I f t HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1947 I We are leaving Eureka Township High School for the last time. We leave this time not as underclassmen but as graduuates, no longer seniors for we pass that title on to the class of '48. For our class officers in our last year we elected Bob Hebner for president again, Leatrice Reaba, vice president, Quinn Probasco, treas- urerg and Wilma Kempf, secretary. Our class advisors were Miss Harrod and Mr. Major. We whipped into a whirlwind of events at the start of the year with a float entered in the Pumpkin Festival Parade with which we won a prize, and then the initiation of the meek and mild freshmen. Flunk Day followed shortly, which was a day we had planned for. We went to Starved Rock for the occasion. We awaited patiently the senior play, which was "Heaven Can Wait." As the winding up of all events of the year, the juniors gave us a banquet and last came the baccalaureate and graduation exercises, to make us graduates of Eureka Township High School. 51 COMMENCEMENT AND BACCALAUREATE SERVICES The Baccalaureate Service for the class of 1947 was held on Sunday, May 25, at the Christian Church. At 8:00 p. m. on May 29, Commencement Services took place in the Eureka High School Auditorium. Carl Kreider, Dean and Professor of Economics at Goshen College, Goshen, Indiana, was the speaker. -2 0-A SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY Now two decades after the completion of that man Major's American History Course we of the senior class find ourselves in the following positions, public places, professions, posts, poses, postures, predicaments, Pennsylvania, Peru, Principia, Princeville, and all points West-All aboard! First stop Hebnerville-the greatest little city this side of Cruger. Mayor, postman, sheriff, butcher, baker, candlestick maker,bartender, and sole inhabitant, Bob Hebner. Bob says "This way I have the last word, regardless." Next stop isn't important, it's the people who live here-Rod Heigh- way is doing a wonderful job as city street cleaner. His slogan is "highways neat the Heighway way." Across the tracks live the elite Peggy and Irma Parsons who run. They now hold the world's fastest two man relay record and are now in training for the Sadie Hawkins Day Race. On passing out of town we pass a little gray marker marking the place where Ray Denler buried his history outlines. Pax vobiscum. Third stop-Eureka-boasts many '47 alums. Glenn McKittrick has Worked himself up to "Hook" Frerichs' position at Libby's. In a few years it will be Libby,-McKittrick 8m Libby. Bob Whitman, who manufactures hot air for furnaces, has taken over his Dad's place as "George's little helper." Jim and Pat are married and living in a cozy little nest. Pat, "But Jim, what if the mother eagle comes back?" V - Lucy Darst,Ph. D., M. A., M. S., B. S., B. A., and Doctor of Medicine, says after examining Frances Broaddus, "I can't understand it. According to my diagnosis you've been dead for three years." H. R. Kinson, great surgeon, accredits his knack with a knife or his knick with a razor to his experience as assistant butcher at the Eureka Locker Plant. , Mary Ann Leman keeps herself busy doing her little brothers' and sister's outside reading. Mary says "Two more and they'll all have gradu- ated from High School." Marvin Mason and Bill Klaus have just completed their symphonic arrangement for piccolo and tuba. "Piccolo Mart" and tuba player "Skeeth er" will appear at Carnegie Hall. The best of all go to Carnegie Hall. 121- The former Misses Wilma Kempf, Edna Reeser, Peg Ulrich, Clara Miller, Leatrice Reaba, and Lois Zook are forming the married women's bowling team representing the 5 and 10. Any competent baby sitter or pin setter get in touch with any of the above mentioned. Quinn Probasco is now Secretary of the Treasury of the United States of America. Quinn says 'Tm a self-made man. Look what I did with the Senior Class treasury surplus." Lyle Martin and Stan Zook are applying for patents on their painless eyebrow tweezer and automatic typewriters fyou just talk to 'emJ. Beverly Payne has bought two pair of tweezers and a typewriter. Beverly says the tweezers type beautifully and the typewriters play a tune and peel potatoes while plucking her eyebrows. Bob "The Horn" Nauman has just completed a 52-week stand at Secor's Majestic. Donna Wilson married Howard Smith. Gus Kempf and Fritz Knapp became nationally known when they went over Niagara Falls in a pop bottle. Charleen Middleton just bid goodbye to the first li'l Showalter who has just started in the first grade. Charleen says, "The little darling, I feel sorry for the teachers." Joan Snyder is leading a movement for the disbandment of the Navy. A person can only wait so long - Helen Koch is now first lady. She stayed up all night to be first in the bubble gum line. Debutants Kay Owen, Leanna Garber and Dorothy Keller have recently made their debut at the Woodford Theatre. Mary Wetzbarger and Joanne Wargo finished their latest best seller "Love 'Em and Leave 'Em" or "Read It and Weep." This is the best onion soup recipe we've tried. Gene Crawford is coach at ETHS. He tells his boys "If you wanta shoot, get the ball." Arnola Schaumburg is now a cover girl. She owes her fresh loveliness to the fact that she sleeps with her head toward the North Pole. The magnetic pull forces the blood through her veins in a regular circuit. Gib Wilson has just returned from his three-week sojourn on the moon.

The lingering transportation was supplied by the school bus. The class was accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. Major and Miss Harrod. The enthusiastic Seniors had packed huge lunches, which was a good thing, because many appetites became unmanageable before coming to Starved Rock. When the destination was reached, the bus driver made the suggestion of meeting at the bus at 7:00 p. m. that evening to start home and every- body agreed. The three main objectives of the morning were Lover's Leap, Devil's Nose and French Canyon. The dam and locks were also a center of attraction. Most students spread their lunches picnic style and ate on the ground. A few ate in the school bus. Several ate in grand style at the Lodge. After lunch several people traveled down the river by boat to View some of the many beautiful spots of the park. Some others explored the Bluff, Horseshoe Canyon, and still others followed the river trails. As evening drew near many Seniors headed for the lodge to rest their weary bodies on the luxurious davenports. When 7 o'clock rolled around, there were many tired and sleepy Seniors more than ready to start the journey back. At nine-fifteen the bus unloaded its exhausted gang and almost everybody headed straight home. 31 1 A l Senior Float in Pumpkin Festival Parade.

David Greer, Bob Wargo, Barbara Dickinson, and Jim Hewitt were president, vice president, treas- urer, and secretary, respectively. The treasury was swelled by the diligent efforts of the food com- mittee, which sold hot dogs and candy at the games. They took over the task of seeing that the teachers were well fed during the County Teachers' Association meeting, consequently making some money. "The Importance of Being Earnest," a farce in three acts, was pre- sented December 6 under the direction of Miss Harrod. This together with the annual Junior-Senior Banquet were the main events of the year. We pulled through with a first place in the stunt show in February to increase our prestige. A skating party was held jointly with the sophomores at the Fern- wood Rink in April. The class coasted through the year with the able help given by the advisors, Mr. Reesman and Miss Neuhoif. ...34.. my v.

The object of the league is to stimulate interest in girls' athletics and gymnastics and to standardize and pro- mote ideals of health and sports. The motto of the organization is "I promise to uphold the ideals of the Gir1's Athletic Association, By living so that I may be healthy and strongg By making good sportsmanship a constant factor in my conduct." A point system has been worked out whereby the girls are eligible for awards based on the number of points made during the year. The re- quirements for award winning points are: Passing grades, activity in sports, keeping health rules, improving in posture, and by having a physical examination during the year. -52.- ww Q. lf I X .15 i 7 5 ffl ff X 4 f A I ,r ,ff f.

The staff consists of thirty-five members of the student body who have previously completed a brief course in journalism. One way of earning additional money for the Nautilus this year was by a magazine selling drive, in which the entire student body took part. About 3150 was netted this Way. The Nautilus also sponsored an as- sembly program. Miss Wilkins, the advisor, and some of the editors attended the press conference at Champaign and the paper is a member of Illinois State High School Press Association. ... 55- HOMECOMING ETHS-1947 Homecoming, February 14 and 15, started off with a bang! bang! Everyone seemed to have cap guns to deal with Dunlap in the stunt show, the first event of the homecoming activities. The Sophomore stunt was a short skit on the missing typewriters of ETHS with Dunlap the victim of tlfie cap guns. The Juniors had an all-boy stunt featuring a song and dance trio, and the stunt explained how Billy the Kid met his death. The Seniors met at Allen's Alley to decide upon the question of the evening, "Who is going to win the Eureka-Dunlap game, and by how much will Eureka win ?" Last came the Freshmen, with the stage almost in darkness they performed an operation on a perfect brain. The stunt that took top honors was the J uniors', second place went to the Seniors, and the Sopho- mores and Freshmen followed with third and fourth places respectively. Immediately after the Stunt Show most of the student body moved to the lot west of the high school for a spirited bonfire and snake dance. The cheer leaders led inspiring yells and the large fire offered a very warm atmosphere for the yelling crowd. The Snake Dance, led by the cheer leaders, formed and all through town could be heard "Go Eureka, Beat Dunlap." Next evening came the big game, Eureka vs. Dunlap. Eureka met defeat admirably with a score of 38 to 50. After the game was the dance with the crowning of the king and queen as the highlight of the evening. Darlene Reaba and Ray Jiminez led the procession to the strains of Star Dust to take their seats and re- ceive their crowns from Coach Wallick. Paul Reed's orchestra furnished the music for the dancers.

The student council started its work as middleman of ETHS January 28, 1947, by the election of ofiicers. Prior to the organization a group of interested students, with the help of Mr. Major, drew up a constitution which was accepted by the student body. Two council members were chosen by each class, and two alternates. A member at large and an alternate were also chosen. The council mem- bers chosen were: Seniors, Ann Yoder, H. R. Kinsong Juniors, Winifred James, Alfred Bowald, Sophomores, Mary Chianakas, Floyd Sherryg Freshmen, Jean Bechtel, Paul Leman. The alternates were: Seniors, Lucy Ellen Darst, Bob Hebner: Juniors, Alice Lathrop, Bob Wargog Sophomores, Ann Lathrop, Roger Ulrich, Freshmen, Priscilla Kinson, Maurice Crawford. The member at large was Alice Lathrop and Priscilla Kinson as alternate. Mr. Dowling was chosen by the council as advisor. The first activity the council undertook was Homecoming, which was February 14 and 15. The program included the Stunt Show, Snake Dance and Pep Meeting on Friday, a dance followed the basketball game Satur- day. The highlight of thedance was the crowning of the King and Queen.

The librarians are volunteer workers, whose job is rather thankless, as they must do so many jobs which the students do not appreciate. Among the librarians' duties are collecting fines, seeing that the library is quiet, replacing all books correctly and keeping them in order, seeing that the magazines are signed out by a librarian and never leaving the library unattended. -59..

During the winter the boys played basket- ball with someof the neighboring chapters, and they won the first place trophy in the play day at Gridley. .-62... S .m-rg.-r.x., X X xx X f X SENIOR PLAY "Heaven Can Wait," a com- edy fantasy capably directed by Miss Harrod, was the Hamusin' but confusin"' Sen- ior Play, given April 23, 1947. Joe Pendleton fBob Naumanb, a fighter and flyer, was taken from his earthward plummet- ing plane by Messenger 7013 CRodney Heighwayb. How- ever, after Joe was taken to heaven, it was found that a mistake had been made, for Joe had 60 more years to live. When Mr. Jordan fBob Heb- nerj, who managed affairs in heaven, tried to return Joe, he found his body had been cremated, thus leaving Joe with a spirit but no body. Joe, being very particular, , would not take a body that l was not 'in the pink.' -- He finally entered Jonathan Bob Hebner, Rod Heighway, Bob Nauman FaT'I1SWO1"th,S body, with Julia Farnsworth fLois Zookl as his wife and Tony Abbott CJoanne Wargol as his secretary. He fell in love with Betty Logan CChar1een Middletonj, and also built up Farns- worth's body to enter the ring again, with Max Levene CH. R. Kinsonj as his manager. After many complications, Joe entered K. O. Murdock's, a fighter's, body. When he met Miss Logan, they both felt strangely drawn to each other, as if they had met somewhere before. At the very end of the play, Mr. Jordan, disguised as the janitor, tells Murdock that Joe Pendleton is no more. Other members of the cast were: Mrs. Ames, the housekeeper fKay Owenj, Jonathan Farnsworth's nurse CMary Wetzbargerl, and Susie fEdna Reeserj and Ann fPat Allenj, maids at Farnsworth's. Wilma Kempf and Peggy Ulrich escorted passengers to heaven-bound planes. Marvin Mason played the part of a workman who brought Joe's fighting equipment and the part of the doctor who examined Murdock's body after he had been shot. Passengers for heaven were: Alfred Bowald, Bob War- go, John Klaus, Jim Smellie, Dick Weber, David Greer, Don Brubaker, Ann Yoder, Leatrice Reaba, Joan Snyder, Beverly Payne, aand Clara Miller. Jim Atkins acted the part of Lefty, Murdock's manager, and also the part of the announcer of Murdock's iight as it was heard over the radio. Helen Koch was promptress. The stage crew consisted of: George Adams, Dick Johann, Alfred Bowald, Glenn McKittrick and William Kempf were stage managers. Beverly Payne was property manager. .-64...

Jack Worthing CDavid Greerj and Algernon Moncrieff fMartin Strombergerl were close friends, who had imaginary friends- Ernest and Bunbury respectively. Whenever either Jack or Algernon grew tired of country or city life, they could rely on their friends being deathly sick andrelquiring immediate aid. Whenever the country became boring to Jack, Ernest came to the rescue and when the city became boring to Algernon, Bunbury helped him out. Many ,complications arose through this arrangement. Gwendolen Fairfax CBarbara Wigginsj fell in love with Jack and Cecily Cardew fBarbara Dickinsonj fell in love with Algernon. There was just one catch to this-Algernon and Jack were both pretending to be Ernest at the time, so both girls fell in love with two different boys with the same name and were particularly interested in the name. Miss Prism CKay Kennellj, Cecily's governess, was trying to attract the at- tentions of the rector, Dr. Chasuble fAlfred Bowaldl. In the last act, all of the couples formerly mentioned are in each others arms, While Lady Bracknell, Gwendolen's mother QAlice Lathropj, looks on disapprovingly. Lyle Smith and Bob Wargo were the two aloof and stiff-necked butlers, Merriman and Lane. Miss Harrod was the directress. Other important members of the crew were Lois Wagner, promptressg Jim Smellie and Don Brubaker, stage managersg Shirley Mette, properties, and John Klaus, business manager. -56.- The Junior Play, 1947 " THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST" i I cc IIB ENTIRE PLAY CAST: First row, left to right-Lyle Smith, Dave Greer, Bi1l'lJZI.I'2l Wiggins, Barburzl Dickinson, Martin Strombergcr, Bob Wargro.
