Today the older generation is viewing the unsettled
World with alarm. Much time is spent by them in
meditating about the consequences of past events. But
they are lacking the essence of youth -the ability
to look forward. Youth with its silly fads, slang, and
spontaneous enthusiasm is enjoying the present, and
looking forward unafraid to the future. The 1939
CHRONOSCOPE attempts to depict how Thornton
Fractional "Youth Looks At Life."

Eighteen men . . . fifteen women ..... some our pet hates
others our hero-es ..... but division remains constant ..... the
women ..... the men ..... the old battle of the ages ..... man
versus woman ..... whois tops at T. li? ..... numerically we say
men ...,. but do the students count them as their favorites? ..,..
teachers are all very human, and there isn't a one who has escaped
the dislike of some student, and the1'e isnit a one who isnit a favorite
with many l'l1Ol'C.
lt isn't their knowledge, their teaching ability. how they work,
which ligure in this final result, but the way Mr. Smith whistles on
his 'sssss, and how he'll always give the kids a break ..... Mr. Frey,
our absent minded prof, who carries around such a mess of formulae
in his head, you wonder how it can keep from bursting.
The twinkle in Mr. Nelson's eye when he knows he has scared
a freshman half out of his wits ..... Mr. McPhail with his nervous
enthusiasm offsetting tlie true sophistication of Miss Brummett .....
Machine Gun Allen, whose rapid thinking and talking spurt like
bullets ..... Mr. 'Elvin whose smooth appearance is coupled with a
smooth flow of talk occasionally peppered with "Now, donit you see?'i
You need to know no English lit, but make the Daily News your
Bible and revere the White Sox above all else and we promise you a
drag with Mr. Blanke ...,. don't feel important when flip Miss
McKeehan slaps you on the back ..... she'll probably send you to
detention tomorrow ...,. she is "The Lady of Many Moodsfi . . . . .
The versatile Brazzil sisters, Helen and Katherine. are not only
teachers but athletes and musicians as well ..... how Mrs. Canaga
gets on that little stool and expounds "l refer you to Mr. Beard, Mr.
Bassett, Mr. Elson, Mr. liish, Mr. XY'ilson -- these are my authorities
for that statement!" ..... Henry Potts, jolly and good natured, and
no playmate, they say, when it comes to making bookkeeping assign-
Sfilllllillxf Adeline C. Alaaeks, Alta Stautfer, Yivian Abraham, Alice Melieehan, Mrs. Ruth Hale Canaga.
Silliug: lirances Spohn, Mary Shemaitis, NX'anetah Brummett, Lois Heigl, Anna Schmidt, Sigrid Moe.
Mr. Luce's only complaint in auto shop ..... "No girls" ..... li , if
poor fellow ..... our "debutantish', Miss Lois Heigl talking to the 'N V
mainstay of G.A.C., Miss jaacks, the personification of the old T. l'.
spirit ..... "The Man About Town" - Mr. Leonard ..... Miss
Moe forever to be remembered for her morning eye opener announce-
ments ..... the high school girl's dream in actual life-Coach Young.
Though Mr. Lambka spends most of his life with the Old Greeks
and Romans, he has 1939 ideas ..... "Uh dear, I'm just all out of
breath," may be heard many times from the lady with a multitude of
duties, Miss Schmidt ..... W'ilbur Petree - the "big shot" of all
the coaches ..... those simmering steaks, refreshing salads, and good
looking custards, found in the cafeteria all planned by small but
efliieient Miss Stewart .....
Bruce Miller's deep drawling voice bespeaking great inner strength
. . . . . a physical ed teacher with a big heart for the little "red capsn
- Miss Shernaitis ..... Mr. jackson, a big game hunter, when it
comes to pink passes . . . . .
XVe wonder what Mr. Kiester is always so secretely amused about
. . . . . combination of beauty and brains - Miss Abraham . . , . Miss
Alta Stauffer - a composure that eanit be shaken ..... a big
surprise in a little package - Miss Kessinger ..... Mr. Christian,
a slight fellow. who can always produce a big noise ..... the most '
beautiful teeth in the world - Miss Spohn ..... "Beau l5rummell"
with a 3-decker brain - Mr. Lionel Miller.
One who is not a regular member of the faculty but nevertheless
an important addition ..... Ur. Bascomb. Though his job is big.
he always finds time for those little sniffles and sprains.
And here they are, not a class to be set off aside from others, but
each one with a multitude of those very human traits that make

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
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

We've enjoyed our four years here at dear old T. F. so much that we
hopefully intend to continue our schooling. We also realize that a good
education is very essential in order to get on in the world. Everything
we get or hope to get is finally gained through our own initiative and so
the higher we set our goal - the harder we'll strive to reach that goal.
That is why we feel that we should continue our education and training
before we enter the world more completely prepared to fight against all odds.

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
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,
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
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
The orchestra still has Eleanor Hagerman, Hazel
Hishon, Henry Grych, Genevieve Pryor, and
William Klemm to take the places left by the
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
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
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

Stop! 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 ....
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
Wilbur Coles anal Steve Sertic are faithful members of the Boys' Club
Board, which could hardly get along without them.
After seeing these examples of the superb sophomore class, there should
be no doubt in your mind as to which is the best class.

ONE CONSTANT ROUND OF ACTIVITIES
Wfhy do we girls work for the Girls' Club? 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

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,

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.

Joe Siwinski and Dick Dermody have a mighty

The iunior editorial staff or Bernice Jacques,

Those "ads" which are s0 necessary to the

"XVh.1t do you think of Quincy Howe as an

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

Didn,t modest Mr. Christian look surprised when
he came on the stage for his present? He shouldn't

so hard in directing the music.
Miss Shemaitis looked as though she had more
fun putting on the show than the members of the

The Carnival has different meanings to different
students. Some recall funny incidents . . . others
think of it as the greatest social event of the

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
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
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

IT'S ALL IN A INIIGI-IT'S MANEUVERS
"I just waved to my mom . . . do you think Mr. Christian saw me? Say, are your
fingers and valves frozen like mine are? . . . 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.

"Oh, Say Can You Sing?"
Well we can show you how its done.
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,
The Girls' Chorus members certainly envy the Double Sextet
because these girls were specially hand-picked by Mr. McPhail,
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.
"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
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.

it in our inimitable way, and that really is going
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
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
ln our opinion, we think, the crowd enjoys our
playing because they really do clap for us and how.

will linger awhile in your memory until you hear
from us again and soon.

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

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

gives us a lot of practice and experience in en-

for the cadet organization.

as we can because we want to get out into the
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

ambition in our minds and that is the 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.

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
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
"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.
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
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.
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.
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
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.

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
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
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
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
After beating Lockport 26-22 the Meteorites defeated Hammond Tech to the tune
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.

Again against Lockport, the Mcteorites initiated the second round with a 19-14

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
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
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
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.

P. 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
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
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
and won their second one against us to the tune
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.
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
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
Coming back next year will be the following lettermen. Captain-elect Edwin
March, Clyde Lawrence, Frank Rueinski, Leonard Schab, and Bill Korupinski.

THEY PLAY THE GAME FAIR AND SQUARE
Sissiesll Not by a long shot.
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
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
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
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
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.
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
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-
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
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,
Mary Katherine Bertram.

wealth of experience gained through
years of work -- our engineers

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

earlier life Charley admitted he
once sang to hold the crowds in a

reluctantly told of his artistic

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
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

On the window pane,
Glide on down the window
With a blurry stain.
Each tiny little raindrop
As it spatters on the glass
Merges with the others
To join the thirsty grass.
Awakened by its presence,
The dried' blades come to life,
Stretch forth in gay, green gladnessg
Rain has put an end to strife.
So on a summerls evening
Of lovely scenes and views,
Be thankful for the rains
Which keep them beautiful for you.

DEAR C. M. CContinuedJ
Mr. Blanke used to be one of my
favorite teachers. Yes, I know you
never did like himg still, I always
defended him - that is, till now.
On report card' morning I'll bet he
eats an extra lemon for breakfast
. . . at least the 78 I got wasn't
overdosed with sugar . . . after the
way I did my work almost every
day and some extra at times too . . .
I'll never be able to get on that
honor roll . . . and grandma always
says "Bugs, I didn't see your name
on the honor roll in the Times this
month. Did they forget to put it
in?" Just like that, see. Then I
begin to explain about how the
teachers at Fractional are so very
stingy with grades . . . the same
line every six weeks . . . my aunt
always looks skeptical . . . as if
hcr own little darlings ever did anv
better!! Have you got that kind
of trouble? Well, at least you are
in athletics, and you have your
major letter . . . when you strut
down the corridors you look im-
portant Qeven if I know betterj.
I saw you going into detention
last night . . . ha ha, I'm so very
sorry that you have a hard time
making classes on time. You must
be walking some girl to classes. I
imagine Mr. Jackson has his eye
on you . . . I saw him staring at
your dust yesterday. He'll get you
next time if you aren't careful.
