M' ' T A L T C 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 ahead With sincere appreciation for the fine co operation of the board of education the faculty the students and the patrons of the school I am M B PLATZ Principal R Q Wir in, - , 4.113 X 5 xtifal FE 3 Qtr' SRV Ill!!!

Page 9 X I Page "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 sang, And the echoes of their voices rang And mixed with the sound of Gruenewald's voice, 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: 10 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, "Spud." 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 choir, As she slowly walked up the aisle of the church With a rose in her hair, and her heart all "a lurch." ' 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 Scott. 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 sight: 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 the mess, But Iohn must have cleaned it up, I guess. 1 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 Our thanks. The school will little note or long remember What We say here, But it can never forget what he does here. Page 11 STAFF Bill Lobniier, Business Mrrnuqer. Clcirencte I. Mc- Swnine, Sponsor.

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.

Beatl" By ANNA ALLEN REGIMENT '42 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- ment activities. 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- tributed gifts. 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! -Kathleen Curl.

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- mander. 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. By RUBY MILLSAP.

C O R P O R A L S REGIMENT '44 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 Babbs. 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 of '44, Page 35 Page 36 P R I V A T E S REGIMENT '45 We young recruits began our training at Fort N. C. H. S, last September. We admit we were pretty "green" at first, but we've become better adapted to camp life during the past months. Paul Walker was elected Commander at our first meeting. He has been aided by the following officers: Geraldine Mc- Knight, president: Mary lean Eberhardt, vice-president: Iohn D. King, secretary: and Donald Emmerich, treasurer. Our class was represented in most of the various activities. Several of our girls helped to form the larger part of the Drum Majorette Corps, and several of our ranks were band members.

Hen derson J Mfson Gu-hard B Pryor TEAIVIPLAY 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 and Tackle Club. 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. Non-mm Benefiel CDutchl Dutch was veteran end for two seasons. His ability to snare passes and turn in plays was an important cog in our de- fense. Dutch is a senior. 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 junior. less McFarland CGripe7 lessie was letter winner last season at guard position. His ability to crash through the opponent's line caused many losses for the opponents. lessie is a jun- ior and runner-up for captain. Gene Wagner tSandyl 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 replace. Paul Girhurd CChinkl Chink has an assignment of neatly flip- ping the ball to the backfield men. His defensive ability is always a threat to the opposing team. Chink is a sophomore and shows great promise of being among the best before his high school career is finished. Glen Sunderland CSonnyl Sonny won his letter at blocking back last season and has been doing a credit- able job at quarterback. Sonny is a jun- ior and is expected to do great things. He was elected captain for the '42 season. Page 41 THE U. S. ARMY BUILDS MEN Page 42 BOTTOM ROWfleft to right: R, Clark, Bogard, Birch, Erwin, Reich, Andrews, Dunnigan, Tanner, Douthif, Lewis.

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.

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- tinsville again. SEASON RECORD Nov. Newton 34 Bridgeport There Dec.

Newton 19 Bridgeport Robinson Page 43 CALLING THEIR SHOTS Page 44 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 year. 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 145 points. 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. Hall Suns 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. --EVERY BASKET COUNTS BOTTOM ROW-Mr. Newsom, R. Douthit, B. Hays, B. Perisho, A.

The team was composed of two groups-one of freshmen-sophomores and the other of juniors. 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 winning. 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 for next year's team and should help form a well balanced squad. Page 45 Page 45 BOTTOM ROW-G. Bussard, L. Mitchell, P. Girnard, J.

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. Nine lettermen are returning next year, and a good season is expected.

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.

Page 48 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 happenl 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. 1 I 3 IUC ILO .Q A I .

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 an hour.

As a climax to Book Week, the student librarians, under Miss Smith, were hosts and host- esses at a Book Tea for the faculty and their wives. The Home Ec classes, directed by Miss Eugenia Flori, prepared the tea, and Wilma lean Allison poured. The same book exhibit was on display. By means of plants, flowers, and changing bulle- tin board exhibits, the library is kept an attractive place. Yes, it's the library with its "books for buddies" for learning and for fun.

"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 this war. 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. 552,253.00 were the net earnings, including labor income, by the 41 bays from their super- vised home farming practices during the past year. 5Ell5.00, in addition to the above earnings, was received from county and district fair pre- miums. 5343.00 profit by Ray Probst on his Barred Plymouth Rock farm poultry flock was the highest income.

INTERNATIONAL COMRADESHIP 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. TYPEWRITERS DRAFTED 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 Speech Club was an unorganized club tor the purpose oi promoting better speech in N.C.H.S. and placing Newton among the winners in the various speech contests over the state. The students met with Miss Bette Lou Bails every Thursday or Friday ot each week and after school to receive help on their chosen speech. These students were used quite otten in programs both at school and in town. Seven students entered the invitational contest at Charleston T. C. on February l2, 1942, taking some third places. Both the sub-district and district speech contests were held at N.C.l-l.S. Newton was represented in comedy and dramatic readings, original oration, oratorical declarnation, and debate. Students in Speech Club were: Mary lean Warren, Norma Foltz, Patsy Adams, Geraldine McKnight, Margaret Tobias, Duane Smallwood, Bob 'Wor- cester, Ray Weber, and Lon Cleaver.

Attractive black enamel and gold pins were presented to the members in lanuary. Sigma Phi Lambda was particularly active this year in giving programs for school and town meetings. The club provided entertainment for the Civic Club, Rotary, Woman's Club, Annual Postmasters' Banquet, and the Senior Carnival. The monthly meetings consisted of make-up demonstrations, one-act plays, radio programs, and talks on drama. Before the Christmas holidays, the members drove to Charleston, illinois, to see "Little Foxes" presented by the national dramatics fraternity, Theta Alpha Phi. The first semester was climaxed by a Christmas party. The all-school play, a mystery comedy, The Night Was Dark by Iames Beach, was sponsored by Sigma Phi Lambda on a Friday night, March 131 The cast included Donald Fithian, Charles Schackman, Mary lean Warren, Dorothea Windle, Margaret Tobias, Rozella Portlock, Bob Hubbard, Bill Lobmier, Mary lane Diel, Norma lean Westendorf, Dale Bryan, and Lorraine Mulvaney.

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.

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 McFarland. The final round among these players was not yet completed when the annual went to press. Page 63 Page 64 DEFENDING DEMOCRACY BOTTOM ROW-H. Sinclair, N. Frichtl, R. Milner. MIDDLE ROW-M. Tobias, N.

The extra-curricular speech program at Newton includes debate, oratory, extemporary, and declamation. 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 indiana.

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.

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 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. Twirling requires standing personality.

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.

There were about 60 students who became members. The chorus gave a concert this spring. The program consisted of various songs suggesting the moods of com- posers. Tn addition to the spring concert, the chorus entertained with a few selections at the Christmas programs. A sextet was selected from the chorus early in December.

VISUAL EDUCATION Stewart Williams, Sponsor 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.

Lea Koontz 'ZI tnot in picturej, 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 the game. Immediately after the game, Alberta Parker was crowned Homecoming Queen by lames Wilson, captain of the football team. She was attended by lanet Ross, Phyllis Flanagan, Norma lean Short, Geraldine McKnight, Betty McKinney, and luanita Foster. The Homecoming dance concluded the day's festivities.

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. SENIOR CARNIVAL This picture of the gym floor during the Senior Carnival shows only a part of the huge crowd enjoying themselves playing bingo, pitching pennies, throwing confetti, and various other things. Many enjoyed the boxing bouts. The ticket table was the center of activity. These tickets were the medf ium of exchange at the Senior Car- nival. Ticket sales this year surpassed that of all previous years. This ac- counted ior the great success of the carnival. Minstrel Show The Midway Ticket Office Professor Quiz One of the attractions that the crowd seemed to enjoy most was the Pro- fessor Ouiz Program. Glenn Sunder- land acted as Professor Ouiz and se- lected his students from the audience. The student received a prize if he answered his question, if not, he suf- fered the consequences. These con- sequences included singing, whistling, and many other embarassing tasks. The Women 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- tinuous roar. Shiloh Grade School The Shiloh Grade School Group shown in the picture were the win- ners of the first prize for their play given as part of the big free feature program at the Senior Carnival. The Girl Scout troop won second prize, Matlock School won third, and the Bogota Christian Church won fourth prize. Page Civilians very often like to know what goes on in the army.

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.

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.
