The East Lynn High School, and Grade School was
erected in 1915. In 1925, the gymnasium was added to the
main building. In 1939 the farm shop and bus garage was
built. The buildings, and the interiors of the buildings are in
good condition, due to the excellent janitorial service and the
interest 'of the boards in maintaining a well kept school.

At the special election on February 22, 1914, the ques-
tion of whether or not to have an East Lynn High School -dis--
trict was voted upon, and it was carried by a large majority.

first meeting at 7:30 for the purpose of organizing and discuss-
ing a new school building.
On April 11, 1914, a second special election was held
for the purpose of deciding Whether or not there should be a
new school building. The sites considered were the following:
The T. G. Luxton site which contained about four acres, and is
located approximately where the Harkness house now stands,
occupied by Mr. Von Behren and family, The Hall site, which
is located in the northwestern part of East Lynn upon which
the three Arthur Hall houses now stand, The third and the one
chosen was the Leemon site-where the building itself now
stands and where the former school house stood.

dollars CS29,000D and the cost of the equipment was nine hun-
dred and seventy dollars 139703. In the Summer of 1925 a
new gymnasium was erected at the cost of fifteen thousand

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY ,
On August 31, 1936, twenty-four new freight cars in the
form of twenty-four Freshmen were added to the E. L. H. S.
LINE. Before starting on their long four years journey they
picked up another car CLeslie Bushongl in the halls of East
Lynn High School, thus making their number twenty-five.
They were pulled through the freshman year by an 2 ble engine
and advisor, Miss Harriet Lee, their engineer being Dale
Hammerton, Fireman, Anne Leigh, Brakeman, Marie Severin-
song Representative to the Council of the railroad line, Elea-
nor Montross, and railroad news Reporter, Viola Gudeman.
Chugging along at a low rate of speed, they tried to get
accustomed to the rules and regulations of this new line, but
quite frequently jumped the tracks. After two months of this
they lostone car fVirginia Marshallb .
During Christmas vacation, a box car tEddie Montrossl
jumped the tracks and never returned to our Freshman train
the rest of the year because of illness.
In the first year of rough travel the Freshman line was
quite active in several activities, such as baseball, basket ball,
The next fall found 20 improved cars returning to the
E. L. H. S. LINE to begin their Sophomore year, Bob McIntyre
and Eleanor Montross, and Lawrence Cork having switched to
W. T. H. S. and R. T.,H. S. freight lines.
During our Sophomore year we travelled along at an
increasing rate of speed with Mr. Alwin Von Behren
as our engine and advisor, Mary Louise Lee was Engineer this
time, Anne Leigh, Firemang Dale Hammerton, Brakeman.
Betty Ripley, Representative to the Council of the railroad
line, and Bernice Otto railroad news Reporter.
When our sophomore journey was half .completed we
lost a car, namely Junior Spurling, but replaced him with an-
other, Don McConnell, from the A. T. H. S. railroad line.
Again several students took an active part in various
September, 1938, eighteen jolly passengers purchased
tickets for the journey through the Junior year. After the
tickets had been collected by our conductor and principal, Mr.
Von Behren, we discover-ml Grace Probasco and Steve Perry
were not returning and Ellen Marie Allen was transferring to
Milford High School. But we picked up a new passenger, Irene
Frankum, who came here from Cissna Park High School.
At a very fast rate of speed we traveled on with tha
counsel and guidance of our advisor and engine, Mrs. Eleanor
Deal. We elected Lorraine Olson, Engineer, Betty Ripley,
Fireman, Wayne Eckersley, Br:-ikemang Bernice Otto and Don
McConnell representatives to the council of the railroad, and
lola Hawthorne reporter. Dale Hammerton and Viola Gude-
man were elected repesentativcs at large of the entire council
of the railroad.
On November 23, we presented our Junior play "A
Ready Made Family" which was a great success. This year
more passengers took part in various activities than in previ-
ous years. Some of the boys received letters in athletics, name-
ly Don McConnell and Dale Hamimerton.
We ended our Junior year by giving the Seniors a very
At the beginning of the fourth and last lap of our
journey to the station of Commencement, 15 of our previous 18
returned to an improved train, the East Lynn Zephyr, for we
were anxious to reach our goal.
As the tickets were being collected this year another
decrease of passengers was perceived. Iola Hawthorne and
Irene Frankurn attended Milford High School and Mary Eliza-
beth Moore, went to Harvey High at Harvey.
Now being supposedly dignified Seniors, we held a
meeting with our advisor and engine, Miss Bane to elect our
leaders. Don McConnell was chosen Engineer, Betty Ripley,
Fireman, Mary Lee, Brakemang Anne Leigh and Wayne Ecker-
sley, Representatives to the Council of the Railroad, Lorraine
Olson, Reporter, Dale Hammerton and Bernice Otto were
chosen as Representatives at large of the entire Council of the
During this last part of our journey we lost a passenger,
Emory Rassmussen, lessening our number to fourteen.
Several passengers again took part in various activities
and the Senior play "Crashing Society" was presented on
March 29, with all passengers participating except Leslie
Bushong who acted as stage manager, and Jean Johnson who
was business manager.
Those who have succeeded in traveling to the end of our
journey and will receive diplomas as awards on May 29, are
Leslie Bushong, Wayne Eckersley, Viola Gudeman, Dale Ham-
merton, Arthur Jacob, Jean Johnson, Mary Louise Lee, Anna-
bel Leigh, Donald McConnell, Lorraine Olson, Bernice Otto,
Betty Ripley, Marie Severinson and Melvin Stock.
On that date these fourteen passengers will bid their
last goodbye to dear old E. L. H. S. Line with the satisfaction
that no great obstacles ever barred their way and caused their
train of Education to crash.

SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY
May 1, 1960
The other day I acquired some pretty interesting infor-
mation about the members of the class of 1940. It happened
Upon hearing that the world's most famous tap dancer,
Mary Louise Lee, was to be at the Chicago Theatre starting
her tenth week of personal appearances, I thought it worth
while, since she was my old school mate to journey to Chicago
to see her. As I started out I noticed the gas tank of my
car was almost empty, so I stopped at the nearest Standard
Service Station which was attended by ano-ther school mate,
Marie Severinson, who helped her husband, Bill Johnson, run
Having enjoyed a great show the night before, I awoke
in a childish mood the next morning and decided to visit Jolly
Joe on his morning program. While I was visiting this pro-
gram, Jolly Joe gave me the opportunity to look through his
My first thought was to turn it toward home, anal un-
used to this instrument I happened to focus it on Riley, and
there saw Lorraine Olson preparing breakfast for her hus-
ba.nd, Richard Wilson, and her three children. Her husband is
now a very prosperous man being Mayor of Riley.
I next turned the instument to Hollywood where I saw
Leslie Bushong as a cop on a motorcycle arresting Baby San-diy
I turned my glance a little and I saw Wayne Eckersley,
who was Hollywood's best known Play Boiy, sitting in his SE-2050
a week apartment reading a home town magazine. I looked
over his shoulder and saw another familiar face, but in a
rather unfamiliar situation. It was a. picture of no other than
Dale Hammerton preaching upon his favorite subject, "Tem-
To my amazement when my telescope passed over Louis-
ville, Kentucky I saw Art Jacobs acting as janitor 'in a
"Distillery", Suddenly he rushed out the door with a pink
discharge slip in his hand. We decided that the liquor had be-
come so strong that it swept the place out, and they had no
further use for a janitor.
Turning the telescope slightly I next saw a little town
whose only store bore the name of "Duck Town, Tennessee".
Here I saw Annabel Leigh, a.n old maid seamstress who went
from house to house gathering gossip as well as business.
Deciding to change the View to a larger city I turned it

"Music for every student and every student for Music."
Every stu-dent needs an emotional outlet, and music is
the most natural and undoubtedly the most beneficial.
The various music groups of East Lynn High School have
been very active throughout the year 1939-1940. The first
public appearance of the year was made on October 17th when
the Girls' Glee Clubl Cccmposed of 18 voicesj presented a
program over Radio Station WDAN, Danville, Illinois. Several
numbers by the noted composer, Brahms, were rendered,
along with the well known "When Day Is Done" by Katscher.
At the Fall Festival, November 16 and 17, our music
department gave several numbers. The Mixed Chorus, Girls'
Glee Club, Boys' Glee Club and Orchestra presented programs
at each of the four sessions respectively.
One of the highlights of the year's musical activity was
the Vesper Service of Christmas Carols on Sunday afternoon,
December 17th. By candlelight a choir of 29 selected voices
sang to a capacity filled church. Such old familiar carols as
Palestrina's "Gloria Patri", Silent Night", The First Noel",
lent much to the sacred atmosphere of the Christmas season.
The complete program was repeated over Radio Station
WDAN the week following.
On May first a Spring Musicale was presented by the
entire Musical Department. A theme of 'fMusic From Foreign
Lands" was carried throughout the program-a special part
being devoted to the rendition of the loved Negro Spirituals.
An interesting arrangement for Chorus and Orchestra of the
Italian, Denza's "Funiculi, Funiculi", was of especial interest
on this concert. Various parts of this program were broadcast
over Station WDAN.
Aside from the larger musical organizations we have
several ensemble groups which have presented programs at
church, banquets and club meetings in East Lynn and nearby
communities. Within our school we have a Girls' Trio, a Mixed
Quartet, and an Instrumental Trio composed of piano, flute,
As worthwhile participants in the field of music, we per-
sistently seek the crowning aim of musical activity-beauty of
tone and expression. Music reaches and awakens the sense of
beauty and provides the most ready and natural means for its
"Music for everyone and everyone for Music."

Under the superb coaching of Mr. Von Behren the 1939-
40 basketball team proved fairly successful with drawbacks
due to the fact that several inexperienced boys were out for
the squad and also several were hindered in height.
We believe that many fans of the 1939-40 team were
not primarily a group of fans that came to watch the games
and went away down hearted because of a defeat. East Lynn
basketball boys have always been noted for their scrappy
playing to the last seconds of the game and never giving up.
The regular team consisted of, Arthur Jacob, center,
Kenneth Bauer, forwardg Wayne Denman, forwardg Donald
McConnell, guard, and Dale Hammerton, guard.
'Art' Jacob proved very successful at the ,position. He
carried out his job in getting rebounds. Art had the spirit to
fight hard to the finish.
'Kenny' Bauer, although hindered in size and weight
carried on very successfully. He was fast and very clever in
handling the ball. "Soc" was also a good shot from almost any-
where on the floor.
Wayne Denman fulfilled his duties playing the other
forward position. "Nickle Plate" was a very hard rebounder
and a good shot from the side of the floor and in the pivot
position. Rex will show up greatly next year. .
Dale Hammerton showed his ability as a very successful
guard. He was a very heady player and clever ball handler.
Hammerton acted as Captain of the H39-40" team and we are
firm in our belief that he was liked by all players and fans.
Donald McConnell took charge of the other guard posi-
tion. Although not a heavy-scorer Don justified himself as one
of the steadiest players on the team. He was the main spark in
the defensive position.
An invitational tourney was held at Potomac. Teams
competing were: Armstrong, East Lynn, Henning and Poto-
mac. Drawings were made just before the game with
Armstrong playing Potomac and East Lynn drawing Henning.
The first game was won by Potomac. The second game of the
evening was a thrilling upset, with Henning winning over East
Lynn by a mere three points.
The second evening came up with Henning playing
Potomac and East Lynn playing Armstrong. East Lynn came
back the second night to defeat the Armstrong five and win
the third place trophy. Potomac won the second game of the
evening seizing the first place trophy and the second place
was awarded to the scrappy Henning boys,

THE COUNTY TOURNAMENT
The county Tournament was played at Hoopeston with
East Lynn playing the Rankin five. Within the last two sec-
onds to play, East Lynn was leading one point but with only
one second to play, Rankin's sparing forward Shepard dropped
a beautiful left handed shot to take the game from East Lynn.
The finals of the county Tournament -were held at West-
ville with Indianola shaking' off all opponents and winning
the 1940 County Championship. The scrappy north end Ross-
ville five took second, Armstrong defeated Oakwood for third
leaving Oakwood in fourth place.

Due to the fact that practically two-thirds of the team
was inexperienced, the baseball season can be considered a
success. Undoubtedly next season will be more successful,
even though, Hammerton, Jacob, and McConnell will be lost
The "39" team consisted as followsg Dale Hammerton,
Pitcherg Don McConnell, Catcherg Art Jacob, first baseg LeRoy
Martin, second base, Wayne Denman, Short Stopg Victor
Smock, Third base, Kenneth Brassfield, Left field, Richard
McConnell, Center fieldg Robert Wright, Right field.
Dale Hammerton proved to be very good on the hill,
doing his part pitching and in batting he also showed up
Donald McConnell aided by his stalky build was one of
the best back stops in the league. Usually batted in cleanup
position and led the team in batting.
Art Jacob, favored with his height and lankness, served
his time well at the first base position.
LeRoy Martin held down the second base position and
substantiated his activeness as an infielder.
Wayne Denman, the experienced short stop from last
year, handled batting and fielding with a great deal of tact-
fullness. Wayne has good prospects for a pitcher for his next
Victor Smock, the small but mighty third baseman did a
very good job playing his position. "Vic" also did his part at
Kenneth Brassfield proved to be a very good left fielder
and will be heard of greatly in his next two years.
Richard McConnell, a freshman did very well in center
field considering that he was practically unknown to baseball.
y Robert Wright had right field under his command. Bob
was also a good batter and will help bring in the scores in the
next three years for East Lynn. ,

I looked a little further in New York, and who should

I moved the telescope until I saw Washington, D. C.,
where I spied Mr. Don McConnell carrying mail. Just then I
remembered seeing in the newspaper that he had received his
fifth divorce. Being disappointed in females he had decided to
become a ma.ilman.
Next I focused my telescope across the water to Switzer-
land. Here I saw Viola Gudeman running a large school for
skiing. Helping her was a French Marquis who, I calculated,
was her husband.
After this interesting experience Iwas just ready to
return the telescope to Jolly Joe when my eye caught China,
and here I saw Melvin Stock and Betty Ripley who were
happily married. Looking closer I saw that Betty was doing
Missionary work in China, she was teaching little Chinese
children how to"Jitterbug". Out in the street I saw Melvin
drawing a Rickshaw.
"It is now time for me to check up on the old dressing
race," I heard Jolly Joe say, so my adventure was over. I left
the studio and got into my car and headed for home.
On the way home I thought of all those I had seen
through the magic telescope and decided I had seen the
whole senior class of 1940.

, Bernice Edna. Otto do hereby will and bequeath my poetic
a.bility to Mr. Von Behren so that he can teach poetry
instead of History to his succeeding Senior Classes.
I, Annabel Leigh do hereby will and bequeath my ability in
leadership to George Keitzmann.
I, Eldon Wayne Eckersly do hereby will and bequeath my
shyness to Wayne Denman, which I am sure he can use
quite appropriately in Music Class.

I believe in the United States of America as a govern-
ment of the people, by the people, for the people, whose just
powers are derived from the consent of the governed, a demo-
cracy in a republic, a sovereign nation of many sovereign
states, perfect union, one and inseparable, established upon
those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity
for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes
I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it:
to support its constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag'
and to defend it against all enemies.
