It all began last July when Claudio came, closely followed by a seige of "Welcome-to-Effingham" parties. And then it was fall and time for the first home game. Rightfully, the seniors led the way with a soc-hop afterwards, Before long .it was Homecoming and Queen Kati took her place in the royal procession. Christmas just over the hori- zon came swiftly and E.H.S. celebrated separately and jointly. Va- cation didn't last long, you made your resolutions and then were back in school with a myriad of activities confronting you. Wasn't the Carnival the greatest ever? And with the strong winds and the soft rains predicting spring came a new surge of excitement. The prom was in the offing and you had your last fling of organized frm. You knew that school was not all work, but it also had its lighter side. Special games called for special means of demonstrating enthusiasm and school spirit. Here delighted students thronged in an all-school "walk-out" headed by the cheerleaders and pep band. The team was assured of the loyalty of their best fans as they adjourned to the gym for a rousing pep session. FJ? Many small duties make up the work of a busy day.

A personnel of more than three score cgo-operated in the endless performance of duties that were as evident as the shine of the floors to the enticing aroma of the noon meal. Many precious hours were saved for our of- ficials by the diligence of conscientious helpersg twice daily a half- dozen busses transported over half our student body to and from the high school campus. Board meetings ran into the wee hours of the morning and students were caught up in a flurry of activities inspired by hours of thought and preparation on the part of dedicated teachers and administrators.

Energetic students were challenged and they responded with zeal. Ours was a versatile program - a place for everyone. New talents were uncovered, abilities developed. It is not without pride that we look back on this year, and it is with confidence that we look to the future. 1 ' 'In My ... 2 ' -1 ge 6 i 1' . ws, . , . ,M , w 9 M.

This year it is the pleasure of the SIGNET staff to dedicate this year- book to the people who teach us the ideals of playing the game right. They have shown us that discourage- ment will bring failure but that inspiration brings suc- cess. Their infinite patience, generosity of time in teaching of sportsmanship as well as citizenship de- serve our gratitude and applause. Therefore, E.H.S.

But one thing is sure, the students from the Edgewood route represent the happy spirit that prevails in E.H.S. gluanu fxndlt CHMASSES Over five hundred spirited students working, laughing striving, composed a vigorous and vibrant E.H. S. student body in 1958-59. Students were engaged in goals as varied as the individuals who pursued them. But there were moments when we shed the coat of individuality and briefly were overwhelmed with the consciousness and pride of being Effingham High School.

This picture will recall to the minds of all upperclassmen the difficult day spent in taking the Illinois Aptitude Battery. Each year juniors are examined in order to detect those areas in which the student should best perform. Actors and actresses in the junior class play found that there are many duties involved in giving a play. Selling tickets are the camera shy Freddie Purdy, Roxanne White who played the comical role of a teen-age girl with an uncooperative younger sister who wanted to play football and Dick Dammerman.

Based on the design of life itself, our extracurricular organi- zations carried out many worthwhile programs of activities during the year. For those interested in civic affairs was the Student Council. The art, dramatics and literary organiza- tions were for students with a love of the fine arts. The more practical skills were supplemented in the Industrial Arts, Future Farmers, and Home Economics Clubs. And for almost every interest a club was supplied.
