they made sacrifices that We might have
the opportunities which only an expanding
program can give. While planning a more
comprehensive curriculum, they realized
that a school must otter adequate training
in academic, vocational, and social activi-
ties. Consequently, they made provision tor
enlarging all ot these fields.
For their tarsightedness in providing the
facilities and personnel that would insure a

This school year marked several new and im-
portant advances in the curriculum of Elgin High
School. There was a very definite development of
an orientation course in the industrial arts depart-
ment, a Pan-American unit introduced into the
American history course, and a year in Spanish
added to our foreign languages. Visual Education,
also, made a step forward in the progress ol

"The best claw of Elgin High School!" announced senior class adviser, E. C.
The future class of 1941, numbering two hundred and ninety-five students, entered
the doors of E. H. S. in 1937 and soon took active part in athletics, debate, and music,
and on the school publications. Marilee Born, Courtney Krich, Dorothy Radke, and
Howard Wilbern represented the freshmen on the Student Council.
As our Alma Mater expanded, our class expanded, toog seventy-five mid-year stu
dents entered from Abbott School. Ours was the first sophomore class to organize.
Milford Rein was chosen president, Dick Dorsey, vice-president, and Mary Lynn
Miller, secretary. Student Council members were Tom Bonnike, Marilee Born, Court-
ney Krich, and Mary Lynn Miller.
Reinforced by one hundred and ten Abbottarians, the juniors, in their navy blue
and gold sweaters, accepted new responsibilities, The class was led by Gordon
Banks, president, Howard Meadows, vice-president, and Melba Perry, secretary. Mil-
ford Rein served as vice-president on the Student Council. The thespian production,
"Mystery at Greenfingersf' was presented in April. The lunior-Senior Prom brought
to a close the activities of our third happy year at high school.
ln our last, but most enjoyable year, the officers were: Bob Connell, president, lames
Butler, vice-president, Virginia Garber, secretaryg and Mr. Waggoner, adviser. As evi-
dence of their fine school spirit, every member co-operated in shattering all records
for class play attendance when the dramatics hit, "Y ou Can't Take lt With You," was
staged. Later in the fall on College Day, many of the seniors had helpful conferences
with representatives from the different colleges.
Gordon Banks headed the Student Council, and Betty Poole was treasurer. As our
high school days came to a close, committees for the special senior activities were
named. Class day, the class supper, baccalaureate, the prom, and commencement
ended activities in Elgin High School for the four hundred thirty-five students grad-
uating in the largest class in the history of the school.

"Hope springs eternal in the human breast," and the opening of the l94U-4l
school year brought with it high hopes for a successful varsity football season.
For the first game of the season, a heavy Glenbard squad invaded Elgin,
but the Maroons, led by co-captains Gordon Banks and George Coleman,
unleashed a strong running attack to crush the enemy.
Next, Elgin played host to Maine Township High and defeated its team
by a large score.
Elgin's hopes for the first Big Eight Varsity Championship were handed
an early setback when the Maroons lost a heartbreaker to Ioliet. lt was in
this game that ends l-larry Richardson and Leonard Rebenstorf were injured.
This further dashed Elgin's title hopes.
Against West Aurora, Rein and Company struck fast and furiously to take
an early lead, but late in the game, West Aurora's Blackhawks pushed over
for the winning touchdown.
Traveling to LaSalle-Peru, the Maronons expected to lose by a wide margin.

At home again, they played West Rockford. This
game marked the return of Gordon Banks, and al-
though Banks had not fully recovered from an in-
jury received at LaSalle-Peru, he went into the game
and threw a 45-yard pass into the arms ot Milt Rein,
who raced the remaining distance to the goal tor
what proved to be the winning score.
Elgin closed the football season by traveling to
East Rockford and tying the lighting Rabs.

The year 1940 saw Elgin represented
by a Freshman-Sophomore football
team for the first time, as the Big Eight
Conference, formerly the Big Seven,
abolished Lightweight squads and sub-
stituted Freshman-Sophomore teams.
lohn Krafft, former lightweight men-
tor, coached the Prosh-Sophs to a
three-way tie with LaSalle-Peru and
West Rockford for the conference
ln the season opener, the Frosh-
Sophs justified pre-season hopes when
they played Glenbard. Although they
failed to score, they played a strong
defensive game and held the more ex-
perienced Glenbard team to a scoreless
tie. ln the next game with Maine they
showed a marked improvement by
holding their opponents scoreless.
These two games showed that the
Frosh-Sophs had great possibilities,
which raised high hopes that a Krafft-
coached football team would win its
third consecutive conference cham-
Elgin opened the Big Eight campaign
in the game against loliet, and started
on the way to the conference title. The
team held the opposition scoreless
while running wild themselves to
swamp the Steelmen by a large margin.
The following week West Aurora in-

vaded Maroon Field, but although the Maroonettes played a fine defensive
game, fumbles kept them from scoring.
ln the next game Elgin's championship hopes were handed a setback when
the favored Maroons bowed to a fighting team of lncas, Returning to Maroon
Eield, the Maroonettes bounced back into the conference when they unleashed
a swift attack and Whipped the East Aurora Kittens by a substantial score.
Next the Maroonettes traveled to Ereeportg and While they scored only one
touchdown, it Was all that was needed to turn back the determined Pretzels.
Eighting to stay in the championship race, Elgin earned a victory over a
strong West Rockford team.
The Erosh-Sophs rang down the curtain on a most successful season by
traveling to Rockford and beating East Rockford by a large score, to clinch a
share of the Big Eight Championship.

The E. H. S. basketball team won another
championship, but this time they had to share
the honor with East Rockford and Ioliet. Al-
though this was the first year that Krafft coach-
ed the major team, it was his third champion-
ship in four years.
After losing the season opener to West Madi-
son, Wisconsin, the team won nine out of the
next twelve games, eight of these in the con-
ference. The only conference defeats came from
LaSalle-Peru and loliet. They beat loliet in their
first encounter. The team also lost to Decatur
but defeated the strong Proviso team.
Probably the main reason the team won the
championship was through the scoring ability
of Paul Chapman. He not only set a new E. H. S.
scoring record but also Won the "Big Eighti'
scoring crown by tying the all-time conference
record of l40 points in ten games.

ment at Peoria, where he finished llth.
Elgin's track team, directed by Arthur Roggen and Charles Morrill, Won
three of the four dual meets, losing to Rockford, the conference champion
team, 591A to 53121. The track results for l940 were as follows:

second, Morton, third, York, fourth, and La Grange, fifth.
jack Bryson with 48 points can be rated as one of the greatest dash men
in the history of Elgin High School. lf he had not been injured during the
Rockford meet, he undoubtedly would have set new records in the later track
meets. Other outstanding men were Paul Chapman and Milford Rein with
55 and 53 points respectively.
"Milt" Rein, pole vault, broad jump, and relay man, returned as captain
of the l94l team. Other lettermen included Paul Chapman, broad and high
jumps, Bill Ziegler, broad jump, dashes, and relay, Charles Schroeder, relay
and half mile dash, Cliff Schroeder, dashes, and Mike Sullivan, holder of
the county record for low hurdles.
A ten-meet schedule was planned for l94l, and Mr. Roggen and Mr. Morrill
predict a successful season.
A Down the Stretch
From the first day of the school year
to the last, auvaried and Well-planned
program of extra-curricular activities
unfolds under the excellent leadership
of Miss Wilda Logan, director of girls'
athletics, and Miss Helen Kettering. The
season is officially opened with a mad
dash from the high school building to
Maroon Field, Where the girls can be
seen Warming up for a swift and ex-
citing gaine of hockey. The cry of
"ground-sticks" is heard, and the game
As the sports program continues, a
Winter season of basketball is in order.
The inter-class tournament and the tele-
graphic shooting contest are annual
events that all the girls look forward to.
Whenever "Old Man Winter" smiles on
Elgin, the girls take advantage of the
Weather and turn out for ice skating
at Lord's Park and tobogganing at the
Elgin Country Club. Many are the spills
and thrills, but E. H. S. girls can take it.
Other sports offered during the Winter
season include volleyball, table tennis,
captain ball, shuffle board, and bad-
minton. On Friday afternoons table
tennis and badminton are enjoyed co-
educationally, the venture proving to
be a decided success, judging from the
large number of boys and girls Who
take advantage of this ideal recreation.

ln the tall when the new term begins,
girls may be seen dashing to their
lockers in the girls' gym, scrambling
into their play clothes, and scurrying
down to the gym tloor for team games.
One hears the blast of the whistle as
Miss Logan assembles the girls tor the
season's opening game ot basketball.
Soon anxious shouts of "Shootl Shoot!"
are heard as someone crouches under
the basket with the ballg and the blood-
tingling game is on.
On the other side of the gym a game
ot volleyball is underway. As the girls
become more and more excited and
eager to slap the ball over the net, they
literally dive over each other to reach
the ball first, and then with a show of
good sportsmanship, characteristic ot
our high school girls, they straighten
out their teams and continue with this
Not only may the girls participate in
team sports, but they may also enter
individu.al sports. "Keep your eye on
the birdie" is a popular phrase ot
badminton players as girls challenge
one another to play the game. Co-ordi-
nation ot mind, eye, and arm is a neces--
sary quality, soon developed by good
badminton players. Whether beginners
or experts, girls always enjoy this
game. The "Modern Miss" may also
try her hand at table tennis, tor this,
too, has an important place in girls'
sports. The continuous program in-
cludes other activities such as acrobat-
ics, shuttle-board, archery, and hockey.
ln tact, there is something to do in the
girls' gym tor every girl. The latch-
string is out, so come one, come all!

When school re-opens in the fall and the girls are getting back into the
swing of sports, the fieldhouse at Maroon Field is officially opened by Miss
Logan. Again it becomes the center of sports activities, its walls echoing
with the cheerful chatter of the girls as they rest after a few hours of play,
while outside, the more energetic carry on with cries of 'Strike three! You're
out!" and "Batter up." These informal and friendly gatherings, whether out
in the field or in the cozy room of the fieldhouse, allow the girls to exchange
their ideas on many subjects. A few of' the more domestic seniors often fix
up a snack for the group in the well-equipped kitchen.
With the coming of spring, the girls once again troop down to Maroon Field,
where fun for everyone awaits, in the form of archery for junior and senior
girls, and the ever popular baseball and hockey for everyone. Here again
sportsmanship and friendly co-operation prevail.

and supper. November brought a thrill to two of the E. l-l. S. orchestra mem-
bers, who, along with the best players from all the state high school orchestras,
were selected to participate in the All-State Orchestra Concert held at Urbana,
lllinois. The orchestra played at the Musicians Club and presented a formal
concert at the school in December.
A trip to Chicago to hear the Chicago Symphony Orchestra was the main
event of Ianuary, this was followed in February with participation in the
student night program held by the Musicians Club. March brought forth an
evening concert, a concert for the student body, and the district contest for
orchestra soloists and string ensembles, at Elmhurst. During April the E. l'l. S.
Spring Concert was held, followed by the Fox Valley Music Festival in May.
The new uniform blouses acquired this year marked a step forward in
appearance for the members of the orchestra.
The presiding officers of the senior orchestra were: president, Ioanne Weed,
vice-president, Guy Asher, and secretary-treasurer, Carolyn Bennorth.
A CAPPELLA CHOIR
When singers perform Without instrumental accompaniment, they are said
to sing A Cappella, from the Italian, meaning Hin choral style." Those making
up the chorus should think and act together as one instrument. The balanced
blending of voices, to harmonize with a keen and definite musical inflectiong
the attaining of a high standard of singing, the achieving of an enthusiastic
attitude toward singing and of close co-operation in singing are some of the
attributes of vocal training acquired in ensemble, or A Cappella, singing.
The E. H. S. A Cappella choir, composed of about sixty upper-classmen,
has been singing to appreciative audiences in Elgin and in surrounding cities,
spending a very busy season entertaining at banquets, assemblies, and pro-
grams. The choral repertoire includes compositions of varied types.
Clifford Thomas, head of the music department, is the director, and the
officers of the choir this year Were as follows: president, Bob Stevens, vice-
president, Mary Patterson, secretary-treasurer, lanet Stansell.

The thrills and chills, stories and
glories of aeronautics hold an attrac-
tion for young people having a mind
for romance and excitement. The E.
H. S. Aero Club helps develop this at-
traction into real interest by making
flying models, visiting airports, and
listening to aviation talks.
The meetings feature model airplane
demonstrations, reports by the mem-
bers, and aviation movies. This year

year by professionals, concerning pho-
tographic apparatus, movie series were
presented, and picture-taking contests
were held in which the best "shots"
were rewarded with prizes. Discussions
were carried on so that experienced
members might relate their problems

dent-taken pictures were turned in at
each meeting and commented upon.
Members range from persons having
only inexpensive box cameras to
those possessing valuable and complex
equipment. When the new dark room

HOME ECONOMICS CLUB
Aside from the satisfaction gained
through concocting delicious pastries,
the Home Economics Club members
have gained practical experience from
the work entailed, and much benefit
from interesting social-educational ac-
tivities. These experiences are a val-
uable asset to future homemakers.
As is customary, the club's main
project was centered on a contribution
to the home economics department.
This year the department has been ex-
panded to include a group of home
management rooms, two foods labora-
tories, one of which is set up in unit
kitchens, two clothing laboratories with

Of all the organizations which give
young men the chance to show their
capacity for leadership, the 1-li-Y is
one of the foremost. As it has for its
aim the preservation and maintenance
of high standards of Christian character
throughout the school and community,
one may easily realize the extent of
the programs which such an organiza-
tion might undertake. Exercising lead-
ership, however, is only one of the
many advantages the l-li-Y has to of-
fer, fellowship is another, created
among the members through a friendly
atmosphere. These, then, and many
more, are the profits which have been
reaped from the l-li-Y through the in-
