When Alice stepped into the Wonderland
of Thornton Fractional and glanced into her
looking glass, on the first day of school she
saw the students grouped together discussing
their schedules, renewing old acquaintances,
and talking over the events of the forthcoming
Alice, that fascinating character of our child-
hood book, trips lightly from the pages of Alice
in Wonderland and says invitingly, "Won't you
join me in a trip to another Wonderland? This
time instead of stepping down a rabbit hole or
through a looking glass, l'm going to visit an
even more wonderful place, the high school of
your dreams, T. F. Won't you come along?"

It didn't take Alice long to discover the close
friendly relationship between teacher and stu-
dent. She saw too how day through day, stu-
dents came closer to achieving their future
goals because of the guiding hands of the
superintendent and assistant

intendent and guidance director
since 7948, has launched a guidance
program which is helping to make
the school serve efticiently the pur-
pose of the students.
Superintendent James H. Leonard
has been superintendent of Thornton
Fractional since 79118 and follows his
personal philosophy of education in
which he says, "We strive to have
each youth become as proficient as

board of education
As we look back upon our eventful years at T. F. we must give tribute to the six
members of our school board who have given unceasingly of their time and energy
to decide the problems of the school and keep it running smoothly.
These able class counselors advise T.F. students to follow the
vocations of doctors, secretaries, teachers, or machinists after
carefully analyzing individual, mental, and physical tests and

The doy thot Alice looked through her looking
gloss ot 3:00 she was quite surprised ond o little
confused to see students scurrying from clossroom
to locker ond back ogoin to classroom. She soon
found out thot otter school was the time for the
clubs to go into oction. It didn't tcike her long to
decide thot T. F. was C1 very busy ploce.
The T.F. band under the direction of Mr. Harold Christian acts as a shining
reflection of Fractional's spirit. Playing at assemblies, football games, and
parades, its performances reflect countless hours of practice and a job well
The twirlers, who add attraction while they strut in their sparkling white
uniforms during the athletic events and parades, do much to liven up school
spirit as well as enhance the appearance of our marching band.

As we look over another successful year in Girls' Club we think of a number ot untor-
gettable events. First the Big 'n Little Sister Party, then the Girls' Club Dance, all ot the
assemblies and matinees and then, finally, the Mother-Daughter party from which many
of the girls emerged with their shiny new TF pins.

Ghosts and witches hovered over the big gym the day the Girls' Club held its
annual Halloween Party. The top picture shows part of the sophomore class skit

Shouts, screams, and sobs-all were heard from room 228 where the speech team members
met after school for coaching by Earl Davis. Wherever the team might have journeyed for com-
petition, whether to Hammond High, Washington, or to other schools, the students always man-
aged to make a good showing for the school.
The debate team, known for its argumentative ability, can truly say that arguing is justifiable,
especially when it includes the competition presented by some of the other schools in this area.

The main object of this club has been to help its members get the practice and
knowledge of some of the work done in the business world. Aside from work, the
Commercial Club is also holding parties, socials, dances, and has sold popcorn after
school. Commercial Club is sponsored by Miss Elizabeth Kessinger, who works with
the girls who will be tomorrow's secretaries.
These industrious girls are kept as busy as Alice's white rabbit as they perform
many Hbehind the scenes" tasks which help keep our school running smoothly. They
gain valuable experience for their future place in the business world operating the
switchboard, typing, delivering messages, collecting absence lists and doing many
small but important jobs for the office girls and for administrative oliicersg
stooges - monitors
Each time we visited 227 we were sure to find one of Miss Jaaclcs' stooges working hard.
She would either be sorting money, selling tickets, selling Chronoscopes or doing some
other necessary job.
"Who?" "Where?" "What time?" were the main questions asked by the hall Monitors
as they checked your pink passes in the hall. These students sacrificed a study hall or library
period in order to do this Work.

These busy girls in IO8 help the deans to help you. Theirs is the filing, pencil
pushing, and other similar tasks, thus they give the deans more time for per-

"Take your pulse?" The clinic assistants not only clo an important job, but
also receive invaluable training for future years.
magazine salesmen - ticket salesmen
"Let me in, please!" Knock, knock, "Open the door!" was the cry of the magazine sales-
men. They canvassed the town from house to house, selling subscriptions. Those who sold
over 525.00 were considered top salesmen.
On the left side of the railing are the "super seven" salesmen who sold over s5o.oo worth
Profits from the magazine help finance the Chronoscope.
"Football tickets? Got your football ticket yet? Basketball tickets!" echoes through the
halls during the football and basketball seasons. No one who treads the corridors ot T. F.
escapes the clutches of these capable ticket salesmen.

"Want to buy a Thorntonian?" This familiar cry is heard at the beginning ot
every semester, and our Thorntonian salesmen never let the public forget that
every T. Ffer "in the know" reads the Thorntonian.
Without our ad-getters, we-'d have no paper, so naturally they are an in-
dispensable part ot our publications organization.

The handling of the l95O-l95l Guidebook was a job tor which all the work was done during
the summer. Mr. Jackson Keister held his guiding hand over these few students who edited the
book which tells us how to act at T. F.
Ready to step into the shoes of this year's sta His are these budding writers of the .lournalism
class. Linder the able direction of Miss Mildred Pidgeon, they learn the "ins" and "outs" of
lournalism before taking an active part in the publications department.
A guiding hand is held over the publica-
tions department by Miss Mildred Pidgeon.
Resting on her shoulders is a large part of
the responsibility for editorial production
of the yearbook. Miss Pidgeon is complet-
ing her fourth year as editorial advisor.
Without Miss Jaacks-no money, and
without money-no publications! A big
job in handling publications, the financial
job, is managed by Miss Adeline Jaaclcs,
our financial advisor for many years.
'iJudy's" reporters were on the job when it
came to gathering news tor the 7950-'5l
THORNTONIAN. Although there were many
last minute stories handed in, the staff man-
aged to get out a successful bi-weekly news-
paper so that T. F. students could keep up
with the happenings of their school.

freshmen football squad
A touchdown pass from Dean Siedelman to John Metzcus gave the Fractional
freshmen football squad a 6-O victory over powerful lrving Park of Hammond
in their opening encounter.
Following a 6-6 tie with Kankakee, they became, however, less successful as the
season progressed by losing to Blue Island, Harvey, Bishop Noll, and Bloom in
their remaining games.
The passing combination of Siedelman to lvlalackowski proved to be very effec-
tive in the Noll Central game as the "freshies" broke the former freshmen
passing record of T90 yards by collecting 24 yards. Coach Gentile cites Dean
Siedelman, Robert lvlalackowski, Eugene Rose, Robert Tarvarsky, Tom Cowles,
Bob Salzwedel, and Ed Hunter as the prospects to watch in the future.

Although the varsity basketballers posted a 5 won, 78 lost, season's record,
the four juniors on the starting five showed great promise. With the experi-
ence gained during the 7950-57 season, they should give T. F. a squad of which
we can be proud. Next season's roster will boast nine returning lettermen.

The fact that this year's Varsity swim squad was made up mostly of juniors, indicates a promis

three sophomore monogram winners will be returning next season. The Frosh-Soph team
boasted a slightly better record than did the varstiy swimmers.

Baseball was introduced for the first time at T. F. this year. In the first game
of T. F.'s baseball history The Meteors bowed to the mighty Wildcats of Ham-
mond High, 5 to O.
A line drive to center field to open the second inning gave Joe Mendez the
honor of getting the first hit in Fractional history. The T. F. nine, however, won
their South Suburban Conference game by edging Leyden 6-5.

room she coulcln't help seeing through her looking
glass the sophisticated seniors leading the way in
activities and the energetic juniors always ready to
lend the seniors a helping hand. She noticed too,

alice and alex t. f.'er
Meet Alice and Alex T.F.'er,
The typical high school girl and boy.
ln studies and social activities,
They participate with the utmost of joy.
ln athletics they both are outstanding,
Their sportsmanship rates most high.
For Alex football is demanding,
For Alice, "G, A. C." is her cry.
Their homework they do Without moaning,
On the honor roll their names do appear.
"Co-operation" is their motto tor learning
Exams for them hold no great tear.
Both Alice and Alex are active
Their friends rate them as the best,
But the thing that pleased Alice and Alex
ls that they have won in their quest.
But Alice and Alex aren't angels,
Their mischief is spread 'round the school.
And no matter how both of them acted
They still follow that old "Golden Rule".
Now Alice and Alex are leaving,
Departing from old T.F. High
With the memory of glorious years of high
To their classmates, they're saying "good-
"Lighfs! Camera! Roll'em boys!"
No, you're not at Paramount stu- I
clio, you're up in room 200 af T. F.
Each clay many interesting movies
are shown fo various classes with
the capable help of the boys who
run the moving picture machine.

As Alice stepped through the
looking glass she began adventures
which were strange and wonderful
-never to be forgotten. Just so, as
a freshman enters high school he
begins experiences which will be
remembered forever. When Alice
awakened, she discovered that it
had been only a strange dream.
When a student finishes T. F., he
discovers himself a man or woman
-with the wonderland of adult-
hood before him.
Wide-eyed, wonder-filled, Alice
timidly stepped into the looking
glass. Now Alice wasn't perfect.
She was just like you or me. Wide-
eyed, wonder-filled, we, too, en-
tered as freshmen into this high
school wonderland. Both Alice and
we departed much wiser and full of
Let us, the T. F. student body,
weld ourselves into one with the
mystical figure of Alice and gaze
with her backward through the
looking glass of time, to that mid-
century year of l95O-'5l.
In a mirror everything is in re-
verse, so, looking backward, the
first thing we remember is Com-
mencement. 'Mid the bustle and
sad partings, Alice is a white queen
in a gray gown, the center of atten-
tion. She will miss T. F., but adven-
ture awaits her as she, diploma in
her hand, memory in her heart,
bids farewell to her school.
Never to be forgotten by Alice
and her friends was the Junior-
Senior Sneak and the bright red
faces of the kids that spent the day
at the Dunes!
June 73 and lr!! Exams!! Need
we say more?
On June 5, the Girls' Athletic
Club gave their annual banquet.
When she proudly received her
cup, Alice felt well repaid for the
aching, strained muscles she had
