nie- ' Ulf.fh.a,fZemJwL There are many interesting things we students and friends of T. F. don't know about our fa- culty. We'll tell you a few-but remember, it's strictly "Off The Record." Did you know thati Miss Helen Brazzill has a lovely soprano voice which we should all like to hear a lot more of . . . Miss Katherine Brazzill is quite the expert in selecting choice pieces of glassware and is studying advanced chemistry on the side . . . Mrs. Ruth Hale Canaga is of the famous Hale family of which Nathan Hale was a member. If he weren't so busy with speech and debate, Mr. Earl Davis might very well coach athletics, being well qualified. There is hardly a new book which Miss Iosephine Dempkowski hasn't read. When in high school, she was voted most studious . . . We have on our faculty one man who is able to read Greek-Mr. Raymond Elvin studied it in college . . . Our very scientific Mr. Samuel Frey also swings a mean hammer and saw. He remodeled an old home into a beautiful modern-day abode . . . Miss Adeline Iaacks is an ardent stage play addict-she sees them all! Golf is another pastime of hers . . . Mr. Lester Kelly received his letter at the University of Illinois and he not only teaches health and athletics, but he practices what he teaches . . . And, surprise--our charming Miss Anna Schmidt can whistle with the best of 'eml She's almost as good as Elmo Tanner. Needle work is another of her accomplishments . . . Miss Mary Shemaitis takes dancing lessons regularly, has a champion diver for a sister, and has twin brothers . . . We have a composer with us-Mr. Franklyn Kingdon is composing a symphony . . . Mr. Harvey Lambka, our Latin teacher, is a collector of all sorts of plants and flowers-his main interest, though, lies in the various cacti plants-asticky subject, we'd say! Our handsome Mr. Aitken Young not only can make the frosh girls' hearts beat double time, he can also knit double time! Has a good voice, too . . . Although he's not at all corny, Mr. Iackson Kiester takes a great interest in crossing different brands of corn to see what he can get. . . And, as would be expected, Miss Fanchon Remund, our librarian, is an authority on books-she doesn't miss one! Miss Clara Ihrig was once a counselor at a girl's camp. And is also an excellent ice skater. Beauty must run in the McBrair family. Her sisters are just as pretty as she is. She also has a brother in service . . . Our quiet Mr. Arthur Smith was once associated with the University of Illinois Placement De' partment. He knows many of the outstanding athletes from Illinois. Our well-known athletic coach, Mr. Wilbur Petree, also has more than ordinary talents as a uwoodchopperf' We hear from reliable sources that he could throw a book case or cupboard togeth- er in no time... 1 . Mr. Iames H. Leonard not only teaches his interesting American Problems classes, but he can practice law on the side any time he has a mind to. Miss Lucille Slocum has been collecting rings for a long time now. The Library Club once had the pleasure of seeing some of her interesting specimens . . . Miss Elizabeth Kessinger knows all the tricks of big politics. She should, because once upon a time she was secretary to a "big-time" politician in Springfield. . . And, among our interesting faculty, we have a man who was awarded the Purple Heart for courage in World War I-Mr. Fritz Nelson . . . Imagine going to forty-eight different high schools! Well, Miss Virginia Martin did just that. Her papa is a chemist and was transferred frequently, so Miss Martin went too . . . Small, sweet Miss Helen Temple always looks so nice. And the reason? She designs and makes her own clothes. . .

Mr. Clarence Koedyker is one man who can truly say, "This is my houselv He built his own home all by himself . . . They say men are just grown up little boys fnot entirely grown upj. We kind of wonder at Mr. Lawrence Luce. He owns one of the most elaborate electric train outfits around these parts . . . Miss Sigrid Moe, our very busy sponsor of publications, is especially surprising. She not only looks enthusiastic about the students, efforts, she actually is . . . Surprise! Reserved, business-like Mr. Henry Legg was once a traveling salesman. He sold en- gravings for high school year books . . . Mr. Bruce Miller worked his way through college. And little would we guess what he did. No, he washed dishes . . . Another ambitious man was Mr. Henry Potts. He also "washed his Way through college" Only he had an advantage-it was in a sorority house. . . Miss Margaret Etter gained much of her experience in cafeteria management and menu arrange- ment in hotels. She was a waitress and worked up .... Every job under the sun was held by Mr. Stock during the years he worked his way through college. And, finally, did you know that Mr. Harold Christian rides to school every morning on his sturdy bicycle? Little did you think that we had such a very human, likeable faculty. They have to be kind of ucrabbyi' now and then, but, honestly, they're swell!
