Qhe Hourglass 'Q . ' 7 Tx L, ----Q QS SCHOOL POEM I ain't much at writin's pomes Or such the like as that, But sit ye down and grab yer book And we'll just chew the fat. Gosh, the tiays we had them movies I never will fc-rgit. And the times we's caught in the Typin Room And "Walt" had such a fit. It's the little "big" things we remember Like 'tFish" and winning games. And the Buesking-Kircher romance, Strem's grin, and all his dames. Fame and glory came not our way As often as it might, But we'll remember the "Butch" er boy In a district meet one night. It ain't hard to cogitate CMy Heavens what a word!J It only means 'tto think", you know So it ain't so absurd. It ain't hard to cogitate fAs I have said before? And 'member well how John T's feet Were never on the floor. Ruff's shy grin, Dot's dimpled chin, A senior we called 'tRed" Are all a part of memories That never will -be dead. Now look around you, my good friend, And see what you discover. Does Terry still call Bob Nippe "nuts"? Is Strem still Frede's lover? Do trophies stand up 'gainst the wall Atop the case of books? Does Tate still whine 'bout everything? And had out dirty looks? Is Kenny Stremming still called "Spot?' And what of Don and Pete? Have teachers got so they can keep "C" Lading in his seat? Can Hiatts keep their hats upon Their heads when things get hot? Can Kermit sink that basket when Our team is on the spot? The things that I remember may Sound empty-or in vain- But I can dream, relax, and find I'm just a kid again. John T. and N.

We know a young lady-Miss Diel- Who looks at her ring with a smile, If my guess I don't miss, She'll soon change it from "Miss" To "Mrs" the rest of the while. Nona Belle Cruise is our teacher Who hails from down around Beecher. She's, oh so much fun, But she gets her work done, So, we say she's a rare type of creature. Miss Bowman who hails from Mattoon Is usually humming a tune. She sews and she cooks She's known for her looks And enjoys basketball every noon. There was a man named "Walt"- If he's not your friend its your fault For he's jolly and gay Almost every day- To teasing he often says 'tHa1t." Our Coach is known as John T. He's quite nervous, at games, as you see. But his nerves quiet some When he's chewing his gum And ball games he watches with glee. There is a young lady-Eileen- The school secretary so keen. She's seen here and there And goes everywhere- She works, oh so hard, as is seen. -Mary McPherson and Marilyn Hiatt 6trasburg Community High School - 1946 F' ACLIL..TY AND STAFF my gdlllfildfi A A ,K '1 4 ' A A .W Jakzz 11 fllizfrffzizuaffk 9Zamz Falla fflllgl BOARD ffm ffm: 9 Q EDUCATION Jmlle 1, Sec, fin-m fm! mvlfgll' Mrk gllliklfy, 'Sic SCHUUL CLISTUDIANE Zhilzr iflarii 511412 ffftlllfllkf JHNlf'l7K 5115 DRIVER qi Z kj , ,X 1 g S ,gb J N I l?l Qhe jiourg ass --.

A We were very sorry that the following could not return to complete the event- ful Junior year with us. They were: Edna Biesecker, Neva Buesking, Lois Cox, Lois Doty, Joe Latch and Tobe Kircher.

And we gave the Junior Class Play entitled 'The Campbells are Coming". We returned to S. C. H. S. this year as eager and enthusiastic Seniors.

Mr. Middlesworth, our able class advisor, has helped to push us on to a successful goal. We thank him greatly for the two years in which he aided our progress. And now, we must part. We regret having to leave good old S. C. H. S., and all our old schoolmates and acquaintances. We have learned much in our four years of excellent schooling, so with this knowledge we will go out and face the world with the ability to succeed.

With the aid of atomic energy, radar, rocket ship and Republican County Superintendent of Schools, of Shelby County Illinois inamely, W. H. Wilsonl-they shot off into space, piloted by that handsome daredevil of the ionosphere, Gene Hiatt. Gene needs no intro- duction because his courageous undertakings and breath-taking adventures have made front-page news from here to there and back again. But for the benefit of those people who cannot read, we are only too glad to announce that Heroic Hiatt's latest novel performance has been the remarkable feat of parachuting out of a plane without a parachute. He always lands on his feet. Hiatt's timekeeper Calso world-famed two-timerl, Joyce Hiatt, insisted on a plane with "twin" motors. Eimekeeper Hiatt announced that they would reach their destination within three ays. Herb Collins, popular radio crooner of W.D.Z., agreed to make a personal con- cert tour for the Martian barbarians. It is the current belief that the Good Neigh- bor Policy can be carried out with Mars through an understanding of national music. This is also the firm belief of our Democratic leader, President John T. Middlesworth. After all, look what the Conga has done for Pan-American relations. Herb plans to introduce the Martians to his latest dance called the "Humdrumba". To relieve the tension of the emigrants, Conductor Collins serenaded them with his swing version of "Pass the Biscuits". Immediately, Olive Krile, the able cook, came strutting down the aisle, throwing a rapid volley of biscuits at all seventeen passengers. Olive, you remember as the creator of the popular, platter- sized hamburger. She plans to open up chain restaurants on the planet. She has a long list of indentured waitresses back in the states, awaiting the call of the wild. These fortunate females will become the civilizing agencies in the new world. Already they are known as "The Krile Kids". The ship zoomed into Mars exactly on time. After Ruth Dearman had led the group in Fifteen Rahs for the two Hiatts, Lona Doehring leaped out-the first to set foot on the fiery red planet. She scorched her toe, so she changed her toeless sandles for a pair of clogs. As Emogene Kircher was a little homesick, she quickly looked for the Sun which was only 141,500,000 miles from Mars. As night descended, Dorothy Wilson, noted astronomer, observed through her trusty telescope the two satellites called Demos and Phobos. Miss Wilson has pre- dicted a rapid migration of people from Earth to Mars. These emigrants, she says, will represent the youth of the country. She states that the three moons, visible in a Martian sky, and all at the same time-offer undreamed of romantic possibilities. Meanwhile, back in little old New York, a startling news flash, coming direct from Mars, electrified the public. Tobe Kircher. with the aid of a race of super- men, had begun construction of irrigation canals. His extensive ditch-digging career between Strasburg and Stewardson has helped to prepare him for the great work which he has thus far so nobly advanced. Vera Ulmer, busy with drawings showing intersecting lines of great geo- metrical exactness on the planet, was planning to baffle her contemporaries by publishing her work. She was also aiding Tobe Kircher in figuring out just what should be irrigated. 6trasburg Community Wigh Qgchool - 1946 l Qhe Hourglass - Jeanne Bridges, pioneer female in engineering, hoped to span the huge canals ,with the latest thing in "bridges". This new phenomenon is an invisible bridge, designed so as to preserve scenic beautiy from unnatural mechanisms. June Robison, the well-known orator, planned to study the slanguage and ,dialects of 3Mars. Her career, she feels, depends on the mastery of the ,native speech..Her second intention is to run on the Republican ticket for ,Justice of the Peace-just as soon as she is able to explain to the Martians her political platform. . , . V Q , Butch Doehring'sl reason for trekking Marsward was to organize the Mars Athletic Association Cthe'MAAl. He intended to emphasize basketball-because of the vast possibilities for rebounding. You remember Butch Doehring as that re- markable lad who learned to make field goals before he learned to walk. Red Tull announced that she was to pursue ay scientificstudy of the red atmosphereon red hair. She recently concocted a new type of Shampoo, ,especially for redheads. It is known commercially as "Firewater". Miss Tull's close associa- tion lwith Betty White disclosed their intention of exploiting the movie possibili- tiesof the 'tBetty White Scandals". Miss White is at present, America's No. 1 Pin- Up Girl-so called because of her strange up-swing hair-do which requires only a single hair pin to keep it in place. i Ruth Dearman, disappointed in her latest love affair, hoped to put as much space as possiblelbetween herself and the man of her broken dreams. She also decidedto aid Clara'Mae Beals in the writing of her new novel-"Mars and the Man".VMiss Beals skyrocketed to Mars in order to obtain authentic local color. Gail Spannagel joined the company to sell subscriptions to the Poultry Magazine to any friendly Martians who would thus help her to get funds for her college educationL Miss Spannagelphas for the past few months been attending an exclusivepagricultural college in Death Valley, California, where she is major'- ing in poultry and minoring in alfalfa. f Bob Ragan had no choice but to become the eighteenth member of this dar- ing adventure. Because his family had reached unheard of proportions, and the housing situation in the states had grown steadily worse, Ragan departed, for Mars to become the first homesteader on the wonder-planet. His family will follow him at av later date. He has informed them quite recently that he has staked out fitaclaim in the western part of the country. His estate will be called the "Ragan anc o". A t ,Then trip is purely a colonial venture, a scientific experiment and a project ofexploration. The eighteen souls who have so courageously faced the peril of thepplanetsdeserve ,the highest praise. It' will soon be possible to contact this pioneer party through television. "The first in command, Gene Hiatt, broadcasis from Mars thirty times daily, sponsored by the 'Mars Candy Bars. Listen ing his yodeling commercials are something new in advertising. l 6trasburg Community jvfigh School - 1946 Qha Hourglass SENIOR CLASS POEM Four years ago in '42 The Freshman Class was quite a stew Their voices rang from door to door And no-one knew what was the score. Herbert Collins is a handy tool Around the good old Strasburg School. Tobias Kircher with eyes so bright Takes the Chevie each Sunday night. When P. E. comes he's right on the beam With his throttle open and plenty of steam Delbert Doehring who's tall and slim, Is usually found in the Dulling Gym. At basketball he's a pretty good shot, When it comes to girls he's on the spot. Now comes Bob, the farmer's son, Who keeps Myra on the run, In my opinion he's a pretty good boy And is made up of the real McCoy. - Lona is a slender dame At getting beaux she's won her fame. Emogene and Lona are always together Makes no difference what the weather. Francis is a little short But is never on the B. B. court. Now Gail's here and Gail's there, But never found in an easy chair, And Gail's as sharp as any tack, And's sometimes driving her father's hack Dot Wilson lives out on the bus route And for the boys does not give a hoot. But on over East is a little gal, When she sees a boy she raises a howl. She never lets one out of her sight And now you know it is Miss White. Now if you see a girl driving a Ford V You will soon know the girl's Jeanne. She comes to school in her brother's shirt And winks at boys and tries to flirt. Perhaps you've heard of the Ulmer lass Who doesn't worry if she will pass. Now we come to sister Joyce Who, of course, is my only choice. Clara Mae Beals is a little shy, But will make the grade if she will try. Dorothy June who is always rarin' Is very fond of Gene Von Behren. Olive Krile, as you know, Will surely find herself a beau. She studies hard the whole day long And merrily sings the "Honey Song." Farewell to good old Strasburg High, The Seniors bid you all good-bye. -Gene Hiatt iL QStrasburg Community High Qjchool 1946 Qhe Hourglass S J X, lr if X IUNIOR CLASS POEM I'll skip the introduction, Precise and to the point, And give you information From the good old Junior joint. We're proud of our attendance, For all that started, stayed, And since we've stuck together, We've a good example laid. To bring the first one into view, May I present Jean Lane? Although she is the smallest girl, She studies not in vain. Mary McPherson beats urs all In her fast typing speedy But when it comes to History Class, Ruth Hirtzel's in the lead. As far as Home Ec is concerned, Darlene wins the first place, For she can stitch, and mend, and cook, With confidence and grace. Ruth Bridges and Juanita Storm Can sing with voices skilled, Concerning dates, they worry none- Their nights are always filled. Lorena Bauer likes to joke And make her troubles lightg But Rosabelle Rosine is more Then sentimental type. Ramona Schlechte's next in line, And though she's far from thin- Some people take advantage-But In basketball she'll win. Marilyn Hiatt steps up next, Shestudies and she readsg And when it comes to arguing Sne takes her side and leads! The Reel twins add variety Their names Doris and Dot How they both love to roller skate- But then-Just who does not? Now Don and Pete bring up the rear, The two from the masculine line And everybody wonders- How they get along so fine! Well such is life-each person adds A different kind of style. But the Juniors owe their sure success To the ever-efficient, Miss Diel. -Doris Reel trasburg Community .High Qschool - 1946 Qhe ffiourglass - JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY ' Twenty-one Freshmen entered the beckoning doors of Strasburg Community High School, in the fall of 1943.

Qhe Hourglass H SOPHOMORE CLASS POEM We are the class of forty-eight The largest class in school, We know not that we will be great, Or just a simple fool. Dave we know by his standing hair- lt often looks quite rough. And Owen with her string of boys, She always has enough. Carol who often slures her "R's" ls timid and demure, While Rincker playing basketball Of shots is not so sure. Rex-ie in his overalls ls always dreading tests, Tate's always playing basketball, I 'spose he never rests. For temper you can go to Nippe- He often loses it, While Dwighty seems to slay the girls, He never makes a hit. Next comes Baby Dumpling- lt's only Two-Ton Fish. While George is just the opposite- He thinks he's quite a dish. And Alice T. who lacks a tooth ls 1he girl's top athlete. While Tim, our pleasant manager, Thinks Cowden girls are "tWeet." Well, Stuck's never stuck, it seems But always has a friend And Loraine's looking for "that" boy, The search will never end. Kermit can't make up his mind About his many girls, While Puff will never be that way lied rather chase the squirrels. Now Charlie is a little shrimp- lle's blond and very smallg Senteney's about the same in size- At least he was last fall. Next comes the flirty girl, Maxine, Who knows the Beecher boysg But Myra doesn't go that far, ltis Ragan she enjoys. Now Ruthy Buesking is quite shy, The same in spring and fall. Howard Wirth is about the same, He talks with a basketball. Next comes Rich, - the master mind- Who always gets straight A's. And chubby Dorothy Doeding Who likes Kerm Radloff's ways. Delbert Stremming with his grin is known both wide and far. While Kenny, who sits next to him, Plays tunes on his guitar. Miss Cruise, advisor of our class Who tries to keep us good. Is slowly going nuts with us, As anybody would. -The Sophomore Class QStrasbu1'g Community .Wigh School - 1946 Qhe Wourglass i - FRESHMAN CLASS POEM Although they say that we are green- That freshman always are- Who know what one among us all Shall swing u-pon a star? Dale Bauer's the 1'Blondie" of our class, And "Boneyard's" day dreams keep- Both him and guys like Franklin Kull From falling fast asleep. Noel is our honor boy- Ann Bridges is our queen- For popularity-Elaine. And Musqles-Forrest Gene. Trena's voice we love to hear At good old Windsor games! Lloyd Spannagel has trouble with The lovely little dames. "Shoat" Webner shines in basketball, And "Litch" shines on the nose. It takes a handsome senior lad To keep June on her toes. There's Warren when we want to yell, And Betty Ann to croon. There's Pieper with the basketball To play in League at noon. Roberta goes from book to book- With talent for the pen- While Betty Frede knows her verbs- With talent for the men. Bob Bridges makes the ladies sigh- And Mary we must thank For being so much nicer than Our little meanie, Hank. Corma is a Ragan, so She hasn't much to say- So unlike Tommy Ulmer, who Will make his talking pay. And little "C," let's not forget Can't help the shape he's in. Miss Bowman, who advises us- Will help us all to win. p -The Freshman Class trasburg Community jiigh Qschool 1946 Qhe Hourglass - FRESHMAN CLASS HISTORY On September fourth, twenty-three freshman entered the beckoning doors of Strasburg Community High School. Under the leadership of Miss Bowman, the Freshman Class became a very cooperative group, and splendid results were accomplished. The initiation of September fourteenth was purely dedicated to the em- barrassment of us green freshmen, but after enduring one day of this "frolical system", we were annexed as true members of good old S. C. H. S. Officers elected for our first year were: President, Thomas Ulmer, Vice President, Trena Kearneyg and Secretary-Treasurer, Forrest Gene Risser. Our two representatives on the Library Staff were Elaine Ulmer and Betty Frcde. Thomas Ulmer served us on the council and Warren Schlechte served the term as cheerleader. Other members of the class were: Dale Bauer, Ann Bridges, Bobby Bridges, June Buesking, Betty Ann Collins, Caryl Doehring, Bernard Doty, Roberta Hiatt, Franklin Kull, Carl Lading, Norma Jean Lichtenwalter, Noel Nippe, Martha Pieper, Corma Ragan, Lloyd Spannagel, Mary Stremming, and John Dale Webner. Our destination has been reached, since the year has come to a successful close, but we'll be back next year as sophomores-endeavering to gain more know- ledge within those doors of old S. C. H. S. Adieu! SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY We twenty-eight freshmen began our first eventful high school year on August twenty-eighth, 1944.

Miss Cruise was our Sophomore Class advisor. We were proud to welcome Rex Storm as a new classmate. Officers were: President, Kermit Radloff, Vice President, Robert Nippe, Secretary-Treasurer, Ruth Stuckemeyer. Kermit Radloff and Dwight Lading were our council members.

They were: George Terry, Robert N ippe, and Kermit Radloff. The year has rolled slowly by, and to us it has been a year of experience, filled with vivid memories that can never be erased. So, until we return as juniors, Farewell! 6trasburg Community High School - 1946 Qhe Hourglass - FRVESHMAN cLAss President-Thomas Ulmer Vice President-Trena Kearney Secretary-Treasurer-Forrest Gene Risser First Row-Dale Bauer, Ann Bridges, Bobby Bridges, June Buesking.

The youngsters, having heard of the big surprise and not feeling any too good about it, plan to upset the matrimonial apple cart by acting their worst before their prospective step-parents. One will have fits, another will talk baby talk, a third play the role of a holy terror. Samrnie becomse a kleptomaniac and worse, and Doris, having had an operation will harp on that. What a mix-up and what fun in the telling. After almost two hours of side-splitting laughter Agnes and Henry emerged victorious and the "kids" are ready to accept their new parents.

Robert Ragan CGiven on April 10 and 127 Aunt Samanthy Simpkins, a man-hating, eccentric old maid who owns a chicken farm, frightens all the young men away from her charming nieces, Serena and Sophie, who live with her. Serena is gradually becoming like her aunt, but Sophie rebels and starts something. She writes loves messages on some of the eggs being shipped and signs them "Miss Simpkinsi' Meanwhile, Polly, the hirded maid, buys some love powder from a fortune teller to whom she has con- fided that Buddy Baskins, the grocery boy, does not return her affections. She puts the powders in lemonade which she intends to offer Buddy, but Samanthy and Lucien Littlefield partake of the lemonade first. Then the hilarity starts-for the powders really work. You would never know Samanthy. Serena, too, imbibes and is a changed person. The climax of the fun is reached when Samanthy's two man- hating spinster friends drink some of the lemonade. They try to take Lucien from Samanthy. In the midst of this hilarity, Lawrence Lovewell, who has received one of the message-bearing eggs, arrives to make Samanthy his soul-mate. Finally, the complications are erased, and Aunt Samanthy becomes an ordinary person along with everyone else. DRAMATICS CLUB The Dramatics Club was organized under the direction of Miss Cruise. This club is for the students who are willing to partake in plays for entertainment. The club sponsored a play for the Carnival, and presented it in the history room.

On March twenty-second the Dramatics Club went to Mattoon to a theater party. The following officers were elected at the beginning of the year: President, Herbert Collinsg Vice President, Myra Engel, Secretary-Treasurer, Ruth Hirtzel. The enrollment this year was fifty-seven. -Strasburg Community High School - 1946 Q7he Hourglass xr Have you forgotten that you owe me S5?" "Not yet. Give me a little time, won't you?"

This game lasted only for two eight minute halves. It was a very close game all the way. Not until the final minutes did the juniors take the lead. SENIORS VS. SOPHOMORES The final game was a terrific battle between two outstanding teams. I believe I can truthfully say that the players displayed much more drive than they had all season. After a blood-curdling first half the sophomores led by 10 points. But from then on the real battle began. The seniors came back with scoring rally and at the same time held the sophomores down to 2 points. During the fourth quarter Ragan received his 5 fouls. But because the seniors had no subs he was allowed to remain in the game with a double penalty. In the final minutes the score teeter- ed back and forth. Then with a minute to go, Kermit Radloff was called for his fifth personal foul and had to leave the game. With less than a minute to go the seniors were two points ahead. But Howard Wirth dumped in a long 25 footer to tie the score. With seconds to go Butch pitched in a rebound to put the seniors ahead with the final score 52-50. The sophomores did not have enough time to stage a comeback. TOURNAMENT STATISTICS NAMES GAMES SA SM PCT. PF FTA FTM PCT. TP 1. Spannagel ..... ............. 2 1 1 1.000 0 3 2 .667 8 2.

The history room was turned into a sidewalk cafe, with spring blossoms adding the needed local color. Spirea and iris cascaded over trellises with an air of festivity. The walls were disguised as a Barber Shop, Tavern, Dress Shop, and Bicycle Shop. The theme for the banquet was old-fashion- ed-going back to the gay nineties. The radio-phonograph played gay ninety re- cordings as background music appropriate to the setting. Perhaps the most inter- esting change in this yearls banquet was the switch from waitresses to waiters. In the past our waitresses have always been elected from the Sophomore Class. We didn't break the tradition entirely, but this year, we chose boys-Kermit Radloff, Bob Nippe, George Terry, Dwight Lading, Delbert Stremming, and Rex Storm, all dressed in dark suits, white shirts with bow ties, dish towel aprons and handle-bar mustaches. Ruth Hirtzel, the Junior Class president, extended the welcome, and Dorothy Wilson, as Senior Class president, gave the response. After the usual banqueting, the group enjoyed a movie entitled "The Gay Desperado". The following song was composed by Miss Cruise to be sung to the tune of "Put Your Arms Around Me, Honey". Give us your attention, people-while we sing- Of the class of '46 now-on the wing- O, O, how we'll miss them all For they-won't come back next fall. Emogene and Lona will be-lost l'll bet Vera, then can concentrate-upon her "vet". O, O, what of Clara Mae? Will she have a lot to say? Gail, we will remember you were-on the beam- Herb Sinatra Collins made the-ladies scream. O, O, what of basketball? June and Dot answered to the call- Olive gone from history class and-Joyce as well- Teachers will be praying next year-for the bell. O, O, there'1l be no Jeanne- And no Betty White you'll see, How we'll miss that flash of red and-O, how dull Strasburg High will be without our-Francis Tull. And the Cardinals will seem- Strange with-our Butch on the team Then there's Gene our muscle-man and-poet, too- Tobe, who teases all the girls-He's-never blue So-for Ragan give a cheer- Gene, now with another year Here's to luck and happiness to-everyone Thanks for all the memories and-all you've done And we know that they're few- True blue friends like you!

The Freshmen were all seat- ed on the stage and each one had something to do. Singing and even calling the hogs were some of the requirements of them. The novelty acts were ended with "Miss Strasburg" as the well-known "C" Lading. After this the evening was spent by playing games. The evening came to a close with the serving of refreshments. The refreshments consisted of ice cream, pop, and cookies. The Freshmen left with the feeling of really belonging in Strasburg Community High School, and the other students had a good time, l'm sure. BOOSTER CLUB This club is made up of the most enthusiastic students in High School. Those who really go out and sell tickets for plays and season tickets for basketball games. These are the students who boost the High School to a higher standard. The first thirty-five students are as follows: Herbert Collins Ruth Hirtzel Betty Ann Collins Vera Ulmer Delbert Doehring Tobe Kircher Gail Spannagel Robert Nippe David Mulvaney Loraine Engel Martha Pieper Darlene Weber Myra Engel Kermit Radloff Ruth Stuckemeyer Richard Lading Marilyn Hiatt .

Donald Ruff . Mary McPherson . Wayne Kearney . Dale Bauer 18. John Dale Webner CARNIVAL This year again as in previous years S. C. H. S. put on a 'tbangu of a Hallowe'en Carnival. The gym was decorated in orange paper with black cats and witches prowling everywhere. The Clubs, F. H. A, Dramatics, and Art, sponsored the lunch room, play, and novelty counter. There were also various rooms of mysteries, fortune teller, and the pin ball alley. The big event of the evening was the crowning of the S. C. H. S. Queen and King. Ruth Stuckemeyer and Delbert Stremming were voted as Queen and King. The evening was ended with the Faculty Play which was filled with skeltons and spooks. This carnival really turn- ed out to be a big success. We took in a grand total of 3523.80 HISTORY OF S. C. H. S.

This is a story of Mr. Middles- worth's first hunting trip as told in the first person: The first bird I ever shot was a squirrel. The first time I hit him I missed him altogether. The second time I hit him 'twas in the same place. After that I took a stone and dropped him from the tree and he fell into the river and was drown- ed. And that was the first bird I ever shot. "What would you do if you married a rich woman?" "Absolutely nothing." "My husband thinks he's chang- ed a lot, but he hasn't." "How come?" "Well, he's always talking about what a perfect fool he used to be." These are the facts and I face them: Foods that are highly nutritious Too often are blessed with the nature Of tasting undelicious. 'tHave you and your boss ever had any difference of opinion?" t'Yes, but he doesn't know any- thing about it!" "I enjoy watching a cat-fight, don't you ?" "Yeahg they're right down my alley." "Do you think you are fit for hard labor?" the foreman asked an elderly job seeker. 'tl must be," replied the appli- cant, "some of the best judges in the country have thought so." For the first time little Ann saw a cat carrying her kitten by the nape of the neck. t'Shame on you!" cryed the child. t'You aren't fit to be a mama. You're hardly fit to be a father." Lecturer: Ulf I've talked too long, it's because I forgot my watch and there's no clock in this hall." Voice in back: "If you'll just turn around, there's a calendar on the wall just behind you? 'B' W K' 9 "Hey!" the electrician called to his helper, "put your hand on one of those wires." The helper touched one of them as he was told. "Feel anything?" HN0'17 "Good!" said the electrician.

Glmetryr The shortest distance between two dates is a good line. He was going home after dark. His road from the station was a lonely one, and he hurried along as fast as possible-even faster than possible when he realized he was being followed. He crawled under a fence and waded thru shrubs. He cut across a cemetery and circled a tomb on his hands and knees. At last he turned. "Why are you fol- lowing me?" he demanded. i'Well," his pursuer replied, 'Tm going to Mr. Bloom's house, and the station agent told me to follow you because you live next door to Bloom. Tell me-do you always go home this way?" June's father: f'Young man, we turn out the lights at 10:30 in this house." Tobe: "Gee, that sure nice of you, sir." Reader: "So you make up,these jokes yourself?" Editor: "Yes, out of my head." Reader: "You must be." Only 1 man in 1,000 is a leader of men. The other 999 are followers of women. Sonny Boy: "Mother, why did you marry father?" Mother: "So you've begun to wonder, too, have you?" Small Boy: "Shine your shoes, Mister?" Grouch: UNO!" Small Boy: "Shine your shoes so you can see your face in them?" Grouch: "No." Small Boy: "Coward!" -lstrasburg Community High Qschool - 1946 fd' DW A K Qhe ffiourglass - THANK YOU We wish to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to the following who helped make this Hourglass possible.

On January eighteenth a group of people on the annual staff were in- formed that if they were exempt from semester eexaminations they would be permitted to take a trip to Mattoon. We were to comb the town for ads and they tlaughinglyl asked us to return with not less than one-hundred dollars. Of course, they little realized just how great our capacities of salesmanship for should I say saleswomanshipl were. We had many exciting experiences which we related with great enthusiasm at the close of the day. First of all was the proposition of dividing ourselves into groups. We wanted one good, persuasive person in each group, if possible. Of course, everyone felt very talkative, so the eight of us divid- ed into four groups. Then came the problem of dividing the town into sections per group. Naturally we wouldn't want four different people running into the same store in one day and asking t'Would you like to place an ad in the Strasburg High School Annual"? This could grow monotonous to the store manager after he had been asked for about the third time. Then too, we had a list of merchants who were considerate enough to get their ads in early, and they certainly weren't to be pestered. Finally each group picked the desird two blocks and the hunt was well on its way. Several people had never heard of Strasburg timagine that! ll and if it hadn't been for our "good looks", I'm sure we would have been forcefully re- quested to leave. But this didn't happen too often and every second or third at- tempt always proved beneficial, so we were ebbed onward.-Just to show that it pays to read papers given to you for your own benefit, ask two girls how they felt when confronted with a person who had already placed his ad and these thoughtless individulas failed to notice it in due time-so they look the con- sequences. These I assure you were very mild, even to the point of receiving a gift out of the deal. - When noon came we had collected quite a sum of money. We then refueled ourselves and set out on the afternoon excursions. These were to last only long enough to allow us ample time to return to SCHS to go home on the bus. Of course, we were too busily engaged to think about this till. time had lapsed too far already. So, we headed back to SCHS and tincidentally we never did find Louie? with the neat sum of one-hundred dollars and fifty cents! ! ! Two weeks later this ambitious bunch of scalawags was sent to Shelbyville to again try out their 'fad-gettingn abilities. This time we were confronted with a very hazardous day. The weather man had decided to play against us. We didn't have any hair-splitting experiences that day-maybe we were too cold to notice if we did, but we did find a few people who would have liked to bargain with us. Such ideas I've never heard before-what if they had really meant it ! I At any rate a group of frozen icicles returned with the grand total of sixty-nine dollars, which added to the ads already in from Shelbyville, brought that total near one- hundred dollars, too. Our next venture was on to Effingham-and after going to a bank and de- manding that they "check a cash", we were well on our way. But it seems that Effingham has the funniest buildings. You start in a hotel, land in a cafe, leave the cafe and guess what? We're in the hotel again. Well, this expedition wasn't too "fruitful", but we came back with 3534.00 in our possession-Thus, a grand total of over 8200.00 was gained by these adventures. In addition to this we visited the stores and business places in good old Strasburg. Our attempts here were very successful in a more quiet manner, prob- ably due to the fact that we knew our way around a bit better. At any rate We'd like to thank all advertisers for the courtesy shown us at all times. Perhaps you'd 53 know the exact grand total of all advertisements, which amounted to 6trasburg Community fHiglfz Qjchool - 1946 Qhe jiourglass z -- Complete Home Furnishings GIB O Good Furn FURNITURE COMPANY MATTOON, ILLINOIS The Store Has ifufe A Renuwtion FOI' I-955 To lvforintain Ulmerrs Hatchery Renshaw's Grocery FOR Groceries - Cleaning - and Meats Baby Chicks Strasburg f ' Illinois Phone 108 Strasburg, Illinois E 9 Ulmer s Herman Garrett Cash Grocery SHELBY SERVICE GROCERIES - FRESH MEAT Gasoline and Gil EEQSQEOQIIEQQES Strasburg Illinois FRESH Enun-s - VEGETABLES Try the New Enriched DELUXE FLOUR llll'QStrasbu1'g Community fliigh Cschool - 1946 Qh giourgl THIEIQHEEQJQEEQ1 QQMEANY ' PAINTERS and CONTRACTORS SUPPLIES WaIIpaper,P t Gl d S d gS hum Ph 97 Biehler's Hatcheries For Better Chicks I Strasburg - - Mattoon Illinois Strasburg C nity .Wigh Qgchool - 1946 Qhe Hourglass "Known For Good Foodi' Mattoon 111111015 i For Good Recreation SKATE h at the Q S'l S IVGI' till' Wadle CO.

"Well, they keep my feet from going to sleep." I can never find my blotter No matter how I try, But futile searching serves to give The ink a chance to dry. 'tDidn't I hear the clock strike 2 as you came in, dear?" t'You did. my sweet. It started to strike 10, but I stopped it to keep it from waking you up." Spring is come The grass has riz I wonder where The flowers is. "Willie, prove the World is round." 'fl never said 'twas, teacher." "We celebrated with our car to- day." "Celebrated?" 'tYeah-had a blow-out." "Mom, do you think a person should be punished for something he hasn't done?" Ulf he hasn't cleaned off the porch as he was told to hours ago, he will be." 'tDaddy, what's a garden plot?" "Worms and bugs, my son, that plan on eating up our vegetables." "Did you fall down with your good pants on, Tommie?" asked mother. 'tWell, Mom, there wasn't time to take them off," replied Tommie. "What did you take at college?" "I took a course in husbandry." "Then why in thunder did they give you a bachelor's degree?" "Johnnie sure acts hard-boiled lately." "Well he ought to. His wife has kept him in hot water for the last two months." "I demand a refund on this suit of clothes. I've only worn it a month and already it looks rusty." "Well, didn't I guarantee it would wear like iron?', "Do you believe in capital pun- ishment?" 'tWel1, yes, if it's not too severe." 7 I L Two ants were racing at a great speed across a cracker box. "Why are we running so fast?" asked the first ant. "Don't you see-it says 'tear along this dotted line' " replied the second ant. "Daughter, who was that young man I saw hugging you last night?" "What time was it?" "Pop," queried Junior, "how do they catch crazy men?" 'fIt's easy," said Pop sourly, "a little rouge and lipstick, a hair-do and a pretty dress." Some owe success in life to luck, Some owe it to their mothers, Some owe it most to t'good" advice They didn't take from others. "If you'll give me your phone number, I'll call you up some time," said he. "It's in the directory," replied she. "That's fine! What's your name?" "That's in the book too." "I left my job because of illness." "What kind of illness?" "The boss said I made him sick." "Dad what are those holes for?" "They are knot holes, son." "Well, if they are not holes what are they?" Old Millionaire: "Will you marry me if I have my health restored?" Smart Girl, "You leave your health alone and I'll marry you." "Say, old man, did you hear about the fright I got at the school party?" "Oh, yes, I was there and saw her." It was a deathbed scene, but the director was not satisfied with the star's acting. 'tCome on now," he growled. "Put a little more life in your dying." 'tls there no hope, doctor?" Hlt depends, madam, on what you are hoping for." "Will we have a nice home after we marry, dear?" "Why, sweet, you're not figuring on moving, are you ?"
