We all have definite ideas as how we can best benefit ourselves and the universe and so - to give. you an idealof how anxious we are to prove to you that we are REAL T. F. r's with that certain "umph," every graduating senior has been personally interviewed and surprisingly enough, we find that our plans and ideas fall into six different sections. So - with these personal interviews as a fair warning - watch out for the class of 1939!!! You'll be hearing about us!!! Here are the answers of the first group to the question, "What does the future hold for you?" More school? Jobs? We just can't decide. The fields are so varied and so interesting, that we're having one heck of a time trying to make up our minds. We might try combining school with work. That's always pretty good. Then there is the possibility of something wonderful and unexpected happening so - until graduation, we're patiently waiting and anticipating the future.

Ill We juniors are proud of ourselves. We've been here three years and have made names for our- selves in every activity that the school has offered. Now that the seniors are leaving it will be our task to step in and take over the controlling reins of the school and we feel that we can do it. We're not bragging, but looking over our class, you can see next year's leaders of the school. The class of '39 will leave gaps, but we feel that we are just the ones to fill these gaps. The position of football captain vacated by Joe, will be ably taken over by Edward Stokes, while Eugene Schultz will have Futa's job of leading the basketball team. Bill Dagley's assum- ing the role of swimming captain left vacant by Pete, also shows that the juniors are ready, willing, and able to fill the places left by the graduating seniors. With Dick Dermody, Eugene Coyle, Elmer Szczepinski, and Walter O'Hara to fill out the heavyweight football and basketball teams and Eugene Ollrich, Andy Petriska, Hubert Zelesky, Don Archer, Charles Doe, and Leader Thaldorf to fall in line in the light's basketball lineup, we feel that we will be able to add a few more cups to the trophy room. Our swimming team will still splash its way to success with Eugene Kowalski, Bob Bogart, and Don Stein filling in the gaps left by the graduating members. We oughtn't forget Clyde Lawrence, Eddie March, and Leonard Schab of the wrestling team who will be here next year. G.A.C. won't suffer for lack of athletes with Loretta Kohler, Corinne Mickey, Violet Ziem- kowski, Mary Zaworski, Lily Kmatz, and Muriel Anderson, who have already shown their athletic prowess in all of the sports. The reins of publications will fall into good hands if any of these juniors take over. Anita Bohling, Katherine Sarros, Virginia Lewandowski, C293 Margaret Schwartz, Hazel Hishon, and Eugere Doe have already shown their ability in writing for the THORNTONlAN. And the CHRONO- SCOPE workers, Ruth Katz, Annette Arkin, Reisha Kraus, Bernace Jacques, and Mabel Keller, have also shown the ability that the seniors have. Our debate team will lose Lucille Abrahamson, Pat McKenna, and jean Smith, but look at these juniors, Eugere Doe, Ruth Katz, Arnold Zimmer, Mary Gaither, Don Murrin, Helene Browne, Reisha Kraus, Ellsworth Sherrow, and John Lair, who are ready to mount the platform in their places. We hate to see the seniors leave their places in the band, but we are sure that Bill Dagley, Bud Thompson, Ellsworth Sherrow, Leonard Ferguson, Norman Schultz, Arnold Zimmer, and Mary Boring will see that it still keeps up its reputation already gained. The orchestra still has Eleanor Hagerman, Hazel Hishon, Henry Grych, Genevieve Pryor, and William Klemm to take the places left by the seniors. Our newly organized dramatic club shows promise of being one of the most popular and important clubs of next year. Look what the junior class has contributed to it in the way of talent: Mary Gaither, Ruth Katz, Eugere Doe, Tony Pactwa, Corinne Mickey, Edgar Cusick, and Emilie Dutczak. Now you too can see why we juniors are proud of ourselves and are confident of the fact that we will be able to iill the gaps left by the class of '39. And since we will be the prominent persons next year, we think you others ought to know a little more about us, so we are going to tell you our nicknames, our favorite subject, and the activities where you will more than likely find us next year.

Look! and Read what the sophomores think about their class this year They have submitted to us the following letter which they asked us to publish .... FELLONV STUDENTS: We feel that our class has been unjustly treated. We know as well as the rest of you students, but you won't admit it, that we are by far the best class in the school. We have done everything in our power to prove that and we feel we have done it successfully. We have made excellent contributions to all of the school activities, but we can only mention a few now. Who was Dora the pretty dairy maid Ill the Carifval? None other than Betty Gerald, a sophomore. Does any other class have cheer leaders who try to arouse our school spirit at football and basketball games any more than Kitty Kiester and Katherine Bertram? Are there any finer Girls' Club Board members than Ieanne O'Conner, Gloria Poppen, Katherine Bertram and Kitty Kiexter? We are sure you agree with us in this statement. What about the sophomore G.A.C. members who do remarkably well in all the girls' sports? Isn't it the sophomores, like Florence Friduss, Mary Trebellas, M 'ldred Laminerfng and others who are going to talze the places of the outgoing seniors and juniors in the bus'ness sta-H of the THORNTONIAN in a very short time? By the way, don'i you for one minute think that the girls are doing all the work. The boys, too, have done a great deal towards making our school a champion of schools. foe Reed, Wilbur Coles, Bernard Nondorf, William Bell, Edward Iablonski, Donald Koehn, Steve Sertic, and others made wonderful showings in football and will, no doubt, prove themselrfes worthwhile next year. Ioe Hill, Richard Nordaker, Edward Litzan in basketball, and Albert Sebach. and Iimmy Anderson in swimming have proved themselves very capable. Wilbur Coles anal Steve Sertic are faithful members of the Boys' Club Board, which could hardly get along without them.

Wfhy tlon't you know? lt's to secure a Girls' Club pin - you know' those cute little T. F. pins that many girls are flashing around school. Of course, it isn't just the pins we work for. That beautiful loving cup awarded to the outstanding' Girls' Club worker is something that every girl would like to own. It's fun too to participate in different social events sponsored by this organization. 'The gyna converted into a super-aHey . . . garbage cans .. . rubber nnce . .. broken bottles and old shoes . . . and clothes lines . . . zipped up the atmosphere of the Girls, Club Slumming Dance. They're off!!! To find an artificial linger nail . . . a marriage license . . . Mr. Blank's autograph . . . a piece of charcoal. The Scavenger hunters had a swell time hunting for all these doo-dads. Something new . . . something different . . . the Big and Little Sister scheme clicked with the girls. It was fun to hear the little green freshmen ask dumb questions which the "know-it-all" upperclass girls so wisely answered. Other outstanding events sponsored by the Girls' Club are the Girls' Alumni Party, the Roller Skating Party, and the memorable Mother and Daughter affair. Each year members of the Girls' Club are sent to the annual Girls' Club Conference. The conference took place in East Aurora on April 15 this year. The lucky girls who attended this affair were: Josephine Schuster, Emilie Dutezak, .Ieanne Shahan, June Jaeger, Gloria Mundo. Lucille Norton. Margaret Schwartz, Anita Bohling, Eileen Moll, Elvera Frank, Virginia Taitz, Betty Kuhlman, Kay Sarros, Jane Bledsoe, and Esther Turner.

BOYS' CLUB STAGES TOP NOTCH EVENTS The scene above looks quite calm, but don't let that fool you. xXVe boys really have some stormy meetings. -Ioe Siwinski looks like a second Hitler when he pounds his fist wildly and shouts madly, "Shut up, you guys, or l'll bil? yuh!" Mr. Miller looks on calmy as the boys informally discuss the business of the day. The fellows hold' their gatherings in room 108, and they hold meetings whenever they think it's necessary to have a get-together. This club has held many of the top-notcher events of the year. Spills . . . thrills . . . giggling . . . .md groans of pain were heard at the riotious annual Roller Skating Party. Everybody was in a friendly and gay spirit, and the kids seemed to enjoy themselves. Ping pong . . . wrestling .... 1 nd boxing bouts were witnessed by the dads and sons at the Father and Son party on March 14. The main attraction was the exciting experiences of hunting wild animals as told by Mr. Albrecht of the Field Museum. The board members stuffed ice-cream and hot dogs and pop in their faces until they couldn't eat any more. A maze of colorful balloons . . . pretty femmes arrayed in spring Hnery . . . good-looking fellows dressed in Sunday best . . . brightened up the scene of the swanky Boys' Balloon Dance. Smooth-looking couples swayed gracefully to the strains of Ossic Thrane's melodious music. Eyes are focused on Edward Stokes, Wilbur Coles, and Ralph Voss for their out- standing work in furthering the interests of the Boys' Club. The officers of this organiLation are: -Ioe Siwinski.

J A xv SCRIBBLE, TYPE, CHECK, PASTE, SELL The THORNTONIAN box is open and Virginia lewandowski, Hazel Hishon, Kathcryn Sarros, Jane Bledsoe, and Illvera Frank, laugh when they discover that some people are still finding out "that a certain freshie is gone on Bud Huck." Lucille Abrahamson, and Beverly Millies are holding ice packs on their pounding heads after listening to Joe Siwinski and Louise Hays wrangle over the lineage award and figuring out what's to be cut out. Thereis never enough space for all they would like to write. Miss Moe inspects the work of two of her crack typists lrene Taborski and Dolores Knoezer. THORNTONIANS are here! And the delivery is in the hands of Bob Crane, Alice Sonnenberg, Mary Trebellas, Beverly Millies, Hazel Hishon, Leona Szal, Iflvera Frank, Josephine Schuster, Rt-Esha Kraus, and Joe Siwinski. "Cremo,' cigar boxes, paste, chewed pencils, worn-down erascrs, and elbow grease are all used by reporters Irma Winterhoff, Corinne Mickey, limilie Dutczzik. The business staff, or those who have to get the necessary shekels, are Florence Friduss, Mildred Lammering, Ruth Horst, Sophie Sarros, Mildred Hecht. Mary Trebellas, Marjorie Preble, Ada Reich, James Brady, Jeanne Sibley, and Helene B row ne. Out goes Miss Moe . . . and up go Dermody's feet on the desk as Fugere Doe, Mary Margaret Keller, and Loretta Kohlertake a few minutes out to look over the last editioag m V, ' if The circulation part of this year's CHRONO- SCOPE was in the hands of Bob Crane, James Anderson, Leo Serafini, Nelda Berger, Mary TreA bellas, Joan Clark, Dolores Palko, Rita Strand, Josephine Schuster, Lillian Horst, Reisha Kraus, Audrey Smith, and Jeanne O,Conner. The senior editorial staff has a big job and Alice Sonnenberg, Mildred Cohen. June Jaeger, Virginia Taitz, Gloria Mundo, Lorraine Malak, and Victoria Madrzyk continued working when Mr. Uhle called for his group. If you happen to peak into room 202 any eve- ning about 5:30, you will still be able to see Miss Moe and James Ufheil figuring out fancy shapes for the pictures. Joe Siwinski and Dick Dermody have a mighty big job since they have to write the whole sports section of the CHRONUSCOPE. The iunior editorial staff or Bernice Jacques, Reisha Kraus, Annette Arkin, and Mabel Keller, spend most of their time finding out what name goes with what face. Those "ads" which are s0 necessary to the success of any year book were secured by James Citta, Lillian Horst, Sophie Sarros, James Brady, and Dolores Knoezer. Miss Jaacks pauses a minute to pose with her veteran salesmen Frank Serafinkfbusiness managerj Ada Reich, Mariorie Preble, and Mildred Hecht. Wliy this feverish scribbling? XVhy there flying fingers of the typists? Why' these persistent sales- men? Wlayf this efiicient delivery? All these whys can be answered by two words "News Hawks." abou v X 0" "il TH EY KNOW ALL "lf war breaks out, what will happen to our case?" "Can't economic sanctions be thrown out?" "XVh.1t do you think of Quincy Howe as an authority?" "Whg1t are we going to answer to cash and carry?" "Must it be a military alliance?' Mr. Allen, who deals with these debate twisters, unknots all the kinks that bewilder his prodigies. He can take an argument apart and find out what makes it tick. He can detect in a second any fallacy or inconsistency. He knows what it takes to smash 'em, and he practices what he knows. The tournament team . . . or those who are supposed to know all the answers . . . is made up of Lucille Abrahamson, Ifugere Dae, Arnold Zimmer, Ruth Kati, Reisha Kraus. and Ellsworth Sherrow. The varsity which has helped represent T. lf. in many large conference debates is upheld by Hlelene Brown, Ruth Bock. Don Murrin, Mary Gaither, Patricia McKenna, Betty Sibley, Louise Hays, Jeanne Lauerman, and .lean Smith. U43 THE ANSWERS Mr. Blanke has the job of dealing with those underclassmen debaters who have dreams of some day being on the tournament team. These are: Kenyon Twedell, W'ilfred Kraegel, jack Gibbons, Edgar Thedens, Betty Ann Rappe, Joan Clark. Gladys l,eedy, Hazel Hishon, Lleanne Sibley, and .Iohn Lair. This season approximately 250 debates were held with 50 T. F. debaters participating. In the Chicago Conference debates Thornton Fractional won ten and lost only four. Hammond High, the holders of the Indiana Forensic state championship. were defeated by the Fractional's aflirmative team in four of the five debates held. This record will long be remembered in debate history. And then finally in the metropolitan. XVh0 knows? Perhaps Mr. Allen and Mr. Blanke already have material for making a team which will some day be state champs. NM' i A . -"Rm,-:wif X R V , . W - X ff!-f""i3i .. .. QQ? fi-..

The 'crowd roared anlrl almost rolled in the aisles! Girls! Those fellows don't do us justice. Their imitations were too realistic, and we'd have to go some to dance so gracefully. They really looked dueky in their unique outfits. The "Melodecrs" really could swing out and set pulses throbbirf. That smiling senior, John Vander Aa and that sweet little freshman, Delores Palko, were crowned king and queen of the Carnival by Mr. john Huck, President of the School Board, on the stroke of 12:00. W'hen Mr. Mcphail came out on the stage to receive his gift from the east, he looked so ambi- tious with his shirt sleeves rolled up and sweat on his brow. After all didn't he have to see that the kids got on the stage in time for their acts? Didn,t modest Mr. Christian look surprised when he came on the stage for his present? He shouldn't have, though, because he deserved it for working so hard in directing the music. Miss Shemaitis looked as though she had more fun putting on the show than the members of the cast as she smilingly accepted her well-earned gift. The Carnival has different meanings to different students. Some recall funny incidents . . . others think of it as the greatest social event of the school year. Of course, there are always a few pessimists who consider it a headache, but all in all, we think it's a grand event.

CLASS PLAYS WITH PLENTY OF CLASS lt war "Happy Days" in more ways than one for the cast of the junior class play, for they had a good many happy days in their attempts to depict the glamour of the theatre on March 24. A metamorphasis was performed by director Stauffer who was assisted by the junior adviser Mr. Leonard. Adam Wfandrowski, who is naturally a quiet fellow, was turned into a bold, aggressive go- getter. The bored sophistieate was done easily by a girl who knows how it's done, Elizabeth Stevenson. liun loving, peppy, athletic, Corinne Mickey was transformed into the sedate, prim, bossy, old maid. Paul Patterson's part called for a good many blushes, and of course Sid Fby was the only one CAST OF SVNIOR CLASS I I IAS "M than could fill the bill. "Hi-Oh! the derry oh! the farmer takes a wife." And so he did in "Happy Days" as Norman Schultz's search ended with Corinne Mickey. Outdoor girl Leona Rogalski changed her gym suit for a maid's uniform so she could help com- plicate thc plot. Betty Kuhlman, who in real life, slaps you on the back and hollers, "Hey, kid!" became the aristocratic social leader of the set. Edgar Cusick, who has never been known as a Nlaclies' man," stepped into the part and made feminine hearts flutter. Emilie Dutczak, the obiect of his affections, in actual life is sweet and retiring. but that evening Fmilie became so boisterous and mischievous she upset the earcful social planning done by Annette Arkin.

NVateh out, or some candid camera fiend is liable to snap your picture in .1 rather unusual pose, and one that you wouldn't even want to show to your best friends. Sidney liby, our president, is, in our opinion, a perfect specimen of what .1 photog- rapher should be. XVhy? Because he has been learning photography from Mr. Uhle, our Lhronoscope photographer. XVe have a contest too. The teachers of the school are the judges and the reward is one green hill, namely one dollar. Wfe are being taught all the fundamentals of photography, and maybe someday, we'll he opening a studio of our own. "l'rrr-Prrrl Do you hear the drone of motors?"

C617 Mwst XE! x EWR STOOGE IS JUST ANOTHER NAME FOR THEM There seems to be a feud between the fifth period poster makers and the sixth period ones. They always fight over who's supposed to wash the type and what work is to be done by whom. These kids leave one another sarcastic notes that really don't spare a person's feelings. They like the work because they get out of study hall, but seriously speaking, they think this work will prove of value in later life. In the picture, Richard Czechanski is setting the type while Richard Greene is taking a newly printed poster off the press. Ed Brozel is listening to Miss Moe tell him that an apostrophe has been omitted. Unfortu- nately Richard Babbitt and Vincent Mack were absent the day the picture was taken. Phew! That smell of sulphur nearly knocks you out. A whiff of ammonium is something to make a funny face about too! Those tongue-twisters, potassium dichromate, potassium permanganate, and manganese dioxide are high-falutin' words that keep us in a dither. Many evenings are spent in the chemistry lab by Richard Oderwald, June Jaeger, Jeanne Lauerman, Jean Smith, Doris Gcnko, Mildred Cohen, Dorothy Deakun, Don Murrin, Herman Koselke, Gene Ollrich, and Gene Haehnel. Just a mess! We do all the pickin' up of dishes and selling ice cream, candy, and food to you ungrateful kids. You don't realize how tired we C633 get washing dishes and waiting until Jane decides if she will buy a Babe Ruth bar or a Hershey. Say you kids should talk! How do you think we feel when some waitress comes by and sticks her finger in our glass just so we can't drink the water. Or do you suppose we enjoy being pestcred to hurry up and pass down our dishes before we get done eating? We hash-slingers are: Margaret Ernst, Estelle Prizner, Ruth Jaeger, Marjorie Rasmussen, Phyllis De Line, Dorothy Carey, Norma Trinowski, Wilma Ooms, Louise O'Connor. Jean Olson is not in the picture. We assistant librarians think we're pretty good stooges. The other kids don't appreciate our work. They think we have to come to them for overdue books and such, but we put our foot down and don't take any sass from anyone.

XVhat're you going to do? Gee, I wish I had a hot dog . . . until I got into the band I always got a couple between halves of football games . . . What! Don't rell me that dope is out of step again! Wait till the sergeant sees him . . . Some plain and fancy French is going to be flying around here." Yes, kidlets, its all in a night's maneuvers . . . perhaps even more . . . there are more agonies of a band member than one might imagine. F'r instance: XWouldn't you think it pretty hard to live up to those swell uniforms we have now? In trying to do full justice to them, one walks so straight and pompous that the unaccusomed back bone gives a spiteful twinge every now and then. And again f'r instance: s'posing you were the one that was out of step, and didn't know quite why the whole line is glaring at you sidewise from their music, and then, while you are busy discovering your mistake to keep playing, and by chance hit a wrong note at a rest mark! Oull 'tis hectic! Then too, on concert nights, that heretofore seemingly simple little eight measure solo looms large. As one sits counting the sixteen measures preceeding it, one's hands begin to perspire, and one's heart becomes displaced . . . beating, beating, beating, faster than the snare drums right in one's throat, thoughts like, "I hope I don't die from the pressure when I try to blow" and, "Oh why did I ever take up this blooming thing anyway?', occur to one along with, "Gee, if only dad wasn't here, too!" Only two more cut time measures remain to be counted out . . . and then - dead silence. Somehow a melody, familiar, but strained is coming from some place near you: why! You're playing the thing . . . No, mustnlt get out of breath yet . . . still three notes to go . . . ah! It's over . . . somehow the rest of the kids look relieved too. D0 you wonder why?! . . . Collar doesn't seem as tight as before, no heat seems to be radiating in this direction anymore and the world seems very, very pleasant indeed for the rest of the evening. 5555 Direrior I Q QQQ Q -as S' , - , ' lf gQ.,Q Q g?a.a.,,1 is 25 g ? .gg Q Q: Q 1 is i ' t : Q 4 9 Qs Q f wQ .1w ., W . , K J 5 if 5 jg fl L,f, VEii,L Epi? af nib Qi ' 3 ,E m,,.,. 29 . ,si 0, 4?

Miss Helen Brazzill, our Glee Club director, and Miss Katherine Brazzill, the accompanist, are surely swell persons, for we have found in them a pair of swell pals. Well, we had to take a voice test and when we talk about jitters, it would make a jitter bug look like small fry. But wait . . . five hundred points is our goal . . . for what? Why haven't you heard? It's what we have to work for to get a Girls Chorus pin and is it a beauty, but confidentially it is a darb and a peach. It's shaped like a note which symbolizes our member- ship in the Glee Club. Our social activities include the annual T. F. Carnival, the Christmas Concert, and the Mother-Daughter Party. But this year we sang for the W L S Amateur Show and the Teachers Convention at our school, boy, we're getting up in the world little by little. The officers of our club are: Audrey Smith, president, Virginia Taitz, secretary, Katherine Sarros, treasurer, and Dora Harthun, librarian. DOUBLE SEXTET The Girls' Chorus members certainly envy the Double Sextet because these girls were specially hand-picked by Mr. McPhail, director. This club was organized for the purpose of having some kind of musical organization smaller than the Girls' Chorus and the Meistersingers which could at a moment's notice be used for any kind of an assembly that might come up suddenly out of the clear blue sky. Don't think that belonging to this organization is just mere play . . . it isn't . . . it's hard work, for we have to spend a lot of time on tone drill and that sort of thing. Wfe work intensively and don't play around, boy and we mean it. Most of the music we sing is standard choral literature suitable for small groups. We sang for the Christmas program at the Calumet City Woman's Club the Christmas Assembly and at the T. F. Carnival. MEISTERSINGERS "With A Smile And A Song" is our motto. When the students listen to their voices blending, it just thrills them to pieces to know that we have such wonderful male singers in our school. We think we're pretty good, well we should, because many people have told us so, so there. We also are awarded pins, but some of us clon't keep them long, because when our best girl friend spots it, it is no longer in our possession. Do you get it? We sang for various assemblies, the Carnival, the Christmas Concert, and the XV L S Amateur Show. Boy, are we good, how about it? But the honors for our being so good go to Mr. Christian, the best pal a boy could ever have. If the students and teachers appreciate us, we feel that our existence has been justified. 6673 SCHOOL ORCHESTRA Run' I: Henry Gryeh, Mary Ann Hasiqik, Orlelta Gindl, Conn Lalnggin, Viviun Renicker, l'I1llCl Hishun.

Orchestra which will make your heart go' a pitter and a patter when they set forth their lilting and gorgeous melodies. NVhat? You haven't heard much about the orchestra, well we will coll you something about it in our inimitable way, and that really is going some. XVell, to start off with something, we play for school plays, graduation, assemblies, and for various civic affairs whenever we are called upon. NVe really enjoy playing for these things. Why? Well, because we like to and thatis reason enough, don't you think so? WT d0n't have uniforms like the band has, but even though we don't have uniforms, we are as glad to be in the organization because we do have a very fine grade of music, sweet and soft or what have you. But our success goes to Mr. Christian, our director, and is he a swell guy. Some of us hope to play in big orchestras some-- day, we hope, we hope. Well, we're getting a lot of experience by playing in the school orchestra and this eventually will help us a great deal in the future. ln our opinion, we think, the crowd enjoys our playing because they really do clap for us and how. Now we are signing off with happy hearts that will linger awhile in your memory until you hear from us again and soon.

CADET BAND We are the young kidlets that are trying our best to advance into the big band, but heaven knows when we'll get such a surprise. But some of the kids have been lucky enough to advance into the big band and that is what we call luck. We'll be mighty proud of ourselves when we strut down the street in the uniforms that are given to a member of the big band, there mighty purty, aren't they? We Hnd that playing in the cadet organization gives us a lot of practice and experience in en- semble playing and after all, that's the real reason for the cadet organization. But confidentially. we want to get out as soon as we can because we want to get out into the advanced orchestra. Mr. Mcllhail, our director, deserves a lor of honor, because he is our teacher and he teaches us all the fundamentals of music. He hopes that in the future we will be as good band players as they have now. We'll reach the top of the ladder soon enough to show you we can play equally as good. XVe,re not at all praising ourselves but we're telling you some facts that will come true in clue time. CADET ORCHESTRA Weire just a little orchestra with just one ambition in our minds and that is the advance- n'ent into the big orchestra. You really have to be good though but some of us are lucky that it takes only six weeks to advance forward. Some of the members are rather pokey because it takes them four semester to advance.

MANY WINS AND FEVV LOSSES "Shucks, I do'n't see why we can't have another South Suburban Championshipn said Captain Joe Pawlowski, on September 17, of 1938 just as he got a towel to wipe himself after the first game, "Wl1y look, we beat this Elmhurst bunch by a 7-6 score and we only had thirteen days of practice." Wfell, we didnit do so well nest week on September 2-I because the Evanston eleven, who-ni we beat by a 13-7 score last year, were certainly determined to give us the low end of the score. They did, too, they came and beat us 7-0. "NVe've got to win the next one on September 30" Coach Petree tells his boys. "This is our first league encounter, so letls win." Sure enough, Kankakee lost to us, having only 7 points to our 13. Of course it was no runaway but those two passes Coyle made really gave us victory. Dermody and Pawlowski were the two men who received the passes for the touch- downs. Boy! was Paschke burnt upg misfortune fell on him again and ended his football career with a broken collar-bone. Witli one league game sacked away, wc fought madly against Blue Island to win Z0-0, on October 8. "Yeah, Rah, Lacznyv could be heard from the crowd as George kept running over the point getting line. Then came the great test. Could we beat Harvey on October 1-I and probably win our fifth Championship, or would we lose and let Harvey be champs? The later question was the answer, for one big point gave Harvey the championshipg the Iinal score was 8-7. The Tech Tigers, who were the underdogs of the N.I.H.S, league, thought they could win easily over an Illinois team. but were foiled when our boys gave it to them on the chin. 14-0. f70I Slumlillg: Ted Kiluim. lfarl Mueller, Mike Zarowny, Ted Stuklosa, Ray Harder, Romm L til simrtx SILIFUVK W1 IL Bell.

BUT STILL NO CHAMPIONSHIP XVith their insides hurting from the 8-7 defeat they were given by Harvey, the grid-men were gonna show that they still had fight in them and would beat Chicago Heights on October 23, the last league tussle. They did too with 14-7 as their final score. The Argo eleven, who came here on November 4, really bottled the Meteors up with a 7-7 tie. This gave our boys their only tie of the season. This game which was postponed twice saw the band march for their first time on a football field in full uniform. Boy, did that crowd go wild! "Zip, zip, zip," was all that could be heard when we played Roosevelt on November 10. This zipping was caused by Marulis who simply passed and passed the ball and finally completed a dandy pass in the last 30 seconds of play which gave the Ruff-Riders a 7-2 victory. This pass was the 26th one of the afternoon. Again the band strutted their stuff, by starting out in two lines from both corners of he field and crossing each other's paths after coming to the center of the field. A big circle climaxed the formation, with the drums in the center while the Drum Majors twirled their heads off. As coach Petree would say, "XVe can't win all the time, but the championship would have to go to our dearest enemy, Harvey. However, a loss once in a while is what makes good teams." Wlieia coach Petree blows his whistle for the first practice next fall he will find that the following boys will not be wearing suits be- cause of graduation. 1713 I Q Captain JOE PAWLOWSKI, who served as right end for the Meteors and one of the best in the region. For his excellent playing Joe was awarded a position on the Calumet Region Football team. The combination team work of Coyle to Pawlowski on passes scored many a touchdown for Joe and his boys. BOB VAN LANNINGHAM, who with the power of a Diesel, was the man who charged through that. line like a knife through hor butter. Even if Van didn': get many touchdowns he certainly gained many first downs for the boys. GEORGE LACZNY, a speedy half-back will be sorely missed. If you opened a hole for George, he certainly was good for yardage. Many touchdowns were scored by George also. PETER CHAPELLE, who Worked at the other half-back post, was an excellent worker with the team and will be ever known for those extra points after touchdowns with his educated toe. JOHN VANDER AA and DICK I-IYBIAK, the latter a product of Catholic Central were two excellent tackles. It was these men that opened holes for the backfield to hot-foot it toward a touchdown. RAY PASCHKE, who no doubt would have earned a regular posi- tion on the squad, ended his career in a game against Kankakee with a broken collar-bone. EDDIE WOJCIECHOWSKI, who came in the game after the season was in swing, had real fighting spirit and aggressiveness. RAY HARDER, a guard, is the last senior who will miss the team as well as the team missing him. They say every team needs a manager and DICK ODERWALD answered to the question of "Who could handle the job?" Boys who will return next year and will be very important in the line and backfield are: Captain-elect ED STOKES, a man who is responsible for balancing the whole line, will be expected to serve as a very good captain because of his scholastic standing and likeness among the boys. ELMER SZCZEPINSKI, better known as iron man who stands around 5' 4" but all solid will play on Ed's right hand side. EUGENE COYLE who was responsible for many touchdowns with his passes this year will be back next year to heave more of those scoring passes as well as boot the ball around. DICK DERMODY, the tall lanky man who played at the end position will try to replace Joe Pawlowski with those touchdown. passes. BEN NONDORF has the real Nondorf blood. He follows his brother Tom's foot-steps and makes an excellent guard. JOE REED, a sophomore, with a year of experience behind him, should be a very valuable man next year. TED GLEIM, comes under the line of big-fast boys. Ted can beat any man running in his weight. STEVE SERTIC, who took to the bench because of a shoulder injury, will be back with a lot of punch as a full back. Reserves who will come back next year are: Mike Zarowny, Hubert Zelesky, Wilbur Coles, John Padjen, Earl Mueller, Archie Ross, Henry Bobak. Dominic Vitale, James Giglio, Zygmunt Skorupka, Joe Hill, Sid Eby, Edgar Cusick, Leo Carroll, Walter Lindner, Edward Jablonski, Richard Nordaker, Mickey Augustynek, Ed Litzan, Stanley Wyrozumski, John Schutz, Jasper Gulatta, Don Koehn, and Robert Gaither. cm We now take a bow to the people who do not get credit as much as the teams, but they deserve it just as well because they encourage and assist the athletic activities. We mean the Cheerleaders, Band, Pep club, and Boys' Athletic Monogram Club. The Cheerleaders, who numbered eight in all, were seen at every game, whether it was football or basketball. They were the persons who acted like a bunch of fools in front of the people to make them yell and probably help to push that ball over that goal line for the winning points, or pushing that ball through the basket. The only two cheer leaders who will graduate this year are Gloria Mundo and ,joe Siwinski who have served 4 years apiece and acted as captains for the last two years. Corinne Mickey will assume the leader- ship of the squad next year. Other cheer leaders who served the team faithfully this year were: Kate Bertram, Kitty Kiester, Bob Goff, Stanley Partyka and John Yonke. All these people were under the supervision of Miss Shemaitis who served as cheer leading coach. New outfits were made by this years' group of yell-leaders. The boys wore purple pants with gold jerseys while the girls wore purple jackets and gold slacks. The band wrapped themselves up in some warm clothes and came out and played for every home game. At times they ran into competition with the opposing team that had their bands out. Then the uniforms came and boy did the eyes pop out of the people watching that band strut their stuff. They marched for two games, one with Argo and the other with Roosevelt. Wlien the basketball season rolled around, they could be found play- ing on the stage for every home game. The Boys' Athletic Monogram Club, which is in its third year at T. F. started out to be just a club, but has advanced more and more until they came to thc point where they could be depended on to do some real work. This club helped to make all kind of Athletic Activities successful, and they succeeded mostly in the Fractional Homecoming Football game and in the Boys, Athletic Carnival. FRFSHMAN-SOPHOMORI-I FOOT'I3Al.I. The club also helps the coaches decide in giving awards to athletes and helps school life by cooperating to the full- est extent with teachers, jani- tors, students, etc. Membership to the club is only through earning a major T. F. Monogram. The sponsors of the club are the head coaches of all sports. They are namelygCoachPctree, Coach Young, Coach Miller, Coach Kiester, Coach Potts and Coach Flvin. lastly, the pep club, which is only one year old is another organization which produces pep at all athletic contests. This club was started by the cheer leaders and Miss Shemai- tis, coach of cheer leaders.

HEAVY LOSERS, BUT sooo SPORTS "Old If I can only make this extra point, that'll mean we'll win antl won't have to play an overtime. Gee, I've got a little time so I guess l'Il say another prayer." Then the tense moment, could George Lacznv brealt a 36-36 tie and win the game with his lone free throw or would he miss and malte his mates play an overtime and possibly lose? Then poised, he shot, and made it, Yippee, and, oh boy, look at that crowtl go wild as the Meteors win over Argo in their initial game on December 2. A foul just before the gun went boom enabled George to shoot this free throw and caused these thoughts to flash through his mind. The next night the Meteors traveled to -Ioliet anal lost their first encounter to the Blue anti Goltl of Ioliet, 34-18. The following weelt the Young men brought their average up to .667 by defeating a bitter rival, Catholic Central of Hammond, 26-19. C743 ff , 5 Then the Meteors dropped two games to Lockport 16-14 and 25-18. Before a packed house Harvey visited our town and knocked our cagers off 36-26 in a hard contested battle. When we traveled to I-Parvey, we led at the half 16-9, but oh! that second half. The purple gang of Harvey swished baskets from everywhere and took another victory by a score of 41-19. Traveling to Blue Island on January 13, the Fractional team lost one of their toughest games of the year to the Red and White 28-27. In the other battle with Blue Island, they won again 29-21. Other league games which T. F. lost were one to Bloom and one to Kankakee. In competition against Indiana Schools, the Meteors lost to Hammond Tech 20-18 and George Rogers Clark 30-25. On February 11, the Fractionalites broke their losing streak and defeated Argo for the second time by a 35-22 score. The next week the Meteors took their second in a row defeating Bloom 20-18 in a thrilling game which knocked Chicago Heights out of the championship. This game will ever be remembered as the crowd was noisier than it ever had been on this night. The following week the Meteors climaxed their season with a 24-17 victory over On March 1, the Fractionalites opened the regional tournament at Bloom with a game against Joliet and were defeated 28-22. Despite the fact that T. F. won only 4 league games they came in third place together with Lockport in the league. They were both be- hind Harvey and Bloom who took first and second places respectively. Even though our boys didn't Win many games they proved to be a lot of good clean hard-fighting sportsmen. "It's just one of those seasons where We lost all the close ones," says Coach Young and he certainly told the truth. Boys who become alumni after this season are: ED SUMERACKI, a dead-eye at long shots and an excellent guard. Ed ranked as one of the best captains in school, and was very cooperative. PETER CHAPELLE is another man, who like Ed, was a good' floor player and easy on making baskets. RAY MELCHER, who was 25 percent of the height of the team, will be sorely missed for his rebounding and hard fight. GEORGE LACZNY, who had his good days and bad days, takes the speed of the team with him. Honorable mention may be given to NORMAN MCCULLOUGH who faithfully served the team as a reserve. Now for a word about those boys who are returning next year. Captain-elect EUGENE SCHULTZ, was a reserve last year and will be counted on for a large share of the work next year. DICK DERMODY the only south-paw on the team will be back next year and will prove quite a threat on the right side of offensive playing. GENE COYLE can be easily given the title of the best scrapper on the squad. ED STOKES, football captain for next year showed that he also had basketball ability in him. This winds up our summary of heavyweight basketball and now we will switch directly to the Championship Lightweight squad.

SOUTH SUBURBAN LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMPS After much intelligent practice, the Fractional lights were crowned South Suburban Champions with a league record of 11 won and 1 lost. In their initial game against Argo the boys won an easy 41-12 game after leading 22-5 at half-time. Joliet, always a consistent basketball threat beat our boys in a 35-27 battle. Captain Blackburn, Ollrich, and Petriska had 8 points apiece wich accounted for 6f7 of the scoring. Well, it was a 50-50 proposition, the boys lost one and Won one, so they had to win the next to raise their batting average, And they did, with 20-6 a final score over Catholic Central, After beating Lockport 26-22 the Meteorites defeated Hammond Tech to the tune of 23-19. Using 12 boys against the Harvey Kittens Coach Kiesterls boys got 51 points to the sister schools 15. Gene Ollrich still stayed in the spotlight with 13 points while Captain Blackburn tossed 9 points into the scoreboard. Blue Island proved easy bv howling to a 28-13 score with Petriska leading the gallant champions with 8 points as a weapon. Then the game that probably meant a championship for either team: the Fractional- Bloom game. Both teams were tied for hrst place and both teams were good. Bloom led 8-6 at the half but we finally won 16-14. Kankakee came over the night after the Bloom game and Won 19-16. This game ended the first round with T. F. tied with Bloom again for first place. 6763 FRESHMAN- ! .pq 1 21,1 'Vx fr--X1-7 . V xr ' ' ,j Again against Lockport, the Mcteorites initiated the second round with a 19-14 victory. Vfinning 31-15 over the Clark reserves the meteorites paced by Eddy Litzan, who made 6 baskets, beat Harvey again by a 36-15 score. Blue Island came here and lost also by a 52-15 score. I-Iuck was hot with 15 points. The Meteorites marched on, this time striking against Argo and winning 43-18. In the spotlight on this night was Ollrich with 16 points. Determined to play hard and win by an easier score, the gang once again upheld the victory torch. They beat Bloom 25-16 with their own captain leading the scoring with 10 points. Kankakee was the next victim, for we won 24-17. Wfell boys, hang your suits up while I tell the folks your history: Captain HARRY BLACKBURN proved to be an excellent captain, not only by leading his men on the floor, but by throwing spirit in their blood between games. BUD I-IUCK, an excellent guard, always played a nice game and was an excellent team worker. ANDY PETRISKA may receive a medal for his playing because according to many kids in school he's tops. EUGENE OLLRICH a lanky fellow played high point man for the champs. Gene was known as the man who could shoot at the basket about a million different ways. DONALD ARCHER who had trouble with red ink contacting his report card came in the second semester and added some good reserve strength. Don thinks 4 fculs is not enough allowance for one game fso it seemsj. I-IUBERT ZELESKY a dandy reserve worked hard during practice and got to play more than the coach thought he would use him. EDDIE LITZAN who does not leave basketball alone for a minute started as a far away reserve and through his hard work ended up playing regular. DANNY HOLOM, a freshman, proved to be plenty smart in his playing and managed to get enough quarters to' earn a letter. SOPHOMORE TEAM fx Jpi?Lp11yu-.- ., Yo - .

STASIAK BREAKS SWIM RECORDS Let's take a look into the swimming locker rocm for a few minutes and hear what the boys have to say. "Holy Mackeral, only two points and we'rc beat. Boy. Boy! if we could have gotten one more event, we'd have won." These boys are talking about the league meet which was won by Harvey, with Fractional coming in second, Uni- versity High third, and Argo fourth. Out of 15 meets Meteor Natators won 11 with 2 losses each to Hammond High and Harvey. As regards to records, this year's team broke them 15 times, 12 of which were broken by Peter Stasiak. In the opening meet the Meteors won easily and Pete Stasiak started out his season by breaking a few records. Washington also crumbled in T. F. water but Hammond High showed us we could be beat when she invited our boys to swim in her pool. Pete who was almost sure to break a record in every meet and had iust broken one in the 220 yard free style at Hammond and then showed Horace Mann how good he was by breaking 4 recordsg the school and pool records in the 40 and 100 yard free styles. U. High was the next victim to crumble under us, because they gave us 46 points while we only gave them 19. Harvey, who was destined to be South Suburban Champs, came over and beat us 38-28. In the free style relay, which would determine the winner, a T. F. man in the excitement dived in to early and the Harvey coach had so much sportsmanship that he allowed the race to go over. Lew Wallace of Gary, lost two of their meets to us. One score being 47-19 and the second time 35-24. Harvey beat us again when we went over there, only this time we favored better, 36-30. Froebel .was another team who lost to T. F. twice, with Pete setting the pace, over here we beat them 52-14 and 40-26 at Gary. Whiting who swam against us a second time were defeated 44-21 but Hammond came over C797 and won their second one against us to the tune of 40-26. The two remaining meets were against U. High and Washington who took it on the chin 32-29 and 40-26 respectively. In the State Meet held at Winnetka on Febru- ary 24 and 25, Fractional came in fourth place, this was the first year that T. F. ever placed in a state meet and had a man act as individual star. A man who is not mentioned much, but who is responsible for such an excellent team is Coach Bruce Miller. It was Bruce who saw that Pete and the fellows took a required number of laps and had a strenuous practice and it is this man that deserves credit as well as the team. Fortu- nately, he will still be here when the splashers take to the pool next year. Graduating from the ranks of this years team is Captain PETER STASIAK who can be honored for copping two state titles in the 50 and 100 yard free style. Pete was high man for the team and went undefeated through the season. His chief habit was breaking records while swimming. CHARLES GELLERSON another important man who was the teams back-stroker, leaves to- gether with ART TRIMBUR his team-mate. BOB CRANE who was the team's breast stroker will bid goodbye also. BILL FEUHRMEYER, who came over from Catholic Central, got into the swing of things and earned his letter during his only year of swim- ming with T. F. ARNOLD ZIMMER a faithful manager will no longer serve the team as he will make room for manager Frank Keller. Returning lettermen for next years squad are.: Captain-elect Bill Dagley, Peter Keck, Eugene Kowalski, Chester Buffington, and Bob Sausaman. Records made this year are: Peter Stasiak, pool and school records in 40 yard free style, :18.5 sec., 100 yard free style, :53.7 seconds, and the 220 yard free style, 2:23.1 seconds. Charles Geller- son holds the 100 yard back stroke with a time of 1:09.9 seconds. The Medley relay team, com- posed of Trimbur, Buffington, and Crane made a time of 1153.5 seconds, for a new pool record. C IW Bark Row: Coach Henry Potts, Walter Jazak, Walter Kma k, Bob Brinkman, Bill Korupinski, Don Ragoven, Richard Odcrwald, Leonard Pawlowski, Andy Molnar, Ray Graska, Manager, and Paul Radziejewski. Front Row: Ziggc Rucinski, Henry Dvojaek, Ray Paschke, Clyde Lawrence, Captain john Vander Aa, Fred Hackers, Leonard Schab, Edwin March, and Frank Rucinski. FINISH WITH 9 WINS, 3 LOSSES "Finishing up a season with 9 wins and only three losses is a pretty good recordf' :aid Captain Vander Aa as he hung up his shoes after his final year of wrestling. "Not so bad a record for a brand new coach, either," he added winking at Mr. Potts. The teams which fell to T. F. were Blue Island twice, Clark twice, Wfaishington, Parker, Calumet twice, and Morgan Park Military Academy. The teams that conquered the Purple and Gold were Roosevelt of E. C. who went on to grab second place in the Indiana High School State Meet and Hammond High. Boys who will bid adieu to the T. F. team are Captain VANDERAA, the teams heavyweight and heavy point getter. ZIGGE RUCINSKI, star for two years who went out getting all pins, will be sorely missed. HANK DVOJACK, who is known as the teams rubber man, was pinned only once through his wrestling season. Hank went on to win the Sectional title at Proviso in his weight. FRED HACKER who was very sure of himself while wrestling and started as a reserve will also trot out of the wrestling room. RAY PASCHKE, who started wrestling just this year worked hard and earned his last letter. RAY GRASKA who will be replaced by Paul Radziejewski did a very fine job as manager. Coming back next year will be the following lettermen. Captain-elect Edwin March, Clyde Lawrence, Frank Rueinski, Leonard Schab, and Bill Korupinski.

We athletic girls don't worry about getting our curly locks up-set or having our noses shine. We don't cry over broken finger-nails, and what's a scratch or two? Nothing . . . just a reminder to let us know that our opponent is right at our heels. Now, don't get us wrong, we try to im- prove our appearance, too, but girls, at the right time. In grandm:-.'s time, girls were stiff and inactive., but the tempo changes today. See the modern girl do her stuff at your own school. Why not stop at the girls, gym some day and see some real ability? No . . . you'rc right, we don't have competition with other schools or bring home any trophies, but we do have fun and can play a game of any sport. Not a sound . . . the players take their positions . . . a whistle is heard and another volleyball tournament is on its way. Helen Berwanger serves the ball to Lorraine Malak, who gives it a good wo knock so that it sails clear across the net to the junior team. Kay Sarros returns the ball to the seniors side and Doris Genko knocks it out of bounds. What a game . . . more fun and after four quarters of struggle, the seniors win by a margin of three,,points, 36 to 33. The girls who made the varsity volleyball team are: Nelda Berger, Nora Heimbach, Helen Ernst, Loretta Kohler, Lorraine Keilman, Lillian Kmatz. Jean Smith, Alice Sonnenberg, Leona Soczyk, and Beverly Millies. The freshmen put up a good fight, but lost to the juniors by a score of 43 to 26. The freshmen regained their pep and ability by winning over the sophomores 32 to 33. Chalk up another point . . . for the juniors, of course. Why, didn't you see that last basket that Lillian Kmatz put in? Plenty of ability was shown by Violet Ziemkowski, Lorraine Keilman, Marjorie Schultz, Mary Zaworski, Loretta Kohler, Corinne Mickey, Kay Sarros, Jean Smith, Betty O'Conner, Muriel Anderson, Virginia Lewandowski, Mildred Hecht, and Lillian Kmatz members of the captain basketball championship team. if Q' 'z GIRLS WITH MAJOR LETTERS Alice Sonnenberg, Evelyn Sumeraeki, Mary Margaret Keller. Beverly Millies, Leona Soczyk. The juniors whipped the seniors 41 to 33. Violet Ziemkowski is one of the most valuable players that the juniors have on their team. Right from the beginning of the tournament the juniors led in a whirl-wind fashion and took advantage of all penalties put on the sophomores. The score ended 27 to 26. "Dead-eye" Mickey, a junior player, has a style all her own in shooting . . . and it works, too. Although Nelda Berger handled the basketball quite well, she failed to bring her freshman team on top, losing to the iuniors 43 to 17. As results of the Captain Basketball tournament, Shirley Blackburn, Kitty Kiester, Lillian Kmatz, Loretta Kohler, Corinne Mickey, Beverly Millies, Jeanne O'Conner, jean Smith, Leona Soczyk, Alice Son- nenberg. and Violet Zicmkowski made the varsity. Now it's time for basketball and all the gals hurry to get the required practices. Finally the big day arrives. Hand in hand down the court race Ann Soczyk, Leona Kowalski, Kitty Kiester, and Dorothy Becker, forwards on the sophomore team. They defeated the freshman team 31 to 33. Dorothy Krass, Nelda Berger and Harriet Drabek played forwards on the freshman team. Jeanne C333 O'Conner, a sophomore forward, has a lot of what it takes to bring her team on top, beating the freshman team 27 to 18. A tall lassie from Lan- sing with keen athletic abilities is Norma Trin- owski, member of the senior championship team, who helped defeat the juniors 41 to 24. Members of this "All American" basketball team are: Alice Sonnenberg, Esther Turner, Leona Soczyk, ,lean Smith, Beverly Millies, Dorothea Kurzeja, Helen Berwanger, Dorothy Sass, Evelyn Sumeraeki, Mary Margaret Keller, Norma Trin- owski, and Audrey Smith. Outstanding perform- ance was also shown by Leona Soczyk, Beverly Millies, Alice Sonnenberg, Helen Ernst, Lillian Kmatz and Evelyn Sumeracki, three forwards and three guards who made the varsity. We have ,five top notchers in G. A. C. who earned their letters and are proud to display them on their sweaters. First, "Killer Diller Kellern we call her! You know, that little blonde that seems to possess all the pep and zip. Mary Margaret Keller is what we call a perfect slugger when it comes to hitting the baseball around, and we gals wouldn't part with her for anything. Second on the list is Beverly Milliesg a G. A. C. cutie is "Bev," who can give a lot of information on any sport. She was high point man in several of the tournament games and starred in one . . . armed push shots. Next in line we have Leona Soezyk. "Lee" proved to be one of the fastest gals the senior team ever had. Although a bit short she manages to be on every varsity. She heads the sport of basketball with an iron hand. The fourth girl on our list is Alice Sonnenberg. "Sonny" is a senior who has served three years on the G. A. C. board. During her sophomore year, she was head of the volleyball and did a keen job of it. The following year she was elected to the position of vice-president, and this year heads the club as president. Last we have Evelyn Sumeracki with a year of experience on the G. A. C. board. Serving as secretary, "Eva" proved that she is capable in the business world as well as a nifty SpOt'tSWOmal1. lt's here again! Yes, the club that had been dissolved a few years ago when the old building had been destroyed by Ere. Now it's in the lime- light again. Girls, you need not be an expert swimmer to join the club. So why not come out? Your dreams of becoming a diver become realities under the expert guidance of our sponsor, Miss Shemaitis. Every Thursday the following girls are found down in the old swimming hole practicing their diving: Patsie Throop, Bernace Jacques, Helen Berwanger, Betty Overmeyer, Elizabeth Stasiak, Esther Turner, joan Clark, Loretta Kohler, Audrey Smith, Elizabeth Hesselbarth, Dorothy Cerovina, leanne Lauerman, Lillian Kmatz, Irene Taborski, Virginia Fedosky, Arlene Knott, Marie Mayer, Mary Katherine Bertram, Mary Sabados, Alma Sausaman, Faye Sausaman, Jeanette Andersen, and Evelyn Dabich. Boy! Was our water circus a success. And wasn't that mock wedding just too funny for words? But after all, you must have something artistic. The water ballet took care of that part. The dives a few of the girls exhibited were not to be sneered at. l'd like to see you do them. "Say it took me quite a while to master that dive," said Loretta Kohler one of the members of the expert diving group. Esther Turner has what we call a "ducky" way of swimming. Come one, come all and obtain the recipe for a perfect swan dive from our dimpled checked senior, Audrey Smith. TIQRRAPIN CLUB Mary Katherine Bertram. Dabiek.

MINAS COMPANY DEPARTMENT STORE 1965 TWO ENGINEERS By lad Broeiel "She's 110K soupin' the extra juice as she shouldln Charley shouted above the ear-splitting roar of the mammouth oil burning furnaces. Barney came over to Charley's side. Carefully they studied the instru- ment studded brain of our heating plant. Combining the information gathered from these gauges and the wealth of experience gained through years of work -- our engineers quickly solved this perplexing prob- lem. In a few hours the oil-feeder was repaired. As it was explained to me later in an interview, this was but one of hundreds of problems that crop up around our high school. "But," Charley was quick to explain,"every one of 'em have been solved." "XVhy sho'uldn't they be" he asked, "I've worked for some of the largest companies in Chicago, including being Chief engineer at Wfestern Union, Stratford Hotel and Millrite at the Large Chicago Stoekyardsf' At the question of his earlier life Charley admitted he once sang to hold the crowds in a large Chicago' restaurant. Also he reluctantly told of his artistic talent fthe rooms of his home are covered with the oil paintings he does as a hobbyj . Barney was a little bashful to talk about his earlier youth . . . but Charley gave me the dope. fCUI1fIlIlll'll un max! pugvj PLAY SAFE!

With a twinkle in his eye Barney pulled out a leather case, "See I still have my union card yet today." At this point in the interview . . . these two grand fellows offered to take me on a personal tour of electrical and heating plants in other words - Fractional under- world. On that tour I saw miracles of science and steel I shall never forget. STRANGE SENIOR FACTS Do you realize that coming from T. F.'s own senior class we find some of the most amazing facts? One, foriinstance, Hildegard Ruedt has come all the way from Stuttgart, Germany to attend Thornton Fractional. Besides Hilde- gard there are others who came from far away to add to the popu- lation of our school. Some of these are Mildred Cohen from San Diego, California, and Mary Ann Hasiak from Winnepeg, Canada. Jumping back to the United States we find that Ogden, Utah suffered a great loss when Frank Serafini moved to Calumet City and the same loss was suffered in I-Iaff, Montana when Johanna Koenes was added to our student body. One very strange coincidence is that Betty Jane McLaughlin was born on the same date that her brother Robert was born only, a year later. And, speaking of births it might interest you to know that the most popular birth-place of our T. F. seniors is Calumet City which scored 50 births. Getting around to ages we iigure that the average age of our seniors is 17.732 years, and taking those numbers we have Esther Turner as the youngest and Ed Koefclda the oldest.

The log in the hearth responded to the situation with a flare of quick, bright light as it broke, eaten by the ever-hungry flame. The dog plodded excitedly back and forth while the man placed' a fire screen to protect his furnish- ings in his absence, searced for his hat, got his hip-boots - the creek must be on a "bender', from the wild ravings of it to be heard - clambered into a disguising rain coat, found a flashlite and finally opened the creaking, warped door. fContinuecl on next pagej WHOZIT?

No sound but the pad pad of dog's feet and chush chush of his companion mingled with the rustle of the needless as the sky continued to bathe them. The two shivered at their clammy surround- ings and drew closer to the covcr- ings which shielded them. It is a long pathway they walked. A pathway trod by very few. On either side the dripping, tottering fox gloves and squaw brush mingled in a jumbled fashion with the rhodoclendron and taller trees. He did not need the flashlight to aid him. He knew the path well, he could sense the surroundings even as an Indian scout might. By the odor he might have knowng the pungcncy of the broken fir needles, the sweet penetrating odor of newly washed flowers. They were coming nearer to where the sound had come from. The dog led the way over the bridge made of split logs. Little sound of footsteps could be heard. If one were deaf. yet certainly the froth of the water would testify of the tumultuous uproar this arch spanned. A light appeared ahead!! A rosy, the bundle heaped behind it. fC0llfiH1l0zI on next pagej XVHOZIT? Lanky Optomistic Unusually nice Interesting Sports enthusiast Easy going Picture on page 116 Wm.
