"You bet, Tcm. But, you know, I'll be rather sorry to leave this year be- hind. We had a lot of good times. For instance, think of all the fun we had giving our junior play, "Seventeen!" "Oh, yes! It is a faw, faw bettah thing that I do." "Aw, do you have to go off on that every time I mention the subject? Well anyway it was a good play. Do you remember how we rushed around selling those tickets?" "Speaking of selling, our candy committee certainly brought in the mon- ey by selling refreshments at our games, didn't it?" "They sure did. Well we put that money to a good use. Wasn 't that a fine junior-senior banquet we had at Maplewood Country Club?" "Yes, I guess that was the high spot of the year." "It wouldn't do to forget the fine work our class officers did. Let's see, there was Wesley Stephens as president. Tom Stombaugh as vice-president, and Harriet J acquat as secretary and treasurer. " "That's right. They and our class sponsors, Miss Stroud and Mr.Poppin, certainly did their very best to help make this a good year. " By the way, Tom, I see that you havea class ring with a set in it. Mine's plain gold." "Well, Iguess each of us got what he wanted. It was a long wait for those rings, but they were worth it." "And wasn't that an impressive ring ceremony we had? I hope everybody realizes the high standards those rings symbolize." "I believe that we do. Well, Dick, I'll see you at the class picnic out at Lake Bloomington tomorrow. " "Okay, Tom. Be sure to go without your breakfast so you can eat your share of the sandwiches."

The Spirit of Miss Stephens, class sponsor, pre- sides at the council. SPIRIT OF MISS S. Spirits, we are gathered here to discuss the doings of the sophomore class. Sports seem to be very popular, so, Spirit of the Athletic Field, your turn comes first. SPIRIT OF THE ATHLETIC FIELD. Iam here to report well of the sophomores in athletics. ln all sports they conducted themselves ably and with a high degree of sportsmanship. Yes, the sophomore class did very well indeed. SPIRIT OF MISS S. Thank you, Spirit, and now let us turn from sports to studies. Spirit of the Honor Roll, what have you to say? SPIRIT OF THE HONOR ROLL. For me the sophomores have done well. They stand high in both studies and attendance. SPIRIT OF MISS S. And now I call on the Spirit of Parties. Spirit, what entertainments has this class had? SPIRIT OF PARTIES. They have had a class party of their own and have not only attended but have assisted in directing the all-school parties. SPIRIT OF MISS S. Spirit of Student Council, it is now your turn. SPIRIT OF THE S. C. I report that the sophomores have been very active on the Council and through their representatives have taken a real interest in school affairs. SPIRIT OF MISS S. Spirits, you have heard what has been said. Now we come to the last speaker, the Spirit of the Whole School. SPIRIT OF THE W. S. I have been saying this for many years, but I can do nothing but say it again. This is the finest sophomore class we've ever had!

Just a few days in which to be freshmen. It seems such a short time since 107 freshmen were wondering what to do next at the beginning of school last fall. Out of the class we finally selected Jacques Evans to lead our meetings, with Penelope Fatouras to take charge when Jacques was absent, which wasn't much. Matters that needed to be written down were taken care of by Virginia Johnson. Garth Stauffer was our money watcher. Miss Ebel and Miss Winegarner, our sponsors, helped give our first suc- cessful party, a weiner roast at the Children's School. At our freshman initiation the seniors brought several freshmen to trial for various misdeeds. It certainly proved entertainment for all classes, even ours! Our sentence was to present an assembly program. We thought and thought and finally hit upon the idea of an amateur broadcast. Not to be conceited at all, but the freshman are quite a talented lot. We expect our several budding scientists to accomplish great things some day. Well-worn and funny sketches tell of cartoonists in our class. Stubby pencils remind me of several people who have had prize essays, poems, and pictures in the Pantagraph. One freshman was on the first team in basketball, and several of the class were members of the "B" team. Our cheering section was led part of the time by three freshman girls. Quite a number of our class are musically minded and belong to glee clubs, orchestra, and band. You know, diary, I can't decide whether I'm sorry or glad about not being a freshman anymore. It's hard to say. l31l 5 rf X-5 'Y Stauffer, Ellison, Lane, Ullian, jackson, Stover, johnson, Crumbaugh, Yates 'i'11ylor, Miss Stephens fsponsorj, Cruikshank, Mr. Larsen fsponsorj, Erclmann Mr. Fogler, Miss Yates, Fatouras, Ellison, Stombaugh, Hubbard, Stephens, Dr Wzlggcmner, Mr. lvens, Johnson. l34l gtudlont Councill Through their oflicers, the student coifncil, the University High School Student Association has this year attained a high degree of self-government. Homecoming at U.High, planned by the student council, was a gala affair. The week-end program included a bonfire, a parade, the Clinton game, and the all-school party. All events were well attended, and the council had suc- ceeded in one of its foremost aims, that of promoting school spirit. To the music of Dave Lyman's orchestra, the council ushered in another highly successful party on March 19. - Turning from social duties, the council assisted Dr. Waggoner in many administrative matters, making recommendations which were afterwards put into effect. In attacking the study hall problem, the council appointed various members to try their hands at running study halls and then to make recommendations. This was done, with resulting improvement. This year's Council has laid the groundwork for student councils in future years to build upon. Cimiontionmont dioandl Une of the hardest working, yet most inauspicious groups in U. High, is the apportionment board. Several fall and winter nights one could have seen a tired, hungry-looking group trudging out of the building around six o'clock in the evening. This group was the apportionment board, fresh from atangle with a mass of figures. This was the group that disbursed the activity fee of U. High's 315 students. Chairman Fogler, Mr. lvens, Dr. Waggoner, Miss Stephens, Miss Yates, Penelope Fatouras, Glenn Johnson, Tom Stombaugh, Harold Hubbard, and Ernest Ellison make up the personnel of the board. l35l Miss, Hamilton fsponsorj, Turner, Stombaugh, Dunn, Taylor, Peterson.

' l36l Y allaaembiiq Committee Speakers, musicians, movies--all came in for their share of the year's assembly programs. A wide variety of programs, educational as well as entertaining, were secured, thanks to our efficient assembly committee. Reciprocal co-operation between the committee and the school clubs formed the basis for many assembly programs, such as those sponsored by Rostrum, Thalian, the social science club, and the band. To give the students information concerning matters apart from every- day school life, the committee called in business and professional men and women, including Miss Berninger of the I. S. N. U. faculty, Mrs. Woods of the State Department of Public Welfare, and Mr. Sam Campbell, natural scientist. For their untiring eHorts in providing the students with the best types of programs, the members of this committee deserve the commendation of everyone connected with the school. J'io non Society, Scholarship, leadership, character, and service are the four tenets of the Walter Dill Scott chapter of the National Honor Society. On the basis of these four qualities, members were chosen and the society organized with Mr. Ell- wood as sponsor. By publishing again the freshman handbook, the society has made an outstanding contribution to the school. This book will be placed in the hands of every student coming to U. High next year, for the purpose of quickly acquainting them with traditions, customs, and organizations of this school. April 16 marked the annual banquet with Normal High's chapters, and the groups enjoyed coming together in this friendly fashion. As a sequel to a successful year, the chapter held its own banquet late in the spring, after the incoming junior members had been initiated into the so- ciety. i37l 5 ? , .7 E A 347 Pzlrret E.

Since 1923 Thalian has debated against Rostrum in semi-'annual encoun- ters for the Ferd C. McCormick cup. By virtue of their fall victory over Ros- trum, the girls gained temporary possession of the cup. Dorothy Ann Taylor's Lake Bloomington cabin was the site of a weiner roast held in the fall. Spring time is carnival time, and Thalian made sure the school would not have to forego such a bit of varied entertainment by sponsoring its annual carnival. No year would be complete without a banquet, and this one was no excep- tion. As in years past, the Velma Horn Meyer medal was presented at the time to the best all-around Thalian girl. CROAtnum This venerable organization of boy orators was ably sponsored this year by Mr. Duane Kidd of I.S.N.U. First event of a year packed with events was a fall weiner roast, well attended by Rostrum members and auxilliary. As the time for Rostrum-Thalian debate drew near, the boys began hunting for talent to hold possession of the McCormick cup for Rostrum. Debating the question of public ownership of utilities, Jim Turner and Tony Jennings met their Waterloo in Margaret Stover and Lois Fuller, and the cup changed hands. At a Tilden-Hall banquet, held February 13, the boys showed their feminine guests that, although they may lose a debate, they are still supreme when it comes to eating roast turkey. In the spring the members journeyed to a distant metropolis for the annual stag banquet,a season's highlight, and the crowning event of the year. l39l Shantz, Lamb, Bankert, Harvey, Johnson, XVullenwaber, Keller, Mr. Thompson fsponsorj, Parret, Ireland, Weird, Staker, Taylor, Turner, Goodier, V.

As one of the vocational clubs, the Theatre Guild played an important part in school life. Among the plays presented during the course of the year were "The Rector" and"The Minuetf' In the spring the guild had charge of the make-up work for the senior play and handled it in creditable fashion. Aside from playing before our high school groups, the guild was called before I.S.N.U. groups and before the rural educational gathering in the fall. In addition to the dramatic activities of the club, two outstanding social events were held, the fall weiner roast at Lake Bloomington and the christ- mas party at the home of Dorothy Ann Taylor. gn.-Soph. fllnamaticla Climb In an effort to outdo their elders, the younger set of U.High dramatists, the Freshman - Sophmore Dramatics Club, started the year off with a bang by presenting "Uplifting Sadie", a farcical comedy, to an uproarious assembly. During the second semester, the club presented two plays, "Beau of Bath" and "In a Garden", at exchange assemblies with Normal Community High School. One of the year's highlights was a trip to the back-stage of the Consist- ory, where the club inspected scenery and make-up of the Bloomington Passion Play. A great deal of practical information was gained on this trip. This club has filled a vacancy in school life -- namely, the training of dra- matic talent in the underclassmen -- and it is hoped that they will continue to prosper in the years to come. l41l W.

Alter- nating labroratory and literary sessions, the club gathered information regarding both the practice and theory of science. Members of the club may work in any field of science they desire to en- gage in, and this year the fields were varied. Among other subjects, the group chose botany, physical science, bacteriology, nature study, electricity, and biology. Miss McAvoy has been sponsor of the group since it was organ- ized two years ago. During the state academy meeting at Rockford, May 1 and 2, members of this club entered exhibits which were very fine. With the coming of spring, the club went on various hikes and excursions to study things scientific. .Soclall .Science Climb Under the guidance of Miss Gertrude Stephens, the James Harvey Robinson Social Science Club has had a successful year. Merlin Erdman and Alice Goodier headed the club the first and second semesters respectively and managed to keep the group from becoming too heated over such controversial issues as Roosevelt vs. Landon and the Su- preme Court. As election battles raged on the national front, the club showed its inter- est in things political by treating the assembly to an old-fashioned political rally with the brass band, bursts of oratory, and all that goes with such a demonstration. As November 3 drew near, the members of the group found themselves at odds on a then hotly contested question. Miss Stephens, however, soothed the savage breast on election eve by inviting the group to her home to listen to the election returns, over sandwiches and cups of steaming cocoa. l43l il Miller, Martcheniak, Hastings, Lowell, Deaton, Harvey, V.

Girls in glee club showed an interest in the new idea of octettes and ensembles. This is one of the biggest steps forward taken by the glee clubs this year. These groups have given programs for the Normal History Club and for N.C.H.S. assembly. When PTA held a special meeting for the parents of high school students, entertainment was supplied by the glee club and octettes. In our own school the glee clubs showed talent in home rooms and in assembly. Ending the year, they sang over W J B C and supplied the music for baccalaureate and commencement. Verlyn Myers, Marian Ireland, Mary Carolyn Goodier, Dorothy Christian, Donna Fern Miller, and Betty Von Allmen represented the girls on the ex- Cliloufla' Qilz-ze Cllub Successful in every way was the boys' glee club of this year. Broadcas- ing from the Old Castle studios of W J B C, they gave an entertaining display of their talent. cutive board. Fathers and sons of the Centennial Christian Church were entertained by the double quartet on the occasion of their annual banquet. At the special high school P. T. A. meeting, the parents enjoyed a program of songs by the club and the double quartet. Assembly programs were presented at N. C. H. S and at U. High. To end the year, the club supplied music for baccalaurate and commencement. Charles Miller, Donald James, Robertlee Holley, Tony Jennings, and Roger Stauffer were the boys' representatives on the executive board, which arranged many of the programs. i45l , .

Starting the year with prospects none too good, financially and otherwise, the band has learned many new pieces and played at various school functions. At several of the home football and basketball games the band played stir- ing college songs and added a great deal of zest and glamour to the game. Until this year U. High had always been lacking in that respect, and we were indeed fortunate to have this band for such occasions. When the band was called upon to render an assembly concert, it showed adaptness at classical music and played the works of the great composers in creditable fashion. Judging from the progress the band has made this year, one hesitates in speculating on the broad future possibilites. Gmc hoatna In keeping step with other U. High organizations, the orchestra has made fine progress this past year. This organization has filled a very definite place in school life and is an orchestra of which U. High may well be proud. Several assembly concerts were given by the orchestra and were well received by the students and fac- ulty. Under Mr. Dvorak's direction the orchestra played at the various plays and other functions of the school. Since the orchestra caught the U. High spirit last year, it is impossible to predict the heights to which it will climb in years to come. l47l hl"'Qf 'K Burns, Stubbs, Denton, Svctly, Pritchett, Mamilton, Vlhitcliousc, Dorfmeister, Xwztllenwgaber, Ramsey, Shnntz, Myers, Stroud, WQIICFS, Cade, Sizemore, Warrth- ington, Stevens, Ricks, Miss Webb Qsponsorj, Anders.

Much of the time in Commerce Club meetings was spent learning how to operate various pieces of office equipment. Several speakers were heard during the year, and their speeches were enjoyed by all members of the club. One of the highlights of the year was a trip to Paxton's Typewriter com- pany. Here the group inspected files, adding machines, typewriters, dicta- phones, and many other pieces of ofiice equipment. To gain some practical knowledge of business, the club presented a play, "The Slander Case." As the curtain fell on the last act of the play, the year's activities of the Commerce Club came to a close. Home Economica Climb Cocoa and doughnuts sell well when the proceeds are to go for a worthy purpose. With the proceeds of their sale the home economics girls sent Myrtle Berthlett as a delegate from their club to the state meeting in Quincy. Christmas comes but once a year, so to celebrate the girls had a party. The evening was spent dressing dolls and repairing clothing for unfortunate families. The club adopted a family and sent food, clothing, and toys to make Christmas happier. The high spot of the year was a banquet for the girls and their guests. All cooking and serving was done by the girls under the direction of Miss Tucker and the student teachers. l4Sl lbw. fini, Full:-r, Miller, Harvey, Myers, H. Sizemore, Surrcnsmm, Purrst.

During the first semester, the paper was edited with Lois Fuller at the helm of the staff. For the benefit of the second semester class, the first sem- ester staff was held over, and a system of co-editors was set up, with Harold Hubbard working with Lois as co-editor-in-chief and with William Staker in charge of make-up. At the Champaign press conference in the fall, the staff was represented by the editor. Problems of high school journalism were discussed, and Lois brought back many helpful suggestions from other editors. 'Tha Cflanicm Burning the midnight oil, the six members of the Clarion staff have worked to make a success of the Clarion of 1937. Elected by the senior class as editor-in-chief, Merlin Erdman appointed his assistants, including assistant editor, Roger Stauffer. To Dorothy Ann Taylor went the work of planning page layouts, and the page designs of this book testify to her effort along that line. Betty Scott and Ernest Ellison handled the journalistic end of the book. With co-operation from the I.S.N.U. print shop, Harold Hubbard, business manager, was able to put out this book and at the same time close the books with a balance on the credit side of the ledger. Credit is due Mr. Fletcher and Mr. Dempsey Reid for their helpful advice and aid, and also to the U. High boys' printing class for their work in printing and binding the book. Without their effort, a book of this style would have been impossible. While each staff member struggled with his or her own assignment, Miss Lela Winegarner, yearbook sponsor, ably supervised the general work, giving helpful advice to all. l51l 1 ii mf -Y 3 'KW Ax L, X. .

'lA. Cllula Mighty gridiron warriors, lanky veterans of the hardwood, rangy sluggers of the diamond, and speedy track stars were all thrown together this year in U. High's melting pot of the athletes, the "U" Club. Coach Edwin G. Struck was chosen sponsor when the new club was or- ganized last winter. Mr. Henry Poppen and Mr. Herbert Ivens were honorary members of the club. Although the "U" Club was the baby of the family of U. High clubs, it showed, during the first semester of its existence, what a mighty baby it was. , Soon after the club's organization, it was called upon to sponsor the dis- trict and regional tournaments, handling both in creditable style. By developing a spirit of support for athletic activity, the "U" Club has shown that it has a definite place in school life. ootballll Led by Captain Harold Hubbard, U. High's gridiron warriors weathered a stormy football season with only one setback in nine starts. Trinity, Washington, El Paso, Fairbury, Clinton, and Leroy succumbed to the Green and Gold wave. In the Normal and Bloomington games, U. High outfought and outplayed their opponents, but the breaks were against them, and they were held to ties. Special commendation is due Captain Hubbard, Johnny Blum, and Joe Poplawski, and Coach Struck for his work during the past two years in building up that stellar team. l55l Evans, Horney, Blum, Stauffer, Naumann, Malmbcrg, Erdmann, Turner Hubbard, Peterson, Coach Struck.

High, let's go," You're right. It's a U.High basketball game. Thundering cheers, the throb of feet on the hardwood, and the smack of the basketball all help make the setting complete. Dividing the pair of contests with each Normal and Bloomington and put- ting Trinity down tw7ce put U. High in a three way tie for first in the city league. Losing only one game in the Corn Belt Conference enabled U. High to finish in the top spot over Normal, Fairbury, and Leroy. As the season of 1936 -37 progressed, Coach Struck shifted his lineup con- stantly to keep his sons of swish very much in the thick of things. All the boys saw considerable service before the year was completed. To climax the season, the Green and Gold cagers took the regional cham- pionship by defeating Normal and Bloomington. This made the season one of the most successful in recent years, and is a record of which the school may U " .Squad This year U. High had for the first time a freshman-sophomore basketball team. Their first campaign, which included sixteen games, turned out to be an average season, the younger boys winning and losing an even number of games. Considering that many times the "B" teams, not the freshmen soph- omore teams, of other schools were played, this is a good record. well be proud. Having a freshmen-sophomore team should strengthen future varsities in U. High because of the training the underclassmen can get. Mr. Poppen coaches these boys and: can give full time to them, which is the main factor in turning out a successfull team. i57l -: Hyde, Herr, Kcltner, Lawrence, M.

Poppen, the Green and Gold slug- gers have enjoyed a more successful season than usual. The team, captained by Fred Naumann, lost only to Normal and Lexing- ton and smashed out wins over Leroy twice, Fairbury, Bloomington, and Lexington. Both the hitting and pitching held up remarkably well during the season. With southpaw Dick Guritz as the only hurler, prospects were rather gloomy at the start of the season. However, Dick pulled through in grand style: and with spectaculer hitting by the team and airtight fielding, there was, at the end of the season, a creditable balance on the win side of the ledger. In addition to putting a fine team on the field this year, Coach Poppen has a good nucleus to work with next year. TLCIC iQ U. High's thinly clads surprised even their fondest supporters by pulling through the season with several victories. The biggest upset of all was the second place the boys roped in at the inter-city meet. Melvin Rossiter and Paul Keighn,a newcomer, were among the leaders of the team this year. Captain Lawrence started the seasons fine prospects, but later was laid up with a game leg, a great blow to the Green and Gold hopes. This successful season was due in no small part to the addition of the boys from baseball. The cancelation of the rule restricting an athlete from competing in more than one spring sport brought Stauffer, Blum, and, Hunt out for the track team. If this rule is not put back in force. U. High will probably enjoy track teams such as the school had "way back when." l59l ' . Q :zz .3 .--1 ' V . ' ' 1, , ww r 1 r , A W se.a Q 4 21 R. Ramsey, V. Ramsey, Dabney, M. Blakeman, G.
