It is therefore our intention to emphasize the fact that we have hnished and not to say that we started our course back in '27. The very act of finishing implies a start at something. Therefore, it is the privilege of those who finished to enumerate the reasons for success. ln '27 fifty-two Freshmen bravely plunged into the morass of a higher knowledge. Talent was centered on the political campaign. The returns were: president, -lames Kratzg vice-president, Charles XVatts: secretary, Everett Glasgowg treasurer, Clarence Plankenhorn. A treasurer and no funds! This difficulty was solved by a bakery sale, and with the accumu- lation of wealth began our social career. Some found the venture of the previous year above their heads and dis- appeared from sight. Charles Vkfatts was our leader, with Doris Ellis as vice-president, Annabel Royce as secretary, and Robert Jones as treasurer. Thirty-live still followed the appointed path in the Junior year. The offices went to Clarence Plankenhorn, president: Bob Jones, vice-presidentg Bill Scott, secretaryg Bud XVheeler, treasurer. Qur artistic ability was re- warded by the prize for the best looking lioat in the Senior Circus. The Junior play filled the treasury and the Junior-Senior banquet emptied it. The final year of our high school career saw a successful Senior Circus, for which we earnestly attempted to find something new and as different as possible. The event and climax of the activities of each class-the Senior play-concluded our four years at M. C. H. S. "Bud" XVheeler has led the Seniors as president through a memorable year. All the virtues of friendliness are embodied in this "happy-gi1-lucky" boy. "Bud" is a good student as well as being prominent in school activities. .Xnnabel Royce, with her sweet disposition, has proved a gem of the Senior Class as vice-president. I-ler diligence has been rewarded by high scholarship and leading parts in the social life. "Bill" Holmes is the secretary of the Senior Class. "Bill" is a conversa- tionalist gifted with an entertaining humor. His friends are many and he himself is the definition of personality. Doris Ellis as treasurer attends to the business of the Senior Class. She is friendly and smiling. "Ellis" has a high place on the lleacon staff and is another reason for our high scholastic standing. rm ff I EEF- J: rex I i- - "' is jgag il S -Af f Lg - 1. 'l 'w ww ' e Q...

However, she excels in anything she undertakes, from singing to dish- washing. "Guy" is a transfer this year from Dietrich. He has made his mark as a basketball player. He is very likeable and remarkably easy to be- come acquainted with. ,lack came from Hammond in his Junior year. The fact that Jack is tall and easy to look at is no doubt the reason for his following of grade school girls. A versatile creature, as a pianist, golfer and student, "Marj" is with the best. Her hobby is displaying her vocabulary-both native and for- eign. A blonde, who prefers gentlemen. "Granny" is very jolly and carefree and the temper that goes with red hair is usually con- cealed. She is a leader among her friends and is outstanding in Girl Scout work. "Stan", better known as "Oowa", stands among the highest in his studies. He finds plenty of time to play, but when work is to be done, he has it done. The "Watt" of all-Okaw fame. That athletic being of athletes. His motto is, "If a thing is worth doing at all, it is worth doing well". Nick lives up to this even in his innocent fun. The fact that "Jo" is the pep dynamo of M. C. H. S., radiating more enthusiasm than anyone else, accounts for her being president of the M. W. O. L. Club and cheer leader for two years. l18l , ,E 1- -31 . l flgl f-iz, "1flv"! A friend in need? He is a friend in- deed! A good word to all: from all a good word. NVithout him, many a job would be left unfinished-even undone. "Rosy" tbecause of her cheeksl is very quiet and reserved to those who do not know her, but among her friends. jolly and talkative. Not everyone can be cheerful after having chickenpox the very week of semester exams, her hrst absence from school, but that is Elsie's spirit, which makes her well liked by everyone. "Bob" gazes on the world with a pair of twinkling blue eyes: his ever-ready wit bubbles over. and everyone is merry. He is earnest in his work and nonchalant in his actions. As president of the Freshman Class, "Pud" gave us an excellent start. He is very quiet and easy-going until he enters the held of battle and the honor of his school is at stake. Then, behold! "Peggy" spent the first three years of her high school career at Butler but her pleasant smile and cheerful disposition have won her many friends during her short stay with us. Goodnatured and of a friendly personality. "Georgie" is always looking for some way in which to help her friends. Although she has many accomplishments, she does not care to stand forth in her glory. "Lindy" came to us as a Sophomore. He is very likeable and willing and, despite his small stature. he has found a place on the varsity bas- ketball squad. l19l l i 11 JQHMLWL1-fwf zAe,.,i,M,7 i JdfU l Jac!

"Pnl" is quiet, demure. and amiable, but she has many intimate friends among her classmates and teachers. She can always be depended upon to do her part-or more. "Fred" is a well-liked fellow, and the artist of our class. He is a willing worker at any task and an active member of the Glee Club. "Clarney" carries a great burden in the length of his last name. Nevertheless, he has carried it to fame, both in the classroom and athletics. "Kate" is quiet and determined, always ac- complishing what she starts to do. seemingly with no effort or confusion. Kate is a popular girl. "Audry" has a will all her own, which is shown by her deeisiveness in arguments. Per- haps the red hair is an influencing factor. Her pleasing personality attracts many friends. Glenn is a good, big football player, prob- ably due to his skill as an orator and his adverse nature. His name always appears on the honor rolls, operetta and play casts. "Hill" is basketball a11d football manager, a quiet but interesting fellow. He is a big help to our scholastic record, a hard worker, and is always striving for something better. Mary Katheryne is a newcomer this year, though not a stranger, for her friends are many. VVith her famous giggle and her high scholastic standing, we are proud of her as a classmate. i201 y 51 fd- e f - Helen is a very quiet and unobtrusive girl. She never says much but her actions tell that she is everyone's friend. She serves in what- ever position she is placed. "Newt", the red-haired Senior, is usually quiet, although capable of being' quite noisy. He has kept his standing in school in addition to working' and participating in sports. "Kenny" is the midget of the Senior Class. He was a transfer from Cisco this year. He is a happy-go-lucky boy with everyone his friend and no one his enemy. Elsie has a friendly disposition, is a hard worker, and accomplishes whatever she sets out to do. Her chief interest is in typewrit- ing, an art in which she excels. Evelyn is a very quiet and demure little girl. She entered here in her Sophomore year as a transfer from Champaign. "Tubby" is our Senior cut-up, and an ideal remedy for a dry class. However, his diligent work in the Senior year has shown that there is a serious side to his character. "Mil" is a peppy and exceedingly talkative member of our class. As an athletic enthusi- ast, she has a tendency to like the stars in the various sports. Marion is an excellent example of good nfanners. She never goes to class unprepared, which accounts for her high scholastic record. She is very active in extra-curricular activities. 52 - ,,,----1, 'ssjj ! 52571 - f i in ...rw ws af .,...-av 'ff Y-1 , x' X, lm. . . 8 3' n.

Committee meetings with much wrangling- wrangling not wanted, had that last year. Committees decided on and six weeks of hard study, research work, and rehearsals all at the same time. Friday morning of November 7, same year as above. Much useless scurry- ing and shuffling about school-thoughts on everything but text-books-various excuses for leaving classes-few refusals for dismissal-dismissed at 10 o'clock Noon Parade-wonder of wonders-Pud Kratz in charge, trying to find a tail for the elephant. Beautiful Hoats, magnificent band-first appearance this year, disgraceful tramps and clowns. Two hours of organizing, placing in line, picture taking-picture retaking, and they're off! People lining streets, waving from street corners, staring at the free sights-we know that it will cost them later, so let them gawk and wonder at the magnificent display. Parade over- now the trip to Bement-fast run over-slow coming back-who wants dinner? Vtfhooping and howling around Bement High School-they envy us for many reasons. Now comes the time to show real worth-the good students clean up things for the evening's entertainment, others ride around in cars. New thing this year.-Gypsy Tea Room-meal and fortune for 35 cents-couldn't accommodate all the patrons. Many side shows-Men's Beauty Parlor-House of Horrors, Chemistry Show, and Boxing and Wrestling Exhibitions. Wontlerftil shows in the assembly hall. "The Trysting Place", very good-- put on by the public speaking classg "VVendell, King of Appetites"-it was too good to be true-VVendell ate dishes, tablecloth, and would have eaten the table but was stoppedg "The Municipal Davenport", featuring Berlyn Leach and jo Faith-a one word play-He said "I-Iuh?"-She said "Uh, Huh". Would you like it? The statuary also deserves honorable mention. XVhite figures against a black background-quite classy. The Minstrel, made up of members of the Boys' Glee Club-best ever put on-ask anyone that participated in it-net loss, one alarm clock QD 3.75 per each. Next on the program-Free Acts-these were enacted in the gymnasium-- drew a large crowd-no wonder, they were free. First was the "Toy Shop" by the Freshman Class. The high-light of this act was a lowdown dance by Bill Burgess and Mary Elizabeth Hawbaker-to the tune of "St. Louis Blues". The Sophomore Class with a "Marathon Dance". This act featured the renowned "Dago,' Curry-wearing a smile and a red-silk scarf. Joe cavorted before awed hundreds-then came back for an encore. The most colorful part of the free acts, "Spanish Bull Fight", presented by the Junior Class. Amidst gorgeous costumes and before the King and Queen-the toreadors threw the bull. This act won the approval of the judges, and the Juniors were awarded the prize- being a party-with Seniors playing hosts. To complete the evening, a grand finale, consisting of all who participated in the greatest Circus in the history of M. C. H. S. got together for a song and cheer. l22l I I - -f 'Y S XX.. ,l Y , 1.

She, a novice at housekeeping, had risen early in order that she might arrange her novel domestic articles in an orderly fashion. Wfhen breakfast was over and her husband, a professor, had gone to work, she went to the telephone to order a heart, the professor's favorite meat. But, after ringing and ringing, she finally gave up. Thinking that there was perhaps something wrong with the phone, she ran to her neighbor's and told of her difficulty. The neighbor lady laughed good-naturedly, explained that it was Flag Day and that the stores were closed. She offered, however, to share her dinner with Mrs. Newlywed. Politely refusing, Madge returned home-but not empty-handed, for she had been given a loaf of home-made bread, some freshly churned butter, and a jar of pear preserves not yet cooled. Madge scanned the pantry shelf with a searching glance, and with a cry of joy she unearthed a large can of navy beans-just common, washday soup or navy beans, but nevertheless. hubby's favorite dish. She washed them carefully and measured out approximately two pounds- just enough for two. That would be a pound apiece. She was so pleased with her find-why even heart could suit Pete no better. And pear preserves, with the fresh bread and butter, would go excellently with this greatest of all deli- cacies. While such thoughts Hashed through her brain, she put her treasure on to cook in her new aluminum kettle and went on with her former job of putting the house in order. There was Pete. She could see him now-his laughing blue eyes, curly blond hair. How happy they would be to sit down to their first dinner-alone together. It was a lovely sunshiny day, and she was humming a dreamy tune when- crack, pop, and a bang came from the rear of the homey little bungalow. What was this? A hold-up? Murder? Now she recalled the story she had read in the paper just the day before. A madman had rushed into a home and wiped out a whole family. Even then the story had gripped her-made her tremble. She wished that she had locked the back door as she had resolved to do. Fran-- tically she pulled a revolver from its hiding place in the front room closet. Cautiously-oh so cautiously-she made her way to the kitchen door. Biff! Pssput! Crack! Why, it sounded like a prison riot or something similar. Paus- ing an instant to steady her nerves, she put a little more pressure on the trigger and plucked up sufficient courage to peek around the corner. The icy fingers of fear clutched her heart as she "took in" the spectacle before her. She felt faint, and closed her eyes a moment-but only a moment, and then- The revolver slipped out of her fingers and clattered to the iioor. Still pale and trembling, Madge seized another of her larger aluminum kettles and emptied the swollen beans into it. Industriously sweeping the drifts of bursted beans from the initiated linoleum, she seriously reflected on a plausible excuse for the excessive amount of beans. ,,1f" l24l 1 951 S 7 X F EE SS S I '111'11 I 1 1..I11I I. 1 swf' ' 1 . .1" "1g, 1,'111 .I'I' 1 1 11 1 ,""'-" 'nu' 'X' f If 1 1 If ,1,11 ?

JUNIOR GLASS Raw Material Precisely as it had been doing for thousands and thousands of years, the sun rose up one bright September morn, in 1928, and impolitely grinned. Out- side the doors of our noble institution of education there stood an assemblage of the freshest of fresh Freshmen, green but ambitious, the future class of '32, There were plenty of us, big 'uns and little 'uns, and middle-sized ones who felt rather mean at being so ordinary. Taking us all in all, we were a likely lot-small wonder the sun grinned. After the first days and weeks of confu- sion, slowly but surely we became settled. VVe were entertained by our up- perclassmen by a delightful party on September 14. NVe began to realize what the Hunking list, the honor roll, and assemblies were. XVe started at once on the Senior Circus, and were rewarded by winning both the stunt and Hoat prizes, for which the Seniors gave us another party. VVe were mighty glad when Thanksgiving and Christmas vacations came, for we had worked hard, and felt a much-needed rest. Finally, june came. NVe had had our first taste, and it was tart but decidedly pleasing. As Soplhomores In the brief months of rest and recreation, we underwent a complete change in attitude, and returned, this time smiling sympathetically, and al- most paternally, at the Freshies. Now, we helped to entertain the Freshmen and enjoyed it, I must say. XYe won nothing in the annual Circus this year, but some of us helped in the operetta, "Up in the Air". By this time our studies had grown stiffer, and almost before we knew it our Sophomore days were oyer. l27l 1 ,,,.. ri ri V ,ff si o , :ij e 532 .S I If ffl ,,j",,,. - A-A.a W af - - , I -'-" q,...i.l5'-El if As Juniors Another vacation passes, and our class began its Junior year. Quite a few have dropped out. Our president this year is Charles Finson. This year we Juniors won the Circus prizes, and once more received a party from the dignif1edC?j Seniors. And now a few more months of the daily grind and we will be free for another vacation. lRlEAlL JUNIORS A gay group of friends passed by. Laughing and talking rapidly, they seemed to be enjoying life immensely. Gnly sixteen or so, but proud of their knowledge acquired through eleven years of school training, they were not so self-centered and puffed up as to think they knew everything that could be learned. During school hours they studied much more than they had when they were Freshmen, but occasionally one could be seen whispering or caught loafing. All sports were essentials of their happy lives. All work was in preparation for the coming year. School affairs were a matter of enjoyable recreation. Music was gradually becoming a bigger part of them. Much of the foolishness of former years had vanished, and they had become more serious, friendly and courteous to their associates. As the school year drew nearer its close and the Seniors began planning for their graduation, they began thinking with some of that half-sadness, half-gladness that comes at graduation, of that time next year, when they as Seniors would finish their high school career, disband from their many classmates, and go into the world in their various ways. They were just typical .lunior boys and girls. l 23 l ...ii-fl - .

VVe were frightened at first, but after the Freshman reception we felt more at home. As days passed on we became quite used to our surroundings, and when the Senior Circus came we showed our ability by winning the stunt. CAhem!j XVe were good in athletics, too, and showed ourselves as promising young lads by losing the first game of the County Tournament to our dear old friends, Atwood. However, we had some boys who showed that they would be stars in future years, as Robert Miller, Harry Combes, Portus VVheeler, and Noel Lilly. Our class took part in many activities and soon won the distinction of being a quiet, orderly class? The climax of the year came when we were given a party by the Seniors for winning the stunt. On September 7, 1930, thirty-six important youths came back to the scene of their first year's mistakes, with the intention of doing or dying for M. C. H. S. lVe didn't win anything in the circus but tried our best. Some of the boys made the football team and a great many got their M's. Then basketball came and we placed two boys on the squad.

C. H. S. Adjusting ourselves to the new environment required several days, but we feel sure that We did not look any greener or act any worse than Fresh- man Classes which have gone before. As usual, the boys of the class were shorn of their beautiful locks by some unlicensed barbers. Gne evening after We had settled, Mr. Simms and Miss Larmore, our class advisors, called this large and brilliant class together, and otlicers were elected. Max Norris was chosen as chief pilot, assisted by Darwin Musick as vice-president. Due to the size of the Freshman Class, two secretaries. Donzel Fortner and jim Lard, were elected. julia Dillavou has charge of our nnances, such as they are. VVC were just becoming accustomed to high school when we came upon some of our greatest obstacles-semester exams. These over, but not com- pletely passed, we began our second semester. We of the Freshman Class have decided among ourselves that We are going to linish our interesting Freshman career and also our entire high school course with high honors.

In itself this is not unusual. joneses have been grad- uating from this high school for years-eleven years, to be exact-which is the unusual aspect. During this period, all eight children of the family have passed through M. C. I-I. S. Helen, the oldest, was a member of the Class of '19, Then, continuing with Hazel in '21, at least one Jones has graduated in each odd year. In '23 there were tvvo, Paul and Lucille, in '25 there was Beulahg in '27, Kenneth, in '29, Nellie, and this year, '31, there is Bob-the last of the Joneses. Although gradually separating, the family has not drifted very far. Helen is Mrs. Wendell Trenchard and lives in Deland. Hazel and Paul are at home, while Lucille is a nurse in the State Hospital at Kankakee. Beulah married Walter Williams and lives here. Kenneth attends the University of Illinois and Nellie is a student at Illinois State Normal at Bloomington. Bob also is still at home. But that is not all of the family. Mr. and Mrs. Jones have alvvays been very interested in school work. Mr. Jones is especially interested in athletics. For every basketball game in many years, in which there was no objection to a local man, he has been our timekeeper. He occupied the same position in foot- ball until a change in rules prevented it. When he does not occupy an official position he is one of the most loyal fans-a familiar figure wherever Monticello is engaged in an athletic contest. l32l I I --.

The group of Honor Students is composed of those people who, during the semester, maintain an average of ninety or above in at least four subjects, thus making a perfect score of thirty points. The points are not given for extra curricular work, nor for more than four subjects. Thirty people who appear in the group above, were awarded full honors for the first semester of this year. Of these, there were thirteen Seniors: Florence Adams, Mar- jorie Corder, Stanley Duvall, Doris Ellis, Phyllis Faith, Marion jones, Lois Lilly, Kathryn Miller, Audrey Milligan, Clarence Plankenhorn, Elsie Rankin, Annabel Royse, and Bill Scott. Seven were juniors: Cecilia Anderson, Geneva Blacker, Elizabeth Foster, Erma Madden, Arthur Sievers, Elaine Zeigler, and Phyllis Hannah. The Sophomores and Freshmen tied in the number of honor students, each class being represented by five people. The Sophomores were Harry Combes, Billy Hampton, Dale Summers, Portus XVheeler, and Mary Louise Dighton, and the Freshmen were Ardeth Hannah, Mary Elizabeth lrlawbaker, NVendell Scott, Donna May Smith, and Dwight Varner. The Seniors lead the school in the percentage of Honor Students, with 33.3 per cent, the Sophomores are next with 12.5 per cent, the Juniors are a close third with ll.6 per cent, and the Freshmen are last with 5.6 per cent. For the first semester of last year there were forty-one students with full honors--18.4 per cent of the total enrollment. This year there are eleven less llonor Students, and the percentage is only 13.1 per cent of the entire school. Ten per cent of the Junior Class and fifteen per cent of the Senior Class are eligible for membership in the National Honor Society. These people will be chosen from the Honor Students, by the vote of their classes. The awards are based on scholarship, deportment, attendance, class activity, and extra curricular activity. l35l I.

A bull light, a contest, and Little Red Riding Hood also served their purpose in stimulating pep which was much in evidence at football games.

The following girls were elected to guide the association through another year of happiness and play: Annabel Royce, presidentg Phyllis Faith, vice-presidentg Phyllis Hannah, secretary and treasurer. For the iirst time, a handball tournament, which was open to all girls, was introduced. Handball is one of the few sports which will carry over after school. Basketball was the most outstanding sport. The all-star team picked by Miss Bidwell, the instructor, was Doris Ellis. Phyllis Faith, lylaxine Sievers. Irene Fulk, Annalel Royce, Florence Ilruhn. llaseball and soccer are the two main outdoor sports. llue to the lack of time, neither of these two sports was advanced to any extent. A dress Apache party was given for all the new members. .Xll were dressed in skirts and sweaters. One almost felt as if she were in New York. In April a Play Day was held at one of the nearby schools. This gave all the girls an opportunity to become better acquainted with the girls of neighboring schools. Several girls received letters and numerals. ln order to win a numeral, one must have OOO points, and in order to earn a letter, 1200 points. l37l -J 'fi ei: ' I ' it THE FUTURE EARMERS OE AMERICA ,AX new club, the Future Farmers of America, has made its appearance in our school, succeeding the former Agriculture Club. Its membership is composed of those boys who are now enrolled in agriculture classes and those who have done some Work in this department in past years. The club was organized early in September and 'lack Catlin was elected president. Throughout the year these young farmers, or "Would-be" farmers, hold at least one meeting each month and the discussion each time is cen- tered around some educative phase of farming. Occasionally some "eats" are added to the program. A basketball team was organized from the membership of the club. This team played the Freshman team, the Reserves and Agriculture teams from other high schools. The Monticello Aggies have met with a fair amount of success in their games, besides deriving a great deal of pleasure from them. The agriculture boys also attended an invitational grain and livestock contest at Farmer City and an invitational corn judging contest at St. joseph. The former was especially interesting since it occurred in conjunction with the Farmer City Fall Festival and the same day as the opening football game of the season, which was played at Farmer City. The boys Will also par- ticipate in sectional and state judging contests which will be held so near the close of the school year that it will be impossible for us to publish results. This organization of the school is an organization of the state and an organization of all the states. VVC are one of the twenty-five schools forming Future Farmer organizations, this school year, which brings the total number of chapters in Illinois to 181. The Future Farmers of America are young in years but nation-wide in representation and today are ranking among the outstanding junior organizations of the present day, so we are proud to have them with us. l3Sl f 1 'Q , ,il - -T -i Qh+,,- .! 2 - 7?

However, all the members were willing to learn and the band has improved rapidly. In April, 1930, the band entered the Okaw Valley Band Contest, in Class B, which was the beginning band division. They took second place. During August the band met two nights a week to practice a few pieces to play for the Arthur Fair and for the football games. The band made its first appearance in uniform when they headed the Circus parade. The uniforms consist of purple and gold capes and white trousers. During the fall they also played for all the home football games. In December, the first annual winter concert was held. The program was varied by several solos and novelties. On Sunday night, March 1, the band played a concert at the Methodist Church. Plans are now being made for entering the band in the District Contest, which will probably be held in Peoria. The required piece for this is Festival Overture. There is one optional piece. l-391 I I- J, ,yeh f iseigirs gf - 'f-f - -I 1 CGIURULSF GILIEJE CLUB MUIXIED CHORUS H01 IZI, x ,J 5 kr g Y 1, , ,.

The Girls' Glee Club broke all records as far as number was concerned. This year saw the graduation of the last members of what we called "our old Glee Clubn. .Xt the Christmas concert, the girls sang two groups, accompan- ied by the orchestra. The Boys' Glee Club sang "Pale in the Amber XYest" and "The Trail of the Qpen Roadl' for their part in the program. On the eve of Christmas vacation, the girls' club, divided into groups, sang carols at the various homes in the city. One group went later in the evening to sing at the County Farm. The Monticello folks were very gener- ous in their thanks and appreciation. The Mixed Chorus was a new organization this year and consisted of stu- dents chosen from the Boys' and Girls' Glee Clubs. The sacred concert on the afternoon of November 10 at the Methodist Church was the lirst appearance of the chorus. On Easter morning, the chorus and children from the grade schools sang an impressive service at sunrise. The result of the two appearances of the chorus showed that this sacred phase of music was quite worth while and is very deserving of a place in our music curriculum. l41l X rex .5-of 7 l K - ' signal-i .ff gif-191 ' J Yi- .J-J " I ORCHESTRA J The orchestra this year has been the least active of the instrumental music organizations since practically all the members of the orchestra are also band members, and have received their instructions there. However, the orchestra did make several public appearances, their first being during the free acts at the Senior Circus in November. When the band gave its hrst annual concert in December it was assisted by the Boys' and Girls' Glee Clubs. The accompani- ment for the Girls' Glee Club selections was furnished by the orchestra and they also played a couple of selections during the intermission of the band concert. The second semester appearances of the orchestra were the ones which they made at the grade school operetta, "The Runaway Song", the Junior play, Hjonesyn, and the Senior play, "Penrod". And so, even if the orchestra has not been particularly active, it has filled a real need in the life of the school by appearing at these entertainments. The audiences have noticed a very appreciable improvement in their playing during the year and have been very appreciative of the efforts of this group of musicians. ' Students who have played in this orchestra are as follows: Doris Ellis, violing Harry Combes, violing Ardeth Hannah, violing Maxine Sievers, violin, Arthur Sievers, violing Stephen Kratz, violin, Bernadine Milligan, violing Wen- dell Scott, clarinetg Max Norris, clarinetg Genevieve Perry, oboeg Jess VVeddle, cornetg Billy Hampton, cornetg Eleanor Jane Firke, altog Morris Richards, trom- boneg Howard Bruhn, sousaphoneg Kathryn Miller, cellog Glenn Peck, drumsg Phyllis Hannah, piano. l42l 1 ' Q ,,v 7 il s, 4 . 'W 2 Q .V t A A .. ORGANIZATIONS That organizations play an important part in the life of human beings is a well established fact. This established fact has been realized only after years of suffering, disillusionments, and discomfort brought about merely because people did not possess the ability to organize themselves in the proper manner. Our experiences in school life easily point out to us that even in youth, in our school days, a certain knowledge of organizations, their purposes, processes of construction, and, eventually, their results, is very essential to us. Organiza- tions are formed in all the different phases of life, hut whether religious, social. economical, or political, they are at the bottom alike. XVe might say then, that the best place to begin the use of organizations, so that we may familiarize ourselves with them, is in high school. If we only stop to think a moment we can see that here is a wonderful place. M. C. H. S. is probably possessed of just as many well systematized organ- izations as any other school in the county. At first, in the bygone years, little thought was given to the idea of organizations and only a few tlourished. As the years passed, new ones were added, until today we are possessed of a group of organizations that are an asset to the school, and to the student. The M. XV. O. L. organization, composed of girls of M. C. H. S., is probably the best known and most popular of our present organizations. That they were a success is easily proven by the fact that they gained recognition from the bus- iness men of our town and from the student bodies of other schools. The initials, as they indicate, mean Monticello, VVin or Lose. Another organization is the G. A. A., or the Girls' Athletic Association, which has been growing larger and larger and gaining in popularity year by year. Besides these we have the lloys' and Girls' Glee Clubs, which have proven their worth by bringing home trophies and other rewards. Agriculture has decided to come forth from obscurity by representing itself hy an organization called the F. F. A., or the Future Farmers of America. This is new in our school but we are wishing them luck, and I am sure that they will come through. Our band organization for the first time in our school history has come into the limelight and in several concerts presented in the past few months showed us what they can do. All of these things prove that to bring the students into closer relationship and understanding of each other, organizations play an important part. l43l mic Iuvim I pw 'A 'Vi' "YW f' A -1 --il ,I , iii- H ifi Sl: 4,2 ,ff ' ' jf JIUNJESY Jonesy, a three act comedy, was presented Friday, April 17, 1931, by the Junior Class, under the direction of Miss Turner, assisted by Miss Hussey. Berlyn Leach played the part of VVilbur Jones, or Jonesy, as he was called. He had just come home from college, bringing a fraternity brother, Billy Morgan CCharles Finsonj with him. Billy gets his friend into all kinds of trouble, in- cluding the selling of the jones' car to pay jonesy's debts. Mildred Ellis CElaine Zeiglerj had broken her engagement with Jonesy, yet she still claimed to be his "hancee". jonesy immediately fell in love with a young actress, Diana Devereaux fMildrecl McCartneyj. Mr. and Mrs. jones fDwight Doss and Dora Adkinsj do everything they can to prevent their son from meeting Diana. Mrs. Jones keeps the plumber fArthur Sieversj Waiting while Jonesy is allowed to sleep overtime, thus failing to keep his appointment with Diana. Mr. jones meets her instead. Anne jones fSue Fosterj, the sensible young' daughter, tries to keep peace in the family, and Katie fEthel Mae Daltonj is a very busy but talkative rnaid. Finally the Joneses learned that Diana was the niece of the most influential townsman, Mr. Jackson QPaul Mcliinneyj, the man from whom jones hoped to get a good job. They had thus let themselves in for many embarrassing complications. Wfith this matter reasonably adjusted, they make a further dis- covery that their son has sold the family car to a traveling salesman, Mr. Silver- berg Qllilly Fowlerj. As Mr. Jones attempted to recover the car, he was arrested by a policeman C. Perryj. Many humorous complications arose that finally unraveled themselves into a happy ending.

V,,N wr.. ,.,,.,..., SIEASCON OIF 11930 XYhen Coach Lutman made his debut at Monticello he found nearly sixty green but willing candidates for his football squad. In a month the coach was able to build a team around Captain "Nick" Wzitts, the only regular from 1929's outht, and the season was opened at Farmer City. A hot battle followed, and when the dust cleared away we were at the long end of a 13 to 7 score. The victory gave us a little confidence and the next week we disposed of Cerro Gordo, 13 to 6, on their new field. Our first conference game resulted in a win over Atwood, 19 to 8. This avenged a defeat at the hands of their championship team a year earlier. The first real test of the team's ability came with the arrival of Clinton on our field. Monticello played good ball the first half, with the score being tied 6 to 6. In the second period we blew up against the larger opponents and Clinton was able to run up a 40 to 6 score. The team partly redeemed itself when Lovington was trampled, 27 to O, with the first and second teams sharing honors. The traditional Armistice Day game found Tuscola coming to Monticello with the odds all against the home team. They soon found out that they had some opposition, but after battling them through a hard fought contest we fell short of victory and lost, 20 to 13. The next game at Sullivan turned out to be a story book affair. Wfith but a minute to play, the hosts were leading 7 to 6, but a great finish gave us a touchdown in that time and we Won, 13 to 7. Then came the Thanksgiving game with Bement. The Bement field was covered with ice and snow, and the near zero weather made playing all the more difficult. In the first half our heavier rivals were able to cross our goal twice. The team then came back with a determination that stopped the Bement scoring, but we were unable to put the ball across and the game ended 13 to O for Bement. The victory gave them the championship of the Okaw Valley. The season ended with Monticello having a total of five wins and three losses. and it might be considered a success considering the size of our team. XYhat the team lacked in size it made up in brains and was able to develop a stro ig passing attack that was the main cog in our offense. 1471 I f, ex lar -TTL-II'-T aj! i" ,I V f -in IE : 5 i I U "ff ,.lQ,.'- Z,-g.::-1 'ji.-g-.W jk ' 2 1 ' .'

Coach Lutman had but two regulars of last year, "Nick" Watts and "Pud" Kratz. The season opened at Hammond, but our debut was not a very impressive one, due to a 15 to 10 defeat. However, one could see a basketball team in th: making. While the team was still striving to forget football we played another game with our rivals, Champaign. A great game was put up and the fans felt that we had something, even though a Champaign rally gave them the game, with but a three point margin. It remained for Arthur to be the team's first victim, and the winning of that game gave us the lead in the Okaw Conference. The game itself was slow but it showed that victory could be accomplished, Our next foe was Lovington. Qui' hghting team won the rough contest, and we remained the conference leader. After a short layoff through Christmas the boys came back strong in the Tolono holiday tournament, showing good form in downing Tuscola and Ogden, only to lose the title to Tolono in the final game. It was at this affair that Coach Lutman found a working combination in N. Watts, Miller, Kratz, Plankenhorn, and Combes, Combes, VVatts, and Kratz making the All-Star team. Monticello was now ready to enter into the midst of conference play. Their first game of the new year resulted in annexing a victory over the Atwood five, former champions. It was mainly a last quarter rally, led by Combes and Kratz, that put the game over. When Bement came to Monticello, they were sent back with a loss and with only one field goal to their credit. Although the game was close the first half, the home boys put on a rally that gave us a good margin of victory. Still feeling the sting of a close football defeat, the team were hosts to Tus- cola and gave them their first conference defeat. Monticello got an early lead that was protected throughout the game by Nick Watts and Combes, who shoul- dered the offensive burden. The next week the team made the long journey over to Oakland, whose team was considered a strong opponent. After a comparatively easy battle, the Cagers bagged a victory and at the same time placed themselves as serious contenders for the conference title. Monticello entered the Piatt County tournament as favorites to win their first title, and they fulfilled predictions by taking home the trophy. We drew the home team, Cerro Gordo. An impressive victory put us in the semi-finals and after running over Deland, the Sages won the final over Hammond. This was the first year that any Monticello quintet had ever been able to cop the county title in basketball. Following the County meet, the Okaw Valley tournament was staged at Monticello. In this affair we were again the favorites, which is always a hard position for any team. Our first game was a thriller and it was not until the last minute that we were sure of a win over the Villa Grove team. The next night found the fans confidently expecting an easy win over Bement, who were close to the bottom in the league, but a surprise was awaiting all. After holding Bement the first quarter, the seconds weakened, and the first team was not able to regain our rivals' lead and we were handed a 20 to 18 loss. Bement then went on to win the tournament. T521 I I- xo gg JJ just to prove that they were out of the slump that kept them down in the Okaw tourney, the Lutman preps again defeated Atwood by a 45 to 24 score, with everybody sharing in the honors. Tuscola was next to fall before the determined rush of the title bound Sages. The Tuscola fans witnessed a good game, but one in which the visitors dominated. A lot of fans from Monticello were offering their support, and the brilliant playing of the boys showed championship material. At last came the chance to avenge llement for their literally taking the Okaw tourney honors out of our hands. A capacity crowd saw the baskethallers take llement well in hand and give them a severe 43 to 14 trouncing. This victory also clinched the Okaw Valley Conference championship for us. Our last scheduled game of the season was a home game with Lovington. The team romped through this contest in good style and rode on to the Okaw Valley Conference championship with a record of ten wins and no losses! The Monticello District tournament was held the first week in March. Al- though we were rated as favorites we had some strong opponents. Vtfe opened the tournament by locating a good Argenta team. Our next game with the Cerro Gordo live was fairly easily disposed of. In the semi-finals we met Sadorus, who has a large, fast team. The hnal game was played with Champaign. Both teams played good ball, but the Sages triumphed over Champaign and took the district title, the first that had ever been won by a Monticello five. This gave us the right to compete in the Danville Sectional. Monticello went to the sectional with colors flying and with a large and enthusiastic following. lVe had drawn the large Urbana team for our first game, and due partly to their advantage in size, and partly to the fact that our speed was hindered by the slick Hoor, we lost the game, but not without a battle. The sectional tournament closed the season of about the most successful team that Monticello has ever known. They were able to add four trophies to our collection, three first places and the second place cup of Tolono. The team had a record of twenty wins and Five losses, and three of these losses were to 17 teams that we later defeated.

He could ale ways deliver in the pinches. Though very small, "Clarney" was a great defensive player and could always be depended upon to take the fastest men of the opposition. He had a knack of wriggling out of tight places that was a sight to see. 'fN1cK" VVATTS One of the best offensive and defensive centers ever to leave Monticello High School. "Nick" was the pivot man of the whole team, and could always be counted on in bringing the ball down the court or in stopping a rival offense. "Nick" was right- fully on the all-star teams of four tournaments, which was a great climax to his athletic career at Monticello. Bois MILLER A Sophomore playing at forward, had a wonder- ful eye for the basket and delivered all of the time. Rob is an idol of the fans due to his uncanny shots and to his cool-headed action. He was never a player to be rattled, although his offense has rattled quite a few opposing teams. HARRY COMBES Sophomore playing at forward, who showed plenty of speed and class at all times. Harry was the leading scorer of the season, and could hold his own in defense. Much is expected of this lad in the future. "PUD,' KRATZ Played at running guard and showed excellent form in holding his men to low scores, while he himself was quite a point gatherer. It was Pud's third and last year of consistent varsity work. He could always be counted on and was usually in- strumental in leading the team through some great rallies. CHARLES FINSON "Chick,' was a much reputed utility man who could be used at either center or forward. He had a good eye for the basket. He ,should come into his own next year and be a strong menace to his opponents. "Chick" often broke under the basket for short shots. l54l V Nr W Q rs 2, ell C.Waii5 'P Cvmbcs I K vafz . - ,Nil '-Y ik.. Qpyamugf . . fpyrtc 1 i if is 'ti i ' Finson ,p A, . F, 7 .

He could play either center or forward. "Toughy" often connected with the hoop when sent in at a critical time and he could work the hall down fast. He was accused of excessive fouling, but it was due to nothing but hard playing, and that is what should make him go far next season. LINDEN LINDSLEY Was a small but speedy forward. "Lin" was playing his last year of basketball, having moved up from the reserves of last year. If Lindsley ever got "hot" in a ball game, one would see what an accurate shot he was. STANLEY DL'VALL Stanley never played basketball until his Senior year, but he proved himself a dangerous man. He could play either center or guard. He was an extra good board man and very often got the ball off the backboard. "Stanl' was not eligible till the second semester, but he showed more improvement than any member of the squad. DWIGHT Doss Dwight made an extra good man his first year. He has plenty of speed and knows how to use it. He should make a reliable guard next year. "Judge" is a good shot and can hold his own in defense. KENNETH ALLEN A good sturdy guard, who made it tough on his opponents. "Kenny', should go places next year. Allen was playing his second season of basketball and his experience showed up in his work, especially in bringing the ball down. GLENN BURNS A bov that could alwavs be relied upon to cover a dangerous opponent. Burns was one of the fast- est men on the squad and a good defensive player. He came from the captaincy of the three year high school at Dietrich and fitted in very well on the Sages' team. l55l I ' el-L -ff Z ff . iii?-J 1 i -ga s - Q V 1- . kj! f 5 'X K X 5 RQSGYVB S 0-moms . Fveshmext- lMION'l1'lIfCElLlL'O EIRESHNIAN AND SOPHOMURE TEAMS Aside from the varsity team Coach Lutman organized a team for those in the first two classes of high school. They had a fairly successful season, having a loss to the Champaign Ponies and Winning from the Bement Frosh. The Freshmen vvere entered in the County tournament, without the support of the Sophomores. Their first game was a hard one, but they won from Ham- mond and entered the semi-iinals to meet the strong Cerro Gordo team. The Frosh could not stand the onslaught of the heavier home team and lost, 31 to 24. This ended the season for the boys, but some outstanding material was shown that could be useful in the near future. The squad of Freshmen-Sophomores consisted of Richards, llurgess, Hubbard, Milligan, Norris, Barbour, Palmer, Merriman, Hampton, Mullvain,'Bruhn, VVheeler, Higgins, and Summers. lMIONTlIfCElLlLfO RESERVES The Monticello reserves did not have so much success as its superior, the varsity. However, the team got what basketball was primarily for-amusement and exercise. The first foe was the Lovington seconds and though our defense was good, the offense was not functioning and the Lovingtons won. The Tuscola seconds were our next conquerors. The team came back strong enough to nose out Qakland reserves, 3 to Z. We again met Tuscola, but were beaten. A last half rally saved the game from being a walk-away. Qui' last game with the Bement reserves was played by the second team of the first squad and not by the re- serves. The game was won by a large score. l56l I we W , VJ S i Wir A' 7-gl it ir i ig Qjiililii 2 f TRACK Due to the basketball team going to the sectional tournament, Monticello got a late start in track, but in spite of the cold a squad of thirty-one has been working out daily. Indications are that we will have an all-around track team as there are at least four men trying out in each of the field and track events. Outstanding in the sprints are Leach, llurns, Lilly, Crews, and Gregory, while Doss, Wlatts and Duvall are lfeing depended on in the Field. Some good material should develop from those working in various other events, among whom are Cline, Perry, Branch, Scott, Glasgow. Hampton, NVheeler, Higgins, Rhodes, Anderson, Dean Watts, Kratz, Allen, jones, VVhite, 1'lankenhorn, Combes, and Parsons. After about two weeks of practice, Monticello entertained live rival schools in a track and field meet. At the outset our hopes were fairly dim but as the events progressed we turned out as the winner of the meet, with sixty-nine points. Monticello featured in the dashes, taking First place in all three runs, and winning all four places in the 220 yard dash. Our other first was in the pole vault. The medley and SSO relays were both won by our team. On April 18th the Sages scored an 83 to 59 victory over St. joe, who became Champaign County Champions. Leach and Nick VVatts gathered 33M points. One cloudy Monday the team traveled to Hammond, only to be rained out after the meet was half over. However, it was finished on our field and resulted in a victory for us. The rainy Saturday of April 26, 1931, found the Sages at Ottawa, where forty-six schools were competing. To show them that we had a team we pro- ceeded to the highest honors of any class B entrant. Our relay team won first in the medley and mile relays and a second in the 880, while Leach won fourth in the broad jump to make up our points. The relay teams consisted of Lilly, Burns. Crews, Leach, Gregory, and Higgins. On May Z, ten teams came to Monticello to dispute our track and iield supremacy of the Okaw, but none were successful. Wfe won the meet with 4624 points. followed by our nearest competitor, Arthur, with 30 points. Our victory was due chiefly to a well-balanced team who took points in every event and won first in the relay. The outstanding individual was Leach, who won three dashes and placed third in the broad jump. It was good weather, although quite windy. The broad jump record was broken by Houck of Arthur and the fifty yard dash and high hurdle records were tied by Leach and Montgomery of Oakland. The following boys received letters: Palmer-Freshman relay team, Higgins -Freshman relay team and half mile, Norris-Freshman relay team, Richards -Freshman relay team, Leach-Dashes and jumps, Lilly-Dashes, Burns- Dashes, Crews-Dashes, Gregory-Mile, Nick Watts-Pole vault and weights, Duvall-XVeights , Doss-High jump, Kratz-High jump and high hurdles, .lones -High hurdles. 'lI'lROlPlHIlllES The year 1931 has been one of the best that Monticello has ever had in ath- letics. One of the best proofs of this is the assortment of medals, cups, and trophies we have received this year. In fact it is so large a collection that Mr. Sutton has decided that we need a new trophy case. In track alone we have taken twenty-tive individual medals and the season not quite over! In basketball we won four cups and statues. including the standard sized basketball in silver that we took by winning the Okaw Conference Championship. 1571 I . , M7 fi 345242-Q -I - - 1 'sfjf ATHAILIITIICCS G11 the furst uv siptimbur the coche ishued the prolclamassion thet al boys hoo wantid ta go out fer futball shud com out Sz git there soots.
