I 9 2 3 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 balloon dance. 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. ' 27 1 9 2 3 CE-il?-QE GD-5-IK-HD-HD-119 1 9' 2 3 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 Black. 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- morrowsf' Eunice Abbott '23. um- Nr" m was rm -s 5-5.152-QXQWLL as ' ' 4- .T L4 X xi ' ziiilmll ill wie.

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."

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. 58 I 9 2 3 QE-ID-QE W-H-IR-ED-HD-iii 1 9 2 3 Jluninr Gllaaz Mintnrg---Qlnntinurh 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 another. 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. ELOISE A. ELLIS '24. 59 1 9 2 3 if-iD-QE QB-5-I3-ED-QD-ITF!

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 Y Y every way to become better and better." MARY MCDONALD '25. 3. .-.. :iz ,-L' Q30 v 1 Br ff K . Y ' f' Q-?'s'5sS,f -s-ftrli.

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" moments decreased. 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- prises. 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 to 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.

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 impossible. s. 94 89 I 9 2 3 QC-lb-QE W-5-I3-ED-HD-.113 1 9 2 3 Glnarh ijenn 711. igaligan 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. Manager E. QI. waggnnrr A Manager VVaggoner served more than in the capacity of manager to the boys. He was the man that they could come to with troubles and always go away re- lieved and with a better spirit. Elgin High has only played the best teams available for Manager Waggoner was not satisfied in bringing teams of low caliber here. He always gave the fans and the teams a fair deal.

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. E. C.

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 opponents. 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. 'l5B5k2thHll 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. dttack 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 year. PAUL B. CHURCH, Coach. 92 f-a.n!lm',.. at... .Q......-..... .441 . .ting inn. L .

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- tional playing. 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.

In the next game, DeKalb acted the part of the goat when they took a 20 to 0 licking from our Ma- roons. Rockford managed to tie the lightweights 7 to 7 in the Rockford-Elgin Classic. The Maroons had it all over the Rabs, even if the score does not show it. Joliet was the next victim, with a l2 to 0 score marked up against her.

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 respectively. 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.

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- terests. Many of the boys will be back next year, and with these as a nucleus a good Boys' Glee Club is assured. 144 I 9 2 3 ill'-lb-QE Q-5-IR-El?-HD-ll?

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.

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 them. 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. 148 g 1 9 2 3 at-ip-QE eg-21-Ia-Q19-QD-:ra 1 9 2 3 Girlz' Alhlrlir Glluh Hurting HIS merry group of actors again appear at social functions of ,the Girls' Athletic Club. 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. ' Elgin lllnllrgr Qlluh Elm The Elgin College Club gave a tea for the Senior girls of Elgin High School at the home of Mrs. Alfred D. Edwards on Highland Avenue.

All returned home happy, catching a delightful cold, freezing their ears and gaining all that goes with sleigh riding.

Miss l'ratt's headquarters in Room 201 were made exceedingly attractive, having been reclecorated. Many girls have taken advantage of the opportunity of having this room. The purpose of the Council the first year was to look after the Freshmen, making them feel acquainted and at home. The spirit was shown in one way by having a get-together party for them in the gymnasium. A very good program was given by several Senior girls and light refreshments were served. Later a candy sale was held in their room, the money buying a picture. The Council hopes that Miss Pratt's work may be extended more fully next year, having the cooperation of all the girls throughout the school year.

The 1923 Mirror Staii, composed of ten members of the Senior Class, have had the honor and privilege of serving their school by editing the weekly during the school year of 1922-23. The Staff, upon completing their duties, will have piloted the Mirror through its twenty-fifth consecutive year. During the past year, thirty-five issues of the Mirror have been published, which include: the Freshman Number, Football Special, Senior Girls, Senior Boys, School Referendum, and Junior editions. The Mirror was represented this year by the Editor and Business Manager at the third annual convention of the Central Interscholastic Press Association held at the University of Wisconsin.

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. w By The Editor. 174 175 , 1 L 1 3 5 s 176 f01IKPxI7O 7-V f RMS, IQ Qflh gk 9' '1 Q1 N E AN PIIKAD MW 11015 A 4, f fa no KO KATISHAW f Pl1'Tv amc YUM Yum Pear Do frm- X 7 NANKI P00 mm , K K ,X 'W A U U 223 P4223 -Q! f X L SEIDENQLANZ Q5 WX' Wif- QXEAQ. mf 'iq 5 A E, .

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.

Ehith iKnnavnPli g 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." in 0 0' P lvl 4l'T'i'T'l.'s 186 THE ALEN A 1922 23 SEPT 5 Opens S PT 6 Eleven NewTeac QT3 13' Z5 Ns ps r X Z!

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. Qlaat Banker ..... ............ .... Burglar ........ Sherlock Holmes.. VVatson ........ Secretary .... Judge ......

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.

The man behind the counter 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. 215 1 9 2 3 QC-ID-QE Q-H-I3-il?-HD-Iii 1 9 2 3 3111 Glnnrlnainn 2 .555 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. RAYMOND L.

It starts with ignorance as a base and develops through imagination and knowledge. 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.

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." Make a Good Slari by Buying ibe Things You Need at . . BORDE U CO.
