THE PIONEER TOLLESTON HIGH SCHOOL GARY, INDIANA 1952Every play owes its success, or failure, to its story, its producers, directors, and actors. The very production of the play it- self is assured by its backers, or its "an- els”. Such a play is about to be presented. The story of the play is one that never loses its appeal, for it is about real live people and the situations in which they find themselves. The play is divided into acts portraying the life of a high school student as it was lived from the freshman year to the seniorLis tea as producers of the play are Super- intendent of Schools Charles Lutz, Assis- tant Superintendent Dana Whitmer, Principal James Standley, and Assistant Principal Henry Rowland. Directing the play are the teachers of Toll- eston and the parents whose children are the story and the stars. The backers, or "angels” of this produc- tion are the Board of School Trustees, Assis- tant Superintendent Ralph Muller, the citi- zens of the Tolleston community, and the citizens of the City of Gary.COMMUNITY The Tolleston community has progressed greatly in the last few years. Although many of the old buildings are still in use, new ones are being added steadily, The Tolleston Centennial was a gala affair held for one week in July. During this week there was much excitement with parades, street dances, fire- works, pageants presented every night, and picnics. All of the women hod to belong to the "Sisters of the Swish" and the men to the "Brothers of the Brush” or else they were penalized in the "kan- garoo court" held several times a week. That a wonderful week to remember! Three churches which a majority of Tolleston students attend are Sacred Heart Church, St. John’s Lutheran Church, and Westminster Presbyterian Church. Other churches in our community attended by our students are Tolleston Christian Church, and Calvary Lutheran Church. The Pudd Plant which was constructed just a few years ago produces automobile parts. Although the Dari-Maid is patronized by a large percentage of high school students, other members of the community find it an enjoyable eating place. "Tah, Rah, Rah, Boom, Te-ay!" Sacred Heart Church St. John’s Lutheran ChurchTolleston Dari-Maid Westminster Presbyterian Church“Rlue Riders of Tolleston !” The amusements of the school are enjoyed by both the students and the teachers working together. The Donkey Basketball game which was held in Memorial Aud- itorium in February proved to be a rip-roaring game. The Dari-Maid has always been a favorite eating place for Tolles- ton students at lunchtime as well as after games and dances. When the lunch hour rolls around, the boys’ gym was used as a lunch room for the boys. In order to boost the team’s mor- ale, enthusiastic girls made posters not only for the sectionals but also for season games. The old building was given the new look w hen the painters redec- orated all the rooms. The Tolleston basketball team was jubilant after becoming Gary’s “Sectional Champs’’ for the first time. Again this year the mixed chorus joined with the concert band for the annual spring concert. SCHOOL “that’ll YOl have??’’ "Ummm, Good!!!’’ 6 Km Ardent artists!’ "The sky’s the limit! i» Pulline the heart strings! It was nothing, Coach! "Music bv the angels and lyrics by the Lord!"Guidance Tolleston High School was the first school in Gary to originate the guidance and extra-curricular program. As a matter of fact, Tolleston, since 1948, has been the only Gary high school to conform to the state ruling of fifty- five minute periods. This resulted not in a longer school day but a shorter one — to the eternal blessing of both students and tea- chers. Each Monday, during the Guidance hour at 2:30, fresh- men and sophomores remained in their home rooms to discuss topics useful to them in their school and social lives. Occasionally speakers and movies helped to sup- plement discussions. Juniors and seniors spent Wednesdays in their home rooms. Their discussions were based on such topics as controlling their emotions, going to college, and secur- ing and holding jobs. "Our Guidance leaders?” 8HOME ROOM ACTIVITIES After three years of the homeroom system innovation, students and teachers alike have appreciated its merits. During this homeroom hour, the last hour of the school day, the teachers have had the opportunity to meet with the clubs which they sponsor, give make-up tests to students who have been ill or who need help, or catch up on regular class work. The students have liked the homeroom system since they were able to attend cfub meetings of their choice, get extra work or help from the teachers, or spend the hour studying. Naturally this has been a decided advantage, for it permitted active participation in school activities leaving after school time for part-time work, study, or leisure. "Ready! Aim! Fire!"

Standley, Principal; Mr. Henry Rowland, Ass’c. Principal. The administration of the Gary School Sys- tem consists of five members of the school board; Mr. John Davies, Mr. Arlie Premo, Rev. J. Claude Allen, Mr. Emery Radanish, and Mr. Joseph A. Luckey to whom falls the res- ponsibility of establishing school policy which is ably enforced by Superintendent Charles D. Lutz, and his two assistants Mr. Dana Whitmer and Mr. Ralph Muller. To Mr. James W. Standley and Henry Row- land, principal and assistant principal of Toll- eston, fall the task of carrying out board pol- icies within Tolleston School and creating harmony and cooperation between teacher, par- ent, and the community. Mr. Ralph Muller, Ass’t. Superinten- dent; Mr. Charles D. Lutz, Superinten- dent; Mr. Dana Vhitmer, Ass’t. Super- intendent. BOARD OF EDUCATION Mr. John Davies, President; Mr. Arlie Premo, Reverend J. Claude Allen, Mr. Emery Badanish, Mr. Joseph Luckey. 14SECRETARIAL FORCE High School Office Staff Miss Joan Kish, Mrs. Doroty Gaski, Mrs. Elaine Denta. Mrs. Gladys McCroskey, school nurse, tended to the cuts and bruises, administered tuberculosis patch tests, gave hearing tests, and kept track of the ills and ails of the en- tire Tolleston student body and its neighboring grade schools, W ashington, Ivanhoe, and the Ivanhoe Project. To Mrs. Ida Magioudis, school welfare worker, fell the huge task of keeping tab on the attendance records of the students, of having conferences with students and parents, and issuing work permits to those students finding remun- erative- employment. The high school office staff was composed of Mrs. Doro- thy Gaski and Miss Joan Kish, who replaced Mrs. Elaine Denta in February. They had the job of making out the pro- grams for the students and keeping records of the school’s finances. In the grade school office Mrs. Bette Korwek and Miss Dolores Slys took charge of the enrollment, requisitions, and the distribution of lockers.

English Mrs. Mary Jeffries, Mrs. Martha Dilley, Mrs. Virginia Moffatt, Miss Julia Baran. 16Social Studies Miss Anna Marsh Mr. Charles V ise Mr. Donald Little As fitting directors of such a great play, the teachers have given unstintingly of their knowledge and time. They have taught during regular class time and in spare time if nec- essary. They encouraged their stu- dents to want the most of life and tried to prepare them for their de- sires. Almost every teacher in the high school was sponsor or chaperone for school organizations. It was difficult to say whether teacher or student w'as more seriously inter- ested in these extra-curricular ac- tivities. Many of our teachers were excel- lent examples of the meaning of school spirit. They not only preach- ed its meaning but lived it by atten- ding pep sessions and athletic events. Although teachers’ meetings at Tolleston School were not burden- ous, problems were many. The maj- ority of problems centered not a- round what they could do for them- selves but what more they could do for the students to make more successful lives for them, to make "stars” of them.

The P.T.A. sponsored and partici- pated in many service projects. One such project was a round table discus- sion on the merits and demerits of the homeroom system. The panel leading the discussion consisted of Mr. J. S. Standley, principal; Mr. Henry Rowland, assistant principal; several teachers, and students. One of the biggest projects of the year was the series of leadership mee- tings, held once a week from January- 23 to February 13. Jst Row: Mrs. T. Little, Recording Secretary; Mrs. D.

The purpose of the Tolleston School Advisory Council, which originated in 1937, is to work with the principal in contributing helpful ideas for the well- being of the school. Meetings of the council were held the third Monday of every month at the Dari-Maid. To finance their annual project of giv- ing a gift to each graduating senior, members of the council and teachers contributed recipes for a cook book that was sold to Tolleston housewives. Also during the year, members of the Advisory Council made a tour of the nearby Standard Oil Company in Whiting, and visited the Olson Rug Company of Chicago. Mrs. G.

Boos- ters chaperone band trips, assist in making arrangements for the annual band spring concert, and distribute tickets for said concert. By holding bunco parties and raf- fles, the members have been a great financial aid to the band. Band Boosters are parents of past and present band members, and, as such, their interest and loyalty are unfailing.

Some can’t wait while others begin to reminisce about their high school careers. They begin to think about the proms, G. A. A. ban- quets, and military balls. They also think about the many dances, football and basketball games which they attended during their four years of high school. Thinking about the teachers, they decide that maybe some of them weren’t so bad after all. They think about the students left in school - - the freshmen, the sophomores, juniors. They wonder if they will lose contact with many since some will go to college, others to work while still others will be getting married. For almost everyone, high school has been swell, but now it is time to go out into the world, ith a tear in their eye they received their dip- lomas ready to seek their fate in the world. 5-PUBLICATIONS tPIONEER Copywriters Barbara Brown, Ruth Romanchek, Joan Shaw . Editor and Business Manager Jerry Snyder, Patricia Woodworth Co-Editor and Co-Sponsor Keith Downey, Martha Di 1 ley The Pioneer, the yearbook of Tolleston School, has grown from a cardboard-hacked edition to a highly classified book. Its staff strives constantly to improve the book and to keep in mind the essentials of a good yearbook. A good yearbook depicts through the pictures, and their records, a day by day account of a school year from beginning to end. This account should include not only social events and organizations but also classroom ac- tivities and studies; not only school affairs but also those of the community, particularly as they affect the school. Devoting its time "merely” to the make-up of the book, the staff worked tirelessly and end- lessly to put out a yearbook of which Tolleston and the Pioneer staff could be justifiably proud.

A favorite column with the students of the school was the one in which they were able to voice their opinions and "gripes.” Often these worthwhile opinions resulted in action benefit- ing everyone. To keep in touch with outside news and events the exchange editor kept a lively cor- respondence with other exchange editors in and around Gary. Since a self-supporting, growing newspaper is always in need of new and better equipment, the Tolly Times staff found it necessary to raise money for such equipment. Through two dances, "The October Cotillion" and the "Leap Year Frolic" the staff was able to purchase a new mimeograph stand combination and a file cabinet. Editor Jane Keeney 63Act IV MUSIC CONCERT TRUMPETS Background: M. Downey, R. Grennes, A. Yokshas, G. Cunningham, R. Vicceli, B. Hydo. Foreground: S. Suleman.' The Tolleston Cencert Band, a very active group of musicians, this year, as every year, had a very full schedule. Fifty-one of the band's members participated in the annual Northern Indiana Solo and Ensemble Contest which was held at Merrillville High School, Merrillville, Indiana. One of the requisites of music is enjoyment. The band ac- complished this doubly on the two "field" trips to Hines Mem- orial Hospital in Chicago, and to Parramore Tuberculosis Sani- tarium in Crown Point, Indiana. Both patients and band members were made happier by the excursions. Highlighting the many months of tedious practice were partici- pation in city parades, graduation exercises, and the annual spring concert, an event long anticipated by parents, members of t’jc b»nd, and students in school.

The Girls’ Chorus, high school girls, met as a daily class. Their accomplishments were pre- sented in a spring program at Tolles- ton and at the Music Festival, given by the Gary Schools. Also during the year, various mem- bers of the chorus participated in the Northern Indiana State Band, Orches- tra, and Vocal Association held at Merrillville, Indiana. A social event, not at all in the line of duty but a financial aid, was a No- vember dance called "The Jack and Jill Jean Jump.” Officers B. Cole, President; C. Harrington, Vice- President; I.

The Boys’ Glee Club, a group of boys who like to sing and whose voi- ces blend so well together, were again responsible for giving pleasure to the whole school. On Christmas the boys shared their voices with everyone by singing the familiar Christmas carols. Again at Easter time the peace of the religious season was expressed through a program of Easter music. 1st Row: S. Wixon, B. Narcy, W. Wallace, E. Vasquez, P. Trella. 2nd Row: A. Murphy, F.

The plays were "Family Circle," "Our Miss Brooks," " e Shook the Family Tree," "You Can’t Take It With You," and "Murder in Rehearsal." Just before the Christmas vacation, the beautiful and inspiring Christmas pageant was presented for the sixth annual year. "It happens every spring!" "Watch for your cue!" "Lights! Camera! Action!"■ A great responsibility rested with the students in the audio-visual department. They operated the movie ma- chines and were in charge of ordering all films used by all departments of Tolleston. On the audio side were tape recorders, wire recorders, recording machines, and a beloptican machine to operate and keep in tip-top condition. This year a new policy in which one operator for each hour any of the audio-visual equipment was used, was instituted. Each year there has been an increasing number of stu- dents interested in learning to become operators. Al- though most of the operators were boys, many girls were expressing a desire to learn the "trade” ... a useful vocation. "Put a nickel in it!!" "Mechanical Masters!" AUDIO-VISUAL "Scotch tape does everything!!!"DRAMATEERS The Dramateers is a dramatics organ- ization, which, this year, consisted of nine members who have had three or four years of dramatics. In order to qualify as a "Dramateer", one must have had a leading role in several plays presented in the auditorium. To signify membership, students in the organization purchased pins with the Dramateer emblem. "Gifted Gerbick gets brazen Brantner!” Mr. Gerbick’s 8:20 dramatics class."Music up and out."

Interested students at Tolleston were taught the fundamentals of radio and the importance, therefore, of public speaking. To make it an entirely original project and to teach another imponant angle of ra- dio, students were required to author their own scripts. In active participation the Radio Club appeared six times on the Pepsi PepClub over station WWCA. The members have felt that the club helped to inspire their imaginations, improve their grammar and their writing ability, to build up poise and assurance, and to interest them in a professional future.

Another reason for the Spanish Club was to give the members a better knowledge of Spanish and Mexican literature, government, language and customs. Putting to use their acquired knowledge, the "Spaniards” gave playlets and speeches in Spanish. 2nd Row: J. Shoes’fi'£ ™sj , S.

As usual the aim of the club was twofold: eo gain a more thorough knowledge of Roman life, customs, and language in order to under- stand better the practical and cultural value of Latin; and to interest our fellow students. For the interest of the students were the sales of Christmas cards, in addition to the Christmas party and the "Snow Frolic”, which were of in- terest to the entire student body. 83STUDENT COUNCIL Officers: Mr. E. Goforth, Sponsor; R. Hudecek, Vice-President; J. Shakes, Pres- ident; J. Rappatta, Secretary; J. Fox, Treasurer. Every Tuesday and Thursday, during the home room hour, 2:30 P. M., the members of the Student Council met. These members represented the student body and were elected by each home room. The contributions of the Student Council were many. Quotations dealing with school spirit were purchased and placed in classrooms. To add to the attractive- ness of the school grounds, shrubbery was bought. Af- ter a great deal of effort a school name sign was pur- chased and placed on the new wing of the school buil- ding. As a finishing touch to a long run and a successful year, the Student Council members treated themselves to visiting the Tribune Tower and Swift’s Packing Com- pany in Chicago.

Every Tuesday, from seven to nine p. m., for a nom- inal fee, every student in high school was able to dance to his heart's con- tent. A welcome treat from the work day, students were given the oppor- tunity to meet each other on strictly a social basis. Social amenities were observed and and new dance steps were learned to the music of the best orchestras — via recordings on the nickleodeon. These recordings were purchased through the fees of the members and auspices of the Student Council, the school gov- erning body, in charge of the Social Club. "Where are the men??" 85Sponsor Miss Olive Leskow "The Shuttersnappers”, as the name connotes, is a photography club. It was organized for the purpose of offering a new hobby to students and to meet the growing demand of interest in photog- raphy. The club played its part in teaching to its members the basic principles of photography as a hobby or as a profession. Club members not only snapped pictures but also learned to develop them and to enlarge them. All Shuttersnappers had a field day photo- graphing girls entered in the annual "queen” contest. From the pictures they chose the girl most photogenic, and she was crowned at a Val- entine Dance. CAMERA CLUB Foreground: J. Snyder, Secretary; S. Leon, Trea- surer. Background: P.

To acquaint the faculty with the books, maps, recordings, and other material now available in the library, a tea was held. On the social side of the agenda was a hay- ride and a Lil Abner and Daisy Mae dance. A very commendable plan was the one to send books to the children of Europe; thus each mem- ber of the Library Club was able personally to plav a part in the rehabilitation of Europe. 1st Row: A.

In hopes to boost the school spirit the cheerleaders started Tolleston’s first organized cheering block, the Raiderettes. The girls adopted the outfit of blue jeans, blue sweat shirts, white sail- or hats, and white gloves. The girls succeeded in their initial objective, to give the school spirit a lift. During the football season, the Raiderettes worked very co-opera- tively with the cheerleaders and the concert band to present effective programs. 88 ’Rub-a-dub-dub-whoo-ee!!!"

A comparatively new organization, the Home Economics Club, was added to the roster of Tolleston organizations. Meeting in the home economics room, members of the club naturally discussed interior decora- ting and learned the fine art of cooking, an art not restricted to only the feminine set; for the club included one masculine member. To put into practice a few theories, the club held a "Chinese Ball." At this affair dragons lurking along the walls of the ballroom were evidences of the colorfulness of the Orient in an interior decorating scheme. 90DEPARTMENT OF MILITARY SCIENCE TACTICS Officers Lt.

S. and T., originally recognized by the initials R. O. T. C., is, of course, a national military organization for boys in high school and college. Boys receive training in handling men, instructing, and in taking nec- essary orders. It is upon ability to meet the above requirements that rank is given. Once a month the Tolleston unit and its hon- orary colonel, Miss Pat Woodworth, had a per- sonal military science and tactics inspection. In the spring all high schools with D. M. S. and T. units participate in the annual federal inspection held on the Tolleston football field. At this time medals were awarded and the "honor” school named. Tolleston was the only school to be thus designated. 91 .t 7st Pi»too„t Off,®”0"; »• fi'ij R A1 T»"y. r Sf°ur, k.JxJ tl1’ . P?;' nukur T.’Jr?0" t'ad'r0 0’ W , pc, ’«■ . c. 0 b - B. ir F 1 i-t. ir; .

The objectives of the G.A.A. are to train girls in enjoyable leisure time activities and to develop a democratic spirit by learning to work and play in groups. An outstanding event of the year, the initia- tion of new members accomplished both objec- tives in providing a social event and in having the older girls act as "big” sisters for the younger girls. It was the task of the "big” sister to help the initiate become acquainted with the other students in high school. Closing the year was the G.A.A. formal ban- quet. It was at this time that awards, trophies, and letters were given to the girls earning them for having best fulfilled the objectives of the Girls’ Athletic Association.

FOOTBALLJohn Zavacky Edward Cuba Ronald Newcome Eugene Rumford The Tolleston football team, while not completely victorious, was a rugged, hard-fighting team—fighting hard a- gainst each defeat and harder for each victory. Although the boys and Tolleston School were unhappy at the transfer to Horace Mann School of Coach Edward Herbert, who had coached them so well and loyally for eight years; they were fortunate in obtaining as their new coach, August Boto, a former graduate of Tolleston. After attending Tolleston High School, Coach Boto went on to Tulane Univer- sity in New Orleans, Louisiana; Miss- ouri State in Springfield, Missouri, and the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri.

The first game was lost, and the team was just an average team that played an average ball game. James Bartal After the Holiday Tournament the boys began perking up and playing good ball. Out of the next thirteen games played, they won nine, lost four. This year Tolleston played in only one overtime game--— a- gainst Valparaiso on January 15, when they lost by one point. Tolleston went on to win the Gary Sectionals but lost to Valparaiso in the regionals. After playing all season games and the tournament sectional and regional games, the team ended up with a season record of fifteen wins and nine losses. 110 John LeboskieGerald l.ach John Koches Sheldon Wolfe Arthur Equihua Charles Libich Lloyd Novak Tolleston 37 Edison 44 Tin 24 39 50 42 36 34 33 Valparaiso 35 Horace Mann 47 Emerson 50 Rensselaer 47 E.C.

Although Tolleston had played in seventeen previous sectionals, this was the first time that Tolleston had won one. In the Regionals, in Hammond, Indiana, on the follow- ing Saturday, Tolleston was pitted against Valparaiso of Valparaiso, Indiana. The Raiders got off to a very slow start. However, by displaying the same poise and coolness with which they won the sectionals, the Raid- ers came within two points of qualifying for the evening game. The loss was heartbreaking, but all of Tolleston was proud and grateful to the team and the coach for making a dream come true . . . GARY'S SECTIONAL CHAMPION! 112 On February 27, 28, and March 1, the Gary Sectionals were held at the Memorial Auditorium. Who was the ex- pected winner? Froebel, or perhaps Roosevelt. Who was the winner? TOLLESTON ! In Tolleston’s first sectional game, Tolleston played East Gary’ Edison. The game was expected to be a walk away for Tolleston, but the only thing that saved Toll- eston from defeat was proficiency at the free throw line. In the evening game against Horace Mann, the Raiders did a sharp about face from their afternoon game. They hit fourteen out of thirty shots from the field and con- verted twelve out of fourteen free throws. By winning the two games on Friday, February 27, Tolleston qualified for the Saturday games. The first game was against Froebel. A slow and deliberate con- trol game won for Tolleston. The Saturday night game was the play-off for the Gary sectionals. Tolleston was playing for the championship.Abad, Lou Conda Acevedo, Antulio 92 Acevedo, Joseph 36 Acevedo, William 92 Aimutis, Gerald 30, 91, 92 Aimutis, William 36, 91, 107 Alsup, Everett 93
