The name of this empire seems to have been lost but its memory lingers. On the following pages you Will find a purely imaginary conception of this kingdom as it once might have been. We trust you will use your imagination to fill in the "missing links" and become so lost in the story that it will almost seem to be a reality! -The Staff. Any resemblance of the characters in this book io living people is purely co-incidental. -THE EDITORS.

At the present writing they are Earl Ellis, president, Orville Young, secretary, Louis Brick, Ev- erett Brown, and Walter Bingarnan. ' These men are the "men behind the scenes" at N. T. H. S. They see to it that teachers are hired and the school is conducted in accordance with set regulations. The responsibilities and Work these men have undertaken is rarely taken into consideration by the students themselves. However, we wish to dedicate this space in our '48 Tomahawk to the Board of Directors as a tribute and expression of gratitude for what they have done for N. T. H. S.

This is a traditional practice and the High Court has attempted to produce a book worthy of a kingdom so noted and thriving as ours. To raise funds We sponsored the annual Homecoming, a carnival, a magazine-selling campaign, and a dramatic production entitled, "One Delirious Night." We wish to express our sincere thanks to all those who assisted us in publishing this annual: local merchants, supporters, friends, and members of the Lower Courts.

Of the thirty-six that entered, twenty-three have emerged triumphant. Along the road of learn- ing we lost the following: Imogene Jones, Dolores Lane, Thelma Cordes, Deloris Wright, Bill Woods, Jessie True, Dale Patrick, and Arline Smith. Six of our classmates transferred to other schools. These are: Dorothy Dewar, Charles Miller, Betty Parker, Leonard McKinney, Norma Jean Valkinburg, and Loella Hill. We have also added several members to our class. They are: Betty Walk, James Buchanan, Francis Wassom, and James Meek. The business of our senior year has been very successfully and effi- ciently handled by Floyd Wente, president, John Dollar, vice-president, Betty Worland, secretary-treasurer, Judy Green and John Wente, student council members, and Mr. Shields as faculty sponsor. The four years of our stay at N. T. H. S. have been highlighted by many memorable and enjoyable activities: How could we forget the Prom of 1947 when the study hall was trans- formed into a beautiful "Old Dutch Garden" complete with wishing-well, dikes, tulips and an old Dutch windmill? As juniors we also presented very successfully "The Charming In- truder," a three-act comedy. At the Homecoming dance this year, the king and queen were both seniors, Judy Green and James Buchanan. Senior attendants were Bonnie Baker, Carl Brady, and Lawrence Fox. The class has had a lot of fun and also work financing the Tomahawk with a carnival, a magazine-selling campaign and by selling ads. As a climax of the four years spent at Neoga High, the seniors pre- sented the three-act comedy, "One Delirious Night," under the direction of Mr. Shields. Upon graduating May 28, the Senior Class of '48 will go forth to make use of the knowledge and training gained from their high school years. These have been profitable years to be cherished and remembered always.

Thirty-six of us were then enrolled, Thirty-six for assiduous instructors to scold, Some gave up the ghost, some moved away Till now but twenty-three are in the fold. Our studies have been a grueling climb From the frequency of sound to Shakespeare sublime. We've studied hard that here might we be For the broadcast of "N, T. H. S. Diploma Time." Out of the classroom our life has been gay. We twenty-three are funny that way, There's always a word of cheer and a To keep us happy through the day. Down the course till the race is done, Over the hurdles to the very last one, smile . We've had our pleasure, we've studied hard, And soon we will find our victlry won. The students in our group I now present, On gaining knowledge all are bent. Yes, all are bent and some 'most broken So oft' from classroom to office sent. Lloyd Kingery, Warren, and Lloyd Blair, Carl, and Francis, and Dollar were there, Lawrence, Judy, Earl, and Morris, Bonnie, Margie, and Wanda fair. James Hartke, James Meek, and James B. Were like Betty Walk, Betty Huff, and Betty Worland, you see. John Wente, Ruth, Floyd, and Don Were members of the jolly twenty-three.

So I set my Super Sonic Eight down on the beach. As soon as the plane stopped rolling Don Kraft and Floyd Wente came running up to the ship. It seems that Don, with Floyd as photographer, had been sailing to Hawaii to engi- neer the building of an atomic plant. But the ship had run into a radio- active cloud and they had been forced to abandon it. So I rocketed them back to the States where they reported to the proper authorities. On finishing that task we went to the Local Hotspot, where Lawrence Fox and his band were playing. At the Hotspot we ran into Admiral Dol- lar, so we sat down and talked over old times. When the waitress came over, we saw that she was none other than Marge Zimmer. She said that she was now married to the owner of the Hotspot, Lloyd Blair. When Floyd remarked how good the food was, she said it had been prepared by their own chef, Warren Baker, and that the meat had been purchased from the Hatten Meat Packing Co., owned by Earl. Marge asked us if we were going to stay for the floor show. She said that the star was the one and only Wanda South. I told her that I was very sorry but as it was get- ting late we must go. As we drove back to the terminal we turned on the television radio and heard the "Three Bets" present their program. As they came into focus on the screen, we saw that they were Bet Worland, Bet Huff, and Bet Walk, accompanied by Lloyd Kingery at the piano. Just then we arrived at the terminal in time to see John Wente and James Hartke servicing my plane. Don went in to buy the tickets and when he returned he said that Ruth Anderson was phone operator at the ter- minal. Just then the loudspeaker announced that the plane for Washington was leaving in two minutes. So Don and Floyd said goodbye and climbed into the ship. As I was driving back to my hotel I turned on the radio and heard Francis Wassom on his new radio show, "Can You Top This?" Just then I heard a scream of rubber tires, followed by a thunderous crash. Two vehicles had collided. One was a car and the other a bus loaded with boys. I ran over to the wreck, where a middle aged man was running around checking on all of the boys. The man was no other than Coach Carl Brady from Yale. It seems Brady's university had chartered a bus to take the football squad to Purdue where they were to play Coach Jim Buchananis team. The manager of the team was the only one who was hurt. Just then there was a wail of a siren as an ambulance skidded around the corner. The driver was none other than Morris Strohl, who had gained his driving ability from driving a "cycle" at N. T. H. S. The doctor was Dr. Jim Meek, who was accompanying the ambulance. While Dr. Meek was checking the patients to see that there were no further in- juries, I asked Morris if he knew the whereabouts of any of his classmates. He told me that Bonnie Baker and Judy Green were both working in the office of the Hospital as typists. Thus hearing all the tales of the class- mates of '48 and also ending a hectic day, I returned to my hotel. TOMAHAWK THE LOWER CUURTS FIRST RANK SUBJECTS SECOND RANK SUBJECTS THE KING S FOOLS N gT hpHghSh TOMAHAWK RECORD OF FIRST RANK SUBJECTS The doors swing in and the doors swing put, but this Junior Class boasts a fine record of starting the school year with thirty-six members and keeping this number throughout the year. The officers responsible for this class are Gib Kingery as president, Carl Scoleshvice-president, Jean- ine Brown, secretary-treasurer, and Thelma Beals and Gene Fox as student council members. Mrs. Bell has been the class sponsor behind these officers. You have witnessed the Junior Class behind many social events at NTHS this year. Among these are the Prom, Junior Class play, and their support was also behind the seniors in the presentation of the Carnival. The class is proud of their boys that make up the athletic teams. They have been well represented in all sports. Of the sixteen boys, ten of them were represented on the basketball team and of those six remaining, one was a manager. The basketball team was the champion of the school as a result of the tournament. Not overlooking the girls, they have been equally successful in their undertakings. Members of the Junior Class can be found in every school organization. They have contributed greatly to their treasury with their sales at basketball games, and participated in the marching band, as well as the Octet and Mixed Chorus. We are proud to consider ourselves as the Class of '49 and are equally proud of the records we are setting in our wake as 'we go through the por- tals of NTHS.

TOMAHAWK RECORD OF THE KING'S FOOLS The "freshies" this year elected Bill Wente, president, Charles Roy, vice-president, Don Stewart, secretary, Keith Myers and Donald Sanders, student council members. The freshman girls didn't have a chance in the elections. They were too divided in voting, but the boys "stuck together." The initiation party was held in the study hall on September 26, at 7:30 P. M. Harsh sentences were passed on the freshmen by the jury, but the faculty had a crooked lawyer and were let off easy. The girls took active part in their noon basketball and volleyball tour- naments. The boys turned out lively for basketball and other sports. QA mighty good-looking bunch, if I say so myselfj Mary Ellen Abel helped lead cheers at the basketball games. She and Earl Price were onthe attendant list at the Carnival: Mary Ellen, first at- tendant and Earl, fourth attendant. A number of the boys show signs of real basketball ability. Members of the class were also active in GAA, FFA, FHA, Red Peppers, Chorus and Band. Lastly, I want to hand it to the teachers-for it takes a lot of courage to stay with such a howling, rough, and hard-to-bluff bunch of freshmen!

Mr. Hance: What did he do? Mr. Leming: I caught him count- ing his ribs. "Oh! the living room and the bed- room are just wonderful," she gush- ed, "and the bathroom is simply out of this world." One of her friends piped up, "Isn't that a little bit inconvenient?" One of two women riding on a bus suddenly realized she hadnlt paid her fare. "I'll go right up and pay it," she declared. "Why bother?" her friend replied. "You got away with it, didn't you?" "I've found that honesty pays," the other said virtuously, and went up front to pay the driver. "See, I told you that honesty pays," she said when she returned. "I handed the driver a quarter and he gave me change for fifty cents." Mother-Betty, look in the paper and see what it says about the weather tomorrow. Betty-I guess they haven't de- cided yet. The paper says, weather unsettled." Did you hear about the fellow who stayed up all night trying to figure out where the sun went when it went down? Finally it dawned on him. Freshman: "Hey! You can't take that girl home. She is the reason I came to the party." Senior: "Sorry, song you've lost your reason." Your mind is truly a wonderful thing. It starts Working the minute you get up, and never stops until you get to school. Soph: "You ought to take chloro- form." Frosh: "Yeh? Who teaches it?" A telephone operator in a Mid- western city answered an agitated signaling from a pay station and a tearful feminine voice: "Operator, can I have my nickel back? Albert won't speak to me?" "Now, my son," asked the consci- entious father, "Why did I punish you?" "That,s it, you pound the life out of me and then try to find out why." Does that new girl friend of yours have much to say? No, but that don't keep her from talking. Jim: "I shall never marry until I find a girl who is my direct oppo- site." Judy: "Well, there are a number of intelligent girls in this neighbor- hood." Shirley: "I'm a neighbor of yours now: I live just across the river." Miss Balch: "Well, well, I do hope you drop in some day." Miss Week married Mr. Day. The local paper reported the event in these words: A Week is lost, a Day is gained, But time should not complain, For soon there will be Days enough To make a Week again. If you perchance Don't like the bit That's fillin' up this place, Remember that A paper's queer With lots of empty space. .4 TOMAHJQLWK ELECTIVES OF THE KING'S FOOLS MOST POPULAR ,............... . ...................

As is tra- ditional, the Indians played a tough basketball game against Teutopolis before the dance. Although we didn't win the coveted wooden shoe, the dance proved to be a very gala affair. The assembly was decorated in accordance with the theme, "Winter Wonderland." Bob Douthit and his Orchestra played in front of a snow scene backdrop and the throne was on a huge snow drift. Snowy trees, a drop ceiling, wreaths in the windows, and a jolly snow-man helped com- plete the effect. A The coronation was held promptly at 10:00 P. M. The King and Queen of 1946, Jack Ellis and Lucille Fox, were present to place the 1947 crowns on King Jim Buchanan and Queen Judy Green. The attendants were: Bon- nie Baker and Carl Brady, first, Janet Green and Lawrence Fox, second, Betty Walk and Carl Scoles, third, Eleanor Louthan and Gilbert Kingery, fourth. Charlotte Greeson and Charles Leming preceded the procession throwing confetti, and Donald and Donna Lane followed, carrying the crowns on royal pillows. The Homecoming is one of the highlights at NTHS sponsored by the Seniors, enjoyed by all, and remembered with pleasure. Neoga Township High School - 'X 'roMA1-IAWK BASKETBALL A large number of boys turned out for basketball this past season. The Indians started out with a series of heart-breaking defeats but rallied up before the season was over. Their first victory was won at the Neoga Holi- day Tournament in our gym. As a result of this victory, they received a third place trophy. The Indians played in three tournaments: the Neoga Holiday Tourna- ment, the National Trail Conference Tourney at Beecher City, and the Regional Tourney in Effingham. The Indians lost to St. Anthony but de- feated Toledo in the first of these contests. They lost both to Altamont and Stewardson in the NTC tourney, and lost to Effingham in the Regional. The boys were coached by Loren E. Taylor, new here this year. They chose Jim Buchanan as their captain. At the close of the season, the boys were honored at three banquets. Mr. Moomaw, the regular bus driver, sponsored a feast in Neoga. The sec- ond "big feed" was the traditional National Trail Banquet in Teutopolis. The third and last banquet was our own here in the gym. The Pinckney- ville coach, Mr. Merrill "Duster" Thomas, gave a highly interesting talk about the making of a warrior. He brought three champion Pinckneyville players with him, who also said a few words. Mr. Shields served as toast- master. Captain Buchanan and Big Chief Mr. Hance also spoke on the pro- gram. Varsity, second team, and cheerleading letters were awarded by Coach Taylor. To Carl Brady he awarded both the Most Valuable Player trophy and the Free Throw trophy.

TOMAHA-WE BASKETBALL BOYS JIM BUCHANAN-"Buck," captain of the squad, was an able leader, and possessed of those qualities which make for good leadership. His aggres- sive play was an inspiration to his teammates, and those long shots bor- dered on the sensational. c CARL BRADY-Carl was the high scorer for the Indians this season and was a contributing factor in most of the victories. Carl not only had a dead eye for the basket but was also a good guard. The loss of him next season will be a great one. GIB KINGERY-Gib proved his worth as a guard this year. His assign- ment was to take the opponent's high scorer anddiold him. A junior this year, Gib will be returning next year for a successful season. He was al- ways on the move and most of his points were driving through the center. DEAN GORDON-Playing the pivot position on offense, the team worked their plays around him. A good rebounder and his consistent scoring al- ways kept the Indians in the ball game. Also a junior, he will be returning to next year's squad. ' KENNETH WOLF-"Fuzz," as the team called him, pulled many a ball game out of the bag. Tall, with long arms, he was a great rebounder and always seemed to find the hoop. Coming along rather slowly at the first of the season, he saw a lot of action always. CARL SCOLES-Carl, together with Gib, worked the guard position well, and also at times moved to the pivot position. A badly sprained ankle slowed him at the end of the season, but next year, his presence will be a great value to the squad. RICHARD KEPP-Small in stature, but plenty of scrap, and a good eye for the basket from near the free throw circle. Being a junior, Kepp is one for an optimistic View on next year's season. JOHN WENTE-"I-Ieinie" has a million dollar smile, but in addition he also had a good knowledge of basketball. Due to the lack of previous ex- perience, he was handicapped at the start of the season, but improved as the season progressed. "Heinie" is a Senior. JAMES HARTKE-"Sophie" probably improved more than any player during the season, and at the close could rebound with the best of them. Being a Senior, we can only, imagine what a ball player he would have been with four years experience. JOHN DOLLAR-John at times was the spark plug of the team, and with his aggressive dribbling, gave the needed speed, to combat a pressing defense. Being a Senior, those left-handed shots and passes will be missed next year. Q Neoga Township High Sachpol H C:.1:I1. 'x Gwinn, " "Cy 0 K r wana Q . A- X .

Each team played 10 games-two against every team. The home games were held at the park and the entire student body was permitted to attend. A bus was hired to transport the team to out-of-town games and the extra seats were filled by students. These games provided for fall sports and were followed with interest. Baseball games were resumed in the spring under a similar program.

He was also a good defensive player. BOB PRICE. Held down the second base position. Bob also was fast on his feet and could cover a lot of territory-both defensively and at the bat. JIM HARTKE. Proved a very capable shortstop. Jim was able to scoop up hard hit ground balls near him. GIB KINGERY. Hard hitting third baseman. Gib was one of the leaders in hitting percentage. Gib was also a good defensive player. He had a good arm and could whip the ball to first base with ease. CARL BRADY. Regular catcher. "Cy" proved to be one of the most valuable men on the field. Besides catching he did some pitching. Brady was the other leader in batting and was dangerous with the bat. CARL SCOLES. Played center field and Was a good man in the out- field. Carl had a good outfield arm and could cover lots of territory. He should be a regular on next year's team. Neoga Township High School , TOMAHAWK DEAN GORDON. Fast on his feet and his ability to judge fly balls kept Dean valuable on defense. Dean was a good hitter, also, coming through in the clutches. JOHN DOLLAR. Played right field for the Indians last season. Dollar was left handed and used his left arm to a great advantage. John also was fast and covered plenty of ground. JIM BUCHANAN. Our regular pitcher this season. "Buck" developed into a very good hurler. He is very fast on the bases and very dangerous with the bat. KEITH MYERS. Did some catching while Brady was on the mound. With Brady leaving this year Keith will take over the catching chores. DWIGHT EVANS. Played in the outfield and Was fast on his feet. "Spike" has possibilities of developing into a good ball player. KENNETH WOLF. "Fuzz" played in the outfield for the Indians. With some training Wolf could be a powerful hitter. DON STEWART. Has great possibilities of making a good shortstop or infielder. Don played a few games at shortstop this season. CHEERLEADERS The Neoga Indians were faithfully supported this year by the "Red Peppers" and five "live wire" cheerleaders. An election for cheerleaders was held in the fall and the outcome was two boys: Dwight CSpikeJ Evans and Roth Iler, and three girls: Eleanor Louthan, Mary Ellen Abel, and Wanda South. Eleanor was a cheerleader in ,47 and upon being re-elected took up the task of teaching four new recruits. It appears she was successful because all five did an excellent job. They not only did a fine job of leading cheers, but they made a flashy picture in their new uniforms. The girls wore red wool jumpers with white blouses, tights, and red hair-bands with their names on them. The boys wore gray pants with a red stripe down the side, white shirts, red hats, and red bow ties.

All those interested met in the gym and chose the following officers: Judy Green, president, Betty Huff, vice-president, and Betty Walk, secretary. The name "Red Peppers" was chosen for the club and hats were sent for with NTHS on them for identification. The hats were late arriving but the Red Peppers have had a very good cheering section at all game for the Neoga Indians. We had meetings in the gym before big games for pep talks, yells, and to inspire the Indians to fight for victory. The membership of the club includes almost the entire student body as the picture at the right shows. G. A. A. The Girls' Athletic Association boasts of forty members this year. They elected the following officers: Wanda South, president, Betty Huff, vice- presidentg Sara Abel, secretary, and Betty Worland, treasurer. Mrs. Bell acted as sponsor. The purpose of the G. A.

The letters FFA stand for a national organization which reaches out to all the states in the United States. In this organization the true viewpoint of the farm member or "the backbone of the organization" is the motto, which is: Learning to do Doing to learn Earning to Live Living to Serve This organization is truly for farm boys who expect and have an inter- est in farm life. The members elect officers each year to run the organiza- tion. The national emblem of the Future Farmers of America is significant and meaning in every detail. Used by all units of the organization, it is made up of five symbols: the owl, the plow, the rising sun, within the cross section of an ear of corn, which is surmounted by the American Eagle. Upon the face of the emblem appear also the words "Vocational Agriculture" and the letters FFA.

TOMAHAWK THE MUSIC DEPARTMENT With the coming of Miss Cathcart, who teaches music in both grade and high schools, the music department of NTHS has seen much improve- ment this year. The band has come up and is increasing. A good many students have purchased instruments and are taking lessons preparatory to playing in the regular band. Although regular chorus Work has not been in our school system for several years, the choruses this year have given some admirable per- formances. Within the next few years, Neoga Township High School should be profiting highly from the musical foundation which has been laid this year. I I 1 MIXED CHORUS The boys, and girls' choruses combined to make up the 74 voice mixed chorus. The members made a very striking appearance in their formal dress at the Community Sing, the Spring Concert, and Baccalaureate, the boys in White shirts, dark ties and dark trousers, and the girls in white blouses, dark skirts, and dark string ties. Neoga Township High School . TOMAHAW-If GIRLS' CHORUS Last fall, Miss Cathcart tested all the girls' voices. From these she se- lected about forty girls to form a three-part chorus of altos, second so- pranos, and first sopranos. This group had regular practices on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the music room. The chorus combined with the boys' chorus to sing carols at the Community Sing on December 22, a number of selections at the Spring Concert on April 16, and Baccalaureate on May 23. lst Row-Miss Cathcart, Mary Ellen Abel, Marjorie Zimmer, Wanda South, Sylve Michlig, Bonnie Baker, Donna Beals, Pat Bushur, Ann Sny- der, Doris Icenogle.

'EOMAHAWK MUSIC PROJECTS Under the Direction of Miss Caihcari The Community Sing- On Sunday, December 22, a large crowd gathered in the gym to partici- pate in a Christmas Community Sing. Besides listening to numbers sung by the choruses, the octet, and Miss Cathcart, the audience joined in sing- ing many old familiar carols. The evening- proved very successful and enjoyable. Affairs of this kind tend to draw the community closer together. May this community sing become a tradition in Neoga! The Spring Concert- On April 16, the members of mixed chorus, band, and octet presented a musical program in the gym. This presentation represented the fruits of the past year's work done in the music department of NTHS. It was an admirable performance and real proof that regular practice always bears fruit. BAND The school year of '47-'48 has been the first year for a long period of time that NTHS has been blessed with a full-time music instructor. Miss Cathcart came to our school and found practically nothing, but in a short time the music program began to flourish. The high school band is one typical example. The band made its first appearance on December 12 at the Beecher City game. A week later, at Homecoming, the band made a triumphal entry into the gym between the games, decked out in new uniforms, and made a good showing in their marching, formations, and snappy music. From Homecoming on through the rest of the basketball season the band appeared at every home game, always with a new formation and a new number or two. On April 16 the band performed at a well-attended music concert held in the high school gym. The money raised at this concert was used to help finance the music department. By basketball time next year our band will have grown in size through the promotions in our large corps of beginners. With the experience of this year at school and the weekly band concerts which the band will play throughout the summer months, the Neoga High School band should really be something for our school to be proud of by next year.

This ensemble first learned some Southern melodies which they sang at a teachers' meeting in Neoga. The octet made its first public appearance between the second and third acts of the Junior Class Play. They also sang at the Community Sing, the Carnival, the Spring Concert, and several times before the student body. On April 3, the octet journeyed to Bridgeport to enter the sectional district mixed ensemble contest under Class D. They sang "Cheribium Song" and "Steal Away" and received a Division II rating. The certificate received will be framed and placed in the trophy case. This mixed ensemble has an excellent blend of voices. The members have practiced regularly throughout the year and know a number of un- usual arrangements of familiar songs.

In order to avoid this and still receive the inheritances, Dick and Pat suddenly develop phobias. To further complicate matters, the household also harbors four schemers, all interested in securing the famous heirloom emerald necklace, and a quack doctor who shows up to cure the phobias. However, at long last, the criminals are brought to justice, Pat and Dick fall in love, and the curtain closes on a happy household.

People lnationsl of the past showing greatest respect for their dead, seem always to have been the leaders in all other fields, too. Today, our beloved U. S. A. is far ahead of all other peoples in applied Mortuary Science and Practice, in keeping with our leadership in every other field of human advance and human economy. England's greatest national economist, Gladstone, said: "Show me the manner in which a nation or a community cares for its dead and I will measure with mathematical ex- actness the tender sympathies of its people, their respect for the laws of the land, and their loyalty to high ideals."
