igiztnrg nf the Qllaim' nf '23
APPY is the nation which has no history," has often been 'repeated by people
all over the civilized world, and the idea has been applied to smaller groups.
The logic of this lies in the supposition that there is little history unless
there has been warg but this is now proved untrue, for-behold! the peaceful
class of '23, with a magnificent history behind them.
When there first entered into this institution of learning a large group of
freshies, eager for intelligence, they were greeted by the teachers, whose faces were
beaming with a brilliance far beyond the poor little ones' hope of attaining, still
they were not afraid nor green, as most other classes have claimed their members
to be. But this need not be stated, since we have striven, '5-Not only to equal, but
also to excel." - 4
As Freshmen we showed our energy by our party fanimal cookies were
servedj , and our sleighride to Dundee. I might mention here that we were the first
infant class to have one of these. Our loving and generous dispositions were dis-
played by contributions to the Orphan Fund. -,
Then we began to claim our honors, Dorothy Fish winning first place in the
Freshman-Sophomore Declamation contest. The next year Dorothy Storm took
first honors in this contest, showing that our class started .out with ability and
therefore must be successful in the following years.
This second year was quite uneventful, since it is always " quiet just before the
storm." But several things most important did take place at this time. The
Soph party, for instance, where we learned with delight that our noteworthy prin-
cipal, Mr. W. L. Goble, could be hypnotized! We then thought we had learned
something but, alas! the exception, not the rule, could accomplish this feat. How-
ever, for the benefit of the underclassmen, we say, Try and see, for you might
be that exception and your hypnotic powers can be of great assistance to you.
In our third yearwe started off with a Whiz Bang! VVith Leon Meredith,
President, DeLester Sackett, Vice President and Dorothy Fish, Secretary, we ex-
perienced a very successful year. We chose blue and black forxour colors, the
blue for loyalty and the black to keep us calmed down? Severakl of our class
members showed great athletic ability. Lee and Ed. Meredith-deserve mention
for the wonderful work they did on the teams. These fellows did much toward
winning the State's football championship in the year 1921.
We gave movies which, with the assistance of Mr. W. H. P. Huber, proved
a great success. The Junior-Senior dance was made especially enjoyable by the
The honor students are too numerous to be mentioned separately, although
they deserve such mention. Our class is proud of them! The faculty was even
compelled to change the marking system from the letter to the numerical
plan, to accommodate them. '

The last class affair of this year was the class play, " When the Clock
Strikes Twelve," which was another source of wealth to our treasury.
We were most efficiently piloted through our Senior year by the careful and
capable officers, George Brandenburg, President, Lawrence Jensen, Vice President,
and Lucile Burns, Secretary.
I have selected two parts from a student's diary more adequately to describe
the Ansonia game and the Class play with the students' reaction to them.
Nov. ?? " Elgin won the intersectional game today with Ansoniag we there-
fore consider our football season complete. The parade was a "humdinger,"
especially the goat in our float-" We got their goat all right-10-6."
Dec. 23. Oh! hum! but I'm tired. I got so interested in the Senior class
play, " It Pays to Advertise," that I got tired with them. Believe me! There was
some real acting in it.
Student Government was proposed as a Senior class project, and although all
the class members were not in favor of it, the negative vote was not because they
didn't like it, but because they thought we were not quite ready for it. We all
realize what this would mean for the Elgin High School if it could be successfully
carried out, and the class of '23 sincerely hopes that, when the students are
prepared for it, it will be obtained for once and for all time.
Many of our Senior class members portrayed the leading characters in the
Mikado, the opera given by the Choral Club. Their talent in acting as well as in
singing proved a great success.
Our Senior class dance was our last social get-together as members of E. H.
S. Everything was beautiful, leaving a lasting memory of dear old Blue and
Let us hope that all our memories of graduation week will be happy ones,
though at heart we can not help feeling a little sorrowful because we now must
each go our own way alone without the friendly counsel of our faithful teachers
and classmatesg but each time we meet one another fond recollections of our high
school days will bind us close together.
And we leave with thoughts of "cheerful yesterdays and confident to-

On looking back it scarcely seems
That the four short years are by
Since we as lonely Freshmen small
First entered Elgin High.
These four short years together
Have taught us many a thingg
Work we could and work we would-
Success it's sure to bring.
At last we've reached our longed-for goal,
And we're ready to enter the gate
Into the world, to wider fields,
Where we can work and wait.
In football, track, and basketball
We've made our standards high
Likewise in all dramatic work
We've passed all records by.
For we want to be proud of the girls and boys
Who sat in the seats ahead,
When their names are seen in the Hall of Fame
And a wonderful record is read.
To our faithful High School teachers,
Who have helped us on our way,
We share appreciation,
We extend our thanks today.
VVe're ready to start on the rugged road
That life has marked out for us.
W e're ready to climb each mighty hill
With an " I will " and not " I mustf'
And as we start out to conquer,
Each in his separate realm,
We'll follow the gleam with this motto:
" Not to equal, but to excel."

And the things that should be our delightg
All the knowledge we hold
All our dreams to unfold

Dear Old Elgin High School
We've tried to be so loyal,
And bring you all our honors,
Our cares, our joys, our toil,
Our teachers and our classmates
Have proved themselves so true
Through four years we have loved you,
Our hearts are so sad,
Dear Old High School, we're now leaving you.
Let's sing a song of our dear Elgin High
Let's see that her praises never dieg
Make it a song of the school we all love,
Of the classes and gay revelry.
So good-by, dear old school,
When away from your rule
You'll be proud of the class '23,
Dear Old Elgin High School, etc.

HE Twenteafore Family End Third Year With Flying Colors."
This was the headline that greeted Jane as she picked up the news on
a certain June evening in 1923.
" Mother l" she cried running out to the kitchen, " The Twenteafore family
have had quite a successful career according to this. Would you like me to read
it to you ?"
" Indeed yes!" replied her mother, smiling at Jane's enthusiasm as jane
perched herself on the kitchen stool and began:
In September 1920 the Twenteafore family, which Mr. and Mrs. E. H. S.
adopted, entered their new home dressed in green. Although everything was new,
they got along very nicely. In fact so nicely that Mr. and Mrs. E. H. S. decided
that this family was the best behaved family that they had ever adopted.
They were exceedingly lively and before anyone realized it they had, through
the inspiration of their Guardian Angel, Miss Ellis, organized a club under the
name of C. D. E. This organization boosted every enterprise of interest to the
family and proved very helpful.

After they had lived in their new home a short time they decided to give a
party. This they did with the greatest success using their common sense and
having it on a Friday eve so that they could sleep the following morn and make up
for lost time.
This year was exceedingly full and in June they all left their home for a vaca-
tion only to return the following September 1921 with the honorable title of
Sophomore attached to their name. They lived up to this attachment as any
family of its integrity. They carried off honors with the best spirit to all that Mr.
and Mrs. E. H. S. required of them and in June completed their career of that year
leaving their title of Sophomore to the next family, they themselves receiving the
well deserved appellation of juniors.
Having assumed this name, the family, as all progressive familes do, began
to feel independent and looking backward over their spotless record, thought them-
selves capable of managing themselves so they set about to carry out this idea.
The first thing to do was to choose officers. This they did without hesitation
using fine judgment in electing Paul Romeis as President, Freeman Kadow as
Vice President, and Gertrude Carbaugh Secretary. These proved themselves
all that the family would have them be and deserve credit for what they did. At
the same time they selected Maroon and White for the family color and soon the
Juniors all appeared in white sweaters with Maroon numerals.
Being lively and full of pep the Twenteafore family were always ready to do
something and feeling that a few pushers would help, a Boosters' Committee was
selected that helped to boost all enterprises.
One evening a Movie was put on under the auspices of the Twenteafore
family, through a very able committee whose management was so efficient that the
class made over ninety dollars on it and the committee was re-elected to put on
As formerly the Juniors shone in Athletics sending some boys to Ansonia and
having a number of boys receive E's.
Besides the athletic E's there were a good many " Brain Es," for a goodly
number'of the family were on the honor roll.
Two programs were given in the auditorium by the Twenteafore family both
of which were greatly enjoyed.
The Juniors gave a play " Daddy Longlegs " which was given by a very
capable cast under the splendid direction of Miss Helen Welty and was a great
success and credit to the family.
Three of the members were given principal parts in the Mikado and proved
themselves worthy of the family pedigree.
At the end of the year, all left their home with happy faces, hoping that the
following year would be as successful as the first three.

ROM the time we entered High School, the class of twenty-five has shown a
great deal of class spirit and school loyalty. 1
As Freshmen, both the boys and girls have done themselves credit in
athletics as well as other things. The second place in last year's track meet was
won by the class of '25, and the girls won the inter-class baseball tournament.
Now that we are Sophomores we have come a little more into the limelight,
and the Sophomore girls have shown this by winning the Girls' inter-class basket-
ball tournament. The class of '25 also has the distinction of being the first Sopho-
more class to present a class play.
In the Ansonia parade our float, of which we were very proud, won first prize.
Another great honor has been shown this class, for one of our members,
Alvin Hameister, has been elected football captain for 1923.
As we continue to climb the ladder of fame, it is our aim: " Ever da in
every way to become better and better."

Hurrah for the Class of '26l
N September, 1922, two hundred thirty-six " Freshies " entered the
Elgin High School, full of spirit and enthusiasm-and also timidity. We'll
admit that at first we were a bit " green " and had difficulty in finding our class
rooms, locker keys, and lockers, but in the course of a few days our "embarrassing"
In keeping with the custom of Freshman classes, we have not organized and,
as the Freshman class of last year acted concerning a class party, have given up our
one of the four formal parties to the upper classmen.
We have shirked none of our duties concerning the various school enter-
The yell which we chose for our class at the Rockford basketball game sug-
gests the " pep " which we have:
" We have ginger, we have pep,
Can we keep it, yep, yep, yep,
Can you beat it, well just try,
Freshmen ginger, ki, yi, yi."
We have taken an active part in athletics, have given a student program in the
Auditorium, and a number of Freshmen appeared in the Comedy Concert.
We are also proud of the fact that many " Freshies " tried out for the ninth
grade reading contest.
The members of the class of l26 gave evidence of high scholarship in the fact
that a large number of the Freshmen were placed on the honor roll from month
Although we have a very large class, the percentage of pupils who have
bank accounts ranked next to the highest. This was due to the. fact that the
head cashier of our room, Harold Hameister, was willing to, do his utmost in order
to encourage the students to obtain bank accounts and deposit money in the bank
which otherwise might have been spent foolishly.
Our class was very sorry to have Helen Romeis one of our dear members
depart from us. She was loved and held in the highest esteem by everyone.

OACH CHURCH served his third year here as Athletic Director turning
out good teams in all lines of' athletics. In the three short years that he
has served in this capacity he has done much to increase the standing of
Elgin High as to its athletic rating. Never before in the history of the school has
Elgin High had so many championship teams.
Church, no matter what the outlook was or how the townspeople or the papers
looked at the ability of his teams, never became pessimistic but :instilled into his
players that spirit that made them go in and win games that were thought to be

OACH HALIGAS is the man that is in charge of the light weight teams.
He also serves as Director of Athletics in the grade schools. His marked
ability in this capacity accounts for the great number of Freshmen and
Sophomores that are taking such a prominent place in athletics at Elgin High.
His determined fighting spirit is always present in his teams and this makes
possible victories where defeat would have been otherwise.

SUCCESSFUL season does not necessarily mean the winning of every
game. The task which arose of finding men to fill the places of the tive all
conference men lost to us by graduation was no small task. To win games
against veteran teams which several conference schools retained was impossible.
The climax of the season was the putting over of the Ansonia Game on the first
" Home Coming " of Elgin High Alumni.
Our loss by graduation of this year will not be as great as last and we shall
have a more veteran team with which to begin the season.
From a manager's point of view the season has been pleasant, as each indi-
vidual on both teams has been willing and ready to do anything for the betterment
of the athletics.
Our basketball season was indeed as successful a season and not one of the
regulars is lost by graduation. I predict for Captain Semeny a conference cham-
pionship team for 1924.

ROM the standpoint of the number of games won and lost the football season
was a failure. This does not mean that the material was so much below the
average-the harmony at times was not exactly what it should have been.
Because Dundee canceled their game with Elgin at the first of the season Elgin had
to start the season against the strong Hyde Park team. The team made a good
showing against Hyde Park considering the weight and experience of their
In the conference games Elgin was able to make more first downs and more
yards than their opponents in every game except W. Aurora and DeKalb, but
were unable to put the points across. The real team spirit was shown in the An-
sonia QConn.j game when Elgin won 10-6. That game was won by all Elgin-
almost everyone in Elgin taking part to make the intersectional game a success.
VVith a bunch of comparatively small candidates trying for positions on the
team, the squad journeyed to Crystal Lake on Dec. 24 and started the win
column. Out of 23 games played 18 were won and 5 lost. After a narrow escape
in the semi-finals Elgin also won the District tournament at Dundee. The team
was eliminated in the semi-finals at the sectional tournament held at Joliet. All
the first string men will be back next year and Elgin has a good chance of bettering
this year's record.
When the hrst call for track was issued only about 15 signed up and of that
number only one was a letter man from last year. Kenneth Austin was elected
captain of this year's squad, and the squad is working hard every night. Those
reporting are untried, but they have the spirit that will win.
Most of the candidates are underclassmen, which speaks well for Elgin next

LGIN while not a championship team defeated two strong teams this
season. There were nine games in the schedule out of which the Maroons
succeeded in winning only two games and losing the remaining seven. The
record is not as bad as it looks because some of these games were only lost by one
point or so.
Hyde Park opened the season by defeating " Ding " and the boys to the tune
of 27 to 3. Noble made Elgin's lone score by a thirty yard drop kick. Thompson
in this game became known to the Chicago sporting world because of his sensa-
West Aurora split Coach Church's men in their first conference game by the
score of 13 to O. The game was an evenly fought game but the breaks of the game
were against the Maroons. West High won the conference championship.
Freeport had a defeat at the hands of the Churchmen with the score of 6 to O.
A short pass, Weston to Lang, after which Lang ran fifteen yards through a
broken field for Elgin's touchdown and scored Elgin's six points.
DeKalb humiliated a crippled Maroon and Cream team by the score of 29 to
7. This was the first " Barb " victory over Elgin. " Ding " made the touchdown
and kicked the goal for E. H. S.'s only score.
The next game was lost to Rockford 14 to O. In this game it was just a case
of hard luck- of losing the ball when in scoring distance.
In the heart breaking game of the season Church's team was nosed out from
victory by a 7 to 6 score by Joliet. After outplaying the " prison city " team, but
on the small end of the score " Swede " Swanson made a touchdown in the last
four minutes of play. " Ding " missed the goal.
East Aurora took the last conference game from Elgin by the score of 7 to 0.
Injuries, as usual, kept the Maroons from good form.
In the big intersectional game of the season Ansonia, Connecticut, lost to a
fighting Maroon team 10 to 6.
Wheaton, champions of the " Little Seven " Conference, defeated " Ding's "
gang 7 to 0 in the last game of the season on Thanksgiving Day.

N the game of games, when the East met the VV est, Elgin not- only upheld her
honor and prestige by defeating Ansonia, Connecticut, but that of the West
Maroon Field was a scene of 4,000 cheering, happy and excited fans when
" Swede " Swanson taking the ball on an off tackle play plunged through the
lavender line, stumbled, regained his feet and ran fifty yards for Elgin's touch-
down. " Fat " Wittman kicked goal and also made a thirty-five yard drop kick thus
completing Elgin's ten points.
Captain " Art " Stewart of the Easterners made their touchdown. His out-
standing playing along with that of Elardi, Comcowich and Conklin kept the Ma-
roon and Cream fans worried all during the game.
As for our Maroons, Captain " Ding " and all the gang were in heart and soul
to win for old E. H. S.

goat when they took a 20 to 0 licking from our Ma-
Rockford managed to tie the lightweights 7 to 7
in the Rockford-Elgin Classic. The Maroons had it all

all departments of thc game.

OACH Church's Maroons had another successful season in basketball this
year. The team was of aggressiveness and fight that never failed them
whether they were winning or losing. One main factor of the team was
that after the close of the first semester fwhen " Swede " Swanson was declared
uneligible by the nine semester rulingj all the regulars on the team were under-
class men. Only two seniors remained on the team and they were second string
men. This, therefore, insures Elgin High School a winning team next year.
They started out with a bang by upsetting Crystal Lake and St. Charles at the
beginning of the season by large scores.
Their first set-back came with the annual game with the alumni, which they
lost by a very close score 21 to 20. This was a wonderful showing because the
alumni were all college players.
They then beat Oak Park to the tune of 16 to 14. Semeny and Swanson ran
rings around the visitors and won the game for Elgin.
In the first game of the conference play they defeated W. Aurora 35 to 21.
Coach Fletcher's men were no match for Church's fighting Maroons.
Freeport won over the Maroons in their next game 27 to 19 at Freeport.
Captain Lang's team didn't get started until it was too late.
The next night they met and were defeated by Rockford on the Rabs' floor
28 to 18. This was the non-conference game. " Swede " Swanson was declared
uneligible after this game because of the nine semester ruling. -
Harry and the " gang " beat E. Aurora 32 to 16 and followed that by
defeating the stocky Wendell Phillips colored team 23 to 18.
LaGrange and Dundee were victims next by scores of 25 to 11, and 40 to 31
Rockford won the conference game 34 to 28 after being behind all the game
until the last 'three minutes of play.
Joliet and DeKalb were snowed under by 22 to 14 and 47 to 26 respectively.
They then won the Dundee District Tournament and played in' the
semi-finals in the Joliet Sectional Tournament.

S yet the Maroon Track Squad is untried, but there are a few promising
men on the squad. Captain Austin is a fine point getter and men like
Schellenberger, Lehman, Wells, Otts, seem like probable winners.
The squad is made up of mostly under class men and therefore Coach Church
predicts a wonderful team for the 1924 season.
Manager Waggoner has arranged the following schedule for the Maroon and
Cream cinder men.

A mammoth twenty-two-mile relay race is also being planned with the Aurora
schools. If this is done it will mean that there will be forty-four men on each
team and each will run one half mile.
In the interclass meet the squad is divided into four divisions each division
being made up of the men from their respective classes. The following captains
were elected to pilot the different class teams:
Freshmen .... .... M yrton Pritchard
Sophomores .... .... L aVerne Newsome

championship for her team. The first game was played between the Seniors
and the Sophs. At the end of the half the score was 6-O in favor of the
Seniors. They became over-confident and the Sophs caught up and the score at
the final was 6-7 in their favor.
The green team put up a good fight but the game was new to them and they
were beaten by all the others.
Again the Sophs surprised the school by beating the juniors. Hard
work had won them their well-earned first place. Both the Seniors and the
Juniors were now determined to win second place so great interest was shown
in the game. lt was hard-fought but hard luck was again the lot of the Seniors
and they were beaten by the score 4-3.

HE Annual Comedy Concert was presented to a full house on Friday
evening, April sixth, under the auspices of the Mirror Board. It was en
joyed by everyone present and was declared a success financially.
The entertaining quality was exceptionally good considering that most of the
acts were given by underclassmen while in previous years the stunts were com
posed by Juniors and Seniors.
The orchestra deserves great credit for the part it played in saving the day
when the shifting of scenery was slow.

N September, 1922, when school opened again, we had a good number of
veteran warblers to start the year with, and immediately set out to organize.
As soon as the club officers were elected we began our campaign of enlarging
to a bigger and better organization. VVe had little difficulty in getting as many
voices as the club could handle and then began to work.
Our first appearance was with the First Girls' Glee Club before the student
body in a spirited program to boost our football team in its big intersectional game
with Ansonia, Conn. Next we turned our efforts towards putting on the Comic
Opera, Mikado, March 23, 1923. This required a great deal of hard work, but the
boys did it cheerfully and willingly, with a result that the work of the Boys' Glee
Club, in helping make it the success that it was, was indispensable. After the
Mikado our next work was helping in a program for the Y. M. C. A. Then our
last appearance was for the Commencement Exercises. Taking the season as a
whole it is to be considered very successful and the boys are to be congratulated
on their work.
We secured our own original insignia, and these pins will serve as a reminder
of the many good times we had during the year.
Special credit must be given Miss Leigh, who worked unceasingly for our in-
Many of the boys will be back next year, and with these as a nucleus a good
Boys' Glee Club is assured.

HIS year the popularity of the High School Orchestra has been greatly in-
creased. Although there was a change of directors, the enthusiasm of the
orchestra remained. Miss Blanche Leigh, the new director, from the first,
worked exceedingly well with the orchestra and through earnest efforts of both
acquired great success. It may truly be said that it has been the most successful or-
chestra we ever had. They played on several interesting occasions including the
Passion Play Lecture and the Mikado.
From the High School Orchestra is developed the " Royal Serenaders " or-
chestra, a jazz orchestra, that has won renown in Elgin this last year playing for
the Courier Christmas dinner, the Rotary Club Christmas party, G. A. C. parties,
the Commercial Club banquet, and at the Grove Theatre for three days.

RETTILY-GOWNED misses with their perfectly-groomed escorts danced into the
limelight on the stage, with their merry laughter and cheerful songs. They intro-
duced the social whirl of the school life.
Our eyes opened in amazement when we beheld the gym, a mass of pink bows, and
streamers falling from the ceiling. The juniors were giving their annual prom to the
Seniors. The young people danced to the syncopation of Billy Beljean's orchestra. The
special number was a balloon dance. The balloons were tied to the ankles of the young
ladies. The object of the affair was to see who could dance the longest without having
her balloon broken. jannette Taylor, Lucile Landgraf, and Carroll King tied for the
prize. a corsage bouquet.
The scene next shifts to an orange and blue setting. Everything was in a flutter, for
the mighty Seniors were entertaining the Juniors and the faculty. They, too, had a
special number. This time it was to draw the lucky number " l3." Thirteen won, and
the prize was awarded to Carroll King and Waldimar Rakow. Stone's Novelty Boys fur-
nished a delightful program of twelve numbers. The grand march, led by Vice-President
Rakow and his partner, ended the affair. Who knows but that the Seniors went home
with just a sad little ache in their hearts at the thoughts of their high school days being
so nearly over?
The mighty Seniors lost their dignity, and forgot their honors, and pranced off to
Oak Ridge for their class picnic. They played games, ran races, and swam through
all the long day. A picnic supper was held fone Senior forgetting himself and eating
three olives too many, and when he got home-well ? ? ?--J. Everybody did justice to
it. When the sky was darkening and the mist was falling on the grass the Seniors re-
gained their dignity and went home.
The auditorium was in confusiong whispering was heard from one end to another.
All were craning their necks, lookingg then-silence. The Seniors were making their
last appearanceg it was Class Day. Well, they justified all of the excitement they
caused. Everyone laughed heartily at the will and class prophecy, cartooning, etc. Do
you remember the cartoon of Miss Rickert and T. A. Larsen? If you don't, just ask
Rev. Green was chosen to give the Baccalaureate sermon. He delivered a mighty
fine address, and gave the Seniors many helpful hints to carry with them through life.
Rev. Green brought honors upon himelf and the school that selected him to speak.
Finally the night of all nights came. Graduation is a time to which every student
looks forward from the time he enters the first grade until he walks across the auditor-
ium platform for the last time. The Honorable Dr. L. G. Rettger was the speaker of the
evening. He delivered a fine, impressive speech which was followed by a short history
of the class, given by Alvin Kunke. A solo was given by Loleta Dueringer. Principal
Goble, in the absence of Professor White, named the honor students and presented the
diplomas. The Senior class stood for the last time as a student body of the Elgin High
School and sang their class song. As the music floated away the Seniors marched out,
and they were alumni.
The last event of the commencement was the Alumni reception. The music was pro-
vided by Walter Stone and Novelty Boys. It was a lovely party, and an appropriate
ending to the many good times given to and by the Seniors.
The class of 1923 are looking eagerly forward to their graduation. However, it is
not without a feeling of pain for having to leave their Alma Mater.

Many lovely parties were given, the first one a Hallowe'en Masquerade.
The guests were arrayed in beautiful, horrible, and funny frocks. Miss Clarice Watson
was awarded the first prize for the prettiest costume, Madeline Sower for the most
original and Eleanor Cloudman for wearing the most comical attire. The girls enjoyed a
very interesting program, arranged by Miss Laura Danford. Of course the best part
came about eight-thirty. Everybody marched, with a look of expectancy on her face, into
311, where doughnuts and cider were served.
The G. A. C. gave a party in honor of their mothers. This was held in November.
It was the first party of its kind, and it certainly was appreciated. Mrs. Cowlin gave a
splendid talk to both mothers and daughters. There were many more numbers that were
appreciated. Everyone was all worn out after the exciting basketball game. Ione
Kern's team clashed with Muriel King's. The score was one sided C11-25, but not the
playing. The High School Jazz Orchestra played for the dancing, and gave some special
numbers. After the dancing everyone Went down to 211 and was served hot chocolate
and sandwiches. My, how proud the mothers were of their pretty little daughters!
Around Christmas time the girls decided to go back to their childhood days. They
wanted to taste the joys of youth once more, and forget the sting of age. What should
they do? Why, of course, have a " Kid Party." This was given December 11 in the
gym. As the girls entered, three little bitsy Seniors fLucile Burns, Dot Fish, and Carroll
Kingl ushered them to their seats. The little Seniors were dressed in white, trimmed in
green, and sucked green all-day suckers all of the time. A fine program was arranged by
Lucile Burns. Virginia Stewart, the president of the club last year, sang a group of
popular songs. A piano solo by Marguerite Vollman, a reading by Elsie Westby, and a
violin solo by Evelyn Oakes, concluded the program. The High School Jazz orchestra
provided music for the dancing. A dainty lunch was served, and everyone went home
content and happy excepting the clean-up committee. '
The last social event staged by the Girls' Athletic Club was a pretty valentine party,
given at the High School Gym, Feb. 14. A special program was arranged, followed by
Valentine Games and social dancing. Katherine Karsten was chairman of the game
committee, and lone Kern of the refreshment committee. '

REAT credit is due the class of 1911 for the successful publication of the
Hrst " Maroon." Although the annual has greatly changecf' since then, still
it was through their efforts that this publication has come to mean what it
does to the school.
The purpose of the Maroon is to keep us interested in Elgin High and its
activities, after we have passed from its halls for the last time, and to recall
pleasant memories of bygone days.
No great changes have been made in this year's book, but we have added some
new features. This year the annual has been arranged in the form of a play. The
cast is composed of the faculty and classes which make it possible for us to publish
this book. Under the play come the activities which make our years in Elgin
High, interesting and pleasant.
It has been impossible for us to put out a Maroon that will satisfy everyone,
but we hope that we have been able to give you an annual that will come up to the
standards and expectations of the school.

Upon the mountain which I climbed,
An ancient temple stood,
There countless souls for ages prayed
As only Chinese could.
The walls with silken curtains hung,
The priests were sandal shod,
Sweet incense burned in silver pots,
Before a silent god.
I turned and softly clambered down
The natural mountain stairs,
I heard the rustle of the wind,
And murmuring of prayers.
The Chinese god was ugly, still,
It was to them divine,
And in that heathen holiness,
I knelt and prayed to mine.

DISTINCTIVE honor has been accorded to Wilfred Gronberg, a high
school student, son of Clarence Gronberg, a member of the faculty, whose
paper on, " A Few of Roosevelt's Qualities," was personally selected by Mrs.
Edith Roosevelt as the best composition sent to her out of a group of nine.
The papers, taking up the various phases of the late President Roosevelt's
life, were sent to his widow at Oyster Bay, by Miss Isabel W. Hardie, English
instructor, and in returning them with her personal choice of the best paper, en-
closed her card with the following notation:
A' It is difficult to make a choice. The essays are all good. I prefer that of
Wilfred Gronberg, because it shows thought and a firm touch and is written in
a good clear style. Many thanks."
A Few of Roosezfelfs Qualities
" Nothing is more noticeable in Theodore Roosevelt than his love for his
children. He treats them on an equality basis. That is he joins in their sports
and acts like one of them, in order to bring them up in the best way. In his letters
to his children Roosevelt brings out these qualities. He started correspondence to
them in their early childhood and kept it up until his death.
" Long before they were able to read or write, he sent them picture letters,
giving his picture in rough sketches to portray to them his thought. When they
grew older he wrote letters containing advice. At the end he would apologize for
preaching. His greatest pleasure was to romp with his children and take them on
hikes. He had a deep and abiding love for his children, family and home. He did
all he could to have a jolly and lovable home.
" All of his letters contain an inexhaustible vein of humor, containing all the
quaint sayings of his smallest boy and the antics of his pets. This kind of letters
tends to keep alive a 'love of home in the' heart of an absent member. In all of his
letters Roosevelt reveals his strong, vigorous, exalted character. Many of his
letters to his children are valuable guides for youth in all ranks of life."

F all the plays ever given in high school this one surely took the silk lined
pancakes. It was marvelous. Every one sat spell bound through the per-
formance. The characters were very carefully chosen, and ably acted, the
participants being among the noble faculty. From the rise of the curtain to its
final drop the whole thing was entrancing.
E. C. Waggoner as the banker certainly showed marvelous strength in leaving
money around. We suggest that he take up the profession, and then we are sure
more women would start saving.
Paul Hance, the burglar, did some fine acting. I suppose he got his practice
from coming in late at night.
Evelyn Boettcher, the secretary, pounded the typewriter on the stage, with the
same zeal as when she is making out Hunk cards to send home to papa.
Mr. Miller ably performed his part as the worthy and noble judge, who
sentenced the hound who stole the maroon. As Shakespeare would say " He seen
his duty and he done it nobly." '
But the climax came when handsome T. A. Larsen bounded on to the stage
as Sherlock Holmes ably assisted by W. H. P. Huber, his friend and colleague
Watson. Words fail me! The acting was fine and every member of the cast
did fine. I thank you.

The heyday of the Sheiks is here,
Yea, it is now at hand,
When they, with verdant hirsute growth,
Frisco madly o'er the land.
With jazzbo ties and Toreador trunks
And silken scarfs around them tied,
And cigarettes smoked through lengthy stems,
They dash across the country-side.
The also sport the darby hat,
, fl' hat cunning felt creation
Which serves to cover up their hair
4 1As, they trip among the nation.
The dancehall is their stamping ground
Here they perform to syncopated blues
And. tread the slippery hard-wood finish
In n classy triplefplated shoes.
And then, of course, there are the Shebas,
In slinker gowns they sail the public streets,
They used to chop them off around the kneeses,
But now you're doing 'good to see their feets.
They carry their utensils 'round in boxes,
Their compact, and their lipstick, and their rouge,
Their interest, from the way they use their mirrors,
Intheir redecorated features must be huge.
They also wear those hairy woolen stockings
In every shade from lightest pink to green,
And opcfords, like Joe's coat, of many colors
Are perceived upon their feet when they are seen.
O yes, they sure are great, these sons and daughters
Who, the immortals, tryftdimitate,
And anyone who says thatitqhey are foolish,
Is crazy, and is a dumbebell and a skate.

" Oh, Adie dear, I have the nicest compliment for you!" exclaims Ray Peterson,
playfully kissing Adie Miller. '
" Oh, honey, please go ahead and tell me," begs Adie re-tying Pete's tie and pulling
his hat over his eyes a little more.
" Well, Weldon Kretschmer thinks you're awfully cute looking."
" Oh, I'm sure he didn't mean it" murmurs Adie modestly. "I just love Weldon my-
self. I think he's darling. He looked so cute in English class this morning."
"I wonder what Leon Meredith is crying about?" says Swede Swanson, gazing cur-
iously at Ding, who has just joined the throng, drying his eyes on a green crepe-de-
chene handkerchief. Some of the observers occupy themselves with combing back stray
locks of hair, others powdering their noses, but George Brandenburg, Lawrence Jensen
and John Weller fling their arms around the weeping Ding and say, " What's the matter
" Oh, nothing at all," says Ding, sobbing on George's shoulder. " But Mrs.
Drysdale-Mrs. Drysdale-Mrs. Drysdale-" His emotions overcome him and Lawrence

" Dearest, don't cry. What is the matter? Were you caught obtaining aid from
some one else?"
"If that is all, dear, I wouldn't worry so much about it if. I were you. Why, I
didn't get 90 in everything this month, either," says James Dalbey.
A Unwilling to be comforted, Ding mournfully departs and Joe Klien says, " He cer-
tainly didn't deserve more than 70 anyway."
" Well, for my part, I can't understand what his girl sees in him," remarks Marvie
Affeldg and then they all add broad-mindedly: " But he's an awfully sweet boy."
" Don't you like his hair parted on the side?" remarks Bill Shales.
" Oh, no, I like it parted in the middle," remarks Nelson Takahashi.
" Oh, you're all wrong," exclaims Luther Giertz, " he looks darling no matter how he
" Oh! George Gray had the prettiest slippers on today. They're the newest things,

Things that make life miserable for the staff.
" Say, when are the Maroons coming out?".
" Was my class picture good? Which one do you like the best?"
" You ought to put this in the Maroon."
" Is the Maroon going to be as good as last year?"
" Is there very much work in putting out the book?"
"To whom are you going to dedicate it?"

An Irishman named Kennedy has just died at the age of 125 years. It is only fair
to state, however, that he lived in Canada all his life.
If you can't afford to travel, you can get Pullman luxury at home anyway. Just

What is Anatomy?
A little negro girl, down in Florida, in answer to this question, wrote the following:
"Anatomy is a human body. It is divided into three parts, the haid, the cheist, and
the stummick. The haid holds the skull and the brains if they is any, the cheist holds
the liver and the lites, and the stummick holdes the entrails, and the vowels which are a,
e, i, o and sometimes w and y."
How to Live
So live that when you come to die, your death notice will not appear in the news-
paper among the list of town improvements.
" Your honor, I was not intoxicated."
" But this officer says you were trying to climb a lamp post."
"I was, your honor. A couple of cerise crocodiles had been following me around
all day, and I don't mind telling you that they were getting on my nerves."
" Why do you seem so fussed, Jane?" her friend asked.
" Oh, I always feel self-conscious in an evening gown," said Jane.
" Sort of all dressed up and no place to go?"
" No-nothing on for the evening."

Mr. Huber is my teacherg

And answereth: " Failed."
I cannot understand electricity,
Magnets and Batteries haunt me.
I am crushed by air pressure,

A pretty young lady stepped into a music shop in. the city the other day. She
tripped up to the counter where a new clerk was assortmg music, and in her sweetest
voice asked: " Have you ' Kissed Me in the Moonlight?"
The clerk turned, looked and said: " It must have been the man at the other counter,
I've been here only a week."
Our eyes grow dim, our cheeks turn pale,

Dorothy Day is never tardy in Session Room.
Freida Barnwell never looks at boys.
To work or not to work, that is the questiong
Whether to work and win good grades and miss all the fung
Or play the Bluff and drift along thru school.
They both are hard but which is harder I cannot say.

The Scotch of It
In a little town not far from Inverness, Scotland, Young Angus MacTavis worked in
the grocery store of Donald MacFeckle. Angus was completing his evening chores one
evening when his master's voice sounded from the head of the stairway.
"Angus, lad, have ye sanded the sugar?"
" Aye," replied Angus.
" Have ye watered the milk?"
" Vury well, then, Angus-come ye up tu evening p-r-rayers-ers."

Not a horse-car was in sight,
So I stepped into the cigar store
To ask them for a light.

Was a woman old and gray,
Who used to peddle doughnuts
On the road to Mandalay. Q
She said, " Good morning, stranger."
And her eyes were dry with tears.
She stuck her head beneath her feet,
And stood that way for years.
Her children all were orphans-
Except one, a tiny tot
Who had a home across the way,
Above a vacant lot.
As we gazed through the oaken door,
A whale went drifting by-
His six legs hanging in the air,
And I kissed her goodbye.
The quietness of the noise was still
The evening star was dawning
A dead horse galloped up and said,
" We won't get home till morning."
Women and children first, he cried,
As he passed his plate for more
He took his hat off the gate,
And hung it on the floor.
An axe came walking through the air.
The clock struck twenty-sixg
I turned my eye upon the sky,
And saw a flock of bricks.

S ideas become realities, hints and suggestions become an
actual part of the book. The editor and manager pause
amongst the pages of their dummy to think of the events of
the last few months. The " Maroon " has made them busy months
with many new experiences."
Every section of the dummy brings to our minds the many
friends that have helped to make the class of '23's yearbook a treas-
ure for its owners. This page recalls to us one friend, the next page
another, and so it continues from cover to cover. These friends'
work is unpraised-their efforts make only a small fractional im-
pression on the reader.
The Photographer, Mr. W. A. Dueringer, has been of great help
to the staff. He took great care with the pictures and the splendid
results of his labor can be seen. The Lithotype Company has taken
a very personal interest in the " Maroon." Their workmanship is
very gratifying and should add much to the book. No other printing
plant can be found that is so well fitted to print the annual as the
Brethren Publishing House. Their cooperation and suggestions have
been of great value to the editor and business manager.
The staff must be highly commended for their support and will-
ingness to work. Each member has been very particular about the
quality of his or her work.
To Norris Kent, the associate-editor, much credit is due. Left
with the burden of the work on his shoulder by the absence of the
Editor-in-chief, he has done remarkably well in the assembling of
the " Maroon." The faculty advisors have been a source of help and
advice at all times.
The Business Manager's road is not all a path of roses. He puts
in many hours of time with nothing to show for it. It is my hope
that I have been worthy of the trust and honor given me by my
classmates and instructors. I am glad to have been of some service
to my class and to Elgin High.

Science is largely theoretical. It
starts with ignorance as a base and
develops through imagination and
It is of two classes-true and
conjectural. True science is the knowl-
edge of facts, and has for its hand-
maid philosophy, which is the knowl-
edge of principle. With the use of
true science and philosophy man as-
cends to the zenith of his intellectual
ability in his study of questions of life.
Chiropractic is a true science, because it deals with facts. It is a
philosophy, because it reckons with the knowledge of principles. As a
science and a philosophy its value is enhanced by the common-sense basis
of its ground-work as theories of life study. It reasons matters out from
the common-sense basis and reaches its conclusion of fact to establish its
science and philosophy in truth, which is uniform and indivisible, and this
truth it proves by the fruit it bears.
A science that is so-called and proves few or none of its premises with
facts that will hold the favor of those to whom it appeals as a true science,
naturally will meet with and feel the effect of much skepticism.
There are some who doubt Chiropractic, but those who make use of
it know its verity and have as the basis of their faith the fact of its efficacy
as a health agent.
Try Chiropractic for your HEALTH needs.

The Last Day of School?
Education is like store-keeping.
Conducting a store is like going to school.
School days do not end when you are presented with a di-
ploma. Your practical training is really only beginning.
Among our employees, those who are always eager to im-
prove their knowledge, who welcome rather than dislike sug-
gestions and criticisms, are the most valuable. They are still
" going to school " every day.
Only as ouremployees attain greater efficiency, can our
store service be improved. Only as each of us gains in knowl-
edge and experience day by day, can our measure of service
f be broadened.

What is Your Destination?
Happiness may survive povertyg but it does not thrive upon it. Gambling is a diversion:
speculation an artg investing' a science. In this age of reckless spending, to live happily
upon one's means is a real measure of a man. Work a little harder, plan a little halder and
save a. little harder-is not that the whole secret of success? There is no easy road to financial
independence. But there is a road which any man may travel if he but will to do so.
Although planning for the age of sixty makes one shudder at twenty-five, the prospect
of being dependent upon others at age sixty is certainly far more fearful. If a man, no matter
what his joh, can spend a little less than he earns, there are ways of building that little
into a competence-and a competence is wealth.
The first man who shelled an car of corn, dug his trench for the seed, watched over the
spot until the first sprouts appeared, watered and weeded carefully each day and then reaped
his harvest. was an investor. The seeds were his investment, the crop that resulted, multiply-
ing his original planting many hundreds of times, was his incomeg that portion of his crop
which he replanted was the wealth that he reinvested.
A pest on the doubters and the sycophants and the would-be cynics! There are fewer
poor people and more rich people in this country today than there were ever before, ignoring
war-times when everyone thought he was rich. You, no matter who you are, can be among
the rich ones-if you want to.
Happiness does not come from having all that you want. Happiness consists in having
a little more than you need. A little more income, a little more money in the bank, a little
more room in your home, a little more food and clothing, a little more opportunity for recrea-
tion and relaxation. Scientific and conservative investment is the surest way to produce that
" little more."-From " The Magazine of Wall Street."
