MINERS' ' 53 SEA SON The 1953 football team, although green from lack of experience, ended their season with an impres- sive record of four wins and five losses. Although the Miners' record showed more losses than wins it did not tell the true storyg on many occasions a break here and there at the right time would have given the Miners the margin of victory. This year's team was highlighted by a good defensive line as well as some hard-running backs.

Q O The purpose of the Junior Classical League, a group sponsored by the American Classical League, is to foster and keep alive an interest in our classical heritage from Greece and Rome. The activities of the Junior Classical League vary from year to year, but almost every year some emphasis is placed upon the study of the classical myths because their influence is still a part of the cultural background of educated people today. During the past several years the group has sponsored a tour of the campus of the University of Illinois. This tour includes a visit to the art exhibits in the architectural building, and a visit to the classical and European history museums in Lincoln Hall. This year the Junior Classical League will try to arrange another trip to the University of Illinois for those interested in seeing all the interesting subjects at the university.

They are seeking for their friends and themselves the highest standards of life and conduct. Their expressed purpose is "To create, maintain and extend throughout the home, school and community, high standards of Christian Character. " The Tri-Hi-Y of Gillespie High School was organized in 1938. At that time, membership was limited to twenty members of the Juniors or Seniors. Each year, new members were chosen by the old members to take the places of those who had graduated. The club became affiliated with the National and State Councils of Tri-Hi-Y Clubs in 1945, and has maintained its affiliation since that time. Since 1945 the membership has been open to any Junior or Senior girl who is willing to make the club purpose her own. Miss Gail Yost has been the sponsor of the club for the past eight years. The club meets the first and third Mondays of every month. Some of its projects this year were: sending clothes to the Salvation Army, taking part in the National Polio Drive, and sponsoring the annual Christmas Dance.

These young men did so well that the idea grew and spread. The Hi-Y is a group of boys banded together in fellowship to cooperate with the church in the endeavor to make the total life of people more Christian. The Hi-Y movement has spread throughoutlevery continent and nation in the world. The functions of the Hi-Y are many, some of the functions are: 1. To institute and to develop school traditions. 2. To secure general interest in the club and its programs. 3. To participate in school activities.

This year it was reorganized with "Chief" Tenikat and Charles Heinz sponsoring it. Any boy who has a varsity letter in any sport is eligible to join the club, If a boy goes out for a sport and then quits he is automatically dropped from the club. The "G" Club has raffled off a hand tooled purse and obtained the concession stand for several basketball games. The money earned is used to purchase tickets for some athletic event, such as a college football or basketball game. The club also went to St. Louis in early September to see the Globetrotters' game. One main purpose of the "G" Club is to develop courage, ambition, and the desire to play, into boys and thus build better football, basketball, track, and baseball teams. This fund is to purchase a 16 mm. movie camera to be used in photographing football or basket- ball games so that the players will be able to correct their errors.

This annual, The Echo, was compiled by a staff of eleven students, each student having a certain part of the work assigned to him. This annual had a simple paper cover with plain gold letters. The printing in The Echo was also very ordinary, as were most of the photographs. Today's annuals are of padded covers, upon which artistic designs have been placed. The lettering in these books is of varied styles, and has more or less gotten away from the old typewritten form. This year's annual staff consists of twenty members under the supervision of Miss Utt and Mr. Ver- ticchio. Darlene Brown is the editor of the book and is in charge of most of the work. The rest of the staff is divided into various groups such as sports, class pictures, etc. Work on the book is done during the open hours of the student members, and after school. Mr. Gerald Roth is the commercial photog- rapher for the yearbook. The purpose of the annual is to provide students with a means of retaining the memories of their high school activities.
