WILLARD Among the Hnest memories of our school days we will remember our dear, kind, patient Mr. Willard. Who was more de- voted to our interests than he? Who did those hundred little daily acts of helpful kindness-answering our every call with unvarying patience and good humor? Mr. Willard was always there, a friend in time of trouble. While he was there giving faithful service to us, God was preparing a mansion for him, Where he in turn, should receive service. He has passed on to a greater life, but we who knew him, will keep his memory green in our hearts and long remember the steady glow of his gentle kindliness.

'Fownseml O The Board of Education The Board of Education this year is composed of John V. Patten, president: George A. James, secretaryg Louis J. Wal- rod, Norman -B. Westlake, Glenn R. Town- send, and William J. Fulton. For many years this board has worked together in complete harmony and cooperation. Al- though having provided the students, the building, and grounds with all proper equipment and necessities of a modern High School, they have been economical and conservative. The result is that the school tax rate has been for many years the lowest in the country. Especially should be mentioned the splendid work of George A. James, the secretary of the board. He has held this position ever since the organization of the Community High School, thirteen years ago. The present building was erected at that time largely through the efforts and supervision of Mr. 'James. Since then this man has been the anchor of the board, taking a deep interest in school af- fairs. We wish here to express our gratitude for the careful and painstaking work of the board.

I teach because I would be wise and wisdom find From millions gone before, whose torch I pass Still burning bright, to light the paths that wind So steep and rugged, for each lad and lass Slow climbing to the unrevealed above. I teach because in passing on the living flame That never dying burns the ages through, I have done service that is worth the name Can I but say, 'The lamp of knowledge grew A little brighter in the hands I taught! " -Louis Burton Woodward. This sentiment, discovered in the familiar black leather note-book which carried Miss Sipp1e's plans for the day's work, was chosen by her as a professional guideg exquisite in themselves, these lines reiiect the character we had grown to admire. A gracious pres- ence lingers in the Halls of S. H. S. as now and again we seem to hear her say: "If I can put one touch of a rosy sunset into the life of any man or woman, I shall feel that I have worked with God." Auf Wiedersehen, ROBERTA S. AMRINE.

Administration THE ADMINISTRATION in the Syca- more High School attempts to secure, with the least friction, the best ultimate good of the school. This includes record- ing, filing, recognition of excuses, keeping attendance records, as well as locker as- signmentsg correcting students who vio- late class regulationg writing ever increas- ing detailed reports for the State, our State University and North Central Asso- ciation filesg the preparation of contracts and eligibility listsg issuing certificates of credit and recommendations for Alumni and teachersg altering the course of study and adapting texts to changing methods and neighborhood needs: Then must be included the regulation of twelve extra- curricular organizations so ably sponsored by the faculty members. Much of all this is facilitated by the excellent clerical work of Mrs. Ella Townsend. On the faculty we have fourteen full time and five part time teachersg the lat- ter includes Superintendent Lease, Miss Miner, Miss Wollensak, Coach Shrout, and Miss Amrine. Of this faculty eight hold the degree of Bachelor of Artsg five are Bachelors of Scienceg one hold the degree of Bachelor of Philosophy, and two have Masters' degrees. We have added Public Speaking and Commercial Law to oiu' course of study, while pressure grows stronger each semester for a third year in Art. The High School has enrolled three hundred and forty-seven students this year. Of these there are one hundred and twenty-nine freshmen including sixty- three boys and sixty-seven girlsg eighty- four sophomores-forty-two boys and forty-two girlsg sixty-three juniors- twenty-three boys and forty girls and six- ty-seven seniors including thirty boys and thirty-seven girls. There were also two postgraduates and two special students en- rolled. Each class is organized and con- ducts its own activities through it officers and committees under the guidance of a teacher sponsor. This procedure applies also to all the other extra-curricular ac- tivities. In our school there are but few published rules to regulate conduct, but each is expected to contribute his part in """"'w . -. his own way to the good name of the school. The few regulations laid down di- rect an orderly and courteous conduct in the class rooms and assembly. Lock-step methods are discouraged, and the "hum of industry" is welcome, We have sixty-minute periods. This is the resourceful teacher's great opportun- ityg for a class period of this length gives time for more pupil participationg it pro- vides a chance for clarifying difiicult ad- vance assignments and for debate, drill and pupil reports. Moreover, the period includes twenty minutes of study in which a serious minded student can profit by be- ing in the presence of his instructor. This long class period has seemed to help fos- ter an exceptionally fine relationship be- tween teacher and pupil and so is partly responsible for the spirit of friendly co- operation and courtesy which our state inspector pronounced "quite ideal". The Alumni of the last few years will be interested to know of some of the teachers: Former Supt. O. E. Peterson is now head of the department of Education in Teachers College, DeKalb, Illinois. Miss Lucille Harrison is instructor in the Teachers College at Greeley, Colo.g Miss Ruth Stegner, now Mrs. Hope Horman, is mother of a charming daughter, Patriciag Miss Gertrude Zimmerman, now Mrs. Joyce Lehmann has a son John David, soon ready for Kindergarten. Both fam- ilies reside in Naperville. Miss Cordelia Olmstead is teaching in the Chicago sys- tem: Miss Anna Potter has been winter- ing in California after giving some years to the rearing of her brothers baby daugh- terg Miss Helen Zimmerman, now Mrs. Raymond Veh, resides in Cleveland: Miss Helen Wiedey has been in charge of the organization of educational work in the St. Louis Y. W. C. A.g Miss Doris Brigham is teaching in Berkely, Michigang Miss Abba Harrington resigned to care for her invalid mother. We believe that among one of these names will bring to mind happy incidents as well as moments of inspiration to our Alumni.

D., a goodly group of lusty young Socks en- tered the dinghies which brought them to the good ship "High School" which lay riding at anchor in the harbor of Syca- more. Despite the calmness of the sea, some of the Socks turned back, evidently frightened by the shadow cast by the big ship. However, most of the socks kept on and clambered over the sides of the vessel, right glad to feel the firm deck under foot. Despite the friendliness of the officers and people on board, they decided that We Socks must undergo .tests to prove our hardihood and our ability to stand the long sea voyage. These tests were of var- ious natures, such as ducking us in the swimming pool to get us acquainted with the salt Water, making us walk the plank to see Whether we had the correct sa,i1or's stride, climbing the ladders to prepare us for the first thrilling ascent of the masts, rolling dust on our already sore backs, so that we might readily learn to scour the decks with sand, going through the thorn bushes on Rose Island to prepare us for the pangs of sharks teeth and fins if un- happily, we fell overboard in sha.rk-in- fested waters Without rapidly being rescued. When we had passed these tests suc- cessfully we decided that it might be Well for us to organize a union of Socks.

It was decided that George Dean should be our leader and that Bruce Smith should assist him. Russell Carlson was elected to collect the brass farthings for we knew that his training as cheer leader would make it easy for him to cast over the taffrail all that did not pay at first request. ' Then We decided to test the efficiency of our newly elected crew and stage a party. We chose "All Saints Eve" since we knew that at least one saint would protect us from outside attacks. Our patron guide, Miss Reinhart, called the class ofiicers together and started them at work. On Hallowe'en night the Socks assembled on the main deck and made ready to be right merry. Sounds of revelry were soon heard, drowning the swish of the waters. Finally, the Socks made hungry, due to the num- erous activities in which they had taken part, were served with Ships Biscuits, Lime Juice, and Duff Pudding. Then, well content, they rolled onto their "Donkey's Breakfast." ' After the party, all was fair sailing un- til a number of Socks contracted Beri- Beri, but the strong medicine tSemester Exams? cured all but a few. Sadly, and with many lamentations, these were low- ered into "Davey Jones" Locker. Again a long voyage of calm, broken only by a few slight storms such as the Carnival, Spring Vacation, The Basket Season, the Operetta, and the Final Exams. Suddenly we sighted our goal, Sophomore Island, ahead, and with much joy We dropped anchor and made ready to explore this new land. BERNARD BODEEN. OTTO B. HAMMERSMITH.

And here is one, when all's said and done, Who for sweetness can't be beat, Sophomores all say when they see Guyla Gray, "Now isn't our secretary neat?" There at the aft of our sturdy craft, We see our gay Johnny O, All suffer dunnage, when he collects tonnage, He's had a fine time we trow.

The Passage of the Good Ship . Sophomore The Sophomore Ship sails on the Ocean, Heigh-ho, boys, blow! Her silver masts they roll with motion, Blow, Sophomore, Blow! NOW 'twas in the year of our Lord, Nineteen Hundred and Twenty-nine, that eighty-live vigorous looking seamen did step aboard the good Ship Sophomore, bound for Junior Land. Impatient indeed were they to start the hard but enjoyable journey. Joyfully assisting in hoisting the t'Blue Peter" and in weighing and catting the anchor, they were rewarded by seeing the ship move out toward the open sea. 'Twas soon decided that the crew must choose its officers and that its members must sign "Ship's Papers" to join various activities on board. Miss Jordan was ap- pointed Skipper, Henry Parke, First Mate, Gene Harney, Second Mate, John Ovitz, Third Mate, and Guyla Gray, Purser. "Keeping a good offing" the ship made rapid progress. While the weather was fine our masters did keep us busy at the "Spunyarn" of Daily Assignments. The sea was so smooth that few did succumb to the mutual attack of Study Sickness. Sam Mabel, Henry Parke, Clifford Teach, George Hettrick, and Ray Ulery climbed the "Jackstays" to Footballg while the rest of us cried "Heave and Paw1" for encouragement. By this time we were well in the "Cape Horn Greybeardsw and here due to "Heavy Seas" a few sailors did "slip their moorings." Glad indeed were we, when December 14, we sighted Party Island. Here we stopped to give a party to our entire crew and to the sail- ors in port who had previously served on our vessel. Right heartily did the crew prepare for the big event. Never before was the main deck so beautifully decorated.

Sixth Bell of the Second Dog Watch did sound, we made ready to dance. Our Or- chestra was made up of foreign sailors from DeKalb. Zounds! How some of our jolly tars did trip it. Then in the midst of our merriment Mr. Santa Claus and the Snow Queen did arrive. Certes, but 'twas strange they knew our where- abouts! Certain of our crew were pre- sented with fitting gifts, which they in their innocence did consider jokes. But the rest of our crew and our visitors were not forgotten, for all did receive clever favors which had been made by the pa- tient hands of the Sophomore Committee. Finally our Skipper did give orders that all visitors must leave since we must again set sail. Deeper and deeper we did penetrate in- to unknown waters. Elmer Bowers, Henry Parke, Sam Mabel, and John Ovitz were made Basket Ball Look-outs. Again we sang our chanteys to encourage them. After the excitement of the holiday sea- son little did we lusty seamen suspect '-'ci -A-bs" " .5 -- ' i that we were about to face a terrific squall, the Semester Examinations. However, by "sailing close to the wind" most of our worthy Crew did survive. Only a few, frightened by the storm and not wishing to weather another, 'iswallowed the an- chor" at the next port we touched. Now again a long period of "Ordinary Tricks", broken only by such Gales as the Carnival, in which We sailors did have a rollicking good time, the Operetta, Spring Vacation and Alas, the Final Examina- tions! Suddenly our Look-out did cry "Land Ahead! Land Ahead!" And of a certainty we saw that our ship had left the surging seas and was entering the Calm waters of Junior Harbor, The scene before us was so inviting that we decided to stop here. Sadly did we part from those few who found it necessary to go back on the old Ship but soon we did for- get our sadness in the joyous anticipation of the new adventure which lay before us.

We are rather modest violets, And dislike to blow our horn, But we truly feel, the Juniors Are the finest ever born. Miss Hulbert is our Sponsor, And a helping hand she'1l lend, For she seems to sense the moment When a 'Teller needs a friend." Molander is our President, We dub him "Doc" or "Red", He's genial, and he's witty, And he's musical-'nuff sed'. Bill Warren is Vice-President, His parents call him Will, He is quite a iinished actor, And may sometime head a bill. Holmes blows a Wicked trumpet, And he handles all our cash, He surely knows his bakery goods, And sells them with a dash. Bur Bnunke keeps our records, She's athletic, full of fun, And is quite a general favorite, In the Class of Thirty-One. Oh! we've loved these years of learning, Days of joy, and days of woe, When we didn't know our lessons, But to school we had to go. And the faculty-God bless 'em. How they worked with smile and frown. Kept our mental ship a-sailing, When it threatened to go down.

For We Are Sailors All HIP-A-HOY! Yo! I-Io! Merry Men! X Man the decks for we are fast ap- proaching "The Close of Our Junior Year." 'Tis a first rate cruise we've had. Eh! What? Men! We've all been bold sailors and me thinks we deserve a promotion. I rather hate the idea of leaving the old ship though and I guess that goes for most of us. We've had lots of good times here. First-mate Warren, go seek Skipper Mo- lander, arouse him from his "Harmonica Blues" and ask him for the ship's log, for we of the crew would fain review the great events of our past. Hurry ye, don't move like a land lubber. The Skipper's a jolly fine fellow, so he'll grant ye the log. Be gone! What ho, my men, it's a mighty pity all our old pals aren't here to enjoy this now sixty-two on board, there were about twice as many when we started on the jaunt back in '2'7. Am I right? Here comes Bill with the ship's log. What's this, he's brought the Skipper with him. Let's drink a toast to Skipper Molander-. Whoa, my lads steady, don't drink much more. You are already 'half-seas over.' Now let us consult our log. Sure, I was right, it was September 7th, '27 when we set sail. There were one hundred and thirteen of us then. It was the rough weather and the hard sailing that got most of the pals we've lost. Remember the good time we had at the iirst port we stopped at in '2'7? It was just a few nights before Halloween. We did everything in hallucination that night. I-5...N-,A ,-,.,g, talk of good old times. Let's see, there are Then nothing happened for over a year, .

About December 23, '28 We stopped at a big port and entertained the whole town Cthanks to Miss Hulbert? Remember? What ho! my lads we haven't done a thing of worth since then. But wait, I am Wrong, we've done one truly big thing and that was making Donald Holmes Second-Mate. "Sleepy" also keeps all our money. I think we ought to pause right here and thank Sailor Bernice Brunke for keeping the ship's log in such a first rate condition. Sailor Brunke reports that most of our time has been spent making money for the big party We're going to give for "The Old Timers" when we reach the next port which ought to be around May 3. There are a few other things here in 'f' Av , the log that might be mentioned. The strongest of our number did their best to help the port of Sycamore defeat their enemies in three big battles: Foot-ball, Basket-ball, and Track. They certainly did lay the enemy low at the battle of Basket-ball. We had a big gala day at one port on April 4th. Everybody sang, danced, and laughed. Such performances only happen "Once in a, Blue Moon." Well, sailors, we've another year left, in which to enjoy ourselves on board this ship before we finish our trip. It's been a pleasant journey so far. Eh! What? VVhat's that? Eight bells! Time for us to roll in. One more toast to Class of '31 "For we are Sailors All." Good night! You sailors bold.

B. Shrout on September 3, 1929, and fifty men answered his call for volunteers on the field of athletics, About twenty-live percent of these were major letter men, and the prospect looked favorable as the line of enthusiastic candidates were assembled, eager to show their knowledge of the fundamentals of action on the gridiron. As Sycamore Community High School athletic held was still in an unfinished con- dition, intensive practice was begun at the Sycamore Community Park Held. With a line averaging over 153 pounds, the chief problem was to develop a fast and delib- erately clever backfield. Coach Shrout, with his characteristic determination, took charge of formation Work and stren- uous organization, as rapidly as possible, so that a grid eleven might be whipped into shape in preparation for a busy sea- son of keen competition among Little Seven pigskin artists. The end of the season found Dr. Foot- v 1--N, .. . ball presenting Sycamore Heavyweights with third place in the Little Seven Con- ference, with four victories and two de- feats. They were also victorious in one non-conference game with Rochelle and losers to DeKalb and Rochelle. Wheaton High School completed her second unde- feated year in the conference. Geneva received second honors. The Shroutmen ranked next in third place. Naperville ended in fourth position. St. Charles, Dundee, and Batavia each reaped one vic- tory to occupy the lower bracket. The Gipson proteges in their lightweight final standing were tied for second place with Naperville, with five wins and one defeat. The defensive engine of the pony grid express led by Swedberg, Cliffe, Rog- ers. Caldwell and Read had a most credit- able season. Sycamore met defeat against Rochelle at Rochelle in the first game of the season, 9 to 0. This defeat only inspired Syca- more to greater impetus in practice for the return game with Rochelle.

' Y I' 4 --s v 1 it-W' 'ST fables were neatly turned in this game and good work on the part of Russell and Eus- tace, who netted two and three touch- downs each, caused Rochelle to return home a vanquished foe-38 to 0. For the opening game in the Little Sev- en Conference, Sycamore drew the most aggressive team of the conference, when they journeyed to meet Coach Stenger's strong outfit. While our boys put up a game battle in this encounter, their ef- forts W-ere ineffective against the powerful Wheaton contingent and Sycohi lost 34 to 7. The last five minutes of play was ac- companied by rejuvenated Sycamore of- fensive ability and a well destined pass from "Eddie" Eustace to Waterman gave Sycamore a touchdown and the extra point by the same play combination. A well prepared Geneva Eleven invaded local territory and were successful in ob- taining a second Sycamore football scalp as they had done in 1928. The Purple and Gold machine lost a 19 to 6 contest, after legitimately outplaying their opponents when the gun sounded at the half. Home scoring came in the last quarter when Quarterback Maveus carried Eustace's pass over the goal. After scrimmages with St. Albans and a week of vigorous practice and strenuous training, the Shroutmen were determined to arise from the lethargy of former games and redeem the defeats they had suffered, by victory in the Naperville bat- tle a week later. That a new era of foot- ball had dawned for Sycamore was evi- dent when the final whistle found Syca- more registering a 31 to 0 triumph in the athletic ledger. With a swift passing at- tack that completely baffled the Naperville back field, the Sycohi grid representatives played their best game of the season thus far and netted their introductory confer- ence win. Sheley and Boies led their five line friends with ability. Encouraged by their victory over Naper- ville the S. H. S. squads, with a dash of genuine football, which enabled our boys to net two touchdowns in the first half against Batavia a week later, brought de- feat to the Wind Mill City lads by a 13 to 0 count. Coach DeLacey's Dundee team was de- feated by Sycamore's swift passing aerial sg ev ,,e,R.,-,X,,.,,..,, -- 15.4, g , J--5 ,-,-, ,Q e1gQ' nlc i :ea attack, 7 to 0, when a. beautifulH20 yard pass from Eustace to Maveus in the sec- ond quarter fulfilled the requirements of a touchdown. Eustace place kicked for the extra counter. Court, Dolder, Stark and Maeser served admirably in the line, while Russell and Conley fought effective- ly when going through with the oval. Football relations with DeKalb were re- sumed this year after several years of abandoned activity, the schedule calling the Sycamore-DeKalb game at the Barb City gridiron. The age-old rivalry be- tween the two cities made the game a spirited contest, but the DeKalb players outweighed and outplayed the local eleven and DeKalb claimed victory, 14 to 0. De- Kalb netted 14 first downs and Sycamore completed four. In the last quarter Con- ley, Russell and Maveus performed lengthy drives and Eustace made several gains. Quarterback Russell, who has real football spirit, was outstanding as a de- fensive man throughout. The final game of the 1929 season was also a conference game with St. Charles at that city and resulted in a 7 to 6 vic- tory for the Shroutmen. The inability of Potts, line plunger of St, Charles, to make the extra point gave Sycamore the nar- row but conclusive margin of one point for a victorious football finale. Sycohi's touchdown resulted after a wide end run by Eustace, behind perfect interference, just before half time. He successfully kicked the ball over the bar for the extra point. . Many outstanding grid veterans played their last games under the Purple and Gold at St. Charles. Nine out of eleven of the first squad will graduate in 1930. These men, in addition to the graduation lightweight members are: Boies, Court, Dolder, Stark, Waterman, Eustace, Mav- eus, Sheley, Maeser, Russell, Rogers, Swed- berg, Cliffe, Caldwell and Read. Those placed on the Little Seven hon- orary teams were Waterman, who tied with Sheafe of Batavia for left end on the first eleven, and Boies, who secured the right tackle berth on the second team. Stark and Eustace were given honorable mention as tackle and halfback. OWEN A. RESCH, '30, W. --'- -f-f - - ---- 3 -'-- Page Thirty-eight ,Za- ay Z iz? -I qqv: A' :.. 5 ' . f 'N , ,.,, I.

Y Y I Heavyweight Basketball Sportfolio LD MAN Prophecy greeted the S. C. H. S. basketball season of 1929-30 with an auspicious glance and an optimistic twinkle in his eye, for Coach Shrout had established a mighty reputation for him- self by the winning teams he had created in the past two years. It was evident that prophetic visions of success were realized when the co-nclusion of the season found the major cage men registering on their scale of action twenty-two consecutive victories, including twelve conference wins. An exceptionally brilliant season of play had annexed another Little Seven Cham- pionship T1'ophy for our Sycohi hall of fame. A tentative line-up was tried the first of the season, but soon a permanent squad was selected, with positions as follows: Waterman, forward 5 Boies, centerg and Maveus, running guardg all Veterans of the 1929 quintetg Maeser, forwardg and Stark, back-guard, both members of last year's champion Lightweight team. The boys displayed splendid teamwork, ac- curate passing, speedy floor play, in fact, superior cooperation in the prime factors of cage action. The first game was played with Maple Park, Sycamore winning by the one-sided score of 35-6. The initial Little Seven contest was with Batavia. The Shrout basketeers rallied in the last half, and turned what at first seemed like a close game into an easy victory-27 to 19. In the first home conference game, S. I-I. S. early convinced St. Charles of her suprem- acy, the score standing 24 to 12 in favor of the locals. Tremendous interest centered in the contest with Harrison Tech, 1929 cham- pion of Chicago, but Sycamo1'e experienced little trouble in reaping a 24 to 18 victory in this outstanding game. Four more de- cisive triumphs were added to an un- broken string of victories at the DeKalb Holiday Tournament. Our local quintet staged a speedy come- back in the last half in the conflict with Dundee, and won 23 to 11. Waterman was high scorer, with 4 field goals and 3 free throws. 1. t . - . . i 'lf' .'J"a'-1 --lf - - Q f " Q5 A "'fL3.fg:aei.. 22" Page Forty-mic ci 1 ' I V .,'X S. E M. .111 V H .Qlg .i-,..,sc--,..- lie -uQ.rslf.lgggg1..f 9-317 The following night, Captain Boies, ac- companied by an enthusiastic crowd of school fans and townspeople, led his team to a 12 to '7 victory over DeKalb. The Barbs led at half time, 3 to 2. The sensa- tional scene of the evening developed when DeKalb made no effort to take away the privilege of Sycamore's spectacular stall- ing game, which was neatly handled by Min Stark, in the closing ten minutes of play. Naperville was the eleventh victim to meet downfall from Sycamore. In quest of another cage victory, the Shroutmen journeyed to Wheaton, where a colorful tilt ended in a 22 to 18 score in favor of Sycamore. Our Purple and Gold cagers played polished basketball, Boies leading in scoring by 8 points, Maeser and Water- man next by 7 each. The principal bar- rier in Sycamore's titular march had been removed by this defeat-also, the first vic- tory over Wheaton in two years. Sycamore took the next opportunity to speed their forward march toward the Little Seven title by downing Geneva 43 to 15 and Batavia 30 to 8. Accurate pass- ing and consistent basket shooting were powerful factors in the local aggregation. Control of the cage situation gave Syca- more a 46 to 15 advantage over St. Charles. The Kane County lads were outclassed and outplayed in every phase of the game, which resulted in the fifteenth victory for the Sycohi quintet. The old basketball rivalry between De- Kalb and Sycamore was again settled be- fore a capacity crowd when the baton swung "over the top" in Sycamore's favor 34 to 13. Boies held the honors for high score with 15 points, while Maveus fol- lowed with 8 points. Sycamore's seventeenth victory! So the sport pages continued to chronicle victor- ies for Coach Shrout's proteges. They' furnished the cage fans one of the great- est thrills of the year by defeating the clever Dundee basketeers 29 to 22. The score was tied five times. Maeser, flashy Sycamore forward, added the dramatic touch, which gave the local five another Little Seven win, with 4 baskets and 2 free throws. Action was resumed along the cage frontier in DuPage County when Syca- more returned home from Naperville with a 41 to 16 victory stored away among their conquests. An excursion over to Genoa resulted in victory, number nineteen, for Sycamore. While Genoa had a good, scrappy team, the County seat boys regu- lated the game in their own way and it almost required a score keeper with wings to attain the speed necessary to count the 40 to 23 advantage for the locals. It was a big moment when the Sycohi majors won the closest game of the sea- son from the strong Wheaton contingent. Captain Jen's quintet made every effort to shatter Sycamore's enviable record of nineteen victories in their second meeting of the year. Sport fans witnessed a fast and furious battle, the score standing 18 all about one and one half minutes before the final whistle, when that diminutive and flashy running guard, Maveus, per- formed the heroic act with a long shot that mounted the score 2 points for vic- tory. One half the S. H. S. score-10 points-was the gift of Maveus to this glorious achievement of his teammates. In their farewell tour of triumph in Little Seven contests, Sycamore settled the issue with Geneva, 30 to 12. This was their twenty-first victory and twelfth con- ference win. After the regular season, positively the last public appearance of these mighty followers of the hoop was the tilt staged with the Alumni Stars, the Shroutmen being victorious 21 to 8. Thus, the conclusion was marked of an- other brilliant and successful record of basketball activity. May the fair play and clean sportsmanship displayed by the teams of 1930 be an incentive to our fu- ture cage artists. The ranks will be sadly depleted by graduation, Boies, Stark, Mae- ser, Waterman, Maveus and Sheley, as well as most of the second team, having played their last game for their Alma Mater. OWEN A.

While they did not achieve the championship record of 1928-29 Little Seven lights, they were an everlasting ob- stacle in the way of the other contenders for conference honors and finished cred- itably in third place. There was little competition to conquer in their first game with Maple Park, Syc- amore winning 36 to 3. Coach Shrout's ponies entered their first Little Seven tilt with Batavia, and the final count was Sycamore, 24-Batavia, 8. This easily con- vinced the opponents that our minors were on the map to play basketball. Bow- ers played a great game as forward with 8 points, and Court's defensive work was pronounced first class and continued to be a consistent factor all season. Those who rated the main line-ups were: Cline, Bowers, Harris, Henigan, Rogers, forwards: Sheley, centerg Court, Eustace and Moudry, guards. The light- weight role was constantly shifting and while there was never an abundance of reserve material, the candidates were an alert and aggressive group. St. Charles came to the county seat to conquer, but returned home to their Fox river homes a vanquished foe, as a result of a 17 to 4 defeat. Cliffe held high score with 4 field goals. Defeat first confronted our happen- stance ponies when they met the formid- able lights from Harrison Tech of Chi- cago. It was not without a struggle that Sycamore was eliminated from the vic- tory line in the last few minutes of play 14 to 13. For the iirst time in two years, the light- weight basketeers lost a Little Seven home contest, Dundee controlling the cage sit- uation in a slow-breaking game 12 to 10. In the annual visit to the Barb City, De- Kalb was taken into camp with a 23 to 15 advantage in Sycamore's favor. Ev Sheley held high score with 10 points. The re- turn tilt with DeKalb was also a local vic- tory. The schedule next sought Naper- ville as cage adversaries, in a fast and fur- ious battle. Sycamore's loss was Naper- ville's gain by the narrow margin of 11-9. Wheaton fell an easy victim to Sycohi 16 to 7. Misfortune was on our trail, even in victory that night, for Laddie Moudry sustained a broken nose while playing a great game at guard. That fact, together with a stalled bus on the return trip at 25 below the zero hour, were enough to dampen spirits for sometime, but the youthful cagers rallied in splendid style and treated Geneva to defeat the follow- ing evening,-the first defeat for the Ge- neva seconds. Batavia minors took a 9 to 7 score from Sycamore in a fierce tussle, although the lights had won from them earlier with a one-sided score. Victory was on our side in the second tilt with St. Charles, the final count being 15-7, with the Syca- moreans on top. Dundee lights annexed a 14 to 12 victory over the local minors in a hard fought game with an overtime period. Another heart-breaking struggle left the Naper- ville boys a 12 to 11 win. However, the last of the season found the minor Shroutmen flashing forward with three victories over Genoa, Wheaton, and Geneva. An extra game was added to their schedule when they defeated the Prospects of 1931 by the score of 8 to 6. The Lightweights, besides fighting their own battles, were invaluable as the relief squad for the Heavyweights. Graduation will claim Eustace, Cliffe, Rogers, Court, and Sheley, but promising material will develop in the personages of Henigan, Moudry, Harris, Parke, Smith, Mabel, Dooley, Bock, Ovitz, Hettrick, Kellman, Burchfield, Boyle, Dunmore, and Stearns.

"Min" demonstrated real fighting spirit, when he tactlully stopped the opposition en- route to the hoop. Sorry, cage fans, Stark bids au revoir. EVERETT SHELEY This true sportsman successfully acquired the ability to control the tip-off. As a slim, flashy center, "Eve" greatly aided his com- panions in keeping possession of the ball regularly. Sheley was ar cool individual when he was a member of either the heavy or lightweight team. His wide-awake service assisted in much spectacular scoring for Sycohi. "Ev", as well, has ended his athle- tic career for S. C. H. S. ORRIN MAVEUS "Still water runs deep", so modesty finds rr place for itself in the personage ot' Maveus, that flashy, diminutive running guard, whose clever floor play brought forth much com- mendatiou. Alert, yet unassuming in his co-operation, "Ornie" easily convinced op- ponents much his superior in stature, of his greater defensive tactics. He, too, terminates his basketball services for his Alma Mater. ROBERT MAESER "Bob", the rangy left forward, has played but one year with the major cage men, but, he has certainly demonstrated qualities which put him in the winner's class. His "dead shots" at the hoop in apt situations proved a ever present help in closely contested games. Graduation will claim him this year. His rangy prowess will be missed very much in athletic circles. EDVVARD BOI ES The "Daddy of the team" has controlled the "center post" most admirably for three years. He established a name for himself by his famous "follow-through" tactics, also as a one-handed artist with his short tip-in shots. Many honors have come to Boies in his four years. Ed's position will he hard to fill, as he is a member of the Class of 1930. JOHN VVATERMAN "Bruzz" was one of the fastest star fora wards ever produced at S. C. H. S. His high spirit, which enabled him to start his teammates oi? on the right foot with speedy action, proved an invaluable asset to the major quintet, Statistics show John to hold high scoring honors for the past season. He ',f will be greatly missed, as he, too, graduates in June. ' Q s get l Q Cs . ..... - ...,. . ...,,, V - .... :1:.zLj"' '-'f ft' ..,. -3- .

His speed and endurance will make him an expert forward at cluding his opponents. As the "eagle eye" of the Hcnigan "family tribe" has functioned prominently in past basketball activity at S. H, S., so it is a safe wzrger that it will not falter in 1931. LADIMIR MOUDRY It is with some satisfaction that the return of "Lacldie" for next year's team is chroni- cled With the loss of so many by graduation, Moudry looms brightly in the foreground as a brilliant prospect for future cage action. His agility, combined with his characteristic vigilance and caution will make him a strong contender for 1931 defensive honors. LESTER HARRIS "Les" has served consistently as a quick and invaluable second team forward. With Henigan, he should carry the brunt of next year's attack against Sycohi's rivals. He will return for another season with n 100W light spirit and will, undoubtedly become a troublesome partisan against the foe in ques- tion by his ready scoring power. JAINIES CLIFFE "Jim" was the skilful and elusive dribbler of the minor squad. As an able, speedy for- ward, he became an active participant in the strong co-operative teamwork used by the lightweight Eve. Cliffe was slight in build, but Hashy in action when casting the ball through the net. He will he lost to further athletic activity by graduation. ARTHUR COURT "Art's" record of achievement for S. C. H. S. has been enviable in its entirety. Whether it were his splendid spirit oi fair and square sportsmanship, or his consistent and power- ful aggressiveness that were needed, Court rated high, As n steady and dependable back guard, it will be difhcult to till his stone-wall post. Sycohi will be hard hit by "Coopers" graduation. EDWARD EUSTACE For two seasons at Sycamore High, "Eddie" H' hasldisplayecl his skill as an athlete of keen , ability.

DeKalb Holiday Tournament FOLLOWING closely in the footsteps of Christmas cheer, December 26, 1929 witnessed the opening of the second an- nual DeKalb Holiday Invitational Tourna- ment, sponsored by the Varsity Club at Northern Illinois State Teacher's College for three days. Sixteen schools were rep- resented in this competition for cage prominence. The Shroutmen met Mount Morris the first afternoon of the cage meet. Syca- more attained an ea1'ly advantage, Boies, rangy center, leading the scoring by 6 points in the first quarter. The second team was substituted and completed the two sets of irnpregnable defense started by the majors. The final score was: Syc- amore, 255 Mt. Morris, 6. The Sycohi hoopsters entered the sec- ond round of the tourney to meet Ro- chelle. While the Hub City lads had nosed out Sycamore in the finals of the year before, the neat teamwork and ac- curate shooting of the local cagers made this tilt tell a different story, Sycamore, 34-Rochelle, 16. Hinckley next fell before the onslaught of the Shrout adherents. The score indi- cated only mediocre success, 10 points on the part of Hinckley to touch Sycamore's stride of 25 points. Sycohi featured an early lead of 8 to 6 over Elburn in the first quarter of the finals. The offensive tactics of the Purple and Gold quintet were met with a short- passing, long-shooting outfit that at times threatened to become uncomfortable. Our majors put up a good fight, however, and won over Elburn 18-14. So, our tournament squad had gained prestige for their unfaltering spirit of victory and earned another championship trophy for their Alma Mater. Leland Strombom, President of the Varsity Club, presented the "Cup of Honor" to Captain Ed. Boies, who, in turn passed it to Coach Shrout. By virtue of their performance through- out the tournament, Maveus, guard, and Boies, center, were given honorary posi- tions on the all-tournament team. Mae- ser and Stark were given positions on the all-tournament second team, while Water- man 1'eceived honorable mention. DeKalb District Tournament IF RIP VAN WINKLE had been sleeping at the opening of the annual District Tourney, held at DeKalb March 6, 7, and 8, he surely would have roused from slum- ber, when he heard the clamor and ex- citement of the maddening crowds, lured by the call of the cage hunt. Fifteen teams, representative of their various schools, competed in this basket- ball meet, the winner continuing to the Sectional tournament at Joliet. Sycamore won that honor, both in 1928 and 1929, and was again picked as a favorite to win on the strength of its record of twenty- one consecutive victories. Sycamore met DeKalb in the last game of the evening, March 6. The prestige ac- corded Coach Shrout and his team was evidence, indeed, of the confidence of friends. Vlfhile not a spectacular game, the usual spirited contest with our rival followed, the Purple and Gold being vic- tors-19 to 8. Maeser stepped into power with 8 points, Boies second, with 6 points. By virtue of the victory over the Barb City lads, Sycohi met the fast aggrega- tion from Waterman High school in the second round before a record-breaking crowd. In an upset that shook the very foundation of the basketball world, the local contingent suffered a 13-5 defeat at the hands of the Waterman quintet. Both lives displayed a swift passing attack and an impregnable defense. But, it was Syc- amore's inability to send the ball through the hoop that gave our boys the first slap of misfortune this season. Our players faced the odds with their usual game spirit. Even defeat at this time could not mar the achievement of their previous brilliant and successful sea- son of twenty-two victories. Boies rated the first all-star team as center, Maeser, the second team as for- ward. Stark received honorable mention. Illness in the ranks prevented Shrout's lads from entering the Illinois Wesleyan Tournament at Bloomington, Where twen- ty of the best picked teams, who lost in their district or sectional tourneys, played. - gli W5 eco, i ,J . --A-sy rlrt d e- rrr.

Prospects in Spring Events MUCH enthusiasm and interest was manifested at the opening of the 1930 track season at S. C. H. S. Many of the last year's tracksters were still en- rolled, ready to give their best in the way of winning track honors for Sycohi. Eustace, who was outstanding in hurd- ling the bar with the bamboo pole, won the Little Seven pole-vaulting honors and tied with Youngman of Rockford for district honors in 1929. Eddie's intensive prepara- tion for 1930 meets will undoubtedly en- able him to make an even higher mark in this event by June. Waterman made a vigorous showing as a speedy hurdler and his previous merits showed that he still intended to improve his time and skill. Maeser and Boies were the repre- sentative discus throwers this year. Sheley was a veteran dash man, who was accom- panied by Bock and Linden and the work of all these candidates was well done. Russell was back to hurl the javelin at an even greater distance than before. Present Schedule: April 26, Elmhurst College Meet. May 3, Gateway Classic Meet at Clinton, Iowa. CThis was also the date for the Rockford High School golf tournamenth. May 16-17, Interscholastic, University of Illinois-. May 24, Little Seven Meet at Batavia.

Sergeant-at-Arms Miss Keeler-Sponsor One of the largest and most popular or- ganizations of the Sycamore High School is the Mathematics Club. This club was organized for the purpose of furthering and promoting interest in mathematics among the students of S. C. H. S. In order to be eligible to the club an in- dividual must be completing his or her second year in mathematics with an aver- age of UC". A president must have two years of "math" with an average of "B", Now, in its fourth year, the club has reached a membership of forty-six mem- bers, all interested in mathematical puz- zles and games and showing their var- ious talents in our p1'0g'I'a.l'I1S. Committees were chosen to assist Miss Keeler, our club advisor in preparation for programs. An entertainment, typical of the club, consisted of a "math" history, puzzles, plays, musical numbers, an im- promptu speech, or talk given by an out- side speaker. Last, but not least, came the refreshments which were usually apples, candy bars, or Eskimo pies. Much credit must be given to Miss Keeler, who has made the club so success- ful this year by her splendid cooperation in helping to plan the programs and often entertaining us with her "math" puzzles and games.

S ecretary and Treasurer Mr. Powers-Sponsor The Sycohi consisting of twenty-four boy members held its first meeting of the school year on September 18th. The meet- ing was conducted by the oiiicers elected at the close of last year's school term. Mr. R. W. Terrell, who had sponsored the Boy's Club in the past turned over this duty to Mr. Powers, our new faculty mem- ber. Our loss of Mr. Terrell was a gain for the Agriculture Club, recently organ- ized by Mr. Terrell. We regretted that it was impossible for Mr. Terrell to stay with us because of this new work but we were happy to accept the sponsorship of Mr. Powers. Mr. Powers is liked by all for his genial and pleasing manners and for the interest he shows in our progress and in his work. By reason of his previous expe- rience in sponsoring a boy's club, he is well qualified to guide our destinies. The program committee composed of James Morgan, LeRoy Swedburg, Arthur Court, and Everett Sheley, has kept up the spirit and pep of each meeting throughout the year. Their arrangement of interesting programs has been excel- lent. The Club took an active part in the Carnival and by arranging and conduct- ing an exceedingly funny side-show as- sisted in making the Carnival a financial and social success. A great deal of time was spent in promoting debates on cur- rent subjects, such as, "Resolved, That the Chain Stores are a Detriment to a City," and "Resolved, That Lindbergh has Done More Toward Advancing Science than has Commander Byrd." Much unusual ora- torical talent has been developed in this manner. The present school year will soon be over and yet we are already looking for- ward to another successful and interest- ing year.

Vice-President Secretary and Treasurer Mr. Gipson-Sponsor The Edison Science Club under the di- rection of Mr. Gipson, our faithful and helpful sponsor, has spent a very interest- ing and successful year. The success of the club is also due to the officers who have cooperated splendidly and done much for its progress. The program usually consisted of talks, music, and jokes. Various problems of much interest to members were brought up at different times and discussed. The club met every second and fourth Monday of the month and each meeting was very interesting. Through the kindness of the Illinois Northern Utilities Company of DeKalb, the club was allowed to make a very in- teresting and educational trip through their extensive plant on March second. We were shown the diiferent processes by which gas is manufactured for use in De- Kalb and Sycamore. Mr. Gipson accom- panied the club and helped to explain some of the numerous processes. On the night of April twelfth, the club enjoyed an excellent party at the High School. The members were entertained with cards and dancing. Delightful re- freshments were served. The club is greatly indebted to Mr. Gip- son for his faithful service in planning the programs and assisting with the party. The members feel that the work of the club has aided them in scientific work and has greatly increased their knowledge along these lines. BRUCE SMITH, '33. ...-3-5i,m..,.,,if-:j.j,'QL7.11.ji. .

Boys' Glee Club Good morning, ladies and gentlemen of the radio audience. This is station S. C. H. S., owned and operated by the Boys' Glee Club, broadcasting its regular Tues- day mid-morning program at 10:15. Be- fore starting the musical program, per- haps our listeners should be informed re- garding the objectives of the Boys' Glee Club. It consists of 35 boys in the Sycamore Community High School who are interest- ed in music and in voice culture. At the beginning of each chorus period definite vocalizing exercises have been practiced to teach correct use of the voice. The boys have entered earnestly into this part of the work and the glee club is better for it. Early in the school year the club organ- ized and met at noon, but later we were Boies, O. Resch, and A. Court. This being the year when an operetta was to be pre- sented, little time was given to special concerts. The operetta this year was one of the most diftlcult ever put on, but under the efficient and patient leadership of Miss Wollensak, the boys' and girls' glee clubs combined and made it successful. Our singing at Baccalaureate was also com- mended by many. Our accompanists this year have been Kathryn Fell and Charles Scott. And now with most of the time having been taken up, We will close our forty-five minute period with a song by the boys, after which we will ask you to stand by for the next program. Don't forget to tune in next Thursday at 10:15 and hear another of these musi- 'gi allotted the time during the activities cal programs by the Boys' Glee Club.

After several weeks of these unusual occurrences an in- vestigation was made by the curious crew. The investigators started, the noises were faint, but as they drew nearer and nearer to the Assembly, they increased in volume till they were almost deafening. Many of the group became frightened and fled, but the brave ones mustered all their courage, and with a rush, opened the door and stepped on deck. Before them stood the gathered and were singing lustily. This ship's chorus, sometimes better known as the Girls' Glee Club, meet twice a Week at three thirty sharp in the As- sembly for the purpose of promoting in- terest in singing among the girls of the crew. The music captain, Florence Wol- lensak, is our leader in this big undertak- ing and without her careful, patient training, there would be no glee clubs, in the High School. She devotes hours of her time to us, and we, the members of the Glee Club, wish to thank her for her untiring attention and her helpfulness to us. cause of the noises they had heard.

This year several clever, good Operettas were placed before us, and the job of choosing one was very diiiicult. However, "Once in a Blue Moon" was iinally decided upon. Immediately we began our work upon it. The en- thusiasm Was very great, and the chorus cooperated heartily. The cast was soon chosen, and seven girls were given parts. As the time for the Operetta drew near, we practiced more than twice a week. Every member of the Glee Club takes part in the many choruses. At last, after months of practicing, the Operetta was After the chorus had presented the Operetta, we began work on songs for Baccalaureate and Commencement, for one of the ships in search of treasure, was nearing its goals, and it was necessary for the chorus to help celebrate the end of the journey. This year has proved both a happy and successful one for the Girls' Glee Club. Some of our members will leave us when they find their treasure, but the rest of us, who are still seeking and have not reached our goal, are looking forward to more happy years in the Girls' Glee Club, and we are hoping that Miss Wollensak will continue to be our helper.

The Orchestra The orchestra is supervised by our own Miss Wollensak, assisted by Miss Fink- beiner. We started working the iirst of the year with a more or less extensive knowledge of orchestra work, but after Miss Wollensak had had us in hand for about a month we began to show signs of great improvement, especially in that of attention and immediate response to her instructions. We have all Worked hard and have thus worked up a repertoire from which we may choose, for any oc- casion, at a moment's notice. Besides our work on odd pieces of music we have worked up the music finstrumen- tall for our operetta, "Once in a Blue Moon" which is one of the most difhcult music productions that our school has drama tourney held at the Community Center, for the Senior Class Play, and for Commencement and Baccalaureate. It gives several of our members a feeling of regret to realize that they can never again play the Senior Processional as they have for the last three years, but we must all move on and make room for others. There will be others as industrious. Miss Finkbeiner is training students in the in- tricacies of violin playing, while Miss Wol- lensak is training a class in wind instru- ments and drums. Thus We seniors leave with the assurance that our orchestra will continue giving the good service that it has always been known to give. We wish, before we leave, to thank Miss Wollensak for the wonderful help and in- ever attempted.

The plot is swift, scintillating, and de- lightfully enthralling. Bob Harrington is expected after an absence of four years, to return to the home of his foster aunt, Mrs. Montgomery, and his boyhood sweet- heart, Sylvia. Having fallen in love with another girl at college, he sends his best friend, George Taylor, who closely re- sembles him, as a substitute to a week-end party that Mrs. Montgomery is giving. Two unexpected guests arrive-burglary occurs - complications arise - George is suspected. Out of this dramatic situation a very satisfactory ending evolves. The prologue was an exquisite picture enhanced by lovely singing. Sally Fulton was charming as the 'Lady of the Moon", and she sang her solos delightfully. Mildred Lecky and Ladimir Moudry, playing the romantic leads, enchanted the tr ' ,. W.4 -. .:,:i.',"' aux. . fghl. A.,. -,', ."" , 5 ITJ audience with their line acting and beauti- ful singing. Mary James, a gracious matron, was very fine, while Dorothy Parke gave a spark- ling portrayal as her modern daughter. Betty Love was highly amusing as a widow ecstatic in sorrow. Wilma Driscoll was a sweetly sophisticated young lady, and Louise Waterman was a chic French maid. Donald Molander pleased with his fine singing as did William Russell. Everett Sheley skillfully portrayed a Chinese character. Edward Barrow and Monroe Stark were excellent in diiiicult character- izations. Edward Boies as a detective, and Owen Resch asapoliceman, were well cast. "The Blue Taxi" chorus was perhaps the most outstanding of the many fine choruses, also "The Blue Moon" chorus is not easily to be forgotten because of its vocal and visual loveliness. The chorus work was unusually goodg while the cos- tumes, dances, scenery and lighting were all that could be desired. "Once in a Blue Moon" was a huge success, and deserved- ly! LOIS JOHNSON, '30.

In the early part of the school year, 1929-30, the boys of the two agricultural classes of the Sycamore High School, un- der the guidance of our instructor, Mr. Terrell, decided to organize a local chap- ter of the Future Farme1's of America, which is a national organization. We se- cured a Charter from the State Oiiicers and our organization was complete. Our bi-weekly programs have been suc- cessful and entertaining. Mr. Lease and County Superintendent of Schools, Mr. Hubbard, gave talks at two of these meet- ings. The club also has held several night Reporter this meeting several of the boys gave short talks on their agriculture projects. Also a lantern-slide lecture on the "Con- trol of European Corn Borer" was given by LeRoy Carlson, assisted by Harvey Marsh. The second meeting was held on the night of April 11, 1930. Six of the boys gave a short play entitled, "Hiram's Pay Day". The Purina Company also put on a demonstration show to advertise Purina Feeds for Chickens. Both meet- ings drew a good attendance, mostly from the country. The success of these programs put on meetings in the High School Assembly to by the club has been due largely to our gf? which the public was invited.

The objects of the Association are to stimulate interest in Gir1's Athletic and Gymnastics and to instill into the minds of the members the highest ideals of health and sportsmanship. Nineteen-thirty, was the third year of the League's existence in our school. Club meetings were held every month on Wed- nesday mornings. Many interesting pro- grams were planned by our active presi- dent, Gene Harney and her co-worker, Dorothy Dunmore. A point system instituted by Miss Julian and later transposed into that of the training rules was essential to obtain any reward. On March 24, a basket shooting contest was held composed of one-half of the girls out for basketball. The results were then telegraphed to Miss Knapp, presi- dent of the organization. Fifteen girls under the direction of Winifred Burcum organized a swimming class. Classes were held every Wednes- day afternoon from 4:00 to 6:00. Many benefits were derived from these weekly gatherings and they were greatly enjoyed by all present. ,.

L - . ig., This picture had to be in, so we tried to tuck it in the very least noticeable place. If you have missed this-we congratulate you. The Hrst two members standing are the Honorable Owen A. 'Resch and Ladimir Moudry. We must let you in on the joke -the book they are so interested in is a. fourth year Latin text. Owen with his striking pose is the boy whose delight is using those big Words you find in the sport section. He insisted his copy go in just as he wrote it-we humbly offer our apologies. Laddie, poor fellow, is to be next year's Business Manager. The two pensive misses next are Thelma Ross and Isabel Chapman-our Typists. For any mistakes in spelling in this book -please see them. Bruzzie Waterman, standing so im- portantly in the middle of the row, is sup- posed to be Business Manager for this year. How we have escaped bankruptcy so far will always be a mystery to us. Please meet E. I. Boies, Jr.-Our-may we call him-a "Humorist"? The lad at Ed's left is Ev Sheley-our Snap Editor. Most of his time is spent telling us that he does more Work than anyone else on the board, which we have to admit is true. The last of the row is Lois Johnson, the girl who has made you sea-sick looking at those dizzy waves she drew. afraid you might not see her and insisted on sitting on the table. Please excuse her. The next is our editor, Sally Fulton, whom we would like you to see but she is hanging her head in proper shame. Betty Love is the thoughtful member with much hair. We are glad you can see her ears, anyway. She was our liter- ary editor and really wrote some good stuff until she got tired of the work and used an appendicitis operation as an ex- cuse to escape. The lady sitting in our midst is our ad- visor-the real hard boiled member of the board. Her job is to run up and down steps after us to try to get us to work. The prim maid struggling at the type- writer is Wilma Driscoll, Miss Love's as- sistant. Much to Mr. Hunt's delight she scatters her ink blots freely about the school. Dorothy Parke is the little girl looking at her picture book. She also dabs at the canvas and helps with the snapshots. Louise Waterman is the last member to be discussed. The fact that she is the sister of the Business Manager has greatly hampered the progress of the board. Fully one-half our time was spent trying to settle the differences between the two. Louise, by the way, intends to put out the "Oracle" for you next year.

Why? Well, because the night so long awaited had arrived. The Fresh- man party was on. We entered the door to the gymnasium -but lo-gone was the ordinary room. In its place was a true autumn scene, with its corn stalks, pumpkins in all 'Hallo- weeny' decorations. We had hardly revived from this sur- prise when we were ushered into the "Bughouse"-from which issued forth un- earthly shrieks, and yells, made by the ghosts and goblins which inhabited it. Not many of us stayed there very long be- cause we were too frightened. We soon lost our fright in the joys of ducking for apples and having our fortunes told. - Ella Nelson and Russell Carlson re- ceived prizes for having the prettiest cos- tumes. Claribel McClenahan and Otto Hammersmith were awarded the prizes for having the funniest costumes.. The worst of it was that poor Otto had no mask on at all. W Later we danced-mostly on pumpkin seeds, cornstalks, etc. The music was fur- nished by "Carrots" and his "Blue Moon Serenadersf' During intermission, refreshments- punch, sandwiches,,and eskimo pies-were served to the hungry crowd. After having what Freshmen call a "scrumptious" time, the same parade started out together but soon branched out into several directions on their home- ward way. All thought the party had been perfect and that Miss Reinhart had certainly done her best to make it so. VERONICA LALLEY, .'33. The Q. A. A. Party T . "Make Me a. Kid Again Justfor Tonight" ON FRIDAY, November 1, time did turn backward in his flight and made all the members of the G. A. A. "kids again .. . -V H just for that night," and we certainly did have Fun. The high school fairly vibrated with cries of "Mamma," and "I want a penny." We blew soap bubbles: we jumped ropeg we played jacks: we cried and we pouted. Hair ribbons bobbed around on the heads of girls who, that very afternoon, had been the most sophisticated and digniiied Sen- iors. Stately former Juniors ran around with suckers in their mouths. Intelligent Sophomores cried when they couldn't have their own way and knowing Fresh- men pouted in the corners. Miss "Margie" Julian made everybody laugh 'cause she almost cried when a soap bubble burst in her face. We tried to dance but everyone was hungry, so we went to the cooking room and there the concluding crisis took place for we betrayed ourselves by our appe- tites. They showed full well that we were far beyond the tender age of six or there- abouts. It was getting very late, almost ten o'clock, and as many of us still feared the "Boogie Man" we thought it best to call our mothers and have "Nursie" come after us. A few of the boldest ones ventured home alone but most of us departed under the kind and watchful eye of an older person. MARION BOYLE, '31. Science Club Party ON SATURDAY night, April 13th, the Science Club held its annual party in the High School gymnasium. The gym- nasium was very prettily decorated with purple and gold streamers and posters. The members, with their invited guests, arrived around seven-thirty. They en- joyed playing various card games includ- ing "Bunce" for the first part of the even- ing. A special section of the gymnasium was reserved for those who wished to con- tinue playing cards, but the rest of the floor was later occupied by the merry dancers. Music was furnished by a Ma- jestic Racliola, donated by Drayton's. MARGARET PETERSON, '33. ',f' L"-3i5f.Sl1:nQf' "'i". 1 -,-,?

The Gymnasium, which was beautiful- ly decorated as a snow scene, was the re- sult of much patient work by Miss Jordan, our sponsor, and members of the class. The Orchestra platform, which was oc- cupied by sailors from DeKalb, was marked off by red and white streamers. Contrary to the usual custom, the party was held in the evening making the affair more suc- cessful. ,- After dancing a short time, Santa Claus, accompanied by the Snow Queen, entered. Santa Claus presented certain members of the class with small gifts. During the Grand March, which followed the pre- sentation of the gifts, everyone received a very cleverly made favor. These were made by the Sophomore girls. The boys' quartet favored us with some Christmas carols. Punch was served throughout the evening by the Snow Queen. After the party, everyone left with the conviction of having experienced the most enjoyable Sophomore Party ever. NORMA DRISCOLL, '32. The Adelphian Sleigh Ride N A CLEAR moon-lit evening in Jan- uary, approximately flfty girls of the Adelphian Society gathered for their an- nual sleigh ride. A country road is the way of the open sleigh! Gleaming under its cover of snow, the highway rolled out like a diamond besprinkled ribbon behind us. Those who elected to sit on the sled attached to the sleigh were more often than not, plentifully deluged with the icy crystals. Those of us who stayed closely packed together in the sleigh, found that the popcorn balls, eaten on our way, had left their traces everywhere too. After reaching Five Points, we decided that we had better turn back. Fire was foremost in our minds-and eats, too. My, how the hot chocolate, hot dogs, and cookies did disappear. It was reported that those who made the greater mileage on foot fit being our driver, Mr. McPher- son's little joke to make the horses gallop just as a little group decided to walk for a whilel consumed the greater quantity of food. Miss Ehrhardt, our last year's sponsor, was guest of honor. She did her best to keep Winifred Hasty laughing, and Ger- trude Cudden warm. We, who are Seniors, regret that we will have few opportunities to enjoy the Adel- phian's good times in the future, but we will never forget our good times of the past. We also wish to thank our new ad- visor, Miss Paterson, for her kind help- fulness and for her thought in suggesting this sleigh ride. ISABEL CHAPMAN, '30. The Pep Club Dance THE PEP Club, which consists of a num- ber of peppy and enthusiastic girls, very delightfully entertained the members of the Basket Ball and Football teams, March 30, 1930. Dancing and cards Were the outstanding features of entertainment. Music was furnished by a Victor Ortho- phonic from Wetzel Bros.', to whom we are very grateful. About 10:30, everybody marched up to the Sewing Room, which was beautifully decorated in purple and gold colors. There were three long tables-the center being especially reserved for the Basket Ball fellows and their partners. Delicious refreshments were served, the first course consisting of sandwiches, pickles and hot chocolateg the second, of ice cream and cake. During the second course, a large two- layer cake covered with lighted candles, was brought in and placed before Ed Boies-in honor of his birthday. This was a surprise to all of us, as well as to Ed, who welcomed it as a very pleasant sur- prise. The party was considered a huge success by all who were present and we wish to thank Miss Paterson, who is at the head of the Pep Club, for her splendid coopera- tion which made the party the success that it was.

Finally the greatly anticipated banquet was announcedg and when everyone had found their assigned places, they noticed the beautiful and sweetly scented apple blossoms which decorated the room. The dinner consisted of three courses, very well served by a group of Sophomore and Freshmen girls. Original favors were given to everyone. After the banquet, our president, also toastmaster, heartily and graciously re- ceived the Seniors and wished them suc- cess as they leave us. In behalf of the Seniors, Everett Sheley spoke of their re- gret in leaving our school so greatly en- joyed in cooperation with us Juniors. It was agreed. he said, that this was the best Junior-Senior Reception they had ever at- tended-as Seniors. According to the laughter that rang out from six-thirty till twelve, eve1'yone enjoyed themselves. At first, Donald Holmes, accompanied by Aileen Foy at the piano, favored us with two trumpet solos-"I Love a Little Cottage" and "One Fleeting Hour." Fol- lowing this, Marion Boyle gave a very in- teresting reading entitled "It Couldn't Be Done," which was very profitable especial- ly to the Seniors. The double quartet whose members are Robert Birkner, Ever- ett Sheley, Ladimir Moudry, Donald Holmes, George Dutton, Donald Molan- der, George Dean, and Owen Resch, sang "Deep River", and "The Green Apple." Kathryn Feil was the pianist. The last number was a serious and humorous talk, "Sense and Nonsense" by our principal, Miss Amrine. I am sure everyone profited by her words. After this delightful program, all re- tired to wait for the dance to begin or to The grand march as the third dance was led by Donald Molancler and Ruth Maryon Carlson. At twelve, the joyful crowd bid good that night and left, mourning perhaps, never again would they assemble in their entirety. JANE 'WETZEL, l3l. The Evangeline Dance THE Evangeline Literary Society held its annual dance Friday, November 19th, in the High School Gymnasium. It hap- pened that this was the week intervening between the Foot Ball and Basketball sea- sons, therefore we were allowed the pleas- ure of inviting boys from the teams. The party began about 8:00 o'clock. The gym was very beautifully decorated in and brown. and bridge autumn colors-tan, orange There were several chairs lamps which added much to the comfort and to the appearanc-e of the Gym. Music was furnished by a selected or- chestra consisting of Kathryn Feil, "Sleepy" Holmes, Neil ,Rose, Junior Quinn and Floyd Loptien. Their services' were great- ly appreciated. Delicious punch was served to all during the intermissions. Everyone who was present had an en- joyable time, thanks to our capable ad- visor, Miss Condon, who always does a great deal in making our parties a success. VVILMA DRISCOLL, '3O.

At eight o'clock the crowd was admit- ted to the assembly, where the main pro- gram of the evening was to be held, A reading, "Courting Under Diflicultiesj' re- cited by a talented newcomer, Wayne Sheffel, was the first of the many enter- taining and humorous numbers on the program. Donald Molander and Eugene Bock presented several harmonica selec- tions, and Eugene played a few numbers on his "squeeze box". "Sue's Message", a short play given by William Warren, Max Mabel, and Robert Birkner, was followed by a tap dance ,"Ach Du Lieber Augustine", in which Phoebe Love and Dorothy Smith took part. Other numbers of the pro- gram were as follows: A play, "W0man's Way", presented by Sally Fulton, Ladimir Moudry, Everett Sheley, Donald Molander, and Miriam Vartyg Hawaiian guitar duet by Amy Richardson and Evelyn Hertzellg reading, "Setting the Hen", by Harriet Crosierg play f?b, "The Romans", by Bruzz Waterman, Ed Boies, Art Court, Bob Maeser and Everett Sheley: tap dance by Jean and Barbara Enghg and last and most important, the crowning of the king and queen, who proved to be Everett Sheley and Dorothy Parke. There was a short intermission between the completion of this program and the basketball game, during which many ob- tained refreshments at the Junior tea room while others enjoyed the club stunts, The gym was soon filled with interested spectators. The Heavies ran away from the Lights in the first half, and in the third quarter Mr. Shrout gave next year's prospects the chance to "do their stuff". This they did, holding the Lights to a lone basket. The Heavies took the floor at the fourth quarter, and the game end- ed with the score 26-4 in favor of the iirst team. GENE HARNEY, '32. i The Oracle Stunt THE CURTAIN rose upon three sleepers -our Editor, Business Manager, and Office Dog CHumor Editorb. Their slum- bers were soon disturbed by the ringing of an alarm clock. "Wake up and get to work", was the cry of the two: the Dog slept on. The work began, Sub-Editors were called in and each -.assigned his par- ticular duty. They soon came back with tales of tragedy. No Write-ups, No Money! Was the Oracle to be a flop after all? No, not with such a Staff of workers. Each editor was called in again and new assignments were made. Things began to progress. Our Joke Editor, Ed. Boies, read some of his prize copy. Betty Love our Literary Editor, had unearthed the true story of the Parker Wedding. Her reading was punctured by shrieks of laughter. "Pill" Driscoll read her assign- ment "The Faculty Bridge Parties", which gave us the inside "dope" on some myster- ious happenings. The typists began thumping the keys, and everything seemed to be going fine when in came Laddie, our assistant Business Manager. He had been - able to get only one subscription. Our Business Manager overcome by this, faint- ed dead away only to be revived by a lib- eral deluge of water given by the Office Dog who nobly arose to the occasion. Even then John's first thought was that he was a fish for he began swimming. In the meantime Laddie had begun to count his money-only 31.49. Where was that other penny? What should be done? Ah, we were saved by the donation of some kind friend in the audience! How to get more money? Was there ever such a quandry? When Lo! in walked a green little Freshie, who asked, "Er- Er- Er- Does anybody know- Where ah- to get subscriptions for the Oracle?" That was enough! We leaped for him but were stopped in our tracks when we learned that he had been out getting subscriptions. He held up a check for 3999.99 as proof. Among us all, only our Oflice Dog had presence of mind to grasp the check be- fore it could vanish. saved. ' Hurrah! We were WILMA DRISCOLL.

Play Day J 4' N SATURDAY, November 2, 1929, eight girls chosen from the three upper classes of Sycamore High School went to DeKalb to compete with other schools in Play Day. The chosen girls were: Dorothy Wells, Muriel Lewis, Sophomoresg Ger- trude Cudden, Dorothy Dunmore, Wini- fred Burcum, Juniors, Betty Love, Sally Fulton, Isabel Chapman, Seniors. Our de- voted instructor, Miss Julian, also accomp- anied us. Twelve high schools, including Syca- more, were represented at this meet. Upon arriving at DeKalb Normal, and after paying a small entrance fee, We were presented with numbers and ribbons. We were placed on one of two teams, the red or blue. The purpose of selecting teams is to eliminate any school prejudi- ces. The two teams competed in such games as: Tennis, Hockey, Volley Ball, Horseshoe Pitching, Base Ball, Relay Races and various other games. The games were continued throughout the morning and shortly before noon they were finished. All girls then assembled in the gym and the winning team was announced and given awards. This Play Day was similar to one held at Wheaton the previous year. It is a great deal of fun to attend the meets and meet friends who have also participated in other Play Days. Throughout the day we were delightfully entertained. Everyone looks forward with enviable hope of be- ing chosen to attend the next Play Day. V, WINIFRED BURCUM, '31. We Go to Europe ,HIS is a year of Eastward M grations. Af number of Sycamore's faculty, Miss Reinhart, Miss Keeler, Miss Jordan, Miss Adams and Miss Ehrhardt, are plan- ning to be among those who take flight. We expect to hear some interesting talks next year, for never before has the Old Wo1'ld's program presented so many things of interest. The five teachers mentioned can be heard asking each other-f'Did you get your Visas?"-"Weren't those passport pictures awful?" etc. Miss Keeler is going to Eng- land with a friend and may spend most of her time there. Miss Reinhart is go- ing part of the way with the "Briscoe Tours", but is planning to go through Italy, Switzerland, France, England and Scotland alone. Having been in Europe last summer, she is planning her trip to include the places of interest she did not see then. She is sailing on the "La Grasse", from New York, June 10. The tours of Miss Jordan, Miss Adams, and Miss Ehrhardt, cover somewhat the same territory. Miss Adams and Miss Jor- dan include Naples, and the Amaliii drive, while Miss Ehrha1'dt includes Scotland. Miss Adams and Miss Jordan leave from New York on the S. S. Olympic, June 203 Miss Ehrhardt leaves from Montreal, June 25, on the Canadian Pacific Steamship. "Montclare', bound for Cherbourg, France. From Cherbourg her tour goes to Paris, and then by way of Lyons and Marseilles, to Nice and Monte Carlo. Following along the famous Corinche Road, the French and Italian Riveria it goes to Genoa and Pisa to Rc-me. 1Pity those poor history students of the futurelh From Rome it goes to Florence, Venice and Milan and cn up to Lugano: then up to Lucerne and from there to Munich which is the start- ing point for the trip to Oberarnmergau, where the marvelous Passion Play is given. From Oberammergau, it goes to Hei- delberg the famous German University town. and from there by way of the Rhine, to Cologne. From Cologne it goes to "The Hague", to- Brussels and to Ostend. From Ostend it crosses to Dover, England. Some time is spent in London and in the Shakespeare Country, and then the tour goes on to Edinburgh. On the way from Edinburgh to Glasgow, it goes through the famous "Trossach Country", immortal- ized by Scott. The Ship "S. S. Melita" is boarded at Glasgow, and sets sail for the westward passage, stopping long enough at the harbor of Belfast, so the Green of Ireland can be seen. tiei. ll'9i3d1fj: t'ana i . -2 Page Seventy-four sf D if iv li Gracie Ml .

Although we do not realize it, we are continually using art and being surrounded by art. On November 4, 1929, both Art classes and our instructor, Miss Miner, visited the Haeger Pottery Mills at Dundee. We were delayed a short time at the mills for we had to wait for a guide to show us through the mills. When the guides came, the classes were divided into two groups so it would be possible for every one to see and hear. We were taken to the molding room first. There we were shown some of the plaster of paris casts. Moist clay is put into molds and left there for many hours to dry. As we ascended a flight of stairs, we witnessed the action of the jigger wheel, which with the combined action of a ladle, forms the pottery perfectly. The smaller pottery is formed by another jig- ger wheel and without the use of the ladle. Our guide informed us that here no two pieces of pottery were ever made alike. Descending the stairs, we were shown the largest kilns in which the pottery is Iired. Firing is done consistently because thousands of dollars are required each time the kilns are started. The factory is very modernly equipped. The new kilns are constructed of steel, though some of the old brick kilns are still used. Watching them paint the pottery was very interesting. This is done after the pottery has come from the kilns. Leav- ing the construction rooms, we entered the room in which defective pottery is sold. Here we received more information about the pottery made. We discovered that the most popular piece for sale is "The Rain Barrel." Most of us could not resist buy- ing something to take home. Carefully guarding our treasures, we climbed into the bus and started for home. We all felt that the day had been well spent. WINIFRED BURCUM, '31. .1 -.1 'za AG, gg Seeing "Hamlet" UNDER the competent leadership of Mrs. Parker and Miss Keeler, twenty- eight students of English IV journeyed to Chicago to see the Shakespearian tragedy, Hamlet, produced by Fritz Lieber and his distinguished group of players. This pro- duction took place in the New Civic Opera Building and we were fortunate not only in witnessing the play but also seeing the theater which, in the future, is to be used as the home of Shakespearian plays. We had dinner at the popular Henrici's and arrived at the theater about a half hour before the curtain rose. Everyone admired the color scheme and the mod- ernistic art used throughout the theater. The presentation of a Shakespearian play is very much different from a modern play. There was no music between acts, but the scenes were changed with great rapidity. The scenery used in the' play, it was interesting to note, was modernistic and the stage designers were trying to portray to the audience the effect of a certain scene, rather than making it ap- pear too realistic. The whole presentation was very much different, than one would expect from this type of 'play, but never- theless every one felt greatly repaid for having gone. EVELYN HERTZELL, '30. A Trip to the Stock Show N DECEMBER 3, 1929, the Agriculture Classes of the High School and our instructor, Mr. Terrell, went to Chicago in a bus to see the International Livestock Exposition. We had also decided to take the first half of the day in visiting the International Harvester Tractor Plant and the Swift's Packing House. We all agreed that our time was well spent in doing so. At noon we left the Packing House and went to the Stock Yard Inn Where we ate our dinner. The place was small and crowded with people, but we managed to get through without much trouble or over-eating. rllrf Page Seventy-foe iii ie? ix .H 4, .g,..,,.V.,,-.,e CM. ef.-se.LgeQQ'l.i .e.Qgees.ele l Q'-'fs K' - A... J'5Q . s egg S From the Inn, we went to the Stock " Show, which was the main object of our trip. Here we spent the afternoon and evening in looking the Show over. The Exposition was like any large fair, except that particular emphasis was placed on livestock. We saw animals from all parts of the United States and Canada and even some from Europe, the Show being an international affair. During the after- noon they held a Grand Parade of all the horses and cattle, in the big Arena. We stayed to the night show, which is almost a circus in itself, until nearly eleven o'clock, after which we went back to the bus for our trip back home. Most of us were back at school the next morning even if we did not get home until the wee small hours in the morning. CHARLES SCOTT, '31. ECEMBER 2, 1929, found our party of twenty-eight Juniors and their chap- erones, Miss Adams, Miss Jordan, Miss Paterson, and Miss Hulbert, waiting eag- erly for school to dismiss so that we could start on our trip to Chicago to see "Macbeth" Regardless of disagreeably cold and snowy Weather, We enjoyed the bus trip very much. Soon after eating dinner at the "Terrace Gardens," we were taken to the Civic Theatre to see Fritz Lieber's production of this play. - Fritz Leiber, who played the part of Macbeth and who was also the director, is probably one of the best Shakespearian actors of the present time. Modernistic scenery was used tliroughout the play. The costuming, which was accurately done, was in keeping with the historical period. The play was enjoyed by every- one. After Waiting a short time for the bus, we started home, and everyone agreed that we had had a very enjoyable and in- structive trip. "Macbeth" JUNIOR QUINN, '3l. "'1ii 'figlgfg-Qjigfi """f ffpffi?.f1i'?fii2i?11ii?".if Art and Biology Trip i to Chicago VERY early on Wednesday morning, the day before Spring Vacation, several travelers could be seen wandering up and down the main wharf of Sycamore. Al- though it was raining steadily, everyone seemed to be in the best of humor and ready for a long days trip. The boat, "The Bus," was an hour late and immediately the passengers embarked, and it sailed out of the harbor, toward Chicago. Cards and music were offered as entertainment, mak- ing the ride seem short indeed. We landed at "The Garfield Park Con- servatory." The Art and Biology students together viewed the beautiful arrangement of the flowers and plants. Rather reluc- tantly we left the conservatory and chug- ged our way over to Lincoln Park. We visited the most interesting bird and ani- mal houses. As soon as we had all boa1'd- ed "The Bus", the dinner gong rang and we rushed to "The Stevens Room" for din- ner. After a pleasant luncheon we left for the "Art Institute." Here we saw many beautiful paintings and objects ofinterest. ' Our only regret was. that we did not have more time to Wander through the lovely rooms. The "Field Museum" was our next stop. Here we separated and explored to our hearts content. From the Museum we journeyed over to Marshall Field and Company and spent an hour exploring its mysteries. W. L. S. was our next station. After lunch at the Sherman Hotel, we set out for the Chicago Theatre. At nine thirty we all boarded "The Bus" and sailed home, arriving at twelve o'clock. Our two Captains, Miss Miner and Mr. Terrell, aided in making it a most enjoy- able trip and one to be remembered. MARY JAMES, '30, 1- .f rm: G' Q. i x.

You have achieved your first objective. It now becomes your responsibility to look ahead and, more or less unaided, to carry the symbols of progress to a generation eager for inspiration, leadership and knowledge. Let us consider some of the characteristics that will tend to insure progress as well as to make it both more pleasant and profitable. The desire or ambition to succeed is of decided importance. When fired with an ambition to succeed, disappointments become a mere incident. Such a desire would never permit a defeat to become more than a tempor- ary obstacle. Success does not necessarily mean an accumulation of ma- terial goods. Progress is the result of a series of triumphs over those fac- tors that have hindered our advance. The characteristic of being ready when an opportunity comes is of inestimable value. We should analyze our shortcomings and so educate ourselves that those shortcomings will not be deterring factors in the road toward future progress. Promotions come to those who are alert and recognize their opportunities for greater service. You are ready for big- ger things as soon as you prove that you can handle your present position more efficiently than similar positions are customarily handled. Progress is not made by those who have no enthusiasm for their work. Techniques, devices and professional knowledge do not become alive and vital until the spark of real enthusiasm is mixed with them. Enthusiasm is the urge, the doer, of progress. However, whether your progress is rapid and uninterrupted or a con- tinuous struggle against ever recurring obstacles, I wish you to know that your school and your faculty will follow your course with interest and kindly sympathy. Your successes may serve as an inspiration to those who are beginning the ascent and your difficulties will serve as danger signals warning others of the necessity for more careful preparation.

First of all, we direct that our just debts and funeral expenses be paid. To the faculty as a whole we bequeath our best wishes and thanks, realizing that they have struggled long and hard to be able to get rid of us in four years. To the Junior Class We cheerfully be- stow our Senior dignity, of which we have made so much use in the past year, also our famous English IV Book Reports and Examinations. To Miss Amrine we donate the time she has spent with some of our lively members with hopes that she will use it well on our friends, the Juniors. To the entire student body, we give the beautiful inscriptions and carvings on the assembly desks. The individual members of the Class bequeath their personal possessions as follows: Mabel Anderson leaves her solemn and serious mien to Wilma Tuestad. Merrill Barnes leaves his promising po- sition in the business world to Albert Milledge. Edward Barrow leaves his dramatic in- terpretation of "The Shooting of Dan McGrew" to Rachael Montgomery, and his studious habits to Richard Lind. Gilbert Bodeen leaves his Swedish brogue to Sam Mabel. Edward Boies leaves his efficiency in French translations to Jane Wetzel, and his "line" and personality to George Dut- ton. Andrin Cain bequeaths her claim to "Joiner" to Marcella Schneider. Sanford Caldwell leaves his conspicuous ties to Marshall Lee. You'll be a real sheik now, Marshall! He also leaves his wonderful "vo ca bu lary" to Lester Har- ris. Lillian will appreciate it! Isabel Chapman bequeaths her red pen- cil to Winifred Hasty. She'd probably get it in the end anyway. She also bequeaths her sunny disposition to Charlotte West. James Cliffe leaves his debating ability to Joe McConaghie. Arthur Court bequeaths his 200 pounds, Cwe haven't found out the late data on thisl to Jack Maveus, and his power to play the violin even while Rome is burn- ing, to Ralph Shellito. Earl Daily leaves his 1924 bicycle to Laddie Moudry. You won't get foot-sore now, Laddie. Wilma Driscoll leaves her airs of "The Grande Madame" to Cora Neibergall. Helene Emerson leaves her famous frontspiece to be preserved in the archives of the school, also her interest in the clan of Campbell to no one. Eddie Eustace leaves his Saturday night calls to DeKalb to Wesley Lindstrom. Don't stay out as late as Eddie, "Wes,'. Bill Faissler leaves his efficiency in spelling to Brune Dunmore, and his ar- dent interest in women to Laurence El- liott. Kaye Feil bequeaths her brilliancy to Carolyn Hemenway. You'll be on the all "A" honor roll now, Carolyn. Kaye's power to pound the ivories she leaves to Vivian Joiner. Sally Fulton leaves her cosmetics to Violet Scott, her position as the Editor- in-Chief of the Oracle to Louise Water- man. You're doomed anyway, Louise! Kathryn Gray leaves her angelic looks and sweet disposition to Doris Coombs. Her interest in 'Holand' she prefers to keep. Linnea Gustafson leaves her love for the wild life to Leona Bowen. ' Evelyn Hertzell bequeaths her ability to strum on the guitar to Agnes Schaak and her hairpins to Winifred Burcum. Maurine Humphrey leaves her book on "How I Keep My Girlish Figure" to Helen Hudson. Mary James leaves her native Wit to John Ovitz. You can express yourself now in fewer words, John. Gertrude Johnson leaves her appeal to Page Ninety-four iii 'is'- Us 35 0 .1 .ob mm I. 'r.ssi. .

All omens point to an exciting trip, for the strangest of circumstances brought us in contact with a few of our old class- mates today. We were speeding around a corner in little old New York and just had time to catch a glimpse of a figiue in not very immaculate white, sitting de- jectedly on the curb stone. It was our friend John Waterman! He had achieved his ambition-that of being a "white wing" in a big city. We waved frantically but discovered to our disappointment that he was fast asleep. He had probably been his usual twenty minutes late to work be- sides! Then, when we alighted at the docks, we perceived a familiar shock of red hair nodding vigorously to the tune of "Come, you Sinners!" while one hand rang a small bell, and the other beat an old drum. Bill Faissler-of all people! Yes, it was he, devoutly supporting the Salvation Army with his lusty voice. He looked entrancing in his bonnet and cape. However, the most alarming thing in all our day's experience happened when we were putting out to sea. As we were gaz- ing at the skyline for a last look, we dis- covered a person on the top of the Statue of Liberty violently waving a bandanna handkerchief. Using our binoculars, We discovered that the figure was none other than that of Edward Eustace, perched on the top of a slender pole, evidently much at home. Having inquired, we have learned that he has sat there six weeks in an attempt to pass the former record of Gilbert Bodeen, the present champion flag-pole sitter. We wept a few proper tears for all they have contributed to humanity since they have graduated from our revered seat of learning. SATURDAY, JUNE 3, 1940: Aboard the S. S. SycoHia for our trip. Found state-room very comfortable. Sud- denly, without any preliminaries, our door burst open and in walked someone, com- pletely hidden under two immense trunks which were dumped unceremoniously be- fore us. From under them, Marion Mc- Conaghie, Chief-Stewardess, rose to her full, imposing height. We learned from her ':" 'f-'- j if ""' 2 eiu' xiii: that Lydia Neklasson, Vadna Marsh, and Dorothy Smith were on the Vessel bound for Abyssinia to excavate the bones of the "Queen of Sheba". At nine, we went down to dance. An old, familiar, and well- known grin greeted us from the leader of the jazz orch-estra and despite the black make-up, we recognized Art Court! Two mo1'e members of this Orchestra proved to be Muriel McClenahan and Kathryn Fell. MONDAY, JUNE 15, 1940: Wonderful Scandinavia! And whom do you suppose we discovered here-a "Sven- ska Poikaf, none other than our Lee Swed- burg, who spends most of his time yodel- ing as he tends his goats on the mountain side. On our way to Stockholm we stop- ped at a farm house to get some Bak-fish and to our surprise were greeted by Lin- nea Gustafson-plump and prosperous. Arrived in Stockholm at six o'c1ock, went to a famous Lutheran Church and listened to Rhoda Klemmedson and Gertrude Johnson singing lustily in the choir. Were informed that Madame Lecky had been studying voice here, but had recently giv- en up her career for some mysterious Mr. Prescott. THURSDAY, JUNE 25, 1940: Left lovely England today. The chan- nel was very choppy. As we were leaning over the rail mot from desire, I assure you but from sheer necessity!D we caught sight of a small tug in the distance. Com- ing along side we heard a band apparently playing for the amusement of a hiunan being paddling feebly around in the water. To our very great surprise, through all the grease we recognized Monroe Stark, who, having conquered his dislike of water, was apparently attempting to swim the chan- nel. We couldn't decide which would be the victor-Min or the Channel! FRIDAY, JUNE 26, 1940: Have been in Paris six days. Busy every minute. Today we visited the fam- ous studios of Mitchell and Emerson. Just arrived home from an evening spent at the Comedie Francaise. The "Harmony Twisters" Dorothy and Thelma Ross sang the latest blue songs, and among the sparkling chorus, we were able to dis- tinguish Irene Marshall, Edith Lindstrom, Q., .,.. ..,... , ..

How changed some of those dignined Seniors are now. Forgot to mention that we met Mary Westfield this mornng. We discov- ered her in Pacquin's as a mannequin. MONDAY, JUNE 29, 1940: We are stopping in Czecho-Slovakia for a time to study its entrancing language. Went to the royal palace. While gazing at the works of Art, we perceived some- one hurrying along the corridor, taking huge strides. We could not be mistaken- that walk betrayed Owen Reschki. After an hour's chat with this dictator of the Country, we were both of the same opin- ion-Owen has not changed in the least! He still has that coy blush and still uses those great, long words Cthat's what's fooled the Czecksll His eflicient secretary, Isabel Chapman, still carries with her a nice, red pencil. WEDNESDAY, JULY 1, 1940: Explored Moscow today. Everywhere huge placards bore the name of Raymond Petriski-the new Soviet leader of the Bolsheviks! That was too much for us- we headed for Turkey! SUNDAY, JULY 5, 1940: In Constantinople at last! The trip from Russia was terrific. As soon as we got into Turkey, we began to hear rumors that the famous Pasha Orrin Maveus. had just selected another wife for his harem. O! for the life of a Turk-O Man! WEDNESDAY, JULY 8, 1940: On board the Mediterranean steamer today, we discovered Earl Daily. Learned that he was going on a pilgrimage to Mecca having learned from T. E. Laur- ence that it was possible to do so on a bicycle. Cairo! Going through the native quar- ter, we were attracted by the music issuing from the bazaar. We wandered in that direction and came upon a native dance in progress. In dark-skinned beauties we recognized, to our amazement, Doris Knipp and Kathryn Mihm, and in the skillful wielders of the tom-toms, Amy Richard- son and Evelyn Hertzell. Next came a QQ snake-charmer and a contortionist, our , old friends Bill Russell and Virginia Nel- J' , Q son. Sf. -1 WEDNESDAY, JULY 15, 1940: Gee! That trip through Suez was hot! M-"w . t' r, .. ' -. 1: , Stopped at Adan for an hour and there in the sands of the desert discovered Lawrence Rogers writing religious disser- tations which will convert the world, he tells us. He has lived the life of a hermit for ten whole years. MONDAY, JULY 20, 1940: In the heart of Africa-thrills and more thrills! As we were passing down the muddy waters of the Gungpago river, we saw two figures moving stealthily about in the thickets. When they stepped into the clearing and saw us they stared with unbelief. We finally recognized in them our old classmates Mary James and Bob Maeser. Bob's curly locks were trailing down his back and he had developed a wonderful, flowing beard. Bob soon ex- plained that they were not dangerous but he had spent ten years in search of the elusive "Zoo-Zoo" bird and had, by chance run across Mary, who had repaired to the deepest jungles to await the growth of her hair in private, and incidentally to find the "Dadipulus" duck. They had found instead, swinging from a branch of a tree, eating bananas and throwing cocoa-nuts, what had been hailed by scientists as "The Missing Link." They had it caged and sent to the Field Museum where it was examined and discovered to be the long lost Edward Boies. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 1940: Despite the bandits, we are here in Hong-Kong. Visited the imperial univer- sity and found Pearl Montgomery teach- ing public speaking. She has become an authority on "How to Project the Voice." Coming from this institution, we were ac- costed by a jinrikisha man, who, whin- ingly asked us to hire him. We were going to pass on but something in the appear- ance of the Chinaman made us stop. It was our old friend Ev Sheley. We got in- to the rikisha and told him he might Hop Hi, but not Sing Hi. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 1940: Reached Alaska at last. Made it our base for an expedition to the North Pole. Near the pole we found Sam Caldwell just enjoying life in his igloo and eating whale blubber with as much relish as he used to eat Hershey bars in Sycohi. We also met Woodrow Lindstromx now a high "4-' gif-Q44 gli: fa' 'ff' ' , A z , Page Ninety-seven -fi, .9-s x 53.2. Q, -, .2- QT' J, .

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 6, 19402 Passing Catalina today, we were aston- ished to see James Morgan emerging from a diver's suit. His power of speech having failed him, he was obliged to dive for pennies for a living. Tonight while read- ing the "Los Angeles World," two pictures jumped out of the page at us. One was that of a dizzy blonde, whose name was Dorothy La Fleur. This name meant nothing to us, but the face was familiar. Reading the article, we learned that this was the former Dorothy Parke, who was just divorcing her fifth husband because he snored. The other face was very ser- ious and thoughtful-a picture of our old friend, Sally Fulton, now a famous bar- rister, who had handled the case for Mrs. La Fleur. They say that Sally has broken up many a home. Some lawyer! The in- side sheets of the paper gave a description of the famous Doctor Love who people say has succeeded in doing away with more appendicitis cases than any other doctor in the United States. We can remember that even in High School, appendicitis took her interest. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1940: Here we are back in the States again! Decided to spend a week in 'Frisco. Here we found Floyd Loptien being displayed as "The World's Fattest Man", at a beach carnival. How these candy bars do add the calories! We also learned that Wilma Driscoll, the grand opera singer, Gordon Wetzel, the great oil magnate, and Vera Wylde, the renowned comedienne, lived on the Barbary Coast. Plenty of atmos- phere! While here we received the news that Jimmy Cliffe and Maurine Hum- phrey had just completed a record-break- MONDAY, OCTOBER 19, 1940: Visited the Paramount studio to see the famous Madame Lois Johnson at work on her latest pictur-e "Melancholy Maidens." Arrived at the most inopportune moment -"The Great Johnson" had just been much enraged because her body-guard, Donald Dolder, had stepped on her train. We barely had time to dodge a chair which she heaved in his direction. Her costumer, Doris Marsh, was trying to re- strain her, but we decided to retreat in haste. This event did not deter us from visiting her former director in the asylum near Pasadena-Edward Barrow, poor soul, has lost his mind completely. We found him at his favorite occupation, that of shutting the door connecting his two rooms and poking a huge bunch of straws through the key-hole, one by one, and then going to the other side and repeat- ing the process. Andrin Cain, the head nurse of the institution, informed us that he was blissfully happy in this state but if he 'were prohibited this pastime he would weep inconsolably until his straws were returned. i SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1940: Started to return to Sycamore by a northern route. Going through Minne- sota this morning our train was delayed for an hour in a little village called Wadena. We spent the time wandering through the Woods and what do you think happened? Why, we came upon a little white cottage surrounded by hollyhocks. Inside we heard a happy voice carolling, "Home, Sweet home." When we looked in the door, we discovered our determined Mrs. Parker, blissfully washing the dishes, and accompanied in her singing by the "Goo, Goo's" of Mark Jr. The shock was too much-we shall never recover!

The lines are uproariously funny having been written by Anita Loos. It is to be given at the Community Center on May 29. Everyone knows that it will be a huge suc- cess for Mrs. Parker, last year's director, is taking charge this year also. Edward Boies plays very well the pa1't of the kind of a bachelor girls don't want to marry. Mr. Chester Binney is his name. He is the sort of person who, when he comes into the room, makes you feel as if somebody had just gone out. A great deal of time was spent at prac- tices trying to keep Mr. Simmons who is played by Everett Sheley, and Chester Binney under control. We certainly had our hands full! Mr. Simmons is much attached to the painstaking Binney and therefore, you see, tries to wish him off on his daughter, who is just returning from a two years study in Chicago. Sally Fulton plays this part of Ethel Simmons and comes back to Sandusky to air her Chicago manners. She also brings with her Roger Shields of Chicago and Paris! Gordon Wetzel takes this role with much delight-he can dress to his heart's con- tent! Mr. Shields nnds much favor in the eyes of Mrs. Simmons who is in real- ity Katheryn Feil. This aristocratic wife looks upon her husband with much sus- picion. She wonders if those long meet- ings till four in the morning are really business conferences. The neat little maid is Annie-always trying to protect part of Letty Lythe, a motion picture ac- tress, who is an alleged lover of Chester. When she appears in Sandusky with her fiance Donald Swift-played by Bill Rus- sell, there is much that happens. Lila Wilson and Sally Otis are Ethel's chums in Sandusky. Lila is lispingly portrayed by little Dorothy Smith and Mildred Lecky is the thrilled Sally Otis. LeRoy Swedberg certainly messes things up by spilling the beans about Mr. Simmons and a lady in his taxi. The lady later turns out to be Dorothy Parke, who is Sadie Bloom, Simmons dancing teacher. Every- thing turns out all right, and, of course, Chet really proves he isn't so dumb after all. THE CAST Henry Simmons, a manufacturer ....,.....,.

Representative Alumni THESE representatives of Sycamore's graduates are but a few, of the many, who have proved worthy of the trust re- posed in them by their Alma Mater. It is hoped that through them and the many others, equally worthy, who go unnamed, Sycamore students will gain fresh inspira- tion. Dr. Arthur M. Talbot '75, was graduated from the University of Illinois in 1881. Since 1885 he has been on the faculty of that university, teaching Sanitary Engi- neering and Theoretical and Applied Me- chanics. He is now second oldest faculty member from the point of service. Though now a Professor emeritus he is still en- gaged in active research work. Through his varied services Dr. Talbot has re- ceived many degrees and awards. One of the outstanding of these is the "Washing- ton Awardj' conferred upon him by the "Western Society of Engineers." This was given him in recognition of his life work as a student and teacher, investigator and Writer, and for his enduring contributions to the science of engineering. He was the third to receive this award. President Hoover was the first. Thus in this way, and in many others, Dr. Talbot has been recognized as a leader in the neld of en- ,Qs gineering in the United States. Dr. Tal- bot himself continues to regard his work lf- as engineering teacher the important ' 93 work of his life. , K Lowell B. Smith '03, now a prominent .,.-,'- Kr: -j . . rr attorney in Sycamore, graduated from the University of Illinois in 1908. He also re- ceived his L. L. B. fro-m that university. Mr. Smith was States Attorney from 1912- 1920. He is known as a loyal friend of the High School, glad and willing to talk before its assemblies and intensely inter- ested in its athletics. In the person of Mrs. George Milles '16, we have an example of a modern woman who combines professional and home life. One of the youngest women ever to re- ceive a Ph. D. in the United States, she has specialized in a different field, that of Human Embryology and Histology. She has taught at Northwestern Dental School and at the New York Homeopathic Medical School, also doing special re- search work for the New York Society of Ear Specialists. Just now her chief in- terest is in her young daughter, Patricia, but she still finds time to do special re- search work. Margareta Faissler '19, spent one year at Walnut Hill School in Natick, Massa.- chusetts. Then she attended Wellesley College, receiving her A. B. in 1924 and her M. A. in English History in 1925. She has made a record as a fine teacher while teaching in a private school in Tulsa, Oklahoma and Dallas, Texas. Now she is studying European History at the Uni- versity of Chicago. We suspect that it will not be long before another Sycamore graduate will receive that coveted Ph. D. l'5-il .".' ii -Tis P if :" Qfif-ffii-":rii973QTi f" "'i' ..

Adam CliiTe attended the Sycamore schools, and graduated from the Sycamore Commun- ity High School in 1885. He taught school for a few years, and then became a stu- dent at Northwestern University Law School. He was elected to the House of Representatives, and later to the State Senate in Illinois. He was elected Presi- dent Protem of the Upper House and sev- eral times served as Governor of Illinois during the absence of our Governor and Lieutenant-Governor. Judge Cliffe was elected Circuit Judge of this district and in the later years of his life was the Federal Judge in Chicago. Judge Adam C. Cliiie lived in Sycamore with his family all of his life, although his business kept hixn away from home a great part of his life. His son, Thomas, graduated from our high school, and his older daughter, Edna, would have graduated with the class of this year, but she moved to Evanston with her family after the death of her father. Judge Cliife was always willing and eager to help Sycamore in any possible manner. His death, two years ago, took from Sycamore, one of her finest, ablest, and most beloved men. It is with pride and admiration that the Sycamore Com- munity High School can claim Judge Adam C. Cliffe as one of her graduates. LOUISE WATERMAN, '31, Page One Imnclrecl two Alumni Log Q, " ' .

Paracelsus. MANY classes have gone forth from the ranks of the Sycamore Community High School. The first class was grad- uated in 1875, and of that class is our old- est alumnus, Prof. Arthur M. Talbot. In 1878, the smallest class in the history of the school was graduated. There were two members in this class, Oren B. Nichols and Flora Seacord. Close upon this rec- ord comes the class of 1876, from which only three people were graduated. On the other hand however, seventy-two were graduated in 1924. No other class has ever come near this record. From the irst graduating class in 1875, to this year, 1151 students have been graduated from the Sycamore High School. Many of our alumni think of high school as the old building that once stood on the corner of California and Sycamore streets. In 1916, however, it became necessary to draw up plans for a new school, because the increase of students attending the Sycamore High School was so great that all could not be accommodated in the old building. So in 1917, at the beginning of the second semester, the new building on East State street was completed and ready for use. The old building became the Central School, and it was completely de- stroyed by fire February, 1926. Since the establishment of the Syca- more High School, our athletic teams have always been noted for their fine sports- manship. Our basketball teams have brought us fame, winning many tourna- ments and championships in the Little Seven Conference. In 1907, our team ran up an almost unbelievable score of 101 to 13 against Marengo, and that is the only occasion in the basketball history of the ig school that we have won by so great a ,, score. Our teams for the past few years eg 5 have been living up to the fine reputation . f set by the alumni. fig Many of the graduates of our high ' on r- : ,' -H 'ag . . ,r, 8+-ex.. 1-9 . school have won high recognition for themselves in the various phases of life. Some made the greatest sacrifice of all, giving their lives for their country in the World War. Many excelled in scholarship and athletics. Prof. Arthur M. Talbot, a member of the iirst graduating class in 1875, is now the retired dean of the School of Engineering at the University of Illinois. Fred W. Waterman from the class of 1886, attended the University of Illinois, and is now president of the National Tube Company of the United States Steel Corporation. In 1890, Emily Waterman was graduated, and she is now a widely known reader. George A. James, Circuit Clerk and Re- corder of Deeds of Sycamore, is a mem- ber of the class of 1896. In 1897 Prof. A J. Blanchard and Miss Sarah Robinson asked the graduating class of that year to help 1'e-organize the alumni. Mary West- gate Ward and Anna Brower Carlson of that class were put in charge of this task. Every year since then the Alumni of the Sycamore High School have held a meet- ing. Roy H. Brown, class of 1902, attend- ed University of Illinois where he received his A. B. and L. L. B. degrees. M1'. Brown is now an attorney at Rockford. Lowell B. Smith, a prominent attorney in Syca- more, graduated in 1903, and went to the University of Illinois Ray Love, Sales Manager of the Anaconda Wire Corpora- tion, was in the graduating class of 1905, and attended the University of Illinois where he was a member of Phi Delta Theta. The following year was a milestone in the history of our high school. The first Oracle of the Sycamore High School was edited by the Senior Class. Ira Wetzel was the faculty advisor, and Nina Gabel Fink was the editor.

Quarnstrom, a Warrant Officer in the United States Navy and who has traveled in many foreign countries, left our high school with the class of 1911 to begin his adventurous career. Ross Millett, for some time deputy sheriff here, graduated in 1922, and is now studying for his bar examinations. Francis Hart, a member of the class of 1923, is rapidly advancing to a high position in the Anaconda Copper Corporation. Francis Resch, also from the class of 1923, has rapidly risenin journalis- tic Work until he is now Business Manager of the Feature Service of the Associated Press at New York City. Allen Sims from the class of 1924, received high honors at Lane College, Jackson, Tennessee. Ray Helson, another member of the class of 1924, is now manager of the Strand Theater, Owosso, Michigan. Still another member of the graduating class of 1924 is John Faissler. He graduated from the University of Illinois in three years, and is now studying law at Yale. Albert Leonard, class of 1925, attended the Publix Theatre School in New York City, and is now Assistant Manager of the Granada Theater in Chicago. Dayton Ward, also a member of the class of 1925, attended the University of Illinois, and is now Deputy Sheriff in Sycamore. Marion Whittemore Lange, class of 1925, attended Rockford College and the University of Wisconsin. She is now living in Madison. Sycamore High School has had the honor of having three of her former stu- dents be president of his fraternity at the University of Illinois. Dayton Ward, 1925, was president of the Phi Gamma Delta: William Fulton, 1924, president of the Phi "It is easy to mould the yielding clay, And many shapes grow into beauty un- der the facile hand, But forms of clay are lightly broken: They lie shattered and forgotten in a dingy corner. ' Delta Thetag Edward Safford, 1925, pres- ident of the Farm House. Edward Hol- comb, now at the University of Illinois, is a member of the glee club there. Among the other students of the Sycamore High School at the University of Illinois, are James Joslyn, Robert Fulton, Clyde Con- lin, Lyle Coolidge, Jane Hammersmith, Florence Fox, and George Dooley. Mar- guerita Faissler is attending the Univer- sity of Chicago, and Lucy Boies is at Na- tional Kindergarten at Evanston, Illinois. Evelyn Boyle is training to be a nurse at Westlake Hospital in Chicago. Donald Koehn, captain of the 1926 basketball squad of the Sycamore High School, is a member of the freshman squad at Iowa State University. Kathern Chatiield, is also attending the University of Iowa. Mildred Marshall is at Lake Forest. Don- ald Michaelson is studying engineering at the Colorado School of Mining. Pauline Waterman is attending the University of Wisconsin, and Winifred Foy is studying at Carroll College at Waukesha, Wiscon- S11'1. A few of our students have won recog- nition in the musical world. Byron Wy- man, 1921, is leader of By-Wymans Or- chestra which broadcasts nightly from Kansas City. Marvin Wetzel, 1928, is also a member of that orchestra. Harold O'Brien, 1928, is leading his own orches- tra and also attending Normal. Carl An- derson, 1929, is a member of Ray Miller and his Brunswick Recording Orchestra and is now in New Orleans. Thus have the alumni of the Sycamore Commtuiity High School brought fame and recognition to their school and them- selves. That class that is leaving the high school this year, and the classes that will leave in the near and distant future, will strive also to make our school proud of them. LOUISE WATERMAN, '3l.

Wild confusion! Shout- ing voices! A mighty crowd surging around the steps of the cathedral. No, dear fel- low-students, this is not the mob scene from Hamlet, nor Julius Caesar, but the wedding of our charming teacher, Mrs. Parker, nee Miss Hollands. The bells be- long to the cathedral, whose name is Saint John's and which is situated in down- town New York. Yes, she at last has suc- ceeded in capturing a poor defenseless man and has decided to instruct him alone on the beauties of the English language. But I wander! A murmur arises in the crowd! A stunning Rolls Bumps is draw- ing up to the entrance. The bride! Here may we add that the groom is of little or no importance at a wedding. The bride alights amid a chorus of cheers, bearing the fainting groom on her arm. She is startlingly arrayed in a bright red sweater, orange skirt, pink picture hat and purple hose. The groom, poor captive, has on a convict's suit, and is followed by the best man, none other than our own Mr. Terrell, who carries the ball and chain. Miss Keeler, who is the maid of honor, is wear- ing an evening gown of purple calico, with orange and pink dots, to harmonize with the bride's costume. The church is filled to overiiowing. Thirty thousand people! The S. H. S. faculty have ringside seats, and the cheer- ing section, comprised of S. H. S. Senior English students, have a block S facing the audience, so that the eiiect of their lusty voices will be duly appreciated by the guests, They have at last memorized Hamlet's soliloquy, and are going to give it all together, in addition to the custom- ary oskee-wow-wows. The strains of Irving Berlin's wedding march iill the church, and the bridal party rush down the aisles to their places. The service was quite impressive-in fact, I'm sure that none of the guests present will ever forget it. I, however, being a mere reporter, am not supposed to remember things like that. Ed. B.-"How is her line?" Raymond P.-"Judging from the crowd following her, it must be a tow line." "" Art. C.-"How near were you to the right answer?" Edw. E.-"Two seats away." Albert M.-"I want "The Life of Caesar?" Miss Osborne-"Sorry, but Brutus got ahead of you." Miss E.-"Why was this period in his- tory called 'The Dark Age'?" Ronald King-" 'Cause there were so many knights then." Wm. Warren-"When do leaves begin to turn?" Don Molander-"The night before exams." HEARD AT A BASKETBALL FEED James B.--"Pressed chicken tonight." John O.-"Yes, I saw the car run over it this morning." Henry, P.-i'That's nothing, they kept Luther on a 'Diet of Worms'." Kelly-"What course do you expect to graduate in?" Shoop-"In the course of time." Ev. Sheley-"What do you think,-I'm out for spring practice." Dora F.-"How lovely! How far can you spring?" Edw. B.-"I don't care if people do ac- cuse me of having the bigheadf' Laddie M. CConsolinglyJ-"I wouldn't let a little thing like that bother me, there may be nothing in it." A BIT PERSONAL Bob.

Woodrow Lindstrom had attended high school for three years and during the fol- lowing summer after his third year, he thought he would make a little spare money by selling mules to some of his farmer friends. So one of his nrst tasks was to get a sign painted of himself hold- ing a mule by the bridle. This completed, he showed it to his girl friend and said, f'Ain't it a good likeness of me?" "Yes," she replied, "perfect, But who is the boy holding the bridle?" Miss Reinhart was talking to the cap- tain of the ship on which she went abroad.
