JDJIQLUDIUL To celebrate the "Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Edi- tion," this year's annual staff has assembled a year book containing all the precious memories of this school year, so they will never be forgotten. We have endeavored to produce an E Cl-l O which will keep these memories alive. We of the Class of '50 realize that our lives have just begun, but if the rest of our lives contain as many happy times as We have en- joyed here, We Will be very fortunate citizens of a great community. WO Qndzlcahbn. We of the l95O annual staff, take great pride in dedicating our Silver anniversary edition of the Echo to the first Echo Staff and to the people of this com- munity. Through the co-operation of a very helpful community the school has been able to carry on the publication ofthe annual forthe past twenty-iive years. The community has always taken a great part in all school activities, has backed the classes in all their Worthy projects both with its labor and its money, and We, as seniors, who will soon be graduating, hope that We will always be associated with people like you the rest of our lives. lt is the team Work Within a community that makes outstanding churches, schools and clubs. So, to a great community, We dedicate our l95O Echo. THREE Sclwnl agnwwl, We of the Echo Staff, Wish to give our deepest thanks to our Council. They know their responsibil- ities and fully realize the problems that arise, but at no time have they faltered in keeping our school one of which to be proud. lt is one that the school, faculty and community enjoy because of this group of com- munity Weltare minded individuals who maintain their high ideals of what a good school should be. We truly appreciate the guidance they have given us, and Wish to thank them for their very consid- erate help.

Deters Office Secretary E.C.H.S. Graduate, 1946 FIVE Klan, Jliatnny, September, 1946, found 23 "freshies" entering the huge E. C. H. S. building. The much looked-forward-to event was initiation, which came and passed with no mishaps. Bill Davis was elected president, Larry Han- ner, vice-president, and Karen Svenson, secretary-treasurer. The class had the usual booths at Homecoming, were stage stars in the spring and presented before the school two one-act plays, and also sponsor- ed an April Fool's Day party. They had three members drop permanently from the class while one transferred. In 1947 twenty-four class of '50 students returned only to have one quit and another move to a distant district. They sponsored a card party to earn money to give an all-school Halloween party. At Homecoming all 22 students Were busy with popcorn stand. shooting gallery, booths, and selling chances on a basket of groceries. The CLIMAX of the year was a trip to St. Louis sponsored by Miss M. Neill. As upperclassmen, 19 members came to claim the title of juniors, Bill Davis was elected to guide them through the year With Larry Hanner as vice-president, and Mary C. Tierney, secretary-treasurer. The sale of sta- tionery and Christmas cards swelled the class fund. The group gave an all-school Christmas party. "Mother Does the Talkingf' a three-act play, completed the raising of funds so that they could sponsor the biggest event of the year, the junior- senior prom. Seventeen students returned to E. C. H. S. as Usophisticatedl' seniors. Before long, the enrollment of Jim Robinson evened the group to nine boys and nine girls in the class. The long awaited for event of getting to initiate the freshmen arrived. After this the class began working for booths at Homecoming. They gave an all-school Valentine party, and then to complete the funds for the annual, they sponsored the senior play, "The Brain Storm."

Nineteen juniors returned to the E. C. H. S. settlement in September, 1949. The junior play, "Leave It To Goldie," was their first big venture into the field oil dramatics and finance. This production netted them a profit of 573. Larry Wilham served as president, Dolores Hinds as vice-president, and Walter James Hickey as secretary-treasurer. Several juniors were letter winners in athletics, and some were award Winners in F. F. A. The junior-senior prom was held in the auditorium the evening of May 5. Th theme, "Hitch Your Wagon to a Star," carried out in clever decorations, made the roo unusually attractive. The class was saddened by the death of one of its members, John Pickett, who died from tetanus, November 9, 1949, just before the junior play was to have been given. The class sorely missed "Jack's" ready wit, his fun and laughter. First Row: C. Davis, W. Weidhuner, G. Gieseke, W, Hickey, D. Hinds, L. Wilham, M. Sanders, H. Hall J. Pickett Cdeceasedb.

S. sent a student, Lynn Greer, to the State Conservation School for high school students in the summer of 1945. The next fall, following a suggestion from the State Department of Conservation, the first Jr. Sportsmen's Club was organized, with 16 members, and has been functioning each year since that time. This year the club has a membership of 25 people who are headed by the following officers: Mr. Ritchie, adviser, Larry Hanner, president, Clarence Davis, vice-president, Raymond Mercker, secretary-treasurer, and Larry Wilham, game Warden. Among the activities during the past year, monthly meetings, conservation movies, and contests were held to encourage thinking along lines of conservation. A rifle match was held at the monthly meeting in May. After the smoke cleared away, Raymond Mercker emerged the first place winner, Ford Lanterman second, and James Ward, third. One stride forward made by the club was the collecting of information on how to get a Senior Club organized in the community, so that alumni would have an organiza- tion in which to Work after graduation. As a result of this, there is now a Senior Sports- men's Club of over 200 members, holding monthly meetings at the recreation hall. 'kirir First Row: P. Awe, L. Wilham, C. Davis, L. Hanner, R.

The staff is made up of seniors except for the two issues before the senior play. These, the juniors published and did an exceptionally good job. One of the junior issues was a color issue for Easter. The Echoette issues, of the first semester, received a rating of "good" by the N. S. P. A. of which it is a member.

TWENTY-SEVEN Band The fall of this year brought about several changes in the music department. One was the appearance of a uniformed band. The members started working last year to raise money, by picking up corn and having an ice cream social in order to buy new uniforms. The school board backed the band personnel's efforts by advancing part of the money for red wool coats and caps which the students wore with white trousers. Throughout the year the band members and their mothers Worked to repay this loan which is now three-fourths paid. The crowd voted to enter the district contest at Lincoln where they received a first division rating and were entitled to go to the state contest at Macomb. Here, in competition with 19 bands, they received a fourth division rating. The band has improved and accomplished a great many things for a young band, and they and their instructor are to be commended for their concerts, their march for- mations at games, and their solo work. TWENTY-EIGHT 0 "ON STAGE" "On Stagel' is a story of people, of their beliefs, of their fun, their problems, and their feelings for one another. It is the pitting of good against selfishness, of sincerity against insincerity. All of this takes place in the everyday happenings of the cast and the director of a New York musicale in rehearsal.

CHARLENE PARKS Enthusiastic rooters for the football team THIRTYAONE Senior Class Play THIRTY-TWO Junior Class Play OPERETTA armor 'Zz' The Honor E society was organized in 1938 to encourage students to maintain a high schol- astic average. To qualify for having one's name engraved on the Bohan Scholarship Plaque, a senior must maintain at least a 3.25 average for the first three and one-half years of his high school work. At that time a silver honor E is given to him. At graduation, if this scholastic average has not been dropped below the re- quired figure, the silver pin is exchanged for a gold one which the student may keep. At an assembly held Friday, April 21, Gloria King, Charlene Parks, and Billie Davis were given their silver honor "E,s". Q E' 114' IZLII Activity "E's" were awarded to Larry Hanner, Gloria King, Charlene Parks, Ray- mond Mercker, and Mary C. Tierney at an assembly, April 21. These students have par- ticipated in enough extra-curricular activities to earn 90 or more points throughout their four years of high school training. Points are given for holding offices in clubs, of classes, dramatics, school paper, and yearbook, participating in chorus and band, operettas, or taking part in projects for which no other awards are presented. The "E's', this year have been changed from the felt type suit- able to be worn only on sweaters or sportswear to a neat sterling silver pin that can be worn eith- er as a lapel or scatter pin.

The Echo celebrates its twenty-fifth birthday. Congratulations to all of those who have devoted their time and effort to promulgate the Echo down through the years. May the next twenty-five years be successful and may we all be on hand to celebrate the golden anniversary. Sincerely, THOMAS HANAHAN, E. C. H. S. 1925. iii 1331 Elmdale Avenue A Chicago 40, Illinois. May 10, 1950. Dear Echo Staff: . I don't know exactly what kind of a note you wanted me to write, but I am happy to send you a note for what itls worth. Your letter just arrived, even though it was dated April 30th. I am really glad to think after all these years that good old Elkhart High would like to hear from an old "Gradt', and I do mean old! It certainly has been a pleasure to pick up the ECHO year after year and read about the young people of Elkhart and community as they enter and complete their high school education. It has always been very evident that everyone enjoys the ECHO heartily, and it gives me a great deal of pleasure to know that I served on the staff of that first edition of the ECHO, and to know it has continued uninterrupted for all these years. Sincerely, JOHN BRENNAN, 1926. dk ir ' if The Echo is anticipated, and planned ior, by all classes as soon as they enter the high school as fresh- men. During this year the seniors have earned money ior the Echo in various Ways. They sold popcorn, candy, Coca-Cola at the basketball games and, in- deed, at every conceivable opportunity. Greeting cards are sold the year 'round, and in the latter part ot the second semester, advertising, which is printed in the Echo itself, is sold. These activities, combined with the sales of Echos, approximates 5900, which is used to pay the publication and printing cost of the year book. Although the Echo is usually regarded by every- one as a senior project, the junior board has helped in many Ways, and We thank them for their cooper- ation.
