Elgin, Illinois CUNTENTS FACULTY or Seientifxe Experimenters UNDERCLASSMEN or Subjects of the Experiment ACTIVITIES or Catalytic Agents SPORTS or Stabilizers SENIORS or The Finished Product FUBEWURD Iust as the scientist searches for truth in the Wonders of the World, so the highschool student, through industry and hard Work, delves into the problems of life seeking for the truth. And just as the scientist is continually striving to mold substances into new and perfect products, so the highschool instructors, as scien- tists in their classroom laboratories, try, with the help of their subjects and the extra-curricular activities, to mold underclass- men into successful seniors. This book intends to show you through its theme-the scien- tific experiment-how the students of Elgin High School pass through the experimental stage and then graduate, more fully developed. As in the world of science, so in the World of learning, great accomplishments can be achieved only through painstaking, ac- curate, and thoughtful Work. 0 ,..,-1 .f DEDICATIIIN Little more than a century ago our civilization, from the stand- point of scientific advantages and comforts, was scarcely more advanced than that of ancient Rome. The conveniences which today are so essential to everyday living but upon which We are prone to place but small value have been developed within the last one hundred yearsg and many are the products of the last decade. With the realization that scientific experiments and their sub- sequent achievements have been responsible for this great ad- vancement, the Maroon Staff dedicates this, the Maroon of 1935 to the past accomplishments and future progress of science. 5 022 o"'3 Ill 'E it E S4 9 f x ' 1 A-5 .A vb .

Elgin has been particularly fortunate in having an excellent board of education. Membership on the board of education is one of the few public offices that carry no remuneration, and it is perhaps for this reason that the caliber cf its personnel is higher than that of most elective bodies. The men and Women who aspire to this office are actuated by the desire to render a service to the community rather than to gain personal reward. To the satisfaction of the board members in knowing that their task has been well done, we would add the appreciation of the Elgin High School students for their most able and unselfish devotion to the best interests of the school. Directing the affairs of Elgin's school system is like running a large business. The board lays down the general educational policy, administers funds received, and coordinates the various school activi- ties. Property and equipment under its control are valued at hundreds of thousands of dollars. A president and nine members who serve for a term of three years comprise the board. There are three main committees: building and grounds, educational, and auditing. The finance committee is composed of the chairmen of the above three committees. Members for 1935-36 were: President Edwin Gardner, Paul Born, Charles Flora, Ray Geister, George Hart, Henry L. Krumm, Harry F. Mattocks, Archer Page, Dr. O. C. Prideaux, and Dr. Francis Towner. New members, elected in April, are: Paul Born, president, Mrs. Pearl Rayburn, William Lorang, C. Roy Dougherty, and Alfred Kirkland. They succeed Messrs. Gardner, Hart, Krumm, and Towner. 5 Ailministration The administrative responsibilities of Elgin High School are centered in Mr. Theodore Saam, superintendent of schools, and in Mr. W. L. Goble, principal of THSODQRE SEAM' the high school. In Mr. Hpemmin mt Saam we have an educational leader whose ability is widely recognized. In addition to his local duties, he is also president of the northeastern division of the Illinois State Teachers' Associa- tion. His interest in every student's progress is shown in his frequent class- room visits. To have headed Elgin W' QOELE' High School for thirty 'milpa years is ample proof of the distinction with which Mr. Goble has served. Thousands of Elgin boys and girls gratefully acknowledge his kindly un- derstanding and help. Under the direction of these two able men our high school has main- tained the high stand- ards which have earned ,T-.A- Lf'-RSEN: for it a place among the I foremost secondary schools of the state. Ixxlrlilfzi Princlprll Perhaps one of the least advertised but certainly one of the most impor- tant positions in any school is that of adviser to the students. How would we ever manage to make out our pro- grams if we had no one to advise us? And that is only one of the many ques- tions which they settle ' " i for bewildered students' NELLIE DRYSD4-LE, ' Dirffior of Pupil flrljzzstnzz-111 for many years Mrs. Nellie Drysdale and her associate, Miss Adah Pratt, have assisted the girls in arranging their curricula, ironing out scholastic difficulties, and solving the various problems that arise in the lives cf high school girls. The boys go to room 318, where Mr. T. A. Larsen gives them advice when they find themselves in a predica- ment. There they always find wise and friendly counsel. vi' I ADAH A.

English has superseded Spanish and French, and the world traveler today finds few "no spik Inglis" signs to disconcert him. As English enjoys this preeminence among languages, it certainly behooves us who are privileged to call it our mother tongue to learn ELSIE H, FLETCHER to use it correctly and ELMA C, ENGELBRECHT effectively. This is per- NORA B, STICKLING haps the principal aim of the English depart- ment. Having mastered the funda- mentals of grammar and construction, we progress to the more interesting study of literature, both English and American, and of the men and women who have produced it. Supplemental courses in dramatics, public speaking, and journalism are also available for those who prefer these specialties, The dramatics course offers the study of the theater, plays, GRACE M, KEATING players, and playwrights. CAROLEEN HALLER Students absorb a real WALTER M, w1L50N knowledge of drama and the stage by partici- pating in plays and by observing and criticizing the acting, directing, and stage managing of other students. MARION CHURCHILL Being able to express one's opinions extemporaneously in public with ease and poise is a qualification everyone desires. The course in public speaking not only assures this fact but also pro- motes the art of debating in a most interesting and educational manner.

G I RENNER Biology fthe word itself means "life"Q gives the student a glimpse into the different types of life that exist: insect, marine, germ, plant, and an- imal. Chemistry First started as an analyti- cal science, its chief purpose was to tear down mixtures and compounds in order to analyze them. Now the chief use of chemistry is in a synthetic Way fto create new substances by artificial meansj. It gives practical demonstra- tions and facts about the ninety-two different elements that can be made into indehnite numbers of mix- tures and compounds. Physics teaches the student more practical things about light, heat, sound, electricity, and mechanics. ELEANOR H. DORSETT HELEN KETTERING The study of science has been made much more interesting through the use of moving pictures. Educators today have come to believe in visual educa- tion, as the knowledge stays longer with the student if he sees it acted out before his eyes than if he gets it from a text-book alone. W. O. BECKNER C. E. ADAMS P-E-TAYLOR, son for the cooking defmrtnzelzf head C. A. LLOYD CLEORA E. IOHNSON FLORENCE FLETCHER Inclustrial Arts "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach." Perhaps you have heard this quoted before. Of course this isn't the rea- classes, but it might very well be one. Have you ever paused a moment be- fore room 209 to sniff the delightful aromas that H11 the air? If you have not, there is something in store for youg for here everything from fudge to carefuly balanced meals is prepared. In the first semester the girls learn, among other things, the ELMER R' BOHNERT feeding and care of chil- P. D. HANCE . . . dren, kitchen and dining room furnishing, and appropriate foods and service for social occasions. The course of the second semester includes training in the assembling of the family food supply and luncheon and dinner preparations. . The management of the home, and the study of the child and family re- lationships are taught in the home problems classes. "The best dressed girl" - who wouldn't be proud to have that distinc- tion? The girl who makes her own clothes hnds it a most economical way to be well-dressed, as evidenced by the dis- play of fine garments in the sewing classes. ln the first semester of the clothing course, the girls make pajamas and cot- ton dresses, besides studying the essen- tials of personality and good grooming, the care of clothing, and family rela- tionships. Dresses, skirts, and blouses are made in the more advanced classes. The mechanical drawing courses teach the boys the value of neatness and accuracy. Tables, lamps, and footstools are among the attractive pieces of furniture constructed in the wood-shop classes. Social Scicncc The social science department has been one of the most vital and popular courses in all schools in recent years. The study R' S' CARTWRIGHT, z1'c'pm'I1rw11t head of the courses offered directly affects the life of each and every individual. Included in the de- partment are several courses in history, economics, citizenship, and social prob- lems. In the history classes, courses are of- fered which acquaint us with the ac- tivities of mankind from the beginning of recorded time to the KATHERINE H. DAVERY present day. Classes in MARY L- SMITH United States history study the development of our nation and discuss current events. This year in the social problems classes the study of our government and citizenship has constituted the greater part of the program. A study of the constitution forms an important part of this work. lt is the purpose of the instructors in this subject to teach an appreciation of the constitution and all that it means to us MIKE A. FARROH in preserving our 1nd1- K. A. MONTGOMERY vidual and collective freedom and liberties, and in securing for our citizens the many benefits which accrue from our form of gov- ernment.

PECK Business It is the desire of a large per cent of the students of high school to prepare for positions in the busi- GLENNIE E' MORROW, ness world. We have, 1lepm'frm'11t lmzd to meet that demand, an unusually good business depart- ment. The courses offered are arith- metic, junior business training, book- keeping, typewriting, stenography, salesmanship, commercial law, and of- Hce training. lt is the aim of the de- partment to train students so that they B may step directly into World. Because of this, it is probably one of the most practical departments in the school. Typing is one of the most popular courses. In addition to the large group of people taking business courses, many college preparatory students consider it an essential part of their program as typing has become almost a necessity in college. The two typing rooms with nearly one hundred typewriters are kept in almost constant use. In bookkeeping, students are taught how to keep the different kinds of books used in ofhces. Business arith- metic and commercial HAROLD M. PERRY L V ROBINSON law teach facts that ' ' prove valuable in the business world. In stenography the stu- dents learn how to take dictation and then transcribe their notes into mailable letters. Students in salesmanship work out individual projects. Each member in the class demonstrates the art of selling by showing how he would create a desire for an article and then make the sale. Office training, as its KRAFFT name implies, gives gen- eral experience 1n office work. The students are allowed to practice on several different types of office machines. Throughout all the courses much effort is made to develop such qualities as accuracy, speed, dependability, and initiative. Foreign Language The foreign language courses provide In a means for students to learn to appre- vdfl-f' ciate the culture and beauty of the Old World HAZEL F, LINKFIELD, countries and to culti- vate a real interest in MABEL A- ENGELBRECHT them, this, in turn, will lead to increasing understanding be- tween nations. Latin, while it is' important as a foundation for many professions, also aids students in English sentence con- struction and word meaning and gives them an insight into the civilization of the ancient Romans. Students of French and German attain a knowledge of these languages and also become acquainted with the history, literature, and cus- toms of the countries. That Elgin High School students recognize the importance of foreign languages is evidenced by the increas- ing number of students who take ad- vantage of the language courses. zlfparrnzcnz head ANNE CRAIG CAROLEEN HALLER Fine Arts The extensive music department of the Elgin High School includes bands, orchestras, and choral groups. flt is an prgzlni- Farms 'L lmuiqua .ac W' ELMA c.

Here the students are taught to appreciate good music, in addition to receiving valuable training for a musical profession. The art classes develop the student's creative power, lead to a finer appre- ciation of beauty, and offer valuable training in the fundamentals of line and color. Posters and scenery for school projects are also made by the art classes. CLAUDIA V. ABELL 1 it l ,N , i , 'Tail 7 Sw , " ' rt .. I ,. ' was - ".m'- WI 1'-' i aw-t WE?

WILSON Mathematics "What science can there be more noble, more excellent, more useful for men, more admirably 1 right and demonstrative than this of mathema- tics?', This quotation from Benjamin Franklin sums up very well the benehts derived from a study of mathematics. Mathematics is becoming more and more useful to students every year. Most colleges demand that every stu- dent have it before en- tering. Algebra, besides furnishing the founda- tion for geometry and trigonometry, is useful to the person interested in in- surance and investment. Future archi- tects and surveyors must study geome- try. Trigonometry is used in aviation and navigation. All these branches of mathematics develop the power of logi- cal reasoning. A. PRATT Everyone acknowledges that the accurate clear-thinking MARY A. PETERS ' HELEN students of today are those who will become the successful citizens of tomorrow. Health Have you ever been impressed by the great contrast between the unhealthy looking individual and the wide-awake, robust person who radiates the glow of perfect health? If you have, you know the purpose of our health depart- ment, which does everything in its power to promote good health among the students. Our nurses stress the prevention of disease before it occurs' rather than the curing of it afterwards. They treat minor ailments, and when they are in doubt, they refer the student to the doctor. The pupil who is handicapped by L. REVETT poor eyesight cannot do his best workg our nurses try to meet this situation by the sight- saving class for those pupils so handi- capped. This year every student was also given a hearing test. Physical Education "One for all, and all for one." To- gether the members of the physical education classes work ARTHUR ROGGEN, out the im ortant rin- P p zlepzzrinzent head ciples of teamwork and cooperation. What a line reason for a class of this sort! The department of physical educa- tion is working toward making a bet- ter student through organized activi- ties of many sorts. Everyone knows the degree of clear and keen thinking and the cooperation necessary on the basketball Hoof or on the football field. This training will prove MIKE A. FARROH ' hl ' '- of great ep in work C. E' ADAMS ing out the problems of later life. But a reason which is just as important is the development of the body, for this leads to a happier, healthier life. A good student is a healthy student. The most important sports open to the student are basketball, football, vol- leyball, hockey, tennis, speedball, and baseball. While participating in these activities, the student realizes the im- portance of skill, teamwork, sports- manship, and fair play. A good player is judged HAROLD M' PERRY I . A. KRAFFT by all these qualities, and not only by his personal skill and accomplishments. A skilled player who does not play fair is ranked lower than the poorest man on the team. The girls in the gym classes are kept busy with dancing, marching, basket- ball, skill tests, basket- WILDA L. LOGAN shooting, volleyball, and HELEN KETTERING baseball. The boys take up boxing. basketball, volleyball, tum- bling, baseball, and track. 'hY1s..,,g pg-S--. 65 Vw xi ,X .1, NL.

Special lighting, adjusta- E.

During the past year, more than 400 books were added, a great store of material for the knowl- edge-seeking student. The tremendous task of keeping the books cataloged and in condition and of guiding stu- dents in the selection of material is ably done by Miss Carrie Williford and Miss Elvaiean Hall. llffice One of the most important depart- BURMASTER ments of the school is EVELYN L.

A few of these are the keeping of a complete history of every student, the checking up on ab- sences, and the arranging of classes. However, no matter how busy they are, they always have time to help one. We of the student body appreciate the will- ing help and courtesy of Miss Evelyn Boettcher and Miss Marion Burmaster.

But however much the school may give the underclassman, the latter is just as indispensable to the school. Witliout the subject, there would be no need for the scientific experimentg and without the underclassman, there would be no need for the school. l l i l l l l l l l l l I i l I l 9B Back row: I.

Catalytic Agents Iust as a catalytic agent aids in producing the product of a scientific experiment success- fully, without actually being essential to the composition of that product, so does a varied program of extra-curricular activities develop our finished product--the senior-more suc- cessfully than could the curricular subjects alone. And just as the experiment might be uninteresting and inactive without the aid of a catalyst, so might school life be dull and slow-moving without our extra-curricular activities. kb. 1: -'El . , Back row: M.

Edmund Stnhr Adviser ...... ,,..,.. It diss Adah Pratt The Elgin High School Student Council this year, as in the past, proved to be a most successful form of student government. The functions of the Council are considered by faculty and student body alike as being invaluable to school life, for it is through this means that the student body and faculty may contact each other and co- operate for the general good of the school. Membership on the Council since the establishment of that organ- ization has been considered a great honorg for not only is the group an important body, but its members are democratically elected by their classmates. As has been its custom for several years, this year's Council spon- sored a lyceum course of outstanding programs available to the stu- dents at a low price. The course presented this year provided un- usually fine entertainment. Major Iames C. Sanders gave an intimate picture of the ancient American civilizations by means of an illustrated lecture at the first program. At the second, Sam Risk, the young "Syrian Yankee," gave an interesting and valuable lecture on what American citizen- ship, freedom, and education mean to a homeless foreign waif. At another, lack Raymon presented an enlightening program concern- ing snakes and reptiles. He also entertained with rope and whip stunts. The Plantation Melody Singers appeared as the fourth pro- gramg this outstanding Negro quartet gave a highly entertaining concert. Dr. Charles Barker in an inspiring lecture on "How to Get the Most Out of Life" was featured on the last program. The unique idea of installing penny ink-dispensers in the study halls and library was introduced this year by the Council. However, one of the most valuable services that the Student Council gives the school is its supervision of the stairways and corridors. The Council members open lockers, direct stair traffic, help new students to locate rooms and teachers, and guard halls during school hours. 27 XQM, ,WAY Back row: R. Day, D. Lay, R. Orton, L.

FIRST UBCIIESTIIA The High School Orchestra, which is composed of forty-five members, presented several concerts during the year and played for many clubs, churches, and school entertainments, and for Commencement. The following orchestra members represented Elgin High School in the State Orchestra at Urbana, Illinois: Bernice Wahl, Irene Ollman, Marion Miller, Sybil McBurney, Charlotte Bres- lich, Milton Holtz, and Keith Olsen. The First Orchestra was also represented in the Fox Valley Orchestra this spring. Besides acquiring technical ability on their instruments, members of the orchestra develop a true appreciation of good music. Under their new system of student government, the personnel of the orchestra assumes the responsibility of plan- ning and arranging all details for concerts, social functions, and everything else that the orchestra undertakes. The Second Orchestra serves as a class to train members of the First Orchestra and to give experience to Hfteen student directors. Student Directors ,.... .... L ....

Its members are chosen from both the boys and the girls glees for their outstanding voices. Rigid tryouts are required, and at present the membership is only twenty-four. A Cappella is a recently organized group, having had its beginning only a year agog but it has proved itself outstanding. In the next few years, the membership will probably be in- creased and the choir will be more highly trained. During the past year, the A Cappella Choir has appeared before the Elgin Business Women's Club and the Rotary Club, and has participated in both the Christmas and the May festivals. The First Girls Glee meets three periods a week, and it is open to girls who have had sufficient experience in the Aeolian Club. They may be chosen either from past or present mem- bers of Aeoliang however, membership in the club is limited and members must pass rigid tryouts. The Glee Club has appeared in the Christmas and May Festivals, and has provided several entertaining auditorium programs. It also assists at the orchestral concerts, which are featured several times a year. ' Giving a glimpse into the future, who knows what meek Glee Club singer may become a sonorous, famous diva? So it is worth while for every eligible girl to join the club. 30 Back row: E. Culp. W. Klabunde, F. Paulus, M. Eckert. N. Schenet, M. Holtz, K. Lueeht, M. Holtz, R. Krueger, E. Mueller, E.

M iss Elma Engcllwrccht First Boys Glee Club MISS ELMA ENGELBRECI-IT Director lrlil' ln This is the most advanced of the boys glees, and most of its members have had two or more years of experience in choral singing. The group is outstanding for its Hne voice quality. Membership in this Glee Club is limited to twenty-four, and it is open only to upper classmen whose voices are matured and true. Rigid tryouts are required. During the past year the boys have participated in the Christmas Vespers at the High School, have appeared before the Womans Club, and have assisted at Abbott School's Sun- day afternoon vespcrs. The First Boys Glee Club, directed by Miss Elma Engel- brecht, is open to all boys who can warble a tune with enough nicety to pass the tryouts. The members have usually had a semester or so of treble choir or chorus, and so they are some- what experienced in glee work. This club may be considered a sort of training ground which leads to the higher glees and to the A Cappella Choir. Taken together, the Glee Club does some very creditable work, and has given many of this yearis auditorium programs and recitals. The boys appeared in the Christmas Vespers in December, and have sometimes assisted the orchestra in its concerts. 31 'To lovers of song, dreamers of opera, and to all who aspire to faine, oh, yes, and to those who can sing, Aeolian Club is open, always providing that they have had three semesters of chorus, or one semester of treble choir, and can pass the re- quired tryouts. The purpose of the club is to promote interest in music in the high school, and to help develop promising voices. ln the past year Aeolian singers have lent their harmony to school recitals, and have assisted the orchestra in giving their concerts. The club also participated in the Christmas Vespers, given at the Baptist Church on December 15, where they sang the Christmas carols. The Treble Choir is made up of students with outstanding voices which have been recommended by their music teachers in grade school, and those who have been promoted from the chorus. They have appeared in Christmas and spring festivals. This group opens a path to the higher glee clubs and gives good voices experience and opportunity. It meets three periods a week and is directed by Miss Elma Engelbrecht. Chorus is one of the largest vocal organizations in the high school, and is open to all students who are interested in de- veloping their voices. A semester in chorus is usually one of the requirements for entrance into the other glee clubs, and this work also provides a basic knowledge of choral singing. Miss Elma Engelbrecht is the director. 32- Back row: L. Wunderlieh, E. Spen- cer, G. Ditter, A. Dickman, S. McBurncy, E. Cunningham, I. Wa- terman, I. Wright, D. Fischer, B. 'Wilkin, M. Radke, E.

N urse Gray Comedy, farce, drama-such was the varied program presented to an enthusiastic audience on the evening of one-acts. The E. H. S. Players, under the direction of Miss Marge Biersach, undertook the entire pro- duction this year, instead of combining with the Mask and Bauble as in previous years. In the opening presentation, "The Weddingf' a comedy by Iohn Kirk- patrick, the audience found itself carried away by the amusing antics of the bridegroom, who was frantically searching for a missing collar but- ton a few moments before the wedding. The charming bride and the entertaining best man helped to keep the play moving at a fast tempo, the latter losing the ring at the crucial moment and starting the wedding before the bride and groom were ready to perform. Incidental music during this play and during intermissions was fur- nished by members of the orchestra, under the able direction of Melvin Holtz. A rollicking farce, "Thank You, Doctor," by Gilbert Emery, held the attention of the audience with its fine acting and merriment. The action took place in the office of a mental specialist, with complications arising because of a clever pearl thief, who was finally brought to justice. The eccentric patient served to carry the audience into gales of laugh- ter with his peculiar mannerisms, and each actor performed at his best. The final play, "The Curtain," a gripping drama by Hallie Flanagan, director of the Federal Theater project, served as a contrast to the pre- ceding plays, being of a particularly intense nature. "The Curtain," prize play of the Des Moines Little Theater contest, dealt deliberately and powerfully with the importance of truth. The two leading characters, father and daughter, threw themselves into their characterizations with an intensity that made a deep impression upon the audience. 33 l SAD QQDADIIIESP JUNIQIR CLASS PLAY l May 24, 1935 The class of 1936 staged a most delightfully human and sparklingly funny performance in their produc- tion of "Daddies,', a comedy in four acts, as an envia- ble contribution to the early dramatic ventures of l935. With a simple yet charmingly different "scheme of things" the well chosen and perfectly managed student cast presented an able interpretation. However, every line play must have the untiring efforts of many peo- ple besides the actors. Honors for sincere interest and untiring effort go to Miss Marge Biersach, a very in- spiring and enthusiastic director, to the student corps of business committees, and to the entire class for their advertising and support. Lovable touches of human interest, droll witticisms, disguised bits of pathos, and a strang strain of ro- mance-all these molded into a composite whole thoroughly satished an appreciative audience and compensated for hours of practice, direction, and com- mittee Work. The action of the plot revolves about a previously established bachelors' club and its principles and ideals. The play definitely proves that such a club is no match for the enticing manners of children, Whether they be small or grown. One by one the five members, be- cause of their sympathetic interest in orphans, are faced with the problems of keeping and handling children. Their dignity and reserve soon begin to crumble and, with them, the stalwart bulwarks of the organization. Each child displays some particularly humorous or pathetic quality to increase further the complexity of the situation. One young lady even succeeds in win- ning the youngest bachelorls heart to the extent that he forfeits his membership in the august group. This act sets an example to the remaining members, however, and the audience soon sees evidence of the clubls Hnal downfall in the changed attitude of the bachelors toward the abhorred species as the final curtain falls on the capers of the "Daddies,' and their supporting cast.

"THE SWVANP SENIUB CLASS PLAY December 6, 1935 "The Swan," a romantic comedy by Ferenc Molnar, burst forth in all its splendor and royalty on the eve- ning of December 6 under the able direction of Miss Marge Biersach. The class of '36 chose this extremely difficult play because it was "different," and the inter- est shown by the appreciative audience clearly proved that the choice was worth the effort put forth by the intelligent cast. The simplicity of the single set used, the gilt furni- ture against a background of light French blue, en- hanced the beauty of the costumes and lent an at- mosphere of elegance to the production. The soft music of the hidden orchestra provided a picturesque frame for the gay banquet scene. The audience is transported to the delightful home of the beautiful Princess Alexandra, whose mother, Princess Beatrice, is desirous of having her marry a prince, thus uniting two great kingdoms and making the princess a real empress. But, alas! Prince Albert, while visiting at the home of Beatrice, seems not at all intrigued by Princess Alexandra's charms. Beatrice, frantic beyond words because of this indif- ference, arranges a mild flirtation between Alexandra and the family tutor, Dr. Nicholas Agi. This little scheme is intended to arouse the prince's interest in Alexandra. To complicate matters, the tutor falls in love with the princess and is deeply wounded when he learns the cause of her recent attention. Alexandra, in the meantime, also falls in love with the tutor. Alexandra's uncle, Father Hyacinth, a monk, arrives in time to advise the young princess in the matters of her heart. Prince Albert realizes his love for Alexan- dra, and the brave tutor nobly steps out of the picture. The entire cast and the efficient backstage crews combined their efforts to put forth in a truly profes- sional-like manner the difficult and beautiful produc- tion, "The Swan." ,,- --- sENioR 'CLASS PLAY DIRECTED BY MISS MARGE' BIERSACH Top Picture: Back row: M.

Cartwright began this fall what has proved to be a difficult but successful year of debating. A squad of eighteen chosen from a group of over forty aspirants participated in an ex- tensive schedule including tournaments, non-decision con- tests with other schools, and inter-squad debates for civic clubs. The subject of argument was state medicine. The Hrst decision debating of the year was done at the pre-season tournament at Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois, where Elgin was defeated in the quarter-Finals. In the Drake University Tournament held at Des Moines, Iowa, the team was eliminated in the third round by the winner of the tournament, Lincoln High School of Council Bluffs, Iowa. Elgin won the right to compete in the Open-State Tour- nament, which has not been held at this writing,.by tying with Sandwich for First place in the district meet. The de- baters captured second honors in the Big Seven Tourna- ment. West Aurora led the Conference this year, but in the four years of Big Seven debating Elgin has led twice and held second twice. In the National Forensic League State Tournament held at Lincoln, the Elgin debaters were eliminated in the quar- ter-Hnals. The squad hopes to win the right to compete in the National Tourney to be held at Oklahoma City by win- FRESHMAN-SOPHOMORE DEBATE CLUB Back row: I. XVerner, I.. Dittman, V. Elliott, I. Le Rcu, R.

For the past three years Elgin teams have had the honor of participating at "National," The Freshman-Sophomore Debate Club under the leader- ship of Miss Elvajean Hall has also had an interesting sea- son. The group debated several questions throughout the year. They presented two debate programs at Arden Shore and one at the Great Lakes Naval Training Station. In a debate with the Abbott School team which was judged by the varsity, the freshman-sophomore group won a close de- cision. That the organization gives students valuable training is evidenced by the fact that nine members of this yearls var- sity are former members of the Freshman-Sophomore Club. Other important phases of forensic work are the speech activity contests of the State Literary Association, the Big Seven Conference, and the National Forensic League. Elgin is represented in dramatic declamation by Doris Lantz, who last year won the state humorous reading title. Robert Wag- goner, who took second in the Big Seven contest and third in the state contest in extemporaneous speaking last year, is competing in original oratory this season. The extempore speaker this year is Ruth Frisby, who also Won third in this activity at the state contest last year. George Kromhout represents Elgin in oratorical declamation. George won the privilege of competing in the Open-State linals by annexing second place in the district. The entrant in humorous read- ing is Ioe McCarthy, who went to the semi-Hnals of last year's state humorous reading contest. FORENSIC ACTIVITY PARTICIPANTS Back row: G. Kromhout, R. Waggener, I.

The 1934-1935 Mirror won the Quill and Scroll International first place award, and this year's staff hopes to equal or excel this. The staff did its best toward making the Mirror a modern school paper, tending toward the conserv- ative side rather than the sensational. A large number of names were printed in each Mirror, and the staff tried to make it a paper for the entire student body. There were several special features throughout the year: a literary page, a special six-page Christ- mas edition, a humor edition, a handbill to adver- tise the Comedy Concert, the junior edition, and the senior Class Day edition. The Mirror had a larger subscription number than had been enjoyed for several years because of the combined price offered for the Mirror and Ma- roon. In October the Big Seven Press Conference was held here, and it was highly praised by the out- siders attending. Featured speakers were lack Mor- row, foreign correspondent, Mrs. E. M. C. Brazel- ton, newspaper woman and author, and Miss Hazel Belle Perry, newspaper woman and social worker. Several former Elgin students, now in the Field of journalism, conducted round tables. Miss Margaret E. Newman is editorial adviser for the paper and Walter W. Wilson business adviser. MIRROR STAFF TOP PICTURE-Back row: E. Phelps, School Briefs: B. Manougian, Asst. Ed.: R.

FIRST SEMESTER STAFF MEMBERS CNOT PICTUREDJ G. Hart, Asst. Ed.: F. McCarthy, Circ. Asst.: R. Van Natta, Ad. Asst. OQKZW MAIl00N Because the members of this year's Maroon Staff wished to create a more original annual, they chose for a theme a scientific experiment. This theme gave the art staff a chance to use modern art for the division pages, and it allowed an arrangement of the sections and a layout different from that of other years. VVith the hope of building a livelier annual, the student photographer has taken more action pictures. and each member has worked to produce write-ups that have more originality. This year the staff has adopted two new policies. First, the business stali solicited subscriptions in the fall instead of in the winterg and second, a Maroon was not given to each staii member as a reward for service. By agreement of the two staffs, a combined Mirror-Maroon price was offered this year. The two publications enjoyed a social evening together May 7 at Unity Hall in the third annual publications dinner. Quill and Scroll pins were awarded to thirteen members from the two staffs. Several former Quill and Scroll members were guests. The members of the Maroon Staff wish to thank Miss Abell for her help in the art workg Miss New- man, our adviser, for her instruction and advice, Miss Stickling, copy reader, for her help in correct- ing copy and advising the editorial staffg and Mr. XVilson, business adviser, for the help he has given the business staff.

This Board is composed of seven members: the principal of the school, the business and editorial advisers of the pub- lications, the sponsor of the senior class, the editors-in-chief of the two publications, and a member chosen by the seniors. Prior to the existence of this body, the Mirror was under the control of the Mirror Board, and the Maroon was man- aged by an adviser. The Publications Board looks after the expenditures, the income, and the policies of the two school publications. When it is necessary, this Board sponsors an entertainment, like the Comedy Concert, to aid finances. This year the Board authorized a combined Mirror-Maroon subscription rate with payments by installments. Although the combined price was mainly to aid the Mirror, more Maroons were sold this year than last. The Comedy Concert, which was presented one night this year, has been an annual event for twenty-five years. It consists of a series of stunts such as short plays, musical selections, and other entertainment put on by the students and sponsored by the teachers. From a number of stunts, the members of the Board of Publications decide which shall be presented. Clubs are allowed to pay for their Maroon pictures by sponsoring stunts or selling tickets for the event. The school publications belong to the Quill and Scroll and to the National Scholastic Press Association. Members of either staff of the school publications may join the Quill and Scroll, an international organization, if they have done outstanding work. The Publications Board has centralized the control of the school publications and has enabled them to cooperate to a greater extent than they did before. Both the Mirror and the Maroon have profited under its management. 40 Top Picture: Mr. I. A. Morrow, Miss Hazel Belle Perry, Mrs. E. M. C. Brazelton: speakers at Big Seven Press Conference.

For the benefit of those who do not understand Latin, the name of of the club means, in English, "Among Ourselves." The Latin Club endeavors to enlighten the students by acquainting them with Roman life, customs, and history. The programs are planned to supply that information for which there is no time in class. During the past year Inter Nos has had many distinctive and varied programs, including movies, plays, and informative reports. At one of the meetings several students in the first period Latin IH' class pre- sented a short play in Latin entitled "Bulla,,' which in English means "The Locket." According to the ancient Roman belief this locket, if worn about one's neck, protected the person Wearing it against all evils as it did a young girl in this play. The group also held, in ac- cordance with an old Latin Club custom, the annual party of the Virgil class at the end of the year. The various programs of the past year have brought to light the "Shades of Iulius Caesar," have thoroughly aired Virgil's many pe- culiarities, and have also endeavored to Hx dehnitely in the students' minds the Rubicon and Vercingetorix. The Rubicon, by the way, is a river, which Caesar crossed on a bridge. It is uncertain whether or not, when once across, he burned that bridge behind him, maybe it was another man who did that. Vercingetorix was a Gallic king, scientifically used by Iulius to plague his readers. And so, having thus contributed to the general knowledge, the Latin Club rests on its laurels for another year. Valel 41 'N LE CERCLE FRANCAIS Le Cercle Francais aims to bring together, socially and intellectual- ly, those students who are studying the French language, and to further, or to instill, as the case may be, knowledge of France, its people, and its customs. The programs of the club even more than class studies give stu- dents of French a background for the language and make them fa- miliar with famous Frenchmen and noted French scenes and build- ings. The history of France is very fascinatingg old towers and an- cient palaces recall long forgotten kings and queens, tyrants and statesmen, all of Whom have left their mark upon the country's peo- ple and language. So the study of French is also a study of history, art, and culture. Many interesting programs consisting of travel talks, movies, plays, and music have been given during the past year at Le Cercle meet- ings. Outstanding among the speakers were Miss Hortense VVilson, who last summer visited the Gaspe Peninsula, one of the most pic- turesque parts of French-Canada, Mrs. Minna Brady Lee, who spoke about her trip around the worldg and Newton Rejebian, an Elgin High School student, who told of his experiences while attending a school conducted by French monks near Athens, Greece. An original musical stunt called "A French Cafew was presented by the club in the Comedy Concert. The stunt was not only given by the students but was also planned and directed by them. The play depicted a picturesque little French cafe in which the guests entertained themselves with songs and dances. Since only those who are really interested in furthering their knowl- edge and love of things French join the club, Le Cercle is always able to offer through the cooperation of its members a most valuable yearly program. Le Cercle Francais holds a regular meeting once a month, and convenes for one evening meeting and a picnic breakfast annually. 42 President ............ ...... Back row: R. Gagnon, A. Samuel- son, H.

The club has accomplished its aims through the well planned and varied programs of folk songs, travel talks, and reports on Germany's famous people, customs, and contributions. T The first program of the year was about Tyrol, and consisted of a talk on the Tyrolese and some excellent singing and yodeling by Mrs. Evelyn Vierke Smith. Another meeting consisted of two movies, 'iThe Summer Olympics of 1936" and "Sight-Seeing in Germany." At a later meeting Mrs. Minna Brady Lee told the club of her trip around the world, emphasizing her experiences in Germany. She presented an excellent picture of Germany, adding some of the hu- morous incidents which she experienced. Since music is always a main part of the program of "Der Deutsche Verein," the members have long desired a piano which would make their musical elforts more successful. Through the cooperation of the Senior Science Club, the German Club sponsored a movie, the pro- ceeds of which were used to buy a piano. Besides being utilized by the club itself, the piano is also used by the foreign language classes. Another project of the club was a trip to Chicago to see the "Great Waltzf, This play portrayed in beautiful colors and scenery and through excellent acting the life of Iohann Strauss and his son, Iohann Iunior. The club has also had some social meetings and presented a stunt in the Comedy Concert. 43 n 1 . .N ---QD If rifle... " I JH, lf '51 ll E. ll. S. PLAYERS The Elgin High School Players is a dramatic club for seniors and juniors only, and since the membership would be excessive if it were open to all, only those students whose dramatic ability is pronounced may be admitted upon an invitation from Miss Biersach. There are at present sixty-six of the Players. The purpose of the club is to further drama in all its forms in our high school, to present to the community at large well known and worthwhile plays, and to teach play production and management to its members. The various productions are directed and financially arranged by the students, who also play the roles in the plays. The E. H. S. Players is a very active and energetic club. Its members cooperate in all fields of dramatic business, including advertising and publicity, and so gain valuable experience. During the past year the Players have presented many auditorium programs, among them pantomimes, plays, and short skits. In addi- tion, much of the material for the senior and junior class plays comes, naturally, from this club and from the Mask and Bauble, the fresh- men and sophomore club. The outstanding event of the year was the three one-act plays, given in the auditorium on February 27. Before the plays which appeared on that night were finally selected, nine groups of Players prepared student directed plays, and these were given before nine qualified judges. The awards were made upon the basis of the choice of play and the acting talent of the cast. The best of these, selected for the one-acts, were: "A Wedding," "Thank You, Doctor," and "The Curtainf' This system of choice is new, and has been used only for the last few years. The dramatic clubs and classes do not claim to produce Sara Bern- hardts and Le Galiennes, but they may have a Colbert some day. Who knows? 44 Back row: D. Roberts. M. Fuller, R. Brandt, P.

DIASK AND BAUBLE .........David VVellnitz Miss ..........Doris Ollman ..........,Lucille Benz Richard I-lznneistcr Mabel Iingelbrecht Miss Helen Iocclyn "A Little Child Shall Lead Them" The purpose of the Mask and Bauble, the junior dramatics club of Elgin High School, is to acquaint its members with the simple prin- eiples of acting, and to give them practice in applying those princi- ples. Members are given a chance to criticize and to offer suggestions in student plays and pantomimes, Programs for the bi-weekly meet- ings are planned for a Whole year at a time by a student committee aided by Miss Iocelyn. Miss Maybelle Holland spoke at one of the first meetings of the Mask and Bauble this year and gave a very interesting account of the "Great Waltzl' and of some other plays she had seen in New York during summer vacation. Some of the other programs included a discussion of the play, 'gllomeo and Iuliet,', pantomimes, and a play written by some of the members when they were in the eighth grade. The members also enjoyed short talks with demonstrations on the, use of the hands in acting, a play as a surprise program for Christmas, and a demonstration of the art of make-up by students of one of the dramatics classes. This year Iohn Tyrrell with the help of some of the members presented a play, "Iack and the Bean-Stalk," with marionettes which they had made themselves. For an outside program the Mask and Bauble presented a Christmas play for the D. A. R. and for other groups outside the high school. A social evening at which parents and friends of the members were guests was presented in the spring. The program consisted of two one-act plays, "The Unseen" directed by Miss Mable Engelbrecht and "Good Medicinev directed by Miss Helen Iocelyn. The marion- ettes were also featured at this evening party. Freshmen and sophomores are admitted to the club by tryouts when vacancies occur. These tryouts consist of a short reading and a pantomime chosen and presented by the student. The judges are the sponsors of the club. An active member in the Mask and Bauble can usually secure membership in the senior dramatics club. 45 lI0lVIE ECUNIJMICS CLUB Training in sewing and cool-:ing proves very desirable and practical not only during school days but also when high school is forgotten. That is the reason why home economics is a very popular course among Elgin High School girls. The Home Economics Club was established as a supplement to class training, for it helps girls to ob- tain the greatest amount of information and pleasure out of facts and experiences secured in the clothing and foods classrooms. The lessons in the daily classes should bear direct relation to the home life of each pupil. Realizing this fact, the aim of the club is to create interest and cooperation between home and school. Every phase of its work and play points toward that goal. Students enjoy their membership in this club, it seems, as over one hundred fifty girls were members this year. One of the greatest factors in the success of the club was the high quality of the programs scheduled by the social committee. The types of programs centered about health, clothing and food problems, and other activities of good housekeeping and home life. The Christ- mas program included a delightful talk by Mrs. Flossie McBride Parkin and the singing of carols. Other programs featured a C. Penney Company style showg Films on cotton, flax, silk, and rayong and an educational travel talk. 46 HOME ECONOMICS CLUB OFFICERS Miss Iohnson, M. Raclke, D. Dewey, I. Musekamp, I.

M iss Wilda Logan Comedy Concert-"Now and Thenv G. A. A. The Girls Athletic Association is celebrating its sixteenth anniver- sary this year. It was organized to stimulate interest in girls' athletics and gymnastics and to further the friendship of the girls in the school. Any girl in high school may be a member. The G. A. A. meets once a month during activities period. It has varied programs including talks, singing, tap dancing, readings, and social dancing. At one of its meetings an exhibition basketball game was played between the juniors and seniors. The seniors were the victors. Another meeting consisted of two ping-pong games, a game of singles played by Gwen Muntz and Betty Monroe, and a game of doubles in which Ariel Long and Betty Manougian played against Ethel Mae Raue and Vivian Benz. Thirty girls of the G. A. A. competed in the Illinois League Girls Basketball Shooting Contest this spring, as they have for the last eight years. During this time the Elgin girls have always placed in the district and on one occasion ranked first in the state. This year on Fun Night, the G. A. A. presented a very clever and entertaining amateur program. The organization also presented a stunt in the Comedy Concert. The fall hockey-football party, which is an annual affair, was great- ly anticipated by the team members. It was one of the most im- portant social functions of the season. This year the club had a new form of entertainment for its members, a G. A. A. dessert party at which the members played cards and danced. Although these social affairs are greatly enjoyed by the members, the most important so- cial function of the club is its spring dance. This is presented in the high school gym and is always a great success. 47 MAIl00N ATHLETIC CLUB The goal of the Maroon Athletic Club is to encourage student in- terest in sports, to form a closer union between the coaches and the players, and to provide an organization for those who have partici- pated in sports. Entertainment for its monthly meetings is planned by the Board of Control. This board, which is made up of the coaching staff, the officers of the club, and representatives from the club, also manages the business and takes care of membership in the organization. At the first meeting the two new coaches, Mr. Perry and Mr. Far- roh, were introduced to the members of the club, and the coaches gave short talks. At another meeting Dr. Iohn R. Tobin and Mr. T. A. Larsen compared football as they played it with the modern game. At the beginning of the basketball season Mr. Adams, heavy- weight coach, discussed the changes made in basketball this year, the other coaches discussed the game in general. Some very Fine movies of the North Woods taken in the country around Hudson Bay were shown, and boxing matches were given at two later programs. The M. A. C. helps in every Way it can at football and basketball games and at other sports events. The club runs a coat check-room during basketball games and with the resulting money buys addi- tional equipment that could not otherwise be procured. Any boy who has participated for one season in football, basket- ball, track, or tennis may become a member. lnitiations are given after the football season and after the basketball season. Only ini- tiated members are allowed at meetings. 48 Back row: Mr. Adams, Mr. Perry, Mr. Farroh, Mr. Roggen, Mr. Kraift. Fourth row: E. Brady, G. Papa- gcorgc, XV. Kollman, A. Nelson, I. O'Leary, T.

The Commercial Club seeks to establish contacts between students and the business world, to develop a better personal relationship be- tween the student and the teacher, and to increase the student's knowledge of commercial work. The social spirit among commercial students is encouraged by the many opportunities for social contact which are afforded during sessions. Not only are these things ac- complished, howeverg but the members Find themselves becoming conversant with modern business methods, thereby promoting higher standards of efhciency and developing broader Fields of specialization. To accomplish this, each year the club invites a number of leaders from business and professional fields to give informal talks at its regular meetings. The following speakers were participants in some of the outstanding Commercial Club programs this year: Mr. Charles Page, ai lawyer, who explained the value of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, Mr. W. I. Graham, a member of the School of Busi- ness at the University of Chicago, Mr. Aleiiander Metzel, president of the Union National Bank, Mr. Franklin C. Sorn, advertising manager at Spiess Company, who spoke on advertising in general, and Miss Mary lane Trotter, representative of the Providence Mutual Life Insurance Company. After a talk is completed, there is generally an opportunity for members of the club to ask questions of the speaker. In this way, individual contacts are created. Through educational programs and student projects, the young people of the organization Hnd their interest in the business world greatly increased. Any sophomore, junior, or senior who is carrying one or more commercial subjects is eligible for membership in the Commercial Club for one year. ' 49 ffwed Back row: F. VanVleet, R. Giertz, D.

'its and research daily add to the sum of human knowledge. Elgni High School of : the many sciences to its boys and girls in order that they may receive and enjoy a background of scientihc training. An organization which does much to keep girls interested in their science courses as well as to stim.-late thought and inquiry into the fascinating mysteries of science is the Girls Science Club. The grow- ing interest in the work of this organization is evidenced in that it has enjoyed an ever-increasing membership since its establishment two years ago. All members are required to have completed one year of general science, algebra, and geometry, and to be studying either chemistry or physics, thus, only junior and senior girls are eligible. Once in- stalled as a member, each girl must participate in at least two month- ly meetings, thus she cannot help having a personal interest in the club's activities. The programs are v'-gf worthwhile because they are confined to only those aspects of science which are practical and understandable to girls. This year many scientific motion pictures, .ranging from spiders to glaciers, were shown to the club. At one meeting Iames Minnich, a student-pho' -grapher for the Maroon, discussed and demonstrated his hobby. The entire group visited the Elgin Watch Factory Observatory as an outside activity. In the fall the girls en- joyed a Held trip to the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. On the day of this trip they also attended a football game at Stagg Field at the University of Chicago. 50 President .......,........ ...... - -...-.- ......,.....

XVaggnner New Discoveries Under the Microscope Since its beginning si" '-ars 2' the Senior Science Club has been outstanding both in succers with which it has carried out its purpose 5 promoting interest in science and. in its service to the school. f Membership in the organization is limited to upperclass boys who are taking chemistry or physics, and since most of them have science hobbies, the club meetings include discussions and demonstrations of these hobbies, and thus is presentcia program which holds I1 definite interest for every membc.. Each student in the club participates in at least one meeting each year, in which he presents to the best of his ability a motion picture, a demonstration, or a talk connected with his particular hobby. The program committee also arranges to have outside speakers to present topics linked closely with the hobbies of club members. One such program was particularly interesting in that Louis Kaptain, the first president of the Senior Science Club, whose hobby is radio and who now operates his own radio shop, gave an instructive talk on the future of the radio. However, the club exists not only for its own interests but also for those of the whole school. One project of the group is to sponsor Friday movies which provide entertainmc. 1 for the student body at a small cost. The club also brings one outstanding program before the Elgin public each year, this year Dr. C. I. Albrecht gave a timely illustrated lecture on Ethiopia. The proceeds of these activities are used to buy or rent movies for school u The amplifying system owned by the club is used extensively by the public .speaking classes and by the athletic department in broadcasting football and basket- ball games. Through the cooperation and active interest of every member, the Senior Science Club has enjoyed a most successful year. 5 1 W y--- -- '- '--- -- f-- - - - - T-:----Q-fved ,- v f- - - i ' -z Z -' '4' 3."':lr" H Z 5 Back row: I.

Eickmeier TIIE GEIJGBAPHY CLUB The Geography Club is made up of students who have taken or are taking geography. Once a month the members meet to enjoy a program planned by the officers of the club with the help of Mr. Beckner. These programs are usually movies or talks by outside people who have visited or are connected with interesting places. The club has purchased several reels of film with money earned from the sale of candy to students who take their lunch at noon. At one meeting, Coach Wayne Replogle of the Elgin Academy, who is a summer ranger at Yellowstone National Park, spoke on his experiences. At another, Mr. Walter Wilson told about his visit in the Erie Canal district. The club also enjoyed a talk given by Miss Leonora Runge, who told of her experiences at the Grand Canyon last summer. Motion pictures on the work of the atmosphere, ground water, and ice, and on the subject, geology, were also presented as part of the year's program. All these pictures belong to the school. The club also enjoyed a picture showing the scenic route of the Milwaukee Railroad through the Northwest. Mr. Beckner has made this club an inspirational one. Its purpose is to give additional help to geography students and to stimulate interest in that subject by giving programs on topics for which there is no time in the classroom. This club, with over seventy members, is one of the largest in school. 52 Pfvisltlent ................. ............ L ......... R ussell Kalk Vice President..- .......... ,LL ................

M iss Mary Peters, Miss I-Iortense Wilson A Mathematical Victory The purpose of the Mathematics Club is to give its members some of the history of mathematics, to show them how various tables and formulae are derived, and-to present material for which there is not time in class. This club is open to any student who has taken algebra for a semester with a grade of eighty or above. About thirty members belonged to the organization this year. The programs for the monthly meetings are planned by a student committee headed by the vice president and aided by the sponsors. The members of the club are allowed to suggest what they would like to have in their programs. A A mathematical chalk talk was presented for one of the meetings. This talk consisted of a demonstration showing how facial expres- sions, human figures, and various designs can be represented by the use of only lines and circles. A play named "Flatland" was presented at another meeting. This play showed what the conditions would be in a land with only two dimensionsg for instance, there would be no height, and people would have difficulty in distinguishing one an- other becauses a person could see in only one dimension. In our three dimension world We can see only two dimensions at a time. A whole meeting was devoted to the history of zero because of its importance. Before that number was invented, there was little prog- ress in mathematics because great difficulty was experienced in writ- ing certain numbers such as ten and tvventy. At a Christmas pro- gram the members enjoyed mathematical songs and gamesg Miss Peters surprised the club with refreshments. At nearly every meeting the members tried their hand at solving mathematical puzzles. 53 Jiang 4 THE JUN lllll BIIIDMEN The Iunior Birdmen is a new addition to our extensive program of extra-curricular activities. This club, a branch of a nation-wide organization, was organized last October with a large original en- rollment. Any boy interested in aviation may join, as membership is not restricted and there are no entrance requirements. Based on the army principle, the club instead of having the conventional officers has a commander, a captain, and a sergeant-at-arms. The purpose of the Iunior Birdmen is to study aviation in all its forms. Air travel is vitally important to the world today, and it will play an ever increasing part in the future. Club members learn the fundamental principles of flying and aircraft construction by building models and studying types of airplanes. These principles are valua- ble as Well as essential to the would-be pilot. Knowledge gained through the club's activities and through the assembly and study of models may serve as a first step in the technical training for a posi- tion in the Held of aviation in later life. The club is an active one. Meetings are held every other Monday, and members hear lectures by pilots and other people prominent in aviation affairs. Kenneth Carlson, pilot at the Trout Park Airport, spoke to the club at one meeting on the safety of aviation, stating that nearly all accidents in air travel are the result of misjudgment and inexperience on the pilot's part rather than of faulty equipment. He also mentioned the possibility of organizing a glider club in the high school. The Birdmen took a trip to Chicago to visit well-known airports and watch the operations of planes and radio equipment. An im- portant part of the program of the club was the meet held to cle- termine the builder of the best model airplane as determined by fly- ing ability and exactness of construction. 54 Rack row: E.

RIFLE CLUB If you have a rifle and are so inclined, Mr. Montgomery will be glad to teach you to be as safely destructive as possible, just join the Rifle Club. It is a Iunior Division of the National Rifle Association, and is organized to develop those qualities of sportsmanship, fair play, manliness, self-control and cooperation which are so essential to success in life. The club is open to any boy under nineteen years who will agree to obey the Sportsman's Code and the rules of the National Rifle Association. The high school club meets every Satur- day in the Watcli Factory Gymnasium, and the many boxes of empty shells stand as silent witnesses to the diligence of their practice. Through training and perseverance, many diplomas and medals in different degrees of excellence may be obtained. The awards are received in the following order: pro-marksman, marksman, marks- man first-class, sharpshooter, "possible 500" bars, expert rilieman, and distinguished rifleman. In Elgin High, these boys have attained the expert rildeman degree: George Hart and Robert Iuenger. These boys are sharpshooters: Lee Therrien, Wesley Mondy, Henry Dreyer, Iames Crawford, Robert Keegan, Robert Chelseth, Dick Prideaux, Robert Runge, Kenneth Rapalee, and Iames Chase. Regular school contests have been officially organized recently, teams formed from the best marksmen have competed with' a similar team from other schools including Ioliet, East Aurora, and West Aurora. Since members must abide by the Sportsman's Code and the rules of this code include every possible precaution against a misguided shell, Rifle Club membership is good sport and comparatively safe. In the three years of the club's existence, not even a minor accident has occurred. The Elgin branch is growing, and new members are cordially welcomed. Shells must be provided by the boys themselves. 55 IR. TRI-Y U . r ' pr ., V f- ' ,' I 1:v,ft,V,eJ,f,..,' clfffil ,. fl . I SENIOR TRI-Y Back row: V. Benz, M. Logan, M. Knuth, M. Lindquist, P.

JUNIOR AND SENIIJR BLUE TRI-Y'S The Blue Tri-Yis are favorite organizations among the high school girls. The Senior Blue Tri-Y is open to juniors and seniors, and the Iunior Blue Tri-Y, to sophomores and freshmen. The main purpose of the clubs is to develop the girls mentally and physically and to encourage a spirit of service and friendliness among them. - The meetings consist of very interesting talks, group sing- ing, style shows, and other entertainment. For Thanksgiving the Tri-Y's filled and distributed bas- kets of food to needy families, and in February they spon- sored a party for the children of the Larkin Home. The members of the Senior Tri-Y enjoyed a football dance in the fall, a heart-hop in February, and their annual Tri-Y dance in the spring. Rack row: I. Rowe, V. Farnsworth, B. Pachter, M.

Bohnert 3:-yer fp The Hi-Y, a national organization, stands for clean living, clean athletics, clean speech, and clean scholarship. In Elgin High School, as in other schools, the Hi-Y is divided into tvxu groups, junior and senior. The Iunior Hi-Y admits freshmen and sophomore boys, while the Senior Hi-Y is composed of junior and senior boys. New members are admitted by a written invitation from the club members. This year in Elgin High School both Hi-Y's did away with the informal initiation because of its tendency to give a wrong impression of the organization. Both Hi-Y groups enjoyed a yearis program which was both interesting and worthwhile. Movies, outstanding speak- ers, arid discussions constituted the instructive part of the progranig while picnics, theater parties, and dances supplied an enjoyable social program. IR.

Born, Mr THE PIl0TOGRAPllY CLUB The Photography Club, organized by a few members of the Senior Science Club especially interested in photography, is a new club, hav- ing been formed at the beginning of the second semester of the school year. The purpose of the club is to increase the members, knowledge of photography and to arouse interest in the craft. Through a better understanding of photographic principles, the in- dividual learns how to take the best picture at the lowest possible cost. Photography gives good training in observation, as well as an insight into chemistry, through the developing and printing of nega- tives, and into physics, through the laws of reflection and refraction. The club's activities are both educational and interesting. Because the members wish to delve as deeply as possible into the secrets of photography, the program consists of a little reading with as much practical work as possible. Some research work is done by individ- uals, who give reports on their findings on the latest inventions, im- provements, and methods in photography. For actual experience, the club has its own laboratory for the developing and printing of hlms. By taking a small picture, developing it, and devising his own method of enlarging it, the individual learns the practical side of photography and at the same time enjoys the interesting recreation that the work offers. 58 Back row: M.

IIIZAVYWEIGIIT FO0TBALL An enthusiastic group of fifty-five boys reported for football in September, and forty-three of them stayed throughout the season. Every team has its ups and downs, Elgin has in the past held its place at the top of the conference, but in the last few years the teams have had a place in the lower bracket. The low standing of this year's team was due to the inexperience of the squad, which had only five returning lettermen from last yearis heavyweight squad and one man up from the lights. These fellows were "Chuck" Smith, Captain "Gordy', Adams, "Iaclf" Schmidt, "Dan" Palmer, "Killer" Schmidt, and "Bill" Koch. The team seemed off to a promising start when it defeated its first opponent, St. Charles, by a score of 14-U. This victory gave encouragement to an exceptionally light team. Entering the next game with Maine, Elgin, as the underdogs, came through better than expected, but was nosed out by the close score of 7-6. The third tilt was on September 27 with York Township High as opponents, and we had the added attrac- tion of the dads of the football fellows attending the game in a body. Dave McDonough, small, shifty back, provided several thrills for the fans. Although on the short end of a 6-0 score, the play of the Elgin boys matched that of Elmhurst. Elgin's first conference game was played at East Aurora where they were conquered 25-0. East High had one of the finest teams it has had for years. LaSalle-Peru, the newcomer to the conference, came to Elgin on October 11 and went home with a 7-0 victory only after a hard fought battle. Their one touchdown was made on a long pass, the only time they were in Elgin's territory, Elgin invaded the oppenents' territory five times. Elgin's passing game showed improvement, but was not sufficient to overcome the visitors. Rockford, long considered Elgin's greatest rival, fought the Maroons the following week. The heavy Rab team over- powered "Pa" Roggenys men 19-0. The largest crowd of the season witnessed the struggle. The Elgin team traveled the next week to Ioliet and was defeated by the conference champions 28-0. Ioliet made two touchdowns in the first quarter. The Elgin players only once came near to making a touch- down. At Freeport the team tried whole-heartedly and once was on the opponents' one yard line, but the Pretzels' punch was too powerful. The final score showed the Maroons on the short end of a 7-0 count. The West Aurora game was played on Saturday, November 9, in a drizzling rain and on a 'muddy field. At the end of the first half, after Conner's touchdown and Smith's place kick, the outlook for Elgin was quite favorable. "Chuck" Smith crashed over the goal in the third quarter, but Elgin went down to defeat before West Aurora's fourth quarter drive, 14-13. Athletics, like business, have trends and cycles through which they pass regularly. Even though the Elgin boys didn't stand high in the conference ranking, they fought whole-heartedly up till the last minute. For this the coaches commend them. Next year's team is to be co-captained by Dave McDonough and Dan Palmer: Palmer is the iron man who played every minute of every game this season. There are ten re- turning lettermen, nineteen members of the "B" squad, and several newcomers from Abbott school, who brighten the chances to raise Elgin from the depths. 59 G55-Vigfg -gl, -jk, v 1 1 N 1 . 5 - ll ,in-,, . f swf-" Q. ,'A .w' 5- X N. x 5- lleavies Tap row: In LIClI.0I1,' Pllllilff, F.

A squad of seventy fellows reported for lightweight football practice last September. Only two, Ernest Brady and Frank Iacobs, were lettermen. Later the squad was -ct engthened when Barnett and Heister, both letterwinners, were able to get in under the weight limit. Mentor Kralft molded this aggregation into a team that could be surpassed by but few of Elgin's great defensive teams. This was due to the ability of the coaching staff and to the fighting spirit which this team possessed. Elgin opened the football season with St. Charles as its opponent with only two 'veeks of practice. As the scoreless tie indicates, the teams were evenly matched. Although the ball seesawed from one end of the Held to the other, neither team came within scoring distance of the opponent's goal. The Maroonettes received their first setback at the hands of Maine lights by a score of 18-0. Elgin was off to a slow start,"'and Maine managed toiscore all points in the first half. Inspired by many dads on the sidelines who were guests of the athletic board, the lights won their first victory of the season from York of Elmhurst. It was a 6-0 thrill- er, and 'it proved to be the best pre-conference game. This gave Elgin fans new hope for conference games. The Maroonettes dropped their first conference game to East Aurora 19-0. Elgin showed great spirit and lots of fight, but the defense was not strong enough to break .ip the opponents' running attack. The Krahft- men welcomed LaSalle-Peru into the conference by 'cfeafing them 14-0. The lights performed like cham- pions in every phase of the game. Rockford invaded Maroon field October 18 and defeated Elgin 3-0 by a field goal in the final second of play. This, as usual, was the outstanding game of the season. The game was one of the best ever witnessed on Maroon Held. The season's largest crowd saw the Rabbits three times push within our 2 yard line, and each time the E. H. S. ponies staged an air-tight defense, forcing the opponent to give up the ball on downs. With the oval resting on Elgin's 7 yard line, in possession of Rockford, Petapeck kicked the field goal which gave Rockford its third conference victory. The following week the Maroonettes succumbed to Ioliet by the margin of 13-0. Costly fumbles by the Krafftmen paved the Way for the Prison Cityis touchdown. Elgin showed none of its fine performance of the week before until the final period. The Elgin ponies won their second conference game by defeating Freeport 6-0. Late in the second quarter, with the ball in mid-field, Elgin started a scoring march. With Pilcher doing most of the ball carrying, the Kraiftmen made five consecutive first downs to bring the ball to the five yard stripe. From this point Pilcher crashed through the center of the line for Elginls touchdown. The E. H. S. ponies and West Aurora fought to a scoreless tie on Saturday, November 9, to close the football season of 1935. The game was played in a drizzling rain, and both teams slipped and slid from one end of the gridiron of mud to the other. Elgin fought to the eleven yard line in the last quarter but failed to score. The ponies lost only four out of nine games, and they will always be remembered as a hard-fighting, great-spirited team. 64 UPPER GROUP-HEAVIES. ' , t' - Back row: Mr. Farroh, C. Metzger, L.

For that reason, no senior is allowed in "B" competition. Fre- quently a boy is promoted into the "A" squad after spending time in "Bn practice. Mr. Mike Farroh's heavyweights had four scheduled games. West Chicago put their first team against the Elgin "Bus and defeated them 12-0. Fox Lake and McHenry also defeated the Maroons by scores of 12-0 and 13-0 respectively. A very interesting game was played with the junior varsity of Proviso Township High, Elgin finished on the short end of a 6-0 score. ' The lightweights, coached by Mr, Harold Perry, chalked up three wins in four attempts. They handed West Chicago a 12-0 defeat. The HB" team of the Elgin Academy was the next victim to the tune of 25-0. There were two games with Maine Township High, one was a 12-0 victory, and the other was a 6-0 defeat. Wingate, Haumiller, Richardson, and Prutzman are some of the fellows whose work indicates big things for the future. 65 Back row: V. Pilcher, T. Brady, H. Drcyer, C. Edgington, E. Luepke, I.

York Township High was the first victim, 28-16. Crystal Lake was defeated by Elgin 37-28. The first home game was with Woodstock on December 13, the opponents were smothered 42-24. The first conference opponent was the speedy and experienced Rockford team, to whom the heavies bowed 36-23. In the next two games Elgin met defeat. Freeport chalked up a victory 36-17, and Ioliet conquered the Maroons 40-15. Elgin lost its next tilt to LaSalle-Peru 29-19. Proviso, in a non-conference game, won a victory 32-17 a week later. The Elgin boys trekked to East Aurora the following night and returned home defeated by the close score of 33-30. The return match with Rockford was a discouraging defeat by one point, the final score being 31-30. West High won over Elgin 28-22. In the second game with Freeport, the Pretzels bowed to the Maroons 33-29. Ioliet, in its return game, lost its one game of the season to Elgin 41-25. Against East Aurora, Elgin scored sixteen straight points in the first four minutes of play. The final score was a victory for Elgin 39-35. The postponed LaSalle-Peru game left Elgin defeated 41-28, LaSalle's team was much faster than Elgin's. West Aurora's large team handed the Maroons a 42-33 defeat for the closing game of the season. At the Pontiac tournament held during the Christmas holidays, Elgin lost a hard game to Farmington in the last minute by a score of 29-28. Pontiac then eliminated Elgin from the consolation bracket by a score of 40-27. Next year's prospects are hopeful, as four of this yearls prominent players will return. These fellows are "Chuck" Edgington, 'LWi1b" Ashman, Vernon Pilcher, and Merle Childs. The Elgin basketeers lost their first game in the regional tournament. The victorious opponents were Woodstock, who won by a score of 39-28. Two of the regular players, Edgington and Stensrud, could not play on account of illness. 66 Back row: V. Grupo, mgr., C.

The early practice sessions showed only one returning letterman, Frank Miller. Reserves from the pre- vious year around whom the strength of the team was laid were: W. Newlin, H. Meyers, N. Miller, E. Wascher, L. Moyer, and P. Schuett. After only two weeks of practice, Mentor Krafft's outht opened the season by handing York a 29-16 set-back. The following week the lights trampled the Crystal Lake Five, 33-9. The Kraiitmen won their third straight victory from Woodstock by a score of 35-18. Elgin trailed 13-9 at the end of the half, but with Moyer, Meyers, and Miller hitting the basket consistently, they easily gained the lead. Elgin's first conference foe was Rockford. The Maroonetes fought a terrific battle throughout the contest, but were unable to gain a lead over Rockford. Although the final score was 36-23, the ponies played a fine game against a championship team. The Maroonettes gained their first conference victory the following week at Freeport. The battle proved to be the best in many seasons. Huck Meyers was the leading factor in bringing Elgin in on the long end of a 35-31 score. The Krafftmen gained their second conference victory in the E. H. S. gym january 3 by defeating a strong Ioliet team 31-28. The lights came forward in the last few seconds of play to gain a victory. Bill Newlin and Frank Miller led the scoring. LaSalle-Peru, newcomers in the conference, defeated the Krafft aggregation 24-19. Schuett coined three baskets and one free throw. In a non-conference game with Proviso, the lights dropped a 23-18 decision. The East Aurora lights de- feated the Krafftmen by a score of 36-29. It was a close game, but the Red and Black proved to be the superior team. The lights journeyed to Rockford Ianuary 31 and were defeated 39-23. The Maroonettes showed lots of fight, but could not locate the basket. The following week they were defeated on their home floor 33-26 by Freeport. The ponies lost a close, hard-fought battle to Ioliet on their gigantic floor 35-33. The lead changed hands many times throughout the game, and the winning basket was scored as the final gun went off. The Ma- roonettes Won a 39-20 victory over East Aurora. Norm Miller was leading scorer with 20 points. The Krafftrnen won their fifth game by defeating the LaSalle-Peru Incas 31-24. Moyer played great defensive ball and led the scoring with ten points. The ponies closed their Big Seven schedule by defeating West Au- rora 40-31 in a thrilling game. Moyer, N. Miller, Feinstein, Newlin, and Wascher were the outstanding Maroon and Cream performers of the year. 67 fs. x M 2 L eavies Firxt row: Walters, F., fCup- tainjf Pilcher, G.: Cbi111':, F., KCaptc11'r1 eleclj.

"B" BASKETBALL For the past few years a Freshman-Sophomore Conference consisting of East Aurora, 'West Aurora, Io- liet, and Elgin has existed to give the prospects for "A" team positions the necessary training. In these games a fellow acquires the experience of playing on strange floors and with players whose abilities are unknown to him. Mike Farroh coached the heavyweight division of "BU basketball. The conference standing saw them in the cellar, but of four non-conference games, three were wins for the Maroons. Abbott bowed twice, 26-21 and 21-18, while Dundee Filet defeat by one basket. Among the fellows whose work was outstanding are Raue, Thies, Penn, Harms, Rickert, Wellnitz, and Schwarzwalder. Behm, Sund, and Roth were ineligi- ble for conference games during the second semester because they then became juniors. Mr. Harold Perry had eighty fellows on his lightweight squad at the beginning of the season, but at the end he had cut this group to Fifteen members. The lightweight "B" squad finished with an enviable rec- ord, they were conference champions and won all but one of their games. Besides the conference games there were two tilts with Dundee and two with Abbott School, all of which were victories for the Elgin boys. 70 OTEIN lggyclfp Sligfly v0'gl4' LGI f n N-9' : ' -BM ' ' tfxsl C, Back row: Mr. Waggoner, Mr. Adams, Mr. Perry.

FACULTY BASKETBALL In answer to a challenge by the seniors, the faculty organized a team, held a few practice skirmishes, and began what turned out to be a five game "season," Two games were played with the seniors, two with the East Aurora faculty, and one with VVest Aurora's sages. Elgin played at an .800 clip, emerging victorious in four out of live starts. The first game with the seniors was a memorable one not only for the hectic struggle which the teach- ers won 27 to 25 but also for the accompanying activities. T. A. Larsen coached the faculty for this game and Mr. Lloyd acted as team trainer. Mr. Peck was water-boy, while Mr. Vonckx functioned as cheerleader for the teachers. Another feature was the band organized by the faculty. Throughout the entire evening, pure fun and good sportsmanship were evident. During this fracas, the faculty cagers discovered that they had the makings of a geod team. As a result, Mr. VVaggoner, who managed the outfit, challenged the East Aurora instructors to a game. The contest was played in the afternoon at the downriver gym. Elgin lost no time in asserting its superiority, and East Aurora trailed at all stages of the game, finally sustaining a 30 to 23 setback. Mr. Perry led the Maroon and Cream cagers' attack. The victory was made more significant by the fact that East Aurora's faculty team had been organized for a long while. Smarting Linder the sting of their previous defeat, the professors of East Aurora sought another tilt. Though they made a better showing in their game here, any hopes they may have had of avenging them- selves were clashed when Elgin's hoop stars subdued them 38 to 32. The contest was a thriller in which the Elgin quintet demonstrated its ability to come from behind and win. The next opponent was West Aurora. When the game began, it looked as if West Aurora was in for a terrific lacing. Elgin led at the quarter, 10 to 2. The lead changed, however, and at the end ef the third quarter, West Aurora was on the long end of a 25 to 20 score. In the final stanza, the Maroon and Cream cagers turned on the power, unloosed a sixteen point barrage, and smothered West I-Iigh's professors in a whirlwind finish. The final score was Elgin 36, West Aurora 33. The teachers' winning streak was broken in their last fray, the second battle with the seniors. Varsity players, barred from the first affair, were eligible for this game. For the first few minutes it appeared as if the faculty would make the seniors regret the challenge. At the end of the Hrst period the teachers led 9 to 3, at halftime they held a 19 to 16 advantage. Early in the third stanza, the students went into the lead and maintained it till the end of the game. The final tabulation was Seniors 32, Faculty 27. 71 Back row: D. Grupc, mgr., C. Schumacher, R.

Bob Gracer and Kenyon Peabody are twc returning seniors, Graceris interest is pole vaulting, and Peabody does the quarter-mile. Wilbur Ashman, a junior, majors in the high jump. Merle Childs broad jumps and throws the javelin, Bob Roth runs the mile, and Dan Palmer prefers the sprints and weights events. All three of these fellows won minor awards last year. Lester Batt and Lloyd Whiting looked good enough in practice to run in the half-mile and mile events. Eugene Tanner and Le Roy Steinmann, reserves last year, are doing well in practice. Others whose work seems promising are Bob Graham, Emmerson Mason, and Floyd Smithberg. Several freshmen have already displayed unusual ability. Mr. Arthur Roggen is coaching the running events this year, and Mr. Mike Farroh is taking charge of the field events. Since Mr. Roggen has been at E. H. S., he has always produced a good track team. Mr. Farroh participated in all track events while at school, but weight events were his long suits. The fellows began regular practice in the gym on March 10. 1935 Track ln the spring of 1935, fifty boys reported to Mentors Roggen and Krafft for the track squad. Only two major award winners were among the group, these boys were co-captains Don Stalions and Gerald Peter- son. Don Stalions was one of the greatest track men ever produced by Elgin High School. He was a high and low hurdle expert. fastest time in the high hurdles was 15.8 when he broke the old conference rec- ord of 16.4. In this race he defeated Denny of Rockford, who won the same event in the state meet. Don qualihed for the state meet his last two years, and last year Won third place in the high hurdles. He also held down the anchor position on the relay team. Co-captain Peterson was an excellent sprinter, but his work was over-shadowed by the greatest sprinter in conference history, Packard of Rockford. Although the track squad didn't place very high in points scored in the meetsli-fi which they entered, they gave their opponents some stiff competition. The team gained three points in the state. meet. Other outstanding men on the squad were: McDonough, broad jump, McCornack, half milerg Peabody, quarter milerg Roth, milerg Childs, broad jump, Ashman, high jump, and Palmer and Hood in the weights. 72 "I 1' .

Renner. O experienced mar Al Billings, and Elder Brown, lack Nichols, i. :hard lx 1... rt, Al Voss, and Bob Waggoner made up the team. Elgin lost its first dual golf in "ch in four years when East Aurora defeated the Maroons five to four at Phillips Park, Aurora, May 9. Al Voss and Elder Brown won for Elgin, while lack Niche. was defeat- ed, and Al Billings tied with his opponent. In a re- turn match, the Elgin fellows defeated tln' Aurora team. In two dual meets with Mel-lenry, thr, up-river team was victorious both times. The Big Seven Golf Meet was held at the Elgin Country Club on May 25 under the direction of C. E. Adams. Rockford. East Aurora, West Aurora, and Elgin were represented by a full quota of four men. LaSalle-Peru sent three and Freeport and Ioliet sent none. Elder Brown of Elgin, with two Rockford play- ers, turned in the low score of 81. Rockford won with 333 points, Elgin came in second with 358. East Au- rora and West Aurora followed with 370 and 388 points respectively. This eliminated Elgin High from the state golf meet. 1936 Giblf Golf has been gradually becoming interschool sport for many years. Last year a cup was given to the team having the best record in the Big Six Conference. This ractice is to be repeated at the tournament of the Big Seven held at Rockford this spring. Elgin High School has always had a line golf team. This year's squad is composed of nine members, and prospects for the coming season are very bright. Bob Waggener is the outstanding man returning from last year's team and will be an important factor in all the tournaments. The complete schedule of the season had not been made at this writing, but meets have been arranged with Mel-Ienry and Aurora. Coach Cliff Adams has charge of the golf team this year, and his squad has been working hard rounding themselves into shape. The squad members are Walk- er, Waggoner, R. Schmitt, Helm, Downing, Schroe- der, Geldmacher, Fuqua, and C. Rovelstad. 1936 Tennis Reporting for 1936 tennis were only three experi- enced players from the 1935 season and about fifteen others whose ability was a complete mystery to Gil- belt 1. Renner, the tennis coach. Two of the return- ing men were Stan Seimer and Russ Kalk, who com- posed one of last season's doubles combinations, en- tered in five meets, they were victorious in three. The other experienced man was Bill Newlin, who sorne- times played doubles and also came through with a fairly good record as a singles representative. When this book went to press, the complete sched- ule was not definitely arranged, but eight dual meets and three tournaments had been planned. East Au- rora, West Aurora, DeKalb, and either Rockford or Ioliet were to be engaged for the dualsg the tourna- ments included the Big Seven Conference, the Kane County, and the District. . H935 Tellllis The 1935 tennis season showed three victories, one defeat, and one tie from their Eve dual matches. Coach Renner had a group of nine fellows: Ralph Krueger, Stanley Seimer, Russell Kalk, Bill Newlin, Glen Mac- Tavish, Bill Gray, Dick Akemann, Richard Reinert, and George Kromhout. On May 16, the boys played a match with West Aurora, the result was a 3-3 tie. The next day saw a 3-2 victory for Elgin over DeKalb. Krueger and MacTavish won their singles matches, but Gray was defeated. ln the doubles, Elgin split even. Elgin won a return match from DeKalb by a score of 4-1. ln a return match with West Aurora, the down-river team was victorious, 3-2. East Aurora succumbed to Elgin on May 24. Bill Newlin won his singles match, and Krueger-Krom- hout and Kalk-Seimer won in the doubles. Elgin tied for second place in the County meet. Krueger lost in the second round to the county cham- pion. Kalk and Seimer lost an important match to West High. Gray and MacTavish won their first and second round matches, but lost in the finals.

Intl-alnural Basketball During the regular basketball season an intramural freshman-sophomore league was formed. Seven gym classes entered teams in the tourney. About seventy- Hve boys took part in the games, which were played two nights a week. The championship went to the fourth period class, which was undefeated. Members of the winning team are: Captain Knodle, Runge, Rovelstad, Smith, Anderson, Riebock, and Cook. The fifth period class was close behind with four wins and one defeat. They lost their only game to the cham- pions 20-19 in as thrilling a battle as any of our con- ference games. A new system of scoring was employed this year, for each man that was used by the team one point was added to the score. This encouraged more sub- stitution and thus gave every one a chance to play. These games taught the boys good sportsmanship and gave them an idea of real competition. Athletic Director Art Roggen and Mr. Mike Farroh managed the tournament. Intranlural Valley Ball A spring intramural volley ball tournament was staged during March and April of 1935. Mr. Gilbert Renner had charge of the tournament. Nine teams entered, and one hundred and twenty boys partici- pated in the tourney. The third period gym class, captained by Cliff Behm, walked off with the cham- pionship winning seven and losing but one contest. A complete lineup of the winning combination is: Albert Cook, Albert Kelberg, Marvin Boncoski, Vic- tor Grupe, Dick Heath, Robert Purkiss, Leroy Wil- liamson, Iames Kelley, Cliff Behm, Iunior Langhorst, Ed Lange, 'Nilbert Kellner, Robert Runge, and Wil- liam Rahn. Second place honors went to the iifth period team, which was led by Captain Bud Hameister. Their rec- ord was four wins and one defeat. The purpose of this tournament was to give the boys who do not participate in major athletics a chance for exercise and competition. The sportsmanship dis- played throughout the tourney was excellent. Gylll Class Track In the spring of 1935, Mr. Roggen conducted in his gym classes an indoor track tournament. There was a group of seven events from which each boy chose the six in which he desired to compete. The scoring was by means of a scale graduated from 10 to 1000, but this perfect rating was set slightly above the high school record. The various events included chin- ning, standing broad jump, one-lap dash around the running track C170 yardsj, sit-ups, running high jump, standing hop-step-and-jump, and push-ups. The way in which any fellow could get the best record was to show efficiency in each of his six contests. Instead of being the champion of just one event, each boy en- deavored to be a good performer in all of his choices. George Danner was the champion of the entire group, from a possible 6000 points he drew 5730. Bob Roth followed closely with 5722. Other boys who had noticeably high scores were Harold Matthews, 5705, VVilliam Fees, 56753 Theodore Appleholf, 5670, and Merle Childs, 5622. Boxing Boxing is a sport which may boys crave. Perhaps the Golden Glove bouts in Chicago have promoted a great deal of the interest in boxing around this district. The freshmen and sophomore boys were more active in this sport than the juniors and seniorsg this is prob- ably due to the fact that only the underclassmen take gym. The group of fellows met Monday evenings in the Franklin School gymnasium. One activity of the group was to present exhibitions between halves of the basketball games. The group also put on two exhibi- tions before the Maroon Athletic Club, two before the veterans at the state hospital, and one at Abbott School. In the latter, the fellows engaged in bouts with the Abbott boys. Those who were particularly interested in this ac- tivity were Alton, Parrish, Strong, Melclau, Hernan- dez, Rein, Contoise, Burns, Prutzman, Schliep, An- drews, VVelch, Lund, Smith, Baum, Clark, Gracer, Scheele, Krenz, and Harms. Dila nagers The athletic department considers a manager's job one of extreme importance. The coaches say that the manager is as important as a player on the team. A boy who holds a position as manager must be eflicient and reliable, for there is much responsibility in over- seeing the distribution of equipment and suits. ln order to become a First team manager, a fellow must have plenty of experience and must have received one award as an assistant manager. A manager of a col- lege team is usually given a chance at a worthwhile position after graduation because of the reputation he has made for himself as a capable worker and leader. David Grupe was head manager of the teams this year. Other fellows given the responsibility of man- agerships were: William Kollman, lightweight foot- ball: Richard Eckstrom, heavyweight basketballg Vic- tor Grupe, lightweight basketball and assistant foot- ballg De Los DeT:1r, assistant lightweight footballg and Iohn Tyrell, assistant heavyweight football. The managers' awards are merited by their hard work. Clleerleaders Carroll Rovelstad Charles Rohman Ruth Frisby Peggy Io Ansel Don Clark Le Roy Skinner The cheerleaders perform a very necessary, though rarely lauded, function in our interscholastic contests. This group endeavors to stimulate pep anaong the spectators and to instill into the minds of the players the determination to win. During the past year, the cheerleaders have secured more cooperation and a greater volume of cheering from the followers of the Elgin teams than ever be- fore. The staff is active at all games during both the football and basketball seasons. The position of cheerleader is unique in that even though his team may be completely overwhelmed, he must still carry on in his eHort to inspire loyalty and conhclence among spectators and players alike. 75 UPPER GROUP-INTRAMURAL BOXING: I.

H. S. met in solemn conclave and decided that there should be a girls, physical education department. Ancient historians fail to record that the an- nouncement was greeted with acclaim. However, if our predecessors could have had a vision of the well-equipped and splendidly directed department of today, their attitude would of necessity have been favorable. Ably supervised by Miss Wilda Logan, who is assisted by Miss Helen Ket- tering and Miss Betty Fedou, the department gives our girls constructive physical training both in the gymnasium and on the athletic field. lI0l!l'08fi0ll B00lIl -This year a ground Hoor room was converted into a modern and attractive recreation room for girls. Each day found many girls taking advantage of the oppor- tunity for playing ping pong, checkers, anagrams, or bridge. A Hostess Club was formed by the freshman and sophomore girls under the guidance of Miss Elsie Fletcher, here the girls studied manners and' social conventions. Miss Hazel Linkheld taught the junior and senior girls contract bridge. Another ofthe opportunities offered was a singles and doubles ping pong tournament. lI0llS0-During the fall and spring the girls, held house at Maroon Field is a busy scene of activity. There are girls all over the grounds playing hockey, tennis, horseshoe, or baseball. After strenuous play, the field house lounge is an inviting place to rest and gossip. The kitchen- ette is often used for making candy. On guest days and after inter-class hockey games, hot choco- late and graham crackers are served. Play Days-Play days are events that the girl athletes look forward to with pleasure, as they give the girls from different towns the opportunity of playing together. There are usually two play days during the school year. Last fall a play day was held at Maroon Field with the Abbott and Academy girls. This spring the two Auroras were invited to a play day here. 77 Senior Hockey Back row: M. Goldstein, F. McCarthy, M Schrieber, R. Frisby, L. Iessien. Front row D. Dewey, R. Sauer, M. Knuth, I.

This year Miss Wilda Logan coached two major teams instead of the usual four class teams. The girls selected were chosen for their skill, alertness, and teamwork. Girls that were not used on the regular teams were used as substitutes for those players who were hurt, tired, or absent. The two teams, which were captained by Marge Knuth and Gwen Muntz, both failed to win the championship. Knuth's team wan the First game 4-25 the second game was won by Muntzis team by the same score. Before another game could be played to decide the championship, cold weather set in and kept the girls away. A welcome party was given for the junior girls coming from Abbott School and for the incom- ing freshmen. Approximately ninety girls participated in the activities. The Elgin Academy and Iunior College were also the guests ofthe high school girls at a hockey play day at Maroon Field. Mr. E. C. Waggener, head of the science department, took moving pictures ofthe girls in action. These pictures were later shown in an auditorium assembly. 78 Interscllolastie T Tennis Team l M. Ansel, B.

TENNIS AND BADMINTON Tennis is the only interscholastic sport in which the girls of Elgin High School engage, thus a position on the team is eagerly sought by many. Who wouldnlt like to take trips to the various towns near-by and compete with other schools? Certainly few Elgin girls would refuse the oppor- tunity. This year, Miss Helen C. Kettering, ably replacing Miss Vega Morehouse, instructed the girls interested in tennis. The juniors and seniors tock possession of the court on Thursday evenings while the underclassmen practiced on Tuesdays after school. The interscholastic team consists of the three best players from each class: one player for singles, and two for doubles. Oak Park managed to rua away with all six matches played with Elgin at Oak Park. However, of the four singles matches with West Aurora, Elgin won three. Badminton varies slightly from tennis. The racquets are shaped differently, shuttlecocks are used in place of balls, and the net is higher than that used for tennis. The rules and counting differ, but the principles of the game remain the same. The faculty members who also enjoy badminton can present positive proof that it is a fine game. 79 Volleyball C.

The game is based on soccer, basketball, and football, and is played with a soccer ball. As in football, the game is started with a kickoff. If the ball is, at any time, caught in mid-air, it may be passed from one player to another until it touches the ground, if it is not caught, it must be kicked by the players. Scores can be made by penalty kicks, drop kicks, touchdowns, or field goals. Two speedball teams were formed, they were captained by Dorothy Gilomen and Flora Iacobson. VIILLEYBALI. When four hundred enthusiastic girls enter wholeheartedly into any event, that event is sure to be successful. This is undoubtedly why the inter-gym-class volley ball tournament held last fall proved such a success. Teams composed of members of freshmen and sophomore gym classes participated in an elim- ination tournament. The exciting finals were won by the seventh period team captained by Mary Ella Waterman. The hard-fighting losers were the third period team led by Iune McDonough. At the completion of the tournament a group of upperclassmen challenged the champions, and in two games played during the November meeting of the G. A. A. the junior-senior girls were victorious in one game, and the underclassmen, in the other. 80 Bound Robin Winners R. Svenscn A. Kempik L. Iessien D. Gilomcn D. Harms M.

The teams were composed of girls from all the classes. This gave every girl in school an equal chance to play. The First round, in many close and exciting games, proved the teams to be comparatively equal. From the beginning of the tournament, the teams captained by Mary Schrieber and LaVerne Iessien were favored to win. In the final game, LaVerne's team emerged victorious by a decided margin, 32-21. The round robin tournament has always been a favorite, and more than sixty girls participated in this particular tourney this year. Independent Basketball During Christmas vacation every year an Independent Basketball Tournament is held. Those interested in basketball form their own teams. The teams calling for honors this year were the Tiddledywinks, headed by Dorothy Gilomen, and the Man-hole Covers, led by Marjorie Adams. The Tiddledywinks won from the Man-hole Covers by a score of 25-21. 81 Senior Team R. Frisby M. Schrieber R. Sauer I. McLaren L. Iessien V. Allen Junior Team D. Harms P. Millen G. Muntz D. Gilomen I.

Schumacher BASKETBALL Toward the end of the basketball season a new kind of contest, the home room tournament, was introduced. This kind of tournament offers the best competition because the opposition is more evenly divided. The different home rooms were combined to get enough players to complete one team. As a result, only three junior and three senior teams were organized. Captains were elected, and practice games were played to insure the coordination of the players. Betty Monroe's team defeated each of the junior teams, while La Verne Iessien's team won from all senior com- petitors. In a Final game between the junior and senior winners, the seniors Won by a small margin. The starting signal-a mighty jump-action! The inter-gym class basketball tournament is un- der way, and it is a hard-fought battle if ever there was one. Teamwork-cooperation! Keep your eye on the ball! Watch your man! Alert players zealously guard their zones, centering their at- tention on that lively ball. The equally matched teams of Mary Ella Waterman, representing the third period class, and Margaret Haverman, the First period class, fight for the championship and end in a deadlockg and another exciting tournament comes to a close. 82 Basket-Shooting Back row: D.

Dundee placed first in the district, and Wheaton, third. This is the seventh year Elgin has competed in the state contest. In 1931 Elgin placed first in the state, and in 1934, First in the district. On March 16, twenty-six girls-five seniors, thirteen juniors, seven sophomores ,and one fresh- man-shot the eight spots. The lowest score of ten was made by Betty I-Iawley, a freshman. Ethel Mae Rane was next with a score ot eleven. To be eligible, each girl must be a member of the G. A. A., she must be passing in four sub- jects, and she must have had a heart and lung examination just prior to the contest. Each school is required to enter at least one half of the total number of G. A. A. members who have been out for eight weeks of basketball. "E" Awards The attainment of "E" awards is difficult enough to make it an honor to be the possessor of one. Letters are awarded on the point system. Iuniors work hard to earn the 1600 points neces- sary to receive an "I", Ambitious seniors add to their previous scores in order to obtain the 2000 points required for an "I" on an emblem in the shape of the State of Illinois. Scholarship, sportsmanship, adherence to hygienic rules, and good posture habits are among the requisites for securing awards, thus they symbolize not only physical skill, but healthy habits of living. 83 Senior State Award w7illllBl'S Jl111'ge K1111rh, Louise Miller, Belly Wilkillf. lane!

Szfcremry Vice Prcsizfelzt SENl0ll CLASS IIISTIJIIY The Class of '36l VVill it be remembered in the years to come? Three hundred and eighty-nine freshmen, entering in the year of 1932, gave the warn- ing to "sit up and take notice." They soon proved themselves a c1ass of high standards, participating in sports, dramatics, music, and debate. Gordon Adams, Erwin Mueller, Rob- ert Waggoner, and Donald Barker were chosen as representatives on the Student Council. The sophomore year found the students even more eager to forge ahead. The halls of Elgin High were "home" by this time, and the class worked together in harmony. Student Council members were Gordon Adams, Robert Waggoner, lean Rogers, and George Kromhout. One hundred nine students from Abbott School swelled the ranks of the juniors in 1934. Sheathed in their brown and orange sweaters, the class moved on to high goals under the leadership of George Kromhout, president, assisted by Ruth Logan, vice president, and Louise Miller, secretary. "Daddies," the junior class play, proved to be a great success. The class was represented on the Council by Billy Newlin, Betty Davis, Gordon Adams, Albert Samuelson, and Paul I-Iersch. The prom brought the year to a colorful close. Then came the final lap of the journey-the happiest and busiest year of all. Gordon Adams was unanimously acclaimed as president, together with Iames Sterricker, vice president: and Ruth Sauer, secretary. Billy Newlin was elected to head the Student Coun- cil, aided by Edmund Stohr, Donald Barker, George Hart, and Marge Knuth. "The Swanf' a play of royalty, was presented in December of 1935. The Iune prom and the graduation exercises brought this happy year to a close, and the seniors passed on, leaving their footprints on the Sands of Time. 85 if A fffz. ' -I rf? ' . l . ' il .-1 .
