Oh, thus be it ever when treemen shall stand
Between their loved homes and the vvar's desolation!
Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the PoW'r that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer We must, when our cause it is just:
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust!"
And the Star-Spangled Banner, in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home ot the brave!

WE ARE ALL IN IT NOW
We are living in a state of abnormalcy: our homes, our school, our work, and even
our lives have been changed. With our every productive and industrial effort bent
toward victory it is small wonder that our educational efforts be bent in that direc-
We at Tilden are striving hard to prepare ourselves for the job at hand. We study
and drill to equip ourselves for the battlefield, or the home front. We work hard
and our day is filled to overflowing. The technical departments of our school are
working at full capacity training fellows in the shops and sciences, which are use-
ful to our armed forces, or for jobs in war plants.
Through the medium of art, music, English literature, social studies, and the lan-
guages we learn citizenship and build morale, both vitally essential in the life of
every American interested in the welfare of our nation.
Some time, too, is devoted to our physical training and an extended program of
gymnastic training has been introduced. Athletically our school is the finest in the
city, having this year taken several major championships.
The Tilden R.O.T.C., last year and for several years previous adjudged the finest
in the sixth corp area, is this year well on its way to another championship.
We have had to work hard, we have served the school, and in return our school
has awarded us with honor, service, and athletic letters, membership in the Honor
Club and our annual Achievement Dinner.
Our day is not devoted entirely to work, we also participate in the little human
events that mean so much in the school life of every student. Combined with our
studies these events have made up an un11S11CI1 school YGCII' And if is The PUTPOSG of

During the three years of his administration, our Commander-
in-Chief, Frederick E. Price, through competent direction of Tilden
has added greatly to our prestige as one of the finest technical
schools in the country. He has concentrated his interests upon
securing technical direction for his students that will prove beneficial
to them in both their military and occupational careers.
Three efficient officers are second-in-command under Mr. Price.
Assistant Commander Smyth advises both parents and students on
problems concerning school life, and diligent Chief Recording Offi-
cer Witt looks after the school records and finances in masterly
fashion. Staff Technical Sgt. Myers concludes the trio, an amiable,
soft spoken, shop efficiency and supply expert.

As Tilden prepared to devote its entire effort towards victory,
the representatives of our various departments were faced with tre-
mendous difficulties. This body was determined that Tilden students
should receive the best possible education before induction into the
armed services. While academic and technical subjects were re-
vised to conform to the wartime requests, many entirely new tech-
nical courses were added, such as pre-flight training, a refresher
course in mathematics, and one in practical meteorology as applied
to navigation. Training in basic military marching and ranger tac-
tics was introduced in a vigorous five day a week program designed
to toughen the students to withstand the physical strain of a modern

READING CENTER FOR REFERENCE
President Roosevelt said, "A war of ideas can no more be won
without books than a naval battle can be Won without ships." The
book itself is not a very formidable implement: it is a perpetuation
of one of the four freedoms, the freedom of expression. It is with
this great weapon that we of Tilden have armed ourselves in peace
time as a requisite of success and it is with this Weapon that We
again arm ourselves for war.
Our extensive library, the arsenal of Tilden, has a host of these
weapons. Volumes pertaining to aeronautics, engineering, engines
and special pamphlets reporting the most recent developments in
these fields, as well as the classics and the latest novels, are found
A fine library staff is headed by Miss Lois Rees, chief librarian
replacing Miss Hedenbergh who left us after a long period of praise-
worthy service to Tilden, Miss Rees is a graduate of the Univer-
sity of Illinois where she received her bachelor's degree. She is
capably assisted by Miss Taylor and Miss McCaffrey, who together
with many efficient guards, provide the library with the attention
necessary to maintain its postion as an arsenal in the War of ideas.

President of the University of Rochester
A thorough and complete understanding of
the radial engine cylinder is essential to the
pre- flight student.
Because it is apparent that air superiority has
become vastly more important since the begin-
ning of the war, and will continue to become more
important as the War progresses, a new course.
known as pre-flight, has been instituted at
Tilden at the request of the government. This
course includes in its sequence of study naviga-
tion, meteorology, mathematics, physics, and
aircraft engines-in short, all the subjects required
to go on to basic flight training. The competent
teachers in charge of this course are Mr. Stone,
The well equipped aircraft engines portable will soon be replaced by a new, permanent, and even better equipped building.
of the science department: Miss Woessner, in
charge of presflight math: and Mr. Burgchardt,
head of aircraft engines. This new sequence is ex-
ceedingly popular with the fellows, ninety per-
cent of whom have a desire to become airmen.
The requirements for admission into the course
are strict, and those students accepted pursue
their studies with a fervor that can be inspired
only by ambition. Someday some of these fellows
may lead us, thorugh the air, to victory. So we
hail them with good luck and happy landings.

GROUND TRAINING FOR AIR MEN OF TOMORROW
ir 'k 'A'
Now, more than ever, the demand for capable
aircraft mechanics has grown to immense propor-
tions. Working ceaselessly to supply this demand
is our own Mr. Burgchardt. This year he has been
stressing the correct use of the countless numbers
of hand tools that are necessary for the maintain-
ance and construction of aircraft engines by the
use of pictures demonstrating the correct appli-
cation of these tools in a manner that is interest-
ing and informative. The usage of these tools calls
for the very highest degree of skill and absolute
precision is required. The many students who are
at the present time, engaged in this course have
expressed positively no regret as to their choice.
Another all important shop in the aeronautical
course is the aero shop. The man on whose
shoulders sets the responsibility of instructing the
large group of boys who are eager for training is
Mr. Christiansen. The present function of the aero
shop is to teach the boys the fundamentals of
flight. Physics and mathematics are all used to a
very large degree in the construction of wing
sections, fuselages, and propellors. This type of
training is practical and invaluable to anyone.

part ot war-boys who are skilled in making and
maintaining electrical equipment that will go into

There must be boys who will repair motors
which keep precious currents surging thru wires,
boys who will keep planes, guns, and tanks roll-
ing off assembly lines, others who can harness
powerful currents lighting beacons to bring enemy
air craft into view. There must be boys who must
operate broadcasting stations in combat areas,
boys who can give wings to words of warning to
save lives in times of danger -A boys who can be
depended upon during all crises!
These are the kinds of boys Tilden is supplyng
to the world.
Buffing, generators, and shocks dthey're all part of electric shop. These lads know watt's watt.
OF MODERN COMMUNICATION AND TRANSPORTATION
In the battle of the supply lines the automobile
and the truck are essential, and since there is no
such things as mechanical perfection, repairmen
are needed to keep 'em rolling.
Here at Tilden, students are instructed in basic
repair work and receive a fundamental knowledge
of automobile electricity. Coupled with the excel-
lent teaching of Mr. Sessler and Mr. West, the
auto shop teachers, is fine up to date equipment
which enables the student to become acquainted
with the complexity of gasoline and diesel engines.
Body and fender work, gasoline and diesel
engines, automobile electricity and transmission
work are a few ot the phases of automobile repair
taught in our shops. The students find that exper-
ience gained at Tilden is invaluable.
It's hard work but it's fun. Special care must be taken in the repair of an auto engine-so it doesn't run backward.

others are making ash-trays, or gavels. They have
learned how to handle gauges, and chisels. Now
they are receiving actual experience. Pattern and
model shops branch off from here. In pattern shop
the patterns are made to exact specifications. Af-
ter being sanded, they are sent to the foundry to
be used for molds. Boys who like boat building
choose model shop. Many hours of careful work
are put into the boats these boys make.

CONTROLS THE THINKING OF THE WORLD
When you find yourself surrounded by hurrying humans, clanking
presses, the smell of fresh ink, and the shout, "Let's get the Times
rolling," you know you are in Ti1den's print shops, the finest of their
kind in Chicago. Mr. Van Artsen, Mr. Gleason, Mr. Keating, and Mr.
Maivald, the print shop teachers, are in charge of the production of
all printed material used in our school and also much of that used
by the Office of Civilian Defense in this community. With the thirteen
"Gordon's" and the two cylinder presses the work is done as expert'
ly as that by professional pressmen. The machines in the print and
lino shops are in constant motion.
Our four print shop teachers know of the demand for printed mat-
terials in the outside world and therefore try their best to produce
pressmen, linotypists, and compositors to fill the places of the men
serving with the armed forces of the nation.
Right off the press says Mr Keating: Tilden is one of the few schools boasting complete linotype equipment.

THE THEORY GF MATHEMATICS FINDS PRACTICAL
Spheres, hexagons, pentagons, decagons, dodecahedrons, and icosa-
hedrons, all parts of the Archimedean family.
Everywhere we see the practical value of math-
ematics. The radio, wireless, telephone, telegraph,
the structure of every bridge and building are
the result of mathematical calculations. The en-
tire industrial and engineering worlds are built
upon the precision of mathematical systems.
Mathematics is an integral part in the progres-
sive civilization in which we live. Geometric
curves and straight lines are combined in the
design and the making of planes, buildings,
dams, battleships, and guns in our present war.
Without the knowledge of mathematics we
cannot plan the society of tomorrow in which
there will be leisure for all and proverty for

EXPRESSION IN MECHANICAL DRAWING
"It takes Zeros 6.00011 to beat Zeros". Long
before a single piece of steel has been hoisted
into place on our latest battleship, our tallest
building, our longest bridge, or our greatest dam,
it has been built before .... on paper. Thus
mathematics is the foundation upon which all
designing and engineering drawing is based.
One necessity of our country, in our present crisis,
is the crucial need for well trained men in the
fields of designing and drafting.
Besides preparing our boys for the present
crisis, Tilden is also training them for the future:

TRY CUT TIIE SCIENTIFIC
In this training period for service to the World-for
that is what our schooling is--the important things must
come first. And what comes first in this civilization is
the necessity of living, thinking and doing scientific-
ally-in every broad sense of the Word. Science en-
compasses making tanks and airplanes. making rub-
ber out of oil, organizing industry, living without waste
in a rationed world, keeping one's self and fellows in
health, and a million other things. It also means under-
standing human behavior, recognizing the hidden
motives of human conduct, Visualizing the differences
and similarities of other people, both enemy and ally.
It means, fundamentally, the ability to tell the true
from the false, the effective from the ineffective, that
which does Work from that which does not.
Mr Werner Mr. Collins, and Mr. Goodrich confer on a very important chemical reaction. or are they just posing for a picture? Careful there, lad.
INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES OF TOMORROW ARE CREATED
It is not on the battlefield, but in the chemists'
laboratories, that battles are won. In fact, chem-
istry has so much to do with modern warfare that
no nation can look forward to victory if chemistry
is disregarded. Chemistry has been connected
with war ever since the first gunpowder was used
but not until the present war has it played such
an important role. Ths war demands an enormous
quantity of ammunition which could not be pro-
duced Without the aid of chemistry. The United
States must have many more trained chemists if
she is to keep up this tremendous output of munf
itions. Not only will we need trained chemists for
the present time. but the post-war world will un-
doubtedly by built by the high school students of
today. Plastic girders in skyscrapers will supplant
the steel which is commonly used today. Auto-
mobiles built of plastics will be lighter by a much
greater percentage than the ones we have today.
Concisely it may be stated that the future world
will be composed of the inventions which will flow
from the minds of our future chemists,

THE ETERNAL MYSTERY OF NATURAL FORCES.
Victory for the Allied nations in this World War
II will largely depend upon the effectiveness of
our modern war machines. This is where science
will play one of its most important roles. In mod-
ern warfare the velocity of the shell, the design
of the bomber, and the size of the ship determine
the fighting power of a nation. The physicist
realizes this and works day and night over new
ideas trying to achieve perfection. He has a hard
job to do and needs assistance: this is where the
yonug men now studying in physics classes will
be able to do their part in our struggle for victory.
At this moment the student physicist has dif-
iculties in imagining the enormous problems that
will confront him in the world of tomorrow. Most
of his problems will be dealing with transportation
facilities, new home appliances,and different
systems of heating for our factories and public
buildings of the postewar world, Many new com-
modities will be needed for the markets of the
world, and the student physicist with his new ideas
will furnish them.

Right now thousands of young men are being

students compose the increasingly popular biology classes at Tilden.
During former years the study of plants, animals, and marine life
constituted the entire course. But the advent of food rationing
demanded something in addition-that the student be capable of
the practical application of his biological knowledge.
Closely associated with this course is the Biology Club, which reg-
ularly holds forums in which members relate their experiences and
accomplishments in biological experimentation. Tours to museums,
zoos, and biological gardens are made and reports are given at

NOT IUST A BCDY OF KNOWLEDGE
From insignificant and humble beginnings, science has gradu-
ated into the great universal language understood by all nations.
It is the basic foundation upon which are built the machines of
today and the world of the future. The flight of aircraft, the operaf
tion of an engine, the commonplace accepted inventions that make
for comfortable living are usually viewed with casual indifference
and even disinterest until the multitude of physical and chemical
influences necessary for their precise operation are known and
reveal them as vital and fascinating miracles of science. At present
the great scientific potentiality of America has been diverted to
the requisites of war so that the scientific efforts of tomorrow may
be dedicated to peace.

English, correct and proper, is essential in the military and pro-
fessional lives of students preparing to enter these fields. Its cor-
ect use plays a prominent role in the success of every human bee
ing. The fact that the Uuited States Army places special emphasis
on the reading and conversing ability of trainees proves that the
English Department is not striving in vain to prepare its students
for just such an emergency as we are now engaged in. Sentence
structure, proper reading habits, public speaking, and vocabulary
building are some of the phases of the subject given special atten-

won, peoples have revolted against their oppress-

Long recognized as a necessity, the cultivation
of this rare gift is achieved in a supplementary
English course, Public Speaking, given under
power of expressing one's
the very excellent direction of Mrs, Pearce, Eng-

individual. Speakers for oratorical contests and

sity of Chicago as well as announcers for assem-

Among the fortunate boys of Tilden are the members of the orches-

ot note. The beginners receive the use of instruments belonging to
the school and are encouraged to improve until they may join the
concert group. This more experienced orchestra plays at our assem-
blies, graduation exercises, and many other functions. The selections
played are semi-classical and are supported by such soloists as
Kenneth Langosch, flute: Howard Swanson, violin: and Iames An-
derson, clarinet. The group is ambitious to improve and is most
enthusiastic in their work. Often the rehearsals are led by the student
director, Iames Anderson, who, from the expert way he wields the
baton, promises to be a real conductor some time.

What part can art play in the War?
This is answered quite simply by the pictures
ot camouilaged airfields, gun emplacements, and
barracks shown in newspapers and other publica-
tions. In service slang, camouflage might be des-
cribed as "the art of making things that are ape
pear like things they ain't."Because of training
in values of lights, darks, textures, designs, and
proportions many students are able to read with
great ease aerial photographs, reproduce maps,
chart courses, and execute code symbols. Every
outfit wants a novel ensignia to show off what
they do. Numbers.oi artists are kept busy draw-
ing these various designs for the service.
Tilden art students acquire the basic rudiments
of color, design, and lettering early in their course
as a necessary accessory in finding and promot-
ing their artistic tastes and accomplishments.
This year art students have been busily occupied
decorating some thousand boxes in beautiful
colors, which were sent by the Chicago Art De-
partment to the Cruiser Chicago as Christmas
gifts. Besides this, four hundred creative covers

KNOWLEDGE LIGHTS THE WAY TO A FULLER LIFE
Synonymous with outstanding intellectual
success is membership in the National Honor
Society. It is the far distant goal of every ambit-
ious enterprising young freshman and later the
termination of years of persistant effort by a small
group of scholarly seniors of each graduating
group.From each senior class twenty-five students
are selected because of their scholarship, extra-
curricular activities, leadership, and character.
Service to the school in addition to superior class-
room work is a pre-requisite before a senior can
even be considered for membership. Prospective
members are also required to have an E average
in their senior year or five semesters in the Honor
Club itself. Leadership as evidence of character
is a quality all members possess. For these boys
accept responsible positions as a part of their
training, knowing that this knowledge is pre-
paring them for leadership in the armed services
and later in ther own communities.
Only after these qualifications have been met
is the student eligible for membership in this
national organization. Tilden was granted its char-
ter as a branch of the society in 1929. Since then
these high ideals have been maintained and
have remained as constant as the flaming torch,

symbol of scholarship. Then with appropriate

SCHOLARSHIP AND SERVICE LIE DEEP
Of the many organizations rendering vital service to the school
none perhaps contribute more toward the prestige and local reputa-
tion of Tilden than does the Honor Club, for its members are the lead-
ers among their fellow students in extra-curricular activities. Ath-
letic teams, the Student Council and all those organizations whose
very existance is essential in student affairs and is necessary for the
proficient administration of our school, have been influenced by
dynamic club members numbered in their ranks. For excellence in
scholarship is but one of the attributes peculiar to members of this
most exclusive organization. Those groups whose membership in-
cludes Honor Club members have often had one or more as officers.
Membership is automatically attained when the student has an "E"

average for his entire course of study at the end ot the semester. As
a reward and encouragement to the student,an Honor Club pin is
awarded. Bars are added to the pin for each semester in the club.
Four consecutive semesters of membership entitles the student to
wear an Honor Club letter, an original design by members, consisting
of a double the most coveted award.
The Honor Club was formed inl922 when the need for a proper
award to students high in scholarshp became apparent. Since, under
Miss Lawler's guiding hand, the Honor Club has continued to func-
tion and to be a deciding influence in the big, little community of

Recent world developments have stirred a conscientious desire
in the hearts of students to obtain a sound foundation in history and
to become familiar with the governmental structure of our nation.
The social science faculty is well qualified to fortify pupils against
the scourge of historical and civic ignorance, and help them to un-
derstand the meaning of democracy today. Civics and history
classes establish the basis for a student's correct interpretation of
our democratic way of life and today's vast national and world
problems. In view of all this, it would be indeed dificult to main-
tain that any other subject was superior in importance to these
vital and related subjects of history and civics.
YOUNG AMERICA ANSWERS
"It's fun to know and fun to learn", is the motto of the "America
Answers" radio program sponsored by the Board of Education
every Saturday afternoon. The show consists of a half hour of quiz.
fun. and excitement for both the audience and the participants.
Questions asked are tough brain-teasers. pertaining to current
events and topped off with a super quiz on historical characters. The
students who participate in the program are selected high school
pupils from Cook County and compete against opposing schools as
teams. Iudges of the contest are high school teachers appointed to
decide the winning team. Three students who represented Tilden
during the past year in this tense period of quick thinking are Robert
Knapp, Michael Werth, and Alterd Nemoft.
Miss Murphy, shown with Robert Knapp, afforded
invaluable advice' and information to the Young
America Speaks Group.
Michael Werth, Robert Knapp, and Alfred Nem-
oft demonstrate the technique that carried them
to the semi-finals in the Young America Answers
This is Ioe Tilden talking. I thought it was about time to deliver my annual mes-
sage, so here I am, and here it is. You know, since I graduated, I've been around
quite a bit. I've worked in that war plant you've heard so much about, I've enlisted,
I've flown a bomber over Europe, seen action in the Solomons, why I've even visited
the school: maybe you didn't see me, but I was there. I saw what a swell job you
were doing in your scrap drive, your sale of stamps and bonds and acquiring that
education that's so important. An education for war, you might call it, with the in-
creased emphasis on mathemetics, the sciences, and physical training. One of the
things I saw that I didn't like so well was the number of fellows quitting school for
big pay jobs and the armed services. They don't seem to realize that after the war,
after the big pay jobs are gone every minute and hour of education a fellow has
had will be invaluable to him. Competition for all jobs will be heavy, and the lack
of a high school diploma will be a means of eliminating applicants for those jobs. I
saw, too a great many fellows leaving school early to go to work. This is fine if that
work doesn't interfere with school. I admire the spirit of any lad that tries to handle
two jobs at once, but these fellows must remember that their schoolwork comes first.
So a bit of advice -remember, use moderation in all things and stick to the job at
hand-stay in school and get that education and that diploma. Take the advice of
an old grad who wouldn't give you a wrong steer, and you won't regret it.
SENIOBS-IUN E 1943
When speaking of the school's most accomplished division I, of
course, mean Mrs. Marston's seniors. Proof of this is in the fact that
all but seven of our members are in the upper half of the graduating
class and eleven of these are in the upper 102. Being athletic as
well, we won the senior intramural basketball championship last
semester. In addition, our division supplies the editor-in-chief, execu-
tive editor, business manager, photography head and many editor-
ialists to the Craftsman, a major, two captains and a lieutenant to
the R.O.T.C. and the head and assistant head to the hall guard
systems. With this reputation to uphold, we still find time to buy
our share oi war stamps and bonds and acquire various civic, honor,
and athletic letters.
Having one of the most amazing collections of extra curricular
activities of any division, Mr. Montgomery's boys are graduating
with a record to be proud of. One third of the entire class are hon-
or students and two have qualified for membership in the National
Honor Club Society. Althletes are numerous. Harmon of the varsity
squad, Donaldson of the track team, Macek, pitcher of the baseball
team, and Gilberts of the wrestling team are all outstanding ex-
amples, while Pajor holds the vice-presidency of the Senior Council.
Tilden commends this division for splendid service to the school.

A class of tremendous potential energy is Mr.
Coble's senior division as can be seen from their
list of activities. It boasts ten students in the Hon-
or Club, three with perfect attendance, eight in the
H.O.T.C., and many others in various clubs and
organizations. It is also unique in that the major-
ity of these seniors, in addition to devoting their
time to the school, are engaged in various war
industries after school hours. Undoubtedly their
great surplus of energy will serve them in good
stead after graduation when many will enter the
services of their country.
Miss Swenson's group is an all-American
division. For like a well balanced team these
boys have entered in every imaginable activity
and have succeeded in all. Harmon, Maratea, and
Wray of the football team, Albert Mills, manager
of the soccer team, Schillaci and Stasiewiez of
the wrestlng team and Andy Widmont of the
swimming team are all students of this division.
The Honor Club, the Times staff and many other
clubs and groups influential in student affairs
have rendered more capable service because
of these boys' typical Tilden spirit.
One of the most prominent 4A divisions is Mr.
Iohnson's, whose members participated actively
in Tilden's many and varied projects, and who

have so long shared. Our outstanding fellows in-
clude Wally Cohn, efficient leader of Tilden's
scrap drive: Robert Blovis, a member of this
year's championship football team: Harry Reckas,
who in the division chairman, also is member
of the wrestling team: Thomas Sanford, who pra-
ticipated in the inter school math contest: George
King, our Craftsman collector: and Richard Ger-
main, our Student Council representative. The
fellows have purchased a very creditable amount
of war stamps and came in third in the school's
Red Cross drive. Most of them expect to enlist
in the armed forces after graduation.
Miss Francis' division is a true and worthy rep-
resentative of the 41-X groups. Its members partici-
pate in practically every school activity. Out-
standing individuals are many-among them
Richard Kroc, chosen by his classmates as the
fellow "most likely to succeed" after high school
days are done. Two members of this group who
have made the varsity wrestling team are Mc
Ardle and Eugene Ciesalski, who has also been
in the Honor Club every semester since he en-
tered Tilden. Two other students athletically en-
dowed are Dorz and Salvage who have made
the swimming and basketball teams respectively.

is also proud of ranking close to the top in this
year's Red Cross drive.
Mr. Pahlman's is a "regular" division of regular
fellows, the sort of young Americans that Tilden
and America can be proud of. We have our share
of athletes in Petrosious. Emerson, and Thom-
pson of the soccer team. We've given four fellows,
including two officers to the R.O.T.C. and contri-
buted two of the officers of the Chem Club. Ber-
nasek triples as division president, Student Coun-
cil and Craftsman representatives. And of course,
we shouldn't forget our Honor Club members, Leh-

gone into the armed forces, including Brockman
and Nadziezko who have joined the Navy and
Plefka and Klopsin who have been called by the
Army. Our division came in second in the school

able amount of bonds and stamps. So on the
whole, we think that we're entitled to consider our-
selves "regular" Tildenites and young Americans.
Another division that has proved its worth is
Mr. Timme's division which has taken part in in-
tramural sports, has contributed very generously
to the Red Cross fund, and has also helped in
Ti1den's recent scrap drive. Two of the prominent
members of our division are Donald Giampaola
and Raymond Olson, the former being our Stu-
dent Council deligate, and the latter, president of
that organization. Most of the boys work after
school, helping out where some man has been
drafted, and one of our own members, Casimir
Edart, is already in the Army. All of the boys are
planning to join the armed forces after graduation.
Probably the most outstanding division of the
February graduating class is Miss Seitz's group.
Having entered every intramural sport, they won
the basketball and volley ball tournaments. Re-
presenting the division scholastically are four
students who have been in the Honor Club since
their freshman year, namely, Goldman, Fleck,
Carr, and Iorgenson, who is also a member of the
school mathematics team. They are represented
athletically by Skelly and Fleck on the swimming
team, Stasnik on the football squad, and Fuhry
and Fleck on the senior basketball team. Charles
Delutu is the manager of Tilden's wrestling team.
Division 330, sponsored by Mrs Lutz, has all
four officers of the 4B class: Robert Helbing, Carl
Arnold, Charles Thompson, and Edward Hutter.
The outstanding students, scholastically, are Arn-
old, Bartkiewicz, Eisenach, Helbing, Hoffman,
Hhtter, Long, Lourich, Marzes, Pellegrinetti, Ryd-,
Shannon, and Thompson. The athletes are Arn-
old, Bartkiewicz, Grace, and Hutter: and the
R.O.T.C. counts ten cadets, including three officers
Robert Frisk, Lewis Babbitt, and Donald Brown.
Eight former members of this division are al-
ready in the service of their country: Alvin Eng-
fer, Iohn Malichuk, Iohn Ryes, Iohn Scalon, Ger-
ald Stevenson, William Stevenson, Chester Was,
and Antony Urso.

Mrs. Egbert's division is composed of the sort of
first class fellows who make our teams what they
are and our school what it is. Participating in ath-
letics are Obie Smith and Oliver Brown, crack
swimmers on the varsity team. Both of these boys
plus Edward Miller are in the Honor Club also.
In the R.O.T.C. are Frish, Iohnson, Milinowisch,
Mazis, O'Brien, and Wivinis who also serves as
a guard in Mr. Williamson's office, while Ridge-
way and Messina are hall guards. Monaco is

club. Sargent, Andrews, and Taylor belong to the
chess and checker teams. Sheldon Levin is on the

ling team. Honor Club members include Bramig-
an, Christensen, Levin, and Nelson, who is also
Craftsman representative. Iames Moy, a member
of the Arx and Arts :and Chinese Clubs finishes

Mr. Schaetfer's 4B division is one of the many
which compose our Tilden Town. The activities ot
these boys vary, depending on the individual
himself, and include sports and many extra-cur
ricular affairs. Athletic teams, such as football
claim three from our group-Reilly, Gennet, and
Levin, while the skating team boasts Robbins. In
the guard system several boys occupy positions
of real responsibility, the biggest being held by
Genet, who is a supervisor. R.O.T.C. ranks in-
clude six of our number who act as ushers and
M.P.'s in addition to learning military science. The
division also prides itself in having one of its
members, Eugene Medrich, in the Navy.

HERE COME THE IUNIOBS
With fifteen hundred dollars worth of bonds
and stamps to their credit, Mr. Haymer's division
has a proud record to look back on. Our inves-
tors have been Anthony Himszar, Iarnes Fueher-
myer, and Don Gajesevic. This class also contri-
buted very substantially to the American Red
Cross during the school drive. Many of the
fellows are actively engaged in sports such as
bowling, wrestling, and intamural contest, while
others are proud members of the Honor Club and
Student Council. As a room they have certainly
proven themselves to be such an active patriotic
group as Tilden wants and the nation needs.
This 3A division can point to fewer D's in their
report books than any similar group in Tilden, so
Mr. Buchanan claims-and we believe him. The
records show ,also, that these fellows led the
whole school in this year's Red Cross drive-and
this despite the fact that they number only 22
members and are the smallest of all Tilden di-
visions. With these proofs of high morale, we
should count Mr. Buchanan's boys among our
very best, even if they don't boast a string of big
shots who run the teams and clubs. How'bout it?

No dvision has anything on that of Mr. Mohler,
top rankers in various activities such as the track,
wrestling and soccer teams which many of our
members belong to. This divison has also backed
up the sale of bonds and stamps very generously,
one of our frequent bond buyers being Iohn
Boden. Among the more prominent members of
the divison are Alex Kazak, president elect of the
Student Council: Leonard Kocinski, a member of
the track team for three years: Thomas Guest,
the possessor of an eight barred civic letter: and
Anthony Pico who has been on the wrestling
team and who attended the last Achievement
The majority of the boys of Miss Hubler's divi-
sion have been together as a division group since
September 1941 when they entered Tilden as
sophomores from other high schools. Other boys
have joined the division since 1941 and in Feb-
ruary eight boys from Miss Henry's disbanded
division were taken in. All the boys of this divi-
sion are loyal supporters of Tilden's activities.
Four of our members attended this year's Achieve-
ment Dinner which designates them as 105's
most outstanding all round fellows. These for-
tunate guests were Charles Landre, Harold More
rison, Iames Rizzo, and lack Suker, and we were
proud to have them represent us.
There are many division rooms which have a
claim to fame by virtue of some one or several
important personages in their membership. But
few, if any, can equal the list of Tilden celebri-
ties in this outstanding group of Mrs. Pearce's
which includes Norman Krueger, captain of the
football team, Iames Mowen, star of the swim-
ming team: Iohn Neasbe, business manager of
the Times, Arnold Kunst, copy editor of the
Craftsman, and many others whose extra-curri-
cular activities are comparable but are too varied
and innumerable to mention. Division boys of
316 have already provided leaders for numerous
Tilden activities and undoubtedly there are
among them still more potential leaders, ready
to shoulder extra curricular responsibilities in
their coming senior year.
One of the best "grad" divisions, we think, is
that of Mr. F. V. Walters, better known as "Doc."
Our opinion is not unwarranted, as our achieve-
ments attest. Dick Stark, a four letter man, in
charge of the division stamp and bond drive,
sold almost two thousand dollars worth of bonds
and stamps. The Keglers of the division are rep-
resented by Putlak and Rudman, while Kozlowski
is a track man. Iohnny Gargas, who received
greetings from the President and who is now
stationed in Texas, is a former member of our
division. So we think our patriotic record makes
us a pretty distinguished group. Don't you?

Miss Litvin's 3A division is a truly accomplished
one. Proof of this fact lies in two intramural
championships fbasketball and volley balll, the
number of its members in the Honor Club, its un-
failing 1002 Civic Fund collections, and the large
proportion of students serving on the various
guard systems of the school. This outstanding
division also has representatives in the Student
Council, R.O.T.C. and on the Times and Craftsman
staffs. We are progressive and intend to remain
that way. So the rest of the divisions had better
look to their laurels-and quick.
Typical of Tilden is Mr. lsbaner's division, in
our opinion the best in the school. Doubtless some
will think differently, but we stick to our guns.
We have quite a few celebrities in our midst.
There's Wegener, Division President: Marz. Craft-
sman Representative, also those athletes Bartiro-
mo, Drozdz, Daskieniz, and Miller the "seal". That
lad Everett plays in the band and Alford's quite
an artist. The Honor Club is represented by
Wegner, Mraz and Miller. We fellows think that
much of our success is due the unflagging in-
terest and encouragement of Mr. Isba er

There are no school activities in which some
members of Miss Kizer's room don't take part.
We're 3B's now and with the representation we
already have in these essential parts of Tilden's
life, we feel we can be really helpful as 31-X's and
seniors in keeping things moving in our school.
Fellows engaged in more than one activity in-
clude Kriwell, Dronsuth, Gusich, Klouda, Kremen.
Huttner, Hynes, and Sindewald, but we have a
lot more who are absorbed in more than one. So
watch us go places.
Many rooms have no doubt heard of Mr. Kin-
sey's division and are probably jealous of its
record-with good reason. Look, for instance, at
Harnisch, Ianick, Gaffney, Jones Bosenwinkle,
and Unverrecht-they're all members ot the Hon-
or Club. And look at the fellows on the football
team-Nelson, Smith, Shizas, and Harnisch. Vari
and Iones are in the Drum and Bugle Corps.
That's no small showing in any division. So now
it should be easy to understand why we are the
elite of the school athletically, scholastically and
patriotically. lOh yes, we've bought war bonds,

Uncomplainingly, Miss Heintz governs most
remarkable division imaginable. In the space of
these alloted minutes a great deal comes to pass.
When trivial matters are laid aside there comes a
time known as "alibi time" refering of course to
the why and wherefores of make up, tardy and
absent slips. There is of, course, a good side
to our division: should any one pupil get a
failing mark, we take it upon ourselves to help
the unfortunate student to get back on his feet.
And believe me, here is one division with com-
paratively few failing marks.
Boom 213, headed by Miss McCarthy is one of
the many prominent division rooms of Tilden
Tech High School. The boys participate in almost
every activity there is.
We have Bob Martian, who has a letter for
wrestling, Bob Aikens, Bob Bowen, Frank Iacob,
and Len Balicki who are on our honor roll, and
Wickman, Wedel, Harris, Harrison, Faith, and
Feldhoff, who are active members of the R.O.T.C.
Also there is George Miller, who is in the band.
and three of our boys participate in the Biology
So on the whole our division is tops.
Miss Simcox's division holds the 2A intramural
basketball championship. Maybe the two men on
the junior basketball team helped, but that's
beside the point. Four of our division members are
on the football squad, one is on the wrestling team
and one is a quarter miler on the track team. Tech's
greatest athlete, aquaman Kotula was about to
join the swimming team, but he changed his mind
when he found that most of the swimming was
done in water. Our ranks are filled with various
kinds of guards, but the Clipping Bureau has far
the greatest following.

Mrs. Fitzgeralds division boasts more members
in the Honor Club than any other sophomore di-
vision. We have participated in all the intramu-
ral sports, although we have yet to win a champ-
ionship. Our clever division has members in all
the guard organizations and is also represented
on the Craftsman staff. We have, too, our repre-
sentatives in the Student Council and one in the
Executive Council. Looking at this fine record
who can deny us recognition for a job well done?

R.O.T.C. Only three of us found a place in music,
but you'll find one in band, one in choral, and one
in orchestra. Four are serving Tilden as hall
guards, and one as a lunchroom guard. The Honor
Club claimed three of us. Three others are striv-
ing for a place on Tilden's football team.

activities. This group probably has more students
actively engaged in events of our school than any
other sophomore division. These are the students
who, in the next two years, will carry on the great
reputation that is Tilden's. Representing their di-
vsion in the Student Council is Iames Reese, who
is in addition a member of the swimming team,
as is Richard Pajor of the same division. Other
athletes are Stanley Weiss of the football team,
Natale, and Weiss of the track team, and Page
and Stanley on the basketball teams. Malcohm
Stanley and Ralph Bergstrom are Honor Club
students and have attended the Achievement
Dinner as did Charles Weiss, also.

students who participate in school activities, Scho-

Miss Iohnson says her division is a good aver-
age bunch of fellows with possibilities that have
only just begun to emerge, of leadership in activi-
ties, scholarship, and school projects. Gerald Kac-
hinskas of the swimming team received honor-
able mention in the swimming tournament, and,
although this is a sophomore division, Ted Sajdak
has made the senior basketball team and is
now trying out for the football team. The Student
Council delegate is Edward Sage. Keep your eye

We, the boys of Mr. Hoffman's division, are en-
gaged in a wide variety of activities. These range
from sports to every branch of school service.
Grafman is a cinderbuner, Isaacson a matman,
and three of our lads are seals. Five of the boys
chose a more military pastime and joined the
R.O.T.C., while another six picked the guards.
There are also proud students who are members
of the Honor Club: Dove is in the German club,
and Isaacson is one of those talented lads who
make the music which you hear at assemblies.
Right up at the very top of the list of divisions
is Miss Mullen's. We fellows are quite defense
minded for we have an air raid warden, two block
messengers, and a three man scrap drive. The
three fellows participating in this drive buy war
bonds with the proceeds. We sort of like to call
ourselves the All-American division: maybe it's
because of our war mindedness. Karbel and Cer-
ceo have started victory gardens and Cerceo
writes regularly to servicemen. We think we're
pretty good. What do you think?

The boys of Miss Porterfield's division came to
Tilden from eight of Chicago's South Side high
schools. We have chosen Stabka as our delegate
to the Student Council, and Witthoft has proven
himself a capable Craftsman representative .Five
of us are members of the Honor Club. After one
look at the football team, a number of the lads de-
cided that a military career was the best one for
them to follow and so joined the R.O.T.C., one be-
ing a member of the Drum and Bugle Corps. And
so, you see, 325 has plenty of live wires.
The boys of Miss Bohman's division are engag-
ed in a wide variety of activities. Two fellows,
Keneth Mullen, and Iames McCabe, are members
of the tumbling team. We have two late arrival
guards and one adjustment office guard, and are
ably represented on the track team, in the Honor
Club, the Student Council and the orchestra.
William Messina was awarded an Art In-
stitude scholarship, and Iohn Meitz helped
in making knapsack libraries for the Red Cross.
We expect to go on acquiring activities and res-
ponsibilities and developing our talents until we
shall not long from now emerge as a most, if not
the most outstanding senior division.
HERE COME THE FRESHMEN
Miss Costel1o's freshmen division has really
taken hold this year as wide awake freshmen
should. They have entered the intramural con-
tests, become various kinds of guards, and joined
the R.O.T.C., and though no championships have
been won, nor any medals received, the boys
have found out that participation in activities
makes school life twice as interesting, and they
intend to continue in and enlarge the scope of
these activities with each passing semester which
shows considerable wisdom in freshmen. What
Miss Costello's division is most proud of, by the
way--and rightfully so-is its leadership among
the lA rooms is the bond and stamp drive. We
look for great things from this division in the
Attendance? Cou1dn't be better! Curricular ac-
tivities? Excellent! Bond and stamp sales? Perfect!
Certainly, l'm referring to Miss Uling's division.
A finer bunch of boys couldn't be found. Schol-
arship? No need to mention that with a fourth of
our division on the honor roll and the rest poten-
tially listed. Of course with such an outstanding
group, attendance is almost perfect and tardiness
nil. No names should be mentioned for the list
would include such an extremely large propor-
tion of our students for their outstanding work and
qualities. Our motto is "We Cooperate," and we
live up to it.

MORE AND NEWER FRESHMEN
Under the kindly guidance of Mr. Goodrich, Division Room 303
progresses rapidly with flying colors. These frosh, although bewild-
ered upon entering Tilden, are now right at home. They're going
out for school activities, buying war stamps, contributing toward
the Red Cross, and bringing home good marks-typical of the
Tilden spirit. This division can bear watching because, it's going
places. Such is the story of Room 303, who upon entering Tilden,
became really a part of it. And confidently, fellows, they admit
they're the best division in the school. Although they are only lB's
this second semester, they were eager to have their picture in the
Craftsman, and eight have placed their order for the 1943 edition.
That is really going some for freshmen!

Well, Ioe, after consideration of what you and several other re-

that your advice, advice gained through experience, is only what
we will find out later. A few of us are still skeptical, but maybe it's
meant for them to learn the hard Way. Needless to say, they will.
We want to thank you, Ioe. All through school we've had you for
our example of the average Techman, and those of us who have
seen fit to follow your example can look at ourselves in the mirror
and feel a glow of pride. So be at ease, Ioe, what you said will not
go unheeded by either freshman or senior. We realize the worth of
your words and are grateful that you should be so interested in our
weifare. Good luck, Ioe, and if you meet a Iap let him know that
Tilden is in this fight to the finish.

The first is freedom of speech and expression-everywhere in
The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his

The third is freedom from want which, translated into world

nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants-everywhere in
The fourth is freedom from fear-Which, translated into world
terms, means a world-wide reduction of armaments to such a point

E RESERVE OFFICERS TRAINING CORPS
Again this year, as in years before, the R.O.T.C. unit has brought
back honors for Tilden Tech. That the training received in our unit
is of the best is shown by the number of former cadets who have
returned from the armed forces as commissioned and non-commis-
sioned officers. The infantry training received here helps greatly in
the navy, air corps, and marines as well as in the army.
The success of the course which covers three years in largely due
to First Sgt. Michael I. Moore, our military instructor and a veteran
of twenty-nine years service with the U.S. Army. His motto, "Be
tough but fair," largely comes Ircrn his experience in the "old army"

Being a commissioned officer means added re-

ill spent. To the officers fall the work of instruc-
ting and drilling the largw units and holding
responsibility for their adeptness at these subjects.

A non-com in our regiment gets his stripes by
virtue of hard work at drill and theory. It is a gen-
erally accepted fact here at Tilden that the non-
coms are the back bone of the unit: therefore
special care is taken in choosing these men. Al-
though most non-coms aspire to become come
missioned officers, many become sergeants or
highly respected first sergeants in lieu of a com'
mission. This year our non-coms, headed by Cdt.
Master Sgt. Dave Huttner, are continuing to put

Next to the Federal Inspection, the Picked Pla-
toon Competition is the most colorful event in the
R. O. T. C. year. In the past seven years. our pla-
toon has taken first place five times. Few people
realize the time and effort that is put into the mak-
ing of a championship platoon. At Tilden, our
platoon is assembled near the end of May and
continues drilling until competition which is in
the following March. This year by order of R. O.
T. C. Headquarters, commissioned officers were
allowed to drill in ranks and many of them did.
Although our cadets put in long hours and
worked hard, they did not meet with their usual
success. They placed seventh in twenty seven
amid the cries of the astonished audience. To the
people, it was apparent that the Tilden platoon
was above its usual championship form, but the
final results showed we had lost. The boys left
the Armory determined to show that Tilden's
R.O.T.C., like Tilden's other activities, could re-
turn to the top after a hard knock.

is carried by the rifle company, Co. A. This group
is the picked company of the regiment. This year,

have worked hard and at Federal revealed them-
selves one of the finest drilled units in the city.

Now swinging into view to the tune of "Black

Drum and Bugle Corps. This year, under Mr.
Stanly Pinski, the Corps' musical director, the D.

many parades, dedications. and other events. Al-
though the prime purpose of the D. and B. is to
provide martial music for the regiment at its Fed-

panies may well take special note of the preci-
sion, personal appearance, and wholly military
air which distinguish the corps. Much credit for
the corps' precision and appearance must go to
the line officer who is the corps' supervisor, Cdt.
Captain Don McDowell. We at Tilden think of the
D. and B. as the finest music corps in the city of

Again, that hard working group of cadets, the
ushers. under the command of Cdt. Capt. Charles
Di Ciro has taken over the job of maintaining
peace and quiet at our numerous assemblies and
activities. As usher service is an extra curricular
activity, those cadets who have given the longest
and most faithful service in this capacity are re-

we did not have a circus this year, the ushers

command of Cdt. Capt. Roy Olson, the M.P.'s
have numerous other duties, such as acting as
special guards and first aid men at Federal In-
spection. As with the ushers,the M.P.'s who have
been most efficient and regular in performance
of their duties receive civic letters. Through their
devotion to duty in rain or shine, many serious

The fire guards are the group responsible for
the conduct of fire drills. These boys are assigned
to posts around the building and at the sound of
the alarm bell report directly to their stations.
Their duties are to see that the building is cleared
of all persons, that the proper exits are open, and
that order is maintained. Cdt. Captain Mussolino
has assembled one of the finest executive groups
at Tilden and the organization and attitude of
cadets under his command speak well for his
leadership. Again as a reward, civic letters are
awarded to the most effective and responsible
cadets. The R. O. T. C. and Tilden can well be
proud of such an organization as the Fire Guards.
In the few preceding pages we have tried to
picture for you a few of the activities, duties, and
procedures of the city's finest R. O. T. C. unit. The
reason for its success lies in the fact that they do
not merely do one thing well but all things are
:tone quickly and efficiently. All the groups and
units work hard butgmost importantethey work
together. With our exceptional officers, efficient,
non-commissioned officers, and alert privates
doing their best, Tilden can look forward to many
more leading platoons and champion regiments.

In Fortresses over Hamburg, on warships patrolling the oceans,
on the firing lines in the fields and jungles. Tilden alumni can be
found fighting the oppressor nations, fighting freedom's fight, fight-
ing for America. Our country demanded men who were physically
fit and mentally disciplined to withstand the terrible strain of war.
Tilden offered its athletes, its leaders, its Ioe Tildens. Today there
are over 1585 of our former students, representative of every branch
of the armed forces, serving the nation in all parts of the world. And
we are justly proud of a service flag bearing 29- gold stars for those
gallant Tilden boys who gave in the finest school tradition, a little
more than was required of them. To these fighting Tildenites we owe
an inestimable debt of gratitude for their magnificent sacrifices
for the preservation of our nation. It is to these, Ti1den's sons, that
we dedicate this section of the Craftsman.

High in the blue sky several black specks emerged from a cloud
bank and announced their presence by a roar of many motors. They
were bombers. Anti-aircraft guns answered the challenge and soon
black bossoms ot smoke appeared and hid the craft momentarily
from view. Unwaveringly the planes sped over their target and dis-
gorged their missiles. Downward the sped and spent their energies
in countless splashes of flame and clouds of smoke. And for many
such raids as this against enemy bases, Lieutenant Iames Iarmon
of the U. S. Air Corps. was awarded the D. F. C. and later was cited
for his skill and courage by Admiral Nimitz in bombing missions a-
gainst the enemy in the Pacific.

It was the morning of August 17, 1942. Thru the early morning
mists and gentle swelling seas, cargo vessels and transports escor-
ted by vigilant warships sliced their way each on its predetermined
course. Huddled together on the deck of one transport were many
groups of Marine assualt troops tensely awaiting the coming battle.
As their objective, Makin Island, was approached, the vessel stop-
ped and in the gloom the troops disembarked into armored landing
barges. The Navy's attack on the Solomon Islands had begun. The
battle progressed and the strain of combat fluctuated intermittently
throughout the day. The arrival of night signaled commanders to
request reinforcements in men and supplies and to list their losses.
And on that list of those killed in action was Marine Corporal Ed-
ward Maciejewski-of Tilden.

Many Tllden boys since their induction into the armed forces
have traveled extensively in fulfilling their military obligations. But
few if any can equal the curious intinerary of Seaman Victor Pet-
chul. His colorful adventures resemible a page from Marco Polo's
diary. Several months after enlisting in the navy he was assigned
to active duty on a destroyer patrolling the North Atlantic, and
thence to North Africa where his warship assisted in landing oper-
ations during the invasion. Crossing the equator the second time
his ship visited ports all over the Caribbean from Puerto Rico to
Iamaica. He was last reported studying for his navy commission.

The French call it esprit de corps: the British, courage: we Ameri-
cans, spirit. But whatever its various designations, it can best be
defined as that quality which drives one forward beyond his physi-
cal limitations. Robert Canavan was coxswain on a small vessel
patrolling the Solomon Islands area when suddenly it was inter-
cepted by a Japanese cruiser and shelled. Since resistance was
futile, the entire crew abandoned ship except Coxswain Canavan
who, remaining at his post, attempted to save his ship. A direct hit
on the steering apparatus forced him into the water beside his
comrades where they were mercilessly machine-gunned. The only
survivor, after all this, he swam nineteen hours before reaching
Tulagi, fifteen miles distant.

One of the outstanding air heroes of the war, a Tilden boy, was
Captain Patrick McIntyre of the U. S. Army Air Corps. He participa
ted in innumerable bombing operations against Iapanese shipping
and naval installations in and around the Philippines. On one oc-
casion his Fortress attacked an enemy cruiser, bombing it out of the I '
water. For this and many other exploits equally hazardous and be- V1
yond the call of duty, he received the Distinguished Flying Cross.
Captain McIntyre was killed in an aircraft accident at his lava air
base. Tilden is particularly proud of that gold star representing Cap-

Typical of the resourcefulness of our boys in the service is that
revealed by Lieutenant lack Ryan of the Army Air Force, a pilot
oi a Flying Fortress based in the Solomon Islands. Returning from
a bombing mission, his aircraft was damaged and he was forced
to land in the jungles on one of the islands. After temporary repairs
had been made, Lieutenant Ryan recruited five hundred natives
to construct an emergency runway for his plane. Although every

I ' I WE BELIEVE IN PHYSICAL FITNESS
Ruggedness, endurance, and bodily coordination are the goals of physic-
al education-education which prepares for war time or peace time. Physic-
al fitness in a broad sense is health: it involves the prevention of disease,
the correction of remediable defects, good nutrition, muscular strength, en-
durance, basic motor skills, mental health, and morale. A person is said to be
physically fit when he is free from handicapping defects and infection, pract-
ices good mental hygiene, and has the knowledge, skill, strength, and en-
durance to engage successfully in the activities which life demands of

enteen years which the Chicago Public High Schools have had
wrestling as one of its competitive sports, the Tilden grapplers have
taken the city championship fifteen times.

competitions. These four outstanding techmen are Art Berndt, 95 lbs:
Bob Martin, 105 lbs: Arnold Plaza, 115 lbs: and Ed Mieszkowski,

will not return in September, insuring an excellent team for next

The '42-'43 swim season ended wih our tech senior seals finishing
near the top, as usual. In fact they finished second losing only 'to
Lane, who in turn won the city championship. Our juniors, having a
bit of trouble, dropped three matches.
ln the City meet, held in May. our seniors again took second
place, topped by whom-that's right, Lane again. Amongst the sen-
iors, Tilden placed five men, namely, Widmont, Mowen, Arnold,
Hutter, and Karr. The juniors placed only one, Chapas.
In dual competition we find four of the tech senior splashers had
individually earned one hundred points. They are Arnold, Hutter,
Mowen, and Widmont. Amongst the juniors, with seventy-five
points, we find Heidenreich the leading point earner.

MEET THE PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOL
Tilden does it again! For the second consecutive year Tilden won
the City Public High School League Championship. By a three way
attack-running, plunging, and passing-the mighty Blue Devils
proved more than once they were Champs. From this team, five men
were picked for the mythical All City team. Ray Schumacker plung-
ed his way into fame by picking up that extra yardage that counted.
Ed Uvodich proved that he was All City calibre with his superb
speed and passing ability. Catching those passes which Uvodich
threw, Charvat, right end, invariably outsmarted his opponents.
No pass was too high or too low for this mighty Blue Devil. Mosko-
witz and Mieszkowski, guard and tackle, respectively let no grass
grow under their feet as they opened up holes for "Shoes" and Uvo-
dich These were the five warriors picked for the All City team. The
first game of the season resulted in a 21 to 0 victory against Kelly.

wrath. After Tilden had run through Englewood, Gage Park, and
Farragut in short order, Lindbloom loomed up again as competitor
for the Central Section title. We trimmed Lindbloom 21 to 6 and
Fenger, powerful meteor of the South Section, was unable to score
against our team which gallantly carried the ball over their goal
line twice. The following week at Soldiers' Field saw Tilden conquer
Taft, the victor in the North and West Sectional contest, to win for
the second year the City Publlc High School League Championship
by a score 20-0, Tilden again had the honor of playing St. Leo's
team, the Catholic Champs, in the U.S.O. benefit game for the City
High School Championship at Soldiers' Field. The St. Leo warriors
proved too powerful for the Tilden gridders and won the coveted
championship by a score of 21-14, but not without a struggle
as the score shows. Despite our disappointment in losing the very
top honors, we'll never forget that 1942 team.

body to cheer effectively and encourage our fight-
ing team requires skill, perfect coorclination, and
much after school practice which our cheer lead-
ers have given gladly. Captain Sockrider deserves
a lot of praise for developing the cooperative and
active squad that we have had this year, com-
posed of Rey, Crivala, Garcia, Mehring, Kaz-
lauskas, and Simms. At every game, rain or
shine, these boys have been on hand to do their
best. Most of the members of this group will be
leaving Tilden this year and new fellows will be
needed to give services in their places. Maybe
there's a chance for you, here in this useful field.

Following a tough, two week conditioning
period in which they were required to go through
exacting body-building exercises, this year's soph
football team stepped onto the gridiron in early
September. The first three weeks on the field
were taken up b yblocking, tackling. scrimmage,
and all of the many different things a student
must practice before becoming a football player.
Training under the watchful eye of Coach Warga,
this motley assortment of lads was soon firmly
molded into a close knit. competent squad.
The first game of the season was a big dis-
appointment, the score being 18 to 6 in favor

Getting off to a bad start by losing their first

unable to pull together sufficiently to defeat their
next three opponents, the scores for these games
being as follows: Kelly 3l, Tilden 27: Farragut 42,

managed to eke out two victories-one against
Gage Park, 27 to 23, and one against DuSable,

team started off with a 45 to 29 win over Harrison,
they had a mediocre season also ,as they suffered
five defeats, the scores being, 31 to 33 against
Gage Park, 40 to 43 against Farragut, 28 to 38
against Manley, 40 to 47 against DuSable, and
24 to 39 against Lindbloom. The team's three
victories were as follows: Tilden 60, Phillips 315
Tilden 34, Kelly 225 and the Harrison game. With
this year's practice and experience behind them,
the Senior team, like the Iuniors, anticipates a
far better season in 1944.

Mr. Raymer explaining for the
benefit ot anyone who doesn't '
know where the pocket is.
Saturday evening, May l, saw the first city high
school bowlers' "Victory Show" ever to be held in
Chicago. Special arrangements were made with
Mayor and Mrs. Edward I. Kelly for the use of
Chicago's Auditorium Theater, now a part of Chi-
cago's Service Men's Center. Instead of the usual
banquet which was not held this year because
of rationing difficulties, the members oi this year's
banquet committee planned the above Victory
Show as a substitute. Entertainment was provid-
ed from various Chicago high schools and the
acts were many and varied, including baton twir-
lers, singers, tap and acrobatic dancers, and
other specialities. Among the many celebrities
who attended was Bill Anson, popular radio en-
tertainer: Sam Weinstein, "Ten Pin Tattler", and
Hal Totten, prominent sports commentator.
In the course of the evening national, city, and
sectional trophies were presented to the various
winning teams. Our Mr. Raymer, as master of
ceremonies, was pleased to present Tilden Tech's
Iohn Roman with a medal for the national second.
An overflow house of 4,500 high school bowlers
witnessed this show with immense enthusiasm.
So the moral of this story, boys, is join the bowling
leagues next year and take part in these activ-
Tilden bowlers really get in the groove as is evinced by their excellent scores.

Skill, courage, and untiring energy made Til-

The long hours of practice accounts for the smooth
team work they displayed at all of their games.

was absent, Mr. A. Steven sponsored the boys.

It is interesting and encouraging to note that

this worth-while sport. Participation would cer-
tainly be of value to Tildenites of all years, since
soccer certainly develops mental and physical

The Letterman's Club has its own duties to per-
form just as well as other clubs, and even more
of them. Take the lunchroom for instance, which
requires guards who have enough leadership to
control the boys. It was not hard to decide who
should take the responsibility of this job, for the
reputation of the Letterman's Club was already
highly commendable. The members have also
taken over supervision of socials and have done
a fine job here as well. Every semester new of-

An activity that attracts all the boys is the intra-
mural sports program. Many boys in this way are
thus given a chance to compete in their favorite
sports. These sports are organized for the benefit
of the boys who were not fortunate enough to
make the junior and senior school teams. The
purpose is to promote better feeling among the
boys and give them a Keener sense of fair play.
The sports develop the boys both physically and
mentally, help them to work as a unit, and call
for teamwork on the part of all concerned. Mr.
Hartman says there has been a better turnout
for the intramurals than ever before. On the whole
they have been very successful.

and outpointed all other athletes with 26 points.
He had two first places and in the broad jump
which he won he outiumped even the senior
champion. Mr. Hartman, who has charge of all
the intramural sports, predicts that Swistowicz
will be one of our most outstanding athletes. He
is now taking part on the junior track team. Sec-

Today, as never before, physical education and

you have a chance being rejected, as nearly four
out of every ten men examined for our armed

to correct this manpower shortage, army and
civilian experts have studied how other nations
have met this problem and solved it. Americans
and the world are facing a Nazi Germany that
has built up its physical standards to the highest
possible point. Physical education in the Reich

soldiers, girls and boys are taught to harden
their bodies. The American youth is not soft, but
his physical condition is not built up by this
means. The average American boy receives his
exercies by playing such American games as
baseball, basketball, or football out in the sand
lots while his education in the school gym covers
such things as push ups, wrestling, boxing, and
many other forms of calisthenics. All this is clone
according to the American youth's desires, for
exercise is designed to free the body to enable
him to move with quickness and ease as well
as give his muscles tone and firmness. So remem-
ber this the next time you start grouching about
the strenuous exercise that you are being put

We believe in the dignity of man and the Worth and value of every
living soul, no matter in what body housed, no matter Whether born in
comfort or born in poverty, no :matter to what stock he belongs, what
creed he professes, what job he holds.
We believe that every man should have a free and equal chance to
develop his own best abilities under a free system of government,
Where the people themselves choose those who are to rule them and
Where no man can set himself up as a tyrant or oppress the many for
the benefit of the few.
Most of all, we believe in democracy itself-in its past, its present,
and its future-in democracy as a political system to live by- in de-
mocracy as the great hope in the minds of the free. We believe that its
future shall and must be even greater than its past. And to the future

These might Well be the words of a representa-
tive to the Student Council as he offers his sug-
gestions for the improvement of the school. For
in a democracy we are the rulers. Americansl
are governed by a leqislative body which is
composed of representatives elected by popular
vote. Our opinions are theirs and they express
our views on small pertinent affairs related to the
advancement of our nation.
At Tilden we have a government similar to the
national body of Congress, the Student Council.
In it are delegates from every division room in
our school. Each selects one from among its mem-
bership a boy who is capable, intelligent and has
what his classmates consider the necessary re-
quisites of leadership and character. For he is
their representative to their government ana must
be capable, typifying the best the class has to
offer. The representatives of each semester group
then select from their class, a delegate to the ex-
ecutive council which acts in an advisory capa-
city to the president of the Student Council. Thus,
the council is formed of eight class representatives:
five chapter heads who direct the various school
activities governed by the council: and the four
officers of the body, president, vice-president, sec-

During the past year the Student Council has en-
gaged in innumerable activities for the progress
of the school and benefit of its citizens. Many
campaigns such as those for war bonds, victory
books and Red Cross contributions have been
directed and successfully concluded by this or-
ganization. Thru its efforts, all students are better

of the Student Council was developed to replace
the inadequate by-laws and to serve as a foun-
dation and guide to future councils.
With each successive year it is hoped that still
greater participation in self-government will be
enjoyed and that each student council will con-
tinue to further the ideals of the citizens of Tilden.

CHESS AND CHECKER FANS LEARN STRATEGY.
P-K4, P-K4, B-B4, P-R4, Q-R4, P-Q3, QLB7-and
checkmate and another fascinating chess game
comes to a conclusion. Chess is a game of skill,
which is demonstrated by the fact that in ancient
times, wars were not won by physical combat but
by a battle of wits over a chess board. Now we
play for pleasure, but the requisites of logic and
concentration are identical. Our Tilden chess team
possesses these essential intellectual qualities.
They placed second in the city meet, losing only
to Hyde Park and by a very small margin. They
practice every day until six o'clock, under the
sponsorship of Mr. Collins, to perfect their tech-
nique. The members of this dynamic diminutive
group are Lee, Bandis, Laffel, Currie, and James
Anderson who is also manager.
Kindred to the chess team is the checker team
which plays twice a week after school with Miss
Uling acting as coach and sponsor. Checkers is
a fast moving game requiring wit and skill. Every-
body but freshmen are eligible for the team, and
it is possible to win a letter if one persists faith-
fully and improves. Intra-mural checkers has also
proved highly successful and enjoyable to those

Gleaning all the latest news about Tilden to be posted on our
bulletin board-that is the job of the nineteen members of the Clip-
ping Bureau. Every day they look through newspapers to locate
clippings relating to our sports contests, about which 150 to 200
clippings are collected in a semester, due to the number ot champ-
ionship teams which Tilden has in every field of athletics. Many
more of our clippings concern the R.O.T.C., social events, and prom-
inent Tildenites. Both types are submitted to Miss Simcox, who has
been the sponsor of this activity since 1928. She in turn gives to the
chairman of the bureau who sorts them out and puts them in the
case. All old clippings are filed in a scrap book where they can be
gazed upon by the Tildenites of tomorrow. At the end of three se-
mesters, the chairman and the two boys who have handed in the
most clippings are awarded civic letters for their services.

Under Mrs. Lutz's ever helpful guidance and supervision, a major
project of the Service Club for this year has been that of assem-
bling the names of and writing to Tilden boys in the armed forces.
The officers of the organization are Chris Stertman, president: lack
Long, vice president: Richard Eisenach, corresponding secretary.
Other activities of the club's bi-weekly meetings have included the
planning and execution of several Tilden's most successful shows
and assemblies, including the Pan American, Christmas, and Me-
morial Day Assemblies, The Tilden Talent Show on May 24 and the
band benefit concert on May 28, entitled Marching Along for Tilden.
So you see the Service Club is an organization quite invaluable to
Tilden and one which would be truly missed, should it cease to exist.
Long may it live and prosper!
On the roster of the Service Club are many excellent amateur entetr-

RED CROSS AND SAFETY COUNCIL
You can't tell a shell-torn or bayonet-slashed
soldier to wait. The Red Cross doesn't-and the
Red Cross is you, to whatever extent you are a
contributor. It is a fighting service against human
suffering in all forms, during both war and peace.
No branch of America's war effort is more vitally
necessary than the Red Cross. The Iunior Red
Cross here in school is doing a wonderful job. It
has collected 350 books for the "Victory Book
Campaign", and helped to supply the servicemen
with good wholesome reading. To furnish the Red
Cross with medical and other supplies, S450.00
was contributed by Tilden. The divisions leading
in that drive were Mr. Buchanan's, Mr. Pahlman's,
and Mr. Iohnson's.
Tilden's Safety Council was organized six years
ago by Mr. Buchanan to work for a reduction ol
accidents both within and outside of our school.
The council's chief work for 1942-3 under Mr. Post
has been to prepare, post, and periodically in-
spect directions for air raid drills, fire drills, and
special safety warnings throughout the shops.
And of course it has been, as always, the work
and purpose of the council to continue to keep
before the student body the importance of avoid-
ing all types of accidents through intelligent pre-
ventive care and conduct.

Tilden's scrap drive netted many
tons of vital cmd valuable materials.
TILDEN'S SCRAP DRIVE
Eighty-five thousand pounds of scrap: that is
our contribution to the nationwide scrap drive.
Mr. Walters instigated the drive, and soon had
patriotic students scouring he whole South Side
for metal: but supervising the work was too much
for "Doc" with his school classes, so he recruited
an able colleague to take his place .Mr. Woerner
then took over and, after being relieved of his du-
ties, devoted all of his time to the drive. He has
held several patriotic assemblies to promote the
collection of scrap by the sudents. Wally Cohn,
a war refugee from Germany, was the chief con-
tributor. This was due chiefly to his patriotism,
for he had witnessed and experienced the night-
mare of dictatorship in his own country. This was

the least he could do to liberate that country. Cohn
and his assistants, Herb Nicholas and Harry Roc-
kas, collected approximately thirtyffive thousand
pounds of scrap, which, when added to contribu-
tions made by other students, brought Tilden's
total to about eighty-five thousand pounds. This
scrap drive, which included a thousand pounds
of bronze and brass, netted the school six hundred
dollars. Although we have said much, though not
too much, about Cohn's, Rackas', and Nichols'
magnificent effort in this drive, we acknowledge
no less the true Tilden loyalty and fine patriotism
which inspired all the donors of the other five-

When interviewed as a typical library guard.
Dale Cade gave this following piece of informa-
tion. Well, our job is a never ending one. With
fifteen thousand books lying around to be filed
constantly, you can see we are kept quite busy.
We file our books by the Dewey Decimal System
and with his file open to anyone you can see we
enjoy being asked, "Where can I find this book".
Since our jobs are constantly changed every boy
gets to do a different job every few weeks. This
experience gives them valuable training as junior
librarions plus hours credit for a civic letter.
LUNCH ROOM GUARDS
One, Two, Three, One, Two, Three, Halt! Be
seated! All right, now you may eat .This type of
New Order with armed guards and prison walls
will never come to Tilden's lunchroom but a dif-
ferent type, a more pleasant and friendly order
has come. Less noise, no whistling, no shouting,
no throwing of papers, or reading of comic books.
This type of order was welcomed by everyone.
Under Mr. Woerner's capable direction this plan
has made eating in our lunchroom a period of
comfort and relaxation. The lunchroom guards
cooperating with Mr. Woerner have done a mar-
velous job. Heminding boys to pick up trays, bot-
tles and papers is the most important jobs beside
keeping order. These boys, most of whom are
from the Letterman's Club, after two long semes-
ters of good hard work, receive enough credit to
acquire a civic letter or an additional bar.
Keep up the good work, fellows.

does he know of the manner in which our make-up room is run.
Twenty boys, working before and during school each day, record
and fill the numerous make-up slips for tardiness and cuts as upe
per class men Will know. Two semesters of such clerical efforts
earn civic letters for these fto Miss Cullisonl invaluable assistants.

Then suddenly-"Hey! Wait a minute. Don't tell me you have to
count all those books?" Yes-that is what any one of our sutdents
would certainly say to any book room guard whom he might see
hard at work. Other duties of Mr. White's assistants includes dis-
tributing text books, receiving them after classes have finished them,
also checking and recording numbers on both of these occasions.
Iust think of Tilden's plight if we had no efficient group to handle
this important work! But fortunately we have.

This collection of valued articles filters into the capable hands of
our Lost and Found guards who write out a description of the article
and put it under lock and key until he owner claims it. Under the
direction of Miss Simcox, the Lost and Found Department has help-
ed many students recover valuable articles that they otherwise
never seen again. Three semesters' work entitles a Lost and Found
guard a civic letter.
Oh Guard, will you go to Room 436 and remind Ioe Tilden he has
an appointment with me this period? This and many similar errands
of accomodation comprise an adjustment guard's duties. Another
task of Mr. Strassman's boys is the filing of all Tildenite's records
for the teachers' use, both while the boys are in chool and forrefer-
ence after graduation. The accomplishment of Tilden's important
adjustment work depends very greatly on the assistance of intell-
igent cooperative guards.

As high school graduates We have a special part to play in the new
world that looms ahead. Many of us will have the opportunity to serve in
the far corners of the earth, there to uphold the ideals of a democratic
world. What we make of this new World for which We are struggling is our
test and our opportunity. We need to learn more of what makes a superior
world and to prepare ourselves through art, education, and human fellow-
ship to leaven the influence of a materialistic technology. We realize our
education has only just begun, but we face the future with courage and
the hope that We will not be found Wanting.

Before we send the Iune grads into the cruel, cruel world to be
harshly treated and pushed around, we might dwell on a few of the
lads who have accomplished a little more than average. Ed Miez-
kowski, champ wrestler, football player and class president, will
speak at the graduation. Knowing Ed the way we do, we know it will
be good. Quite a few of our prominent seniors passed the A12 and
V12 exams. Among them are Iohnny Sherman, Nick Platon, Ray Ol-
son, Sheldon Kaplan, and Chuck DiCiro. A couple of weeks ago Hra-
ca, Wood, and Widmont received membership in the Quill and Scroll
Society. Congratulations, fellows. Because of the draft many fellows
are leaving school early to attend various universities and colleges.
Already gone is Ray Beck and leaving soon are Hank Hudecek,
Chuck DiCiro. and Bob Chilenskas. We hear that Chester Stolarski
is going to be a pharmacist--beware. Smith Funk, cadet commander
of the Tilden R.O.T.C., is Cadet Colonel in charge of the entire
Chicago R.O.T.C. unit. Bob Vogel and Ioe Gurrister of the U.S.M.C.R.
are leaving for active duty Iuly lst. So long, fellows. We haven't
mentioned all of our friends who are doing, or have done, something
distinctive, but we wish to congratulate them and wish them good
Class Officers- Robert Helbing, president:

son, secretary: Edward Hutter, treasure-r.

Among the ranks of the 4B seniors there are Tilden men who have
proved themselves to be, in three and a half years, of a superior
caliber of manhood, and worthy of receiving special recognition
for their services to school and country. Some, who fall into this
category, left our ranks during the school term and enlisted in var-
ious branches of the armed services. Fellows represented in this
group who are serving in the army are Roland Pool, lack Russell,
Melvin Maas, Frances Levver, Richard Gentry, Richard Fisher,
Ioseph Haabe, Iohn Stanton, and Iames Monaco. Others from this
group such as Iohn Prunchunas, Phillip Fisher, and Clifford Bergs-
trom have choosen the navy for their military careers. Of those
who have remained to finish their schooling there are students like
Roy Olson, R.O.T.C. captain: Charles Fuhry, a Times editor: Frank
Skilly, athlete and Times reporter: Robert Iorgensen and George
Karr, National Honor Society students: and Ray Stachnile, quarter-
back on the football team, who have shown outstanding school
spirits. In the ability of these Tildenites to live, learn, and fight the
American way is the story of their scholastic and military successes.
Copy boy 4--get this to the print shop, but fast
Where's the fourth form? How about the copy on
the offce staff? Where are the candids for page 43
Is pagel37 captioned? This form has to be finished
tonight. Stop that noise cmd get to work. What do
you think this is, a picnic? To the casual visitor
entering the Craftsman room this last statement
might seem somewhat true,but is reality the noise
and apparent confusion are part of the tremen-
dous job going on behind the door of 208. Few
people realize the magnitude of the task assigned
to the Craftsman staff and its faculty advisors.
This year's staff, working on the principle of clo-
Gordon Wood. Editor-in-Chief
sfered to another sheet and pictures and copy
ser cooperation between the departments, has
achieved a book that we hope you will be proud
If we follow the making of one page from the
time it is but a thought until the moment a reader
opens the book and glances at it we have an idea
of the amount of work involved in the completion
of the finished product. Let us for example, take
the Times page. The layout artist is inspired with
an idea suitable for that page: then, lest this brain-
storm pass from his mind he sketches it roughly
on layout paper. This rough sketch is then tran-

are blocked in exact size. Photographs must now
be planned for and a color scheme for that page
devised. Copy is also assigned to a staff writer
who has a deadline to meet. When the photos
come in they are cut to the exact size for engrav-
ing, are mounted, and are sent to the engraver.
Meanwhile the copy arrives, is corrected, sent to
the print shop, returned, proofread and corrected
again, and is accepted. The proofs of the engrav-
ing, by this time back from the engravers, are
mounted in the master dummy, and are captioned.
The color scheme is also mounted in the dummy

and the whole is ready for the copy room.
We of the staff know few teachers who would
trade their comparative placid teaching job for
the nerve racking grind Mrs. Aldrich, our faculty
advisor, undergoes every day. We of the staff also
realize that without the firm guidance of her know-
ing hand, the Craftsman would not be what it has
been nor continue to be what it is, one of the
finest books of its kind in the city. So to Mrs. Ald-
rich and the rest of our fine yearbook staff, the
school, we know, owes a debt of gratitude.

EDITORIAL, ART AND PHOTOGRAPHIC STAFFS
This year, as for many years previous, our ex-
cellent print, linotype, and composing shops have
done a marvelous job on the production of the
Craftsman and because of the size of the book
and the fact that it was run in 'three colors, the
teachers, Mr. Van Artsen, Mr. Keating, and Mr.
Maivald were almost overwhelmed with work.
Tilden, one of the few schools in Chicago to print
its own yearbook, was truly fortunate when it

acquired the services of these expert instructors.
For experts and only experts could mold inex-
perienced students into printers, capable of per-
forming such a gargantuan task. Few of us, not
connected directly with the print shops, realize
the responsible positions of those groups.
The linotype room, Mr. Keating in charge,
makes all the type used in the Craftsman, but
their job goes farther. When a proof is made of

a block of type, it is sent to the Craftsman room
where it is proofread and sent back to the lino-
type room Where to be corrected. This proof-
reading goes on until the type is perfect and is
ready to be locked up in the galley,
The composing room, headed by Mr. Maivald,
composes the pages exactly as they are shown
in the dummy and prepares them for the press-

The press room, directed by Mr. Van Artsen
is the final operation before binding. It is in the
print shop where the galleys are assembled into
forms and the black and color forms run off.
The editorial staff wishes to thank the Crafts-
man printers for the cooperation they have
shown this year, and every other year, in turning
ideas and plans into the reality of paper and ink-
the Craftsman. We hope you will like it.
