We students salute our school and our hearts fill with
pride as we turn back the pages of history to the year
1925 when thirty T F students received their diplomas
Since then the classes have decidedly increased in number
so that now more than two hundred students complete
their high school education here each year For 25 years

ties and has sent them through those doors four years later

The disastrous fire on December 20, 1953, virtually de-
stroyed everything T. 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-
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
The "Spirit of T. will reminisce on these events as it

Among the outstanding facilities of T. F. is the library
which has a collection of approximately 7300 volumes,
including f1ction, non-fiction and reference books, plus a
large selection of magazines and newspapers.
The library, gymnasiums, and swimming pool, plus the
well-equipped modern classrooms, afford T. F. students
a friendly atmosphere for mental and physical develop-

Above are pictured the members of the Board of Education. 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
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.

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

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.

The Spirit of T. 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. F. .

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

The 1948 gridmen proved to be a capable match for any team they played.
Under the directorship of Coaches Petree and Sowinski the gridmen compiled a
record of five wins and four losses.
Bloom again proved to be our downfall as Fractional dropped its last game of the

Many of the touchdowns were scored by halfbacks Bob

the Meteors owned at least one win over their league competitors with the excep-

The girls who participate in the activities of G.A.C. learn basic athletic skills and develop good sports-
manship. As we can see by the smiles of these girls, they really have the pep and stamina that upholds
the Spirit of T. F.
The G.A.C. girls meet three times a Week after school. They may take part in any one or all of the five
sports offered: volleyball, captain basketball, basketball, swimming, and baseball.
ln order to earn a letter, a girl must not only make teams, but she must also keep training rules and com-
plete the hikes required for her class.

organizations resulted in her being selected as T. Ffs Good Citizen. The Mono-

Each year the faculty selects from the members of the senior class those who are Worthy of mem-
bership in the National Honor Society. The four qualities for which the members are chosen are
scholarship, leadership, character, and service.
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. F. gym,

Those who are responsible for passing on
the "Spirit of T. are the Seniors. This
.1949 graduating class is the twenty-fifth class
to depart from T. F.'s doors-leaving to the
underclassmen their fine example of service,
of leadership, and of character, and taking
with them the memories of four years well
spent. Under the capable leadership of Art,
Dick, Linda, and Fanny, they held a ban-
quet, entertained us on Senior Day, and re-
freshed us with "cokes," which they sold at
the games and socials.

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
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
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,

field. 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
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. October 19, the following
day, was the second Girls' Club

activity, or rather, party. It was the
Girls' Club Halloween Party. 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

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. The days that

activity and before we knew it,
Thanksgiving vacation came our
way. The vacation extended from
Nov. 25th to the 29th. The day
after returning to school we had
our first basketball game. We played
Clark of Hammond in their gym.
The Meteors were defeated in their
first game of the season. The first
semester ended Dec. 33 on Dec. 4
we played Fenger in our gymg on
the 10th we played Kankakee,
there. The Alumni played the Var-
sity here and our old friends came
back to visit.
The Girls' Club tea was held on
. Q . Compliments of
Dec. 12 and all mothers and teachers
were invited. The girls, all dressed
up in their Sunday best, came to
have tea and conversation. The
Christmas Concert was held on Dec.
15 and the girls and boys sang in
all their glory. We played our old
rival, Bloom, again. Only now, it
was basketball, and we were again
defeated but "We'l1 beat them, next
year, for sure,', we say. The time
for another vacation arrived and
that Wonderful Christmas vacation
filled the days from Dec. 30 to Jan.

Dec. 30 there was a Christmas dance
called the Holly-Daze. In the way
of all vacations this one, too, came
to a closeg school began again, and
Jan. 7 was the date of our first
game after the vacation and we
played Blue Island at T. F. The
following day T. F. met Bradley at
Bradley and got a "licking" On
jan. 14 we played our last scheduled
game until tournament time, when
T. F. was matched against Lockport
in Lockport's gym.
Feb. 10 was the big day for the
sophomore girls, who donned their
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. The
junior Class sponsored the Valen-
tine Social after the game and amid
hearts, crepe paper, games, and
dancing T. F. students celebrated
their victory. The 18th of February
was another night for T. F. when
they trounced Lockport 50 to 36,
but the following week we dropped

big day for all the girls, the Girls'
Club election, when the board for
1949-'50 was decided. On the 22nd
the lucky girls who had an invita-

donned their new dresses and

next day. Then came the big dance
of the year. The date of the junior
Senior Prom was May 28th when
those students arrayed in their gay
formals and neat tuxedos had an
evening they will always remember
- especially will those girls for
whom it was the first formal, recall
it as a very special time.
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.

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-
