As teacher of math, Mr. Eckert gives of his vitality and intellectual curiosity. His booming voice, his probing questions are aimed at all of his students, his challenges are for every stu- dent's level, leading the quicker into infinity. As co-sponsor of the Class of i959 and of the Student Council, Mr. Eckert exemplified patriotism and faimess. His interest in the 2 school's having a U. S. and a state flag was prevalent throughout the year in Council and finally led the class he sponsored to leave the school money to purchase the flags. Mr. Eckert's desire to reward those who were deserving re- sulted in an impromptu cast and crew party at his house after the Senior Class Play. With respect, gratitude, and affection, we dedicate the l959 Clarion to Mr. Albert Eckert. It Takes ISO Days You sit in class, counting the minutes and the seconds until the bell rings. You say to your friends, "Only eleven hours of school left until Christmas vacation!" And then, suddenly, the days, the hours, and the minutes are gone. School is over, the state-required l80 days you so impatiently counted are gone. ln those l8O days, you saw the end of the redecoroting that had marked the l958 school year. To celebrate the exodus of packing cases, workmen, and litter, Dr. Lovelass and the office staff helped you and everyone else move into those new lockers fthe ones without the dents you and previous occupants kicked in when that combination iust refused to work at alll. How many of those l80 days didn't you go into the new lounge? Almost everyone stopped in every day--first of all to investigate the painters' and carpenters' work, then to dance, to listen to the iuke box, to see who was there, or to get some ice cream or pop. Remember those field trips? Somehow the poker games, the naps, the songs, the talk, and the steady diet of WPEO didn't seem too much like school. But they still did count toward l80. There were all the other events that made up your year from Homecoming to Commencement, from registration and the schedules you filled l l i WELL KNOWN Fell Gate greets almost all of us every day. out to the last day of school and the locker you had to empty. 180 days--it sounded like a long, long time, but it wasn't really. Now they have passed, you are a year older, taking memories and giving Illinois new teachers, whom, as student teachers, you helped to train. TRAMPLING GRASS as they go, U.

There was a difference in procedure this year that proved to be a neat switch. ln place ofthe .lunior Class play, which was given later in the year, a variety show was presented. The show began with a few corny jokes told by Tim Bacon and Tom Doman, the masters of ceremonies. The audience was in a good mood and their enthusiasm could not be dulled by iust one bad joke fmost of them were good, thoughl. Some of the acts during the show were a dance performed by she-devils, a crazy panto- mime to a crazier record of "The Great Pretender" that had the audience howling with roars of laughter fin other words, they thought it was funnyl, a Liberace type piano solo by Royal Bartrum, a monologue of an "l-don't-care-what- you- say-you-only-get-one-good-night-ki ss" girl by Donna Karr, an Ashmore-lrwin rendition of some songs, a senior girls' quartet, and a "Little Red Hooding Ride" reading by Blake Leach.

'Have Pioneer, Will Score' Rated Best Float ballet dance, it can well be said that there was a goodly amount of variety. Other firsts this year were a first place float entered by Miss Alexander's history classes, a spring theme for the Homecoming dance, and a court of six young men and six young ladies instead of the usual three and three. Another change this year was the Queen's car. Where the Queen usually rides in an American monster- size auto and looks lost in the confusion, this THE AUDlENCE enioys refreshments after the variety show. THE PIONEER rocket was the subiect of this float in the Homecoming parade. 7 SHE-DEVILS perform at Homecoming variety show. Homecoming l958 Marked 'Successful' year's Queen rode in a snazzy little foreign iob and looked much more confident and capable of controlling the situation lsuch as iumping out if the car coughedj. After all the confusion was over and teachers became accustomed to the new gray hairs Home- coming gave them, everyone settled down and hit the books. With a few wilted corsages and o torn football game program to remind us of the i958 Homecoming, another round of fall events slipped by. THE LOVELASSES mix with students and alums at dance. Junior Actors Present 'Stardust' "The play's the thing," said Shakespeare. Those members of the Junior Class who were cast in Stardust might have taken issue with Mr. S. over that statement. From the very first rehearsal, the production ofthis play promised to be unusual. The rehearsal was scheduled for 7 p.m. in the speech room. That was fine--except that there was also a debate meeting then in the speech room. Since the cast couldn't get in, they did push-ups in the hall until Mrs. Goehe arrived. The three weeks of rehearsal which followed will be remembered by the cast long after the play itself is forgotten. Jim Wilson knocked down ladders, Jim Ensign, thinking his face was dirty, washed it with a shot-glass of water. Tom Doman unnerved everyone by his continual ad libbing. fHe says, "I really didn't ad lib--l iust changed the lines a little."j Others missed cues, Karen Spafford and Ellen Remsburg never quite got the right timing when Ellen threw a pack of cigarettes to Karen, Carol Rhodus mis- pronounced "modulate" right up to--and includ- ing--the night of the play, and no one seemed able to memorize lines. The play was a success in spite of all this, however, and everyone agreed that Stardust was an unusual and imaginative production.

Well, to begin, Judy Turpin, on whose role the intricate plot depended, had a temperamental voice. The entire cast crossed their fingers and hoped--she couldn't lose her voice, could she? Then, there was the little matter of lines. Judy Vetter and Alec Wade studied up to the very last minute. Their self-confidence iust about evaporated when Chuck Miller learned his three hundred some lines with near-professional aplomb. Marilyn Ashmore had to put on a pair of tights in only three minutes, and all the other sixty some had to remember where to go on stage. Oh, the name of the play? The Skin of our Teeth, by Thornton Wilder. JUDY VETTER orates to the audience, Chuck Miller yawns widely, and Ray Mecherle listens quietly dur- ing the play. IO BLAKE LEACH gazes on Debbie Hill as Judy Kellogg and Karen Efford discuss what to do with the young infant. Seniors Bring Different Not on unusual play in itself, Chodorov's Kind Lady, as produced by the Senior Class, was definitely different for U. High. Mr. Simms, student teacher in speech, directed the play, which told of a kind and gullible lady taken in by an educated and dis- honest young man. The leads were double cast since the play was given two nights. Playing the kind lady were Pat Schuth and Judy Kellogg. Alec Wade and Blake Leach shared the young man's part. Drama to U.

High students out of the Cage until l2:l5 p.m. Other activities of the Council were the Homecoming dance and parade, a very successful assembly which introduced the clothing drive, participation in the intercity Student Council which sponsored their annual dance, intercity visitation day, Freshman Day, and an all-school party at which time next year's Student Council officers were introduced.

Assem- blies provide education as well as entertainment, and help us to lcnow our teachers and classmates. The Senior Class presented the first program and starred in the clothing drive assembly. Educational assemblies included an explanation of fire, a movie about sea voyages, and a talk on Russia. Honor Society and Awards assemblies honored outstanding students. At Christmas The Littlest Angel provided entertainment. Assemblies this year also introduced can- didates for the Homecoming court, for cheerlead- ing, and for Student Council offices.

The "Alaskan Fantasy" theme was carried through by transforming the ballroom of the Student Union into the dead of winter. The frigid atmosphere was soon broken by the music provided by Dale Dungan. ln keeping with the Alaskan theme, the forty-ninth couple to enter was chosen to reign as king and queen of "Alaskan Fantasy."

Officers of the Sophomore Class served as chairmen of the various dance committees. Ball- room and band chaimian was Joe Burger, deco- rations chairman, Sue Myers, tickets chairman, Sue Landgraf, invitations and program chairman, Karen Schiffbauerg and publicity chainnan, Donna Ives. The parents of the sophomore class officers were among the special guests. Because a great amount of time and effort had been spent on decorations, the Class was disappointed when attendance was not what they had expected. l5 Griffith Receives Top Award DR. LOVELASS congratulates Chip McKnight as Chip receives the coveted David Gipson Award. Freshman Day, held May 14, began with registration in the lounge and an introduction to Dr. Lovelass and the Student Council officers for i959-60. Then representatives of U. High clubs told of their groups' activities and plans. U. High musicians entertained the visitors before lunch. ln the afternoon, National Honor Society members took the prospective freshmen on a tour of the campus and to the Awards Assembly. At the assembly Joan Griffith was announced as valedictorian and Karen Efford as salutatorian. Chip McKnight received the David W. Gipson, American Legion, and SAR awards. The Legion, Science, and French awards went to Judy Vetter. Judy Turpin was named DAR winner. Thespians elected Blake Leach "Thespian of the year." The Whitehouse Cup for business education achievement was presented to Carole Gimmestad. Don Thompson received the Monroe Dodge Award for outstanding shop work. ln the field of creative writing, Ellen Rems- burg was selected from the Junior Class for the Williams Cup. Bob Brown, for his high score on the national contest, received the Math Award. U. High representatives to Boys' and Girls' State were Art Bonds, Jon Cummings, Tom Doman, Jes'sie Piper, and Marilyn Koepke. Memberships in Quill and Scroll, national society for high school journalists, went to Karen Efford, Diana Ritchie, and Judys Turpin, Vetter, and Walker. MR.

FUN Best Describes All-School Parties Part of the fun of going to U. High is the social aspect. Even the most studious pupils find an all-school party now and then to be a "big riot" ltranslation: a lot of funl. Entertainment at the parties ranged from dancing to readings, from songs to leg and hula- hoop contests, from skits to iust talking. A party at Cook Hall Cot coursel to acquaint new students with the typical U. High dance, began the informal social year. "The Basket Ball," "Underwater Fantasia," and a party at which Student Council election results were announced fiust before everyone went to Biloxil all came oft successfully. A May dance and the Class Night dance ended the year. ,v CHIP MCKNIGHT, king hula hooper, and Bob Spry watch as Nancy Wilson shows her talent.

Bob Curry, master of ceremonies, introduced Junior Class President Tom Doman, who gave the welcoming speech. Joe Gauss, Senior Class President, replied for the seniors. After the banquet of fish or meat fProm was on Fridayll, Glenn Leonard played a drum solo and Dr. C. A. White, head of the ISNU speech department, spoke. Then at nine o'clock, Prom began! "Dreams Adrift," the theme for the dance was carried out by paper seahorses, fish netting, and a green- haired mermaid gazing into a goldfish filled pond. Committee chairmen for the Prom were Jim Wilson, Bob Curry, Lynne Johnson, Nan Anderson, Arlene Gillett, Ellen Remsburg, and Martha Hunter. After the Prom, Junior Class Sponsor Mr. Almy stated, "lt didn't surprise me that the best iunior class in the history of U. High put on the best Prom." This is a bit biased, perhaps, but l959 Prom-goers agree that "Dreams Adrift" was a wonderful Prom. Seniors Bravely Present Last Program An i890 melodrama, complete with entre-acts, was the Seniors' contribution to Class Night. After a medley of "Gay '9O" songs, a can- can line kicked out onstage and down into the audience, with two dapper fseniorl gentlemen in pursuit. At this time, concessionaires, selling every- thing trom notecards to red hots, descended upon the surprised spectators. Scene one of "The Wicked Wolf and the Wirtuous Woodcutter" followed. Here, accompanied by hisses, sighs, and cheers, the dramatists started the plot going. Assisted by singers, two drunks, and their mother, a temperance speaker next expounded the evils ot liquor. The second and third scenes of "TWWAWW" followed, in which the villain, garbed in long cape and top hat, appeared. A male quartet sang between the two final scenes. ln the finale, the Class marched to the roll of drums and the band's "Stouthearted Men."

Guy Cornwell, Illinois' first assistant super- intendent of public instruction, was the speaker for Commencement. Through his topic, "The Decision ls Yours," he impressed upon the seniors their importance in determining the future. Musical numbers included o vocal solo by Amy Boker and a flute solo by John Johnston. Amy's solo was unexpected--Jim Evans, who was scheduled to sing with Amy, suddenly came down with o throat infection and could not sing. Finally the impatient seniors were awarded their diplomas. Said many seniors at the follow- ing reception, "l just lcnew l'd trip when l went to get my diploma." But nobody did.

As usual, the end of summer means it is time for school to start. Consequently, our teachers abruptly end their vacations, consist- ing mostly of summer working, extra studying, occasional traveling, and little loafing. They must return to reality: nine months of hard work always waiting to be done. Their years of teaching and learning blend into a portion of a lifetime. Yet, each year holds a distinct memory for teachers and stu- dents because of the experiences they share. Led by Dr. Lovelass, Miss Huggins, and Mr. Perry, the faculty guided the student body through another successful year outside, as well as inside, the classroom. Dr. Bone was more than a figurehead to University High students. Whether seen boosting U. High teams at games or shaking each graduates hand, Dr. Bone showed his genuine concern and loyalty for U. High. Perhaps you remember seeing two dis- tinguished members of our faculty wearing green and gold letter iackets and ridiculous little beanies to match while riding in the Home- coming parade or hearing one of our esteemed LEFT: Miss Alexander, Miss Eikenberry, and Miss Hayman relax after helping to initiate the four iuniors into Honor Society.

High's curriculum might be improved. As a result, the summer term brought an additional chemistry course to the school curriculum. The advanced course, designed to be highly challenging and useful, was offered only to students meeting stiff requirements. Along with other changes, there was such an increase in advanced algebra enrollment that it will be necessary to have two sections next year. ln ARTHUR MURRAY and wife Katherine fthe Templetonsi dance at the Prom.

Seeing the last football or basketball game of the season is not a luxury but a ne- cessity. The gaiety of some school occasions is often suddenly and momentarily marred by a gosh-but-this-is-the-last-one-we'll-go-to-as-U. High-students type of remark. This year's Senior Class was no different LEFT: JOE GAUSS,Jim Brown, and Alec Wade present a picture of masculinity f?l on Senior Skip Day at Lake of the Woods. RIGHT: Ken Baker, .loan Griffith, and Bernie Lotta hunt for Mr. Ccrlocks's elusive ghost worms. . . As Senior Class Officers in 'Biggest Year' in these respects from the usual. Sentimental seniors reminisced about their tradition-forming Winter Formal lwhich replaced the traditional Sophomore Assemblyl, the ice cream social that they gave at the end of their iunior year in a last ditch attempt to tatten up the treasury. Ot course, there were the usual class activities-- traditional, but still good for memories--such as the chili supper, the Prom, and the banquet fthere went all that hard-earned moneyll. All this of the past was pushed out ot the seniors' minds, however, as the duties of being seniors pressed harder. There were rehearsals, endless rehearsals, for Class Night, Baccalau- reate, and Commencement. The Class of i959 did more than rehearse and sit around being sentimental. They studied, landing over twenty per cent of their class on the second semester honor roll after having a little under that the first semester. Seniors planned, spending hours with Miss Huggins, catalogs, application blanks, and themselves. Reluctant to end it all, the Senior Class held an unprecedented class picnic on July l2 at Miller Park. JOAN GRIFFITH, Karen Bunn, Judy Turpin, Jill Brewster, and Marcia Hubbard attempt to shave Jim Bowen's legs in the first assembly, which was given by seniors.

NK W. .fig sw if we Q Juniors Think They're Busiest Class of Year "Success doesn't come to the sleeping." And the Juniors were anything but asleep, for the undertakings of the class were successful. The class, under the officers' direction, not only sold concessions at noon and at ball games but also installed ice cream and soft drink machines in the lounge. Thanks to a lot of hard work and in spite of a few faux pas fsuch as ordering twelve cases of taffy apples for the Homecoming game and selling only half of theml, the Juniors earned well over the amount needed to finance the Prom. Sharon Ackland I Nan Anderson - Carol Anderson , 5 April Armstrong Linda Arnold James Ashbrook ' T. lim 1 s , . ' Ji , The Juniors owe part of their success to their sponsor, Dr. Almy. He was always around to help out when he was needed, he even helped sell at the ball games. Junior Class members worked hard in Student Council, made their mark in U. High's sports activities, and participated in many clubs and in contest work. Their scholarship was outstanding. At least ten per cent of the class made the honor roll during every six weeks grading period. if ar A In if 5 , J, 2 Q ff' 4-s ' if f Susan Barford - ' Linda Barnes -. -K 2 Anita Battin at '- ' 3 Michael Bigger J ' 5 :,, at ,e,,1 5 le 1: W .

VS., , ll ' SOPHOMORE CLASS OFFICERS: Joe Barger, president, Karen Schiffbauer, treasurer, Susan Landgraf, secretary and Susan Myers, vice-president, are seen mounting the steps to the Student Union before "Alaskan Fantasy." Sophomores Have Extra Busy Year Sophomores really can't do much tradition- wise as a class. Apparently this year's Sopho- mores didn't care to be placed in inactivity by tradition or anything else, because they broke tradition and, perhaps, made it. For example, the Class decided not to wait until the iunior year--the traditional year-- to choose class rings. instead the Sophomores ordered their rings in the spring and will get them in the fall of their iunior year "when they're still young enough to enioy them." The Class stuck to tradition by giving the Winter Formal--but the theme,'fAlaskan Fantasy," was not the least bit traditional. At the dance, l -fi r s. 'igagi A 'L PIA 42 LE the forty-ninth couple to-enter was crowned in honor of the forty-ninth state, Alaska. This was different! At the Class Night dance the Sophomores took over the traditional task of selling. Here, however, they ran into troubles: the pop cooler had a broken bottle opener. To remedy this, a class member left the dance at Cook Hall, ran to the U. High building, climbed into the locked lounge through the window, and took a bottle opener from an empty pop cooler. If these incidents are typical of the Class of 1961, the next two years will prove to be interesting, to say the least.

The boys in the three upperclasses appraise the freshman girls as could-be dates, and the girls in their classes size up the com- petition. All of U. High view the freshmen boys as possible Student Council presidents, letter- men and David Gipson Award winners. While being watched, the class of I962 did some investigating themselves. Now at the end of the year, the Freshmen not only know each other but also almost everyone else in U. High. Besides electing their officers and spon- soring a party, the Freshmen sleuthed about and cased the Cage and the lounge. As inside men, they investigated U. High's clubs and formed a pressure group in the Council. They were introduced to U. High traditions. One Class Night later, the class moved over to the sophomore section of Capen and started looking at new freshmen.

Mr. Robert Whited replaced Mr. Arden Vance, long time leader of school musicians. Another change was the moving of the band from the basement of Cook Hall to the recently finished concert band room in the Centennial Building, located on the southeast corner of the campus. The room is much larger and has better facilities than the older room in Cook. The band moved to its new location in May, 1959. The marching season found the band parad- ing all over the Twin Cities in its usual black and gold uniforms. The band was named the "best novelty band" at the ISNU Homecoming marching band contest for its show entitled, "The Alaskan Escapade." February found more than half the members of the band preparing for the district music contest, which wash held at Clinton. All the hard practice paid off, though, as twenty-three of them moved on to the state finals by winning superior ratings. Eighteen of these came out LEFT: U. High band players await signal ta march.

They were John Johnston, Jim Wilson, Willis McCord, Walt Peasley, Leonard O'Brian, Dean Kunz, Bruce Hammitt, Harry Menton,Glenn Leonard, Ron Anson, Allyn Lambes, Jim Porter,Willis Sieg, Royal Bartrum, Bard White, and Jack Ross. After the contests, the band went to work preparing for its concert season. It put on two concerts, one in the winter and one in the spring. It also took part in the Annual McLean County Music Festival. After this was over, the band sponsored an all-school party. The band officers for the year were Bill Hammitt, president, Gordon Graves, vice-presi- dent, Harry Menton, secretary, Tom Daman, treas- urer, and Bill Merchant, publicity chairman. The orchestra, directed by Mr. Kuntz, bowed and tooted their way through a successful year. They participated in the annual winter and spring concerts, and went on a field trip to Plainfield in the spring. The chorus,'ably directed by Mr. Bauer, went one better than last year and gave an opera, The Lowland Sea, instead of an operetta. Amy AMY BAKER and Shirley Neeley harmonize.

The entire chorus, made up ol boys', girls', mixed, and a greatly expanded advanced chorus, gave many fine programs during the year. ln addition to the annual winter and spring con- certs, they sang for the Christmas assembly, several Christmas programs, and Baccalaureate. At the district music contest, those receiving superior ratings were Royal Bartrum, piano solo, Jim Evans, vocal solo, Amy Baker and Jim Evans, vocal duet, and a girls' quartet consisting of Nancy Wilson, Marcia Hubbard, Amy Baker, and Diana Ritchie. The superior winners at the state contest were Jim Evans, solo, and Jim Evans and Amy Baker, duet. At the Awards Assembly Mr. Whited announced the following music award winners: Orchestra --John Cade and Amy Baker Chorus --- Amy Baker, Gordon Graves and Jim Evans Band ----------h-- John Johnston A picnic at Forest Park ended the year for the band, orchestra, and choruses.

Students Worked Ardently on Publications ln charge of the surprisingly many details involved in putting out a four page Clarionette for the first semester were Bill Hauskins, Fred Lewis, and Jack Ross, co-editors on features, news, and sports. For the second semester Alec Wade served as editor, Sue Trail, news, Richard Sieg, features, Jim Ringel, sports, Yvonne Gundy and Sandrasue Parsons, copy editors, and Elmo Kistner, circulation manager. At Christmas time, Clarionette editors again sponsored the literary contest. First place winners were Blake Leach, narrative poetry, John Johnston, lyric poetry, Joan Griffith, essay, and Judy Vetter, one-act play and short story.

Prep- arations tor the 1959 Clarion began when the business manager, Fred Lewis, made all the financial decisions regarding the publication of the annual. lt was Fred's iob to secure the Clarion's share of money from the U. High Apportionment Board and to carry on an adver- tising campaign to acquire enough money to publish the annual. When the staff decided upon the theme for the year, "Around the School in 180 Days," the editor, Judy Turpin, planned the entire ABOVE LEFT: Editor-in-chief Judy Turpin and Production Editor Judy Walker look over division pages.

Pooled Efforts in 'Battle Against Details' book, dividing its contents into sections, and allotting pages to all U. High activities. Layout Editor Karen Efford then took over and designed every page in the book. This included determining the type, the number of both pictures and words, and their positions. The iob of planning what type of picture would best tit the allotted areas, of making all the appointments for the taking of pictures, and of then picking the best ones for the book belonged to Diana Ritchie. Judy Vetter, copy editor, was responsible for all the printed matter in the annual except that in the advertising section. It was her task to assign and edit all ofthe copy, to have it all typed, and even to write some of it. Last of all, Production Editor Judy Walker entered the pictures on the paste-up sheets. From here the i959 yearbook finally went to Semco Color Press, which printed the Clarion. Helping the i959 editors throughout the year were their assistants and other staff mem- bers. As the year ended and the yearbook neared completion, the following persons were announced as editors for the 1960 Clarion: Karen Spatford, editor-in-chief, Art Bonds, photography editor, Harriet King, copy editor, Marilyn Koepke, business manager, Sherry Shirley, production editor, and Charlotte Turner, layout editor.

Under New Leaders, Speech Work Boomed This year the speech department was under the direction of Pat Bohn Goehe and Raymond Fischer, both new faculty members. With their help, U. Hidw students presented a series of plays and participated in contest work. The contest play, The Glass Menagerie, plus five individual events won fifth place in the state contest. This rating was chiefly due to the contribution of Blake Leach, who won second place for his original monologue and was chosen for the fifteen-member all-state drama cast. Other state contest winners were John Johnston, fifth in comedy reading, and Barry Johnson, sixth in original oration. The Glass Menagerie cast included Nancy Washburn, Martha Hunter, Kent Deffenbaugh, and Blake Leach. Members of the debate team were Donna Karr, Mac Holzer, Tom Doman, Ken Jackson, and David Steele. The team competed with other high schools, tying with NCH5 for third place in the sectional contest. Heavenly is the only word to describe the Christmas assembly. The setting was heaven fcomplete with golden gates and fleecy clouds, and the characters were angels lcomplete with flowing robes and shining halosi. Sherry Shirley was starred as The Littlest Angel.

Sweeping the halls, cleaning the johns, or picking paper off the study hall floor, the tired pledges plodded through the trying week of initiation. And, after it was over, the now new members settled down to the pleasant thoughts of what they would make the next pledges do. Besides being suffering and then vengeful creatures, Honor Society members are in the upper third of their class and are outstanding in leader- ship, character, and service. They are voted into the Society by their classmates and the faculty and then are announced before the school at the impressive induction service. And, despite the pledges' temporary doubt, Honor Society is regarded as one of the highest honors a student can earn.

V 60 A bunch of ninety-five Romans assembled one April night and threw a "really tough" banquet. In togas, stolas, or tunics fsheetsl, U. High Latin clubbers were, at last, to see "the real thing," instead of the usual reading about it. Actually, this was no ordinary Roman banquet. Along with the usual musicians, there were a mack wedding, a ghost story, and a meal served in typical Roman fashion. Several special meetings, other than those heid regularly under the sponsorship of Miss Connell, were held during the year. Carols were sung in Latin, gifts were exchanged, refreshments were served, and a talk was given on Saturnalia at the annual Christmas party. In May, the club gave a tea to all incoming freshmen in hope of recruiting future members. An important function of Latin Club has been to have students represent U. High in Latin contests. Certificates ofexcellence in the district Latin contest were awarded to Karen Mishler, Latin I, Mary Rasor, Latin I, and Donna Karr, Latin Il. Jim Greer received a certificate of superiority in the district Latin contest and a certificate of excellence in the sectional Latin contest. A certificate of superiority was awarded to Royal Bartrum in the sectional. SHERIAN WILSON reads to members.

YCCI "Tomorrow's citizens who tackle today's problems."That's how the members of U. High's YCCI chapter could be described. The first problem on which this year's group acted was the 1958 Illinois bond issue. YCCI members investigated the issue and distributed information to citizens of Bloomington-Normal. The group's special topic of study for this year was Russia. ln connection with this topic, the group attended two conferences and presented an all-school assembly on Russia. ,.:--f Math Club "l'm not sure, but l got zero . . . You did? Oh, well, let's ask Mr. Carroll." Mathematically inclined students not only solved problems and prepared for the math contest but also planned and enioyed programs onthe use of slide rules, chance in gambling, and the use of math in space travel. At Christmas time, the club relaxed with quadratic equations, spelling Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. And, in May, the club held its annual picnic. Although it wasn't o radical year, it was, claim Math Club members, a positive success.

But from that point on, the season had few bright spots. Bloomington's vaunted running attack rolled over the Pioneers with five touch- downs, and before the squad could recover, Wash- ington and Clinton had added league beatings.

Losses to Normal and Woodland finished the season. While the year was a poor one on the score board, something is always learned. Experience and knowledge were gained and, with the right combination of players, will help a lot in l959. The fans seemed to feel the same way, for their sentiments were, "Well, there's always next year. We'll get 'em then." With some spirit and determination, maybe we can!

When the year started, Coach Dick Haselton, who come from Rock Falls this year, was handicapped by not knowing what each boy's capabilities were. Therefore in the first several games, Mr. Haselton experimented with both his junior and senior boys, trying to find the right combination. Sometimes he used an all-senior team, sometimes an all-junior team, and other times he mixed them. These games were just trial games to see who did the best against competition. About the time this was straightened out, the injuries began to hit the team---sprained ankles, knee injuries, and even the flu. Some combinations would work for a few games, then something would go wrong, and Coach Haselton would have to start all over again. During all the changing of players, many of the underclassmen got their chance to show what they had. Underclassmen who did their share and will be back next year are Jon Cummings, Randy Rust, Tony Spataro, Pat Brophy, Dick Larsen, Ray Coombs, Alan Fruin, and also a sophomore stand- out, Harry Menton.

These boys and Coach Haselton had never worked together before this year. Yet they did something that no other U. High team had done for ten years. They beat Normal Community, 49-47.

The baseball team managed four victories against nine defeats and a fourth place in the Corn Belt standings. For the first time in five years, the golf team failed to take the Corn Belt title. However, the pivotmen did take second in the conference. Tim Stanish, a standout all season, was third in individual scoring for the city, and finished tenth in the state tournament.

And ow It's Done! The last picture pasted, the final lines of copy written, the 1959 Clarion was sent off to Semco Color Press where it went through a transition from Cl dummy book to the bound masterpiece which is now before your eyes. In all seriousness, the staff and I had a lot of fun and worry producing the annual. The hours after school and the days after school dismissed for the summer represent fifteen months of work put in by the 1959 staff. I would now like to express my gratitude to all those who made this book possible. First, my thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Mullins, representatives of Semco Color Press, who kept in contact with me during the year and to the Semco staff for their fine work. I am also grateful for Camera Craft's help in taking individual pictures and in supplying photographic materials. To the Clarion staff, whom I only directed, I would like to say thank you. The staff and I wish to express our appreciation to Mr. Templeton, the yearbook advisor, for all his help. Finally, to you, the U. High students, I ioin the other editors in saying we hope this annual will help you recall what happened "Around the School in the 180 Days" that made up 1959.
