HE Class of '21 began climbing the stairs of fame to its wonderful ca-
reer, in the Freshman Year. Of course, there were obstacles to over-
come and disappointments were numerous, but nevertheless the present
Senior Class slowly ascended the stairs.
To test our loyalty to Uncle Sam, we, as Freshmen, were asked to buy a
Liberty Bond. As a result, the money fairly rolled onto Miss Ellis' desk
and a fifty-dollar bond was purchased. Students not only contributed freely
for the bond, but also were very generous to the Red Cross and other chari-
Probably the event most memorable to the minds of the Seniors is that
dear little Freshman party we had. VVe were a bashful bunch, which was
particularly noticeable when the boys took their places of refuge on the west
bleachers of the gym and the timid young girls sat opposite, gazing at them
with hungry, " why-don't-you-start-something " eyes. The boys did brighten
up a bit, but oh, dear! it was only to climb the ladders and poles to see who
could be the biggest monkey. Miss Haskins rescued the girls from their
corner, and they took turns seeing which one could be lifted the highest, and
testing their ability as First Aid workers. It is too bad we did not call it our
Freshman Circus, but the refreshments were a little out of the ordinary to
call it such. We had the dearest little animal crackers and ice cream. More
fun was had in looking at the animals than eating. The lights went out at
10:00 P. M. and the tired children went home to their mammas and papas.
The Sophomore Year was probably the most exciting. VVe did not have
the customary Sophomore party ftoo much Freshman partyj, but we did do
something, and that was to adopt two French orphans. This meant money,
but the class was so enthused that the orphans were adopted immediately.
The members will probably never forget the pictures of the two children
which they received. They were brother and sister, typical French children,
of the school age. A quiet, simple life was enjoyed in our Sophomore Year.
Standing at the top of the stairs of fame was Harold Newman, looking
like a beacon-light in all his radiance. It has always been a mystery as to how
he got there, but it has been rumored that he was too bright for his class and
they thought they would try him in our class. Wie turned to look down the
stairway for prospective strayers, and we saw Eldon Pflaum trying to take
two stairs instead of one in order to walk as fast as the rest of us. Georgia
Graves and Margaret Fairchild being athletes outran the rest of us for a seat
in 311. That was only the beginning of our Junior career, for we found that
we had a very able and popular young man in our midst. In organizing our
class and choosing officers, Gordon Abbott was elected president. Following
in rapid succession, Phil Howard, who seemed to have bounded suddenly into

the limelight, was elected vice-president. Edith Player, our example of a
perfect student, was elected secretary. All of them were able, satisfactory
Our troubles soon began in our Junior Year, because we found that we
were beginning to grow up and had minds of our own. Of course, every mind
did not think the same way. Our class meetings might have been likened to
a Jewish School, especially when the matter of colors, class sweaters, etc.,
presented itself. After a half dozen or more ballotings took place, scarlet and
black finally won a favorable place.
VVe entertained the Seniors of the year '20 at a dance which proved very
successful. The class picnic which was held at Pottawatomie Park, St.
Charles, Illinois, was well attended.
The Junior Play must be mentioned. It was well presented under the
careful direction and coaching of Mrs. Cowlin. The play, as we all remember,
was " The Fifteenth of January."
Then came the great Senior Year, which made our heads fairly swell
with all-mightiness and pride. NVe probably thought we had troubles in the
Junior Year, but my! how the troubles and trials did appear this year!
The first important step we took was to elect officers, that we might hold
class meetings and get down to business. After a close balloting, Harold
Newman proved to be the strongest contestant for the presidency. Margaret
Fairchild followed as vice-president, and Bessie Larson as secretary.
Under this competent body our class moved along rapidly, but not al-
together smoothly. Our one cry was money! money! money! It was voiced
in the halls, class rooms, streets, and any available corner, but we felt that in
order to carry forth our ideals we had to use every means of raising the ready
cash. XVith this money we planned to leave behind us a fitting memorial and
a pleasant thought of a good time for each Senior, that we and our Alma
Mater may long be remembered. Vkle feel that our motto, 'T Deeds Determine
Destiny," has been lived throughout our career.

Let us sing a song for old Elgin High,
May her honor and praises never die.
'Tis a song of our work and a song of our
And it rings in our hearts on this parting
So " Goodbye," Alma Mater, to thee,
lVe part 'cause it just has to be.
Dear old High School we now say " Goodbye,"
And we leave you with many a sigh.
XVe have loved every year
That we've spent with you here,
And the teachers and class mates so true and so dear.
VVe have come to the parting of ways-
May thy spirit live on thru all days,
And the ties that bind us,
lYill always find us,
In memory of old Elgin High.
May the years that are coming bring joy and peace
To you, Elgin High School, and never cease.
May vic'try and glory gladden your way,
And crown you with blessings forever and aye.
lYe leave you with hearts that are strong,
And memlries will bring back this song.

The Class of '21
How pleasant in the years to come,
XVhen all have gone their chosen ways,
To ponder over work well done,
By classmates of our High School days.
From Freshman year, when hopes ran high,
To Senior year, with work complete,
XVe found each one of us must try
To forge ahead and not retreat.
All this we think of ere we part
To struggle ,mid the tasks of life,
For very soon we all must start '
To " play the game " with honest strife.
XVe know not where our paths may lead
In life's great race for things worth whileg
XVe only strive by word and deed
To conquer hardships with a smile.
Live right! For that is all one needs
To gain life's sweetest charityg
A royal road of goodly deeds,
For " Deeds Determine Destinyf,
And some day in the distant years
XVhen all of us success have won,
XVe,ll not forget to give three cheers
To our brave class of '2l.

" Hello. Is this Maizie? XVell, this is Henrietta. XVhat do you
s'pose? XVarren Kenyon has asked us to write the class history, and we
gotta have it in by Tuesday! "
" Oh, ye cats, and today is Saturday! XYe'll have to hustle some. lVhat
will we write about, anyhow? "
" VVell -"
"Ch, I know! XVe could tell about the different things that happened
during our three years. I'll always remember the day when I Hrst heard Mr.
Goble say, ' just a few announcements this morning., "
'K Yes, and we Freshies used to be teased by the ' upper ' classmen about
getting lost when trying to find our different classrooms."
'K The first thing we really did was to adopt our French orphan, wasn't
it? All were so proud when they brought their twenty cents, don't you re-
member? H .
" And then we had our big, successful Freshman party. Wasn't that ex-
citing? All the boys sat on one side, and the girls on the other, until it was
time for refreshments. Then they went in couples, because they couldn't get
any until they were in partners. Didn't it rain, tho, when we went home? "
" VVe won the indoor baseball championship for girls, too. VVe all had so
much fun at the Girls! Athletic Club banquet! "
K' Wlhat happened in our Sophomore year? "
" There were some of our Sophs in the different Clubs. Let's see: There
was the French Club, Hi-Y Club, Natural Research Society, Choral Club, and
some of the best singers of the Glee Clubs were in our class. They just
started some of those clubs, you know."
'K Oh! and the movies! Weren't they a fine help to the school? Especial-
ly on Thursday mornings, they were kind of a treat from the ordinary speech,
didn't you think so? "
" Yes, but the best things of all were the school Dancing Parties, if they
hadn't been so short. That is where some of us first learned how to dance."
" Quite a few of our class were in the High School Orchestra. VVe don't
want to forget to put that in! "
" And then our Junior Year! That's the best year so far, but I suppose
our Senior year will be eventful, like they always are. It seemed so good
to have some one looking up to us instead of having to look up to some one
else. W'e organized our class for the first time. VVarren Kenyon was elected
president, and Virginia Stewart secretary. It seems so much easier to do
things that way, I think. lVi!1 you ever forget how we got out of school to
sell tags to help send the team to Stamford? They can't say the Juniors didnit
work then, and then it was one of the Juniors that thought of sending tele-
grams to cheer them up."
" Oh-and don't forget our movies! They were some of the most suc-
cessful ever given, and we made more money on them than any other class
ever did. Wallace Reid-isn't he fine? "
" I should say so, and Enid Bennet is, too. This is the year we bought
our sweaters. They tell us they don't like them, but that's just because they
" The athletics in High School wouldn't be much without some of the
boys of our class. They have won honors in football, basketball, and track.
One of the Juniors has more E's than any other boy in the High School, to
say nothing of those given to other Junior athletes."
" W'asn't the Junior Play fine? Everyone took his or her part so well.
The teachers that coached them surely deserve much credit. It was also
" I had just a ' circus ' at the picnic. Especially when the ants got into
the salad. Everybody went home tired, but all had a wonderful time."
"Everybody spruced up for the dance. The Seniors said they surely
appreciated it, and everyone had a good time. The faculty remarked that it
was the most successful ever given at the High School. VVe spent all the
money we made on the Junior Play and movies for orchestra, decorations,
refreshments and favors."
" That ought to be enough, and don't forget what we talked about, or
we will be out of luck. Good bye! "
'A Good bye."

HE pupils that entered Elgin High School in January and September
of the year 1919, considering their past record, have formed a good
foundation for the last two years of their high school life.
Their freshman party was said to be the most successful in many years.
A program was held in the auditorium, which revealed some very good class
talentg and dancing and refreshments followed this, The sophomore party
was considered by everyone even better. After the program, in which many
of the pupils took part, the teachers pleasantly surprised the sophomores by
presenting Miss Geister, who, with her games and stunts brought much
laughter from the audience. XVatching the dignified " Ding Dong " Meredith
walk around with a glass of water on the back of each hand was as amusing
as seeing Mr. Goble hypnotized so he couldn't stand up alone. The students
enjoyed themselves and certainly appreciated the teachers' interest in the
success of the class parties.
As to the studies and work of the class of '23, they have a fine class spirit
and work hard and industriously when it is necessary. If they keep up their
good record, they will make a fine junior class next year.

HREE cheers for the class of 1924! They are the finest group of Freshies ever
known-full of pep and wide awake. They admit that they were a little
" green " at first and had difiiculty in finding session rooms, locker keys, and
lockers, but they soon improved in this respect.
During the month when ghosts and witches prowl, the Freshmen held their party.
An interesting program, consisting of stunts, readings, piano, violin, ukelele, and vocal
selections, was given in the auditorium. After this they assembled in the gymnasium,
where they danced. Refreshments were served, and caps, whistles, and confetti were
distributed. The party was chaperoned by the Misses Ellis, Pierce, Clark, Chelseth,
Smith, Davis, Kimball and Mrs. Jolley.
In November they held their first class meeting. Their class colors, bright blue
and black, were chose11 at that time.
One day the upper classmen were surprised to hear that a Freshman Club had
been organized under the auspices of Miss Ellis. The officers are: President, Eloise
Ellis: Vice-President, Leonard Engdahlg Secretary, Virginia Hawkins, a11d Treasurer,
The purpose of this club is to create better class spirit. A school committee, of
which Max Hayne is chairman, was selected to give mutual help in school work. The
name of the club is a mystery. the initials are " C. D. E." Can you guess what they
The Freshies are very proud to claim Louis Semeny, one of the star players on the
basketball team. He is a star now, and just think what he will be when he is a
" Royal Seniorfl
They are also proud to say that the third and fourth places in the ninth and tenth
grade reading contests were taken by two girls of the class of l24.
Thus far they have shown a fine spirit, and if you don't watch out they will break
the record of E. H. S.

B0 S ATHELETICS
LGIN was highly fortunate in securing the services of Paul Church as
coach for the athletic teams of Elgin High. Coach Church is a graduate
of Purdue University, and made a name for himself in all kinds of ath-
letics in that institution. Church won a place on the " Big Ten " all-confer-
ence basketball team as running guard.
At the start of the football season last year Coach Church had some of
the best material that Elgin has had in many years to build his teams from.
A review of the season in all the athletics showed his superb caliber of teach-
ing. If the coach is unable to continue his services at the high school, his
loss will be keenly felt by the school.

An all around good fellow and good coach. Coach Leon Haligas built
excellent teams out of green material. He is a graduate of the Elgin High
School in the class of 1914. The lightweight teams finished near the top of
the lists in both football and basketball. Coach Haligas understands the dif-
ferent sports thoroughly and it is hoped his services will be with us next fall.
VVe are proud of the teams that these two coaches turned out for the year
of 1920 and 21.
XVithout this man's services through the football and basketball season
of 1921 Elgin would have never come out in the lead as they did. Mr. XYag-
goner lived with the fellows, putting the fight and spirit into the boys that
was necessary to win. WVhile the team was at Stamford, Mr. XVaggoner was
always on the job to show them a good time. As has been reported, he will
probably not be with the teams next year. His loss will be greatly felt by
both the faculty and in the sport world.

Elgin High School was fortunate this year in having a bunch of athletes,
both for football and basketball, that were determined to do all they could
and give their best for their school. ln football this determination carried
them through the season with only two defeats and these defeats by narrow
margins. Although four of the mainstays of the team graduate, prospects
for a good team next year are bright.
Getting a good start in basketball, this same never-say-die spirit brought
them to a tie in the Big 7, through the sectional tournament and to the State
tournament where they were eliminated in a hard fought game.
At present prospects for a winning track team are good and with the
same support that was given football and basketball, the track team can make
as good a showing.

of the State. It is one of the nnest organizations in Illinois for pro-
moting clean sports for the prep schools.
The schools represented in the conference are Elgin, Rockford, Freeport,

basketball and football, each member of the conference plays every other
team twice, while in track one 'I Big Seven " meet is held, with every team in
the conference represented.

LGIN HIGH SCHOOL won the football championship of 1920, or as the
saying goes, we came out on the " long end of the horn." At the finish
of the conference schedule Elgin and Rockford were tied in the num-
ber of games won and lost, Elgin and the Red and Black eleven each winning
five and losing none. Rockford refused to play off the tie, stating that it was
an " uncommon thing to play off a tie."
At the start of the season Elgin looked like a good conference contender,
many of the old experienced men being back in the lineup. Under the careful
training and coaching of Coach Church the team was progressing into a
strong and well-balanced team.
Our first game was booked at VVest Aurora, where Elgin won 13 to 6.
Aurora was a strong and a powerful foe for the Maroons, but they conquered
by the old spirit of E. H. S.
Freeport was next on the list, playing at Elgin. Elgin also ran up an
easy score on the Pretzels, 26 to O. Elgin had improved one hundred per cent
since the preceding two weeks.
DeKalb, the next victim, was the war cry of the Maroon warriors. The
game was played at the Barb City amid a steady downpour, Elgin winning
17 to O.
Rockford-that one word meant worlds to the Elgin fans and players.
Well, the score came out in a 3 to 3 tie, and mighty lucky for the Rab eleven.
This game was the most important game of Elgin's schedule.
Something on the order of a track meet was held on the local Held when
the Maroons met the weak Joliet team. The final score ended Elgin 58,
East Aurora fell before the terrible attack of the local team 34 to 7. Both
East and VVest succeeded in scoring the only touchdowns of the five Elgin
Thanksgiving was another big day for the Maroons, when they trimmed
Decatur 6 to 0 in the hardest fought game of the season.
Nine rounds for the champs of 1920. Next year a new squad will be in
the field, with few old men.

Elgin was forced to accept four defeats when the final standing was
completed. Elgin won from XYest Aurora and DeKalb. In many of the light-
weight battles more interest was shown by the smaller teams than was some-
times displayed by the major teams.
Coach llaligas and Captain Howard put out a well-balanced team, con-
sidering the green material they had to work with. Between twenty and
thirty candidates turned out for the first workouts of the season.
The opening game featured a clash with XVest Aurora, Elgin trimming
them 22 to O. By the looks of things Elgin had an excellent chance, but the
real teams were yet to be played.
Freeport came to Elgin for the second game of the season, and walloped
the locals 21 to 6. Elgin was outplayed and outgeneraled in this hard-fought
DeKalb fell 6 to O before the attacks of Haligas' charges on the Barb
City's home held.
The less said the better about the game with Rockford, because Elgin
lost, 72 to 0.
Joliet put the skids under the Maroons on the home field 13 to 6. It was
one of the hardest-fought games played by the lightweight squad through
East Aurora came back with their old-time luck and won 6 to 0 in the
Hnal game of the season for the Maroons. Next year more green material
is in line for places on the squad. as practically all of the old men finish on
account of graduation.

the conference season is as adequate as the selection of
an all-conference team. Following this article is printed the complete
heavyweight schedule for 1920 and the complete results of all confer-
ence games in the major division of play.
An aggregate attendance of 50,000 people witnessed the conference games
last year. Interest in the contests was far from dormant, and the Hnal title
spurt between Elgin and Rockford was watched by an interested crowd of
fans throughout the conference circuit.

HE basketball season of 1920-21 was a great success, both hnancially
and for the record of the teams. Elgin was tied for first honors with
Rockford, as in football. At the blow of the whistle for candidates
about twenty appeared with plenty of promising material. The squad was
finally sifted down to ten men, all of them able to hold their own in any tight

Elgin was victorious by a 27 to ll count, thereby ousting Aurora from the
The second game was a complete surprise to the Freeport fans, Elgin
coming out on the long end of the score 27 to 23. This was the first time in
six years that the Freeport boys had lost a game on their home Hoor.
East Aurora tried their strength against the Maroons in their third
game and lost 4l to 31. Practically everybody on the squad got a chance to

42 to l. Nothing like this had happened before in the history of conference
Elgin's old enemy, Rockford, was the next on the local schedule, and
Elgin trimmed them in the last two minutes of play 32 to 28. Baker, star
forward and captain of the Rabs, went in the game in the last two minutes
of play and bagged four baskets, nearly spelling doom for the Maroons.
Elgin struck a jinx down at the prison city and lost a chance to be un-
disputed champs of the " Big 7." By this defeat Elgin was forced to accept a
tie with the Rockford aggregation.
Those back next year are Britton, Semeny, Swanson, Butler and Stevens.

the lightweight division started had the minors made such a good showing.

tories gave the Freeport crew the undisputed second place title.
Rockford thirds the list and DeKalb ends the count without a single win.
Elginls two jars came at Freeport and Joliet. The minors lost to Free-
port by a 30-5 count and the majors took the medicine at Joliet 34-23.

The Maroons were never headed. First on the program was Dundee, the
best team of the tourney according to the dope. Elgin succeeded in hanging
a crepe on their door 37 to 28. Next came Antioch, the dark horses, another
victory was the result, final score being 45 to 11. That was the largest defeat
handed to any of the schools. Xilauconda worked to the semi-finals and met
the Maroons confident of victory. But Elgin completed their unbroken chain
of victories by a score of 43 to 16. The final game was played with Wfheaton,
a strong team, undefeated and full of pep, but Elgin conquered and won the

FTER a grand send-off the Maroons left on their hard-fought road
down State. The State tourney was held this year at the University
of Illinois. Thousands of enthusiastic fans from all over the State
spent some of their hard earned dollars and accompanied their touted teams
to the big event. Rockford, Batavia and Elgin were represented from this
end of the State, while southern teams were everywhere with their laurels
Elgin's first game was with Marion, one of the dark horses of the meet.
VVe were defeated 15 to 14 by score but not in the brand of basketball. For

NE of the greatest events of the football season came to the Maroons
when they won the right to play Stamford high, an eastern champion-
ship team. Rockford and Elgin were tied for the conference winners,
but the Rabs refused to play off the tie, therefore Elgin was the champ team.
Stamford had completed their schedule without a defeat and were considered
the all around team of the eastern schools.
It was one big day when the Maroons pulled out of the A. E. Sz C. station.
Fully nine hundred of the one thousand pupils turned out at the train, with
nearly as many town people. Before the boys left it was necessary for the
high school management to raise a large sum for expenses besides the one
thousand dollars guaranteed by the Stamford management. The business
men of Elgin were called on to help out and they sure responded with a will.
Enthusiastic members of the Senior and junior classes turned out day after
day selling tags for the team, ably assisted by Manager NVaggoner.
Attorney "Mike" McNerney, formerly of the high school team, way
back in the hundreds, accompanied the team, acting as coach, because of the
illness of Coach Church. Manager Xlfaggoner, Kendall XYhite and "jake "
Jacoby, local reporters, also went as first hand news returners.
December fourth was selected as the big day and a beautiful day it was.
Amid the mad cheering of hundreds of former Elgin people the Maroons were
forced to accept the small end of a 7 to 0 score. But don't count the game on
the points for the Elgin lads were far superior in the finer brand of football.
The score occurred in the first five minutes of play when the big break of the
game went to the home team. Never once after that first score were the
eastern lads in danger of repeating. VVell, the deed is done and it will go
down in history as the greatest battle Elgin ever put up against an eastern
" Tom " .Tones hnished off the great trip by taking the boys around to
all the places of interest in the big cities. Bus and taxi rides were a tame
thing for Maroons after seeing the great Hippodrome of New York City,
and other fine things. Next year we all hope that the 1922 team will be as
great a success.

UIUC interest was shown in girls' haskethall this year than ever he-
' fore because of the keen competition that was displayed. The sea-
son started out with a great deal of pep and vim when the Senior
athletes played the Juniors and forced them into the hackground hy a count
of 28 to 4. The juniors, however, deserve some credit, for it niust be ref
inenihered that " Stewie," the bluniors' niain point-getter. was forced to leave
the floor heeause of an injury: hut nevertheless. the Seniors, team-work
took theni off their feet and made them sit up and take notice.
The Senior-Sophomore game came next on the schedule. The Sophs
put up a scrappy hattle against their superiors, and they had a 'A neverflay-
down-till-you're-dead'l spirit, which proved their grit. The final count of
this game was l7 to 0 in favor of the Seniors.
The Freshies made it hot for the .luniors in the next game, and they
managed to conie out on top hy dropping' in a field goal in the last ininute
of play, nialcing the final count 9 to 7.
Then we had the Cireen vs. the Red and lilaclc. The Freshies were game,

HE Senior Class Play, presented on the ninth and tenth of December
under the skillful direction of Mrs. Cowlin, proved a success from
every standpoint. VVritten by the Hon. James M. Barrie, the story
deals with the English nobility and their relationship to their servants. This
is a difficult play for amateurs to attempt and the Senior Class may well be
proud of the cast who so ably played it.

The Admirable Crichton is the butler in the household of Lord Loam
The story shows his transformation from a mere machine to a masterful
character who commands those who formerly had commanded him. This
part was played with almost professional skill by Harold Newman.
In a tropical storm Lord Loam and his three daughters, the Hon. Ernest
VVoolley, the Rev. Treherne, along with Crichton and Tweeny, the little
kitchen maid, who adores Crichton and furnishes much of the humor in the
play, land on an island far out of the path of ships, when Lord Loam's private
yacht is shipwrecked.
Here on the island all is changed. Crichton takes charge of the situation,
putting the whole party at work under his direction and solving all the diffi-
culties which arise. Two years are spent on the island, during which time
Lady Mary and her two sisters are changed from idle, luxury-loving parasites,
to lively, fun-loving girls, thoroughly capable of caring for themselves. Crich-
ton is the natural leader of the party and all the others are eager to serve
him, even Lord Loam, his former master. Romance in the play is furnished
in the love affair of Lady Mary, who is called Polly on the island, and Crichton.
They intend to be married and the whole party are having a celebration one
night, when a ship's light is sighted. This changes everything and Crichton
realizes that now they can return to England there can be nothing between
Lady Mary and him.
In the last scene they are back at Loam House with Crichton again the
servant, showing that while nature ruled on the island, convention must rule
Credit should be given the Art Department for the effective scenery.
The furniture used in the play was furnished by the VVait 81 Ross Company.
Music between the acts was furnished by the High School Orchestra.

E.H.S. THE MAROON l92l
HE Annual Komedy Koncert of April l5, was a success from both an
artistic and a financial standpoint at the evening and matinee perform-
ances. The stunts put on by various clubs and groups were very clever
" Bill Hicks' Country Store " was the name of a charming act presented
by the girls of the Pi Omega Nu sorority. The 'fadvertisement people "
awoke on the stroke of midnight for their nightly revelry. The act featured
both pretty dancing and good singing, including a Dutch Dance by Audrey
Schultz as " Old Dutch Cleanser," and a solo by Lolita Dueringer, the " Jello
Girl." Margene Moore also won fame as a toe-dancer.
"Julius Caesar " had many clever and unusual ideas, especially in the
way of scenery. The audience thoroughly appreciated the realism of the
The " Inverted Sextette " was at hrst alarming, but the audience was
finally assured that the sextette really was not inverted.
In "Grasshopper Center " was laid the action of a playlet presented by
a group of three Seniors, Bessie Larsen, Gordon Abbott and Harold Newman.
Six ,Tuniors presented the K' junior Follies," an act of good dancing, sing-
ing and acting. Virginia Stewart, the soloist, sang " Alice Blue Gown " and
" The Girls of My Dreams."
" Min and Smythe "consisted of a before-the-curtain act by Milton Burns
and Floyd Smith. Members of the faculty and student-body were both fav-
ored by many well-tinied jokes.
The "Gypsies, Propheciesfl by a group of Freshmen, gave admirably
clear views into the futures of members of the faculty and certain students.
The " Fourth Dimension H cleverly illustrated some of the modern ap-
plications of the science of Physics in the form of mysterious revelations in
mind-reading through the medium of a real skeleton.
" Playfulness in a Garden " consisted of an unusually pretty and dainty
dance by Verna Nash and Lenore Schroeder.
Ernest Hanaford and Thomas Plumleigh clearly showed in their 'K cur-
tain-act " that they had escaped from a " Musical Asylum." Their collection
of instruments was unusual and entertaining, to say the least.
A scene in Elgin's "to-be " hotel was represented in the act, entitled
ae Gifford " by a group of Sophomore girls as pretty maids and bell hops.
The Spanish Club act was a charming presentation of singing, dancing
and pretty costuming, including a Spanish duet by Eleanor Larkin and Mar-
garet Fairchild, and a Spanish Dance by Charlotte Harvey.
As 'K announcers " in the Koncert of 1921, Joe Goldman and Everett Gage
were unusually clever and entertaining. Their remarks were especially ap-
preciated by the audience, applying directly, as they did, to the faculty and

S the need for effective speech grows in the business and professional
world, so does the number in the High School Public Speaking classes
increase. This year shows an increase both in the number taking
Public Speaking, and in the increase of interest in the various contests spon-
sored by this department of the High School.
An enthusiastic crowd tried out for the first contest of the year, the
Northwestern University Declamation Contest, held on April 1 and 2. The
winners at the try-out were: Lockhart Shultz, Elizabeth Hayes, Mary Elliott
and Harold Newman. Lockhart Shultz and Elizabeth Hayes were sent to
Northwestern, Lockhart winning a place in the iinals.
The next contest of the year was the Kane County Extempore and Decla-
mation Contest. The Declamation contest was held first, at Geneva, on
April 22. Mary Elliott was our representative and gave as her selection
" The Cry of the Childrenf, by Elizabeth Barrett Browning.
The Extempore Contest was held at St. Charles, on April 29. Our team
was composed of Margaret Davery and Madeline Hazelhurst. Margaret
Davery was the first junior ever to win a place on one of our extempore
teams. The East Aurora representative won first place at the contest, Made-
line Hazelhurst winning second place for Elgin.
The last contest of the year will be held on May 27 at Aurora, and will
be an extempore and reading contest. The extempore team will be composed
of Madeline Hazelhurst and Fidelia Frantz. Of course, we hope we win first
place in this contest. As yet the representatives for the reading contest
have not been chosen, but in this, too, we hope to win.
lVe have greatly missed the contests formerlv held at the Universitv of
Chicago and at Lake Forest, but we hope they will see lit to continue them
in the future.

S a fitting conclusion to a successful year the Glee Club presented, on
May 5th and 6th, the comic opera " The Fire Prince," by Henry Had-
ley. It was received with delight by large audiences on both occasions.
Much of the success of an opera such as " The Fire Prince " depends
upon beautiful costumes, scenery and graceful dancing. Under the direction
of Miss Abell and Miss Logan these details were handled in a way which left
nothing to be desired. The librctto and music directed by Miss Ellis and Miss
Mary McKay were played in a hnished and pleasing Way.
The plot of " The Fire Prince " is highly romantic and imaginative. In
the land of Pantoufiia, there is, in the royal family, a son Prigio, who is so
absolutely clever as to be detested by all the people of the land, including the
royal family. He does not even believe in fairies who play an important
part in the lives of the Pantouflians. But deep in his heart Prince Prigio
wants to find some one to understand and love him. He finds such a person
in Rosa, the daughter of the Spanish ambassador, who not only understands
him but even makes him feel stupid, which has never happened before. His
love for her is so great that it compels him to go out and kill the Fire Drake,
a horrible monster which menaces the land of Pantouiiia.
After winning the name of the Fire Prince and also the hand of the fair
Rosa, there remains nothing to be desired except that the Prince be less
clever and more agreeable. This is solved when the Prince puts on the
wishing cap, for he now believes in fairies, and wishes to seem no cleverer
than other people.

HE Second Annual Concert of the musical organizations of the high
school was given December l6, 1920, in the auditorium under the direc-
tion of Miss Mary McKay.
The first part of the program, which was given by the choral club, was
made up of Christmas songs. The club deserves especial praise for the ap-
preciative rendering of the difficult chorus " Glory to God" from the Mes-
siah. The recitative in this number was sung by Lolita Dueringer. Preced-
ing each song appropriate selections from Hamilton Mabie's "A Book of
Christmas," were beautifully read by Elizabeth Hayes.
The high school orchestra, directed by Mrs. Luella C. Pierce, delighted
the large audience with several selections which were well chosen and well
played. Following this the Second Girls' Glee Club, which shows great prom-
ise for the future, won the approval of all with a group of humorous songs, in-
cluding the " Old Squeegeef'
The universal favorite, " To a W'ild Rose," by McDowell, was sung with
artistic finish by the First Girls' Glee Club and was followed by a rollicking
negro melody " Ma Curly Headed Baby."
Concluding that part of the program given by the Glee Clubs, the First
Boys' Glee Club sang a " Hunting Song " and "Carry Me Back to Old Vir-
ginny." The boys sang with fine expression and an earnest desire to please
in which they surely succeeded.
Perhaps the most enjoyable feature of the evening was the Com-
munity singing of Christmas songs which followed the selections by the
Boys' Glee Club. Everyone sang heartily on the old familiar songs, and left
the auditorium with the feeling of having thoroughly enjoyed an evening of
music and song.
ITH its membership almost doubled the Choral Club has just com-
pleted its second year. Organized two years ago under the super-
vision of Miss Mary McKay, the Choral Club has become one of the
most popular organizations in school. It is composed of the members of the
First Boys' and First Girls' Glee Clubs. The officers of the Choral Club are:
Gordon Abbott, president, Harold Newman, vice-president, Lois Zimmerman,
treasurer, john VVeller, librarian, and Helen Rovelstad, accompanist.
One of the foremost events of the season was the annual Choral Club
banquet which was given March 21. Members of the Second Boys' and
Girls' Glee Clubs served. Elaborate decorations, toasts, songs, and dancing
featured the evening.
The Fire Prince, a modern operetta, was given May 6. The play was a
popular one which was presented throughout the country.
Enough appreciation cannot be expressed by the members of this club
for the remarkable ability of their leader, Miss McKay, the interest she has
taken in all the activities and the tremendous amount of time and work de-
voted to this organization.

During the year of 1921 the First Girls' Glee Club has made great progress under
the capable leadership of Miss Mcliay. Many new members have been added. cou-
tributing much to the ability and success of the club, which has appeared publicly on
several occasions, including the Grant school benefit program, the Holy Trinity Church,
and the Graduation Exercises of the class of 1921.
More time and effort were spent, however, on the operetta, "The Fire Prince." than
any other event of the year. This was received with such enthusiasm by large audi-
ences, that the club feels fully repaid for the many hours spent in rehearsal.
The uniform of the club was, as duiing the preceding year, white skirts and mid-
dies and black ties.
THE SECOND GIRLS' GLEE CLUB
The Second Girls' Glee Club of 1921 has completed a successful year. Much time

under the able supervision of Miss Mary Illeliay. Paul ,leanmaire was elected presi-

The Club made their first appearance before the High School, entertaining the
students for the morning program. Thereafter they came several times into the
public eye: in the annual Christmas program, in the opera, 'lThe Fire Prince," and at
other times. Many good singers leave this year, but considering the material in the
Second Boys' Glee Club, the Senior organization next year xvill be able to meet the
high standard set by the major Glee Club of 1921.

OMMENCEMENT week was one of the busy but merry times for the
Senior Class of 1920. The weatherman winked an agreeable eye, so
the graduates took advantage of the favorable weather and enjoyed
On Friday evening, May the twenty-first, the Juniors royally played
hosts to the Seniors and also to the " E " men, by giving them a dancing party
held in the gymnasium. Beljean's jazz orchestra furnished delightful music
for the dancing. The " Senior Moonlight," a special dance, was the main
feature of the evening. During this dance the gym was lighted only by a
large electric K' E " shining forth from a sunburst arrangement of maroon and
cream streamers. Both Seniors and 'ZEN men declared the Class of '21
mighty Hne entertainers, as the party proved to be one of the most successful
ever given in Elgin High.
The next event on the program for the week was the concert " Poca-
hontas." which was given by the Boys' and Girls' Glee Clubs. Much credit is
due to those who took part in the opera and to Miss McKay, whose untiring
efforts made possible the success of the concert.
Sunday evening, May thirtieth, an interesting Baccalaureate sermon was
delivered, in the High School Auditorium, by the Rev. Carroll J. Rockey, of
the English Lutheran Church. The splendid sermon which Rev. Rockey gave
should prove very helpful and valuable to the graduates.
The Senior party took place on June second, in the High School gym.
Cvames and dancing provided entertainment throughout the evening. This
last get-to-gether of the class will long be remembered by all those who at-
tended the delightful party.
Oak Ridge was the place chosen for the class picnic, which was given the
day before graduation. The afternoon was spent in canoeing on the river
fa few managed accidentally to get in the riverj, while others stuck to land
and played games or danced. All those who attended had a very good time.
After four short years of toil and labor, but mingled with a great deal
more pleasure, that long-waited-for, eventful night of graduation arrived.
The graduation exercises took place June fourth, in the High School Audi-
torium. The Rev. John Timothy Stone, D. D., the speaker of the evening.
was introduced by Dr. Abbott, president of the Board of Education. Dr.
Stone delivered an iniiuential address on " The Opportunity of Today." The
Girls' Glee Club furnished several musical selections for the occasion, and
Ora Ballinger played a violin solo. Johann Qualen, president of the Class of
1920, presented the school with their class memorial. Mr. XVhite then spoke
a few words, after which he presented the graduates with their hard-earned
Saturday evening the Alumni reception, which was the final event of the
week, was held in the gym. This proved to be a fitting climax for the gradu-
ates of the Class of 1920.
XYe, the Class of 1921. are now looking forward to our commencement
week. XYe expect a grand and glorious time, as we are going to live up to
our motto, 1' Deeds Determine Destiny," and we are going to show the other
classes what we can do.

N Friday evening, October 29, long before the hour set for the festivi-
ties, over two hundred frisky, frivolous Freshmen gathered in the
High School Auditorium for a rollicking good time.
From the time the program began until it was time to go home there was
not a dull moment. Extraordinarily good talent, for Freshmen to display,
was shown by all who partook in the program.
The various entertainers were most ably introduced by Max Hayne.
There were pianists, soloists, and speakers of renown who appeared before
their fellow classmates. There were also prominent dancers, actors, and
actresses who made their social debut in our big high school circle. By far
not the least of the celebrities were Maxwell XVright, the promoter of Shake-
spearean dramag Sidney Eppenstein, the leader of the Elgin Symphony Or-
chestra, and Kenneth Pfafflin, the stellar football hero of coming years.
XYhen the program had been concluded our dear little " Frosh " scam-
pered to the gym. The gymnasium was resplendent in its Halloween attire
of cornstalks. orange and black streamers, and pumpkins. Dancing was then
enjoyed by the underclassmen.
After the grand march, and during several favor dances, caps and whistles
were distributed. An overabundance of noise and hilarity then followed, but
that was naturally expected, as everyone knows that small children always
delight in a racket.
The final event of the evening's entertainment caused the greatest ex-
citement for the infants, and that was the serving of refreshments. The
" eats " consisted of ice cream and cookies. In the middle of the ice cream
was perched the form of a skeleton, and it almost scared the Freshies to death.
Finally, after all the " goodies 'T had been disposed of, the faculty noticed
that their little darlings were getting sleepy, as they were not used to such
late hours, so the party broke up at the scandalous hour of ten-thirty.
The Freshmen are to be congratulated upon swinging such a delightful

HE football " E" 111611 and members of the Board of Education were
honored at a banquet given by the Athletic Board. The banquet was
served on Monday evening, January the tenth in Room 309.
Mr. S. C. Miller, secretary of the Athletic Board, was toastmaster. His
many clever and witty toasts were enjoyed by all the boys.
A review of the football games of the season was given and they were
considered very successful from all points of view.
Girls of the domestic science department served the following delicious
Baked Ham Creamed Potatoes
Olives and Pickles Perfection Salad
Rolls and Coffee
Apple Pie a la Mode
No doubt this K' feed " must have been a decided change to the football
men after keeping up to their strenuous training rules, but they all survived
and enjoyed the banquet very much.
Among those who gave talks were Coaches Church and Haligas, Captain
Barnes, Captain-elect Earl Britton of the heavyweight squad and Captain
Howard of the lightweight outfit. Other members of the team and Board of
Education gave short talks. Following them Manager VVaggoner, VVesley
Farmiloe, Principal Goble and Tom Jones, the guest of honor, and Lawrence
McNerney gave some very interesting speeches.
Preceding the banquet Earl " Tanner " Britton was elected captain of
next yearls football team. The students of Elgin High hope that Captain
Britton may have the pleasure and honor of leading his team to as great a suc-
cess as Captain Barnes has done.
The 1921 football men certainly deserved this banquet in consideration
of the efforts they have put forth to bring the bacon home for old E. H. S.
May the team of 1922 be as successful as the team of 1921.

HE " Sophs " were much in evidence in the auditorium on Friday, Janu-
ary the fourteenth, as they were holding their annual class party. It
proved to be one of the most successful of high school affairs. There
was plenty of entertainment for every one, including a program, dancing,
games and stunts under the able direction of Miss Edna Geister.
About one hundred and seventy-five guests gathered in the auditorium
to hear the program. The program had been planned by Helen Newman,
Carol King, Ruth Pruden, Stuart Gilles, Adolph Miller and Marvin Atfeld,
with Miss Purkiss and Miss Newman as chairmen. Carol King announced
the following program numbers:
Vocal Solo, ........ .... ....................,.........,....... D o rothy Colie

Popular Music, Leonard Seidenglang, Helen Rovelstad and Leonard Brown
Reading, ..................................................... Dorothy Fish
VVC Six, .... Milton Chaddock, Stuart Gilles, Stewart Hess, Marvin Affeld,
Frederick Langhorst and Clifford Tracy
On reaching the gym, which had been effectively decorated in the Sopho-
more class colors of blue and gold, the young people were introduced to Miss
Geister. She started the ball rolling by asking the best looking boy to come
down onto the floor. Naturally, so many responded that it was feared that a
riot would follow the rush.
Mr. Goble, Miss Pratt and Miss Newman provided much amusement by
their seeming intelligence in the art of hypnotism and mind reading. " Ding
Dong " Meredith climaxed this part of the evening's entertainment by ma-
neuvering glasses of water off his hands.
Social dancing then followed. The orchestra, composed of Dorothy
Baird, Helen Rovelstad, Reno Davis and Leonard Brown, was very much
A committee in charge of Mrs. Drysdale served ice cream and wafers.
A feature of the refreshments was the napkin tied around the spoon with
dainty ribbons in the class colors.

HF members of the Girls' Athletic Club have been having some very
enjoyable parties this year. The membership of the club is very large,
and when the girls get together they surely have a grand and glorious
One of the first attempts at a party was a truck ride to Pottawatomie
Park on Friday, October the Hfteenth. Two truck loads made up the party.
And then it rained, but the girls fooled the weatherman and enjoyed them-
selves regardless of the damp weather. Entertainment was afforded by the
girls in one truck acting out clever stunts for the amusement of the girls in
the other truck. The rain ceased long enough for them to eat their lunches,
and then they came home, happy and contented.
The next event was a party held Thursday evening, january twentieth.
in the gymnasium. The championship teams of the basketball tourney were
the honored guests. A special program was arranged for the evening, with
dancing as the main feature. A most delicious luncheon was served, consist-
ing of chicken patties, sandwiches and pickles, and a second course of ice
cream and cake. The girls said the " eats " sure hit the spot, and they went
home declaring the party most successful.
The Halloween masquerade was the most enjoyed party given by the
club. About one hundred and eighty girls, garbed in all sorts of costumes,
attended the party. A wild ghost walk was the feature of the evening. The
crowd started from the gym and were led through dark corridors and halls,
where ghostlike figures and weird sounds frightened the girls at every step.
Finally the treacherous walk ended in the auditorium, where the girls were
entertained by a short program. Dorothy Fish gave several ghost stories,
after which a mock wedding was staged. The bridal party was composed of
Lucille Landgraf, brideg Lucille Burns, groomg Helen Newman, ministerg
Lucy Bristol, ring bearer, Helen Leonard, train bearer. Carol King ren-
dered the bridal song, " Oh, Promise Me."
Many queer and attractive costumes were worn. Margaret Lundgren
captured the prize for the prettiest costume, while Lorena Meier got the
prize for the funniest costume. Beatrice Bordwell and Reno Davis furnished
music for dancing. The crowd were then served doughnuts and cider, after
which the party dispersed.

bers of the club for their friends.
The High School gymnasium was elaborately decorated for the oc-
casion with autumn branches, cornstalks and the French Club colors.
The dance was preceded by a short program which consisted of piano
solos by Florence Meierhoff, vocal solos by Elizabeth Hayes and a group of
readings by Madeline Hazelhurst.
Novelty dances were the features of the evening. During these dances
confetti and serpentine crepe and autumn leaves were showered down upon
the dancers from the running track.
The music was furnished by Irma Hemming at the piano, andfClayton
Stowell at the drums.
The delightful party was chaperoned by Miss Kroger, Miss Linkiield,
Miss Davis and Mrs. Drysdale.

OYEMBER thirteenth, 1920, witnessed a very unique scene in the
High School gym, as the students of the Spanish classes entertained
their friends at an informal dancing party. About thirty-live couples
attended and members of the faculty chaperoned. An interesting program of
Spanish numbers preceded the dancing.
The gym was made very attractive in its color scheme of red and yellow,
the Spanish colors. The dance programs were very " nifty," being made of
yellow with a small red H E " on them and tied with red and yellow strings.
The two feature dances " Spanish Special T' and " Luna Luz " were attractive
numbers at which time bags of confetti were given to each guest. Frappe
was served throughout the evening.

S a means for modifying the so-called school 'I grind " no better sport
could be adopted than that of tripping the light fantastic. This was
proven by the large number of students who turned out to the Friday
afternoon dancing parties.
This year the hour for social dancing was held first, after which Miss
Yingst gave an hour of instruction. This system was liked much better by
those who knew how to dance, as they were not compelled to wait in the halls
until the hour of instruction had been given.
Good music and proper instruction under Miss Yingst's able supervision
made the dances very enjoyable to all those who attended.
Many of the students have complained that the dancing parties were not
given often enough, as one is held every four weeks, but there are obstacles
preventing us from holding them more often. It costs quite a good deal of
money to have the lessons and besides that the Board of Education would
have to ratify any plan concerning the dances, so we will have to remain
satisfied with the dances as they are.
The students of the school and even the faculty turned out enthusiastical-
ly in great numbers to these parties and we hope that they may continue to
be as successful and enjoyable next year.

HE Elgin Chapter of the Hi-Y Club was organized in 1920 for the pur-
pose of " Creating, maintaining and extending high standards of Chris-
tian character throughout the High School and community." Its motto
is " Clean Speech, Clean Sports, Clean Habits and Clean Scholarshipf, The
membership is open to any young man student of the three upper classes in
the High School, who subscribes to the stated purpose of this organization
and honestly carries out its declaration of purpose. The only privilege they
enjoy is that of unselfish service to the boys of the community.
Meetings are held every Monday night during the school year in the
Boys' Division of the Young Men's Christian Association. Mr. Chas. D.
Thompson is Secretary of this Division, and the founder and adviser of the
Elgin Club. There is also an Advisory Committee consisting of the following
men: Sam T. Peterson, chairman, T. A. Larson and Richard Pearsall. The
ofhcers for the year 1921 are Gordon Abbott, President, Ralph Vtfrigley, Vice-
Presidentg Harold Newman, Secretary, and XValter Knecht, Treasurer. The
election of officers for the school year 1921-1922 was held March 21, 1921, and
we hope that this new group will give their best for the further success of
the club. The new officers are George Brandenburg, President, Earl Gromer,
Yice-President, Richard Lea, Treasurer, Carl 1Vagner, Secretary.
The program usually consists of a short business session, always followed
by an interesting heart-to-heart talk by some prominent person of the city.
Among the speakers whose talks will always be remembered by the members
are Attorney Frank Shepherd, Dr. F. C. Schurmeier, Dr. T. Ladd, Mrs.
Beatrice XY. Cowlin, Mr. H. A. Strohm, Mr. XYalter Rippberger, Mr. Henry
Rice and Mr. Sam T. Peterson. Discussion groups then meet to solve life
problems and discuss practically applied Bible study. Once a month social
parties are held. The most successful ones were the Halloween Frolic and
a Father and Son Get-together Party.
Three delegates were sent to the Seventh Annual Older Boys' Conference
at Springfield during the Thanksgiving Recess in 1920. They were Evert
Moody, XYilliam Mischke and Gordon Abbott.

L ESTAMIDO CLUB was formed by the members of the advanced Span-
ish class in September, 1920, under the direction of Miss Etta Geraldine
Meetings were held semi-monthly in the regular class period when papers
on the life and customs of the Spanish people and the value of Spanish to the
average person were read by the members of the class. Spanish was spoken
as much as possible during these meetings.
Much pleasure was afforded the members by an informal talk, given by
Richard Pearsall on his experiences in Cuba.
One of the most successful dances of the school year, given by school
organizations, was sponsored by El Estamido, assisted by the members of the
beginning Spanish class. The gym was beautifully decorated with red and
yellow, the national colors of Spain. A short program was given before the
An initiation meeting was held at the home of Miss Margaret Fairchild,
at which the Spanish II class was admitted.
The purpose of the club is to promote interest in the Spanish people,
their customs, traditions and ways of living.
Credit is due to Miss Clark for the success of the club as well as the
members.. She is well versed in all things pertaining to Spanish people and
is an active member of the club.
In the Komedy Koncert El Estamido Club gave " In the Sierra Morena," a
little play which showed the Spanish customs. Spanish songs were sung and
Spanish dances were given.
It is hoped that people coming to High School will take up the study of
Spanish, for it is very valuable as well as a most interesting study.
The following people are the present officers of the club:
President, ............................................... Marian Hayes
Vice-President, ....... .. ...................... Carlyn Botsford

:::::oo::: :::::::o::::::::::::::::: :o:::::o::ooo::oo:::
Ihr Ol. E. 3 In
One sunny day of last November,
If you were a Freshie you'll surely remember,
There came to Miss Ellis a bright inspiration,
And she said, H See those Freshies, they're the best in the nation.
I see in this roomful of girls and boys,
In spite of their nonsense, laughter and noise
The coming defenders of the Red, NVhite and Blue,
Our future citizens so loyal and true."
So she started a club called the " C. D. E.'s,"
A club both for business and fun, if you please!
This name was taken, if you'd like to know,
From the session room seats, each letter a row.
just three rows of Freshies as fresh as could be,
XVho gave a real meaning to that C. D. and E.
First to get started in a business-like way,
They elected officers without further delayg
And here is the list if their names you would learn,
Read on to the end of this page ere you turn.
Eloise Ellis was the president grim,
XYho said, " Come to order! " with a good deal of vim!
Leonard Engdahl who is always so nice,
To help keep good order was elected vice,
Virginia Hawkins so merry and bright,
XVas made secretary, the letters to write,
And records and journals and minutes to keep,
She wrote and she wrote till she scarcely could sleep,
In seeking an expert to manage the finance,
They voted unanimously for Dorothy Gantz!
This C. D. E. Club soon got too big for three rows,
You know any club that's alive always grows.
They united more Ereshies who joined them with thanks,
Till all the best Ereshies soon filled up the ranks.
For good work and spirit and wisdom and fun,
Look at Miss Ellis's Ereshies in room one-one-one,
The C. D. E. Freshies may they prosper and grow,
Till the fame of its members all Elgin may know.
May the youth of the future be thrilled with the story
Of what these C. D. E.'s have done for Old Glory-
And history's pages as full as can be,
Of the deeds of many a brave C. D. E.!

HE Girls' Athletic Club was organized three years ago to stimulate and
further athletics among the girls. The membership has increased and
this year the club has over two hundred members.

its purpose. The girls are awarded State emblems and State rings after a
certain number of points have been acquired.
Meetings have been held monthly and each meeting has been well at-
The lirst movie of the season was sponsored by the club and had the larg-

HE Booster Club is composed of the members of the Senior Class. It
was organized for the purpose of promoting and supporting all school
activities, athletic or otherwise. The Seniors saw, at the beginning of
the school year, that such a club would be a great help to the manager of the
athletic teams in promoting games, so they organized, elected officers and
entered with zest into the movement. A fund was created, with which sub-
stantial aid was given. The ofhcers worked hard during the football season.
They secured good cheer-leaders, organized big parades and rallies before
and after games, and thus advertised the games well. Considering all it is
the general opinion that the Booster Club was a great success and it is hoped
that their work will be carried on by the following class.

HE " Mirror," which is truly the reflector of all the activities and func-
tions carried on within the High School, is under the management ofthe
Mirror Board. Finances, the appointment of the Mirror staff for the
coming year, and all business connected in any way with the Mirror are
handled by the Mirror Board.
This Board, which consists of the president, two vice-presidents, a sec-
retary and treasurer, is appointed by the Mirror Association, which is made
up of the Senior Class and the faculty. The vice-presidents are appointed
from the Senior Class, the secretary and treasurer from the faculty, and Mr.
Goble is the president ex-officio.
The Comedy Concert, which is always a great success, is given under
the management ofthe Mirror Board, to help pay the expenses of the Mirror,
and whatever is not needed by the Mirror is placed in a scholarship fund for
the benefit of graduates who desire to attend college but are unable to do so
without financial aid.
This fund has been a source of help to many who would have been un-
able, without this aid, to complete an education.

A yacht was skimming o'er the sea,
A pretty little boatg
The sky was bright, the day was fair,
And swiftly did she float.
VVhen suddenly in the golden west
A dark, black cloud was seeng
The sea began to surge and toss-
Dashed up a misty sheen.
The wind arose with gusts and blasts,
And rolled waves on the shoreg
The sky grew dark, until at length
It could be seen no more.
And now there came a mighty wave,
With foam and angry frown,
The billow overwhelmed the sails-
The boat must needs go down.
just so, on life's tempestuous sea,
When you are blithe and gay,
VVatchl lest the angry breaker rise
And sweep your joy away.
My window faces eastward
And looks out upon the street,
And from early morn till evening
Passing throngs my vision meet.
Sometimes it is the children,
So happy in their playg
Sometimes the weary traveler,
Who goes by upon his way.
And as I watch them passing
The thought comes to my mind,
How the throngs of men may differ
And the races of mankind.
WINTER IS HERE
The trees are laden with ice and snow,
And the wind does nothing but blow and b
The earth is white and bleak and bare,
And ice and snow are everywhere.
Winter is here! VVinter is here!
The coldest season of all the year.
The leaves that were once so red and gold
Are 'neath the snow, so bright and cold.
And old Jack Frost, as still as a mouse,
Painted all the windows of every house.
Winter is here! Winter is here!
The coldest season of all the year.

When a small boy he'd always say,
That he'd be a lighting man some day-
Because of his hatchet did a cherry tr
But he would never, never tell a lie-
In the Revolution, this side of the sea,
An American general was he-
And because of his great name,
He reached a higher fame-
Was never afraid of friend or foeg
To war if called he'd always go-
And he was our Hrst President,
Was loved o'er all the continent-
Winter is now departing,
And Spring has taken its place,
With flowers and birds a-dartingg
While never a winter's trace.
Early in the morning,
When everything's astir,
The lark's shrill call from the tree
Clearly can be heard.
And every year at this time
The coming of the Spring
Brings joy and happiness unbound
To every living thing.
I'm just an old, old sofa,
Worn and ragged and grayg
So now, altho I look 'most gone,
I've seen a better day.
The children romp around on me
Throughout the livelong day.
I'm always used for Pirate's ship
Whenever they start to play.
Listen, and I will tell you more
Of my twofold tale of woe,
For Sister Mary uses me
When she's called on by her beau.
Soon they start to bill and coo
And what they do not say!
So now do you begin to see

Why I'm old, and ragged, and gray? V. S. '22.

E. H. S. THE MAROON l92l
illivrfra Ellarulig Ezmkvihall 'ram
HIS season has been a very successful one for the men's faculty basket-
ball team. -
In Larson, left forward, they found a man who shook such wicked
words that he knocked all opponents silly. He was also of great value in
figuring out problems for them, such as, what angle the ball would have to
hit the backboard to go into the basket. Logarithms came in very handy. In
Goble, right forward, they obtained a man of great executive ability. He did
much to promote team work. Mr. Hance, their able center, was a second
Britton. His tall figure could always be seen waiting patiently under the
basket. VVhen the ball was passed to him he would calmly but gently raise it
high in the air and roll it into the basket. Mr. Taylor, running guard, was
Mr. I-Iance's running partner. The ball always went to Mr. Hance from Tay-
loris hands. An injury received by him on the band saw greatly crippled the
team during his absence. Miller, standing guard, was very able in protecting
the wicket. All the history of the game was known to him, and he did much
in assisting the coach.
Honorable mention is given to the two able and speedy water boys-Mr.
Church, who promises good material for next year, and Mr. I-Ialigas, who
should develop into head water boy in another year.
Lastly, but most important, comes the able coach. Good judgment was
shown in selecting Mr. Huber for this position, for he has made several ap-
plications of Physics in basketball which has helped them immensely.
The first step he took was to purchase one pound of iron Filings, twenty
feet of fine insulated wire and a new basketball. The iron filings he placed
between the bladder and the leather covering of the ball. The wire he wound
around the baskets at both ends of the gym and connected them with the city
current from one of the lights by the basket. In this way the iron of the
basket became an electro-magnet. The field of force of this magnet ranged
from five to six feet in diameter. The iron filings inside the ball were always
attracted whenever the ball came within live feet of the basket. To avoid
the same advantage to help the opposing team the current was shut off when
the teams changed baskets. To a person who knew the trick it would look
slightly peculiar to see the ball go about five feet from the basket and take
an acute angle and plump right in, but to one not knowing the trick nothing
unusual would be noticed.
If Mr. Huber accepts the position of coach next year a championship
team is assured.

HE VV'omen's Faculty Basketball Team have done wonders this last
year considering the raw material they had to develop.
Miss Rickert, captain, was the only veteran left from the year be-
fore, and it is much to her credit that she was able to get together such a f1ne
team. Miss Rickert goes beyond the age limit set for faculty basketball be-
fore next season and her absence will certainly be noticed.
In Miss Sadler, Miss Rickert's running partner, we find a forward who
has a wicked eye for the basket. It was rumored that much of her ability
was due to private training she received from " Curly."
Miss Reed held down the pivot position and did some classy floor-work.
She wrote typewritten copies of rules for each individual member, and in this
way helped a great deal.
Miss Abell, left guard, was noted for her artistic and graceful basket
shooting. Her motto was, "If you can't shoot a basket artistically, don't
shoot at all." She was the originator of the interpretive dances given before
each free throw.
Miss Solomon held the back guard position, and it was seldom that an
opponent could get through for an under the basket shot.
lVe are glad to say that Miss Solomon has twenty more years to play
before she is forced out by the age limit. The age limit is forty years. Figure
Miss Logan needs nothing said about her. All of us know what Hne
coaching ability was shown and how it all led to such a fine team.
Miss Davis, Miss Springstun and Miss Boettcher should show up well
next year, and we all hope to have a championship team.

A judge presiding over a court in Vlfashington, D. C., was administering

" Have you ever taken the oath? Do you know how to swear, my boy? "
Whereupon the lad responded: " Yes, sir, I am your caddie at the Chevy
It was during the nerve-racking period of waiting for the signal to attack
that a seasoned old sergeant noticed a young soldier, fresh from home, visibly
affected by the nearness of the coming fight. His face was pale, his teeth
chattering, and his knees tried to touch each other. It was sheer nervousness,
but the sergeant thought it was sheer funk.
U Tompkins," he whispered, " is it trembling you are for your dirty skin.
" No, no, sergeant," said he, making a brave attempt to still his limbs.
" l'm trembling for the Germans, they don't know I'm here."
The employer of a Polish servant maid who had learned to speak English
was telling of her experience with the telephone. After it was explained to
her she was eager to answer every call. One day a ring came and she jumped

" Hello! " answered the girl, flushed with pride at being able to give the

seeing that you were absent the same afternoon. XVonder what he'd say if
he knew the truth? Gee, you know that guy Crane and E. Hayes are together

One of Dizz' selections:
" Mary had a little lamb,
His middle name was Dizzg
And every where that Mary went
Her Dizz was sure to go."
Harold Newman's Locker-Gordon Abbott speaking: " But why can't
we go right ahead with it and take a chance, and then if Mr. Goble says any-
thing, why, we can tell him that it made a success? "
Stew's Locker again: " XVhat time did he go home? I know that when
Duffy and I went past, the little light over the davenport was still burning,
though very dimly. Illl bet he didn't go till after 10 o'clock."
Mr. and Mrs. Auble's Lockers-Mr. Auble speaking: " And you know it
makes me laugh when I think how easily we got away with it. Didn't we
have a swell time on that auto trip? "
Mrs.-" Yes, and think how much more fun that was than going to
school when you have a combination for the afternoon of Physics, Advanced
Algebra and Civics. Besides, I got a blue slip."

LE.T'S BUY A CAR
Stahlfelt bought a motor car
His pride in it was great,
He ran across some broken glass-
Fuller took a friend out for a ride,
They both enjoyed it nneg
Until a cylinder went bust-
Hayward started on a country tour
And had a lot of fun,
Until he ran into a ditch-
Auble took his wife down town to shop
As proud as proud could beg
And then he bumped a trolley pole-
And when they found themselves flat broke,
In tearful rage they cried,

And have just one more ridell'

A colonel wanted a man-servant, so he inserted an advertisement in the
local weekly. One of the applicants who answered was an Irishman.
"lVhat I want," explained the colonel, " is a useful man, one who can
cook, drive a motor, look after a pair of horses, clean boots and windows, feed
poultry, milk the cow, and do a little painting and paper-hangingf,
" Excuse me, sor," said Murphy, " but what kind of soil have ye here? "
" Soil? " snapped the colonel. " XVhat's that got to do with it

Three friends were engaged in a confidential talk while dining together
in a Broadway Cage a few days ago. Their conversation drifted from politics
to the second marrying of a mutual friend, when one of them remarked:
" I'll tell you what. A man that marries the second time doesn't deserve
to have lost his first wife."
