from Whose fields have sprung the towns of South-

Frankfort from a tiny settlement to a thriving cityg
to the one Whose funds have provided our schools,
the First Line of Defenseg to the guardian of our
churches, which protect our faith in the futureg to
Old King Coal, our benefactor.

derive its sustenance from its own industry. So long as it fails to do
this it will be a burden for its support upon the larger economic or-
ganization of which it is a part. The West Frankfort community has
two natural resources upon Which it must rely for its economic well-
being. They are coal and agriculture. lt also has an abundant
supply of intelligent labor.
The possibilities of these three resources have hardly been
touched. Coal as West Frankfort knows it is a fuel only. No effort
has been made in this community to process coal into its hundreds
of by-products. Agriculture has been shunned because in the past
it has failed to provide the kind of living desired by most young
people of the present day. Little has been done to raise agriculture
to the plane of scientific farming and no effort has been made in our
community to process agricultural products into their many industrial
uses, that is, to farm for industry.
As a result of these failures to make the most of our natural
resources the employment outlets for our youth have been so few
that most of our youth after graduating from high school have left
the community to seek employment elsewhere. A high school gradu-
ate represents a minimum investment of ten thousand dollar's of this
community's resources. From the strictly economical point of view
up to the time of his graduation he has been a community liability.
At the very time that he reaches the capacity of becoming a commun-
ity asset he leaves the community to become valuable working capital
for the community into which he goes. His new community begins
immediately to capitalize upon the investment made in him by this
community. With scores of young people leaving this community
every year to become intelligent labor elsewhere the magnitude of

West Frankfort's investment in other communities soon becomes evi-
dent. lf these young people are to be kept at home, West Frankfort
must provide them outlets for employment.
lf the West Frankfort community is to maintain a "favorable
balance of trade" it must do two things. First, it must through some
leadership catch a vision of the future which will awaken this com-
munity not only to its possibilities, but to its absolute necessities if
it is to be economically self-supporting. With this vision it must
acquire a faith in its future and the courage to do those things neces-
sary to guarantee that future. Second, it must build industries on
the foundation of its natural resources such as Will provide outlets
for employment and keep our ablest young people at home. This
means the establishment of both coal and agricultural processing
plants which Will enable us to use our natural resources not only for
fuel and food but for their hundreds of industrial uses as Well. This
will furnish employment outlets for our scores of young people who
are graduating from our high school and leaving this community
every year. When this time comes our school Will try to keep pace
with the needs of its community and will establish vocational courses
to train for the skills needed in the particular industries which our

The whistle blew and 200 workmen enrolled as Rock Picker in
one of the largest "coal mines" in Southern Illinois. They contributed
their bit for the good of the F.C.H.S. mine, and the following year
proudly took their places as Shot Firers.
The next year they did their part and this time were raised to
Trip Riders. Many is the trip they rode for the good of the mine.
Their goal was in sight. And now it was there-they were Track
Bob Minton took over as general superintendent to begin the year
right. The mighty football machine of '42 provided them with fore-
man, Heza Hindman and his husky aides, George lubelt, Earl Martin,
with Iohn Gouse coming over from the basketball division. Miss
Betty Turner ruled as "Queen of Beauty" with Geraldine Fife and
Pansy Io Moss as her beauteous attendants. Their activities were
directed by Mrs. Winifred Henson and Mr. B. L. Crowell. "American
Passport" directed by Miss Alice Hoye, was a smash hit, and proved
their dramatic ability. Neva Woolard completed a successful four
year career as cheerleader. The football and basketball teams were
sprinkled generously with Track Layers.
They had enjoyed a glorious four years, and now, equipped with
all the experience the "mine" could give them, they prepared to con-
tinue laying tracks in the outside world.

How Dear Was M Hometown
Homeward bound to an Old King Coal Festival! lust as though the clock had
turned back its hands to several years ago, I would once again be a child, joining the
gaiety and merriment of the townspeople, frolicking at their annual festival. The very
thought was exciting.
Now I was drawing nearer. I had just passed the delightful Benton creek, so typical
of Benton. Familiar sights, sounds, and smells were helping me remember the good old
days. A lady hitch-hiker! It couldn't be, but it was-Ernestine Cox, who had run away'
to become a torch singer.
Well, here We were at last. My own town. But it was changed! Different. All I
could see were skyscrapers-four stories high. The sign on the building said, "Martin G
Martin, Attorneys at Law," and under that, "We handle divorce cases, but delicately!"
Paul and Bill Martin, of course. Who else would try to make W. F. another "big little
city" like Reno?
But wait! There was a commotion in the street. It was friend Dayton McReaken
trying to arrest three women for stealing fireballs. Looked like Ruby Matthews, Esther
Stacey, and Marcella Willard. Well, time changes everything.
Passing Barrett's, I noticed a sign, "Eat Iam and Ielly with Paul Margelli." My old
enemy had done well for himself. I parked my Hudson and went in. A tall, thin gentle-
man came forward to greet me. It was P. M. He was so pleased he ordered my dinner
"on the house." Imagine! An all-girl orchestra, with Mary Lou Hudgens conducting,
then came on the platform. Mary Lou sang the theme song, "Elmer's Tune," and I could
see Willie Lois Perkins tootin' the trumpet, lane Swofford beatin' on the drums, Aileen
Chamness swingin' on the sax, Edith Thompson giving the piano the boogie-woogie, and
little Alice Thompson hittin' the big bass viol. What was the world coming to?
I sauntered down the street casually. A tinkling chime caught my attention. It was
the Good Humor Man, Wallace Reid, Ir., decked out in white, and selling ice cream.
Half a block down, I espied Iohn Thomas Rowles, uniformed in the same way.
Walking past the State Theatre, I observed the ad: Bob Rawson and His Swinging
Cowgirls in "Rawson Rides Again" starring Betty Iohnson, Helen Foder, Mary Henderson,
Ruth King, and Evelyn Burpo. Passing the popcorn stand, I heard Dorothy Tweedy's
voice crooning, "Popcorn, lUc a bag, tax included!" Eating popcorn, I continued down
Main Street. Attracted by the lovely clothes in the window and "Bob Burg, Mgr," I
entered Burg's just in time to see the fashion show. Tall, beautiful girls were gliding
past, among whom I recognized Pat Sadnavich, Lizzie Mae Hughes, Evelyn O'Neil, Mar-
garet Short, Imogene Will, and Pearl Crow. Local beauty wasn't bad at all!
Across the street at the Strand Theatre the bill-of-fare shouted: "See Glamour King
and Queen of the Movies, Hezzy Hindman and Eva Mae Rennie, in 'lf I Could Only
Dance Like Louie.' "
Looking in the Rosalie Shop, I saw Maurice "Seabiscuit" Holland washing the win-
dows. He told me he'd made a career of it-even had seven assistants: Ioe Falletti, Wilbur
Nickelvich, Bill Moore, George Iubelt, Iohn Parkhurst, Garldine Rose, and Bennie Roe.
I detoured to the city hall to get a drink of water, only to find Clarence Freeman
vigorously sweeping up the dust. He had been elected janitor unanimously. Hearing
violent language, I walked past the bars and saw Frankie Bataitus sitting therein. He
was in for bigamy, for marrying Rosemary McCloskey and Mary Millikan. His com-
panion in misery, I noticed, was Tubby Tefft, whose reason for being there was too, too
Back to Main Street, I saw that Mason Willmore had betrayed his own by going over
to the American Brokerage to buy some work socks. Lee Nestler had become famous
on the Nestler-Newberry, Inc., sign. The Dimmick Hotel was featuring a famous orchestra
from Hollywood, "Moan ci Groom" with Walter Stone and his Thirteen Little Rocks. For
curiosity's sake, I went in, First, I saw Lulu Levanti shining shoes, and second, james
Avery, sitting majestically at the clerk's desk. In the ballroom, ostentatiously done in
cardinal and grey, an act was going on. Gene Glenn was giving his rendition of
"Mammy" with a sob in his voice, and a teardrcp in his eye. But touching! Next came
a tap dancer who looked very much like Harold Eldridge, and then the Four Glammer
Gals, Oralene McReaken, Corine Hudson, Mary B. Sumner, and Iewel Wall, sang "Some-
one's Rocking My Dreamboatf' The band then struck up a fanfare and a flock of lovely
chorines began a ballet dance. Among them I saw Anna Lee Taylor, Eloise Munsell,
Marilyn Miller, Margaret Ruscin, Imogene Russel, and Helen Rymza. The show was over
and people were dancing again. I especially noticed Connie "Krupa" Smith, Darrell
"Dorsey" Wearmouth, and Matt "Miller" King, and their cute featured singer, Iinny
Louise Vineyard and Allan Edmonds were celebrating their wooden wedding anni-
versary, and at the next table I heard Pansy Io Moss announce her engagement to
I. B. Willmore. Bill Childers and Hugh Gifford had eyes only for two-.
I went out for a last general glimpse of the merrymaking, and looking over the scene,
realized that forever and always, natives of West Frankfort, would return-again and again
to the land of Old King Coal.

"This year the iTrip Riders' have been taking their mental cars,
loaded With knowledge, along the tracks laid by Seniors in F.C.H.S.
mines. They have made many friendships because of their willing-
ness to cooperate with other workmen. Many have Worked with their
hobbies, which include basketball, football, and music-all necessary
for health and vitality of the minds. Bosses of the trip-riding crew
are Iohn Moake, Kenneth Simpson, Max Morris, and lames Laughran,
President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer, respectively. The
Iunior class play, "All Through the Night," under the direction of
Miss Alice Grant, was a great success. When the cars were derailed,
the faithful helpers, Miss Mildred Cox and Harry "Mac" McClintock,
were present to help put them back on the tracks."

This Class of people has come up in the world. somewhat. Last
year they were Rock Pickers. They have taken out the desirable
qualities such as Cooperation, Friendliness and Courtesy and have
discarded the Ash and Sulphur. Now they are the Shot Fire-rs. At
first, some almost needed a stick of dynamite set to them to get started,
but most all were fired with ambition and the dynamite was cast aside,
for they were all shooting for a certain desired goal. When all had
become organized, Mr. S. A. Changnon and Miss Alice Hoye were
hired as overseers of the crew. The foremen chosen were President,
Eugene Holland, Vice-President, Ioe Hughes, and Secretary-Treasurer,
Bud Roby. The Shot Firers' contributions to the Homecoming court
were two Sparkling Flames of Beauty: Betty Gore and Inez Smith.
When the blast was shot at the beginning of the year, no one knew
what would come from it, but by the time the Shot Firers' goals are
reached in '44, some of the most precious minerals will be obtained.

PIT CO MITTEEMEN
The West Frankfort Student Council, organized in the spring of
l94l, is composed of four students from each class and four delegates
at large, making a total membership of twenty students from the
entire student body. The Student Body President is presiding officer
of the council.
Members are elected by all the students of F.C.H.S., and serve for
a period of one year. The Council operates under a constitution made
by the members of the first council. lt is advisory, not administrative,
The chief objectives are to develop student responsibility, initia-
tive, leadership and school pride, to provide for student expression,
to promote worthy citizenship training in the school, to centralize and
develop student activities, and to provide a representative organiza-
tion for the student body.
ln line with the present emphasis upon democracy in school
administration, there is a great interest today in student participation
in school activities.
The sponsors of the Council are H. W. McClintock, R. L. Crowell,
and E. L. Bain.

DONNIE DORRIS, GLORIA CORNIA
Amid suspense, as the evenings entertainment drew to a close, all eyes
were turned to the left aisle of the auditorium in search of the answer to the
most pressing question of the moment, WHO WILL BE QUEEN?
Preceding Her Royal Highness to the throne, came the Royal Court, led
by Mary Ellen Kinison, retiring queen, on the arm of Louis Levanti, co-captain
of the football team. Then came Donnie Dorris and Gloria Cornia, Freshman
attendants, followed by Betty Gore and Inez Smith, Sophomore attendantsg
then, Margaret Patterson and Shirley Cruse, Iunior attendants. Pansy Io Moss,
Senior Lady-in-Waiting preceded Geraldine Fife, Maid of Honor. Imme-
diately preceding Her' Royal Highness came Crown Bearer Iimmy Tripp and
Football Bearer Robert Eadie, Ir. Flower Girls, Abigail Stone and Meredith
Ann Mitchell sprinkled flowers before the Homecoming Queen of l94l.
Suspense was ended and the question answered as beautiful Betty Turner,
escorted by football co-captain, Heza Hindman, came down the aisle. Amidst
a clamor of applause, the two proceeded to the throne, where she was
crowned and kissed according to the old F.C.H.S. tradition.
Her Majesty was charming in a billowing gown of white taffeta. The
royal crown, nestled among her blond curls, with a background of blue, made
a most alluring picture.

RED BIRD NOTES STAFF
Few people appreciate the great amount of time and
painstaking effort expended in the preparation of an annual
for a school the size of F.C.H.S. The biggest problem is to
stay Within our financial budget, enlarged only by student
subscriptions. Because we must Wait until major school events
take place, Work must be done on a scheduled basis in an
attempt to record by Word and photograph a permanent book
of school memories. Our publisher, Mr. I. W. Patterson, re-
marked, "I receive more favorable comments on the Bed Bird
than on any other yearbook of the same price range."

games cmd back the
team to the fullest cc:-
As "head driller" for sports, coach Changnon came to F.C.H.S. in
1935 with little hope of unearthing valuable athletic materials. Never-
theless that year due to determination, cooperation and good sports-
manship, his eleven champion products were mined. Since that time
he has superintended five crews that have yielded champion outputs.
This year the Red Birds were undefeated and were the highest scoring
team in lllinois.
Harlan C. Hodges, track coach and assistant in coaching football
and basketball, has had many track championships since coming to
F.C.H.S. His second teams in football and basketball left an impres-
"Mac" McClintock, assistant coach, has been a member of the
coaching staff for many years and provided good material indeed for
Hodges and Changnon to use later. Mr. Chenoweth and Mr. Tripp
help coach the Freshmen in football, "Bob" Eadie With his pencil
and score book kept the statistics for the team.

The concert band is composed of eighty members
this year-the largest band that F.C.H.S. has ever had
in its entire history. The band is a very active organi-
zation and performs for all events sponsored by the
school. During the past year this organization has
appeared more than fifty times in public, including the
various musical contests of our state.
Although the orchestra is small in number, it is
mighty in its musical performance and service to the
school. This fine musical organization, composed of
the outstanding musicians of the instrumental depart-
ment, has played for many school activities this past
season, such as the Iunior and Senior plays and special
patriotic programs. This organization has complete
instrumentation which enables it to perform the highest
type of music and also modern popular numbers.
Theodore VV. Paschedag is the director.
