In it we have tried to make a complete history of the school year, and though it is not perfect, we have done our best. Some things must necessarily be on the same order as in other years, but where it was possible We have been original. Our main thought was to put out a book worthy of the appreciation of all, and which in later years will prove a source of many happy memories of school days.

Class Flower: Rose With a final hauling up of rope and ladder, the Pirate crew of '27 set sail upon a four year voyage into the lakes of Study and the realms of Knowledge. Immediately the new mates chose 25 representatives of this group to join "Ye council of Pirates." Mates Robert Wagner and Celia McGill. At the time of the reunion and homecoming of Pirates, the group of Freshmen ffor such was their beginning titleJ more than outdid itself in the decoration of their skiff fautomobilej. In the second year when the port of geometry was reached, Robert Wagner and Vernon Kretschmer were representatives of this group. Many Sophomores fthe sec- ond titlej took part in Athletics. Then, out of the troubles and horror of two long years of work and hardships, Captain Hook, alias Goble, bestowed upon this most worthy group the title of "Jun- iors." Robert Wagner, who had shown great ability and prowess in former days of deck-scrubbing, was given the honor of becoming head pirate and was called "Captain Bob" of the most noble crew of dastardly pirates. Assistant Captainship was given to "Doc" Schlager, and upon Lucille Cotton was bestowed the honor of becoming most worthy scribe. With such a beginning and such success in the past, and especially in the Junior or third step in the voyage, how could the last and most important step be anything but a success? When the time arrived for a new choice of leaders, there was but one pirate ter- rible enough, villainous enough, to take this role. Even tho' minus the customary hook hand, this pirate could pound a gavel harder than anyone else and so was chosen to rule with an iron hand. Captain Spurrier was enough to strike fear into the bravest of hearts and added to the hoard of jewels and silver more than any other, for he knew the way and the how of all money-making schemes. Willard Turner was chosen as assistant to calm the "too anxious" Captain. The title of Hmost worthy scribe" was bestowed upon Margaret Martin and the voyage ended in the good ship "Elgin High," the mates walked solemnly down the gangplank loaded with bags of experience and knowledge to take their places again in the world of busy people. 18 lg-4 JC'i Qc-gnfiwlfigrikc-34 was 5 FREDERICK L.

The officers elected were: Royal Fischer, presidentg Harold Flora, vice-presidentg and Dorothy Glenne Beverly, secretary. The class soon showed its individuality by choosing grey sweaters trimmed in black and red. They are proud of the fact that the captains of both the heavy- weight football and basketball teams were Juniors, and that there were also several other fine athletes from the class. The girls were very active in intramural sports. The two representatives of the class on the Student Council were Charles Landwere and Wendell Muntz. The annual Junior Class play, "Captain Applejackn, was very well done, showing much talent in the class. Every member of the class is anxious to make his senior year the biggest and best ever.

Electing Lois Arnold and Robert Dwyer as members of the Student Council, we showed our ability in choosing leaders. The class is well represented in all activities. Don Ferron, Arthur Behrens, Steve Scheele, Clarence Oldham, and Fred Blanck, earned positions on the heavyweight football team. Sherman Haligas, Carver Leach, and Richard Cahill received letters on the lightweight team. In basketball Leach and Mansfield made E's in the lightweight group. Leach, Salisbury, Krunnfusz, Danford, and Blanck represented the class by coming out for track. A The Commercial Club staged a play during the first semester, Dorothy Karge and Gerald Biggers of the Sophomore class acting leading parts. Such material will make better class plays in the junior and senior years of school. It has always ranked with the upper classes in scholastic achievements. Let us hope that '29 will leave names on the school hall of fame. -Richard Dalbey '29. Q P-4. 52 I L? LlTjQ '3C.2TLz'!7JL?5k.l73C-?3Ll'5 I ,. ,.. , . . If-f'?1 4' Wm' klf1AT2q? I . Hi .

The student body of good old E. H. S. raced for their lockers, particularly the freshmen. The freshmen always race for their lockers. The reason still remains a mystery. On the way home a senior, overtaking a freshman remarked, "You freshmen go down the halls as if you were of just as much importance as the seniors. In my opinion these freshmen are just about useless as far as school activities are concerned. They don't seem to do anything in athletics or clubs." "Maybe you don't hear about them. The freshmen aren't in the habit of crow- ing over their accomplishments." "Is that because they haven't anything to crow about? Think of it! All those Q freshies-how many are there, anyhow?" J "Three hundred and fifteen came in in September, 1926, and 119 in the Jan- uary previous to thatg 435 in all entered as the class of 1930." "Are there really that many? And they haven't done a thing worth mentioning, have they?" "Oh! they haven't, haven't they? From what class did three -of about the best men on the basketball team come? The FRESHMEN class, of course. Who won the girls' volleyball tournament this fall? The FRESHMEN girls, certainly. What class led in the number of pupils on the Honor Roll one month last semester? The FRESH- MEN, most assuredly. What class put on a good program in auditorium not long ago? A FRESHMEN English class, of course. What classlf' V "Enough! Enough! I give in! You have proved your point." "Ah, I thought you'd agree with me." "Hail to the Freshmen of nineteen-thirty! What of the Freshmen of nineteen-thirty? They'll DO! Theylll DO!!

Previously it has not been receiving the recognition in the annual it deservesg this we hope to have eliminated. The importance of high scholastic standing and the hard work necessary for it are being recognized more and more. In Elgin High we have an honor roll, and the list of those on it is published each - month of the school year. To obtain a place on this list a pupil must have an average grade of ninety or above in four subjects for the month. At the end of the semester Q those who have received a final grade of ninety or above in four subjects are placed J on the semester honor roll. ' Within the last three years a new scholastic award has been presented. This is the Rotary Club Honor Medal, presented each year by them. Those pupils who have been on the monthly honor roll for the year are awarded these medals at an auditorium program arranged especially for this. At first the list was small, but it is increasing amazingly fast. The list given on the next page gives the names of those who received the award this year. 1 'fr Y WYE ' Q1-:iii l 'Ja S. , T ia J i - F .-PA, R 1922 HONOR MEDALS Each year at graduation time two seniors, one boy and one girl, receive quite a signal honor, the 1922 Honor Medal.

WILSON Mr. Wilson has for four years been director of athletics at Elgin High School and has coached the heavyweight football and lightweight basketball teams. During this time his football teams have won twenty-seven and tied three of thirty-seven games played. Few schools can boast of such a record over the same period of years. This year he produced a team, from practically "green" material, that tied for a conference championship. Mr. Wilson recognizes scholastic work as primarily import- ant and above all stands for clean athletics. He must be complimented for his in- Huence on school sportsmanship. C. E. ADAMS Coach Adams has proven his ability as a basketball coach many times since he came here. The record of the teams he has coached shows it better perhaps than any other thing. In the season just closed, he had very little experienced material to work with. Most of the boys were "green," but he instilled into them a fighting spirit that never faltered, despite the numerous defeats they suffered. Most of the games were close, and the boys fought until the last whistle had blown. What more can you expect a coach to do? Adams has developed a team this year of which many memlbers will return for one or more seasons. The prospects for next season are brig t. S. A. Courcnrr. Mr. Coutchie has finished his third year as coach of lightweight football and track. He has always been-very popular among the boys and well liked by them. Because of his desire to have athletics for all, we are largely responsible to him for our pres- ent intra-mural system. His track teams have ranked among the best in Northern Illinois, having won the Big Seven meet two years ago and taken third place last year. "Coutch" has created a great deal of interest in track, and he has so enlarged the track schedule that it is now as extensive as that of other major sports. 67 I Ll ala gf -acffpglbgfmgfmgzfwxfw I ., 13. px gig g 71' I1 wg ,, 7, , ,H , .

A but one game and tieing for first honors in the Big Seven. This is a record of no little significance considering the keen competition and quality of the teams found in the 'I Conference. Z' CAPT. KERBER E. H. S. claimed the best defensive team in the conference. Their 'fi Cl goal was crossed but once, and only seven points were scored by their opponents to their own total of thirty-four. The line was one of th f """S"" , strongest in recent years, and the fact that two of the backiield 7 players made All-Conference teams gives ample proof of equal abil- Old Anchor- Z ity there. ' Previous to the season, sport critics viewed possibilities of our 1926 ' ' grid season with doubt, as there were on the squad only three former ,IN letter men. However, the call for spring practice aroused more than ' the usual number, and workouts were then begun. No pre-season summer training camp could be had because of a conference ruling, and efforts were again resumed with the opening of school. In spite of the lack of summer training, September 25 found Captain Kerber and his ten selected warriors ready for their one pre-conferenc game. CAPTAIN CARL KERBER "Gully" has proved one of the smartest captains old N E. H. S. has ever seen. His qualities as a driving back it ' and hard tackler won him a , position on almost every all- ' conference team, besides men- I tion on the all-state honor- 'Bei V' " ary eleven. He has earned three heavyweight letters,and 4 Gwivel Gun his position at half-back will be one difficult to replace. DONALD FERVRAN Ferran, half-back and captain-elect, was one of the best ground gainers and all-around men in the confer- ence this year. His dependable toe and brilliant runs saved Elgin time and again during the season. Don re- ceived all-conference mention, and under his leadership the team next year should have a very successful season.

It resulted in a scoreless tie. The first barrier in the way to the "Big Seven" championship was Joliet. The Elgin boys showed a remarkable improvement over the previous week by outclassing the "Prison City" eleven, 10-0. Elgin again took the role of victor by trimming Freeport, 3-0. Although several times within scoring distance, the Maroons were forced to rely on Ferran's toe for the winning points. The following Saturday Freeport's gridmen were conquered on their own field, in a non-conference game by the same score of 3-0. Kerber was injured. West Aurora's "Wildcats" proved a strong foe and were barely defeated by a touchdown scored by Ferran late in the game. Captain Kerber was unable to play, and his absence was a serious handicap to his teammates. Score 6-0. The E. H. S. eleven played the crucial game of the season by winning from 'their traditional foe, Rockford, who had previously been undefeated, by a 6-0 score. The "Rabs" were unquestionably outfought and outplayed in every aspect. Ashman was injured., East Aurora met defeat at the hands of the Maroons by the same score of 6-0. Although Elgin's points were made in the first few minutes of play, the contest was a battle throughout. The small margin by which Elgin had been winning her games was not sufficient to assure victory when the odds were decidedly against her. At DeKalb the Maroons encountered a muddy field and eleven determined "Barbs", who, by playing far above themselves and by their unusual success at long passes and many trick plays, were able to defeat the "champs", 7-0. The tragedy of DeKalb was the final encounter of the Maroons' successful 1926 season, no post-conference games being played. At the annual "E" mens' banquet fourteen of the fellows, as a reward for their well deserved efforts, were given letters. Seven of these, four of Whom have already been all-conference choice, will be back again next year. Under the capable leadership of captain-elect Don Ferran the outlook for the '27 football program should be anything but gloomy. 71 C.?1L.2'-D il-H l A wi' E--JS?

As a place-kicker he was rarely to be equaled. Although it was his first year, he played his position faultlessly. He is lost by graduation. HENRY BRANDES "Hank" was one of the most reliable and best fighters on the squad. He worked hard all season for a halfback position and proved his capabilities as a ball carrier at Freeport. following Kerber's injury. Unfortunately, "Hank" will not be back again next year. GEORGE KOCHIS Kochis played quarter-back this year, and his timely headwork pulled the team out of some bad holes. He was Elgin's only triple-threat man and performed equally well in all three departments. George made the all-conference team this year. His graduating will leave a big hole in the backfield. GEORGE ASHMAN George played .center and excelled at offense. He was selected on some all-conference teams. As this is Georges last year, a big hole will have to be filled at center posi- tion next year. ROBERT WAGNER Bob played center and end, and played a creditable game at both positions. He developed into a very good defensive center. This is Bob's last year, and he will certainly be missed. FREDERICK EGGEBRECHT "Fritz" played tackle alternately with Blanck and knew how to play his position well. He played a steady game, and his side of the line was always reliable at opening holes for his team mates. We are sorry to say he will not return next year. 72 1.

He played con- sistantly, and we may expect great things from him in the two years he has yet to wear the Maroon and Cream. R E X R E A Rex was fullback this year, and although he seldom carried the ball, he led the interference, showing up well at this position as he seldom failed to get his man . He also played a good defensive game coming into almost every play. Rex will be back next year, and big things are expected from him. FREDERICK BLANCK Blanck played at right tackle and filled all the re- quirements of that position very satisfactorily. He was one of the largest linemen in the Big Seven, and, though it was his first year, he was made an all-conference man. "Fritz" has two more years before ineligibility. STEVEN SCHEELE "Steve" was another of those boys playing his first year with two more to go. Nevertheless, he was one of the big factors in the team's success, and received all- conference mention several times. He was posted at left end, and his ability to receive passes accounted for the score on Rockford. HENRY ANDERSON "Hank was one of the few veterans back from last year. He developed into a good interferer and played a creditable game on defense. Hank made all-conference guard this year and should make a wonderful lineman next year. ARTHUR BEHRENS "Artie" played a steady consistent game all season at the other guard position. He played a good defensive game and ran interference with Anderson. With another year, Artie should develop into a lineman of no mean ability. 73 5 . ggi Liu Q-fix gfffugffi L.1f1g,zacZf.ik,Zf1, -7 L':.iLbJf'f7CfLf-bc.1'U 'll asv? ' .

' LIGHTWEIGHT FOOTBALL I Again this year, his third year at Elgin, Steve f Coutchie developed a lightweight team of ability, ad- Q mirable spirit, and determination. However, the play J seemed to lack the final punch to win consistently. The 7 - season closed with three victories, five defeats, an-l one V tie. L The season opened successfully with the ponies hold- 7 ' ing the heavier McHenry eleven to a scoreless tie. Fum- bles featured the contest, and Elgin's failure to score . can practically be traced to fumbles at critical periods. In the next game the lights tri.mmed Carl Schurz heavyweight seconds by a score of 20-0, showing a marked improvement over the previous Saturday's game. The lights bowed to Joliet on the next Saturday, 7-0, in la cgotolfli game.h 'lghe team slgxofwed plhenty of scrzgp, but ac e e unc o score. . er e ame " onn " CAPT' MUNTZ Muntz, full-Iback, was elected captain of the team. y Freeport was then put out of the way by a score of 6-0, our team showing an improved defense and faster offense. Cooper and Cahill carried the ball for con- sistent gains, while the passing attack worked very successfully. The following Saturday, however, playing Freeport again at Freeport in a non- conference game, the lights were defeated, 16-0. The very first play Freeport used, an old fashioned sleeper pass, so demoralizd the team as to be almost directly responsi- j ble for the defeat. Elgin's own passing attack was also very successful, seven out of , sixteen passes being completed. ii Elgin went down to defeat at W. Aurora's field. Elgin had the superior passing Q and end-running attack, while W. Aurora excelled in the plunging game. W. Aurora's greater weight and experience decided the game in their favor. Score, 6-0. At Rockford the lights lost a hard game by one touchdown. The ponies showed lots of fight, but the breaks went against them, and they lost, 6-0. Cahill and Leach were outstanding players in this contest. In the next game Elgin whipped the E. Aurora lights, 21-7, in their best game of the season. Leach, Cahill, and Flora starred on the offensive, each reeling off long gains. The ponies lost their last conference game to DeKalb, 20-6. Although they were outplayed most of the game, they fought till the last whistle blew. T.his game ended the season as it was decided not to have a post-season or Thanksgiving Day game. ri' e 3 7- q .

In bringing to gether his recruits he discovered that few of previous ex- perience were to be found. Half of the squad were inex- perienced, and only one letter man of last year was eli- gible for both semesters. A number of the boys were comparatively small which later proved a serious handicap against larger teams. This gave little encouragement, but several weeks of hard practice smoothed out the troubles, and Captain Jones's quintet was soon in readi- ness to do battle for E. H. S. CAPTAIN EUGENE JONES "Gene" deserves much credit for his work this year. He was a real leader of the boys, and probably no one was more concerned about the team than he. During the season Jones played at almost every position with equal ability. His cool-headed- ness and qualities as a leader place him among the best captains in E. H. S. history. He will be eligible for the first semester next year. R A Y M O N D H A L L "Ray" was another young man to "graduate" to the heavies from the lights. He played at forward, and what he lacked in size was more than made up for by his speed. Hall worked hard all season and was one of the most determined fighters on the squad. Sorry to say this was his last year. ROBERT WAGNER "Bob" played center and forward, playing both positions very well. He appeared in many of the games, either starting or substituting, and he proved to be a great help in this respect. Bob will be lost to the team as he graduates this year, and a valuable man is certainly being lost. C A R L K E R B E R "Cully" played quite regularly with the team during the last semester. He had little chance to do anything during the first part of the season but appeared in quite a few games during the latter part. He played forward and played it commendably. H A R O L D F L O R A "Shrimp" came over from the lightweights to fill a position with the "bi brothers." He was first given a chance at forward, but later proved a greater value at running guard. His dribbling and accuracy at the basket accounted for more than his share of the points. He will be back for only one semester next year. 76 il-nz TJQ2'-J Q-Z.mQ.?Wg2771.,l'hLi7f:g?hl.fT1 gzyggy-2-5 ,S George was probably the most consistant player on J the team this year, due, to a certain extent, to his pre- N Q vious experience on the lightweight teams and in tourna- l ment play last year.

At the end of the first semester George became ineligible because of the semester ruling, and his loss was keenly felt. l HERMAN WALSER Walser was only a sophomore and prior to this year had had very little experience at the game. Nevertheless, C he has been named one of the most consistant men on the J squad. "Herm" was stationed at forward and back- - guard, and at the latter position was one of the best in the conference. GEORGE KOCHIS L THOMAS KEANE Keane started right at the beginning of the season, appearing in many of the 'j games. He was a snappy little forward and was always good for a few points during A the game. He has three more years to go, and should make a good showing. FREDERICK EGGEBRECHT Eggebrecht was with the team last year, but had little opportunity to show his worth. This year, however, he snapped out of it and developed a tendancy toward hitting the basket which aided the team a great deal. He played center and forward positions. WYOTT HARDING Harding was another underclassman to make the team this year. He played at center and forward, and due to his size proved a very valuable all-around man. Wyott could always be relied upon, and with two more years should become a remark- able player. 77 1- C.2'Dnli7 Cl-3 -I' .g ' - C- ,Cg,fSN-,,--,,f 4.

Because Elgin had had such remarkable basketball teams in the past three years one is likely to underrate the team that represented E. H. S. this year. Captain Jones and his comrades finished with six victories and nine defeats, and scored 275 points to the total ofi291 of their opponents. In most of the games lost the Maroons were defeated by a very narrow margin, and several were, so close that luck alone made the decision. Though they made no remarkable records, the boys showed a fine spirit, win or lose, and deserve much credit for their efforts. l fl - Lf -Jil? -m -ll results will probably be very different. 495' w Tl! fn! .

'Ax L.1-x eff L.f'xLf HL-ZW l TRACK ANI Q It has been the desire of the coaches to put track on X an equal basis with the other major sports, basketball and football. Track, because it depends on the qualities of the individual and because of the variety of activities it includes, is one of the most beneficial competitive t sports. However, track has not commanded the interest l in the past years that it should. This year a series of indoor and telegraphic meets was arranged during the winter and early spring months. 7 a telegraphic meet with Proviso, and a triangular meet - with Waukegan and New Trier. Up until this time very few track men came out in spite of the urgent requests of Mr. Coutchie. But with the termination of basket- ball and the arrival of better weather, permitting out- door practice, the track squad began to increase. In the track events they were showing up best, their greatest weakness being in the field events. In the next meet, at Northwestern, Jones placed second in the half mile, and a telegraphic meet with Rockford proved the CAPT- JONES Maroon clnder men superior, scoring 64 points to their opponents 31. Because the Maroon must go to press before the end of the track season the most important events must be omitted. Under the coaching of Mr. Coutchie and the captaincy of Eugene Jones, we may expect nothing short of the records made in the past few years. Probably the most outstanding individuals on the team are Jones, Kelley, Hubert, Burt, and Leach. Jones is expected to break Conference records for the half mile. There is no reason for doubting that this 'team can win both the county and the "Big Seven" meet. The schedule for the remainder of the season is as follows: April 30-A triangular meet with East and West Aurora at Aurora. May 7-Kane county meet at Batavia. May 13 and 14-State preliminaries at Elgin. May 20 and 21-State finals at Champaign. May 28-Big Seven meet at Elgin. June 4-Stagg interscholastic.

The routine of the Camp was not hard, and the Camp was full of fun. Different athletic classes, which included baseball, tennis, swimming, and archery, were held. Our President, Marion Pyott, showed her skill in the tennis tournament, but was eliminated in the semi-finals, Oak Park, which had thirty girls at the Camp, won the banner which is presented every year to the school earning the most honors. This year the girls of the G. A. C. hope that they can get to- gether and send more girls so that we also may have a chance to win the banner for our school. 84 'I N urerg Miss Logan, Adviser.

This was shown by the number of girls that reported for practice every night. The sport requires hard practice and skill. Between the quarters and halves of the Elgin-Freeport football game, an inter- esting hockey game was played between two picked teams. The Orange team, whose captain was Florence Fredericks, won by a score of 2-1. Carolyn Reid was the cap- tain of the Blues which was made up largely of upper classmen. Marion Dakin made the goal for the Blues, and Marian Phillips made both of the goals for the Orange. After faithful and hard practice, the Seniors won the Interclass Tournament. The whole team and the subs deserve praise for their splendid work. The captains of the respective teams are: Senior, C. Reid, Junior, F. Fredericksg Sophomore, M. Gray, Freshmen, M. Dakin. At the end of the season Miss Logan chose an all school team, C. Reid, M. Gray, M. Goble, V. Soper, M. Pyott, B. Lasher. L. Olhaber, N. Fedou, B. McNerney, F. Yaffe, A. Tobin, M. Renner, L.

This is a very selective group since you must be able to stand on your head, turn hand springs, sommer sault, form the cart wheel, and perform other stunts that are just as difficult. Several performances were put on this season which were greatly enjoyed. The group de- serves a great deal of-praise for its efforts and hard work. Girls that participate in any of the performances must have vigor, zeal, alertness, and alacrity. It is hoped Ly Miss Logan that next season more girls will become members of this group. ffl l L .. il... Old Anchov lik: BASEBALL Practice for baseball, the American peoples' favorite sport, was started immedi- ately after the basketball tournament. This sport develops good team work and accuracy.

Each organization in school is represented in the tournament. A great deal of interest is created by a tournament of this kind as it is possible to find which organization boasts the finest team. For the last two years the French Club won the championship. After this tournament was completed Interclass practice was started. This year Miss Logan had a new plan which made it possible for more girls to participate in the Interclass Tourney. Each class was divided into three groupsg the Reds, Yellows, and Blues. A manager was appointed for each team. Each of these teams played against each other. When two were eliminated, the winning team played the win- ning team of another class. The Sophomores were the champs, with Alice Dufresne captain. . , X zf' 6 l'Z Oi C lfZC1il'Z 'Ex 'P f1??ji.' SOCCER The girls had added another autumn sport to their ever-increasing list. Soccer is new to the girls, nevertheless, there were large numbers that reported for practice at Lord's Park. This year the sport was open to Sophomore, Junior, and Senior girls only. The game requires strenuous playing, but it develops good team work. The lineup is similar to that of hockey. There are five forwards, three half-backs, two full-backs, and a goal keeper. 87 l . gzip-25 g,f'2u Q-gin,- 3 C.?5Q2Dc,lbc.?7gz"DQ2T!1-251-23CZ-UC!-5 l J 2-.xggfgyc-x2rS.,brS2CiX ff --vf fielwgzm c..f'5t.f'1L.2's NJ J ,I 1 R, VQLLEYBALL When the call for volleyball was given, very keen interest was shown with the result that there were four very good teams this year.

The Freshmen girls walked away with the championship when they defeated the Seniors, 15-25 15-7, in their last game. This game demands teamwork, quickness, and practice. The Freshmen won be- cause they developed these qualities, and because they backed their team 100 percent, in this way developing into very good players. If they continue this, they will carry off many athletic honors. Il iii LW Gi - :. E il GOLF The number of girls that reported for golf after the first call for participants was greater than it has been in the preceeding years. All the matches were played off on the Wing Park course. The weather made it difficult to arrange a definite schedule and possible to play the tournament only to the semi-finals. Golf is be- coming a favorite sport among the girls. More are expected to turn out for the tournament next fall. 88 Urganizations Q--i J C-YLQCYJ f ,Jf 2 -5 Of!

It is composed of a faculty adviser, a president from the student body, and two representatives from each class, the vice-president and secretary being selected from the junior and sophomore classes respectively. The senior and junior class presidents act as ex- officio members, making a total of eleven representatives. The purpose of this organization is to maintain and extend cooperation and harmony, and to bring about a better understanding between individual students, classes, and the faculty and student body. Through the efforts and splendid work of the preceding Councils, the 1927 representatives had a paved road ahead of them leading to the most successful year in the history of the organization. The one-way traffic system, which has helped to relieve the congestion in the school, was most efficiently worked out. This Council surpassed all others in collecting money for locker fees, all of which was used in the interest of the students. Student entertainments in the form of movies, dances, and faculty basketball games were provided by the Council under the direction of Miss Pratt. Loraine Schlager-fPres.J Wendell Muntz-QV.

All members on the faculty vote for the ten girls who they think will be repre- sentative of their class. The student is not chosen for her scholarly record, but on her ability for leadership and her attitude toward taking responsibility. The Dean's office is for the use of every girl. There is always a Council girl present who is willing to assist anyone. It is the aim of the Senior Girls Council to help make the Freshmen girls feel at home and to see that they become acquainted. During the year the Council has worked with the Student Council on different occasions. Also, many successful sandwich sales have been sponsored.

The girls have realized that Miss Rickert's "bargain," as Well as being a standing joke, is all that and even more than she claims it to be. Dancing has always been an important feature of the programs in connection with the entertaining stunts that have been presented this year. The roller-skating fad had a strong supporter in the club. In March there was a party for dignified seniors, snobbish juniors, care-free sophomores, and bashful freshmen to participate in a roller-skating party in the High School Park. Aside from bruised knees and aching limbs, a good time was enjoyed by all, even the teachers. The G. A. C. members have lived up to their name in supporting all athletic events and arousing pep for the boys football and basketball games. Several athletic carnivals were held in the gym after school and proved scream- ing and roaring successes. 94 ii - 4.26123 Q-X .wc.ff1gZDc..f1Lff,..f1-,eff 'I Q..-cx,7CiQC'i2rYa.DC'S2CvAc f P I ., yur.

Harry Spurrier as head cheer leader and Jess Gannon and Wendell Muntz as assistants were selected. Their work after careful coaching by Mr. Utzinger has been greatly appreciated by the entire school. The club has had quite a successful year, putting a lot of pep and enthusiasm into our auditorium sessions held before games.

The purpose of the one hundred and fifty girls is to learn more about their great field of Work, in- cluding foods, clothing, art, household management, home, and science, each girl usually being more interested in certain phases of the Work of every woman, whether employed in the home or in the factory. if Regular programs are held once a month. At this time emphasis is placed on some part of the work. For instance, in January Miss Gray, from the University of Illinois and a specialist in clothing, gave a talk on color harmony in dress. Four parties are held each term. The slogan adopted for these is, "Each party one to be remembered." Other activities: 1. Red Cross bags at Christmas time-filled 50. 2.

Since then it has been one of the most active clubs in High School. The requirements for membership were changed this year on ac- count of the size of the advance class. Only those in the Cicero or Virgil classes are eligible. The purpose of the Club is to stimulate interest, and increase the knowledge of Roman customs and ideals. Meetings are held at the homes of the appointed members the first Thursday of each month. A joint November meeting was held with the Junior Latin and the Spanish Clubs in Room 311. Miss Eunice Getzelman told of her experience abroad, par- ticularly in Spain, Africa and Italy. A progressive dinner took the place of a February meeting. The courses were held at the homes of Misses Nancy Fedou, Alice Tobin, Caroleen Haller, and Betty McNerney. Annually, at the end of the school year, the Club has an all-day picnic at some lake.

A play, "The Roman Wedding," was presented to the members. The conversa- tion was entirely in latin. It was a huge success. The club was also represented in the All School Exhibition and made quite a remarkable showing. Among its contributions was a bust of Caesar, molded out of clay by one of its members. The primary purpose of the club is to cultivate interest in Roman life and customs. This is emphasized by talks given on certain phases of their life, such as, plolitics, games, races, schooling, agriculture, religion, and manner of living in thu omes. 98 l- gzogzo Q-f .1 Lz1Lzfu.f1LffaL,ffvL?mL.,fTV.f'nC2TJCZT7 'll .WE Q.-:gy , gpg, f, C'SQQ'iJfS.7f-SJC 3C'f,1 .wif .. 1-fik-fjf-f"W4?1L-YWVXWQ'-3 S 5 C Q S THE COMMERCIAL CLUB OFFICERS Frank Higgins ,,... .....,.............,,,. ,,,,,,,.,..,w P r esident Hazel Nelson ..... ,.,,,,,, V ice-President Gordon Rohles .,..,..,. ........,.

The Commericial Club has the honor of being the youngest club in the school. When this Maroon is published the club will be two years old. At the beginning of the year the membership was thirty-five, and by the second semester of the year the members totalled one hundred and fifty. This proves that a long-felt want has been filled. Any Sophomore, Junior, or Senior taking one or more commercial subjects is eligible for membership. The object of the Commercial Club is to promote interest among the students going into the business world, and to provide social times where they may get better acquainted with each other. The club has one meeting each month. This meeting is divided into two parts, business and social. At the business session prominent business people from Elgin and Chicago give the students excellent talks on business and methods. The last half of each meeting is devoted to a social time, when games, refreshments, and dancing are enjoyed. The club is well represented in the intra-mural activities of the school. The boys have two basketball teams, the girls one. The boys also have several fine wrestlers. Ice skaters and track teams also competed. Members took part in the various commercial contests held in the spring. The most outstanding thing accomplished by the club this year was the establish- ment of a "Commercial Student Fund." The money from this fund, which was raised by selling printed personal stationary, is loaned to commercial students, who otherwise would have to leave school on account of financial difficulties. Each year the club intends to add a little more to the fund. Toward what more noble cause could a club work? 99 ll . g,z3L j .1 gznq-gaq,?Uq,f3q,zUQ,?JL,ZUL.??7L.Z7C.Z5 ll A , -9 Kllllf' Qijf 2' .,,-'fini' '-4.

Students who have an average of 83 after the first semester are eligible for membership, which is limited to thirty-five. At each monthly meeting the study of one Spanish speaking country is stressed. The program also includes Spanish music and the singing of Spanish songs. At several of the meetings dramatizations of parts of Don Quixote have been presented in Spanish. The club has been very fortunate this year in having talks given by people who have traveled in Spain, Mexico, and Cuba. Through the courtesy of the Pan-American Union at Washington, D. C., the club has secured several rolls of films on Spanish life which have given the members a keener insight into the customs and manner of living. Under the advisership of Miss Vik the club has undertaken a project, unusual in the history of the club. This is the production each year of five numbers of "El Espejof' the club paper, which is a mimeopraghed paper of four pages, written almost entirely in Spanish. It contains original cartoons, cross-word puzzles, and original stories, in addition to material of interest to Spanish students. Earl Pierson is editor-in-chief and is assisted by Leone Robinson and Marion Wolff. With the money from a sandwich sale the club has purchased a picture, "The Santa Maria," which has been hung in the Spanish class room. On the whole thc club has had a very successful year.

The aims of the club are to foster an interest in French social, literary, and artistic life and to supplement the classroom study thereof. During the current year, the club has distinguished itself by a series of clever dramatics ranging from shadow plays, accompanying the reading of French stories, to a live Parisian "Guignol" operated by skillful members. The "Jour des Rois" was appropritely observed in January by a party in true French spirit. In April the whole school enjoyed "Dix Ans Apres," a clever one-act skit of the American Legion in France, written and put on by the club. Excellent music by French composers has lent variety to the programs. Parliamentary drill in the foreign tongue has been one feature of the regular meetings. This season the French Club Girls' Team added the second championship in succession in Intra-mural Basketball. A number of French song books and reference books have been purchased and presented to the school library. OFFICERS Barbara Lasher ..,. .,.......,,..............., ....,......,.

During the recently completed school year, for the regular monthly meetings of the club, some very fine speakers were secured, who talked on subjects closely related to this particular study. Among these were: Dr. Carpenter of the Pelton Clinic, who talked on cancerg Miss Revett, our school' nurse, who used "Health" as the subject of her talkg Mr. Berryman, President of the Elgin Audubon Society, who gave an illus- trated lecture on "Birds of the Farallones Islands." This lecture was given at an open meeting of the Biology Club in the auditorium. The last speaker of the year was a lecturer sent out by the University of Illinois, R. U. Bills. The subject of his address was "Barberry Eradication." The club, however, is not wholly a study club, some very gay social fetes were staged. Among these were a dance given in the gym, a bunco party, a bridge party, and a picnic to complete the social season. A very high rating was accorded the Biology Club in Intra-mural Basketball, the team being awarded second place in the club league.

J Y it i J THE ELGIN HIGH SCHOOL PLAYERS This club is made up of a limited membership of forty, selected by competitive tryouts from the sophomore, junior, and senior classes, or on the basis of actual ex- perience in a community play. The purpose is not only to train its members in acting on the stage, but also to give them experience in the lighting of the stage, directing a play, managing the needed properties, and in applying make-up. It has added equipment for high school use amounting to approximately two hundred dollars, consisting of an outside curtain, a stage cloth, permanent flats, and scenery screens. The journey to Chicago to see "Twelfth Night" at the Goodman Memorial Theater was a success from all standpoints of education, linked with a good time. Interesting programs have made the monthly meetings extremely valuable as well as enjoyable. Two one-act plays have been presented as auditorium programs for the entire school. Miss Barker, the sponsor, has devoted much of her time to making the club a success. Mr. Utzinger and Miss Ellis, ashonorary members, have not been lacking in their zeal to stimulate interest in the club and to see that the standards and re- quirements for membership are not overlooked.

'N 1 f C Q CHARM "Charm," the mid-year production presented by the Elgin High School Players, on March 3, proved one of the most successful ever given in the High School audi- ' torium. The play was written by John Kirkpatrick. The play centers around a girl, who, tired of her home town, decides to go to C New York. In trying to keep her from going her parents buy a book, called the "Book of Charm," which tells how to be charming, make love, and so forth. Follow- fi ing its teachings her parents and Joe Pond get into many comical situations at a party. In the last act there is a Hght, but in the end everything turns out right. Every character excelled in his or her part, making the play delightful and charming. CAST Ida May Harper ....... Mrs. Harper ,,,, C Mr. Harper ,,.,, Joe Pond ....... Mrs. Wilson ..,..

This year it has been highly praised for its assurance and almost profes- sional finish. While Miss Knudson and the orchestra feel that there is much to be improved, the school is more than satisfied and proud to have such an organization. Miss Knudson should be congratulated upon the splendid Work she has done with the orchestra this year. Rehearsals are held three days alweek during seventh period. Compositions of the highest type are studied: Schubert's Unfinished Symphony, Hadyn's Surprise Symphony, and many smaller classics. The orchestra furnished music for the Kane-Kendall County Institute, the class plays, the Comedy Concert, for the Parent-Teachers Association, the grade Music Memory Contest Concert, and for various civic organizations. The climax of the year's work was the concert held in the Spring. The addition of a new instrument, the bassoon, filled a needed gap this year. If the progress made by this organization is kept up, it will soon be the best in the state.

Its real function is to produce good music in a musicianly manner, placing emphasis on technique, tone quality, balance, and interpretation. That the Band had these objectives in mind was manifested by the kind of music included in its repertoire. From the classical they played Greig's "Huldigungsmarsch" and "Peer Gynt Suite," and Tschaikowsky's "Valse Des Fluersf' Among the lighter numbers were King's "Princess of India" and "A Night in June." On November 4th the Band had the unusual distinction of playing under the baton of John Phillip Sousa. During the intermission of his matinee performance, they played "The National Game" by John Phillip Sousa, and "For Liberty" by Mor- ris, under his direction, after which he presented to them the Sousa loving cup. This is an occasion which will long be remembered by the members of the Band. Besides playing for football and basketball games, the Band presented two very fine concerts, one given in the Auditorium on April lst and another given in the High School Park. ' Our two new music instructors, Miss Knudson and Mr. Reese, have shown them- selves able leaders, and have combined their efforts to make the Band the best or- ganization possible. Because of their ability and enthusiasm, we are looking for big- ger and better things next year. OFFICERS FOR 1926-27 Girls Band Edna Kowert ..... ...........,.,.,.....,,....... ........,..., .

This organization may well be compared with the "subs" on the athletic teams, since the members are being prepared to fill the positions left vacant by the seniors. The Second Orchestra is composed of those music students who are not far enough advanced to enter the First Orchestra. Rehearsals are held two periods a Week and special emphasis is placed on tone quality, rhythm, and ensemble playing. . The splendid work of Mr. Thomas in the grades is already bearing fruit, as shown by the large number of freshmen desiring to join this organization, many being disappointed, due to conflicts. 108 ly . ggfgyg-lj gg .mg-gng,l7glng.lu.fnLz'D I 1 X, x 1 w. .1 l , , I - In . 4 X l , A , it ii? f 'iii' - g if ' ,K ,KXVYVJC-xg,fX,,.-NX,,rXX,a gf N' -..V 7 :ifQailifffnf-X11-f1s2'QgQll lg. ll , 1' I il M i 'Li ll 1?

Under Miss Knudson's capable handling of the baton they also gave many programs for Elgin clubs and societies. An innovation this year was the use of uniforms, neat black smocks with white collars and cuffs. The girls have worked especially hard, building up a fine repertoire. They en- tered the Kane County contest at St. Charles, giving excellent renditions of some very difficult numbers. The St. Charles High School girls took the first honors. OFFICERS Cornelia Manley .

Much of the time during the two periods of meeting is spent in vocalizing, sus- taining tones, and in learning to breathe and sing correctly. Inside of a year one is able to notice a marked improvement in tone quality. and in the ability to follow cor- rectly the director. All of the girls in the Glee Club and members of the various choruses took great pleasure in singing the Christmas Carols at both hospitals, Rest Haven, Old Peoples' Home, and Larkin Childrens' Home, and felt fully repaid by the joy it gave the in- mates. They also provided and delivered gifts to each child at the Larkin Home. OFFICERS Eileen Funk ,,,,. ..,,.l,,,,.........,......l.., ,l.,,,, P r esident Helen Behm .,,,, .......

The board -is made up of a president, two vice-presidents, a secretary, and treas- urer. Mr. Goble, principal of the school, is president ex-officio. The two vice- presidents are students elected from the senior class by their classmates. The secretary and treasurer are faculty members, elected by the faculty as representatives of that group. .An important duty of the board is that of appointing a staff, preferably from the journalism classes fas they are familiar with the type of work! to edit the paper. Annually the board sponsors a Comedy Concert to help defray expenses con- tracted by the paper during' the year. Any surplus is given to the scholarship fund.

Previous to this year our paper had not been self-supporting. This year, for the first time, "The Mirror" became financially independent of funds raised by the Mirror Board through the Comedy Concert. Its circulation this year has far out-stripped the records of other years, setting a record of 900 copies printed per week. More than 100 copies are exchanged weekly with accredited high schools throughout the United States, one copy being sent as far as Melbourne, S. Australia. If the staff may trust the comments of its friends they may feel satisfied that there has been improvement in several departments, especially in the enlargement of the personal column and the change in the character of its news. Among the most important events sponsored by "The Mirror" during the past year was the Comedy Concert presented on the 25th of March, 1927. This is an annual event that has become a tradition. For several years past interest in the event waned, but this year a tremendous effort was made by the Mirror Staff to make the Comedy Concert of 1927 the most outstanding in years. It is generally conceded to have been such, the auditorium having been nearly filled to capacity at both per- formances. Through the means of streamers, and other typographical display, front page articles, and editorials, the paper has supported all school events such as sports, plays, clubs, and music activities, especially the Sousa Concert, November 4, 1926, and the Annual Band Concert on April 1, 1927. Subscribers received 36 copies of the paper during the school year, including the following special editions: T'he Annual Thrift Week Edition, which emphasized the thrift movement and the program which was put on in the auditorium by members of the staff, The Christmas Edition which came out in the season's colors, the May 2 issue edited by members of the Junior Class, the annual Journalism-I edition printed May 23, and finally the Senior Class Day issue printed on June 3. It has been the constant aim of the staff to have "The Mirror" reflect the ilfe of the school and to have our advertisers benefit by their business associations with "The Mirror". J.

To make it easier for succeeding staffs we have added a new position to the Maroon, that of Junior representative. In working on the annual in his Junior year he sees the diHiculties that arise, and will' be better able to cope with them the next year. Earl Pierson was chosen by a faculty committee to fill this position on the 1927 Maroon. This year a budget was set which we could not exceed, but in spite of this we hope we have put out a book which will please all. T'he staff has worked hard, long and industriously, and we wish to give them our hearty thanks. We also wish to express our appreciation of the help of all others who have made this book possible, especially Miss Newman, our faculty adviser, who has been an invaluable aid.

Miss Barker Very ably directed this production and had a great deal to do in making the play a success, as she has always done in previous productions. Honor Bright, a book agent, finds herself in a very exclusive home, on her first adventure in selling books. She is mistaken by Mr. Carton who believes her to be Tot Marvel, Richard Barrington's financee. Richard on seeing Honor pleads with her to help him in his trouble for just a short time. Everyone believes her to be Tot. In her effort to help Richard, Honor feels a faint tugging at her heart. After many laughs and an especially captivating climax, where Honor sells more than a book, the play comes to a close. Tout est bien, que finis bien. The cast, many of whom had had experience in the Junior play the preceding semester, proved themselves quite proficient in the art of acting. Perhaps some of them will go on the stage as a profession, who knows? ' Delightful music was furnished by the orchestra, and it was greatly appreciated by the audience. 123 1 cg L,f7gf.wQz11LlDn2'ugZrmxfmgfT'Q?6gzDLZDcf13clDg.f1g2nt.l3LZ'7tZ3 l .Q - Wv, Q--4' JC'i 2C Jf Qf JF?2?i'Y , " fwL,f1m,f-w uficff-wufv 1-11-D-11 J ,I v J Q . f C 7 C THE CAST Honor Bright ,,,.,,.

A rich young man, with nothing to do, wagered that he could make two young people fall in love, if the right environment was pro- vided. The environment worked over-time, making an electrician find himself hopelessly engaged to three young women, and be rejected by the one person he did love. Jimmie Farnsworth loses his bet and finds that the environment has affected him by making him fall in love with a very good-natured, sweet girl, Ruth Franklyn by name. The climax came after a lively and heart-breaking week-end. The curtain fell with everyone saying, "I Loved It." All the parts were cleverly portrayed, showing that the Juniors had real talent in their class. To Miss Barker should go th rs' of producing a play of such a remarkable standing, and at success. aa ' "xi X I 5 w Jimmie Farnsworth ., .i... .Harry Endicott .,..

Every stunt was enthusiastically received by the large crowd, which filled the Auditorium. Never before has the student body shown such keen competition or lively interest in a production of this kind, and it is hoped that such originality, as shown this year, may be carried out in future Comedy Concerts. "The Mellerdrammeru was a very splendid pun on words. The scene, being laid in Spain, was very realistic, all parts being played with deepest sincerity. Myrtle Spiegler as the director of this stupendous picture cer- tainly showed possibilities for a future vocation. Why is why? If so why? This happens to be the answer to the clever act "Solid Ivory" given by Arthur Ackmann and Edwin Kind. The actors acquitted them- selves delightfully, displaying much humor and nonsense. "The Dern Scoundrel" proved how very hard you must try in order to succeed in securing your parents' consent to marry her. Edwin Tegner, Frances Dorring- ton, and Gerald Roller played their parts very cleverly with a good supporting cast. "Melody Kings" was' a delightful act which proved to be one of the most interesting on the bill. It was chuck full of syncopation and was cause enough to give Paul Ash something to worry about. Bernice Gromer led the orchestra. The girls all showed superior talent. "Bridget O'Flynn" and her realistic modern daugh- ter portrayed a humorous skit. The daughter, Georgiana Glos, spent all her time thinking up excuses to give her mother when she returned home. Marion Dakin as the severe mother took her part very well. Beautiful colored costumes, lovely girls, and excep- tionally flne singing by Alice Tobin and Williard Turner, was received with great delight by the audience in an unusual act called "Memories" Each type of girl was characteristically portrayed. "The Battling Amazon" reveals its own name. It is none other than a real prizeiight, where each thinks she knows more about it than the other one, and finally the referee, Alice Wagner, is very gracefully Uknocked out." "I'm crazy, you're crazy, we're crazy now." Yes, and the audience was about crazy when the "Royal Flush" ended. The four students who participated in this act all did very well. The crazy part came when Richard Rovelstad appeared as the Prince of Wales, King Alfonso, and other notables. The Girls' Glee Club with their fine intonations and voice harmony sang a few delightful numbers to an at- tentive and appreciative audience, The Glee Club was directed byMiss Knudsen. Jumping here, rolling there, hopping and tumbling somewhere else were lively "acrobats" of all kinds. It kept the audience busy keeping track of each "miss" as she performed her particular stunt. Many gym girls participated in this act, having been trained by Miss Logan. "Loves' Labor Lost" was a delightful little act starring Nancy Fedou as a vivacious Happer and Margaret Gray a suitor. The comedy running through this little playlet was composed entirely from book titles. Each supporting character took her part Well. 126 ll-Lf-:Liu -I C-Z7 l Q-f: JCS2c'iJfS.Jf'i2f'iX-if WTI .. re a ' " gl' VARSITY DEBATE Elgin High's Debate Teams started their year, after reading and organizing much material, with a practice debate at West Aurora on the question, Resolved: That the United States should cancel the war debts of the allies. Bessie Clark, Cleo Krogs- rud, and Gerald Helman composed the negative side, while Emerson Crocker, Melvin Shearer, and Margaret Goble formed the affirmative. On March 24, Elgin debated DeKalb. Both of our teams lost, the negative losing 1 to 2 and the affirmative 0 to 3. The team became determined to win from Rockford on March 31, but Rockford defeated not only our affirmative team Q2 to lj who remained at home, but also our negative Q3 to OJ who journeyed to Rockford. To end the year's work in debate, a new experiment was tried at Rockford. It is called the Oregon method of debating. Gerald Helman and Melvin Shearer upheld the negative side of the debate question for Elgin. The debate was held before the Rockford Business and Profssional Womens' Club, who received it with enthusiasm. Instead of the formal rebuttal, the debaters cross-questioned each other and then concluded it with questions from the audience. In a program at the Rotary Club on March 21, our affirmative team debated our negative team on the debt question. The Rotarians enjoyed it and expressed a wish that it become an annual event. Medals were given by the Elgin Lions Club to the varsity debaters again this year. FRESHMEN-SOPHOMORE DEBATE In order to stimulate more class spirit in the freshmen and sophomore classes, a new activity was started. It is called the inter-class Freshmen-Sophomore debate, for the Larsen trophy. Mr. Utzinger had charge of initiating and sponsoring this event. The freshmen squad, composed of George Palmer, Valeta DeBushe, Willard Well- nitz, Edith Pierson, and Kathryn Byrne, were coached by Evelyn Clinch of the ad- vanced speech class. The Sophomore squad, made up of Jacob Manning, Thomas Pierce, Glenn Bohl, Marian Dakin, and Marguerite Weed, were coached by Marion Pyott also of the speech two class. The sponsors of each class also assisted their teams. At the time this is being written, the two squads are hard at work preparing for the mental contest. It is hoped that this work will train future varsity debaters. The debate is to be held on May 4 in the Auditorium, before the freshmen and sopho- more classes only. This will undoubtedly become an annual event. 127 I 252.3 C2 .1 L-Z-5,11 c.f'sL,1'-1L.2'xQ,fw:-3 n-5 ' MLW 0' 55,7 Q-.gggggryq-X ,gfxigfi2cf.Jci:' .psf C...Z'3L2'5 rfffwtff'-wr.,Zw SOCIAL EVENTS SCHOOL DANCES "I could dance forever to that music." "Isn't it wonderful?"-- These and many other remarks have been heard throughout the school 4 year, while many students made merry to the music furnished by diier- -. Ent orcfiestras at the regular monthly parties sponsored by the Student Q OUHCI . H To them should go the credit of having this one outstanding social event each month. c The Christmas party was a special feature of the year. Balloons, candy canes, and special music all met with great success. 17 If G. A. C. PARTIES There has been no club in Elgin High School that has enjoyed more successful parties than the Girls Athletic Club. During the past year many gay and delightful times have been had. Dancing Was always engaged in and usually capped the climax of the evening. The programs presented throughout the year were al- ways different and novel, from Indian pow-vvows, to musical ' and dancing numbers. M-., More members belong to the G. A. C. than any other club in high school. The officers and different committees are al- Q9 Ways busy all the year planning good times for the girls. Last but certainly not least comes the refreshments. Us- ually dainty little cakes with ice cream made to order, or peculiar shaped sandwiches with hot cocoa, servedl as de- lightful Heats." The parties this year have more than been a success, and it is hoped that they may meet with as much triumph next year. N FOOTBALL "E" MENS BANQUET Again this year the cooking classes, under the super- Q gt? vision of Miss Roe, sponsored a very successful banquet ' " in the iibrary of the High School. f " I A very wholesome dinner was served, after which 45W'Vel Gun several speeches Were given by business and faculty men, Mr. T. A. Larsen acting as toastmaster of the oc- casion. The outstanding feature of the evening was the election of "Don" Ferran for captain of the 1927 football team. Carl Kerber, former cap- tain, gave a short talk preceding the election. Certainly a jolly time was had by all, and each left with a light heart and a happy smile. 128 L-273g-277 cl-i sZvc.z1wC1f14.ffv2.ffTUk2'1L'!U "ll Lf ., in - 'WT 615 ' E :X Cgx-,Q-ggfis-,fijc- 5f"ibf' 4 x A L,,Li'5E7lj1r,-ffNl.f'dL-3-,g,gqS...d COMMENCEMENT-'26 There is one week in the school year that is looked forward to, perhaps more than any other time. This is commencement week, when the Seniors reign. On Friday, June 3, 1926, all gathered in the auditorium to hear the class day program which the Blue and Copper were presenting. Music, class wills, prophecies, singing, poems, and dedication of the Maroon were all cleverly and attractively presented to the school. That noon the Senior breakfast was held in the Methodist church. Speeches and singing were all very much enjoyed, not to mention the delightful breakfast served by the ladies of that church. The following Sunday Reverend Burrows, pastor of the Grace M. E. Church, delivered the baccalaureate sermon, a very fine and edu- cational one on "Our Unfinished Knowledge". Many couples enjoyed the gay music furnished by Jim Bush's orchestra at the Junior-Senior Prom, on June 4. The gym was attrac- tively decorated in pastel shades, ferns, and lovely settees. The following Tuesday night the Seniors held their last big party , by entertaining at the Senior Prom. Maurey Lipsey and his band furnished the enchanting music. Many times throughout the evening this remark was heard: "On with the dance, let joy be unconfinedf' 35, ,L The party, needless to say, was a huge success and -M33-fiii will long be remembered by the large number of couples FHIKW that attended. H Last, but certainly not least-Graduation night. It sag? ' 1 r'A,. was not the green, irresponsible, reckless freshman of Ofd 11,5 'A four short years ago, but the young man and young wo- ' man, ready to go out into life, that slowly walked arm in 080 Clock arm down the aisle in the final procession of their high school career. The beautiful pastel shades of the girls' gowns aiorded a singular contrast with the dark suits of the boys. Blue and Copper was everywhere in evidence. It was with sad hearts that the Seniors listened to the farewell address, that they sang their song, and received theirdiplomas. Not, any more, dignified Seniors of the Elgin High School, but young men and f ' young women with great ambitions and deter- mination to go out into life.
