Class Sponsor Indispensable to Seniors
We dedicate the 1959 Clarion to Mr. Eckert.
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
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
WELL KNOWN Fell Gate greets almost all of us every

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.

"Man, like this Homecoming was tough as
nails and twice as cool!" ln other words, it
was sharp as marbles and iust as slick. 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.

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

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.

Junior Actors Present
"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.

Ten rehearsals, that's all there were. And,
on top of that . . .
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.

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.

Refinishing the lounge was the main proiect
of this year's Student Council. The room was
entirely redecorated with such improvements and
luxuries as two new doors, a new linoleum floor,
sound-proof ceiling, two painted and two paneled
walls, fifteen new chai rs, two wooden benches,
new curtains, and a iuke box.

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.

Assemblies do break the routine of classes
but not without a very important purpose. 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.

seemingly funny entertainment.
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.

Wayne McCormick gave the invocation which

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
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."

At the i959 Baccalaureate services, Rever-
end Janssen, minister of the Normal Presbyterian
Church and father of Senior Jon Janssen, advised
the seniors to "Claim Your Inheritance."
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.

tinguished members of our faculty wearing

Curriculum Discussion Brought Changes
was mysteriously cancelled.j
At faculty meetings there were discussions
on ways in which U. 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

"But l simply have to go--it's my last
U. High basketball game." And so it goes,
all of the senior year.
Seniors are always silly that way. After
three years of relative unconcern and slap-
happy activity, almost everything becomes dead-
ly serious. Seeing the last football or basketball
game of the season is not a luxury but a ne-
The gaiety of some school occasions is
often suddenly and momentarily marred by a
High-students type of remark.
This year's Senior Class was no different

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
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

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.

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.

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,
r s. 'igagi A
the forty-ninth couple to-enter was crowned in
honor of the forty-ninth state, Alaska. This was
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.
FT: Royal Bartrum gives a "beatnik" appearance on
the sophomore trip to Hannibal, Mo. BELOW: Debbie Hill
and Lynne Hurless threaten to break Ed Miller's nose again.

Freshmen Easily Adapt to High School Life
FRESHMAN CLASS OFFICERS: Lee Rust, preSirlef1fi
Ron Lemme, vice-presidentp Judy Stubblefield, secre-
tary, and Susan Sycle, treasurer.
Starting on Class Night when the incoming
freshmen file into Capen, everyone watches the
freshmen. 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.

The school year of 1958-59 brought some
changes to the U. High band, the most important
being the director. 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
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

with equal ratings at the state contest.
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

Five Seniors Shared in Annual Music Awards
Baker and Jim Evans had the two leads, accom-
panied by the chorus and the two pianists, Royal
Bartrum and Miss Lehr. lt was directed by Mr.
Bauer and Mr. Bradley.
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, orchestra, and choruses.

SECOND SEMESTER editing class for the Clarionefte: Rich Sieg, Jim Ringel, Alec Wade, Elmo

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,

Aside from such problems, producing a
yearbook entails many other details. 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

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,

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

Honor Society Pledges
With a sign and yardstick in one hand and
a sack of candy in the other, this year's pledges
to Honor Society, "having been duly elected,"
began to doubt the honor of Honor Society.
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.

not only at the football and basketball games
but also at noon hour, school time, and after
school pep rallies. Scheduled by the Pep Club
and sparked by student and faculty skits, the
many sessions were all part of the attempt to
increase school spirit.
For the first time at U. High, there were
four frosh-soph dweerleaders finstead of the
usual threei. They were Susan Myers, Patty

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
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.

"Tomorrow's citizens who tackle today'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.
"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.

Bright Spots in Football Season Were Few . . .
As the football season opened in the fall
of l958, it looked as if we finally had a combina-
tion of manpower that could win over all opposi-
tion U. High might have to face.
When the new squad took the field in the
opener against Monticello, the combination began
to click. lt started with Jon Cummings crossing

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.

A tie with Trinity--the first time since

the Saints--and a loss to Pontiac at Homecom-
ing time set the stage for the last victory of the
season, a 13-0 victory over Eureka. 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!

1959 basketball has come and gone, leaving
in its path eight victories and fourteen defeats.
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.

VARSITY SQUAD: Alan Fruin, Jon Cummings, Randy Rust, Tony Spataro, Tom Thompson, Chip McKnight, Pat
Brophy, Jack Ross, John Ackland, Dick Larsen, Jim Ringel, Jim Bowen, Elmo Kistner, Ray Coombs.
. . Search of Right Combination
The seniors who were on the squad and did
equally well are Jim Ringel and John Ackland,
both of whom were elected to the Intercity squad,
Chip McKnight, Elmo Kistner, Jack Ross, and
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. Although last year's team came close in
an overtime, it was the 1959 team that finally
turned the trick.

The i959 track team finished second in the
Corn Belt and placed a strong third in the Inter-
city race, the best finishing record of any spring
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.
JIM RINGEL takes his cut, but the ball is nowhere
