We grow up hearing this statement of truth. What we see is but a variation of the original. It is always now. Yesterday was once "today". Tomorrow will be "today". Another truth upon which we have fed. One concludes, then, that life is an optimistic experience. A supply for every need is promised if one searches for and finds the "good news" the now offers. The now-ness of Harlem's history is told within these pages of the Meteor published by the Class of 1946. = 1946 I i HARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL To MISS VALENTINE for whom it is "more blessed to give than to receive", from whom we have gained great benefits, and with whom we have had happy communion we, the class of 1946, dedicate this Meteor.

And we'll all be gay when Johnny comes marching home" — So we sing the refrain of the old song that fits the occasion today as it did the year it was written The Joshuas, Calebs. Horatio Nelsons, and Stonewall Jacksons of modern history one by one are taking their place in civilian life. They lived a story. We read their story. There is a long bridge between them. We will never know — we can only be humbly grateful. To the service men and women of Harlem High School we, the class of 1946, sing! "May their days be days of gladness!"HARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL Administration From the March 1928 issue of The Harlem Herald we take this article: "Members of the social committee of the Harlem P. T. A. are busily engaged in making preparatory plans for celebrating the day of March 26. the time of Harlem Consolidated School's dedication in 1911." As we read on we learn that this red letter day was celebrated for a number of years after, the various organizations becoming hosts of the occasions. As time progressed, however, the reunions were discontinued. The significance of building and dedicating a new school, and, above that, the great value derived from ambitious work carried on in the building have not been forgotten. History books will devote chapters to the years between. In fact, shelves will be lined with them. War and Peace could be the title of another novel relative to the events of this period of history. We were swept twice from the scenes at our front door to the stage of internationalism. The units making up this great stage must function alone. Harlem's administration has always anticipated new trends, and has directed them conservatively. The course of study not alone meets college requirements but also helps the student ''enlarge his borders if he hearkens diligently to Wisdom." We are duly proud that our High School is fully recognized by the State Department of Public Instruction, accredited by the University of Illinois and by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, the highest accrediting organization in this section of the United States. This high rating has been obtained as a result of progressive and effective administrative policies of our Board of Education and Superintendent of Schools, of a well qualified and efficient faculty, and by the addition of much equipment and materials of instruction. These factors strongly outweigh our deficiencies in building facilities. The class of 1946 is grateful to Mr. Hovey who (and they speak with authority) spends school days and vacation days so that our life may be happier and holier.HARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL Faculty "One whose occupation is to teach others" is the definition given to the word teacher in one of the new standard dictionaries. It sounds cold. The very profession connotes tireless labor, patience, persistence, kindness, generosity and the et cotora qualities that are a part of those who teach others. We at Harlem want to express qratitude for these, our friends, who gladly teach. Russell W. Hovey, B.Sc., Ph.M. Superintendent University of Illinois . . .

The changes made in the original Harlem are almost unbelievable. Adding, rearranging, remodeling, enlarging, expanding— given all these and we have Harlem of 1946. We often speak lightly of the readin', writin', and 'rithmetic of yesteryear. In some form or another, however, they are included in the High School curricula today. Whatever is usable, whatever is practical for real living becomes a part of Harlem's program. There is an alertness toward community interests, toward humanistic needs, and toward our position in world affairs. The class pictures hanging in the halls are reminders of other years. The last four years helped to prove the love of the alumni for their Alma Mater. Strong forces have been at work to prove such faithfulness to school. Harlem will not break faith with the hopes and affections of these graduates and of those to come. 1946HARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL A glimpse into the future will show new fields that are bound to materialize. "He who runs may read!" J. Y. graduates tonite. Fifty-five years ago—almost to the day— I graduated. Each year was packed full of living in the home, community, state, and world. Over the loud speaker—new in 1945—our Superintendent Hovey said. "We must work toward a harmonious living together. The school, the teachers and the students are at the top of the agencies here in these United States that will assure a peaceful solution. Let us all pull in the right direction!" These words concluded a message to the students of Harlem school in which Mr. Hovey urged every pupil to become the best possible citizen. Almost simultaneously, Mr. Moore of the guidance office, spoke as follows, "You people will be assigned to the maintenance of our democracy. Let us be prompt in our duties." These were challenging thoughts. Many of our class, of those before, and of those that followed have met the challenge gloriously. And now, J. Y. graduates tonite. June 6. 2001. They call it "commencing" now. J. Y. and I have been pouring over our respective Meteors—yearbooks of 1946 and yearbooks of 2001—this afternoon. Names repeat themselves and are familiar: Estabrook, Greenlee, Perkins, Benz. Cutler. Nelson Burden II, a blonde curly head, won the International medal permitting him to study four years at the University of Iowa, the place designated by the U.N.O. for study in the field of International relations. "You just must come tonite. J. G. (she calls me J. the Great)," said J. Y. But here I am at home living the years again. I hear the words from Room 14, "Like the patient spider build your bridge so that it will hold. The needs are many, personalities must be strong. Come to union with something great."HARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL J. Y.'s world has been given lessons of thrift in living. They realize that the qualities that are not seen are sound. They know that the good citizen must have tolerance, skill, knowledge and charity. During the months February, March, and April of the year 2000, forty students of the Language Department studied at Yalta at the United Eurasian Institute such languages as Russian, German, Italian, French and Sanskrit. While they were gone, Community (that is the name given to Harlem) was host and director to fifty students from the U. E. I. J. Y. tells me that these fifty young people scheduled in toto in the Commercial Field. I wish they could have known our Miss Pettis. We were sure of a good position after two years with her. Another Field in which the total number worked was that which we called the "wood butchery." J remember straightforward, honest Mr. Young. His boys not alone learned to handle tools and construct, they planned for better housing and living. It was largely thru Mr. Young's objectives that these courses now come under the title of "building." The whole second floor of the old building, long since re-designed, is given to Mathematics and Science. J. Y. would not like those classifications. They simply talk of Research. That bright spark, Miss Valentine, directed her students toward the way of today. J. Y. always says, "Oh! I know her. she influenced you to buy my own plane!" Then there was Mr. Horan who put as much energy into the science of the Drama as in the science of numbers. What gave me a pang of homesickness wer? the names John Son-tag II and John Sontag III. J. Y. says that John the second talks a lot about his father. He owed, he said, his choice of work to the kind guidance of his dad. I liked the word kind for it just described our good Science instructor. 1946HARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL The new building of Community toward the East (on what was Evans Field in our day) houses the Fields of Social Sciences, Music, English, Languages, and Art. Here indeed is innovation. When we studied world and American problems and Literature with Miss Schindehette, Mr. Joyce and Mr. Skoff how we would have loved to browze among the archives for correlating dramatic, musical, and art numbers. Now the powerful base instrument, called the Alrutz Laboratory, assures each room that seeing is believing. They actually saw the fifty students at work in Yalta. Just the push of a button and these fields correlate their objectives. There are Libraries in every room. The base Walker Library is devoted to special study in each field. On Valentine's Day this year, J. Y. invited me to attend a reunion dinner at the school's home. They call it Barkley House. Here the young people learn lessons in making a "House a Home." During Lola Bell's many years at Harlem she planned for just such a setting. The Cotton Blossom sun room was especially designed in appreciation of dear Mrs. Adkins. Across the street to the north-east is the new Stadium. I just don't follow the games so well. The new rules are internationally controlled. The Russian Blouse worn by the trackmen are gay. The full sleeves cannot make for warmth on chilly March days. Another happy reminder of the 1940's is Athletic Counsellor Peter Lotzer. Like Father, like Son! I note the same scholarly air, the same faculty of inspiring the youth into the way of wholesome living. The Administration Building on the south-west comer of Community Campus occupies much space in the 2001 Meteor. It houses the Board of Education rooms, the Deans' offices, Alumni Center, Telephone Exchange, Engineering Staff and the Superintendent's Office. The physical changes are many. The ideals of teaching never change—"Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just': . . whatsoever things are of good report"—was the Principle of the past and is the Principle as J. Y. "commences" tonight.3 % .__ ProfsPE.PP6R HEADLINES photo pucwens B R AFTER HOUR e HOME! BUDDIESi AMATEUR SHOW Roland Spongbcrg — Master of Ceremonies rTURNITURE Shop «t th ford Standard LLOYD LAR!

A few crisp leaves were already falling when wo went back to school SEPTEMBER 17. It meant the compression of business in a brief space of time. It was almost as swift as Caesar's communique, "I came, I saw, I conouered." Orders were to drink deeply of the Pierian spring (in the words of Pope) and straightway go home. "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." We quaffed deeply of the summer's administrative vintage. Organization was so completely effected that everyone was able to find his place and function with despatch. OCTOBER—"Hark! Did you hear that sound in the grass? Mayhap a witch or ghost did pass.'" What's that tramping through the halls? Where are you going? CLASS MEETINGS, my good man, class moetings. On OCTOBER 4 the respective classes mot to eloct officers—officers who met the qualifications of leadership, good citizenship, and scholarship. The work of the G-men is intriguing in word and in picture. On OCTOBER 17, Sam Grathwoll profitably ontertained the students with his account of the G-MEN at work. One o! tho big ovents of tho year is the Freshman INITIATION PARTY sponsored by the SOPHOMORE CLASS. On OCTOBER 25 these Frosh showed their colors to good advantage. They were the ideal guests, entering into tho fun like old social veterans. And th6 hosts! They were tops. Everyone declared the event outstanding. You should have seen the ladies tremble on OCTOBER 30 when the Johnson Brothers presented their number, "Your Friends, the Snakes"—Pet Snakes! It was good but squirmy. NOVEMBER—"For the rose and the song and the harvest brought home—Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving I" What's this? Banners flying, pep singing, bright smiles, gay 'kerchiefs and woolen blazers! Come on, let’s gol The first FOOTBALL GAME of the season, NOVEMBER 6, played with Hononegah. This red letter day of Harlem's history was followed by the second game versus St. Thomas—A cold, frosty, chilling ovoning, tho right temperature for the necessary pep. Alumni and frionds, faculty and students assembled in the Auditorium NOVEMBER 8 for the observance of ARMISTICE DAY, a beautiful program commemorating those who have been called to another sphere of living. They took off NOVEMBER 15. these WING SCOUTS with Miss Valentine at the Joy stick. The farewells were spontaneous, given through speeches, song and story. Waving them off into the wide blue yonder, the guests, friends and parents shouted "Happy Landings!" The first sport dance of the season was that sponsored by the H CLUB following the ALUMNI GAME, NOVEMBER 21. The H Club exists for the promotion of wholesome athletic events and for the development of manhood and good sportsmanship. The successful season was guided by Coach Lotzer and officered by Roger Greenlee as PRESIDENT; Jerry Drolsum as VICE PRESIDENT; Harry Perkins as SECRETARY and TREASURER; Jack Cutler and Dave Hoffman as SERGEANTS-AT-ARMS.HARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL NOVEMBER 211 What a day! Posters, meetings, soliciting, ticket selling, prizes, and back again to posters, more meetings, more prizes. From a school room. Room 14 was converted to a big business center. Congratulations to the Seniors who made possible the P. T. A. FALL FESTIVAL of NOVEMBER 24. DECEMBER—"God rest you. Merry Gentlomon, let nothing you dismay. For Jesus Christ our Saviour was bom on Christmas Day." All the best orchestras of the land furnished the music at the JUNIOR DANCE, DECEMBER 7. following the South Beloit game. Ideal hosts and sponsors— Any time. Juniors, we'll be there. MR. HORAN never fails us! Again his Senior players of '46 bowed to a large and appreciative audience. This time it was the carefully directed play "YIMMY YONSON'S YOB," a comedy full of dramatic moments. Holly and tinsel, soft lights and mistletoe. Put them all together, add a beautifully lighted Christmas Tree, soft music, and you have the appointments for the lovely SENIOR CHRISTMAS BALL, of DECEMBER 15. MERRY CHRISTMAS! HAPPY NEW YEAR! God bless us every one! So rang the refrain DECEMBER 21 as we hurried out for a week and a day of WHITE CHRISTMASES. JANUARY—"Ring in the valiant man and free The larger heart, the kindlier hand; Ring out the darkness of the land Ring in the Christ that is to be." The pep, peppy, peppiest dance of the year was that sponsored by the PEPPER, JANUARY 5. Harlem's pross punctuates the pectoral pattern of the public. Look and listen! The AUGUSTAN DANCE, JANUARY 11. They're not sponsoring Zimms this year but they aro still in and on the air. These Augustans! These ablative absolutes provorbially styled mop maids, conscious every moment that "when it is dark enough you can see the stars," that the classics help one to find his way around the world more easily. Headed by Miss Moier, officiated by CONSUL, Pat Nelson; PRAETOR. Charles Branch; CENSOR, Marie Danielson, they are followed by forty or more enthusiastic members. We are always there when the SENIORS entertain. After the Rockton game, JANUARY 25. Nelson's Orchestra! music gave the key for a grand evening. Where's Tuite going tonight, JANUARY 29? To the CAMERA CLUB meeting. This is one of the most alive clubs of the school, picturing as it does the activities of the year. Mr. Sontag, a veritablo scholar in the art of the camera, has many ardent followers. The officers are: PRESIDENT, Jerry Tuite- VICE PRESIDENT. Bob Wood; SECRETARY and TREASURER, Curtis Johnson. FEBRUARY—"Stride on. Democracy! and rise higher than ever yet For you provided we Washington, Lincoln . . ." With candles lighted, in unison they repeat the G.A.A. vows at the G.A.A. INITIATION PARTY. FEBRUARY 6, always a memorable affair. 'It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this." Each year we pause in respect to our martyred President. ABRAHAM LINCOLN. This year on FEBRUARY 8. we spoke and sang once more of "that powerful western fallen star, cf that greet soul that has gone!"HARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL APRIL- "April, April laugh thy goldon laughter Then the moment aftor Weep thy girlish tears." The one big event of this month was the G.A.A. BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT, APRIL 11-12. The new sport gym suits worn by the players gave a Miami Beach resort air. Rahl Yeah! And right here while wo cheer, we want to give nine rahs for the cheer leaders. They gave the pep and the steam to arouse the best in all activities. They have that special stamp identified by onergy, alertness, and fair play. Here's to them! Gloria, Louise, Carlyne, Jean, and Don with their advisor. Miss Valentine—a service medal! MAY—"May comes tripping oe'r the moadows May comes laughing o'or the hills" The 'ological facts plus the spontaneous abandon made the BIOLOGY FIELD TRIP, MAY 3, one of quality. To see is to believe. The JUNIOR PROM! Need one say more? On MAY 4. tho Sonlors wore the guests of tho JUNIORS at one of the prettiest proms Harlom over witnossod. The appointments, the music, the dainty characters from fairy land with their escorts were symphonic in tone and color. Personally endorsed! "Thanks for the memories." An hospitable affair! So they rightly described the SENIOR MOTHER'S TEA of MAY 15. Miss Valentine and her girls are getting that Breakfast Hour fame. It's getting to be traditional, too, these SENIOR CLASS NITES. The Senior Extravaganza directed by Miss Meier pointed the way toward bright horizons. Life is always beginning. No Farewells on MAY 24. just "I'll Be Seein' You." JUNE—"June wants me and I'm to spare . . A notation from the calendar: JUNE 2. BACCALAUREATE SERVICES. A thought to all: "The Lord is my Light and my Salvation; whom then shall I fear." From dawn to darkness of JUNE 6 they picnicked—these gay, enthusiastic, artistic, promising SENIORS. The first spring tonic and no sulphur and molasses! Caps and gowns over biting sunburns? Not alone. Caps and gowns over all the inner intangibles of High School life that are so deeply felt. What will the future bring to you and to me? Listen to the voice of yesterday. "Hitch your wagon to a star." and "Buy the Truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding."HARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL "To make a house a home!" — In thought, that line of the poem becomes the objective of the HOME ECONOMICS CLUB, organized FEBRUARY 8, 1946, under the supervision of MRS. ADKINS. To glorify the unit of civilization, the home, is the aim of this group whose officers for the yoar are: PRESIDENT. Eleanor Hembry; VICE PRESIDENT, Betty Wilson; SECRETARY, Joann Conklin; TREASURER, Ernestine Williams: PROGRAM CHAIRMAN, Shirley Keller; SPONSOR, Mrs. Adkins. "Hide not your talonts!" On FE3RUARY 8, sponsored by Roland Spongberg of WROK, and directed by Miss Meier, the A.O.A. presented the talent of the school community in what was known as the A.O.A. AMATEUR HOUR. This program proved conclusively that Harlem's young people have abundant artistic talents. PRESIDENT, Janice Gourley; VICE PRESIDENT, Harold Cloyd; SECRETARY, Marjorie Harlman; TREASURER. James Benz, and the thirty-eight mombers have been intent on "The best and master things," that there be an altar in every man's dwolling! MARCH—"The winds of March are calling loud . . As we go to press this news comes to our desk: "The MUSIC DEPARTMENT entered five events in the DISTRICT MUSIC CONTEST at Rochelle, Illinois, MARCH 2 and finished with one GRADE ONE rating and four GRADE TWO ratings. Shirley Baldwin, recipient of GRADE ONE, will go on to Sectional Meetings." The new event is an OPERETTA, scheduled for April 26. The first news flashes show LOUISE OLSON and CHUCK MILLER as leads in OH DOCTOR. Already the gay tunes waft their way through the halls. We know with Mr. Alrutz leading, it will be a grand performance. BON VOYAGE! Music reveals the man and in the wisdom of the Ancients it is spelled with a capital M. Mr. Alrutz secures the finest tone, the finest quality from his various groups. The gracious performances add character to the programs of the year. MARCH 8, 1946! At Harlem, play nites are always first nighters! The JUNIOR cast directed by Miss Schindehette, demonstrated that the "play's the thing." Evoryone loves a story. We thank them for telling it so graciously. Congratulations on a grand performance! Girl dates boy! On one occasion at Harlem, the G.A.A. DANCE on MARCH 15, hearts beat a little faster! Corsages and boutonnieres were a little lovelier! Led by Mr. and Mrs. Richard Doyle, the young ladies and their latest Lochin-vars "danced the whole night through." All else fades into insignificance when it's time for the ATHLETIC BANQUET. This charming event is traditional. Everyone comes, knowing that everything will meet his expectations. Miss Pettis is always at her best, setting the pace for a happy time. And right here we want to go on record in expressing gratitude for her loyalty. She never fails to please graduates and post-graduates alike. Heartfelt thanks to all for a lovely evening, MARCH 23. We can readily understand why heaven chose the harp as its master instrument. The AUDITORIUM PROGRAM, featuring Henry J. Williams, Harpist, was greatly enjoyed. The fruits of our labors were viewed on OPEN HOUSE night MARCH 29. The feature programs were especially educational. A fine attendance.ssvjj 10 t mr 9HI' 8 p«uuWING SCOUTS PILOT JOYCE CARLSON CO-PILOT CONNIE BORDEN NAVIGATOR JOAN RAPP RADIO MAN JANfGE GOURLEYHARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL Girls' Athletic Association "I promise to uphold the ideals of the Girls Athletic Association. By promoting interest in athletics and the out-of-doors, by living so that I may be healthy and strong, by making good sportsmanship a constant factor in my conduct.” Advisor Mrs. Marion Doyle Officers Constance Borden, President Mary Lou Kennedy. Vice President Betty Johnson, Secretary Patricia Nelson, Assistant Secretary Violet Nelson, Treasurer Point Committee Joan Rapp. Chairman Carlyne Schlensker Kathryn Lindvall Mary Lou Kennedy In blue jeans and oversized flannel shirts the G.A.A. girls began another active year of sports. Lively Marjorie Hartman, with her able assistant Patricia Nelson, opened the soccer season October 22. Eight games found the "Not-So-Hotras” and the "Dungrarees” battling it out. November 19 marked the end of bruised shins and broken toes. "Step lively girls!" was the snappy call of Dorothy York and Marlene Kinson as the girls began the eight mile hike to Rock Cut, commonly known as the Buddy Hike. The promise of food ahead was enough for a speedy return to school. One more hike followed before hiking was disbanded until Spring.HARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL Volleyball started November 30, with Betty Niffenegger and Jeannine Fair showing us the "correct way" to hit a ball. The Seniors joined the Freshmen to out play the Juniors and Sophomores. Norma Bentson enlisted the aid of Marilyn Taylor to help supervise Shuffleboard which began November 21. Competition was interclass. February 8 through April 10 found the girls being pushed into the most complicated figures by Carlyne Schlensker, assisted by Marlene Kinson. O-o-oh those aches and pains from Tumbling! Pat Eau Claire counted the strikes and spares as the girls and balls flew down the alleys. Intermingled with sports comes the necessary social affairs, the first of which was Initiation. All new members seem to flinch at the mention of that term — I wonder why? The next big affair — and I really mean big — was the G.A.A. Formal Dance. Girls asked boys of course, in fact most of the girls made sure of their dates by asking their men months ahead of time, that was March 15. The most enthusiastic sport of the entire curriculum is basketball. Managed by that dead-eye Senior, Evelyn Bentson, with the help of Betty Johnson. February 15 marked the first day of practice — which was only the first of the twelve before the Basketball Tournament, April 11-12. The State Basket Shooting Contest took place March 26 with ten girls representing Harlem. Our own William Tell, Joan Rapp, with the help of William Tell Jr., started Archery April 16, which lasted to the end of the school year. Lorrayne Wherely, destined to be another "Babe Ruth", and her assistant, Eva Mae Roush, started baseball April 17. And that brings us to this item that appeared in an April issue of the HARLEM BULLETIN of 1924. "The girls in our school are out for athletics as well as the boys. This was shown last Tuesday when about 15 girls stayed after school to play baseball. Since there were not enough fer two teams we just played a 'scrub game.' Altho the number was few wo played a snappy game." To climax the year, the girls played hostess to several schools while sponsoring a Play Day.HARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL Football Short but sweet, is the old saying. It can be used in connection with the football season of 1945. When they got the green light. Coach Lotzer and his men put the "on paper” plays into actual performances. Captain Rog Greenlee led his team in two victories. Harlem 27 Rockton 0 Harlem 19 St. Thomas 14 "The prospect for the 1946 season is good,” said Captains Dick Husen and Chuck Miller, whose lightweights showed themselves as follows: Harlem 21 Harlem 0 Rockton 0 St. Thomas 19HARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL Dear Meteor Editors:- You asked me for my reaction to the athletic program and my part in it. Here goes! This is my last year in High School and to date it is the most enjoyable. I was unable to play football because of an untimely accident; but by the time the basketball season began, I was up and around to enjoy it and to participate in some of the games. My association with the coach was a happy and friendly one. His hints and friendly tips were an immense help to us all. I am indebted to him. I give Mr. Lotzer full credit for making us a respected team in the northern part of the state. As the year draws to a close I regret that there will not be another for me at Harlem. These High School days have been the best. Good wishes to all! f Harold Allen Cloyd Editorial Comment — The heart speaks! Harold writes what we all feel. In this little space the Senior Class of 1946 wishes to pay SPECIAL TRIBUTE to MR. LOTZER. QUALITY COACHING!!! QUALITY TEACHING!!! . ■HARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL Basketball There are ups and downs in every business. It takes a few zig zag lines on a graph, it seems, before the direction is definitely upward. Whenever these hard wood floormen hit. it was hard for them to slow down. The varsity was built around Rog Kinson, Jack Cutler, Jerry Drolsum, Hank Hanson and Dick Oswald. Also, we must give credit to a grand bunch of subs led by Harold Cloyd, Fred Fleming and many others. All of these boys were plenty fast. An occasional loss of players caused a few upsets; but a general fine quality of playing was evident throughout the season. Coach Lotzer gets the maximum efficiency out of his men and keeps them inspired to perform their school work. He has a big turn out, thus giving opportunities to many to display their special prowess. The lightweights, too, had speed and form showing promises for skilled performances next year.HARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL Harlem Consolidated High School Basketball Schedule 1945- 1946 Varsity Lightweights Wo They We They Nov. 21 Wednesday Alumni ...

I betcha there is no more activity on Fifth Avenue than in Harlem Halls! At noon, the boys get a chance to air what's new in sports. Now JIMMY BENZ is all for the best bunch of Harlem guys and their swell coach. Young Latin I GOBER gets the real joy out of his job on the team and finds basketball a favorite game. Between sandwiches BOB EDWARDS gives three cheers for the support of the spectators and the ''cheerleaders.'' You know HARRY PERKINS—When we say ''What's your favorite, Perkins?” He says, brief like but with meaning, "Football - Coach!” Augustan DENNY is a dignified sort of lad. He makes good sentences, "I enjoyed playing with the fellows and being able to work with a swell coach.” Terry has two years to go and should reach the top. We just knew it. JERRY EASTABROOK feels like Perkins. He only wishes that he could have another year of football. Right here the returned veterans step into the picture. Did you see the Alumni Game? Their playing showed how they felt. They fight, in and out of school, for the best. Business man WILLIE LENIUS enjoyed the well organized athletic program, football is his joy. "The coach can inspire," he said, "and he did inspire us all. We're all good fellows together.” Just listen to the ladies — It isn't all spring bonnets, nylons or dates with them. Almost simultaneously BILLIE HARRIS and JOYCE CARLSON said that to witness the games of a school year furnishes the most outstanding and satisfactory diversion. G.A.A. president CONNIE BORDEN is not partial to any one particular sport. She's found plenty of sport in them all. Blythe PAT NELSON can't wait for the football season to start. GLORIA and LOUISE not alone enjpy the games they do something about helping to win them. Did you notice? JOAN RAPP is always there early. She's one of the best fans we have. JESSIE O'DONNELL hopes that the teams to come will be as good as was this year's. "Thanks, to the boys of '46! Success to the boys of '47!” said peppy BETTY HEFFNER. We don't know why, but EVELYN BENTSON was more interested in the Belvidere game than in any other. WANDA HARBOR gives credit where credit is due—MR. LOTZER. Harmonizing §FTTY NIFFENEGER gives tops to the 1946 season. You see this is her fourth year witnessing games. Says she, "The boys play as though inspired.” VIOLET NELSON declares that "There has been such a shining example of good sportsmanship during the whole season; and the team and coach deserve the highest honors.” The column is a long one—We need to break off for space sake! You can read between the lines—Harlem loves their athletic activities. and who wouldn't! A good school! A good game!HARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL Track The 1945 season brought Harlem the North Six Championship. The Varsity won the North Six 889 relay event; the Frosh-Soph relay team won the North Six 440 relay; the Track squad finished a strong second at the Janesville meet and defeated Belvidere and Rockton in dual meets. Van, Hoffman, Minns, Roush, Erickson, Cutler and Hansen won important points at the East Relays and District meet. The 1946 Track team will be built around the following prospects: Henry Hansen—dashes and broad jump; Jack Cutler— dashes, shot, discus; Bob Edwards—hurdles, high jump; Herb Burdick — mile, pole vault, broad jump; Fred Fleming — mile, dashes, pole vault, high jump; Dick Husen—880 and weights; Roger Kinson—weights; Bob Swenson—high jump, broad jump; Maurice Easton — dashes, weights; Harry Perkins — 880; Jimmy Benz — high jump; Charles Miller — dashes; Willard Lenius — weights, dashes; Terry Denny. All of these are back from last year and one's hopes can be high. With them will be the Freshmen prospects and others of the upper classmen who are coming out for the first time. Here is the schedule for 1946 1— Belvidere - Harvard - Harlem 2— Rockton - Harlem 3— Rockford East - Harlem 4— Janesville 5— Rockford East Relays 6— District Meet 7— North Six Conference Baseball In 1945 we fielded our first Baseball team. We all were very pleased. Although they didn't quite get as high as the Cubs, Tigers, or other teams, they made a good showing for our school. This year it is hoped we can play many more games and that in the near future we will be able to see a Winnebago County Baseball tournament. So here's to all the Greenbergs, Hacks, Cuccenelos, Cavarettas, and the rest that we will soon see from Harlem.HARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL The Pepper "W-O-R-K spells newspaper — This editing job may seem a snap to you. You may have it next year when you will conclude, 'Why did you ever take it.' They told me that the Editor's job was easy—I won't exactly tell anyone what I think; but it isn't easy.” The above is quoted from the HARLEM BULLETIN dated February 1925. History repeats itself. The editor's job on a school paper is not an easy one, we agree. What the readers want and what is good to print are two different thoughts. School papers should reveal the tone of the schools. Our American public schools are as free as "A day in June.” Turn to the history of education. Not too happy reading. Our great, great, great, great, great, grandfathers, and farther back than that, suffered and died to give us the gift of twelve years of living in the greatest schools of the world. So we repeat, our school papers must reveal the tone, the spirit of gratitude. The Harlem papers seem to respect this aim. As we go back in our reading, way back to the '20's, we find quality. From the HARLEM BULLETIN to the HARLEM HERALD in 1928, the news was good to print. In the '30's came the HARLEM PEPPER maintaining the same principles but scattering the peppery condiments through the pages. The basic theme remained the same. The style of writing changes with the years. The pace of life during the last twenty years has increased. To express this 'steenth mile and hour' pace demands a lot of petrol, (ask the famous correspondents of the world today). P-e-t-r-o-lat Harlem spells Pepper.HARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL "PEPPER SNEEZERS" Editors Mildred McKern, Pat Smith Senior Reporters Connie Borden, Bob Burden, Jean Crandall, Jack Cutler, Janice Gourley, Roger Greenlee, Marge Hartman, Shirley Hagberg, Evelyn Kronewitz, Betty Niffenegger, Lorrayne Peterson, Rose Ann Rund-quist, Gloria Wright.

Sponsor Frank SkoJf 194 6HARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL The Meteor An article in the HARLEM BULLETIN dated February 1, 1923, reads as follows: "The Class of 1923 hoped and planned to publish an Annual before they left the school. Their dreams were suddenly shattered when they found that the expense of publishing would be far beyond their means." Who doesn't appreciate that article? Nobody who was somebody on the Meteor Staff. As they look over the four columns of past accounts (not including the cents) they wonder! How did they make it during the war years? Listen to a variation of the old rhyme: "Binders won't assemble printing Printers can't promise paper Paper shops short on film Film shortage means few pictures Pictures add spark to Meteors" Now the next line should read "Meteor won't be sold this year." It just won't fit into the jingle because Meteors were published during the "storm and stress period," and delivered on time (with no accounts in the red). A Yearbook is a review of a year's work in picture and story. It is devoted to the best interests of the school. It seeks to promote pride in good citizenship, scholarship, and leadership; to effect an improvement in student attitudes and relations; to respect the wishes and concerns of the alumni; and to arouse a love of school. Look for the slogan: "There'll be a Meteor in your future!" 1946HARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL Meteor Sparks'7 EDITORS Shirley Hagberg Constance Borden Gloria Wright Joan Rapp Betty Johnson Violet Nelson Marjorie Hartman ART EDITORS Janice Gourley Joyce Carlson Eleanor Hembry FINANCIAL MANAGERS Richard Johnson Jerry Estabrook Roger Greenlee Jerry Larson BUSINESS MANAGERS Robert Wick Lorrayne Peterson Harry Perkins Louise Olson Evelyn Kronewitz Billie Harris Robert Burden Jean Crandall Jack Cutler Jimmy Benz Wanda Harbor SPONSOR Leona B.
