Text from Pages 1 - 104 of the 1946 volume:

{Introduction On the wall in every room in our beloved Tolleston High School, there hangs a clock. Its hands have slowly ticked away the minutes of four years of high school life for one hundred twenty-six graduating seniors. These years, however, have been full ones, filled to the brim with studies, R O.T.C., athletics, clubs, cokes at the Dari, dates, and dances. How often in the past four years have the seniors looked at the clock and watched its hands move toward four o'clock when after-school activities began! Now it is really “four o'clock for our seniors, and the long awaited time has come for them to leave high school for good. At this time, many of them wish the hands on the clock could be turned back so they could be freshmen again. Although this cannot be done in reality; in memory, through the camera's eye and an album, it is possible to relive those four years of high school life. Turning back the clock to the beginning of the school year on a Tuesday morning in September, we hear the ringing of the 8:40 bell heralding the beginning of the new school year. The vacation-silenced halls re-echo the familiar sounds and voices for a few short minutes, and then all settles down to the familiar pattern of school.These loyal helpers, like the second hand ol a clock, move silently and un- obtrusively to make possible our school needs and wantp.

The members of the Student Council are representatives from the freshmen, sophomore, junior, and senior classes. Two of the three members from each class are elected by their respective classes. The third member is chosen by the class sponsors. Before a student sponsored activity can be given, the student organization must obtain the permission of the Student Council. The Council also conducts the annual class and club elec- tions. which are held in the spring. For some time now the Council has felt the need for more school activities sponsored by all the school organizations and the faculty. During the past year, the main project of the Student Council was maintaining and keep- ing up to date the Servicemen's Honor Roll, a plaque which contains the names of Tolleston students who are serving, or have served, in the armed forces.THERSA WEHR English and Latin As the 8:40 bell ceases ringing on a Tuesday morning in Sep- tember. we see, seated at their ANN SHIRLEY GRAY English and Pioneer desks, the teachers who watch and guide the students through their high school years.

With concentration on perfection in marching at parades and football games, they won the compliments of a noted band director. For the band, the highlight of the year was the annual spring concert held in the Memorial Auditor- ium on April 5. The wide variety of selections was enjoyed by a capacity audience Another major event occurred when the band, under Mr. Schroeder's able direction, gave two concerts in DeKalb, Illinois. This year some of the members of the band went to Valparaiso, where they participated in a state-wide contest, entering into the ensemble and solo groups.OFFICERS Katherine Ell, Secretary-Treasurer, Girls’ Glee Club; Angeline Mono to ro, Secretary-Treasurer.

The able planning of sec- ond year students and Miss Wehr made their initiation and Christ- mas party very suc- cessful. FIRST AND SECOND YEAR LATIN CLASSES For the first time in sev- eral years, the Latin Club was able to spend a few days at the Shades Park in south- ern Indiana. The eight- een members from the first and second year groups spent a very enjoyable week-end in dancing, hiking, horse- back, and bicycle riding.OFFICERS President .............

Miss Wehr At the beginning of the year the Latin Club in- itiates dressed them- selves in sheets, which represented the Roman toga, and prepared themselves for a trip through Hades. The Latin Club social committee made excit- ing preparations for the trip to the Shades near Turkey Run.

Each first year student had to go through the school day dressed in bath towel. T-shirt, bobbysox, bright sash, and gym shoes. For the enjoyment of the Spanish Club the second year group planned such activities as the initiation - Hallo- ween party. Christmas party, outings at the Dunes State Park, and a day at Mrs. Wendt's cottage at Flint Lake. Michigan.OFFICERS President ........... Angelo Canales Vice-President ...........

OTYOKWAS Through the guidance of the Y W C A the girls had lectures, dances, hikes, and parties, which have brought them into con- tact with Girl Reserve organizations through- out the city.At the beginning of the year a group of junior- senior girls felt a need for a girls' club where they could discuss problems common to all girls. The Girls' Club was therefore duly organized. One of the major events of the year in which the Girls' Club has participated was the Girls' Conference. The girls have also had dances, parties, and lectures by professional people on manners, fashions, glamour, and hygiene.T-SQUARE (Camera Club) First Row: Betty Bobik, Leonelda Montorsi.

The future, unlike the past, is still to be lived. Some of our seniors will enter the business world; others will pursue profes- sions, and still others will make marriage a career. Whatever the choice may be, we extend our hands and wish all kinds of success to these, our seniors. If, perhaps, in that unknown future, you think of us at Tolleston, open again this book and let us take you back through memory with a camera and an album to freshmen days and a Tuesday morning in September, when we hear the ring- ing of the —
