Text from Pages 1 - 70 of the 1946 volume:

I'-i-'i' us 4 I am your book, and it is my every Wish that I bring back to you friends, compan- ions, joys, sorrows, and inspirations in this -your carefree, happy part of your life. You Will look back at me and realize what you did or what you could have done, as the case may be, in these few short years of your youth. I hope that you will take me as part of you With fond remembrance through the years to come. Mamma Ola R. Fleming, a member of the Board of Education for twelve years, was a man whose sincere appreciation of the finer qualities in life, Won for him the admira- tion of all. Mr. Fleming was Village Clerk for thirty years, and had successfully oper- ated the Fleming Garage since l9l9. I-le was a man of great initiative, keen fore- sight, and possessor of a radiant person- ality. The school and community seem equally at a loss Without his presence, and as Emerson so aptly expressed it: "All things through thee take nobler form And look beyond the earth, The mill-round of our fate appears A sun-path in thy worth." lack Monts 4472 .felbifiom Pu ' '4 Gffwe I have no doubt that you have found me, on occasions, an obnoxious perfectionist. I do not believe in doing any performance unless it is well done. Precise organization and execution are vital to success. I have tried to instill this same idea of perfection in each and every one of you. I want you to be consistently dissatisfied with your high school, your administration, and yourself - ever keeping in mind that the elimination of weaknesses will contribute much toward love, beauty, self-reliance, courage, and a host of other attributes not measured in money alone. If this sounds like too disagreeable an idea, please remember that it is possible to remain relatively pleasant, even though constantly discon- tented.

Shall we glimpse into the past? As Freshmen, the officers to guide our "wayward steps" were Marjorie Ryan, president, K. Helm, vice-president, and secretary-treasurer, Martin Stock. Gur advisers were Miss Snow and Miss Wildi. Ioan Blaase was chosen as freshman cheerleader and Margie Oye was nominated as a candidate for homecoming queen. Our' athletes, Gordon Galbreath and Robert Hendrick- son, won letters in basketball. We certainly proved to the student body that our class was not "green" Strengthened by transfers of Wallace Dicks and Donald Borders, our second year was studded with the narrow defeat of Ioan Blaase for queen, scholastic achievements, participation in every field of athletics, and activity in dramatics. Martin Stock, president, K Helm, vice-president, and David Wise, secretary-treasurer, were our able leaders along with the assistance of Mr. Glascock and Mr. Monts. Last year we were "jolly juniors," and what a year! Homecoming found Marjorie Ryan ascending the throne as queen. Our' play netted that needed cash for the "big event"-the Prom. After weeks of planning and hard work, the seniors wer'e feted to a royal feast and a dance fnuff said about thatl. However, "The Chinese Temple Garden" was very attractive. Wallace Dicks, president, and his corps of officers floan Blaase, Vice-president, and Martin Stock, secretary-treasurer! falso Miss Palmer and Mr. LaFief, advisersl marked the end of a very success- ful school year.

X152 o - - UCB SCENE: Heaven. TIME: the year 2000. CHARACTERS: Class of 1946 fHeaven comfortably furnished with soft, downy clouds and myriads of twinkling stars gleaming through their fleecy folds. Reclining on the crest of each cloud lie ethereal spirits strumming lazily on their golden harps. At the farthest end of the largest and most elegant cloud sits St. Peter, while attendant angels softly wave palm branches in the dewy air. Near at hand other attendants clash cymbals to announce the arrival of each new spirit.J Curtain Rises fOn one cloud twenty-three spirits sit anxiously watching the Pearly Gates as they slowly swing to and fro. Suddenly their countenances brighten as the Pearly Gates once more swing open and a light, graceful spirit floats noiselessly in. The twenty-three beckon to the new spiritl St. Peter-"Who art thou?" Spirit-"The spirit of Kenneth Karr." St. Peter-"Welcome, Karr. Take thy place among the twenty-three." fKarr drifts idly over to the twenty-three. They move aside and he takes his place in the midst of the chosen.l Vice-President Stock-"Where hast thou been these long years, President Karr?" Karr-"I have been struggling upward to gain this sublime peace." Stock-"Favor us, Karr, with a narrative of your adventures on earth." Karr-"After Ioan fpointing to Ioan Blaasel and I were married, we moved to Ceylon and took up one of the largest tea plantations. We were happy-but without even so much as a warning our native slaves rose up in rebellion-we had threatened to replace them with robots-de- stroyed our crops, burned our lovely home and ate our dear comrades, leaving m'e to spend the remaining years of my life in diligent search of my beloved bride, whom they carried off. But alas-'Twas of no avail. This is our first meet- ing since the fateful hour. But-tis well-come, Ioan." CHolds out his arms to her.l iVice-President Stock sees that President Karr is too agitated to take the chair, and continues to of- ficiate.J Stock-"Helm, as thou wert an apostle of yon St, Peter, bless this reunited couple and wish them God Speed." fTwenty-three angelic voices rise in congratula- lion, but one spirit alone remains unmoved by the ioyous greeting. Vice-President Stock addresses the delinquent memberl Stock-"Much as I hate to say this, yet it's quite true-yon Karr is guilty of-of-of breach of promisel In Heaven's name, reveal your mys- terious past, womanl" 116: Mary Ellen Canfield-"Alas, too soon after H .S. days were ended Karr came weekly to woo me, I was happy in my new-found love. But alack, alackl I was doomed to a lonely womanhood, as I never could love another but Kenneth. Imagine my horror when I read in the papers one morning- 'Popular Young Couple Elopes' upon reading further, I discovered that my sup- posedly true love had deserted me-yon Iezebel fpointing to Ioanl enticed him! See, Stock, he did not tell it alll fAll this time Karr is holding the fainted Ioan in his arms. Stock takes advantage now of the time and tells the class that while on earth he spent his time in writing beautiful poems, always being called the People's Poet.l fPresident Karr finally revives Ioan and informs Vice-President Stock that he is ready to take over. After calling the meeting to order, he suggests that the motion be made for each. member of the class to tell what had been his lot on earth. Themotion being carried, the class comedian, Eddie Hendrickson, opens the discussion thusgl Hendrickson-"Well, when I was attending Poly Tech., preparatory to my trip to China, I jazzed around quite a lot, and one evening, in my aimless wanderings, I chanced to meet a chic, an entrancing little Frenchyu girl. She told me how she had been anxiously waiting and search- ing for her big American sweetheart who had told her to come to America after the War and he would join her. But when I saw her-Oh! Brother! I did my best and the best was that I succeeded in making her forget that big bronzed boob who had made love to her in France. After I finished at Poly Tech., we went immediately to Hong Kong where my little Frenchbride and I spent the rest of our lives." Karr-"Excellent, excellent. I remember reading about that. Now, another one." fLapse of time. No one speaks.l Karr-"Now, Fern Davenport, let's hear of your career below." Fern-"Well, it's a long story. I went to the Uni- versity of Illinois, majoring in Spanish, and at the close of my four years-fwas so proficient that the Dean offered me cllrposition on the facul- ty as instructor of Spanish. Later I was Dean of Girls." fWith a disgusted sigh she sits down.l Karr-"That's too bad, Fern. We never thought your life would be like that when you were in school with us. But such is life. Quick, an- other one. Duane Von Lanken-fdrawlingl "Ah, Ah rawther hate to tell you of mah careeh on earth, for feah you may consider me conceitedf' fsmiling languidlyl "Ah suppose you remember Mar- garet O'Brien-after she grew up I was her 54 leading man with Parafox Pictures-Ah was considered very good, especially by the fairer sex. Mah promising career was cut short one day. While making a Western serial, I was walking across Grand Canyon on a tight rope-a feat which Ah could do most easily. But as Ah was about to gain the other side, Ah saw Margaret-God rest her sweet soul in peace- fall from a precipice. Ah hurried, lost mah balance, and fsighs from the girlsl was smashed to atoms on the rocks below." Karr-"Gosh, that was awful. I-Iow about a gayer one " Norma lean Somm-"All right. My life was con- nected with the movies, but in a different way from Duane's. After Gypsy Rose Lee died, Holly- wood went wild looking for a fan-dancer. I spent the rest of my life in the movies, after making good first as a fan-dancer. I was most noted for my portrayal of Mati I-Iari in a his- torical picture about World War I. Karr-"Fine, fine. Next?" Phyllis Suhl-"Iuanita and I went to Chicago and started a millinery shop. We married two French brothers, who suggested we open branch shops in New York, San Francisco, Lon- don, and Paris. All went well, which gave us time to develop our ambition-the standardizing of women's clothes. We accomplished this am- bition in 1992. This was our most prized deed." Karr-"I don't think that was such a smart move. Variety is the spice of life, you know-Hah, hah." INo one laughs, and Karr's joke falls flat.J Karr-"All right, every dog has his day. Who's next?" Eugene Hoke-"As you all know, I started out to the Seminary, studying to be a missionary. The church I went to had exceedingly radical mem- bers, and frequently raided taverns and other palaces of sin. It was during one of these raids that I discovered I had some pugilistic talent. So I at once embarked on a boxing ca- reer. Wanna make sump'n of it?" fHoke ruf- fles up like a turkey gobbler, and Karr shrinks back in fear.i Karr-"Take it easy, Bruiser, I didn't mean to annoy you. Now sit down and listen to Bill Oye." Bill Oye-":Well, right after graduation I began experimenting around with rocket planes. After sending several radar-controlled rockets to the moon, I tried it myself. However, just as we were coming within the magnetic field of the moon, the man in the moon, in a fit of hic- coughs from eating too much green cheese, jolted the moon just a fraction out of line, and I sailed right by, clear on up here to heaven. I'm now noted as being one of the only three men to ever enter Heaven without dying. See my medal?" Karr-"That sure is a pretty medal, Bill." tI..apse of time. Nobody speaks! "Aw, come on kids. We ain't got all day." Maudine Dukeman-"After graduation Mary Ann and I became nutrition experts. Becoming em- ployed by the Mayo Cousins to supervise food preparation in their hospital, started by their grandfathers, the original Mayo Brothers, we soon found them fascinating and Mary Ann married Kenny Mayo, and I married Benny. Our sons, Duke and Luke, today manage the Mayo Second Cousin's Hospital in the same Iocation." Karr-"Now, that wasn't bad at all. Why don't the rest of you speak up like that?" Bob Ellison-"Well, I was just trying to figure out where to start. I started out as a clerk in a dry goods store, then as teller in a bank, and then followed two weeks in a filling station. All my life I was bounced from pillar to post, and back again. It was on my deathbed that the doctor told me what had been the matter. It seems that I'd been near-sighted all my life: so much so that every time I'd gotten a job and tried to keep books, I had put the debits in the credits column, and the credits in the debits column. I ask you, how was I to know?" Karr-"Ruff, Bob. But buck up. That little blonde two rows over is reward enough for all your suffering on earth, I should think. She's been making eyes at you for a long time now. Why don't you do something about it? Next casel" Wally Dicks-"After graduating from the U. of I. I got a whale of a swell job coaching basketball at the University of Iowa. Boy, those cornfed boys make good material. My teams were un- beaten for my last forty years on earth." Karr-"Wonderful record, Dicks. Now, who's next?" Margie Oye-"I suppose you all know I was always inclined to athletics. I became an expert in lifesaving, and during one of my most famous impromptu rescues, I rescued Marshall Field VIII. He immediately fell madly in love with me, and we were married. I then retired from lifesaving and became not only a socialite in the "400", but also a faithful, loving housewife." Karr-"Sounds wonderful. What happened to you, Keith Rich? You have sat there all afternoon without saying a word," Keith Rich-"Guess I got that naturally. You see, I was disappointed in love, and became a her- mit. I never saw another human being as long as I lived. Mighty lonely. But I did invent an important machine during my hermitage, to control radio controls on cars, boats, airplanes, etc." Karr-"Wonderful, Keith. Too bad no one will be able to find your hideaway and utilize your invention. Guess no one would understand it fContinued on page 71l c 17 9 Kenneth Artis Richard Bilbrey Richard Bradford Noel Dicks Dolores Emst Robert Fleming Harold Hendrickson Iames Hendrickson Carol Howell 118s Hoyle Carman Lindsey Daugherty Jesse Davis Myron Haney Bettyiane Hansen Ellen Hendrickson Doris Lacy Evelyn Moody Iohn D.

Everything was new and strange to them at first, but, despite this fact and with the help of the upperclassmen, they soon became attached to their surroundings. To cheer the boys of their class, as well as others, on to victory in the athletic events, Bettyjane Hansen was chosen. Ellen Hendrickson was nominated queen of the homecoming event to represent this class. Several of the members of the class joined the various clubs and organiza- tions of the school. They selected from their class, Kenneth Artis, president, Lindsey Daugher- ty, vice-president, and Evelyn Moody as secretary and treasurer, to run the business affairs of their class. To lead and advise them in these affairs, they had Miss Diel and Mr. Wise. Again in l944 they entered the doors of "dear old A.T.H.S.", not as "freshies" but as unrestricted sophomores. There were twenty-eight of them. This year they chose as their class officers, Lindsey Daugherty, president, Hoyle Carman, vice-president, and Noel Dicks, secretary and treasurer. Their advisers were the same. Their class was well represented on the honor roll. Marianna and Carol won second and third in the vocal music contest which was held at Charles- ton. Bettyjane was nominated as queen of their class. The theme of their homecoming float was "Harvest Moon and the Horn of Plenty". Ellen entertained the class with a Weiner roast at her home in the fall. During the second semester -the class enjoyed a party in the oldgym. K Nearly all the members of the class belonged to one or more of the school organizations. With two years of high school experience behind them, the junior Class Class of l945-1946 successfully concluded their activities. They promoted an assembly program, and the junior-Senior' Banquet and Prom. The junior Play, "That Crazy Smith Family", was presented with much acclaim on October 10. During the year, junior class members participated in sports, music contests, and were present in all student organizations. Every member did his part in helping to raise money for the junior-Senior Banquet and Prom. To raise the money, the juniors sold hot dogs and cokes at the ball games. On january 26, their hopes had come true. Their class rings had arrived, at last. The second semester found them with twenty-seven members instead of the twenty-six that they started with in the fall. Irene Vaughn was their new member. Class officers for the year were: President, Lindsey Daugherty, vice- president, Mary Williams, and secretary and treasurer, Doris Lacy. Their advisers were the same. 41209 Anne Beckman Vicann Binegar lanece Blaase Iecm Daugherty Byron Davenport Edward Davis Robert Harden Robert Higginson Sarah Mast GZIDD lane Craig lean Craig Harold Crist LaVon Ends Paul Fleming Lerue Galbreuth Lois Pcmkey Keith Phillips Margaret Pyle Marjorie Rich Olin Riggs Iohrx Schroclr Lee Upstone Norma Vaughn Alberta Watson 1229 Russell Seitz Rose Stock Ella Belle Trower Class Officers and Advisers Left to Right: Ella Belle Trow- er, Presidentg Robert Hard- en, Secretary-Trecsurerg Rose Stock, Vice-President Miss Ochs, Adviser Emp We Sophomores, when "Green" freshmen, a year ago, started out with the greater percentage of girls composing our class number. Although We have had several losses and gains, the girls are still more numerous. Last year we chose as our officers: Lerae Galbreath, president, Byron Davenport, vice-president, and lean Daugherty, secretary and treasurer. Miss Ochs was chosen as our class adviser. During our "Green" year, such things happened as: our float winning first prize, LaVon Eads being candidate for Homecoming Queen, Rose Stock and Lois Pankey playing roles in "Mumba Iumbo"g being Well represented on the Honor Roll and in the Music Contest, and all of us participating in various clubs and athletics. This year, our "yellow" one, we have as our class officers: Ella Belle Trow- er, presidentg Rose Stock, vice-president, and Bobby Harden, secretary and treasurer. As our class adviser, we have again chosen Miss Ochs. Lerae Galbreath was our candidate for Queen this year, and our float won second prize. We are again represented on the Honor Roll, but not as highly as last year. As you continue through this book we hope that you Will also notice that the Sophomores are honored by having two young ladies in the popularity contest.

T. H. S., was organized this fall and the first issue published in October, l945. lt has been published monthly throughout the year. The paper is sponsored by the fourth year English class, however material from all students is used. The faculty sponsor is Miss Allison who is responsi- ble for its organization. The editorial staff is composed of: Gene Haney, editor-inechief, Delores Ernstg Marianna Ritchey, Howard Rigg, and Eugene Hake. The purpose of the Arthurian is to bring a vivid description of all phases of school life to the reader. A paper of this kind also helps to develop value able journalistic ability in the reporters. Such items as the Knights' Observa- tions and the Round Table make each issue doubly interesting to the reader. On October l3 several Arthurian staff members, accompanied by Miss Allison, attended an interesting program at the lllinois State High School Press Associations annual meeting in Champaign. This is a state conference attended by all Illinois high school journalists. By use of lectures and movies, students learned many new valuable methods of journalism. The Arthurian is a member of the National Scholastic Press Association which annually sponsors an all-American National Critic Contest. The paper has been entered in this contest, however results of the rating will not be received until April. Q4 32 bb Bam!

The F. H, A. is an organization for girls interested in the study of first aid, health, nutrition, interior decorating, and clothing. There are 41 girls in the club who have studied Home Economics in the past or are now enrolled in a course of homemaking. We enjoyed a successful year under the guidance of Miss Ochs, who has been our adviser for two years. The officers of the club are: Ioan Blaase, president, Bettyjane Hansen, vicevpresidentg Phyllis Von Lanken, secretary, and Lerae Galbreath, treasurer, The club has been very active this year. One of the first things was the initiation of the freshmen girls. One of the several pot luck suppers that we had was the Christmas party, Where we played games, exchanged gifts, and afterwards went to the ball game. The club earned some extra money by serving at the band clinic. The F. F. A. boys and the F. H, A. girls had lots of fun and work putting on a play. The club has adopted the official F. H. A. pin. Some of the girls have already received their pins. One can readily see that the F. H. A. is one of the busiest organizations and some day these Future Homemakers will discard the future and become the Hornemalcers of America. 44352 0.14. .

Calisthenics came first, passing and blocking drill, signal practice and then scrimmage. Night football was introduced into Arthur during the past season which proved to be very successful. We have one of the best lighted fields in the Okaw. Although the Knights record was not very impressing, you can note that they were one of the best defensive teams in the conference. They were beaten several times by a few points, but three touchdowns was the most scored upon them during one game. They also have two ties to their credit. One of these, the Nokomis game, will undoubtedly stand out in our mind. The score was 7-7. Mr. Neville came during mid-season and gave Mr. Warner ample aid. Under the direction of Mr. Warner, and Mr. Neville, the football squad played fine games throughout the season. Next year the prospects look .aiu good and we are sure they will do their best.

They proved to be a better team than a lot of people thought at this time last year. They got second place in the Moultrie County and Okaw Valley Tournaments. They also took the Okaw Valley Conference. This is the first undisputed title the Knights have obtained. They advanced to the semi-finals of the Mattoon Regional Tournament by defeating Arcola but were nipped by lvtattoon, the regional champs. This season the Knights had something they haven't had for a while and that was height. They made good use of it and were very seldom out rebounded. Another interesting note is that at one time during the season each of the first six men was high scorer of the game. Arthur did very well against their two strongest rivals-uAtwood and Sullivan. They won two out of three with Atwood and captured three of three from Sullivan. We hope that it continues in this manner, The Pages showed also that they could play good ball. They turned in some fine games this year. Next year, when they are Knights, they will be ready to meet the enemy with confidence if they improve as they did this year. The squad worked hard under the leadership of Coach Neville and the fans are happy over the outcoine of the season and indeed appreciate the work of both the squad and coach. 44 47 PD 7...

Now let's hear from Marg. Ryan." Marg Ryan-"After minor success as chorus girls, Phyllis Honn and I went to Broadway to look for work. Taking jobs as secretaries to two big New York producers, we finally got a chance, and made good. By the way, we married the producers. We can never thank lack Monts enough for our commercial courses in school. lust look where they got us!" Karr-"Say, where's Howard Rigg? I haven't seen him yet." Rigg-"Right here, Kenny. I was just over in the Chemistry Department, doping out a few new formulas for the next world. Guess it's just my earthly nature coming to the surface. Of course you know I was Professor of Chemistry at the U. of I. until my death." Karr-"Of course, I remember that." There is a sudden crashing, grinding, and the roar of a Pontiac engine, and over the shattered re- mains of the Pearly Gates comes a 1937 Pontiac, slightly the worse for wear.l St. Peter-"Who darest destroy the Pearly Gates of Heaven?" 4712 Don Borders-"Ah, button your lip, grandpa. Hello, kids. My wife, Marg Shaw, and I decided to take a trip up Pike's Peak the other day. We just got to the top when the engine fell out, the fenders fell off, and-well, the darned thing just fell apart, that's all. We were all deqd by that time, and it didn't seem much use walking, so we just rode up here." Karr-"Nothing like convenience, is there? Well, if this is all-" Doris Watson and Helen Kroll-"Hey, wait for us. We didn't want to miss out on hearing all this, but husbands are such fun, you know. We just cou1dn't bear to leave them." Karr-"Yes, I know just how it is. You were lucky, though. I had to say goodbye to two wives. Where's Perry Beachy?" Angel-"He was doing so well as a preacher down on earth the Lord decided to lengthen his life another fifty years." Karr-"Well, everyone else is present, I think. Any- body else absent?" Angel-"Yeah, Some louse named Haney and the faculty." fCurtainJ 14aJa7aa71!14
