They have been most evident at Central, but Abbott has not been free from its influence. The pounding and ripping of the wrecking crew, the thundering of the gasoline shovel, the whine of the saw, the pounding together of the forms, the puff of the steam engine that works the crane, the chatter of the riveting machine: all made concentration diffi- cult and studies boresome. The eager watching of the work to see how, girders were put up, whether the workmen had poured cement, how many bricks were being laid, has been regretfully interrupted by class work. Much speculation about rooms, plans, decora- tion has been in the air. Frequent conferences of entire departments to discuss details of new rooms, rearrange- ment of old, new equipment, together with the visiting of other schools to discover the latest equipment and methods have kept teachers alert to the coming changes. "Coming events cast their shadows before"-so says the Mirror in its announcement of coming events. And so says this Maroon of 1938 as it pictures for you the school of today under the shadow of our school of tomorrow. tint E U UUEH H K 4-- s ' 1152" ,aixiibmv V-waaursau qammnsuuw., -. 5Si15?xL+M call o if-fl i 72- SW who is capably directing educational activities in the present high school, who is continuing the unification of studies at Central and Abbott, and who is cooperating with teachers, students. and the people of Elgin in planning the facilities for the additions to the present buildings we, the stall of the Maromz of 1933. dedicate this hook as a friendly gesture of Welcome.

BOARD OF EDUCATION The members of the board of education should be commended for their desire to serve, in a democratic capacity, a public office for which they receive no personal reward. They are noted for their characteristic consciousness of the needs of the schools. Mr. Paul F. Born, president of the hoard, realized a need for conserving the eyesight of the students and, unable to hnd "White" blackboards, developed them himself. The board deserves genuine appreciation from the students of the Elgin High School for its many success- ful accomplishments, particularly during this year. as the planning for a maior building proiect required, without recompense, an enormous amount of time. The building itself, consisting of two additions to Central, will present a large number of increased facilities. Among them will be a new gym, a new library, choral rooms, band and orchestra rooms. health rooms, a cafeteria which will seat 350 students, and an enlarged vocational unit. Since the building will be twice as large after its completion, a new unifvent heating system is to be installed, and there will be adequate space to locate all departments in rooms contiguous. Because the contractors are ahead of schedule at present, it may be possible for the building to be completed earlier than December 18, 1938. At the April election Mrs. Harold Pearsall and james Stewart took the places of Mr. Kirkland and Mr. Page, retiring. Mr. Mattocks was re-elected. ll E fl! sf ADMINISTRATION M. R. S'I'l",I'HAN, S. C. MILLER T. A, LARSIQN, MRS. NIZLLIF M. DRYSDALE MISS ADAH A. PRATT 12 ADMINISTRATION The success of an individual in solving difficult problems, in resisting temptations, and in realizing his ambitions is largely dependent upon the character building and personality training secured during his highschool days. We of the Elgin High School are very fortunate in having an administrative body com- posed of men and Women who possess directive ability par-excellent. Only a man with remarkably sound judgment, genuine aggressiveness, and a considerable amount of initiative can earn the respect and appreciation of an entire faculty and student body as quickly and easily as has Mr. Merrill Stephan, Elgin High Schoolls newly appointed principal. Mr. S. C. Miller, principal of Abbott, is respected for his thoughtful and kindly attitude toward pupils who seek his Willing advice and counsel. The office of assistant principal is competently filled by Mr. T. A. Larsen, who also wisely directs and assists boys who have adjustment difficulties. Mrs. Drysdale is the director of pupil adjustment. She is very understanding and helpful in her con- ferences with high school students and merits their confidence. In Miss Adah Pratt she has an able and very cooperative assistant. HEALTH DEPARTMENT To be attractive is to be healthy. Everyone is impressed by a radiantly happy and wide awake individual, and the purpose of this department is to create in the minds of the students the importance of promoting efficient care of the body. The nurses stress the prevention of disease, and the Work this year has included an effective campaign for diptheria as well as worth while improvements in the sight-saving classes. Special Work in sight saving is being done by Miss Marie Ansel. M'iss Helen L. Revett is the head of the health department, and during her absence, she is ably assisted by Mrs. Charles Silliman and Miss Mary Britton. CO-ORDINATOR The Elgin High School has every esteem and con- fidence in Bliss Edna Geister who now occupies the olliice of co-ordinator between the school and the community. 'I'-Q.

Pm- STUDENT COUNCIL Those people who sit in the halls and who open your locker when you forget your key are members of the student council. At Christmas time they decorated the hall with greens. This year they sponsored a dance in the gym after school besides an entertaining and educational group of seven lyceum programs at Central and five at Abbott. Mona Morgan gave a presentation of "The Taming of the Shrewf, Bible's circus brought a well-trained collection of per- forming animals: pigeons, monkeys, ponies, dogs, and a bear. Max K. Gilstrap whistled his way to popularity, he imitated the birds of the western national parks, where he is a ranger. A charming young sprinter, Betty Robinson, carried her audi- ence with her to the Olympic Games in Amsterdam in 1928 and to the 1936 games held in Berlin. Some unusual bird pictures were brought by Cleveland Grant, who, using a high powered lens, got close-ups of birds. George A. Felch gave a story of the Amazon jungle and the Andes Mountains. Iill Edwards closed the series of programs with a personality talk. The Abbott Student Council acts as a helpful medium be- tween studentsgnd teachers. Their particular part is to assist in preserving the excellent morale to be found in the building by reporting petty annoyances and by co-operating in other constructive ways. STUDENT AUDITORIUM COMMITTEE For the first time a committee was elected by the student body this year to work with the faculty committee in the plan- ning of assembly programs. The purpose of the student coma mittee is to get the students' viewpoint. Although it was not chosen early enough to function all the year, it has shown the possibility of such a group.

MFADOXVS LIBRARY A library is one of the most essential parts of a school because it has an indispensable contact with every department. Elgin students are very fortunate in having a splendid selection of every type of book at their disposal. At Abbott Miss Kate Palmer assisted by Mrs. Gertrude Meadows, who also teaches eighth grade. makes the library a very vital center of the school. Miss Carrie VVilliford and her new assistant, Miss Bernice Palm, who has made a place for herself among us all, are ever ready to assist students in their library work at Central. There will be many outstanding facilities ofIered when the new Central library is completed. The room, approximately four times as large as the present one, with the conference rooms will seat 200 students.

The memory of the thrill of entering high school still lingers in our minds as we look back over the past four years. ln, the fall of 1934, three hundred forty-eight freshmen entered Elgin High. Edith Iohnson, Edith Carlson, William Richmann, and Elwyn King were elected Student Council representatives. With the dignified title of sophomores to give them new self-esteem and forti- tude, this ambitious group became very active in all extra-curricular activities. Student Council members were Dorothy Lucas, Edith Iohnson, Elwyn King, and Owen Prutzman. One hundred thirty-two students from Abbott School were added to the ranks in the junior year. The class was organized during the third year under the leadership of Owen Prutzman, presidentg Clifford Haumiller, vice-presidentg and Barbara Wilkening, secretary. The Council representatives were Edith Iohn- son, Owen Prutzman, -Iohn McEnerney, Vernon Pilcher, and Richard Iuby. The junior class play, HI-7ly Away Home," really flew into the hearts of all who saw it. The year was brought to a colorful close with the Iunior-Senior Prom. Our Senior year-the last and happiest! Iohn McEnerney was acclaimed presi- dentg Owen Prutzman, vice-presidentg and Barbara VVi1kening, secretary. Vernon Pilcher was elected to head the Student Council. Other members included Edith Iohnson, Iohn McEnerney, Owen Prutzman, and Robert Zigler. "Rose of the Rancho," a period play of the Southwest, was successfully pre- sented on November 18 and 19. Iune brought the Prom and graduation exercises. Another class, the Class of 1938, has graduated with many regrets and a solemn vow to "seek the higher thingsfi 35 HAROLD E.

They should. But dont forget floor talks and debates, news stories and edi- torials, pantomiming and play presentations, for all these help to make the English department one of the largest and most active in the school. Because of its basic quality English is required of all students for from three to four years. Reading, speaking, and writing, effective both for vocational and avocational needs, are the results aimed at by all teachers in the department. The correlated activities also stress these objectives in one way or another, providing excellent motivation. Especial attention has in the last few years been given to improving the reading ability of students. Since the first step in improvement comes with creation of interest, a wider variety of reading material, modern as well as the older classics, has been provided by means of the rental system for literature in the freshman, junior, and now the senior general English classes. This plan has definitely proved its worth. 55 LITERATURE CLUB Starting in October by enacting in pantomime the most interesting scenes of well-known books gave a lively push to the program schedule of the Literature Club. Following in quick succession came an illustrated travelogue by Wilfred Courrier who recently toured Europe, an account by Miss Lillian Larsen of her trip to Norway, a novel Major Bowes program during Book Week, a most enlightening lecture on writing by Miss Edna Geister, and several others to wind up a full and happy year. E.H.S. PLAYERS The senior dramatic club, the E.H.S. Players, has, since its organization in 1925, been the goal of achievement to students with this one interest in common-the theater. Its members are chosen only after they have demonstrated their ability to act or to work con- structively on the production committees of the plays given in the Elgin High School every year. Likewise, they may be chosen on the recommendation of the sponsors of the Mask and Bauble or of Mr. S. C. Miller or for excellent work in the dramatics classes. A carefully selected program committee assures a variety of programs. Some of the outstanding ones presented this year included a broadcast from station WHIP, a talk on dramatic events in the news by Miss Katherine Davery, an old-fashioned melodrama, a play review by Mrs. Donald Norton, and a talk on the theater by Mr. Emerson Crocker. MASK AND BAUBLE In addition to studying plays-from the history to the make-up, impersonating well- known people, giving group and individual pantomimes, staging walking rehearsals of plays, putting on an hilarious uCharlie McCarthyl, program, contributing to the three One-Acts "lt Pays to be a Pogglen and to the Fandango a puppet show, and analyzing the personalities of screen stars, the members of the Mask and Bauble found time to attend a performance of "Victoria Reginav in Chicago. This was the exciting climax to all of the above-mentioned activities in which the club engaged this year. 56 Literature Club Officers STANDING: M. Ironsider trea.v.,' F.

"Say what you like and do what you liken-that was their motto, and they stuck to itg that is, until such an insigni- ficant person as a long-lost father appeared upon the scene. The four children, Corey, Linda, Buff, and Harmer, were not used to having a Hfatherf, They were used to having a friend and com- panion such as Professor Sloan, who gave psychological advice to themg and even Pen- ny, their housekeeper, had more influence upon them than a father or a career-Woman such as their mother, Nan. They all Hnally came to the conclusion that some fathers were all right-especially Iames, who could straighten out so many of their troubles. The Harmer Masters ,.,,,..... Buff Masters ,,,,...

It was difficult for young Kearney of the United States government to awaken staid Padre Antonio, dignified Dona Patrona, and self-assured Don Luis to the fact that the California which they thought would forever be their home was fast coming into the power of the hated Hgringosf' led by such men as the un- scrupulous Kinkaid. Caught between the loyalty she owed her proud people and the love she felt for young Kearney was lovely and vivacious Iuanita. Amid much excitement, gunshots, clamor, and some romance, Kearney finally convinced the Mexicans that the U.S. government was on their side and peaceable relations were once more restored. 59 ABBOTT PLAYS tation of one-acts occurred April 22. L'Not Quite Such a Abbott School's fourth annual presen Goose," directed by Miss Kate Palmer, told the story of the young people in a typical American family. Albert Wasn,t interested in girls, so he said, but he fell in love before the curtain closed. The second play, directed by Mrs. Gertrude Meadows, was an Irish folk tale, "Twig of Thornf' The twig brought only bad luck and fairy curses and should never have been taken into a home, but it was carried in with all its fairy curses and disappointments for a certain young man.

BOARD OF PUBLICATIONS The Publication Board's principal purpose is to direct the policies of the highschool publications and to approve budgets and expenditures. The main activity sponsored by the Board was the Fandango, an annual car- nival replacing the Comedy Concert. About two thousand fun seekers spent a gala evening February 17 being entertained by stunts of all kinds. Some of the evening's highlights were the crowning of the Fandango queen, Edith Iohnson, dancing, movies, several style shows, a "Big Applel' contest, singing, and weight guessing. The concessions and stunts were presented by approximately twenty clubs, and over four hundred students cooperated to make the carnival a success. Although all members of the Board are seniors and faculty representatives, this year an Abbott student was appointed to act as a non-voting member in order to bring the two stalls into closer affiliation. The publications are associated with two national associations, the Quill and Scroll and the National Scholastic Press Association. 61 fI1fz'.,' D, DrTi11', .ll1tII'U0lZ Fzl.

MIRROR 'Alf you Want the truth then go look in your Mirroru is the Way some eighty students on the Central and Abbott Mirror staffs express the purpose of their Work this year. By pulling out column rules, by using a large number of pictures, and by attempting to cover every Elgin High School activity, the Mirror tries to present this objective in the most modern and most attractive way possible. All this has been accomplished under the supervision of Alfred A. Crowell, new editorial adviser, Walter M. Wilson, adviser of the busi- ness staff, and Miss Beulah Dewey, Abbott editorial adviser. Room ll5 has been typewriting department, headline room, and editorial offices rolled into one. From this composite room came everything from scoops on class officers to a multi-colored Fandango issue. 62 MAROON There is more in the making of a Maroon than usually meets the eye. Not only do the editorial staffs of Central and Abbott play a large part in composing the book by arranging lay-out, writing copy, taking informal pictures, and designing the art work, but the printer, the engraver, the com- mercial photographer, and the cover-maker also come in for their share of work. Meanwhile the business staff must sell the book both to students and to patrons. By clever cam- paigning methods the members secured more sub- scriptions for the Maroon this year than ever before. The camera left to the school by the senior class of l937 has been used by Bob Minehart and Her- bert Hanson, assisted by other members of the Photography Club, to make this book the lively memory of the school year it is.

At the Northern Illinois District National Forensic League Tournament held at La- Grange, Elgin won First in debate with nine wins and no defeats, thus qualifying for the national. Doris Ullman, president of the local chapter, won second place in oratorical declamation to qualify in that event. Much emphasis has been placed on special events with which Miss Helen Iocelyn has also assisted. They are original oratory, oratorical declamation, extemporaneous speaking, dramatic declamation, and humorous declamation. Many other speech and debate tour- naments have been participated in, with Elgin always placing among the pace makers. The Freshmen-Sophomore debate squad and the Abbott squad coached by Maurice O. Graff, offer invaluable experience to future Elgin varsity debaters. These people have participated in a number of tournaments, establishing a very creditable record.

FOREIGN LANGUAGE DEPARTMENT To open other fields of understanding for the students is just one of the aims of the foreign language department. Latin, the basic language from which is formed over half the Words common in our daily con- versation, and the language to which the inventor turns for a name for his new creation, also offers the student a Wide variety of material for reading: the orations ofthe silver-tongued Cicero, the origin of many of our mythological stories as portrayed by Ovid, the concise historical memoirs of Iulius Caesar, and the age-old tale of the fall of Troy, the wandering Aeneas, and the beauti- ful Dido. The study of French and German, besides giving students an acquaintance with the language, also teaches them about the music, art, history, literature, and customs of these Old World coun- tries. Students hnd it interesting to correspond with young people in foreign countries, to prepare original conversations dealing with daily life, and to sing the music of their friends across the sea. The study of a language other than his own broadens the outlook of a student and helps him gain a friendly understanding of foreign countries. Abbot! Lrllin Clam. 68 LATIN CLUB KINTER NOS! Rome! This city of wonders had beautiful temples, picturesque houses and shops, and the famous Roman Forum. Today these beautiful buildings are but wonderous ruins whose beauty still reflects the glory of ancient Rome. The Latin Club programs consist of Latin games and plays. A movie taken by Wilfred Courricr on his trip to Europe last summer was presented at one meeting. In Ianuary the Latin Club held the party which is one of the main events of the club year. Interesting programs and activities make "Inter Nos" one of the best liked clubs in the school. E Latin Club Officers STANDING: G.

THE GERMAN CLUB KDER DEUTSCHE VEREINQ Wouldn't you like to see modern Germany with all its booming industries and famous cities? Movies and talks which the German Club has seen and heard have brought modern Germany into the classroom. 'iSmall Industries of Silesiai' and K'Auto Highways of Modern Germanyi' are two of the movies this club has seen. In April Der Deutsche Verein, with the other language clubs and the Elgin branch of the A.A.U.W., brought Mrs. Florence Kidd for a lecture on K'Ancient and Modern Instruments and Musicfl The students have given talks on "The German Theaterf, 'AThe Wagnerian Festival," and i'Germany,s Place in World lndustryf' These programs have helped the club members to visual- ize the Germany of today. THE FRENCH CLUB ILE CERCLE FRANCAISQ With much laughter and merrymaking the French Club held its annual dinner during the Mardi gras season. Delicious French food was served, and during the meal the room rang with French songs. This was only one of the many highlights on the club calendar. A trip to the Elgin Academy Art Gallery to see the paintings by French artists was another interesting event. During one of the meetings, Wilfred Courrier showed the movies he had taken on his trip to Europe. French plays and music were also included in the other club programs. 70 Socml Science Teachers CZLYVTIV-1L: R. S. Ciirzwrighr, zlepzlrtmwzl lmizi, Miss Nellie E. Pzrrkirs, Km- ABBOTT: E.

SOCIAL SCIENCE DEPARTMENT In the development of the great civilizations of the world, including our own, only one unchang- ing principle appears. That principle is the one of changeg society is always changing. Some- times we think we ourselves can perceive this. More often the evidences are so disguised that even the most expert minds cannot tell us with certainty in what direction we are moving, Such a per- plexing situation creates great confusion, The social science department presents to its students a well-balanced program of studies which aims to help them in appreciating this confusion. Careful analysis of the many problems are made, particularly in classes in community civics, economics, and social problems. The historical development is presented in courses in world history, modern European history, and American history. By discussions which students themselves often plan and direct, by readings, by moving pictures, and by countless other means, graduates of Elgin High School have been given a preview of prob- lems which they can expect to face, both as citizens of the United States and of the world. To those who earnestly and sincerely pursue this work come permanent values: an historical back, ground, an inquiring mind, an attitude both constructive and critical, and a tolerance for the views of others.

Prin- ciples of color are studied, and the course is practical as well as cultural. Art stimulates good taste in the selection of clothing and the appreciation of beauty in many forms. lt also furnishes the foundation for the interesting career of an artist. VOCAL MUSIC ln a beautiful Cathedral setting arranged on the highschool stage a combined chorus of one hundred and seventy-five voices sang the songs of Christmas time. To further enhance this pro- gram the full tones of an electric organ filled the air. The in- dividual groups filled many engagements and combined again First Girls Glee Club and the A Cappella Choir won First division ratings at the district contest at Glen Ellyn.

This year the Elgin High School band was elected a charter member of the National Band and Crchestra Honor Society. ABBOTT ART CLUB One day in early spring the Abbott Art Club spent a day in Chicago, visiting Marshall Field's furniture section and the Field Museum. They were particularly interested in interior decorating and architecture after their year's study in these fields. With Miss Mayble Holland as sponsor, meetings have been held every two weeks at which members gave reports on studies they had made and all joined in the discussion that followed. A picnic closed the yearls activities. Afvlwrf Arr Cla,-xv 77 U. K. REESE J. F. FLETCHER Philip Chapman.

This year, when the curtain rose, the stage presented a typical Hawaiian scene, and the title, "Blue Hawaii," was fitting to the occasion. Black-faced men, love- ly maidens, the dress-suited interlocutor-lack Snellgrove, singing, dancing, instrumental music, and Hawaiian scenes, together with Director Iohn F. Fletcher: all helped to make the sixth minstrel a success. Laughs aplenty were furnished by the endmen: Robert Hedley, Iohn Arnett, Russell Schneider, Merrill Forney, Raymond Buthe, and Harry Engelbrecht. Amid music, pomp, colorful pageantry, and beauty, Catherine Hersch was crowned May Queen at Abbott's annual Spring Festival on May 19, 1937. The queen and her attendants, Shirley Kel- ley, Frances Mason, Doris VVilliams, and Iris VVilliams were chosen by student vote. The corona- tion in England provided the theme. Music during the program and for the processional and recessional was provided by the orches- tra under the direction of Miss Marion Laffey. Glee Club music, under Miss LaHey,s direction, also enhanced the program. Miss Wilda Hoopengardner was the able director of the fete. 83 A Cappella Choir BUICK ROW: R. l,I'."lII!'l', R.

MATHEMATICS DEPARTMENT The mathematics department furnishes a sound foundation for future life in whatever Held the student selects. Two years of mathematics are usually required for college entrance, and when any- one plans a career as an architect or engineer, for example, he is wise to include mathematics in his curriculum every year. Elgin High School offers elementary and college algebra, plane and solid geometry, trigonometry, and business arithmetic. All of these subjects require clear thinking and accuracy, and they train students to think through problems and reach a solution. Thus one is better prepared to meet life's problems, for he knows how to overcome his diffi- culties and reach a decision after taking time to carefully and calmly consider the matter. MATHEMATICS CLUB Haven't you often wondered about the stars in their constellations and how they got their names? The Mathematics Club is studying just that, for they are learning about the fascinating constella- tions which one can see in the sky on any clear night. The programs deal with reports on astronomy and other mathematical topics, such as the his- tory of mathematics, contributions of famous mathematicians, the reading of the slide rule, and recreational puzzles and games. In March the Mathematics Club joined with the Commercial Club and held a party in the school gymnasium. This was only one of the interesting activities which the club held during the year. M- mm .

Commander Machlillan gave three programs which were viewed by high school and grade school students during the day and adults in tbe evening. Another cameraman explorer, Canlield Cook. showed pictures of native and modern city life of that far northern country, Finland. ln direct contrast, Clar- ence Sorenson spoke about and showed interesting moving pictures of that mys- terious land, Arabia.

GIRLS SCIENCE CLUB Havenlt you ever wanted to know more about the progress of science in the world today, to learn more about chemistry, physics, and science in general? That is what the Girls Science Club has for its aim. Two outstanding programs this year were a talk by Dr. Francis Tovvner on 4'Drugs Used in Medicines" and one by Marvin Iohnson on uTextiles, Man Made and Hand Made." Every year the Girls and Boys Science Clubs bring speakers or movies to the school. The money re- ceived from these programs is used to buy equipment for the school. The club also has different social activities during the year and is one of the most popular clubs in the school. PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB Have you ever Wanted to delve into the process of printing and developing pictures? The Photography Club has had real experience in this by taking many of the pictures for the 1938 Maroon. The club aims to develop skill in the Held of photography. Taking eight exposures per month is the pre- requisite for membership. It is the hope of all the members to be able to learn to use the Speed-graphic camera presented by the class of '37, with which the Maroon pictures have been taken. THE IUNIOR BIRDMEN At the International Air Show in Chicago the Iunior Birdmen saw sixty types of planes ranging in size from single seater racers to giant sky sleepers. They also visited eight airports around North Chicago on another Held trip. Last fall the club brought to Elgin High School the movie put out by the United Air Lines, entitled "Coast to Coast by Air." The fortyhtwo members meet every two weeks and pass written tests to make advancements. RIFLE CLUB Because of lack of proper range facilities the E.H.S. ritie luggers had little practice during the beginning of the season. Spring instruction periods were conducted indoors. Outdoor shooting began in April at the Elgin Rifle Club's range near the Tyler Creek Forest Preserve. Many members shot for the individual medals of the National Rifle Association. The local club is affil- iated with the National Association. Rifle Club L. Lorhzzcr, fer. Iran.: A. Gorrlrn, rice prr1v.,' llr. Mw1Igon16ry,' D. Sirzrin, f1rf',f..' L.

GEOGRAPHY CLUB Havent you dreamed of touring the South where the sweet smell of magnolia blossoms and the picturesque scenery would enchant you like a beautiful picture? Of course you havel The Geography Club, with the help of W. O. Beckner, who gave a talk and showed the slides he took on his trip through the South last summer, was able to see it with their own eyes. Other programs included a talk and a movie on Hawaii by Miss Norma Nuernberger, and a talk by Alfred A. Crowell on the 'ADust Bowlf, IUNIOR IZAAK WALTON LEAGUE Woods, waters, and wildlife-the restoration and preservation of these three products of nature are the common aims of lzaak Walton League members, all of Whom love the outdoors. Through the efforts of the League, the school members of the junior branch planted one hun- dred elm trees April 22. One ofthe advisers who has charge of the extension of junior Leagues throughout the state, Clifton Adams, did much to secure national recognition for this club. 96 Eamrnezcial, gnofzutzial -Hzu, Zcanomiu and Home F"""I'rr fl' rr'-VVVFV Vl'I'r Commercial Teachers KICK ICOIV: Clfofgzf Vrfk.

There are classes in typing, stenography, salesmanship, transcription, hoolilieeping, and commercial law. After most ol' these are mastered, students may enroll in oflice training. This gives them the opportunity to put their knowledge to practical use hy doing olliice work for teachers and outsiders. ln addition to these classes which train especially for olliice positions, two new experimental courses have been added this year. They are functional shorthand and personal typing. This new Tyflfxlf Sflfcd UI? 98 method of teaching shorthand requires students to read these symbols quite a while before be- ginning to write. Thus the work becomes easier because they have so often seen the symbols prop- erly formed. Personal typing teaches one to type and to use the machine properly, but it does not work up the speed demanded in the 'business world since people enroll in the course intending it only for their own personal use. The commercial department gives excellent training in business subjects, and students practice on many types of office machines. Any one who has done his work conscientiously may expect to step into an office position without further training. As an incentive to industriousness, proficiency awards are made in typing, shorthand, and transcription. COMMERCIAL CLUB One of the reasons why the Commercial Club is so well-liked is the educational talks and pro- grams which help to prepare the members for their contact with the business world. A few of this yearys interesting programs were a talk by Principal Merrill R. Stephan on HBusi- ness Careers for Young Men and Womenf a demonstration of the dictaphone by Faculty Mem- ber George Peck, and a talk by Assistant States Attorney W. Ben Morgan on K'The Value of Commercial Law." This year the club sponsored a movie, "Two Salesmen in Search of an Orderf, the proceeds of which went into a fund that will be used to buy equipment for the school. I Commercial Club R.

HOME ECONOMICS DEPARTMENT Of such practical value are all of the courses offered in the home economics department that every girl in high school should enroll in at least one of them. Although it is not pos- sible for many of the girls to study foods or clothing, the op- portunity for including the main facts of both of these is given in the home problems course available to senior girls, The students of the clothing course tend to develop the traits of neatness, accuracy, tolerance, and industry through their pursuance of sewing machine use, pattern alteration, good grooming, weaving, and budgeting. Those girls who study foods tend to acquire these same ideals as they learn the value of foods, and prepare and serve entire meals. Any of the girls who have taken one or more of the home economics courses can join either huilding's Home Economics Club, both of which boast of an unusually large membership and which are affiliated with the National Home Economics Club Association for highschool clubs.

That is what the Home Economies Club is doing. The social activities on this year's calendar were a Mother and Daughters Tea, which is held every year, a style show, and a picnic. Some of the interesting programs were a talk by Miss Claudia Abell on "New Mexico" and one by Mr. Malvin Burns on "Interior Decorating." ABBOTT HOME ECONOMICS CLUB At the proper time they unmasked, and the Home Economics Club girls knew who was who at their first fall party. Games and refreshments were enjoyed in the gym, and the year was off to a good Start under the sponsorship of Miss Helene Fedou and Mrs. Laila VV. Fuller. One afternoon all the children at the Day Nursery were made happy by the same group of girls when they took gifts and refreshments and put on a party for the little folks. VVell-Filled baskets were presented by the Home Economics Club group to several unfortunate families during the year. Abbott Home Economics Club BACK lcowf W.

The boys are not taught a specific trade hut are taught to become intelligent tradesmen. The department is divided into three divisions: mechanical drawing, wood shop, and machine shop. liveryone vvho takes any of the manual arts must start with one semester of mechanical dravving and one semester of wood shop. In woodshop, cahinet work, machine work, wood turning, and pattern making are taught. Some of the useful articles hoys have made are tahles for the school, stands for the dehate classes, hook trucks for the library and the lfnglish department. and many varieties of hookshelves and cases. The student who takes mechanical drawing learns the lundamentals of the language ol' the industry in order to express himself intelligently in the industrial xvorld and on paper so that another person may vvork from his drawings. The machine shop students learn the properties and uses ol' various kinds ol' metals. Tempering and heat treatment of these metals form an important part of the vvork. Small lathes. grinders, vises, and various tools are huilt hy the students. These shops are correlated to give the students an intelligent start in the vast industrial vvorld of today. f - .. .

PHYSICAL EDUCATION DEPARTMENT HA sound mind in a sound bodyf, This old saying is the underlying principle of the physical education department. Not only does this department strive to build up health, but it also plays an important part in the de- velopment of the Whole personality of the student through organized activities. During school hours the department maintains gym classes, while the after- school hours are devoted to intramural events. Through the hours spent in this participation the student realizes the importance of skill, teamwork, sportsmanship, and fair play. ln these activities are worked out important principles ol' cooperation and clear thinking which will prove to be a great help in solving the problems of later life. The major sports which one may participate in are basketball, football, volleyball, tennis, hockey, base- ball, and badminton. Health classes have been formed for the juniors. These classes try to acquaint the student With the uwhyu behind the recognized value of exercise, cor- rect diet, and those things which help to make healthy individuals. The girls department initiated the use of a health work book this year. 106 Central G.A.A. BJCK ROIV: L. Benz, mfr. yer., fir,ff.' S. Kcffnx.

One long-to-be-remembered event was a movie showing camp life with its recreational opportunities. Miss Wilda I-Ioopengardner, girls phy- sical director, is the sponsor of the club. CENTRAL G.A.A. Don't you like to meet lots of girls from round and about? The G.A.A. members agree that playdays are some of their most interesting activities. The big social event of their club year is the annual hockey-football party at which a mock track meet was held this year. Other lively outside activities of the club were the dessert party, tobogganing. and icesskating. Members of this group enjoyed such programs as a movie and talk on Hawaii presented by Miss Norma Nuernberger, a program of modern interpretative dancing given by Miss Agnes Iones and her pupils, dramatic presentations by Minna Brady Lee, and a talk by Principal Merrill R.

HEAVYWEIGHT FOOTBALL Prospects for a championship heavyweight team were as bright as a burned-out lightbulb at the beginning of the 1937 season. Although there were a number of lettermen back, the lack of reserve power took its toll of games. The E.I-I.S. Manglers trampled St. Charles 13-0. Maroons-not mudders-lost to Maine 13-0. Confidence gained by a clean-up of Woodstock was promptly lost at East Aurora. The Maroon pigskin pushers rallied by defeating Ioliet and dampening Freeportls championship hopes by coming through with vic- tory. When the Final pile of the season was untangled, the Maroon and Cream heavies were in third place with live wins, three defeats, and one tie. Standings Scores W- L- T- PCI' ELGIN sr.

The squad was well-rounded with a number of veteran gridders and a collection of prospective material for shock troops. The little men shot through St. Charles 27-0. However as the rain during the Maine tilt damp- ened their powder, it failed to explode, and the game ended without a score. Elgin continued its trajectory by dropping Woodstock and Ioliet in splen- did fashion, and ended the conference by conquering Freeport to the tune of 7-0. When the smoke cleared, the Maroon and Cream ponies were listed in second place yvith five wins, one defeat, and three ties. Standings Scores W. L. T. Pet. ELGIN ST.

However, to reverse one old theory, 'iWhat goes down must come up," and to practice another, "There's no time like the present," Iohn Kraf:ft's ponies started things by knocking off East Aurora 40 to 34. The lights, captained by Winston Noiret and aided by such men as Ed Geister and Bill Qthe Killerj Ludwig, continued to make things tough for the rest of the Conference. Time after time the Maroonettes squeezed out victory by an eyelash. Elgin was given its only beating when they were tripped up by Ioliet with whom they shared the Big Seven Championship crown.

VVith most of the '36-'37 squad still intact, the Maroon and Cream bucketeers promised the rest of the Big Seven a real Fight for the top notch. ln the First round Elgin was beaten only by Rockford. Down at the Pontiac tournament our "majors, took the consolation prize. Old man hard luck caught up with them in the last half of the season when two regulars were lost to the team via graduation.

FRESHMAN-SOPHOMORE BASKETBALL To produce a basketball team of high caliber requires, among other things, boys with experience. In order that the fellows may start early to develop their game, the Frosh-Soph team has been provided not only to give the players much needed experience but also to enable the coaches to spot likely players for the varsity squad. This year the Frosh-Soph Fives tossed oil a long schedule and added a finesse to their playing which will promote many of them to the regular squad next year. 120 ABBOTT BOYS ATHLETICS The presenting of awards March 9 by Frank Meyers, the coach, culminated a success- ful Abbott basketball season in which the heavies scored five games out of ten and the lights eight out of ten. Gordon Banks and Roy Beverly were captains. The fall football season was satisfying, and Abbott was proud of their boys' showing in the freshman-sophomore team. In that activity the heavies won four games out of six and the lights Five out of seven. Peter Giardino of Abbott was captain. During March the corridors rang with cheering on several eighth period occasions when aspiring boxers afforded lively amusement for enthusiastic audiences. Bill Pleasant, Donald Tillery, Bob Smith, Vernon Wisser, and Alfred Wisser received letters. Spring weather meant track. Baseball teams were organized in May. Gordon Banks starred in last year's successful season, and in April it is forecast that he will star again this year. Abbott Lights BACK ROW: H. Svcrzdxrzz, B. Cawill, H. Bofzlin, D. Ramft, R.

The Maroon and Cream trackers came out with flying colors at Glenbard, but failed to click at Rockford. We placed sixth in the district meet at Proviso and dug up enough points to send Dan Palmer and Wilbur Ashman to the state meet at the University of Illinois.

Lords Park CENTRAL GIRLS SPORTS The girls were OE to an early start with fall sports. To speed up the routine work of the gym classes and leave more time for activity, squads were organized and gym class chairmen selected. Hockey sticksl Ballsl Back and forth they Hashed among the juniors and seniors with the juniors com- ing out ahead to win the interclass championship by a score of 6-2. Volleyball teams under the appellations nf Mounds, Butterhngers, Zephyrs, and Powerhouses competed to win the candy bars of their choice. The Butterfingers won with the Powerhouses running a close second. Basketball as usual was the favorite winter sport, with the sophomores winning the home-room tourna- ment from the seniors for the inter-class championship. During Christmas vacation an independent con- test was held with the Unknowns, a group of sophomore girls, winning the tourney from a starting field of six teams. The highlight of the basketball season was the Telegraphic Basketshooting Contest in which Elgin placed third in the district and twelfth in the state. Mary Miles was high scorer for Elgin with a perfect score. The newly organized winter activities at Central were tobogganing and ice skating groups. The initial skating meet was held at Lord's Park and the tobogganing outing at the Elgin Country Club. Badminton proved popular with the faculty as well as the upperclassmen. Tn last year's mixed doubles tournament, Dorothy Gilomen and Harry Sale defeated Miss Wilda Logan and Mike Farroh to win the championship. With the Hrst days of spring the arrows Hew thick and fast as girls practiced for proficiency in archery. The best marksmen enter the William Tell Shoot and compete for the Maid Marian Cup. Abbott and Central arched together in a tourney, which was vvon last year by lean Henley. Foul balls, three strikes, and a walk are daily occurrences at Maroon held in the spring although no special baseball competition is carried on. Tennis racquets and balls are later in prom- inence. Elgin defeated West Aurora, winning two dou- Thr New Refi Room in Central Gym bles and one single with scores of 3-l.

During the year the girls were seen on different occasions swinging racquets, shooting baskets, tapping rhythms, wielding bats, and even pursuing elusive birds with badminton racquets. Social dancing was promoted by the girls in the physical education department when they invited the boys to enjoy their parties. Mixed athletic parties were also sponsored b h' y t is group.

CENTRAL'S CALENDAR With expectant looks the students of' Elgin High School troop back in September to their Alma Mater. lmportant changes have been made. Upon the retirement of Mr. W. L. Goble, Mr. Merrill R. Stephan has been appointed principal. Then there have been additions to the faculty. Miss Bernice Palm is assistant li- brarian, Alfred Crowell, instructor of journalism, Maurice Graff, social science teacher, and Miss Sylvia Njust, mathematics teacher at Abbott. Another change is the beginning of work on the new additions to Central. October is Filled to the brim with events: the announcement of the new Maroon staff, the first lyeeum program featuring Mona Morgan, actress, several football games, the capture of five first places at the Ham- mond debate tournament, an informative and inspiring address by Iudge Bales, and an enthusiastic HBeat Rockfordn pep parade. Turn-about is only fair playg so on the night of November 10 the parents follow their children's sched- ules to become more familiar with school. Marionettes present the "Pied Piper of Hamlinf, November is a month when sports take the foreground. Our football teams fight important games with Ioliet and Rockford, the scores of which are 6 0 and 0-6. Tom Kennell, Bob Ackemann, Don Sund, and Bob Zigler receive honors for outstanding work during the football season. Hob Ackemann and Tom Kennell are elected heavyweight captains for 1938. Celebrating the close of the hockey and football sea- sons, the G.A.A. and the M.A.C. hold a hockey-football party in the gym on November 16. The first bas- ketball game played here November 24 is the alumni game. With the presentation of "The Rose of the Rancho" two nights instead of one, the senior class realizes a sizeable profit. Elgin High continues the custom of presenting a Thanksgiving of1ering. The blue finally chosen for the junior class sweaters agreeably, if brilliantly, surprises the entire school 134 in December. Approximately two hundred ten economics and social problems students visit some of the well-known places of interest in Chicago. Maxwell Street seems to have left a decided influence on the bargaining powers of many who made the trip. Those fortunate students who have lyceum tickets see one of the best lyceum programs of the year when Max K. Gilstra u, forest ran fer, demonstrates different bird calls. 1 io The glee clubs add a note to the spiritual side of Christmas when they combine in song in the highschool auditorium on December 19. Students and faculty combine to present former Principal Goble with a watch for Christmas. Then comes the long-awaited Christmas vacation which begins with its joyous Christmas parties through- out the school on the afternoon of VVednesday, December 23. Ianuary, 1938! A new year in which to do all those things neglected in 1937. The important events of Ianuary follow each other in quick succession. Live animals perform in the lyceum program given by Bibles Animal Circusg takes both games from Freeport by scores of -16 to 16 and 21 to 20 and also wins the Ioliet games, 43 to 26 and 25 to 21.

The arrival of the Fandango on February 17 with its concessions, programs, and crowning of Edith Iohnson as queen more than fulfills the expectations of the students who have been anticipating it since Ianuary. Those interested in sports especially enjoyed the lyceum program at which Betty Robinson, a vivacious Olympic star, relates many experiences of her athletic career. '4Revenge is svveetv is what the faculty members are thinking after their victory over the seniors in the facultyfsenior basketball game in February. In preparation for College Day on March 14, Chester Sanford, noted vocational guidance director, re- mains at Central for one day during the latter part of February to talk with the students about careers. The big day Finds college representatives all over the gym, the auditorium, the landings, interviewing seniors and helping them to know more about colleges before making their choices. Along with March comes Commander Donald B. MacMillan, engaged by the science clubs, to bring back a touch of winter when he shows moving pictures and slides made on his trip to the far North. Speaking before an attentive audience, Iill Edwards, during another lyceum program on March 25, talks on personality points which everyone can use.

Not quite so successful, the Orchestra emerges with second division. April seems to be a month for contests, The Mirror receives All-American rating from the National Scholastic Press Association. Capturing first in debate with nine wins and no defeats at the Northern Illinois District National For- ensic League Tournament at LaGrange, thus qualifying for the National, gives promise of our team's fol- lowing in the footsteps of last year's debate team which received second place in the National finals. Don't forget the All-School Dance at the Abbott gym April 25. Everyone who attends the spring choral concert in the evening of May 6 agrees that it is one of the most beautiful programs of the year. A week later comes more spring atmosphere with the G.A.A. spring dance. After hard weeks of preparation the cast of the junior class play is proud to know that their play, "Mother Carey's Chickens," is a success. Iunel Graduation! lt is hard for the seniors to realize that in less than two more weeks they will leave Elgin High School. So into this time must be crammed the Senior Class Day on Iune 3, the final exams, the junior-senior prom, the Baccalaureate address by Reverend Armin VVeng, and finally commencement on Iune 10. 137 Chrislnmx Play, George Fclch-speaker, Mrs. Herzmm Ft1fu'y- speaker, Christmas' Play, Abbott C6l7'I7lIZfJll, Bcfly Ro!vinxon-0lym- pie ,vlmz ABBOTT CALENDAR Back again, all smiles, on September 7, the Abbott students stand in groups, greeting friends and chatting about the summer fun.
