Q . , S . , -. , g -ff -. ,QM ' ' ' F0liEWORll Time, the essence of life! Time to live, to hope, to pray, to grow. Time to make a pioneer cabin school into asystem of twenty-one schools. Our years have reached a hundred, our pupils number six thousand, and our teachers three hun- dred. These years have been a time of progress since Harriet Gifford taught the three R's to pioneer children in her brother's log cabin. Time and change cannot be divorced. They have wrought their handiwork in the Elgin public schools. Youth, Fired with hope and desire, hasn't basically changed since l85l. Through one hundred years Elgin schools have tried to meet the needs of youth as they were buffeted by the ebb and flow of the world's ever-changing tides. Communism and democracy face each other at the crossroads. What choice will our youth make?What questions will they ask? Does education have the answer? Our schools today, as in the past, endeavor to meet these needs of youth, for as youth moves, so shall the progress of the world.

Under their direction the student body and Fans were led in cheering, pro- moting good sportsmanship and enthusiastic support at our games. There's one cheer- leader you didn't see down in front at games, but she was always behind the scenes with her assistance and helpful advice - Miss DeloresMcMillin, the spon- sor. The ninth grade cheerleaders were Marianne Fritz, Sandra Burbank, Pat Kap- tain, Judy Greenwaldt, and Janice Turner. Day in and day out during the school year Mrs. Ballard and Mrs. Harris helped prepare the delicious meals served in our cafeteria . Hot meals were served to several hundred students daily during the school year. The eighth grade cheerleaders were Ruth Martin, Carol Aurand, Pat Carey, Jane Greenwaldt, Sandra Schramm, Pat Barber, and Char Yarwood.

One of the outstanding games was the game lost to Ellis in the last seven seconds. This spoiled Abbott's chances for a tie of the City Championship. In the first quarter Gary Warren ran for a touchdown making the score 6 to 0. The score never changed until the last seven seconds when we attempted to knock down a pass, but before it hit the ground one of the opponents caught it and ran five yards for the touchdown. They then converted, and the game ended 7 to 6 for Ellis. ROW 1: Bill Hayward, Bill Gieske, Gary Thelander, Ron West- moreland, Warren Kiel, Mike Lyons, Marvin Koehn, Bill Sie- grist, Don Hanson.

The following week in a game with Larson the score constantly changed as first one team then the other scored. With 30 seconds left to play, Larson led by 28 to 27. Then Smith snaggeda long pass thrown by Gary Warren to make the score 33 to 28. Abbott converted to win the game by 34 to 28 . Abbott's 1951 football season was successful in many ways and can be classed with successful seasons of the past. Statistics show this year's team out-gained and out-played its opponents. The scoring was evenly divided among the mem- bers of the offensive team. Mr. Block did a fine job in his first year as ninth grade coach.

L The final standings would seem to indicate this is rather a lean year for the Abbott eighth graders. If .ludged on the basis of wins and losses this is probably true. However, with no less than 48 boys contributing to the welfare ofthe four teams, one can readily see there was no lack of interest in this group. The same is indicated by the many loyal followers and cheerleaders who backed the boys at each game. It should be recorded that this was certainly a season of exciting ball games, many being settled by one or two points. In Fact, Abbott teams were involved in four overtime games, which is probably a record.
