The program is designed to provide vocational training in a trade on a part-time basis for high school students during their junior and senior years. The students alternate on a half day basis between study in school and training on the job as an employee. During the time in employ- ment, the student is learning the occupation and prac ticing the skills. The advantages of diversified occupations for stu- dents are these: trains a student for a specific trade, permits student to start learning a trade while in high school, permits student to earn a learner's wage while in training, provides training in theory and practice in an occupation, offers an organized plan to training on the job under actual industrial conditions, and the stu- dent receives his regular high school diploma when grad- uating. Mr. Clayton Slifer is in charge of the diversified occupations program at Effingham High School. Janet Marten is employed each afternoon by Dr. G. R. Starr. She is training to be a dental assistant. ln this picture she is shown giving chairside assistance to Dr. Starr. in Dorothy Bush spends her afternoons on the job at the Effingham Daily News where she is learning to be a linotype operator under the direction of Albert Paugh Daily News shop foreman.

The wealth of humor, a quality that the Seniors possess to a great degree, can well be adapted to their future living. Seeing the amusing aspect of a situation which might upset the average student is a special talent that belongs to the Seniors. Such a remark is not intended to convey adverse criticism: on the contrary, few classes show such a serious purpose when studying. . Much of their success as a class is due to the great amount of energy expended so willingly and the enthusiasm with which they accomplish their tasks. Furthermore, they are not hasty in their decisions, they examine ideas and then decide whether or not they are based on facts or opinions. Such clear think- ing will be useful to them in the future. The Senior Class has maintained DOI only a standard of proficiency in many phases of school activities, but its leadership is promising. It was this class that inaugurated the honor study halls--an innovation that the faculty hopes will continue. Pleasant are our thoughts of the Seniors who have been friendly, co-operative, and delightful to in- struct. The memories of such happy days cannot easily be erased from our minds. We wish them the best of luck and happiness, and we are grateful for many happy memories. --1R.o.Jlwel1 LARRY D, ALLEN FLOYD LEO ANDERSON JOHN M.

MILUNE, DDS. HOMECOMING DANCE On October l2, the annual Homecoming Dance was held at the high school gymnasium following the Effingham-Paris game. Beautiful fall colors in leaves and decorations set the mood for the evening and harmonized with the theme, "Autumn Promenade," The orchestra of Ray Ellis led the dancers into a night of delight and excitement. Queen Karen Niccum is leading the queen's dance with her escort, Richard Wooley, while those who watch gather the beauty and excitement which this night holds for her, W Af B-fivj, f The traditional grand march is an event to remember as the couples mix and find their way through the crowd. Facing the camera are Barbara Webb, Judy Cooley, Phil Carlock, Bob Osborn, Ginger Leake, Glenda Bushue, and Bob Smith, x ' N.

They have had an enjoyable evening and ries in the future, bn will treasure it and its memo- "We'll Plaster Paris" was the theme of the freshman class float, Representing the Flaming Hearts are Freddy Purdy and Noble Brown. Crying over the misfortune of the Paris Tigers are Dick Dammermann, Linda Ashworth, Marjo Burnett, Sally Metzelaars, Roberta Bogan, and JGCRY BGUICS. The sophomore class received second place with their float, "Paris Hasn't a Ghost of a Chance. " Ierry Brown reigns over the defeated player, Larry Bosley, while Ruthie Davis and Cheryl Ragel deal the fatal hand, HOMECOMING FLOATS The winning float, "The Last Time I Saw Paris," was displayed by the senior class. Chuck Ealy, Randall Schormann, Frank Davis, and Richard Wooley have gathered together in memory of the defeated rival of the Paris Tigers. Don Thomas lies silent in defeat while representing the opposing team. The D,E, float, "Skin-Um, " held first place in club competition. Students representing the club are David McWhorter, Rita Smith, Leo Schmohe, Marilyn White, Floyd Anderson, Mary Rentfrow, Don Lowry, and James Fagan. The students were very original in that they used a real tiger skin to represent the Paris Tigers. -UM HOLIDAY DANCE The queen candidates and attendants for the annual Holiday Dance are chosen from their classes and voted on by the student body. Only seniors are eligible for the honor of queen, but the underclassmen realize that in the near future they will have their chance. The girls show a merry holiday spirit as the big event comes near. Each is experiencing the thought of donning a beautiful gown and being a recognized part of the Holiday Dance. Not only the queen candidates and attendants felt the holiday spirit, but students were joyous and willing to participate in the various activities of the season. This poem was written by Sarah Gravenhorst in a freshman English class, and it shows how the students had captured the spirit of the event, HOLIDAY DANCE The Holiday Dance is coming, It sends all the girls running To the shops and to the towns, To purchase beautiful gowns. Whispers and rumors are circling 'round, Who is to wear the Queen's crown? It is sure to be a popular lass, We know she'll be from the senior class. Marilyn is so pretty and gay, Lynne looks quiet but has much to say, Edith has a sparkling personality, I'm sure our queen will be of quality! The happy queen candidates are, front row: Lynne Luttrell, Edith Matthews, and Marilyn Strobel, while the attendants, Carolyn Fisher, Beverly Tilley, Colleen Loy, Pat Bush, Joan Percival, and Sharon Barbee wonder who will be the chosen one.

The Gibbs and Webb homes are shown on stage, and those families go about their normal routine. ln the second act the plot thickens. George Gibbs and Emily Webb are in love, This act shows their discovery of love and the problems which confront all young people, The climax is a wedding ceremony during which the basic emotions of life are brought sharply into focus, The final act takes place in the cemetery. The staging is simple and one's entire attention is focused on Emily who, after death, returns to Grover's Corners to revisit some of her childhood haunts. The basic theme of this moving play is the fact that the past cannot be relived, We often rush through life without stopping to realize how good and important small things really are, Mr. Newton, the director, double-cast the parts of Emily and Mrs. Webb.

Nettie Brooks simply couldn't resist the chance to embroider any choice bits of gossip she obtained. Because of this weakness, she found her- self involved in a struggle with Hal Weston, the new young sheriff. When Hal comes to the Brooks home to ask Nettie to please refrain from talking, he meets her daughter, Norma, and immediately falls in love. Homer, Norma's fourteen year old brother, also has love troubles heightened by Betty's neighborhood news- paper. Betty, age fifteen, is a live wire who throws the whole neighborhood into a panic with her publica- tion. The family is rounded out by Granny Brooks who decides she's tired of feeling forty and looking seventy, Carol Kingsley and Julia Parker, the two young TV mystery play writers who live in the apartment on the second floor of the Brooks home, unknowingly provide Betty and her high school clique with a scoop for their first publication of the BABBLER. When they print all the facts about an undiscovered murder, things come to a vortex. In the course of events in this highly amusing play, Betty learns to deal with facts she's sure of, Nettie learns that gossip can be fatal, Hal decides the Brooks home is no suitable place for his beloved, and Granny emerges gloriously as a chic television actress. Homer, -- l. .1 well, unfortunately, Homer didn't learn anything, but he definitely enjoyed his grief when his romance was ruined, The seniors who worked on this play had a marvelous time and felt they had really accomplished something when the returns came rolling in. Mrs. Tatge directed the play.

We'll always remember how we felt when our band marched out on the field, and how, through the cold and mud, they performed so well. We'll long remember the letter girls and ma- jorettes who, though their legs turned blue and their feet went numb, performed with sureness and ability, The absence of the Dieterich students this year places our school in Class "B" for the music contest, This year the band will participate as an organization where as in the past only soloists and ensembles have participated.

Council members are now making plans to send an EHS student to Europe. This project will take a large sum of money, and council members are working toward this goal. The District Student Council convention was held in Effingham this year. Beverly Tilley, a junior, was elected recording secretary with her adequate slogan, "l may be small, but I'm on the ball. " The Student Council meets every Thursday morning in the community room with Mr. Swinger, the sponsor. Lynne Luttrell, president, presides over the meeting. All meetings are opened with the Student Council members repeating the Student Council oath which is: "l, as a chosen representative of my class, promise to represent that class to the best of my abilityg to uphold and further the traditions of Effingham High School, to give my wholehearted support to the constitution of the Student Council and the things for which it stands. I will at all times keep the interests of the school as a whole at heart as well as my class, and I shall not let my selfish desire enter into any decision I make. All in all, I will keep the aims of the school and my class in my mind, and I will do my best to further the interests of Effingham High School, " Many topics such as SOS fSe11 our Servicesj Day, Career Day, Dress Up Day, and the Homecoming Dance are discussed, Glenda Marshall, vice president, gives the list of workers to sell concessions at the next game. Connie Bosley, secretary, takes roll of tvventy-one regular members and all advisory members, She then reads the minutes. Following the minutes, Karen Niccum, treasurer, gives the treasurer's report, Lynne appoints committees and discusses activities.

Deadlines to meet! LIFE Staff members were faced each month this year with assignments. This meant stories to write, and writing stories meant deadlines. Then came the problem of proofreading, The paper was then laid out and finally allowed to go to the printer's. A few days later found the editor, Kathy Zimmermann, and the advisor, Miss Euna Statler, at the printer's to proofread one last time. At last, the big day arrived and the edition came out, Reporters went from one home room to another to sell the paper, Students enjoyed reading about school activities, the latest gossip, their classmates and teachers, and other featured items of interest.

SIGNET The 1957 SIGNET staff aimed to tell the story of the school year in pictures and in copy, to edit a memory book, to build school spirit, and to serve as a link between the school and the community. Often it's just the little things that you remember about a school year, You remember the way a hand touched yours, your own group around your locker, the tense moments of a tied score, the good feeling of achievement when someone said, "Well done. " These are the incidents that you will remember and treasure as well as the big occasions. These are the things that make a year unforgettable, and we have tried to capture these events, Editing a yearbook is not an easy job, lt takes much planning and organization. Trials and tribula- tions are many as the months slip by, Writing and re-writing copy, typing copy, taking and retaking pictures, making layouts, counting and identifying characters, and measuring copy all add up to a big job, But when the deadline has been met, we heave a sigh of relief, All our worries and problems seem to be forgotten, and we only hope that those who read our book will feel as we do--that the 1957 SIGNET is a lasting reminder of our happy high schooldays, and that it is a record of memories we treasure. Members of this year's SIGNET staff are: Kay King, Editor, Don Thomas, Assistant Editor, Donna Stanton, Advertising Manager, David Wernsing, Assistant Advertising Manager, Charles Stevens, Business Manager: Marilyn Strobel, Photographic Editor, Kathy Zimmermann, Assistant Photographic Editor, Judy Lewis, Activities Editor, Bette Neal, Assistant Activities Editor, Richard Wooley, Sports Editor, Paul Tolch, Assistant Sports Editorg Janet Voelker, Layout Editor, Sally Siddens, Art Editor, Emma Lou Edwards, David Steffen, Glenda Broom, Zeanna Robertson, Norma Newkirk, Typists, Mrs. Helen Strobel is the SIGNET advisor.

LITERATI For the past eight years our literary club has had its monthly meetings for the purpose of stimulating students to further reading, to supply enjoyment for readers, to awaken thought on literary subjects, and to supply students with a social life that will give them enjoyment and happiness. The memories of these meetings will long remain with each member. How can anyone forget Tom Kasinger as Lancelot Briggs, or Ginger Leake as Jessie or Kent Mowe as Mr. Engoldsby in "The Trysting Place," Booth Tarkington's little comedy that the juniors presented at the November meeting? It would be hard to forget that Marilyn Strobel won a tight race for president from Don Thomas and Kathy Zimmermann barely defeated Barbara Webb as vice president. Jane Dolbow became secretary, John Austin, treasurerg Caroline Condon, recording secretaryg and Charles Stevens, press reporter. Imme- diately all the officers began fulfilling their duties. Caroline wrote a note of appreciation to Mr, Voyles for his inspiring speech at the September meeting, and wrote another note answering Mrs. Jones' letter of invitation for the Literati to appear on a panel, discussing "Our Own James Hall," before the Vandalia Historical Society in May, 1957. Kathy Zimmermann pasted last year's clippings and photographs in the LITERATI NOTEBOOK and eagerly collected this year's material. John Austin proceeded to "hound" members for the money to be used for the SIGNET pages. Charles Stevens recorded all announcements and reports of meetings and parties. Marilyn Strobel lost no time 'in leading the club's activities.

LITERA Tl The Literati presented a panel discussion over WCRA, the radio station, in October. The topic was "The Value of the Study of Literature in High School," with Miss Burtschi, Marilyn Strobel, Kathy Zimmermann, Donna Stanton, Don Thomas, and Charles Stevens. Jim Slifer was in charge of the November meeting in which the juniors discussed "Elements of Humor in our Twentieth Century Writers. " At the Christmas party, Glenda Marshall and her committee prepared a festive table of Christmas punch and cookies while Sheila Frazier was in charge of "Santa's Reindeer" and "Music Box," traditional Christmas games. Emma Lou Edwards arranged the program with Randall Schormann, Gary Kruger, Karen Niccum, and Jack Bourland presenting Christmas poems. In January, Glenda Marshall called a meeting at her home to arrange the program for January 21. She asked Mr, Clinton Cutright to speak on conservation and Sally Siddens to sing "Trees" by Joyce Kilmer. Larry Lane found some interesting ideas to present from Francis Bacon's essay "On Gardens. " and Stevie Walker found that Henry David Thoreau was a conservationist at heart in his essay "On Walking. Phil Carlock discussed the practices of conservation in dry regions from Bernard de Voto's 'Restoration in the Wasatch, " The officers held a planning session to decide on the program for the remaining months. A patriotic program will be presented in February, French literature honoring Brigitte Gourmel in March, a James Hall program in April, and a potluck picnic in May. To show appreciation for the guidance that Miss Burtschi has given to Literati members, Marilyn Strobel, Literati president, presents Miss Burtschi with a gift at the club's Christmas meeting and party, Members who took part in the evening's program are in the background. They are: Charles Stevens, Glenda Marshall, Barbara Webb, Emma Lou Edwards, Karen Niccum, Randall Schormann, Kathy Zimmermann, Ronald Worstell, Gary Kruger, Jane Dolbow, Jack Bourland, John Austin.

Due to the brevity of their classmate, Sam Rickelman. the home room period, it is used mostly for business meetings and our night meetings are given over to programs, What kind of programs? We see some films, play games, and, at our Christmas meetings, several members took part in a clever skit pertaining to Vergis' Aeneid, Programs are given by each of the classes.

The SIGNET staff did and pro- ceeded to find out, This is what we found, Since the Chamber of Commerce designated Effingham, Illinois, as the Heart of the U,S,A, it was appropriate to call the team "Hearts, " The name "Flaming" was added later in 1935 when the efficient Coach Harpstreit was having a very good season. It was in this year the team received new lettermen's jackets of moss green with a red heart, The team also had a large blanket to cover the bench in like colors and in the center of this blanket was a huge heart with rays shooting from the heart, A newspaper reporter, seeing the design which reminded him of a flaming heart, and with the team being such a good one that year, referred to them as Flaming Hearts. The name caught on and was soon adopted by everyone, 1956 VARSITY FOOTBALL SCORES Effingham Effingham Effingham Effingham Effingham Effingham Effingham Effingham Effingham Vandalia Shelbyville Hillsboro Charleston Paris St, Elmo Newton Flora Casey 'X 5b 9- T X First row: Manager Gerald Van Dyke, Ronnie Brown, Richard Wooley, Frank Davis, Larry Pagel, Bill McCarty Gary Poynter, Norman Dickey, Manager Larry Allen.
