The Board of Education is the framework upon which our school system functions. The
Board meets the second Wednesday of each month with Superintendent W. E. 1V1cVey to
discuss problems, possible improvements, and changes in our ool system. They are
always ready to give their whole-hearted cooperation in ' g true Thornton spirit and
seeing that Thornton ideals and standards are upheld t t tmost esteem. They are men
capable of taking care of the ever increasing ed f r rapidly growing institution. The
Board, after careful investigation, selects gy members when needed.
Mr. A. H. McDougall is the prese t p ident and has been a member since 1913. Mr.
G. H. Gibson, vice-president, h se s a member ofthe board since 1912. The secretary
of the board since 1933 is . Wa so.
Other memb s o oard are Mr. W. R. Brandt who has served for eight years,
Mr. C. E. Waterm ing since 1911, Mr. G. P. Fisher who has been a member since
1933 and Mr. W. aines, a new member elected April 8, 1939.
The Board members are elected by a direct vote of the people, and they give their serv-
ices free. They are always working toward improving the school and community so that
Thomton will be a better and more abundant source of thorough knowledge and inspiration.

Thornton faculty members have always endeavored to press Thornton spirit, loyalty and
prestige in their classes. Thornton pupils rank high in the field of knowledge, but without
the aid of excellent leaders and advisors this would not be true.
There are eleven major departments in our school system. Several of these major depart-
ments are divided into smaller divisions. Each particular division has one of its members as
a head. Mr. O. F. Umbaugh is head of the English department. The science department is
divided into five divisions each with a separate head-biology, Mr. A. C. Brookleyg chem-
istry, Mr. D. C. Allen: general science, Mr. L. L. Schilb: physics, Mr. P. S. Godwin: and
physiology taught by the school nurse, Miss A. Ellis. The social science department is divided
into three classes-history, economics, and Civics. Mr. C. C. Stegmeir heads the histor r
and Mr. I. F. Zimmerman economics a d '
Y 9 OUP
, n civics. The language department is headed by
Miss M. E. Anderson.

Heading the Business Department is Miss E. L. Lieber. Mr. L. Britton is head of Industrial
Arts. Miss D. Thiel heads the Art Department. Physical training for girls is directed by Miss
M. G. Carr, and Mr. K. I. Lipe heads the physical training for boys. The Music Department is
divided into band, orchestra, choral groups and music appreciation. The Home Economics
Department has Miss Gertrude Rahn as its head. Florence E. Waterman is the cafeteria manager.
The school has several people who do not teach subjects but who do much to make the
Thornton student's school life easier and more comfortable. A nurse, librarians, study hall
teachers, and superintendents of building and grounds constitute this group.
Thornton's ninety faculty members are to be recognized not only for their classroom work
but also for their interest and cooperation in extra-curricular activities.

The "400" under the leadership of class president, lack McPherrin, and his assistants, Bayard
Stevenson, Milton Younker, William Stanley and George Hayes, have contributed to make
the year 1939 a truly unforgettable one!
The "400", that's what they call the thirty-niners whose class this year totaled 476 members.
The Girls Club forged ahead with Virginia Treen as leader while the Boys Club made
strides with William Stanley as president.
Our football team under inspiration of Coach Lipe, clinched the South Suburban Cham-
pionship and brought forth such stars as Iohn Luttrell, William Stanley, Russell Ahrens. Frank
Arlaskus, Robert Bauman, Iohn Sullivan and Ed Shea.
The basketball championship, which the Lipemen won by virtue of eleven wins and one
defeat, showed Thornton's superiority over other teams in the South Suburban League and in
the Regional Tourney.
Not to leave swimming out of the spotlight, Thornton captured the 1939 League title and de-
veloped Renaud Bennett, that year's outstanding swimmer who made excellent time in the 100
and 220 yard free style. Ann Alexander set the state record in the Illinois High School Girls
Telegraphic Swimming Meet for the twenty yard crawl.
"Seven Keys to Baldpate," Girls and Boys Club play, earned high praise while the senior
class play "Skidding" was deemed a triumphant feat. Included in the cast of "Skidding" were:
Roberta Mott, Henry Ingwersen, Gloria Van Wormer, Paul Clark, Norma Siejna, Marshall Ien-
sen, William Stanley, Vince Swearingen, Doris Lloyd, and Dorothy Rozene.
The Iunior-Senior Hallowe'en party gave students an enjoyable time while the Iunior-Sen-
ior prom proved to be an even more gala affair.
Debaters were extremely successful in their field, and Paul Clark claimed outstanding
ability in oratory by winning first place in the state and second in the national oratorical con-
Honors in music were won by Gayle Choate, oboe, La Verne Graff, flute, Robert Parish, ma-
rimba, Bayard Stevenson, alto clarinet, and Robert Stokes and George Hayes of the brass
The year also brought scholastic honors to ambitious seniors. Included in the list of first
semester all A students were Margie Birkholz, Margaret Chaney, Paul Clark, James Daanen,
Doris Redding, Bayard Stevenson, Gloria Van Wormer, and Dorothy Zilsberger. Norma Barna,
Naomi Fork, La Verne Graff, Gene Klauk, Wanda Marciniak, Robert McCoy, Phyllis Ogden,
and William Stanley were all A and one B students.

An eventful third year was spent in Thornton by the class of '40 under the supervision
of Mr. T. R. Birkhead, junior class principal. An all-boy group of officers was chosen with
Raymond Vincent as the leader and Paul Gouwens, Claude Anderson, Harry Rinkema and
Howard Ursettie to assist him.
The first big event of the year for these upper classmen was the Junior-Senior semi-
masquerade party held October 29 in the Little Theatre. The Iunior-Senior prom, held at
the Lincolnshire Country Club, brought even a larger crowd and proved to be a gala affair.
It is a tradition at Thornton to have the May Queen and her court elected from the junior
class by all the girls of the school. Lois Reich was selected the Queen with Norma Bugh the
Maid of Honor. The court was composed of Margaret Algar, lean Birks, Carolyn Doll, Marjorie
Cooke, Mary Guild, Caryl Hobbs, Marjorie Lloyd, Iean Olson, Iean Scupham and Margaret
In athletics the junior class starred by having both basketball leaders, lightweight captain.
Howard Ursettie, and the heavyweight captain, Raymond Vincent, from their class.
Both Mary Guild on piano and Carrie-lean Silver on flute won first place in the state band
contest and were recommended to the regional contest. William Phillips, member of both
the cornet trio and the brass quartet, was also recommended.
Many of the Iuniors were scholastically outstanding. Mary Ann Pickrel won third prize in
a state essay contest and later in the year was adjudged to have written the best essay
among 2,400 submitted. Those students receiving honors for the first semester were Warren
Claussen, William Crowder, Henry D. DeYoung, lean Olson, Iames Phillips, Carrie-lean Silver,
Howard Ursettie, Vera Waldschmidt, and Robert Zeilenga.

Last year a group of students who were commonly known as "Freshies" or "Greenies"
entered High School for a four years' flight. During their first year they kept their mouths open,
depending upon their teachers to bring them a bite of education. These new students looked
to the upperclassmen for leadership and, little by little, started to try out their own wings.
By the end of the first year they had learned to think and act for themselves.
Last September many of them came back, but some found jobs and others transferred to
different schools. Likewise, many new students joined the class. Last year's freshmen are
now sophomores and show an amazing difference. Instead of speaking of general science
and other first year subjects, they now talk in the higher tenns of mathematics and biology.
No longer do these students feel unwanted and unimportant, for they have now reached
the rank of sophomores.
Not only have second-year students attained high scholastic achievements, but they
have taken part also in extra-curricular activities. The band claims many sophomore mem-
bers, and many sophomores belong to the numerous clubs. Sophomore girls have taken an
active part in the Girls Club, as have the boys in the Boys Club and its different branches.
Each homeroom has its Boys Club representative who serves the Club by selling tickets for
its social functions and assists in many other ways.

Small in size, but mighty in numbers and intelligence, Thornton's largest freshman class
started their high school career this year.
The first semester glided by smoothly under the direction of Mr. C. R. Maddox, freshman
class principal. At the beginning of the second semester Iohn McConnell was elected to
head the class for the remainder of the year. Dave Staehling, Paul Phillips, Betty Birkholz, and
Frank Bauman were chosen to aid him.
"Slack not in scholarship" seemed to be the motto of the freshman class with Howard
Adler, Mary Io Clark, Iane Herthel, Paul Phillips, Marie Zielstra, Betty Courtney, Robert
Hayes, Virginia Crain, and Ruth Dalenberg ranking high for the first semester.
Frank Bauman tfollowing in the steps of Brother Bobl did his duty to his class and his
school in athletics. In the basketball tournaments at Bloom and Ioliet, he stepped into the
place of his brother, who was out because of injuries.
On May 12 the annual freshman party was held. The class officers, together with Betty
Ann Hazelhurst and Ioann Bierovic, helped to make the frolic a success and to give the
freshmen a start on the social program of their class.
In all school activities from scholarship to frolics, the freshmen have been a model and
an inspiration to the rest of the students.

A rush of wind and a streak of blur can mean only one thing. It is one of those new
little freshmen who has not yet found that he can walk rather leisurely and still reach class in
the appointed five minutes.
A word of advice, if permissiblegthe freshman often feels as though he is unimportant.
He can hardly wait until his sophomore year, or better still, until he becomes an upperclass-
man. The upperclassmen and graduates will tell him that his freshman year will mean a
great deal to him when he reaches his goal and looks back. Let the freshman enjoy his first
year at Thornton, enjoy it in all its new and mysterious splendor.
The seniors are told that they could never realize just how much the freshman tries to
pattern himself after them, but many are lessons the seniors could leam from the freshman
if they just stopped to consider the good points that the freshman class deserves to have noticed.

The Chorus is made up of seventy voices, boys and
girls combined, under the direction of Miss Irene Olson.
This organization is in its first year. In past years there
have been separate boys' and girls' glee clubs meeting
during different periods.
The Chorus spends the third period each day prac-
tising its songs, and extra time is spent if a special pro-
gram is to be given. Various clubs and organizations
of Harvey and Homewood have asked the Chorus to
sing for them especially during the Christmas season.
This year the members carried out the custom of singing
for the students on the last school day before Christmas
vacation. The accompanist for the Chorus is David

composed of those who have good voices,
for whom there is no place in the Chorus, as

social events, sang selections at the Christ-
mas and Spring Concerts. The accompanist
for the Glee Club is Mary Guild.

Thornton's band, under the direction of Mr. D. C.
Allen, is one of our greatest sources of school
pride. What would a football game be without the
band marching at the half? The rolling of the
drums, the high-stepping drum-major and the
rhythmic march music all add to its color.
Not only has the band been acclaimed at Thorn-
ton, but also throughout the state. At the state con-
test, held this year at the La Salle-Peru High School
in La Salle, Illinois, it received a group 1 rating
and many soloists received honors.
La Verne Graff, having been awarded national
championship in 1938 on both flute and piccolo,
went directly to the National this year. Ioseph
Monroe, Bayard Stevenson, Miriam Davis, and
Robert Parish won lst place in the District and
State and were recommended to the National.
Carrie lean Silver and Gayle Choate won group
l rating in the District and the State. Several quar-
tettes and trios also received honors.
The annual band concert was held on March
3rd. The band entertained a vast audience with
the "Unfinished Symphony" by Shubert, "Tales
from Vienna Woods" by Strauss, and other notable
Schreiber, Winitred Gardiner, Louis Stubbs, Willis Creps,
George Hayes, Merle Dickelman, Jack Iacobs. Front row:

Iournalism students who are seniors of superior scholarship cmd have an excellent Enge
lish record prepared the publications under the direction of Mr. P. W. McDowell, journalism
instructor. and Mr. O. F. Umbaugh, adviser of publications.
The weekly paper undertook many changes in an endeavor to furnish the school with the
best attainable record of events and entertainment. As a means of sharing honors, a rotating
staff was used. Staff members are active in the Greater Chicago Scholastic Press Guild, the
National Scholastic Press Association, the Illinois State High School Press Association, and
Quill and Scroll, international honor society.
A five column paper was introduced for the first six months of the school year. At Christ-
mas a splendid eight-page paper printed in green accomplished a complete sell-out. Later
a new streamlined four column paper was introduced.
The art staff followed an informal plan of layout for the yearbook as an attempt to create
something new. Publishing an annual and a newspaper places a great responsibility on the
students. thus giving them a view of what life requires.

The Boys Club is governed by a student board of ten members under the supervision and
advice of the dean of boys.
The boys of the upper three classes elect their own representatives to the board. The
seniors elect four members, the juniors three, and the sophomores two. The freshman member
is appointed by the Board of Control, subject to the approval of the dean.
The Boys Club officers are elected from the members of this Board. The president must be
a senior and the first vice-president is always a junior.
At the close of each school term the president of the Boys Club, at a Boys Club assembly,
gives the Club Constitution to the iirst vice-president, to guard until school re-opens. This
ceremony has become one of the traditions of the Club.
All boys in the high school are members of the Boys Club. The Club sponsors many
activities. When death visits the family of a member, the Club sends flowers. In conjunction
with the Girls Club they present an annual play to raise funds for the Boys and Girls Club
assemblies. They present an annual Father and Son Stag.
The Boys Club sponsors several other organizations. They are the hall guards, the bus
guards, the Hi-Y, the Chess and Checker Club, the safety squad, the Lettermen's Club, and

The homeroom representatives attend to Boys Club business in the various homerooms.
They collect dues and sell tickets to Boys Club affairs. When there is a death in the family
of a member, the representative notifies Mr. Umbaugh. The Boys Club then sends flowers.
The annual stag, held this year on February 9th, offers fathers and sons an excellent
chance to become better acquainted as well as an evening of exceptional entertainment. As
usual all details of the stag were left to the stag committee. Marshall Iensen was chairman.
The shops and biology rooms were opened so that the guests might inspect them before
the main event of the evening. Simultaneously a sound movie was shown in the Little theatre
and the swimming team gave a demonstration in the school pool.
At 8 p. m. the fathers and sons assembled in the auditorium. The dads were welcomed by
William Stanley and Mr. George Gilley replied for the fathers. Mr. Bradner of the history

The Girls Club of Thornton was organized by Miss Frances Gordon in Ianuary, 1916.
Before that time she had conducted a Camp Fire for high school girls: but, because there were
so many girls anxious to participate in it, a Girls Club was started. The purpose of this organ-
ization is to promote enterprises contributing to the enrichment of the lives of the high school
girls. It is governed by a Board of Control under the supervision of Miss Wilson, dean of girls.
This year's officers consist of a president, Virginia Treen, who presides over all meetings of
the Board of Control and the Girls Club, a vice-president, Norma Bugh, who assists the presi-
dent, a secretary, Alice Rudulph, who records all meetings, a treasurer, Gayle Choate, who
attends to all receipts and expenditures. Besides these, there is a speaker of the Council,
Dorothy Agnell, who presides over its meetings. There is one member of this Council in each
homeroom. The Council is concerned with the matters of welfare pertaining to the club and
is designed to make leaders conscious of the numerous problems of the organization.
ln each homeroom there is a Division Chairman. Chairmen are presided over by Esther
Kramer, the speaker of this organization. These girls keep the attendance of the other girls in
their homerooms and report all absentees to the Girls Club. Then when a girl is absent three
days or more, a cheery note is sent her, by the secretary of Attendance, or in case of a death
in her immediate family, flowers are sent.
The Board of Control assumes responsibility in all matters pertaining to the Girls Club.
It determines the policies of the club and transacts business for it. The membership consists
of three representatives from the Freshman class, four from the Sophomore class, five from the
Iunior class and six from the Senior class.

marshals, and secretaries of attendance.
The hostesses take charge of visitors who come to our school.
They show them around, introduce them to the teachers, and
make them feel as much at home as possible.
The secretaries do the clerical and stenographical work that
is always necessary in so large a club as the Girls Club.
The custodians have charge of the Girls Club property and
see that everything in the office is neat and orderly.
The marshals preside at the assembly. They open the doors,
show the girls to their seats, and generally keep order.
The secretaries of attendance record the absentees on the
attendance slips turned in by the division chairmen. They
write letters to the girls who are sick, or in case of a death, the
Girls Club sends flowers.

Workman, who was crowned by the previous year's Queen, Bette Hansen.
Teas are an important factor oi the Girls Club. They include one for the mothers, one for
the faculty, two for the honor students and several for the board of control.
The junior service award, a purple and White bar pin, is given to girls who have won their
white and purple "T" pins during their freshman and sophomore years respectively, and who
have participated in some outstanding service during their junior vear. They must have a clear
title in the junior class and must pass a test on the history, constitution and ideals ofthe Girls
At a scholarship assembly held every semester, girls who have received an A in tour
solids for one semester receive a key pin with one purple bar: and for every semester after
that, another bar is added. When she completes tive semesters of A's, she is given a gold
key. If a girl attains seven semesters of A's, her name is engraved on the Scholarship cup
kept in the Dean's office.
The Activity Point Commission records the activities of the Freshmen and Sophomores.
When they earn 40 points, the Freshmen receive a white "T" pin and the Sophomores a pur-
ple "T" pin.

' Very year it is a tradition of the
rnton Girls Club to have a Fresh-
an Stand-Up. It is so called, because
lx jhe freshmen girls especially are wel-
comed, and so many girls are present
that they cannot sit but must stand.
Each Stand'Up is started with a gen-
erallhandshaking around the gym,
which is followed by the crowning of
lthe Stand-Up Queen who is always the
president of the Girls Club. This year's
queen, Virginia Treen, was given her
pillow by the freshman representative
Mitzi Meurisse. Virginia was robed by
the sophomore representative, Betty
Mills, crowned by the junior repre-
sentative Marjorie lohnson, and given
her scepter by the senior representa-
tive, Fern Seitz.
Following the crowning of the queen
the freshmen are given favors, and then
stunts are presented by each class.
After they are finished, a grand march
takes place and refreshments are
served. The rest of the afternoon is
spent in dancing.

Coach Thielen B. Huddlestun's ponies
finished the 1938-39 season with three
wins and nine defeats to their credit to
take sixth place in the South Suburban
Badly crippled through the loss of last
year's regulars, they were unable to
form a clicking combination. Hopes for
a championship team in the lightweight
division soon dwindled.
After dropping their first game to
Blue Island ...,
South Suburban League
Ioliet, there followed defeats by Fenger,
Ioliet and Bloom. The ponies then took
Fenger and won their first league game
from Lockport by a score of 23 to 21.
Calumet City and Argo stopped the
lights, but they came back to show
some real form in defeating Kankakee
29 to 24.
The South Suburban leaguers ran
rough-shod over the Purple for the next
six games. The lights whipped Blue
Island in their final game and avenged
a 27 to 25 defeat in a "sudden death"
overtime which they suffered earlier in
In a non-conference game a combina-
tion team of lights and heavies dropped
a 26 to 24 decision to the five from
Only two regulars, Louis Macaluso
and lack McPherrin, are graduating this
year. The three regulars upon which
Coach Huddlestun will build next year's
team are Bud Ursettie, Dave Staehling
and Bob Martin.

A string of eleven victories against
one defeat gave Coach K. I. Lipe's
Purple Cloud undisputed possession of
the South Suburban league crown.
The Lipemen broke even in their six
non-league games, defeating Fenger
twice and Decatur once while dropping
two to Ioliet and one to Roosevelt.
The sole conference defeat felt by the
Wildcats came on the Chicago Heights
floor at the hands of Bloom, their tradi-
tional rivals, with a 32 to 20 score.
The Thornton quintet was by far the
largest in the league, averaging about
six feet one inch in height and weighing
185 pounds. This advantage in height
was an important factor in their cham-
The season's campaign of eighteen
games netted the Lipemen fourteen vic-
tories and 576 points while their oppo-
nents won four games and scored 451
Thornton breezed through the regional
tourney at Chicago Heights, taking Blue
Island 32 to 25 in the quarter finals,
Lockport 31-27 in the semi-finals, and
Ioliet 24 to 20 in the deciding game.
They were put out in the first round of
the Ioliet sectional by Coal City with a
38 to 34 score.
Ray Vincent is the sole survivor of
the championship quintet. Ray led the
scoring this year with 159 points and
will probably be the spark plug of next
year's offense. Coach Lipe will prob-
ably build the rest of the squad from the
freshman second team which he was
grooming this year.
Numerous factors have given the 1939 golf s d h
qua c ampionship hopes. In pre-season
rounds Mr. Beeman, olf c h '
g oac , came up with four 70 shooters who provided a backbone for
a good team.
The golfers revealed their abilities in their first three h
matc es, beating Lockport 9Vz to
8 fz, Hammond 12 to 9, and Calumet City lBVz to IV2.
The boys on the green below comprised the playing team. Reserves were Willard
Schmidt, Henry Ingwersen, Francis De Vries, Hardy Griffith, and Fred Templin.
The Purple net team, under Coach F. W. Ring, looked forward to a successful season
after winning its first three matches. It also sent four men, Bill Stanley, Norman Bama, Russell
Ahrens, and Bill Scupham to the semi-finals of the state district tournament at Ioliet.
They will meet opposition from Lockport, Argo, Blue Island, and Calumet City, and on
Tune 3, will enter the South Suburban league meet at Lockport.
Stanley, Barna and Ahrens played singles. Doubles teams were Clark and Scupham,
and Phillips and Berschinski. Bill Meyer, Harold Geffert and Robert Naas were reserves.

The 1938 track season opened on April 2 with the Oak Park relays. The sprint medley
relay team of Claude Kinsey, Iack Iones, Lew Hammers and Nat Iohnson placed fifth.
A dual meet at home on April 27 with Calumet City resulted in a victory for Thornton
by a one-sided score of 86 to 45. The meet was marked by Kinsey's time of 10.1 seconds for
the 100 yard dash, a time which he bettered later on in the season.
In the first travelling meet, April 29, Thornton was defeated by Kankakee's larger and
more experienced team.
The Purple lost to Ioliet, May 3, the winners tallying B5 points to Thornton's 59. lack
Ginter won the low hurdles, Kinsey the dashes, Lew Hammers the 880 and Iim Spencer the
Thornton suffered their third straight loss on May 5, University High winning with a five
point margin, 59 to 54. Bob Bauman threw the discus 116 feet for first place.
Thornton won fourth place in the district meet at Kankakee, May 13, and in the final
dual meet of the season they succeeded in defeating the Bloom runners, 66 to 47.
The senior squad placed third behind University High and Kankakee in the conference
meet at Stagg Field, May 28. Kinsey tied the South Suburban league record for the 100
yard dash winning the event in 10 seconds flat. He also tied the League record for the 220
with a time of 22.2 seconds. To climax his day's work, Kinsey broke a record of ten years
standing for the 440 with a time of 50.2 seconds.
Graduation will leave Coach K. I. Lipe with relatively few experienced trackmen with
which to build next year's team.
Although handicapped by a shortage of returning lettermen, Coach K. lack Lipe succeeded
in building a championship junior track team in 1938.
The boys who brought the trophy to Thomton are Raymond Vincent, weights, Iohn
Storrie and Dennis Gilley, jumping events: Don Lassen, 660 and dashes: Rex Iones and
Robert Walker, dashmen: and Robert McCoy, hurdler. The relay team was composed of
Iones, Vincent, Walker and Lassen.
Thornton overwhelmed Calumet City in its first home meet April 27, and defeated
Kankakee in the first out-of-town meet, April 29.
When University High came on May 5, Thornton suffered its only loss of the season by
a 54-33 score.
The relay team won first place at the district meet held at Kankakee, May 13, and Vincent
took fourth in the shot put.
Thornton ran over Bloom, its ancient rival, at Chicago Heights on May 17.
The Purple, scoring 52 V2 points, won the league meet, held at Stagg Field, May 28. This
meet saw Thornton smash a fonner league record of 48 seconds flat for the junior 440 yard
relay, the local boys doing it in 47.4 seconds.
The Thomton baseball squad, under the tutelage of
Coach Frank Froschauer, began its 1939 season with a
.250 average lor the first four league games played.
Alter suffering a non-conference loss to Morton. the
Thornton nine took its first South Suburban league game
April 27 from Lockport in a 22 to 1 Wildcat slugfest.
On May 5 Thomton encountered the Bloom nine and
were defeated in a pitcher's duel 4 to 1. Three Bloom
runs were uneamed. The Purple clashed with Argo
May 9 but lost 12 to 9 in a slugtest lor both teams. They
also lost a return game on the Argo diamond 6 to 5.
Thornton's swimming team climaxed another success-
ful season by winning the South Suburban league cham-
pionship for the third consecutive year.
The team under the direction of Coach Frank E.
Froschauer won nine meets while losing only two. The
losses were suffered at the hands of Danville and
Horace Mann of Gary. Thornton swimmers amassed a
season's total of 424 points against 302 for their

Bob Bauman was elected to lead the Lettermen's club, Thornton's main athletic
organization, this year. Other officers were Iohn Sullivan vice president, Ray Vincent
secretary-treasurer, and Iohn Luttrell sergeant-at-arms.
Membership in the club is confined to the boys who were awarded letters in football,
basketball, baseball, track, swimming, tennis, and golf. The membership totals about 75.
Funds for the club are realized from the sales of ice cream and candy at all the home
An annual banquet is held at which all letter winners are announced. At the banquet,
various Big Ten and other well known coaches are the guest speakers. A picnic and initia-

The Girls Athletic Association tends to make leaders, good sportswomen, fair players
and independent girls.
The girls used the entire year for their activities, as they shun the evil of idleness. Basket-
ball skill was matched at a playday held Ianuary 28, when Thornton's junior-senior girls beat
Calumet City 13 to 10 and tied Bloom 9 to 9. The freshman-sophomore girls beat Bloom 12
to 10 and were defeated by Calumet City 8 to 9.
At special events during the year the members receive awards which are heartily earned.
The first award is a 3" set of numerals corresponding to the year the girls are graduating.
After greater effort the 3" T is awarded. Last is the 5" T which is the highest honor a G.A.A.
member can receive.
A number of motion picture films have been purchased this year. They will be left at
Thornton for future use and to build up the library of films for the Association.
When swimming stars like Ann Alexander, whose skill is the result of vigorous prac-
tice, hold the state record for five years, the G.A.A. can well be proud. Soccer has cultivated
a number of stars. The following girls have played together since their freshmen year and
have never lost a game: Edith Mitchell, Ann Alexander, Norma Hillyer, Iune Kallestad, Lillian
Hodge, Evelyn Mullen, Margaret Kelo, Ethel Bookham, and Violet Fontechia.
