Mastering Basic Technical Skills
HOPS at Vx7.T.H.S. play an ever important role in training the industrial leaders for
' the Atomic Age. Basie skills in welding and aviation mechanics are stressed as
well as theory in all fields, Other industrial shops step into the limelight as the curtain
goes up on a new world.

Education for The General Welfare
HE Atomic Discovery marks at turning point in human affairs. The destiny of the
World is being set by the use to he made of this new source of energy. Untold possif
hilities for thc enhancement of life lie ahead as materials are harnessed and put to Work
on behalf of mankind Their realization calls for social engineering as well as technical
Developing Our Human Resources
ATURAL resources are of vital concern to a nation, hut they must he developed and
used by people. Science and technology-strictly rnanfmade-are producing synf
thetic substitutes for certain natural resources that we lack and is helping preserve and
develop others. Educated men and women can do these things. Only people make at
nation truly great.
Students Today, Citizens Tomorrow
CROSS the campus, down the halls, walk the students of today-the citizens of tomorrow, Carrying
their books, laughing, chatting, walk this generation that is destined to be the future leaders in a
new world. Through close association with persons of other races, creeds, and colors, they receive a
training that is invaluable to them, and to the world. The training is simple enoughfit is the under'
standing of one's fellow man.
In the New Era which lies in the future, it is of paramount importance to ourselves, to our counf
try, and to the world that we be able to think clearly, concisely, judiciously, and fairly at a time when
we will be called upon to make decisions for our generation and for the future. We are training our
youth for the Atomic Age. This education must not be limited to the technical side of the makings of
an atomic bomb, but it must include a philosophy which incorporates the will to live in peace with our
neighbors in all parts of the world. That is "Education For The Atomic Agef'

is a part of the modern schools program. Vvfaukegan High is developing a well
rounded student guidance program to help accomplish this purpose. Included in the
local setfup is a Child Guidance Bureau, to he expanded next year, a system of class
counselors, one for hoys and one for girls in each of the four classes, an oiiice of occuf
pational placement and adjustment, and a full time director of testing and research.
The library service is a further aid in meeting individual needs hy providing survey
materials for exploring varied interests.

HE high school physical education program is being expanded to insure that every
boy and girl be afforded the opportunity to develop physically through participaf
tion in supervised activity. Popular as is the appeal of competetive athletic contests,
the trend in wellfplanned school programs today is definitely toward activities involvf
ing all students. A

Strengthen Home Life For Peace
HE completion of the units in Home Economics offered at W.T.H.S. will help prepare a
girl for her inevitable occupation of home living. It is unquestionable that a knowledge
of the basic homefmaking arts will make her home duties easier and more pleasant. Although
it is not so easy to learn about human relationships as it is to learn to bake an apple pie,
much is acquired in the junior and senior course, Home Living, that will make life more
satisfying and successful.

TOM bombs and foreign people are signihcantg but important too, in a -democracy, is the rccognif
tion of individual needs. This year, particular attention has been given to pupils with special handif
caps. For those with defective vision, sightfsaving classes have been maintained, for those with speech
or hearing diiiiculties, a critical diagnosis has, in many cases, led to correction of the trouble. Remedial
classes have been continued for those whose rate and comprehension in reading is retarded. Despite
thc changes that the atomic age may develop, one basic unchanging need of the student is individual
consideration, in order that he may develop his interests, attitudes, and abilities, to the fullest extent.
Language Study Makes For World Harmon
IVINLL in an atomie age with any feeling of security depends upon the degree of friendlif
ness in our contacts with other nations. One aid in developing a friendly feeling is the
knowledge of other peoples' language, their culture, their customs, and their way of living.
Such a knowledge brings tolerance, a sympathetic understanding of the life of a nation, and
an appreciation of that nations contribution to world harmony.

DUCATION for the Atomic Age presents a unique challenge to teachers of the Social Studies. lt is
their responsibility to prepare citizens to live in an atomic age, to know the history of this cosmic
force, and to realize the tremendous possibilities for good in its development. lts wise use by the United
States or the regulation as to its uses by the United Nations can determine what place atomic energy
will play in world atlairs. Of the utmost importance is the building of understanding and of faith in
the United Nations, the last hope of world peace, now or in the years ahead. This understanding and
faith must be instilled into the minds and hearts of people in all nations. The public schools of every
land must answer this mighty challenge.

MPH.-XSIS on art and music in the school program fills the recognized need for promoting world peace
and individual wellfbeing through the international language of beauty. The courses offer opportunif
tfes for student self expression. Ideas are translated into objects in the art classes. Sheets of ragged
leather become purses. Puddles of clay become figu res. A sheet of brass may become a bowl or a brace'
let. Charcoal may mean a portrait, or it may serve as a base on which a silver ring is brazed. A stone
picked up on the beach may become the set of a ring-if the hands are patient enough. The vocal and
instrumental music classes provide opportunities for perfection of acquired skills, as well as service to
the school in providing entertainment in the form of concerts and special programs. Guidance in the
appreciation of the classics and daily practice helps the student acquire a more thorough knowledge of
music in general, and perfect skills in advanced musicianship.

Offer University Extension Courses
To accommodate the registration overdow of veterans and other high school graduates at the State
University, a University of Illinois Cooperative Extension Center was set up at Waukegan Township
high school last September. C. E. Prichard, high school principal, has served in the capacity of Dean
for the new service, with D. W. Fields as assistant.
At present the freshman university course is the only one offered. Completion of the work offered
here makes it possible for a student to earn credits qualifying him for sophomore standing, which cred-
its may be transferred to most colleges and universities.
A total of 214 students completed the course this spring. About three-fourths of those enrolled were
men and a majority of these were veterans of World War II. There were twenty-four teachers on the
stafg nineteen of them were members of the W.T.H.S. faculty. Plans have already been completed for
continuing the university extension classes here beginning next September.
dult Evening Courses Expanding
With a total enrollment of more than 600 for the second semester of the past year, the adult eve-
ning school conducted at Waukegan High is gaining in popularity each year. Under the direction of
George W. Osbun, there were twenty-seven separate courses in progress the past semester.
With no entrance requirements set up, men and women of all ages have been finding new and in-
teresting experiences in attending evening school. Adults with varied degrees of past educational attain-
ments are eligible for any courses offered except credit courses which specify that certain pre-requisites
must be met. Students desiring high school credits may earn them at evening school. Other offerings
include refresher courses and work in vocational education which will help the student secure job ad-
vancement. Recreational courses in swimming and gymnasium work for both men and women have
proved to be popular. Almost any type of class will be taught in theievening school provided that there
is a minimum of fifteen interested persons enrolled.
Summer Classes Begin Third Year
The Hrst summer school session at Waukegan Township high school was held in 1945, with 220
students enrolled. In 1946 the enrollment was almost double that of the year before. The 1947 session
will begin June 9 and continue for eight weeks, ending August 1. Courses will be offered in all subjects
including Physical Education and R.O.T.C. The 1946 enrollment included a group of students from the
seventh and eighth grades who were interested in typing and physical education.
The summer school offers an opportunity for students to secure extra credits, or to make up work
in which they have failed, as Well as providing a way to spend part of the long summer vacation in
recreational activities at home and at nominal cost. The program is so arranged that a student may
take one, two or three courses according to his needs or preference. This program is especially attrac-
tive to those who wish to attend school in the morning and work in the afternoon.
In the past two summers courses in English and the Social Studies have had the largest enroll-
ments, with commercial and mathematics classes next in size. Physical education and military, offered
for the first time in 1946, proved popular and an increased interest in this area is expected this summer.
The Summer School is conducted by a staff of ten teachers, and is under the immediate direction of
Charles E. Melton.

assistants provide these materials at the time when they can he most effectively utilized.
Among the aids provided are: sound films, miniature and standard slides, silent and
sound film strips, records, transcription recordings, posters, pamphlets, charts, models,
and still pictures.
The W.T.H.S. audio visual department has gained state wide acclaim for the ex'
cellence of its service to students and teachers and also for its efficient record system.

Here's Your Student Council
HE purpose of the Student Council is to provide an outlet for expression
of student opinion, and to give an opportunity for student participation
in the administration of the school. The members of this yearls council feel
that they have achieved a fair degree of success in fulfilling these two hroad
ohjectives, while at the same time they are fully conscious of opportunities
The month of Septemher was one of organization and orientation to
new programs. The Council had set as a goal for this year, closer contact
with the student hody. This they hoped to gain through hifmonthly class
council meetings and homeroom hulletins.
September also saw the initiation of the social program hy the providf
ing of dances after two night football games and one getfacquainted dance
at the close of the first week of school.
Meetiiigs of the Planning Commission are attended regularly hy the
four officers of Council. There are also two representatives on the new
Activity Committee. This group, as the name implies, is studying the
overfall extrafcurricular program of the school.

N international touch was added to Council activities hy the Foster
Parent Plan. Through this national organization, W.T.H.S. cares for
two European children hy sending fifteen dollars per month per child.
The annual picture drive took place in Novemher with Phil Leatherman
serving as chairman. Mr. O'Bett's took 1,926 pictures. They will he used
for the annual, for otlice record cards, and for personal exchange.
Council initiated the IEA insurance plan this year. For a nominal fee
of Soc a student is provided with accident insurance for the school year.
Such insurance covers accidents on school property, or those taking place
on the way to or from school.
A eleanfup campaign was held first semester. By daily bulletins sent
to homerooms reminding students to he more careful, some improvement
was made. The assemhly committee comprised of Beverly ivlale and black
Branstrator have handled the problems connected with all general assemhlies.

They Produce Your Annual ' '
S you enter 138, the Annual Staff room, you are greeted by the busy atmosphere
created by twentyffive industrious workers. For their theme the staff selected
"Education for the Atomic Age," what every school is striving toward.
During the first weeks of the semester the staff chose its officers and assigned the
members of the staff to positions in which they could best serve. Members of each
division examined other books and references for suggestions on how they might pref
pare their section, After a few weeks of preparation, the staff once more assembled
to choose a theme. The selection of the theme is the first important step in beginning
the yearbook. It must be appropriate to the time and also adaptable.
During the second and third six weeks, each section was gathering material. They
sent out questioneers to organizations and arranged for pictures. Portraits of the entire
student body and faculty were seen process of being taken. After a few weeks the
staff had enough material to begin writing.
The staff maintains this pace throughout the year and by April when the dummy
sheets must go to the printer they are ready to attach the written material to the sheets
and send them on to be assembled into the book.
The industrious CofEditors, Barbara Klapp and Margot Goode were kept busy
counting line and spaces and seeing that all the writefups were in order. The organizaf
tion writefups were whipped into shape by Betty Guihan, Gerrie Durr, Margaret Mc'

'W' World Covers School News
ITH Eileen Siegel, editorfinfchief, Nancy McFarland, news editor, Barbara Nelle
Jones, copy editor, coming up from the ranks to take important positions on the
staff, the World got off to a good start in September. Diligent work on the part
of the entire staff produced a paper that covered all events thoroughly. Hard workers
on the staff were Joe Zolenz and Bob Koss, boys' sports editors, who gave the readers a
complete coverage of all sports events. Credit goes to Jim Bente, Lois Smith, Pat
Kosir, and joan DuBois for the valuable service they rendered in distributing the
paper, and managing the business affairs.
With midfyear graduation robbing the staff of its editors and some of its reporters,
an almost completely new staff was organized for the second semester. Under the edif
torship of Dorothie Warmann, assisted by Lionel Saltzberg, managing editor, and
Kathleen McShane, news editor, the paper continued in force and held up under all
the problems which faced it. The building housing the Defy Press, typesetters for the
paper, burned with all the equipment, whereupon the linotype operator came to the
high school and the Student HW" World was published as usual. lt was hard work,
and it took a lot of time, but the enjoyment and satisfaction in seeing the paper come
out was more than ample reward.

r. Red Cross Serves
HE purpose of the Waukegziii chapter of the jr. Red Cross is to act as a service and beneficial
.organization in unison with the National Jr. Red Cross. A representative is elected from each
homeroom, and these representatives make up the personell of the organization. Because the Jr.
Red Cross is a service organization, anyone wha is willing to work and serve is eligible for mem'
lfershipg as a result, the club has many voluntee: members.
The annual drive for membership in the National Jr. Red Cross at W.T.H.S. was held in
October with almost IOOWQ participation.
Under the able sponsorship of Miss Eleanor Fredbeck, and the following oiiicers: Clifford
Pauley, president, Susan Roos, vicefpresidentg M'ldred Rubinson, secretary, and Tom Brackett,
treasurer, the club succeeded in planning many events for the school. In December the Jr. Red
Cross sponsored the uSnow Ball". The "Sock Hop", the clubs' annual dance, was held in
April. This is the only dance of its kind at W,T.H.S. and the Jr. Red Cross sponsors it once a
year. Everyone dances in his socks, and as a climax to the evening, prizes are given for the funf
niest, the prettiest, and the most unusual socks.
The Jr. Red Cross meets every fourth Wednesdziy at 8:15 through homeroom period in the
Girls' League Club Room. Social meetings and p irties are held after school,

History Club Tops Them All
History Club Membership form a living club emblem' on the drill field.
LIMAXING its twentyfsecond eventful year, the Senior History Club still maintains its leader'
ship as one of the most popular and active organizations at W.T,H.S. Its members engage
in various activities, including dances, shows, educational trips, and banquets. The purpose of
the History Club is to interest students in Social Studies, and to promote leadership, citizenship,
and community service.
Chosen to guide the History Club on its exuberant way during the Hrst semester were Jim
Turk, president, Charlotte Leaf, vicefpresident, Volga Pofoff, secretary, Arthur Fuller, treasf
urer, Lorraine Sandberg, historian, Rosemary Zdanowicz and Pat Booth, board members, Tom
Mayfield, sergeantfat-arms, and Bev Jackson, program chairman.
Bus loads of Sr. History Clubbers journeyed to Northwestern University in October. Mem'
bers enjoyed a tour of the spacious campus, lunch in Scott Hall, and the Iowa State football
game. In November came the "History Hop", and the excellent variety show entitled "Down
Under" which was directed by "Ham" Ellefson.
To climax the first semester, the History Club staged its unique and elaborate 19th Annual
Banquet entitled "United Nations, Hello". Under the chairmanship of Rosemary Gross, this
superb affair, complete with foreign representatives, delicious food, and a clever show, proved
entertaining and successful.
Officers elected for the second semester were: James Turk, president, Charlotte Leaf, vice'
president, Volga Popoff, secretary, Rosemary Zdanowicz, treasurer, Lorraine Sandberg, historf
ian, Gerry Durr and Pat McGrain, board members, George Minkler, sergeantfatfarms, and Phylf

10 in memory of Abraham Lincoln. Other important events of the latter
half of the year were the spring show, "Under the Big Top", directed by
Mildred Rubinson, which introduced into W.T.H.S. a lavish show in form
of a three ring circus: and the thrilling educational excursion to Niagara Falls
and New York City during the Easter Vacation.
Under the superior sponsorship of Mr. Roy C. Hurd, another amazingly
successful year in the existence of the Senior History Club is proudly chalked

History Club Tours New York
ENTURING into a week of glitter and excitement more than eighty History Clubbers
and their chaperones left Waukegan on Thursday, April 3, for Niagara Falls and
New York. In two private coaches the group traveled with style, taking time out
from the round of fun only long enougfh to dine in a special dining car. At ten o'clock,
after passing the customs inspector at the Canadian border, the group arrived in Welf
land, boarded buses, and were soon peering through the dusk at the marvelous spectacle
of Niagara Falls. Here the mist was so heavy that the bus windows were dripping
with water. After a good. sleep in the attractive Niagara Hotel and a two hour look
at the Falls, buses were loaded and taken to Buffalo via the scenic Niagara River, ln
Buffalo the Empire State Express awaited the group.
'LDiving with a roar into the two and one half mile tunnel that burrows beneath
the glitter and swank of Park Avenue," the Trippers came into Grand Central Sta'
tion and soon caught sight of awefinspiring Times Square. Previews of movies and
fullflength comedies are shown here on huge screens high above the pavement. Ven'
dors' push carts filled with sweetfsmelling flowers, chocolate bars, roasted chestnuts,
and many other things. One can see neon signs flashing names of famous theaters,
stars, and night clubs, and can even get a view of various night club performers
through the glass windows of some of the clubs. The whole impression one gets of
Times Square is that of an overfgrown carnival scene. .
Saturday morning was occupied with a sightfseeing bus trip all around the island,
which unfortunately had to be taken in the rain. On this trip the eager adventurers
saw the famous building, the Bowery, and Harlem, which is occupied not only by
negroes as is commonly believed, but also by Polish and Jewish peoples. Another mem'
orable part of the trip was a visit to the cathedral of St. john the Divine, a gorgeous
building which will be completed one hundred years from the date on which it was
begun in the 189O's. A tour of Radio City and turkey dinner at Billy Rose's famous
night club, the Diamond Horseshoe, followed. The club is very smart and the floor'
show is excellent, consisting of chorus, vocal, comedy, and acrobatic numbers.
Sunday those who could possibly rouse themselves from their beds at the Lincoln
Hotel were up bright and early to get in the Easter Parade and go to church. The
afternoon was spent in another tour of the island, this time by boat. That evening
many of the Trippers went to Radio City Music Hall where the most beautiful pageant
many of us had ever seen was viewed in the annual Easter performance. The Rock'
ettes, Corps de Ballet, and other acts were also enchanting.
Blowing around the tower of the 102 story Empire State building next morning
was a sixty mile wind, but nothing daunted the group busily snapped lenses and rolled
film. They kept on doing so aboard the beautiful ship, America, later in the morning.
This is the largest luxury liner ever built in the United States.
And then it was time to leave. With a reluctant goodbye the Club boarded the
Pennsylvania Railroads famous Trailblazer and Hnally reached Chicago, six hours late
but still happy. At four o'clock Waukegan was reached via the Skokie, and it really
looked pretty good, even after New York.
Sharks Polish Their Techniques
HE purpose of the Slide Rule club is to broaden the students' interest and experif
ence in mathematics by providing an opportunity to learn to manipulate the slide
rule. After a short business meeting, Mr. W. W. Barczewski, club sponsor, usually
plunges into the fascinating problems connected with a slide rule. Multiplication, dif
vision, proportion, powers, roots and trigonometric functions are taken up in turn.
Although the club is not a social organization, the members being mainly concerned
with learning a usefill skill, they worked hard on the "Slide an' Glide", a dance spon-
sored by the club after the Thornton game. Several parties were also given, at which
the members participated in contests.
Untangling complicated problems are these members of the Advanced Slide Rule Club:
Arnold Aegerter, treasurerg Mr. Barczewski, sponso-rg Misak Ekizian, Phil Mobergg
Betty Guihan, vice-presidentg Arthur Falk, president.

unior History Club Is Active Group
HE Junior History Club, a small but active organization, has had a very successful
-year. Encouraged by their sponsor, Miss Jesse Whyte, they have visited various
civic organizations, such as the Post Oilice, to see how they function. A
The club has a constitution and byflaws which are necessary reading for all mem'
bers. These rules are strictly adhered to throughout the season. The club has many
plans for next year. They hope to go to Springfield and visit the shrines of Lincoln as
Well as the state capitol buildings.
At the beginning of the school year the oilicers were as follows: Ewert Kline, presif
dent, Marcia Sick, vice-president, Mildred johnson, secretaryg and Laura Nukich,
board director, Since it is customary for the club to hold an election for eadh semester,
the second term's oihcers were: Jacqueline Snyder, president, Karrina Mikkila, vice'
president: Mary Kapoian, secretary, Geraldine Zawasky, board director.
Assembled before a club meeting, this typical crowd of about
sixty members represents the usual meeting attendance. This
group will advance to the Senior History Club and will be the
lucky ones to journey to New York, Washington, and other
points of interest.

HE purpose of the Cosmo Club is to promote racial and religious tolerance through'
out the school and community. Although the club is small it strives in every way
to remain true to its purpose. Questions concerning the F.E.P.C., the jews in Palesf
tine, and the rights of the Negro are discussed with possible solutions agreed upon,
The Cosmo Club is represented on the lnterfRacial Council of the city by its presif
dent. The club helped sponsor the mass Brotherhood Sunday meeting at the High
School in Ivlareh with some of the members acting as ushers.
The club has its social side as well as its intellectual. They sponsored thc "Fourth
Quarter Froliev, an all school dance, after the Highland Park football game. A Hallo'
Ween Party was also given for the members. Several times they inet jointly with the
Senior History Club for social and business conferences.

The purpose of the programs of this club is to add to the knowle ge o c
and ideals. An original skit, 'iUbiTu Gaius, Ego Gaia," written by Barbara Billante
and Wztyiie Clark, was presented both to the club and as a noonfhour entertainment
in the Junior Assembly. Early in the second semester plans were started for the club's
Latin party in April and a Latin banquet in May.

Stud German Languages And Customs
NE of the interesting language clubs in Waukegziii High is the German Club
- sponsored by Miss Bess Dady. This educational club provides an opporf
tunity for students to practice the further use of a foreign tongue outside of the
classroom. It helps arouse greater interest in the history, customs, and the culf
tural background of the German people and thus provides an occasion for fur'
ther use of the Old Saxon language. In this postfwar era it is important for
people knowing the German language to also have a knowledge of the customs
and background to better understand the job of refeducation of this race. A
working knowledge of the language will qualify persons for aiding in the ref
habilitation of that nation.
Besides the many games, contests, talks, and skits, the club held its annual
Christmas party which was well attended. James Ekstrand, presidentg Mary Lou

This cluh particularly has carried out policies of the atomic age, such as developf
ment of good will through increased knowledge and greater appreciation of the Spanf
ishfspeaking countries, their peoples and customs. Besides the promotion of Spanish
conversation, the work of the organization developed leadership, dependability, eo'
operation, and respect for rights of others.
Among the entertaining and hcnelicial presentations of the year was a Quiz Prof
gram conducted hy Boh Metczilf, el senor preguntador, who based his questions on the
dances, music, and customs of Latin America.
Everyone enjoys music. The attention of SOO Spanish and History cluh members
at Mrs. Eulalia Stade's Recital on LatinfAmerican music proved this.
Great interest was shovvn in aviation, and positions connected with it, hy the
large group that heard Miss Betty Cannon descrihe her duties and experiences as
stewardess of PanfAmerican Airlines.
It was fun celebrating Christmas-wsinging Christmas carols in Spanish and pref
senting the play, La Nochebuena, which portrayed the customs in Mexiccu and was
climaxed hy the hreaking of the pinata. Regalitos, cluh pins in the form of Ivlexican

El Circulo Espanol Comes Cf Age
HEN Miss Evelyn Rummel came to W.T.H.S. fmany years ago,
she says, there wasn't any Spanish Cluh. ln fact, there were only
three Spanish classes at that time. Today, there are 342 students enf
rolled in Spanish.
At first, the classes consisted mostly of hoys, However, these hoys
and Miss Rummel, aided hy the Good Neighhor Policy, soon interested
many girls in the study of Spanish.
With the increased enrollment came the proposal of organizing a
cluh. This new cluh, El Circulo Espanol, was not only a form of enjoyf
ment, hut also a means of gaining a greater knowledge of Spanishfspeakf
ing peoples, their customs, and culture. lt also provided more opporf
tunities for speaking Spanish. Formerly, the membership was 50, hut
today it has increased to l5O.
Mrs. Eulalia Stade graciously played Latin-American music for

I girls maintained to produce a better racial, and religious understanding among
the peoples of the world. Previously there were two clubs, the Junior and Senior
clubs, but it has been decided, to combine the two to form one large group.
A conference is lheld annually of all Illinois YfTeen clubs. This year it was
held in Evanston. A few girls were elected to go and they in turn gave us their
reports. The purpose of these conferences is to acquaint the members with each
other, to discover the types of work carried on by the other clubs, and to have
open discussions on world problems.

ance, committee duties, chairmanships, and special program contri
butions. The chairmen of committees report the type of work done
and also girls on the committee. These blanks are handed in to the
vicefpresident who is in charge of points. She in turn, awards points
according to the job done and keeps records. Prior to conference
time the points are tallied and the active girls are chosen to ittcnd
and also to receive a Girls' League pin.
The last program of the year is the installation of oihccrs ind

demonstrations in developing, enlarging, and tinting, as well as in cor-
rect conditions for taking pictures.
Cn December 7 the Camera Club sponsored a 'dance called. 'The

were made by the members of the club. Dick Shultis provided the
music. During the Christmas vacation a party was held in the Cofop
hall, with each member and guest having an enjoyable time.
A member of the club was present at all of the home basketball
games to snap photos of all those exciting Bulldog plays and shots. The
meetings are held each Wednesday in room 138 with Eugene Brofka
presiding as president. The minutes are kept by Geraldine Karasek,
and records of all the money are kept by Art Opal. This interesting
club is under the sponsorship of Mr. E. C. Meslow.

NE of the best h
. 'vc is that of an amateur radio enthusiast. ln radio he is
known as a i'Ham". He spends hours improving his station and in conversing with amateurs all
over the world. During floods, storms and other catastrophies, when all other means of communications
fail, the "ham" is called in to get messages through for food, medicine and other supplies. Expedif
tions to the South Pole, ships at sea, starving peoples in isolated territories, all have on occasions relied
upon amateurs who have relayed messages to destinations. No other hobby can afford such a wide
acquaintance among lonely amateurs, lost explorers, and curious nobility.
The Radio Club at W.T.H.S. is for all students interested in amateur radio, The club was
formed to help and teach students the fundamentals of radio. Meetiligs are held on Thursday of each
week in room 310. Members are also taught code and they study the requirements for obtaining licenses
to own and operate an amateur radio station.
Qccasionally the members are fortunate in having guest speakers. On one event Pfc. Hatton of the
army spoke on his radio experiences during his ar.ny service.
Cofsponsors of this club are Mr. Ward Jamzs and Mr, Robert Nickel. The club officers are

Peppers Help Kindle And Maintaii
HE Peppers' Club of W.T.H.S. was organized several years ago to promote student
interest in the support of athletic events. During its three years of existence, the
Peppers' Club has grown to be one of the biggest and most active groups in the school.
Sections at both the football and basketball games are set aside for the Peppers. This
way they can help lead cheering. Many of the Peppers are seen wearing the Pepper
sweatshirts and hats.
The biggest events of the year are the two homecoming dances and the celebrations
connected with them. The big bonfire on the drill field on Friday night, the assembling
of decorations on Saturday morning, the big football game in the afternoon, and finally
the dance featuring the queen and her court that night-that's something to rememf
ber!! Our Bulldogs made both homecomings this year a high success by winning their
respective contests in football and basketball.
Another great undertaking for the Peppers' Club this year was the annual Spring
Sports banquet held on May 28. The purpose of the banquet is to honor those boys
who have devoted their time and energy to the lesser sports of the school.
Halfftime entertainment for the basketball games was provided this year by a new
addition to the Peppers' club-the Pepperettes. Programs for both the football and
basketball games were printed and distributed by the Peppers'g Elaine Hanzel of the
executive board has charge of this activity.
The regular meetings of the club are 'held the third Wednesday of every month in
the junior Assembly. At this time new yells are taught to the group by the cheerf
leaders. One of the most memorable meetings this year was conducted with the help
of the athletic department. The movies of the Champaignfwaukegan game were
shown to the Peppers and the parents of the Waukegan team.
Miss Melba Reid and Miss Eleanore Fredbeck, faculty sponsors, have injected the
needed vigor and stamina into the group to make it the club it is.

HIS year was a busy one, Before the band members had evcn started to become accustomed to school
again, they were tramping up and down the drill field and practicing formations for the football
games. The Band played at all homes games, marched at most of them, and of course enjoyed them all.
The basketball season came directly upon the heels of the grid season. For several months the boys'
mothers wondered when they would stop needing so many white shirts. The Bands main purposes at
the games were to provide entertainment and to produce a lively atmosphere. From all indications,
they succeeded in doing both.
During all this confusion, Mr. Graham was preparing his students for their first semester concert.
This concert, which was held in December, was adjudged to he one of the best. The practices, held
twice a week after school, paid off.
The second semester brought intensive preparation for the bigger and better Spring concert, and
also the state contests for solos, ensembles, and the entire band. They practiced until they knew the
music, they practiced until they were good, they practiced until their playing was almost flawless, and
then they kept right on practicing. lncidentally, at the District contest, W.T.H.S. was awarded eight
first and ten seconds.
The 26th Spring concert was wonderful from the first strain of the opening march to the last
chord of Rienzi Overture. The classical numbers, solos, novelty number, the lighter music and the
chorus, were greatly appreciated by one of the largest audiences ever to attend.

HE W.T.H.S. orchestra was no exception as far as achieving
'laurels is concerned. Although they didn't compete in inter'
school competition, they established many characteristics of mu'
sicianship that had been lacking the last few years.
Mr. Graham allowed all the students to conduct the orchesf
tra, thereby learning leadership and the ability to follow others.
They also were given a chance to improve their playing ability
by individual contest entries and by soloing before some of the
lodges and clubs in the city. In gaining knowledge in music
appreciation, the members of the 'little symphony" also learned
better cooperation and independence under their ofhcers: Presif

Although the orchestras primary activity is playing: at graduf

NDER the direction of Leslie Gilkey, the A Cappella clzoir
has progressed to new and greater heights in the field of
modern choralfarts. During the year the members entertained
old and young alike with the accurate blending of their well'
trained voices. Something new was enjoyed by the community
when they were invited to join the choir in its first presentation
of the year, The Religious Concert.
As is traditional, the young artists performed at Commencef
ment and Baccalaureate Services. Also, several assembly prof
grams were furnished with their harmony, The Spring Conf
cert, made up of religious and classical numbers, was highly
praised by all present. Mr. Gillcey's ability for arranging was
brought out several times in the numbers he prepared for the
group. The officers for the year were, first semester: Marie

1947 proved. a successful year for Waukegan's chorus and
the three voice clubs. Since being accepted as fullffledged or'
ganizations of W.T.H.S., they have bolstered their membership
almost onefhundred per cent. The members of the Bass and
Treble Clef clubs are students who desire more singing each day
than they receive in the larger voice groups. These pupils work
hard, devoting half of their lunch period to this study, and their
reward is the friendship and good fellowship of the group.
Besides performing at Commencement exercises and assemf
blies, these three clubs gave an outstanding performance at both
Spring and Fall Concerts. Mr. Gilkey deserves credit for his
unheralded Work "behind the scenes" with these three clubs.

Athletic Department and Varsity
T is the purpose of the athletic department to develop in every student skills, physical
cofordination, endurance, sportsmanship and good health. The man who must see
that all of his functions run smoothly is "Strings" Allen.
In the physical education program, the boys are taught how to play various games
of high and low organization, such as basketball, football, baseball, soccer, volley ball,
and track. Games of low organization consist of relays and races. All boys spend one
period a week in the pool and two days a week are given instruction in tumbling,
wrestling, and boxing, which develops individual strength and coordination. The boys
are also offered an intrafmural program after school for those who cannot make the
The girls' physical education program consists of a year of required activity for
Freshman and a half year of required theory work. The department prides itself in an
ever increasing enrollment in afterfschool sports. Through the sponsorship of the Girls
Athletic Association any girl in school may participate in such sports as swimming,
volley ball, baseball, basketball, soccer, tennis, golf, archery, horseback riding, gym'
nastics and rhythms.
The G.A.A. is prominent in state activities along with the Purple and Gold athf
letic teams. The W.T.H.S. football and basketball teams both broke school records in
the won and lost column during the past year. The swimming team enjoyed an ex'
cellent season and with the coming of spring there were several hundred boys that
reported for the five spring sports, baseball, tennis, track, golf and spring football.
f 'Iodern Athletic Program
Under the guidance of Leo Singer, "Strings" Allen, and Ted Daunos, the
Cluh has become one of the most active orgzinizzitions in school. Every
boy who earns a letter for participation in 11 high school sport is a memher of
this athletic honor group. lt serves as an effective means ot hringing together
the boys who have a common interest in athletics.
The oiiicers of this orgzinization are: Chuck Petter, president: Ray Van
Landuyt, vicefpresidentg Bob Koss, seeretaryg and jim Blumherg, treasurer.
Meetiiigs are held regularly on Tuesday mornings before school.
A date dance between foothall and hziskcthall seasons was the highlight of
the fall season. The cluh sponsors at picnic with all the trimmings, for mem'

Varsity Eleven Has Good Season
TARTING the 1947 season with a nucleus of ten letternien and several
promising boys up from last year's Junior varsity squad, Coach
Singer guided his fighting Bulldogs to the most successful season that a
Waukegan team has enjoyed in the past ten years. With an outstanding
record of eight wins and only one defeat, which was suffered at the
hands of the Oak Park Huskies, the Bulldogs clinched second place
honors in the Suburban League race. Cak Park won the Suburban
League Championship. .
Hanzel and Simcic, two of the outstanding Bulldog players, had the
honor of being selected for the allfstate team. These two players plus
Paravonian were also selected for the AllfSuburban team. Credit should
also be given to the other members of the team for their performance
in giving Vxfaukegan one of the best seasons in its history. Praise is due
Coach Singer and his staff for their guidance in directing this fine team
Most of this year's squad were seniors, but Coach Singer will have
four lettermen back plus Kirkpatrick, a transfer student, around which

VVAUKEGAN 17 9-13-46
Before an estimated crowd of 5,000 spectators, largest ever to see a prep game in
Waukegan, the Bulldogs defeated last year's Chicago High School champions. Tilden
had a smart hardfdriving team, but the Bulldogs proved to be tougher by turning all
the breaks into paydirt.
WAUKEGAN 13 9-20-46
Playing before a record crowd of 5,600, the Bulldogs tangled with Hirsch of Chi-
cago on an even basis until they finally pushed across the winning touchdown in the
last quarter. Credit goes to the whole Bulldog team, who outffought the powerful
Chicagoians' and marched on to victory.
WAUKEGAN 19 9-27-46
The Bulldogs won their third straight game under the lights at Chicago Heights by
downing an inspired Bloom eleven. Although they were penalized over 100 yards, the
Bulldogs fought back with vicious tackles, extraordinary ball toting, and a fighting team
spirit to come out on top.

might have triumphed. ,

'W' Tyro Gridders Also On Way Up
NDER the tutoring of Coach Chuck Reid, the
, FroshfSophs proved to be one of the scrappiest
teams ever to represent Waukegan. Confronted
with the task of building a strong eleven from a
group of inexperienced gridmen, Coach Reid fashf
ioned himself a hard hitting, high caliber team that
won 4, lost 3, and tied 1 game. Several boys who
will help form the nucleus of next year's varsity
are: Kenny Reinback, Dick Richardson, Adolph
jerdee, and Morris Hall.
Minor "W"'s: Paul Andro, Leonard Britton,

PARKED by Coaches Paul Burke and Warren
Thomas, the Frosh team enjoyed a successful
season as far as the tactics and the caliber of the
team are concerned. Although the won and lost rec'
ord was nothing exceptional, fine spirit, hard work,
and cofoperation shown by all of the boys particif
pating make the prospects for the future seasons
very bright. A schedule of five suburban schools
and the rest free lance was presented to the frosh
team. Because each boy served as a valuable link in
a chain, no exceptional players were noted.
The first call for candidates was made on August
27, 1946, and a total of nfty boys were equipped
with complete uniforms. By September 4, 1946, this
total had risen to eighty boys, and then only the
lack of equipment kept them from reaching and surf
passing the one hundred mark. The seasons schedf
ule was opened on September 19, 1946, against thc
Zion junior Varsity and closed November 7, 1946,
against Lake Forest Academy Sophomore squad.
The season's record of ive wins and four losses is
one of the best attained by a freshman eleven conf
sidering the number of games played and the caliber
of teams played. In league competition the squad
won two and lost three.
Throughout the entire season, one hundred boys
participated in freshman football, but because of
jobs, grades, etc, only fifty boys completed the sea'
son. Fne spirit, hard work, and the cooperation
shown by all the boys participating, make prospects
for future seasons very bright. .

EW Year, 1947, saw the close of the most successful season in the
basketball history of W.T.H.S. With the astounding record of
twentyfseven wins and only four setbacks, this great team was rated
first in the state the week of midfyear graduation. Waukegan is always
rated high in the fancy fifteen, but this is the first Bulldog team to attain
first place nomination. A
The Bulldog powerhouse had a record of eighteen straight wins dur'
ing the first semester, which included victories over such prominent
teams as Champaign, last year's state champs, Paris, this year's state
champions, and East and West Madison. In league competition, vicf
tories were scored over Morton, 1947 league champion, and against such
other great teams as Proviso, Cak Park and New Trier.
Despite the fact that George Clark, jim Blumberg, Dave Allen, and
Dick Bickel graduated at midfyear, such boys as Bob Mertes, Chet
Gugala, and Bob Madrich moved right into the vacated positions to keep
the Bulldogs on the victory trail. Coach Allen lost several men to june
graduation, among whom are Chuck Petter, Ray Van Landuyt, Abbie
Brownfield, and Harry Rodbro: but he will have back into the fold next
season Gugala, Madrick, Mertes, and Spriggs, who will endeavor to
establish a record equal to that of thc previous year.
These Stars Shone Bright And Fair
Left to right, Dick Bickel, Jim Blumberg, Dave Allen, and George Clark,
the four members of the Bulldog cage team whose loss was felt when
they graduated in January. Dave and George were both on the league
team and were considered the mainstays of the Bulldog quint which won
eighteen straight games before graduation. Although they were not
regulars, Jim and Dick played a large part in making of the best cage
team in Waukegan's history.
ESPITE the fact that two of the first string players were lost to mid'
year graduation, the fighting Bulldogs came through with a record
that would make any coach happy.
Al Brownfield rated third in the league scoring and was also very
high for total season scoring with 505 point' Although he played only
half of the games, Dave Allen was high inieague scoring. Waukegan
repeated for the second straight year in taking honors at the Madison
tourney and also in their tournament on New Year's Day. The Bull'
dogs have been defeated only once on the home floor in two years and
that was by Morton the second semester. The Bulldogs lead the league
at midfyear, but could not quite keep pace with Morton of Cicero the
second semester, and finished in second place.
ln the Regional tourney the Bulldogs defeated Evanston in the final
game to repeat as tourney champions. Traveling to Elgin for the Secf
tional, the Allenmen met and overran DeKalb, but the next night ran
up against Dundee, a traditional jinx in state tournaments, and were
beaten 55 to 42. The Allenmen, short on good reserves, came through
with the kind of play that only the Bulldogs could produce. "Strings "
fighting Bulldogs had lots of spirit, but the second semester the lads
couldn't quite get that last point and thereby dropped four games by

Tomorrow's Champs In The Making
The J. V. Basketball team C0aCl1ed by L. L. Singer turned in an impressive record, as did the other
basketball teams. During the season they played a total of 134 games, winning 9 and losing The J.V.
squad furnished the opposition for the Varsity during practice, has many prospects from which Allen
will choose his next yearls team. Some of them are: Jerry Hickox, Jack Blumberg, George Peterson,
Jim Tozer, Jerry White, and Lucius Copeland. These boys and the returning lettermen should give
Coach Allen a tough team to beat next season.
Following in the footsteps of the Bulldog Varsity. the Frosh-Sophs completed a most successful
season. Winning thirteen games while losing only seven, the puppies beat such vaunted teams as New
Trier, Morton, Highland Park, Evanston and Proviso to annex fourth place in the Suburban Leageu.
This was Coach Reid's second year at W.T.H.S., where he has compiled a record of twenty wins against
thirteen losses for the two years. The puppies made the most of their height and speed to fight
through heavy odds on the victory trail.
Standouts on this year's five may prove to be the nucleus of next year's varsity. Dave Spriggs,
Bill Staskiewicz, Charles Freise, Jack Siver, Del Kapter, Gene Payne and George Ankley are among

AUKEGANVS freshman basketball squad, from which will come material for next year's Suburban
'sophomore squad, and for future varsity teams, won ten games, and lost six during the 194647
campaign, The Bulldog yearlings, coached by jean Forticr, scored victories over Dundee, McAlister
grade school, Libertyville, Zion, Proviso, New Trier, and lost decisions to Oak Park, Nlorton, Thornton,
Top scorer for the freshman quintet was Lionel Coles, who tallied ll7 points for the season, folf
lowed by Fred Dretske, with 77 points to his credit. With the puppies working like Spartans, Coach
Fortier is confident that several of the frosh team will develop, within a year or two of practice, into
future varsity men. Coach Fortier, who has .had splendid success since taking over the frosh coaching
reins here three years ago, had a team that lacked height and outstanding offensive power, but proved
a solid offensive aggregation. The Waukegan tutor boasts a threefyear record of 34 victories and ll

AUKEGANlS Bulldog Ushers handled the crowds at the basketball
'games just as well this year as they have in the previous years.
These boys deserve a lot of credit as they volunteered for these duties
and they handled them faithfully throughout the entire basketball sea'
son. The ushers were ably handled by Steve Drew and Dave Fields.
They were feted by two dinners throughout the season which were enf
joyed wholeheartedly by all the boys. They deserve special praise for
the way they handled the crowds at the regional games here. All in all
the boys did a good job and everyone hopes to see them next year.

Tankmen Vie For New Records
OMPRISED mostly of minor winners, this year's varsity tank team won 4 and lost
3 league dual meets. Although midfyear graduation interfered, they scored 9
points to place sixth in the Suburban League meet. Coach Rickard was very pleased
with the showing of two juniors, Chris Martinez, who broke the previous 200 yard
free style record and Larry Benson who broke the 100 yard breast stroke.
After midfyear graduation, the diving department was hindered by the loss of
"Squirt" Emmerich. Last year "Squirt" won the Suburban League title and also took
fourth in the state meet. In the league meet, Benson placed. 4th in the 100 yard breast,
Kelly 5 th in the diving, and the medley relay team placed 4th. The 200 yard team of
Leatherman, Zoph, Emmerich, and Hansen placed ith.
Chris Martinez was voted Captain, and the most valuable swimmer for the 1946f
1947 season. Coach Rickard can be proud of his fighting Bulldogs and their spirit and
determination throughout the entire season.
In the FroshfSoph division, Coaoht Ted Damos led his midgets to a tie for fourth
place in the league.

Coach Drew has high hopes for the 1947 season with 12 lettermen and several promising minor
winners. Although he lost Staran, Hyde, Bairstow, Kinsey, and Drysdale via graduation, there are still
several experienced men back.

Grosche s Club Looks Toward Future
HE 1946 Baseball season saw thc Waukegjziii Bulldogs win five games and
lose eleven for their poorest season in twenty years. A green team, al'
though composed mainly of seniors, together with weak hitting and pitehf
ing strength too shallow for competition in the suburban league, all added
up to trouble. The team, just a little bit short, lost eight of the eleven
games by a onefrun margin. Even the powerful Oak Park elub defeated
Wziukegan by only 5f4 and 4f3 scores, The League wins were over New
Trier, Proviso and Highland Park.
Graduation depleted the 1947 squad heavily. Gone are Allen, Dalton,
Raaseh, Schroeder, Atkinson, Gordon, Lewis, Louie and Leroy Kovisto,
and jim Elsbury. The 5 lettermen remaining are Metzger, Hendrix, Gugala,
Latz and Toivonen. Even with this meager nucleus, Coach Grosche expects
a better balanced elub than he had last year.
MAJOR W awards went to Chet Gugala, Eggo Schroeder, Ray Atkinf
son, Tony Gordon, Marty Zbyszynski, jim Blumberg, David Allen, Chuck
Raaseh, Bob Dalton, Fano Elsbury, Arnie Toivonen, Artie Metzger, Richard

ITH Gordon Gredell, Ted Broecker, George Hottinger, Bob Hegel,

cleus of the 1946 team, Coach jean Fortier's netmen proved that tennis is
not a dying sport at Waukegan. The boys showed a fine lighting spirit in
the Suburban League race. The team had improved immensely over the
previous year and the matches won and lost were about even. Only three
boys on the 1946 starting team were seniors, thereby leaving Coach Fortier
four veterans for the current season.
A fine schedule with several important matches has been secured by
Coach Fortier for the 1947 season, Nonfleague matches with Kenosha and
Lake Forest Academy plus the regular league matches with New Trier, Oak
Park, Proviso, Highland Park, Thornton, Evanston and Morton. Waukef
gan is also entered in the state tournament with a good chance of sending
a couple of boys to Champaign for the finals.
The FroshfSophs didn't show as much spirit as thc Varsity, and didn't
fare as well in the matches. Leading mcn for the Sophs were Jack Collins,
Gene Small, and Alvin VanCleave.

HE G.A.A. is the ideal organization for all girls who enjoy sports. Under the guidf

sports as tennis, archery, golf, bowling, basketball, swimming, horseback riding, and
different forms of rhythms were given.
This year the club experimented with a council composed of seven members, the
three ofhcers and a representative from each class, whose responsibilities were to plan
for all meetings and extra recreational activities. The council was successful in the
tasks it undertook, such as revising the constitution, purchasing new equipment, and
planning camping trips that proved enjoyable to all the members. Qther activities were
a Play Day at Libertyville, volleyball games with Gurnee, the Penny Carnival, and an

learn the correct way to hold the how, place the arrows, shoot, and hit the target.
Although many of the girls didn't know much ahout tennis when they hegan, they

Basketball, Bowling In Limelight
L'RINr1 those cold winter months into the G.A.A, program come the popular sports
of howling and haskethall. These two sports help greatly in huilding up the wcllf
rounded sports personality. Bowling an indi 'id 'l s ' l
, x ua port, p aces all the responsibility
on the girl hersclfg thus helping her to lwuild up selffrcliancc. Ivlany of the girls didn't
even know how to hold a howling hall when they hegan, hut after a few lessons under
lvlrs. Slaters watchful eye, they improved greatly.
Basketball, with all its team work, will add a cofoperatiye attitude and an attitude
ol good sportsmanship to a girls character. The girls met in thc gym for basketball
and were under the guidance of Mrs. Slater and Miss Gorishek. These two sports of
howling and haskethall are greatly beneficial to the G.A.A. program.

Discussing an outline of the coming year's work are, left to right, Staff
Sergeant Claude Shelton, Major Verde W. Bennett, P.M.S. and T., and
Sergeant Paul Lietzke.
ITH the advent of spring 1947, restless R.G.T.C. cadets and their
oilicers were once more able to get outdoors to work on drill
formations an-d the manual of arms. Due to the expanded physical edu'
cation program at W.T.H.S., the Military department was not able to
offer cadets any drill during the winter months.
However, several new and interesting things were provided for the
theory classes. The army released a great deal of surplus material, such
as, Browning Machine guns, 80 and 60 mm. mortars, and other valuable
equipment which was used in class instruction. Another innovation was
class discussion on a new subject entitled "World Military Situation",
which proved very helpful in keeping Cadets informed of current world
Even with the coming of the Atomic Age, the Army feels that the
United States must keep a standing force, well trained in basic weapons
and basic military maneuvers. Therefore, the R.O.T.C. Department is
coordinating its training plan with that of the United States Army, and
hopes to give increasingly better instruction to each year's cadets.

HOSEN on their merits of efficiency and dependability, the honorary girl cadets proved competent
and played a valuable role in the R.O.T.C. program. They carried out their office duties as di'
rected, but did not stop there. All the Bulldog fans witnessed the admirable results of many month's
work spent in practice drilling, The girl honorary cadets participated actively and enthusiastically in
the many phases of preparation for the outstanding R.O.T.C. function, the Military Ball. Uncomf
fortahle in thick Winter uniforms as spring approached, they used their ingenuity to make lighter uni'
forms for warm weather. They were a pleasant type of decoration and a fine example of neatness on
such occasions as inspections and the like. The honorary girl cadets are to be congratulated.
" ET your goals high and even though you
don't quite attain them, your eilort is
your profit in the end", someone once said,
and that motto seemed to be what the 1946
1947 rifle team was following.
In the past years the Wztukegan team recf
ord may have been more impressive than this
years, but Sergeant Claude E. Shelton, rifle
instructor, feels that the experience gained in
competition with top flight Illinois teams will
reap a hetter reward than victories over medif
Under Sergeant Shelton's competent instrucf
t'on and leadership, the hoys of the rifle team
are mastering firing from all four positions:
standing, sitting, kneeling, and prone, and all
the many other necessary techniques of rifle
All the fellows agree that this last season
has been a successful one, and they look to
1948 with confidence. Keep up that fine spirit,
lwoys, and who knows, your work may he the
foundation for the huilding of the snappiest
rifle team in Illinois.

Graduates Of January, 1947
HEN the january class of 1947 entered W.T.H.S., they numbered one hundred
ninetyfnine pupils from many schools uniting to form a new Freshman class.
Although inexperienced in high school activities, some of the class took part in the
Freshman-Sophomore production, "Sixteen in August", and showed promise in the
drama field. They also had the thrill of participation in WGN's broadcast entitled
"Citizens of Tomorrow". Their Sophomore class party was held in the south gym,
and was enjoyed by all who atten-ded. '
For their Junior Prom, the "French Cafe", the gym was transformed into an out'
door cafe, typical of France. The color scheme was carried out in red, white, and
blue. This Prom was the big social event of the year for all the fellows and their girls.
Their Senior Play, "Ramshackle Inn", was an exciting mystery farce. Performed
on Friday and Saturday night, it held the audience spellbound from beginning to end.
Another event of the fun packed year was Senior Skip Day. The 4A's boarded busses
bound for the Ice Capades and were thrilled by the spectacular performances.
On January 19, Baccalaureate, Rev. Osborne Littleford gave an inspiring lecture
to the graduates, their families, and friends. This first graduation exercise brought to
the class the realization of stepping out into a new life, while Class Night provided
an evening of merriment for all who attended.
On January 23, the long awaited commencement came, and the students received
their diplomas. During the program speeches were given by Carol Schulz, Anna Marf
goian, Joyce Whitten, and Jack Branstrator. Because of its participation in Student
Council, band and Chorus, R.C.T.C., dramatics, and athletics, as well as in the regular
classes, W.T.H.S. can well be proud of the january class of 1947.
The class sponsors who helped direct the activities of the group were the Misses
Ruth Allen and Marion Coy.

Leaders In The Atomic Age
HIS class was assembled for the first time at Freshman Crientation in Septemf
be, 1943. There they learned the floor plan and were given general rules
and regulations. Class activities really began when the first ofiicers were elected.
They were Chuck Petter, presidentg Dick Hall, vice president, and Judy Schriner,
secretaryftreasurer. Their class party was typical of all freshman gatherings.
There was little dancing, but many attempts. Other entertainment was found at
Hangout and at various school activities. By the next June, this class had become
welluenough acquainted to enter their Sophomore year confidently and begin to
take the reins of power.
Ofiicers of the class in their Sophomore year were Bruce Kaufman, president,
Russell Hart, vice president, Lorraine Sandberg, secretary, and Virginia Pavlik,
treasurer. The year's activities included the class party and a dance. There were
many upfanfcoming athletes and also musical and dramatic minded students.
The Junior Prom, the "Dixie Lee," was of course the highlighi of their Junior
year. Virginia Pavlik, the chairman, and her committees worked hard and long
with the BB chairman and committees. Leading up to the Prom, the class gave
an allfchool dance after a basketball game, the unique name of this dance was
the "Basket Ball".
With the coming of their Senior year, the class figured extensively in Annual
and "W" World Staff work as well as in club and Student Council. Two of
the boys were members of the allfstate football team, while others excelled in
basketball, swimming, track, and tennis. i
The Senior class play "Our Hearts Were Young and Gay," under the di-
rection of Mrs. Ruth B. Norris, proved to be a success. With the able leader'
ship of the class oiiicers, Bruce Kaufman, president, Don Hoffman, vice presif
dent, Helen Sorvari, secretary, and Pat De Vilbiss, treasurer, the class dance,
commencement exercises, and Grad Hop were also successful. This class has
ranked favorably in scholastic ability in all its four years. Class sponsors are
Miss Lu C. Gayton and Mrs. Jean Torrance.

affair was the result of hard work by the members of the class.
Witches and goblins really kept everyone in the Halloween spirit.
This class is especially noted for scholastic ability. There are
many future scientists to be found experimenting in the chemistry
and physics laboratories. Not content with scholastic ability alone,
some of the members have become wellfknown as competent
Dramatics and music claim most ofthe time of the future
thespians and musicians. They are also Well represented on the
Student Council, Red Cross, Baton Twirling, and numerous other
cxtrafcurricular activities. With the able leadership of their oflif
cers the faculty sponsors, Mrs. Ruth Waldeck and Mr. Everett
Misunas, this class cannot help but stand out in the Atomic Age
that is to come.

.T.H.S. can be proud of its junior class, lt is not only one of the
largest classes, but also one of the most eofoperative. During the
basketball season they sponsored a dance. The Junior Prom, however,
headed by Georgia Green, was the most outstanding event. The theme of
this ball was Candy Lane, and the decorations, supervised by Tommy john,
transformed the gym into a fairyland of candy canes.
This class of outstanding scholars is not only studious, but also eager
to participate in extrafcurricular activities. The class is well represented
in sports and has helped bring fame to the teams of W.T.H.S, Members
of this class have had experience in governing through Student Councilg
they have shown leadership and ability, and during the rest of their high
school days will lead their class to still greater heights,

ITH two years of school finished the Sophomore A class is looking forward to the
next two years. With the help of their sponsors, Mr. Herbert Caine and Mrs.
Ruby Kirk McLean, and class oflicers Eileen Norberg, Dick Cglesby, Marilyn Fiedler,
and Bill Moore.
The 2A's, now 3B's, staged an allfschool dance called the Paris Prance which
proved to be a huge success. Charmion Randolph was general chairman of the dance
and cofchairman of the Junior Prom which during the second semester they took a
hand in planning. The class helped transform the gym into a candy lane from which
the theme of the prom was derived.
October 26, 1946 will be remembered by the Sophomores as the date of their class
party. A program was given by the actors and actresses of the class. There was
dancing in the gym, followed by refreshments in the cafeteria.
Although this is a small class, it excels in many fields. Maurice Hall and Ronald
Emmerick are two of the class leaders on the swimming teamg while Bob Schumaker,
Kenny Rienback, George Holland, Dick Richardson, and Bill Moore showed their
ability on the FroshfSoph football team.
Carol Koehler and Dolores Wilson were members of the Annual Staff this year.

June, 1949 Class, Happy Sophomores
" E glad you are a Sophomore," has been the slogan of the Sophomore B Class, This
class, out to defy superstition, sponsored the "Lucky 13" dance on Friday the
13th, to celebrate the basketball victory over Proviso. They danced to the music of
George Mink1er's orchestra, who opened the evening by playing L'Let's Have Fun
Tonight". Everyone did.
Handling the executive duties for the class are Bill Baddaker, president, Doris
Leith, vice president, and Virginia Ano, secretaryftreasurer. Miss Ella Clark and Mr.
Howard Annis, class sponsors, are backing the group in every way possible and helping
them to become better students of W.T.H.S.i I
Already on their Way to fame in football are Adolph Jerdee, Chuck Freise, and
Del Kapter. In basketball Jack Adams, and Gene Payne paved their Way into the
spotlight. David Spriggs and Bob Mertes played on the Varsity team and the Sopho-
mores were proud of them. We expect to see more Sophomores on the Varsity team
The class party, 'which was held in March, was a huge affair with entertainment,
refreshments, and fun for all.

Not satished to be merely onlookers, one of the first things this group did was to hold their class
party. Games, a program, dancing, and refreshments provided a delightful evening to several hundred
participants. Its success was their reward. for good class spirit and initiative, With this party chalked
up as their first success, the group, with its brand new ideas, promises to climb the ladder of success

Ellen Tidy and lxlrs. Ruth Norris.
The freshmen were well represented in many extra curricular activities of W.T.H.S. In Froshf
