THE CHHUIHPH UFIQZH PUBLI SHED BY n F,E,H,S, SHHUR ELHSS The class of of those and will members of the senior 1941 in appreciation influences which have continue to contri- bute'toward their best inter- ests, wish to dedicate this annual to Hthe community.N This dedication is parti- cularly to the Forreston Com- munity . However, the class members realize that the word Hcommunityn has a broader meaning and thus include those factors and cersons of the world at large which help to enrich their lives. affix 'R-'E' i 1 , ' . 3' xg gil A ,.- ., i LX- , , Of- X v 'B " I I , D,,. iii ' s P-fe TN Q HUILUEQE Es :J emu HHEH HMS uw ww ,,,,, At the beginning of the school year we entered the building which had been put in Htip topu shape by the L, janitors. In the office ' we noticed an extra desk which we found out belonged to Mr. Poe who had been made principal. The typing students were all very glad to see new typewriters in place of the old ones. Early in the year students became conscious of the fact that a guidance plan had been insti- tuted. Miss Plagge was in charge and particularly emphasized vocational guidance through interviews and accumulation of reading material. At our first basketball game the boys had new uniforms which made them feel quite proud. The cheer-leaders also had new outfits which were very becoming to them. Mr. Winebrenner and his English classes great ly appreciated the Literary Map of the British Isles because it was a great help when studying their literature. During the first semester, hour classes were held but this did not prove entirely satisfactoryg so, during the second semester forty-minute class- es were held. Byghaving forty-minute classes physical education was available. ' For the second semester Miss Ray was glad to have new stoves, a ' supply cabinet, and new stools in the home ec room.

So started the class of 1941 with the following enrollment: Phyllis Kampen, Marcile Gesin, Glenn Mase Jr., Ralph Erdman, Margaret Bornemier, Wilmith Elam, Ethel Long, Dortha Mae Roskam, Helen Kaney, Lucille Wubbena, Mildred' Munk, Minnie Weegens, Ted Schoon, Leroy Smith, Boyd Doeden, Lester Gerwig, Edwin Kilker, Lois Blair, Evelyn Jacobs, Marie Hedrick, Frances Gene Lang, Gerald Duitsman, Simon Schroeder, Donald Buttel, Kenneth Homan, Harold Birkholz, Laverne Peters, Milford Alberts, Vernon Abels, Betty Garman, Inge Dalsheim, Doris Kleckler, and Alice Twigg. The following class officers were elected: President Inge Dalsheim Vice-President Doris Kleckler Sec. E Treas. Mildred Munk Advisor Mr. Manus Lois Blair became vice-president when the office was vacated by Doris Kleckler. Marcile Gesin and Gerald Duitsman were the first semester reporters, with Lois Blair and Glenn Mase serving during the second semester. Great promise was shown in sports, band and glee club, but there was no outside activity sponsored by the class. The sophomores who came to F. G. H. S. in 1958, had lost three members. These were: Helen Kaney, Phyllis Kampen, and Margaret Bornemier. The following were chosen as class officers: President Wilmith Elam Vice-President Harold Birkholz Sec. R Treas. Lois Blair Advisor Thu Ragsdale First semester reporters were Frances Gene Lang and Gerald Duitsman. Second semester re- porters were Inge Dalsheim and Donald Buttel. Vernon Abels was elected class president when Uilmith Elam moved away. Other members lost during the course of the year were Alice Twigg and Leroy Smith. But Betty Williams, Flossie Norris, and Victor Conkey joined us at the beginning of the year. In September 1938, once again we assumed our' school activities. We were minus only one memberg Ralph Erdman, who was replaced by Ellsworth Lewis, formerly of Wisconsin. The following class officers were elected: President Ethel Long Vice-President Gerald Duitsman Sec. a Treas. Harold Birkholz Advisor Miss Plagge Marcile Gesin'and Glenn Mase served as first semester reporters, with Lucille Wubbena and Ken- neth Homan working as second semester reporters. Flossie Norris was the second semester editor-in- chief. We received 1510.00 for a float entered in the parade on Sauerkraut Day. Among other things a corn game and candy booth were sponsored at the Senior Carnival. In the fall, we purchased our class rings. The Junior play, HAlmost Eighteenn, presented in April, was a great success. The Junior-Senior Banquet was given May 18 at Emmert's Tea Room in Freeport. In the fall of 1940 we re-entered high school for the fourth and last time as students. We were fortunate in our enrollment, inasmuch as we lost only one member, Boyd Doeden, and were introduced to two new members, Vivian Bradley, formerly of Shannon, and Jane Bogus, formerly of Dixon. Our enrollment was now increased to thirty. It seemed hard to believe that the four years in F. C. H. S. had passed so quickly. Class officers elected were: President Marcile Gesin Vice-President Donald Buttel Secretary Flossie Norris Treasurer Evelyn Jacobs Class advisors Miss Plagge, Mr. Winebrenner Betty Williams and Teddy Schoon were elected as first semester reporters. The editor-in-chief was Evelyn Jacobs. The second semester reporters were Vivian Bradley and Ellsworth Lewis, while Lucille Wubbena was the editor-in-chief. Betty Garman was chosen Sauerkraut Queen, Flossie Norris and Jane Bogue were attendants. we entered a float in the parade for which we auto matically received Ll5.00. The class decided to have a carnival, in order to raise money for class expenses. The Senior class play was given in May before a large audience. The graduating class numbered 30, 22 of whom started as freshmen here.

Inquiring about her destination he found that she was a movie ac- tress on her way to Hollywood to make a picture. Wanting some information from the stewardess they found that she was their old schoolmate, Frances Gene Lang. She was delighted to see them and while talking happened to mention that Milford Alberts was pilot and Gerald Duitsman was co-pilot of the plane in which they were traveling. Landing at Omaha at 4:15 in the afternoon, Donald and Vivian drove to town for dinner. On the way they passed two hitch hikers--none other than Victor Conkey and Glenn Mase. Giving them a ride they learned a lot of information concerning some of their other classmates. ' a Hwhat ever happened to Kenneth Homan?n Donald asked Glenn. nwhy, didn't you know that Kenny and Lester Gerwig are the managers of a farm implement store right here in Omaha?n Vivian had a question to ask too. nwhere are those two Maryland maids?n nF1ossie ' Norris is the owner ' of a beauty shop in ' Polo with Marie Hedrick as her as- I sistant, and we hear that Betty Williams is design- ing hats for Karcile Gesin who has a millinery shop in New York City. Those two certainly get separated, didn't they?n UI guess you boys have done quite a bit of traveling, haven't you?H Donald said. Uwe sure have,N Victor answered, Hwe've been in almost every state in the Union. 'By the way, we ran across one of our old friends, LaVerne Peters, not far from home. He is a soda fountain clerk in Rockford, Illinois.U Vivian and Donald then arrived in Omaha where they stopped for dinner at a very fashionable res- taurant. Here they found Betty Garman as the head waitress. nHow long have you been working here, Detty?U nTh1s makes my second year here and I like it very much. At first it seemed kind of lonely here, so far away from home, but a let of my old class- mates write me letters. I especially enjoy those from Lucille Wubbena. They certainly are interest- ing. You knew, didn't you, that she is a mission- ary in India now? Gene always comes to see me when the plane she is on stops over. She really gets around and knows where almost all of our old class- mates are. She says that Simon Schroeder is in the automobile business in Forreston and that Harold Birkholz is teaching school. That other Bailey- villeite, Vernon Abels, is a section foreman on the railroad. After eating dinner, Donald and Vivian wont back to the airport and continued on their journey. They went as far as Cheyenne, where they changed planes. While doing this, they met Jane Boguc who is traveling with an orchestra in which sho is solo violinist. They didn't have much time to talk but she told them that Ethel Long is giving accordian lessons in Haldane and Lois Blair is a secretary in " H' ' ' . the Douglas Aircraft Corporation in California. At this airport they also found that Dortha Vac Roskam was an instructor in women's flying. Dack on the plane Donald and Vivian talked about all these old classmates and Vivian mentioned that she had received a letter from Vildred Funk, who is working in a grocery store in Shannon. Tildred said in her letter that she sees Vinnie Ueegens sometimes. Winnie is married and living on a farm not far from Forreston. nwhere is Evelyn Jacobs, Vinnie's old pal, by now?n Donald asked. HOh, she's head librarian in a library in Salt Lake City. I was very much surprised when I heard this because you know we all thought that she was going to be a farmer's wife. I also heard that Inge Dalsheim is happily married and living in Freeport.U The next stop they found was to be Reno. They were very glad of this because they wanted to see the town that they had heard so much about. They were there only a short while when they ran into none other than Teddy Sehoon, a lawyer in that city. Vivian and Donald happened to think that they had found the whereabouts of almost all their grad- uating class of ten years ago so they asked Teddy if he knew anything about Ellsworth Lewis and Edwin Kilker, his pals in Forreston High School. HOh yes,n he said, nEllsworth is the owner of a large creamery and Edwin is working his way to the top, rather fast, in the wrestling profession. Vivian and Donald had to rush on to catch their plane and during the remainder of their journey dis- cussed all their classmates, of whom they had seen and heard. 3 THE CLASS WILL OF 1941 We, the Senior Class of the Forreston Com u- nity High School, Forreston, in the county of Ogle State of Illinois, in this year one thousand nine hundred and forty-one, being of sound mind and considering the uncertainty of our frail and tran- sitory lives, do therefore make, ordain, publish, and declare this to be our last Will and testament in manner and form as follows: I, Lois Blair, will my neatness and graceful poise to Louise Binkley.

And the juniors were off to another year of school with 57 members. This was four less than at the end of last year but one member was added at the opening of school and another at the beginning of the second semester. Early in the year the following officers were elected: President ---------- Gretchen Huntley Vice President ----- Marjorie Mertz Secretary ---------- Caroline Duitsman Treasurer -------- --Lois Devries First Semester Reporters---Mary Ellen Bisker and Mack Dison Second Semester Reporters--Gladys Swalve 'and Dwight Hayenga Class Sponsor ----- -Mr. McGuire In November Lois DeVries did not return to school and Virginia Mase was elected treasurer. Second prize was awarded to the juniors for their float on Sauerkraut Day. The float repre- sented a ship and was made in blue and white. The class play, NKid Colbyn was presented on November 22, and proved very successful. The final event of the year was the Junior- Senior Banquet which was held in May. As a whole the members, of the 1940-'41 junior class can look back on the year with various feel- ings of disappointment and satisfaction, these feel ings being the result of what they had done along the lines of scholarship and extra-curricular ac- tivities. 'Not all could be expected to reach the same goals, but backward glances and comparison of the first and last of the year should reveal some progress.

Ragsdale STUDENT BOARD While speeding along, let's see what the du- ties of the pilots are and who they were during the last year. The members of the student board might be re- ferred to as the pilots of the airplane. Presi- dents and vice-presidents of the various classes, plus the secretary of the senior class comprised this group. These pilots met to discuss the hang- ar activities and other business. The passengers were urged to give any suggestions to the pilots, who would bring their idea'up at the meetings. During the second semester, meetings were held weekly. Hr. Hasterson, head of the engineers, act- ed as the adviser. The pilots for the last year were: Seniors: Marcile Gesin Donald Buttel Flossie Norris Juniors: Gretchen Huntley Marjorie Hertz Sophomores: Doris DeVries Vada Mae Schoonhoven Freshmen: Louise Binkley Wava Gesin Last fall we stopped off at Krapes Park for a weiner roast. Shortly after that the younger set of passengers were initiated. .Early in February, an all high school skating party wrs held in Polo. It was decided to have class programs every month during the second semester for the entertainment of all travelers. With the cooperation of the passengers and the engineers, the pilots were able to carry on their work successfully. ITEUHWW ' SUHHHU fm. Fall gave opportunity to view interesting soft- ball games . Ulaoaaa I The 1940 F. c. H. s. I-'J Softball Roster was as fol- lows: Captain Alberts, again proved to be an important cog in the F. C. H. S. machine. He hurled some mighty fine games and was also the power hitter of the Fbrreston club. Alberts had as his receiver as good a catcher as he could wish forg Duitsman was a great hitter and a great catcher. Muller and Gronewold formed of Forreston's failed to show one finest Wkeystone combinationsu, but the power of the year before at the plate. Buttel was transformed from an out-fielder to first base and played very good ball at the Hinitial sackn. Birkholz played very good ball at third until an operation forced him out of action. This left a gap to be filled in the inner-defense but Ben Unangst took over third and handled the position in good style. Fbrreston ive out-fields in short-field defense in the showed flashes doing. Conkey presented one of the finest defens- it has seen in several seasons. Mase and Zimmerman in left-field gave good outer-garden. Conkey in center-field of the fielding he was capable of played his best ball in the latter part of the season when it was needed the most. The right-field position was Donald Ludwig who performed well uals served in at the plate. The following individ- the capacity of substitutes and should prove good prospects for the next season: Swalve, R. Duitsman, H. Ludwig, L. Brockmeier, Schell, and L. Duitsman. F. C. H. S. opened its season with 4 consecu- tive victories, we then proceeded to lose 5 games straight C2 of these by l runb, from here we went on to win 5 more games in succession. The Ashton game for the championship was a hard-fought affair with F. C. H. S. rallying in the closing stages of the contest to come from behind and win 9-8. The team had a fine spirit this sea- son as was shown in several games when they came from behind to win after defeat seemed certain. In the final game of the season F. C. H. S., Ogle County Champ played Dakota, winner of the Stephenson County Pennant. The game was played at Dakota on a wet, slippery diamond, thus making good playing almost impossible. The outcome was a de- feat for Forreston by the score of 9-4. The task of presenting a powerful team, both on defense and offense next season possibly will be considerably more difficult than it was this year as six regulars were lost by graduation. The six senior regulars on this year's team were: Captain Alberts. Buttel, Conkey, Mase, Duitsman, and Birkholz. The schedule with results was as follows: F. C. H. S. 6 vs. Stillman Valley 2 F. C. H. S. 5 vs. Franklin Grove 5 F. C. H. S. 10 vs. Pecatonica 9 F. C. H. S. 4 vs. Leaf River O Fo Co Ha So 1. V50 Ashton 2 Fo Ce H. So 5 V50 Sh3.I1I'lOI1 5 F. C. H. S. 4 vs. Stillman Valley 5 F. C. H.

However, it must not be for- igx . 8. ? ' C' gotten th t on February 4, the F. C. I-.

Sgxw wg At the outset of the l940-41 season the local wmv 'Ng varsity consisted of Muller, Buttel, Birkholz, .ig Gronewold, and Duitsman. But after a grand start this'H it Q team quintet failed to put forth with the real ability they possessed. Erratic ball handling and the attemp pxgk ting of so-called impossible shots led to their poor mark Conkey and Unangst were promoted to varsity positions. The F. C. L. S. reserves turned in a much better record than the varsity as they left the hardwood - victorious in better than 503 of their games. Their record might have been even better had they not lost squad members who at times were promoted to the first ,S 5 showing. Just after the season reached the half-way 'W E team. The reserve squad was composed of: Conkey. Unangst, Homan, Moring, BTOCkm6i6T, L. Duitsman, , Hiteman, ' 1 Earlenbaugh, D.

C. F. S. cindernen. He had every candidate for a track birth doing his very best possible, and if he didn't, he need not report for further practice sessions. If the participant takes this attitude, to do his best, fine track teams resultg and if not failure follows. Track was inaugurated with a triangular meet in which Forreston, Pearl participated.

' Again, this year two pupils were hosen from each class to serve on the Junior Journal staffs. Each semester a new staff was chosen so as to vary the news. These groups met once a week with the sponsor so as to plan the news for the following week's issue. 1 The elementary grades contributed a portion of the news for the Journal. The first semester staff was as follows: Editor-in-chief, Evelyn Jacobs Reporters ' Betty Williams Yvonne Frederick Ted Schoon Donald Gravenstein Mary Ellen Bisker Phyllis Kaney Mack Dison Herman Ludwig Typist, Marie Hedrick Those on the second semester staff were: Editor-in-chief, Lucille Wubbena ' Heporters A Vivian Bradley Bogene Meyer Ellsworth Lewis Ben Buisker Gladys Swalve Ruth Meyer Dwight Hayenga Donald Schell Ty Frances Gene Lang .L Miss Plagge was the sponsor for s r " both semesters' staffs. CUB REPORTER Other very interesting reading material on our trip was furnished by the Cub Reporter. Again this year, there were enough typing students interested to warrant the publication of this magazine which was initiated last year. Various staffs put out monthly editions. In addition, all those who had signed.up held meetings approximately every two weeks, when various topics such as, cutting stencils, use of styli and other things concerning magazine work were discussed. The Cub Reporter was a success again as it contained good reading material about occupations, and also humor, crossword puzzles, guessing games, etc. . Each month approximately one hundred twenty papers were distributed. Some were exchanged with other schools. The members of the Cub Reporter group for 1940 -1941 were: Betty Williams Flossie Norris Minnie Weegens Marjorie lbrtz Dorothy Heeren Margorie Lwers Marie Hedrick LaVonne Korf Virginia lmse Naomi Meiners lildred Ludwig Dorothy Burma Sponso I' Dorothy Stolzman Florence Ihm Caroline Duitsman Zelda McPherson Ethel Long Lois Blair Betty Dohse Gretchen Huntley Gladys Swalve Ora Black Viola Schoonhoven Vada the Schoonhoven Miss Plagge EHRUIHEH This,the l94l Cardinal summarizes or acts as a'diary of the trip of the year This is the fourth year book published by F.

Wubbena M Zimmerman W Hammond E Kilker KID COLBY One very interesting stop over on our trip was to the Junior class play HKid Colbyu presented on November 22 at the High School Gymnasium. The scene of the play took place in the office of August Bancroft. It was centered around HKid Colbyv who was Bancroft's son. He was a fighter much to the disapproval of his father. He fell in love with his father's secretary, Eileen McPherson, became involved with a chorus girl and later took up fighting again to help Eileen's brother, Billy, who had been in an accident. The five stenographers also played very interesting parts with Teddy and Eileen finally planning on getting married and Billy on the road to recovery. As a whole the play was very successful. The play cast was as follows: August Bancroft, president of the Con- solidated Manufacturing company--Dwight Hayenga Teddy Bancroft CKid Colbyb, his son,-- Wayne Hammond Jerry, Kid Colby's trainer--Harold Smith Eileen McPherson, Bancroft's secretary-- Florence Ihm Billy McPherson, Eileen's brother, office boy in Bancroft's office--Victor Bradley Dr. Dalton, surgeon--Bill Taber A Messenger Boy, himself--Gerald Fager Marie DeLang, a chorus girl--Virgigia se Miss Kelly, a nurse--Marian Moring Lydia, Julia, Iona, Isobel, Geraldine, stenographers in Bancroft's employ-- Zelda McPherson, Dorothy Heeren, Gretchen Huntley, Mary Ellen Bisker, Naomi Meiners First radio announcer--hmlton Zimmerman Second radio announcer--Donald Ludwig CH t fm, Early in December an important stop was made at the senior Carnival. There was a good attendance and e ---- -- , seemingly all present had a NK 7' good time. However, perhaps unfavorable weather and other entertai ents re- duced the crowd somewhat. The Carnival differed this year from previous years due to the fact that the senior class took entire charge and had little assistance from lower classmen. The free entertainment went over big with the crowd. It consisted of music by the Four C's, accordion bandg tap dancing by G. W. Smith, and acts by a magician, Mr. Wertzel. All this was much appreciated. Side show entertainment consisted of pictures shown by Rev. Mertz, wrestling by the F. F. A. boy and three playlets presented by a group of junior girls. Concessions were arranged along two sides of the gym. Here most anything usually found at a carnival might be secured. Variety ranged from balloons to hot dogs. Perhaps one of the most valuable results of the carnival was the training which it gave the seniors in putting on an affair of this kind. Getting up early Saturday morning to clean up wasn't much fun, but most of the class were on hand at the ' appointed hour. S , lg , ,ll GPERETTA The passengers enjoyed the stopover at the mlsical comedy, UThe Lady of the Terracen. Ellsworth Lewis took the part of a young Irish nobleman, Sir Gerald Craughmont, The part of Ger- ald's uncle, Squire Michael, was taken by Donald Schell. Donald Buttel acted as a wealthy American, lun John Chandler. Ruth Manus carried the role of Clare, John's daughter. Doris Devries as Lady Mary, had no speaking parts but sang on the terrace at midnight. Good comedy was furnished by two Irish servants and by Sir Clarence, an Englishman, who thought he was deeply in love with Gera1d's sister, Peggy. Gerald Duitsman handled the role of Sir Clarence, while Louise Binkley was Peggy. Lynn Duitsman'as Dennis O'Hara, Ermalee Doherty as Molly O'Hara, and Ethel Long as Lady Stanford, all carried their parts well. Zelda McPherson, Kenneth Homan, Harold Birk- holz, and Delbert Rademaker took the parts of the' cook, butler, valet, and bootblack, Erma Schmitt, Leilaigorf, Irma Wubbena, and Dorothy Burma, acted as ma s. There were three choruses, the Rose, the Moon, and the Irish Mixed Chorus. S ROSE CHORUS: Frances Gene Lang, Caroline Duitsman, Betty Garman, Jane Bogue, Norma Reynolds, Phyllis Kaney, Patricia Stoner, and Vivian Bradley. MOON CHORUS: Inge Dalsheim, Yvonne Fredericks, Mildred Ludwig, Evelyn Birkholz, Dorothy Heeren, Ruth Schmidt, Dorothy Lewis, Lavonne Korf, and Wava Gesin. IRISH MIXED CHORUS: Flossie Norris, Lucille Wubbena, Mary Ellen Bisker, Doris Maas, Gretchen Huntley, Lucille Daniels, Naomi Meiners, Marcile Gesin, Milford Alberts, Richard Fager, Wayne Moring, Mack Dison, Gerald Earlenbaugh, Delbert Rademaker, Kenneth Homan, and Harold Birkholz. Q CUIUEST fm, Gne of our chief engi- '-e neers, Mr. Poe, reported in the fall that the basket- ' ball boys needed new suits. ""'-' , This problem was solved by , selling Crowell-Collier X magazine subscriptions. The contest was between the first morning classes. Each class had a secretary who reported how many subscriptions were sold each day. The Ag. boys won a desk clock which was presented to Mr. McGuire and an ice cream party was held for all of them. 'The clock was donated by the mag- azine company. The three high salesmen who sold the most subscriptions were Leila Korf, Craig Brattrud, and Norene Muller. They were each awarded a prize in money. Individually selected prizes were awarded to those who sold more than one subscription. Also, everyone who sold a subscription the first day was awarded a candy bar. Leila Korf our highest salesman was honored by having her picture in the Star section of the 1941-42 Crowell-Collier sales booklet, The gross profits were 3458.75. Last year they were 3375. Last year'our school ranked second in the State of Illinois, being topped by a school of three hundred enrollment. Besides making enough money for basketball suits we had enough left for four basketballs. , The contest gave very good ex- perience in sales- manship.

' L, Vesper services were held one Sunday of every month, beginning with January. During the basket- ball season the band played at all the home games. At the beginning of the second semester, they started to work on the contest numbers. Since the school was in class C, the required number was The Crusaders. Broica Overture, required for class B, was chosen as their selected number. Pompous Ha- jor was used as the warm-up march. Everyone set- tled down and really worked to keep the good record which the band has held during the past years. Since the band had the honor of going to the National contest last year, it would not have been necessary to play in the district to qualify for the State. However, they did play, but did not compete with the other bands. The F. C. H. S. band acted as the host to bands and glee clubs around this section on March 29, at the district. Churches in the community were used for the vocal solos, choruses, and banquets. Every- one in the community helped to put the contest over successfully. Mt.

This is it: Don't become impatient when you are asked time and time again: HSay, when are the Annuals coming out?H Hwas my class picture good? Which one did you like?H UYou ought to put this in the Annual.H HTO when are you going to dedicate it? I won't tell a soul.H And so forth and so on, Here's hoping you enjoy the Annual for years to come, and forget the bad points of it.
