Q L FOFGWOFA In this, the nineteenth edition of the Maroon, the staff has tried to publish a book which will live up to the high ideals of the class. We have introduced some new features in this book including a new col or and design for the cover to carry out the fairy castle theme which the art designs follow If this book proves to be a source of pleasant memories in years to come the staff feels that all its efforts will have been re warded 1 r is ' w , Q lg , W , I l , y gl J Qi?

As freshmen the class as a whole was particularly interested in athletics. The most important event was the "copping" of the girls inter-class basketball cham- pionship during both their first and second years. The fellows, too, did their bit. Ten athletes received E's for participation in major sports. Half of their race over, the class of '29 became Juniors. Who would lead them in their work? After much "scouting around" Fred Salisbury was elected president, Charles Karsten, vice-president, and Margaret Gray, secretary. Their first problem was solved by choosing Scarlet and Black for class colors. In class sweaters something new was started by having four letters instead of the usual two. The unusual success of the Junior Class Play, "Peg O' My Heart" by J. Hart- ley Manners, plus a series of doughnut sales gave the treasury that Mschool girl com- plexion", preparing them for the final lap of their four year race. Without any campaigning necessary Glen Miller was unanimously elected presi- dent to lead the "twenty ninersi' in their final spurt. Kenneth Ettner was chosen vice- president, and Ada Marie Rovelstad, secretary. 'fDulcy", a comedy of errors by George Kaufman and Marc Connelly, was decidedly well put-over and incidently swelled the treasury. Besides being proud of having Clarence Oldham, a senior, captain of the Big 7 Championship heavyweight football team, the girls also did their part along this line by winning the inter-class basketball championship. This they have done ever since they have been in high school, a feat which has never been done by any pre- vious class. Also the Sales Committee has the "rep" of having made the most money ever made by a committee of this kind in a single season. Fred Salisbury was presi- dent of the Student Council, while Eva Johnson and Joe Slavik represented the class on the Council. I-, Now the race is over, and we each go out to win our own race, individually, ocqasionally glancing back to see new people going by places we should like to pass again.

Since they have shown their capability in various ways since they entered as freshmen in 1926, a body of three-hundred-fifteen, this prediction seems correct. As freshmen, they were as outstanding as any freshmen class, though the year was quite uneventful. Their Student Council representatives were Jean Witheral and Burt Ashman. Many of the members were already becoming active in athletics. When 1927 rolled around, it showed a great deal of activity taking place. Burt Ashman was again chosen on the Student Council along with Herman Walser, who was also chosen basketball captain for two consecutive seasons, '28 and '29, Burt Ashman, Thomas Keane, Wyatt Harding, and Cedric Greenawalt were also promi- nent in athletic line-ups. The girls were not idle all this time either, for many of the best girl athletes come from the ranks of the class of '30, With this past to live up to, the pace for the Junior year was set. It began with a Hash by electing Thomas Keane President, Phil Symmons Vice-President, and Phyllis Schneff Secretary. Willard Wellnitz and Glenn Bohl were chosen representa- tives for the Student Council. A stroke of originality was shown by selecting as class colors midnight blue and orange. The fact that the basketball team was made up almost completely of Juniors-Walser, Harding, Keane, and Ashman-was a thing of which the class was justly proud. ' How to make money was a problem which faced our class just as it has other junior class. It was solved by the great success of the doughnut sales. every The class play, "The Importance of Being Earnest," by Oscar Wilde, showed more talent in the class, and also increased the treasury. It was given on May ninth and tenth to packed houses, showing that it was a big hit. 1 June first brought around the Junior Prom which was an event made outstand- , 1 xingfpby the good work of the Prom committees. May our Senior year be as remarkable as our three preceding years. PHYLLIS SCI-INEFF '30 --fffx 4 4 1 X- -. . N .. 2 A. Adams, A. Adams, G. Althen, B. Anderson, B. Anderson, E. Andrescn, W.

One-half year later, one-hundred-ninety-three more sophomores joined ranks with the class of "31", bringing the total up to three-hundred-thirty-five. The members of the class of "31" cooperated very well in all that they under- took. They responded heartily to all the propositions of the school and backed faith- fully all school enterprises. The class began the year right by electing Robert Romeis and Donald Butler as representatives in the Student Council, and under their leadership it prospered and grew. In track Donald Austin earned his letter and was elected captain of the squad for next year. During the football season four men earned their letters and the sec- ond and third teams were composed mainly of sophomores. In basketball Paul Born earned his letter, and both "B" team captains were sophomores. Enough for the boys. The girls of the sophomore class likewise have displayed great enthusiasm in sports, winning the volleyball, baseball, horseshoe, and tennis championships. Also three out of the six best all-around girls were sophomores, and two others took first and second places respectively in the "Perfect Posture Contest." For scholastic ability they claim Arvid Frautnick, Donald Butler, and Marelu Moore as honor students for the year 1927-1928, and the class offers a good percent- age on the honor roll each month. A sophomore member of the debating team for 1928-1929 was Alice Crocker who aided the team in securing second place in the "Big Sevenf' All in all the class of "31" is very promising, and looks as though it will attain great heights in the remaining two years.

In September, 1928, two-hundred-sev- enty-four more students came in to begin their high school career. Soon these freshmen ceased to regard the High School as an immense place in which to get lost, and settled down to work with vim and vigor. Both boys and girls responded to the call of sports, and all did very well. They backed willingly and eagerly all school projects, and have always headed the Honor Roll. To do that once is an unusual success for Freshmen, but this class has consist- ently been at the top ever since they entered High School. Howard Schultz and Donald Salisbury were chosen to represent the class on the Student Council. In January, 1929, one-hundred-thirty-nine new Freshmen were added. Near the end of the first semester a new project, called the Junior Republic, was begun for the Freshmen girls. The girls were divided into two parties, called the Lib- crals and the Progressives. Each party elected candidates for president and vice- president. In the final election the Progressive Party won out. Jane Moore was elected President and Laura Jane O'Connell, Vice-President. Many of the freshman home rooms are organized groups, having student officers. This aids greatly in preserving order in home room and in home room discussions. Everyone interested in this large class is hoping that it may continue to do ex- cellent work and that it may realize that the objective of all good schooling is the making of useful, noble citizens who have service as their goal. 0 JoY scHULTz '32 3 w l f, Q L Kixnjx i ill A J i J x, fa..

V X,-t,,i . f' ,Y S, Q up ' ' if ,ag SCHOLARSHIP ij, We come to Elgin High to learn, but there are many extra-curricular activities connected with our high school life, for which recognition is given. The one thing that has not until recent years received such recognition is the matt-er of scholarship. In Elgin High we have an honor roll system. All students whose grades in each of their four subjects average ninety or above for the month are placed on this honor roll. Those who have received a grade of ninety or more in each of their subjects for one semester are placed on the semester honor roll. No material award was given for such scholastic achievement until a few years ago when the Rotary Club felt the need of rewarding the students who ranked high scholastically. For the past four years that organization has presented an Honor Medal to all students who have been on the honor roll for one year. This presentation takes place in a special auditorium program. Each year a larger number of students receive this medal. The list on the follow- ing page gives the names of those who received the award this year. . HONOR MEDALS Each year an Honor Medal is presented by the Class of 1922 to the most repre- sentative senior boy and girl. Eligibility for the award is based on scholarship, leader- ship, and athletic ability. Last year Margaret Nelson and Steve Scheele received the awards.

The one thing that has not until recent years received such recognition is the matter of scholarship. In Elgin High we have an honor roll system. All students whose grades in each of their four subjects average ninety or above for the month are placed on this honor roll. Those who have received a grade of ninety or more in each of their subjects for one semester ar-e placed on the semester honor roll. No material award was given for such scholastic achievement until a few years ago when the Rotary Club felt the need of rewarding the students who ranked high scholastically. For the past four years that organization has presented an Honor Medal to all students who have been on the honor roll for one year. This presentation takes place in a special auditorium program. Each year a larger number of students receive this medal. The list on the follow- ing page gives the names of those who received the award this year. , HONOR MEDALS Each year an Honor Medal is presented by the Class of 1922 to the most repre- sentative senior boy and girl. Eligibility for the award is based on scholarship, leader- ship, and athletic ability. Last year Margaret Nelson and Steve Scheele received the awards.

They do not I consider a season a succes simply because they win most of their games, but they pb take in sportsmanship, clean play, and all that goes with it. nf l 9 A, f . MR WILMSON A fl' Mr. Wilson, the athletic director of the school and the heavyweight football coach ' 5' for the last six years, has developed teams that have lost only seven conference J games in six y-ears. Thus it can be said that we have a coach who has a real record. J.. o He is a good sportsman himself and well lik-ed by all the students. I ,. . r l . .J , MR. ADAMS l 2-'N L Mr. Adams, affectionately known as "Cliff", has been with us for five years. For dw -9 5 the last two years he has been coaching lightweight football, and during that time 1 gg .O they have not lost a game and have only been scored on twice. besides winning the 10 IJQ 'fBig 7" twice. He is a true leader of boys and a good example of what a man l W g should really be. C ll C ' MR. ROGERS ffl O Mr. Rogers has been assisting Mr. Wilson in developing the heavies for the last 5 five years. He should be given a great deal of credit. l 4 I j, l R MR. KRAFFT 'vw ' 1 Mr. Krafft, a newcomer to this school, has won his way into the hearts of the students. He assisted Mr. Adams with the lights and did a real job. 2 .if ,PCJX MR. RESEK ,f fx ,ll kMr. Fred E. Resek, for the last two years the intra-mural leader of the school, . X . , S 1 if does- much work with boys who are not on the inter-scholastic teams.

This is the first time in the history Aof the "Big 7" that the teams have won both championships. This is a real accomplishment, and too much credit can not be given to Coach Wilson and his boys. This remarkable team lost the 'first game of the season to Carl Schurz of Chicago, 16-0. The loss was due to the fact that neither of the two Elgin centers that played had ever before played that position. The Elgin team was not disheartened by this act of fate, but merely fought all the harder and did not lose another game. The team was composed of a group of boys who knew that the secret of success was cooperation. This they did to the utmost, and with plenty of football knowledge they proceeded "to do their stuff." Only three Elgin boys, namely Capt. Oldham, Walser, and Blanck, were named on the first all-con- ference team. This was proof that the boys really did cooperate, because no individual stars were produced. Many of the boys will be back next year, and we are looking forward to another successful season. Again we wish to thank Mr. Wilson and his staff for their untiring efforts. Clarence was what you might call an ideal cap- ,f tain. He refused to get excited, or rather to show his excitement, no matter how close the game might be. He was a good leader and inspired his fellow players. Because of the lack of end material he played end, but in the Rockford game he was shifted to tackle and there showed to good advantage. This was Clarence's last year and his position as an all-conference end will be a hard one to fill. ,f-- X . xx G6 o A li ,V-4.6, 1 kg .--,.fi.,i.. ...f-...Q ..., 'frf ' f '-'-"c'fcC'S' "T'Q:,CQ 'Cpu-'qs ' Q -'W fe' f r- . ,JJ f 1 K s x' l. ,ky LIGHTWEIGHT SEASON Won Lost Tied Pct. 6 0 ELGIN ,,,,,, 1000 Joliet ,,,,A.,,,,,,, ,,,,, 4 666 E.

Winning the "Big 7" con- ference was in itself an accomplishment, but this was not enough for these lads, and so they played a post-season game with Oak Park and again came out on top. This exceptional team scored 211 points to their opponents' 7. In the conference season they scored 155 points to their opponents' nothing. The team itself was made up of a group of boys who had played together for at least a year. Most all the regulars this year were subs last year. There wer-e no individual stars on this lightweight team, but if anyone deserves the credit, it is Ralph "Andy" Anderson. It was often said by the scribes of the various "Big 7" papers that this lad was one of the best backs seen in the conference in many years. He was a tower of Q , strength on both offense and defense. Along with him on the first all-conference were Rovelstad, Henryson, LJ., oi 1 f K f bl 7 C , ' TN 'dj K, , , , C U ,Q ,CT C AP of lk li A ilA:f el S33 Kr-ill' J Q6 l 5 Killa' .l Keane, and Holth. The first three mentioned were lg K linemen, while the last one was a backfield man. Too ti much can not be said about any of these men. Q The honor of captaining this team went to Burt Ashman, quarter-back. He was a heady field general and an unselfish leader, just the type that makes an x 5 ideal captain. Thus another chapter of E. H. S. football N 4 history has been written, and it has been a very suc- fl! ' ' cessful one.

He was the mainstay of the line, both on offense and defense. It must be remembered that h-e played through the season with internal injuries, thus making his work more difficult. It was his last year with the Maroon and Cream, and his loss will be keenly felt next year. HALIGAS After a year's lay-off from football "Sherm" came out for the heavies and won a regular position as guard. Although not noticed by the fans as a star, he was an important cog in the machinery. "Sherm" was especial- ly valuable for his ability to run inter- ference and his wonderful spirit. This was "Sherm's" first heavyweight "E", He has played his last game of foot- ball for old E. H. S. and will be missed next year. CAPTAIN-ELECT WALSER "Hermie" was one of our three all-conference selections, and he sure- ly deserved the title of all-conference quarterback. He could do anything asked of him and do it well. He starr- ed in every game and was named on several all-state teams. We wish him the best of luck in carrying on next year. SLAVIK This was "Joe's" first experience with the heavies, but this did not dim his spirits any, and although handi- capped by injuries, he played as a regular guard when possible and re- ceived his letter. He was one of the smallest men in the conferenceg therefore he should be given a great deal of credit. He was an excellent blocker and cooperated well with his fellow men. His position will be a hard one to fill. Q' feb viii- L " KJ L LEACH Although eligible for the light- weights Carver determined to come out for heavyweights and became a regular half-back. He was used to run the ends and was especially good at running interference. He starred in the West Aurora game when he broke the line and ran 40 yards for a touch- down. This was his last year to play under the Maroon and Cream. KOCH Bob" graduated from the rank of sub-center last year to that of regular center this year. He met with many injuries, but always came back for more. Although hurt pretty badly in the DeKalb game, he finished the sea- son. In the Rockford game he played like a demon and broke through many times to throw the Rockford backfield men for huge losses. He will be back next year and will be all-conference material. KK STEVENS "Red" was another boy who grad- uated from the rank of sub to that of a regularg only his position was that of a guard. He too was handi- capped all season by injuries, but this did not stop him from playing. His work was of the consistent type, and he could always be depended on to give his best. "Red" graduates this year. STILWELL "Ernie" was shifted from his form- er position of center to that of full- back. He was one of our leading scorers and could always be depended on when a yard or two was needed. In the Rockford game, which was played on a muddy field and during a downpour of rain, he kicked a place kick which traveled at least 40 yards. This was his last year, and he will be missed.

He was used to run interference and was a deadly tackler. During the Rockford game he sprained his ankle and was out for the rest of the season. He will be back next year and have a good chance to be an all-conference half- back. GREENAWALT Cedric graduated from the light- weights and played a regular position as guard. Although handicapped by being small, he was always giving his best, Probably he played his best in the West Aurora game when he inter- cepted several passes. He teamed up with Slavick to run interference for the backfield men. He has another year. HARDING Wyatt, a sub from last year, be- came a regular end this year. He was handicapped all season by a bum ankle, but played in practically every game. He starred in the East Aurora game when he nabbed several passes besides playing a good defensive game. He has another year and has a good chance to be an all-conference end. HARPER This was Gordon's second year as a member of the squad, and although he did not play as a regular, he was al- ways ready to go in and give his best. He was given a chance in the Rockford game, and he played a fine game. When the call for live men is given next year, he will be absent, be- ing among those who have graduated. " Cf --,Q-at '61, igjsxi 12.15 co' A BORN Paul graduated from the light- weight squad last year to that of a heavyweight "E" man this year. Al- thought he was not a regular end, he was used at a time when he showed to good advantage. As he has two more years of football, he can look forward to a bright future. BOOTHBY "Red" is another of the boys who grew up "over night" and joined the ranks of the heavyweights. It was often said by the various members of the team that "Red" was the hardest line plunger on the team. He was a substitute half-back until Symmonds was hurt in the Rockford game. He was then given his chance and came through in fine fashion. This was "Red's" last year of football. BALLARD Bob", a regular from last year, was handicapped all season by a "charleyhorse", and thus he was not able to do much playing. However, he was always ready to go in when needed, and his "trusty toe" could al- ways be depended on. This was his last year of football, and we wish him the best of luck in college. ll 6 o P H ."'

In this schedule, the team won every game. The conference proved to be the stumbling block. DeKalb came to Elgin with the determination to win, and, aided by breaks of the game, they did eke out a 16 to 15 victory. The team, however, fin- ished the conference in third place. Captain "Hermie" Walser's Maroon Clads next entered the Dundee tournament where they exper- ienced little opposition in reaching the finals, but here again the boys bumped into hard luck. A bas- ket in the last few seconds of play gave Dundee the verdict. Coach Adams has placed a good deal of faith in his team and the boys have responded with the best of their ability. The entire team has been intact for several years. The fact that "Hermie" was elected captain for two successive years, an honor that has never been awarded any other individual in E. H. S., speaks for his ability. His heady playing and the cooln-ess and deliberation with which he acts is confidence-inspiiw ing, this and his ability to command the respect of his fellow players have been a big factor in the team's success. "Hermie" was selected for a guard position on the all conference team. 76 -,.,.,. ,,-.. . ,f ,.,..., ,, 1' A X N l LIGHTWEIGHT SEASGN W L t ELGIN . Joliet . ,,,v, . Freeport ,,,,,, W.

Led by the Co-Captains, "Pete" and "Andy", QKars- ten and Andersonb, the ponies brought back to E. H. S. her first lightweight Big Seven Championship. After playing a few pre-conference games, ar- ranged to put the team in top-notch form, the Mar- oons entered the conference, where they were vic- torious in all of the games but one, that being with Joliet on the latter's floor. In the middle of the season the team was handi- capped by the departure of Leach, who became in- eligible by the ninth semester rulingg his position was quickly filled by 'tRay" Smith, a sophomore who soon proved that he was a real basketball player. The team was further strengthened by "Phil'l Sym- monds, a newcomer from Gary. Because of their ability and great personalities and the fact that they are boyhood chums, it was very fitting that "Pete" and "Andy" should captain the team together, and they soon proved they couldx do this very nicely. Much credit for the team's suc- cess is due these boys who instilled such a fine spiny in the team and so quickly won their respect. "11j'fete" and "Andy" won positions on the all-confe ence first and second teams respectively. 2 'VI 'A' I ' 'NX U f l . f , V 1.-....-..-Q, Q, .4-.-.v-Y, U , A5 Q iz O t 'N' C fx 'uv' C It QD CL-.I We 5 Q- J tj XJ 9 CD 3 -Ja X 5 J.

S. uni- form, he is quick to sense and take advantage of any breaks of the game, or napping on the part of the oppos- ing team. Keane wasn't a long-shot artist, but, however heavily guarded, he could be depend-ed upon to get through for a short shot. SLAVICK "Joe" undoubtedly ranks among the best guards in the conference. His unselfish spirit and conscientious ef- fort to give the best of his ability to the team makes him the type of ath- lete E. H. S. strives to develop. In the four years of his participation in E. H. S. athletics, which ended at the close of basketball season, "Joe" has built up a fine record. He has played the game true blue. HARDING Harding, through his sensational basket shooting from all points of the floor, was a marked man. "Stop Hard- ing", was the cry of Big Seven coach- es, and a very capable man was usual- ly assigned to this task. Harding is also an outstanding dribbler, and be- cause of his catlike swiftness no one could take the ball away from him. The Maroon and Cream will lose a great player when Wyatt becomes in- eligible next year. BORN As a substitute on last year's team Paul received some very valuable ex- perience, and this year when Stil- Well became ineligible, he was ready to fill the bill at center. He was high- point man in several of the games and, on the whole, made a very impressive showing. Paul has two big years ahead of him, and we are sure he will keep up his good record. xA.! rg, N .

His great spirit coupled with the fine brand of basketball which he displayed made him a valuable asset to the team. He also played several games with the B team, where he starred. Frank became ineligible at the close of the season. STILWELL The Maroon and Cream felt keenly the loss of "Ernie'l, due to the nine semester ruling. Stilwell's ability to make baskets when they were most needed bolstered up the team spirit, while his height and smooth Hoor work made him triple threat. We feel cer- tain "Ernie" will go on to bigger things and are proud to have him be representative of the type of athletes E. H. S. turns out. ASHMAN Clever, speedy, and shiftyg these three qualities combine in Burt to make him one of the most valuable players on the Maroon and Cream team. He is very hard to guardg he plays equally well at guard or for- ward, and has a good eye for the bas- ket. Burt injured his leg in the St. Charles game, which kept him from playing in the next game with Wau- kegan. If Burt had all of next year left, he would develop into all-con- ference material. BOOTHBY Bringing with him a never-die spirit and one year's experience gained through playing on the light- weight squad, "Red" came over to assume a position with the heavy- weights this year. A badly sprained ankle kept him out of several of the games, but in those he played he ac- counted for his presence. 79 ,f ,- pf ff N if 3'-'D C e,zk Qt 1 ., "HX LJ G 'i U Cf Q 2 f K W C!

H. S., Elgin High School B teams were formed. These teams were composed of players who showed ability, but failed to make the first teams. The major team had Mr. Kraft as a coach, while Mr. Rogers coached the lightweight. Both of these men are excellent coaches. The performance of the B teams and the promising players which the teams devleloped for next year's high school teams show clearly the value of such a p an. 81 A ,.,...,- 'N x .1 X 1.1 x!

Q INTRAMURAL Basketball has aroused the largest interest in intramural sports. About twenty- four teams have played regularly throughout the winterg any intramural players showing unusual ability were transferred to the B teams, and then, if they merited it, to the regular teams. Inter-class skating has proved popular, and several meets were conducted for boys and girls at Lord's Park. The Seniors trounced the Juniors while the Freshman won from the Sophomores. Horseshoe pitching attracts many fellows in the fall of the year, and a great deal of rivalry has been worked up in this sport. Inter-class baseball ranks among the first in intramural sports. "Hank" Trent- lage, ardent baseball enthusiast, has worked up a good deal of interest and is trying to develop hard ball a well as several indoor teams. Forward pass football has fulfilled the need of a sport for fellows who like the game of football, but for various reasons can not try out for the team, or can't make the regular squad. Mr. Resek has given a great deal of his time to this branch of ahtletics and he is fast realizing his ambition-athletics for every boy in high school. O 3 J 0 TENNIS M5 Each year tennis in E. H. S. is becoming more and more popular. This year for U the first time E's were awarded. Charles Stahl and John Biederman, who comprised 'ella the first doubles team, were the winners of E's, while an E was also awarded to ' H James Mansfield, first single player. H? W 3 In Mr. Resek the boys have a coach who is hard to beat and it is due to his l N' .3 great interest that the team was of the high caliber it was. X O A concrete court which the D. C. Cook Company has opened to the team has also helped the boys to get in shape for the Big Seven tournament. Always before the 1' team has waited until the latter part of April before they could practice, but due to ' I this courtesy the squad has begun practice as early as February. 1 Robert Schutz has been elected captain of this y-ear's team, and with him as a leader and the host of material on hand all things point for a Big Seven Championship. l ft!

H. S. "Gene" Nelson was the winner of the State Championship as well as the school tournament, in which 'tJimmie" Rasmussen and "Bud" Hawkins gave him some stiff competition. Mr. Resek has been conducting spring and fall tournaments, and these have become very popular. An interscholastic golf schedule is under consideration, and it is quite probable that such a program will be arranged. Although at the present time no awards are made to golfers, it is quite evident that it will soon be made a major sport. S7 XM.

Although she conducts gym classes all day, she is never too tired to Q . . . . . . f 3 .. supervise outslde activities after school. Much credit is due her for the splendid inter- Kj est shown and the number of girls participating in the various sports. l if In the last few years such a keen interest has been shown in girls sports that it f Enally became necessary to have an assistant director. The new teacher was Miss K, Van Vactor, who through her ever-present ch-eerfulness won the admiration of many Ji 4 girls. She conducted a most successful volleyball tournament and brought into the ,' 3 limelight a comparatively new sport for girls, bowling, which by the end of the season ls ,. H proved to be very popular. Miss Van Vactor should be complimented for her fine work. l Another new teacher in the girls sport division was Miss Weislander. She gave a , Q Q . - . Eu 'Q' great deal of her time after school to promoting interest in tennis, archery, and horse- 1 Q, shoe pitching. Through her influence a complete archery equipment was purchased, O and a great deal of enthusiasm was aroused for the sport. F The biggest girls athletic project for the school year was the furnishing of the ,Q new field house at Maroon Field. Under the leadership of Miss Logan the girls in the f past two years have earned enough money to put the necessary equipment in the house. c 4 1 l ' .1 it .

The Seniors "copped" this year's title and were certainly deserving of it, for even the Freshmen were unusually strong contenders for the title. Besides playing between halves at one of the football games, two teams, Red, captained by Frances Roche, and Blue, captained by Margaret Gray, were champions. The Reds won two out of three games, thereby winning the tournament and bringing the season to a close. The all school mythical team is as follows: M. Gray, M. Dakin, A. M. Rovelstad, M. Phillips, F. Roche, I. Nichol, V. Smoyer, C. Palmer, V. Rice, E. Pierson, R. Baker, R. Leivre. VGLLEYBALL Early in September the first call for volleyball came. A surprising respond resulted, as nearly one hundred girls signed up. Miss Van Vactor, the new volleyball coach, saw that with such a large number of girls it would be almost impossible to have an interclass tournament with four teams, so she had each gym class organize a team. Each class worked hard and developed a team with those qualities which are es- sential in the game, teamwork and alacrity. The teams were all well matched and played such a fine brand of volleyball that it seem-ed for a while that there would be no victors. As a result each team played a series of games with every other team until the old proverb, "The Survival of the Fittest", was the only solution. The fourth period team led by Marie Kowert finally managed to come through the struggle on top. The victory of this team can only be accounted for by the undying co- operation of the members and the splendid backing given th-em by the rest of the class. BASEBALL Early in March the girls baseball tournament got under way in the gym. In the first game the Seniors defeated the Juniors. The next game was played between the Sophomores and Freshmen, the Freshies being victorious. This left the Seniors and Freshmen to battle for championship honors. The upperclassmen won, after a very close game, and added another championship to their long list of honors. Although the underclassmen were defeated in their last game, they should receive some mention be- cause of the fine brand of ball displayed by them and their keen sportsmanship. The winning of the baseball tournament by the class of '29 meant that they had wiped three major championships besides many individual ones during their senior year. . Later on in the season, when weather permitted, more baseball was played on the nel! diamonds at Maroon Field. Gym class teams were organized and played against eachnother. Although no tournaments were held, much competition was involved, and many 'gg times were had on the outdoor diamonds.

Gym class teams were first organized to give the girls practice for the tourna- ments that were to follow. The second period junior and senior gym class, led by Lois Arnold, was victorious, mainly because of their previous experience. After this league was played off, the intramural teams were organized to give every girl a chance to prove herself worthy of a place on the inter-class teams. These club teams were all evenly matched, and much competition was involved. The Music Club team, captained by Isabella Nichol, won the intramural championship. At the close of this tournament Miss Logan picked several teams, dividing the outstanding players evenly on each team, thus giving no one team a decided advantage over the other. Keen competition resulted, but finally the team led by Frances Beverly won. Inter-class basketball was welcomed as it never was before. Nearly seventy-five girls reported for the first practice to make a bid for the possible twenty-four places on the four teams. In the first four games the Seniors downed the Freshmen and Sophomores, and the Juniors repeated what the Seniors had done. This l-eft the two upper classes to battle for the championship honors. The Juniors had as their captain Isabella Nichol, While the Seniors had three, one for each game. Lois Arnold captained the freshmen game, A. M. Rovelstad the sopho- more game, and Frances Roche the junior. The Class of '29, having won the inter-class L 1 KL, 1 pl Qlsg ef C nl 1 .51 1 1'1 L11 1. 1 1 M1 1 fl ., 1 Lllrdllxl' C If lx KL x. 1 l.

After her visit a complete archery equipment was purchased, and a tournament with Miss Wieslander as sponsor was held. At the end of this contest Marjori-e Mat- tocks, a sophomore, was declared champion. She not only held the highest score, but also the highest average. Later in the year another tournament was held, in which Vera Rice, a freshman, was victorious. At the end of the tennis tournament Elizabeth Brydges again was on top. This was "Betty's" second tennis championship, and as she is only a sophomore and has two more years, the rest of the girls will have to work hard to defeat her. A short but snappy golf tournament was held last fall. A. M. Rovelstad brought more honors to the class of '29 by winning this. Caroline Stickling, a sophomore, won the horseshoe pitching contest. Although this sport is not as popular as many of the sports in Elgin High School, it requires a great deal of accuracy, and Caroline should receive a great deal of credit. During the basketball season a basket-shooting contest was held to see who could make baskets from eight different positions on the fioor in the least number of shots. In the first contest Betty Sokody won. When the Inter-Scholastic contest was held Muriel Harper won. During the winter months two bowling tournaments were held at the Y. M. C. A. In the first one F. Roche hit the largest number of pins, and in the second L. Zierke won. . . . 4 ere-. ' 'F " 'ia l ICE SKATING CHAMPS Skating proved very popular this year. A skating meet was held on the lagoon at Lord's Park in January. The ones who participated in this proved to be the most out- standing athletes because their names were seen not only under the skating list, but also under many other sports. There were a great many events including dashes, relays, and a couple race. The KT Archery, a practically new sport in E. H. S., opened up last fall with a demonstra- O ..

"X , 1 The Student Council plays an important part in the school because it is the only C representative body that has a voice in the management or policies of the school. In L addition to sponsoring the high school dances each month, the Student Council this L year sponsored a series of four Lyceum programs sent out under the management of KI. some of the larger schools in this district. The programs have been unusually good, 1 and the student body has shown appreciation by a large attendance at each attraction. j The Student Council stands behind the organization for student government in the C ji halls and is the final appeal in cases arising under this system. A code of ethics for . better conduct at athletic games and contests was put before the student body by the f 2. Council. The new lqcker system which also has proved highly successful has been , introduced by this year's Council. C P ' I eat' 5' . .

Members of the club take part in plays, learn about the direction of plays, study the problems of lighting, and of make upg in other words, gain some technical knowledge which pertains to the presentation of plays. At their meetings club members also come in touch with important personalities of the stage through reportsg or they contribute of their own abilities and so develop poise, or in their dealing with others, a social grace. During the year 1928-1929 the Elgin High School Players presented "Joint Own- ers in Spain" in the high school auditorium, and sponsored t'The Zander-Gump Wed- ding." There were trips to Chicago to see "Dear Brutus" at the Goodman Theatre, and "Macbeth" at the Auditorium. At one time the club was invited to the Masonic Temple as guests of Mr. Rahn, to see "The First Year." In the spring the Players produced two one-act plays, "Finders Keepers" and "Miss Civilization", which were given along with a Mask and Bauble production in an auditorium program on April 3. In order to become a member of the club a student must be in his junior or senior year, and must try out before the sponsor and others chosen by the sponsor. 5 Y m, ' - -as 11 L Q-e-fi MASK AND BAUBLE Harriet Gillette President Betty Fedou Vice-President June Anderson Secretary Robert Reid Treasurer Misses Killough, Davidson, Eng-elbrecht Advisers The purpose of the A'Mask and Bauble" is to study and gain a greater appreciation of the drama. The members of this ,group are chosen through tryouts held at the be- ginning of the year. The meetings are held the third Monday of each month, when a most profitable and entertaining program is provided. The club was especially favored in being able to attend the "Merchant of Venice" presented by the dramatic club of the Academy, and A'The Patsy" given by the Beloit Players. Due to the courtesy of Mr. Rahn the group attend-ed "The First Year", a ' On Wednesday, April 3, a successful one-act play, HNot Quite Such a Goose", was given in the high school auditorium in connection with two other one-act plays given by the Elgin High School Players. 102 rev fdig-:"tA,13r sf' -'r-'cf r -ef-A, Cf M 9 K-, 3 1 - XJR F George Beith President NX-J 3 Lucille Larkin Vice-President 1 Virginia Turner Secretary , M Q John Biedermann Treasurer N3 Miss Vik Adviser The purpose of the Spanish Club is to further the knowledge of the customs, f' history, music, and commercial life of Spain and Spanish-speaking countries among is. 3 the students.

The purpose of its foundation was to help students in the advanced classes to a better understanding of the country whose language and literature they study in class. At present, membership is limited to those taking second year work. Beside the regular activities of French, music, moving-pictures, games, and con- versation, the Club this year pursued at each meeting a study of different provinces. of old France, its geography, history, people, and customs, a talk being given by a member in the costume of the province discussed. The annual banquet was held at which the toasts, songs, and conversation were all in French. A play, "Les Deux Sourds," was given at an open meeting, to which parents and friends were invited. 103 ,..,,,., -,.., 47, ,sh ,gg N J Wi' ll Q' A i wi f il 1 il li 1 i 5 J : i 1 li - li fi' LW wi if it 1 I- w . l Los Estamiclos Le Cercle Pranctgais 101 Senior Latin Ciu unior Latin Ciu 105 iD b ,kb C I!.,J'I M X--fi I L I I I A X 7 "X - Q A X I ' I I ix, , K-.XXX V f .1 .L Mx, 1 ' HQ i fi ' fri, SENIOR LATIN CLUB 2 KX ..

The club is a member of the Illinois League of High School Girls Athletic Associations. Last summer the G. A. C. sent eleven girls to the Girls Athletic Association Northern Camp at Bowen Country Club, Waukegan, Illinois. These girls, Katherine Byrne, Marion Dakin, Miriam Jane Muntz, Ada Marie Rovelstad, Frances Roche, Nancy Fedou, Betty Brydges, Madeline Zimmer, Minnie Schlie, Ruth Krum, together with Miss Logan and Miss Roe were very enthusiastic about th-e camp. In October the G. A. C. brought to Elgin Miss Jessie Akester, Women's Archery Champion, who gave an interesting demonstration. The visit of Miss Akester resulted in the club's purchasing archery supplies. In January the club sponsored the Girls and Boys Glee Club Concert. They are now furnishing the girls' new field house at Maroon Field. During the year there have been several successful parties. The hockey girls of the G. A.

All "E" men and boys who have been in athletics for at least one semester are eligible for membership. This has increased the number of participants in the dif- ferent inter-scholastic sports.

SN i ,E I C .C Ulf- ,.,Q THE GEOGRAPHY CLUB 9 Q Donald Shaw President Charles Shoemaker Vice-President Mona Crane Secretary-Treasurer Mr. Adams, Mr. Beckner Advisers The study of geography has become a very popular matter in Elgin High School in the last few years. One cannot study the earth without learning a great deal about the sun and other planets. In order to facilitate this phase of the study, the geography students organized the Geography Club and started out to raise enough money to buy a good telescope. By means of a public lecture, candy and doughnut sales, enough was raised, and the telescope bought. The Geography Club is very proud of this fine piece of work. Several "star parties" were held at various times. It proved a revelation to a good many to see that the stars were round instead of having five points, or to see the wonderful craters and mountains on the moon. Several other parties were held in which a good program was enjoyed and various games were played.

It is easy to explain to people that the blue Triangle within the Circle is the particular symbol of the Girl Reserve Movement, and that the three sides of the Triangle represent body, mind, and spirit. It is easy to explain that the Girl Reserve Code embodies those ideals of service and love and right living that help a girl make her life a lovely and worth-while one. It is easy to tell of the ,good times-of meetings and suppers and hikes, of summers at camp and winters in club worki Yet the deeper meaning of Girl Reserves is there, too. It is something more difficult to see. It is a bigger something, made up of all these things, surrounding and underlying them all. The meaning of Girl Reserves lies in this bigger thing, which takes root in a girl's heart and grows into what is called "the Girl Reserve Spirit", which makes her "look up and love and laugh and lift".

Th-ere are two troops, Troop No. I consisting of three patrols, Troop No. H of two patrols, each patrol electing patrol leader and corporal. Activities of the Girl Scouts center around health, home, and citizenship. In the past year they have gone camping, gone on hikes, worked for such badges as home- maker, health winner, craftsman, and first aid. They are planning on camp again for this summer.

S. are each year becoming better known to the community and have become a vital part of the school life. Not a little credit for bringing the music department' to the fore is due Miss Knudson, who came to Elgin in the autumn of 1926. The following year she took over the position of head of the music department. She and the other music instructors have labored unceasingly to improve the quality of the work of these organziations. Our glee clubs are fine examples of the improvement made by the various units of the music department. Th-ey have improved not so much in numbers, 'but in the quality of the Work. We also have second organizations in which special work is given in Voice training and interpretation. They prepare the students for the first organizations. The second band and orchestra serve the same purpose as the second glee clubs. As soon as a student is far enough advanced, he may enter the first organizations. The mixed chorus is for those who haven't the time to devote to work in the glee clubs. It meets one period a Week under the leadership of Miss Engelbrecht. A class in string instruments is conducted one afternoon each week by Miss Bar- low. This year there were twenty-one receiving this instruction. Mr. Connell gives personal help on reed instruments to students in the bands or orchestras. Last year Elgin High sent two of its orchestra members to the national high school orchestra camp. The honored two were Marjorie Ballard and Frederick Schurmeir. They made such a good record that the camp directors are looking foward to receiving several Elgin applicants this summer. The major music class, of which We are quite proud, studies harmony and the history and appreciation of music. The class offers a real opportunity for one to study music from these standpoints. Each May at St. Charles is held the Fox River Valley Music Festival. High school musicians from this part of the Fox Valley participate in this event. Mr. Connell, leader of the Elgin High boys glee club, directed the Illinois Valley Glee Club at this festival, and Miss Knudson directed the Illinois Valley Orchestra. The members of the high school bands from surrounding towns formed one huge band under the baton of Mr. H. H. Nigro of West Aurora. This May Festival is under the auspices of the Fox River Valley Public School Music Club, a club of the music teachers of the various high schools. Elgin has its own Music Festival every spring, when all musical organizations of the city, both grade and high school, participate in a varied program covering a period of two days. It is sponsored by the Public School System of this city. The festival last year was a decided success and showed the people of Elgin what our young musicians are capable of doing. Contests among musical organizations are primarily for the purpose of stimulat- ing interest in music. Another reason, closely connected with the first, is that they bring these organizations to their best musically. On April twelfth and thirteenth the Northern Illinois District Band Contest was held in Elgin at the Masonic Temple. Mr. Reese, director of "Elgin's Own", was chairman of this contest. Thirty-two bands were entered, and the competition was keen. While our own band did not win honors, two of its members, John Hennessey and Alfred Perkins, took fourth places in two of the solo contests.

This year the concert was sponsored by the Business and Professional if W Women's Club.

As a special project ' Q they orchestrated "The Last Rose of Summer" which was used as a concert selection. O Lf 'N This is the first orchestra in our High School to have attempted this.

This year they gave a Christmas program at the Larkin Children's Home. Both the club and the children enjoyed the aHair and hope that it may be repeated next year. To end this successful year the glee club sang at the local May Festival. CD i C, . I . and f A ., ..

Connell Director The Second Boys Glee Club opened the semester with an enrollment of twenty-five. Like other second organizations the object of the club is to act as a "feeder" to the first organizations. Boys with changed voices doing good work in class are promoted into the first glee as soon as they can pass a satisfactory test. The boys practice first period on Tuesday and Thursday, and are given one fourth of a credit for satisfactory work. The second boys glee is open to all boys interested in singing. Attention is given to voice placement, diction, and tone. Some four-part singing is attempted. The club is not expected to appear before the public as a group, but each memb-er is expected to be eligible for the first glee after one or two semest-er's Work. O K A: at 0 cf, 0?

Rehearsals are held every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon during seventh period and a quarter of a credit is given for satis- factory work. This group does not have the opportunity to appear in public except it in the local May Music Festival. As soon as a player can pass a satisfactory test, he is promoted into the First Orchestra provided there is an opening in the section in D which he plays. SJ Under Miss Barlow, instructor of stringed instrum-ents in the public schools, n , splendid class instruction is given to smaller groups of string players on Wednesday l s and Friday afternoons. This affords a fine opportunity for a string player greatly to Q, improve his ensemble playing. l D Although at first thought these activities are not considered as of much import- X ance, in reality they contribute in a very large measure to the success of the music 3 in Elgin High School by acting as "feeders" to the First Orchestra. 1 . ry 1, KJ 'N WN i 3 ' xy X ' , I f fu 4 r a W J, is V g f' i cf x fi , W, 'xi' lf, SECQNDBAND 4 2 . 9 . il..

THE MIRROR The aim of the Staff during the year 1928-29 has been to make the Mirror more rewsy and more interesting to the whole school. It was felt that there should be a place in the Mirror for more underclass news as Well as the doings of the upper- classmen. The Staff tried two experiments: one was the manner of getting subscriptions, and the other the annual entertainment for raising money. Instead of giving a stunt in the auditorium and asking the students to sign up there, the juniors and seniors were asked to subscribe voluntarily. The freshmen and sophomores subscriptions were taken in home rooms. It was hoped in this way to make the campaign more personal. "Fun-nite" was a departure from the form of entertainment called the Comedy Concert which was sponsored by the Mirror Board in former years. "Fun-nite" was new in Elgin High, but was very ably managed and advertised by Mr. Kersten, to whom great credit is due. At the annual convention of the Illinois State High School Press Association in November, 1928, to which the general manager and business manager were sent, the Elgin High School Mirror was awarded the Distinguished Rating Certificate. The special editions were the Christmas and Senior editions. Appreciation and praise should be given to Miss Emmie U. Ellis for her encourage- ment and hard work in backing and helping the Staff and her work as teacher of the ,classes in journalistic writing in training those who will form the future Mirror Staffs. s ,J I l 'x L N, 130 I 1 V C41 V E --, ,,M,,,,,- ,.,....,.7.. .,... ,c Y .3 .,--,--- --Y . ,.. ..,.. -.c.,a.1 i ffl, , N1 ' THE MAROON it The Senior Class publishes annually a book containing the events of the past year. This we call "The Maroon". The members of the staff have devoted much of their time outside of school hours to make the book novel as well as interesting. Much credit is duehMi:ss Newman, our able and patient adviser, and John Hennessey, our editor- 1n-c 16 . Since 1927 a junior representative has been chosen by the staif with the idea of developing him into an editor-in-chief. With the experience he has received, it is easier for him to face the problems and difficulties which arise in publishing an annual for the next year. Glenn Bohl has been chosen this year for the position, and we feel that he will be an able leader for next year's "Maroon", No book could be successful without cooperation. The various departments have helped the staf a great deal in this respect. Miss Cleary and her salesmanship class deserve much credit for their fine work in selling 'tMaroons" to the business men of our city, who also have responded in a fine manner. Miss Abell has given many fine suggestions for the artists to make the book attractive. Her aid is certainly appreciated. Many changes have been made this year. We hope you will not think them too radical, for our only wish is that the 'AMaroon" of 1929 will meet with your approval. , x C- C S t .Z . .ig W2 1 6 il si lil I .1 l -s. .ll 1 Ci tl t. ?, ,'i11!

The action takes place over the week-end in the home of Dulcinea and Gordon Smith. In order to promote her husband's business interests, Dulcy invites Gordon's employer, Mr. Forbes and family, a millionaire, Mr. Van Dyck, and Vincent Leach, a scenarist, for a visit. Dulcy hopes to have Angela Forbes and Vincent Leach elope, against Mr. Forbes liking. She also invites Leach to read one of his scenarios to the utter boredom of Forbes.

Then Dulcy proceeds to envolve ideas which very nearly bring destruction to her husband's business interests. However, everything is spoiled when it is found out Mr. Van Dyck only has an hallucination that he's a millionaire. Things turn out all right when it is found out that Bill has married Angela, and I Mr, Forbes is willing to take Gordon into business on a better merger than he had L hoped for. The cast realistically presented the play and gained the general good praise of the audience. Miss Marge Biersach deserves all of the credit for the stage direction. Mr. Kersten and a committee were responsible for the scenery and stage lighting effects. Miss Knudson and the orchestra furnished Hne music. 1 x SENIOR CLASS PLAY Friday Night Cast William Parker, her brother Dulcinea O M l Andrew McCarthy Lucille Larkin C.

Twelve members successfully passed the test. In the early part of December frequent meetings were held to discuss the Big Seven League debate question, "Resolved: That the present policy of the United States in Nicaragua should be discontinued." Soon after, under the able direction of Miss Myrna David- son, the squad began to read widely on that subject. On February first teams were selected from the squad membership. Alice Crocker, Robert Dwyer, and Ralph Fulmer were chosen to compose the affirmative team, Glenn Miller, Thomas Pierce, and Effie Cordogian were selected for the negative team. At first our teams debated one an- other on several occasions to gain more practice and confidence in themselves. Our Hrst interscholastic debate was held on February twenty-first. The affirmative team stayed at home and met DeKalbg the Elgin negative team traveled to DeKalb to debate the affirmative team there. Both of El,gin's teams were successful, each claiming a victory of 2 to 1. On February 28 Elgin's affirmative debated Rockford's negative at Rockford, and that same night West Aurora's affirmative met Elgin's negative here. The first contest resulted in a unanimous decision for Rockfordg the second contest, how- ever, gave Elgin the victory of 2 to 1. Elgin was very proud of its teams this year, for it was the first time in its history fthat Elgin was able to go so far in its contests, furthermore no member of the team had had any previous experience in debating. The latter fact plainly showed the re- markable ability of our teams under the experienced and capable supervision of Miss Daxfidson. The success of this year will also be a source of confidence for our teams cf next year. 138 'ww QF lisa, viik ""'i,,,fgy" g "-'-'A '-' ' 71' f-'V w Cf Q fl x KX X ., 1 P I ll X., U Socnety REL ,J PRoMs '23 The most looked-for social events of the year, the Proms, were a huge success last June.

Something dilferent was given this year in the way of a Christmas Dance. Miss Yingst was here to teach the proper positions while dancing. After this, balloons and merry-making devices were given out. The Council has tried hard to secure the best orchestras and provide the best possible time for all. Everyone is sure to join in giving them a hearty hand for the I success of one of the most important school activiti-es. ,fl 1 ET 1" 1 5 ii HOCKEY--FCCTBALL PARTIES Q S 3 if "To brag a little, to show up well, to crow gently if in luck, to pay up, to own 'f , A f up, and to shut up if beaten, are the virtues of a sporting man." This was the motto 'Z of the party helld by the Hockey girls for the Big 7 Maroon and Cream Football I Champs. The group as a whole was divid-ed into the four teams: Wildcats, captained by l 1 W" 4 C Oldhamg the Gophers, by B. Ashman' the Badgers, by H Walserg and the Wolver- 5.3, it ' 1 - Q 1' ' ines, by S. Rovelstad: An athletic meet took place, each captain sending in the re- ' :' ' quired number of persons for the different events. Each ev-ent, fifteen in all, included such numbers as plunging, holding, pep, passing, each one dedicated to the different football stars and coaches. "Bringing Home the Bacon", dedicated to th-e coaches, was of particular interest, after which came the 'tVictory March", and then to the I 4 O 'f"""Q' vii, 'CJ' cfrf 'A fc" ' ' T at ,J fc , K HOCKEY-FOOTBALL PARTIES Continued "Training Table" where those delicasies of which the fellows were deprived during training were heaped on. Later in the season the fellows showed their appreciation by giving a similar spread for the girls. This was also given the name of "Success", due to the capability of the chairman, Sherman Haligas. Ray Price favored the group with some songsg Wyatt Harding gave a readingg after which games and refreshments followed for everyone. These parties not only encourage the girls, especially, to go out for hockey, but also show the cooperation that exists in this particular phase of school life. FOOTBALL "E" lVlEN'S BANQUET One of the importgant events of the school year is the "E" Men's Banquet, held at the end of each football season. The dinner and decorations for the 1928 banquet were prepared by the domestic science classes under the very able supervision of Mrs. C. E. Adams and Miss Ruth Bradish. To th-em goes a large share of the credit for the success of the evening. The toastmaster, Mr. Larsen, introduced the speakers in quite a novel manner. The coaches, the assistant coaches, and s-everal of the faculty and business men made short speeches. The coaches present-ed their teams with letters, which were of a new type, maroon outlined with a cream stripe. The coaches and captains on behalf of theg teams were presented with tokens in appreciation of their services. J The event of greatest interest was the election of next year's captain. Hermgf Walser was chosen by a vote that lacked only his own of being unanimous to leadfthe team in 1929. The evening was judged a complete success by all present.

X k'-'J For the past years it has been the custom of the Mirror Board to sponsor a Comedy 2 Concert, which featured different stunts presented by the clubs and some of the stu- G dents of the E. H. S. But this year their policy was changed, and a Fun Night was staged instead. Mr. Kersten was the General Manager and several faculty members assisted by directing some of the projects that were presented. Altogether about two N hundred students took part in making this night a success. Ji In presenting this Fun Night it was necessary to utilize practically the entire building. Most of the rooms were used for entertaining exhibits and side shows, while a few were used for the sale of refreshments. The sale of the refreshments was handled by Mrs. Drysdale and the Senior Sales Committee, while Mr. Taylor and mem- X bers of the French, Mathematics, and Geography Clubs took charge of the selling of XP noise makers and novelties. Mr. Miller supervised the sale of tickets, and Mr. Angel X and some of his pupils were the official ticket takers. The entertainment of the evening was furnished by diierent groups and clubs. 3 The Home Economics Club directed the Fortune Telling Booth, which proved to be one N. , of the big drawing cards. Another show that caused a great deal of comment was the zoo, conducted by the Junior Hi-Y. This featured such freaks of nature as a hairless . dog, which was nothing more than an everyday frankfurter, also a horse with his tail JJ where his head should be, which was a rocking horse with his tail in a pail of oats, and last but not least the missing link, which was a string of frankfurters with one 3 link missing. The impersonation of the half man, half woman was very well done by X Mike Sanfratelle, who was made up partly as a man and partly as a woman. Other S shows and exhibits which were interesting were the games of skill, held in the gym K '- under the direction Qf Mr. Resekg the room for men only, sponsored by a group of L," boys, and an interesting exhibit of a model fish pond presented by one of Miss y Bradish's classes. The exhibit of the evening that proved to be the most entertaining to J- the students was the Rogues Gallery. This great gallery showed the baby pictures and JJNJ the present pictures of the faculty, which clearly demonstrated the advance of education. f w About the most mysterious and fascinating exhibit was that displayed by the Science Department. It consisted of a silver dollar which spun constantly on a glass 'H plate, a ring which jumped from one post to another at regular intervals without any D N visible reason, and a'ball which twirled around in the air without any support what- 3. kj soever. fd., And last of all we come to the main attraction of the evening, which was the N "Zander-Gump Wedding." This was an impersonation of nearly all the comic charac- J ters of our daily newspapers enacting the famous Bim Gump and Widow Zander ,J do wedding. About thirty five students took part in the play and were directed by Miss - V' Biersach. The ceremony took place in the Auditorium and was performed by none IJ , other than the dignified Major Hoople. 2? If After the crowd had witnessed the wedding and other shows, and had made as cw -9 Q much noise as possible, this great night of fun was brought to a close. It proved that, Q O although it was quite different from the old Comedy Concert, it could furnish the 62 IN people with as much entertainment and be as big a success. 5' 1 mf Q K ' O l I 1 I . fb, - ll tix 1 .I M, fs 1 y gag K - I 142 '- rx' ,fx Fw T Q w my-gf' rvCG"' we YW l GN if 'X 14 w ,ri ,.

Let's show the spirit of our class As we set out to work and win! For some the way will easy beg For others the victory will be won By work and struggle. Through it all Our "Deeds-not Dreams" shall lead us on. Inspired by this throughout our lives We'll learn that Work was made to bless, And as we near the journey's end We know we all have found-Success!
