We hope as the race of time is being run, that you will never let the cherished and fond memories recorded in this book he crowded from your mind.

Now if you think she ever had woe Just look through our hook and you'll find it so, That Unit 140 sure needs to go For more do ...... re-mi-fa-sol-la-ti-do. DEDIC ATION We, the class of '53, dedicate our edition of the Hornet to two very de- serving recipients. First, to Mr. Rees- man, who has helped us so much by devoting the biggest share of his time to taking the pictures which appear in this book. As a vote of thanks for all the friendly and tedious labor he has given us, each and every one of us wishes him the best of luck and happiness in the future. We, the class of '53, also wish to dedicate this, the eighth edition of the I-Iornet, to Mrs. Naffziger. During the four years that she has been the office secretary and we have been stu- dents in the High School, she has al- ways willingly rendered her services to the utmost when called upon. Being the fine person that she is we wish her every success. :jg wmv f ,115 ,5g+.Kg:g?g:ga':yay:.3 , I1-3gg:'i,1p1?3?.f,i K K K K K K K V ' - K - ' 'K f 'G'-f'5M,ewzxf!ffK.fKQ15 Administration... xl- i ,nav-' ff, sb, ,gg .1 4- 1:5 N ... ii fi -'L Ka Y! aT 5.

Their chief goal this year was to make money to sponsor the annual Junior-Senior Banquet. To achieve this, they have given their Junior Play, "Seventeenth Summer," under the direction of Miss Keller. They also sold candy at noon and handled the concessions at home games. This year they plan to sponsor the Teachers' Institute Dinner.

They chose fearless little Frank Reeser to lead them through their first year of trials and tribulations in the shoe. Mr. Phillips and Mr. Parrish helped him. The next year they got brave and did odd jobs like checking coats and selling concessions at District Music Contest to collect money. Sue Johann took over the load with the help of Mr. Parrish and Miss Nor- rington. By being good, they got their delegates at large elected for Student Council for both semesters. Well, now, in the third year, Milton Sherman was delegated along! with Mr. Hammond and Miss Douglas to hold the kids down. They were doing outrageous things like being in plays CMen Are Like Streetcarsb, selling concessions at games, and putting on a big Junior and Senior Banquet. After being spanked soundly and sent on to the next level Without any money, they asked Marilyn Adams, Miss Douglas, and Mr. Major to help them put out a yearbook, of all things!! They sold ads, subscrip- tions, plastic rayon towels, and address books. They put out their year- book, and put on a play, and did all these things to graduate in May.

I0 F lunk Day On Monday, September 29, a group of about fifty seniors told their teachers they were going on a vacation. The teachers very willingly agreed with their plans and preparations were made to go for a day to the fabulous Starved Rock. . Everyone was ready and " rarin' " to go at about 6:30 that bright Monday morning. Two buses pulled up a half hour late infront of the high school, but everyone being in a good mood, forgave the drivers and climbed aboard. There were students, lunches, jackets, cameras and more lunches and more students. An hour and a half drive to the "Rock" with laughter and singing was enjoyed by all. Only a few of the "night owls" were dozing: At around 8:30 the buses arrived at the park and in a few seconds all the "eager beavers" were out of the buses and starting out on their own excursions. With a last "Be careful" and "Be back on time" from the advisors there were no seniors in sight. , All the energetic ones saw such sights as "The Devil's Bathtub," "The Devil's Nose," "Lovers' Leap," "The Cave 'of the Winds," "Wishing Well," "Witches Cavern," "Horse Shoe Canyon" and "French Canyon." Those who enjoyed riding more than walking went on a "Boat Excursion." The ones who enjoyed climbing stairs took a trip to the Lodge where sing- ing, playing the piano, shufiie board and ping pong made the time fly. Pictures were taken of the lovely scenery and great landmarks, as well as the famous persons visiting the "Rock." fNamely the other seniors.J Some acted as contortionist and smiled at the birdie beautif fully. Ah, what a collection for the scrapbook. Around 4:30 the buses stood waiting for their weary travelers. On arriving in Eureka all yelled their farewells and goodnights to friends vowing they would never forget this year and Flunk Day.

Miss Clark directed the students in the Annual Christmas Vesper Services and the Spring Concert. The highlight of the year was the production of the operetta "A Waltz Dream" by Strauss. All of the students participated in the County Music Festival at Metamora. In November four girls and two boys were chosen to attend the All-State Activities. In addition to the Boys' and Girls' Choruses, many select groups have worked during the year. A Cappella was the largest of these with 42 voices. These three organizations along with two Girls' Ensembles, a Boys' Ensemble, a Mixed Ensemble and a Madrigal Group Went to contest. A local contest was judged by Mr. Henry Charles who determined the 10 soloists who represented Eureka at the district solo contest. A Girls' Barbershop Double Quartet and a Freshmen Boys Quartet completed the list of special groups who sang during the year. , 'M STUDENT COUNCIL I.

XINGU Xingu was first presented at El Paso on February, 1953, in a county speech festival. The play is about a Thursday afternoon ladies' club which on this particular afternoon has Mrs. Osric Dane, a distinguished novelist, as its honored guest. The subject of "Xingu" is brought up, and each lady tries to pretend that she knows all about the thingg in reality the only one know- ing is Mrs. Fannie Roby, the good, down-to-earth member Who brought up the subject in a time of great need. Shortly after the party begins, Mrs. Roby leaves to attend a previous "appoint- ment" with Mrs. Dane following her out. The ladies look up "Xingu" in the dictionary only to find that it is an obscure river in Brazil. This is climaxed by the maid, who upon being ques- tioned, tells them it is a river and assumes that EVERYONE remembered that from her geog- raphy.

Seventeenth Summer was the three act, Junior play, presented on November 21st and 22nd under the direction of Miss Shirley Keller. The inexperienced love affair of seventeen year old Angie Morrow CConnie No- ecker and Ardith Kauffmanj to a baker's boy, Jack Duluth fBob Lemanl, caused her and her family very much confusion. While her parents, Mrs. Morrow flrma Bowaldj and Mr. Morrow fGene Keidelj, try to straighten things out, her two older sisters, Margaret Clsabelle Sandersonl and Lorraine fMary McCutcheon and Doris Bechtelb present more problems. Kitty Uacquinot Collinsj, a kid sister, gets to feeling slightly left out at times. Between Jane fSherry Rossiterj and Margie fEdith Grusy and Mary Lynn Brownl, they succeed in making life miserable for Angie. The boy friends , Art CGeorge Thornj, Martin fDick Reesman and Bob Greshaml, Tony CJim Frerichsb and Fritz QDick Banerj, keep things moving until the very last curtain.

V , Y QA' J ERV Y if Another 3 R's Learning to read with understanding and appreciation, learning to write and speak clearly and concisely, and learning to make meaningful and accurate calculations are basic fundamentals of the public school curriculum including the high school. Nos- talgicly we refer to these tool subjects as the three R's. In today's schools these areas of learning receive more enlightened emphasis than ever before, and on the whole the teachers know more about presenting these materials meaningfully. However, today's curriculum is also placing increasing emphasis upon other learning experiences which contribute to the fundamental aim of education, that of developing good citizens. A second 3 R's consisting of Responsibility, Respect and Righteousness cannot be ignored. A child can learn to read, write and figure far above the average and still be a low grade citizen. Again it is possible for him to be somewhat short in these areas but if he is well grounded in the more basic concepts of good citizenship he can be happy, make his own living and be an asset to his community and nation. A child must be conditioned to his responsibility as an American Citizen. He must recognize that the world does not owe him a living but only an opportunity for earning a living. He is responsible for providing for himself and his own. He is responsible to make Wide use of the talents Within himself and in return for the rich blessings he has received under our American form of government and from God, he recognizes a debt which a full lifetime of devoted service does not fully repay. Our nation has become great because it was built upon the respect we have for the individual and his Creator. In America the individual is everything. The integrity and inherent rights of the individual are inviolable. In turn, the properly educated individual realizes that respect is a two dimensional characteristic. The good citizen respects other people's rights, public and private property, local, state and national government. He reserves the right to criticize but only from enlightened motives conceived in a climate of the factual foundation, and not from narrow partisan motives. One of our Biblical prophets states that, "righteousness exalteth a nation but a sin is a reproach to any people." It is refreshing and inspiring to have the president of the United States recognize the Divine order of the universe by prefacing his remarks to the Congress of the United States, with a prayer for guidance in the crucial days ahead. National sins are the result of people with warped ethical standards rising to po- sitions of influence without the moral equipment necessary for public responsibility. If those in the public schools today are challenged by today's teachers and backed by the proper home, community and moral influence, to get a well rounded education em- bracing the 6 R's, our nation will continue its role of World leadership. If -we fail sig- nificantly in any of the areas mentioned we will have forfeited our birthright. TILMAN R. SMITH, Supt. Community Unit Dist. 140.

He was instantly killed March 3, 1953, in an automobile accident near his home While on his Way to the Congerville elementary school of which he was principal and teacher. In these days which try men's souls it might be advantageous to take time to reflect upon the life of an average American citizen who by dint of hard Work, unswerving purpose and spurred on by the courage, counsel and co-operation of a devoted mother, became an outstanding example of constant personal improvement against almost insuperable odds. That James Allen had human frailties no one would deny, but his strength of character: his honesty, sobriety, humanity, industry, his respect for his Creator and the dignity of man are most fully appreciated by those Who knew him best-a true measure of man's quality. "Jim" as we knew him, attended a rural school and 'finished the eighth grade at the age of twelve. He lived on a small farm six miles from high school, his father was sick and unable to work, his mother could not drive the car, depression finances would not permit transportation expenses, and there were no school buses. For three years through sunshine and rain, through storm and calm, Jim walked to and from the Con- gerville high school, a total distance of twelve miles a day. Congerville had only a three year high school curriculum so for the fourth year he attended Mackinaw high school, walking to the interurban station three miles away, riding six miles into Mack- inaw, in the evening taking the six o'clock interurban back and then again walking the last three miles. He finished his high school course, and he and his mother made plans that he should 'attend college. He worked for a neighboring farmer for a dollar a day during the summer following his high school graduation whenever he could get away from farm duties at home. The money earned in this Way was used for books. Mrs. Allen did sewing, operated their small farm, cared for her sick husband and accumu- lated limited funds with which to rent a room at Illinois State Normal University. By working early in the morning and late at night for a local grocer and by bringing foodstuff from home each weekend, Jim finished his first year of college. Mrs. Allen had the first of four major operations, and Jim was unable to return to college in Sep- tember. He took the teacher's examinations and received a teaching certificate but was too young, only seventeen, for a school board to take a chanceion him. Jim was able to return to college during the second semester and also during the ensuing summer, completing his second year. That fall he began his teaching career and taught for some years in McLean County rural schools. In September of 1942 he started teaching in Congerville but was called into his Country's service the following November. He later became a radar instructor, that being his position when he was honorably dis- charged from the Army in February, 1945. Mr. Allen then began attendance at Brad- ley University until September of 1945 when he began teaching in the Mackinaw elemen- tary school. Always along with his teaching he took extension and summer courses and was soon able to receive his Bachelor's Degree. In September, 1949, he began his principalship and teaching at the Congerville school using every opportunity to im- prove himself professionally and in community service. He was presently enrolled at Bradley University in an evening class for the final course which would have given him his Master's Degree in June, 1953. There would have been ,many opportunities for James Allen to quit in his strug- gle for self improvement and less hardy souls would have done so. He had four major interests-his mother, his' school, his church and his community. He had reached a place where he and his mother had a comfortable home free from debt and with less foreboding days ahead. Together they had counseled about the problems of the day, how her burdens might be transferred to his shoulders, how the days might become less toilsome and more secure for her diminished physical strength. Each had supreme confidence in and respect for the other. Today in the hour of her great tragedy Mrs. Allen whose very existence was bound up in the success of her son, must face a completely and bewilderingly different future. A widowed mother who has known little but sickness, toil, and tears told me recently, "Probably I ought to thank God that I was permitted to have James Dale for these thirty-two years." Such devotion, such courage and spirit in the hour of deepest trial and upon the threshold of better things in the sunset of life, might help to explain how James Dale Allen was made to possess that indomitable spirit which drove him on to better and better things. There is no such thing as a self-made man but in this case of a mother's supreme effort to help a boy to become his best and a son's sincere desire to fulfill his mother's fondest hopes, we have a story which might be of some inspira- tion when the way before us is rough and our direction uncertain.

It's a big, wide, wonderful world and we give it to you with our blessings. Our fathers gave it to us a generation ago. They told us it would be what we chose to make of it. They made it very plain that an education didn't entitle us to any more of this world than anyone elseg merely that with an education we'd be better equipped to face it, meet its challenges. Our fathers told us we'd stand a better chance with an education, and that we'd get more out of life. It was true then, and it's still true now. And then, as though sensing an unspoken thought, our fathers added another word of caution. "Nor is an education a substitute for hard work," they smiled. "It's just a great help in that work." We offer you the same words as those we received. We offer you the same world, slightly changed, but essentially intact. It's for your hands to improve. " " ,vw CATERPILLAR TRACTAOR' co.
