At the beginning of each year, approximately one hundred and
sixty eager young boys and girls stand awkwardly before a
massive treasure chest, Tolleston High School, which contains
countless jewels of priceless values. Wondrous as it may seem,
each boy and girl holds in his possession a key to this mystical
chest, a key forged from personal initiative.
When the freshmen unlock the chest, they hold in their hands
beautiful gems as sparkling as sapphires and as iridescent as
perfect opals. These jewels, which the freshmen draw, will not
bring a king's ransom but will prove to be infinitely more valu-
able to their possessors, for these jewels are the education of
mind and soul. Each owner will feel the thrill of pride and satis-
faction of tasks well done and friends well made. To these
freshmen, then, is imparted the glow of preciousness of the first
insight into the power of knowledge and co-operation.
As the sophomores and juniors step to the chest of treasure,
they find that it holds for them the beginnings of the intricacies
of maturity, finely carved as ancient jade. Suddenly these boys
and girls are taller, they are filling out. They sometimes do very
silly things, yet they are conscious of a desire to know better,
to act properly. They are conscious of an awareness of the
opposite sex, of the means of a livelihood. They begin to date,
they begin to join various types of organizations, they begin to
take interest in courses that will help them earn a living. These
sophomores and juniors are stringing together the pearls of
To the seniors, the young men and women next in the line for
treasures, thoughts of colleges and careers are prominent. For
them the chest holds scholarships and offerings of greater know-
ledge, jewels of the rarity of blood-red rubies. For them, also,
the chest holds shimmering diamonds of romance and of many
fields waiting to be explored.
Thus, one by one shall the freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and
seniors, aided and abetted by faculty and parents, pass through
our book and Tolleston High School and discover the offerings of
the treasure chest.

Classes began at 8:30 a.m. At 8:35 a.m., students were
breathlessly arriving.This was the start of a typical school day.
One could usually find several girls, monopolizing the lockers,
primping madly while munching a wholesome breakfast of crack-
ers or a candy bar.
Those innocent eyes, that appeared to be studying diligently,
might be doing just that-or they might be devouring a romantic
note or thrilling comic book.
During the winter months, lunch at the cafeteria was usually
followed by a rowdy snowball fight. To the victors were awarded
a conference in Mr. Standley's office, for throwing snowballs
was an absolute violation ofthe rules.
In the spring a young man's fancy lightly tumed to thoughts of
basketball and baseball practice. The boys spent all spare time
either in the gym or on the outside H A' '

Tolleston treasure chest-the chest that
contained the students' school life.
NEW BUILDING AND SYSTEM
Two years ago, students, faculty, and parents
heard about a new system and saw blueprints of a
new building-ToIIeston's new building. Ah! Dreams
beginning to come true.
With the coming of bulldozers, bricklayers, car-
penters, electricians, and other workmen, what had
been iust a gleam in everyone's eye began to come
true. Today the blueprint stands as a twelve room
The rooms are modem with tile walls, green
boards, light-colored matching furniture, fiuorescent
lighting, and large windows.
Aside from the attractiveness of the new addi-
tion, the practical purpose for it was certainly put
to good use since the former congested conditions
were somewhat alleviated. All of the intermediate
grade IeveI were housed in one building, the home
economics department was enlarged, and the number
of classes convening in the portable was greatly
As an accessory to the new building, Tolleston
experimented with a new system of class hours and
student programs. To conform with the state ruling

of fifty-five minute periods, it was Principal J. W.
Standley's suggestion to have six fifty-five minute
periods rather than seven fifty minute periods. Five
of the six periods were devoted to generally re-
quired academic and special subjects while the
sixth period was known as the home room period.
Every Monday of the home room period was given
over to guidance, and every student was required to
be present. The other days of the week were spent
with club meetings, rehearsals, study, and various
other activities in which students wished to parti-
This new system found favor with both the
teachers and students. The teachers appreciated it,
for each teacher had his own room and was obliged
to spend less after school time on extra-curricular
activities. By the same token, the students favored
the plan, for now they could hold jobs and still be
able to participate in activities.
With so many changes having taken place in such
a short time, it was dilticult for students, faculty,
and parents to recall that two short years ago they
heard about a new system and saw blueprints for a
new building-Tolleston's new building-dreams

The smiling faces of the girls sitting behind the desks
in the oftice were an example of the pervading spirit of
the friendliness of Tolleston School.
Besides being decorative these same girls were effi-
cient and kept the oftice running smoothly. Their duties
were varied, but their principal tasks were well defined.
In the high school office Mrs. Dorothy Gaski handled all
school money and accounts while Miss Elaine Bartkow-
ski kept attendance records and changed programs. Miss
Bette Bean and Miss Joan Kish, in the grade school
office, also took care of the book rental and kept attend-
ance records and change of program cards.
Functioning as still another of the integrated whole
of school were Mrs. Gladys McCrosky, nurse, who took
one's temperature and either sent one back to class or
home, and Mrs. lda Magioudus, attendance director, who
made sure one was home or else. It takes many people
and various jobs to keep a school working for the best
interests of everyone.

With the rap, rap ofthe gavel, the meetings of the Parent
Teachers' Association were called to order. The Parent Teach-
ers' Association, more familiarly known as the P.T.A., is the
only organization where teachers and parents meet for the ex-
press purpose of becoming acquainted with one another so that
each can help the other in the vital task of making Johnny and
Mary worthwhile citizens of school, city, and state.
ln order to raise money to make themselves self-sufficient and
to further their proiects, the P.T.A. sponsored two 'Square
Dances' and several lectures. The money eamed was used to
send a Tolleston girl to Girls' State and to sponsor a 'Founder's

The Advisory Council is an active group of mothers whose
ldren attend or attended Tolleston School. Propeled by this
association with the school, the mothers have felt called
to help solve some ofthe problems arising in school.
Meetings of the Advisory Council always have been held in
ome room of the school. These meetings were attended by the
others and Mr. Standley and, on many occasions, by teachers.
Although the Advisory Council had always been generous-
aying for the seniors' caps and gowns and other such commend-
ble proiects, this year they out-did even their own generosity.

To promote further interest in the
Latin language and Roman history, the
Latin Club was organized. At the month-
ly meetings members were given an op-
portunity to display their knowledge of
Latin by performing skits and plays.
The social activities of the Latin
Club also revolved around the idea of a
better conception of Roman customs and
events. One of the most typical of such
sound events, engaged in by the Latin
Club, was the Roman Banquet. At the
banquet the senior members were served
by 'slaves,' otherwise known as first
year members. Food, the manner of eat-
ing, and entertainment were all done in
the Roman style.
This year, as in previous years, the
Latin Club participated in the city-wide
Latin Conference. Here everyone was
given an opportunity to exchange ideas,
to discover how other Latin Clubs oper-
ate, and to find, that although the Ian-
guage is no longer spoken, Latin is far
from being dead.
Behold! The king and queen with their attend-
ants-fnicest court I've ever seenll

'Buenos dias, amigos, and welcome to the
Spanish Club.' Here the Espanoles have
learned the Spanish language and customs and
managed to have fun in so doing.
One of the featured events of the club was
the Fiesta, where Spanish music and dances
were the order of the evening.
Another memorable event was the Christmas
party, where blindfolded and with sticks,
everyone tried to break the pinata lthe large
balloonl to release all the goodies icandy,
cake, etc., inside.
ln such ways as fiestas, high-lighting Span-
ish customs, songs, dances, and language,
have the members ofthe Spanish Club imbibed
kinship for our Latin American friends.

In the latter capacity the home room represen-

For many years a strong organization, the R.O.T.C.
almost saw its end this year of l950. At Tolleston, as
at other schools, the enrollment had fallen oft to such
an extent that disbandment of the R.O.T.C. was con-
One of the reasons given for the low enrollment was
the fact that a cadet had to have two years of R.0.T.C.
Another reason was that R.O.T.C. could no longer be
substituted for physical education.
With an eye towards new recruits, Post l562 of Tol-
leston held a demonstration to which all eighth grade
boys were invited.
However, the story was not all one of gloom. The
highest attainable honor was received by Tolleston.
Any boy with a rank of captain or higher was given an
opportunity to take the examination which would qualify
him for the regimental commander. As a result of this
examination, Donald Small was appointed regimental
commander of all Gary schools. Third in rank and com-
mand in the city was Eugene Kelly, regimental adiu-
As a further encouragement to the R.0.T.C., lor so

what the boys couldn't and will assure us growing

To comply with a growing de-
mand for that increasingly popu-
lar and worthwhile hobby, ama-
teur photography-the Shutter
snappers Club came into being
Meetings were held once a
week and frequently were taken
over by Mr. George Keneson,
local photographer, who lectured on the tech-
niques of photography. Other times members took
pictures and developed them under the super-
vision ofthe sponsor, Miss Olive Leslcow.
Through the receipts from the sales of the

As a new project, a 'photogenic' dance was
held on the first day of spring. A 'Blossomtime

girls representing each class and taken by the
members of the club. In this way Shuttersnappers

Reorganized this year under the leadership of Miss Julia Baron, the
Girls' Club was the source of many educational and enlightening events.
Open to all iunior and senior girls, it was the purpose ofthe club to
discuss and delve into any problems relevant to high school girls.
At their meetings the girls talked about such pertinent factors as man-
ners in and out of school, proper clothes for all kinds of aftairs,dating,etc.
Two much anticipated events were the lectures given by Dr. Joseph
Kopcha, one of Gary's leading physicians, and Dr. Phillip Franklin,
Through lectures like Dr. Kopcha's and Dr. Franklin's and through
their own discussions, the girls have made of the Girls' Club a very
instructive and constructive organization.

'Blow a little harder, Mikel'
'P X xx:
'Double, double, foil and trouble, Bunsen burn
and beaker bubble,' was an apt paraphrase for
the Future Scientists of America, whose noble
purpose was to undertake and complete worth-
while scientific proiects. It was the idea of the
F.S.A. that everyone should have some concep-
tion of his surrounding world.
Because of this highminded ideal, the proiects
undertaken by the members of the club, under
the guidance of Miss Juanita Joice, dealt with
electronics, astronomy, and chemical analysis.
Just to prove that even geniuses are human,
all microscopes, telescopes etc., were tucked
out of sight for that important social event,
'The Poor Man's Proml'
With this frivolity out of their systems, things
like the atom and hydrogen bombs once more
became topics for discussion as the Future
Scientists of America leamed about the world.

Swirling brushes, nimble fingers, and
creative minds were words best describ-
ing the members of the Art Club. A few of
the many activities in which the members
engaged were Hnger painting, clay model-
ing, and weaving.
Each year the club members work on a
proiect for the year. The principal proiect
undertaken this year was a mural of the
community of Tolleston. Chronologically,
the mural depicts the founding of Tolles-
ton by George Tolle, the development of
this section and its schools, and its ex-
pected growth. The mural was placed in
the new addition and was gratifyingly
accepted by all who viewed it.
One of the reasons for the success of
the Art Club has been because of ambi-
tious projects affording ioy to everyone.

These were words heard frequently during the
cross country season. Cross Country, a two
mile race, presented a great challenge to the
boys running. The record for the two mile race
was nine minutes and fifty-five seconds. Al-
though none of the boys from Talleston equalled
this record, they gave their 'all' for the cause,
and Paul Varro did place second in the city

A team can play and win only because
there are others behind it. Backing up
the team, one finds the coach, the cheer-
leaders, water boys, student managers,
and reserve players.
The coach is, naturally, the mainstay
of the team. The cheerleaders lead the
crowd and give the team spirit while the
water boys and managers pep up and
encourage the boys. Last but not least,
are the boys who sit on the bench-not

Taking their place behind the football and
basketball teams have been the vivacious cheer-
leaders. Long noted for their adeptness and
originality, the girls have spent tireless hours
perfecting their cheers and their routine. Like
true leaders, they have faithfully and doggedly
followed the teams, imbuing both them and the
spectators with their lively spirit.

Fifteen hardworking and versatile stu-
dents comprised the 1950 Pioneer Staff.
Faced with grave financial problems, the
members of the staff were called upon to
originate many schemes that would raise
enough money to transfer the book from
the red to the black side of the ledger.
To carry out this vital purpose, some of
the tasks undertaken were the sponsoring
of dances after football games, the sell-
ing of candy during the lunch hour and
after school, the selling of salt water
talfy, Christmas tree ornaments, and holly.
However, there was no use having mon-
ey if there were no book. Therefore, these
same fifteen staFf members used their in-
genuity to put out a Pioneer truly repre-
sentative of school and community life.
Many days and nights were spent in
experimenting with novel layouts, with
cutting pictures, pasting pictures, writing
copy, rewriting copy, typing, typing, and
typing. The result of all these strenuous
labors and taut nerves was a Pioneer
gratifying in appearance and purpose.

Through the untiring eFlorts and well-
blended voices of the Mixed Chorus, the
Tolleston community and Gary have en-
ioyed many memorable hours.
Some of these occasions were the
Christmas pageant, the Christmas carols
sung over the loud spealcers on Broad-
way, Baccalaureate and Commencement
programs, and songs sung at the ceme-
teries on Memorial Day.
This year, as in other years, several
members of the chorus were entered in
the Northem Indiana High School Band
and Vocal Contest. Both Robert Tolcash
and Lee Widner have been victorious.
One of the limbs of the Mixed Chorus
was the Barber Shop Quartet. Whenever
asked, this group of harmonious voices
provided both musical and comical plea-

BOYS' GLEE CLUB
Although newly born this year, the Boys' Glee Club lost no
time in taking its place in everyone's heart.
Meeting on Wednesdays during the home room hour, the boys
chose their repertoire and prepared their programs. Some of the
programs prepared were for the Christmas Pageant and the carol-
ing over the loudspeakers an Broadway. With the full and vibrant
tones of the instruments behind them, the boys contributed in-
comparable enioyment to the annual band concert.
Membership into the Boys' Glee Club was restricted in only
one way-a love for song and music. Any boy who was truly fond
of singing was able to ioin the club.
Perhaps it was because of this one requisite, perhaps it was
because the song ranged from 'be-bop' to classical. In either
case the boys were able to entertain other people and to share
with them their love of song.

Proudly clothed in the brilliant blue and white of their sparkling new uniforms, the Tolleston
Concert Band presented a colorful picture. Every member of the band was doubly proud because
everyone had sold magazine subscriptions, tickets for dances, etc., to help eam the money for
those stunning new uniforms.
The new uniforms also were perfect foils for the new, snappy marching steps and parade ma-
To prove their versatility, many members of the band entered and placed in the Festival held at
Crown Point, Indiana. First place honors were awarded to the clarinet quartet, cornet trio, and
saxophone quartet. The first place winners were John Botcheller, Duane Swisher, and Joseph
Shakes. Eleven of the contestants placed second while two won third place. Going on to greater
victory, in Indianapolis, the entrants again won first, second, and third places.
Not content to rest upon their laurels, the members of the band and Mr. Edmund Bielski, director,
determined to, and did make the spring concert the best and most enjoyable one given.
Judging by the large and faithful following of students, alumni, faculty, and guests the band had
succeeded in every way-music, marching, and maneuvers.
