THECAULDRON1946 History of Morton The first house built in this locality was a log cabin erected in 1826. Names associated with these early days are those of the Evans, Campbell, Crosby, Wilcox, and Dahlquist families. Abra- ham Lincoln, friend of Uriah Crosby, spoke several times at "Liberty Hall" which served as the schoolhouse and church for the countryside. Morton might be said to have its be- ginnings as a community center in 1850, the early plans including a schoolhouse on what is now Main Street. In the per- iod from 1860 to 1875, families of Swiss and Southern Germans joined the ear- lier inhabitants, and established homes in the vicinity. In 1871, the old, one-room school was replaced by the neat, frame building pictured in these pages, with subsequent Fire Department Third from right, William Brunnemeierg left end, Chas.

Page 5 o THECAULDRON1946 History oi Morton additions until the whole structure was in its turn superseded in 1928 by the beautiful grade school building now in use. The first highschool building was erected in 1903, was remodeled in 1921, and was enlarged in 1938-1939. The school has grown from a small institu- tion with twenty students, two teachers, and a limited curriculum to an enroll- , , - I ment of almost two hundred, eleven teachers, and a curriculum which in- cludes vocational and business training, as well as a wide range of academic subjects. It is fully accredited with the University of Illinois, and with the North Central Association. Many of its activity groups are affiliated with nat- ional organizations, and progress and improvement are evident in all lines. Interurban Train, 1907 Second from left, Pete Yentes, conductor. 1911.

A reflective glance over the years just past shows that he has done many things to help the students of M. T. H. S. Privileges granted have fostered self-disci- pline among the students, and, where actions proved James G. Hatcher the majority not yet ready for them, the removal of privileges has helped the student body to recognize the realities of life. The individual student, called into the office for a conference, has found the prin- cipal ready to listen to the pupil's side, as well as to explain his own point of view. The school as a whole feels honored that Mr. Hatcher was a member of the advisory board of the Illinois Association of Student Councils this past year, and that his term has been extended for the coming year. BOARD CDF EDUCATICDN Wise planning and careful management have long characterized the work of the Morton Township High School Board. As in other years, high standards have been maintained in all departments of the school. Progressive policies have been formulated, and an excellent spirit of co-operation has prevailed among the members of the board, the ad- ministration, and the faculty. J. B. Getz E. C. Robison J. N.

We find it hard to leave this school, Our teachers, friends, and classmates allg But know that in the years to come We'1l have happy memories to recall. Much praise is due our teachers For the fine work they have done, Not only in guiding their classes, But for kindness toward everyone. May all the good things they have taught us Be an inspiration for each day, To help us meet our problems In our journey along life's highway. As we depart from our Alma Mater, Our motto does our thoughts express: WE'RE NOT AT THE TOP, BUT CLIMBING- Reaching toward our goal-SUCCESS. - Rosemary Jacob.

The present staff, therefore, be- gan with the feeling that, the great conflict over, and the world on its way back to life as it once was, the task now could probably be handled quite easily in our spare moments. Alas! The number of such moments between Sep- tember first and May twenty-eighth, we find, ap- pears immensely greater in prospect than in retro- spect. Was there even one? Nor did we anticipate the long delays while we waited for materialsg the practical impossibility of getting more than two staff members together at one time, because of crowded schedules and conflicting programsg nor the infinite number of details that must be attend- ed to. On the other hand, neither did we foresee the helpful hands that would be extended to us here and there from outside our own ranks, nor the genuine interest and the co-operative spirit with which our members worked wherever there was need of their efforts. Through them, the task was somehow brought to completion. We offer the result to our friends with the hope that they may find pleasure in its pages. ard Goodyear, Virginia Getz, and Mr. Zwanzig.

Senior Cldss Play On November 9, the play "Everybody's Crazy" was presented by the senior class. The play tells of the struggles of three young col- lege students to raise money by running a haunted hotel. As a last resort, Tommy Wilkins impersonates his cousin, a famed ballet dancer, and Elmer Sneed tries his skill as a psychiatrist. They acquire sev- eral guests, including the girl Herb loves, and her aunt, who refuses to let her niece marry a poor col- lege student. After many hilarious incidents and skirmishes with the ghost, they capture him and learn of a hidden treasure. The boys find it, and everything ends happily.

Most of the gad- gets promised for after the war have become a commonplace and familiar part of our daily lives. I was therefore not greatly surprised last month to re- ceive a telephone call from Ruth Huette Nohl, and to hear the pride in her voice as she announced that her husband had given her a new airplane for an anniversary present. Ruth pro- posed that we initiate the Silver Streak, as she called it, by taking a little jaunt around the world. I could see by the television attachment that she was ready at the moment and im- patient to be off. Having had no lunch, I therefore hastily snatched a couple of concentrated food tablets, and ran to my own little helicopter. In three minutes, I was with Ruth at the Mackinaw Airport, and admiring her beautiful new possession. This air- port received its name from the for- mer town of Mackinaw, recently be- come a suburb of Morton. While wait- ing for me, Ruth had radioed the for- mer Mary Rose Sorensen, who is liv- ing on a farm in this region, to be sure to be on the look-out for us. Al- most at once we saw Mary Rose and her husband plowing in the fields be- low, and waving their straw hats to bid us "Good-bye." Our first stop was at San Francis- co, where we found it necessary to re- fuel. To our surprise, the owner of the prosperous establishment where we landed was William Dallinger, who told us he was having a great deal of trouble with his bookkeeping. How- ever, he had high hopes now of get- ting out of the red, because of his ap- proaching marriage to Eileen Stetzler. Eileen had been summoned by Willie to help him get along, and how they were getting along! Deciding to get something to eat be- o Pablo 30 RON1946 fore taking off on our next long hop, we inquired of Willie about a suitable place. He gave us directions to what he called a "swell joint", advertised as "Louie's 102." When we walked into the cafe, who should usher us to our seats but Howard Goodyear, Jr. How- ard reported that he had given up farming several years ago, because it did not give him time for the more exciting things of life. All we can say is that the food was delicious, and why shouldn't it be, with a chief cook like Frances Roth! She had accom- panied Louie on the trip west, just as an old friend, but he persuaded her to stay. Could there have been more to it? After bidding good-bye to the good old U. S. A., we boarded our plane and were off for the Hawaiian Islands. Here we were greeted in the Hawai- ian tradition, and were taken to the best hotel-"Renner's Hang-Out." A large sign above the door read, "If you can't hang-out, hang over." While at dinner this evening, we were enter- tained by Warren's Hawaiian Music Makers, originally from Brooklyn. The main attraction was a song and dance number by Lillian Woerner, decked out in her best grass skirt. There were rumors around that Lillian and War- ren were secretly married several months ago. Having cabled ahead that we were on our way, we were met at the air- port in Tokyo but our old friend and schoolmate, Albert I-Iohstadt. Albert had recently taken the place of Gen- eral MacArthur, Who retired because of old age. Albert won much .popular- ity because of his senior term paper on "Youth and World Peace." The private secretary whom he had de- manded from the government, was Wilma Schick. A party was given in our honor, because there were several graduates of the class of '46 in the Ar- my of Occupation. Allan Evans, the highest paid American soldier, was unable to attend, because his wife, whom we had known as Eva Straesser, was quarantined at their home in Tok- Continued on Page 100 xi., Lu 13, " 3 1 CZ' 2: 3. 5 V 8?

The meeting was held this year in Peoria, at the Pere Marquette, on April 12 and 13, with an attendance of over twelve hundred boys and girls from all over the state. Dolores Beyer served as convention secretary, and Mr. Hatcher as a mem- ber of the Advisory Board. Both were on the pro- gram. Howard Rapp, as vice president of the Pekin Dis- trict Association, presided at a session in Spring- field in November, and Wayne Strunk participated in a panel discussion on Compulsory Military Train- ing.

Some of the topics discussed during the year were: Boy-Girl Relationshipsg Datingg Etiquette, and Marriage. Dr. Hodel addressed one meeting on "Sex Problems of Adolescents", and movies on "Social Diseases" were shown by Mrs. Black.

Under the sponsorship of Miss Neeley, and largely through her suggestion, several new ideas were put into operation in the club's activities, including a theme and a point system. The theme from which our programs were devel- oped was "Around the World."

The play centered around Kay Sutton, the spoil- ed daughter of a rich man, who thought she was in love with an unscrupulous Frenchman. Miss Prudence, an old friend of Kay's father, was in charge of the Rutherford School for Girls, an in- stitution badly in need of money. Miss Sutton was to be sent to the school, but she planned to run away to join her fiance. Her plans were foiled by Bud and Tom, so she impersonated herself. Kay's father revealed Henri's scheme of marrying Kay for her money by denying she was his daughter.

Once in a while, a beautiful moon- lit night, and frequently a hard-won victory, rewarded their efforts, but, win or lose, the girls could always be counted upon.

A. A This year the Girls' Athletic Association has been one of the outstanding organizations of the school. Its purposes are: to create better sportsmanship and co-operation, make profitable use of leisure time, develop athletic ability, and provide an outlet for surplus energy. About twenty members attended the G.A.A. Play Day held October 13, 1945, at Washington High. Girls as representatives from six high schools, par- ticipated in this event. Teams made up of girls from each of the schools strove for first place honors in softball, deck tennis, dodgeball, and basketball. The annual G.A.A. banquet was held at the Civic building on Saturday, May 25. Pat Strunk, vice pres- ident, was our capable toastmistress. Sixty girls re- ceived awards for achievements during the year. In- cluded among them were the following seniors who received the fourth year awards: Lanora Ackerman, Rosemary Jacob, Mary Rose Sorensen, Ruth Huette, and Lillian Woerner.

Money has been earned to defray the cost of the tokens, and it is hoped that the custom can again be carried out. Fifteen members of the club are in the graduating class.

The football game with Chillicothe was almost called off because of rain. Following the game, a short program of speeches, songs, and other en- tertainment was presented in the gym. Then came supper in the Home Ec. rooms, and a dance in the study hall. It is our hope that this may become an annual function in our school. Standing: Messrs. Ed. Hauter, Wm.

They co- operated with the Student Council in sponsoring the first M. T. H. S. homecoming football game. Re- freshments were served after the game by the Home Economics Club. The transportation of the teams, issuance of sea- son tickets, handling of the receipts of athletic con- tests, approving and awarding of athletic letters were but a few of the numerous problems that were discussed at their meetings. The association rewarded the band for perfor- mances at the basketball games by giving them the proceeds of one basketball game, called the band benefit game. The secretarial work was efficiently handled by Della Bartelmay, serving her second year as secre- tary-treasurer. Distribution of identification slips to students wishing to see out of town games, was one of her frequent duties. We all hope that next year's Athletic Association will extend its services and perfect a plan for an activity ticket for students. o Page 48 Q3 3 'A lu x-fi Xi 5 Nwvx n QUE? GAMES AND SPQRTS 45.

HERB ROTH and RONNIE RICHARD Managers - Two good guys who were always on the job and ready to help, whenever they were needed. LLOYD REDIGER CEJ it-This has been Lloyd's first year in football. His play- ing at end was great, along with his ability to tackle the opponent. FRITZ RAPP CH.B.J-Fritz, a junior and a two-year letter winner, is a mighty fast and shifty halfback. He had a little tough luck in breaking his finger early in the season. HOWARD RAPP iH.B.Ji-Hod was in- jured during the first part of the sea- son and was absent for a time. He is a senior and a backfield man who'll really be missed next year. JACK STUMPF fT.Jf-Jack is a senior, and a lineman who saw a good deal of action this year. He played his best game against Chillicothe. WILLIAM SANDERS CEJ i'-Bill always played a reliable defensive game. He's another senior and our best pass catcher, who will be a loss to the squad when he graduates. MARLAND RICHARD CE.Jf-Marlie is another great defensive player. He played continually and hard, especi- ally in the last half of the Chillicothe game. DON RAPP fF.B.J'l'-Don was one who dug in and tore the defense apart. His blocking and tackling was long re- Psgn 52 membered by the opponents. TED MEYERS CTJ-Ted is only a soph- omore this year and played as a reg- ular. He should improve greatly in the next two years and prove tough for his opponents. RAY ZIMMERMAN ICJ-Ray was the team's center this year and only a sophomore. The opposing team had better watch him in the next few years. GEORGE STIMELING iG.J - George was the only guard in the conference and one of the three in the whole state to score a touchdown while on defense. His famous submarine play will be back again next year. HAROLD YORDY fH.B.J-Harold was the good natured boy who was deter- mined to get a touchdown, but only succeeded in getting unnecessary roughness penalties. WARREN RENNER CTJ it-Warren was held up to a great extent by an oper- ation this year. He's the kind of a fel- low that the opposition had trouble getting around. WAYNE STRUNK CQ.B.Jf-Wimp was our outstanding defensive player this year. Being a senior and our captain- elect, he will surely be missed next year. ELMER CRAGER CG.Ji'F-Elmer had a knack of getting the man with the ball. He played his best defensive game against Lincoln Frosh-Soph. ALBERT HOHSTADT iG.Jf-Abbott is a senior this year, whose ability to pull out from his line position of guard to pass the ball, was reliable. ffl Seniors.

Most of the basket- ball boys had been in football, and were obliged to work hard to get into condition for the win- ter sport. Five returning lettermen and many promising prospects boosted Coach Gould's hopes at the beginning of the schedule. Lacking height, except for Gerald Mueller, Morton's team relied upon their famous fast- break and fire-brand style of playing. Great speed was a distinguishing factor in our set-up. Defense was the keynote to the offense, and this can be realized when we consider that Morton had the best defensive average in this part of the state. We started with an excellent record of twelve victories, only to have our jinx, Delavan, break it. Injuries and illness hit our squad, and several games had to be played without a full complement of men. Never can it be said that Morton does not always give its fans their share of thrills. Min- ier's games all proved to be exciting, and our rivalry with Tremont inspired a fast game on their own floor. The season tapered off with a sprinkling of defeats and wins and an energetic try at a bid for the state tournament. Much of the credit for our victories goes to the coach, and to our crowd which always backed the team. A large berth is open on next year's team, because nine of the first ten are graduating. T H E C A U L THE SECOND TEAM A host of underclassmen form the nu- cleus for our second team. This squad has annexed a formidable record in the past season by winning 19 games and losing only three. The three losses in- cluded Spaulding Frosh-Soph., and Mor- ton's War Veterans.

The back log of freshmen and soph- omores this year is the largest conting- ent we have had for a long time. A glance at the statistics on the other page shows that our second team pos- sesses a strong offense along with a stronger defense. With a group like this coming on, prospects are excellent for improvement in the years just ahead.

He was a very good floor player, making all his shots count. Flu and colds interrupted his playing from time to time. WAYNE STRUNK CWimpl, an alternating guard and forward, played a wonderful floor game at both positions. A very good scorer, he could go strong all through the game. HOWARD GOODYEAR CLouieJ was one of the first players to develop so high- ly between his junior and senior years. Having reached his greatest playing ability about the middle of the season, he was set back by the flu. DON RAPP CDonl was an alternating forward and guard. A very versatile member of the team, Don maintained his position well all through the game. WILLIAM SANDERS CBillJ, our long shot artist of the year, was very help- ful to the squad. Strong in action, he helped to organize both plays and players. ELMER CRAGER CSno0ksJ was one on he of the strongest defensive men the team. Although a low scorer, handled the ball well.

If the team needed a few points, he could be count- ed upon. He was also good at long shots. . MARLAND RICHARD tH0merJ found his basketball ability as a senior. A tall fellow with a good reach, he play- ed well, but lacked experience. He could always rally the team in a tight spot because he had plenty of driving spirit. FREDERICK RAPP fFritzJ, a junior, proved to have first team qualities. Making up for his shortness by speed and quick thinking, he used many oi the opponents' mistakes to get the ball for Morton. GERALD MUELLER fGerryJ was the tallest man on the team and one of the tallest in the county. A high scorer all the way through, he was very dan- gerous under the basket. He was taken from games now and then be- cause of a bad knee. I P Elmer Crager B111 Sanders Bob Carius Marland Richard Page 57 o THECAULDRON1946 f pw 5 4427 S 2 W - A , -4 . ,L ,I I !

Track With a total of seven returning lettermen and a host of promising athletes, Morton is well on the way to a successful track season. Since our weak- est events are the 880, the mile, and the 440, plenty of room is provided for new track aspirants. As this book goes to press we have not lost a meet, and our hopes are strong for another county title. We have won this honor two years straight, and with these experienced track men-Don Rapp, Wayne Strunk, Bob Hauter, Fritz Rapp, Marland Richard, and Bob Carius-we are confident of a win. In the first meet, Morton splurged to a decisive win against Mackinaw and Tremont, totaling 110.5 points. Tremont was second, 6213, and Mackinaw, third, 11251. Having twice overpowered East Peoria in the last two years, we again defeated them in a close meet 157.3-53.63. Journeying next to Delavan, we met Minier and the hosts in a heated contest, which resulted in Morton's coming out on top with 72.5 points, while Delavan ended with 60.5, and Minier, with 12. With a second, a tie for second, and a third, Mor- ton scored eleven points in the district meet, win- ning seventh place thereby. This year, three boys, Don Rapp, Howard Rapp, and Ken Rein will repre- sent us in the State Meet.

This shows that the ability to win was found in all classes. The year opened with the softball tournament, resulting in a tie among the seniors, juniors, and freshmen. This was resolved by the victory of the freshmen, with Joyce Grimm, captain. The juniors won the volleyball tournament un- der the leadership of Doris Bielema. The basketball tournament proved to be ano- ther heated contest, senior, junior, and sopho- more teams again tieing. This time, the seniors, under their captain, Eva Straesser, won first honors. Bowling began in March at Knoll's Bowling Palace. After several practice games, teams were formed, the captains being Eleanor Reinken and Ann Brandt. The latter team won in the final game, and received a trophy from Mr. Knoll - the G. A. A.'s first! It was presented at the banquet to Robert Carius, president of the Stu- dent Body, to be placed among other school tro- phies. Page 60 Ouch! My Baclcl The Pyramid Builders!

Associated with him this year have been Mrs. Huette and Robert Tennell, a freshman, both of whom have given capable and effective assistance in the arduous task of keeping our building cheer- ful and pleasant. Absorbed in our own concerns through the swiftly passing four years spent within these walls, members of the class of '46 no doubt have often added to the labor of our friend, "Sam." For this unintentional lack of consideration we ask his pardon, as we here express our ap- preciation for his loyalty and co-operation. May the year to come be a pleasant one for Mr. Huette and his de- partment, and may the good-will which exists between him and the students continue always!

This organization was formed twenty-five years ago, and has grown to be the largest of its kind in this country. Its purpose is to give advice and other assistance in producing yearbooks. One of its most useful services is the care- ful study and criticism of each issue of the annual, from which the staff of the succeeding class is able to learn something of what are considered to be good standards in such publications, and to pattern their own work accordingly. The ratings of books are: All-American, Superior, First Class, Ex- cellent, Second Class, Good, Third Class, High Average, Fourth Class, No Honors. The 1945 Cauldron received a First Class rating. The classification of this book will be received by the school in September. Page 81 V THECAULDRON1946 MORTON CREAMERY Makers of Brookside Butter Morton, Illinois Page 82 A. E.

T. H. S. assembled on the door- step of our Alma Mater, seeking ad- mission to these halls of learning and of lockers and waste paper! So early in the year, the waste paper was not in evidence, but by the end of the first Friday, a goodly accum- ulation was on hand for the janitors to dispose of, and we have diligently helped to keep it from dwindling throughout the four years of our so- journ here. Thus began the second stage of our school experience. The forty-two members of the class quickly adapt- ed themselves to high school rou- tine, and, following the example of older classes, elected officers. How- ard Rapp became our first presidentg Wayne Strunk, vice presidentg and Dolores Beyer, secretary-treasurer. Miss Smith and Miss Waldorf were chosen for our advisors. Having heard of dire punishments that were meted out to freshmen at the annual initiation party, we wait- ed in secret fear for that event, but to outsiders, our manner, we hoped, was one of composure and readiness for whatever might happen. Our dignity was greatly upset, and we felt very foolish, but, on the whole, it was not bad, and We tried to ac- cept it all like good sports. The two principal events of the freshman year, then, as now, were a Wiener roast and a social hour. We enjoyed the first, and the whole school enjoyed the second, being kind enough to pronounce it an un- usual success. Our boys entered all types of sports, and three of them, Bill Sand- ers, Jack Stumpf, and Bob Carius rep- resented us in debate. Jean Litwiller was secretary of Home Ec. Club, and other freshmen participated in the same club, also in G. A. A., Chorus, Band, and Library Club. 1943-1944 The begining of our second year found us with forty members. Ar- thur Bachman had transferred to Peoriag John Homer had gone to Roosevelt Military Academy, and Darrell Beehn, who had joined us the previous year, had now With- drawn from our ranks. Allan Evans entered our class from Delavan dur- ing the year. Bob Carius was chosen presidentg Jean Litwiller, vice president, and Rosemary Jacob, secretary-treasurer. Miss Neeley and Miss Jones were our advisors. Under the competent lead- ership of these officers and advisors, we had a normal, successful, but com- paratively uneventful year. Again our Wiener roast pleased us, and our social hour was an enjoyable occa- sion for the whole school. Although our members seldom be- came conspicuous because of disci- plinary difficulties, and We managed to keep enough names on the honor roll that our scholastic average never drew unfavorable comment, we were nevertheless beginning to be recog- nized in M. T. H. S. Lillian Woerner was secretary-treasurer of G. A. A., Ruth Guth served the Home Ec. Club in the same capacity, Don and How- ard Rapp won distinction in sports, and Bob Carius was manager of the athletics teams. Howard was the first member of the class to be ad- mitted to the M-Club. Other students shared the work and the fun of most of the activities on the campus. 1944-1945 As juniors, our number was still forty, losses of Wayne Knappen, Paul Risen, Mary Schaer, Nelson Wood, and Gladys Vissering being balanced by the acquisition of Bud Fey from Tremontg Doris Kaufman from Minn- eapolisg Marland Richard from East Continued on Page 85 Page 83 Q THECAULDRON1946 Compliments ..0f..

Pg 84 THECAULDRON1946 SENIOR CLASS HISTORY Continued from Page 83 Peoria, and Julie Bringard from East Peoria. The business of the first class meet- ing was the selection of Marland Richard as president, Howard Rapp as vice president, Lillian Woerner as secretary-treasurer, and Mr. Black and Miss Melvin as advisors. Upon Miss Melvin's return to school after her long illness the first semester, Miss Smith took over her duties as sponsor, and Miss Wheeler was giv- en the responsibility for the Philo- sopher. The publication of the monthly paper, the Philosopher, was, according to custom, a junior project. Robert Carius served as editor the first sem- ester, and Lillian Woerner was elect- ed to the position the second semest- er. The staff took its duties serious- ly, and the co-operation among its members made the work pleasant and successful. The junior play, "June Mad," was presented under Miss Brown's direction. It was well-chosen to dis- play the talents of the class, and Hel- en Smith and Lloyd Rediger as the long-suffering, but understanding par- ents, also Warren Renner as Elmer Tuttle, the hired man, will not be soon forgotten. Ruth Huette and Bill Sand- ers in the leading roles, Mary Rose Sorenson, Marland Richard, Jack Stumpf, Dolores Beyer, Lillian Woer- ner, William Dallinger, and Margaret Arnett all gave excellent character- izations of their parts. The juniors now began to foresee a need for money to carry out their plans for the year, so, in addition tr their social hour, they gave a chili supper. This was well-attended, and netted the necessary addition to their funds so that they might make their entertainment for the seniors a suitable one. Well co-ordinated plans and the ge- nius of this class for co-operative ef- fort made the occasion of the Junior Banquet and Prom the climax of the achievements of the group. The Ha- waiian theme was sustained through- out, and the music of Freddie Stevens' orchestra in a tropical garden brought a thrill to all the juniors and their guests. The crowning of the queen, Alice Muselman, by Robert Carius, master of ceremonies, was an out- standing event of the evening. Important offices held by juniors this year were: Virginia Getz, vice- president of G. A. A., and of Girls' Chorus, Howard Rapp, president of athletic association, and of band, Gladys Vissering, secretary of Girls' Chorus, Warren Renner, secretary of Boys' Chorus, Robert Carius, vice president of Student Council, presi- dent of Speech Club, Eleanor Reinken, vice president of Home Ec. Club, and Dolores Beyer, president of Library Club. 1945-1946 Our return to school this year came in the midst of the most serious events of the world's history. The Great War was just concluded, and that by a means which had startled all thinking people into realization that we had been thrust into a new age, with greater problems and re- ponsibilities than had ever before faced mankind. And so it was with mixed feelings that we greeted each other in September, glad to be to- gether again, but with a certain sob- erness at the thought that this was our last year here, and that the duties and problems of adult life were await- ing us in the near future. Nyle Hoch- stettler was missing from our roll, but we were glad to welcome Doris Dausmann back after three years in southern schools during the war. Bud Fey returned to Tremont, Julie Brin- gard transferred to Peoria at the be- ginning of the second semester, and Margaret Hughes joined us in April. Thus our number, as we take our de- parture, is thirty-seven.

Page 99 o THECAULDRON1946 THE CRYSTAL BALL Continued from Page 30 yo with their ten children, all of whom were ill with the measles. Others in- cluded in the party were JackuStumpf and Bob Carius. We hardly knew they were around, and only heard them mumble a few words all evening- something that sounded like "seven- eleven." Our next stop was in India. Wilma had urged us to try to see Lloyd Redi- ger. He has been serving as-a mission- ary for the past three years with the capable assistance of Doris Kaufman. We could not linger in India, but sped on to Arabia. We were eager to reach Arabia, be- cause we had heard that some of the old-fashioned entertainment places still existed. We visited the Hubba Hubba Theatre, starring this week, the "Three Unveilersf' The starring performers had a familiar look, and to make sure that we were not de- ceived, We went back stage, to be greeted by Ruth Guth, Margaret Ar- nett, and Rosemary Jacob. Our visit with them was pleasant, but again we had to hurry, this time to Venice, Italy. Here we chanced to pick up a New York Times paper and learned of the marriage of that great dramatic star, Elsie Uhlman, and of her presence in this very city on her honeymoon. We looked through the hotel register, and as soon as we saw the name "Zeke," knew we couldn't be wrong. We found Elsie in the bridal suite, blushing as usual. An appointment at "Frenchie's" in Paris next claimed us. We had resolv- ed to take advantage of the oppor- tunity to secure some real French clothes. The proprietor of the estab- lishment greeted us with a heavy French accent, which she abandoned as soon as she recognized us. You see, it was Helen Smith. Lanora Ackerman was her most sought-after model. Being normal women, we wanted to 0 Page 100 show off our new clothes. Helen gave us directions for reaching one of the city's most famous night clubs, and warned us that we were going to be really surprised. That evening, having followed her directions, we arrived at Rapp's Tap! The lights were low, the music slow, when the singer, Ann Brandt, walked out on the stage. One look at Hod' and we could tell that he was very well pleased with his talented performer. The cigarette girl looked familiar. Realizing that she was rushing by without recognizing us, Ruth put out her foot. When the girl picked herself up off the floor, we knew we were right-it was Dolores Beyer. She sat down and talked with us for awhile, and informed us that she was still having her troubles. We were enter- tained in a royal manner, Hod serving us the best champagne in the house. Our next stop was Frankfort, Ger- many, at the great science laborator- ies. We knew that Elmer Crager had been here for many years working on a so-called rocket ship. He had just completed it, and wanted us to be the first to ride to the moon in it. How- ever, we declined because of the name of the ship, "Paradise Lost." We had planned next to cross the channel to England, but before we got out of Germany, we had a little trouble with the plane, and had to make a forced landing. We spotted a level field, and with expert manipul- ation, Ruth set the plane down with hardly a jolt. We saw a farmer run- ning toward us, shouting angrily, and when he drew closer, we recognized Wayne Strunk. When he recognized us, his anger disappeared. Wayne in- sisted that we come to his house and have lunch while the plane was be- ing repaired. As we stepped over the threshold, we were astonished to see who was standing in the kitchen- Mrs. Jean Litwiller Strunkl! After a delicious lunch with them and their three healthy children, we said good- Continued on Page 101 THECAULDRON1946 THE CRYSTAL BALL Continued from Page 100 bye, and proceeded on our way to England. Safely arrived in Dover, we motor- ed out to one of the dog farms nearby. Marland Richard showed us around the place, proudly exhibiting his new canine hospital, the head nurse of which was Ruth Belsley. We had heard that Bill .Sanders and the former Virginia Getz were also in England. Marland said they were not far away and that Virginia was hav- ing a terrible time. The help situation was bad, and she was obliged to do her own housework. Bill was working on a project to restore atoms after they had been smashed, and was un- able to give her much assistance, be- yond drying the dinner dishes now and then. We started on the last lap of our journey, to Canada. Gerald Mueller had made it clear in a letter that if we didn't stop to see him, he would never write to us again. Not wanting to dis- appoint him, we obliged. He claims his profession is that of a forest rang- er, and his most recent assignment is tracking down wolves. Looks as if he is on the wrong side! Doris Dausmann, being an outdoors girl, had gone to Canada to keep house for Gerry. Don Rapp was also there, keeping Gerry out of trouble, as he said. Gerry took a few days off and we all went hunting. The trip had taken longer than we planned, because we had found it so hard to leave old friends. Now we had to hurry home. We therefore arose early, and, leav- ing Gerry, Doris, and Don at the breakfast table, sped homeward, ar- riving in time to do the shopping for lunch. Happy memories of old times filled our thoughts as we resumed our daily routine, Ruth in a neat home on North Main, and I, Eleanor Reinken, in my couturier salon on Jefferson Street.

Warren Renner is vice president, and Doris Dausmann is secretary-treasurer. Mr. Zwanzig and Miss Smith are our advisors. The senior play, "Everybody's Crazy," was given in the fall, with William Sanders, Jack Stumpf, Rob- ert Carius, Mary Rose Sorenson, Ruth Huette, Virginia Getz, Helen Jean Smith, Dolores Beyer, Wayne Strunk, Eileen Stetzler, and Warren Renner as members of the cast. Marland Richard who was hurt in a football game the day before the play was unable to take his part, but Lloyd Rediger substituted for him, giving an excellent performance upon very short notice. Miss Brown directed the play, which was full of amusing situations, well-enacted by the cast. The seniors' social hour this year took the form of a hayrack ride and a dance. Everyone had fun-except perhaps Bill and Elmer and Bob, who spent the entire evening repairing a blow out and returning the hayrack to its owner. The juniors this year entertained us with a banquet and a prom. With memories of our experience in that line still quite fresh in our minds, we are able to appreciate fully their ac- complishment and all the effort that went into making it such a beauti- ful and joyous occasion. It has been the crowning social event of the year. Our representatives in sports this year were: Bill Sanders, Wayne Strunk, Gerry Mueller, Marland Rich- ard, Elmer Crager, Don and Howard Rapp, Jack Stumpf, Albert Hohstadt, Howard Goodyear, and Bob Carius. Seniors have entered into all phases of school activities, holding some of- fices, and helping to carry on the work of all the organizations. Robert Car- ius has been president of the Student Council, William Sanders, vice presi- ent, also president of Human Rela- tions Club, Warren Renner, vice president, Eleanor Reinken has been president of F. H. A., Lillian Woerner was president of G. A. A., vice presi- dent of the Library Club, Jean Lit- willer was recording secretary of G. A. A., Albert Hohstadt has been president of band, and fourteen sen- iors, members of that organization, seniors held other offices in M-Club, choruses, athletic association and speech activities. While much of what we have learn- ed in these four yars has been for im- mediate use, and has already been put into practice, a certain amount of it has also been a preparation for a fu- ture work. Many are planning to add to that preparation by going to college, taking business courses, en- tering nurse's training, and various other specialized kinds of training. Plans for this have been carefully thought out and discussed with our parents and teachers. Our activities program has helped us to develop qualities of initiative, co-operation, and leadership and has broadened our interests. But we have also given serious attention to our class room work, not much of which appears in a record of this kind. We have worked together and play- ed together, shared our joys and sor- rows, won success and suffered defeat. The history of our four years is writ- ten. Henceforth, we will stand as in- dividuals, or we will become associat- ed with some other group. May the ideals, the character and the know- ledge gained in our association here guide us as we help to write the his- tory of the future! - If Little Red Riding Hood lived today, The modern girl woul scorn her.

THECAULDRON1946 ,an fzzullfwzaz saw, , By the Freshman Class Once upon a time an American girl GETZ a VALENTNE from a ZIMMER- MAN doing peace time duty in a for- eign POST in a MOATS-covered coun- try near the REIN river. This made her very happy, so that night she went to see the play, "Wil- son," Members of the orchestra which played included famous musicians such as WUTHRICH, UHLMAN, BUS- WINK, and SCHOENBEIN. The mus- ic was written by the well-known com- poser, HOFFMAN. She hadn't known whether to go to the play, or to the local theatre, where a double feature was playing, "Grapes of ROTH" and "Son of RASSI," with her favorite act- or, the handsome RICHARD STRUNK. She decided on the play. After the play, she stopped at a restaurant and ordered a BURGER with onions from the KOCH, whose name was FREIDINGER. While she was waiting for her order, a man at the next table began to choke on a fish bone, so she said to him, "KAUF- MAN, it will be sure to help." Anoth- er customer, complaining that there was no meat in his bowl of chili, was advised to STRMAC. While eating, she heard a RAPP on the window, and looking out, she saw two men fight- ing under a totem BAUM. One was shouting, "You STOLLER from me." A WILKENSON passing by yelled, "HUETTE." This GRIMM scene made her very sad, so she hurried home and unlocked her door with her ROCKE. The following morning, during a walk through the EISELE Park, she passed a mother and two children. One child cried, "CARIUS, Mother, we are so tired." Several older children were in a boat, and one large bully said to a small boy, HROECKER, ROECKERJ' In the distance, she heard a group of Girl Scouts, who were singing, "JACOB'S LADDER" and tunes of Kris KRING le. Miss Getz's next experience was an exciting scene at the race track, where people such as ABERLE, TENNELL, FRINTZ, BURGENER, BRUELL and the dare-devil performer, REDIGER were riding. Many others wished to enter the race, but the manager said, "You must be RICH, You know, more "DOUGHTY!" These walked away disgusted saying, "Oh SHAW!" One rider couldn't mount, so she said, "BAUMAN" to her horse, then all was ready. One child, who lisped when he talked, asked about the race. "HAU- TER, HAUTERJ' He handed the official the gun, saying, "GUNTHER." After the race the boys were told to CURRY their horses. One horse was still quite excited, but soon calmed down when her rider gently stroked her and said, "HO-DEL, HO-DEL!" She then went to a little HOH- STADT and stopped at a dry goods store for three SHERTZ, where a salesman, Mr. SCHIEBER, said, with a German accent, that all she could have was USWIBOLD of material." Our heroine replied, HOYER, kiddin'!" Now that the war is over, I hope the girl's boy friend GETZ home soon. "Before I was born my father hit my mother over the head with a phonograph record-but I'm all right -I'm all right-I'm all right-I'm all right." - Bill D.-"I'm going to be a surgeon." Louie M.--"Not for me. Too much inside work." A hug is a round about way of ex- pressing affection. "Were ou sur rised when ou got .y . , y the nom1nat1on?' "I'll say. My acceptance speech nearly fell out of my hand." "And this is the end of my tale," said the cat as he backed into the lawn-mower.
