Feitshcm's High School
Here it is Septembervagain and time to start
the 1949 edition of the Log. Wonder what this
year will bringf? We hope a good football sea-
son, plenty of basketball victories, lots of good
runners for track, loads of fun, and not too
much Work. I am looking forward to graduation
in June, I hope, I hope! I can hardly Wait to
see all that will happen. '

The P.T.A. has really done a lot helping
the school inthe last couple ot years. They
bought beautiful new curtains hanging in the
auditorium, they redecorated the teachers rest
room, and helped the Log by giving us money.
This year they asked the Board of Education to
buy us a new piano for the first floor, or an
amplifier for the gym. The Board bought the
piano so the P.T.A. bought the amplifier. Each
year they give the football and basketball team
a big banquet, which l've heard has been
mighty good. The Whole school really wishes
to thank this splendid organization. In appre-
ciation we dedicate this 1949 edition of the Log
to the PTA.

. A TRIBUTE TO TWEN
Mr. Fred C. Nichols graduated from Wabash
College, Crawfordsville, Indiana in 1916. ln
college he played football two years, baseball
four years. His best batting average was .42l.
During his Senior year he was captain of the
baseball team as well as instructor in Mathe-
He was in th
e Navy during World War I.
He then taught in Indian t
a wo years before
coming to Springfield High School. For four
years he was in charge of the Freshmen -in the
old Central Building. He was principal of Du-
bois school for two years. In the fall of 192
he was call d
e upon to organize Feitshans High
School. He became principal h
ere and con-
inued in that position for 20 years.
Mr. Nichols worked very hard during the
depression years to have Feitshans take a place
of prominence in Springfield. l -

Golly! Was I Worried today! l got an
office call from Mr. Wax. l wondered
what l had done now. but all my Wor-
rying was wasted though, because he
just wanted to make out my next semes-
ter schedule. Mr. Wax is really helpful
to us boys. l understand the girls like
him pretty Well, too. l guess he has to
keep an eagle eye on us to see why we
weren't in school, or we would all be

Dear Diary: .
Ieepers! Miss Cogswell really
straightened me out today. I had no
idea What subjects were required for
graduation from high school. lf she
hadn't called me in for a little chat l
Would probably have had all minors
and no majors in my subjects. She
also gave me' some helpful advice on
how to choose my vocation when l
graduate. Everyone is grateful for her
interest in us. Shereally understands
all the girls' problems. Miss Cogswell
also teaches two classes in English.

Some were happy While others were sad as they said good-bye to high school

These Seniors gave a Ir. Sr. banquet in l947 and gave the "Winter
Wonderland" Prom in l949. Everyone enjoyed both of these affairs. They
sold coke at the football games and basketball games and with money secured
from these sales bought a case to store records for the amplifier in.
We wish you all good health, enough Work, and much happiness.

say good-bye to F.H.S. Everyone is sad to leave high school, but many have
exciting plans for continued Work and study.

We1l,' the baseball bats and track spikes,
have been hung up for another year. The boys
are looking forward to football season next fall
and basketball after that. Feitshans had a very
successful year in athletics, of course: Feit-
shans always has been successful in athletics
because the true purpose of athletics is to pro-
mote sportsmanship and good relations with
other high schools. We at Feitshans try our best
to live up to those principles. Long may the
true athletic spirit reign high at Feitshcms.
ln the following pages we are taking you
back over the school year and showing the
high lights of our athletic campaigns from
football to baseball.

VARSITY WINS SECOND PLACE IN CONFERENCE! THREE CHEERS
The 1948 Feitshans football team did more
than We expected this year. By Winning five
out of nine games they took second place in
the Central Conference.
The Flyers will have fourteen lettermen re-
turning next year so We expect to see plenty of
action, especially in that strong backfield.
We are sorry to lose such fine lettermen as
Winston, I. McLaughlin, Fox, Griffith, Hamende,
Dexheimer, Drury, Pendleton, Hubbard, and
Matuszki, but we wish them good luck in their
after high school days.
We also wish good luck to the Flyers of next
year and hope they make that year as suc-
cessful as this one. Let's keep the good sports-
manship, pep and plenty of action to do justice
to our swell coaches, Earl Wax and Walter
Archie and Susie.
COACH EARL WAX
Coach Earl Wax did a fine job of
coaching football this fall. After win-
ning first place in Conference last
year, we Won second place in the
Conference this year. We're rooting
for another first next fall!

The beginning of this season showed that
the Flyers would probably be slow. We lost
most 'ot' our first games, but as the season got
underway We showed great improvement. We
were unfortunate to lose four great lettermen,
Ufbcts, Hamende, Winston, and Pendleton at
the Amid-year' graduation. After the mid-year
graduationtwe thought that our winning streak
would decrease, but our team turned out ton
...tw L.-. ,A
straight Wins. Our team was eliminated in the
second game of the Regionals, by losing to
Lincoln. We will be very sorry to lose this year,
such great letterrnen as Fox, Griffith, and Doer-
fler. We will be fortunate to have with us such
good players as Ellis, Alewelt, Dentino, Mat-
lack, Iones, and Melton, next year. Our hats
are off to Mr. l-lalberg for leading us in this
very successful season.
LE ROY HALBERG
Dear Diary: -
Mr. LeRoy Halberg has been our
basketball coach at F.H.S. for the
last three years. This year he piloted
the Flyers through a very successful
season., We are a very fortunate
school to have such a Wonderful
coach. Our hats are off to Mr. Hal-
berg for his great Work as the Feit-
shans High School basketball coach.

RESUME or THE sEAsoN
Feitshans started the season off by defeat-
ing Riverton 27 to 2l. Everyone was happy
that we had Won our first game of the new '48
schedule. Our second game was close. We beat
Lincoln just in the last few minutes of play by
one little point. Our first defeat came the next
Week with Iacksonville's victory over us. The
boys did not let this one game bother them.
They came back the next game to beat Mt.
Pulaski. However, traveling to Beardstown gave
us another defeat, making the total then 3 won
and 2 lost. The next two games were also vic-
tories for Clinton and Athens respectively.
Clinton took that game in the last 10 seconds
with a field goal from the center of the court.
The Athens game was close but our team just
couldn't make those winning baskets. School
closed for the Christmas Holidays, but the
team continued to work. The city tournament,
something new for the Springfield schools, was
held during this holiday week. ln the first
game of the tournament We defeated Lanphier,
but Cathedral and Springfield defeated us the
we lost three of our first five players to mid-
year graduation. Mr. Halberg filled in these
vacant spots with substitutes and they contin-
ued the Winning streak by beating Petersburg,
St. Iames, Kincaid, Mason City, Virginia, and
Clinton. The last game of the year was really
a thrill. As a sort of revenge, the team beat
Clinton in the last few seconds of the game,
just as they had beaten us before Christmas.
Although our schedule was completed we still
had the regional tournament to play. We met
Atlanta in the first game and defeated them
51 to 35. We were then scheduled to meet
Lincoln and this was our down fall. Our first
defeat in the last eleven starts. Basketball ended
for F.H.S. and the three graduating seniors.
Next year we hope the team will be as good
and even better than this one. '
next two nights. Springfield won the tournament,
and F.H.S. came in third.
After the tournament the team travelled to
Mt. Pulaski to defeat them by four points. Then
we met Williamsville and sent them away with
another victory to our credit. Beardstown came
to Springfield and this time we defeated them.
We then traveled to Gillespie to be defeated
by the Miners 62 to 57. This was our last defeat
'till the regional tournament. We had victories
over Carlinville, Virden, and Iacksonville before

At the beginning of the season 70 boys
turned out for track. After the season got un-
derway we were hampered by injuries, sick-
ness, and cold weather.
Our team is not an outstanding team but
shows promise. The freshman team showed
very little promise this year because of the
small turnout. The track team won the Central
conference championship for the second time
by taking 63 points at Iacksonville, April 30.

LE ROY HALBERG
Mr. Halberg has been coaching
the flyers for the last three years.
The years that Mr. Halberg has been
here he has brought the Flyers up
to a 5002 average of games won.
Last year Mr. Halberg brought the
Flyers through to a second in the
city. We are fortunate to have such
an experienced coach to pilot the
Flyers through this season of base-
newcomer Paul Robinson, also a sophomore.
The remainder of the squad will be made up
of boys Who participated in the freshman-
sophomore games last season. So far this
season has been favorable but there is more
room for improvement in hitting. Keep going
boys and let's Win the tournament.

plays for many ot our school activities such as

march in many ot the city parades. Each tall

up and down the streets practicing for those
parades and football games. It really takes
lots oi Work to get those lines straight and Work
out those tricky formations.
The band played at the city basketball
tournament, the Army Day Parade, and several
concerts at the Grade Schools as well as the
annual spring concert. Each sixth period you
can hear the band blowing on their little horns
but they really add a loving spot in everyone's
heart because they are a part of F.H.S. that

Messiah", and a Spring Concert. The Choir had
an entirely new experience of participating in
a combined concert with Lanphier and Spring-
field Choirs for the Noon Day Luncheon Club.
Rather a busy group, yes? The Board of Edu-

These are the girls whose voices sound
forth every other day, sixth hour. Under the
capable direction ot Miss Alice Matlack, the
Girls' Choir has become well known at Feit-
shans and each girl is holding high the hope
of entering First Choir in the near future. Here's
to the lovely voices that will some day enhance
the A Cappella Choir.
This is the Choir Where boys and girls learn
to sing in tour part harmony. This Well directed
Choir, whose director is Miss Alice Matlack,
will some day be the First Choir of Feitshans.
Each inember is hoping to achieve this goal
and We cheer them onward.

HBEWABE OF THE DROP THAT MAKES ONE HIGH," is the slogan
of our up and coming Allied Youth Organization. To become a member of this
organization you must be a High School Student and take an oath vowing
complete voluntary abstinence from alcoholic beverages. lt is not so bad as
it may seem because We do indulge in some kinds of corn. Our meetings are
held at the school every otherweek on Mondays or Thursdays. After a short
business meeting We dance, play cards, and have games. All good things
must come to an end iwith something to eat, of coursel, so We have refreshments
to top oft our evening of fun.
Last year Allied Youth sponsored the amateur show. Everyone agreed
it,Was a huge success but We hope the showftthis year will be even bigger

have a coke party. I wonder whom I should
invite as my guest.
This club is sponsored for Iuniors and Sen-
iors frorn F.H.S. by the Y.W.C.A. We not only
have fun and parties but learn many interesting
things about future Vocations. We've even had
a few sessions on dates and such. This is a
swell club and all Iuniors and Seniors should
join because they would really enjoy it.
The officers are: Marilyn Smith, President:

The Hi Y Club at Feitshans was organized
several years ago for Iuniors and Seniors from
school. Mr. Kenny is the adviser and meetings
are held at the Y.M.C.A. The club sent their
President, lim Fox, to a convention in Chicago
and four of the members went to Bloomington

This year the Varsity Club is going to have a
lot ot new members. Most of the new members
are Sophomores who earned their varsity let-
ter in one of our tour major sports, football,
basketball, track or baseball. At the present
our club has 29 members. This year the one
thing that all the old members are waiting for
and that is the initiation of the new little mem-
bers. This should really be something. I feel
sorry tor those new prospects.

Who said girls know nothing about sports?
You should see them down in the gym playing
volleyball and basketball. Also down at the
Bowl throwing those heavy balls!! They even
make a few strikes now and then. This year we
had a tumbling team in which the girls could
really turn themselves upside down. Over a
hundred girls take part in these G.A.A. activities
and atter completing all requirements, they are
eligible for letters in the spring.
