Kerr, John V Hamburg, and William Goebel, whose work in Edgerton High School has made our four years here successful ones, we, the Senior Class of nineteen hundred forty, gratefully dedicate our year book. It is especially appropriate that this book be dedicated to these men. The theme of the 1940 Crimson is "Modern Life in a Modern School", and these teachers, in their years of service, have shown that modern spirit which reflects our school life. f gf 'll H S? 4 ' gaisg CU'-r ff I' 14 S Ns ,, WWLK ZfQA H+ 9 C ' M If 7HlS IS Hobby Lobby. Today we present the Edgerton High School Faculty, which is as modern in its hobbies as it is in its work. Read- ing around the page, we find our teachers as- sembled at Hobby Lobby. Our superintendent, Mr. Klaus, spends his time, spare and otherwise, with architects' draw- ings and builders' samples, planning big things for our new auxiliary buiding. The Home Economics and Agriculture depart- ments believe that variety is the spice of recrea- tion. Miss Aust likes hiking, skiing, and making dressesg Miss Bilstein, sports, experimental cook- ing, and writing feature stories. Mr, Hamilton's avocation is hunting, and Mr. Pacey's is athletics. Although Miss Dudley teaches art and Miss Olsen, history, they both enjoy handcrafts in their spare time. Two other phases of the arts are en- joyed by Mr. Hamburg, who collects books fnot necessarily on his teaching subject, social stu- diesj, and by Miss Duling, who takes a rest from mathematics with music. Miss Cavener, our librarian, collects old coins and Indian arrow heads, while Miss Gutzmer, the school secretary, also collects coins and works on an afghan.

' q ,v 'Ag ri Miss Kienow relaxes from her commercial duties by skating, while Mr. Kerr carries his manual arts work into his hobby by building a house trailer and a new home. The English department finds fun in a variety of activities. Miss Huhn enjoys tennis and play- ing the violin. Miss Wagner raises Cocker Span- iels and writes stories in her spare time. Miss McMeans likes reading and skating, and Miss Jae- ger finds a change from Junior High teaching with a Senior High English class. The musicians, Mr. Boyd and Miss Ness, ex- tend their enjoyment of music beyond their clas- ses and into their leisure. Mr. Boyd also collects toy animals, and Miss Ness knits. When they leave their laboratories, Mr. Rood becomes a biologist whose main interest is fish- ing, and Mr. Bloss, a physicist who enjoys photo- graphy. Coach Ewers needs no hobby, as he spends all his time on sports. Miss Holloway, too, enjoys her occupation, and spends her leisure time on music, hiking, and reading. Whether they are seen behind a school desk or astride a hobby horse, Edgerton teachers main- tain the modern, up-to-date spirit which is typical of Edgerton High School. 'ix Q EA.-.

An unusual number of meetings was necessary to push forward building plansg the board, which usually met once a month, got together two and three times monthly. In addition, committees met twice a week before the new building was under full construction. In considering all the problems of the school year, the Board approved the purchase of a school bus by the Agriculture and Athletic departments, purchased other necessary equipment, and determined school policies and plans. f .5 QW I, ' - ' f -Q' aol' , .- Q f.'zQf5'zf ' . 5 ,H :ban ,ff K , t Y' V A ,V S2 Aiwa? . . , Q 3, Q, K - , JW' ' K 'v Q?

L Our freshman and sophomore days were not especially notable for achievement. The class members, however, were establishing themselves in all school activities and preparing for active leadership in their organi- zations. During those first two years, as well as the last two, the class of 1940 invariably came out on top in all competition between classes in contests involving such school aiairs as S. A. A. memberships, ticket sales, Good- fellows club, and subscriptions to school publications. This record is indica- tive of the class' school spirit, and is a record which may be pointed at with justifiable pride. The busiest days of our Junior year were the weeks ,prior to the Junior Prom. Before attending the Prom, the members of the Junior and Senior Classes sat dawn to an excellent banquet prepared and served by the Band Mothers. The gym was decorated in a modern theme. This Junior year showed our class to be an enterprising organization. The class acquired a nickelodeon and sponsored all-school Social Hours. As well as providing enjoyment for the student body, the venture proved itself profit- able to the class. W ' Our senior year saw the class reach its height as it assumed the reins and responsibilities of leadership in the student body. Among the major undertakings of the class as Seniors was the class play, Booth Tarkington's "Seventeen". This production showed the versatility and talent of the class. As the days of Commencement approach, we look back on our days here with respect for the faculty and good wishes forour successors. .. ,.,., .........:.gl. , , , , ,.i . .' ii ..,J.,.n, ..

When the annual battle with Stoughton was played, October 27, the score ended in a 6-6 deadlock. The team, on the whole, was a hard-working group of boys that came along fast as the season progressed. Credit is due to Captain Viney for being such a fine Sportsman. fe .. 7 . ' W s leafs l e. J.

Meeting a long-felt need, the new building contains a gym- nasium which is the joy of every students' heart, home economics and agriculture laboratories and shops, music and band rooms, and an art labora- tory. The two general meeting rooms, as well as the entire building, are used by the community as a whole.
