This was the day we started our journey through high school. The fourteen bustling pas- sengers all had accomodations in the Pullman Coach Car. We experienced some difficulty in this car but we realize now that our experiences there are invaluable in making present situations more clear. The passengers chosen to be be leaders this trip were: Donald Gerrond, President, Shirley Bennett, Vice Presidentg Barbara Mercer, Secre- tary, John Stewart, Treasurer, Barbara McKie and Neil Burnett, Booster Clubg and James Ver- bout, Reporter. There were many interesting passengers aboard and we became acquainted with one pas- senger of wide agricultural experiences and an- other who enjoyed teaching the wonders of Mathematics and Science. We found clubs, sports and activities to make the journey more enjoyable. We were guests at the Initiation Party and hosts at the alentine Party. Pleasant times pass quickly, and before we knew it, vacation was starting. The summer soon passed and once more we were boarding the train. This year we were "old handst' and had no trouble finding our way around. We quickly elected officers and settled down to enjoy our trip. This year's officers- James Verbout, Presidentg Beulah Christiansen, Vice President, Bernice Christiansen, Secretary, Shirley Bennett and Wendell Yepsen, Booster Club, and Janis Bigham, Reporter-led us in our many activities. On this trip it was our privilege to be in- timately associated with a celebrated sportsman. We took from him a more profound concept of the term. He was deeply interested in history: his understanding of the world problems, both past and present, gave us a clear idea of our re- sponsibilities as citizens. On this trip, we initiated the newcomers aboard for the first time. We enjoyed our journey, so twelve of us reserved tickets in advance for the third excur- This page spo11s01'ed by. .. sion, which was sheduled to start September, 1950. We, when the date arrived, elected Shirley, Wendell, Barbara, James, Janis, and Donnie for our leaders. Bernice was elected to help cheer our team, the Zephyrs, onward. We remember meeting a shrewd business man who took a great deal of time explaining the elements of business law and related subjects, and there was also a cultured gentleman, who in- stilled in us an ease in language arts, which. undoubtedly, will remain with us. Moneymaking, the Prom, and other activities kept us occupied during this excursion. Three years of our journey had passed before we knew it, we were nearing our destination- the jumping off point. This year's officers were Barbara Mercer, President, Maurice Yepsen, Vice President, Bernice Christiansen, Secretary- Treasurerg Beulah Christiansen and Wendell Yepsen, Booster Club, and Shirley Bennett, Re- porter. Beulah and Bernice Christiansen were elected cheerleaders. We were also honored by having Bernice Christiansen and Donald Ger- rond chosen Homecoming King and Queen. Among the interesting passengers aboard this year was a young lady whom we met in the Diner, she gave us some valuable tips on cooking and home arts. We also met an interesting man who was interested in teaching our generation to appreciate fine music. The Zephyr has been an experience, the worth of which cannot be estimated immediately, but long after we travelers have separated, we, in- dividually, can reflect and realize that what We have accomplished is due, in part, to the exper- iences shared on our memorable trip on the Ne- ponset Zephyr. A trip such as we have had, associations such as we have made, observations we have exper- ienced, sportsmanship we have witnessed, can- not help but be beneficial to us in our fixture relationships and in our future travel through life. . . . .Quickie Sales, Sheffield, Illinois f ' lm - ...THE ZEPHYR I I Q of -'-STATEROOM PASSENGERS - ' ' , if , W ' U Mfrw fog, f n Lgernice Christiansen Beulah Chri tia se , 1' Offices: Offices: Luft!!

Wendell will be an author so true, While Beulah still likes something borrowed and blue. Now here at last to our classmate, old Maurice, Whatever we'll do, he'll be there pulling for us. He'll probably teach English at good N. H. S., How he'll use pronouns is anyone's guess. Now Barbara Mercer, our class president, She's tried for a man so hard that she's bent, Barb will marry a preacher, I guess, Don't worry, she'll have her chance to say, "Yes". Here we are to our own Willis Woody He'll be a farmer so loving and good. He says if his livestock are sick in the head, He won't call a doctor, he'll shoot them instead.. Neil Burnett it's a problem to say, He may make music but probably hay. Bernice, oh Bernice, all the boys are afraid, Will end up a widow with all of them daid, But we'll not feel sorry for this Widow's grey hair, For her husband, you see, was a big millionaire. Jim Verbout, who tries for every teacher, Will surely grow up to be a preacher, Jim as a preacher is a pain in the neck, But it rhymed, that's what matters, and so what the heck. Janis, our nurse, really wants that profession, But here to you all make a confession, What she actually wants is really a mate, 'Cause real sick men don't usually date. Oh, she'1l get married and forever they'll roam, But soon she'll find out that "it just ain't like home." Last on the list is Shirley, our friend, She'll be your pal until the end. Shirley, who's been on a farm all her life, Will stay there and be a farmers Wife. This page sponsored by. . . . .Singer Sewing Machine Company, Kewanec, Illinois .1 21 ' .fi 5-1 Ill ' llll . . .

Ammon, Instructor 3: MATHEMATICS "The invention and discovery of symbols is doubtless by far the greatest single event in the history of man. Without them no intellectual advance is possible." To make possible continued intellectual advance and to develop the proper appreciation of the intellectual progress made by man from the beginning of time to the present is one of the primary ob- jectives of all teaching, but more especially is this true of the teaching of mathematics. Mathematics is the "Key" that unlocks all sorts of closed doors, and the more highly polished the "Key" the more doors it will unlock. SCIENCE "Science is organized knowledge." According to this definition then all branches of knowledge are sciences. Attitudes and habits of thinking will promote man's propgress best when they have been developed in a carefully organized factual manner. Knowledge of physical and biological facts are best understood and practiced by those whose minds are con- trolled by scientific thinking and attitudes based on scientific faces. The above are some of the purposes of all science programs. Tlazs page sponsored Ivy. . . ....... Larson's jewelry Store, Kewanee, Illinois 26 E.

Q ---LoUNGE--- CMUSIC DEPARTMENTJ Mr. Skwierawski, Instructor 3: In accordance with the generally accepted objectives of music edu- cation the music program at Neponset High was directed at providing each student with musical experience and training commensurate with his or her interests and capacities. Secure in the belief that if only the right contacts and experiences are provided, every life can find in music some answer to its fundamental need for aesthetic and emotional outlet. It was for this reason that the Christmas program, one of the musical highlights of the school year, presented an imposing list of soloists in its major work. Rather than restrict the solo work to the customary chosen few, every student who volunteered was accorded an opportunity. Another highlight of the musical season, the District Solo and En- semble Contests at Morris, on March 15, again illustrated the philosophy that music in a democracy must provide every child with equal oppor- tunity. Each student who desired was allowed to compete, although of course, here participation was limited by the restrictions imposed by the State Music Association. However Neponset provided the surprisingly large number of twenty-one entires in the Contests. Without recourse to selectivity on the basis of ability, the results of the competition were grati- fying. Neponset scored two first places, or superior winners, ten second, excellent, seven third, good, two fourth, fair, and no fifth, poor. The Neponset High School Band, aided by the the more experienced grade school music students, participated in the Band Contests at Morris on April 5. The High School Mixed Chorus, and the girls chorus also com- peted. Tbzs page sponsored by. . . ...... . . .Allen's Dairy, Kewanee, Illinois 44 95.

Q - - - SIDE LINERS ' ' - 5: F. F. A. Throughout the year, the Future Farmer members took part in a variety of activities that teach leadership, cooperation, better farming, and better living. The major activity is operation of a seven acre farm which has been done for three years. It is divided into three fields of corn, oats, and legumes, which are rotated each year. Members learn cropping parctices and management in this project and also earn money for the chapter. All expenses are paid for, except the use of the machinery, which is donated by parents. Profit is used to purchase shop tools and finance chapter activities. Our chapter was chosen state winner at the state F.F.A. convention in farm safety activities for the second straight year. The Chapter was awarded S100 which was used toward purchasing the tractor. Our Chapter placed third in the section program of work contest and also third in the section soil conservation contest. John Swearingen, Ken Stabler, Neil Burnett, George Ouart, and Bob Carlson attended the Illinois State F.F.A. convention at Champaign. While visiting the University, they participated in the fat stock, and dairy judg- ing contest. They placed second and third. Glenn Ouart was awarded the State Farmer Degree at the convention. During August, John Swearingen, Ken Stabler, Bob Carlson, Les Girven, George Ouart, and Richard Daniels accompanied Mr. Luther to the Illinois State Fair. They took the truck and camped out on the fair grounds. Tlazs page sponsored by .... ..... B rackens Floor Covering, Kewanee, Illinois 50 fri ....

The Freshmen put on a cowboy skit entitled "The Rustling of Two Heifers". John Bates placed first and Thelbert Thompson placed third in the Pioneer corn growing contest. Ten other Chapter members grew corn for the contest. John Bates was chosen the Dekalb leadership winner for "52". The F.F.A. officers attended the Section HI banquet at Geneseo on March 4th. p To help finance our activities we sponsored a paper drive, turkey raffle, and plowed gardens for the people of the village. During the year, we had several dinners. In October, we entertained the parents at a Pot-Luck dinner and program. In January, we held an all school chili luncheon and noon program.

Lack of experience was bolstered by a determination to win that enabled the Zephyrs to finish the season with five wins and four defeats. The season was opened with the Buda Bears on their field in a contest that the critics predicted would be a toss up, and that is just what it was. However, due to some good running by Verbout and Swearingen, and alert pass defense against Buda's vaunted passing attack, and super- ior blocking and tackling by the entire Zephyr squad resulted in a very pleasing 18-13 victory for the Zephyrites. The opposition for the opening home game was supplied by the LaMoille Lions. Although the 1950 runner-ups in Conference play were considerably weakened by graduation, they were able to put a fast scrappy team on the field, and were able to draw first blood on a 17 yard scoring pass, but once the Zephyrs got rolling they were invincible. Some fine open field running by Swearingen and Verbout, the accurate passing of Burnett, the pass receiving of Gerrond, and the excellent all around play of the rest of the squad gave the home team a well deserved 39-18 victory. The third straight victory was won on the home field and the Malden team were the victims. Malden's weight advantage could not match the speed, hard running, and deception of the lighter Zephyrs. Swearingen, Verbout, and Gerrond furnished the scoring punch in this game, but the final 38-18 victory was an entire team effort. The Zephyrs traveled to Ohio for the fourth game of the season and at the final gun the score was 20-12 in favor of the ultimate Conference Champions. The game was hard fought.

The surplus man power of the opposition turned the tide in their favor. The superior ground game of the Zephyrs enabled them to roll to a 38-0 victory over Bureau Township. The elusive running of Verbout en- abled him to scamper for a total of 30 points. Swearingen got away for one touchdown. The extra points were garnered by the same two boys. The Neponset line held the Bureau ground attack to a mere 75 yards. Unable to hold a 7-6 lead which prevailed at the start of the fourth quarter, the Zephyrs suffered defeat by a strong Tiskilwa squad 19-7 . The N eponset team was never able to muster a sustained running attack and were held to a meager 100 yard gain on the ground, 60 yards of which came on Swearingen's touchdown run. This loss dimmed all our hopes for a share in the Conference Championship. Against Sheffield the Zephyrs saw a 13-7 half time lead fade into a last half 33-13 victory for the Cardinals. Injuries to key Neponset line- men were an important factor in the second half collapse of the Neponset squad. Bates and Swearingen accounted for our two touchdowns. Handicapped by bitter cold the Zephyrs managed a 12-6 Homecoming victory over a scrappy Wyanet team. Gerrond scored early on a 52 yard pass play with Burnett doing the pitching. Minutes later, Swearingen broke loose on a 60 yard run, and with this Neponset was through for the day. Wyanet's lone touchdown came late in the second period. Neither team scored in the last half. On a sloppy field the Zephyrs scored two first period touchdowns against the Manlius Red Devils, and then faded before the powerful attack of Hewitt and company to fall 45-12. Swearingen on a short running play and Carlson on a 28 yard pass provided the only scoring punches for the Zephyrs. Tbzs page sponsored by .... ....
