The Maroon Staff, in behalf
of the Senior Class, presents,
in this, the sixteenth volume
of the HAI.-KROONH.
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

HELEN LOUISE ROMEIS
Died January seventeenth, nineteen
hundred and twenty-three.
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-
In Order to show our gratitude for
their helpful suggestions, actions, and
friendships shown during our high school
careers, We the Xlaroon Staff of IQ26,
devote this page as an appreciation to

THE HISTORY OF THE CLASS
O F 1 9 2 6
The career of the Class of '26 in the Elgin High School has come to a close
after four years which were successful in the various phases of high school life.
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
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. ISLIZABETH M. SORN, '26,

THIC MAROOX STAFF PROGRAM
The Xlaroon Staff program was one ofthe most successful put on by the students
during the past year. 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
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".

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
In the year of IQ23 a very fine and enthusiastic looking group
of boys and girls entered Elgin Highg they were called Freshmen.
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
The junior class play was done very well and brought forth
talent from the class. '
Here is to a big and successful Senior year.

THE CLASS OF ,28 i
SETTING-Elgin High School
CHARAcTERseThe Class of '28
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-
Two outstanding members of the cast are Orval Cooper and Royal Fisher,
who are representatives of the Freshmen in the Student Council.
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.

In January, 1925, the Elgin High School received one hundred and forty-two
incoming Freshmen. 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.
The class elected Richard Dalbey and Robert Lowrie to represent them on
the Student Council.
All clubs gave the Freshmen a hearty welcome, which made them feel at
home and very happy in their new surroundings.
Hail to Class of 729, Freshies ,25.
htlay success always be their aim.
hlay success crown their future.

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
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-
present them. The minors lost only a few games while the majors won all but
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.
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.
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. COUTCHIE.

Worked off some old grudges against Rockford and the Auroras. They scored IO7
points to their opponents 19, which shows the defensive strength the squad had.
Their offensive operations were hampered by the bad weather that prevailed
during the games especially those against Freeport and Rockford. Elgin had a
strong, well-balanced team, and Captain Tenney, Klills, Gromer, and Klorley
were mentioned for all conference honors.

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

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.

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.

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.

crucial game. The DeKalb lights proved too strong and won a hard fought game.
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.

The pony aggregation was a fast, fighting aggregation that were always in

the squad which sounds well for lClgin's future teams.

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.

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

Captainball is a fast-moving, breath-taking game that requires rapid thought,

The game is preparatory for basketball, and is not regarded as a major sport.

Volleyball, the game for any and every girl, had a good number of recruits

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-

of the Sophomore team that gave it the victory.

'KA MID-SUMMER NIGHT'S DREAMH
For some time there has been a wish on the part of a few in our high school to
present Shalcespeare's HA lylid-Summer Nightls Dreamw, but the character parts
were a bit too difficult for the music department alone, and the music was cer-
tainly beyond the powers of the English department, So it happened that early
in the fall of 1925, the proposition of joining forces on such a presentation came
about. lt was brought before the two departments, and the Elgin High School
Players voted to be responsible for the speaking parts and the staging, while the
Xlusic department should have charge of the rest.
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
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.

THE COMEDY CONCERT
The annual Comedy Concert was given this year on the afternoon and evening
of April 16. 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
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

'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
"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

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

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,

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

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.
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
Apple Pie ala mode Hot Rolls
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.

The merriment of graduation week was at its height. 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
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
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.
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.

THE HIGH SCHOOL ORCHESTRA
The lflgin High School Orchestra has just experienced the most successful
year since its organization, having grown both in size and instrumentation.
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:

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'-

a fitting close when they appeared on Friday evening, March 26,
in the annual band concert. 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
Wiith the number of veterans back for next year, the band is
sure to have a more successful season than this year.

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 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. .

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.
