DEWEY CONNOR, JR.
As trumpets blast the tempest past
Oh rolling drums good by
Bless they that broke the path
The road for you and I
Let your soul repeat the past
Those happy days no more
And walk with me as man to man
Till we meet on the other shore
Four years the fire has burned
To hold our class together
I wonder as It burns so low tonight
If it will burn forever
Tis like the setting sun
As it fades into the west
Shall it revive forever
To rise among the blest?
Shall we look into the future
And predict the failing light
Immortal souls shall live forever
Lest our spirits die tonight
Oh there shall be rejoicing
As the closing hours draw nigh
Twill be a blessing earned
Though we hate to say good by
You can hear the organ chanting
As the choir so softly sings
Yet there seems to be a longmg
And within my heart it r ngs
Even though you re lconored
Don t seal your fate with pen
Reach out for higher honors
Be a man to govern men

The Juniors are a funny lot
They like it cold they like it hot
And even when it rams
They like winter they like summer
They also like the fall
But when it comes to choosing
Its spring the best of all
They dont mind what the weather is
Or what the time of year
They have their fun and laughter
Without one bit of fear
The have their u and downs ou bet
Y P Y
But we dont bet we know
For them time has no medium
Its either fast or slow
They dont know where they re going
And when they
just what and
get there heaven knows
where they ll be
The Juniors are
They think they know it all
The short and fat and dumpy
The skmny lean and tall
a funny lot
But some day soon I hope to say
That they will grown up be
With better ears to hear with
And eyes with which to see
A silent tongue within thelr mouth
A clean and able mind
And the sooner that day comes to us
The better for mankind
With all their growing pains? But they'll get there, wait and see, ,

We, the class of '42, entered Newton Community High School in the fall of
1938 for our four years of training.
We were ably guided through our first year by our sponsor, Miss Jacobs, as-
sisted by the following class officers' President Virginia Ann Graham' Vice Presi
dent Victor Klbler Secretary james Rubsam Treasurer Billy Edwin
After a three months Vacation we an eager and ambitious group of sixty six
students returned for our second year of training In September we elected Mr
Johnson as class sponsor William Lobmier Lon Cleaver and Glen Bussard were
chosen as class officers for the year
A class party held on February 19 featured pmg pong and dancing as the
chief entertainment A scavenger hunt was held after the party
We were well represented in extra curricular act1v1t1es as a glance down the
l1st of clubs shows the sophomores represented in the French Club Home Econom
lcs GAA Athletics and other school organizations The personnel of the band
also contains many members of our class The fact that we averaged about sixteen
names on the honor roll each term proves that we were equally interested in scholas
Havmg completed two years of our training we hope to finish our remaining
years in such a way that Newton Community High School may well be proud of the
class of 1942

We were green, last year, and new
Were the things we've learned to dog
We've remembered, never fear,
All the things we learned last year.
On the freshmen we've been tough,
Maybe made their going roughg
We'd forgotten, never fear,
We were freshie "green" last year.
Last year's "cloud" has passed us by
We see now a clearer sky
Last years n1t1at1on fear
Left when we began th1s year
We know more this year than last:
Now our "verdant" stage is past,
Dignified we've learned to beg
Wiser now, by far, are we.
Sophomores, let us be proud-
We can speak our rank aloud
Without those who've heard and seen-
Running off--and yelling "green."
just a sophomore am I-
And my freshmen year s gone by
Please don t thlnk the sophs to blame
If I do not sign my name

This year the Camera Club was organized according to the rules and regulations specified by
the Eastman Kodak Company, which has a school camera club service. The objectives of the club
were to foster interest in photography among the students and facultyg to provide them with a
useful as well as interesting extra-curricular activity: to promote exchange of ideas, exhibitions of
photographs, and contests, and to help improve the photographic work of the individual members
and finally, to provide a means of keeping a permanent record of student and faculty activities,
sports, etc. The officers of the club were: President, Paul Jean Reepg Vice-President, Harold Webb:
Secretary, Fuller Franke: and Treasurer, Scott Ross. The club met every Wednesday during activ-
ity hour and at that time heard interesting lectures on photography. The club became associated
with the Camera Club Service of the Eastman Kodak Company, which sent out four interesting lec-
tures with slides to accompany each on the fundamentals of photography. The senior members of the
club did the photographic work for the annual and enjoyed this type of work very much. During
the year several contests were sponsored by the club to keep interest up and also to give the mem-
bcrs a chance to obtain a prize for the best picture obtained during the contest.
Photography is an excellent means of developing the capacities of the individual through an
activity so absorbing that it may be regarded as re creation. It draws upon many different Fields of
knowledge, encourages intelligent observation and deduction, and provided a means of self expres-
sion which, in some form or other appears later in every personality. The study of photography of-
fers an excellent method of introducing simple and practical applications of certain theoretical stud-
ies in chemistry and physics in a way which holds the interest of the student and tends to encour-
age further investigations. As an introduction to physics, it may be used to illustrate the principles of
reflection and refraction, the properties of lenses ani the formation of images, and many other things.

"Je declare que la seance est ouverts." With these words President Juanita
Kibler has called to order the meetings of the French Club. The club is composed

At our First meetings, the members learned how to conduct the meetings in
French with the l'appel Croll callb, and le proces verbal Cthe minutesj being read

having th highest score on our test.

Silent Night Joy to the World, and other songs in French A report about the
French customs at Christmas was given by Eileen McCormack
A very interesting report was given by Marjory Kinsel about the Mardi Gras
Later we had reports of the well known French authors by members ot the club
To symbolize their membership the members voted to buy little pins the shape
of the fleur de lis the national emblem wlth Le Cercle Francais engraved upon
On Thursday May 2 the members went to Champaign to a French movie
Obus de Confiance starring our French actress Danielle Darrieux It was very
interesting not only because it was

The Hobby Club is organized for boys who are taking shop work or who
have completed a minimum of one year of shop. This year's enrollment was
85, an increase of 10 over last year's group.
The club met for work during the activity period four days a week
with twenty to twenty-live boys working each day. Electricity, woodwork,
metal work, archery, and models were the most popular hobbies.
Two social events were held, an initiation party in the fall, and a river
party in the spring. This year for initiation the boys had to wear wooden
ties and also had to carry corn cobs in their pockets.
The Archery Tourney created a lot of interest with about twenty-five
boys taking part. A trophy was given to the winner of the event.
The club attended the 1940 Electrical Engineering Show at the Uni-
versity of Illinois on March 29, and found it very interesting.
The officers elected for this year were Harold Webb, Presidentg Richard
Worcester, Vice-Presidentg and James Laugel, Secretary-Treasurer. Mr.
Young was the sponsor.

Eleven students participated in debate throughout the season, and eight joined
the squad late in the season. Only two members of the squad were seniors-Bessie
Clark and Vera Foltz. Richard Worthey, also a senior, has finished his second year
as secretary of the debate squad. Eileen McCormack and Genevieve Harris were
junior members. The freshman class contributed fifteen members. Of that group
George Bevis, Bob Worcester, Robert Hubbard, Bill Cantwell, Glenn Sunderland,
Loren Poe, and Duane Sims participated all year. During the latter part of the
season eight more freshmen joined the squad. They were: Margaret Tobias, Mar-
guerite Faller, Betty Chaney, Ruth Youngman, Norma Short, Mary Jackson, Mary
Beth Fleld, and Charles Wooden
Although Eileen McCormack was the only member of the squad that had one
full year of debate experience previous to this season many others displayed a great
deal of talent Bessie Clark who Joined the squad late in the season last year has
developed into an accomplished debater
Eileen McCormack the only member of last years varsity squad to return
this year greatly improved her good technique of last year Bevis and Worce ter
both freshmen earned a berth on the varsity squad this year and promise to be
outstandlng debaters Among the highlights of the seasons schedule were the
Chicago trip of November 1n which our debaters met teams from Northern Illinois
Indiana Wisconsrn Iowa and Michigan In December we had our own invitational
tourney attended by one hundred twenty debaters and coaches In the same month
we attended a tourney at Vandalia During January we journeyed to Olney to a
tourney and in February to Charleston March was highlighted by a 500 mile
Journey through central and northern Illinois The State District and League con
tests were held in April
Probably the outstanding event of the school y ar insofar as debaters and
speech students are concerned was the acceptance of Newton Community Schools
application for membership in the National Forensic League The N F L mem
bership is limited to 500 high schools in the United States and its possessions
Newtons admission is distinctly an honor to the school In addition to being an
honorary organization the League also performs several very worthwhlle service
to member schools and students For example it provldes free of charge to mem
ber schools varlous kinds of speech materials it provides district regional and
national tournaments to provide competition and exp rience for students of member
schools It provides distinctive pins and medals for worthy speech students Further
more when a student who has been an N F L member in high school enter
college the National Office of the League sends a letter of recommendation to the
administration of the college the student plans to attend
The 1nd1v1dual membership in the National Forensic League are divided into
four degrees The first degree as that of Merit second is the Degree of Honor
third the Degree of Excellence fourth and highest the Degree of Distinction Of
the students and alumnae of N C H S eleven have qualified for the various degrees
of membership Emma Allce Adkins and Doris Watkins members of last years
varsity team have qualified as alumnae members with the Degree of Distinction
Bessie Clark and Eileen McCormack at the end of their second year of speech
work have qualified for the Degree of Excellence Genevieve Harris George Bevis
Robert Worcester and Robert Hubbard have qualified for the Degree of Honor
while Vera Foltz Glen Sunderland Loren Poe and Bill Cantwell earned the Degree

The Dramatics Club began its activities this year under the sponsorship of
Miss Gene Harney. We had forty members who elected the following officers: Jean
Laugel, Presidentg John Schuch, Vice-President: and Juanita Kibler, Secretary-
Treasurer. Our regular Thursday activity hour programs were full of interesting
and amusing skits, talks, and demonstrations given by club members.
At Hallowe'en, we sponsored an all school masked party. We gave a Leap
Year Party on March 18. The big event of the year was the all school play
"Growing Pains," which we sponsored on Feb. 21. The following day we gave a
surprise party for Miss Harney in honor of her birthday and presented her with
On May 16 and 17, we completed our year's work by sponsoring the senior play,

Don't we all enjoy getting out and observing nature? Of course we do. Every-
one of us is eager to learn more about Mother Nature, and that is exactly the
reason we have developed a natural science club. It was tried out in 1939 and
was found to be very successful and interesting. Because of this, we are ad-
vancing it this year with the idea that the students will know more about nature
and develop their own initiatives.
The club consists of 21 members each of which has a project of his own to
work on Some of the students have chosen more modern projects such as the
growing of sollless garden while others are getting leaf butterfly and birds nest
collections An aquarium and terrarium are being made too along with a host of
The newly organized Student Council has progressed a great deal since its be
ginmng the latter part of last school year It is an organization of students designed
to promote the welfare of the school
The primary purpose of the council IS to advise and assist the principal and
faculty in the conduct of school affairs It supervises the bulletin board recreation
inside the building during the noon hour the book exchange and the activities
calendar It also sponsors the assembly programs given each week By far the
largest council project is the publication of the annual Newton Community High
School Handbook The Handbook is designed to acquaint new and present stu
dents and their parents with all phases of their school
The officers of the council were Wilford Pulliam President Virginia Connor

One of the most successful all school plays ever presented by the Newton
Community High School was given at the Opera House on February 21 It was
the story of the troubles of Professor and Mrs McIntyre and their adolescent son
George and daughter Terry

On October 3 of this year, a group of 74 Home Economic girls assembled at
their first meeting. The group consisted of two types of members, those who
had never taken a Home Economic subject and those who had taken a Home
Economic subject. The ones who had taken a Home Economic subject were the
only ones eligible to hold an ofiice. The following people were chosen from that
group as office holders: Catherine Dhom, President: Bessie Clark, Vice-President:
Lois Bayles, Secretary-Treasurer: Janet Ross, Publicity Chairmang Geneva Winter,
Song-Leaderg and Gertrude Doepel and Evelyn Smithenry, Program Committee.
At this meeting a general talk was given on Home Economics regarding the fees,
which were ten cents a semester, general activity, and a description of Home Ec
in the past. The club was scheduled to meet activity hour every Monday of the
first week of the month besides the night meetings.
At one of the first of these night meetings, the new members were initiated
by the old members. After the fun of feeding them "fish worms" and making them
do various other things, the more solemn part of the initiation was carried out by
the beautiful and impressive candlelight pledge service in rainbow colors. The
most interesting of the other night meetings were the Leap Year Party, to which
the F.F.A. boys were invited, and the Mother and Daughter Reception.
At some of the activity hour meetings, interesting talks were given on the
care of the hair and nails, and actual demonstration of the use of cosmetics was
shown to us. The style shows were something which all of us valued too, because
in these we were shown the proper types of clothing to wear for different occasions
and the kinds of clothing worn in different countries.

N C H S BASKETBALL
When the first call for basketball players was lssued about 30 eager boys
responded After two weeks of hard practlce Coach Fox emerged with the fol
lowing lmeup composed of three lettermen Roberts Bussard and Spencer and Jones
Wickham and Dufram from last years second team
This year s schedule was one of the most hazardous met by a Newton team for
many seasons It consisted of the mighty Tigers of Paris and other outstanding
teams such as Flat Rock Oblong Carbondale and Casey whlch helped contrlbute
to our falrly poor showlng
Consxdermg the quallty of the maternal and competltlon we had a season as
good as could be expected At txmes we played l1ke champions and other times
l1ke the underdogs that we were 1n most games Probably our best game was
agamst Flat Rock although we were defeated 30 to 28 We also showed our
true selves m the blmd tourney at Greenup where we were defeated IH the Bnals
bv Greenup after defeatlng Toledo in the first round The boys turned ln several
other good performances agamst Charleston T C Westfield Toledo Martmsvxlle
Co Captains Bussard and Spencer and Roberts and Wlckham all from the start
mg five are senlors and w1ll be hard to replace next year However the return
of several good underclassmen brightens our hopes for a successful season Jones
and Dufram are the only two remaining lettermen but Glenn Bussard Bower Sny
d r Resch McCormick and Slms are all back from the second team

Robinson 35 T
WAYNE JONES Joness helght and
accurate one handed shots made him a
valuable asset to this years team
Wavne IS only a sophomore and should
lead next years squad in scorlng He
scored 89 pomts m his first year of
DUFRAIN Fuzzy made up for hlS
lack of height by speed and fight Hav
mg one more year of competltnon he
should develop into a good ball player
Hls ab1l1tv to hit long shots brought
him 84 pomts this year
SPENCER Shooting IS his speclalty
and more than once h1s graceful one
handed shots kept us m the running
Co Captaln for the past two seasons
he ably led forth regardless of odds and
seemed to play best under pressure He
w1ll be consplcuous bv his absence next
season Tom collected 151 pomts ln the
BUSSARD A leadlng scorer for the
Eagles this past season Max will be
greatly missed as next season rolls
around Co Captam for the past two
seasons he has been a leader and a
staunch believer of the never say dle
Splflt He bore the brunt of the at
tack and at least twice durlng the sea
son brought us from behlnd to Wln
Max scored 190 counters thls season
WICKHAM Art came to us from
Dundas and made the startmg team
hls first year at Newton Hrs helght
made him valuable as a rebounder and
guard Many were the opponents whom
Art held scoreless while he contrib
uted 43 pomts to the teams total
ROBERTS After getting off to a slow
start Chick became one of the best
and most accurate rebounders on the
squad Chlck alternated as guard and
center and capably held down both posx
tlons He also added 33 pomts to hls
record We all hate to see Chlek

Illmoxs has ln recent years been growmg ln 1mportance as an Oll pro
ducmg state In 1936 Illmoxs ranked fourteenth among the o1l producmg
states , lt IS now thlrd among the states
Durxng the last two years there has been a great mcrease m drxllmg
for o1l and gas ln Il11no1s In 1935 there were but 34 o1l and gas wells
completed ln th1s state ln 1936 92 wells were completed In 1938 there
were 974 wells completed
Wlth the mcreased act1v1ty ln 011 development ln Illmoxs the questlon
has arisen as to the need of leglslatlon to regulate this new mdustry and to
conserve th1s natural resource At present the proved reserves of o1l recover
able by usual methods of productlon are estlmated to be about 13 b1ll1on
barrels These would last approximately 15 years at the 1933 rate of con
sumptlon A shortage durmg the commg 15 year perlod can be prevented
only by dlscovery of new fields
The first produc1ng well 1n jasper County was drllled on the Warren
land south of Newton The well was a gusher, and the 011 shot out of the
ground The wells are much easxer drxlled nowadays Very hngh powered
dlesel engmes are used now lnstead of the old cable tool type rlg A well
can be completed nn two or three weeks
The Pure O11 Company IS the ploneer of Illlnols ln the new fields
opened up The o1l boom first started ln the region of Clsne and then Clay
C1ty and Noble Last summer development began north of Olney and has
been comlng north Last fall a new field started west of Dundas It has
been predicted that the Dundas and Boos locatlons will 10111
On the precedmg page prctures are shown of the Warren well from
the tlme lt started until o1l was struck There are pictures of dlfferent
operations and local c1t1zens looklng on
Every theatre must have a mght
watchman to see that all of the prop
ertles and stage settmgs are kept ln
thexr proper places We feel that Mr
Leeson has done hrs Job well
Wxthout a yanltor to keep
the theatre clean and rn good
order there could not be an
entxrely successful show Our
thanks to Mr Clark for dorng
a grand Job
