TOLLESTON HIGH SCHOOL
IS DEDICATED TO' THE MEMORY
THE FOUNDER OF OUR
We know the deepest sadness,
With remorse our hearts are hlledg
There's an empty sort of loneliness,
For a voice we know is stilled.
The laughing children how their heads,
Their throats are choked with grief,
The lonely future dawns with dread,
For we have lost our Chief.
Though very brief his earthly stay,
His plan has brought sueeessj
In work, in study, and in play,
The child knows happiness.
But as we look again through tears,
In every desk, hook, room, and chair,
His work goes on-new hope appears-
As though he still were there.
The God of life has turned a pagej
We must endure the hurtj
We'll make your plan live through each age,
Our greatest teacher-William Wirt.

A book of this kind expresses certain ideals which are the fundamental
bases of the school whose activities it is recording. There can be no doubt
that the real SPIRIT OF TOLLESTON SCHOOL is the foundation for all
permanent achievement, whether of character, of distinction, or of brick and
stone. This PIONEER OF 1938 attempts to illustrate and to reveal the true
SPIRIT OF TOLLESTON.
What is this SPIRIT? It induces wild eyes and thumping hearts to
scream, "Win for Tolleston!" It arouses genuine enthusiasm and sincerity
by which our school organizations are founded. It causes our community,
our faculty, and our students to cling together and support our numerous
activities. But what is this spirit? The true SPIRIT OF TOLLESTON is
that quality within each of us which urges us to be true to ourselves and
We are proud of this SPIRIT and thankful that it does exist. It can be
measured only by the mental attitude by which we undertake our activities.
We have only to turn the pages of the history of the development of
Tolleston School to tell us the manner in which this true SPIRIT has trans-
formed our idealistic dreams to attained realities.
Long after our individual achievements have become dust covered
memories, the SPIRIT OF TOLLESTON will prevail. Let us seek to be
worthy bearers of the task which is so important to the future of this
We feel that -it is altogether fitting and right that the PIONEER OF 1938
embody as its ideal THE SPIRIT OF TOLLESTON.

nd now, we present our one hundred and three graduates amid smiles
and tears. There are smiles of pride for their achievements, and there are tCa1'S
of regret at their leaving their dear Alma Mater.
Some will win fame and fortune, we knowg but whether they are known
or unknown, sung or unsung, they are 1 God bless them 1
A lingering glance-a heavy sigh-
Then silence creeps from wall to wall,
Where in the happy days gone by,
Gay laughter filled the hall.
No more the hurried, scujling feet,
The scratching pens are mute,'
No student stirs in any seat,
No chatter nor dispute.
An empty echo - faltering, weak,
Uf hollow farewells hurled,
As grave-eyed seniors leave to seek
Their place out in the world.
These school days we cannot forget,
As memory weaves its spell j
And so we say with deep regret,
Oh, molder of our lives - farewell !

The Tolleston gridiron machine that took part in the pigskin parade of 1937 did not
function as well as was expected during the football campaign. During the season, which
proved to be a disastrous one, the Raiders won one game, tied one, and lost.six.
The Blue Raiders of '37 sallied forth into the gridiron wars under the coaching of
Coach V. T. McGrath, who had replaced Coach E. I. Devitt, as 'head football mentor of
the Tolleston football squad.
In the season's opener, Tolleston played the Whiting Oilers. The inability to stop the
much heavier Oilers was the chief cause of the 33-6 defeat suifered by the Raiders. Tolles-
ton's only score was produced by Andy Wasil, who intercepted an enemy fumble in midair
and dashed 35 yards to a touchdown.
Catholic Central was next on Tolleston's list. During the first half, both teams battled
on even terms, however, at the beginning of the second half, Central took advantage of a
Tolleston fumble and made a touchdown which was the only score of the afternoon. And
so, the Foreign Legion of Catholic Central defeated the Blue Raiders by a score of 6-0.
In the first and only game against one of the home opponents, Tolleston played the
Emerson Norsemen. The Norsemen proved a hard nut for the Raiders to crack, and they
handed Tolleston a 26-0 defeat. At times Tolleston's forward wall of Valentine, Wallace,
Ryan, McConnachie, Kaenrath, Schmidt, and Karski battled the Norsemen to a standstill.
Following Emerson, Tolleston met the Valparaiso Vikings. For four quarters the
teams battled without a score. The Raiders at one time had the ball on the five yard line,
and the combined power of Semokaitis, Wasil, Sebben, Exl, and Grennis could not produce
a score. This game ended in a 0-0 tie.
On a very muddy Held on October 20, the Raiders met the Crown Point Bulldogs. On
the third play of the game Frank Exl dashed 65 yards to a ftouchdowng however, the
ofhcials ruled that Tolleston was off side and the play was called back. Ed Valentine took
a pass from Hubert Reid and with a clear field ahead and a sure touchdown, Valentine
slipped in the mud and another chance for a score was stopped. The Bulldogs managed to
score a touchdown and this was the only score of the game. The Bulldogs triumphed over
the Blue Raiders by a score of 7-0.
Tolleston registered its only victory over the Griflith Panthers by a score of 14-0. Aldo
Sebben, Raider fullback, intercepted a Panther pass and dashed 30 yards to a touchdown.
Andy'Wasil converted-the extra point. In the third quarter, Vince Grennis scored again
for the Raiders and Wasil converted the extra point again. This gave the Raiders a 14-0
The Raiders ended its season against I-lobart's Brickies. The Brickies proved too tough
for the Raiders, and they gave Tolleston a 26-7 lacing. Andy Wasil produced the only
Tolleston score on a brilliant 55 yard dash for a season.
And so when the Raiders put away their moleskins and helmets, they had rung up
a record of one victory, one tie, and six defeats. fHere's wishing better luck than this
for the 1938 gridiron heroes of Tolleston.,

Under the leadership of Iohn Bartos, the Blue Raiders
smashed through one of its most successful seasons ever
After climbing out of the season with a majority of
wins, the Raiders made a gallant attempt to gain fame in
the Sectionals. They beat Portage. but lost to Lew Wallace
by a one point margin. The game against Wallace made
history for Tolleston because it was the first attempt of
the Raiders to upset any major high school in Gary.
The inspiring work of the seniors on the team will be
remembered long after they have left. The senior losses
will be Iohn Bartos, Ira Aubuchon, Bill Schmidt, Iohn
Wallace, Ed Karski, Ed Valentine, and Tony Lazar.
Tolleston 34 vs. Calumet Township 15
The players, hoping to fill these vacancies next season,
are Bill Grennis, Merle Hodge, Andy Wasil, Lincoln
Harris, Frank Ryan, George Mussie, Frank Arden, Max
Hirsch, George Papush, and Troy Fisher.
The second string of men brought Tolleston in the
limelight by winning all but a few games.
A great deal of credit goes to Chester Iamski and Abner
Gile, the student managers, in helping to keep the players
in perfect shape throughout the season.

Tolleston's blue-clad warriors of the cinderpath churned
to fame during the track season of '37. The mercury footed
captain, Andy Wasil, was Tolleston's leading man in
bringing home the bacon.
The season was fairly successful. and the Raiders en-
The Golden Gloves, a major event of the "Steel City",
had several contenders from Tolleston School. The four
glove swinging slayers entered from Tolleston were Ed
Holodick, Earl Iudge, Emmanuel Mokol, and Louis
With a string of bad luck 'following him in the ring,
Louis lost his first fight, although he fought like a Trojan.
Emmanuel slugged his way through his first opponent
and lost the decision in his second bout.

tered several major meets. They cinched the Little Four
Track Meet, and this enlightened their tense, hopeful
Tolleston is again looking forward to another success-
ful year with several enticing promises in point earners.
Earl was more fortunate. He battled his way into the
finals and lost this fight by a technical knock out.
Ed, a little more scientific in fighting, gave his op-
ponents enough punishment to stride through to a grand
victory. Eddie kept on training and joined the Michigan
City Golden Gloves. He won his first fight but met a
defeat in his second battle.
With the backing of all the boys who sold tickets, the
Athletic Fund was increased by the Golden Gloves event.

In the whirl of the Tolleston Merry-Go-Round, the girls' athletic department has a
definite and useful position. It has always been an important factor in the girls' school
life, and it grows with every year, keeping pace with the speed of our Merry-Go-Round of
A main cog in the girls' athletic activity is the G. A. A. The sports, hockey, tennis,
baseball, and track, are organized annually by the G. A. A., and every girl making these
teams becomes a member of the organization. The G. A. A. promotes greater physical
skill in the girls' competition between. the four classes and other schools.
The most popular game on the girls' calendar this year proved to be Captainball.
Captainball is a favorite sport among the girls because it is simple, it is fun, and yet it
requires a certain amount of skill. In the tournaments held between Tolleston class
teams, the Iuniors did well in gallantly taking over thetitle of "champions". In the inter-
school competition, Tolleston girls lost only two of twelve games played.
The girls' basketball season was greeted with joyous acclamation. Before our class
teams had determined the champs, we met Horace Mann in eager fray. However, the
Horace Mann girls did not dampen our enthusiasm by walking off with most of the
honors. The Iuniors and Seniors tied for championship in the enter-class games.
Spring came bouncing over the lea, and so the Tolleston G. A. A. girls tossed the
volleyball over the net and back again with all the vim, vigor, and vitality spring breezes
can entice. Tennis, baseball, and handball also had a place in the spring schedule.
Pop! Crack! Bang! With the sound of bursting balloons in their ears, a lively group
of students found merriment at the G. A. A. dance on February 26. Sixty couples enjoyed
dancing to the music of Mickey Simms' orchestra.
The banquet was a. gala affair as usual with all members thoroughly enjoying them-
selves. At this time, pins, letters, and awards were given, oflicers for the coming year were
announced, and the outstanding girl athlete was named.
The oliicers of the club this year are Rose Thrall, president, Mary Hortyk, vice presi-
dent, and Dorothy Dembicki, secretary-treasurer.
The guiding power behind all this is our instructor, Miss Marcia Smith. She was the
organizer of the G. A. A., and her intimate talks .to the girls and her personal interest
in the sports win for her the admiration and liking of her classes.

We turned to the stars for a revelation of the future
of the class of 1938. But how could we get the stars to
reveal?--that was our perplexing question. We asked a
renowned and acknowledged prognosticator, Professor
Bohn, for a solution. We easily distinguished worried traits
as he squirmed under the ordeal, for this was the first
time that his mental facilities could not dig up an answer
in the field of astrology. Professor Bohn made a quick
blushing exit to his laboratory, delaying the answer with
an excuse that book rental payers generally use. Soon he
was buried under a stack of reference books.
As the sun sank below the horizon, Professor Bohn
went searching for a light, with his mind in a fog over
the interrogatory. How can we see the stars without a
telescope? Without due thought, Professor Bohn's finger
slipped in the bulbless socket, and he received a body-
racking electric shock. Right then and there Professor
Bohn uncovered a phenomenon, for when he came in
contact with the electric shock, he saw stars. We then
placed Professor Bohn in a blanket of secrecy while he
labored on the intricate device.
With shades pulled and doors securely nailed shut, he
unveiled the contraption. There was a little juhickey
which regulated the volts which varied from two hundred
to two thousand volts. The more volts used, the more
stars you see. We named the weird looking machine the
By thinking of a certain person and placing your
finger in a specially constructed socket, the stars will re-
veal the fortune of the person. For certain people it re-
quired two thousand volts to get an accurate account of
For those who want more information on the "Bohn-
electro Forecaster", just tear off a big toenail from the
nearest neighbor, or reasonable facsimile, enclose a self
addressed envelope, and we will send a recording of Pro-
fessor Bohn's explanation of the technical details.
NOTE: For those who are doubting Toms, place your
finger in an electric socket and' see if you do not see stars.
Those who are in the two hundred volt group, accord-
ing to Professor Bohn's tabulations, will now be revealed.

league star, will be baseball umpire of a kitten ball league.

but the undaunted Professor Bohn remedied the situation
by turning on six hundred volts.

to keep the home Gres burning.
Frank Exl, Little Napoleon, will open a knitting shop
