This is the year we once thought would bring an end to that long struggle for knowledge, but even though it may be hard lor some ol us to admit. we quite often overhear our classmates reveal the tact that they really don't feel as big and important as they had hoped and thought they would. All of us feel more as though we are beginning all over again with many new opinions, ideas, and experiences we have gained through the past four years. Let's look back to the fall of 1947 and the beginnings of our class. Six of us, Peter Tannenberg, Sally Strothman, Andy Shillinglaw, Mari Romeis, Bill McNamara, and Mary Louise Drechsel, began the path that was to be continued by our followers. Friendships that would last a lifetime were already being formed. Then as the next year rolled around a new headmaster. E. P. Droste, came and was to see us through graduation. To ioin our class came his daughter, Adele, and Sarah Iane Ferry. This was only the beginning of the second year, of what seemed such a long tour years. That Iunior year now came into view and we had finally become upper classmen. Entering our group were Claude Chapman, Betsy deForest, Ioan Gourley, Diane Heth, Lewis Iafle, Gail Montgomery, Ion Moulton, Roy Newberg, Barbara Pontius, Charlie Thompson, and Beverly Valentine. Our Iunior year seemed to end before it had a chance to begin, and we were wishing we could do more than just reminisce about the past Homecoming, Aeich Dance and the other fond memories. Along with the arrival of our Senior year, that glorious year, came many new teachers along with more new seniors to compleie our class. The past year brought lack Burgess. Tom Dunker, Lee Karcher. Iean Mensing. Iohn Paschal, and Ierry Sheerin. As Father Time carries us on our way we shall have many wonderful memories of our days at E.A.

Anyone can see from the above list of activities Bill does more than spend all his time studying. He was a star on the football team and always eager to join in any school event.

Fourth row: Brinkman, Izenstark, Collingbourne, Hedrick, D., Alter, Grune- wald, Nemerovski, Lamp., Hedrick I. The Iunior Class has proved a highly successful one with its twenty-four members skilled in widely assorted fields. At the begin- ning of the year, the group elected Don Hedrick, a new student, to the presidency, while Gene Lamp and Natalie Bond assumed the responsi- bilities of vice-president and secretary-treasurer respectively. Two new students joined the class in February, Caral Contay and Paul Marino. The scholastic standards of the class were upheld by Penney Iohnson, Kathy Davis, Gene Lamp, and Barby May, who achieved merit status several times during the year. Representatives of the Iunior Class were prominent in the field of sports at the Academy this year. Kent Grunewald, Don Hedrick, and Gene Lamp were all to be seen romping on the basketball court while Chan Hatcher, Bob Izenstark, and Dave Wright splashed busily in the pool below. The football stalwarts of that famous fall sport were: Kent Grunewald, Don and Iohn Hedrick, Dave Wright, Chan Hatcher, Buddy Nemerovski, and Gene Lamp. The musical talent of the class also ran high. Beth Hetzler and Ioanne McConnell both played the piano well. while Anita Brinkman. Frank Collingboume. Kathy Davis, and Chan Hatcher were all out- standing in voice. The latter three all appeared prominently in "Let's Make An Opera," the opera which was presented by the music de- partment this year. Iack Alter, Kathy Davis, Penney Iohnson, Gene Lamp, Mary Owen, and Barby May showed ability in creative writing and were contribu- tors to the Orange and Black. Barby May was also one of the head cheerleaders, and gave pep to the basketball and football games. One of the familiar sights around the campus was an old ialopy which sometimes wouldn't start. This antique was usually accom- panied by the prodding and hopeful Frank Collingbourne who claimed proud ownership of the relic. After several gentle shoves from Mr. Loomis and Mr. Orr, the Iunior Class advisors, the class put on a well-received and successful Iunior Prom, which was one of the highlights of the school year. The class promises to be an outstanding Senior Class next year and we all wish them good luck. The Sophomores started the year by selecting their class officers Holly Edwards was voted president: and Francis DeSalvo secured the office of secretary-treasurer. Under the guidance of their co-advisors Mr. Stillman and Mr. Paak. the 1953 graduating class marched sturdily forward through the long days and weary hours. During the spring they gave that traditionally famous dance, "The Hobo Hop." lt was a huge success as was evidenced by the many remarks which were made. In scholastic rating the Sophs hold their own and much more From their seventeen members, Barbara Eells, Nancy Freeman, Pat Gaganidze, Ann Rovelstad, Katie Lindsay, Holly Edwards, and Francis DeSalvo have succeeded in attaining the coveted prize, Merit Status consistently. In athletics the '53ers placed Denny Haase, Iohn Perrigo, and Les Igleheart on the football team. In basketball Denny, Francis, Les, Paul Brown, and Don Lenthart were on the Varsity team. Paul and Denny also belong to the golfers who score in the 80's. Pat Gaganidze, Pinky Karle, Marlene Brody, and Sims Crump, who joined us at the semester and is a fabulous diver, represented the sophomores in the swimming pool. During the tennis season Francis, Les, Holly, Nancy, Katie, Bar bara, and Pinky drove and smashed their ways to victory Musical and dramatic talent was in abundance in this versatile class. Holly Edwards and Les Iglehart took part in the opera, "Let's Make An Opera," while Nancy Freeman participated in the play, "A Likely Story." Ann and Barbara were marvelous pianists while Les was a consistent soloist in the tenor division and Pat held up the bass section. Katie and Nancy sang in the ensemble while Holly, Ann, and Pinky were a part of the sextet. It was a wonderful class and one that is capable of considerable future leadership as juniors and seniors of Elgin Academy First row: Eells, Rovelstad. Perrigo, Edwards, H., Haase, Ward Mr. Stillman. Second row: Karle, DeSalvo. Gaganidze, Lenthart Lindsay, Brody, lgleheart, Freeman, Vivian. Third row: Marino, Crump, Brown. The class advisor, Mr. Brett, and the other teachers were kept very busy with the thirteen brilliant, enthusiastic, and athletic freshmen. The freshmen have been well represented throughout the school. Anne Aley, Ann Stuhler, and Bob Klein took part in the operetta, "Let's Make An Opera." Iackie Bamett has been cheerleading and swim- ming at the Academy, and is doing an excellent job. Carolyn Hall was second in the tennis ranking here at school. Dick Moulton and Rex Conrad have been outstanding in football and basketball, along with Paul Mayer who was on the lightweight basketball team. Bill Baur was also a very good player on the football squad. Ken Yoder always seemed to have a joke for every occasion and Rita Rasche always had a pleasant smile for everyone. Bette Iohnson rejoined the freshman class after being out for six weeks. Paul Schriever ioined the class at the second semester. Iackie Barnett, Carolyn Hall, and Bette Iohnson have been at the Academy since seventh grade. Bill Baur joined in eighth grade, and the other students entered this year, but all have entered into life here as freshmen with ease, and have added much to the class. The class president was Iackie Bamett: vice president, Carolyn Hall: secretary-treasurer, Dick Moulton. Merit Status was held by Rex Conrad, Carolyn Hall, Bette Iohnson, Dick Moulton, and Ann Stuhler. Iackie Barnett and Rita Rasche have also received high marks. The ensemble, sextette, and chorus contained most of the freshmen from the class. The freshman dance was a great success and well worth the effort put into it by the whole class. With such an assortment of talent, the class of 1954 can't help but be outstanding at the Academy and wherever they go. The combined seventh and eighth grades grew quite noticeably with most of the twenty-nine students new this year. Gale Edwards is back holding down the job of president of the eighth grade. Gaar Steiner is the able vice-president while the class elected Karen Baker Opposite page, above: First row: Miss Brill, Droste, C., Wein- traub, deMartelly, Hamill, Hill.

In the seventh grade lim Hall handles the office of president while Carl Droste and Ion Hamill help him as vice-president and secretary-treasurer respectively. The scholastic standards of the group are being upheld by Karen Baker, Carl Droste, Gale Edwards, Iim Hall, Ion Hamill, Bonnie Orr, Elinor Ripley, and Gaar Steiner, all of whom have won merit status for at least one six-week period. There is also quite a bit of musical talent displayed by these busy students. Karen Baker, Nancy Butkin, Gale Edwards, Pat Hill, and Marilyn Iacobs all play the piano, while dramatics are being upheld by Carl Droste, Peter Heth, Ed Martens, and Gaar Steiner who ap- peared in the opera, "Let's Make An Opera," put on at the Academy this year. The novel talent of yodeljng is exercised by Bonnie Orr and Sue Dow. Ed Martens is known for his ability at the violin. The eighth grade is ably assisted in its activities by Mr. Anderson and Miss Brill, while Coach Orsbom and Mrs. Anderson are the class advisors of the seventh grade. HG The youngest Hilltoppers receive their education in the nursery school, kindergarten, and the elementary school of the Academy. The nursery school and kindergarten, founded four years ago, met in the first floor of Lovell Hall and had a total of sixty-one aspiring pupils. The children ranged in age and ability. One group met in the mom- ings, while the more advanced group met in the aftemoons. The purpose of these two schools for younger children is to pre- pare and condition them for further education. The students leam to get along with other children, they leam to share, and they also leam to do many things with their hands and minds. They are then well prepared for their next step in the process of education. The elementary school at the Academy has enjoyed its second year at Raymond House on Academy Campus. There were twenty- nine children, in grades from one to six, and two teachers, Mrs. Owen and Mrs. Schuler. The children arrived in station wagons soon alter 8:30 o'clock and stayed until 3:30. They joined the upper school chil- dren for their lunch, following which the primary children had a mid- day rest. The academic program is planned to give each child individual instruction in the tool subjects, in harmony with the best educational thinking of the day. Each child is helped to develop according to his own ability and interests. The Iunior Student Council, with Charles Sansone as president and Tory Estes as secretary, has been an active means toward character development, as the children consider prob- lems of self-discipline and the rights of others. The children in the lower school enjoyed the many facilities in art and music that the older students did. They have modeled in clay and had their finished products fired an glazed. They have engaged in creative and interpretative drawings to music under the guidance of Mr. Chipman. They have also enjoyed the many exhibits in the Art Gallery. The many opportunities for joy in their musical develop- ment have been a part ot each child's daily experience. At Christmas time the group gave "Why the Chimes Rang," in a touching and beautiful program. The highlight of each week was the swimming lesson with Coach Orsbom on Friday. All the children participated and were divided into three groups: beginners, intermediate, and advanced. The older boys enjoyed the teamwork of basketball and spring baseball. All in all, the children of the nursery school, the kindergarten and the elementary school enjoyed a tull, constructive and happy life this year and have made a real place for themselves at the Elgin Academy.

Some of these cannot be held by words and pictures, but the most important happenings have been collected and make up the yearbook, the 1951 Hilltop. The weekly activities were recorded in the school newspaper, the Orange and Black. A staff of students work together to bring the remembrances of the year back in review. This year the Hilltop production was ably headed by Sally Strothman as editor. She was assisted by Marilu Romeis who did a great deal to bring this book to its public. The book itself has a far-reaching audience, ranging from present students and faculty for whom it recaptures the treasured events of the immediate year, to alumni for whom the Hilltop recalls past years and happy experiences. It also serves as a personalized report to parents on the activities of the school as a whole. One section to which readers often tum is the sports section. This year the teams and athletic events in which the Academy participated were thoroughly reported by Pete Tannenberg and Andy Shillinglaw. Another of the jobs which is usually accompanied by little glory is that of the business managers. This year the business matters were capably handled by Lewis Iaffe and Andy Shillinglaw. who worked throughout the year, straightening out problems which sometimes arose. The credit for the cover design goes to Gene Lamp, while Ioanne McConnell, Penney Iohnson, Kathy Davis. Carolyn Hall, Holly Edwards, and Ierry Sheerin all contributed greatly to the literary end of the production. Beverly Valentine was art editor and the efforts of her art staff can be seen throughout the book. The greatest measure of thanks belongs to Mr. Chipman, who as supervisor of the Hilltop, worked constantly with his student staff on producing a full and successful year book. The Orange and Black, our school newspaper. distributed about two thousand four page papers every two weeks. These "Orange and Blacks" were sent to the ever-growing list of alumni, parents. friends and, last but not least, distributed to the student body of Elgin Academy. The staff was headed by Betsy deForest as Editor-in-Chief. The front page editor was Adele Droste while Peter Tannenberg was sports editor. The business end was handled by Penney Iohnson, and Mrs. Anderson was the faculty advisor who advised the students on each publication. Also tobe remembered are the busy reporters who wrote the content of the paper in a frenzy of assignments every other week. The feature articles formed an important part of the paper and were written by several of the students. The sports news was written by Pete Tannenberg in "The Locker Room" and Barbara May in "The Powder Room." Marilu Romeis kept track of the goings-on in the art gallery, as she faithfully wrote the "Gallery Views." We heard from the younger students who attended school in Raymond House through "Little Hilltoppers Speak." The other hard working reporters who wrote for the newspaper were: Sarah lane Ferry. Holly Edwards, Ann Rovelstad, Ioan Gourley, lack Alter, Gene Lamp, Sally Strothman, Don Hedrick. Andy Shilling- law. Gail Montgomery, lean Mensing, Ion Moulton, Ann Stuhler, and Diane Heth. It was evident that the co-operation and skill exercised by the staff and editors deserve the thanks and congratulations of the school.

It a boy or girl was president of two organizations the vice-president ol the club was appointed. The mem- bers of the Student Council were: Pete Tannenberg, president of the Boys' Dorm Council: Sarah lane Ferry, president of the Girls' Dorm Council: Gail Montgomery, vice-president of the Senior Class: Don Hedrick, president ol the Iunior Class: Holly Edwards, president of the Sophomore Class: Iackie Barnett, president ol the Freshmen Class: Gail Edwards, president of the Eighth Grade: lim Hall, president ot the Sev- enth Grade: Betsy deForest, president of the Aeichlorian Society: Andy Shillinglaw, president of the Maior "E" Club: Ion Moulton. vice-presi- dent of the Black Club: Kent Grunewald, vice-president of the Orange Club. The Council itsell chose for its president Andy Shillinglaw with Pete Tannenberg as vice-president and Betsy deForest secretary- treasurer. The Student Council's job was to consider all the constructive complaints and suggestions and act on them for the increased happi- ness of the students and the betterment of the school. This year the Student Council sponsored a Polio Fund, a Christmas Fund, and a Red Cross Drive. It led a cleanup campaign, and joined with the other High Schools of Elgin to attend a dance in St. Edwards High School Gym lor Iunior Red Cross members. Formed from the ranks ol the students who show the best sense of positive leadership. the Boy's and Girl's Dorm Councils played an important role in the life of the Elgin Academy. Each Monday night the Girl's Dorm Council met to consider the conduct reports of the last week, decide if punishment was necessary, and offer advice where it was needed. Some of the additional duties of the members of the Girl's Dorm Council are as follows: They aid in room inspection each moming before school. they supervise the study halls at night from 7:30 to 9:30, and most of all they are expected to maintain the standards they have set up and set a good example to other students. The Boy's Dorm Council also met on Monday evening and decided what action should be taken toward the various misdemeanors per- formed during the previous week.

How- ever. after the close of the football season there were inducted into the Major "E" Club fifteen new members. They were Iaclc Burgess, Claude Chapman. Frank Donaldson, Kent Grunewald, Dennis Haase, Chan Hatcher, Don Hedrick, Leslie "Red" Iglehart, Eugene Lamp, Bill Mc- Namara, "Buddy" Nemerovski, Iohn Paschal. john Perrigo, Ierry Sheerin, and Charlie Thompson. The officers of the Major "E" Club for the year were: Andy Shil- linglaw, president: Peter Tannenberg, vice-president: Ion Moulton. secretary-treasurer. The organization of this club is for all boys who have successfully won a Major "E" in any varsity sport during the school year. The faculty advisor for the club was Mr. Orsborn.

Betsy DeForest was nominated to be president, Gene Lamp was vice-president, Adele Droste became the secretary, and Ann Rovelstad was the treasurer. Miss Brill was the club's advisor. The club held its meetings in the art gallery every third Friday of the month. The membership of the club this year was sixty, the largest since it began. The first big event was the Halloween Party held in the "rec" room of Sears Hall, October 28. Every member came dressed as a character out of musical history. The boy dressed as William Tell was judged as the most unique costume. Prizes were awarded for the best costumes. There was a fortune teller who put "a light in the future" for many that were present. The party came to a close with refresh- ments, cider and doughnuts. The color scheme was brought out with Halloween colors. On November 12 thirty-eight members went to see "Carmen" at the Civic Opera House in Chicago. Before they attended the opera Miss Brill told the story and illustrated her talk with music of the opera so that they would have a better understanding of the performance. The club has saved enough money to subscribe to the "Opera News" and has purchased several albums of records including "The Classical Symphony by Prokofieff, and the "Surprise Symphony" by Haydn. Rovelstad, Edwards, G., Lamp, Droste, A., deForest, Newberg. The student musical group met every day during the seventh period throughout the year. In the fall the chorus prepared their annual Christmas program and presented the annual performance of opera. During the second semester, an ensemble was chosen from the chorus group and prepared music for the annual spring concert on April 27, commencement music, and the yearly appearance at the Rotary Club. At the first of the year the Ensemble was directed by Mr. Kratky, but at the end of the first semester the direction was ably taken over by Mrs. Silliman. The accompanist for the group was Miss Constance Kroeger. Some of the many songs they perfected were: "Deep River," "Early One Moming," "The Spinning Song," "Love Lies Over the Hil1s," "A Blossom Falls," "Vanka Tanka," "Ifca's Castle," "The Lord is a Mighty God," and "The Navy Hymn." With happy memories of the Christmas Concert, "Let's Make An Opera," and melodies of Ierome Kem's "Show Boat" still in our minds, the student body should really applaud the wonderful work done by the Ensemble, Mr. Kratky, Mrs. Silliman, and Miss Kroeger.

The first mid-western performances of the Benjamin Britten-Eric Crozier musical play "Let's Make An Opera" were presented at the art gallery theatre on three occasions prior to the Christmas holidays. It was an unusual dramatic production that the students of the Elgin Academy presented under Frank Kratky, musical director, and C. Dean Chipman, dramatics director. Rehearsals for the musical work were held over a period of eight weeks and with the generous assistance of many faculty members and parents the performances were enthusi- astically received and applauded. The performances were presented PER N KE LET'S on Tuesday, December 5 for the Elgin Woman's Club and on Friday and Saturday, December 8 and 9 for the students, parents, and friends of the school. The story of the chimney sweep and his experiences at Iken Hall, Suffolk, England, made a very appealing though pathetic subject for an opera. With a simply designed set for the opera and a cast of capable actors and singers the opera was presented with imagination and humor in its dialogue, songs, and dances. The cast was divided into two sections, first the play and second the opera. In the first act the characters plan their opera, collect the proper- ties, and rehearse the music. The cast was as follows: Gladys Parworthy ----- Kathy Davis Norman Chaffinch - Peter Tannenberg Max Westleton - - Leslie Iglehart Pamela Wilton - - Adele Droste Anne Dougall - - Anne Aley Gail Montgomery Bruce - - - Edward Martens Monica - Ann Stuhler Peter - - Peter Heth Mavis - Holly Edwards Ralph - - - - Carl Droste Iohn -------- Gaar Steiner The dress rehearsal and the performance of the opera, "The Little Sweep," was presented in the second act and the cast was as follows: Miss Baggott, the housekeeper - - Kathy Davis Black Bob, the sweepmaster - - Peter Tannenberg Tom, the coachman - - - Charles Hatcher Clem, Black Bob's assistant - Frank Collingboume Rowan, the nursery maid - - Adele Droste Iuliet Brook ---- - - Anne Aley Gail Montgomery Alfred - - - Robert Klein Gay Brook - - Edward Martens Sophie Brook - Ann Stuhler Iohn Crome - - Peter Heth Tina Crome - - - - Holly Edwards Hugh Crome ------ Carl Droste Sam, the new sweepboy ---- Gaar Steiner Stage Assistants: Beverly Anne Valentine, Claude Chapman, David Wright, Lewis Iaffe. The accompanist for the musical portions of the performance was Constance Kroeger, piano instructor in the Elgin Academy Conserva- tory. The cover design for the program was designed by Shirley Karle. The music and art departments are to be congratulated for the selection of a new and modem musical work for one of its productions by one of England's foremost living composers. 1 Q 5 .,.L if ,-,4 x tt.: .'

On this weekend alumni are invited to retum and watch one of our more important games. enjoy the Homecoming Tea. and attend the dance on Saturday night. As the music of lack Stewart's orchestra filled the Art Gallery. the couples danced among glittering snowflakes nestled in boughs of evergreens. The Octagon was decorated with a painted tree on which sparkling stars were hung to cast shadows on the ceiling. During the intermission constant compliments were heard about the wonderful punch and delicious cookies which were served by the chaperones. The student committee was made up of Marilu Rorneis and Betsy deForest. The coats and hats were checked by the "E" club members before the dance in order to raise money for their own dance. Gene Lamp and Andy Shillinglaw were in charge of this project. The decoration committee consisted of Beverly Valentine. chairman, with Adele Droste. Sarah lane Ferry. Gail Montgomery. and Ioan Gourley as her assistants. The Homecoming Dance climaxed a wonderful weekend on which seniors were greatly commended. The bon-fire and pep session Friday were the beginning and we can thank Ion Moulton and all the boys for that mountainous heap of inflammable objects better known as the bon-fire. Though we lost our football game, the team fought hard and did not go down easily. The tea after the game was given by the Aeichlorian Society and both the students and the alumni declared it a success. And that night, the dance, with its flowers and programs and tunes "just for us"-a happy memory we will cherish forever. Highlighting the Homecoming Dance was the announcement of the Homecoming Queen Miss Sarah lane Ferry, and her attendants Misses Sally Strothman and Adele Droste. These honors were well deserved and bestowed upon them by the popular vote of the student body. Q Q-9 Sara lane Ferry is crowned queen of the Homecoming annual formal dance by the president of the senior class. Peter Tannen- berg. Miss Ferry's attendants were Sally Strothman, right, and Adele Droste. left. Andrew Shillinglaw. president of the Student Council, assisted with the crowning of the queen. Ianuary 4 of this winter was marked by one of the most memora- ble dances of the year, the "E" Dance. While music by the "Sophisti- cates" of Elmhurst afforded a background of melody. the dining room of Sear's Hall was filled with happy couples dancing until the witching hour of twelve o'clock. Eugene Lamp was in charge of the decorations for the dance and should be praised for his work. Multicolored "Es" were draped from the ceiling with chartreuse ropes. A huge "E" was stretched between the dining room doors and was framed by interlacing ropes. The punch and cookies were brought to us by Pete Tannenberg whose committee was: Ion Moulton and lohn Hedrick. All this and more too? Yes! After the dancing had continued for about half of the evening the music was halted and an announcement was made tht we were to be entertained with a floorshow. It was to be put on by the new "E" Club members as part of their initiation. The lights were tumed up and there before us was Leslie "Enrico Caruso" Iglehart who favored us with a few bits of song. He was aided and abetted by Denny Haase and Iohn Perrigo. Next came a skit with Chan Hatcher as Mr. Alderfer and Don Hedrick as Mr. Droste. The skit took place one hundred years hence and the boys settled many serious problems such as: whether the students should go on another trip to Mars as they did the year before: and whether the school should place television in each of the dorm rooms. Both plans were immediately approved. Mr. Droste and Mr. Alderfer also concluded that the gym was "still" good enough to last for some time. Lastly Claude Chapman and Ierry Sheerin gave a typical meal at a very familiar type of restaurant. It began as Claude sauntered in, doffed two hats. and peeled off two coats and a sweater. Wondering what was to come next, he satisfied our curiosity by sitting down. Ierry proceeded to stride from the kitchen, posing as a waiter, thus commencing a violent battle of wits between Claude and his waiter in which the waiter was victorious and Claude still hungry. Everyone had to agree that the "E" Dance was one of the most enioyable of the year. f El lt El VCI DN El s R AN DANCE AE CHL Sugar and splce and everythmg mce was the tune that seemed to be iloatmg around Sears Hall about 8 45 on the evermg ol Feb ruary 10 The pres1dent of the Aelchs Betsy deForest and her date were there to greet all the couples as they moved down the recep hon l1ne The grand march was soon under way to the mus1c of the Sophlstlcates As you looked around you could see the work of the decoratlon commlttee ably headed by Adele Droste The gmger bread house 11' the center of the floor was covered w1th candres of all shapes and forms Cup cakes were placed H1 borders on the house and the peppermmt stlcks that were supportxng 1t looked good enough to eat Behmd the band stnps of colored crepe paper and pmk trees made a background for the dance The color scheme of p1nk brown and Whlle was carrled out 1n the refreshments as well as 1n the deco rat1ons One of the prlvate dmxng rooms was set aslde for the serving of refreshments whlch were provmded by Sally Strothman and her competent comm1ttee An archway set oli by str1ps of colored crepe paper made an attractlve settmg for the table w1th 1ts punch bowls The Malor E Dance commlttee w1th the1r dates Lamp deForest Droste A Shlllmglaw Ferry Tannenberg at elther end Mmts of brown and p1nk and assorted cookles centered the table The Ae1Ch darce was made a bxg success w1th the a1d of the followmg people Gall Montgomery Adele Droste Natahe Bond Amta Brmkman Penney Iohnson Sally Strothman lean Mensmg I-'arlene Slpp Kathy Dav1s Mary Louxse Drechsel Manlu Romexs Lee Karcher Vallle Valentme Barb May Betsy deForest and Ioan Gourley The darce was over all too soon was the comment heard as the couples were leavmg Sears Hall It was an outstandmg and memorable evenmg Exams were over and the stram of school work was forgotten Our mmds turned lmmedlately to the more cheery Slde of l1fe whlch was upon us the Iumor Prom Many of the tumors had been seen buslly dashlng ln and out of the art gallery workmg on the decoratlons for the gala affalr whlch was held Frlday evenmg Iune 8 Not only the yumors were busy the whole school was on 1ts toes 1n makxng preparat1ons for graduatlon and the prom T1red but happy, after spendmg the afternoon at the school p1cn1c at Trout Park, the students entered the art gallery completely trans formed 1n the1r newest formal clothes.

In it was a record of all the girl's dances and. in addition, the names of the chaperones of the evening and the students who were on the prom committee. Gene Lamp and his decoration committee showed great ingenuity in the striking effects they created in adoming the art gallery. The refreshments were delicious.

FOOTBALL The opener of the 1950 football season saw the Hilltoppers travel- ing to Lake Forest Academy to encounter their "B" team. Last year the Hilltoppers won from them by a score of 13-12. But this year Lake Forest was more determined and it showed in the final score which was 17-13. Hilltoppers drew first blood when Kent Grunewald inter- cepted a Lake Forest pass and went 40 yards to pay dirt. The try for the conversion failed. By the time the half ended the Lake Forest team had scored twice, making the score 13 to 6 at half time. The Hill- toppers early in the third quarter opened up an aerial barrage which paid off when Andy Shillinglaw threw a pass to Ion Moulton who caught the ball and then went the distance for the score. Two saieties accounted for Lake Forest's other points. Thus the Foresters came out on top by a score of 17-13. In the second game the Hilltoppers fell before the strong team of Harvard of Chicago by a score of 20-0. The following week we en- countered Glenwood from whom we had suffered defeats in the past two years. The Elgin team was determined. thus scoring first when "Ram" Donaldson went over from the three yard line climaxing a 65 yard drive. Elgin led at half time. but early in the second half Glen- wood tied the score up at 6-6. Both teams fought to get the ball across the goal line, but neither team was going to give. A major threat of Glenwood's was stopped when Shillinglaw tackled a Glenwood boy on the 10 and then the forward wall of Elgin consisting of Moulton, Burgess, Sherrin, Hatcher, Wright. Haase, and D. Hedrick halted the Glenwood team to only six yards. The game thus ended in a 6-6 tie. The next week the Hilltoppers traveled to Todd School and won a hard fought battle by a score of 7-6. Todd scored first late in the first quarter and held that lead for the remainder of the half. The Elgin team came out determined in the second half and within three plays Grunewald caught a pass from Shillinglaw and ran for the goal. Don Hedrick converted for the extra point which was good. Thus the game ended with the Hilltoppers winning by a score of 7-6. Front row, lett to right: Newberg. Hedrick, I., McNamara, lglehart, Shillinglaw, Perrigo, Hatcher, Thompson. Haase.

The game was hard fought and the Academy scored on a 50 yard run back of a punt by Shillinglaw and a pass from Shillinglaw to Moulton. But the St. Willibrord team was not to be denied: they kept scoring along with the Hilltoppers and also scored a safety which decided the game for St. Willibrord by a score of 14 to 12. The next week the Elgin Hilltoppers were playing their homecom- ing game against Northwestem M.ilitary Academy. We came out on the short end of a hard fought game by a score of 6-0. The running attack of Elgin was sparked by "Ram" Donaldson who frequently broke away for gains of 15 to 20 yards. The Hilltoppers scored when Shillinglaw ran B0 yards on an end sweep but it was nullified by an off-side penalty. Northwestem's score came in the last part of the game when they worked a spread formation. The game was a great one for both teams and the Hilltoppers really did a great iob. The last game ol the season we traveled to North Shore Country where we fell before a strong and well organized team by a score of 26-0. The team had a good season and it should be credited to the able coaching of Mr. Anderson and Mr. Gould. They both did a wonderful job and the boys were glad to work with such wonderful coaches.

HD 33 El'l2l GV 3 SEI The art department of the Elgin Academy is privileged once again to present an illustrated section of the yearbook showing many of the creative projects that have been offered to the students throughout the school year. Carl E. Paak was the instructor. This year several pages of original silk screen designs and linoleum block prints are being included in the book. On the opposite, page is a design for the program cover for the musical play, "Let's Make An Opera," by Benjamin Britten. The design shows an outline of an English house with its characteristic chimney pots, and the important players ir1 the opera, the housekeeper and the chimney sweeper. The design was made by Shirley Karle in silk screen. The next page contains another program cover used for the two one act plays and opera which were presented in March. The abstract design includes important items in each of the productions, namely, thirty pieces of money in "Dust oi the Road," a dial telephone in the Gian-Carlo Menotti comedy opera. and the large outline of an envelope in "A Likely Story." This design, another proiect in silk screen. was created by Caral Contay. Bonnie Orr and Peter Heth, two art students from the eighth grade, are represented with block print designs. A competition was held in the art class and these two original designs were chosen to be included in the book. The four designs are typical oi the creative art program that is offered Elgin Academy students. Q In the column at the left are photographic illustrations of the posts in the gallery classrooms. Four students designed the decorations and painted them. At the top is "Iitterbug" by lane Eddy. "Ballet" by Shirley Karle, "The Minuet" by Beverly Valentine, and "Square Dance" by Eugene Lamp. -my ,,f,.-q .f - ,,,, "r "4 'xc ,-1 -'.. . 43.115 ' .-' vw-'J . 1 4-few, . , -ff- -.1 . fe, ,J 1.-Q -,-.inn-.1 -.- , .-,. m.,,,,.i,., 3 -.- A 1 ' ,.

A Grain of Sand This. a grain of sand, so real and warm, yet brother to infinity, This the sun, so bright and sure. yet few know the wonders of your ways. This is love: real and warm, yet brother to infinity. This is love: bright and sure, yet few know the wonder of your ways. Penney Iohnson '52 Death My life is disillusionment: Bleak and full of grief: Sad and cold. Strife and death Come creeping unexpectedly on. I am sick and tired. I am hungry and lost and ill. I am weary-oh so very weary, And the clouds get blacker. Alone and friendless am I: Alone-and in a room of complete stillness. I am slowly sinking into a sea of mist And echos. The cloud has reached its summit, My mind goes blank.

already low sprnts of a small band of peons who were stolrdly ploddrng down the road toward the abobe mrssron Therr heads were bowed therr feet slow As they entered the church Rodrrgo the leader dropped a corn rn a box and lrghted a candle Srlently they knelt and prayed all wrth the same thought and hope that Pedro the small and brave one mrght be saved It had been just two weeks srnce Pedro had been run down by Iuan the Bandrt of the Red Cloak And for these two long weeks the boy had been rn the Hosprtal of the Whrte Flower frghtrng valrantly for hrs lrfe The bandrt Iuan had terrorrzed the whole valley for several months and no one had had the courage to stop hrm Every mornmg the poor peons had feared to irnd a house ransacked or a herd of sheep mrssrng Iuan had but two known characterrstrcs He always rode a snow whrte steed and wore a scarlet cloak As was the case wrth most bandrts he always struck at nrght or rn the early dawn He once had been seen ndmg through a near bv forest rn the twllrght but no one had ever dared follow hrm Don Carlos the Spanrsh land owner for whom the peons worked had offered a hrgh reward for the capture of Iuan One nrght when the moon was almost full the red cloaked bandrt had attacked Rodrrgos small flock Pedro Rodrrgos only son had been watchrng the sheep as unusual when Iuan had charged from the forest In a valrant attempt to save the sheep Pedro had thrown hrs own frarl body between the flock and the onrushrng bandrt In the mornmg when the peons had come to the pasture to look for hrm they had found the boy trampled down and the sheep gone Only hrs farthful lrttle dog was there keeprng watch over hrs prostrate form Thrs accrdent had forced the mens decrsron for all of them dearly loved courageous Pedro All that they had really lacked before was the rncentrve to capture Iuan As soon as they had taken the boy to the hosprtal they agreed upon a plan They would all work together to rrd the valley of Iuan forever The perfect nrght for the plot had soon appeared Three of the smaller flocks of sheep had been moved rnto the upper meadow and as the bandrt had not attacked for some trme he was expected that mght The men had all mounted therr swrftest horses and had rrdden to the upper meadow The moon was just commg over the nerghbonng Srerra Madre mountams as they arrrved and hrd themselves rn the underbrush surround mg the pasture The sheep had been grazrng peacefully but the scene was tense Suddenly a whrte horse had galloped through the thrcket and had begun to herd the now frrghtened sheep together The rrder was the surprrsed bandrt He had reached for hrs guns but a lasso had settled over hrs shoulders and held hrm trghtly The rrde home had been a srlent one Each had been thrnkrng not only of the successful capture but also of lrttle Pedro rn the hosprtal The peons had turned the defeated Bandit of the Red Cloak over to Don Carlos who had been surprrsed but thankful that the bandrt had been frnally apprehended The reward had been forgotten for the moment as the trred peons returned to therr homes Now all these humble peopl were prayrng for lrttle Pedro The doctor had told them that the boy had a frghtmg chance and that rf all went well he would recover As the peons solemnly frled out of the small mrssron each gave a last srlent prayer for the courageous boy When they were all outsrde the church agarn they headed toward the Hosprtal of the Whrte Flower to vrsrt Pedro As they entered hrs strll room the doctors came toward them wrth happy smrles upon therr faces Suddenly the tensron was broken as all present realrzed that lrttle Pedro was gorng to be all nght Rodrigo went to hrs sons bedsrde and relorced to see a clear unfevered brow for the first time srnce the accrdent They left the room quretly so as not to drsturb the peaceful sleep of Pedro When the happy group returned to the ranch Don Carlos was wartrng for them He announced to the parents that therr reward was to be the ownerslup of the land whrch they had for so many years He added that the beautrful whrte steed of the captured bandrt was to be grven to Pedro when he had fully recovered The peons rarsed therr yoyful vorces wrth one accord They greatly apprecrated therr freedom but they vowed they would serve both therr benefactor and therr God untrl the end of therr lrves Kathy Davrs 52 Never Free'
