But I did make the Honor Roll every time. And the iunior play. "Imag- inary Invalid," was so good that I sat speltbound throughout the performance.

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- man classes. "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 more Tournaments. "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.

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. KING AND QUEEN OF THE CARNIVALeEllen McKenna, Donald Koehn ' Ellen McKenna, who thrills hearts of boys at T. F., the friend of every girl, a good student and a loyal sports follower, was elected to be Queen of the Carnival. , Donald Koehn, an ace football player, a brilliant scholar, the top' sales! man, the ideal of the underclassmen, got the well-deserved title of King of the Carnival. 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. Davis. 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 the Nationals. 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 TO FAME 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 Contest. 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. - Page Forty-one :sa.,z:z, ' .f 2 x .,.-f .:. , MN. 79'- vn ,XX ffggwsf' gb 'au . ,film M-we Mmm "ini" f Q i I x I J f Y X -.am , wr :ig A-X7 2,5 S wg: A X. was' jf 'Nw S sp., H, ,i- F,-...A .f--Q FRESHMEN- SOPHOMORE DEBATERS "TA 'T ' LEFT TOP lgoing up? lst row: Mary Alice Carroll, Richard Sikorski. 2nd row: Eileen Nichter, Cathleen Callahan, Vera Reynolds. 3rd row: Myrle Lee Laurance, Delores Rzepczyn- ski, Dona Peeples. 4th row: Pat Willis, Margie Novak, Alice Heckman, Erma Ault.

Tickets for the Big and Little Sister Party-only one nickel, and tickets for our first football game against Amundsen-just 20c. There you have a chance to see our football team in action, dressed in new uniforms, ready to launch a spectacular season. How about a pretty red ticket for the Hammond Tech game? We will play under the Hammond High lights and we surely want a crowd to see the Tech Tigers try to break a 29 game losing streak.eAnd you-oh, such, pretty blue eyes-for only 25c you can purchase the most beautiful blue ticket you have ever seen, and that ticket will get you by the ticket taker for the Carnival stage show. That is going to be a real show too. With Mr. McPhail directing and Miss Shemaitis assisting, how could that show be anything but good?

Donald was the high ticket salesman this year this first year out, by the wayl by selling l,l02 tickets while leanne, in her 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 football games. 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. I if E I N ,K t lf lg kai lv-Ll' I 4 I 7 I ILeft topl.

F.'s largest organization, the Boys' Club, proved itself well worth belonging to during the past year. Under the leadership of three officers and ten representatives elected from the boys of the student body, this organi- zation has completed one of its most ac- tive years. The date of the first event sponsored by the Boys' Club was September 25, when a party was given for the incoming freshman boys. The frosh were welcomed by Mr. Leonard, club sponsor and dean of boys, and then they were treated to a thrilling motion picture and refreshments. On November 29 at the annual Carnival the Boys' Club was once again active in bringing in the dollars and walked away with the second prize for bringing in the largest profit. The Boys' and Girls' Clubs jointly spon- sored a roller skating party on March l7 which was attended by approximately 300 students. Mr. C. l. Albrecht, adventurer, explorer, and curator for the Field Museum of Chi- cago headlined the program for the Father and Sons' Party held cn March 28. He lec- tured on Ethiopia and showed both colored slides and motion pictures on the subject. Also on the program were several intra- mural boxing matches and pie and ice cream were served in the band room. The main social activity of the year took the form of the annual Boys' Club dance. lt was held on April 28 in a tropical setting to the tropical strains of Morellie's Melodeer.

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- eral papers. 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- fx 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 breath-don't think 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.

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 beautiful daughter.

' ll ll 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 arnuses him!" 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!

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 XX- X X ,wan- K 93.4, ff' Q .gg '5 fo, Q Q, sr 54 if B?" 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.

From the extreme to the sublime as a fair damsel, lune l Pa ge Sixty-seven il E s Mn ll 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?

A , f' '-gg. 3 5: A , 541 of the contest were lacking, due to the fact that not much was known of the Big City aggregation, except that it was one of the 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 blocking spe- 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 Page Seventy-three 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 victims. 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 LICHTWEICHT BASKETBALL 1940-1941 Top Row: I. Morgan, Mgr., E. Kuhlman, A. Ollrich, I. Cipolla, E.

FRESHMEN BASKETBALL 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 Argo handily. 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. 1940-1941 D bowski. Slinkard, C. Gulotta, G.

Coach Kelly had but tour letterrnen returning from last year's squad and he built the remainder of the team around these boys. 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." WRESTLERS SHOW CCCD MORALE 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 were: 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 manager. WRESTLING t94O-I94I i Top Row: Coach Henry Potts, W. Cosgrove, G. Van Der Aa, M. Van Drunen, H. Lucas, M. Augustynelc. Bottom Bow: L.

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 a freshman. Then came captain basketball. leepers, that was fun. That tournament was the upset of the year. The juniors plowed right through the seniors to take the championship by a score of 35 to 23. There was 'a lot of spirit in that gameewhat with Dorothy Becker and Virginia Fedosky. GIRLS WITH MAJOR LETTERS Se ated: Anne Soczyk.

BGARD Going Up: Helen Ernst, Leona Kowalski, Dorothy Becker, Nora Heimbuch, Nellie Swieringa, Virginia Fedosky, Dorothy Carrubba, Lillian Hudzik, leanette Klein, Harriet Drabek, Miss laacks. Becker made a total of 20 points in the tournament and Fedosky made 13 points. They were the high scorers on their teams. 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. ytll f VOLLEYBALL 6 CHAMPS ,485 X N1-ER RIGHT. 'It Was a great year for the Terra- ? d L B pm members.

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. Nothing else to talk about so we would adjourn and then jump into the pool.

Q . 'M " .. ,S 4 A 1 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 are tremendous. 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.

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, slippery tile floors and every- thing. Why it Wasn't even safe in bed. lust ask Bob Bied- erman, for Billy Gibbons kicked him out onto that cold, slippery floor! 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.

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 Kickerol 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 off now. This is Marcus Tullius Cicero turning over in his grave.
