"In trying to please all, you please none,"
is an old saying, the meaning of which is
brought back to us more forcibly in trying
to edit an annual Worthy of our class.
We hope this book, in the years to come,
will be a constant source of pleasant mem-
oriesg all We ask is that you accept it for
what it is, a permanent record of the more
important events during this, our last year
in Elgin High School.

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1928
Motto: Still Higher Flower: Sweet Pea
In the year of 1924, 241 freshmen entered the doors of Elgin High School and
turned to the first page of their four year book. From that time on they all started
to look forward to the year when they would have the title of "Dignified Seniors"
bestowed upon them.
Their freshman and sophomore years were not filled with a great many activities,
but they at once entered into all athletics and were always ready to back any project
presented to them.
Finally the book was closed upon their first two years, and they were classified
as Juniors. Now they must have some able leaders, and they chose Royal Fischer,
President, Harold Flora, Vice-President, and Dorothy Glenn Beverly, Secretary.
"What colors shall we choose to represent our class?" was the next problem of the
class of '28, and they solved it with ease and originality by choosing cherry and gray.
To show what their co-operation really meant they very successfully sponsored the
concert given by the orchestra and glee club. The annual junior class play, "Captain
Applejackf' was then given, a.nd much talent was revealed to the school. Even though
these many activities took a great deal of time, the class was proud to be so promi-
nent in athletics and to have juniors as captains of both. of the football teams.
Another page of our book is turned, and we find these cultured freshmen bear-
ing the name "Digniiied Seniors". No longer are they regarded as underclassmen,
but instead they are the leaders of Elgin High School. Again they must have class
officers, and this time they chose as their leader Emerson Crocker, Eugene Jones
as Vice-President, and Frances Dorrington as Secretary. "The Passing of the Third
Floor Backv was their last big production, and it was labeled with none other than
the title, "Success". In this last year the boys as well as girls entered into all school
activities. The class was represented on the Student Council by Charles Landwere,
Wendell Muntz, and Florence Fredericks.
The book is now completed and carefully closed, and the class members of 1928
leave Elgin High School to start books of their own, the title for each one to be
FRANCES DORRINGTON, Secretary.

JUNIOR CLASS HISTCRY
In January, 1925, one hundred forty-two freshmen invaded old Elgin High School.
Two hundred forty-nine more joined them in September, all of whom helped 'to
form the future class of '29, The freshman year was quite uneventful except for
the winning of the inter-class basketball championship by the girls. Richard Dal-
bey and Robert Lowrie represented the class on the Student Council.
The sophomore year seemed to hold more enthusiasm and pep for its members.
Ready to back them on the Student Council were Lois Arnold and Robert Dwyer.
Very successfully staged was the Commercial Club play, in which Dorothy Karge
and Gerald Biggers of the class of '29 took leading parts. Again this year the
inter-class basketball championship was won by the girls. An active part in other
athletics was also taken by both the boys and the girls.
The junior year was started off with a bang by the organization of the class.
Fred Salisbury was chosen President, Charles Karsten Vice-President, and Polly
Gray Secretary. Fletcher Lamphere and Donald Ferran were chosen members for
the Student Council. Black and scarlet were selected for the class colors. Some-
thing a little new and different was tried with, the sweaters by having four letters
instead of the usual two. The Juniors were very proud of the fact that the captain
of the lightweight basketball team and the president of the newly organized Maroon
Athletic Club was Carver Leach, one of their classmates. An old play "Peg O' My
Heart" by J. Hartley Manners was revised and given by the Juniors as their class
play on May 17 and 18. On June 1 was the much looked for Junior Prom. It was
a huge success. All the decorations were black and scarlet, the class colors.
Here's to the success of the coming year.

SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY
Someone said not long ago that this Sophomore Class, the brilliant class of '30
are, but maybe everyone doesnt hear about it. They will, now.
To begin with, we chose Bert Ashman and Herman Walser to represent us in the
Student Council. Both are letter-meng so we feel that we are ably represented.
Besides Walser and Ashman Thomas Keane, Wyott Harding, Cedric Greenawalt
and John McNerney also received letters for football or basketball.
The girls, not to be outdone by the boys, have many good athletes in their ranks.
Dorothy Bau, Elizabeth Brydges Helen O'Malley', and Opal Strube are our best
basketball players. Elizabeth Brydges is also our star skater.
The sophomore girls have many of their members in the First Girl's Glee Club
and the Orchestra. Among these are Jane Johnson, Mary Stahl, and Margaret
Gabby. Among the boys in the music department, Robert Brightman, a cornetist, is
7 7 I
is not participating in as many school activities as previous classes have done. We
The death of Helen Holtgren, 11B, aroused the sympathy of the whole school.
Out of a class of two hundred eighty-five, a good percentage is on the monthly
and semester honor-rolls, which shows that the Sophomores haven't forgotten what
they really come to school for. '
Even in their freshman year the class of '30 took in many school activities,
becoming so bold as to give a program in auditorium one morning, which even
the Seniors enjoyed.
Did we hear someone say the Sophomore Class isn't doing its part? We think
not, and we hope that the Class of '30 will continue to do its best and be an honor
to E. H. S.

FRESHMAN CLASS HISTORY
of progress and learning for a few days in January, 1927, to take aboard one hun-
dred fifty students entered as Freshmen. They were well started on their journey
when it was again necessary to make port to ind two hundred sixty-four more wait-
ing to be taken aboard.
Although entering with awe and timidity, with the guidance and assistance of
our competent crew, the faculty and with the companionship and cheerful encourage-
ment of our ship-mates the upper classmen, all soon became accustomed to and ac-
quainted with the ways of the school.
Now that the first year has come to an end and we look over the history of the
Class of 1931, we feel that it will be a credit to our school, for the Freshmen have
entered into the school spirit and activities with vim and vigor. Even so early there
has been good work done in athletics, clubs, and honor roll.
The girls went out for all sports, anduafter a hard pull finally won the volley-
ball tournaments. The boys did equally well, entering into football and basketball
and showing good sportsmanship all through.
The class elected Alice Crocker and Franklin Gannon to represent them on the
Student Council, and a committee composed of one from every freshman session room
to act under these two.
We were glad to stop again in January, 1928 to welcome another happy, eager
cargo of one hundred forty-nine.
Doubtless our four year's journey through Elgin High School will often times
be stormy falready we mourn the loss of two of our comrades, Richard Bonin and
Milton Schultzb, but it will be intermingled, no doubt, with many days of pleasure.
And we hope that the great majority will land safely together at the port of "Dig-
nified Senior", from there to launch out into a broader "Sea of Knowledge".
Bon voyage, Class of '31.

The primary function of a school is the promotion of learning. While in school
we are engaged in so many activities that scholarship has not been receiving as much
recognition as it deserves. However, the importance of high scholastic standing and
the hard work necessary for it are being recognized more and more.
In Elgin High the names of those receiving an average grade of ninety or above
in four subjects for the month are placed on an honor roll which is published every
month. At the end of the semester those who have received a final grade of ninety
or above in all subjects are placed on the semester honor roll.
Heretofore no material scholastic award has been presented. Within the last
three years the Rotary Club has presented an Honor Medal to those pupils who have
been on the monthly honor roll for the year. A special auditorium program is ar-
ranged for this presentation.
The roll increases every year. The list on the next page gives the names of
those who received the award this year.
-3' " l
Every year the Class of 1922 presents an Honor Medal to the most representa-
tive senior boy and girl. Eligibility for the award is based on scholarship, leader-
ship, and athletic ability.
Last year the medals were given to Margaret Goble and Raymond Hall.

all of the coaches of interscholastic boys' athletics.
It plays a very important part in the activities of the school since it determines

For five years Coach Wilson has been in charge of the Maroon football and
lightweight basketball teams. "Curley's" faith in Elgin men, personality, determina-
tion, and perseverance are qualities which have made him the most popular man in
athletics. We can plan on a very good football team next year.
"Cliffs" first two years were spent in assisting Coach Wilson with the heavy-
weight football team. Last year he took the job of making the Ponies" team, and
produced the champions of the conference. He has greatly developed both basket-

ball and track teams.
Rogers helped Wilson with the task of developing the heavyweight team, His first
football coaching at Elgin High shows that he "knows his stuff."
Assisting Coach Adams with lightweight football was "Curly" Steele, a new
member of the coaches last fall. "Curly" is a man who can be depended upon, and
we all sincerely hope that he will be back next year and help with the making of an-
other 'lightweight championship team.
"Hank", an all-conference-guard in '25
and '27, proved himself an able leader for
fourth year of heavyweight football. His
position at guard will be a very difficult
one to fill, and his absence in the line will
be felt by all of the team.
With two years' experience under his
belt, Oldham. should prove to be an able
general of the team in 1928. His ability
for deadly tackling and consistant playing
brought him an all-conference position in

next year and those coming up from the
Ponies, Oldham should lead a team of

wishes for a successful season.
the Maroon eleven. This is "Hank's" WALSER
At quarter or at half "Hermie"'played
a brand of football that is found in very
few sophomores. Walser graduated from
the Ponies last year and in '27 he de-
termined to have something to say about
the results of many of the games. He ex-
celled in passing and plunging through the
line. Whenever a yard or two was needed,
the old saying was, "Let Hermie take it".
"Hermie" will be back next year to con-
tinue wearing the Maroon and Cream.
"Shrimp" graduated from the Maroon-
ettes last year, and when the heavies re-
ported for practice, "Shrimp" was among
them. Playing at left half, Flora made
many long gains around end. He proved
himself to be a sensational player in the
Rockford game. After skirting the end
for several long gains he snared a pass
from the hands of many Rabs and made
a touchdown. "Shrimp" will leave a place
in the team that will be hard to fill.
Fritz is another of our all-conference
men. He held down the position of right
tackle throughout the season. He always
played the same kind of a game' the best
you could expect from any man. Blanck
will be back next year and we can plan
on having some fine holes opened up by
Artie played a very consistent game
at the left tackle position. He was a hard
man to get through for a gain and he
could very easily crash through and open
up a hole for his team-mates to tear
through. Artie" has played his last game
of football with the Maroons and he will
leave a big place to be filled next year.
"Ernie" was another lightweight player
of last year to come up to the heavyweight
standards. "Ernie" was our star center,
not only as a center, but as a ground
gainer. He proved his ability to run with
the ball in the DeKalb game. Near the
end of the last quarter he picked up a
fumble and Zig-zagged his way 80 yards
for the final touchdown. He will be back
next year and has a very bright future in
which to become an all-conference man.
"Bunny", the plunging half of the Ma-
roon eleven, did some very creditable work
throughout the season. Thiel displayed
an unusual brand of football in the East
Aurora game by working the ball straight
down the field to the 20-yard line before
he was stopped. "Bunny" has played some
fine football in his four years, and we wish
him lots of luck at college.

'lSteve" was O1dham's partner. Back
from last year's team, "Steve" proved to
be a valuable man to the team both in the
back-field and at end where he snatched
any passes that came his way. He would
be back next fall had he not completed his
"Rex", the hardest hitting tackler in the
conference, held down the position of full-
back. Although "Rex" didn't run with the
ball much, he was right in his place on
defensive. Very few yards were made
through him, and often times he would
break through and throw his 'opponent for
a loss. When "Rex" graduates this year
the team will lose one of its best defensive
course in three years.
For four years "Friday" has been work-
ing with the team. In his last year of
play "Chick" was there most of the time.
Any man who ever played next to him will
say he was a tough man. "Chick" played
particularly well against East Aurora. The
team will certainly miss him when they
call for heavyweight football men next
In spite of his size, "Bob" was deter-
mined to come out for heavyweight foot-
ball. Though it was only his first year
with the heavies, "Bob" displayed some fine
work at quarter and at half. Ballard was
the one who always kicked us out of dan-
ger, showing up exceptionally well in this
phase of the game.
ff:: r t'
Harry is another man who has been
working hard with the team for a long
time. When Anderson was out because of
injuries, Thompson was right on deck to
fill his place. He did a perfect job in
"Hank's" place and showed his ability in
both the Freeport and DeKalb games.
Harry graduates this year, and his loss
will be felt by all the team.
Schultz played the guard position very
creditably whenever called upon and was
always dependable. Eldon played a fine
brand of ball in the DeKalb game, espe-
cially on defense. Very few plays got by
him, and to be stopped by Schultz was no
toss on a feather mattress.
Wyatt came out for' football for the first
time this year. Due to his height and speed
he made a perfect end whenever he was
needed. Wyatt will be on deck next year
to hold down one of the end positions, and
we can expect big things from this man.
Paul has worked hard during his years
at football and is deserving of a lot of
credit. Whenever the opportunity called,
Werrbach was on his toes ready to enter
the game. Though he didn't have a reg-
ular position, he filled in very nicely and
played an excellent game. Paul graduates

With six letter men back and several lightweights who had now reached the
calibre of heavyweights, Coach Wilson, assisted by Coach Rogers, began an intensive
practice shortly after the opening of school. There were many new men out for
the squad this year, and they gave the veterans keen competition for positions on
The Maroons had a very successful season, losing only one conference game
and tying East Aurora, the winner of the "Big Seven", in a hard-fought game. Elgin
seemed to get a number of bad breaks. Although they fought hard to the very last

The outlook for a team next year is nothing but good. With six letter men
back and the lightweight men who will then have reached the rank of heavyweight,
Captain-elect Oldham should plan on forming a championship team. With such an
outlook as this, Clarence has our best wishes for a successful season.

With "CHE" Adams fas coach the Ponies started in with intensive work at the
very beginning of school, and as the season progressed more and more fellows came
out for the squad. After a few weeks of hard practice Adams picked a team that
was mighty hard to equal.
The Maroonettes played a perfect brand of football throughout the year, scor-
ing 224 points fOak Park game 36-01 to their opponents 6.
Captain Cooper proved to be a field general of marked ability, always being
able to put pep and spirit into the fellows when it was needed most.
Cooper, Leach, and Cahill were placed on almost every sport Writer's confer-
ence team. Leach and Cahill performed perfectly in open-field running, as well as
on defensive play, and whenever Captain Cooper had a chance to use them, he slipped
them the ball. Every fellow on the team deserves a great deal of credit for the work
he has done this year in football, and next year the Ponies should not want for ma-
terial in duplicating the performances of this year's team.

headiest players that has ever worn the
Maroon and Cream. Through his untiring

"Ernie" certainly proved himself worthy
of wearing the Maroon and Cream. He
was a man who could be depended upon,
never giving up the game until the last
second of play. He also played a fine brand
of basketball in both of the games played
in the Tournament. Though "Ernie" is
only back for one semester next year, we
shall find him fighting harder than ever
to keep up the good records of basketball
in Elgin High School.
Keane is another sophomore who has
reached the rank of the heavies. He is one
of the fastest men in the conference and
because of this exceptional quality has
proved himself a very capable player. When
points were needed badly, Keane was al-

At the end of the first semester when
Jones and Flora were lost Koschnick came

last game of his career at Elgin High he
had a little tough luck and broke his wrist.
"Ishum" is another man that we lost by
the nine-semester ruling this year. Though
Jones played in comparatively few games
this year, he was in long enough to let
folks know he could still play basketball.
His speed on the floor accounted for many
of the baskets netted by him.

After two weeks of intensive practice the season opened with Elgin playing
several games with the Chicago schools, winning four and losing two games. Elgin
was then prepared to enter the conference and make a creditable showing. Led by
Captain "Hermie" Walser the Maroons went into the conference with all the fight
and determination to win. "Hermie" proved to be a very capable general, his team
winning all but one game, when they went down before the strong team of the Rabs.
Coach Adams has worked hard in the development of this team, and his efforts
are beginning to show. Elgin then entered the District Tournament at Dundee still
fighting to make a reputable showing, but in spite of their determination and untir-
ing eiorts fell before the fast quintet from St. Charles in the second round of play.
With all the men but two back again next year Elgin can expect a very success-

With only two weeks practice chalked up the Ponies opened the season against
Austin High of Chicago. Several other games were played with Chicago schools
before opening the conference season, and it was easily seen that the Maroonettes
were going to offer some keen competition in the conference. Although they went
down before the speedy quintets of Rockford and Freeport, Elgin fought desperately
hard to the very last minute of play. In the middle of the season the team was
broken up by the departure of a very promising forward who was only a freshman,
"Jimmie" Clintsman. When Coach Wilson was sorely in need of a man to fill his
place, "Andy" Anderson stepped. up and soon proved to everyone that he had ability
in basketball. Captain Leach handled the team exceedingly well on the Hoor. He was
one of the headiest generals ever to appear on the team of Maroon and Cream, and
we are all glad that Carver will be back again next year. He also was given' the
position of back guard on the all-conference team. The team as a whole was com-
posed of some very capable players, all of whom will be back next year.
With a year's experience under their belts, some hard practice, and intensive
coaching we will be assured of a very good pony team next year.

Early in February "Cliff" Adams began developing a track team that will bid
fair to be a conference winner. His ability to make friends is largely responsible
for the great number of men that reported for the team. ,
With a good deal of material back from last year and the new material that
presented itself Adams should not want for men. The outstanding men back from
last year include Captain Hubert, Burt, Austin, Cooper, and Leach. Because of
Hubert's experience as a track man and his ability to be a leader he was given the
honor of captaincy by his team-mates.
The team as a whole is fairly well balanced, having a number of men who are
outstanding in the field events as well as those on the track.
Because the Maroon goes to press before the track season is completed We have
printed the remainder of the schedule for the year. March 24 the cinder men jour-
neyed into Northwestern University and entered into the National Interscholastic
Meet. Hubert placed fourth in the high hurdles, which is exceptionally good. The
relay team, composed of Captain Hubert, Austin, Born, Andrew, and McCarthy,
tied for fourth. We think the track team has done very well this far, and we are
sure they will continue as such throughout the remainder of the season.
Besides several dual and triangular meets held in April the season is as follows:
May 5 ...,,,.,........,............ . ........,. Kane County meet at Batavia

the Pirates, composed of Cooper, Kelley, McNerney, Tunison, Roller, and Salisbury.
The sport in which the largest number of boys were interested was basketball.
In addition to the regular school teams there were twenty-four teams playing to
determine the school championship. The Independent Championship was won by
The Terriers who were school champions last year, won the Lightweight Cham-
pionship, but lost to the Pirates in the final game. The Buffaloes were the cham-
pions of the Freshman Lightweight League, and the Cardinals were the Flyweight
Champions. The 9B team won the Lightweight Interclass Championship, which
would indicate that basketball prospects for next year are good. The 9A Flyweights
won in their division, the team being nearly the same as the Cardinals were in the
preceding Independent tourney.
Interclass skating was held for the first time this winter, and a very success-
ful meet was conducted for both boys and girls at Lord's Park. The Juniors
trounced the .Seniors while the Sophomores were winning from the Freshmen.
The golf champions were Eugene Nelson and Wendell Muntz. These fellows
won from a large field, and because of their proficiency were sent to the state inter-
scholastic golf tournement at Urbana. There were about thirty who came out for
tennis and played their matches in the spring tournament.
Along with interclass tennis several of the boys entered into the Big Seven,
Kane County, and several of the dual meets. Elgin was represented Very well in
this field, and the outlook for inter-scholastic tennis next year is very bright. Though
the weather was against them most of the time "Tom" Pierce finally played his way
to victory. -
Horseshoe pitching has been added to the list of sports, and the Fall Cham-
pionship was won by Francis Breen.
Interclass baseball was held both in the spring and fall, and about thirty boys
Forward pass football is being added to the list this spring to furnish an op-
portunity for training for those boys whom the Athletic Association cannot equip
or furnish locker space to in the present field house.
With Mr. Resek as our Coach next year we can assume that the intra-mural
sports in Elgin High will be very successful.

, WILDA L. LOGAN
Miss Logan during her stay at Elgin High School has been the head of all girls
athletics, in which work she has proven highly efficient. Her ability to organize teams
and manage all sports has never yet been surpassed.
Miss Logan's work includes all the various branches of athletics, causing her
time to be very much takeng yet, in spite of the fact that almost her whole day is
passed in instructing gym class, she delights in furthering outside activities, and
tries to interest the girls in sports of all kinds. She has been very successful in
arousing the interest of the girls, shown in the large turn-outs for the new sports
just introduced in the past year. Archery is one of the latest of Miss Logan's under-
takings, and the younger girls show the greatest enthusiasm for the game.
Everyone is desirous of having Miss Logan keep up her excellent work, and in-
troduce more interesting sports for the girls.
As Miss Wood is comparatively new in our school, her participation in athletic
coaching has been more limited. However, her delight and keen interest in ath-
letics of every kind was clearly shown in her willingness and eagerness to assist in
managing the several teams and refereeing the games.
Miss Wood is very popular with all the girls because she has for her motto,
"Always Play Fair,"-a thing which makes the girls love her work.
Her work deals quite extensively with the basketball teams, getting the groups
organized, and having the game schedules played of quickly and systematically,
which is a difficult task.

Hockey entered as a sport for the girls of Elgin High School only a few years
ago, but the interest in it has been stimulated Very much, despite the fact that the
game is rough, and requires long, hard, strenuous practice from which the players
often suffer bruised shins and swollen ankles.
At the first call for hockey players, many eager, enthusiastic girls crowded the
field, desirous of participating in this exciting sport.
Every class, from Freshmen to Senior made an excellent showing in all of the
games, but the Juniors, after a long and hard struggle, emerged victorious.
The captains elected by the four teams were: Seniors, Florence Fredericksg
Juniors, Marion Phillips, Sophomores, Phyllis Schneifg and Freshmen, Edith Pier-

It was with a great resounding "Hurrah!" that everyone greeted the basket-
oall season following close upon volleyball. During this season more enthusiasm
is shown than is shown throughout the entire year of girls' sports. This is due,
largely to the fascination the game itself holds, it being a lively, active game.
It was necessary because of the many girls responding, to form the Independent
League in which any six or more girls could organize and play against the other
teams similarly organized. In these games skill and ability were revealed, and fin-
ally the E. H. S. Specials, headed by Ada Marie Rovelstad, emerged victorious.
Immediately after this the interclub teams were organized. For the third con-
secutive year, the seemingly unconquerable French Club was on the top. However,
the other club teams displayed fine cooperation and good play.
Between the interclass teams the keenest rivalry is always shown. It is during
this part of the basketball season that every girl gives forth her best to help make
her class team successful. The Juniors, who have carried of many other honors,
were the winners. For each of the three games played, a new captain was elected.
The Juniors chose as their leaders, Ada Marie Rovelstad, Frances Roche, and Min-

ce Je Svc or VOLLEYBALL
With much pep and joy all welcomed the volleyball season, which comes soon
after school is started. This year we were fortunate in having one of the largest
turnouts that our school has ever known. Because of a long rainy fall volleyball
games were prolonged, which greatly developed skilled teams.
Each gym class organized a team, and all practiced hard to develop those qual-
ities which are essential in this game, alacrity and teamwork.
For a short period of time it seemed that there could be no victors, for all the
teams were well matched and played fine games, but after a hard-fought struggle,
the fifth period gym class, captained by Louise Kuehner, won the tournament.
Following this the interclass teams were organized. This series was wcn by
the Freshmen. 1

The main purpose of the Council is to make a firmer understanding between
the students and the faculty, and to promote cooperation in the entire school. The
dances sponsored by the Council have proved most successful, the attendance being
much greater than in former years. This increase in attendance has made it pos-
sible to provide orchestras of a much higher calibre. Elgin High School stickers,
sold by the Council, have proved most popular to students and towns-people alike.
The task of composing a new handbook fell upon the present Council, and, although
this was not easy, the book is complete in every detail.
Due to the continued growth and overcrowded conditions of Elgin High, the
Council was forced to have elected an advisory committee composed of one student
from each Home Room. This was to insure a closer relationship to the activities of

The Senior Latin Club was organized to further the interest in Roman cus-
toms, government, and geography.
The meetings are held at the-homes of various members the first Thursday of

Miss Linkfield Very ably discussed the places of importance in Rome, such as the
Forum and the ancient tombs.
Besides the regular meetings a party was held at Christmas time. In Febru-

Wolff, Emma Grimm, Clara Egoroif, and Marion Webb.

Because of the increasing number of students taking Latin and becoming elig-
ible to the Latin Club, it became necessary in 1923 to divide the club into two divi-
sions, Senior Latin Club and Junior Latin Club. In the latter all students taking
Latin three and four are eligible.
The meetings are held once a-month at the home of one of the members, and
social functions of the club are held in accordance with their purpose, which is to
promote an interest in Roman living and Roman customs. One of the outstanding
meetings of the year was the one at which Miss Hazel Linkfield gave an illustrated
talk on her experiences last summer while studying at Rome.
A great deal of credit for a successful year is due to Miss Bradish, who keeps
the students interested in Latin.

"The Elgin High School Players" is open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
Meetings are held twice a month. Its purpose is to promote the knowledge and the
appreciation of drama, and, with this in mind, very interesting programs are given.
One night everyone did something original in an effort to discover the talent
of the members. At one of the early meetings make-up was discussed, and Miss
Barker demonstrated the use of it on several different types. A joint meeting was
held with the Academy Drama Club.
These are only a few of the fine evenings this club has enjoyed, because every
time poetry, plays, and short-stories are read, the lives of famous actors and actresses
are studied, and there is at least one fine musical number given. No member can
fail to derive some benefit from this club.

The Booster Club is organized for the purpose of creating and stimulating pep
and enthusiasm within the student body. The club consists of the senior class, which
chooses the officers, and the. cheer leaders.
An outstanding bit of work done by the club was the organization of the big
pep meeting, parade, and bonfire before the Homecoming Game with Rockford. It
was a great success and showed the fine school spirit of the student body.
The cheer leaders this year are new, but have worked hard and improved rap-
idly. With a little more experience they will become experts. The club has had a
good start and looks forward to a successful year.

Never before has our High School Orchestra been as fully a community organ-
ization as well as an active school affair, as during the present year. 1927-28 has
been an unusually successful year. The orchestra lacks but one instrument of be-
ing a full symphony.
By giving her time untiringly and patiently, Miss Knudson, the director, in-
spires the orchestra to amazing results. Always she is willing and anxious to be of
service. The members respond with surprising interest and cooperation. Their
repertoire consists of pieces beyond most high school orchestras, such as: "Finlan-
dia", Sibelius, "Surprise Symphony", Haydeng "Unfinished Symphony", Schubert.
The annual concert, January 13, was the most successful that has ever been
given. The best musicians in Elgin were attracted toi it and expressed their appre-
ciation of it.
The important engagements during the year were a concert at Palatine, a pro-
gram for the Teachers, Institute, for the Junior Class play, and for the play spon-
sored by the Business and Professional Women's Club. Four of our orchestra mem-
bers represented Elgin in the National Orchestra of over 300 which played in Chi-

The purpose of this organization is to create an interest in glee club work among
the boys of the school. Special attention is given to voice training.
The Glee Club of '28 has had a very successful year. A deep interest was shown
by all the members of the club. They were offered many chances to appear in pub-
lic and always prepared in fine style. The club appeared before the various men's
organizations of the city on different occasions, before the grade school children, the
teachers' conference, the Sunday Evening Club, in a joint concert sponsored by the
civic clubs, and at the festival at St. Charles. As the year progressed their appear-
ances in public increased more and more. They also broadcasted over the radio.
Four of the boys participated in the National Chorus of 300 voices which sang in
Chicago, April 20.
The work of the boys proved that the interest in 'glee club work is growing every
year. Miss Bartz proved herself to be a very pleasing instructor, and well liked by
the members of the club, and praised by those who knew of her eforts. She began
at the beginning of the year with the aid of the club to maintain a high standard
of work, and it can be truthfully said she has accomplished her' aims.

Something strikingly different in the way of class plays was presented by the
Senior Class on the evenings of December eighth and ninth. Deviating from the
usual blithesome class play, "The Passing of the Third Floor Back" by Jerome K.
Jerome went into the realm of something deeper and finer. It unfolded a dramatic
theme which demanded careful interpretation from the actors and which presented
to the audience a great Idea not to be too easily grasped.
SENIOR CLASS PLA-Y
Greed, hate, and jealousy abound in Mrs. Sharpe's boarding house in London.
After the coming of a new boarder, the Stranger, a wonderful change takes place.
The stranger imparts an understanding to each of the other boarders' hearts. When
he leaves, as silently and unheralded as he had entered, Mrs. Sharpe's boarding
house is no longer the same-it is a place of Truth, Love, and Generosity.
Under the expert direction of Miss Juliet Barker the two casts put on a worthy
performance each night. They had a big message to give to the audience, and it was
given with a spirit of humbleness-that of true art. Mr. Utzinger, who super-
vised the. scenery work, was assisted by an able committee. All who had any part
connected with the production of the play did it faithfully and helped to make it
the success which it was.

THE JUNIOR CLASS PLAY
The class of 1928 admirably made its first venture into the field of drama with
the presentation of Walter Hackett's "Captain Applejackv, on the evenings of May
eleventh and twelfth, 1927. i
The plot, full of mystery and excitement, takes a most interesting course.
Briefiy stated, it concerns a young Englishman who tires of his uneventful life, and
plans to seek romance and adventure in some far off land. However, he finds ad-
venture at home with the entrance of spies seeking a hidden treasure, and with
his dream of blood thirsty pirates. Romance he finds with his newly discovered
love, Poppy Fair, who has been his ward for many years. I
Miss Barker, the dramatic director, shared triumph with the cast. The excel-
lent performances were a result of sincere, hard work from all concerned in the pro-
duction. There was splendid acting by the cast, loyal backing by the Junior class,
and a capacity audience each night. The scenery gave evidence of a very com-
petent committee headed by Mr. Utzinger. A word of appreciation should be said
for Miss Knudson and the High School Orchestra for the fine music given between
the acts of the play.
Following is the cast, in two instances the roles were taken by different per-
sons each night:

Once again the Comedy Concert was presented, and once again it turned out
i to be the expected success. W'hile the varied entertainment boasted not of great
1 splendor, stupendous settings, noted humor, nor amazing acting-it was still cheer-
ful, clever, and ambitious.
And here is a report of what took place in the Comedy Concert of Friday, the
"The Court of Common Clay" was an amusing travesty on a court room scene.
The constant rhythm of the act made it original yet made one wonder what a lost
beat might do.
The audience took great delight in "The Ghost in the Boarding School" which
was funny in its way. Miss Mary Lee gave an amusing musical reading, "Kiss
Q "ll Me Again, Kachoo!" Miss Lee was simply immense in this instance.
"The Fifth One," an idiotic skit about nothing at all by Emerson Crocker, was
just thatg Jeannette Gilbert pleased with some good emotional acting. An or-
chestra, for some unknown reason billed as "Kampus Kut-Ups", served its purpose
in presenting a noisy, jazzy dissertation on jazz.
'Tm Gonna Dance Wit De Guy Wot Brung Me" was riotously given by Miss
Margaret Gray and Miss Georgiana Glos. "Cinderella" by Miss Dorothy Rittis
was an amusing skit, done in pantomine.
Brisk and lively was "McKinley Hall, U. of I. 1929". Clever interpolations of
song and dance produced a pleasing effect. "A Day in Spain"- succeeded in being
the most colorful, pretentious, and ambitious undertaking.
And there were acts, and more acts-"My Lady's Hat", "Wanted: A Cook",
"Falling in Love With Plane Geomerty", "Polly's Birthday", "Knaves! Knaves!",
and "The Better Half's Worst Half", all wholly or partially accomplishing their
obvious purpose-to entertain. Miss Dorothy Ponsonby was present at the key-
board from time to time, and performed her especial duties there with the skill,
precision, and delightful ability which is hers.
Richard Rovelstad and Richard Dalbey as black-faced masters of ceremony
contributed generously to the superiority of this year's Comedy Concert, adding a
continuity and zip to the performance. The pair worked continuously with a gal-
lant determination to create laughter out of everything and anything, had the audi-
ence with them en masse, and scored constantly.
And the Mirror Board saw fit to award, basing their decision on "artistic set-
ting and general contribution to the program as a whole," first place to "A Day
in Spain". Honorable mention was given to "The Court of Common Clay", "The
Svhost ilnl She Boarding School", "Kiss Me Again, Kachoo!", and "The Better Half's

With some three months of intensive work and study the E. H. S. Interschol-
astic Debating Team gave Elgin its most successful season in several years. In-
formation on the subject, Resolved: That the present jury system should be abol-
ished, was abundant, and beginning immediately after the try out, and with the
invaluable assistance of V. A. Utzinger, coach, the team did steady work. E1gin's
superiority over Sterling Mortonieasily told in the debate with that school on Feb-
ruary 17, which Elgin won, 6-O. However, the time-honored battle with Rockford
on March 23 was seized by the "Rabs" with a 5-1 vote indicative of greater debat-
ing experience. On March 29, the affirmative met West Aurora in the consolation
tourneyg here a completely unexpected attack coupled with extreme simplicity played
havoc with Elgin, resulting in a 2-1 decision for Aurora. However, the negative,
the next evening, despite their handicap in the loss of Ray Price and the substitu-
tion of Emerson Crocker, recompensed by defeating Freeport, 3-0, giving Elgin
the consolation tourney.
The affirmative team was composed of Henry Buehler, Marion Dakin, and Em-
erson Crocker, captain. The negative was composed of Ray Price, Edwin King, and
Kenneth Yourd, captain. Evelyn Clinch successfully filled the office of student
One may say without hesitation that debate played a real part in school activ-
ity this year, audiences numbering 500 testifying as to this. Inter-team debates
were held before the Exchange, Kiwanis, and Rotary Clubs, stimulating community
interest. This year's success has established a firm foundation on which to build
next year's team.

The school dances have been only one of the several successful enterprises
undertaken during the year by the Student Council in the interest of the Student
body. The Christmas dance was of course the biggest dance of the year. Good
music a large crowd balloons ard favors of cardy dolls gave reasons for a peppy
Although the eight-period day plan was instituted in January there was no
visible effect upon the attendances at the monthly dances, for they seemed as large
as ever. The Council has provided our students with many a merry afternoon.
FOOTBALL "E" MEN'S BANQUET
A very important event of the school year is the annual "E" Men's Banquet.
This year it was held on November 29 in the drawing room of the High School.
The excellent dinner and the attractive decorations aroused hearty praise for Miss
Roe and the girls of the domestic science classes who had prepared the banquet.
Mr. Larsen served as toastmaster. Interesting talks were given by the coaches
and their assistants, several of the faculty and business men, and two or three
members of the teams.
The principal focus of interest, perhaps, was upon the customary election at
the banquet of the heavyweight captain for the following year. The boys chose
Clarence Oldham to lead them in 1928. Each one surely must have felt that it had
been a pleasant and worth-while evening.
CLUB PARTIES ,
The social, and not the more purposeful, phase of the various clubs in Elgin
High School is to be emphasized here. At least once a year each club has had a
large party, and in some of the club programs there have been parties much more
often. The clubs have successfully managed both social and business elements so
that at the close of the school year there are many good times as well as hard
work to be remembered. -

The proms' are always the most gala of the social events in high school life.
There is so much eagerness and anticipation! The Junior-Senior prom last year
was held June 3, on the evening' of class-day according to previous custom. The
gym was transformed into a veritable fairyland-the flood light playing upon the
decorations in pastel shades, fiowers, lattices, and a fountain placed in the center
of the iloor. The Bluebird orchestra furnished excellent music for the dancing,
and everything was quite ideal for a lovely party.
Held on the following Tuesday evening, June 7, the Senior prom was an equal
to the earlier prom. The same decorations were used, but Jinx Bryan's orchestra
provided the music for the occasion.

Commencement week was crowded with exciting events for the Seniors. It be-
gan with Class Day, the day in which the Seniors reign. The whole student body
assembled in the auditorium Friday morning, June 3, for the class day program.
At noon all Seniors had a jolly time at the breakfast held at the Methodist Church.
The Junior-Senior prom given in the evening has been mentioned.
On Sunday evening the Seniors met again at the Methodist Church for the
Baccalaureate sermon which was given by Rev. Gilbert Stansell. Tuesday meant
the Senior prom. Commencement week was closed on Friday evening, June 10
with graduation. The address was delivered by Dr. Frederick Shannon of Chicago,
and he brought a message to each Senior. Diplomas were received and the class
song was sung. No longer Seniors-but Alumni!

Elgin High, our love for you
Will be ever fresh and true
As we go to find our fate.
As the years go rolling by
Well recall then with a sigh
Memories of Elgin High
And the class of Twenty-eight.
THE CLASS OF TWENTY EIGHT
All your foes have been defied,
And for you we've ever tried
To win honor in the fray.
When, out in the world of men,
We Win fame, we hope that then
You will think of us again
As the class of red and gray.
Alma Mater, as we part,
We feel surging in our heart
The love We hold for you.
Leaving on our journey great,
Each to find his own estate,
We, the class of Twenty-eight,
Bid to all a fond adieu.
