Winter is gone and spring is here The brightest season of all the year.
Snow on the hillside melting fast The season of winter now is past.
Old King Winter has lost his hold He now returns to the North so cold.
Over our fair land he’ll reign no more
For spring-time has driven him from the door.
The singing robin has now returned His form can everywhere be discerned.
He sings all day in true felt glee Oh that God has given us lives so free.
We, the class of nineteen twenty-five, the first to complete the four-year course in our new building, sincerely dedicate this book to Mr. Guy Tucker and Mrs. Grace Gordon Wilson, as a partial expression of our gratitude to them for their untiring efforts in our behalf, and for guiding us to our goal.
The Frankfort Community High School was organized in August, 1919. This organization brought together two High Schools, the West Frankfort High School and the Frankfort Heights High School. The enrollment for the year 1919-20 was 147 students. Eight teachers gave their full time to the work and two gave part of their time.
The enrollment this year is more than 600 and twenty-four teachers are employed.
When the school was organized it was accredited at the University of Illinois with sixteen credits. Since then subjects have been added until the state university gives admission credit to 32 ' S units of work. Also, this year the school was admitted as a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. This membership means that the school is meeting a high standard of organization, preparation of teachers and teaching skill. It signifies that the scholarship attainment of its graduates is of high rank.
The school endeavors to prepare the student for his future life. Economically it adds $33,000 to his earning capacity. It al o assures him of entering into occupations and fields of labor that he could not follow without his high school education. A training in citizenship is received by pursuing courses in history and civics. This civic training is heloed by his contact with his fellow students and teachers. He learns to subordinate himself for the good of the group. Social problems are met which help him to meet the practical situations that he will encounter in after school life. Moral standards are met which helps to develop a conscience of right living. His health and physical privileges are studied so that he may be acquainted with the laws of healthful living and physical development. While in high school he is surrounded with religious precepts and examples which make for spiritual growth.

Due to the good judgment and intelligence of the supporters of the F. C. H. S. they have endeavored to select in the personnel of the Board, men who represent the various phases of our community life; men who have an untiring interest in education and the best interests of the Patrons of our school; men of broad minds who meet and face squarely the issues of the school, whether it be criticism or commendation. Because of their interest in our interests we are bound to say they are striving for the advancement of the school in connection with the civic pride and advancement of the township and county from which we draw our constituency.
We have a principal to plan and initiate effective legislation; a banker to execute the plans; two business men to see that the specialized parts of the plan fit adequately into their respective places; and two farmers who manipu late the tools with skillful dexterity and keep in operation the machine that winds out the finished product that the world is proud of and usually are classified in the world of achievements as graduates.

THE EXCURSION THROUGH HIGH SCHOOL
OF THE CLASS OF ’25
In September of 1921, one hundred and twenty students entered into the new station (new building of F. C. H. S.) and signed up for the excursion to be taken on the train of High School. This trip consisted of four stations. Our fare was passing grades or credits earned in four or more subjects between stations, which would number to sixteen or more at the end of the trip; at which time we were to receive as a reward for completing the journey, a diploma. The engineer of the train was Mr. F. A. Wilson, who explained the trip and its requirements. His assistants were the conductors or the teachers.
When these one hundred and twenty passengers boarded this train, which passed through Freshmanland, the surroundings were so amazingly different that they were very shy and afraid. To add to this, the class on the preceding train telegraphed taunts and jokes to them and called them "green.” This was a brilliant and peppy bunch and being encouraged by Mr. Tucker and Miss Reder, these upper classmen's attempts to make fun of them were unsuccessful. To aid in the financial and other problems of this progressive body were George Chaniot, President; Carl Williams, Vice-President; Marie Macoby, Treasurer; and Harriet Gladders, Secretary.
During this trip, of course, the group was given paper and pencils and told to write what they had observed during specified times of the trip (in other words, exams). Some, having gone only for pleasure, failed to observe anything and because they were unable to pay their fare were put off. Others left at the numerous junctions of Marriage and Work. Still, the train was well equipped and went on in this same manner until June. At this point, called Sophomoreland, several changes in the train were discovered to be necessary and all the passengers were left to do as they pleased while the preparation for the continued trip were being made. During the time between June and September, many found matrimony and other vocations more appealing than this journey and left. Others obtained transfers to other towns, but completed their trip.
When the train was ready, in September of 1922, to begin its way through Sophomoreland. the passengers were more fitted and better acquainted with the necessities. Again the
I’ai c Thirty-threeengineer advised each one as to what he must accomplish during the time spent in this territory. There were one hundred and thirty this time. Many passengers boarded the train and showing their transfers were accepted by the group as fellow-men. Thus the journey began. In this territory a greater number than had hitherto gone, before or since, left the train at the junctions of Marriage. The advisory body for this year was: Walter Loving, President; Harriet Gladders. Vice-President; Florence Crain. Treasurer, and Harold Harrison, Secretary, with Miss Grace Gordon and Mr. Tucker as faculty advisors.
Along about Christmas time of this year, they decided it was necessary to have a little entertainment, so as to be in shape for the approaching quiz on their observations. This entertainment resulted in a party. Then again they entered the previous routine. The quiz passed and some, being unable to pay the fare required, were put off to wait for the next train. Time passes quickly on this train and again the quiz passed and June came, also the third station called Juniorville. The same vacation was given and again preparations were begun for the third part of the journey. As usual many left and many were transferred. The governing body of this year was: Harriet Gladders. President; Florence Crain, Vice-President; George Taylor. Treasurer; and Truman Calhoun, along with Mr. Tucker and Miss Gordon. Changes in the instructions for the running of the train were explained to the passengers and the train proceeded. Ninety-two ambitious people took this trip. As before, everything went along smoothly. About the middle of the territory they needed more finances and thus put on another play, ‘‘Fifty-Fifty,’’ which met with great success. This money was used to serve a banquet for the Seniors who stopped their train and for the first time recognized these passengers as human beings. It was a real banquet, with plenty of toasts, eats and jokes. Then their trip through Juniorland was completed and they prepared themselves for the next part of the excursion through Seniorland, watching the passengers of the train ahead of theirs, who were getting ready to enter the business world.
As September again approached, there were sixty-eight passengers who remained to complete the excursion. They now turned to telegraph to the train behind them the same taunts and jokes which had been handed to them. They were
Their officers on this trip were Ellsworth Wilson. President; George Taylor, Vice-President; Harriet Gladders, Secretary; and Vesta Harper, Treasurer. This year only one quiz was given as it was the reward for so many years’ hard work, not to be compelled to show their ignorance just before they left the terminal. For a diversion for this time, a party was
1‘agc Thirty-fourheld and everyone enjoyed it. Another play was put on.
Green Stockings, and their almost famous actors and actresses once more drew a hearty applause from the audience. As they neared the terminal they used the money to give a Senior-Faculty banquet, to show their appreciation of their unending struggles with them—the passengers. Their journey was at an end.
June is here. We now are ready to enter the grand domain called LIFE. Some of us will take a branch line to the Business World and Work, while others will board the train of another branch line called College, the latter being a duplication of the High School Line, but more advanced.
We know that this class has art and talent and just naturally being bright along with these other accomplishments, we will be an honor to any community and F. C. H. S. We also wish to express our sincere appreciation of the help and advice given to us during our trip by Mr. Tucker and Mrs. Grace Gordon Wilson.

UNDERSTUDY FOR VALENTINO
Until the rehearsals for the Sen-! ior play, “Green Stockings.” in 1925, his excessive ability to perform on the stage was hidden. Now George Chaniot is the understudy for Rudolph Valentino. The experiment has proved very sue- I cessful, in fact Rudy had better be on the watch-out or his “double” ' will become more popular than he. |

By Everett McKee
This is the hundredth edition of this novel. It has made a big hit throughout the country. It is a book full of adventure and very appealing.
Following are some extracts from the popular novel:
“The jungles are caused by the warm air and the rain and the sunshine. The air is very hot and damp and often very dry” . . . .
“It isn’t always wise for a man or anybody else to go into a jungle because the animals are not acquainted with you and are not always real friendly. That is. some of them aren’t. Some are too friendly. For instance, ihe boa-constrictor. He is so friendly he just wraps his arms around your neck whether he knows you or not” ....

orl '-Hi neJUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
One golden day in the fall of nineteen hundred and twenty-two we crossed the threshold of F. C. H. S. to start upon our work as Freshmen. Although nature had painted every leaf a golden brown, a bright red, or a fiery yellow, we were as green as the grass in June. The long corridors, the numerous class-rooms, the jeers of the upper classmen, all served to confuse us and we found ourselves entering the wrong class-rooms and making various other mistakes that made us often wish ourselves safely back within the reach of mother’s apron strings. But we kept our heads up and soon found ourselves sinking into the routine of high school life with the ease of those well acquainted with it. After electing class officers and advisors we presented two plays, “The Charm School,” and "Winter Garden," both being very successful. They were produced under the supervision of Misses Loomis and Spenser.
After passing two breathless, exciting, fearful, terrifying semester exams we ended our roles as Freshmen.
In September, nineteen twenty-three, we enrolled as Sophomores. Well, Solomon didn’t have anything on us—we were too wise to let old Sol surpass us.
We elected class officers and advisors and then set about to do some entertaining. First a party was given which was highly enjoyed by everyone present. Then, with the help of Miss Ruth Briscoe and Mr. B. E. Montgomery, who were our efficient class advisors, we gave a Class Carnival. Needless to say this was also a huge success.
In the glorious fall of twenty-four we were enrolled as Juniors. We set out upon the term with the determination to work and to work hard. First we elected class officers and sponsors. Then we selected and began preparing our Junior play, "The Rejuvenation of Aunt Mary," a farce in three acts. It was produced under the very able direction of Miss Agnes Sleadd, one of our class advisors. It was a roaring success.
During the football season we sold refreshments at the Athletic field to raise funds for our banquet.
Owing to the recent departure of Miss Sleadd we have selected Miss Grace Stewart to assist Mr. Paul Smith in the work of helping us plan several other class activities.
We, the class of twenty-six, will do our best to fill the place which will be left by the Seniors, and we wish to make our Alma Mater proud of us in the year to come.

Page Fifty-fourTHE GLORIOUS CLASS OF ’27
We Sophomores this year are a little crazy about ourselves, and with good reason. Although a young class, being next to the Freshman babies in all their greenness, we came back to school in full force, and with our year of polish behind us were able to make sufficiently sarcastic comments on the terrible greenness of our unworthy successors, the Freshmen.
Socially we started off with the old time pep which we have never lost and never will. After the election of Mr. and Mrs. Luce as Class Advisors we staged a hike to the First Dam. That is, it would have been a hike if enough cars hadn’t come to take us all out and back, but as it was. all the hiking was done after our arrival, and in search of sticks on which to roast the weiners and marshmallows. When all the pickles and buns and things were gone, there was some music from the Portable "Vic” and some songs around the camp fire, while the marshmallows became crisp and brown on the outside and all creamy and gooey inside. That is, those which didn't sputter away in bluish flame.
After everyone was more or less dead tired from the active games that followed we all went wearily homeward saying what a fine time we had had. That is, those of us who had taken part in the fun.
This party was about the first of October, and was followed by other gatherings celebrating the various holidays; the Thanksgiving Party, Nov. 30, in the Gym. and the Christmas Party, Dec. I 8, with almost every Sophomore present and all kinds of entertainment—the climax of the fun coming with the arrival of Santa Clause (?) and the distribution of the presents, which were all of the noise-making variety. We all well remember the racket that was made. This party, too, was held in the Gym and the decorations were of the usual Christmas colors and with an electric-lighted tree made a pleasing effect. We plan a number of Spring picnics and possibly a play to ward off attacks of the seasonal “Fever" and thus keep us full of the usual pep.
Page Fifty-fiveBesides being the most active class socially, we are right there with the athletes, too. What with “Walker,” “Lefty, “Musty,” “Dux." “Toe Nails," and "Dune" on the first ten in Basket Ball, and “Cowboy," "Feet" Simmons and a half-dozen others out for Football last Fall, and the dozen or so Trackmen we are putting out, when they talk about Red Bird Athletics we feel thrilled, and can join in, because we feel we're doing our bit.
In Inter Class Activities we hope at least to equal if not surpass our last year's record of 2nd in Basket Ball Tournament, and under the coaching of our Advisor. Mr. Luce, we have an active class team which will, we feel, hand surprises to many of its opponents when tournament play begins.
We have, too, a Dramatic Club, all our own—the Masquers—whose membership is limited to Sophomores. They have social meetings at which various one-act plays are given, and the talk runs along the line of plays and players. This is sponsored by Mrs. Luce. Then we have members in the Orchestra, the Operetta Cast, and in almost everything. Name the organization, and if there aren't prominent Sophs, in it, the membership laws exclude us.
All in all—some class—that of 1927.
The Glorious Sophomores.

I'ayc Sixty-twoFRESHMAN CLASS HISTORY
On Sept. 6. 1924, our Freshmen class came to school prepared to show the other classes that we were not as green as we looked.
At our first class meeting we elected Miss Briscoe and Mr. Hall as class advisors. We also elected the following for class officers: Ward Dimmick. President: Emma Coleman. Vice-President; l aura Keele, Treasurer: Otto Russel. Secretary, and Helen Patchett, Editor.
The first fund that the class raised was by having a box supper.
The class is well represented in athletics. In Reginald Barrett we have an athlete of unusual ability. He has already earned a letter in Football and from appearances he will earn another in Basket Ball. The Freshman Basket Ball team is also showing great promise, and will give the other classes a run in the class tournament.
As yet the class has nothing to boast of but it still has three more years in which to show "their stuff."

CAP AND BELL DRAMATIC CLUB
A dramatic club was organized this year to further interest in drama and literature in general. Especial interest was also shown for the Intellectual contest held early this Spring. Several members won first place in the district tryout.
Meetings have been held twice each month, consisting of a program and business session. One-act plays and programs have been successfully produced before the high school. One of the best of these was the Christmas program just before our Christmas vacation.
A kid party for all the members was given just before Christmas and a Valentine party in February were loads of fun.
Fifty members take part in the club, which is sponsored by the three teachers. Miss Briscoe, Miss Stewart and Miss Pope.
Tryouts are held each semester for new members and early in January five new ones were fully initiated into the inner circle of "Cap and Bell.”
Page Sixty-sevenHOME ECONOMIC CLUB
The Home Economic Club was organized in October, I 924. The purpose of the club is to promote a deeper interest in Home Economics, to encourage good fellowship, unity of thought and action among the students, and to further in every way possible the educational interests of the community.
The club consists of about fifty members, including the officers, which are as follows: Pres., Gladys Racey; Vice-Pres.. Elma Coleman; Sec., Laura Keele; Treas., Carmen Ollar; Reporter, Thelma Rushing; Club Sponsors, Beulah Whitman, Leona Guirl and Myra Jane Whitlock.
The club has its regular meetings once a month at the High School. The club is divided into three groups named as follows: Group one. Program; Group two. Entertainment; Group three. Refreshment. These groups are rotated so no group has the same place twice in succession.
During the year a number of parties were given. A Hallowe'en. Christmas, Valentine, Hard Luck and Backward party. At the Christmas party we had a tree, and names were exchanged so that everyone present received a gift. Many enjoyable games were played. Some of them were contests after which prizes were given to the winners. After the social hour dainty refreshments were served. At the Valentine party a little three-act play was given entitled, "Mother Wise and Foolish Children." At the Backward party everyone was dressed backward. The games were played backward, and the refreshments were served in the same manner. On Washington’s birthday a Colonial Tea was served for the Mothers. In May the club gave a banquet in honor of their last meeting in the school year.

THE DEBATING CLUB
A murmur ran from pupil to pupil, “Tonight is the first meeting of the debating club.” All prospective debaters were on hand at the appointed time, each anxious to try his skill as a debator. Under the guidance of Mr. Mark Thompson and Paul Smith, organization immediately began. Officers were nominated and the final results showed: Pres., Paul Randolph; Sec., Leitha Burkitt; Treas., Wilma Tanazzi.
One of the first acts of the club was to secure a dual debate with Benton. The subject was “Resolved: That the Electoral College Should Be Abolished. ’ Tryouts began and the teams selected. The affirmative team composed of Leitha Burkitt. Gladys Austin and Truman Calhoun met the Benton negative at home. The negative tearp composed of Merle Rhineholtz, Wilma Tanazzi, and Joe Odle journeyed to Benton and under the guidance of Mr. Thompson locked horns with Benton’s affirmative team.
Although both teams were defeated the club remained undaunted and began working for the debates of the triangular debating league. The question for this debate was “Resolved: That the Philippines Should Be Granted Their Independence as Soon as Possible, Within Two Years.’’ Tryouts began and material was collected. The affirmative team for this debate was composed of Gladys Austin, Leitha Burkitt and Paul Randolph. The negative team was Merle Rhineholtz, Helen Kuykendall and Enid Martin.

THE PEP CLUB
The Pep Club was organized Tuesday. Oct. 21. 1924. The meeting was called to order by Miss Giurl, the officers and committees being appointed.
Several things were decided by the members of the club. Ruth Harmon and Gleason Lee, our yell leaders, were sent to Champaign. The club decided to give parties for the football and basket ball boys.
Our first entertainment was a kid party given at the home of Pearl Koons. Pearl proved to be a very good hostess.
Lorena Bagley, President of the club, gave a Christmas party, Dec. 19, 1924. The girls exchanged presents and spent the evening playing games and having contests.
The next entertainment was a leap year party given by Mary Jane Morse, December 29. Both girls and boys were requested to wear overalls.
The Masquers is a Literary Society organized by the Freshmen of ’27. Miss Mae Coy suggested the organization of this club, and sponsored it the first year. All Freshmen making C-}- or above in her English I classes and passing in three subjects were eligible. It was organized in the first part of November, 1923, for the purpose of interesting pupils in better English.
The following officers were elected: Pres., Joe Mondino; Vice-Pres., Clifford Barger; Secretary, Maude Creek, and Ray Lamont as Treasurer.
A number of plays were given at the meetings and one in Assembly. “Nevertheless” was appreciated very much by the student body. This put more pep into the club.
About twenty-four comprised the club during the year and received one-fourth credit for their work.
At the beginning of the school year in 1924 we had a new problem, as our sponsor. Miss Mae Coy, had not returned for this year. We had to elect a new sponsor, so Mrs. Ann Barnes Luce, the English 11 teacher, is our sponsor for this year.
The new officers elected for this year, 1924-1925, were: Pres., Maude Creek; Vice-President, Ralph Eadie, and Myra Stone, Secretary.
The first social event of the year was a “Masquerade Party” at the home of our Vice-President, Ralph Eadie, at Orient. Everyone had a good time, about thirty being present.

Spanish was taught for the first time in F C. H. S. last year when Mrs. Wilson under took this class, mostly on her own responsibility. In the latter part of the second semester “El Circulo Castellano (The Spanish Circle) was organized. The purpose of this organization was to encourage the students to take more interest in Spanish. The club met once a week.
Most of the members who made up the club last year graduated, so that only eleven remained. However, these eleven, undaunted by such a small number, went ahead and icorganized the club, Steve Brondos was elected President and Leitha Burkitt, Secretary-treasurer. Friday of each week was decided upon as the club s meeting day. On that day we had parties, games, and recitations.
A party was given at Harriet Gladder’s home and another at Mrs. Wilson’s, for the purpose of encouraging the club. Although small, the club made great headway and boasts of great results, such as would result from such a club. The success of the club is attributed to the wonderful sponsorship of Mrs. Wilson. It will be a sad departure when ten of the members graduate in June.

The Sodalitas Latina (Latin Club) was organized at the beginning of the year. Only students taking Latin 2 were permitted to join the club. At the first meeting the following officers were elected: Pres.. Tilford Witcher; Sec'y-Treas., Lorena Bagley.
The purpose of the club was to encourage and stimulate interest in Latin. This was the first time that a Latin club was organized in the High School. The club's motto is "Ne Fronte Cride; don’t trust to appearance."
Several parties and plays have been given.

The Junior play of 1924 was probably the greatest success of the year. All the essentials of a good play were used: A good play, a good cast, a good coach and hard work. This could not possibly go unrewarded. The cast was as follows:
Paul Greene, an author Henry Brown, an artist Patrick O’Malley, a janitor Cap’, a wanderer Smudge, a valet Mrs. Podge, a landlady Sophie Bland, a dancer May Dexter, an enthusiast Mrs. Hawley, an art collector Josephine, a seeker
Harold Harrison - Ivan Lee Steve Brondos Truman Calhoun Ellsworth Wilson Harriet Gladders Vesta Harper Lorena Bagley Florence Crain Gladys Austin
This little play of the love affairs of an artist and an author, their rise to fame, the irixup in their love affairs, which finally ended happily, received the hearty reception it so well deserved through the mutual hard work of the cast and the coach, Mrs. Wilson. The proceeds went to the Junior-Senior Banquet.
Page Seventy-fiveTHE BAND
The High School Band was organized this year with thirteen pieces. Solo Cornets. Ray Dove, Rudolph Brock; First Cornet. Geo. Sinks; Alto, Junior Syfert. Lyndell Boner; Trombone, Gus Tolbert; Baritone. Glen Henson; Base Drum, Cecil Sanders; Snare Drums, Emmett Dunn; Clarinets, Walker Jones, Nado Burkitt.
The Band made practically all the football trips and played for most of the basket ball games. The Band and Orchestra are under the direction of B. E. Montgomery.
The F. C. H. S. Orchestra has been in existence practically ever since the High School has been organized. The Orchestra has made quite a bit of progress this year, playing a medium class of music and some of the more difficult popular selections. The number increases every year. This year we have six first violins, six second violins, three cornets, one horn, one trombone, drums, two clarinets, one banjo and one piano.

I 2 V7
With nine regulars lost through graduation the year before. Coach "f-ronchy" Wroughton took up his responsibilities and proceeded to whip the prospects into shape.
In the opening games the team looked good, but the season's grind and inexperience of the team as a whole began to show its effect. Captain Buren Waller, a triple threat man, could only play in three games because of injuries. Injuries to first one, then another, was the chief instrument in the team’s poor showing as a whole.
The Seniors lost by graduation are:
Buren Waller, Fullback.
Harold Harrison, Quarterback. Carl Williams, Center.
Steve Brondos, Guard.
Harold McCullough, Guard. Truman Calhoun, Tackle.
The following men received football letters:
Buren Waller William Walker Everett Mitchell Truman Calhoun Ralph Roberts Harold McCullough William Golden Andy Hiduk
Harold Harrison Tilford Witcher Swin Simpson Reginald Barrett Everett Lockman Steve Brondos Carl Williams Clyde Mitchell Tony Lavish
Page Eighty-three"FRENCHY" WROUGHTON. Coach.
Coming from Eureka College, in the northern part of the state with a wonderful record as end on the ‘‘Little 19” conference team, he immediately settled down to a hard task. Being a new coach was a hard proposition with nine regulars lost the year before through graduation. Great things are expected of him and his teams in the future.
G. E. TUCKER. Assistant Coach.
Much credit goes to Assistant Coach Tucker. Always with the team during practice, encouraging, helping to build a winning team and always there with the right spirit, he well deserves mention.
BUREN “BRUNO” WALLER. Fullback. Captain.
Bruno played a wonderful game as long as he was in it, but injuries kept him from displaying his real worth. He was the best passer and punter in the “Little Ten” conference. He was always good for three yards when most needed and as a safety man he was one of the best.
I'age Eighty-fourEVERETT ‘'FRITZ” MITCHELL, Halfback, Captain-Elect.
Fritz, right halfback for the past two years, is another triple threat man. His speed in running the ends, his smashes off tackle, were the things that made him a feared man by all opponents, and a great factor to the team.
WILLIAM WALKER. Halfback.
Walker, playing his first year on the Varsity, was one of the most brilliant players of the “Little Ten." His specialty being 90-yard runs. Being a Sophomore, he has two more years to beat “Red” Grange's record.
HAROLD "IKEY" HARRISON. Quarterback.
"Ikey" was a versatile player, a dangerous defensive man as well as a good offensive man. He was used as an end and then shifted to quarterback. His specialty was catching forward passes.
Page Eighty-fiveCLYDE ‘ MUSTY" MITCHELL. Right End.
This was "Musty's" first year on the Varsity but he played his position like an old timer. He was the best forward pass grabber and tackier on the team. He has two more years to make a name for himself.
TILFORD "COWBOY" WITCHER. Left End.
Like young Lochinvar, Cowboy came out of the West to secure a position on the team. He held down the position at end like a veteran, being especially good on the defense. His tackling was another good feature. He has two more years to be a factor in our future team's success.
SWIN SIMPSON. Left Tackle.
Swin, playing left tackle, has for the past season played a most consistent game. Because of his power to analyze and break up plays, he was of great value.
Page Eighty-sixEVERETT •‘LEFTY” LOCKMAN. Right Tackle
Lefty, because of his weight and speed, proved to be a stone wall on the defense. Opponents didn’t try the side of the line that “Lefty” was on more than once. On the offense he was equally good, opening large gaps in the opponent’s line every time a play was called through him.
TONY LAVISH. Left Guard.
Tony, a small man to be a guard, held down his position in a flawless manner. When on the defense he could pile up a whole line, and he could be depended on to get the man. Tony is a Sophomore and has two more years to become one of the best guards in the "Little Ten" conference.
STEVE BRONDOS, Right Guard.
Although this was Steve's first year at football he immediately secured a berth at guard. At this position he proved to be a veritable stone wall on the defense. His blocking and breaking through the line was done in fine style.
Page Eighty-sevenCARL "BIG BOY" WILLIAMS. Center.
“Big Boy” always played up to the standard. On the defense he would consistently break through the opposing line to down a runner. Being a dead tackier he always got his man. On the offense, his passes back from center always came straight to their mark. “Big Boy” was a big asset to the team of '24.
REGINALD BARRETT. Fullback.
Due to injuries to Captain Waller. Barrett got his chance to win his letter. He played his position like a veteran despite the fact he is only a Freshman. He could hit the line, and he was a good defensive man. Having three more years, he should prove to be a tower of strength for our future teams.
ANDY H1DUK. Quarterback.
Andy was one of the most consistent men on the squad, always ready to go in the game at end or any backfield position. He proved to be a very valuable man to the team. He was a great safety man and could return punts. He is a Sophomore, and has two more years to make the best quarterback in Southern Illinois.
Page Eighty-eightRALPH ROBERTS. End.
Ralph was another consistent man who played in a majority of the games. He could sure grab the passes right out of the air. He could stop the opponents' end runs and was a dead tackier. Ralph will be back next year and he will make somebody step for a place on the team.
TRUMAN CALHOUN. Tackle.
Calhoun was an extraordinary player, not very heavy for a tackle, but he could sure smash up those plays and he was a deadly tackier. He was equally good on the offense, opening holes in the opponent’s line when the play was coming through that side.
HAROLD "DOODLES" McCULLOUGH, Guard.
Doodles was a very valuable man to have on any team, weighing around 180 pounds he made every ounce count when he was opening a hole. On the defense he could sure pile up the opponents' line.
Page Eighty-nineWILLIAM “BILL” GOLDEN, Guard.
Bill was the smallest man on the squad, weighing close to 240 pounds, he proved to be a tower of strength in the line. He was fairly fast and possessed a knack of analyzing the opponents’ plays and was always in the right spot to break them up. Bill has another year to help build up a real team.

Page NinetyBh5KITHhi-i-E. W. EBBLER, Coach.
This year was the fourth consecutive year that Coach Ebbler has turned out a winning basket ball team. With a record like this it is no wonder that Mr. Ebbler is highly respected as a coach. This year he took a practically green team and developed it into a team that was capable of winning the District Tournament. We sincerely hope that Coach Ebbler will continue his fine work with the future teams.
FLOYD WROUCHTON. Ass t Coach.
At the close of the football season. Coach Wroughton took over the post of assistant coach in basket ball. He was very capable and was a great help to Coach Ebbler and the team during the basket ball season. He developed a very good second team, that made the first team step to beat them. W’e hope that Mr. Wroughton will be with us next year.
EVERETT MITCHELL, Captain, Forward.
‘‘Fritz has been with the team for two years and still has one more year to play. His first year on the team he played running guard, but this year he was moved up to a forward position. His floor work and basket shooting made him a valuable man to the team.
Page Ninety-twoBURF.N "BRUNO" WALLER, Running Guard.
"Bruno" was one of the surprises of the year. Starting in at the back guard position. "Bruno” did so well that Coach moved him up to the running guard position because of his ability to make long shots. At running guard he played like a whirlwind for the rest of the season. His shooting and guarding was exceedingly good. He is the only man to be graduated from the team.
EVERETT "LEFTY" LOCKMAN. Center.
"Lefty" is another member of the team who has played two years and still has two more years to play. Everett was all over the floor all the time. His flashy playing and basket shooting were two good reasons why the team was so successful. Much is expected of "Lefty” in the future.
WILLIAM “BILL" WALKER. Forward.
Walker, playing his first year on the varsity, was one of the most consistent players on the squad. His floor work, including his dribbling under the basket, was nearly perfect. Having two more years to play, much is expected of him.
CLYDE ‘ MUSTY" MITCHELL. Forward.
“Musty," the smallest man on the squad, was nevertheless a good basket ball player. He was a hard fighter and always kept his eye on the ball. He was also an exceptionally good shot. He has two more years to make the team.
REGINALD "ROOT-BEER" BARRETT.
Another surprise was the discovery of a capable man to fill the back guard position. Barrett, who is only a Freshman, fitted into the place perfectly. His consistent playing was only one of his many good qualities. Very few men ever got a close-in shot with Barrett playing back guard. Having three more years to play, much is expected of this sturdy Freshman.
RAYMOND "HUCK' DORRIS. Forward.
"Huck” played a very consistent game when he was in it. He was a good floor man and could always be relied on to make a field goal when most needed. "Huck" has one more year to make a name for himself.
I’agr Ninety-fourRUSSF.LL POOLE. Forward.
Poole, another Freshman who made good, was a good, hard playing basket ball player. He was a dead shot and was exceptionally good at following up long shots. Much can be expected of this boy in the future.

Basket Ball at F. C. H. S. was a huge success both from an athletic and a financial viewpoint. As winners of the District Tournament, the school is proud of the team. This made the fourth consecutive year that F. C. H. S. won the District Tournament.
The team hit a slump at various times during the season, but in the District Tournament they played an unbeatable brand of Basket Ball. An All-Star team was not picked at Benton for some unknown reason.
The team was composed mostly of Sophomores and Juniors. 1 he school is expecting much of next year’s team since only one man is lost by graduation.
TRACK SEASON, 1925
With a veteran team much can be expected of Coaches Hall and Tucker and their proteges. During the winter months the men who were not out for the basket ball team were out for track every afternoon.
The inter-class track meet was held in the first week of April and the final results were:
1st place. Seniors..............................49 points
2nd place. Sophomores...........................37 points
3rd place. Juniors..............................32 points
