RUMMELE THE ADVISERS Because of the increased enrollment in our high school, a per- sonnel department has been organized. Last year there were advisers for the girls only, but this year advisers were added for the boys. Mrs. Drysdale is the head of the advisory group and is adviser for the Senior girls. The other advisers for the girls are Miss Smith, Juniorsg Miss Rummele, Sophomoresg and Miss Wood, Freshman. The advisers for the boys are, Mr. Larsen, Seniorsg Mr. Wood, Juniorsg Mr. Vonckx, Sophomoresg and Mr. Kersten, Freshmen. Two rooms, 318 for the boys and 201 for the girls, are used for conferences. Here the advisers may be found during their free periods. The purpose of this department is to create a better coordination between the student, his school Work, and his home. It should help the student to solve any problems pertaining to his school life. 15 Qu -Eval 4 1 A- , r M. -f .. '5-91 xiul ,l, CLIFTON E. ADAMS Science-Athletics B. A.

DRYSDALE WILLIAM DIAL CLIFFORD BECKER BARBARA GRAVES THE SENIUR CLASS HISTORY ln 1926 four hundred thirty-five Freshmen boarded the E. H. S. "Friendship" to start a four year journey toward the goal of higher education. The first lap of the journey was made quite successfully considering the inexperience of the travelers. Jean Witherel and Burt Ashman were chosen as their representatives on the ship's "Coun- cil". Both the boys and girls were soon known for their skill in athletics, the girls winning the Interclass Volleyball championship. Even at this early time some developed the trick of making the Honor Roll The second part was also accomplished without mishap. Walser, Ashman, Harding, Keane, and Greenawalt were known throughout the ship for their athletic ability. Burt Ashman and Herman Walser represented the group on the "Council" during this time. At the beginning of the third year these fairly experienced sailors, now known as "Juniors," found it necessary to choose a captain. They chose Thomas Keane to lead them, Phillip Symmonds as First Mate, and Phyllis Schneff as Purser. The rest of the class served as the trustworthy and hardworking crew. To distinguish themselves from the others on board, these Juniors wore mid- night blue sweaters with "1930" in orange letters. On May 9 and 10, 1929, this group very suc- cessfully presented Oscar Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest" for the entertainment of the other shipmates and to earn money for their part in the ship's treasury. Willard Wellnitz and Glenn Bohl were now members of the "Council." Burt Ashman captained the lightweight football team, and "Hermie" Walser captained the heavyweight basketball team. The last year of this journey came. The one time deckscrubbers had become "old-salts." For this important year the officers chosen were: Captain, William Dial: First Mate, Cliiford Becker: and Purser, Barbara Graves. The "big hit" of the season, "The Queen's Husband" by Robert Em- met Sherwood given December 5 and 6, showed the ability of the class to put things over. The Ship's Council was headed by Elmer Baker, with Jean Witherel, Erwin I-Iolth, Charles Karsten, and John Bledermann as the Senior's representatives. The "Rough Riders," Walser, Ashman, Harding, and Karsten brought even more honor to their class through their athletic ability. The girls won the Interclass Basketball championship as well as participating in all other sports. These Seniors had the unique and unusual opportunity of swelling their treasury and' participating in civic affairs at the same time by selling medallions furnished by the Exchange Club to raise money for the Elgin Airport. Now, in June, the Class of 1930 ends its tour on the E. H. S. "Friendship" to begin a larger and more extended tour on "The World." But we know that with such a good start these graduated sailors cannot help but become successful captains. BARBARA L. GRAVES 24 ALTHEA H. ADAMS "My Pal-Mitt Me" General Course All Athletics: G. A.

But, just keep our courage strengthened as we struggle toward the goalg Never for a moment falter like some lost and hungry soul. And the "Midnight and the Orange," how with pride our hearts will swell To behold this glorious emblem of the class we love so well. Every windowin the building, every classroom, desk, and door, Knows the students and their footsteps, like the scholars gone before. So, no wonder we are saddened, knowing that the day is near For so many good and true friends' final parting will be here. But, the memory of their friendship we have buried 'way down deep, Where all treasures of a lifetime, there forever, we shall keep. And, we'll say farewell to high school and our learned teachers, too, To the friends we made while coming here, to old friends and to And, to our loyal classmates all success that you may gain, Keep our motto e'er before you, "Let Achievement Be Our Aim." And when you've finally reached the top, all knowledge that you seek, And gained all glory to be had, e'en to the highest peak, Just pause and draw a picture-a vision through the haze- Of the CLASS OF 1930 and Elgin High School days.

Moons JUNIUR CLASS HISTORY In January of 1927 one-hundred and fifty students became members of the "Class of '31," and in September, two-hundred and sixty-four more joined them. During the freshman year we tried our best to become acquainted with school functions by back- ing athletics, debate, and the honor roll. The Class elected Alice Crocker and Frank- lin Gannon representatives on the Student Council. The sophomore year was more eventful for its members. Robert Romeis and Don- ald Butler ably represented us on the Council. In athletics for 1928-29 several boys earned "E's" during the year, and 20 girls received minor "E's." One of our members was on the Varsity debate team that year. In the junior year the class was ready for hard work, and began immediately by organizing and electing officers. Robert Romeis was selected as president, Paul Born, vice-president, and Marelu Moore, secretary. For this year, Robert Reid, Donald But- ler, Howard Rovelstad, and Alice Crocker were on the Student Council. The class took pride in having two of our members football captains for 1930-31, James Walker and Paul Born, the latter being also president of the Maroon Athletic Club for 1929-30. The boys and girls both took part in athletics, many receiving "E's." An unusual play, "Little Women," was given on May 22 and 23 to large audiences, showing that it was a great success. The prom committees made the Junior prom on June 6 a thing to be remembered. The "Class of '31" has passed three such memorable years, and there are still three hundred loyal members ready to make the senior year the best ever. MARELU E. MOORE '31 50 UNIORS A. Adams, M.

We begin our acquaintance with the English school boys by talking about sports, which seem to be a part of all Englishmen. We tell them of the success of our 1929 football team, and visit Rugby, where college youth first car- ried the pigskin. They are greatly interested in the American who invented basketball. Having discussed all our other sports with our new friends, we sail on to Sweden and Norway, where we hear all about skiing. We try one of their new jumps, but give up be- cause we dislike what seems to be the Amer- ican method of landing fhorizontal fashionj. In Holland we become much attached to the sturdy people who skate so well on the frozen canals. Here, as in all the other places we have stopped, we present the following resume of our athletic year. ff AIVIHILIUTIICS Y Wilma-new Leg ,-.., UUR COACHES The coaches of Elgin High School are always striving to better the teams of the school. They are always working for the good of the. team, and the success of the season is judged not only by the number of games won, but also by the sportsman- ship and the clean play which every team member shows. M. E. WILSON Mr. Wilson has been with the school now for almost seven years. During this time he has acted as athletic director and has also coached the heavyweight football teams and lightweight basketball teams with great skill. He is liked by all the fel- lows and is considered an excellent coach. C. E. ADAMS "Cliff", as he is known around the school, has shown his keen ability as a light- weight football coach and heavyweight basketball coach for the last three years. He has also been instrumental in developing the track team to a serious contending po- sition in the competition. He is a great friend to all and is well liked by the students. E. F. RESEK Never before in the history of the school have the intramural sports been so well developed. Mr. Resek's aim was to have every boy who is not out for inter-scholas- tic sports engaged in some intra-mural sport. In order to give every boy a chance many new sports have been started. Much credit should be given him, and almost every boy felt his loss when he left us this year. C. J. ROGERS Mr. Rogers has been assisting Mr. Wilson for six years. He should be compli- mented on the fine work which he is doing, and we all hope he will be on deck again J. A. KRAFFT This is Mr. Krafft's second year with the school. He is a fellow who can be de- pended upon, and it is hoped he will be Mr. Adams' able assistant again next year. L. V. Robinson assisted Mr. Resek this year, and will probably help W. E.

When Elgin "took on" Carl Shurz, always a formidable oppo- nent, they defeated them by a score of 6-0. When the conference season started, Elgin was considered one of three teams who might win the conference. One by one the games slipped by without a loss. The other two expectants lost games, leaving Elgin on top. After playing these two teams the "Maroons" still stood undefeated. Elgin had won two conference cham- pionships in succession, something that very seldom happens. This championship was not the hardest ever played, but it meant a lot of hard work and was certainly not the easiest conference played. Only a few of the fellows had experience last year, and most of it was developed this year which meant a lot of work, not only on the part of the boys, but on the part of the coaches, in developing the team. The team was captained again by "Hermie" Walser, who, if possible, did better this year than last. "Hermie" gave untiring efforts toward the betterment of the team and deserves a large share of credit for his excellent work. The teamwork with which the fellows as a whole worked was also recommendable. And, last but far from least, the work of Coach Wilson deserves credit. If it were not for his efforts in telling the boys their faults and helping them along, the team would have won no place in the conference. Part of the team is left, and is in readiness for next fall's battle. 68 la LIGHT WEIGHT SEASGN W L T Pct Elgin ,,,,,, ,7..,,, 4 1 0 .800 Rockford . ,. .. 4 1 0 .800 Joliet .. .,,,,,,,,. . ,,,, 3 1 1 .750 W.

This is the third successive Big Six championship for the lightweights. There were nine games played. Three games were played against Chicago schools, and in all three of these the lights were victorious. A non-conference game was also played with W. Aurora. In these nine games the lights scored 148 points to their opponents 34. Many of the games were very lopsided, the score being a very high one to the opponent's zero. During the whole season only one game was lost, this being to Rockford. Last year the Ponies did not lose a single game. Losing only one game in two years is a very good record and shows hard work on the part of the boys and the coach. Captain Ray Cahill should also be complimented for the fine part he played. He was a captain that refused to get excited in time of a tight pinch, and he was always a hard fighter until the end of the game. He was unselfish and a friend to all the fel- lows on the team, and there was always a fine spirit of co-operation between him and the rest of the fellows. Thus we add another successful year to our long list of victories in previous years, and we hope that next year's team will be equally successful. Although almost half of the fellows graduate this year, it is hoped that a number of new ones come out to take their places. 69 1 Xxf ft! -A I x 1. , . Xl 41-of Ig Q Q j ' .

'g 5 1: rf' E WALSER BORN GREENAWALT SYMMONDS CAPTAIN WALSER "Hermie," as captain and quarterback on E'gin's conference championship team this year, had a great deal to do with the success of his team. This was "Hermie's" fourth and last year of foot- ball. When the hard drive through center or a long punt was needed, Hermie was always ready. He will be greatly missed next year as he was always one of the team's mainstays. Walser was sel- ected an all-conference and all-state man. CAPTAIN-ELECT BORN Paul's ability as a football player was proven by his being selected as an end on the all-state team. Not only did he catch passes well, but he also played a good defensive game, throwing his opponents for losses many times. Much of the teams success this year depended upon Paul, and with one more year to play he ought to do more than ever. GREENAWALT "Ceddie," one of the smallest men on the team, played an excellent brand of football all season and at guard bucked up against some of the huskier men in the conference. This is Cedric's sec- ond year as a heavyweight "E" man. He has always been known as a man who could get through, and on offensive played interference. This is Cedric's senior year. S Y M M O N D S Phil came back in his second year to do greater things than he started last year. He played the whole year as half on the heaviesp and although he was light in weight, he could get the ball through. On defense Symmonds proved a very deadly tackler and was usually given a wide berth. This is Symmond's last year, and he will be greatly missed in the backfield. Q in as ... . 70 SMITH HOLTH WALKER NELSON S M I T H Glenn was also among the green boys who started their interscholastic football this year. How- ever, soon after "Smitty" appeared on the field, he was noted for his hard and sure tackling. Soon he was on the regulars. At East Aurora he did some of the most spectacular tackling. Next year when the team is made up, "Smitty's" place will be hard to till. HOLTH "Tuffy," after being out a year, came back to the Maroon and Cream to fill the important po- sition of fullback. Holth very competently filled this position, and always seemed to be the man for the long end runs, as he was fast. He showed up particularly well at the Aurora games. Tuffy was one of our great backfield of this year and one who will be missed next year when they start carrying the old "Pigskin" down the field. CAPTAIN-ELECT WALKER "Jimmy," playing center, made a most enviable reputation and played an excellent defense. Jim- my was outstanding in pass-catching. Walker, with Born, was chosen to be co-pilot of the heavy- weight team of next year. As an interference man Walker is commendable. He is an all-around player with qualities to be found in many young fellows. Jimmy will be back next year and will in all probability be one of the strongest men in the conference. NELSON This was "Johnny's" first year at football, but in spite of this fact, he showed up remarkably well. He held the position of right guard. John was put on the guard position after he showed ex- cellent work on the B team. If John had another year, he would probably be one of the conference's greatest. He will be missed a great deal next year. Q. A A .,l..f. . Q 71 Fi ., A ill u I. 'i rx X. X mas! Q I ' G' 59 2' ,3f'l' ! ' 5 : 5,2 L -P Ei V ,I T .4 l 51, 115 ig 1 1.

' as K1-:RN GRANT BUERK ASHMAN K E R N This was Kern's first year in heavyweight football, and he played a remarkable game all sea- son. Kern, when playing right guard, was almost immovable, and a ceaseless fire of interference played on him. He was a big man, sure of getting through on offense, and could hold out the strongest on defense. George has one more year and will be a very capable player in next year's GRANT Grant played his First year in the line alternating with Cedric Greenawalt. Grant is a little larger than "Ceddie." Walter was always there when called on to plough through that line in inter- ference. When Grant was in as left guard there was always surefire action on that side. Grant will be back next year and will help make up a great line for 1930. BUERK Although Buerk did not hold down a regular position as tackle, he was nevertheless a valuable player and was always kept close at hand in case he was needed. He was a hard man to get through for a gain and also worked well in opening up holes for his team mates to slip through. With two more years to play he ought to develop into a regular Maroon fighter. ASHMAN Burt has been playing football ever since he entered high school. This year he decided to play with the bigger boys, and a valuable player he proved to be. Burt was one of the hardest line plungers on the team. This is his last year to play on account of graduation, and his loss will be keenly felt because he has meant so much to E. H. 5. teams. line. as 72 I 1 A , rf' - OLSON NOTTOLINI HARDING O L S O N This is Frank's first year at interscholastic football, and he showed up very well. Frank held down right tackle position. Here he opposed some of the biggest men in the conference and was hard by interference. Olson was a very good tackler, and on account of his weight could carry any man in the "Big Six". Frank is only a sophomore and will undoubtedly be one of the greatest tack- lers this school has seen. NOTTOLINI "Dino" proved to be a valuable player to the heavyweights. He was chosen as an all-conference tackle and he certainly deserves it. Both on offense and defense he was always in there fighting for his team. With two more years to play he will be able to develop into a great player and probably be an all-conference man both years. HARDING Wyatt has just finished his third and last year of football for old E. H. S., and his loss will he keenly felt. Wyatt held down the position of right end, and was always the man for a long pass. He played a very high brand of football all year both on the oifense and defense, for he was found quite as good at blocking off the opponents' passes as he was catching those of his own team. Wyatt made the all-conference team at his position. z. an i Q, A I K ' l s 73 Sim! JXX Hun AMW 1 fXXXXXXl 14 Q' gave ,xfffliier -A-- 4- A ff.

CAHILL WEIDEMANN ROMEIS MORTALLERO C A H I L L Cahill was one of the fastest men in the conference and was a reliable ball carrier. Ray was one of the players who always furnished much action. He was especially good on end runs, and many of Elgin's touchdowns were made by his efforts in these runs. Ray will be back next year and W E I D E M A N N This is "Walt's" second year as a regular on the ponies, and he proved to be a very efficient man. Weidemann was an outstanding tackler all through the season. ln the latter part of this year's games Walt had a Mcharlie horse" which hc c0uldn't get rid of and which kept him out of the rest of the games. He was an outstanding center and all-round player. This is Walt's last year. R O M E I S "Bob" was also one of the boys who played his first interscholastic football this year. Romeis started as sub at end and played part of the year at this position. He was one of the fastest men on the team and was put at half where he proved himself to be quite a ball-carrier. He will be back M O R T A L L E R O "Joey" was one of the best half-backs in our conference and a very good runner. This is his second year of outstanding football. Not only was "Joey" good at carrying the ball, but he was also an excellent interference runner and could always block out his man. KARSTEN "Pete" has now finished his third and last year of lightweight football. Pete is one of the best developments of Coach Adams and has been outstanding all the time. KARSTEN will be a very outstanding player. next year. 74 Ia MATTESON MILLER FRITTS ZH-:RKE LARSON M A T T E S O N Matteson was one of Adams' first string tacklers who paved the way for so many of the touch- downs made by the "lights". These men kept the opposing.: team from their "first downs" many times and by violent charging helped the team on offensive. Matteson will be back next year for M I L L E R Jack is one of the best ends the "Lights" have seen in years. He was very good in catching passes and equally as good on defense. He has been one of the threats of the team for two years. This is Jack's last year and he will leave a big gap. F R I T T S 'iBill" reported for practice for the first time this spring and seemed to develop quickly. He played as sub until Weidemann was out and then made his quarters and received his "E", Fritts will probably be regular center next yeai. L A R S O N "Swede" was a "sub" of last year and came out in full force this year. He played right tackle and brought down his man almost every time. "Swede" was always dependable when a play was to be made around his end. Ralph will be back next year, and great things will be expected of him. Z I E R K E Zicrkc is a senior who has worked hard and has received his "E" for superior ability. He was one of the hard.hitting tackles of this year'S team. Lawrence was also a good offense man, being able to clear the way for the ball carriers. He was an important cog in the yzrid machine. bimzcx' and better football. -n -A i 1 75 9 N A jf? as X ,:..

Pilcher was outstanding as a plunger and was also fast and heavy enough to act as an interference man. He will be back next year and continue his excellent work. S T A N F O R D Clarence made the team for the first time this year and made it because of his superior ability in getting through. He played tackle and could get his man through even the strongest defenses. Clarence will be back for two more years and will be one of E. H. S.'s best tacklers. GOSTELLE BLAKESLEY This was "Johnny's" first year of football on the regular squad, and he turned out remarkably well. "Johnny" was put in as an extra at full-back and later won a permanent position there on the team. John will be back next year and will be one of the best ball-carriers. E R D M A N This is "Stan's" second year as a regular on the Ponies, and he was even better this year than last. Erdman was just the man to get through on offense and was good at blocking. "Stan" will be back next year and will form an important cog in the machine. B L A K E S L E Y This is Lenard's second year in lightweight football, and he has certainly made himself known. Blakesley has been playing fullback this year and is good at carrying the ball and as an interference man. Blakesley will be back next year. He will be one of the best backfield men in the conference. 76 CAPT.

Two more non-conference games were played against schools from Ohio and Indiana, both being victories for the heavies. The first five conference games played were victories, but when they met Freeport the second time, they lost by a small margin. The only other conference game lost was to Joliet, but these two losses did not put Elgin out of the race. At the end of the conference they came out victors, being in tie for first place with Freeport. Altogether four- teen games were playedg eleven were victories, and only three were losses. Elgin scored 330 to its opponents 238. With the conference over, Elgin next entered the district tournament held at Dun- dee. The first game played was against Harvard. It seemed that it was Elgin's "off night," and a final rally in the last quarter gave Elgin the game by only one point, 23 to 22. Both Woodstock and Hampshire fell before the strong Maroon machine, but in the final game with Dundee we came out the losers, 32-24. Elgin played a real brand of basketball in this game and was given credit as one of the cleanest teams in the tournament. Although Elgin was beaten by Dundee in the District Tourney, they were not out of the race altogether, for they were chosen to play as the eighth team at the Sec- tional Tourney at Joliet. In the first round Elgin met Dundee, and this time the Ma- roons were the winners by a very close score, 24-23. By virtue of this victory Elgin played Waterman. Waterman's keen eye for the basket and their superb passing de- feated Elgin, 16-13. This closed the season for Elgin. Much of the team's success is due to Coach Adams who worked hard to develop the team. Captain Born's leadership and the fine cooperation between him and the fellows on the team proved to be very valuable. With a few of the regulars back next year another championship ought to be brought to Elgin, and we all hope for their SUCCESS. 78 LIGHT WEIGHTS BIG SIX STANDINGS Won Lost Pc . W.

Although the lights were not so successful as last year s team nevertheless they deserve much credit for the victories they did gain. Thought they made no remark- able record the boys showed a fine spirit when winning or losing. The fact that the lights did not win all their games this year can be attributed to the fact that there were only two regulars from last year and the rest were fellows with little or no experience. Four non-conference games were played. Three of these were lost while only one was in our favor. These games put the Ponies into form and they also gave the in- experienced fellows a chance to learn a few tricks of the trade. The conference seemed to be the stumbling block for Elgin. Although the fellows played good basketball in every game, they did not win them all. Four conference games were won, and six were lost, leaving the lights in fourth place in the Big Six standings. Altogether there were fourteen games played in which Elgin scored 291 points to it opponents 260. Ray Smith was chosen captain at the beginning of the season. Although this is only Ray's second year as a regular, he proved that he could lead his teamg it was his leadership which inspired his team whether they were winning or losing. In reward for his good work he was given a guard position on the all-conference lightweight team, and later on in the season he was drafted over to the heavyweight squad. In the tournament games he was always given a chance to play. Coach Wilson worked as hard as any one, and he has placed a good deal of faith in this team. Next year every fellow will be back with the exception of Cahill.

H. S. player to be selected on the all-conference team, and he surely de- served the title of all-conference center. He was a leader that everyone admired and respected. Not only did he play hard himself, but he also had the ability to instill into the hearts of his team- mates the old Maroon and Cream spirit. It was Paul's fighting leadership that carried Elgin through many a game. He still has one more year to play, and next year he ought to he a "whiz," WALSER "Hermie" is another fellow who could be rated among the best in the E. H. S hall of fame. Hermie has played on the heavies for four years. Twice in these four years he served as captain. He is probably the best guard that E. H. S. has ever produced. His motto was to fight hard and play the game cleanly whether we were losing or winning, and to this motto he stuck. Not only in defense work was he good, but also on offense, for his passing was good and he had a good eye for the basket. We wish him the best of luck in carrying on his career at college. HARDING Wyatt was another man to be lost via the nine semester route, and his loss surely was felt by the team. For three years Wyatt had played the forward position on the heavies. He was a very speedy player and an outstanding dribbler. His dribbling and accurate basket shooting accounted for his gaining more than his share of the points. He has built up a good record both as an all-around athlete and a clean player, and we are sorry to lose him. KARSTEN "Pete" came over to the heavies this year after playing with the lights for two years. As a forward he was hard to beat, and what he lacked in size he made up for in speed. His steady, con- sistent playing, excellent shooting, and intelligent team work featured his play. His loss was keenly felt after he was out by the nine semester ruling. ASHMAN Burt played his second year with the heavies this year until he became ineligible. Burt prob- ably would have been an all-conference man had he played the whole season. He was a very valu- able player either at guard or forward and it seemed that he could drop the ball through the wicket from any spot on the floor. His keen playing had his opponents worried many times, and We hope as he goes on that he will uphold his good record. 80 SMITH SYMMONDS HARDER RASMUSSEN WAIJKER S M I T H Lyle played regularly after the mid-semester loss and developed into a real player in a comparatively short time. "Smitty" was a hard and steady player with an un- canny eye for the basket. He always managed to come through w.th his share of points for each game. He played forward all season, and we are sorry that this is his last year. R A S M U S S E N "Jim" also came to the top in a very short time and was always a reliable and dependable player. His unselfish attitude and ready support won him the respect of his teammates. Jimmie played the guard position all season. He was a wizard on de- fense work and was the cause of upsetting many of the opponents' plays. Next year he will be back with the Maroon and Cream, and we shall expect even more of him. S Y M M O N D S "Phil's" basketball career started last year when he became a regular after some of the fellows were lost by the nine semester ruling. This year he played regularly at forward and played it well. He worked hard all season and was one of the most determined fighters on the squad. At the Dundee tournament he was at his best and proved himself a star, which netted him the honor of forward on the all-tournament W A L K E R This was "Jimmie's" first year as a regular, although he played on the B team last year, This year he became a regular when the guard position was left vacant, and he undoubtedly was one of the best guards in the conference. Although he was playing guard, he always managed to come through for a few points every game. Jimmy still has another year to play, and by next year ought to develop into all-conference material. H A R D E R Although Harder was not a regular player, he undoubtedly was very valuable to have around in case he was needed. He played the center position, and on account of his great height was well adapted for this position. His height, however, did not hin- der him from being a speedy player, for he was always on the job ready to receive a pass or complete a perfect play. Harder has another year to play. team. 81 IHS Gm W X X X Mx 4 on 3 it ,ii 5 .Y r - ' aiil Ce1Q Q x A 2 ii A 5 i is .L Q P .4 A 1. .5 ,S R n it 71' f Q W X all I . if Xl wggw-13.3353 -,1 fii - qv. is JS X N 4 6 EX x X .L .14 S if . x ' - ., 1-H Y n v yhx lg N 9 N ' Q N 5 ? f VY ann' ? ,f"'- iw"-. .. by .AXXV n .G , X fx gf : X .CX .go Vs 'TIL THE B TEAMS This is the second your that the I3 teams have pert'orniefl for E.

S. trackmen started training early in the year, while those who were still on the basketball squad started soon after the basket- ball season was over. Four letter men from last year are back, and many new fellows are out. F1-om these, Coach Adams ought to produce a team as good as any.in the conference. Coach Adams has done much in the past in turning out cham- pionship teams and under his tutelage many individual stars have been produced. Because Ray Cahillfhas had a great deal of experience as a track man and because of his ability both as a leader and as a per- former, he was elected captain. Ray runs the half mile and mile. The other letter men back from last year are Walker, who works at the weightsg Romeis, who sprintsg and Matteson, who runs the 440 and half mile. Some of the new material that presented itself also seems to be showing up very well, and this will add to the strength of the team. The first meet that Elgin tracksters were entered in was the Big Six meet held at Joliet. Here Matteson copped the mile, while Weg- mann and Oifner placed second and third in the 440. The relay team copped third. At the Northwestern Inter-scholastic Meet, Elgin track- men failed to place, but nevertheless made a very good showing. The track team thus far has done fairly well, and by the time the big meets roll around the fellows will be in good shape. 86 1 I I A I Top Row: Adams, Bachus, Lawless, Romeis, Miller, Washer, Cutter, Shaw, Schultz Silagy.

Tennis is becoming more and more popular each year. This is the second year that E s were awarded to the fellows. Last year three E s were awarded and there will probably be more given this year. To quality for an E a fellow must either win a place in a Big Six meet or in some other big meet such as the Kane County championships or the Stagg Inter- scholastic meet. Mr. Resek gave a great deal of his time to coaching the boys and he understood the game clearly. We were very sorry to lose Mr Resek in the middle of the semester this year Mr. McBride then took Mr. Resek s position as coach and he also proved himself valuable In order to do a thing well a person must put in a lot of practice and tennis is no exception to this rule. The boys spend much time in practicing The use of the concrete courts at the D C Cook Company enabled the boys to get out as early as February to practice. The squad surely appreciated the use of these courts. The courts at Maroon field were also used. Charles Stahl and John Biedermann last years letter men in tennis were selected as co-captains to pilot the squad through the 1930 season. Stahl and Biedermann won the doubles last year and this year they ought to bring even more honors back to Elgin There are also many underclass men on the squad this year and some of them look like future champions. We hope they will bring i .L FL. Q ioi T . V 'Eff Q' -. 6 1 S , F 3 -3 N in ' ' ' . . . f ' K 4 315 , 5 I , 1 1 ll fif 'i ' Q . ,,, ?

The winner had to be outstanding in his groups. The winner of the senior division was Robert Billings, Junior division, "Woody" Miller, Sophomore division, Carl Carlson. THE FALL GOLF CHAMPS The intramural golf season started ofl' well with a good representation from every class. The boys showed some good golf which came from consistant practice. The competition, as has always been the custom, was carried on in the individual classes. The winners of each class and runners-up are shown in the picture, 89 THE SWIMMING TEAM The swimming team, formed this year for the first time, practiced in the Y. M. C. A. pool each week and developed very rapidly. After the start of the second sem- ester several meets were held. The team was composed of Edward Hunt, the Morri- son brothers, "Swede" Larson, Joe Sowers, Neil Soper, Evan Evans, and Charles Dugan. THE BRUINS HOCKEY TEAM The hockey season started with a bang. Six teams entered in a hockey conference within the school. The oficial games were played off at Lord's Park lagoon. The winners were the "Bruins", composed of G. Yoder, 0. Matteson, O. Behrens, W. Behrens, A. Zickuhr. 90 1 UN DER-CLASS TENNIS These under-classmen reported for intramural tennis and will be our tennis champs of future years. These boys are successful tennis players for their age and champs of under-class tennis. This spring they will either report for intramural, for more practice, or enter at once into inter-scholastic competition. THE FRESHMAN BASKETBALL CHAMPS These boys, though just entering High School, came out and defeated several other Freshman teams. They will in all probability later come out for inter-scholastic basketball, and this intramural experience is an excellent way to start out. The team is composed of Harz, Miller, Neal, Henryson, Mink, Coyle. 91 -1--.L-. ' 4 .

V-:- THE JUNIOR BASKETBALL CHAMPS This intramural basketball team was captained by George Lindoerfer and was successful in defeating all of the teams in its schedule. The intramural schedule was arranged so that each class would have a certain number of teams to play, and then the winner would be class champion. This team was winner in the Junior Division. THE SOPHOMORE BASEBALL TEAM Another of the intramural sports of interest in baseball. Each class divides itself into several teams. All through the fall these boys were down at Maroon Field playing their "conference" games. This is the winning team of the whole school. This sophomore team barely pushed ahead when playing both Senior and Junior teams, but was strong enough to win. 92 GIRLS ATHLETICS MISS WIESLANDER MISS LOGAN MISS KETTERING COACHES Every year more high school girls take part in athletics. One reason for this development is the increasing number of sports offered each year. The Field House is a great factor in producing interest and enthusiasm. If the attendance at the field increases as much next year as it has this year, it will become necessary to have lockers and showers built on the south side of the house. A great deal of the credit for the success of girls athletics belongs rightfully to Miss Logan and her assistants, Miss Kettering and Miss Wieslander. They made it possible to have a large number of diffelrent activities so that girls who do not care for one sport may participate in anot er. Miss Logan showed her excellent ability in the general supervision and planning of the athletic program. All the activities were run off as scheduled both at the field and in the gym. While supervising all the sports, she took direct charge of hockey, basketball, volleyball and bowling. The success of Play Day was due to her. The basket shooting contests were also conducted by Miss Logan. Due to her the girls athletics of Elgin High School rank among the highest in this section of the state. Miss Kettering has charge of the freshman gym classes. She assisted Miss Logan with baseball, basketball, and hockey. She was in charge of ice hockey, which is a comparatively new sport in E. H. S. Miss Wieslander assisted Miss Logan at the field. She had charge of tennis, archery, croquet, and horseshoes. Athletics in our school have seemed to bring students into closer bonds of friend- ship, and have established among our girls a sense of co-operation. 94 E AWARDS For the first time in the history of Elgin High School E awards were given to girls in June 1929. Both major and minor E s were awarded. Certain qualifications were essential in order to win a letter. To earn the major letter the girl had not only to participate in a ma- jority of the sports but to excell in them. To earn the minor letter she had to be active and regular in participating in a large number of sports. Five major E awards were given I. Nichol being the only girl having one in school this year the others having graduated last year. Seven Seniors received minor E awards. The Juniors receiving the minor awards were: R. Baker D. Bau K Byrne R. Farmiloe M Free- burg E. Hoffman M. Jacobs R. Kool E. Pierson M. Rovelstad P. Schneff M. Zimmer' the Sophomores. E. Brydges M Churchill M Harper E. Knott M. Kowert E. Kribs R. LeLeivre M. Mattocks M. Moore M. J. Muntz C. Palmer V Rice B Sokody O. Strube . Thornell E. Tolle' the Freshmen: D. Hayward R. Meagher R. Pate L. Ponsonby, and L. Taylor. Another award was given this year the State Athletic Association pin which is very attractive and simple having the gold letters G. A. A. on a white and blue background. Tests sent out by that organization had to be passed before the member was qualified to wear the pin. One hundred and nineteen girls qualified and are now wearing the emblem.

CA fg.:.L'x.Ai 95 HOCKEY Hockey for girls was started at Maroon Field September 9, 1929. After a few nights of practice the captains for the inter-class tourna- ment Were chosen. P. Schneff was elected captain of the Seniors. The Juniors chose E. Pierson as their leader. M. Mattocks was the Sopho- mores' choice. C. Holden was elected captain of the Freshmen. The inter-class matches started the week of October 21. The Senior girls won the hockey tournament, defeating the Juniors with a 3-1 score. It was the royal battle of the season, for the teams were evenly matched and both had been winning their games. T. Nor- man, I. Nichols, and E. Pierson were the stars of the game. The Juniors challenged the Seniors to another game, however, the next week. This time the Juniors carried off the colors. Two goals were made by the Juniors. E. Pierson and R. Baker were the outstanding players. Every class made an excellent showing in the inter-class games, and it was only after a long and hard battle that the Seniors were victorious. .96 '57 Q f . ,., 5 .. .AYL if , ,.,,.. .. . , V A K 5 In U . Y f .i HUCKEY A new feature was tried out in hockey this year. The Illinois League test was given to the girls. This test included dribbling and goal shooting. A new set of rules was used in playing hockey this year. Many interesting classes were held in the Field House for teaching the girls these rules. After the inter-class games another tournament was started. This consisted of three teams, the Red, White, and Blue. F. Auble was the captain of the Red team, M. Freeburg was captain of the Blue team, and C. Hahne of the White. These teams were placed by Miss Logan and were very well balanced as to players. The tourna- ment was not finished because of the interference of winter weather, which put an end to all activities at the Field. Although hockey has been listed among the various girls athletic activities for only a few years, it is one of the major seasonable sports of E. H. S. The girls are very enthusiastic about this vigorous and wholesome sport, and participate in it in large numbers. 97 1 Y .ab wjw 13 Oli ff 14X Vg! f f? 7' 5 2 ID' 3 1 ' . 2 Q P j N - Q , 2 U ...F .

The Juniors defeated the Freshmen 22 to 11 in the first game. The Sophomores were defeated by the Seniors by a score of 16-8. The game between the Seniors and Juniors was the fastest game of the season. Good teamwork was shown by both teams. The Seniors gained the lead in the first quarter, but after that it was neck and neck. R. Kool, Senior captain, led her team to victory by a score of 10 to 8. In the beginning of the season a basket shooting contest was held. The interest was great, as was testified by the large turnout. The score in the contest of shooting baskets for one minute from any point on the Hoor was: G. Kruger, Freshman, 235 C. Hohne, Sophomore, 21g L. Fehrman, Junior, 265 R. Kool, Senior, 28. Each of the girls were presented with miniature silver basketballs by the G. A. A. M. Koehler made 14 out of 20 free throws. The team of M. Post, M. Hallock, and R. Pate com- pleted 103 passes in one minute. Another basket shooting contest was started Feb. 28, 1930. In this contest the girls shot from eight specified locations on the floor. They were allowed twenty-four trials. The best eight girls were chosen to represent Elgin in the Second Annual Bas- ket Shooting Tournament which was held on March 24, 1930. Practice was held every noon and after school to prepare the girls for the tournament. The results were tele- graphed to Chicago and compared with those of other schools in the state. The outcome of the district tournament was: 1st Elgin 14.88, 2nd DeKalb 26.88, 3rd West Aurora 28.88. The outcome of the State contest was Palatine lst, Elgin 2nd, and Monticello 3rd. 98 li 5 xt V BASKET BALL Home Room and Club Teams Basketball ranks highest in popularity among E. H. S. girl athletes. Fifty per cent of the girls signed up the first semester. Several tournaments were played, and contests in basket shooting were held. All activities in this sport have a large turn- out. The game develops teamwork and accuracy. Besides exercising all the muscles, it commands fast and keen mental work. The inter-home room tournament was the first in the series. Practice was started on October 28, 1929. Two hundred eighty-six girls signed up, 44 Seniors, 63 Juniors, 79 Sophomores, and 100 Freshmen. The great interest shown by the Freshmen is due to the influence of Miss Kettering, who has charge of the Freshmen gym classes. The games started November 11, 1929. There were several ties in the Freshmen con- tests. The Seniors and Juniors played excellent games. The winning teams and cap- tains of the classes were: T. Norman 306, E. Kribs 316, V. Anderson 211, G. Krueger 104. V. Anderson's 211 team won the tournament after a hard battle with E. Kribs' 316 team. The practice on January 20, 1930, started the inter-club tournament. The in- terest of the girls was shown by the large number that signed up for different clubs, making it necessary for some clubs to organize two teams, so that everyone would have a chance to play. The final game between R. Kool's Commercial Club team and R. LeLeivre's G. A. A. team spelled victory for the Commercial Club, with a score of 18 to 14. B. Sokody of the winning team was the star of the game, making most of the points. The inter-gym class tournament was held during the month of March. B. Sokody's 2nd period team was victorious. 99 x W if 'af QQ gs '51 if li L 2 ig il il , ef ' . 'N 1 A--" ,ii V1 1 LE . .Q jpg Q' 4- ,Ji -I 5 I Q, 1. X Q, 4' lx 4. ri . "- i 1.

It is a popular sport for girls and takes care of large numbers, thereby making it espe- cially well adapted to E. H. S. conditions. It is not a rough game, but develops the quality of teamwork, which is essential in order to win. It is growing in popularity with our girl athletes. The girls decide upon the rules they wish to adhere to, and the games they wish scheduled. There was a large turn out for the inter-class tournament, eighty girls partici- pating. The Freshmen as usual had the best showing, with enough for approximately three teams. The Juniors defeated the Freshmen in the finals with a score of 27 to 13. The captains were as follows: Senior, Thelma Normang Junior, Opal Strubeg Sophomore, Verle Anderson: Freshmen, Gertrude Krueger. 100 .1 la 5 BASE BALL Baseball was started in September, 1920. Miss Kettering took charge of the games, which were held at the field every night. Four teams were organized from every gym class. A spring tournament was started as soon as the weather permitted. The captains chosen from each class for the spring games were 1, R. Pate, 2, J. Moore, 3, L. Holmes, 4, M. Parry, 5, R. Carlson, 6, C. Palmer, 7, Emeline Nass, 8, J. Farmiloeg Friday 1st period, B. Graves, 2nd, M. Kowert, 3rd, H. Boman. ARCHERY This year new archery equipment was purchased for the future Robin Hoods. The sport was in charge of Miss Wieslander. Fifty girls signed up for archery at the field. Katherine Reese and M. Burmaster "outshot" the rest and were acknowledged champions. During the winter the girls continued their practice at Mosiman and Knott's. Six- teen captains were chosen and each had four on her team. All the Robin Hoods worked for the honor of their team and class. if fs' WX All hz , x 1NX Fi gl , Xl 1-CH ,X X!

A great interest was shown, which was prob- ably due to the fact that we now have our own tennis courts. Miss Wieslander took charge of the tournament. Since there was such a large group of players, some just beginners and others quite able to handle the racquet to profitable effect, it was de- cided to group the girls according to their ability. Three groups were formed, A, B, and C. Each group had a tournament of its own. To the A group belonged those players who were quite efficient in the game. To the B group belonged those who knew the game, but were not especially good players. In the C group were all those who knew nothing or little of the game. In order to get the tournament played off in the scheduled time, it was necessary, since there were so many players, to eliminate the contestant after she lost a game. This proved very satisfactory. Dorothy Coughlos won the A tournament, Athena Coughlos the B, and Gene Stowell the C tournament. 1472 GOLF Vivian Wolff is the new golf champion among the girls, winning one up from Margaret Freeburg. The match was played at the Wing Park course. Several close matches featured the '29 tournament. In one match, in the semi-Hnals, Margaret Freeburg defeated Jeanne Maclntyre by a small margin. Vivian will hold the girls' golf trophy until next years tournament. Others par- ticipating in the tournament were D. Hooker, M. Rovelstad, E. Pierson, R. Baker, M. J. Muntz, and P. Eames. We are assured by the coaches that none of our girls would qualify for the fol- lowing: It was at St. Andrews that an elderly beginner, fully equipped with a heavy bag of clubs and a caddy, started around. His play was so very bad that the caddy almost wept. At last one of the players became bunkered in one of the most impregnable hazards on the course. After endeavoring to dislodge the ball with every club in his bag, he turned to the caddy and asked feebly: "What shall I take now?" "Poison!" 103 '7 J fi? N f x. 2 . L QS 8 A I? 430 C X. .

Some of these are horseshoe, Croquet, and archery. It also enables more girls to play hockey, tennis, and baseball. It has done much to further girls sports in E. H. S. 104 PLAY DAY Play Day at the Elgin High School gym and Maroon Field was much enjoyed by the girl participants last May. Palatine, Maple Park, Richmond, Barrington, West Aurora, Bensenville, and Elgin had representatives of their G. A. A. meet for a day of good sport. Registration, getting acquainted, and organizing color teams opened the program. There were four teams, Blue, Green, Gold, and Peach. Each entrant worked for her color teams, honors, and points totaled at the close of the day were: Peach 8, Green 6, Gold 6, and Blue 5. Miss Wilda L. Logan of Elgin acted as manager, and physical directors from each school sponsored some part of the program. The day's play was started with zest with relays sponsored by Miss Voigt of West Aurora. The relays were hurdles, hockey, dribble, shuttle, fifty yard dash, and Indian Club relay. The entrants had previously selected baseball, tennis, or volleyball for the next hour. Because of the change in the weather, the luncheon plans were changed from a picnic at the field to one served at the high school building. Each school gave a report of the club affairs in the Illinois State League of High School Girls Athletic Association. Miss Kathary of East Aurora conducted inter- team competition in folk dancing. State League tests in basketball passing were given in over-arm, over-head, and chest passes. They were given by Miss Riggs of Barrington. Twenty stunts, sponsored by Miss Ford of Richmond, were attempted, and nearly all passed the requirements. A dodge ball contest, directed by Miss Van Vactor of Elgin, netted the Blue team a point. Miss Auccult and Miss Morlock of Aurora refereed the basketball game. Mrs. Nellie M. Drysdale of Elgin spoke on "The Value of Play Days for Girls" at the short convocation. Katherine Byrne, local G. A. A. president, spoke for the hostesses. Awards were given to winning teams. Approval of the Elgin girls' Field House was expressed by the visitors. The Elgin girls felt very proud in being host- esses to an Illinois League. The Elgin girls were again hostesses to the Girls' Athletic Association at a Play Day held on May 17, 1930. 105 xff MY at zz.

Wlyff - HOSE of us who have studied a foreign language anticipate the third part of our journey with much pleasure. The path winds among the various countries of southern Europe. We become acquainted with the school children of France, Germany, and Spain, speaking to them in their own tongue. We spend some time in Germany, telling the people about our bands, glee clubs, and or- chestras, and listening to their stories of Wag- ner, von Weber, and Kreisler. When we reach Italy, we feel somewhat stranded, as none of us speak Italian. How- ever, with our knowledge of Latin we can guess a great deal, but being logical we hire an ,inter- preter who translates into Italian the following information gathered from our diaries and let- ters. Through the interpreter we, in turn, learn of Italian schools. DIREX-Will X f XX ai CX Q32 , ATHENS Www THE STUDENT COUNCIL President Elmer Baker Vice-President Donald Butler Secretary Robert Reid Adviser Miss Cleary What Congress is to the United States and the Board of Education is to the school system so the Student Council is to the struggling youth of Elgin High School. It is one way by which we learn something about how to govern ourselves when we grow up. The Council, as a representative of the students, takes care of all petitions and problems that are of interest to the student body as a whole. The Council is made up of a President, chosen from the Senior Class, and four representatives elected from each class at the beginning of the school year. For a few weeks at the beginning of each semester the Council members stand at the stair- ways and enforce the traffic laws. This helps considerably in overcoming the crowded conditions of the school. One Friday every month the Student Council sponsored a school dance from 3:15 to 5:00 o'clock in the gym. At Christmas time and again in April special dances were held at which programs and favors were given out. The small sum of ten cents is charged those students attending the dances to cover such costs as the orchestra and programs. This year the Student Council sponsored a lyceum of four programs brought to us at different times during the year. Season tickets were sold at twenty-five cents each, and ten cents was charged for each individual pro- gram. These programs were greatly enjoyed by the students. The problem of students who forget their locker keys 1. is also taken care of by the Council. A slip must be ob- tained from Miss Cleary and presented to a Council member Q before the Council member can unlock the locker. This method has been very satisfactory in teaching the stu- 'A ' lm ialll ', dents to remember their locker keys.

Will be sorry to leave it. We've met some very interesting peo- pleg or rather, they seem very interesting, as their hands are so expressive. We have had word from Elgin again. They haven't forgotten us completely, any- way. This time it was from Miss Bateman. She tells us that they have had a very good time in their club. The purpose of this club is to widen knowledge of Spanish. They have tried to do this by subtle means, through the medium of songs, stories, games, and plays, all of which are carried out in that language. One of the plays was "La Criada Astuta," a one act comedy. Another was entitled "Clever Maid." There have also been talks on the different cities relating to Spain. At the joint meeting of the foreign language clubs, held in December, the Span- ish club put on an act, "La Nochebuena en Mexico" fChristmas Eve in Mexicoj, which told of an old Mexican custom. And if everything goes well, the club expects to buy some flags of Mexico and of the Spanish speaking countries. Hope the rest back in Elgin haven't forgotten us.

Even though I have never been in a place like this before, I had learned so much about the city in Latin Club meetings, that I really feel quite at home. I have seen many ruins and remains just like those pictured in the slides that the Latin Clubs showed to the Language Clubs at their banquet in December. I never realized when I studied all about Rome and the rest of Italy in Elgin High School that the knowledge would ever be of any practical use. I am glad now that there was a chance to study Latin, even if it did seem rather dry at times. Why, I can even understand some of the things these Italians say, and it comes in quite handy to be able to read street signs. Rome is a funny place-some of it is so old and some so new. It seems odd to see street cars on streets where Caesar and Cicero should Qaccording to my idea of Romej be riding around in carriages. No wonder the ancient Romans wore togas! It never gets quite as hot in Elgin as it is all during the summer in Rome. It's so warm I can hardly write, and besides, it's now the f-' XX time when everyone takes his afternoon nap. ,R Say "hello" to all "Inter Nos" members for me. fi Sincerely, W EQ-f ,- 'N Mnfw Staff Member S5 ,L-.e I! !

The French Club sent a well-timed letter telling us how their meetings were conducted in French, and how the club was entertained by plays of great variety. "At one of our meetings the tale of 'Le Petit Chaperon Rouge' with 'le loup' and 'la grandmere' was put on. At another 'Les Trois Ours' was presented. Many other familiar stories were enacted also. "We have sung all kinds of songs, both folk songs and popular ones. A discourse on Clemenceau is an example of our talks. Letters from French correspondents to members of the club were read. The cities of France were described, Paris in par- ticular, telling of its catacombs, night clubs, theatres, and opera. "Our object in having all these is to gain an insight into French life by inter- esting means. "The club has bought several books, among which are: 'French France,' 'Tales of the Pyrenees,' and 'Hero Stories of Francef 1 "At the Foreign Language Clubs party our act was a dramatiza- E tion of the well-known 'Fox and Crow.' Our social affair in the spring was with the other language clubs." fi X tml.: L ' S - f' .:..ff1.i i.sL4 1- .,'-ff-, .s ,,, , 5, ll2 THE GERMAN CLUB fDer Deutsche Vereinj President Carlton F.

The German club sent us a letter, and it is quite a relief to read English after trying to struggle through German, French, or what have you- Elgin, Illinois "You asked us to write to you to tell you about the activities of our club.

"This is our first year as an organized clubg so, of course, we had to have our contitution and all such technicalitiesf Our purpose as defined in our constitution is to promote interest in the people, customs, language, and everything pertaining to Germany. "In our meetings we sang songs, gave plays, and had talks to carry out our ob- jective. The songs were songs of the New Germany, that is, the songs of the young people of Germany. The topics of discussion included Germany's educational life, the universities and colleges, and her place in aviation. We also read some letters re- ceived by club members from their German correspondents. The plays were all orig- inal. Gretchen Shaeffer wrote one which was given early in the season.

The Commercial Club has finally sent us something about themselves. We are told that they have had a very successful year. The Commercial Club was formed several years ago to create an interest in com- mercial subjects and also to teach the students just what is worthwhile in the busi- ness world. The Club keeps in touch with the modern commercial methods by hav- ing well-informed business men and women speak at the meetings. Something new was undertaken this year-a business men's survey. The entire club was divided up into groups of three. Each three was assigned a certain busi- ness firm from which they were to glean information concerning the establishment's beginning, development, and on what basis the management is now operated. It is hoped that this will bring the members of the club into closer contact with the busi- ness men of the city. The club's purpose and aim can also be more easily obtained by this undertaking. Part of each meeting of the first semester was de- voted to social activities, but because of the new ruling for the second semester only one party was indulged in 'ZZ in. This was held in March when there were balloon i M 5' :'f games, singing, baseball, music, and a ,Z H At - .fi 1, grand march. .12 j.fQ'.4j3j, QQ If: 232:22 3: W at L5 15415 .fa!Qfi5i'2J 2- 263 tifffif 'QXEQKAMQ fr-S'-in 114 GEUGRAPHY CLUB President Glenn Smith Vice-President Charles Karsten Secretary-Treasurer Robert Pilcher Advisers Mr. Beckner, Mr. Adams August 16th We visited the Hague and even went out to a harbor city.

Mr. Beckner writes: "The Geography Club has been very active this year. Once a month programs are given to our members. At one meeting Dr. Yourd told of his interesting trip to Europe and the Palestine. "Besides these programs the club gave one evening entertainment with Mr. H. C. Ostrander, who lectured on the travels in the Magic Isles of the South Seas. There have been several evenings spent with the telescope looking at the moon and planets. A number of field trips were taken to places near Elgin, to a sand pit, to peat bogs, and the like, for the purpose of study.

Today Athens and Olympia were the scenes of our visit. We saw the Marathon course there and wished we could have seen somebody in action on it. Even way out here, away from the beaten paths of the travelers, we heard from Elgin-from the Maroon Athletic Club: "This is the third year of our club. Our object is to foster an interest in ath- letics by creating and increasing student participation in interscholastic athletics. All "E" men of the school and all boys who have been interested in athletics for at least one semester are eligible for membership. "The programs have been of a varied nature. There have been a number of talks on good sportsmanship, training, and sport ethics by both advisers and student mem- bers. A movie was given in the auditorium. There were pictures of the football boys, the hockey girls, and the senior girls. "The "E" men of the club were entertained by the G. A.

All the girls in the school were invited to join our club at the beginning of the year, and most of them accepted the invitation. We tried to make athletics as interesting as we could. To help us along several speeches were given on athletics by Mr. Adams, Mr. McLean, and Miss Kilcullen. There have been moving pictures of our own hockey girls and football boys. In February our club brought a moving picture on "Posture" to the auditorium, which the girls of the whole school attended. Another movie on fencing, tennis, and golf was presented to all the girls in March. "The Wedding of the Painted Doll" was very cleverly put on at one of the earlier meetings. In December the hockey girls of the club entertained the football boys of the M. A. C. at a banquet.

We visited the theaters this afternoon, could understand none of it, but enjoyed it just the same. We received a letter from the Elgin High School Players in the afternoon mail. They write that their club is having a very successful year: "Our club programs have not been the hit-and-miss type. We have made a study of plays, the comedy and the tragedy. There have been debates on the silent drama versus the spoken, illustrated talks on the history of the theater, studies on make-up. on the art of pantomime, and on the lights of the stage. Some of the most eminent actors and actresses were discussed, too. "At Christmas time we gave 'Why the Chimes Rang' and in March two plays, 'Triflesf a tragedy by Susan Glaspell, and 'Sham,' a comedy, put on under student direction.

It doesn't look half as important as it is, though. A letter arrived this morning from our newest club, the Senior Science Club. It was organized only six months ago. Some boys interested in chemistry declared that they would like to form some sort of a science club-and they did. They drew up a constitution to govern themselves and set to work. The mem- bership of the club was open to all those who had taken or were taking chemistry, and those who were taking both biology and some advanced mathematics. A point system was devised. If one wished to remain in the club, he had to score twenty-five points within a month and ten points each month thereafter. A certain number of points were given for reporting or lecturing on im- portant articles in newspapers and magazines, for performing ,QNX and explaining a chemical experiment, fir giving a lecture be- - X4 fore the club, for keeping a science ,A scrap book, and other such activities.

We actually talked over telephone to some one far off in the United States. It was to none other than Mr. Robert Leach, presi- dent of the Mathematics Club. He told us what they have been doing in their club. At each meeting a part of the Einstein theory is discussed, by which action I sup- ! pose they are trying to make Elgin even more famous.

At Christmas time we had loads of fun filling bags for the soldiers at the State Hospital. In the spring we had a Mother-and-Daughter banquet. There have been all sorts of things done at our meetings: Mrs. Topping spoke, the Seniors put on a musical program, the Juniors gave a play, and the Freshies and Sophomores gave some programs of an instructive nature.

Now we shall make up for lost time. We have been having one good time after another. We doubt if even Gypsy Girls could enjoy themselves more. Besides our regular meetings at the "Y" and at school, and our hobbies, we have had many extra social activities. There were the Blue Tri-Y dance given at Thanksgiving time and the Christmas activitiesg then we had our mid- winter banquet with the High School Tri-Y's combined. We gave our Dads a ban- quet in March and soon afterwards had a Mothers-and Daughters tea. We presented a three-act play called, "The Charm School," by Alice Duer Miller and Robert Milton.

It was at first made up of freshmen and sophomore girls, but it soon became so large that the freshmen decided to form a separate club with officers elected from their own class. The purpose of the club is just the same as that of the Senior Blue Tri-Y, and the meetings are conducted in much the same manner. There is a meet- ing at the Y. W. C. A. once every two weeks on Tuesday at 4:00 o'clock. Once a month the club meets on Monday during the regular Activities period at High School. At this meeting the special topic for the month is discussed, and the favorite camp songs are sung. The activities outside the regular club work are also much like those of the Sen- ior Tri-Y. The girls do social service work outside, participate in the regular Blue Tri-Y social affairs, and help present the spring play. At the Comedy Concert they gave a skit called "Sissy Football" and repeated it again for the Lion's Club. This act was as much fun for the girls as for those who watched them.

We are more than glad to comply with your request. We held our meetings once every week, as you know. At these meetings we dis- cussed things of interest to the group in general, the object being development of character. Besides these regular meetings we also had social affairs, such as the Hi-Y spring dance, the Mothers-and-Sons banquet, and the Fathers-and-Sons banquet. We also sponsored a program to help out the Boys Division of the Y. M. C. A. We sent representatives to the Older Boy's Conference at Danville, and we also participated in the Big Four Conference which is composed of the Hi-Y's from East Aurora, West Aurora, Joliet, and Elgin. These conferences are a big help to the clubs because they show the boys what other Hi-Y's are doing, and often give them ideas for what they might do. Just before Easter we held a Pre-Easter Campaign. The purpose of this was to present the standard of the Hi-Y, Clean Speech, Clean Sports, Clean Scholarship, and Clean Living, to the school and community. Various Elgin busi- ness men spoke to the club during this campaign. I 2 These are the most important things we have done during the' year. If you will keep us posted as to your address, p .

"'Good afternoon," he said pleasantly to the young man at .the desk, "Have you any H1-Y boys here, either Junior or Senior, but preferably Junior? I'm quite interested in the work they do." "Junior and Senior Hi-Y boys? Why, what on earth are they?" asked the young man. "You don't know? Isn't this a Y. M. C. A? Well, I'll have to tell you so that you can have an organization here. Listen. The Junior Hi-Y is a boys club started by and continued under the auspices of the Y. M. C. A. The club is made up of high school boys from the freshman and sophomore classes. They hold regular meetings under the direction of a supervisor-usually one of the high school teachers. These meetings are Christian in character and have a wonderful influence on the lives of the boys. They also have social meetings and special parties. "A boy has to be unanimously elected by the club in order to become a member. Then he has to go through a very unique initiation and take his oath, which is that he will be manly in mind, muscle, and morals. He has to live up to the four "C's"-- clean speech, clean body, clean scholarship, and clean athletics. Any boy who does Wh.

We received a newspaper from back home with a very interesting item underscored. It was about some Elgin High School students joining the National Honorary Society for high school journalists, the Quill and Scroll. This took place on Wednesday, January 15, when six students, T. Lawless, D. Hooker, M. Weed, V. Young, K. Byrne, and J. Biedermann, were admitted into the ranks upon the recommendation of Miss Ellis, their sponsor. Members are admitted only when they meet these requirements: they must be at least a junior in standing, they must be in the upper third of their class in general scholastic standingg they must have done superior work in some journalistic or creative workg they must be recommended by the supervisor, they must be approved by the national secretary-treasurer. There are over four hundred chapters of this Society representing more than eight thousand journalists.

FIRST ORCHESTRA Office lst Semester 2nd Semester President Isabella Nichol Margaret Gabby Vice-President Margaret Gabby Secretary-Treasurer Harriet Gillette Harriet Gillette Librarian Richard Fidler Richard Fidler Director Emma R. Knudson The First Orchestra has been growing steadily for the past few years, both in number and in popularity. Elgin High School is proud of the work that this organ- ization has done. The First Orchestra is the most advanced organization of its kind in the high school. In order to become a member of the First Orchestra, Second Orchestra ex- perience is required. In this way the student entering the first organization has had previous experience in sightreading, rhythm and playing in a group. Knowledge of these is necessary before any orchestra can be succeessful. The work done in the First Orchestra is much more diflicult than any in the second organization. Once each year the orchestra presents a concert, assisted by the First Girls and the Boys Glee Clubs. These concerts are greatly enjoyed by the public. The orches- tra also gives at least one auditorium program during the school year. The members of the Orchestra participate in the annual May Day Festival which is held at St. Charles each year for the purpose of getting all the members of the music departments of the Fox Valley high schools together for a music festival. The orchestra also helps by playing for the class plays and for the graduation exercises. First Orchestra is organized much as any club. The members meet for practice first period every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. 130 THE FIRST BAND President Victor Bauman Vice-President Lois Hennings Secretary-Treasurer Grace Wittenberg Drum Major Allen Baumruck Director Mr. Reese The popularity of "Elgin's Own" has been increasing steadily for the past few years both in the number of students who join the band and in the number who en- joy the programs given by this organization. The First Band, like the First Orchestra, is made up only of students who have ability and also some experience. The necessary training and practice can be secured by playing with the Second Band. The First Band meets three times a week, on Mon- days, Wednesdays, and Fridays. When the weather is warm enough, the band prac- tices marching around the immediate neighborhood of the school. All students within hearing distance greatly enjoy the numbers the band plays in front of the building as a grand finale for the day's practice. The band plays at all home football games and one or two out of town games. This is greatly appreciated by the student body and the football teams because it shows that the band is backing the school. In return, the students support the con- cert which the band gives each spring. Each year the members of this organization attend the Fox River Valley May Festival and make a part of the Fox River Valley Band. This year the Band won the district contest at Naperville April 11, which entitled them to compete in the state contest April 25. They failed to place there, but hope to do so next year. 131 FUN 4.

Only those girls who have had previous chorus or glee club experience are eligible to join after making a successful tryout. The glee club sings outside of school as Well as in school, giving as many if not more outside programs than any of the other musical or- ganizations in E. H. S. The type of program the club presents merits its popularity. The First Girls Glee Club, together with the Boys Glee Club and the First Orchestra, presents a concert for the public every spring. This concert is greatly enjoyed by all those who attend, and it is becoming one of the outstanding musical events of the school year. Like the other first organizations, the First Girls Glee Club, meets regularly for practice on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. The Girls Glee Club members also participate in the Fox Valley May Festival held at St. Charles each year. 132 THE BOYS GLEE CLUB President Charles Stahl Vice-President John Biedermann Secretary-Treasurer George Lindoerfer Librarian James Walker Director Mr. Connell The Boys Glee Club was originally started to further an interest in singing among the boys in High School. As boys seen to be a little more bashful than girls when it comes to demonstrating their vocal powers, this musical organization started out with very few members. However, apparently all it needed was a start, for it has been growing rapidly ever since. The Boys Glee Club is the only organization in E. H S. in which the boys can receive any training in singing. There is no Second Glee Club nor Boy's Chorus. This Club, like the other first musical organi- zations in High School, practices one period each Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The Boys Glee Club gives its public program as a part of the an- nual Concert which is presented by the First Girls Glee Club, the Boy Glee Club and the First Orchestra The Glee Club usually appears at least once during the school year in an auditorium program.

Knudson A year or so ago, the Second Orchestra was the melting pot for all those aspiring young musicians who desired to play in the First Orchestra and had not quite enough experience to do so. Now, though it is still made up of those who have not had the experience and training of First Orchestra members, this organization is fast making a name for itself in the history of Elgin High School by the quality of the Work done. It is no longer anything of a disgrace to play in the Second Or- chestra because although the work is necessarily simpler, the finished product is very nearly as good as that of the First Orchestra on their more difficult numbers. The Second Orchestra is really the training field for First Orches- tra members, as it is here that many of them play with others for the first time. This organization meets one period on Tuesdays and Thurs- days. If a person plays an instrument well enough, and there is an opening in that particular section, then that member can be transferred to the First Orchestra. 134 THE SECOND BAND Director Mr. Reese The Second Band has a purpose similar to that of the Second Or- chestra, to furnish practice and experience for student musicians un- trained in group playing. In order to have a successful band it is nec- essary for its members to be well trained in rhythm and sight reading as well as the knowledge of their instruments. The Second Band is an excellent place to secure this training. Though some of the more unusual instruments such as the oboe, bassoon, and basses, are now taught in the grade schools, some students start learning how to play these instruments in high school. The Sec- ond Band furnishes good experience for beginners, even though they may never during their high school course have a chance to play in the First Band. The Second Band meets on Tuesday and Thursday every week. As the membership is increasing rapidly, it may soon become almost equal to the First Band in size, if not in the quality of the work it does. 135 I J fW M?

Knudson The Second Girls Glee Club is as necessary to the First Girls Glee Club as Latin I is to the study of Caesar's "Commentaries" If a student doesn't learn his vocabulary, declensions, and so forth, when he be- gins, he never has any idea what Caesar was writing about Cthat is, if he gets as far as Caesarj . If the girls didn't learn to sing "ah" up and down the scale in the Second Girls Glee Club, they would never be able to sing the more difficult songs the first organizatoin sings. Second Glee Club experience is required before anyone can be- come a member of the First Glee Club. It is in the second club that they receive the fundamental training in tone, diction, and part singing. This Glee Club meets twice a week, on Tuesday and on Thursday. No public concert is presented by the Second Girls Glee Club, but the training received in the regular practices is a very good foundation for further Vocal work. 136 I J: klw ' Z . GIRLS CHURUSESLQ- TREBLE CHOIR The Girls Choruses and the Treble Choir were started mainly because the in- struction given in them serves as a good foundation for the girls who may want to join the First or Second Girls Glee Club later. There are many girls in High School who would like very much to get in the Glee Clubs, but because of the lack of time or conflicts in their programs are unable to do so. As the Choruses and the Treble Choir meet on different days in the week, almost any girl who desires to, can join at least one of them. These organizations are quite popular among the girls, and many more girls are joining every year. 137 f' ffl' Q 'Ati Q U4 If ' Q-iv? Em S wr mf wel? .51 ,ki H, , N ', iz' WT 3 N la , C l v K...

In Persian schools the students continually talk out loud, but the privilige gives them little pleasure, for this is their Way of studying. We Americans would know how to enjoy such a privilege more thoroughly. India is a land of strange people and wild animals.

Sherwood. It is a play whose characters are members of the royal family. The royalty is delt with satirically throughout the whole play. The King prefers to play checkers with Phipps, the footman, to attending to the duties of his country. The Princess Anne wishes to break away from the royal family and marry the King's Secretary, Granton. The center of interest in the whole play is, of course, this love affair. They are getting things arranged between themselves just before the Queen leaves for America to get money for her country. The King learns of it and agrees to help them when the Queen leaves. While the queen is gone, a revolution begins. During this the King decides to give Anne and Granton their chance to run away. Anne decides to stay, as it is more exciting to watch the revolution. The King then over-rules Northrup and compromises with Fellman, a socialist, to stop the revolution. When the Queen returns, she arranges for the Princess Anne's marriage to Prince William of Gluck. The Prince learns that Princess Anne loves Granton, and reports it. Thus Granton is to be exiled. The King turns over the supreme power for ruling the nation to Fellman and Laker, and sends them all to the cathedral. Then he sends for Granton and marries him to Anne, sending them both to exile on the ship which Granton was to board alone. The cast was excellent, and they put the play over with a degree of perfection that deserves congratulations. The direction was in the hands of Miss Marge Biersach, whom we should all thank for the fine way in which she took charge. Mr. Kersten, with the help of many committees, was responsible for all scenery, stage effects, and lights. Miss Newall's art class helped with some of the painting. Miss Knudson, directing the Orchestra, furnished excellent music for the entire program. 145 , 'F' .n7 X 1 Us SZ 1 i p F, ia 5 Q as ,-., 'ft I 'am 7 Mess if :Q 5 s .

Gwendoline Fairfax Barbara Graves, Lois Hennings Cecily Cardew fWorthing's wardj Madeline Zimmer, Elyzabeth Hoffman Lady Bracknell Kathryn Byrne Miss Prism Jean Witherel On May 9 and 10, 1929, the Class of 1930 put themselves on the map with their presentation of "The Importance of Being Ernest" by Oscar Wilde. The plot centers around John Worthing, who goes from his country estate to London under the pre- tence of taking care of his nephew "Ernest" and there poses as the fictitious nephew, and J ohn's city friend, Algernon Moncrieff, who goes "Bunburying" in the country to visit an imaginary invalid friend by the name of Bunbury. John Worthing, alias Ernest, proposes to Gwendolyn Fairfax. She promptly goes to visit at his country home where she meets Cecily Cardew, John's ward. Cecily has just been proposed to by Algernon, who has come as John's wild young nephew Ernest. The girls cannot see how each one can be engaged to Ernest. They are in quite a mixup until Gwen- dolyn's mother, Lady Bracknell, with the aid of Miss Prism, Cecily's governess, clears up the mystery by announcing that John is Algernon's lost brother and that his real name is Ernest Moncriei. Thus the play ends with everybody happy. Other char- acters in the play were Dr. Chasuble, Miss Prism's "boy-friend" and the source of many humorous incidents, Lane, the butler at the Moncrieff homey and Merriman, the servant of John Worthing. Under the competent direction of Miss Biersach "The Importance of Being Ernest" was presented equally well with different casts playing each night. 146 ss is , J" gi X' 'f -' K 1? .NNEICHERT .i itil e-ilif ' - S THE CUMEDY CUNCERT Once again the Comedy Concert was presented by the Mirror Board and turned out a great success. Every stunt was enthusiastically received by the audience. The evening started with "The Toonerville Center Band" under the direction of Padercuski. They reminded you very much of the Little German Band. In "The Old Homestead" the villain attempts to buy the old homestead and marry the heroine. In the nick of time the hero appears, knocks the villain down, and assists him oli' the place. The hero in "The Marriage Proposal" proposes under great difficulties. He was hastily accepted after his proposal, twice interrupted, was made. A very pretty act on the program was singing and dancing, entitled "Zn-phyrs of Spring." Clogging and singing were featured in "The Story Book Ball" wherein Mother Goose characters enjoyed themselves a great deal. A pantomime entitled "The Tale of Two Chairs" was greatly enjoyed. Shakespc-are's famous characters were portrayed as they would look in modern times, in a skit entitled "Shakespearean Hash." It certainly was hash, as Juliet married Julius Caesar, Lady Macbeth was the wife of Shylock, and Hamlet and Cleopatra committed suicide together. In 'tlndian Signs" three men on a camping trip were scalped by Indians. When in the midst of their victory dance, "Big Brute," a boxer, appears and conquers the whole band. The football players in "Sissy Football" clapped their hands, skipped around, and played London Bridge. On the ten-yard line they took time out for tea. In "The Freshman" a young man deserving that title was sent by his fraternity, in a cap and nightie, to secure a "big girl's powder puff" from a girls' sorority house. "Sofapillio" was a tragedy, for Rutebagio and Spaghetto killed themselves in a very laughable duel over Sofapillio. The sorrow over their death caused the rest of the cast to lie down and die. The final act was the "Neophites." Three boys had to wash their hands in fire water, drink magic liquid, and have their hands filled with molten lead. One of them gave a formal discourse on a kiss, and another talked on the chemical properties of woman. Between acts two Seniors, John Biedermann and Charles Stahl, dressed as jar'- itors, acted as announcer-comedians. 147 K. X 2 A 'ip if -"' ss. g i Q SCHOLARSHIP We come to Elgin High to learn. While in school, we participate in so many activities that we sometimes forget about scholarship. As each year passes, the im- portance of this is recognized more. ' ROTARY MEDAL In Elgin High we have an honor roll, and all those receiving an average grade of ninety or above in their four subjects for the month are placed on it. Those who have been on the monthly honor roll during the entire semester are placed on the semester honor roll. For the last five years the Rotary Club has presented an Honor Medal to students who have been on the monthly honor roll for the year. A special auditorium program is arranged for the presentation. The honor roll increases every year. The list given on the following page gives the names of those receiving awards this year. THE 1922 HONOR MEDAL Each year at graduation two seniors, one boy and one girl, receive quite a single honor, the 1922 Honor Medal. This is presented by the Class of 1922, and eligibility for the award is based on scholarship, leadership, and athletic ability. Last year Lois Arnold and Clarence Oldham received these medals. THE LAFAYETTE MEDAL The Lafayette Medal, awarded to the best French student, is coined in the mints of France and comes indirectly from the French government. Dorothy Hooker re- ceived this medal last year. It came from an individual in France, but the American Legion has offered to furnish a medal every year from now on. This medal is pre- sented .in the same auditorium program as the one in which the Rotary medals are presented. 148 THE ROTARY CLUB HONOR MEDAL STUDENTS SENIORS DOROTHY BAU LORRAINE BoE'r'rcHER J UNIORS ROBERT BRIGHTMAN DONALD BUTLER :MARION CHURCHILL MARGARET FLEMING SOPHOMORES HOWARD SCHULTZ ' MAROIA MINK EDWARD 0'BRIEN FRESHMEN 29-19 DOROTHY HOOKER MARGUERITE WEED ARv1D FRAUTNICR ROBERT L1-:ACH CORNELIA PALMER ELSIE REAM JOY SCHULTZ VELDA FRAUTNICK fx 1' , . xiii!! 7 2 '55 ll 2 as I XXX dll- I 4.

HELMAN Moana DEBATIN In November tryouts were held to choose the most capable students for Elgin's debating squad. The squad then began to read and discuss the Big Six League de- bate question, "Resolved: That the direct primary system for the nomination of State and Federal officials should be abolished." The teams were under the capable supervision of Mr. Walter Wilson. Our first and only interscholastic debate was held March 20. The affirmative team, composed of Bruce Bowman, Mary Alice Hel- man, and Marelu Moore debated at homey the negative team, composed of Marian Jane Muntz, Robert Reid, and William Brady, debated at Rockford. Our affirma- tive team lost, and our negative team won. A new system was used this year. There was only one judge, called "Expert Judge," who ranked the teams as winning or losingg second ranking, according to speakersg and third ranking by percentages. The judge at home was Mr. John Casteel of the Department of Speech, Northwestern University, at Rockford, Professor Campbell of the Department of Speech, DeKalb. We were offered a consolation debate with Rockford, but the teams decided not to accept it. We are proud of our teams this year because they did excellent work, consider- ing that no member of the team had had any previous experience in debating. All members of the team will be back next year, and under the direction of Mr. Wilson we should win the conference. 150 SOCIETY SCHOOL DANCES The monthly, school dances, sponsored by the Student Council, are practically the only occasion on which all the students who so desire can get together for a good time.

There exists between the Japanese and us the kind of friendship We have been trying to form with the students of other nations, for it is the am- bition of every intelligent Japanese to come to an American school. They are lovers of beau- tiful things, and are fond of our class song and poem. Our snapshots and our calendar are very different from those the Japanese would use in an annual. To break the monotony of the long voyage across the Pacific we stop at the Philippines. Here, indeed, Americans need to be diplomatic in forming friendships. The Philippines would like to govern themselves without our help. When the E. H. S. "Friendship" glides into San Francisco Bay, its passengers have visions of a friendly world, knowing that their trip has contributed something toward this ideal.
