That strange, popping, new-fangled contraption, the uhorseless carriage" would be uppermost in the minds of all graduates. The gasoline motor would completely change their way of life! But it isn't 1900. It is 1950, and the gray and red clad Nifty-Fifties are beginning their race for the pot of gold at the rainbow's end with thoughts of atomic research revolutionizing the 1950 way of life. In September of 1946, this class of 161 girls and 169 boys entered EHS and was greeted by the class sponsor, Miss Helen Kettering. That first fall a get- acquainted party displaying the hidden talents of these new freshmen was held. At the turn of the century there was no such organization as a class council. Unaltered by this inglorious reminder, the Nifty-Fifties during their sophomore year doodled their X on election ballots and placed Bruce Hansen, Virginia Landwehr, Audrey Hammen and Steve Morse into positions of class president, Iohn Thornton, president: Barbara Seyller, vice-president: V1Ce-president, SeC1'6fCt1'Y, and treasurer Barbara Loveday, secretary: Erhard Moosmann, treasurer: respectively. A representative from Miss Helen Keltedng' Sponsor' each home room was chosen and this completed the class council. The "Lumberjack Brawl," Mary Haas out-spelling every EHS brain in the spell-down assembly, and the entering of Abbott Iunior High School students are events to be remembered. The delivering of the flashy '50 rings and the gray and red sweaters during the junior year was the responsibility of the newly-elected officers Neil Morton, president, Barbara Seyller, vice- president, Maryann Pate, secretary, and Sheldon Westerback, treasurer. Under the direction of Miss Marge Biersach the class presented "Dear Ruth." X At last the half century year rang in-the year of many activities for the seniors. Iohn Thorn- ton, Barbara Seyller, Barbara Loveday and Erhard Moosmann guided the reins. Garth Dufield and Ianice Fishburn supervised the selling of refreshments at the football games. The Homecom- ing of '50 featured an assembly portraying a football game of 1900, a parade of floats through Fountain Square, a football game against East Aurora, and the Half Century Huddle dance. December l and 2 were the nights of "The Dead Sister's Secret," a hilarious comedy under the direction of Miss Biersach. The class selected for its motto, "Within ourselves the future lies." The class song to the tune of "Great Day" was written by Neta Reber and Iack Radke. Pat Akins designed ,Q ,A the pennant. Tify' ' K A' 1 To many the events which carry along with them the ff 5 1 best and yet the saddest memories come near the close K 'D of the school year--the Senior dinner, Class Day, Awards rg?

The seating capacity was insuiiicient to accommodate the 320 students and more room was a necessity. The basement oi the Little Norwegian Church was used tor classrooms. To relieve this situation the eighth grade was removed from the high school building and in the tall ol 1899 the freshman class was placed on the second floor ol Franklin school. This became known as the Branch High School. Freshmen had to run trom Branch High to Old High lor some oi their classes and only three minutes were allowed. Students had no lockers in which to place their equip- ment-merely desks for their books. There was no water in the building except in the old physics and chemistry labs. The library housed about twenty stu- dents at a time: the largest classroom in the school served for the auditorium: and the boys used a hall on Chicago Street for a gymnasium ior basketball. Gym classes for girls were unheard of: yet there was a girls' basketball team. Class plays were discontinued be- cause of the inconveniences encountered in putting them on in the old Opera House. No music organiza- tions existed except a girls' glee club. The school's only publication. the MIRROR. was issued once a month in a small magazine form. Manual training was iust not thought ot and domestic science fcookingl was a great attraction when it was oiiered in an old brick house standing about where the west part of the boys' gym is now.

In 1950, three main channels of academic study are offered: college preparatory, business, and vocational. To students seeking higher education, the list of college prepara- tory subiects, from which they may choose, is varied. The specific requirements are three years of English with the senior year College Preparatory English, and two years each of mathematics, foreign language, sci- ence, and social studies. The two years of required math involve a choice of algebra, plane geometry, advanced algebra, trigonometry, solid geometry or advanced math. The two years of a foreign language may be taken in French, Spanish, Latin, German. To meet the requirements for two units of science, a stu- dent may select from such subjects as general science, biology, physics, chemistry. The junior and senior years receive the brunt of the social studies require- ments, made up of American history, social problems, and economics. Through the medians of aptitude, mental, and achievement tests, plus a personal study of the stu- dent's ability and personality traits. faculty advisers counsel a college preparatory student in the proper preparation. U In 1950, educators believe that students should be doing things closely related to the occupations they will follow when they are earning a living. Elgin High offers courses for this purpose. They are building trades, cafeteria service, vocational printing, household arts, and crafts. Probably the most popular of these courses is the building trades. This includes machine, mechanical, and architectural drafting, electric work, welding, wood work, and machine shop. t I A, The printing course creates a desire for further knowl- ,flgv - edge along this line. The boys in the print shop classes kms ,fffj if give much service to the school by completing orders ffl' E-it in a professional manner ' I ,V gf A new course added to EHS's curriculum this year jg Egzgg was crafts.

Bookkeeping, typing, stenography, filing principles "is in the eating" of the delicious food served daily in the cafeteria. In household arts, clothing and home management prepare girls for intelligent purchasing of clothes and for dress making. The study of foods in connection with home management also prepares girls for later life. The general requirements for these courses are com- posed of three years of English with General English in the senior year: one year of mathematics: two years of social science composed of American history in the junior year and social problems and economics in the senior year: two years of science, one of which is general science. Related subjects of mathematics and science are required for the vocational shop courses. In 1896, a commercial course was added to the cur- riculum of E.H.S. It consisted of bookkeeping, com- mercial law, stenography, business practice, and type- writing. In 1950. personal business, typing, business law, bookkeeping, stenography, office training and salesman- ship are choices for the student following this course. During the last half of the sophomore year students may select a few exploratory courses in bookkeeping. personal typing, personal business to get a general understanding of the commercial field and its scope. Upon entering the junior year a student begins his commercial course in earnest. Shorthand, vocational typing, vocational bookkeeping. business law, sales- manship are offered as optional credits. A peek into the typing or shorthand room reveal intensely inter- ested students, conscientiously filling every moment. During their senior year, the advanced students receive first hand experience in putting into practice their acquired business knowledge and skill. Many of these students assume various duties around school. Oppor- tunities are provided for training in advanced short- hand, typing, duplicating. filing, personality develop- ment and office procedures. ranolmoffzer IMAJLLKJ .Have a udinedfi i e f Y-v ll s?

A student is sent to some office to work as an assistant. Additional skill mastery is acquired through training in comptometry, calculating machines and filing tech- niques. Upon graduation Mr. Robinson helps the student to be placed in an office position through the cooperation of down town business men. 46 -17 ' "' .3 H .N eilfq . ,fx uzl' ' F' 5 M55 .fgcfiuified fl? r .McLorg .SZCL QIQKGCQLJ dy ave Dr. Winters speaks at induction assembly.

In 1900 students were seen but seldom heard. In 1950 students are not only seen but clearly heard. The council gave us numer- ous line assemblies: an induction assembly with Dr. Carl Winters of Oak Park as guest speaker, the dedication of radio station WEPS, and pep assemblies. It sponsored the Harvest Dream dance, the taculty-student basketball game, the Iunior Red Cross State Hospital trips, the clean up drives, courtesy campaigns, safety pro- grams, charitable drives ior T.B., infantile paralysis, Red Cross, and the sending of 110 educational giit boxes overseas at Christ- mas. We're proud oi our Student Council and think it has been a grand success but due tribute cannot be paid to its two able advisers, Miss Irene Pielemeier and Ellison Hoke. 48 L ll lt:-it ralakolnkone laroufd agnfo L agifafion WU IOS The "wireless telephone"-we call it radio. now-was actually invented about 1900.

Its instant popularity grew through the years: now, at the mid-century mark our high school boasts of five singing groups-Treble Choir. Boys Glee, Mixed Chorus, Aeolian Choir, and A Cappella Choir-with the acme of achievement being membership in the A Cappella choir. This group was founded in 1935 by Miss Alma Schock for the purpose of entering a field of mixed a cappella singing heretofore untried in Elgin High School. This year the choir began its busy whirl of activities with eighty-one members under the direction of Mr. E. A. Hill. To pilot the organization through the eventful year of 1949-'50, the choir elected lack Broman to be president: Neta Reber, vice- president and business manager: Barbara Rouse. secretary: Barbara Lohse and Mary Rausch, librarians: Mary Clute and Marilyn Koch, robe custodians. Accompanists Vern Studt, Ioan Hardy and Kay Leonard have given valuable service to the group. The choir meets every day fourth period in room 343 where members endeavor to become acquainted with the best of old and modern compositions, both sacred and secular. Be- cause the main purpose of the club is to maintain a well- balanced choir which will present programs throughout the year, a good voice, ability to sing on pitch, good musicianship, and a willingness to sacrifice for the betterment of the group are essential requirements for membership. School had hardly begun when the A Cappella Choir, jointly with the orchestra, presented a fall concert "Operatic Nights."

Since that time the choir has appeared in concerts all over the city-the Thanksgiving Festival of Song at the First Methodist Church: Christian Youth Federation Council Service at the First Congre- gational Church: Vesper Concert at the Epworth Methodist Church: Vesper Concert at the Bethlehem Lutheran Church: the Christmas street broadcast sponsored by the Iunior Chamber oi Commerce of Elgin: Concert for the Woman's Club at Polo, Illi- nois: the dedicatory program for the public schools radio station, WEPS: the Sunrise Easter Service sponsored by the Youth Fed- eration of Churches. In addition to these services to the commu- nity. the choir has participated in its own school activities: a high school assembly program of song: the high school festival given jointly with all the other high school musical organiza- tions: the Fox Valley Musical Festival: Baccalaureate Service: Commencement. This year the choir has rendered fifteen public appearances in and about Elgin. Each year a few outstanding members, who win ratings in the district contest, are eligible to go to the state contest. Those receiving first division ratings as vocal soloists were Neta Reber, Nan Carver, Mary Stephens, Ianice Towner, Ann Thurnau, Sharon Hedblade, Meredith Parsons, Ianice Voltz: as a boys' octet fpictured at the leftl were Lester Ottinger, Donald Worm, David Long. Wendell Schmidtke, Lyle Welch, Leonard Behling, Alan Andreson and George Arnold. We at Elgin High are justly proud of a fine organization which has accomplished such exceptional work. The quality of this year's choir gives promise of a fine talented group for next year. Front Row: l to r: Mildred Davis, Mary Clute, Marilyn Koch, Joan Hardy, Acc., Mary Teeters, Eleanor Wright,.

Since its birth in 1912 with ten pieces. it has steadily grown in popularity because it consistently broadens its range ol music and increases its playing ability. As proof that "music hath charm" all iorty-one orchestra per- sonnel give up many of their noon hours and all study periods in order to retain their chairs in this excellent playing group. The ability to play an orchestral instrument and a vacancy in the orchestra are requirements for membership in the Elgin High School Orchestra. Fair competition is displayed when the members challenge one another lor first chair positions. The "chairs" are open for competi- tion every two weeks when each member plays a certain passage ol orchestra music that is currently up for rehearsals. The decision ol pro- motion to a higher chair is made by the complete sections of string players who listen to each other in these tryouts. By this means. new talents and abilities are discovered. The string section. tor the most part, meets each day to Work on new numbers and to perfect the older ones. Other sections likewise have their individual instruction. When the orchestra is asked to per- form publicly. Miss Marion Lailey, their very competent director, joins all the instrumentation and thus the concert orchestra is complete. Then the auditorium is a merry sight as the familiar "A" is sounded. Soon work gets under way and the beautiful orchestration of "The Knightsbridge March" by Coates tills the room. This year the group's activities have been many. During November the entire personnel went to Chicago to hear the performance of the Youth Orchestra of Greater Chicago, in which organization three Elgin High School students are members: Peter Giles. Beverly Baxman and 54 9 Nesler, Evelyn Best, John Wissmuth. FLUTE: Marcia Bailey, JoAnn Rogen. CLARINET: Leonard Behling, Mary Jane Heaton, Donald Krueger, Claudette Seymour. HORN: Peter Gilles.

During this month the orchestra also furnished the instru- mental background ior "Operatic Nights" presented by the A Cappella choir. In December, iointly with the E.H.S. choral groups, the orchestra assisted in presenting the annual Christmas concert. For the month ol March two outstanding events filled the orchestra calendar: The annual spring orchestra concert in the high school auditorium and the district contest tor soloists and ensembles at Arlington Heights. A string trio composed of Carol Crichton, Ianice Towner and Karen Vollman won first rating: a string quintet, Beverly Baxman, Mary Tyrrell, Nancy Peirce, Carol Crichton and Iean Lueck also had a tirst rating. These groups competed at the state contest held at Quincy, Illinois, on April 28 and 29. On May 2, the combined music organizations presented their Elginland Music Festival and on May 8 the Fox Valley Music Festival was held. Because of the outstanding work accomplished by the concert orches- tra, it was called upon by many local organizations to provide music. Particularly active in giving service to the public were the two stringed ensembles. The string quintet performed at the following: Music Parents Association, Home Economics Tea, Cosmopolitan Club, American Asso- ciation of University Women. Chamber oi Commerce broadcast ot Christ- mas music at Fountain Square, Rotary Club, Elgin Musician's Club, Lin- coln P.T.A., Mission Union M. E. Church, Lenten noon services at Cook's Publishing Plant, and the Women's Club ot St. Paul's Church. The string trio had an equally active calendar, periorming at the Business and Professional Women's Tea, Sherman Hospital nurse's party, Kiwanis Club, Lion's Club, Congregational Church morning services, Masonic Order, Sheridan P.T.A., Elgin's radio station at Fox Hotel, Catholic Daughter's Tea, Grace M.

Except for two years during wartime the Fox Valley Music Educator's Club has sponsored the Festival which has gained national recognition- a fact which is borne out by the top-notch conductors who come from distant points to serve as guest con- ductors. In the past these groups have been thrilled and inspired by such leaders as Noble Cain, Oscar Anderson, Ray Dvorak, Dr. Frederick Toenniges, Olaf Christiansen, George Dasch, William Revelli and Herbert Huffman. Personnel for the various Festival groups is usually distributed by giving each school percentages of the organization enrollment, thereby giving each school its iust share of participants. There are two rehearsals with the guest conductors. One is on a Sunday after- noon and the second on the following Monday after- noon, with the Festival concert on Monday evening. These rehearsals form the finest of the educational fea- tures of the Festival, as the guest conductors work with the students of their groups for four hours of each of the two days. The Festival Orchestra performed the following pro- gram: March of the Meistersingers - - - Wagner-Herfurth Sailor's Hornpipe -------- De Lamater Romance, from Woodland Pictures - - - Fletcher Pixie Dance ------ - - Langlitz Hungarian Comedy ----- - Keler-Herfurth El Relicario -------- Padilla-Isaac Of special interest on the program, the "Pixie Dance" composed for orchestra by the Festival's Orchestra Chairman, Vincent Langlitz of East Aurora, drew equal appreciation from performers and audience. Already 150 band students are learning parts to be ready to play under the direction of Colonel George S. Howard from the United States Air Force Band: 135 orchestra students are eagerly looking forward to their guest conductor, Iohn M. Kuypers of the University of Illinois: and over 700 high school vocalists are antici- pating the rich experience which will be theirs when Maynard Klein of the University of Michigan conducts the huge chorus for the May 8, 1950, Festival.

Following the lootball season the band directed its activities toward the Christmas parade and three assembly programs. The opening ot spring brought the annual spring band concert and contests. At the district contest held at Arlington Heights lirst ratings went to Frederick Wyman, saxophonist: Mary Heaton, Claudette Seymour, Nan Turnquist. a clarinet trio: Lester Ottinger and Robert Bellows, a trumpet duet. These students completed in the state finals at Quincy, Illinois. Near the close of the school year the Fox Valley Music Festival and the Elginland Music Festival occupied the band's musical skill. An Abbott assembly and the Memorial Day Parade completed the year's activities. All civic parades require the performance of these Musicians who march and play along whether it's in the beating sun, cold rain, sleet, or October's bright blue weather.

I snapped some pictures, too, treading from L. to RJ First I stumbled into the Collector's Club where J. Voltz, president, and Miss Rupp, sponsor, were poring over a "Jenny, put-the-kettle-on" doll, one of B. I-Iost's collection. In the hall again I met B. Lohse and G. Gabler who escorted me to the business and machine demonstration sponsored by the 'Commerce Council. Mr. Arnold let me tinker with a comptometer but it was all Greek to me, so I hastened to the Spanish Club. "Habla usted espanol?" asked D. .Ioerns as I entered 114. I went blank on that one. A group of young people from Mexican families was pre- senting some Spanish dances. Feeling like Fibber McGee in Molly's closet I took off for the Latin Club. Here N. Murphy, president, invited me to join the grofup in singing songs in Latin! Since the only Latin I knew was "Ego ammo te," I greeted Miss Linkfleld and hurried to the German Club. A group of eighty students, captained by W. Schmirltke, was planning a banquet. Miss Engel- brecht sponsor, said "Werden Sie mit uns zu dem Weihnachtsfest kommen?" Not knowing what she said I guess I won't go. By accident I stumbled into 120 where E. Walker and J. Benson were demonstrating the operation of the steam engine to M. Klatt, J. Rockwell, and Mr. Larson, sponsor, of the Demonstrator's Club. Next I hlusterecl into the broadcasting station. The Hi-Y boys were on the air describing Youth Day when Hi-Y boys from all over the state take over the state government for one day. I almost joined this club for politi- cians drive Cadillacs! I tip-toed out of there and meandered into a dark room. Mr. Stuart, the Photography Club sponsor, was explaining to A. Granskog, president, that one usually put film into a camera to take a picture. .lust as I came out of the dark room I bumped into D. Wilcox with some other future teachers and Miss Siren. They were on their way to visit the Harriet Gifford Elementary School. Since I have too much school with E.H.S. I declined their invitation. It was then that I noticed a "brain" carrying a copy of Einstein's "Theory of Relativity" in his hand. He sauntered into Mr. CantreIl's room and I put two and two together that he must be Fred Burns, president of the Chem-Phys. Club. Next I met the Senior Literature Members who were Chicago hound to see the play "Kiss Me Kate." Charlotte Fletcher, president, invited me to go, too, but I didn't have a ticket. Next I went in search of Miss Stearn's knitting Club where a group of girls were jiggling needles like puppets on a string making mittens for the Hixon orphanage. Eileen Oeschle was the president. "Farley-vous francais," called Mary Tyrrell as I passed Mrs. Pasel's room where the French Club members were packing boxes to send to needy families in France. I hastened on to the Future Farmers Club meeting in Mr. Raplus' room. Here Howard Schifferer, president, explain- ed how to notch pig's ears. Last but not least I came upon Neil Morton, president, and the E Club boys in Mr. Roggen's room planning a dance. Thus ended my snoopervising tour. E Parkin Sociazi guofue X, f f C6 W 50 'X , au!

Frederick- Business Manager. Flashback, MIRROR, September, 1898. Nearly a year has elapsed since the class of '98 published the first issue of the high school paper and its founders have now passed beyond the walls of the high school, leav- ing as a legacy the result of their effort-the MIRROR. In the fifty years of progress E.H.S.'s MIRROR has grown from inconsequential "literary efforts" issued monthly to the carefully organized student newspaper of today. The basic platform upon which the paper is built is that of democracy. Effort is made to get news stories about all the students, not iust a clique, with the staff remaining anonymous. Deadlines, roaring presses, clacking typewriters, the smell of fresh black ink, the thrill that comes with a "by-line," the democratic plat- form upon which the paper is founded-all these have lured many students to work on E.H.S.'s MIRROR. It is printed bi-weekly during the school year except Thanks- giving and Christmas vacations and during semester examinations by the students of E.H.S. under the direc- tion of Miss Enid Burns, adviser. The editorial board consisted of C. Fletcher, chairman and editor first se- mester: I. Fiddler, L., Schlief, co-editors. second semes- ter: L. Kenyon, B. Richards, associate editors. News reporters were I. Bryan, B. Barnhart, E. Best, I. Kammrad, P. McBride, I. Schultz, I. Thorwalden, C. M. Nelson, M. Atchisson and C. Moss. Feature writers M. Friedricks, D. Scarbrough. N. Therien. Sports writers were G. Steffen, editor, D. Kovacs, B. West- lund, I. Helsdon. C. Wright. Business manager was E. Frederick. Adver- tising department consisted of L. Schrieber, B. Lohse, B. Iuby. Circu- lation was maneged by L. Vogt. The life of a MIRROR staff mem- ber is, however, not all work. Here and there throughout the year are bright spots that definitely spell fun. One of these was the trip to Chicago to enioy "Kiss Me Kate" at the Shu- bert Theater. Another of course, was the annual Publication Board ban- quet at which time the faithful and conscientious were awarded pins. and attending high school press con- ferences. ..- -, l'4 u t I Il I in 1 I H .A e 5 First semester staff prepares copy.

Since that time the policy ol this publication has been to give to our high school and community the maximum standard of quality at the lowest minimum cost. In 1933 a Publication Board was organized. Be- fore this time the MIRROR and MAROON were publica- tions independent oi each other, but under the man- agement ot the Publication Board they have been brought into one strong organization. The Publication Board consists of our principal, the head oi the English department, the advisers of both MIRROR and MAROON, the print shop instructor. editors of MIRROR and MA- ROON, business managers of both publications, and a Student Council representative. This board has gen- eral supervision over both publications. No yearbook was ever published without months of planning and hours of hard work that can be termed nothing but drudgery. Seldom, however, do the read- ers have a chance to look behind the scenes and watch the people responsible for its publication. Head- ing the editorial staii as co-editors were P. Akins and C. Hoeis. On the iinancial end oi the book was I. Schurmeier, assisted by a large sales crew: B. Fern. D. Akins, B. Hooper, K. Iones, P. Lasher, P. Westphal, I. Newby, M. Parsons, M. Christensen, M. Wood, V. Burnidge, K. Chapman, H. Horne. Wielding the camera were W. Rovelstad, I. Humphrey, C. Roessler, H. Hunter, D. Larson, A. Gronskog. Mr. Stuart assisted with the photography. For those of you who read the print C. Hoels, I. Thorwalden, H. Pearsall were the people behind the write-ups. Pounding the typewriters hours on end were M. Villella, M. Pentz, D. Parrish, K. Kin- singer. M. Weatherbee. Credit also goes to K. Bryer and F. Worm for the art work. Miss Stoifregen was yearbook adviser. The 1950 MAROON has had as its aim the recording of growth at E.H.S. from the turn of the century. We have worked toward the goal of giv- ing to the students a yearbook that not only will be valuable now but also during the future years. We hope our students will treasure it as a memento oi a high school year tully lived. 5 , .6 , .- XI I i' 1 rl I .If 'sf gwccrrowt 0!6!.!4l"9lfLl'l'LQlflf5 810185 Ll' 6LfQ Elgin High School believes that the art of public speaking is a definite asset in every- day life, so for years a course in debate has been offered to students of any class or cur- riculum. This year fourteen students advanced in the debate class for instruction under var- sity coach H. H. Shelby while seventeen en- rolled in the Frosh-Soph squad under the guidance of Iohn Conzelman. The topic for this year was-"Resolved That the President of the United States Should Be Elected by Direct Vote of the People." Georgia Gabler and Ed Walker represented the affirmative side with Donna Lawrence and Ginny Land- wehr representing the negative side. At the Big Eight conference meet held at East Au- rora, Elgin placed second in debate. second in extemporaneous speaking. and third place in oratory. At Augustana on Ianuary 27 and 28. Elgin placed fourth in debate. This was the first important tournament in which schools from Illinois and Iowa took part. Our individual stars had a chance to shine when the Illinois district tournament was held at Elgin on February 25. Elgin placed first in oratory, extemporaneous speaking, and ora- torical declamation: third in comedy: seventh in serious reading and verse. At the Illinois sectional held at Rockford's West High School, one of six such tournaments throughout the state, Elgin swept through to win the section- al championship. Elgin High's affirmative team, Georgia Gabler. Ion Warner and Ed Walker merited decisions over New Trier, Sandwich and Evanston. The negative team, Donna Lawrence and Ginny Landwehr, won from Waukegan, Niles Township and Rochelle. This gave Elgin first place in debate. Ginny Landwehr won second place honors in ex- temporaneous speaking. Her subject was "Should More Displaced Persons Be Admitted Into the United States." George Stevens merited second place in original oratory. His oration regarding the Hoover Commission re- port was entitled "That All May Benefit." Ad- vancing to the Illinois State Finals at the University of Illinois our debate squad placed fourth in the individual contests. and George Stevens won second place in original oratory. Virginia Landwehr won first place in the state of Illinois in extemporaneous speaking. As a fitting climax to Virginia's four years in speech competition. she advanced into the national tournament at Kenosha, Wisconsin. In competition for three days with twenty-six of the top ranking speakers among high school students from all parts of the United States fall boysl, Virginia won first place. It was the first time in the twenty-five years of existence of the National Forensic League that a girl was declared winner. The six topics upon which Virginia spoke were "Federal Aid to Educa- tion," "Is Socialized Medicine the Answer in America?" "The Hoover Commission Recom- mendation for Reorganization of the State De- partment." "Should We End the Occupation of Iapan?" "What Can Be Done in Our Com- munities to Thwart Communism?" and "Should the Communist Party Be Outlawed in the United States?" to Varsity debate sqwaclg Virginia Landwehr, .lon Warner, Georgia Gabler, Eddie Walker, Donna Lawrence.

Let's scan the G.1-LA. calendar. It was filled with major activities such as volleyball, basketball, and softball, and numerous individual sports, some of which were archery, table tennis, bowl- ing, badminton, track, golf, ice skating, horseback riding, modern dance, tum- bling, and cheerleading. In order to be an active member of the GJ-LA. each girl must participate in two major activi- ties and one team activity per year. Reading from left to right, the first row pictures the G.A.A. officers Mildred Davis, Sue Martell, and Gale Brittin: a co- recreational ping pong game: square dancing, co-educational, which has brought many boys to the girls gym: and a gym class. The second row features tennis, calisthenics, and field hockey. Row three shows archery fmodern William Tells?J, modern dancers fHollywood bound?J, basketball, and cheerleading. Q' 'k 'k W Flashback. 1t's 1900. Let's scan the Girls' Athletic calendar. It was filled with one event-basketball. The following article was clipped from an E.H.S. "Mirror," dated February, 1900. The first public game of basketball of the high school girls at Columbus hall Friday evening, February 19, 1900, was a decided success. The girls showed that it was possible for them to play football on occasions. A foul fin the football sensel was occasion- ally noticed, but on the whole the girls were quite good natured. The seating and standing capacity was fully taxed. At times the girls displayed more vim than the boys in previous games have shown. Some of the spectators nearest the fracas were severely handled by the girls in their frantic plunges "after the ball." We have the unpleasant duty of observing that some of the players were seen to slap and notwithstanding many admonitions from kind friends not to scratch, some of this latter feminine weakness was indulged in. However, this was undoubtedly done by the girls in total unconsciousness. Some of the girls displayed remarkable agility and pres- ence of mind. Miss Bertha Hammond and Miss Ida Kleiser distinguished themselves and did much for their cause. No shriek- ing was indulged in-by the players. lt would seem that these girls, part of whom are timid, would have been dismayed by their vociferous surroundings on this their first appearance as basketballists, but on the contrary, they intimidized some of the people on the inner row of spectators. The game was fast and furious and com- paratively devoid of fouls. The general opinion promulgated that evening by all was that the girls were all right and a large number of cheers and some cat calls were freely administered. Needless to say the Orange won from the Reds by a score of 6 to 4. ,.. 'fix N E. QU 045330 fgflf' rig Q , 1.1 iw- r f ' f -.1 .NU I l?1'.JfJ Li- bf , ,t 1 , v 4 x .

Elgin proved it had a quick, powerful backfield and a strong line. Dick Simonsen smashing his way for two touchdowns and Ken Saner adding a third crushed the York team by a score of 18-0. Bob Sandberg. Elgin's "fifth" backfield man, suffered a broken leg. Ioliet-September 30. Playing their first Big Eight Conference game, Elgin scored an 18-14 win over Ioliet. The first half of the game was tight: in the last half Elgin scored. East Aurora-October 7. Before a record Homecoming crowd Elgin trampled the East Aurora team with a score of 14-6. Ken Saner and Dick Simonsen made the touchdowns and Willard Schuldt kicked both conversions. Leyden-October 14. Although the Maroons had an easy time subduing their opponents with a score of 20-U, there was a casualty. Bruce Hansen received a head iniury. LaSalle-Peru-October 21. The first team of the season to bury Elgin in the muddy field and to hold the Maroon's yardage to 44W was L-P with 18 points to Elgin 0. A terrific downpour flooded the field and drowned Elgin's chances against L-P's consistent attacks at every play. West Rockford-October 28. Not having recovered from the LaSalle-Peru loss the Maroons suffered their second defeat by a score of 42-13. Freeport-November 4.

Roger Zeigler accounted for two. Willard Schuldt converted by placement twice. East Rockford-November 18. The Maroons concluded the sea- son with a 35-6 victory over East Rockford. It was Mom and Dad's night. Punjab Simonsen plunged his way to two touch- downs. breaking all Big Eight individual scoring records by bringing his season total to 73 points.

The return oi our soldier boys fSpanish-American Warl brings to town some of our old comrades in ioct- ball. If Graham, Ioslyn, Batterman and Randall appear in alumni games, they will make it interesting for some of our teams. tk 'k k k The faculty are taking hold and helping the boys in their work. Mr. Bebout has taken the team under his guidance. Castle, Newman, Landborg, Briggs, Hynes. O'Connell, Dakin and Hammond of last year's team are back. Brenner is in school and the boys are laboring with him so he will come back into the game. At the beginning oi the year Crafts was elected cap- tain but as he was not sure of coming back Castle was chosen to fill his place until he should return. 'i' Q i 'k If a team has no support from the members oi the school how can that team be expected to win. Should we not try and make it less hard for them to bear defeat than to roast them at every misplay? When they arrive home from a hard game defeated and used up we should not line up on the sidewalk and make them run the gauntlet oi abuse - - - attend the games. Where, O where is the lad with his best girl friend? Let him bring her. Surely she deserves it. If I were a girl and were fortunate enough to possess a best boy friend I would see that he had life enough to take me to a game or else I would try to find one who would. it, Ken ?

In the second half Crafts. who had come only as a spectator, was persuaded to enter the game, taking Dakin's place, who was sick. Within eight minutes, thanks to Hammond and Crafts with their grand efforts at tandem buck, the ball was pushed over and people brightened .... The wonderful, good right leg of one of Hyde Park's illustrious sons served her well. Hyde Park's attempted end runs didn't run and kicking was resorted to. - - - Everyone was silent now. Faces lengthened and serious thoughts filled their minds but the game went on. Finally time was called preventing Elgin from scoring, which she surely must have done for our boys had come to life again. i 'R' 'k 'k Lake Geneva vs. Elgin at Lake Geneva. We can take credit for having played against five ringers, one of whom has played two years on the University of Wisconsin. Notwithstanding their great size of body and advance in years, they would have to acknowl- edge, if they told the truth, that they were not equal in playing our team. Their best player was their referee who showed great proficiency in doing his part of the game. The game ended, so the Genevas say, with a score of 5 to 5 in their favor. if it 1: i' Our Lake Geneva friends were very kind in return- ing to us our football which strayed away, probably among their numerous apple orchards. It arrived home on Tuesday following our game with them. 'R i' 'k 1 Saturday, October 22, 1900. About half our high school team and three or four of our other boys ften in alll lined up against the East Ends at Trout Park and defeated them to the tune of 15-5. That was where Briggs received his beauty spot from coming in con- tact with Green's block Cheadl. it 'R i' it West Aurora vs. Elgin. Elgin kicked off to Aurora, but Hart got the ball on a fumble. It was given to Hammond for a tackle play but he never stopped run- ning until after he had crossed the goal line for Elgin. ir k k i' Elgin is now the undoubted champion of the High Schools oi Illinois. Great credit is due Capt. McNerney for the work he has done for the team, not only as captain and quarterback, but as coach, which place Coach Ebbert briefs the squad. he has been compelled to fill at times.

Coach Ebbert began with a green crew and gradually molded them into a fine ball team. Their conference record stood at six wins and four losses, good enough for third place in the Big Eight. The first conference loss was to LaSalle-Peru by a count of 21-32. Then followed three close battles- one to West Rockford in overtime which the yearlings dropped by two points: another, a one point decision to East Rockford: finally a 42-45 beating at the hands of Ioliet's Steelmites. Conference victories were at the expense of Freeport by a ten point decision: East Aurora, two games. with scores of 43-19 and 58-21: West Aurora, two games: Ioliet by a. six point decision. The non-conference regular reason record of the under- classmen shaped up with wins from Leyden, Maine, Proviso and Oak Park and losses to Morton and DeKalb. With tournament time upon them the yearlings ventured to Belvidere to play their first game of the 16 team invitational meet. That Saturday they were subdued by Sycamore 29 to 52. Since it was a double elimina- ion tournament, Elgin's next game was with Genoa, a game which they won 37-34. The third game found Elgin winning a close one, 37-33. ln the final game for the consolation championship, the Maroons turned in a record breaking performance. downing Woodstock 71-45.

The next two meets went to Elgin by a great majority, York 29-7 and Riverside 24-8. Although the Maroon matmen lost the next lour contests-Thornton 27-8, Ioliet 22-9, Waukegan 21-19, Evanston 17-15, they gave their opponents a scrappy battle. Many honors came to the team at the sectional tour- nament held at New Trier. Elgin placed iourth with 17 points. Individuals who received honors were Iim Trotz, a senior, who took second at 127 lbs.: Dave Martin, 103 lbs.: Denny Robinson, 120 lbs.. and Rudy Wendt, 154 lbs., took third place medals.

When Coach Scharl was asked about the season, he said, "We had a satisfactory season but we couldn't pull the close ones out ol the fire." QW E.H.S. golf squad ended its 1949 season by taking filth in the Big Eight tourna- ment and closed its season's record with four wins and tour losses.

The Maroon baseball squad had a fine season last year with a record ol 10 wins. three losses and two ties. Highlights ot the season included a no-hit, no-run game by Ron Weisner. Elgin High's first night game, and Ron Ultes winning the batting championship tor the second straight year. Weisner's no-hit game came against Wheaton in mid-season. He won it by a 3-0 margin. The night game was the final game ol the season. Ron Weisner faced Iim Schuldt and the Dundee team who previously in the season had lost to the Maroons and then shut them out in the district tournament, 3-0. Both teams, playing under lights lor the lirst time, obviously under the influence ol the iitters, committed an ample allotment oi errors in the game. Elgin was credited with eight miscues, while Dundee fouled up six chances. Although the Maroons could only gather two singles from the right arm oi Schuldt, they used them to good advantage as Elgin went on to win 5-3. Ron Ultes led the Maroons in batting tor the second straight year with a .312 average. In 1948 he hit .358. Coach Roggen has six returning lettermen on this year's squad. afiedaf enniri The Elgin tennis team, coached by Mr. Byrus Hall. had only a iair season in '49, winning five, losing six, and tying one.
