The old, feeble lady was showing me pictures of her in her youth, ah what mem'ries recalling! Gazing, I suddenly spied one of curious W form, a queer building. Tearful and sighing she told me this story: 52 "That is the place where I spent the best part of my youth, in that system Known as the Mt. Vernon High Educational Factory. 1922, u f First of September, we, a mighty herd that was fresh from the lower grades q. Entered, enrolled, were assigned to our workrooms to mould some gray matter, History, algebra, science and English were appliances, great were the troubles '. Rising from lack of intelligence, lack of experience, lack of grit, Cruelty in guise of the manager, Echols, a terrible person, Later, accustomed to brow-beating bug-bears, we became more confident l Y Spurned all our masters and mocked all our elders, were detained overtime, QQ Tested at midst of the year, if our work was not pleasing, a return, f Tested at end of the year with the self-same condition, a back place. i Echols, so kind to us laboring faithfully, painfully, allowed us ,, Leave for three months to enjoy ourselves, no work to bother us, worry us, i Joyfully accepting, we hastily fied from our workshops, our prisons. . "Sadly returning the next year, more skillful we renewed our moulding, Mastering carefully the art of persistency, even in the hardest, q Noting our good work, the manager planned for us a masquerade party, it Heartily enjoyed by all those who attended, masters included. l More mid year tests which were trying but taken as a matter of course, just as Those at the end of the term, and then a vacation, what fun! "Some did not come back the next year to finish the work they had started, We who returned then began with much energy to carve on our gray matter, Fear of the overseer was vanishing, dread of our elders was leaving us, 1 Such good opinions of ourselves were formed, and then ruined by our masters, rl Tests came and went and they left no impression upon us-no harm done, i Several' dramatic young persons presented a play called "Seventeen," Greatly enjoyed, and the cast one and all said "We'll go on the stage !", x Holding a gorgeous reception for those who'd tormented us formerly, - We, of all persons, broke all the past records of good entertainers. Great was our joy when vacation time came again to us, three months of it! :Q "Work was then nearing completion next year and our moulds almost finished, ,. Examinations were taken, resulting in throw-back for some of us, I ,r is ? This was the last year of work, and we began with much vim and vigor, ' Great were the players in our company, again were dramatics predominant. Q, Royally treated were we by reception and parties that season, Greatest of all there was held what was then called Commencement, in June, at which l We were accorded small rolls of white paper to certify that we had T Done all the labors to mould this gray matter, our brain, satisfactorily, That we might use them for what we saw fit and in ways we desired. h "Thus closed the happiest period, all my young joys, all my life." 3 Silent became the old woman and silent she gazed at the picture, Quietly wiping the tears that fell glistening from her old eyes.

Years can hardly cover up that place in my mind which is so dear to me-Memories- memories of high school days, old pals, school-day sweethearts, and thought- ful teachers lhow I used to dread to see theml-and now, I wonder, where and how they are. Memory of school days is a thirst not easily quenched, and when someone, somewhere, seemed to say to me "Come, I'll tell you." I answered the call of the mysterious being. Amazing, truths-some sad, some wonderful--seemed to blaze up in front of me and in a very few minutes I learned a little of the lives of my old friends and classmates. Imagine my suprise when I was told that the great criminal lawyer Williams of New York City was none other than Alvin Lacey Williams, my old classmate in Mt. V, H. S. Oh yes! He was a debater in those days, but little did I dream of his some day being the world's greatest criminal lawyer. With him there was another man of no little renown-Roy Allen Jones, the Governor of Illinois. Roy had piloted us through three short years of high school life. but I soon lost track of him after our graduation. The next group which I encountered was made up an author, an orator, and an actor. Emily Kelly, one of the most promising of modern authors, had just finished her book on "Why Chemistry Is a Benefit to the Housewife," and was receiving immense royalties on it. Runyon Irvin, I see, had attained a professorship at Harvard where he is now teaching law. Joe Rainey had become a great tragedian of the theatre world. Will wonders never cease? Theresa Stephenson was at the head of the Woman's Club of America and had as her Vice-President and Secretary, Melba Anderson and Dorothy Woodworth, respectively. Some of the most active members of the organization proved to be Margaret Gausman, Helen Stewart, and Nellie White. A similar organization, only of the opposite sex, next caught my attention. It had as its leader, Bryant Bates, with Frank Richardson and Joe Ames as influential members. Next, I saw a large white building in the business section of Chicago. These oflice rooms revealed to me many of my former friends. Russel Barr, whom I remember as a faithful athletic reporter of the Orange and Black, was working on a great football scandal for the Chicago Tribune, of which Dalton Bundy is Editor-in-Chief. Dalton was Secretary of the class twice during our high school career. Up on the 19th floor was an office with the sign on the door, "Walter Chase, Manager, Girls' Employment Agency." On Pam' P1 ty-taco 0 another oflice door loomed the name of a basketball player of school-day fame, Dr. N. Moore, Optician. I couldn't resist the temptation to take a peek into that office. That ofiice girl-who was she ?-Mary Whitlock-didn't look a day over thirty years! A newspaper next caught my glance. What could that mean? The society column seemed to be the only readable thing in it. "Dorothy Davis Arnold and Louise Menzer Wicks, known for their wealth and fame as society matrons!" I read on down the column. Different names, some of them rather familiar, interested me. Louise Wilbanks, now married, sails for Europe-Thelma Rupard Smith, is conducting a charity bazaar in New York City. Gus Cook next beamed up before me. He seemed to be living in Washing- ton, D. C. and to be a very famous Chemical Engineer. He finished his school- ing at George Washington University. Merle Shoop and Val Boster were joint owners of a large flower shop in Denver, Colorado. Amusing, yet true, Buren Ellis, of football fame, was coaching the Dartmouth College eleven. For a period of three years he had helped them keep a clear and undefeated record. Bernadine Puckett was living quietly in a town nearby-still waiting, I suppose. Taking in the Southern States, I found our little blond, Garnett Camp- bell, at Richmond, Va. as Mrs. James Endicott, Jr. She was running a board- ing house for railroad men. Over in China I saw, faintly, Lillian Hoffman working in a "Near East Relief" campaign which has been going on for two years. Alas! My old home town, Mt. Vernon, Illinois-surely some are still here! Otha Ferguson is now Mrs. Edwin Henn. She is teaching English in the local high school. Ruth Garrison and Madeline Marlow were both matri- monially struck, but I was unable to decipher the men in the case. Both have an interest in the new theatre which is being erected in Mt. Vernon. On the Orpheum Circuit, were Beulah Allen, the great prima donna, and Helen Baker, "the world-famed contralto." They will make their appearance in Mt. Vernon on one of the Orpheum programs at the new theatre. John Eater and Newton Simmons had taken the place of Weber and Fields on this circuit. The last place I visited was the Capitol at Washington. In Congress, I found Edna Mae Thompson, the first woman Senator. Glen Throgmartin, our big running guard of 1922-26, is the Speaker of the House of Represen- tatives. Neil Williams and Ernest Standerfer are members of the Cabinet. Secretary of War, and Secretary of Commerce, respectively. It doeesn't seem possible that this could be the old class of Nineteen Hundred and Twenty-Six, but the good old clairvoyant never misrepresents. Page Fifty three ,W H.

"Oh! Jane, I'm so glad you moved next door. Won't we have good times, though?" cried Ann enthusiastically. "Of course, we'll have a splendid time," answered Jane. "Let's start get- ting really acquainted right now. Tell me all about your school, especially the Junior class, because next year I'll be in it with you. The girls seated themselves comfortably in the big chairs near the win- dow and Ann began. "There is quite a bit to tell about my class, Jane. There were almost two hundred of us poor, scared freshmen who came to school September 3, 1923 to get our program cards. You should have seen us trying to find our class rooms and our lockers. Such a scramble as there was! We held our first class meeting the latter part of September and chose John, Cave president, Ted Martz, Vice-president, and Charles Keaton, secretary. Our advisor was Miss Harris. In October a get-acquainted party was given in the gymnasium. The rest of our freshman year was uneventful. The next year our class was reorganized with Ted Martz as president, Gaythor Rutherford, vice-president, Gladys Wood, secretary, Wayland Fly, council member, and Miss Jonah and Miss Steel, advisors. School was very much as it had been the previous year except our party was a Hallowe'en masquerade which resulted in much merriment. We were proud of the girls in the May Festival. Mary Adolyn Epler was chosen May Queen and Naomi Sechrest and Elizabeth Smith were two of her maids of honor. The Junior class really began to distinguish itself the third year. Emmit Wilson was elected preisdent, Miles Beishline,vice-president, Evelyn Davis, secretary, and Eleanor Richardson and Thurston Kern, council members. The advisors were Miss Steele and Miss Denton. Many of the boys went out for football, basketball, and track. We were well represented in all clubs, the oper- etta, and other plays. Two juniors were members of the Orange and Black staff. Five of the twelve debaters were juniors. The class, play, "The Charm School," was a brilliant success. The annual Junior-Senior reception which we had looked forward to for such a long time was quite up to the standard set by preceding classes. We're expecting even better things to happen next year." "Oh ! breathed Jane, "I'll be so glad when school begins next fall." -Betty Farthing '27. "1-'fi '- wv.. , Page Seventy mne Page Eighty 4 Sophomore Class Historq As the sun sank over the horizon on a November day in nineteen thirty- eight, a tall, grave looking man mused before the crackling tire. As the flames leaped and glowed he seemed to see faces of old chums and scenes of other days. "What a good scout Jim was! That old team we had in those days. Wonder where Nina Savage is now? I used to think she was quite 'coy' with her fluffy hair." "Gee Daddy, what's this?" broke in on his reveries. And five year old Jimmie-named for his old pal-struggled beneath a book almost as large as himself. "Why, son, where did this come from ?" "I was just 'venturing in 'de attic, and this dropped on my toe. Has pretty pitchures in it. See Daddy," opening the book. "Wonder who this big man is with the funny hat?" "Well, that's old Louie, who played half-back on the championship foot- ball team. That was certainly a great year-we were Sophomores then." "What were you then, Daddy ?" "Oh, I did various things," replied Gene, for 'twas none other than Eugene Wood, himself. "When we had entered the High School as funny, green, little Freshies, we had to have a president, of course, for our class, so we elected Max Moss. Jo Alice Sikorski wrote our minutes for us since she was the secretary, and I did nothing but look wise because I was only vice president. Our party was a sort of track meet between four colleges: Pla- More, Do-Little, Dun-More, and Hard-Knox." "Didn't you do nothing else but have parties and meetings Daddy ?" said Jimmie. "Well, I should hope so. We worked all year on our basketball team and I did my best to teach those boys how to play basketball, but we didn't Win very much." "How long did you have to be a Freshie ?" "My Freshman year is only a slight remembrance to me, but I remember how the second year, in spite of the fact that some of the old crowd were gone, we wanted to elect our class officers right away. Kermit Chase and Reuel Crews were the leaders, Jo Alice wrote so nicely that we gave her the minute book again. Since we had grown out of the Freshie stage, we were committed one council member, and I felt 'quite the man' to be going to the council." "They couldn't run the class without you, could they Daddy?" "Everyone who didn't get an oiiice tried to carry off intellectual honors, or sing the "stellar role' in the operetta, play the biggest horn in the band, or make a championship team." The flames were growing dimmer and in them Gene saw a vision of the Sophomore "Hi-Jinks Masquerade Party." "So you see, son, High School was just about the best place on earth in those days. I often think about Moore's bit of Verse: 'Oft in the stilly night Ere Slumber's chain has bound me, Fond memory brings the light Of other days around me.' Of course, lad, you don't understand it now, but some day you'll know." -Lorraine Bolen '28.

' 'ffg P age Eighty-fifue Page Eighty-.fix A Freshmen meclleq It was about eleven o'clock one night when my son and I made prepara- tions to explore the Krieckhaus in hopes of finding my daughter, Burnette, who had mysteriously disappeared many Somers before. We started, after I had told my son of the Wells and of the one in particular, the Boswell. We had traveled only a short distance when my son said, "Look at Draper, what Mader do that?" I looked at Draper, who was our dog, and re- plied, "John-son, we are on the Wright track. Draper has a keen sense of smell. Comeg we must not Terry." We hurried on, but before we reached our destination we came to a Cave. It had begun to rain, and so we cou1dn't de-Klein the Cave's shelter. We built a fire and soon felt Dyer. Although we felt very Savage we continued our journey. It was now mid- night and too dark to go on without my Ford. I returned for it. We came to the steep hill and my son said, "Willis ford carry us both up this hill?" ' "It Wil-son," I calmly answered, because I had faith in my Ford. We made good time and arrived at the house with everything all right, with the exception of the Pate on my carg it was practically ruined. Upon entering the house we heard men's voices coming from the adjoining room. This is what we heard: "She thinks Mabry she can get free. We had better Thatcher, Tyler, Anslinger out' the Winder into the creek. Of course there's no hurry about itg we can do it in our Leasure time. She sure is Liebengood. She is so fat we can scarcely Heidlerf' We listened for no more but broke the door down, and John grabbed Burnette while I got the Durkee and locked the kidnappers in. When we arrived home my daughter told me how Rough the outlaws were, with the exception of one man. My daughter said, "Will-is a good man and did many things to-Ward freeing me, but they were in vain." We are a happy family now, and we hope that Plaesser will forever dwell in our household. -Audrey Ferguson. , ,-,. 5... ..

During this time the executive committee, the High School Council, has plan- ned many of the outside activities, and is always ready to pro- mote any enterprise which will benefit the League. The council has established a better understanding between the faculty and the student body, and in various ways has proved its worth to the school. The president of the council is Mr. Echols. The other mem- bers are: two faculty advisors, the president and secretary of each of the classes, two seniors, two juniors, and one sophomore.

Its success is largely due to the capable director, Miss Florence Lyon. It is well ac- companied by Eleanor Richardson. The club proved its worth by successful appearances at Homecoming and the Farmers' Institute, and by its capable work in this years' operetta, "Rings in the Sawdustf' for which it furnished the fine male choruses and nearly all the male principals.

The most important function of the orchestra is to furnish music for the public entertainments at the school. This it does in a most enjoyable and entertaining manner. Much of the success of the present orchestra is due to the ability of the director, Miss Florence Lyon.

Y ii? '5f5liirf Band The High School Band of 1926 is an organization of which this school is justly proud. Its somewhat small size, twenty-four pieces, is atoned for by the excellent balance of the instruments and the talent of the players. Its success is due in a great measure to the fine direction of Mr. J. W. Chadwick. The band has been one of the ibest influences for enthusiasm in the school. At the "pep" meetings and games it has done much to build up the Mt. Vernon spirit. Band muisc is a feature of nearly all the home basket- ball and football games. This year, for the first time, the band has a drum major, in the very capable person ofqJoe Rainey, who struts and turns and twirls his baton in approved drum major style.

H ' Pl li omecommq au M H The homecoming play of this year was the dramatization of, "When the Chimes Rang" an old Christmas story with which every one was familiar. The beautiful unselfishness of Holgar, contrasted with the greediness of W Stein and the great reward that Holgar obtained by staying behind to care M for the old woman, is a story which will always be a favorite. lil The people of the cast portrayed their parts so vividly that the audience jll was carried back to the days of peasantry and forgot that they were only M witnessing a play. T Among the things that contributed to the success of the play were light- all ing effects and the beautiful music. They imparted a spirit of reverence to I the whole production and aided in making it one of the most notable dramatic Q achievements in the history of the school. .li . gi Junior Class Pic-111 my The class of '27 presented as its play "The Charm School" by Alice Duer Miller and Robert Milton. It was a pleasing comedy full of amusing situa- tions. A young automobile salesman inherited a girl's boarding school and attempted to conduct it according to his own ideas. Many amusing things mil happened during his experiment and in the end he fell in love with the president of the Senior class and by so doing he was forced to forfeit the pos- session of the school. Each member of the cast played his part exceptionally well and the play imp was a success in every way. il Wa. 11762, " "'?Z"'L , Yf'ji,i,, ::f??zl'zf-,35f12giZff+,i't:5E35,,-2335 Page Ninety-eight The Drama Club of 1925-26, under the direction of Miss Boyd and Miss Jonah, has been one of the most successful ever conducted. The club of this year contained 96 members 433 Juniors and 63 Seniorsj and was divided into five groups-one meeting each day of the week. The first semester was de- voted to the study of famous plays and actors, and during the second semester each club-member presented a play, showing in this way what had been learned the first semester. Page Ninety-nine Expression Club One of the most interesting and useful clubs in the school is the expres- sion club. The primary purpose of this club is, of course, to train one to be at ease on the platform when speaking to an audience. There are twenty- seven members in this club, and all enjoy the work and will appreciate its value later in life. The initial work of the club was an etiquette playlet by each member. This was for the purpose of introducing them to public speaking and to break the first shyness. After this they felt more capable of going on with the regular club work. One reading, at least, is required of each pupil. He is critized by his audience as to posture and deliverance. The sponsor, Miss Boyd, gives talks on the essentials of good speaking, and the pupils are taught how to stand, breathe, and to put the proper stress in the proper place. They must learn to use good language and to express themselves well. . To cultivate the latter accomplishments the pupils are each to write an original short story and an original play. They will, of course, appreciate this work and enjoy it. It is hard, but some real talent along these lines may be discovered. The quality of these works will be judged by the plot, des- cription, characters and dialogue. Each member has to tell an original story, also. Miss Marykate Boyd is the regular teacher of the club. She directs the pupils in speaking, standing and other necessary elements in public speaking. Miss Eleanor Bly is to have charge of the intensive training for the intellec- tual meet in the spring at Carbondale. With these two capable directors the success of the club is assured. The pupils are interested, and there is con- siderable talent in the class. This kind of work is deservedly popular. A " "fill- Payf Onf Hundred Journalism Club The journalism club was started four years ago under the supervision of Miss Ida Bond and Miss Eugenia Moss. Its purpose was to encourage those wishing to display their journalistic ability and to improve the "Orange and Black" by round-table discussion. It has grown every year until it is one of the most popular clubs. The editor-in-chief, Merle Shoop, has charge of the meetings, and Mr. Lloyd Dewitt is the faculty sponsor. Each member of the club must be a subscriber to the "Orange and Black." Every one has some club or department or some news to write up as his regular assignment. He is to do this as ordinary work in order to get his credit. As other works, to get credit, each member must write a feature story, an editorial, and a game of basket-ball or some sporting event. This is to give him experience in the diiferent kinds of newspaper writing. The good work promises to continue with the present talent contained in the club. Page One Hundred One l The Debate Club There are thirty-five students taking debate work, this is a good show- ing for a club where the work is hard-a showing which speaks well for the mentality and energy of the pupils of the Mt. Vernon Township High School. In this club one learns to speak clearly and in a connected manner, he loses his self-consciousness and is at ease before an audience. He learns never to say anything without first being able to bring positive proof to its support. Each pupil must participate in at least one debate, for which he must collect evidence from authoritative sources. Each must take part in floor drill, such as extemporaneous speaking, presiding at the meeting, pronun- ciation and enunciation of words. and drills to attain good floor posture. Furthermore, each member is made to feel his responsibility for the success of the team, and each helps in finding and collecting material for it. Heretofore there have been only two teams, one aflirmative and one negative team, with three people to each side and two alternatives, who, in case of emergency must step in and take a debater's place, oftentimes on short notice. To eliminate this difficulty, this year there has been formed a debating squad, an arrangement which assures two teams for each side of the question. The second team must work along with the first in preparing speeches, so that there will be no danger of losing a debate because of hasty preparation by a substitute. Miss Lollar, the coach and director of the club, speaks very highly of this year's club. All the members have done their best from clipping to typing, so that the coach says that the support is the best she has ever seen. Page One Hundred Tfwo Left to right: Vermadel Wood, Dorothy Smithpeters, Miles Beishline, Runyon Irvin, Theresa Stephenson, Alvin Lacey Williams Our Dc-:bale Team Our debate team this year is all new except one member, and though he is counted as somewhat of a veteran, he has never appeared in an inter- school debate. The affirmative team, all new, consists of Runyon Irvin, Dorothy Smithpeters, and Theresa Stephenson. The negative team has the experienced member, Alvin Lacey Williams, the other two members are Miles Beishline, and Vermadel Wood. Theresa or "Tot" is always correct, she always has something up her sleeve and will have the last word. Runyon is the worker of the team, he is steady, serious, and is always hunting material for his debate. As for "Dot," she is sweet and persuasive, and always tries to charm her hearers. Vermadel is convincing and quietly shrewd and is always on the lookout for some flaw in her opponent's speech. Miles may not look it, but he is quite savageg he tears his opponent's arguments to pieces, then throws them out and stamps on them. Alvin would always be agreeable and calm, even if he should forget his speech, and all the arguments for his side, although there's little danger of his doing so. The question, one of the biggest of the year is: "Resolved, That the national defense should be organized under three separate departments- army, navy, and air." Since it has been so much before the public, it is doubly interesting as a debate question.

Its purpose, as stated in the constitution drawn up by a committee of fourteen early in the year, is to promote character, friendship, courtesy, pleasure and success among the girls. At the election of oiiicers November 2, excitement ran high. The following girls were elected: President, Theresa Stephenson, Vice-president, Helen Bakery Financial Secretary, Margaret Ruth Eplerg Secretary, Evelyn Davis. Miss Cornelia Pierce who is actively interested in every school affair and does every thing in her power to promote the general welfare of the school is Dean of girls. Her untiring work with the Hi-Tri merits a great deal of praise, and the girls realize their good fortune in having her valuable services and assistance. There are 21 small groups of the organization. These are organized with a chairman, financial secretary, and secretary. They meet bi-weekly and have very interesting programs. The members of the Hi-Tri League have accomplished a great deal this year. Louise Wood and Edna Rice were selected as yell leaders, and a pep club was organized during the football season. A very effective pep demon- stration was given at the Salem-Mt. Vernon game. At Christmas time the girls distributed dolls to children of poor families in town. Many of the girls observed specific training rules and were admitted to membership in the Illinois Girls' Athletic Association. The ladder is the emblem of the League, the five rounds representing character, friendship, courtesy, pleeasure and success. The Hi-Tri poem is: "Success is not reached at a single bound But we build the ladder by which we rise From the lawly earth to the vaulted skies, And mount to its summit round by round."

The following year Mr. Anderson came into the school as Agriculture instructor, and relieved Mr. Brock, who was more interested in the teaching of Chemistry. At present, the officers are: Henry Marlow, president, Weldon Locey, vice-president, and Earl Simmons, secretary. The club now has forty mem- bers. The boys have become more interested with the fine showing that has been made, and now the club is represented at the judging contests held for students of Vocational Agriculture. A team was entered in the Southern Illinois Judging Contest held at Carbondale, Illinois, in the spring of 1925, and it came out Victorious. A large banner, a silver circulating loving cup, and several ribbons were won. The members of this team were: Henry Marlow, Weldon Locey, and Edwin Grant. Another team of five members was entered in the State Judging Contest at Urbana in June 1925. Although this team did not win, it made creditable ranking. Another reason that the club has aroused interest among the boys is the "Father and Son" banquet held each year for the fathers of the boys enrolled in the agrilculture department. The expense of this banquet, as well as a part of the cost of the Urbana trip, is met by the club.

However, the appearance of Miss Alberta Peaches and Miss Ima Lemon brought the poor judges back to normal, and these two received the radish leaves along with other prizes as tribute to their beauty. Miss Peaches was awarded first place and received a combination kinkless hair pin and belt buckle. Miss Lemon was given second place and received a color sketch showing the Seven Ages of a Lip Stick. Miss Peaches possesses that rare type of beauty which has the power to make one think of his past sins and wonder if indeed she is the avenging angel come to guide him to his future home. Study the truly bovine expres- sion of the beautiful eyes. This fair daughter of Eve is addicted to the use of Aroma of Cabbage. As a result of this habit she exudes a faint fragrance of this delightful perfume which at once calls up memories of Joe's Quick Lunch counter. Miss Lemon, second prize winner is indeed a fitting companion for the peerless Miss Peaches. Truly she is a pearl among women. Observe the unsophisticated look in her limpid eyes. Where, oh where, Death, is thy sting, if in death this angel might escort one to Heaven? Notice the friendly and sympathetic look on the face of the lady of the upper left, which shows that she too has suffered the attack of sore corns. Examine closely the alabaster features of the little maid, first row second from the left. Does not the welcoming smile about the perfect lips warm the cockles of your heart? The lady of the first row third from the left wears that haughty look which betokens truly aristocratic blue blood and a family tree dating back to the time of Noah and the Ark. Who would deny that the curly locks of the lady of the upper right makes her seem truly an angel from the land of Jove? Notice the cement brow which gives a look of delicacy to the face. Examine the coy expression of the face of the lassie of the second row first from the left. Does she not indeed possess that rare type of beauty one reads about but seldom sees in real life? The serious straightforward, trustful look on the face of the maiden, second row right truly makes one think of his mother and the day she'-'came after him with pa's razor strap and fire in her eye. 'ti The lass in the lower left indeed is a type by herself. Where else'c'an, one find such a stout chin on such a countenance of strength and beauty. The peppy little lass the second from the left lower, would truly make a pal for anyone. Observe the snappy and enthusiastic expression of the eyes. The lady of the lower left third, has that dreamy expression found only on the face of a bovine who has feasted long on his master's garden and is sure that retribution will miss him. Who can resist the appeal of those come hither eyes possessed by the girl in the lower right? She is truly a big reason why men leave home and their mother's apron strings. Page One Hundred Nzne ..

During his four years as head of Orange and Black Basketball squad Mt. Vernon, has won two district tourna- ments, and placed second in a sectional. Twice during his career as coach Mr. Ross has taken an Orange and Black representation to the Mississippi Valley Tournament. The tirst time winning second place and the last time finishing as a runner up. Up to this year Mt. Vernon had not been represented on the football field since about iifteen years ago. Coach Ross took a squad of green men and made a team that went through the season undefeated and won the Big Four Conference. Boys who have worked under Mr. Ross in athletics have only the highest praise to offer as the genial well linked coach was a favorite from the start. This accounts for the hearty cooperation which is always shown to him. The teams put out by Mr. Ross are worthy foes of the best and the Orange and Black quintets always win a majority of the games. Those who have worked under Mr. Ross will regret to leave, as anyone appreciates a square shooting man such as he is. -H M1555 , 'I .N - "S,-igifl Page One Hundred Fourteen Buren Ellis N Football CAPT.

He passed, punted and ran with equal facility. Dashing, dodging, and squirming, he eluded tacklers and skirted ends for handsome gains. More than once his punts put the Orange and Black Line out of danger. This was "Dutch's" last year and he will leave a place hard to till by an underclassman. Basketball CAPT.

He also made the sectional All-Star Team in '25. This is Whitey's last year in school and his superb record at forward and as a captain will be hard to equal. oel Moore Track HAROLD MILLER-Track Captain-1926 In track work more depends on the individual than in teamwork such as is necessary in basketball. So being the captain of a track team carries more of an honor for service to the school on the field than anything else. Harold Miller who was elected trac ever since his first year in high school. During his sophomore and junior years Harold made twenty six points, placing in the pole vault in every meet in which he was entered and winning first place at both dual meets with Centralia and also first place at the trian- gular meet with Benton and Herrin. k captain for this year has been on the track squad Page One Hundred Fzfteen '2'FiFiNUif2 fs fa., V U uf? 111 sl z ug fl. gl 1 MILLER-Tackle and End A fierce tackler and a fast end.

Vernon High School-the advent of football and the arousing of student pep that has slumbered for some twenty-odd years. Coach Howard Ross assumed charge of a bunch of about thirty-five fellows who had never played football before, and undertook the tedious work of whipping into shape a winning combina- tion. The attitude of straight-from-the-shoulder, man-to-man direct dealings inaugurated by the coach met with instant and hearty approval from the team and student body. If one bases conclusions on actual recorded scores the season was a crushing march to victory. Four games won, three of them shutouts, and not a game lost is the record of Mt. Vernon Township High. The Orange and Black warriors won every game, and a fighting spirit was developed which bids fair to accomplish equal things in 1926. When Mt. Vernon journeyed to Carlyle they defeated that school 26-0. Throgmorton made two touchdowns, Wood and Jones one apiece. Ellis kicked two try-for-point goals for two points. Centralia was the next victim. Mt. Vernon on Armistice day defeated her 25-13. Doxsie made two touchdowns, and Moore two. A pass from Ellis to Moore netted Mt. Vernon an additional point. Salem was defeated 39-0 on November 14. Although the field was muddy, Mt. Vernon's backfleld and ends got away for good gains. Touchdowns were made by Throgmorton QU, Moore QU, Ellis Q4j. Ellis made 3 points to try- for-point goals after touchdowns. Centralia came down on Thanksgiving to get revenge, but went home with the small end of an 18-0 score. Ellis, Moore, and Boster made touch- downs in this game. The last touchdown was made after Miller had blocked a punt behind the Centralia goal line. The field was a sea of mud, and the players were covered with it. Fast going was impossible, and super football had to be played by the team to win. Some 2500 people stood in mud over their shoes and watched perhaps the hardest fought football game they had ever seen. Comments from both sides were unanimous in two respects: Mt. Vernon outplayed her old rival, Centralia, and closed the season without a defeat. Page One Hundred Nzneteen I IA E C V. l II .M 1926 VERNOIS .gil-fjfi-:ss::i.Ee, II I,I III III I EI I 'IA ES!

Vernon beat DuQuoin in first game of the season by a score of 14-10. The next team to meet its Waterloo was Salem, 29-10. The Benton game at Benton was lost in a very exciting and close contest, the score being 16-14. Mt. Vernon next beat Opdyke, 17-11. After leading Marion, 12-2 at the end of the first half, Mt. Vernon lost in the five minute overtime period, 20-18. The Homecoming game this year was lost to West Frankfort, 10-8. The Shelbyville game was a walk-away for our boys, the score being 33-11. Next, Mt. Vernon more than evened the score with Benton by beating her 33-4. Then came the Centralia game which was a great battle, Mt. Vernon was victor, 21-18. The score was also evened by beating the strong Marion five, 22-8, on the home floor. The DuQuoin game there was won easier than was expected, 27-16. Mt. Vernon was avenged by beating West Frankfort 27-18 on their home floor. The fast Kinmundy five was the next to fall before Mt. Vernon's team, 19-15. The Centralia five fought their best but proved that they were no match for the Orange and Black speedsters. The Urbana team was destined to be swept on its feet by Mt. Vernon, 33-25. Shelbyville was forced to take the small end of the score again, at the rate of 31-15. Opdyke fought bravely but she also fell before the Orange and Black Cyclone, 29-11. After a bad start, Mt. Vernon beat Salem 30-13 in her last schedule of the season. r me -feawfg-ff-QL- 1 ,-1sL.,1-,,a:iE.s. .saa .sr , Page One Hundred T-'wenty thru Class Basketball Class Basketball has been played in Mt. Vernon High School for the last six or eight years. Although many boys like to play basketball, if they do not make the squad it used to be impossible for them to participate in that branch of athletics. But under the present arrangement the individual classes have ample time for practice and give exhibition games each Friday night before the regular squad games. If in the course of the year, the basketball coach desires to have new material for his squad, the best can be suggested by the class coaches who are usually first string men. Mt. Vernon is always in the final games as far as basketball is concerned probably because of the fact that so many take an interest in basketball, both class and varsity. A classman always has the chance of taking a place on the first squad because of the illness of one of the membersg so keeping in condition by playing on the class teams is a great advantage to boys interested in the sport. The juniors have the best record this year, having suffered only one de- feat and having won four games. Loren Highsmith is the junior coach and Emmit Wilson is the captain. Sophomores are second, winning three games and losing only one. Gene Wood is their coach and Bobby Crosnoe captain. The stately seniors lost two games and won three. Glen Throgmorton is the senior coach and Ernest Standerfer is captain. The freshmen, not used to having such a big place to play in, could not get enough points to beat any of the other classes, although they had a good little team. Lester Ford is their coach and "Chuck" Winder captain. f -- v . . . ...,,.:V. Page One Hundred Tfwenty-four Track Track as well as football had been discontinued at Mt. Vernon since about 1915 until in 1923 when entries were sent to three meets without achieving any notable results. The track team, led by John Payne, in 1924- 1925 won several points in the distance runs and in the pole vault. This year Mt. Vernon is fortunate in having in school two top-notch pole vaulters who should split first and second honors at every meet. They are Capt. Harold Miller and Loren Highsmith. The first event to take place this year will be the annual road race be- tween Centralia and Mt. Vernon. Following this there will be a triangular meet with Marion and West Frankfort on April 24. The dual meet with Cen- tralia will be held there. Another triangular meet has been arranged with two southern schools before the big sectional meet which will be held for the purpose of selecting those who go to the state meet. Under this year's program Mt. Vernon should win honors as she has done in football and basketball. Mr. Skinner is coach again this year, and since he is familiar with most of the men he has to work with he should turn out one of the most successful track teams that the Orange and Black was ever represented by on the field.
