Each language is provided with a room which can be arranged in a man- ner in keeping with the language, and thus afford a more appropriate atmosphere. Pictures pertaining to foreign language and foreign countries will be centered in the new quarters. A small library containing books of foreign languages and foreign countries will be centered in the depart- ment's office, thus giving the student taking these courses an opportu-A nity for more extensive reference 'work and making such work rnucli simpler for the teacher. As a second stimulus to the course, there are the various clubs, The French, German, and Latin clubs give students a chance for practical application in addition to the pleasure they provide. Without an understanding of many languages the art and beauty of the old world will be lost to us forever. The study of foreign languages gives one broader knowledge of the world in which he lives and a better understanding of English. A11in1r1d1'vrf1'tc.' Miss Hazel F Linkfielrl, def partment head.

There are reauired courses in this field in Elgin l-ligh School, 1.-:hich are taught with the following obf jectives in mind: to give to the student a clear concep- tion of what various ages and cultures have contrib- uted, to present enough historic background to give an appreciation for the various types of government and social institutions in the past which have contributed to or modified our present social, political, and economic system, to develop in the student not only an under- standing but an appreciation of a government, what that government means to him, and what his responsi- bilities under this government areg to afford an underf standing of the economic system that the nation has tcday and a better itncx-:ledge of world affairs and cur- rent events, af: our present age makes its own history.

Algebra, plane geometry, solid geometry, and trigonometry are studied durin th f ' g e our years. ln plane geometry as well as solid the students make models to show those things in which geometry is found, naturally and indus- trially. Posters and diagrams illustrating geometric problems are of most im- portance. Elementary and college algebra are taught to give the student fundamentals which they need in the more advanced studies of mathemati cs. Business arithmetic is excellent training for those interested in bookkeeping. Shop mathematics, offered this year for the first time, is designed to help solve the problems that arise in shop work. The mathematics department looks forward with anticipation to the addition of more mathematics rooms in the old building, for there will be displayed examples of work done by this department. Of greatest importance, however, is the special project of designing and constructing a sun dial to go in with the landscaping at the southeast corner of the new building This work is left entirely to the students under the direction of their instructors. lt is with great interest that all look forward to it.

All fresliinen are reauired to take general :science Biology and geography are offered in tlie sophomore year, and chemistry and physics during the junior and senior years. Senior science, a relatively new subject, is a riori-technical course emphasizing the practical rather than the theoretical, This year a course in agriculture has been offer- ed 'lo all those students interested in farm- ing and agricultural niethods. Proloaloly no finer example of the practi- cal applications of science can be used than the designing and construction of our new addition. ln spite of the increasing number of Women entering careers three and four times removed from homemaking, girls are finding that their desire for knowl- edge of the correct food and right clothes is rapidly making courses in domestic science a necessity in their highschool days. Economy in the family food habits without omitting the essentials of a good diet are stressed in the foods classes. Girls are taught to assume responsibility in the planning of, buying tor, preparing, and serving of meals with a minimum of time, cost, and energy. Not only the fundamentals of sewing are taught in the clothing classes, but also the importance of color, line, and style in dress are emphasized. lnstruc' tion in quality and texture of fabrics is given to the girls so that they may better be prepared in choosing the right kind of materials. As the name suggests, the study of home problems centers around the study of home and family lite. The students learn how each member of the family can contribute toward the creating and maintaining of a happy home atmosphere. ln all these home economics classes the development of good manners, thoroughness, unselfishness, speed, and cooperation are stressed.

At the present time, courses in woodshop, mechanical drawing, and machine shop are available, and plans are under way to extend our program to better serve the students and community. Man is a toolfusing animal, and most people have an inherent desire to build things. lndustrial arts provides an educational opportunity tor this natural desire. This year we have been able to otler unit trade vocational courses in machine and sheet metal drafting, machine woodworking, and machine shop, also related chemistry and mathematics. These courses are correlated to give students an intelligent start in the industrial world. Vocational education provides training ior a chosen vocation and emphasizes skill. Visits to local industries to observe specific types of work in progress are taken to give students a chance to see production under actual working conditions. Vocational courses relate knowledge to work and should provide a student with the necessary skill and knowledge to go out and earn a livelihood. 16 mm , Miss Alma Schock head ot the Miss Engelbrechtls claws lohn F.

A typical health class in action. guifcler-A in !9Ag:5ica! glolucafion Besides studies we are lortunate in having our education broadened by many extra-curricular activities. Probably the department which con- tributes most to the students' outside interest is the physical education department. Education through physical activity is introduced to the students by this department. Those activities are organized which attord the widest tield for individual growth and development and lor the stimu- lation oi adolescent interests. The conversion ot the old gym into one of complete occupancy and privacy tor the girls has created wider interests in sports, dancing, and school activity. The completion ot the new gym for the boys has offered them a wider variety ot activity such as wrestling, tumbling, goli, bas- ketball, baseball, tennis, and badminton. The spirit ot playing tor the lun of it runs high in both gyms. Physical education also includes a course on general health rules, tirst aid methods, and prevention ol common diseases. During one semester ot the junior year, every boy and girl is required to take this course. 18 Head Nurse Miss Helen L. Revett and as- sistant nurses, Miss Mabel E. Sillirnan and Miss Mary Elizabeth Britton, attend to the The sight-saving class under the super- guifalerfi in ea f Prominent physicians have proved for us beyond any doubt that the healthy student is usually the best student. For this reason it seems that any school could introduce a varied program. Elgin High Schools health centers about a preventative policy rather than a curative one. The nursing staff under the supervision ot Miss Helen Revett conducts extensive examination in the school system so that any disease or epidemic can be quickly checked and counteracted. This year the Kane County Medical Association offered free tubercu- losis tests to all seniors and teachers Wishing to take it. These tests were given late in March, and 284 seniors and teachers took advantage of the opportunity. Those Whose tests proved positive were then given X-rays. This service should prove very helpful to all students. Miss Marie Ansel conducts a sight-saving department that allows those students to study highschool subjects who might otherwise not find it possible.

The organization and the outstanding efficiency in which the work of the offices is carried out is remarkable. Miss Evelyn L. Boettcher, secretary-registrar of the office at Central, gives invaluable service in carrying out the executive duties necessary, Miss Mildred Yates, who is in charge ot the Abbott office, must be commend- ed for the excellent Work she has been doing. Enough cannot be said of the competent direction of Central attendance by E. C. Waggoner, who has shown the students the value of regular attendance. ln all parts of the offices the directors of the various departments have found the assistance helpful of several post-graduate students as well as those stu- dents who are on hall duty. ogg..

Sports--Chief Interest. But time for orchestra and Hi-Y. 0 ELLEN ADAMEK Ellen belongs to G.A.A., First Girls Glee, and Commercial Club, but she finds drawing preferable to all three. 9 EARLE ADAMS Sparky prefers beating a drum to cracking a book, and so he iust ups and graduates. 9 BETTE AFFELD We wouldn't be far afield if we said Bets chief interests were music and reading, though she has others. 0 MARK H- ALLEY Entered from Oak Park. Paradoxically enough this Dark Alley finds sports and dramatics to his liking. 9 RUTH ALTHEN Ruthie draws all her designs on paper which is as it should be. 0 OTIS ANDERSEN Mirror, Mirror on the Wall, of 109 and in the hall. You owe your popularity to this lad nicknamed Odie, who manages to squeeze in photography, scouting, and dramatics, too. 0 CLARENCE ANDERSON -Andy-Aviation-Airplanes. 9 IOYCE ANDERSON He insisted we list all his nicknames of Swede, Andy, Ossie, Killer, so there isn't room to tell more. 0 RUTH ANDERSON Commercial Club counteracts Ruthie's unstable interest in skating, 0 ELMER ANDRESEN Active in both football and basketball, it is surprising that both Andy's chief interest and hobby are sports. 0 MILDRED R. ANDRESEN Red divides her time between music and sketching. 0 MARIORIE ATCHISON Atchie's time goes to her co-editorship of the Maroon and her solo work in A Cappella, and she does justice to both. 0 MERLIN AYLWARD ln the past, Murph has belonged to clubs and been in sports, but now he admits all his interests are centered on The Girl Friend. ' IOHN BADGEROW Badgie is to Commercial club as Maroon is to us. 0 RAYMOND BARNARD Barney keeps his interests hidden. 0 WALTER W. BARTELT. IR. It's not surprising to find that anyone as proficient on the drum as Walt lists music as his hobby. ' MARIE BARTON G.A.A. is the only club Mary seems interested in. 0 MARY BAZSALI Art and music do not hinder Gizz from being in several other activities. ' ROBERT BECKER The Hi-Y has been aided by Robin's membership for the past four years. 0 AGNES BECKMANN Becky has to be sharp to keep up in G.A.A., Home Economics, Commercial Club, and the Library Staff, 0 LETHA BEHM Letha's Behm may be legend, but she really is serious about photography. 0 MURLAND BEMB Bud is chiefly interested in sports and photography. ' GEORGE BEIJEAN Evidently being secretary of the lzaak Walton Club is of paramount importance, for Shutz is very blank on the subject of his interests and hobbies. 0 ROY BENNER lust a kid nicknamed Ice, 0 EVELYN BENNETT Four years in orchestra gen- erally give a member a greater appreciation of music, and Evelyn is no exception. 0 MARIORIE BERGER This president of French Club, Is also a Debator. And member in the band, Or her dear old Alma Mater. 9 FLORENCE BERGERSEN Roller skating and drawing being portable hobbies, Bergy brought them with her when she transferred from Minneapolis. ' EVELYN BERNHART Sunny''-Scrapbooks-Senior. 0 MARIORIE BEU Marge-Music-Mathematics Club. 0 HELEN BEVERLY Collecting animals does not pre- vent Bev from her music and belonging to G.A.A., Tri-Y, and French Club. 0 WARNE BLACKMAN Blackie-Band-Birdmen. 0 LOIS BOHNE Loie spends her spare time cor- responding to students in foreign countries. Rather novel to have their Bohne lie over the ocean instead of mine. 0 RUTH BONIN Despite the many clubs to which she belongs, Swede still finds time for tending the large props at class plays. 0 IOHN BORN Here's one of those boys who never managed to get in anything. Poor lad. Uust president of the senior class, officer in six clubs, music, publications, etc., etc.l 9 VERDELLE BROCKNER lnconsistently enough, this president of Home Economics lists dramatics and music as her favorites. 0 BETTY BROMAN Having been a member and officer in almost all the choral organizations, it is hardly surprising to find music Bets chief interest, with outdoor sports thrown in. 0 ROBERT BUCK After four years at E.H.S. we believe we can be ex- cused for passing the Buck. 9 LA VERNE BUCKHAHN The Rifle Club is certain of being supplied with Buck shot as long as La Verne is a memberg and what would the band do without him? U HARMON BURBURY Burb knows all the best places to eat and col- lects menus as he goes. 0 ELAINE BURGERSON The quaint hobby ot bead weaving does not interfere with Elaine's membership in G.A.A. and Home Economics. 0 CHARLOTTE BURMEISTER We give you Chic, the girl friend of the twirling dervish. Senior class officers, Katherine Hersch, secretary, and Iohn Born, president, conduct a class meeting.

The guy who doles us the money. I-le amuses the staff with his puns, but his puns are seldom punny. 9 BEATRICE DANNER Betty Lou, active in GAA. and Home Ec, wants to be a nurse. Will she practice archery on her patients? 9 DARYLE DAY Day is done and is he glad? Motorcycles are his fad. 9 DONALD DEPEW Don doesn't let his membership in Commercial Club interfere with his photography. 9 DAVID DICE Dave is the president of the ever growing EFA. We looked for other activities he was in, but no Dice 9 CECIL DICKERSON The secretive lad lists only his nickname, Curly 9 ROBERT DIEKMAN Another minority Hitler would object to -Bob's preference for the Glee Club over the German Club. 9 ADA DOIEL lumping from Plato Center to St. Charles and finally to Elgin gave Ada no time to acquire a nickname, but increased her interest in reading and sports. 9 DORIS DONNELLY Even with her creative genius she couldn't think of anything to say for herself. 9 ROBERT DOWNING A devotee of traveling, he pays lightning visits to both the Mirror and Maroon and is nick- named Lefty. Right? 9 MARIORIE DROUGHT Marge's portrayal in the junior class play led to membership in the Players. She's in GAA., Home Ec, and A Cappella, too. 9 ROBERT DUEWEL Bob, the lad with the Duewel personality, flits from Commercial Club to the Library Staff. 9 RAYONNE DUMBAULD Technically we're a bit vague as to the term applied to a swing pianist. But in this case its a Bunny 9 ALBERT DUNNING Doing his schoolwork at home has stimulated his creative ability. 9 DOROTHY EASTON Dottie-Dancing-Dimples. 9 DOROTHY EBERLY Dot has hopes of being a secretary, but she'll compromise by being treasurer of Commercial Club. 9 MERLE EHORN Merle has trained racing homer pigeons. They never get Mike fright. 9 RICHARD EI-IORN Dick, a member of the lzaak Walton League, races pigeons. Wings on Liberty. Vice-president, Gordon Rovelstad, and class adviser, Miss Mary Peters, discuss finances. Senior actors Brockner and Feuerhaken. 9 ROLAND EHORN Rollie must be a radical, He prefers hockey to pigeons. 9 WILLIAM EICHHORST Ike --lzaak Walton-Irrepressible 9 VIRGINIA ELLIOTT Gin -German Club-G.A.A. 9 LEROY ELVIN Slick goes in for intramural basketball and the Izaak Walton League. 9 CHARLOTTE EMERSON Nickname- Char Hobby-Sports. Clubs- Tri-Y, G.A.A. Thats what our reporter reports. 9 MARY ERDMANN Although Mary admits her favorite activities are musical, she does not slight G.A.A. or EHS. Players. 9 RUTH ERIXSON Maroon Staff is properly grateful to Rufus for her conscientious work. 9 IEROME FABER lack thinks he's doing us a Faber by telling us his chief interest is photography. 9 THELMA FACTLY Since she's a member of Commercial Club, we'll let Thelma Thel herself. 9 FORREST FARNSWORTH Fuzzy is quite the cosmopolite what with being vice-president of E.H.S. Players, secretary and treasurer of the Rifle Club, and an ardent follower of Indian dancing. 9 WILLIAM FEHRMAN Bill-Basketball-Baseball. 9 RAY FEUERHAKEN President of the High School Players, Ding Don devotes his spare moments to dramatics and dance drumming. 9 IOHN FLAHERTY lack can be found teeing off at any social gathering. 9 IEANNE FORSTER This Ieannie of the light brown hair for Tri-Y and sports has a flair. 9 MARIE FOSSER Marie chooses two unrelated subjects, sports and science, as her hobbies. 9 HARRY FRITZ f'Hans Fritz, that fugitive from a comic strip, goes in for athletics, especially baseball. 9 IOSEPH FUQUA Ioe's membership in the E Club is due, no doubt, to his proficiency in golf. 9 MILDRED GAEDE Mitzy is really an ideal Commercial Club member as her chief interest is typing. 9 CATHERINE GALLINA Tri-Y and band are Katie's first choice, with German Club and G.A.A. close seconds. 9 ELMER GIESEKE As the twig is bent so the tree inclinesf' and Elm goes for photography. Make of it what you will. 9 LAVERNE GIESEKE Verne's chief interest is playing saxophone. His favorite activity is the band. Nice dovetailing, that. 9 ADELINE GIESKE Being a member of G.A.A., Home Economics, and Geography should total up something, but we can't Ad 9 NORMAN GILLES Music seems to be Norm's chief and only interest. 9 RAYMOND GILLILAN Apparently Ray's transfer from East Troy, Wisconsin, didn't lessen his interest in sports. 9 IOHN GINNELL lohnny's interest is in sports, too. 9 DOROTHEA GOLL It's rather superfluous for Dot to say clubs are her chief interest when she's a member of G.A.A., Girl's Science, Home Economics, Geography, and German Clubs. 9 FORREST GOLLIHER Forrie's striking resemblance to Dick Powell is no handicap to his being president of the Geography Club nor to his activities in Hi-Y and Commercial Club. 9 RICHARD GOULD From Elgin to Elmira Heights-Then back to Elgin High School thrills, But what we really want to know-Was there Gould in them thar hills? 9 IULIA GRAF Kurtie's favorite clulc is G.A.A., her interests center about sports. Strange? 9 VICTOR GRAFF Aviation is Vic's chief interest, both in and out of school. 9 DAVID GRAUPNER A big business man on the make, Dave gets a lot of practice by being on the business end of the Maroon Staff, the senior class play, and the Fandango. 9 FLORENCE GREEN Flossie left University High School, Normal, Illinois, for the thrills of our Girl's Science Club, German Club, and the exacting Maroon Staff. 9 MARY GREENAWALT Despite all her activities Mary remains calm, studious, and cheerful. 9 NORMA GREVE lf we were Norma, we shouldn't Greve at leaving EHS., but her participation in G.A.A., German Club, Home Economics, and Library Staff may be per- suasive factors. 9 WILMER GRIFFITH Griff, of the deceiving cherubic countenance, gets around-via the band, the Mirror, golf, and the Senior Science Club. 9 GEORGE GRONEMAN Bud, late of Marengo High School, finds Elgin High well adapted to his inter- est in agriculture and the EEA. 9 LOIS GRONEMAN Lois belongs to Home Economics, G.A.A., and Commercial Club, and then, as a distinctive touch, collects dance programs as a hobby. 9 GRACE GRONEMEIER Gracie-G.A.A.-Glenbard. 9 IOHN GROSS Pho- tography may be Iohnnys chief interest, but land the Maroon is duly gratefull he places it secondary to his position as the Maroon's advertising manager. 9 DOROTHY GUDEMAN Dot should make an ideal wife with her interest in music tempered by a good supply of knowledge in home economics. 9 KENNETH GUGE Ken, a true radio enthusiast, places it above all school activities. 9 KATHRYN GURTNER Kay is the fifteenth letter in the alphabet and also a member of our band and Commercial Club.

Sports and Tri-Y all delight. 9 CHARLOTTE HARTMAN Char, another devotee of art, manages to keep in contact with school affairs by her membership in the Home Economics Club and G.A.A. 9 CHARLES HARTZELL Setting styles for clothes and long hair, Charley was 39's noted actor as the villian in Officer 666. 9 WANDA HAUT Ideal weatherg Windy and Haut. 9 BETTY HAWLEY Betty's outstanding athletic ability doesn't prevent her from being active in G.A.A., E.H.S. Players, and Maroon Staff. 9 NANCY HAZLETON Another noted artist, Nance received much recognition for a drawing of Charley McCarthy. 9 AGNES HEBEISEN Although she is an ardent German Club member, Agie takes no chances and limits her foreign correspondence to a native of England. 9 PHYLLIS HEIMAN On the Mirror business staff, is this little red-haired lass. And on the Senior Sales Committee she is always very witty. 9 BETTY HEINICKE If bigger and better cooks are made, Betty couldn't admit it, and after sampling her baking, neither would you. 9 ROBERT HENDRICKS If Fate is kind, we may see Bob social-science instructing, as he excelled in this field at dear old E.H.S. He worked on Maroon staff, too. 9 LAWRENCE HENKE Larry is evidently one of these silent, speed-minded individuals. 9 IEAN HENLEY lean, the secretary of German Club, finds an outlet for her dramatic ability in E.H.S. Players, for her social interests in Tri-Y, and for her sports in tennis. 9 NORMA HENNING With the active interest of roller skating, Norma naturally has taken a decided part in G.A.A. activities. 9 CATHERINE HERSCH Best citi- zen Hersch somehow finds time for Student Council, Tri-Y presidency, senior class secretaryship, Maroon business staff, four other clubs-and Katy still plays tennis! 9 FRANKLIN HITZEROTH Frank, one of our air minded students, manages to tear himself from aviation long enough to help on the back-stage crew for the class plays. 9 HOWARD HOAGLAND He listed radio as his hobby. That's Howie know. 9 ELAINE HOKE Hokey -Home Economics-Hiking. 9 GIFFORD HOLDEN Gif really takes his flying seriously what with his actual flying, his incessant construc- tion of airplanes, and his commandership in the Aero Club. lncidentally he took many pictures for this book, Did you notice the airplane view? 9 ROBERT HOLMES The president of the newly- formed Pep Club does not let his new duties interfere with his interest in auto-mechanics. 9 ROBERT HOLZMAN His participation in sports led Bob to the presidency of the E Club. 9 BETTYIANE HORNBECK Her recent arrival from Calumet High School did not stop Betsyjane from joining G.A.A., Home 'Economics Club, and Commercial Club. 9 VIVIAN HOWARD The sec- retary of Commercial Club's chief interest is shorthand.

We salute this fellow who partici- pated in the Future Farmers of America because to most of us F. F. means future farmers. 9 FRED KRUGER Fritz is a mechanically minded fellow who has made machine shop the center of his activities. 9 BEATRICE LA BRASH lf Bea be ilat or Bea be sharp, we'll know that it's just her interest in music. 9 EDWARD LAMBERT Ed has spare time only for Commercial Club. 9 FLORENCE LAMPRECHT This fair maiden probably has her lamps lit most of the time tWe don't mean her eyes, smarty.J as her chief interest in reading, 9 MARIORIE LANDIS 'Peggy''ephotographs-personality, 9 HELEN LANDWEHR Dolly's chief interest in life is music and more music, even though she belongs to several clubs. 9 ALBERT LANGE Commercial and the Izaak Walton Clubs do double duty as Al's chief interests and favorite activities. 9 HAROLD LANGE Booty - bounces-basketballs. 9 WILLIAM LANGE Rubs membership in Izaak Walton has probably helped him to be more judicious in his hunting. 9 HENRY LESCHKE We find that Hank likes photography, football, and he's on the Mirror staff. 9 RUTH LIEPITZ Nickname, 'lRudy -hobby, skating hactivities, Home Ec, Commercial Club, and G.A.A. 9 GRACE LINDBERG Grace, lacking the daring of her namesake, is content to collect postcards as her hobby. 9 HELENE LINDER She wrote the senior class song, she belongs to the German Club, she likes the songs of cowboys, and she's called Arkie because she came from St. Ice, Arkansas. 9 LAURIE LOCHNER Although Laurie is secretary-treasurer of the Rifle Club, his hobby is motor boats. 9 VIOLET LOEK G.A.A. and sports vie for favor from Violet. 9 VIRGINIA LOGAN Ginger-Glee ClubfG.A.A. 9 BETTY LORANG This red headed bookworm chews up all the latest literature. 9 IEAN LOVELETTE Frenchie is an appropriate name for this designing woman from Aurora. 9 ROBERT LUDWIG Robin, vice-president of M.A.C., singles out tennis and basketball as his favorite sports, 9 DOROTHY LUND When ice-skating is out of season, Dot spends her spare time reading. 9 MARY LUTZ Mary Mar won't read anything but big thick books Will Les Miserables in Braille suffice? 9 LOIS IEAN MANN It's comforting to have a Mann around to shoulder the responsibility as Lois's work for the Mirror business staff and the junior class play can testify. 9 RUS- SELL MASI If odd nicknames are determining factors, Moxie has an excellent future in the field of his chief interest--sports, 9 WALTER MATTOCKS Walt, a future Edison, may- be, spends his spare time in his home workshop performing chemical experiments, building models, and manufacturing various articles. 9 RAY MCCHESNEY This Wizard of Oz finds mechanics act as a Baum to everyday annoyances. 9 LILA MCCORMICK Lila, the girl with eyes and hair the same enchanting shade, seems to run to the S's for her avoca- tions-sports, scouting, Senior Sales Committee. 9 LEO MCDONALD Mac is another of these athletic boys, baseball and intramural basketball take up his time. 9 IUNE MCDONOUGH Taking pictures in Iune or with Iune or by Iune is permissible-if a Kodak is used. fNo plug intendedb. 9 IOHN MCLEAN Mac, a past master in the art ot avoiding work, spends his many spare moments in photography and reading-and track, 9 IANE EVA McTAGUE What better hobby could Ianie have than reading? 9 IOHN MCTAVISH Hobby, sports-nickname, Max -club, Izaak Walton.

He didn't list any Moe 9 MARY MORLEY Mirror staff, Commercial Club, and G.A.A., with collecting foreign dolls as a hobby, keep Mary busy. 9 PHYLLIS MORTON Even after four years she can't get her Phil of music or G.A.A. 9 HOWARD MOULTON Howie spends all his spare time dealing in stamps. 9 MARGARET MUETTERTIES Margie may conceal her executive ability beneath a smooth blonde exterior, but G.A.A. and Tri-Y can vouch for its presence. 9 GLENN MUHR This reserved individual acknowledges woodshop as his hobby. 9 CAROL MUNTZ Music, dramatics, sports--but mostly sports for Carol. 9 AUDREY MYHRE Maybe we're wrong, but from the little information we gleaned, we'd say Audrey was interested in G.A.A. and Commercial Club. 9 PHYLLIS NELSON For cen- turies dancing has been the favorite pastime of young ladies, and Phyl is no exception. 9 RUTH NESLER lf you can bear our being allegorical, we'll say that to us Ruthie is energy personified-sports being her chief interest. 9 AGNES NIMMRICK Agnes managed to find time to participate in Commercial Club and Maroon Staff even if she had to slight her chief interest, music, to do so. 9 ROBERT NITZ Nickname, Bob-Hobby, Golf-Interest, Commercial Club. 9 FRANCES NORD Drama and music have a magnetic attraction for this Nord pole, and Frannie does right well in both. 9 NAT NORTON Nat's responsibility as treasurer of E.H.S. Players and sports editor of the Mirror truly earn him the name of Prof. And do you remember him in the senior play? 9 DOROTHY NUTTING Wouldn't this vice-president of German Club be surprised if she opened her Maroon and found Nutting? But really, she's very active in music and is in Tri-Y, E.H.S. Players, and sports. 9 ROBERT ORTON Bob turns to aviation when the combined duties of the Student Coun- cil, Publications Board, E.H.S. Players and presidency in the Senior Hi-Y become too much for him, 9 HOWARD OSTDICK Howard has been a member of the boys glee clubs for all four years, so naturally his chief interest would be music. 9 MARION OTTE Shorty goes in for the Home Economics Club and hiking. 9 BESSIE PACHTER Betsy likes G.A.A., Commercial Club and bicycling. 9 HAROLD PAULSEN Bud is his nickname-Hunting is his forte-He came from Minneapolis-And so ends our report. 9 MARVIN PETERSDORF We'll tell you all we know.

However may we please in- quire why on his name he tacks Esquire, 9 WALTER ROHRER It may give you a Rohrer, but Walt finds nothing laughable in hunting, fishing, and badminton. 9 GORDON ROVELSTAD Gordie, president of the junior class and vice-president of the senior class, is so active in the Mirror, A Cap- pella, E.H.S. Players, class plays, Hi-Y, and orchestra that it's hard to single out one particular ac- tivity to spotlight. 9 MARY ROVELSTAD If this has to be in equestrian terms, Mare is a filly that would carry our money any time with her success in nine activities. 9 IEANETTE ROWE Net- tie forsook her music long enough to help out the business committees of the class plays. 9 RALPH ROWE President of Math Club is this lad called He likes photography and scouting. That's all he had to say. 9 VIOLET SANDBERG Sandys enjoyment of music is second to no other inter- est. 9 ROBERT SAUER Wimpy's math interest leads to astronomy, and his football activities to E Club, but what leads to his work on the Mirror? 9 BEATRICE SCAMEHORN Tuffy may be her wild and woolly kitten, but we don't agree that he's quite ferocious enough for this Roselle lass to call herself a Beaty. 9 ANGELINE SCARLATA Angie has our stamp of approval on her col- lecting hobby. 9 MARY SCHALLER Mary likes travelg but so far her duties in G.A.A., Home Eco- nomics, and Commercial Club have kept her comparatively busy. 9 MARGARET SCHAUER Dolly's real interest may be music, but she puts enough spirit into her cheer leading to mislead anyone. 9 NANCY SCHELLENBERGER Nan's petite blondness belies her capacity for such prosaic work as secretary of Home Economics. 9 PAUL SCHICKI.ER German Club and lzaak Walton both have this athlete for their president, 9 ALICE SCHMIDT Smitty-Sports-Snapshots. 9 BETTY SCHMITZ Frenchie takes to dance, she likes winter sports, and she belongs to G,A.A,, Home Ec, and Commercial Club. 9 LOTTY SCHMOKEL Smokie distributes her interests between the Mirror Staff and outdoor sports. 9 HARRIS SCHNATHORST lt's rather self evident that this clarinet player and member of A Cappella would find music his favorite activity. 9 ROBERT SCHNEFF Bob- Baseball-Boys Science Club. 9 LUCILLE SCHRAMM Lucille values sports and G.A.A. as her favorite school activities. 9 EDNA SCHULT Eddie by her own admission collects both songs and elephants.

She came from Lincoln, Nebraska. 9 MILDRED SCHULTZ Millie, Maroon Staff, and G,A.A.g Art and Commercial Club-she calls it a day. 9 ROBERT SCHULTZ Although Bob's chief interest is radio, he no doubt owes his membership in the E Club to his work in football. 9 AUDREY SCHULZ An avid reader, a tireless worker, an embryonic scientist-all these characteristics make Audrey invaluable to the Maroon Staff and the Girls Science Club. 9 WILLIAM SECHRIST Willie is no sly recluse, in many clubs he is a member.

Well, our frosh-soph teams are those poor unfortunates who are sub- Ject to this unenviable task. The hard knocks and bruises are numerous, but these frosh-sophs have proved that they can take it. These boys played a regular schedule similar to the varsity, and out of nine games, lost only one. Sixty-nine finished the season. Fighting every inch of the way, the frosh-sophs have not let one member of the varsity squads feel secure of his posi- tion. Always threatening, they have forced the varsities to fight all the harder to hold their own.

However, they had some fine prospects to patch up va- cancies in the lineup and lohn Krafft as coach. The boys were very quick to fall into a winning stride, copping de- cisions in all of their pre-conference games. The opening of the Big Seven Con- ference still found them in winning form. This, however, was short-lived when they met the speedy Rablets. This sud- den reversal of form, unfortunately, did not immediately leave our lads. After dropping the next two decisions, local lights then proceeded to take matters in greater earnestness, dealing punish- ment alike to all opposition with the ex- ception of Freeport and loliet. The closing of the season found our lights located in fourth place with a .500 rating. However, because of the in- eligibility of one of the lightweight cagers, the lights had to forfeit all but one of their games, and final revised standings found them in sixth place, Lightweight Basketball Standings 1938-39 W.

After tour years ot participation an emblem is given through the G. A. A. by the State Association. At the end of each year a local award is given by the G.A.A. to those girls who have earned a required number of points. At the end of the fourth year, if the girls have two thousand points and have observed health rules, they are entitled to the State Award, or emblem, which is given through the high- school athletic association by the illinois League of High School Girls Athletic Associations.

Another high light in this sport was the exhibition games played on the opening night of the new gym. Another ot the individual sports which can be played all-year- round is ping pong.

Under the able supervision of Roscoe S. Cartwright, Elgin is the only school to have reached the national finals more than once, The objectives of debate and speech work are to teach the student to think logically, to organize material effectively, and to interpret other's thoughts and emotions to an audience. This year Elgin has had another successful term. Blazing through at the McCahill speech tournament at Drake University, Elgin Won it for the second year, the only school ever to achieve this honor. At the Coe College tourna- ment at Cedar Rapids, lowa, Elgin received superior rating, While at the Wheaton tournament the squad tied for third place. Combining all events Elgin placed second in the Northern Illinois District of the National Forensic League tournament held in this city for the first time. Not only in debate Work did Elgin have a successful year but also in indi- vidual events. At the sub-district contest held here, the contestants all qualified for the district tournament at DeKalb. There Elgin and Freeport qualified for the state finals in debate held at the University of illinois. ln individual events Paul Rogers qualified in original oratory, Ruth Helm in extemporaneous speak- ing, and Cheryle Feld in dramatic reading.

When the curtain arose, the stage presented the typical backstage of an opera house. The theme was Hollywood Bound. Black-laced men, lovely maidens, the dress-suited interlocutor, Charles Wagner, singing, dancing, instrumental music, and plenty ot comedy made this seventh annual minstrel a success, Laughs were furnished by the six end-men: Douglas Rogers, Tom Maule, lohn Dillon, Robert Spinner, Russell Schneider, Richard Peterson, and' the night watchman, Fred Sell. The minstrel, directed by Mr. lohn F. Fletcher, Was a high-light of the year. 9 Against a background ot colortul pennants surmounted by eagles, Bernice Mattke was crowned Queen ot the May at Abe bott's Sixth Annual Spring Festival on May l2, l938. The Queen and her attendants, Audrey Berlin, Shirley Nitz, Barbara Geister, and lean Nelson, were previously chosen by a stu- dent vote. The setting for the festival was American in theme, and the color scheme was dominated by gay spring colors.

The entire lete was under the able leadership ot Miss Wilda Hoopengardner. 87 ntral Dana play: their fall f-cncf rt HPCAQJ Besides occupying a prominent place in the school activities, the First Band, under the direction of U. K. Reese, has extended its influence into city affairs by furnishing music for civic enterprises and presenting public concerts. ln one concert alumni band members were featured, in another the solos and ensemf bles prepared for the state contest, in which the band participates each year, were presented, The band has been undefeated in district contest for ten years, has won first in state contest for three years, and has Won second in National contest for two years. Because of this, and because the band plays at one outfof-town football game each year, it is very well known. By supplying the necessary color and pep, the band adds to the spirit of not only our football games and pep meetings, but also our basketball games. The First Band is open to more advanced musicians who have had sufficient experience and training to deserve their appointment. Practice is held four times a week in the auditorium and one-half credit is given for participation, Special noon rehearsals and sectional practices are held to further the bands ability, The second band is in reality serving an apprenticeship in music, for here they learn the rudiments which enable them to enter the more advanced first band. Anyone playing a band instrument is eligible. The president is Lewis Robinson, vice-president, Ray Feuerhaken, secretary, Marge Berger, manager, Gwendolyn Reese, librarians, Marge Berger and Catherine Gallina, and drum majors, Charlotte Burmeister, Marge Berger, Barbara lean Leigh, and lane Coleman, 88 l'LU'I'L5 The Abbott Band, under the direction of lohn F. Fletcher, is composed of ninety players who began the term by presenting an early fall concert for the public. A very colorful and sucf cessful annual minstrel show was presented in October. This organization participated in the contest at East Aurora, rating superior, and was well represented by soloists and en- sembles. Those with a first rating, who will represent the band at the state contest at LaSalle-Peru, were Fred Sell, trornbonist, Ellen Barnhart, French horn player, Keith Davis, saxophonist, and the trombone quartet composed of Fred Sell, lohn Geister, Russell Schneider, and lames Chapman. The band marched in several parades, had a gala Christmas party after which they attended the Arcada Theater in St. Charles, and staged a hike and picnic at Wing Park. At the football games the band showed their loyalty and skill by making formations on the field and playing stirring marches. The officers who help the band members carry out the pur- pose, Happreciation of, and ability to play good music, have been Fred Sell, who served as president, Russell Schneider, leanne Thornas, Anne Pearsall, and loyce Foltz.

The orchestra was represented in the district contest at Au- rora on March l5, 1939, by two soloists, Barbara Tobin, who played a violin solo against very stiff Competition, and lanet Stewart, who gave an excellent performance on her cello, Both of these young artists received a first division rating which en- titled them to participate in the state finals at LaSalle-Peru on April l5. By giving a series of four Sunday afternoon concerts called the Sunday Symphonic Series every winter, the orchestra has placed itself in the public eye, A typical program consists of classical compositions by such farrious composers as Haydn Baff, Bach, and Franke. Expenses of these concerts are defrayf ed by a silver offering. A number of the orchestras members take part yearly in the Fox Valley Music Festival at Aurora, which was held this season on May l5, The Abbott representatives have won a fine reputation in these festivals. Officers are elected every semester by the members. A presi- dent, vice-president, secretary-treasurer, and two librarians, George Laurischke, David Davis, Ruth Kluender, Marjorie lohn son, and Helen Shull, were chosen this semester. The student directors were David Davis and Barbara Tobin. The playing season was interspersed with various social active ities such as picnics, luncheons, and a Christmas theater party, Abbott orchestra po es between prec s 90 Central orche tra has its annual concert. Through participation in our highschool orchestras, instrumental players may gain very valuable experience. The principal objects of the orchestra are: to develop in all players a keen appreciation for good musicg to improve indi- vidual skill in the technique of instrumental playing, to encourage those plays ers who are highly gifted to pursue their development to the professional levelg and for those who will use it only as an avocation to find joy in non-profes- sional groups in the community. The highschool orchestral groups include the senior orchestra at Central, directed by Miss Marion Laffey, and the junior orchestra at Central directed by Miss Eva M. Featherston. The highschool orchestra presented two evening concerts, one in December and one in March . . . furnished auditorium programs . . . aided in the Christ- mas Assembly . . . went to Chicago to hear the Chicago Symphony Orchestra . . . participated in the Fox Valley Festival in May . . . and had a dinner party in lanuary.

These groups played for both the senior and junior class plays, school banquets, auditorium programs, P.T.A. meetings, and commencement. The orchestras were represented in the All'State Orchestra at Urbana and by soloists in the district contest in March and the State finals in April. The president of the senior orchestra was Marvin Clements, other officers being Arland Randal and Ruth Rouley. 91 .X4 G Central choir poses. An Abbott mixed chorus around the piano. Singing is the art ot enthusiastically interpreting with the human voice the thoughts and emotions of a beautiful poem which has been glorified by a vivid melody. A cappella singing is the highest achievement in choral music, a perfectly blended ensemble ot voices, the object of which is to carry out all the ideals of voice work. The A Cappella Choir had a very busy season although they did not go to contest this year, for, by giving a broadcast in Chicago, over WLS and the NBC. network, by appearing as guest organization on a program April 23 at Proviso Township l-ligh School, by entertaining Proviso here as our guests April 30, and by numerous other local engagements, the choir has had a most successful season. The presidents of the choir have been Iohn Born and Betty Broman. They have been assisted by Barbara lohnson, Dorothy Nutting, and Frances Nord.

E5 CAicLenA A modern three-act comedy entitled Mother Carey's Chickens, based on the book ot the same name written by Kate Douglas Wiggin, was presented as the junior class play on May 27, 1938. The story is built around Mrs. Careys large New England family and the per- plexing problems that confront them. Their biggest problem concerns a cer- tain will, leaving the house that Mrs. Carey and her brood occupy to the tor- mer owner's grandson, Tom Hamilton. But Tom lalls in love with Nancy, one ot Mrs. Carey's daughters, and all ends well. The bits ot comedy are added by the Carey's neighbors, who include Mr. Poppin and little Lallie loy. Because of the skiltull direction of Miss Marge Biersach, the excellent tal- ent of the cast, and the ingenious abili- ty ot the committees, the play became one ot the high-lights ot the junior year.

Players laugh at each others' costumes Mask and Bauble has a walking rehearsal. at their annual banquet. Kdgefrf The Players, which is the dramatic club for juniors and seniors, has had a larger membership this year than ever before. The object of the Players is to give every member some chance to work in a play production, whether in the role of actor, producer, or stage- hand. The high-point of the year was the production of the Three One-Acts with the cooperation of the Mask and Bau- ble. The plays given were 'Dinner for Two and The First Dress Suit. The profit from the One-Acts helps the Play- ers to carry on their projects for the next year. The Players have many good times together during the year, The Hallow- een party this year at Lloyds, on Octo- ber 3O, was the most successful social event of the year. Albert R. Crews of Chicago spoke on the theater of Eng- land. The theatre party in Chicago was another profitable social affair. The club, sponsored by Miss Marge Biersach, was led this year by Ray Eeuerhaken, Forrest Farnsworth, Mar- garet Shamberger, Nat Norton, lane Wilson, and Margaret Muetterties. L GJEJ Mask and Bauble, the dramatic club for underclassmen, has been under the sponsorship of Miss Mabel Engelbrecht and Miss Helen locelyn. This dramatic group has been particularly interested this year in the presentation of original plays. Most of these plays have been given for the club in walking rehears- als. My Cousin from Sweden and Peanuts, directed by Miss Engel- brecht, were two of these interesting programs. Breakfast at Eight, direct- ed by Miss locelyn, was presented by the Mask and Bauble in the Three Cne- Acts given March l7. Every spring this club gives one of the three plays. Other programs were composed of group pantomimes and impromptu pan- tomimes which illustrated the move- ments of the head and body. Mary Wheeler gave an educational talk on Paul L. Dunbar, the famous negro poet, in which she read a number of his poems to the club. During the Fan- dango the members sold pop corn. All of these activities have been under the leadership of Tom Bonnike, Betty Poole, Marilee Born, and Bill Allerton. urfain. 0 This years selections by the dramatic groups were presented on March l7. An unforgettable moment in Dinner for Two by Glenn Hughes came when Ted CRaymond Buthel returned to the checkroom to call for the coat belong- ing to Valerie fMarilyn Underwoodl. Then lean CVirginia Knightl and Kay iCheryl Gene Feldl realized that their little scheme for impressing the new boy friend Hugh fliobert Broitzmanl was all over. The original and colorful setting de- signed and executed by Paul Orktritz and Howard Voss added signally to the effectiveness of the scene. 0 The high spot in 'The First Dress Suit came when Teddy Harding fStanf ley Gettlel realized that lohnny Drake flziobert Bennett? was about to Wear his dress suit to the wedding. Mrs. Hard! ing fShirley Benderl and Betty Harding flane Wilsonl held their breath hoping that Teddy would be the generous boy and save the day. All the backstage committees excell- ed in supplying the necessary back- ground and effects. 9 The happenings at a breakfast table were aptly revealed in the one-act play 'Breakfast at Eight presented by the Mask and Bauble under the direction of Miss Helen locelyn. The mother, Alice Gardner, tried to apply modern child psychology to her three children. Rob- ert Laird, Fred Witt, and Mary Ann Danielek took the parts of the children. Patsy Roemer was the capable maid. The father, Dick Clendening, was very much perturbed by the actions of the children. ' The onevacts presented in April by the Abbottarians, directed by Miss Helen Kocher, were extremely clever. The audience appreciated the contrast be- tween the girl of yesterday and the girl of today after seeing 'lThen and Now.

The student leaders ot the organization have been l-lelen Louise Brady, president, lean Nelson, Catherine Nelson, lohn Geister, and Mila lohnston. 6 The Literature Club, sponsored by Miss Elma Engelbrecht, has thirty-eight members. The club is very interesting because it gives its members opportunities to do those things lor which there is neither time nor space in the English classroom. The otticers, Leslie Davenport, Marilyn Clark, Warren Dolby, and Lucille Gromer, directed the club in the following pro- grams and activities: a talk on Scotland and the Orkney lslands by Miss lessie Mowatt, a Halloween Party, a Christmas program in which Charles Dickens' Christmas Carol was dramatized, a tloat in the Pep Parade, a Fandango stunt, and the purchase of books for the new library.

Every noon the club has tlying time when the members fly their models in contests for endurance. The members are promoted by the length of time their models fly and by examinations. The most important program this year was an air- plane clinic, to which the members brought their models. The models were criticized and suggestions made on how to improve them. At other programs re- ports were made on new developments in flying and new safety devices. This year the Commander was Gifford l-loldeng Captain, Robert l-less, Sergeant at Arms, Darwin Schultz. gd 6!gQ:5 Aero Club members examine planes. Abbott Girl Scouts get together. Be prepared is their motto and our Abbott Girl Scout troop attempts to carry this out by meeting every Wednesday evening during the school year. With Miss Ardyce Woodside as director the girls enjoyed a gala Christmas party, a theatre party, and talks at some of their meetings. They have been working on book binding as a projectg they have also been making books. Another project was an ice cream sale. Along with their work they have fun playing games at their meetings. At the Fandango they sponsored the spooky ghost walk. These girls have been the of- ficers for the year: Katherine Kelly, Lucille Woodrich, Lois Allen, and Mila lohnston. l l ' 9 l'To find and give the best is the aim of junior and senior girls belonging to the Senior Tri-Y .... To face life squarely, the slogan. Most of the club's activities and programs are based on these two splendid ideas. ln November the girls filled Thanksgiving baskets and distributed them to needy families in Elgin. Other activities during the year included several meetings with the Senior Hi-Y, pot-luck suppers, dances, and sports activities. The Tri-Y, or Girl Reserves, is affiliated with the Y.W.C,A. and is a national organization. The sponsors this year have been Miss Cleora Iohnson and Miss Adela Thom. The president was Catherine Hersch, and other officers were Frances Mason, Shirley Kelly, and Barbara Crafts. 9 The lunior Tri-Y, one of the most popular of the girls clubs, is open to all freshmen and sophomore girls who wish to develop their personality and to become all around girls. interesting events of the Tri-Y year were the Christmas dance on December l9, the St. Patricks Day dance on March 17, a talk by Miss Hazel Rust on 'lf-lobbies and Handicraft, a Halloween party, a hayride, a pot-luck supper, a sandwich supper, a mothers' and daughters' tea, and a trip to Chicago-all of which aided in making this year a successful and enjoyable one. The director was Miss Cleo Krogsrud and the president was Marilee Born. The other officers were Alice Gardner, Gloria McLean, and Cecial Eshleman. 9 The Abbott Tri-Y was organized to develop the personality of and train the members in creating a friendly manner at all times. The officers of the Tri-Y this year included Barbara Geister as president, Mary Muntz as vice-president, Helen Louise Brady as secretary, and Anne Pearsall as treasurer. Miss Mildred Yates is the director and sponsor. A few of the activities during the year included the filling of baskets at Thanksgiving for some needy family, a Christmas Party for a group of poor children, a Mothers' and Daughters' Tea on St. Patricks Day, March l7, and the annual Spring Dance on May l2.

The most interesting program of the year was the panel discussion given by about fifteen of the boys of the group on their trips to the l-lieY Older Boys Conference. The l-li-Y clubs from all over the United States send delegates to this Con- ference, where national and personal problems are discussed. The boys also had a panel on 'Personality Pointers. As a climax to their study of crime, the boys this year made a trip to the loliet Penitentiary. A pot-luck supper with the Tri-Y girls, followed by a skating party, pro- vided interesting diversion. Mr. Maurice Graff, Mr, Kenneth Rehage, and the ote ficers, Robert Rogers, Robert Orton, Charles Schumache er, Robert Schnetf, Harold Abts, Lewis Robinson, and George Damisch, direct the organization. 0 Vitamins and white rats! The Hi-Y boys of Abbott had education galore when they visited the main research laboratory of the Borden Milk Company. ln February they presented an assembly program in the form of a motion picture, which dealt with the liquor problem. Two of their members represented the local club at the l-li-Y Conference at Glen Ellyn. During the year they enjoyed several informal gatherings. Robert T. Winn and Dr. G. M.
