Returned to our class this year Bringing to us lots of cheer. With purpose high and courage strong He smilingly moves among the throng. DONALD—V. Pres., Student Council Representative Whenever there is work to do Call on Donnie to see it through. MARLIN MARY RUTH LENORA ROBERT TED PHYLLIS JOYCE DON BOBBY VIRGINIA If the topic is not a sport line A lad of few words—you will find. “Smiling along the ways she goes Carefree and happy; no thought of woe.” “Gay, sparkling, short, and sweet, Busy, friendly, and very neat.” “Always merry, never glum Make a bright and cheerful chum.” Never a worry, never a care That’s Ted with a dare. She has personality and pep, yet There’s knowledge beneath her hair of jet. Quick with a friendly smile You can count on Joyce for many a mile. When Don begins to sing We admit it is the real thing. In basketball he did excel Playing always till the final bell. High ideals and aim so true Will always guide her through. 1 9 4 8  SENIOR PERSONALITIES Build a fire, paint the windows and the doors. How do we fix this or what do we do? These cries to him are not bores. For Donnie Beck, they are pleasant chores. A ring once told the tale. Of this lass so short and gay. Instead of sewing her life away, Lenora, her vows ill take, after Graduation Day. For Robert, basketball is fun, And school is sure a snap. He loves to laugh and make time gay, Right in there pitching in work and play. The band would like to own, Virginia and her magic trombone. Her curly hair with its bright golden glows In college will win her many admiring beaus. For Joyce, cooking is no chore, And of course boys are no bore. But one individual monopolises her time, And no doubt in the future will hold the same line. Marlin plays on the basketball team, Down the floor he goes so fast and full of steam. He is a quiet little lad, And always cheeful, never sad. Then in line come Ted, With a curly brown haired head. He'd like to have his grades up high. But we‘re sure he'll get by. Four years he has played basketball. And it Is an asset for Bobby to be tall. But when it comes to good school work, Bobby never needs to shirk. For Wayne it is no task. To have his grades high. He carries the gang to and from school A job he’ll never deny. To gallop along without a care. Was Raymond, when to school he rode his horse. We're sure the brains under his firey red hair. Will help him in his engineering course. Mary Ruth came from Galesburg, Illinois In Galena she spent her Junior year. And there is no one certain boy. She 11 go to Monmouth without shedding a tear. Janette has bright golden hair And a lad in Galena thinks she is quite fair. Her Junior year, in Dubuque she attended school And we know she doesn t mind the teachers rule. Phyllis makes the honor roll And is a winner in other roles. Whether bookkeeper for an implement firm. Or keeping immune from the love germ. For Don it is no task To have him sing all we need to do i ask. On to college he will go. And make good, we all know. 19 4 8  0 I Hu vino rd Retis.'h Janette Wiley Wayne Krohmer I on Beck President 2-4 Secretary 4 Vice Pres. 1 V. Pres. 4 Student Council 3 Student Council 2 Treasurer 4 S.

Thus a knowledge of our language is important to every individual. Four years of English are offered in Elizabeth High School. English I, II, and III, were taught this year by Miss Berg. Each of these courses contained a semester of grammar and one semester of literature. Special assignments, such as writing themes, preparing articles for the Key, and giving book reports were also required. Mrs. Schubert taught English IV. This course also included a semester of grammar and a semester of literature. Other assignments were the writing of articles for the annual; creative writing, which included essays and short stories, writing poems for the anthology; public speaking, debating, and choral reading. 0 ENGLISH II Miss Dorothy Berg “A good poem goes about the world offering itself to reasonable men, who read it with joy and carry it to their reasonable neighbors. ENGLISH III Miss Dorothy Berg “They liked the book the better, the more it made them cry." (She Stoops To Conquer) ENGLISH IV Mrs. Harry Schubert “Macbeth shall never vanquish’d be until Great Birnam wood to high Dunsinane hill Shall come against him.” —ShakespeareTERRAPIN ‘ !f" Q T THE MATHEMATICS CLASSES The mathematics classes include elementary algebra for freshmen, plane geometry for the sophomores and advanced mathematics for juniors and seniors. The elementary algebra class is a simple course to introduce beginners to higher mathematics giving them the basic fundamentals as a foundation for geometry and advanced mathematics. The purpose of the geometry class is primarily to teach the students to reason, to develop habits of thought, and to set down these thoughts in logical order. However, after strdving the many interesting properties of geometric figures, the students have a better appreciation of man’s works in art and architecture and of the wonderful creations found in nature. Besides the cultural values acquired, many students who intend to become artists, designer's, machinists, carpenters, or to engage in related occupations need geometry for its practical value. The advanced algebra and trigonometry classes are mainly college preparatory courses for juniors and seniors and are elective. The students in these classes are given a review in the fundamentals of algebra and geometry with more dfficult applications and are taught the essentials of trigonometry. In these classes they strive for efficiency in trigonometric functions, and in the use of logarithms which they as future engineers, chemists, laboratory technicians, or mathematicians will need. nmm i ■■BBKSWaUUBU 1 9 1 v MiiTBigir IMa™ T E R R A P I N ALGEBRA I Miss Clara Rose Faist T BIOLOGY Mr. A.

General Science introduces the beginning student to all sciences.BUSINESS EDUCATION Elizabeth High School offers several courses in Commercial Education. General Business Training, a course in which mostly sophomore students are enrolled, teaches the fundamentals of business procedure, business forms, and practices. Elementary bookkeeping is taught to juniors and seniors. This course aims to present the essentials of bookkeeping needed by the average businessman. Typewrit’ng I is available to students during all four years of high school and is a required subject for those students enrolled in shorthand. A second year of typing is offered to students who expect to continue with advanced work in Commerce. Shorthand I is offered alternate years, to juniors and seniors.GENERAL BUSINESS TRAINING Mrs. Schubert T BOOKKEEPING Mrs. Schubert “Combining business with pleasure is all very well, but a much harder thing to do is to combine business with profit.” ANNUAL STAFF We enjoyed the hours spent securing ads, collecting snaps, typing and checking copy, searching for captions, and planning locations; in order that the annual might become a reality. The annual staff is happy the 1948 Terrapin is finished and they hope you will enjoy these glimpses of their school life.

Mr. Murphy teaches World History, Citizenship, and Economic Geography, the subjects which make up our social science depan me nt. World History deals with man from his earliest beginning to the atomic bomb and television. Citizenship evaluates the duties, rights, and privileges of National, State, County and City government. Economic Geography compares our friendly neighbors of South America with the geographic conditions of North America. Our dependence on other parts of the world for certain products is also emphasized. In all of these social science classes one day a week is devoted to Currents Events or the important news events and their importance to our everyday life. All students in these classes take a weekly paper which is read and discussed as a part of class activity.

The class meets twice weekly under the direction of Dorothy M. Berg. Thirty-five girls have participated in basketball, calisthenics, relay contests, volley ball, hiking, tennis, and soccer. A portion of the year’s classes were devoted to studying healthful ways ol living with various members of the class reporting on books related to this subject. BOYS’ PHYSICAL EDUCATION Our national government has emphasized the need for a physical fitness program in all our schools and Elizabeth has followed a physical fitness program since the opening day of school in September. In Elizabeth High we have but one major sport, so it is necessary for us to instruct people, who do net engage in basketball, in some form of physical exertion or contact. To accomplish this task there are organized classes in which the following games are played: Soft-ball, baseball, touch football, intramural basketball, volley ball, and the regular physical and body building exercises. This spring we endeavored to add either baseball or soft-ball as a major sport but it is our principal aim to direct each high school boy in some organized physical activity in order that in the years to come he may buiild a stronger citizenry. G. A. A. CLUB The G. A. A. Club is an organization for high school girls who are especially interested in sports. A system has been devised by which the girls record points for keeping health habits. Awards are given to those who have faithfully kept their training rules. Although these awards mean a great deal to the girls, they are not nearly so important as the fact that, in observing the rules and recording the points, the girls have developed better health habits and acquired good posture in many instances. G. A. A. is beneficial to the girls in that it gives them a sense of leadership and fair play in their various activities. Great emphasis is put cn the fact that girls should always be clean and neat, and on the need for developing a pleasing personality. 19 4 8 ■ llTERRAPIN ■MHB T A GAME GUY’S PRAYER Dear God: Help me to be a sport in this little game of life. I don’t ask for any place in the lineup; play me where you need me. I only ask for the stuff to give you a hundred per cent of what I’ve got. If all the hard drives come my way I thank You for the compliment. Help me to remember that You won’t let anything come that You and 1 together can’t handle. And help me to take the bad breaks as part of the game. Help make me thankful for them. “And, God, help me always to play on the square, no matter what the other players do. Help me to come clean. Help me to see that often the best part of the game is helping other guys. Help me to lx? a ‘regular fellow’ with the other players. “Finally, God, if fate seems to uppercut me with both hands and I’m laid up on the shelf in sickness or old age, help me to take that as part of the game also. Help me not to whimper or squeal that the game was a frameup or that I had a raw deal. When in the dusk I get the final bell. I ask for no lying complimentary stones. I’d only like to know that You feel I’ve been a good guy.” —Chaplain’s Digest I LIGHT WEIGHT TEAM Back Row —Manager Jimmy Rodden, Lester Hacker, Kay Ruble, Bobby Eustice, Mr. Murphy, Coach, Robert Kehl, Wayne Schreck.

With the same personnel returning the boys wearing the Orange and Blue were determined to establish themselves as one of the strong teams in Northern Illinois. When the finaal whistle had sounded and the end of the 1947-48 season was at hand; the Elizabeth High School Terrapins had made a very enviable record in Jo Daviess County Basketball. Accomplishments by the hardwood participants were as follows. Elizabeth Won the County Tournament. Elizabeth Defeated Stockton three times. Elizabeth Teams played before numerous capacity crowds. Elizabeth Lost U. S. Grant Conference by one point race. Elizabeth Placed second in Conference Race. Elizabeth Runnerup in District Tourney. Elizabeth Was the best equipped and the best outfitted team in Jo Daviess County thanks to the support of its fans. Elizabeth Won 18 games and lost 8 games. Of the losses, two were by two points and two by one point. Elizabeth Was finally established as the basketball center for Jo Daviess for 1947-48. CHEERLEADERS Joyce Hopkins, Verlys Breed, Janette Wiley, Phyllis Lloyd With pep and zim they lead us through Our yells and cheers, they’re in the groove. Dressed in E. H. S. colors of orange and blue We give them credit for winning the games too. 1 1 9 4 81GRADE BASKETBALI The Elizabeth Grade School further established the city of Elizabeth as the basketball seat of the county by winning the First Annual Joe Daviess County Grade School Tournament which was held in Galena. To further entrench themselves as cage hopefuls for future years they played through a nine game schedule without a defeat. So in this age of juvenile delinquency, of problem children, and unsettled times, the youngsters of the Elizabeth Grade School went through a basketball season undefeated and concluded their schedule by being crowned Jo Daviess County Champions.HEAVY WEIGHT TEAM Second Row Robert Baumgartner, Lester Hacker, Robert Ertmer, Bobby Davey, Marlin Keleher, Mr. Murphy, Coach.

The deep tones of our very large bass horn, the sliding notes of the trombones, the marching rhythm of the drums, and the clash of the cymbals, are some of the sounds which come creeping up the stairs into the class rooms. The Elizabeth School Band, under the direction of lui. Ilatt Starck, is led through marches, classical as well as popular numbers. Under hJs leadership summer concerts have been presented for the public on Wednesday evenings. During the school year a Christmas program was presented and in the spring another entertainment was given by these youn musicians. CHORUS The High School Chorus is directed by Mrs. Starck. Both boys and girls constitute this group. During the year these “songsters” combined with the band produced two musical programs. A speciality of the Christmas Program was the singing and living Christmas Tree. This spring an Operetta “Circus,” was presented by these students of music. Mrs. Starck also has charge of the boys quartette and girls’ sextette and quartette. i ■■■PS 19 4 8 r TTnr t 'irr ffiiiriaMHiiiBiiiimniirnmnin mraBrammnp; 3 .IMBBii!

Many students find their way to the office for counsel regarding their scholastic standings, absentee excuses, study hall decorum, the best college to attend, or just for a chat with Supt. Cockrum. Owen Jones, our faithful janitor, is always on hand, to ring the bell, keep our building clean, help find material for stage scenery or set up additional bleachers to make the Basketball Fans comfortable. Even though Owen has served in this capacity for sixteen years, he still meets us with a smile.

The personnel of the Student Council consists of one representative from each grade in the high school and seventh and eighth grades. One meeting is held each week, with Mr. Cock rum, the sponsor.

Brave little children, Oh! My Gracious! Alas! Our first big problem Was — “W’ho is our adviser?" Until we discovered Miss Berg our faithful guider. Who outside of school has a hobby, And we all know his name is Bobby. We thought of our subjects And found we were all together It didn’t make any difference. Stormy, cloudy, or any kind of weather. :.............. HK- -.. iM 1 9 1 8 TERR A PIN i itmnjMBaBgiMaBgnaiii mu in——B ■ Then we chose our officers, The following will reveal, Dorothy Meyer as President, Elected with appeal. She seemed to need an assistant, So here is what we did, We elected Roger Arnold, The one and only kid. Then we chose Velda for treasurer, To keep our books each day. She has done well, but whether she Likes it we have never heard her say. We elected Marilyn as secretary. We had no doubt you see, She has done well, As good as anyone could be. We felt we needed a representative, And elected Harriet, to keep our class on top, She voices our opinion and helps our class a lot. Our class is very active, bright and peppy too. We have three members in the band. The fourth will soon be there. We gave a school party, There was a “punk-un” too. Cider and cards is all it took, To keep the upper-classmen From their books. Most of the girls are in the chorus, The boys they “love” to sing. Just to think we're popular, Makes our ear drums ring. Wishing you the best of luck From your head to your toes. Now the “class of 51” our history we close. a ...... 1 9 4 8 .TERRAPIN" inaararaugg SOPHOMORE HISTORY In the year of 1946 We twelve “Freshie” started school. The seniors gave our initiation, As then was the rule. Under Mr. Murphy’s guidance We had a picnic, as most classes do. And we had everything to eat From potato chips to stew. Now we are the silly “Sophies,” (And it really sounds that way.) We also are the smallest class, but Good things in small packages, they say. Mr. Murphy is our class advisor, And a jolly fellow is he. For when ever we are low, He fills us with glee. ■MMawwixa 19 18 ' ; cNot only being our class adviser, But coach of basketball is he. And “Murphy’s Boys” are known far and wide, For they won the Tournament, you see. Small packages are full of surprises, And no exception were we. Because of a few, we had no picnic And missed a lot of fun along the lea. Selling at the basketball games, For money, of which we made a lot. But once we locked the ticket office, And almost caused a riot. We now must call the roll, For we’ve told all we can. First in line is Florene, Who is a great airplane fan. Then comes John, class president is he, Glynn our representative, a quiet lass. Then there is Roxy, our redheaded treasurer, And Robert K. the Irish wit of the class. Bobby B. is our basketball star, And in class our clown We cheer for him at all the games, Both in and out of town. Verlys our V. P. and cheerleader. Is often called “Giggaboo.” Lilias is the flirt of the class, (She really wows them too.) Charlis is our secretary, Donna, the Galena fan. Gloria is the homemaker type, And Bobby E. the “Little Gentleman.” This is the story of twelve little “deers,” And our first two years in Elizabeth High, We’ll be back in the fall with many a sigh, To continue our journey through laughs and tears.T E R R A P I N JUNIORS CLASS OF 1949 Listen, Elizabeth High fans And you shall hear Of the pranks and fancies Of many a dear. It was in the year of forty-five That to Elizabeth High School’s door Came twenty-three freshies, loaded with books Armed with little knowledge and thirsting for more. With Mrs. Glenn Arnold as our leader We started our climb up the stairs. She counseled her doubting charges And shouldered their many cares. Initiation time soon came And much to our dismay We had to dress to fit the part But we lived through the day. Now as full fledged students, In other activities we took part. The boys played in the band, And in basketball had a glorious start. Not to be outs tarred by their colleagues In sports, the girls excelled in G. A. A. And thdn in homemaking Became members of F. H. A. mmmbbummbu 19 4 8?i ;......... T E R R A P I N Our first year passed quickly by And we returned as sophomores in the fall That year we had Miss Codings To come to our “beck and call.” Besides our studies, we had our picnics And gave a party on Sadie Hawkin's Day. Many joined the chorus and the boys continued in basketball While the girls gave a play for F. H. A. Soon we became jolly juniors And now we number twenty-three. The two gained as sophomores Were lost again you see Miss Faist, our patient adviser, Is ever our guiding star. She helps us with our troubles And rides in a big blue car. We chose Janet as our president And very efficient she proved to be Myrtle, Virginia, Jeanie, and Rita were also elected To help lead our class of twenty-three. We were ever busy in our activities. Rita and Irvin became co-editors of our “Key” And with their efficient reporters Recorded much current history. We had a picnic at Eagle Point Park All the high school teachers were there. They helped us eat the hot dogs And shared the cold night air. We spent much time getting ready for our play My, but we all were busy. Miss Bevg directed “Almost Eighteen” And we drove her nearly dizzy. Niles, Nolan, Jimmy and Ray were our basketball stars. And brought many a cheer with their brilliant plays. While Janet and Miss Faist selling tickets Were often left in a daze. Our girls were also in athletics And Ruth was chosen President of G. A. A. We had calisthenics, basketball, hikes, picnics And a candle light initiation beautiful and inspiring in every way. Our Junior-Senior Prom this year Came on a lovely day in May. We all had a wonderful time Singing and dancing with hearts so light and gay. 8 This is the story of we twenty-three dears Of our highlights and shadows And laughter mingled with tears Which brings our reminiscing to a close. u.. 19 4 8SENIOR CLASS HISTORY In nineteen hundred and forty-four Our hearts were filled with anxiety galore. We entered the doors of E. H. S. Nineteen green freshmen, not one less. Our class adviser was Miss Flynn She kept our spirits high, and when Initiation rolled around Still nineteen of us were found! School parties for us were just the thing But showers they never failed to bring. Mr. Clikeman, was our superintendent true, And we surely liked his humer too. Seventeen as sophomores did arrive The following year in 'forty-five. This time a little more gracious in step But still just as full of vigor and pep. SMMHMMhhhhbmhi 1 9 4 8 T E R R A P I N Don Clikeman’s place, J. Howard did take It almost made our poor hearts break. But when Mr. Quick, we grew to know, To like his ways, we were not slow. Mrs. Schubert, our home room teacher Was very kind in most any feature To hetr, for our achievements, we give honor For without her it seems we'd have been a goner. Now in the Junior year of high Many great events passed quickly by Play rehearsal was most every night Exciting memories—stage, action, light! In basketball we were third in line And band and chorus, to us were divine. Picnics we enjoyed; parties too. For us grey skies were most always blue. How we did plan for the Junior-Senior prom In this occasion, we weren’t the least bit calm. The sophomores served the delicious meal, Our mothers had fixed with greatest appeal. Now full pledged seniors, fourteen are we, Mary Ruth and Janette are back you see. Mr. A. E. Cockrum we do admire A finer superintendent they couldn’t hire. In basketball, our boys did fine In the tournament games how they did shine I The championship trophy we did win Marlin, Robert and Bobby; they’re our men. Another play we did put on And now the year is almost gone. Pleasant memories of our dear high school Deep in our hearts shall always rule. MOTTO “Preparation Today— Application Tomorrow.

The Senior Class of E. H. S. bequeaths to Mrs. Schubert, our adviser for three years, our sincere gratitude and appreciation for the tireless hours spent in guiding us towards the gates of success. We leave our sincere thanks to Mr. Murphy for his coaching of a splendid basketball team, to Miss Barg for successfully directing and presenting plays, and to Miss Faist for her time spent in selling tickets to all our school functions. To Mr. Cockrum, we give our deep gratitude for helping us over some rough bumps we encountered during our Senior year. Our unending gratitude to all teachers in the past, who have in any way contributed to the fundamentals of our education, were they elementary or high school instructors.

We should like to leave Wayne’s knack of keeping out of trouble to Nolan. Also two waves to add beauty to your hair when it grows out. Marlin’s expression “I like it” goes to Willie W.
