Who has given service of many kinds for more years than we can rernernber? Who is it whose very name spells school loyalty? Probably no one has stood out through the years in all these respects more than T. Arthur Larsen. l-le is as much a part ot El-l.S. as are the school colors, Maroon and Cream. A graduate ot the school himself, Mr. Larsen came back to teach in l9U8. He first taught science, then mathematics. Varied interests have stimulated his service to the school in many activities besides the classf room. His value was recognized by making him assistant principal in l924, in which position he has helped carry on the best EHS. traditions. Though he may be the symbol ol discipline to some, to most ot us and to our older brothers and sisters' yes, and to our mothers and dads, too he means Elgin High School.

School Nurse Parents confer with faculty The Quiririicullunii The work of all departments this year has been geared to a year shortened, be- cause of the war, to the minimum. The Physical Education Department has an all-around program to fit the present needs. The boys gym classes include calisthenic conditioning exercises, military drill, and Navy fitness tests, as well as the usual activities. Many health meas- ures are added such as health lectures and tests. The promotion of recreation and ath- letics and the organization of special classes in health, first aid, and home care of the sick are all methods ot contributing to the health interest and knowledge of the highschool girls. This is the goal of the Girls Health and Physical Education Department. The Mathematics Department this year is stressing more than ever the vital need for advanced mathematics for those who will go into the armed forces. This train- ing is essential as a background for future academic and practical work, Because the war has shown us the sort of training necessary in carrying on such branches as Radar, Nursing, Navigation, Chemical Research, as well as that need- ed for everyday living, the Department of Science in the high school has rededicated itself to the training of boys and girls in fundamentals of science. Better than ninety-five per cent of the senior and junior students in the Business Department are employed in jobs after school. This department sponsors a dis- tributive education program, students em- ployed in downtown retail establishments, and also directs a temporary employment bureau for the school to help meet the local manepower shortage. The Home Economics Department helps students learn to use to the best advan- tage the things available in war time, and to conserve and share. The student learns to serve and select meals, utilize rationed 'and unrationed foods, use new products, practice short cuts, and contribute to Red Cross clothing projects. Industrial Arts offer an educational field in which pupils develop a proper under- standing of manufacturing industry and the relationship of manufacturer, Worker, and consumer. These courses serve as try- out courses to discover students Who are capable of following industrial pursuits. Throughout high school the agriculture student is supervised in farm practice. ln this the boy develops those skills and capacities for making judgments essential in farming. Vocational Agriculture tries, therefore, to evolve an integrated indi- vidual capable of carrying on farming as a whole. ln the English Department, students are aided in perfecting their ability to com- municate more effectively. Development of a better appreciation of good literature through an extensive reading program and emphasis in the junior year on speech, dramatics, journalism, and literature add variety and interest. The Foreign Language Department of- fers as electives during any year of high school French, German, Latin, and Span- ish. Class room instruction includes read- ing, Writing, and speaking the language, in the case of modern languages, as Well as background work regarding the coun- tries using the languages. The Art Department endeavors to lead the student into the appreciation of beau- ty in living and good taste in the selection of the essentials of everyday life. lt also affords a means of expression and gives experience in the handling of the mediums through which art results are obtained. The Music Department offers instruction in vocal music as Well as in Wind and string instruments. The vocal Work con- sists of students in four organizations, so registered according to class and ability. Band and orchestra are offered to further instrumental instruction, perfection, and playing technique. No school can function Without effi- cient handling of business routine. Miss Boettcher and Miss Carlson in the office and Mrs. Lundeen, attendance director, have successfully carried on this part of the school.

Senior' Story IM L " IR.. IJ 1 , -2? Class officers and adviser The Class of 1945, numbering 360, en- tered into the school activities soon after their arrival in 1941. Mr. Shelby was the adviser. About thirty students entered the class from Abbott in the- sophomore year. At that time, too, Mr. Waggoner, better known as "Wag," became class sponsor. The class officers were Ioe Ladd, presi- dent, Pat Dougherty, vice-president, Bar- bara Anderson, secretary, and Chuck Becker, treasurer. The Snowflakes, with their purple and white class sweaters, began their third year resolving to help get the war over, and so aided in the Bond Drive and the Scrap Drive, some even left to fight for our country. Their class play, Hlunior Miss," fresh from Broadway, was a smash- ing hit and a sellout both nights. Snow- flake Flurry was the name of the junior party. The class officers were Howie Foell, president, Ed Franzen, vice-president, Connie Bendewald, treasurer, and Eleanor Davis, secretary. During the all-important senior year the if ' sk class was led by Ed Franzen, president, Ioe Konitzki, vice-president, Pat Dougher- ty, secretary, and Connie Bendewald, treasurer. The new upper classrnen par- ticipated in the Sixth War Loan Drive and managed the selling of refreshments at the football games. Sadie Hawkins Day was the theme of their class party, with a contest for Li'l Abner and Daisy Mae won by Ioe Ladd and Peg Miller. "Skyroad," another Broadway hit, was the class play of the year. The Snowflakes topped all other attendance records by scoring a complete sellout the day the tickets came out. The senior class is truly a war class. lt entered in September, 1941, with the threat of war, and then in three short months found itself in the midst of a global war. Many of the class upon reaching 17 left school for the service. The honor roll of '45 numbered about 30 before the last semester. Soon after graduation the ma- jority of the boys will leave for service or for the short-time advanced education allowed them.

The Student Council, representing as it does the entire student body, has tried this year to promote friendliness and co- operation between the faculty and the students. lt has been active in promoting the Community Chest Drive, the Iunior Red Cross, the T. B. and lnfantile Paralysis drives, cmd War Stamps and Bond drives. The Council aided materially in the Sixth War Loan Drive. New this year were the movies during the noon hour, which the Council initiated and continued until spring weather inter- fered. A Council committee worked with a faculty committee to set up the stand- ards for the '44 honor medal awards.

The students of Elgin High School, Elgin Academy, St. Edwards, and Abbott very successfully handled our city's Sixth War Loan Drive. The project was handled through a committee headed by Connie Bendewald, consisting of the students from each of the four schools. The drive was launched at the Armory through a fine program presented by the Glenview Avengers. lt was announced at that time that the twenty students with the greatest number of pledges and the five U S NAVY PHOTO with the greatest amount of money in pledges would be awarded a trip to Glenview. The students of the four schools col- lected 35530760 worth of bond pledges, going over the top of their goal of pur- chasing four Navy Avengers. The drive was climaxed at the Victory Ball held at the Armory, where the Avengers again played. Awards were presented to the schools for their efforts. ilD'LQll3ilT5litrgQ?1FS To guide the policies, oversee the finances, and generally supervise the acti- vities ot the "Mirror," the 'lMaroon," and "Spring Beignsf' the Publications Board meets once each month. This Board repre- sents the faculty and the student body, who together make up the Publications Association. Mr. Cartwright, president ex-officio, edi- tors, business managers, and sponsors ot all publications, and a representative from the Student Council make up the Board. This year's activities were more or less routine because all of the publications were in such good financial condition that no program nor magazine drive had to be sponsored.

This injury "jinx" was not thrown oft until the final game. Hard work made up for early losses. The returning letterman from last year's team were Phil Goldenstein, Chuck Garrett, Bill Turner, Tom Parker, and Don Westphal. Recognitions were bestowed upon Phil Goldenstein and Tom Parker. Phil was selected for the All-Illinois Prep team, which is selected by coaches and sport writers throughout the state, for fourth All-State team center. ln the Third All- State team, which is chosen by the Chi- cago Daily News, Tom Parker was named end. During the season Elgin's eleven won tour games out of ten, lost four, and tied two. The Challengers who yielded to our hard fighting team were Maine, Wauke- gan, West Aurora, and West Rockford. Our conquerors were Proviso, East Rock- ford, LaSalle-Peru, and Freeport. Those good enough not to lose, but not good enough to win were loliet and East Aurora. Our fellows showed a commendable fighting spirit. They went into each game with the determination to win and with confidence in their team mates, their coach, and themselves. Spirit and de- termination were the outstanding charac- teristics of the 1944 team. The managers were Don Turnquist, Ioe Hernandez, and Bob Smith. ", - '1 Au- - L, , . ' 'l 'l l "Vos ltf artist ii lwwoft lift it Coach Morris, Co-Captains Don Geldmacher and Bob Forney, Coach Al-learn. The fresh-soph football squad of l944 was composed of a fine group of highly spirited fellows. They started the season by tying Maine, only to lose the next four games, A change occurred after these loses, With a few shifts in the lineup and all ine juries healed, they started giving instead of taking. East Aurora fell first and then Glenbard. The boys ended the season in grand style by beating the unbeaten West Rockford minors. Mr, Morris was confronted with many problems, as most coaches are, and the greatest was that of having inexperienced material to work with. The team, which had no letter winners from last year, lost lack Chapman early in the season. Chuck Silliman replaced him at end. The other end was supported by Bob Farney. Doug Bielenberg and Larry Dunn furnished the competition for these posts. Dan Dopke, lack I-loye, and Bob Lind worked together. Don Geldmacher, George Underwood, Lyle Guertin, and Keith Bohlin covered the guard position. The backlield was SCORES Elgin Maine . handled neatly by Russ Drago, Al Turner, . Elgin Proviso. . Cal Perkins, and Al Sauceda. These boys were ably assisted by Bob Behrn, Frank Elgin East Rockford Voight, and Dick Fowler. All the boys, Elgin loliefe E - with the exception of Al Turner, will go Elgin West Aurora on to the varsity next year.

Swanson Recovery by Grai Tlie Elgin Varsity team started their vice tcrious season in a wonderful style. The boys first met and defeated Hinsdale and tfzen won from Proviso and Belvidere by large margins. Elgins first defeat came when Morton downed usa. The tirst Conference game was one of the best of the season as Elgin defeated the powerful West Rockford quintet by one point. Elgin came through again with an exciting contest against East Aurora. New Trier, however, gave us a jolt. The mighty Maroons, playing good basketball, took the next tliree games from East Racke ford, foliet, and West Aurora, Ereebort defeated us on their floor, but X fi.' e made up for this blow by taking East Aurora, Glenbard, and LaSalle-Peru. At loliet a rooffraising game brought us a Win, and at home the next week We beat West Aurora. This game made us the Big 8 Champs. ln the Dundee regionals the boys beat Palatine, Crystal Lake, and Dundee, thus being entitled to play in the Elgin sec- tional. The best thriller of the regionals was Elgin's comeback in the game with Dundee when in the first guarter Elgin was losing by twelve points. ln the sectionals they beat Waterman and Wheaton. ln Elgin's first sectional game with Waterman, a comparatively small school, Elgin led all through the game. ln the last quarter Waterman made a daring comeback only to be beaten by tive points. Parker Conquers the Ball Fl1O't1lTFHLliFIftlC?H ts With the Sweet "l6" at Urbana the boys took a favored East Rockford team 44-39, but the next night in a last-minute thriller Moline sank a basket the last few seconds, making the score Moline 4l, Elgin 39. The boys, however, brought home a tie for the 5th place. Tom Parker, who played excellent ball all season as well as through the tourna- ment, was named center on the second tourney team and Wally Graf was given honorable mention.

Elgin was represented at State by Chuck Smith and lim O'Rourke. Chuck won the county title in shot putg While O'Rourke, our lion-hearted distance man, qualified for the state meet by an heroic exhibition db- fe-fwmfl at the district meet held at East Aurora. Ralph Fowler rates high praise for his versatility in the high and low hurdles and also pole vault. Smith, O'Rourke, and Fowler Will be greatly missed this year. Chet Alexander had charge of track men While Edmund Ahearn coached the weight men. 4- The boys gym classes have done much to assure highschool youth an opportunity for sound physical training, benefiting them for future military service. Colis- thenics, tumbling, wrestling, basketball, and boxing are a few of the many sports offered each student. Thus training is di- vided so that the student not only gains skill and aptitude for one but is adjusted to a wide variety of sports. Allotment of Boys Daily Routines part of the gym period for each sport is the method by which this is carried out. A student's Well-being is also checked by frequent eye-tests, weight require- ments, and general health. High points of the year are the taking the US. Ndvy fitness test each semester. Mr. Krafft su- pervises the program, assisted by Mr. Ahearn, Mr. Morris, Mr. McLean, and Mr. Hall. Girls Sports Exercise for Health This year, as for the past two years, the theme for girls sports was "Keep Fit in Wartime." More time was added to the course, which made it possible to include more activities in the regular gym period. The program was built around calis- thenics with baseball, volleyball, basket- ball, and dancing added. Also the Physi- cal Pertormance Level tests were taken at the end of the semester. ln addition to the physical fitness pro- gram there are First Aid and Home Nurs- ing, two courses taken in the junior and senior years respectively. The girls taking these courses were awarded Red Cross Certificates. These classes have become a 'lmust" in the athletic program. Miss Logan and Mrs. Krol together di- rected the classes through the splendid program of "Keeping Fit in Wartime."
