S. SOP!-ICMCRE AND F. PRES!-IMAN REMINISCE
Sammy Sophomore and Fannie Freshman were remi-
niscing over the past records of the sophomore and fresh-
"Our freshman G. A. C. team composed of such outstand-
inq players as Betty McCloskey, Florence Lorenz, Wayneta
Dyer, and Betty Rentner sure gave the sophomores hard bat-
tles, and if Abby Abblett, Barbara Gilbreath, leanette Klein,
Norma Urbanski, and Lillian Hudzik hadn't had so much speed
and skill We would have won almost all the F reshmen-Sopha
"The varsity certainly will find good players on our
freshmen-sophomore team. lust Watch Chester Mazur, lack La
Noue, and Bill Archer, and those two freshmen, Fred Slink-
ard and Mike Nagy are not to be sneezed at either. Yes sir,
we really are good!"
"Oh, quit bragging," Fannie remarked, "you'd think you
were everything. Look at our freshmen-sophomore debaters.
Evelyn and Erma Ault lost only a few matches and Richard
Sikorski and Gordon Buffington aren't doing so bad, and
Florence Lynn will be on the varsity next year."
Then too, let us add, our Lightweight Basketball team had
several outstanding freshmen and sophomores. There was Art
Ollrich, Ed Kuhlrnan, and Ed Skarwecki who with the -aid of
freshmen Wally I-lorvatich and Charlie Gallota won many
thrilling victories for the squad.
When it comes to music and the finer arts, our classes
aren't left out of the picture. Mr. McPhail's Double Sextet would
be in a bad way if it Weren't for Phyllis Nordaker, Thelma
Hoggatt, Doris Becker, and Lila Mae Winterhoff. The Girls'
Chorus is also grateful to the sophomores who have become
very valuable to them during the past year.
Do you remember the Boys' Sports Carnival? Orville Fta-
goven gave everybody a thrill with his unusual serve in ping-
pong. Bill Eby and lack Thaldorf provided the wrestling en-
thusiasts with many exciting moments. lim Lietzan, Don l-leintz,
lack Miller and Eugene Sobczak adding punches in boxing
were another interest.
This certainly proves to good old T. F. that we youngsters
are ready to take the place of the upper classmen. There
won't be much to worry about because everything will be in
good hands. Don't you think so?

D. A. R. REPRESENTATIVE-Ieanne O'Connor
Always a cheery smile for everyone, a super-super salesman, our Girls'
Club President, a faithful G. A. C. memberg in fact, a typical T. F. student-
that just about sums up Ieanne O'Connor. And to climax her high school
days she was selected by the faculty and the girls as the D. A. R. Repre-
sentative of our school.
EDGAR THEDENS-State Champion in Extemporaneous Speaking K
The Patrick Henry of T. F.-that's Edgar Thedens. Sweeping his way
through the district, winning the State Championship for extemporaneous
speaking, where he competed with the best speakers from high schools all
over the state of Illinois, and finally he traveled to Lexington, Kentucky,
where he lost out in the semi-finals, after winning the honor of being among
the ten best speakers in the country.

CLADYS LEEDY LOOKS GVER
I-IER DEBATE NGTES
Boy, we had a swell debate season this year! I've just been figuring
up and we took part in over 350 debates and made trips totaling over
2,000 miles. There were over fifty students that actually debatedg also' we
have the largest debate club in this part of the country as regards the
number of debaters, the number of debates, and the expense account.
Our varsity squad of eight teams, coached by Mr. Allen, placed first
in the Hammond High Tournament in November.
When we had our tournament, we placed tenth out of ten schools.
The next week, we came through with flying colors and took undis-
puted first place in the Rockford Tournament, where twenty-three schools
competed. Edgar Thedens, Florence Lynn, Bob Biederman, Billy Gibbons,
Gladys Leedy, and Wilfred Kraegel made the trip with Mr. Allen and Mr.
They didn't give decisions at Hinsdale, but Edgar Thedens and Corinne
Tarras received very high individual ratings.
After Christmas, first came Elkhart. We placed first again, sharing
honors with two other schools. Then we invaded La Porte and tied for
second place. I
Mr. Allen and Mr. Davis took us to Rock Island to Augustana College,
where we had loads of fun but we failed to place.
Mr. Allen took the debaters and Mr. Davis took the speech people to
Charleston, Illinois, where also we had only fun to show for it because
we failed to place.
When the National Forensic League held their toumament at Elgin, we
went there with nothing to gain because no Illinois schools could go to
Then we went to Decatur and tied for second place in their Invitational
Tournament. Here Mr. Allen took only four debaters: Edgar Thedens, Flor-
ence Lynn, Bob Biederman, and Billy Gibbons.
And then we had our two leagues, the Interstate Debate League, come
posed of Illinois and Indiana schools, and the Metropolitan Union, composed
of the schools of Chicago and vicinity. We gave Clark a good fight to
take second place in the Interstate League but We triumphed over her and
many other schools to win two trophies tone a traveling cup and the other
our very ownl in the Metropolitan Debate Union.
When the district meet was held here at T. F. the debaters succeeded
in placing high enough to be entitled to go to the State Finals held at
Urbana, but they did not qualify to go to the Nationals.
THEY TALKED Tl-IEMSELVES
Talk . . . talk . . . talk! can make you laugh or cry, or even start
you thinking politically all in a few minutes: but, at least we succeeded
in impressing a number of people at the various meets we attended. We
took part in meets at Elgin, Hammond, Charleston, and Clark.
When spring came it also brought the payoff for all the work the kids
had put into their various speeches. At the National Forensic League tourn-
ament at Elgin, 'I'hedens took first place in extemporaneous speaking and
won an invitation to the National tournament in Lexington, Kentucky.
Then the district speech and debate tournament were held here and
Betty Gerold placed first in serious and second in poetry reading: Albert
Wahlgren placed first in original oratoryp Irma Winterhoff placed second in
oratorical declamationg Doris Follick placed second in humorous reading:
and Thedens again took high honors in extemporaneous speaking.
To make a long story short, T. F. won first place and the entire squad
and Mr. Davis went to the State Meet at Urbana. Here again Thornton Frac-
tional made good because they came home with the second place cup, and
two contestants, Betty Gerold and Edgar Thedens, eligible for the National
At Lexington, Kentucky, where 900 of the best high school speakers in
the country gathered for the National Contest, Betty Gerold and Edgar
Thedens carried the banner of Thornton Fractional. Mr. Davis accompanied
them to the meet. Edgar carried the load through the preliminaries and the
semi-finals and finished tenth of all contestants entered. Betty Gerold was
eliminated after three rounds in serious reading and lasted to the quarter-
finals in poetry. -

Donald was the high ticket salesman this year this first year

fourth year as a salesman, sold l,0l0 tickets.
In the lower left hand corner of the opposite page you
see 32 of the top-notch Thorntonian salesmen. These students
showed their school spirit by getting out with their sales sheets
and actually selling 'a total of 1350 subscriptions for the whole
year. This is, undoubtedly, a laudable accomplishment.
ln the lower right hand corner is the picture of the out-
standing football ticket salesmen. lf they weren't so enthusi-
astic there' never would have been such huge crowds at the
The seven highbasketball ticket salesmen, pictured in
the upper right hand corner accounted for a good share of
the crowds present at the home games. Don't you think these
kids, stooges to some of you, deserve a word of praise every
now and then? They get out and do things for the school.
They are probably pests to you but you w'ouldn't think so if
you had to pay 35c at the door.
In the upper left hand corner you see the assembly ticket
salesmen. They sold tickets to the Dearborn Orchestra con-
cert, the senior movie, the Amateur show and many others.
But to Mi-ss Iaacks goes the credit for organizing a sales
staff so that it functions effectively and efficiently.
ln the morning announcements you probably remember
hearing an announcement like this, "All students who want
to sell tickets to the movie report to room 221 between 8:00
and 8:30 tomorrow morning."
The next morning about 20 salesmen would flock in the
door and scramble for tickets. ln nothing flat they would be
shouting in the halls like this, "Here ya' are kids-tickets for
the best movie a runnin'-right here .... Say, you're gonna
get your ticket from me aren't ya'? l'l1 see you tomorrow in
the cafeteria. Don't forget to bring your money!!I"
That's the way it goes. Never an idle moment for Miss
Iaacks's salesmen. And why
not? Miss Iaacks puts her C
heart and soul into it. She
takes time to have those
tickets made and she sits up
in her room at noon waiting , 2
for her salesmen to bring in
their money and take out
more tickets. She is the one
who is really responsible for
the success of the ticket sell- 'fu
ers this year.

lt looks as if the Girls' Club came through this year with
lying colors. Every activity seemed to be a bigger success
han the last.
The Big and Little Sister Party on September l2 started
he year off and the Girls' Club Dance on October l8, was a
eather in their cap!
Spooks, witches, and
way from the l'lallowe'en Partv on October 31. Games, prizes,
I ancing, and taffy apples
During Christmas they also sold Christmas seals for the
uberculosis drive and dressed dolls to be sent to the orphan-
ges. The Faculty Tea on December l5 cari't be left out when
ou think of Christmas in the Girls' Club. The sight of the blue
nd silver Christmas tree and all the nuts, cookies, and sand-
iches assured you Christmas was almost here.
Miss Schmidt, due to illness, wasn't able to attend the
Alumnae Party given on February ll. The girls were disap-
pointed, but nevertheless the party was a success. Remember
the class stunts and quiz program?
black cats couldn't scare the girls
made the traditional party a bang-

ing about the Boys' and Girls' Club roller skating party with
a record crowd on March 17.
Bow day on May l found us wearing big tissue paper
nbowsl Green, orange, blue, and red bows, a sight to rival
any other in school.
The year ended with their most impressive event, the
Mother-Daughter Party on May 2. You won't forget the school
.talent that performed nor the awarding of the T. F. pins, nor
all the mothers wearing pink carnations and accompanied by
proud daughters. The candle lighting ceremony will always
be remembered as the chief thrill of that evening, only sur-
passed by the moment when Virginia Fedosky, the new presi-
ldent, walked down the arch of lighted candles with leanne
O'Connor. That moment alone, if no other, will always remind
you of this past year in Girls' Club.

The date of the first event sponsored by
the Boys' Club was September 25, when a

boys. The frosh were welcomed by Mr.

and then they were treated to a thrilling
motion picture and refreshments.

IRMA WINTERHOFF TELLS HOW SHE BECAME EDITOR
As I look back over the years I spent working
on the Thorntonian, I recall many happy mem-
ories. I remember being in Miss Moe's freshman
English class together with many other students
who later worked with me on the Thorntonian. I
remember the thrill we all got when Miss Moe
told us that we were going to have a class proj-
ect, and this was to be a class paper. We all
slaved to get out a
super-swell paper, and
aiter we had a little
experience we divided
the class into several
staffs to get out sev-
And then, Miss Moe
asked if any of the
class would like to
help with the Thorn- G
tonian. Oh joy! lust
imagine working on
the Thorntonianl High
hopes arose in my
head just as they
probably crept into
the heads of my class- .....,
mates. My hand shot
up, and then Miss
Moe told me to come in during my free period
and give it a try. Now I thought I'd really get a
chance to write articles for the Thorntonian.
First hand stooge, that was me throughout my
entire work in the staff room While I was a fresh-
man. I had to check names, count words, dis-
tribute assignment slips, run after ink and paper,
sharpen pencils, and everything from soup to
nuts. But I was gaining experience.
When the school year ended, Miss Moe said
she was going to do something handsome for me
because I was always so eager and ready to
work. I came back to school in the fall anxiously
awaiting my promotion. Now I was a sophomore
and with that whole year's experience of stoog-
nig behind me, I would probably get to be assist-
ant editor. Well, the day came when I was pro-
moted. But I Wasn't even given a staff position.
I was to write REWRITES for the Lansing paper.
Ooooohhhh! ! !
We worked hard during that year in journal-
ism class, and now we were going to be reward-
ed at a supper. I was sitting at the supper try-
ing to listen to the speaker, but thoughts were
racing back and forth through my head, and I
couldn't keep my
mind on what he was
saying. Next year. I'd
be a senior. Maybe,
maybe I'd be editor,
oh, but I daren't think
of ity I've been disap-
pointed too much: I
don't want to be dis-
appointed again, but
I hope, I hope. Finally
Miss Moe got up to
ann.ounce the next
year's staff. I held my
about itl Don't expect
it!! DON'T!l And
then, my name. My
goal had at last been
reached. I was editor.
Looking back over the past year, I remember
the times I'd had to holler at joe Lietzan for not
getting his stuff in on time, or for having too
many words. I remember how Donald Koehn was
the true Dead Line Kid. He always got his articles
in on time and was always willing to do more.
I'll never forget those long hours I spent after
school, those long dreadful hours on Friday nights
finishing up the work the others had failed to do:
hurriedly writing, frantically typing, carefully
scanning the copy for errors and then nearly
finished being told to get out of the building by
"Con," our over-zealous janitor.
Yes, I've really enjoyed my work on the Thorn-
tonian. It's a grand experience for anyone. It's
entertaining and it's educational, and it's an ex-
perience l'll forever cherish.

UIMACINARY INVALID" I-IICI-ILY RATED
The junior play, "The Imaginary Invalid" presented on March 14, proved to be one
of the juniors' biggest achievements during the year. Out of a group of fifteen high schools
and colleges who presented the play, the junior cast, directed by Mr. Angus McPhail, Was
chosen as one of the three best and was invited to Whiting High School on May 24 to pre-
sent the second act.
The forever ailing Imaginary Invalid was well enacted by lack Biota who was con-
tinually teased by his mischievous maid. Betty Ann Bappe. The romantic angle of the play
was provided by Harvey Dean as the handsome hero, and Elizabeth Hesselbarth as the
beautiful daughter of the Imaginary Invalid. The scheming gold digger, the wife of the lm-
aginary Invalid, eagerly awaiting his death was Adelaide Miller. The outstanding sup-
porting cast included Lillian Horst as the Imaginary Invalid's youngest daughter, Bob Bent-
ner as his brother, Eugene Annen as the crafty lawyer, Harold Perkins, the apothecary,
Kenyon Tweedell, a doctor and a disgrace to his profession, and Bichard Keller, another
doctor who tried to wed his son, played by Stanley Dembowski, to the Imaginary Invalid's

AMERICA FIRST FRANKLY A PROPOCANDA PLAY
"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women
merely players. They have their exits and their entrances-."
At this point let us interrupt to say that the "world" is our
school and the men and women just the students. The stage
is set for "America First," the Senior Play and there is old
Bill Shakespeare CAngus McPhaill telling his cast just
what to do.
"l say there, Lee, thou dost not speak that line correctly,
and thou, Lizzy, shouldst put more emotional feeling into that
last line. Gladys, thou art a victim of juvenile emotionalism and
thou must remember that thine own feelings of affection are not
returned. Ye gods, Grandfather, thou art too spry for an
elderly gentleman! Yea, Dorothy, Owen and thou are doing
fine. Franz, thou must keep thy military bearing and do not
forget that thou art a sleek individual with an ingratiating
manner. Ola, the accent, thou must not forget it. Mrs. Holmes,
dost thou know what it means to get angry? And thou must
not forget that thou art an officer of the police, Frank. And
thou, jimmy Banks, must remember that a rather shady per-
son does not indulge in laughter every time something
To put all this aside, the Senior Play, "America First,"
was presented by the senior class of l94l, on May 91 As
usual the play was a big success and everyone who saw it
enjoyed it a great deal.
And here is the story. Grandpa Holmes CEd Swanson? is
a thin, stoop-shouldered, trembly old man of 96. He has no
patience with Elizabeth Boggs, Cjeanne O'Connorl the middle-
aged housekeeper, who is a fussy, nervous woman with a red
face and work-worn hands and she has little tolerance with
Lee, CDonald Koehnl the young man who, with jimmy Banks,
Clieith Howmillerj a rather tough character, gets mixed up
with foreign agents. As the plot thickens, Ola CGloria Poppenl
and Franz CFrank Hilll, the spies, influence jimmy and Lee
more and more, until Mrs. Holmes CBetty Geroldl, Lee's mother
discovers the whole thing. Dorothy Clrma Winterhoffl Lee's
sister, and Owen iFred Green? her sweetheart, discover the
theft of important plans which Frank Holmes fjoe Terrel, Lee's
uncle, finds on Ola Kring. ln the meantime, Gladys Calay
Cjeanne Sibleyl, the young lady who likes Lee, turns up with
some damaging evidence. But then of course all things must
end and so did this with everybody in his proper place.
TWELFT!-I ANNUAL CARNIVAL
"Hurry, hurry, hurry, folks! Don't miss it. lt's the Twelfth
Annual Carnival of Thornton Fractional Township High School!
No pushing now! Come on everybody! Main show will be
on in a few minutes. lt's the show oi a life-time. Right this way
to the big top-l mean gym, to see the ga-ratest show on
earth! The Scandals of l94O!"
Well, there's no doubt about that sir! Everybody knows
that the Carnival is the garatest show on earth and always
STACED NGVEMBER 29th '
On Friday, November 29, 1940 at 8 P.M., the students of
Thornton Fractional presented their Twelfth Annual 'Carnival
"Scandals of l94U," under the direction oi Miss Mary She-
maitis, Miss Helen Brazzill, Mr. Harold Christian, and Mr.
Angus McPhail. V
The first number of the main show was a ballet dance
with the Girls' Chorus for accompaniment. The chorus sang
"Lieberstrum" and "Sweet Songs of Long Ago," and the girls
glided gracefully across the stage. Then Rita Wright did Ct

fo, Q Q,
solo tap dance followed by Lorraine Kimmet, singing a cow-
boy song. lust before the double sextette sang "Sibonney" and
"Wedding of the Painted Doll" there was a chorus of soft
shoe dancers. Kay Bertram did an acrobatic dance and, not
to be out done, Myrl Larrance sang.
But now, fun for all, the W.L.S. Barn Dance a la T.F. fol-
lowed by a more soothing melody by lrma and Lila Mae
Winterhoff. A bit of old Heidelberg, starring loe Terre and his
cornet was next on the program. From the German to the
Latin! Conga and-Six Lessons From Madam La Zonga sung
by Angeline Vitale. Everybody knows that variety is the spice
of life so we now give you a dance by the Deep Sea Pirates
and then came the Devils in the roller skating act by Betty
Dobbins and Dick Trammel.
Now-'feMr. Bernard Nondorf, Mr. Archibald Boss, Mr. Don-
ald Koehn, Mr. Dominic Vitale, Miss Henrietta Bobak, Miss
Bussela Buhring, Miss Eddie lablonski, and Miss "Tommie"
Shaffer came forth with the Ballet "L" Exquizeetf' lt's enough
to kill anybody.
From the extreme to the sublime as a fair damsel, lune
Doe by name, sings "Only Forever" and really makes one
believe those words. And what could be more fitting in this
day than the patriotic finale that closed the show?
But that's not alll Oh no, not by a long shot. We've still
got all the concessions to see. The fish pond, the turkey raffle,
Library Club games, Girls Club balloon race, fun, fun, fun,
and more fun! And the Water 'Carnival would have been a
success by itself. Then dancing to the melodious strains of
Iohnny Kay and his orchestra and finally the crowning of the
King and Queen of the Carnival of l940, Ellen McKenna and
Donald Koehnl The greatest show on earth? You bet! Not
only was it the best show as far as entertainment goes, but
just feast your eyes on the Carnival financial report below,
and you'll come to the conclusion that it was the best show

stronger teams in the Chicago City league. But all doubt as to
the strength of the Meteors vanished when they crushed their
non-league opponents by a 25-8 score.
Next on the list was Hammond Tech. The Tigers were easy
Victims of the Meteors in l9'39 so perhaps last season's Frac-
tional team was a little over-confident, for the Hammond outfit
upset the Purple and Gold to the tune of 7 to 6 on the Hammond
High field. lt was the Meteors' only loss of the season.
Y The team traveled to Kankakee on September 27 and defi-
nitely announced its championship intentions by copping a 26-7
victory from the Kays.
The Meteors were top-heavy favorites to beat Blue lsland
when the two teams met on Fractional field but the lslanders
forced our boys to go the limit in gaining the 6-U decision for
T. F.'s second conference victory. The champs showed great de-
fensive play in holding the Mound City boys to a net rushing
gain of four yards.
Revenge-seeking Thornton of Harvey came to town the next
week and against this eleven the Petreemen played their best
CALL OUT THE RESERVES
game of the season, winning by a 14-7 reading. Our ancient
rival was the Victim of long runs with intercepted passes which
caused its downfall.
After two weeks' rest Fractional faced its greatest test--
that of meeting Bloom. The 1939 title-holders were slated to re-
peat for the crown and rightfully so, what with eight regulars
of the championship team returning. But, although handicapped
by having to play on the opponents field, the Meteors played
stellar ball and earned a 6-6 tie with their more experienced
and stronger rival.
The roaring Meteors virtually clinched the South Suburban
league title on November 2 when they defeated the, until then
unbeaten and untied, Argo eleven by a l3 to 6 count. This vic-
tory gave the Petreemen undisputed possession of first place.
The Purple and Gold copped the coveted crown on Novem-
ber 8 when they handed Lockport a 37-6 shellacking in a con-
test that was sparked by the play of the Fractional reserves.
Fractional completed its schedule by playing a O-U tie with
Catholic Central of Hammond. The Meteors, relieved of confer-
ence-game pressure, let up a bit and thus had to be content in
playing an even ball game.
AFTER CHAMPIONSHIP LOCKPCRT CAME
IOE HILL-"Ierry" was the pass-catching genius of the team. He also played a fine defen-
sive game at LEFT END. Hill will be a three year man next season. HENRY BOBAK--
"Hank," the red head, was one of the stalwarts in the line and worked his LEFT TACKLE
position to perfection. His greatest thrill was scoring a touchdown on an 85 yard run with
a pass interception against Lockport. BERNARD NONDORF-"Ben," captain of the champs,
was outstanding in line play. He was chosen all-league LEFT GUARD. Played his best
game against Wallenberg and Weishaar of Bloom, each 225 pounders. IOHN PADIEN-"Bull,"
Padjen No. 3 of T. F. gridiron fame, is an excellent CENTER who will be back next year
as co-captain. Broke up many a play. He stood out in the Harvey game. ARCHIE ROSS
-"All-American," always anxious to play in the backfield, was needed more at RIGHT
GUARD. He likes body contact. Only a junior, he'll play next season, too. He wants to
make a score. ROBERT LONG-"Bud" found himself after two or three games and really
played great ball as the season progressed. At RIGHT TACKLE he exhibited fine defensive
play and really starred in the Harvey game. EDWARD LITZAN-"Eddie" was a great team
player. He was heady and could diagnose plays with great skill. An uncertain insertion at
RIGHT END at the beginning of the season, he proved he had what it takes. DONALD
KOEI'IN+"Sugar" was one of the greatest field generals in Fractional's history. He took
advantage of every opportunity. He held the team together. All-league QUARTER BACK
selection. The diminutive' speedster took a terrific beating but displayed great sportsman-
ship at all times. Great runner. Scored on many a long run. IOHN SCHUTZ-"Schutz" was
a coming star at LEFT HALF when he was laid low with appendicitis. The best man on the
field in the Meteor-Tech battle. Against Amundsen he ran 71 yards for a score. Schutz was
COACH WILBUR PETREE
a hard fighter and a terrific tackler. DOMINICK VITALE-"Dorn" was the
SUBSTITUTES WAIT FOR A SCORE
cialist of the title team. He'll be co-captain with Padjen next
fall. Though the RIGHTHALF doesn't carry the ball in the
Petree system Vitale reminded one of the main cogs in the of-
fensive machine by cutting down the opponent's secondary.
WII.LIAM DeCAMP-"Bill" was a powerful plunger and an all-
around player. He was an expert passer and backed up the
line with keen ability. His FULLBACK post was the natural
spot for the big junior. Best in the KKK and Argo contests.
COLOGER MONESTERE-"Stoney" was a reserve tackle who
could always be depended upon to fill in and stop plays.
RICHARD NORDAKER-"Dick" played regular center on sev-
eral occasions and was a fine defensive lineman. IAMES
GIGLIO and STANLEY SONNENBERG-"lim" and "Stan"
must be mentioned in the same breath because they took
turns at Schutz's vacated left half spot. Giglio scored on a
neat run against Lockport, and Sonnenberg's 98 yard gallop
against Harvey will never be forgotten. ROOSEVELT SIDOTE
ee"Sidote" was a quiet ball player, but he didn't have to say
much, for his actions proved he had the makings of a good
lineman. Watch him next fall. EDWARD IABLONSKI-"Iabo"
was the team's utility backfield man in that he could and did
play each of the four positions. Starred at fullback against
Argo. MATTHEW AUGUSTYNEK-"Micky" was a watch
charm guard who was fearless in mid-line play. Though
small in stature he was able to stop big fullbacks when they
came his way. THOMAS SHAFFER-"Tom," rewarded by his
hard work at left end, started several battles. A good tackler,
Shaffer will develop into a fine ball player by next season.
LEWIS GALIK-"Lew" is a dandy pass receiver and his height
will be an asset to the tossing attack of the coming season's
team. He caught a nice buck throw for a score against Lock-
port. PHILLIP ADI-XMKIEWICZw"Adam" was really a good
MANAGER and was well liked by all of the players. He looked
after the boys as if they were his brothers. He always had
everything under control as far as his duties were concerned.

YCLJTH TRAINS PCR FUTURE VICTCRIES
With eyes to the future Coach Young gathered together a group of twenty-five boys early in No-
vember, l94O, in preparation for the on-coming basketball season. Cf this group only two players were
seniors, while ten were juniors, one was a sophomore, and another was a freshman. Not one of the twenty-
tive was a varsity letterman.
With this comparatively green squad to Work with, the Coach knew he couldn't, in a period of
three months, build a team of championship calibre. But the Meteors played a fine btand of ball through-
out the season and at times, as for example, during the regional tournament, showed surprising form in de-
feating teams of noted ability which were supposed to have no trouble in disposing of the Fractional quintet.
Fractional's first encounter in the Chicago Heights regional meet was marked by an impressive
victory over Manteno. The Youngmen then upset Bloom, but lost to loliet in the final. Being a regional final-
ist entitled T. F. to play in the sectional tourney at Waukegan where the Meteors lost to Morton of Cicero,
who went on to win the state title.
The Youngmen opened the season by losing a close one to Morgan Park. The next three games
marked sweet victories for the Purple and Gold as Blue lsland, George Rogers Clark, and Kankakee fell
But the win streak was short-lived, for in the next five contests the Meteors scored nary a victory.
Lockport, Argo, Tolleston, Bloom, and Mooseheart were conquerors of T. F.

EDWARD LITZAN4"Eddie," the captain of the team, was one of the best
players ever to wear the Purple and Gold, scoring over 200 points through-
out the season. HENRY BOBAK-"Hank" was a dependable floor guard who
could work the ball in with expert precision. He and Litzan were the only
seniors on the squad. LEWIS GALIKi"Lew" was the big center who came
through to make himself a fine pivot player in his junior year. ARCHIE
ROSS--"Slim" was a good ball handler and thrilled the fans by sinking his
unorthodox shots. TED PIETRZAKe"Teddy" entered at mid-year and gained
a position on the first team right away as a reward for his fine playing,
DOMINICK VITAI.Ef"Dom" was one of the best ball handlers on the team,
and his cool play held the quintet together during tense periods. SHER-
MAN STOLLY-"Sherm," the tall sophomore center, always played a fine
game especially in getting rebounds and controlling the ball. RUSSELL
BUHRINGe-"Russ" was a fast player and sparked the team no little with
his fighting attitude and driving play. CLARENCE MACIEIEWSKI'-e"Smiley"
was one of the jolliest managers in T. F.'s history and he was an ace
right-hand man to the Coach.
Other players who displayed good form when given a chance to play were
Francis Iones, Russell Lenhoff, Fred Slinkard, Wayne McMul1in, Tom Shaf-
fer, lim Giglio, Charles Cullum, and Michael Kieras.
In the next four league battles, the Youngmen split even, beating Blue
Island and Lockport, and losing to Kankakee and Harvey.
The team found central state competition to its liking when it traveled
to Gilman to soundly defeat the host school. But this win marked the last in
regular season play for the Meteor five as the four remaining games were lost
to Harvey, Argo, Bloom, and Mooseheart.
LIC!-ITS TRAIN FUR 1941-1942
Handicapped by the lack of experienced players Coach Kiester knew at the start of the 1940-
41 basketball season that the task of retaining the South Suburban hardwood title would be an
almost impossible one.
So, instead of concentrating on the title drive alone, he also gave thought to the seasons tc
come and, by doing this, he brought together a winning quintet which, with one or two exceptions
will be back next year with the hope of recapturing the crown for Fractional.
The lightweights started the season in grand style by winning their first four games. Morgan
Park, Blue Island, Clark, and Kankakee were laid low bythe small Kiesterites.
Lockport dealt T, F. its first league loss on the Porter court, but the Meteor Irs. got back on the

win trail by defeating their next five opponents. Crete was beaten twice and Argo, Tolleston, and
Bloom were the other victims.
Here the lights hit a snag and fell before Mooseheart, Blue Island, and Harvey. The next
week T. F. again triumphed over KKK and a week later gained revenge on Lockport.
I-Iarvey, co-champs with Blue Island, crushed the Kiestermen's title hopes but the boys licked
Bloom and Mooseheart captured the remaining seasonal tilts by close margins.
Entering the Blue Island invitational tournament as l94O champs Fractional received a set!
back in their first encounter, being eliminated by Blue Island.

TANKERS BREAK EVEN
The Meteor swim team enjoyed a good season during l940-
4l as they drowned seven and tied two of their sixteen oppo-
nents. Coach Kelly had but tour letterrnen returning from last
year's squad and he built the remainder of the team around
Those who gained swimming monograms this year were:
Robert Sausaman-"Bob" was chosen honorary captain by his
fellow tankers and really showed his stroking ability at all times.
ORVAL MEYER--"Orv" swam the 220 free style and added many a point to
the Meteors' total. IAMES ANDERSON-"lim" was the team's regular diver as
well as being the squad's record-breaking breast-stroker. Placed 7th in 100 yd.
breast stroke in lll. state swim meet. THOMAS FELSECKER--"Tom" was the
number two diver and will take Anderson's place come next season. RUDOLPH
BUCKNER-"Rudy" free-styled and was on the relay teams and always swam
a good race. LUCIEN TRIMBUR-"Trimbur" was also a free-styler and will be
back next season to add to his laurels. WILLIAM ARCHER4"Bill" was undoubt-
edly the fastest stroker on the squad and was good for points in every meet.
HERMAN MOORE--"Herman" was aided in his free style races by a person
named Lucy who cheered him on to victory. MYROSLOW PURKO4"Purko"
was always a hard worker and never missed a night of practice. RICHARD
EBY-"Dick" will be back to fill Anderson's trunks in the breast stroke event
when next season comes. MERVIN KEDROWSKI-"Marv's" experience as a life
guard during the summer helped him to earn points. HAROLD IENNINGS-
"Jennings" was one manager that Coach Kelly would like to keep as a "steady."
With the loss ot six regulars ot the 1939-40
wrestling squad the grapplers were greatly
handicapped. Coach Potts had a group of boys
who had in spirit what they lacked in brawn.
The ten losses ot the season do not tell the
entire story, tor the boys were always scrap-
ping and giving their best.
Lettermen who earned their share oi points
RAYMOND KMAK---"Ray" was high-point man of the
squad and was elected honorary captain by his team-
mates. IACK SOLOMON--"lack" was the small boy of
the team, but could always be depended on for a good
showing. PHILLIP ADAMKIEWICZ--"Phillip" went out for
wrestling so he would be able to handle the football team
next tall. IOHN VEZMAR-"Iohnny" was a small boy
with plenty of the old spirit. LEO HODUR-"Leo" showed
his stuff on the mat and earned enough points for his
monogram. MATTHEW AUGUSTYNEK--"Mickey" Went out
and tamed his Wild opponcnts. BEN NONDORF--"Ben"
graduated in February but contributed his points. WAL-
LACE COSGROVE -"Horse" was the biggest boy on the
squad and went out to die for dear old Ireland in every
match. LEO SMITH--"Leo" was a fine and dependable

CJRLS ENJCDY GCOD YEAR
Golly, another year gone. I can't understand where the
time goes. Why it doesn't seem like more than a month ago
when we were playing volleyball. There were ninety of us then.
1'11 never forget that tournament. The seniors had a tough
time nosing out the juniors for the championship. The score
was 35 to 30. With Berger and Heimbuch in there slugging
away at the ball the seniors had a deuce of a time.
Even the frosh had a good team. Lila Mae Winterhoff
made so many practically impossible returns that she was
placed on the volleyball varsity. And that's plenty good for
Then came captain basketball. leepers, that was fun. That
tournament was the upset of the year. The juniors plowed right

Becker made a total

Gee whiz, those tournament games were terrific! The sophomore team certainly was a
surprise outfit. The first night they tied the seniors. After two overtimes the game was played
over. Then in the juniors' first game, against the freshmen, Nelda Berger sprained her ankle.
That put her out for the rest of the season. Then when the sophomores played the downcast
juniors, the surprise soph team, with Abby Abblett and leanette Klein sinking baskets right and
left, broke through to win by a score of 14 to 9. Well, that messed it all up for the juniors. Then
the next night the sophomores and seniors tangled again. Something must have happened to
the senior team because it played as it had never played before. Leona Kowalski made 11
of the 17 points scored against the sophomores. Then came the junior-senior game. The seniors
knew they had to win this game if they wanted to have their names printed on the cup given
at the end of the year. Well, Anne Soczyk with her 15 points made sure the seniors would win.
And they did, 29 to 18. lt was a great day for the seniors.
The high-point "men" of the tournament were Soczyk with 25 points, Kowalski, with 23
points and Becker with 20 points. On the soph team Abblett and Klein each made 19 points.
Then there were those G.A.C. meetings. They were a lot of fun. We would come into
Boom 121 and Dorothy Becker, recording secretary, would pass out tickets on which we wrote
our names. Then the meeting would be called to order.

Then We had a very successful Water
carnival in May. The stands were
packed. We gave them a show worth
seeing! Elizabeth I-Iesselbarth, presi-
dent ot Terrapin club, was Tarzan
and Lillian Horst was Tarzette. They
sure were cute.
Kay Bertram and Virginia Fedosky
were "octopusseses" with long ten-
tacles reaching out, grasping every-
thing Within reach. It sure was a
swell show for only l5c.
Our meetings were almost as short
as the G.A.C. meetings. Peany would
call the meeting to order and imme-
diately call on Abby Abblett, the
Secretary-Treasurer to call the roll,
read the minutes and give the trea-
surer's report. Then We would dis-
cuss our splash party and banquet.

Helen Ernst would call on the secretary for the minutes and
then on the treasurer tor her report. Next she would say, "Any
old business?" 6 No answer. "Any new business?" -Q Still
no answer. "The meeting is adjourned!"
We all flocked out ot the rcom with our noses in our Thorn-
tonians, ready to dress tor practice.
There were tour outstanding seniors this year, too. They were
the only ones to get major letters. The lucky "gals" were Helen
Ernst, president, Dorothy Becker, recording secretary, Leona Ko-
walski, secretary, and Anne Soczyk.
Miss Iaacks pulled a fast one on us this year at the initia-
tion party. She awarded minor letters to four juniors, Nelda
Berger, Virginia Fedosky, Harriet Drabek, and Nora l-leimbuch.
Then we had the G. A. C. banquet in the -latter part ot May.
There were a lot ot alumnae present. That successful party
wound up a perfect yeaij with G. A. C.

IT'S NOT FOR SISSIES
by Gladys Leedy
Resolved: That debating is a
perilous activity. First, there
are two terms that merit defin-
ition. By debating we refer to
the high school activity coached
by Mr. Allen, which teaches
the art of systematized argu-
ment. By perilous we mean
both dangerous and unsafe.
At this time we will present
the two points on which we
base our case: "Every plat-
form appearance is a trial,"
and the dangers of traveling
Now let us look more closely
at our first point. Every plat-
form appearance is a trial. I
could cite many authorities on
this subject but I choose to
quote only two. Wilfred Krae-
gel, well known varsity debat-
er, tells of the humiliation of
losing his voice on the plat-
form and the scolding he re-
ceived from his colleague for
being so careless. I also
quote Elossie Lynn, who is still
nursing the wounds received
from the burning glances of the
Hammond I-Iigh male debat-
ers, when she said, "It ain't
safe, that's all." I am sure
that I have proved my point,
that a debate platform is not
a healthy place to be.
Secondly, the journeys made
by the debaters are no less
hazardous. I need only bring
to your attention the trip to
Augustana College in Rock Is-
land, Illinois. After surviving

all difficulties in getting on
their way, Mr. Allen, accom-
panied by the affirmative spent
many anxious minutes in a
stalled car Waiting for Mr. Da-
vis and the negative to catch
up. Then followed the none-
too-pleasant tow to the next
gasoline station, where Mr.
Allen, sprang from his car and
tore the leg half out of his
trousers on a piece of wire.
Precious time was wasted but
not peacefully because little
Mr. Davis succeeded in floor-
ing such big boys as Albert
Wahlgren and Edgar Thedens
in a iiu-jitsu contest.
On their Way again, fate was
with them. They arrived at
Rock Island a little after mid-
night. On second thought, fate
Wasn't With them: they had to
stay at the hotelwith elevators,

thing. Why it Wasn't even

erman, for Billy Gibbons kicked

This trip was indeed danger-
ous but it was child's play
compared to the ride down to
La Porte, Indiana. That was
on the day after a terrific snow
storm and it was all one could
do to keep the car on the road.
I could go on and on pre-
senting such information but
you undoubtedly agree with
me by this time that debating
is a perilous activity.

A WART ON HIS NOSE
by Kay Bertram
This is Cicero, your favorite
Latin writer, talking to you from
the grave, through the courtesy
of the CI-IRONOSCOPE. lupi-
ter! What a name I have! In
the first place it means wart
and because one of my ances-
tors had a wart on his nose
they had to stick the name on
the whole family. And now I
hear that fancy Latin teachers,
lupiter forgive them, have de-
cided it should be pronounced
I'm not complaining, but the
way some modern Latin stu-V
dents translate my oration a-
gainst Cataline is a crime. I
pass over this thing as unim-
portant. But-students misin-
terpret half of what I Wrote.
By their transactions I often
Wonder Whether it was Cata-
line or I who was on trial.
They go too far, though, when
they begin to compare that ly-
ing fellow with their modern
criminals. By Mars, he had
a slicker idea than any of them,
and it took me to trap him.
Oh Well! I should worry,
they really have to slave to
get that much sense out of any
of my orations. Guess I'll sign
This is Marcus Tullius Cicero

ODE TO A FORSAKEN
Oh, thou, who art best friend
Who roamest through the halls
Where e'er you can,
Whose sad and lonely eyes
look up in mute appeal
At some kind-hearted student
Who, perhaps, wilt give to
thee a meal.
But oh-the tragedy of it all
If whilst roaming through these
CA teacher should espy and
quickly seize, I

With salad and French tries

Blessings upon thy firm and
CPheW! how you smell

by Tom Shaffer
It I could change the elements
These wintry blasts would
come to blow no more,
To treeze our trees and shut
us in our door,
And keep us hovering around
From early tall till spring has
I'd rule ole Sol's warm beams
because each day, I know
There'd be no rain, no wind,
no storms, or snow,
To make this all too short a
life on earth,
Two seasons of each year, a
glorious field of green,
Or trees full leated, and lilting
songs of birds ,
I'd stop all time, there'd be no
To spend in 'pleasant hours of
thought and dream,
Of every living moment all too
grand for words.

Remember when We always
used to see
The Ford with roof so high and
tire so small
And Pa would use the crank
in case we stalled?
Ah, yesl Those mem'ries are
so dear to me!
And all those times Pa would
misplace the key,
And in the search We all Would
shout and call,
And Ma would find it in Pa's
And then We'd all pile in and
laugh and be
Glad that We all were now
upon our Way
To see the wonders of the
Where we would eat -and
laugh and play all day,
And all the boys would try to
sneak otf Where
The side shows showed the

And then We'd all go home
glad to be there?
