TILDEN TECHNICAL HIGH SCHOOL, 4747 SOUTH UNION AVENUE
c H 1 C A G o
At the halfway mark of the 20th cen
tury, we, the class of 1950, survey the past and
view the future with renewed hope of the promise
of man's progress for a better and more enlighten-
ed world. Our foundations, our beginnings are
in the shadows of the past, from which we have
inherited much opportunity to equip ourselves for
the future. We understand our responsibility to
make the most of our heritage and to use it to
build a better world.
Tilden offers excellent opportunities
to students who wish to prepare for college or
strive for success in a chosen vocation. Clubs and
organizations work in perfect harmony for the
promotion of high scholastic standards and demo-
cratic equality. Through these organizations stu-
dents plan and present assemblies durinq the
school year hiah-lighting student achievements of
many kinds. The role played by clubs is indeed
of great importance because it installs the spirit
of democracy in members.
Students belonging to championship
athletic teams or taking part in the intramural pro-
gram develop strong, healthy bodies, keen mental-
ity and the teamwork urgently needed to make
world urrity a reality.
Academic courses are generalized:
during four years at Tilden a student comes in
contact with many phases of science, mathematics,
literature, art, music and social studies which offer
him an excellent opportunity to make a wise
choice of his vocation.
We now eagerly face the horizon of
the future, poised, ready to take our place there.
At Tilden our preparation has been well-planned
and carried out. We advance hopefully with a
keen desire to participate and contribute our skills
and services to build permanently a future that
will be peaceful, democratic, useful, and happy . . .
a future worthy to be preserved for those who

As your sojourn at Tilden draws
to a close, we, your faculty friends, would
like to wish you continued success and hap-
piness in whatever new fields of endeavor
you may decide to undertake.
During the years that you have
spent here at Tilden, you have had many
varied experiences that have changed and
matured you. You have formed many close,
never-to-be-forgotten ties of friendship. We
are certain that these experiences have been
wholesome and have resulted in your intel-
lectual, moral, and spiritual development.
We know that we have not pre-
pared you for all the things that may hap-
pen to you in this complex and often-times
baffling world, but we hope that we have
helped you to build those firm foundations
necessary to meet the challenge of the future
and have provided you with incentives that
will make you vitally concerned with your
own growth. We hope that you will continue
to develop physically, morally, socially, and
intellectually into better personalities striving
for a better world.

niere to Mr. Lakemacher
while Mrs. Lakemacher
looks on approvingly.
Mr. Robert E. Lakemacher, principal of Tilden since February
1945, was transferred to the principalship of Schurz High School on February
While at Tilden Mr. Lakemacher was particularly interested
in encouraging scholarship and to further this introduced the Principal's and
Sponsor's Honor Lists. In keeping with his educational philosophy that boys
in a technical school should be acquainted with the fine arts, well equipped
music and band rooms were set up at Tilden.
Mr. Lakemacher consistently worked for closer cooperation be-
tween Tilden and the community. One method was by setting up the machinery
providing student speakers and musicians for community organizations. In
his relations with Tilden students Mr. Lakemacher showed a sympathetic un-
derstanding of their problems. In his relations with Tilden teachers he showed
a keen appreciation of their services.

Sponsors are kept busy bringing the classes together as a unit
instead of in separate divisions. Class meetings are held regularly to inform
and guide students. They give information to pupils as to electives that may
be chosen and work out plans for those going to college. They assist seniors
in making plans for Commencement exercises and are a source of information
and help to every Tildenite.

One of Tilden's outstanding organizations is the Parent
Teachers Association. This group of parents and teachers meets the
second Wednesday of each month to carry on constructive work tor
better parenthood, better homes, better schools and better communi-
ties. Tilden's Parent Teacher Association is a fairly young branch
of the state and national P. T. A. It was founded by Miss Eleanor
Murphy a former English teacher at Tilden Technical High School
in 1993. Students participate in programs and appreciate the work
of the organization and enjoy many of the conveniences it has made
possible. Several projects for raising funds to carry on worthwhile
programs are in progress each year. The Parent education classes
are our main interest at present. Our General theme is "Growing
With Our Chi1dren." Our aim is "Toward Closer Family Relations".

Mr. Post consults with a veteran while Miss
Mooney types out a student's credits.
Three high school Veterans' Centers were
opened by the Chicago Board of Education at the close
of World War II in order to give students who had left
school to join the Armed Forces an opportunity to con-
tinue their education. Tilden is the only high school on
the South Side having a Veterans' Center.
The veterans' program is an individualized, accelerated program
where the veteran works as fast as he can absorb the prescribed material. To
establish credit in a subject the veteran is required to take a test given by the
Veterans' Testing Service of the Chicago City Iunior College. The final grade
received is the average of the teacher's estimate and the test score.
Of 1657 Chicago south siders who have returned as veterans to
our Center, 1035 have completed their courses and have gone on to college or

The halls of Tilden reverberate with many different sounds during
the day. One hears the various noises made by the machines in our well-
equipped shops on the ground floor. Upon reaching the first floor, the com-
mands of the R.O.T.C. platoon officers ring out while a radio blasts away in
the radio shop.
The smooth hum of the presses strike the ear as our Tech Times
goes to press. Voices raised in harmony float through the air as the freshman
music classes sing. The sounds reach a Crescendo as the gym is approached.
The roar of the gym classes predominate on the third floor as the boys go
through their workouts, while in the class rooms off of the long corridors stu-
dents voice their thoughts in debate.
Throughout our building various signs and sounds of activities
signify the harmony prevalent when fellows work together and gain a feeling
of achievement in a job well done.

hearts. As we advanced in years, school events, sport activities and assemblies
predominated. Those trips down-state to see our basketball team in the Sweet
Sixteen were thrilling. As seniors our big moment came . . . prom night . . . the

will always be outstanding and cherished.

In February 1947 Trlden became the
center of our l1ves for the next four years At that
trme we stood rn awe and adrmred the semors who
were makmq preparatrons for the1r graduatron Be
fore we began to reahze how much hrgh school lxfe
begm preparatrons for our graduatxon
Dunng those four years we worked
hard to achreve the goal that was soon to be ours
To those of us who mtend to carry on therr educauon
thrs goal IS just a steppmg stone To others rt wrll
mean the slgn post on the road of hte for 1t wlll be
necessary to decrde what drrectron they are to take
Whatever the cho1ce wlll be let us hope
that as members of the Tllden Alumnl m the adult
world where we wlll serve we shall mcrease the
prestlge of our Alma Mater
meant to us, it was Ianuary, 1951, and time for us to
emoriea . . .
As we, the graduating seniors, leave Tilden, we take with us
memories to be treasured for the rest of our lives. Some of these memories are
pleasant ones . . . others are sad.
A few of the pleasant memories include the completion of our
first shop project . . . the first experiment that we completed in physics . . . the
first letter we received for our services rendered to the school . . . the anxiety
experienced while preparing for our "prom' '... and our graduation.
Poignant memories are the lecture we received from a teacher
because we stepped out of line . . . the realization that we were no longer
children and would have to rely on ourselves to get ahead in life.
As long as there are members of our class to get together and
reminisce, these memories and others like them will be uppermost in our

The means by which all students at
Tilden are represented is the Student Council. This
council is made up of one representative from each
division chosen for the purpose of fulfilling the needs
and requests of the students. The objective of the
Student Council is to make improvements throughout
the school for the good of all pupils.
The election of officers for the Student
Council is an annual affair in which every student
participates. They are held to elect a president, vice-
president, secretary, and treasurer. Candidates for
office place campaign posters throughout the school,
make speeches and pledge themselves to truly rep-
resent the student body.
One of the many undertakings of the
Student Council was the Care Drive for which a col-
lection was made for the underprivileged families in
Europe. Others were the posting of fire drill codes
throughout the building, the issuing of The Tech
Pilot and The Pep Book to Tilden students, the Share
Drive and Guest Day. Another was the annual deco-
ration and contribution of the Christmas tree to a
charitable institution. This year the Erie Neighbor-
House received the tree.

Every Tildenite strives arduously to achieve the high standards
required for membership in the Honor Club. This orgcmization not only gives
recognition to deserving students but also offers them opportunities to take
an active part in school affairs. The candidates for membership in the Honor
Club are the students whose names appear on the Principal's and Sponsor's
Honor Lists at the end of each semester. A student rating the Sponsor's list
must have at least a grade of Excellent in each subject and in order to qualify
for the Principal's list a Superior average is required. The three elected officers
are upperclassmen, the President and Vice-President being Seniors and the
Secretary-Treasurer being a Iunior.
Membership in the Honor Club is considered one of the greatest
honors that a Techman may receive. This goal is within the reach of everyone.
By putting forth faithful effort, 175 students have attained membership in the
Honor Club this year.

The Clippings Bureau is a valuable news
service for Tildenites. This organization has a staff of
more than 120 students who bring to the Bureau over a
hundred editions of twenty-five different newspapers. They
cut out news about Tilden and pupils attending Tilden.
These clippings are posted on a bulletin board for all to
read. Duplicates are sent to students in the news to save
and put in their scrap books, so that they may look back
on accomplishments of their high-school days. The fact
that boys are notified when recognition is given for worth-
while achievements inspires them to strive for greater

As a new school term began in September, Til-
den's yearbook staff promptly began work on our annual, The
Craftsman. Planning the cover, obtaining ads, selecting a
theme, taking pictures, and checking identifications were but
a few problems this group of young men had to solve.
Writeups were assigned, and many hours of work
went into the planning and making of the dummy. The artists
contributed much of their free time to the drawirgs and car-
toons in our book. Staff members proudly visualized the re-
ward of their labors.
By Iune an air of expectancy surrounded our
school and with humility and eagerness we presented our
earnest and sincere efforts toward a better understanding of
ourselves, our fellow classmates, the student body and faculty.

A goal which all Techmen strive to attain is member-
ship in the National Honor Society, an honor that is bestowed on a
small percentage of seniors and juniors each semester. To be eligi-
ble for membership in the Tilden Chapter of this nation-wide organi-
zation, one must be an honor student and have participated in extra-
curricular activities. Approval by every member of the faculty is
The initiation ceremony is traditional at Tilden, an event
which serves as an inspiration for lower classmen who want to be
worthy of the same honor when they become seniors. Members ex-
plain the aims and purposes of the Society and the Emblem which
every member cherishes, the guiding light of knowledge emblazoned
on the keystone of society. The four cardinal requisites are also
explained, namely: character, scholarship, leadership, and service.
Before the principal presents the membership cards, all of the new
members hold lighted candles and recite the pledge of loyalty sim-
ultaneously. This is indeed a solemn and impressive part of the
Besides possessing a membership card and gold pin,
these leaders of the future wear gold tassels and are presented with
certificates at graduation.

"Ten-shun!" calls the Commander and the cadets snap to atten-
tion with a click of the heels. "Right face! Forward march!" Off they go.
marching along smartly. Tilden's Reserve Officer's Training Corps is known
for its precision and snap. Under the able supervision of the Military Instruc-
tors, and under the leadership of cadet officers, members of our R.O.T.C. unit
acquire training which will make them better citizens of the United States. The
cadets leam leadership, courtesy and discipline along with their drill. They
also leam the operation of all our modern military weapons. and are required
to assemble and disassemble rifles, Carbines, and pistols. Every Thursday
and Friday the cadets may be seen walking proudly through the halls, their
shoes and the brass on their uniforms shined to perfection.
Look at that Picked Platoon! It is one of the finest in the city. In
the 1949-50 competition they placed third in a very close contest between
platoons of all the R.O.T.C. units in Chicago. Tilden's Picked Platoon has placed
first, second, or third every year. Tilden's R.O.T.C. also has a Rifle Team for
those sharpshooting cadets who are interested.
On the novelty side, the R.O.T.C. has the Officer's Eccentric Drill
Team. More commonly known as the "Monkey Team" or "Monks", they do
everything from spinning rifles to performing all types of unusual drill. They
even appeared on television!
Tilden's R.O.T.C. Drum and Bugle Corps participates in many
activities and parades. With the roll of drums and the blare of bugles the
D. 6' B. Corps furnishes music for almost any exhibition.
The purpose of the R.O.T.C. is not to develop soldiers. Its purpose
is to develop good citizens.

Tilden is a champion in every field including
that of music. Are you interested in singing with fellow
students? If you are, join the Tilden Chorus. Participa-
tion is barred to no one who is interested. Seniors sing
with the Senior Chorus. The Iunior Chorus is open to all
sophomores: the Freshmen Chorus is open to all freshmen.
As one approaches our Choral Room, one
may hear tunes being sung, hummed, or whistled by the
Tilden Chorus. Here they put in the many hours of prac-
tice necessary to produce beautiful melody.
Miss Mullen and her student pianists
Verkade and Carchecli.
The members of the Chorus perform at as-
semblies throughout the school year. They take part in
entertaining at P. T. A. programs and Open House. They
also gave a concert in the early part of May called "Nite
of Note". Their favorite song is "Cool Water".
With an eye to the future, Chorus welcomes
new members in the hope that music, well-sung, and real-
ly appreciated will continue to give pleasure to Tilden's

When Ioe Tilden enters the building before eight
o'clock and until he leaves it, which may be anytime from two
forty-five to six o'clock, he embarks on another day of scholastic
learning with its rigid program schedule to follow and some
activities mixed in to make school life more pleasant.
Here he associates with his buddies and makes plans
for spending the next free hours or days. Many lasting friendships
have been started at Tilden and continue through the years.
After school, he may utilize his time preparing for
the next day or out with the fellows, but when he awakens the next
morning, he begins anew a systematic, yet diversified, day at

The 1949 Blue Devils were as successful as Coaches Harvey and
Hicks could possibly hope. Beginning with a tough C.V.S. team for a practice
game, they scored a 21-20 victory, thanks to Henry Marbach's educated toe
which made such a fine showing throughout the year.
In the first league game, Gage Park was trounced 39-B. Next
came Kelly, an easy foe, taken 38-0. The team was making strong bids for the
Prep Bowl. DuSable also offered little opposition, bowing to defeat 39-0. The
march of the Blue Devils had started. The squad was really making gains as
the season sped. Englewood lost 41-O. Tilden was pledged to defeat Lindblom,
the defending Public Champions, and to take vengeance for last year's loss.
They fulfilled their pledge, scoring a 31-6 victory against Lindblom. At the
close of the season Farragut tumbled to a 56-13 defeat. This entitled Phillips
and Tilden to share honors in the Central Section.
Tilden played Lane as a section play-off game, and handed them
a 27-19 defeat. This victory brought our team to Soldiers' Field where power-
ful Schurz gave us our first taste of defeat, outscoring us 19-6.
The team consisted of splendid backs: Co-captain lohn Bartkiewicz
thrilled the crowd with his great running and pass-catching ability. Fullback
Frank Sabatini led the team in scoring, and picked up yardage every time he
took the ball. Left Half Ray Coleman did most of the team's punting and played
a great game defensively. Right Half Tom Cerceo was a good runner and a

During the past season the
Tilden Tech Senior Basketball Team held
an overwhelming record of victories. Four
of these contests were accounted for at
the Centralia Tournament. A strong Tilden
team went downstate determined to take
the tournament and that was just what
they did. Tilden sparked by Kerr with
teamwork oi Grundberg, De Ceault and
Co-captains Bandemier and Matkovich
brushed aside opponents with ease. Dur-
ing this tournament, Iohn Kerr put his
name into the record books by scoring
103 points in four games for a new tour-
Clitt DeCeault and Bill Bandemier, Tildens lirst string
guards, sparked the team to the city championship.

in the Englewood Game.
Tilden's Basketball team was recognized by all schools as
one of the best in the state. As the City League began Tilden met up
with Kelly and had no trouble beating them. Other schools Tilden
ousted were Dunbar, Farragut, Englewood, and Du Sable. In the mean-
time Ti1den's team was greatly weakened by February graduation, as
team mates saw Kerr and Grundberg graduate, while Matkovich be-
came ineligible. But this did not stop our team for filling their positions
ably were Kehoe, Thullen, Lumsargis, and Herkle.
They went on to tie Central Section and entered the play-
offs. In the first victory they defeated Von Steuben. Soon after, the
quarter-finals came in which they met Schurz and eliminated them.
Senn became the third victim of the Blue Devils in the playoffs. Then
came the finals, when they were opposed by a strong Vocational squad
which they brushed aside to reclaim the city title. By doing so they
represented Chicago in the Illinois Sweet Sixteen Tournament.

If we total the athletic ability of five boys, namely: Forwards
Leo Strock and Len Rogozinski, Center Bill Palka and Guards Bob Lyman and
Frank Chico, we have Tilden Tech's Iunior Basketball Team. They won five
out of nine league games.
Losing their first three games to Kelly, Dunbar and Farragut got
them off to a shaky start, but they put fine play and sportsmanship together
and the team started to move. Trouncing Englewood, DuSable, and Phillips,
the Gold and Blue Five balanced up their record.

and finished their season by out-scoring Harrison and Gage Park, giving
Tilden a record of five wins and tour losses. After ending league play, the
Techmen engaged Waller in the City League Playoffs, which they lost by a
score of 47 to 46.
Coach Salario is looking for an even better record next season.
With some outstanding players returning like Palka, Chico, Warner, Kominsky,
Galey, Banovic, and many new prospects, the hope for next season is to be a
