Many years ago 168 boys and girls broke loose from their mothers'
apron strings, and set forth to explore Wisdom's universe.
After wandering for eight years in they land of Readin', 'Ritin,, and 'Rith-
metic, footsore and weary, yet joyful, they came to a fork in the road. As
they paused there, wondering which way to go, a big lfVhite monster emerged
from the darkness. Under his arm he carried a bundle of neatly-rolled, ribbon-
The children trembled in awe. " Fear not," said the White monster, " I
am your friend. I have come' to present you with a reward for your eight
years of struggle. QProfessor Vlfhite presents diplomasj Seek ye further
" Yea! Yea! " they chorused, 168 strong.
" Then follow this road till you come to the castle of Learning. You
will know it by the letters E. H. S. carved above the door."
Thanking the monster for his interest, the group trudged on. Arriving
at the castle they were greeted by the gate-keeper. " We come in search
of Educationf, they said to him. " The big White monster at the cross-roads
directed us to your castle."
" Have you passports? " asked he.
" Oh, yes! Here they are! " shouted the children Qhanding the gate-
keeper their diplomasj.
VVith a creak and a groan, the big iron door swung open. " Enter," said
the gate-keeper, " but mind ye, the castle is inhabited with bugaboos. Some
of them may say to you, ' Thou shalt not passf But you need fear no harm
from these bugaboos after you once learn to handle them. Chemistry, one
of the most ferocious, can easily be tamed when you learn how to juggle
test-tubes and beakers, and to erect' formulas, such as H20 and the like. If
you angle it right, the Geometry bugaboo will not trouble you either."
Puzzled and awed, yet undaunted by these Words, the youthful knowl-
edge seekers courageously entered, and were immediately conducted to the
ruler of the castle, Lord Goble.
" Ha! Ha! " said Lord Goble. " XVhat a handsome, intelligent company!

at your service. Drink as abundantly as you wish at my fountains of
Wisdom. I ask only that you obey the laws of the court.

ferred upon you if you have faithful been. In four years you may earn the
rank of Graduate.
" You must now choose which paths of learning you will follow. Choose
wisely, study diligently, and stick to your course."
Two years elapsed, after which the title of Junior was bestowed upon
this noble band. They chose leaders from their group to pilot them. For
Lord High Executive, Paul Romeis was their choice. Next in rank came

It was discovered that they possessed rare talents, so Lord Goble sum-
moned them before him to perform. He was pleased and proud of the drama-
tists in " Daddy-Long-Legs " and " Clarence," and he called again and again
for the band and orchestra. Often his ravings were calmed by the beautiful
prima donna Eloise.
The third year soon passed, and our little band of knowledge seekers be-
came known as Seniors, donning the mantle of dignity and supremacy be-
fitting that title.
They entered with zest upon this fourth and last year. New leaders
were chosen. The highest in rank, Alvin Hameister, was one distinguished
not only for his wisdom, but for his sinew and muscle as well. He was
chosen from the footfall squad, of which he was captain.
Others in rank were John Leach, next highest, and Ethel YVaterson,

The end has come, time to part is here,
Forgotten soon the school days that are o'er,
But friendships which our memory will hold dear,
Are left to us of all that's gone before.
For four long years as classmates we were true
To old E. H., the one we loved so well.
The dauntless spirit of our faithful few
To all tlhe world our record did foretell.
The throbbing pulse of all-enthralling youth,
A class of boundless spirits calmed by fearg
Forbodc a glowing future and in truth,
Well pictures us as Freshmen that first year.
Sophomores as champions were unrivaled,
Tho' 'gainst the strongest foemen they were
On eacfh occasion coming off belaurcled-
For sterner battles thus becoming fitted.
Right merrily we greeted Junior friends,
Inditferent to Sophomores rough and rude,
Attentive then to gain our separate ends,
Forgotten too each petty spite and feud.
Seniors each, how great we thought the name
As we began our toilsome upward climb,
A high and lofty purpose was our aim-
To stamp improvement on the wings of time.
Oft to the task our willing backs we bentg
Full many were the lessons conquered there:
Each mastered trouble, a new strength was lent
For meeting squarely trials everywhere.
For us no more the breezy high-school yell,
No more we meet to give our class a cheerg
For us no more the pealing schoolhouse bell,
Something dirns my eyesight-'tis a tear.
Now from the past a message seems to come
To bring sweet solace to our minds' unrest:
" Fret not, my children, for life's busy hum
Is but the mingling of the song and jest!"
Now gleams the brilliant future on our view,
And to our sight a wondrous promise holds,
VVhen hope grows faint our courage to renew
And 'round our hearts a wave of cheer enfolds.
Full many a man of genius great and rare
Is born unknown in regions far remote:
Among our classmates in Life's thoroughfare
Oft we will wonder, Is there one of note?
Let not proud station mock our lowly place,
Our humble ways our destiny obscure,
To be unknown, my friend, is no disgraceg
Renown from paths of honor might allure.
Now, part we must, tho' parting gives us pain,
The world is calling allg we too. must gog
Strive on, dear comrade, thru the rain,
Remember well-men harvest as they sow.
A heritage I fain would leave each one,
Our space is short, l'Man's life is but a span,
So live thy life from dawn to set of sun
That all shall say, 'He lived and died a Man."'

How can we leave thee, dear old Elgin High?
Does it not grieve thee, as now we say good bye?

And the pleasant hours we've spent
Forever more are past.

All these to you we owe.

N January and June of 1921 several hundred students met the require-
ments of the Board of Education and were handed passports which
allowed them to take passage on the good ship E. H. S. for a four-year
cruise on boundless " Sea of Training."
We were known as the Class of '25 and bore the distinction of being
the largest group of passengers ever taken on board since that well-known
vessel was launched. We chronicled no events of much importance in the
first year of our voyage, but in our second year out we developed the ability
along all athletic lines which has enabled our class to be well represented
in the champion and near champion teams of the present year H9241 We
were the first class to present to the public a Sophomore Class Play. Miss
Carr must be given due credit for the success of this production.
The third, or past year of the cruise has been more eventful than those
preceding. The superior officers of E. H. S., feeling that we had now gained
sufficient knowledge to wisely " paddle our own canoe " allowed us to select
three officers to pilot our craft through the year. VVe elected Clayton Stone
to serve as Captain, Oswald Hill as Commander and Amy Salmons as Purser.
The selection of navy blue and camel as class colors was carried out in
sweaters. A movie and sleighride were sponsored by us and both proved
VVith the cooperation of the Class of '24 we succeeded in bringing back
to E. H. S. the school dances discontinued over a year ago and to inaugurate

football and basketball teams for next year Q1925j. This is a signal honor
for the class, as it is seldom that one man has the ability to pilot two school

N September 4, 1923, one hundred fifty-four dignified students hurried into 211
and donned the new name of Sophomore. Why should 'they feel stuck-up?
Now, they could boss and look down on 'the Freshies. What fun it was to see
them scurrying around trying to locate themselves!
As soon as the call came for men to play on the football team, a large number
signed up. Of course. the pile diminished somewhat, but a few remained throughout
In basketball, the captain and a large portion of the players came from the tenth
grade. One boy's efforts gave him the opportunity of following fthe team, as a sub,
to the state championship and later to Chicago when they were runners-up for the
The girls were not as successful as they could have been, but they did not care
to see the Seniors and Juniors weep land moan just because they were not able to
defeat their lower classmen. Besides, the Sophs wanted to be very courteous to
them since they will soon be leaving E. H. S.
We fhave not taken an active part in baseball, but succeeded in getting along
pretty well in the track meet, considering the number of men who "tried out."
We feel sure 'tfhat we ought to gather a collection, donfations, pledges, have a
sandwich sale, or do something to get up a fund so that we can present Earl Tenny
with a prize of some sort to show that we appreciate his faithfulness in attending all
the games. Perhaps the school would not care to back the proposition.
In the middle of the school year we welcomed a large number of new Sophomores
to help us to enjoy our name.
VV'hen we heard about the ninth and tenth grade reading contest, we felt sure
that we could get something, so we sent Verona Nolting as one of our contestants.
Of course she read her way to first place. VVe nearly had a stiff neck the next day
because of our 'haughtiness the day before. but we managed to survive.
Sometime during the first semester was organized a Junior Latin Club under
the capable supervision of Miss Purkiss and Miss Pierce. The other club would not
admit us, so we just decided to show t'hem that they could not keep us off the map.
Because of their brilliancy a large number of French and Spanish 'students were ad-
mitted to Le Cercle Frlancais and Los Estomidos.
We feel sure that some Dantes, Farrars, Carusos, or Galli-Curcis will be found
among those from our class who play in the band or orchestra and sing in the Glee
Now for the Dramatics. First of all, some of the best and funniest stunts in the
Komedy Koncert were put on almost entirely by Sophomores. Second, manyiThes-

When they first spoke of having a Student Council we chose our representatives
and they were ready for work almost -as soon as our upper-classmen. They were the
ringleaders, so we could not hope to compare ourselves with them,
All in all, we feel that we have done our share during the past year.

Coach " Curly " Wilson, although serving his first year as Athletic Director, has
made a record both in football and basketball that is hard to beat. Taking a bunch
of green material in football, he built up the greatest fighting team Elgin ever had.
He instilled in the fellows a spirit of cooperation and fight such as had never been
seen on the Elgin gridiron. The lightweight basketball team under his direction tied
for championship-a thing which had never before been done by an Elgin lightweight
team. After the lightweight season he took over the heavyweight team in the absence
of Vogel and guided them through the state tournament to Elgin's first state cham-
Coach " Ott " Vogel, brought to Elgin to take charge of the heavyweight basket-
ball team and to assist Wilson, is an ex-Illini star. He brought with him the short
pass game of Illinois and built up a state champion basketball team. He won the
confidence of every fellow on the squad and at any time they were ready to give all
they had to win a game for him. Having taken his team through the Big Seven un-
defeated, " Ott " was forced to leave them, being under contract to the Chicago Cubs.
Although he was not here to lead his team in winning the state championship, he
truly is the builder of Elgin's first state champion basketball team.
Coach " Curly " Haligas, last year's lightweight football coach, will be lost to the
High School coaching staff next year. " Curly " has been placed in charge of all grade
school athletics. His last team displayed the same old fight and clean football char-
acteristic of all his former machines. "Curly," being an Elgin High School graduate
and former football star, knows the game from beginning to end. The lightweights
will miss him next year, but we are looking to " Curly " to develop some good men in
the grade schools who can be turned into stars when they reach High School.
Coach Piper, the newest addition to the coaching staff, is the track coach, and
will also take charge of the lightweight football team next year. He has had a great
deal of training along athletic lines and should turn out a winning track team. ' As
to the lightweight football team, we are sure that with the amount of material com-
ing out, Piper will put a team in the field that Elgin High will be proud of.
Manager Waggoner, better known as "Wag," is the man who takes care of the
business end of the athletics. He is known and liked by every player in High School,
and although not a coach, he is constantly with the fellows at every practice and at
every game, doing all he can and assisting the coaches in every possible way. " Wag "
is always ready to help any fellow, and backs the team to the limit-win or lose. His
never-failing spirit inspires 'the fellows to give all they have to win. It has often been
remarked during the last year that " Wag " is the best High School manager in the

spirit at heart, and were doing this work to get into condition for their training
On the twenty-second of August five automobiles loaded with boys, football
equipment, and most of all, spirit, left Elgin for Camp Wildwood, located on Green
Bay. in the woods of northern Wisconsin. After arriving there we found the camp
situated on the shore of the bay and at the bottom of a hill which was one-half mile
in length. I might add here that Wilson saw the possibilities of developing leg-driving
power when he gave orders to the effect that no one should walk up the hill, but
should run always. This we didg we even ran up the hill before breakfast, and oh,
the appetites we had after that mile jaunt every morning!
The routine of camp life, eve11 thou-gh five hours were spent in vigorous football
practice, appealed to us all. Every one gained from Eve to ten pounds of valuable
"beef." In the morning we made our beds, got water, and split Erewood for the
cooks before XfVilson called us to the field. After dinner from twelve-thirty to one-
thirty o'clock we rested. Then, after two hours of hard practice, we took that daily
plunge into the cold lake water. The water felt ice cold to all of us, but Tenny swam
around as if it were of ordinary temperature. How he did it no one knows. Now we
were at liberty. Some played horseshoes, others played cards, while others went hiking,

Captain . Alvin Hameilter
To "Abie Hameister goes the honor of being captain of the greatest fighting
team Elgin has ever had. "Abe" played tackle, and, although a light man for the
position, stopped everything that came his way. He was and did all that any captain
could possibly be or do.
Captain-elect Herbert Hill
M Herbie " Hill. the " little fighting fool," filled the position at quarterback. He
was the spirit of the team, directing and commanding like a general. Herb won the
respect and confidence of all t-he fellows, and with a good bunch back next year we
look for a championship team.
" Pat " Bolger, one of the greatest place-kickers Elgin ever turned out, played
fullback. Although on account of injuries he did not run with the ball much he made
up for it by his kicking and passing. " Stop Bolger" was the ery of all our opponents.
Morley, the plunging Sophomore, was responsible for most of Elgin's ground
gaining. He is a fast, hard-hitting never-stop plunger, and with two more years ahead
of him should be the best in the conference.
" Ossie " Hill, playing the other half, is surely a fit running mate for Morley. When-
ever he took the ball it meant two or three yards.
Fred Lehman, left end. is a fast and dependable man. Fred played a steady, con-
sistent game, and is a tackler of no mean ability.
" Dina " Gromer, the big Sophomore tackle, played a pretty game. stopping every-
thing that came 'his way. In his next two years he should develop into one of the
grealtest tackles Elgin ever produced. '
I Clarence Jewett '
Clarence jewett, Elgin's All-Conference guard, is the fastest. hardest-hitting guard
in the Big Seven. Although this was his first and only year as a regular, he made a.
name for himself that will not soon be forgotten. '
" Fat " Tenny, Elgin's 210 pound center, is a sure. accurate passer, and on the
defense is almost a stone wall. He has two more years, and we are expecting great
things from him.
" Kenny " Pflaum, the find of the season, played both at tackle and at guard. He
is a fast, aggressive man, and a sure tackler. "Kenny" is also All-Conference.
Paul Romeis, Elgin's "hard-luck " right end, is a fast man, and one of the hardest
and surest tacklers in the Big Seven. Although only playing in four conference games
because of injuries, he received All-Conference mention.
" Hod " Hameister. Abe's bro-ther. played rigih-t guard and next to Abie. These two
brothers are a hard combination to beat, being both fast and hard-hitting.

after more honors, and got them by winning the Sectional Tourna-

game. Elgin knew they had a hard game ahead of them, since Streator
had defeated Rockford the night before. The score was very close all through
the first three quarters, but Elgin played the game of their lives, and won,
35-23. The second game was not so hard, the Maroons defeating XVaukegan,

they could keep up their long record of victories, but fell before the Maroons.

RESH from their victory at Joliet, the Elgin "VVonder" basketball
team, representing Northern Illinois, went to Urbana to the state
finals. The team was greatly handicapped by the fact that Semeny,
Elgin's great guard, had wrenched his shoulder at Joliet, and things looked
worse when we drew, as our opponents in the first game, Canton, the hardest
team of the bunch. However, the fellows had their old fighting spirit, and,
when they entered that game on Friday night, they had a determination
that could not be beaten. The Canton game was one of the wildest night-
mares that the Elgin fans ever experienced. Leading at the half ll-6, Elgin
slumped, and Canton, who were playing a pretty passing game, but could
not find the basket, came back until toward the end of the game they were
within one point of tying the score. It was then a matter of see-saw, back
and forth, neither team playing up to form and missing repeatedly. The
end, however, was plain, for the fighting determination of the Elgin team
could not be downed and it was that spirit and nothing else that won the
Canton game, 16-14.
Entering the final game with Athens on Saturday night as the under-
dogs and conceded not even a ghost of a chance to win by many, Elgin
came to and played the game of their lives. They out-fought and out-
generaled the bewildered Athens five in every department. Semeny, play-
ing practically with one hand, ran rings around his opponents and showed
himself at all times a master of the situation. Hill's fight, Lang's consistent
basket shooting, Mills' deadly eye for the wicket, and Solyom's uncanny
guarding, together with Semeny's wonderful floor game, won for Elgin its
first state championship, by a score of 28-17 over Athens. Elgin played as
one man, working the ball down with remarkable speed and accuracy, and
after the first quarter the final outcome of the game was never in doubt.
Elgin was further honored when the all-state team, picked by the officials,
was announced. It is as follows:

FTER a week of wild celebration and honor, E1gin's State Champions
traveled to the invitation tournament at Chicago, into which had
been entered the cream of the High School teams of the country.
E1gi11 drew Emporia, the Kansas State Champions, as their first oppo11ents.
Emporia's team consisted of four four-year men and one three-year man-
all big a11d fast. Elgin was off forn1 decidedly and after the first half the
defense broke, letting Emporia's " Cornhuskers " run wild. The fellows
had been robbed of their determination before they left Elgin that morn-
ing, and so, playing a game without their minds and hearts in it. they lost
to Emporia 30-15. '
However, after seeing t11at the students at least were backing them
with a large delegation in Chicago, the team came back in the Consolation
Tournament and won three' games in old-time form, placing themselves in
the finals on Saturday night. But the long grind of the tournaments was
telling on them and in the hnal game with XYarrensburg, Missouri, for third
place in the National Tournament they were nosed out, after staging a des-
perate rally in the final quarter, by a 34-27 score.
Elgin was greatly 1101'10I'Cd in having Captain " Soup " Semeny placed

forward, not so fiashy, but always there with a basket when it is needed most.
Harry Lang, Elgin veteran center, is a true running mate for Hill, being consistent
and always dependable. Never was there a more untiring, steady, hard-working player
"Gaga " Mills, the little fighting forward, possesses an uncanny eye for the basket,
which was a determining factor in E1gin's victories. He is back next year and should

fect 'harmony with Semeny, " Andy " displayed some wonderful guarding, especially
during the tournament play. '
Clayton Stone .
" Bates" Stone, the "pinch-hitter" of the Elgin team, is another man with a
deadly eye for the basket. " Bates " is a crafty, careful player, and always present with

depended upon to deliver the goods when sent in.
"Ossie" Hill, running guard, filled Semeny's position in case of Semeny's absence

" Chap " Wells is a fast, flashy forward, and, when Chap is hot, the old ball rolls
through that wicket with regularity.
Kenneth Pfiaum, playing back guard until declared ineligible by the ninth semester
ruling, deserves a great deal of credit for his work in winning the first games of the

from seeing the fellows work out each night we are able to predict
a good many first places.
Captain Fred Lehman, a three-letter man, is going great in the broad

sure to break the conference record, as he is throwing the spear way over

Phelan, the veteran miler and last year "E" man, looks unbeatable

Bryant, the leading dash man, bids fair to cop some speed honors for
himself. He looks capable of filling Austin's shoes.
Newsome, the dusky lad, is Morley's running mate, and steps the 220

runs the 440 like a veteran.
The half-milers, Austin and Heiman, bid fair to be in the front ranks.

EXN' football seasons are fraught with greater surprises than the sea-
son of 1923. lt seemed that about all we had was a prayer-only
three men returning from a team that won only one game in the
conference the preceding year.
However, stimulated by Captain Hameister's successful attempt in mak-
ing possible a training trip to northern Wlisconsin, and the securing of
the services of Coach M. E. VVilson. each and every member of the team
put forth every effort possible to make a successful team.
Too much credit cannot be given to Coach XVilson and the "Fighting
Maroons of 1923 " for their successful season. The pilot of 1924, H. Hill,
has already won a place in the hearts of all with whom he has come- in con-
tact. His spirit of " Never Down Hhhis ability as a player and his natural
leadership are bound to be large factors toward a successful year in 1924.
The basketball season of 1923-24 can never be forgotten by Elgin High
Captain Semeny. possibly the best High School player in the country,
led the team through the year as only a veteran is able to do. Assuming
the duties of head basketball coach, Qtto Vogel gave to the team the coach-
ing and technique necessary to a state championship team. To win the state
championship a team must have exceptional teaching, wonderful endur-
ance, complete cooperation and ability. The Elgin High School team was
not lacking in any of these. Coach Ruby of lllinois made a true statement
when he said, " The best team won state honors," and Herbie Hill leads the
1924-25 team. VVe predict for him another successful season.

This is not only because a larger number take part in each event, but
also because new sports are being added. This year hockey was added
and golf revived. These brought out many more girls, and as they become
established they will probably attract many more.
Credit for this increasing interest is largely due to Miss Logan, who
since she has been here has introduced several new sports and given her time
to making them successful. It is her wish to have enough different types
of athletics so that girls who do- not care for one sport may participate in
another. This was worked out for the first time this fall when hockey, golf,
and volleyball were being played during the same season.
This year in girls' athletics has been perhaps the best one we have ever
had. No class has received all the victories, though the Seniors and Juniors
have won more than the others, as might be expected and, more important
still, a large number of girls have been getting healthy exercise.
All that might be wished has not been accomplished. During the basket-
ball season the Gym was available only two nights a week, and sometimes
not that often. It was also hard to get a field for outdoor sports. Considering
these handicaps, girls' athletics have done very well, and one wonders what
might be accomplished with better facilities.

HE league haskethall tournament is held each year in preparation for
the interclass games. This year about one hundred fifty girls signed
up, making sixteen teams. The preliminary games were played ot?
in the few days' vacation after 'K finals." Because no team had a monopoly
on the star players, these games were all close. The difficulty of getting
the gym made it necessary to play the final and semi-linal games the same
afternoon, hut this did not prevent them from heing hard-fought contests.
The final game was between V. llawthorne's team, the "T's," and l..

lllS was the lirst year that hockey had been played in lilgin. The
clubs were purchased three years ago, but little was done because
of the lack of a lield. This year a field was marked out on the old
l.ord's l'arl: baseball diamond and practices were held there and on the foot-
ball ileld. The sport was open to junior and Senior girls only. The Academy
girls also practiced and there was an understanding that a game would be
played between the two schools. Meanwhile class teams were formed. with
.lanet Lowrie as Senior captain and Lorene Muntz as hlunior captain. and
a series of games arranged. The Seniors won the first two games, making
a third unnecessary. The scores were: Seniors 3. hluniors O. and Seniors
3, juniors l.
The .Xcademy games were played in November on the .Xcademy lield.
The lligh School team displayed more teamwork and better all-around play
than did their opponents. They kept the ball in Academy territory almost
constantly. Only once was the High goal seriously in danger. The first
half ended 4-O and the game 6-O. in favor of the High School.

OR the third time the Junior girls won the Baseball Championship this
year, having won this title both last year and the year before, in
their Sophomore and Freshman years. The class of " '25's " success is
due to two things-first, they have a good team, and second, they have an
excellent pitcher. ln their first game they overwhelmed the Freshmen by a
score of 18 to 4. The Sophomores held them down a little, but they also
held the Sophomores down and the final score was 8 to 1. The Seniors, with
hopes of a championship, put up a good fight, but had to take the short end
of a 10 to 7 score.
The Junior line-up was: D. Roberts, M. Bowen fp. Captj, H. McMahon,
M. Pierson, M. McMahon, D. Vylolff, N. Cotton, F.. Franz, H. Vtfilkening, M.

Concert was presented. The Mirror Board, under whose supervision

The unusually fine program was made the more enjoyable by a new

during these was greatly appreciated.
A typical college boy's room was the scene of " A Girl Made to Order."
The necessity of explaining where father's money was being spent caused

" The Steadfast Tin Soldier " was full of airy dancing and singing, with
good stage setting.
" The Fatal Quest," another Faculty stunt, brought down the house
with laughter. The characters gave their own stage directions and each
part was in the third person. The devoted "queen," the dashing young
'fduke," and the "beautiful princess " will long be remembered by those

UNORS were brought to Elgin High School through the ellorts of
llattie Huetter and Ethel XYaterson, who represented us in the ex-
temporaneous speaking contest of April 11, l924. The nlany cou-
testants drew slips on which was written a topic of national or international
importance. These were the topics on which they spoke. Each was given
an hour's time for preparation, but without magazine or textbook. Miss
lYaterson's topic was " The l'hilippines," while Miss lluetter drew the sub-
ject of " The Ku Klux Klan." This is an exceedingly diflicult one on which
to talk, for a neutral stand has to be taken by the speaker in order not to
tread on some one's toes. This was inost unfortunate for Miss Huetter.
Miss XYaterson, however, came nobly to the rescue and won second place
in the contest.
On May 2, 1924, we were represented in the speaking' contest at Big

to be. Both bands have contributed to making' the school spirit better
than it has ever been before. The First meeting of the Boys' Band
was held on October 15 and on November 3 it played at the Rockford foot-
ball game. It has made unusually rapid progress.
The large instruments are furnished by the school, while all who
play solo instruments furnish their own. The band meets outside of school
hours-during the noon hour. There are now about forty members.
The new maroon and cream uniforms add greatly to the appearance of
the band. The uniform consists of a maroon overseas cap, a maroon coat.
cream trousers, and black leather puttees.
The band is being backed by the Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs. A great
deal of credit is due Mr. Liska for the rapid progress and success of the

LASS DAY marked the first event on the calendar for Commence-

ing of May thirty-first, where the-re was much rivalry between the
Juniors and Seniors over the display of class colors. V
The next evening, June first, was the Senior Class Dance, held in the
Gymnasium. The committees spared neither time nor trouble in p1'epar-
ing for the dance, and it proved to be one of the biggest events in the Seniors'
career. The Gym looked lovely decked in branches of apple blossoms and
the class colors. Stone's Novelty Orchestra furnished snappy music, and
everyone had a wonderful time.
A fine Baccalaureate Sermon was given Sunday, june third, by Rev-
erend j. F. Vonckx of the Presbyterian Church. He brought out many
helpful points which should prove very valuable to the graduates in the
A wise choice was made in deciding to have the Class Picnic at Oak
Ridge. This came the day after flnals, and consequently all enjoyed them-
selves much more. The afternoon was spent in playing games, running
races, dancing and canoeing. Then there was a big feed, more dancing, and
the class went home, feeling that the picnic had been a great success.
Finally, after four years of hard work, but also four years of pleasure,
happiness and good times, the long-awaited, happiest, and most satisfying
event of the high school student's life-graduation-came to pass. The
Commencement Exercises took place in the Auditorium, Thursday evening,
june seventh, at eight o'clock. Loie Granke played the march, and the Class
of ,ZS took their seats for the last time as students of E. H. S. It was the
first time that the girls had been allowed to wear colored dresses, and in
the soft pastel shades, with corsage bouquets. they made a lovely picture.
Mr. H. C. Blair, the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, was the
speaker of the evening and delivered a very fine message. The Girls' Glee
Clubs sang several musical numbers, and George Brandenburg, the Class
President, gave a short talk. Mr. Harris presented the diplomas to the
graduates, who then became alumni.
Now we, the Class of 1924, as our Commencement is approaching, look
forward to it eagerly, although our hearts are sad at the thought of leaving
our dear Alma Mater. But we know that the classes following us will
have as many good times and make as many real friends as we have, and
they can be sure that in the future they will hear more of us.

T the close of the football season the football " li" men and mem-
bers of the Board of Education were guests at a banquet given by
the Athletic Board. The banquet was held in the l.ibrary, which was
appropriately decorated for the occasion. The tables formed a large " lf "
with two large goal posts at either end, wound with Maroon and Cream
crepe paper and decorated with large bows, The place cards had figures
of football players on them and there were large Maroon " li's " on the nap-
kins. Much credit is due the llomestie Science classes, who prepared and
served the dinner.
T. .X. Larsen was the toastmaster, and his wit and eleverness in intro-
ducing the speakers were appreciated by everyone, especially the team.
Coach XYilson presented the members of the heavyweight and lightweight
teams with their letters, emblems and fobs. Several members of the Board
gave short talks, as did Mr. XYaggoner, Captain Alvin llameister and Captain-
elect llerbie llill. XYe have had a wonderful season under "Abe's" line
leadership, and we wish " llerbie " lots o' luck for an even more success-
ful season next year.
A similar banquet is being planned for the basketball " li" men. lie-

UR Girls' Athletic Club had more parties and good times than ever
this year. To make it more interesting the club was divided into
rival factions, the " Peps " and the " Impsf' and there was a great

Jan Lowrie as a tall, lank, leany professor, Margaret XValmuth as a homely
old maid, Gertie Carbaugh as--well, something all fluffy with a little red
parasol, and Lucille Roth as Pierrot were the lucky ones. After the eats

OCKEY was revived this year at E. H. S., and a picked team from
the Juniors and Seniors beat the Academy. A banquet was given
in their honor, held in the Drawing Room. The tables were in the
form of an " E " with a hockey field in the middle, kewpie dolls representing
the players. '
The hockey letters were presented, and Helen Herbster, as toastmis-
tress, called on Misses Logan, Rickert, and Pratt and also the team cap-
tains, who responded with short talks.
The menu consisted of baked ham, baked potatoes, rolls, fruit salad
and pie at la mode. After dinner there was dancing in the gym, and going
home the girls decided that a feed like that was worth all their hard practice.

GAIN this year the school dances were given under the supervision
of Miss Pratt and with the help of a committee appointed from the
junior and Senior classes. They were planned for every two weeks.
and proved successful.
The Friday before Christmas vacation a Christmas party was put on by
the committee. There was a large Christmas tree in the center of the Hoor,
and an enlarged orchestra. There was, also, a grand march and an old-
fashioned grand right-and-left, and there were red and white and yellow
striped candy canes for everybody. Nearly the whole school came to the
party, and all agreed that those who were not present were rather " out of
luck." The school orchestra furnished peppy music for all the dances.
The dances were to be tried again this year to see if the student body
showed enough interest in them that they should be continued. judging
from the large number present every two weeks, the school seems to have
given its hearty approval and support. Green Freshmen to staid Seniors
were seen gaily "tripping the light fantastic," and this year, in everybody's
opinion, the school dances " went over big."

NVho could have told that they were not young Freshmen, enjoying them-
selves as young Freshmen do? The snowballs flew thick and fast, result-
ing in several near casualties.
But for a' that, the Senior sleighride was voted a positive " knockout."
There were eats at Dundee, where a little play took place which might be
aptly called the " Mystery of the Three Spoons." Then there was the dra-
matic meeting with the Academy Tenors and more eats at the Kelley. The
Romeis, Gilles, Brown Company, Incorporated, put on a little program
which was varied as it was delightful.
And " the morning after the night before " some said they ducked snow-
balls all night in their sleep.

STUDENT council for E. H. S. promises great accomplishments. For
several years the school has wanted some form of student govern-
ment and has tinally found the solution in a council. Its main purpose
is to construct a firmer understanding between the faculty and the students,
to give us more cooperation.
A constitutional committee. composed of Alvin Hameister, Beth VVing,
Eugene Bohl, Clarence Iewett. Gertrude Carbaugh from the Senior Class,
Clayton Stone, Oswald Hill, Viola Ashman. George Schmidt from the Junior
Class, Eda Bach, Tom Morley from the Sophomore Class, Earl Kelley from
the Freshman Class, drew up a constitution and organized plans for a coun-
cil. The classes sent their representatives and a president was elected from
the student body.
Its first step was to appoint two Junior members on the Maroon staff,
so they could understand the work and make a better annual in the years
to come. It had countless other problems to solve, a book exchange the
greatest, but with a united elfort nothing is too difficult to attempt.
The council consists of eleven members, including two CX-Of:ilCl0.H1Cl11-

Ye Ballad of git Percy
Sir Percy was a knight of old,
He used to knock all comers c
He rode a horse, a noble steed,
'Twas built for comfort, not for speed.
He bore a shield, also a lance,
And wore the best cast iron pants.
And when he wished to be at ease,
He lounged in leathern B. V. Ds.
Now Kismuh was the sweetest maid
That in the Sultan's harem playedg
Her eyes were of the fairest hue,
She looked just like an ingenue.
Her clothes were latest harem style-
A silken veil, a witching smileg
When she before Abdullah passed
They had to lash him to the mast.
Sir Percy made a grand crusade,
Some Turks he slew and some he slayed.
He slaughtered Turks in manner rough,
And kept the tally on his cuffg
He Ht and fought with manly pride.
"Jerusa1em!" was all he cried.
He made those Turks look up in fea
Till some Moslem low chawed off hi
Then Kismuh came, the fight to see,
With wigor, Wim, witalityg
And to revive him danced awhile
Like Cleopatra on the Nile:
Cried he, "What do they call you. kid?
"Kismuh," cried sheg you bet he did-
And when the evening shadows came,
He still was asking her, her name.

The Curse of Drink
lPrintez1 through the courtesy of VV. T. A. S. and dedicated by special request to Helen Glos, who so
kindly submitted this poem.I
I have followed the hearse of all my hopes,
I have buried them one by one.
Gaze upon me and you will see
What the curse of drink has done.
I, too, had a home, a wife and a child,
But now I am all alone. '
Oh, goodness, I should never have taken
That first insidious ice cream cone.
But I was so young and my friends they were false.
"Just one cannot hurt you," they said.
And I started one night and look at me now-
Ye mackerel! what a life I have led!
My mother said, "Willie, lay off that vanillyg
Them there phosphates will lead you astray,
And the devil himself is in sasparilly,
And his den in them fountains so gay."
But fool that was I laughed her to scorn,
I thought I could take it or leave it alone.
And I drank that same day a chocolate frappe-
My heavens! if I had but known!
That was the start of my downfall, my friends.
From then on it was easy to flit
From a pathway of vice to a pineapple ice
And that hellish banana split.
And then one day an angel came into my life.
"I love you, Willie," she said.
And I loved her so dearly that for one long year nearly
A temperate life I led.
Then a baby came as babies will
And it grew to a babbling child.
But I craved all the time just the juice of o11e lime
And the thought of that drove me wild.
Then one night I fell into an ice cream den
I slinked with a sinful slink.
And when night came on I staggered horne
Again the victim of drink.
Those days of shame are a horrible dream
That will haunt till the days of my death.
This morn when I kissed my child she cried in accents wild
" Daddy, you have raspberry crush on your breath."
VVhat will become of this wreck of a man:
This quivering, broken reed?
"Another coca-cola, with a straw," I cried-
My goodness, what a life I lead.

A Senior's Inventory
This story I am going to tell
Will make you think my head did swell
But no, the wrong idea you have gotg
To tell the truth it's full of shot.
I thought I knew a lot one day
My history and civics, always I could say.
But once while resting at my desk
I wondered at which study I was best.
My facts in history had quickly run away
I knew not why was made the 4th of July
Washington, Grant and Lee
Were total strangers now to me.
Who the father of my country is
I can't remember now.
Nor did I know until today
The North and South were in a
In Civics even less I know
About the laws of this great State.
Maybe the President can wear a crown
And a greenhorn civil rights may take.
And now in knowledge I will graduate.
To school no more I'll come.
So study, kids, at a good old rate,
As afterwards 'twill be no fun.

EXTRA! EXTRA! FACULTY SCANDAL! FACULTY MEMBER' IN BIG CRIME
W. H. P. Huber Sentenced to Life lmprisonment.-Used Fictitious Names
Willie Horse Power Huber, teacher of the science of bunk at the Elgin High
School, is involved in the greatest corrupt scandal the world has ever known since
George Washington crossed the Fox River in a bath tub in the battle of Copenhagen.
Huber, it is said, is a notorious bad man and has used many fictitious names.
His real name, it developed today, is Huber Sparks. He has been going under the name
of Willie Horse Power and others.
Huber Sparks has been teaching in the High School to cover up his dastardly
deeds. He taught many of the sub normals of that institution, the art of chewing gum
without action of the jaws, and how to make a noiseless electric explosion with the
aid of illuminating gas and second-hand safety matches.
He was discovered by T. Arthur Larsen, the faculty sheik and detective, when he
fHuberJ was intoxicated with his knowledge. Sheik Larsen immediately turned him
over to Electrode Fairchild, chief of police.
H. Sparks was bound over to Shock Wag's court for immediate trial. The battle
waged all that day and well into the night before the decision was reached.
Huber Sparks entered the room with tears of carbolic acid running down his thin,
hollow, sunken cheeks, and his slender, narrow-shouldered body was bent over like
that of a five year old boy playing soldier on his rocking horse. The prisoner knew
that the cruel Judge Wag would never allow him to set eyes on that most beloved
treasure of his, that large, beautiful, magnificent, radiant Ford. Well knew the
guilty culprit that the treasure of his life, the thing that had kept him alive all these
years, would be snatched out of his life. That beautiful Ford, manufactured in the
city of Detroit in the year of 1910, A. D., would be gone-forever.
Huber was carried into the courtroom by his fellow members of the bootleggers'
union and his able attorney-Negative Pierce.
Positive Miller acted for the state and was so positive that he positively won his
Magnet Goble, Dynamo Wilson and Arc-Light Vogel, all from the state of Coma,
acted as witnesses.
The trial began. The room was filled, arguing and persuading. Teeth gnashedg
knives flashedg nose met list. In one of these bloody pugilistic encounters, Positive
Miller at last made positive that "a sock on the foot is worth two on the jaw."
At last Judge Wag got order and Positive Miller Qwith three teeth missing, a black
eye, and a bloody nosejj took the stand triumphantly and in all his glory. He charged
the prisoner with assault and battery and demanded a death sentence.
Negative Pierce did a wonderful job of defending, but had no luck.
H. Sparks was called to dance to the cross wired testimony and the crowd of
spectators on the chandeliers and in the gutter went wild with excitement and white
judge Wag. the mighty terror of the wicked, called out in his husky voice fone
like your grandmother has when she has a coldj sharply.
"What is your name?
" What is your occupation?
" Of what are you charged?
" Hurry upl We haven't all day."
H. Sparks then replied in his deep, oratorical voice, "My name is Sparks. I am
an electrician and I am charged with battery."
Wag got so mad that his face was covered with a beaming smile and he quietly
remarked in a loud voice-
1924 Q W g THE MAROON W 3 Q 1924
"Put him in a dry cell and let him break currents."
There was dismay, anger, joy, amazement and even an odor of garlic and sauer
kraut in the room at the same time.
The prisoner was filled with joy and sinking in a swoon he was unconscious for
hours. He is now at his task of breaking currents at the state capital.
Huber is also flattening out Radiotran Taylor's, Coil Hance's and Radio Angell's
pocketbooks. They pay the taxes to feed Huber. He is living on a diet of jello and
a thousand meter of spaghetti per day. .
Miss Welty-" Stewart Gillis, what are the two genders?"
Stewie-"Masculine and feminine. The masculine are divided into temperate and

She said sweet things but I could tell
She went and told her sister Nell
How she varnped me and how I fell.

The Random Shot
I shot an arrow into the airg
It fell in the distance, I knew not where
Till a neighbor said it killed his calf
And I had to pay him six and one-half.
I bought some poison to slay rats
And a neighbor swore it killed his cats,
And rather than argue across the fence
I paid four dollars and fifty cents.
One night I set sailing a toy balloon
And hoped it would soar till it reached the moon,
But the candle fell on a farmer's straw,
And he said I must settle or go to law,
And that is the Way with the random shot-
It never hits the proper spot.
And the joke you spring that you think so smart
May leave a wound in some fellow's heart.

Caesar Ha! Ha!
BY GUM SHOE GUS, 24
Oh! when I entered High School
I was a happy lad.
First year Latin wasn't so hard,
But Caesar was too bad.
Caesar conquered many men,
And many nations conquered he,
But in the second chapter
Caesar conquered me.
At home I took my sad, sad grade
I trembled to my shoe
But when I showed my card to Pa,
He said, "I flunked it too."
Bill Lathin thinks he's hard because he eats half-baked potatoes, hard-boiled
eggs, brick ice cream, and rock candy and he drinks hard water.
"You are no gentleman," Mollie Yaffe said, "if you think I said such a thing as
she said you said I said I had said."
" Dear girl," Herbie replied, " you must not think I think you must be that kind of
a girl I think you must be if you said such a thing as you said she said I said you said
you had said."
It seems he knew she knew he knew she said just what she said she heard he had
heard her say, but with intuitive feminine tact she accepted the apology.

I would longer linger, if I could linger longer, but I can no longer linger.

My mother always chooses my clothes, but she never picks the pockets.
A good way to raise cabbage is with a knife and fork.
The best way to get fat is to go to a butcher shop and buy it.
The best way to make a pair of pants last is to make the coat and vest first.

"Bud" Parlasca-I can go with any girl I please.
"Hoot" Gibson-Yes, but you don't please many.
Gilles-Which bertih in a Pullman is the cheapest?
Romeis-Well, to tell the truth, the upper is lower, because it's higher, but because
it's higher that makes it lower. The lower is higher because it's lower, but if you take
the upper, then it will be lower because it's higher.

sufficient funds to make this annual a financial success.
In the past years, advertising seemed to be the only method of
obtaining the necessary money, but this year a new plan was tried. Many
of the merchants, professional men, business men and manufacturers of
our town purchased a Maroon, giving their loyal support to a high school
project that will long be remembered.
VVe are greatly indebted to these men, for without their backing our
annual could not be successfully published.
The Class of '24 thank you all for your sincere interest and coopera-
