Now that we are Seniors, dignified and other- wise, let us report what has been seen by those who have watched us. In January, 1911, we entered dear old Elgin High, a class of one hundred and forty young folks. With rapidly beating hearts, we passed by twos and threes into our session room, III, where Miss Ellis and Miss Smith gave us our first instructions about attending this wonderful place. Some have never for- gotten the advice given us, while others haveg especially, the hints on passing directly to our classes. At the close of our Freshman year, fourteen boys had organized a debating club, of which Earl Smiley and Dick Pearsall are finished products. We were well represented in the Ninth and Tenth Grades Declamation Contest, Girls' Glee Club, Orchestra and Athletics. By the time we were Sophomores, one of our members was captain of the debating team, and stood highest in a debate at Rockford. The Girls' Indoor Baseball Team was successful in winning the cup, and we left the Sophomore year, confident our class would reflect credit on the school in the two years to come. The following year we organized, and selecting " Pudge " Rider for presi- dent, chose the class flower, motto and colors. Inspired by organization, we gave the reception to the " E " men in 1913, and were anxious to give the Sen- iors a pow-wow, which took place at Trout Park later. Our Interclass Basket- ball Team gently but firmly took the cup away from its former possessors, and made up the best material for the first team. Our membership increased in both glee clubs during our junior year, and we earned the name of " The most energetic Juniors " that had sprung up for many years. Of course, one could have told that by our " lively " class meetings UQ. XVithout any joking, the class meetings have been exciting during our last year. " Curly," our president, has made dents in Mr. Larsen's desk with his gavel, trying to maintain order. Perhaps our first accomplishment was a class distinction, other than just our class pins. The girls wore little navy blue felt hats, with orange "15's" in front, while the boys sported navy blue flannel shirts, decorated with orange numerals on the pockets. Eqster joined our ranks in 1914, and has proven himself an all-round fel- low: He excels in speech-making, football, basketball and track. Among the social activities of our Senior year, were the " plantation party " given us by the faculty, " VVally " and "Jeff's " farewell reception, the skating party, and the " hard times " party, given to the faculty. As a memorial, the class is expecting to leave a mural decoration over the stage in the auditoriumg the money for this, and the Annual, was made by giv- ing candy sales, baseball comedies, a Larkin order, the sale of special tickets, as well as the skating party, and class-play proceeds. VVe have always been foremost and victorious in Hag rushes and color grabs, and as we leave, we are proud of our record. Although Pope says: " VVhoever thinks a faultless piece to see, Thinks what ne'er was, nor is, nor e'er shall be," the Class of 1915 believe we have proved a success, even more than any class preceding us.

It's up to us to choose the path On which we wish to treadg " Our lives are as we make them," We have often heard it said. And as the time draws near to leave, Fond memory brings to view The four bright, happy years we spent Old Elgin High, with you. NfVhen first as Freshmen we began, Till now, the four years o'er, We stand, upon commencement day, Before the open door. The many, many football games In memory's eye we see, And how we all got out and cheered Our team to victory. In baseball, too, and basketball, Our teams have stood the test. We always have been proud of them, They always came out best. Our ship has finished with its course, And anchored safe and sound. We've sailed the sea of High School life Though tempests did abound. Our colors stand for what is good, The orange and the blueg The orange means " progressivenessf' The blue, we know, means " true." So l'1ere's a toast to Elgin High, Forever may she stand, The finest high school in the state, The best in all the land. And may she always view with pride The members of this class, VVho now go out into the world, To mingle with the mass. And let's keep right on working hard, And fight a good stiff fightg And climbing ever higher, reach At last a glorious height. James Eppenstem 42 25939535 MAROON QKGKGKS Qllauaa Qlnmmenrrmvnt Sung We have climbed the hill together, We have labored side by side. Always looking to the future, And this day which is our pride. VVe have toiled and longed and waited, For this hour which now is here, XVhen we launch forth on life's ocean, Knowing not what may betide. Chorus : But my comrades, comrades all, There will ne'er a day go by, But our thoughts will turn to schooldays That were spent at Elgin High. And, our teachers, one and all, Who were faithful, kind and true, When we're scattered far and wide, We'll be thinking thoughts of you. Some may gather friends and riches, Others lowly paths pursue, Some may enter halls of learning, Others grace a home of pride. Still another in a cottage, May in peace and love abide. Some may find that fame awaits them, As they battle 'gainst the tide. Chorus: 43 39393325 MAROON Qgqeg Qllawu lgrnplpzrg ' Class Prophet, I have been dubbed and knighted-yea, verily, dubbed and knighted-knighted over strange and long-lost secrets possessed by Spirits, who guard us protecting us from harm. Bad, or evil Spirits, will not receive recog- nition, as they do not deserve consideration, or apply to us. Therefore, the term Spirit as here used applies only to the Good One. l Aided by the powers of the Spirits, and their secrets, I have been taken into the unknown " Lands of the Future," whence I have been privileged to see the Class of 1915 in some of its future career. Once upon a midnight dreary, While I pondered, weak and weary, Over many a mysterious potion Of the Spirits, forgotten lore, VVhile I wandered, nearly napping, Suddenly there came a tapping As of some one gently rapping, Rapping at the commencement door. " 'Tis some Spirit," I muttered, " a Spirit Of some graduated class of yore." And the portent's uncertain vision Thrilled me-filled me with fantastic Fancies never felt before. Then the phantom Spirit speaking, Speaking as a guiding impulse, of The prophecy at the commencement door. Then it ceased and left me wandering, Pondering at the commencement door. Then methought, the air grew denser, Perfumed by an unseen censer. " Prophet!" said I, " thing of evil, Prophet still if good or evil, Tell this soul, with mystic trances laden, If within the distant Aiden, It shall see the future painted as before." Then the prophet went on speaking, Speaking of our future as before. In the visionary vapor rising, faintly at first, then clearly, I beheld a sea, flooded with beautiful swimming daisies. The angel of Peace and Happiness seemed to have full sway over this flowery habitation, and life or growing ac- tivity was everywhere apparent. Most of the faces I thought seemed familiar, but the fast thickening vapor was again obscuring my sight, making vision very uncertain. Limited space causes me to say that the future, as I have seen it, will not be published in this volume, but my observations will not go wanting for want of expounding, as the coming Class Day will mark this great epoch in our future history. Having observed a glimpse of our future I am fully convinced of the real meaning of our motto, " We finish to begin " 3 that concluding our high school we have merely laid a necessary step in the stairway of our future. 44 co E E-' 41 :D D 4 M CD od QC KJ LP' O I2 .2 r ,iq A ,.

A com- mittee of investigation, consisting of V. Coleman, chairman, M. Rovel- stad, W. Ansel, Metzel and H. Hollembeak, decided on giving the affair at Trout Park. The tax committee, namely R. Pearsall, chairman, E. Ferriss and R. Aldrich, reported that each one must pay thirty-five cents if the refreshment committee furnished all provisions, or fifteen cents and each one bring a picnic lunch. The latter suggestion was adopted and each person carried his little lunch basket. The class voted to have the junior and Senior teachers for chaperons, and also to invite the two year graduates. The affair was held on the Thursday of graduation week. A feature of the afternoon was a baseball game between the Junior and Senior boys. Of course the juniors won! Mr. Price thoroughly enjoyed himself dishing ice cream until his hands were blistered, and all seemed to have their fill of " eats " when lunch hour was over. Many couples enjoyed canoeing or rowing on the river, while others stuck to dry land and picked wild strawberries. Dinner was served cafeteria style. Members of the refreshment committee helped in serving. They were S. Carlstrom, chairman, L. Sandberg and B. Harrison. During the excitement and pleasures of the afternoon the girls took kodak pictures of their best friends. VVhen dusk came on the boys exercised themselves and gathered a pile of wood. A big fire was lighted, although not many sat around it, as the attrac- tions on all sides were too great for one to sit by a fire and dream. Miss Tull had quite a time at the close of the day, calling her flock together from the river and the woods, but she stuck to her job and did not leave the park until all were safe and sound and promised to go home soon. Most of the crowd present, having spent the preceding day at the Class Day Picnic, held at the Elgin Country Club, were tired out at the end of the " perfect June day," but none were anxious to leave the park, for this was probably the last time that all of the old classmates would gather together and have a good time. lVhen these people get into the business world and perhaps forget each other, or never see one another, something will perhaps remind them of the good time they had at that last picnic, they will, perhaps, find kodak pictures taken by one of their ardent admirers, they will remember how " Pudge " lost the peace-pipe, and spent most of the early evening in hunting for it-" when other attractions did not claim his attention." They will recall that some one accidentally pushed "Jamie " into the river, how they fell in line from four to seven times for ice cream cones, and how, when the hands of the " ice cream dishers " were blistered, and the pail was turned loose for anyone who wished it, the boys had a tussle to get the cream, and a select few, having managed to get it into a boat, went out in the middle of the river and ate it. All of these incidents will not be forgotten for some time, and everyone at the hour of departure expressed his or her feelings as to the kind of time they had. These feelings and expressions, summed up into a few words are, " We had one grand time l " 68 289393225 MARooN 3i'2 R 1914 Qlnmmvnremmt OMMENCEMENT week was a busy one for the members of the class of 1914. On Monday evening the Maroon Club gave a dance at the Watch Fac- tory Gymnasium. Tuesday evening the class play, " The Flower Shop," was presented in the auditorium. The stage was decorated in flowers and the whole effect was a charming floral setting. A matinee performance was also given for the benefit of the grade school pupils. Miss Ethel Parks in the leading role was exception- ally good, while Edwin Meehan was equally as good in his part. The play seemed almost as if it had been written for the class, it was so appropriate. The class picnic was given on Wednesday at the Elgin Country Club. The grounds were open from nine o'clock A. M. to eight o'clock in the evening and the class enjoyed an all-day picnic. Busses ran to and from the grounds to ac- commodate the crowds. Many played golf while others remained in the club- house and played cards. All brought their own lunch, so at noontime groups, large and small, were seen all over the grounds, enjoying the delightful pleasures of eating a good picnic lunch. On Thursday the Juniors gave a Pow Wow at Trout Park. Everyone had a good time as the Juniors pulled off many original and unexpected stunts. On Friday the Commencement exercises were held in the Auditorium of the High School. Professor Judson of the University of,Chicago was the speaker of the evening. Both Glee Clubs sang several numbers for the oc- casion. The auditorium was beautiful with its front rows filled with graduates, and the stage banked with beautiful deep red American Beauties, the Senior Class flower. Professor Judson delivered a fine, impressive speech, after which Professor VVhite spoke a few words to the class, and presented them with their hard-earned diplomas. On Sunday evening, preceding Commencement, the Baccalaureate Sermon was delivered by the Rev. E. D. Ellenwood in the Congregational Church. The Senior students sat in a body in the front seats downstairs. The talk by Rev. Ellenwood was most impressively delivered to themg one that will not soon be forgotten. The class, realizing this would be their last chance to sit together in one body, were in a serious mood. They listened carefully and quietly to everything Mr. Ellenwood had to say to them and took his speech to heart. We hope all learned something and will profit by their knowledge. The days and evenings were exceedingly warm, but every one was thankful for the bright, shining sun, instead of rain which would have interfered with the pleasures of the week. The Alumni reception to the graduating class held in the VVatch Factory Gymnasium was the final event of the year, and the Alumni lived up to their reputation of being royal entertainers. Every event of the week proved a suc- cess, a thing that can not be said of the doings of every graduating class. A plan is now being worked out in High School whereby the Seniors will not have everything crowded into one week. There is no reason-at least there ought to be none-why the Senior play can not be given sooner, if the rehearsals begin a little earlier. The class of 1914 worked hard to make all of their affairs a success and they were well paid for their hard work. Although of course they weren't as wise as the class of 1915, who profited by their mistakes, we must all admit there were some good heads in the class. They were the Suffragette class. Their password was, " Leave it to the girls, and watch the results." 69 39325325 MAROON ESQEEKGQR Zliarnltg liartg in Sveninrz NE of the most successful masquerades given in the High School Gym. in 1915 was that given by the Faculty to the Seniors. The receiving line consisted of all the Faculty members, headed by Mr. Larsen. As the crowd entered, Mr. Larsen made an attempt to guess who each one was. This was a difficult task, as there was everything present from a pickaninny to a retired " classy " gentleman. Having passed the receiving line, the guests took seats on the bleachers for a program which followed. The minstrels, consisting of a number of colored teachers and Seniors, were the first entertainers. Bob Newman and Jeff Metzel were the end men-Spare-ribs and Gravy-and they were very amusing. Their songs were good. Mr. Larsen sang a solo, and Mr. Oakes played the piano, while the crowd all joined in the chorus. Jokes and slams were thrown in all directions. Following this a part of Uncle Tom's Cabin was given by Miss Solomon, Miss Vollor, and D. Schmitz. Miss Vollor's representation of Topsy was especially good. Mr. Elrick, Mr. Jolley, and Mr. Angell did some clever sleight-of-hand stunts. One of them was to produce some candy from an empty hat. Of course, the Seniors liked this, for the candy was passed around. Marion Clark and Vincent Coleman ended the program by clogging, much to the delight of the audience. A song was then sung by all of the actors and actresses. Miss Tull made a typical southern aristocrat, while Mr. Tucker, a charm- ing colored lady, was more irresistible than ever. Old-fashioned costumes were numerous-some humorous. There were many other splendid costumes and many concealed their identity for the greater part of the evening. A social time was enjoyed until the refreshments were served, consisting of sandwiches, pickles, coffee and cakes. Decorations were in the Senior Class colors, navy blue and orange. The drawing classes made some paper pennants, which hung on the sides of the Gym. and big paper shades with " 1915 " and " E. H. S." cut out of them, decorated the lights. This shows that we have a very artistic Faculty. Many of the Seniors see only their teachers in school and never attend the same social functions that they do outside. This sort of party brings the two together and they get acquainted in another way. Flashlights were taken of the crowd by Miss Solomon. These pictures turned out very well. The Seniors surely appreciated the efforts and work of the teachers to give them a good time, and it is hoped that these parties will be annual affairs. " I-Iere's to our Faculty " 5 if you please, It's plain we can praise them with great ease, They'll pay you back-you wait and see, Miss Tull won't scold, Prof. Larsen won't jaw When you try your hardest to break the law. Miss Ellis won't send you from class any more NVhen you come in late and slam the door. Mr. Miller won't always ask for your slip When the previous day you had to skip. A warning we leave-a good one, too- lf you're nice to them, they'll be nicer to you. If you don't believe us try 'it and see- " Here's to our High School Faculty." 70 393333325 MAROON 55236568 Juninr Skate " Merrily we roll along, happy lad and lass! Rolling money in the box for the Junior Class." HE Juniors, hearing how the Senior Class was scraping around for money, decided that they ,would get an early start, and when they were bestowed with the dignified and envied name of Senior they would be rolling in wealth. A skating party seemed to be the best way to start to roll, so Ruth Pierce, Raymond Strohm, and Eiline Stewart, a committee of three, chosen by the class, made plans and arrangements for the party, which was given on the eighteenth of January. Neat programs were secured, carried out in their class colors, purple and silver, with the motto of the class printed at the bottom. The motto, " Our greatest glory consists not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall," was well lived up to during the evening. The grand roll was led by the class president Cat that timeb, Leslie Han- nah, in company with Lineta Lees. The Juniors seemed very fond of moon- light skates, as there were many of them listed on the program. The Juniors, younger and more extravagant than the stately Seniors, spent more money on their programs, so that the profits were not as high. But they have another year in which to save their pennies. The party was well chaperoned, well managed and wel-come, all rolled theirltroubles away. If the affair was not a success financially, it surely was, socia ly. Swninr llnll " Merrily we roll along, happy lad and lass, Rolling money in the box, for the Senior Class." HE skating party given at the Coliseum by the class of 1915, for the benefit of the Annual, proved a great success. The committee that arranged for the affair consisted of Leslie Hannah, Rosemary Aldrich, Helen Hollem- beak, and Harold Schwartzfager. Each member of the class was held respon- sible for one ticket, which sold at thirty-Five cents. The grand roll was led by the class president, " Curly " Haligas, and Jo Ro er. y Several races were arranged for the skaters. jo Royer won a box of candy in the candy race. Wasn't that sweet? The seats were filled with " sight seers," who enjoyed watching " Spills " and " Pills," but who were afraid to participate in the events of the evening. It was thought by many that such a party would not be supported by the Seniors, but they showed their enthusiasm and backed the affair. No money was spent for programs, or "things like that," so that all the money taken in was a clear profit. The total amount received was about twenty-five dollars. The only regret the class have is that not many Faculty members were on skates. At the next skating party given by a class in E. H. S. we hope at least to see Miss Ellis, Miss Bement, Mr. Miller, Mr. Smith and Mr. Larsen, doing the Dutch Roll. 71 Q5 MAROON QE Zlnninr illllaaqur fur Illnnthall Svquah FTER trying to persuade the Board of Education to allow them to give a dance to the football team, the Juniors finally decided that the most satisfactory form of entertainment would be a character party. The date was set for the first Friday in December. This was the best party ever given to the football team. Everybody was in costume. Paul Schlager, Ralph MacDonald, and Iris Krueger were awarded prizes for the best costumes. A grand march was led by Leslie Hannah and Irene Rovelstad. The crowd next adjourned to the auditorium, where a good program was given. A six-year-old Chicago boy sang several songs and danced. Mr. Rubin, likewise of Chicago, next sang and played any ragtime piece called for by the audience. Axel Blomberg, acting as a minister, married Miss Farrell and Mr. Lenhart, the parts being taken by DeEtte Lockmiller and Clyde Lacey. Oriel Thiers was the maid of honor, and Melville Miller, father of the bride. This entertainment was announced in a most amusing way by Lane Hubbell, who kept things lively with his foolish pranks. Song cards were passed among the audience, on which they put their names and costumes. Then they passed them around so that everyone else could sign them. This idea helped the crowd to mix .and get acquainted. The orchestra played several selections during the evening. After the program in the auditorium everybody went to the Gym. again, where ice cream, cake and cookies were served by Senior waiters and waitresses. After the refreshments, speeches were made by Red Day, Dave Brandt, Mr. Tucker, and John Meagher, Leon Haligas, Jeffrey Metzel, and Mr. Goble. The speeches were all clever and well delivered. Even the bashful boys, like J. Meagher and Dave Brandt, grew very oratorical before their speeches were finished. jeffrey Metzel, who had everything on backwards, made his speech with his back to the audience and a false face on the back of his head. It was very amusing to watch his gestures, which were cleverly managed. The Seniors, who helped with the serving, enjoyed themselves immensely, and were glad for the opportunity to be present at the affair. just before the speeches were made, while the crowd was busy talking, the " E " men went into Mr. Tucker's room and elected next year's football captain. VVhen Mr. Peckman came back to the Gym. and announced Dave Brandt as captain-elect he was given three cheers by all. After the speeches the crowd went home, feeling that they had had a very enjoyable evening. The 1914 football men certainly deserved a party. The efforts put forth to make this party a success are nothing compared with the efforts put forth by the "E " men in their football games, when they were determined to bring home a victory for old E. H. S. There is no question but that these parties should be annual affairs, that a great deal of interest and enthusiasm should be shown to- ward them, and that the football boys, the coach and the manager should feel that this is but a small token of appreciation shown by the students for their hard, earnest efforts toward the improvement of athletics in our High School. 72 5393252355 MARooN EQWGKK Bath 'imma Marin HIS Senior Class, before graduation, wanted to give the Faculty some kind of a party, in appreciation of all they had done for them in their four years of high school life. A committee of three, consisting of VVellington Rider, Mildred Goodrow, and Madaline Vollor, was appointed by the class to arrange for the affair. A hard times party was decided upon. The party was given on Thursday evening, May 6, in the High School Gym. Never before was such a " poor crowd " seen. Everyone who appeared in the door with a stiff collar on was immediately relieved of it. Curly Haligas and Miss Vollor led the grand march, and a hilarious one it was, to be sure. Following this everyone danced the Virginia Reel, which fur- nished much amusement. Then a novel indoor track meet was staged. Three teams competed, namely Chicago, Northwestern, and Illinois. Chicago won the most points. Andrew Thornton won first place in the SO-yard dash, which consisted of chewing a long string until he came to a piece of candy at the end. It was comical to watch the teams try to hurry and then laugh and lose all they had in their mouths. Miss Wilcox and Miss Farrell were the victors in a three-legged race and caused much excitement among the crowd. It would have been hard to distinguish between the Faculty and the Seniors, for all forgot themselves and entered into the games and activities with great enthusiasm. Refreshments were served by some of the Senior girls. The " eats " con- sisted of fruit salad, sandwiches, olives and pickles, and ice-cold lemonade. The decorations were suitable for a hard times party. All six baskets were filled with large bouquets of lilacs, and four large hanging baskets, hung from the center of the Gym., loaded with flowers. Crepe paper of all colors was stretched to the comets of the Gym. and every color of the rainbow presented itself in some form or other. Nearly all of the Seniors attended the party, and the majority of the Facul- ty members were present. Loyalty songs and popular music were sung during the evening. Vivian Carbaugh was asked to play the piano. She was the only Junior present at the affair. The Seniors enjoyed entertaining the Faculty, for they were very good guests and entered into everything. " Here's to the mighty Seniors," VVe've cheered the Faculty. The noble Seniors' turn comes next- Here goes now 1-2-3! Curly's the biggest one of the crowd And Andy's the fastest boy. Don't laugh at Pudge-at least out loud- For he's a dangerous toy. The girls-no need to mention them- They're loyal thru and thru. " Our class is far the best," they say- " Old Orange and true Blue." NVhat use to toast to every one ?- You know them one 'and all, From little Harold, short and fat, To jamie, straight and tall. 73 E I 74 USE Li N glbxf? 'h ci 'JU ff' gl, 9,2- 1 ' 'x gli f E. P, 2 .

Ilianng sinh Ellie Svrruant Iirnhlem " Fanny and the Servant Problem," by Jerome K. Jerome, the play given by the class of 1915, was a grand success in every way. Although the play has not an involved plot, it possesses much humor and there are many funny inci- dents which combine to make it an interesting and delightful play. The parts were well chosen, and each student was well fitted to the part assigned. The scene, which takes place in Fanny's boudoir at Bantock Hall, opens with a discussion between the Misses Wetherell. They are two sweet old ladies, who look very much alike. They are interrupted by the entrance of Dr. Free- mantle, who consoles them in their trouble. Their trouble is that Vernon or Lord Bantock, their nephew, is about to bring home an actress as his wife. Needless to say, the old ladies are very much shocked. Vemon, however, has not made his station known to his bride, who thinks him to be just Mr. Wetherell, an artist. They arrive at the hall sooner than was expected. Soon after their welcome by the aunts, Fanny discovers that the butler is her uncle, from whom she ran away to go on the stage, and the rest of the serv- ants all her relations. There is a scene in which Bennett, the butler, tries to make her realize that what she is accustomed to do as a chorus girl is not the proper thing for a lady to do. Even though Fanny is his niece his interests are centered in the House of Bantock, and according to his old-fashioned notion she is not fit to be Lady Bantock. Fanny resents him and his notions, discharges the whole family and plans to return to the stage. Vemon rallies from the shock of the fact that his wife is his own butler's niece, and shows her that his love for her has not changed. Bennett, who has not considered himself discharged, bestows his blessing on the pair, and from then on he is not uncle, but butler. The cast was selected by Mrs. Cowlin, Miss Ellis, Miss Tull, and Mr. Larsen, who assisted in the coaching and made it the success it was. 83 QE' MAROON i5E Glhimrz nf nrmemhg OT long after the organization of the Glee Clubs of this year, the subject of concerts was discussed. The suggestion by Miss Wilcox, that the two clubs go together and give an opera, was considered and finally accepted as the best policy. The opera selected, " The Chimes of Normandy," was one which required careful study and interpretation. The story of the opera is as follows: Henri, Marquis of Corneville, who, owing to civil war, has been an exile since childhood, returns to his ancestral home on the occasion of the great annual fair which is being celebrated in the village that receives its name from his chateau. In the first act, the curtain rises on an assemblage of gossips. Serpolette is the topic of conversation among the belles of Corneville. She comes in just in time to turn the tables on the others, and changes their taunts into expressions of rage. Gaspard, an old miser, wishes to marry his niece, Germaine, to the principal magistrate of the district, the Bailli. This arrangement does not suit Germaine, nor a young fisherman named jean Grenicheux, who pretends that he has saved her life 'from drowning. To escape from the power of old Gaspard, Germaine takes advantage of the privileges of the fair and becomes a servant of the Marquis. Her example is followed by Grenicheux and Serpolette. The second act is taken up with the .supernatural visitors, who have made the Castle of Corneville so long an object of dread. Henri determines to find out the real character of these ghostly appearances, and discovers that it is all the work of the old miser, who has concealed his treasures in the chateau. The discovery drives Gaspard crazy. The third act represents the grand fete given in honor of the return of Henri. Serpolette arrives as a Marchioness, as some papers found in the chateau indicate that she is the lost heiress. The miser, however, recovers his reason and shows that Germaine is the true Marchioness. A love duet between her and Henri and the reconciliation of all the parties bring the romantic story to a close. The parts were taken by Clifford Hunn as Henri, the returned Marquis, Ethel NVelsh as Serpolette, the good-for-nothing of the village, Chloe Pletcher as Germaine, the lost Marchionessg Alice Hammers as Gertrude, Stina Carl- strom as Jeanne, Helen Hollembeak as Manette, Raymond Hunn as Jean Greni- cheux, a fishermang Lane Hubbell as Gaspard, the old misery Roland Snellgrove as the Bailli, the magistrate of the village, Earl Smiley as the Notary, Louis Linke as the Registrar and Cecil Hayward as the Assessor. The chorus repre- sents the villagers or attendants of the Marquis. The opera was a big success, due to the efforts of Miss Wilcox, the musical directressg and also to the orchestra. 84 ' Q 85 M A R O 0 N fdnninr 1512111 Glam Eramatia Hvrannw I ........,..,..........,............

The first number on the program was an electrical stunt by George Postle, assisted by Herman Gantz. Mr. Postle fooled and puzzled his audience with his clever tricks, while Gantz took the part of a fool to perfection. Rudolph Swartwout entertained the audience with picture talking, while the scenery was being shifted for the " Mirror Staff Stunt," which followed. The staff managed to slam a number of people in their clever production of " How the Mirror Comes Out." Next Miss Aulie gave two dances, which were very good. Miss Vivian Carbaugh was at the piano. " Goin' Back to Tennessee " was a laughable negro stunt. The girls taking part in this were Eleanor Goble, Helen Shirley, Margaret Pegler, Margaret Rice, Katherine Davery, Helen VVoodruff and Dorothy Hubbard. Next came " Harry Lauder," "judge William Hubbell's" own produc- tion. Lane was exceedingly clever, his Scotch and negro dialect being remark- ably good. " The Acrobatic Absurdities " followed. George Underhill, Leonard Han- chett, and Edwin Ferriss were the acrobats. Some difficult stunts were done in very good form, which showed that the boys had spent much time in pre- paring these things. Following this the "Senior Serenadersu sang and played several pretty selections, which took very well. The Serenaders were Alice Hammers, Chloe Pletcher, Eleanor Kobusch, and Lineta Lees, with Madaline Vollor as pianist. Then a little short play, " The Pan of Fudge," was well acted out by Caro- line Mann, Edna Russell, Stina Carlstrom, Gertrude Rayner, Dorothy Schmitz, and Mildred Goodrow. Next came one of the best numbers, the " Klark-Koleman Klog." Everyone enjoyed this and Miss Clark and Mr. Coleman were called back to the stage several times. Following this the Girls' Glee Club gave a Dutch Frolic. The costumes were very impressive and the dance and songs were well received by the au- dience. The next to the last number was the " Discourteous Four," namely Leslie Hannah, Cecil Hayward, Richard Pearsall, and Axel Blomberg. They sang songs and slammed all who they thought needed slamming. This kind of a stunt always takes well with a High School audience. Last, and perhaps the best on the program, was the "College Sextette," consisting of Wilda Logan, Stina Carlstrom, Helen Hollembeak, Dorothy Schmitz, Madaline Vollor, and Mildred Goodrow, six Senior songsters. The scene was a complete college room with massive wicker fumiture, a fireplace, and even a cute little white poodle dog. Their songs were clever and original, and the one entitled " Tuck " ought to be listed with our High School songs. This concluded the program. The Mirror Board was much pleased with the interest and enthusiasm taken in this program. Ne-xt year it will not be so long, but so many good stunts were received this year that it seemed a shame to reject any of them. Such a concert brings out talent that otherwise might not be found in high school. We all hope that in years to come the school will continue to have its Comedy Concerts, and we feel. sure that they will always be a success. 87 39255252 MAROON SQKKGKS iiigh Srhnnl Eramatirn HE keenness of the desire on the part of High School students to take part in a play, and the earnestness with which they work to make more nearly perfect a part that has been secured, point to the great value of a systematic course in dramatics for students at this stage of their education. The interest manifested in the subject will go far towards ensuring its true suc- cess, and will lead to a development, in the student, of resourcefulness, con- centration of mind, knowledge of human life, and an altruism that realizes that all must pull together, that in reality there are no inferior parts, but that each is vital to the whole, and that, however well the work of the leading parts is done, the small parts, excellently read, bring equal honor to the actors, and give a finish to the play that it could not possibly have were such team Work lacking. Quite frequently a consideration of the subject does not include a full ap- preciation of the educational importance of the acted drama-possibly because, all too frequently, its functions have been perverted to the supplying of tawdry entertainment-but as an aid in the teaching of English literature the value of dramatization can scarcely be exaggerated. Among educators the demand is becoming more and more insistent for " an organized correlation of the dramatic and the literary in our English courses " Q that the approach to a play shall not always be through the gate of critical analysis, but that certain recitations be given over to dramatized forms of parts of works read, and reviews of the classics. Such exercises, given frequently, can be made of great social service, developing powers of memory, judgment, taste and feeling, and giving a chance for self-expression to many who find no such opportunity in athletics, or even in extempore speech work. One of the great needs of present-day education is that the mental traih- ing of students shall be supplemented by training in moral judgment, and in the development of strong, virile personalities. There need be no hesitancy in claiming that, among the many helpful agencies in the development of such personality, school dramatics deserve a prominent place, because of the univer- sality of the dramatic instinct which, rightly directed, develops an appreciation of moral values, a correctness of judgment and a power of initiative that are of inestimable value. It must, however, be home in mind that, in order to reap the greatest benefit for the greatest number, the students must do much of the planning and carry- ing out of the dramatic scheme, seeing and suggesting much that will help to " suit the action to the word and the word to the action." One of the successful ways in which more dramatic work can be done in the High School is by means of a dramatic club, open to Juniors and Seniors who may be elected to membership after passing a test in dramatic reading. In the ninth and tenth grades the work can be more profitably undertaken in the recitation periods. Interclass competitions add zest to this work. It is usually conceded that, though dramatization is only one of the valuable forms of oral expression, it presents possibilities for visualizing great truths that few other forms can surpass, and the knowledge of human nature, gained and applied by taking part in a play, is an acquisition that a student appreciates along with his class pin and his diploma.

The discovery of one era is lost in the next, only to reappear at a later day, hailed as a triumph of modern ingenuity or science." This statement has been quoted as aptly illustrating the history of the teaching of English in this country. After years of neglect of extempore speaking, and of oral reading, the com- munity is now being reminded of the inestimable value of such work, and the colleges, by means of contests in these subjects, are endeavoring to again put the emphasis in the right place. To make the Elgin High School Contests, for ninth and tenth grade stu- dents, conform to what is a part of this advance movement, it was decided, this year, to substitute, in place of the usual form of declamation contest, one in which each number was a reading prepared one hour before the time of reading to the public. p At a preliminary contest, open to boys and girls, Frances Fitchie, Eleanor Goble, Mildred Henning, Dorothy Hubbard, Juanita Morgan, Ruth Mumme, Margaret Pegler, Margaret Rice, Helen Vfoodruff, and Ralph Brown were selected to appear on the program. As Ralph Brown withdrew, the nine girls competed for first and second places. One hour before the time for the contest, the competitors drew for place on the program, and for the passage to read. The readings for the tenth grade students were from two of Tennyson's " Idylls of the King," "Gareth and Lynette," and "Lancelot and Elaine " 3 and for the ninth grade, from Scott's " The Lady of the Lake." A brief synopsis of each story was given to the audience, in order that the readings might be more interesting. Each girl read well, several read excellently. The judges were three teachers from the Cicero Township High School. Their decisions gave first place to Margaret Pegler, and second place to Dorothy Hubbard, who each received a gold medal. E. U. ELLIS. 1, 1 4 QL4, 3 L, J 90 FOSTER PEARSALL SMILEY Uhr Hrvliminarg Qlnntvntn E have been making rapid progress in extempore speaking and effect- ive reading this year and Elgin may justly be proud of those selected for the various final contests. In order to determine those most fitted to represent our school, there have been preliminary contests which have not only enabled us to choose those who seemed to be our best, but which also bring out a wealth of material and so furnish a valuable indication of the people to whom we shall look for later contests. Not only from the standpoint of the judges, but also from that of the students have these preliminary contests been helpful. They have in many cases shown the individual that he has ability in a direction which he has not heretofore considered and give him an ambition to develop that talent so that it may later become a valuable asset to him. And just assoften it proves to the aspirant that he needs more work in that same direction so that he may reach the degree of proficiency for which he has hoped. This year an innovation from the old form of declamation contest for the ninth and tenth grades was determined upon: an eifective reading contest being chosen. A goodly number reported for the preliminary and from these were selected the representatives of the Freshman and Sophomore classes. Next came the selection of a cast for the Junior play, which has also been an innovation of the year. It was decided at the time of the preliminary to select four people to carry the leading role, one for each act, thus offering a better opportunity for the juniors to display the wealth of histrionic talent in their class, as well as lightening the burden of preparation for each individual. Following the junior play was the selection of a candidate who should represent us in effective reading contests during the year at the colleges which offer to us an opportunity of sending a contestant. Richard Pearsall was chosen as our representative. For letter writing contests, which are held in much the same way at near-by colleges, Mildred Kerr was chosen. The last preliminary contest was for the choice of extempore speakers, and was held in the auditorium. The contestants were given the choice of two subjects and had an hour in which to prepare. Of the eight candidates, Earl Smiley was chosen for hrst place, john Foster for second, and Margaret Quinn as alternate. In this way, during the year Elgin has not only derived considerable pleasure at home from the work of the students, but feels well represented in the competitive work with high schools of other cities. E. G. FISHER. 91 289325 MARooN QHGGKK Uhr iixtvmpnrv Swtmnn URING the school year of 1912-1913, a new form of contest work was introduced in the public speaking department of Elgin Highg that of extemporaneous speaking. VVhile the participants in this work took up something entirely in the school curriculum, they aroused an interest which has not diminished, but rather increased in importanceg enabling us to uphold our school honor in contests with other teams. To the work of the 1913-1914 teams, was added that of effective reading, making it possible for us to take part in large contests at the University of Chicago and Lake Forest College. Elgin was well represented in all past con- tests, as has been the case this year. In the preliminaries, held March, 1915, Earl Smiley and john Foster won first and second places, respectively, to repre- sent Elgin in the extemporaneous held, and Richard Pearsall in reading. Two alternates were chosen, one for extempore work, the other for reading. Mar- guerite Quinn and Jessie MacCornack took these places. Our first contest was that held at Chicago April 16. The subjects here were taken from practical questions, such that any High School student should be able to discuss. The reading selections were taken from " The Idylls of the King," by Tennyson. Saturday, April 17, we entered our second contest, held at DeKalb, by the University of Illinois. The topics chosen were taken from the three magazines, the Literary Digest, The Independent, and The Outlook, for the three months previous. Two boys were chosen from each of Five districts of Illinois to speak at Champaign May 14. ,Iohn Foster won second place at DeKalb, and also took second in the finals at Champaign. In our last contest, held at Lake Forest, a representative, Mildred Kerr, was chosen to enter the letter-writing contest. The subjects here were chosen from the field of history, science, and literature. The reading could be taken from any of the English or American literature. In all these contests the team did very creditable work and their efforts are certainly worthy of mention. Earl Smiley, the first on the team, is an exceptionally pleasing speaker, handling his subjects in a very skillful way and proving himself to be well read and of sound logic. He will leave a very estimable record as an earnest worker in all school interests. .Iohn Foster, his team mate, is an excellent speaker. lfVith his originality and keen sense of humor, he makes his subjects very entertaining as well as instructive. He has also done efficient work in various other forms of school activities. Richard Pearsall, our reader, is a student of high standing, capable of interpreting his selections in a very capable manner. He is a zealous worker and shows careful study. Although the work of this department is in its infancy, there is a great fu- ture ahead, affording many opportunities to pupils especially adept in this line of study. The recognition given this work by yearly contests, held in the several places of learning, adds distinction, which stimulates the contestants to do their very best. The fact that Elgin has never taken part in a season's work, without car- rying home her share of honors proves these assertions to be true, and leaves a record of which the future classes may well be proud. 92 393953355 MAROON QKGKGK lguhlir Speaking REATER efficiency " has become the watchword of modern activity, and education in its various departments is shaping to that end. The change in many High Schools from the passing of what is termed the "old-style elocution," namely, declamation and debate, to reading, natural presentation of the drama and extempore speaking, has come to stay, and with it an added interest and an increasing demand for public speaking work in High Schools. There has also come the need for careful planning as the best means to interest not only the talented few, but those pupils who need such work to find themselves. In the three branches of this work, reading, speech work and dramatics, any pupil should be able to help himself and feel at ease in making a speech such as High School pupils are called upon to make, and have self-confidence enough to have poise and dignity when asked to appear before an audience. Enough practical directions must be given to set the pupil well on his way to success as an actual speaker, and to prepare him to accept the instruction now being offered in the subject at all our best colleges and universities. The public speaking section of the English Department in Elgin High School tries to meet the demands of all pupils, whether they elect the course for practical help in business lines or for purely cultural purposes. Those that are especially interested in extempore speech work soon find that 'this style requires more general preparation and less particular preparation than at first imagined. He that uses it successfully must know how to construct the skeleton of a speechg he must know rhetoric, he must know grammar, and must have a ready vocabulary so that he may compose good English at the rate of one hundred and fifty or two hundred words a minute. He must be able to un- derstand his audience and read human nature readily. All this takes time. NVe need more time in our schools, to spend upon voice placement, upon proper breathing, upon bodily training, upon expressional train- ing. May we all have more patience in this slow development, for the teacher often only sows the seed, which sometimes does not result in a harvest until years afterwards. ' The meeting week after week of the same group of students to listen to the same familiar voices does not tend to inspire the speaker or enthuse the listeners, so a variety of work is brought in to break this monotony. This is one of the problems of the instructor, as the best results can be obtained only when the students evince an active interest in the work. The criticism aims to be always constructive rather than destructive, to emphasize the merits of the work submitted rather than shortcomings. Too much may produce embarrassment, which is disastrous to the best results. Faults are often due to inaccurate observations and need only to be pointed out to be corrected, and with a bit of encouragement splendid results are brought about. It is the aim of the instructor in this department to assist the pupil so that he will be able in speech work or reading to freely express his thoughts and feelings as effectively as in spontaneous conversation, in fact, more so. May we all do what we can in every case to work for systematic instruction covering a longer period of time, realizing that now, as ever, men are moved by the living word. 93 j An Appreriatinn HE editors wish to take this opportunity of thanking those who have in any way contributed to the contents of this book.

The recording of a series of events, not as a mere account of history but to make the record unique, attractive and valuable, is such a task. This is the work of the Annual Board. The table of contents of this year differs little from former Annuals of this and other schools. Even the greater number of ideas are borrowed and remodeled. The same is true of all similar publications. However, in the doing of this task the present Annual staff must be given credit for several things. Never before perhaps in the history of Elgin High School Annuals has there been such a fair distribution of work. No previous Annual staff has changed the form of the book and the style of treatment so radically. Yet in both these things the present book shows no decreasing interest. The main part of the work must, of course, be shared between the editor- in-chief and the business manager. More than ever before, this year's busi- ness manager has taken the work that belongs to him with excellent efficiency, and by so doing has left to the editor the chance, fully accepted, to do real editorial work. Very many college Annuals must resort to paying for their art work. There is not one page of paid art work in the 1915 Maroon. This has been made possible by the work of the three art editors. In fact, there is not a single member of the board of whom it could justly be said, " They did not contribute their share of workf' Some of the articles have been written by others than staff members. This is to the credit of the staff, as it shows the willingness to recognize the fact that others should be helpers when especially fitted for the particular work. The style of the book has been changed. Not that the present board felt they wanted to be original and different, but because they believed the changes were a distinct improvement. The faculty, the classes, athletics, are all treated in a different way from heretofore. The recognition of the Board of Education is a new feature. The book contains a larger number of pages, and the edition exceeds that of former publications. Probably no person connected with the school, more than the writer of this article, knows how much credit is due the staff for their efforts. From the editor-in-chief through the whole list of members praise and congratulations must be given. No one who has helped cares to take a fraction of the credit from them. If the members of the staff and the whole class will always put as much into the activities of their lives as the staff has put into this book, there certainly remains nothing but success ahead. E.

HE Mirror, the ofiicial publication of Elgin High School, was founded in 1898, as a small monthly. It gradually grew and improved: it passed all the stages of a monthly and was made a Weekly in 1909, with J. Leo Meehan as editor. Since that time great improvements have been made in size and general makeup. This year its financial standing was so good that the staff wanted to increase its size to six pages and to provide' for a cartoon each week. This plan was only aban- doned on account of the faculty objection on the grounds that the staff would have to take too much time from their studies. The year 1914-1915 has been an exceptionally successful one for the Mirror. In many ways it has been its most successful year. The Mirror has upheld its high position among High School Publications in every way. A slight disturbance was caused by the departure of the editor in February, but the effect of this shake up disappeared Within three weeks under the intelligent leader- ship of the new editor. There were many special articles and a special issue, the " Pink Sheet," which successfully roused enthusiasm for the East Aurora game. There were more cuts and cartoons than usual but not as many as the editors wanted. For the first time in its history the Mirror made its expenses. The comedy con- cert which has always paid the Mirror deficit was not needed, but it has become so universally popular that it was given anyway and the proceeds were put into the Scholarship Fund, which has hitherto existed merely as a name. The fund now con- tains ahout 3160. There were more paid subscriptions this year than ever before-over 450 as com- pared with the former record of 350, established in 1913-1914. 99 289393325 MAROON 535236352 ifigh Svrlinnl lguhlimtinnn N essential branch of most every live High School of today is the pub- lishing of a paper and an Annual. These publications have become very useful and necessary, both to the school in which they are published and also to schools with which they exchange. In their own school, publications serve as an organizing factor by working up athletic events, social and literary affairs. Students of different schools are brought in touch with each other by exchanging papers, so new and better ideas and plans are not kept in the school in which they originate. On account of the rivalry existing between our High Schools, the best literary talent is usually displayed in the publications. Signs of great journalists and writers of the future have been shown in Elgin High's publications, the weekly Mirror and the annual Maroon. The Mirror was first started as a weekly by the class of 1909. It has advanced steadily, as it is now equal to many college papers. A weekly in a High School is wholly dependent upon the support of the students. Our Mirror has always had this very necessary support. The students regard it as a necessity in their High School life. It is full of vim and enthusiasm and has the departments of a daily newspaper. When absent from school complete accounts of the athletic and social affairs of the week can always be looked up in the Mirror. So, as its name implies, the Mirror reflects the activities of Elgin High School. To take the place of the memory books and individual photographs of the graduates, the class of 1911 published the first volume of the Maroon. The Maroon has become more than a memory book. Each one is a summary of a year, counting toward graduation. It is a school book, not just a Senior affair, interesting the Faculty and underclasses as well as the Seniors. In years to come, in looking over the Annuals, many good times will be lived over again. Each affair and activity will be noted down in its proper place in the school years. As our publications have grown in the past, so will they continue to grow and advance in the future. Perhaps their greatest weakness is that they are not supported by the students from the standpoint of the contribution. They are royally supported by subscriptions, but what is needed is a paper and Annual edited by the whole school. Both would be greatly improved if every student, from the humblest Freshman up to the most arrogant Senior, would deem it his duty to contribute some news item to the Mirror, or idea for the Annual. May our publications develop in this way into a real school affair. .. 1 4 0 g 3 if W N 7 4 P Q 6 Q W ik 9 100 ,.,a 'N Q .- LZ - W .,,, 1 . 'E- -I-g.fLl'7" L l -L "'TQ ff? A . T 112 .ada-5. 3 f .

Mr. Mar- vin ran the jewelry store, but Mrs. Marvin ran the automobile. On this particular afternoon Mrs. Marvin stopped the automobile in front of her husband's store and entered. It was five o'clock. Mr. Marvin was sitting at his desk. " Hello, deariel " he said, and then noting a curious expression on her face, he exclaimed, " NVhy, what's the matter? " " Why-why, nothing, only-only-except that-didn't you promise to take Brother Cecil and me to the opera this evening? " " W'hy, yes," he answered, " why do you ask?" " XVell, you see "--and she sobbed-" I've lost one of the tickets." "VVell, if that isn't just like a woman!" said Mr. Marvin, in disgust. " How can you be so careless! Now I suppose I'll have to stay home and let you and Cecil go, for we invited him and so we can not tell him to stay home. Hut you ought to be ashamed for being so careless. How do you think I could ever succeed in my business if I were as careless as you are? " Next morning Mr. Marvin awoke early. His wife was still asleep, wearing off the strains of Tannhiiuser. NVhen he arrived at the store he found great commotion there. Wiggins, the head clerk, rushed up to him. " Mr. Marvin," he exclaimed, " that pearl necklace, which was on display, has been stolen! " Mr. Marvin gasped. The necklace was worth ten thousand dollars. He summoned a private detective, who soon arrived. He was in the middle of a conversation with him when Mrs. Marvin entered the store. Mr. Marvin turned pale. She would scold him terribly for being so care- less. She would confront him with his own words-" How could I ever succeed in business, if I were as careless as you are? " "Please go away," he said to her. " Can't you see I'm busy? " " All right," she replied, " only "-and she opened her purse-" here is a string of pearls that I borrowed from the store yesterday to wear to the opera!

"I think so, Ted," I replied. "I'm looking for a job now so as to make a little cash this summer." " Well, I've changed my mind about it," said Ted. " Cal, I have a scheme, a swell one, that beats Illinois State to a frazzle. Where are you headed for?" "I was going out to the shops to try for a job." " Now don't go looking for work until you listen to me," he said, turning me around and steering me up the street. "I want you to come home with me, and on the way up I will tell you what I have thought out. It's bound to be a money maker and l will give you Brst chance at it." " You have always framed up schemes, but none of them ever amounted to any- thing," I said, as we started up toward Ted's house. " I know," he admitted, with a smile, " but you don't need to worry about this fall- ing through. Now, look here, Cal, why should you go to Illinois State to be a civil engineer? Why should I put in four years there trying to be a chemist? After four years of monkeying around, spending your last cent, you get a diploma. Then maybe you get a job, and maybe you don't. " No, Cal, I have a better scheme. Think of how many men have become rich through some simple little thing that they thought out. Maybe it was a button, a puzzle, or a lamp chimney, but it brought them the dollars because there was demand for it." " Never mind the oratory, Ted," I cut in, impatiently. " Tell me about your great discovery." " Perhaps you won't think much of it at first, Cal, but I will tell you what it is- it's cats! " " Cats? " I gasped. " Did you say cats? " " Certainly. First, I am going to rent an empty barn, right across the alley from our back yard. I can get it for five dollars a month. It's sort of run down, but we can board it up pretty tight. Well, when we get that done we will get some chicken wire and make an enclosure outside for them to run around in and exercise. Of course, we will saw out sort of a hole in the barn so they can run in and out of the en- closure-" " I see, a big hole for big cats and a little one for the little-" " No remarks. Cal," said Ted. " All you have to do is listen. Well, after we put up the enclosure, we will have to make accommodations inside for about fifty cats, and then the hard work will be done." "I can't see what you're driving at," I said, doubtfully. " Well, it's this: There is a fearful demand in this town for cats. The factories pay twenty-five cents apiece for them, because they are overrun with rats. Society ladies buy them for pets and to have something for their children to maul. So if we can collect stray cats, feed 'em, wash 'em, and make 'em look nice, we can get good money for 'em. We can sell the fluffy ones for pets, and the dingy ones, that won't polish up, we will sell to the shops." " But how do you propose to get the things in the first place?" I asked, as we turned in at Ted's gate. ' "That's easy. Small boys will be only too glad to gather them up for a nickel apiece. I will look out for that part of it. What you must do is to take the cats and fix 'em up for market. But come and look at the barnL" It was badly dilapidated, but he insisted that with little repairing it would do very well. That afternoon Ted and I worked until dark and had everything about done. " Now, if you come round in the morning I will have a few cats here that we can start in on." The next morning I was at the barn at eight o'clock. Ted was there with half a dozen cats of all sizes and colors. Pu 104 39395 MAROON 35556368 "I got these since early this morning," he said, enthusiastically. " The kids will bring them in all right for a nickel. Now, Cal, I want to scout around for some more. I'll get you a basin of water and some soap, and you can be washing 'em." He brought the water and departed. I looked over the six cats, huddled up in a corner, and decided on the smallest. But as soon as it spied the water it seemed to divine my intention. It got away and I had to spend the next ten minutes catching it. I finally took the basin and cat out into the enclosure and put its feet in the basin. There was a wild scramble and I held the cat with main force while I soused it with generous spongefuls of water. I was just reaching for the soap when I was startled by a voice, " Here, young man, what are you doing to my cat?" I glanced up to see an angry old lady peering over the fence at me. " What do you mean by it?" " I didn't know this was your cat, lady," I finally said. " Well, it is, and give it to me right off." I did, and she left, muttering to herself. My hands were severely scratched. I would have given the whole thing up right then and there if I hadn't " chipped in" two dollars for lumber and chicken wire. Ted returned shortly. He had found a few more cats, but failed to get any orders for them. He was provoked to find that I hadn't washed any cats, and I told him to wash them himself. So far his scheme hadn't " panned out" exceptionally well. At dusk that day we had fifteen cats housed in the barn. Ted hoped for better success the next day. He asked me to stay at his house that night and I accepted. About eleven o'clock we were awakened by a fearful caterwaul. Ted and I listened for about fifteen minutes. Finally Ted crawled out of bed, saying that if he would let them into the enclosure they might quiet down. He did, but it didn't stop the howling. It seemed to come from all over the neighborhood. Then we both went down to the barn. We were astonished to find not a cat, either in the barn or in the enclosure, but we saw several walking the fences. " The scheme's all up, Cal. But how did they escape? " I pondered a moment. "Why, when you let them into the yard, they climbed the posts holding up the chicken wire and jumped down outside." He looked foolishly at me a moment and then burst into a laugh. " Say, Cal." he said, "I guess we'1l go to Illinois State University after all." C. U. P. 'l5.

There were big hopes this year of having another championship team, but East Aurora, the nnal winners, beat us 9 to O. Every one had to " hand it " to Elgin, though, as a better game between two high schools had never been seen on the down-river gridiron. As the scores show, all of the other old rivals went down in defeat by large scores, with the exception of Oak Parkg Joliet and Deerfield by over- whelming scores, and Rockford at last by the very decisive score of 24 to 7. The real success of the season was manifested by the raising of the some- what lax " Elgin spirit." Most of the credit is here due to the Commercial Club and Alumni, who reorganized the Elgin High School Booster Club. After Rockford's defeat, the first in twelve years by the Elgin eleven, it was not a hard task to get boosters for the East Aurora game, two weeks later. Three trains, of six coaches each, filled to their capacity, is a throng our universities might be proud to send with their teams. The weather permitted about two hundred auto loads to make the trip, so that when all had arrived it made one grand showing of " Elgin enthusi- asm." That and the Rockford game were the only games played away from home. Deerfield came to Elgin for the first game with a good recommendation, but it was not upheld by our huskies, who found many weak points in their make-up. They were given a fair trial, though, to show their worth, but failed. The following week a bunch of huskies came, who were better quali- fied than their predecessors. They hailed from some place in Chicago and went by the name of New Trier. But they were shipped back " unqualified." Joliet thought they had a chance for the State title, but after they had tested the Elgin movement they decided that it was altogether too fast, and that the lock-step was good enough for them. La Grange came to us unknown and came nearly upsetting the " dopef' This game was a closer one than the score tells. It wasn't until the last few moments of play that Elgin got her last touchdown and La Grange was mak- ing twenty and thirty-yard gains. But luckily they were always more than thirty yards from goal Qexcept oncej when they made these long gains. The call for practice brought out forty candidates, and as the season ad- vanced the size of the squad increased. Because of the large squad, many second team games were arranged as curtain raisers to the big games. The experience thus gained by the reserves will be of much value, as they will be our 1915 team. A There will be but few veterans back for the team next fall, but they, with the excellent string of second squad men, will make a team that will not have been surpassed. The Senior class this year has many gridiron heroes among its members. Meagher, Haligas, and Rider are three-year men who end their career as High School athletes. Brandt, Clendening, Etnyre, and Schlager are men who will be our mainstay next season. So here's to the 1915 team and the school for a championship next year! 109 ba , I E E. ea.

In the third quarter Etnyre made a place kick, making up three points. In the fourth quarter, Curly blocked a punt, picked up the bounding ball, and ran thirty yards for the first touchdown. After that nothing could stop the Maroons. johnny Meagher, who was shifted from end to fullback, was responsible for the other two touchdowns. " Let me take the ball " he would say, and with his bulldog spirit, crashed through the heavier line for long gains. Captain Day, Etnyre, Clendening, and the whole team were responsible for the victory. Every man crowned himself with glory, whether he started the game or was a " sub," as the reserve men's playing was as good as or even better than that of the " regulars." Defeat was turned into victory within a period of forty seconds after the last quarter started, when Curly blocked the punt and made the touchdown. The Elgin rooters went crazy with joy, while the Rockford rooters were silent and one by one began to leave the field, knowing that their team was doomed. Elgin's joy over the first touchdown was turned to gloom a little later when Clendening was injured and Etnyre was unjustly put out of the game by the officials' ruling. Elgin had the ball in the shadow of her own goal posts, but Day's punt, the longest ever kicked on the Rockford field, sailed sixty yards through the air and then bounded to within ten yards of Rock- ford's goal, where three Maroons downed the recoverer of the ball in his tracks. Rockford's punt immediately afterwards went off side on the thirty- yard line. There was a series of bucks by our plucky .Irishman, which finally ended on the other side of the goal line for the second touchdown. Near the end of this period, when Rockford resorted to open play and forward passes, Red Day leaped high in the air and intercepted a pass. Plunging through the line, he reached the seven-yard line before being downed. johnny was again called upon, and in four bucks carried the ball over for third and last touchdown. Rockford's touchdown was registered near the end of the second quarter, when they mustered and must have spent all their energy. A few minutes later, however, Daley, their left end, broke loose and had sixty yards of clear field ahead of him. Clendening, fifteen yards behind, gave chase, while the spectators held their breath. Gradually Clen gained, and when but five yards from goal threw himself through the air, caught the big end around the knees, and pulled him to the ground, with the ball on the one-yard line. Be- fore the rest of the two teams had time to line up, time was called for the end of the first half. Elgin outplayed Rockford in every department of the game, excelling both in defense and straight football. Rockford made practically no ground by open play, while Elgin recovered more than one hundred yards by that style of play. The forward pass was worked successfully by the Maroons ten times for a total gain of ninety yards. Those who share the honor of defeating Rockford are: Meagher. L. Haligas, Foster, Strohm, Mueller, Brandt, Rider, Coleman, Clendening, Day, Etnyre, Lenertz, Schlager, G. Haligas, Ryan, and Stewart.

The battle will go down in history as the greatest ever fought between them. From the flrst blast of the whistle, Elgin fought every inch of the way, and in only one quarter did the victors really have the best of the battle. In the first quarter both teams played a defensive game, neither using open play as taking any chances, being content with pounding the line. Elgin stood its ground gamely when Aurora continued to hammer the line with her ten-pound-to-the-man advantage of weight. Under the Elgin posts, after a stubborn resistance on the Maroons' part, Aurora abandoned the hope of a touchdown and Pritchard dropped back for a place kick. Curly Haligas broke through the stone wall line, as if it had been paper, and blocked the kick. But what was the most brilliant piece of defensive work, performed by either team, luck twisted into disaster for the team performing it. Betz, of Aurora, recovered the ball, and it was first down, Aurora's ball, on Elgin's thirty-yard line. The pounds of Aurora's heavy line and backs began again. Inch by inch the teams fought. Four downs, and Aurora made its yards with a foot to spare. Four downs again, with only four inches to spare with the ball on the ten-yard line. By almost superhuman power, the next four downs put the ball a half foot over the goal line for the only touchdown. The teams lined up for the kickoff, with Elgin receiving. Elgin failed to make her yards and the ball was given to Aurora in the middle of the field. Pritchard dropped back for a field goal, and booted a perfect one from the forty-two yard line. Aurora had taken advantage of its two chances to score, and made them count nine pointsg three for the field goal and six for the touchdown. Time and again Elgin worked the ball to within a few yards of Aurora's goal, but the final punch was lacking, or else penalties knocked Elgin's hopes glimmering. Elgin gained nearly one hundred more yards in actual scrimmage than did Aurora. Captain Day outpunted Reily of Aurora. Elgin's line was many pounds lighter than its opp0nents', but not one of Day's punts was blocked, while several punts and place kicks were blocked by Elgin linemen. After taking everything into consideration it looks like there might be such a thing as luck after all. - " Captain Day, Meagher, Rider, Clendening, Foster, Strohm, and Curly Haligas played wonderful football for Elgin. In fact, every one of Coach Tucker's athletes crowned himself with honor."-Elgin News. " It is no dis- grace to lose in the way the Maroons did. Every man on the team won the praise and admiration of friend and foe."-Elgin Courier. "VVhat Elgin lacked in beef it made up for in energy. They deserve great credit for the fight they put up, as the defense was good, and on the offense the Elgin boys did wonders, gaining twice or three times as much ground as East High."-- Referee Patterson, in Chicago Tribune. The Maroons selected to onpose Aurora were Meagher, L. I-Ialigas, Fos- ter, Strohm. Mueller, Brandt, Rider, Coleman, G.

B L 'S +5 x ka Q' 'CJ 115 3 52 MAROON Q5 K Zilurkrr, Smrrvnnfnl Glnarh HE success of athletics in Elgin High School was practically assured when Lawrence E. Tucker returned and took charge of the football squad last fall. That he was a welcome instructor was shown by the large number that turned out for practice. Some of the candidates were vet- erans and knew what was expected of them. Those who didn't know what it was to practice every night until nearly dark found out it was no snap, and one or two dropped out. But the forty odd candidates, that remained loyal throughout the season, deserve credit for helping the coach to bring out the best there was in them by creating so much competition. The success of the coach is not based entirely upon the number of vic- tories his team wins, but upon the showing of the team. Whether winning or losing, Tucker's athletes have won the name of true sportsmen. Clean, keen rivalry is taking the place of hatred between schools. Fair play is drilled into a candidate along with that old " bulldog fight," a seemingly difficult combination, but in reality a winning one. The scores indicate a successful season. Five football games were won out of seven played. Thirteen basket ball games were in the Maroons' favor, as against five losers. One baseball game was lost, while four were winners. The grand showing made by the Maroon Football Team reflects a great deal of credit on the coach. Playing against teams that were much heavier, the undersized Elginites showed the value of the coach's strict training rules. By observing these rules the players were in the best physical condition and could show the best of which they were capable. , The fine points of the game are what Tucker excelled in. Modern foot- ball is not brute strength and weight, but is mostly open work and trick plays. No other team could compare favorably with the Maroons on offensive play in any of the games. Elgin was weaker on defense, not because of lack of ability, or " bone-headednessf, but from the light weight of the team. As a basketball coach, Tucker has developed the best team Elgin High School has had. Most of the basketball team were football players and were able to begin the season in good condition. Training rules, though, were strictly observed throughout the season. Tucker drilled the team as a whole, and in that way one player was no better than another. There was no indi- vidual star, and no part of the team better than the other. The offensive and defensive players were drilled to work together as a machine. There was no weak link in this chain, and the result was a team that could not be beaten when it came to team work. Baseball and track are not supported well enough by the school to pro- duce the best, but Tucker has produced teams in these two branches of athletics that deserve the support of such a school as Elgin High. That Tucker has accomplished surprising results is evident by the suc- cess of the teams which had to be developed from the ground up. 116 2595-932,255 g MAROON ieigewts Eaakvihall Svvamnn HE record made by the football team was upheld by the basketball team, which played a schedule of twelve gan1es, only four of which were lost. The tourna- ment games are not treated here as scheduled games. The call for practice brought out about twenty-eight candidates. All of these were given a chance to show their worth before the "thinning out" process began. After this was finished there was a squad of fifteen left, all of whom were on a par as to basketball ability. The season started with a practice game at St. Charles and one with Dundee. Much spirit had been created over the latter game, because of the fact that Dundee had started her season while the Maroons were still drilling on the gridiron, and were consequently in better basketball condition. The score might indicate a one-sided battle, but such was not the case. was earned. It was a fight from start to finish, and every point The next game, however, was a regular tight. Geneva also had an early start in basketball and was ready to tackle anything, eyen Elgin. And they came nearly doing big things, too. With only two more baskets, they could have taken home the grapes. The next Friday night after Wheaton's defeat, the Maroons lost a hard-fought game to their old time rivals, East Aurora. The next night Wheaton was able to finish the game on her own Hoor, with only one basket advantage. Rockford journeyed to Elgin with two teams the following week, and while here was compelled to swallow two large doses of defeat. By far the best and most exciting game from Elgin's standpoint was that with Belvidere. Elgin was handi- capped, with two of her star players ill and unable to play. Incidentally this ma- terially benefited the team, as a change in the lineup was necessary. The game was a fast, furious one, neither team at any time having had more than a three-point ad- vantage. Seven times during the game the score was tied, and when time was called the score stood 20 all. During the overtime it was necessary to play twelve more 111i11utes before Elgin could get the two points which proclaimed her the victor. Four fouls were called during the extra session, two on each side. Only one was made i11 both cases, making the score 21 to 21. just as the spectators were about to go crazy with excite1ne11t, after a discussion among the officials, the winning basket was tossed by Dave Brandt and the most exciting battle ever seen on the Elgin iioor was ended. The undefeated Waukegan five did not come up to expectations, and were se11t home dOWl1 in the mouth with defeat Cnot de-feetl. The Naperville veterans can1e i11to the Elgin war zone, and with long shots suc- ceeded in dropping a ball into the heavily-guarded wicket enough times to win the battle. This pointed ball of theirs did no actual harm, but still it counted, too Ctwol. They left the same day, victorious, with only one prisoner fa countl to the good. The last game, a victory over the Alumni, helped a little to atone for the defeat by Rockford two weeks previously. The scores of all the games played are as follows: 1. Elgin St. Charles 11. 2. Elgin Dundee 21. 3. Elgin Geneva 24. 4. Elgin , Wheaton 22. 5. Elgin E. Aurora 29. 6. Elgin Wheaton 24. 7. Elgin Rockford 16. 8. Elgin Belvidere 21. 9. Elgin Waukegan 24. 10. Elgin Naperville 25. 11.

The one at Rockford was one of the several district tournaments held in Illinois, the winners of which played one another at Galesburg to decide the State championship. Freeport, the winner of the Rockford tournament, easily won the State title. Elgin survived the first two games, but was eliminated in the first semi- final by Rockford. The first game against DeKalb was a fast one, the out- come of which during the first half was doubtful. During the second period Elgin played in her usual form and succeeded in leaving her opponents way behind. The game ended with a comfortable lead of five points, the score being Z2 to 17. The Polo team was no match for the Elgin boys, and lost by a score of 45 to ll in the second preliminary game. The game against Rockford was a hard one to lose, and to the team Elgin had trimmed by a 39 to 16 score only three weeks previously. Both teams showed good team work, but Dame Fortune smiled on the Rockford- ites when they were forced to take long shots at the basket. The score of 26 to 21 shows that it was a close, hard-fought game, and that the outcome was doubtful until the last few seconds of play. During the next week a light workout was given the Maroons in prepara- tion for the Beloit tournament, held under the auspices of Beloit College. W'oodstock was the only. Illinois team entered besides Elgin. The others were strong Vifisconsin teams, among which was Beloit, the claimers of the State title. In the preliminaries Elgin played Delavan, a rather light but fast team. They put up a stiff resistance, but after the Maroons got their bearings on the long fioor they ran up a score of thirty-five points, as against their opponents' seventeen. Beloit and Elgin had been picked as the likely winners, and a game be- tween these two teams was expected to be the hardest fought and most ex- citing. Elgin played to redeem herself for the poor showing made at the Rockford tournament, and Beloit played to show that a Vffisconsin team was better than any Illinois team, as they had given Freeport their only drubbing of the season. The husky Beloit five used football tactics in the first part of the game against the smaller Elginites, but the speed of the Maroons woke them up to the fact that they had to play basketball to win that game. Better team work by the Maroons had not been shown at any time during the season, and they used it in making points. The first half ended with Beloit on the short end of the 11 to 8 score. The second half saw the Beloit team start with a rush that was intended to so bewilder the Maroons that they would " go up in the air." But again Elgin got started and they didr1't stop until the whistle blew. The score at the end was 24 to 14. The final game against Burlington was one-sided, as the score of 46 to 16 shows. The first half ended only 21 to 16, but to show they were not " laying down," the Maroons didn't allow a point to be made the second half. Two beautiful loving cups were presented to the teams that played the final game. The large one went to Elgin and the smaller one to Burlington. 119 3 QE MAROON Eii L-Tlntrrrltum Series HIS year's interclass championship race was more closely contested than in any previous year, owing probably to the fact that basketball U E " men were ineligible for the interclass series. The Athletic Board had good reasons for making this new ruling, but because of the fact that ninety per cent of the " EH men were in the 1915 class, Senior supremacy looked rather doubtful. All classes had excellent teams, but the Seniors by hard-fought battles finally won out. The Freshmen sprung a surprise when they held the Seniors to a 6 to 6 score in the first half of their game. The final score was not an overwhelming score, but shows that it was a good game. The husky Sophomore team ran away from the lighter Juniors in the next game. just to score the Seniors, the Sophs in the next game beat the Fresh- men by a much larger score than the Seniors did. To offset this apparent advantage the Seniors allowed the Juniors only three points, all of which were made on fouls in the Senior-Junior game. The next game decided who were to be cellar champs, and the Freshies decreed by a 25 to 18 score that the juniors should be. The deciding game between Seniors and Sophs was more of a football game than it was basketball. With three football men on the team, the Sophs were confident of winning, one way or another. But as a result of roughness, fouls were called, and by making a few free throws the score was soon in the Seniors' favor. The small score of 12 to 5 shows that the ball must have been held most of the time. There was a great deal of interest shown by the student body in this series, because the underclassmen had such good teams, and also because out of the four teams, men were to be picked for the varsity squad. Practically the whole Senior team was chosen to make up the squad with last year's letter men. And two of these received letters this year, showing that there was a host of good material. Another interclass series was held after this, in which the members of the varsity squad were barred from playing. Mr. Spillard had a beautiful loving cup made to go to the winning team, which has been commonly called the Spillard Trophy. These games were played at the school gymnasium, the Y. M. C. A., and at Unity Hall, the school Gym not being available all the time. The Sopho- mores won this series, and they claim they had to beat each team three or four times before the other team would acknowledge it. The real value of these interclass series is, that they produce from among the different teams the players who make up the school team. One other good thing about them is the creation of class spirit caused by the support they give their respective teams. Good loyal support is what any class needs, to be a success. A i The scores of the games in the school series are as follows: Seniors 18 Freshmen 13 Sophomores 22 Juniors 10 Sophomores 23 Freshmen 9 Seniors Z6 Juniors 3 Freshmen 25 Juniors 18 Seniors 12 Sophomores 5 120 M A R 0 0 N Q5E Q Haut Enlhrra nf thr Glup LlTTL.lQ over four years ago, the Athletic lloard of Control started the interclass basketball series which has been an important athletic event ever since. There are a few good reasons why lilgin Iligh School should have this ana nual contest. First, it helps to make the expenses incurred during the football season, the receipts of which are not always great enough to cover the expenses. Second, it brings out the best material in each class, from which the varsity squad is chosen. The most important reason, no doubt, is that it creates class spirit. This is essential to make a class a success in any way. A silver loving cup was purchased, which is to remain in the school un- til one class wins the basketball series for three consecutive years. As yet no class has done this, but each year the cup remains in the session room with the winners. The tirst and second winners of this cup in the 1912 and '13 series, were the stars in the 1013 graduating class. ln the two succeeding years. the 1915 class have had the cup in their possession. The cup is engraved each time and reads like thisg Series of 1Yon by Class of Series of XYon by Class of 1012 1013 1014 1015 1013 1013 1015 1015 121 5B Q?5 MAROON B55 2 57111112 H2151 Mamkrthall HHPI1 1906 1910 1914 RIRKLAND LUCAS CCap'1b RIDER 1Cap'1p ROVELSTAD XNIMPLEBERG L, HALIGAS COBB PERSCHMAN G.

Perhaps this subject will not be treated by the students of today like it is by those who were there at the time, but when we think that " championships " never grew in abundance at the High School it seems that the boys who brought these honors should be given a line of praise. Of course the work of the teams in other years is appreciated, even if the laurels didn't come to them, but space does not allow us enough, as it is, for remarks on the " champs." The 1900 football team held a championship, but from then until 1907, when baseball turned the trick, championship was a stranger. The season of 1907 opened on April 20 against DeKalb Normal. Elgin was defeated 13 to 1, but that didn't spoil her chances for high honors. Here's the record: E. H. S. 7, Alumni 4, E. H. S. 8, Genoa 43 E. H. S. 6, Elgin Academy 4, E. H. S. 9, Wheaton College 4, E. H. S. 6, Rockford Z5 E. H. S. 7, Beloit 03 E. H. S. 6, Rockford 4, E. H. S. 10, Elgin Academy O. The men who com- posed the team were: Holden 3d base c f, Hohenstein ss, Arnfield 1b and Zb, Dunne Zb and Sb, Goedert l f, O. Rovelstad r f, and c f, Sanderson c, Biesterfeld r f, H. Rovelstad p, and Larsen lb. That's the bunch who recaptured the Hag after seven long years of " watchful waiting," and they were a fine lot of boys. The 1908 team contained five members of the 1907 line-up. The boys who made up this aggregation, considered the best High School team ever picked and their positions: Holden l f, Hohenstein ss, Arnfield Zb, Dunne Sb, Lucas 1b, Schoonhoven c f, Burley r f, Sanderson c, Renfer p, Geister c, O'Connell and Watson, Helders. The 1908 schedule was a hardluck one as there were more cancellations that year than ever before in the history of the school, partly because of the fear other schools held for them. Rain also had a part to play. Hoyne H. S. of Chicago was the first foe on April 18th, and was defeated 17 to O. The team didn't play again until May 16th, when they trounced De- Kalb H. S. 9 to 0. Rockford was defeated 8 to 2, DeKalb Normal met defeat by a 6 to 4 score and then came the big game of the season, yes, of many seasons, with Crane H. S., title holders of the Cook County League. This game was played on the afternoon of commencement at the Asylum grounds. The time was set for 3 o'clock, but when the time came to start, Crane had not yet made an appearance. After a wait, word was received that they had gotten mixed up, but were on their way. It was 5:45 before the game started, and because eight of the boys were members of the graduating class, a seven inning game was agreed upon. It looked like sure defeat for Elgin up to the sixth inning, Crane was leading 3 to 2. It was a pitchers' battle and there seemed no way for either team to " squeeze " in a run. The Crane pitcher weakened in this inning and with bases on balls. errors, and a three base hit by Arniield, Elgin succeeded in getting four runs, making the score 6 to 3, which stood as the final count, again crowning Elgin with the State Prep school honors. People who witnessed this game declared that they have never seen a better ball game. The 1908 team deserves more praise than just " Champions," because a more faithful lot of boys would be hard to find and every one was a ball player. In a game they had the spirit the game intended they should have, and as the coaches of that year remarked, " It was a pleasure to be around them." EDVVARD M.

It doesn't mean that you can't go into a contest or a game just " bubbling over " with en- thusiasm and wanting your team to beat that other team if possible. That is exactly the preeminent idea that all of you should have in any kind of a con- test-beat the other team if you possibly can. But this is the question: HOW do you want your team to win? Do you want them to win at any expense or under any circumstances? No, you don't 3 you don't want your team to win un- less they can do so by fair play. Imagine now that we are all in a football game and the winners of this game are going to be declared the undisputed champions of the state of Illi- nois. On our opponents' team there is a mighty good player, a fellow who is blocking most all of our plays and gaining all the ground for his team. The idea enters our heads that if we by some means can lay that fellow out we can easily win this game and be declared the champions. On the very next play that fellow starts through the line with the ball, and about three of us eager fellows tackle him at once, one jumping on his head, another jumping on him with his knees, while the other twists his ankle until this line player is forced to be carried from the field. The game goes on and in five minutes we make a touchdown that determines the winning point of the game. Even if the officials declared the vic- tory ours it wouldn't really belong to us, we played dirty to win. Now let us look forward five years. That football game is history with us, and in fact most every one has forgotten it. What difference does it make now who won the championship live years ago? VVhat is gained by those fellows who laid that player out five years ago? I will tell you what they gained. They gained a knowledge of how to play unfairly and to use foul means to win. What did the fellows on the other team gain? They gained a knowledge of how to play fair, even though they were beaten in that game five years ago. The boys on one team learned to be dishonest and deceitful. The boys on the other team learned to be honest and play fairg in that way establishing a good sound moral char- acter, which is worth more than all the football games or any other kind of games that ever were played or ever will be played. Now, whether you are going to play football, baseball, tennis, golf, even marbles, or any game you are able to think of, always go into it with the idea of winning if you possibly can, but don't win if you have to play unfairly to do so. Sportsmanship is the application of the golden rule in the ethics of sport. Be a clean sportsman and always courteous to your opponents. Never hiss any- one. If you ever hear anyone hissed, just imagine yourself in his position. Never argue with the officials, because they are always doing their best and doing what they believe, in their own judgment, to be the right thing. Always keep your temper, even in the midst of failures and misfortunes. When you learn to be honest and play fairly you have won a great moral victory-a vic- tory that is far greater than any other kind of a victory, and a victory that bears on all the other activities of life. In this way you naturally acquire the courtesy that better prepares you for the duties of life, for being a more noble and up- right citizen, and a leader among men and women. ' LAURENCE E.

Here's to those valiant sons of the past, who, triumphing over many rivals, brought victory to Elgin. Here's to the loyal sons of today, who have continued the victorious career of the pastg who administered defeat on the gridiron to our ancient foes from the northlandg who brought the basketball cup from Beloit. May the spirit of sacrifice and devotions! manifested so much in the past, be increased with each succeeding year until the fame of Elgin High is higher than all others. May the athletes of the future hold high as the most complimentary privilege, the honor of Fighting for the best school in the land. May the " E " medal be in all senses an " honor E," never to be robbed of the honor, ever to be prided by those who wear it, never lowered, ever raised, and may full measure of honor belong to the school and to the wearer for all time. ww 3 Q MAROON K I rark HIS year the Athletic Board of Control, believing that the days of High School Baseball were numbered, and prompted by the spirit of giving the greatest good to the greatest number, abolished baseball and are fostering track. While Elgin has not been consistent in turning out good track teams, she has developed men who have brought both glory to themselves and credit to their "Alma Mater." Among these might be mentioned McOsker, Watson, Ansel, Patchen, Day, Holden, M. Clendening, Rust and J. Thornton. The first call for candidates brought out a large number of greer. but en- thusiastic men. All the classes in High School are well represented on the squad, with the exception of the Freshmen, which is a very deplorable fact, since it takes from three to eight years to develop that which is best in a man. They should start careful living and training in the grades and come out for track upon entering High School, in this way Elgin would be assured of having a successful team. The present Sophomore class contains many good track men, among whom are Clendening, Brown, Spillard, Southard, Keeker, Smith, Lindgren and Grant. Clendening made eighteen points in the Wheaton meet, winning the 220 and 440 yard dashes and taking second in the 50 yard and 100 yard dashes. Brown and Southard each won five points, surprising themselves as well as the spectators. Keeker outdid himself in his event. The Juniors have a devoted band in Duck, Perkins, McDonald and Oakes. They are showing up well and improving rapidly. The Senior class is strongly represented by Haligas, Thornton, Foster, Ross, Hanaford and Hannah. Foster made very creditable time in the 50 and 100 yard dash, doing them in SM seconds and 102 seconds, respectively. He made twenty-two points and was the individual point winner of the Wheaton meet. Thornton pulled a total of twelve points and upset the dope badly. Ross has developed into a strong athlete, and with more experience would be a valuable man. Haligas is a dependable point-winner in the weights. In the VVheaton meet, which has been mentioned above, Elgin romped away with it and showed considerable class. VVheaton has held the Dupage County championship for the past three years. Several of the men clearly outdid themselves in their respective events, showing how powerful a factor track is in developing a man and raising him to a higher plane of physical and mental endeavor.

Athletics and games have long been considered important for their recreative and health values. Their effect along these lines need scarcely be reviewed. The freedom from the restraint of the con- ventional dress, alone, gives rise to an exhilaration of spirit, and the girl who be- comes accustomed to the freedom of the gymnasium suit is not willing to be unnecessarily hampered in her daily dress, and so a tendency to healthful cloth- ing is firmly established, and right living is made more possible. She finds a greater opportunity to play, and a girl who can play well will work well. The following is quoted from a prominent educator: " It is the contention of persons who are unfamiliar with the possibilities and impossibilities of physical development, that athletics for women tend to make them masculine, and cause them to lose the charms of femininity. Nothing could be more untrue than such an assertion. The masculine girl is born and not made, strength and physique which approximate those of a man are occasionally found in a woman, but the gymnasium or the athletic field did not bring about the miracle. Girls can and do acquire strength of body, lungs and heart, grace of carriage and ease of manner in athletics, but they need not lose the womanly qualities or develop into an objectionable type which can be characterized as the ' athletic girl.' " Obviously, athletics are a means to an end, not an end in themselves. They should be conducted for the good of the number, and not for the purpose of making record-breakers, or championship teams. Girls engaged in athletics should acquire health, strength and grace. By grace we do not mean the ability to move the body in artificial exercises, but it is best shown in the natural ac- tivities of a healthy girl, trained so that her muscular judgment is almost perfect. She should gain presence of mind and self-control in which accuracy, coolness, quickness and good judgment are called into use. She learns the value of co- operation, and the meaning of fair play. Loyalty and a sense of honor are developed. She stands bravely by her team in defeat, congratulating the other team, or modestly accepting her share of the team's victory. .It is a great thing to learn to become a good loser. It is also a great thing to share victory and feel that some one else has done as much as one's self to win. Athletic games develop courage. It takes the finest kind of courage to be fair, to be honest and to be loyal-qualities absolutely essential to good team work. Nothing is more needed in our civilization today than moral courage. Training obtained through athletics is carried over into the business and social life after the girl leaves school. Other things being equal, she is or- dinarily a fairer competitor and better citizen. The girl who has learned through the experience of games not to do unfair things under the stress of competition has had the training which enables her to face temptations later in life, where the stakes involve large interests. " The responsible, reliable player becomes the same kind of citizen, for in games moral energy is stored up and habits estab- lished which govern the activities in later life." MARTHA K. AULIE, Athletic Directress. 135 G 1 all G Qplro' M-4 ZW tsl-- CEirln .dntrrrlzma Swrivn LARGE number of enthusiastic girls responded to the call for indoor baseball candidates. Nearly fifty Freshmen came out for the preliminary practices, and what they lacked in experience was nearly compensated for by their keen interest. Of this number, fifteen were selected for the team. The upperclass teams were practically the same as last year. Under Mr. 1-arsen's able coaching they were soon mastering the fine points of the game. Q 1 A series of six interclass games was played, each team playing every other team. The Senior team, with XYilda Logan as captain, finished the series with a perfect percentage. The Sophomores, last year's champions, came next with two games to their credit. The Juniors were victorious in only one of their three games. The Freshmen were hopelessly swamped, but they showed the best kind of spirit and loyalty throughout, and with this spirit and the experience gained in their first season they will surely make a different record another year. The Seniors won the championship without a question. They played throughout the series with only eight " men," Mildred Schriner having the mis- fortune to be out of school at just that time. XVe sometimes hear the defeated team say, " Oh, well, if we had had the last bat. the score would have been dif- ferent." But in each one of these games the last half of the seventh inning was dispensed with, the result being decided without taking advantage of " the last bat." Superior batting and fielding and splendid head work won the cup for the Seniors. The Senior team has had an interesting history. This is the second time they have won the honors in the interclass games. In 1913, when they were Sophomores, they captured the trophy. In 1914, however, they lost every game, but to their credit be it said that they took their defeat with as much grace as they had before taken their victory. Although they will not be here to compete with us next year, we know that the spirit which can take defeat as well as vic- tory, and victory as well as defeat. will make for success, whatever their field of endeavor may be.

Srirnrv ERI-IAPS no courses in the High School have changed so much in the last few years as have those of the Science departments. From the old time theoretical nature of these courses, taken to stimulate and develop the brain, and kept on hand as a peculiar kind of culture, they have traveled far, and are today the most practical subjects met in a four years' course of an up-to-date high school. The cry of the age is for practical things, things that can be a part of everyday life. So, with an earnest desire to help, the Science teachers 'have heeded the call, and have made many changes in the subject matter taught and the manner of its presentation. The enrollment in some of the departments has almost doubled in the past two years, and all show an increase. The combined enrollment in the Science courses this year is the largest in the history of the school, of which we are justly proud. In equipment, also, Elgin High School takes her place with the best. VVhen all the departments are taken together, one would have to travel far to find a school that is better equipped than ours. A closer view of the things that are met and analyzed in these courses is perhaps in order. In Physiology we still study the makeup of the body, but we also spend a large part of our time acquainting ourselves with how to live. A hundred thousand people died a premature death in America each year be- cause they did not or would not know how to live aright. The department of Physiology is pledged to do its best to stop this awful destruction. In Physiography we find a delightful course, that tells us how the crust of this earth came to be what and how it is, and the use to which each part can be put and the wealth that is found within and upon it. Q Botany teaches us the structure of plants and the laws that govern their growth, in such a way that it easily becomes a part of our gardening and farming, and also helps us to see the real beauty and value of flowers and plants in general. Zoology has ceased to be a study of animals about us, and has come to be animal structure and life, that we may the more fully understand and ap- preciate the body that each of us is given. In Physics we find a wealth of everyday useful information, varying from the study of the structure and working of a thermometer, to an appreciation of the power and value of man's most useful, modern ally, electricityg and the things employed in its use and the results obtained. Perhaps an explanation of more things in our daily life is met here than in any of the other sciences. No student should fail to take advantage of it. Last but not least is Chemistry, where the introduction of practical things is making it one of the livest and most helpful courses a student can take. It is to be hoped that our students appreciate all these opportunities and are making the best of them. H. R. PECKMAN. 139 MAROON Q Es Cflhr Glnmmrrrial Eepartmrnt OT more than ten or twelve years ago the young people who wished to prepare themselves for work in an office as bookkeepers, stenographers, or general office assistants, found it necessary to leave the High School and enter a private business school, where they were compelled to pay tuition. The High School was supported by the taxes which their parents paid, but did little in the way of preparing them for a practical life. Nearly all of the work given was in those courses which are necessary as entrance require- ments for college, rather than in those which aid directly in one's vocation. ' Today much of this is changed, and we find that the modern High School is paying as much attention to such vocational courses as manual training, cooking, sewing, and the various commercial branches as to any of the other subjects. - In our own High School we havea good example of this change illus- trated by the development of the Commercial Department. The commercial courses amounted to very little until within the past five years. During this short period, however, the department has developed with wonderful rapidity, until at the present time the young people of Elgin, who wish to enter the business world at the age of seventeen or eighteen, no longer find it necessary to leave the High School and attend a private business school which is in existence largely for the profit it makes. There has been a great growth, not only in the number of teachers and pupils, but the quality of the work has advanced also, largely on account of the fact that the Board of Education, acting on the recommendation of Super- intendent White and Principal Goble, has been very liberal in appropriating money for equipment and the hiring of a sufficient number of teachers trained in commercial work. Also, the textbooks of today are much better written than when little attention was given to the vocational subjects. Two courses are offered by the department, one taking four years to complete and the other two years, and the pupil may specialize either in bookkeeping or stenography and typewriting. The two-year course was provided for by the Board of Education in the fall of 1912 for the benefit of the young people of Elgin who are unable to remain in High School for four years, but who can spend two years in study in order that they may better prepare themselves for their future work. In the short course the pupils take only the more technical subjects, and of course are not as well prepared as where they spend the full four years in study. It is the aim of the department to give the pupil as broad a training as possible, hence, courses are given in commercial geography, economics, commercial law, civics, history, English, etc. These, together with the technical subjects, well fit him for as rapid ad- vancement in the business world as any school does, with the exception of the colleges of commerce which our universities have started in the past few years. H. H. LENHART. 140 2559535 MAROON E+ZE K Eihrarg PILE of bricks is not a home, and neither is a pile of books a library. A dictionary would, in substance, tell us that a library is either a col- lection of books kept for reading or consultation, and arranged for con- venience of use, or it is the room or building in which the books are kept. In general library work for the child, the chief aims are to give him an enduring love for good literature and to train him to use books to obtain needed information. Though in a school library the latter aim must of necessity be foremost, the former need not be omitted. Books rank next after companionship as a factor of influence in shaping character. Books read for pleasure do more to determine ideals than the books the boy studies because he must. The librarian believes that by ex- posing him to good books he will generally get the reading habit, and that this will often prove a safeguard later on. As a " side line," perhaps, yet in a very real way, the school library may help develop certain qualities, such as respect for public property, prompt- ness, industry, accuracy, neatness, and consideration for others. Elgin High School Library has forty-one hundred volumes. Possibly two-thirds of these are books for the history and literature departments. Of the five hundred and fifty volumes added during the present school year, two hundred were gifts. The classes studying English and American literature have been substantially helped through the kindness of Miss Abbott in lending books from the Gail Borden Public Library when our own supply proved in- sufficient. We receive eighteen periodicals, and those which will later prove useful are bound. No " story magazines " are permitted. Students may take home books or magazines after 3:30, and must return them by 8: 30 the next morning. The attendance has averaged two hundred and eighty, the highest record having passed well beyond four hundred. Periods vary, but rarely is there time for catalogue work except outside school hours. Routine work usually fills the time, and frequently the librarian has wished that she were twins, or even as the Rees trio. But there is compensation in the contact with interests of young lives, and the occasional touches of humor where none are intended are refreshing. Perhaps a Freshman, earnestly trying to do the teacher's bidding as he under- stands it, asks for " Pluto's Lives," " Classicle Mirths," or "Another Bulfinch by Gayley." "Arabian Knights " one small boy wrote on his slip, another wanted a " macadamized magazine." NVhether the verbal request for a book about mercury requires a mythology or a chemistry may possibly be deter- mined by the size of the boy. " Goldsmith's Deserted Traveler," " Picnic Papers," " a book by George Eliot and something about his life," a " Greek history containing the life of Matthew Arnold," are other requests. For the ideal school library the term given by some one, " Heart of the school," is not inapt. It should be in vital connection with every department of school life. E. H. S. Library is not ideal, but its aim is to reach a higher plane of work. It occupies a place of large responsibility and opportunity. CARRIE K. WILLIFORD. 141 2235253225 ' MAROON 533616 F5112 Manual Elraining Evpartwnt HE Manual Training Department gives a training in the manipulation of concrete materials and an education relating to the raw material in nature, and its manufacture into a finished product. Even though the boy may never make use of his skill in manipulation of materials as a means of livelihood, yet his knowledge of materials makes him more valuable in any commercial establishment having to do with a manufac- tured product. In the wood-working department the boys are given training in cabinet making, turning, and pattern making. They are taught the names and uses of the various tools and how to care for them, including the use of machine tools for the older and more experienced boys, how to correctly lay out and assemble a piece of workg how to properly finish various kinds of woods- whether the finish be oil, wax, or varnish. The methods of lumbering, milling, and marketing are given. The boys are taught how to figure a bill of material and its cost. Many beautiful articles are made in this department-some pieces are worth as much as thirty dollars when finished and would easily bring that if sold. The boy pays for the material used in the construction of a piece for himself, and is allowed to take it home with him. These pieces are all made with a definite aim in view-that of imparting training in fundamental tool processes. In pattern making, technical methods of constructing patterns for various machine parts are taught. Enough molding is given in conjunction to illustrate foundry principles and to test the pattern. The molds are cast in type metal. In the Mechanical Drawing Department the various problems in ortho- graphic projection are given, together with the application of these problems to practical work. Working drawings of shop projects constitute a part of the work of the drawing room. Tracing and blue printing are important features. Advanced pupils are given work in machine or architectural drawing. In machine drawing conventional representation of screw threads, nuts, bolts, and simple machine parts form the first part, while detail and assembly draw- ings of complete machines come later. Drawings of gas engines, speed lathes, emery grinders, etc., are completed. In architectural drawing, plans, eleva- tions, and details, together with specifications and other problems relating to building construction are given. The iron working department is a feature which has been added this year. In this department the boys are taught to use the engine lathe, drill press, shaper, and milling machine. Thread cutting, taper turning, spindle construction, and gear cutting are some of the problems undertaken. The Manual Training Department in the High School has two wood shops, a machine shop, and a mechanical drawing room. Four men carry on the work of this department, giving each boy instruction two double periods every day. DANIEL GREEN. 142 wwf mow-r T H E. c IN rx wno oanw TNAI SN A DE- X TN E.

And Elvira Kellman-she's a mouse- You can never hear her walk, Gr get a playful word from her, I never hear her talk. And Alice, now, why she's a Bird, VVith Hights quite uncompared, For she can lead you at a pace That no one else has dared. Then George McCarthy-he is an old Bear- Cross? No! Not cross is he When everything goes his way--oh, no, But cross when he's crossed, you see. He walks like a bear, and talks like a bear. VVe call him a bear when no one is near us, And laugh at his antics when he cannot hear us. And Ruth Hawkins, our Fox-as sharp as a whip- I've never seen Ruth, no, never caught yetg And then she's so playful, with varying moods. Oh, Ruthie's quite " foxy " you bet! And Ethel's our Owl, or at least she's our leader In all of our troublesome trials, And then she's so " smart-wise-whatever you call it - Really, she has theories by piles.
