FAC U LTY FAC U LTY 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. fl w f , A Q1 " , .- W i'w.,,.w""""""'f"'-'v-f-. ,XM 4-f-M 5 'X ' ,, W 4 ,P 4,--..,. fm.

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' ' X. - 1 f -1- A " '-'V 1 ' swf' . 1 w- W 1 :-M Q . YF'- '.'3,i ., ' ' ' J ' , , , - f Q i 'Ji va L -. -.. -.

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 Ellsworth Drew. 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. -HARVEY GEIST, '32. 32 J UNIORS Top Rofw: Second Rofw.

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 piccolo. 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-. 43 CLUBS 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. 5-5 , K A, 3 ew W' 1 11? ,Q R3 :B U A ' x Z 2 45' gji 4 xj. '4 4, ,W ..v. ,., , f'f:.- mas-- -+ .

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: President ,. , .. ..., . Aaron Albright Vice-President , Rodger Stutz Secretary ,. Glen Thompson 51 CLUBS Top Rofw: Setz, Bieri, Morrissette, Holmberg, Nadelhoffer, Bjorseth, Numerich, Barnat. Second Rome: Reichenbacher, NValdo, Kobeienz, Hipp, Boorkman, Kelley, Dittman, D.

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.

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 were successful.

Travel talks were given at the meetings, by the students, dealing with Span- ish and South American life and ideals. A special meeting was held lllarch 12, in the evening, and the club and its guests, the other language clubs, enjoyed a lecture given by lkflr. Reber, a well known lecturer of VVheaton, Illinois.

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- eral weeks. Under the capable leadership of the oflicers and the advisers, Miss Gleason, the club has accomplished a great deal this year.

Der Deutsche Verein INCIQ September, 192-l, when the German Club was reorganized, it has become one of East High's most prominent organizations.

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. lllr. E. B. Davis of the Y. lvl. C.

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 the programs. 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.

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.

Delphi 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. Much good has been derived from the club, due to the excellent supervision and leadership of lwiss Comiskey, who has -so ably led the organization through a very successful year.

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 themselves. ' 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. 68 GIRLS, ATHLETICS ...il Nliller Miss Kathary Fey Crane Putnam Swinehainer 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 achieved. 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. 69 GIRLS, ATHLETICS Tibhettza Fey King Beitel Swinehamer 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. 70 GIRLS, ATHLETICS xfy .xxX W Haslem Henry Fick Gage Sauer Cline Myers Brugger Capt. Brengle Rediske Volleyball 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. the seniors. 71 GIRLS' ATHLETICS Maley Myers Brugger Dick Logue Coward Reamy Kopp Wulf Goblet Basketball 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 the tournament. 72 GIRLS' ATHLETICS 'N' 1'-vw Nr! vtw M Rediske Myers Bauman Tennis 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. 73 LQSX wg.- im. LFQEG. BOYS' ATHLETIC S -v..

J ' 1 ' , ' W J, V lm i 3 ,p M, Coaches COACH THoMPsoN 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 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 are proud. 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. COACH STUTZ 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. 76 xi BOYS, ATHLETICS Mr. Albright Howard Ream Mr. Rosenbarger Mr. Davis Coaches 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. COACH ALBRIGHT 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. COACH ROSIQNBARGER 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. COACH REANI 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. 77 7 BOYS AT H LETICS , , l 'S of W- 1-7-1 X 0 l . , Top Rofw: Mr. Thompson, Mr. Albright, H.

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 regime. 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. ' WHEATON GAME 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 a runaway. 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 contributions. FREEPORT GANIE 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 large gains. BELVIDERE GAME 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. 80 BOYS, ATHLETICS svcsmmt F0-'STED DY!-E' CNTTNAN 1 George Steinke pre-ved L0 be mme or , the greateist footbuilcaptains that ever flgd the red and black BANKQ EQMILLED WA'-00 bi BOYS, ATHLETICS ELGIN 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. ROCKFORD 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. BOWEN 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. JOLIET 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. VVEST HIGH 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 the game. 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.

BEACH r1.Mu.1.ER TEUEQLE 85 BOYS' ATHLETICS Lightweight football 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. WHEATON GAME 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. FRIQEPORT GAME 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. 86 BOYS' ATIILIQTICS ,:'R' 1 .

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 apiece. ELGIN GAME 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 keep warm. 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. ROCKFORD GAME 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. JOLIET GAME 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.

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. Altho well matched in the first part of the game, the Rabs forged ahead to win. 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 points. 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. 92 BOYS, ATHLETICS ' 1 ' f CQ NN5 ! !! BALL E N5 1. Ow SCHINDELBECK , EE D 1T T MAN f ' i .

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 in succession. 94 BOYS' ATHLETICS rzanz Koemswz A M ,L ' ,A 12 WALTER5 HAwu.r:v"' ,I 'tak u g : V Wwflfihs f b.iTz6 f5n' this- hbaskgzfbgliizcgflrt base fowl.

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.

The Jenks five fought all through the tournament not losing a battle and coming out on top to prove themselves victors. Nliss Holadayls section finished a close second, losing to the champs by only one point in a close battle. hir. Davis' section finished third with four victories and but two defeats, making the third senior section entered in the league stand above underclass rivals. The noon tourney as a whole proved a success due to Mr. Gunderson, who was in charge of the students participating.

Twice, East beat teams that had previously beaten them two games in the conference season. DISTRICT TOURNAMENT 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 SECTICNAL TOURNAMENT 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. 98 MM I l of foal' Aurora f '15 X BOYS' ATHLETICS VV. Miller, lWr.

The first outdoor track meet was .staged on the York's home field at Elmhurst. East High took nine out of fifteen firsts. Keeping up the old East spirit, that was only defeated once in a dual track meet in the past ten years, the Red and Black tracksters emerged victorious over Joliet, 73 to 48. The meet was staged on the local field. Coach Thompsonis color bearers again came thru with honors, when the crack Wheaton aggregation went down to defeat, the humiliation reading East High, 89, Wheaton, 38. East won ten firsts, eight seconds, and ten thirds. Placing men in every event but the 100 yard dash, East easily gained 48 points to win the Kane County Track and Field lVIeet. Elgin was the closest rival gather- ing 35 points to their credit. Dittman and Culver both broke records, the former breaking two. Playing host to 500 athletes of thirty teams, East High came thru to win the District Track Meet, and made themselves this district's representatives in the state finals. East won but two firsts, but placed enough second, third. and fourth men to take 3-l points and win the meet. Altho several men qualified in the preliminary heats, no East High men placed in the finals of the State Track Meet. Nine men were sent to Urbana to represent East High. The Big Six track closed the season for the Thompson men, after a successful track season. 101 BOYS' ATHLETICS Etzkorn Haag Waldo Culver -l-l'l2 RCIGY TZGTTIS 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 the 440. 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, Foster, Ostberg, and Fowler, high jump, Foster in the broadjumpg Alfsen, Ball, and Reichenbacher, shot put and discus throw, Petersohn and Steinke in the javelin throw. The track team with such a roster has proved itself capable under Coach Thomp- son's tutelage. 102 BOYS, ATH LETICS l Top Row: Banks, Narlelhotler, Reichenbacher, Steinke, XValdo, Kraft, lluring.

Q . 4 X-fre gi .f-g u ART Goddard Burnham Putnam Stoner Long 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 sewing classes. 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 animal drawing. 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. 105 DRAMA Top Row: Freilinger, Waldo, Steinke, Ashbrook, Zilly.

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, dramatic coach. 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: ' Firxt Senzesler Uffire TSFFOIIII St'llll'3'fFI' .lack Kobelenz .,.., ,.,.... P resident .......,.. ...,...,.......

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 distribution. 109 MUSIC 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. Music Festival 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. Van Beethoven. 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. Reese. 110 MUSIC 1,il17ll1'-TVICYCIS, Christensen.

For this year the daily practice was changed from the noon period to the last period in the morning which indeed ,proved very beneficial. 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. 111 MUSIC 1 D rin, Stone, Cutter.

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 Aurora.

Res Latinae 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 Wildemuth. The other members of the staff are: Assistant Editor, Connie Chioles: Circu- lation liflanager, Zalmon Goldsmith, Art Editor, Katharine Hassett, Science Editor, Nicholas Sutag Society Editor, Bonnie Cortum: Joke Editor, Alames Crittonq ln- quiring Reporter, lilargaret Curry: Exchange Editor, Robert VVheelerg Stenogra- phers, Rose Kobor and Margaret Saltzmang Reporters, Allison Ashbrook.

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. 114 PUBLICATIONS Top Rofw: Kuhn, Chase, J. Ashbrook, Mortimer, Gleason. Second Ro-w: A. Ashbrook, Culver, Klimpke, Petersohn, Staih, Horton.

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 schedule. 115 PUBLICATIONS The Speeulum Stall Editor ....,,,..,., ...,,.

Qualifications for Quill and Scroll are as follows: The candidate must be either a junior, senior, or post-graduateg he must be in the' upper third of his class in scholastic standing during the year, he must have done superior work in writing. editing, or business management. The faculty adviser of the staff must recommend the applicant and submit several samples of his work to the national secretary-treasurer at the University of Iowa to obtain his approval. Quill and Scroll is a national honorary society for high school journalists. It was organized in 1926 when East High was admitted as a charter member. At present the society is composed of 500 chapters with 10,000 members. The society gives recognition to better journalistic efforts. Its aim is to promote journalism in the high school, but work of the local chapters is not controlled by the national oflices. Quill and Scroll sponsors many literary contests during the year and publishes a book, "Best Creative W0l'k in American High Schools." The Quill and Scroll magazine is sent to all members bi-monthly. It contains helpful material for writing, and journalistic events from other schools. 120 EXECUTIVE Top Rofw: MeAfoos, Dittman, Albright, Davis, VValters.

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 successfully. The officers for the year were: President ,, . . ...,.i .,.. . ....,..,.. , ..

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.

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 use later. These contests furnished the debaters experience which will be to their advantage if they desire to participate again next year. Four of the six speakers are expected to return next year.

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. 124 FORENSIC 5 v Q Q 3 Weisman Kuhn btoner King Chioles Lambert Hill Goldsmith 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 society. 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.

There are gaiety and wine, laughter and much dancing. There will also be bullfights and if you have the ahcionada you will hurry to the bullfights to see the matador in his green breeches and heavy gold cape salute the President of the Association. Riding into the ring the fighter will skillfully and dangerously wear down the bull ready for the kill while the people shout and scream with emotion. But even bullfights are not all serious. Before the regular bullfight, into the ring dances the clown matador and behind him the bull with his padded horns. Amidst the shrieks and laughter of the crowds the clown is tossed and buffeted about by the tame bull whose padded horns can do no harm. In our book, too, there must be a place where half in seriousness, as in the real bullfight, and half in play, with the clown matador, we bring out the shadow of real life and the light of fun, blending the two into an enjoyable picture. ,-,Y,,,, Y.,,,',,, ... ..- -an-W - '- -IL-1 4- 'inf 6 o 4 ,H , i,-,,g,-,- 5 wp ..,,. , ,. -2,5 L fy mm f -5 I ,5-. a 'u 4.

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 were served. 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- sibilitiesfl 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: President . .. ...... lVIrs.

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 be wasted. 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, third fioor. 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 Cafeteria. 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. 128 FEATURES Top Rofw: Miss Juedes, NIV.

The Cadets 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 Aluedes: Kliss Jenks, bliss Baker, llliss Thomas. Nliss Heinmillebrg bliss Hredlow.

Randall Renz leaves the curl he fondly cut from Katherine Skoglund to lVlr. VValters in the hope that he will put it in the trophy case. It took Everett lfnslow and Sellers Pyle too long to decide what they wanted to leave. Watch for it in the next annual. Helen Couve leaves the hair net in which she ensnared many a heart to lllary Alice Crane and Katharine Hassett.

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. at HK -319 ff? W In 1935 East.High will be the East Side junior High and the new East High will be known as Central High.

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 142 FEATURES 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 143 FEATURES 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 gardens.

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.

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 Travel Guild 'of Chicago for the pictures in the scenic section, and Helen Shohoney for the woids accompanying both the opening section and the division pages of the Speculum.
