MOODY Curlodiau of lhe High School lf7l The Mounder of 1943 it THE DEAR OLD SCHCOL jean Allen The school was a bustling, busy old place, Alive with shrill giggles and many a faceg The students were hurrying first here and then there And a spirit of gaiety filled all the air. Noises were floating all over the hall, And one could not hear e'en the loudeit call. Shouts from the Playroom floated up from belowg And everyone seemed to just tear to and fro. Last night as I walked in the gloomy, old hall, I heard not a sound-silence reigned over allg And I thought to myself it was really quite strange That youth's merry voices could make such a change. l8l QWfQ45fQf5WW ww Mfw Wm CLASSES ik The Mounder Ol l943 RALPH HUDSON "More wise, more learned, more just, more everything."

There have been some of our old friends leave us, and into our ranks have come some new ones. We have worked hard and played hard during these four years Hsome of us more than others, perhaps, but all have tried to do their share. Now we find, with a feeling of sorrow and regret, that these happy days have come to an end. We are leaving our friends here and are going out into a world in which we must face the uncertainty and doubt we know the future holds. But before we go, we would like to express our sincere thanks to the members of our school board and faculty for the help and consolation they have given us, and our kindest wishes go to the other members of our school, to whom we would like to will these few things which have made our stay here more happy. To you juniors, we would like to leave for your next year, all the joys and sorrows that being Seniors has held for us-joys you may experience as upper classmen and sor- rows you will meet when it comes time for you to leave next spring. To you Sophomores, we would like to will all the fun and enjoyment that we de- rived from our junior year. Our junior play, "june Mad," and especially our junior- Senior Banquet were experiences we shall never forget. And to you Freshmen, we would like to will three more glorious years in our school, and may you make the most of them and enjoy them as we have done. -THE SENIOR CLASS.

Getting off to an encouraging start by winning its first game, which was with Pecatonica, the team showed promises of retaining the standard set up by former Mound Teams. How- ever, a streak of bad luck hit the boys, and repeated failures to tip the score in our favor, placed the team at the end of the line in the Conference. The school is looking forward to a promising team in the next two and three years, based on several lower classmen whose skill, aided by height, indicates that the discouraging year of 19-il-1943 will he redeemed. E233 if The Mounder of 1943 FOOTBALL It is difficult to measure the success of a Mt. Morris football season in scores alone. Al- though the Mounders won only the first of five games, they played every game with determ- ination until the final whistle. For several seniors, it was a disappointing final season, but they knew that Coach Reimer would have seven experienced lettermen back for next year to build the foundation for a strong team. At the close of the season, Harold Palmer was voted the most valuable player to the team, and Frank Aulfderbecld was voted honorary captain for the season. Major letter winners for the 1942 season were: Frank Aufderbeck, Harold Brinker, Paul Brinker, Ralph Hudson, Don Medlar, Tom Prugh, Lyle Towns, Vincent Horst, Christy Krug, Harold Palmer, jim Rohleder, Dick Shank, Ted Incontro, Bill Messer, and Russell Stonebraker. Bill Coffman was awarded a manager's letter. DO YOU KNOW YOUR ALPHABET? From first grade to the end of your senior year in high school-'tis a worthy accom- plishment, we think-a long space of time has elapsed since we first learned our "abc's and proudly recited them teacher. However, wel now have another alphabet. How many events of the sports year do you remember? Maybe this will refresh youu memory. Did you know that: A stands for Aufderbeck-a regular "Bronko" Nagurski at fullback-too bad we didn't find it out sooner. B stands for that basketball that disappeared last winter. Where did it go? C is for coach. Would anybody have liked the job? D means "Demon" Deneau. Many were the sore and aching bodies after a scrimmage against him. E symbolizes that enthusiasm on the part of the student body that never died down. F is for the poor freshmen who went out for football and stayed out. Oh well, their lot wasn't nearly as hard as in previous years although Willie Incontro might think so. G stands for grey, the color Coach Reimer's hair was by the end of our basketball season. H is for head, that which Lyle Towns lit on after his dive in the shower room. I is in recognition of the invalids, Tom Prugh and Christy Krug, who both received in- injuries in their joints, or to be more explicit, their knees. L stands for the laps around the football field. Whether it was two, three, or ten laps, Vince Horst invariably beat everybody around. Am I kidding? M means delicious Macaroons. Need I say more? N stands for nifty and natty-our cheerleaders. O is for Oregon-near to us in location, but plenty far away in that final football score. P must be Palmer. He's only a junior, but opponents knew it when he tackled them. How- ever, it seems that Hal himself at times had trouble remembering who he had been tackling' or even where he was playing. is quality-that for which Mt. Morris always strives. stands for redheads. The Mounders could have put an entire team on the basketball floor composed of them-namely: Coffman, Deneau, Bartow, Shank, and Hudson. J K Q R S means snow, sleet, and slush. Such were the weather conditions at Mt. Carroll when we slipped and slid to a 6-0 victory. Remember? T would be Towns. A little scrapper was Lyle and as powerful as dynamite when touched off. U stands for underdog-the role the Mounders played most of the year. V is vim, vigor, vitality, victory, and vitamins. Bill Colffman said that he thought we had the first three, but needed more of the last two. W means water boy Wright. This modern version of Gungha Din was noted for his ability of doing the least things in the greatest space of time. X marks the spot. What spot? Why, the one that Coach was always on, of course. Y is you-the person who is reading this. Remember that this was written in a spirit of fun and not intended to offend anybody in any way. Z stands for the zither that will be easy to play compared with writing a column like this. i24 l .L The Mounder of 1943 gif Top Row-Horst, Stonehralter. Shank, H. Brinker, Medlar, T, lncontro.

M CLUB The Club, which was originated four years ago, consists of the hoys who have earned major letters in school athletics. The outstanding goal of the organization is to promote and encourage participation in athletics for the boys in school. Several social gatherings, including an initiation banquet, were held at which the main emphasis, fitting for a group of boys, was placed upon food. Coach Reimer was unanimously elected as sponsor for the year. Pl'6J'jLl6I1f .,,,.,.

The Council endeavors to develop student responsibility, initiative, and leadershipg promote proper student-faculty relationship, furnish citizenship train- ingg promote general welfareg aid in the administration of the school, and other problems that arise during the school year. All the various types of school entertainments come under the guidance of the Council, including lyceum numbers and school assemblies, School dances are sponsored by the Student Council, and up-to-date records are purchased for the school. The activity room is a popular place for students during the morning and noon periods. Many of the students became ex- pert ping-pong and badminton players. Their skill was demonstrated in the all-school tourna- ment, which was supervised by William Coffman. The Council also helps the student body with regard. to the war effort. A student panel discussed many activities in which the student body could participate. The Council conducted a letter-writing project to all the men in the service, who were graduated from our high school recently. The making of model airplanes for the U. S. Navy was a new project super- vised by the Council. One hundred pounds of fat were collected, and the funds were given to the junior Red Cross. The fifth annual "Big Brother and Sister Day" was held in May' for the rural and town eighth grade pupils. This has proved to be a help to all up-and-coming Freshmen. Due to the fact of gasoline rationing none of the members attended the State Student Council Convention held at Peoria, Illinois. OFFICERS P1-widen: .......... ...................... ..d...

NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY The National Honor Society members are chosen by the faculty on the basis of Scholarship, Leadership, Character, and Service. Three members from the junior class were elected last spring. They are: Helen Franklin, Ralph Hudson, and Lois Palmer. Four more were chosen. from the senior class this fall. They are: Doris Cratty, Gerald Deneau, Charles Diehl, and Elaine Dohlen. The members serve as librarians, and the money from fines is used for improve- ments in the library. Marion Knodle and Jean Allen also acted as librarians. The Society feels keenly the loss of Miss McColl who served so faithfully and ef- ficiently as adviser since the Mt. Morris Chapter received its charter in 1952. Mr. Hen- ricks is now the sponsor. OFFICERS P,-efidwzz ,,,,.,.,..,. ......................, ....... R A LPH HUIJSON Vit-6 Preyidenz .,..... .......

The purpose of the club is to make the girls more competent for secretarial positions. Outside speakers were secured to give the girls pointers on what is expected of office workers. The Commercial Club had, as its proj- ect, the making of an honor roll for men in the service- who have graduated from this school. The meetings were held during the eighth period of the first and third Wednesdays of the month.

SOCIETAS GLYMPENORUM The Latin Club, newly organized this year, is a member of the nation-wide organi- zation, the junior Classical League. The object of the club is to create an interest in and an appreciation for classical language and culture and provide an opportunity for Latin students to meet socially. The theme for the year was the study of Roman and Greek Mythology. The' meet- ings consisted of reports on Roman life and myths, Roman games, and other special features. A myth-writing contest was held to see which member could write the best myth. A Roman banquet was held in the spring at which many Roman foods were served. Societas Olympenorum had several parties during the year. At some of the parties Roman foods were served as refreshments. OFFICERS Prefidmz .........,. ..... .............. ..........

The Business 0 Kalmle Brothers Company is printing magazines, house organs, many kinds of publications, catalogs, and advertising matter by both the letterpress and rotogravure processes. LOCATION- Mount Morris, Illinois, a town ot 2,350 population, 105 miles due west of Chicago, on the Burlington Railroad. CUSTOMERS- Magazine and trade-paper publishers, labor organizations, religious and welfare bodies, fraternal societies, service clubs, business and professional groups, schools and industrial concerns. DISTANCE- Our customers come from all parts of the country, ranging from Boston and New York to Denver and the Pacific Coast. Distance is overcome by using every modern method ol communication. Oltices are maintained in Chicago and New York, and are connected by teletype with the plant at Mount Morris. FACILITIES- Complete as will be found anywhere. In addition to the usual equipment of a large printing plant we have an art department, engraving shop, electro- type foundry, mailing and shipping department, including the making-up and maintenance of mailing lists. Everything is under one roof and one control. BIG PUBLISHERS- A battery ot nine web magazine presses, all printing two colors, three rotogravure presses, besides two-color flat-bed and tour- and live-color rotary presses for printing covers and inserts, provide facilities for maga- zines ol large circulation. Mailing and shipping from a point so near both the geographical and railroad centers ol the country also has its obvious advantages for periodicals with national circulation. MAILING LISTS- We handle the mailing lists lor most of our customers. Of the 8,000,000 names on file here, the majority are on Pollard-Alling stencils, a high-speed economical metal-plate system, but we are prepared to handle other types ot lists too. PAPER- We buy the paper tor many ot the magazines that we print. This is because the 12,000 tons required annually command a better price than the average publisher is able to get, and also because relieving the publisher of the necessity of tieing up working capital in paper is a service that puts dollars in his pocket. GROWTH- The reason for such a large printing business being found in a small town twe employ over 800 people and pay out 251,000,000 a year in wagesl is that publishers, as well as other business men, go where they get the proper attention and where costs and other factors are in keeping with the demands of the times. Write for further information or come and see us. Visitors are welcome. Main Office and Plant: Mount Morris, Illinois CHICAGO-160 North LaSalle Street. NEW YORK-420 Lexington Avenue.
