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
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.

THE FIRST LOG CABIN
lust one hundred years ago, two brothers, care-worn and weary, traveled over the
rolling prairies of Illinois and came to a stop at a river. 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
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
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
THE NEW BRICK
high school, the English and classical, each requiring four years for completion, were
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
THE OLD HIGH SCHOOL
of these were allowed for graduation. As an outgrowth of this addition the glee clubs
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.

BOARD OF EDUCATION
The school system is one of the most important projects of any community. 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
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.

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-

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. .

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.

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.

The social science department under the direction of Mr. Cartwright offers a variety of inter-
esting and worth while courses, including several courses in history, economics, and social prob-
lems. 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.

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

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.

It is said that music has charm, but this is not the only reason why Elgin High School has such
an extensive music department, which includes bands, orchestras, and choral groups. 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.

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
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.

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.

In order to do his school work to the best of his ability, a student must enjoy good health.
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.

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.

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.

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
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.

The Elgin majors opened the season at home with a scoreless tie with Geneva. 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.

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
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.

In the "Bn teams all the "A" squad players get their start. 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.

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.

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
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.

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.

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-

MASK AND BAUBLE
Sometime during his youth every one should be given V
an opportunity to develop a certain degree of assurance
and poise. 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.

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-
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.

To have a purpose is a good thing, but it is easily
seen that that is not enough-one must also succeed in
that purpose. 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,

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-

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
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.

The day is past when girls are not allowed the benefits
' U of education. They are now noi, longer considered as
Expenmemmg having minds incapable of development along the same
lines as men. 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

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.

Friday morning movies.
Out-of-town basketball games were also broadcast to
the school auditorium and admission charged for this.

Any girl in the Elgin High School who has taken
or is taking Home Economics or is interested in the
subject may be a member of the Home Economics Club,
which meets every month.
This organization strives to create an interest and a
closer cooperation between home and school. Its pro-
grams are arranged to offer the members valuable in-
formation in regard to the activities of the home, such
as clothing, food, and health problems.
This year the club members enjoyed interesting and
varied programs. At the Christmas meeting, carols were
sung and a story was told by Flossie McBride Parking
at another meeting, a local beauty specialist gave a dem-
onstration showing the correct method of using make-up.
As no make-up is of any avail applied to an unhealthy
surface, Miss Revett, the school nurse, spoke to the girls
on the ever important subject of health. During the year
an illustrated fashion talk was given, and the girls them-
selves gave a style show.

The object of the Commercial Club is to bring to stu-
dents outside experience that can not be given in class
rooms. 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. A student program was also presented con-
sisting of talks given on various commercial subjects.

The object of the rifle club is to develop those quali-
ties of sportsmanship, fair play, manliness, self-control,
and cooperation, which are so essential to success in life.
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.

Since this world is here for us to live in, and since
we cannot easily escape living in it, we should take an
interest in it. The Geography Club hopes to bring every
member to a consciousness of the interesting things in
nature. Everything one sees has a fascinating story be-
hind it. The Geography Club tries to arouse curiosity Examining Rocks and Fossils
along this line which will last after its members have
gone on to other fields of elfort. Fulfilling this desire
to learn about the things around us is an excellent use
of leisure time.
This year's program included some very interesting
talks by people who "went places" on their summer va-
cations. One of the speakers was Miss Martha E. Black,
Abbott School teacher, who told about her summer trip
to Mexico. The club also enjoyed a two-reel movie on
the action of water in changing the earth's surface. At-
tention should be called to the fact that this film has
been purchased by the club.

The girl who desires to develop a line character takes
a step in the right direction when she becomes a Girl
Scout, for the purpose of the Girl Scout organization is Furniture For Gifford Cabin
to help girls to realize the ideals of womanhood as a
preparation for their responsibilities in the home and
service to the community.
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

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.

Later, he and the other boys run off to Iackson's Island to play pirate and hunt for treasure. 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.

Feeling quite well acquainted with theater business after so success-
fully presenting "Tom Sawyer' in their junior year, the class of 1935

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

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. The National Forensic

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.

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
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,

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

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.

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.
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-
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-
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.

The First Band is one of the most important and useful organizations of the music department. This last
year the band played and marched for several football games and supplied the music for three parades. 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 Second Band serves as a means of training any students playing band instruments for membership in

Tl-IE FIRST GIRLS GLEE CLUB
Directed by Miss Alma Schock, this glee club, composed of girls with very fine
voices, had an important part in the Christmas Vesper Program, and in assembly pro-
grams as well. 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.
Because the tryout is quite rigid, it is only those boys with very good voices who
compose this club which meets to practice three times a week. The officers are as
follows: president, Gordon Adams, secretary, Robert Carlson, librarian, Duane Morse.

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
First Violin: M. Hamlin. Second Violin: W. Brown. Cello: E. Pryde. Viola: B. Hayes.

Tl-IE STRING QUARTET
The four members of the String Quartet are Marion Hamlin, first violin, Barbara Hayes,
viola, Everett Pryde, cello, and Willis Brown, second violin. 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.

"One of the finest records in the staten-that was what was said about the Elgin "Towers', at the end
of the 1934-35 season. 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

Coach Roggenis lights Hnished second in the Big Six this year by winning six conference games out
of ten starts.
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.

"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

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.

The sophomore and freshman teams also showed the true basketball spirit. 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.

Through the cooperation of the G. A. 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.

The spring of the year brings about our third major sport-track. 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

Although inexperienced the 1934 track team, headed by Coaches Roggen and Kraft, placed third
in the annual Big Six Track meet. 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.

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.

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.

Many girls signed up for tennis this year. 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

Badminton, a new sport at Elgin High, proved to be very popular
with the girls. 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. .

for indoor gym tournaments are held until warm weather, and then all girls
may participate in games at the Maroon Field. Many girls find this sport
interesting and exciting. A
Volley ball attracts more girls than any other sport, which proves that it
is one of our most popular minor sports. Many girls participated in an excit-
ing inter-class gym tournament.

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.

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
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.
Beginning in 1933, honors in each department have been awarded to those students who
have done outstanding work in that department. In 1934 the following students received cer-
tificates of award:
ENGLISH: William DeLancey, Olive Lauterbach, Ralph Leach, and
FOREIGN LANGUAGES: Carol lean Amis, Henrietta Heltzel, and Robert C. Miller.
SOCIAL SCIENCE: Charlotte Leverenz, William DeLancey, Gareth Barnes, and
MATHEMATICS: Ralph Leach, Robert C. Miller, Doris Richoz, and Lois
SCIENCE: Gareth Barnes and Doris Richoz.
COMMERCIAL: In Bookkeeping: Carolyn Reberg In Stenography: Eva
Rauschenberger: In General Business: Esther Nichols.
FREEHAND DRAWING: Ellen Roche and Barbara Byrne.
MUSIC: Carol Seymour, Neill Emmons, and Harry Iacobs.
Each year the Rotary Club presents honor medals to those students who have been on the
honor roll for the five grade periods. Those who received them in 1934 were:
Richard Akemann C35
Carol lean Amis C35
Margaret Ansel C15
Glenrose Boettcher C35
