Because of eertain handieaps hrou,Q'ht on hy the war the Annual Staff ot' this year was unahle to produce a hook as elahorate as those ot' previous years. Even though the i'-H" Chief is not as large, its sentirnents remain the same, and it will, as other hooks ot its kind, in future years, serve as an exeel- lent reinintler ot this sehool year. Bei-ause it is a hook of the stuiients. for the students, and hy the stu- dents, the staff feels that it is only fitting to dedieate the Chief of JSI-L-L to all hoys and girls of M.H.S. and also the faeulty, for without their eooperation. patient-e, and guidanee it never eoulml have heen inacle possihle. .U Sl"Z'4'Il ,Z-.f,4,.4,5Q 4-..!,A..,,., JEAN PEACOCK ,liluy 9 ffL'IIl'1'lI1 Cnzzrst' Pep Club l,.Z,3,42 Library Club 253,45 CAA.

We all remember starting our education, some of us going to Center School and others going to the various ward schools. Facing our hardships during those years and yet gettin-g into mischief all tend to make our earlier years in school interesting. Then we entered Junior High, thinking of our- selves as ladies and gentlemen. Too old to stand in the corner but too young to be perfect was the attitude of the students. VVe had our activities such as homeroom basketball, girls' chorus, and that typical fortune teller, Bert Ricketts. Our class was the first to start Junior High Class Night which was, by all means, a great success. Then came that great night, graduation. Marquita Berner received the American Legion award which was a great honor a11d a good start for smooth sailing. This completed our grade school training, and now we were ready for BI.H.S. Registration day for the Freshman was quite exciting, but yet we had a group that was willing to help us, and the same help was given us during our remaining days here. Going to various classes and several times being directed to the wrong classes by the chiefs filled our first day of fatigue in high school. The first great thrill we received was going to the animal dance in honor of the Freslnnen. Joining clubs, taking part in athletics, and learning how to study were ideals of most Freshmen and were all well in hand by the end ot' the year. Tl1e11 came our Sophomore year which was a huge success since we were well accustomed to the nature of high school. Miss Erhardt, Mr. Huck, and Miss Higgins all helped to make that year more interesting. That was the year that all took part in initiating the Freslimen. Nlext, becoming a part of the upper class made ns feel quite sophisti- cated. Tlhe Junior-Senior Prom was one of our greatest successes. The deco- rations were well taken care of in the hands of "Tony7Q Sterritt. The theme, which we will never forget, was 'fllambi". The Junior Play, also furthering our interests, seemed to be enjoyed by all. . 1 Then came a sarl note. Several boys from our own Junior iklass were enlisting and some were drafted. The war had come too, and with it our awakening to the great responsibilities which faced us in the future. - In our Freshmen Class there were over one hundred students, and in our Senior Class there are approximately sixty. During our last year we all missed "Zeke" Morral, "Moose" Sehaible, 'fTony" Sterritt, and Dick Black, while Jim lNl'cElvain and Jim Collins transferred to other schools. Even though it seems to us that our liabilities greatly outnumber our assets, it 's up to us to lielp win this war with our own plans in the background and then begin to plan for a glorious future.

We really felt as though we had accomplished the thing that every Junior Class tries to in sponsoring the prom. 'Phat is to give the Seniors a prom that they 'll never forget and can look on with more than just pleasant memories. Our high school years are coming to an end, Only one more and we, too, are graduated. They've all been too short, but very wonderful years. lu our last and Senior year we only hope that We may carry 011 as successfully as the many Senior classes before us. VVe'll try.

We thought the upper class- nlen had no artistic talent and believed more in quantity than quality. From then on we were full fledged ineinhers of the Morris High School. The next event of the year sponsored by and for us was the treshnlan party. lt was held iu the home economics room. Later in the evening' due to the demand for more space the eonununity room was drafted into inuuediate service. More than titty ot us were there and we split upg half dancing and playing table games, the other halt playing relay games. Needless to say this was a highlight which will long he relnenihered. Because of the necessity for freshmen to lear11 and practice the cheers of good old M.H.S., we gathered in the gynnrasium and led hy our cheerleader, Phyllis Fread, made the rafters ring.

The same theme was again successfully used at the freshman dance. The attendance and complimentary comments clearly indicated the freshmen are indiibitably entertainers deluxe. Several class meetings have been hcld characterized by the unusually good order which was manitained. Another eventful occasion upon which the members of our class gath- ered together Was for a party to attend the cinema, A picnic is planned for tl1is spring which is to be held in Gebhard lVoods State Park.

Jean Peacock The purpose of Student Council is to represent all the classes and Work out the Problems confronting them. The officers this year were as follows: John May, president, Maurice Einger, vice-president, and Jean Pea- cock, secretary-treasurer. Miss Gossmeyer Was the sponsor. At the first of the year We initiated the Freshman papooses to meet the standards of our braves Cremember Miss Connors and Miss Legate singing "Pistol Packing Mama "ll During the year we accomplished many things, such as appointing cloak room guards, hall monitors, and giving a general and split assembly. Courtesy Week was held in February, and after passing the specified requirements, J unc Allan was chosen queen and Dick Johnson, king. Much Indian Wampum was made by selling war stamps and bonds. A toy jeep was presented to the seniors for buying the most in stamps. A recreation center for ,teen-agers called the NVigNVam was organized. Some of our braves got together and formed an orchestra to do good Indian dances. Due to the gasoline shortage, the braves and squaws of Morris High School go there to read, play games, dance, and eat. Indian boys and girls went out to collect books for the many Redskins who are fighting to protect the future of their tribes. In April a big tribal Pow VVOW was held in Chicago. This was the state Convention of Student Councils. Representatives from all the tribes in Illi- nois came to the meeting to work out their individual problems. The Student Council sponsored the Homecoming Dance Welcoming alumni. At the end of the year a dance was given in honor of the departing Seniors.

Program committees were formed for the year so that each of the nearly thirty members might take part in at least one meeting. The meetings were scheduled for the first Monday of each month. Most of the programs were to be made up of demonstrations concerning any one of our four types of science and of speeches by outstanding men of our city. The club sponsored part ot' a general assembly with Lyle Craig speak- ing on aeronautics, and John May and Carter Hodney giving demonstrations with explosives. The club 's advisors, Mr. Love, Miss Clark, and Mr. Hilton, helped in planning and putting into effect our programs. Twenty-Eight Em-Hi The Em-Hi has been an exceptionally good paper this school year. This 1s due largely to the leadership of Big Qhief George Carpenter Ellld Squaw Eleanor Connors. I Q The staff works under the direction of their editor, Virginia Hagen, and is composed of eight Indian maidens Ellld four young braves. They are: Selma Brady. Juanita Blake. Verneda Brown, Elizabeth Hagen, Jean Melby, Gerry Ness, Betty Parker, Helen Sharp, Dick Bull. Norman Jorstad, Jack Mcliee, a11d John Such. Several new features were added to the paper this year to make it more appealing to the students of M.H.S. One of these features was "C'orny The Kernelfii Corny is a little worm who wiggles into private love affairs and gives the students first-hand information about them. He certainly has had a good crop this year even if there is a war going on: and we know he will reap a good harvest, too. Another new feature was "The Students Talk." This column contained personal interviews oi' students which revealed their likes, dislikes, favorites. and ambitions. Athletic news was featured giving magor details and scores on the games. The paper is enjoyed by not only the tribe of M.H.S., but also by their chiefs at home, for it contained news on the P.-TLA. school programs, cartoons, interesting editorials, homerooms. dances, clubs, and other school activities. Library Club The Library Club is a 'hard-working group of girls. XVith the aid of Miss Francis they take care of the library. during-school hours. At the first meeting officers were elected and new members voted into the club. Each year enough new members must be added to the club to keep its membership at thirty. Each girl serves in the library for one period a week. During that hour she has complete charge of the library. She checks out any books that students may wish to take out of the library and maintains discipline. Each girl has a special section of the book-shelves which she is expected to keep in order. In addition to these duties Library Club members help file, catalog, and otherwise prepare the new books for tl1e shelves. This has been quite a job this year because almost two hundred books have been added to the library. This year the Library Club collected material for and put together a USO scrapbook to be sent to some hospital for wounded service men. lt con- tained cartoons, jokes, and short articles and stories. The officers of the club this year were: Virginia Hagen, president, Maxine Kussler, vice-president,'Selma Brady. treasurerg and Gerry Ness, secretary. , Marian Admns Norma Agate Marqulta Berner Selma Brady Veronica Chubb Shirley Grove Elizabeth Hazen Yirzinia Hagen Gerry Ness Arlene Ulson MEMBERS Fharlene Panish Marilyn Peacock Betty Thompson Louise Trenter Connie Usevick Marge Agate lialene Ballard Eleanor Bols Dorthie Bright Virginia Davidson Jean Guard Marilyn Hagen Maxine Kussler Vivian Newell Lois Osinundson Jean Peacock Rella Sklut Betty Trenter Barbara Flirenlioldr Tterllly 'ini Debordrex The main purpose of this club is to further public speaking. This is accomplished through Plll'll1C and elub appearances. At the beginning of the year, tryouts were held and eight new 1nen1- bers were taken into the club. . This elub is divided i11to two teams, the '4Hams" and the "-letfsf' At each meeting points are awarded for debates. both serious and humorous, orations, prepared speeches, or ouizzes. The team that has the most points at the end of the semester, is given a star which is placed on the pennant that hangs in the Study Hall. The Hams have wo11 both stars this year. The Debordrex Society presented a program for the assembly consist- ing of short skits, readings, and poetry. Every year the club has at least one party. This year a Christmas party was held at the December meeting. At this time, complete recordings ot the "Christmas Carol," were played: these were furnished by Mr. Hilton. After this, members of the club characterized members of the cast of tl1e i't.'hristmas Carol." The officers tor the first semester were Jack McKee, Pat Baker. Betty Thompson, and Cylinda Cryder who served as President. Vice-President. Secretary-Treasurer. and Sergeant-at-Arms. LaVerne Rosenmiller, June Allan, Belva Goode, and Marilyn Peterson filled these otiices the second semester.

These and many other similar exclama- tions might have been heard as busy members of the Dramatic Flub put last minute touches on their annual all-sehool play, "Best Foot Forward." The club was responsible for numerous entertaining plays. skits, and readings given tor P.-T.A.. NVomen's clubs, church functions. and other or- ganizations. Of course the club frequently took part in general assemblies. A novel Christmas play entitled "Prom Dress" was presented to the school and several organizations. Mrs. Petersen, the dramaties direetor, is to be commended on her pa- tient and expert guidance. Membership to the club this year was gained only by contributing in some way to the various productions during this or former years.

Has anybody S9911 my candle for the opening .n" ceremony i Ahhh-from tl1e sound of things the monthly meeting of the Alpha Alpha Gamma QHOmemaking Club to youj is about to begin. It is the local l1I'3l1C'l1 of a club which extends throughout the entire country and to which thousands of girls belong. The Morris chapter of this national Homemaking Club meets once each month. The large membership makes these meetings fun for everyone. Each month new committees plan a special program, games, and refreshments. Every year two girls are elected to go to East Bay Camp. Girls from every Home Economics Club in the state attend the camp for several days in August. The next year the girls report on their trip and the things they learned while there. This year's delegates are Eunice Ness and lla Ryder. One ot' tl1e outstanding events of the Club's year was the supper party at which the mothers of the members were guests. Another, as we are sure any of the girls will tell 'you, was the party for the F.F.A. boys which was held in December. Just before Christmas a caroling party was held after the regular meeting. These are annual events 011 the Club 's calendar and are looked forward to by all. Each year the Homeniaking girls prepare and serve the banquet for the F.F.A. boys and their parents. Although this is not a Club activity many of the A.A.G. girls participate.

To get into the swing of things we had a tennis tournament in which Laverne Rosenmiller carried off the honors. Next on the schedule was the Dwight play day which seven Morris girls attended. One of the highlights of the year was our fall formal dance, which was introduced this year and was so largely attended that it is likely to be an annual event. i The class basketball tournament was decisively won by the junior girls, who later were presented with a trophy which is to be handed down from year to year to the winning team. By tumbling and dancing, the G. A. A., combined with the gym classes, helped make the bond show a success. The next calendar event was the Paul Bunyan 'l+'ormal at which the girls were stunning in over-size shirts and overalls. XVe also had a telegraphic basketball tournament which included the whole state. Mary Jane May made one of the high scores in the state. NN'e had a telegraphic archery tournament, and, as usual, we were among the best. To bring our year to a climax we had a play day of our own, at which we played hostess to one hundred girls of the G. A. A. of surrounding towns. g The G. A. A. has been more active this year than in any since its origin in Morris High School in 1940. The large enrollment has been due largely to the keen class competition which has taken place in the various sports, and the spirit shown by the freshmen in our organization makes us sure the G. A. A. will continue to be everything that we hoped it would be.

Jack Blake During the past year the members of the Morris Chapter of F.F.A. have achieved many great and worthwhile goals. They have achieved these through the leadership of their instructor, A. V. Meadors, and through their own de- termination and hard work. One of the most important phases of F.F.A. work is the work in the classroom. This work trains and enlarges the minds of the students in the business of farming. In connection with this class work, iield trips are taken to places where the practices of modern farming are carried on. The other phase is our extensive project program. This project program gives the boys valuable experience in "this business of farming." Here they apply all the knowledge learned in the classroom. Glory and honor came to our chapter twice this past year. At the annual state convention last spring, Willis Varland was elected vice-president of Section Six. This gives him the opportunity to preside over all the meet- ings held in Section Six during the year. Back from the Lamb Show came Harold Nelson with a trophy for having a grand champion lamb at the Junior Market Lamb Show. This organization participates in many activities during the year. Once a year they present an assembly program in combination with the Home Eco- nomics department. Also, each year the F.F.A. and Alpha Alpha Gamma clubs hold a joint meeting. Members from both organizations are called upon to be on the program, and a committee is appointed to take charge of the games. Every fall the F.F.A. sponsors a hayride. The big event of the year is the annual Parent and Son banquet. The members do all of the decorating and present the program the night of the banquet. Every year Mr. Meadors and several of the F.F.A. members attend the state convention. At this time the state farmer awards are conferred on all those boys earning them. This past year three members from our chapter received this award. They were Roy Darin, Sherman Hexdall, and Gerald Peacock. Points given to the members for various farm activities are recorded on an activity chart kept in the Ag. room. The members earning the required number of points are given a large school letter UM". Through this organization the Future Farmers of America receive many good pointers which will make them better farmers in the world of tomorrow.

T olm May In order to become a member of the "M" Club, an athlete must play e11ougl1 football or basketball to earn a major letter award in that sport. The membership of the "M" Club was depleted at the start of this school year, there being only six members. Many of the organization who would have ordinarily been back donned navy, army, or marine uniforms in- stead of football togs, basketball suits, or the thin clads. The HM" Club gained in number after the football season, and three were added at the close of basketball. The Club sponsors the annual Homecoming Day, which this year con- sisted of a football game with Pontiac and the dance, during which a Home- coming King and Queen were crowned. Due to the small number of members the Student Council was engaged to help with the decorations for the dance.

Last year marked the beginning of the Pan-American club, and i11 that time it has become very popular. The club is under the leadership of Miss Connors, assisted by Jack McKee, Betty Thompson, and Virginia Hagen. They have held several meetings this year to enjoy singing fin Spanish, some of the songs are quite catchyl, playing "zas" QBingo to youl, and eating delicious Spanish food ranging from pu11ch to hot tamales. Ask the menrbers about their good chili. During the course of the year there were shown several movies of South America and Mexico. Some were in Spanish while others in English. To Glld the year's activities the club performed in Assembly. The songs and H6lltI'6lll8S,H Una Tragedia De Amor, are certain to be remembered, espe- cially Mildred Andersen and-Joyce Rudfilph's walking back and forth across the stage. No one knew they were supposed to be curtains until they trans- lated the play into English. The purpose of this club has been to help further the students' interest in the Pan-American countries and help better their Spanish. Xllhile the stu- dents were learning something, they were also having an enjoyable time.

To our coaching statf ot this year, Mr. Love and Mr. Garrison, goes the thanks of tl1e entire student body for the work they have put in on our ath- letic teams.. This year was a year ot building in our entire sports department. Be- cause of the training the boys received from the coaches this year. Morris should go far toward becoming an athletic power in the coming years. Most Valuable Brave Maurice "Dude" Enger has had the honor of being the only player in this school ever to be elected t'most valuable" in both football and basketball. llis outstanding blocking and pass receiving ability in footlfall and his stellar ball handling in basketball was recognized by everyone. By virtue of his team play and his season 's score of 290 points, he was ranked by many as one ot the outstanding players in this section of the state. Managers Here 's to the manager, that hard-working guy whom everybody takes more or less for granted. He's the fellow who runs the errands, does the dirty work, checks equipment, and bolsters the team 's morale. He's a little seen. hard-working, essential guy, so let 's all give him a great big cheer. This year we lacked a football manager. Heading the basketball man- agement Was Ed Carr. with Ronnie Younker as the Junior Varsity manager, while Bob Wren held down this important position for the track squad. These fellows have worked hard, and to them goes a lot of credit for the success of our athletic events. T1llI'fj'-.5lI..l' Redskins The Redskins opened their football warfare at the Mendota battle- ground. luexperience proved too much for the Norris squad as they fell to the host school Ill-0. A week later traveling to Batavia, the luckless warriors once again ran into a stone wall, taking it on the elnn to the tune of 41-ll. Opening at. home the following Friday, the Redskins ran into the usual results when Morris plays Dwight, getting beat. 33-0. The Redskins traveled to Normal next, where they met a passing attack that left them reeling. T'he final count was 55-0. Homecoming was held on October 15, with Morris meeting Pontiac on the home Held. The Redskins fell beforc a powerful running attack. 52-0. Two weeks later the Redskins ran into the "Saints" from Trinity. Trinity was tops in the Corn Belt Conference. and Morris could do little but try and hold the score down. Final result 33-U. The Redskins' big game was against lfniversity High when the Red- skins scored the Iirst and only touchdogvn, but still losing -ll-6. ln the final game of the year Morris was defeated on a muddy tield at Lockport, 42-0. ' Autumn Moon ' Morris failed to Win a football game last year. The Redskins were out- scored over 50-1. These facts can be seen by looking int-o the record book, but there are several things, important things the record book won 'tt show. At the end of last year 's season the outlook for the '43 season was very bright, with eleven returning lettermen. But the Redskins reckoned without the war. By the start of this years season only four lettermen remained, with llncle Sam and other schools taking most of our key men. Consequently, Coach Love fielded a team that was small and very inexperienced. This much should be said for the XVarriors: Morris played football where many teams dropped it, and no apologies should he offered for the conduct of the players, who despite taking a beating, both physically and on the field, continued to give all they had That should stand as a moral victory for them and the school. Th irly-5't"z't':1 Warriors Richard Bull-95-''Ole"--Started as center at the first of the year but was switched to tackle. No ground was gained through this spot. He is a senior and will not be back next year. John May-86--4'Johnny"-A Senior this year, and his position at guard is going to be missed next year. Maurice 'Enger-80-'iDude"-The most valuable man on the team with his blocking and pass receiving ability. Dude is another senior. Gerald Dibble--S4-"Gerry"-A line smashing quarterback who will be with the team next year. Much is expected of him. Wayne Schaible-89-K'Shortyw-A fighting heart more than made up for his lack in size. hxvlllll the experience gained this year Shorty promises to be a standout for the next two seasons. Harvey Larson-88-"La1'1ney"--This was Harvey 's first year of foot- ball. He won l1is position from the start and proved to be a very rugged man to have around. Harvey will not be hack next year. Donald Neushwander-96-Don-A freshman who despite his pint- sized physioue and lack of experience proved to be a neat tackler and smart quarterback. Grant Bush-85-"XVl1ift"'-Alternated at end and fullback and on more than one occasion showed himself to be a tough man 'to bring down. Grant is another senior. I Edwin McNabb-91-Ed--A haPfback, could always be counted on for a gain and several times showed himself to be a pass catcher of no mean ability. Ronald Younker-92-Ronnie-A freshman this year earned himself a starting position. Being a short and stocky man did not hinder his playing ability at center. Richard Higgins-83-"Rich"-A worthy end and excellent pass re- ceiver. He will be back next year. Gordon Black-"Tony"-Viho was injured early in the season would have proved a capable player. He was the only man to be presented with an honorary letter. Wendell Eich--90-''Bud"'-XVas the passer of the team and was a potential scoring threat all the time. Bud is a senior-will be greatly missed next year. Ed Carr-97-t'Eddie"-190 pound tackle. will he back with the squad next year. Much is expected of him. ' Eddie Leach-S7-"Link"-A fast end. Vllith his experience this year he should make a good hacklield man or end next year. Louis Cheshareck-Louis-A capable sub, will be back with the Red- skins next year at tackle and at guard. His size does not hinder him. Harold McCormick-Harry, another sub at guard or tackle, will make a starting position next year. Jerry Fordflerry, a junior, played halfhack. He was injured in the Normal game and was unable to finish the season. T11 iffy-Liiglz t Braves Dude Engel'-22--Captain and most valuable player. Dude played his outstanding basketball this year. He is a Senior and will be greatly missed 11ext year Dick Bull- 29-Ole's height gave us a great advantage. His graduation leaves a big hole in the lineup. Rich Higgins-20-Rieh's lack of height didn't handieap him. He played good hasketball this year. He is a Junior and will be bat-k with the team next year. Bob I-Iiggins-21--The other half of the Higgins eombination proved time and again that this pair will hear Watching next winter. Bob played guard. . Dick Johnson-28-Shadow-A transfer student this year, was the shot-in-the-arm our team needed. He was a good rehounder and sure death on defense. Shadow is another senior. John Such-24-Johnny alternated at forward and guard and eould be counted on when the going got tough. Johnny is a Senior this year.

They also split even with the Mazon varsity, defeating them here, While losing to them in an overtime at Mazon. Morris entered the Junior Varsity tourney at Marseilles, but lost their first game to Streator. The experience gained by the squad members this year should make Morris one ot the strong teams in the coming years. Th iffy-.Yirir Raiding Quint Any doubt in the minds ot the fans about the ki11d of a basketball team Morris would put on the court this year was quickly dispelled. Although the outlook wasn't too bright, witl1 only 0116 regular from last year returning, the Redskins combined superior team play a11d accurate shooting to start out the season with a winning streak that was to last until after Christmas. The vic- tory string was snapped at seven games by U. High, 52-44. And, while the Tribe dropped several other close ones in the Corn Belt Conference race, they were always a threat. Besides finishing 5th in the Conference for tl1e season, Morris scalped their traditional rivals, Marseilles and Coal City, twice, all outstanding accom- plishment in itself. The Redskins ended their season at Streator in tl1e Re- gional Tournament by first defeating Serena, the district champ, and then bowing before Ottawa in the semi-finals, 41-45. The statistics for the season show that Morris topped their opponents by the average score of 46.1-39.3 while winning 13 and dropping 7 for a fairly successful season. at sg 5 ,rag Runners Track has been introduced in Morris for the first time in several years. It is the aim of tl1e coaches not only to compete ni track, but to develop the school's athletes for next year's 'football and basketball teams. When Coach Love announced track, soon after the basketball season was over. a squad of about 23 fellows turned out. Although track was new to every one. some of the members of the squad showed promise of developing i11to future track stars. The Redskins tested their strength and speed in the 100 yard dash, the 220 and el-LU yard dashes, the half mile and mile distances, broad and high jumping, shot put a11d discus throwing, pole vaulting, and the relay races. As could be expected, the XVarriors bumped against stil-Y competition. and mexperience more than once proved a limiting factor. Next year Morris should really show some power on the track field. Forty Squaws Any person who has ever attended a basketball or football game at one time or another has envied the job of the eheer leaders. This year these posi- tions were left open as a result of the graduation of our cheerleaders for the past three years. V ' After tryouts and a general election 'Belva Goode, Louise Trenter, June Allan, and Phyllis Fread were selected. ln leading the Redskins' fans in organized cheering through both the football and basketball seasons, these girls proved they were the equal of any cheerleader in this section. At all times the girls were leaders in fair play and sportsmanship, and the sehool can well be proud of them. L ' Th v P I d' O.p 6 , 001' HIGHS Gone are the days' when-a person took gym onee a weeki if he felt like it. Today if you are seventeen or over. you take gym every day and like it. And, surprisingly enough, most of the fellows do enjoy it, lll spite of the rather vigorous rralisthenties dished out by Coaches Love and Garrison. Some rugged games have developed in t.his class running from 'ilfommando Soc- cer," in which you ean use anything except a knife, and toueh football, to boxing. wrestling, and tumbling.

Although somewhat smaller than some of the bands in the past, the results were just as pleasing. For their first public appearance, the band played for the Inter-Church Council. The girls' chorus appeared along with the band. The marching band was not as active as it has been in the past. However, the band played for most of the football a11d basketball games. On Armistice Day the band and chorus presented a very impressive program. In it was the dedication of tl1e service flag and the placing of the gold stars 011 it. This year we had a new feature. This was the all girl orchestra, started just after Christmas vacation. They played for club meetings, luncheons, dinners, and for assemblies. Most of these girls in the orchestra will be re- turning next year The highlight of the year. as far as the whole music department was concerned. was the bo11d show. The band, the chorus, and several different ensembles all took part. O11 Sunday, the thirtieth of April, our service men 's honor roll was dedicated. At this time the high school bavnd played with the Great Lakes Naval Training Station band, and the girls' octette sang. Although somewhat smaller than other years, a music contest was held in La Salle on April twenty-second. A-1 rating was given Alese Buck on her piano solo and her vocal solo. Shirley Stpandet was given a One rating on her violin solo. Belva Goode and Barbara Bannon also received a One rating on their vocals. Betty Trenter received a rating of Two on her selection. The accompanist was Mrs. Buck. The girls' octette received a rating of One and also had all "A" ratings on their criticisms. Glenn Kerr accompanied them. The octette was composed of Barbara Bannon, Cylinda Cryder, Belva Goode. Betty Trenter. June Allan, Alese Buck. Charlene Panish and Elizabeth Hagen. The annual spring concert proved to be very exciting. At that time the Music Department was presented with a distinguished citation award given by the Treasury Department for outstanding community service during war time. Only one or two other schools in the state have received this award. The final appearance of the Music Department for this year will be made when the band a11d other ensembles play for graduation. NYith the close of the graduation -exercises, we see another successful year come to a close. In spite of the many handicaps and disadvantages presented by the war, the Music Department has carried on very successful season. Forty-Tivo School Plays This year the school presented not merely two plays, but three. All of them were well worth seeing. ln the late fall the Juniors eame through with tiying colors on their two one-aet plays: "Rich Man, Poor Man" and "Make Room for Rodney." The characters were Betty Larson, Barbara Miller, Keith Bartlett, Dalene Ballard, Gordon Sampson. Josephine Eleopoulos, Dorothy Bowles, Fharlene Panish. Shirley Grove, Veronica Chubb, and Lyle Craig of "Rich Man, Poor Man" Hllfl in "Make Room for Rodneynz Mary Voleman. Charlene Panish, Dorothy Bowles. Dalene Ballard, Herb linger, Ed Carr, Paul Diekman, and Jerry Ford. Veronica had quite a hard time selling everything, but you'll have to admit she managed well, especially with "Doe" l'raig's assistant-e. Herbie also managed to get his sister, Fhar. married off to the right man. The all-school play. "Best Foot Forward", was, perhaps. the most thiekly populated play we've had in some time. There were seventeen charac- ters in all: Bob Ellis, Frank Perueea. Gordon Sampson, John May, Werner Frank, Rella Sklut, Belva Goode, Virginia Hagen, Marquita llerner, June Allan, Susan Kindelspire, Ed Farr, Paul Di:-kman, Jean Peat-oek, Tom Allan, Jack McKee. and Jim Bell. Sinee there were so many eharaeters, it would be impossible to eom- ment on every one of them, but to those who saw the play nothing more need be said. To those who didn 't, rest assured that every one of them was exeel- lent in his own particular part. The play as a whole was very well done, and the timing was especially good. Aside from the acting in these plays. or any other play for that matter, there is the work of the back-stage workers. Their job was very well done this year. For the Junior plays there were Bob and Rich Higgins. Shirley Rudow, Christine Springer. Mary tfoleman. and Dorothy Vanden. For the all-school play: Marge Agate. Norma Agate, Pat Baker, Delores Costello, Malcolm Stuart, David Boyle. Riehard Higgins. Selma Brady, Dick Bull, and Marian Morrison. Since most of these people will be bat-k next year there is no eause for fear for future plays. They 'll be well taken 4-are of. Forty-T11 Vcc WigWam Last October Mr. Starke came to the Student Council with thc news' that the Rotary Club was eager tc sponsor a t'Teen Age Recreation Center" if the Student Council and the students would make the rules and plans. The Rotary Club rented the main tioor of the Masonic Tlemple for the Center. November found us working very hard: we scrubbed, painted. and waxed. The Rotary hired Mrs. Ventress as matron, supplied a. 'tjuke box," and turned it over to us. ln keeping with our Indian traditions the Center become appropriately christened the "XYig'XVa1n". Games. cards. and ping- pong paddles and balls were donated to the "WigXYam", and it was opened in December. Memberships were 5Qc a montligand in the first month almost 250 men.bership were sold. Pop, ice cream cones. ice cream bars. and fudg- cicles were sold to refresh the weary warriors. NYe have had our share of trouble. but we've also had a lot of fun. XYhen the juke box broke down, along came Jim Bell with his orchestra, the "Swing Shifters", and they played often for parties and other affairs until we got a juke box After that. they played for the more important functions. Around that time sundaes. milk shakes, sandwiches, hamburgers. and hot dogs were added to the menu of our coke bar. In Xlarch Mrs. Ventress resigned: we were all sorry to see her go. but our luck still held, as Miss Gossmeycr and Miss Curry volunteered to take over the "tWig"XVa111" for the month of April. The mothers in the P.-T.A. are now in charge of the "XVig'xYan1". XYe'were very glad that they have given up their time for the furthering of the Youth Center and the purpose behind it. With this wonderful cooperation from the Rotary, faculty and P.T.A., the Hhvighvtlllln is sure to continue its successful beginning. Buy A Bondl "Buy a bond, lady?" t'Lo0k. sir, you can make a wonderful profit off these bonds if you hold them. How about buying a couple?" This is a sample of what was going around town during our last bond drive. You see, the high school and Junior High were given the privilege and also the responsibility ot seeing that our Fourth VVar Loan was a success in Morris. lt was, as we went way over the top., which was set at fF75,000, the purchase price of a Mustang Pursuit plane. supposed to be the fastest plane in existence. The final report at this writing is over rF89,000. Take your hreath away? XVell, evidently it pleased Uncle Sam also as we have received a certifi- cate for outstanding work in selling bonds. Our Music department. Physical Education. and Home Economics de- partments were also presented with an award for meritorious efforts in pre- sentmg the Bond Show. . Words cannot express the pride of both the students and the ,faculty and the breath-taking feeling which overtook most of them as the date for the close of the drive drew near and the figures steadily mounted. In fact, by the close of the drive we had reached 2583.000 and were still going up. Son-e of the students kept selling bonds even after the drive. Their efforts were also very much appreciated. g And now, .dear readers, even if you forget the figures mentioned above, remember this: This is your country, our country, and to keep it that Way, "Let's have a. repeat performance next year", or even better.
