Tl-IE YEAR is here for 92 seniors who, but a short time aqo, were aoinq through the Freshman initiation. The Words of Roy Elam, the president of the class during its first eventful year still ring reminiscently in our ears. "We may he qreen, but we're qrowinqln Thus we did qrow from mere meophytes to sober old seniors. Many of our original number are now in their country's service. So that the names of these, our comrades, and those who preceeded them in freedom's fiqht may forever have a hallowed place in the annals of A-I, we proudly present the l944 edition of "An-lo-Co-l-li." 5555 :EEEISEEQ-. ::gg:1:5:f:5:5., x X X N NX Nl R 'S '-.

Known as the Ravine Theater its terraced slopes provide great seating capacity, and the excellent acoustic prop- erties enable the music department to present concerts in a spot ot rare scenic beauty. Ornamental trees and shrubs, presented by various graduating classes further enhance its natural beauty.

As green Freshmen, we entered A-I., September 1940, with 164 students. Our hopes were high and our intentions were commendable, but yet we were a little frightened of the big, bad, Seniors and teachers, about whom we had heard many stories. As time went on we found these so-called "bad" people were a fine, outstanding class of boys and girls, men and women. We held our first election with the following officers elected: Boy Elam, presi- dentp Anna lane Duck, vice-president, Martha lane Weiss, secretary, lane Tripp, treasurer. The Freshman deans were: Mrs. Ella lane Pickles Sanders: Miss Mary Holmes: Miss Iosephine Bunchg Marshall Howell: and Paul Hough- ton. We had many great experiences and one of them was when our small, but mighty, president stood up before his first assembly and said, "We may be green, but we're growing." That one speech carried us through the first year without any difficulty. ln September, 1941, we became gay, young sophomores. We had be- come accustomed to the school, and now we felt that we were really an im- portant part of it. Again we held our election of officers with the following results: Bichard Stephens, presidentg Martha lane Weiss, vice-president: Betty Ellen Horn, secretaryg Wanda Lee Smithson, treasurer. In place of Mr. Howell, we had a new dean Samuel Hill. The activities of our class were numerous with many of us taking part in the Speech Plays, showing what they had to offer in the line of talent. We were also very proud of the fact that we had contributed several boys to both the football and basketball teams. Another thing that happened this year was' that on the day of December 8, 1941, our country went to war against lapan and Germany. This was to affect our class in the future because of the induction of some of our boys to fight for "Uncle Sam." ln September, 1942, we entered A-l., as jolly Iuniors. We were jolly because now we were upperclassmen. We felt important because this year, finished successfully, would mark achievement on our steady climb in high school. There were the important things such as the Iunior-Senior reception and the lunior play. As in the past year, officers were elected at the begin- ning of the year. They were as follows: Bill Bobins, president: Betty Davis, vice-presidentg Martha lane Weiss, secretary: Kathryn Appel, treasurer. We started out to raise money. Our finest financial success was the Iunior play, -12- If e X X It H 90" 45 ' 1 wibvawai ,tj I I il if if "til N l Nw "The Daring Young Man," with the cast as follows: Roy Elam, Sussette Wil- son, Amy Dee Rudolph, Allen Rudolph, Iane Harper, Bill Robins, Martha Iane Casper, Charles McDaniel, Houston Casper, Betty Horn, Claudia I. Hill, Gil- bert Cherrick, Ernestine Vincent, Bob Hill, and Anna May Wahl. After the play came the Iunior-Senior reception which was a big success. The gym was beautifully decorated in the theme of a flower garden. The reception was well attended and turned out to be one of the grandest eve- nings ever spent at A-I. The Iunior year also marked another asset to us because of having three boys from the Iunior class - William "Doc" Aber- nathy, "Moon" Pickett, and Carroll "Goofy" Belcher go to the state finals on the A-I basketball team. This year we also had four members of our class inducted into the armed forces. They were as follows: Roy Elam, Marines: Keller Ioiner, Army: Byron Lasley, Armyp and Carl Pickett, Army. The four boys left our school with the entire class backing them with their best wishes. ln September, l943, 93 grave old Seniors entered the portals of A-I to begin their last year of high school. There were many duties ahead of the Seniors this year such as: having their pictures made, preparing for class night, graduation, and many more activities which were to end the last of our high school days. We started out the first of the year by electing class officers. They were as follows: Carroll Belcher, presidentg Bill Abernathy, vice-president: Nancy Davis, secretary: Phyllis Vaughn, treasurer. After this came the appointing by the president of several committees for the different duties to be performed this year. As in the past years, our Senior class was well represented in the field of sports. Many of the Senior boys went out and donned their football and basketball suits to represent A-I for their last time. For our Senior Play, we selected the great Broadway hit, "The Man Who Came to Dinner," with the following people in the cast: Sussette Wil- son, Martha I. Casper, Gene Wright, Chares McDaniel, Amy Dee Rudolph, Ann Leib, Anna Iane Duck, Lucille Gunn, Allen Rudolph, Phyllis Vaughn, Ierry Grant, Iean Garrott, Nancy Davis, Leon Sweitzer, Bob Hill, Iane Harper, Gilbert Cherrick, Iack Bizzel, Gerald Engelhart, Carol Henry, Virginia Caraker, Wilberta Eastman, Claudia I. Hill, Millie Mae Brown, and Lovilla McKinney. lt was one of the finest plays with the largest cast that had ever been presented on the A-I stage. This year, we again lost a few of our boys to the armed forces. They were as follows: Norval Kelly, Navy: Laverne Coffman, Army: David Daisy, Navy: and Iack West, Army. Also, many of the Senior boys have enlisted and will soon be ready to fight on the greatest team that has ever been composed, the United States armed forces. May we all wish these boys God's speed and pray they come home soon. Now that most of us have completed our quest of knowledge that we were intending to have, we leave A-I with the feeling that when our time comes to help and work in this great democracy of ours, we will not fail. As our class motto implies, "In Ourselves Our Future Lies," let us go forth into the world and strive to do our best and to become the finest citizen that we can become. ...13- , if -f l G u ,riff vw'-' ,.,' enior CALM g :J Q uf' , - 1 .E .-'?, A A t 1 X 'X Ai .,.. will , lf M Q V , r W 4557 f1: ,,g, V, f Q, -I K: ,V.. tg, 1 f A V: First Bow f Bill Abernathy, Boloert Adams.

At our first class meeting, guided and assisted by Mr. Loomis, our chairman dean, and his assistants, Miss Sauer, Miss Brickey, Mr. Naff- zigger and Mr. Askew, we elected class officers. Earl Smick was elected president: Donald Wayne Boswell, vice-president: Dimple Elam, secretary: and lim Williams, treasurer. As the saying goes, "Those were the good old days." We had parties galore and were what you would call a "peppy" class. Several of our boys went out for various sports and met with fair success. At least, they were thought of as excellent prospects for the next year. ln l943, only 74 sophomores made their way back to A-I for another year of hard work. Some moved away, others went to work, and still others mar- ried and, sad to say, left us. lim Williams, treasurer for the year of 1942-43, was killed in an accident, and Charlie Navin was badly hurt. lim will always be remembered by his classmates for his "sunny" disposition, willingness to co-operate, and the fine attitude he had toward his class. This year, under the leadership of Miss Brickey, chairman dean, Mrs. Sivia, Miss Schwartz, Mr. Askew, and Mr. Loomis, We once again elected class officers. There Wasn't much need, however, because Earl Smick was elected president once again, Donald Wayne Boswell, vice-president, Dimple Elam, secretary: and Katherine Williams, treasurer. fSounds like a pretty neat racket, hul'1?l Several of our boys again went out for basketball and football. This time, they were generally successful, placing six on varsity teams. May will end one more year for our class, and each and every member will, no doubt, agree that this has been one enjoyable year for all. -24- .SDOIGAOIWI MB.

Everyone gathered in the study hall to sing "Where, Oh Where" for the first time. The faculty was introduced and the freshmen went to meet their new home room teachers and fresh- men deans who were: Mrs. Edna Gordon, Miss Elizabeth Buell, Miss Virginia Bradley, Miss Frances Hunsaker, and Mrs. Irene Wright. School started with a "bang" for some of the boys. 'Those who went out for football were: Donald Lewis, David Rendle- man, Bob Bader, Bob Womick, and Boy Bendleman, with Don Boyd and Bill Craft making the varsity. Later the class officers were elected. They were: Nancy Carter, president: Bill Craft, vice-president, Katherine Dusch, sec- retaryg and Ernestine Tompkins, treasurer. The freshmen cheerleader was Iohn Norman Keller. Our class was also honored by having the senior class to select their cheerleader from our class. Nancy Carter won the popular choice of the seniors. Two members added to the Board of Control from our class were: David Bendleman and Bob Hindman. Finally, after several successful enterprises, the freshmen students of H43-44" completed their initial step in high school and are ready to become known as "gay, young sophomores." -261 jrwhman ome oomd MBS.

Although track was dropped several years ago at A-I, plans have been made to revive the sport this spring and the school has entered track meets at Marion, Herrin, and other Illinois schools. We regret that, at the time our annual goes to press, little informa- tion is available on the progress of the Wildcat track team of 1944. However, with only two varsity sports, the Anna-Ionesboro Wildcats have received state-wide recognition in the past two years by sending two consecutive basketball teams to the State Finals at Champaign and by field- ing one of the outstanding football teams of Illinois in the season just past. As an added honor, two members of both varsity teams were given the dis- tinction of being selected in both the all-state basketball and football polls. Carroll Belcher was given honorable mention on the all-state football team and was then selected on the second all-state basketball team. Bill Aber- nathy was given honorable mention on both the all-state football and basket- ball teams. Probably the greatest claim to fame made by any A-I athlete in the history of the school was made by Belcher, who, in the first game of the 1944 State Basketball Tournament, set a new individual single game scoring record for tournament play with 33 points against Marseilles. In addition to the varsity sports, the school offers an extensive intra- mural sports program under the supervision of Coach Paul Houghton. Touch football, Basketball, Volleyball, and Softball "round robins" are carried on between competitive home rooms while individual honors may be earned in handball, table tennis, and badminton. The Physical Education program at A-I consists of boys and girls classes with each student being required to attend these classes twice a week. Boy's classes combine calisthenics with many indoor and outdoor competitive sports throughout the year. Girls classes consist of dancing, field hockey, and many other sports.

This record consisted of four victories over conference opponents. The defeats were at the hands of Murphys- boro, the conference champion, and Eldorado, a strong non-conference team. ln conference play, the Wildcats finished in second place with four vic- tories and one defeat. Murphysboro went through their second successive undefeated conference season to again become conference champion.

KCLJLQMCL .S7ll,l'l'Ll'l'l6Ll'y For the second consecutive year, the A-I basketball team closed a successful season by again going to the State Tournament. This tournament was held in Huff Gymnasium on the Illinois University campus, Champaign. After defeating Marseilles in the first game of the 1944 tournament by a score of 55-34, the Wildcats again lost to the eventual state run- ner-up - Elgin. ln the 1943 tournament, Moline defeated the Wildcats in their first game and then went on to lose to Paris in the championship game. The 1944 state champion was the Taylorville Tornadoes with the outstanding record of 45 consecutive victories. Since the An-Io-Co-I-li was not published in 1943, short summary of last year's success- ful season has been included in this edition. Some of the season's high points were: an overall record of 20 victories and 9 defeats, fourth place in the conference with five wins and five losses, and championship trophies in the Union County Tournament, the Hqgional Tournament, and the Sectional Tournament, The tearn's high scorers were: Bill Eddleman, 355 points, Carroll Belcher, 325 points, Bill Abernathy, 203 points: and Carl Pickett, 152 points. The season record of the 1943-44 basketball team was 21 victories and 10 defeats. This record was composed of six victories and four defeats in conference play, nine victories and three defeats in tournament play, and six victories against three defeats in regular season non-conference play. The Wildcats collected championship trophies in the fifteenth Annual Union County Tournament, the Regional Tournament, and the Sectional Tournament. In the Centralia Holiday Invitational Tournament, the Wildcats lost the only two games they play- ed, to Pontiac and Charleston. The varsity five of this season compiled a field goal shooting percentage of .327 and a free throw percentage of .542 while scoring a total of 1150 points. These percentages are truly outstanding in that last season's had an almost identical record and is unusually high compared to most team records. Individual honors for the 1943-44 season must be given to Co-Captain Carroll Belcher for his outstanding performance throughout the season and especially in the State Tourna- ment. Against Marseilles in the first game of the tournament, Belcher scored 33 points to break all previous individual single game scoring records for state tournament play. He also tied a record of long standing by scoring 14 field goals. To climax this excellent season, Belcher was selected on the second all-state tournament team and Co-Captain Bill Aber- nathy was given honorable mention. The basketball letters were awarded at the end of the season with seven of the letter- men returning next year. Players ending the athletic career at A-I with the close of the basketball season were: Carroll Belcher, Bill Abernathy, lames Lamer, and Charles Lewis. -3 3-. Carroll Belcher, Bill Abernathy Co-Captain Iames Lamer Iames Martin Wayne Dusch Co-Captain Rex English olbffermen 1943-44 CARROLL "Goofy" BELCHER - Forward, Co-Captain of the 1943-44 Wildcats. A four-letter basketball player of outstanding ability. Com- piled highest number of total points for season of any recent Wildcat player. Selected on second all-state tournament team. BILL "Doc" ABERNATHY - Forward. The team's other Co-Captain. "Doc" made up for his lack of size with unusual speedand aggressive- ness. A good shot and a "ball hawk. REX "Snag" ENGLISH - Center. A player who developed rapidly dur- ing the season to become an important varsity five member about mid- way of the season. One of the main reasons for the Wildcats' spectacu- lar late season drive. Should be one of the best in the conference next year. IEAN "lap" CUNNINGHAM - Guard. Probably the most consistent player on the team, lean could be depended upon for a good performs ance at all times. In spite of his small size, he was an excellent re- bounder and a fine shot from "way out." IAMES "lim" LAMER - Guard. A transfer student spending his first year at A-I, Iimmy was an important factor in the Wildcats' success as he was a fine rebounder and defensive player. Only 5' ll" tall, he was still the largest man on the varsity five. EARL SMICK - Reserve Center and Forward. A good shot and a de- pendable reserve. Was on the varsity five during a large part of the season. IAMES MARTIN - Reserve Guard. A quiet, soft-spoken, dependable reserve who "delivered the goods." Should be a valuable asset to the 1944-45 Wildcats. LEROY "Leepy" RENDLEMAN - Reserve Forward. An excellent shot and a fine team player. Will try to fill the gap left by Belcher next year. WAYNE DUSCI-I - Reserve Forward. An experienced reserve who did a fine job of replacing varsity forwards on several occasions. An ex- cellent prospect for next year. TOM PEELER - Reserve Center. The only freshman on the team, Tom should be one of the Wildcats' top men in 1944-45. CONFERENCE STANDINGS FOUR HIGH SCORERS T W L P .

HISTORY OF BIOLOGY CLUB The Biology Club, sponsored by Miss Elizabeth Buell was organized in 1941. The object of this club is to create and foster the best interests of science together with the spirit of American democracy. This club is used to stimulate student project work which merits entrance in the exhibits presented and judged on science field day. This club, called the B-Z-B club, joined the Iunior Academy of Science in l942. There are 35 members in this club and meetings are held the fourth Wednesday oi each month. Ten cents dues are paid by each member for membership in the Southern Illinois Division of the Iunior Academy of Science. ....53..

DRUM MAIORS Norma lean Coffman Vanita Ruth Rader Camille Baker CAoru:i The chorus consists ot twenty-four members, and has done exceedingly well with such a small number of students partici- pating. They have given a Fall Concert and are planning to pre- sent a Spring Recital. They have also sung for the Chamber of Commerce. Other members have entertained at local Par- ent Teachers Association meetings. This year, A-I was repre- sented at West Frankfort in the Sectional Concert. MHJ The A-I Band got oft to a good start this year with about fifty members. Miss Rita Schwartz, our new director proved to be a fine teacher. The band started out with mostly new mem- bers, incuding 16 freshmen, 17 sophomores, 7 juniors, and 4 seniors. Miss Schwartz organized a band club in which Bill Robins was elected president: Rosalee Casper, vice-presidentp and lim Pearl, secretary-treasurer. As in previous years, a pep band of 25 members was selected to play at basketball games, pep meetings, etc. This year, due to the lack of string instruments, we did not have an orchestra, but instead organized an ensemble group which was similiar to an orchestra. . -55- Rex Enqlish.

Among the extra things sponsored this year was the Song and Yell Contest, which added several new yells and the "Three Little Fishes" song to A-I's collection. The most ambitious undertak- ing, perhaps, was Homecoming - a responsibility which the Pep Club shared with the Press Club. The "Horse and Buggy" Homecoming parade, the crowning ceremony, the Homecoming dance after the game - all were Work, but fun! This year's Pep Club has been complimented often on its enthusiasm and good sportsmanship. To its many members, this has been a busy year and a satisfying one. -57.- First Row - Iames Newton, Bob Kohler, Louis Kelly, Bill Bullock, Eugene Isom, Ray Casey, Gordon Nobles, Ir. Mus graves.

The A-I Chapter of F.F.A. has fifty-two members this year. Because of the War, the judging and athletic teams have been greatly reduced. Even so, the F.l:'.A. carried out a very successful program of ath- letics. ln addition, the club sponsors basketball, softball, and livestoclcjudg- ing teams. Several parties are held throughout the school year. This year, the l:'.F.A. was very active in the enrollment of individuals in the various government-supervised courses such as welding, etc. Highlighting the club's social program is a Father-Son Banquet held in the spring ot each school year. -53- 31' f 6 Q I G '57 llx 0 OO ' ,'f2QRXiW I x QQ fraqiy 1.
