R. DeVoe. During the thirty years that he has spent at SHS, Mr. DeVoe has taught a variety of subjects, including shop, algebra, geometry, physics, and chemistry. Since 1931 he has held the position of Assistant Prin- cipal of SHS. Mr. DeVoe was born on December 13, 1893, in Freeport, Illinois. After receiving his elementary and high school education in Freeport, he studied at Northwestern University and received his B.S. degree from that school in 1917. 4:-.w-a ..--.-- A I x A rqu , .

DeVoe Without the capable supervision and direction of Mr. Roscoe Eades and Mr. U. R. DeVoe, the school and all its activities could not function properly. Mr. Eades has had his time taken up this year almost ex- clusively by matters pertaining to the new school, and Mr. DeVoe has been in charge of a large part of the student program. The friendly co-operation and helpful sense of right and wrong expressed by these men have proven their leadership abilities. One of the least recognized and most important organizations of SHS is the School Board. Its members have unselfishly given much time and energy toward the welfare ofthe students and school activities. Also very much interested in the school, the Alumni Board is active in school activities-sponsoring dances and reunions, developing school spirit, and backing the sports program. SEMO! BORN! Mr. D.

Such refreshments during school hours vitalize the smiles and humor of these g'irls1necessary qualities for a day's secretarial Work. The caretakers of the school buildings have consistently kept the school and grounds at the peak of condition.

For the senior class, 1949-50 has been a year of progress, as were the three preceding ones. One may look in any direction and see signs of this class's accomplishments. Their victories in the fields of sports and music speak for themselves. This year's basketball team was the first in the history of the school to go to Champaign-thus becoming one of the "sweet sixteen" teams in the state. Above all, the seniors have proven that they are good school citizens and that they should make equally good records for themselves after they have left school. The seniors sponsored two successful dances this year. The first, "The Cat's Meow," was the very successful, annual Hallowe'en Frolic. Fortune telling, darts, and movies were only a part of the activities that preceded the dance. The co-chairmen of the Frolic were Lola Nelson and Harry Blaisdell. "The Arabian Nights," which was held on the last day of March, was the senior dance. Its theme and decorations concerned flying car- pets and other Arabian fantasies. Joan Engelkens and Lyle Marquis were the co-chairmen of this dance. Rotary played an important role in senior activities. Six Junior Ro- tarians were chosen every three weeks from the senior class to attend the luncheon-meetings of the Sterling Rotary Club. At these meetings the seniors not only meet some of the prominent men of the town but also learned many interesting facts fromthe informative programs pre- sented during each meeting. . .yonora anal lgecognifion Another activity of the seniors was the senior play, "The Late Chris- topher Bean," which was presented for the student body and public on March 23 and 24. Larry Norton played the part of Doctor Haggertg Marilyn Miller, his Wife, Jean Sonneman and Lola Nelson, their daugh- ters, Dick Nuttall, an art dealer, Shirley Vorderstrasse, Abby, the maid, Warren Thummel, a forger of paintings, Orville Kimball, a young painter, and Harry Blaisdell, an honest art Critic. Under Miss Barbara Larson's direction, this play turned out to be a very successful senior activity. Much of the success of the senior class may be attributed to the friendly guidance of their advisers, Miss Doris Burritt and Miss Ruth Welle, who gave much of their time and energy to make this an out- standing year for the seniors.

"Pirates Prance", another junior production, held the fall spotlight as one of the outstanding dances of the school year. On that November 11 evening, the school gym was dressed in a befitting pirate garb. The "Rollikin' Rosie", a good pirate ship, was the scene of a two-act floor- show, which served as an interlude to the dance music of the "Star- dusters".

Such was the praise bestowed upon the tennis men after they racked up the first SHS tennis victory since the war-a Win over the Dixon Dukes. Under Coach Brandau's supervision, more than thirty prospective tennis wielders turned out for this spring sport, giving Sterling solid team strength and insuring good teams in the future. Seven matches were scheduled for the SHS netmen, three away from home and the remainder on the stadium courts. Highlighting the season was a tie for third place in the district tennis clash at East Rockford. The racquet-swinging Warriors turned in great games of tennis and placed ahead of Dixon, Freeport, and Belvidere. Rochelle shared third place with SHS, and East and West Rockford finished first and second, respectively. 1949 TENNIS SCHEDULE April 20: fVars.J Clinton, 5: SHS, 2. CF-SJ Clinton, '73 SHS, O.

The majority of the team were inexperienced in the intricacies of the game but made a good showing in competition on the links. Rock Falls became the only SHS victim when the Warriors dumped the Rockets 914 to 615 at the Prairieview course. Dave Bressler, Irvin Lobaugh, Jim Ohda, Palmer Miller, and Dick Nuttall gained individual victories to give Sterling the win. In the NCIC meet, Sterling battled to fourth place, one notch ahead of the last place Rock Falls squad. DeKalb's Lunt led his team to vic- tory by shooting a 76, while Phil Ward's 87 was high for the SHS tee-toters. Though only winning one out of seven matches, Coach Hoogeveen and his boys laid a strong foundation for the future of golf at SHS. 1949 GOLF SCHEDULE April Dixon, 95 SHS, 3. fHereD April Rochelle, 183 SHS, 0. fTherel May Rock Falls, 6Lg SHS, 934. fHereJ May Dixon, 20, SHS, 2. fTherel May Princeton, Sq SHS, 0. fHereJ May DeKalb, 6: SHS, 0.

Not only did they take the NCIC championship, but they also had an unbeaten, untied season. They were one of four teams in SHS history to accomplish thisifeat. The Warriors started off the season by drubbing Community in a game which had many penalties called on both sides-more for reasons of inexperience than for roughness. In their next game they trounced the Dixon Dukes, and this time the whole Sterling first string proved their worth-showing that Mr. Mitchell had a very well balanced team. On Homecoming night the Warriors really outdid themselves and beat Princeton before a capacity stadium crowd. In their next game, a high scoring battle with DeKalb, Sterling left the field the victors although DeKalb had started the game off by returning a kick-oft to score the first touchdown. Sterling won their hardest fought battle on October 21 by beating Hall Township in the last five minutes of play. And in their next game, the Warriors took the NCIC title with their victory over Ottawa. The SHS squad came through with their seventh consecutive victory by beating Thorton of Harvey, and Morrison was the Victim of the Warriors' eighth win. Their victory over Rock Falls on November 10 topped off the ex- tremely successful season for the SHS Golden Warriors.

During the 1949 season, these boys won only one game and lost the rest by very narrow margins-six points or less. The"Papo0ses" opened their season by losing to a more experienced Dixon team. In their next game, the frosh-soph's lost to a larger and more experienced Clinton team. On October 4 the "Papooses" got their only victory of the season, a 7-0 win over DeKalb. Their touchdown was scored by a pass from Carlyle Cameron to Dick Czuprynski. In Sterling's next two games, the "Papooses" were beaten by 'teams from Hall Township and Ottawa. And in their last game of the sea- son, the frosh-soph team lost to a Rock Falls squad. Regardless of their hard luck, these boys gained valuable exper- ience during the year, and this should make them a tough team to beat next year. 1949 FROSH-SOPH FOOTBALL SCHEDULE Sept. 30: SHS, 73 Dixon, 12.

E. Smallls SHS runners got off to a fast start in the 1949 cross-country season. Paced by Jack Watson and Stan Stefanich, the distance men marched over Dixon, Erie, Byron, and LaSalle-Peru in succession. This march was climaxed by a victory in the NCIC meet held at Sterling on October 22. Scoring 39, the Sterling crew won the championship over Geneseo, De- Kalb, Dixon, and Princeton-teams which placed in the order given. Stan Stefanich captured first place with a good time, and Jack Watson copped third. After this third consecutive NCIC triumph, the SHS runners downed Erie before going to the dis- trict meet. In the district competition, Rock Is- land walked away with top honors, and Sterling took second place. At the state finals, Stefanich finished 29th and Watson 32nd. 53 gaaleigaf ROW I-Bob Galloway, Stanley Doden, Jim Galloway, Elwin Thielen, Jack Hall, Jack Lyon.

These boys not only won the Intercity and NCIC championships, but they were the first SHS team to go to the "sweet sixteen" state finals at Champaign. Coach Hall's squad got off to a slow start but gained considerably in strength as the season progressed. In their regular season, the War- riors won fifteen of their games and lost eight. At the Dixon regional, the Warriors rolled to victory by defeating Amboy, Community, and Rock Falls. And in the Moline sectional, the Blue and Gold boys swamped Aledo in the first game of the tournament. On May 10 the Warriors had their best game of the season, the final game of the Moline sectional. In this thrill-packed game, the SHS team defeated a strong Rock Island five and thereby were qual- ified for the state tournament at Champaign. In the first game of the state tournament, Sterling was beaten by a tough Tilden Tech team. Although the Warriors came out on the short end of the scoring, they still displayed the skill, stamina, and determination which made them a championship team. ,4nn 4 fi ' I ff mf Nz' 450 f f ,, fi' 44 ,O f"f,', 1 ' H my Q W ww? 12 ff ,ff L! fe 1 pufw. 5 4:1 v T mf J iw ,, 'Y 3 a WQ W . . ,A i Q -..

Along with these features, this school publication gave coverage of SHS activities and published pictures and cartoons. During the year, several special issues of "Script" were presented. At Christmas the newspaper reflected the yuletide spirit by using green ink as well as by featuring Christmas articles. On April Foo1's Day the mood of the day was carried out in several humorous articles con- trived to misinform the student body. The juniors had charge of the ninth issue of the paper, and the final copy of the year was dedicated to the seniors. The staff of the "Script" was divided into five groups-feature, news, sports, circulation, and copy staffs. Carlanne Ruck and Shirley Humphrey served as co-editors, and Mr. Herbert Parsley was the facul- ty adviser. 64 TOP PICTURE.

Cyflllllfif ,NKWJJ .S70A'l? .SJCAOOK l9I'0AA'll1J Solving the problems concerning student life at SHS was the m un job of the Student Council during the past year. This organization was also a link between the faculty and the students of SHS A preliminary election of cheerleaders was one of the first jobs of the council. By reducing the number of contestants in this first elec tion, the final selection, which was made by all the students thus was simplified. Assemblies with student appeal were chosen by a committee of Councilmen and faculty for next year. Working hand in hand with the Alumni Association the council helped sponsor the "Basket Ball" on March 25. This dance honoied the varsity basketball team after they had participated in the sweet sixteen" tournament at Champaign. Josephine Cole and Marilyn Bawden served as officers for the year. Sponsors for the group were Miss Mildred Krughoff and Mr June Lee.

Such was the wording of a pledge by which Principal Eades in- ducted six new members into the Sterling Chapter of the National Honor Society. This occasion marked the first increase in the mem- bership of the group since the original twenty honor students were elected to the first SHS honor organization in the spring of 1949. The purpose of the National Honor Society is to create an enthusi- asm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, encourage worthy students, and to develop character in the pupils of the schools in which a chapter exists. An intricate and thorough method is used in determining the mem- bership of this highly selective group. Prospective members must not only maintain a high scholastic average but must excel in 'traits of character, leadership, and courage.

Striking outside the world of competitive sports the organization has sponsored dances, banquets, and other activities In the fall the boys collaborated with the GAA to produce an outstanding event the annual Homecoming Dance. Climaxing the day's parade pep meeting and football clash, the affair honored Warrior heroes of past and present. Additional opportunities for raising club funds weie provided by the sale of booster plates for cars and Warrior T-shirts Besides at tempting these monetary efforts, club members assisted during the basketball season by distributing programs, taking tickets ushering and door-watching. Behind "Sn Club activities is the entire SHS coaching staff headed by Mr. Scheid. Elected at the spring initiation to hold offices during 1949 1950 were Ray Kenaga, president, Roger Puterbaugh, vicc presldcnt incl George Wechsler, secretary-treasurer. 78 TOP PICTURE.

This event was the first of the season for the Girls' Athletic Association, and it ushered in a year full of activities. Soon after this initial affair, Sinnissippi Park was the scene of an- other big GAA supper. This time it was "pot-luck", held jointly with the FFA on September 24. As a finale to one of the festive days at SHS, the club co-sponsored the Homecoming dance on October 7. Other social activities of the year were the WPA dance on April 14, and the annual spring banquet, which was given on May 16. Fall, winter, and spring sports rounded out the year for this all-girl organization. One of these sports, archery, brought state-wide recog- nition to five club members who won third place in the state telegraphic tournament. Added this year to the club's calendar was something new-roller skating. Trips to Polo were scheduled each month so that the girls might skate along with GAA members from other schools in this vicinity. Miss Helen Becker and Miss Eunice Deffenbaugh were the advisers of this active group. Assisting them in the administrative work of the association were JoAnne Kunde, president, Kalah Wesner, vice-presi- dentg Helen Fenner, treasurer, and Sue Bucher, secretary. TOP PICTURE.
