Such a spirit carried that illustrious personage, Lind- bergh, on an epoch-making flight across the ocean. Prop- er application of that spirit will carry us across our l'oceans". In the hope that we may inspire a few more than would otherwise have had the courage to forge their way I S L, ahead, we, the Class of 1928, 5 f Ld respectfully dedicate this, the iff f Q eighteenth volume of the Ma- F X roon, to-may we call it- ? the Spirit of Lindbergh. 1 X' V- f"y' ,lf K I 0 . , . ll I Jr .: li K M ,-vi W in N I J V' T p -, bu A ca n is if i is ' N I A PWS M xi L 1 X X l ,F . life A V ,, Yi: ' - 3 Q W, ffm? 5 Ja Wg .

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 "Success" 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. POLLY GRAY, Secretary. 40 G. Adams, H. Ahrens, T. Ackemann, B. Anderson, O. Anderson, R.

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 outstanding. 7 7 I is not participating in as many school activities as previous classes have done. We 3 7 ! 7 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.

The good ship E. H. S. stopped its busy wheels lv.f"'if! ' V 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. MARELU E.

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. Hs? -3' " l HONOR MEDALS 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.

E X-Officio Besides those named above the Athletic Board of Control has as its members all of the coaches of interscholastic boys' athletics. It plays a very important part in the activities of the school since it determines schedules, determines policies to be followed by thc coaches, authorizes purchase of all equipment, determines who shall receive "E's", and encourages such sports as are not self-supporting. ll ll 59 ist! r' ll ,.f--,'-5Q OUR COACHES M.E.WILSON 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. C.E.ADAMS "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- E.F.RESEK Intramurals have been developed under the foresighted guidance of Resek to a high degree, and he is rapidly realizing his goal of athletics for every fellow in school. Since his arrival many improvements have been made. ball and track teams. C.J.ROGERS Rogers helped Wilson with the task of developing the heavyweight team, His first football coaching at Elgin High shows that he "knows his stuff." C.E.STEELE 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. Il ll 60 1 ,, 1 ! I 1 ' lk? - N:,L,fL-71 CAPTAIN ANDERSON "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. CAPTAIN-ELECTOLDHAM 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 '27, With several men back for the team next year and those coming up from the Ponies, Oldham should lead a team of marked ability. Clarence has our best 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. FLORA "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. 62 BLANCK 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 him. BEHRENS 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. Ki H y r H H v N ! STILLWELL "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. THIEL "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. I ll as '74 I A I' r ,' II ,.,,. V:Q: SCHEELE '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 REA "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 men. course in three years. 9 BENNORTH 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 year. BALLARD ' 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. Il ll 64 0 . y I Q ff:: r t' THOMPSON 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 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. HARDING 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. WERRBACH 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 this year.

There were many new men out for the squad this year, and they gave the veterans keen competition for positions on the team. 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 second of play, three games were brought to an end with tie scores. 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. 66 LIGHTVVEIGHT FOOTBALL BIG SEVEN CONFERENCE STANDINGS W L T ' Pct.

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.

"Hermie" is one of the headiest players that has ever worn the Maroon and Cream. Through his untiring eiforts he has aided greatly in the develop- ment of this team. He was elected cap- tain of next year's team also, an honor that has never fallen upon another indi- vidual. We may expect big things from will continue to strive to uphold the honor of Elgin High. HARDING The sensation of the conference is Wyatt Harding. Wyatt proved to be one who has a very keen eye for the basket not only close at hand but even at a distance. He held the crowd breathless many times, and usually they were not disappointed in the outcome. Wyatt was also placed on the all-conference and tournament teams. We wishhim lots of success next year. him next year, and we are sure "Hermie" 7 STILLWELL "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 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- ways on deck with some of his clever play- ing. With two more years of competition "Tommy" should develop into all-confer- ence material. i ll '0 , i ASHMAN Burt came up from the Ponies this year to assume a position with the heavies. Speed and heady playing helped Burt break into many of the games this year. He is another sophomore and with two more years to wear the Maroon and Cream GIICQ. KOSCHNICK At the end of the first semester when Jones and Flora were lost Koschnick came to the front. He soon proved to be a very able player and always had a hand in win- ning the game. Koschnick was near the top of the list for points. He will be back next year and we shall expect big things from him. should become a sensation of the Confer- FLORA "Shrimp" has played with the Maroon and Cream teams for four years. During this time he has shown that he has plenty of real fight in him and has displayed a fine brand of basketball. "Shrimp" was a nine-semester man this year, and in the last game of his career at Elgin High he had a little tough luck and broke his wrist. JONES "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.

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- ful season, and we sincerely hope that Coach Adams and his men will live up to these expectations.

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. 7 3 CKAQSTEN .LCLINTSMAN QLEACH - CAUT.

QM- ' TRACK 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 May 12 .... ......,,...

A N.- we INTRAMURAL 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 played regularly. 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. 78 :11 -..ff pl Qt '--. mm: ll " Il II N 9 Y 4 Y ,av W - g "Nm f ll 'Q ll fi Il ql so ls ,,...p. ,.,L,.....:, ,. , ., J.. . GEMS Athletics l w P C O A C H E S , 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. LOUISE WOOD 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. l sz .Z' ' MX' 1 -.:.,11.1-1 4 gf' QNX- ZV1 fx HOCKEY 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- son.

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- nie Schlie.

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 f-f- 87 . 2-' II " Q X f ,.--f' ?f- Olrqaumnzmhewns f If 1 , -X Q- A1512 1- :"' I-SEL J ,Nj o ' , N , ,5 -wr-N , i h 'Ni --X f' Lf'-" in Q - VX A ,N aw, fwvfzx f W -- -Q..-XX' CIM 1 Fax if mf pf my ! --5-X-1, 'ff- N 1 -V '-m,wxliM'fm! .1 ,,,- l a i THE STUDENT COUNCIL Charles Landwere .....,,,......,,, President Fletcher Lamphere ..... ..,.7....

Sponsor 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 Council. I I 1 l ' 8 9 - 4.1 ' N ' , i' .-I ' Y . ,,,,,,, . "":"': S -M 9 0 , '- .. im ff , .

The meetings are held at the-homes of various members the first Thursday of each month. At the regular meetings a study of the geography of Rome was made. 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- ary a progressive dinner was held at the homes of the following girls: Henrietta Wolff, Emma Grimm, Clara Egoroif, and Marion Webb. At the end of the year there was a picnic at Crystal Lake which proved a success.

Sponsor 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. 91 ,iqaunoauaimlfssl -li F, 92 .4 , ':" Q -'-b 'Q 'Z' Y ,fl LOS ESTAMIDOS Charles Landwere ..... ....,,,,,....

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.

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.

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.

The Comedy Concert, which is annually sponsored by the Mirror, was an unus- ual success-unusual, because in recent years the interest in this event has waned, and the old spirit was revived in the excellent stunts presented this spring. A spe- cial supplement of the Elgin Courier News was entirely edited and written by the Journalism Students of E. H. S. This edition Was accorded great praise by the critics and was Well appreciated by the people of Elgin, who were shown by it the achievements and progress of the Journalism Classes.

Being new at the work we must needs call on outside help, and I take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation to Mr. Dudley Higginson of the Pontiac Electrotype and Engraving Company, Miss Abell, and Miss Cleary and her salesmanship class. Last year the position of Junior Representative was instituted on the staff with the idea of developing him into editor or business manager for the following year. This year the same plan was carried out, John Hennessey being chosen. Through the recommendation of the present staff the Art Editor Nancy Fedou, was chosen for next year to formulate art plans during thesummer. EARL W.

The business men of the city also showed they were behind us by ordering far more books than we had anticipated, and so, I also wish to thank and commend them. We have tried to keep our budget down as low as possible, and still compile a book worthy of the class of '28, Only through the willing cooperation and readiness to work shown by the stai have we been able to do this. JACK M. BYRNE, Business Manager It has been a pleasure to work with the staff of the 1928 Maroon. The mem- bers have worked earnestly and untiringly, using much of their out-of-school time in order to put out the very best Maroon. They have cooperated in every way, with fine spirit.

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.

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.

L Y ' :J F it '4 I ' COMEDY CONCERT 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 thirteenth. "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 orst af'. , 124 3 ,,..': in AA...3,, :few .,,f DEBATING 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 manager. 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. 125 V 1 f N' A ,V ' 5 s , ,,.-:-:- SCHOOL DANCES 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 party. 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 W I , 6' 9+ l L been a pleasant and worth-while evening. T46 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. - 6 - Svc Wx- Q3 PROMS-'27 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. , 126 l V . kg.,.,,.. . 6' ' COMMENCEMENT COMMITTEES-'28 , q " . I 'Q 5"is 1' I COMMENCEMENT--'27 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.
