Our first year in our new build- ing began here in our bright new office as we made out our final schedules for the new semester. We had new hopes, new ambitions, new intentions, and some of us even had new clothes. In contrast, a few weeks before, visitors and homefolks had registered for the centennial celebration in the lobby of the old Woodhull High School, the oldest building in the unit, which was completed in 1895 and is now deserted and quiet for the first year in its history. These folks had come to reminisce, to renew school and community friendships, to gaze for the moment into the past rather than into the future. Many of them entered whole-heartedly into the spirit of the occasion and appeared in clothes of another era.

LL Many years ago a teacher's du- ties were much different than they are today. Early every morning the teacher had to enter a cold school- house and fire the furnace, sweep the floor, clean the blackboards, and attend to other duties that are now done by janitors, besides the regular teaching duties. These days are now gone by. There are many former teachers in the A1Wood community who cherish these days in their hearts. Miss Sophie Taylor, a former music teacher, has guided many residents of this community in their first attempts at leaming their scales. Although she is now retired, she holds the education of toda 's ou.n Y Y 8 people in very high esteem. In order to encourage scholarship she annually presents S100 to the valedictorian of each graduating class. On behalf of the AlWood stud- ents we would like to thank Miss Taylor for her continued interest in developing scholarship. dministration Administration and faculty wives, Mrs. Fischer and Mrs. Riggle donned these old-time costumes for the centennial style show. Mrs. Riggle's gown is the one worn by Mr. Riggle's great-grandmother at her wedding in the early l800's.

All the grades, except the first three, moved to new or different buildings and rooms in t.he fall of '57. By foreseeing many problems that might arise they soon got things running on schedule. They can look on the year of the big change in Alwood with pride in a job well done.

These centennial parade entries of the different modes of travel in our area in past years indicate the different stages of the life of an underclassmen at .i1Wood. The freshmen, shown by the covered wagon, have a lot to look forward to when they first enter high school. Newly out oflunior High, they are un- used to electives, the various organi- zations, and the other differences about high school. The sophomores, depicted by the horse and buggy, are also new to high school this year, but they have been preparing for it, especially during the past year. For the most part, they like high school and all of its differences. They think of next year's class rings and class play. The juniors, shown by the old car, are the "old pros" of the underclass- men. Having been sophomores in the old high school, they were unprepared for the big new high school. They dream of next year when they will step into the seniors' shoes, and even farther ahead to what the future holds for them. On the heads of these young people is the responsibility and hope of our country's future. Their education is the goal of all at Alwood High School.

Those graduates knew nothing of Sputnik or missiles. It took several days to travel a distance by horseback or wagon. lt now takes only a few hours to travel the same distance in an automo- bile, or a few minutes to travel the same distance in an airplane. In order to attend high school many years ago, the students had to walk many miles. Today buses take us to and from school every day. Living conditions of one hundred years ago cannot be com- pared with those today. Television, telephone, and radio were un- known. The scientific age has brought with it many good things for mankind and also intensified problems of defense and survival. Our forefathers had to learn to work with their hands to survive, but as we look ahead we see greater and greater demands for skilled workers and for knowledge of space, rockets, and of things of which the pioneers never had heard. Our school curriculum necessarily is undergoing changes to keep up with these times. Already math and science classes have become more popular among the lstudents. We seniors are realizing this year of our graduation from high school can't mean the end of our edu- cation, but only the beginning of an entirely new education in learn- ing to live in this world of new developments every day. A HELEN ANDERSON Senior Award Winners This year Helen Anderson received the honor of being chosen to represent the Class of 1958 as the win- ner of the Daughters ofthe American Revolution Award, and the American Legion Good Citizenship Award. Duane Bodeen was the boy chosen to receive the Ameri- can Legion Good Citizenship Award.

Vice President . Secretary .... Treasurer .... Reporter ..... Parliamentarian This year is the first year we have attempted to organize a Library Club at AlWood, and we are rather proud of its successf We are very fortunate to have such an outstanding and well-equipped library. We have a total of 21 student librarians in our Library Club. We meet approximately once a month to discuss ways of making money, ways of improving our library and to answer each other's questions about shelving filing etc. In October, 1957, Helen Anderson and Kay Murdock represented AlWood at a meeting of the D R Y This is an organization composed of all the Library Clubs in Rock lslanD, MerceR and l-lenrY Counties At this meeting Alwood was selected to choose a president for D.R.Y. Kay Johnston was elected by the AlWood Club members and she will be installed as president in April, 1958. The Library Club will send two librarians to a Student Librarians' Meeting in Decatur, Ill. This meeting ls to promote a better understanding and appreciation of books and to become better acquainted with authors Are all librarians bookworms? No! Here are three whom we caught far from the library shelves. Barbara Elliott, left, models the dress she wore during the centennial celebration. We wonder if librarians of fifty years ago looked this chipper. Kay and Helen, right, got busy in December with bring- ing some Christmas spirit into the library. We caught them coming down the hall very purposefully heading for the li- brary showcase with this Christ- mas tree. -M ,Y fi?

School groups, churches, business houses, individuals, and community groups such as Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, etc., united in the idea that "We must make this the biggest and best celebration ever." And they did! In September we came back to school and it was off with the old and on with the new as we enjoyed our extra curri- cular pastimes in our brand new building.

Each of the four high school classes contributed money toward it, but as we can see, the brawny student council members here contributed the elbow grease. They are Roger Sherrard, Phil Huff, Richard Carlson and John Krueger. Student Council elections were held in the fall. Each candidate spoke for his running mate. There were four parties and some lively speeches. Before homecoming, we held a Sunday afternoon dinner meeting and had smorgasbord in Moline. The meeting was quite productive. Homecoming was postponed a week by flu but was a big success anyway. Six delegates and our advisor attended the Pekin District Student Council Conven- tion at Pittsfield. There we got some good ideas. M X N1 'W ' f 1 Homec mirig P957 , f ' V Dedication Program Music ..... . AlWood High School Band March, "Manhattan Beach" ....

We have tried to put to- gether some of the more interesting events which have happened here at A1Wood Highr Our goal has been to acknowledge the smiles and the tears, the hard work and the rewards, symbols that will, now and in years to come, be ever lasting memories. Our paper has been a success through the contributions of the different classes and students. Duane Bodeen wrote a sonnet for our October issue. Shirley Munson wrote a Christmas poem for our December issue. It is through the efforts of people like these that we have been able to publish a school paper. Donna Jo, Helen and Kay team up at the Sophomores are often solicited for help in mimeograph for one of the messier jobs of stapling the paper. Here it's Ellen Lenz, Vir- putting out a school paper. ginia Hammond, Joy Driscoll, and Pat Clarke The A1Wood Future Farmers of America Chapter strives to develop leadership among its members in order that our farmers of tomorrow will be capable of carrying out their responsibilities. The Chapter sponsors a Parent and Son Banquet. It sends delegates to the state and national FFA conventions, to the International Livestock Show and to Leadership Training School. Our Chapter held a record-breaking boar sale with the top boar selling for 35150 and 41 head averaging 3100, Our Parliamentary Procedure Team placed first in Section III competition over five other schools. Each year a state judging contest is held at the University of Illinois. Our fatstock judging team came within a few points of placing among the top ten teams in competition with 225 other ICSITIS.

Last spring Bill Wing entered the contest and received first place honors. He then went on to the District con- test. Below are the winners of the 1957 FFA Soil Judging Contest. The contest was held at Geneseo with nineteen teams competing with AlWood coming out on top. All six of the AlWood team's individual scores were. among the top ten. N99 Is that hard on your feet? Oh! What men we had for dates that night ! Our first money-making project of the year was a lunch stand at the FFA Calf Sale on September 21. We sponsored a sock hop on September 27 after our football game with Sherrard. On October 19 we were host to the Section 10 FHA fall rally. Approximately 350 girls were here. On November 20 we enjoyed games and refreshments when we invited our fathers to Daddy-Date-Night. At the FHA-FFA Christmas Dance on December 14 Marilyn Vermeire was named FFA Sweetheaxt, and Loren Swihart was named FHA Heart Throb. This year we invited our parents, brothers, and sisters to a family potluck on Jan- uary 15. Bob Ringberg entertained us with several movies. Patches and tears seemed to be the style at the Sadie Hawkins Dance on Marcy 21. Square dancing was a main event of the evening. On May 14 our mothers were special guests at the annual Mother and Daughter Tea. The mem- bers modeled clothes that they had made during the past year. The new officers were installed. We also had several night meetings during the year. At all our home basketball games the fans found us at our coat check stand. The King and Queen along with the Presidents.

Ta 53 Junior Class Presents "The Boarding House Reach" "The Boarding House Reach," the first play to be held in the new Senior High School gym, was given by the juniors on November 15,1958. The play, directed by Mrs. Barbara Rogers was a great success. For a long time, thirteen-year-old Wilbur Maxwell had wanted a bicycle. When his father was called away on a business trip and persuaded his mother to accompany him, Wilbur got an idea. He and his pal, Hercules, would open up a boarding house to earn money. So he phoned in his ad to the newspaper and, sure enough, there was a big response. Unfortunately, Mr. Max- well had forgotten some papers he needed, and he and Mrs. Maxwell came back in the middle of the night to find their house occupied. After a lot of excitement about bank robbers, at which time Mr. Maxwell was dragged off to jail by rough-and- tough policeman Connolly, everything was straightened out, and Wilbur finally got his bicycle, CAST Wilbur Maxwell, age thirteen .......

It was directed by Barbara Rogeis. The scene opened in the Tennyson home on a sunny afternoon in spring. Dan Tennyson is a brilliant boy, much smarter than his seventeen years, but he proves to be "The Perfect Idiot." While appearing in a television commercial he insults the sponsor and makes Mr. Latherby, the manufac- turer, furious. Dan withdraws from all his clubs. But this doesn't work because Jackie and his friends want Dan to tutor Puff, the athlete. Dan agrees to tutor Puff when he finds Puff susceptible to hypnosis. He has to rehypnotize Puff be- cause Puff loses all interest in sports, and Mr. Latherby becomes curious and tries on the earphones to the hypnotism set. The play becomes more hilarious every minute as Mr. Latherby hops around the stage thinking he is a rabbit. Dan hastens to revive Mr. Latherby. Finally, in the third act everyone is straightened out, even though Mr. Lath- erby once again insists someone is trying to steal his parsnips! 55 5' yy? if ff I , 55 V lrfllfl f , if ,, J ,,,A: 3, ,V 4 x , VmV, , i x I f .X t , . 4 1 W ' 1 1 .

The organization enjoyed a busy year and received many honors. The Blackhawk Division FTA held a workshop on October 19 at Augustana College, Rock Island. Dale Walsten led one of the dis- cussion groups and served at the registration desk. Our Chapter received a great honor when a Sophomore, Karen Swanson, was elected Vice-President of the Blackhawk Division FTA. The election took place in Rock Island on November 4, with AlWood having the largest delegation present. Karen will automatically become the Blackhawk Division President in 1959. A large group of AlWood I-'I'A'ers again attended the next meet- ing ofthe Division which was held at Rockridge. The local Chap- ter was host for the last Division meeting on April 28. Each mem- ber who has attended the Division meetings has gained inspiration and better knowledge of the teaching field through the various discussion groups and speakers representing several different phases of the educational profession. When the Ivan Shannon family was burned out of their home just before Christmas, our Chapter bought gifts for the Shannon children. The gifts were delivered to the family by the members pictured at the right. Several of the members have done some practice teaching this year and, sometime this year, the Chapter was planning to visit and tour a college as this annual was going to press. All in all, with the capable encouragement of our sponsor, Mrs. McGaughy, our Chapter is creating must interest in the teaching field.

College and Career Day Down to business again we find fbelowj a group of students from this area getting the lowdown on a career as an engineer, draftsman and architect. The instructor is Mr. William Appier, an architect from Rock Island. Alwood students included in the group are John Hougland, Jack Lambin, Bob Scott, Ed Gullstrand, Gary Kness, Cletus Johnson and Terry Swanson. College and Career Day is an annual project, sponsored jointly by Atkinson, Cambridge, Orion and Alwood. This year it was held here at AlWood on November 14, 1958.

AlWood then traveled to Aledo to compete in Regional Toumament play. We came through the toumament by capturing the Aledo Regional trophy by wins over R.M.A., Sherrard, and Aledo. At this time we had compiled 29 consecutive victories and had gained the right to advance to Geneseo to face Moline in sectional play. The Aces started off strong and held a 13-8 lead at the end of the first quarter. At the half we slipped behind 18-15, and when the final horn sounded we went down to our first defeat of the season 49-29. We then placed six men on the Cornbelt Conference All-Star Team. This was the first time in Cornbelt history that more than the starting five had received positions. Much of the credit for this impressive record goes to the fine coaching we have received from Eugene Behnke, Walter Minder and Albert Miller, We also appreciate the fine turnout to all games by our loyal fans and cheering section. The Freshman-Sophomore football team came through with a successful football season by winning four, tying one, and losing two, During the basketball season the team won three and dropped seventeen, but we are certain they will come through with better seasons in the coming years. Now that the basketball uniforms have been put away, all the boys are looking forward to a successful track season, and have a very good chance to win the Cornbelt Track Meet.
