The first stop was at Peoria to change bus drivers. At the end of the first day we stayed all night in Columbus, Ohio. The next day we left the hotel at about 7:30, saw the Ohio University, and con tinued traveling until we reached Gettysburg, where we retired for the night after a tour of the famous battle site. On Wednesday and Thursday we toured Washington, D. C. and Mount Vernon seeing the Congressional Library, Congress in Session, The White House, The Su preme Court Building, Ford Theater, Smithsonian Ins.titute, Lincoln Memorial and Arlington. Going on our way, we arrived in Annapolis after lunch Thursday. We got off the bus and saw the chapel, museum, gym, and Bancroft Hall at the Naval Academy We were also in time to see the Dress Parade. ln Philadelphia we saw Constitution Hall and the Liberty Bell. We arrived in New York via New Jersey Turnpike through Lincoln Tunnel. We stayed at the well located Hotel Chesterfield. Many points of interest were near us. 'I'he next day we took a tour of the city, and ended by going on top of the N. B. C building to see the city by night. The following day being Sunday, some of us went to church. Our group left the city about 1:30 in the afternoon and drove out to West Point. We stayed all night at Poughkeepsie where we saw famous Vassar College. We left early in the morning and took a route where we could see Hyde Park We arrived in Niagara Falls, N. Y. in the evening and had reservations at Hotel Niagara, a very nice hotel. The falls were surely beautiful at night when the colored lights were on. On Tuesday we left Hotel Niagara and drove to Goat Island. At the end of this day we stayed all night in Detroit. The last day of the trip we left Detroit and drove all day arriving home about 9 in the evening. That was a nice dream, wasn't it? I guess I'm thinking too much about gradua tion and the trip. Oh well, this is going to happen to us this June. ...19- gi W lfff A f Q 1 M - ,Vai .D ,Z .

All was well ln the first three weeksg then came the initiation of the new members of the cast. How at- tractive we were in our outlandish costumes and somewhat smeared faces! To lead us in this first year of training we chose Dick Lafferty as president, Dean Staley as vice- president, Pat McCormick as secretary and treasurer, and Mrs. McKie as advisor. During the remainder of the year, we often found ourselves lost in the intricacies of algebra and English, but were sufficiently recovered to attend a banquet given in our honor by the Feature Players. Vacation being over, thirty-four Feature Players flocked to the doors of ACHS-TV. To guide us in this second training period we chose the following leaders: Alice Conn, Dick Staggs, Carole Corbin, Virginia Armstrong, and Mr. Mills. The year was a busy one involving various parties and money-making schemes to finance the annual Fresh- man-Sophomore Banquet. Having safely passed through this year, we were now-ready to accept the responsibilities of being Understudies. At the beginning of our third year in training, there were thirty-two Understudies striving for the role of Stars. Officers were Margaret Bruington, Virginia Armstrong, Donna Armstrong, Bob O'Brien, and Mr. Sturm. Most of the major activities were planned for the purpose of making money to finance the Junior-Senior Banquet and Prom. During April the cast of "Strictly Formal" could be found practicing frequently. The play was successfully staged on April 16 and 17. On May 24, the Understudies were hosts to the Stars at the Prom and banquet. Now, at last, we had achieved the esteemed positions of Stars. To guide us through Sponsor, Mr. Clark. The first event of the year was the initiation of the new Stand-Ins. dent, Marilyn Lundeeng Secretary, Gene Osborn, Treasurer, Marilyn Reynoldsg our final year, we chose these capable leaders: President, Dudley Purleeg Vice-PI'esi- guests of the Understudies at a banquet and prom. 7 the building was highly decorated for the Senior Carnival. In May we were the Next, we presented the play, "The Mad Hatters," directed by Mrs. Hussey. On March ' On a day at the close of May, the Stars presented their grand finale, "Gradua- t1OIl.,, The curtain was drawn! Thirty-two Stars now making their exits from ACHS-TV station were ready for their entrance on the world's stage. -25- 7 5 x S 5 X K ff If' 4 Al L44 bi if S A vi' 1 V2 7 Fil Qi 4 1 LA 0 D 5 Q ti M y ja rw J 4 , r y 1 - f V Y ------W'-,ww-H THE U N DEIQSTLJ DH-TS We proudly present to you the,Unders-tudies, who next year will step into the spotlight and become Stars. Welcoming the title of upper classm-en, the Juniors have worked diligently to become honor students and to acquire skill and leadership in extra-curricular activities. All year was spent in making money and plans for both the Junior - Senior Prom and, of course, the Senior trip. , Special recognition was given to these outstanding Under- studies: Roxie Olson and Pat Moore, Ch-eerlleadersg Rose Ann Bjorkman, Irene Fell, John Axcell, Gloria Milner, and Daryll Johnson, District music contest participantsg and John Axcell and Roxi-e Olson, candidates for carnival royalty.

In this show the Seniors are still starring. I'll just sit back and relax and watch what my old "cronies" are doing. In New York I see Dorothy Anders-on as ileading soloist of Gene "Ozzie" Osborn's all girl orch-estra, the Ozzatonies. Donna and Virginia of course had a double wedding and Don- na now has a "Rhoring" household of three little sailors and Virginia, who married Coach Dick Lafferty of Alexis, is raising little "All Stars." Shirley Bloomfield always interested in libraries, opened up a new one-guess where --in Kirkwood!

We decided to have a quiz program making Dudley Purlee master of ceremonies, teachers and students as contestants, and using the senior gifts as prizes. After answering all questions incorrectly, Dudley awarded to Jim Stevens, as a consolation prize, Dorothy Anderson's scholastic ability, which he thought Jim could use. Rose Ann Bjorkman immediately chose as her prize Donna Armstrong's ability to write letters in government class without being caught. For correct pronouncing practice, Roxie Olson won Virginia Armstrong's tech- nique in cheerleading to aid her in leading next year's cheers. Erma Jean Williams thought she had better take Barbara J. Brown's left hand jewelry just in case Tom doesn't give her one. For answering a series of difficult questions, Virginia Frank was presented Margaret Bruington's ability to make new friends, which she could use to increase her already long list. Mary Dowd took Alice Conn's aggressiveness because some people think she can use more . So she could use it in the next three years, Dariel Milner took Carole Corbin's ability to get along with boys. Answering several tough mathematics questions, Mrs. Yeager chose Marlene Elliott's green gym suit as her prize. Phyllis Scott got Vernita Haywood's black eyelashes and eyebrows so she could save on the expense of mascara. After careful consideration, Dick Bird chose Howard Hinderliter's happy-go-lucky attitude. Dave Lafferty walked off with his brother Dick's athletic ability to help him follow in the traditional Lafferty footsteps. Stanley Russell decided on Carole Lafferty's ability to influence teachers, be- cause he has shown talent in that field. George McConnell's innocent countenance while telling little 'twhite lies" went to Shirley Price who has probably heard quite a number. Maestro Don Haywood won Pat McCormick's gum chewing and popping to aid him in leading the band. Darlene Roach was awarded Inez Mead's long fingernails to help her hold John McConnell. Don Barry received Doris Moore's collection of make-up slips to add to his steadily increasing number. Bill O'Brien took Bob's prize of Mary Axcell with the promise that he would take care of her. Miss Boley got just what she wanted -- Gene Osborn's artistic ability. Judy Purlee all but Jumped for Joy when she won Dudley's little blue ford.

Vi Q 4 Give And Take -Continued from page 33- When this portion was over, Dudley found he still had quite a number of un- claimed prizes. Elaine Hursa's continuous giggle was given to anyone who will enjoy it as much as she did. With a glance at Mrs. Sparrow, Dudley announced that Eric J ohnson's ability to disrupt the whole bookkeeping class was available to anyone who would keep up the custom. Jerry Lair's position of only man on the jury went to the victim of next year's government class. Any boy who thinks he can excell Winford Legate in playing Romeo with any leading lady was asked to step up and take Winford's ability. Another prize offered that no one chose was Marilyn Lundeen's nickname of "Lucy" which was given to anyone "fortunate" enough to have the name of Lucille. Irvin Ray's title of "Derby" was offered to anyone who wanted it. Next year's senior girls won Marilyn Reynold's mischievous antics in home ec. Dean Staley's interest in Moline went to anyone who thinks he can get it. To anyone who can afford to buy the gas, Stanley Tyrrell will gladly give his job of chauffeuring the sophomore girls. Dave Waight's temper will be awarded to anyone who thinks he can control it. Then came the time for the teachers to come forward. In this section of the pro- gram the questions were, of course, more difficult. The teachers didn't choose their prizes. The seniors decided on them. To Mr. Staggs we gave our frequent trips to the office after we have "left" class. Mr. Clark was given our sincere thanks for being such a helpful friend and class sponsor. We awarded Mrs. Yeager our white gym suits and "good" sportsmanship. Mrs. Hussey won all of our vocabulary books, since we have the words clearly imprinted on our minds. Miss Boley smilingly accepted our "dear suits" and our messes in the kitchen in girls' and boys' home ec. To Mr. Zimmerman we gave our noise in first . period study hall. Maybe it will be quieter next year without us. Mr. Manley smiled as we gave him our undiscovered musical talents and our thirty minutes a day practice. Mr. Sturm accepted our athletic abilities to strengthen next year's team. Our tamperings with the office equipment went to Mary Jean Mrs. Sparrow was given our commercial "understandings" and a few chicken scratches from the "large" shorthand class. To Mr. Bair and Mr. McLean we gave our thanks for helping us so much especially after games. ' To dear old ACHS we gave our love. -41- L v"'f5 E Q gt bl 1,51 IA T "'f"""" -'frm-u-!""'!"" j R-p-:qv s ff .

In fact, they are all nuts! Margaret Hatter, the mother, is nuts about drarnatics. Joe Hatter, the father, is nuts about fish- ing. Gigi, their daughter, is nuts about athletics. Bunny, their son, is nuts about photography and Angelica, the housekeeper, is just plain nuts. ' Grandma Hatter supported them for years and suddenly decides it's time to quit. She gave them all three months to prove they can make their own living. And from then on, things happen fast when they decide to commercialize their hobbies. At the end of the three months all failed but Joe, who brings home the bacon. Backtwoods Romeo Can you imagine a young man, over twenty-one, who has never seen or talked to a girl? Well, Romeo Montague was in that predicament. His parents died when he was a child and his uncle, a scientist, took him into the wilds of Canada, where he reared and educated the boy. Larry McNeil and Rex Simonds, two Americans, ran across Romeo and asked him to visit them in the States. Romeo arrived at the McNeil estab- lishment, by airplane, still unacquainted with women. But, in this household were Larry's sisters, two young ladies who were anything but shrinking violets. There also were the Spanish maid, La Reina, and Orpha, Larry's fiancee, to say nothing of young and vivacious Aunt Rachel. Romeo was young, handsome, and unspoiled, and all the women fell for him and how! Larry and his inheritance problem - Rex and his smashed auto - all these problems piled together kept the McNeil home in an uproar, but Romeo adjusted them. ff If' f 45 v Cl DI 'Q 1? F it v -4Q..

The old hall of ACHS-TV had been transformed into a mini- ature Hawaii. The Stars of the evening were wel- comed in true Hawaiian style with her colorful Leis and her gay "Aloha" Against a background of soft music and moon- light the festivities began. The banquet, served by a group of sophomore girls, dressed appropriately for the occasion, was prepared by the E. U. B. church. Groups of four, seated around small tables on the balcony, enjoyed a delicious four course din- ner. In addition to the honored guests, the board of education, faculty, and friends were present to participate in an evening pf gaiety. The Hawaiians entertained them with characteristic songs and toasts. In return the seniors read their will and prophecy, which produced much fun and laughter. After dinner the guests assembled in the gym, which had for the evening been converted into a dance pavilion. The dreamy music of Brad Wil- liams' orchestra was surely suggestive of faraway Hawaii. At intormission fruit punch and Hawaiian cookies were served. At the stroke of twelve thanks were given the juniors for a festive eve- ning and good luck and Aloha were extended to the seniors. -.61-. LA 8 D 5 Q li E1 Pi 4 . v T 'Q 5 Q ll Q' .

If you should enter the high school some afternoon before a game, you will see and hear the cheerleaders leading cheers at the pep meeting. A cheerleader has a job cut out for her. She must have pep and enthusiasm. If the team gets behind in scores, she must keep the fans yelling to encourage the team to fight onward to victory. This year the students elected Carole Corbin, Virginia Armstrong, and Patty Moore to lead cheers for the varsity games, and Mary Axcell, Marilyn Lundeen, and Roxie Olson to cheer for the reserve team. Because of illness, Virginia Armstrong was unable to be in the picture. ' ...66q r'4 - Q at , 1 aanr 3 f ' 51, President Irene Fell I! , Q y 'ai f . ,I A 47 . .j Ix ,, rl . xx A A . . . . H- .

Y U x TV Sports 'Qs-View FOOTBALL The 1952 football season started with 10 returning-lettermen all seniors except 1. The lettermen were mostly linemen and when game time came the coaches made a few changes. The boys were of fair size and had plenty of scrap. The season went well until lack of size and fresh players caused a loss. The season highlight game was with R.O.V.A. as the Cardinals really played good clean ball and racked up a 20-6 thriller. We were the under-dogs and pulled an upset that gave the Cardinals third place in the Little Six which is the highest we have had in years. Alexis began the season with Reynolds and ran off an easy win 14-0. Then we encountered R.M.A. and our defense and offense just couldn't click and we ended in a seldom-found 0-0 tie. Before the Cardinals could get out of the slump, Abingdon slipped over a 13-0 win. ' Knoxville stirred the gridders up as they got rolling for a sweet revengeful 13-0 Wlll. A loss to Aledo hurt and only Stronghurst's win could satisfy the Cardinals. Rose- ville pulled another upset as they really played good ball to the tune of 13-0, which caused the Cardinals a bad loss in the Little Six Standing. The Cards went on to win the rest of the games defeating R.O.V.A. and beating for the first and only time a Corpus Christi outfit, which could really pass the pigskin. BASKETBALL This year's hardwood team had a shortage of players but they were fairly tall and had plenty of fight. The Cardinals really got hot as they ran up a season high score of 88-54 decision over Stronghurst. The highlight of the year was with the Aledo boys as we worked hard and long for a very sweet victory to the tune of 57-52. This is the first time in many years that Alexis has defeated an Aledo basketball team. Dick Lafferty was top point winner for the Cards with plenty of help from Tyrell and Staggs. TRACK Track has just started but the returning lettermen are making the season look bright already. Lettermen are Dick Lafferty, Dave Waight, Dick Staggs, Jim Jones, Larry Anderson, Bill Lafferty. ALL STARS George McConnell received first team honors in All Star ratings and Stanley Tyrrell, Dudley Purlee, and Bob O'Brien received honorable mention These boys earned the honor given them by working together and by working hard. I Alexis has a new trophy as a result of last year's efforts. The Little Six Cross Country team won the last meet to be held in the Little Six and also the only one Alexis has won for a long time. These boys won it and here is how they finished: CROSS COUNTRY U G 1 Dave Powell, 2 Dave Waight, 4 Dick Lafferty, 5 Bill Lafferty, 6 Howard Hinderliter.

A. A. girls invited their fathers to be their guests for dinner and an evening of fun. The girls di- vided into groups and decorated the tables into 8 sports respec- tively: shooting for baskets, darts, pitch, bowling, ping pong, badminton, checkers, and shuffleboard. After the dinner, the men played all 8 sports competitively. A box of candy was given the group winning the highest score. To complete the evening, a king, Bernard McGuire, and 2 attendants, Lyle Tyrrell and Os- car Tournouist, were chosen by means of lucky numbers. A tie pin with "Dad" initialed on it was given the king, the attend- ants received boxes of candy. They reigned during a small en- tertainment put on by classes: freshmen, pyramid building, sophom-ores and juniors, basketball quarter, seniors, 2 square dances. The fathers left proclaiming the "Welcome Dads" greeting on th-e wall really rang sincerely in their hearts. Guia Supporters As we climbed the ladder of success from Stand-Ins to Stars, we have had many hardships to overcome. These hardships would not have been overcome with-out the help of our teachers and our parents. They have played a great part in all of -our lives. It would take pages and pages to te'l you all the things you probably know - how these people, OUR SUPPORTERS, helped us through our trials and tribulations. In a few words we are trying to thank them for everything - little and big. It's very hard to do, but Mother, Dad, teachers, and friends, thank you! K .-77... lf'f .-f 0 cs 5 Q il Pe!

The bulletin board was arranged attractively for Sandburg's birthday. The board was headlined in black letters. "We Proudly Present Carl Sand- burg." Below the headlines were pictures, magazine and newspaper clippings. A re- view of his new book, "Always The Young Strangers," was also given. In order 120 complete the study, the classes toured his birthplace on East Third Street. In 1947, the cottage was bought and refinished in honor of the poet. The so-called Lincoln room was added for the purpose of keeping Lincoln relics, which Sandburg had collected. This 19th century decorated room holds items such as powder horns, several Lincoln portraits, famous letters and speeches, and a replica of a covered wagon. On the bookshelves between a fireplace, which is made of historical bricks, are placed Sand- burg's books as "Remembrance Rockf' a volume of Lincoln's "War Years," "Ameri- can Songbag," and his latest book called "Always The Young Strangers." In the original three rooms where the Sandburgs lived were old-fashioned dishes, irons, and a coffee grinder. The quilts of the trundle bed were hand dyed and woven. One can read his literature, study his biography, and visit his bir-thplace, but still can't really appreciate this extraordinary man until one can talk to him and watch his kind face as he calmly speaks in his friendly voice. The students can now really appreciate Carl Sandburg and his works, because they talked to him when he arrived unexpectedly at Galesburg from Chicago. The students were photographed with the poet for the "Life" Magazine and "The Galesburg Register Mail." This, indeed, was a highlight of the year. -86- fi ak E':.
