The class really started developing in 1950, when Rex Conrad and Bob Klein entered the portals of Old Main, followed by Paul Schrie- ver in the second semester. The fall of 1951 brought in two more members, Gordon Barber and Abby Zook. However, this year's graduating class doubled in 1952 when Chuck Blomberg, Tom Greer, Evelyn Iohn- son, Sara Mitchell, Tom Tarbox, and Dick Winslow came. When the Academy opened its doors this past fall, these veterans found that they had five newcomers waiting to join them as part of the class of '54. Thus Ben Chung, lack Dunn, Toby Foreman, George Giaras, and Marcia Hoelscher became part of the class. Not to be forgotten was Carl Schott, who came in the fall of '54 also, as a post-graduate. No matter how long they had been here, the seniors found this year to be their busiest and best. They probably will never forget the fun of Homecoming, even though it was their last, and the day of Senior holiday, to mention only a few. Think they will ever forget the festivities that were given in their honor, such as the Iunior Prom, the Head- master's Supper, and the Baccalaureate Service? Even if they do forget these things. Elgin Academy won't forget them, and will always welcome them back. The seniors, as well as everyone else con- nected with this school, are truly grateful to the Mothers' Club of the Elgin Academy for their generous contribution to the Hilltop. This gift enabled the staff to purchase cr vellum cover and thus produce a more at- tractive and durable annual. The Mothers' Club, not only for this gift but for the many others as well, will never be forgotten. The seniors especially would like to again thank this extremely active and useful club for its instant and full support of the cause. First row: Schriever, Foreman, Hoelscher, C. Hall, Mitchell, Zook, Giaras, and Winslow. Second row: Greer. Conrad, Barber, Schott, Klein, Tarbox, Chung, Dunn, and Blomberg. Absent: E. Iohnson.

This group has evidenced its ability and willingness to work through the fact that the Iunior Prom was financed as early as Febru- ary. This was accomplished by selling coffee and popcorn at the Homecoming game, and Yuletide ornaments at the Christmas pro- gram. It seems this year that the girls have equalled the boys in the field of sports. Elinor Ripley, Gale Edwards, Pat Faust, and Donna Dickey excelled in tennis, while Ev- elyn Dobbert became a participant in the E. A. swimming meets. The fellows, how- ever, must not be overlooked, for Dick Ganz- horn, Bruce Armstrong, Henry and Peter Becker, Phil Pemberton, and Cliff Miller cer- tainly did a fine job on the basketball floor, and Iohn Owen, Dave Hessler, and Eddie Glashagel were invaluable on the swimming team. Bruce Millar could be seen training vigorously for track meets on campus daily in the spring. Pat Faust. Chris Hombrook, and Evelyn Dobbert encouraged school spirit as cheerleaders. Donna Dickey, Evelyn Dobbert, Chris Horn- brook, and Ruth Lesserman all showed their artistic inclinations through fine work on posters, decoration committees, and making costumes. Other Iuniors were prominent in the field of the arts, too. Kathy Sargeant was a soloist in the operetta "The Lowland Sea", while journalistically speaking, Iudy Hew- son became assistant editor of the Orange and Black: Evelyn Dobbert, Marilyn Iacobs, Gale Edwards, Donna Dickey, and Elinor Ripley were contributors to the newspaper. Merit Status was a goal easily achieved by many in the class. Marilyn Iacobs, Elinor Ripley, Donna Dickey, Pat Faust, Gale Ed- wards, Gerry Hall, Iudy Hewson, and Bonnie Laird all reached this honor consistently. With its diversified talents and diligence, these students will undoubtedly be remem- bered as one of the finest Iunior Classes for years to come. SA? .SJOPAOHQOFQ CALM I The sophomore class of the Elgin Acad- emy was an exceptional example of cooper- ation and enthusiasm. Although there were a mere seventeen members. each individual worked to his fullest capacities in this year's social and athletic events, contributing val- uable ideas and willing hands. The class officers. Peggy Livingston, as president: Iim Hall, vice-president: Ioyce Martin, treasurer: and Bob Baur, secretary, were selected at the beginning of school, in September. Coupled with a new addition later in the year, Donnis McClintock, the group proved highly successful in all en- deavors. This class can claim priority on our swim- ming team. for Dennis McNeill, Iim Hall, Doug Wainscott, and Carl Droste fumished the backbone of the team, and all showed fine spirit as well as proficiency. Dan Cic- manec, Gordon Uzelac. Paul King, Michael Kennedy. and Bill Baur possessed a decided preference for basketball. However, they maintained the athletic standards set by other members of their class. Donnis Mc- Clintock, Peggy Livingston, Pat Hill, and Kay Suddeth shared in girl's basketball, alternat- ing with table tennis. and demonstrated ad- mirable adeptness in both sports. Merit Status. that coveted scholastic goal. was procurred by Iim Hall, Dennis McNeill, Carl Droste, and Peggy Livingston continu- ally by their excellent grades. Other sopho- mores achieved par and better than average marks. "The Reindeer Prance" sponsored by this class provided entertainment and a thor- oughly enioyable evening to the students of E.A. This Christmas dance exhibited a num- ber of extremely unusual decorations. which were the source of innumerable favorable comments. Wherever there was a gathering for any occasion, one would be sure to see Paul King and his ever present flash camera. Many of us are grateful to him for perma- nently recording memorable incidents of our activities on film. This Sophomore Class will be the hun- dredth class to graduate from the Academy portals. Undoubtedly, they will be commen- surate with the honor. First row: Cicmcmec, Iacobsen. Suddeth, Hill, Martin, Livingston. and W. Baur. Second row: Hamann, Wain- scott, Uzelac. I. Hall, Droste. M.

The student council was composed of the presidents of all the classes and representa- tives ot the Orange Club, Black Club, Major E Club, Aeichlorian Society, Sears Hall, Lovell Dorm, and North Dorm. These 13 representatives met with Mr. Droste and Mr. Brett and discussed many of the problems that arose daily. Many of the changes that took place were the result of such meetings, such as the lengthening of lunch hour, crowning the King and Queen at the Homecoming game, and revisions con- ceming smoking permission for seniors. At the tirst meeting, it was decided that it was only necessary to have one office, that oi secretary. Therefore, Ianice Eichhom was elected secretary ol Student Council. This year's council did a fine iob and achieved its primary purpose: to narrow the gap between the students and the adminis- tration. I The Dormitory Councils are organized each year with the purpose of assisting the housemothers and dorm masters with their various duties. These groups keep the dorms running smoothly and things on an even keel. Each of the dorms was organized sep- arately with its own president. Heading the Lovell Hall council was Abby Zook, presid- ing over Sears Hall was Bob Klein, while Phyllis Rogers had charge of the North Dorm. I On November twenty-first, the members of the Musart Club launched their first trip into Chicago. They had their choice of two places to go, with Mr. Chipman and Miss Kroeger chaperoning the groups. Most of them saw two operas at the Chicago Civic Opera House, while the others attended a symphony concert at Orchestra Hall. On the afternoon of December seven- teenth, the Telephone Company showed the club and other students movies pertaining to the Christmas season. In the month of Ianuary, the club showed pictures in assembly. "Iefferson, the Archi- tect" and "Design To Music" were two of the movies shovsm. The last, and perhaps the most interesting and unique, was entitled "Begone, Dull Care" and featured dashing color flashes and music of an exotic nature. The last trip was taken on April tenth, when the members attended the comedy, "Time Out For Ginger," with Melvin Douglas. On Friday, April ninth, Dr. Leland Brubaker gave an interesting talk on his travels and lfL:iCll"t the art objects he has collected. A small exhibit of contemporary painting was ar- ranged for the occasion by Bob Klein and Mr. Chipman. The group presented a paint- ing by Margo Hoff and an enamel kiln for the art gallery. The officers of this club were: Bob Klein, president: Carolyn Hall, vice-president: Gor- don Barber, secretary, and Gale Edwards, treasurer. Pat Faust was publicity manager, while Donna Dickey and Chuck Blomberg were members-at-large. I Heading the "Orange and Black" this year was Sara Mitchell, who proved to be an able and conscientious editor. Not only did she do a marvelous job in assigning and proof reading articles, but found time to write interesting editorials as well. Rex Con- rad proved to be a great help to Sara in the athletic department, where he was known as the Sports Editor. Holding the position of News Editor, Carl Schott, along with Abby Zook, the Feature Editor, helped ease Sara's burden and did much to make the paper a success. Paul Schriever's position as Busi- ness Manager of "The Orange and Black", enabled him to be on the Board of Publica- tions. In this capacity, Paul not only solicited for "The Orange and Black" but the "Hilltop" First row: Miss Kroeger, Dickey, C. Hall, Faust, and G. Edwards. Second row: Blomberg, Klein, Barber, and Mr. Chipman. Cllfl First row: Zook, Mitchell, Mrs. Droste, and Faust. Second row: Schott, Tarbox, Lesemian. and Conrad. Absent: Schriever. as well. Last, but certainly not least, were the positions of Circulation Manager, which Tom Tarbox held, and the position oi Adviser and Alumni Editor, which Mrs. Droste occu- pied, and at which she willingly spent many hours of her time. It was a hard and tedious task, and the success of the paper may be traced directly to her. I It is almost impossible for anyone to im- agine how much time and effort has been put forth by the Hilltop staff of 1954 in order to bring you this book. The endless hours of work began in September, when another financial campaign was launched. This cam- paign was the problem oi the Board of Pub- lications, a new group that was developed to simplify the soliciting ol funds. This board was composed of the editors of both the school's publications plus the business man- agers, Bob Klein, Abby Zook, and Paul Schriever. Thus, when a business or indi- vidual contributed to our cause, they helped make not only this yearbook possible but the "Orange and Black" as well. After the quite successful campaign was terminated, the editing ot the book began. Carolyn Hall, editor-in-chief, Gale Edwards, assistant editor, and Donna Dickey, art edi- tor, began working in their departments. They were ably assisted by Tom Tarbox, Marilyn Iacobs, Pat Faust, Elinor Ripley, First row: Dickey, Faust, Klein, G. Edwards, C. Hall, and Zook, Second row: Conrad, Tarbox, and Mr. Chipman. lm., Pang? 54,64 Nat CH Gerry Hall Paul Schnever Iudy Hewson Sara Mitchell Evelyn Iohnson Barry Lennon Rex Conrad Abby Zook and Iim Hall Mr Chipman was invaluable to the stati tor he not only acted as advisor but director as well Credit should also be given to Mr Aikin for the time and efiort that he put torth in order that the yearbook should have top notch photographs I The oihcers of the Black Club were se lected by the forty seven members of this organization They were Rex Conrad presl lyn Hall secretary treasurer Under the lead ershxp ol these persons this group excelled m all phases ot school life A greater number of Blacks attained ment status and par at the end of the hrst semes ter thus recervmg two valuable pomts Later m the year at E A s annual held events these students showed clearly their ability wmnmg seventeen out oi twenty tour events Several lndividuals were exceptlon ally notable The broad jump proved small obstacle to Carol Denny who broke the school record lor this event She reached a dlstance ol ll feet lk mches Paul Gielow followed this precedent by setting a new mark m the lumor boys broad 1ump reach mg 15 leet 5 mches The Jumor boys shot put also tell to the club through the work oi Hugh McVey who in addition estabhshed a new record of 29 feet 1 inch Leslie McVey and Sue Davidson set fresh marks in the Junior girls high lump This organization completed the year with the same fine spirit ol enthusiasm and co- operation shown at the tield events.

The Orange Club's ab1hty to wm many polnts m the academ1c held made the an nual Orange and Black competition closer than ever. I Masque and Gavel, an international hon- orary high school speech society, has been an active organization on campus this year. The purpose ol this society is to select for honor candidates those who meet and prom- ise to continue the high objectives of the or- der. Besides this, members must continue with their speech activities by giving chapel talks. assembly talks, radio and dramatic presentations. Masque and Gavel had nine active mem- bers on campus this year. Carolyn Hall was president, Sara Mitchell served as sec- retary, and Paul Schriever was treasurer. I "Quill and Scroll", which is an interna- tional honorary society oi high school jour- nalists, was established here at the Academy by Mr. Fetherlin, who now serves in the ca- pacity of sponsor, and has two advisors, Mr. Chipman and Mrs. Droste. The society is for Seniors only, and live members from this year's graduating class have the honor of being the charter mem- bers. They are Rex Conrad, Carolyn Hall, 'Q6! Oflftfl Evelyn Iohnson, Sara Mitchell, and Abby Zook. Upon pledging his membership, the new member promises to continue to report truth, to live with integrity, and to strive for better journalism in his journalistic activities. On May 8th in the Art Gallery, Abby lead the ritual that formally made these students members of the society. The junior candi- dates were also pledged at this time. I This year, the girls' and boys' choruses, together with our madrigal group, partici- pated in "The Littlest Angel," "The Lowland Sea," and "For Us A Child Is Born." An unusual number of superior voices added a note of fine quality to all lyrical presenta- tions. Every Monday, the madrigal chorus gath- ered in the Art Gallery, where they practiced various musical arrangements. Mrs. Keller patiently directed the students until a new song had been leamed and mastered. This group was formulated shortly alter Christ- mas. Nevertheless, at the end of the school year, they had acquired a sizeable repertoire. The Girls' Glee Club enjoyed a large and enthusiastic membership of twenty. Each Wednesday afternoon they all assembled, and with Miss Kroeger accompanying them on the piano, rehearsed the lyrics for Acad- emy productions. First row: Eichhom, Hill. Denny. Rogers, Zimmerman, G. Edwards, Martin, Laird, Lindblad, Faust, C. Hall, Zook, Hornbroolc, and Livingston. Second row: D. Olson, H. McVey. Suddeth. Sargent, Smith, Dobbert, Kaplan, Mitchell, McNeill, and Droste. Third row: Dunn. I. Hall, Blomberg, Klein, Cicmanec, Foreman, Bruce, Schott. Millar. Glashagel, Barber. Hamman, and Roth. I Will the weeks of preparation and anti- cipation prior to this year's Homecoming ever be forgotten? We all vividly recall that activities began in the fall with the date for this great celebration set for the week-end of October 24. We were scheduled to play Mundelein High School of Chicago, which had a big and certainly excellent football team. This meant drill and more drill for the football team. Planning lor the Homecoming Dance was no easy job, as the seniors soon found out. They decided to call their dance "Retum To gin Academy omecoming I 953 Paradise". and decorate the art gallery so that it would resemble a desert island, palm trees and all. The class was able to secure the services oi Don Adams and his orchestra for the evening. The traditional iestivities began with Old Clothes Day, which tumed out to be so warm that the tennis players were able to play a few good games before it was time to venture out to the Academy Bowl. At the field. flares were lighted which spelled out "Yea, Elgin," cheering began. and two lor- mer alumni were introduced who gave en- Above: Homecoming Committee: C. Hall, Schriever, Klein.

Coach Iohnson then presented the team members and an- nounced the captains for the game. Rex Conrad and George Giaras. Fireworks were then displayed, and a snake dance to Sears followed. After the buffet supper. "The Iackie Robinson Story" was shown in the recrea- tion room, and cider with doughnuts was served at the intermission. Early Saturday morning, signs announc- ing Homecoming and welcoming alumni were put up. and a few Aeichs took over the job of decorating the goal posts. Anyone driving by the athletic field might have seen the girls hanging like monkeys and madly wrapping crepe paper around the goals in the respective schools' colors. They finished their job just as the teams assembled on the gridiron. The game which followed proved to be a very exciting and tense one from the start to finish. Although we appeared to play a better game, Mundelein was able to edge out a close thirteen to twelve victory. The tradition of Homecoming was broken this year in one respect. The student council decided to have the King and Queen an- nounced just before playing time. so that they might reign over the entire week-end. Therefore, over the loud-speaker. came the news that the Homecoming King and Queen for 1953 were George Giaras and Carolyn Hall. They were then chauffeured around the field in a yellow Buick convertible, which was lent to the senior class for this purpose free of charge by the McBride Brothers of Elgin. The Homecoming Tea, which is annually sponsored by the Aeichlorian Society. started right after the game. This was one of the most successful teas of the year. for so many parents. friends, and alumni were there. The Homecoming Dance began that eve- ning with the receiving line starting at eight forty-five. The line was composed of Mr. and Mrs. Droste. Mr. and Mrs. Brett. Mr. and Mrs. Chipman. and the president of the senior class. Carolyn Hall, and her escort. George Giaras. During the intermission. re- freshments were served as usual. and the announcement of the Court of 1953 was made. Abby Zook and Sara Mitchell were the attendants to the Queen, who was offi- cially presented along with the King. Rex Conrad. vice-president of the class, did the crowning. The dancing continued until mid- night, and thus a strenuous but joyous weekend came to a close. AOIIIPLTOIII illg Gow-f 0 I Abby Zook. attendant: Rex Conrad, vice-president: Carolyn Hall.

An evening was spent in the "L'Aiglon" dancing to the fine music of Buddy Everett and his orchestra. All Saturday the decoration committee worked feverishly dripping candle wax of varied colors on wine bottles, painting signs. assisting Mr. Bey in manufacturing an awn- ing to hang over the wide entrance from the common lounge to the dining room, or hang- ing posters here and there. Soon. Sears Hall was transformed into a sidewalk cafe with palms bordering the entrance and striking red and white signs displaying the name of the restaurant. Of course, the awning car- ried out the theme colors of red and white in stripes with attractive scalloped edge, as did the red and white checked table cloths which gamished the small tables. These tables each had a wax-dripped candle on it and several French menus. The lighting of the candles lent the touch of atmosphere needed, as did the European travel posters decorating the walls. .x4eicA Arian ance FEBRUARY 6 SEARS HALL Foreman. Brett. Promptly at 8:45 P.M. the Aeichlorian offi- cers and their escorts began the receiving line, after which the girls took a bouttoniere for their dates from a lovely wrought iron flower cart. Following the grand march, the dancing began and the Parisienne atmos- phere seemed quite inviting. Midway through the evening, a few ener- getic souls began the Bunny Hop and almost everyone joined in. After this exhausting dance, the refreshments, raspberry punch and small cakes, were served by Mrs. Brett and Mrs. Droste. The senior girls then performed the annual intermission skit with Evelyn Iohnson setting the scene. Then Sara Mitchell, in a top hat and tails. serving as mistress of ceremonies, introduced Carolyn Hall, who sang "The Last Time I Saw Paris": Sara, herself, then sang "I Love Paris": and Abby Zook followed with a pantomime rendition ot "I Want To Be Evil" by Eartha Kitt. After this. dancing resumed until the bewitching hour of mid- night. It was then that the boys walked their dates back to Lovell Hall and the day stu- Top: Mitchell, C.

Toby Foreman very ably played the part of Dorie Davis, and Carl Schott gave an ex- cellent performance as Iohnny Dee, her lover who went to sea. The rest of the cast includ- ed David Olson as Nathaniel Hazard-a widower who desires to marry Dorie-and Peggy Livingston, Margaret Bumett, and Iimmy Davidson as his three children. Chuck Blomburg gave a fine portrayal of the cap- tain of the doomed ship. "The Scarlet Sail." One of the highlights of the performance was a dance given by Sara Mitchell, Bunny Kaye, Ianice Eichhom and Chris Hombrook. Other members of the supporting cast were Bob Klein. Iack Dunn. Kathy Sergent. and the Elgin Academy chorus. The stage represented a dock and a ship with the effect of distance given by a scrim curtain which was donated by the Mothers' Club earlier in the year. Under the dramatic direction of C. Dean Chipman, the musical direction of Dorothy Keller, and Constance Kroeger at the piano, the cast gave a notable and memorable pre- sentation which will long be remembered. The very able stage managers were Bruce Millar and Mark Walker, while Mrs. Flowers and her assistants, Ianice Eichhohn. Ruth Lesserman, Peggy Livingston, Mrs. Ogden. Mrs. Baker, and Miss Karsten, were responsi- ble for the costumes. After the opera, spring vacation came with a rush and all the events that make April and May two wonderful months. Chicago Day was announced, and this year was held earlier than usual. Three opportunities were planned: the Brookfield Zoo. a perennial fa- vorite. "This ls Cinerama", and "Me and Iuliet", the Rodgers and Hammerstein mu- sical play. Sixty students and faculty at- tended the latter and the remainder were divided between the Cinerama demonstra- tion and the zoo. Chicago day is always a banner event and everyone enioyed it as usual. PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB First row: White. Iordi, King, and Mr. Ogden. Sec- ond row: Podzamsky, Hessler, and Grabowski. . , The next events were the Freshman Dance on Friday, April 25. and then the annual rummage sale on May l. Davidson gym- nasium was transferred into a complete gen- eral store selling everything from gadgets to the latest in women's fashions. The mothers are to be congratulated once again for their untiring efforts in behalf of the school. The proceeds each year are used for the pur- chase of new equipment for the classrooms, kitchen. the stage of the Art Gallery. the athletic program. and many other things. Twenty-four mothers and many of the stu- dents helped on Saturday. when hundreds of people poured through the gymnasium. The Seniors had their gala day on Thurs- day, May 13, and went driving off to Starved Rock. Dividends from this trip were several good cases of sunburn. high scores in golf and a submerged canoe. all hands under. The Academy made its first appearance in the tennis tournament of the private league on Saturday. May 22. The toumament was held at the University of Chicago. Six mem- bers of the team attended with Coach Ors- born and Mr. Brett. The year came to an end with Baccalau- reate Service at the Congregational Church, examinations for two days. the Iunior Prom in the art gallery. and then finally the ninety- eighth graduation exercises. Another year became a part of history. as seventeen sen- iors received their diplomas. Ioseph Meek gave the commencement address and Mr. Droste presented the awards for the year. f7Ae jooigaf e,.,0,, I9 3 u I VARSITY FOOTBALL TEAM First row: Klein, Schriever, Greer.
