Elgin, Illinois FGREWCDIQD In Iune, this year of nineteen hundred thirty-five, Elgin celebrates one hundred years of growth from a small lone cabin to a complex modern city. A large part of the centennial celebration will be devoted to honoring Elginis pioneers. It has therefore seemed fitting to the staff of the Maroon of 1935 to choose a theme for this book which shall remind us always of their part in our development. Paralleling happenings of the first year in Elgin with the year in Elgin High School, the book makes use of excerpts from the fictitious journal of a pioneer to introduce the various divisions. In addition, a history of secondary education in Elgin has been used as the preface to show upon what basis rests the accomplishment of the class of 1935. The greatest dreams of Elgin's founders have been surpassed in the city of today, and we look forward to the future, hoping that prom- inence and leadership in industry, community welfare, and beauty will continue. DEDICATICDN When the school year comes to a close this Iune, Mr. Goble will have been principal of Elgin High School for thirty years. In all this time the school has ever been all-important to him. Even during vacations he con- tinued to visit his office, spending the best years of his life in making this school a worthy institution of learning Whose graduates would be accepted at any university they might choose. Never brusque, but always kind, sympathetic, and thoughtful, he has been completely unprejudiced in all his dealings with both students and teachers. If any one word can characterize him, it is fair-minded. Now that he has come to the end of his last year as our principal, let a common feeling of deepest appreciation unite us all as the Senior Class dedicates this, the Maroon of 1935, to Mr. William Luther Goble. w I CGNTENTS INTRODUCTION FALL Administ t Undercla LATE FALL Boys Spo Girls Spo WINTER Activities Boys Spo Girls Spo SPRING Boys Spo Girls Spo JLINE Seniors Summary f Y Patrons .ft f , .9 A-L is T if - 2- 1.-ff ga-1' .-free 'iiie' t'rff"5g'N i X ' . a f-3' I , f Lr - 4-'1,,f " ',, 1, x 1 , -5g3.,2A,Q. 4 f .

Everywhere surrounding them were the low lying hills, the rolling plains, and at their feet the sparkling river glided swiftly by. Because they were pleased and content with the beauty and fertility of the encircling lands, there they laid claims and built a small log cabin. From that lone log cabin a glorious city was to spring, for the river was the Fox, the brothers were Iames T. and Hezekiah Gifford, and the city is Elgin. On April sixth, 1835, the brothers borrowed the ox team of a nearby settler and plowed around a large tract of land on the east side of the river, thus establishing their claim. On this site Iames T. Gifford built a log cabin in order that his family might come and be with him as soon as possible. This cabin, besides being the first building ever erected on the original site of Elgin, was the first church, the Hrst schoolhouse, the first post-office, the first court of justice, and the first hotel. In the fall of 1835 the Gifford family came and settled in their new home. In this small log cabin, two years after the founding of Elgin, the Hrst lessons ever read by white man in Elgin began, Miss Harriet E. Gifford being the teacher who first "wielded the birch." The next year school was moved to the Elgin Chapel at Geneva and DuPage Streets, where 'LAunt Harriet" again taught the fundamentals of education. In 1841 Adin Mann and his wife followed as teachers, and in the same church Rev- erend Bolles later taught, while Mr. Mann taught in the new church of the Methodists. Besides these two, Miss Ballard taught in a small school south of the business sestion of town, for in these six years Elgin had grown rapidly into a large village. ' THE OLD BRICK The first regular school house was erected in 1844 by private subscription. There the students were tutored thoroughly by Miss Harvey and later by Paul R. Wright. This was a one-room building and is still intact today as a part of the store opposite the high school. The following year there was erected a two-story brick school house on the site of the present high school in order to meet the increasing demands of growing Elgin. Work through the grammar grades was offered in the first schools with opportunity for some students to go farther when they wished under the guidancei of individual teachers. In 1854 the schools came under the control of the city by the adoption of a new school law, allowing taxes to be levied for free schools. It was the birth of the public schools, and Elgin was the first community in Illinois to adopt this measure. This action was taken at a meeting which adjourned within five minutes before the opposition came. No one, had a chance to defeat it. Edmund Gifford was elected the Hrst superintendent of the schools. Three years later the new brick school was erected on Kimball Street, and F. S. Heywood was named the first principal. Here a part of the second floor was definitely set aside as a high school room, and advanced work was offered with regular instruction. K Ten years after the "new brickv was completed, a three-year course was adopted which included all the studies that were taught in high schools at that time. Again in 1869 the schools were thoroughly regraded by the then superintendent, Charles F. Kimball, who prepared a systematic and complete course of study including a two-year course each for the primary and intermediate departments, I1 three-year course in the grammar school, and a four-year course in the high school. In 1871 a new study, vocal music, was taught by W. W. Kennedy. Again the course of study was revised and now it was published in pamphlet form. There were eleven grades from primary through the high school. Two courses in the O THE NEW BRICK high school, the English and classical, each requiring four years for completion, were adopted. The year 1872 was a memorable one, for on Iune 27,of that year the first high school graduating class, consisting of the Misses Helen C. Kimball, Euphemia A. Martin, and Iulia A. DuBois, held its exercises in the Opera House. Each read a lengthy essay. The following year the control of the schools passed from the city to the state under the new general school law, the citizens having voted the change. The Hrst real high school building was erected in 1883 on the central part of the present location, just east of the "old brick," which was later torn down. Although part of this new building was used for grammar grades at first, it was not long until all twenty-Five of its rooms had gradually been taken over for high school classes. The Hrst Mirror was issued October, 1897. The Mirror was then a monthly publication, a magazine with a stiff paper cover, mainly literary. In 1900 the proceeds from this were diverted into at very worthwhile project, a scholarship loan fund. In 1901 this amounted to 15300 and was used by two students. Today it amounts to over S3000 and has been used by over sixty-five students. That same year the first true football team was organized and at the same time a club was formed for athletics. At that time a variety of courses and a wider Held of subjects were offered to the stu- dents. The students could select from three courses: Latin, German, and English or commercial. There were now nine teachers in high school with E. C. Pierce as principal. Though just inaugurated, the work done that year by the commercial department, which included bookkeeping, stenography, typing, and arithmetic, was very encouraging. Music and drawing were added as minor subjects, although not more than two credits 4 THE OLD HIGH SCHOOL of these were allowed for graduation. As an outgrowth of this addition the glee clubs took form. Something new for commencement was started when the class of 1900 voted to put on a play instead of the regular commencement program. They selected for their play "The Merchant of Venicef, The following class chose "Midsummer Night's Dream." Two new departments were started in 1903. An official from the watch factory agreed to supply the material for a manual training course if the Board of Education would allow the expense of a teacher and the up-keep. This was done, and as the Elgin Woman's Club offered to supply the laboratory equipment, a course of domestic science was adopted at the same time. Plans for the erection of the high school building as we know it today were begun in 1905. At that time Franklin School was being used for the overHow students from high school. That summer, ground was broken for the new building. The construction was rushed and soon there arose a beautiful two-story structure. The old high school building was still in use, but at the middle of the year classes began to be held in the new building as well. Soon, however, it was seen that more room would be needed with the rapid growth of the school, and another story was added. Next the old building was torn down, the gym and auditorium constructed in its place, and the west wing added. That same year the graduating class published the first "Marconi, containing pictures of the faculty, of the seniors, and of such activities as debating, glee clubs, orchestra fthe first formed in Elgin High Schoolj, football, and baseball. Three years previous the "Mirror" had changed from a monthly to a weekly publication, and was more "newsy" than before. The courses offered in the high school were: English, general, foreign language, science, business, normal training, household arts, and a two-year business course. THE PRESENT HIGH SCHOOL Great interest was shown by the students in the World War. The study of the Ger- man language and everything connected with Germany was abandoned. There was even military training, and a company of eighty-two boys was formed. Many high school graduates participated in the War, some giving their lives. An important memorial was left to the school when the class of 1922 gave the money to present medals to the most outstanding boy and girl from each graduating class. ln 1924 the Student Council, the first form of student government, was initiated. They devised a student handbook for the use of incoming freshmen as well as for those already in high school. Increased interest in extra-curricular activities was shown by the presence of the Girls Athletic Club, bands, the orchestra, glee clubs, English, Latin, French, and Spanish clubs. Auto mechanics, office training, and journalism were new courses adopted about this time. In 1926 an honor point system, in use today, was devised in order that extra-curricular activities might be more evenly spread among the students. The same year the old wooden stairs were replaced by steel and cement. It bcame necessary in 1931 to build a junior high school on the west side to take care of the increasing enrollments. Some day there may also be such a school on the east side. Perhaps, too, we shall soon have a much needed new gymnasium and auditorium, a topic which is now being discussed by members of the Board of Education. Thus we see how Elgin High School has grown to be one of the most outstanding schools in northern Illinois, joining with other large high schools to form a Big Six and next year a Big Seven through which all interscholastic activities are held. It is a school of which to be proud, graduation from it is recognized all over the country, its graduates have proved its worth by their outstanding accomplishments.

The citizens of the city of Elgin are justifiably proud of their system, which is noted for its efficient teachers and the line quality of the work done by the students. Great credit for this excellent school system should go to the Board of Education, whose members are elected by the interested citizens of Elgin. The educational advancement of the youth of the city is the aim foremost in their minds. The Board now consists of nine members with Edwin Gardner as president. This year the Board voted that special emphasis be laid on the study of the Constitution of the United States. Every student taking history or social problems was required to know the facts relative to the framing of the Constitution, its establishment, its important provisions, and its long and glorious history. Another important project of the Board of Education was the installation in the high school of a sprinkling system which adds to the students' safety and decreases the insurance premium. In addition to these extra projects there is the more or less routine work, including the repair work in the school buildings, the appointment of teachers, the selection of new text books, the planning of a budget, and the controlling of all school properties. To all its tasks the Board gives the most careful consideration and attention. 16 THEODORE SAAM Superintendent B. S. Lenox College M. A. University of Iowa Columbia University T. A.

Wheaton College Universities of Chicago, Colo- rado, and Southern California ADMINISTRATION AND ADVISERS Elgin High School is capably directed by Mr. Saam, the superintendent, and Mr. Goble, the principal. It is their aim to make the hours spent in school of the greatest value and interest to teachers and students. Mr. Saam supervises the whole public school system in Elgin, while Mr. Goble devotes his entire time and effort to the high school. Mr. Goble's interest in the students does not end with graduation, for he never ceases to be interested in their success and advance- ment. In spite of great Financial difficulties and handicaps, Mr. Saam with the assistance of the Board of Education has maintained the high standards of Elgin High School. The advisory staff works in conjunction with Mr. Saam and Mr. Goble. Their purpose is to help students become adjusted to their surroundings. Mrs. Drysdale gives kindly, sympathetic advice to all the girlsg and she is ably assisted by Miss Pratt. Mr. Larsen, the boys' adviser, is always ready to give them friendly and valuable help. An- other duty of these faculty members is to check carefully the students' credits and courses to ascertain that they are taking the required subjects. The work of the advisers is very val- uable to teachers and students between whom it promotes good will and co- operation. MARGARET E. NEWMAN MARGE BIERSACH Head of Department B. A.

University of Chicago University of Chicago ENGLISH Nothing is more valuable than the mastery of Englishg for after leaving high school, we are judged in the social and business world by the way we speak. Thus one of the foremost aims of the English department is to help pupils to think clearly and logically and to communicate their thoughts in clear, simple, effective English. In reading and literature the students are encouraged to enrich their experience through a wide range of reading in recognized Fields of human interest which appeal to their tastes and abilities. To build up the standards of literary appreciation and to kindle the imagination that pupils may achieve those outlooks upon life which make for good citizenship is another aim of this department. To give opportunity for development of individual tastes and preferences, a choice is given in the junior year of journalism, dramatics, public speaking, or the types of literature. . E. C.

Illinois State Normal University University of Illinois SCIENCE One of the First aims of the science department is to teach the students to take more interest in the common things in their surroundings. The subjects offered include geography, biology, chemistry, physics, and general science. In biology the students study the origin and life-history of plants and animals. They learn to realize the power of nature, which changes a little seed into a towering tree and an ugly worm into a gorgeous moth. Chemistry is the science which treats of the composition of substances and the laws which govern their relations. The young chemists learn how to change poisonous gases and other ele- ments into useful compounds. Recent- ly many educational films have been used to make the work more interest- ing and more easily understood. Because science covers a wide range of information, this department oliers courses which interest everyone and aim to make the student better fitted to take his place in the world. P. E.

A. LLOYD University of Illinois Northwestern University In the industrial arts department courses are offered which develop the natural abilities of the students. It teaches a profitable and enjoyable use of leisure time as well as training the pupils in handicrafts that may lead to a vocation. In the cooking classes Miss Iohnson instructs the girls how to cook wholesome, delicious foods and also how to plan and prepare well-balanced meals. Recently many boys have learned the culinary art in these classes. In the sewing classes the students learn how to make attractive garments that are becoming to them in style and color, and they are taught the value of being well-dressed. Another important aim of these classes is to teach the art of making a home beautiful and comfortable. Thus one can readily see that these courses in do- mestic science are useful and practical. Courses for the boys, including wood-shop and mechanical drawing, are olfered too. The manual training classes sharpen oneis powers of obser- vation and teach valuable lessons in accuracy, order, and patience. In wood- shop the boys learn how to construct useful and attractive pieces of furniture for the home. Mechanical drawing, a subject necessary in an engineering course, teaches neatness and accuracy. an Roscor: S. CARTWRIGHT Head of Department B. A. Simpson College M. A.

These subjects dealing with human relationships are designed to help the student to un- derstand and appreciate what constitutes good citizenship. In the history classes, courses are offered which acquaint us with the activities of mankind from the beginning of recorded time to the present age. Classes in United States history study the development of our nation and discuss current happenings. Economics is the science of making a living. Today, when new theories and economic plans are being evolved and the entire economic order is be- ing tested, this subject is especially in- teresting. This year in the social prob- lems classes the study of our govern- ment and citizenship constitutes the greater part of the program. W. A. STUMPF Head of Department B. S. University of Illinois M.

Commerce State Univer- sity of Iowa The business courses of Elgin High School provide sufficient training for the student to pre- pare him for an initial position in the business world upon graduation. The curriculum offers a variety of subjects which take in several phases of business. Bookkeeping, business arithmetic, salesmanship, commercial law, stenography, typing and office training all prepare the student for a business career. Typing students get actual experience in positions on the staff of both the school paper and the annual. Stenography, bookkeeping, and office training pupils do considerable clerical work for the teachers and for people Outside the school. Moreover, the business courses are aids in the development of a pupil's character. By becom- ing accurate and reasonably rapid in his work, he forms habits which will be of value to him through life.

ENGELBRECHT Columbia College of Expression Ph. B. University of Wisconsin University of Wisconsin VEGA MOREHOUSE B. A. Drake University Alliance Francaise, Paris M. A. Drake University The culture of the Old World is represented by the foreign language department. In all the classes-French, German, and Latin-the lives and customs of the people are studied along with the language itself. Our French and German classes correspond with the students studying Eng- lish in France and Germany. The purpose of this is to encourage internationalism. By writing and presenting original conversations, the students of the French and German classes become trained to comprehend and speak these modern languages. Latin is not a spoken language, but it is of great value in our conversation and reading. Over three-fourths of the English words are derived from Latin, and one-half of them are used in ordinary conversation. Almost all of the newly coined words needed in this complex age are taken from the Latin. CLAUDIA V. ABELL ALMA Scnocx Normal Art, Chicago Academy Mztsic Supervisor of Fine Arts B. M.

Besides training the students for a musical profession, these organizations teach them to appreciate good music. Several Hnished concerts have been presented by this department under the able direction of Miss Schock, the new supervisor. The art classes offer the students opportunities for creative work which may open the door to success in later life. Besides the fundamentals of art so necessary for successful painting and sculpture, the students are led to a finer appreciation of the beautiful. WILDA L.

Northwestern University University of Chicago PHYSICAL EDUCATION To develop the body, as well as the mind, so that one may lead a happier, healthier life is the aim of all modern schools. Physical education classes assist in this work and play an important part in the development of the whole personality. The program in general consists of classes during school hours and an in- tramural program after school. Both boys and girls participate in games and contests in volleyball, baseball, basket- ball, hockey, and tennis. This year in the girls, gym classes lessons in social dancing were given. The girls enjoyed these lessons because it gave them an opportunity to learn the proper technique of dancing as well as the new steps. A class in which boys also could learn dancing was held in the gym once a week. ADAH A. PRATT MARY A. PETERS Head Of Department B. A. Iowa State Teachers Col- B. A. Wheaton College le?-Te , .

Since knowledge of mathematics is required in most occupations, it is needed by every success- ful individual. This science develops the functioning of the mind through clear thinking and concentration. The department emphasizes practical application in all types of problems to be faced in the future as well as the actual knowledge of mathematics. Each succeeding year advanced mathematics are being selected by an increasing number of stu- dents who are aware that chemistry requires advanced algebra, and architecture, solid geometry. For engineering and its various branches, such as navigation and aviation, advanced algebra, geometry, and trigonometry are essential. HELEN L. REVETT CLARA A.

During his youth he lays the foundation for future health and happiness which are of paramount importance for success in life. The nurses of the health department of Elgin High School strive to promote the health of the students by discussing with them their various health prob- lems, stressing preventative rather than curative measures. They recommend, when in doubt, the advice of the phy- sician and dentistg and they stress the importance of a yearly medical exam- ination and dental care. CARRIE K. WILLIFORD Universities of Chicago, Illinois, and Wisconsin EVELYN L. BOETTCHER Secretary-Registrar ELVAJEAN HALL Lzbrarian Assistant Librarian Gail Bordon Public Library, B. A. Oberlin College Elgin University of Wisconsin School Lake Forest College LIBRARY In a school library the paths of teachers and students meet. For here references on practically every subject, current magazines, encyclopedias, fiction, and biography are available. Students come to the library not only to secure information on required subjects, but also to delve into the past with famous authors and re-live the lives of characters in their books. The many volumes of exciting adventure make one forget the common, everyday occurrences. A library is a necessity in every school, and the Elgin High School library contains an unusually fine collection of material. This material is easily found with the willing aid of the librarians. EVA MAE JOHNSON Assistant Secretary OFFICE Miss Evelyn Boettcher and Miss Eva Iohnson are in charge of all clerical work in Elgin High School. Few students realize the importance of the work that is done in this office. To keep a careful account of each studentis scholastic record and to adjust his program are only a few of the secretaries' duties. They also check period absences and perform other lesser, but neverthe- less important, duties. All those of the student body who have come in contact with them and have received their willingly given assistance, appreciate their courteous help. Library UHCIZFCIGSSITIQF1 - e 9B Back row: G.

LOGAN Miss DAVERY President Secretary Vice-President Adviser JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY Ji' In the summer of 1932, four hundred and ninety-eight boys and girls eagerly looked toward their new experience in high school, one hundred and nine of these entered the Abbott School while the other three hundred and eighty-nine entered the Elgin High School. The first year the class was represented on the Student Council by Gordon Adams, Erwin Mueller, Robert Waggoner, and Donald Barker. A number of these freshmen were active in sports, dramatics, music, and debate. As sophomores, Gordon Adams, Robert Waggoner, Iean Rogers, and George Kromhaut were Student Council members. In this second year Ruth Frisby and Robert Waggoner found places on the debate squad. The fall of ,34 called one hundred nine students from Abbott School, its first class, to join the ranks ofthe juniors at the Elgin High School. At the beginning of this year, the class elected George Kromhout, presidentg Ruth Logan, vice-president, and Louise Miller, secretary. This class was represented by Billy Newlin, Betty Davis, Gordon Adams, Albert Samuelson, and Paul Hersch on the Council. In school ath- letics Wilbur Walters captained the lightweight basketball team, and the junior girls' basketball team won the tournament trophy. The junior class play was the success of the year, which was climaxed by the prom. These three years have been most interesting, and there is still one more happy year to look forward to. 40 fi ?QJ7ff.2f QAM! 4 - 1--Ce' L zi- ,..l- Jr I Late Fall These early pioneers had much to do that developed them physically.

Maine was the next team that invaded Elgin. After a hard fought battle, Maine was the victor 13-0. The following week, the Maroons traveled to Maywood to go down before a strong Proviso eleven 19-7. It was in this game that Captain "Buda Geister sustained a broken jaw. Elgin played its first conference game at Rockford. Although the Maroons outplayed the Rabs in the first half, the powerful Furniture City eleven, led byltheir captain, Leo Stasica, came back in the second half to score two touchdowns and make the score 21-12. The Maroons got off to a Hying start in the Ioliet game, but the boys from the Prison City made a beautiful come-back in the second half and took home a 13-7 victory. The Adamsmen fought a losing but stubbornly contested battle with Freeport, the final score being 14-0 in favor of the Pretzels. The Maroons succumbed to West Aurora by a score of 6-0. The game was played in a cold rain and on a muddy field. The last game of the season found the Maroons going down in defeat to a powerful East Aurora team 19-7. It was a great blow to Elgin when we lost the services of Captain Geister as a result of a fractured jaw. "Bud,' was Elgin's only triple threat man. Erwin Graf, who did most of Elgin's scoring during the season, was elected All-Conference end. K'Moose" also received honorable mention on the All-State Eleven. 42 f sp- f - f Top row: H.

The rest of the team was made from a few of last year's "B" team, some track men, and a few bas- ketball players. He whipped this green material into a team which placed second in the Big Six conference. The lights, due mainly to inexperience, lost their first four games. The first game of the season was played against Geneva. Elgin lost 6-0. The next pre-season game, which was played in a sea of mud and rain, was dropped to Maine Township High School with a score of 6-0. The following week the ponies were set back by Proviso 12-6, but not without putting up a hard Fight. Elgin traveled to Rockford for their first conference game. The great defensive work of Captain Glenn McTavish stood out prominently, but even this was not enough to keep the lights from losing Z0-6. The next week the Elgin Lightweights climbed right back into the conference race by defeating Ioliet 13-0. For their third conference start, Elgin played Freeport and won by a score of 13-O. lt was the next week that Elgin received the heartbreaking setback. The game was played at West Aurora in a downpour of rain. Elgin lost the game in the last minute, when West Aurora blocked a punt and ran for the only touchdown of the game. The final score was West High 6, Elgin 0. For their last game the ponies triumphed over East High 24-7. Throughout the season the outstanding work of Captain McTavish, 'KChuckl' Thiel, and Howard Grant in the line and "Willie" Kollman, Russ Allen, "Bill" McDonough, and "Chuck', Haller in the back- lield stood out. 43 ELGIN ELGIN ELGIN ELGIN ELGIN ELGIN ELGIN ELGIN 0 ,M.. ..........................,..,,...., - .....,.........,,,..,........ ..

Theprimary purpose of these teams is to teach the fundamentals of football to the underclassmen and to give the boys as much experience in games as possible' The "Bn heavies, while not winning many games this year, did gain much eX- perience in playing the game and had the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of football. They played Barrington, Proviso Township of Maywood, Crystal Lake, and McHenry. The players that stood out as being the most likely prospects for the 1935 varsity are Iack Schmidt, Clayton Metzger, Albert Luepke, Norman Klemm, and Gus Papageorge. Mr. Krafft is the coach of the "Bn heavies. The "B" lights engaged in games with Glenbard of Glen Ellyn and Crystal Lake and played two games with Mooseheart. Probably the most outstanding prospects for next season's "A" team are Ralph Geldmacher, Lawrence Moyer, Ted Wyman, David Adams, and Howard Flora. Mr. Myers is the coach of this team.

THE COACHING STAFF Perhaps no position in the school has so much direct bearing and influence on a boy's life as does that of a coach. A coach's duty is not only to turn out Winning teams but also to guide and inspire the players to a right start in life. Elgin is exceedingly fortunate in having men who have fulfilled this to the last degree. Elgin,s coaching staff consists of five men of the finest character and ability. Mr. Adams is the athletic director of the school, as Well as heavyweight football and basketball coach. Mr. Roggen has been very successful as track and lightweight coach. Mr. Krafft and Mr. Myers have capably assisted the coaching of the heavies and lights respectively. Mr. Renner has charge of golf, tennis, and intramural sports, which offer recereation for those not participat- ing in interscholastic competition. C E. Adams Arthur Roggen Iohn A. Krafft M C.

JUINIICDR-SENIGR HQCKEY Cur junior and senior teams, because they are composed of girls with much experience, gen- erally manage to come out on top in inter-class competition. These teams arrange signals, work out plays, and adopt certain studied styles and technique of play. This year the upper classrnen went through the season undefeated. Then they met each other, and three historic battles followed. The juniors won the first game, the seniors, the second, and the juniors won the third game by a score of l-0, thus giving them the championship. 50 Back row: E. Minster, I. Beck, G. Muntz, E.

FRESHMAN-SOPHQMQRE HOCKEY The timidity usually 'shown by underclassmen for actively entering any extra-curricular program does not hold true in the Held of girls athletics. This year we discovered that freshmen and sophomores had as many applicants for positions, and played as vigorously as either upper class team. Because of inexperience, these girls do not usually produce the championship teams. Much of their practice time is spent in learning technique instead of actual play. 51 Miss Kettering, Miss Logan, Miss Morehouse. GIRLS ATI-l LETICS The girls of Elgin High this year made great advancement in the realization of the splendid opportunities for mental and physical development that athletics bring. More girls took active part in the sports program than ever before, and the resulting play in any field reached a higher degree of excellence than heretofore. However, the girls could never have accomplished these ends by themselves Without the careful and inspiring instruction of their supervisors. They provide the incentive, the ideas, and the opportunities for our girls. Miss Logan, head of the athletic department, teaches all gym classes and supervises sophomore and senior teams. Because she comes into contact with freshmen and sopho- mores in her classes, she is the person who urges these sometimes timid ones to take part. It was through her efforts that the field-house was built and that play days for Elgin were started. Miss Kettering coaches freshman and junior teams. She herself is a fine athlete and encourages everyone by joining in activities and demonstrating such excellent play that all of the girls are inspired. Miss Morehouse is the tennis coach. Tennis was not a major sport until she ar- ranged matches with other schools and organized inter-class tournaments. 52 WX2,,Qf,O2J' M42 MQ aw if ' Qgy -viz! -s-g...0'5-'Q--i"tn1 f-Ll.: --w-3- .Q--f X414 :gf"Q Winter The hardy pioneers of Elgin did not have all workg they still could play games and seek other Ways of entertainment during the long months of winter.

Miss Marge Biersach The E. H. S. Players organization seeks to give its Ten Minutes Under An Umbrella members a better knowledge of the theater and a chance to participate actively in theater activities. Not only those students interested in acting are eligible for club membership, but also those interested in make-up, props, business, scenery, lights, and costumes, since all these activities are essential to any production. This year members were given the opportunity of appearing before the club in one-acts and scenes from longer plays. The theater in America, Russia, China, and Germany was discussed and scenes from plays by playwrights of each country were presented. Radio drama was discussed as a new trend in the theater, and one meeting was devoted to how to choose movies and what to criticize. In the fall Mrs. Donald Norton of the Cpen Book Shop reviewed the play. "Mary of Scot- landf, by Maxwell Anderson. Other outside speakers spoke on Shakespeare and the production of his plays, and on the radio. In the spring the club sponsored the annual Night of One Acts. They also contributed to the Comedy Con- cert with a skit entitled l'Ten Minutes Under an Um- brellaf' 54 A Sign Unto You Back row: R. Warner, B. Manougian, C. Caul, B. Davis, R. Knodle, H.

One of the best ways to acquire this is to partake in dramatic activity. To interest young people in dramatics, to teach them a few principles of technique, and to give them as much stage experience as possible is the worthy purpose of the Mask and Bauble, a fresh- man-sophomore dramatic organization. Bi-monthly programs consist of the study of panto- mime, impersonations, puppets, stage movements, and stage business. This club, especially for a junior organ- ization, is very active. This winter they produced a Christmas play, HA Sign Unto Youf, by Iean Latham, which was given in the auditorium and also for out- side organizations. As in other years the club presented a one-act play, 'KNeighbors,w by Zona Gale. This play Was directed by Miss Helen Iocelyn, the new co-sponsor of the club. The year was satisfactorily concluded with the an- nual Mask and Bauble picnic. 55 Back row: R. Rovelstacl, P. Ansel, R. Elvey, C. Kahler, N. Burstein, P. Hubbell, I. McCarthy, B. Banker, C. Caul, N.

Miss Hazel Linkhelrl, Miss Caroleen Haller The Latin club, officially known as Inter Nos, aims to give students background work that can not be covered By the River Styx in class. This includes information concerning Roman mythology, places, and people and their amusements, holidays, customs, costumes, etc. The particular objec- tive for this year was to show the relation of Latin to practical life, for after all, a language is of little value if it has no practical connection with life and its prob- lems. This year's programs have been of especial value. They have been planned to help members of Inter Nos to understand more fully the English language, English literature, and the romance languages through the study of the Latin language. Roman influence in decorative design and Latin as required in the profession were also brought out. At one meeting the club was taken-men- tally, not physically-on a trip to Rome. The club was well represented in the annual Comedy Concert by a skit taking place in Hades on the shore of the river Styx. 56 Back row: R. Keegan, E. Kirkpatrick, R. Struckman, G. Boettcher, R.

The German club fto the initiate, "Der Deutsche Vereinwb has always been successful in its ob- jective, that is, to acquaint its members with the lives of noted German musicians, scientists, artists, authors, and their contributions to Germany and to the world. Well built and varied programs are a feature of the club. In the past year the club has enjoyed moving pictures on Germany, group singing, folk dancing, and original conversations. One meeting was devoted to an outside speaker, Miss Eleanor Volberding, who had re- cently traveled in Germany. Another meeting was given over to Mozart, the famous German composer. As usual, the club contributed entertainingly to the Comedy Concert in the spring. The year came to a fitting close with a banquet in honor of the 150th anniversary of the great German poet, Schiller. 57 DEI? DEUTSCI-IE VEREIN Folk Dancing Back row: B. Banker, L. Lenz, L.

Miss Vega Morehouse Singing French Songs The purpose of any language club should be to fur- ther the interest and knowledge of the student in that particular language and country. Remembering this, Le Cercle Francais plans its program accordingly. During the year just past, members of Le Cercle were both entertained and edified by movies about Paris and the French countryside. Although concerned primarily with France, the club members were interested guests at a German club meeting which featured a talk on Ger- many by Miss Eleanor Volberding, a recent traveler there. At another meeting a report was given on New Year customs of France, and at another, a French play was given. Reports on French music, French composers, and Easter customs also drew the attention of the club during the year. To add variety and "spice" to the pro- grams cross-word puzzles, games, songs, and conversa- tions in French were introduced. l The year was concluded with the annual club break- , fast. 58 Back row: A.

Miss Mary Peters, Miss Hortense Wilson To answer many questions for which there is neither time nor place in class is the function of the Mathe- matics Club. This organization is primarily for the stu- dent who wants to think and to enlarge his own knowl- edge. The membership is open to any student who has completed Algebra I with an average grade of eighty or above. The program for the Hrst part of the school year was built around the construction of a table of logarithms. Since such a table is one of the most valuable tools of the scientist, it is well to learn something of the amount of work necessary to construct itg besides, any tool is easier to use if one understands how it is constructed. For the last half of the year simple trigonometry was the subject for consideration. Some Held trips were taken to supplement this program. 59 Proving Two Equals One Back row: D. Richoz. M.

Rather, in this age of enlightenment, they are encouraged to improve themselves. One means of encouragement is by organizations such as the Girls Science Club, which stimulates thought and inquiry into the wonderful mysteries of science. The ur ose of this club as set forth in its constitu- . . P up . . tion is to create, promote, and extend an interest in the field of science." This organization meets once a month durin home room eriod. All members are re uired g P ' D Cl to have had one ear ot eneral science, al febra, and Y Us t 2, . geometry, and to be studying chemistry or physics. Every member is required to participate in the club programs at least twice a year. At the meetings inter- esting reports concerning eminent scientists, recent dis- coveries, and other important phases of scientific progress are heard and discussed. 60 Back row: G. Soper, E.

At two of the meetings Willard Turner, chemist, and C. N. Kappen, manager of Champion Spark-Plug Com- pany, spoke. This club is one of the most active in school. In the fall they brought a liquid air demonstrator here. Ad- mission to this lecture was charged and the proceeds used to buy films and movie apparatus for the school. Other money for this project was earned by sponsoring Friday morning movies. Out-of-town basketball games were also broadcast to the school auditorium and admission charged for this.

An equally important object is to develop a bet- ter personal relationship among students and between student and teacher. The club seeks to include enjoyable and worthwhile entertainment features in its programs. Although the interests of the club are along commercial lines, music proved very entertaining at one of the meetings. Mr. W. B. Newlin, general manager of the local S. S. Kresge Five and Ten Cent Store, spoke to the members on the Kresge organization and the qualifications of employees. Mr. H. G. Lawrence discussed at another meeting the qualifications sought by industrial leaders of the country in looking for human material. All programs were not furnished by outside speakers, however.

The club meets during the winter months at the Na- pmctice Shooting at the Armory tional Guard Armory. During the summer, it meets at the outdoor range of the Elgin Rifle Club. Safety is stressed at all meetings. Instructors are al- ways present, and maintain range discipline in requir- ing all boys not actually firing to keep bolts open and rifles in a rack and to stay at a safe distance from the firing line. Each member is instructed in the safety code issued by the National Rifle Association. Opportunity is provided for members to Win medals as they progress. Medals are issued as follows: pro- inarksman, marksman, marksman first class, sharp- shooter, expert, and distinguished riHeman. Rifle marksmanship provides an excellent activity for the boy who needs association with other students and an outside interest. 64 Back row: R, VanNatta, I. Beck, D. Dewey, B. Beckman, M.

GIRL RESERVES The Girl Reserves are divided into two groups, the Iunior Blue Tri-Y for underclassmen, and the Senior Blue Tri-Y for upperclassmen. These two clubs promote a feeling of friend- ship and endeavor to instill into the girls high ideals of life. In this past year the Senior Tri-Y considered vocations at their meetings. Special speakers were obtained, and movies were enjoyed at one meeting. One joint meeting of all the Hi-Y's and Try-Y's was held in the winter. The Girl Reserves also gave two teas and sponsored two dances. 66 SENIOR HI-Y Back row: R. Raywood, R. Keegan, D. Garber, R. Krueger, VV. Boyer, F. Miller. Fourth row: G. Sipple, R. Kalk F.

The program emphasizes the out-of-door life and is planned to give girls a practical knowledge of health, home-making, First Aid work, and handicraft. The activities aim through comradeship to develop initiative, self-control, self-reliance, and unseliish service to others. The outstanding activity of the high school troop was the furnishing of Gifford Cabin. This memorial was built by townspeople who contributed their services free, and the Girl Scouts, not to be outdone in any worth- while project, provided tables, benches, a wood-box, and curtains as their share of the work. Besides this activity, the Girl Scouts assisted with the Day Nursing Christmas Party and sponsored the Penny Carnival. 69 Kneeling: R. Swain, A. Miller, C. Haller, G. Soper. Standing: D. Freed, G.

JUNIOR CLASS PLAY Twice on Friday,' May 25, 1934-once for a special childrenis matinee and again for an evening per- formance-did the curtain ring up on "Tom Sawyer," the first theatrical venture of the class of 1935. The house was large and appreciative, and the play was a financial as well as an artistic success. The story is the well-known tale of Tom Sawyer. In the lirst act he is commanded to whitewash his Aunt Polly's fence. As everyone knows, he inveigles his friends into doing it for him and enjoys himself immensely instead of being punished by being commanded to do an unpleasant task. P. Leach, L. Kowert, K.

At their meeting place near the graveyard, Tom and Huck witness Injun Ioe's crime, which is later blamed on Muff Potter. Aghast, the boys hurry away to the island as planned. The townspeople think the boys have been drowned and prepare for their funerals. The boys return home, listen to the First part-of the services, and then present themselves to astonished friends and relatives. Tom tells the true story of the murder and reveals Injun Ioe as the murderer. The play ends with the Finding of a buried treasure by Tom and Huck.

SENIOR CLASS PLAY PRESENTED Feeling quite well acquainted with theater business after so success- fully presenting "Tom Sawyer' in their junior year, the class of 1935 set out to produce another success in their senior year by choosing "Merely Mary Anni' by Israel Zangwill as their play. The play centers around Mary Ann, a country-bred orphan who works for Mrs. Leadbatter, slovenly keeper of a boarding house in South London. In the Hrst act Lancelot, the hero, who is a composer, is reunited with his old friend Peter. Memories of the old days cause him to become sentimental, and he falls in love with Mary Ann.

Several years later when Lancelot has become a composer, the two are reunited, and the play ends happily.

Every year the two dramatic clubs of Elgin High School sponsor an evening of one act plays. This year the program included a fantasy, a ufolksyi' play, and a snappy modern one. "Manikin and Minikinn was given before the curtain with screens and arnusingly painted with mirror and candlesticks to represent a mantel top as a background. The other two plays each utilized the whole stage. The setting for "The Neighbors" was suitably old-fashioned and small-towng while that for "Evening Dress Indispensable" was dis- tinctly modern. 74 BIG SIX DEBATE TEAM Back row: I. McCarthy, G.

Cartwright enjoyed, this year, one of the most successful programs in the history of debating in Elgin High. V An extensive schedule including several tournaments, a number of non-decision debates with other schools, and a group of inter-squad debates for civic clubs, was carried out. ln the tournament at Drake University, the Hrst of the year for Elgin, the team lost in the semi-Finals. For the second consecutive year Elgin won the Big Six tournament, and the group gained another Hrst place in the DeKalb district tournament.

DEBATE This yearis debate question concerned federal aid for education, and it proved to be one of great interest. The various speech activities comprised a very important part of the forensic work this year. Elgin had entrants in the speech contests of the State Literary Association, the Big Six Conference, and the National Forensic League. In the Big Six literary meet, Elgin tied with Freeport for first place. Woodrow Boyer won first place in original oratory, and Robert Wag- goner Won second place in extemporaneous speaking. A new idea was inaugurated this year when Miss Elvajean Hall founded the Freshman- Sophomore Debate Club. The underclassmen showed a great interest in the study work and actual debating done by the group. FRESHMAN-SOPHOMORE DEBATE CLUB Back row: Miss Hall, S. Burstein, H. Schaefer, B. Elvey, C.

M iss Adah Pratt The Student Council is a body composed of four members from each class elected annually by the separate classes. The president is chosen by the vote of the entire student body. Council members have certain routine duties which include supervising in the halls throughout the day to prevent confusion during class periods and to safeguard lockers from possible petty thieving, opening lockers for students who have misplaced their keys, and regulating stair traffic between classes. Besides these duties, the Council annually provides worth while entertain- ment for the students in the form of a Lyceum Course consisting of live num- bers scattered throughout the year. This year the first program was given by the Davies Light Opera Company. This was followed by Winston O,Keefe, cowboy. Magic always appeals to everyone, and Laurant, the magician, proved very capable of mystifying us. The last two speakers on the course were Richard Finnie and C. E. Iones. Mr. Finnie gave an illustrated lecture, "Among the Igloo Dwellersng and Mr. Iones demonstrated sound and electricity. Thus did the Student Council fulfill its purpose for the year which, as stated in its constitution, reads: "--to provide an effective means through which the student body may express itself, and through which it .may co-operate with the faculty in any way for the good of the schoolf, 77 P.

TI-IE MIRROR The Mirror, always alert to new ideas in make-up this year presented the editorial page with a new dress by interchanging its position with that of the sport page, adding two type sizes, and changing the number of columns from five to three. Another feature of the editorial page was the weekly cartoon. Another step forward was the adoption of a policy: To uphold all school projects, to act as a medium between faculty and students, to strive for wholesome publicity, and to elevate sportsmanship. Eight members of the present staff are members of the Quill and Scroll, international honorary society for high school journalists. 78 E. Pryde, Ed.-in-Chief, I. Yourd, Assoc. Ed., E. Mason, Assoc.

Tl-IE MAROON As the school year nears its completion, all students, especially seniors, look forward to the Maroon as a reminder of all the incidents in their school life. This year the staff has aimed for originality of theme and for a different and more artistic arrangement of the book, the theme being in close con- nection with the Elgin Centennial Celebration. In order to make it complete we have striven to obtain at least one picture of every individual in school. The staff wishes to express its appreciation to the following: Miss Newman, our adviser, Miss Stick- ling, copy reader, Miss Abell, director of the art work, Mr. Wilson, business adviser, and Lester Lantz, artist. 79 Mr. Goble, Ex-Off.

BOARD OF PUBLICATIONS The Board of Publications was created in 1933 to take the place of the Mirror Board which governed the "Mirror" only. The present board governs both the 'AMirror,' and the "Maroon", thus creating a certain unity of policy between the two publications. The Board consists of eight members: the principal of the high school, the adviser of the senior class, a business adviser, an editorial adviser, the managing editors of the "Mirror", the editor-in-chief of the "Maroon", and a student representative of the senior class. This Board appoints the editors of the publications and approves all staff members. It also determines the prices of the publications. Every year the Board sponsors a stunt night known as the Comedy Concert. The Comedy Concert provides an outlet for all school talent, as the whole program consists of entertain- ment by students. The stunts are prepared by clubs, independent groups, or individuals. They include tap-dancing, ball-room dancing, gymnastics, plays, skits, jokes, musical numbers, and various novelty acts. The stunts are sponsored by faculty members, and tryouts are held about two weeks before the public presentation to eliminate any skits which are considered below high school standard. 80 TI-IE MUSIC DEPARTMENT An important as Well as valuable part of school activities is that taken by the music department. Al- most every student in his four years of high school is connected with some musical organization, either orchestra, band, or glee club. It is a department which provides not only a restful change from studies and enjoyable entertainment but valuable training as well. One of the major organizations of the music department is, of course, the band, which provides music for football games and parades and gives assembly programs, seasonal concerts, and benefit con- certs. The orchestra is a large group of talented musicians directed this year by Miss Schock. It has a large part in school activities and was represented by various members in the State Orchestra at Ur- bana, Illinois. The First Girls Glee Club, First Boys Glee Club, Aeolians, Iunior-Senior Boys Glee Club, and A Cappella Choir train students in group singing and give each member a chance to become acquainted with the best in classical music. The popularity of the String Quartet is proved by the fact that they have made many appearances in school and before the public. ,Almost every year the various girls and boys glee clubs of the music department combine to present a program at Christmas. This year the Vesper service was held at the First Baptist Church, December 16, and not only did the group present a beautiful sight, but it also sang the beloved old Christmas se- lections with rare ability. 81 Back row: L.

It presented special auditorium programs as well as four formal concerts, fall, mid-winter, spring, and a beneht concert for the Elgin Playground Association. Four members of the band, George McEwan, Hubert Fredrickson, Kenneth Yarwood, and William Stone- breaker, represented Elgin High in the National Student Clinic Band at Urbana, Illinois. The band has proved its ability by winning first place in the district contest for the last five years and by winning the 1934 State Championship.

The club also gave a party for the children of the Larkin Horne. New maroon-colored robes worn with white collars were adopted this year, and have proved both satisfactory and attractive. The president of this group is Harroliese Brown, vice-president, Helen Nelson, secretary-treasurer, Phyllis Spalding, business manager, Iane Corxrathg librarians, Wilma Hallock, Leone Pfister, and Mabel Ross. Tl-IE JUNICDI2-SENIQI2 BOYS GLEE CLUB To acquaint boys with the best music is the primary purpose of the Iunior-Senior Boys Glee Club. The valuable training they receive in voice training and group singing can be put to good use after they are out of school.

AEOLIAIXI GLEE CLUB Members of the Aeolian Glee Club, which meets twice a week for practice, must have preliminary training in chorus or Treble Choir before they become eligible for tryout. Directed by Miss Schock, this group sang in the Christmas Vesper Program and in the spring festival. The president is Ruth Logan, the vice-president is Dorothy Ackemann, and the secretary-treasurer is DeLoris Boxberger. THE FIRST BOYS GLEE CLUB Although it is rather difficult to maintain the same quality and grade of voice throughout the year, due to the changes in the boys voices, the First Boys Glee Club was especially fine this year, being fortunate in having several sopranos. This boys organization, directed by Miss Elma Engelbrecht, serves as a source of pleasure and recreation as Well as training for changed and unchanged voices. The group sang at a service held at the First Methodist Church, in assembly programs, and in the Christmas Vesper. 85 First Violin: M. Hamlin. Second Violin: W. Brown. Cello: E. Pryde. Viola: B.

That this group of talented mu- sicians is '-'ery popular is illustrated in the fact that they have made many public appearances, having played selections before the Women's Club, the Lions Club, the Rotary Club, the North- ern Illinois State Teachers Meeting, at Y. M. C. A. dinners, in the Fox Valley Musical, for the One Act Plays, and in the orchestra concert. A CAPPELLA CHOIR The a Cappella Choir, a newly organized group of mixed voices, sings all songs Without ac- companiment. The members of this group have been selected from the First Girls and Boys Glee Clubs, and at their first appearance in the Christmas program they proved to be very pop- ular. In addition to this appearance they sang before the Women's Club, the Lions Club, and the Northern Illinois State Teachers meeting. In the spring they appeared as the assisting or- ganization in the orchestra concert. 86 Boys Winter Sports Top row: Howard Haumiller, Harold Dryer, Bill Hughes, Al Billings, Chuck Edgington, Al Luepke, Bud Geister and Iohn Thisell.

Their record was twenty games won and three lost including fifteen straight vic- tories. They shared the championship of the Big Six with West Aurora. During the first semester Elgin engaged in three pre-season games with Evanston, York cf Elmhurst, and Crystal Lake. They also played the first round of games in the Big Six and a game at Maywood with Proviso High. During the Christmas vacation, the Maroons entered the Pontiac, Illinois tournament, which was a gathering of sixteen of the best teams in the state. Elgin won this tournament by defeating Nor- mal, Kankakee, Quincy, and Mt. Pulaski. The Maroons ended the first semester by again defeating Crystal Lake on the Crystal Lake floor. They opened the second semester with another Maroon victory at East Aurora, but the winning streak stopped when Elgin met Ioliet in I0liet's huge gym the following week. Elgin,s next victim was Freeport, but the team lost at West Aurora a week later. The conference games were finished by a win over Rockford here. The Watch City boys, next step toward glory was winning the district tournament at Crystal Lake. Elgin defeated three teams, Arlington Heights, Crystal Lake, and Dundee to win the title. Probably the most hard fought and hardest game to lose was played at the sectional tournament at Win- netka, when Elgin lost to Deerfield-Shields of Highland Park in two overtime periods. Captain Erwin Graf, who has led the Big Six in scoring for two years, and Bill Hughes, Elgin cen- ter, were named on the All-Conference Team, and Kenny Cahill and Al Billings were named on the second team. All the lettermen on this year's team, except Russ Allen and Iack Conner, will graduate in Iune. 88 Top row: Leonard Helper, Cletus McDonough, lim Brady, Chuck Thiel, Ernest Brady and Bud Moseman.

The first game of the season played at Evanston was lost to Evanston 28-20. This was followed by a runaway victory over York of Elmhurst, 41-22. Elgin, the next week defeated Crystal Lake, the final score was 46-23. The ponies won their first conference game by defeating East High 39-28 in the Elgin gym. They repeated this the next week by taking Ioliet into camp by the score of 42-28. Crystal Lake again fell easily to Elgin, this time 34-13. Following this the next week at Freeport, Elgin had things a little tougher, winning by the slim margin of 26-21. The seventh victory in a row came to Elgin when they easily defeated West High 40-23. Elgin's first disappointment came when they were defeated by Rockford 36-21. Again the Maroonettes were defeated, this time by East Aurora 23-20. Elgin came back into the conference race the next week by defeating Ioliet in their spacious gym, 34-27. The lights trimmed Freeport 49-25 back on their own floor. They went to West High of Aurora quite confident of winning, but were beaten 36-26. The last game of the season was dropped to the champion Rock- ford team 23-20 before a crowd as large as our gym could accommodate. This closed the season for the lights. The percentage of games won was .666. They won 10 games and lost 5. Wilbur Walters was the leading scorer with 98 points, Wayne Conners was second with 97, although he played in Hve games less, Frank Miller, third with 82 points, Chuck Haller, fourth with 62. Chuck played a wonderful game all season at guard. Ernie Brady and Chuck Thiel each had 45 points. 89 I-I E A V Y W E I G H T M 9 - . 1ef'V?f,L" z K I-I E A V Y W E I G I-I T , L I G I-I T W E I G I-I T L L I G , H T W E I G H , T E 5 z S UPPER GROUP: Topl row: R.

"B" TEAMS BASKETBALL The "BH teams are composed solely of freshmen, sophomores, and a few juniors. The purpose is to develop players for the "A" teams the following year by giving them experience and teaching them the fundamentals. Every boy is given a chance in every game possible. This year the "BH Heavies played nine games winning the majority of them. They played two games each with East Aurora, West Aurora, Ioliet, and McHenry, and one game with Barrington. Some of the outstanding prospects developed during the season are Wilbur Ashman, Dan Palmer, Charles Edgington, and Merle Childs. The "B" Lights played a total of six games. They were not so fortunate as far as the winning of games was concerned but the valuable prospects developed for next year's "A" team made it worth the while. They played two games each with East and West Aurora and Ioliet. Some of the most outstanding prospects developed are Owen Prutzman, Norm Miller, Ted Wyman, and Dave Cornell. The coaches for these teams are coaches Krafft and Myers for the heavies and lights respectively. 94 Girls Winter Sports Back row: V. Sund, L. Kowcrt, E. Schumacher, R. Plote, D. Popp, C. Swanson.

JUNIQI2-SENIQI2 BASKETBALL n As usual, basketball attracted many enthusiastic athletes. After a few weeks of diligent prac- tice, the inter-class tournament was organized. As was expected, the keenest rivalry proved to be between the senior and junior teams. Both of these teams defeated the sophomore and fresh- man teams. The first game between these equally matched teams ended in a tie score. The final game ended in a crushing defeat for the seniors. The victorious juniors received as their award a trophy on the base of which the names of the players were engraved. l 96 Back row: N. Bassett, D. Gilomen, S. McLean. Front row: B. Attebury, B.

The sophomores gave the seniors and juniors some hard-fought battles, while the freshmen gave the sophomores some keen competition. Both of the underclass teams showed great promise and supplied some good contestants in the basket-shooting contest. During the holiday vacation, independent teams were organized. The Thanksgiving tourna- ment was Won by the juniors. The Christmas vacation tournament was won by the team cap- tained by LaVerne Iessien. 97 Top row: R. Sauer, L. Kowert, E. Raue, G. Muntz, R.

A. of Illinois, a telegraphic basket-shooting contest is carried on each year in March. Elgin has been very successful in this, for the girls have placed every year in the district. In this contest there are eight spots from which the contestants must shoot. The maximum number of trials allowed is twenty-four shots. The results of the group are averaged and then telegraphed to Chicago. The number of participants is apportioned from the number of girls who come out for basketball practice. This year thirty girls entered the contest. These girls were chosen because of their ability and skill they showed in practice. They received special training in this activity and proved their skill in the final test. The team placed second in the district with an average score of nineteen shots per person. The lowest score of ten was made by Mary Schrieber. Violet Sund and Ruth Plote were next, each making a score of twelve. Basket-shooting demands much concentration and accuracy. Because of this, the sport is intensely interesting. Much work is required tobuild up strength to shoot the long shots with ease. Steadiness and complete control of the ball are very essential. Because of the excellent training this sport affords, many girls find it very attractive. 98 cf ' fair M,, W, ,,QifZ7fM ' ,',f27z.,4af-Zf,?f74 J ' 'Vx V VXTYJ A N7 V 72:-Y-4 Z I3 47' ffo-' ...J Spring After the long winter months, today's pioneers, welcoming the newly arrived spring are developing their bodies again in the open.

This year Elgin should have a fair team with the return of two major lettermen: co-captains Don Stalions, a hurdler, and Gerald Peterson, a sprinter. Six minor lettermen are also back: Bill McDonough, a sprinter and broad jumper, Frank Dwyer, a half milerg Kenyon Peabody, a quarter milerg Wilbur Ashman, a high jumper, George Goe- dert, another high jumper, and Iimmy Sterricker, a miler. The Maroon's schedule this year includes two indoor meets and six outdoor meets. Included in these eight meets are some of the Hnest and best developed teams in the state. At the time the book goes to press, Elgin has entered in one indoor meet, the Oak Park relays. Elgin placed in one event, the pole vault. The rest of the schedule is: April 6-Naperville Cindoorj there April 20-Glcnbard here April 27-Rockford there May 4-County meet at Batavia May 11-District meet at Proviso May 18-State Finals at Urbana May 25-Big Seven here 100 120-Yard High Hurdles Goedert- Elgin- .

The team, while not very successful, received a lot of much needed experience. Their record for the season shows that they placed seventh in the Naperville relays. After this they lost a dual meet to East High, and following this they also lost to Glenbard in another dual meet. They took third in a triangular meet with East Aurora and Rockford. The team ran in the Kane County meet and also in the Illinois District meet. It was in the latter meet that Don Stalions quali- fied for the state finals in the high hurdles but failed to place at Champaign. The Big Six meet held at Maroon Field in which Elgin placed third closed the season. The leading point winners were Stalions, Peterson, Marquis, and Pate. 101 VARSITY-Back row: R. Kalk, S. Seimer, G.

VARSITY TENNIS Although we have only one letterman, Ralph Krueger, Elgin's prospects for a successful tennis sea- son look fairly good. Besides Krueger, the men on the Varsity squad last year that will return this year are: Bill Newlin, George Krornhout, Dick Reinert, Elder Brown, Glen McTavish, and Dick Akemann. A valuable addi- tion to this group is Russell Kalk, who entered from Abbott last fall. Four Fine players, Wilson, This- ell, Moseman, and McElroy, were lost this year by the ninth semester ineligibility ruling. At the time of going to press the Schedule is not complete, but the Maroons expect to compete in seven or eight meets. Included in these meets are the County meet and the Big Six meet.

VARSITY GOLF The golf team was successful again last year in that they were undefeated for the fourth consecutive season. They won matches from the teams of East Aurora, McHenry, and Rockford. The latter team placed three men very high in the state meet, which was held later in the season at Champaign, Illi- nois. The Elgin team was composed of Thisell, W. Miller, R. Hall, and P. Burlingame. The district meet this fall was held at Rockford. A team composed of Al Billings, E. Brown, R. Waggoner, and R. Reinert traveled to Rockford to be defeated, for the first time in four years, by a line Rah team composed of C. Bland, L. Castiglioni, and G. Wolfley. By the four year ruling, the Ma- roons lost the services of Iohn Thisell for fall competition. This year the golf coaches evolved a new plan for golf championships by holding them in the fall soon after school begins instead of having them in the spring. INTRAMURAL-Back row: E. Brown, A.

The purpose of the intramural program of sports is to give those boys who do not have the ability to make the varsity teams a chance to play in competitive athletics. There are tournaments in basketball, baseball, and volleyball, played under the di- rection of Mr. Gilbert Renner. 104 Girls Spring Sports TENNIS Back row: L. Iessien, M. Knuth, I. Beck, H. Brown, B.

The intramural tournaments stimulated strong competition among the girls within the school. The ,fact that the school team is composed of the best players of the school regardless of their place in the tournament encouraged great improvement on the part of the players as each girl made an eifort to be placed on this team.

Because of the lack of equipment, this game was reserved for the senior girls, who took advantage of this and used every oppor- tunity to increase their skill. Badminton is played with a small racquet similar to a tennis racquet and with a small feathered ball called a shuttle cock. . 106 Top row: I. Maule, D. Popp. Third row: R. Plote, B. Monroe, I.

"E" AWARDS At the close of each year, NE" Awards are given to those girls who by leadership, sportsmanship, and athletic ability in the four major sports, hockey, basketball, vol- leyball, and baseball, have been able to earn the number of points necessary for re- ceiving these emblems. State letters are also awarded on a point system. Iuniors who have acquired 1600 points may receive an "I", while the seniors who have 2000 points receive an "I" on an emblem in the shape of the State of Illinois. Besides these awards, individual letters are given, such as a "B" for basket-shooting and an "HH for hockey. In order to receive athletic awards, the girls need not excel in all or any one of the sports, but they must participate in all of them for the pleasure, keen competition, and friendship they afford. These athletic awards are valued keepsakes of the many happy hours spent at Maroon Field and in the E. H. S. gym. l09 H. L. D. L. M. I. Top row: H. Brown, L. Ciraulo, D. Kuehl, L. Kowert, M.

GRAY Adviser President Vice-President Secretary SENIOR CLASS HISTORY High School! Early in the spring of 1931, 146 grade school students realized their ambitions and entered Elgin High School as freshmen. To this nucleus of the Class of '35 were added, the following September, 339 more freshmen. Donna Folkman, Ray Fritz, Eleanor Mason, and Iohn Thisell were chosen by the class as Student Council representatives. By the time they were sophomores, the one-time Hgreen frosh" were adapted to their surroundings, and entered into many extra-curricular activities. Everett Pryde, Robert Geister, Helen Nelson, and George Soper served on the Student Council. Following two years of preparation, the Class of ,35 was fully organized during the junior year. Alfred Kirkland was elected president, George Goedert, vice-president, and Iean Yourd, secretary. The junior class play, "Tom Sawyer," presented in the spring of 1934 and the prom in Iune brought to an end a busy year. Finally came the fourth and last year. The senior class was under the leadership of Erwin Graf, with Eugene Smith, vice-president, and Betty Iean Gray, secretary. The Student Council had held an important election the preceding spring electing Robert Geldmacher president. Other senior members were Richard Akemann, Fred Funk, George Milner, and Iean Yourd. Unusual and different was "Merely Mary Ann," the senior class play, presented in December of 1934. The Iune prom and baccalaureate and graduation exercises climaxed the fourth and best year. 133 DEPARTMENTAL HONORS Beginning in 1933, honors in each department have been awarded to those students who have done outstanding work in that department.
