It was a wonderful year and a terrible year. For although we still hear the laughter and songs of America's youth, a new note is added. It's the click of knitting needles keeping time to the strains of "Remember Pearl Harbor." For America is at war and so is America's youth. But with a heart full of love and laughter, America's youth can and will meet and overcome even an obstacle as great as this. So with the greatest of admiration, we dedi- cate this l942 CHRONOSCOPE to America's youth who must take it on the chin and meet the world with a smile on its lips and a song in its heart. , Iames Leonard Anna V.

D f B tan mg, rances ogas 1, erm 0 Cys File Clerk Office Secretaries At typewriter: Mar- garet Klucker At file: Dora Harthun l nie- ' Ulf.fh.a,fZemJwL There are many interesting things we students and friends of T. F. don't know about our fa- culty. We'll tell you a few-but remember, it's strictly "Off The Record." Did you know thati Miss Helen Brazzill has a lovely soprano voice which we should all like to hear a lot more of . . . Miss Katherine Brazzill is quite the expert in selecting choice pieces of glassware and is studying advanced chemistry on the side . . . Mrs. Ruth Hale Canaga is of the famous Hale family of which Nathan Hale was a member. If he weren't so busy with speech and debate, Mr. Earl Davis might very well coach athletics, being well qualified. There is hardly a new book which Miss Iosephine Dempkowski hasn't read. When in high school, she was voted most studious . . . We have on our faculty one man who is able to read Greek-Mr. Raymond Elvin studied it in college . . . Our very scientific Mr. Samuel Frey also swings a mean hammer and saw. He remodeled an old home into a beautiful modern-day abode . . . Miss Adeline Iaacks is an ardent stage play addict-she sees them all! Golf is another pastime of hers . . . Mr. Lester Kelly received his letter at the University of Illinois and he not only teaches health and athletics, but he practices what he teaches . . . And, surprise--our charming Miss Anna Schmidt can whistle with the best of 'eml She's almost as good as Elmo Tanner. Needle work is another of her accomplishments . . . Miss Mary Shemaitis takes dancing lessons regularly, has a champion diver for a sister, and has twin brothers . . . We have a composer with us-Mr. Franklyn Kingdon is composing a symphony . . . Mr. Harvey Lambka, our Latin teacher, is a collector of all sorts of plants and flowers-his main interest, though, lies in the various cacti plants-asticky subject, we'd say! Our handsome Mr. Aitken Young not only can make the frosh girls' hearts beat double time, he can also knit double time! Has a good voice, too . . . Although he's not at all corny, Mr. Iackson Kiester takes a great interest in crossing different brands of corn to see what he can get. . . And, as would be expected, Miss Fanchon Remund, our librarian, is an authority on books-she doesn't miss one! Miss Clara Ihrig was once a counselor at a girl's camp. And is also an excellent ice skater. Beauty must run in the McBrair family. Her sisters are just as pretty as she is. She also has a brother in service . . . Our quiet Mr. Arthur Smith was once associated with the University of Illinois Placement De' partment. He knows many of the outstanding athletes from Illinois. Our well-known athletic coach, Mr. Wilbur Petree, also has more than ordinary talents as a uwoodchopperf' We hear from reliable sources that he could throw a book case or cupboard togeth- er in no time... 1 . Mr. Iames H. Leonard not only teaches his interesting American Problems classes, but he can practice law on the side any time he has a mind to. Miss Lucille Slocum has been collecting rings for a long time now. The Library Club once had the pleasure of seeing some of her interesting specimens . . . Miss Elizabeth Kessinger knows all the tricks of big politics. She should, because once upon a time she was secretary to a "big-time" politician in Springfield. . . And, among our interesting faculty, we have a man who was awarded the Purple Heart for courage in World War I-Mr. Fritz Nelson . . . Imagine going to forty-eight different high schools! Well, Miss Virginia Martin did just that. Her papa is a chemist and was transferred frequently, so Miss Martin went too . . . Small, sweet Miss Helen Temple always looks so nice. And the reason? She designs and makes her own clothes. . . The Thornton Fractional Township H. S. Faculty Row 1: Bruce Miller, Helen Brazzill, Wilbur Petree, Sigrid Moe, Lester Kelly, Iosephine Dempkowski. Row 2: Mary McBrair, Raymond Elvin, Lucille Slocum, Harold Christian, Anna Schmidt, Iackson Kiester, Clara Ihrig. Row 3: Henry Legg, Mary Shemaitis, Earl Davis, Mrs. Ruth Hale Canaga, Iames Leonard, Helen Temple, Wilfred Stock. Row 4: Lawrence Luce, Fanchon Remund, HarveyLambka, Clarence Koedyker, Adeline Iaacks, Henry Potts, Ruth Etter. Row 5: Fritz Nelson, Arthur Smith, Aitken Young, Franklyn Kingdon, Elizabeth Kessinger, Samuel Frey. Not in picture: Katherine Brazzill, Virginia Martin. Mr. Clarence Koedyker is one man who can truly say, "This is my houselv He built his own home all by himself . . . They say men are just grown up little boys fnot entirely grown upj. We kind of wonder at Mr. Lawrence Luce. He owns one of the most elaborate electric train outfits around these parts . . . Miss Sigrid Moe, our very busy sponsor of publications, is especially surprising. She not only looks enthusiastic about the students, efforts, she actually is . . . Surprise! Reserved, business-like Mr. Henry Legg was once a traveling salesman. He sold en- gravings for high school year books . . . Mr. Bruce Miller worked his way through college. And little would we guess what he did. No, he washed dishes . . . Another ambitious man was Mr. Henry Potts. He also "washed his Way through college" Only he had an advantage-it was in a sorority house. . . Miss Margaret Etter gained much of her experience in cafeteria management and menu arrange- ment in hotels. She was a waitress and worked up .... Every job under the sun was held by Mr. Stock during the years he worked his way through college. And, finally, did you know that Mr. Harold Christian rides to school every morning on his sturdy bicycle? Little did you think that we had such a very human, likeable faculty. They have to be kind of ucrabbyi' now and then, but, honestly, they're swell! fi It's on the record-no, that isn't a mistake. We meant to say "on" the record instead of "off" the record. Why? Because this senior class is on the record as being one of the most outstanding ever to graduate from Thornton Fractional. Welre on record as having two members of our class co-captaining a championship football team. We're on record as having a senior edit the first magazine F.

It may be that what l'm going to tell you should not be told. It is not the usual gushy, "What-a- super-colossal-stupendous production" stuff. It's fact, though. The 1942 Senior Class Play just didn't start out right! The cast Wasn't especially cooperative at the start, rumors were circulating that the play was lousy, and, in general, the outlook must have been dreary for Mr. Kingdonl One night the cast finally received a much needed talking to and that start- ed the ball rolling! The play was a smash-hit and everyone was pleased. Mr. Kingdon exercised much patience and tact-which the cast appreciated after all was said and done. Such things as screaming at the right pitch, walking correctly, keeping in character, are the basis of a good play. Some people say they are ujust detaill'-they arel But, what detail! Bob Rentner practically "took" the play with his characterization of Alec, the farm boy. His "Clem" effect was hilarious. Doris Follick did a first place job of Poppy, the maid. Marilyn Crane was tops as the young, romance-stricken girl. All in all, the characters portrayed their parts with more than average ability. Although "Don't Darken My Doorn looked pretty "dark" in the beginning it came out in the lead on April 24, 1942. And why? Because Mr. Kingdon is T. Ffs own "Miracle Manll' IUNIOR PLAY LEADS Howard Barker, Abby Abblett '11, Klan, 911, the Hfzonvn, The Iunior Class is solid, in the groove, really hepl! We've just been playing back the record they made this past year and it's music to our ears!! They're not destructive by nature, but they shattered existing attendance records for the Iunior Class Play on March 11 into a thousand bits. Play- ing to a capacity audience, "june Mad," a light comedy involving teen-aged characters, brought in large enough receipts to guarantee a really super Iunior-Senior Prom. Clara Ihrig and Marian McBrair were the co-directors. And the Class Officers for '42 and this year's Iunior Council introduced a revolutionary idea- buying class rings or pins in the third, instead of in the last year. And the idea caught on so well that hereafter it may be a general practice. On the whole, we just can't think of a better class to take over the places of the present seniors -than we juniors!! In the pages that follow each junior will reveal his pet nickname and his favorite band and pop- ular song.

Its fine record started rolling on September 9 when, at the first board meeting, they planned the Big Little Sister Party in charge of Lillian Horst, made an announcement of the first tea on September 17, and appointed committees for the Girls, Club Dance. Outsiders were permitted to come to the dance this year for the first time and Phyllis Nordaker, chairman of the dance, was happy to see the record breaking number of 140 couples attend the Mexican Fiesta.

Standing-Rita Strand, Defense Stampsg Alma Sausaman, Refreshments: Lillian Horst, Big and Little Sisters: Sophie Sarros, Community Service. Not in picture: Jo Ann Clark, Candy Sales: Ade- laide Miller, Publicity: Betty Ann Rappe, Assemblies. Sophie Sarros, who was in charge of community service, took care of Christmas seals, and the filling of Thanksgiving baskets. V-I-C-T-O-R-Y was the cry of the girls under Peany Hesselbarth who worked hard at their defense social to make enough money to help purchase a 375.00 War Bond. Later the club promoted the sale of defense stamps, going all out for National Defense. So the calendar is brought up to date and the Hallowe'en party, the Alumni party, the teas, the Boys' and Girls' Club Skating party, the Senior breakfast, Bow-day are things of the past. One more important date is left, the Mother-Daughter Party on May 1. The guest speaker, Miss Smithies, was from University High, the University of Chicago. T. F. pins were awarded and a cup for the most active girl was presented. Then came the installation of new board members and the revealing of the new Girls' Club president. If the next year is as successful as this one, there won't be any need to make a rec- ord because it will all be broken anyway. SENIOR GIRLS WITH T. F.

One of the first events given by the club was the welcoming party on September 24 for the freshmen boys. At Thanksgiving the Boys' Club helped the Girls Club in the filling and distributing of baskets on November 19. On March 13 the boys entertained their fathers at the Father-Son Party, where a swell program was presented and refrshments were served. Next was the Boys' Club-Girls' Club Roller Skating Party given at the Palace Roller Rink on March 23. The last event on the social calender was the Boys' Club Dance on April 17, having a most appropriate theme, for the decorations centered around the idea of "Blackout," Tables around the dance floor were lighted with candles in bottlesg signs read "Bomb Shelterf' there were sand bags and a realistic entrance to air raid shelters. The programs were in the shape of a bomb. The music was provided by Reynold Yonug and his orchestra. It was the first year that outsiders were allowed at a Boys' Club Dance and a record breaking crowd attended. The year's activity list was lastly filled with gifts of clothing to needy boys in the school. Morale Squad The Bomb Shelter 94 jun, Smiling up at you, you wouldn't dream of the clocklike ma- chinery that whirs and buzzes in the head of Miss Iaacks, a record in herself with as sweet a story as you'd ever like to hear. "Why," she exclaimed, "thousands and thousands and thou- sands of dollars go through room 221 every year, and this year is the best year we've ever had." When I asked her what TICKETS have that "get" her she peeped up at me and just said, "lt's fun". She claims that she can't sell anything herself but likes to hound other people, bawl them out, and tell them to bring her some money. And they do. A reliable crew of fifteen is what does the ticket selling and the arduous process involved in stamping the ticktes. From sea- son to season starting in September, the same ones sell, making themselves known and knowing others. The strategy of good ticket sellers is to "dog" the very foot- steps of the Hvictiml' but still be so pleasant that he doesn't realize that there is such a calculating hound at his heels. Good advice for this type of a pastime, says Miss Iaacks, is to start at the beginning of the year and to continuously sell anything and everything. What is derived from this gruelling work? A sense of accur- acy and responsiblity is the answer. You will develop a pleasing personality, enlarge your circle of friends, lose that shyness and be able to approach anyone in an easy manner. If you like to "get around" just sell tickets. It's fun! MAGAZINE SALESMEN Back: Miss Jaacks, John Duda, Jim Swendsen, Bob Gralik.

The only difference is that it takes two weeks to play that thing called "THORNTONIAN" and the record never changes. We can compare it to a symphony-divide it up onto movements. The first movement consists of a thing called an assignment sheet, which lists all the articles that will go into the next issue of the THORNTONIAN. The name of the reporter, the length of the article, and the date on which it is due are down there too. Each of these as- signments is copied on a slip of paper and given to the reporter. He writes the article and turns it in to the editor who checks it off on his list. The second movement begins with typing all the articles and send- ing them out to the printer. The typed articles had to be copyread, that is they must be corrected for spelling, punctuation, and factual accuracy by at least three people. Then headlines must be written on each piece of news and the size of type, width of the printed column, and general makeup of each piece indicated. This movement concludes with the delivery of the finished copy to the printer. A few days later the third movement begins. In the meantime type has been set up in the print shop and two sets of proof have been print- ed. These are delivered to the editorial staff together with the original typed copy. One set of proof is carefully read over and all the errors are corrected. The other set is cut up into separate articles and pasted on a dummy, which is a sheet of paper the size of a printed THORNTON- IAN. The corrected proof and the dummy are once more sent to the printer and after making the indicated corrections he puts the paper together as it is on the dummy-sheet. Our symphony ends on a joyful note when the printed papers are folded and made ready for delivery to the eager student body. Then the long awaited climax is reached. Do they like it? Is this latest per- formance of "Thornto'1ian" a success? Does our symphony meet with the approval of the audience? There is only one trouble. Tomorrow the whole thing has to start over again-just like a juke box with only one record. Il Il H ' M, Another milestone in the history of Fractional is the new maga- zine, TEEN, which was received with enthusiasm when it made its appearance on May 1. The search for T.F. talent was not in vain, as all sorts of ingenuity and cleverness were uncovered by the English Teachers in their classes. Miss Ihrig, Mr. Davis, Miss McBrair, Miss Helen Brazzill, Miss Demp- kowski, Miss Iaacks, Miss Remund, and Miss Kessinger collected most of the material and much credit is due them for their help in getting subscriptions. In the 34 pages were crammed 55 stories, and out of the 41 contest- ants these winners were judged by Mrs. Earl Davis as having the most original and interesting contributions. Short stories-Marilou Carroll. Essays-Albert Wahlgren. Poetry-Leonard Lute. Sponsors of the magazine are Miss Moe and Miss Iaacks. Everyone is interested in making this magazine an annual publication.

However, their dance was soon broken up by Albert Wahlgren, who came running in to carry out the story which concerned a vaudeville troupe stranded on a South Sea Island. As another boat was not expected for some time, the troupe decided to put on a little en- tertainment for the islanders and also to be entertained by the islanders, who at the com- mand of their chief, Edgar Thedens, consented to help pass the time by providing some native songs and dances. Betty Ann Rappe an Englishwoman comes into the scene and continues to pester the "chiefy" throughout the show.

Yes sir, with ten lettermen to build around, Coach Petree did it again! After a shaky start, the Meteors regained their characteristic fighting spir- it to be one of the finest teams in the district in capturing the coveted crown of the South Suburban Conference for the fifth time in the last seven years. In booking only the most reputable outfits of the area, Coach Petree guided the Calumet City team to 6 wins, 2 losses, and one tie. It was the toughest 'schedule in the history of the school. During the 1941 season the light, but hard charging Meteors compiled one of the best defensive records of any Illinois high school. Against eight state prep elevens, the "stateliners" held their op- ponents to a scant 14 points. Pat Harmon, Champaign News-Gazette sports scribe, who has viewed more school-boy clubs than any man in the state, remarked following the Meteor-Harvey tussle: "Calumet City has one of the hardest tackling teams in Illinois".

Outstanding player of the contest was a gent by the name of Iulius Ratajovich, an all-state halfback. "Ioltin"' Iulius is said to have been the hottest ball carrier on the other side of the state line since famed Tom Harmon roamed the Hoosier gridirons for Gary's Horace Mann, a con- ference competitor of the "Hornets" After a week of ironing out the rough spots the Meteors traveled to lack Benny's home town, Waukegan, a first rate member of the strong suburban League.

The loss was TF's second in as many starts and Fractional's optomistic supporters were beginning to wonder if they had overrated the experienced senior outfit. The answer came six days later. Meeting their first league opponent, Kankakee, Friday night, the determined Fractional boys turned on their potenial power to be on the long end of a 34-0 score. Touchdowns were made by Sonnenberg, La Noue, Sobczak, and Shaffer. The educated toe of Perkins added 3 extra points and an attempted conversion by Vitale was also good. With fire in their eyes, the Meteorites, who had returned to their true form, ran wild on the Blue Island gridiron the following Saturday, afternoon. With every man on the squad seeing action, the "Islanders" were slaughtered 39 to 0. Being held to 7 points the first half, Fractional over-ran the "Ponies" in the last two periods to score 5 touchdowns. The Meteors' tight defense held Blue Island to a gain of 28 yards and one first down while their offensive clicked for 294 yards. Big "Gootch" Sobczak plunged from the one yard Ed Iarosz mark to the first two scores and Bill Freyman was credited with 18 Football Manager points. A pass interception by Don Zimmerman gave TF the final A six points. October 10 took the high flying Petreemen to Harvey, where they Xi .X V - X met the heaviest school boy team in the state. The Meteors, whose forward wall averaged 170 pounds were outweighed 25 pounds to a man. The Wildcats took the kickoff and were immedi- ately on the march. Advancing the pigskin to the 17 yard line, it appeared that Harvey's superior weight had already decided the contest. But Fractional's line fought gallantly with their backs to the wall and threw the "Flying Clouds" for four straight losses totaling 19 yards. From then on it was anybody's ball game. A desperate last minute Calumet City drive put the football on Har- veyxs five yard line, but the weighty Lipe Aggregation frustrated the Meteor attack. The thrilling contest ended in a scoreless tie. Thornton Fractional's first Home Coming, held October 24, was a great success by virtue of our victory over Bloom of Chicago Heights. ln a see-saw battle that went from one end of the field to the other, the Meteors were able to eke out a 6 to 0 score over the Trojans. Vitale's 25 yard pass to La Noue in the end zone proved to be the margin of victory. November 1 will be a date long remembered by the boys on the 1941 football squad. On the Argo gridiron that had a close resemblance to a miniature Lake Michigan due to a three day down- pour, the two teams wallowed back and forth in the mud for the league championship. The Meteors captured the only score of the game in the opening minutes of play and held on to their 6 to O lead until the final gun. Again it was a pass from Vitale to La Noue, made possible by "Bull', Padjen. The victory over the Argonauts clinched the title for Thornton Fractional.

It was the third straight contest to be decided by a touchdown pass. This time it was Galik who grabbed one dose of Vitale's tosses. Elgin, using the famed T formation did not score until the final period. Failure of the "Watch City" to penetrate the stalwart Meteor line for extra point cost them a tie. The Petreemen rang down the curtain of the 1941 football season by inflicting a crushing defeat on the Warriors of Hammond Catholic Central 26 to 0. It was sweet revenge for the Calumet City lads, who were held to a scoreless tie the previous year. The Meteors cracked the Hoosiers' line to bits in repeated drives, but were held to four touchdowns. Beautiful runs by Giglio and Vitale enabled them to cross paydirt, but penalties recalled the touchdown sprints. Perkins's well-directed conversions gave the Meteors two points. The outstanding feature of the Meteor offense during the successful grid season was the splendid aerial attack. Final records show the Meteors to have complete 54 of 49 passes attempted and six of the 18 touchdowns were via the sky route. A trio of teams, Bloom, Argo, and Elgin were defeated as a result of a touchdown pass. Of the 24 monogram winners, 15 are seniors, and will be sorely missed. A tense Moment in the Bloom LaNoue Game Perkins You may not know it, but there are future Tom Harmons, Don Hutsons, "Bulldog" Turn- ers, and other gridiron heroes in the picture below. Yes, sir, it is the Frosh-Soph squad coached by Aitken Young, which compiled 97 points to their opponents' 38, in winning six out of eight tilts. The Youngsters finished second in the "Kidlet', division of the South Suburban League. Impressive victories were turned in against Lew Wallace, Kankakee, Blue Island, Morgan Park, Bloom, and Argo. A heart breaking loss occurred to the Meteors in the final appearance of the season against Elgin. After battling to a scoreless tie for 60 minutes the Elgin backfield was in motion on the last la of the ame. The un sounded and the contest was over but another ila had to be run P Y g 8 5 I Y due to the penalty. It was a Hollywood finish as the "Watch City" connected for a touchdown pass, spelling defeat for Calumet City. Two fumbles cost Fractional the Iunior title in the SS. Loop. With the score tied 7 to 7 at halftime, Harvey took advantage of tough breaks in the last two periods as TF fumbled on their 8 and 11 yard line and the "Wildcats" immediately pushed the pigskin across paydirt on both occasions to win the league Championship. Showing promise and consistency throughout the season were Pomelia, Nondorf, Hoge, Has- iak, N21gY, Dunn, Mathews, and Knoerzer. Row 1: Grant Matthews, Pete Pryz, Tom Pochron, Ioe Shutoski, Capt.

At the close of the season, the Meteors found themselves tied with Argo for the number two spot in the South Suburban Conference and a record of ll wins against 7 setbacks. Although the win and loss columns imply that the Purple and Gold did not live up to expectations, the team showed impressiveness even in losing. Two encounters were lost by a single point, while a trio of defeats came after two first string members of the squad graduated at mid-year. The net season started with a bang as the Meteors downed in succession Peotone, Blue Island, Kankakee, Lockport, and Argo. The highly touted Harvey outfit admin- istered TF their first defeat followed by losses to Hammond, Clark, and Chicago Heights. In the next three encounters, Calumet City's opponents, Blue Island, Gilman, and Kankakee, finished on the short end of the score. The Meteors, again meeting the "Wildcats" of Harvey and Argo. took it on the chin in both tilts, but the sixteen game schedule was completed with decided wins over Bloom. and over Elmhurst, the West Suburban Champs. if ,Q .. ,SS H i: v X 5 f ' 5 I 1.

Iones to Nondorf Appearing at the Chicago Heights regional, the Calumet City aggregation were given an excellent chance to win the tournament, especially after registering a crushing 44 to 17 victory over Peotone in their first tilt. The season came to an abrupt halt the following night as twice beaten Blue Island handed Coach Youngs boys a close 22 to 20 defeat. Meteor basketball fans are looking to next season with a great amount of optimism as only two letter winners will be lost by graduation. The Monogram boys are: MACK BUDZOWSKI-elected honorary captain. Mack in his first year as a heavy- ' weight displayed much of the drive at forward as he showed when a member of the Kiesterites. Budzowski is a senior. BILL FREYMAN-in his first year as a varsity player, Bill stamped himself the most consistent member of the squad. Freyman led the team in scoring. LEW GALIK-Lew's height was sorely missed after his mid-semester graduation. Excellent offensive player. Had an average close to 10 points a game. TED PIETRZAK-a big boy who added defensive strength to Coach Young's ag- gregation. When the going gets tough you can count on Ted to hold the team together. ARCHIE ROSS-the heaviest man on the team. Archibald could be counted on with his aggressiveness to add en ihusiasm to any contest. FRANCIS IONES-Another tall boy. Filled in the center spot nicely after Galik graduated. Outstanding player of the York upset with 6 baskets. DAN SESTAKAUKAS-only a sophomore, Danny is looking forward to the next two years. Has plenty of size. Good in controlling rebounds. ED NONDORF-small but fast. Eddie should develop into a great hardwood i athlete. Nondorf is a sophomore. DON ZIMMERMAN-"Zim" showed what he had toward the end of the season. A fast guard, Don should be one of the mainstays of the squad next year. Galik Goes up in the air.

Lightweights rule the South Suburban hardwood again! With a league record of 11 wins and one defeat, the Meteors captured the title for the third time in the past four seasons under the expert guidance of Coach Iackson Kiester. The highly successful 17 game schedule was completed with the Purple and Gold topping the score on fifteen occasions. Entering the Blue Island Sectional Tournament March 18 as a co-favorite with Til- den Tech of Chicago, the stateliners downed their first opponent, Parker QWest Chi- cago Champsj to the tune of 28 to -11 and then fell before their arch rivals, Tilden, 27 to 16. The Kidlets had opened the season on December Z with an easy victory over Ham- mond Tech, 27 to 7, and followed three days later with another onesided victory over Blue Island, 41 to 19. lt took the Meteors overtime to eke out a scant 21 to Z8 win over Kankakee the 12. On December 19, Lockport came to town to try their luck against the fast stepping Kiesterites, but they too ended on the short end of the count, Z5 to 10. The following night the team traveled to Crete and again were victorious. After a two weeks, lay-off over the Christmas Holidays the Kiesterites lightened their hold on first place by hand- ing Argo a neat 45 to 18 licking on the home floor. The following night it was Harvey's turn to go down in defeat before the mighty Meteor Cagers on their own hardwood aa to the tune of 29 to 12. 1 1 ally HOfVaI1Ch Bert Swgnggn and Chicago Heights were met City's list.

On Friday the 13th of February, the Kiesterites met their Waterloo when they en- countered a scrappy Harvey five. A last second "Wildcat" basket gave the Purple and Gold their first loss, 19 to 18, and ended the victory string at number 13. However, the title was clinched at Argo the following night as the stateliners won 38 to 20. Bloom, the final league opponent, was subdued the 20th of March on the home floor 18 to 13. The second defeat of the season hit the Kiesterites the 27th. After letting up from their championship drive the West Suburban Champs, Elmhurst, whipped the boys 26 to 22 to write "finish" to the impressive season. Every man on the squad expressed his gratitude when ludge Finneran, a former board member, presented the champs with gold basketballs to compliment their ac- complishment. Much credit should be given to Iackson Kiester, fifteen year veteran lightweight mentor. Through his cunning and knowledge of the game, Kiester has constantly turned out brilliant aggregations. His popularity with the boys has been the main factor in the success of T. F. Lightweight squads. A Art Ollrich Iohnny Cipolla , O I I Jiqhtwruqht Wlonoqlzam, ffjlllllflld IOHN PANK-Captain of the squad. Iohnny's excellent defensive ability was a main fac- tor in holding the opponents to a 16 ZX3 point average. BERT SWANSON-In the pivot spot, Bert was the most improved player on the club. Didnit shoot much, but when he did the ball usually went through the basket. WALLY HORVATICH-The classiest all around lightweight in a decade. Strong de- fensive player and runner-up in points scored. Biggest man on the team. Will play heavy- weight ball next season. IOHN CIPOLLA-The other senior member of the first five. Operating at forward. Iohn was a valuable man on offensive. ART OLLRICH-Little Art is following his brother Eugene becoming a T.F. basketball star. Has uncanny ability for field goals. High scorer for the Kiesterites. ' ED KUHLMAN-"Shorty" was the sixth man on the team. His aggressiveness proved to be a valuable asset to Coach Kiester's attack. CHARLES GULATTA-Charly, only a sophomore, will develop into a good lightweight. Likes to hit long shots. DEAN CULP-A senior always giving his best. Dean proved to be a good team man. BOB MARCH-One of the smallest players on the squad. Bob will be back next year. GEORGE BURKHART-a Lansing product with a good eye. You will hear plenty from him next year. CARL SCIAKITANO--Stocky Carl played a good game at guard. An excellent long shot artist. IACK LA NOUE-Grid hero who likes action. Good on a fast break. Likes to shoot.

Jutwuz, With only two lettermen back, Lucien Trimbur and Tom Felsecker, Coach Kelly knew that an outstanding record could not be accomplished. He, therefore, planned to build for the future. Although victorious in only three out of eleven meets, the future, indeed, looks encouraging for the Fractional "Splashers' as a number of talented under-- classmen were discovered. Those who gained swimming monograms this year were: LUCIEN TRIMBUR . . Senior . . . Captain of the tank squad. Was high point man on the team. TOM FELSECKER . . . Senior . . . Tom was the diving specialist of the Kellymen. A two year veteran. IOE STASIAK . . . Iunior . . . A hard worker . . Hopes to be as great as his brother Pete, a former Meteor star. ROBERT SULLIVAN . . . Sophomore . . . Second high point man. With two sea- sons ahead of him, Bob should develop into an outstanding swimmer. FRANK GUDGEON . . . Sophomore . . . Shows great promise and will be back next year to add to his laurels. WALTER RAASCH . . . Senior . . . "Walt" swam the free style and added many a point to Meteors' total. HERMAN BAXTER . . . Iunior . . . Always swam a good race. Kelly expects Herman to be a valuable team man next year. GLEN VANDER AA . . . Iunior . . . A big boy with plenty of strength for the distance. HARRY SPANNON . . . Iunior . . . Harry was the efficient manager whose handy work was enjoyed by every member of the squad. IAMES HENDERSON . . . Senior . . . Another serious loss.

Although getting off to a bad start, the "grunt and groan" squad of T. F. improved amazingly as the season progressed to give them an even break in fourteen meets. In the last seven matches the Meteors were victorious in five, defeating previous opponents who had soundly whipped Calumet City early in the mat season. Outstanding. wrestler under Coach Potts was Ray Kmak, captain in his junior year and reelected co-captain for i4l-'42, Ray was victorious in 68 matches during his high school career and the only athlete' to beat the State Champion, Parsons, of Proviso. Lettermen of the wrestling team are: RAYMOND KMAK .... Senior .... Captain in his junior year. Re-elected Co-Captain. Took a second in State Tournament. Won 68 high school matches. WILLIAM KORTENHOVEN .... Junior .... Proved to be a dependable and trustworthy manager. JOHN VEZMAR .... Senior .... Co-Captain of the squad. Will be sorely missed next season in the 125 lb. class. JACK SOLOMON .... Junior .... One of the mainstays of Coach Potts's outfit. Small but tough. CARL FALKENSTROM .... Sophomore .... Could always be counted on to add points to Fractional's score. One of the outstanding members of the- team. GEORGE WHITMIRE .... Senior .... George is a boy who always gives his best. A good team man. ROB- ERT KMAK .... Junior .... Hopes to fill the shoes of his brother. Showed plenty of strength in the 135 lb. class. ROBERT RENTNER .... Senior .... one of the most spirited boys on the squad. Showed determination. LEO HODUR .... Senior .... another veteran who will be missed when the "grunt and groan" season rolls around. WALLACE COSGROVE .... Junior .... the biggest man on the squad. Turned in good performances in both 175 and heavyweight divisions. MILTON VAN DRUNEN .... Junior .... Qualified for State- Tournament but illness prevented his entry. Should be a powerhouse next season. EUGENE BRINKMAN .... Senior .... Eugene proved his stuff on the mat and earned enough points for his letter.

The power, skill, and speed of the senior team carried them to the championship after a hard-fought Iunior- Senior game. When I was a freshman, I marveled at the ability of the outstanding players and now I sit back and visualize the girls who are and will become a part of the "cream'i of the crop. No one will surpass Dorothy Lucito or Abby Alys Abblett in sinking second base shots, or Lillian Hudzik and Norma Urbanski in flipping the ball in from first base. Ruth Becker and Norma Butler are only freshmen, but time will smile on them and in a few years they'll join the outstanding ones for their volleyball playing.

Wilene Steinkraus, Shirley Blackburn, Sophie Sarros, and Iean Ostrowski, though they weren't the most outstanding, saved the seniors from defeat many times. Yes, sir, all these girls belong in G. A. Cfs Hall of Fame. Iust ask the person whose advice on this subject is IHOSI respected, the one and only Miss Iaacks. I'm sure everyone in G. A. C. would agree that at the head of all these players would stand small but mighty Nora Heimbuch, dynamite on any floor, including the dance floor. She was the only girl that could rush around the excellent guarding of Phyllis Nor- daker and score baskets. She held on to all the sizzling line drives, including those meteor- like balls hit by Ruthy Schutz, Besides her unusual ability in sports she'll always stand forth as one of the best G. A. C. presidents during my four high school years. I think the reason I enjoyed the G. A. C. sports volleyball, basketball, captain basket- We've transacted a lot of business in our G. A. C. meetings, too. Our G. A. C. Social was a huge success and we even helped buy a Defense Bond. This year certainly has been complete. Everything was almost perfection itself. The Initiation Party and our banquet were the best held in T. F.'s halls for a long time. It was at the Initiation Party that Doris Schutz, Norma Heimbuch, and Nelda Berger received their major letters after having worked four years for them. G.A.C. has helped to round out four wonderful high school years and although they are gone I'll always have them because-Time fascinates me-I can always bring the past up to the present through my memories-my G.

"Successful! Entertaining! Enjoyable!" These were the exclamations of the spectators attending the annual Terrapin Water Show on May 15 as the final act drew to a close marking the end of Terrapin activities for the year. Tl1e Terrapin members went out of their way this year to make the show a success, choosing highly amusing comedy acts, selecting the most difficult dives and ballets, but excellently and gracefully handled by such girls as Grace Iones, Pat Lauerman, Mary Gab- I G.A.C.

The trick swimming and flashlight performance were highlights of the show. Betty Ann Rappe announced the various acts and performers. i. The membership in the club was the largest it has ever beeng therefore bigger and bet- ter shows were given. The Water Carnival held in November was such a huge success that four shows had to be given for the one evening. Although the girls did not place in the annual telegraphic meet, everyone had a lot of fun taking part in the races.

SOME CHANGES The past year saw a lot of changes in Dame Fashion. For instance it saw the girls going around with their hair in pigtails, then watched them crop it off in three inch cuts. It saw the boys outdoing the three inch business by getting brush haircuts and looking like prsoners awaiting execution. It saw the glamour girls go to the other extreme and wearing their hair Veronica Lake style- long and straight with a wave covering one eye and obscuring their vision. It saw the wave of "Sweater Girls" striving to resemble Lana Turner. It saw the wearing of 3A socks much to the disgust of the boys. It saw the boys going rustic and wearing overall pants with wide suspenders much to the dis- gust of the girls. It saw the girls trying to outdo each other with bigger babush- kas and longer fringe. It saw the girls going Holly- wood and wearing slacks with casual polo coats. Yep-We sure went through a lot to suit Dame Fashion-but it was fun. Horst.
