As I think of this quality I see a runner in a race, with every possible im- pediment that would hinder his running removed. All of his energy is bent on giving his best in running. Knowing he has done that, he will be satisfied, even though there may be a competitor who runs more swiftly than he. Winning, he is quietly grateful and pleased. Losing, he can, without bitterness of spirit, see another win what he wanted. The spirit of good sportsmanship is stripped of self as a center of interest-the chance to do a Fine thing in a fine way looms above everything else. Life is not so organized that one is always bound to win. But no situation can arise in which one is not privileged to be fair and generous. Looking inside, a good sportsman sees his heart ready to go all the way in forgetting selfish interests and finding a place where he may give largely and freely of his best self. as guage -fe -aa- he wma a 11937 Eleven T H lE D R ll lF 'I' FERRELL E.

During the second quarter, we made a touchdown. A school party was held, andkwe were admitted free, as we had bought the most copies of the Drift. Many sophomores were outstanding in sports. After the half we were old, experienced players. Class officers were Howard Parrish, president, Byron Shivers, vice presidentg and Melvin Akers, secretary-treasurer. Miss Broverman and Mr. Oliver were our class advisors. No Junior play was held, but a dance was given, the proceeds going to our treasury.

This year we are called "Sophies." Very early in the year we held a meeting to elect our class officers, and we think we selected wisely. Our class advisors are Miss Holderread and Mr. O'Brian. Several times in the spring we acquired spring fever- anyway we forgot we had a good name to build up. At an- other time we decided that lollypops were good for our nature. We know that these lollypops did not aid our dig- nity but we were thinking of our stomachs and the teachers' reactions to this foolish folly. The class as a whole has not had many important things to do with the school activities but next year we are sure to bring much fame to the Junior class of this school. Watch us ! Bernard Achenbach.

We were a bewildered group confused-.by a game of which we knew nothing. We did not linow what to do. t 'With coaching we improved. There was more of a cer- tainty in our actions. The fumbles were not so many. We learned the rules of the game and how to use them to the best advantage. Being a good sport in defeat or success was also part of our training. . Some time later one would see instead of clumsy players a competent team, a precision group working together to secure the best, but still being able to learn more. Our,class is the team. The coaches are the teachers, doing the best that they can to help us. The school year is a football field, divided into sections so we can tell more easily where we stand. Some will have been unable to carry on and will have dropped by the wayside, but the game will still go on. Q ' George Ritscher.

Wall, has made a definite mark in the history of the T.T.H.S. bands. Mr. Wall took the band under adverse conditions, as thirty-five musicians had left the organization due to graduation. To fill this gap in the personnel and to elevate the band it had maintained under Mr. Asbury's direction, Director Wall established a second band of 60 members. Secondly, he organized a marching band. This band entered the marching contest at Illinois State Normal University, and after several weeks of drilling went out on a rain-soaked field, not only tq win first in Class B, but to carry home the loving cup as the best band of all classes. With marching out of the way, the band turned its eyes to the highest attainable honor, which was that of being the National Champion. The group practiced at night as well as the day in order to go to Peoria for the District Band Contest on the third of April. Here they won the first division in Class B, as well as first in sight-reading. Two weeks previous to this contest, several band members who won in the elimination contests held here journeyed to Peoria to win more firsts in the Solo and Ensemble contest than any group from Taylorville had ever won before. There were thirteen first division winners. Of these nine were soloists and four were quartets. The other six entries placed in second division. The winners will go to the State Contest at Champaign. At the time this article is being written, the band is practicing very diligently for the State Contest which is a little morehthan a week away and if the band plays as it is capable of doing, it will, and without a doubt, win first division with national recommendation.

CHEERLEADERS When Mr. McAdam called for cheerleader tryouts, about twenty of our boys and girls gathered up the courage to get down on the gym floor and lead the student body in some yells. Since each one who tried out got votes, Mr. Walters decided to make cheerleaders of all of them. Miss Broverman and Mr. Thompson organized them and helped them to work together. They were divided into two groups, one under Harry Crawford's leadership, and one under Betty Lou Frampton's guiding hand. They worked out letter formations and performed for us during the halves of many of our basketball games. This fine group of boys and girls sent many a basketball fan home with a sore throat, for they knew how to get the noise out of us. All of the cheerleaders received letters and seemed very proud of them. Although a few of the cheerleaders are seniors this year and will not be with them next year, we are sure this group will go places in the future. 11937 - Fifty-four THE DRIFT First Row: Busch, Cochran, Rightnowar, McWard, Y-igjggjgh.

T. H. S. By EBBIE GREEN JOE HOPSON joe Hopson, the captain of our football team, was a great lineman as well as a captain. He was one of the main cogs in getting the op- ponents out of the way so our backiield could make long gains and sometimes go for touchdowns. He was also as effective in stop- ping his opponents from making long gains and touchdowns. His sophomore year Joe ran into some hard luck, getting his collar bone broken and having to stay out for the balance of the season. How- ever, this didn't discourage him, for the next year he was out play- ing the game he liked so well. His senior year he became one of the most vicious linemen in this part of the state. Football was not the only sport that Joe was interested in, as he played a part on our basketball and track teams. Joe possesses many fine qualities and is liked by every- body. I would like to join with Coach Johnson in wishing you success and good luck, and we know that, as the hard worker you are, you will accomplish many fine things in your future years. BILL SHEAHAN Bill played center this past season on our football team and proved to be as dependable and a very ellicient center. He also fig- ured in the scoring columns by in- tercepting a forward pass and scor- ing a touchdown-a thrill most centers never get, as it is most un- usual for these men to score. Sheahan was out all four years and three of these seasons he played full-back on the second team. This season Coach Johnson needed a center very badly to H11 the place of Curtis, our last year's center. Bill tried for this position and did a fine job in there, always lighting it up, giving all he had to win. Although football was the num- ber one sport for Bill, he was seen at track and basketball practice. 1 1937 S ixty-seven I would like to join with Coach johnson wishing you success and lots of good luck in the years to come. We shall be looking forward to hearing great things about you in the future. TOM MORGAN Tom was on our squad two sea- sons and both years he played end on our reserve team. Tom was a good, hard Fighter and always had a big smile for everyone. He was another one of these fellows that furnished competition for the first eleven. Football, however, was the only sport Tom competed in during his time here at the T. T. H. S. We want to wish success, happi- ness, and the best of luck to you, Tom. BOB RASAR Bob has been with us three sea- sons of football, and during this time he has played end and in the backfield. Although he was not one of the first eleven, he was another of these valuable reserve men. Bob has a fine spirit both on and off the football field, and it has gained him many friends. He took his football seriously, and was at all of the practices dur- Tll-lIlE DRIFT ing the season. This kept him in good condition and made him want to play all the more in this game. Bob broke in several of the big games this season and earned enough points to get the letter T award. Bobbie, we want to take this op- portunity in wishing you the best of luck in the future, and hope you will always be as happy as you were during your high school days. Remember us as your best friends. RALPH WILLIAMS Ralph played in the line on our football team, and carried out the tradition of his brothers before him to be a fine player. Although he was a reserve lineman he could be counted on to do his duty in a game. It was our bad luck we had this fellow only one year, as he spent his first three years in the Palmer High School. In addition to a line scholastic school record, Ralph had a fine character. He was well liked by his fellowmen. He took his prac- tice seriously and was willing to learn the game of football. So in parting with Ralph, We would like to offer our sincere feel- ings in wishing you much success and happiness in the future. 1 9 3 7 - egg A as-se, Sixty-eight THE DRIFT BOBJOHNSON Bob was one of our dependable linemen who played on our team this year. Although he was rather small it proved to be no handicap to him when it came to handling his job. He was always eager to play, and he reported to practice every evening, this being one of the many line qualities that he pos- sessed. Each year he was one of the first to report for football when the Coach sent out his call for candi- dates. He also displayed a fine sportsmanship on the football field which gained him many friends. I would like to say to Bob that the Coach and I have enjoyed working with him, and we wish him luck and hope he will continue to be the great person he is. HARRY FRANCHOIS Harry will be a great loss to us through the process of graduation this year. He played in the line on our football team this past sea- son and did a very fine job of it. During his four years in school he reported every year for football. His first years out he did not make the regular squad, but this did not discourage him one bit, for the next year would find him out again doing his best to make the squad. And after many nights of hard work and practice, Harry made the squad and became one of our most dependable linemen. This proves that he was a fellow who could stick with something when the going was the hardest. We would like to wish you much success and happiness in the fu- ture, Harry. May you always be able to come out on top of all your difficulties as you have in football. MARION SPEAKMAN Marion is another that gained many laurels as a football player this season. Although Marion had been out one season previous to this one, he made one of the cogs in our football machine and per- formed his duty as a player well. His first season out he started on the wrong foot and dropped out of football entirely, but came back later with the determination to make the squad and did it. Marion was well liked by all of his fellow players and was always ready to do his part. One of the best games he played was the one we played against Feitshans in Springfield. We would like to wish to you, Marion, the best of luck and hope that we will be hearing great things about you in the future. ee s 1937 Sixty-nine EDWARD NEIKES Eddie was one of our outstand- ing linemen. Although this was Eddie's First year as a regular, he did a very fine job and was depend- able at all times. He was respon- sible for a lot of the blocked kicks that occurred on our opponents' teams and was always in every game, giving all he had to win that particular game. Football was not the only sport that he was interested in, as he was also on our track squad. He spe- cialized in throwing the weights, and this year is making a bid for a regular place on the 880 yard relay teams. Eddie, we hope that you will continue your school work and we will be expecting to hear great things about you in the future. May you always have the best of luck and much success and happi- ness come your way. JAMES SHAW james was out for the team three years, but he did not realize that he could play football till this past season when he played end and be- came one of the best ends we have had in a long time. james was a quick thinker and could act as fast as he could think. 11937 It -- THE DRIFT I think the best game of football james played in was the final game against Pana this past season. We are going to miss as valuable a player as james this coming sea- son, but the time has come that bigger things are in store for him. And we know he will take advan- tage of all these things, being the type of fellow he is, and we want to wish him success, happiness, and lots of luck in the future. BRUCE JONES Bruce is another member of this season's football team we lose through graduation. He played fullback on our team, and when it came to backing up a line or get- ting a few yards when they were needed most, Bruce was the fellow who always was there on the job, and he always did a very fine job. In Bruce's four years he played many positions, for his first two years out he played most every po- sition in the line, anywhere the Coach needed a man most. His last two years he played in the back field. Bruce has also been interested in track during his time in high school, the field events being his main interest. During the basket- ball season one could see Bruce in Seventy T H E D R 1 F T X---------L ---- no the gym always keeping himself in condition by wrestling or boxing, always anxious for the football sea- son to start. In fact he lived, slept, ate, and talked football at all times, one of the reasons he was the great football player he was. We know by the earnest and sin- cere worker that you are much success will come your way, and that your future career as a foot- ball player will be as pleasant as the years you spent in high school. So the best of luck to you, Bruce. JAMES PICCHI We had the pleasure of having James three years on our football team. This year he was our regu- lar quarterback and a very Fine job he did until he became too old to play on our high school team. James was well liked by his fellow players and displayed good sports- manship on the field. Track was another sport he was interested in, the low hurdles being his race. His junior year he com- peted in the state meet at Cham- paign and was disqualified in the semi-finals of that particular race. Track helped him develop the speed that is so much required of a good football player who plays in the backfield. We wish you the best of luck, success, and happiness, james. PAUL BRESH Paul was on our football squads for two years, playing in the back- field both years. Paul did not make the first eleven. These are the fel- lows who take all the pounding and hard knocks, without ever saying anything about it, and who are the main ones in helping make the first eleven what they are, by being the first eleven's opponents. Paul was also interested in track while in high school, the javelin throw being his main event. This season he is going to be a strong bidder for a place on one of the relay teams. We have enjoyed working with you, Paul, and we want to wish you success, happiness, and the best of luck. We hope you will always regard us as your best friend. ROBERT MILLIGAN Robert is another one of our most faithful players, who was out all his four years in high school. Robert was small and light, but this was no handicap for him, be- cause each year he was one of the first fellows you would see trying to make the squad. Robert was one of our reserve quarterbacks who mussed up many plays for the first wi 1937 Seventy e eleven and ran plays that had the first team guessing many times. You can see that his services were very valuable to us. His senior year he had a lot of tough luck, for it was this year that Bob had his collar bone broken, and was, consequently, kept from playing the latter part of the season. So we say to you, Bob, the best of luck, and may you always be able to stick to things in life as you have in football. EDGAR EDWARDS Edgar has been out four years for football, and has been a valu- able player in many ways. He has played most every position on the reserve squad and was always a willing and hard worker. These boys who stick football out for four years as Edgar has must be, and are, admired by their fellow- men, because reserve players al- ways get the tough jobs in prac- tice. It shows that a fellow is made of fine stuff when he sticks it out for four years. Football was the only sport that Edgar seemed to be interested in while in high school. We would like to wish you suc- cess, happiness, and the best of luck in the future, Edgar. We :rf Tl!-lIlE DRIFT know that, the hard worker that you are, you will climb many steps on the ladder of success. CLARK STEWARD Corky, as he was known to his fellow players, was another who was out his entire four years for football and was one of our regu- lar halfbacks during this past sea- son. He has played many positions during his four years. His great speed and good blocking made him a candidate for the backlield, a job that he did well. Corky was also a member of our track squad. He ran the 100 and 220 yard dashes and was on the relay teams. He was well liked by all that had dealings with him. We surely hate to lose men like Corky, who possess fine characters, and personalities like his. We under- stand that he is going to continue his school work, and we would like to wish him the best of luck. We will be expecting to hear fine things about you in your college work, Corky. JOHN MOLER Johnnie, captain of our basket- ball team this past season, turned in some fine work as well as a fine record. He was one of the tiny 1 9 3 7 W --- Se Ven ty -two THE DRIFT - forwards that was often mentioned in the newspaper as doing so much damage to opposing teams in the way of scoring many points against them. One of the best jobs John- nie did this past season was scor- ing so many points against Deca- tur. It seemed as if it was impos- sible for him to miss a single shot. I am telling about the game be- cause this Decatur team the season before won the state tourney and this year won second! John went well in all the games and was one of our most consistent basket scorers. Basketball was not the only sport he competed in as he was a mem- ber of our football and track teams. In track Johnnie usually pole vaulted, ran the low hurdles, and was on the relay team. So you can see he was very much an all-round athlete. John, we are going to miss you this next season, and we want to wish you luck, health, and happi- ness. BOB McWARD Bob was also a regular member on this year's basketball team. His position was guard, and he turned out to be one of the best guards in the South Central. His line dribbling and one hand shots from the free throw line gained him much fame as a basket- ball player. He, too, was a consist- ent point scorer and was the fellow who wrecked many teams' chances with his one handed shots and his speed and dribbling. Bob was also a member of our football team. When Jimmie Picchi became too old to play football, Bob stepped in his place at regular quarterback and did a fine job the rest of the season. Bob surely has a fine competitive spirit which gains him many friends. Bob, we want to say we have en- joyed working with you, and may you always have the best of luck, and much success, and may happi- ness be forever in your way. BOB COCHRAN Cochran was a member of our basketball squad this season, his position being forward. He helped make up one of the fastest com- binations we had this year, and he could always be counted on for some points whenever he was sent into a game. He liked to play the game and was at every practice that was held, trying to make him- self better at all times. Bob was also out for football several years,but basketball seemed 1937 Seventy-three - to be the sport he was interested in most. He was also referred to as one of the T. T. H. S. midget forwards by the newspapers, but was always able to do considerable damage whenever he was sent into a game. We understand, Bob, that you are going to school next year, and We want to wish you the best of luck. We hope to hear great things about you in the years to come. It has been a pleasure working with you, and we want you always to keep us in your memory as friends. BILL BUSCH Bill was a member of our basket- ball squad this season, forward be- ing the position he played. Bill, who is small but quick, always made it tough for anyone to score from his position, with the opposi- tion he gave. He was a good shot and could think and move fast, a necessity for a good forward. Bill also was interested in track and football while in high school. Bill, we want to wish you suc- cess, happiness, and the best of luck in the future. THEODORE LARGE We had Theodore only this one season, as he came from Owaneco where he spent his first three years. THE DRIFT He was on the first ten, and played center. Theodore had lots of iight, was at every practice and was will- ing to learn how he could become a better basketball player. I only wish that you had some more time to spend with us, as we have enjoyed working with you. May you always have the best of luck. SAM LUSTER Sam also came from Owaneco and had just one year with us. We feel that if you had had more time you would have gone farther than you did, for in one year you can't hardly get ac- quainted. But we have enjoyed working with you and consider you as one of our friends. We want to wish you success, happiness, and the best of luck. I would like to join with Coach and the athletic department in say- ing we have enjoyed working with you boys, as you have been very kind and pleasant to deal with. May your kindness be returned to you many times over as you pass through the years, and may the best of everything continually fall in your way. 1 9 3 7 fl -e ff-Yggalle-.-a .A fe -- Seventy-four T H IE D R ll F T IL fm MTE?

A. had its first get-together at a weiner roast held in Manners Park in honor of their Freshman sisters. After the weiner roast the girls attended the Taylorville-Hillsboro football game. After school on October 29, the association had another get-together -in the form of a tea. Entertainment was furnished by piano selections played by various members. A good time was had by all. On December 18 in a gaily decorated gym a Christmas dance was given. A color scheme of red and green was very nicely carried out. A Matinee Dance was held on February 19. Music was furnished by phonograph records. Everyone enjoyed himself at this informal affair. In the Volley Ball Tournament the juniors defeated the Freshmen and the Seniors defeated the Sophomores. In the final game the Seniors carried their class to victory. On April 13, the Basketball Tournament began. The juniors won over the Freshmen and the Seniors after an overtime overtook the Sophomores. On April 15, the Juniors and Seniors tackled each other in what proved to be a thriller. The Juniors portrayed their strength and ability by carry- ing away the championship. 1937 e .W I Seventy-eight THE DRIFT MAYFETE The theme of this year's May Fete is "The Conflict Between Ignorance and Wisdom" and "Enlightenment ,of Evils and Diseases." This beautiful event will be held at the Athletic Field on May 21. The high school band, directed by Mr. Wall, will play. Mrs. Ferrell Bryant will be the accompanist for all the dances. All of the girls in the school will take part in the dances. There will be various interpretive dances of fresh air, sun- shine, and water. The maypole will be wound by followers of the Spirit of Exercise, representing various countries. Our queen, Marjorie Ann White, will be crowned as the Queen of May. This gala affair will be something different and very interesting. I if -W --- --Wf- Seventy-nine I 1937 VS: 1 R THJE DRIFT 11937 THE SENIOR CLASS PLAY "THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYERH Aunt Polly ....

Tom Sawyer and his chum, Huckleberry Finn, decide to visit the graveyard to try the cat cure for warts. Arrived at the scene of their experiment, they are suddenly confronted with the figures of Doc Robinsong Injun Joe, a villainous half-breed, and old Muff Potter, who is a mere tool in the hands of Injun joe. The two boys hide behind bushes and by the light of the moon see Injun joe plunge a knife into Doc Robinson's back, the knife that belongs to old Muff Potter. Then, when the old man is unconscious, Injun Joe places the knife in old man Potter's hand, and when he regains consciousness, Injun joe tells old Muff Potter that he and he alone has murdered Doc Robinson. The boys flee from the graveyard, and because Injun joe is such a dangerous character, they are afraid he will "drowned" them. They sign a pledge never to reveal the truth. Walter Potter, son of old Muff Potter, renounces his sweetheart, Mary Rogers, because he doesn't wish to bring disgrace upon her, and the two boys are beside themselves trying to find their way out of their dilemma. In a masterpiece of comedy construction the way is cleared for them and the real culprit is exposed. Tom and Huck find the hidden treasure that is buried in the cave, rescue Tom's romance, Becky Thatcher, and become the heroes of St. Petersburg-the entire town turning out to pay them homage. .a a-Pile 1 9 3 7 Eighty-one ef e- C e ef T H is io at lm' First Row: L.

The first year typing and shorthand teams placed first. The second year typing and shorthand teams were second. The bookkeeping team placed third. In the morning the cup was carried off by Effingham. In the afternoon the first event was spelling. Lillian Gilpin won first, and Dorothy Millman won second. The team won second. In the commer- cial arithmetic event our team placed second and Dorothy Millman won first as individual. The last event, the general test, was the determining factor as to who should get the cup for the afternoon. Shelbyville's total of points was only one point ahead of Taylorvi1le's total. This contest has nothing to do with going to the district. The typing shorthand, and bookkeeping teams will go to the district meet at Taylor- ville. The Drift will be sent to the printers by that time, and we will not be able to give you the results of the contest. Taylorville has usually done quite well, and we are sure they will again. 1 19 3 7 , , .i: .77 ' 7 7 ML' Y, ,,7-,l.- Ymgiilg ' Ei ghty-two 'Jr H IE D R 1 F T 1 -at fwwfvff 11-Bea, 'ff me ff he HUMIE ECONOMICS KCIUUB I First Row: Babich, Ettinger.

Eighty-three 31937 - e THE DRIFT HOME ECONOMICS CILUB Sing a song of sixpence, A pocketful of rye, Four and twenty blackbirds Baked in a pie- Our head chef this year, Glenna Gilliland, assisted by Cordelia Hershey, Vivian Rhoades, and Phyllis Siebert, have faithfully tried to make the crust of our Home Economics pie quite flaky and delectable, and its blackbirds the most appetizing ever. One of the most important black- birds in this pie flew out about October 22 to take with him our president and a small group to the annual State Convention held at Quincy. He had a true bird instinct of climbing to higher and more beautiful heights, for this meeting was our beginning step toward an affiliation with both State and National Home Economics organizations. Another blackbird with a private love of permanents and lipstick, invited Mrs. Wreatha Natterman to give us a demonstration on "How to Apply Makeup" at one of our club meetings. "A Travel Talk," the name of one of our blackbirds who came from a foreign nest was christened by Miss Broverman at a very worthwhile address in April. Dressed in green on the eve of March 19, still another of our feathered friends invited the agriculture and basket- ball boys to quite a lovely dance. We really worked hard to be able to sing our song of sixpence this year, which really means about eighty dollars was cleared by selling commercial candy at the basketball games through- out the season. These few incidents would certainly make a very flat look- ing Home Economics pie in themselves were it not for the ample allowance of basic material to hold it together, which has spelled for us tempting luncheon menus, meat cutting and cookery study, scientific menu plan- ning, and an endless host of others. The club has one outstanding debt left on its books-one that we can not and will not attempt to pay in money. With that thought in mind we wish to pay a sincere tribute to our capable leader and guide of our daily class work-Mrs. Vogelsang. 1937 r Eighty-four THE DRIFT -- - - -- r l GLlElE CLUB The Girls' Glee Club of twenty-four members has done splendid work this year under the direction of Miss Margaret Warner, dean of .women and director of girls' athletics. Virginia Pettus has served as accompanist. Their work has covered a large repertoire in three and four part harmony. The Glee Club has presented a number of programs, the most impres- sive of which was a memorial service for Chesleigh L. Garard. Other appearances have included the Lions and Rotary Clubs and the High School P. T. A. Second place was awarded the organization in the county musical con- test of 1935. They hope to win first place from their participation in the contest this year. First Sopranos Second Sopranos Anna V.

A. have maintained their fine record in project work during the past year. The thirteen boys with swine projects made a particularly good record, making a net proiit of 32,011.33 or an average of 3154.70 per boy. Lemoyne Repscher raised a phenomenal Black Poland litter that won five junior and two grand championships at the county fair and finished up the season by winning a blue ribbon in the Junior depart- ment of the State Fair and another in the Illinois Class in the open show. The crowning achievement, however, was turned in by Darrell Wareham, an F. F. A. Alumnus, who showed one of his Duroc barrows to the grand championship over all grades and cross breeds at the National Swine Show. The F. F. A. basketball team has had its most successful season, win- ning all of its regular games and tying for first place in the recreation league. The boys are now looking forward to the opening of the softball season. 1 9 3 7 as asf A+ ee . 1 Eighty-six K' M - fx! J C' ' Q' L ' x "' ' f . X cxx. 1 - 'wi '71, . M.. 'I - K 1 A "2 SWL!

SEPTEMBER About seven hundred players are getting in the line-up for our last kickoff from T. T. H. S.! A whole day of banging locker doors is too much for the faculty after a peaceful vacation-which really means there is only a half day of school. Many more days like this, and either the foot doctors or shoe dealers will start making big profits! Now, of course, we wouldn't have to worry about these corns and bunions if the Freshies just knew where they were going and when! Labor Day really means our last chance to go fishing-or to make Fish stories?? School really and truly began today-as it has a habit of eventually doing. Everybody is so enthusiastic about studying. A good looklat the band room shows us that we are welcoming Mr. Wall as our music coach. You know how rhythm affects the soul and and body-and we hope the mind! Moving the sewing machines out of Room 4 gave the boys an intro- duction to Mrs. Vogelsang. Do they need to see the stoves put up to know "The Way to a Man's Heart"? We don't think Mrs. Kramer, our new general science teacher, is less important by mentioning her lastly, but the Freshmen are so thick and plentiful we couldn't even get a peek at her! We're getting gypped out of a lot of education lately. The climatic conditions demand that school should be dismissed early each day. Then what do we do but have a good time right out in the sun, and "really get hot"? President Gariield died on this date in 1881, and we certainly killed Clinton in 19 blows today. Not at all bad for our first football game, is it? Ninety THE DRIFT - -WWW Miss Warner says that, beginning today, 25 cents will entitle you to vote for G. A. A. president. CHow much more do they want for the vice-president?j According to almanacs, the sign is in the head: therefore we proceeded to elect joe Hopson lord of our Senior tribe and have Bob Cochran selected as head of the Drift staff. Astronomy proclaimed their destiny. Every day in every way we're getting better and better. T. T. H. S. scored a lucky 13 to Bement's 0. Part of the school went out for a fire drill this morning! Do some of us need to wash our ears? There was the most wonderful man in convocation this afternoon who pulled a dear little white rabbit out of his hat. Warfield and Scott's real purpose was to give the Drift treasury something to hold. p OCTOBER Aren't you glad your birthday comes but once a year, Ruth De Hart? Is it quite comfortable to sit down? A sad and distressing tale-but it could be worse, 12 for Staunton. with 7 left for us. Somehow the Seniors get so enthusiastic about selecting their rings that Mr. Thornton has to assist them in getting through the door where Miss Terriere helps them worry over which one is most divine looking. One of our dear clan has been sadly wounded. As a result of a very valiantly fought combat, Mr. Cochran must carry his trusted right paw in a sling. We shed bitter tears to think he cannot enjoy the privilege of writing six weeks' exams with the rest of us. Our hard-earned quarters have invited Marjorie White to be our G. A. A. leader for the year. Our football team acts like a good race horse-they do A-1 work in rainy weather. A score of 24-0 shows plainly that it was too slippery for Kincaid to get even a foothold. A ee 1937 Ninety-one 6 l ra 1 ee 1 THJE DRIFT 30. It was only tea! 31. Mr. Wa1l's band marched their way to victory at the annual home- coming in Normal. NOVEMBER 2. Someone must have either had his lesson for once this morning, or else was overcome by a passionate love for Mr. Thornton: at any rate, the glass in his door looks as if somebody had tried to walk through without opening it. 3. Today's the day they give presidents away! Who did we get-Frank- lin Delano Roosevelt! 4. Bob Cochran and a Landon pin-can you feature that for a patriotic politician? 5. Feitshan's got walloped and then sat on in a ratio of 4 to 1 at Spring- field this evening. 6. We're sending all the teachers to an institute at Champaign to spend the day. Tsh, Sigh, Mary, have you been trying to organize a football team to get that bandaged arm? lffL"'u7 10. A very worthwhile convocation was sponsored by the American Legion this afternoon in commemoration of the signing of the Armistice. 11. What does November ll spell to T. T. H. S.? l. A true Armistice Day. 2. A grand and glorious triumph for our football season is the Taylor- ville vs. Pana score, which reads 36-6. 12 Don't those delicious odors coming from the Home Economics room about 12 o'clock the last few days make you fellows wish your girls were members? 13. Mr. Oliver is in a very generous spirit today-that is, with his quizzes -and on Friday the 13th, too! 16. If you ask Mary Renfro on Wednesday what happened on Monday, she'll say, "Oh, you want to know what happened today"? Senior intelligence! 1 9 3 7 -4 W - u Ninety-two THE DRIFT ge A. -2 Wilm DECEMBER Are the M. T. boys going to learn how to construct guillotines this year? They surely aren't going to put them in use about next spring? CDe Hart is issuing the theme subject, "One Year to Live."j This is the night our dear teachers tell our folks all sorts of nice fairy tales about us-in other words, it's P. T. A. Back to School Night. The G. A. A. treasury says its members must have rubber stomachs when it comes to financing a get-together weiner roast. It really was good, though, to see Frances Deal make Miss Warner "Run for Her Supper." It takes stronger nerves than drinking Postum will provide to stand many shocks like this. Taylorville tied with Hillsboro at a breath- taking conference game. What is this secret club that wears sky-blue-pink socks one day and hair ribbons the next? Much as we Seniors like to alibi ourselves with the Freshies, the other classes deserve part of the blame for the way the Drift pictures are going to look. Glenna Gilliland packed up her clothes in her old kit bag to travel to the State H. Ec. Convention at Quincy. Cordelia Hershey and Henryetta Carter went, too, but not in Glenna's suitcase! Another grand surprise just arrived in the form of a Nokomis 0, Tay- lorville 25 score in a conference victory. Grades are going out. The only comforting thought is that we're almost too big now for the woodshed method. The H. Ec. girls' candy sale was all over before school took up! The early bird got the worm, but who was he and what did he want with it? Don't you think it might be less expensive to burst balloons than bass drums, Ted? - Drinking was reported to be going on in the old cafeteria after school -and was sponsored by the G. A. A. H Dfnw - wmii 1937 Ninety-three ' - THE DRIFT JANUARY Mr. Ward Cnot Glenna's fatherj is certainly a tyrant! We're all Hat busted after buying his dear M. O. S. books that are certainly pains in our necks. Do those naughty Freshmen deserve a nice new lady teacher? Never mindg she's going to make them work some! The crisis has passed! Drs. Walters and johnson and the student body tried valiantly to rally our forces in a pep meeting and again during the operation, but Hillsboro's anesthetic was too strong. Guess what amazing thing Mr. Thornton told Coach's third hour study hall. CCoach was late, a very unusual thing for him.j "Well, my friends, I am here because Coach johnson isn't." The Indian name, Nokomis, roused our good old lighting blood, and we almost tomahawked them with a score of 43-22. 'Tis said that when a person grows so old, he ceases to have birth- days or else grows younger each year. But do his birthday presents always grow younger, too? What other explanation can there possibly be of the fifth hour chemists entertaining Mary Penn today with rattles and rubber-1!?? Mt. Olive didn't like itg so they came back to box our ears-just a little bit. FEBRUARY 4, 5, 6. Our boys took the tournament like Grant took Richmond! We sat on Rosamond, just politely defeated Assumption, and cer- tainly got sweet revenge on Morrisonville-which means we'uns pos- sess the county cage title! The juniors are inviting us to celebrate by attending their dance instead of a play this year. "Shorty" put a great big round tub by the study hall door today for it to rain pitchforks and nigger babies all day and still pour down! Yes, we haven't forgotten this is Lincoln's birthday, but what about Bob McWard scoring 19 of our 33 points that beat Pana?? 1937 -s 4ff - Ninety-four W, THE DRIFT e On to victory! We couldn't figure any other way to get ahead of Time and Assumption than just doubling them up. This is the 15th day of Februaryg consequently our basketball score is 30! Three cheers for Andy Yuskanich! He's going to be a model typing pupil pretty soon-only started his speed test over three times this afternoon. There seemed to be a three complex in our Decatur B. B. games this evening. At any rate we still think the scores okey doke, since they took the 13 and: we the 37. The social whirl is upon us again! We rushed from a perfectly lovely matinee dance out to attend a most distressing funeral at Hillsboro. Their count was 38 and ours but 35. Paul, did you smell an English test in the air this fine day? T. T. H. S. will give you a fine recommendation if you ever want to apply for a job on the weather bureau! You'l1 have to admit we don't make bad politicians after you've seen Marjorie White, our '37 Queen of the May and her two maids of honor, Betty L. Frampton and Evelyn Montgomery, whom we elected this afternoon. Taylorville basketball boys somewhat resemble an elephant! Not their trunks, but their dispositions. Benld squelched us once, but we remem- bered, even better than an elephant, and handed it back to them! Tom Morgan's even doing it now! These orange guzzlers in study hall are certainly multiplying. Everything's done on the installment plan in this modern day-even our moving out to Vandeveer H. S. Our basement lockers are gone, but, oh, the notes that were found! Did somebody ask if the excitement and cheering at the game were all for Gillespie? You might not be able to tell by the yelling, but Par- rish saved our reputation by one last point.

Winning the regional tournament is just one -step higher for our team. The best o' luck to you, boys! Mr. Walters said: All little boys and girls who would like to have a spring vacation and go to school until june signify by saying, yes. All opposed, no. Election returns say the no's have it by about 6 to 1. One is beginning to hear oratorical voices and see queer gestures around about as our students chant murder stories and death bed promises! Is it a bad case of coffee nerves? Not yet: they're begin- ning work for the county dramatic reading contest. 9 Sall over but the moanin'g our one consolation is that we had to have some pretty good players to get as far as the Beardstown game in the sectional tournament. "Won't you come into my parlor?" said the spider to the fly. Chang- ing the wording a little we voted on invitations to send to fond uncles, aunts, and grandpapas to let them know what we've been doing the last four years. It's probably just spring fever, but since we're gettin' eddicated it's called an epidemic of agitatis. At that, though, it's much safer to have than the scarlet fever that's going 'round. You remember the man and his donkey who couldn't please every- body: neither can the Seniors and their invitations. We're voting again today. There ought to be quite a lot of traffic in the courthouse now. Mrs. De Hart is collecting pretty names to go on Senior diplomas, and there is much speculation as to how many people may have to look up birth certificates. Will Dale Durbin have his name signed Mr. Dale Francis Aloysuis Durbin Esq. jr. 3rd? The farmer and basketball boys and cooking gals almost danced their little legs off up to their pockets inthe gym tonight. How much more proof do you want that the party was a success? Ninety-six THE DRIFT - e Not a thing's happened within the last 48 hours-a tragedy which may not occur again, again in months and months and MONTHS! Tryer-outers for the Senior play are thinking about "When You and I Were Young, Maggie," only meaning Tom and Huck, since the play is "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer." Oh, dear Latin students, you ought to be ashamed of yourselves for disillusioning us so. It was believed that we had an ardent group of followers for Caesar, and here we find you have been writing in your books. Goodness! This particular Friday before the Sunday after it' happens to be Good Friday, and it is of further interest in our school calendar since we are dismissed for the day. There is a dance in the old gym tonight, which we know everybody is enjoying, and are hoping the Drift Staff may enjoy its results more! The faculty very kindly want to take us a step farther on our respec- tive roads by letting us spend the day in Pana, attending a Guidance Conference for Seniors. APRIL You ain't the cheapskate we thunk you was, Bob! Who'd a believed you'd ever part with a hull nickel for a cigar! We still believe the smoke smells like a two-for-a-nickel! The gingham boys and the calico girls who bought basketball season tickets are dancing with each other tonight, entrance fees prepaid. We certainly ought to yell "You've got itg now keep it. Doggone itg don't lose it!" for our band members. They've brought us home an- other iirst from the district meeting at Peoria! Do Seniors really graduate because they have learned something or because their teachers finally give up in despair? We know Katherine Menietti can spell rat and mouse correctly but-tsh, tsh, to think she doesn't know the difference between them! 11937 Ninety-se en 'Il - --e--- THE DRIFT Moosic do have its charms-especially when Mr. Wall does his best to get us out of a little school work by leaning on the bell in the office. 9. Is everybody happy? We can sleep for two whole days while our beloved teachers go to school. Of course we wakened in time to watch T. T. H. S. place third in our opening track meet. REWARD for anyone who can show Mr. M. E. Thompson how to get his car out when a couple of bright chillun don't give him more than an eighteenth of an inch room to move it! He really had to work as hard today to get his dinner as Tommy Tucker ever did! All the tap dancing classes that were learning all the latest barn hops are out of style now. Our interest has turned to basketball and the juniors-who won the tournament! Mr. Dorris's commercial team went to Shelbyville for a little practice workout. We know it wasn't real work, for they only brought our school a ranking of second. Calling all cars and all people who can hoof it to come to the gym for our band's last concert of the year. We're coming up a notch to place second at the Annual Open Track Meet. You can account for Decatur's winning by remembering that we always have such sweet and unassuming manners. There are so many Senior cards that one sees them fioating hither and yon-and yon and hither! The county musical and public speaking contest was held at Edinburg this evening-a grand climax of the weeks of warbling and orating that have been going on. p Sixteen Seniors elected Bob Milligan this morning as our class repre- sentative to give a talk on graduation night. We're all certainly back of our new class speaker, Bob! 11937 Ninety-eight THE DRIFT '-'1 - l 23. Did Mr. Walters take Corky for a ride! He had to be at the C.

We do thank Bob King for saving the day by picking up Dale Durbin's solo so expertly when Dale's instrument wouldn't blow! 24. That was just a warming up exercise at Shelbyville! We won first place as a school and gosh all fish hooks, we think Viola Morettini did a fine piece of work to gain individual honors. 25. A little girl by the name of Alice Large has the episoodic-you know, the kind that makes you speckled all over for about four weeks and calls for a scarlet fever sign on the front door! And Mr. McAdam's just beginning to percolate again after the mumps! Maybe they both ought to have eaten a little more horse meat? It's really almost as good as Popeye's spinach! 30. He had an eastern accent that actually caused Ed Gleason to upset himself in his chair. He was a representative from the junior college at Springfield who explained to the Seniors how much work they would have to suffer with if any should desire to attend. In fact, our friend gave us so much wim, wigor, and witality we just had to place second at the South Central track meet. MAY 6. This is the day of days in the lives of the "Tom Sawyer" cast! If you consider that ham is worth a lot of money, we really have some ham actors! 7. HEADLINES: All pennies and books are to be in the library imme- diately, if not sooner. Therefore, consequently, as a result, Athe price of handkerchiefs will go down, since we won't need to sob in them any more about late book reports. 19-20. These are perfectly awe-inspiring days for the Seniors who go around the halls with quite superior airs and not the least sympathy for the poor fellows so scared at the words Final Exams that they can't subtract two zeros. 21. All the girls have been working hard to have another beautiful May Fete again this year. And we don't need to read the newspaper write- up to remember that it was a lovely production.

The Juniors and Seniors are all staying up pretty late at the prom this evening, but considering the occasion and the perfectly beauti- ful dresses-and of course the people-one can't blame them. The graduating class of '37 were awarded very impressive pieces of parchment called diplomas at the new gym-pieces of paper that mean a lot but can never equal their memories of high school days. Gradua- tion was the Final touchdown of our four years' work. The fact that we are high school graduates doesn't change the fact that most of our stomachs seem to be made of rubberg so you see why we appreciate the invitation to attend the alumni banquet! Taylorville Relays take place on our last day of real school activity. We can't overlook the fact that vacation has arrived, although we must remember that it is only a temporary rest period to enable us to put all we've got in our next job.

I decided to spend that time on discovering what had become of all my high school classmates. I pulled down a pile of old papers in the office and began looking at them.

W pilot of the plane, Harry Franchois, and the stewardess, Dorothea Eg, were slightly injured. Another notable figure, Katherine Menietti, the last word in typists, escaped unharmed. Airplane crashes are predicted to be greatly decreased in the future as a. result of the improvements made on the engines by those two outstanding inventors, Robert Milligan and Melin Boyd. I found various articles about the more intellectual members of the class of '37. The Webb, Matthews, and Campbell Publishing Company has just issued Bob johnson's latest book of poems. Donald Nelson, the television authority, has completed his machine which is probably the great- est in the world. General Frank Grgurich states that this will be a great help to the army in future wars. Eleanor Wallace's "Dictionary of the English Language" is rated above Webster's in most colleges. Patricia , the often married society leader, has declared her intentions to wid WRasar, the young crooner with Max Hausler's orchestra. Veraviar s, chairman of the Social Welfare committee, an- nounced that two more members of Park Avenue society haye joined her organization, namely, Betty Lou Frampton and Florence wG.abbegt.

Bob Cochrag, editor of the Chg' ago Eiiibune, and his wife, the former professional dancer, Virginia ms , are spending the Christmas vacation in Florida. Mary McGarry has accepted a position with Warner Brothers. Her job will be to do all the sneezing and hiccoughing for the characters in the cartoons. Mr. Guy Nash and Mr. james'Champ1ey, head of Warners, stated that Ed Neikes's cartoons would soon be released. Ma . Hggt has been voted the best dress designer since Adrian. IQ!-B-gggon was chosen as Martha Raye's stand-in. It's the voice that counts. Hen- rietta Carter and Mary Grace Fritts's play, " e With the Breeze," was bought by Warners and will feature Ruth eHa t and Richard Kimball, with Aldo Muraro directing. Work on Garrison IDavis's picture, "On Your Toes," was postponed until a later date. Gary broke his toe while swimming. How it happened no one knows, but we have a sneaky feeling that a fish bit it. In the world of sports I find that Coach Hopson of Yale has produced one of the finest football squads on the East coast. His team defeated r ce 's boys at the Rose Bowl in a very tightgame. Coach Moler of Harvard is likewise doing wonders with his basketball five. Lillian Gilpin won first place in the Australian crawl demonstration at Los Ange- les. Rena Bianchi was elected America's best woman basketball player. Viola Morettini won the ping-pong tournament at Chicago, and the tiddly- winks championship was stolen from Le Moyne Repscher by Orie Lee Roberts. Charles Bechtel, who designs streamlined cars, is working now for the Kerns and Williams Automobile Manufacturing Company. Marion Speakman, their high-powered sales manager, reports a sale of 15,000 cars this year. Zita Colleb usco 's responsible for the artistic arrangement of the interiors of these automobiles.

Captain Paul -3511 and his excellent police squad, Howard Gilbert, La Mar Griffiths, Arthur Leslie, and Robert Roesch, have once more shown their ability to capture dangerous criminals. ,They were greatly aided by the intelligent detecting of G-man Bill Sheahan. Their suspicions of Public Enemy No. 13 were verified by that great fingerprint expert, Sam Luster. Judge McWard, who presided over the trial, said that he had never before witnessed such brillian cross-examining by the two lawyers, Edgar Ed- wards and George L?G nd. Wilma Anderson and Glenna Gililand, co-editors of the "Woman's Home Companion," are advertising their issue for next month. It will contain some of theHBg of the year-such as "'The Dignified Coigwby Dorot y -gllierg "I Hate False Modesty," by Marjorie Effrlchg "Graceful Dancing," by Helen Shadowensg and "The Fine Art of Bunce," by Glenna Ward. These are all noted authors, and the editors feel quite proud to have their articles all in one editorsqglfin- selves have written brief biographies of Genevieve Filson and Leah X-V3,r,d, who are performing this season, tu ' etro olitan Opera House. By the way, Marjorie Whig and Eveleiiz 'y are the professional models who posed for the painting on the cover of the magazine. junior Bethard and Ivan Law, the two former Navy pilots, have just completed an around the world flight. Admiral Bill Green was at the scene of departure to wish them luck. Because of Admiral Green's illness fsea-sickness we suspectj he was unable to greet them on their arrival after the journey. Admiral Ralph York was chosen from three other offi- cers, Lester Mullen, Relio Cambruzzi, and William Miller, to do the honors.

Nadin and Eileen Nolan, their advertising man- agers, and Phyllis Seibert, the sales manager, are working on clever schemes to boost the business. In an attempt to revive that ancient form of amusement, Lorraine Walters has started an exclusive square dancing school. Tom Mqgggnand Billy Morrison furnish the music. One of Miss Walters's best pupils is Teddy Rambach. Teddy has just returned from an expedition to Africa and decided that he badly needed some exercise. Mary Renfro does the calling for the dancing. There was some difficulty in getting someone who could be heard above the music. Mary was quite a find. The Prasun Business College reports a much larger enrollment this year. This school has turned out many great typists-such as Mary Pic- chioni, who has kept the business straight for the Woodward and King Musical Instruments Company. Charles Erotko is the janitor and becomes quite angry when the students throw paper on the HOOP. Charles says that when he went to school he was not allowed to do that. Ted lgigghas invented a small, round pill that contains all the vita- mins of an ordinary meal. Mr. Rigg declares this to be a great help to all those young men who are too impatient o wait r their dinners when they have a heavy date for a dance. Clark and Remo Pettinelli, his able assistants, are laboring over a sugar-coated covering for the pill in order to work some dessert into the meal. Mr. Rigg has sent the details of his inventions to Senator Rudisill. The Senator is to aid him in obtain- ing a patent. 1,1 Much to my amazement I learned that Marie Hagler is now teaching penmanship in London. The British have a sudden craze for backhand writ- ing, and Miss Hagler was chosen to teach it because of her outstanding ability to write in this manner. Helen Parks, who teaches the Yankee slang to all the British she can get under her wing, was much elated to hear this bit of news, since they had both graduated from the same school with the class of '37. ---ea-W -uf I -- dvlfmw' 1937 One Hundred Five --f -2 THE DRIFT Bette Purkes recently became the bride of a noted army officer. One of her bridesmaids as Mary june Ritter. Mary june is the bookkeeper for the 1 and harm School. Mr. Busch and Mr. Shaw decided that some of our young men, as well as the women, needed charm and grace. Dorice S5-nigh teaches dancing at the school. Dorothy Thompson is the proprietor of the cafeteria. She keeps the men well fed with her excellent cooking. That is one of the reasons for the popularity of the school. Darline Turvey and Caroline White advise the owners as to how to make the men charming. Dale Park' swing band furnishes the music for the dancing classes. John Ro eggs was one of the first to graduate from the school. He says that his popularity has greatly increased and he has been offered a position on Broadway. And that, dear readers, is the result of the painful and numerous efforts on the part of the dear members of our faculty to make the class of '37 a good one.

We have been engaged in a great mental game, testing whether four years of high school are all that are necessary to be able to percolate with the cream of the in- telligentsia. About 200 players iiled out to the registrar that September day of 1934. He who met with the approval of Coach Walters was sent to the locker room to dress. A snapshot of that group as they returned ready for the game pointed to the jewelry everybody wore-a locker key. What lad or lass who wasn't wearing some green article felt very green indeedg hence the group were heralded as "green Freshiesf' Captain Dale Turvey was chosen as head of our team with Nello Pacioni and Jennie Jamison as sub-captains. Our referees for the first quarter were Mrs. Clawson and Mr. O'Brian. The game had really started! In a little pep up talk by Mr. Bryant, our Historian, about the hazardous tackles made by our dinosaur and monkey ancestors, we saw the opposing team sitting listlessly on the opposite side of the iield-the No Nothing Party! Mr. O'Brian and Mr. Thornton taught us how to let x equal the number of touchdowns we should have made, and then determine from that why we ran in the wrong directions. Miss Holderread suggested tactfully that perhaps those lost plays were because we couldn't speak English well enough to make our fellow players understand directionsg while Misses Esslinger and Dale constantly tried a mixture of verb conjugations with Caesar and Napoleon to give us an ideal of fighters. "Igpa Atinlay" was strictly forbidden in Room 26, but one wasf really letting down his side if he didn't learn to speak French in Room 20. Two decisive plays were made that year. They required much work and caused a great many headaches to perfect-Semester Exams! When the final report showed everybody on our side had safely reached the 70 yard line, we decided to celebrate by taking a three months' vacation! 1937 ' One Hundred Ten T H E D R 1 F 'ir if-relfff ii: e- aamm HALF The first of September, '35, Same old players-same old gameg but we were playing in the half, and we had a new name-Sophomores! It is very sad and distressing to relate, but the severe bumps and bruises, and perhaps just a trifle of egotism concerning the vastness of our great minds, made it quite difficult for some of us to adjust our helmets to our greatly increased heads. That demanded a good leaderg so Ted Rigg filled the demand for a new president. Bob Cochran, Vice President, and Mary Barron, Secretary-Treasurer, composed his cabinet. We encountered a good many new and strange bugs in the field that year, but Mr. McAdam and Mr. Webb came valiantly to our rescue with chloroform to preserve them and microscopes to see "what made 'em go." Most of us learned many years ago that a synonym for plain was easy, but when we tried to discover, with Miss Terriere's help, whether we were running around on the field in circles, triangles, or squares, we decided it was plane geometry! The rest of our uniforms were, for the most part, composed of pages from English, history, and foreign language books. A Final tackle against Exams gave him a broken leg and us a rest. THIRD QUARTER Nineteen hundred and thirty-five! Hardly a man is now alive who can't remember that famous game and year! Bruce Jones as captain started our ball rolling. Our shorthand, typing, and bookkeeping teams, Katherine Menietti, Lillian Gilpin, Dorothy Col- lier, and Viola Morettini, caught it on the bounce and gave us the honor of placing second in all the commercial contests. But, alack and alas! Mr. Thompson's chemistry classes, endeavoring to find what the ball was made of, blew it sky high! We immediately sent for the carpenter and his work- men CMr. Card and M. T. boysj to mend the damaged football. No, I'm not swearing at youg I'm merely telling you! It was soon ready for a ground kick-off to fall at the feet of "Ship Ahoy" CPat Cresswell, Bob Rasar, Dick Kimball, Ted Rigg, Lillian Gilpin, " ,, W 'I1,,::' ,,,, 1 l,,li"jT 1 9 3 7 One Hundred Eleven THE DRIFT Clark Steward, Edgar Edwards, Ed. Neikes, Genevieve Filson, Howard Gilbert, Guy Nash, and Mary Lou Knappj. One of the most unusual plays of the year was made by a brilliant young poet who was overcome by a stirring love and reverence for John Keats and bananas: "Bananas are beautifulg beautiful bananasg That is all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know." Toward the end of this quarter, a day was set aside for recuperation: seniors were invited to share our party in the gymnasiumg the Junior- Senior prom was our loving farewell to the Seniors. Banana poetry and moonlight dances! To keep such an epidemic from spreading, our teachers adjourned the game until the fourth and last quarter. FOURTH AND LAST QUARTER The time has come, the Senior said, To speak of many thingsg Of cap and gowns and senior proms, And of the pitfalls life may bring. The whistle blew for the last quarter, the Field was immediately cleared. Somehow we didn't seem to be able to get the old punch behind that ball. But, hurrah! The good old faculty members again came to our rescue! Mr. Oliver taught us a couple of fifty cent words that simply Hoored the enemyg and Mr. Thompson and his mustache walked out on the floor once and terrorized everybody. flt was Halloween, nor he didn't have a test tube ready to blow up either.j joe Hopson took our football and returned with an A-1 score for T. T. H. S. We changed it to a basketball, and then just set back awhile to yell and watch John Moler and his boys bring home the bacon. Viola Morettini and Katherine Menietti reached the 120 yard shorthand line. Our other shorthand students, L. Gilpin, K. Menietti, V. Morettini, and D. Abel, made a nice run for the 90 yard line. V. Morettini, K. Menietti, L. Gilpin, and G. Filson sat alongside the 50 yard line to type industriously for 15 whole minutes. That showed the splendid teamwork from our com- mercial department. 1937 ee A . page One Hundred Twelve ..- -gl : ,faery THE DRIFT - A E - -e Yet it also happened that a valued player, Mr. Ballard, would always have a seriously afflicted baboon to nurse on test days and would thus desert his fellow men. A time whistle blew to make room for great hosts of people to spend an evening with Lillian Gilpin, Virginia Lusk, Glenna Ward, Mary Grace Fritts, Louise Matthews, Ted Rambach, Dick Kimball, Eleanor Wallace, Viola Morettini, Edgar Edwards, Garrison Davis, Corky- Steward, and Bill Sheahan in "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer." But we had to get -back in the game again. However, as our time became shorter and shorter, and none of the half backs of our team were pronounced way back in their intellectual pur- suits, a queen was chosen to rule over us at our May Fete-Marjorie White. Likewise was much cheering heard for her two maids of honor, Betty Lou Frampton and Evelyn Montgomery. Our outstanding intellectual player was given the honor of represent- ing our team as its Class Speaker by proclaiming all its talents and virtues. And there were many others of our team also famousg in fact their names were as numerous as the cleats on our football shoes. Our class leaders, Joe Hopson, Bruce jones, and Clark Steward, urged the referees, Mr. Thornton and Miss Terriere, to provide us with new caps and gowns for our last few seconds to playg each one was awarded a, long, black, flowing gown and a pancake helmet with a tassel to symbolize our four years' victorious I-ight. The once strong No Nothing Party had slowly ceased to exist, it left a group of boys and girls of a union and 'democratic spirit! The students of T. T. H. S. made up our football. The eyes have been our ever-faithful teachers and councilorsg while the lace, the tie that has bound and held us together, showing the way, has been Mr. Walters.
