From continent to continent."

ff 1937 'f
Remember when we had to wear
The earphones on our head-
And, just when we got int'rested,
The fool thing would go dead?
Everyone would wait his turn
For the longest time it seemedg
But it was worth it when it came
As some soul fulfilling dream.
Earphones were the Hrst to go
In the wake of its advancement:
Loudspeakers took their place at on
And kept usin enchantment.
More tubes, more wires, more everything
Made it grow in shape and size:
But it soon began to shrink again
As men became more wise.
And now today it is compact
In shape and form and size:
When we look back from whence it came
We wonder at its rise.
lt has its place in every home
Whether rich or poor:
Its value to the human race
Will evermore endure.
If we'd look into the future
To iind out what's in store,
l know that we'd discover
Television in the fore.
For this great stride in radio
Very soon will come
And be right here for everyone
To have in every home.
The Nations spread around the globe
All seem like friends next door.
Across the wide expanse between
Go messages galore.
The miracle that's ours today-
The blessings that it brings
The help, the cheer, momentous news
On swift and silent wings!
So now we'll ponder for a bit
Of the bounties it has brought,
The many talents it has found,
The lessons it has taught.
Without it in these modern times
What a tiresome world we'd be!
I really think its death would spell
A great catastrophe!

Early in the semester this energetic group of young men set about getting
subscriptions for Tilden's yearbook, the Craftsman. Under the direction of
Mr. John Butler these salesmen procured so many subscriptions that by the
time the book went to press nine-hundred copies had been sold+more than
any year since 1927.
This corps of fifty "go-getters" promoted sales by visiting all the divisions,
by placing posters in the corridors and rooms, and by articles and bulletins in
the Times. To these hustling fellows goes the reward of a job Well done finan-
ciallyg for the Craftsman balance sheet is black, and the incoming Caftsman
staff will find a neat bank account with which to begin its efforts.
June 1937 sees the close of another successful year for the Times Staff. The
year's outstanding feature was Tilden's page in the Chicago American. A few
nights before the issue was put on the press, most of the editors were present in
the composing room at Hearst Square supervising the make-up and form. The
Times received an Honor rating from the National Scholastic Press Association
after they had critically analyzed it. This semsester the Times was fortunate in
having for its news editor the best citizen of Tlilden and also the valedictorian of
the graduating class, Carl Buchhass. About the middle of the semester the staff
entered two of its members, Michael Hinko and Glenn Robinson, in the annual
extemporaneous contest held by the Greater Chicago Scholastic Press guild.
Promotions were announced at the staff party held in the school lunchroom.
Kenneth Geppinger, senior class president of the class of February 1938, was
selected to fill the place of the editor-in-chief, Glenn Robinson. Michael Hinko,
replaced Carl Buchhass as news editor. Other promotions on the editorial' staff
were: Otto Paltynek, sports editor: Otto Picklap, editor of page one3 Roger
Brown, of page two and Bruce Ranney, editor of page three. Members of the
business staff who received promotions are: Edwin Rydbeck, who replaced George
Pauset as business managerg John Pierce who will be in charge of exchangesg
Charles Peller who will get the advertising with the assistance of H. Ast, Harry
Beste will remain as assistant business manager and Norman Wood, circulation
manager with J. Bonshire, Tom Pauset, R. Bedell and R. Meagher as his assistants.
This June the staff will lose through graduation, -Glenn Robinson, Carl
Buchhass, Ted Mikos, Charles Gibson, Joseph Pranek, Jim Kuehnke, Clarence
Lloyd, Don Youmans, Howard Klooster, and William Reigel.
The aim of every Tilden student is to belong to the Senior Council, sponsored
by Mr. Wasserman. Seniors who have shown 'by their scholarship, eXtra curri-
cular activities, and service to the school, that they are entitled to membership,
may join the Senior Council.
Besides its many other activities, the Senior Council conducts a freshman as-
sembly, put on each semester by the members to acquaint new students with Til-
den and to give them a better understanding of their school. So far, these assem-
blies have been very successful and have done much to aid the freshmen,
The oliicers of the Senior Council are: Kenneth A. Johnson, president: Richard
Walker, vice-president: and Leonhard Holmbo, secretary.

THE HCJNOR CLUB
As exclusive as a coast-to-coast radio broadcast, and as much of an honor as
invitation to participate in a radio debate is a membership in our Honor Club.
The Master of Ceremonies or President's position was ably iilled by Eugene Gor-
man. Aiding him were two secretaries, Thomas Rimas and Michael Hinko, and
a treasurer, Carl Buchhass. These officers and officers of preceding semesters have
so enlivened the meetings of this club, that the meetings are awavs Well attended.

THE HONOR CLUB
The exclusive membership spoken of, is obtained by securing final grades aver-
aging Mem'bers of the club are given a preference over others in the selection
of boys to lill such positions as: office guards, library or bookloom guards, and
assistants to departmental heads. On occasions such as Pather's Night, P.T.A.
Dinners, or Shop exhibits, the members usually act as honor guards.
An honor, or scholarship letter, in the form of a double "T", is awarded to
any boy achieving membership in the club for four semesters excepting lB.

C. l. C.
The Civic Industrial Club, the largest organization in the school claiming
every student as a member, has a congress to which every room sends a delegate,
and an executive council. In the executive council there are eight members, two
representing each year. Much like our National government the congress has a
president presiding over it and executive council under the control of the vice-presi-
dent. Such an organization represents a fine example of democratic student gov-
ernment. Under the capable leadership of its officers and helpful guiding hand
of its sponsor the club has been able to accomplish many things of direct benefit
to the students. Through the efforts of the Ways and Means committee and
Buildings and Grounds committee the organization was able to install signs on
the stairs to direct traffic, repair faucets and soap equipment in the lavatories, and
install soap in the shops. Perhaps the most outstanding achievement of the or-
ganization this year was the printing of 8,000 identification cards. A card was
given to every student as a means of identification in case of an accident, and
there are enough cards to give out to the students entering the building next
fall. The committees, without which the C.l.C. could not have functioned in
such efficient manner, have been led by such prominent Tildenites as George
Larson, Glenn Jones, and Warren Groundwater. The officers who carried on an
extensive program to improve school conditions are: Robyn Schrader, Presi-
dent, Thomas Berteau Vice-President: Laurence Snodgrass, Secretary, and Wil-
liam Boudry, Treasurer. Much of the success and influence of the organization is
due to the able guidance of Stephen G. NVood, the faculty sponsor.

THE GUARD SYSTEM
This is station T.T,H.S. broadcasting from the two kilowatt television
station in the guard oilice off the main lobby.
In the television picture panel above you see the boys that run the Tilden Tech
guard system. These boys are chosen according to their ability to lead as well as
their scholastic standing.
This guard system is under the expert supervision of Mr. Tapley and Mr.
Sessler as faculty sponsors. William Molitor, chief, and Raymond Raiglow,
assistant chief, hold down the positions of student executives. Under these
executives are the marshals, one for each period. Their job is to supervise disci-
pline during the period to which they are assigned. Under each marshal are four
assistants, one for each floor, who take the attendance of the guards, and to see
that every boy passing through the halls has a pass,
Another phase of the guard system is to keep a watchful eye on the automobiles
parked around the school so that they will not be tampered with.
It has been said by high authority that Tilden has the most efficient guard
system of any school in Chicago.

Tilden Tech's R.O.T.C. Unit is well known for its Championship Picked
Drill Squad. For three consecutive years Tilden Tech has been victorious in the
City Squad Competition.
In this year's competition which was held at the l3lst Infantry Armory,
Tilden's Squad was last to participate among twenty-seven other high schools.
At the time they were to be inspected, Sullivan High School, who placed second,
had the high score of 955 points, which was very high for such competition.
Tilden went on the floor with the determination to win and made the astonishing
score of 981 points out of a possible l0OO. This was the highest score ever earned
by any squad in competitive drill.
The squads were judged by selected regular Army ollicers in Personal Appear-
ance and Drill.

EXHIBITION DRILL TEAM
The Exhibition Drill Team, commanded by Cdt. Major Eisler, has a very
unique drill and manual. It is the only recognized team of its kind in the city.
Under the leadership of lst. Lt. Naperalski. O.R.G. Tilden's Rifle Team this
year has shown great improvement. Their scores in the Morgan Park Military
Academy Competitive Shoot were 400 points higher than last year's score.
CLEAN-UP CAMPAIGN .,
One of the outstanding programs on station T.T.H.S. is the annual broadcast
of the Clean-Up Campaign sponsored by the Chicago Association of Commerce.
This program started as a local hookup in the Chicago high schools, but it has
become so popular that now it is broadcast over a nation-wide network.
These programs originate in the Chicago Association of Commerce with the
high schools as the main outlet. It is the high school committee's duty to publi-
cise the campaign with letters, speeches and posters and to render aid to the co-
operating grammar schools.
Tilden has been quite successful in its competition with other high schools
having won numerous awards and the section championship for two successive
Robert Long, the assistant chairman last year, led the campaign as student ad-
viser this year With Michael Hinko and Robert Masek sharing the co-chairmen
positions. Mr. Arthur Steigely continued to give his outstanding service as faculty
This year the campaign constructed a large billboard showing the appearance
of a clean-up town and advertising clean-up week. Paul Andrews did most of the
art work in the construction of this project with the biology and shop depart-
ments contributing their service.
As their part of the annual Tilden Circus, the Clean-Up Campaign presented
"I'i1den's Own Amateur Show. The proceeds from this show were used to linance
the campaign with the 'balance going to the C,I.C.
Frank Cvitkovich, Paul Babirak and William Brazinskas should also receive
praise for their outstanding work in handling correspondence and publicity.
THE TILDEN TECH CONCERT ORCHESTRA
The Concert Orchestra with a membership of eighty students has achieved
a Worthy and reputable name for itself, receiving in the annual orchestral contest
an excellent rating. The orchestra has had numerous invitations from both local
and out-of-district elementary and high schools requesting concerts, musicales,
and ensemble programs. One of the most unusual and pleasing invitations Qwith-
out the slightest doubtj, was that for the semi-classical concert we played at
the Lucy Flower High Schoolg the program given is termed semi-classicl because
of the tremendous applause of the delightful audience which caused the failing
heart of Mr. Fischer to say, "Boys, We're going to play Pink Lady and Alex-
anler's Rag-Time Band." And did they play itl. . .No need for questioning.
We should be very grateful that We have such a VERSATILE person as Mr.
Fischer for our conductor.

All in all the boys are doing pretty well. Their latest appearance was at
the Tilden Music Revue Where they played a line program of music selected from
the Works of the masters. Tilden's orchestra is always on call for assembly pro-
grams and other school affairs, and lends variety and entertainment to our school
TILDEN TECH CONCERT BAND
Our Band is the finest on the South Side. Under the direction of Captain
Howard Stube it has a membership exceeding ninety students. It is a very useful
organization in keeping up the spirit of the school by playing at the football
games, at the school pep-assemblies, and at the various kinds of programs.
There are many boys in the Band who belong to the Musician's Union and
play professionally regularly. From this Band spring up many different smaller
organizatons such as brass quartettes, woodwind ensembles, etc. which make
many appearances and bring honors to the school.
A few boys worthy of mention who have been important factors in the band
are: Leo Courtmanche, National trombone winner of l936 who is now play-
ing over the radio professionally. Robert De Tolve, the l'ittle Italian clarinetist
who has played solo clarinet for four semesters, started his musical career in
his second year. With only three years of Tilden training he has turned profes-
sional, a master of difficult solos such as Rigoletto anl Puritani. Larry Budz,
young saxophonist, also plays professionally and he also received most of his
training here. He has been playing solo sax for six semesters in Tilden's Band.
Harold Huttner and Dave Ridderhoff have been two very im.portant characters
in the Band for their solo cornet work and helping out the rest of the boys
during the after school rehearsals. Last, but far be it least, Joseph Puchalski,
the Drum Major of the Band has worked very hard at the football games and
for the assemblies. This position next to the director is the most important of
the organization. Only the most capable and talented boy is chosen for this
This organization, offering a background for those aspiring to 'become
professionals, is one of Tilden's greatest assets.
THE SENIOR CIRCUS COMMITTEE
The huge success of the Circus was due this year, not only to the the thousands
of satisfied Visitors, but to the tremendous efforts of the group of young men
you see in the picture above. The Various committees on Programs, Publicity,
Shows, Refreshments, Guards, and Homecoming were all in charge of these in-
dustrious young men. Each one of these Committees was a major Committee
and had several committees under it.
Although all its members are not in the pictures, the Committee was compos-
ed of the following: Thomas Berteau, Ed Bozinovich, William Boudry, Charles
Buchhass, Al Charnes, William Clark, Charles Cobden, Frank Conroy, William
Costello, William Decker, Eugene Dorosz, Howard Eisler, Roy Peltz, John
Glaser, William Gudgeon, Warren Groundwater, Jerome Hieman, Kenneth
Johnson, Jim Kuehnke, Howard Klooster, Norman Knobloch, Elmer Klopke,
Charles Kunka, Robert Long, Herbert Nloede, Harold Moll, John Pepe, George
Rimkus, Glen Robinson, Jack Ross, Edwin Rydbeck Wilbert Schulz, Al Stein,
John Schwartz, Jim Troup, Luke Tribba, Roy Thrams, John Woodrich, Dean
Willcox, Robert Yocum, Gerald Zehme.
Mr. Hunter was the General Chairman in charge of Circus arrangements.
The heavy duties entrusted to him and his Committee, he discharged with great
efficiency. Tilden owes him and his co-workers a vote of thanks that the An-
nual Homecoming and Circus was such a gay, colorful and FINANCIAL suc-
The National Broadcasting Company may have its large choirs, but Tilden
has always had an excellent group of choristers. It seems that the boys who join
the choral club have a great love for music as proved by their popularity at the pro-
grams put on in the assembly hall.
There are five separate groups of choristers who meet every day, four of which
are composed of freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors and one whose mem-
bership is freshmen only. Above we have the choral group which meets ninth
period every day. For the past few years this group has been under the able direc-
tion of Mrs. Swanstrom who unfortunately for us, was transferred to Parker
during the early part of the l93 7 semester. Mrs. McGovern., the substitute teacher,
has taken over control of the group and is doing great things with them.
Prominent members of this year's group are W. Kokefer, M. Frank, C., Lewis,
J. Troup, and W. Boudry. W. Kokefer is also a proud member of the All-City
choir which is under the guidance of Dr. David Nyvall. To get the full benefit
from this club however, you must give a good deal of extra time to it, such as
appearing in operas and Tilden's annual circus.

This group of Tildenites is under the capable, effervescent guidance of Messrs.
Weiner and Walters.
The Junior and Senior Proms Which Were held in the big gym were so act-
ively promoted by these young men that the bids were all sold out days before.
The after-school socials were never more crowded than during the past year.
These dances enabled boys of all classes, freshman as Well as senior, to begin their
dancing careers. The committee's members are: Gallagher, chairman, Babirack,
Bondy, Butkovich, Chesin, Coatar, Connell, Eckhardt, Gallagher, J. Glenns,
Gioeber, Harkins, Katausky, Korenic, Long, Ludka, McCullough, McMahon,
Myer, Michalovic, Molitor, Moll, Nestler, Glsen, Paulson, Peterson, Prince,
Roseland, Ryan, Rymkus, Sauer, Simbol, Stoffer, Warren, Welin, Werner, Will-
iams and Yourell.
THE POPULAR SCIENCE SALESMEN
As energetic, aspiring, and hustling young men as you'll find anywhere, are
these, the Popular Science Salesmen of Tilden Tech.
Although they are not a very large organization, their persistence in obtain-
ing sales is evidenced by the fact that each month additional copies have to be
ordered, until now these salesman are selling almost twice the number form-
erly sold per semester!
The salesmen have at their head a manager and co-manager, both of whom
serve only one semester in those oilices. The co-manager becomes the manager
when the manager's term is up. The manager and co-manager are appointed 'to
those positions by Mrs. Autha Fluke, the sponsor.
Although the number of salesmen at any one time varies from live to fifteen,
the job is open to all, freshmen and seniors alike.
An average of seven hundred copies of each. issue is sold each month, and Robert
Bach who has been manager and co-manager sold 250 copies of a single issue in
his 3B semester. This remains as the all-time Tilden record.
Civic letters are awarded for every three semesters of service., but this rule is
elastic and may be expanded if a salesman does exceptionally fine work.
"We'd like to spend this hour with you-
As friend to friend we're sorry we're through."

ARX AND ARTS
, Z M g if --,
ARX AND ARTS
This is station T.T.H.S. broadcasting. The Arx and Arts Club sponsored
by Mr. Paul D. McCurry and composed of Architectural and Commercial Art
students is on the air.
Harold Sogin, President of the club, has gained fame at Tilden by solving a
very ticklish mathematical problem that required hours of brain racking concen-
tration. Other officers of the club are Willard Cole, Vice-President, Eugene Wal-
per, Secretary, and John Pardini, Treasurer.
This group, although relatively small in membership, ranks as one of the lead-
ing clubs in the school and its members take an actve part in practically all of the
school's activities. One of the greatest achievements of this organization is the
bloodcurdling Chamber of Horrors, one of the feature attractions of Tilden's
Annual Homecoming and Circus.
Another outstanding accomplishment of this peppy group is its efiiciency in
getting its members employment in the architectural field. In the past few years
many Tilden architects have been aided in securing positions by Mr. Arnold N.
Lurie, head of Tilden's drawing department. They, in turn, showed their appre-
ciation by aiding future graduates in obtaining employment.
Appearing in the Tilden Tech Times is an architectural column called the
"Hippopotenuse." In this column the activities and achievements of this organi-
zation appear in every edition of our lively newspaper. Articles about former
Tilden architects also appear revealing their progress in the various fields of the
industrial world in which they are engaged.

Representing the artistic extra-curicular activities of Tilden is the Limner
Club. This club, sponsored by Miss Bertha Bohman, offers assistance to any stud-
ent desiring to further his artistic abilities and does not restrict him in any way
from expressing himself, allowing him to choose whatever medium of Art he
The scope of the clu'b's activity is almost unlimited, extending from the
sketchng of nature in the parks to the production of school signs, and from por-
trait painting to the participation in art contests. Presently the members are en-
gaged in a competition of the Scholastic Awards.
Two of the most prominent members of the Limner Club are Albert Kitzman
and William Gudgeon who are not in the above photograph but appear in the

Stereoptician views of LaBelle France were shown. Harold Sogin, commenta-

THE GERMAN CLUB
Sprechen Sie Deutsch? Students who do, or who have had at least one semester
of German, are eligible for membership in the German Club, sponsored by Miss
Rose J. Seitz. The purpose of the club is to provide social activities among stu-
dents interested in German. Singing of German songs, short plays in German, and
music by the members assure all those attending the meetings of a good time. Fred
Beyer, chairman of the entertainment committee, has done much to see that the
members of the club have had enough entertainment.
Last semester the ofiicers of the German Club were: Clarence Lloyd, president:
George Carson, vice-presidentg Ghulam Muthleb, treasurerg and Joseph Denk,
secretary. This semester the same oilicers were re-elected except for the position
of vice-president. Robert Kraus was elected vice-president to ill the vacancy left
by George Carson who was graduated in February.
THE PAN-AMERICAN LEAGUE
The Spanish Club, organized in October of l935, has become one of
Tilden's outstanding organizations. Until February 1937, its oflicers were as
follows: A. Groff, President: R. Cwatter, vice-presidentg R. Benson, secretary,
A. Ciprian, treasurerg W. McDonough, marshal. The present officers are:
Vasquez president, Burns, vice-presidentg D'Asto, secretaryg Bogal, treasurerg
and Newby, marshal.
In early 1937, by popular vote of its members it changed from the Spanish
Club to a branch of the Pan-American League, a national organization. Thirty
active members under the sponsorship of Miss H. Ciraybill, hold monthly meet-
ings, and their purpose is to promote interest in South and Central America.
On Pan-American Day our group contributed a costume dance to the down-
town city-wide celebration. Ever memorable is the fiesta they put on for the Tril-
den Circus in April, just one of the reasons Tilden is proud of them.

program for the air minded public the "Tilden Aero Club."
Mr. E. R. Christiansen, the chief sponsor of the club, will give you a report on
the development and progress it has made.
Mr. Christiansen: t
'iDuring the past nine years about nine hundred young aeronauts have been
initiated into this organization, and many have found places in the industry
throughout the world.
Awards are made each month for the best work done in each division and
the winner has possession of the loving cup as long as he can make the highest
score every month.
Two new divisions have been formed to specialize in gas model planes and all
metal construction. Mr. Preidman ably tutors the boys in the gas model line
whlile Mr. Stephen handles the metal contruction work. These are very popular
with the veteran pilots of the club. Our pilots not only enter all contests within
reach but fly away with ribbons in most of them,
Tours to repair shops, ground schools, and factories afford opportunity to see
how the work is done. Lectures, pictures and some social events add zest to our
With such dependable pilots as Alden Green, our president, Charles Smith,
our vice-president, Jack Greene, our secretary and treasurer, Douglas Turrell,
our chief contest man ably assisted by Elmer Klopke, is it any wonder that we go
places? That's all I have to say except that I hope you all have a successful takeoff
and a happy landing!"

On September 17, the Hrst meeting for all candidates interested in soccer was
held in room 322, after the eighth. The fundamentals of the game were explained
by Coach Blackshaw, and just before the meeting adjourned, William Walker
was elected captain of the team.
The following Monday, suits were issued to the players returning from
the previous year. After suits were issued, the players, sixty in all, reported for
practice. As time progressed, the number dwindled down to a mere twenty-two,
barely enough for practice.
Since a soccer league had not yet been formed, the team merely kept practicing.
In a month the team had played and won their first game of the season against
University High. After a postponement, the Tech team played the powerful
Mooseheart eleven and emerged the victor by a score of 2 to O. In quick succession
came games with Morton, Oak Park, Schurz and University High, all of which
were ties. A hard-fought victory over Oak Park was followed by two defeats by
Morton and Schurz. After an additional two weeks practice the team was chal-
lenged to a game by Oak Park, whom they subsequently defeated.
The season ended with the Tech team having the enviable record of four wins,
four ties, and two defeats.
A few of the team's stars are Wm. Walker, Capt. "Shorty" LaPlace, Bruno
Zubko, Tony Bender, "Wally" Meyer, "Nibs" Bara, "Iron Man" Harkins,
"Walt" Bajorat, Joseph Parker, Steve Bandusky, "Mex" Vasquez, Richard
Walker, W. Soderstrom.
THE GOLF TEAM
Your sports announcer continues with an interview with the eminent Mr.
Mahurin, who will tell us a bit about the illustrious Tilden Tech Ciolf team.
Many people do not know that the high schools have their own system of play-
ing their matches. Coach Mahurin will explain the method used.
"Each team consists of four men from each school who are numbered from one
to four, depending on their a'bility. Number one man on each team is the team's
best man. The Tilden team is composed of the following members: Howard Dust,
Jack Hack, Ray Hanson, and Richard Cremieux as the regulars, and Robert Reger,
Julius Orlando, Willis Sheppard, and Ted Fair as substitutes. Any one of the
substitutes may challenge the regulars for his position. There are from twelve
to fifteen school teams in the golf schedule, and there are Spring and Pall Tourn-
aments each year to determine the best teams. The Spring Tournament is an eli-
mination Tournament, while the Fall Tournament is for the City Champion-
ship. Tilden has a very good chance for the championship, having won a majorcity
of games although meeting such teams as Kelly, Hyde Park, and Lindblom.
"The Nassau system of scoring is used in the matches. The winner of the first
nine holes also gets one point. The player with the most holes won out of the
eighteen receives one more point making a total of three points.
"The material of the team is very good at present and there are hopes for a
City Ti'tle. The scores made by the golf team range from 89 to 98 and this is
very good in view of the fact that they had very little opportunity to practice.
The team, well on its road to a City Title, may add greater laurels and fame to
the already famous Tilden athletic teams."

THE BASKETBALL TEAM CHeavyweightsD
Here they come, those five razzling, dazzling basketeers of Tildenl Daniel
Ryniec takes the ball off the bacleboard and gives it Edward Jesse who, in turn,
passes it to Henry Blackburn! Then the dashing William McDonough cuts in
front of him to take the ball and throw it to Lucius Thomas to try for the two
points. On the side-lines we see the outstanding coach in the city league, Charles
"Pop" Apking rooting his team on to victory. He is not alone in his cheering,
however, for we can recognize such ace players as John Alvitti, Charles Kunka,
Robert Bloomquist, Al Finn, John Washington, Edgar Foster, William Tony,
Byron, James Matthews, and William Murphy.
Let us now consider some of the outstanding players who are foremost on the
team. Lucius Thomas was far the most valuable scorer on the team, scoring
eighty-two points in four games. He was lost to the team as was Alvitti, both
being unable to play because of graduation.
Tilden's team scored more points than any other league team in the city. It
tied Farragut for the sectional title, but was defeated by Calumet in the quarter-
finals at White City. This game was the hardest fought of the current season.

the most successful Tilden teams this season. We present to you at this time
none other than that husky bunch of mermen, the Tilden Swimming Team.
Under the leadership of co-captains William Cuudgeon and Albert Kitzman.
the Seals completed a most successful season by Winning 14 out of 16 meets
With other high schools.
The Tech Mermen were under the able guidance of Coach Charles Harvey
Who replaced Mr. John Fewkes as coach. Mr. Harvey's ability as a coach is re-
flected both by the victories of his football team, which opposed Austin last year
at Soldiers' Field for the City Championship and of the swimming team.
Some of the outstandzing members of the team are: Bill Gudgeon, Lester Stepek,
Jim Holliday, Albert Kitzman, Cliff Boquist, Frank Branner, Bill Maier, Bob
Peshek, Allen Nelson, Jim Troup, and Albert Salo.
Your sports announcer would like to give you a brief idea of What the Tilden
Track Team has done this year.
Although weakened by the lack of material, the team never-the-less produced
several promising stars. It is captained by Co-Captains Hansen and Springs and
coached by Mr. Hartmann. P
ln a triangular meet between Tilden, University High School, and Hyde Park
at the University of Chicago, Tilden emerged victorious. Tilden also won second
place in the City Indoor Meet. James Matthews won second place in both the low
and high hurdles, and Springs was fifth in the low hurdles. Hansen placed iifth
in the 440-yd. dash.
The Juniors won fourth place in the City Indoor Meet. Bell was second in
the low hurdles, Prosha was fourth in the 660 and Ganza was iifth in the sixty
yard dash. The Junior relay team composed of Ganza, Prosha,McMahon and
Bell, took Hrst in the relay race.
At the American Legion Relay Carnival held May 1, 1937, Tilden Seniors
placed second, winning the beautiful shield on display in the office. The relay
team composed of Springs, Hansen, Bledsoe, and Matthews won the shuttle
hurdle relay, Springs also won first place in the running broadjump while Bled-
soe won second place in the running high jump.
The outcome of the City and State meets was not available at the time the

Kolkebeck, Lasser, Russel Herman, Kostovich, and .Iancauskas won individual
championships, While Skowronski, Randall Herman, Barbaro, D'Asto and Rym-
kus received second place awards. 1
In the first annual State Wrestling championship, Tiden did not fare so Well
Winning only a second and third place. Skowronski took second place in the l 15-
lb. division and D'Z-lsto third in the 165-lb.
Many grapplers Will be lost by graduation, but with the returning men Tilden
Will have a great chance next year.
THE GYMNASTIC TEAM
For a while Tilden was unfortunate in not having an active gymnastic team. As
the team was unable to secure a coach, it was indefinitely discontinued, much to the
regret of the gymnasts. Nevertheless, the team still had hopes of entering the City
Meet in May and practiced as often as possible after school in the small gym.
In a gymnastic meet each entrant performs one required and one optional ex-
cercise on the apparatus which consists of the horizontal bar, parallel bars, side
horse and the long horse. Each contestant is marked on a basis of 100 as perfect.
The sum of the ive highest contestants is the total points for the team. The
team having the most naturally takes first place.
Finally Mr. Hicks consented to act as coach, and with but three Weeks of prac-
tice a Senior and Novice team was formed and entered in the City Meet which was
held at the University of Chicago. The Senior team Was unable to beat Lindblom
as it had hoped but took second place, for which it deserves much credit consider-
ing the short time it had to prepare for the meet. The novice team was less suc-
cessful taking fourth place. As usual Lindblom took first place in the Senior di-
vision, something it has done for the last ll years. Senn took first place in the
The boys who formed the Senor team were: Phillip l'Peanuts" Bo-ttger, Ran-
dall Herman., Russel Herman, Clarence Lloyd, and Leo "Chesty" Stierer.

the Tribune Silver Skates award. Besides all this, he has broken two high school
The star of the Junior skates, Lehnhardt, has been found guilty of breakilig
the half mile record, winning two places in the national championships, and a
place in the State championship match.
The record for the high school mile championship has been shattered by that
old record shatterer, Mike Anlruch.
The Junior relay team, composed of Berg. Garland, John Andruch and Len-
hardt has broken the Junior high school skating record: while the Senior relay
team, made up of Baacke, Prince,Gadus and Mike Andruch has also set a new re-
cord in its division.
The skating team will be greatly handicapped next season by the loss through
graduation of Baacke, Mike Aundruch, Gadus, Lambert, Biegelbeck, Braviak,
Fritzpatrick and Calabrese, Never-the-less, the team hopes, with the leadership
of Junior Captains John Andruch and Berg, and Senior Captains Prince and All-
nutt to set new skating records for Tilden.
THE CYCLE CLUB
A year ago a Cycle Club Was organized by a group of boys interested in cvcl-
ing. Due to the fact that the same muscles are used in skaiing as in cycling, it was
natural that the members of the Skating Team should form a nucleous for the
Cycle Club. Tilden is the only school in the city with a Cycle Club, Although
other schools have tried to create an interest in cycling, they have not been suc-
An annual cycye derby has been organized at which a beautiful cup is given to
the winner of the most points while silver and bronze medals are given to those
following closely in the number of points.
The club is divided into two classes, junior and serfior. It is not necessary to
have a racing bicycle to join and many boys with stock bikes are members.
Captain of the team is Charles Becker, an outstanding rider. Other "important
members are: Tom Baacke, Peeley, Braviak, Prince, Allnutt, and Lehnhardt,
Next year the club expects to enter all open competition for cyclists in Chicago.
THE BASEBALL TEAM
"Hello, Tilden baseball fans! This is your baseball announcer greeting you
from station T.T.H.S. Our coach, Mr, Shortall, is going to inaugurate a new
system into the Tilden baseball activities this year. He is going to have three
teams instead of one, as in the past. These will be the sophomore, the junior, and
the varsity. Although the varsity team, which is composed mostly of Seniors,
plays the regular league games, there will be plenty of games for the Juniors and
Sophs. Out of the crowd of about 450 boys which turned out for the first
meeting, Coach Shortall has chosen about 25 for theVarsity."
"This season great things are expected from 'Lefty' Zintak, Joe Parker, 'Lefty'
Steinback, Novaski, Burns, and Andrew Serek, who comprise the pitching
staff of our illustrious team. In the catching department we have one of the best
in Florian Botica. Joe Kral is his faithful and efficient understudy. Tilden's
inield includes such great stars as: Sam Spinalli, Gordon Kincaid, Louis Meld-
gin, and Clarence Szredzinski. Cavorting out in the outfield are Joe Coatar, Culenn
Jacobs, and Emery. We have as substitutes such excellent players asg Joe Novak,
Glombicki, Roman, Tony Urich, Barborowitz, Bazinovich, Brown, Washing-
ton, Vesota, Mahnke, Fischer, Aragona, Blake and Lutz."
"Tilden's team is given an excellent chance of winning the Central Section
title. This is Mr. Shortall's second year as coach of the team, the team having won
six and lost only four games last year under his guidance. The team has its mana-
gerial duties placed in the capable hands of Al Finn, Peter Nemec, and Walper."
"Your announcer sincerely hopes that he has given you a few interesting
sidelights on Tilden's baseball team."

The ancient and honorable sport of bowling now can claim among its enthusi-
astic followers some 150 Tildenites who have formed a team under the guidance
of Coach Milton Raymer. Bowling was first introduced as a high school sport
by Mr. Raymer in l935, when as a teacher at the Sexton Branch, he organized
12 teams and bowled a schedule of 20 weeks. The present Tilden Bowling League
came into being in February, 1937.
Each team was given a handicap of a certain number of pins. according to its
ability to bowl. This was done in order to even up the teams, and to give each of
them a chance at the championship. The alleys at which the teams were scheduled
to bowl were the Woodlawn, Queen's, Bruck's, and Stevenson alleys. The sea-
son was divided into two Ten Week Leagues.
After the first ten weeks, the winning teams from the four alleys played an
elimination round, the players from Stevenson alley winning the champion-
ship. The members of this team were: Frank Knutzen of the Sexton Branch, Al-
bert Selix, Frank Anderson, Roy Fry, and Captain Anthony Guzinski. They in
turn will play the winning team of the second ten-week period.
Members of winning teams at the other alleys were: Monarchs of Queens:
T. Gurski, I. -Guard, W. Schultz, J. Knizer and C. Davidonis: Question Marks
of Woodlawn: J. Bandusky, J. Cunningham, A. Grass, M. O'vCmara and R.
Benson: Demons of Brucks: W. Meyer, H. Barra, H. Kolkebeck, B. McDonough
and R. Bergman.
When the bowling season has ended, a banquet will 'be given at the Englewood
Y.M.C.A. for all of those who have participated in the four leagues. Various
awards will be distributed to the winning teams at this gala affair.
The highest scores of the year are as follows:

-Yes, I've been on that team for three years.
-Since you have 'roughed it up' in wrestling, what have you done in other
-Well, in football I've been the lightest man on the team and also I've won
the All Central-Section guard position.
-I'll say that you like to 'rough it up' Emmet. Have you some ambition in
the field of athletics?
-Yes, my ambition is to coach a football team in Japan. I understand that it
is becoming very popular over there.
-I wish you all the luck in the world, Emmet, and hope that your ambitions
-Now folks I have here a very good friend of mine. Leo Diksas.
-Yes, I wrestled the state champ to a tie. Later I lost my chance for city champ-
ionship when I was defeated in my second bout.
-I know that you are modest, but I think if you hadn't acquired a cauliflower-
have you been on the basketball team?
I understand that you wrestled the state champion. Is that true?
By the way, what would you like to do after you graduate?
-I'd like very much to become a professional wrestler.-
-Oh, hello there Jackie, step right up to the mike. I want to ask you a few
questions. This is Jackie Parker, ladies and gentlemen.
How did you earn that athletic letter?
-Oh, I earned this letter by playing soccer.
-Soccer? Well that's something different. Do you get a big kick out of it:
-Yep, one of the most thrilling games I ever played in was at Oak Park. I was
playing goalie and we were leading by a score of l to 0, with just a few mlinutes
left to play. At this critical moment our team was penalized. The opposing
team kicked a penalty shot into the corner and I had to dive in and stop the ball
from hiitting our goal, thus winning the game for good old Tilden.
-That must have been quite an exciting moment. Have you participated in any
-Yes, baseball. I had quite a bit of luck in one game I played with the Tilden
team some time ago. I was pitching on the Tech Junior team. Our opponents
were a team called the 'Tigers'. I succeeded in shutting this team out with only
three scattered hits.
-That was pretty good pitching, Jackie. What's your ambition, - to be a
-No, I'd like to be a baseball pitcher in the big leagues.
-Well, just keep up at your present rate and you will be soon. -
-Now., radio audience, we have a pretty husky fellow before us now whom I
take to be a football player. Is that right, Shumaker?
-That's correct, Mr, Announcer. I like to take the ball through the line or on an
end run. I get most fun, however, out of place-kicking.
-I suppose you would like to be a professional football player?
-Yes, I would, but I'd like to play college football first.
-I think that if you keep up the good work, you will succeed.
Don't look now folks, but here comes Bill McDonough, our own midget basket-
ball player. Hey Mac, how about saying a few words over the mike? How long
have you 'been on the basketball team?
-I've been on 'it for over three years, 'but don't forget I was also on the swim
squad for two years. I guess you don't know that I was the smallest basketball
player in high school competition. I have taken part in some very exciting games:
but for that matter, I don't think that basketball :is ever a dull game.
-Thanks a lot, Mac. I hope that you will play the game of life as well as you
play the game of basketball.-Now ladies and gentlemen, I want you to listen
to one of Tidlen's foremost athletes. He is none other than B'ill Gudgeon, Co-
Captain of the swimming team and considered the fastest breast-stroke swim-
mer Tilden ever had. How about that, Bill?
-All that I can say is that I enjoy swimming very much, and that is probably
why' I can swim just a little faster than the other fellows.
-What other things do you do in the water?
-I play the part of a clown and do all sorts of fancy diving on every circus n-ight.
-I suppose that your ambiton is to be a professional swimmer?
-No, I'd rather be on the United Sates Olympic swimming team some time.
-Now folks I have succeeded in coaxing to the mike a gentleman 'by the name
of 'Tippy' Thomas. I-Ie is one of the brightest stars of the basketball team, you
know. Tell me something about yourself, Tippy,
-Well, I don't care to brag, but the records show that I've made more points
in fewer games than any other member of the team. I would like to continue
playing basketball after I leave school, for it has become quite a passion with me.
-Looming up before me now is Louis 'Tiny' Rymkus. Suppose you give us some
information about yourself, Tiny.
-You know, Mr. Announcer, some people saw me get in every one's way on
the gridiron so they gave me the title of All-Tackle. All my friends say I should
study to be a piano mover, but I would rather become a professional football
-Thank you, Louis.-
Now I would like to bring to you the fastest man in Tilden. This gentleman is
known as Tom 'Flash' Baacke. Tom, please step up here and give us a few facts
about you meteoric career.
-To tell you the truth, all I'm interested in is skating, but I understand that I
won some honors in the National Mile Skating Championship. There were
skaters from all over the country, but I managed to win the intermediate race,
and also a place in the three-quarter mile event.
-You are such a modest young man, Tom. Why, ladies and gentlemen, when
he gets going out there on the ice, all you can see is a blur. It's a case of there he lisp
here he is: there he goes, all in the space of a few seconds.
Well, I see that I'll have to end this series of interviews with well-known
athletes: for my time is about up. Before I sign off, however, I would like to
thank all the fine young men who have consented to answer my questions. This
is your queer Cqueryj man signing off. So long, sports!

THE McALLISTER BRANCH
The McAllister Branch, the largest of Tilden's Branches, is located at 925 W.
36th Street. One of the main policies of this Branch is to have its students parti-
cipate in the government of the school.
The fire guard Work is effectively handled by Mr. Everett and his guards.
Period marshals, chosen for their qualities of leadership, select and organize the
hall guards under the able direction of M. Darragh, the faculty sponsor of this
group. The building is kept neat and orderly during the lunch periods by lunch
guards, organized and directed by Mr. Koedyker, while Mr. Isbaner's stair guards
keep things moving smoothly during the rest of the day.
Our Honor Club sponsor, Miss Brice, reports a membership of over fifty in 'the
Honor Cub, a Worthy record in a school of this size.
Under the leadership of Mr. Goldberg the C.I.C. has prospered. Thru it don-
ations are made to the Thanksgiving collection, Christmas collection, milk fund,
and lunch and carfare fund. The club sponsors assemblies, excursions, and ind-
ustrial and educational pictures.
Mr. Collins directs the intramural activities and emblems are awarded to the

Success is the reward that one pursues,
Fame is the fortune Dame Chance brews
Both are achieved with toil and strife,
And humourg- the spice -of Life.
For ages man had dreamed of a time when his voice might be hurled great dis-
tances without physical exertion. The marvelous instrument we call a radio has
made this possible.
Radio has been fortunate, for its popularity came at a time when physicists had
just succeeded in formulating the new theory of the atom. Without the research
work done by these tireless men, the future of radio would have been a sorry one.
Vast fields in research work and in engineering of radio have been opened up
through the increased control of the electron.
Although Marconi stands out as a singular figure in radio, his wonderful in-
vention could not have been possible without the experiments and research work
accomplished by his predecessors.
A pleasing result of the universal interest in radio is the vast amount of tech-
nical knowledge being absorbed by boys and young men. A new generation of
scientists and engineers to carry on the work begun 'by the pioneeers in the radio
field is now growing up. Never before in the teaching of science has the interest
of pupils been so intensely concentrated on a scientific subject.
We think of radio now as a useful means of communication and a dellightful
form of entertainment: but its greatest significance in the future will be its educ-
ational influence. Radio will be the school of tr:-ining which will educate fthe eng-
ineers, inventors and scientists of tomorrow, not by the thousands by by the
millions. It is our belief that the radio will ind a larger place in the schools
through the increased recognition of its educational value.
In View of its tremendous influence on the modern world, the theme of this
Yearbook of the Senior class of 1937 is Radio.
POILED BY A COIL
A slightly built, bilious looking young man came into the lunch wagon.
The shifty eyed counter attendant nodded listlessly at his "Hamburger to take
out" order and went ahead preparing the sandwich
After paying for his sandwich the bilious looking young man went out,
leisurely noting the time by the clock on the wall. 8:20. Once outside he went
into action. He hurried along the street until he found a dark alley, took a hasty
glance both ways. and ducked in the alley. Up to this point his actions would not
have been considered too unorthodox 'but now he did a strange thing. After un-
wrapping the sandwich he threw the hamburger away with a disdainful snort,
but the paper he kept. He then took a match from his pocket, lighted fait, waited
a moment for it to burn freely and held it close to the paper. Soon writing began
to appear. A secret message! There's method in his madness. He read aloud
slowly, "Farnum in Byromvillef'
Al Burlow, the man holdi.ng the paper, began losing his bilious look. This
cryptic message was the much needed sedative. It told of the whereabouts of one
Joe Farnum. Not only Al, the Philadephia Courier's star reporter, but the whole
Philadelphia police force, numerous government agents, and quite a few "Pro-
tection Engineersn were anxious to find Joe. It seems that Joe and his boys, in a
friendly brawl with a rival "Crganization," had rid the world of ten of its un-
desirables. Hence the hide and go seek game. The smile on Al's face could almost
be called a smirk. He hurried off, whistling.
At 9:00 Al, with traveling bag, pipe, and the latest copy of Popular Crime
Science, was on the train. 3:00 A.M. saw him sleeping in Byromville's newest
largest, and only hotel.
Arising early fthe 12:00 whistle awakened himj Al began to map his course
of action. To make direct inquiries for Joe woud be out of the question. Inter-
viewing Bryomville's 2,000 -God fearing souls would take too much time. Then
too, if Farnum were in Byromville he would not come openly because he was
too well known. It would be impossible for him to rent a room or house with-
out detection. Byromville was too talkative for that ....
An hour of this heavy thinking and Al, gradually becoming conscious of the
heated condition of his feet Cfrom pacing the Hoorb decided that his brain and
heels needed a rest, and some fresh air.
Half an hour later we find our brain truster astride a listless swayback, Cob-
viously retired from dairy servicej which he had rented from the town's combi-
nation hardware store and livery stable. About two miles out of town he en-
countered a tobacco chewing rustic, shuffling along the gravel road. A conver-
sation ensued. After a spirited exchange of positive and negative grunts, silence
prevailed. Al, in an attempt to keep up the loquacious spirit which every ruralite
posseses, began asking questions about an old mansion which they were approach-
ing. His acquaintance, in his orbit at last, became a veritable bureau of inform-
ation. It seems that the house was Byrom Manor, built in 1885 by Isaac Byrom.
the founder of Byromville. Isaac, God rest his soul, had died in 1890 and no one
had 'been in or near Byrom Manor since.
After a close scrutiny of the house as he passed, A1 suddenly found that he
was tired. Bidding his rustic acquaintance adieu, he turned his trusty steed home-
ward. The return trip was uneventful. Arriving at the hotel he headed for the
telephone. After a hurried consulation with the receiver of his long distance call,
Al again headed for the wide open spaces. This time his attitude was a vigilant
one. He stood across the street from the town restaurant, a strong silent man alone
with his thoughts. ,-
At 7:00 P.lVl. Byromville Glue Factory time C7 toots on the whistlej things
began to happen. A group of clean-cut, business-like young men drove up and
went into the restaurant. Al went in followed by a squadron of horse flies. A
minute later Al, the clean-cut, business-like men, and a different squadron of
flies came out. QThey worked in relaysj Al and the C.C.B.L. young men got
into their cars and headed for Byrom Manor. Within an hour they had captured
Farnum and his boys, had given Al an exclusive story and had headed for the
Next day while Al was being congratulated on his big scoop he was asked
how he happened to pick the right house.
"Well, boys and girls," he said, learnedly, "it's like this. Nobody around
Byromville ever went near Byrom Manor. Farnum knew that: he had hung ouft
there before. Oh, he was very smart but he forgot one thing. When I happened
to ride by the place I noticed an aerial. That meant there was a radio inside. When
I learned that the house was supposed to have been untouched since 1890 I put
two and two together and got Joe Farnum. You see, radio is not 47 years old."
Al went out to get a hamburger.

Short Story Contest. Mr. Bragg received a gift copy of the Craftman for his
POWER OE THE PRESENT
When winter blew her icy breath
Across the field and glade,
I wondered much if even spring
Could hide the ruin it made.
When summer suns were pouring down
Their deepest, warmest ray,
I scarce could picture to myself
A bleak, drear winter day.
And so it is with grief and joy,
Those contrasts on life's screen:
Each in its turn displays such force
The other is not seen.
When the blazing sun of summer
Sends its terrible scorching rays
Down upon creation
Where it hasn't rained for days,
The plants and vegetation
Slowly wither in the sun,
And men stagger home
When their daily work is done.
The cruel sun is merciless
To all who roam the lands:
Its heated breath is felt the most
On burning desert sands.
The only thing that we can do
To help us in our strife
Is pray for rain to come to us
And give all things new life.
Then suddenly a wind springs up-
The sky begins to cloud:
Lightning flashes vividly,
The thunder clatters loud.
Finally the heavens
Send the cooling torrents down,
Enrobing all the earth
In a cooling wetted gown.
In the year 1950, the worldwide electrical firm headed by Kramer and Salas
succeeded in perfecting a new machine called an "audio-scopographf' This "aud-
io-graph" enables persons who tune in any locality to hear and see the things being
done in that vicinity. We, a delegation of reminiscing graduates, have secured
the use of this machine for a time, in order to look into the activities of our former
classmates. We turn the dial this way and that-what was that?-a shot? The
vision-plate clears and we see the big game hunter, Huttner, in the African wilds.
That trumpet under his arm is merely his elephant call, and those lions strewn
about him are the result of his latest foray. Our machine next brings us a view
of Turkey, and as the flute-like strains of music waft from a lofty minaret, we
tune ourselves into the harem of His Impertinence, The Sultan of Outdoor, El
Robyn Huzzid Schrader, who is at the moment being fanned by two dusky
Not wishing to interrupt his blissful dream, we turn the locality indicator
north, and on the screen appears the Dictator of Diploma, Dorosz, shown ad-
dressing his loyal idiots in Timesky Square. As his stentorian voice booms out
in a meaningless jargon we hurriedly turn to a different locality. The sound of
a motor fills the speaker and we see an aeroplane flying over New York City. A
finer focus with the machine reveals the plane piloted by Orsi and Van, the globe-
girdling knights of the air.
They have 'been up two months on an endurance flight and they may stay
up till Tilden gets its addition. The audio-scopograph now takes us to a court-
room scene in Maine, where the case of -Gorman versus Denk, with Judge Smul-
lin on the bench, is attracting world-wide attention. The plaintiff, Gorman,
has as attorneys, the great law firm of Johnson, Johnson, Smith and Johnson,
Cwonder how Smith got in?D while the denfendant, Denk, has Snodgrass and
McCullough, those two staunch champions of the underdog, to defend him. Not
wishing to hear the barking details of the trial, we pass onto the ice-bound wastes
of Iceland and the vision-plate shows a tiny speck in the distance. With a better
focus, we are able to recognize that intrepid explorer, Casey, who gained valuable
experience in the exploring line back in TILDEN, when he had 'to find references
for Miss Murphy and Mrs. Gentleman.
Wishing a diirect contrast to this scene, we dial the South Sea Islands, and in a
small inlet we discover Holliday and Gudgeon diving for pearls! Leaving these
denizens of the deep to their quiet and solitude, we dial the U.S. and get a focus
on the Trianon ballroom, where the M.C. announces as the feature attraction,
those internationally known dancers, Boudry and Boudray. As the orchestra,
led by Mike Klasjna., begins to play, we can't help noticing the exqulisite splendor
and beauty employed in the architecture of the interior of the ballroom. This
palace of dancing was designed and built by that huge firm of architects, Klobucar,
Knobloch, Kubicki, Massias, Long, and Steinhauer, a firm founded thirteen years
ago, in 1937.
Feeling in the need of a bit of excitement, we dial the World Series game between
the Cubs and Sox. Behind the bat and, on third base for the Cubs, we spot
two former Tildenites, Joe Kral and "Pep" Franek. The game is made colorful
by the brilliant playing of Botica, Mitchell, and Melgin. Despite the terrific
slugging of Outielder Coatar, there is no score on either side, so we decide to leave.
Turning the dial aimlessly, with no particular place in mind, we pick up a view
of the marquee of the Metropolitan Opera House, which brightly proclaims
Sheehan as the starring singer in the latest opera, written by that genius, Krollik.
We continue dialing and the screen shows a big commotion in front of the Modern
theatre, where Harry Yourell, the handsome screen idol, is appearing in person.
The three policemen keeping the crowds back we recognize as Short, Molitor, and
With the Olympics of 1950 now going on in Australia, we dial Sydney, and
focus the screen on the Municipal Stadium.. Amid the tumultuous shouting we
hear cries of, "Bravo, Springs, old chap," and "Carry on, you bally Herman
brothers." Upon watching the games for a while, we see that many former Tilden-
ites, Shintani, Lloyd, Rymkus, Kostovich, and many others, are making and
breaking records by the score.
Back to the United States we go, to tune in the Wo-rld's Typing Contest
which is being held at the Sherman Hotel. Leading the field, but tied with each
other, we see those demon typists, Kuehnke and Youmans. We do not wish to
interrupt their terrific speed of 1000 mistakes an hour, so we twirl the knob.
A chemistry la'b is shown on the screen, and we see those two demon chemists,
Buchhass and Graybill, gazing at the ceiling. They had been trying to discover
a new explosive with the assistance of Colby. It seems that Colby discovered it,
- - he's the spot on the ceiling! As we are about to leave, we see a room marked
"Photographic Department." and go in. At the sink in one corner., Paterson
and Cunningham are feverishly trying to develop a photograph with their new
fluid, Iodic Flouride. lf it is successful, developing will be put on a domestic
basis. Yes, a bottle of Iodic Flouride for every home.
One of our party remembers that the Bungling Brothers Circus is in town, so
we tune in the circus. As we wander about, looking at the sideshows, whom
should we see billed as the World's Strongest Man but Rimac! Surprises are
numerous, however, for we find Korenic as a Hindu snake-charmer, Glenn
Robinson as a lion tamer, and Valentine as the Tallest Man. Pritchard, the Man
of Destiny, is still trying to get in, however, for we see him carrying water to the
elephants in the hopes of a free ticket.
Those two men wandering around with the suspicious looks on their faces
are the circus detectives, Gallagher and Raglow.
After an enjoyable time looking the circus over, we turn the dial till the yap-
ping of dogs is heard in the speaker. As the screen clears, we see that it is the
Klassy Kennels for Kute Kanines run by Finn, that connoisseur of dogs. The
yapping is too much for us so we tune it off.
Acting on a sudden impulse, we get the broadcastnig studio of station S.O.U.R.
in focus with the screen, and singing before a microphone we see that peer of all
vocalizers, Franks. Playing in the orchestra accompanying him we see Mariska
and Turrell, '
As we turn the dial aimlessly, the sound of munching jaws is heard and the
vision-plate discloses Wilcox. the champion pie-taster of the world, at work in
the Yea-Some-Crusto pie factory.
At the suggestion of one of the group we dial the Break Lakes Naval Training
Station where "Shipwreck Salo" and "Popeye Punis" are undergoing the meta-
morphosic process of becoming sailors. We continue in the martial air of things
and get San Diego where Hanlon and Eisler are being imbued with the ideals of
the U.S. Marines.
ln Texas, we find as cow punchers, those Riders of the Range, Cosgrove and
Derda, CNO my friends, that cow they are branding is not Guffredolj
And now, in order to see what Tilden graduates are accomplishing in the
business world, we tune in the National Convention of Screwy Business Men but
whom should we see upon the speaker's platform, but Moll. Moll is the president
of the firm manufacturing drawing paper stretchers, which is the largest of its
kind in the world. The delegation of steam-heated locker manufacturers, with
Troup as its chairman, objects to Moll's statements. and a riot ensues. The
samples of custard pie, which are made exclusively by the Klopke Pie Co. play
a large part in the battle. After the arrival of the State Asylum keepers, who get
pie all over their white uniforms, we turn from this hilarious scene to one of
A few deft turns of the dial and the sound of a typewriter being exercised
at a furious rate fills the speaker. As the screen discloses and shows a figure bent
with age and with a beard as long as the Mississippi River, we recognize the
barely discernible features as those of Pavlak. Pavlak started to write the
PROPHECY for Mrs. Pearce and the CRAFTSMAN 'way back in '37, and
he's still trying to finish it.

The delegation of reminiscing graduates in possession of 'this wonderful
machine went on, discovering what their former classmates were doing and
accomplishing: but, my dear fellow students and seniors, the lack of space and
time restrains me from elaborating further on the promising futures of all the
illustrious young men Tilden is pouring out upon the fortunate world. The
author does not wish to slight any fellows who have not been mentioned in
this brief article. It is obviously impossible to mention one and all. But let us
endeavor, as we pursue our life's aim and happiness, to make our own future,
for certainly we are capable. Let us strive in every way to better this world, to
press our steadying influences on a world wavering between doubt and reality
and to fulfill the greatest possibilities of our Destiniesl
THE LIMPING SOLDIER
Tears of pity fill my eye
As a limping soldier passes 'byg
And in my heart a hate does grow,
Against all men who stoop so low
To bring on war for earthly gain
That leaves many in lasting pain,
They have no thought for others' strife,
For money rules their wretched life.
THE WILL OE THE CLASS OE 1937
'We, The People," of the June class of 1937, hereby pass on to posterity
this, our last will and testament, and in doing so we present to our worthy
superiors all the car-loads of prunes and plums that we have gathered in the four
years we have slaved at this institution. In other words, we take this opportuniity
to give these small tokens of our appreciation. fand otherwisej, to our dearly
beloved instructors for all the knowledge and wrath they have poured onto our
poor. innocent CFD heads.
To Dr. Lunak, exhribitor of sartorial excellence unexcelled, and principal of
our beloved alma mater, we bequeath a renewed school spirit, the highest rank in
the North Central Association ratings and success, both social and financial, in
all of Tilden's affairs.
To Miss Woessner, guardian of cell 302, we present an anti-coherent pupil
exposer. Clie-detector to youb. She certainly will be 'busy with it when she has to
question luckless Seniors about certain mysterious absence slips.
Upon Miss Lawler we bestow an automatic "E" stamping machine which can
be used on report cards of energetic students who relentlessly pursue hidden
historical facts about our country.
After long deliber'ation, we have decided to give Mr, Moore, eminent
teacher of things photographic, a special kind of candid camera. This mediocre
master piece will fasten to the rear of Mr, Moore's collar, and is so adjusted that
he can snap a picture of anyone who is standing behind him. This will certainly
make it embarrassing for certain young gentlemen who persist in talking behind
To Mr. Lurie, the architects' guide and keeper of Hippy, the draftsman's
mascot, we will a fur-lined bathtub for the hippo's personal enjoyment. Along
with the tub goes a crate of Woodbury's beauty soap which Hippy can use to
keep that school girl complexion.
Our next bequest will be to Mrs. Gentleman, who has undertaken the noble
but impossible task of drumming the history of our land into the heads of dod-
dering Seniors. We bequeath to her a gold plated fireman's helmet and a platin-
um axe in commemoration of her daring and courage in extinguishing the great
conflagration that raised Portable 5 last semester. We wonder, though, whether
this will be Wz'rth the great sacrifice she made in fighting the fire.
To "Doc" Walters, known to all, we will one hundred empty gas tanks on
the back of one hundred Hispanos owned by one hundred rich people. May they
all be filled at Doc's combination grease palace and barbeque salon.
We hereby grant permission to Mr. CCal1 me "Dutch"j Von Bemer to conduct
a special class on his favorite subject,-football tactics. To this class go our heart-
felt sympathies, and the hope that his pupils Won't shatter a tonsil while they
snore during one of his lectures.
To Miss Cullison, Warden of the ill-famous make-up room, we wish to present
a full set of handcuffs and leg-irons, a supply of riot and tear gas guns, and last
but not least, we promise to ask the Board of Education for a cell door and steel
bars for the Windows. Then those hardened criminals who are sentenced to serve
time can be safely stowed away in room 136.
Mr. Sessler has been designated as the recipient ofa dandy fore-and-aft cap, and
a nice, 'big, black underslung pipe so that he can disguise himself as Shylock
Bones, the great defective. We hope that he can find hundreds of nice smudgy
finger-prints for his huge collection of impressions of the terminal members of
Now that we have unloaded a lot of our worldly possessions on some of our
unfortunate teachers, we turn our blood-shot eyes to the student body. We have
a lot to say to those naive youngsters who are following in our foamy wake, so
let us get down to business.
First the freshmen: to them we bequeath the envious faculty of corporal presence
in combination with mental absence. With this aid they may spend long hours
in stuffy class rooms engrossed, to all appearances in their studies, but with the
help of the forementioned aid, they may be a million miles away in surrealism.
To the sophomores we bequeath a portion of the intestinal fortitude they'll
need to successfully complete the next two years of study. In commemoration of
their worthy endeavor we build them a monument of scrap paper and pencil
To the juniors we leave the priceless heritage of one day attaining the enviable
UD position of a lordly senior. We grant also the patent rights to the dissolvo-
lens, which dissolves fthe perturbing presence of an enraged teacher, and in her
place it projects a view of a cool, mossy, river 'bank, hung low with shade trees
and roofed by an azure sky.
After hearing militaristic young men parade through the halls and upon the
streets for four years, it seems as though the most appropiate thing to leave them
would be shoes, heavy hob-nailed affairs. Surely their original pairs must be
worn out by now.
Next the C.l.C. For them., soap-barrels of soap to be placed in every wash-
room in the school. For the first few weeks of each semester there is soap for
all: but as in all good administrations, campaign promises wear off.
To the dispensers of hued pigment known as l'Sign Painters," we leave them
the gloomy outlook of painting all signs for future Tilden circuses. We leave them
as we found them, grim and bespattered.
To the Times we leave the wraith-like ideas of a thousand discarded ideas and
the wrath of the thousand Tildenites who submitted them,
The next bequest will be made to that culinary rendezvous of youth, the lunch-
room. To its patrons we leave mythical row upon row of spotless, white-topped
tables supported by a floor utterly devoid of crumpled sections of soiled paper.
To the school as a whole, we leave our absence, which will 'be made conspicuous
by the lack of 'boisterous laughter, clever ideas, and the presence of an obnoxious
air of deathly silence, a silence which will manifest itself everywhere-even dur-
ing classroom recitations.
To the teachers as a whole, we leave the welcome rest which comes after a try-
ing period-the huge saving in the purchase of red ink-the untroubled, care-
free outloo-k upon preceptoring-and the sigh of joy as we, the procrasinators
of daily homework, receive our certificates of dismission, manumission and de-

"THE MAN ON THE STREET"
"Pinkle's Perfect Pickles present Noel Nosey, the Man On The Street, who
today is broadcasting from in front of Tilden Tech High School. Before we
switch to Noel we want to tell you something about the Pinkle pickle, the
pickle with a soul. You will be glad to know that you will never become gummed
up with the juice of a Pinkle pickle when you partake of its delicious crispness.
Each Pinkle pickle is equipped with a gutter down its side, which leads the
juice away from your lingers and lets it dribble into your plate. Pinkle's pickles
come in three varieties: first, the "La Prima", wlith its special horse-shoe shape
making it easy for the busy hostess to hook it on the edge of the plate. The
second variety is the "Perfecto Grande", which has square sides so that it can't
roll about one's plate. The latest creation of the Pinkle Company is "Chipsos",
thin slices of cucum'ber pickles, which are especially delicious for picnics. Along
with each jar of "Chipsos" there is a squeejee for removing superflous juice from
each slice. Now we switch you to Noel, who today is questioning some well
"How do you do everybody? This is Noel Nosey speaking. Around me are
some line looking young men who attend this high school. My Hrst victim will
be Walter Pabedinski, who is a senior here at Tilden. Walter, what subject do you
"Well, Mr. Nosey, I guess I like Civics best, for mv teacher is very nice. She
explains everything so well and she has a nice personality. Anyway, exams are
coming soon, so why shouldn't I put in a good word for myself? She might
be listening in."
"You're very wise, my little man. Now I'll present a gentleman named Frank
Staskiewicz, whom I shall ask to tell about his most unusual experience here at
"Well, when I was Freshman I had a most unusual experience, one that I
can't quite figure out even yet. A Senior told me to take a note to room 423, and
I spent an hour looking for it. When I finally found the room, I stayed there so
long waiting for the teacher I almost froze to death. Imagine, that fool room
hasn't even got a roof."
"My, my, that's too bad, but it's possible that some day you might catch on.
Standing before me now is a bespeckled, studious looking lad that answers to the
name of Lawrence Snodgrass. Mr. Snodgrass, being a Senior, what do you think
has helped you the most in getting through school?"
"I think that my glib tongue has helped me the most for there isn't a teacher
in Tilden who can remember what she meant to reprimand me about once I've
given her a salvo of some choice bits of my vocabulary. I can remember the time
Miss Simcox tried to figure out the explanation I gave her. Yes, sir, can I slay
'em with those big words of mine!"
"You're certainly clever, my dear sir. While Mr. Snodgrass was talking, I no-
ticed that Mrs. Gentleman was standing near the mike, so I asked her to step up
and tell you what she thinks the Seven Wonders of the World ought to be. So
now I take great pleasure in presenting Mrs. Gentleman, the popular U.S. his-
MAN CDN SIIQtl:I
"Hello, folksies. Well, first of all, I think that the title of "The World's
Loudest Laugher" should be given to Kenneth Johnson. When he lets go With
a guffaw, Portable 5 shakes like a bowl of jelly. Mr. Walker earns the title of "The
Perpetual Talker", even I can't equal his chattering. The role of the Invisible Man
should go to Melvin Schrock, for now you see him, now you don't. The "Nicest
Person in The World", l'd say without being at all partial, is Mr. Genkleman-
QI'd rather have a Buick, if you don't mind, dearj. As for the "Most Brilliant
Student", I can't decide between Holmboe and Glaserg for that matter, neither can
they. Of course, "The Old Dependable" is George Larson."
'LThank you very much Mrs. Gentleman. My, what do I see before me now?
This tall young man has an R.O.T.C. uniform on, but he looks more like a col-
lege professor. He has a pained expression on his face, possibly he's thinking. What
is your name, my militaristic friend?"
"Odds-bodkins, thou meanest that thou does't not know my moniker? It be
Sir Percival Priebel, Knight of the Shower, Knight of the Zipper, and Knights
and Daze. I'm known as the Tilden Shakespearian dramatist, and am verily fam-
ous for my quaint sayings. Shall I hurl one in your direction?"
"No, no, please save us from that. After all, there's a limit to that kind of stuff,
and you're it. Anyway, I see a noble countenance standing out from the rest of
the crowd of faces around my mike, and I am hoping that the owner of this bleak
pan will step up and give me his name."
"My name is Pritchard. I'm probably the best known of all Tildenites. When
I get up to speak, everybody laughs. When I finish speaking, no one laughs. Why?
Nobody's there! Could it be my poisonality ?',
" I'm afraid I couldn't answer that question, Mr. Pritchard. I do know,
though, that I've just enough time to ask a question of Albert McCullough.. the
well-known wandering Arab. What is your favorite pastime, Albert?"
'AI get a kick of wandering around Tilden's halls, passing by the guards with
my nose high in the air. Of course, I don't really go any place, but it sure is a nice
feeling to know that I can walk around without a pass. "Liberty and Freedom"
is my motto."
"A very remarkable fellow, don't you think, audience? CI hope I still have
onej . Now I see that my time is about up, so I'll return you to the studio, where
the sponsor has a plug, I mean message, for us."
"Have you grown tired of those soggy, listless pickles? Do you want to find
new pickle eating enjoyment? You don't? Then what do you want? Oh, all
right, I'll get off the air in just a second, but first let me tell you to go to your
grocer today and ask him for a jar of Pinkle's Perfect Pickles."

He sets some awful paces
And passes each opponent up

"TECH HALL TONIGHT"
"Ladies and gentlemen, Tech Hall Tonight Ted Mallen is standing in front
of old Tech Hall and is speaking to the crowds out in front. Let's see what he
has to say."
"Hurry, hurry ladies and gentlemen, the big show is starting on the inside, so
come in and enjoy the fun. The first thing on the program is the Tech Hall
Snooze, sees all and smells terrible. Is the curtain ready, Cary?"
'Tm having some trouble with it, Ted. Clarence Lloyd, the great Tilden trap-
eze star, just tried to climb up the pulleys of the movie screen, and I had to lure
him down with the promise that I would buy him a bunch of bananas. But I guess
every thing is O.K. now, so here goes the curtain."
"Fine, Cary. Gosh, there must 'be some queer pupils at Tilden. Well ,anyway,
here are the latest Tech Hall News flashes:"
'Chicago, Ill., June 10: Fifteen Seniors at the Tilden Tech High School are
down with a strange sickness called "Cramming." It was believed to have been
started by the threats of their teachers that they would fail to graduate if all of
their work was not in. These students started to inhale knowledge by the brain
CFD full, and so upset their delicate mental balance that some of them had to be
taken to the observation ward in room 212. Here Dr. L.L. Pearce did what she
could for them, and then asked them to report to the staff of the "Craftsman,"
where the services of these types of individuals are in great demandf
'Dullplace, Ind., June 14: Mr. Earl Weiner, chemistry teacher at Tilden Tech,
Chicago, who came here a month ago to attend the local sanatorium, today re-
vealed the cause of his .nervous break-down. He said that he was so continually
bombarded with foolish questions by alleged brilliant students, that he finally de-
cided to get away from it all. When asked what made him make up his mind
to take this drastic step, he gave the following account. It seems that William
Smith asked him if he could bring home a bottle of molecules so he could show
them to his little sister. Mr, Weiner went completely off the handle after that, but
the doctors say that he will soon regain his normal out-look on life.'
'Hollywood, Cal., June 17: William Boudry, well known impersonator of
alluring women while attending Tilden, has just been given the position of stand-
in to the beautiful screen actress, Breta Barbo. When asked to give a statement to
the press, Mr. Boudry said that he owes all his success to what he learned at Til-
den. When pressed for further information, he said that he desired to be alone.'
'New York, N.Y., June 20: Glenn Robinson, former editor-in-chief of the Til-
den Tech Times, today received notice that he had been awarded the Phu-Lutzer
prize for the best play of the year, Mr, Robinson's masterpiece is entitled 'The
Message to Garcia', or, 'The Trials of Rubenofff When interviewed, Mr. Robin-
son said that regardless of the fame of this 'book, he will always remember the
play he produced while at Tilden, called 'The Trial of Tom, the Speed Demon'.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, concludes our news flashes for this evening.

We will hear from impatient Cary De Bell."
"Ladies and gentlemen. look at your teeth, yes take 'em out and look at them.
Ah, been eating blue-berry pie again, haven't you? Do you want to regain that
beautiful, sparkling smile of yours? Did you ever have one? If you do want to
bring back the luster of your oral hard-ware, try Sulpana tooth-paste, which is
made with sulfuric acid. Brush your teeth thoroughly with Sulpana, and then
just look at 'em.
"Did I say look at 'em? Cuosh, folks, there won't be much left to look at. Any-
way, please buy a tube of Sulpana tomorrow. We guarantee you'll have a lot
of fun squeezing out the paste: everything will be nice and ikky. And now I'll
turn you back to Ted Mallen, who is about to present the Tech Hall Varieties.
First, however, we interrupt the program in order to give the call-letters of the
station to which you are listening."
"This is station W.T.C.U., the voice of dissatisfaction, Chicago."
"Now, folks, we present the Tech Hall Varieties, that aggregation of medi-
core artists who were in their prime when Dewey licked the Spaniards in Mani-
la Bay. Tonight these decrepit thespians present the drama entitled "The Perils
of Pauline," starring Eugene Pavlak and Alfred Finn. They will be assisted by
James Holliday, Walter Russo and Thomas Casey. In the opening scene we see
Eugene dressed as a young innocent maiden who is being pursued by the villain,
played by Mr. Russo. The second scene shows Thomas and James, who are
friends of Alfred, shooting it out with the villain. Alfred finally rescues his sweet-
heart, Eugene, in the last act. The villain is shot in the back-drop by his pur-
suers. On second thought, I guess we won't present the play after all. We had
better just call the whole thing off. We don't want every one rushing out of the
hall at once. Some one might get hurt. And now we come to another message from
our sponsors, which I have given to Cary De Bell to read to you."
"Thank you, Ted. Ladies and gentlemen, have you a dreary, run down feel-
ing? Are you coming down with a cold? Do you feel sluggish? Are your insur-
ance premiums paid up? They are? Well that's all right then. I might suggest
that you take Pal-Cepata, but you probably won't, so all I'll say is that if you
ever feel as if you wanted to end it all, be sure and take Pal-Cepata, then your
troubles will be over. Now I'll switch you back to Ted, who wants to give you
a brief, Cas possibleb, resume of next week's program.
"Ladies and gentlemen, next week we bring you comedy, Cwe hopej, with
Thomas Casey in the role of chief comic. We will bring music CU, in which
Howard "Rubinoff" Mariska will play his violin, Cwe hope notj. Then we
will have a guest speaker, a representative of the Soviet Union, Comrade Clement
Krolik. I only hope that he remembers to bring his own soap-box. And with that
array of talent, we feel sure that you will enjoy yourself: if you tune in some
other program. Well, now till next week, tally-ho!"
"Your eyes are like deep pools I vow:
Your hair's the shade of a willow bough.
I swear that keen chassis,
Would attract Haile Selassief'
Softly spoke farmer Brown to his cow.
Ima Bore was a radio sheik,
All the girls at him wanted a peek.
They changed their decision
When the new television
Disclosed his crossed eyes and big beak!
"I'm going up in my plane pretty soon,'
To a friend said Aexl McGoon.
Five miles up in the ship
Out of the door he did slip:
Now they're dishing him up with a spoon
He was a hammy Shakespearian actor,
The razzings he got were no factor.
He'd dodge fruit and mean looks,
Till he got yanked by stage hooks.-

Condescend to take a bitg
Raglow: "I'm hungry!"
Gallagher: "I know where you can get
good chicken dinners for fifteen cents."
Gallegher: "In any feed store."
A ROLLING STONE
On a farm now he's running a tractor.
I wouldn t like to be a rock
A-sitting on a hill!
I'd get so blue and lonesome there
A just asittin' still.
I'd rather be a rolling stone
And then when troubles brew-
I'd turn around and roll away
And let the troubles stew.
I' 'DAGO PETE" CMONACOJ
A husky brute was Dago Pete-
His arms were big, so were his feet,
His shoulders large, his belly fat,
His head so thick he wore no hat.
"I'll football play," thought Dago Pete
But found no shoes to lit his feet,
No shoulder pads were large enough,
No pants, no shirt-his luck was tough!
No helmet could they get for Pete,
The team they had to face defeat:
There was no sport that he could play,
Imagine Dago Pete's dismay!
Listen, boys, to what we say
As we start upon our way,
Keep up the spirit every day-
Go to it, Tildenl
Apply the Golden Rule to all,
Do not let our standards fall:
With spirit answer every call-
Go to it, Tilden!
Let this school be proud of you,
Make it so by things you do- -
Honor for the Gold and Blue-
Go to it, Tildenl
When you leave in the future years
And your graduation nears,
You'll find it hard to stop the tears-
Go to it, Tilden!
Into these stir
Leisurely pour in
Dash in some
Empty in some
Now mix in noble
Top withva bit of
Edge with enough
