CHEER LEADERS Drum Majorettes Step Lively in New Costumes
Peppy enthusiasm and colorful flips and tumbles are personified in the antics of Pekin High’s popular cheerleaders. They never seem to fail the team, for when the breaks are against us their cheers ring out louder and stronger than ever.
Head cheerleader for the 1940-41 season was Jim Dielil, who is certainly worth his “salt.” Jim leads the cheer leaders, who lead the crowd, who cheer (rather complicated, isn't it?). And on him rests the responsibility of keeping everyone’s spirits high.
The other male mainstay on the squad is .lim Hramlage. Jim is one of the finest tumblers in Pekin, having wrorked with his brothers in the LaRlonde troup, and given a chance to show his prowess, actually makes the crowd gasp.
No cheerleading squad would be complete without its show of pretty girls, so Pekin must have a super-super squad, because of the four charming maids who pull rafter-splitting yells from excited and tense spectators. Helen Hayes claims the distinction of being the smallest of them all, but size holds no limit, for her light body is put through all sorts of contortions.
Jean Myer is another active miss who has proved she can handle the audience, for with her ‘razzle-dazzle, dizzle-dip” she holds all attention. Jean collaborated with Jim Hranilage in presenting a tumbling act for the first annual variety show and deserves every bit of acclaim given her.
A well-known song-and-dance star has added more laurels to her wreath since she joined the cheerleaders. She is “Snooks” Schaefer, and has one of the finest cooperative spirits to be found in this knowJedge-filled institution. Always ready to defend her team, she forms a valuable addition to our squad.
Finally, we direct our praise at a girl who has also won ardour in other fields. We present Ruth Hehnig, skater supreme, who is alw'ays willing, when the score looks bad, to go out and pitch
With a silver twirl and a flash j of colors, five shapely drum majorettes moved down James Field, leading the band thru their maneuvers.

and short, full skirts. Jean Rogers, one of the majorettes, claimed, “We’re bound to look cute!”
These girls include Marguerite Hinds, Mary Ann Parsons, Alba Trenti, Lois Splittgerber, and Jean Rogers.
TENNIS AND GOLF
Although this year’s racket swingers didn’t have a fully successful season, the boys displayed some fine play against some very tough opponents. The boys on Coach Walker’s squad played their best, and they deserve a place in this issue honoring all Seniors.
Two of the doubles members are graduating seniors. Dale Srhlieman and Howard Veerman
into the work of bringing those cheers to a deserving team. Ruth had been active in G. A. A. tumbling and with her leading, the crowd really “raises the roof.” Everyone in attendance at football and basketball games knows how invaluable our cheerleaders have been. We laud and honor them at this time, for no other tribute is ever given them literally. We know we can depend on them for a bigger and more successful 1941-42 season!
are the members who are wedding the racket for the last time. Dale is also one of the fellows that plays in single matches.
Let on by hard driving Dick Seegar, Pekin will be represented at the state tournament by Dick himself. Dick was runner-up at the district held in Peoria and thereby became eligible for State competition. Dick will not be eligible for tennis next year as he will finish at mid-smester time.
Coach Jen kin's golfers have also finished their season and [ look forward to a successful season next year. Although the boys traversed the fairways with tough club-swingers they have showrn plenty of winning form.
Three of the five regulars are graduating seniors. They are: Ralph Xaven, Tom Ross and Roland Carls. These squad members combined w ith Don licrardi, Louis Xoreuil, and “Hud” Maquet, have already played in the district.
