J jf I9 Z 31 The tllilzannr Whitehouse Qliup After the passing of our dear friend and comrade, Eleanor White- house, the remaining inenzlwers of her family wished to leave a token in lfnizretrsity High School int memory of her. The memorial decided upon was a large silver lowing cup to be known as the Eleanor Whitehouse cup. It is to be awarded annually to the senior commercial student 'who ranks highest in scholarship in commerce, character, sportmanship, contest 'work in commerce, leadership, and participation in school activities. In case' two students should tie in the listed qualities, general scholarship sha-ll decide the award. The name of the recipient is to be engraved ont the cup each time an award is made. Certainly no inore 'worthy memorial could be established for one who was so deeply interested int commercial 'work that she had already decided upon it as her 'vocations The winner of the award this year is Maurine Darling.

Foreign Language Curriculum Transfer from Ben Funk High School Twenty-three 1 I9 3 2 31 1 Ulrahels uf a btuhent CWith apologies to the songsters of the Middle Agesj Clifford Scott, a student of 'University High School, set forth on a tour. Clifford Scott is a studious guy, And is highly regarded in the faculty's eye. On the first night out he stopped at an inn known locally as the Station Store. Here he niet some of his fellow-students. The milkshakes flowed freely, and before long our friends began to sing. Here follows the song: 1. George Brown-Ah, the handsome brute! Girls the world o'er think he's cute. Boop-boop-a-doop. 2. Lilith Southgate you can see Always singing "I love mef, Boop-boop-a-doop. 3. Bob Elliott is a lad, of ways so rough, VVhose whiskers are exceedingly tough. Boop-boop-a-doop. 4. Maurine Church, of serious 1nien, Is less often heard than seen. Boop-boop-a-doop. 5. Forrest Noggle, a student in math, Gives all his teachers a darn good laugh. Boop-boop-a-doop. Twenty-four 1 I9 32 si 1 6. Jeanne Parret, a frivolous lass, Studies her lessons right in class. Boop-boop-a-doop. 7. Arthur Spafford, though free with his cash, Never does anything exceedingly rash. Boop-boop-a-doop. 8. Mable Childers, so pleasingly plump, Thinks she's sugar in a lump. Boop-boop-a-doop. 9. Bill McKnight. who knows every shade of rose. Blushes most charmingly from his ears to his nose. Boop-boop-a-doop. Then they retired to rest their weary bones. Dawn! Once more Clifford and his merry friends started on their journey. ln the evening they chanced upon a .cozy inn snuggled deep amidst collegiate environment. lt was called the "Alamo".

From there Clifford and his friends made their way to the rooms of a renowned astrologer, Miss Gertrude Stephens, where they learned some in- teresting things about the future. Clifford Scott will be the President of Podunk University, and the most prominent man in the college world. His rare knowledge will make possible perpetual motion. Edna Mae Baird is to become famous at thirty-six. She will be mar- ried six times and divorced six times, which is a new record in America. Ah! Yes, Edna Mae will be the world's greatest vamp. Behold in John White the future Knute Rockne. He will become the world's greatest football coach. In 1950 he will invent a system that will revolutionize football. Julia Blum is to be a scientist of great renown. Ten years from this date she will be in Africa searching for that rare something, the whiffenpoof. She will conduct this search for Mr. T. M. Barger, Sr., the physics teacher at University High School. A Here is Clarence Burner, pictured as a Latin teacher at Yuton, Illinois. His latest work will be a treatise on "The Principles of Teaching Latin in Rural Schools". He will collect this knowledge by extensive research and travels. The future years will find Mary Ellen Reece in London, running an establishment known as 'tThe Elite Beauty Shoppe". She will be known the world over for her hairpins, which stay where placed. Britt Blair will prosper as Normal's greatest merchant. He will own a lollypop factory and put out several million lollypops each month. He will get rich quick by fleecing the students out of their hard-earned cash. Williaiii McKnight, Junior, we glimpse as the head of the McKnight Universal Publishing Company. His company will do the printing for all the governments of the world. He will die rich and exceedingly happy. In his will he will leave four million to the unemployed. Twenty-eight 1 I9 3 2 31 L Ada Jane Carter is to head an Anti-Candyist Club. She will initiate into her club any girl whom she sees eating candy. The club is to stop girls from becoming fat. The crystal states that the club will be a fattening suc- cess. Eugene Cawood will figure as the handsomest actor in Hollywood. He will be married four times and divorced four times. Then he will marry a girl from Funks Grove and live happily ever after. Bernadine Flanagan is introduced as a history critic in University High School. She will be strongly against debating, although serving as the sponsor of Thalian. She will write a book on the history of nineteen-thirty. Ralph Rader will go to the University of Carlock, where he will be a great football star, and the captain of the team in his senior year. After he graduates he will become a professional player. Esther Ropp will weave rugs for a living and meanwhile a man will weave into the woof of her life. She will marry him and be happy the rest of her days. Donald Walker is to be a dentist, located at Yuton, Illinois. He will be noted for his expert dentistry on animals of all kinds. He will become rich, but die unhappy. All of his estate will go to the Yuton Animal Poor Farm. Elisabeth Stubblefield will be engaged in a rattling good business, that of an undertaker. She will become Normal's greatest and richest woman, but the man who marries her will steal her money, and then leave her with a broken pocketbook and heart. Paul Carver will be a mechanic, earning good pay. His specialty is automobiles, but he can operate and repair any kind of machinery. He will be employed at Sears, Roebuck, and Company, in charge of the Toy Depart- ment. Pauline Carter will be a school teacher at Kerrick, Illinois. For pupils she will have two boys, two girls, and seven chickens. She will retire, after earning sufficient lucre, and live on a lonely ranch in the Black Hills. Marjorie Simmons will become Chicago's most beautiful society wo- man. She will make her debut on March 1, 1042. Happiness will be hers until she meets the man of her dreams, then unhappiness until they are mar- ried. After that, all will be well. Twenty-nine 1 I9 3 2 31 L Arthur Spafford is indexed as the world's light-weight boxing cham- pion. He will have a terrific right hook, which will flatten many opponents. He will be considered as the best exponent of his art. Virginia Nichols we see as a famous author. She will write a book entitled "Why I Left Home", and for this she will be awarded the Nobel prize. It is prophesied that Hildred Peters will be the head of pickle business. After a few years of success, she will find herself in a pickle on account of the business depression. She will finally go "cuckoo" looking for a sweet pickle that isn't sweet. Lilith Southgate will be the proprietor of the Southgate Manufactur- ing Plant-the only woman owning a plant of any kind. She will be popular among the men of her town. Barbara Turner will be noted for her journalistic efforts and radio broadcasts. She will be a favorite in television fields because of her "crown- ing glory" fred being easier to transmit in colors than brown, black, or yellowj. In broadcasts she will be easily identified by her rapid speech. After their look into the magic mirror of the astrologist, Clifford and his companions departed on their various paths, thinking fondly of the days in the past and looking forward expectantly to the days of the future.

Behating Dorothy Baltz, Ellis Blair, and Robert Erdman are the students who are ably representing the juniors in the State Debate class. From this class the school debaters will be chosen. The question is Resolved, that chain stores are a menace. Qtbletizs The class was very proud to have five members receive football letters last fall. The lettermen are Kenneth Fuller, Captain-elect for 1931-2, Nick Bosnjak, Laurell McConkey, Billy Quinn, and Richard NVeber. Other boys faithfully came out to practice and played in several games. They also deserve mention. Among them are Ralph Burns and Robert Darley. We regret that the basketball letters have not yet been presented, but juniors out are Nick Bosnjak, VVilbur Barton, Ellis Blair, Melvin jacquat, Truman Sage, Rex Darling, and Richard Weber. Jimmie Holley is man- aging the team. We hope that a number of boys will go out for track and baseball and so maintain the class record. 1513? The junior play, "GREEN STOCKINGS," was a great success. The class was especially proud to have for the first time in a number of years a cast made up entirely of juniors. Not only did the cast co-operate well, but also the class, both in planning for the play and in the presentation. Smarties The junior Class is well represented in the various societies. There are seven junior members in Thalian, ten in Rostrum, six in Odeon, two in Unadilla, eleven in G. A. A.

The big bonfire that attracted so much attention on the south campus on a Friday night in October, 1930, was a part of theifreshman weiner roast. The fun we had playing games and running around the track was only equaled by the pleasure of listening in the flickering firelight to the beautiful music from -Ioe's violin. The Freshman Class of Vikings were required by their masters, the seniors, to give an original program. Accordingly, one October morning in assembly, a program was announced by Alice Beyer. The first feature was a tap dance by Elaine Ingram. Joseph Castle then gave two numbers on his violin, Eleanor Coen played "A Kentucky Barbecue" on her guitar, and Vere Wolf CVere the Valiantj gave a piano number. Margaret Sage, imitating Barbara Turner on the piano, closed the program. The U Hi Hop, held at the Old Castle on November 3, 1930, was a tremendous success. The music was furnished by "Bev" Schuler's Modern- istic Orchestra. Mrs. Martin, Mrs. Beyer, Mrs. Turner, Mrs. Harper, Mrs. Sage, and all the class sponsors served as patronesses. Everybody was pres- ent and a great time was had by all. The bleak winds of January did not keep the Freshman Class from having a party one Friday night in the Old Castle. They danced, played cards, and had a mid-winter frolic under the rosy glow of many colored spotlights.

The negative team was composed of Ellis Blair, Clarence Burner, and Barbara Turner. ln the first debate our affirmative team journeyed to East Peoria, where they lost a close decision to the team representing that school. The next debate, which was held in our study hall, was won by our negative team. Jacksonville High School debate team came to Normal to receive the decision from our affirmative representatives. In the'last debate of the year our negative dropped the decision to Pekin High. Dorothy Baltz and Ellis Blair will be the sole survivors for a success- ful season next year. Mr. Atwood Reynolds of Illinois State Normal University was coach of the team this year. A great deal of credit must be given Mr. Reynolds for his services during the season.

VVilliam Faraday, the father of an aristocratic English family, would not allow Phyllis, the youngest of his four daughters, to marry until Celia, the eldest daughter, was married. Celia's other sisters, Lady Evelyn and Madge, had both been married. Lady lfvelyn was a widow and Madge's husband lived in India. Due to an old English custom, Celia had been forced to wear green stockings at the wedding of each of her sisters. Phyllis was rather disappointed because Celia was just the eldest sister and not very desirable. Celia was disgusted. She was teased constantly because she was almost thirty now, and rather hopeless. But she decided that she, too, would have a love affair. ller fiance would be in the army-of course just a make-believe-but no one would ever know the difference. She spent many hours writing letters to him, care- fully destroying them later. No longer did she do all the work: no longer was she just the eldest daughter, for she was engaged to Colonel Smith, D. S. O. But one day Phyllis found one of the letters and mailed it. Then Colonel Smith, who was not just a make-believe, suddenly interested in finding whom he was engaged to, went to the Faraday home under the name of Vavosere. Although it was just a make-believe affair, it soon became a reality, and Celia didn't have to wear the "green stockings" at Phyllis's wedding after all.

The action centers about the Rodgers and the Donovan families, who are pretending that they are wealthy. Henry Rodgers, a jealous, henpecked husband and real estate sales- man, sells some poor real estate to the Donovans. Meanwhile, jimmy Rodgers falls in love with Dorothy Donovan. jimmy wants to marry Dorothy, but their parents object: so they decide to elope and be secretly married. Trouble comes between Henry Rodgers and Walter Donovan when each finds that the other is not wealthy and that the real estate sold to Donovan is of no value. A fight ensues, and the Donovans decide to leave. They catch the young couple trying to elope, and berate them severely. The play ends as Dane Lawson, a rich and former sweetheart of Henry's wife, who had come to visit her, enters into the real estate business with Henry and Walter, thus giving them the financial backing necessary to bring them wealth. 1 Mabel Rodgers--- Savannah -----.

'Slug' Saunders was in a dilemna. He had just come to the conclusion that there is always an end to a gangster's career. And in all the years that he had been in the 'racket' he had always noticed that the end wasn't just a natural death. Now, just when he was wishing that he could break away from the gang and 'go straight', the 'Chief' had given him orders to put Tony Savan- oni, alias 'Weasel', 'on the sp0t'. He didn't know what to do. If he failed to obey orders he knew what would happen. They'd 'get him' somehow, no matter where he went. And he had a feeling that he would be caught if he did shoot Tony. His name was becoming entirely too well known among the police. They had almost got him in that last raid. Now they had somehow procured a photograph of him, and pictures of himself stared him in the face from telephone poles and buildings as he walked down the street. Under each glaring likeness was printed the amount of the reward-a neat fortune-to any one capturing him dead or alive. Consequently he had to disguise him- self before he dared venture out. XVhile 'Slug' had been thinking about all this, he had been walking rapidly down the street. Not that he was in a hurry, but walking fast seemed to help him think better. As he was hurrying past a vacant building, he glanced up and saw two men coming out upon the street a short distance ahead. He recognized them instantly. They were 'Weasel' and 'Shiverin' Smith', both members of the McGann gang. The men were facing the opposite side of the streetg so they didn't see 'Slug'. who had an excellent chance to put a bullet in 'VVeasel's' side. But 'Slug' didn't care to meet them yet because he hadn't decided what to do. He dodged into the vacant building, ran to a window, and since it had a frosted glass pane in it, raised it about an inch. This was enough to see through-and-shoot through, too-if necessary. The men had reached the sidewalk by this time and were about to turn, But a sharp crack rent the air. 'Shiverin' Smith' fell in a heap, and 'NVeasel' ran down the street amidst a hail of bullets. 'Slug' knew immediately what had happened. It was the Spumoni gang and 'Slug' hoped they would do his work for him. But no, 'Weasel' got safely down the street and finally took refuge in the alley that separated the vacant building which 'Slug' occupied from the one next to it. He was safe from the gang but only a few feet from 'Slug'. 'Slug' saw his chance. He would obey the 'Chief's' orders. Quickly screwing the silencer on his gun, he cautiously shoved it through the crack and pressed the trigger. 'Weasel' crumpled and fell flat on his face, and no one had heard 'Slug' shoot. "Now to get out," thought 'Slug'. He couldn't go out the way he had entered because the Spumoni gang were out there raining bullets at the alley, Sixty-one I I9 3 2 31 1 and then there would probably be a curious crowd gathering. He would have to find another way out. just then the shooting stopped and he heard whistles and the sound of hurrying feet. "The 'Picks' ", muttered 'Slug'. The police were gather- mg from all directions, and 'Slug' knew he couldn't get out now. Since the 'Weasel' had fallen on his face and the bullet had entered his side, it was easy to see that the shot must have come from the vacant building. Then the police spied the window that 'Slug' had raised a little. He was soon on his way 'up the river'. Too late he had wished that he might 'go straighti. S. S., '32 Ulihz Bain For such a deed the night was perfect. The drizzle turned into a mist which enveloped the city. I was so certain that London would be entirely destroyed that I was paralyzed with the thought of it. I had always trusted Liebstiech, but now I thought him a madman. Yes, mad! . . . The rain was falling when I uncovered in my own mind that he and his fowl companion were plotting .... And again the rain fell as I contemplated their base actions. It was on one of my afternoon strolls that I had met Liebstiech. I was walking down Bradstreet Wav. and as I crossed Piccadilly Road I was well nigh run down by a rapidlv moving hansom. The occupant immediately expostulated with the driver and covered me with profuse apologies. "My dear fellow," he exclaimed, "you will pardon such reckless driv- ing by my cabby here, I hope." I noticed a German accent, but still he seemed a likeable fellow. "Can't I take you down town P" he continued. I accepted with pleasure, as I had had enough of walking that day. I learned that he was high in rank in the English forces in France. He had come into England about ten years ago, enlisted in the army, and now was a major of an artillery group at Mortencieux. He had a leave of absence and was home on secret business. We dined at the club that night, and we saw each other frequently after that. One rainy night as I was returning a book to the library, through the 1nist I perceived two shadowy figures crouching under a street lamp which gave a sallow, blurred light. A sharp pang struck me as I recognized one of them. "Get this, now, Reuben," he muttered, "The Government isn't pay- ing us for nothingf, Liebstiech's voice was very harsh and guttural. I-Ie went on, "It'll pay you well to keep stillf' Sixty-two ue 3 2 31 "Yes. Now get this. Tomorrow night at 11:30 meet me here. It only takes two for the job. The gas will be ready. Steinbaum said it would. The valves are in good shape, and when we let go the town won't know the difference. Tomorrow night, 11:30." Liebstiech went down the alleyway and Reuben hailed a hansom. I couldn't move. Upon first sight of them I had stepped into an area, and there I heard all without realizing the significance of their words. But now the horrible truth struck me. I dashed home through the rain, my brain in a whirl. Not until I was in my armchair did I dare think, and hardly then. The German Government paying Liebsteich and his colleague to destroy London! VVhat a base plan! Tomorrow night, 11:30. That's what he said. Only that night I had read of the deadly gases being perfected. And the fumes would spread so that all London would be dead in three minutes. But how would the two madmen get out? Were they sacrificing themselves for Germany? Liebstiech, yes, German. Could it be I was the only one who knew of this mad trick? The whole responsibility on my hands! Should I tell the police? No, there was no proof. I must wait and do my part alone. Again it was raining. The night was perfect for their beastly crime. Eleven o'clock. I waited. Eleven-twenty. Still no sign. Eleven-thirty, the dot. I was in the same area as before. A hansom drove up-Reuben. There was a light halt' way down, and there he went in. My gun was ready, and I determined to make them stop or kill them both. As I cautiously looked in, I saw Liebstiech at a large wheel. The valve! "We can get out in two minutes," he said. What? They intended to get out in two minutes, out of London. "Let 'er go," cried Reuben. "Stop!" I yelled. "For the love of God, stop!" I was in a fit. "Are you crazy P" screamed Liebstiech. "Madmen!" I shrieked. Several men were holding me, but I fired two useless shots into the air. "Let me explain," said Liebstiech in a quiet tone. "I think I under- stand you, N ewberryg but if you swear not to repeat, I'll tell you." "The English Government is dispatching me and my friend Reuben to Paris by balloon 5 and since we are closely watched, we wished to embark secretly. There is no time to lose, adieuf' Humbly I wished them a good voyage. Then I went out into the dreary rain. R. W., '32 Q jaigljt Bait! CA true experience of my great grandparentsj "I'm going down to the big meeting now. Don't sit up and wait for me." Sixty-three I I9 3 2 31 1 "Don't go, John. You know what all the folks have said. Let's go up to Illinois and stay with Mother until this is over with." "Noi I' tell you I'm not going to leave this town. I can defend my views if I like. Anyway, they won't try anything right here in town." "But we're not 'right here in town'! We are half a mile from the nearest neighbor." "That meeting starts at eight olclock, and it's seven now. I'm going. I'll take Old Bess and the buggy. Don't wait up for me." "All right. Go if you must. but you know how strong the feeling is now. Those pro-slavery men will do almost anything!" P '6They won't try anything on me, I tell you. 'Goodbyef' "Goodbye, John." The door slammed shut, and soon Mrs. Johnson heard the buggy bounce out through the gateway and go down the road. This was just before the Civil War, when there was much contro- versy over the slavery question. In St. Louis, where slavery sympathizers were in the majority, the anti-slavery men of the town usually kept their views secret. Mr. Johnson, or John as we know him, was a very outspoken man. He had, at several meetings, openly voiced his denunciation of slavery. Every one knew which side of the question he stood for, and the slavery supporters had a decided dislike for him. There had been several quarrels, and the pro-slavery men had abducted a few of the most violent speakers from the anti-slavery movement. Mr, Johnson had been repeatedly warned by his friends to leave the city before the anger of the pro-slavery men was turned against him, but he had ignored their warnings and resolutely remained in town. When Mrs. johnson could no longer hear the buggy, she got the family Bible and sat down before the fire. She read a short while and then went to sleep. She awoke with a start. "Eight-nine-ten. Ten o'clock. I think I'll go to bed. john may not be home until after midnight." Getting up from her chair, she replaced the Bible and went into the dining room. She carefully spread the cloth and laid out the silver for two persons. While doing this she thought she heard a noise in the barn. She listened carefully, but it was not repeated. She took up the lamp and went into the kitchen. Again she heard the noise. It sounded as if several persons were walking toward the house from the barn. "They've come for johnif' She blew out the lamp and quietly went to the rear door and bolted it. Sixty-jour I I The footsteps came up to the back porch, stopped, and then began a circuit of the house. She went to the front door and bolted it. The foot- steps had gone completely around the house now. They stopped for several minutes. She again sat down in her chair before the fire, tight-lipped and tense. "I do wish John had heeded the warnings. We could be in Illinois now, out of danger. I wish I could warn him." The footsteps had been pacing slowly around the house for hours, it seemed to her. Now there came a clumping on the steps. "They're coming in!" The clumping continued up the steps to the door. Then came several bumps which' did not sound at all like ordinary knocks. "If I don't open the door thev will break in. Anyway, they want John, not me, and possibly I may get them to go away before he returns." "VVho's there ?" her voice trembled. No answer. She slid back the bolts. "NVho's there ?" her voice firmer now. Still no answer. She opened the door a crack and peered into the darkness. No one was there. She pushed the door wide open. "M-o-o-o-o-o-h l" There stood the family cow, which had broken loose and come up to the house for a drink. G. B., '31 3Bzbinh a Mask At a party, every one is jolly and gay. Of course I appear happy too. I laugh with the crowd. I dance madly as if nothing else mattered. After the dance a little punch is refreshing. While drinking I talk in jokes, keeping those around me filled with constant laughter. At a school game I cheer and shout above the roar of voices. I laugh, sing, and talk until my friends remark how sweet my life must be. Again I am with the spirit of the crowd. But at home I am different. There I have time to think. Sometimes I think of games, of dances, of walks and rides. Then a smile flickers across my face as I think of how well I am playing the part. Down in my heart I am melancholy. Then my face relaxes, there is no trace of joy. It seems that my spirit sinks. Alone, I dream of some one dear to me, some one Sixty-fwe 9 32 31 1 I9 3 Za 31 1 far away. No matter how I try, tears find their way to my eyes and stream down my face. I cannot hide the truth from myself. Br-r-rr-r-the door-bell. W'ith a sigh I rise, wipe the tears away, and powder away all traces of feeling. I stop before the mirror and smile at myself. Then, with a toss of my head and a forced, broad smile, I hur- riedly get my coat and join the happy youths waiting at my door. Again I play my part, behind a mask. J. B., '32. 2111 in the Game Crash l-- -Bang! "Say, how can a guy keep from being caught, with you making so much noise ?" whispered an angry voice that seemed to come from a dark corner. "Aw, pipe down, yourself. How can I help it when you grab-the best and I have to take what's left, and find it in the dark at that P" "VVell! If I had been at this game as long as you have, it wouldn't take me long to find what I was after." Soon another clatter was heard. "Was that you ?" "Noi I supposed it was you trying to give us away again." "VVell, some one else is in this room besides you and me. It's about time we were beatin' it out of here." A small figure was seen stealing into the room, turning back to see if any one was looking. Soon the figure gave a long, low whistle. At this another figure dashed in, closed the door, and began to feel his way around. After the new comers had satisfied themselves that there was noth- ing there, they departed quickly. "Golly! it sure is getting hot around here. Why, I'm even afraid to take a good deep breath, but if nothing happens for a while we can run and get out without being caught." "Yeh, but I'm afraid we'll never get out. Oh, why did we think of such a thing in the first place? We might have known we could never get by with it." Suddenly a loud cry was heard from a distance. Both boys crouched quiet, waiting. Again the cry, this time the voice calling, "Ollie, ollie, oxen free." And by this they knew that they had not been found, and were to run to base and get in free, So they slid down from their perch on top of a tottering cupboard, and dashed to base, elated over their success in con- cealing their hiding place.

But the jazz did not expire, and Frank fell asleep. "Hey, Frank! Come right on un to bed,', called out Mr, Holbe half an hour later. "All right, l'll be there as soon as I get a drink," answered Frank, waking from his slumber. ln a few minutes all were sleeping quietly. Nothing woke Mr. Holbe out of his peaceful snoring until midnight, when Mrs. Holbe softly whispered in his ear, "jim, jim, wake up! I hear burglars down stairsf' Mr. Holbe get out of bed, drew his 38 colt from under his pillow, and tip-toed downstairs. Sure enough, the talking came from the dining room, where the silver was kent. Mr. Holbe stooped. He listened for a while. Distinctly he heard a clinking of silver. He could hardly make out what the robbers were saving, but the words that he caught proved that they were stealing the silverware. He flashed a light into the room. "Stick 'em up lu he commanded. just then a voice came, "Station VVLS broadcasting a fake robberyf' VV. B., '32 Sixty-eight I9 3 2 31 L jfuunh ants lust The next thing I knew, after I had fallen into the dust with a bullet through my left shoulder, I was lying in a white bed in a place that I learned later was an old French mansion used as a hospital. I was quite out of my head, it seemed, because everything was dim and mixed up. My shoulder pained me terribly, my head ached, and I was very warm and cold in turns. After a while I became more conscious of the things around me, and I noticed a bed next to mine had a man lying in it. .lle was pale and thin, and looked very ill. It made me feel bad to look at his thin, drawn face. I tried to reach over and touch him to let him know that I felt sorry for him, but I was unable to move either arm, as I was strapped to the bed. Then I thought perhaps if I smiled and looked better, maybe it would cheer him up a bit. I forced a smile, and noticed that he, too, smiled in turn and looked much better. I tried to speak, but I was so utterly weak that I could not make a sound. Finally a nurse came in, and smilingly she removed the straps which held me down, This relieved me greatly, and after the nurse had left I turned toward my newly found friend and saw him smiling back at mc. I decided that I would feel much better if I could shake his hand, as he looked eager to become acquainted. VVith much labor I extended my hand slowly toward him, and I noticed that he understood my plan and was also extend- ing his hand to grasp mine. As I thrust my hand across the remaining space between our beds, I suddenly struck a hard substance, cold and invis- ible. I felt all around and then realized the truth. It was a mirror. J. Matlab nf the btreatur Game As the clock struck three, we left, you see, That place called U-H-S. And clambered aboard an ancient Dodge, And never once did rest. IVe rolled and rocked and bumped and jumped, Till it seemed she would hardly run,- But ere we came to Strcator town, W'e found trouble had just begun. A tire went Hat and there we sat, For pliers we had none: But to a Shell gasoline station Our footsteps soon were won. The proprietor, a portly man, Greeted us at the door. He must have weighed two hundred pounds, And then some fifty more. Sixty-nine I9 32 31 But soon, however, the tire we fixed And started on our way. We stopped to get a bite to eat, But none could get, I say. And when we got out to the gym Most of the team had dressed, But we our weary bones laid down To gain a little rest. Then out to the held the old Dodge sped As fast as she could go. Right soon we saw a giant sign VVhich said, "Oh, please, go slowln By the side of the road we did park the bus, And entered the field on foot, Our hands and faces were black as coal, Or at least as black as soot. Eleven bonny Green and Gold Warriors dashed out upon the field, But there was also a great red team, VVho said they'd never yield. The whistle blew, the game was on- The slaughter had begun, And though U-Hi did always fight, Old Streator had it won. Right valiantly our boys did fight- VVee Willie, John, and Herb, Bill Quinn, and Captain Rader, too, Were more often seen than heard. But Pope, ah, such a sad, sad thing- There was no stopping him, And though right fearlessly we fought, He had more vigor and vim. Twice in the first half they did score During the battle that night. We too would have scored but for a bad break On a pass to johnny White. The pass was thrown by our quarter-back- Herb. Adams was his name. Pontiac, El Paso, and Streator ' Do still ring with his fame. But then we lost the ball-ah, me, A touchdown was in sight. But now that they did have the ball Things didn't look so bright. Seventy I9 3 2 31 1 The second half it was a rout- Via the air they scored, Until Ken Fuller looked as though He had been hit by a board. Quickly they scored three times that half, And then U-Hi awoke just as some slaving monster man VVh0 has thrown off his yoke. "Nine-ninety-nine,,' the signals were called. 'Twas a pass from Adams to lVhite, And Johnny grabbed it from the air And ran with all his might. "Touchdown! Touchdown !', U-Hi had scored' Our fans fall threej went mad, And when we made the extra point The Streator fans grew sad. The gun went off when we were close To scoring points once more- So back we went unto the gym All feeling pretty sore. Howe'er, our spirits soon did rise As all the boys got dressed, Because our coach with lots of "dough', By Streator had been blessed. To the Green Tree Inn we then progressed And, boy, how we did eat! Some fish for john and Fred and Paul, But all the rest had meat. "Please quiet down," the owner said, Or else you'll not be served. Thus many who were raising cain From some of their fun were swerved. VVe finished soon, the bill was paid, And we were on our way. But though in a Dodge I did go up, I returned in a Chevrolet. We burnt the road up coming home- We really made some speed. Ah, that before it could have been used In our great hour of need! Wenona, Rutland, and El Paso All soon went flying by. And safe we came to dear old Normal Ere the twinkling of an eye.

S Seventy-two 1 I9 3 2 31 I Zlutnhingrapbp uf a Buurmat ln the year nineteen hundred twenty-eight I hrst saw the -light of clay in a large factory. I was a nice, big, bristly door mat. My first experi- ence in life came when I was taken to a counter of a large store and put on a pile with some other mats. I was the top one. One day a man came to the bald-headed clerk, who worked at my counter, and said some- thing to him. The clerk immediately picked me up and placed me on the counter by the customer, and the man took some money out of his pocket and gave to the clerk. I knew by their actions that I was being sold like a slave in the olden days. I shouldn't have cared if I were getting some of the money, but to see that bald-headed clerk get it just about burned me up. I felt like Hop- ping up and winding around him, but I controlled my temper for the time being, partly because I wasn't long enough to go around that fat old clerk twice, and partly because they rolled me up in some paper and tied a rope around me. Oh, but that rope hurt my stomach! The man took me on a street car and placed me on the Hoor while he sat on a seat. It happened that he sat down by an old lady and she kept using me for a foot rest. My, but I was getting low in the world! Finally the man picked me up and pushed a button that caused a buzzer to sound. The conductor stopped the car and we made our exit. The man took me to the steps of his house, and to my relief he cut the rope that was pinching my stomach. Then I was thrown down on the porch. From that day on until an hour ago people have been using me, or rather 1ny hide, for sandpaper to clean the bottoms of their shoes, and now my hide is worn out. I don't know where they got the idea, but I do know that when some of the boarders step on me after working hard all day digging ditches, it hurts worse than that rope did. At the present time I am sitting in the trash container along with some other rubbish, and I've been here for the last hour. XVheel Here comes the boy with some matches. Goodbye forever, folks! S S '39 . ., lv Q Gauss Qligg just then, without a moment's warning, a man hit me on the head as I was descending the stairs to the cellar to get an apple. I don't know how long it was before I regained consciousness, but when I came to I was in a car with three men, and as soon as they saw I was awake, they began talking to me. "Yer one bo' we're goin' to bump off good," murmured one of the men, "and nuthin's goin' to stop us!" Seventy-three : I9 3 2 31 1 "Yes, boy! and how!', chuckled another one. "At last we got yer. I tell yer, boys,' let's dump him in the river. Jim, drive out to the stream and let's get this over with." I started to plead with them. "Listen, men," I whined, "I've a wife and children to make a living for." "Shut up!" they cried. VVhen we arrived at the banks of the fatal river, they dragged me out of the car and made arrangements for the heave. They bound me and put an iron weight on me. "All right, boys, heave, ho!', Splash, bang! "At last you've come tof' cried my wife. "You were knocked so cold we finally had to duck you in a tub. You must have hit your head on the beam above the stairs. You've a bump as big as a goose egg!" I looked up to find myself at the bottom of the stairs. "That was a nice little dream, anyhow," I said. "VVell, I'll have to duck, after this, when I go down stairs." N. P., '32, Tlfklijnfs wha "Who are you, and what do you want F" I asked, not daring to un- lock the door. My heart was thumping, for only a week before a man on the next farm had been murdered at this time of night. I was the only one at home, and the clock chimed eleven to add to the chills racing up and down my spine. Not a weapon in the house, and again came the resounding thump, thump, thump on the oak door. "I refuse to open the door until you tell me who you are," I managed to say in a half-quavering voice. Thump, thump, thump, again broke forth on the night air. I looked frantically about for some possible weapon. There on the table lay the bread knife, which had not been put away since dinner. I grasped this, and turn- ing towards the door I commanded the one outside again to speakg but only the thump, thump, thump greeted my waiting ears. Pictures of bloody mur- ders raced through my mind. Scenes of Jessie James' life. Bold midnight homicides after robberies. Suddenly,I rose from my half-crouching posi- tion, pulled all of my courage together, and approached the door, gripping the knife in readiness to strike. I swung the door open and braced myself for the attack. Then Bruno, our shepherd dog, sauntered in and stretched himself before the blazing fireplace. J. H., 'aa Seventy-four 1' 1 I9 3 2 31 1 Jfiresihe Jfanries When the day's duties are finished, and twilight has suddenly dropped on the busy world, seeming to bring a hushed calm over one's spirits I like to sit curled up in my favorite chair, hidden from sight by its luxurious depths, and gaze dreamily into the fire that gleams across the hearth. Fancies, I know, will never come true. ,Tis well, for were all my dreams granted it would be like the saying, "If wishes were horses, beggars would ride." I have just buried myself in my favorite story. I am wondering how I should have acted if I had been in a runaway, or if my mother were like hers, when the fiames I have been watching unconsciously, suddenly seem to become an individual, standing out in my mind in a most stupendous manner. There is something fascinating in watching the flames in a fireplace reaching out their dazzling fiery fangs as if to ruin anything and everything within reach, and then to be seemingly swallowed up into ever-reaching space. My mind drifts to witches, and I see each fiery symbol a witch shak- ing her Hnger at me, and with a fiendish grin seeming to say, "Watch out!" But no longer are these flames witches. Each is a flounce or ruffle on my highly pictured, overly longed-for party dress, which of course is to be Hame-colored chiffon, a most ravishing frock. From one wild fancy to another my mind rapidly leaps, and now I find that each flounce, each ruffle, has in some mysterious way turned into horrible snakes' tongues in an African jungle. I feel the searching sun beat- ing down on me, and I am surrounded by a tremendous cobra, ready to spring any minute, getting me into its terrible clutches. Frightened at such thoughts, I bound out of my chair and with a ter- rible thud I come at last to my senses. Looking up, I End my brother glow- ering down at me with a most disgusted and annoyed expression, and to my surprise and dismay I find that while I have been soaring on wings of imagination he has been searching vainly for the evening paper, which I had unintentionally used as a cushion. B G l3'7 , ., N. when Blurbs Bihrrt Qllnunt One night my out-of-town guest and I decided we would go to the show. We didn't know what was on until we got there. Then we saw a large sign which read, "Lon Chaney in 'Midnight in London'." We had heard a great deal about this show, how spooky it was. But we decided to go in nevertheless. It was a very good show, but on the way home we would look over our shoulders to see if anything was following us. Seventy-five I I9 3 2 31 L XV hen we arrived home we went to bed very quietly, and were soon sleeping very soundly. Suddenly I felt somebody jerk my shoulder. I awoke instantly. My friend did not need to tell me what he wanted, because I heard somebody downstairs. We heard a voice say, "Hands up! Keep 'um up!" I was so fright- ened that I nearly jumped through the window. Next we heard the rattling of silverware. Then came the mumbled words, "Come on! Get back from the door!" By this time we were sitting up in bed. A whispered consultation ended in our decision to go downstairs and see who the intruder was. NVe got out of bed trembling. I opened the door quietly, although to us it seemed as if it creaked terribly. VV e stole down the stairs and stopped at the bo-ttom so we could listen. But hearing nothing, we went into one room, then to the next. VVe finally got up courage to turn on the light. But still we heard or saw no one. Then suddenly we heard somebody say, 'KHands up! Come on !" It was old Polly, the pet parrot. T. S., '32 The jfair Quartet There is a quartet of pretty young blondes, Who have never gone swimming in small ponds. Two of them are Gerry and jo, Iiach of whom has more than one beau. The other two are sisters fair- Martha the younger and Mary Elise.

A., '31 jfates VVhat fun it is to study faces! There are many kinds of faces and many different expressions, showing one's feelings and often one's character. Saturday night, while sitting in a car parked on a main street of town, one has an excellent opportunity to watch faces. Oh, look at this man with an armload of groceries. He seems wor- ried. I wonder why. Perhaps he doesn't know from where the money for the next groceries is coming. He'd better hold his head up or l1e'll bump into some one. This girl looks bored. She appears to be wondering why she ever came down town. Oh, what caused her face to light up so? I see now. There comes a girl who is waving to her. They greet each other joyfully and walk off arm in arm, laughing and talking. P VVhat is that man looking for? I don't think I'd like him-he looks too cross. His face breaks into a cruel smile as if to sav, "Aha. I've found you," and he walks swiftly awav. Here he comes back, dragging a little boy after him. I feel sorry for the boy. I'd run away from that man, too. Such a good-looking couple! I wonder where they are going. They seem happy. Her face is wreathed in smiles as she listens to him. Perhaps he is complimenting her, for she blushes slightly as he looks adoringly at her. That looks like a happy group. They must be going to the skating rink, for they are carrying skates. See the little girl standing alone! She looks wistfully after them. She wants to go with them, but she has no skatesg and besides, she must watch her little brother. Yes, she turns back to him just as he starts into the street. There goes the busy shop girl. She must hasten back to her place after a hurried bite of supper. Oh, how tired she looks! But soon work will be over, and she can go home. Seventy-seven 1 I9 3 2 31 1 That man's having a hard time reading something on a small card in his hand. He may be wondering why wives can't write their lists more clearly or else do their own errands. See, the frown leaves his face! He's discovered what was written on the card. There he goes hurrying on to finish his errands. There must be a game tonight, for here come a group of high-school boys and girls waving banners and ribbons. They are all laughing and talking gaily. They appear to be prepared for a good time, and I judge that they'll get it. See that woman hurrying by. She looks worn out. VVhat attractive little girls are following her! They are teasing her to stop and look at this or to buy that until she is exhausted trying to persuade them to follow her. In spite of their teasing she goes resolutely on. That man has something to do and is going to do it. His face shows his determination. VV hat a contrast to the first man is this man who comes next. He is slouching aimlessly along with a blank look on his face. He appears to have nothing better to do. What a striking appearance this woman has. She has a satisfied expression on her face. She must be through her shopping. Yes, she is. She comes and gets into the car. It is Motherg so I must end my study and drive her home. E. N., UH. Ilaigh bpirit uf Qliuhap Jo and Helen entered the McCormick gym on the night of the Normal High-U. High basketball game. "Say, Io, where's everybody ?l' "VVhy, I don't know. Maybe the game was scheduled for eight in- stead of seven-thirty. There are not thirty here yet, and it's already seven- thirty." This was the conversation overheard as two alumnae of U. High entered the gym. "Helen, there's Jimmie. Let's ask him." "Hello, Jimmie. Gee, it's been ages since I've seen you," exclaimed Helen and jo in a chorus. "Howdy, Jo and Helen. How come you're here ?" welcomed jim. "You see, Dad and Mother are at Aunt Lou's, and on our trip to the South we intend to stay here three days. It so happened that we were able to attend this game," explained Jo. Seventy-eight I9 .32 31 1 "Lucky, I wish I were going South," sighed jim. 66 VVhen does the game begin, Jim ?" questioned Helen. "The regular game begins at seven-thirty. Why?" responded jim. "Is this all that come to U. High games now P" questioned Jo. KC The average attendance is about sixty, and one-third of them are late," responded Jim. "Remember when we were in high school? Almost every one came to games. We got to them early too, and gave them a send-off and let them know we were backing them up. Look at U. High now. About sixty at a game, pepless yelling, no spirit at all. What an attitude for a school to take!" This severe criticism came from Jo. "Look at those girls! They's afraid to yell. They might spoil their dignity. Eating candy and talking from the first of the game until the final gun!" exclaimed Helen. "All that half of them come for is the date afterward. They hardly watch the game at all," said Jim. . At last the game began and the three became silent. At the quarter the game was four to five, U. High's favor, "Gee, that was thrilling. W'atching old U. High again is great!" exclaimed excited jo. "They have a dandy bunch of fellows," remarked Jim, "but how the students back them up! They work hard, then a few freshmen and very few upperclassmen yell a little for them. What a school spirit!" A. M., '32. Qlfxams Exams! Exams! I wonder who ever thought of such terrible things. It gives one a heavy shock to hear the teacher announce that there is going to be an ordeal of that kind the next day. I have been expecting the word "exam" for the past month, but when it comes I shiver and shake at the thought of it. Some one will probably get one hundred, but not I. I ask some of the students if they are taking their books home and they say no. Then I wonder how they could have got everything out of that book into the region of their heads called brains. I start for home with my book under my arm. I go about two blocks and whom should I' meet but an old schoolmate. She wants me to go to the basketball game tonight. I tell her I can't, I have an "exam" tomorrow. But I can hardly resist the temptation of saying that I will go. Seventy-n ne 1 I9 3 2 31 1 When I get home and eat lunch I sit down to study, but I can only stare at each page as I turn them one after another. I should have learned all this long ago, but I tried just to "get by". I sit dreaming of some of the good times that we had today, then suddenly I hear the clock in the hall strike twelve. Mamma calls down stairs and says it is time for me to go to bed. I take a last glance at the good knowledge of the book and hurry off to bed, only to dream of the exam. I know nothing except the answer to the last question. I try to pump some suggestions out of the teacher without any results. I try on all the questions, but I know that only the last one will be accepted. I hear the bell ring. I awake suddenly to find that the clock is striking seven. Some one is calling for me to get up. I hurry off to school. At last the fatal hour arrives. Then I find that my dream really comes true. When I leave class as the last bell rings, I am glad-yes, indeed glad-that the exam is over, even though I did not pass. My last wish will be that I shall not have to take an examination to enter into the City of Gold, if so, I hope that it will not be so difficult as these monthly exams. G. I-I., ,32 Vanity Vanity is a useless thing. It does not further one's interest, it does not compel admiration, it does not indicate good breeding. Vanity is a re- sult of too much self-interest. One may take pride in onels appearance, in one's achievements, or in onels connections. But vanity is not included in pride. There is no excuse for vanity on any grounds. VVe all know it is a drawback to any one's character. No one wishes to cultivate it, yet it pops up unawares sometimes. Probably all of us have at some time been caught at the mirror, primping that last tiny second. How we blush to think of it. Vanity! In us! I venture to say that not one person can deny that he has caught himself at some time with a complacent smirk upon his face when the realization of his superiority in some matter suddenly comes to him. Again, the burning shame of it. At worst, however, it is a fault of which most of us are aware, and if we correct ourselves each time it rears its ugly head, We will soon be rid of it. Vanity. Toss it out the window. M. B., '32 Q The essay above won a High School Pantagraph prize for the best essay of the weekj Eighty 2-Kilgleiirs Girls Qltbletins I I9 3 2 31 1 GE. QI. QI.

Part of the credit for success in the Tournament goes to the Fresh- men teamg part to the coach, Miss Mann. The girls had a very good team, which they should try very hard to keep intact next year. If there were more girls in U. High such as Margaret Sage, Renee Harper, Eleanor Coen, Alice Beyer, U. High could have several good basketball teams. The girls who were chosen on the varsity team were Mary Louise Barger, Alice Beyer, Mary Carver, Eleanor Coen, Elsa Graves, Esther Graves, Renee Harper, and Margaret Sage. Mary Carver served as Manager. ' Swarm' During the fall term there were forty-eight girls out for soccer. The first few weeks rules and instructions of the game were given. After eight weeks of practice a team organized as the Rinkeydinks entered the I. S. N. U. Intra-Mural Soccer Tournament, in whicheeight teams were participating.

G., Zburkep This year hockey has been more successful than ever before. For almost every practice there were two full teams, twenty-two girls. During the first week of school a hockey pep meeting was held, and the twenty-two new hockey clubs which G. A. A. had bought were sand- papered and prepared for oiling. At this meeting many freshmen were present, and Miss Brown and some of the upper-class girls told interesting things about hockey. Later in the first month the Women's Athletic Association of I. S. Eighty-six as 3 2 31 N. U. gave us some red and green flannel jackets to be used in designating' the teams. These were greatly appreciated. It has always been a custom to have the head of a sport co-operate with Miss Brown in selecting a varsity team. This year the team was com- posed of Jeanne Parret, Barbara Turner, Julia Blum, Elsa Graves, Fern Riley, Margaret Sage, Alice Beyer, Helen Basting, Eleanor Coen, Renee Harper, and Mary Carver. Throughout the term games were played between teams composed of members of two classes. For instance, a Freshman-Senior team played the junior-Sophomore team. It is believed that this year more skilled play- ers were developed than ever before, and it is hoped that this sport may become even more popular in coming years. Miss Brown was the instructor of the group and julia Blum was Head of Hockey. Qliennis Tennis has always been a favorite outdoor sport, and this year it seemed more popular than ever. Every Wednesday afternoon, in a two-hour class, the fundamental strokes were taught and given for valuable practice. Miss Marion Denzer, an I. S. N. U. student, was in charge. Towards the end of the year there was held an elimination tourna- ment, in which a great many planned to take part. Those that have already shown their interest in tennis are Alice Beyer Margaret Sage Elaine Ingram Allene Bright Evelyn Tarlton Eleanor Coen Henrietta Howard Renee Harper Trunella Walker Dorothy Anderson Charlotte FitzHenry Marie Rash Mildred Killian Mary Barger Qrtherp Archery is becoming more popular every year. This year it was very successful. Those that enjoyed the sport and came out often were Vivienne Vincent Trunella Walker Henrietta Howard Renee Harper Mary Louise Barger Eleanor Coen Mildred Landis Margaret Sage Grace Terwilliger Dorothy Anderson Marie Rash Nellie Tinsley Mariada Duesing Alice Beyer Evelyn Tarlton Miriam Coen Some of the essentials in archery are a keen eye and good aim, a Steady hand, and love of the sport.

The following people came out regularly for baseball: Dorothy Riley Frances White Renee Harper Alice Beyer Eleanor Coen Mariada Duesing Mary Louise Barger Esther Ropp Helen Basting Marjorie Basting Grace Terwilliger Allene Bright Jessie Langhoff Marjory Mays Elsa Graves Esther Graves Nellie Tinsley Annabelle Innis Emily Norton Jeanne Parret lulia Blum Mary Carver Lilith Southgate Margaret Sage Bowling The bowling season was marked by pep and enthusiasm. All classes were well represented. The freshmen showed a deep interest in bowling and many of them developed into players of promise. The total number of girls out was 31. The highest score of the season was made by Alice Beyer, a fresh- man. The six high scores of the season were Alice Beyer .............................. Emily Norton --- Maurine Blum ..... Jessie Langholf .... Lilith Southgate .... Grace Terwilliger ................................. score 177 score 156 score 156 score 148 score 138 score 130 The six high scores were taken each week during the season and Grace Terwilliger Margaret Sage Helen Stover posted in the alley. The last three weeks of the season a tournament between classes was held. Two games were played each week for the three weeks. The Junior and Sophomore classes were the only classes finishing. The average score of each class was taken. The Junior Class won, with an average of 131. The Sophomore Class average was 110. Emily Norton had the highest average for the three weeks from the Junior Classg her average was 132. Grace Terwilliger had the highest average in the Sophomore Classg her average for the three weeks was '124.

Prospects looked all the more gloomy when Captain-elect "Pina" Goff and Mike Seale failed to return to school. From the standpoint of games won and lost, the sea- son might be deemed a failure. But taking into consideration that the team was made up principally of inexperienced men, and that the majority of the team will return next year, the season most certainly would be termed a success. Letter-men this season are Captain Rader, White, Adams, Schenfeldt, Quinn, Fuller, Bosnjack, Callans, Weber, Noggle, Cawood, McConkey, and Horney, of whom Fuller, Bosnjack, Callans, McConkey, Weber, Quinn, Burns, and Horney will he back to form the backbone for a successful season next year. Some of the reserves who did not play in enough quarters to get a letter for their services this year, but will be of great service in the next campaign are Melvin Jacquat, Truman Sage, Don Adams, Rod Koehler, "Rich', Koehler, Bob Feek, Paul Flanagan, and "Red', Darley. A great deal of credit goes to Arthur Armbruster who handled the Reserve team during the season. Ninety 1 I9 3 2 31 1 The beasnn U. HIGH, 6, EL PASO, 6. After a short practice period U. High went onto McCormick field against the pride of El Paso. Both teams showed inexperience, and the game ended in a deadlock. U. HIGH, 6, PONTIAC, 6. Again our boys went out on McCormick field and returned with the verdict going neither way. U. High pushed over a touchdown in the second period, displaying a strong passing attack featuring Adams and White. The Indians, however, came back in the third period to tie the count. Altlio on several occasions U. High threatened the Indians' goal, the Pontiac boys braced and thwarted all our advances before any danger occurred. U. HIGH, 18g NORMAL, 21. Our old rivals from out Sudduth Road played host to the Green and Gold, and contrary to all rules of etiquette, took a heart-breaking game from our boys. It was a wild affair, with one team scoring, the other following suit. It was a case of who had the place kicker, as Les Murray placed three beautiful kicks between the uprights, while Herbie had tough luck on all of his attempts. U. HIGH, 75 STREATOR, 32. Playing the best game of the season, U. High succumbed to the highly touted Streator High team. The game was much better than the score might indicate, as U. High held the heavier team on even terms the greater part of the struggle. U. HIGH, 0, LEROY, 33. Not much can be said of this game, as U. High was almost hopelessly outclassed by the bigger, more experienced Leroy outfit. U. HIGH, 65 BLOOMINGTON, 27. Holding the Inter-City champions on even terms most of the first half, the Green and Gold cause weakened, and the Purple crushed on ruth- lessly to victory. The result might have been different if Schenfeldt and Horney had not been injured, and had Burns been eligible, but since games are not won by 'ifs'-we lost. U. HIGH, Og WESTVILLE, 45. Our lads travelled to Westville to uphold the fine record that our last year's team had impressed upon the coal miners. The Orange-jersied lads were out to avenge the feat of last year, however, and as a result the Green and Gold did not fare so well. U. HIGH, 2, TRINITY, 19. In the closing of the season the Green and Gold fought bravelyg but so did the Irish. U. High came within two inches of a touchdown when McConkey crashed thru the Irish forward wall, but they held, then Guttchow punted. As Guttchow was out of bounds on the play, U. High was awarded a safety. Ninety-one 1 I9 31112 31 1 1 n Swefle Kaya Ukkung K sr Herb - 71:17, Y ,Q 'ff ff U Q' 1,3 'QD ff 'z 'W A IJ " Ban" I9 Z 2 31 1 LAURELL MCCONKEY "Swede" was a big brute, as all our opponents learned. Playing a good game in the line at the first of the season, he was shifted to the backfield, where he became a consistent ground gainer. The "Swede" has one more year of competi- tion, and will fit in on both the line and backfield. It is all- around ability like this that makes any coach happy. HERBERT ADAMS "Herbie', was converted from a halfback to the quar- terback berth, and from this position he directed the team in faultless style. He was a deadly tackler and one of the best passers in the twin cities. After Horney's injury, he carried the kicking responsibility in great style. His generalship was one of the bright lights of the season. The fact that "Herb" was picked as all-city quarterback was a tribute to his ability. EUGENE CAWOOD "Kayo" weighing a little over one hundred twenty pounds, played a wonderful game at fullback. Always pitted against a man twice his size, "Kayo" outwitted his opponent by brain work and speed. As he was a senior this year, we shall hear no more of his roaming. JOHN WHITE "-lazleu was one of the five veterans to return to the fold when the moleskins were dished out to all the aspirants last autumn. Breaking up the interference was .Iohnny's spec- ialty, but he had no equal in receiving passes and getting down under punts. U. High will lose a wonderful athlete and a good sportslnan when "jazle" checks out this year. WILLIAM QUINN "Thox" was little but mighty, and all opponents who picked him as a soft spot because of his size were fooled. Bill will be back next year, and with his two years' experience at guard behind him, should strengthen one side of the line. "Thox" is another boy who follows that word 'fight'. Ninety-three P I9 36212 31 L ickn Ni C R ty-four N9 " "Fr-zaaae 1 I9 1 2 31 L RICHARD WEBER "Dickie" is another junior who fought bravely for U. High. Altho he did not play full time, he plugged up the holes in our line and was seen to stop many a charge that might have proved disastrous. "Dick" will be back next year. striving to keep up the good work as a regular. FORREST NOGGLE "Noggle" was a deadly tacklerg and altho he did not play regularly, the time that he was in he showed he had the kind of courage that football players must have. This was Forrest's last year with the team, and his willingness and determination were a great asset to the squad. KENNETH FULLER, Captain-elect "Kenny" played a whale of a game at the pivot posi- tion. His accurate passes were an essential cog in the of- fensive machinery of Messrs. Douglass and Armbruster, and his ability to open up holes in the opponents' front wall made him doubly valuable. As asenior and captain next year "Kenny" should have a banner season. NICK BOSNJACK "Nickle" was the smallest man on the team, but he was one of the most aggressive members at that. Very few gains were made around his end of the line. Nick will be back with us next year, and his experience will take care of one of the wing positions. FRED CALLANS "Freddie" was the only freshman to win his "U" in football this year. He was as hard as nails and was especially noted for his neat tackling, always hitting the ball carrier hard and low. VVith three more years ahead of him Freddie is one of the most promising boys on the squad. We'll hear more from him. Ninety-five lo MXN I I9 VY Amp 31 1 HQ VH D WX 1 I9 1 2 31 .L THOMAS HORNEY "Tom" was an exceptionally good kickerg he averaged around Hfty yards on all his kicks. "Tom" played a whale of a game at fullback until the Streator game, where he re- ceived a painful head injury. However, his fighting spirit was not downed, and he came back the next week against Bloomington and was showing real stuff until he injured his head again, and this time it resulted in concussion of the brain. The accident was costly to U. High, as "Tom" had two years ahead of him. RALPH RADER, Captain "Red" was a splendid leader and showed the old "U, High fight" at all times. A splendid tackle on both offense and defense, he will leave a big gap for skipper Douglass to fill next fall when it comes time to boot the pig skin around a bit. ARTHUR ARMBRUSTER, Assistant Coach "Art" was a great aid to Tommy, and his experience and knowledge was one reason the line looked so good. REX DARLING, Manager Rex was a good manager and a fine fellow. VVILLIAM SCHENFELDT "Shinny" was hampered with a pair of bad knees all seasong nevertheless, he played in great style. Bill closed his high school career in a blaze of glory in the Trinity game, when he played on sheer nerve the entire game with both knees out of place, necessitating straps, tape, casts, etc. The loss of "Shin" will surely be felt next year. RALPH BURNS "Sunshine" backed up the line in a wonderful fashion. Altho he did not receive his "U" because of scholastic diffi- culties, "Red" missed only four quarters the entire season: and his experience will aid immensely next year, as he is a great blocker. J. 1 I9 S 2 31 1 igaskethall 1930-1931 During the 1930-31 season, Coach T. Douglass again put a strong team on the court. VV ith only three lettermen back-namely, Captain "Herb" Adams, "Johnnie" lVhite, and "Silent Bill" McKnight-a heavy task faced Coach Douglass, but long drills and hard work combined soon told, and the result was one of the best teams in Central Illinois. U. High won the District Tournament, held at Memorial Gymnasium tXVesleyanj, for the first time in five years, and then reached the semi-finals in the Springfield Sectional. U. High was a team that came through in the pinch and may be termed a truly great little team. Starting the season with only ten days' practice, we journeyed to Morris, where we were drubbed 28-19. The following night we went to Cooksville, and hy using three teams, we drubbed them 29-8. One week later we bumped Mazon 28-9. Behind at the half 6-7, Coach shifted "Johnnie" White to forward, and the change helped greatly. From this point on XVhite remained at forward. Athens trimmed us the following week 30-11. The small Hoor was a distinct handicap. VVe again "took it on the chin" at Decatur, for the State-Champions beat us 18-8. VVe lost the next two games to inter-city teams, Trinity beating us 13-9 in a defensive, slow- break game, and B. H. S. nosing us out 19-17 on our Hoof. VVe continued our losing ways at Gibson City, where we bowed to the Drummer Township lads 21-14-, their long shots telling in the final minutes of the game. A week later Cooksville came to town, and it took three U. High teams to subdue them. The final count was 50-5. We next traveled to Mt. Pulaski, where the Logan County boys trounced us 13-9 in a slow-break game. We started winning again by giving Gibson City a severe lacing, 21-11. The boys sporting the Green and Gold completely outclassed Drummer. U. High next defeated B. H. S. fBloomingtonj 20-18 in an overtime, hectic struggle. llut a week later Normal took us down the line to the tune of 21-14. U. High's passing attack was weak, and therein was the outcome. The Decatur team was our next opponent. We held them down to a 12-6 lead at the half and then fired away at the basket. The final score was 14-12 in favor of the Reds. tDecatur later won the State Championshipj VVe then trounced Mazon, Athens, Normal, and Mt. Pulaski by the respective scores of 35-15, 22-13, 33-22, and 25-18. We bowed before Trinity in a poor ex- hibition, 21-14, in the final game before the District Tournament. I9 ii 2 31 In the District Tourney we defeated Normal High 30-29 in a great battle, then bumped Lexington 26-18, and continued winning by defeating Downs 20-17. In the finals we defeated Bloomington. After trailing at the half 6-9 we "got hot" and trounced them sufficiently to lead at the final gun 21-12. The following week we went to Springtield to participate in the Sec- tional Tournament. It was the first time in five years that U. High has entered the Sectional. NVe defeated Petersburg, a strong team, 28-18 after being even at the half. In the semi-finals we played Springfield. "Silent Bill" McKnight, our star center, was physically incapacitated because of an injury to his foot, nevertheless, we fought our hearts out. A last- minute rally gave Springfield the game, 29-20. The season was officially closed at the annual banquet, held at the Y. VV. C. A. 'At this gathering Truman Sage was elected Captain of next year's team. The lettermen for the season were H. Adams, NVhite, McKnight, D. Adams, Sage, Barton, llacquat, and Blair. Of these Sage, D. Adams. Barton, Jacquat, and Blair will be back for another successful season. A great little team is disbanded and another season is finished. Ninety-seven 1 I9 5012 51 JX I MJ o KNYXXQ ll ,, 'Ax .MA ' fur f BOCKCXW Q gm 1 I9 1 2 31 I HERBERT UHERBIEU ADAMS-Captain "Herbie" was the outstanding player on the Green and Gold club. His tight defensive play and sterling offensive ability were the big cogs in the U. High team play. Time after time "Herb" came through with baskets in the pinch to put the game on ice. Herb is a senior, and he will be sorely missed next season. JOHN "JOHNNIl2" VVHITE "Johnnie" was shifted from guard to forward early in the season, and he developed into the leading scorer of the team. He played a line Hoor game, and on defense clung to his man like a leech. "Johnnie's" one- handed shots from the free-throw line were spectacular and deadly. "Johnnie" is a senior, another player who will be greatly missed next season. TRUMAN USATCH EL" SAGE-Captain-elect "Satch" developed wonderfully during the season and won for him- self a regular position at guard before the season ended. His tight defensive play and floor work were a revelation. "Satch's" specialty was long shots, and his percentage on them was indeed high. Satch is a junior. WILLIAM "BILL,' MCKNIGHT "Bill's" height was advantageous in controlling the tip-off during the season. He seldom failed in his rebounding efforts, and his accurate passing accounted for many of his team mates' baskets. "Bill" played his best game during the District Tournament. Bill is a senior, he, Adams, and VVhite are the only basket-shooters who will be lost by graduation. Ninety- e Elm Qkgcg I9 g5Q123 31 1 5m?Sg I I aims F A f H d fl Ilamcon lLSo,v+i 1 I9 1 2 31 L DONALD "DON" ADAMS "Don" developed from the Frosh-Sophomore team to a full-Hedged U. High regular. "Don's" specialty was long shots, exhibited noticeably in the Decatur game, when he kept U. High in the running by his spectacu- lar long shots. "Don" is a sophomore, with a great prep career ahead of him. VVILBURIHDEACONU BARTON "Deac" was a "hot shot". His deceptiveness was his strong point. Deacon played his best games early in the season, but he also played con- sistently throughout the entire season. "Deac" was rangy, and especially fine on short shots under the basket. He is a junior, so can greatly he-lp the team next year. JAMES "JIM" HOLLEY-Iuanager "Jimmie" was the manager during the 1930-31 campaign. He was unanimously selected as the best manager U. High has had in the last few years. "jimmie,' not only served as manager, but was a comfort to many a down-hearted fellow-student connected with athletics. "jun" may well be proud of his "UU-he deserves it. ELLIS "CI-IICKH BLAIR ' "Chick" was a fine shot. Every time "Chick" was substituted he proved his worth either by defensive ability or by his fine shooting. "Chick" is a junior, and he should be one of the best men on the team next year. GLEN "WART" JACQUAT "Wart" was another player that improved during the season, and by the end of the season he was one of the leading candidates for a guard posi- tion. "Wart" played his best games in the Springfield Sectional by dropping in four baskets. He is a sophomore with a brilliant future.

The average business may be conducted as the owner pleases. He may choose his customers at will, he may charge what hc pleases, he is under no obligation to supply his goods immediately. Public utility companies are under definite obligation to fur- nish service promptly to every applicant. Utility service must be ready 24 hours of the day, every day of the year. Public utility service must be available at all times, whether it is used or not. It must be ready for use in any quantity, at any hour of the day or night. This "readiness to serve" is one of the problems of the public service companies. A tremendous outlay in equipment is required and a large force of employees needed to provide ample facilities for meeting, on a momentss notice, the public demand.
