Here they hunted deer and bisong Here they lived and toiled and prospered, Long before their pale face brothers Found these lands so Wild and wayward, Found these Woodlands and these meadows. And their mighty chiettan, Blackhawk, Bravest of all lndian Warriors, Led the red men into battle, Led them from the field victorious, Like our army and our navy, Fighting now across the Water, Many Sterling High alumni Are enrolled in the armed forces, And they serve this country ably ln a time of groivest peril. To the courage and the bravery Of these fine American Warriors, To their boldness when in battle, To their wholesome mode of living - We, the students of this high school, We would dedicate this yearbook.

Homeward they then Came exulting With the trophies ot the battle, With a shout and song of triumph, To the shores ot Sterling high school. And the tribesmen in the school Vlfaited tor the coming heroes: Listened to their songs of triumph, Welcomed them with songs and dances, Made a joyous Celebration, And in cheering numbers shouted, "Honor he to Sterling warriors!"

With the overwhelming success of the 1940 eleven still looming in the minds of the players, students, and all ardent boosters, the 1941 team faced a challenge. With cooperation and hard work the boys turned in a successful season in the North Central Conference. lnexperience told the tale in the season's opener as Rock Falls trounced the Sterling elev- en 25 to 7, on the Rock Falls field. lt seemingly wasn't in the hands of fate to have Sterling win an intra-city game this year. The following week, Community defeated Sterling 7 to 0. Co-Captain Harry Woodyatt finally got the Goldmen off on the right foot with a 7 to 6 con- ference win over Mendota. Woodyatt reeled off 24 yards for a touchdown and then place- kicked the extra point to give a thrilling victory to Sterling. Former conference member Belvidere proved no match for Sterling in a game played on the former's field, as Woodyatt again capitalized the scoring for a 13 to 0 win. A slippery turf held down the score. Princeton was next on the schedule. Sterling won the game with a 19 to 7 victory. Gallo- way plunged for one touchdown, while Woodyatt scored the other two. The annual tussle with Dixon ended in a victory for Sterling, 6 to 0, as Galloway circled end to score the game-winning touchdown. This made two victorious years in succession over the purple invaders. This game highlighted the Homecoming celebration. With no conference defeats chalked against them, Sterling swam to DeKalb but even a submarine would not have helped a lot in the quagmire of mud, as DeKalb annexed the conference crown from the Sterling team with a 13 to 6 win. insult was laboriously added to injury at Clinton, Iowa in the season's finale, as Clinton defeated Sterling 14 to 0. This defeat left the team with a .500 percentage, but the season was actually much more of a success than that. It was the will to do and the fighting spirit that carried the boys along. !f"JJ'w !yQ,y'l,,f PS1-. f I J rV,ff',ffm J' W'lZFlv'l iii JJLQEQQEKRMEN ,W Nelson H.

FRESHMAN-SOPHOMORE FOOTBALL The papooses of Bud Terhune fared quite Well in their tribal warfare during the football moon, completing their season with five victories, two defeats, and two ties. Stan Ridge staggered over for a touchdown to give the baby injuns a 6 to 6 tie with Rock Falls in the season's opener. The freshman-sophomore squad did not play Community on the same night that the varsity did, but twice during the year they played and defeated their cross-town rivals. These victories were included in the regular schedule. Mendota was met and defeated 6 to O in the first conference game. Belvidere fell before the frosh-soph eleven 6 to O in the first conference game. A wet field proved too much for Sterling or Princeton to contend with, and the game ended in a scoreless tie. Dixon maintained their jinx over the Sterling freshman-sophomore group for the second straight year with a l3 to 6 victory. Dekalb fumbled a ball to present Sterling with a 6 to U win in the final conference game of the season. Clinton mauled Sterling in the last game of the year, 33 to 7. The game was played on the Clinton gridiron. Sterling landed in second place in the final conference standings and developed several out- standing performers for next year's varsity team.

VARSITY BASKETBALL The 1941-42 basketball quintet came through their rigid 22-game schedule in satisfying style, winning ll and losing 11 for a .500 percentage. As did the football squad, the cagers played under the handicap of a great season the year before, but consistent hard work led to the ultimate goal of a successful season. Rock Falls and Freeport started the season with wins from Sterling, 30 to 28, and 40 to 21. The Sterling five managed to capture the next six games: Clinton was the first to fall in an overtime battle, 41 to 38. Then, Galesburg was defeated 42 to 37, Community 38 to 18, Dixon 33 to 28, and East Moline 37 to 27. Princeton unexpectedly stopped the parade by an upset won on their own floor, 41 to 39. Boone, lowa, making a tour through lllinois, stopped long enough to obliterate Sterling 37 to 27. Waverly, lowa, provided Sterling a chance to see the country, but the lowans defeated the lllinois boys 35 to 33. Sterling marched down to Moline and back with a 41 to 33 defeat. The gold five defeated Mendota 33 to 28 for their second conference win on lanuary 9. The following evening, S.l-1.S. fell at Rockford East 1-ligh, 38 to 30. Thrills abounded in the Coliseum on lanuary l6 as Sterling won a double over- time from DeKalb, 45 to 43. Peoria Woodruff next administered a 45 to 35 defeat. Dixon, always rigorous on their home hard- wood, gained revenge on Sterling With a 43 to 25 lashing. Community fought hard against Sterling but was subdued 28 to 24 in their return engagement. Sterling turned into the home stretch and put on the speed as they rebuked Princeton 37 to 32, Mendota 30 to l7, and then hit a snag: Rock Falls 35, Sterling 27. The course was quickly recovered as Sterling gained a three-way tie for the North Central lllinois Conference championship by defeating DeKalb 43 to 24. West Rockford rallied to beat Sterling in the regular season finale, 4l to 37. A tabulation of the points for all games reveals that Sterling made one more point than their opponents. Sterling rang up a total of 741 to their opponents' 740.

CRCSS COUNTRY After a one year's lapse of activity, the cross-country squad went into action in 1941, under the direction of E. E. Small. Due to lack of experience, the group did not enjoy a successful season from the victory standpoint, but gained much track experience. Two dual meets were held with Kewanee. The Boilermakers won both, one held on their own lot and the other at the new S.l-l.S cross country at Sinnissippi Heights. A dual meet with Peoria Woodruff was also held at Sinnissippi Heights.
