THE 1938 PUBLISHED BY THE SENIOR CLASS OF 1938 Editor ... Business Manager Faculty Advisor -Faculty Advisor Joseph Forgatch Paul Sheffler Carthol Walston George Queen THE YEARBOOK OF FRANKFORT COMMUNITY HIGH SCHOOL WEST FRANKFORT, ILLINOISThe Senior Class of 1938 and the RED BIRD Staff take pleasure in presenting this volume to you. In it you will find an honest effort to fairly portray our school life in word and picture. Since activity is composed of the people who take part, their work and their play, we have divided school life as portrayed here into: 0 THE PEOPLE Q THEIR DEEDS Q THEIR DIVERSIONS J FOREWORD FOREWORD FOREWORD FOREWORD FOftTo Mr. Otis Stone who retired from the Board of Education this Spring after serving nine years, five of which were served as president, we respectfully dedicate this volume of the RED BIRD. Mr. Stone's keen understanding of the place of education as || the very foundation of a democratic government, of the func- jl tion of a school within a community, of the problems and If needs of the youth of a community, and his steadfast deter- 31 mination to place the welfare of the student above all other |f considerations in connection with the school, mark him as a || real friend of education in general, and of F. C. H. S. in par- II ticular. We are sorry to lose him from the Board of Education. If ■ ■- dedicate we dedicate we dedicate we dedicate ■■Joyous activity, is the keynote of West Frankfort High School. High school students of F. C. H. S. know the full meaning of a well proportioned program of work time and play time. After four years of participation in such a constructive program, a sense of responsibility and individuality has been developed in addition to the attaining of a scholastic record. Such a combination of qualities tend to produce good citizens. F. C. H. S. has a wide range of extra-curricular activities to offer its students—such as football, basketball, track, boxing, wrestling, dramatics, music and art, and many club activities. West Frankfort, the coal-bin of the nation! The mineral wealth of our community makes this phrase a fitting epithet, and we take pardonable pride in pointing out Orient Number Two as the largest coal mine in the world. The coal deposits give rise to our basic industries, but our city is notable in other ways. It is the shopping center of Southern Illinois. It has a Lions Club, a Rotary Club, and a Junior and Senior Woman's Club which show the active interest taken here in civic affairs. West Frankfort is the home of the Egyptian Choral Club which is making available to Southern Illinois many things of cultural value. West Frankfort as a community is steadily improving and as the nation's coal-bin certainly is not a "has been." The faculty of F. C. H. S. is among the best in this section of the state. Thirteen of the thirty-three teachers have their Master's Degrees completed and at least three others will finish the work for the Master's Degree this summer. Many of our teachers are doing graduate work at the present time. Most of the teachers have been teaching in this school for several years. Only two are teaching their first year while two others are teaching their seventeenth year in this school. The average tenure for teachers is seven years. This fact alone is a splendid commendation for the quality of service being rendered by our faculty. Some twelve hundred students fill the classrooms and throng the corridors of our beautiful high school building which was constructed originally for a much smaller number of students. None are so proud as to boast that F. C. H. S. students generally are superior to students of other high schools in the state, nor are any so humble as to admit that they are in any way inferior to the students of any other high school. They are young, vivacious, and eager for success and happiness in the life which lies before them. The reputation of F. C. H. S. rests upon the activities, accomplishments, and products of our active students. PEOPLE THE PEOPLE THE PEOPLE THE PEOPLE THE PEO fOUR BOARD OF EDUCATION • Otis Stone.

I" THE PEOPLE THE PEOPLE THE PEOPLE THE PEOPLE THE PEOUR CLASS In the fall of 1934 approximately 335 'Til redbirds" hopped into their educational cage, F. C. H. S. Now we are about ready to rise and fly and to seek our fortune. For our class officers of 1934-35 we elected as President, fay Drakslar, Vice-President, Muriel McClintock; Secretary, Charles Ashby and Treasurer, Dita McReaken. We chose for our helpful sponsors, Miss Webb and Mr. McClintock. As our attendant to the Football Queen we elected Walterine Witunski. In 1937, we elected as our officers: President, Leo Land; Vice-President, Roy Davis; Secretary, Jo Ann Skok, and Treasurer, Madge Murphy. Miss Grant and Mr. McClintock as class sponsors. We made considerable history this year. We presented as the class plav "The Haunted House" with excellent characters, and an excellent director, Miss Alice L. Grant. We elected Betty Williams, Maid of Honor. Our Lady in Waiting was Elizabeth Heaton. At the end of this year the student body elected Earl Smith, Student Body President. For our last and probably the best year of all, we chose as our class officers: President, Roy Davis, Vice-President, Andy Delleneck; Secretary, Wilma Vittone and Treasurer, Fred Bedokis. Our boys were always on top both in basketball and football. Miss Hoye and Mr. Rosan were our guiding sponsors. We presented as our class play this year "Mother’s Millions” which was a howling success. Our director of this play was Miss Hoye, and our characters were wonderful. Our Queen was Betty Williams and our Lady in Waiting was Elizabeth Heaton. OUR OFFICERS ROY P. DAVIS—President Born in Salem, Arkansas, April 3. 1913; moved to Illinois in 1914; attended grade school in Orient, entering F. C. H S. in 1927. After two years in F C. H S , quit school and entered the coal mines in summer of '29; re-entered school in '36 to complete his high school education. ANDY DELLENECK—Vice-President Born in West Frankfort on November 25. 1917; graduated from Logan school; went to high school for two years, then dropped out and went to CCC camp; stayed in camp for a year and then decided to come back and complete his high school education; participated in football, basketball, track; belonged to the "F" Club. WILMA VITTONE—Secretary Born January 29, 1920; spent first six years of grade school education in Edwards School and received final two years of grades at Central; since entering F. C. H S. has proved active in orchestra, glee club, G. A. A. and S. O. S. club activities. FREDERICK BEDOKIS—Treasurer Born September 24, 1920, in West Frankfort; attended Franklin, and Central grade schools; entered F C. H S in 1934; president of the third year Spanish Club, and a Student Patrol member E PEOPLE THE PEOPLE THE PEOPLE THE PEOPLE THE PEOI ■ ■ THE REDBIRD SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY As I sat on my front porch one hot day in July, in 1959, thinking of my days in High School, 1 saw upon the horizon a dark cloud. As the cloud drew nearer, I saw that it was a duststorm. Suddenly a bright idea came to me. I rushed into the house and was back in a few seconds with my Dustpan. The storm came on in earnest. "Get to work, Dustpan," I said, "and see if you can find some dirt on any of my old F. C. H. S. friends." When the dust storm had subsided, I saw the dustpan coming down the street simply loaded down with dirt. "My," I thought, "there has certainly been some scandalous happenings in the old gang since I left." I began pulling dirt, and here is what I found! ! ! 1 Roy Davis is the Socialist candidate for the Presidency in the next election. Roy is making a strong fight and he intends to move the capitol to Orient if elected because the roads there are so bad that he would not be able to leave town during the winter. Jane Rose Gasaway is on the same ticket for Vice-President. Her campaign speeches consist mainly of poems composed by her publicity agents, Curran Book and Rex Murphy. An example of the poetry she uses is: "A boy stood on a burning deck, talking politics by heck! When you go to the polls on election day, Vote for Davis and Gasaway!" Another outstanding event is the non-stop three times around the globe, flight of Kathleen Meagher and Virginia Weilt. Kathleen said it was all an accident; they couldn't stop the plane after the first round. Frank Chismar is teaching football in Madge Murphy's kindergarten and Leon Walton is the new janitor. Two that we can well be proud of are composers of the biggest song hit of all time, "Pork and Beans Blues"—Lester Bristow and Tommy Graham. George Kolesar and Frances Pavelich eloped, were caught and sent to a children's reform school. Wait! This is terrible! Joe Forgatch and Fred Bedokis have rented a room at San Quentin for the next five years for stealing gum from under the tables of Violet Martin's restaurant. They say that Jim Batts has taken up peanut selling as a hobby along with his pop corn. Ava LeGrand, Emmy Behn, and Muriel McClintock (comediennes) rank high among the celebrities of Hollywood. Ava is now working on her newest talking picture entitled "Good Girls Go For Gambling Gangsters." In the world of research we have Dr. Elizabeth Heaton who has just finished a book entitled, "My Seven Years of Research in a Nutshell." Reverend Charles Ashby is pastor of the Harlem Cathedral in Chicago. It is said that Charles has such a long face that he has to hire Betty William and Wilma Vittone to hold it up so he won't step on it. Can you guess Martin Petrasik's fate? Well, he is the living skeleton in Charles Saylor's Circus. Bob York, a noted explorer has just returned from a trip to the moon. Earl Smith, the owner of a chain system (of stills) throughout West Virginia and Tennessee, is doing very well. The head of another chain gang is Oscar Nichols. Conrad Holt, Gene Lewis, and Joe Sabolo are his right hand men. Oscar became enraged after some unfair baseball decisions and started an underworld gang to take all umpires for a ride. His slogan is "Free Transportation for Umpires." Owen Gill takes care of the umpires when Oscar gets through with them. He is one of the most famous embalmers in the country. Bill Novak and Charles Nolen won new shovels as prizes in a ditch digging WPA Contest. Dita McReaken is running for President of the Ladies' Aid Society. Her helpers are Margaret Hiscox, Cleo Hall and Loraine Epper-heimer. Oh! Horrors! Just as I started to pull out another lump of dirt, along came a strong puff of wind and swept the dustpan clean. What shall I do? I know there was some good juicy scandal left, but I’ll catch them the next time—I hope.

There are two types of clubs; curricular and extra-curricular. The curricular clubs are those which meet on school time, the extra-curricular are those which meet outside of school hours. The ability of the group to work together as a unit upon a common topic of interest develops not only club unity, but individual responsibility, sociability and leadership. There are approximately thirty clubs in our school, the majority of which are extra-curricular. F. C. H. S. has a point system for extra-curricular activities. A well organized point system may be a measuring tool for encouraging, guiding, and directing student activities. It has been set up for five distinct purposes: (a) To encourage student participation in extra-class activities through the offering of point awards; (b) To provide an equitable credit allowance for all of the activities; (c) To restrict participation of any one student within a certain limit and thereby make more opportunities for a greater number of students, (d) To serve as a disciplinary measure by demerits given for breaches of conduct against the student society, (e) To serve as a basis for determining honors and awards. Some of our club organizations function as pe;-manent groups, continuing from year to year. Let us note a few reasons why some school groups continue year after year while others die. Adult leadership, willing to sacrifice time and talent in making an attempt to understand and initiate, goes a long way toward laying a lasting foundation for a student organization. Affiliation with state and national organizations plays an important part in the life or death of any group. Clubs and organizations function and continue to exist only when there is a will, on the part of the membership, to strive for a definite purpose. Clubs interest students most when definite work is presented and the program of work is organized. In addition to the older clubs which have been in existence in our school, this year finds several new groups or organizations operating as clubs for the first time. The following list contains the names of these new groups: (1) Latin Club (Phi Epsilon); (2) Science Club; (3) Ping Pong Pros, (4) 13 Aces; (5) Kennel Club; (6) Hobby Club. In general the purpose of organizing these new clubs was to offer to the student a wider scope of knowledge, that is, to increase his or her opportunities for a fuller, more balanced education. In other words to allow the student to develop his or her talent or ability better than he had heretofore been able to do. These new clubs are described more in detail under their picture on other pages in this book IR DEEDS THEIR DEEDS THEIR DEEDS THEIR DEEDS THI B ________________.THE REDBIRD OF 1938 Betty takes part in other school activities as a member of O. G. A., Girl Reserves, and Glee Club. She is an able student with a grade average of 3.31. Upon receiving her diploma she plans to attend Western Laboratory Technician School in Minneapolis, Minn. Betty's hobby is collecting various kinds of toy dogs and swimming is her favorite sport. Our past Football Queens beginning with 1927 are as follows: In '27, Charlotte Webb; None in '28; '29, Esther McCollum; '30, Evelyn Hayes; '31, Frances Kirby; '32, Dorothy Sawyer; '33, Dorothy Cockran, '34, Olean Cook; '35, Betty Limerick; '36, Hilda Ramsey; '37, Nancy Rogers and in '38, Betty Williams. OUR FOOTBALL QUEEN Betty Williams "Football Queen” of the Class of "38” was bom Nov. 25, 1919, in West Frankfort, Illinois. She has answered the roll call in the East Moline School, East Side School in Johnston City and in F. C. H. S. After graduating from the eighth grade in Johnston City, she entered F. C. H. S. where she was elected to be an attendant to the queen her sophomore year, Maid of Honor in "37” and Football Queen in "38." EIR DEEDS THEIR DEEDS THEIR DEEDS THEIR DEEDS THEIR DEEDS THEIR DEEDS THEIR iTHE REDBIRD OF 1938 OUR STUDENT PRESIDENT Back in 1921, just one day before George Washington's birthday, Earl Smith Junior was born. His mother, like all American Mothers no doubt, dreamed presidential dreams for her son. Little Earl, after he reach school age, went to the Edwards school and was graduated from the Central. Entering F. C. H. S. the fall of 1934, he began to amass both knowledge and friends. Earl stayed close to his books the first three years and found his steady application to classroom work rewarded when at the close of his junior year he was elected student body president. After attaining the highest student office he not only continued to do good class work, but this year he has occupied a place in the school limelight through the Senior play, Hi-Y, Student Patrol, Rifle Club, S. O. S. and Gladstones. He is even going out for track. Always courteous, friendly and co-operative Earl has not only realized his fondest high school dreams but has helped to make school a better place by his unstinted service to students and faculty alike. Being bom before the first president s birthday may have been a good omen, yet it may be more true to say that honor was bestowed because that honor was earned by unfailing application to duty. , R DEEDS THEIR DEEDS THEIR DEEDS THEIR DEEDS THEIR DEEDS THEIR DEEDS THEIR DEIHONOR SOCIETY The students in the Honor Society are selected from the Junior and Senior classes. The present members are all seniors and were selected last year by a faculty vote. Scholarship, leadership, character, and service are the four requirements for National Honor Society membership. STUDENT PATROL The Student Patrol was organized in 1929 under the sponsorship of Mr and Mrs. Tucker. The Patrol strives to aid the student body for the general welfare of the school. One of the foremost characteristics of the patrol is to secure the goodwill of the students by politeness. This year it seems to have reached its goal due to the co-operation of the students. The Student Patrol is the only executive student body in F. C. H. S. This year the Patrol has had one of its best years due to the fine leadership of its president. s. o. s. (Students' Order of Shorthand) The purpose of the S. O. S. Club is to promote interest and to increase speed in shorthand and typewriting, and to secure practical information from the business men and women of the city. The nautical idea is carried out in the club. At each meeting during the term the club is favored by a talk from some business man or woman. Each member keeps a record of club activities in a club scrapbook. O. G. A. (Order of Gregg Artists) The O. G. A. is composed of students taking the second year of shorthand and typing. Its purpose is to promote speed and accuracy and acquaint the students with the business world. Club meetings are held each Friday and programs are arranged by appointed committees.

There are four planks in the Hi-Y platform: clean living, scholarship, speech and athletic. The Hi-Y club was first introduced into F. C. H. S. by Rev. Paul Smith in 1925. Meetings are held each Monday night. Many activities have been enjoyed the past year: a hallowe'en party, a valentine party with the Girl Reserves, Father and Son banquet and the senior farewell banquet. The club had twenty-nine delegates at the Older Boys' Conference which was held in Marion, January fourth and fifth. Our Hi-Y sent the largest delegation. The club made donations to the National Hi-Y. The Red Cross, The Salvation Army, pays for the paper in the library and sells candy for the athletic fund at the basketball games. GIRL RESERVES The Girl Reserve Club has as its motto, "To find and give the best." During the past year our club tried to live up to its purposes through its activities. At Thanksgiving the girls bring food and prepare baskets for the needy. Money is taken from the treasury at Christmas to buy toys for unfortunate children. The club meets each Wednesday after school and discusses different problems. They have short programs to add to their entertainment. Each year the girls try to have a Mothers' Day Banquet. “F" CLUB The "F" Club was organized for all the boys of F. C. H. S. who, through their hard work in football, basketball, or track have won their “F" token. This year the football men each received a letter featuring the word "Champs" on a cardinal background with "Big Eleven" down one side. A small football is at the upper left corner and the year at the bottom. RED BIRD NOTES During this year the "Red Bird Notes" has been a weekly product of a fixed staff. This is the first year the paper has not changed staffs each six weeks. Also for the first time, the paper is not published on school time. The permanent paper staff has proved more efficient and dependable than the "six weeks" staffs of former years. It is hoped that this year's paper will be placed in the first division of the National Scholastic Press Association. [R DEEDS THEIR DEEDS THEIR DEEDS THEIR DEEDS THEIR DEEDS THEIR DEEDSHi-Y Pres.

The colors are purple and gold and the motto is "Let There Be Light," while they remember their language with the song "Longa, Longa, Via." The programs during the semester have consisted of parties, and movie picture slides of Julius Caesar and of Rome. They plan to have a lawn party and a hay ride in the near future. SCIENCE CLUB This club was organized late in January, 1938. At the first meeting there were thirty members present. The purpose of the club is to acquaint students with ideas or information in science that is not given in the regular high school science courses. Scientific information is not confined to one branch of science alone, but includes scientific topics in general. The methods used to impart such information consists of the following: 1. Oral talks by members assisted by the sponsors. 2. Demonstrations conducted by members and sponsors. 3. Field trips to various spots in Southern Illinois. THE THIRTEEN ACES The 13 Aces was organized under the sponsorship of Mrs. Launius at the beginning of this year. The members chose as their club colors, green and white. Their motto is, “Batt 'em and Beat 'em." The club constitution allows only 13 members in the club. The thirteen hope to live up to their name and form a tradition in the school.

A pleasing personality to a large extent determines how well we will get along in this modem world. Let us hope that in the near future we can offer all boys and girls a physical education program that will give them a chance to develop their bodies as well as their minds. A well rounded education cannot neglect the physical side. An effort is made each year to present a variety program in the field of dramatics. Ordinarily a mystery-comedy will be balanced by a good comedy-drama or drama in the field of the two class plays. The operetta meets the need for expression in both music and speech. Outside of the foregoing the speech department gives acting experience to its members through the medium of one-act plays for special occasions such as contests, Christmas, and assembly programs. The general aid is to provide an opportunity for many rather than for the chosen few. The music department strives to give training and encouragement to its members, and help them to enjoy fully the beauty of good music. Moreover it provides the students with a worthwhile interest in the fine arts and the more cultural side of life. By participating in the various music organizations the students develop a good sense of dependability, perseverence, co-operation and leadership. The department tries not only to improve the talents of its performers, but to improve the school's appreciation of good music. To the school it lends its support in its activities and furnishes entertainment for school functions and civic organizations. The function of a high school is more than merely offering classes for the study of certain courses provided in the curriculum. It includes training in citizenship, character, culture, personality and those things which are of fundamental importance to every individual regardless of his educational status. Our school has provided an abundance of assembly programs intended to offer just that type of training. The programs have included cultural programs, character programs, educational programs and programs of clean entertainment. During the school year at least thirty such programs are offered. We hope they have been instrumental in serving the purpose for which they are intended. R DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVERSIONSTHE REDBIRD OF 1938 Changnon Hodges McClintock Eadie OUR COACHES Director of Athletics — Coach Stanley A. Changnon This is Coach Changnon's third year as Athletic Director here. In those three years he produced two championship football teams. His basketball teams also rank high and he has produced some of the best players in the conference. It may be truthfully said that his hopes are high for having the best football and basketball teams in the history of F. C. H. S. next year We will be watching and waiting, Coach. Assistant Coach Harlan C. Hodges Track Mentor Harlan C. Hodges has done exceptionally well with the track teams during his three years in that department. His teams are always rated the best. Mr. Hodges is also coach of the second teams in football and basketball. His football team this past year never lost a game and was considered the best in this section of the state. Our hats are off to you Mr. Hodges, and may you continue your fine work. Assistant Coach Harry W. McClintock To Mr. McClintock we must give much credit for he has a difficult job in coaching the freshmen in the three branches of our athletics. He has never complained, though, and for that we must give him double credit and thanks. Many of the best athletes of West Frankfort had their first instructions from Mr. McClintock and then onward he sent them to their glory and stardom in the field of athletics. Statistician Robert B. Eadie Mr. Eadie's work lies chiefly in dealing with statistics on the games and track meets. He is ready to render his services at any and all events. Mr. Eadie also handles the Freshmen football hopes for the first four or five weeks of each fall and after instructing them in the preliminary fundamentals of the game, sends them on to Mr. McClintock for further instruction. ]IR DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVER’.THEIR DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVERS.'Q B ° right: Gicabosi.

Speed, power, and backfield strategy sufficient to score four touchdowns and two extra points gave the Cardinals a clean victory. Red Birds 13 — Decatur 0 Decatur came to Frankfort for a return game with the Red Birds. The Birds were after a revenge for their last year's 6 to 0 loss and dumped the visitors 13 points to a goose egg. Red Birds 59 — Carterville 0 The Red Birds got it into their blood that they had a pretty good team by winning two straight games They proved their feeling and went on to trounce Carterville. 59 to 0. Another goose egg for Frankfort's oponents. Red Birds 7 — Harrisburg 6 The Harrisburg Bull Dogs marred the Red Bird's scoreless slate for the first time this season by completing a pass that proved good for a touchdown They also held our Birds to only seven points in a very tough battle on Harrisburg's grassy field. It was a close game, but we are glad that it gave the Birds a 7 to 6 victory. Red Birds 33 — Herrin 6 The Red Birds returned home again and encountered with the scrappy Tigers from Herrin. Battling like champs the first half, holding the Red Birds Wonder team to one touchdown, and then tieing them in the third quarter, six to six. their defense fell and the Birds went on to an easy victory. It's number five for our Birds so far. Red Birds 62 — DuQuoin 0 Running wild the entire game the Red Bird Wonder Team set back the DuQuoin Indians on our field by their biggest score of the season. 62 to 0. They had enough tough battling for two weeks straight and decided to go on a rampage. It's number 6 for our boys. Red Birds 7 — Centralia 7 The Red Birds motored to Centralia with the hope of making it number seven in a row and avenge their last minute defeat of last year. They started off in the first quarter by making a long drive up the field and on to a touchdown. But that was all of their scoring for that night and the Centralians pushed over seven points in the third quarter which made the game end at 7 to 7. Red Birds 14 — Johnston City 0 Armistice Day was celebrated with a double meaning this year when the Red Birds Wonder Team scored a Homecoming triumph over the Johnston City Indians by a score of 14 to 0 Approximately fifteen hundred people witnessed this game and saw the Birds go into a co-lead with Carbondale for the Big Eleven Championship title. This game was marked with plenty of rough action and thriling plays. Red Birds 14 — Murphysboro 6 The Birds had another hard battle with the Murphysboro Red Devils, but defeated them 14 to 6. This encounter was the last home game for the Birds this year and was played in bitter cold weather with snowflakes falling the first half of the game It was their eighth victory without a defeat and only Benton stood between them and the Conference title. Red Birds 20 — Benton 0 Before a gay and enthusiastic crowd of about four thousand sDectators the Re4 Birds scored a great triumph over the Benton Rangers at Tabor Field. Thanksgiving Day by a score of 20 to 0. The Wonder Team was credited as a real wonder, when they started making power plays, fast end runs, and touchdowns. Time and time again the Rangers made earnest attempts to stop the Bird's line plays, but the Cardinals seemed to have the power of a steam roller. They were playing their final game and for the Conference Title too. and won. -TF.TR DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVERSION THEIR DIVERSIONS THEIR ITHE REDBIRD OF 1938 VIEWS QPORTING NEWS Football Basketball Track INTERVIEWS Cardinals Setback Decatur 13-0 Frankfort Will Be Host Birdlels Keep Red Birds FRANK CHISMAR °Murphy,boro Today i "z?,P„Tu"“ Benton ACE OK £ Uass yi Day ™ Birds S . -Murphysb„ Jed Devils 14 y 1 Rose and Book -u Added to Sports Staff of Paper tale Only ndefeated jg Eleven R.fBDS VlfMOUS in GAME vf ,A ■ i « THIRTY-SEVEN CHAMPS IN THE NEWS R DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVERSION THEIR DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVE THE REDBIRD OF 1938 FRANK "POP" CHISMAR—Captain—R.

Carbondale was next and it was played at Carbondale It seemed an easy matter to overcome the supposed strong Puppies as again the Birdlets won by a bigger score this time. 39 to 0. Herrin sent its second team over and was prepared to give the Birdlets a real battle. For a while they did but the strong Birdies took them to camp. 19 to 0. Benton came back for a return game and succeeded in scoring the first two points against the Birdlets. This did not discourage the boys, though, and they went on to win, 39 to 2. Carbondale also returned for a second encounter, but they were upset tremendously by the Birdlets to a tune of 41 to 0. The time came for the Birdlets to give Herrin a return engagement. They did and also gave them another defeat. This time it was 25 to 0 Marion was next on the Birdlets’ schedule and they came over to test the strength of Frankfort's Birdlets. They learned soon enough as they were drubbed 36 to 0. Then came the last game of the season for the Birdlets. This game was the toughest cf the year but again they won and finished the season without a defeat or a tie The score was 25 to 6. The results of the games of this great second team means that next year there will be some excellent football material for Coach Changnon. 8 DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVERSION THEIR DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVIEddie Goscinski Dante Patterozzi Don Howoll Guard CAPTAIN NICK LEVANTI Nick reached his fame this year, his third successive year on the first five, by being made captain of the Red Birds. He played in almost every game and always proved himself that dependable defensive guard that he is. Nick was classified as a "defensive demon" for he constantly broke up plays that might have resulted in a basket and probably a last minute victory for the opponents. He kept his team fighting to the last second and never gave up until the final gun ended the game. Nick is only a Junior but his position will be very hard to fill next season, since he will be too old. Guard ANDY PATTERSON This is Andy's first year as a regular on the first team and what a regular he proved himself to be! Andy missed only three quarters of action in over twenty games and that was mostly because of fouling out. There were several games that Andy showed exceptionally good basketball ability and came out high point man in five of them. Being only a Junior he will be back to finish his stardom in F. C. H. S. next year. Forward EARL ALEXANDER Earl was the smallest man on the Red Bird team and probably the fastest. He won fame by his shifty speed and clever dribbling. To Earl goes the credit of being the high point man of the season and for having the most points scored in a single game. Most of Earl's points were scored by his uncanny ability to dribble through the enemy's defense. We can expect Earl back next year as he is only a Junior. IR DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVERSION THEIR DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVAndy Patterson Bill Mausy Earl Alexander Nick Levant! Forward EDDIE GOSCINSKI Eddie was another first year man on the hard wood team. He had to work up from the bottom and he did one swell job of it. Once he got his chance he proved himself worthy of it. Eddie was noted for always fooling the other boys by his tricky ways of shooting. He was also high point man in quite a few contests. Since he is a Junior he will be back in uniform next season making a bid for a regular berth again on the first team. Center BILL MAUZY Center is Bill's position and he knew how to handle it. Many a visiting team feared Bill's pivot shots under the basket but very few could do anything about it. Bill is a specialist when it comes to those kind of shots, he will be specializing again next year as he too is a Junior.

As a result the first encounter was lost to Vienna at Vienna by a 38-39 tilt. On the following night the same boys played again and lost a close game to the Valier Blue Birds by a margin of one point, 19-18. On the following week the Birds motored to McLeansboro with four members from the football squad reporting. These boys had no practice at all and played the last few minutes of the game. The Birds lost their third straight by a score of 34-25. Vienna returned their game with the Red Birds on the home floor and also returned their previous win, this time 22-14. The Red Birds won their first game of the season against the McLeansboro five by a tune of 28-20. It was on the home court and three new regulars started the game. Marion welcomed the Birds to their gymnasium for a conference game, the first for the Red Birds. They seemed to realize the word conference and trounced the Wild Cats 23-15. The night after, Eldorado visited F. C. H. S. for another conference tilt. Our boys still had plenty of fight in them from the previous night and scored a 24-15 victory. Carbondale took the Red Birds in camp the following week to give them their first conference setback. The Terriers doubled the score with a 32-16 drubbing. Anna came to Frankfort the next night, but the Cardinals didn't seem friendly in basketball language as they turned them back 33-29, in a close game. fn the middle of the week the Birds journeyed to our Neighbors at Zeigler. They didn't seem friendly at all for they sent the Birds back on the short end of a 24-16 encounter. HR DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVERSION THEIR DIVERSIONS THEIR DI THE REDBIRD OF 1938 Centralia invited the Red Birds for a game in their new gymnasium. It was the team's longest trip of the season, but sadly enough came home with another defeat, 32-21. During the Christmas holidays the Red Birds participated in the Mt. Vernon Invitational Tournament. Last year they were successful to win second honors, but this year were eliminated by Albion in their first game 31-21. After three straight defeats, the boys took it out on Carmi in the next contest with a 39-20 win. The game with Johnston City was the most exciting game of the Birds' home schedule. After four quarters of thrills and spills, the Red Birds finally emerged to win a very close 21-19 thriller. Benton was the scene of the next game and the Rangers were seeking revenge for their defeat in football at the hands of the Cardinals. They got revenge all right by winning, 30-23 Valier's Blue Birds arrived at Frankfort for a return engagement. It was a slow game and the Red Birds downed the Blue Birds, 14-5. Johnston City was waiting for the Red Birds in what was predicted to be another rough and close battle. All predictions were true as the game had to be played overtime before the Indians finally won a 20-18 heart-breaker. Marion came to West Frankfort for the Birds' eighth conference game and their second with the Wild Cats. They repeated their previous victory with a 30-20 win. The return game with Carbondale, this time here, proved to be a real thriller. The Birds seemed to be on their way to give Carbondale their first conference defeat in 10 games. They led the Terriers 22-11 at the half, but the visitors came back strong in the last half to win 36-30. On the following night the Birds went to Eldorado to try to enter the win column again. They were successful this time for they returned with a 27-21 victory. Benton's Rangers found out that F. C. H. S. Red Birds could play a winning brand of ball on their visit to Frankfort. The Birds evened the initial victory of Benton's by downing them in a close game, 15-9. Third place in the conference standing depended on the next game with Anna-Jonesboro at Anna. Our Birds knew it, so came back with third place and at 31-29 victory. Zeigler was the last home game and last scheduled game of the season for the Red Birds. The first half proved very close, but the Birds found the range and started clicking in the last two quarters to win the game 31-22. The Regional Tournament was held at Benton this year with West Frankfort pitted against the Johnston City Indians in their first game. The Indians proved superior this time and also proved themselves a tournament team as they beat West Frankfort 34-22 and went on to beat Benton in the finals and win the tournament. Putting the whole season in a nut shell, the Red Birds had a pretty fair season. They finished third in the conference with eight wins compared to four losses. They played twenty-four complete games; won twelve ancTlost twelve to finish with a percentage of 500.

All of the second team games were played as preliminary events to the regular first team games. The Birdlets compared to the Red Birds had about as good a season. Out of fourteen games they won 8 and lost 6. They had the pleasure of beating the Johnston City Papooses during the year. This was the only defeat administered to the young Indians out of their entire schedule. 1 DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVERSION THEIR DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVETHE REDBIRD OF 1938 OUR TRACK TEAM Due to the {act that the track meets do not take place until after this book has gone to press, we cannot give any definite results ont the outcome. These meets are to be held as follows: April 9—County meet, here. April 23—Herrin relays. April 30—West Frankfort relays. May 7—Conference meet, here. May 14—Southern Illinois meet, here. May 21—State meet, Urbana. May 28—Marion relays. We may truthfully predict that Track Mentor Hodges has very fine material for a better than average team this year. Incidentally for the first time in many years West Frankfort will have better men in field events than in track. The boys who are expected to be outstanding are: Captain Walter Kmiecik in the hurdles and varsity relay, Frank Chismar and Nick Levanti in the shotput and discus. Bob Newton in the javelin, Earl Alexander in the pole vault and Andy Swinkunis and Rolla Mitchell in the mile run. R DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVERSION THEIR DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVlTHE REDBIRD OF 1938 SPORT KIT F. C. H. S. had one of its best football teams in West Frankfort history in the 1937 Wonder Team. West Frankfort has won the Big Eleven Conference title three times since football was first started in F. C. H. S - -in 1926, 1935 and 1937, but this year the football team was exceptionally outstanding. The Wonder Team played ten games this past year and won nine of them and tied the tenth with Centralia, 7 to 7. Six of these encounters were conference games and the Birds won all six. They amassed a total of 254 points against their opponents' 25. Another unusual occurrence took place in the football limelight as five members of the team received awards in the All-State ratings. Frank Chismar made the first All-State team and Willie Rose was awarded a position on the third team. Petrasik, Smith and Banycky were awarded honorable mention in the Conference, while Chismar, Rose and Smith were given frist team ratings and Banycky the second team. The basketball team finished the current season in third place. Out of twelve conference games they were victorious in eight. They defeated every team in the conference at least one time, except Carbondale. In a grand total of 24 games this season including tournaments the Bird Basketeers broke even with twelve wins and twelve losses. The team was composed of all Juniors except for Frank Chismar who was a Senior. Nick Levanti was the team's captain and a three-year member of the first five. Earl Alexander, the highest scorer for the season, was the smallest man on the team and probably in the conference. Little can be said concerning the track team as it is too early for any results on the meets. Walter Kmiecik was the newly elected track captain for the '38 season. Johnnie Prock was the previously elected captain at the end of last season but when the rules and regulations committee announced that in order to be eligible a senior athlete must complete the seventh and eighth semester together, Johnnie was automatically eliminated. He discontinued his studies at the end of the first semester last year and intended to complete the last semester this year and still be eligible for track. Track men of F. C. H. S. received a great treat when they moved into the new stadium. This track season will be the first time that the interior of the stadium had been used by athletes because it was not completed during football season this year. In addition to the completed stadium, we also have two new completed ticket boxes. These ticket boxes are located at the east and west entrances of the field. They are small concrete structures of the same design as the stadium and both have two ticket windows. Our school has long had the name of having the best track field in Southern Illinois, but the new stadium and ticket boxes will make it rank with any school in the state. 1 DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVERSIONS THEIR DIVERSION THEIR DIVERSIONS THEIR DIV■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ORCHESTRA During the past year our high school orchestra has brought wholesome and educational entertainment in the field of music to the people of West Frankfort. It has given many concerts and has thus far made the accomplishment of having an almost full house at each one. The orchestra has enjoyed being under the direction of Mr. Paschedag. His persistence and fine work have led the orchestra to hold a high place in both district and state contests. The aim of this organization is to hold this honor for a third year, and continue to present worthwhile music to the students and citizens of our community. F. C. H. S.

The concert band has a membership of sixty-five with Theodore W. Paschedag as leader and teacher. BOYS' GLEE CLUB The Boys Glee Club is a small organization that meets each Monday and Wednesday. The boys sing many serious and humorous songs. The club is divided into three sections: first tenor, baritone and bass. Some of the boys appeared in the operetta "Your Royal Highness," others in assembly programs and the spring music festival. Miss Gloyd is their director. GIRLS' GLEE CLUB The Girls' Glee Club, directed by Miss Gloyd is made up of members of each class. The girls have worked up several good selections this year. The Glee Club meets Tuesday and Thursday during the third period. Twenty of the select voices of the chorus competed in the Big Eleven Conference. During the past season the girls have taken part in carol singing, operetta, assembly programs and the music festival held each spring at Johnston City. « MIXED CHORUS The mixed chorus was organized the beginning of the year by Miss Gloyd. The chorus is made up of twenty-eight select voices. It is divided into four sections: soprano, alto, tenor and bass. It is a great honor to become a member of the mixed chorus. The chorus has appeared in many programs and have been enjoyed by all. The chorus appeared in Your Royal Highness," February 10.

Mrs. Harriet Breen played forcefully by Phyllis Wentworth juggles railroads and stocks, and when her chief enemy, William Remington acted by David Bozarth, tries to corner the wheat, she smashes him. Unaffectionate she drives her son away and wrecks her daughter's happiness, yet she buys a railroad for her son, a magazine that her daughter's stories may be published, and when her daughter's lover proves a worthy person she makes him chairman of a grain company and consents to the marriage. Muriel McClin-tock as Maria Peppy, the housekeeper, kept the audience in high spirits. Joseph Forgatch as David Talbot and Letthus Weaver as Faire Breen were the romantic team while Earl Smith.

Nicholson JUNIOR PLAY “The Ninth Guest" At the stroke of eleven, guests begin to arrive at the Bienville Penthouse with the promise of a most unusual party. Each of the eight guests has reason to dislike one of the others, and each one suspects another of being the host. The butler admits that even he does not know the host. He is instructed to turn on the radio. A voice from the air says "you are listening to the voice of your host. ' The voice also says that the only means of escape from the penthouse is through a door charged with enough electricity to kill them, and that they are to play a most unusual game—a game of life and death. If they cannot outwit the host, each of them will die before morning and will die by his or her own hand. A Movie Actress. Stella Stokes; a woman lawyer. Loretta Cobb, and a society woman. Rita Land; are trapped in this fashion with a politician. John Pearce, a university president. Dick Gynn; a wealthy banker. Carl Burpo; a writer.

ATHLETIC CARNIVAL io™An£!:her 9al J festivity was held in the Frankfort Community High School on April 1, 1 u ' t secuond spr!n9 carnival was sponsored by the Athletic Association of the high school. Laughter and gayety reigned supreme for many hours. Jovial spectators and frolicsome clowns and barkers were everywhere The co-operation of the faculty and the student body made the hilarious event an overwhelming success A large variety of concessions added to the interest and merriment. In the hallway entrance at a brightly decorated novelty booth, paper hats, balloons, serpentine, confetti a n ij°rn!j were so A shooting gallery proved to be a popular place. It had an exhibit of old ana new guns Fascinating fortune tellers dressed in bright spangled costumes, revealed the present, past and future to the merry makers In the hobby corner one saw collections of pictures, stamps, arrowheads, woodwork, miscellaneous souvenirs, and model airplanes. From the mystery show one went to the wrestling matches Here boys who have had experience-stars like Martin Petrasik. Conrad Holt. Dante Pattrozzi. Theron Denton. Earl Alexander—exhibited their strength and skill. The boxing bouts were three round bouts and the wrestling was determined on a three point fall All evening, games of ping pong went on And who does not like to fish? At the fish pond one always caught some special prize! Or you tried your skill at horseshoes, the hoop la or the dart game. The art gallery had on display comic drawings of students and teachers, photographs, pictures painted by students, and reproductions of some famous masterpieces. In another room students could read on tombstones the very epitaphs they had always wanted to compose for some of their teachers In the Cafe Toute la nuit, Earl Smith was the master of ceremonies, and Evelyn Durham the hostess. The program consisted of swing music, tap dancing and blues singing. The waitresses were dressed in French costumes The Spanish Club had a sidewalk cafe representing a typical Mexican street—called La Calle ae Olvera ' Pottery, tapestry. Mexican art and dolls adorned the walls Tables were scattered around the walk At one were seated two old Mexican ladies, gossiping in Spanish At another two cowboys — gauchos — were arguing Entertainment was going on constantly Jessie Tones and Marcia Palmer did the tango. Gypsies in costume sang and danced. The soloist of the cafe was Mary Lena Soulsby. Guests in the street also sang and were accompanied on the guitar by Charles W Jones. The climax of the evening was the crowning of the carnival queen This final program was in the auditorium. Some of its features were a rainbow dance by a tap chorus a novelty tap duet, a vocal solo by Loretta Cobb, a stunt by Mephista. the horse who knows. At this time too, there were drawings for lucky numbers, and many prizes, contributed by the merchants of West Frankfort, were given away.

Steve Bernard: "Yes, and they are the sweetest of all.” Lloyd Mosely: "Honey, if I knew this tunnel was so long, I would have kissed you." Jane Griffin: "Why, didn't you? Someone did." Dick Gwyn: "Say Mr. Ely, how can you tell when you are drunk?” Mr. Ely: "Well Dick, see those two men sitting over there, when they look like four, then you are drunk." Dick: "But Mr. Ely, there is only one man sitting over there." Joseph Forgatch: "What did you give your dog for worms?” Angus Rodden: "Capsules." (Two weeks later). Joseph: "I gave my dog capsules, and he died." Angus: "So did mine." Miss Mikals: ”Ed, do you think you will ever grow to learn good manners?" Ed Mehok: "Well, no, you see, I'm through growing."
