With our every productive and industrial effort bent toward victory it is small wonder that our educational efforts be bent in that direc- tion also. 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 this book to give you q qlimpse of our school life and at the same time preserve for posterity the record of this year at Tildenf A l9l MR. FREDERICK E. PRICE Principal . M " ,L 1 'A' ir 'A' ir 'k 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. l10l L itl-. .L - J 1 MR. HARTWELL O.

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 war. We commend our thoughtful leaders for their persistent efforts to prepare us for the service of our country.

The individual's conduct during his entire four years, that is, his accomplishments and his infrequent and unpleasant ventures into Satan's domain, is recorded by each con- secutive sponsor. A benevolent disposition and an active interest in the student's Welfare are characteristically applied by these competent sponsors to make school as pleasant and profitable as possible to the students of Tilden. l14l 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 in abundance. 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.

This office keeps in close contact with the large industrial plants of the city and places many of our students in good paying positions. All seniors desiring work are interviewed and classified according to their vo- cational choice and aptitude. This opportunity is open not only for the seniors but to sophmores and juniors who wish after school work.

Arc welding is vital to the war effort: carefully turn- ing out a wooden rod: a- nother phase in the turn ing process: the first step in the construction of any thing is the careful draw- ing ol plans. Diesel engines have taken their place in this war: the welder's job is ct big one: flying wheels that generate tremendous electrical power. The immediate weapons of our defense remain physical weapons-ships, airplanes, tanks, soldiers. But the creation and direction of these physical defen- ses depends more than ever upon human intelligence and the human spirit. Physical defenses are the pro- ducts of physics, chemistry, mechanics, and organiza- tion, but they in turn are the products of men's brains. With the steel turrets of our battleships must stand the steel turrets of a nation's morale. Behind the dis- cipline of regiments must be the harder discipline of trained minds. Beside the wings of air defense must fly the more precious wings of our creative imagina- tion. 'These are the elements of victory. Alan Valentine President of the University of Rochester A thorough and complete understanding of the radial engine cylinder is essential to the pre- flight student. FLEDGLINGS TRAIN 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. f20 n Q1 La l FOR AIRWAYS 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.

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 ak ul' 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.

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. tttiit Buffing, generators, and shocks dthey're all part of electric shop. These lads know watt's watt. I 241 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. ttitiit 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.

The wood shop trains the students in the use and care of power machinery. Learning to keep his own tools sharp and clean is one of the fundamental lessons to be learned here. Next, is wood turning shop where boys are work- ing on lathes. Some are making bowls, while 29 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. l 30 THE PRESS Feeding the "Gordon" as Mr. Von Artsen looks on.

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. I3ll jf If 5 t..!t NX . Top Row Mrs. Condee.

I:32 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 none. d tif X p new W Above Mr. Isbaner, Mr. Post, Mr. Schlader, Mr. Butler, Mr. Haymer, Mr. Binkowski, Mr. Sterzer, Below Mr. Enthrof, Mr, Palka, Mr. Groves.

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: it will be a privilege to help rebuild the civilized nations which are being destroyed daily by mad-men who prey on ours and the rights of other people.

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. FIELD 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, 'k'ki'i'1tr1tr'k What would you rather do or structural formulas?

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. 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 T38l ,lrdltcrfb Mr. Steuber, Mr. Mohler, Mr. Hotchkins, Mr Ballou, Mr. Gamertsfelder, and Mr. Stone cooking up misery for students.

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.

While Miss Seitz has the French and German classes, the ever in- creasing Spanish groups are taught by Mrs. Albert and Mrs. Laadt, who is substituting for Mrs. Friedman now on sabbatical leave. The German language has been taken by many students because of its close relation with the scientific world. To per- ceive the full meaning of their literature a thorough know- ledge of their customs, history, and written language is nec- essary. The German course at Tilden attempts to fill this need.

Reg- ularly, the students look forward to each issue for news of the sports, educational activities, and social life of their fellow Techmen. The reason for the paper's popularity is that it has what the students want to read. Scores and reports of how our teams are doing, pictures and interviews of our prominent seniors, and reports of current news events in the halls of Techmania are among its features.

Speech, that thoughts, is that which has for ages past distin- guished men of otherwise insignificant abilities and given them the power of persuasion over their fellow men. Unfought battles have been won, peoples have revolted against their oppress- ors, continents have united in a renewed underf standing of one another because of the fiery elo- quence of a forceful, logical orator. 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- lish instructor. Formal debating and panel dis- cussions in class, related to many varied sub- jects, develop poise and self-assurance in the individual. Speakers for oratorical contests and the annual Round Table discussion at the Univer' sity of Chicago as well as announcers for assem- blies are derived from these groups.

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.

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, the symbol of the National Honor Society, the symbol of scholarship. Then with appropriate ceremony the students pledge "to uphold the high purpose of the National Honor Society.. .....,.., striving in everyway by word and deed to make its ideals, the ideals of my school and of my life."

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" First How Di Ciro.

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 Tilden.

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. U01 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 contest. tttti' E711 HELLO, FELLOWS, 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. Mrs. Marston First Row-DiCiro, Hudec- ek, Mrs, Aldrich. Wood. M11 Marston, Stastny, Gurrister, Morande.

A patriotic air is given Miss Moran's division by the many students associated with the military, Smith Funk of the Tilden B.O.T.C. having been given command of all R.O.T.C. units in the Chi- cago high schools while Art Drummond formerly of this division recently entered the Army. Press operator Ioe Graff and Victor Peterson, end of the football team, are also included in this divi- sion. Altogether this entire division seems to have dedicated itself to serving the school and serving it well. 74 Miss Moran First Row Flood, Froio. Vella, Garcia, Grat, Kohs, Leamy, Vizza.

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. l SENICDR DIVISIONS 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 Miss Swensen First How Rasch, Scalese, Luisi.

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. l75l SENIOR DIVISIONS 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. Miss Francis First Row Soderling. Luc- chetti, King, Kroc, Miss Francis.

Our division is also proud of ranking close to the top in this year's Red Cross drive. 78 l 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- man and Petrosious. Several of our fellows have 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 Red Cross drive, and has purchased a very credit- I77 Mr. Pahlman First Row Cooper, Mc Murray, Majdecki, Trojan- owski, Wukas, Mr. Pahl- man, Regnier, Mc Grath, Dooley, Raczynski, Second Row -- Brockman, Truse, Swiech, VanNamen, Lehman, Coleman, Nan- esta, Bibeau, Plefka.

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. l SENIOR DIVISIONS 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. l 78 Miss Seitz First Row Burns.

SENIOR DIVISIONS 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 head of the Department of Public Relations and Obie Smith their able Student Council represen-- tative. We feel that we truly do our part in keep- ing Tilden a regular school for regular fellows. Mrs. Egbert First Row - Reed, Miller, Wivinis, Mrs. Egbert, Saw- allisch. Edwards. Sales.

One of the most outstanding is Frank Weiss, member of the Honor Club, the Times and Craftsman staffs, and the R.O.T.C. Leo Williams is a member of the Honor Club and concert orchestra. The manager of Tilden's basketball team is Harold Zegart. Forian Szymczak and William Clabby are our chapter head and election commissioners, respec- tively. And if we had a service flag it would have five stars for members of the division now in the armed services. 79 l l l Mrs. Garas First How Moy, Bearden, Mrs. Garas, Pippenger, Taylor.

Garas, has been active in all school activities. Ray Yurevich is the Sudent Council Representa- tive. Bichard Sosur,election commissioner, is a member of the Craftsman staff, band, and choral club. Sargent, Andrews, and Taylor belong to the chess and checker teams. Sheldon Levin is on the Times and Craftsman staffs and the varsity wrest- 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 this imposing list of busy seniors. 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.

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 Dinner 1821 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. IUNIOR DIVISIONS 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.

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 X TT WA K Miss Litvin First Row - Mc Greal. Krze-minski, Miss Litvin. Szalko, Beaudreau.

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- I 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, tool.

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 Club activities. 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? From Bowen, DuSable, Englewood, Fenger, Gage Park, Holden Branch of Englewood, Hyde Park. Kelley, Lindblom, Morgan Park, Phillips, St. Leo, St. Mary of Perpetual Help and, St. Rita we came as sophmores to Tilden last September. One from Airkin, Minnesota, completed the group. Our in- terest soon directed us to find nine of us in the 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. Under the guidance of Mrs. Blake, the students of Room 232 have participated in many school 88 Miss Keller First How' A Goodman. A. Cooper. Chinn, Miss Keller, Crossley, Litke, Burnett.

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. l SOPHOMOBE DIVISIONS Miss Kuehne's division, which congregates in Room 103, although a freshman group, has many students who participate in school activities, Scho- lastically, Clarence Anderson, Stanley Bielawski, and Morris Stein excell and are members of the Honor Club. Robert Smunt and Felix Spooner be- long to the concert orchestra. Our members of the City Championship wrestling team is Casimio Stempora, Ieosph Szato being our Student Council representative along wih his other activities as Craftsman representative and band member.

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.

SOPI-IOMORE DIVISIONS 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?

SOPHGMOBE DIVISIGNS 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- l91l 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 future. 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. 92 First Row Neubauer, Fitz- patrick, Ernstberger, Miss Costello, Nowak, Budzyn- ski, Budden. Second Row Suppes, Mor- os.

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! Mr. Goodrich First How-Genrqopulos. Dama, Fiske, Mr. Good- rich, Macas, Crusing, Dro bistch.

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.

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" During the present conflict, the value of R.O.T.C. training has again been demonstrated in the ease with which former members have stepped into the Officer Candidate Schools and made a success of themselves.

'lr 'A' 'A' ir ir 'A' - 41 ,- K . . I ,, If Q 'Cnr Sgt. Moore directs operations against an imaginary enemy: now youlook like a soldier lad The course of instruction which is prescribed by the War Depart- ment includes training in close and extended order drill, military his- tory of the U. S., customs and courtesies of the service, rifle marks- manship, first aid, and combat principles as well as other military subjects. The goal of every R.O.T.C. unit in the city is to receive top honors at Federal Inspection. Annually the War Department sends an officer or group of officers to all parts of the country. In the last seven years, the Tilden Tech R.O.T.C. has taken first place six times and has des- ervedly become known as the "West Point of Chicago". This year because of the added impetus of the war, the race for first place will be tougher than ever, but with the old Tilden spirit to win, how can we lose. This scene of orderly activity is typical of the R O T C w -5 . ul ,ll is Mlfffffffgri The goal of every new recruit is to become a non-com and eventually a commissioned officer. Being a commissioned officer means added re- sponsibilities and more work, but very few cadet officers who receive their brevet commission at graduation feel that their time and energy was 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. This year, a new honor has been added to our long list: our commanding officer Cdt.

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 forth their best as is usual with them. First How Burke, Marich, I-ide ,Funk, Sollis, Frisk, Chilenskas, Oksas, Pendrys, Deskis, Colbert.

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. Tilden's Picked Platoon may be seen drilling in the lobby every day.

Al- though the prime purpose of the D. and B. is to provide martial music for the regiment at its Fed- -. D.. ,f 1 .l s E' l A1 A Xf"5ms.t-xg! T eral Inspection and parades, the regular line com- 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 Chicago. :fr I .s T With a blare of trumpets and - ' ' and a rattle of drums the " ' "ij Drum and Bugle Corps strikes , a military beat. 1' tt 5.41 i'1tr'k'k'kirir'A"ki'1k'ki' MILITARY POLICE AND USHERS First Row Cbvanauqh, Nagorski, Clark, McDo- well, Funk, Sgt, Sollis, Olson, Frisk, lennings, Wickman, King.

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- warded with well deserved civic letters. Although we did not have a circus this year, the ushers participated at P. T. A. meetings and at the Thanksgiving Banquet. Another set of extra duties taken on by the R.O.T.C., are those of the M.P.'s, more formally called the Military Police. These young men a- long with the ushers are perhaps the best known of the R.O.T.C.'s extra service groups. Under the 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 accidents at and around school have been prevented. First How Cavanaugh, Nagorski. Brown, Olson, Funk, Di Ciro.

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. A great deal of military theory is taught in the lecture room.

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. First Row---AAndrew I. Steinbeck, Ed, Lazo, Robert L. Moy, Iohn Nav- ratil.

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.

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. 41 if Z F sz g s Q I.. p if S 3 A ' 'K r ' - Z ,,...... L . F .

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. 444 ,. U 114 . it 440 A?

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.

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 ' Ed f 1. water. For this and many other exploits equally hazardous and be- V1 yond the call of duty, he received the Distinguished Flying Cross.

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 him.

Tilden finally managed to eke out two victories-one against Gage Park, 27 to 23, and one against DuSable, 4l to 22. This finished the schedule for the Iunior section, and although their record was not an en- viable one, the boys are already looking forward to improving it next year. Although the Senior Play is hot and heavy in the most strenuous of games. 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. First Row - Dombrowski, Antosfak, Capt.

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- ities. Tilden bowlers really get in the groove as is evinced by their excellent scores. o Q oe o 0 ef Qing: Q of 0 1,40-:O Af !-' ,-1 Os -J X fmt, M S fill 4145 Qt, 5 W1 Seated- Gottlof, Sahagun, Coach Hartman, Emerson, Wichers.

LETTEBMAN'S CLUB If you happen to be walking down the halls of Tilden and ask some of the fellows what they would most like to achieve, the majority of them will say, "Make the team, win my letter, and join the Letterman's Club." Yes, that's the ambition of every average Techman, but only a few succeed and those who do, stand out as very prominent students. Some ot these Lettermen have stars on their letters designating them as team captains: others have gold letters signifying membership on cham- pionship teams: the majority of course, wear the unadorned blue letters awarded to the aver- age team members, but widely envied neverthe- less.

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- ficers are elected, those of the past semester hav- ing been Meizkowski, president: Maratea, vice- president: Zintak, secretary: Markus, treasurer: and Martin, sergeant-at-arms.

Not to be outdone, the junior team broke the city record by .2 sec- onds, their time being l39.7. Much of the credit for these enviable achievements goes to Coach Harvey, who spent many tedious hours giving these boys valuable pointers, without which they would have been greatly hampered in their efforts to place in these meets.

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.

Many more boys than were expected turned out for this event. There were four differ- ent weight classes. First in the A division was that for boys weighing from 95 to 115 pounds. Iaso, from Mrs. Pearce's room, won this championship after a thrilling duel. Then Kyros from Mr. Pfister's room took honors in the B class for boys weigh- ing from 115 to 135.

If you are waiting to be called into the Army, Navy, or Marines you will, of course, want to be in the prime of condition for even then you have a chance being rejected, as nearly four out of every ten men examined for our armed forces are turned back. In planning a program 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 continues from kindergarten up to professional school. This idea has been established by Hitler himself who has said "The German boy must xl I Qf-'41 O J Cr JS Atl ,QQ ODI 0 f-23 ., Q AN fftVO Qgjl aff U fl!

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 through and be intelligently grateful instead.

" 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- ted Helbrng treas Arnold,sec.: Olson, pres.: Pajor, vice-pres.

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 informed of student affairs and consequently are able to comment logically and register their o- opinions on matters of importance to the school Sophomore Representatives: First Row: Melas, Hackbush, Sage, Reece, luhlin, Weinberg, Zebrowski, Szabo, Second Row: Barbar, Palka.

Increased co-operation be- tween students and faculty has also been attained and the council of the latter has been most val- uable on technical matters pertaining to parli- mentary procedure, etc. This year a Constitution 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 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 participating. NK.. Second How Sargent, Friedman. Miss Uling. Seated - Anderson. mgr.: Coffel, Randis, Currie.

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. Richard Price, chairman of Clipping Bureau. and Ronald Ursich see that the latest news is posted. ll SERVICE l CLUB First Row - Kunz, Streich, Eisenach, Slivinski, Mrs. Lutz, Stertman: president, Long. vicepresident, Marzec, Fair- weather, Kowalsky.

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- tainers. Standing Mr, Gameihfelder, Ed- win, Pajor, Walter Grenda. Seated Richard Pajor, president: Frank Gill.

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 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.

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- thousand pounds. . , .,. ..., --.ffeef--fvww-v-e.,f--ever..-,.. ,.- K..n......--,,,-t-.-.tvfwfg-11-nu: LIBRARY GUARDS First Row Paczynski, Bead- reau, Walt, Garcia, Miss Rees Natale , Stefan, Zorn, Tala- mone.

If these boys didn't file ab- sence and cut slips in teachers' boxes no one would get absence slips. Wouldn't that be simply terrible! The reason these boys are called gen- iuses is a mystery, although belonging to the Honor Club before being allowed on the office staff may have something to do with it. All these tasks add up to a civic letter for the deserving boys. OFFICE GUARDS First Row Konieczha, Ray- mer, Fairweatheer, Brockman, Mr. Price, Roubik. Spalding, Kowalsky, Richter.

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. First Row Daley, Schaefer Mills, Monaco, Mr. Apking Garcia, Froio, Tomaszkiewicz Morici. Second How Raymond.

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. ADI USTMEN T GUARDS First How - Millet. Sutphen, Groomer.

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.

ZIOBRA 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 luck.

ZEGART BRUNO ZIOGAS 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 s, THE CRAFTSMAN sfered to another sheet and pictures and copy ser cooperation between the departments, has achieved a book that we hope you will be proud of. 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- 1 S .M Iohn Dluski. Art Editor. Henry Hudecek. Executive Editor. I STAFF OF 1943 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 , g ,wi K 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. The Craftsman Staff in quiet moment of work a rare occasion ' NOT! nur A ar J u THA!

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.
