g il' itll' STERLING TOWNSHIP HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICT 300. WHITESIDE COUNTY STERLING, ILLINOIS MAY, 1941 M The school fronts east on Fifth Avenue, a red brick structure covering half a city block. Late in the fall of 1896 the present building opened with about twenty pupils. From 1914 to 1918 there was a demand for more room to accommodate the teaching of such subjects as manual training and home economics. Bonds were voted in 1918 and the north addition of our school was built. In 1936 the house formerly occupied by the principal of the high school was remodeled for home economics classes. The frame building to the west was fitted for vocal music and art classes. 2 A 'H' in , l c: nan c U, 5 j l t Q MP' A H . Won't you come in? We'll be glad to show you around our school. I am Steve Sterling, and this is my sister Sally. We're both seniors, so we think we know our way around the building. We're rather crowded here, because our enrollment has increased in recent years. That means there will be plenty for you to see. We'll show you the 609 students busy with the various activities of a normal school day. Some will be in class rooms, others in labratories, and many H the study hall. Also we want you to meet our teachers, and see a bit of our social and athletic 1 e. Left to Right-Mr. Griesser, Mr. Wheeler, Mr. Stager, Mr. Hendricks, Mr. Janssen. fl 4' May we present to you the five members of our board of education. John M. Stager, the president, a graduate of S. H. S. and the University of Michigan, has served on the board for 18 years. W. L. Hendricks, the secretary, graduate of Brown's Business College, also has been a member of the board for several years. A. W. Wheeler, a graduate of S. H. S. and the University of Chicago, was the editor of the Hrst annual at S. H. S. Carl E. Griesser, graduate of Bradley Polytechnical'Institute, and E. T. Janssen, also a graduate of S. H. S. and the University of Illinois, are recent members. These five men meet with Mr. Eades to deal with the problems that come up in the running of a high school. .-if .Roscoe Eades has served Sterling Township High School as superintendent for ten years. As the administrative head of the school, he is a .busy man indeed. However, the amazing thing to students, faculty, and townspeople is that he seems to know every student as an mdividual, and treat him as such. That is why he IS not only principal, but friend as well, to every member of the high school family. It is Assistant Principal U. R. DeVoe whom you see if you have been absent or tardy, and want to be admitted to class. He'll see that you give El good account of yourself before signing his name to that all important admit slip. Mr. DeVoe also teac chemistry and physics. W- M72 f ,fan .-in Miss Wnlber and Miss Rcaver When you step into the ,outer office, you are greeted by Miss Florence Wolber and Miss Marion Reaver. Secretarial and clerical work around the oilice is handled by them and their assistants. Both are alumnae of S. H. S. At the right you see Mr. Eades in a position he frequently assumes. Announcements can be made to any part of the buildings by use of the intercommunication system. Q To Evelyn P. Marsh we affectionately dedicate this book. Students in her English classes have long appreciated the richness of experience which she brings to the study of language and literature. Mrs. Marsh is a native of Sterling. Finishing college at Wheaton, she crossed the,Pacific on her first trip to China. In that country she taught the children of American residents. There her own daughters were born. After the death of her husband, she returned to America, to teach at Wallace School. In her early years here at the high school, Mrs. Marsh taught not only English, but also music and art. She was the first presi- dent of the local Y. W. C. A. The 1941 Blue and Gold recognizes and honors a kindly friend of learning, a cultivated and gracious lady. 5 -hue' Before we go any further let us introduce the people who helped to make this book. Co-editors Mariann Birch and Helen Lea Hansen worked with Adviser Stryker to produce the 1941 Blue and Gold. John Platt was busi- ness manager. wk I The circulation department was handled by Arthur Melville, assisted by Keith Swartley, Clair Book, and John Q. Adams. Here are Marvin MundorH, Vera Long, Dick and Clarence Strock, who have had a in doing the write ups for the book. Zap., R V I, F t t B k-N ma Rollin , Leat ice Landwair Irene Shaible, Frank Birch.

These students entered high school four years ago when they were known as "green freshies," or more politely, the class of '41. Their activities that first year amounted mainly to observing the upperclassmen in preparation for their future years. Robert Griesser was elected president of the class that year, John Adams, vice president 3 John Platt, secretary, and Paul Overholser, treasurer. Miss Ludens and Mr. Brandau were the avdisers. Sophomore year this class had its Hrst taste of social activity when they sponsored the "Cherry Tree Twirl," an informal dance given in February. John Adams was president of the class 5 Helen Lea Hansen was vice president, Erwin Ridge was secretary 5 Richard Havener was treasurer. Miss Sherman and Mr. Hoogeveen advised the class, In their third year at S. H. S. the class of '41 plunged into the activities of the school with determination.

S. completed a very successful football season, Winning the honor of being the top ranking team in the State of Illinois, winning the conference championship, the intra-city title, and coming through 9 games undefeated. The season opened against Rock Falls at the stadium dedication in which the Blue and Gold showed their worth, winning 18 to 0. Fenner and Hubbart made several long runs. The juggernaut continued against Morrison with Sterling rolling up 34 points and holding the visitors scoreless. A trip to Mendota the next Friday gave the Scheidmen a scare but the boys managed to eke out a 14 to 12 victory. DeKalb was met and defeated at Sterling by a score of 38 to 6. The next Friday night, our rivals from Sterling, Community, took it on the chin to the tune of 27 to 0. Belvidere proved to be no match for the locals and was trounced 33 to 6. The Blue and Gold were on the way. They defeated Princeton 27 to 0, at Princeton. Then came the well known game with Dixon. Dixon took a 7 to 0 lead which was tied up and then the locals forged ahead. Features of the game were the long runs of 55 and 38 yards and by Ridge and Fenner.

Being the first year of com- petition for many of the boys, they were rather green, but should improve with time. Sterling went to Mendota and a 0-0 score resulted, and the next week against DeKalb, Anning went over for two touchdowns to give Sterling a 13 to 0 win. Losing three straight to Belvidere, Princeton and Dixon, the boys ended the season. The locals won one game, lost three and tied one for a .250 average, scoring 13 points to 52 scored by the opponents. 35 boys responded to Coach Pete Hoogeveen's call for freshman football. The boys learned the fundamentals for the first few weeks, then had inter-squad scrimmage. A couple of scrimmages were held at Dixon and at Sterling, where the boys could put the fundamentals together.

Former cheerleaders Naomi Benters, Viola Nester and Helen Myers snapped off some good yell-s. Saturday was marked by a parade, which consisted of numerous floats built by various organizations and clubs. The theme of these floats was t'Beat Clinton!" which the team very effectively did in the afternoon, although it was raining and the field muddy. A dance was held in the evening at the high school. The whole activity was sponsored by the "S" Club and the G. A. A. and was chairmaned by Janet Olinger and Bill Haglund. F6 Jw?

Opening the season with a 22 to 16 win over Clinton, the boys started toward the top slaying Galesburg 32 to 20. Defeating Community and DeKalb, Dixon was the hurdle and it proved too much, the boys being spilled 38 to 32. Starting oh' afresh again, Princeton succumbed, and East Rockford was nosed out 50 to 45, in a Htrack meet," both teams using a fast break. Duhm scored 19 points in this contest. Settling down to a steady schedule of conference foes and intra-city teams, Community and DeKalb were victims of the onslaught. Then on January 31 Sterling met the enemy, Dixon, and in one of the greatest contests ever witnessed in the Coliseum, wiped them out 45 to 40. Still the Blue and Gold kept going. Princeton, Bel- videre, and Mendota fell in the wake by high scoring victories. Freeport proved to be a very tough nut to crack, but it was done, to the tune of 26-20. A win over West high of Rockford ended the regular season, with Sterling winning 18 of 19 contests. Cn to the tournaments. Walnut and Amboy were massacred by Brandau and Co. 66 to 18 and 79 to 23 re- spectively. The "natural" presented itself on Saturday night, again, and Dixon took the count 27 to 25. "Let's go, gang," said Sterling as the team left for the sectional and furnished the tri-cities with a good brand of basketball, eliminating Moline 38 to 31, and going strong over Aledo 55 to 22. In the finals against Kewanee, with the score standing 26 to 24, with 40 seconds to go, Kewanee in the lead, Elwin Duhm stole the ball and put in a pivot shot. The game looked like a sure overtime, with one second to play, Harry Woodyatt was fouled and sank his free shot. f'Beware of the Ides of March," quoth the winds, but the "champs" with everything to gain and nothing to lose, went to Pekin for the quarter-finals. Athens proved no competition and went down to the count of 50 to 22. "Waterloo" was met the next night as a tough and equal Canton squad nosed out Sterling 29 to 28. Sterling, however, tied for the fifth best team in the state. Elwin Duhm set a record in scoring this year, getting 267 points. Capt. Erv. Ridge and Elwin Duhm were honored when placed among the ten men who are chosen for the all-state squad. f" Coach "Bud" Terhune's freshman-sophomore squad gave the fans of Sterling a preview of basketball for the next couple of years. The locals, by placing high in the conference, also showed the opposition that they will be fighting for conference supremacy. The youngsters were led by Captain Danny Troye, who scored a total of 186 points this season. The boys had an odd season, winning 11 games and losing 8. The miniature Blue and Golders were "on" one night and "off" the next. Boys who show good promise are Tom Bogaard, Keith Wells, Keith Brown and Merrill Church. Jack Freeman, varsity guard on the frosh-soph team, weakened the team by moving to another city. nl-S - Row I-Keith Wells, Keith Brown, Ira Abney, Merrill Church, Jack Freeman, Dan Troye, Tom Bogaard.
