Onne A. DeWall, President
The Forreston Community High School, Dis-
trict No. 219, was organized in the spring of 1937.
The five board members elected at that time were:
Onne A. DeWall, Earl J. Link, Herman Frey,
Walter Kaney, and Clarence Rademaker. J. E.
Fisher was employed to serve as clerk of the
board. Two of the original five are still mem-
bers: Onne A. DeWall and Earl Link. Oscar Viet-
meier has been a member since August of 1940,
when he was appointed to succeedClarenceRade-
maker, who moved to Polo. Warren Kaney was
elected in April, 1948 to succeed his father,Wal-
ter, who retired.
J. E. Fisher served as clerk until April, 1944,
when he retired. Mr. Fisher had served on For-
reston School Boards for 44 years, from April
1900 through April 1944. During the last seven
years of that remarkable period he served as
secretary to both local school boards. B. H.
Unangst then served a ten year period as secre-
tary. In 1954 Mr. Unangst was succeeded by
Gerald R. Duitsman, the present secretary.
In 1954 a state law became effective whereby
two members were added to make a seven man
board. At that April election, Warren Kaney was
re-elected to a three year term and two new mem-
bers were electedg Paul Moring and Howard Scott.
These seven, with the help of the Citizens' Com-
mittee and a number of auxiliary committees suc-
cessfully guided the work toward a successful
election in October, 1954, and the new high school
that is now completed.
Glen McGraw was elected in 1956 to take the
place of Herman Frey. Edward Ackerman re-
new , , ,A
placed Warren Kaney who retired in April, 1957.
This spring Oscar Vietmeier plans to retire af-
ter 18 years of faithful service. These men have
given much time and effort to handling the many
problems of operating the school.

This year again we had a perfect home-floor record. Last year we went 17 games without a defeat,
and this year we added 11 more victories, making a total of 28 wins with 0 losses in 2 years. Winnebago
came closest to spoiling our record, allowing us to win by only 1 point, 53-52.
We also had the best record that the school has ever had. From the beginning of the season we won
22 games before being defeated by Winnebago 44-43. No other team in the history of F.C.H.S. has won 22
games from the beginning of the year without a defeat. Also, no other team in the history of F.C.H.S. had
a record of 30 wins and 2 losses for the entire year. The old record 29-2 was set in 1956.
Forreston varsity has won 4 first place trophies and 1 second place trophy this year. We won first
place in Mt. Carroll Tourney, Rt. 72 Tournament, Rt. 72 Conference Championship and the Regional Tour-
nament. Our second place came in West Rockford Sectional behind the state's No. 2 prep team, Rock Falls,
against whom we made a very good showing. At the end of the first quarter, we were behind 19-13, at the
half, we were only behind 33-30, and at the end of the third quarter, we were on the short end of a 52-50
score. Things didn't quite go the way we wished in the fourth quarter, and the game ended with Rock Falls
77 and F.C.H.S. 60.

On October 8 and 9, the junior class presented a three act
comedy. "The Great Big Doorstep."The juniors did a wonderful
job presenting this play, thus proving their value to their school
and its student body.
"The Great Big Doorstep" is the story of a very poor fa-
mily, which in spite of its poverty, has something to live for. The
Commodore, the lord and master of his home, espectantly waits
for Fate to provide a house to match their "Great Big Doorsteph,
The characters of the play were as follows:
