HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1947
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.
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.
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,
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.
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
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. Gib says "I had to come backg I ran out of chawin terbaccyf'
Ann Yoder, trombonist extraordinary, has taken Tommy Dorsey's
place. Her recent recording, "Song of India," has exceeded all previous
record sales at Robinson's Radio Lab. Hometown girl, you know.
We, the Senior Class of 1947, of the City of Eureka, County of Wood-
ford, State of Illinois, being of sound mind and memory, do hereby make,
publish, and declare this to be our last will and testament, hereby ref-
voking any will or wills heretofore made by us.
First, we order and direct that our Executor hereinafter named, pay
all our just debts and graduation expenses as soon after our decease as
convenient may be.
Second, we bequeath to each member of the Board of Professors
some small token of our affection and hope that it will be taken in the
spirit with which it is given.
Mr. Cable: Another Senior Class that is as efficient, as well-mannered,
as studious, and as co-operative: a class that has as handsome boys and
beautiful girls, as this year's class. A class that will be as likely to suc-
ceed as this one.
Mr. Major: An automatic outline checker.

Monday, September 30, 1946, was the day the Senior Class of 1947
decided to disappear from school and go to Starved Rock State Park.
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.

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF '48
In the fall of '46, the group of students now labeled Juniors started
off a colorful year by electing class officers. 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
"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.

The Girls' Athletic Association has been an active organization in
our school for many years. 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.

The Nautilus is published twice a month by the Eureka Township
High School, and is this year celebrating its twenty-sixth anniversary of
publication. 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-
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.
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
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 other candidates, who served as attendants during the crowning,
were: Seniors, Bob Nauman, Leatrice Reabag Juniors, Barbara Dickinson,
Jim Hewitt, Sophomore, Andy Rinkerg and Freshman, Pat Henry.

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

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.
Part of the money from the Homecoming festivities was used to send
six delegates to Illinois Association of Student Councils which was held
March 28 and 29 in Chicago. The remaining money sponsored an Athletic
Banquet April 28 in the Parish Hall of the Christian Church.

It has adopted the national colors of red and white, and the red rose as its
flower. The total members of the Eureka Chapter number seventy-six.

were planned, which included a Hayrack Party for members and guests,
a Dad and Daughter Party, an All-School Christmas Party, the Birthday
Dessert Luncheon, Hobo Day, and Mother and Daughter Party.

The Future Farmers of America is an organization that covers the
whole United States. It is organized in most schools that teach vocational
agriculture. Only boys who are able to carry a project are eligible to
belong, and they can be members until they are twenty. There are four
degrees of membership-Green Hand, Chapter Farmer, State Farmer and
American Farmer. ,.
The Eureka Chapter of FFA has been quite active this year with
thirty members. The officers for the year 1946-47 were elected as follows:
President, Fritz Knappg vice president, Harold Wettsteing secretary, Lyle
Marting treasurer, Maurice Yordyg reporter, Lewis Zimmerman. The ad-
visor is Mr. Hamer.
During the year the Eureka Chapter has entered and sponsored many
activities. In the fall the group went to the International Livestock Ex-
position in Chicago. The Chapter officers went to the officers' training
school at Benson in September. 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.
"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.

On December 6 and 7 the Class of '48 took their first plunge into
the theatrical world by producing "The Importance of Being Earnest"
by Oscar Wilde. 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
