The soundrng of the peace bells was srgnrfrcant to the whole World and
especrally to the boys and g1rls who are faced wrth the responsrbxlrty of
securrng thrs peace We the Class of 1946 entered our last year at T T H S
Wrth thrs realrzatron frxed rn our mrnds and we have Worked contmually to
better frt ourselves for the tremendous task that confronts us
The able class leaders that we chose to represent us are as follows
Mrckey Ganey preslden B111 Bland vrce presrdent Harold Burns secretary
and B111 Adams treasurer
Our unoffrcral class motto seemed to b quallty not quantlty
Although our class numbered only nmety srx we drd not let thrs bother us
the many and varred act1v1t1es that We partrcrpated rn more than proved thrs
theory A great number of our class were members of the vars1ty football
basketball and baseball teams Some of our class formed the backbone
of the band Strll others were valuable members of the Drrft and PelMel1
s affs the Glee Club the F F A the Home Economlcs Club and the G A A
All of us are not destmed to become leaders the maforrty of us Wrll
fall rnto the group of those who follow Already several of our class have
answered the call and are rn the servlce of our country Undoubtedly many
more w1ll be called upon to serve therr country although We hope they W11l
do so rn a peaceful capaclty At any rate We the Class of 1946 vow that
we w1ll strrve to f1ll our place 1n the communlty yes rn the world whatever

This seasons football team was one of the
strongest downstate elevens. Under the direction
of Coach Wasilewski, they recorded six wins and
only one defeat. Their ability was recognized by
an independent survey which named the Tornadoes
the twenty-second strongest prep team in the state.
This poll placed them above scores of teams from
schools with an enrollment many times larger.
Such an honor is one of which any team can be
Since the Tornadoes were undefeated in the
Mid-State Conference, they won the first place title
for the second successive year. In outside competi-
tion, their record included one game won and one
lost. The season began with a win over Shelby-
ville in a sea of mud. They trampled the Rams to
the tune of 49 to O. This game was followed by
an impressive win over Nokomis. Then came the
l4 to U defeat at the hands of Champaign, a formid-
able opponent. Following this, were the two de-
feats of Hillsboro and Kincaid.
Next followed a thrilling win over our old rival,
Pana. ln the closing minutes of play, trailing 21 to
l8, Taylorville took a kickoff and began a deter-
mined march toward the Pana goal, 65 yards away.
They battered their way to the Pana thirty-yard line
against a heavy and experienced line. Then came
the climactic play, a perfectly executed, deceptive
shift in which the whole Parma line was out of posi-
tion and unable to stop Hurtte's touchdown pass to

Next they played Vandalia, rated highly
among the state teams lt was that game
which won for Taylorville a conference cham-
pionship. Taylorville defeated Vandalia 4C to
34 Following this game, Taylorville lost to
Mt Vernon in a game which Taylorville had
led during three auarters of the contest.
After the lflt. Vernon game the Tornadoes
won two successive v1ctories from Kincaid and
Greenville. Then Taylorville was defeated by
East St Louis in a strange gym on a strange
floor. The following game was lost to Charnf
paian Of tne twenty-four games played by
the Tornadoes at the time of the Champaign
garne Taylorville had won fourteen.
Then came the worst defeat in four years.
The Tornadoes were defeated on a cramped
floor by their old rival, Pana, by a score of 34
to 31 After this game the team won three
successive victories. Then Mt. Vernon won its
second game from Taylorville 3l to 26 The
final game of the season was won from l-lillse
boro by a one-sided score of 58 to 32.
Taylorville entered the Pana Regional tourf
narnent with confidence and courage. They
defeated Shelbyville and Kincaid on two conf
seoutive nights. Then they entered the final
night matched against their rival, Pana. Each
team had previously defeated the other. and
each was determined to win this all-important
game. Once again the gym was packed
The crowd was the largest ever assembled in
that gym. After a well-fought game Taylorf
ville had the shorteend of a 49 to 39 outcome.
lt was at Pana that the 1945416 Taylorville
basketball team completed the season. lt was
there that they distinguished themselves as the
fine team that they are. To win a ball game
may sometimes be easy, but to lose the game
and leave the gym with head held high is
difficult. Yet that is what Taylorville did.

Several meets have been scheduled for the season. The freshmen and
sophomores have a dual meet with Kincaid the varsity goes to an open
