'HOT TO BE slighted as attention is focused on the new building' the old
high school which has been serving the community faithfully cele
brated 1tS thirtieth birthday in March
This occasion might have passed unnoticed had it not been for the
fact that the Crimson staff decided to use the above sketch which was
done by Lee H Salisbury a student in the Edgerton high school and a
member of the first graduating class to hold 1ts commencement in this
In communicating with Mr Salisbury who has become a recognized
artist the staff found that he and Miss Jessica North were the two sen
iors selected to write and deliver the dedicatory speeches thirty years ago
The name of Miss Florence Child who generously contributed to the
school fund IS especially honored in the history of the high school The
building for which she was largely responsible will remain in service with
the specialized phases of school life making their home in the new auxil-

LUHEN THE new auxiliary high school celebrates lts first birthday in
October the citizens of Edgerton will realize a dream which has
been before them constantly as the enrollment of the high school has in
creased and as the curriculum has expanded
Thirty years have seen the development of vocal and lnstrumental
instruction an expansion of the physical educatlon program a new em
phasis in the field of art and the 1n1t1at1on of the home economics and
agriculture departments which are a vital part of school life
To house these departments to allow more room for lockers and rest
rooms and to give students the benefit of modern equ1pment the city of
Edgerton with the aid of a government grant has been able to construct
the new unit.
The fulfillment of this dream will reward all those who for more than
a year have made the project their chief interest by contributing their
loyal support in the form of financial aid and time.

Ii EIGNING over the annual Junior Prom which was held in the high
I school gymnasium on May 19 were his majesty, Raymond Chapman,
and his queen, Bonnie Peterson.
Swirling couples in a modernistic setting, rhythmic music by Foster
Diley and his orchestra, soft melodies by the vocalists, and a pervading
friendly spirit made the little kingdom of the Junior class a fun lover's
Class members and seniors enjoyed a royal banquet served by the
band mothers before the dancing began, and, together with their guests,
found many compliments during the evening for the loyal workers, under
the guidance of Miss Olsen, who were responsible for the success of the

fl COLORFUL narrative of modern college life th!-fperetta produced
I by the high school in three performances on May 0 and 6 proved a
highlight in entertainment features during the year
Although special recognition is due the stellar performances of those
in leading roles the whole cast of Campus Daze deserves credit for a
surprizingly mature and finished production.
Since this was the first time that the speech and music departments
combined their efforts for a single project, its success is significant. Miss
Mitchell and Miss Adams directed the production while Mr. Boyd pro-
vided the accompaniment.

' HE SCARLET uniformed band, headed by its color guard and drum
major, Horace Southworth, and directed by Maurice O. Boyd, was the
pride and joy of Edgerton hearts as it marched down the new football
field last fall.
Climaxing its concert activity at the February program when Ray-
mond Dvorak, university band leader, acted as guest conductor, the
organization received praise for its great precision and mature technique.
Contributing largely to the success of the band, the mothers raised
money this year for new uniforms, especially those worn by the color
guard. A new banner was also donated by the band mothers.
To augment the instruments of the organization, the school purchased
one pair of tympani, a bass horn, four French horns, an oboe, a bassoon,
and a small drum.
The band attended the music festival held this year at Milton.
