HIS TOD. foil a"', ' , lI .
Four long years ago, there entered into this institution 173 poor, little, forloin.
green-looking Freshmen. The halls were full of lost, strayed, worried freshies, looking
for keys, lockers, and session rooms. However, it was not long before they became
quite a part of the mechanical working apparatus of the school.
The Football season rolled around and the beginning class of '19 did not fail to
respond. Class spirit was not lacking. Our heroes also rushed to the call of Basket-
ball. Much "pep" was displayed, resulting in the winning of the Spillard Tournament.
The next event was appearing in the limelight of the social world. This took the
form of "a glad rag party," where we became better acquainted.
Summer caime and we were dispersed for a couple of months.
We again returned, full-grown Ui, and laughed to see the struggling underclass-
men. Athletics progressed more than in our Freshman year. Again the Spillard
Tournament was won. Track was also added to our list. Our girls showed their loy-
alty in the reading contest. This year our social event was a "Stunt" party.
Our third year was our preparation for the high and mighty Seniors. This was
the stage where we lost some of our frivolous ideas and began to acquire dignity, The
election of officers was soon to take place. David Postle, our well-known hero, was
chosen president, Rollin Harrison vice-president, and Ollene Andresen secretary.
It was at this time that the United States entered the World War. Our motto was not
long in being selected, for we chose-"Over the Top." 'Colors followed-Blue and pur-
ple. This color scheme was brought out in the aviation caps that the class adopted.
As, is the custom, it was time for us to give the worthy Seniors a party, which
resulted in a "Costume Party." The Juniors appeared in the dramatic world, as ca-
pable of acting in the three Irish plays, 'iSpreading the News", "The Land of Heart's
I-Desire", and "The Pot of Broth." This end-ed our third year with "Blue and Purple"
Seniors! Seniors! Almighty Seniors! At last we have obtained the sought for
place of life. Bob Shirley was elected president, Marjorie Plummer vice-president. and
glornia Stewart secretary. The first thing we did was to choose the peony as our class
We were not'left out in doing our "bit" for our country. Many of the boys enlisted
in different branches of the service, while the girls did their share in the Red Cross
work. A French Orphan was adopted. The largest 'thing we did in our career was to
give, as a memorial, a large bronze tablet for those who fought and died for their
country. The Elgin Men's Chorus greatly helped our cause by giving a benefit concert,
and program to raise money for the memorial. The Seniors greatly appreciated it.
The Senior Class Play, "The Camouflage of Shirley" was a great success due to
the ability of the people who took part.
We, the class of '19, have the honor of being the first students to dance in the
Elgin High School gym. It was through our efforts that we secured dancing. Before
this time 'we enjoyed our dancing at the Watch Factory gymnasium. On the 29th of
May the Seniors held their class party and dance. It was a grand and glorious suc-
cess The .luniors followed with their party to us on the 5+th of June, which was ap-
We pass on from social to athletic life. This time the Spillard Cup was made se-
cure forever. The girls showed "pep" in introducing girls' basketball.
One of our well-known Seniors, Norma Riggs, won first place in oratory at De-
The Mirrors have been exceptional this year, due to the good Work of the staff.
Our Maroon speaks for itself.
We are proud to think that we lived up to our motto-"Over the Top," and may
we do so in the days to come!

Our High School journey now is done,
Our four short years ot' work are past,
The days of nleasiire and of fllll.
llave slipped behind us all too last.
We pause before an 011611 gate,
A strange 11ew world to us it seems
As lingering, W0lld8I'illg we await
FlllflHlllt'll't of our lligh School dreams.
We hate to leave you, clear old school,
Well like 11, little while to stay:
Hut some new task of life appears,
That ber-kons us upon our way.
Wl1at work awaits, we rannot know,
lint visions of our High Sc'-hool years
Will linger with us as we go.
lnto our future holmes and fears.
l+Zat'l1 new tlay brings new 2lChlt-'VtJlllQlltS,
May these tll'9tll1lri and visions last,
'l'o fulfil with fresh e11deav01'.
All wt-'ve hoped for i11 the past.
'I'o our lligh Svhool friends and teac'he1's,
Who have helped us on our way
With sincere ?lll'IJI'Qt'l2lti01l,
We extend our thanks today.
So good-bye, dear fellow students,
Now with courage and witl1 pluek,
May you follow our example
"Over tl1e Top" with the best of luek.

The Camouflage of Shirley
"The Camouflage of Shirley," a military play, was presented by the 'Class of 1919,
on March 5th and 6th, in the High School Auditorium to the largest audience ever
seen at a class play.
The scene was laid at "A Summer Resort on the Atlantic Coast."
The play opens in a tea room, with David Postle, the gallant captain, who scorns
a lady love, and Lieutenant Wayne tForrest O'ConnorJ a. groom of two weeks, arguing
on the question of war marriages. Impulsive Shirley Carlisle, who was portrayed ex-
cellently by Marion Huson, chooses a name at random and complications follow. Ruth
Hoyt, taken by Ruth O"Connorg Nell Chandler, taken by Ruth Leeg Rose Ross, taken
by Florence Renner, and Mary Lou Lester, taken by Janet Miller, all were fine in their
roles as friends of Shirley's. 'They all have a part in helping complicate matters.
Helen Schmidt, as Molly the waitress, was especially fine in her part. Gordon Helm
as Captain Scheppel, a German spy, starts the plot of the story by passing papers to
Jennie. another waitress, who is a mystery. Katherine Fletcher was particularly fine
in this role of waitress, especially in the dramatic ending of the scene when she faints
in the arms of Captain Calhoun.
Act 2 is laid in a deserted cabin. Shirley and Annette fthe bride of Lieut. Wayne,
otherwise Norma Stewarti are locked in the cabin where they have been brought-by
Captain Scheppel, the German spy. Annette is the humor of the situation-lamenting
for her husband "Billy Joe." Shirley plays her wits against those of the spy and
finally outwits him with the aid of Captain Calhoun and Neil Rutherford, who appear
at the opportune moment-the part of Neil was taken by Leonard Lindahl. .
The third act opens in a "Sun Parlor" with Mrs. Richmond, Annette's mother,
ttaken by Cora Dot Ohdei greeting her guests with a remarkable story. As the plot
unravels Neil is found to be a Secret Service agent and a slacker no longer. Jennie
proves to be .Jeanne Dupreez, a French spy. Bettina, who was played by Ollene
Andresen, saves the day by helping 'Captain Calhoun realize he loves Shirley and all
ends happily with Shirley wearing a service pin of her own.

Over one hundred and eighty Freshmen assembled for their class party
in the gymnasium, March 14th. Much credit must be given the little ones,
for they joined in the fun each and every one and enjoyed themselves im-
mensely. The gym was decorated in the class colors.
A fine program was staged by members of the class.

out this party, '22 will be a class to he proud of.
The Komecly Koncert
lntensely amusingi throughout, the Komedy Koncert was a scream in
many parts and very nearly professional in other ways. The Mirror usually
backs the Concert for benefit of the animal but exception was made this year
and proceeds were turned over to the Senior Class Memorial.
The program opened with the Giehsa Girls dressed in many-hued jap-
anese kimonos: Elizabeth Hayes, Margaret Lundgren and Georgia Graves
were soloists, supported by a chorus of Sophomore girls.
The "Theatrical Bureau" was staged by Chi Rho Sigma girls. Espec-
ially meritable was the acting of Gladys Myhre as the "Stenograp'her." A
chorus of four gave an oriental dance. "Out of the East."
"The Backward Six" was an act enjoyed by everyone for its cleverness.
Mr. Mikado was staged by the Mirror Staff. lt was a burlesque on the
IQI8 operetta "The Mikado."
T'he "Chicken Show" was a dainty and pretty act given by some of the
junior girls. Louis Nolting as the Farmer. and Helen Batterman as the
Old Hen, were especially fine. Cecile Higgins as a "yellow Bantam" danced
in her dainty costume of yellow tulle.
Overseas Revue was a clever bit of acting. Cooties seem to be the rage
nowadays ! A
"Much Ado About Nothing" was given by a few Sophomore girls.
Madeline Hazlehurst as the man of the hour was very good in her role.
"Going Somewhere" was a scream from beginning to end-Nanjean
Shepherd as the old farmer, and Edna Wienholtz as his wife gave a touch to
the Comedy that evoked much laughter.
"The Sailors' Revue." given by the Senior Girls' Glee Club was very
delightful as to music and harmony. Kathleen Frances and Ellen Roberts
gave a fancy dance.
"The Tickle Toe" was danced by Cecile Higgins and Donald Brown, well
known dancers and pupils of Miss Dorothy Yingst. Their dancing was es-
Least, but not last, was the "Minstrel Show" which was a capital pro-
duction featured by the singing of "Kisses" by Mme. Geraldine Lomar, who
was disclosed as Reginald Marlowe. Mr. Stanley Boughner as Interlocutor,
Henry Rice, Robert Shirley, Clarence King and Lloyd johnson as end men.
kept the audience in a roar.
The jazz Band should be complimented on its fine playing between
acts which was highly appreciated.
We can all justly be proud of our Komedy Koncert of IQIQ as it proved
to be one of the most successful Concerts ever staged at the High School.

Champions! Of course we are only beginning, but our stand has been so brilliant
we have high hopes for the future. When the -basketball season opened it was the
first for Elgin High School girls. We began our practice in earnest, finally choosing
four major teams from the four classes. All the games played were closely contested,
but when the finals were played 'between the Juniors and Seniors, it was necessary to
play two games to play off the tie, as the iirst game was a tie after two overtime
periods. The second game played was a fast and interesting one 'from start to finish.
Both teams were keyed up with excitement, first Seniors scoring, then the Juniors.
When time was called the Juniors had won the Championship.
Review of Girl's Athletic Club
ln reviewing the Girls' Athletics for the year each class may be equally
proud of its team. Each contestant entered the games with good sportsman-
ship throughout the season.
The Girls' Athletic Club was formed to insure unity and promote inter-
est in girls' athletics. Every high school giirl is qualified to join the club. .-Nt
present there are seventy-five members.
In May a reception honoring the 1920 basketball team and the IQ23
baseball team was held. Following the volleyball series a banquet was given
by the Club inviting as their guests the IQZI championship team. The Sopho-
more captain, Margaret Lundgren, received the trophy in behalf of her team.
Miss Newman, as toastmistress, called upon the other captains, who
responded with toasts honoring their worthy opponents.
The president. Minnie Labahn, and Miss Stearns are responsible for the
success of the program and banquet.
The Freshman and Sophomore teams were close rivals for basketball
championship, each having an excellent pitcher and heavy batters. The
younger classmen finished the tournament with the highest percent.
The Seniors are working hard for a championship before graduation day
arrives. They are backing Vera Lasher to win the tennis tournament for
The juniors took the opportunity of having IQZO engraved on the bas-
ketball cup by winning every game they played. Much credit was due to
Helen Batterman and Alice Dunn for careful guarding.
A school team was picked consisting of Grace Eggert. Georgia Graves.
Minnie Labhan, Evelyn Carbaugh, Helen Schmidt and Helen Batterman.
The school team challenged an alumnae team which was formed by Miss
Jessie McCornack, iI5. The result was a victory for the High School
team with a score of 15-9. On the same evening a baseball game was played
between the upper and lower classmen, won by the former.

A Plea F or Good Discipline.
While the final object of military training is to win battles, it affords
many valuable advantages to the individual participant, even in the develop-
ment of its elementary work as conducted in our schools and colleges. It is
excellent as a physical exercise, causing the mind to think quickly and clearly
and the body to respond with equal rapidity and with precision. It teaches
unity of action, regularity and accuracy. It encourages neatness of apparel
and personal cleanliness and inspires love of Country and honor for its flag,
but by far the most important feature of such a course of training is the
advantage to be gained through the strict compliance with good military
In this country where personal liberty is so broadly extended, and at a
time when the youths of the country are so strongly encouraged in self-inter-
est and self-advancement, there exists a dangerous tendency towards extreme
selfishness, abuse of personal power and disregard for law and order. Mili-
tary discipline is directly opposed to such a tendency. It is the habit of
obedience to recognize authority that teaches respect for superiors and the
rights of others. It cannot be too strongly recommended as a part of the
early training of the young man of the present day.
Discipline in a military organization not only possesses the above valu-
able advantages in itself but is also the essential factor upon which all other
features depend for their success or failure. A military organization cannot
exist without discipline and its efficiency and success will be directly propor-
tionate to the degree in which this discipline is maintained.
The maintenance of good discipline depends upon the certainty of sub-
stantial punishment or reward. In most schools and colleges extreme breach
of discipline is punishable by expulsion or failure to pass. In the regular
army, federal prison and firing squad are the final means of insuring obedi-
In the Cadet Corps of the Elgin High School, unfortunately, nothing
has, as yet, been provided as a foundation for discipline. It owes its ex-
istence, such as it is, at the present time, entirely to the spirit and interest of
the cadets themselves. So long as the compliance with discipline is pleasing
to the individual cadet, so long is he responsive, no longe1'. The work can-
not always be highly attractive and pleasant, yet wihen it is not so, interest
lags and discipline weakens. In general, greater benefit can be derived from
work involving effort or even hardship than that indulged in for pleasure
only, but any attempt to gain this greater benefit in this way, is almost sure
to react against the discipline in the Corps as now supported.
Military training in the High School is comparatively new and because
Page One Hundred Four
it is new, greater interest and enthusiasm in the work is now prevalent
zunnng' the students than will he ptmssilmlc tu hnld fur the future. ,Xs Z1 nov-
elty, it will soon cease to attract. .X marked decrease in interest is now
strongly evident as each schoul year advances, resulting' in a corresponding
decline in discipline. New work, more attractive wurk, must he continually
introduced if interest on the part of the Cadets is to he the only means nf
upholding discipline, and this snpp-nrt, at the hest, is lmnund to he unstable and
short-lived. Left under present ctmditinns, the true value of Military
'llraining' is curtailed, its nperatinns handicapped, and its continuation for any
length of tiinc, made dnuhtful, hut nn the nther hand, if prnvided with a
true foundation for the maintenance of discipline our lllilitary 'llraining

Northern Illinois Conference
The Northern Illinois Conference or "Big Seven" was resumed this
The football schedule was drawn up but owing to the enlistment of
players on teams of the Conference and the spread of intiuenza it was de-
cided to abandon the football schedule.
The basketball schedule, however, was completed. Rockford won the
"Big Seven" championship in the heavyweight division with a perfect per-
centage, while Freeport was the runnerup. VVest Aurora finished third and
Elgin was next with two victories and four defeats.
In the lightweight divisions Freeport was victorious with Elgin a close
second, having won five games and losing one.
Following are the standings of both heavyweight and lightweight bas-
ketball in the Conference for the season of 1918-1919:

Review of Heavyweight Basketball Season, l9l 8-l 9
Our heavyweight basketball team finished their schedule with nine vic-
tories and seven defeats, making a percentage of .561
The suqad, captained by "johnny" Clark. put up a brilliant fight during
the season but fell into bad luck in conference games, winning two and losing
four, Finishing up fourth in the race.
lVith only Captain Clark back, and having to deal with inexperienced
men, Coach Jacks turned out a very good five.
Our team met its defeats agiainst recognized strong teams. VV. Aurora,
Rockford, Joliet and Loyola are some of the best in the state. The contest
with Belvidere surely would be awarded to Elgin because of the ineligibility
of Gilroy and the treatment received by our fellows.
On February 28, March 1 and 2, the Northern Illinois High School Dis-
trict Tournament was held in our gymnasium. About twenty teams com-
peted in the play. Mr. Dope had it all figured out for Vifest Aurora but
VVheaton eliminated them in one of the largest surprises of the tournament.
Dundee High School copped the honors when they won a hard game
from our team. It was anyone's game until the shot of the gun, when Dundee
was ahead 27-2 5. Credit must he given our team for they deserved to win,
but luck broke against them.
The best individual player probably was "Sherby." He made nearly
half of Elgin's points and was picked on the all tournament live. The won-
derful guarding of Capt. Clark and Rovelstad won them places on the all'
Tournament team. O'Connor, who was shifted to the heavies, was also a
great man on the offense. Bloomfield, Britton, Farwick, Meagher and Agfnew
all helped to make the team a success with brilliant playing.
VV ith Bloomfield, Britton, Farwick, Agnew and O'Connor back, pros-
pects look good for a championship team next year.

Lightweight Basketball Season, I9l8-I 919
Tl1e Lightweight Basketball team had one of the most successful seasons
this year. They won ten games and only lost three, which is a record to be
proud of, losing only to such strong teams as the Lake View Preps, Cham-
pions of the Suburban League of Chicago, and Elmhurst, a heavyweight
They opened their season with a victory over XV. Aurora, 31 to 18.
Everyone saw that our lightweight team would be up among the leaders in
the Conference race by their wonderful playing.
The following week they traveled to Freeport, and due to stage-fright
and playing on a slippery Hoor, had to lose to Freeport 21 to 7.
Following that defeat you see our fellows moving along in great shape.
Geneva, E. Aurora, La Grange, De Kalb, Geneva, XVest Chicago, Rock-
ford and Joliet were swapped up in great shape. No one could do anything
with the Rowe, XValter, Meagher, Sayre and Clendening combination.
The Rockford game was the closest one played with our boys playing
without a fault we won from the Red and Black IQ to 18.
The success of the team is due to the coaching of Mr. E. Miller. Due
credit must be given him, for he turned out a wonderful combination.
Next year should witness the most successful year for the heavies. This
fine working together again next year would "eat up" anything in the con-

The Spillard Tournament was played in place of the Interclass Tournament, before
the remllar basketball searfon this year. The scores were exceedingly peppy and the
interest shown was very enthusiastic.
The Seniors, twice winners of the cup before, were out to get it the third time, and
get it they did. Due credit must be given the team as their work was far superior to
that of the underelassrnen. They won easily by a score of 36 to 26.

Major and Minor Leagues
VVith the coming of the basketball season came' the opportunity of all
basket tossers to show their skill.
Coach Jacks came through with the policy "Athletics for all." Ile or-
ganized twenty teams and that each team be composed of ten players, making
a total of two hundred athletes taking part.
This stirred up enthusiasm among the students and gave nearly every-
one a chance to play and develop our members physically and mentally.
Two leagues were formed, the Major and the Minor. A weight limit
of 130 pounds was set for the minor league.
In the Major league the Bullfrogs and the Dubs played for the cham-
pionship. After a very close game that showed brilliant flashes of basket--
ball, the Bullfrogs won by the score 24-13.
In the minor division four teams were tied for the honors. The Lucky
Strikes, Night Hawks, Dummies and Buffaloes. All four are teams that can
give a good account of themselves and the outcome is one to be looked for.
The names of the teams which competed in the major tourney are: Tanks,
Dubs, Elephants, Bullfrogs. Cubs, Wreckers, Tigers, Rippers, Ramblers and
In the minor tournament: VVhirlwinds, Dummies, Arrow, Little Giants,
Cornets, Buffaloes, Sox, Nighthawks, Bull Dogs, Lucky Strikes.

Review of Heavyweight Football Season, l9l8
The football season of 1918 was a great success, not only from the number of
games Won, but also from the financial standpoint, considering the weather handicaps.
About forty men responded to the first call for candidates of this number, only
five were veterans and due to enlistment we lost Captain Parker, O'Flaherty, Cook and
The influenza epidemic gave us a set-back as well, but still 'Coach Jacks showed
his ability and put out a championship team.
Our first opponent 'was the Harrison Technical team from Chicago. We won a
hard fought game from them by a 19 to 14 score.
We then went to W. Aurora. Probably a little over-confident for we only suc-
ceeded in tieing them and "the officials" 7 to 7.
And the following week we played Lake Forest Academy and were administered
our flrst and only defeat of the season. We completely out-fought our rivals but were
penalized .every time we gained and had to be satisfied with the short end of a 20 to
On the next favorable week-end, Batavia came here, thinking they would run
away with us, but our boys snowed them under in the resemblance of a track meet,
Our old rival, E. Aurora, was next. On a muddy field we took their scalp to the
tune of 26 to 0. The next 'week-end is-aw our warriors at Joliet. We were determined
to give them a licking, but with a little hard luck we received the short end of a 19
to 14 score. We were going at a rapid gait and no team could stop us, but the fol-
lowing week .Iohnny and Louis contracted the "Flu" as did Jacks, "Art" joined the
marines, and we were a sad bunch going to Rockford on Turkey Day.
With snow and hail intermingling with rain, with mud six inches deep, we held
them to a scoreless tie, completely outplaying the larger and heavier Red and Black
warriors. We thereby stamped ourselves as "real" contenders for the championship
of the state.
With Bloomfield, Barnes, Far-wick, Britton, Clendening, Nolting and others back
next year, prospects look exceedingly good.
Here's to the championship team of 1919.

The Lightweight Football Season
Although, under great hardships and handicaps, the lightweights must be given
great credit for the scrap they put up. On the 28th of September the team was defeated
by Dundee, a much heavier ard experienced team, by the small score of 8 to 7. On the
following week the team journeyed to West Aurora and, after hard luck playing, we
again went down to defeat, 12 to 7. Mooseheart, the team that should have played the
heavyweigh-ts instead of Batavia but instead played the lightweight team, was held to
the small score of 13 to 0. The lightweight team put up a scrappy iight and deserve
credit for such a game,
With the mud about a foot deep and water enough to take a bath in playing on a
field -the lighbweights had a heap of fun in washing the Auroran's faces to the tune of
36 to 0. It was at this time that the epidemic of 'iFlu" came upon both teams and sev-
eral of the lightweights were shifted to the heavyweight team. With almost a green
team, but nevertheless a determined one, -the "lights" went to Rockford. The weather
was cold enough to make anybody stay home and decorate the mahogany. The snow
was falling fast and the fellows were rolling in the faster but still we held the much
heavier Rockford team toacomparatively low score. The lightweights will be the future
heavyweights next year and great things are expected of them.

Track Season, l 9 l 9
As this year's Track Captain, I was requested to write a few lines about
the success of the track team.
This ye3r's team has done very well, taking into consideration the poor
weather for track.
The boys came out with the spirit that the older members used to have.
and they were all determined to make it a success.
The time came for our first meet with Lake Forest. XVe were abso-
lutely ignorant of our opponents' ability and also of our own team in a dual
meet with the unfavorable weather conditions. But we traveled to Lake Forest
and were defeated by a score of 86 to 33. We were all pleased in our showing,
as Mr. Jacks then had an idea of who and what kind of a track team he
was going to have to work with. Well, he sure found some point-getters
in C. "Clenn," Nolting, Ryan, Britton, Farwick, Butler, Riggs, Rice, Perkins,
Todd and King. We came home feeling pretty big and then a week later
we went to DeKalb, to try our luck in the "Big 7U meet on 'May 17.
To tell the truth, Elgin showed up better than any other team on the
field for its crew of younger fellows outclassed the older fellows from the
Elgin placed second with 29 points and Joliet first with 4o. The neces-
sity of running so many heats stopped some of our men from getting first
On May 24 we journeyed to Joliet to see if we couldn't defeat the Con-
ference winners, but we were somewhat disappointed as we came out on the
small end of a 71-46 score.
We have been handicapped the whole season because we haven't had a
track to practice on, whereas the other schools have their cinder tracks.
Elgin High has done as well as could be expected considering so many
handicaps and I, as Captain of this year's track team, sincerely send forth
to next year's Captain all the best wishes and success of the year.

Suggestions in the Elgin High School - Maroon Yearbook (Elgin, IL) collection:
