There are seventy-two men, and eight wo- men who have graduated from Woodhull High School, and who are now in the service of their country. We are very sorry that it has been neces- sary to include two gold stars, one for Jack Harwood and one for William Peterson. It is our sincere hope that this flag is com- plete, and that our boys and girls will soon be home. 'Ir ADMINISTRATION ' N A E If ,, V , 3' '1 ADMIRALS . . ,.i,x IWW? i' Loyalty Song Woodhull High!

Y ,e 1 i u.. 1 A Word From the Principal if The Woodhull Township High School opened its doors after a summer vacation with an enrollment of seventy-two students. All of our former teachers were back at their posts with the exception of Mr. Winters. Mr. Robert Magill of Kinderhook is the principal and teacher of chemistry and general science. Twenty freshmen were initiated into our school at a school party by our Senior Class. Our school year is fast drawing to a close. Our school has enjoyed many activities. November 11th our students celebrated the day by collecting scrap paper and iron for our government. The drive was very successful. The collection brought one hundred and fifty-eight dollars to be divided between our classes. Most of this money is help- ing to pay for the pictures in the annual. During the last of November our high school was visited by Mr. Edmundson from the State Department of Public Instruction. The re- port of the inspector has been read and approved by the Board of Education. The report was very favorable 'and the citizens of Wood- hull have every reason to be proud of their high school. The Woodhull High School is making an attempt to meet the needs of the students and community. Advanced courses in mathe- matics are offered. Chemistry and physics are being alternated. Typing and Shorthand are available to students. Students have the opportun- ity for two years work in manual arts. Students are given four years Work in English. The Woodhull Township High School is recognized by the state and accredited with the University of Illinois. ROBERT W. MAGILL. ROBERT MAGILL Superintendent, Chemistry, General Science.

On the contrary, our four ,fears at Woodhull High have not been idle ones. As we entered our Freshman year, our class consisted of fourteen students, each one shy but willing to take in stride whatever confronted them. After going thru the usual ordeal of initiation, things went on smoothly and the class members Were: Bill Edwards, Robert Christian, Gene Clark, Virginia Swanson, Arlene Engstrom, Elizabeth Holmes, Lowell Granburg, Lois Alexander, Ila Mae Molberg, Violet Swanson, Dorothy Nelson, and Geraldine Murray. P The first year completed, we began our second year with much less difficulty and we were no longer looked upon as Freshies. This year we received six fine new members, Phyllis Anderson, John Wil- cox, Audrey Litton, Wilbur Newman, Richard Peterson, and Betty Wilson. But during the same year lla Mae Molberg, Violet Swanson, and Bill Edwards left our class. The class took part in various activ- ities as another year sped swiftly by. VVe began our Junior year with a class membership of seventeen as Arland Asplund, Vernon Wilson, Bob Dolan, and Elsie Gecan joined our class. During this year we had the experience of taking part in the Junior Class Play and the annual Junior and Senior banquet and Prom. Near the end of the first semester, Elsie Gecan transferred to LaSalle High School, making us a class of sixteen. In this, our last year, we have a class of seventeen as Arlene Eng- strom left us at the close of our Junior year, but beginning the second semester Anna Richards began school here. This year the class has taken part in many outside activities. In the fall we sponsored a scrap drive and in the spring the Senior Class Play and Return Party. Also the entire class has been active in compiling the school annual which has been no little job. After graduation many of our boys, and perhaps some of the girls will enter the services of our country. Those who do not will take up their different places in life, but whatever paths they take, we are assured they will be victorious. BETTY WILSON. Class Will ff We, the members of the Graduating Class of '44, knowing that to take our vast store of knowledge, our good looks, and our desire to be the very best of students, from our Alma Mater, would leave it a most unworthy school, wish to leave the aforesaid qualities to the Junior Class, that this school, may not perish from the earth. For the above reasons we make, ordain, and publish this last Will and Testa- ment: Robert tBobJ Christian leaves his ability to tease people, and his will power to stay home on Saturday nights to study English and Latin to Kay Sturgeon. Geraldine Murray, Phyllis Anderson, and Virginia Swanson, the trio better known as "Jerry," "Phyl" and "Tootie," will their tech- nique in finding a ride to the Roof on Saturday nights to Ila Mae Mol- berg, Violet Swanson, and Maribel Henderson. Elizabeth Holmes leaves her comforting nature and sympathetic powers to her pal, Carolyn Crane, and it is Elizabeth's will to help any other girl left behind if the occasion should arise. Gene Clark has proved that the saying, "Time heals everything," is not strictly water proof, by his unfailing love for Elsie Gecan. Johnny Wilcox and Lowell Granburg unite to leave their love for the Senior girls, especially cheerleaders, to any two young men who can meet their standards and strict morals tPerhaps Junior Asp- lund and Willis Luallenj. Anna Richards leaves her will power to stay away from the men until the war is over to Joyce Howell who's found there's a much worse thing than a man shortage. Richard Peterson leaves his refined, reticent and dignified man- ner, along with his urge to gain knowledge in classes by his many questions he flings at the teachers to Robert Johnson. Arland Asplund leaves his love for two WTHS girls to Ray Swan- son and it is his hope that Ray can understand women better than he has done. Robert Dolan wills his straight "A" record to Donald Carlson. tContinued on Next Pagej Class Will---Continued 'A' Betty Wilson and Vernon Wilson will their hearty chuckles and good nature to Bruce Herndon, who doesn't really need any help but hope it gives him a little aid. P.S.: They also will their good old Swedish name of Wilson to all Swedes around and about the vicinity of Woodhull. Wilbur Newman leaves his love for the Freshman girls, especial- ly Carol Johnson, to Merrill Brown, that is, if Merrill can break away from the Alpha girls. Audrey Litton leaves her power to stay home nights, and her ability to control her temper especially in typing, to Joyce Thayer. Dorothy M. Nelson leaves her unfailing love for the Nelson Brothers and her telescopic vision to her name-sake, Dorothy W. Nelson. And now we leave to our faithful teachers the following promises: Not to tell of Miss Easley's interest in a certain soldier lad who is now in the Aleutians. Or Miss Becker's skipping school for an afternoon and a failure to assign an English lesson. And to Coach we promise not to relate the date for his band's debut into society. To Hainline we promise not to expose his love for dancing. Nor to ask Mr. Magill his secret of how to be happy by having a smile for everyone. Nor will we say anything about Miss McKenna's acting as a chap- eron on Saturday nights to some of the students at the very popular "Roof."t This document will be, but should not be forgotten, so we here- by nominate and appoint as executor, Mr. Magill, who shall preserve this by placing it behind the fourth brick south of the third brick west of the second brick below the office window. In witness whereof we do here place our hand and seal this six- teenth day of May, Nineteen Hundred and Forty-Four, A.D. THE SENIOR CLASS OF 1944, 'Witness by: Alvie and Little Carl. ---By Dorothy M. Nelson. Prophecy ff We are going to the beautiful "VVilcox Hotel" in down-town Woodhull where an Officer's Ball is being given in honor of Admiral Robert W. Magill who is home on leave. Admiral Magill has been the Commanding Officer of "The Skipper." John Wilcox, a United States Naval Commander, is the proprietor of this beautiful hotel and has gained a reputation of owning and operating one of the finest hotels in the world. As we look around we see many people who have distinguished themselves in our fight for a free world. We see Captain Robert Christ- ian of the Medical Corp who has saved the lives of many Navy men through his great skill as a surgeon. Talking to him is Lieutenant Lowell Granburg of the Navy Air Corps who, at present, is Uncle Sam's leading Ace with 54 enemy planes to his credit. As we glance at the band stand we see Captain Arland Asplund and his orchestra spotlighted by such stars as Richard Peterson, fam- ed trumpet player. and Vernon Wilson on the saxophone, who for- merly played with the "Million Dollar Band." Both of these young men are officers in the Navy. The vocalists with the band are Vir- ginia Swanson and Geraldine Murray---former stage and screen stars before joining the "Waves." At a table near the band stand we see two Lieutenants who are also members of the "Waves" They are Lt. Dorothy Nelson and Lt. Audrey Litton. Lieutenants Nelson and Litton are control tower op- erators at one of the large Naval Training Stations where their effic- ient work has prevented many accidents. The speakers for the evening are Lieutenant Commander Phyllis Anderson of the "Waves" and Captain Gene Clark of the Naval In- telligence Department. Lt. Commander Anderson has distinguished herself as,Commanding Officer of the "Wa-ves." Capt. Clark's service with Navy Intelligence is responsible in a great way for the efficiency with which this department has operated. We also see Captain Elizabeth Holmes, a member of the "Waves," fContinued on Next Pagej Prophecy---Continued i' who is a statistician in the Naval Intelligence Department where she has gained recognition for fine work. Lieutenant Betty Wilson who we see talking with Lieutenant fJun- ior Gradej Anna Richards has served as Recruiting Officer for the "Waves" It is through Lt. Wilson's efforts that the "Waves" have become such a vital part of the Navy. Lt. Cjgl Richards has been serv- ing under Lt. Wilson in the Recruiting Office and has been commend- ed for her fine work. Everyone cheers now as Admiral Magill makes his appearance escorted by Captains Wilbur Newman and Robert Dolan. Capt. New- man and Capt. Dolan are Admiral Magill's personal advisers and have served him for several years. The dinner is served and then Lt. Commander Anderson and Capt. Clark give their addresses, which are followed with ballroom dancing. It seems but a short time until we hear the orchestra play- ing "Home Sweet Home" and the Ball is over. Everyone shakes hands with the distinguished guest and then leave to resume their duties. ---by GENE CLARK ARLAND ASPLUND 'A' Calendar---1943-44 AUGUST 30--School opened.

The Juniors decided as their activity for the first semester a the- atre party at Galesburg. The date set was November 12, 1943, and the show they saw was "Let's Face lt," at the Orpheum. Late fall found the Juniors bidding farewell to one of their class- mates, Dale Johns, who reported for duty in the armed forces. Our Secretary-Treasurer, Carolyn Crane left the group and moved to North Dakota in March. Her office was capably filled by Dorothy Wiladena Nelson. The annual Junior and Senior Prom was held Friday night, May 5, 1944, in the High School Auditorium. The theme was a surprise to the Seniors since the Juniors succeeded in keeping it a secret until the night of the banquet. The gym was attractively decorated carrying out the Southern theme. A typical Southern three-course meal was served. The colonial mansion with its stately white pillars entended to all the feeling of Southern hospitality. A golden moon shone down brightly on the Southern belles and their escorts as they danced along the star-lit terrace to the music of a local orchestra. After many months of eager anticipation the Junior Class Rings arrived! The usual griping about the size was endured by Miss Mc- Kenna. The year's activities were brought to a successful finish by an outdoor supper followed by a theatre party. C C A Na. :- mm 'V ' 1 w '51, ..4' Zig. Iwi? " .Lf Sm? Z:- J' 'gf V -1 Lal: -9- , ..

Due to Hazel Boehme's leaving school for several weeks her picture was omitted as the annual copies were made before her return.

Our G.A.A. is a group of girls which is divided into smaller groups within the state of Illinois, to which any girls of high school age may belong. The object of the league is to stimulate interest in girls' athletics and gymnastics and to standardize and to promote ideals of health and sportsmanship. There are about twenty-seven members in the Woodhull Association. The association is under the sponsorship of Miss Lavere McKenna. The girls elected to lead the association this year were: President ..... Audrey Litton Vive President . . Joyce Thayer Secretary-Treasurer . . Rozella Swanson This association is an excellent way for girls to obtain exercise and recreation. Sports in which these girls participate are basketball, volleyball, and relays of various types. The girls receive numerals and letters by- earning points. The points are earned by living up to speci- fied health principles and by participating in the above sports and activities after school hours. The activities enjoyed by the G.A.A. follows: In October they participated in a "Hay-ride." They had their ann-ual initiation in November. During the month of December they enjoyed a Christmas Party. Many of them went on a theatre party sponsored by the associa- tion in January. As a remembrance of the holiday St. Valentine's Day they had a Valentine party in February. In March they had a hobo party. When the spring weather set in they had a Skating Party. Nearing the close of the school year they all took part in a pot- luck supper which was in May. x .- P L v i f wry 1 W J , Q-.115--, af Q4 ,3., - I W ,p 5 I .

"Can't we?" snaps back the school principal---and we're off on a delightful evening. Paul is struggling violently to avoid summer school and the same time keep his girl from a campus big shot who drives a cream color convertible coupe. Paul and his girl are blissfully listening to their sentimental "theme song," when Pau1's father enters with the disastrous news that if Paul doesn't pass his final exams with an extremely high mark, it means summer school instead of the lakes. This would give Paul's rival a whole summer to take his girl away from him, but Paul decides he's "gotta fight for his woman." He starts a terrific cram session and a maneuvering that always seems to get him deeper and deeper in trouble. He bashes into the school principal's car, he's blamed for things he didn't do, and then just as things look a little brighter, he takes a strong emetic--by mistake-and his girl has to come in at just that moment and demand that he "sit right there and study." "You don't know what you're asking," pleads Paul, but the audience does, and they roar at this happiest of all high school comedies.

ACT THREE: Three hours later. in in the mountains outside Janet is whisked off to the mountains by her irrate aunt Thelma because she disapproves of the match between Janet and Herb. Nothing daunted, Herb gets there ahead of them, puts on a false beard, affects a phony accent, and gets Gabriel, the lazy caretaker, to give him a job as Cousin Sam Pennington, from "the other side of the mountain." Then Aunt Thelma arrives with Janet and a gay house party including Harola, whom Aunt Thelma hopes Janet will marry. Herb has to work fast, for Janet---and the race is on. Every time Harold tries to propose to Janet, Herb comes in and drops a load of wood. When Harold angrily calls Herb a "half-wit hillbilly," Herb pretends that his moun- tain pride has been insulted, and he pulls out a knife. Harold makes tracks down the mountain, and the field is clear for Herb---until his Dad appears. For some unknown reason, Mr. Brown and Aunt Thelma hate each other. Then Aunt Thelma discovers that "Cousin Sam" is Herb---and the fireworks really start. However an accident to Herb's Dad gives the plot such an unexpected twist that in an exciting finale, misunderstandings are cleared away and the young folks---and the older ones, too, find romance blossoming all over the mountainside. if- , 1 4 J yn wt A A . 24155 Nrfiii, .

Advice to Kay Sturgeon, Ray Swanson, and Bruce Herndon "How to Call on a Girl" Never let her know you are coming. tThen you will see her natural selfj. Always bring a pound of sugar. tThis puts you in right with her motherl. On entering the parlor grab the best chair before her father gets it. CThis makes him go to another roomj. The best way to get rid of her little brother is to give him a strong cigarette. tThe doctor prescribes the restj. Teacher: Fools often ask questions which wise men cannot answer." Bob Christian: "I guess that is why I flunk in so many exams." John Hultgren: "Mr, Hainline, where is the steel tape?" Mr. Hainline CPointing to Max Nordeen sitting on an unfinished lawn chairjz "Tiresome, over there, has it." Mr. Hainline: "Bob, did I hear you swear just then?" Bob: "I don't know, sir, what did I say?" Rev. Tucker fvisiting the city jailj : "Why are you here, my misguided friend?" Anonymous: "I am the victim of the unlucky number thirteen." Kev. Tucker: "Indeed! How is that?" Anonymous: "Twelve jurors and one judge." WHY TEACHERS GO CRAZY Exam Answers: When a person is rescued from drowning artificial perspiration should be given. If an ankle is sprained you should keep off that foot so as to avoid information. An usher is one who takes a leading part in a theatre. A butress is a nanny goat. Geometry is that branch of mathematics that teaches us to bisect angels. Never do this year what you can put off until next. You can tell a Senior, but you can't tell him much. And they shall do without knowledge---The flunkers. Fools rush in where angels fear to tread, especially if they have corns. Jokes if Standard fiction---well paved streets of Woodhull. VVhen father sends daughter to a finishing school, she usually ends up by finishing him. One who studies night and day---no one. Having been poor is no shame, but being ashamed of it is. The only difference between a bishop and an archbishop is the arch. Some are wise, some are otherwise.---Juniors. Senior girls' latest occupation---knitting hose for the fire engine. Maidens say "no" and mean "yes."---To the Junior Girls. Misfortune has long aims, but the faculty longer. Let none think themselves out of reach. High School news needs no special delivery stamp to insure its prompt delivery to the public. Wise student---One who saves his note book for fuel. Never step on a banana peel in a tack factory. To flunk or not to flunk, that is the question---Examination Day. A cigar is a roll of tobacco with fire at one end and a fool at the other. Some of us like to be fools. Never speak sense when nonsense will answer the purpose just as well. Wonderful place to stay---On the street with a cigar in your mouth when a member of the faculty happens by. Every family has its black sheepg also, every faculty has its goat. Oh, sleep, it is a blessed thing.---Raymond Swanson. Advice to Senior Girls. In case of fire, open the window and watch the fire escape. An echo is the only thing that can beat a high school girl out of the last word. The hardest thing in High School is doping out the easiest courses. Never stick around until you queer a good thing. Lots of young men know more than they ought to know and not so much as they should. Never put off until tomorrow a creditor that you can put off for thirty days. Orators will happen in the best of families. .7 o k e s i' The anticipation of Saturday and the recollection of Monday re- duces a Student's week to four days. Life is one blue Monday after another. A class party date is stolen fruit. A Senior is not necessarily polished because you see his finish. Any fool can go to bed but it takes a man to get up for an eight- fifteen class. A date is two hours and a half of canned companionship ordered in advance. you A date is never satisfactoryg either you must leave too early or can't leave early enough. Woodhull High School's trouble is nine-tenths feminine gender. The week end is usually a weak end. Eternity is brief compared to a High School Play. Wise girl---One that does not mistake attentions for intentions. A cozy corner is any corner that does not contain a chaperon. Fame depends on how well you are able to play the grandstand. The Comedy of Errors is never appreciated by the home team. A little lime light now and then is relished by the best of men. Repartee---the reply that you think of on the way home. When the clock strikes twelve and it sounds like eight---then you are in love. The love game is never called on account of darkness. The days of the night eaters are numbered. To fuss is one of Life's sternest duties. Act right in company so that you will know how to act at home. Domestic Science---The art of getting along with the home folks. A man's favorite exercise is patting himself on the back. A round of applause is better than a square meal. A word to the wise is useless. Popularity is what one buys at the cost of self-respect. It is never too late to spend. An education shows some people how devilish little some other people know.
