My compliments to the students and faculty members responsible for this excellent publication. Considerable effort and planning is neces- sary for the successful completion of a project of this kind. l note with pleasure that you have again reached the same high standards set for you by your predecessors. --C. G. Burns. This Annual continues a tradition built up over a period of almost 30 years. During this time thousands of young men and women have left Northwestern halls and class rooms to take their places in the voca- tional and civic affairs of our city and nation. The classes of January and June 1944 are worthy successors of an illustrious group of alumni. My best wishes to them for a suc- cessful and happy life. floseph G. Wolber. C 'YY S. A. CI.OL'GII R. C. STOLI. .X, C. li. CARR Y. FOX l., ORTH K. IJOHERTY Again we counselors have said farewell to another January class and are about to say it to another June class. We have planned, worked, and played with you for three years, and have watched you grow into young womanhood and young manhood. Our interest in you is such that it cannot be terminated by your graduation, so through the years our interest in each of you will con- tinue: and we hope you will ever think of us as your friends. -Vera Fox. Page Five ge Six PIIHEWIJHIJ When Father Time shook down the hour glass and sent 1944 on his merry way to Earth, he equipped the sorrowful, little war baby with a set of Cupid's bows and arrows and named him "Leap Year." The advent of Leap Year allows the girls to openly beguile and chase their men. In this war year of 1944, the boys can run faster and farther than usual because their service in the armed forces carries them far and wide. The pages of this year's Norwester depict the far-flung places to which the girl must travel in order to catch her man. Cf course, her extensive trip must, for the present, exist in the figments of her imagination. but we're confident that she will, as she always has, gain her objective. Together, they will see the world of to- morrow, which they have planned, built, and fought for, unfold as it unfolds for you on the inspiring double page spread in the back of this yearbook. It will be their world of dreams come true!

DETROIT,1944 Page E ight EW UPPIEE 1 Beauty, efficiency, simplicity-these three mark the recent renovation of North- western's main office. room 108, first floor, Northwestern Building. A temporary office establishment was situated in room 113 during the remodeling process. when walls were ripped down and rebuilt, paint brushes were dabbed on exposed surfaces, and a beautiful linoleum was laid. In fact, the entire office was in a constant hum-drum for several months. The results are gratifying, however, for the Northwestern office is now another of the Colts' "pride and joys." The rooms are neat, clean, simple, and attractive, affording the staff, faculty, and students a better place in which to execute business. 5. IIHWESTEH EHITIJHS JAMES REASON EDITOR-IN-CHIEF GEORGE BALCH ASSISTANT EDITOR On the broad shoulders of Jim Reason fell the task of producing a wartime "Norwester" which would conform with the printer's limitations and still be the peppy, up-to-the-minute yearbook that is the heritage of Northwestern. With the assistance of six capable staff heads, the goal was achieved. Numerous trips to Craine's, the engraver, and the printer, plus hours of dummy copy setting and proofreading were the fate of Jim Reason and George Balch. To Literary Editor Alice Jorgensen went the responsibility of assigning, planning, and correcting all the written material, and from her hands it found its way to Stenographic Editor Margaret Kaplanian, where it was transformed into clear legible copy. Art Hasty handled the all-important circulation department and Ad- vertising Manager Mary Holmberg went out after ads and brought them in like a veteran! Betty Starr deservesthe credit for the stacks of art work which so clearly expresses the theme of the Norwester. These seven people worked together as a uniform team. None are happier than they to see the dream of the "Norwester" become an actuality.

An all-important group in Northwestern's round of activities, spirited both in service and social work. is the ever popular Girls' Business Club. The fall oflicers, Carol Hoeft. president: Wilma Wilson, vice-president: Elizabeth Lundin, secretary: and Barbara Doty, treasurer, were instrumental in preparing the Thanksgiving and Christmas boxes for the needy and the servicemen. The spring officers. Carolyn Meehan, president: Eliza- beth l.undin, vice-president: Jean Johnston. secretary: and Margaret Kaplanian. treasurer. succeeded in having the gals learn to do a little 'Aknittin' for Britain" so that the club can soon boast a completed afgan. Miss Ruth Randall was the faculty sponsor. TI III. The "Comitia Romana" sponsored the Pan-linguistic Festival and the Junior Classical League, of which the Latin Club recently became a member. Both activities were highly successful. These added attractions are responsible for the large membership and are lasting symbols of the interest in this Society. Miss I. Black is the faculty sponsor. Fall term officers were Lucille Richardson. president: Bill Doss. vice-president: Barbara Carr, secretary: Don Bullington, treasurer: Bill Lawson. entertainment chairman: and Carol Hunt, program chairman. Spring term officers were Carol Hunt, president: Martin Malter, vice-president: Miriam Kim. secretary: Edgar Smith, treasurer: Evert Von Moltke, entertainment chairman: and Lois Hilgendorf, program chairman.

'Los Leones Espanolesf' the official name of the Spanish Club. means "The Spanish Lions," It sounds impressive. and it's an appropriate name for an up-and-coming group. The club is designed to further interest in the Spanish and South-American languages. art, music and ways of life. Officers for the Pall term were Karl Farrar. president: Lois Hilgendorf, vice-president: Marguerite Brauer, secretary: and Pat Ecklein. treasurer. In January, officers elected were Josephine Larsen, president: Pat Ecklein, vice-president: Mary Kaprilian, secretary: and Pat Ecklein. treasurer. The club's co-sponsors were Miss Kahn and Mrs. Adams. PELI. IIHIIIH The Choir did much to further Northwestern's standing this year by singing for many organizations. The Lion's Club, The Kiwanis Club, and the Rotary Club were but a few. The Christmas concert, presented at Cass Tech. climaxed a successful term. After "polishing up" for the new term, the Choir really got under way by adding many important dates to their calendar. Among these were the opening meeting for the Midwest Health Education Conference, a radio broadcast, and the Michigan Theatre Program on Good Friday. At the June commencement exercises. the Choir sang the "Song of Victory" by Fletcher. Mrs. Bernice R. Wagoner is the director.

Page Twenly The group responsible for the delightful dramas and sensational broadcasts heard over Northwestern's Public Address System is none other than the Radio Dramatics Club. Its members have charge of giving regular school announcements and presenting all pro- grams. Holidays and special events always find the club ready with a suitable broadcast. The sponsor for the Fall term was Mr. Ford. Oflicers were Virginia Moore. president: Jim Reason, vice-president: Kay Manders, secretary: Larry Daly, treasurer. In January, the gavel passed to Jim Reason. Kay Manders was vice-president: Dot Highlield. secretary: and Josephine Larsen, treasurer. Miss Greene took over the sponsor's duties. SEB IEE III. Northwestern's corridors are remarkably void of loitering students. Here, the Service Club may be commended for doing a difficult job well. Miss Esther Kennedy, successor to Miss Lydia Holtman, former faculty sponsor, has handled her new duties with surprising ease. Replacing the fall term officers, Jane Blair. president: Helen Cudmore, vice-president: and Sophia Salaskis, secretary, is a new system constituting a directing committee. The Service Club's duties also include sponsoring the sale of Northwestern book-covers. stickers, athletic tickets and pins. It is responsible for the trophy arrangements in the showcases and for guiding visitors and new students. 'four l"irs! Rim-: J. Reason lx an tlers, ,l. Lalrsen. .Suomi ml li. Daly.

The letters, P.A.R. stand for Public Address, Auditorium, and Radio. This staff has many fine technicians as well as other pupils just interested in fundamentals of radio. Some of the varied duties are engineering programs for Record, handling all movies and radio programs, staging programs. and supervising the technical part of all gaduation exercises.

A fairly new addition to the Music Department is the Boys' Glee Club. This organiza-- tion is in its infancy, but promises to become a valued asset to the department. Already it has shown signs of becoming another Fred Waring chorus. There are many boys in the beginning classes who are looking forward to joining the Glee Club next semester. Mrs. Bernice R.

Whenever sharp red and gray sweaters were seen Hitting about the halls, we knew that the folks in question were members of the super-spirited Pep Clubf This club promoted school spirit and fostered many peppy new yells. Sparkie, the red and gray Colt, made her debut as the club's ward and put in her appearance at all athletic events. The Fall semester saw Verna Curtis as president: Mary Kopis, vice-president: Georgina Chames, secretary: and Barbara James, treasurer. In January, the gavel passed to Mary Kopis, who was assisted by Lois Long. Ruth Ellison was secretary. and Barbara Allen, treasurer. "Pepper-upper-plus" was Coach Sam Bishop. the faculty sponsor. What is the seat of study and learning in Northwestern? The library. of course. Under the direction of Miss Winton and Mrs. Murdoch who are assisted by a large staff, the library serves efficiently hundreds of pupils with their studies. Service is made possible by the fundamental course in library science, given to every staff member. He becomes acquainted with reference books and other phases of library work which enables him to answer many queries and do the routine work. The staff member learns much which will be useful later. while, at the same time, earning high school credit. Those who excell become student supervisors. Page Twenly-six i rf..

This semester, the girls have gone "all out" to provide good music throughout the school. Their melodious songs have gladdened many a heart in these troubled times. The Glee Club has sung on numerous occasions for various activities, clubs and organizations, These public appearances were highlighted in March. when the girls presented a beautiful St. Patrick's Day program on Station WXYZ for the School Music Hour, This same program was presented for the Night School graduates. on March 22, at the request of Mr. Wolber, principal. The soloists for the broadcast were Jean Alla, Ethel Duckworth, Jean Johnston, Kay Manders and Sheilah Wilmot. IVIIJIJEH I-IN EEL Rythm! Grace! Technical skill! Imagination! These are the requisites for member- ship in the Modern Dance Club! Every Tuesday afternoon these young ladies combined to form a group of well-poised individuals and composed dances of new and interesting patterns. So superlative were their efforts, that they were chosen as the one group to represent Detroit high school girls' activities at the Physical Education Teachers' Con- vention. ln addition. they frequently contributed to programs at Northwestern. During the fall term. Doris Perdue called the sessions to order. assisted by Rose Marie Moore. secretary. In January, Helen Weidman assumed the presidents duties: Rose Marie con- tinued as secretary.

Margie Thomson was president: Bill Schmidt, vice-president: Rosa Marie Hix. secretary: and Marjorie Porter, treasurer.

The initiation, with its tasty food and impressive paddling. was enjoyed by all who participated . . . fit says herej. Per usual. the "N" Club sponsored a successful dance with the Ci.A.A. Fall term ofiicers were Hal Pink, president: Dick Dresser, vice-president: Ronald Teasley, secretary: and Harry Ramsey, treasurer. In January, officers elected were Don Miller, president: Alex Clelland. vice-president: Hal Pink. secretary: and Harry Ramsey. treasurer. With Coach Jim Demaree leading the way, the "N" Club can be expected to do big things. Upon entering Northwestern High School, every Coltette joins the Girls' Athletic Association, known informally as the G.A.A. The Executive Board consists of three representatives from each graderoom, all team captains, and the four officers. This year, Lois Johnston, wielded the gavel, assisted by Phyllis O'Hagan. Anne MacKenzie handled the minutes and Jean Alla, the treasury. Keeping the girls "in the groove and on the move" was Mrs. Mildred Dunn. Two evening dances were undertaken with the co-operation of the "N" Club. The traditional G.A.A. welcome to the freshman girls inspired them to replace the girls who graduate from the realm of Northwestern sports. Page Twenty nine I Ri l Il l":r.vt Ruru: l' U llu jolmstun.

IQIHWESTEH ST FF The Martindale Building, room l8O, laid the scene for the work on this year's Nor- wester. Before the big job of organizing. planning. and ultimately printing and puba lishing the yearbook was completed. the editors began to look dubiously at each other and say with that dead pan look of solemn faith . . . "Don't worry. we'll have a yearbook . . . someday." That Udead pan look of solemn faith" was the determination and perseverance behind the dream that made the "Norwester" possible. Working against shortages of material. labor. and time. the "someday" Hnally arrived and the staff can proudly place the I0-44 A'Norwester" in the hands of its staunch and foremost supporters, the students and faculty of Northwestern High School. Editor Jim Reason's life was a jumble of deadlines. proofreading. and dates twith the engraver and printerl. but he instructed his subordinates capably and well. His load was made much lighter by the debut of his assistant. George Balch. that wise magician who specialized in bringing back to reality the precious articles and pictures that so frequently were . . . shall we say, misplaced. Betty Starr went quietly crazy while her ambitious Art Staff labored and slaved and finally produced the expressive art work of this book. The folks on the "Lit." Staff learned how to make tracks when Alice Jorgensen arrived on the scene 'cause she grabbed articles first and explained second. The steady pound-pound-pound of the typewriter was a constant undercurrent in the life of Stenographic Editor Margaret Kaplanian, who de- ciphered the hentracks and led her staff in typing and assembling the material for the printer. The light bill at the Hasty household rose higher and higher while Art sat up far into the wee hours counting stubs, stubs. and still more stubs. Mary Holmer seriously considered applying for special shoe rations, what with trotting around from store to store for ads. They're precious because they bring in "The tin we love to touch," in other words. money. Supervising and always ready to lend a helping hand were the faculty sponsors. Mr. Thomas F. Weiskotton. Mr. Jules Trattner. Mrs. Emma Rosow, and Miss Betty Kahn. Through the concerted efforts of these people. the yearbook grew, the pages were filled. and the book took on the brightness and color which characterizes the students and activities of Northwestern. The faculty put on the pressure. the editors turned on the power. but the staff produced. Ralph Waldo Emerson's "All are needed by each one. Nothing is fair or good alone," never rang truer than it did during the weeks and months that the 'ANorwester" staff worked together and combined their efforts. Withotlt the aid of each department. the publication of a yearbook is impossible. To each goes praise and gratitude for a fine job. well done and to all the people who gave of their time and energy we, the receivers of this yearbook, say "Thank You."

A record year! No greater praise may be spoken than that the outgoing seniors and oflicers have left big shoes to ill indeed.

The "Teddy Gazette," long inexistent news sheet, was revived last fall by co-editors Orval Johnson and Bob Hague. This was continued in the spring term by Alice Jorgensen. Additional activities galore existed in lO2, upholding its standard of NorthWestern's No. l house. Miss Clough deserves a big hand for charting the course for such a fine study hall. MAYER MOORE LEXVALLEX MULLEN BETSY RUSS HU SE Betsy Ross House had her share of honors again! It was out in front in the sale of war stamps. Every school club could boast members from 202. Last September saw Bruce Mayer as president, assisted by Louise Moore. Lorraine Lieder was secretary and Rosalie McLean kept a watchful eye on the finances. During the Spring term, Max Lewallen held the gavel, with Fred Mullen as vice-president. Mary McMarin proved to be a capable secretary, and Jane Mack was our treasurer. We all thank Miss Katherine Doherty for her grand co-operation and advice throughout the school year.

The same system prevailed during the spring term, but honorary house officers were appointed. These were Harry Ramsey, president: Harold Pink. vice-president: Ida Scales, secretary: and Hazel Shuttleworth, treasurer, Students of Lincoln House responded well to the various drives to aid the war effort and placed well up in the running each week in War Bond and Stamp sales. Mr. R. C. Stoll. counselor, lent his very able support and aid to the students, and his assistance in guiding them was invaluable.

TEAM Three returning lettermen inspired Coach Sam Bishop to mold his team around Captain Alex Clelland at center, and Dick Dresser and Hal Pink in the backfield. After defeating Southeastern and Chadsey, the Colts bowed to the ultimate City Champions. Cooley. Leading 12-7 as the final period began, the tired Hrst team suc- cumbed to the victors 32-12. Victories over Redford. Wilbur Wright, and Southwestern followed. ln the final game. Western triumphed over our fighting eleven, I3-7. A few capable reserves to replace our weary first team at crucial moments, might have led Northwestern to the top. SWI MI TE Northwestern's swimming squad opened its season with a swimmer and a prayer. The swimmer was Don Miller, who, in the Metropolitan League semi-finals, broke a five- year record of 1144.0 in the 150-yard individual medley with a time of l:4l.8. Under the expert leadership of Coach Laury and Captain Henry Lesperance. the mermen got into shape for the City Meet. Going "all out," they placed second with 33 points, being beaten by their perennial rivals, Western, with 38 points. A dinner at Laury Land ended a successful season, and Arnie Pylkas was elected next year's captain. Page Suxly-Iwo l'rum Lrft I Iulflr 1 . lor, U. Bullingtmm, 'l'. Hurriwlge, J.

Cooley defeated the inexperienced Colts in a practice game, 4-1. The ever ambitious Colts then found themselves and won over Wilbur Wright. Western. and Southwestern, before losing to Chadsey in a close 3-2 battle. Al Shaufelburger led the team. going through the season undefeated. The Tennis Team is looking forward to a good Spring season. although Captains Jim Reason and Ken Bussler are the only returning lettermen. TH Eli TEA Coach James Russell, having only an ambitious group of tenth graders with which to launch the indoor track season. molded his aggregation around Captain Ulyses Johnson. sprinters Don Ciodbold and Minus Woodruff, and miler Lloyd Graham. After trimming Western decisively, the Colts lost to Redford in a triangular meet with the "Huskies" and Mackenzie. The track team placed third in the West side meet and is preparing for the city finals. While not the most famous of track teams, We. of Northwestern. are sure that the Colts will uphold our famous tradition of good sportsmanship and fair play! Page 61 vw three l'xr.vt lfnzv: IJ.

TE The Northwestern nine. after a rather dismal previous season, can be looked upon to present a team of high caliber. Led by Captain Dick Dresser, who is ably supported by returning letterman. Ronald Teasley, Hal Pink, John Damiani. and Harry Ramsey. this year's team promises to make amends for last season. Coach Sam Bishop expects a large turnout from the freshman class. Written before the baseball schedule begins. this article can only express the hopes and wishes of every Northwestern student for a suc- cessful year for the Colt baseball team. EHUS5 EUUNTHY TE Captain Al Finn was the only letterman to return to the cross country team. the other lettermen having been called to the colors. The new men who signed up were supported very well. They started slowly in dual meets, but showed the results of hard work, finishing third in the West Side meet and fifth in the city finals, only two points from third. Captain Al Finn and Captain-elect Lloyd Graham did themselves proud and earned fine records during the year. Mr. James Russell was the coach. Page Sixly-four Ifirs! Ruin: J. llnmiun R e ley, H. Pink.

The first game was dropped to Southwestern, but was later forfeited to our worthy Colts! Led by Captain Ronald Teasley and encouraged by Coach Jim Demaree, the boys sailed through the next nine games undefeated and entered the playoffs as champions of the Southwest League. Our fighting Colts eliminated Central, 36-30. and Denby, 3l-28. but the real test came when they faced MacKenzie's strong defensive five. They emerged on the losing end of a 36-25 point score. Captain Teasley's playing earned him a position on the All-City Team! Dunn. paws A . GIRLS' TENNIS TE The Cwirls' Tennis Team faced their schedule with only four veteran players to rely on. Their pep, good will. determination, and the will to win inspired the girls to practice long, hard hours under the broiling sun, until they achieved the technique and skill of good playing. Captain Margaret Kaplanian, and standbys, Lois Johnston. Jean Alla, and Lois Hilgendorf led the way for the inexperienced, but grand girls like Beverly Maruhn, Jean Johnston. Dorothy MacDonald. Dolores Graham, and Margie Coates. Together, they proved themselves capable of fine, fast, and furious playing! lwrst Row: J. jollnstml, I., Ilil gc-nrlorf. M. Kuplzmlzm. ll. Mn rulm, J, Alln.

Graduation had, as usual. robbed the team of expert swimmers. but with enthusiasm, pep. and the able coaching of Mrs. Wiles. the girls developed a team of good standing. Led by Captain Lois Johnston. the swimming mermaids triumphed over Eastern. Redford and Cooley. losing only to Central by eight points. Miss Elsie Watson. the girls' coach. was unable to start the team on their way this year because of an operation which compelled her absence. but under Mrs. Katherine Wiles. the girls mastered their strokes and dives! Hurst, Miss XVutson GIRLS' HUIIHEY TEAM This season. as usual, the Girls' Hockey Team fostered a peppy co-operative spirit and a victorious determination. Miss Elsie Watson. coach. was assisted by Captain Betty Reeder. Out of the five scheduled games, two were won. two were lost. and one was tied, Cooley presenting the stiffest competition. Several of the girls on the team began their hockey careers way back in the lOth grade: but as graduation again will toll many fond farewells. only a few old-timers will be left behind. However. these remaining girls assure Northwestern a top-notch team next fall. e Sr .rl if six lflrxl 1x'n-:ez Xl. 'l'lum1psm1 l,:u'kin, XY. XYei1lc-niunui lilluert Xl lillut-rt X Art A ic sllznl.

Mc- HIHL5' SHETB LL TE!-llVl Led by Captain Dolores Hurst and instructed by Mrs. Mildred Dunn, the girls on the team practiced diligently until they achieved the teamwork required to produce a winning team. Proof came when they went into action, winning against Northern. Redford, Central, Southwestern, and bowing only to MacKenzie with a score of Z0-l9. Pauline Burt, Dolores Hurst, Betty McClymot, and Ella Mae Valentine composed a fighting foursome, for their expert playing proved fatal to their Challengers, The reserve team came through all of the games undefeated, and under the fmeuleader- ship of the newly-elected captain, Pauline Burt, next year insures strong opposition for any contenders "coming 'round" Northwestern way! The Sung nf Winqs I want to fly through the vaults of the shy, And to breathe of the cool, pure air, I want to ride with my God at my side. -For l'm close to my Lord up there. l want to gaze down the star-lit ways That tall me along in their glow: And to know, as I climb out of distance and time, The smallness of things left below. And the strength in it's song as my ship speeds along, Gives me comfort: and something more: It tells me that we.-just we two,-are free, As we've never been free before. It tells me again, in a language that men Bound to earth, never know,-never can. That alone in the sky, just my ship and l Are not just a SHIP, just a MAN. Though in numbers we're two, yet up there in the blue We feel we're one body, one mind. We're away from the crowds up there in the clouds. And we've left earthly worries behind. So. l want to fly through the cool of the sky And gaze o'er the clouds spread so vast, 'Til the time shall arrive for the final dive,- And be close to my Lord 'til the last. -Lt, Joseph D. Coons.

Michigan In order to prosecute a successful war, it is necessary to follow certain definite paths of procedure. There must be methods, men, and money, all of which should be used economically and ef- ficiently. This is likewise true of a life insurance company, if it is to be a success. The company has to have methods, men, and money, and these used with the same degree of care as when fighting a war. The past sixteen years have found us using our resources and men with the keenest possible judgment. So much so until we are able to reorganize our company into a regular Old Line Legal Reserve Life Insurance Company. The new company will write, among others, the following policies: Whole Life, IO-I5-20 Year Pay Life, IO-I5-20 Year Endowments, Endowment at 65 Years. and a number of forms of Juvenile Policies and Group Insurance. The company is sincerely grateful to those policyholders and friends who have helped to bring about this condition. War Bonds Purchased by Great Lakes Wlutual Amount to 3465000.00 CHAS. H.
