Peoria Engraving Company Dedication MARY CLARK ARTHUR PHILLIPS We, the class of '54, dedicate our volume of the Hornet to Miss Clark and Mr. Phillips, in appreciation of their constant endeavor to advise us and to make our days at E. I-I. S. memorable. They have stood by us unfalteringly, always willing and eager to give of their time to help make a success of all our undertakings. It is with deepest sincerity that we offer our thanks and wish them a very successful future. Foreword Like birds, we have winged our way through four eventful years and are now ready to start our flight toward new and indi- vidual goals. The highlights of these years of work and fun are retained within these pages, a lasting remembrance of this step to the doors to the future. THOMAS ELBERT WIGGINS EUREKA HIGH SCHOOL BOARD OF EDUCATION 1936 - 1949 PRESIDENT UNIT 140 BOARD OF EDUCATION 1949 - 1954 Few men can cut through the bonds of selfishness to serve their age in a genuinely altruistic manner. To do so takes character of the highest type because our basic urges are ego-centric and the art of working for the common Weal has to be carefully cultivated if it is to iiourish. Thomas Elbert Wiggins dedicated his life to enriching the lives of others. For this cause he Was Willing to lay down his life and Work far into the night long after lesser men would have laid down the burden. Mr. Wiggins had an unusual capacity for seeing through surface elegance and ap- praising the true value of ideas and things. He recognized long time values and was willing to devote his energies to the attainment of such. He was a true friend of lib- eral education, of teaching and of people. His consuming desire as president of the board of education of Unit District 140 Was that every decision of the board Was in line with the philosophy, "What is best for all the boys and girls in Unit District 140 ?" T. E. Wiggins Would not be disturbed by the trifling things of life. He held positions of high honor and distinction because station in life did not affect his true sense of humility or his true sense of values. He could smile in defeat and from the rubble and splinters of blasted hopes find the material for building better mansions. Regardless of the burden he carried in his heart he did not complain or in any Way expect or accept sympathy. He served his age in many different Ways. He was an outstanding teacher who could re-activate the great beauties and lessons of literature and kindle an enthusiasm among his students for the hidden treasures of man's best recorded thoughts. He could lead groups of people in thinking through important problems and arrive at sound de- cisions. He had the capacity for true friendship. In spite of his great capacity for leadership in many causes of importance his ever abiding interest was that of his family. He brought patience, kindness and forbearance into his household in unusual proportions and even in his last hours Was solicitous lest his illness become a burden to his loved ones. Thomas Elbert Wiggins had an abiding faith in God and the things of the Spirit. He believed that "All things Work together for good to those Who love God" and he was ready to contribute his talent to the Work of the "kingdom not made with hands." Even in the face of declining physical strength he accepted great responsibilities in the Work of the local church. He would never have been brought to consider himself a great man. The things he did were not spectacular. He did not accumulate material Wealth, world acclaim or political power. It would have been entirely foreign to Mr. Wiggins' nature to have desired to do so. But to know him well was to love him and the fact that he walks no more among us will bring with increasing poignancy the realization that a great and good man has taken his departureg but "his good Works do follow him."

SECOND ROW - Superintendent Smith, Mr. Roy Kuntz, Mr. Kenneth Cross, Mr. Earl Reel. Piloting the destinies of Unit District 140 is the heavy burden of the members of the School Board. During the five years of organization of the District Unit, they have worked tirelessly to coordinate the needs of the various schools with the desires of the public. In these days of high taxes and expanding population, it is no mean task, and we feel fortunate to have such capable individuals at the helm. IN MEMORIAM We sincerely mourn the loss of Mr. T. E. Wiggins, President of the School Board of Unit District 140, who died March 2, 1954. It is the loss not only of a devoted and able worker, but also of a true friend to young and old alike.

The Educational Advisory Council of Unit District 140 consists of a group of inter- ested citizens from all parts of the district who work with the Board of Education and the school staff. The primary aims of this organization are to promote a better un- derstanding of the school program, to seek ways of improving the present system, and to exchange ideas dealing with education in the community. This group can certainly be commended for its interest and public relations work. Executives TILMAN R.

At the beginning of the year they were busy getting ad- justed and acquainted, and later were surprised by the Seniors with an initiatio11 ceremony. In a class election, they chose Melvin Geiger to act as President. Being a very bright class, they realized that money-making oppor- tunities were available for those who would go out and get them. Thus, during their Sophomore year, under the supervision of George Thorn, they served a dinner to the teachers at Teachers' Institute and picked up corn. The class also won first place with their stunt during Home- coming. They continued their quest for learning-and money-during their Junior year and picked Irma Bowald to aid them. Jobs such as noon candy sales, concessions at home games, another dinner served to the teachers, the Junior play, and the Junior-Senior Banquet-Prom all added to their funds and experience. At this time the class realized how for- tunate they were to have such able advisors as Miss Clark and Mr. Phillips. After three months of much deserved rest, the class of '54 again en- tered the doors of Eureka High. This time, as Seniors, they made Luana Crawford president and devised plans for a yearbook, the Senior play, and graduation. They were kept very busy, but somehow they found time to surprise everyone by skipping school, one nice day, and going to Starved Rock. In the spring the class of '54 parted. Each member went his separate way, taking with him these memories and experiences in education, which will long influence his life. Awards Citizenship D. A. R. RICHARD REESMAN IRMA BOWALD F. F. A. 119531 Whitman 119535 WARREN WHITE, MR. THOMAS EDWARDS, ROBERT GRESHAM TOM KLAUS Senior Specialties e w e i num if iv ILL T Z L HlSt0RY 'Prophecy Ml, Class Will We, the members of the Senior class of '54 of Eureka High School, being of sound mind and body, and being of superior knowledge, do hereby publicly ordain and es- tablish this to be our last will and testament, and do solemnly proclaim any resem- blance of this manuscript to a legal document of similar purpose to be entirely and purely intentional. FIRST: We bequeath to our beloved Alma Mater memoirs of days well spent, when our tinkling laughter and soft footfalls drifted unpretentiously down the hallowed halls of E. H. S. SECOND: We direct that the following be granted to the custodians of our edu- cation, the faculty: Mr. Cable-a special clock whose hands will obligingly stay at 8:29 a. m. until the very last student is in the building, so that his valuable time won't be wasted filling out tardy slips. Mrs. Naffziger-a scooter especially fitted with square wheels to assist her in as- scending and descending the stairs on her many errands. Mr. Saxton-a Stradivarius violin, so that he may have nothing to do after classes but fiddle his time away. Mr. Major-a gun with which to fight the "Battle of the Bulge." Mr. Hammond-an attachment for the mimeographing machine that plays the "Missouri Waltz" as the little handle is being turned. Miss Jenkins-all the left-over mixtures from the chemistry lab to be used as a footbath. This is beneficial in removing the athlete's foot! Mr. Reesman-one large magnet to make General Science "attractive" to all Freshmen. Mr. Wallick-a box of twenty-five cent cigars to distribute While announcing the thirty-nine F. H. A. girl addition to his family. Mr. Emory-one group of students with the unique ability to draw and saw in rhythm to the accompaniment of the chorus classes above. Mrs. Sullivan--a year's supply of food capsules to lighten kitchen toil. Mr. Phillips-we leave, assuring a quiet sixth hour study hall! Miss Clark-a mousetrap that plays a catchy tune when it has caught its prey. Miss Douglas-a bottle of ammonia to keep up her spirits at the games. Miss Vitzhum-"something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue," and something "real George!" Miss Keller--a Reader's Digest to balance the podium and something "real Howard!" Mr. Thommen-the spirit of Henry Hornet to make next year's basketball team an- other real stinger. George-our textbooks to be used as fuel, so that all following classes may be kept warm, and the coal supply may be conserved. Bert--a box of anti-slumber pills to keep him awake during late parties. THIRD: We, the class of '54, unselfishly give a few of our many talents and possessions to the members of the Junior class as follows: Dick Baner leaves a booth in the lower hall to be run in his absence by Shirley Bradle. The sign on the booth reads, "History Projects-Cheap." Virginia Karl and Nancy Herschel place their little brothers, Lee and Bobby, in the care of Donna Singleton and Dorothy Kuebler, so that they will not miss any "sisterly advice." Kenny Tabor leaves his ability to "grin and share it" to Ruth Ales. Class Will fcont. Carol Blunier leaves her job at Crawford's to Mary Watkins. You've got to keep jerking those sodas, Mary! Margaret Taylor lends Janet Eastman a foot-of height, that is! To Tom Sherman, Lois Reeser leaves her talent for getting a mid-year "shiner." Jerry Lyons leaves his boots to Judy Bittner. You might get Jerry, too, if he can't get out of them! Marjorie and Marie Selvey leave their book entitled Two Heads Are Better Than One to Marden Zook. Jim Frerichs wills his long, lean and lanky frame to Ronald Fryrear. This is a frame-up! Connie Noecker leaves the Crosley to a well-suited Junior, Bill Traver. Says Con- nie, "I'm just too tall!" Wayne Whittington sadly bequeaths his best pair of Levis to Bill Hamilton, and says, "Wear them well." Janet Pease wills her old shoes to Don Moreland, so that he may further his ex- periments with pink and green dyes. It has been scientifically proven that a porous head accumulates more knowledge, so Jane Heiken feels that she is quite generous in leaving her head with the many holes to Darlene Neuhauser. Dick Reesman leaves his never-ending flow of wit to Ina Mae Owen, with the hope gliat she will carry on the old tradition of being "Champion Wise-cracker in the Senior ass. Luana Crawford leaves her last name to Sharon Janssen. Turnabout's fair play. Bonnie Miller leaves her ability to calculate figures to Ronald Hammond. This should be of great service to you, Ronald! Marlene Hartter is the lucky recipient of Minnie Schlupp's dramatic manner. Min- nie wondered, "To give up my drama, or not to give up my drama-that is the question." Gladys Zimmerman leaves her excess supply of chewing gum to Ken Burrel. Gladys has turned to "chewing the fat" instead. In other words, gum chewing interferes with the fine art of conversation. Ronnie Wabel leaves his football suit to his little brother. Says Ronnie, "You might have to grow into it, Larry!" Mary Crider wills her large stack of science-fiction comic books to Billy Dildine and Frank Myers. Caroll Zimmerman wills her ability to get kicked out of girls' gym class to Russell Stoller. This particular ability shouldn't be too hard to acquire! 1 Margie Miller leaves her year-round sun tan to Bonnie Noll. Marg well remembers the day when her hide was tanned for good! Bill Romersberger leaves his chair in band to Walter Lott, on the condition that Walt says every day, "Bill Romersberger sat here." Irma Bowald leaves her knack for taking three weeks off from school and for be- ing able to do schoolwork at the same time to Dick Woosley. Edith Grusy leaves her cherished bottle of Quickie Hair Dye Cshade redl to Dar- rell Eymann. Says Edie, "I never got the nerve." Dick Payne leaves his class ring in the custody of-guess who? Ardith Kauffman and Norma Gerrish bestow their place in line at the mirror upon Evelyn Dubree and Cornelle Sides. To the whole Junior class, we advise keeping the lines full if there is to be any hope at all of equaling the beauty passing out with the class of '54. Class Will fcont. Willis Wettstein leaves his report card to Betsy Roehm. There might be room for improvement here! Dorothy Sandstrom wills her job on the cutters in the factory to Frank Woertz. Dorothy explain that this is one place where you can really be a cut-up! George Thorn leaves his long years of study at the piano and his own rendition of the Grand Canyon Suite to Barbara Scharp. What about the sour notes? Mary McCutcheon leaves her ability to get to first hour English class just before the last bell rings to Douglas Neaveill. She says all you need is a fast jalopy, enough energy to leap the stairs three at a time, a green jacket and no breakfast. Bob Gresham leaves his ability to keep cool and calm during a political discussion to Bob Bishop. You just have to be calm, be cool, and be collected Cwith apologies to the cheerleadersj. , Mary Lynn Brown gladly leaves her many allergies to Judy Geiger. Says Mary Lynn, "I've got more scratches than a box of matches." Ernest Knecht wills one-half of his mustache to Larry Stalter and the other half to 'Wayne Carr. To Doris Denier goes Janice Ulrich's special talent of spraining her ankle just before gym class and recovering in forty minutes. Verne Bachman and Glenn Wettstein leave their ten easy lessons on the Art of Fluent Speaking to Diane Steinberg. Roma Bartlow leaves the natural bleached streak in her hair to Rosie Martinez. Striking combination! Doris Bechtel leaves her jar of freckle cream to Ben Brubaker. Says Doris, "It makes the cutest freckles." Madolyn Tanner leaves two big jugs of aged apple cider to drink before every his- tory test to Robert Smith. It's supposed to make the test perfectly painless. Sorry we can't guarantee that the tests will be painstakingly perfect! Wilma Wettstein wills her cheery greeting to be used particularly on gloomy days to Donald Bauman. Melvin Geiger leaves his "terrific television talent" to Wendell Litwiller. Jacquinot Collins leaves her good common "horse sense" to Rita Krumholz. Jane Hartter and Ruby Herberger leave their ability to study while typing an assign- ment in office practice to Shirley Gibson and Peggy Schumm. Gene Keidel leaves the privilege of running errands for Miss Keller during home- room, study and eight other periods of the day to Tom Peterson. Barbara Roth leaves Robert Schieber knowledge of a short-cut to Washburn. Don Mason Wills his fishing lines and tackle with which he successfully "caught" a Freshman girl to Donald Whitmer. Mary Darst leaves her girlish giggle to Franklin Gerber. Evelyn Crump leaves a book called VVhat Every Senior Should Know to sister Wanda. Carolyn Purdy leaves her term paper on Angus cattle to Pearl Householter and Lauretta Turner. You'd have to be in the moo--d for this one! Bob Leman leaves his famous nickname to Rozanna McGinnis. Dorothy Imhoff bequeaths her repertoire of jokes and tricks, which she has ac- cumulated throughout the years, and a feather to Irvin Woeliie and Pat Van Scyoc. The feather is to be used only in case no one laughs! Nolan Meyer leaves his prize locker to Barbara Willis. It's right by the history room. Due to Sam's deep regret there are no Hohulins in the Junior class, he has decided not to leave. In Witness Whereof, in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and fifty- four, we have hereunto afiixed our seal. Class Prophecy Being endowed by nature with a considerable curiosity, and being filled with four years of excellent and sober counselling, we resolved at the earliest opportunity to ob- serve and seriously reflect upon the consequences of those aforementioned four years of counsel and diligence on the part of the illustrious members of the class of '54. By very good fortune, we learned that a member of this class had invented the first in a series of time machines, and ignoring the importunities of our betters, we persevered in our desire to tempt Providence and take "Crider's Crazy Cruise" into the future. It is impossible to express the astonishment we felt on this truly prophetic trip, and the following observations, to the best of our belief and memory, are a true re- port of the class of '54 twenty years hence: A crowd is gathering around the White House chanting, "Long Live President Irma!" It is said that Miss Bowald is the first lady to run for President, since none of the fairer sex has ever reached the age of thirty-five up to now. Dick Baner and George Thorn have gone far in the music world-in fact, too far. George grinds the organ while Dick rhythmically grabs for pennies. Carolyn Purdy has a studio in Peoria. Her sign on the window reads, "Premium Prices at Purdy's Painting Patio." After years and years of experimentation, Dick Reesman has found a magic potion to lasting youth. What is this wonderful potion? Explains Dick, "Goo." Roma Bartlow, Lois Reeser and Madolyn Tanner are chief guides at Tanner's Or- chards. Their famous tour is called, "Scenic Cider Sights." Gene Keidel has just joined the Toni troup. With his curly hair, he's a natural. Doris Bechtel is still President of F. H. A.-Feeble Housewives of America, that is. Mary McCutcheon owns a taxi service. Says Mary, in confidence to her car, 'Tm walking behind you." Willis Wettstein has become a partner in a great manufacturing firm. The labels on the little cans now read, "Libby, McNeiland Lippyf' Giddyup and whoa. There went Jacquinotl Miss Collins has gained fame as the new queen of the cowgirls. Evelyn Crump is now Mrs. Evelyn Tea. Five little "crumpets" keep her plenty busy. Edith Grusy is a bug exterminator at Schumacher's Jewelry Store. She takes care of the ticks. With eyes intent and fingers flying, Margaret Taylor is frantically working several hundred levers on a mechanical brain. Says Maggie, "This brain is a pain! I could get the answer faster myself." One illustrious boy is "Knecthed" with an important business firm, and is working "Ernestly" to get ahead. The f'Miller Sisters," Bonnie and Margie, can be heard and seen on the Arthur God- frey Shows. They have been with Mr. "G" for seven years, and recently won an award for their unusual ability to retain their humility. Monsieur Nolan Meyer has won World acclaim for his "cur-cut," featured in his exclusive universal salon. Class Prophecy fCont. Ardith Kauffman is writing an autobiographical sequel to the Mother Goose rhyme, "Old Mother Hubbard." Commenting on her book, Ardith says, "Times certainly have changed." Janice Ulrich and Gladys Zimmerman are chief hash-slingers and bottle-Washers at Blunier's Beanery. They're dishing out a lot of corn. Luana Crawford has just persuaded hubby Ronnie to go into the Janssen Bathing Suit Business so they can swim happily through life together. One of the class members has become the star of a great soap opera named, "Darest I-Ie Marry Darst?" Sam Hohulin is chef at the Goodiield Home for Leftover Sisters." His favorite dish is hen's stew for the stewing hens. Virginia Karl at last has a job at the Metropolitan. She cleans the rotten eggs off the curtains! Ronnie Wabel, Glenn Wettstein, and Verne Bachman are circus flea trainers. Say the three, "we're just itching for fame." As secretary to a large pillow manufacturing firm, Norma Gerrish has certainly landed a soft job. Barbara Roth is a well known reporter for Buyers' Guide. She claims you can find anything from eggs to nickel at Roth's.! ' Dorothy Imhoff's latest book, a sequel to The Egg and I, Me and the Chickens, is selling very "cheep." Says Dot, "It's strictly for the birds." Geiger's Counter has become the favorite eating place of many. His specialty is uranium herbs. Nancy Herschel is manicurist at the Herschel Manufacturing Company. She files the nails. Dick Payne and Jim Frerichs are now modeling bathing suits. Jim always said that he'd got the job by "Hook" or by crook. Caroll Zimmerman can be seen daily in the Woodford County Journal in a comic strip entitled "Zippo Zimmerman, the Greatest Magician." Connie Noecker has opened a studio near Bradley University known as "Brook's Ballet Bar for Budding Ballerinasf' Her nurse's training certainly comes in handy at at times. Having acquired the title, "World's Champion Flagpole Sitter," Janet Pease has finally realized her ambition to be on top. Wilma Wettstein is still engaged to Les. Says Wilma, "This is an important step in my life, and I don't want to rush into it." Mary Lynn Brown and Bob Gresham are coaching the Donkey Baseball Team. It's strictly democratic. Jane Hartter is working in the Walt Disney Production of "Alice in Wonderland." Her role is that of the Mad Hartter. To get away from his many lady admirers, Bob Leman picked the coldest spot on the map to do his crooning. He's still sending them, though. Everywhere in the Arc- tic people are sighing, "Burrrrrr." Class Prophecy fCont. Margery and Marie Selvey are posing for advertisements of Double Bubble Gum. Say the girls, 'How did we happen to get stuck in this business ?" "Bubbles O'Lyons" is now appearing nightly in Secor Summer Stock. Don Mason and Wayne Whittington are now traveling with the French Foreign Legion. When last seen they were having a gay time in gay Paree. Jane has married the last of the Mohicans. Now there are no mo-Heiken. A famous personality in the Woodford County Farm Journal is Ken Tabor, who poses for the tooth paste ads. His motto-"keep smiling." Bill has invented a new sandwich which he calls a Romer's-Burger. Ruby, how- ever, claims that Her-Burger is better. Minnie Schlupp is the Vice-President in charge of the Schlupp's Finer Soups Com- pany. All the consumer has to do is open the can and shl-l-I-o-o-pp!!! Dorothy Sandstrom is Business Manager for Roszells. She has just made the head- lines in the Nautilus for submitting a twenty dollar ad for the 1974 yearbook. Upon our safe return, We gave sober thought to the above accounting and did note with pleasure that the four years of application and industry had not fallen upon wasted ground. The class can be commended for its superior intelligence, lack of conceits, temperance, moderation, and undertakings of a nature above the common!!! 95 Baby Pictures 1. V. Karl, 2. A. Kauffman, 3. N.

The theme chosen by the Juniors was Mardi Gras, and the decorations all centered around this theme. Members of the faculty, the school board, and the janitors, as well as the Senior class were guests at the festivities, and Sophomores, dressed in keeping with the theme, served the meal. Immediately following the Banquet, a Prom was held in the gym- nasium with music provided by Bob Barron's orchestra. Reigning over the banquet and dance were members of royalty chosen from the Junior and Senior classes. Baccalaureate The Baccalaureate Service for the graduating class was held in the Eureka Christian Church, Sunday evening, May 23, 1954, at seven-thirty o'clock. Music was furnished by the high school A Capella choir, and the Baccalaureate address was given by the Rev. John W. Swearingin. Commencement The Commencement Exercises for the graduating class were held in the Davenport School gymnasium on Friday evening, May 28, 1954, at eight o'clock. The class of '54 set a precedent and voted to present a student arranged program with music and speeches given by the members of the Senior class.
