. Nagel, K. Schoneboom, B. Iahnke, R. Nolte, E. Schmider, F.

SOLEM SILVER STRE1-LK STAFF Creating an annual is an intensely interesting piece of work, far too great for a few persons to manage, calling for co-operation and initiative from many. The staff of the 1944 Silver Streak provided a splen- did group of students. They put a great deal of time and effort into the making of this book, and any one of them would surely agree that it was an experience that provided satisfaction along with its pains, superb relief after hours of struggle, a glorious sense of achievement to reward the tedious research, the minute details and the sheer physical energy that went into this task. The sponsors of the Silver Streak of 1944 extend sincere gratitude to all staff members. STANDING: E. Iuister, G. Kritlow, W. Krebs, R. Kathan. SEATED: Mrs. Fausel, H. Jacobson, G. Rojik, M. Siegel.

The staff of 1943-1944 had the privilege of publishing a tenth anniversary book for Steinmetz. They called upon the former annual photographer, Mr. Charles Ebert, for pictorial history to illustrate the data they dug out of old copies of the STAR, out of former annuals, out of Miss Polka's scrap-book of the school, from interviews with the original faculty members. Mr. Ebert supplied the staff with pictures of former class presidents and with many old negatives. Our present photographer, Mr. Roy A. Solem, devoted hours to furnishing us with our hundreds of new pictures. He also reproduced the faculty pictures of long ago and those of our gold star boys. Evelyn Fenton, the editor, graduated in Ianuary but made repeated trips back to see the job through. Another mid-year graduate, Hugh Hefner, furnished the cartoons. The cover design and book design inserts were made by Gail Kritlow. Dorothy Novak and Richard Halvor- sen gathered historical data. Eva Mae Pearson was in charge of senior captions. Eleanor Okon supervised the service men's department. Mrs. Lydia Fausel, literary sponsor, worked very hard. ML olae incere g jllaf jlzid ,MJ ume Safidhed me LEANDER W. HAGERTY SILVER STREAK STAFF Caring for the business end of the annual is by no means a small job. A sale of 1950 books requires considerable bookkeeping. Keeping within the budget. settling prices, negotiating with clubs, financing the division pictures, and finally collecting all money involved and paying the bills, needs the steady, loyal help of a group of faithful students who have the Steinmetz annual at heart. Mr. Hagerty, the engraver for our many fine annuals, was a great help to us in arranging page layouts in manners strikingly attractive, yet not too extravagant for our budget. Our new printers, the D. F. Keller Printing Company, have done a superb job, too. This beautiful book speaks for their part in the work, however. Miss Catherine A. Landrigan, the business sponsor of the Silver Streak for the past four years, has worked untiringly and with a gracious attitude toward everyone. She has scored another success. The covers of the Silver Streak of 1944 were again made by the Kingsport Press under the capable supervision of Mr. Harold F. Beckett. LEFT TO RIGHT: R. Halvorsen, H. Hefner, D. Novak, E. Fenton, V.

D1-KNTIANS The Dantians were organized in 1935 tor the purpose ot imbuing the pupils of the Italian classes with a knowledge of the culture that has come from Italy. Although predominantly educational, it does its part in contributing to the war effort. Members furnish cakes for the boys and purchase War bonds and stamps. They Write to former members of Italian classes who are in the service. Meetings are conducted in Italian, committees take charge of the programs, which consist ot talks and singing. The teacher of Italian, Mrs. Santa Taglia, is the founder and present sponsor of the group. She has built up a splendid spirit of co-operation in the club, and has instilled a real desire to learn.

FRENCH CLUB Back in 1934, when the school and the French classes were both in their infancy, some of the French students, having caught the "clubby" nature of the people whose language they were studying organized "Le Cercle Francais". Miss Irene Sechler, the French teacher, was asked to be the sponsor of the group and she has served in that capacity ever since. At first the organization consisted of one group only, but in later years the club has had a branch in each French class, each assuming its own name yet remaining a part of the original French Club, "Le Cercle Francais". The groups call themselves "Entre Nous", "La Mar- seillaise" and "La Fleur de Lis". At meetings, twice a month, French is spoken. "Soirees" at the Goodman Theater and the Y.M.C.A. afford further opportunity for the members to hear the French language. The club has bought diction- aries for boys in the service and has contributed generously to the Servicemen's Committee. p Brodersen, D. Tauber, L. Green. 7 LH FLEUR DE LIS STANDING: C. Fovos, A.

For ten years this organization has attracted students interested in delving into old Roman history and customs. Inspiring talks and educational programs liven club meetings. Posters of Roman life and events in Roman history, made by artistic members, grace Latin classrooms. Carol singing at Christmas time gives the club's songbirds an opportunity to put their Latin to music. All Latin classes enjoy Latin songbooks recently pur- chased by the club, and their record of Sothern's oration of the famous funeral speech of Mark Anthony, as well. The club's crowning glory was "The Saturnalia", with all Latin students par- ticipating. Parents of performers and other language students attended. True to Roman custom, a reception followed, but Bacchus, god of wine, would hardly know his substitute. Mrs. Hadley, sponsor, has spent much time and effort to make the club a success, 1 K uenoa ecinod U - gow! WeigA6or5 PAN-AMERICAN CLUB Established for the purpose of better understanding Latin American customs and culture, the Pan- American Club held its first meeting at Steinmetz on March 25, 1936. The sponsor of the club has been Miss Evelyn Thorsson, who has guided this group with a contagious enthusiasm all these years and still inspires the members to friendly, happy co-operation. This club is a member of the National Student Pan-American League. It received its charter in 1938 and has rated high as a part of this larger union. Attendance at the Chicago Downtown Council, a privilege enjoyed by few members of this affiliation, affords a helpful interchange of ideas. Gay parties with real Latin American enter- tainers are given by this Council. In April, 1940, a group of students represented Steinmetz at the meeting of the Student Pan-American League, Cen- tral Section, in Peoria, Illinois. Besides the conference meetings in the Loop and the convention in Peoria, members of this club have held joint meetings with Lane Technical High School's Pan-American Club. The mutual benefits of these encounters and the friendly spirit thus instilled are of inestimable value in cementing good fellowship among our students as a prelude to establishing better relations with the Latin Americans. Activities at the regular home meetings of the group include guest lectures, educational and entertaining movies and reports by pupils and teachers. Sometimes members are invited to at- tend a moving picture elsewhere. Now and then they have a party for their own pleasure. At Christmas time, especially, they indulge in social festivity, always with a Latin American flavor. Mexican customs at the holidays are studied in the most vivid and enjoyable manner, with similar celebrations. REAR, LEFT TO RIGHT: L. Scharek, D. Ray, E. Grezlik, S. Swan- strom, A. Hilton, F.

The first sponsor of a German Club, then called Lustige Schuler, was the former Miss Helen Brindl, a very energetic and friendly young woman. The club was large under her sponsorship, as it was when Mrs. Purcell succeeded her. When the present sponsor, Mrs. Lydia Fausel, took the club over in 1937, she had only to carry on well-laid plans. For a period of about two years, the club was for girls only, as indicated by the name, Freundliche Fraulein. During that period, there were many joint social meetings with the German Club of the Lane Technical High School, obviously an all boys club. About two years ago, the young ladies decided it would be friendly to include their fellow German students of the masculine persuasion in their club. Since then, the advanced German pupils, above second year, are eligible for membership. A new name was needed, and the members decided to adopt the name of a fragrant white mountain flower of Germany. The club is at present bending all its efforts to the aid of servicemen. Members send their school newspapers on the way to camps and overseas, to former German students in the service. They collect and disburse money for cake for the Service Men's Center of our community. 's Y N if mlm POLISH CLUB Long before the teaching of Polish became part of the curriculum at Steinmetz, a group of enthusiastic pupils of Polish ancestry appealed to Mr. Nalecz to sponsor a Polish Club. Always ready to lend a hand in promoting worthwhile activities, although a very busy man, Mr. Nalecz accepted the leadership and out of this grew one of the most active clubs in the school. When Miss Gorka came to teach Polish, she took over this club. Now that she has become Ensign Gorka, Miss Zabawski, her successor, sponsors the Polish Club. Everything the club does is for service. Recent activities are concentrated on the boys in the service, filling Christmas boxes, sending greeting cards and packing Easter cheer packages, to mention a few. The good will engendered through the Open House and other community projects are a tremen- dous asset to Steinmetz. 66 v awdze allarzdcl C.. lfU6Ly.'5 0I"lfUCl,I" HOW 3: P. Dziedzic, E. Zaucha, L.

The Colonels of Corn, I. Brophy and H.

The Campus Crew produced an out-of- this-world Swing Revue featuring: famous arrangements of current cat cravings . . . a slick chick, Bea Oberhuber, who sounded relatively in the pink while singing "In the Blue of Evening" . . . the Steinmetz Colonels of Corn CBrophy and Hefnerl giving "The Voice" plenty of good CPD competition and rendering Al Dexter's "Pistol Packin' Mama" utterly helpless . . . Bob Nelson, that strictly groovey individual in the zoot suit and Pepsodent smile, who M. C.'ed like an old master. The righteous boy who waves the stick at these fellas is known to his mom as Vic Mickus, but to the sharpies at Stein- metz he is the Mastery Magician of Music-sounding on the licorice stick Cclarinet to the squaresl. His repertoire Caheml ranges from jungle jive like "Golden Wedding" to rhythmic Latin sways like "Begin the Beguine". Vic is studying arrang- ing and one of his ambitions is to do arrangements for his own band. He plans a string section for the orchestra in the next Swing Session which will give Steinmetz swingsters another chance to drool in the school auditorium. These budding boys of bouncing rhythm will bless Steinmetz for two more semesters as the hub of entertainment. All the young men in the band are clever instrumentalists who really enjoy their work and love a jam session at which they can swing out or a big show where they can bring the music home sweet and swingy. After getting the business of winning a war out of the way the boys will pursue the development of their musical abilities in a whirling rhythmic world. All who hear them are sure that their efficiency and knowledge of Swing, Boogie-Woogie, live and the Blues-all modern American trends in music-will eventually bring them to the heights of success. ome urrenf .jwlalolaeningd on ara e Only a few of this year's events could be pictured here, so these are representative rather than complete. Across the top are peppy cheerleaders in action and symphony soloists in repose. The Christmas trees are a library tree hung with miniature books and the tree in the foyer, its 4B committee still decorating it. Across the center we see Ianuary's "Class Notables"g some students intent on their schoolwork: and a serious looking group conducting a round table discussion. At the bottom of the page we see waste paper baled, a war activity: a stairway scene: students learning to talk about the weather scientifically: and two of the men who keep Steinmetz clean. f ir. 1.7,-.l..-F li.m., 1ffM,,WWff X- WF 1 h vi. fii1C'fT?5'7'F' , 'I SWT-?!F' 17, 1..

As readily seen in these pictures, the members of the Steinmetz Girls' Athletic Association have a variety of sports from which to choose. Some of the members show great aptitude in apparatus work, some are skillful at ping pong, bowling or volley ball: others like the water sports. There is ample opportunity for all the members to find their favorite activity on the G.A.A. calendar. Since dues are only ten cents a semester, the girls really can afford to belong to this club and take advantage of the games and parties provided. Every semester the G.A.A. gives three big parties, one for the Senior-Iunior members, a second party for the Sophomore group and the third one for the Freshmen. These parties are lively, unforgettable affairs, with enter- tainment and refreshments provided. They are always well-attended parties, as the girls who have never been at one quickly hear about what they miss by staying away from a G.A.A. party. The girls attend in large num- bers, and the fun is there in abundance, too. Refreshments are always enjoyed by them, too, these visitors of the sponsor and the board. Mrs. Florence Soderberg is the sponsor of the G.A.A. and has a board of girls assisting her to run this huge organization. The G.A.A. sponsors all athletic activities of the girls at Steinmetz. At the end of each semester there is an award assembly for girls receiving chevrons, letters, numerals or bars. Members can win bars on special swim days, apparatus days and for various special activities. Bowling is pro- vided every week and has an enthusiastic following. Hik- ing, riding and other outdoor sports come under the gov- ernment of the G.A.A. Board as well as the indoor games and exercises. The girls have a wide choice. The water pageants are well known by visitors to our school, because the girls who participate in the pageant have been gracious about putting on water carnivals for visitors at various times. Good sportsmanship is the main idea promoted by the G.A.A. SA. 51l..7 .7 51.46.

Seven days later history was made as Steinmetz captured its first West Sec- tion Title, defeating Austin l3-O. The me with Calumet re- sulted in an upset as the Flashes won 12-7. In the Phillips game, the hard- est fought of the year, the team did not concede the victory until the very end, when the scoreboard read: Steinmetz-6, Phillips-12.

They had a thrilling season spurred on by cheers from the stands. A 0 mn Sudmerge eil' laloonenfd Captain Dick Lortie and his men made a good showing this year, with thirteen wins and only five losses. Stars who specialized in crawl are Dick Lortie, Iohn Sereda, Ed Fiester, Iack Iohanson, and Allen Anderson. Breast stroke artists were Tim Toomey, Earl Bold, Boland Christensen, and Frank Brown. Bob Beecroft was the best back stroke swimmer on the current squad. The four man relay team that scored an abundance of points for Steinmetz consisted of Lortie, Sereda, Fiester and Iohanson. ln the medley we had Bold, Beecroft and Lortie, The Steinmetz mermen entered the state high school championship contest but lost. Our team twice won meets against Amundsen. This is the only time that Amundsen has been defeated. This gives a good idea of the power of this year's team. Steinmetz has had a good record in swimming since its beginning. The coach of the team is Mr. Myles F. Havlicek, successful and well-liked by his boys. Every season of swimming ends in a glorious party at the home of the coach. The team members indulge in games of all sorts and indulge in quan- tities of refreshments after they have worked up an appetite at the ping pong table or with miniature horseshoe pitching. This happy occasion cements friendships that had their beginning in the swimming pool. SWIMMING TEAM. ON BOARD: H. Letrich, T. Toomey, E. Fiester, C. Bochnik, R. Christensen. ROW 4: M. Hendry, G.

The school had no instruments so they had to be borrowed from the local Legion Post and from individuals in the neighbor- hood. As has been shown on many occasions since, the Le- gion Post is a friend of ours. The Drum and Bugle Corps was in operation until 1938, when it was supplanted by the R.O.T.C. Band under the direction of Capt. Dowse. After the departure of the first R. O. T. C. instructor, several changes occurred in leadership. Since 1943, Corporal Charles Duckworth is in charge. COLOR DETAIL: LEFT TO RIGHT: L. Preiss, Sgt.: K. Fletcher, 2nd Lt.: L. Wysocki, Sgt.: C. McLean, Sgt.: R. Grossklas, Corp. R.O.'I'.C. The Pt.O.T.C. unit was organized in September, 1935, under the supervision of Sgt. Carl Christophersen. The Steinmetz unit started with a hundred and fifty cadets. Uni- forms, rifles and ammunition were furnished by the government. In addition to the military training, a Drum and Bugle Corps was begun in 1935. 4 ere id flze mgimenfaf Gomman R.O.T.C. ln 1941 Sergeant Christophersen left Steinmetz High School. He was assigned to the reception center at Fort Sheridan, receiving a commission as First Lieutenant. He served for several months in actual combat duty overseas. He has since been commissioned as a Captain and is at present stationed at Denver, Colorado, as a commander of an Army Specialized Training Program. After Sergeant Christophersen left Steinmetz, the R.O.T.C. unit received a new military instructor, Sergeant Burkhart. But he remained at Stein- metz only a few weeks before going to Officers Candidate School. He was replaced by Sergeant Albert Walker, who came shortly before the annual federal inspection and, after seeing the unit through that event, left the following semester. Sergeant H. C. Brunson was our next military instructor. During his stay the unit had a Military Ball. Before the semester ended, We learned that he, too, was to be transferred to active service. In 1943 Corporal Charles Duckworth took over the command of the Pt.O.T.C. unit at Steinmetz. We hope that he will remain for a long time. The Commander in Chief of Steinmetz is Mr. O'Hearn, who is very helpful and cooperative. We regret sincerely that this is his last semester to serve in that capacity. REGIMENTHL STAFF. REAR: C.

PHOTOGRAPHIC F UGITIV ES DORIS VESELEY RICHARD WOHLER .748 prom . .All gjlleflf fo mlflflelflfl QI' The grand march is a thrilling climax to the most glamourous of occasions, prom night. Tonight is theirs to enjoy and cherish! The girls are feminine perfection from head to toe. Their hair is soft and lustrous, bedecked with jeweled clips or flowers: their shoes are fragile, high-heeled. Their dresses are the acme of femininity, soft pastels to sophisticated blacks, flaring net skirts, sweetheart bodices, quaint cap sleeves, peplums of gleaming satin, draped cloth of gold, an array to remember. Every girl is a queen tonight: every young man is a knight in his tux, his hair well-behaved, his shoes new for the occasion, too. Tomorrow the girls will roll up those sweater sleeves, wear their anklets and loafers, their babushkas and other everyday clothes. Tomorrow the boys will forget to wear ties and fall into their casual ways. But tonight is set apart: may these scenes keep the memory fresh in their minds! 154 IUNE CLASS OFFICERS G.
