Four years ago, our fathers brought
Unto this school a class,
Conceived to be the greenest one
That ever came to pass.
Their misfit clothes, their plastered hair,
Their awkward, shambling gait,
Their ope11 mouths, and frightened stares
VVere jests insatiate.
They learned their lessons well, tho' yea!
They could not learn enough,
For from the upper-classmen, they
Had even learned to bluff.
VVith years came increased age, of course,
XYith increased age, came thought:
They learned, when brain power ruled in force,
To do the things they ought.
In football, track, and basketball,
They've made their standards high,
Likewise in their dramatics
They've passed all records by.
In general, you who follow
XVill have to step to time,
If you intend to pass this class
XVith records more sublime.
" The man who comes back stronger, when
He seems to get the worst, s
That man will win out in the end,
That man will end up first."
XVith this in mind our Senior Class
Has worked through four long years,
And now upon their high school days,
They look almost with tears.
They'll oft remember and recall
This institution dear,
Amid good times with friends so true
Throughout their great career.
As Seniors, wise and otherwise,
One thing for which they've yearned
Is "Wie Try, XVe Trust, XVe Triumph,"
Their motto which they've learned.
Hooray for nineteen twenty-two!
Hooray for orange and the blue!
Hooray for the under-classmen
XVho to us have been so true.
XYe doff our caps to the teachers,
The faculty of widespread fame,
Three cheers for the class of classes,
Nineteen twenty-two's our name.

TN the year 1918 the Freshman Class that en-
tered the lilgin High School was greater in
I9 ,P .
g number than that of any preceding group of
' fi' grammar school graduates in Elgin.
ff I P
Mg' WWE, Like all other Freshmen we were " green "
and sometimes may have been the laughing
stock ofthe school at least for the first few
weeks. Hut we soon adjusted ourselves to the
new environment, and have proved, during our
four years of high school life, that we are ca-
pable of accomplishing anything we undertake.
Our Freshman year was not very eventful. XVe occupied the accustomed
Freshman seats in the Auditorium, and meekly abided by the rule that, 'I Chil-
dren should be seen and not heard." However, there are a few outstanding
features worthy of mentioning. Wle exemplified the greatest of all virtues-
charity-by adopting a French orphan, and every member responded with his
Probably the most eventful occasion of the year was the conventional Fresh-
man party. Ere the event was reached, it was supposed that all timidity had
worn away, and that each member of the class was thoroughly acquainted with
the others, but to the surprise of the girls, all of the boys and more particularly
those who were athletically inclined were unable to cross the floor of the gym
and ask a girl for a dance without blushing like a pupil when caught by a teacher
in the act of tossing a note across the aisle. The party, however, would have been
regarded as a great success had all of the boys, instead of about twenty-three
per cent, escorted the girls to their homes at its close.
Every class that has ever passed through the High School has probably had
something that it could 'A brag U about, and the class of 322 is no exception, for
it stands out more prominently than any other class in the history of the school
in the matter of athletic ability. Even the girls in the Freshman year won the
Indoor Baseball Championship. Then in our Junior year one of our classmen,
" Pete " Barnes, was chosen to captain the football team, the team which tied
Rockford for the championship. There were other Juniors on the same team,
such as Britton, Butler, Hageman and Ryan, a quintet whose names have become
famous, not only in Illinois High School History, but as far east as Stamford
and Ansonia, Connecticut.
52: W Gtibe Hparnun 52? W
In our Senior year the same stars again 'K made " the football team, and
again one of our classmen, Earl Britton, was chosen as its captain. This team
defeated Rockford and won the conference championship of Northern Illinois.
As captain of the basketball team, another member of the class of '22, " Bud "
Butler, was chosen. .
XVhile the intellectual accomplishments of the class have not to date earned
the plaudits of the people from Illinois to Connecticut, yet there are a few events
that are really worth while recording in history. Those who witnessed the junior
Class play entitled Sherwood, by Alfred Noyes, would not regard this history
complete without mentioning the fact that there was real talent displayed by
those who took part. XYhile in music Miss MacKay has never told us that we
have a young Caruso or Mary Garden in the class, yet the work of Lolita Duering-
er as leading lady in " The Fire Prince " made everyone in the class feel proud
Our Junior Class play was such a marked success that in our Senior year
we 'K put on " four plays in order to demonstrate the superior talent the class of
,ZZ possessed in this line. The Florist Shop, NVurzel Flummery, W'here But in
America, and Esmeralda may in years to come be recalled as the first efforts of
some of our Mary Pickfords and Douglas Fairbankses.
In social affairs the members of the class have always been quite active and
probably have contributed as much as any other class to the much-talked-of
condition in the High School, referred to as 'Z too many a1nusements." But,
nevertheless, with all our relaxing hours we had plenty of time to get our lessons
well, and to cultivate the thrift side of our natures, for considerable money was
raised by this class of '22 by holding food and candy sales, and giving moving
pictures, hereby living up to our class motto, " XVe Try, XN'e Trust, XYe Triumph."
XVe were able to do all these things, and carry out our motto, only with the effi-
cient guidance of our class officers: Alvin Kunke, President, Wvaldemar Rakow,
Vice-President, Florence XYallace, Secretary.
As we stand now on the eve of graduation and look back upon the school
activities in which the members of '22 have excelled, we have reason to believe
that when another history is written, twenty or thirty years hence, fame will
have been brought to old Elgin High by the successful careers of many of the
members who, if not possessing extraordinary genius, have developed the talents
that they possess and have thus honored themselves and their school.

H Helen, Iyve just been to see that latest High School release, and itls
wonderful! " exclaimed Marjie, on meeting her friend.
" Oh have you? I've heard lots about it and I'm awfully provoked I canlt
get to see it. Tell me about it while we're walking along-wonyt you? "
4' Of course I will. I suppose you know it's a sort of history of the high school
class of '23. The first picture shown is the mob of bewildered, yet determined,
Freshmen entering the institution of learning and ends as they have hopes of
leaving the school with diplomas."
" Is that what it is? I should think it would be rather dry unless they were
very active," questioned Helen.
" They were active all right! You should have seen them show their first
signs of pep as they brought their money for a French orphan-why it just Hew
in, while other classes had to beg for the last dimes. They had a dandy sleigh-
ride party, and I guess not many will forget how exciting it was when the harness
broke going down the Dundee hill.
S352 551231 Ghz Hgbaruun 35.1 aa
" Then their Freshman party! They danced 'neverything-until nine thirty.
"As Sophomores they were showing pep too, and progressing along in-
tellectual lines. The big party the second year was begun by a program of class
talent, and then everyone laughed with the children in the picture as the principal
and some of the teachers were hypnotized and made to do queer pranks."
6' I guess Illl have to take back what I said! I certainly don't remember a
class doing so much, now go on-what about them as Juniors? "'
" Lots of things happened then! Perhaps the most important was the first
class meeting with the president, Lee Meredith, presiding for the first time in a
very fussed manner, and next the scrap about the colors which was rare! It
got quite thrilling, but finally turned out in favor of royal blue and black. There
were a couple of movies given, but the first was the greater success, and they
made lots of money. The girls were busy adding money to the treasury by sell-
ing candy, and the class was very loyal in donating it. You see they were quite
'A Oh yes, and how about athletics? Did they show any exciting games? "
" Of course! It was the junior boys against the faculty and the Juniors
won! That made them champions and, oh boy, but they were proud. Now, to
continue-the junior party and Junior-Senior dance made up the society and
very gay times were reported. Royal blue and black were found very attrac-
tive for decorating the High School Gym.
N 'XYhen the Clock Strikes Twelve' was the play and it was given very suc-
cessfully. It was a modern comedy and very pleasing to the audience."
" That must have been quite a class. It certainly shows Freshmen have to
be determined, united and peppy to be successful."

O! Hum! As sophisticated sophs, we have dismally failed. NVe are the
deadest class Cnext to the Freshiesb in the school-we'll have to admit it.
In our Freshman year we made a fine record. XYe were right on hand for
the Freshman party, and any contributions that were wanted of us, we gave
generously. Then, the C. D. Efs, a club under the personal direction of Miss
Ellis, helped to promote class spirit and we, of the club, were determined to make
it go through the whole four years with us.
But, where, oh, where, has our little club gone? VVe have showed no
interest in it whatever. As far as contributions go, we have responded finely to
each and every one, but that's merely our duty.
However, there are silver linings to every cloud. In athletics we have done
ourselves credit, and in another season we should have a championship basketball
VVe have had hard luck this year, but next year, watch our smoke!

HE members of the class of 1925 entered the Iilgin High School in january
and September of l92l. This has been, up to date, the largest class that
ever attempted to climb the first steps of the ladder which leads to the pin-
nacle of fame.
The first class meeting was held in November. Among other business, the
class colors, blue and gold, were chosen. During the year we have given seventy-
eight dollars to the Near liast Relief for the Armenians, and have subscribed
liberally to the Jewish Relief fund.
Every member is proud of Herbert Hill, the only Freshman to get a major
" lf." His work in the tournament will long be remembered by his class.
Both boys and girls have done excellent work in Interclass Athletics.
lf we can keep up our numbers and our enthusiasm, we ought to be able
to accomplish much by the time we are juniors and Seniors.

VVHEN we look for some one to give credit to for the success-
ful seasons Elgin has had in both football and basketball, we
have to hand the credit to Coach Church, who put the right
B spirit into the fellows.

suit of old clothes and doing the same things he asked his fel-
lows to do.

Coach Haligas again had good success. The lightweight basketball team
hnished in a tie for second place and, although mostly green material turned out
for places on the football team, a lighting team was placed on the field, which
kept steadily improving as the season went along.
Leon Haligas is doing very good work in the grade schools, where his ability
to develop athletes will help Elgin greatly in the future.
Another person to whom credit is due is Mr. li. C. Xkaggoner, whose cheer-
ful spirit and genial ways helped the fellows immensely. Mr. Xkaggoner also
succeeded in getting the best teams here that he could, and the public always went
away satisfied that they had seen the best that could be gotten.
Zlirum the manager
The season of l92l-22 has not only been a successful season from the stand-
point of victories, but it has been equally successful from a manager's viewpoint.
XYe had, at the beginning of the football season, one hundred boys fully equipped.
During the season we were able to furnish new equipment to the entire heavy-
weight and lightweight teams, something we have never been able to do before.
Never have I worked with a more congenial group of boys and never has
the managing been such a pleasure as it has been this season. May each succeed-
ing team have that spirit of true sportsmanship which has so characterized our
IS. C. XYAGGONER.

VVith only five of the heavyweights back this year it looked as if E. H. S.
would have a hard time repeating the record of last year. NVhen the first call
for football candidates was sent out, about thirty boys reported for the major
team. From these thirty boys a team was picked that had all the requirements
of a good football team, namely speed, weight, experience and fight. VVith this
team and a good line of substitutes we went through the season, up to the last
game, without a defeat, thereby winning the Northern Illinois Conference and
the State Championship. Only one defeat marred their record, and that was
at Ansonia, with the odds against them. Although only ten of the twenty-two
boys that were out all season will be back next year, the prospects are good for
a good team next year.
At the first of the season basketball prospects looked good if a back guard
could be developed. Capt. Butler was given a trial at the position in the first
game and proved that he was the man for the position. Hyde Park, Oak Park
and Rockford were the only teams that could hand Elgin the small end of the
score this year and Hyde Park was played with only four days' practice to get
a team organized. Three teams protested our District Tournament victory, but
as yet nothing has come of it and from all indications nothing will.
The outlook for a winning track team for 1922 is anything but bright.
Very few boys of ability are coming out. If the smaller boys that are out now
will stay out and work, Elgin will have a real team in a few years. Last year
Elgin landed in third place in the Conference meet at Aurora, third in County
meet and third in the triangular meet at Mooseheart. Early in the season they
defeated Rockford in a dual meet. The County meet and the Northern Illinois
Conference track and held meet will be held at Elgin this year, and Rockford
will come to Elgin for a dual meet.

X FUR the first time in the history of the Elgin High School tlie
i' Maroons won a clear claim to the title of this conference.
Last year they were tied with Rockford, but this year there is no
- ', 27 one to dispute their claim, because they beat each conference team
-.X in a decisive manner.
7 i There were other games beside the conference games, how-
ever, and Elgin covered themselves with mud and glory fbecause there was
plenty of mud throughout the seasonj.
Coach Church got a good idea of what his men could do in the first game
with Dundee, when the Maroons trampled Dundee to the tune of 60-0.
Hyde Park were our next opponents, and they had to put up a very hard
light to keep from getting beat. They were lucky to get a 7-7 tie. Q1-lyde Park
won the city championship of Chicago and Cook County for the season of 1921.5
Elgin had a hard time defeating XYest Aurora 10-7. The Britton-to-Butler
pass, that was feared so much by the other conference teams, worked 13 out of
Elgin had been fortunate in having its First three games at home. After the
Aurora game, Elgin's warriors journeyed to Freeport, where they proceeded
to trounce Freeport 33-6.
DeKalb was our next victim. XVe had little trouble in beating them 35-0.
Rockford came. They saw. XVe conquered, 6-0. The game was hard
fought, but Rockford didn't have a chance with Britton's kicks keeping our goal
safe and Meredith and Britton advancing the ball.
Elgin repeated the performance of a year ago, when they staged another
track meet at Joliet, and won 52-0.
Our last conference game was staged at East Aurora, where we triumphed
7-0. E. Aurora was outclassed and didn't threaten our goal once, while their
goal was constantly in danger. This game was featured by an 80-yard run by
Capt. Britton, and by the work of the Elgin line in holding East Aurora so that
they didn't make a single first down.
Elgin won the state prep grid title by defeating Macomb High School 34-7,
on Thanksgiving day, on the local held. Every member of the team starred, but
Capt. Britton and Meredith outshone the other members by their terrific line
plunges, which tore Macon1b's line to pieces.

Elgin went to Freeport and took a 51 to O beating. The lights showed the

An altogether different lightweight team took the iield against DeKalb.

As further proof of their changed spirit, the lights held Rockford to a 13-6
score on the following Saturday. Rockford later won the championship.
Haligas' charges traveled to Joliet and beat them Z1-7.

on the E. Aurora Held, 6-6.
Coach Haligas will have several of the 1921 letter men back and with some
promising subs he should turn out a well balanced team. The best of good
wishes to you, " Curly."

ff? ONE of the most important events of the year for Elgin
2- V High School was the sending of the football team to
Q 47,5 Ansonia, Conn., to play the Ansonia High School team,
' - Q ' - ,g who were Connecticut state champions. The Elgin
l 9 1 f N., , ' . .
I - , r - team had won the lXorthern Illinois Conference cham-
Q it J A pionship, a thing no other Elgin team had ever accom-
l ""'l" - plished. They also defeated Macomb, the Southern Il-
It was decided to send the team east, after the successful season they went
through. The boys deserved the trip, for they had worked hard, spending many
long hours in perfecting the team. Elgin people were surely back of them, for
they quickly raised the money on short notice, and every penny was ready be-
fore the team left Elgin.
The trip covered a great deal of territory this year, and the team was
able to see a number of places of national importance. XYhile at Ansonia, the
day before the game, the boys were taken by auto to see the famous Yale Bowl,
and then to New Haven to view the great buildings of Yale University. Later,
when in XYashington, they were given a fine sight-seeing ride to all of the im-
portant buildings and places of our government. Tom Jones will again have to
be mentioned for the pleasant time he gave the boys while in New York.
As for the game, we were beaten. I do not think the defeat was due to the
superior playing of the Ansonia team, but rather to the different style of play.
The eastern officials seem to allow very rough tactics in playing football, while
on a western field the officiating is very close. This would naturally put our team
at a disadvantage. It was a hard game and Elgin fans can rest assured that the
Elgin team tried its best to win.
Now, down to facts, was the trip a waste of time and money? Some
people might say yes, as the team failed to come home with a victory. XYe all
know that the football game was the direct reason for the trip, but this is the
point: Traveling is an education in itself, and as for the week missed in school,
the team learned much in that week that they could never learn in school. It
was not only a good thing for the boys, but for the whole city. The football
team, taking a trip these last two years, has done more to put Elgin on the map
than anything done in a great while. As for the members of the team, did they
really appreciate what was done for them? VVell, just ask them.

HERE are two forms of interclass tournaments, Track and Basketball. As the
Maroon goes to press before the track season, we will have to be content with
giving a word about the lnterclass Basketball Tournament.
The Juniors won, but only after going through several hard battles. As the
faculty had a team in the field this year, interest was greatly enlivened, The Fresh-
men put out a good team, from which some good basketball players should be de-
veloped in a few years.
The tourney was played on the elimination plan and after a team had lost two
games it was out of the running.

HE Major and Minor League Tournaments were instituted several years ago
in accordance with the policy of A' Athletics for All."
Each year the leagues are the cause of a deep feeling of friendly rivalry,
and some good games are the result. The spirit of rivalry is further livened by a
trophy being offered to the winning team. The Boozefighters, a fast well-balanced
team, won the Major League Tournament. The VVashington Heights won the Minor
League Tournament. Each team was allowed only one "E" man, which evened up
May this form of athletic endeavor continue to be as successful in the future as
it has been in the past.

FOR the last few years the girls have not taken much interest in
baseball. But this year all the girls are anxious to play.
Although baseball is the last of the indoor games to be
played, it is thought about just as much as if it were played in
bg ? the first part of the season.
Nearly all of the girls that have played in the other games
are eligible to play baseball. The Seniors, having won the championship in all
other events of the year, want to complete the season with no defeats by winning
the baseball championship, and so the other teams are practicing very hard to see
if they can not defeat them,
Vtlhen all the games have been played in baseball, the girls will turn their
attention to outdoor hockey, which was started only a few years ago, but no
real games have been played.
The Board of Education owns a hockey held at lling Park, and the girls
are anxious to take advantage of it.
Good luck to hockey, and let's hope it gets to be a big success in girls'

Miss Mary Latimer, was a wonderful success.
" XVhen the Clock Strikes Twelve," by Lindsey Barbee, is a modern three-

at his mother's death that her large inheritance passes to him on the condition of
his engagement by December thirty-first of that year, to Elizabeth Stone, the
daughter of an old friend of his mother. Many complicated mixups result.

TUDENTS of the English Eight class, while studying the drama, decided
to stage the play Esmeralda. The play, presented on the sixth and seventh
of February, under the skillful supervision of Miss Emmie U. Ellis, proved
a wonderful success, both from its financial standpoint and its skillful presenta-
tion. The proceeds were added to the Senior Class fund. It is hoped in the
future that more work of this kind will take place.
The play, written by Frances Hodgson Burnett and NYilliain H. Gillette,
cleverly portrays the lives of a poor North Carolina family to whom fate threw
a fortune, yet as quickly snatched it away.

Mrs. Rogers, who has dominated the Rogers household for twenty years,
suddenly finds herself rich as the result of the discovery of iron ore on their
poor rocky farm in North Carolina. Dave Hardy, a young farmer, neighbor of
the Rogers family and lover of their daughter Esmeralda, through his keen
observations learns the plot of George Drew, the speculator, and Mr. Esta-
brook, a man of leisure, who finds an " atmosphere " about everything, to pur-
chase the " worthless " farm.
Mrs. Rogers takes her daughter away from her lover, and the family moves
to Paris, where Mrs. Rogers tries to marry Esmeralda to a Marquis, who, in
reality, is a fortune hunter. Dave follows the family abroad.
Jack Desmond, an American artist in Paris, and his sisters, discover Dave
and his constant love for Esmeralda, and as Mrs. Rogers is one of their patrons,
they arrange to bring Esmeralda and Dave together again.
Mr. Drew and Mr. Estabrook reveal that the vein of ore was not on the
Rogers farm, but on that of Dave Hardy, thus making him a millionaire and
leaving the Rogerses penniless. A clever love story is also interwoven between
Nora and Mr. Estabrook. Mr. Rogers finally becomes master, after all those
years of submission, and Esmeralda and Dave are happily united.
Especial mention must be made of Warren Kenyon in his splendid inter-
pretation of Mr. Rogers, and Charles Butler, in the difficult role of Dave, also
Hazel Beverly, who took the part of Mrs. Rogers exceptionally well, and Virginia
Stewart, who so ably took the part of Nora.

HE annual Komedy Koncert, presented April sixth and seventh, created a
big hit on both nights. The concert was successful in every way, both
from its financial standpoint and in its artistic presentation. Part of the
proceeds went to the Senior class fund.
" The Goose Girls l' was a clever sketch, which has for its plot a visit to
the land of Mother Goose. i
" The Grasshopper " was a mirth-provoking burlesque on grand opera,
which recounted the adventures of the youthful Vtlillie Grasshopper.
" VVe Vtfill Be Strong ' was an " all-boy " representation of a fraternity foot-
ball team fifty years from now in the Elgin High School. The team was ex-
tremely effeminate, with powder puffs and spit curls.
" Duley and Dixon " was portrayed by Alvin Kunke and Harrison Smith,
who delighted everyone with their clever tricks and jokes pertaining to the
faculty and students.
'I Impersonationsf' a review of what famous actresses should have been, and
the way they should have performed their acts, was especially good.
" Pierrot and Pierrette," two dainty dancers, appeared before the curtain.
" Flo Ziegfeld's Office" was a scene of bits of daring. Sherman Mailler
did a real frisco, and Jeanette Taylor and Katherine Sherwood showed great
talent in acrobatic dancing. The music and dancing novelties also were good.
" The Infants' Ballet " dealt with the struggles of a French dancing pro-
fessor and his pupils.
" A Breath of the Orient," in which Emerson Krieger appeared as an oriental
dancer, was a decided hit.
" Sackett and De Sackett " presented a cartooning exhibition of real merit.
They showed remarkable ability in portraying members of the faculty and Elgin
city officials, which was especially enjoyed.
" The Six Syncopators " were a 'fpeppy " group of musicians.
" The Animated Calendar " consisted of twelve misses dressed in seasonable
attire, to represent the months of the year.
" Sompinl Busted " was an incident in a doll shop. It was cleverly arranged
and presented some skillful posing.
The Koncert was concluded each evening by the 'K Plinkety, Plink, Plinks,"
classical and jazzy musicians.
The announcers in the Koncert were represented by three vagabonds, parts
of which were taken by Hazel Beverly, Dorothy Young and Margaret Forsbloom,
who were quite comical and full of jokes.

But Welle to say, and so to meane,
That sweet accorde is seldome seene.
-Sir Thomas Wyatt.
T is the aim of the Public Speaking Department to train the student in the
arts of speech and the vocal interpretation of literature, to stimulate the
imagination and power of creative thinking, to cultivate the habit of self-
confidence and the harmonious training of the mind, voice and body, and to
develop forceful and creative personalities.
The basis of the method of training is the unity of the mind, body and
voice. The work in Public Speaking, as in all other Departments of the school,
is based on thinking. The aim is to teach the student to express, not exhibit.
We must see, feel, think, enjoy, realize, then tell. As we deepen in thought, feel-
ing and realization, words are fewer.
In this work the aim is to bring out the original powers of the student. There
are just as many varieties of expression as there are students to express. The
study is, then, to awaken the student to express himself and not reproduce the
teacherg to brush off the faults but retain his own individual personality. " To
thine own self be true." VVe continually realize that the truly educated person is
he who understands himself, knows humanity and is of service to the world.

HE Third Annual Concert of the musical organizations of the Elgin High
School was given at the auditorium December ll, l92l, in the form of a
vesper service, under the direction of Miss Mary MacKay.
The form of the concert was different from those given in previous years.
The concert opened with a processional and closed with a recessional, both skill-
fully sung by the members of the organization.
The first part of the program, which was given by the Choral Club, was
made up of several sacred numbers, in a few of which obligato solos and duets
were sung by the Misses Lolita Dueringer and Dorothy Colie. Following this,
the Second Girls' Glee Club sang a few selections. A violin obligato was played
by Kenneth Hubbard.
The First Girls' Glee Club sang two beautiful selections, " Deep River,"
and " Hark, Hark My Soulf, With exceptional ability, the First Boys' Glee Club
sang " Send Out Thy Light." The Choral Club followed by singing I' Oh Night
of Holy Memory."
The High School Orchestra, directed by Miss MacKay, rendered several
musical selections which were greatly appreciated by a large audience.
Dr. F. D. Adams ave an im ressive readinff from " The Promise and Ful-
Two beautiful offertory numbers were skillfully rendered by Miss Estelle
Barnes, accomplished pianist.
The benediction was given by Rev. A. D. McGlashan, which concluded the
program, one of the best given in years.

HE Choral Club, which is composed of the First Boys' and First Girls'

being taken in this kind of work. The officers of the Choral Club are: John
Vtleller, president, Lucille Harbaugh, vice-president, Dorothy Colie, secretaryg
Charles Aldrich, treasurer, George Gray, librarian, and Estelle Barnes, ac-
The first activity of the year was given December ll in the form of a Sunday
Vesper Service. A silver collection was taken, the proceeds of which went to buy
new music and instruments for the High School Orchestra.
The annual Choral Club party, given January 27, proved a great success.
Decorations suggesting the Valentine season, a program which included the giv-
ing away of valentines " in the old fashioned way " through a valentine box,
dancing and refreshments featured the evening.
The members of the Choral Club wish to express their deep appreciation to
Miss MacKay for her untiring efforts and interests taken in all their activities,
and the tremendous amount of time and work she has devoted to make this
organization a success.

The K' Music Memory " contest, held at Elgin, April ll, 1922, in which
girls of the glee clubs and students of the elementary schools took part, was a
great success inasmuch as it taught everyone the better music.
The best type of music by well-known composers was studied. The five
pupils receiving the highest number of points were sent to Chicago to enter the
big contest there. Marjorie Mink led with the highest number of points. Doro-
thy Lindgren, Alma Schock, Lamar Spiegler and Betty Newman also made re-
markable grades. Tickets to the Geraldine Farrar concert were awarded to the
above winners. At Chicago, Lamar Spiegler stood highest in her group.
The contest was held under the auspices of the supervisors of music.

HE very first event of commencement was the Junior-Senior party, which
was one of the things remembered by the class of '2l. The gym was
decorated so well with brightly-colored paper and other decorations that it
did not seem possible that it was a gymnasium. The Black Cat orchestra from
St. Charles furnished music, which fairly made your toes tingle, and you may be
assured that it was put to good use. Refreshments of cherry frappe were served
and everyone went home wishing the evening had not been so short.
After the class day program on june 3 came the Senior party, which was also
held in the high school gymnasium. Japanese lanterns swung to and fro and
made a pleasing picture as the girls with their colored dresses came in with
their partners. Beljean's orchestra outdid itself and everyone danced to his
heart's content. After refreshments had been served, everyone went home, carry-
ing fancy hats, shakers and confetti, which was distributed over various parts of
Rev. Martin was chosen to give the Baccalaureate sermon, and he gave a fine
one. He spoke to the class about their future, and brought his points home in a
few well-chosen words. A few selections were also given by the women's choir
of the Methodist church.
It was decided to have the picnic at Oak Ridge, and it certainly was a fine
choice. Games were played, and much fun was had by watching some of the
most dignified Seniors sprawling on the ground, because they did not quite know
how to run a sack race. After canoeing, a big feed and the big dance at night,
they left for home.
At last the great night of graduation had arrived, after waiting for it from
the time when they had been in first grade. The class of '21, for the last time,
marched into the auditorium as students. They were to march out as part of that
large body of people called alumni. The speaker of the evening was Rev. Shail-
ler Matthews, who gave a fine talk. After short talks by Harold Newman, the
class president, and Mr. Goble, the diplomas were presented. Every graduate
took his with a feeling that was partly joyful, because he had won the reward
for his past four years of labor, and partly sorrowful, because he knew that the
good times he had had were ended.
The very last event of graduation was the alumni reception. It was thor-
oughly enjoyed, and the guests made a resolution to give the future graduates as
nice a one.
Now that our commencement is approaching, we are looking forward to it
with great eagerness, knowing that we will enjoy it as well and maybe better than
did the class of 'Zl. VVe hope that the classes following us get as much out of
high school in the way of learning and friendships as we did and that they will
hear more of us after we graduate.

HE banquet which was given to the heavy and lightweight football players
at the close of a successful football season, in the Elk Club rooms, could
not have been better, say those who attended. The guests were seated at
four long tables, and the room was decorated with maroon and cream colors,
and the pennants of the different schools of the conference, which our team had
conquered for the first time in Elgin's football history.
An excellent program was given by members of a Chicago vaudeville com-
pany, which the Elks had secured for the evening's entertainment. A negro
comedian sang, danced and cracked jokes. Two saxophone players and a bari-
tone singer also helped to enliven the evening.
The best part came with the serving of a three-course dinner. First came a
fruit cocktail, then steak, potatoes and peas, and finally ice cream and cake.
The speakers of the evening were introduced by the toastmaster, Mr. Mc-
Nerney, who went east with the players when they went to Stamford last year.
Mr. Goble and Mr. lVhite gave short talks, which consisted mainly of thanking
the Elks Club for its generosity. Coach Paul Church and " Curly " Haligas
gave a review of the season, and the players, Capt. Britton and Capt. Tobin,
also said a few words. At the request of the team, ex-Captain Barnes told how he
had enjoyed playing football and how much it meant to him. Finally Mr. lYag-
goner summed up the speech-making with an account of the financial side of the
season. It must be mentioned that it was at this banquet that Mr. Herbster made
the announcement that we must send our team to Ansonia, and that they would
provide the necessary additional funds which would be needed, for lack of which
it was thought that the team would have to stay home.

Before the Rockford game, a group of merchants raised some money for a
parade before the game. The parade was held, and everyone had a grand and
glorious time. lt was found that there was some money left over, so on the
Monday after the game, the heavyweights were treated to a big feed at the Kelley.
Among the speakers were Captain Britton. Pete Barnes, Church, Haligas, E. C.
VVaggoner and Fred Rogers. The boys say that they would beat Rockford again
for another feed like that.

NE. of the most brilliant and surprising of weddings of the recent months
was that which marked the marriage of two popular Elgin people, Miss
Marguerite Hubbell and Mr. T. Arthur Larsen, both of the Elgin High
School faculty. The wedding took place in Room 309 on the afternoon of
Tuesday, February 10, at four o'clock.
The single ring service was read by the Reverend Mr. Goble. The bridels
only attendant was Miss Gertrude Carr, who served as bridesmaid. The bride
was given away in marriage by the relieved Mr. I-lance."
Now don't get too excitedg it was only a mock wedding in honor of several
high-school teachers, who had lately taken upon themselves the vows of Hymeu.
Mr. and Mrs. Leon Haligas, Mrs. J. F. Tetzner, and Mr. and Mrs. Rose were
the favored guests. All of the usual festivities which accompany a wedding
were enjoyed on this occasion.

would be appreciated more. The music was line, and once we had a full-

HE G. A. C., or in other words, the Girls' Athletic Club, certainly en-
joyed itself this year. Its social season started out with a Halloween
Masquerade party, and after much planning the girls arrived at the
Gym at seven o'clock. Little girls and boys, clowns, fairies, and even Maggie
and Jiggs were there. One Chinaman kept the crowd guessing as to who she was
all evening, but, of course, it was Miss Rickert. A delightful program was given,
consisting of an acrobatic dance by Jeanette Taylor and Katherine Sherwood,
a violin solo by Margaret Forsbloom, a song and recitation by Beulah Fairchild
and Lolita Dueringer and a dance by Audrey Schultz.
A novelty in refreshments was doughnuts, candy and cider. QNot hard lj
The next thing was the banquet after the 'close of the basketball season, in
honor of the winning' team. It certainly was' the best ever. The menu consisted
of tomato bouillon, baked ham, creamed potatoes, peas, hot rolls, peanut brittle,
ice cream and wafers. Virginia Stewart was toast-mistress, and the speakers of
the evening were Mrs. Cowlin and Grace Fern, who told us how the association
had grown and prospered since it was organized.
It was quite a novelty to most of the girls when the roller skating rink over
KCfl3CT,S was hired for a whole afternoon. It was one of the best times of the
year and was 'I more fun than a picnic." Nor was it an uncommon thing to see
someone, who was not as adept as she had been in her kid days, sitting on the
floor with a dazed expression, wondering where she was. All in all, it was a
great party, and if there is a rink in town next year, there will surely be another
party like it.

HE local Hi-Y Club was organized early in 1920 for the purpose of creat-
ing, maintaining, and extending high standards of Christian living through-
out the High School and Community. The membership of the club is
open to the boys of the three upper classes of the High School. The lilgin or-
ganization is affiliated with the Hi-Y Clubs of the United States.
Meetings are held every Monday night at the Y. M. C. A., from 7:30
to 9 o'clock. The evening's program consists of a short business meeting
followed by a talk by some prominent business or professional man of the city,
after which discussion groups are formed to discuss, under the able leadership
of an adult leader, life problems and practical Bible study. Tournaments and
swims are enjoyed after the club meeting.
During the past year the club has successfully staged a Fathers and Sons'
Night, a High School Alumni Reunion, a Mothers' Night, and a Ladies' Night,
besides the regular monthly stag. The 4 C's Campaign for Clean Speech, Clean
Habits, Clean Athletics and Clean Scholarship, conducted by the local organiza-
tion, was a great success. The Campaign worked into the minds of the fellows
and has made a great impression upon them.
Delegates were sent from the club to both the State Older Boys' Conference
at Decatur and the First Annual Ulder Boys, Conference of Kane County, held
The activities and finances of the club are under the supervision of the
Advisory Committee composed of the following: Chairman, Sam T. Peterson.

cause of the great demand for tickets, the play was given two nights. The pro-

A shadow crossed my bedroom door,
It hid an elfm band,
I closed my eyes and with the elves
VVent off to Fairyland.
I thought I went to foreign lands,
And sailed on foreign seas,
I saw the cherry blossoms bloom,
And heathen Japanese.
I trailed a beast in Africa,
I crossed the desert sands,
I visited the ancient tombs
Of long-forgotten lands,
I sailed beneath Venetian moons,
I prayed lneath Turkish domes,
I scaled the walls of old Hongkong,
And peeked in Chinese homes.
And then I went away up north,
To see the Eskimo,
Up to the land of Northern Lights,
Eternal ice, and snow.
I skated I-Iolland's frozen lakes,
I rode the Amazon,
I stood upon an Alpine peak,
And saw the day at dawn.
These voyages were real to me,
But when Apollo beamed,
I woke to find itwas morning
And my travels I had dreamed.

By the shores of Foxie River,
By the shining big creek water,
Stood the seat of education.
Home of Willie Goble's students,
Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors,
All collected there for stndyg
To partake of all the wisdom
That the faculty could offer,
To ambitious. bashful Freshies,
To easy young, stuck-up Sophomores,
To the dreamy listless juniors,
And to the handsome. noble Seniors,
VVho would graduate a good example
Of the power of Willie Goble,
And his faculty terrific.

Here all lived in closest friendship
Clfrse in mind and close in body
All packed into one small Wigwam,
XVaiti:ig for an inspiration,
That would loosen up the pockets
Of the Board of Educationg
And forever stop this dreaming
Of Utopian school house system,
VVhere brand new high schools grown on bushes
And where the teachers work for nothingg
And build a bigger-better wigwam,
VVhich would hold the many students,
And the faculty terrihc
And the big chief, VVillie Goble.
Handsome was he Willie Goble,
Beautiful of form and features
Eyes that melted into kindness
Mouth that showed determination
But also tender in its make up
A graceful nose adorned his Visage
And an awe-inspiring mustash
Upheld that graceful nose superbly,
Handsome was he,-VVillie Goble.

Oh but I forgot to tell you
Of his glasses Optitutah
Of those magic, specticals,
Which he used to great advantage
Educating hopeless students
When his heart would not allow him,
To Hunk them flat, as pancakes flattened
Or he used them on occasions,
When the students, called in session,
In the wigwam's council chamber
Harked to one or two announcements,
Before the program in the morning
Watched illustrous Willie Goble
As he placed these disks of crystal,
On his noble nose majestic,
om off the noted topics,
Then with majestic wave and motion,
Took otf those mystic magic glasses
And breaking forth with words of wisdom
Awed and charmed his spellbound list'ners,
All respected Willie Goble.
Two good friends had Willie Goble,
Singled out from all the others,
Hound to him in closest friendship
Sebastian Miller, story teller,
And the very strong man, Larsen.
Very dear to Willie
Goble, S- 2
VVas Sebastian, story teller, 45' 1.-...
He could talk a God to slumbers, .lj
If Miss Boettcher didn't stop him,
Ring the bell and stop his ravings,
And wake up the sleeping students,
Who had yielded to temptation, X
And slept all thru a class-room lecture. yi
h Rich of stories was Sebastian "
Stories wild of far off Kansas, N, .? DE 5
In the cave-man days of Kansas
VVhen a flood destroyed the city,
And the people lived in cavernsg
Or he could talk of modern subjects
Civics dry, and U. S. History,
Prohibition and the tariff,
The Conference or the League of Nations,
But it made no difference what the subject
He knew it all, and nought could stop him
When he started with his lectures.
Very dear to NVillie Goble-
Was Sebastian, story teller.
A good friend too, was T. A. Larsen,
Professor Thomas Arthur Larsen.
Very strong was Thomas Arthur
Strong of arm and strong of knowledge
and hard geometry
Algebra and trigonometry
And a lot of other knowledge
Which made the students all admire him
For his learning and his wisdom.
He it was who in the morning
Rose up early and to the high school,
VVound his way to reserve the tickets
For the patrons of the students
In their plays and exhibitions.
And the students, watching closely,
As he waited on their wishes,
Marveled at his speedy system.
But 'twas merely good example
Of the methods he employed.
For his motto " Time is money "
Made him super-practical.
He was feared by all the students
For strong he was of arm and purpose,
He did not stop to talk it over
If he found a faulty sinner
But donned his tomahawk and war paint
And threw him out the back-door entrance,
Until the youth, long-faced and humble
Begged his pardon and returning
Showed increasing good behavior,
Very strong was T. A. Larsen.
Goble, Larsen, and Sebastian,
VVorked together on the problems
Of the students and the Wigwam,
Hut there were others-many others ,
Who imparted of their wisdom -
To the pupils of the high school. 1'
There was William Horse-Power Huber i 'l
VVho awed the students with his magic, 7
He the medicine man of Physics
Mystihed and charmed his pupils ff!
Caused their molecules to tingle
And electrified their eyebrows
Turned the sunlight into rainbows.
He it was who threw the pictures,
Magic pictures full of motion,
From his shining cast-iron Wigwam
To the White gigantic dishtowel
Stretched in front of spellbound students. M
He it was who issued lockers
To the people of the Wigwam
That they might not lose their war-gear
XVhen they left it, did not need it.
And when the student locks his locker
Puts the key into his pocket,
He always thinks of Williani Horse-Power
And the magic password-" Physics."

There Was also E. C. Waggoner
VVho was powerful, very powerful
In the science of magicians,
VVhose medicine was strong and mystic,
XVas so strong and was so mystic.
That the students whispered slyly
That if he had the inspiration
He could mix a combination
That would Work some powerful changes,
Could grow a tree on Miller's scalp-lock
Or, if given to Miss Ellis,
Greatest of the critics, Ellis,
It would make her leave off classics,
And appreciate Charlie Chaplin
VVhen he throws his pies of custard
At the Wicked Manito.
Such the magic powers of Ernest.
But he also talked and swcated,
Thought and Worked and labored always
For the teams of football warriors,
Or the graceful basket shooters,
Cr the teams of classy track men,
for any athletic pastime
the students in the Wigwam.
turned contests into money,
Money into players' outfits,
To be used by husky students
Who would don this paint and war-gear,
And go gaily off to battle,
To spread about the shining glory
Of the noble red-brick wigwam.
And the students all admired him
He the medicine man of Chemistry
And the manager of warriors.
Now Willie Goble had two coaches
In this seat of education
Who did naught but coach the war teams, F .f
Of the students in their pastimes. -Lf' 'r gg
They excited admiration, fig: P' 'Af
In the jealous high schools elsewhere, , i'x ,
For their teams were always faster, XV Q 4
And their teams were always better, E3 'ibb 1 if'

Than their rivals in the seven. wwi, Q 'Pr a
Church-the coach from Indianie 1+-f Q. 'TJ
And Haligas, whose curly ringlets
VVere the envy of the women.
When Church and Curly worked together,
Something sure began to happen,
For by their labors they developed,
All-star teams and champion players,
And the students all admired them.
Especially was hard-boiled Curly
Popular with big-eyed Freshmen,
For he it was who was their idol,
He had taught them in their warfare
In the days before their debut,
Into realms of red-brick wigwams.
And when this classy pair of coaches,
Went gaily with their teams to battle,
Willie Goble, he went also,
Speaking wondrous words of wisdom,
Then when the team returns victorious
And stands before the red-brick Wigwam,
H It His good," says Willie Goble,
" lt is good," say Church and Curly.

The teachers of this red-brick wigwam
On the shores of Foxie River,
Are often wont to meet in Pow-wow,
To discuss the situation
And the welfare of the pupils.
Then Willie Goble sends a summons,
And they meet in council chamber
And there they think and ponder deeply.
Now these matters all are secret,
And students do not know the doings,
But we possess some inside knowledge
That will straighten out the tangle.
Willie Goble as the big chief,
Takes his place upon the platform
And calls the meeting into order,
Sings a song and does a war dance
And calls upon our William Horse Power,
He, the medicine man of physics,
He, the man of mystic magic.
Solemnly he rises, chest thrown forward,
Hands uplifted, holding in them,
Glaring forth with strings of Wampum
Thelmagic peace pipe, all its glory.
Then he makes some magic passes,
Holds it forth, once more extended.
" It is good," says William Huber
And hands it on to E. C. Waggoner.
He, the medicine man of Chemistry
And the manager of warriors,
Takes from out his spacious pocket,
A little bag of sweet Bull Durham,
And fills the pipe, while all watch closely,
Strikes a match and lights up briskly
And starts the peace pipe on its journey,
A rather long and puffing journey,
For every person at the pow-wow
Gets a chance to puff and ponder.
And then when all have puffed and pondered,
And Willie Goble holds the peace pipe,
Everyone gives strict attention
As the big chief, Willie Goble,
Thus proceeds to close the pow-wow,
He draws a long deep breath of fragrance
And softly, gently and demurely
Blows a puff in four directions.
And from the pipe the smoke ascending
Curling sweetly like a ribbon,
Floats away, in fragrant doughnuts,
To the North wind, Wabasuso
To the East wind, gentle VVabum
And the South wind, Shauwandosee
And the West wind, Mudjekeewis.
And then the people rise sedately,
With their minds and thoughts uplifted
And go forth, chuck full of wisdom
And a fresh store of ambition,
Which they need in all their labors.
And thus the council is disbanded, 'I THANK YDIJ' ,X
And also thus our song is ended. "X
With this word of consolation .ls .x

The Chiropractic philosophy
maintains that the lJ1'Ell11 is the
power plant of the human body,
which generates all the nerve en-
ergy which is carried to every
organ, tissue and cell in the body
by the nerves. These nerves, as
they leave the cranial cavity, form
an exceptionally delicate structure
which we term the spinal cord.
This cable of nerve libers is en-
cased in the hollow, bony struc-
ture, known as the spinal column.
1 The spine is composed of a number
of segments, or joints, known as
vertebrae, which articulate one with
the other. Between these bony
joints are little holes, or foramina,
through which pairs of nerves are
given oft, these nerves radiating to
A their respective organs or parts of
the body. Now, when one of these bony segments gets out of alignment
by twisting, straining, wrenching, etc., the Chiropractor says it is sublux-
ated. This subluxation tends to decrease the tiny hole through which the
nerve emits, exerting a pressure upon the nerve. This decreases the flow
of nerve energy, or mental impulses, as the How of water through a hose
is decreased when the hose is stepped on. By placing these bones of the
spine in alignment, the Chiropractor allows the transmission of nerve
energy to go on uninterrupted, the part in distress receives its quota of
innervation, and health results.
If you will investigate this new Health Science, the logic of its phi-
losophy is bound to appeal to you. If you are suffering with stomach,
liver, kidney, bladder, intestinal, heart, lung or any kindred trouble come
to this office today and receive a Spinal Analysis.
