• HARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL • Foreword We, the Seniors of 1949, are leaving in the Meteor a record of this year's events that have occupied first place in our minds and hearts. Harlem has become an integral part of us. No other school will mean quite as much to us as it has, for here we have learned lessons in patience, in sportsmanship, in friendliness, and in sharing with others. From our teachers we have received not only knowledge, but also ideals which should complement our learning. Only time will prove how skillfully we use them. In our school we have laughed, danced, sang, studied, felt the sting of disappointment, made mistakes, profited by our mistakes, received honors, been reprimanded, learned to accept responsibility, and learned the pleasure of growing into personalities that we can admire: in short, we have lived. We leave with a feeling of gratitude and love in our hearts for Harlem, our Alma Mater. • NINETEEN HUNDRED AND FORTY-NINE •• HARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL • Dedication To Donald Boomhower who should be graduating with us we dedicate this nineteen hundred and forty-nine Meteor. Donald was killed August seventh, nineteen hundred and forty-eight. • NINETEEN HUNDRED AND FORTY-NINE •• HARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL Table of Contents FOREWORD DEDICATION ADMINISTRATION METEOR STAFF SENIORS JUNIORS PEPPER STAFF SOPHOMORES CALENDAR FRESHMEN MUSIC G.A.A. AND CHEERLEADERS CLUBS ATHLETICS ADVERTISING • NINETEEN HUNDRED AND FORTY-NINE •HARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL • Administration Robert M. Hutchins, Chancellor of University of Chicago, has this to say about our educational system: "Americans have never had to be intelligent. America has grown strong and rich, not because of its system of education, but in spite of it." We have come to realize that education does not bring wealth as such. Our school, along with thousands of others, is trying to educate for a good life, not monetary gain. High schools can give only a taste of "this and that." Boys and girls must judge from those tastes which avenues of knowledge they wish to pursue. Our problems today are manifold. Our President is working arduously for world peace. World peace must begin at home and in the school. Our teaching must include learning to respect the rights of our neighbors, overcoming our prejudices and weighing all information, reverencing our Maker, and keeping an open healthy mind toward the future, if our students are to live the "good life." The Board of Education has cooperated with Superintendent Hovey in trying to make Harlem High School a good school. The fact that it is accredited with the University of Illinois and the North Central Association proves that they have secured a satisfactory teaching staff and utilized to the best advantage the small space of an old and crowded building.

NINETEEN HUNDRED AND FORTY-NINE •HARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOI The Juniors The Junior Class lost several of their number for various reasons, but new ones entered and brought their ranks up to about equal that of their sophomore year. Their advisors, Mrs. Welbes and Mr. Joyce, worked very hard to help them give a successful prom. Mr. Horan's health did not permit him to direct the play, and Mrs. Wood took over and did a very good job. The interests of the class are varied; however, athletics comes first. They elected as their class officers the following people: President .... Vice-President Secretary .... Treasurer .... ..

The aims of the Harlem High School Pepper are to give the students a chance to voice their opinions on subjects related to the school and to promote school spirit, teamwork, and co-operation. This the Pepper has been striving to do since the early twenties when it was known as the Harlem Bulletin. Later it was changed to the Harlem Herald until in 1913 it acquired its present name of the Pepper.

Pledge “I promise to uphold the ideals of the Girls Athletic Association.

Mrs. Turney............................... Advisor Eva Mae Roush.............................President Dorothy Husen........................Vice-President Arlene Houston ........................ Secretary Pat Palmer......................Assistant Secretary Carliene Reichstein.......................Treasurer To start out the year we had the rough and tough game of soccer. This was coached from the sidelines by Marilyn Taylor. This game is known for the bruised shins and broken toes resulting. We went into volley ball after soccer and as long as we had a short season of soccer Marilyn Taylor was appointed to be head of it also. Tired of soccer? Well, then, let's go for a hike. A well planned buddy hike was appreciated by all freshmen. Dorothy Cutler made the plans for all our outings. Yea! Winter is here and that means basketball. Teams were chosen and were ready to play. This is the most important game to the girls at Harlem. Vivian Larson was at the head of this. Did you get any spares or strikes? Let's ask Janice McCarty; she has all the records. We were rated fifth place in the telegraphic bowling tournament. Nice going, girls. Does anyone want to take a chance on broken arms, legs or their neck! Then let's go up on the stage and watch the tumblers. You will find Donna Peterson (Soph.) giving instructions up there. Strike 3. You're out! The baseball season has started, and Carliene Reichstein picks out the different teams we have to compete against. This pretty well brings the season to a close. The two main social events of the year was the initiation and the G.A.A. formal dance. The girls, of course, had to ask their escorts. The theme was the "Sweethearts Ball." It turned out to be a gay affair. At the end of each year the presentation of awards and the election of officers will be held. Then the new officers will carry on from where the old ones left off. • NINETEEN HUNDRED AND FORTY-NINE •• HARLEM CONSOLIDATED HIGH SCHOOL • G.A.A.

She spoke and showed slides of Mexico. Our next speaker was Mrs. Xanten, who also spent last summer in Mexico. She supplemented her talk with many interesting souvenirs. Then came Miss Maurice Quandt, just returned from eighteen months of study in Europe. She spoke of Spain primarily. Our last speaker was Mrs. R. Spottswood who spoke on Mexico and likewise added interest to her talk with souvenirs. The highlight of the year was the Christmas program. In Mexican tradition the members of the club reenacted ’ Las Pasadas.'' the searching by Mary and Joseph for an inn. "Las Pasadas was followed by a dance and the breaking of "La Pinata," a decorated container tilled with candy. The Spanish Club includes all students taking Spanish. The object of the club is to acquaint the Spanish students with our South American neighbors. We owe much to the advisor for a successful year.

Friends and acquaintances forget in a short time whether you lost or won. but they will not forget how you played the game and how you lost or won.

About twenty boys responded to the first call for candidates. Five conference games were scheduled as follows: April 5 April 12 April 19 April 26 May 3 at Hononegah at South Beloit . at Kirkland Genoa at Harlem Aquin at Harlem Although most of the squad is inexperienced, it is felt they will improve rapidly and prove worthy competition for any school they play. The following boys make up the squad: Lloyd Nordquist, Harold Combs. Natali Trapani, Charles Epling, Rocco Fiordilisi, David Abbott, Robert Border, Robert Stufflebeam, Walter Stenzel, Ray Rogers, Milton Evans. Duane Hovey, Warren Layng. Track On March 28. the call for Track candidates was issued with approximately fifty boys reporting for the first workout. Denton Bolton, Robert Stufflebeam, Richard Hanson, and Robert Franklin are the holdover lettermen from last year. Upon these boys will fall the major assignments in shaping up this year's track team. Many promising Sophomores and Juniors are reporting for their first year of track and should improve greatly before the end of the season. Our main goal for this season is to win the first track meet held by the SHARK Conference. At the time of printing the Harlem thinclads have participated in one meet, a triangular affair with Hononegah and South Beloit. The meet was won by Hononegah with Harlem a close second and South Beloit third. The Track schedule is as follows: April 14 — Hononegah and South Beloit at Rockton April 22 — Interclass meet at Harlem April 29 — South Beloit at Harlem May 7 — East Rockford Relays at Beyer Stadium May 11 — Shark Conference Meet at Beyer Stadium May 14 — District Meet at Beyer Stadium NINETEEN HUNDRED AND FORTY-NINE •The Meteor extends its thanks to these business houses for their subscriptions: Allen’s Crockery Loves Park Florist American Cabinet Co.
