"Efficient universal education is the mother of national
So said Emerson one hundred years ago and so say
all those who are vitally interested in our country today.
We of Elgin High School who are profiting by a carefully
planned educational system are realizing more than ever
that tomorroW's World depends on today's education.
We know that We must become intelligent, useful
citizens: that as well as preparing for a life occupation
and home making, we must prepare and train ourselves
in the social graces and in culture so that our country
reaches that place of fine leadership in the World for
which we hope.
Perhaps in the years to come this book will help us
understand what this school has done with its broad
curriculum and its varied activities to prepare us for
to the Logs
of Elgin High School Who would have received
their diplomas with us, but now are gone to serve
their country, we dedicate the l944 Maroon.

J- The Class of l944 entered Elgin High School in l94U and soon
if A became active in school functions. They began to organize in
-. 5- their first year. Arlie Rein was elected presidentg Walter Rust,
vice-presidentg lack Burmaster, secretaryg and Paul Ciraulo,
treasurer. Miss Elsie Fletcher was their adviser.
5.1, W A class council, composed of homeroom representatives and
class officers, was formed. This council was active throughout
the four years. The class constitution was written by this group.
During their sophomore year they numbered 460. They were the largest
sophomore class that E.l'l.S. had ever had. They participated in the tubercu-
losis test, which was given by the Kane County Medical Association. Officers
were Walter Rust, president, Nelly' Ventress, vice-presidentp and Bill Snell-
The juniors, with their kelly green and white class sweaters, began to accept
new responsibilities. The class was lead by Lloyd Rudolph, president, Nancy
Meagher, vice-president, and Carolyn Hameister, secretary. The class play
this year was "Ever Since Eve" and was presented in May. The class pennant,
designed by Carolyn Hameister, was presented. The junior year came to a
close with the junior-senior prom.
This last year was a busy and eventful one. The class was lead by Austin
Hansen, presidentg Bill Snellgrove, vice-president, and Nan lean Hansen,
secretary. For their service project, the class cleaned all the old banners.
The seniors managed the selling of refreshments during the football games
and sponsored a class party in the boys gym. Tuberculosis tests were again
taken by the seniors.
ln November the class play, "The Late Christopher Bean," was staged.
Many seniors benefited by Career Day and vocational guidance lecturers.
Green and white carnations were chosen as the class flowers and
"Onward, Forward, Upward" as their motto.

English is the basic subject for all studies, for if a
man can't express himself well and has little knowledge
of his own language, he can not be very successful.
Many officials in the armed forces of our country
have stated that English, vocabulary in particular, is
one of the factors seriously considered when determin-
ln an eltort to tit students not only for their com-
municational needs in business and in college but also
for these requirements in the armed forces, the English
department this year has laid added emphasis on
vocabulary and other reading and writing skills.
A sound English program is of the utmost value to
the student, and such a program is stressed at Elgin
High School. Three years of English taken during the
first, second, and fourth year are required. During the
third year a student may take speech, dramatics,
journalism, or literary types.
p ysical education and laeaftlz
The physical education department has
worked out a well-rounded plan that will
keep students physically fit and mentally
alert to meet arising problems of life.
ln the boys gym classes the boys learn
the different commands and drill exercises.
They also receive a little training in basket-
ball, boxing, tumbling, wrestling, and base-
ball. At different times throughout the se-
mester, tests are given to determine if the
boys are in good condition, for the most
part they are in very good condition. The
gym classes meet three times a week for
underclassmen and daily for seniors.
The girls physical education program
has changed from a three-year course of
two hours per week to four full years of
three hours a Week. The gym classes offer
an interesting program of calisthentics,
sports, rhythm exercises, and modern folk
ln addition to gym work, courses in
health are offered to freshmen and sopho-
mores, first aid to juniors, and home nurs-
ing for seniors. lf the girls qualify in the
last two courses, they receive American
Red Cross Standard Certificates.
The prevention of disease in the Elgin
Schools is stressed by Mrs. Mabel E. Silli-
man, supervising nurse, and her assistant
Mrs. Marie Schramrn.
On lanuary ll the Kane County Medical
Association offered a free tuberculosis test
to any teacher or senior wanting it. The re-
sults have proved helpful to many students.

This year the science department has
strived to make its program more concen-
trated and better fitted for both wartime
and peace time needs. Fundamental sci-
ence is becoming more valuable to the in-
dividual who will immediately take his
place in the industrial World after gradua-
tion and to the student who will enter col-
lege or any branch of the armed forces.
The physical sciences, such as chemistry
and physics, are now used as the basis for
teaching these fundamentals.
All freshmen are required to take general
science, a study of our environment and its
effects on us. It also includes a general
study of all the sciences.
The composition and functions of plant
and animal life are studied in biology.
Biology is an important foundation for the
study of medicine, as Well as healthful,
Physiography is a study of natural re-
sources, meteorology, land locations, and
rock formations. Some time is also spent
in learning the principles of global map-
ln chemistry the student learns about
matter and its changes. ln the laboratory
he proves for himself the reliability of facts
established by someone else instead of ac-
cepting as infallible everything he learns.
The principles and practical applications
of heat, light, mechanics, sound, and elec-
tricity are taught in physics. This training
will benefit the student in all types of work,
Are you planning to be a bombardier, a
meteorologist, an astronomer, an architect,
or an engineer? If you intend to follow any
one of these vocations, you must take
mathematics. Mathematics furnishes a good
foundation for any type of work,
The mathematics department offers busi-
ness arithmetic, algebra, plane and solid
geometry, and trigonometry. Business arith-
metic affords excellent training for the stu-
dents interested in bookkeeping. Elemen-
tary, advanced, and college algebra fur-
nish the fundamentals for more advanced
mathematical studies. Geometry is the
study of the properties and measurements
of lines, angles, surfaces, and solids.
An intensive program of the practical
applications of mathematical laws and
theorems is offered to students who soon
plan to join the armed forces.
Advanced slide rule instructions are also
'-H A- 'ffrf,',vj,1w: t'
offered to the students under the direction
of Miss Mary Peters.
Elgin High Schools business department
offers typing, shorthand, bookkeeping, busi-
ness law, salesmanship, and office training.
Through these many students find the type
of work they are most interested in doing.
Upper classmen are employed in part time
jobs after school as typists, stenographers,
bookkeepers, and other office assistants.
Approximately 96 per cent of the business
students have work experience in conjunc-
tion with their business subjects.
The department also sponsors a distribu-
tive education program, which is made up
of students employed in downtown retail
establishments, and also directs a tempo-
rary employment bureau for the entire
school to help meet the local man power

The recording of victory tax, monthly reports for
government administration tax, reports to each of
the one hundred different school funds, money obli-
gations connected with the basketball games and
tournaments are only a few of the responsibilities
of this phase of business.
The two foremost objectives of the home eco-
nomics department are to develop the students ap-
preciation of home making responsibilities and to
familiarize her with the most effective usage of
those things found in both home and community.
ln the foods classes the necessity of a balanced
diet is stressed. The girls are instructed in the plan-
ning, purchasing, and serving of point-saving meals.
Students who take clothing are
instructed in the quality and tex-
ture of materials, they are taught
the importance of style and color
in dress. Besides sewing garments
for the lunior Red Cross, the cloth-
ing classes have dressed dolls re-
presenting famous women of the
world and also in the different
uniforms of the Women's armed
t'Learn to do by doing" could
well be the motto of the Home Prob-
lems Classes. The girls learn how

ice, and plan and help prepare
nourishing point-saving meals in

The great demand for skilled and semi-skilled
help during the present emergency has greatly
emphasized the importance of industrial arts. We
have cooperated with local industrial, state, and
federal agencies in providing the type of training
needed to further the War effort. Young people
with shop experience have been in great demand
and have been found most satisfactory.
When this War is successfully concluded, the
people with mechanical ability and training will
find many new fields and opportunities available,
which at present are unknown to the general public.
The study of vocational agriculture in Elgin High
School is concerned with the practicalities of learn-
ing to farm as well as learning how to farm. The
theories studied in the classroom are correlated
with actual practices on the farm, and in this way
the directed and planned discussions are of more
significance and value.
A program of directed or supervised farm prac-
tice provides for the application of knowledge and
skills as an essential and final step in rounding
out a boy's training. Records are kept of all proj-
ect Work by the student, thus adding to his experi-
ence and aiding him materially in determining
wherein he was successful and wherein he must
modify or alter his operations. Then, too, some
consideration is directed toward arousing avoca-
tional or leisure-time activities.
Vocational guidance is incorporated into the
study of agriculture in order that each pupil may
derive a greater benefit from the skills he masters.
Thus his education for economic productiveness
will be more efficient and fruitful.

Through international communication and transpor-
tation the United States is being brought closer to the
other nations of the world, thus making a knowledge
of foreign languages play a more important part in
understanding the Work.
Four foreign languages are offered in Elgin High
School, each making its particular contribution to the
student. Some background in German helps a great
deal in music, the ministry, science, aviation, and
French is often desired for art, architecture, music,
and science. With the stressing of friendly relations
with South America, Spanish is valuable in Pan-
American business and communication.
Latin is considered the basic language for such
professions as law and medicine.

without a band playing at our football and
basketball games, marching in our parades,
and thrilling us in assemblies? Of course you
can't. And this year the band has again

program was more extensive and more
diversified than it ever has been, in-
cluding the raising of sheep, dairy and
beef cattle, swine, and poultry.
During the year they attended ex-
hibits at fairs, and took part in a judg-
ing cor.test at the sectional conference
at which they placed sixth in the grain
division. They were hosts to a section
al public speaking contest in April.
The club, boasting lO0'7Q member-

During the times of the game when
the boys are fighting their hardest, it is
the yells that cheer them on to even
greater effort. Without the cheerlead-
ers, there would be no organized cheer-

they need. Besides leading yells at
every basketball and football game,
these leaders give time and energy for

"Efficiency" is the key-note in becom-
ing a good typist, stenographer, book-
keeper, or any kind of office worker.
All students Who have such a common
interest enjoy the Commercial Club
meetings, at which one may hear
speakers, take field trips, and make
statistical studies of various businesses.

Prospects for a winning foot-
ball combination weren't Very
bright at the beginning of the
'43 season. There were no reg-
ulars back from last year's
team, and the four remaining
lettermen were the only nu-
cleus for the team. After the
season started this nucleus plus
the other new material proved
to be a winning combination.
, ..i, . ,
The lack of reserve power
was telling in several games.
After losing the traditional
Maine game, 6-U, the Maroon
pig-skin pushers rallied by tip-
ping the first three conference
teams into the cellar position
before dropping their first
league game to East Aurora.

Maroon halfback, affected the

team's success because Dick
had triple threat duties. The
team was at full strength in the
tinal game against W. Rock-
tord, conference champions,
and did themselves proud by
tying the champs in a rugged
scoring battle, l9-l9. Elgin Was
the only conference team that
came near beating West Rock-
ford in league competition.
Several members of the team
made special recognition.
Chuck Smith made all polls

Elgin's froshesoph team this
year proved to be a very wine
ning combination, ending the
season with a record of five
wins, one tie, and one loss.
These Maroonettes had a high
scoring punch which is proved
by the fact that they averaged
20 points per game to their op-
The outstanding feature of
the team was the fact that
there were two squads of boys

that received letters. This is
significant because it means
that twenty-two players had
capabilities enough to earn letf
ters. This promises a good team
in the next few years.

The Elgin Varsity team start-
ed the season with one return-
ing first string member, Captain
Karl Plath. There were a num-
ber of lettermen, including six
members of last year's tourna-
ment squad: lack Burmaster,
Sam Sauceda, Howard Kugath,
Bill Myers, Bill Goedert, and
Karl Plath. lim Bager is a name
that broke into the starting line-
Captain Karl Plath
up after the season progressed,
along with junior Tom Parker.
The first game with Glen-
bard, this year's suburban
league champs, proved to be a
close one, but we won 3l-30.
ln the next four games Elgin
looked very good, defeating
New Trier, Hinsdale, Belvidere,
and Morton by large margins.
The first conference game
was one of the best of the sea-
son as we beat the powerful
East Aurora quintet in a last
quarter rally 49-47. Elgin came
through again against the po-
tent East Bockford five, but in
Captain Plath and Couch Kralft Tom Parker and Bill Goedert
the next game against under-
dog loliet Elgin was handed a
jolt 39-37 - being beaten in
the last minutes of play. The
Maroons, playing good basket-
ball, took the next two from
West Aurora and Freeport.
When Elgin traveled down to
East Aurora to play the ques-
tionable Aurora line-up, we
suffered our worst defeat of the
season, although the boys were
fighting until the last basket.
Elgin came back and won four
in a row: LaSalle, revenge on
loliet, West Aurora, and Maine,
When the Maroons went to
Rockford, they met a team that
was all set for them and were
red hot whereas Elgin couldn't
hit much of anything. Results:
West Rockford--54, Elgin-39.

The fellows that turned out
for practice at the beginning of
the season looked like a prom-
ising outfit. The first two games,
however, didnt look so good
although they were won by
fairly large scores.

tough team to crack.
