The bottom floor, west side, con- sists of the bookkeeping room that is joined by the typing room. There is a glass partition that divides the two rooms. On the east s de is the boys' locker room, the furnace room, the agriculture room, and last comes the girls' locker room. On the second floor, beginning with the west side is the mathematics room, the superintendent's office, and last is the science room. On the east side is the English room, and the American and world history romn On the top floor is the old gymnasium and the principal's office. The old gym is now the study hall. The old study hall is now the bookkeeping and typing room. Now to the north side of our school is the beautiful-new gymnasium. It m completed in 1951, and dedicated on the evening of January 3, 1952. The Honor- able Harold H. Velde, U. S. Representative was the principle speaker of the eve- ning. It contains the home economics room and the cafeteria. It also has boys' and girls' locker rooms. These new improvements make our school one the best in the county. Our school having been combined with Forest City High School, has been given the new name forman Senior High School.

U-Iarold Meyer, Paul Hawkins absent . TRANSPORTATION The Forman Unit has six ouses and a station wagon ror the transportation of students to and from school. The buses range in size from a BL passenger to a 52 passenger. There are four that will seat L6. The cost of a new 52 passenger bus would be approximately 6ooo dollars and the L6 passenger would cost about L,5O0 dollars, new. There are about 306 children riding the busses each day. The longest route for a bus in a day in about 70 miles. Last year it cost 867.92 to transport one child to and from school for the complete year. Multiply this figure by 300 and you will get the approximate cost for transportation this vear. The men who have driven this year are as follows: Leonard Graff, Walter Kennedy, Ralph Whitaker Robert Rankin, Harold Meyer, R. G. Casey, Paul Hawkins, Jim Sanmann and Darrel Rilst. JANITORS Most of us take for granted our well kept buildings little realizing the work that must be done to keep our school clean and warm. The sight of Mr. Farnam and Mr. Graff going about their daily work is so common to us that we may sometimes forget just how important they are. They are responsible for seeing that the rooms are swept daily, rooms heated properly, rest rooms kept clean, garbage carried out and hundreds of other tasks performed. Have you done your share in helping them do their job. Who among you have thoughtlessly thrown trash on the floor or left paper to clog the drain pipes? If you have done these things you have made their-job more difficult. The Janitors are proud of our buildings. Are you? 'Pete' Rankin also helps w1th the janitorial 'duties. He has been the night fireman during the times when the independent teams played basketball. He has also taken over when the regular Janitors were absent. SMITH' S GROCER!

Seated: Joyce Matthews. The teachers and students at F.C.H.S. are very fortunate to have a new cafe- teria located on the second floor of the gym directly above the home economics sh plenty of light, the north end contains the kitchen and the south end has space for washing dishes and preparing vegetables. The walls and ceiling of the lunch room are white. The floor is covered with plywood in a natural finish. Students eating in the cafeteria pay 51.25 a week or 3.25 a day. As they file by the lunch counter they pick up their food which has been placed on the plates by the cooks. They then find seats at metal tables. The tables will seat lbh students if a chair is added to each end of the table, otherwise 126 can be seated at one time. There is no definite seating arrangement and every body enjoys a pleasant lunch with a minimum of noise and confusion. The new cafeteria cost approximately ten thousand dollars. This amount in- cludes getting the room ready for use and furnishing it with equipment necessary for preparing and serving the lunches. work is made much easier for the cooks by the many modern conveniences installed in the room. The new equipment con- sists of a dish washer, potato peeler, coolers and steam tables. All of the dishes can be done in the dish washer except pots and pans which must be washed by hand. Because of the large enrollments in both the grade school and the high school there are several different lunch periods in order to take care of all the students. I am sure that all students eating their lunches in the cafeteria will agree that the cooks and their assistants have done a wonderful job this year and that the cafeteria is one more step in making our high school an up to date institu- tion.

OW This year the jolly juniors have had a busy season. The junior class sold more magazines than any other class in the magazine sales campaign at the be- ginning of the year. Next was the class play 'If Mother Only Knew'. Mrs. Lawlis, the play di- rector,land the class worked hard to make the play a success. Those who were not in the play had some part in helping to present it. Then along came the basketball season with juniors in charge of the conces- sions at every home game including all games of the Mason County Tournament, held here at Forman. The sponsors, Miss Conover and Mr. Johnson, worked hard to help with the event. The juniors and their sponsors did their part in making the tournament a big success. The lucky day for the juniors arrived when they received their class rings. Although they were proud, of them, a few didn't keep them long. The juniors should be proud of their class and sponsors. All have helped to make this year a big and happy success for all concerned. SCHIPPER E BLOCK CO. Dry Goods Ready-to-Wear Pekin, Illinois 1 Q E 3 ,ff mf X , WOM EE I .

The ambitious sophomores began the year by electing the following officers: Dick Wells, president, Loren Sunderland, vice president, Loretta Warner, secre- tary-treasurer, and Janet Lempke, class reporter. They sold magazines for Crowell Collier and Curtis Publishing Companies, mak- ing a profit of S6l.L6 from both companies. Being in charge of the Christmas Party, they decorated a tree in the ym and gave a play called, 'Pop Reads The Christmas Carol', directed by Mrs. iawlis. Those who did not take part helped in setting the stage. All the schools in the Unit were invited. After entertainment a treat was distributed. Everyone en- joyed the party except those who were absent because of the snow. The class went on a skating party, January 18th, at the Sky Ranch. Each per- son was given the privilege of inviting a guest. Everyone had fun even though he did take a few spills. Mrs. Eckman and Mr. Brodman are the sponsors who helped them plan their ac- tivities. Since Mrs. Eckman has gone, Mrs. Hewitt has taken her place. THE PHOTOGGERY Your Camera Shop Phone 103 512 Court St. Pekin, Illinois ,,,f'--' ' " "' X Q i ' E.

The Forman Braves have done exceptionally well in basketball for their first year. At the beginning of the season they soon climbed to first place in the Mason County standings with a 8-0 record. However, Easton downed the Braves in their ninth challenge by a ten point margin. Sailing for the Braves was not so smooth for the rest of the season. So when the County Tournament rolled around, Forman was ready for a rouzh battle ahead. Mason City secured the title while Havana ousted Easton to win second place. Easton topped Forman in the fight for third place leaving the Braves fourth in the County. Parker Lawlis was down with the measles and was unable to play in the last two games of the tourney. For the first time in the history of our schools the County Tournament was held at Manito in the new Forman High gymnasium. Forman had the privilege of having an over-all high attendance record and the highest total gate receipts for any Mason County Tournament. The Junior class sold refreshments at every home game and during the County Tournament. The proceeds went into the Junior treasury. The money will be used to help take a trip at the end of their senior year. Roy Runvon furnished the venison for a delicious supper in honor of the bas- ketball squad. Other prominent businessmen donated to the feast and were pre- sent at the supper alone with the cheerleaders and members of the faculty and their wives. The supper was prepared at Monroe's Cafe on the evening of Jan- uary l6, 1952. Pictures were taken by Danny Jenkins after everyone had finished eating. For Fine Furniture See Harry Abel at 326 Court Street FREDMAN BROS. Pekin, Illinois At the beginning of basketball season it was decided that there would be an Athletic Banquet for the basketball and baseball boys of both Forman Senior High and Forman Junior High. The Mothers Club prepared the supper at 81.75 a plate. Itxwas held in the Forman gymnasium and the speaker for the evening was Mr. Stanley from Beloit College. The banquet was open to the public. Present atdm feast were the members of the faculty, the Board of Education, the basketball and baseball squads from both schools, and people throughout the communities. There were several outstanding games during the basketball season. Easton clashed with Forman for the first time to decide the first place standing in Mason County. Forman took a seven to nothing lead in the first few minutes of play in the first quarter but the Hawks soon blew us wide open and took over the game. They continued to lead at the end of the game and won by a ten point mar- gin. Forman journeyed to Havana on December 18, to pull through a hard fought game by beating the Ducks 55-52. Forman journeyed to Athens to enter the Athens- Greenview Tournament. They were beaten in the first game by Ashland. Ashland then advanced to the finals to meet Athens. Athens dropped Ashland to win the Athens-Greenview Tournament. On January 22, Athens traveled to Forman in hopes of securing another victory. However, the tables turned and the Braves backed up another win by downing the champions by four points, hh-LO. It was a close game all the way with first one team leading and then the-other. Forman has dropped eight games this year: Easton copped three, Mason City took two, Ashland landed one, Petersburg racked up one, and Pekin took the last. Because of its' size, Forman went straight to the Pekin Regional this year to play Pekin in the first game on March 3. New sweat shirts were awarded to the first ten at the beginning of the County Tournament. They are blue with orange and white trimming along the shoulders and around the bottom. The old sweat jackets were given to the second team. The seniors are beginning to realize now how much they are going to miss sports when they get out of school. Every once in a while someone says, I wish T had just one more year left. Well, that's the way it goes and we hope that the underclassmen will take advantage of that statement and enjoy the sports while they have the opportunity. 5 Wake-.?

Four girls and one boy were chosen from a group of eleven girlsamd three boys. Those selected were: Lois Hilst, Glenda Kennedy, Joy Risen Eloise Whitaker, and Gary Gorden. Lois and Glenda are the graduating cheerleaders. Since the school colors are now orange and blue, the cheerleaders needed new in pole vault and third in hop-step and jump. uniforms. The school furnished the material for blue weskits, blue skirts lin- ed with orange, and orange tights.

CParker Lawlis - absents. Forman's first season in baseball turned out to be a good one. There were thirty-six boys out for baseball this year. Coach Brodman was very much pleased to see such a good turn out. Some new equipment was purchased this year, in- cluding gray and blue suits, twelve baseball bats, and a new catcher's protec- tor. The boys all worked hard and were rewarded for their efforts by receiving the Mason County Championship Trophy. The school and community were all grate- ful to the coach and team for winning the troohy, which is one of the largest we have. The team. won several Abe Lincoln scheduled games but bowed to Athens, which ut them out of the race. As a reward, the team, was taken to see the P Bradley-Tampa and the U. of I. versus U.C.L.A. football games. There were sev- eral double plays and a triple play this year which showed keen team work. The boys olaved in the following position: CF - Hawkins replaced by Kreiling, replaced by Sunderland, LF - Rakestraw replaced by Hein- horst, P - Thomas replaced by D. wilson, 3B - C.

This group has sponsored various shows given by the John Deere Company, In- ternational Harvester Company, and the Manito Mill. Our part in sponsoring these various shows is to see that the chairs are put up in the gym and that other equipment is on hand. The money from these shows pay for the movies which we have each month. The movies we have sponsored are as follows: 'All This and Heaven To.' 'A Bell for Adano', 'Prince of Foxes', and NGuadacanal Diaryn. We also paid for the exhaust fan in the smoking room in the gym.

In l9L5 an organization, sponsored by the State and National Home Economis Associations and the State and Federal Departments of Education was formed. Representatives met in regions to make plans for this organization. These repre- sentatives from all parts of America met in Chicago. They chose as the name, THE FUTURE HOMEMAKERS OF AMERICAg the red rose as their flowerg and red and white for their colors. These colors express youth. Red has long been the sym- bol for courageg white, the symbol of purity. They adopted an emblem which is octagonal in shape. We have a constitution by which we abide and eight purposes or goals for which we strive to make home and communiu'1ife happier. F.H.A. was organized at Forman in 1950 under the direction of Mrs. Joan Som- mer. This year our sponsors have been Mrs. James Eckman and Mrs. Leonard Hewitt.

At Thanksgiving we gave a large basket of groceries to a needy family in this area. In November, we celebrated National F.H.A. Week. We had a project for every day of the week and on Sunday we attended the Manito Methodist Church. We sent two dozen red roses and presented rose corsa es to Mrs. Eckman and Mrs. Foste.

The officers are Fred Heyl, Presidentg Marvin Quick, vice-president Q Ross Kreiling, secretary, Don Meyer, treasurerg Fred Friedrich, reporter, Wayne Knaak sentinel, John Schimmelpfenning, historian. The latter part of July and early August of 1951 saw some of the members at the project show at the Lewiston Fair Grounds. Our F.F.A. boys did well by bringing home a large number of ribbons. Some of the F.F.A. boys attended the Leadership Camp at Epworth Camp grounds at Lewiston in August 1951. This is a camp composed mainly of officers and advisors. On December 8, 1951, two car loads of boys traveled to Delavan to participate in the judging and grain show held there annually. The Forman F.F.A. took first place in the judging contest. Many ribbons were awarded our boys on the corn they displayed. This corn was raised by the boys as a summer project. The boys sold stationary, wrapping paper, and ribbons for the Christmas season. Later on in February, they sold garden seeds, working in cooperation with the Vitality Seed Company. The F.F.A. had printed a calendar with a picture of all the members on it. Money for publishing this calendar was obtained by selling ads, which appeared on the calendar, to the local merchants. In the spring, the boys planted pine trees for Lewis Warner. For the past three years the F.F.A. has had a chain gilt program. Each boy who receives a gilt is to return two bred zilts to the chapter for distribution the next year. This year four gilts were distributed to members of the chapter. As a final climax to a very successful year for the Agriculture Department a parent and son banquet was held in the Forman Gym on the evening of March 27. VOGhL'S INC.
