THE LITTLE GRAFTSMAN
LAURA M. WRIGHT
Since April the student body and faculty have missed
a Woman of vital personality vvho has been associated with
Tilden throughout many years of its interesting history. Fitting
a person of her energy, she has entered active retirement. In
appreciation of her years of thoughtful service, energetic and
Willing spirit, and her firm and guiding hand in student affairs,
We dedicate this Craftsman to Miss Laura M. Wright.

FREDERICK E. PRICE
Because devastating forces are ruthlessly at
work in an attempt to remove the democratic
way of life from this earth, education finds itself
charged with the responsibility of disseminating
the knowledge and developing the spirit upon
which a healthy democracy thrives. This respon-
sibility is influenced primarily by defense needs
and by life in modern society. ln general, the in-
dividual must be given the fundamental tools of
learning according to his tastes, his needs, and
his talents. He should develop a strong body and
sane attitudes of mind. Art, music, and literature
will add to his appreciation of life and influence
his personality and conduct. He must learn how
to live harmoniously with others, and to give to
society as much as he takes from it. The great
issuses and problems of contemporary society
should be handled with frankness, honesty, and
truthfulness, understanding, and courage so that
the individual will be better able to discharge
his civic duties intelligently.
Representative experiences in the school
shops, with related science and technology,
should develop a wholesome attitude towards so-
cially useful work. They should formulate a
background of insights, understandings, and
skill upon which to build the more specialized
trade training so necessary in industry and na-
tional defense, and make for a socially and eco-
nomically intelligent and cooperative adulthood.
In this rapidly changing World no one can
predict the future. But in order to meet whatever
may come we want Tilden boys to be intelligent,
informed, industrious, skilled, and inbued with
the profound belief in democracy as the best
way in life.
AGNES A. SMYTH
I like Tilden.
I like the manliness of her boys-
The fact that almost every student
In the corridors, the shops, the classrooms-
Sports symbols of Service-
Stars and bars-one-three-six
Stripes and chevrons!
Proofs that all have served in turn
To better this community,
Not only ready to get but eager to give.
How better can we learn to know
The value of our heritage
Than to grow strong by sharing?
This is our treasury, unseltish service.
Miss McCambridge, Secretary to the Treasurer: Miss Tarr, Secretary
to the Principal: Mrs. Foley, Secretary to the Assistant Principal: Mr.
Myers, Superintendent of Technical Work: Mrs. West, Student Records.
Every school, to continue properly, must
have a nucleus from which the business,
position, and high standards of the school
are exactingly directed and maintained.
Then too, good citizenship and the school's
activities must be promoted. The central
government that has all these as only a por-
tion of their burden is the administrative de-
partment of the school which is headed by
our principal Mr Price and his assistant Miss
Tilden's most prominent feature is its
technical courses, the activities of which are
controlled by Superintendent H.O. Myers.
To graduate competent young men there
must be some individual attention given to
students. This is attained through the Ad-
justment Office Wherein the boy may re-
ceive aid in any problem that is encounter-
ed in school life. This service is headed by
Acting in accordance with the Director of
Occupational Research of the Board of Ed-
ucation and the Illiniis State Employment
Bureau is Mr. Williamson and the Place-
ment Bureau who endeavor to place stu-
dents in lucrative positions
Of importance to all departments of the
school is the Tilden branch of the Public
Library, under the direction of Miss Ethel
Hedenberg. The Tilden library this year
celebrated its Fifteenth Anniversary

In these trying times what could be more timely than to stress
defense? We have our bases such as Guam, St. Lucia, New-
foundland, and others surrounding our country to form an im-
pregnable defense. These would be of little value, however, if
we could be attacked from within our own shores by some sub-
versive element taking advantage of personal ignorance to
create havoc and disorder. To prevent such a catastrophe we
must prepare ourslves as our nation has. We must build bases,
not of men and steel, but of knowledge and understanding.
The bases the individual should construct are courage, integ-
rity, a humane point of view, and faith in the principles of
democracy. The individual's rock of Gibralter shall be an im-
pregnable appreciation of our right to "life, liberty, and the pur-
suit of happiness". The way must be paved for all the future
generations to shout, so all the world may hear, "We in Amer-
ica are free!"

Important to the activities of the senior
class are these four committees. They
have the responsibility of performing
many duties vital to the functioning of
Guided by Miss Mabel Simcox, the
Sweater Committee is one of the most
outstanding in the minds of the students.
The committee does all that is necessary
to get the senior sweaters to the senior.
The Ring and Pin Committee is also
sponsored by Miss Simcox and their
tasks are essentially the same as that of
the sweater committee. This year a ring
and pin symbolic of a technical high
school was chosen from the designs sub-
mitted by the B.I. Kesl Company, jewel-
Miss Hubler has charge of the Senior
Program Committee which was organiz-
ed to plan and direct assemblies. A high-
ly successful program presented by them
was the Thanksgiving Assembly which
was directed and handled well by the
boys in this new venture.
The Social Committee led by Mr.
Shine has been credited with being one
of the finest in years. All the dances spon-
sored by the organization enjoyed in-
creased attendance over those of former

Among some of the other activities of the Sen-
ior Council is a Big Brother Committee. It sends
delegates to the new 1B and 2B divisions of the
school to explain the rules for and privileges of a
Tilden student. The Council members also usher
at some special assemblies.
The Senior Council has the Circus concession
for sellng ice cream bars. With the percentage of
the profits they keep they plan to buy pins for the
Guard Marshals and Supevisors. They also buy
pins to give out to the members of the Council.
The Senior Council has high hopes of becom-
ing one of the most active groups in the school.

This was frequently heard as the activities of
the senior election got under way. The candidates
that were endeavoring to secure one hundred
signatures for their petitions are all in the upper
quarter of the class, one of the requirements for
potential class officers. The problem of signatures
laid many of the students with political ambitions
by the wayside.
After the clamor had died down and the peti-
tions were checked by the election commissioners,
it was found that Iohn Christopulos, lack Losh-
bough, and Truman Wright were the nominees for
president: Nick Melas, Charles Schmudde and
Arty Wroblewski for vice-president: Herbert Post
and Leonard Stefanowski remained in the battle
CANDIDS Snapped in the course of their campaigns were these
Tildenites: Upper left, Wroblewski, lower left. Wright: above center,
a number of candidates admire their propaganda: below center,
two of the boys at work: upper right. Melas: lower right, Losh-
for secretary: and Robert Powers and Ralph
Erickson were left to vie for the treasurer's position.
After a week of intensive campaigning the
eventful day came, December 13, election day.
Once again the Election Commissioners Went into
action, conducting the election. When they had
counted the secret ballots cast, the board posted
the results. lack Loshbough had been elected to
the presidency, Leonard Stefanowski to the
secretary's post, and at the treasurer's strong box
was Robert Powers. No candidate received a
majority in the race for vice-presidency, but on
the second balloting Arty Wroblewski held the
edge over Nick Melas and got the office. These
officers were insalled by Mr. Duffie at an Inaug-
bough. Center picture, Election Commissioners: First Row- Given,

CRAFTSMAN SENIOR WILL ,.,.,,,,,,,,,,
We, the Seniors of Tilden, declare this to be
our last will and testament. We have been found
to be of reasonably sane mind and our bodies are
as sound as can be expected after the four years
of slavery that have been endured. We do wil-
fully and freely dispose of our worldly posses-
sions as follows:
To the world in general we offer our mental
abilities, labor, and other services. We will do
our utmost to keep ahead 1 at union wages.
To Tilden we leave vacated lockers. That's
just about all, vacated lockers.
Willed to Mr. Price are the unbearable head-
aches, sleepless nights, and huge clamors about
absolutely nothing that go with his office.
To Miss Wright go peace and quiet 1- just

"You ask me to tell you what I think of Tilden,"
said the senior as the Craftsman reporter asked
the question. The senior beamed, then changed
his expression to a serious one. Raising his eye
brows he furrowed his forehead and spoke.
"I'll be sony to graduate. Tilden to me has
been a home. It has given me ideas, life, and
strength to face the future which I, as a citizen,
must face. I think that Tilden has shaped me into
the proper mold of manhood. I really can assert
that my four years have been well spent. You
know, Ioe, I'll never forget the days I enjoyed
here. Those companions I know so well-I'll miss
them all. You know, I seem to say nothing but "Hi
there!" as I walk down the hall between classes.
I think Tilden has one of the highest standards of
education in the city. Can I ever forget the last
minute rush I had to do on my term paper for
history and the scare I had when marking time
Ioe Tilden lifted his pencil for a moment and
fired another question at the confiding senior.
"Do you think that you have received the proper
mixture of activities and enjoyment with your
I'll say I have! Will I ever forget those crisp,
autumn days when all week the thought of the
football game Saturday preyed on my mind. The
ring of'football ticketsl' and the phrase, 'going to
the game?' were welcome sounds to my ears. Will
I ever forget the hoarse throats I received from
cheering at the basketball games as all the en-
thusiastc Tildenites roared many a 'Go, Tilden,
Go.' Then, too, I'll never forget the championship
wrestling meet when the title depended on the
outcome of the last bout. When I graduate, Ioe, I
won't have to worry about my hard Chem test or
those short three minutes between classes. Will
I ever forget the afternoon socials when I saw all
my fellow seniors' girls they always talk about.
The sore feet I got after returning fom the after-
noon social will also stand out in my mind
"As for my subjects, Ioe, I liked all of my sub-
jects and teachers. The only dificulty I ever had
to combat in my classes was the drowsy and
dreary head I had as the result of working on
homework 'til the milkman came,
"No, Ioe, I' ll never forget my high school days
at Tilden. It has given me a fine tradiion to up-
hold and besides that I have made great friend-
ships that will strengthen themselves as time

Essential qualities of a student of Well rounded ability should in-
clude many traits that cannot be attained through the normal pursuit
of his studies. Among these desired qualities are the closely related
Initiative and Willingness to Serve. A student needs opportunities
to develop his latent possibilities as a leader. How are the students to
be given these opportunities? lust how will they develop these desired
traits and mold their characters? Through participation in the extra
curricular activities offered at Tilden is the Way they can reach
this goal. Tilden's extra curricular activities are so numerous that any
Tildenite can find some position or duty suitable to his capabilities if
he desires one. Once a member of an organization the student gains
added responsibility as he proves himself worthy. Through his intense
desire to succeed he develops his Initiative. The qualities of leadership
and service are brought forth through participation in such activities as
those offered by Tilden's Guard Systems, Service Club, and First Aid
Station. Service to the school and fellow students and membership in
the student government perpetuate the democratic ideals of the Amer-
ican Way of life.
It is to these activities that develop, encourage, and round out the
student of Tilden into a Well balanced individual that this Undergrad
Section is devoted.

Ioe Tilden spied a troubled looking fellow. Ah,
yes, this was to be his next subject for interview-
a Sophomore. Ioe,all prepared to take notes, ask-
ed, "What do you think of Tilden now that you've
been here awhile?"
The soph scratched his head while his face be-
trayed his eagerness. Finally he spoke, hesitating
at first. "Well ,you see, Ioe' it's like this- I've only
been here for a year and I hardly have had time
to gather any opinions. I've found all my sub-
jects interesting but I don't know so much about
them. I haven't been in very many school activ-
ities except the guard service. You know, Ioe,
I'm getting pretty tough with those sassy seniors
who won't show me their passes."
"What do you do in your spare time?" asked
"What do I do in my spare time did you say?
Well, I'm not good enough to make any of the
teams, yet, but I practice with them. Most of the

time I just go to the movies or dream about that
organization unknown to most of us sophs - the
We sophs are a troublesome lot. Boy, does our
session teacher get the headaches answering all
our questions. Honestly, when you stop to think
about it, they're awfully dumb questions. It's just
that we're not sure of ourselves and we want to
make sure we're sure ............ Oh! you know what
I mean though. It'1l be a lot different next year
when I'm a Iunior. Then I think I'll get a position
on the team, too, even if I'm only a sub."
"Gosh, thanks a lot fel1ow," said Ioe Tilden
Somewhat shyly the soph replied, "Oh, I prob'-
ly didn't say anything you could use."
Reassuring him that he had been of great help,
Ioe Tilden took his leave of the Tilden Soph-
"Say, l:'reshie," said Ioe Tilden to a skittish lit-
tle fellow, " I want you to tell me some of your
thoughts and ambitions for the Craftsman."
"Honest?" queried th e beaming F r e s h i e,
"What'll I say?"
"What would you like to do at Tilden is what
I want," was the stern reply.
"Aw that's easy! I'm gonna be val ..., vale-
dict . . . Oh you know, I'1l have the best marks
in my class. Then for sports I'll be a star on the
football team, the fastest man on the track team,
and make the most points in basketball." Tak-
ing a deep breath he continued, "Then I' ll be
editor of the paper, president of the class, best
citizen, and a big shot in the R.O.T.C."-
"Whoa," exclaimed Ioe Tilden, "Do you really
intend to do all this while youre here at Tilden?"

Patiently Ioe Tilden simplified it, "Oh going

"Aw, that's sissy stuff. Dancing and parties
would mean girls'n' I hate 'em. Instead of doing
that I could become president of the Service club,
join the office guards, and then ..........,..,.. Hey! Ioe!

One of Tilden's recently formed organizations
is the Student Council which is another step to-
wards a stronger student government. The coun-
cil, When compared with other Tilden organiza-
tions, is in its infancy, but it already has assum-
ed the responsibility of a major problem here at
Tilden-order in the lunchroom.
Actual duties in the lunchoom for the council
members are to advise students against throw-
ing papers about, leaving dirty dishes and bot-
tles on the table, carrying food out of the lunch-
room, and to keep general order there. To accom
plish this the boys are stationed throughout the
lunchroom at points from which they can com-
mand a View of the section to which they are
assigned. The boys do not express authority, nor
do they reprimand offenders. They simply act
as a reminder to the more fogetful Tildenites.
This system was worked out by the Student Coun-
cil with much cooperation from Miss Wright.
Officers of he Student Council are: Frank Out-
ley, president: Arnold Olson, Vice-president: and

Have your fascinated eyes ever followed the
fleeting figure of a library guard as he scrurries
from shelf to shelf, laden with books of every
shape, size, and description? Of course you have,
and there are fifty more just like him, who keep
the library in "tip top" condition. Fourteen thou-
sand books pass through the experienced hands
of these fellows every day, who through clock-
work precision and accuracy, manage to main-
tain the ever increasing maze of books in perfect
order. These stalwart lads will lead you through
shelves of books to your desired copy, without a
moment's hesitation. They are able to accomplish
this only by constant handling of hundreds of
books, which gradually acquaints them with
their names and authors. Their job depends upon
a thorough understanding of the Dewey Decimal
System, under which the books are systematical-
ly filed, and their ability ta shelve, sort, check,
and revise the multitudes of books.
At the end of six weeks there is precise, equal-
ly proportioned activity schedule placed on the
desk for each individual guard to follow through
out the next work period. Because these six week
periods are devoted to different varieties of work,
no job becomes stale: instead the guard feels a
keen interest in accomplishing the rudiments of
his next job. Within the course of a semester,
these young men are supplied with information,
and have gained experience that will prepare
them to achieve what the world calls success.
They are not only working for a Civic letter, but
are receivng valuable training as Iunior librar-
Whether it be helping an anxious mother
locate the family prodigy, who ran out of the
house and forgot to take his lunch, or finding the
lad whose car was just smashed to bits in front
of Kinsman's, or any of the other million and one
tasks that pop up in an institution as large as Til-
den, you can rest assured that the office guards
will pitch right in and soon have the situation
well in hand
The Office Guards are one of the hardest Work-
ing bunches in the school. They arrive at school
at sunup and stay until sundown, Cwell, practical-
lyl, during which time they buzz around like so
many busy little bees.
Seriously though, it is really quite an honor to
be in this organization. One must have high
marks in all of his studies before he can even be
considered for the job, and then when he has
made the grade, he must keep his studies up,
keep his personal appearance neat, and his man-
ners always polite.
Some of the more important duties include run-
ning errands for the office staff, directing parents
around the school, and looking up the programs
of teachers or pupils for anyone desiring such

HALL GUARD MARSHALS
Take a good look at these fellows, these guard-
ians of peace and order, protectors of property.
and enforcers of the Rules and Regulations of our
fair school yes, sir, you can certainly tell they are
a fine group of hall guards.
This organization, one of our oldest, performs
one of the most important duties of the school-
that of keeping everything outside the rooms in
A-il order. And what a job that is they see to it
that those fellows who "forgot their passes" are
properly guided back to their moorings, that the
frosh don't go up the down stairway and the sen-
ior down the up stairway, and they try and keep
in check the potential trackmen, gridiron heros.
and basketeers who persist in tearing around like
mad, throwing all opposition for a loss, and

There's an expectant tingle in the air tonight.
The atmosphere is full of laughter and gaiety.
Music and song are mingled with voices of the
people swarming into Tilden. It's Circus night!
"Say, Bill, Tilden looks swell at night with all
of her lights glowing. C'mon let's get in here. I
don't want to miss the Circus."
These and many more are the comments of
visitors to the Circus. The alumni come back on
this night to see their fellow graduates. Faces
beam, hearts are light on this night. Old grad-
uates come back to see their ex-teachers cutting
capers for the multitudes. To see all those fami-
liar faces and to talk with old friends add to the
pleasure and enjoyment of the evenng.
From turnstile to "lights out" the Circus is a
night packed with merry-making and frivolity.
It's one night you cut loose. At the door, masses
of youngsters and oldsters alike, are coming for
a night of fun. The ticket collector is none other
than my tough shop teacher who certainly seems
tame and jolly now. Inside now, a glance at the
program and then a jaunt to the swimming pool
where a spectacular show is in the offing. Dex-
trous dives, speedy swimmers, goofy gondoliers,
magnificent mermaids all this and water, too,
make up the swim show, which each year pro-
vides a real professional performance.
Then off to the Chamber of Horrors-that Pal-
ace of Petrification, the chiller-thriller of them all.
Horrors indeed, for here the hands of huge mur-
derous monsters grope stealthfully in the semi-
dark chamber. Occasionally the face of one of
these beasts is visible in a passing ray of light
and screams of horror cut the smoky air ot the
den of fabulous creatures. A body clad in white
lies ahead with a horrendous expression of fear
frozen forever upon its face. Let's hurry now, for
the flash of light through the sky and the beat of
rolling drums herald the approach of the mon-
sters. Get out while yet you live!
Whewl It's quite a relief to get back into the
steady flow of the crowd. Once again the vivid-
ness, life, and happiness of the Circus returns. A
short glance at our program then off to the Ass-
embly hall. There a gigantic musical production
awaits our pleasure.
With cymbals clashing and tympani rolling,
the curtain rises on the splendorous stage show.
Whimsical women, and gay gauchos with gaudy
garb display excellent talents of professional cali-
ber. Scene after scene, and song after song make
the observer light-hearted and as he strolls on
his way through the throng he whistles the merry
tunes of the show he has just left.
It is a gay night! A night that comes but once
a year but is so crammed with excitement and
thrills as to be worth a hundred nights. People,
swarms of them, moving in one steady flow,
glancing here and gaping there, listening to the
spiel of the barkers. dodging the roller-skate ad-
vertisers. They pause sometimes to read one of
the many signs posted around the building. The
gigantic poportions of the entire affair awe them.
The shops being operated at full speed are a
sight to see. It is this night that the courtesy and
manliness of Tilden is displayed. It's Tilden at its
to the exits. Soon all is still, empty, dark, and
found anywhere. It is truly a combined symphony
of silliness, grandeur, and entertainment.
Salesmen swamp the Visitors with food, roses,
tickets. and buttons to add to the illusion of a
real circus. Cries of 'Step right this way, folks'
and 'Hurry, Hurry' bring back memories of the
"Big Top." Cameras flashing here and here, con-
fetti falling like snow. and the steady tramp of
feet form a familiar background to the carnival
Then off to the Bengal Iungle, the den of weird
beasts whose lust for blood is world-renowned.
The terrific underbrush hides the creatures whose
haunting cries freeze the blood of the trespasser.
Who knows? You might come out alive.
To top off the evening of excitement the large
gymnasium is displaying athletic prowess and
control of physical powers. After that a short
walk to the smaller gym where the new queen of
Tilden is to be selected. A short period of delight-
ful dancing and the sound of the approaching
morn with twelve chimes beckons the merry-
makers to cease till next year. Laughing is still
heard as the gay throngs sleeply tread their way
to the exits. Soon all is still. empty, dark and

Every teacher at Tilden spends at least one period a day
in Room 140, the Adjustment Offce, aiding students in their
school work or helping those who have problems caused by
lack of money or by poor health. The Adjustment Office is
supervised by Mr. Strassman who has under him several
clerks. Also working in the office are twenty-one guards
who carry messages for the teachers.
In the adjustment office is kept a record of the abilities
and interests of all the students. These files are for the use
of the teachers in helping the students with their problems
and in aiding them to plan their programs.
The Placement Guards are a necessary part of a very
beneficial service to Tildenites. They serve as a connection
between our Placement Manager, Mr. Williamson, and the
student body. The duty of these Guards is to notify students
when Mr. Williamson wishes to interview them or when the
resulting job has come. They also keep his files in order and
fill out various cards about the occupations the boys wish
to enter. There are fourteen boys in this department usual-
ly upper year students and sufficiently high in scholarship
to be able to give up a study period a day. The reward for
a semester of this work is one hundred hours toward a Civic

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY
The National Honor Society, Tilden's most ex-
clusive organization, is the goal of every am-
bitious Honor Club member. And why notffor to
be able to say, "I'm a member of the National
Honor Society," is certainly something to boast
Only the "cream of the crop" of seniors is allow-
ed to take the solomn pledge to uphold its high
standards and ideals: every member is a student
of outstanding Character, Scholarship, Leader-
ship, and Service for which the club stands.
Granted its charter to become a member of the
nation-wide group in 1929, the club immediately
made its presence felt. Its members have always
been recognized as boys upon whom one can de-
pend, "live - wires" that have helped the school
maintain its fine name. Miss Wrench, who was its
first sponsor and Miss Lawler have seen to it that
the clubs' standards have always been kept high.
To be one of the lucky few, a senior must be in
the top seven per cent of his class in scholarship,
must have attended two Achievement dinners to
show he participates in extra curricular activities,
and he must be a leader.
If he passes all these requirements, he certain-
ly deserves membership. And here again the
high ideals are stressed, for the initiation is a very
solomn and impressive ceremony. Every boy
must take the following pledge: "l pledge myself
to uphold the high purposes of this society, striv-
ing in every way by word and deed to make its
ideals the ideals of my school and of my life."
And so he is a member for life, an honor he
will always be proud of.

No doubt one ot the most popular clubs here at
Tilden is the Service Club, ably sponsored by one
ot Tech's mathematics teachers, Mrs. Lutz. This
student body, a large one at Tilden, was organ-
ized in May 1937, dedicated to the proposition
that all their services should be given to the
school Without reward. To be more precise the
aims of the club are to encourage school spirit
and to combine talents for the production of ass-
emblies and shows.
This year the Service club has sponsored two
assemblies. The first one was a mathmatics ass-
embly which the Service club members put on.

are some of the seniors who participated in the
assembly. The mathematics department, aided
by the Service club, put on the show to demonstr-
ate to all the Tilden students how mathematics
works in with our everyday existence. Then, too,
the Service club co-operated with the C.I.C. to
stage the Patriotic Assembly. For the Circus this
year, Mrs. Lutz's crew helped to create the Mex-
ican night club, "El Patio."

SAFETY COUNCIL and FIRST AID
Safety First-That is the slogan of the Tilden
Safety Coucil which was organized about three
years ago by Mr. Buchanan in an effort to cut
down the number of accidents happening around
school. The Council requests each department to
send a representative each morning to lVlr. Buch-
anan's shop to help him carry out his work.
Through the hard work of this oganization hitch-
ing rides on trucks has been completely stopped.
Another organization which is really doing its
part for Tilden is the First Aid Station. This de-
partment is ready to serve any boy who should
be injured here in school and need first aid. It is

What's your hobby? Handicraft, collecting,
tinkering? Whatever it is you can be sure it was
well represented at the sixth annual Tilden P.T.A.
Hobby Show held March 19, for, as in the past
years, there was something to interest everyone,
from working machinery to delicate embroidery
work. And of course the majestic ritual of choos-
ing and crowning a queen was carried thru, add-
ing feminine lovliness to the affair. This year
pretty Miss May DeWitte of Englewood was the
lucky damsel, attended by six equally pretty
girls-Edna Eiserer, Englewood: Irene McGilli-
cuddy, Gage Park: Frances Kacusis, Lindblom:
Cathy Vacca C,alumet: Rose Capparelli, Hyde
Park, and Marion Schild of Harper.
Among the more unusual and interesting ex-
hibits were a minature steam-driven locomotive
with tender, completely hand built over a period
of four years: a Marionette show, all parts of
which were hand made by the owner, an eight
foot speedy auto racer: a novel, four-man "tow-
er" bike with an old time high Wheeler: twenty-
seven real-life pieces of fine taxidermy, and a
large display of artistic and intricate wood carv-
ings which started as scout work and lead to a
The model field was well represented with
ships, airplanes, trains, and autos. Old sailing
schooners, modern liners and waships, planes of
all kinds-big and little, wood and metal, with
gas motors, rubber band motors or just gliders, a
model auto racer that roared around, and a rep-
lica of one of the first railroad trains were there.
An exhibit with many interesting stories was
that of a collection of "ham" radio operator's cor-
respondence cards from stations from ninety-five
different countries all over the world, some now
Then there was the large collection of match
book covers, stamps, coins, and different oddit-
ies along with many examples of the ladies' skill

In the evening a program
which time the grand entree
of the Queen of the Hobby Show and her court
was held. Then, after selections by the Tech Band
exhibitions of the auto racer, "Blitz Krieg" bike,
model racer, tower and high Wheeler bike were
given followed by tunes played by the Park Man-
or Mothers' Novelty Band. Presentation of the
Safety Poster contest prizes closed the very enjoy-
able and successful exhibition for another year.
The Tilden P.T.A. deserves much credit for pro-
moting this fine show, and we hope they will re-
peat it for many years to come.
"New Horizons in Youth and Adult Education"
has been the theme of the Tilden P.T.A. for 1940-
41. lf the present Parent Teacher group has acc-
omplished anything at all, it is the fact that an
increasing number of Tilden parents are becom-
ing "school conscious", as evidenced by the large
attendence at their meetings and willingness on
the part of so many fathers and mothers to serve
on various P.T.A. committees. This year the P.T.
A. had 455 members and also 100 percent faculty
membership. This is the highest membership ever
achieved by the P.T.A. The Hobby show, spon-
sored by the P.T.A. had more entrants than ever
and a lovely queen and her court presided at
the Hobby show. The year 1940-41 has been a
very busy one and the co-operation between the
parents and the faculty has indeed been most
gratifying. The P.T.A. welcomed a new princi-
pal to Tilden, Mr. Frederick E. Price. The officers
of the P.T.A. who have served the school this
past two years desire to thank most sincerely,
all of the teachers, students and parents who
have rnade such a fine contribution to bring hon-
or and glory to Tilden.

Back in 1929, when our school was in its bud-
ding days, a new club, the Limner Club, under
the able sponsorship of Miss Bohman, was re-
corded in the annual Craftsman. This club like
any other needed a strong leader "to keep their
heads above water" until they could build a solid
foundation in the financial and social world.
These first club members and their leader set a
standard, a tradition-to build more and better
artists, to stimulate interest in the growing field
of art, and to build a larger vocabulary of art in
every student's mind. This tradition has been
carried on through the years by such leading art
students as Elmer Lenhardt of the '32 class, now
working in the Commercial Art Department of the
Chicago Art Center, and Anthony Sheclt of the
'34 class, now working in Walt Disney's Studio.
In 1937 Horace Allen won one of the largest art
contest prizes ever received by a Tildenite, in the
"Kindness to Animals" contest sponsored by the
Now in 1941, club president, Robert Hedmark
carries on in the footsteps of the old-timers, to help
perpetuate the old tradition.
The fifteen members of this club are working
in their own art mediums, some in cartoons, some
in pen and ink, others in oil painting, and then
there are others interested in water colors, stick
ink dawing , pencil or charcoal sketches, and
This club is open to all students who are really
interested in fine art.
ARTS 8. ARX CLUB
The members of Tilden's famous Arts and Arx
Club have just completed another successful
year with their giant thrill show, the "Chamber
of Horrors", from which they took in the immense
sum of S300.00, the most any circus show has ever
made. This club, founded and sponsored by Mr.
Lurie, is made up of boys taking the architectural
courses for the purpose of further developing
their interest in the profession they have chosen
to follow. With the fund drawn from the circus
they subscribe to all leading architectural maga-
zines and they spend their spare time practicing
various phases of drafting which are not includ-
ed in the regular course. There is another such
motive for this club, however, and that is to get
the boys placed in good jobs after they graduate.
Many firms, and former grads who took the
course, convinced that Tilden sends out some of
the best daftsmen, notify Mr. Lurie to send some
boys to them. They are, almost without excep-
tion, given jobs holding good opportunities for
advancement in the future.
The fellows in the Arts and Arx have proved
to the school that they are some of the most
artistic, most patient, and most courageous stu-
dents ever recorded as Tildenites. They have
spent months making huge and elaborate figures
which are really very terrifying to see. The
"Ghost of Honor" at the last circus was the mech-
anical mistake "ZYX", half man and half - - - ?

Bang! Bang! Bang! As one walks down the
Tilden corridors he is attracted by many unusual
sounds coming from the forge shop. The students
in there are shaping out screw drivers, center
punches, and many other tools.
As you enter the shop, a cloud of smoke hangs
low, and hot air from the fire pots hits your face.
Look here! Here is a boy about to make a
screw driver. Let's see how he does it. He's tak-
ing a piece of metal and stiching it into the big
pot. Boy, it's red hot now! Now he takes it out and
is carrying it to the anvil. Now he is shaping it
out with a hammer. It's taking shape rapidly. The
screw driver receives its handle and is ready for
a resistance test.
This shop, one of the biggest in the Chicago
high schools, is under supervision of three able
instructors, Mr. Buchanan, Mr. Palhman, and Mr.
When a Tilden Student is in his third or fourth
week of Foundry Shop work, one of his well es-
tablished beliefs is rudely upset.Up to ths time he
had thought of foundry work as plain labor with
little or no skill involved in it. During his first few
weeks he goes about the job with the attitude of
haphazard nonchalance. Surprised by his ill suc-
cess, he develops a new attitude of respect for
and admiration of the work. Gradually, his fin-
gers become more nimble, his motions more dex-
terous and finally he is able to Work to the satis-
faction of his instructors. His feeling of respect
for the work is heightened by one of the biggest
spectacles presented in the entire shop system,
the pouring of iron. This operation is accompanied
by a spirit of well ordered confusion, and is mark-
ed by the cool-headness of the instructors. The
procedure is not without danger, and the fact that
no Tilden boy has ever been injured is just another
tribute to the excellence of Tech instructors.

As a supplementary course in forge shop work,
Tilden students receive instruction for five weeks
in elementary welding. The past few years have
brought the welding industry to major importance:
therefore our forge shop instructors have enlarg-
ed the welding course to well over its former
scope. After their work in the welding portable,
the students are able to produce work that would
be satisfactory to the welding industry. This ach-
ievement of skill is a tribute to the quality of Tech
instruction. The industry will welcome the influx
of some of Tilden's finest students in this work,
thus giving our school still greater honors.

As an essential factor of the Defense Program
the machine shop is receiving full recognition of
its importance. Of all schools in Chicago very few
can compare with the machine shops of this
school. Being most adequately equipped for train-
ing purposes, they provide not only lathe Work,
but bench and metal training also. Of the machine
shop personnel, which consists of five teachers,
three instructors namely Mr. McGeoghegan, Mr.
Straka, and Mr. Kuehl provide practical lathe
work. Mr. Steven provides theory and book Work,
while the bench Work is under Mr. Mathie's super-
The shops besides having a well trained per-
sonnel have also a variety of types of lathes and
machines, which enable students to become
acquainted not only with the various types of
lathes but with the shapvis milling machine,
planers, punch and drill presses also, which are
found in every well equipped machine shop. The
Work engaged in usually combines the use of
several of these machines. The seemingly
simple work of tiling, properly called bench work,
teaches the proper use of hack-saw, the different
types of files, and the drill press.
The woodshop is ususally the first taken in a
Tilden student's course of shops during his high
school career. Being the basic material from
which things are constructed, and possibly the
easiest to handle, wood is the logical beginning
material. The students, after their first prelimin-
ary instructions in the care and use of the tools
used, make chips fly with reckless abandon. The
degrees of success connected with this first ven-
ture range from dismal to horrible failure. Soon
this situation is corrected and toward the end of
their first semester, the students are actually de-
signing and building their own projects, some of
which are masterpieces of construction.
Connected with elementary woodturning. Spec-
ial instructions are received in this art for a per-
iod of five Weeks.
This fundamental training is the background
for pattern making, taken up in the student's next
shop. Work here is naturally required to be a
great deal more accurate than ordinary wood-
work, because it is the basis for work in the metal
trades. Our Pattern Shops represent an investment
of thousands of dollars in special hand and mach-
ine tools and possess every imaginable wood-
working aid in order to help the boys to come as
near to perfection as possible.
After having taken one year of wood-working
many boys decide to make a career of it. Desir-
ing more knowledge, they continue their studies
in advanced wood, or model shop. While their
work here is confined to the building of ship mod-
els, they get practical experience in all types of
woodworking problems. They may choose any
project, from a model of a Spanish galleon to a
power racing boat. These examples illustrate two
extremities of ship model building. With the gall-
eon goes a maze of details and fine work, while
the racing boat, on the other hand, requires more
robust and accurate construction.
The caliber of Worker being turned out by the
Tech woodshop instructors is a fitting tribute to
the all-around superiority of Tilden, and we may
be assured that the leaders in the wood-working
field of tomorrow will be composed to a large ex-
tent of Tilden graduates.

The auto shop is a well equipped place for
those who desire to study the automobile and its
many intricate parts. There is a section of a mod-
ern Pontiac car. There are many motor blocks of
various types and wheel assemblies about the
shop. The boys are taught literally, "what makes
the wheel go 'round."
The boys also deal with another phase of the
automobile, the manufacturing end, for every
semester they take a trip to the Ford Motor Plant,
where they see how the cars are put together on
the assembly line.
In the shop the boys are taught to cope with al-
most any trouble that may arise. They learn how
to grease a car, how to clean and repack the
wheels, how to solder and weld, and how to time.
clean, and adjust the motor. These are but a few
of the many things that are taught.

No doubt Tilden has one of the finest typo-
graphy courses in the city. Linotyping and press
room work are taught as well as basic handset-
ting. To gain experience along the finer lines of
the trade the print shops combine their efforts the
year 'round to turn out the Tilden Tech Times, our
superb annual. Then, too, work is done for the
Parent-Teachers Association and other Tilden or-
ganizations. All forms and blanks used in the
school, such as dismissal passes, absence slips,
and programs for social events are printed in our
It can be readily stated that Mr. Keating's lino-
type shop does the bulk of the work. In this shop
are six linotype machines which set all different
faces of type. Two of these machines are in con-
tinuous operation setting the Times. Under the
close scrutiny and careful supervision of Mr. Van
Artsen the students in the pressroom lock the
Times and Craftsman forms in the press and do
the actual printing. Mr. Gleason and Mr. Maivald
teach the basic handsetting classes.
Many fellows at Tilden who are planning to
follow aeronautical vocations after graduation
enroll in the aircraft shops where they receive all
preliminary training, except actual flying from
the instructors, Mr. Christensen and Mr. Burg-
chardt. ln the Aircraft Shop the boys learn about
the designing and building of the airplane fusi-
lage and wings by actual work and from theory.
This training is the same as given in the National

of the airplane itself is the designing and main-

Two of the most modern and best equipped
shops in the city are Tilden's electric shops locat-
ed in the north-east wing where Mr Haskell and
Mr. Timme instruct the students in the fundament-
als of lighting, the installation of electrical fixtures,
various methods of wiring, and almost every con-
ceivable type of workin the field of electricity.
Tilden's stage crew which handles the lighting
and public address during all the assemblies pre-
sented is composed of boys in the advanced
group of electricity shop students. Those handl-
ing the lighting are instructed by Mr. Timme while
Mr Haskell has control of the public address sy-
The electric shops play an important part in
Tilden's National Defense Program. After high
schools hours are over men are allowed to use
the shops to complete their training in electricity
so that they may secure positions in industry.
Their training is guided by special instructors hir-
ed by the government.
Under the paternal guidance of Instructors Ren-
nie and Haskell, work the world's future Marconis
in one of Tilden's most modern and unique shops,
the radio shop. Here the boys learn the funda-
mentals of wireless and reception, both in theory
and in actual practice. They have at their dis-
posal some of the best equipped shops in the
high school system. Beginners start with element-
ary projects like one or two tube receivers, ad-
vance slowly, building amplifiers, modulators,
etc., until they become veritable "Hams" at the
game. Advanced students are now studying and
experimenting with the latest of radio discoveries,
frequency modulation. The quality of work turn-
ed out by these advanced boys compares favor-
ably with that of much of the skilled labor in the
radio field, and many boys take five and six
semesters of radio work in order to prepare them-
selves for their life's work in this field. Indeed,
some of those now engaged in this work at Til-
den may be the "big wheels" of Tomorrow's radio

all the "Times" pictures.

CIVIC INDUSTRIAL CLUB
For the sole purpose of promoting better ac-
quaintance between the students and the large
industrial organizations, Chicago's Chamber of
Commerce started the Civic Clubs in Chicago
High Schools. Away back in 1914 Miss Sass, the
former assistant Principal of Tilden, organized the
Civic Industrial Club at Tilden. These clubs were
called C.I.C. for short.
The C.I.C. contributes from its own treasury
to many charities such as the Bed Cross, Thanks-
giving collections, and many others. It is how-
ever, a very conservative organization and has
been known as one since its very beginning.
In all these years a radical change has not tak-
en place in the C.I.C. with the exception that it
has grown to be so large that it even has organ-
izations within itself, one being the group that
plans the student trips under the able supervision
of Mr. Parkhill.
With slogans and assemblies as the main topics
of discussion of the past the club has worked hard
toward these two subjects, but the ever present
topics of sportsmanship, spirit of clean-up for the
school and community, participation in the Par-
ent and Teacher's Association, and pictures for
the yearbook were discussed.
The C.I.C. started and has kept promoting such
famous and worthy causes as the Tilden Tech
Circus and Homecoming, and the Tilden Tech
Hobby Show. The C.I.C. is without a doubt the
most important club within the school.
This year under the leadership of Mr. Wood the
officers-Robert Schafer, president: Morris Ez-
zell, vice-president: George Spear, secretary: and
Hebert Post, treasurer-did geat things to better

The Achievement Dinner, goal of every enter-
prising, ambitious Tildenite, is our own annual
event given over to rewarding Tilden's outstand-
ing citizens in scholarship, service, and sports
for their efforts during the past years. For twenty
years now Tilden has been the only high school
in the city to thus show its appreciation of the
students' efforts: therefore, to receive an invita-
tion is an honor long to be remembered.
This year, on Ianuary 9, 221 Techmen enjoyed
the fine dinner at the Stock Yards Inn and wit-
nessed the impressive ceremony of the pesenta-
tion of the Shield, Sword, and Buckler, took part
in the hearty goup singing, and heard an inter-
esting talk by Mr. Ierry Peck, an alumnus, on
the advantages gained by a technical educa-
The outstanding members of the graduating
classes did brilliantly in the highlight of the even-
ing-the presentation of the Shield, Sword, and
Buckler, which replaced the traditional candle
lighting. With the tools of the medieval knight
as the theme, the boys illustrated how the same
ideals and standards of that time are still im-
portant to the successful life of today.
The Shield was symbolic of the shield of the
knight of old. Upon becoming a knight, a young
man had to go out and prove his worth-do good,
keep pure, protect and help those in need-before
his plain shield was emblazened. So it is today.
The four divsions on the Shield stood for the four
great achievements - Scholarship, Sportsman-
ship, Citizenship, and Manhood. Each one has its
own part in developing the leader of tomorrow.
The Sword was symbolic of personal integrity.
The Hilt stood for God, for the stronghold of truth
and good to which one can cling. The Blade
symbolized rightousness and knowledge which
cut through and destroy evil and ignorance.
The Buckler stood for the protector of our sov-
ereign rights, our institutions, life, liberty, and
the pursuit of happiness. It was a reminder that
we must keep up a constant vigil so that these
things we cherish so are never destroyed. Fol-
lowing this inspiring ceremony Mr. Ierry Peck,
successful alumnus, gave the boys a timely talk
concerning technical education and how it
prepares the boys for the many varied fields of
wok. And so ended a very enjoyable evening
and no boy present felt he had worked for it in

Each year our Social Studies Department com-
petes for several honors in history and civics ex-
aminations which are held for high school stu-
dents. This past year Tilden students have again
brought honors to their school in the form of prizes
in city and nation-Wide contests.
Six students of Mrs. Gentleman's classes parti-
cipated in the three-hour National Competative
Examination on tthe League of Nations held on
April fourth. The two best papers, those of Iohn
Pauga and Albert Pteithmaier, were chosen to be
sent to the League of Nations Association which
sponsored the nation-wide contest. Other boys
who took the examination Were Michael Seruya,
lack Schmidt, Albert Rudman, and Raymond Witt-
berg. Although none of the boys won prizes, Al-
bert Reithmaier received a certificate of merit
from the Association.
Two other honors that came to our Social
Studies Department were third place in the city-
wide Lincoln essay contest and first place in the
radio quiz program on American history and
civics, sponsored by the Hub, called the "High
School Aces." Nicholas Fuhs, who has a reputa-
tion as a shark in modern history and civics.
walked away with the first prize of ten dollars. In
the essay contest, sponsored by the Chicago
Women's Club, the subject this year was "Lincoln
and Democracy." Albin Stravinskas' paper, chos-
as the best among the Tilden entries, won third
prize among the all city entries. There was no
money prize for third place but the winner was
a guest at a special luncheon where the prize
winning essays were read over the air.
From the February and Iune classes of 1941
William Smith and Victor Petchul, with alternates
Iack Emmet, Waler Landini and George Cook,
were chosen by the faculty as students most repre-
sentative of good citizenship. Smith and Petchul
were guests at the Annual Civic Assembly Lunch-
eon held for the best citizens from all the Chicago
high schools in the LaSalle Hotel on Apri 25,
1941. At this time Wm. Smith, who had previously
received a scholarship at Iohn's Hopkins Univer-
sity, was awarded a scholarship at the Univer-
sity ot Chicago.

Today, fifteen years later, the club has enlarg-
ed its program to include taxidemy, making and
mounting of bird cages, and microscopic Work. Of
the two trips allowed the club each semester, one
was made to the ever popular Brookfield Zoo
Where the boys enjoyed themselves as well as
studied animal life at first hand. The other trip
was to the annual Stock Show at the International
A special committee was incorporated by the
officers of the club last semester. It is the duty of
this committee to protect the elm trees that bor-
der our school. They inspect the trees for ter-
mites, decay, or damage that might have been
incurred. Methods practiced to prevent decay and
ward off termites have been employed by the
committee. The grass surrounding our school is
also cared for by this group.
Officers for the past semester were. Michal
Wenth, president: Melvin Wiere, vice-president:
Donald Iohnson, secretary: and Alex Padlarny,
treasurer. These officers have already chosen
the clubs emblem for the coming year.
Having its origin in 1915, the Honor Club is one
of the oldest clubs in the school. Miss Laura M.
Wright, the former assistant principal of Tilden,
was the first sponsor of the Honor Club. Since that
time the Honor Club has been doing great things
under such sponsors as Miss Mary McQuade,
Miss Alice Wrench, and finally, Miss Mildred
Lawler, who has guided the club since May, 1932.
The main objective of the club is to stimulate high
scholarship and citizenship among the students,
and it, therefore, willingly supports all projects
and campaigns toward the betterment of the
school. Each year the Honor Club participates in
the Circus by either selling roses or sponsoring a
show. It also co-operates with the P.T.A. on
Mother's Day. The boys in the club serve the
school by working in the office, bookroom, attend-
ence office, or in the library. Frequently the boys
take charge of a room when a teacher is called
out on an emergency.
The officers this year are Iohn Basich, pres-
ident: Albin Stravinskas, secretary: Harry Watch-
ek, secretary: and Phillip Hodson, treasurer. The
emblem of the Honor Club is a small gold "T"
with "Honor" engraved across the bar and "C.l.
C." at the bottom of the stem. Each suceeding
semester that a boy is eligible for the club, he re-
ceives an additional bar on the stem.
The Honor Club has a membership of two hun-
dred and twenty-five boys who not only lead in
scholarship, but who are often found at the head
of many school activities.
The Chem Club, sponsored by Mr. Goodrich,
is a charter member of the American Institute of
Science and Engineering Clubs and was estab-
lished to create a keener interest in science.
Holding its meetings on the second Wednesday
of the month, the Chem Club, an extra curricular
activity, is open to all students of chemistry. This
semester the club had an attendance of about
Demonstrations and talks on current science
topics given at each meeting are made by the

Talks and demonstrations given, which are of
interest to all, are on modern developments of
chemistry which could not be taken up in classes
due to a shortage of time. Demonstrations held
this semester were on thermit welding, liquid air,
and burning water. Interesting talks were on fa-

SU RVEYOR'S CLUB
Many state universities now require all en-
gineering students, in their first semester, to take
a course in plane surveying.
Such courses require the student to attain pro-
ficiency not only in the necessary mathematics
and the theory of measurements, but also in the
actual manipulation of instruments in office and
field alike. Furthermore, a first hand acquaint-
ance with land lines, with government surveys,
and with modern field-practise is imperative.
Obviously, any previous preparation in sur-
veying, on the part of the student, gives him a
great advantage in his first year's university work.
It was with the forgoing facts at hand, that Til-
den was equipped to give to advanced pupils
training in surveying. Only aggressive and for-
ward looking students are asked to join the Sur-
veyor's Club. From half a dozen to a score of
members may take the course at a time. Black-
board exercises and lectures prepare members
to do the actual work of reducing field notes to
form for plotting land tracts and profiles and for
The definite results required from the field work
are to learn the necessity for accuracy in measur-
ing and for care in making notes.
That the provisions for training in surveying is
well worth the effort required is demonstrated by
each succeeding group of students who report
from their first semester in college that they have
been able to complete with a minimum of effort,
the course in plane surveying.
"Top notch" describes the program presented
by the mathematics department on Friday, March
14th. Directed by Mrs. Lutz with the cooperation
of the Choral and Service Clubs, the assembly
stressed the importance of mathematics in every
day life as well as in trades and professions.
The main purpose of the assembly was to bring
out the necessity of advanced math to the students
of technical high schools. The show illustrated the
advancing trend of civilization and the increased
demands on the students to cope with these new
ideas and situations.
A little skit portrayed the old time astrologer's
idea of the mystic character of numbers in com-
parison with the precision of a modern day
The program was accentuated by a poet who
tore his hair as he composed a poem on math-
ematics, a tap dancer who illustrated the math-
ematical basis of his routine, two singers who
applied math in the content of their song, and two
pianists who by math demonstrated fractions.
Iohn Yarmola was joined by the choral club in a
little jive concerning "many cheerful facts about
the square of the hypotenuse".
The program concluded with a song, "We Are
Engineers", by the Choral club, who displayed
cards bearing the names of twenty different uses
of math in the construction of bridges and sub-

A jolly group! Who are they? They are the boys who get together
once a month on Friday afternoon and join in the gaiety that is al-
ways to be had at the meetings of "Der Deutsche Verein."
Tilden's halls ring with the enthusiastic singing of the club song,
"Der Deutsche Verein," which opens every meeting. Talks by mem-
bers on the life, customs, literature, and industries of the German
people give a more serious turn to the program. The playing of
games and solving of puzzles give practice in the use of the lang-
uage and help the boys to get acquainted. The singing of the jolly
folk songs gets everyone in a good mood. The ideals of the club are
expressed in this German poem:
"Sei ehrlich, redlich, fleissig, treu.
In deinem Dienst so schwer er sei:
Denn Fleiss und Treu und reine Hand
Geht, wie man sagt, durchs ganze Land."
The officers of the German club are: Ernest Heidinger, president:
Robert Johnson, vice-president: Edward Wall, secretary: Vincent De
Tolve, treasurer: and Miss Rose J. Seitz, sponsor.
One of the liveliest and most active organizations of the school
is the French Club, known as Le Cerle Francais. This club is open
to all boys in the French classes, those having previously taken
French, and all who are interested in the language.
The meetings, which are held once a month to promote sociabil-
ity and interest in the language, provide an opportunity for the boys
to converse in French. Entertainment is provided in the form of
music, both vocal and instrumental, games, reports, and short stor-
ies. One of the most enjoyable features of the program is the sing-
ing of the French songs in which all members take part.
The club is ably managed by its recently elected officers: John
Boinski, president: Edward Dhuysser, vice-president: William Davis,
secetary: and James Burg, treasurer. Proving that they were
capable the offices very quickly saw to it that the members were
given emblems to show they were members of Tilden's French

PAN - AMERICAN CLUB
Pan-American unity, friendship, and peace and a better under-
standing of the customs and arts of our near neighbors is the two-
fold purpose of our Tilden Pan-American club.
Its members, Tech Spanish students, are learning much about
these picturesque countries and their inhabitants, customs, arts,
work, and play. This not only helps them in the Good Neighbor
drive, but it is also a great help in the classroom. There is something
new at every meeting. Miss Friedman, the present sponsor, has had
several movies of the southern countries. She teaches the boys many
of the beautiful old Latin melodies together with the rhythmic pop-
ular tunes, and when it comes to relating experiences of her travels
to Mexico the boys are "all ears." We can really be proud of this
club for they are certainly doing their part toward improving our
Western Hemisphere relations.

TILDEN TECI-I TIMES
In the city of Tilden the newspaper performs
that important function for which it is so justly
famous. True to the traditions of newspapermen,
the members of the staff of the Tilden Tech Times
willingly sacrifice their own time and energy in
the interest of their publication. The same spirit
of self-sacrifice has resulted in the production of
a newspaper outstanding in the annals of high
school journalism. The Tilden Tech Times is a
credit to its staff and an honor to the school which
The function of the paper is quite obvious. Til-
den is in itself a small city. Its community spirit
can be developed only through a spirit of sports-
manship and common interest. In the develop-
ment of this spirit, no force is more powerful than
the interesting and well written newspaper,
which serves to acquaint every Tildenite with
the activities of the many organizations in the
school. Clubs, sports, musical organizations, and
the outstanding boys of the year find a space in
the columns of the Times. The game with Lind-
blom, the band contest, R.O.T.C., track meets, bas-
ketball and baseball games and other Tech tri-
umphs all live again in the paper and back files
of the Times.
To produce this fine art of journalism meant
much hard work on the part of the sponsors, Miss
Gallagher and Miss Kritzer. The business advisor.
Mr. Stone and his staff are always busily engag-
ed in obtaining ads. Talent, skill in writing, and
qualities of leadership have obtained for 4A boys
the positions of page editors. Under their super-
vision, the entire staff functions in an orderly way.
and accomplished a very great deal in the short
time they are allotted to get the Times in good
shape for the press and the school.
At journalistic meetings held during the past
two years the Times has been awarded two sup-
erior ratings by the National Scholastic Press
Association. Individual honors were also plenti-
ful, as editorials and stories by the staff members
received certificates. Each semester, four to six
members received coveted Quill and Scroll key.
Each member of the Times is a journalist in him-
self, and the interesting articles and brief accur-
ate news stories are proof of this skill in writing.
Every Tilden student eagerly awaits the issues
of our paper, for here, in four well-edited pages.
the news and events of the city of Tilden and its
thousands of inhabitants are presented in an en-
joyable and easily read style.

Paper to the front of them! Pencils to the sides of them! Erasers to

scribs, by sufficient material to Write, for you, the liveliest, most
interestng and enjoyable prep annual ever put out. Yes, sir, the
Craftsman editorial staff with Vic Petchul as editor-in-chief, has
concentrated for many long hours in developing ct book the school
can be mighty proud of. Under the sponsorship of Mrs. Aldrich, hard
Working English teacher, our struggling journalists have gathered
up the events which have passed in revue during the past year and
have tried hard to present them to you in an interesting, informal
manner. It is up to this group to put together the things that make
up the most cherished memories of our school days. We hope We've
While the Writers are busy pushing their pencils, the art staff is
kept moving right along planning and laying out the construction of
the annual. The appearance of it, beauty, proper division, entertain-
ing cartoons are some of the responsible tasks heaped on this en-
ergetic group. This year these lads, guided early in the year by Mr.
McCurry and then taken over by Mr. Gleason, print shop teacher,
revolutionized the make-up completely. Modern design, new divis-
ion, more and better pictures typifying our daily school life, car-
toons and caricatures that add that touch of humor-all were part of
the plans to make it an A-l yearbook.
After the written copy has been edited and pronounced fit and
the designers and artists are through putting everything in shape,
there is yet the trival task remaining of printing the book. Or is it
trivial? When the material comes rolling in behind schedule, when
the articles suddenly disappear into nowhere, when the cuts get mix-
ed up, and the explanations are missing, then the printers start to
sprout gray hairs and Sponsors Mr. Van Artsen, Mr. Keating, and
Mr. Maivald develop cases of severe futile exasperation. And you
can't blame them: but everything always turns out for the best, and
they really do a fine job.
Then, We must not forget the business staff. These hard working
fellows absorb all the financial headaches of the book. They collect
the money from the seniors, divisions, and from organizations for
the pictures: they solicit ads, collect the subcriptions, prepare the
advertising, besides taking care of bills and other money Worries.
These strong silent men deserve much praise.
In the last decade the Radio has become such
an integral part of our lives that it is hard for us
to imagine a day without listening to a musical
program, a news broadcast, or some other enter-
taining concoction wafted to us magically over
the ether waves. Scarcely a family is without a
radio and it is hard to guess how many hours per
day each of us listens to it. One nationwide poll
stated that boys and girls of school age spent
more time listening to the radio than they spent
in school. Thus we realize that the Radio forms
a vital part of our lives and is an educational as
well as recreational asset.
At Tilden the influence of the Radio has per-
meated most of the departments. Not only do we
study the theory of radio technique and the con-
struction of the Radio in the shops, but we apply
its use in all the departments. History, science,
economics, English, drawing, language, and
math classes are assigned programs to listen to
and report on. Nor are We always at the receiving
end of the microphone. Several times this past
year Tilden has been represented on national as
well as local hook-ups. Shortly after our last
year's Craftsman went to the press Ioe Morrison,
1940 graduate was interviewed over the Hobby-
lobby show in Washington, D.C. where he had
flown by airplane as an award for winning the
hobby show contest here at Marshall Field's. On
March 29th Nicholas Fuhs won a ten dollar award
on the Rothschild program, broadcast from the
Palace theatre over WGN, for answering the most
questions on topics of current interest. Shortly be-
fore the circus Victor Petchul was interviewed on

In order to familiarize Tilden students with the
technique of radio production, the school has pur-
chased a recording machine which records the
voices, plays back the record, and also has a
public address system. Public speaking and
music classes have already utilized the machine,
mainly for the purpose of letting individual pupils
make records and listen to their own recordings
thus realizing any defects they may possess for
microphone technique. Next year it is hoped that
the best recitations, round-table discussions,
science experiments and all outstanding pupil
projects will be recorded on the machine for per-
manent use. Then all departments will have their
best programs "on the platter" to be broadcast at
any time they maybe useful or effective and Til-
den will prove to be a workshop for all types of
R. O. T. C.

GUIDONS AND GUIDES
Exactingly trained for a duty demanding expert cadence, ex-
ceptional neatness, utmost dependability, and a superior know-
ledge of drill and theory, the guides and guidons of the Tilden
R.O.T.C. regiment are considered the best in non-commission-
To the guide-sergeant falls the responsibility of supplying
his company with the assurance that they are presenting a uni-
form and impressive appearance. Situated at the head of the
platoon, he sets the cadence and alignment of his entire pla-
The guidon-sergeant carries the company emblem-a small
pennant attached to a seven foot staff, and marches one pace
behind and three paces directly to the left of his company com-
mander. Each guidon-sergeant is exceptionally neat, and be-
cause of his position he is expected to be an example fo1' the
A very successful year has just been completed by the Tech
B.O.T.C. Rifle Team, under Cdt. Major lack F. Schmidt, team
captain, and Technical Sergeant Michael I. Moore, military
instructor and team sponsor.
All matches against individual schools were won this year
without exception. With the experience gained in these prac-
tice matches the team felt ready to enter the all important
Hearst Trophy, Corps Area, and Inter-City matches held an-
nually. The Hearst Trophy match was the first to be fired, but
the team failed to place. However, they made up for this miss
in the Corps Area and Inter-City matches by placing nine-
teenth in the Iunior R.O.T.C. school classification, in the entire
Sth Corps Area, eighth in the entire city, and first in the south
section fthe last two being the Inter-City placesl.
Rifle Marksmanship is classified as a major R.O.T.C. sub-
ject, and these members of the team firing in the Inter-City
match receive a special "T" letter award.
ECCENTRIC DRILL TEAM
Originally organized as a means of recreation for the officers
of the unit, the "Monks" as the group is commonly called, has
been built up into the only R.O.T.C. organization of its kind in
the city. Consisting of twelve members divided equally into
two sections, one doing the righthanded and the other the left-
handed drill, the Eccentric Drill Team can point proudly to a
service record of long efficient achievements. Known primar-
ily to the Tech students as a much welcomed form of entertain-
ment at the more important assemblies, the group has also per-
formed for the American Legion and at the City Hall. Under
the able direction of Cadet Second Lieutenant Iohn A. Hulko-
wich, the team's manual has been greatly increased to the pre-
sent number of thirty-three movements and has three more to
Owing to the increase in the officers' duties, Sgt. Moore has
since allowed cadets and "non-coms" with a knowledge of rifle
drill to enroll in the organization.

Of unparalleled efficiency are the capable, efficient Tech
Fireguards. Under the able sponsorship of the Military In-
structor, Technical Sergeant Michael I. Moore, and supervi-
sion of Sergeant Russell I. Levin, his assistant, the organiza-
tion is commanded by a veteran member of two years-Cadet
Major Meade L. Hanger.
Organized primarily to conduct the fire drills held each
month, the unit consists of seventy-one cadets divided U-
mong thirteen posts, eight of which comprise door guards,
four are floor patrols, and one post is in charge of the fire

Here's an R.O. unit that has really gone to town and brought
back flying colors - the city chamionship Tech Picked Platoon!
Once more for the sixth time out of seven competitions, an ex-
pert Tech platoon has captured the first place position! In the
platoon competition begun in 1938, Tilden won second place
but placed first in 1939, '40 and '41.
Permitted only ten minutes in which to execute its man-
euvers, the platoon "fell out" on the floor, businesslike in every
respect, amid the thunderous applause.
Losing only a few points for necrtness, the platoon then mov-
ed to the center of the floor to drill. The armory became ab-
solutely quiet for the first time, with everyone watching and
waiting for the mistake that would defeat the platoon. As usual
the Tech lads marched in perfect form, and as they left the
floor the spectators went "wild": even the "boos" so evident
earlier has disappeared!
The Tilden unit had displayed the spirit and precision that
has brought it and the preceding platoons victory! In the clos-
est competition of all time the unit has, due to its unexcelled
training and leadership, won another championship plaque.
Order out of chaos is achieved at Tech student assemblies
by the conscientious, efficient work of the R.O.T.C. ushers. Con'
sisting of fifty-five members, the ushers are sponsored by Tech-
nical Sergeant Moore, and headed by Cdt. Col. Deeley as cadet
supervisor. The organization is commanded by Cadet Major
Arthur L. Adams.
Organized primarily to maintain order at the various Tech
gatherings and to force fire regulations during such assemblies
the ushers have attained a splendid record through the years
by efficient and painstaking service. Cadets volunteering for
service are given twenty hours credit a semester toward a civic

Continued efficiency, faithfulness, and earnest service in
the Tilden regiment also has its reward. Not only medals, bars,
or letters are given for excellent service-but the most cherish-
ed reward of them all-the much sought after officers' com-
Cadet Lieutenant Colonel William F. Deeley commands the
unit, aided by Cadet Major Harry G. Smith as Regimental Ex-
ecutive Officer, and Cadet Majors Arthur L. Adams and Meade
L. Hanger as battalion commanders.
The unit is composed of thirty-eight officers, ninety-two non-
commissioned officers, and two hundred ninety-five cadets-a
total of four-hundred and twenty-five students enrolled in the
championship Tech unit. Technical Sergeant Michael I. Moore
ably directs the unit as Military Instructor.
Vital to the success of any military organization is its group
of non-commissioned officers-often called the "backbone" of
a unit. They receive their orders from the officers, but directly
control the privates, who, of course, make up the large part of
the regiment. Hence, much importance is attached to their in-
To meet the need for special, complete instruction, Techni-
cal Sergeant Michael I. Moore established a special school for
"non-coms" not engaged in other R.O.T.C. activities during the
period for instruction. Cadets interested in the instruction offer-

geant Frank L. Whitmer, First Battalion Sergeant Major, and
Cdt. Sergeant Robert L. Dasper, Second Battalion Sergeant
Sixteen years of active, efficient service - an enviable
record!! Several other school organizations can boast of a
longer time of service, but few can even approach the service
record held by the efficient and necessary R.O.T.C. Military
Known to "Frosh" and Senior alike as the 'M.P.'s', the or-
ganization boasts of over sixty members, who are divided
among eight posts. The police are commmanded by the cap-
able, efficient Cadet Captain Edward T. Lantry, a veteran of
the organization - having joined in September, 1938. Technical
Sergeant Moore sponsors the group, aided by the Assistant
Military Instructor, acting as the supervisor.
Of the eight separate posts, numbers one, four, five, and
six are the street-car loading posts: posts two and three are
traffic and student direction units: while post seven actively
combats the tendency for many to hitchike by reporting them
to the principal. Post eight patrols the school grounds and vi-
cinity to enforce the no-smoking rule.

ember, 1938, when equipment was purchased,
and forty-five boys enrolled in the organization.
Mr. Stanley M. Pinski, instructor of several out-
standing corps in the city, was secured as music
instructor, and to him goes much of the credit for
the fine showing the Tech Drum and Bugle Corps
has made in its many public appearances.
Music contributes to the very life-blood of democratic liv-
ing, for life in a democracy must be emotional. It must give
freedom to express the feelings from Within. It must engender
the moods to bolster the fighting spirit against demoraliza-
tion. It must involve the spirit of going forward again with
head up, in faith and hope. Emotions are common to all man-
kind. Music is a universal language: it has power to express
heights and depths and shades of human feeling that can be
expressed in no other language. Music offers an opportunity
for international understanding.

LIBERTY POST CITATION
Among Tilden's many trophies and shields there
hangs a little noticed but none-the-less important cit-
ation from the American Legion Liberty Post, 779, to the
Tilden High School band and Capt. H. Stube, director,
-"in recognition of unseltish distinguished sevice to
and loyal cooperation" with the post in observance ot
Armistice Day, 1939-40, "in promoting a program for
the betterment of the community, state, and nation."
Another example of the fine spirit and willingness to
seve of our own Tilden band.
The drummers bang, the cymbals clang, the mu-
sic's simply grand. Boy, we'd sit all day cmd hear
them play-they're the Tilden High School band.
Yes, sir, this is the group you hear playing faith-
fully and faultlessly throughout the year, at as-
semblies, the football games, P.T.A. meetings, and
other school activities.
Under the very capable guidance of Capt. How-
ard Stube, this organization has risen from medio-
crity to top-flight. They have consistantly won
high honors and ratings in competitions and their
audiences always compliment them highly where-
ever they play.
As usual, they have had a very busy year.
During the fall they were always out there at
the football games bolstering spirits and adding
color and pep to the occasion. Practically every
school assembly enjoyed their martial and clas-
sical numbers and they entertained at several
P.T.A. meetings. Their services at the Hobby
Show and at the assembly hall show Circus night
were invaluable and again they did a fine job
at the commencement exercises, as they have in
'During this last year Capt. Stube has had some
outstanding musicians under his wing. There was
Norman Halverson who took second place in the
Chicago Public High School solo contest with his
tuba and Robert Doll who took third place in cor-
net competition, but probably the most talented
boy he has ever had was Harold Hebele, just
graduated. Harold Won first place, a medal, and
an "S" with his sax in the high school competi-
tion. He's first clarinetist in our band and is stu-
dent director. But most important of all, he has
won a music scholarship to Coe College, Cedar
Rapids, Iowa, through his beautiful playing and
high recommendation by Capt. Stube .He has
been heard and complimented by Glen Gray and
Glen Miller and has been offered a job by or-
chestra leader Tony DePardo. This coming
August first he will guest conductor of the Staun-
ton, Ill. city band. It's his hometown. His ambi-
tion to be a band director and music teacher

The beginning of the present semester brought
a change in our Orchestra Department. Mr. Mor-
ris Gomberg, a graduate of the Iuilliard School
of Music in New York replaced Mr. Bernard Fis-
cher, our former director for twelve years, as
leader of the concert orchestra.
Notwithstanding the unexpected change, the
boys by dint of hard Work and serious applica-
tion, earned themselves an "E" rating in the an-
nual all-city orchestra contest held at Tuley High.
The numbers which they played at this event
were "Buorree" by Bach, and "The Cavalier" by
The selections the orchestra plays at assem-
blies and other programs are all standard music,
arranged especially for high school orchestras.
"Largo" from the "New World Symphony", "The
Entrance and March of the Peers", and the "Cor
onation March" are typical of selections they
play for P.T.A. meetings, grammar school as-
semblies, and other social functions. The orches-
tra plays an important part in two of our biggest
enterprises, the Circus and the Hobby Show
As string instruments comprise the main sec-
tion of a concert orchestra, they have been the
most popular with Tilden boys. Included in this
group are violins, violas, cellos, and basses. In
the wind goup there are clarinets, oboes, bas-
sons, flutes, French horns, saxaphones, mello-
phones, trumpets, and trombones. Our orchestra
also possesses some percussion instruments.
For a small rental fee, a boy may make use of
any orchestral instrument of their choosing for
a period of one semester. Many capable music-
ians have been turned out by our orchestra de-
partment with no previous instruction as a foun-
dation , an example of the benefits gained from
participation in our extra-curricular activties.
In connection with the running of the orchestra,
goes a maze of details, unapparent to the public
eye. Librarians, who take care of the music, music
folders, stands, and chairs are indispensable to
practice sessions and public performances.
Students are classified according to their abil-
ity and seniority. After passing their beginning
stage, the students go into the intermediate stage.
Thei ultimate goal is the concert class. Those who
have successfully qualified for this honor have
completed the first step toward world recognition
in the field of music.

Among the very active musical organizations
that Tilden boasts are the Choral Clubs. Directed
by Miss M. Mullen, the two groups supply enter-
tainment at numerous school activities. Student
interest in the classics is encouraged and many
hidden musical talents are brought out in the in-
dividuals by these organizations. When com-
bined the two clubs number one-hundred and
Probably claiming the Choral Clubs most fre-
quently are the school assemblies. At the Math
Skit they offered soloists as well as group
singing. Tom Davis turned in a very appreciable
performance as Mandy, the colored cook, sing-
ing Shortenin' Bread. The annual Christmas Par-
ty, held in the assembly hall, heard the famous
carols that are appropriate for such an occasion,
and then, for the Patriotic Rally later that year,
they rendered stirring marches and Irving Berlin's
God Bless America. Tunes of the Civil War and
World War days were presented in a medley
for the Memorial Day program.
The Choral Clubs' contribution at circus time
was that Mexican Nite Club "El Patio". They co-
operated with the Service Club to make it the hit
of the show. Crooner Anthony Bedalov warbled
Maria Elena and Catro Vidas to the lovely maid-
ens present. Senior Don McCall, another member
of the Choral Club, serenaded with his guitar
and tenor voice, a senorita perched daintily in
a balcony window. The "senorita" who replied
in lilting soprano was Senor Pellegrini. The Chor-
al Clubs' members comprised the patrons of "EI
Patio" and offered to the festivities Amapola and
Siboney. Gus Zambos, the Choral Clubs' accom-
pianist, introduced a tune of his own composi-
tion called Wake Up To Love that was received
with an enthusiastc ovation.
The clubs also entertained the Tilden Parent-
Teachers Association's Father's Night program
and at the Henderick's P.-T.A., too. A quartet com-
posed of Herbert Post, Robert Hedmark, James
Hill, and Thomas Davis harmonized on Morning
at the annual Achievement Dinner.
Competing in the Choral Competition held at
Harrison High in January, Tilden won the high
rating of E. Their selections were Oh Peaceful
Night and Laudamus.

It is considered one of the highest honors to be
a member of the Lettermen's Club. A member of
this organization is not just a symbol of athle-
tic prowess, he is more than that. A Letterman is
an example of the well rounded abilities of the
Tilden students. Yes, he received his major T for
participation on one of the noted teams of the
Blue and Gold, but to be eligible for this coveted
award the youth, and indeed he is that because
the high school competition is limited to boys
twenty years old and under, rnust maintain his
scholarship at an appreciable level.
As a group the Lettermen consider their first
duty to prevent students from wearing athletic
letters not duly earned by the individual. No dras-
tic steps can be taken to prevent this: however,
by making the offender's infraction of the laws of
the club public he can be humiliated into ob-
serving the requirements of the organization.
The platform of the club is to carry on the tra-
ditions that are Tilden's, namely good sportsman-

over, and the modest acceptance of victory when
it is rightfully theirs. Many of the Lettermen take
it upon themselves to encourage student interest
in sports and to promote attendance at the games,

Eligibility for membership in the club is the
possession of a major T earned by participating
in the action on one of Tilden's noted teams. The
total membership for 1941 is in excess of seventy
athletes. The officers elected from among these
members were: Harlan Golding, member of both
track and soccer teams, president: Robert Cum-

Tilden's title hopes were blasted in the first
league game of the year when our traditional riv-
al, Lindblom, defeated the Blue Devils in what
Chicago newspapers called "the hardest fought
prep battle of the year." It was a bad break for
the team to have its toughest battle right at the
beginning of the season, but outside of our two
defeats, the other being Englewood, the season
was very successful. The team showed all the
pep and playing ability as the year before but
lacked the power to get going in time to win.
Even with such fine players as Andy fRed7
Novasad, Vic Witt, and Al Szczepaniak-all hav-
ing honorable mention for the All-City high school
football team of Chicago, and also making the
all-section team with Ierry Maratea-and a line
averaging one hundred and eighty-five pounds,
the team could not break through and get to the
ich, Beaver. Fourth Row-Harvey, Stiegel, Augustyn, Gleeson,

ba, Krueger, Rock, Outly, Durkin.
Line: Marcus, Meisel, Dejitis, Pelletier, Gritiin, Stiegel, Augus-
tyn. Backs: Cummings, Alm. Maratea, Sczpaniak.
In the game with our rival, Lindblom, Vic Witt
was seriously injured and was carried out of the
game to the hospital with a very bad head injury.
Al Szczepaniak was also inj1u'ed but went back
into the game, not only once, but twice to receive
more injuries from the heavier opponents. So
great was his show of sportsmanship and courage
that an article appeared in the city's daily news-
papers praising him. Even though Tilden lost in
the final score, they won a moral victory for their
courage. Such a victory showed in the rest of the
season, for at once the team started winning by
great scores. Of all the games played the Blue
Devils won six by shutouts. However good a team
plays, it is very seldom that it will have a perfect
season. The Blue Devil's downfall came in the
game with Englewood. The Blue Devils were in
scoring position twice but were unable to cross
the white line either time to score. The game was
an exciting punting dual between Al Szczepaniak
of the Blue Devils and an excellent kicker from
Englewood. However, Englewood scored on a
long pass for the only tally in the game.
The Blue Devils' next opponents were the men
from Harrison, a much heavier team then Tilden's.
The Tildenites, seeing what they were up against,
dug in and won a very exciting game. Abe, Levitt,
Tilden's fleet footed half back, scored on a twenty-
four yard scoot around end. Next Schumacher
connected with a pass to Uvodich who scored
after some fancy stepping and hip wagging. The
final tally for Tilden was made by our fullback,
Ierry Maratea, who plunged thru Harrison's line
and ended up in a forty-nine yard sprint to the
If Tilden could have seen the Farragut game
ahead of time it might have saved one member
of our team from much pain and distress. In the
last minutes of the game Norman Krueger inter-
cepted a pass for Tilden, but when he was tackl-
ed he couldn't get up. He had a fractured knee
cap. Even with that Tilden won the game by a
very large margin. Uvodich lead the attack with
two touchdowns and Chuck Alm, Al Szczepaniak,
and Marcus each made one touchdown apiece.
DuSable, the team that gave Tilden some un-
pleasant moments the year before, was the next
team to be pounced upon by Tilden. The scoring
was done by A1 Szczepaniak, Ierry Maratea, and
Abe Levitt. Little Abe scored twice for dear old
The personal high light of the Tilden-Kelly
game was the fact that Cow Cummings made his
first touchdown in regular league competition.
The peculiar fact about it was that "Cow" had
been promising that touchdown for a long time.
Chuck Alm, Abe Levitt, and Schumacher scored
for Tilden as the Blue Devils defeated Kelly.
Tilden is looking forward to a brilliant season
next year because fifteen men are returning.
Even though the first team is gone, such players
as Uvodich, an exceptional back: Peterson, Kov-
atch, and Haack, bruising tackles: and Tom Hard
and Whitey Mieskowski, a pair of good guards:
have returned. Coach Harvey started spring prac-
tice the second week in the new semester, thus
getting a good head start with the team.

Because Mr. Hicks gives every player a chance
to play in the game, the record for the sophomore
team is hardly ever outstanding. He carries a big
squad for the simple reason of finding the best
prospects. By giving every player a chance to
play, he thus finds the most promising.
The sophomore football team is the life blood
for the varsity because the varsity team depends
on the sophomore team to send up good material.
Without good material the varsity would not go
far in the way of Winning. Right now the varsity
is made up of sophs from the teams of last year
and the year before. One half of this year's var-
sity is made up of last year's sophs.
Unless the player is very exceptional, he can't
make the varsity with out playing one year on
the sophomore team. The sophomore team dev-
elops mediocre blockers and tacklers into good
or maybe excellent players. Last year the indoor
turnout was larger than the outdoor. There was
much good material in the indoor turnout, but
only one half of the tryouts returned in the fall.
Breaking just about even with their games last
year, the sophs showed promise of good reserve
power for the varsity. All in all, there were many
players of good quality on the team even though
Mr. Hicks won't take anyone onto the soph team
who weighs more than two hundred and eight
pounds. Among the best players on the sophs
were Clark and Schimul, two ends who could
have been moved up to the varsity, but were kept
on the sophs for more experience: Ray and Car-
mon, two centers who will hold down the second
string position on the varsity this year: Mike
Bracken and Ioe Coctiak, two exceptionally fine
back: and many others who showed great pro-
mise. The hardest task for a new player to do, is
memorize all their various plays. This is where
the soph team comes in. It helps the players in
memorizing plays and in making better players
and sports out of them. This coming season Mr.
Hicks plans to have the sophomore team play
ten. games with the various other sophomore
teams from other schools.
Reaching their peak in the Stagg Tournament
by placing third out of forty city teams, the Tilden
heavyweights struggled through the season carry-
ing a hard luck burden by losing three fifths of
the team by mid-year graduation.
Winning three and dropping five hotly contest-
ed league battles, the team caused the thrilling
Stagg Tournament to stand out in the '40-'41 sea-
son. With the aid of the Central section champion
lightweight squad, the Tech basketeers opened
their tournament competition with the odds
against them, even in their first game with Crane.
but pulled the game out of the fire to win 23-17.
Easily dropping Fenger from competition 34 to 3l,
Tilden marched through Marshall, the favorite of
the tournament, 57 to 52 in one of the wildest ex-
hibitions of shooting, passing, and dribbling ever
witnessed. Though losing at the half, 23 to 33,
the inspired Tech five came back and shameless-
ly outscored the favorites in the second half to
insure them a place in the playoffs. The only ob-
stacle to the first place trophy proved to be Tuley.
who outscrapped the heavies to come out on top
3 to 31 and gain the finals. In the consolation Til-
den pitted their strength against Austin and
proudly took home third place individual trophies
to the score of 34 to 30 in an overtime game.
The beginning of the league season saw Tilden
trounce Kelly 39 to 20 and Farragut 46 to 37 but
lose to the Stagg Tournament champs, DuSable
40 to 28 and the city champions, Manley 41 to 26.
From then on the loss of Nick Maracich, Henry
Washington, and Gene Kosovski proved a heavy
loss to the Tech heavyweights, but with "Fire
Truck" Verchelde, Chester Kanusis, Milty Haney,
"Red" Powers, Richard Butler, Bill Przewoznik,
"Flash" Katnick, and Bill Munno taking over, the
heavies nosed out Lindblom 25 to 21 while losing
close battles to Gage Park 24 to 20, Harrison 38 to
26, and Phillips 32 to 22 without their stars.
Though their first year on the team Verchelde,
Butler, and Powers turned in outstanding per-
formances. "Flash" Katnick, leading scorer of the
team after February, was closely followed by Bill
Munno and Chester Kanusis in points. Haney's
defensive work deserves praise along with Butler,
Przewoznik, and Petchul. Coach Apking, guiding
star of the Tech quintets, is faced with the diff-
icult problem next year of building a team around
the sole returning letterman, Bill Munno.

The season of 1941 saw the junior basketball
team again place third in the city. Having been
unbeaten in all the regularly scheduled games.
the lights were overcome in the closing minutes
of the semi-final game to lose 37 to 35.
ln the pre-season games, the junior quintette
showed its superiority over its opponents. Only
one game was lost and this to Marshall, the pre-
sent champions, by a score of 37 to 34. The champ-
ions were forced to come from behind to Win.
After the Stagg Field elimination tournament
in which the two teams combined captured third
place, the regular season was opened against
Kelly who was downed 24 to 16. The team com-
posed of Burke, Loshbough, Caruso, Wolinetz, and
Rocknick continued to wage the fight against
Farragut, Manley, and DuSab1e defeating them
all. Against Manley, Tilden compiled one of the
highest scores of the season in Chcago High
School competition, defeating them 60 to 23. Feb-
ruary graduation lost Caruso, Wolinetz, and Rock-
nick to the team. Perhaps this was the reason for
daily newspapers to predict a dismal season. The
lineup against Phillips saw Bohlin, Smaciarz, and
Laschober in place of the veteran trio. However,
the Techmen were victorious as previously. Win-
ning the remaining games against Harrison, Lind-
blom, and Gage Park placed the junior guintette
in the title playoffs. Tech rooters were given a
scare in the game with Gage Park when erratic

play on the part of the Techmen kept them from
coming out on top until the last quarter. After
a bruising game with Roosevelt High of Indiana.
the victrious Tilden team engaged Englewood in
the first game for the city title. With the help of
the reserves who played a greater part of the
game, Tilden blasted Englewood's hopes for a
city crown with a score of 33 to 24. The following
game against Parker nearly proved to be the
Waterloo for the Gold and Blue, When the gun
ended the game, the two teams were tied with
35 points each and the overtime period would
have ended with another tie if it had not been for
lack Loshbough's final minute basket which put
Tilden on top 39 to 37.
Here the string of victories ended. The follow-
ing game with Waller was lost after a furious
battle 37 to 35. The Techmen were able to hold
a short margin until the final minutes when Waller
scored two baskets and maintained a two point
advantage to the end.
Although the city title wasn't won, Tilden had
a galaxy of stars. Burke's sensational playing
placed him on the all city team. Rocknick and
Loshbough earned berths on the all-section team.
From this team only Burke and Smaciarz will be
the veterans returning next year. Filling the place
of the gaduates will be three substitutes, Vinci,
Perkovich, and Markus who helped to make this
team one of the best in Tilden's history.

With only four returning Veterans, the outlook
for the Tilden's Soccer Team's 1940 season was
dismal. But with intensive practice and hard work,
under the guidance of Coach Blackshaw, several
newcomers were proven capable of completing
the sextet. Through several pre-season encount-
ers, the newcomers gained the experience neces-
sary for actual league competition and improved
sufficiently to become a serious threat to the city
The Tech Ironheads started the league season
handily, and took the first two games by over-
whelming margins. Amundsen, downed by a
score of 3 to O, and Von Steuben, crushed by a
score of 5 to 0, were the first victims. In the third
game of league competition, Kelly, Ti1den's soccer
jinx of long standing, emerged victorious l to 0.
Kelly's lone goal came on a penalty shot as in
1939. This defeat, instead of humbling the tech-
men, gave them a new determination, and they
swept through the next three games undefeated.
Included in this series were victories over Hyde
Park and Lane, with scores of 3 to 1 and 2 to 0 res-
pectively, and a stalemate with Manley.
Crane edged out Tilden 2 to 0, and the three
way tie for first place between Tilden, Crane, and
Kelly was broken. The loss of this crucial contest
put the Tilden Soccer Team out of the running for
the title. The end of the season came with l to 0
victory over Schurz. In league play the soccer
team amassed a record of 6 wins, two losses, and
one tie, with Tilden scoring 14 goals to their op-
Co-captain Ed Tumas and Harlan Golding.
along with Ptichad Fousek and Quentin Goldberg,
all veterans of the 1939 soccer team, played as
regulars throughout the 1940 season. These four
players were the backbone of the soccer team.
Honors were heaped on Richard Fousek when he
was picked by the city referees as the outstand-
ing back of the season's play. Other players who
performed well during the season were Ted Du-
benic, goalie: Chas. Emerson, half back: Iames
Kolar, Pete Breskovich, Ed Wolski, I. Pauga, and
Walte Strauss, all of whom were forwards. A
great help to the team were the veterans Walter

Holding true to the Tech tradition for City
Wrestling Championships, the grapplers swept
through a tough schedule to bring Tilden another

on through the remaining bouts, finally winning
the meet twenty-four to twelve.
Because of a misunderstanding beteween the
City League and the State High School Associa-
tion Tilden could not enter a team in the Illinois
State High School Meet.
However, the Techmen did enter the City In-
dividual Tournament, and came out with five in-
dividual championships. The boys who won these
championships were Ira Smith, lack Blackley,
Bob Cummings, Vic Mieskowsky, and Captain

TILDEN BOWLING CLUB
Year by year the fascinating sport of bowling
is growing more popular with high school stu-
dents of the United States. Bowling, as a high
school sport, was introduced in 1933 by Milton
Haymer to the freshmen students at the Sexton
Branch of Tilden. In 1936, under the supervision
of Mr. Raymer, a city wide organization was form-
ed, called the Chicago High School Bowling Club.
Its popularity has been proved by the ninety
leagues now participating and its fame has spread
through-out the country. As a result, Tilden has
gained national prominence as the birthplace of
high school bowling.
With its five leagues of forty boys each, we
have one of the largest bowling clubs in the
country. From these five leagues ten teams com-
peted in the sectional playoffs, these teams be-
ing th efirst and second place winners of each
league. The teams to enter from Tilden were:
Red Devils and Iitterbugs of Hyde Park League
Yehudies and Dead Ends of Stevenson's Lefty
Anythings and Ramblers of Stevenson's Har-
Five Nuts and Five Aces of Bruck's League

sky. Chrzanowski. Demian, Guard, Cairns, Filpovich.

In the playoffs the Yehudies of Lefty's Steven-
son league made the best showing. They went as
far as the semi-finals, losing a tough match to the
West End Recreation league champs.
The Iitterbugs of Hyde Park League were also
in the running, losing their fourth sectional match
to one of the Windy City teams. Bruno Rataj was
captain of the Iitterbugs.
At the end of the season all the bowlers were
looking forward to represent Tilden in the Chic-
ago High School Bowling Congress. From the 250
boys at Tilden the six boys that were chosen to
bowl in the tournament Were: Captain Miller,
Paesel, Nevens, Wojdyla. Guard, and Long-the
top bowlers in all of our five leagues.
In the tournament, Paesel did the best of all
the Tilden boys with his 521 series. The team
series was 2447, with which they took ninth place
out of the thirty-four teams that bowled.
During the past season the four boys at Tilden
who made themselves known through-out all the
bowling leagues were those who did all the work
in keeping the teams, records, and lineups in or-
der. These four secretaries who did such wonder-
ful work during the season are: Howard Cairns,
secretary of Stevenson's Lefty League: Tom Gard-
eakos of Bruck's league: Norbery Long of Steven-
son's Harer's league and Bruno Rataj, secretary
of the Hyde Park Recreation league.
In addition to their work in school these boys
attend a secretarial meeting twice a month in or-
der to better their knowledge on the functioning
of a bowling league. When at these meetings,
these boys took part in the activities of running
affairs for the city bowling club. Bruno Rataj, a
Tildenite, was appointed chairman of the Christ-
mas tournament, while Tom Gadeakos, was ap-
pointed on the entertainment committee. At the
end of this season Howard Cairns was elected
treasurer for this council. He will go into office
Wilbert Miller, one of Tilden's finest bowlers,
was chosen as the model high school bowler for
the United States. As such, his picture was placed
on the front cover of the American High School
Bowling Congress pamphlet which was distribut-
ed to all schools and proprieters through-out the
country. At the end of this season Miller had one
of the highest averages in the city, a 187 in the
Milo-Wiesner league and a 182 in the Brucks
league. In the regular season he bowled many
games over 200 and one of these was 266 with
which he took third place in the City Ten Pin
Toppers. He also took another third place with his
high series of 669, for which outstanding bowling
he received two beautiful medals. Being only a
SA, he will be back next semester.

"It's my honor. Fore!" And another golf season
opens with the swish of a club. Losing by a score
of three cmd a half to eight and a half, the pill
swatters' chance for championship was foiled
by Lindblom. This, however, was the only de-
feat for the Tildenites. With two regulars re-
turning, the team had high hopes for winning
the central championship, but nothing like that
The team's captain and number one man this
year was Tom Davis, the number two man was
Tom Milasky, who won the Iackson Park golf
form contest, the number three man was Iim Stal-
zer, and Earl Hamilton was number four.

Earl Hamilton, but Tom Milasky and Captain Tom
Davis defeated Mr. Wood and Mr. Weintraub,
thus making the tournament a draw. It is still ar-
gued as to which is the better.
Even though the team did not win the central
crown this year, its hopes are still quite high be-
cause Milasky and Davis and several other good
prospects are returning. So watch out, Lindblom,
"It is quality and not quantity that counts."
The adage was perfectly illustrated in the swim-
ming team of 1941. No other team in the school
suffered such a large loss in membership and yet
finished with a perfect season. In retaining the
central crown, the Tech Seals defeated all central
section opposition and closed the season with a
loss. Englewood, Farragut, Lindblom, Kelly, and
Gage Park were met twice and defeated each
time. In a pre-season encounter with Fenger the
senior squad was nosed out by a close score of
36 to 30. Basing the future on this uncommendable
outcome, the team expected no laurels as champs
in any league. But in the first regular meet with
Englewood, the two squads overpowered their
opponents with scores of 35 to 22 and 43 to 18.
They continued to do so against all opposition un-
til they finally emerged with the central title rest-
ing securely in their possession.
Tilden has held the south-section title for more
than a decade. In 1940, the juniors relinquished
their share of it to Bowen. In their attempt to re-
gain it from Bowen this year, they had been un-
successful. Ca1umet's strong senior team, by their
right of championship met Tilden fo the senior

crown. Although of the seven individual events
four were captured by the Techmen, Tilden lost
the meet. Calumet scored in every event. These
points coupled with those won by the relay teams
gave Calumet a final standing of 43 to 23. Cap-
tain Iimmy Smith took first in the 40 yd. free-style
events. Bavirsha captured the 100 yd. breast
stroke and Sweetland won handily from Hipscher
in the 100 yd. free-style. Monfort placed third in
the 100 yd. back-stroke. Yersavich did likewise
in the 200 yd. free-style.
After these disheartening bids for the southern
title, the mermen entered the spring city meet.
As the entrants were few, the points scored were
small. Capt. Smith placed a close second in the
200 yd. free-style. The medley-relay team also
won a similar place with a fine time of 1:26.
From an inefficient group of juniors Coach
Hartman has brought up a potential squad of
swimmers. Having spent a season in developing,
the team will prove to be a strong contender for
the sectional and city titles the coming season.
Mr. Hartman deserves an immeasurable amount
of credit for producing such a fine team.

Detemined to make up for the Outdoor Champ-
ionship that they lost by a couple of points last
year, the senior track team went out and won the
1941 City Indoor Track Championship, thus re-
taining the title of "Indoor Champs" for the sec-
ond consecutive year. The team was so powerful
and well balanced that it had a man who placed
in every event, except the broad jump, and shot
put. Sullivan High's second place of 18 points was
not enough to challenge our 32 and one half
Montgomery starred on the high and low
hurdles and received ten points, Prince added to
the jackpot with a first in the 880 yard run or five
points more, and the relay team fGay, Prince Wol-
ski, Grochowalskil brought in another first place.
Then Grochowalski took third in the 440 yard
dash, Gay took fifth in the S0 yard dash, in pole
vault Golding tied for third, Taylor tied for third
in high jump, and Seskowski took second in the
mile run. That is how the team won the champion-
Before the City meet the team had several dual
meets. Tilden met Calumet and won 57 to 31. Du
Sable fell by a 60 to 28 score, and then Lindblom
was defeated in a contest with no field events.
Finally, Englewood was trounced 47 to 32.
The outdoor track season opened against Mt.
Carmel, who was beaten 53 and a half-to13 and
a half. Calumet met their second defeat at the
hands of Tilden. In the Wilson relays, sponsored
by the Chicago Teacher's College, Tilden took
second, beaten by Schurz who claimed first by a
very small margin. Roosevelt in Gary, Indiana,
then beat the Tilden cinder burners 60-45, and the
last meet, a triangular affair, was won by Engle-
wood with Tilden second and Lindblom third. The
scores were 37-32-28.

year brought to Tilden a senior relay champion-
ship in almost record time.The victorious senior
relay team consists of Capt. Charles Schmudde,
Capt. Frank Gregory, Ralph Lenhardt, and
The skating team took second in the city meet
with Lane Tech. Our boys tried hard and fought
to the end but were defeated by a faster team and
R. Lenhardt placed third in the half mile, C.
Schmudde a fourth in the four hundred and forty
yard dash, and F. Gregory a third in the one mile
race. In the preliminaries Tilden was on top but
in the finals our luck changed and we lost the city
championship by three points.
In Tri-State meet we proved to be third among
the leading teams of Illinois, Iowa, and Wiscon-
sin. We came through with flying colors in the
Tilden Skating Meet, earning two hundred and
twenty points out of a possible three hundred.
The two speedsters of the team who were able
to attend the National Races are Ralph Lenhardt
and Frank Gregory. They held their own among
the leadng skaters of the United States, and to
do this, speed, clear thinking, excellent muscle co-
ordination, and a certain amount of good luck are
required. Other outstanding graduating members
of the team are Frank Barili, Iames Cagwin, Ver-
non Davis, Iulius Demian, and Leonard Klarich.

With swinging bats and bouncing balls, mar-
velous plays on dry or wet diamonds, and amid
lusty cheers from sideline rooters, the Tilden base-
ball squad wound up another enjoyable and
successful season. Under the splendid leadership
of Coach Durkin the Tech diamondeers earned
themselves the fourth place rank of the Chicago
High School Baseball League. Tildens' sluggers
were victorious in 9 of their 14 league squabbles:
the 5 other games were dropped to Farragut.
Harrison Tech, and Lindblom, the latter two tak-
ing 2 games apiece.
Fielding honors for this past season fall into
no individual's hands. Captain Loria was hot on
second base, "Chile" Rocke boiling behind the
home plate, and Augustyn steaming away with
headlong dives out in right field. With Clasby
kicking up dust as a short stop and Haney hold-
ing down the keystone sack, just like an expert,
smooth working Fleischer at third base had little
worry about an opposing team member coming
around to him on an infield hit.
The leader of the pitching department is Frank
Outley, winner of 4 ball games. Against Phillips,
in the second game of the season, Outley went
6 full innings Without yielding a hit and, in his
last appearence, Outley held Farragut to 3 hits
in 7 innings.
Consequently, this Tilden vs. Farragut game
was the most important scrap of the season.
When the two schools met, Farragut was leading
the league and hitting a terrific stride when the
battle ended, Farragut was defeated and forced
from the first place position to a tie with Harrison
Tech. When the last inning had rolled around,
Farragut was leading, having obtained 6 runs on
Outley's 3 hits and a number of chance Tilden
errors. With 2 runs home, 2 outs, and 2 men on
base, big Bill Augustyn blasted out his 4th home-
run of the season, bringing the final score, Tilden
7, Farragut 6. We thank you, Augie.
Doyle, another Tech hurdler, is also Well de-
serving of special mention. This old faithful, swift,
swerling southpaw captured 3 victories for him-
self, 2 while doing relief roles. That little big-
mouthed catcher, Rocke, two infielders, Clasby
and Haney, along with Tilden's right fielder,
Augustyn, fomed a sound quartet which always
could be counted on in the pinch.

CHESS 8. CHECKER CLUBS
Under the double leadership of Mr. Collins and
Mr. Maivald the chess club met and played every
afternoon from Ianuary through to April in room
140. The chess club is composed of boys who play
chess and those who wish to learn by playing one
another under the instruction of a sponsor.
Iust before the annual spring tournament every-
one plays in a double round robin, to determine
his rating. Norbert Boinski won the round robin
this year, thus automatically becoming captain
of the chess team. The rest of the team is made up
of the next four runnners-up, who with the cap-
tain, play two matches with each of the teams
from the schools in the south section, that partici-
pate in this sport. The winner of the south section
then plays for the city championship with the win-
ner of the north section. Of the thirty games the
chess club played, the six members of the team
won fourteen and tied two games. Being compos-
ed of three seniors and the rest under graduates.
the team is looking for some more good prospects.
Minor letters are awarded to the members of the
team and managers unless a champinoship is
won, in which case, major letters and shields are
awarded, and in addition the captain and his

"These are trying times at Tilden. We must pro-

That was the close of President Zack Bosh-
bough's historical address to a united group of
Tildenites in May, 1941, brought on by the ruth-
less aggression of Lindblom and their startling
desires towards Tilden, expressed in their leader's
book "My Cramp."
There was opposition to this move but it was
over shadowed by the joy expressed by the maj-
ority as the thought of a battle with Lindblom -
a battle to avenge the Blue Devils' defeat by the
relentless Lindblom Laddies.
Among the power acquired were the right to

nical high school fighting our battle.
The serious problem the President has had to
face is that of maintaining the Tildenites' morale.
Many suggestions have been offered but the one
unanimously accepted was offered by Council
member LeRoy C. Zintak. It provided for girls to
be introduced into the everyday life at Tilden.
This bill easily passed the Student and Senior
Councils by a two-thirds majority which elimi-
nated any possibility of a presidential veto. It was
decided that this organization should be known
as the Girl Reserves.
One of the most popular, although the newest organization at Til-
den, is the unit of Girl Reserves. Under the Direction of Mrs, Flossie
Roughwoman the Reserves manage and run Tilden's elevators, act as
usherettes during assemblies, and at lunch time some assume the tasks
of a waitress while others entertain the Techmen as they dine.
Requirements for membership in the Reserves are that the girl be
between sixteen and eighteen years of age, beautiful, neat, very beau-
tiful, glamorous, and extremely beautiful. Oomph is not a necessity for
X membership but is essential for officers. The main object of the Re-
serves is to keep the student's mind from his studies which is not 'too
difficult a task because they never kept their minds on their studies
anyway. As it is expressed by one Tildenite, "lt's better to have goils
keepin' our minds off our studies instead of nuttin' a'tal1!"
Officers of the organization at the present time are: Lotta Upsen-
downs, Captain of the elevator girls: Frieda Seatyou, Majorette of the
Usherettesg Iota Servue, head waitress: and Ima Shapleyting, Queen
of the Glammer Girl Entertainers. These officers have permanent posts
and the only way they can be impeached is through the appearance
of crows-feet or any gray strands of hair.
Here's to the Girl Reserves, for the boosting of Tilden's morale, for
the beautifying of our lunchroom, and the increasing of student inter-
est -in girls!
