MUSIC SPORTS THE LITTLE GRAFTSMAN LAURA M. WRIGHT Assistant Principal 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. W :Qi .jeu 'W j FREDERICK E. PRICE Principal 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 Assistant Principal 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- Circle T's-Double-Single 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. ADMINISTRATIVE , J ,Hs 9' 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 Smyth. 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 Mr. Strassman. 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 . Hx. ' , A ' - v -1 p A 'w V ,'r w r 'Y r ik l'E Adema i ,--W... -w, - V' w 1. . A I ' A. I. 1 '1 if .4 v 4 w 1 , I Ali ' 1.

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!"

They have the responsibility of performing many duties vital to the functioning of the class 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- ers. 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 years.

Only seniors who have given a considerable amount of service to the school and who are high in scholastic standing are considered as prob- able members. The seniors who are automatically members of the Senior Council are the chapter heads of the senior divisions, the presidents of the 4B and 4A classes, the president of the Student Council, the president of the Civic Industrial Club, the editor- in-chief and the business manager of the Tilden Tech Times, the chiefs of the Office Guards, Hall Guards, Fire Guards, Military Police, and Attend- ence Room Guards and representatives from the Safety Council and First Aid. The Senior Council holds its meetngs every Tuesday morning, before school, to discuss its regular business and other problems that come up in the course of the week. lack Loshbough is the president of the Senior Council, Ioe Solarski is vice-president, and Nick Melas is secretary- treasurer. Rio, Chester Nelson, Curtis Galinski, Ralph Bindl, Harlan Gold- ing, Thomas Valvoda, Vincent Mlcuch, Wm. Erickson, Iames Reigel. Fourth Row- Ioseph Novicki.

The Constitution of the Senior Council states that the Council must do one major service to- wards the advancement of the school every year. Its major service for this year is to undertake the management of the Hall Guards of the school. The Council appointed two supervisors for every period and the supervisors in turn appointed Guard Marshalls for every period. The Super- visor-in-Chief is Ioe Novicki. 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. SENIOR ELECTION "AW, com'on loe, put your Iohn Hancock on my petition!" 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- ural Assembly. bough. Center picture, Election Commissioners: First Row- Given, Olson, Clancy, Baltikus, Mlcuch, Kielp.

In Washington the Senate is still wrangling over House Resolution 1492 introduced by Robert Powers. The bill demands the abolition of the Corrupt Industrial Committee, better known as the C.I.C., which has imposed insidious taxes for years.

Iudge Guard presides over the case which will be settled in several years. Earl Wilson's book, "My Slums, My Slums" was acclaimed the best seller of the year today at a joint meeting of the Petrich and Botica Revolution- ary Committees. As a reward for his achievement Wilson was given the Louis Torres Trophy for the outstanding accomplishment of 1957.

Now I would like to give a bit of time to a worthy cause ...... the advertising of the charity :lance being given at the Iwanski Ballroom tonight. The dance is for the benefit of Truman Wright who is now confined to the Manteno State Hospital with a severe case of petitionitis which was brought about by hard feelings after the last presidential election. It has been rumored that he is now passing out a petition among the inmates for softer beds at the hospital. George Spear, head of the institution, confirmed the rumors. Erickson, the designer of the beds, said, "l can't under- stand why they are complaining. The beds are soft as they can be. They must be nuts!" The Hook and Rookumore Mattress Company, manufactur- ers of the mattresses, declined to make a state- ment. Albin Stravinskas, a member of the state senate, entered an essay into the senate this morning that demanded an investigation of the matter. It took third place in the competition. As a consola- tion prize he was given the opportunity to air his composition over the XBC Network, owned and operated by the Kriegs U-Wana Biscuit Company. It was announced today, by Sheriff Iohn Stachura, that three of the inmates who escaped Manteno last week were captured near O'Lough- lin's Road House. Those taken into custody today were Napoleon Lefkovitz, Will Kunst, and Henry Paul Hejmanowski. That's all for tonight everybody, so we thank Oh, Oh! just a minute folks.,......here is a last minute bulletin from Chicago. Three persons were injured critically tonight, when an explosion occurred at the Tilden.

SENIOR WILL 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 peace and quiet. Also a personal office guard who can be within call, handle a hundred trivial matters, and run on an errand, all at the same time. Miss Smyth, we leave you with all the problems :-- that were Miss Wright's, To Mr. Shine, the suave social soliciter, we bequeath an "icky bunch of jivers that can dish it off the elbow and keep the platter so hot the alligators can get in the mood and stay in the groove. Are ya' hep to that step? Well. dig it!" To Miss Mullen, a contata allegro diminuendo that will bring forth bravado in unrestrained fortissimo ...... Oh heck! We mean she'll get a big hand for a couple of those numbers the choral club sings. To Mrs. Gentleman, history classes with an A group that doesn't act like a C group while the B group shouldn't study like a C group because then she thinks they're the A group. Simple as ABC, isn't it? To Miss Lawler, another trip so that she can fill that last five minutes with more tales of her travels instead of letting ' 1' her classes get in some history.

To the Iuniors goes the task of becoming violently insane, so that they may uphold the traditions of the senior class. To the Sophomores, the job of renting all the steam-heated lockers, directing freshmen to 440, and selling their elevator passes for next to nothing. To the Freshmen, the right to hobnob with the intelligensia of Tilden and the honor of using the gymnasia and the natatorium.

Washout A A SENIGB IS by I oe Tilden "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. INTEBVIEWED "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 came around?" 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 subjects?" 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 passes." ,n.r',,-I ' lg ,rv-. ,,. ty WL ll' ff' X - 1 JV L' -was JJ? .4 ' gg if Cl WW' I ffm 'Wig' -2 ttaa '. a-up-y N 9 .

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. MRS.

JUNIOR INTERVIEW With his pencil poised, Ioe Tilden cautiously approached a Tildenite busily doing homework of some sort. Ioe noted that the lad paused in his work quite frequently to brush off imaginary part- icles of dust from his letter. Obviously it was new. Yes, this was the youth he was seeking- a typ- ical Iunior. "Say," said Ioe as the Iunior paused a minute, "How about telling me your viewpoints. It's for the Craftsman." "Well, l've got a lot to learn and these teachers seem to know it. Do they pile on the work! I've got to get it all done to keep on the team, too. So if you'll excuse I'll get back to my physics." Taking the hint, Ioe Tilden tip toed silently away. L 'Lu aw L MR. TIMME'S SOPH DIVISION First Row! Hughes, Stevenson, Giampaolo, Mr. Timme, Olson, Hozian, Kerr.

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 Ioe. "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 . .. - L time I just go to the movies or dream about that organization unknown to most of us sophs - the Honor Club. 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 graciously. 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- omore. FRESHMAN INTERVIEW "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?"

"I don't getcha, what d'ya mean-social life?" spattered the Freshie. Patiently Ioe Tilden simplified it, "Oh going to dances and parties." "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! Where ya' goin'?" Paying no heed at all, Ioe Tilden ambled off muttering to himself "Was I like that? Omigosh!! No, No, I couldn't have been. Tsk, Tsk." STUDENT COUNCIL i.. .4-..

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 Walter Numan, secretary.

Then in turn the marshalls choose the guards from their records of service to the organization. The officers and marshalls have Worked out a newer and more efficient system that Will be put into effect next year. As a reward for their endeavors council men may receive Tilden's civic award, the Civic Let- ter. Taken into consideration, when a boy applies for this award, are the number of hours he has earned through his service, scholarship, and con- duct. At present, membership in the Student Coun- cil is restricted to third and fourth year students each of Whom mus be recommended by his divis- ion room teacher. It is hoped that the organization will be improved to such an extent that sopho- mores may be permitted to join. If the concil's pre- sent venture proves successful they will be given more responsibility and authority in student aff- airs, and without a doubt they have been success- ful thus far. .l 4-..

LIBRARY GUARDS 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- ians. OFFICE GUARDS 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 information. Their hard work doesn't go unrewarded how- ever. After three semesters' service they are pre- sented with a Civic letter with a bar for each ex- tra semester. Office Guards may also use their semester of sevice to count for an Honor Club letter.

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 HALL GUARD MARSHALS and SUPERVISORS First Rowe Edward Sponder, George Kollaritsch, Charles Preston, Harlan Golding Supervisor, Ioseph Novicki, Nick Melas, Robert Schafer, Edward Wall, Albert Krasovec.

Then there's al- ways the fellow who forgets his books and wants to get into his locker during the period, or the freshie inquiring into the direction of the elevator. It's a mean task but, of course, there's always the possibility of becoming a guard marshall, whose duties are to check attendence and effic- iency of the boys and then make a report to the teacher in charge. This past year the guard system, under the sponsorship of the Senior Council, has functioned very well the cleaner halls, the better order dur- ing passing, and the reduction of "wanderers" all show the boys have put forth their best efforts. They can certainly wear their service letters, got- ten through this service, with pride. ober, Emil Kramer, Ernest Heidinger.

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 CIRCUS 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 of fun. 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 quiet reigns. .,., -.

ADJUSTMENT OFFICE 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. PLACEMENT GUARDS 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 Letter. l l HONOR CLUB First Row- Raczkowski, Strauf, Monfort, Demian, Miss Lawler, Iohnson, Hesse, Hellmer, Zackovitch.

And why notffor to be able to say, "I'm a member of the National Honor Society," is certainly something to boast about. 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. I l Q. ll" SERVICE CLUB First How Mallary, Dudek, Lathrop, Hodson, Stetanowski, Stretch, Kunz, Lusk.

SERVICE CLUB 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. First How - Bultena, Humpt, Golman, Lathrop, Hodson, Mrs. Lutz, Steianowski, Stretch, Devaney.

Victor Petchul, Harry Laschober and Sam Shafton 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." Offices for this year are Phil Hodson, president: Leoand Stefanowski, vice president: Edwin Str- eich, secretary: Robert Lathrup, corresponding secretary. 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 FIRST AID First Row-- O'Brien, Arnold, Murray, Dr. Humiston, McEwan. Boden, Spratt.

Dr. Humiston teaches these boys how to administer first aid be- foe he lets them serve in the organization Under the leadership of Robert Schafer the Iunior Red Cross is doing splendid work for Til- den. This department as well as the First Aid Sta- tion is under the supervision of the Safety Council. Meetings are held each month downtown to which each school sends two representatives to participate in the discussions, and plan the work of the year.

Q 2 SH.-1 vi t 23152 .Z HOBBY SHCDW 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 fascinating hobby. 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 extinct. Then there was the large collection of match book covers, stamps, coins, and different oddit- ies along with many examples of the ladies' skill and Crocheting. was held during and presentation in embroidery work, weaving, 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. PARENT-TEACHER ASSOCIATION "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.

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 Art Institute. 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 lettering. 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 - - - ?

October 24, 1939-Matthew Woll METAL WORK FORGE SHOP 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. FOUNDRY 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. - 41 ,l V f uafclt gave .

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. METAL SHOPS.

Lower Right: Mr. Fleming giving instruction in welding. MACHINE SHOP 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- vision. 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. WOCDDWCDRKING 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.

Center: Mr. Van Artsen watches the school paper being pri ated. Left: The boys are trying to find the trouble in Mr. Burgchardt's aircraft engines. AUTO SHOP 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. "From a Gawky Gus to a Mechanized Mike" expresses the transformation when a fellow takes our Auto Shop course. PRINT SHOP 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 own shop. 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. AIRCRAFT SHOPS 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 Defense School. Equally important to the design and building of the airplane itself is the designing and main- tainence of the power plant, which is in Aircraft Engines. During the first semester the theory of the engine is taught: in the second practical Work on the assembling and adjusting of the engine is done. ELECTRIC SHOP 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- stems. 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. RADIO SHOP 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 world. I Left: New developmenwbs in photography under Mr. Moore.

This is one of the most frequent and expressive ejacula- tions one hears on passing the photography dark- room. Perhaps it is some student who is compelled to hustle in order to complete his required work along with the photographing and finishing of all the "Times" pictures. Tilden is the only high school in Chicago which has a photography shop: this gives our fellows, who are interested in the subject, a better oppor- tunity to acquaint themselves with the procedures and basic fundamentals of photography by practical experience. Besides having to mix their own chemicals from formulas furnished by Mr. Ferdinand Moore, the instructor, building small workable cameras, and developing pictures by scientific experiment, they also learn the tricks of touching up and tinting prints and the art of taking trick pictures at differ- ent angles. Tilden can point with pride to the professional like work turned out by the student photographers. SOCIAL SCIENCE Our ideal, our objective is still peacefpeace at home and peace abroad. Nevertheless, We stand ready not only to spend millions for defense but to give our service and even our lives for the maintenance ot our American liberties. Our security is not a matter of Weapons alone. The arm that wields them must be strong, the eye that guides them clear, the will that directs them indomitable. These are the characteristics of a tree people, a people de- voted to the institutions they themselves have built,apeople Willing to defend a Way ot lite that is precious to them all, a people who put their faith in God.

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 school and the surrounding community. ACHIEVEMENT DINNER 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- tion. 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 vain. Left: Stravinskas delivers prize winning essay. Right: Arny Olsen congratulates Fuhs.

SPECIAL HONORS 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. SCIENCE In recent times, modern science has developed to give mankind, for the first time in the history oi the human race, a Way of securing a more abundant lite which does not sim- ply consist in taking away irom some one else.

Students of biology were invited to join, and the response proved that such a club was Wel- come at Tilden, Plans were rushed, a constitution and bylaws were drawn, meetings were schedul- and the honor of being first president went to lack Ashton. 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 Amphitheatre. 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. HONOR CLUB 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. CHEM CLUB 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 seventy members. Demonstrations and talks on current science topics given at each meeting are made by the program committee with the aid of Mr. Goodrich. 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- mous chemists such as Sir Humphrey Davy, Urey, Moirso, and Courtis, also cn cosmic rays and me- teors. Officers of the Chem Club for this past year were Zennon Raczkowski, president, sometimes referred as the mad chemist: Don Zacone, vice- president: and William Husczis, secretary and teasurer. It is the hope of Mr. Goodrich that some of these boys will someday win the famed Nobel Prize.

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 estimating quantities. 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. MATHEMATICS SKIT "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 astronomer. 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- ways.

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. FRENCH CLUB 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 Club. Miss Seitz, the head of the language department is sponsor of the club. 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. A quoi bon entendre A quoi bon entendre Les oiseaux des bois?

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 it represents. 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. ,F HE 5 1?.,,-If -..MC'ZsCZt...m,-.-- , N' X Ns CRAFTSMAN EDITORIAL and ART STAFF First How- Charles DiCiro, Gordon Wood, Gilbert Pajauskas, Victor Petchul, Mrs. Aldrich, Mr. Gleason, Wm.

They're completely surrounded, these scriblin' 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 succeeded. 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. RADIO 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 WMAQ for the sake of circus publicity. Tilden was represented on a musical program when Donald McCall sang a solo May llth on station WCFL. 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 radio entertainment. R. O. T. C. THE PLEDGE TO THE FLAG I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG OF THE UNITED STATES OP AMERICA, AND TO THE REPUBLIC FOR WHICH IT STANDS, ONE NATION, INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY AND IUSTICE FOR ALL. "We, the Americas, will decide for ourselves Whether, cmd when, and where our American interests are attacked or our security threatened. We are placing our armed forces in strategic military positions. We will not hesitate to use our armed forces to repel attack. We reassert our abiding faith in the vitality of our con- stitutional republic as a perpetual home of freedom, of toler- ance, and of devotion to the Word of God." Franklin Delano Roosevelt-May 27, 1941 2 1 3 3 " i Q A ... H. Wa Fx 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- ed officers. 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- toon. 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 entire company. RIFLE TEAM 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 be added.

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 escape. the prompt clearing of the building during a fire drill in its The organization also reports any conditions hindering regular report made out to our principal, Mr. Frederick E. Price. PICKED PLATOON 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. USHERS 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 letter. .. A ,Tx , ..... ... N. N. M1 y, Xu .Xi N . X L L 3. . ,E o . xl I K X I I OFFICERS 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- mission!! 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. NON-COMMISSIONED OFFICERS 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- struction. 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- ed and recommended by their company commander may also attend. Cadet Master Sergeant Ioseph F. Grollinger heads the "non- coms" this semester as Regimental Sergeant Major and high- est ranking non-commissioned officer in the regiment. Heading the "non-coms" in their individual battalions are Cdt. Staff Ser- geant Frank L. Whitmer, First Battalion Sergeant Major, and Cdt. Sergeant Robert L. Dasper, Second Battalion Sergeant Maior. MILITARY POLICE 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 Police. 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.

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 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. "The Nation's Schools"-Chester F. Miller ar BAND Flute: Bowman, Langosch, Nisely, Fimentstark. E Flat Clarinet: Horan, Kramer.

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. 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 past years. '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 tlike "Cap" Stubel. Best of luck to him: he's sure to succeed. Violins: Iacob Costel. Bernard DeMonte, Mariano Her- nandez. Leo Kazlauskas, Stanley Kesilis, E.

ORCHESTRA 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 Isaac. 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. 1 . VL NX- N Ci M V fx fr ,f - A.. rl ' - AA.

Fitzgibbons Joe Ferreri Secretary Bernard Blake G. Christopulos Treasurer Spurgeon McC1ay CHORAL CLUB 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 thirty-five members. 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. ffi .,, "fi" 'Iv J . 1 iff? . 12 Q - L QQ , f iyiifx '4-f" f 1 ', , -l'Z" ,.'l jv' Q-52 4 ., DW vw ,W e Q.

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- ship in actual athletic competition, hard fighting nich, De la Paz, Cade, Yersavich, Hellmer, Iavor, Novicki, Gleeson, Claussen, Przewoznik, Christopulos, Haack, Chris- topulos, Rosner, Svienty.

Many of the Lettermen take it upon themselves to encourage student interest in sports and to promote attendance at the games, meets, or matches, as the case may be, handling the advance sale of tickets for the event. In charge of all sales is Mr. Hartman, the sponsor of the Lettermen's Club. 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- mings, footbatl player and wrestler, vice-presi- dentg Frank Montgomery, city title holder in track, secretary: and Bud Kelly, captain of the cham- pionship wrestling team, treasurer. Sargeant-at- arms of the organization is Ralph Snyder of the football team. r"' FOOTBALL First Row-Brown, Hamilton, Spaniak, Hoke, Zack, Heda. Dejitis, Mazzaco, Griffin.

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 top. ich, Beaver.

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 goal. 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 alma mater. 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. Q52 ff 2 Q4-,Q if f sa, 23835 f QQQQYG Q , QQ?

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. SENIOR BASKETBALL 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. SENIOR BASKETBALL cfs.

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 First Row: Loshbough, Burke, Wolinetz, Rochnich, Caruso, Coach Apking. Second Row: Mgr. Novicki, Vinci, Smarciarz, Laschober, Bohlin, Perkovich, Markus. BASKETBALL 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.

SOCCER TEAM 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 title. 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- ponent's 4. 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 Bekta and Willis McEwan. l I I I I. 11 SCJCCEI2 SCOIQES Tu-DEN-2 scuulzz-0 Tl - Tl T T T T T DEN - 6 QNUNDSEN-O -DEN-lO VONSTEUBEN LDEN-O KELLY-I LDEN-5 HYDEPQRKZ LDEN-4 LHNE - 0 LDEN- O HC-WNLEY-O LDEN-O CQFINE 4 0 am T9 J' Q5 2 I 4 X 1 , gs fi le!

This is the eleventh champion- ship which the Techmen have captured in Mr. Hick's thirteen years of coaching. This season's record includes nineteen victor- ies and two defeats. However, the two losses to Roosevelt and Proviso, the state-champions of In- diana and lllinois respectively, were avenged by subsequent victories. The team started off its quest for the city title by soundly trouncing Lindblom forty-three to three. Lane Tech, Amundsen, Farragut, and Crane followed in that order, and thus brought the wrestlers to the semi-finals. To reach the fin- als the Techmen went out to Fenger and came home on the long end of a twenty to fourteen score. In the championship meet Tilden faced Crane Tech, the second place team in our section, which had also won out in a semi-final match against the South Section representative. In the most hotly contested and thrilling battle of the year the boys defeated thir arch-rivals and won the crown. Captain Kelly furnished the most spectacular bout of the season when he got up off the mat. after being knocked out for a few minutes, and went on to defeat his opponent in an overtime W WHATS Tl-I I5 period. This broke Crane's spirit and Tilden swept 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 Bud Kelly. Petersen placed second after losing a heart- breaker to the Crane men. The members of the team who carried on through such a successful season were, Wilson 95 lbs.,Smith 105, Melas ll5, Simonetti 125, Black- ley 135, Captain Kelly 145, Moseovitz and Chris- topulos 155, Cummings 165, Mieskowsky 175, Pe- tersen, heavyweight, and Iohn Christopulos man- ager. Of these men,Smith, Melas, Kelly, Christop- ulas, and Cummings were veterans, the rest being newcomers. This was their last season and these five boys were a potent factor in the team's drive to the championship. All in all they contributed 224 points towards the team's total. Smith had 50, Melas 35, Kelly 58, Cummings 56, and Christop- ulos 25. qJ'gggb51gJ?p?m.t. X Xa!

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 League Anythings and Ramblers of Stevenson's Har- er's League Five Nuts and Five Aces of Bruck's League Maricich, Neumann. Fourth Rowe Rudman, Reckas, Rataj, Weber, Wegrzyn, Wojdyla. Solarski, Iohnson, Rock, Shafton, Danielson, Hutter, Gardeakos, Malloy. Fifth Row- Lurie, Van Hecke, Hudecek, Tousley, Knor, Mertz, Long, Makrickas, Pol- sky. Chrzanowski. Demian, Guard, Cairns, Filpovich. Ringers and Spotters from Milo-Wiesner's League 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 next season. 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 gt ggggs-if Wilbert Miller 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.

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 came about. 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. I GOLF TEAM First Row- Tom Milasky, Patrick Healy, Tom Davis, Iohn Granholm, Ioe La Vine.

In this system the most any player can get in a match is three points. An interesting tournament was played this year between the faculty and the school team. Mr. Sink-em-from-anywhere Gammertsfelder and Mr. Drive-em-a-mile Hotchkin defeated Iim Stalzer and 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, -and Faculty! SWIMMING TEAM "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.

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.

TRACK 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 points. 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- ship. 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.

Our boys tried hard and fought to the end but were defeated by a faster team and Lady Luck. 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. - Y i, -o K F - in 1 First RowfZach, hat boy: Clancy, catcher: Laschober, center field: Loria, second base, Captain: Fleisher, third base: Kawula, short shop: Iones, pitcher: Powers, catcher.

BASEBALL 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. 4r Jr BJOE'S VEQY .

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 CHESS and CHECKERS First Bow- Greune, McClay, Milam, Metropolos, Boinski, Iohns, Iohnson.

However, to join this club an applicant must beat Miss Uling in a fast moving game of checkers. Of the members of nine, seven were seniors. With Spurgeon McClay as captain and Mathew Williams as co-captain the checker team won seven of the nine matches played. THE LITTLE GRAFTSMAN l. Prepare Tilden for national defunse. 2.

We must pro- tect oturselves before the blow is struck. This is why I declare a state of emergency here at Tilden." 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.

EMERGENCY control all the N.Y.A. laborers at Tilden, draft stu- dents not employed in a vital defunse industry, and to lease, lend, or give material to any tech- 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. 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!

These portraits were developed be- fore the forboding cold gray walls, the drudgery of pounding knowledge into and slap-happiness out of the unwilling inhabitants, and the ex- asperation of answering the room phones only to be greeted with, "guess who? click," took their toll. Here they are young and innocent, but now - oh. But we're not complai in' much. We're men, aren't we, o are we? However, they do deserve some credit for sticking it out. The Capt- ain has been telling his little boys blue to blow their horns for twenty years now, the English teachers are still reading Shakespear, drawing teachers still perceiving perspective. and the shop teachers straightening screwballs. May they live to the joy- ous day when they'll tutor robots by winding cr motor. 'S TILDEN KONSENTRASHUN KAMP' Br-r-ring goes the bell-clang-down come the iron bars, guards are posted, orders for the day are given, and thus begins another horrible, in- humanly laborious day inside the high walls of the infamous Tilden Teknikel Konsentrashun Kamp, betwix da yards and da tracks. Rivaling even the worst camps under the Nutsi regime in conquered Eurfrica, this super-nightmare, design- ed for utmost discomfort, the furtherment of opp- ression of speech and the press, and the promot- ion of death, bondage, and the pursuit of sorrow. and named after Guy Vom Derdevil, alias Tilden, is symbolical of what our country doesn't stand for Cwe can hardly stand it eitherl. From the moment a prisoner steps in until the time he is carried out, his life is one long hard- ship. Ah, there's a fine broken-down specimen, Ima Droop: we'll watch him. There he goes to his battered-in, ram-shackle locker that contains stacks of volumes even Einstein couldn't read, a filthy uniform worn in the deep, dark, remote basement dungeons, a highly odorous get-up he's forced to parade in the huge combat arena Cor gym? when they want him to look like a crazy goof, and a book full of papers that are scribbled all over in red by' the merciless overseers. He's taking his tools out and closing his locker. He's preparing to march to his first cell but wait, what's that? A rifle squad!! They're stopping, the lead- er's giving commands-"ready, aim, FIRE"- BOOM! Oh-h, our poor ex-friend Droopp he's been purged. Quick, let's take a powder before they spot us-Bye, now.
