F. possessed except a "never-say-die" spirit. It resulted in one of the most complicated and in- convenient classroom routines in a school's history. It resulted too, in a new modern building and a renewed vigor on the part of the students, faculty, and administra- tion. Through those twenty-five years, that T. F. spirit-loyalty, determination, ambition, and cooperation -has always been present. The spirit of gaiety and good sportsmanship has a permanent place at T. F., too, in the games, dances, and parties that we shall never forget as part of our high school careers. The "Spirit of T. will reminisce on these events as it proceeds to tell the story of its twenty-Hfth year . . 1948 - 1949.

Among the outstanding facilities of T.

Although we did not see them personally, we knew they were important factors in the operation of our school. Mr. james Leonard, during his first year as Superintendent at Thornton Fractional proved himself a progressive leader. He is determined to see that the students of his school receive the best education he and his faculty can possibly give them. With the cooperation of the students and faculty, Mr. Leonard's guiding hand has directed a successful year. Mr. Jackson Kiester, Director of Guidance, confers with a student about one of the many tests he has administered this year under the newly instituted guidance program. im :rsw.e::feszg:p::fei ms ...iptxazgtm ,tx . ., . 34068 LU 0 do UQ many IQPOAAHQ5 DEAN OF BOYS-Mr. Aitken Young, the Dean of Boys, is the man who takes care of the boys, problemsg whether they mean changing a class schedule or punishing a truant boy. The spirit of students is bound to decline at some time, but Mr. Young stands by, ready to keep the school spirit of TF alive and flourishing. DEAN OF GIRLS-A true companion is Miss Katherine Brazzill, Dean of Girls. Re- gardless of how trivial a girl's problem may seem, Miss Brazzill is ready and willing to help . . . to help keep up the morale of all the girls in school. ' FINANCIAL ASSISTANT-One of the most important duties of a school is to see that the money is spent wisely. Mr. Henry Legg, as financial assistant, performs this task expertly. '12 Upper fef!

A O! .S?lfL6!QIflf5 7 QYLQPCL ,ML CLP8 Miss Virginia Smith, R.N. is the person to whom we take our aches and pains. Miss Smith supervises all the health programs at T. F. She has especially encouraged and promoted the Tuberculosis skin testing and X-ray programs. The maintenance force is responsible for the physical upkeep of the building. Here they are shown performing some of the duties that are a part of their daily routine. This year T. F. lost the services of one of its most faithful maintenance men. Nick Dalkampls tragic death is regretted by all who remember his loyal service-whether it was marking the football field for the games or lending a helping hand wherever it was needed. The office secretaries maintain efficiency in the general office. Although their duties are end- less, they can usually find time to help us with many of our office problems. The faculty at Thornton Fractional is often the incentive for the cooperative and loyal spirit among the students. T. F. can be proud of its excellent student-teacher relationship. The students depend largely upon the teachers for advice in attempting to overcome high school difficulties and in making plans for their futures. 15 we gCl,ClflAg g7l'lC0lfLI"Cl,9Q5 Left to right: Mary Frances Lynch-Bminexx, Shorthand Ann Schmidt-Typing Mary Spelbring-Librarian, Latin Helen Temple-Art, Home Management Elizabeth Kessinger-Ojfce Practice, Eminem, Show- band, Typing II, Burinesr Engliib Bruce Miller-Geography Sigrid Stark-Englirb, Rhetoric Adolph Gentile-Plyyriolngy, Swimming, Gym Jackson Kiester-Pbyricr, Biology Adeline jaacks-Biology Katherine Brazzill-Claemistry Mary Shemaitis-Gym, Swimming Arthur Smith-Algebra, Plane Geometry Mrs. Lilyan Wfilson-World Hirtory, American Hirtoiy Mrs. Etha J.

F. is exemplified by its extra-curricular activ- ities. To be sure, the organizations have been altered since our first anniversary. Ardisastrous fire and World War II cur- tailed participation to a certain extent, but a spirit of aggres- siveness and determination led the way to a bright and shining future. For some, these organizations proved a method of learning--learning to be a leader or a follower- learning the qualities which constitute character. For others, they proved a constant source of enjoyment and clean fun. These activities and organizations will forever carry on the Spirit of T.

A group of twelve girls, considered the best singers at T. F.,'constitute the Double Sextette. Meeting three times a week, the girls learn musical numbers ranging from Debussy to Cole Porter. The Double Sextette appears in the Christmas and Spring Con- certs and also entertains for various community organizations. The Girls' Chorus is composed of girls who appreciate music and have singing ability. During the course of the year, the chorus performs at two concerts and also at the Baccalaureate service. 20 lflfle 0 g CLFLJ A6lI"lfl'l0Ifl An introduction to T. Ffs choral groups is Freshman Chorus. Through l this club, freshmen are taught the elements of group singing. At the end of their freshman year, girls in Freshman Chorus are eligible to try I out for Girls' Chorus. Since, for T most girls, their training is just starting, appearances are limited to 1 the Christmas and Spring Concerts. The Meistersingers constitute T. F.'s only boys' glee club. They are chosen and instructed by Mr. Christian, mu- sic director. Besides performing at the concerts, the Meistersingers sing for various civic groups and each year have a concession at the Carnival.

Whenever any secretarial duties needed to be accomplished we could always depend upon the Commercial Club. Under the sponsorship of Miss Elizabeth Kessinger the girls re- ceived practical experience in office and secretarial work. Besides their commercial duties the club sponsored dances and sold refreshments after school to get funds to augment their treasury. A staff of competent girls was employed to add to the efficiency of T. Ffs "business centersf, Several girls were needed each period to help with the many errands and duties in the school office. The First National Bank had nothing on Room 221 and Miss Jaack's "Stooges" who were never hesitant when it came to checking and counting money. Miss Brazzill's assistants kept the Deanls office running smoothly. They engaged in typing and filing records for girls' absences and detentions.

History is made every year, and, as usual, Fractional's gridders of 1948 will go down in our book of memories as 'lThe Team." Although Dave Stinson was T. F.'s main offensive threat, his defensive punting will always be remembered. Dave was honored by the coaches by being chosen All South Suburban half- back. In the upper right corner is the famil- iar pose of the Meteor field general, Al Freyman. Al was elected to the All South Suburban second team. The elusive running of Len Czerwinski is shown in the middle of the page. Len's line plunging was also a great asset to the team. Bob Sertic proved to be a dependable defensive end. Bobls excellent block- ing made him valuable as an offensive threat also. The threesome shown in the lower center of the page are LeRoy jaworski, Co-Captain Bob Stinson, who was chosen as All South Suburban centerg and Henry Wleklinski. They were the main factors of the Meteor line. Many opposing teams were respectful of their aggressive playing. At the bottom of the page is the small, but powerful Meteor "forward wallf' Not a finer group of linesmen than Vic Modjeski, Co-Captain Gordon Bartman, LeRoy Jaworski, Co-Captain Bob Stinson, Henry Wleklinski, Ray Ciastlco, and John Danewicz, could have been found on the gridiron of T. F. WWCLLQA ct amucdclown At the top of the page we see Vic Modjeski, our right end. Vic's splendid blocking and all around playing will be hard to replace. Although Vern Frank seemed small to much of the opposition, his line plung- ing had plenty of punch, which the visitors soon found out. Tom Chillis proved to be one of our flashiest reserves. Tom's running abil- ity is demonstrated in the upper center of the page. Bob Kobeska and Glenn Snider were T. F.'s scrappy reserve guards. Their alertness stopped many of the plays of the opposition. The familiar play taking place in the lower center of the page is the end around. This play is executed by All South Suburban John Danewicz. Johnls hard running was one of the elements that gave T. F. a successful team. Fractionalls "Four Horsemen" were Len Czerwinski, Allen Freyman, Vern Frank, and Dave Stinson. Their team- work brought many touchdowns for the Purple and Gold this season.

This year, thirty-three students were added to the membership of the Oasis Chapter of the Society. The thirty-three new members pictured above focus their attention upon Ralph Erchinger, whom they chose as Master of Ceremonies for the formal candlelight installation which was presented to the entire body on April 21, in the T.

T. F. started the year out right. School opened Sept. 7. What a day! The sun was shining and it was so warm. With excitement everyone greeted his old friends, whom he hadn't seen all summer, and the students gossiped about the things they had done and friends they had met. School was in session the full day, but of course, there were few as- signments. The week progressed and came Friday, the big day for the "fi-eshies,', Sept. 10, the Big and Little Sister Party. We played games and went back for second helpings W3 awp icing . The following day was our first football game with Noll Central. We played the game on Cer1tral's field and we won. After the game, many of us met and chartered at our favorite "hang out," Del's. The week went by and Friday finally arrived when our next game was played. The date now was Sept. 17, We played Tech on Hammond Highls field. Tech Won that game but we weren't too depressed. Sept. 22 was the Frosh boys' day. It was the annual Boys, Club Fresh- man Party. Two days later we had our first League game in football, Congrafufafionri CLASS OF 1 9 4 9 SPIES BROTHERS INCORPORATED Custom Built jewelry Class Rings and Pins Club jewelry Announcements Dance Progwuns - Bids and Fuvms Gwuluation Gifts of Distinction Loop Office and Show Room 27 E.

We won that game with fly- ing colors, and on the way home on the bus we yelled to the very top of our lungs. Oct. 1 was one of the most important games, solely because it was our homecoming game. We won the game and be- cause it was our first home game it was also the date of our first social of the year. The next event was our football game when T. F. played St. Bede here on October 8. The next night was the first big dance of the year. On October 9 most of us, attended the annual Girls' Club Dance. The theme for icufy . . the dance was "Indian Summer," and the favors were brightly colored feathers. The Girls' Club Dance is always a big event and is something well remembered by everyone who goes. Everything went back to normal after the dance, and Oct. 15, the end of the week, was also the end of our first grading term. For some, that was a good day and for others, well, they weren't too pleased but they vowed to do better. That same night we had another home game and our opponent was Chicago Senn.

En- tertainment and refreshments were on the program, and it was most enjoyable. On the following Fri- day, October 22, the Pullman game was played on home ground. After the game was the usual social. Ac- tivities for the following week were of the usual caliber, and nothing "extra special" happened. There was the game on Friday with Argo and the social after the game. On Nov. 5 we played Bloom on their field. Our long standing rivals beat us again. This was our last iarg . . . football game for "48" - the last game for the Seniors but they surely had a nice season. Armistice Day rolled around and, as always, we had the day off. On this holiday our carnival also took place. We tried a new system this year to cut down the crowds. The main show, which was Maxwell Street, was given two nights. The concessions and swim show were given on the last night of the main show, the l2th. The carnival went off very well, indeed. For some, it was the last but most memorable carnival performance.

Feb. 10 was the big day for the sophomore girls, who donned their lar? . Sunday best and attended the Soph- omore tea. The following evening we piled into the bus and went to Blue Island only to be beaten by the Cardinals, but our morale was raised the next night when the "Fractional Five" trimmed Gilman 49-29 on our home floor.

Senior Day, june 3, marked the finale to the school year of 1948- 1949, our 25th anniversary year, and one of fun and happiness that will always be held dear in the hearts of the T. F. students who were priv- ileged to experience it. .7 .Ma tory The spirit of T. F. goes back to the time when both Calumet City Q then called West Hammondi and Lansing had their own high schools. Then in 1924, Lansing was un- able to collect thirty-five high school students and so, by action of the state legislature, had to forfeit high school rights. Thornton Fractional district was organized in 1924 and classes were held first in 1924, both in Lansing and West Hammond. The first class was graduated in 1925 and consisted of thirty people. In 1925 the entire high school was brought together in the Went- HOME PUBLISHING CO., INCORPORATED 5809 Calumet Avenue Hammond, Indiana Call Us For Your School Bulletins or Plant Publications Telephone: Hammond 2410 1 RABIN'S APPLIANCE 81 FURNITURE CO.
