They were not of the "pea-green freshie" type, although everyone looked upon them as such. With Miss Lundgren as adviser, the class was soon or- ganized. Bob Koch assumed the title of "Honorable Mr. President". Eunice Stuber was called upon to service as Vice-President and Esther Stuber as Secretary and Treasurer. The Sophomores proved to be very hospitable folks and welcomed the radiant Freshmen with an initiation party that was greatly enjoyed by all present. After their first excitement was over they soon became better acquainted with the teachers. High school life seemed very discouraging to some of the members 'and soon brought the loss of Viola Getz, How- ard Staker, Ruth Hodgson, Martha Foley and Donald Gillan. Cora Tunis soon moved to Pekin to continue her work. The others soon acquired courage after Santa's visit and their first year of school was over before they realized it. Sixteen of the number braved return the following September to try Sophomore life. None of them were disappointed. Miss Rhoades was honored with the title of Sophomore class adviser and Esther Stuber as Sophomore President. Russell Becker was again chosen to his office and Myrtle Davis now become the financial overseer. Cherry red and gray were chosen as class colors. The class in due time ini- tiated the Freshmen-failing to be as lenient as the preceding class. February 18, 1925, the famous class presented its first play, "Poor Father" to a large audience. Soon after, the horrors of the final exams were over, and the class enjoyed its last meeting as Sophomores at Pekin Park. The next fall the class met as Juniors. The Freshmen looked upon them and the Seniors as wonders. Clara Mae Washburn returned for only a few days but now Lucille Taylor entered-leaving us still with eight boys and eight girls. Miss Rhoades was again the adviser and Clyde Coddington was called to the presidency. Lucille Taylor was elected Vice-President and Matilda Moser, Secretary-Treasurer. Dur- ing the Hrst semester the whole school watched the progress in erecting the new high school building. During the second semester it was ready for occupancy and the Juniors were very proud of the new chemistry laboratory. The class presented, "Daddy Long Legs" during the year to another appreciative audience. During the season the class derived much pleasure and some knowledge by listening to the occasional quar- rels of their superiors, the members of the Senior class. The year closed the adventures of the class with the Junior-Senior banquet. This was the most humorous event in its history due to the energy, vigor and vim of the two classes. In September the class reassembled as Seniors. They now pos- sessed the knowledge they thought they did as Sophomores. What they lacked now was the desired diploma. Robert again became Pres'- ident as he did 'way back when we began our high school career. With Mr. Johnson as guide, the Echo staff was soon chosen and the Seniors were the busiest members in high school. The star basketball team Page Sixteen ...lm-mum m E ---------- THEECHO,'27 1--------- - of the year was composed mainly of Seniors. In November Freeman Diers entered our ranks from Manito to become a valuable addition to the team as well as to the Senior class. The Senior play "Only Me" was presented on December third for our many friends. Excellent pictures of the class members were soon available at Pyke's in Peoria. Myrtle and Dorothy were granted certificates to teach in April. The Echo explains the disposal of many of our happy hours of the latter days. Another play is in progress and soon we hope to see the di- plomas coming our way. May we then prove to be as loyal to our Alma Mater as we have tried to be to our school during the past four years. The Prophecy Mr. Charles Yeatman Adcox circumnavigated the globe in 1940. He saw and heard of all his former classmates on this trip and reports his story thus: ' "As I embarked from New York on the S. S. Echo, Whom should I encounter but Ben Miller, captain of the ship! On the second day out we sat in Capt. Miller's cabin talking over old times and listening passively to the radio. Suddenly we sat bolt upright! From station VVHIZ, Capetown, Africa, came the announcement of the vocal number by one of the promising, but hitherto unknown, artists of the Tremo- politan Opera. Imagine our surprise when we heard the sweet musical voice of Clyde Coddington, singing, "Gimme a Little Kiss, Will Ya Huh?" "Upon my arrival in China I went sightseeing and saw on a bulle- tin board the following announcement: "The most interesting basket- ball game of the season, Hong Kong vs. Pekin." Thinking it of interest to see the game, I inquired from a policeman the way to the gymnasium. On entering the Gym, I heard someone announce that Prof. Glenn Becker, a graduate of the famous Tremont Community High School was coaching the Hong Kong quintet. The game was very interesting to watch because of the ease with which the Hong Kong won the victory with a score of 54-8. After the game, Mr. Becker invited me to ride home with him. Riding home in Glenn's Rolls Royce, we stopped at a restaurant at Shanghai where I met Myrtle Davis, my old classmate. "After a most pleasant sojourn in China, I left by aeroplane for Petrograd, Russia. In this very beautiful old city I was much interested in the architecture of some of the very old buildings. In the center of the main street, opposite the statue of Peter the Great, stood a large building of unique structure. My curiosity was aroused. Coming nearer, I saw in the show window a display of auto accessories, and a new 1940 model of the eight cylinder Ford. I entered the building and was somewhat surprised when the manager came forward and I recognized him as my old classmate, Freeman Diers, who was known as 'The Great Ford Man of Russial' During the course of our conver- sation, he asked if I had learned that Dorothy Helleman was a mission- ary in Russia. "I continued my travels to Germany whcre I attended the cen- tennial in which Russell Becker had a leading part, as an acrobat. After . Page Seventeen El El THE ECHO, '27 the close of the Centennial, Russell joined me and together we went to Switzerland. While sightseeing in the Alps we came to the beautiful Mt. Dome which we wished to have painted. Upon inquiry for an artist to do our work, we were directed to the studio of Juanita Shep- perd, who had become 'Switzerland's Greatest Artist'. "I next visited Paris where there was to be a fashion show and midnight dance. Having plans to go to the show with Juanita Gardner, I decided I must learn to dance. After inquiry I was directed to the home of a special dancing instructor, who was none other than my old classmate, Matilda Moser. Miss Moser had acquired exceptional skill in 'tripping the light fantastic toe'. "A few days later I was called back to the United States on bus- iness, when on my way to board the ship I met Charles Riley who was coming to Holland as U. S. ambassador. I arrived in New York too late for the train to Chicago and was obliged to wait six hours for the next one. In the meantime I decided to go to the theater. One of the attractions was advertised as 'Ollie Hix and His Dog Trix'. To my surprise the great actor was none other than Robert Koch. ' "Late that evening I boarded the Chicago train and lost no time in getting settled in my berth for I was tired. I dropped off to sleep at once. Suddenly I became aware that something was wrong! It was broad daylight and the train was standing still. I dressed hurriedly and stepped out on the platform. Something had gone wrong with the engine and we were obliged to wait for repairs. We were on the outskirts of a very pretty little village in Indiana andonly a short dis- tance from a large farmhouse surrounded by massive maple trees. As I walked toward it a familiar voice was carried by the breeze, calling 'chicky, chicky, chick-e-el Here, chick, chick, chickl' I decided to investigate and was not very much surprised to find that the owner of the voice was our former Lucille Taylor who was now a farmer's wife. We had quite a pleasant visit and among other things Lucille said that Vernon Ripper was driving a taxi in Cleveland. Soon after reaching home, I picked up a newspaper and almost the first item which came before my notice was an account of a lawn party held at the home of Eunice Stuber. It had turned out to be an announcement party when little cards bearing the names of Eunice Stuber and Russell Becker revealed the happy secret. I was very much surprised Russell had said nothing about it when we were together in Switzerland. That same day I encountered another surprise. While downtown I met Esther Stuber, who informed me that she was soon to leave on a trip around the world. That night as I relived my experiences of the past few months it seemed that I could thereafter live in peace and contentment, since I had either seen or heard of my classmates who graduated from Tre- mont Community High School in 1927.

PageN THE ECHO, '27 Last Will and Testament of Senior Class of 1927 We, the Class of '27 of the Tremont Community High School, in Tazewell County and the State of Illinois, knowing that the end of our High School career is near, and that we will soon be scattered by the winds of ambition, do hereby ordain, declare, and publish this, our Last Will and Testament on the first day of March, in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred twenty-seven: To Mr. Johnson, we bequeath a class that will not rail about the choice of a play coach.

This document was on the first day of March, signed, sealed, pub- lished and declared by the Class of '27 in the presence of the assembly clock and piano, which shall remain to see our legacies and bequests administered. CSignedD JUANITA GARDNER, Attorney. Teachefs Examinations The first of March found two of the Senior girls, Myrtle Davis and Dorothy Hellemann, reviewing for teachers' examinations. They braved a task that is getting more and more difficult from year to year. The past few years have found Tremont High the most successful school in the county in passing these tests. The girls tried to uphold this record of our school. They succeeded and were awarded certificates to teach. Only two others out of forty were successful in the examinations. This again gives Tremont a record of one hundred per cent for the exam- inations. We hope the school may continue this splendid record. Page Twenty -In ml THE ECHO, '27 1--- ---1--.

S. broadcasting the history of the Class of '28, Two years ago last September we entered as green fresh- ies. Then we organized our class with Miss Kirkwood as class adviserg Raymond Hodgson as President, Junious May of Vice-President, and Lucille Harmon as Secretary and Treasurer. During the basketball season the president turned the duties of his office over to the Vice- President. We were initiated by the Sophomores in due time, later to win the good will of all upper classmen by entertaining them royally at a party. Valentine Day found us at a party to which each member had invited one guest. Our class was represented in athletics by Ray- mond Hodgson, Junious May, and Raymond Thomas, in literary activ- ties by Virginia May, Leonard Unsicker, Arnold Strunk, Junious May, Lillis Hinman and Alice Becker. The class operated a refreshment stand on the school ground at the Grade County Meet, entertained by Tremont that year. After a pleasant vacation we were all pleased to reenter school as Sophomores. Our class was minus two former members now. But our depleted ranks were refilled by Raymond Riggenbach and Leslie Maurer from Pekin High. Again we organized our class with Miss Kirkwood as class adviser. Leonard Unsicker was now chosen Pres- ident, Viola Storrer, Vice-President, and Virginia May, Secretary and Treasurer. We soon initiated the Freshmen in great style and they returned the favor by entertaining us at a Hallowe'en party. Our class was represented by Raymond Hodgson, Albert Stuber and Junious May in athletics during the season. Alice Becker, Virginia lVIay, Mary Cody, Lillis Hinman, Arnold Strunk, Leonard Unsicker and Junious May were the members of our class to gain prominence in literary activities. Our class also had the honor of furnishing the yell leaders-Lillis Hinman and Junious May. The year closed with a farewell party to our class adviser and a picnic at Pekin Park. When school opened again last September, we were minus two more members, Mary Cody and Leslie Maurer. Our class was soon organized with Mrs. Getz as class adviser, David Taylor as Vice-Pres- ident, and Viola Storrer as Secretary and Treasurer. Again our class shared a prominent part in all of the school activ- ities. Raymond Riggenbach, Raymond Hodgson, Albert Stuber, and Junious May represented us in athletics. In literary activities were found Leonard, Arnold, Alice, Virginia and Viola. In musical activities were heard Alice, Lillis, Harold, Albert, Arnold, Leonard and David. In the Domestic Science Club we claimed Mildred, Alberta, and Viola. During the season Raymond Hodgson won the great distinction of being the all-star center in four basketball tournaments. Our class again pro- vided the yell leaders, Lillis Hinman and Junious May. On April first we successfully staged our first play, "Come Out of the Kitchen." Our aim is to make Tremont proud of its Class of 1928, and we hope that our noble ambition may be fulfilled. After a few months of vacation, we hope to take our place as Seniors with this lofty purpose before us. Page Twenty-five I-I .... ......... ..... Q Mrs. Getz ....... ...........

Page Twenty-eight EI El 2 THE ECHO, '27 The Sophomore History We entered Tremont High in 1925, twenty-one in number. We were all ambitious and looked forward to this new life with great in- terest. For some reason that we did not understand, we were considered "pea-green freshies". With Miss Skinner as class adviser We were soon organized with the following officers: John Gerstner, President, Dor- othy Moser, Vice-Presidentg Emma Moser, Secretary, and Marie Fawer, Treasurer. A few weeks after entering, the Sophomores initiated us into the mysteries of high school life. Although it was a lively party, we all survived and a little later we returned the honor in the form of a Hal- lowe'en party. - ' Our class as a whole looked very promising. During the year we were represented in the various school activities by Donald Kinsey, Sam Herman, and Wilbur Coddington in baseball, Sam in basketball, and Harold Blue in the Literary Club. After a year of very hard work we felt rewarded. The following September we found that five of our members failed to return because of too urgent home duties. We were soon organized with Harold Becker as President, Carl Hoffman as Vice-President, and Helen Schmid as Secretary and Treasurer. In a few weeks we initiated the new pupils. Early in November, Russell Diers came from Manito to join our ranks. On the eve of Thanksgiving Day, the class was called upon to surrender its Vice-President to the grim reaper, Death. After this school never quite seemed the same. Yet, responding to the call of Duty, Russell Diers became active in basketball. John Gerst- ner suffered the misfortune of colliding with a barn floor and hobbled around on crutches until the sprained ankle was healed. We have sur- vived the remainder of the year and enter the future with profound hopes that T. C. H. S. may some day well be proud of its class of 1929.

This was a return party given to show our appreciation of the initiation party which the Sophomores had given for us. Because of the raging blizzard most of the country pupils were unable to be present, although most of those living in town were there. All of those present wore their clothes backward and part of the activities were carried out in this style. The evening was spent in playing games and having various contests. Light refreshments were served and everyone departed, declaring he had had a very pleasant time.

Baseball Champions E1 U THE ECHO, '27 Baseball The 1926 baseball season was a very successful one, winning eight games out of nine. Our first game was with Hopedale on their dia- mond. Neither team played very well, and, due mainly to lack of practice, Tremont lost this game by a score of 10 to 5. Under the splendid coaching of Mr. Wallace, the team soon began to show better form and in their second game, played with Delavan on the home diamond, won by the score of 11 to 4. The next team to play here was Minier. Tremont won 12-4. Our next game away from home was with Minier, and we again defeated them 13-8. Armington was our next foe. Tremont played fine baseball and won by a score of 9-6. The return game with Armington, played on our home diamond, was the sixth game. Again Armington lost 15-6. Our next game was with Mackinaw, a new entrant in the league, and they were considered very strong. This game was played in a drizzling rain. By winning this contest, Tremont could tie with lVIack- inaw for the league championship, and this they did. Hopedale next came to our diamond and was defeated by a score of 10-2. Our final game was played on the home iield with Mackinaw as the victim. This game was to decide the championship. Mackinaw took on the early lead of 3-1, but Tremont overcame the lead and won 4-3. This was the best game of the season. Tremont had again won the championship of the Corn Belt League, for the third time of the four years' existence of the league. Our schedule was as follows: September 10-Tremont 5, Hopedale 10-There September 17-Tremont 113 Delavan 4-Here September 21-Tremont 12, Minier fl-Here October 8-Tremont 13, Minier 8-There October 13-Tremont 9g Armington 6-There October 15-Tremont 155 Armington 6-Here October 19-Tremont 53 Mackinaw 3-There October 22--Tremont 103 Hopedale 2-Here October 26-Tremont 43 Mackinaw 3-Here Total-Tremont ........

Page Thirty' E lun U THE ECHO, '271 -'---'---- 4 We 1 1 1 X Y r Page Forty - -"------- THE ECHO, '27 -------- ri l Basketball . The sixth year of basketball at Tremont Community High School is now history. During these years our school has become one of the leading schools of the state in this branch of athletics. During the past year Coach Wallace used Robert Koch and Free- man Diers as forwards on the first team, supported by Yeatman Adcox and Russell Diers. Raymond Hodgson was used at center. Glenn Becker, Raymond Riggenbach and Clyde Coddington served as guards with Albert Stuber supporting them. Russell Becker and Vernon Rip- per, also on the team, played often under Captain Adcox on the second team. Under the good leadership of Captains Glenn Becker and Ray- mond Hodgson, the team won 29 games and lost 8. Our second team under Captain Adcox won 6 games with 2 on the defeated list. The team won second place shortly before Christmas in the Arm- ington invitational tournament. Here Armington was the first foe to lose through a strong comeback of the boys to overcome Armington's 17-6 advantage. The game became ours with a 23-21 score. This game was featured by the splendid shots of Yeatman Adcox and the all-around playing of the team. We won from McLean High School in the next game C28-215 and entered the finals against Mackinaw. The championship game was close throughout but closed with Mack- inaw ahead in a 17-16 score. Our next tournament was for county honors at East Peoria. For the first time in the history of our school the championship was claimed by T. C. H. S. VVe played Morton first and readily disposed of them with a score of 33-16. The next defeat was administered to Mack- inaw with a 25-21 score. In the semi-finals, we were successful in win- ning from Hopedale in a hardfought game with a 26-20 lead. The championship laurels became ours when Deer Creek was defeated in the finals with a 22-17 score. The championship play was featured by the splendid team work of our boys, the missing of baskets, and the wonderful spirit of the team. The district tournament at Pekin came next and at a time when Clyde's sprained ankle improved too slowly to find the boys prepared for the contests. For our first game we again drew our friends from Mackinaw to win with a score of 34-18. Our second game was with the team representing Pekin High School. This game was also a vic- tory for us with a 21-16 finish in an exciting heartbreaker to the Pekin followers. Pekin had just previously claimed joint championship in the Big 12 conference. This sweet victory brought us in the finals against Qthe six-footers or no playl Manito. We led all throughout the game until the last minute when Manito urged ahead and won with a 26-24 score. This was a great discouragement to us after being in the lead throughout the game. Yet second honors were reaped for our school in this strongly contested tournament. Wesleyan honored us with an invitation to compete in their tourna- ment with 16 of the strongest teams of the state. We defeated Bloom- Page Forty-on EJ g THE ECHO, '27 ington's choice of its 1200 students in our first contest to the score of 37-12. Our next game was with Antioch, who had defeated U High the previous evening and was chosen by many to win the tournament. Antioch had previously won by nine points in a season's game from Morton High of Cicero, the champions of the United States. We tri- pled the score C23-71 on Antioch in a splendid exhibition of team play by the T. C. H. S. lads. This victory brought us to the semi-finals where we opposed Melvin. Success again favored our boys with a score of 25-14 in a well played game. But failing to score properly in many attempts gave championship honors to Canton in the final game with a score 13-10 in their favor. But indeed our school may well be proud of second honors in a keenly-contested tournament of this type. Many individual honors were harvested by our players during the season. Raymond Hodgson won first honors on the first all-star team in every tournament he entered-Armington, East Peoria, Pekin and Wesleyan-and is proud of a very beautiful individual cup for being the best center at Wesleyan. Glenn Becker claimed honors twice on the second all-star team-at Armington and at East Peoria. Robert Koch placed as second all-star forward at the county contests. Ray- mond Riggenbach was finally rewarded for his faithful services at Wesleyan when chosen as guard on the first all-star team. The other boys also served faithfully but without placing on the selected teams. The Record Opponents Tremont Nov. 30 Danvers .......................................

J. Wallace and the boys that ever fought faithfully as good sportsmen to win this credit for our school. From every tournament and especially from Wesleyan, we have Warm praises for the splendid behavior and manly conduct of our lads. Tremont is credited with clean sportsmanship and excellent athletic spirit. The heartiest of commendatory remarks were ever heard for the loyal support offered by our patrons in accompanying the boys to their games. The high school extends its hearty thanks to the boys, to Mr. Wallace, and to the many fans that contributed to make the many victories possible to our credit. Page Forty-three U 5 THE ECHO, '27 Field and Track Judging from the large number of boys out for track this year, Tremont should have a fairly good team. Then boys are daily prac- ticing faithfully. It is too early to predict who is to represent our school in each of the various events, but We are resting assured that with Mr. Wallace's guidance, each man will be placed Where he can do his best, and as a result hope for a winning team. Tremont has already been invited to three track meets: Bradley, Wesleyan and Millikin. Everyone hopes for success in these meets as Well as in the county meet at Armington. We, as Seniors, especially hope that we may be victorious, being that it is our last opportunity to represent our high school upon the field of action before we grad- uate. We should be pleased to leave a splendid record as an encour- agement to our underclassmen Who are to represent our school next year When Tremont will be called upon to entertain the county meet. Tremont has won both the basketball and baseball championships of the county this year. We hope We may do fully as well in track. If We do, We shall have made a "clean sweep", so to speak, of county laurels, for this season of 1926-1927. QApril 1, 1927.1 Page Forty-four THE ECHO, '27 Exif: 33 any 'fx J,-XJ 1 Qc! E J .. ?

Ac- tion was taken at once. The officers chosen Were Lucille Taylor, Pres- identg Russell Becker, Vice-President, and Juanita Gardner, Secretary- Treasurer. At a later date, the name "Lowell Mason Club" was adopted to honor the American composer that did so much towards establishing music in the public schools. The ten members in the class invited other members, the requirements to qualify for membership call for ability to sing or play some musical instrument. The first meeting, an invitation party, was held in the gymnasium on Monday night, January tenth. Plans for a very severe initiation were prepared but the hearts of the original ten failed them when the time arrived. Blindfolded they were led through all the ditches and al- leys for three miles. The girls were supposed to Wear aprons and the boys overalls but some of the Freshmen girls possessed too much dignity for this part of the program. CRather unusual for a Freshie.J Those that did not Wear old clothes wished they had before the evening was over. The program began With a performance by each new member. This was greatly enjoyed, especially Verla's solo dance, and Leonard's learning to sing, "Bye, Bye, Black Bird". The members of the harmony class also gave several numbers. The second meeting was held seven Weeks later. The initiated members participated at this meeting. Games were played and refresh- ments Were served. Another meeting is planned before the year closes. Page Fifty THE Ecuo, '27 Cookmg Class Hlstory On September 7, our cooking class organized a club, electing Esther Stuber, Presidentg Viola Storrer, Vice-President, and Lucille Taylor, Secretary and Treasurer. This being the first cooking class in the school, the three weeks' delay of our cooking material required us to do our first cooking at the home of our teacher, Mrs. Getz. Rain on the first laboratory day made it difficult to make good jelly, but We, being such excellent cooks, made our grape jelly 100 per cent. October 8 found us securely established in our new cooking room and giving a tea party, each member inviting a guest. fWho invited Clyde? ??J After the Deer Creek-Tremont basketball game, the club served a light lunch to the members of both teams. This was greatly enjoyed by all of the players. During the year the members of the club sold .popcorn and candy at a number of the basketball games. At another time a cake walk was staged. We appreciated the success of our team so greatly that We honored them at a party on February 21. At the banquet given by the patrons in honor of the basketball boys, we were given the honor of serving as waitresses. We hope that the cooking classes of the future may enjoy as successful a year as we have had. P Class Roll Lettuce Alone ................................

The tumult and the shouting diesg The captains and the kings depart: Still stands Thine ancient sacrifice, An humble and a contrite heart. Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet, Lest we forget-lest we forget! Far-called, our natives melt away, On dune and headland sinks the fire: Lo, all our pomp of yesterday Is one with Nineveh and Tyre! Judge of the Nations, spare us yet, Lest we forget-lest we forget! If drunk with sight of power, we loose Wild tongues that have not Thee in awe Such boasting as the Gentiles use, Or lesser breeds without the law- Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet, Lest we forget-lest we forget! For heathen heart that puts her trust In reeking tube and iron shard, All valiant dust that builds on dust, And guarding, calls not Thee to guard, For frantic boast and foolish word, Thy mercy on Thy people, Lord! -Rudyard Kipling.
