L Q' 5' F - f :., , - .,.., M Y. Y, A.- Jim 79 9frho Volume XXlV Published by the Senior Class of ELKHART COMMUNITY HIGH SCHOOL ELKHART, ILLINOIS. Qndzratwnfff The class of '49 has chosen Mr. Stumm to be the most honored citizen in our com- munity. Mr. Stumm began teaching in Elkhart in 1936. After 7 years of teaching here, he joined the armed forces in 1943 and served in Africa tor 2 years. He then returned to Elkhart in 1946. We feel that Mr. Stumm is Worthy of the dedication of this ECHO because of all the interest he takes in everything about him. He spent many extra hours teaching the G. 1.'s after the end oi the War. His boys also re- ceive many 'extra' hours of instruction, for he follows each boy's project to its comple- tion. Always Willing to help others and co- operate With everyone-this is Mr. Stumm. We hereby dedicate this ECHO to the highest dignitary in 'Our '1'oWn,' Mr. Stumm. 1 wo William Stumm Jnfmwofwl "The song is ended but the melody lingers on." So it is with our high school dgys. The memories ot the mgny hgppy hours spent in "Our Town" of ECHS will linger with us ds we tgke our plgces gs citizens in tozr communities. And, to help you recgll the pledsdnt events ot this pcrst yedr, We, the clgss of '49, present to you this ECI-IO, "Our Town." Uwz, Kamal When the "young dignitaries" of E. C. H. S. assumed for a time the responsibilities of "Our Town," they retained the group of council members who have so faithfully guided many young groups through the educational courses of E. C. H. S. Of this group, Mr. Durwood Lanterman, is the only charter member of the Elkhart Community High School board, but all have served long enough to understand fully the problems that arise. All, too, realize the responsibilities that come with such positions, and strive to the best of their ability to maintain a school of such high standards that students, faculty and community all appreciate their efforts. The young dignitaries appreciate the guidance of these council members. They thank the board for the chance to publish the Echoette without having to raise extra funds to sponsor this project. They are proud of a Well kept school, the beautiful lawn, and the excellent equipment with which to work.

NINE 6'luu,J!1bfo In September of 1945, twenty-six lively "Small Fries" came to live at E. C. H. S. for the next four years. The first highlight of their high school career was initiation. Electing Marian Burns, Pat Gleason and Phyllis Walsh to carry on the activities of the town, the class, with the help of their sponsor, Mr. Stumn, gave an all-school party which was one of the most outstanding parties of the year. As "Teen Agers" the town chose Clifford Oltmanns, Jackie Baumgardner and John Radtke as their leaders. Miss Margaret Neill, class sponsor, and twenty-three mem- bers of the class enjoyed a lovely spring day at the Art Museum and Forest Park in St. Louis. In September of 1947, twenty-three pupils returned to E. C. H. S. after a short recess to become "Young Voters." With Joe Bushell as president, Joe Ott, vice-president, and Clifford Oltmanns, secretary-treasurer, and Miss Faye Kern, class sponsor, the class held a prom in honor of the seniors, faculty and board members. One of the big events of the year was the three-act play, "If This Be Bliss." Entering their last year as sophisticated "dignitaries," the class had a final enroll- ment of seventeen. Frances Weatherby was chosen as mayor, with Phyllis Walsh head councilor and Phyllis Olson, secretary-treasurer. Members of the class worked faithfully on the "Echoette," which was published bi-monthly, the "ECHO," selling popcorn, candy and "coke," The seniors thank Miss Lucy Giger, class sponsor, who has been very helpful throughout their four years of living at E. C. H. S. iii Ffwlvhwf- I am a master of the Occult Sciences and because of this, I am able to show you the future.

JUNIORS WUDIUZQ- Uvtefmf' Nineteen young voters were on hand to begin their junior year with a "bang," These nineteen high-spirited, young people met with Mr. Grohovsky, their spon- sor, to elect their council for the coming activities. Bill Davis was elected to the honored office of president, Larry Hanner, appointed to assist him as vice-president, and Mary. Tierney, a new acquaintance to our town, acquired the title of secretary and treasurer. The first big job in which everyone of the class participated was the sale of sta- tionery. This resulted in a deposit of S80 to the young voters' treasury. As Christmas neared, the active young voters sold Christmas cards and netted a profit of 35170. A Christmas party and program sponsored by the group was enjoyed by the faculty and students. After the program and the exchange of gifts and cards, refresh- ments of Christmas cookies, candy canes, ani apples were served. One of the most outstanding events was "Mother Does the Talking," a three-act comedy which proved exciting and profitable to the class. As you may have guessed, most of the class funds were to go towards the big event of the year, the junior-senior prom, given by the class in honor of the senior class, faculty and members of the school board.

After school got under way, the class met with its new sponsor, Miss Neill, to elect the class officers. James Ward was elected president: Vernelle Dennison, vice-president, and D0- lores Hinds, secretary-treasurer. At the homecoming the group sold chances on a basket of groceries, sold pop dur- ing the game, and had the shooting gallery. The sophomore class sponsored a Halloween party, and everyone was asked to come masked. Some of the teenagers enrolled in band and in the choruses, and took part in the operetta, "Creatures of Impulse." In addition seven of the boys took part in basketball and baseball.

FRESHMEN 'Small jay," Twenty-one "small fry" gathered at the educational system of the Elkhart com- munity last September. After being initiated, they felt more at ease and began to take school life in their stride. With Miss Bradley as sponsor they elected Wayne Dobey as head commissioner, Jack Dee as his assistant, and Kathleen Walsh as chief counselor. Two of the "small fry" moved to other villages, but two others moved in and took their places. At the homecoming the class sold popcorn, had a fish pond, and told fortunes to make a profit of 552454. These "young fry' ranked highest in selling basketball season tickets. Quite a few of the members joined band and chorus, and several of them took part in the operetta. Another of their achievements was an all-school party given in April. FOURTEEIN 1 lflll I wg ! WJ' N rv! K Lv ' if Illl X IFIEI ' 4 Y D QTL 'La f I Il N xx' ATHLETICS sifli Hrlf 1 ...L First Row: L.

Hahn, Hanner, and Payne have been the regular hurlers for this hustling ball club. Only two of thirteen lettermen will be lost by graduation this year. This means that we should have a good, experienced crew back this fall. The record of wins and losses is given below.

The Redbirds won seventeen' games while dropping ten. In the Williamsville Invitational they captured second, los- ing to Hartsburg-Emden. Elkhart tied with Hartsburg-Emden for second in the Logan- DeWitt Conference after losing the deciding game to Beason on the Beason hardwood. Elkhart finished fourth in the county tournament and was eliminated in the first round of the Lincoln Regional by Green Valley. Highlights of the season were double conference wins over Hartsburg-Emden, besting them here and on their own floor. An eleven point victory over Atlanta was an- other feat the Redbirds accomplished. The field goal average for the season was .391, while the free throw average was .511. Next year's prospects are very bright because only two lettermen were lost by graduation. EIGHTEEN First Row: L.

The selling of advertising, candy, Coca-Cola, popcorn, and greeting cards helped build a fund of approximately S700 for this project. The senior board led in the production of this yearbook. but each member of the junior board contributed articles, or helped in other Ways. TWENTY-EIGHT First Row: M. Miller, P. Olson, E'.

S., is a progressive little community in that respect, for the Echoette is published bi-monthly and is distributed to all the students, faculty, school board, and the homes in Elkhart who have no children in high school. 'There is a mailing list of 45 copies including inter- ested alumni and many school exchanges. The Echoette is a member of the I.S.H.S.P.A., the N.D.P.A. and the N.S.P.A. This year the staff received a rating of "excellent" on the issues of the first semester by the N.S.P.A. The senior staff produced two color' issues - one at Thanksgiving, the other, the Christmas number. The junior class proved able journalists during the four weeks the seniors were busy with their play and published two issues, one, the Easter copy, in color. Miss Lucy Giger and Mr. Joe Grohovsky are sponsors of the paper. TWENTY NINE First Row: C. Parks., M. 'l"ierney, L, Brennan, K. Svenson, F. Neavill, V. Yocum, N, Davis, K. NValsh, N. Van Fossan.

A fast moving musical fantasy en- titled "Creatures of Impuse" was pre- sented March ll. The cast portrayed a group of poor creatures in a little vil- lage in Flanders who were all placed under a spell by the Old Lady. This op- eretta was not given with the idea of making money, but as an entertaining project. All scenery and props were made by the students of the music de- partment. is .. zz 'asv 1 . sifiig 'iff ,E if Y X 5 R 2 'f li.

S. who had organized the "Little Theater" in Our Town gave their first performance of "Guess Again," a farce-comedy in three acts on Friday, April 8, in the Elkhart High School Auditorium. The scene of the play was laid in Edgewater Inn, at small seaside resort in California that was almost bankrupt. The audience was kept in spasms of laughter by the antic of Waldo, the hotel porter who had been bitten by the "actor-bug." Then too, the appearance of two Lord Wiggletons kept the au- dience guessing what the actual out- come of the play would be. The actors cleared about sixty dollars from the production.

J Jia The last meeting of the Homemakers club of "Our Town" was called to order by President Dolores Hinds to review the achievements of the past year. With an enrollment of 28 members, Miss Margaret Neill, club adviser, and Mrs. Hugo Svenson as chapter mother, the club completed a profitable year's work. To help the new members and the freshmen get acquainted, a wiener roast was held, and they were initiated into the club at a formal initiation. To raise funds, mystery packages and homemade candy were sold at the annual homecoming, bringing in 31838. The club sponsored a bake sale which netted 252950. All through the year the club sponsored an ice cream concession, helped serve ban- quets, gave a mother-daughter banquet, and prepared the food for the May luncheon of the Household Science club, thus preparing themselves for a future of homemaking.
