I-hgh School Howexer, we qulchly adapted oursely es to the new
routme, and eleeted Dayld W llll1I11S, Delores Stegall, and Doreen lvlurle
as class ofT1cers
As sophomores We elected Gene Nelson, Don Hzle, and C11 lrles Scar
blough to gulde us through the year
By 1945, our number had decreased to hfty two, but our mterest
and znp were LlI'ld1n1lI1lSl'1Cd Our offncers for the year were XValter
Verner, oan Ray, and Norma Wagne1 Many of us worked long and
hard to put on the elaborate Iunxor Semor banquet and prom
Qur capable senlor offlcers were Harold Day Beulah XX llkms, and
Durlng the four years of hlgh school we have p1rtlc1pated ln all
sports and haxe Ind members ln all the contests held NX e haye mam
tanned hlgh seholastle standlrds ln lddltlon to being letne 111 many
Noyy yye shall se ltter, to lobs, college, busy lnes NX e slneerely hope

above They prove themselves dependable and reliable when called upon
to help carry out projects for the school They must be capable leaders
and have a high character.
At the end of the Hrst semester students who are outstanding in
scholarship character service and leadership are chosen by the faculty.
The members of Sigma Lambda Chi are not known until the Tatler is
Another year has gone by and with it another
year of fun in the many musical activities
The Glee Club Boys and Girls Choruses
Mixed Chorus and Sextette are among the oldest
the history of AH S Under the direction of

A Christmas program consisting of group
singing and special numbers given by the Glee
Club Mixed Chorus and Sextette was held in
the lower study hall The junior and senior
high school students also participated in the

A memorable occasion on which the sextette displayed their enthusiasm and talent
was the WMBD broadcast from the high school One number was given by the girls
and it was enjoyed by all who heard it
An event that is eagerly looked forward to by many students who have talent IS
the annual contest Anyone who has the ability to play the piano or sing solos 15 in
v1ted to take part The local winners last year in voice were Delores Sregall Betty
Simkins Martha Rose Rubart Barbara Leigh Delores Tarr and Dorothy Walker I

the marimba went on to place first in the Sectional at Peoria
A new phonograph recorder purchased by the school is greatly appreciated by
both the music and speech departments Soloists and speech contestants can make re
cordings of contest numbers to aid them in interpretation diction and technique
Also many make recordings merely to hear their voices as others hear them
