Because of the unceasing efforts of
the boards of education who have held
the guy ropes of the construction and
the furnishing oi the new additions at
Central building, we dedicate this
Maroon ot l939 to them.
we mean not only the growth ot our
physical quarters but also the expand-
ing ot our mental horizons, the perfect-
ing ot our physical fitness, and the
broadening of our spirit as we make
new friends and adopt new pleasures
through our activities.

Pictures pertaining to foreign language and foreign countries will

foreign languages and foreign countries will be centered in the depart-

nity for more extensive reference work and making such work much
simpler for the teacher.
As a second stimulus to the course, there are the various clubs. The
French, German, and Latin clubs give students a chance for practical
application in addition to the pleasure they provide.
Without an understanding of many languages the art and beauty
of the old world will be lost to us forever. The study of foreign
languages gives one broader knowledge of the world in which he
lives and a better understanding of English.

Social science is the study ot the activities ot hue
manity since the beginning of history and is ot great
value to the presentfday generation because it pre-
sents the problems that others have taced and coped
with. There are required courses in this tield in Elgin
High School, which are taught with the tollowing obf
jectives in mind: to give to the student a clear concep-
tion ot what various ages and cultures have contrib-
uted, to present enough historic background to give an
appreciation tor the various types of government and
social institutions in the past which have contributed to
or moditied our present social, political, and economic
system, to develop in the student not only an underf
standing but an appreciation of a government, what
that government means to him, and what his responsi-
bilities under this government areg to attord an underf
standing of the economic system that the nation has
today and a better knowledge ot world affairs and cur-
rent events, as our present age makes its own history.

Algebra, plane geometry, solid geometry, and trigonometry are studied
during the four years. ln plane geometry as well as solid the students make
models to show those things in which geometry is found, naturally and indus-
trially. Posters and diagrams illustrating geometric problems are of most im-
portance. Elementary and college algebra are taught to give the student
fundamentals which they need in the more advanced studies of mathematics.
Business arithmetic is excellent training for those interested in bookkeeping.
Shop mathematics, offered this year for the first time, is designed to help
solve the problems that arise in shop work.
The mathematics department looks forward with anticipation to the addition
of more mathematics rooms in the old building, for there will be displayed
examples of work done by this department. Of greatest importance, however,
is the special project of designing and constructing a sun dial to go in with
the landscaping at the southeast corner of the new building. This work is left
entirely to the students under the direction of their instructors. lt is with great
interest that all look forward to it.

"To familiarize the student with the scien-
tific environment of the modern world, to
develop some appreciation of the scientific
method and to show its advantages in our
present society, to familiarize the student
with the principles and techniques of differ-
ent fields of interest"-such are the objec-
tives of our science department.
These objectives are carried out through
the study of various sciences offered during
all four years in the highschool course. All
freshmen are required to take general
science. Biology and geography are offered
in the sophomore year, and chemistry and
physics during the junior and senior years.
Senior science, a relatively new subject, is
a non-technical course emphasizing the
practical rather than the theoretical. This
year a course in agriculture has been offer-
ed to all those students interested in farm-
ing and agricultural methods.
Probably no finer example of the practi-
cal applications of science can be used
than the designing and construction of
our new addition.
ln spite of the increasing number of Women entering careers three and four
times removed from hornemaking, girls are finding that their desire for knowl-
edge of the correct food and right clothes is rapidly making courses in domestic
science a necessity in their highschool days.
Economy in the family food habits Without omitting the essentials of a good
diet are stressed in the foods classes. Girls are taught to assume responsibility
in the planning of, buying for, preparing, and serving of meals With a minimum
of time, cost, and energy.
Not only the fundamentals of sewing are taught in the clothing classes, but
also the importance of color, line, and style in dress are emphasized. instruc-
tion in quality and texture of fabrics is given to the girls so that they may
better be prepared in choosing the right kind of materials.
As the name suggests, the study of home problems centers around the study
of home and family life. The students learn how each member of the family can
contribute toward the creating and maintaining of a happy home atmosphere.
ln all these home economics classes the development of good manners,
thoroughness, unselfishness, speed, and cooperation are stressed.

industrial arts is a part of general education, and as such, plays a prominent part in
preparing the students to take their place in community life. lt develops the natural
abilities, provides for profitable and enjoyable use of leisure time, and may lead to
the selection of a vocation. At the present time, courses in woodshop, mechanical
drawing, and machine shop are available, and plans are under way to extend our
program to better serve the students and community.
Man is a tool-using animal, and most people have an inherent desire to build things.
lndustrial arts provides an educational opportunity for this natural desire.
This year we have been able to offer unit trade vocational courses in machine and
sheet metal drafting, machine woodworking, and machine shop, also related chemistry
and mathematics. These courses are correlated to give students an intelligent start in
the industrial world.
Vocational education provides training for a chosen vocation and emphasizes skill.
Visits to local industries to observe specific types of work in progress are taken to give
students a chance to see production under actual working conditions.
Vocational courses relate knowledge to work and should provide a student with
the necessary skill and knowledge to go out and earn a livelihood.

opportunities for those students musically inclined. Not only is this music education helpful to
the student in his later life, but it is also helpful to him for his own amusement.
The music department has shown continued progress in the past few years in both the instrumental and the
choral fields Outstanding programs such as the Christmas vesper and the May festival are given throughout
the year. These are perfect examples of the excellent training the music department offers.
A large part of the third floor of the new north wing has been arranged and equipped for all music classes. lt
is believed that even better training can be achieved after work in these new rooms.
0 The highschool art course is based upon art interests and appreciations. The classes study
the basic elements of art and thereby learn to put them into practical creative expression.
The objectives are: a development of standards of good taste in order to discriminate between the beautiful
and the uglyg o training of habits of enjoyment through observation and attitude of mind, a development of
creative ability from the experience of daily living, and a knowledge and understanding of the principles of
design in all art phases from both its structural and its decorative angles. All of these foster understanding in
selling, demonstration drawing, personality analysis, architecture, and home planning, and wise selections in
purchasing. Through observation, life and nature in general are encircled for pleasurable and productive

Besides studies We are fortunate in having our education broadened
by many extra-curricular activities. Probably the department which con-
tributes most to the students' outside interest is the physical education
department. Education through physical activity is introduced to the
students by this department. Those activities are organized which attord

lation ot adolescent interests.
The conversion ot the old gym into one of complete occupancy and

ketball, baseball, tennis, and badminton. The spirit ot playing tor the
tun ot it runs high in both gyms.
Physical education also includes a course on general health rules, tirst
aid methods, and prevention oi common diseases. During one semester
ot the junior year, every boy and girl is required to take this course.

Helen Revett conducts extensive examination in the school system so
that any disease or epidemic can be quickly checked and counteracted.
This year the Kane County Medical Association ottered tree tubercu-
losis tests to all seniors and teachers Wishing to take it. These tests Were
given late in March, and 284 seniors and teachers took advantage ot
the opportunity. Those Whose tests proved positive Were then given
X-rays. This service should prove very helpful to all students.
Miss Marie Ansel conducts a sight-saving department that allows those
students to study highschool subjects who might otherwise not tind it
possible. Modern equipment tor visionary aid is accessible through
reports of the day.

Miss Carrie K. Williford, librarian, and Miss Marion Eh- The student library staff learn about library science
lenfeldt, carry on the never ending work oi tiling books. from the bottom up.
Abbott students make the most ot their fine library un-
der the guidance of Miss Helen A. Kocher.
The responsibility ot any organization which guides the reading interests
ot today's youth is indeed one which needs caretul consideration and direction.
Elgin High School can proudly say that twenty-six years of Miss Carrie
Willitord's diligent eitorts in the conscientious selection of books has greatly
succeeded in intluencing its students minds along higher intellectual and
spiritual planes. Miss Marion Ehlenteldt has acted as assistant librarian tor
the past year.
About twenty-tive students comprise the student library statt. These students
aid in all the work done in the library. Members ot the stait helped to prepare
the old library tor entrance to the new library. Miss Willitord has said, "lt
would have been impossible to carry on the work ot the library without the
generous help they have given."
The ever-increasing congestion in the old library has made the moving into
larger guarters an event hourly anticipated by everyone. The new library
will bear the name ot our dearly beloved former principal, W. L. Goble. The
Goble browsing nook will be turther adorned by his portrait as well as his
philosophy ot education.
Miss Evelyn L, Boettcher, secretary-registrar, attends
to those well-known program cards.
"l Wasn't absent fourth period." 'll-lasn't my English book been turned in
yet?" uMay l have the announcements for today?"
Such is the give and take by faculty and students at the Central and Abbott
offices. The organization and the outstanding efficiency in which the Work of
the offices is carried out is remarkable.
Miss Evelyn L. Boettcher, secretary-registrar of the office at Central, gives
invaluable service in carrying out the executive duties necessary.
Miss Mildred Yates, Who is in charge of the Abbott office, must be commend-
ed for the excellent Work she has been doing.
Enough cannot be said of the competent direction of Central attendance by
E, C. Waggoner, who has shown the students the value of regular attendance.
ln all parts of the offices the directors of the various departments have found
the assistance helpful of several post-graduate students as well as those stu-
dents Who are on hall duty.

9 ROBERT W. ACKEMANN Athletics-Hobby. Sports-Chief Interest. But time for orchestra
and Hi-Y. 9 ELLEN ADAMEK Ellen belongs to G.A.A., First Girls Glee, and Commercial
Club, but she finds drawing preferable to all three. 9 EARLE ADAMS "Sparky" prefers
beating a drum to cracking a book, and so he just ups and graduates. 9 BETTE AFFELD
We wouldn't be far "affeld" if we said "Bets" chief interests were music and reading,
though she has others. 9 MARK H- ALLEY Entered from Oak Park. Paradoxically enough
this "Dark" Alley finds sports and dramatics to his liking. 9 RUTH ALTHEN "Ruthie"
draws all her designs on paper which is as it should be. 9 OTIS ANDERSEN Mirror, Mirror
on the Wall, of lO9 and in the hall. You owe your popularity to this lad nicknamed "Odie,"
who manages to squeeze in photography, scouting, and dramatics, too. 9 CLARENCE
ANDERSON -Andy-Aviation-Airplanes. 9 IOYCE ANDERSON He insisted we list all
his nicknames of Swede, Andy, Ossie, Killer, so there isn't room to tell more. 9 RUTH
ANDERSON Commercial Club counteracts Ruthie's unstable interest in skating. 9 ELMER
ANDRESEN Active in both football and basketball, it is surprising that both Andy's chief
interest and hobby are sports. 9 MILDRED R. ANDRESEN "Red" divides her time between
music and sketching. 9 MARIORIE ATCHISON "Atchie's" time goes to her co-editorship
of the Maroon and her solo work in A Cappella, and she does justice to both. 9 MERLIN
AYLWARD In the past, "Murph" has belonged to clubs and been in sports, but now he
admits all his interests are centered on "The Girl Friend." 9 IOHN BADGEROW "Badgie"
is to Commercial club as Maroon is to us. 9 RAYMOND BARNARD "Barney" keeps his
interests hidden. 9 WALTER W. BARTELT, IR. lt's not surprising to find that anyone as
proficient on the drum as "Walt" lists music as his hobby. 9 MARIE BARTON G.A.A. is
the only club "Mary" seems interested in. 9 MARY BAZSALI Art and music do not hinder
"Gizz" from being in several other activities. 9 ROBERT BECKER The Hi-Y has been
aided by "Robin's" membership for the past tour years. 9 AGNES BECKMANN "Becky"
has to be sharp to keep up in GAA., Home Economics, Commercial Club, and the Library
Staff. 9 LETHA BEHM Letha's "Behm" may be legend, but she really is serious about
photography. 9 MURLAND BEMB "Bud" is chiefly interested in sports and photography.
9 GEORGE BELIEAN Evidently being secretary of the Izaak Walton Club is of paramount
importance, for "Shutz" is very blank on the subject of his interests and hobbies. 9 ROY
BENNER lust a kid nicknamed "Ioe." 9 EVELYN BENNETT Four years in orchestra gen-
erally give a member a greater appreciation of music, and Evelyn is no exception.
9 MARIORIE BERGER This president of French Club, ls also a Debator. And member in
the band, Or her dear old Alma Mater. 9 FLORENCE BERGERSEN Roller skating and
drawing being portable hobbies, "Bergy" brought them with her when she transferred from
Minneapolis. 9 EVELYN BERNHART "Sunny"-Scrapbooks-Senior. 9 MARIORIE BEU
Marge-Music-Mathematics Club. 9 HELEN BEVERLY Collecting animals does not pre-
vent "Bev" from her music and belonging to G.A.A., Tri-Y, and French Club. 9 WARNE
BLACKMAN Blackie-Band-Birdmen. 9 LOIS BOHNE Loie spends her spare time cor-
responding to students in foreign countries. Rather novel to have their "Bohne lie over the
ocean" instead of mine. 9 RUTH BONIN Despite the many clubs to which she belongs,
"Swede" still finds time for tending the large props at class plays. 9 IOHN BORN Here's
one of those boys who never managed to get in anything. Poor lad. Uust president oi the
senior class, officer in six clubs, music, publications, etc., etc.l 9 VERDELLE BROCKNER
lnconsistently enough, this president of Home Economics lists dramatics and music as her
favorites. 9 BETTY BROMAN Having been a member and officer in almost all the choral
organizations, it is hardly surprising to find music "Bets" chief interest, with outdoor
sports thrown in. 9 ROBERT BUCK After four years at E.H.S. we believe we can be ex-
cused for passing the Buck. 9 LA VERNE BUCKHAHN The Rifle Club is certain of being
supplied with "Buck" shot as long as La Verne is a member, and what would the band
do without him? 9 HARMON BURBURY "Burb" knows all the best places to eat and col-
lects menus as he goes. 9 ELAINE BURGERSON The quaint hobby of bead weaving does
not interfere with Elaine's membership in G.A.A. and Home Economics. 9 CHARLOTTE
BURMEISTER We give you "Chic," the girl friend of the twirling dervish.
Senior class officers, Katherine
Hersch, secretary, and Iohn Born,
president, conduct a class meeting.

9 EARL BURNS Dancing and sports seem harmless enough hobbies, but remember, like
coal, "Pete" Burns. 9 ROBERT CARLSON "Carly," the Birdman, prefers everything out of
doors. 9 ALICE CARPENTER Maroon business staff has precedent over German Club,
G,A.A., and Home Economics as far as "Al" is concerned. 9 WILBUR CARR "Wilb"
"Carr's" for football and electrical engineering. 9 DOROTHY CHANDLER Tri-Y and G.A.A.
tie for Dot's interests. 9 ELEANOR CHESSMAN "Chessie" unlike ulessie I." uses her
spare time to study her favorite subject-dramatics. 9 EVELYN CHRISTENSEN We won-
der if "Toddy's" hobby is collecting shoes, she has such cute ones. 9 DORIS CIRAULO
Doris, following in the family tradition, prefers G.A.A. and sports. 9 MARIORIE CLARK
Marge plays no favorites and joins Home Economics, Commercial Club, and G.A.A. and
still finds time for work on the Mirror Staff. 9 WARD CLARK "Wardy" jumps from the
duties in Hi-Y to Mirror Staff, to lzaak Walton, and so to Commercial Club. 9 PAULINE
CLENDENING "Polly" is a true lover of the drama-Particularly the acting phasefShe
does lots of other things, but-She's the gal who plays in plays. 9 GRIFFIN COCKRELL
The creator of the Lonely Rainjeer, Cluck Rogers, and Cholly Chan thinks up new plots
while he builds airplanes. 9 HELEN COHEN Her participation in clubs and Maroon staff
-Produce much the same reaction-She likes them all, she's active in all, but-"lt's driving
her to distraction." 9 FLORENCE COLLINS Florence prefers music to sports. 9 RUTH
CONVERSE "Ruthie," "Lou," "Ella"-By any name she still maintains that her hobby is
drawing house plans. 9 CLYDE COOPER What is so rare as a "Bud" in Iunefand he
goes out for sports, tool 9 ANNE COSGROVE She goes in for sports "anne" basketball
"anne" G.A.A. 9 FLORENCE COX "Flossie" likes G.A.A. and sewing, but lately it's been
mostly sewing. 9 BARBARA CRAFTS A "Barb" in the hand is Worth two on the bush
especially when she's treasurer of the Tri-Y, in A Cappella, on the Mirror staff, in the plays,
-and she's pretty too. 9 IAMES CRAWFORD ln general lim likes sports, in particular, ice-
skating. 9 HAZEL CULBERSON ls her interest in embroidering due to her membership
in the Home Ec Club? 9 IUNE DAHLGREN This ex-citizen of Rockford finds Elgin is also
able to stimulate her interests in ice-skating and dramatics. 9 GEORGE DAMISCH "Geo"
seems to have a monopoly on the office of treasurer-being treasurer of both Math Club
and Hi-Y-and puts his practice to good use on the Maroon. 9 HOWARD DANIELEK Auto
racing is not the most pacific of hobbies, but if that's what Howie wants-we don't "car."
9 GEORGE DANIELS Business manager of the Maroon. The guy who doles us the money.
He amuses the staff with his puns, but his puns are seldom punny. 9 BEATRICE DANNER
"Betty Lou," active in G.A.A. and Home Ec, wants to be a nurse. Will she practice archery
on her patients? 9 DARYLE DAY "Day is done" and is he glad? Motorcycles are his fad.
9 DONALD DEPEW Don doesn't let his membership in Commercial Club interfere with his
photography. 9 DAVID DICE Dave is the president of the ever growing EEA. We looked
for other activities he was in, but no "Dice" 9 CECIL DICKERSON The secretive lad lists
only his nickname, "Curly." 9 ROBERT DIEKMAN Another rninority Hitler would object to
-Bob's preference for the Glee Club over the German Club. 9 ADA DOIEL Iumping from
Plato Center to St. Charles and finally to Elgin gave Ada no time to acquire a nickname,
but increased her interest in reading and sports. 9 DORIS DONNELLY Even with her
creative genius she couldn't think of anything to say for herself. 9 ROBERT DOWNING
A devotee of traveling, he pays lightning visits to both the Mirror and Maroon and is nick-
named "Lefty." Right? 9 MARIORIE DROUGHT Marge's portrayal in the junior class play
led to membership in the Players. She's in G.A.A., Home Ec, and A Cappella, too.
9 ROBERT DUEWEL Bob, the lad with the "Duewel" personality, flits from Commercial
Club to the Library Staff. 9 RAYONNE DUMBAULD Technically we're a bit vague as to
the term applied to a swing pianist. But in this case its a "Bunny." 9 ALBERT DUNNING
Doing his schoolwork at home has stimulated his creative ability. 9 DOROTHY EASTON
Dottie-Dancing-Dimples. 9 DOROTHY EBERLY "Dot" has hopes of being a secretary,
but she'll compromise by being treasurer of Commercial Club. 9 MERLE EHORN Merle
has trained racing homer pigeons. They never get "Mike" fright. 9 RICHARD EHORN
Dick, a member of the lzaak Walton League, races pigeons. Wings on Liberty.
Vice-president, Gordon Rovelstad,
and class adviser, Miss Mary Peters,
Senior actors Brockner and
9 ROLAND EHORN "Rollie" must be a radical. He prefers hockey to pigeons. 9 WILLIAM
EICHHORST "Ike"--lzaak Walton-Irrepressible. 9 VIRGINIA ELLIOTT "Gin"-German
Club-G.A.A. 9 LEROY ELVIN "Slick" goes in for intramural basketball and the Izaak
Walton League. 9 CHARLOTTE EMERSON Nickname-'lChar." Hobby-Sports. Clubs-
Tri-Y, G.A.A. 'I'hat's what our "reporter" reports. 9 MARY ERDMANN Although Mary
admits her favorite activities are musical, she does not slight G.A.A. or E.H.S. Players.
9 RUTH ERIXSON Maroon Staff is properly grateful to "Rufus" for her conscientious work.
9 IEROME FABER lack thinks he's doing us a "Faber" by telling us his chief interest is
photography. 9 THELMA FACTLY Since she's a member of Commercial Club, we'll let
Thelma "Thel" herself. 9 FORREST FARNSWORTI-I "Fuzzy" is quite the cosmopolite what
with being vice-president of EHS. Players, secretary and treasurer of the Rifle Club, and
an ardent follower of Indian dancing. 9 WILLIAM FEHRMAN Bill4Basketballvldaseball.
9 RAY FEUERHAKEN President of the High School Players, "Ding Don" devotes his spare
moments to dramatics and dance drumming. 9 IOHN FLAHERTY lack can be found
teeing off at any social gathering. 9 IEANNE FORSTER This Hleannie of the light brown
hair" for Tri-Y and sports has a flair. 9 MARIE FOSSER Marie chooses two unrelated
subjects, sports and science, as her hobbies. 9 HARRY FRITZ "Hans" Fritz, that fugitive
from a comic strip, goes in for athletics, especially baseball. 9 IOSEPH FUQUA loe's
membership in the "E" Club is due, no doubt, to his proficiency in golf. 9 MILDRED
GAEDE "Mitzy" is really an ideal Commercial Club member as her chief interest is typing.
9 CATHERINE GALLINA Tri-Y and band are "Katie's" first choice, with German Club and
G.A.A. close seconds. 9 ELMER GIESEKE 'lAs the twig is bent so the tree inclines," and
"Elm" goes for photography. Make of it what you will. 9 LAVERNE GIESEKE "Verne's"
chief interest is playing saxophone. His favorite activity is the band. Nice dovetailing, that,
9 ADELINE GIESKE Being a member of G.A.A., Home Economics, and Geography should
total up something, but we can't "Ad." 9 NORMAN GILLES Music seems to be Norm's
chief and only interest. 9 RAYMOND GILLILAN Apparently Ray's transfer from East Troy,
Wisconsin, didn't lessen his interest in sports, 9 IOHN GINNELL lohnny's interest is in
sports, too. 9 DOROTHEA GOLL lt's rather superfluous for "Dot" to say clubs are her chief
interest when she's a member of G.A.A., Girl's Science, Home Economics, Geography, and
German Clubs. 9 FORREST GOLLIHER Forrie's striking resemblance to Dick Powell is no
handicap to his being president of the Geography Club nor to his activities in Hi-Y and
Commercial Club. 9 RICHARD GOULD From Elgin to Elmira Heights-Then back to Elgin
High School thrills, But what we really want to know-fVVas there "Gould" in them thar
hills? 9 IULIA GRAF Kurtie's favorite club is G.A.A., her interests center about sports.
Strange? 9 VICTOR GRAFF Aviation is Vic's chief interest, both in and out of school,
9 DAVID GRAUPNER A big business man on the make, Dave gets a lot of practice by
being on the business end of the Maroon Staff, the senior class play, and the Fandango.
9 FLORENCE GREEN "Flossie" left University High School, Normal, Illinois, for the thrills
of our Girl's Science Club, German Club, and the exacting Maroon Staff. 9 MARY
GREENAWALT Despite all her activities Mary remains calm, studious, and cheerful.
9 NORMA GREVE If we were Norma, we shouldn't "Greve" at leaving E.H.S,, but her
participation in G.A.A., German Club, Home Economics, and Library Staff may be per-
suasive factors. 9 WILMER GRIFFITH Griff, of the deceiving cherubic countenance, gets
around-via the band, the Mirror, golf, and the Senior Science Club. 9 GEORGE
GRONEMAN Bud, late of Marengo High School, finds Elgin High well adapted to his inter-
est in agriculture and the F.F.A. 9 LOIS GRONEMAN Lois belongs to Home Economics,
G.A.A., and Commercial Club, and then, as a distinctive touch, collects dance programs as
a hobby. 9 GRACE GRONEMEIER Gracie-G.A.A.-Glenbard. 9 IOHN GROSS Pho-
tography may be lohnny's chief interest, but land the Maroon is duly grateful? he places it
secondary to his position as the Maroon's advertising manager. 9 DOROTHY GUDEMAN
"Dot" should make an ideal wife with her interest in music tempered by a good supply of
knowledge in home economics. 9 KENNETH GUGE "Ken," a true radio enthusiast, places
it above all school activities. 9 KATHRYN GURTNER "Kay" is the fifteenth letter in the
alphabet and also a member of our band and Commercial Club.

9 IOHN HAIDU Iohnny is a past master in art as his numerous posters testify. 9 MARGARET
HALLOCK "Mag," a violinist fair, The fair pertaining to her hair, is much too vestile to slight.
Sports and Tri-Y all delight. 9 CHARLOTTE HARTMAN "Char," another devotee of art, manages
to keep in contact with school affairs by her membership in the Home Economics Club and G.A.A.
9 CHARLES HARTZELL Setting styles for clothes and long hair, Charley was 39's noted actor as
the villian in Officer "BBB" 9 WANDA HAUT Ideal Weather, "Windy" and Haut. 9 BETTY
HAWLEY Betty's outstanding athletic ability doesn't prevent her from being active in G.A.A., E.H.S.
Players, and Maroon Staff. 9 NANCY HAZLETON Another noted artist, "Nance" received much
recognition for a drawing of Charley McCarthy. 9 AGNES HEBEISEN Although she is an ardent
German Club member, "Agie" takes no chances and limits her foreign correspondence to a native
of England. 9 PHYLLIS HEIMAN On the Mirror business staff, is this little red-haired lass. And
on the Senior Sales Committee she is always very witty. 9 BETTY HEINICKE lf bigger and better
cooks are made, Betty couldn't admit it, and after sampling her baking, neither would you.
9 ROBERT HENDRICKS If Fate is kind, we may see Bob social-science instructing, as he excelled
in this field at dear old E.H.S. He Worked on Maroon staff, too. 9 LAWRENCE HENKE "Larry"
is evidently one of these silent, speed-minded individuals. 9 IEAN HENLEY lean, the secretary of
German Club, finds an outlet for her dramatic ability in EHS. Players, for her social interests in
Tri-Y, and for her sports in tennis. 9 NORMA HENNING With the active interest of roller skating,
Norma naturally has taken a decided part in G.A.A. activities. 9 CATHERINE HERSCH Best citi-
zen Hersch somehow finds time for Student Council, Tri-Y presidency, senior class secretaryship,
Maroon business staff, four other clubs-and "Katy" still plays tennis! 9 FRANKLIN HITZEROTH
Frank, one of our air minded students, manages to tear himself from aviation long enough to help
on the back-stage crew for the class plays. 9 HOWARD HOAGLAND He listed radio as his
hobby. That's "Howie" know. 9 ELAINE HOKE "Hokey"-Home Economics-Hiking. 9 GIFFORD
HOLDEN Gif really takes his flying seriously what with his actual flying, his incessant construc-
tion of airplanes, and his commandership in the Aero Club, Incidentally he took many pictures for
this book. Did you notice the airplane view? 9 ROBERT HOLMES The president of the newly-
formed Pep Club does not let his new duties interfere with his interest in auto-mechanics.
9 ROBERT HOLZMAN His participation in sports led Bob to the presidency of the "E" Club.
9 BETTYIANE HORNBECK Her recent arrival from Calumet High School did not stop "Betsyjane"
from joining G.A.A., Home Economics Club, and Commercial Club. 9 VIVIAN HOWARD The sec-
retary of Commercial Club's chief interest is shorthand. Vivian came from Thomas lefferson High
in Council Bluffs, Iowa. 9 MERLE HOWENSTEIN "Sis's" school activities are many and varied:
orchestra, library staff, G.A.A., and Pep Club, 9 MILDRED HUBBARD Milly undoubtedly finds her
acquatic inclination gives her a better appreciation of G.A.A. 9 MARIE HUGH Now l'Hughie" can
write to her English correspondent without the welcome interference of G.A.A. and Home Economics.
9 FLORENCE IACOB "lill," despite her name, doesn't go in for quarter-pint hobbies-unless you
consider skating, swimming, and painting on the liquid side. 9 FLORA IACOBSON "lake" answers
her physical wants with sports and her cultural wants with music. 9 DONALD IAMES Don is one
of those silent workshop workers-or does he whistle while he works? 9 BARBARA IOHNSON She
may be the president of the Girls Science Club and vice-president of A Cappella, but she is more
noted for her "Barbed" sayings on the Mirror's feature page. 9 LINNEA IOHNSON "Naya" manages
to squeeze summer sports in between practices for the band. 9 GERALDINE IORDAN "Gerry" tem-
pers her avid interest in reading by participating in various sports. 9 MILDRED IOSSI Photogra-
phy makes the interesting hobby of "Millie," 9 ELOISE IOY A thing of beauty is a loy forever,
and so is Eloise. 9 DORA KAHL Kahling Dora Kahl-Nickname Suzy-Transferred from York High
School-Kahling Dora Kahl. 9 EDWARD KAHL Sam Mcfiahl-Science-Studius? 9 MARLENE
KAISER "Mar," without a trace of a Kaiser complex, admits her simple pleasure, E.H.S. Players,
library staff, and knitting. 9 WILLIAM KAPPEN "Bill" gets good practice in his chief interest, air
conditioning, in his caddying. He came from Dundee Community High School. 9 RALPH KASTNER
If this lad played baseball, we could say " 'Casey' at the bat." 9 SHIRLEY KELLEY "Skell" most
naturally does girls athletics for the Maroon, for her time is divided between G.A.A. and all sports,
9 THOMAS KENNELL Tommy, the "V" man of EHS., ably co-captained the football and track
teams of '39. 9 MURIEL KIRKPATRICK "Mur's" sense of humor may be moot, it may be non-
existant, but when she starts to sell Maroons, her prospects are nonresistant.
9 PHYLLIS KIRKPATRICK "Kirk," with the luck of the lrish and the canniness of the Scot,
corresponds with an English acquaintance. Rather a Great Britain complex, eh What?
9 DOROTHY KIRSCH Here we have one of those long-sought-after domestic girls who par-
ticipates extensively in home economics. 9 LEROY KLABUNDE "Klay's" highschool life
centers around Commercial Club, Glee Club, and Hi-Y. 9 LORRAINE KLABUNDE Music
for a hobby and home economics as a chief interest have made Lorraine's highschool days
active and interesting. 9 GEORGE KLEIN "Shorty''-Sports-Scarlet Shirts. 9 VIRGINIA
KNIGHT Golf club and gavel of G.A.A.-"Ginny" swings both with a practiced hand.
9 RICHARD KNODLE Scientist Dick uses any spare time left from cogitating over the "why"
of things in delighting his soul Cand others?l with music. 9 RICHARD KOCH Although
"Koch" has a domestic handle, his hobby is photography. 9 FRED KORTE With the intrig-
uing hobby of model airplane building, "Fritz" naturally was very active in E.H.S. Aero
Club. 9 NICKOLAUS KREA Radio and painting flowers don't exactly coincide for hobbies,
nevertheless they're Nick's choice. 9 ROBERT KROLL We salute this fellow who partici-
pated in the Future Farmers of America because to most of us F. F. means future farmers.
9 FRED KRUGER Fritz is a mechanically minded fellow who has made machine shop the
center of his activities. 9 BEATRICE LA BRASH lf l'Bea" be flat or "Bea" be sharp, we'll
know that it's just her interest in music. 9 EDWARD LAMBERT Ed has spare time only
for Commercial Club. 9 FLORENCE LAMPRECHT This fair maiden probably has her lamps
lit most of the time fWe don't mean her eyes, smartyj as her chief interest in reading.
9 MARIORIE LANDIS ''Peggy''-photographs-personality. 9 HELEN LANDWEHR "Dolly's"
chief interest in life is music and more music, even though she belongs to several clubs.
9 ALBERT LANGE Commercial and the lzaak Walton Clubs do double duty as Al's chief
interests and favorite activities. 9 HAROLD LANGE "Booty"-bounces-basketballs.
9 WILLIAM LANGE "Rub's" membership in lzaak Walton has probably helped him to be
more judicious in his hunting. 9 HENRY LESCHKE We find that "Hank" likes photography,
football, and he's on the Mirror staff. 9 RUTH LIEPITZ Nickname, "Rudy"-hobby, skating
-activities, Home Ec, Commercial Club, and G.A.A. 9 GRACE LINDBERG Grace, lacking
the daring of her namesake, is content to collect postcards as her hobby. 9 HELENE
LINDER She wrote the senior class song, she belongs to the German Club, she likes the
songs of cowboys, and she's called "Arkie" because she came from St. foe, Arkansas.
9 LAURIE LOCHNER Although Laurie is secretary-treasurer of the Rifle Club, his hobby is
motor boats. 9 VIOLET LOEK G.A.A. and sports vie for favor from Violet. 9 VIRGINIA
LOGAN Ginger-Glee Club-G.A.A. 9 BETTY LORANG This red headed bookworm
chews up all the latest literature. 9 IEAN LOVELETTE "Frenchie" is an appropriate name
for this "designing" woman from Aurora. 9 ROBERT LUDWIG "Robin," vice-president of
M.A.C., singles out tennis and basketball as his favorite sports. 9 DOROTHY LUND When
ice-skating is out of season, "Dot" spends her spare time reading. 9 MARY LUTZ "Mary
Mar" won't read anything but "big thick books" Will 'flies Miserables" in Braille suffice?
9 LOIS IEAN MANN lt's comforting to have a Mann around to shoulder the responsibility
as Lois's work for the Mirror business staff and the junior class play can testify. 9 RUS-
SELL MASI lf odd nicknames are determining factors, "Moxie" has an excellent future in
the field of his chief interest-sports. 9 WALTER MATTOCKS Walt, a future Edison, may-
be, spends his spare time in his home workshop performing chemical experiments, building
models, and manufacturing various articles. 9 RAY MCCHESNEY This "Wizard of Oz"
finds mechanics act as a "Baum" to everyday annoyances. 9 LILA MCCORMICK Lila, the
girl with eyes and hair the same enchanting shade, seems to run to the "S's" for her avoca-
tions-sports, scouting, Senior Sales Committee. 9 LEO MCDONALD "Mac" is another of

MCDONOUGH Taking pictures in lune or with Iune or by lune is permissible-if a Kodak
is used. KNO plug intendedj. 9 IOHN McLEAN "Mac," a past master in the art of avoiding

9 CONSTANCE METZGER "Connie" - Commercial Club - Conscientious. 9 BETTY
MICKLEWRIGHT "Mick" is in many activities, but the most important are debate, music,
and sports. 9 GEORGE MILLER Some people eat to live and some people live to eat.
George, the gourmet, lives only to eat. 9 ROLAND MILLER Whether on the sidelines or on
the playing field, "Roly's" interest in sports never lags. 9 ROBERT MINEHART Photog-
raphy is the ruling force in the life of this fair laddie. He cares nought for frills or feminine
wiles, for "Mine-hart belongs to daddy." 9 DONALD MOCKLER Don, by virtue of voice,
a singer, sports-baseball-as a hobby. 9 WESLEY MONDY Greeley said, "Go Wes,
young man, go Wes"-Greeley lisped. And "Wes" sang as he went. 9 LOIS MONROE
"Snooks''-Sports-Seventeen. 9 DARRELL MONTEITH You'll just have to be satisfied with
the fact that Darrell was on the Senior Sales Committee and in Commercial Club. He
didn't list any "Moe" 9 MARY MORLEY Mirror staff, Commercial Club, and G.A.A., with
collecting foreign dolls as a hobby, keep Mary busy. 9 PHYLLIS MORTON Even after
four years she can't get her "Phil" of music or G.A.A. 9 HOWARD MOULTON "Howie"
spends all his spare time dealing in stamps. 9 MARGARET MUETTERTIES "Margie" may
conceal her executive ability beneath a smooth blonde exterior, but G.A.A. and Tri-Y can
vouch for its presence. 9 GLENN MUHR This reserved individual acknowledges woodshop
as his hobby. 9 CAROL MUNTZ Music, dramatics, sports-but mostly sports for Carol.
9 AUDREY MYHRE Maybe we're Wrong, but from the little information we gleaned, we'd
say Audrey was interested in G.A.A. and Commercial Club. 9 PHYLLIS NELSON For cen-
turies dancing has been the favorite pastime of young ladies, and "Phyl" is no exception.
9 RUTH NESLER If you can bear our being allegorical, we'll say that to us "Ruthie" is
energy personified-sports being her chief interest. 9 AGNES NIMMRICK Agnes managed
to find time to participate in Commercial Club and Maroon Staff even if she had to slight
her chief interest, music, to do so. 9 ROBERT NITZ Nickname, Bob-Hobby, Golf-Interest,
Commercial Club. 9 FRANCES NORD Drama and music have a magnetic attraction for
this Nord pole, and Frannie does right well in both. 9 NAT NORTON Nat's responsibility
as treasurer of E.H.S. Players and sports editor of the Mirror truly earn him the name of
"Prof" And do you remember him in the senior play? 9 DOROTHY NUTTING Wouldn't
this vice-president of German Club be surprised if she opened her Maroon and found
Nutting? But really, she's very active in music and is in Tri-Y, E.H.S. Players, and sports.
9 ROBERT ORTON Bob turns to aviation when the combined duties of the Student Coun-
cil, Publications Board, E.H.S. Players and presidency in the Senior Hi-Y become too much
for him. 9 HOWARD OSTDICK Howard has been a member of the boys glee clubs for all
four years, so naturally his chief interest would be music. 9 MARION OTTE "Shorty" goes
in for the Home Economics Club and hiking. 9 BESSIE PACHTER "Betsy" likes G.A.A.,
Commercial Club and bicycling. 9 HAROLD PAULSEN "Bud" is his nickname-Hunting is
his forte-He came from Minneapolis-And so ends our report. 9 MARVIN PETERSDORF
We'll tell you all we know. Nicknamee"Pete"-Active in football-The End. 9 ROBERT
PETERSON Diesel kill you, but for posterity's sake we must record that Pete's passion is
engines, motor cars, trucks, and fto keep in touch with the masses? automobiles. 9 IANE
PHILPOTT Perhaps Iane's interest in German Club aided her foreign correspondence.
9 LEONARD PIAZZA "Rhythm" tries his hand at everything-athletics, drawing, reading,
and music. 9 LUCILLE PIERCE Sis-Skating-Saucy. 9 DONNA PRIEGNITZ The nurse
in "Doc" is softened by her interest in music. 9 ARLAND RANDALL "Arly" is a potential
Beethoven or Bach. Or would be if he didn't like his music hot. 9 IAMES RAUE His nick-
name is "Iim", his hobby is sports, basketball, baseball, and "E" Club his fortes.
9 ROBERT REED "Robin" fiddles, and he came from Reedley, California. 9 EDWARD REIN
Like many statesmen Ed maintains that his frontier is the "Rein" Now, now, Ed, let's keep
politics out of this, you're better in sports. 9 IACK REUTER On the "Slim" chance that
you're interested, we record that "Slim's" chief interest is work. 9 IOSEPHINE RIDGLEY
"lo," no "e," please, relaxes after rehearsing in E.H.S. by listening to a real symphonic
orchestra. 9 CARROLL RILEY Consistently enough, "Rawhide's" main interest is lndian
lore. 9 DON RINNE We like the sound of Don's nickname-"Skinny" Rinne-and he likes
autos, which makes us even.
Hall duty student, senior Crafts,
tends strictly to business.
Senior swing artists, Randall and
Reed, collaborate on a bit of "jive."
9 IACK RIPPBERGER "Rip" is active in basketball and interested in machines. 9 LOIS ROBBINS
"Loire" exemplifies her interest in G.A.A. by her participation in sports. 9 MIRIAM ROBERTS This
secretive miss allows us only two facts to work on: G.A.A. and Home Economics. 9 CONNIE MAY
ROBINSON She's in Home Ec and G.A.A. and is interested in sports and hiking. 9 LEWIS
ROBINSON "Robinberry," a decidedly unedible fruit but a very active student, has favored the
junior and senior class plays, I-li-Y, A Cappella, and band with his presence. 9 DOUGLAS ROGERS
Doug, surnamed Rogers, at boating is a whizz. Doug, surnamed Rogers, is an lzaak Walton member.
9 ROBERT ROGERS No twenty-fifth century Buck Rogers has more duties than our "Buck" with his
captaincy of the basketball team, presidency of Student Council and of I-li-Y. 9 PAUL ROGERS
His debating is of great reknown-His praises to the sky we sound. However may we please in-
quire why on his name he tacks "Esquire," 9 WALTER ROHRER lt may give you a Rohrer, but
Walt finds nothing laughable in hunting, fishing, and badminton. 9 GORDON ROVELSTAD Gordie,
president of the junior class and vice-president of the senior class, is so active in the Mirror, A Cap-
pella, E.H.S. Players, class plays, Hi-Y, and orchestra that it's hard to single out one particular ac-
tivity to spotlight. 9 MARY ROVELSTAD lf this has to be in equestrian terms, "Mare" is a filly
that would carry our money any time with her success in nine activities. 9 IEANETTE ROWE Net-
tie forsook her music long enough to help out the business committees of the class plays. 9 RALPH
ROWE President of Math Club is this lad called He likes photography and scouting. That's
all he had to say. 9 VIOLET SANDBERG "Sandys" enjoyment of music is second to no other inter-
est. 9 ROBERT SAUER "Wimpy's" math interest leads to astronomy, and his football activities to
E Club, but what leads to his work on the Mirror? 9 BEATRICE SCAMEHORN Tuffy may be her
wild and woolly kitten, but we don't agree that he's quite ferocious enough for this Roselle lass to
call herself a "Beaty." 9 ANGELINE SCARLATA "Angie" has our "stamp" of approval on her col-
lecting hobby. 9 MARY SCHALLER Mary likes travel, but so far her duties in G.A.A., Home Eco-
nomics, and Commercial Club have kept her comparatively busy. 9 MARGARET SCHAUER "Dolly's"
real interest may be music, but she puts enough spirit into her cheer leading to mislead anyone.
9 NANCY SCHELLENBERGER "Nan's" petite blondness belies her capacity for such prosaic work as
secretary of Home Economics. 9 PAUL SCHICKLER German Club and lzaak Walton both have
this athlete for their president. 9 ALICE SCHMIDT SmittyHSports-Snapshots. 9 BETTY SCHMITZ
"Frenchie" takes to dance, she likes winter sports, and she belongs to G.A.A., Home EC, and
Commercial Club. 9 LOTTY SCHMOKEL "Smokie" distributes her interests between the Mirror
Staff and outdoor sports. 9 HARRIS SCHNATHORST lt's rather self evident that this clarinet player
and member of A Cappella would find music his favorite activity. 9 ROBERT SCHNEFF Bob-
Baseball-Boys Science Club. 9 LUCILLE SCHRAMM Lucille values sports and G.A.A. as her
favorite school activities. 9 EDNA SCHULT "Eddie" by her own admission collects both songs and
elephants. Nice work if you can stand it. She came from Lincoln, Nebraska. 9 MILDRED SCHULTZ
Millie, Maroon Staff, and G.A.A., Art and Commercial Club-she calls it a day. 9 ROBERT SCHULTZ
Although Bob's chief interest is radio, he no doubt owes his membership in the "E" Club to his work
in football. 9 AUDREY SCHULZ An avid reader, a tireless -worker, an embryonic scientist-all these
characteristics make Audrey invaluable to the Maroon Staff and the Girls Science Club. 9 WILLIAM
SECHRIST Willie is no sly recluse, in many clubs he is a member.'He was an officer of one, which
one, he can't remember. 9 RUTH SEEGERT Ruthie enjoys both ice-skating and dancing. 9 ROBERT
SEILER Bob is quite the sports fan with interest in both baseball and basketball and membership in
M.A.C. and "E" Club. 9 RUSS SHALES Russ finds the activities of Commercial Club and the tennis
team well worth participating in. 9 VIRGINIA SHALES Ginger-G.A.A.--Glee Clubs. 9 MAR-
GARET SHAMBERGER "Marg" is a fiend for punishment. Not only is she secretary of E.H.S. Play-
ers, and associate editor of the Mirror, but she is also active in orchestra, glee club, and Tri-Y.
9 ERNEST SHOLES Sports seem to be of paramount interest to "Ernie" 9 DORIS SMITH French
Club, Hostess Club, Tri-Y, and G.A.A. are the clubs "Dorie" favors. 9 HAROLD SMITH Harry de-
cided not to graduate this year. 9 IOSEPH SMITH loe believes "The sport is the thing" and fol-
lows up his belief by belonging to "E" Club, Pep Club, and M.A.C. 9 RUSSELL SMITH, IR. Russ,
an ex-Missourian, dropped his scepticism long enough to join Commercial Club and become vice-
president of the lzaak Walton League.

The Prayer of cr Senior
By HoWARD voss
Oh patron saint of students, hear!
That seniors who shall pass this way
May know what l have known,
And something more,
Of all the joys and futile sorrows
Of all the hope of rich tomorrows
Cf all the loyalties to school's traditions
And all ideals and young ambitions.
And for myself l pray
That l may face the future with an open mindg
That someday l perhaps may find
Some part of what l have been striving for.
For this l pray and nothing more.

Amid the thud of jarring
tackles, smashing blocks, end
runs, and waving banners, the
l938 football season took its
bow at Elgin High School.
A majority of our Maroon
heavy squad consisted of inex-
perienced material, however,
under the expert guidance of
Coach Mike Farroh assisted by
Charles Morrill, surprising pow-
er was exhibited, and hope was
strengthened by two successive
victories over Freeport and
West Aurora. This hope was
shattered, though, by a conferf
ence champion East Aurora
team, and then by two heart-
breakers with Rockford and La-
Salle-Peru. The gloom was
finally pierced by a smashing
victory over loliet to wind up
the loop season.
The final tallies showed our
heavies tied with West Aurora
for fourth place, presenting an
even .500 rating. Although the
team did not complete a highly
successful season, it never fail-
ed to provide the home crowd,
which was the greatest in
Elgin's history, with a thrilling
exhibition of football skill.

The presenting of awards by Mr. Frank Myers, the coach,
culminated a successful sports season at Abbott. The basketball
teams made an exceptionally good showing, winning seven
games out of eight. This year, instead of heavies and lights,
there were first and second teams. Byford Cavitt was captain.
The fall football season was satisfying, and Abbott was
proud of their boys' showing in the freshman-sophomore team.
The frosh-soph teams of both Central and Abbott, combined
into first, second, and third strong teams, made two wins, two
ties, and one loss. The captain was Earl Angle.
During March the corridors rang with cheering on several
eighth-period occasions when aspiring boxers afforded lively
amusement for enthusiastic audiences. Bill Pleasant, Lawrence

Swish! the sinking of the first bucket,
and king basketball once again put in
his appearance. Mike Farroh's fight-
ing five, no sooner underway, began
to show their smoke, winning verdicts
over Proviso and Woodstock. The boys
lost to a very fine Cicero team and
showed themselves fit when the con-
ference season began. Our improved
cagers soundly whipped DeKalb to
dedicate the new gym.
Things went very smoothly until our
bucketeers encountered the powerful
Rabs. They reversed the situation
against Freeport, only to fall victims
of the Steelmen of loliet.
When the second part of the schedule
had got underway, our boys caught
their second breath and proceeded to
whip the tar out of the opposition, al-
though a few narrow escapes were en-
countered with LaSalle-Peru and Rock-

can be congratulated for doing so well
in the gruelling campaign, tying Rock-
ford for the Conference Championship.

Practice makes perfect
Our pony cagers opened the l938-39
basketball season with only two letter-
rnen returning. However, they had
some fine prospects to patch up va-
cancies in the lineup and lohn Krafft as
coach. The boys were very quick to
fall into a winning stride, copping de-
cisions in all of their pre-conference
The opening of the Big Seven Con-
ference still found them in winning forrn.
This, however, was short-lived when
they met the speedy Rablets. This sud-
den reversal of form, unfortunately, did
not immediately leave our lads. After
dropping the next two decisions, local
lights then proceeded to take matters
in greater earnestness, dealing punish-
ment alike to all opposition with the ex-
ception of Freeport and loliet.
The closing of the season found our
lights located in fourth place with a .500
rating. However, because of the in-
eligibility of one of the lightweight
cagers, the lights had to forfeit all but
one of their games, and final revised
standings found them in sixth place.

Abbott's trash-soph basketball team waded
through a trying season with seven wins and but
one loss, presenting a very tine record tor the
1938-39 season. Bylord Cavitt was captain of the
trosh-soph team, the light and heavyweight sys-
tem having been abolished last year.
High scorer tor the season was Charles Ader-
man, with 41 points to his credit. Howard Svend-
son was second, with 26 points.
Perhaps the most exciting home game was
played with the Central trosh-soph team. A clinch-
ing tield goal in the last few seconds of play
gave Abbott the victory.

From the very first day of the new term to the last, the di-
rectors of girls sports have a continuous program of timely
sports. Miss Wilda Logan, assisted by Miss Helen Kettering,
especially in captainball and volleyball, is in charge of the
girl athletes at Central, and Miss Wilda I-loopengardner
guides the Abbott girls.
A wide variety of sports is offered in order to attract the
interest of more girls. For the team girls baseball, hockey and
basketball are offered, and some of the individual sports are
ping pong and badminton. Under skillful supervision the
girls gain both physical education and good sportsmanship.

At the end of each year a local award is given by the G.A.A.
to those girls who have earned a required number of points.
At the end of the fourth year, if the girls have two thousand
points and have observed health rules, they are entitled to the
State Award, or emblem, which is given through the high-
school athletic association by the Illinois League of High
School Girls Athletic Associations.
This year fifteen girls have achieved this award. They are

ln the fall when Abbott and Central activities in girls sports
get underway, any late afternoon groups of girl athletes can
be seen scrambling out of the building in their mad rush to
get to the field.
Here the cry of ground-sticks can be heard as an exciting
game of hockey begins. The clashing of sticks can be heard
as the teams advance down the field, and then cheers are
sounded as one of the teams makes a goal!
In another part of the field girls are trying their skill at
hitting the bull's-eye in archery practice. With bow strings

after all arrows have been released, each girl runs to count

When the cold, blustery winds blow, we again see our group ot I
athletic girls, but this time they are in the well-equipped gymnasiums
at Abbott and Central. A thrilling and exciting tournament ot volley-
ball goes on between the freshmen and sophomores at one end ot the
gym, while at the other end the upper classmen are playing the well
known and probably most popular indoor sport, basketball. Tourna-
ments are played throughout the year, most ot them by teams formed
in gym classes.
As the second month of the season draws to a close, the tourneys
are finished, and the girls practice consistently on basket shooting tor
the Telegraphic Basket Shooting contest which is held in March. This
is a state contest and the schools with the highest scores are given
pennants tor their merits. This year the Elgin girls took third place
in their division.

improved, various tourneys are played in which all classifications
of girls may enter. During the 1938 Christmas holidays a co-edu-
cational tournament Was held in which the alumni together with
highschool students competed. Another high light in this sport

has a large following. Every day that the ice
is reported safe finds many girls taking grace-

One of the high spots in the season was the
girls club ice carnival which is becoming an
annual event. Every highschool girl was in-
vited, and all the skaters and wouldebe-skaters
turned out. No prizes are awarded in the com-
petition, but it was all in fun and therefore
many more girls participated. Besides skating,
there were fireworks and refreshments are

Along With the major sports that have been pictured, Abbott
and Central offer a great variety of minor enjoyable activities.
ln the spring of the year when the basketball season is over
and it is still a bit chilly to open the field house, the girls spend
their leisure time in the gym becoming acquainted with these
miscellaneous sports. These are also offered for the girl who does
not prefer the more strenuous major sports.
Some of the activities offered are deck tennis, shuffle board,
bowling, dart throwing, and loop tennis. With such a variety
most girls are able to find some thing they enjoy. Some of these
are coeducational, and many nights one may find boys and
girls dancing or enjoying a brisk game of deck-tennis.

Board, which approves the budgets and expenditures of the newspaper, the
Mirror, and the yearbook, the Maroon, and directs the policies of these publi-
cations. The board is made up of faculty advisers, editors and business man-
agers of the publications, a senior representative, and delegates from Abbott,
Principal Merrill R. Stephan is the president, Robert Orton vice president, Miss
Mary Peters secretary, and Walter Wilson treasurer.
Both publications are affiliated with two national press associations: the

The objectives of debate and speech Work are to teach the student to think
logically, to organize material effectively, and to interpret other's thoughts and
emotions to an audience.
This year Elgin has had another successful term. Blazing through at the
McCahill speech tournament at Drake University, Elgin won it for the second
year, the only school ever to achieve this honor. At the Coe College tourna-
ment at Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Elgin received superior rating, While at the
Wheaton tournament the squad tied for third place. Combining all events
Elgin placed second in the Northern lllinois District of the National Forensic
League tournament held in this city for the first time.
Not only in' debate Work did Elgin have a successful year but also in indi-
vidual events. At the sub-district contest held here, the contestants all qualified
for the district tournament at DeKalb. There Elgin and Freeport qualified for
the state finals in debate held at the University of Illinois. ln individual events
Paul Rogers qualified in original oratory, Ruth Helm in extemporaneous speak-
ing, and Cheryle Feld in dramatic reading.
Some of those who have done exceptionally fine Work in individual events
are Paul Rogers, who qualified for the National contest to be held at Beverly
l"0 GHJ Con
Hills, California, lune 19-23, and Barbara lohnson in original oratory, Mary
Helen lohnson and Lois Grote in oratorical declamation, Lee Gabby and Billy
Allerton in humorous reading, lane Wilson and Cheryle Feld in dramatic
reading, and Helen Cohen and Ruth Helm in extemporaneous speaking.
The Central squad is a member of the National Forensic League. The of-
ficers for the year Were Paul Rogers, president, Barbara lohnson, viceopresi-
dent, and Mary Helen lohnson, secretary. This organization, directed by the
two coaches, Roscoe S. Cartwright and Maurice Graff, sponsored Charles
Eagle Plume in three programs. This entertainer fascinated his audiences with
his vivid descriptions, his authentic lndian costumes, and his demonstration
of his songs and dances.

Queen is crowned.
9 School had been in session on1y a short time when, on Qce
tober 27, 1938, the Abbott band presented its annua1 minstre1
show. When the curtain arose, the stage presented the typica1
backstage of an opera house. The theme Was "1-1o11ywood
Bound." B1ack-faced men, 1ove1y maidens, the dress-suited
interlocutor, Char1es Wagner, singing, dancing, instrumenta1
music, and p1enty of comedy made this seventh annual minstre1
a success. Laughs Were furnished by the six end-men: Doug1as
Rogers, Tom Mau1e, Iohn Di11on, Robert Spinner, Russe11
Schneider, Richard Peterson, and the night watchman, Fred
Se11. The minstre1, directed by Mr, 1ohn F. F1etcher, was a
high-1ight ot the year.
9 Against a background ot co1orfu1 pennants surmounted by
eag1es, Bernice Mattke was crowned Queen ot the May at Ab-
bott's Sixth Annual Spring Festiva1 on May 12, 1938. The
Queen and her attendants, Audrey Ber1in, Shir1ey Nitz, Barbara
Geister, and lean Ne1son, were previous1y chosen by a stue
dent vote. The setting for the festival was American in theme,
and the co1or scheme was dominated by gay spring co1ors.
Music during the program and tor the processiona1 and re-
cessiona1 Was provided by the Abbott concert orchestra, direct-
ed by Miss Marion Lattey. The G1ee C1ub sang severa1 num-

Central band plays their fall concert.
Besides occupying a prominent place in the school activities, the First Band,
under the direction of U. K. Reese, has extended its influence into city affairs
by furnishing music for civic enterprises and presenting public concerts. ln one
concert alumni band members were featured, in another the solos and ensem-
bles prepared for the state contest, in which the band participates each year,
The band has been undefeated in district contest for ten years, has won first
in state contest for three years, and has won second in National contest for
two years. Because of this, and because the band plays at one out-of-town
football game each year, it is very well known. By supplying the necessary
color and pep, the band adds to the spirit of not only our football games
and pep meetings, but also our basketball games.
The First Band is open to more advanced musicians who have had sufficient
experience and training to deserve their appointment. Practice is held four
times a week in the auditorium and one-half credit is given for participation.
Special noon rehearsals and sectional practices are held to further the band's
The second band is in reality serving an apprenticeship in music, for here
they learn the rudiments which enable them to enter the more advanced first

The Abbott Band, under the direction of lohn F. Fletcher, is
composed of ninety players who began the term by presenting
an early fall concert for the public. A very colorful and suc-
cessful annual minstrel show Was presented in October.
This organization participated in the contest at East Aurora,

A modern three-act comedy entitled
"Mother Carey's Chickens," based on
the book of the same name Written by
Kate Douglas Wiggin, Was presented
as the junior class play on May 27, l938.
The story is built around Mrs. Carey's
large New England family and the per-
plexing problems that confront them.
Their biggest problem concerns a cer-
tain Will, leaving the house that Mrs.
Carey and her brood occupy to the for-
mer oWner's grandson, Tom Hamilton.
But Tom falls in love with Nancy, one
of Mrs. Carey's daughters, and all ends
Well. The bits of comedy are added by
the Carey's neighbors, who include Mr.
Poppin and little Lallie loy.
Because of the skilfull direction of
Miss Marge Biersach, the excellent tal-
ent of thehcast, and the ingenious abili-
ty of the committees, the play became
one of the high-lights of the junior year.

group has been particularly interested
this year in the presentation of original
plays. Most of these plays have been

als. "My Cousin from Sweden" and
"Peanuts," directed by Miss Engel-
brecht, were two of these interesting
programs. "Breakfast at Eight," direct-
ed by Miss Iocelyn, was presented by
the Mask and Bauble in the Three One-
Acts given March l7. Every spring this
club gives one of the three plays.
Other programs were composed of
group pantornimes and impromptu pan-
tomimes which illustrated the move-
ments of the head and body. Mary

question. Many new cheers were used
this year besides the card stunts. These
card stunts are new and difficult. Each
person in the section has a card which
forms a letter when held up with the
rest of the group.
The Pep Club has been very success-
ful in its first year, and its members are
the envy of the rest of the school. Spe-

The purpose of the EHS Aero Club, sponsored by
l. N. Vonckx, is to study aviation by the building and
flying of model airplanes. The boys vie with one an-
other too. Each tries to build a better model than does
any other member. Every noon the club has flying
time when the members fly their models in contests for
endurance. The members are promoted by the length
of time their models fly and by examinations.
The most important program this year was an air-
plane clinic, to which the members brought their
models. The models were criticized and suggestions
made on how to improve them. At other programs re-
ports were made on new developments in flying and
new safety devices. This year the Commander was
