HAT is our position as stu-
dents in this World at war?
During this momentous per-
iod of universal crisis we can have
but one purpose-to preserve our
ideals of freedom-to Win the War.
Our part in this struggle is part of
the history of our school. And it is
this vital, factual account of three
thousand students as they train for
their futures in war and peace, that
We, the Craftsman Staff, have con-
scientiously endeavored to present
to you. As you view the following
pages, you will see that we have
attempted to illustrate graphically
what We are doing to prepare our-
selves for this dual future. You will
see us in the classroom and the laboratory, absorbing the sub-
stance of mathematics, chemistry, and mechanics. We have
earnestly attempted to obtain mastery over their fundamental
theories, for we know that this knowledge is essential to a def-
inite understanding of their practical application in modern
Neither have We neglected physical training, and gymnast-
ics and competitive athletics form a definite and necessary part
of this program. Those of us in the reserve militia have had the
advantage of valuable advanced training in our future duties
that will aid considerably in our conception of military tactics.
Having completed this preliminary training we are ready to
assume that greater responsibility of safeguarding the nation.
Already scores have left to lend their aid to the multitude of
those who have long since entered the fight. They are number-
ed in the thousands and are rendering distinguished service
All Cut for
a New WMM
to our nation in combat. As you
leisurely peruse this book, look at that
service flag proudly bearing its hun-
dred gold stars for fellow students who
sacrificed all for their country.
Yet when victory is ours and enemy
and ally alike have returned to peace-
ful pursuits, We shall have an even
greater responsibility-to help rebuild
this World. To redesign it economically
and socially so that each may enjoy
individual freedom is our purpose. We
cannot prize our freedom too highly. Our
future as individuals and as a nation
depends upon our defense and peserva-
tion of it. We intend to do our share for-

And what she is to be"

HAT has happened to the class of '43 since their gradua-
tion one year ago? Where are they and what are they
doing? These are fitting questions to be asked of a sen-
ior class which graduated in the midst of war. For even before
their education had been completed many of these youthful
technicians had enlisted in various reserves and specialized
training programs. Others awaited their conscription and now
over seventy percent have been inducted into the various ser-
vices. Correspondence reveals that these alumni have been
scattered throughout the world in colleges and training camps
on our continent and in the far flung outposts of our first lines.
lnvariably they have praise for their intellectual training and
urge that We devote ourselves with greater zeal to our studies.
Little do they say about the hardships they have undergone,
the friends they left behind. They have a job to do and they
propose to finish it quickly. It is to these, our classmates of yes-
terday, that We dedicate these pages of the Craftsman.

As many of this class exhibited definite intell-
ectual ability, it is not surprising that we now find
many of them continuing their education while
in the service. During normal times, some of these
boys would not have had this opportunity for
education. But now under the various specialized
training programs of the services, they are being
given brief and thorough training courses in tech-
nical and scientific subjects in universities thru-
out the nation. At Fort Knox, Kentucky, we find
Pvt. Chester Klock under the army reserve tech-
nical corps: at Syracuse University, New York,
apprentice Seaman Tom Cavanaugh: at Knox
College, Illinois, Pvt. Andy Klotniag at Dickenson
College, Pennsylvania, apprentice seaman, Dav-
id Rocheg and at the University of California, Ap-
prentice seaman, Tom Sanford.
These are but a few who have been given this
added training for the future. This education will
be a valuable asset to these boys in war and

It is interesting to note the efficiency with which
our technical students have adapted themselves
to military life. Because of their unusual resource-
fulness and knowledge of mechanics, we find
many of them in services which require respon-
sible, technically trained youth. For the machines
of war are complicated mechanisms whose oper-
ations are intricate processes. It is not suprising
then, that so many of these boys should be sel-
ected for such positions as that of Pvt. Art Drum-
mond, who specializes in anti-aircraft artillery:
Pvt. Bill Stefanu of the combat engineers: air
cadet Melvin Friedlander of the army air corps'
navigation division: Seaman Ioe O'Brien of the
armed guards, and Seaman Frank Wos of the
Fleet Sound school.
Our files record the names of many others who
have utilized their technical training similarly.
Their services are vitally needed, and they are
doing much to bring victory nearer.

Since we received the photographs and letters from these fell-
ows to whom we have dedicated this Craftsman many have been
transfered from one camp to another, from one type of training to
another, and many have been sent overseas to England and to the
South Pacific. News becomes old overnight so rapidly do thes class-
mates of '43 travel on their way. Hardly a day has passed since
last September that the Craftsman Staff has not had a uniformed
visitor. All these ex-Tildenites agree on three things: they like to
hear from Tilden, they are out to do cheerfuly a job that has to be
done, and they are coming back to carry on their education where
they left off. All of them speak appreciatively of the letters, bullet-
ins, books, and copies of the Times and Craftsman that are sent
them by students and faculty.

Designed to create a vast pool of civilian pilots
for the armed forces, the C- A. P. has drawn
many Tilden students into its ranks. Under its
program, a student, interested in aviation- may
enroll as a cadet, and after a period of instruct-
ion in aircraft maintenance, instruments, and
flight he may become a licensed pilot-
Many students, likewise, have been selected for
the A-5 and V-5 limited training programs and
for the officer candidate courses.

A Blueprint for a
FTER the war, what? A great new world. A new world not
of geographical exploration but of social and scientific
discovery. For under the influence of war we have formu-
lated a new creed, a declaration of interdependence. We now
realize that we cannot live in this world and ignore the plight
of other nations. For our globe has shrunk in comparative size
as an encompassing network of air lanes has bound all nations
together. And the future will produce other transformations
equally startling in their effect. The advent of television com-
bined with radio will present events of political and cultural
significance to be reviewed by the masses and to influence
their very scope of thought. Men of all nations will intermingle
in the global centers of culture and commerce and exchange
views on pertinent questions of universal concern. We shall
become familiar with their history, their country, and their prob-
lems, and they with ours. Under these conditions how can we
but live in harmony and peace?
Of tremendous importance in this new world will be the re-
P041 Wm WMM
volutionary theories which have been de-
veloped as science advanced under the
impetus of war. Their wider application to
the needs of peace will alter radically our
customs, thought, our very mode of life.
Surpassing metals in strength and du-
rability, plastics will be used for construc-
tion of modern housing, aircraft, and brid-
Medical research will be aided consi-
derably by the electron microscope whose
penetrating rays will magnify the inner
activities of the body, aid in bacteriologi-
cal investigation, and assist man in his
eternal search for health and longevity.
This in coordination with modern medi-
cine, made available to all, will create a
new society, physically and mentally vigo-
rous and free from the fear of disease.
This is the amazing world of the fu-
ture which will present infinite opportuni-
ties for the cultural development of youth.
Individual enterprise will flourish, and the
talent of thousands of statesmen, scien-
tists, and technicians will be utilized in this
post war pattern of reconstruction for
Which We today are preparing ourselves.
Our education has been for peace and We
are ready to assume our responsibility as
architects of this new world.

Never was our library so popular! Scores of
new technical and scientific books and, of
course, some thrillers in fiction are finding
many appreciative readers. Books on army
life, magazines with war pictures, and maps on
which to locate a friend or brother in distant
lands are in demand.
The library staff, under the direction of Miss
Rees, has cooperated with the War Efforts
Committee in collecting and sending several
hundred volumes to the army,purchased or

Architects of a New world
E are the senior class. We are graduating after four years of a liber-
al preparatory education which accented the technical arts. Eager
and ambitious, we quite normally had grandiose plans for the fu-
ture. We sought higher education in the universities of our land.
Then our horizon became clouded by the world crisis and conscription.
America needed her manhood to defend herself against attack. The youth
of the nation must be mobilized. Our plans were disrupted, discarded. Our
hopes of a higher education faded and, it seemed, could never be realized.
And now, what of our plans? The approaching months will find many
of us in the service while others will await their induction. Already scores
have enlisted in the various reserves so that they may receive some addit-
ional education before actually engaging in combat. Assuredly, the major
portion of our education has been delayed and we face the unpleasant
prospect of a disciplined military life.
But shall we become discouraged and permit a pessimistic view to ob-
serve our vision of the future? An emphatic no! Our career in the army
will offer many compensations. The armed forces need many technicians,
and undoubtedly, many of us will be engaged in an activity which will
closely approximate that which we had planned to study. And when vic-
tory is won, there will be a greater job for us, not only to rebuild the rav-
aged nations but to help establish a firm foundation for the delicate struc-
ture of international peace. For victory in war is of little consequence if de-
sign is lacking in that victory. We must educate those oppressor nations in
democracy so that all nations may live in peace. This is the future we face,
and we must be prepared to assume that position of responsibility and lead-

MWILL MA BE SUHPHISED WHEN SHE 5.5156 THIS
ITERATURE in the technical fields has graphically illustrated
the role of technology in the war. In a sense, it is the great-
est Weapon in the world wide struggle. Its diversified appli-
cation to the production of ships, planes, tanks, and guns that
are necessary to attain victory have given inspiration to a host
of revolutionary developments in the sciences. Tomorrow we
shall see the products of this progress in practical use. Already
we have been permitted a flashing glimpse of our postwar
world with its fantastic aids to comfortable and healthful living.
But technology is dynamic and aggressively progressive and
these discoveries and inventions will be surpassed by the devel-
opments of the more distant future.
But what is technolgy? We have witnessed it in action, have
discussed it, but a few have more than the vaguest idea of
what it is. Technology, according to experts in the field, is the
science of industrial arts. It is not a makeshift utilized during a
period of stress but an established and sound body of principles
that have their foundation in a technical education. To say that
a technical education is the study of technical subjects is mis-
leading. It includes all the creative arts. It embraces everything
from architecture to welding. It offers experience in every field
of endeavor with which scientific thought is concerned.
The value of such an educational process is not to be'
measured by the quantity of information acquired, but, rather,
by the flexibility and versatility developed in the student. To
think clearly and logically so that the vast store of technical
knowledge may be used to the greatest advantage to yield the
desired result - this is the essence of technical education, the
foundation of technology.

An ancient science-mathematics-has been
in general use for centuries, during which time it
has steadily progressed. Algebra, spherical and
analytical geometry, and differential calculas
were developed as man's conception of the world
The machine age heralded the construction of
huge buildings, aircraft, autos, and an infinite
number of complex mechanisms. Relatively sim-
ple parts required the use of complicated formulas
in their design. The computation of these prob-
lems involving stress and strain analysis and
electronics were made simpler by our clear perf
ception of the theory of mathematics. Today we
apply this knowledge to war, but the advent of
peace will make available these developments
to the needs of peace.

the chemist is in evidence. For the preparation of

infinite number of conveniences which the lay-
man accepts as a necessary part of his daily life
we may give credit to the chemist.
Since many raw materials are no longer avail-
able, he has been forced to synthesize from our
available resources to produce many amazing
synthetics some of which have proved themselves
superior to the original products.
And the chemist is not blind to the future. He
is constantly striving to devise new substances
and to improve those existing and now used in
the war effort for their wider applications to the
needs of a peacetime economic world. Chemistry
is indeed a science of tremendous utility.

to wood is pattern shop. Here the student applies

Fine Arts - Social Studies
F what use is knowledge of music and art and literature
to the individual who is entering the technical fields? To
T be versed in the fine arts is to have sources of greater
enjoyment in life. For without culture we are shells of men,
incomplete and uninteresting. The fine arts broaden our scope
of thought and enrich our lives though an appreciation of these
finer things. We recognize the beauty in nature and sci-
ence and through these media are able to express ourselves.
Upon the fine arts, music, art, literature, are based the pillars of
character that form each individual's personality.
The fine arts have practical application in every day life
and this war has seen them in active participation as a potent
weapon in offense. Painting has been applied to camouflage,
literature to spread truth and music to build morale. So in war
as in peace the fine arts strive to further civilization.
It is for this cultural as well as material objective that we
are now fighting. To fully understand these purposes we must
have a thorough knowledge of world history and current polit-
ical trends. Then only can we successfully cope with the per-
lexing problems of boundaries and peoples that have arisen
during this war. We will need these vigorous and well informed
youth to lead the way to a better life.
Miss Mullen and Mrs. Swanstrom start many singers
on their way to a professional career in music.
Some of the finest voices in Tilden have been
gathere-d together under one banner, namely.
the Choral Club. Conducted by Mrs. Swanstrom
the boys, this year, have run up a rather enviab-
le record of achievement for themselves. Starting
by creating a sensation with their singing at the
annual choral contest, and receiving a mark of
excellent, they then did a fine job at the Sam
Campbell show given by the P.T.A. One of the
specialties of the group was "Onward Christian
Soldiers", arranged for, and dedicated to the
boys by Mrs. Swanstrorn, herself. The latest enf
gagement successfully concluded was an invitat-
ion to sing at Orchestra Hall. Next to singing with
the Chicago Symphony Orchestra this is the finest
engagement a high school chorus can have. The
boys sang five numbers all of which were grac-

In spite of the fact that the interest in string-
ed instruments has declined in later years our
orchestra boasts some of the finest high school
musicians in the city. Because of the constant
showing of brass dance bands at the theatre
houses, and the brassy, martial music that is
currently played by military bands, the trend that
budding musicians are taking is definitely to
brass. Some high schools have discontinued orch-
estral work entirely, but under Mr, Lineer's guid-
ance a group of students have developed a com-
pact orchestra. Usually the difficulty is trying to
find boys to play the cello and bass viol while
violin players are more in abundance- This years
group finds these troubles absolutely reversed,
the violins being scarce While basses and cello
are more evident.
Some very fine solo work has been done at
past P.T.A. meetings: Howard Swanson and
George Libner have both done fine violin work-
Frank Tachau did a grand job on his violoncello,
while clarinetist Iarnes Anderson, and flutist
George Sebastian both did excellent work on
various occasions. All these boys and other mem-
bers of the group will no doubt in later years de-
velop into fine musicians.

Interest in art has been greatly heightened this year by two new
features of the art program, the study of camouflage and architec-

distortion and concealment of corners, smooth surfaces, and moving
objects was the center of interest. The latter course dealt with the
drawing of geometric models showing the third dimension and its
application to architectural construction.
Practical work in handcraft consisted in the finishing and decorat-
ion of toys, trays, etc. made in the wood shop. These articles made
a colorful exhibit in our library after which they were sent to the

T is the wish of every individual to live life to the fullest. This
does not necessarily mean to succeed in a material or pro-
fessional way, but rather to find satisfaction in association
with our friends and neighbors, to experience the thrill of self
expression, and to adjust our way of life in the paths of service
. Our school life, in and out of classroom, offers us many an
opportunity for such development. From a host of activities a
student may choose the one that appeals to him. Membership in
the Student Council offers the chance to develop the qualities
of leadership so essential in the World of tomorrow. It also pres-
ents the problem of formulating and executing new policies for
the general good. Science clubs, hobby shows, amateur the-
atricals, stimulate initiative. Intramural sports foster the spirit
of comradship and friendly competition. Language clubs en-
courage a broader outlook and an understanding of our neigh-
bor nations. Service as a member of any of the guard organiz-
ations, the Clipping Bureau, the Choral Club, the band, the orch-
estra, the printing staff, requires many hours of faithful service
and gives a sense of responsibility. The sign painter's organiza-
tion, the year book, the newspaper all encourage self expres-
sion and and develop talent.
These qualities are the ones vitally necessary in the world
at war and equally essential in the world at peace.

It is hardly possible to estimate the tremendous
prestige which our Tilden Times has acquired
in the years it has been published, Edited and
printed entirely by students, it is representative
of the students and is their voice in the affairs of
the school-. In this respect it rivals even the Stud-
ent Council for through its facilities every student
may express himself. Various columns such as
"Ice Tilden Sez" and Tech Chatter have become
famous in our Tilden community as expressions
of the student veiwpoint. In each of its pages we
find the interesting and eagerly sought informa-
tion about our athletic teams, social life, and ex-
trafcurricular activities in the school. The Times
boosts band concerts, sports, and various other
student enterprises. Scrap and bond drives in

In a world dominated by speed, one can easily

many of these activities would not have succeed-

of the Times.
Within the past years this newspaper has had
the distinction of being judged "All-American" by
the National Scholastic Press Association and it
has consistantly been given first class honor ra-
ting. We are justly proud of our Tilden Times,
our alle!-Xmerican newspaper.
In recognition of service and ability fine mem-

"Victory Through Service On The Home Front"
is the program theme of the Tilden Parent Teacher
Association, more briefly known as the P.T.A., for
the year of 1944-45. The association has tried to
bring a little nearer the ideal world founded on
the principle of human brotherhood and to keep
the faith bequeathed to this and future genera-
tions by hardy forefathers who hewed America
out of the wilderness and dedicated it to liberty,
justice, happiness, and truth for every human
being. The annual Hobby Show was one of the
year's outstanding events under the capable su-
pervision of Mr. Isbaner. Besides many rare and
interesting exhibits, a variety show, wrestling
matches, films of other lands, and cx concert by
the Tilden band were highlights of the show.

Together with the various other extra-curricu-

by students who are interested in some speci-
alized subject. A few are pictured on these pages,
the Surveyor's, Pan-American, Biology and Ser-
vice clubs. Mathematically inclined students
join the Surveyor's Club, those interested in our
South American neighbors, the Pan-American,
amateur naturalists, the Biology and civic mind'

is open to all students and form a part of the so-

Many interesting subjects are
taken up by the Biology Club under
the direction of Miss Swenson. At
present the attention seems to be
directed toward birds.
The largest organization contributing service to the
school, the guard system, is composed of approximately
four hundred students deployed in five branches. Without
this extensive system our school could not possibly funct-
ion with any degree of its present efficiency. The most ex-
clusive branch, the office aides who must all be honor stud-
ents, escort visitors about the school, carry special bulletins
to classes and handle some of the tremendous volume of
clerical work that is necessary in our school. In the adjust-
ment office, the guards help keep in order efficient records
of each student: in the library they keep our books in order:
in the Lost and Found they return misplaced articles. And
lastly We have the hall guards, the backbone of the system,
who preserve order and discipline in the halls. This is the
guard system, an integral part of our administrative de-

"Why? What can I do you for?"
"Nothing today, thank you. But, seriously, as Ioe Tilden,
you represent the typical senior and we'd like to ask a few
"How does it feel to be graduating?"
"You might think that I'd be overjoyed at the prospect of
leaving, but I'm not. Tilden has been more than a school to me.
During these four years I've studied hard preparing myself for
the future, but it's been a lot of fun, even the tests. I'll miss
the fellows too-"
"Yes, we understand, Ioe. And now what are your plans
for the future?"
"Well I've already enlisted under one of the advanced
training programs and immediately after graduation I'll be in-
ducted. After the war I plan to continue my education and
enter the technical fields. There's going to be a lot of work and
opportunity in the postwar world and I'm going to be ready for
my share. Anything else?"
"That's about all, Ice, and I know all the fellows will be in-
terested. By the way, where did you say you were going?"
"My draft board."

"Yes that's me. I'm going to lunch now. Goodbye!"
"Not so fast, lack. I'll join you. You've been at Tilden one
year now and should have some definite ideas about your
studies and extra-curricular affairs. What do you hope to
achieve at Tilden?"
"It's hard to say right now. There's so many clubs and teams
I'd like to join. My division has elected me to the Student Coun-
cil and I've already been in the Honor Club one semester.
There's a bunch of teams, but I like basketball best of all. I'd
really like to have an athletic letter or one of those sharp
double T's on my sweater."
"You've a lot of ambition, Iack, but seriously, will you have
enough time for all of that?"
"Why of course. I've three years ahead of me."
"Three years. Good luck, lack."

Composed of the elite of the school, the Honor Club is a sym-
bol of outstanding intellectual success. Of the many students who
each semester persistently strive for that "E" average, only six per
cent actually achieve this objective. Effort long and tireless is
necessary and few have the necessary character to see it thru.
Membership in this exclusive organization is the ambition of every
student from the lowly freshman to the mighty senior.
Scholarship is but one of the virtues of club members- To devel-
op character, to serve the school, to train for leadership in extra-
curricular activities are the objectives, the ideals of the Honor Club.
For knowledge unutilized in civic enterprise and in the advancement
of our civilization is useless to the student and to society. These
boys are the future leaders in government, science, and industry-
They must be trained to assume the responsibilty of leadership
in the future whether in a world at war or peace. Now more than
ever we need young men such as these, strong and of high men-

EFORE we can fully utilize our knowledge we must have
the athletic prowess to withstand the ordinary terrific
pace of this modernworld. The body must be simultaneously
developed with the mind to produce a well balanced individual
with the characteristics of endurance, courage, and stamina
needed to meet the demands of life. During a war this is partic-
ularly true. The tempo of modern warfare exerts a tremendous
strain upon the individual which may result in his failure in bat-
tle if he is not physically fit. '
One of the best possible ways a young man can gird him-
self physically for the services is to participate in the regular
gymnastic course given in school. Under this new course en-
tiled "commando training", the students actually and literally
undergo the toughening up exercises designed for the armed
forces to strengthen and develop strong and sound bodies.
Extended to the swimming pool, this program provides the
student with experience in the many intricate and difficult
manuevers which comprise military swimming.
And then we have competitive sports. Interest in this activ-
ity is always high. Many city wide championships have been
won by our many teams-to name a few, wrestling in which we
have been successful fifteen times in seventeen years, track,
football, basketball, swimming and others. Our teams are recog-
nized as formidable opponents in any meet and invariably they
win high honors.
These sports combined with our gymnastic programs form
a definite pattern under which the student receives the physic-
al training needed to make him a better soldier and citizen of

Um 1943 - 44
The Tilden Tech 1943 Football season was considered extreme-
ly successful by the gridiron experts because of the surprisingly
good work done by the players. Even though the Blue Devils did
not win a championship, they showed great promise in developing
into one of the most powerful teams the city of Chicago will ever
see in the seasons to come. The team was centered about nine re-
turning members of Tilden's 1942 City Champs. The Blue Devils
were extremely successful according to the won and lost columns.
They won eight while losing two. Their eight victories were over
Crane 21-O, Lindblom 6'0v DuSab1e 33-0, Kelly 26-0, Englewood 534
7, Gage Park 41-O, Farragut 32-0, and Hammond 13-6. The two set-
backs were issued by Phillips 6-0 and Morgan Park 19-16. This
splendid record can be attributed to the excellent coaching given
to the boys by Coach Harvey and Coach Hicks.
The first game on Tilden's League Roster was that against Du
Sable. tCrane, Lindblom, Hammond and Morgan Park were pre and
post season games.l With shoe cleats sharpened and helmets shin-
ed the Blue Devils gave their followers something to talk about
when a practically new team emerged on top of a 33 to 0 score.
Ed Kriwiel, our snappy left halffback started the scoring by going
around his own left end and jaunting some fifty odd yards to a

holm who kicked three out of the possible tive.
The next game on the list was with the Kelly Trojans whom the
Techsters defeated 26 to 0. During the halves of this game both of
the schools gave entertainment to the fans with brass bands, maj'
orettes and thrilling feats by the cheerleaders. But even all of this
entertainment could not drown out the fact that the Blue Devils were
still rolling along. Even at this early stage of the season it was
known to all that the Blue Devils were still serious crown contend-
ers, despite the fact that the squad was left with only a handful of

the reign of Tilden as public school champs to
halt. It was a hard game to lose, but it was a
well fought game worthwhile watching.
The next team to be bowled over was Engle-
wood- to the tune of 53 to 7 score. Tildenls first
touchdown came within the first minute of play.
It came on the third play with Dunlap going
through tackle for twenty four yards and six
points. In the plays following, Lenny Kocinski
and Mike Swistowicz went over twice. DeLaPaz,
Arnold and Kriwiel each made a tally. Iader-
holm kicked 4 extra points. Englewood's lone

A fairly large crowd watched the Tech
steamroller trample Gage Park. They were beat-
en by a score of 41 to 0. During this game the
spectators witnessed one of the freak plays of
the season. DeBortoli blocked Szymanski's, Gage

juniors with thirteen from a possible thirteen and the seniors
with twelve- In the diving contests, Kachinskas and Iohnson

Coach Warga of the swimming teams predicts a fine future
for these boys.
Leading the swimming teams this year were Stanley Gas-

the championship technique requires long hours of practice.

and Richard Krzmenski, and add a good measure of fine play-
ing and sportsmanship, we have Tilden's Iunior Basketeers. Al-
though they came in fourth in the central section, every game
played was hotly contested. The speedy quintet was always
dashing around the floor, trying for those ever so hard to get
baskets. The juniors first fell victim to Lindblom who ran
roughshod over our boys for a 32 to 23 decision. Their next
attempt proved that all their practice had not been in vain
and Harrison left the court with the score reading Tilden 42:
Harrison 33. Gage Park was next to taste the bitterness or def
feat. Kelly and Farragut upset the plans of the team, with vice
tories of 27 to 22 and 33 to 30 respectively. A 40 to 30 win
over DuSable redeemed our team and balanced a 35 to 24
beating from Philips- To these gallant lads we offer consolat-
icn and hope for a better season.

Looking back over the past season, we see that our Senior

By this we mean the winning of the central section crown.
With a starting team ot George Reed, Norman Smith,
Frank Schlaffer, Iames Mowen, and lack Gallapo Tilden al-
ways managed to keep the ball in the rival's territory. Charles
Fuhrey, Iohn Fleck, and James Dombrowski, who were Feb-

the end of the season when all the scores were added up-
Many were the teams falling to the agile gold and blue

fer who sparked the team on to all its victories was the team
high scorer. He also holds the honor of being chosen as the

One of the more widely known and more highly
touted organizations here at Tilden is the Cheer
Squad. It is a commonly accepted fact that
"Rain or shine, the Cheer Squad screams on,"
and each year finds a new group of boys eagerly
trying to carry on this tradition. Many students
imagine the lite of a cheer leader to be all
"peaches and cream," and they never realize
the long hours of practice, going over cheers time
and time again to insure perfect timing and cor-
rect co-ordination in the group.

From the view of a championship, last year's
baseball team could not be considered successful.
But taking into consideration the fact that this
sport does not receive a great deal of fanfare and
consequently has a smaller turnout than most
of the other sports here at Tilden, the team had
a fairly decent season.
Undoubtedly one of the highlights of last
year was the pitching masterpiece of Art Larson
against Lindblom when he allowed only one hit.
Another bright spot on the Tech baseball parade
was the sparkling playing of "Mooney Schlaffer",

Coach Brinkman's hopes for a championship
this year will rest upon the returning lettermen
of whom leaders are Art Larsen, Frank Schlaff-
er, Dick Leitzen, George Reed, George Zalac,
Bob Sabo, Ed Slabosz, and Pete Yelen. The man
who was chosen from this year's group to cap-
tain this years squad is Dick Leitzen. If the follow'
ing reserves of last year's team, Ioe Lubauy,
Frank Cerven, Fred Witt, Lou Stincic, and Ioe
Verszak, come up to Coach Brinkmans expectat-
ions, the team ought to go places.

The gun sounded and the runners, or harriers
as they are called, were off on a grueling two
mile race. Waddick and Baranski took an early
lead at the start. These tech cindermen maintain-
ed their early lead at the half mile post. But at
the mile the competition began to stiffen and Bari
anski passed up his team mate. Waddick of Til-
den and Pierson of Lane were tied for second
place. These techmen are well trained and spend
many hours after school doing sometimes as
many as fifty laps around the football field in
e on the turn
preparation for the day when they meet all kinds
of competition. The last quarter mile proved to
be the most exciting as Aikens of Tilden, who had
been running in twentieth place, moved up and

Tug - O - War was another new intramural
sport this year, in which fifty divisions took part.
Mr. Hartman predicts a great future for this sport
as even he was surprised at the turnout of boys
who were ready to test their strength against
ohers. The senior championship went to Mr. Moh-
ler's division. The competition in the senior class
was very close and the best team came out the
winner. Miss H. Iohnson's division took the crown
in the junior class. This division was made up
solely of football players and took the title in an
easy fashion. The players were Chuck Weiss,
Ted Sadjak, Gene DeBarto1i, Lou Costello and
Malcolm Slaney. Then came the battle for the
sophomore crown. There were more divisions
taking part in this event than any other. There
were many grunts and groans emitted but when
the championship was at stake Miss Kritzer's div-
ision came home under the wire. The winning
freshman division came from Mr. A. Iung's room.
All the boys who took part in this freshman tourn-
ament showed that in years to come they will be-
come real Tildenites.

Wrestling again this year had a fine turnout
with all eyes set on the championship. Those
who took the crown were Bob Martin, Willie Mar-
tiniak, Manuel Wray, George Kyros, Bob Dwyer,
Gasiorowski and Widmont. Ot these boys four
came from the wrestling team. All these boys
took part in one sport or another. Besides the
wrestlers, Martiniak plays football, Wray is a
cheerleader, and Widmont and Gasiorowski are
swimmers. The winners were awarded armbands
for their effort in this sport.
Another new intramural sport introduced to
Tilden was rifle shooting. Five teams, composed
of regulars from the R.O-T.C. rifle team competed.
The course of firing lasted four weeks. The com-
petition was very keen and the boys were trying
for the high honors in this marksmanship test.
Winning team members each received a shield
showing their ability. The winners were as foll-
ows: Frandsen, captain of the team Damico, Klir,
Gordon, Feldhoif, and Pavilonis.

HE nation which values its freedom must always be prepar-
ed to defend itself. For there are forces at work in the world
and in our nation which would deprive us of our fundamen-
tal liberties and destroy the ideals of democracy that we have
established. And so today the great strength of our nation has
again been dedicated to the elimination of these oppressive for-
ces. From homes over all of the land, our youth have been re-
cruited for the armed forces. They are professional men, white
collar workers, students, and the ordinary men in the street. In
all theatres of war these boys have displayed the discipline and
military resourcefullness that have brought amazing victories
and the day of peace nearer.
Democracy, then, has not failed. It has fulfilled its obliga-
tions to youth and provided them with ample opportunity to pre-
pare for their duties as citizens. At school, basic military train-
ing has long been an integral part of our program. Instruction
in drill, military theory, and strategy has been given to thous-
ands of our students. The quality of these cadets and their offi-
cers is unsurpassed. And they have made our R.O.T.C. unit the
finest in the Sixth Corps area.
Even during peace many of our students received such
training, not only in preparation for war but rather for their
duties as citizens in a free nation. Even now this is their ultimate

IDELY recognized for the excellence of its
military training, the Tilden R. O. T. C-
unit boasts a list of achievements almost
unequaled for prep schools in the entire nation.
Since 1935 the picked platoon has competed
with other units annually and has consistently
been chosen the finest in the city. Our cadet of-
ficers regularly are selected for the Codet Corps
Staff while the entire unit has placed first during
six occasions in the annual Federal Inspection.
Not resting on these laurels, the unit this year
has attained a high in military excellence. Be-
cause their honored instructor Sgt. Moore is re-
tiring from the service, the officers and men have
had a greater incentive to d o their best. Co-oper-
ation between every cadet, non-com, and officer
has yielded results, and combined with Sgt.
Moore's vigorous leadership, the picked platoon
