memories of this, our Alma Mater,
may have faded and dimmed in your
mind, close your eyes to reality, board our
train, turn the pages, and lo! you are back
again to old scenes, to happiest hours.

O THE lure of strange lands, to the
thrill of alien faces, and to the
spirit of world fellowship as a con-
tinuation of the friendships and fellow-
ships Which the class of 1931 has shared,
we dedicate this, the nineteenth volume
of the Speculum.

TRATFORD - ON - AVON-that little town
which llaunts so gaily to the world its ownership
of Shakespeare. Our guides lead us to the home
where Shakespeare lived and dreamed and wrote his
plays that were to live and inspire men through the
ages. And while the guide shows us the relics and
wonders of the house, our minds eagerly skip from ob-
ject to object seeing that great man in imagination
writing his whimsical plays that make us laugh and
think. Here in this chair by this window, perhaps, his
eager mind thought of Midsummer Night's Dream.
In the hurry and bustle of our leaving, how good it is
to have guides to hold us Hrmly, to help us toward the
goal of our quest. Our faculty, showing us the won-
ders and relics of the Arts and Sciences, are causing
our minds to skip eagerly on for more knowledge.

GALA DAY! The boat races at Oxford are
about to begin. Silence pervades the sleeping
river broken only by the low guttural murmur
of the crowd and the rattle of oars raised in salute by
rival crews. Over at one side the time-keepers are
counting, "Ten seconds gone-five seconds-three-
two-one-row!" The gun cracks! The cry of
"They're off!" rises from the crowd in a low unform-
ed and uneven roar that grows sharper and fiercer as
eighty brown gleaming backs bend nicely in unison,
and the boats shoot up the river toward their goal, six
feverish minutes away.
The race begun four years ago by our seniors is now
ended, the goal reached, and the journey through life
but begun. They can look back now to their freshman
year, to that time when the way was pointed to them to
what they felt sure thenwas to be their future. We
need only say, now, "Well rowed, seniorsll'

Junior Class History
URING the past few years little has been heard concerning the class of
'32 but this year under the guidance of Messrs. McAfoos, Miller and Cravens
and the Misses Morrison, Bredlow, Gleason, and Mrs. Lewis, it has been or-
ganized and its members are now known as the juniors. Curtis Petersohn was chosen
as president of the Junior Class and he was assisted by Charles Culver and Anna
VVeisman who were vice president and secretary-treasurer, respectively.
The class of '32 is becoming very active in school affairs. Most of the organi-
zations during the school year had juniors in their membership, and some clubs had
juniors as their officers. This year the Girls' Club was entirely under the leadership
of juniors. Catherine Burkel was elected president of this organization and Grace
Erickson and lwary Alice' Crane were her assistants. The Junior Class was also well
represented in Delphi as Harold Schoeberlein, a junior, was president. The French
Club had Mary Alice Crane and Erma Swanee as their secretary and treasurer.
Elmer Eckert, also a junior, is vice-president of the Spanish Club. Mary Alice Crane
represented the class as vice-president of Student Council during the second semester,
while another junior, Charles Culver, was secretary of this organization. The
Auroran Press Club Staff, recently organized, was completely under the leadership
of juniors. Anna Weisman was president, Katharine Hassett, vice-president, and
Edith Perrin was secretary. Dorothy Chisman was the secretary-treasurer of the
Library Round Table. The Girls' Commercial Club was also in charge of 'mem-
bers of the class of '32. The officers were Anna VVeisman, VVinifred Brengle, and
Alma Wehrs. Many juniors were very active in debate. Anna Weismzln, Zalmon
Goldsmith, and Connie Chioles were on the first team.
Members of the class of ,32 have been very prominent in athletics. LeRoy
Sebastian and John Schindelbeck will be co-captains of next yearls heavyweight foot-
ball team while Carl Walters will lead the lightweight team. Jack Kobelenz was
this year's lightweight basketball captain, while Harvey Geist led the tennis team.
When Lester McGinn, our beloved classmate, was suddenly taken from us. the
whole Junior Class mourned over the great loss. "Les,' was an active member of
the class of '32. Besides having been a regular on the lightweight basketball team,
he played in the band and on the football team.
The class play, "The Perfect Alibi." was very successfully given and the profits
received from it greatly increased the treasury of the class.
Although demon K'Poor Noticel' had much more business than his enemy "Su-
perior Notice," many juniors received very creditable grades. Several placed them-
selves on the honor roll while lkiargaret Curry, Erma Swanee. Dorothy Langhammer,
Frances Eichelberger, Alleen Rediske, lklarian Eisenhuth, Connie Chioles, Zalmon
Goldsmith, and Harvey Geist were fortunate enough to make the high honor roll.
The shield given to the section making the greatest improvement in scholarship
was presented to Miss Gleason's section.
The selecting of the class ring, motto and colors was in charge of Curtis Peter-
sohn, Anna Weisman, Harold Schoeberlein, Paul Staib, Keig Garvin, Frances Rite-
nour, Elmer Etzkorn, Erma Swanee, Katharine Hassett, Mary Alice Crane, and
The Class of '32 has made a great deal of progress this year but they look for-
ward to many greater achievements in the coming year which will be their last.

The Sophomore Class History
NTIL this year the class of 1933, except for perhaps a few unusual people,
has been rather obscure. Now it would seem to be blossoming outl Who
knows to what great heights it may soar by 1933.
Nlembers of this group are taking part in almost every extra-curricular activity.
Orise Hill and Dorothy Galbraith represent the class on the debate team. Although
most club oflices are held by juniors and seniors, the people of 133 are active in the
work of the different organizations. Dorothy Galbraith was president of the Library
Round Table for the past semester.
In this group of sophomores many show athletic ability. The football players
were VValter Krueger, Bill Kelley, Bob Hofliman, Jimmie Rottsolk, Harland ble-
Curdy, Jimmie McGlaughlin, Melvin Brugger, Harold Smith, Chuck Nadelhotfer.
Jack Bjorseth, Bill Fowler, Carl Haring and Lavell Patterson. ln basketball, the
"s0phs" at work were Bob Hoffman, Lawrence Gabor, Carl Numerick, Chuck Nadel-
hoffer, and Bill Fowler, while Harley Stoner and lfldred Frick were out for freshman
basketball. 1'Pickles" Miller made a remarkable record for the class in tennis, and
Dale Green, Hank Olinger, Carl Haring, Bill Kelley, Bob Hoffman, and Eugene Lyke
proved their worth in track work.
Among the music 'fvirtuososw are Jimmie lXfIcGlaughlin with his violin, Orise
Hill at the piano, John Simpson with his cello and Bob Teichman with his flute and
As far as scholastic standing is concerned, there were numerous "33er'sH who
made the High Honor Roll and the Honor Roll. Moreover Miss 0'Neil's section
of sophomores won the underclass scholastic shield when they were first-half freshmen.
Perhaps when the sophomores have reached the great esteem of seniorhood they
will have proved their worth in this world. Thus, with great expectations, ends the
chronicle of the class of 1933.
-MARGARET Nix, '33,
The Freshman Class 1-listory
PPROXHVIATELY three hundred and fifty Hfreshiesll were enrolled and
admitted to the renowned school for the promotion of education, in the month
of September. This group was unusually large, and the pupils who comprised
the beginning class were either to be an aid or a detriment to the school, or both.
There were Girls! Club parties in the month of September and at the beginning
of the second semester for the benefit of the girls who had just entered East? High.
Then, of course, there were several other parties given by this club and other
organizations throughout the school.
At the end of the first semester, lhliss Thomas' section received the Junior Schol-
arship Shield for having the highest average of any freshman or sophomore section.
Several freshmen boys earned numerals but only one received a letter. The lone
letter was earned by Anthony Teuerle, while Howard Fauth, Adolph Schindel, VVil-
liam James, Nelson Nieman, Walter Johnson, Wilf1'ed Hawking, and -Tack Connors
were given numerals.
Despite several poor notices as well as laziness on the part of isome pupils, the
freshman class, as a whole, did very well. Most of the first year people are of a likable
sort, and as the freshmen advance, no doubt they will uphold the honor of the school.
--BETTY TRIMBLE, '3-1-.
HERE are clubs in Germany Whose spry young
members see their country bicycling through it.
And what good times they do have, peddling
slowly through the country, and at last, tired and weary,
visiting for a night's rest old castles of an era long
since lost. Here the smiling caretaker makes them com-
fortable in the huge place and after the evening repast,
tells weird stories before the fire place, While some lis-
ten animatedly and others nod cheerfully and uncon-
cernedly in deep chairs nearest the fire.
Our clubs are Hlled ,With spry young members who
laugh and play anditalk just as hard and earnestly as
the German boys and girls. And the good times that
our boys and girls haveat parties, dancing, and eat-
ing repasts of cakes and ice creams, while funny
speeches are made. Some listen animatedly, and others
cheerfully and unconcernedly nibble at their cake.

-l-he Faculty Forum
HIC Faculty Forum is an organization composed of all men teachers of lfast
High School. It was organized in September. 1923. for the purpose of creating
good fellowship among the men teachers of lfast High. The meetings are held
once a month at the home of some member to enjoy an evening of cards.
This organization, which is eight years old. has twenty-four members. The new
members admitted to the club during the past year were llielyin Attig, teacher of
mathematics and public speaking: Lloyd H. fieil, teacher of lfnglish and journalism:
Coleman G. Gunderson, teacher of science and mathematics.
The meetings are held on a lllonday evening of each month. Usually two mem-
bers act as hosts. The business meetings are followed by bridge. after which refresh-
ments are served. In proceeding with the business meetings, strict parliamentary prob
cedure is followed.
Although the club is purely for social purposes. it has done a great deal towards
supporting all athletic, scholastic, and social activities of lfast High. '
As an annual eyent the Forum plays a baseball game with the senior team. The
proceeds of the game go tc: the Auroran, the weekly school paper. The basketball
game. that used to be played annually between members of the faculty. has been dis-
pensed with, as this sport called for too much exertion. especially on the part of those
members who are "over-weight" and "out of training."
The officers for the year were:

The Student Council
HE Student Council is the governing body of students, which co-operates with
the faculty in carrying out all of the general student activities. This body in-
cludes a member elected from each section, the president of the Athletic Associa-
tion, the editor and manager of the Speculum, the editor of the Auroran, the captain
of each athletic team, the presidents of the junior and senior classes, and presidents of
all recognized student clubs.
This last year the Student Council devised a plan to relieve congestion in the
halls, because with the increase of students the stairs and halls became very crowded.
Almost everyone co-operated with the Student Council in carrying out this traflic
plan, and it really proved very helpful.
One of the social functions undertaken by the Student Council was that of spon-
soring the Christmas open house. The boys of the school worked with the Student
Council, and these two bodies together helped to make the party a great success.
One of the biggest projects undertaken by the Student Council was that of mak-
ing it possible for our school to observe National Book Week. Miss Allen, the librar-
ian, also co-operated in this project which proved to be a real success, as students be-
came acquainted with the better books.
As in previous years the Student Council has been very fortunate in having the
dean of girls, lVliss O'Neil, as its faculty adviser.
The officers of the Student Council for the year were:

The Girls, Club Cabinet
NOTHIQR eventful year for the Girls' Club has rolled by. Since the organi-
zation is so large, a girl is elected from each section to represent all of the girls
in the section at all cabinet meetings. The cabinet worked with the officers and
lkliss O'Neil in trying to make the club abide by its motto, "Give the girls so much
to do in worthwhile endeavors that they will have no time for worthless onesf'
There was a party in September and one in February for the purpose of welcom-
ing the new freshmen.
The day before Christmas was the grand day for the Girls' Club, for that was
the day that the Christmas party was given for the poor children of the city. The
Beacon-News kindly obtained money for this enterprise through the Empty Stocking
Fund and the club had the pleasure of spending the money. This year nearly two
hundred children, an increase of one hundred per cent, were made happy by it.
ln the spring the club had its annual Clean-Cp campaign, attempting to improve
the appearance of the school by cleaning up the lockers.
The last event in the Girls, Club year was, as usual, lvy Day when an ivy plant
is planted near the school.
Financial means were obtained in four ways during the year, by the noon-time
concession, the football concession, the club dues, and a benefit dance, all of which

given by lkflr. Reber, a well known lecturer of VVheaton, Illinois.
The club usually enjoys a Christmas party, but last Christmas the money was
spent in purchasing baskets of food for the poor people of Aurora. The annual picnic
was the final function of the year and was held in the late spring.

Le Cerele Francais
IC CERCLIQ FRANCAIS is organized for a twofold purpose: first, to ac-
quaint the members with one another, and second, to promote a higher know-
ledge of France and its customs. The latter is accomplished by means of in-
teresting musical programs, emphasizing French compositions, and also by means of
speeches by people who have visited France.
The annual Armistice Day program was very interesting. Both hir. VValters
and John Trierweiler spoke of experiences in France. hir. Wzilters told of his meet-
ing with the English king. '
A tea-dance featured the Christmas party held December 18 in the music room
and cafeteria. After an excellent program in the music room, the students adjourned
to the cafeteria for refreshments. lVIembers and guests returned to the music room
later for dancing.
Through the co-operation of the students the Christmas basket was a great suc-
cess. It was composed of a Christmas dinner and enough substantial food to last sev-

Der Deutsche Verein
INCIQ September, 192-l, when the German Club was reorganized, it has become
one of East High's most prominent organizations. Under the careful guidance
of lVIiss Garms as adviser of the club, it has had a very successful year.

on Germany by members of the club, and at
musical programs as well. A program com-
mittee, elected at the beginning of the year, is responsible for the programs presented
at all meetings. ln Rlarch, the club was a guest of the Spanish club at an evening
meeting, at which a very interesting lecture was given, with the aid of colored slides.
In addition to the regular meetings social affairs are enjoyed throughout the year.
It has been the custom in former years for the German Club to sponsor a Christmas
party, however, the Christmas party was
sacrificed this year in order that the club
might give baskets to the needy of the city. ln the spring an evening party was held
at the home of Jean Putnam.
An annual picnic was enjoyed by the
members of the club late in the spring of
the year which as usual closed the club year.

The Silver Triangle
HE Silver Triangle, under the able direction of Miss Buckheit, the HY" Girl
Reserve secretary, and lVIiss Twitchell, has completed a most successful year.
The Girl Reserve Club was first organized during the VVorld War. The
high school club, The Silver Triangle, is a senior division of the National Girl Re-
serve organization, and is connected with the Y. W. C. A. The club, an organiza-
tion of high standards, is open to all the girls in high school from twelve to eighteen
years of age, who are willing to uphold the purpose of the Girl Reserve Club. The
purpose of the club is: 'ATO seek together the high places of life where we choose wise-
ly, work willingly, and play squarely, all in a friendship that reaches unto God."
"Swim night," which takes place every Thursday evening, was successfully carried
out. It is a new sport, which was inaugurated by the members of the club.
A number of social events took place throughout the year. A Hallowe'en party
was held in the Y. W. C. A. A Christmas program, a few social gatherings, and the
initiation of new members were enjoyed by the members of the club.
The uniform of the Triangle is a white skirt, white middy, and blue tie.
Rings are awarded each year to the girls who follow the purpose, and are active
members in their club. These rings are silver with a triangle having the blue letters
HG. R." inscribed upon it.

The I-li-V Club
HIS Hi-Y Club brought to a close one of its most successful years with the an-
nual llother and Son banquet held in hlay.
The Hi-Y Club is composed of sophomore, junior and senior boys who have
been picked by the membership committee of the organization and approved by the
advisers as boys who will live up to the Hi-Y purpose. lhfleetings were held every
other lhlonday of each month in one of the class rooms. A supper in the cafeteria was
followed by the meeting.
The purpose of the Hi-Y Club is to create, maintain, and extend throughout the
school and community high standards of Christian character. The purpose of the club
was carried out in the -l-Cys campaign held during a week in lllarch which stressed
clean speech, clean athletics, clean scholarship, and clean living. A talk on each of the
4-C's was given in the East Side grade schools by four Hi-Y boys while H. W. Gib-
son was procured to speak to the high school student body at a convocation.
ln the fall the club was fortunate in being able to act as hosts, along with other
clubs and individuals, to the State Older Boys' Conference. This was a big under-
taking but was successful. Later in the year members of the club were delegates to
the Big Four Older Boys' Conference held at lflgin.

The press Club
HE Press Club of East High was organized in October, 1930. Membership
to this organization is limited to the students of the Auroran staff.
A constitution was drawn up and adopted by the Press Club, in order to estab-
lish the club on a permanent basis. The Press Club meets every other Thursday
during the twenty-minute period in the auditorium.
The organization of the club was undertaken because of its need. It was felt
by both members of the Auroran staff, and critic of the latter, that the try-out tests in
june, given to those who wish to gain positions on the Auroran, were not sufficient in
training and testing the student in his particular choice of newspaper Writing.
Therefore, the purpose of the Press Club is, first, to acquaint members of the
staff with better journalistic methods: of creative writing, and second, to be a more
organized staff. To carry out this purpose, the programs presented at the meetings
are journalistic in nature. A special program committee plans them. They include
discussions of various types of newspaper writing such as the sport story, editorial,
feature, news story, humorous writing, and exchange. Debates form another part of
Despite the fact that the club is just in its beginning its purposes are being look-
ed up to and carried out by the students, and it is growing stronger. Mr. Geil, the
adviser of the Auroran, is also the critic for this society.

l-be Library Round -lable
HIC Library Round Table was organized in 1930 as a club especially devoted to
library interests, and with Bliss Allen, the librarian, as adviser, it has proved
Those eligible for membership are students who have taken or are taking the
library course. The club is closely connected with the library class, which was or-
ganized by Miss Allen in 1929, for the aims of both are practically the same. The
aims of the Library Round Table are to increase interest in the library throughout
the school and to disseminate knowledge concerning the library so that members of
the student body may better learn the details of the library from the viewpoint of the
librarian as well as from the standpoint of the user. Each member of the club also
strives to become? acquainted with the contents of as many books as possible and to
further his knowledge concerning popular authors.
Students belonging to the class have the opportunity to assist lwiss Allen in carry-
ing out the duties of the library, by acting as assistant librarians. This practical ex-
perience is certainly helpful.
The activities of the club have been limited to its meetings occurring twice a
month during the twenty-minute period in which matters of the organization are dis-
cussed and talks are given on books and authors of interest. However, the possibilities
of such a club are great and the members hope for future progress in fulfilling its aims.
The officers for the year were as follows:

ELPHI, the only club of its lcind in East High, and the oldest school organi-
zation, has added another page to its history by its years activities. Organ-
ized for the purpose of putting the students in possession of a better under-
standing in parliamentary law, Delphi has been faithful to its purpose.
Guided by Robert's Rules of Order and the text book, UCome to Order," the
programs are presented before the society and consist of such things as parliamentary
drill, debates, current topics, and extemporaneous speeches. The meetings are held
every Friday, the first period in the afternoon.
This year, the constitution of Delphi was revised and all unsatisfactory wording,
omitted points, and unnecessary phrases were corrected so that the society might have
a compact and attractive constitution that represented Delphi.
The annual event of the year, the Delphian banquet, closed another successful
year. In 1930, Delphi undertook a new proposition and sponsored, along with the
banquet, an alumni dance to which the graduating class was invited. By having the
gymnasium attractively decorated with flowers, palms, wicker furniture and streamers,
the dance was a success and won Mr. Walters, favor. Acting upon his suggestion
that it be made an annual affair, Delphi again sponsored an alumni dance this year.
Mr. Jay L. Hunter, the critic and adviser, deserves much credit for Delphi's
program, for it is through him that the members receive aid and co-operation.

The Flying Squadron
HE Flying Squadron, a club ,composed of air-minded juniors and seniors, under
the supervision of hir. Carlson and hir. Rosenbarger, has closed its second
successful year as an lfast High organization.
Because of the ever growing enthusiasm and demand for an aviation club, the
Flying Squadron was organized in the fall of lQ29. During the first year, speeches
on aviation were given by men well schooled in the art of aviation, and flying. liiany
model airplanes were built during the year from materials purchased through the ta-
cilities of the club. Some valuable material was brought back by hir. Carlson and
one of the boys of the mechanical drawing department after they had visited the
Great Lakes 'liraining Station.
in the past year, a set of books on aviation was given to the club by hir. VValters,
and a system was devised whereby a test was given on each book. After a club mem-
ber had passed tests on certain designated books he was given a rank by which he could
be distinguished in the club.
Last fall part of a condemned government plane was obtained, and by an analysis
of this, the club members learned how the plane was constructed. The parts of the
plane were disscmbled in the attic of lfast High during school time by members who
had free periods. There is a possibility that a glider may be built in the future by
the club members.

The Girls, Commercial Club
INCE 1918 the Girls' Commercial Club has steadily increased its membership.
A This year the club was comprised of eighty members. Any girl who has, or is,
taking a commercial subject is eligible to become a member of the organization.
A meeting is held the first and third Friday of every month, and members not miss-
ing one meeting the entire year receive one-tenth of a credit.
A standing program committee, consisting of Helen Travis, Beverly Hamilton,
and Maxine Arndt, has presented both interesting and educational programs before
the club throughout the year, and they deserve credit for their efforts.
The club assumes the responsibility of financing the shorthand and typing con-
tests held each year. Funds for this are obtained through dues and through profit
cleared by selling candy to the students during the noon hour.
A Valentine party and a picnic in the spring made up the social activities for the
club during the year.

leadership of lwiss Comiskey, who has -so ably led the organization through a very

and good vodka! Thumping, haunting music
with a strain of the melancholy in it! A Rus-
sian girl, gay in her bright dress trimmed with fur,
her wistful face crowned by smooth black hair, begins
to dance. How she dances! How her tiny booted feet
tap. Wilder and Wilder grows the music as she whirls
and stamps and cracks her whip!
She is the spirit of the dance, the spirit of indomitable
Russia, the spirit of girlhood, that dances among our

Girls' Athletic Association
ACH year more and more interest is displayed in girls' athletics and the girls
of East High respond by improving themselves in various sports. The main
aim of the club is to promote and stimulate a desire for cleaner sportsi among
the girls. Through the establishment and work of the Girls' Athletic Association
the proposed aim of the club has partially become a reality.
On October 10, 1930, the G. A. A. of East High had the pleasure of being
hostess to four schools at the Annual Play Day held at Phillips Park. The visiting
schools were West Aurora, Naperville, Sandwich, and Yorkville. The activities
participated in were baseball, tennis, volleyball, horse-shoe pitching, and relays.
Twenty-seven of these Play Days consisting of one hundred and eighty-one schools
and including two thousand and ninety-nine girls were held throughout the state
during the fall.
The annual telegraphic G. A. A. basketball shooting tournament took place
February 27, 1931. East High was able to have a team of thirty-five girls entered.
Practice was carried on in the gym classes giving the girls a chance to improve
Last year the local girls were able to obtain the new State League membership
pins. These pins are symbols acknowledging the wearers as members of the Illinois
State League of Girls, Athletic Associations. They are very attractive and of unique
idesigng they, are the form of the outline of Illinois worked out in blue and white,
the State League colors, with the letters G. A. A. running diagonally across the pin.

G. A. A. Executive Committee
HE G. A. A. Executive Committee is the board of control for the club con-
sisting of the officers and adviser of the Girls' Athletic Association. It is
the duty of this group to have a general oversight of the business of the associa-
tion, to exercise legislative powers over the sports and to act on all matters pertaining
to the association not otherwise provided for.
The officers of the Athletic Association are President, .lean Putnamg Vice-
President, Esther Feyg Secretary, llflarv Alice Craneg Treasurer, Doris Swinehamerg
Point-Secretary, Frances blillerg and Faculty Adviser, bliss lloris Kathary.
This year the members of the East High G. A. A. Executive Committee had
quite a treat as they were guests at a banquet given by the Naperville Ci. A. A. on
january 12, 1931. The object of this banquet was to bring about a closer relationship
between the two clubs. The Naperville Ci. A. A. was not then a recognized member
of the illinois State League' and they were interested in obtaining the ,points about
the operation of a club under the State League Constitution and in gaining informa-
tion regarding the various activities carried on under such. The method used in
presenting this material was through talks given by the olhcers of the East High Girls'
Athletic Association. The banquet was thoroughly enjoyed and its purpose fully
Esther Fey was the representative of the East lligh G. A. A. Executive Com-
mittee at the fi. A. A. Camp. She attended classes in executive leadership and
proved to he an outstanding athlete. The information in the transacting of busi-
ness and points regarding leadership were a great help when presented back to the
other officers of the club.

G. A. A. Camp
V HIS year the G. A. A. of East High sent five girls, vlisther Fey, Vice-President
of the club, Doris Swinehamer, Secretary, Helen Beitel, Wixiifred King, and
Dorothy Tibbetts, to the Northern Camp of the State League, located at the
Bowen Country Club near Waukegziii, Illinois. Because camp started on June 15
and lasted until June 22, these girls were excused from classes the last week of school.
bliss Wildzi Logan of Elgin High School was the director of the camp, and the
staff of instructors included bliss lillen hiosbek, llflanager of the State League,
Chicago, Miss lfmma Lou VVilder of the LaCrosse Normal School, lWrs. Helen
Shutt of Barrington High Schoolg Miss J. Ann Brown, and Mrs. Miller of Chicago
who served as nurse.
The girls were divided into two groups, the lmps and the Peps, and these
groups competed in tournaments, games. and inspections until the end of the week
when the Imps won by one point.
Regular classes in baseball, basketball, volleyball, tennis, and soccer were offered,
of which each girl chose four. Swimming, Point System, and Parliamentary Pra-
tice were also offered and a half hour just after dinner was devoted to games.
When the rising bell rang everyone took either a dip or set-ups for nve minutes.
After this, bed-making and the cleaning of dormitories took up the time before
breakfast. Classes began at nine olclock and lasted until dinner time. Point
System followed dinner and then came games, more classes, and Parliamentary
Practice. After supper tournaments were played off until dark and then parties
or entertainments were enjoyed.
There were approximately ninety girls and teachers at camp and a 'nicer group
would be very hard to vfind. Those girls who attended will always remember this as
one of the high spots of their lives.

EXT to basketball, volleyball ranks a close second in being the favorite sport
with the girls of lfast High. Altho volleyball is not so complicated and
difficult to play as basketball, it proved to be nearly as interesting. Volley-
ball is a game in which every player on the team has an equal responsibility and chance
to make a score.
The volleyball season opened lllarch lil, l93l. The number of girls who came
out for volleyball after school proved their interest in this sport. The one hundred
and one girls represented the classes as follows: Freshmen, 32, Sophomores, 435
Juniors, 175 and Seniors, 9.
The personnel of the teams was: Seniors: Bernice Guth, Dorothy Goerner,
lirma Swanee, glean Putnam, Ruby lVooldridge. Lucile Green, Dorothy Tibbetts, and
Esther Fey, captain. Juniors: Ann Cline, lllildred lllyers, Isabel Henry, lvinifred
Brengle, Geraldine Gage, Frances Haslem, lfllnorr Fick, Cecelia Sauer, Rosine
Hilger, Alleene Rediske and Ruth Brugger, captain. Sophomores: lVIarie Wulf,
Vivian Kopp, Shirley lllyers, Eva Logue, Ruth Coward, Bonnie Talley, Emily
Dick, lllargaret Bourelle, Rlarion Bauman, lklarie Goblet and Ruth illaley, captain.
Freshmen: LaVonne Dunning, Cyrilla Seifen, Ursula Spang, Julia Gabos, Kathryn
Govai, Dorothy Weisgerber, Sophia Pietkiewicz, Anna Andreason, Shirlye Frank,
and Ivah Sauer, captain.
The first game of the tournament was played between the freshmen and juniors,
the juniors being the winners by a score of 45-28.
The second game Was a closely contested one between the sophomores and the
seniors. The teams were nearly equal in strength as shown by the 35-31 score,
which was in favor of the seniors.
The linal game between the juniors and the seniors was played April 9, 1931.
This game closed the volleyball season besides closing the tournament. Here the
juniors triumphed through a well played game by a score of 62-44 over their rivals.

ASKETBALL is the outstanding major sport among the girls of ,East High.
Therefore when the basketball season opened, it was greeted with much pep
and enthusiasm. Basketball was played in the gym classes over an eight-week
period, and at the end of this time the girls were in fairly good form to play in the
tournament, which always creates a great deal of interest. The efforts shown by the
girls who came out for Inter-Class Basketball proved that basketball was a favorite
with them. Miss Kathary, the girls' athletic director, worked with small groups of
the girls, instructing them in technical points of the game and aiding them ini im-
proving individual play.
Teams were organized among the freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior girls.
The basketball tournament opened with the first game played between the fresh-
man team captained by Marion Bauman and the senior team captained by Dorothy
Tibbetts. This game resulted in a 27-7 victory for the seniors. The second game
was played between the sophomores and the juniors. Here the sophomores triumphed
with a score of 30-17. This left the seniors and sophomores to play the final game in
the tournament. This game was a hard fought game in which the sophomores won
over the seniors by a 33-12 count.
The sophomore team, the '31 Basketball Champions, was given a banquet by the
Girlsl Athletic Association, March 20, 1931.The members of the team were presented
with miniature silver basketballs in recognition of their playing and of their winning

HIS year the schedule in the unorganized activities was changed somewhat
with tennis being played during the fall term. This season proved to be quite
a successg many girls came out for the tournamentg and the results showed that
these girls had kept "in trim" by playing during the summer vacation. The number
of girls who entered the tournament exceeded that of previous years. Probably this
was due to the schedule's being more suitable for the girls or to the fact' that more
girls are becoming interested in tennis as a sport and recreation.
The Tennis Tournament opened September 2-l, 1930, with sixteen girls partici-
pating in the singles. The outstanding game played was between Ruth Maley
and Mildred Myers with the score of 7-6 in favor of the former.
The final game of the ,singles was played October 4, 1930, between Alleene
Rediske and Ruth 1VIaley which resulted in victory for Alleene with a count of 6-1.
The doubles tournament was run off October 1, 1930. The final game proved
to be the most interesting. lt was played between Dorothy Tibbetts and Alleene
Rediske and llflarion Bauman and llflildred lylyers. The winners were lwarion and
Mildred by a 7-5 count.
East High was very fortunate in having been represented by Dorothy Tibbetts
in the Tennis Tournament at the G. A. A. Camp at the Bowen Country Club in
Waukegan. Dorothy certainly showed skill and tact in triumphing as the 1930
Tennis Champion of the G. A. A. Camp.

INCE Coach Thompson has come to East High, the football teams have become
the most feared in the conference. He is recognized as one of the finest coaches
in this part of the country, and his teams prove that he merits the title. Other
coaches have turned out successful teams at East High, but no one has done so as
consistently as he. Besides his coaching ability 'fTommy" is a bosom friend to
all athletes and to the entire student body.
Coach McAfoos has been with East Aurora three years in charge of lightweight
football. Two of these three years his squads have placed second in the conference.
Any coach who 'can boast of such a record is one to be proud of and we are certainly
proud of f'lVIac.,' His teams are characterized by fight, and fighting teams are
those which we all appreciate. We wish to thank the man who has inspired them
and know that as long as HlVIac'l is in East High we will have teams of which we
COACH GUNDERSON g
Mr. Gunderson came to East Aurora this year. He assisted Mr. lVlcAfoos
in coaching lightweight football and also took charge of the intramural competition.
This activity has certainly proved popular as more people took part in intramural
basketball, horseshoes, and baseball than ever before. Surely anyone who can keep
the student body interested in sports is a welcome addition to the school.
Besides the lightweight and heavyweight football and basketball squads there is
the freshman squad. Coach Stutz teaches the "freshies" the finer points of football
so that they may become- Hregularsl' in following years. His teams have been very
successful, and members of his last year's squad have proved their worth this year.
That must prove his worth.
Mr. Albright Howard Ream Mr. Rosenbarger Mr. Davis
MR. Rov E. navis
R. ROY lf. DAVIS, director of athletics, is the main stay of East Aurora's
athletic department. Year after year he has made it possible for teams to
have the most modern equipment. ln addition to the management of the
team he gives a great deal of his attention to the athletic field and keeps it an un-
usually good condition at all times. hir. Davis began his career at East Aurora as a
coach. After a time he resigned this role for that of athletic director in which capacity
he carries the financial burden of the department. Altho lvlr. Davis does not actually
coach the teams, he undoubtedly plays a leading part in every team's success.
Three years ago Aaron Albright came to Aurora. During his first year the
basketball squad which he coached captured the Big Six conference title. This year the
squad, altho fighting hard, was rather unsuccessful, taking last place in the conference.
This, however, did not make the boys downhearted and under lvlr. Albrightls tutor-
ship they came back to win the district title and to take second in the sectional meet of
the state. Mr. Albright deserves our admiration for the wonderful way in which he
handled the basketball squad.
Before the finishing touches can be put on a team, it must learn the fundamentals.
The coaches breathe a sigh of relief' when a group of boys well tutored in the
fundamentals turns out. lwr. Rosenbarger handles with great efficiency the task
of coaching the grade school athletes.
Howard Ream, captain and all conference guard of' the 1929 squad, this year
assisted Coach Thompson in football. He was a valuable aid in teaching the funda-
mentals to the novices and we are certainly indebted to him for his help.

FAN D I NG
NDER the guidance of Coach Thompson and his able assistants the heavy-
weight football team representing the East High School of Aurora nnished
one of the most successful seasons ever to be played by a Red and Black grid
squad. It glories in having six men placed upon the All-Conference team, picked of Big
Six stars, and in having a few receive honorable mention. Dittman, Pyle, Foster,
and Schindelbeck placed in the backfield while Steinke and Sebastian were chosen
in the line. Foster and Schindelbeck also were chosen on the All-State mythical eleven.
The squad, playing nine games, five conference and four non-conference, had 'a
brilliant season, the only mar being the one defeat of the season that was administered
by Rockford. This game gave the latter first place in the Big Six, and East High
finished second. The team of 1930 was the greatest scoring machine ever to be
put out by East High. In the nine games played it scored 304 points, averaging 34
points to a game even though they were held scoreless in the one loss of the season.
With its victory over West Aurora of 13 to 0, it increased its lead over its famous
rival to four games now, having won seventeen games to West's thirteen. The points
scored gave East High 86 points to West's 12 in the six years of Coach Thompsons
HYDE PARK GAME
Playing the initial game of the 1930 season, East High's gridders waged a
battle royal against their opponents, Hyde Park of Chicago, and the final count
was 26 to 6 in favor of the Easterners. The Red and Black "shock troopsn or
second string men, played a major part of the game, their offensive and de-
fensive work cutting up the Hyde Park squad. '
Scoring eight touchdowns, one touchback, and twenty-two first downs. the Red
and Black eleven downed an inferior Wheaton squad, punished to the tune to 53 to 0.
Wheaton had been hailed as one of the strongest teams in Northern Illinoisg
yet it had to buck up against a much superior squad that was later in the season to
be called a team of repute. A crowd of 3,500 saw a pre-heralded battle turn into
As in the premier game of the season the "shock troops" again started and showed
their worth. Pyle, Foster, and Schindelbeck starred for the regulars and added their
With the line working in perfect unison, East High's grid team took a smash-
ing victory from Freeport in the first conference tussle of the season by ,a score of
47 to 7. The Thompson men started scoring early as the regulars started the game
for the first time in the season. This was due to the weather.
East High's line starred considerably in this game, continually breaking through
Freeport's line and tossing their backfield for great losses. The wing men, Steinke
and Reichenbacher, were able to stop Freeportis dash man, Schmelzle, from making
Piling up their largest score of the season in a game, the Red and Black warriors
severely trounced Belvidere 63 to 7 in another night game on the home grounds.
Foster starred, making four touchdowns, one of the things he did during the season
to make him All-Conference. Pyle was next with two touchdowns, while Schindel-
beck, Runberg and Dittman also scored a touchdown apiece.

Playing before a chilly 5,000 crowd, East High added another link to their
victory chain and won a closely contested game by the score of 1-l- to 7 over Elgin.
The extreme coldness of the night handicapped both teams considerably, and much
fumbling was the result.
The nrst quarter saw no scoring but the Red and Black got off to a flying start
in the second stanza. Off tackle slices and end runs netted much gain, and then on
the last lap Schindelbeck plowed through ten yards for a touchdown. Pyle also
scored in this quarter, ending East's tallies.
Seven thousand fans, the record crowd of the season, witnessed a decisive hattle
that told the tale of a winning and losing of the Big Six conference championship.
Fighting till the last, East Highls heavyweight gridiron team took their first and only
defeat of the season at the hands of an opposing Rockford eleven, the score being
21 to 0.
Rockfordls line plunges proved unsuccessful, as did :their other ground work.
But their opening up of aerial work spelled defeat for the Easterners as their passes
paved the way for their touchdowns.
Serious with the sting of their Rockford defeat, the Easterners ran am.uck over
Bowen High, conquering by a score of 50 to 0 in a much heralded charity game.
Both second and third string players saw action in this game.
A varied attack of runs and passes kept the Bowen eleven stunned throughout
the fracas, only once East High's goal being in danger. This was during the final
minute of the game when Bowen reached the five yard stripe only to be held. hy a
strong Red and Black line.
Playing the first daylight game of the current season on a slippery, water-soaked
Joliet field, the East High eleven easily defeated an inferior prison city squad by the
score of -11 to 2. A drizzly atmosphere was present, and the figures on the field
were undistinguishable in the haze.
The East High squad closed a successful season with even more success and
'lefeated their old rivals, West High, 13 to 0 in the annual turkey day classic.
Overcoming the Red and Blue on their own gridiron made the fourth victory in a
row for Coach Thompson's football teams.
The day was the coldest of the playing season and greatly hampered the players,
hut the Red and Black line stood firm, greatly outplaying the opposition in all ways.
East gained by the much needed aid of the line 177 yards in runs, and -10 yards by
completed passes, giving 217 yards gained by the Red and Black. West High was
repeatedly thrown for losses losing 54 and gaining but 53. Schindelbeck and Reich-
enbacher were the only scorers of the contest. The former along with Banks, East
High half back, injured his shoulder, and both players were forced to retire from
And as the season ended, nine seniors saw their last football battle for East
High. Captain Steinke, Ball, Dittman. Foster, Doane. Miller, VValdo, Banks and
Pyle paid their last tributes to their Alma Mater. However, a large amount of
material is returning and will be available next year, among them. Schindelheck and

HE lightweight football season of 1930 sparkled with success equal to that of
their heavier brethren, and the Red and Black squad under the careful 'and
watchful tutelage of Coach lVIcAfoos ended a successful season undisputed in
second place in the Big Six Conference.
The ponies placed three men on the all-conference team, those being Everett
Enslow, John White and Wilbur Ostberg. There were also a group of men placed
on the second team and several that received honorable mention.
Carl Walters, a fleet back of no little power and experience, was chosen to
pilot the East High aggregation in their 1931 campaign and will make' an enviable
captain in his senior year.
JOLI ET GAME
The East High lightweights, eager for the long awaited first battle of the
season, officially started their 1930 season by traveling over to Joliet to administer a
6 to 0 victory orer the prison city boys in a non-conference night tilt. Patterson, little
giant of the gridiron, was the scorer of the only tally, altho the other backfield men were
aiding constantly by repeated gains. The kick for the goal was good, but Joliet in mak-
ing substitutions had twelve men on the field, voiding the lone marker.
Captain Enslow proved his field leadership, and altho Joliet put up a strong early
season fight, the fracas ended 'with Joliet being spared the pleasure of crossing the
goal line. ln holding -,their opponents scoreless, the Eastmen were predicting their
strength to be shown in the near future.
The East High ponies opened their 1950 home season by a most noteworthy victory
over the neighboring Wheaton eleven by the score of 19 to 0. The Wheaton light-
Weights put up a valiant struggle, but the Red and Black lightweights showed a much
more experienced, machine-like team that worked with precision and showed offensive
and defensive strength.
The first quarter, however, gave the local talent their big score of the curtain-
raiser. After a neatly blocked kick, the Wheaton lads had the East High outfit
backed against their own goal line. By stubborn resistance and the attitude of a
stone wall, East ponies held the Wheatonites to four gainless downs. After this
Wheaton afforded no great amount of trouble, and Patterson and VVhite carried the
Red and Black colors across the goal for East High's tallies.
Scoring the crucial and winning touchdown of the game in the last four minutes
of play, the East High lights proved themselves victorious over a famous Freeport
aggregation by the score of 13 to 7. This tussle was the first conference scrap for the
QMcAfoos pupils and was played on foreign soil.
The final tally for East was made possible as a result of Captain Kreh1's making
his renewed appearance and coming in for a substitution for Freeport in the final
period after having been removed in the third stanza of the struggle. The
officials declared this a violation of rules and the result was that Freeport took a
twenty-five yard penalty, this giving East High the pigskin on the five yard line.
NVith comparative ease, White squirmed over to make the needed tally count.

The East High lightweights added another victory link to their chain and literally
ran over and swamped the Plano heavyweights by the fabulous score of 53 to O. The
local fleet of backs seemed to romp over Plano's goal line at will, and it was with
apparent ease that they scored in every quarter.
The inferior Plano linesmen were unable to hold the onslaught altho they repeat-
edly tried to do so. Patterson, White, and VValters each accounted for two touch-
downs, while Enslow and Fowler added to the day's total by scoring one tally
Traveling up-river on a cold night to Elgin, the Red and Black ponies met
their first and only defeat of the season at the hands of the league-leading Elgin
lightweights by the score of 26. to 13. lt was a nip and tuck battle from start to
finish, and the coldness of the evening spurred the elevens into unforeseen action to
The first part of the contest saw both teams working quickly on offense but not
so on defense, for each side scored two touchdowns with almost immediate frequency,
working the shivering spectators into a frenzied heat. The Elginites, however, scored
too many times in the game of tag, and it spelled the conquering of the Aurora eleven
who could not chalk up any markers after the early game spurt.
The Red and Black ponies took a tighter hold .on second place in the Big Six
Conference, when they took into camp the Rockford eleven and marched over them
to the tune of 20 to O. The local team, playing before the largest crowd of the year,
started seriously from the beginning and scored easily after but three minutes play,
again holding a team scoreless.
The combination of Red and Black ball carriers, by the aid of a superior line,
made thirteen first downs and showed true offensive as well as defensive form.
ln the conference meet with Joliet the final verdict resulted in the same score as
that of the first game and the board again read 6 to 0 in favor of East Aurora.
The field was bereft of any dry .spot and both elevens squirmed in the mud
trying to get the upper hand and administer the Hnal blow. An early touchdown,
however, gained by a neatly completed pass from White to Enslow, was the deciding
factor in the game andl the way to the lone marker of the fracas. This tally was
made with apparent case, yet neither side could score in the remaining part of the
game, because of being hampered by the muddy gridiron.
WEST HIGH GAME
In the final game of the season, in which they were the main attraction, the East
High lightweights closed a successful season by soundly defeating their ancient rivals,
West High, by the score of 19 to 0. This pleasant victory left the pupils of Coach
lVIcAfoos in undisputed possession of second place in the Big Six Conference.
West High was held powerless thruout the tussle and the Red and Black eleven
scored with ease, White galloping 80 yards for one of the tallies he scored. Patterson
was the other goal crosser.

HEN the 1930-31 basketball season opened, Coach Albright found that he
had capable men reporting. Albert Dittman had been elected as captain and
three other lettermen, Pyle, Ball, and Schindelbeck were returning. The
Red and Black started into fine running, and altho the conference standing was not
as high as it has been, the season was a success. Pyle and also Enslow were lost in
February because of the ninth semester ruling, but such men as Qstberg, Doane, and
Runberg proved capable fillers.
Opening the cage season with a victory over Rochelle by a narrow margin
of 12 to 11, the Red and Black five were golf to a fine start. 'Playing on the
Rochelle fioor, the East team showed a fighting team. ,,
East traveled to Elmhurst on the following evening to battle the York quintet,
and the East High heavyweights took their second victory of the season, 22' to 15.
Displaying a good quality of basketball, the Red and Black took an easy victory.
In their first conference game of the season, on the Rockford fioor, the Red
and Black majors were handed a defeat by the Rockford five to the tune of 21 to 16.

Coached by Mr. Albright's brother, the Graysville, Indiana, five journeyed to
East High to win a decision, 27 to 26. The visitors, leading thruout the game, were al-
most overtaken in the last quarter, when Pyle, playing great basketball, scored eleven
Fighting until the finish, the East High heavyweights defeated the Freeport
five in a well-played battle, 20 to 16. Accounting for eight out of eleven free
throws, East played superior basketball.
Traveling to Joliet, East High triumphed over the Prison City fi-ve in one of
the hardest and most thrilling games ever witnessed, by the close count of 14 to 13.
Each team scored five baskets, free throws winning the game.
Elgin, visiting East High, took the match to the tune of 18 to 13. Pyle and
Enslow, ending their athletic careers at the close of this game, displayed fine
basketball and fight that was predominant in all their undertakings.
West High, in taking an early lead on their rivals, East High, found them-
selves on the long end of a 24 to 14 score when the game ended. East had tried
to put a halt to the long shots, but found their efforts to be of no avail. '
Meeting Rockford again, East High was defeated, 21 to 18. Seeking revenge
for their first defeat, the Red and Black gave all the fight they could, The game was
well fought, but East High was nosed out just as the final gun sounded.
Journeying to Freeport, the Red and Black five came out on the short end
of a 17 to 11 score. Both teams were' evenly matched in the first half, and played
a defensive game thruout.
Meeting Joliet for the second time this season, East High defeated the
Prison City boys in a fighting game, 22 to 18. The game was close from the start
to finish, and neither team was sure of the lead until the final whistle blew.
Leading the Big Six race, the Elgin heavyweight team showed no mercy on
the Red and Black boys, handing them a 26 to 19 defeat in fine shape. Fighting its
hardest, East High was unable to overcome the Watch City's lead. '
East High ended its 1931 conference basketball season by losing a 27 to 20
decision to its old rival, West Aurora. Nadelhoffer was high scorer for East, the
Red and Black fighting hard thruout the game.

PENING their cage season at Rochelle on Dec. 12, 1930, the East High
lightweights played smart basketball to take a 13 to 8 decision from the
Rochelle lightweight five. Kobelenz, chosen captain for the season, accounted
for four baskets.
York High of Elmhurst was East Higlfs opponent upon the following evening
and the East ponies annexed their second victory by a score of 14 to 10. Close
guarding and fast passing by the Red and Black gave them the advantage over
the York boys. Kobelenz and Fowler each scored five points.
Traveling to Rockford for their first conference game, the Red and Black ponies
met their first defeat by a 17 to 10 score. As a result of hard and even basketball.
Coach Thompson's boys were able to stay with the Rabs in the first half. Spurting
in the last half, the Rockford five took a well-earned victory.
Playing a practice game with the VVest lights in the curtain-raiser for the
Graysville and East heavyweight game, the Red and Black ponies took an easy
win to the tune of 16 to 4. As the game progressed, both teams displayed a better
quality of basketball.
The visiting Pretzel five defeated the East lights in a battle which ended with
a score of 25 to 12. Playing hard and scrappy basketball, the Red and Black ponies
could not hold the Freeport sharpshooters. The game proved a bit rough, three
Freeport men and one East High man retiring on personals.
YVith a show of fight until the last minute the East High lights met ,a
28 to 19 defeat at the hands of the fast Prison City five. Playing even basketball
throughout the game, the Joliet ponies accounted for fourteen out of eighteen free
throws while the Red and Black made only seven out of their eighteen.
Elgin, leading the lightweight division, defeated the East High ponies in the
curtain-raiser of the heavyweight game by a 22 to 10 score. The Red and Black
light cagers were not able to overcome the Watcli Cityls lead, and were still on the
short end of the score as the game ended.
The East lights traveled to West High only to be set back by a 26 to 16 score.
Playing excellent basketball, with little luck at the wicket, the East lightweigjhts
trailed throughout the game.
After a weekls rest the East High lights played host to the Rockford ponies and
were set back by the score of 25 to 18. Fast and hard passing and dribbling
featured the evenings performance that lacked little in basketball culture.
Still playing that ever fighting kind of basketball, the Red and Black ponies
broke their losing streak and turned back the Freeport lights by a 19 to 18 score.
Roughing up the game a bit, Kobelenz and Fowler were retired on fouls although
accounting for 7 and 2 points respectively.
Being spurred on by their close victory over Freeport, Coach Thompsonis ponies
defeated the invading Joliet ffve by a 16 to 12 count. Dribbling by Kobelenz in the
last few minutes of play gave East High the advantage.
Still leading the conference, the Elgin lights were upset by the East High light-
weights, 28 to 24, in a fast, hard-fought battle. Out after their third victory in
succession, the Red and Black ponies displayed a high quality of basketball and
earned their win over the Watcli City.
Finishing the season with a game over their ancient rivals, VVest High, the
East lights won easily with a score of 24 to 11. Outplaying the West lights at all
times and fighting as hard as ever, the Red and Black five took their fourth victory

HE speedy quintet that represented lhliss Comiskey's section took with apparent
ease the Junior Division Championship in the noon basketball league. lVIiss
Garwood's section finished behind the leaders, although the latter were not
at any time sorely pressed by their closest rivals. llflr. Hunter's section brought
up third place with a squad that fought through the whole league, but met superior
teams that overcame them in four games. ln the Championship game between the
winner of this league, Miss Comiskeyls section, and the winner of the Senior league,
Miss Jenks' quintet, the former were overcome by a rangier tive that held the advan-
tage in age, height, and weight. The smaller boys fought hard, however, but were
at the short end of the final score, 16-S.
At a convocation, both of the winning squads were presented with the emblems
that signify intramural winners, the emblems being medals.

I-IE most successful rejuvenation that any team has gone thru was accomplished
when the East High heavyweights who had been tied for the cellar position in the
Big Six Basketball Conference, came thru and won the district tournament
only to be defeated in the finals of the sectional. Twice, East beat teams that had
previously beaten them two games in the conference season.
That East High was fighting an uphill battle from the start was evident, for
the "dopesters" had given Naperville the edge in the first game. A fighting team
overcame this "crystal gazing," however, and East won by the score of 29 to 21.
In the second round Batavia who had drawn a bye met East but again the Red
and Black conquered, 29 to I9. Big Rock, by beating Plano and Sugar Grove,
earned the right to meet the local boys but they were set back 24 to 18, and East
High had won their way to the finals. West High also came to the finals but East,
now tired of being beaten by the Red and Blue, stepped in and Won 30-I5 in a
decisive game. A
In the sectional at Joliet, East again overcame a team that had previously
beaten them twice and won over Rockford in the last 40 seconds to play, I9 to 18.
On the next night Crane Tech won over Waterman and here again the dopesters
conceded East High a defeat, but the Red and Black displayed a brilliant game and
won 23 to 21 over a much larger team, thus again earning their way to the finals.
The Harrison five of Chicago were the opponents in the next fracas, but a tired
East team, worn down thru hard tournament play, could not pick up enough energy
to fight back hard, and Harrison won 39 to 5.
Two trophies, however, were won by East in the two tournments.

to the tune of 75.8 points to 46.2 points. The first outdoor track meet was
.staged on the York's home field at Elmhurst. East High took nine out of fifteen
Keeping up the old East spirit, that was only defeated once in a dual track

HE above pictured relay team was one of the chief relay teams that ran for
the Red and Black track squad in 1931. This team, consisting of the veterans
Waldo, Culver, Haag, and White, composed East Highls two mile relay team.
Altho it was entered in but one meet this year, it showed well, and placed third in a
highly commendable field at the Ottawa relays on April 25.
The regular half-mile relay team was the one that represented East High in all its
dual and larger matches. Such men as Dittman, Waldo, Culver, Etzkorn, Smith,
White, and Greene all went at different intervals to compose the foursome that
carried the baton over the cinders. The roster of the relay quartet was changed
almost invariably from meet to meet.
Besides the relay standard, other fields were well taken care of. In the 100
yard dash such capable men as White, Smith, and Phillips proved their worth.
In the two-twenty, Phillips, White and Greene ordinarily came thru with points.
VValdo, White, Brugger, and Patterson showed the East High colors in running
In the 880, 'iChuck" Culver broke the county record, as well as placing high
in other meets. Etzkorn was another placer in this event.
Haag, Sperry, and Lyke were the chief bidders for mile run honors.
Another record breaker was seen in Al Dittman, as he and his running mates
sped over the high hurdles.
Dittman also flashed records in the 220 low hurdles, accompanied by Reichen-
bacher and Smith.
Valuable points were also earned by Foster and Hating, pole vault, Alfsen,

The Art Department
HE Art department, under Bliss Shirley, is a vital factor in the success of
many projects in the school, since it is through this channel that the various
events are made attractive from an artistic standpoint.
All the drawings in the Speculum are original compositions made by the
Speculum art staff which includes Jean Putnam, Dexter Stoner, Ruth Long, Georgia
Stahlman, blarian Goddard, and lone Burnham. XVirh the theme of a trip through
Europe it was necessary to make settings for the various stops on the fictitious
journey. Research and drawing talent were necessary for the final productions.
The setting for the Junior Class play, "The Perfect Alihif, was designed and
executed by members of this class. All the paintings, panelling, and construction work
were done by them with the co-operation of the manual training department and the
ln the same way, an exceedingly beautiful yet simple setting was designed
for the Senior play, "The Big Pond." YVith the gray cyclorama as a background,
a large window was constructed in center stage, blue and orchid lights playing
on it from the back. The second act called into play the use of silver window
frames and a lighted fireplace over which hung a large painting. 'lihese settings were
complimented as being two of the most effective yet staged by the art classes.
In addition to various practical applications of the work. much academic work
has been done along the lines of figure work, portrait, landscape, cut paper designs,
Christmas gifts. still life drawings, textile work, block prints, cartooning, and
The Art department has become larger than ever before in its history. It ,seems
that the students are becoming "art conscious," and are taking advantage of tihis
course which offers work in practical application as well as in academic learning.

The Senior Class Play
HE Senior Class play, "The Big Pond," was given in the East High auditorium
on April 17, l93l. The delightful comedy was written by George lkliddleton
and A. E. Thomas, and directed by hfliss Thomas, the dramatic coach, who for
eight years has directed successful class plays at East High.
The action of the play began on one side of the Atlantic and ended on the other.
It concerned a young and impressionable daughter of a big American business man,
who hired a French courier to be the guide of his daughter and wife during their
trip abroad. Barbara Billings, the romantic daughter, fell in
Pierre, who is a young but poor nobleman. When Pierre and
love with the guide,
Barbara were falling
in love, the family became aghast and concocted the plan of returning to America.
taking Pierre along, with the hope that American business life would make the
romance fade, but the play ended with their efforts futile.

The Junior Class Play
TXIOIJIQKN English detective play, "The Perfect Alibi," written by A. A.
hflilne, was presented before a capacity audience, December 12, 1930, by the
Junior Class of liast High, under the direction of Bliss liliza Thomas,
The plot centers about the murder of Arthur Ludgrove on his country estate
while all the week-end guests are at a flower show. The two exceptions are Carter
and Laverick who were idling around the estate but have perfect alibis. The
town constable, P. C. lWallet, and his son from Scotland Yard are summoned and
pronounce a verdict of suicide. Only by the wits of Susan, the ward of the de-
ceased, and of his nephew, Jimmy, is the murderer found.
This type of play was different from that usually presented, but unlike the
average detective story, it had character and depth. As every scene was laid in the
same place, the Art Department worked up a very attractive library with fireplace,
French doors, oak panelling, and comfortable furnishings.

The Boys, Glee Club
HE Boys' Glee Club again ends a very successful year, under the able in-
struction of Miss Pouk. The club's present large enrollment shows the boys,
increasing enthusiasm and interest in music.
In November a portion of the glee club represented East Aurora at Urbana
in the second All State Chorus. The chorus is made up of selected
boys and girls from all the high schools in the state of Illinois. It is organized much
like the National Chorus which met at Detroit this year. The boys who went to
Urbana were Hershel Horton, Lesley Marks, Oman Covert, Foster Lee, Ralph
lVIclVlanus, Claude McInti1'e, Ivan Powers, Ralph McEnroe, and Elmer Seifrid.
A wide variety of music is studied every year and the boys are given the chance
to work on some of the masterpieces, and four-part and one-part selections.
Among the songs studied this year a1'e The Bells of the Sea, Bugler, Stein Song,
Kentucky Babe, Fire Song, and The House by the Side of a Road.
In the spring the fourth annual hlay Festival was held at Dundee. This is
an event which the boys anticipate, for they all seem to enjoy themselves on this
holiday from school.
Besides working up numbers for the All State Chorus and the May Festival the
boys appeared several times in convocation and before the Parent Teacher Club.
The ofHcers for the year were as follows: '

HE Girl's Glee Club was again this year an organized body instead of
being divided into senior and junior divisions as last year. The activities
which were similar to those in former years were carried out successfully, com-
pleting the record of 1930-3l's history of this well established organization.
For the first time since the starting of a lVIay Festival for all the music depart-
ments of the Fox River Valley high schools, the affair was held at Dundee, Illinois.
instead of at St. Charles, on the fifteenth of lhlay. A stage of adequate capacity to
seat the mixed choruses, band representatives, and orchestra members at the same
time was the greatest advantage which made the change to Dundee possible.
On the twenty-first of November the Glee Club sent eighteen representatives
to the State chorus at Champaign, lllinois. East High had the honor of having
llliss Nlargaret Pouk, head of the music department, act as chairman of the music
section at this conference. The conference lasted four days and was crowned by
a glorious football game full of the "good old Illini spirit."
At the bi-weekly meetings of the Glee Club on Monday' and Wednesdayf during
the first semester the girls studied some Shakespearean songs set to music but devoted the
second semester to preparing the festival music. The club elected no ofiicers this
vear. but librarians were appointed to take care of the music folders and their
All-Stdt2 Chorus dV1Cl Grchcstra
AST HIGH was well represented in both the All-State Chorus and the
All-State Orchestra which met at the University of Illinois, in Urbana,
November 19 to 22. About three hundred boys and girls represented the
various high schools of Illinois in the chorus, and one hundred and forty made
up the orchestra. A selected group from the stand point of interpretation was
chosen from each school as only a certain number could be accepted.
Miss Pouk sent fourteen representatives from the glee clubs. They were as
follows: Jean Forkell, Charlotte MacAdam, Louise Patelski, June Muth, Veda
lVIyers, Lesley lVIarks, Claude Mclntire, Ivan Powers, Elmer Seifrid, Foster Lee,
Hershel Horton, Ralph lVIclVIanus, Oman Covert, and Ralph lVIcEnroe. The four
boys who represented the orchestra were these: Thomas Strong fviolal, Cyril
DuSel1 CFrench hornl, Keig Garvin ftrombonej, and LeRoy Schiltz Qclarinetb.
hir. Jacob A. Evanson of Flint, lUichigan, directed the chorus. lllr. Evanson
is nationally known for his art in conducting and has had charge of many large
choruses. The conductor of the orchestra was Raymond E. Dvorak, the instru-
mental director from the University of lllinois. It was a great inspiration to see and
hear such a fine chorus and orchestra, each of whichperformed so well after only a
few ensemble practices.
HE Boys, and Girls' Glee Clubs took part in the fourth annual May Music
Festival which was held at the Dundee high school, May' l5, 1931. Over five
hundred students were entered from the Fox River Valley high schools. The
schools entered were Dundee, Elgin, St. Charles, VVheaton, Plano, Batavia, Geneva,
West High and East High.
Miss Pouk entered twenty-five girls from the Girls' Glee Club and twenty-five
boys from the Boys' Glee Club in the mixed chorus, and a voice group for boys and
a voice group for girls. The girls' voices sang the followingz. UAshes of Rosesu by
Woodman, "Amaryllis" by Parlowg f'Rain,' by Curran. The mixed chorus sang
"Swansea Town" by Holst, NGO Not Far from Me, O Godu by Zingarellig 'flVIexican
Serenaden by Chadwick. The boys, chorus sang "Volga Boatmanh by Holstg "Bells
of the Sean by Solmang "Old Refrainu by Kreisler. The combined orchestra played
the "Andante Cantabilew arranged by Otto Longey from the First Symphony of L.
These combined groups performed in the evening at the Dundee high school
auditorium. They performed before a large audience which was composed largely
of friends and relatives. The afternoon was spent in practicing. Shortly before the
afternoon drew to a close a program was given before all the students who were
entered in the festival. Each high school gave a number. East High's contribution
was a string ensemble composed of the following: Grace Erickson, lst violing
Thomas Strong, viola, John Simpson, cello: James McGlaughlin, 2nd violin. They
played "Andante Cantabilel' and "The Rider's Quartet."
Elizabeth Robinson directed the combined girls, voices and R. Yingling led the
boys' combined voices. Miss Pouk of Aurora led the mixed chorus. The assembled
orchestra was directed by Emma Knudson of Elgin, and the assembled band by W. K.

HE orchestra, a noted musical organization of East High, has rapidly come to
the forefront during the past year. For this year the daily practice was changed
from the noon period to the last period in the morning which indeed ,proved
The orchestra played on numerous occasions during the past year. It played for
a St. Cecilia club program and performed at Mocmselieart for a lwooseheart assembly
program. A concert program was given by the orchestra students the early part of
the second semester. The orchestra played for convocation and both the senior and
junior plays. '
The orchestra mastered many pieces this year which were representative of
foreign composers. One of these, "Waltlier's Prize Song" by Wagner, represents
the German type of music, while "lXIarch of the Uwarfsy' by Grieg is a Scandinavian
number. "ln a Persian lVIarket', by Albert Ketelbey pictures the scene of a Persian
market. A princess appears, and beggars cry for Back Sheesh. HOriental" by Otto
Langley represents the Oriental music played by the orchestra.
One of the modern compositions played is "The Four Way's" suite by Eric
Coates, which exercises syncopations in modern rhythm.
During the year the orchestra co-operated splendidly with lN'Iiss Pouk and by so
doing made it an organization of which the school could feel proud. This organiza-
tion has made much progress in East High due to the able leadership of Bliss Pouk
and the students' love for high-class music.

HIS year the East High band, under the direction of Mr. Rosenbarger and
Mr. FitzGerald, had the most successful year in its history. Its supreme
achievement was the winning of the State Class "A" Band Championship at
llrnana, April 24 and 25. In addition to this Rostelle Reese took the first place in
the cornet solo contest, Keig Garvin a nrst in the trombone, while Harold Brown was
given second place in the bassoon.
Thru virtue of winning the state contest, the East High band entered tlhe
national high school band contest at Tulsa, Oklahoma, on May 21, 22, 23. The
funds for this trip were generously contributed by the student body, faculty, band
boosters, associations of both East and West Side, and business men and concerns of

ES LATINAE, Things of Latin, the official publication of the Athenaeum.
is one of the school publications which is issued periodically. The staff of
the magazine is composed of the Cicero class. The material is chosen from
interesting translations of Cicero's "Orations'l and Virgil's "Aeneid,N and from themes
depicting Roman life, history, and traditions. Because of the great amount and
variety of good articles submitted, only a few of the best can be published. Thus the
pupils are incited to do their very best work as they know that only well-written,
interesting, and uncommon articles will be selected. The publishing of articles
appearing in Latin magazines from other high schools, the joke column, and the
question of the inquiring reporter are also features of the magazine.
It is only through the kindness and co-operation of the Commercial department
and especially of Rose Kobor and lylargaret Saltzman who have faithfully done all
the typing, that Res Latinae can be published.
lwiss Frances Holaday, adviser of Res Latinae, deserves much credit for the
success of this year's magazine because of the keen interest and invaluable assistance
exhibited by her. '
Res Latinae has now been published for four years. Its first editor was
Catherine Grometer who successfully laid the foundations of the magazine. Under
the capable guidance of Sherrill Parsons, the second editor, the magazine grew to be
permanent. Last year's editor, John Willscin, efficiently carried Res Latinae through
another successful year. This year the Latin magazine has been headed by Bess

The Patron Stall of The Speculum
T IS customary to choose the Speculum Staff from the Patron Staff. Thus the
members of the Patron Staff are spurred on both by the desire to help the
class and to make a place on the Speculum Staff.
All seniors were asked to do their bit toward securing money for the book.
Practically the entire class responded because everyone realized that the task, which
was always difficult, would be harder than ever because of the general business de-
pression. The Patron Committee' gave each member ,five 'iprospectsu that had con-
tributed to the fund last year. If one person was turned down the card was held
for a week or two and then it was given to someone else. A large sum was sub-
scribed in this way from cards that had failed to net anything to the first, and even
the second, student who tried. After all of the patrons of the last several years had
been approached, those who had given before this were visited. Some success was met
with in this portion of the subscription campaign.
Those who had served on the Patron Staff were eligible for the Speculum Staff.
After the hnal staff was chosen, this group finished 'up the patron subscription cam-
paign. They visited the shops that had promised to contribute at Christmas time
and at dates later in the year. All of the patron cards that had failed to bring
anything during the first campaign were turned over to this staff. A large sum of
money was secured from this seemingly hopeless source. The merchants all responded
with a helpful spirit to the request of the students for money. These men, despite the
general business depression, helped the seniors to the best of their ability. They
deserve much credit for the success of our book.

The Speculurn Subscription Committee
OlVIE time before the actual staff was picked, the tentative subscription committee
was at work organizing the plans for the coming campaign. lVIr. Carlson.
the business adviser of the Speculum, foresaw the fact that a new method of
subscription would have to be devised in order to secure the usual number of sales.
It was finally decided that the personal solicitation method would be the best to
use. A representative was appointed in each section to take care of the sales. A
member of the section was chosen in preference to a senior because the lower classmen
could be reached more easily by one with whom they were in immediate contact.
This policy was followed in all sections with the exception of the beginning
freshmen. The representative was instructed to talk personally with each individual
member of the group, and, in this way, many more Speculums were sold than could have
been disposed of in any other way. A huge chart was placed in front of the audi-
torium which recorded the number of books sold in each section. As it was brought
up to date before school time each morning, it created a rivalry between sections.
each desiring to have his section to be the first to have one hundred percent.
A book was to have been given free to the representative in each underclass sec-
tion that was 100 percent. All four senior sections were 100 percent, but none of the
lower classmen succeeded in having their section go 100 percent.
The campaign was a success from every point of view. A date was set for
the termination of the campaign, and contrary to the usual practice, no more books
were sold after that day. lklany were disappointed because they could not buy a
Speculum after that date as in other years. They were all turned down because! it
will be easier for classes of years to come to conduct their campaigns on a specific

The Board ol Qontrol
S THIS fiscal school year ends, so ends the long drawn-out duties of the Board
of Control, comprised of student and faculty members. This group is the
standing judicial body governing debate, dramatic, commercial, and athletic
activities throughout all the school year and thus remains intact and active throughout
all the seasons.
Its functions are to award all letters and numerals to the athletes that have
competed for a season and have met all requirements. These boys are recommended
by the respective coaches. Awards are also given to the debaters and the commercial
teams. No student may receive an award without this board's formally acknow-
ledging his right to receive one.
This governing body of students and faculty is made up of athletic, commercial,
dramatic and debating coaches, the captains of all the various teams, the officers of
the athletic association, the athletic director, and the principal of East High.
The meetings of this group are held at the close of every athletic, debating, and
commercial season, when the petition for awards to the various members of the
teams is presented to this board for approval, and then the awards are given at
some later date in convocation.
Although the Board has to sanction the right to receive an award, the passing
of judgement on the recipients has become more or less a formality of this body.
This system, that has been in existence now for five or six years, has worked

HE 1931 debating season was the most successful one East High has had
since the organization of the Big Six Conference. For the first time, East
High placed second in the conference.
The question contended, was, Resolved: That the chain store system is detri-
mental to the best interests of the American people.
On February 5, the negative team defeated J. Sterling 1Vlorton, while the
affirmative lost to that school in the first practice debate of the season. The teams
next took a 6-0 victory from La Grange on February 11, and six days later 1Vlendota
defeated East High's negative, and lost to the affirmative.
The Big Six Conference opened February 19. The result of the first round
was a double victory for East High over F1'eeport, and the survival of Elgin and
VVest High, who had debated Joliet and Rockford, respectively.
The next triangular meet was held Febuary

Anna Weisman, was given first ranking among the eighteen speakers.

Marcli 10. The teams met the first team of Sandwich which last year won the
state debating championship. liast High's affirmative debated at East High in the
afternoon while the negative debated in Sandwich in the evening. Both teams of
lfast High received negative decisions. The judge of both debates was Professor
Oliver of North Central College.
This year a new system was used whereby several open forum or discussion meer-
ings were held. This enabled the debaters to gain experience in refutation, to learn
of new points and arguments, and to develop quick thinking and alertness.
All members of the HH" teams attended the other debates and outlined the
speeches so that they were able to prepare rebuttal points for their own personal

The forensic Contests
H15 National Forensic League State Speech Tournament was held March 13-14
at the C. IW. Bardwell school. This year the divisions included debating,
extemporaneous speaking, the three forms of declamation, humorous, dramatic,
and oratorical, and original oratory.
Anna Weismziri and Nicholas Suta entered the division of oratorical declamation.
This contest was divided into two groups, Anna was placed in one and Nicholas
in the other. Both gained places in the contests which were held Friday evening.
In the contest the next morning, Anna won second place, entitling her to enter the
National contest at Ripon.
Louis Kuhn represented East High in the extemporaneous speaking contest which
was held Friday evening. He spoke on 'fThe Red Cross and the Bread Line."
In the original oratory division, Dorothy Langhammer represented East High.
Her speech was entitled f'America and Her Future."
In the debating contest, East High was represented by Wiiiifred King, captain,
Connie Chioles, and Zalmon Goldsmith, on the affirmative team, Louis Kuhn,
Dexter Stoner, and Anna Weismzin, captain, on the negative team. The question
for debate was, UResoIved: That the chain store system is detrimental to the best
interests of the American peoplef' In the first round of the debate, the East High
affirmative team defeated the Y.IN'I.C.A. Day School, while the negative won from
the Granite City team. In the second round, the East affirmative suffered defeat from
the Sandwich negative team, while the East High negative again triumphed, this
time defeating the Freeport team. In the third round, the East High affirmative team
avenged an early season defeat by winning from Sterling Morton Township
High School, the negative was unsuccessful, and bowed to Sandwich. This left
lwendota as winner, but there was a triple tie for second place. As Sandwich had
an unlimited invitation to the National contest, it dropped out, leaving East High
and J. Sterling Morton. The committee decided to have the East High negative
team debate the J. Sterling Moron affirmative team, the winning school to get second
place. The negative triumphed, and East High won second place in the state contest
of the National Forensic League. This victory entitled East High to enter the
National contest which was held at Ripon, YVisconsin, May 7-9.
At the National Forensic Speech Tournament the East High debate teams sur-
vived the third round. According to a ruling, the debate teams had two members to a
team, instead of the customary three people. The affirmative team was composed
of Zalmon Goldsmith and Winifred King, with Connie Chioles as alternate. Anna
Weisman and Dexter Stoner formed the negative team with Louis Kuhn as alternate.
In the first round, the negative team met and defeated Hepler, Kansas, by a two
to one decision. The affrmative team was defeated by Webster Grove, Missouri,
in the second round by a two to one vote. In the third round, ther negative was de-
feated by Miami, Oklahoma, by a two to one decision. The two defeats caused the
elimination of the two teams.
Anna Weismzln, winner of second place in the district tournament, survived
three rounds of oratorical declamation in the national meet, but was finally eliminated
in the fourth round. Her oration, NAn Ideal Americanf, concerned Theodore
Roosevelt. Anna also won the district contest in the State League at DeKalb,
Illinois. She won fourth place in the finals of the State League which was held
at Normal, Illinois.

The National Forensic League
ETNIBERSHIP to the National Forensic League is honorary. Only students
who have earned a certain number of credit points by taking part in some
recognized form of interscholastic forensic contest are eligible to enter this
Twelve points are given to each member of a winning debate team, six points are
given for a draw. ln an extemporaneous speaking, oratorical, or reading contest
the one winning first place is credited with as many points as there are contestants.
One point is subtracted for each place below first. The captain of a debate team
receives an extra point for each debate.
A candidate must earn ten points to become a member of this league. Awards
for further number of points gained are given in form of degrees. Ten credits gives
the Degree of lVIeritg thirty, the Degree of Honorg sixty, the Degree of Excellenceg
and one hundred points awards the highest possible degree, the Degree of Distinction.
The National Forensic League originated in Ripon, Wisconsin, and was patterned
after Pi Kappa Delta, a college honorary fraternity for college debaters. East High
became a charter member of the league when it was organized in l925.
East High has been active in the National Forensic League work. The state
speech tournament was held at the C. M. Bardwell school this year under the chair-
manship of Mr. Hunter, who is also district chairman of the league.

The Parent-Teacher Association
HIRTY-FOUR years ago on February 17, 1897, the Parent-Teacher Association
was organized in an effort to make the education of boys and girls attending
school a problem of the home as Well as of the school itself. Thru this organi-
zation the parents, particularly the mothers, become acquainted with the teachers
whose duty it to guide the pupils thru a maze of activities, social as well as educa-
tional. The Parent-Teacher Association is growing stronger and larger every year.
Its activities are more numerous because there is a friendly attitude among the mem-
bers which brings about co-operation. The increase in the membership is probably
due to the increased interest of the parents in trying to make themselves acquainted with
the students, life in school.
The desire of the Fast High club this year was to obtain better and more authorita-
tive speakers to talk to the members.
The first meeting of the year was held October 14, in the form of a reception.
After a social hour cards were enjoyed.
Rev. H. E. Rompel of the First Ikiethodist Church of Aurora was the speaker
chosen to talk to the association in November.
On November 26, the Parent-Teacher Association sponsored a dance for the
students, for which Russ Gaede's orchestra furnished the music. Many alumni were
home for Thanksgiving, thus making the affair a sort of reunion. Frappe and wafers
lllrs. W. T. Bruckner, state chairman of the law observance committee of Illinois,
spoke to the members at the December meeting. Her subject was HParent Respon-
The Parent-Teacher Association was entertained at the annual tea given by the
Girls' Club January 1-1. After an address of welcome by the Girls' Club president,
several girls gave short talks on girls' viewpoints. Tea was served.
"Parent Education," a talk given by lVIrs. Frank Detweiler, State President of
the Illinois Congress of Parents and Teachers, was the feature of the February
meeting. "Parents," said lblrs. Detweiler, "should read constantly and educate them-
selves, so that they can impart right ideas of living to their children."
On the evening of lXIarch 20, the Parent-Teacher Association sponsored a card
party. Bridge and 1600" were played in the corridor on the third Hoor. The stu-
dents assisted by selling the tickets. Members of the club helped at the Roughneck
day party held on lVIarch 27.
As a whole, the year has been a very successful one under the very able administra-
tion of its leaders. February 17, so well known as Founder's Day to all the members
of the Parent-Teacher Association, was deserving of its joyous celebration.
The officers for the year were:

The Janitors ancl Cafeteria Directors
AST HIGH school has been very fortunate in many ways. We have a fine
building, a faculty whose merits are without question, and good facilities for
study. However, even all these fine qualities would avail us little if we did not
have the janitors on the job to keep everything in motion so that no time can possibly
The janitors' jobs are numberless. They keep the building warm, ventilated,
and clean, they keep the grounds around the building neat and shovel the Walks in the
winter time. These jobs are only a part of the work to which it is necessary for our
-ianitors to attend. The following janitors are in charge: lvlr. Larson, engineer, Mr.
Kerner, Mr. Snyder, Mrs. Stallman, first floor, lVIr. Abel, second floor, Mr. Hill,
To the students of East High, the Cafeteria is a very vital part of the institution.
The Cafeteria is open from eleven o'clock until four-thirty, in the afternoon. This
gives an opportunity to the students who have a noon-hour class to get their lunches
during the fifth period. A system has been provided by which students desiring to
get something to eat during the seventh period may obtain a pass from the office to
The success of the Cafeteria has depended entirely upon lVIrs. Campbell, the
director, and her assistants. hflrs. Brown has been lblrs. Campbells chief assistant
during the past few years. A number of East High girls have earned their lunches
by helping lVIrs. Campbell serve during the noon-hour. There are about six of these
students who assist. This plan is helpful to the girls as well as Mrs. Campbell be-
cause it enables them to pay for their own iunch.
A great deal of gratitude is extended by all to the ianitors and cafeteria directors
for their co-operation in furthering the best interests of our school.

T THE beginning of this school year a very interesting plan which had, been
adopted the preceding semester was worked out in more detail. This plan
is known as the Cadet System. That is. a number of young men and women
from North Central College at Naperville, Illinois, who plan to become teachers,
are given practical experience in education by assisting teachers in different schools.
The cadets are given no remuneration for their services other than credit at the
college. They have been a great help to the faculty of lfast High. and it can he
safely said that the teachers worked patiently and helpfully with them in order that they
might get the most advantages that this experience has to offer them.
The first semester the experience was still a trifle too new to be worked out
perfectly. However, as the semester drew to a close, the cadets were considered a
part of liast High and the students respected them as well as their regular teachers.
The following teachers had cadet assistants: lVIiss Garwood and lkliss Garms, bliss

The Senior Class prophecy
T EAST HIGH it is customary, each year, for the departing class to write
a prophecy. Thus it was that we two were appointed to fulfill this obligation.
As no one in our class was gifted with the art of reading the future, we were at a
loss to know what to do until we were told to consult the Sphinx.
We began the long and treacherous journey to our objective and finally arrived
in the presence of this great image. The Sphinx had never spoken to anyone but was
known to be able to 'fortell many things. Consequently we were puzzled to know
how to obtain the prophecy of our class from him. YVe were thus kneeling before him
when to our surprise he suddenly spoke, and the future of many students of the class
of "31" was revealed to us.

THC I-IEPO ON HIS
VCLGA BOAT MAN
DEAR MR. WALTERS:
While the Class of '31 is touring thru Europe, l am taking notes as you
suggested to give you an idea as to what we are doing.
JUNE 29-Our train left the Burlington station for Chicago at 9:34 A. M.
Precisely at 9:32 Randall Renz and Everett Enslow arrived out of breath and minus
their baggage. Berton Chase arrived as the train pulled out and was left behind
much to the relief of the entire class. Altho Les Marks tried to use the baggage
rack for an upper berth and Roger Vogtmann narrowly esscaped being put off for
trying to impersonate the conductor, we got to the big city without any serious mis-
hap. The class changed trains at the Union station and continued to New York.
Herb Zilly became lost while counting the stairways in the station and was forced
to charter a plane to catch up with the rest.
JULY 1-We were all excited when we boarded our giant liner bound for
Liverpool altho we attempted to act nonchalant. Frances Miller and Helen Beitel
nearly missed the ship because they were so engrossed in counting stories ,to locate
the tallest buildings. As we steamed past Miss Liberty we knew that even her
bronze heart was affected by the glances from such gallants as Ray Wilmarth, LeRoy
Lipke, and Don Cousland.
JULY 2- Floyd Bieri and Stanley Sheldon were severely reprimanded for
sneaking into parts of the deck sacred only to high officers. If Mr. Carlson had not
intervened so eloquently in their behalf, they might have been placed in irons. Sea-
sickness made its inroads on the rank of the class members today. Many were con-
fined to their staterooms while others rolled miserably in their chairs on the deck.
Clyde Rogers made the rounds with several purloined menu cards to cheer up the
afflicted ones. James Ashbrook became frantic and dropped him overboard for such
a suggestion. Bob Ball proved himself a hero and rescued him. Clyde suffered
no ill effects except that his clothes fitted him more snugly.
JULY 4-A celebration was held with hreworks as spectacular as if we were on
land. A fairly safe and sane holiday was held. Otto Freilinger, John Kackert,
Ed Miller, and Sellers Pyle were cared for by the Emergency First Aid Unit. Most
of the seasick cases were walking about rather wobbly today with great anticipation
for the morrow when we disembark.
JULY 5-lVIany were disappointed because we arrived in port too late at night
to get off today. Several tournaments were staged to pass away the time of our last
day aboard ship. Foster Lee defeated Dexter Stoner in the finals of the chess event.
Howard Metzger defeated Bob Ladd in the Ping-Pong finals to win the championship.
Jimmie McLallen called Mr. Carlson's bluff to win the poker game going on behind
No. 3 life boat. Louis Kuhn obtained an exclusive interview with Jimmie for the
New York Sun, Moon, and Stars.
JULY 7-Miss Jenks is taking us in hand to see that we do not miss any im-
portant stops in England. Stratford-on-Avon is our present destination. This
Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-upon-Tyne habit is so strong that I heard Patty Clare
tell one of the natives that she came from Aurora-on-Fox.
JULY 9-Today we motored over to London-on-Thames to spend the next
few days. Un the way Ellis Doane and Bud Paxton commenced fooling about.
Each dared the other to jump out while the car was moving slowly. As a result they
were left behind and, I guess, they will hike. Helen Couve has the souvenir habit
and is spending all her time locating curio shops. She has retained her business
sense and is getting a special reduction on everything.
JULY ll-Ellis and Bud caught up with us this morning. Rather than Walk
they hitch-hiked and fell in with some people whom they believed to be royalty in-
cognito. They were surprised that no one believed their story. Since we leave for
France tomorrow some of our mermaids are talking of swimming the Channel.
JULY 12-Mr. Davis announced that anyone who wished to swim the Channel
could do so upon signing a writ of release from responsibility of the tour managers.
Helen Shohoney, Louise Patelski, and Frances lyliller promptly prepared themselves
to perform the feat. VVilbur Mortimer planned to do so to cut down expenses but
decided it was too laborious. Helen Couve is getting an excellent grade of axle grease
at a 62 per cent reduction. '
JULY 13-Everyone except the swimmers and John Lumbard, George Steinke,
and Shirley Baker, who are safeguarding the venture, are now at Calais awaiting the
venture. Unfavorable weather conditions are halting the contest.
JULY 14-Helen Shohoney successfully completed the swim! Frances Miller
refused to start because of a rumor of sharks in the water. Louise completed a little
more than eight miles before she was forced out by cramps and cold water. Helen
graciously declined the 317.68 collected by admiring students because she wished to
protect her amateur status.
JULY 18-For the last two days we have been in Paris. Last night several
adventurous spirits attempted to climb the Eiffel tower in the moonlight. Freddie
Foster and Al Dittman were nabbed by the gendarmes but Harry Borngrebe, Randall
Renz, and Everett Enslow ducked out. Al and Freddie were released by intervention
of the American consul who was a close friend of Jay lVIcGraw's Scotch uncle.
JULY 23-Since the revolution is having a lull we have crossed into Spain. This
afternoon we attended a bull fight in the arena. Ray Wilmarth has changed his
ambition from subway guard to bullfighter. They have such bizarre uniforms.
JULY 25- Gibraltar is the scene of our escapades now. Shades of the Katzen-
jammer Kids but what will Vogtmann, Lipke, and that clique do next! While the
group headed by Zilly and Lipke talked to the guard, Roger sneaked inside the fort-
ress and unfastened a private gate. About Hfteen boys found this manner of -enter-
ing and raised havoc with the military routine. Fire alarms and riot calls were the
order of the day. Russell Lindgren wanted to chisel the Prudential Life Insurance
advertisement on the rock to familiarize the rock to American tourists. Orville
Klimpke counselled that they get a commission on the job first. lVIeanwhile the
military garrison was not inactive and soon the guardhouse received a few more
inhabitants. Both Mr. Carlson and Mr. Davis refused to try to help them out of
jail altho Miss Holaday did smuggle a few saw blades to them.
JULY 26-The Jailbird Society, as they termed themselves, were allowed to
leave the guardhouse with but a minor fine. The experience had no effect upon them
and they already have plans made for the new adventure.
AUGUST 2-Italy is our latest stamping ground. We took a boat trip from
Valencia to Sicily and Naples without many on the seasick list. Sunny Naples is a
correct statementg LeRoy Faust declared he could not look a thermometer 'in the
face because he knew it would be lying if it registered a mere ninety-eight or so.
AUGUST 5-We have divided into two groups now. One is planning on moun-
tain climbing and winter sports in Switzerland while the other is dreaming of
Germany and its romantic castles and history. l am with the former group so you
will have to imagine what Steinke and Vogtmann are doing in the Munich beer
AUGUST 8---Mr. Carlson in a careless moment bragged of his skiing ability.
Now we are forcing his bluff to see if he can ski at all. Perhaps he knows quite a
on backward and looked in the guide
bit about the sport but when he put one ski
book to End out how to fasten it, we began to
AUGUST ll-Since the two groups are
13th, we have moved to Strassburg, Germany,
to unite in Brussels, Belgium, on the
for the day.
AUGUST 13-The Germany group was
Mr. Davis was in a rather hysterical condition because of continual vigil and was
seen to laugh for Eve minutes at a time. When hir. Carlson arrived to handle Clyde
Rogers and Roger Vogtmann for a part of the time, Davis once more became normal.
in Brussels waiting when we arriyed.
AUGUST l7-We sailed today from Cvherbourg for New York City. Every-
one admitted that he was quite travel weary and contented to be homeward bound.
AUGUST 20--The return trip is rather quiet in comparison with the rest of the
tour. Perhaps this is because' Shirley Baker, Ray Wilmarth and Randall Renz were
put under close observation after the ship left Europe. We are due to land August
23 and would be pleased, Mr. Walters, to have you at the dock When we come in.
While l would not mention names, l am sure there will be trouble with the customs
officials. You may be needed to bail someone out. '

HE journey ends. The train rum-
bles away in the distance. And so
farewell. Farewell to all old
friends, old places, delightful times. But
not farewell to memories for they may be
revived by the turn of a page.
HE success of the 1931 Speculum has in large
measure been made possible through the excellent
co-operation given the Staff by the Staffoid E
graving Company of Indianapolis, by A A Ost ft
photographer, of Aurora, and by Finch Sz McCullouch
printers, of Aurora. The Staff also Wishes to thank the
