Above our fort's ernborttled Walls
Old GIory's folds unfurig
She's been on inspiration
To every' boy' ond girl.
As a tribute to our soldiers
Whom we never can repay
For the glorious deeds they do for us
Every single day,
We offer this, our yearbook,
In a grateful sort of Way.
As a humble dedication, i
Though we know it can't compare
With their feats on land and sea
And daring in the air,
We proffer this, our Nu-Korn-I
To all our boys out there.

For the second time in my teaching experi-
ence the world is engaged in conflict and War.
ln times like these it becomes the duty of
the schools to redouble their efforts in their at-
tempt to teach and defend the principles of de-
mocracy. We are doing and will continue to
do what we can: Red Cross Drives, Defense
Stamps, Bond Sales, Bundles for Britons, knit-
ting, sewing, conservingeall these have re-
ceived fine support from the faculty and stu-
dents of N. C. H. S.
ln the face of all these things we are mind-
ful of the fact that Education is one of the first
lines of defense, if not the first. For that reason
we remind and keep reminding the boys and
girls and their parents that education is a great-
er necessity now than at any time in the past
and that nothing should be allowed to interfere
with the training and schooling of the present
crop of boys and girls.
And in the future when this awful war has
been brought to a close and peace once more
reigns throughout the world the need for an
educated nation will be exceedingly important
in grappling with the many problems that lie
With sincere appreciation for the fine co
operation of the board of education the faculty
the students and the patrons of the school

SECRETARY OF STAFF
KATHRYN KINSEL CONNOR
No words of ours can quite convey
The thanks we'd really like to say
To Kathryn for all the thinqs she's done
Which made our school so smoothly run.
To the Board of Education, the students of N.C.H.S. feel deeply grateful. They
have done much to rnake our education, our first line of defense, possilole.

"THE MESS CALL"
ITHE FACULTY BREWJ
Since soldiers are very fond oi stew,
The faculty stirred up a motley brew,
And each one did his separate part
In making the soup a work of art.
Miss Flori supervised the mixture
So that no mischievous, pranking trickster
Would put an object ot harmtulness
Into the grand and glorious mess.
Using his rhythm stick as a spoon,
And humming a colorful marching tune,
Mr. Shimp stirred lively and long,
Keeping time to his sprightly song.
When the tire 'neath the kettle burned low,
Quick little Kathryn was there to go
Chasing over the hills and dales
After some nice dry wooden rails.
Mr. Gruenewald spun great tales
While stuffing the fire with Kathryn's rails:
Tales of the war his grandpap was in,
And how they did things way back when.
Then "Toby" and "Stew" linked arms and
And the echoes of their voices rang
And mixed with the sound of Gruenewald's
To make a very confusing noise.
But Mr. Fox and Mr. Newsom
Thought the smell of the brew was gruesome,
So they asked permission of Mr. Platz
"li they please could go and play some catch?"
And he said "Yes" and ran for the bleachers,
Therefore ignoring the rest of the teachers:
But Mr. Young caught the scent of a bet
And followed up: they may be there yet,
For one bet on Fox and one on Newsom:
And did they make a contrasting twosome
Standing out there with boiling blood,
This beanpole "Slim" and his colleague,
And the Misses Iacobs and Smith and Bayles,
The English teachers, kept hot on the trails
Of misused verbs that kept flying around:
Stamping the creatures down into the ground.
While Miss Culton sat down by the fire
And dreamed that she heard a white-robed
As she slowly walked up the aisle of the
With a rose in her hair, and her heart all "a
And Bette Bails, feeling romantic too,
Sat down by her side and stared into the brew.
Meanwhile McSwane ran around in a trot
For once, snapping pictures without using
Then Mr. Walker found Miss Burgoyne's bike:
And since she was off on a G. A. A. hike,
He pedalled around for a while all right,
But the light of the fire must have injured his
For he rode straight into the pot of brew
And spilled every drop of the tasty stewl
When I woke from my dream, I searched for
But Iohn must have cleaned it up, I guess.
VOTE OF THANKS TO MR. MCSWANE
A half a score ot years ago
There came into this high school
A new teacher, conceived in Indiana, and
Dedicated to the proposition of pounding
Mathematics into little heads.
CWe wonder how this man, or any other human,
Dedicated to such a losing proposition,
Could long endurej
But to this brave man, Mr. McSwane,
Who gives the full measure of his devotion
To this cause, and to the sponsoring
Gt our annual, We humbly express
The school will little note or long remember
What We say here,
But it can never forget what he does here.

The seniors have to leave you now,
Their time in high school is no more:
They pack their kits with some regret
To travel out its friendly door.
No matter how tough the battle,
Or how heavy their load may be:
They smile with the happy knowledge,
"That in one year more, they're free!"
Here comes Regiment '44
Well prepared for their defense.
When teachers fire their guns at them
They answer back with common sense.
These are the fresh, new volunteers
Who help fill up the vacant space
Left when Regiment '44
Deserted the post for a better place.
The flag ot orange and blue has waved
Above no truer, finer corps,
But they've a rendezvous with Life:
And they can't stay here any more.
This is the Third Division,
Almost eighty strong:
Their knapsacks bulge with courage
And their cups o'erflow with song.
They seldom ever miss their mark,
But hit the bull's eye sure and true.
They like to practice their steady aim
On the hardest tasks there are to do.
With their faces, bright and shining,
They light up the dimmest days,
And the harder the battle is to fight,
The brighter their torches blaze.

such a bore.

OUR BATTLE CRY
There beats a rhythm in the heart of every senior
Like the rhythm of a so1dier's marching feet,
And his hand and mind are drilled, prepared, and ready
To Fight! Win! Fight! Win! Beat!
Every student has to fight his private battle,
Striving day and night against the foe, Defeatg
And his sturdy captains ever goad him onward
To Fight! Win! Fight! Win! Beat!
On Commencement night we march along together,
Two by two in perfect step with ranks complete
And we know we reached this goal by resolution
To Fight! Win! Fight! Win! Beat!
Then our long hard four years' battle is completed,
And the feeling of a conqueror is sweety
So we face 1ife's battle front and keep on saying,
"We'11 Fight! Win! Fight! Win! Beatl"

We have successfully completed our training course and are now ready to take over
our individual commands. A glance over the fort records will remind you of our regi-
ln 1939, we registered as privates at Fort N. C. H. S. with some hopes and many
fears. For our commander, we elected Miss Helen Iacobs, and for officers, we elected
Virginia Ann Graham, president: Victor KiKiloler, vice-president: Iames Rubsam, secre-
tary: and Billy Ervin, treasurer.
At our monthly camp sessions, we were entertained with programs to commemor-
ate the special events of the season. The most rousing session of the year was our
Christmas celebration. We had a lighted tree in the gymnasium, and after an evening
of fun, we gathered around the tree While Santa Claus iClarence Isaac McSwanel dis-
The following year we became corporals and were commanded by Kenneth
Iohnson. Our officers were: William Lobmier, presidentp Lon Cleaver, vice-president:
and Glenn Bussard, secretary. Our main social activity was a party and scavenger
hunt held in February.
By the time our third year of training began, we were better adapted to camp life.
That year we produced a wonderful banquet. We were assisted by the following offi-
cers: Lon Cleaver, president: Ray Weber, vice-president: Irene May, secretary, and
Mary lean Warren, treasurer. Miss Bette Lou Bails was our commanding officer.
ln this, our last year at Fort N. C. H. S., we chose Delbert Young as our commander.
The officers of our company were: Ray Ochs, president: Norma Foltz, vice-president:
Lucy Hunzinger, secretary: Lon Cleaver, treasurer.
Some of the highlights of the year were: the Senior Carnival, which was a huge suc-
cess: the Senior Class Play: and the Basketball Class Tournament.
The discipline and training acquired at Fort N. C. H. S. will be of great aid to us as
We seek future positions. As We prepare to leave for our individual posts, we wish to
express our gratitude to our commanding officers and to the rest of the staff.
FIGHT, BOYS. FIGHT!
We love America
For her freedom and peace.
'Though We're fighting now,
Our democracy won't cease!
There'll be peace and happiness
When the war is o'er,
And We'll live afterward
As we have before.
The days will be brighter
As the years roll alongp
ln our minds We'll have peace:
ln our hearts a song.
We'll remember the trials,
The triumphs of today:
And the laps and the Germans
Won't be in our wayl
We'll think of the husbands
Who died in the din,
Of sons, those young boys
Who fought bravely to win.
But We'll say, "lt was worth it
Whatever the cost,
For we still have America,
And our freedom's not lost."
So fight on for Victory!
Stand up for the right!
We are all right behind you,
So fight fellows, fight!

BE STRONG-FOR AMERICA!
Our group of recruits entered Fort N. C. H. S. in the fall of 1939. We
elected the following as our leaders that year: Glenn Sunderland, president:
Betty Tate, vice-presidenty Coletta Emmerich, secretary-treasurer: and Miss
Phyllis Durnin, sponsor.
After our promotion to the ranking of corporals, we selected Stewart Wil-
liams as our commander, and as his aides, We chose lames Devore, president:
Margaret Mattingly, vice-president, and Marguerite Faller, secretary-treasurer.
Now in our third year at camp, we look forward to being hosts to the
seniors at the annual hop, the Iunior-Senior Banquet. Money is being made
to carry out these plans by selling candy and cokes here on the camp ground.
To carry out these plans, we elected George Bevis, president: Irvin Roberts,
vice-president: Norma lean Short, secretary-treasurer: and Mr. Williams, com-
Several of our ranks have bought their class rings this year.
We have held two parties: one was a chili-supper, and the other one fea-
tured dancing and games for entertainment.
WE'RE PUTTIN' ON OUR UNIFORMS
We're puttin' on our uniforms to join the fightin' ranks
We'll blow the laps to thunder: we'll man the guns and tanks.
We'll seek to do our duty wherever that may be
We're puttin' on our uniforms to defend our liberty.
And now our country calls usp We're freedom lovin' Yanks
To the last man we'll serve her in the foremost fightin' ranks.
We'll fight where duty tells usp in the air, on land, at sea
We're puttin' on our uniforms to defend democracy.
We're puttin' on our uniformsp we'll join the Marine Corps
The laps will soon be buffaloed by what We've got in store.
We'll don the Navy uniforms: we'll become fightin' gobs
The laps and lerries will find out we don't like half-finished jobs.
We'll join the U. S. Army: we'll show them we can fight
We'll do civilian defense jobs: we'll speed the airplanes flight.
We'll win or die with Uncle Sam's destiny at stake
lap and lerry treacheries are somethin' we won't take.
We're puttin' on our uniforms, We're freedom-lovin' Yanks
For now the bugle calls us to join the fightin' ranks.
We'll keep Old Glory wavin' where every eye can see
We're puttin' on our uniforms to keep our great land free.

C O R P O R A L S
We, an army of 112, marched into Camp Newton Com-
munity High School as freshmen in September, 1940, with Miss
Phyllis Dumin, as our "General" We elected the following
commanding officers: Iames Doerr, Betty Dulgar, Ernestine
Benefiel, and Bob Douthit.
Our regiment showed great interest in extra-curricular ac-
tivities, and We had a fair-sized group on the honor roll.
When the camp closed for the summer, our regiment had
reduced to 104.
After three months' furlough, we, an ambitious and eager
group of 101 soldiers, returned for our second year of training.
In September, Miss Betty Lou Bails took charge as "General"
and the following officers were chosen for the new year: Bill
Young, Clifford Dewhirst, Marilyn Matheny, and Genelle
Our annual party featured relay games, dancing, and
plenty to eat.
We sponsored the sale of football programs to swell the
funds of our treasury.
We still have a creditable number on the honor roll, and
we also furnish a number of members for the band.
Having completed two years of our training, we hope to
finish our remaining years in such a Way that Camp Newton
Community High School may Well be proud of the regiment

Imnes Wilson CPtedwCaptainl
"Bed," a four letterman at guard, was
a standout of the forward Wall this season.
As a captain, he was capable of making
decisions for the good of the team. Bed
will be greatly missed next year.
Glen Busscxrd CDognotl
"Dognot" was another of those Bussards
from West Liberty. Playing right half, he
drove hard and was a good open field
runner. Glen is cr senior.
Ray Ochs tRayl
Ochs showed that he was very success-
ful in pass receiving as Well as defensive
end. He will be hard to replace next year.
Ochs was chosen the winner of the Block

LcrDonne Mitchell llviitchelll
Mitchell, left halfback, has made a good
showing at this position. We expect that
he will either take left or right halfback.
Mitchell is a junior.

Dutch was veteran end for two seasons.
His ability to snare passes and turn in
plays was an important cog in our de-

Harold Marrs lMarrsl
Marrs could play almost any position
on the field and was a good substitute.
Harold is a senior and will be missed.
Bill Pryor tLittle Abnerl
Bill came to Newton from Dundas. His
first year out, he made first string tackle,
and opponents soon learned to avoid his
side of the line. Bill is a senior.
Leon Henderson CHendersonl
Henderson, tackle, was left over from
last year. His ability to catch men be-
hind the line made him feared by many
a line man. Henderson is a senior.
Irvin Roberts lErbl
Erb, le-ft halfback, always gives a good
account of himself for his size. We ex-
pect that he will either take left or right
halfback. Erb is a junior.
Bill Cantwell lBilll
Bill, being the largest man on the team
playing right tackle, was out most of the
season because of injuries. His size en-
abled him to crash through the opponent's
line and break up many plays. Bill is a

losses for the opponents. lessie is a jun-
ior and runner-up for captain.

Sandy, one of the biggest men on the
team, Won his letter at tackle last season.
Being changed to fullback, Sandy will be
missed very much next year.
Kenneth Brooks CKenneyl
Kenney played right guard. His de-
fensive power made him a veritable stone
wall for the opposing team. He consist-
ently opened holes for the ball carrier.
Kenney is a senior and will be hard to

Chink has an assignment of neatly flip-

able job at quarterback. Sonny is a jun-

This year our season was both good and bad. ln the opening game with
Olney we were defeated by a score 19-12. The boys showed a good spirit.
The second game with Palestine was a deadlock: both teams could not score.
The best game of the year was with Albion by a score of 20-7. We were de-
feated in the worst game of the year with Mattoon 28-7. The Charleston T. C.
game was close in playing. The scoring was 12-6, but later Charleston T. C.
had to forfeit the game because an ineligible player played in the game. The
Homecoming game ended in a sad way with Robinson leading 13-60. Newton
again fell in a deadlock with Martinsville by a 0 score. The next to last game
was with a strong Charleston High eleven which beat the Eagles 18-O. The last
game of the season was played against a strong team from Salem. They out-
played the Eagles in the first half, but the Eagles came back to play them off
their feet in the second half of the game. It ended 14-7 in Salem's favor.
Although our season has had its share of defeats and victories, much
credit goes to our Coach Fox and his boys.

The N. C. H. S. basketball Eagles of '41 and '42 won 11 and lost 16. They
started the season with a win over Bridgeport but lost the next game to their
old rival, Oblong.
The season was a series of ups and downs. The longest winning streak
was 4 games while the longest losing column was 5 games. One of the best
games of several years was played on the local floor against Hutsonville.
One of the ups in the season was the 57 to 32 win over Toledo in the Eastern
Illinois League Tournament in which the Eagles advanced to the quarter-finals.
This was the second largest score ever made in the tourney's history.
In the E. I. League schedule, the Eagles won 8 and lost 8. This left them
fairly high in the standings. The brightest spot of the season was the winning
of 4 games in a row over Martinsville, Charleston T. C., Palestine, and Mar-

CALLING THEIR SHOTS
Glenn Bussard tseniorl- Bussard, a veteran of two
seasons, was one of the high scoring type. His long
shots and fast dribble-in-shots kept the Eagles in the
running in several games. He scored l58 points
during the season and will be sorely missed next
Wayne Iones tseniorl Jones has been the lead-
ing scorer the last two years and a 3 letter winner.
His height and one handed shots made him a fix-
ture on this year's team. His rebounding and de-
fensive work were also helpful. He scored heavily
and collected 252 points during the season's play.
Bill Pryor tseniorl- Bill, playing his only year of
basketball after transferring from Dundas, was a
back guard. Although not scoring heavily, he
showed his power in rebounding and defensive
drive. He held many opponents to low scores. He
scored 52 points.
Duane Sims tiuniorl-One of the three underclass-
men on this year's squad. He was a good set shot
as well as an excellent one handed shooter. He
contributed his share of points in all games, and
should lead next year's team in scoring. He scored
Irvin Roberts tiunio X Elie other of our two under-
classmen forwards. lrb's spirit and scoring punch
were a welcome feature to the team. He was the
first man down on the fast break and could always
catch the opponents napping. He scored 97 points
and should be one of the mainstays for next year.
Dewey Resch tseniorl- f"Duke" was an alternate
guard and forward. He saw action in all the games
and his deadly two handed shots gave the oppon-
ents many jitters. He also showed his worth in de-
fensive rebounding. He scored 41 points and will be
missed next year.
Dale Birch tseniorl-Playing his only year of bas-
ketball for N.C.H.S., he was a dependable player
when help was needed. He was exceptionally fast,
breaking in to the basket for many shots. His best
game was against Toledo in the E. l. League Tour-
ney. He scored 43 points.
Francis Hall tjuniort- Hall was one of our man
reserves. He developed rapidly during the latte'
part of the season and should make an experienced
player next year. Not shooting much, he collected
l2 points and they all came when they were needed
most. He will return next year.
Lloyd McCon'nick tseniorlf-McCormick was a sub-
stitute center and guard. He was always ready for
action and showed plenty of ability when he did
play. His height and spirit helped greatly in time
of need. He relied on passing and teamwork rather
than shooting. He scored 8 points during the year.
Norman Beneiiei tseniorl--Another faithful reserve
was Benefiel. He saw action in several of the aa nes
and showed his worth in all of them. His spirit and
drive were outstanding and he relied on passing
and teamwork for his honors. He scored 6 points.

The second team, after a slow start, won ll and lost 14. The team was

The freshmen-sophomores played most of the games, and although they had
to play against the second tives of other teams, they showed their ability of
The juniors were boys who needed experience and conditioning before
they could play the advanced style of ball. They should prove valuable play-
ers next year.
The entire second team oi Girhard, Dunnigan, Ward, Levitt, Cantwell,
Mitchell, B. Bussard, Perisho, Douthit, Hayes, and Worcester will be available

The "N" Club, sponsored by coaches Everett Fox and Stuart Newsome,
consists of major lettermen who have voting power and of those lettermen who
do not have voting power.
At their first meeting they elected the following officers: lames Wilson,
president: Wayne lanes, vice-presidentg and Ray Ochs, secretary-treasurer.
lt is the Custom of the club to give an award to any sportsman who has
played three years on one varsity team. This year two boys were eligible. To
larnes Wilson was given a small gold football for four years in varsity foot-
ball, and to Wayne lanes was presented a small gold basketball for three years
in varsity basketball.

The Newton baseball team of 1941 turned out to
be a success as far as percent was concerned. The
team won 12 and lost 2 in E. 1. competition. Due
credit goes to the Newton Softball Association for
turning out some good high school ball players.
Our outstanding feat was winning a trophy in the
district tournament at Effingham. This advanced
the team to Springfield where we were defeated by
a fairly good ball club. Highlight of the game was
a home run by Ray Ochs, catcher of the Eagle tearn.
Pitching duties of the team were divided about
equally between Ray Snyder and Lefty Mileke.
Bower, a capable first baseman, was at first. 1, Rob-
erts and W. Roberts shared second, while French
took care of shortstop. Resch played a good defen-
sive game at third, while the fly chasers were lones,
Mendenhall, and Yost.

THE 1941 TRACK SEASON
The Eagles' 1941 track team won no meets be-
cause of lack of candidates. Mr. Newsom, the track
coach, worked very hard to get a good team. Those
he worked with, were Very good. Because of lack
of experience of the trackmen they had much trouble.
Newsom had some very good point getters. Most
of them were seniors, but some of them were juniors
whom we have back this year. Here are the names:
Clifford Dewhirst-quarter mile,
Donald Dufraine-Low hurdles.
lohn Flanagan-Shot put, discus.

Remember our volleyball tournament? Yes, the
seniors won it again. Beginning with their fresh-
man year, they took the laurels lor four consecutive
years. Look out next year, though, anything can
The G.A.A. this year had fifty members, under
the leadership of Miss Helen Burgoyne. The girls
met early in the year and elected Ruth Matson,
president, Nita Sunderland, vice-presidenty and Ro-
sella Portlock, secretary-treasurer.
During the month of September one hike was
planned for every week, but due to rainy weather
only two were enjoyed. Vlfe spent the time playing
volleyball instead. We had a grand time at the
Robinson Play Day this month, too. The Robinson
girls were "swell,"
In October we prepared a float tor Homecoming
and won third prize in the parade. The G.A.A. float
was decorated in white and green with "Let's Clean
Up on Robinson" for our slogan.
As part of our Christmas celebration this year we
donated toys to the Civics Club for the poorer chil-
dren of Newton.
Miss Lenora May, last year's president, was our
guest speaker at the initiation party held in Ianuary.
Though only nine of the fifteen initiates attended,
we had lots of fun, and to those who didn't come,
we say, "Beware next year!"
A "potluck" supper on February 19 was enjoyed
by fourteen of the G.A.A. girls.
During April and May we packed our lunches
and went hiking or bicycling. Yum! Yum! How good
that food was!
Though we've forgotten the sore muscles, we
haven't forgotten the grand times, and the senior
girls regret that, for them, there shall be no more.

BOOKS FOR N. C. H. S. BUDDIES
Here in N.C.l-l.S. are many "books for buddies"-
here because the board of education has allotted
liberal funds for their purchase.
These books furnish the answer to many ques-
tions: "l-low much corn was raised in the U. S. in
l94l?", "What's the difference between cr German
plane and a British plane?", "Where did that fellow
live who wrote the story I read last week?" These
books give material for long term problems, for
special reports, and for satisfying idle curiosity.
Plus magazines, they provide recreational reading.
All kinds of stories-animal, love, adventure, mys-
tery--are here for reading: that is, when they aren't
"out." Some books are never "in" for more than

On September 25, a group of students assembled for the first meeting of
the Home Economics Club. They consisted of two types of members-those
enrolled in Home Economics and those interested. To hold an office, a girl
had to have at least one year of Home Economics. The following girls were
chosen as office holders: Erlene Calvert, presidentp Iuanita Foster, vice-
presidentg Phyllis Flanagan, secretary: Nadine Frichtl, treasurer, Evon Wag-
ner, song leader: Betty Heady, Norma lean Short, Coletta Emmerich, Marion
Ginder, and Norma Wakefield, program committee. The club was scheduled
to meet activity hour, the fourth Thursday of the month.
At one of the first night meetings, the new members were initiated. A very
beautiful candle light service was held to pledge them. This was followed by
folk dancing and, later, refreshments. At another meeting in April, the girls
entertained their mothers.

"REMEMBER PEARL HARBOR," a national slogan, is being met by Tasper County F.F.A.
boys with their "FOOD FOR VICTORY" battle cry. You can hear them this summer, as they
go up and down the corn rows, around the red top fields, or over the feedlot fence.
Excellent supervised Farm Practice Programs, Father and Son Partnership Agreements, more
and better purebred livestock, clean field seeds, additional farm gardens, and more active par-
ticipation in cooperative farm organizations is their program to produce more food, to help Win
Our leaders attended the State F.F.A. Convention at Urbana in Iuly and the District F.F.A.
Leadership Camp at Dixon Springs in August.
Dr. H. M. Hamlin of the Vocational Agriculture Department of the University of Illinois se-
lected the Newton Chapter as one of ten over the state this year, to cooperate with the Univer-
sity in a long time Community Program Planning and Evaluation project. Those selected to work
as an advisory council with the Agriculture Department and the University of Illinois on this
program were Mrs. S. C. Crouse, Raymond Wagner, Sr., Lester Webb, William Emmerich, Walter
Lambert, Clyde Mascher, Frank Mitchell, and Ben Bollman.
On the campus, five acres of tillable, idle wasteland was cleared last spring by the boys
and put into cultivation to demonstrate good soil and cropping practices. Limestone, rock phos-
phate, and muriate of potash were furnished by the Lehigh Limestone Co., Ruhm Phosphate Co.,
and the American Potash Institute. Tractors and implements were loaned to the boys by local
McCormick-Deering and Allis-Chalmers dealers. Chief variety of soybeans were planted on the
fields under the supervision oi the Illinois Crop Improvement Association. A yield of 21.6 bushels
per acre was combined, cleaned in the F.F.A. Seed House, and the seed distributed to local
larmers. In the spring the fields were seeded to Columbia oats and Yellow Blossom Sweet Clover.

lt was just three years ago that Le Cercle Francais was organized in the Newton Com-
munity High School, but we do feel that we have begun to "grow up."
The purpose of the club has been to become better acqruainted with France and to learn
those interesting details about her history, custom, culture, and contributions that help to
make the study of her language more interesting.
During our regular meetings, we sang French songs, attended French movies, gave oral
reports on interesting phases of French life, and reviewed some of the important novels of today
and yesterday. Highlights of the whole year were the Christmas party and attending the
French movie at Charleston.
Officers for this year were:
Margaret Tobias-Mlle. la Presidente.
Ruth Matson--Mlle. la Secretaire.
Betty McKinney-Mlle. la Tresoriere.
A new activity was introduced this year by Miss Mary Bess Culton. Seniors with at
least one year of typing were qualified to become members.
The main idea of the club was to help train those who wished to acquire positions in
the business world. Accuracy and speed in typing, stencil cutting, and other phases of
business were stressed.
The members decorated Miss Culton's car and entered it in the Homecoming parade.
"TRAVEL BY FILM AND SAVE TIRES"
TRAVEL AND SCRIBBLE CLUB
"We the Travel and Scribble Club
Have studied countries from East to West,
But we agree that the U. S. A.
Greatly outshines the rest."
The Travel Club, sponsored by Miss Helen Iacobs, was a new activity this year. Our
organization, which met each Friday, retained a high degree of interest by variation of
program. Besides the films shown, highly interesting pictures and talks were presented to
the club by outside speakers, by the club's sponsor, and by the students themselves.
On September 19, Miss Green of Mercy College, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, addressed
our club and showed her technicolor movies on Mexico. After seeing the gay and brightly
colored scenes of this romantic land, we all decided we should like to visit Mexico, but the
following Friday, we saw a magnificent technicolor film on "This Amazing America" and then
we definitely knew that we wanted to "See America First."
Cur sponsor gave several illustrated talks about the grandeur of National Parks of the
West-Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, Bryce, Zion, Glacier, and others. Colored pictures and
kodachrome films supplemented these talks and helped us realize more of the unequaled
size and beauty of our own country.
Each of the 36 members of the Travel Club paid a small fee at the beginning of the
year to cover film expenses, so we have seen about 25 different films during our meetings.
These pictures were both entertaining and educational.
We have stayed at home the past few months to save our "tires" and cooperate with
Uncle Sam, but yet we can say, "We traveled far with the Travel Club."

The purpose of the Radio Club during the first of the year was to train
the members so that they might receive an amateur's license, but the outbreak
of War changed their plans and limited their study to the principles of radio.
In addition to the equipment that was purchased last year, they bought

The Chess and Checker Club was somewhat smaller this year than last
because of lack of time and of room for a large organization of this kind. For
this reason, it was suggested that people who had been members of the club
for one or two years should enroll in other activities and make room for those
who had not before been members. This year the membership was about
iorty-five. The club was divided into two sections, one meeting on Tuesdays,
and the other on Wednesdays.
The club champion checker player was determined this year, as last, by
a tournament. The names of opponents were drawn in each section, and these
opponents played each other until one had won two games. The winners in
the first round went on to the second bracket while the losers played in the
losers' bracket to determine who should meet the runner-up in the winners'
bracket. The two finalists from each section met in a final round to determine
the club champion. The two finalists in the Tuesday section were Bill Allen
and Eugene Lewis, and in the Wednesday section Mark Meek and lesse
The final round among these players was not yet completed when the
annual went to press.

The extra-curricular speech program at Newton includes debate, oratory, extemporary,
Debate gives participants training in speaking, in public, in voice, in grammar, in using
the library, in composition iboth written and orali, and in sound argument as opposed to
argument that is based on prejudice and opinion. Debating is one of the most valuable
activities for giving students an all-around training that will be extremely valuable after
they finish high school, as well as before.
Debate is more accurately classified as a regular academic subject rather than as an
activity. lt is sponsored by Leroy Gruenewald. The class meets twice each week ihalf as
often as others in other subjectsi. One half unit of credit is given for each of the first two
years of work. That unit itwo half units? may be substituted for English IV or speech l.
This year twenty students were enrolled for debate. Seven of that number were fresh-
men. Four members of the group had two years of varsity experience.
During the past three years, Newton debaters have participated in an average of IOO
debates each year. Included in the schedule for this year were tournaments and dual de-
bates at Lincoln, Vandalia, Decatur, Hinsdale, Elgin, Pinckneyville, Sparta, Charleston, Olney,
and Clay City. On Saturday, December 6, the Newton debaters sponsored their fourth an-
nual tournament. lnvitations to that tournament were sent to twenty schools in Illinois and

models. The purpose of this was to obtain model planes for air base training and also to
benefit the boys Who built them.
The objective of the Hobby Club was to stimulate hobbies, to encourage a more Worthy

Interest in photography grows every year. There is an ever-growing fraternity oi ama-
teur photographers developed through school Camera Clubs. With shortened hours of Work
and the new War Time, the problem of how to best spend one's leisure time is taking on
more importance, and photography as an avocation or a "hobby" has much to recommend
it to one either of an artistic or of a scientific turn of mind. There are several members of
the N. C. H. S. Camera Club who are Well experienced in the taking oi pictures and the pro-
duction by chemical means of a good negative from which is made a good print. Most
ot the pictures found in this annual are taken, processed, and printed for use by the Camera

In 1940, twirling and drum majoring by co-eds was started as an auxiliary to band marching and stunt per-
formances. The few who started Cboth grades and high? did not understand the perfection of such physical edu-
cation of co-ordination of muscle and mind. Most of them quit. Five entered the State Fair contest and came
back with a participation medal.
Two girls were fast enough to enter the 1941 high school contest. About two weeks before the contest they
completely gave up, and two substitutes were found.
This was the beginning of real twirling. The two substitutes, Lois M. Clark and Henrietta Schafer, came back
with real ideas of their own, and they placed in third division at West Frankfort. Ernestine Benefiel accompanied
the team to the contest. She had always been an enthusiastic on-looker. She entered the twirling group. Grade
school twirlers had entered their contest and came home with medals.
It was decided to enter an ensemble, individuals, and flag twirlers at the preliminary to Chicagoland Music
Festival. This was held at West Frankfort. Ten girls practiced once tand sometimes twicei each week form six
o'clock in the morning until nine o'clock for cr period of six weeks. We came back from this contest with Ioyce
Wagy placing second in flag twirling, and the ensemble placing second. This gave us the privilege to compete
at Chicago. Many new ideas were developed from this preliminary contest. Ernestine Benefiel and Betty Bracket

Most of the twirlers have developed this.
The culmination of the squad's ambition was reached when they really made the trip to Chicago. We did not
receive any high honors, but the educational value was very great. They learned to adjust themselves in a large
city at the world's finest hotel, at the world's largest outdoor festival, and they had the privilege of meeting,
hearing, and seeing truly great personalities and organizations. Certain lasting impressions were received that day.
This winter we have met each week and twirled individually and collectively, receiving grades for each ap-
pearance from each of ten requirements. The drum majoring and military speed and smoothness count greatly to
their favor. The new recruits are getting ready for next year's appearances. Three grade school twirlers will
enter high school next year. This club promises to be the greatest and best in this section for the coming year.

IVIERRILY WE ROLL ALONG
For a number oi years, the boys in N. C. H. S. have taken a very small part in organized chorus singing. lt was
felt that this lack of interest was in part due to the fact that the boys were aways grouped together with the girls in
one single chorus. This year, arrangements were made ior a boys' glee club under the direction of Omer Tobias,
and the response has been gratifying. There are now seventeen boys in the group, and they have progressed well
enough to sing before the assembly twice this year.
The boys in the club are grouped as follows:
First Te-nors: Leon Henderson, Denver Hetzer, Duane Slms, and Lynn Warfel.
Second Tenors: Chester Allen, Dale Carlson, Denver Leturno, Ray Lewis, and Glenn Romaclc.
Baritones: Lawrence Dhom, Ross Grove, Eddie Hall, Paul Harris, and Fred Rotramel.

The use of motion pictures as an aid to teaching has become an important part of our
curriculum in Newton Community High School. It has long been believed a true fact that
seeing is believing. Our school is very fortunate to have, as a part of our equipment, a
first class sound motion picture projector.
Our program is only two years old, but we have built up quite a large source material
library. From this source material, each teacher picks for his department suitable films to be
used during the year, and these are scheduled so as to be on hand at the time when that unit
is being discussed in class.
In the high school building, we have a room used solely for visual education. To this
room, the various teachers bring their classes to see the motion pictures pertaining to their
work. After the film has been used, the teachers are asked to fill out "film value" blanks
which are used in the future for recording films.
We belong to the Visual Aids Service of the University of Illinois, also the Motion Picture
Bureau of the Y.M.C.A. From these two sources mentioned above, we get over one hundred
films each year. There is a very large amount of film available from industrial organizations,
all of which is free, except for paying the postage. This is indeed a small fee to pay for so
great a service as these films offer.
We have accepted an invitation from the University of Illinois to be one of the special
group of Experimental Schools of the state actively interested in developing improved tech-
niques, methods, and procedure for using visual and audio-visual aids to instruction. This
is to include all types of objective teaching materials, grouped according to the following
heads: I, Museum: ll, Still Pictures: lll, Motion Pictures, IV, Sound Record, V, Toursp and
VI, Graphics. Our school feels highly honored to be selected as one of these schools, and
we certainly wish to thank the department at the University for giving us the privileges.
A great expense is involved in taking the pictures and preparing the films for school use,
but the dividends the films pay in the educational system are far greater. The students re-
tain what they see on the screen much better than in reading the same material from books.

The officers of the Alumni Association met three times previous to the
Homecoming and made plans for the celebration. Invitations were sent to all
of the N. C. H. S. alumni outside of lasper County.
Much credit is due these officers for such a well-planned affair.
The fourth annual Homecoming of the Newton Community High School
was held October 24, 1941.
At 2 o'clock the band led a long parade of colorful floats representing the
various classes and organizations. The parade marched around the square,
and then a pep meeting was held on the courthouse lawn after which the
prize winners were announced.
First, second, and third prizes were won by the Hobby Club, Drarnatics
Club, and G.A.A. respectively.
The second big feature of the day was the Alumni Banquet served by
the Methodist women. The main speaker at the banquet was the noted alum-
nus, Andrew I. Percival.
The football game between the Newton Eagles and the Robinson Maroons
followed the banquet. The largest crowd in the history of N. C. H. S. attended
Immediately after the game, Alberta Parker was crowned Homecoming
Queen by lames Wilson, captain of the football team. She was attended by

WE NEED RECREATION, TOO
The minstrel show was one of the
several attractions that drew large
crowds at the Senior Carnival. The
members put on a very interesting
program consisting of jokes, songs, and
instrumental pieces. The minstrels
were selected from Omer Tobias' Glee
Club. They were Paul l-larris, Ross
Grove, Louis Einhorn, Lynn Warfel,
Dale Carlson, Archie Meurlott, Paul
Griffith, Eddie l-fale, and Lee Carlson.

sequences included singing, whistling,
and many other embarassing tasks.
The Dramatics Club put on a play
entitled "The Women." The parts
were played by the boys of the Drama
Club. The crowd was kept in a con-

D. L. Young, instructor of Manual Arts, conducted an evening school in elementary elec-
tricity. This was the second year for this class known as National Defense Course A-4.
Twelve out-of-school rural boys, l7-24 years of age, were enrolled. The class met three
hours nightly over an eight weeks' period for a total of l2O hours' instruction in electric wir-
ing and practical repairing of motors and appliances.
Nineteen rural school teachers and townspeople were enrolled in an extension class in
Public Speaking, meeting one night each week during the first semester. Dr. Glen Ross, head
of the Speech Department at Eastern State Teachers College, conducted the course.
Trigonometry was taught by Omer M. Tobias, mathematics instructor, during the second
semester, to a number of local young men desiring to enlist in military service, particularly
the Air Corps. An average enrollment of twelve prospective defenders of our nation attended
these classes. Approximately three months were necessary to complete the course.
When interviewed recently, Mr. Platz said, "There is no valid reason why the public
school buildings, their facilities and faculties, should not be used by those who have reached
the age of 2l. The day will soon come when the schools will be in constant use through-
out the entire year."
A larger group studied Rural Sociology during the second semester. Four quarter-hours
of college credit were given for these courses.

A SUCCESSFUL FUTURE
God make your life a happy one-not by shielding you from sorrow and
pain, but by strengthening you to bear it if it comes.
Not by making your path easy, but by making you sturdy enough to
tread any path.
Not by taking hardships from you, but by taking all cowardice and fear
from your heart as you meet hardships.
Not by granting you unbroken sunshine, but by keeping your face bright
even in the shadows.
Not by making your life always pleasant, but by showing you where
man and God's cause need you most and by making you zealous to be there
and to help.
Not by keeping you from battle, but by bringing you off every field more
than conqueror through Christ "who loves you."
God make your life a happy one.

Why eat poorly baked Bread? Prim's Bakery at Effingham is one of the
very finest bakeries in the state-no bakery can be kept cleaner. The Bread
baked here can not be excelled. Every ingredient is one of the purest and
very best. By saying Prim's Bread you are assured of the best-why not get
the best? Sold by all good dealers. In business since 1912.

Many schools have quit publishing a yearbook, but not Newton. l admire
your courage and fully realize the work you have had to do.
Twenty years ago I, too, helped put out a yearbook at Robinson and as
each year passes l treasure it more and more. As time goes on, you, too, will
more fully value your book, the same as your friends do their furniture when
purchased from the Ted Meskirnen Furniture Store, Robinson, Illinois.
