THE CLASS OF '28,
? 3 THE ULMUS E f
3 5 H3 2 2
After a hard day at the ofiice we decided to go to the theater and enjoy ourselves. At
the entrance of the theater there was a peanut wagon and we discovered that the owner of
the wagon was Jolm Mathis, one of the class of '28. It seemed as though he was saving
looney to get his Master's Degree at the U. of I. Approaching to buy our tickets, we saw
that the ticket girl enjoying her gum so much was Genevra Zink. VVe talked to her only
about a minute, but, my goodness, she talked so fast and hard that in a minute's time we
learned quite a hit of news. Genevra told ns that Susanne Smith was now living in Paris and
had announced her engagement to a very wealthy French financier. "But,', Genevra hastened
to add, "she still corresponds with Casey, who finds it rather difficult to read her letters,
since he must use a French dictionary or forget his embarrassment and have Miss Croker
translate them. Miss Croker is still teaching in Ii. C. H. S."
Presenting our tickets to Gail Fmerick, we were shown to our seats hy a elite little blonde
girl in a Dutch uniform. It was Helen Moran. IVe then took notice to see who the brunette
usher was, and it was Kathleen Manock!
As it was a few moments before the performance would commence, I looked through my
opera glasses. Glancing over the audience, I saw a sudden Hash. Looking in the same direc-
tion, I discovered a large, brilliant diamond on the left hand of Isabel IIoyt. I suspected
that the man at her right was her fiance.
The lights were turned off and the Comedy was shown. The place of I.loyd Hamilton
was taken hy Stanton Moore, who has become very famous in the comedy line. As the pic-
ture was very funny someone started to laugh. I thought I recognived that voice. Using my
glasses, as the laughing became more hysterical, I discovered Virginia Miller, who having
forgotten her school teachers, cares, was enjoying herself immensely.
VVe were anxious to see the NVorld News reel, which was next presented. The first pic-
ture showed a familiar aviator. It was then explained that Jolm Ryan was the first man to
fiy around the world in two days.
A large picture of Marie Ekstrand was flashed upon the screen, telling that she is now
considered the most important interior decorator in the world. She is redecorating the VVhite
House and from there she goes to France.
There had been a world typewriting contest which had been held in Berlin, Germany.
Each country sent two of its best typists. As we were shown the results, we beheld Frances
Yerby and Bernice Corbet, making their fingers fairly f'ly. America received first place, and
both of the girls came from E. C. H. S.
A tennis international meet was held in England. The American girl received the title
of championship. How could it be otherwise when Frances Clemmer represented the United
Suddenly I came to the realization that my hand was all wet. I turned to find the cause
and there was Elizabeth Steer sitting beside me, crying as if her heart would break. I asked
what the trouble was, She said that she had married Thomas Miller, and that Pud Fagotte
had written her a letter wanting to see her. Her lmsband had become so enraged that he
packed up his belongings and left. Poor Elizabeth had not seen him for a day! I promised
to help her if I could.
The main picture was then shown. The producer's name was Rolen Searle. The picture
was very good. The two leading parts were taken by Bernice Pierson and Inez Smith. I
felt a tap on my shoulder. I turned around and found Louise Anderson, who said that when
the play t'Betty Lou' was given, a very prominent movie producer was in the audience and
was so very much enthused about the girls' acting, that he promptly gave them a five-year
contract. I asked Louise what she was doing now and she said that she was teaching school.
The best part of the vaudeville which followed was an act by Mary Johnson and Marion
Harper. They were dressed as negroes and their act consisted of singing and dancing. There
was nmch applause and we felt proud to think that they were of the class of '28 of IC. C. H. S.
The show was over. VVe made our way to the door, stopping to buy some more peanuts
from Jolm. After waiting tive minutes, we boarded a street ear. The conductor wore a
green sweater and had red hair. I ought to know him! I stopped beside him to get a better
view and-saw that it was James Foster! I wondered if we would get to our destination safe
and sound, as the car went bounding along. At last we stopped and proceeded to our home.
It had been a pleasant evening, renewing our friendship with the class of '28.

Four years have passed since first we met,
In the halls of Elmwood High.
Four years of hope and frown and fret
How soo11 the days pass by!
As freshmen we were loyal to
Our dear old Elmwood High.
VVe yelled and screamed for our dear team
How fast the days sped by!
Also as sophomores we were true
To the school we loved the best.
How soon we found this next year through,
It fled like all the rest.
At last we met as juniors gay
In the halls of Elmwood High.
lVe had to work instead of play
As the busy days sped by.
And now as seniors we plod along
Through joy and cares and fear.
VVe'll soon be Scattered far and wide
For which we'll shed a tear.
And as we leave our High School days
To join the busy world,
VVL' start in life in our own way
As a flag tlliltyS just unfurled.
So now farewell, dear Elmwood High
Youive done so mneh for each.
Yon've sheltered us in years gone by
Put fame within our reach.
So now goodbye, dear School, goodbye,
VVe leave to you our blessing.
Youfve taught to us that work :md "try,'
VVill keep us from transgrcssing.

High School Curricula ancl Organization
COURSE OF STUDY
The following course of study provides
subjects which will give the pupil a broad,
thorough secondary training in one of
three fields: General Academic, chiefly for
college entranceg Agricultureg Commer-
cial. It is expected that each pupil will
follow one of the above lines and not pres-
ent an unconnected group of subjects for
Itl'lQI'Iltl'lMl'lN'1'S FOR GR .Xlll'.X'l'l0N

and IV are offered provided there are
sutlicient pupils to justify teaching the
course. Some of the half year subjects
named in the above course will be given
dependent upon the same condition. Sew-
ing is given in the sixth, seventh, and
eighth grades, and is elective in the Iligh
School in case of no conflict.
MVSIC AND DIi.XMA'l'It' .KRT
Music is taught by a full time teacher in
both the Grades and High School. Dramatic
.Xrt is also offered the pupils of a part
of the Grades and all the High School.
Ifllmwood Community High School is
fully accredited with the North Central
Association of Secondary Schools and Col-
leges. This means that the school is con-
sidered among those of first rank in the
North Central territory and that its grad-
uates are privileged to enter any college
or university, a. member of the associa-
tion, without examination.
In addition the local high school is ac-
credited with the University of Illinois
and is recognized as a four year high
school by the State Department of Edu-
livery candidate for graduation from
High School is required to present four
units in llnglish, one unit in General
Science, one unit each in Algebra and Ge-
ometry, one-half unit in American His-
tory and one-half unit in Civics. Iflvery
graduate should have two years of Science,
and for the second unit a pupil may choose
Biology, Physics or Chemistry.
In addition to the above, there are indi-
vidual requirements for entrance to certain
lines of study in colleges and universities.
The pupil should plan his work so that
these requirements may be met by the time
of graduation, Pupils should inquire of the
Principal concerning these requirements
and for help in their fulfillment.
Absence blanks properly filled out and
signed by a parent or a guardian should
be given to the Assistant Principal iimne-
diately upon the pupils return to school.
If the absence is excusable, the pupil
is given a permit to re-enter class and to
make up his work. If the absence is not
excusable the pupil is given a permit to
re-enter class designating his absence as
inexcusablc, no privilege to make up his
work, and in such cases a certain percent
is deducted from the absentce's grade.
Until an excuse blank is returned by the
absentee, his absence is reported as inex-
cusable, with a certain percentage deduct-
ed from his gradeg therefore, it is impor-
tant that the parents and pupil alike real-
ize that care and promptness be exercised
in returning these excuse blanks immediate-
ly when the pupil comes back to school.

Our Grade School
llle are very proud of the wo1'k of our Grade School. lVhile our enrollment
is more this year than it has been for several years prior to this. it is yet small, be-
ing only one hundred ninety-eight. This number divided among thc eight grades.
does not burden any teacher, and makes it possible for each pupil to receive in-
dividual attention, if necessary.
Our teachers are trained especially for the work they are doing. lVe a1'e for-
tunate this year to have in each room, teachers that have had experience. Vie
were not foolish enough to think that experience always means success, however, if
all other things are equal, we are quite sure that it is a great asset to a teacher.
The curriculum is very similar to most of the Grade Schools of the state. for
we follow in a large measure the State Course of Study. As in all communities we
have particular problems that can be met better, by local changes. In these in-
stances we institute changes wc think necessary to fit the situation. In addition to
the regular academic studies such as reading, arithmetic, geography, history, orthog-
raphy. physiology. etc., we offer sewing, music and public speaking as a part of
the regular program. ln the first three grades music is given, but no public speaking
is offered until the Fourth Grade. Beginning with this grade we alternate music
and public speaking as a part of the regular program. Sewing is given four days
each week to girls of the three upper grades. alternating between grades six and
seven, and seven and eight. Physical training is included in each teacherys daily
program as a part of the instruction in hygiene.
The Grade School is fortunate in having a Board of Education that is in har-
mony with the progressive movements in education. This Board consists of six
members and a president, who are representative business and professional men of
the community. Three of these men are also members of the Community High
School Board. This interlocking of members is very desirable where the two sys-
tems are as closely related as is the case in Elmwood. ln the management of the
schools. the Board is always considerate and thoughtful in its actions. keeping fore-
most in mind the efficiency of the school.
ln the pages prior to this you have read something of our high school and its
activities. YVe realize that there is much yet to be done in both schools, however
we also think there is much of which we should be justly proud. As our Grade School
functions better, our high school will also become better. An organization that
runs through twelve years of time as the school does, becomes more efficient as cach
cycle of the machine improves its individual part. This improvement I think is
on foot now, and let each patron of the school work with the teachers that we may
send forth boys and girls that will be "realm men and women. Your school is one
of the biggest assets the community has, and no part of it can be neglected with-
out the whole being somewhat injured. Remember that education is most exacting
in its demands. most far-reaching in its influence, most satisfying in its returns.
The greatest service that can be done for the child is to teach him to think for him-
self, judge for himself, do for himself-make him self-reliant. Our job, then, is
to build for this educational ideal in training the children in our care.

"'I'apl Tap I"
Xxvllitt is that?
Tm Miss Crunfs rank and I can see everything that goes on. That "tap, tap" is Miss
Crum beating me with her baton, when someone gets out of time. Miss Crum does hit me
hard sometimes, but I do not mind it, when I think it's for ll. C. H. S.
VVl10 is Miss Crum?
She is our direetress. VVe eouldn't get along without her. XVhen she smiles I forgive
her for all the cruel taps she has given me.
There are only three violinists but they surely do have pep when it comes to playing
their violins. Mary is always laughing whenever anything goes wrong, she always sees the
bright side. Hear that obligato part? 'I'hat's Louise. She's always ready to play something
"different" Virginia ean make that bow of hers step around.
Our trombone player, 'tDannie," especially likes "Heroes of VVar," in which he has a
Tee-tee-tee! That's Ralph and his Clarinet.
Ta-ta-ta! That's Jaek. He never can get his clarinet tuned with Ralplfs.
"Eddie,' comes up from the grades with his flute. He and "Archie" play together and
they never can agree.
Just listen to that noise over there! 'l'hat's i'.Xrel1Ee" and his saxophone. He's always
playing jazz while the others are trying to "tune up."
'I'here's "YVoodie', and his Cornet. He is one of the reasons why I get hit so often.
"'I'ommie,'i the Senior member of our orchestra and also librarian, plays the eornet. hliillyli
comes up from the grades with his eornet.
Boom! Boom! 'I'hat's our big bass drum. Our drummer, although small, surely can
make plenty of noise. This is Gladys' first year and she is doing fine.
The first name of our snare drummer, Pauline, is "Pep." She puts pep into everything
she does, including her clrunnning.
VVait-here comes Elizabeth as eool as a cucumber and late as usual. She's president
and pianist of our orchestra. VVe eouldn't get along without her.
At last they are all tuned and really started, harmony follows diseord-pep-yea, that's
our motto. M. E. II., '30.

with a new Constitution, in which we agreed to read, write and speak Better English,
we accepted twelve Sophomores as members. This increased our membersliip to

E. C. l'l. S. Science Club
The Science Club, a society new to our school, was organized early in the
second semester, at tl1e suggestion of Hr. Mann, the Science teacher. Anyone in-
terested in this subject was allowed to become a member of the Club. Our name,
the E. C. H. S. Science Club, was chosen, a constitution was drawn up, and ae-
cepted by the Club, and the following officers were elected: President, Kathryn
Bowers, Vice-President, Harold Hicks, Secretary, John Mathis, Treasurer, Leland
Simkinsg Librarian, Elizabeth Steer.
The purpose of this Club is to promote among the students a greater interest
in Science, and to help us to have a better understanding- of the world about us, and
of the many little, every-day things which have often puzzled us. The Club meets
every other lVednesday afternoon, and our programs are always interesting. They
usually consist of talks by several members of the Club, on tl1e different phases of
whatever subject we may be studying, and a few experiments are performed. Then
our Question Box is opened and the questions answered. This Question Box is a
means by which the members may submit to the Club any questions which they want
answered, and in this way a great many things have been cleared up for us. Al-
though the Club is new, so far it has been very progressive. G. P., '29.

YVhen we entered school this year there were not as many boys who wanted
to take agriculture as there had been in years before. Mr. Stinson thought it would
he best to join the Agronomy and the Animal Husbandry classes. This would con-
sist of the boys who had had one year of Ag. and the Freshmen boys who wanted
to take it this year.
The Dairy Husbandry class startvcl the year with eight members. Since that
time Cecil Trowbridge has withclrziwn, leaving seven in the- class.
The field trips lmvu been of much interest. The one taken to Peoria was the
outstanding trip. B. P.. i29.

The score was very close, excitement ran high, Elmwood won in the last few seconds
of the game. At this time Elmwood was the only team that had not been defeated
