We hope that the book is a mirror to reHect the life of Elgin High, particularly of the Senior, as a bright spot uf sunshine in the years to come. And to you, teachers and students, who are reHected in the grinds, attribute any distortion you may find to il slight convexity of the mirror at this point, and try a grin to replace it. Finally, We earnestly thank every person, who has helped to make this book worthy of our Alma Mater i sfxx ' fi W ,I , THQ ?

The death of Helen took from our class a girl of splendid character, ability, and ideals. Every one who knew her valued her friendship highly, and her passing away was an irrevocable loss to the whole school. PAUL VINCENT ABBOTT Died August twenty-fifth, nineteen hun- dred and twenty-four. Another shadow was cast upon the class with the death of our fellow student, Paul. His smile and personality gained him many true friends, who will always rnourn his un- expected death.

VVhen two hundred and thirty-six enthusiastic young Freshmen entered in IQ22 they looked forward to the time when they would bear the name of 'fdignified Senior". Now that time has passed, and all too swiftly, perhaps, for those who were busied in the activities of the school. - As Freshmen they showed their ability in claiming honors, by winning a silver cup, in the Banking contest. Gutside of this there were no other important events during their Freshman and Sophomore years, but whenever there were any ac- tivities such as basketball and football games, parades, and reading contests, they were alert in boosting the project. The Junior year made up for the other two, and started out with a Hwhizz- bang" by selecting the following officers: Hayward Biggers, president, ElRoy Gromer, vice-president, and Eleanor Lea, secretary. The first problem which confronted the class was the choice of the class colors, and when the Juniors ap- peared before Christmas in their navy blue sweaters with copper letters, remarks suggested that they had used good judgment in their selection. In every class there is one big question to be dissolved, "how will the money be raised?" Their solution during their Junior year was a series of sandwich sales, a movie, and the class play. The latter, 'fSeventeen", a comedy by Booth Tar- kington, proved to be a great success, and swelled the treasury. In the annual "Big 7" Reading Contest, Elgin was represented by two members of the Junior class, and in the Declamation contest by one member. In both contests honors were brought to the school by these pupils winning places. The Junior year was brought to a close with a picnic held at Pottawatamie Park. At last their ambition was fulfilled, that of being "dignified Seniorsv, and they entered with enthusiasm. New leaders who were to pilot the class through the last year were chosen, with Lloyd Vonckx, president, Francis Howard, vice- president, and Elizabeth Sorn, secretary. The entire class formed a Booster Club, which had Clifford Gustafson for president, Helen VVing for vice-president, and Myron Pritchard for secretary, as its officers. They have been very helpful in supporting the class, as well as the school projects. The Class of '26 is proud to have a good number of members on the basketball, football and track teams, and also to be well represented on the honor roll during the past four years, especially during their Senior year, when they headed the list for each month. Now as they leave the Elgin High School after four years of preparation for the future, it is hoped that as each one follows his path he will look back upon these years and receive an inspiration to attain higher ideals, and then realize their fulfillment.

It was original and held the interest of all who saw it. The large book which represented the HKIaroon" was made up of pages of great im- portance such as the dedication, faculty, music department, athletics, and baby pictures. Certain people who appear on these pages. in the real Xlaroon. posed for this substitute to give the students an idea of how the completed annual will look. lfach section was presented by a member of the stall with a short explanation of the contents and purpose of it. Of course the dedication page was blank with a curtain drawn over it. The purpose of this was to arouse curiosity as to whom it was dedicated, and make everyone more eager to get their Xlaroon. Following the program subscription names were collected. The success of the program was due to the hard work of the committee which was made up of Klaroon Staff and Senior class memliers. Philip Dakin was chairman and responsible for the unique idea of presenting the '4K1aroon". 45 TWO YEAR GRADUATES BERNICE HOGREFE Commercial Course FRANCES AGNES IXXICMAHON Commercial Course LORENE REIDY Commercial Course JUANITA WILKINSON Commercial Course FLORA HELEN AUSTIN Commercial Course HUGO OTTO LOSE Nlanual Training Course LAURA M.

They soon found their way around and entered into the activi- ties of Elgin High. In their Freshman and Sophomore years they had fine look- ing Hoats in the homecoming parades. They also furnished members for the bands which were started that year. They have helped the football teams to all their victories and the basketball team to two state championships. I The ofhcers they chose for their Junior year were: Robert VVagner, presidentg Lorraine Schlager, vice-presidentg Lucile Cotton, secretary. They chose brown and gold for their class colors and were able to have their sweaters before Thanksgiving. They have had many series of sandwich sales which proved very successful. The junior class play was done very well and brought forth talent from the class. ' Here is to a big and successful Senior year. LUCILE COTTON, Secretary 48 ADKINS, R. BOSWORTH, NV. DAVERY, B.

ZZ Sophomores THE CLASS OF ,28 i SETTING-Elgin High School CHARAcTERseThe Class of '28 ACT I TIME'IQ24-1925. The freshies of '24-the class of '28-enter Elgin High School and, after much whispering and commotion, settle down to their studies. They enter willingly, into many school activities and make a good beginning by decorating a large float in the Homecoming parade. . Both boys and girls take their place in sports and show good sportsmanship and give us promise of future stars in all the games. ln a Freshman reading contest the dramatic ability of the contestants is dis- played. Two outstanding members of the cast are Orval Cooper and Royal Fisher, who are representatives of the Freshmen in the Student Council. ACT II TIME-1925-1926. After a refreshing vacation the class of '28 returns to school, but now it has advanced one step up the stairway of learning and is called the Sophomore class. Since the class is older and knows the way of school life, the boys and girls show great progress in their studies and are not so disturbing, although they could be more attentive and not so boisterous. Athletics now claim much attention from the Sophs. The boys go out for many sports and show themselves worthy to be on the teams. The girls also make a name for themselves by winning the interclass volleyball championship. With the aid of Hazel Wicklund and Orval Cooper, representatives of the Sophomore class, the Student Council puts out a handbook, the first of its kind to be issued in Elgin High School. Having succeeded in putting over these first two acts, the cast of the play entitled 'cThe Class of 5223" hopes also to make a success of the two following acts. VVe hope with all our hearts that the class may attain its high goal, graduation from Elgin High School. lN'lARIE COLDEVIN, '28. 52 CD m m C: 2 O E D-I C m 53 6 L5 D A V ACKEMANN, IX. BEIHIRENS, A.

In September these Freshmen welcomed two hundred and fifty-nine more who came to get the knowledge offered by Elgin High, and to help form the Class of 1929. The girls took an active part in all athletics, a subject in which they were greatly interested. The girls had a hard gripping game for the Interclass Basket- ball Tournament which they won. All the boys who had received grade school football training joined the High School teams, but ofcourse they were not heavy enough to play in the big games.

IC, XYILSON WHAT THE COACHES HAVE TO SAY In our interscholastic program, at lilgin High School, football comes the nearest to satisfying the popular idea that is confronting, not only our community, but the country at large, "Athletics for allw. By the constant accumulation and care of equipment, we are able to give at least seventy-live boys training in football throughout both Spring and Fall seasons and the fact, that it is a strenuous outdoor sport, is probably the greatest reason why it has long been the most popular of major sports in not only colleges and universities, but in the high schools of the United States. No doubt the next greatest reason for its unrivaled popularity is the fact, that it is played on a large athletic field, where it is possible for great numbers to witness the contest. The intense interest in the game, the fact, that it is possible for great numbers to play the game and the very keen competition which our well organized confer- ence of long standing affords, makes it necessary to conduct very intensive train- ing with both our major and minor teams in the Spring as well as in the Fall of the year. Realizing that experience makes the player, as many boys as possible, regard- less of age or weight, are urged to take part in the game in the Spring ofthe year. This is especially true with the boys who are just entering High School because it has been our custom to give a boy one year experience, on our minor team or on the major squad before he is placed on the major team. Of course, if a boy is gifted with unusual athletic ability, regardless of size he plays with the majors. Making a survey of the material on our teams in the Fall, during the last few years shows, that the nucleus of both teams is composed of the boys who took part in football during the preceding Spring. This shows' the value derived from their early training and the necessity of having it. Our teams last Fall were very successful, not only in the winning of games, but a fine spirit of cooperation between the team, coaches and the school was shown and the boys were a group that Elgin High School was glad to have re- G 3 present them. The minors lost only a few games while the majors won all but one. Our material for next year, of course, is in the making and although a number of players graduate from the major team, just as large a number, who are young in the game this year, were carried on the squad throughout the season. They should come to the front next season together with some who will move up from the minor squad. The same good Elgin High School spirit, that put winning teams on the field this year, will do the same thing next year. ' M. E. WiII.SON. HEAVYWEIGHT BASKETBALL Elgin High School 1925-1926 Heavyweight Basketball team completed the hardest schedule ever undertaken by the Elgin High School. They played the best teams in Northern Illinois and Chicago. The regular playing schedule con- sisted of fifteen games, seven of which were with Big Seven schools. Elgin was successful in thirteen of the fifteen games. In the Big Seven Conference Elgin tied for first place with five games won and one lost. After the regular playing season Elgin entered the State High School Basket- ball Tournament. They easily won their four district tournament games that were played at Dundee, scoring IOQ points to their opponents, 58 points. ln the Sectional Tournament held at Joliet the iylaroons went to the semi-finals and lost to Joliet by the close score of I5-14. The State Tournament had 640 teams start and Elgin was one of the last sixteen to remain. Considering the loss of Captain Mills, All State Center and Captain, and Andy Solyom, one of the best guards in High School circles, and also Carl Acke- mann, high point man of the conference from last year's lightweight team, at the end of the first semester, the team made a record that any High School would be proud to claim. C. E. ADAMS. TRACK The growth of track athletics has been nothing short of phenomenal. Ten years ago there were only two large meets for high schools in this section of the country. Now, scarcely a week end goes by, but what some high school, college or university stages an interscholastic meet. Even in our own locality the popular- ity of track has increased greatly. A few years ago Elgin had the Kane County and Big Seven Track. hleets to look forward to. This year there were nine meets scheduled and the boys have been looking forward to those meets with interest as it offers them a chance to match their skill and speed against each other. Next year there will be more interest displayed. The fruits of this year's labors will be realized and the name and reputation of Elgin High School will continue to be that of a leader. S. A.

Our next game was with Wvendell Phillips, the team we had defeated 49 to O the year before, This time they gave our boys a real scare, but L'Ga-Ga" repeated his performance of the previous week and Elgin was the victor, 3 to o. The conference season opened with Elgin at East Aurora. lt was a hard game with numerous lost op- portunities on both sides, but Elgin returned victorious, 7 to o. Coach Fletcher's Wildcats from West Aurora were our next opponents. Ability to follow the ball won the game for Elgin, when Captain Tenney picked up a fumble and ran for a touchdown. Rudinger broke his collarbone l"mumN in this game and it proved a serious handicap to the team. A large crowd followed the team to Freeport, in a driving rain. Although outplayed, Freeport won when Bere ran 30 yards for a touchdown. Xfills scored Elgin's points in the first half, but lost many other opportunities to score. Elgin ran wild over DeKalb, 40 to o. Kforley really got started in this game and the rest of the gang played some of the snappiest football seen on the Afaroon field. Elgin defeated its ancient rivals, Rockford, under the Worst conditions a game has ever been played in Elgin. Tom Nforley Wallowed his way through six inches of snow, mud and water for two touchdowns. Our final conference game was with Joliet and we defeated the prison city bunch, 24 to o. Afills and Alorley played the best game of their lives and the score should have been larger. The Alaroons played a post season game against Englewood, runnerup in the Chicago league. Althcugh outplayed in the first half, they came back in the final period with a strong aerial attack and fought to a 7 to 7 tie. 95 af 67 .., ,.

He was an all-round linesman. C A R L K E R B E R Kerher is one of the hardest hitting and tackling backs in the Big Seven conference. HCully's', play was always a feature of the game and he should be a good leader. DOUGLAS MILLS Mills was our quadruple threat man who could run, kick, pass and catch passes to perfection. "Gaga7' was placed on the all-state team by many critics. ANDREVV SOLYONI "Andy" was a handy man to have around for either tackle or end. His size and ability made him an ex- cellent end.

He played consistently throughout the sea- son and was a scrappy linesman. HENRY RUDINGER '4Hank" played regular tackle early in the season and bid fair to become a crack linesrnan. In the Vlest Aurora game he broke his collarbone and was out the rest of the season. RUDINGER AIARTIX FLORA GROMER KIRKPATRICK 69 PHILIP DAKIN 'cPhil", our hefty tackle, played regular after Rudinger was taken out. He distinguished himself in the Freeport game by recovering a fumble on their ten- yard line, which led to Elgin's points. R O Y F L O R A Flora played at both end and backfield positions. He played commendably wherever he was placed and was a valuable asset to the team. HENRY ANDERSON Anderson played a steady, rugged game at guard and was rarely substituted for. He should develop into a great player next year. HERBERT MARTIN lNIartin came from Joliet where he played lightweight football. He won a regular place with the majors and played a steady game at guard. ELMIQR SMITH '4Smitty" our midget coming from the lightweight team, made a regular berth with the heavies and played like a veteran. DON FERRAN Although Ferran was only a Freshman he made good on the heavies and as he has three more years he should prove to be a whiz.

The standard of lightweight football has been pulled up very greatly since Steve started coaching here. The team closed the season with five victories, three defeats and a tie. Captain Vllagner, Lea, Hallet and Kochis were mentioned as all- conference material. The lights, first game was with the Sandwich reserves. The score Was 2 to 2.

The gang Went to Joliet determined to do or die. They did and with Kochis playing a stellar role, defeated the Joliet's lights, I3 to o.

Yve wish him the best of luck in carrying on his career at college. A victory at Rockford The Kiaroons entered the season with a great record from the last two years to uphold. Under Coach Adams tutelage they finished their regular schedule with thirteen victories and two defeats, and later reached the semi-finals in the sectional tournament at Joliet. The team started the season with three regulars from last years state champ aggregation. They were later handicapped when lfills, Solyom, Church, and .Xckemann were lost by the ninth semester ruling. Wvith but two weeks rest and practice from the football season the hlaroons took into camp four of the best teams in Chicago. Austin, Harrison, Crane and Hyde Park were the victims. The squad hit a snag when they journeyed to New Trier and came home .with the short end of a 30-28 store. The gang were decidedly off and New Trier played over their heads to win. The team showed their class in the first conference game by defeating the much routed Joliet quintet 32-13. They next won an easy victory over Wfest Aurora 31-15. Captain Klills, supposedly "ill'7, was the star. The strong Rockford quintet arrived here for the next game, a non-conference tilt. The game was close, but Elgin was never headed and won 28-22. The next game was the one to which the Elgin fans looked forward most-Freeport. Before a howling mob that packed the gym, as it has seldom been packed before, Elgin took one of the most hectic games ever seen on the E. H. S. court. Although the Pretzels led at the third quarter, the boys kept their heads and won by a sensa- tional comeback 22-17. Freeport was later state champ. The next week the ninth semester prospects were given a chance to prove their ability, and did it Very nicely, whipping East Aurora 41-21. The following eve was the last game for the 8th semester men, and they gave their best to help Elgin beat Oak Park 29-16. lt certainly was hard to see Captain Nfills and the boys go. The team next journeyed to DeKalb for a conference game. It was exciting and hard fought, Elgin winning in an over-time game 37-28. The game with VVaukegan was called off on account of the scarlet fever ban. The Kfaroons were seriously handicapped in their practice for the Rockford game by this ban. would have given Elgin a clear title to the conference championship, but it was not forthcoming. Lack of practice told on the Kfaroons and they lost 25-14. In the last game of the regular season, Elgin beat Dundee 28-19. Top Row-COACH ADAMS, GROMER, JXSHMAN, Eooiaisiuzciir, SPURRIER, B.

His eleverness and good shooting eye stamped him as a star. His best Work Was at Joliet Where his stellar playing crossed the admiration of the critics. ANDREW SOLYOH The calibre of Andy's playing was that which is seldom seen in college circles. Although handicapped by a bad knee, his playing could not be equalled anywhere in the state. As soon as the ninth semester closed he entered college and began playing basketball. GEORGE KOCHIS At the end of the regular season, Adams decided he needed another good guard who could work the ball down the floor. He called 4'Koehy', from the ponies to fill this position. George came through and his speed, light guarding and floorwork featured the tournament play. FRANK Kocms HAYWARD BIGGIERS ANDREW SOLYOM GEOIRCSE Kocms 76 THE TOURNAMENTS Elgin entered the District Tournament at Dundee with a new, untried team. Koehis had been taken over from the lightweights and worked into the new com- bination. Elgin met strong opposition in the first game with St. Charles, but won rather handily, 26 to 13. The next night they defeated Harvard, 36 to 23. The subs got a chance in this game. In the serni-finals they met an unexpected obstacle in hIeHenry. The game was in doubt at all times, but the old Elgin fight won, 16 to 14. In the hnals they ran over Crystal Lake, 31 to S, showing greater form than the most optimistic Elgin fan had looked for. Flora, Slayik and Biggers were placed on the all-tournament teams. Elgin went to Joliet, backed by a big Crowd and with hopes of another state championship. They ran rings around the Big Hinckley team, ZQ to 15. and earned a place in the serni-linals. The Klaroons did not show the form of the night be- fore, but Elgin would have undoubtedly beat Joliet if not for a bad break in the last quarter. The score was I5 to 14. Too mueh cannot be said of the work of Captain Slayik and the team. Twp Row-V LNUACH rkrmms, B. SLAVIK, Ec:c3EB1L1:c1l'I', XVAGNER, SCHLAGLR. Ifnrfrmz Roco---liicscsrgias, I"1.okA, CAM.

In the pre-conference games the lights defeated Austin, Harrison, Hyde Park and Crane Tech., but suffered the same humiliation as the majors at New Trier, losing 22-25. In the first conference game they defeated Joliet by the close score of I6-IS. At West Aurora the whole team was given a chance as the score was 22-S. Rockford defeated the ponies hereg although Elgin led most of the way. Score, 26-22. CAP1-Am "Doc" Scumuiizxc The team got revenge on Freeport by defeating them 27-21 in the pony scrap, East Aurora was an easy Victim, the score being 3IeI7. The lights were show- ing some classy basketball. Oak Park was defeated 28-18. The game was better than it sounds. The lightweights journeyed to DeKalb to play the strong Barb ponies in a crucial game. The DeKalb lights proved too strong and won a hard fought game. IQ-I2. The next week the Ponies ran over Dundee by a score of 25-2. A rally in the Rockford game in the last few minutes of play fell short by three points and Elgin was defeated 17-14. In the final game Coach Wilson used a new quintet which easily defeated Dundee, 23-I2. The pony aggregation was a fast, fighting aggregation that were always in the running until the final whistle blew. Kochis and Captain Schlager were later drafted to the tournament squad. There was a majority of underelassmen on the squad which sounds well for lClgin's future teams. N- it Efaf .QLG44 vs Track 5?'....u ,s r 1 f il 1 ri Qi E E. Us 3 fl E , TRACK Because of the fact that the Maroon goes to press before the track season opens it cannot very well report on the success of the team. It seems safe to say, however, that Coach Coutchieis men are on their way to a third consecutive conference championship. The Elgin track teams in the last few years have made the best records in Northern Illinois scholastic meets, which is something we should be proud of. The one peculiar thing about track is that although a major sport, it is very poorly supported. To students who have watched track meets, no football or basketball game is more exciting than seeing the events of a Big Seven meet. The fact of the matter is that the meets are rather slow and lack the competitive spirit of the other major sports. A great step forward has been School Athletic Association in providing for state track The plan to be followed is Very similar to that of the basketball meets. There will be sectional tournaments in the various sections and the winners will compete at Urbana for the state title. If Elgin places high in the Big Seven meet they can be expected to take the sectional at Aurora. Led by Captain Perkins the Maroons have reliable point getters in Jones, Weideman, Swan, Pfister, Spurrier, and Kelley. There are quite a few underclassmen out this year, and if they stay out, Elgin should have some great teams in the next few years.

OFFICERS HELEN PALM ELEANOR LEA TIELEN VVING Vzre'-Prffidfvzl Prefidfnt Sfrrfiary BASEBALL Our Great American game, baseball, is as much played and as well liked by the girls of Elgin High School as it is anywhere by any group in the Union. Not many years ago, baseball, as played by girls, was laughable. Today, however, girls can 'pTtch Efixgjnock Hhomersw, or bunt as well as any member of the sterner sex. - This fact can be accounted for in a number of Ways. For one thing, girls today are given more opportunity to display their athletic prowess. Their instructors are more efficient, and this fact alone has stimulated and encouraged the girls to such an extent that much progress has been made in all athletics for girls. lXfTore- over, the modern girl is not the type to be frightened at seeing a ball whizzing toward her. She is stronger in mind, in body, and consequently, her nerves are more steady. CAPTAINS BETTY CUTTER .... . Senior BARBARA LASHER . junior RUTH SCHNEFF . Sophomore FRANCES BEVERLY . Freshman CAPTAIN BALL Sixty-two girls participated in the color tournamentheld to determine the champion Captainball team. It developed that the team ably led by lona Fraut- nicht was the laurel-winner. Captainball is a fast-moving, breath-taking game that requires rapid thought, true basket aim, and a tense, alert brain. It develops the muscles in the shoulder, back, arms, and legs. The game is preparatory for basketball, and is not regarded as a major sport. The captains of the other three teams were Vivian Kinsley, Elizabeth Miller, and Helen, Phillips. sz I VOLLEYBALL Volleyball, the game for any and every girl, had a good number of recruits this year. Seventy-eight girls played in enough games to earn letters for the sport. The popularity of this lirst sport of the season can be explained by the fact that no one girl is burdened by an over-abundance of individual activity or re- sponsibility. The game requires and develops team-work and alacrity of response. ln the inter-class championship tourney it was the team-work and alertness of the Sophomore team that gave it the victory.

Such a happy combination was effected, and after several interruptions by Hour epidemics" the month of hlarch saw regular rehearsals in full swing. Feeling that such a production was worthy of two good-sized audiences, we engaged the new Xlasonic Auditorium for the evenings of April Sth and oth. The play is a delightful combination of romance and nonsense in plot, with charming dances and effective singing. Hearing the famous lylendelssohn Wedding lylarch in its original setting was a delight to all, and the fact that the music had been made the subject for memory tests in the grades, made it the more enjoyed by the youngsters. The more serious characters in the play were presented with much real thought and emotion, showing careful training and wise casting. The nonsense of the rude mechanics in rehearsing their Htragical comedyi' afforded merry relief, as well as the grotesqueness of the elves and fairies. The Elgin High School Players find that they made a popular and worthy choice as their first presentation, and the music department adds another laurel to its many years' successes. The by-products of such a production are many, the development of responsi- bility and the enlarging of the personality of each participant often carries over for years to come. We trust this first attempt of the Flgin High School Players will rate high with all succeeding productions, and be a happy memory for all who saw it, or took part in it. SS .i ',..... 1"i,,.,.i.

The "stunt nightw in which every student is given an opportunity to perform, afforded the highest degree of entertainment in every act. The event is sponsored by the Klirror Board. for the benefit of the school paper, the Xlirror. All the proceeds are turned over to this fund. While few stunts were turned in for the program those that were given brought -much favor- able comment from the large audience. The entertainment was a success. both financially and as to the way in which it was given. The acts this year were very largely made up of combinations of music and comedy. Take-offs on several well known stories also were very numerous on the program. MR, C. llll was a very clever little act. with plenty of comedy afforded by the noisy parrot. The story was based on Robinson Crusoels adventures. The Home lticonomics Club was represented on the program by HA Culinary Band" which was given by twenty girls who are members of the club. 'fThe Shooting of Dan Xlcffireww was a pantomime presentation of the famous poem. Plenty of entertainment and fun was derived from this. The experiences ofa modern home-seeking male were well portrayed in a comic fashion in the stunt entitled f'W'anted'fA Wifew. This 21Ct also was carried out in pantomime. "l3luebeard's lfighth TYife'7 was another comedy presented in a fine manner. by a lively cast. "The Orphans of the Storml' was a clever little take-off on the picture of the same name. The act even included the singing of the famous "Rueben, Rueben, live been thinking", by a horse. Rhyme and Rhythm found its way into the evening's entertainment when "Thompson's Court Room Scenew was given. This stunt was most original. and met with the hearty approval of the audience. 'fhlutt and leffl' presenting a pair of comedians. drew much laughter from the audience with their snappy jokes. MThe Three Navigatorsn was another stunt which combined the musical with the comedy, with a little dancing thrown in for good measure. 'fRomeo Romes Alongll made a big hit with the audience in a few minutes of humorous dialogue, and comedy. This was put on by two girls. Tumbling, comedy, and music all found their way into the act called 'fDope and Dopeyw which was presented by two young gents. Another before the curtain act employing humorous dialogue was that of "The Fraternity Barge" Radio transmitting and cartooning proved to be the feature of the program because of its novelty. This was presented in the mystic act called the "Sapolio Brothersw. The High School Orchestra furnished music in between the acts of the per- formance, under the direction of Kliss Stocking.

THE DEBATING TEAM lnterest and enthusiasm in debating was started last year by the formation of a debating club. This year a varsity team was chosen from any who wished to try out for it. Of these, eight were decided upon by Mr. Utzinger and bliss Barker, six of whom made up the regular affirmative and negative teams. These teams were composed of entirely new material, as only one member had ever debated before. The question for debate throughout the season was: Resolved: That Congress should have the power by a two-thirds vote to pass legislature declared uncon- stitutional by the Supreme Court, The schedule included dual debates with Rockford on Xlarch 18, DeKalb on llarch 25, and Klarengo at a later date. The varsity team for this year was: .4ji7'77Zdfii"K Negaiiw KLXRGARET GOBLE HELEN Klchlauox PIIILIP DAMN GERfXI,D HELMAN l'lDA BACII ALMORE TEscnE HARTER KIRKPAXTRICK EI.I,PIN SHEVV 91 THE PUBLIC SPEAKING DEPARTMENT This is a course that is steadily increasing in necessity and value. As time has progressed so has speech. At present it is necessary for a Worker among the populace to know how to speak and what to say. Thus the high school graduate ought to be prepared to talk, as Well as write, his Way through life. The one year Public Speaking Course has been and is open to Juniors and Seniors. Each semester shows more students taking advantage of the chance to better their delivery and speech. This past year has been very successful in this department. A greater interest and desire for the course has been aroused and more students are taking this study than in previous years. Bashful, shy, stuttering students are transformed into public speakers of ease and conversational delivery. Out of the classes come debaters of fiery talents, speakers who have given clever an- nouncements, and readers of exceptional quality. It teaches one to c'Stand upl Speak up! and Shut upi", with the purpose of educat- ing students to speak before an audience in an intelligent and natural manner, Perhaps the greatest fun and interest is in the debates. Formal debates are held, in the classes, on subjects of interest and value to the school. Proposed projects are discussed pro and con. Thus this is not only a course in debate but a broadening experience for a Well balanced student. As the interest and classes increase, the student body will profit by producing students of better speech and the goal of Public Speak- ing will soon be reached. 92 Society SCHOOL DANCES The school dances this year were given under the supervision of the Student council. They were held on the last Friday of every month and Were proven to be very successful by the large attendance. A large dance was given the Wiednesday before Christmas, which was the special event of this kind of the year. Sitlws orchestra furnished very good music, and candy canes, balloons, and various other favors were enjoyed. A prize Waltz had been planned by the Student Council. After many exhibitions and much deliberation, hiiss Janet Dykes and hir. Lloyd Watson were chosen as the best waltzers in li. H. S. The Student Council came to the conclusion that more enjoyable dances could be given if a small admittance fee would be paid. We gave this a try and now, at the end of the year. we all agree that this plan was a huge success, and our un- animous vote is "more dancesv. 94 FOOTBALL HE" MEN'S BANQUET The domestic science classes under the direction of Miss Roe, gave their annual "E" Men's banquet in the library of E. H. S. As usual, it was a big success with the boys, and they reported a wonderful time and a wonderful dinner. Coaches Adams, Wilson and Coutchie gave very interesting talks, and other speakers of the evening were: lXfIr. Goble, Mr. Fairchild, Earl Britton, Dr. James Tobin, Captain-elect Kerber, and Ex-captain Tenney. . This occasion was chosen for the election of the heavyweight football captain, and Carl Kerber was elected to lead the boys through 1926. The menu consisted of the following: Fruit Cocktail and Wafers Rolled,Swiss Steak hflashed Potatoes and Gravy Celery Olives Pickles Florida Salad Apple Pie ala mode Hot Rolls Coffee BAND CONCERT lt is a flne thing for a high school to be able to boast of a band, and we are extremely fortunate in being able to boast of two very fine ones. Our bands are well organized and well directed. Nliss Stocking, the director of the girls' band, has been an enthusiastic and hard working leader, and Mr. Laska has ably directed the boys' band. Last year a band concert was presented and the returns were large and the work was given much praise. The same plan was used this year and the band profited greatly by the concert. The program given was varied, and well presented, and everyone who attended the concert praised it highly. G. A. C. BANQUET, livery mother's and daughterls party has always proved to be a big success when sponsored by the G. A. C. and everyone demanded another. This time it turned out in the form of a banquet, and it certainly was a fine one. ljleanor Lea was a very able toastmistress, and speeches were given by captains of the various teams. A very interesting program for the evening was arranged, and included vocal selections by lVliss Boettcher, violin selections by Nliss lVlarjorie Ballard, and stunts by a group of girls. This occasion was chosen for the presentation ofa hammered silver pin to hliss Jessie Vaughn, who submitted the best yell to the G. A. C. A very enjoyable menu was served and the mothers, and daughters had an equally good time. MENU Roast Beef lXIashed Potatoes and Gravy G. A. C.

The juniors were giving their annual prom to the Seniors. The gym was transformed into a bower of pastel bows and streamers and the young people danced merrily to the music of the Black Hawk orchestra of Aurora. The happy party ended with a grand march led by Hayward Biggers, the junior class president. Our program for the week was completely filled, and the next thing we knew, the Seniors were entertaining the juniors and the faculty. Beljearfs orchestra furnished the music and many special numbers were enjoyed. The Seniors realized that this was the last time they would entertain at the Elgin High School but were happy in the thought that this last affair was a huge success. All forgot their sorrows over leaving school, their dignity and many other things which Seniors possess, and never a merrier group descended upon Oak Ridge. The day was pleasantly occupied with games, canoeing and swimming, not to mention the gorgeous picnic supper which was quickly disposed of by the dignified Seniors. Class day at last. Very near the end. This was the last time the Seniors would entertain the students from the auditorium platform. A delightful pro- gram was given. The will and prophecy were enjoyed immensely and everyone thought that if all class days were like this, they wouldn't mind so much, even if they were leaving Elgin High. Of course they couldnlt know how the Seniors felt. Reverend Zeigler was chosen to give the Baccalaureate sermon. He delivered a fine address and the Seniors were given a start in life. VVe all know there never could have been another sermon like this. Graduation. The goal toward which we have all been working, always hope- ful, always expectantly. Professor Kieknofer was the speaker of the evening. His speech was impressive and fine and was followed by the presentation of diplomas and the honor students. The class song was lovely and as the Seniors sang their hearts were filled with sad and beautiful thoughts of E. H. S. They marched out to the last strains and they were no longer Seniors but Alumni. The Alumni reception was the last event. The music was provided by the Frivolity Five and this was the end of all the good times which had been enjoyed by the Seniors. SENIOR BREAKFAST Suggestions were offered in class meeting to have either a class picnic or a breakfast, during graduation week. Everyone desired something different, so the students voted on the breakfast, and a committee was appointed. Helen Burton is chairman of this committee, and she reported on the progress of her committee at the last class meeting. The breakfast will be given at the Methodist church. lwenus are being pre- pared and the committee will choose the most desirable one. A program will be arranged and our class president, Lloyd Vonckx, will act as toastmaster. 96 Urganizations THE STUDENT FOUNFII, Three years ago the Student Council was organized in lflgin High School and it has done admirable work.

B Besides these programs there have been the music contests to work for. The singing parts in the HhIid-Summer Night's Dream", were taken entirely by members of the club. hIiss Stocking has developed a splendid group of singers in her Glee Club, hav- ing hardly any experienced people with which to begin the year.

Kluch of the progress made by the orchestra within the last few years is due to so many of its members having been with the organization for several years, so that they have learned the orchestra routine and become acquainted with orchestra literature from the simplest marches to such music as that written by Mendelssohn for "A Midsummer Xight's Dream". While this music took many weeks of patient practice, yet the final performances certainly were highly ap- preciated by all who heard this delightful fairy music. Other performances of the year included the between act music for the Class Plays, a series of three appreciation concerts for the grade school children, and no doubt the orchestra will continue the custom begun last year of playing the processional, graduation march, and recessional for the commencement exercises. There were also many performances of the entire orchestra or of groups of its members at various other school and community functions such as Parent-Teacher Association programs, and civic club banquets and entertainments. Often times these organizations made donations to the Klusic Department treasury, all of which were much appreciated and welcomed as a source of revenue by which music and other expenses of the department might be taken care of. The orchestra is indebted very greatly to Xliss Stocking. its leader, whose work with indiyiduals and small groups manifested itself in the accomplishments of the orchestra as a whole. The officers for the year 1925-26 are as follows: lXTARjoR1E BALLARD . . . Preridmt JOSEPHTNE GrXI,I,OXN'.XH' . l,iL'f-P7KJ1.dE7Zf ALICE STAFFORD . Secretary-Trnuzzrfr BETTY MCNERNEY . .

Girls' Band under the direction of hffiss Nfarguerite Stocking. Together with the Boys' Band they opened the football season, but at the same time preparations were being made for a program of concert numbers for the Parent-Teacher's Association Convention which came in the early fall. Then came the basketball season and the Annual Band Concert. This spring brought numerous other performances including concerts at the State Hospital, and Janesville, Wisconsin, at the invitation of the Girls' Band of that city, and its director, lVfr. Jacks. An exchange concert was arranged for by our lilgin Girls' Band, so that the band members, as Well as the townspeople had the privilege of hearing the two Girls' Bands perform. This season saw the inauguration of the plan of inspection of uniforms under the able supervision of Mrs. Florence Fletcher. Though this has been the first year of its trial, the improvement in the appearance of the uniforms has been greatly noticed and the plan was considered such a good one that it Will be con- tinued With our Girls' Band, and is being considered for adoption by the Janes'- ville Girls' Band. .

The concert was the biggest job on the hands of lN'lr. Liska, and his thirty musicians, and they presented a fine group on the program. Together with the Girl,s Band, the fellows appeared at many of the football games to put the spirit of old Elgin High in the players, and also the crowd, that only a band can do. The band also made its appearance alternately with the Girlis Band at the basketball games. Wiith the number of veterans back for next year, the band is sure to have a more successful season than this year. 117 THE SECOND HIGH SCHOOL ORCHESTRA The second semester of last year a uSecond High School Orchestral, was or- ganized for the purpose of giving training in ensemble playing to those who were not quite ready to undertake the dihicult music played by the first orchestra. There are practically no public performances of this group, the entire time being spent in learning to follow the conductor's beat and play simple and medium grade orchestra music in time and at a reasonable tempo. The second orchestra meets twice weekly under the direction of Kliss Stocking. Usually after a year of this work the student is ready to enter the regular High School Orchestra.

The two vice-presidents are seniors elected by the senior class, while the secretary and treasurer are members of the faculty chosen to rep- resent that group. hlr. Goble, the principal of the high school, is the president ex-officio. The chief duty of this board is that of attending to the business connected with the publication of the lylirror. They also appoint, from the class in journalistic writing, a staff who edit the paper. As a means of raising money to help pay for the publication of the Mirror a Comedy Concert is sponsored each year by the Mirror Board. Some years it is possible to give a part of the proceeds of this concert to a scholarship loan fund, which was established by this board to aid students who may need a little assist- ance in getting through college. These funds are in charge of a committee con- sisting of the Principal of the High School, the Superintendent of Schools, and the President of the Board of Education who appoint a treasurer, who makes loans from the fund as directed by the committee. . 120 Top RfJQ'7S'I'I'QI'1N.

Each new staff endeavors to put out a better annual than the ones preceding, but while we do not claim to have done so, we have tried to do our best, more than that no one can do. In planning the book it was most 'necessary to consider our budget, which from force of circumstanceswas lower than had been anticipated. During the year, epidemics made it impossible to carry through money-making projects planned by the Senior Class. J However, We feel we have overcome this handicap to the best of our ability, and in presenting this book to its subscribers, hope they will be pleased with our efforts. The Whole staff has Worked diligently on every department and Well deserve praise for their results. Every member has cooperated with me and cooperation is a vital factor in editing a book. , Besides the staff and those mentioned in "Appreciation", I Wish to thank Lucile Cotton, Marie Coldevin, and Gertrude Munch. BETTY CUTTER, Editor-in-Chief. The type of annual edited depends greatly upon the money alloted. The staff of ,26 has been quite fortunate in this matter due to the undivided efforts of the Finance Committee, and they have my sincere appreciation. Due to their work We have been able to add special features, such as the Scenic Section and the two color plates. I am also very appreciative of the Work of Mr. Larsen. His efforts as advisor have been very helpful indeed. In the past year the staff has made every effort to build a successful, and at- tractive "Maroon". They have Worked together harmoniously and efficiently, and are justly proud of their Work.
