The established motto indicative of our school's character is "Re-
sponsibility". An inscribed bronze seal set in the floor of the main foyer
proclaims this fact.
The editors of Emblem 1954 have selected as its theme, the "Major
Functions of Living", as an integral part of the new curriculum program ini-
tiated by the Chicago Public Schools. This theme is also representative
of the philosophy of Chicago Teachers College: a flexible program and a
dynamic philosophy founded on the belief in our responsibilities, as educat-
ors and citizens, to freedom and to ourselves.
eUlLDI^C \ PHILOSOPHY OF EOUC^TIO^
It is a great pleasure to send cordial greetings to the members of the class of 1954.
I congratulate you heartily upon this graduation and upon your choice of a vocation. You
are becoming public servants in a great cause and in a most crucial period of our nation's
history. It is also a period in which the demand for good teachers is overwhelming and in-
Graduates of the Chicago Teachers College have a deserved reputation for excel-
lence. Members of the staff who are constantly concerned with the problem of adequately
staffing our schools will assist in every possibleway to moke teaching an attractive, exciting
career for you. We welcome you to our ranks and feel every confidence that you will suc-
ceed not only in the tasks you are called on to perform, but in achieving a life of happiness
All good wishes in your chosen work.
Benjamin C. Willis
General Superintendent of Schools
"Ideals are like stars; you
will not succeed in touching

them you will reach your des-
— Carl Schurz
College education is not standardized, routine or compulsory;
rather, it is opportunity of many types and at many levels — an invitation
to those who wish to learn. For each individual the invitation is also a
challenge to select wisely, to learn from classes and clubs, books and
people, seminars and sports, laboratory and library, all that the opportun-
ity truly holds.
This is the invitation extended by the Chicago Teachers College for
more than four score years and to future generations yet unnumbered.
To the members of the class of 1954, who have accepted the invitation,
made wise use of their opportunities, and now face with confidence the
challenges of the future, the College offers congratulations and the as-
surance of continued interest in you all.

Inherent to Chicago Teachers College is
the CHICAGO SCHOOLS JOURNAL. The
JOURNAL is edited entirely by members of the
faculty and published by the Board of Educa-
tion primarily for Chicago public school teach-
ers. Since 1906, when it was started as the ED-
UCATIONAL BI-MONTHLY, it has proven to be
an extremely valuable service organ for the
teachers of the Chicago public school system.
The JOURNAL contains descriptions of
work actually carried on in the schools, reviews
of recent books, and articles on various trends
in the field of education including curriculum
subjects and advanced thought in cultural,
social, and technical fields. To date, seven
special area supplements listing teaching ma-
terials have been published.
Circulation includes a multitude of edu-
cational institutions and libraries in every
s:ate in the Union and approximately twenty-
six foreign countries.
Chicago Teacher College students have
access to the JOURNAL regularly; sufficient
copies are published so that each student may
have one. Current issues as well as back
numbers are always available in the Publica-

As with most senior classes, one of the most import-
ant and most anticipated events is the senior prom. The
class of June, 1954 held their prom in the Breakers Room of
the Sherry Hotel on April 23. Dick Long and his orchestra
furnished the music for the evening.
The class also entered a float in the Homecoming
parade. The Senior A's had their first extended experiences
in teaching as half-day instructors.
The big day and culmination of four years at C.T.C. is
commencement, June 15, 1954.

One of the highlights in the memories of members
of the Sophomore A class is Homecoming. There, competing
against numerous o'.her classes and clubs, their float, built
in the shape of a rocket ship, was given first place honors.
It was the only motor-driven float in the parade.
Later in the semester, the class sponsored a picnic;
they also initiated two well-attended socials after basketball

The sale of key chains at basketball games and at
Homecoming was the year's money-raising project for the Soph-
omore B class. In the fall they sponsored a "Through the Look-
ing Glass" party in the small gym for all students. They par-
ticipated in the Homecoming festivities by making a float which
was entered in the between-halves competition. In the spring
another all-school social was promoted by this active group.

The Freshman A class arranged four parties and
one group enterprise during their first year at C.T.C.
The first social afiair was a "Get-Acquainted" party
for Frosh A's only. Following that, afternoon all-school
socials were scheduled. A St. Patrick's Day "Sham-
rock Sale" proved highly successful.

Since its relocation on the Wright Junior College campus,
the North Side Branch has seen its enrollment increase nearly
to the hundred mark with every indication that this figure may
be doubled within a semester or two. The faculty now consists
of three full time and twelve part time instructors, some of whom
have been recruited from the Wright staff.
The Branch now provides a program at the senior col-
lege level for students preparing to teach at the Kindergarten-
Primary or intermediate-upper grade levels. Students may
complete their third and fourth years of college work at the
Branch. Many more students are encouraged to continue
working for their degrees because of the convenience of the
location for North-siders. Extended day classes are also offered
and provide an opportunity for in-service teachers to take ad-
ditional courses or to work towards an advanced degree.

The major organization at the Branch is the Raoul R.
Haas chapter of Future Teachers of America, chartered on Jan-
uary 6, 1954. During the year F.T.A. sponsored many activities
— Mrs. Lillian Erzinger and Dr. Philip Lewis were featured
speakers — and plans are now under way for a formal dance at
the close of the semester, one of the traditions established when
the Branch was located in the Schurz High School. Other
activities included teas, parties, feature movies — such as "Pas-
sion for Life" — and other special programs.
Students at the North Side Branch also participated in
the student-substitute program in April.

Efiective communication and self-expres-
sion are necessary skills needed by a well-
rounded individual. To facilitate the develop-
ment of these skills, courses in written compos-
ition are offered which aid the student in the
utilization of research techniques and the form-
al elements of writing.
The purpose of these courses is to de-
velop self-expression and self-criticism; em-
phasis is placed upon information, perception,
and reason. Students are given special coach-
ing to improve voice techniques.

It is a teacher's obligation to assist each pupil to
develop a practical understanding of economic values.
His continuous adjustment to community life depends
on efficient use of natural and human resources.
Competence in this area deals not only with con-
servation, but with the production, distribution and con-
sumption of goods and services. Courses in the fields
of social studies and mathematics help prepare future
teachers to assume such obligations.

The purpose of this course is to equip students
to care for persons who are injured or ill until trained
medical help arrives. Since knowledge of what to
do in an emergency is vital to teacher training,
practical application of temporary aids, artificial
respiration, and the various methods of bandaging
are emphasized in class sessions.
At the completion of the semester's work,
trainees receive the American Red Cross card certi-
fying completion of the standard course in first aid.
The influence of the teacher in helping to es-

Courses dealing particularly with
skills and methods of physical edu-

of all P.E. teachers.
This Department provides students with
experiences in working with wood, metal, plas-
tics, ceramics, graphic arts and electricity. The
purpose of such experiences is to provide guid-
ance and background for the teaching of crafts
in the elementary school.
The Department also functions in the In-

in executing the Home Mechanics sequence.
