An experienced, capable executive has led us through our life at F. C. H. S. For years, Mr. Sullivan has advocated the main essential of democracy —that each person should have a voice in his own government. The Student Council, organized this year, is a result of his idea. The students of F. C. H. S. appreciate this opportunity to govern themselves in a democratic way. “Chief Justices of f.C.H.S.” To these men who have labored so untiringly to help to give to the citizens of this community, a fine school, we wish to extend our thanks. Always looking for the things that will benefit our school, students, and surrounding community, they labor with no financial return for their services. Their co-operation in making the laws through which our "Chief Executive" and our "Cabinet" act is appreciated. Back Row; H.

True, in a certain sense, is the fact that one school is a big "Melting Pot". From all of the surrounding schools come the girls and boys who wish to further their learning; girls and boys—all doing their best to get an education for the betterment of their country, their county, and themselves. Our democracy was built on the policy of freedom to all— regardless of his race, class, or creed. Our institution follows the same principle. Be we Scotch or Irish, Catholic or Protestant, rich or poor; we all have the chance of "Melting" our abilities into this school and casting ourselves into "alloys" of better physical, mental, and moral standing.“Senior Se ttlers Like a group of explorers who are about to enter a new country for the purpose of establishing their future homes, the class of '41 enrolled in F. C. H. S. Their explorations being completed in the Freshman year, they engaged in a period of pioneering to develop a firmer foothold in the field of knowledge. As the Junior year approached, they found out that they needed newer outlets; therefore, they began the search for paths that would develop their individual abilities. They discovered some fine dramatic talent in the production of the play "Young April." Having emerged fairly efficient Pathfinders, in their Senior year they set out on definite trails toward their life's work. Included in their activities were the sweater swing, the class play, and the prom, which were sponsored by Miss Grant and Mr. Davis, faculty advisers. The successful journey of this group from explorers to finished settlers must be partially attributed to Samuel Hancock, who was their president throughout the four years, and to the faculty members who served as their sponsors. Senior Play-“This Awful Age" On April 15 the Senior class, under the direction of Miss Alice Grant, presented "This Awful Age", a sparkling comedy in three acts by Florence Ryerson and Colin Clements. The story concerns Penny Wood and Chuck Harris, the boy next door, as they go about the frequently difficult, but always amusing, business of growing up. Included in the cast were Ruby Nell Gann, Elmer Price, Bob Sinks, Richard Thermond, Geraldine Fife, Charles Presley, Mary Lee Sisney, Alice Rodden, Jerry Pharis, Cora Jean Abston, Robert White, Mary Lou Holland, and Kenneth Morris. _ ★ ★ ★ ★Senior Class Officers Sam Hancock (President) Bob Sinks (Vice-President) Ed Zukosky (Secretary) Paul Enrietto (Treasurer) "THIS AWFUL AGE" (Senior Play) _____ ____ 13 ★ ★ ★“This Changing World’’ SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY Here I am sitting on the capitol. steps gazing thoughtfully at the flag, which is waving gently in the late afternoon breeze. This flag continues to be appreciated more and mere by all Americans. The star representing the state of Illinois stands out most clearly to me because it is my home state. Another reason for its importance is that the President of the United States also comes from Illinois. Samuel Hancock, Student Body President of F. C. H. S„ 1940-41 holds that position. Many years have passed since "Sam " was Student Body President, and the world that should be in a turmoil is quite Deaceful under his guidance. The reason I say "should be in a turmoil" is because the older generation prophesied progress would be'retarded when the government passed into the hands of that so-called "younger generation"; nevertheless, as the young people of our community have taken governmental offices, we find things running quite smoothly. Fixing my eyes on the capitol entrance, I see Elaine Zwick, who is the first woman to have the honor of being Vice-President. Leaving my post, I decide to eyter the White House. Crossing the hall to the elevator, I am greeted by 'none other than James McPhail, who hold - the governmental position of bell-hop in the White House. Stepping r ,ne elevator, I stand face to face with Elsie Mae Sheaffer. I question he jnd find that she has stepped into the shoes of Mrs. Perkins, Secretary ..f Labor. Leaving the elevator, I hurriedly walk down the hall. As I approach a large room, I am annoyed by the rumbling .of people’s voices. Upon investigating, I find that the Supreme Court Judges are having a round table discussion as to whether our country should have more night clubs. The members in favor of the proposition are Zon Connett, J. W. Clemm, Harold Freemen and Otto Lenich; those opposed are Mary Boggia, John Ryal, Bob Sinks, Mary Lou Holland, and Rollie Sims. Having made my exit unseen by the group, I stroll into the Blue Room to find peace and quiet. To pass the time away I pick up a paper left behind by Robert McNeely, Secretary of the Treasury. He had been deep in thought and did not recognize me as an old classmate. I am amazed when I see the old familiar heading, "Red Bird Notes," staring me in the face. Eagerly I glance from page to page. I am greatly pleased to see that several of my former classmates are running the affairs in my home town, West Frankfort. John Michnovicz has secured the position as Mayor, due to his great ability in leadership. West Frankfort has become a city of great wealth. Close at hand to assist him in any governmental affairs are the town's best business men; Charles Deering, manager of the Deering Drug; Bob Burg, manager of the Burg Clothing Store; and Paul Enrietta, assistant manager of the old-hang out, "Mikes”. Laying the paper aside, I rise slowly and as I leave the room, my thoughts are filled with memories of my old classmates. A smile creeps across my face as I think how well our president has put the Spoils System into effect, since so many of his former classmates hold governmental offices. As I descend the stairs, the memories of my classmates gradually fade from my mind. With the last rays of the sunlight, I watch the flag waving in the evening breeze, and I am thankful that it still waves "over the land of the free and the home of the brave.” 14SENIOR SETTLERS Cora loan Abston “Pll sing you a song ' Clyde Allen Acord "I'd walk a mile for a girl."

Of course, we knew he was joking and soon we told this to others. Our Sophomore Path was even more inviting and offered so many advantages. As in our first we elected responsible officers and sponsors. The girls who represented us in the Homecoming activities were very attractive as in the former year. The obstacles which we face this third year are not so puzzling as before. Our officers are all able leaders. If, at anytime, troubles arise at class meetings, Mrs. Henson and Mr. Crowell are willing to advise us. Betty Turner and Geraldine Fife were elected as attendants to the Homecoming Queen this fall. Neva Woolard is cheerleader again as she has been in the past two years. In the paths of scholarship and athletics we have always been well represented. Members of our class participate in almost every school activity. Next year we shall all find our pot of gold at the end of the trail. The path of our Senior year offers even greater horizons to be conquered. “What a Life” JUNIOR CLASS PLAY "Henry Aldrich, Mr. Bradley wants you in the office again." "What have I done now?" Poor Henry is always being called to the office for one thing or another. It seems he causes disturbances in class, copies from George Biglow, and even pawns the brass section of the band. With the help of Mr. Nelson and Miss Shay, Henry is finally cleared of the fheft. Barbara Pearson, Henry’s best girl, promises to go to the dance with him instead of George. This makes Henry very happy until his mother tells him he will not be allowed to take Barbara unless he rates the highest on a Roman History Exam. Mr. Nelson and Miss Shay have a romance while the rest of the cast furnishes the comedy. The play was directed by Miss Alice Hoye. The cast included: Bill Martin, Maurine Jones, Marilyn Miller, Neva Woolard, Bob Minton, Harold Eldridge, Clarence Freeman, Evelyn Burpo, Jane Dean Swofford, Virginia Wilkinson, Bob Donahue, Hugh Dale Clifford, Bob Horrell, Mary Henderson, Joan Karnes, and Paul Margelli. 26 JUNIOR CLASS OFFICERS Darrell Wearmouth (Treasurer) Bob Donahue (President) George Iubelt (Vice-President) Ernestine Cox (Secretary) WHAT A LIFE" (Junior Play) ★ ★ 27 ★ ★ ★ ★ ★JUNIOR PATHFINDERS John Thomas Anderson Emma Antoline James Avery Thomas Barnard Vivian Barnett Velia Bortolotti Dorothy Barty Frank Bataitus Ervie Beers Arthur Benedetti Teddy Bernhard Lawana Book Yolanda Borelli Pauline Burba Evelyn Burpo Pauline Callahan Patricia Carrol Aileen Chamness Maxine Chance Betty Clancy Mary Jano Childers Bernadean Clayton Dwight Clark Amelia CorniaJUNIOR PATHFINDERS Ernestine Cox Lucille Cross Mona Deason Hervie Dillingham Bob Donahue Betty Dorris Bobby Dorris Ruth Ann Doty Ruth Edison Carl Edmonds Harold Eldridge Norma Jane Eldridge Martha Fickas Eva Fae Fitzgerald Helen Foder Clarence Freeman Margaret Fris R.

The people's choice for leadership during the first year was Joe Hughes and for sponsorship, Miss Alice Hoye and Coach S. A Chcmgnon. As Freshmen, they have been quite active. Approximately fifty boys tried out for football and forty, for basketball. Two Freshmen girls, chosen for personality, represented the class in the Homecoming celebration. Teachers of Freshman classes have commented upon the efficiency and initiative with which the Freshmen have "explored" their school work and extra-curricular activities. Now they are looking forward to their second year with greater enthusiasm. 43 ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★Explorers Row 1.

These are the words you would probably hear if you were in the auditorium on an assembly day. Selected as the students' choice, Samuel Hancock has performed his task well. Sammy, as we know him, is President of the Senior class, sports editor on the Red Bird Notes' staff, and a very ardent sports fan. We may readily remember his weekly feature column, "The Box Seat," by the prevailing "big words," and the interesting way in which the article was written. His journalistic ability has awarded him membership in the Quill and Scroll society. Because he has shown great diligence in the classroom, he was elected into the National Honor Society. Being the tenth to serve his school in this office, he has proved to be an able leader. Sam, always courteous and friendly, is well liked by the students and teachers. ★ 49 ★ ★ ★Who will be queen? ? ? 1 1 1 The Homecoming Committee really featured suspense this year. The Student Body of our democratic F. C. H. S., even though it had elected one of the three high ranking girls as queen, did not know who the honored choice was until 9:30 o'clock that very evening. Which of these three girls would be queen? ? 1 1 This was the question in everyone's mind as the suspense was ended and beautiful Mary Ellen Kinison, escorted by the football captain, walked down the aisle. They proceeded to the throne where she was crowned 1940 Football Queen amidst thunderous applause. She was attractively dressed in a white taffeta formal, that together with her fair complexion, made a striking picture. Her royal accessories consisted of a lovely white satin train covered with lace and innerlined with pink satin. Nestling in her black curls was the sparkling crown of royalty. 50 + + + + + + + +“Our first Lady and Her Socialites” An air of expectancy filled the F. C. H. S. auditorium as the annual homecoming crowd relized the climax of the evening was about to take place. All eyes were turned toward the left aisle as Sue Henson, our 1939 Homecoming Queen, escorted by Clarence Stodghill led the procession. They were followed by Junior attendants: Jerry Fife and Betty Turner, escorted by Bud Posey and Benny Bullington, respectively. Next in line were Sophomore attendants: Margaret Patterson, escorted by Hezzie Hindman and Betty Fife, escorted by Kenneth Simpson. After them came Freshman attendants: Patty Davis, accompanied by Allen Edmonds, and Betty Joe Dynis, accompanied by George Iubelt. Theresa McCray and Jewell Dee Henley, Senior attendants, followed next, escorted by Pete Tedeski and Charles Shostrom. Immediately preceding the queen was Louie Levanti and Frank Tomzik. Following, came Her Majesty the Queen, Mary Ellen Kinison, escorted by Frank Chamak, football captain. At the close of the procession were faculty children: John Robert Crowell and Brant Davis, train bearers, and James Sutton Hastie, crownbearer. A____A___A____A____ ___A____A___AIn the large spacious music room of F. C. H. S. a group of students are gathered to render a few harmonious tunes. Perhaps the Mixed Chorus will sing a sacred anthem, a patriotic song, or the "Choral Alma Mater." Oh just a minute now, don't get excited! It's just Mr. Davis going through a few gymnastics to get across to the Chorus that he wants a crescendo, or perhaps a syncopated rhythm. Yes, they understand fully. Can't you hear the gradual swell, the double F., and then the soft chord? In the Boys’ and Girls' Glee Club you might hear, "In my Green Cathedral," "Songs of the Western Men," or the "Shadows March," sung in swing rhythm. What's that going on in the studios? It sounds as though it might be the "Madrigal Singers." They're giving all they have to an old English song. Just listen! They aren't seeing who can out sing the other. That's the way to sing a madrigal song. Each member sings a different arrangement. There comes a melodious chord in ”F" sharp or perhaps "B" flat fromThe Breeze” studio B by the Girls' Octette. It's When the Sun Goes Down," a sentimental song. The "De Cappah Moon," in a swingy motion brings out the Negro theme. In Studio C is the "Boys' Octette," singing "Babylon's Falling Down." Hold that pitch boys! Don't let it {all too far. That's all folks. The vocal department hopes you've enjoyed the close harmony in its studios. The members of the Ensembles are: Girls' Octette: Mary Milikan, Elma Milikan, Maxine Grubbs, Cora Jean Abston, Betty Lou Ditterline, Evelyn Burpo, Marietta Halloway, Martha Fickas. Boys' Octette: Paul Margelli, Bill Harvey, Warren Grimmett, Quentin Pinkham, Bob Sinks, Kenneth Morris, Clarence Freeman, Bob Smith. Madrigal Singers: Esther Simpson, Virginia Wilkinson, Paul Margelli, Bill Harvey, Clarence Freeman, Bob Smith, Elma Milikan, Martha Fickas. ★ ★ ★ ★ 53 ★Here comes the Band! Everyone turns his eyes in that direction, for again this year, the band has upheld its reputation as an important influence in F. C. H. S. Under the direction of Theodore Paschedag, the band has done much to create an appreciation for good music in our school. This year, for the sixth Annual time, the band played host to the Southern Illinois Band Clinic. Mr. Sawhill, conductor of the University of Illinois Band, complimented it very highly as a high school organization. In April, the State Musical Contest was held in West Frankfort with the members of both band and orchestra taking an active part in its management. The band has made approximately fifty appearances during the school year.Membership f. C. H. S. Band Officers Captain: Charles W.

A. Changnon has pushed on, fought with, and won with the boys, his fourth conference championship. Having only been here six years, four championships is a good record. Harlan C. Hodges, track coach and assistant coach has had many track championships since he came to F. C H. S. It is from his football and basketball teams that the teams of the future years are made. "Mac" McClintock, assistant coach, has the early molding of the boys in his hands. He prepares the boys for Coach Hodges' team. Mr. Tripp and Mr. Chenoweth take care of the "greenies." Here is a real job, teaching boys who know practically nothing about how to play the game. "Bob" Eadie really shines when it comes to keeping data concerning the teams and games. ±. 61 ______ A____± Our Defense Progra Row 1: Tedeski, D. Simpson. Martin, Charnak, Iubelt.

We played a tough game, but were overcome by the swift running of Montgomery, ‘ Murphy", fullback. Although we lost, 13-7, there was always the next game to look forward to. Then, with a flash of fire, we paraded out in our new red suits to meet Herrin. We swept down the field and blitzkrieged the Tigers to the tune of 14-0. Those who journeyed north to the F. C. H. S.-Mt. Vernon game saw the Rams get plastered.” Having already won three hard games, they were confident of winning, but then we struck. Pete Tedeski had the stellar role when he ran 74 yards for a touchdown. The final score was Red Birds 21, Rams 0. On the 18th, we played in three feet of dust at Eldorado and won by the surprisingly low score of 7-6. We met the Harrisburg eleven here on Nov. 2, slashing their lifelines to pieces. Nice running, passing, punting, together with powerful driving pushed the score up to 18-6 in favor of the Red Birds. On a crisp, sunny day, we met the strong Centralia team for our Homecoming game. We ran up and down the field, once getting on the four-yard line. The game ended 7-0 in favor of Centralia. Turkey Day came, cold and rainy. Thousands crowded the field at Benton to see the annual game. The first two quarters were full of fighting with no scoring. In the third quarter Levanti snagged a pass which paved the way for Chamak's touchdown. Thoughout the last part, the crowd held their breath. Benton, unabashed, fought to the final gun; the score F. C. H. S. 6, Benton 0. And so we gave the Creek" back to Benton and became cochamps of the Big 7. 63 ★ ★ Jl“Pop and Hie Boys’’ "------1-----?!-----'!" yelled “Pop", “what's the matter?" This is a typical sound in the night as something goes wrong with the lights, or the water, at the big F. C. H. S.

On the fourth of December the squad returned home from McLeansboro after defeating the favored McLeansboro team. In their first home game the Birds defeated the Galatia squad 35-31. Drubbing ceased to be a word when the Frankfort team returned from Centralia with a 54-26 defeat. Scores were evened as the McLeansboro team defeated the Birds 22-17 on the Bird's floor. Conference hopes looked better than when Changnon's squad defeated Herrin 27-24 in their second conference game. At the annual Mt. Vernon Invitational Tourney the Frankfort squad won fourth place honors by defeating a much favored Mattoon team in an overtime, the first game, and Johnston City in another overtime game. But the third game was lost to Albion, the winner of the tourney. The birds lost to Ziegler also. History was made. The Rams held the ball all the first half without shooting once. But the Birds defeated the Mt. Vernon Rams the second half 25-17. The Red Birds overwhelmed Christopher squad 32-15 on January 4. To the Frankfort fans' delight, the squad defeated their traditional rivals, the Benton Quintette 43-33. Thirty six to nineteen was the score when the gun ended the Frankfort-Harrisburg game with the Birds on the short end. Changnon's quintette lost to Johnston City 29-28 in a very hard-fought battle in the last few seconds to play. The Birds overwhelmed Marion 47-25 for another conference win. The Herrin team won over the favored Birds at Herrin 38-31. Centralia was met by a determined Frankfort squad, but journeyed home with a victory after a hard-fought battle—Centralia 41, Frankfort 33. Benton’s Quintette was overpowered by Changnon's squad 38-26 in a fast game. Mt. Vernon journeyed homeward after having been handed their second defeat from the Birds 42-30. Frankfort fought hard only to edge out a 23-20 victory over Marion. The "jinks” seemed to come again when Harrisburg journeyed here, for Frankfort fell in defeat 30-27. Frankfort evened scores and did a little scalping themselves when they defeated Johnston City 40-37 in an overtime. Zeigler was defeated by our Birds in a thrilling and smoothly fought battle 37-36. In the Regional Tournament held here, Changnon's Quintette won first place honors. In the first game the Birds conquered Christopher 48-23 and handed Benton a jarring setback, 48-24. In the finals the Birds were presented the first place trophy by defeating Zeigler 32-25. In the Sectional Tournament Frankfort won its first game from New Baden 55-28, but lost the second game to Centralia 46-16. 68 ★_____________★_____________★_____________★____________★_____________★_____________★Second Reserves Sitting to right: Wach, Poole, Hays, Maize, Hill, Bidwell and Capt, Hughes.
