N A i W x 1 1 I 1 .fXfM1f?.l7,2p,fKfm, Farmington Community High School An election held on December 20, 1924, determined the location for the new Community High School. Early the next spring sod was broken, the foundation started and in June the cornerstone was laid. In the following January 179 students occupied the brick structure. The enrollment has increased so that now there are 344 students making use of the well- equipped laboratories, the adequate classrooms, and the modern kitchens. We are proud of the building and appreciative of all the opportunities it has given us. 1 I 7 , 1 1 " 2""" ' ' 1 r,f'5 x . Q r' 4' VOYAGEUR1940 DEDICATION , We, the members of the class of 1940, dedicate our yearbook to Mr. James Van Winkle, who was one of our class advisers when we began our high school careers as Freshmen. Mr. Van Winkle so ably helped us on our way that we feel we owe to him a debt which we can never repay. His efforts to keep the school morale highhave been untiring. "Van" has always been ready to give 'advice to students on any individual problems which perplex them. We all Wish to extend our sincerest thanks to him. , .c e Editor-in-chief Business Manager ....

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY President ......... ...... P ete Fenoglio Vice-President ..............,.......... Frank Kauzlarich SecretaryfTre,asurer ....................... Weldon Tracy Advisers: Miss Wiley, Miss Clinch, Miss Youngblood and Mr. Grebe -In the early fall of '36 when the F. C. H. S. Studios opened for the school session, a new group of young actors gathered together on the stage of Education. This group constituted the graduating class of '40, We were allowed to enroll as "extras" only, but soon we were to be given the chance to develop our acting ability. With Robert Gentle, Roger Clayton, and Dorothy Palley presiding, Miss Youngblood and Mr. Van Winkle directing, we began our careers. Our first social activity was an exciting Christmas Party which was en- joyed very much. Then Christmas vacation came to temporarily relieve us of our duties. On returning to location we found ourselves confronted by the dreaded Semester Exams. Gradually we became more accustomed to our en- vironment and by the term's end we were rapidly improving our acting in the Great 'Play of Education. When we faced the cameras the following year, the cast was changed and we were given new parts as "bit-players". That feeling of inferiority, which was so depressing as extras, was now gone. We were proud of our promotion but, still, we knew there was much room for advancment. We con- tinued to work and study, trying hard to gain a better knowledge of things about us. We also entertained our fellow students and parents with an exciting circus, a dance, and a short play. I 1938-39 came to find us playing our new roles as "stand-ins." During this term we presented the comedy "Ohl What A Night" which was a great dramatic success. Our lzoys also took the spotlight in both football and basketball. The most impressive event of the term, the Junior- Senior Prom, resulted in a very pleasant evening for all our guests and proved our ability to entertain the dignified Seniors. The approach of the '39-'40 session was watched with growing interest for it was then that we became "Stars" in the Play of Education. Weare proud to say that we have filled many leading roles with a very high degree of success. The Senior Dance was considered one of the most successful dances the school has ever known. When the Juniors invited us to attend the Dinner dance on April 12 we gladly accepted, and enjoyed the pleasant evening of entertainment consisting of a dinner, speeches, music, and dancing. Another highlight of the term, the Senior Play, under the direction of Miss Wiley, again proved our super-colossal acting ability. During our four years of High Schcol Education we have acquired a vast store of knowledge which will always be of extreme value to us. In return for our efforts, we each shall receive a neatly folded paper signifying the com! pletion of a High School course. We extend sincere thanks to our parents and to our teachers for giving us this opportunity in life which is rapidly becoming more and more necessary for future success. No matter where our separate pathways in the world may lead us, we will always cherish the happy memories of our experiences in the 'good old F. C. H. S. Studios. :',. -' '- ' 1.

Troxel Maurine Youngblood i ' "': eff: ie 2 ' -'H ." . 'lv ,Sir 'Q we . as CLASS PROPHECY '40 Four years ago I obtained a position with the movie studio F. C. H. S. This helped me to fultul my greatest ambition, to travel in search of talent for a studio. As a beginning 1 decloeu to ILOK up some of this famous studios old stars. I left Farmington one bright sunshiny morning and headed west. I stopped for some gas in Hannioal, Ivrissouri, and who should fill 'er up but Edwin Harrington. He said he was getting along fine. he had his own oil station and was making enough to support his wife, Betty Chapman Harrington, and four children. he also pointed out. Archie Steels place of business, which was a corner drug store. Archie says he got this idea when he worked for Mr. Jackson in Farmington. Betty Cunninghan, his old flame, is there with him. I always knew she was a good in- fluence. Another of my former classmates, Marie Wright, lives in Hannibal. She has com- pleted her nurses training and now takes care of children while their parents explore Tom bawyers Cave. She says she likes this type of work and the tips are fair. I resumed my journey and this time I was in Kansas teiore I met anybody from home. Walter Blessing has a farm there and is trying to discover some way of tying his land down so it wont blow away. I admire him for his grit, and I don't mean "sand." I continued my journey by airplane to Salt Lake City, Utah. On the way I picked up a newspaper and began, to read. I turned first to the sport page. There I read Merrill Dieken's article. "Dieken Speaking." In this he stated that Raymond Barber and Robert Anderson are still playing football and have more than a fair chance to go to the Rose Bowl. In this same article Dieken predicted that Frank Myers would beat the socks off Joe Louis. More power to him. Then I turned to the comics and read Johnny Moletti's strip, "And So They Were Never Married. ' Don't quote me on this, but I heard he gets all his ideas from past experiences. In the society news I discovered that Gracie Sutton and Doyle Fayhee threw a big partv for the Duchess of Kent, the former Dorothy Rich. Right below this article I read an item saying Roger Clayton and Margaret Green- well are now happily married and have twin girls. lTwins .must run in the familyl. It is rather tiresome to read a paper while riding in an airplane, so I decided to look out of the window. Lo and behold, there directly to the right of me was a large flat building with smaller ones all around it. A sign on the roof flashed "Norma Snvder' School of the Air, Enroll now while the fee is low." And in smaller letters "Male enrollees preferred." And I thought she would marry Bob! Upon arriving at Salt Lake City, I took rooms at a leading hotel, and there, to my great surprise, was Weldon Tracy, whose orchestra has been fea'ui-ed at the largest hotels all over the United States. He is planning to go abroad next summer. Not bad. His vocalists are Emcdene Foose and Clyde Williamson. For an added attraction he has Ann Vignali and Pete Vallosio in their latest dance craze, "The Tango Tapioca." Cecil Lockwood plays the drums in Tracy's band and you should see him get hot. Robert Jacobus plays a trombone and is really every bit as good as Tommy Dorsey. Chuck McCord has always had such a love for the "females" that he just couldn't limit himself to one wife. So as a result he has become a Mormon and now has twentyf nine wives and children too numerous to mention. 'E From here I continued my searching by automobile. When I came to the state line, whom should I meet but Walter Newcomb, who is a Utah State policeman. His only job is to lick labels and stick them on car windows. He said his sister, Ina Mae, is happily married and is living in Salt Lake City. He also informed me that he takes Ada Agnoletti for a ride on his rnortorcycle every Sunday afternoon. It is better than a bicvcle built for two and much more romantic. When I arrived at Reno, Nevada, I learned that Melba Masters had taken up per- manent residence there. It is rumored that she has so many divorces that she saves expenses by staying there. I a'so met John Houk at Reno. It seems as if he followed Melba trying to get her to cut her alimony. He says he can't support his latest wife, Annie Gucene, and pay Melta too. I'on't know how he will come out but I can guess. I was in Hollywood, California, before I found any trace of some other old stars of the Studio F.C.H.S. Then I went to the premier of "She Went South With The Boarder" and who should be playing but Hazel I.owe and John Grier. It really was a marvelous picture. Almost as good as Leno Venturi's successful drama, "The Fonevmoon Is Over." A trip to Hcllywotd wculdn't be complete without a tour of the movie studios there. C "' 0 nv on an sv .wanna At M.G.M. I met Geno Giagnoni and Wandalea Weaver. Geno is a Stage hand, while Wandalea is still plugging away trying to make the producers believe she is a second Garbo. Next I met Aldo Agnoletti and Frank Bigliazzi, tvio of Wall Street's handsomest inillif.En?ires. 'Ihey told me that Roberta Hedden is a fan dancer on Broadway, with a ot o ans. They also told me that Donald Wake was a business associate of theirs and was simply rolling in wealth. Vesta Bitner is a private stenographer for Cecil B. DeMi1le and is doing all right for herself. Bob Petrini is head of the Hollywood Police Department. He must have got there on his merits, not on his Irish eyes. Albert Fahnestock and Eldon Flesher are famous dentists. They guarantee to re- move teeth without pain. Their secret is thisg Eldon hits the patient on the head with a crowbar, at the same time Albert extracts the teeth. They are doing a rush business with the nearest hospital at which Mary Lou Westerby is the head nurse. Since she gave Joe the air she has dedicated herself to humanity. A second Florence Nightingale. Frank Kauzlarich is one of Mary Lou's latest patients. It seems as if he took an electric iron to bed with him to keep his feet warm and it set the sheets afire. He'll learn. Keith McKeever has purchased a newspaper in Hollywood which he has labeled "The McKeever Gazette." Mrs. McKeever, formerly Dorothy Wasson, is editor-in- chief, and their thirteen children do the delivering of this dailv paper. Robert Rodgers has purchased the largest night club in Hollywood and has em- ployed Dorcthy Palley and Louise Millard as entertainers. Erma Cantergiani, who has become a great orator, is now working for the Govern- ment. Dorothy Mooney is a great pianist and plays over the radio. She is employed by Pete Fencglio on his "Cures Corns Quick" Program. Maxine Cline writes all the scripts used on this program and Leslie Alberts does the announcing. John Seddon has charge of the sound system and Evelyn MacDonald is the vocalist. Arleen DuBois and Jerry Monari carry the heavv dramatic parts. Virginia Cruise and Pearl Filker do the advertising and at the same time demonstrate their pro- duct. I learned that some of the old stars of '40 had gone abroad. Barbara Zcok is in Spain where she has obtained for herself the honor of being the best lady bull-fighter in the world. Willis Hill is a fur trader in Canada. His business is growing everyday. Betty Hewitt is in Paris, where she designs clothes for canines. She is doing very well, so I hear. Charles Gasparovich is now in Australia trying his best to catch a kangaroo. So far he has had no luck but he won't give up the ship. , Elizabeth and Mary Macc-anelli have found themselves two millionaires with whom they are now vacationing in Cuba. Robert Ruggeri has taken up permanent resident in Hawaii. He's got the grass skirt blues. " ' Lowell Heller is in India learning how to charm snakes. Everyone to his own tastes. as the old ladv said when she kissed the cow. Herbert Boone is in Arabia trying to find the Cave of the Ars-hian Knights. He just won't give up. He savs he knows it is there, because he read about it in a book. Nellie Glasford is happily married and is in China with her husband, Roger Smith. who is a missionary there. Carl Hiltrop and Bettv Lou Ragsdale are in Mexico making their living by teaching Mexicans how to .make pottery. Marv Polito is in Brazil. She has patented her idea of how to grow artificial coffee beans. No wonder her husband drinks tea! Mary Maynard has taken over Dorothy Dix's column and is very popular with young lovers. Elinor Stalter is in Swit7erland and is she a flash on skis? Louise Hale, residing in England, holds the pcsition of private groom for Chamber- lain's umbrella. - So with all this information on old stars, I returned to the F.C.H. S. Studios. The new Superintendent, Robert Gentle, was very interested in my account of the class of '40, but he just could not see where I had accorvmlishrd anything in the line of new talent. As a result I was fired but I don't mind because Robert Kriete, president of the Boy Scouts, has promised that I am to be their first lady mascot. .iiiillidit a asa "" I" " 0' '- --1 . f in 'finfm as SENIOR CLASS PLAY Most of the excitement in "Taking The Count" occurred at the Allison home where the doctor and a piano tuner were mistaken for each other.

Mr. Bateman, Miss Threw Mr. Leach, Miss Heiman, Mr. Taylor In the fall of 1937, a group of camera shy youngsters entered the Studios of Farmington Community High School. We were enrolled as "extras" and referred to as "Freshmen" Foremost in our ranks and most ambitious for screen tests were James Perelli, Loretta Kyes, and Geraldine Dixon. Bewildered and frightened by the maze of equipment and the many stars and directors, we tried to avoid the spotlight as much as possible. However the upperclassmen were constantly focusing attention on us. As the year advanced and as we gained confidence, we overcame many obstacles in our pathway. At the end of the year we were greatly relieved to find that we had gone through the various scenes well enough to have another screen test which might lead to stardom. When we returned to location in '38, we were given small parts in both comedies and serious pictures. As we followed our class director, Vivian Du- Mars, and her assistants, Robert Garrison and Betty Howell, among the cameras, floodlights and sets, we saw our path loom before us much more clearly. Al- though these "bit" parts were not of great proportion, we were glad to have them and did the best we could with them. , After we had grown accustomed to the grinding of the cameras, we became the "stand-ins" for the Senior Stars. Early in the year we produced the domes- tic comedy, "Heart Trouble." Later several of our members attained distinction on the athletic teams, in the music department, on the school newspaper, in various clubs, and on the honor roll. On April 12, in an old Dutch village, we bade a fond farewell to the Seniors and promised to carry on the good work which they had given over to us. This last production, in technicolor, showed the departing Stars we were ready to compete for the Academy awards of next year. Q'YQ iiiiwfi I.

Mr. Higgs, Miss Carlson., Miss Dikeman On a bright September day in the year of 1938, the class of '42 entered as Freshmen into the vast Studios of F. C. H. S. The first directors were Keith Brashear, Rosemary Sutton, and Winifred Smear. We soon became acquainted on location and managed to pass the hard screen test of Initiation. One of our most important productions was the Christmas party with its great scope for dramatic talent. Although we were only "extras," we proved ourselves capable and promising so that the Studios signed us up as "bit" players for the next year. During 1939-40 we secured numerous important roles in the modern "Film of Education" which is soon to be released. Our members had parts in the athletic, music, and literary contests: they made places on the honor rollsg they represented us on the Argus Staff, and in the F. F. A. The most difficult acting we have encountered was that in the technicolor production of "Semester Exams"g however we managed to give a rather credit- able performance. To prove that we were really box office attractions, we staged a matinee dance at Spring Vacation. Now we are looking forward with eagerness to next year when we shall become understudies for the prominent Stars.

Miss Bear, Miss Smith, Mr. Brown In September 1939 one hundred future stars of the class of '43 entered the great Studios of F. C. H. S. hoping to become actors in the real life of school. The oHicers, elected at the beginning of the year, and the class advisers, helped us along the way. At Homecoming time, the Seniors, who take the leading roles, initiated us into the mysteries of studio organization. We then became full fledged "extras," playing a slightly larger part on the school stage. 0ur first screen test came at the time of semester examinations. Most of us were successful enough to rate part-time contracts for the rest of the year. At the end of the period of probation, we shall face the cameras again for the final test, iivhich will show how many of us are talented enough to return next year as "bit" players. GNP S H S E W if 'U' 'Si-me e av SCHOLARSHIP When one sees a great technicolor picture, he leaves the theatre with a fee'ing of awe or Wonder because it seemed so true to life. Do you know why such a movie makes him feel that way? It is because of the tireless work of costume designing, historical checking, color technicians and lighting effects. So it is with Scholarship. Not that there is a lot of costume designing or lighting effects to be figured out, but scholarship is something that takes as mrch time and labor. High scholastic ranking is not attained in a day or in a week or in six weeks. It is the result of hard study and careful planning over a period of months or years. An athlete is praised for the glory he brings to the school because of his feats in football, basketball, or track, but an honor student brings just as much glory and honor to the school becausecf his scholastic standing. ' ' " HONOR RANKING 'L . The grading system of F. C. H. S. is by the letters A, B, C, D, E, F, I, with numerical values of 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0, 0 respectively. ' ' Scholastic standings are divided into three sections, Perfect which is an average of 5 points: Excellent which is an average of 4.5 points and Honor Roll which is an average of 4 points. During the year 1939-40, ninety students have ranked high scholastically. I SENIORS P. Fenoglio, C. Hiltrop, G. Sutton, M. Westerhv, M. Greenwell, J. Monari., R. Rodgers, D. Wasson, B. Zook, B.

RUSHVILLE HERE: Rain, mud, and the Rushville eleven proved too much for the hometown team. The visitors shoved Farmington all over the field but scored only two touchdowns.

HAVANA HERE: An easy victory for the "Farmers", but sad news when Raymond Barber broke his ankle and was out of play the rest of the season.

His three years of experience were very helpful, for what the new men lacked, "Andy" had. Farmington will miss him severely next year. . ROBERT PETRINI-"Bob" neither asked nor gave any quarter. There were never any holes in his side of the line. His name also appears on the Senior list. FRANK BIGLIAZZI-Although new at this game, he did a good job as end. No one will ever forget his spectacular run in the Abingdon fracas. So long, "Shanks" DONALD WAKE-He was always reliable. Winning or losing, Wake had 'plenty of fight. His "grit" will be missed in the Farmington line-up next year. FRANK KAUZLARICH-"Kauzy" had a knee injury the greater part of the season, but when he did get into a game, it took a lot cf blocking to get him out of a play so the oppenent could go around that end. Frank's name is among the Seniors too. JOHN SEPICH--His punts and passes pulled Farmington ort of tough spots in every game. His plunging was a terrible strain on the enemy line. John will nct ke in action next year. LENO VENTURI-"Lemon" was raised to stardom in the Pekin game when he made that spectacular 40 yard run. He continued to make such runs the rest of the year and saved the day many a time. Good-bye, "Lemon". ROGER CLAYTON-"Rog" was new to football this year, but football was not new to him. At least toward the end of the season when he had the hang of the thing, his speed in the backiield was indispensible. "Rog" is leaving F. C. H. S. this ycar via the Senior route. CARL HILTROP-"Snipe" was the only experienced man in the backfield. He reallv gave his all for Alma Mater. Although the points he scored were few, one could not ask for a better defensive back. The graduating list also contains Hiltrop's name. ROBERT KREITE-There isn't a man who can spark a team like "Bob" can. He played in the backfield and in the line, and filled both positions well. Farmington is sorry indeed to lose this Senior lad. RAYMOND BARBER-When the boys wanted a hole in the "other" line., they asked "Ray" to make it. He never let them down. His injury in mid-season was a hard blow to Coach Grel:e's team. He too is graduating this spring. LESLIE ALBERTS-"Sid" did not see action all the time, but when Coach needed a dependable man, he turned to "Sid". Alberts also is a Senior. DELBERT BALAGNA-During his first year out,fDeltert played as a regular in the line. He was an asset to the team, and his services will be available two more years. WILLIAM BRUNIGA-There was a lot of weight and a lot of fight in "Bill'f He came out in mid-season and made good. He will be withius again next year. WILLIAM HITCHCOCK-"Billy" surprised everyone and made thefteam this year. He added a lot to the line, and will play for another two years. AMERIGO ARGEI-Somebody had to fill up the line, and "Muggs" did that very thing nicely. Luckily he will be back for another year. - ALDO AGNOLETTI., JERRY MONARI, and THOMAS GREENWELL-ie ceived letters for their faithful and patient service as managers. ses Hurts Kr...

In the "blind drawing" we were pitted against the Abingdon quintet for the first game. Although this was a spirited game, the "Farmers" finally won and then met the host team, Roseville. At the end of this final game, the lads from Farmington copped the win- ner's trophy to add to the many other proofs of hardwood success found in our trophy case. COUNTY TOURNAMENT Since the boys had been to Roseville, they were tournament wise, and then too, the County tournament at Cuba was not a new thing. The "Farmers" drew a tough paring but managed to come through in fine style against Astoria. Ipava was the next night's foe, and after a grinding duel all evening, we at last nosed them out with a score of 35 to 33. However the next game proved disastrous, for we bumped into the host team, Cuba. Although the Cuba lads were not the best aggregation in the tour- ney, they did have the advantage of being on their own floor and they were more rested than the "Farmers", In the end Lewistown won the tournament from the Cuba cagers. REGIONAL TOURNAMENT The "Farmers" seemed to have the jinx on the Ipava boys for we again trounced them in the Regional tourney held in Canton. The Farmington lads are to be congratulated on their defensive work in this game. As in the County tourney, the host team defeated our boys to the tune of 37 to 30. Although we had previously beaten Canton on the Plowboys' home floor, we were unable to hold down their star player who rolled up 21 points in this game. The Lewistown cagers went into the finals with Canton and emerged the victors by a narrow margin. BASKETBALL "F" MEN FRANK KAUZLARICH "Kauzy" served as captain this year and was his .team's main point getter. His rebounding helped the "Farmers" win many a contest. Frank scored 264 points during the season. F. C. H. S. will certainly miss him next year. ROGER CLAYTON . D No matter how tough the going was, "Rog" never gave up. He helped bring the old ball down, he served as the main defensive stay, and he found time to garner a total of 150 points. "Rog", too, is a Senior. JOHN HOUK "Curly," a constant fighter and a great rebounder, never let Farmington down. He was outstanding in both the Canton and the Lewistown games, mak- ing the winning basket in the Canton fracas and garnering 14 points against the Indians. John added 180 points to Farmington's score. So long, "Curly". ROBERT RODGERS "Dude" was probably the best defensive man on the team this year. He had his work cut out for him in every game. Not only did he keep the opponent's score down, but he also made 100 points for the "Fighting Farmers." He is in the graduating class this year. JAMES PERELLI "Jimmy" proved efficient in worrying the opposing teams by his fast drib- bling and quick breaking. He rolled up 104 points. Jim will be back next year, faster than ever. ' 1 DONALD BRIDGESTOCK p The scrappiest man on the whole team, "Bridgie" never gave up. He was a most dependable man and will be seeing much action next year. JAMES PRICE "Perky" did not see a great deal of action until towards the end of the year. He did his work well, however, and should be an asset to the team next year. ELMER GUIDI Elmer Guidi received a letter for his long hours of faithful service as manager. BASKETBALL SECOND TEAM Farmington had one of the best Reserve teanfs in history this year. This group included only underclassmen who will be back in F. C. H. S. next year. These lads closed the 1939-40 season with a percentage of .700, which is not bad at all. Besides the games in which they played, the Reserves made up a good team against which the Varsity practiced. Eleven boys received Re-serve letters for their work this year and should certainly give the sports fans in Farmington some good games next season. The Athletic Department awarded letters to Leno Venturi, John Sepich, Gerald Hedden, Cleo Hangen, Delbert Balagna, Jimmy Ingold, Clyde Bennett, Bill Bruniga, Wesley Krey, David Vaughan, and Albert Palley. STANDING: Lawrence Kimbrell, Raymond Fornengo, Frank Kauzlarich, Rob- ert Petrini, Ernest Columbia. Frank Bigliazzi. KNEELING: Gerald Hedden, Jimmy Ingold, Eugene Rogers, Roger Clayton, Robert Gentle, Donald Bridgestock. TRACK SEASON The Farmington thin-clads did not enter many track meets this year, but they walked away with all the honors in the meets in which they did enter. For a warm up at the beginning of the year, Coach Grebe scheduled several tri- angular meets with Cuba, Lewistown, Rushville, and other schools of about that same rank. Farmington emerged the victor in every dual or triangular meet entered. OC :X .A fl, 'll SPOON RIVER MEET Farmington garnered second place in this event with 33 points placing next to Rushville with 40 points. The Grebe team made firsts with Kimbrell in the pole vault, Fornengo in the mile, and Kauzlarich in the javelin throw. Krouscup took second in the quarter mile, as did Fornengo in the half mile. Gentle and Columbia were third in the half mile and javelin respectively. This was the first large meet in which the F. C. H. S. athletes participated. MILITARY TRACT MEET The Military Tract Meet was that very close affair in which we nosed out Stronghurst by a narrow margin. Farmington made this meet outstanding with such colorful events as Raymond fPoonj Fulton's setting a new record in the discus and Robert Gentle's terrific battling for first place in the half mile. To these "Ozzie" Kimbrell added several more points when he took first in both the pole vault and the broad jump. Besides winning the track meet, Farmington also took home the Grand Trophy for literary and music excellence. For seven consecutive years our contestants have managed to bring this trophy to our school. FULTON COUNTY MEET The "Farmers" were nosed out in this meet by a very good Canton team, but the Grebemen did cop places in many events. Kimbrell was first in the pole vault, and second in the broad jump: Fulton copped third in both shot and discus: in the javelin event Kauzlarich received second and Columbia fourth: Clayton came out second in the hundred and fourth in the two-twenty: Fornengo was second in the mile: Gentle ranked fourth in the half mile: Big- liazzi made fourth place in the high hurdles: and Petrini and Ingold both grab- bed fifth in the discus and high jump respectively. DISTRICT MEET The local team fail:d to accomplish much in the District meet because such scorers as Kimbrell, Fulton, and Fornengo were working and could not attend the meet. However Kauzlarich managed to edge out a third in the javelin, and Gentle came through with a fifth in the mile. LETTERMEN In order for an athlete to qualify for a letter in track, he must place in any track event outside of the dual and triangular meets. Eleven boys re- ceived letters for their endeavors in 1939: Kimbrell, Fulton, Krouscup, Forn- engo, Columbia, Gentle, Kauzlarich, Clayton, Bigliazzi, Petrini, and lngold. Ger- ald Hedden and Donald Bridgestcck also received letters for their work as managers. V, I . W Nhi- .Q M . . Q Y ,, , i sv l l ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION President .......... Vice-President .......

Walter Grebe As in the past years an Athletic Association was organized this year headed by Robert Kreite as President. The first thing the Association did was to sponsor the annual magazine campaign. By selling Crowell Publications the school netted more than 5150. This money was needed by the Association to further school athletics. In the contest held in connection with the subscription sales, the girls' team defeated the boys' team. Kenneth Mori ow and Mary Lou Westerby were highest in the sales. Next was the election of cheer leaders. The three girls chosen by the student body were among the best our school has ever had. They were constantly pleading and yelling and helped much in keeping up the morale of the team. The cheer leaders were garbed in flashy new uniforms of gold trimmed in purple. The Association annually sponsors the Homecoming, one of the biggest events in the school year. This year's affair turned out to be a success despite the fact that the unfavorable weather caused the postponement of the big parade, usually an annual feature. 'The school has purchased some new football eouipment to be used next seasor. Part of the expense of this purchase was paid by the Association.

GLEE CLUBS Farmington has for many years been proud of its fine Glee Clubs under the direction of Miss Floy Bear. This year the Advanced Girls' Glee Club con- sisted of forty-two girls and the Freshman Club included thirty girls. This training is open to any girl in the high school who wants to sing under class instrrction twice a week. Margaret Dickson was the accompanist for the Advanced Club, and Mary Jo Threw and Kathryn Davis played for the Fresh- man group. The Boys' Glee Club is made up of twenty-one boys and is accompanied by Patricia Smith. These boys also meet twice a week for a work-out in singing. The combined Glee Clubs presented the Cantata "Childe Jesus" in the school auditorium on December 19. Considered one of the highlights of the vear, this Cantata was done with a double chorus seated on either side of the stage, leaving an archway in the center of the stage for the pantomime hy the Speech students. Margaret Dickson and Patricia Smith accompanied the singers on two pianos. A committee of faculty and students had decorated the auditor- ium with silver Christmas trees and many colored lights. There is also a Mixed Chorus, selected from the three Glee Clubs, of thirty- five voices. This year the regular contest routine was changed, and our Mired Chorus took part in the Fulton County Chorus Festival held here on March 29. Ten schools from the County participated in this concert, with Miss Myrtle Nelson, of Kewanee, as guest conductor. Both the Boys' and the Girls' Clubs sang in the County Glee Club Contest which occurred in the local school on April 24. Both Cluks were given a second division rating which counted toward the Fulton County Literary and Athletic Union Grand Trophy. TOP ROW: Edna Succio.

THE ARGUS Students interested in creative writing and in journalism make up the staff which edits t'The Argus', the school newspaper appropriately named for the fabled giant with one hundred eyes. Each week these students edit a page in the local "Farmington Bugle" and each month they get out a special edition of four pages. "The Argus" contains news stories, editorials, features, poems, pictures, cartoons, and orginal essays. The staff tries to cover all the activities of the school in the various issues. Besides the routine work, the staff also sponsors several social events, including a steak fry, a Hallowe'en party, a pot-luck supper, a Christmas Dance, a theatre party, the annual St. Patrick's Dance, and a trip through the Peoria Star plant. This year 'The Argus" received second division rating in the N. S. P. A. scoring group. competing with many other school papers. 1939-40 STAFF Editor-in-chief ..........

Miss Youngblood, Miss Threw Quill and Scroll is an honorary society for high school journalists, organized in 1926 by a group of advisers for the purpose of recognizing and rewarding xx orthy school newswriters. The lccal Spoon River Chapter was established in 1936 and has become one of the most active clubs in F. C. H. S. The purpose of Quill and Scroll is to instill in students the ideals of scholar- ship, to advance the standards of the profession of Journalism by developing better journalists and by inclucating a higher code of ethics, and to promote exact and dispassionate thinking, clear and forceful writing. To become a member of this society a student must be of Junior or Senior standing, must be scholastically in the upper third of his class, and must be recommended by the supervisor of publications. On Monday evening, May 15, 1939, the Music Room, decorated in gay spring flowers, was the setting for the formal initiation of five candidatesg Elizabeth Maccanelli, Gracie Sutton, Merrill Dieken, Robert Gentle, and Weldon Tracy, who received their pins and certificates from Miss Youngblood in a candle lighting ceremony. On another Monday evening, December 19, 1939, at eight o'clcck in the study hall, twelve neophytes became members of the local chapter in an im- pressive ceremony conducted by Pete Fenoglio. The room was lighted with tall red tapers and decorated with pine branches, and sprigs of holly and mistletoe. These twelve students were Mary Lou Westerby, Barbara Zcok, Dorothy Rich, Frances Tellaro. Jane Gooden, Robert Timmons, Walter Blessing, Zelma Morse, Donald Wake, Nancy Tiezzi, Roger Clayton, and Robert Rodgers, who received their pins from Merrill Dieken. Two more new members joined the Spoon River chapter on April 15 when Lee McDonald and Minnie Fontana were added to the roll at the Annual Founders' Day banquet, held at the B. and L. Grill. Perhaps the most outstanding social event was the pot-luck supper at Thanksgiving time, when Miss Sidney Baldwin of Peoria addressed a group composed of newswriting students from the Farmington, Yates City, and Fair- viw High Schools. THE JUNIOR-SENIOR DINNER DANCE Through a maze of blue and white lattice work guests had their first glimpse of "Dutchland" when the Juniors entertained the Seniors, Faculty, and Board members at the annual dinner dance. Among beds of bright tulips and clever wooden shoes, tables were arranged for 200. Sophomore boys and girls, dressed in colorful Dutch costumes, served the dinner.

Parker, the difficult task of producing a box office attraction between the months of September and May. Mr. Parker astounded the local movie fans with a full length feature "The 39-40 FCHS Band," an undertaking which required hard work as well as school spirit. In order to give a star cast a good "build up" the local business men financed a three day "Pre-School' period at the Vandercook School of Music in Michigan. Here every camper improved his musical ability and enjoyed himself, for there were such sports as swimming, boating, tennis and other forms of amusement that youth enjoys. Shortly after this camping period ended. the first scene for the 39-40 movie was taken. The locale for this shot was Big Creek Park in Canton where the Band Serenad- ed the Fulton County Farm Bureau members on their annual picnic. The football season got underway about this time and an inspiring scene was made from the five home games in which the Band tookpart. Farmington's first home game. the Industry tussle, was fought out under a blazing sun, but the Band turned out in shining new purple and gold uniforms. Jimmy Perelli gave the occasion a spirited appearance with his baton twirling. The weather man snuffed our chance for one of the most colorful sequences of the picture by turning loose a thunderstorm on the Homecoming day, but a snappy Band marched down town between showers. Some very good technicolor shots resulted from the special performance by the Band on Armistice Day when Canton and Farmington met on the gridiron. Immediately after the filming of the football picture. the cast went into a short reel at the Byerlv Festival in Peoria. The highlight of this work was the memorable parade from the Armorv to the Courthouse where a huge massed band gave a concert. When the basketball season opened in December, the Band anpeared at every home game to cheer the "Famous Five" on to many a victory. The flag r-eremonv, worked out with the cheer leaders, proved to be very porular with the audience. During t'-fe haskethall reel, two special shots were taken. The first was made at the Fulton County Festival in Canton, and the second at the Solo and Ensemble Contest in Peoria. TOP ROW: Bill Jackson.

This money is irade by taking orders fr the varlozs hybrid szed corn dealers in our community. .Q x .,,. The Sectional Judging contest was held May 18, 1939, at Bushnell. The fat stock., dairy and poultry teams placed in the A division which entitled them to enter the State Contest in June. Lowell Heller ranked with the first ten in individual honors in the judging of poultry. The grand total of all teams gave Farmington fourth among twenty-two teams entered in this contest. At the State Annual F. F. A. Convention held in June at the University of Illinois, Lowell Heller and Pete Fenoglio received the State Farmer Degree Key. To receive this a boy must possess leadership, have high scholastic standing and an investment of 8250.00 in project work. Glenn Benner and John Schmidt played in the first annual F. F. A. Band. John also sang a solo accompanied by the band. The State Judging contest was held at Urbana, June 11, 1939 with all four of the F. C. H. S. teanfs competing. The fat stock team included Lee McDonald, Kenneth Sipp, and Donald Bowton. Donald Bowton tied for first in judging sheep. The dairy team was Harold Wasson, Robert Ellis and Seward Fisher. The grain team included Pete Fenoglio, Raymond Barber, and Jimmie Ingold. The poultry team, composed of John Schmidt and Lowell Heller, placed in the A division, with Lowell Heller placing eighth in judging poultry and tying for first in judging American breeds of poultry with a perfect score. The grain team travelled to Delavan on December 14, 1939 and placed second there. In individual ratings Lowell Heller came in second and Jerold Leeper made fourth. The five boys who made this trip were Kenneth Sipp, Russel Doubet, Pete Fenoglio, Lowell Heller and Jerold Leeper. The 1940 Sectional Livestock Judging contest was held at Mason City on May 9. The Dairy team placed second with Harold Wasson ranking fourth in individual judging. 'Ihe Poultry team placed third with Pete Fenoglio and Leon Dollet ranking fifth and sixth respectively. Each of the three teams is eligible for the State contest. In the grand total the Farmington teams placed second. During the summer the boys competed at the various County, State and Sectional Fairs and after all expenses were paid they netted a profit' of about S700 in premiums. The total net profit for the year was 33,949.86 an in- crease of 81,472.30 over the year before. In every organization there are boys who do outstanding work. During the past year the following boys have done fine work as F. F. A. members: those with Swine projects: Victor Cernich, Ben Engle, Pete Fenoglio, Lowell Heller, Jerold Leeper, Grant Nelson, Kenneth Sipp, and Harold Wassong Beef: Lee McDonald and Kenneth Quinn: Poultry: Pete Fenoglio and Lowell Heller: Sheep: Frank Kauzlarich, Robert Gentle, Russel Doubet, William Bruniga, and Amerigo Argieg Dairy: Grant Nelson: Grain: Clyde Williamson and Albert Fahnestock. Dorothy Morotti Margaret Greenwell Helen Scapecchi Carol Mae Dalton CITIZENSHIP In order that we may not lcse sight of the privilege of living in a free land, a large American flag, eight feet by twelve feet, flies from a tall steel pole on the front campus of the high school. Kenneth Morrow and Walter Mitchell have been in charge of displaying the flag for the last two years. In this abundant land of ours, it is fitting and proper that we should take time at intervals to show the patriotism that is in our hearts. This is especially appropriate when in the midst of a sport minded crowd and the national flag isbeing unfurled before one. The spectators and participants of F. C. H. S. basketball games were deeply impressed with the flag ceremony which took place between the varsity games, as the cheer leaders, Helen Scapecchi, Carol Mae Daltrn and Dorotbv Morotti, marched down the flcor carrying flags while the band played, the spectators stood at attention.
