JKABEL D. YQJCKETTS
During our four years of high
school life, as a class and as individ-
uals, we have been ever aware of the
kindly interest of Miss Ricketts. This
interest has been manifested by her
faithfulness, by her unremitting ef-
forts to keep before us the high ideals
of our school, and by her willing and
eager support in helping us to pro-
mote all extra-curricular activities.
Because of her helpful counsel to the
students and because of her efforts
to develop the spirit of Urbana High,
we, the class of 1931, dedicate the
Rosemary to Miss Ricketts, thereby
expressing our sincere appreciation
Ye who love a nation s legend
Love the ballads of a people

Call to us to pause and lzsten
Speak tn tones so plazn and chzldlzke
Sfarcely can the ear dzstznguzsh
Whether they are sung or spoken,

To thzs Song of Hzawathal

On December 14, 1931, Urbana High
School sufTered an irreparable loss in the
death of its beloved principal, Mr. C. VV.
Rice. ln his passing, the school has lost a
most efficient director, and the students a
loyal and lovable friend. During the five
years that he was principal at Urbana High,
Mr. Rice came into close Contact with many
lives which were benefited by his influence.
His friends among the students are count-
less. and he wasiheld in high regard by

Margaret Louise Knotts, a member of the
class of 1931, after having been intermit-
tently ill since early childhood, and having
fought off this illness with indomitable cour-
age time after time, finally became too Weak
to resist longer and passed away December
12, 1930. Her death has left a. vacancy in
the hearts 31161 lives of her associates, who,
during the many years of companionship
With her in school formed associations which
will forever remain in our memories.

On the following page will be found the names of some of the more active
seniors, together with the quotation selected for each. On account of the long list
ot activities in which these seniors engaged, it was impossible to include both
the quotations and activity lists on the page with their pictures. In previous
issues ot The Rosemary it has been customary to omit the quotations for the more
prominent seniors and to group their pictures and activity lists. on the Hrst two
pages. But this year all the seniors' pictures are arranged alphabetically, and
so we have adopted this method to include all the senior quotations.

"Rosemary, that 's for remembrance."
Since that is the title so appropriately given to our year book, it seems fit-
ting for the theme of our farewell message. The old familiar halls, the building,
the teachers, the students, the activities-all these things are now only a chap-
ter in our life. In later years when we leaf through the connotations of the past,
these pictures will flash across our minds like some exhilarating stimulant, bring-
ing back pleasant memories.
This is the last time we will rightly be able to call ourselves students of Ur-
bana High. Every year since starting to school we have left behind us one more
stepping stone in the path of education. Each succeeding rank left us stronger
and better fitted to bridge the gap to the next one. Now we End ourselves ready
to make a great advance. For some of us it is a plunge into the sea of life, for
others only a step into the complicated machinery of some university.
These last four years have printed one of the most important chapters of
our life. In the course of routine and study here we have formed friendships
that are true and dear to us. We have acquired habits that will never desert us.
Some of these habits will determine in part our destinies during the remaining
years of our lives. Through various activities, we have experienced lessons that
will help us solve the many diilicult problems of coming crises.
We feel competent and ready to push out into deeper water, but not with-
out a tinge of regret at parting from these friendly halls. We all have high
ideals and ambitions to attain. We aspire to develope strong and noble charac-
ters 5 to become worthy citizens of our country 5 and to serve as models for other
classes and another generation.
We wish to extend to the members of the faculty and the school board our
deepest appreciation for their help and sincere efforts during our stay in Urbana
These things and better have bee11 said before and will be echoed by others
following down the trail that we pursue. Words are hollow tribute to our pas-
sage. Actions only speak. We look behind at the things accomplished and ahead
at tasks still waiting to be done. In order that we might fulfill our share of these
duties to the best of our ability
Let us do our work as well,
Both the unseen and the seen 5
Make the house where gods may dwell
Beautiful, entire, and clean.
Else our lives are incomplete,
Standing in these walls of Time,
Broken stairways, where the feet
Stumble as they seek to climb.
Build today, then, strong and sure,
With a firm and ample base,
And ascending and secure
Shall tomorrow find its place.
'Z' T' 'PET' ? T 'S'
We, the members of the class of 1931, extend to you a sincere welcome to
share with us the thrills of this evening. We realize that you are fully as in-
terested in this occasion as we are, and we deeply appreciate that interest.
As we sit for the last time on this platform many thoughts are racing
through our minds. Memories and visions of twelve school years crowd into our
consciousness, while we are also permitting our imaginations to take short flights
into the future. Shall we attempt a brief analysis of these hurrying thoughts
Most of us doubtless feel some sense of relief that these twelve years of
schooling are completed. We know that for a large number of us school has been
dismissed permanently, while, for us all, tonight marks the end of compulsory
education covering two-thirds of our lives. Even though we realize that there is
work ahead, we can pause to draw a long breath now.
But this feeling of relief is quickly submerged by the sense of satisfaction
which comes with the successful completion of a difhcult task. To have graduated
is no mean achievement, but many of us have accomplished things in other lines
than merely our lessons. Some have gone out for athletics and have won the
coveted UU" while helping to bring glory to our school. Others have engaged
in various activities, such as work on the school publications, the Echo and Rose-
mary, some have devoted their efforts to the musical organizations, While a num-
ber of courageous souls have indulged in dramatics, oratory or debate. Whatever
our field of endeavor, we feel a justifiable pride in whatever success has been
Our analysis of our minds this evening reveals still another feeling-that
of sharp sorrow to think that the associations and activities of these years are
ended. VVe know that nothing can ever take their place. We have played and
worked together, We have met and learned to know the members of the faculty
as friends as well as teachers. Tonight we are one, a class, a unit, we have many
common interests as students of Urbana High. Tomorrow we shall be parted,
scattered never to unite again, our interests will lead us afar, each to his own
destiny. lt is this realization that brings a tear to our eye and a lump in our
throat. We know, for you, our parents and friends, have told us so, that these
years just past will prove for many of us the happiest of our lives.
As we think of these things we are conscious of yet another feeling-that
of gratitude to those who have made these opportunities available. The tax
payers, our parents, and those citizens who have helped in so many ways are
remembered with appreciation tonight.
We have received liberally at your hands, and tonight we feel, more strongly
than ever before, a sense of responsibility-a responsibility to go out and dis-
charge life duties as worthy representatives of our splendid school and com-
munity. To Urbana we owe much, and we are determined to pay our debt.
Finally, the analysis of our minds discovers a trace of ambition and hope
for the future. We do not feel that we have reached the pinnacle of achievement
tonight. Rather do we realize that these years of formal education have been
merely a preparation for what is ahead. We shall never be content to cease
striving upward in whatever paths our feet may be planted.
We are, then, relieved, we are proud, we are sad, we are grateful, we are
hopeful. With these mingled emotions we again say from our hearts, "Welcome
to our graduation exercises."

tWith Apology to H. W. Longfellowj
In the Village of Urbana,
In the la11d of maize and oatiields,
Stood a Wigwam built for learning,
Stood a Wigwam strong and mighty.
And within this mighty wigwam,
Dwelt four tribes of learned people,
And their chieftain was a stranger,
From the distant land of Penlield,
Strong of build and full of sinew,
He, a ruler wise and trusty.
But the Senior tribe was strongest,
Wisest in all lore and learning,
Bravest in all skill and cunning.
From the lips of Irving Seely,
Called he all his tribe together,
Counted every man and woman,
One and seventy people had he,
Eighty fair and ninety swarthy.
Twenty tons of limb and body.
Thus again cried Irving Seely
In the warm and pleasant summer:
"We are crowded, O my people!
In this lodge of brick and mortar,
Let us seek for greater glory
In the kingdom of the West Wind,
In the land of the Illini."
Then they gathered all around him
First the tallest-Richard Fulmer,
And the small ones-Burt and Susan,
Then the oldest-Cook and Oliver.
Came the fairest-Betsy Bilsborrow,
Lovely as a water lily.
And the modest 'Lizabeth Koller,
Shyer than a silver heron,
Then the popular Frances Baldwin,
Loved the faces of the athletes,
Knew their names and also secrets-
Called them "Dutchy" and his rivals.
Then the orator, Olin Browder,
And the very strong man, Villars,
And John Barth, the fleetest runner,
And the warriors, Root and Dixon,
Spake with native tongues together,
Talking much, and much designing,
How this Senior tribe might prosper.
All the wise squaws of the Seniors,
Glad were they to travel westward,
Brilliant as the sun was Catherine,
Just as glimmering Helen Russell,
Deep and quiet as the waters
Are the maidens Jean and Mildred,
Just as deep and just as kindly,
Johnston, Spear, and Betty Rowland.
Then spoke up Eugenia Freemon,
Winner of a silver trophy:
"Go not forth, O clan of Seniors,
To the kingdom of the West Wind,
Till we have a feast together,
Till we sing and dance together."
From the lips of Robert Bowditch,
Came a clarion, shrill and treble,
"Calling all the sweet musicians,
To the pow wow of the people."
Came the flutist-Bob Hieronymus,
With the French horn, William Scovill,
With the saxophone, Gene Weisiger,
With the trombone, Robert Marshall,
And the trumpeters, Smith and Karlton.
Then at last from out the shadows
Came the lovely dancing maidens,
Lytle, Gourley, Pierce, and German,
And the restless Patsy Busey,
With her moods of sun and shadow,
And the laughing Corky Lowman,
With her smiles and sighs of longing,
And the slender Maryellen
With her tresses, fair and silken.
Then he called upon the singers,
"Sing to us, O Newlin Morgan,
That the feast may be more joyous."
And the gentle Orian Lemen,
Sang us songs of love and mercy.
Then the maidens, Fairchild, Fletcher,
Gave us music soft and pleading,
And the tall and stately Katharine
Sang a song of our departure.
And the Seniors sadly listened,
For they knew that on tomorrow
They must journey to the West Wind,
To the home of the Illini.
Then the little Carolyn Riley
With her paints of many colors,
And the artist, Connie Oakwood,
With her brushes and her pencils,
And the sketcher, Rose McCoWn,
With her scroll and roll of parchment,
Sat they down before the camp fire,
Drew the lovely dancing maidens,
Sketched the faces of the warriors,
Painted figures, painted symbols,
Representing the statistics
Of the class of one-nine-three-one.
In the doorway of the wigwam,
Stood Miss Ricketts, kind and faithful,
She the leader, oldest, wisest,
She the friend of all the classes.
And her voice shook with its sorrow,
"Farewell, O my laughing Seniors,
My best wish I give unto you,
May God-speed be ever with you."
Then the councilor, Van Kennedy,
Spake aloud and spake in this wise:
"We are going, O our leader,
On a long and great adventure,
But three tribes we leave behind us-
Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior.
In your charge and care we leave them,
See that never harm comes near them,
Teach them ways of truth and goodness,
Show them paths of love and beauty,
So they, too, may journey onward,
To the land of true success."

accustomed to their new surroundings. With inspired and loyal feeling they
burst forth in their "lusty little voices" with the strains of their newly learned
school song "Orange and Black." Eagerly they join the various organizations,

As the curtain rises on the second act, these same students feel themselves
a very distinct part of Urbana High School ready to play another important
part in their educational careers. The gay scenes of this act consist of hops,
parties, sports, and other good times. In the midst of these activities, exams
approach and many are exclaiming: " 'Tis true, 'tis pity, and pity 'tis, 'tis
true," while others look longingly at the teacher, saying: "Heaven that I had
thy head." This act closes with the presentation of t'The Mikado" in which
they are well represented. .

SENIOR CLASS WILL
Amo11g the documents brought to light after the departure of the class of
1931 was this last will and testament. What a document it turned out to bel
Who would have suspected that such treasures were so carefully hoarded away
by the various members of the class? The document was in the rough-await-
ing, I suppose,the hand of a master lawyer. Hark ye! to the hoarded treasure.
We, the Seniors of Urbana High School, being of sound and disposing mind,
and with peace and charity for all the world, do hereby declare this our last will
a11d testament on this day, June 12, in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine
hundred and thirty-one.
To the Juniors we leave our best wishes for a successful last year with the
hope that they will still retain their humble attitude and remember that they
are "just children" in Senior English.
To the Sophomores we will our excess knowledge with the request that they
will forever leave our initials which we have so laboriously carved on the desks
as a source of inspiration in their hours of need, which no doubt will be many.
To the Freshmen we pass on the encouraging thought that three short years
ago we were but freshmen, that there is still hope, that they too, if they strive
diligently, may attain the heights of wisdom and maturity we have gained.
To Mr. Hadden and Miss Ricketts we leave our thanks and hopes that they
may in the future boast of another class as wise as ours.
To Mr. Hallam, one geometry quiz book with all the solutions and answers.
To Buck Schroth, two detective stories to read to his sixth hour Economics
To Miss Eyerley, two ways to look cross without cracking a smile.
To Lew Stephens, a spool of thread and a needle with which to sew the
pocket on his football pants.
To Miss Biedermann, a book entitled, "Poetry to Be Memorized at the Age
of Seventeen and Enjoyed at the Age of Seventy-Five."
To Mr. Tilbury, a pair of roller skates to save him many a tiresome walk
to the office.
The following personal bequests are made to various students:

SENIOR CLASS PROPI-IECY
The presses were clanging noisily. An
exasperated editor was storming at a
tardy reporter. Said reporter looked fa-
miliar. Why, I did know him. He was
one of my old school mates, John Hatch.
tAt least, he wasn't asking Miss Ricketts
for an excuse, this time.J I was going
to speak to him, but the editor' looked
formidable, so I passed into the city edi-
As I opened the door marked "Lowell
Villars, Private," the sound of clicking
typewriters assailed me, but I braved the
din and made my way to his desk. He
was storming. "Look at this!" he yelled,
as he waved the morning edition of a
newspaper dated June 10, 1941, in my
I looked. The headlines told me the
whole sordid story. GANGLAND'S KING
MAKES CONFESSION. I read on.
"One-Lamp Louie Catoni, Chicago's
second Capone, has confessed to charges
entered against him and has been sen-
tenced to life imprisonment in the Bald-
"One day as Mr. Catoni was chatting
with the Police Commissioner, Robert
Hieronymus, Miss Frances Baldwin, chief
executive of the Baldwin penitentiary,
entered the room. Upon seeing her, Ca-
toni completely lost his acquired poise,
and, forgetting time and place, threw
himself at her knees, saying he was Gor-
don Faulkner, former resident of Ur-
bana, Illinois, and if she would listen to
his pleas he would reform and become a

break of dawn, concentrated their efforts
on securing all the dandelions within
their area, later taking them to a west-

of the flowers were sold at greatly re-

were forced into bankruptcy because of
their inability to compete with such cut-
"Too, in the dead of night, these

before I had embarked for Paris, I
learned of a hold-up at the Palais d'Ar-

thither to investigate. During the course
of the investigation, I learned that Mar-
garet Johnston, the famous woman
racketeer, was in charge of the liquor
traffic of aforesaid night-club, and that
Malcolm Bantz was the manager of the
establishment. Maxine Armstrong, a well
known settlement worker, has been try-

Also, before I left to take my boat, I
had the pleasure of meeting the charm-
ing hostess of the club, Miss Helen Rus-

me a personal introduction to their
dancer of world fame, Frances Mary
Gourley. Soon after I left for Paris.
Upon my arrival there I received a no-

correspondence office at once. I did so,

complete charge of this department. My

'Q' 'S' 'E'
Full many a legend hath been told
About this hatchet, wondrous old,
Full many a song has found its way
From olden times to the present day,
Telling whence this emblem cameg
And every tale has added fame
And interest to its mystic name.
But careful research bared the truth
Of ancient years to the present youth
And truth is stranger far, you know,
Than all the hectic tales which grow
In fertile minds, or man-made plot-
Imagined tales, with mystery fraught,
But we shall tell you whence 'twas got,
And how it came to Urbana High,
In those olden days, so long gone by,
Before the white man came to dwell
In Champaign County, histories tell,
The wandering tribes of Kickapoo
And Miami Indians lived her-e toog
The Pottawatomies set their tent,
Returned to hunt the moose and deer
Abounding on the prairies here,
Before Urbana was a town.
They brought their people, settled down,
And built their tents near Main and Race
Where Davis' grocery grows space.
A little further down the hill
There bubbled forth, their thirst to still,
A spring of water, clear and cold,
A comfort to these warriors bold.
'Tis near this old historic spot
That C. N. Clark had a business lot.
When first the whit-e man hither came
With thought this Indian land to tame,
The red men of the Kickapoo,
And all the other Indians, too,
Bore keen resentment, then they swore
That they of sleep would have no more
'Till they had driven every man
Of white blood out of this, their land.
The Indian Chief, Chicagou, strove
In vaing the white man throve.
He throve in spite of trials severe
While ever dangers hovered near
From every hostile Indian band
Who treachery against him planned.
Then, when Chicagou saw at last
There was no doubt, the die was castg
The white man must be made a friend,
The struggles, fighting, all must end
If the tribes of Illinois
Were to live and not to die.
He gathered his chiefs together then
And bade them bring both women and
To meet the white man near this spring.
With Indian chant and tom-tom's beat
The ceremony was complete.
They buried a hatchet as a sign of peace,
And they promised all their Wars to
They kept their word, and as time passed
Urbana grew to be a town.
The schools were formedg the high
Was added as the system grew,
One day-We do not know the year-
So cannot tell it to you here-
Some senior lads from Urbana High
Stopped at the spring as they passed by
To quench their thirst. One kicked the
And heard a hard and ringing sound.
Then they one and all would see
VVhat this amazing thing might be
That, buried beneath the hard earth's
Responded thus to his gentle thrust.
They dug it forth and brought to light
The very hatchet you see tonight-
Chicagou's hatchet, ancient, old,
Whose legend hath just now been told.
They made it a mascot for their class,
And decided it should onward pass
To each senior class as it came in line,
And so it has, to this very time.
But each class must prove its right to it
By showing forth its power of wit,
In mental contest, strong and bold,
But not with weapons as of old.
The classes meet by proxy: I
From the Senior class do cry
Upon this stage to produce- their man
To answer in person for his class,
Before, to them this hatchet may pass.

JUNIOR TRIBAL TITTERINGS
Frank and his parents had been living out West because the Winters in Illi-
nois were too severe for his mother. Spring, when Florists gathered flowers for
Fiore wreathes, was here now and they were ready to start back to the home
state. Frank was much pleased for on the way they were to take an auto trip
through the mountains and would doubtless encounter many Savage Rebnwn.
The next day the weather was fine. The Dodge car was covered on all sides
with baggage and camping equipment. The family was packed in tightly and
loaded down with boxes and bags. The car swung out of the driveway and down
W ooleridge drive. They had gone about five miles when Frank's mother sud-
denly remembered that- the folding cots had been left in the back yard, so the
Dodge was turned around and the Smith family started back to get the cots and
then prepared to start over again.
They were finally on their way. A beautiful trip lay ahead of them. They
rounded many dangerous mountain curves and each time they had to honk the
That night they stayed in a tourist camp in a Sehaede pine grove.
The next. morning Frank rose early to inspect the surrounding forests and
mountain streams. While on this Tramp he saw in the distance a Griesel bear.
He was much excited but was afraid to go closer for he had heard that they were
very fierce. He walked on and soon he met an old friend of his by the name of
James Scott. They had a great talk, since they had been parted for so long. The
two families were together the greater part of the morning. At noon they
started in their respective directions.
That afternoon as they wound around the mountain roads and had just
gone up a Long Hill and around a sharp turn they encountered a band of fierce
Indians. Mrs. Smith was very frightened fearing they would be held up so she
put her diamond ring quickly into her mouth. When she found out the Indians
didn 't mean to rob them, she was so surprised she choked on her ring. Frank
said, "Wykojt', mother?" Then she explained her reason for coughing. Sur-
rounding the car, the Indians took the Smiths prisoners and led them before
Chief Hollingsworth in the camp nearby. He sentenced them to remain in the
camp for two weeks and during that time they were to help him LaSell his furs
to the white men. They also had orders to obey all the commands of Scribe Ed-
wards. Wrather than have to stay longer they did this. Frank was very glad of
the chance to be in the Indian camp. As he was thirsty, he went immediately to
the Greenwell nearby to get a drink. It was dry so he ran to the Coldwell where
he was greatly refreshed with cool sparkling water. While he was doing this,
Mr. Smith asked the Scribe where he could keep the car. "Just Parker under
that treef' she said.
Soon night came and they were forced to sleep in Stefffy little wigwams. The
members of the tribe had better dwellings than these, with Wilton rugs and
Morris chairs in them. They ate Fruit from Silver dishes while the Smiths had
to eat from Corlfery ones.
In the morning Frank went exploring around the camp. He liked it very
much. He enjoyed listening to the call of the Robbins. While wandering around,
he heard a Russell behind him and turning around he saw a very beautiful Pea-
cock with a. handsome spreading tail. On the left he saw five Banta, chickens
eating Kerns of corn and a turkey which said, "Goble, Gentile." He decided
that this must be like a real farm.
Frank played with the little Indian boys. They showed him how to play a
new game with a Ball and Cord. Then he showed them how to make a miniature
bb A :En :En A A
Ferris wheel. After tl1ey had Dunne this, they ran races over the Lee, through
the Blaisdell and across the Green and Brown fields. The Indian boys won for
they were good runners as well as W walkers. Frank went wading along with the
Indian boys and when' he had finished he couldn't find his other Sh.1H7Ll1wf6 so l1e
had to go to the Schumacher and have another made. They were trying to decide
what to do next, when the Porter blew the Srafmahorn which was a signal to all
Young Indians to come running. The Porter sent them to the Miller to get Moore
Hour for the cook who Sears the meat. The Miller was an old German named
After the Smiths had been there for sometime and the novelty of the camp
had worn off, Frank was wishing they could leave. One reason for this was that
there were no Heaters in the wigzwams, the nights were chilly, and they were al-
lowed very few blankets. Another reason was that they didn 't get much to eat
and had to work a great deal. As Frank expressed it, his stomach was as empty
as Mother H11bbar1I's cupboard. He thought heid Dey if he couldn't leave soon.
His father said, 'tNever Dyson." The only time he ever got enough to eat was
when the Hatter gave water Mullens to all the boys.
When the two weeks were up they were released and after finishing thc
journey with little excitement, they arrived home safely.
We've lingered here for three long' years,
VVith lots of work and lots of pleasure,
Witl1 much of worry mixed with fears,
And just a little bit of leisure.
We 've learned to love each little nook,
Know each mark upon the wall,
And yet we know it 's in the book
That sometime we must leave it all.
We 've had much fun along the way,
For work well done is naught but fun,
And we've had ever time for play
As the months and years have run.
Ah! this old school has earned a place,
Within each junior 's happy heart,-
A nook no other can replacc,--
But in a year we must depart.
As seniors we shall work and strive
To make our school life better yet,
To make the best in us survive,-
A year we never can forget.

SOPHOMORE TRIBAL TITTE RINGS
On the Braurnfielrls of Kimpel resided a tribe known as the Sophomore.
They were Good Indians, Harmon no one unless unrighteously molested. They
carried on trade with Byers of nearby towns. The 'l'owners always gave them a
good Price for their articles. The price was not paid in money as it is today but
they exchanged certain articles for clothing from the village Taylorg for apples
from the Applemang and for tl1e Miller-'s Hour which was made at the old Mill.
In return the Indians offered Hays, asparagus Tipps, Cole, and frequently tl1e
boys would a B1'rd.seIl.
The chief of this tribe was Srhriber. He liked nothing better than to in-
spect the Newman brought in from no Mansfield after a war. Some would be
seriously injured but the one who could stand the 1l10St Payne would be given
The main event. was the evening meal. The Shepherd would watch the chief's
flock and each Knight would bring in a. lamb to the cook who Sears and roasts
it. Every two Weeks everyone in camp would have a feast. On this event. tl1e
chief's Singer would sing Z-lllfl pound on a drum which hung on the Wall of the
chief's wigwam. His singing sounded more like a SC'hfI'Ilfdl from a coyote. After
the feast they would hold a contest to see who was the best Ryder. Most gener-
ally a Young warrior would win. Ball was played and races were run where
they would run with their faces covered with a H ood.
Wlieii there were no wars the men would Slack and the women did all of the
work about the Place. The men would rest on Sehaede banks of Brooks midst
Bowers of flowers just in Bloom. Dailey a small group would Tramp for Miles
to hunt Bruno the bear. A Waggoner would go with them to Wheeler back to
camp where Moore would offer their Servifs in skinning the animal. Although
they had little responsibility it was necessary for someone each day to go to the
Hutton tl1e Ilill where they could see Bufefield and surrounding territory. In
this way they could protect themselves from other invading tribes. Though they
feared 110 other tribes someone might Frame up on them so their motto was
Safety first. A Barker would announce all events just as we would do today.
The chief had a Iflairchild, Goutgler, who was madly in love with the Young
warrior, Raclebaugh. Now this young Radebangh didn 't. care two '4Indian
whoops" for her. In vai11 she tried to win his manly affections but she made no
Gaines for he was a woman hater. He was a very accomplished man. He could
live on raw meat for a monthg he could shoot an arrow at the rate of ten rods a
minuteg he could run faster than the Cochran of the wind blowing down a can-
yon, he could whoop so loud that the very beasts would growl with envy. He
was the sovereign of maidens' hearts and the object of the jealous rage of all
other Indian warriors such Oehmlfe, twin warriors Keller, Loreht, Hinrlinan,
llarfzrey, a11d Hamilton.
One day Gongler was tripping in the meadow picking daisies. A daisy she
took in her hand and plucked each petal while murmuring softly to herself,
" He loves me, he loves me not." Suddenly the earth reverberated with a mighty
tremor, and as she turned, she -saw a herd of buffaloes. stampeding down the
Glenfly toward her. She shook in l1er very moccasins with fear. There was no
hope of escape. The oncoming herd was too close for her to run to the sheltering
Now strolling through the woods was handsome Raclebaugh, returning from
l1is morning dip. He noticed little Goufgler in the meadow and the stampeding
animals. His keen intellect took in the situation at a glance. He snatched his
W Hi y T T ? ? ? ? Q
bow and arrow, and taking a quick but accurate aim, he let fly the arrow, which
struck the very heart of the leader of the herd who fell at little Gougler's feet.
The natural instinct of the animals made the herd divide and go around the body
of their leader. Thus little Gougler was saved.
After the herd had passed he ran to her to see if she had been injured. Not
a. hair of her head had been touched. Poor child-how frightened she was. Then
Radebarugh realized what a dear little thing she was and that it was she and she
alone that he loved. When he looked into her beautiful blue eyes he knew that
she was his.
Together they crossed the meadow to the camp where they immediately
sought her father 's wigwam. They told him of their engagement and he rejoiced
when he learned the news. To make certain their decision he asked Radebaugh,
'4For her would you Dyson?" He answered without hesitation. "Yes, Durst
you ask me such a questiontlll It was decided that Gougler would give as her
dower, East Brumfield, a section of Wifngfielrl and the Greenwell Wigwam, that
they were to have the Hatter as a servant and Captive DeTurlf as Porierg that
the groom would wear the family Buckles on his shoes at the wedding. For their
wedding gift the chief said he would give them a Tudor Ford sedan.
Though glad for such a union the chief shed tears at the loss of l1is Ward.
He gave them his blessing. We trust that they lived happily ever after.
We 've been in school now just two years,
We 've had a lot of pleasures,
Perhaps for teachers we've made tears
But tears are always treasures.
With two more years to tinish in
And much more fun before us,
Perhaps more stunt shows we can win
And enter Zeigfield's Chorus.
Our boys have made good records
On gridiron, track or field,
They hold our victory banner high,
Our laurels they will shield.
Our girls have been good backers,
They have followed all our teams,
In fact we have no slackers
We 're a dandy class it seems.
With half our school days over
And as many more to go,
We ,ll keep our f'33" in clover
With the motto "Always grow."

FRESHMAN TRIBAL TITTERINGS
It was in Lelllay, 1787. James and his papa and mama had reached the end
of their long journey. Their old Ford, with no Heater, wheezed its way around
the corner of Kimberlin mountain into La,Valle which had been recommended
to them. "A Hoy,', Seth James' papa, "here is an ideal place to make our resi-
dence. He then put up a shelter for the night intending to complete camp the
With J ames' papa had come a larger party, the rest having stopped farther
up the road for the night. All of them were Easterners. and had come out here
to set up claims in this laValle which was supposed to be rich in Ztnlf. It was
indeed a queer group that had come all this way together. Among them was a
Good Bishop named Tate, a Merchant named Mengis, a Taylor, several Millers,
a Cooper, a Burgess named Van Deventer, and Germans named Hesselsohwerdt,
Gerhardt, Swearingen, Stranch and Heganbart. There was also a Gaylord named
Galbraith, a bolshevist Balispy who had a long Beaird, a Booker called Beals, a
Port-man named Percival who always wore a big Buckle on his coat. Then there
was a Smith, a Miner, an unusual chap named Thompson, a descendant of the
owner of the famous chain-restaurant founder and several Scotchmen, McCloud,
MeFall, McCown and McLaughlin. However, there was a. Dearth. of Irishmen,
there being only one Hogans, one Corhery and an 0'Donnell.
Several weeks later our friends having found their Havens and being set-
tled in the valley decide to go exploring up the old mountain. Mr. Scott, James,
might go along, for during this time his son had learned to use the bow and
arrow quite well and had captured quite a few wild animals. So James thought
that if he could Sell their furs he would make money.
At last the Day came when they were to go. They arose with the sun and
got an early start. Their path led them through a Schaede Wood. A Martin
overhead sang a Carroll, and here and there was an open space, prairie-like in
appearance but thick with Bnrr and Mar-berry. After crossing a Longmlre they
reached an elevation where they could look down into laValle below. Here they
saw Green Fields and a little brook with its Moss-covered banks on which grew
many a Rose. In the distance was a Lalcey, which they named Kinzer. Now and
then they stopped to rest and eat Dunlap apples and Hnrsey bars with nuts
Prestin. The candy made them thirsty but as there were no Wells they could get
In the meantime James was very much attracted by some frisky Gray
squirrels which were .Baslfen Neer and chased them in and out among the trees.
To he frank he was so interested in them that he failed to notice how far away
he was from his companions. The older men, being tired, overlooked the dis-
appearance of the Y onng boy.
Suddenly James missed the party. He called and called but received no
answer. He was glad that he had his gun with him but received a Schools when
he discovered that his Gufndloek was broken. Though it seemed hopeless he
started out to find shelter for it was getting late. Soon he heard some Cox crow-
ing and down an incline in front of him on the farthest edge of an open space,
he saw a group of buildings. Coming closer he saw that they were Barrlcks, but
did not know until later that it was an Indian Camp. He was greeted by a group
of Small Indian boys, playing Ball, who eyed him curiously. Although a brave
lad, the little white boy 's heart beat fast at the sight of the Redman. One little
boy, whose dog was a great Barker, came running towards him with a war-
whoop. This brought the rest of the Indians, while here and there James saw a
head thrust from the door of a Barrick.
Though frightened, he attempted to tell one of the warriors what had hap-
pened to him. The Indian failed to understand, but to his surprise he took
James by the hand and led him to the door of the Chief's Barrick. One of the
Indians called and Chief Carson came forth in such Riggs as you never did see.
He was followed by l1is scribe IVI00l'lHl'Il and pccunia Browder. James was very
much worried for fear the Indians would scalp him or hold l1im for Ransom. It
was some time before he could make them understand what was wrong and that
he wanted to go back to his people.
At last the Chief got it Wright and they decided that Scout Pflnglnaelzer
was to take him back to his own camp which was 'on the other side of the moun-
tain. But first Chief Carson, being sociably inclined, and proud of his long
Swedish ancestry, introduced James to all of his sons. They were Anderson,
Apperson, Carson, Empsoen, Hudson, Johnsons, Nelson, Olliverson, Robinson,
Simpson, Williamson, and three Wilsons.
It. was a mighty happy little boy that was delivered to his mother late that
evening though the Redman had been good to him.

1 Q 1
What events of our high school days will we remem-
ber longest--the HA" we made in Latin, the HE" we
received in history, or the team's touchdown against
Duane Purvis and his Mattoon warriors? It is only
through the media of high school athletics that school
spirit manifests itself to the greatest degree. And behind
the scene of the big games and athletic events lies the
everyday work of training the individual athlete.
In this way. and to a great degree, the coaches are
responsible for the spirit of the school, as well as that of
the teams and individual players. Urbana has bee11 for-
tunate in its selection of leaders in athletics, and through
them it has become a respected opponent among the
schools of central Illinois, especially the Big Twelve Con-
Coach Stephens, in his six years at Urbana High
School, has won a reputation as a leader capable of de-
veloping the flPiQ1'1lllllkll'l01'l and fighting spirit of his
teams. Of equal importance to our school has been Mr.
Stephens' interest in and encouragement of underclass-
men in athletics. Steve 's football teams have always been
thoroughly trained as is exemplified by their frequent
Sri-1 1' Hass,
.i victories over Big Twelve teams, and even more so by
their successful competition with the best that other con-
' terenees have to offer.
Even though not such a popular sport, track de-
mands more time and effort on the part of the coach than
is usually appreciated. The variety of events requires the
training of competitors in each of the many phases of a
meet. Surely tl1e life of a coach is a busy o11e. and Coach
Stephens well deserves the credit given him as a very suc-
cessful leader in athletics of all branches.
Buck Schroth has been Stevc's assistant for live
years. He scouted teams that were to compete with Ur-
bana later in the season, and reported their plays and
ability. He coached reserve football and basketball teams
and assisted in track. Besides this, he always willingly
responded with his t'sales talks" when called upon to
support the different activities. He will always be re-
membered for his peppy, loyal speeches delivered in our
assemblies before our big games.
Our athletics have been greatly aided by the as-
sistance of Wyman Eccles, the Junior football and
basketball coach, by Clark Root who coached swimming,
and by Clyde Hallam, the baseball coach.

URBANA 12, TAYLORVILLE 7
Playing on one of the hottest days of the season, the Urbana High football
team opened the 1930 season with a 12 to 7 victory over Taylorville. To start
the game Urbana kicked off to Taylorville, and Taylorville on the very first
play fumbled the ball. Urbana recovered on the S-yard line. Portman carried
the ball through right tackle and scored the first touchdown. Urbana tried a
place kick but it went wide. The first touchdown and Taylorville's lone counter
came as results of breaks. The second score for Urbana made by Portman, how-
ever, was earned. This touchdown was made in the second quarter. The ,QT-ll1'16
resulted in a duel between Portman and Hall of Taylorville, All-State halfback.

quarter Rex of Decatur took the ball on a lateral pass and ran 60 yards down the
sidelines for a touchdown. .ln the second quarter Urbana retaliated. Root out
through right tackle for a gain of 30 yards. Then alternating' between Port-
man and Amerman, the trio advanced the ball to Decatur 's 4-yard line. At this
point Decatur called time out to gather its defense together. On the first play
Urbana was stopped by a determined li11e. But on the second play Root scored
through center. Each team had another opportunity to score but the opposing
lines held. The second half became a punting duel, neither team scoring.

Urbana defeated Benton, 6 to U, and avenged a 7 to 6 defeat, received at
the hands of the Benton team last year in a night game. During' the first three
quarters neither team scored and fortune changed throughout the game pretty
much as the wind shifted. lu the last of the fourth quarter, Benton punted
and an Urbana man crashed through the line and blocked it. The ball was re-
eovered hy Schumacher for Urbana on Benton ls 12-yard line. Portman tried

Urbana's speedy offense was too bewildering for Bloom's ponderous line.
Bloom made the Hrst touchdown early in the first quarter, but failed to make
the extra point. To start the second period the Bloom punter made a poor
kick which went out of bounds on his 30-yard line. In the next play Portman
gained 15 yards. Bloom was penalized 15 yards which placed the ball on the 1-
yard line. The Bloom line held for the first three downs but Hatch hurled
across center for the score on the fourth down. Later in the second quarter Ur-
bana began a steady march down the field which resulted in another touchdown.

URBANA 7, PEKIN 13
Urbana suffered the first defeat of the season from the strong Pekin team.
Pekin made the first score early in the game, on its passing' attack. Urbana
scored as a result of a punt in which Amerman ran back to the Pekin team 's 30-
yard linc. On the next play Portman circled around end for 25 yards. Then
Amerman drove through the line for the scoring touchdown. In the try for
the extra point, Edgar Root 's place kick hit the bar and bounded over. It
looked as if Urbana might win the game by this one point, but later Pekin
scored again. Urbana fumbled on Pekin 's 30-yard line. In the next six plays
the Pekin eleven forced the ball over the goal line for the winning touchdown.

URBANA 0, PEORIA CENTRAL 6
Urbana High received a heart breaking defeat from Peoria Central. For
three entire quarters both teams were held scoreless, and it looked as it the game
would end with a 0 to 0 tie. But in the last quarter one of the Urbana boys
fumbled on his own 18-yard line. An alert Peoria end recovered the ball. On
the next play Peoria completed a pass for a gain of 14 yards. The Urbana line
stiffened and for three downs held Peoria for no gain. But on an intricate triple
pass Peoria Central scored the needed touchdown. Van Dusen Kennedy, Pete
Walclrriii, and John Hatch did some outstanding blocking and tackling in the
Urbana li11e. Ralph W3ltlFOll7S punting stopped several Peoria attacks.

the squad for himself this season by
four years ofrconsistent hard labor.
He played end and other positions
in the line. His determination was
always a real inspiration to his team
UR-BANA 20, DANVILLE 6
The Urbana eleven received a decided surprise at the little resistance the Dan
ville team had to offer. Urbana had very little trouble in opening holes in Dan-
villels defense. It took only six minutes to score the first touchdown. Root
attempted a drop kick after the first touchdown for the extra point but it was
no good. Kenneth Thomas crossed the line for the second score after another
long march down the field. Root's pass to Faulkner was completed for the extra
point. The game was so one-sided that it lacked excitement. The only thrill
furnished by Danville was when Archie, the star halfback, cut. through the
Urbana line, reversed his field, and galloped 61 yards for the lone Maroon score.

RESERVE FOOTBALL SQUAD
The Reserve football team playing against regular reserve squads from
other teams came through the season with fair results. The team played St.
Joe, Decatur Reserves, Roosevelt, John Hill of Decatur, and Rantoul and Won
a majority of the games. The team was composed mainly of under-elassmen.
It was difficult to keep a consistent line-up, because as soon as a player im-
proved he was moved up to the varsity squad. Next year many of these boys
will be on the varsity team. The reserves were coached by Oliver Langhorst
from the University.
URBANA 12, MATTOON 12
A iigrliting and inspired Urbana eleven gained a tie with the undefeated
lllattoon team, 12 to 12. No scoring was done until the second half when
Mattoon passed over the goal line. ln the fourth quarter, Purvis while at-
tempting' to punt on the fourth down was tackled on l1is own 20-yard line. Rey-
nolds and Thomas took the ball to the one-foot line and then Thomas plunged
over for the touchdown, tying the score. Urbana scored agrain on Purvis' fumble.
But in the last few minutes Mattoon passed its way down the Held for another
URBANA 0, CHAMPAIGN 0
Three time-s Urbana threatened to seore and three times Cha1npaign's line
held them back. Urhanals first opportunity came early in the game when
Champaign fumbled on her own 5-yard line. Urbana recovered but couldn't
advance the ball past the six-inch line. Then again Urbana. blocked a kick which
put her in position to score, but both the line plays and end runs failed. The
third opportunity came when after a hard march Urbana reached the 10-yard
line. But an incomplete pass on the fourth down ended all the scoring hopes
for either team.

Rantoul made the first score in the game with a. field goal and two free
throws. Curly Hamilton and Don Dixon both scored soon after with two
baskets. But Rantoul made about two field goals to Urbana's one throughout
the game. Urbana seemed unable to make its many tries for baskets good.
The Junior squad completed a successful season by winning seventeen out

Urbana changed tactics and flashed down the floor for one basket after another.
The Sophomore squad had a rather poor season. The team was greatly
handicapped because it lacked tall players. Games were played with Longview,
Onarga, Tolono, Johns-Hill, Champaign Ponies, and Centennial. This team was
coached by Sehroth, and when the boys are taller they will be good material
for the Varsity.

Irving Seely was very close to be-
ing a regular. He substituted as
guard in almost every game. Be-
cause he was an excellent dribbler
and had an uncanny eye for long
baskets, he was sent in either to stall
or to shoot.
John Fuzak was only a Junior, but
he was a valuable substitute. He was
on the Junior squad at first, but be-
cause of his ability he was moved to
the Varsity. He played any position
and was good on pushing in re-

The Freshmen had a strong team this year. They lost only two games,
one to Centennial and the other to "The River Rats." The first team consisted
of Tates, E. Hanes, Simpson, Bland, and Apperson. This was the best Fresh-

The first quarter was slow, ending 1-1. In the second Root scored, then
Danville made two shots. But Dixon tied the score with a push-in. Two free
throws by Danville and five points for Urbana made the score 10-8. In the
last quarter with Danville ahead 12-11, Root tossed a free throw as the gun went
off. In the second overtime, Root again made a free throw to win the game 13-12.
URBANA 28, CHAMPAIGN 17
Champaign started with a rush and scored four points before a minute was
up. After a short time out Urbana came back strong. Faulkner and Root
made field goals to tie the score. In the second quarter Hamilton batted in a
short one and followed it with another soon after. In the second half Urbana
played a waiting game and then changed to a flashy attack which piled up
points to win the game.
URBANA 11, DECATUR 20
The play in the first quarter was evenly matched and it ended 3-2, Decatur.
To start. the second quarter Decatur made an easy one. Faulkner and Hamilton
both scored on fouls, and Fulmer put Urbana into the lead 6-5 for the one and
only time during the game, when he pushed in a rebound of Hamilton 's. During
the rest of the game Decatur piled up points and then played keep-away.
More than one hundred boys turned out for the intramural basketball tour-
nament. Every boy had a chance to play on one of the sixteen teams at some
time or other. '4Barrick's Bricks" won the championship by defeating
"Mitchell's Monkeys" in the final game, 25-24. The players on the winning side
were Marvin Schaede, Paul Barricks, Nathan Cole, Charles Anderson, Frank
Stapp, and Jessie Field.
'iReynold's Rats" were the winners of the consolation tournament this
year. The team included George Phillips, Bud Schroyer, Milton Johnson, Keith
Reynolds, and Harold Cates. A Home-Room tournament was held this year
for the first time. This gave every boy in school a chance to play. Miss
Rompel's room won. The team was made up of Irving Seely, Keith Reynolds,
Charles Smith, Edgar Root, and Steve Romine.

Fulmer sent Urbana off to a flying start when he dribbled in for a short
shot. Faulkner added a one-handed shot and Dixon pushed in a rebounder be-
fore the quarter ended, 6-0. Champaign made two free throws but baskets by
Fulmer, Root, and Faulkner, and two free throws by Dixon gave Urbana 14 at
the half. In the second half Urbana substitutes had little difficulty in scoring.
URBANA 28, MATTOON 15
Urbana scored the first basket soon after the opening tipoff and was lead-
ing 8 to 2 at the end of the first quarter. From then on Urbana had an easy
time of it and wasn't threatened once. Dixon sunk seven field goals and three
free throws besides playing a marvelous floor game at center. Urbana played
like an inspired team, making its own breaks and taking advantage of every one.
The Urbana High School basketball team participated in the Pontiac In-
vitational Tournament during the holiday season. We played our Erst game
with Sauneman. Our second team played the entire last half and we gained
an easy victory over the opponents. Urbana took an early lead in the Spring-
field game and held it the first half but Springfield finally defeated us by the
score of 21-19.
THE DISTRICT TOURNAMENT
The District Tournament held this year at St. Joe was won for the second
successive time by Urbana. We opened the tournament with St. Joe defeating
them in a hard fought battle by the score of 29 to 15.
The second game was played against Homer. Urbana won with a rather
close score of 19 to 13. The greater part of the first and second games was
played by our second team, the varsity team played only a few minutes in
order to give them practice for the semi-finals.
In the semi-finals Urbana defeated Sidney by a score of 27 to 6. The first
team gained a good lead during the first half of the game and that lead was held
to the end of the game by the second team which was put in during the third
The final game was won from Fisher by a score of thirty-six to fourteen.
Urbana took the lead in the first quarter and held it easily until the final whistle.
The Urbana boys showed good form throughout the whole tournament, and
proved by their easy but effective handling of the ball that they deserved to
win. At the time it was held we had one of the most severe snowstorms of the
winter, but even this did not keep a large Urbana delegation from attending
The Sectional Tournament was held this year at Danville. Due to the fact
that the floor in the Danville Armory was very slick, there were lots of bad
passes and many shots were missed.
Urbana met Monticello in the first game of the tournament. Monticello
was reputed to be very strong after their victory over Champaign at the Dis-
trict Tournament, the week before. We had a hard time getting a lead over
our opponents, but late in the second quarter we took a slight lead and steadily
increased it in the second half so that the score waws 28-15 at the final whistle.
The second game of the tournament was played with Rantoul. Rantoul
scored continuously in the last few minutes of play and defeated us by the

SUMMARY OF TRACK SEASON
Urbana enjoyed a most successful season on the track, winning the dual
meet with Champaign, the Conference, the District, and placing third in the
State. Although missing the services of Terwilliger, Knight, Ralph Seely and
Russell, heavy point winners of last year, Steve was able to develop new talent
to take their places, although not in the same events.
It is the system of always having a bunch of nnderclassmen coming on that
contributes as much as any other factor to Urbana's success in all branches of
athletics. This year every winner of a track letter is a Senior, but it is safe to
predict that next year will find a group of athletes ready to carry on the win-
Already signs of budding talent may be discerned in such men as Simpson,
Amerman, Zink, Smith, Thomas, Waldron, Wertz, Schriber, the Hanes brothers,
Shroyer, Browder, Elam, Schumacher, Mehnert, Penell and others. If these
boys will stick at the job and practice diligently they will be able to step into
the shoes of Portman, Barth, Seely, Faulkner, and Root next year and bring
accustomed honors to Urbana High.

Urbana High School 's track team opened the 1931 season on April 11 with
a decisive victory over her ancient rival, Champaign. The score was 81 1X3 to
35 2f3, Urbana. winning nine of the thirteen events, and picking up enough
second and third places to pile up the impressive total. Crain Portman showed
promise of the splendid record he made later in the season by winning both
dashes and the broad jump, making him high point winner for the day. Dutch
Faulkner was a double winner, taking first in both hurdle races. Irving Seely
added eleven points with a victory in the pole vault and a second place in the
broad jump and the high jump. Don Dixon and John Barth also contributed
eight points each, Don Winning the high jump and placing second in the mile,
while John won the quarter and picked up a second place in the hundred yard
dash. Other point winners were Schumacher who won the javelin throw, Amer-
man with a third in the javelin and half mile, Thomas with his second in the
quarter, Sinnott with a second in the shot, Simpson with a second in the discus
and a third in the shot, and Smith with second in the pole vault. The best marks
of the day were hung up by Portman in the dashes and Seely in the pole vault,
Crain stepping the hundred in 10 3f10 seconds, while Seely vaulted 11 feet six
inches. This meet concluded the dual competition between Champaign and Ur-
bana for the year. The Thanksgiving Day football game resulted in a 0 to 0
deadlock, Urbana won the two basketball games, while Champaign triumphed
in the two swimming meets. The winning of this meet clearly gave Urbana the
edge in the year's athletic competition.

Mattoon, Danville, and Champaign were met in a meet consisting of six

and Schumacher the javelin throw. Mattoon proved the strongest in the field
In the Ottawa meet Urbana won second in two relays, the quarter and the
half mile, being defeated in both races by the team from Maine Township High
School of DesPlaines. Both races were run by the same team, composed of

placed second in the broad jump while Irving tied for third in the pole vault.

Gordon Faulkner was a hurdler-
and a good one. He usually won
first in the lows and frequently took
the highs as well. Besides contri-

races, "Dutchy" was a member of

throughout the season, seeming to

BIG TWELVE MEET
Urbana won its fifth Big Twelve track meet in seven years and set four new
records at Springfield, May 2, compiling- a total of 29 points to nose out Peoria
Central by two points. Although he was probably aided by the wind, Crain
Portman stepped a truly sensational hundred in 9.7 seconds and the 220 in 21.2
seconds. Irving Seely established the only field record of the meet, when he
vaulted 11 feet 10521 inches to win that event. The fourth record was set by the
half mile relay team-Barth, Root, Faulkner, Portman-when it lowered the
old record of 1 :34.2, set by Urbana in 1926, to 1 :30.6. This was the final event
of the meet and enabled Urbana to overcome the two point lead which Peoria
Central enjoyed. Faulkner and Root with a second and third in the low hurdles,
Barth with a fourth in the quarter, and Portman with a second in the broad
jump were the other Urbana point winners. It was a great day for Urbana.

On a water soaked track, which made record breaking performance difii-
cult, Urbana completely outclassed the teams from twenty-one other towns to
their fifth district championship in the past six years.

for Urbana was done entirely by six boys, and here is the way
they did it. Portman contributed ten points to the total when he led the 'field to
the tape in the 100-yard dash, being timed in 10.1 seconds, and when he again
stepped away from his competitors in the 220.
John Barth captured the quarter mile in the good time of 50 seconds, add-
ing tive more to Urbana 's total score. Gordon Faulkner was forced to give all
he had to win the 220-yard low hurdles, while his team-mate, Edgar Root, placed
third. John Amerman also contributed three points with a third place in the
As was expected Irving Seely won the pole vault easily. The height of his
winning vault was 10 feet, 10 inches, the slippery condition of the runway
handicapping the performers. To complete the day the relay team won iirst
place. The quartet was composed of Barth, Faulkner, Root, and Portman.
The winning of the district meet made the Urbana team eligible to com-
pete in the State Interscholastic the following Saturday.
STATE INTERASCHOLASTIC MEET
Urbana's five-man track team entered the state meet virtually unheralded,
but emerged a close third, having made the best showing of any down-state team
in recent years. First honors went to Oak Park with 17 points, Maine Town-
ship High took second place with 1415 points, and Urbana was a strong third
with an even 14 hard won markers.
As in previous meets, Crain Portman accumulated the bulk of the score,
winning the 100-yard dash and placing a close second in the 220. A strong wind
slowed the runners, but did not make the competition any less keen. Portman
had to beat Herman of Oak Park, winner of both dashes at Stagg 's national
meet last year, but he proved equal to the task.
Irving Seely earned 392 points by tieing for first in the pole vault with
three other boys, the bar being at 11 feet 11 inches when they finished.
The relay team, composed as usual of Barth, Root, Faulkner, and Portman,
earned the other two points for Urbana, placing fourth. Barth did not draw a
good position in the quarter and was forced to run around a number of other
runners on the turn, finishing just too far back to count on the score.
Urbana fans are congratulating themselves that Crain Portman left Maine
Township High School to enroll at Urbana this year. Last year he made a real
reputation for himself and upheld it this season.

Last year all but one of the varsity swimmers were graduated. This left
a rather weak and inexperienced team.
This year 's team had a heavier schedule than usual, competing in six dual
meets and the Conference meet, while in previous years Urbana has only swum
in four dual mets and the Conference.
The team consisted mainly of underclassmen. This fact makes future possi-
bilities for Urbana swimming teams quite hopeful.
Urbana met Danville for the first meet and received a decisive defeat. Dan-
ville invariably has a strong team and always ranks first or second in the Con-
ference. Swimming is considered a major sport at Danville and the high school
includes a beautiful pool. Urbana competed against Danville later in the season
and lost again.

Urbana completed an undefeated season. Golf is coming into prominence more
and more at Urbana, and it is hoped that in the near future it will rank up
among the other sports.
The Urbana team was fortunate in having the Urbana Country Club course
for practice. Several of the meets were held here and the Urbana golfers easily
underscored their opponents. The two veteran players on the team were Elton
Hill and John Barr. The new team elected John Barr as captain, and he has
proved a good leader.
The four regular players who participated in every meet were John Barr,
Elton Hill, Edwin Hodges, and Clem Gerhardt. They had no regular coach this
year. but seemed to get along pretty well without one.
Urbana inet Champaign in its first inateh on April 15, winning by a score of
9 to 3. A few days later they again defeated the Maroon quartet, SW to ISM.
Danville was outplayed by the same score on April 18th. The Lincoln team
proved no inatch at all for our sharp shooters, the score being Urbana 10, Lin-
coln 1. On April 29th our boys once more trounced Danville by the same score
as before, 81fg to 31fg.
ln the District Meet Gerhardt qualified and went on to place ninth in the
State, a very creditable showing, considering that he was playing against boys
from Chicago who have played inany courses.
Each of the four boys composing the teain played good golf all season. VVhile
nobody broke par. they were all playing in the 80's about every match, which is
good enough golf to make most of the regular golf bugs of the country envious.
No matter how good the opposition was, it seemed that the Urbana lads could
muster enough skill to win when it was necessary.

The annual girls' basketball tournament was begun on November 18 this
year. The tournament was of the Round Robin type, each class team playing
two games with each of the other teams.
The first game played was between the Juniors and
Sophomores. Wilma Brown, Frances Portman, Eleanor
Nixon, Myrna Kuster, Pauline Floro, and Mary Elizabeth
Blaisdell made up the Junior team. The Sophomore lineup
consisted of Mae Prevette, Jeanette Weelzs, Ruth Sinnott,
Ruth Cogdal, Josephine Bennett, and Betty Knight. The
game was close and the final score was 24 to 20 in favor of the
Juniors. The Senior-Freshman game was a close contest and
the final score was Seniors 17, Freshmen 15. The personnel
of the Senior team consisted of Vtlilma Rankin, Helen Russell,
0,,,,taf,, Catherine Hesselschwerdt, Juanita Bell, Josephine McAuley,
and Corabel Lowman. Those on the Freshman team were Mar-
jorie Stephens, Charlotte VVeeks, Cecelia Sandwell, Rhoda Collins, Dolores Royer,
Marjorie Portman, June Mershimer, and Marjory Zink. In the Seniors' second
game they received an upset from the Sophomores and the resulting score was
Sophomores 17, Seniors 11. 'ln the Junior-Freshman game the Freshmen beat
the Juniors 20 to 12. The Seniors won over the Juniors by one point with a score
22 to 21, and also beat the Freshmen by one point, the score being 17 to 16. In
the Seniors, other two games, they were victorious over the Sophomores, 28 to 10
and over the Juniors, 26 to The Seniors lost only one game while the other
teams lost two or more. This gave the championship to the Seniors.

winter volleyball was introduced. The games were interrupted by other ac-
tivities but the girls enjoyed a successful season. Miss Brow-

deal, showing them ways of playing that were very useful
and clever. This year a very unusual thing happened-the
freshmen won the tournament. They had an exceptionally

factors in their successful playing. They kept the ball in the

Volleyball proved to be a thrilling and interesting game to the many girls
who participated in it even though they were new at it. The freshmen had al-
ready had some experience in volleyball at Thornburn. The seniors had perhaps
the best team next to the freshmen. They might have won the tournament with
a little more experience at playing volleyball. The same senior girls that dis-
tinguished themselves in basketball played on the volleyball team. The spirit to
win dominated every team and each girl knew that for her team to be a success
she must be alert at all times. The games were played at night so that more girls
could take part.

THE APRIL PAGEANT
The annual pageant, sponsored by the Girls' Athletic Association, was
held on April 17, in the Urbana High School auditorium. The pageant was
entitled "The Golden Agew based on Marmion's poem, 4'Legend of Cupid and
Psyche" and was divided into six epic episodes: The Wratli of Venus, Meeting
of Cupid and Psyche, The Seed of Mistrust Sown, The Ordeals of Psyche, The
Underworld Adventure, and Cupid's Petition Before Jove.
Psyche, daughter of the king and queen of Lusinia, excelled all other earth
maidens and even the goddess of Love and Beauty, Venus, in beauty and
grace. This aroused the anger of Venus, who commanded her son, Cupid,
to strike Psyche. Cupid, instead, also fell under Psyche's power. His love for
the earth maiden, however, resulted in dire consequences, and he finally humbled
himself before the throne of -love and sought to have Psyche immortalized.
The queen of the pageant, Catherine Hesselschwerdt, was elected by pop-
ular vote. Psyche was played by Patricia Busey, and Cupid by Oretha Pierce.
Other leads were played by Roberta Elvis, Josephine Bennett, Maryellen Rade-
baugh, Bernice Coffman, Elinore Nixon, Edna Sanders, and Corabel Lowman.
Many girls participated in the group dances.
The production was under the direction of Miss Marian Brownell and Miss
Lorene Lair. Due to their unremitting efforts and the cooperation of those
taking part the pageant was a success.
Charles Anderson, Max Meadows, Katherine Smith, Martha Roney, Eliza-
beth Comstock, Ivan Crawford, and Charles Moore served on the scenery and
The pianists were Jean Gougler, Marjorie Stephens, Doris Vance, Wilina
Brown, and Miss Lair.
Costume committee: Mary Current and Rachel Smith. Advertising: Eliza-
beth Koller. Program: Madelene Cates.
The ushers were Marjorie Prucha, Lola Fairchild, Madelene Cates, Myrna
Kuster, lrene Rebman, Mary Current, Thelma Empson, Maxine Davis, Edna

Towncr, and Rosemary Caldwell.
Our annual pageant has always been held in May and called the May Fete,
but this year it was decided to have it in April so other athletic events could be
held in May.

The Echo this year was in danger of
being discontinued clue to financial diffi-
culties. But after two vigorous campaigns
sponsored by the staff, the students re-
sponded by loyally supporting the paper.
lt was necessary to secure more student
subscriptions than usual this year because
of the scarcity of advertising.

semester but because of poor health she

to the Echo this year but they made many improvements. All the solicitors de-

On September 23. 1930 each home room selected a representative for the
Urbana High School Student Council. The President and Vice-President of the
, -lunior and Senior classes are members of the Council. Offi-
cers elected for the year were:
President ............ Van Dusen Kennedy
Vice-President .............. Irving Seely
Secretary ........... N ..... Marie Hogans
Treasurer .............. Gordon Faulkner
During the week of November 10-14, the Council spon-
sored Book VVeek. Committees were appointed to take charge
y of the books donated. The purpose of this drive was to get
better books for the High School new library. The six
VAN D"SPfffKENNE1'Y1 special assemblies which everyone enjoyed were also the rc-
PN3"lU"t sponsihilities of the Student Council.
The duties of Council members are to do at all times whatever is possible to
improve and aid the school. They also explain to their home rooms for the benefit
of new students the meaning, purpose, and work of the organization.
The second semester, Magazine Week was sponsored by the Council, under
the splendid guidance of our advisers. Every member thoroughly enjoyed taking
part in this activity. They only hope that the future Council representatives get
as much pleasure and interest from their work as the 1930-31 members.
Miss Ricketts, the faculty adviser, was very helpful.

ton, Paul Simpson, Bob Bowditch, Pete Waldron, Fred Gib-
son, John Hatch, John Amerman, David Mitchell, Ralph
VValdron, Crane Portman, Bob Schumacher, Thurman Sears,
and Keith Reynolds. The two boys who won their letters in basketball were John
Fuzak, and Dick Fulmer. The initiation of these new football and basketball
lettermen took place in a lonely spot several miles from town. It was an occasion
that the boys will long remember. After the initiation a large bonfire was made
and a supper of marshmallows and wicners was served.
The annual dance which is always a very popular event easily lived up to
its reputation. Music was furnished by Jack Kreanier's orchestra. All of the
decorations and work was done by members of the club.

students and new members were initiated. The oath was
given by the Pro Consul. After the business part was over,
the social period began. The club nieinbers were entertained
with bunco or bridge. Surprise gifts were given out by the
Pro Consul of the club.
During the second semester, the club put on a very interesting and instruc-
tive projcct. Slides were shown which gave the Latin students the opportunity
to see the ainuseinents, home, dress, and social life of the Romans. Also, studies
about the life of Virgil were given.
An assembly was held celebrating Virgil's two thousandth birthday. This

grams for the regular meetings and social entertainments. i
Programs have been quite varied this year. French plays GEORGE GLADDING'
were studied and translated. "Rosalie," a French play, was Pm"dC"t
translated and presented by some of the members. At another meeting Christine
Buchholz, who spent last year in Paris told of some of her experiences. She told
something about French customs, dress, and manner of living as compared to
ours. Group singing proved to be entertaining in French as well as in English.
Club members feel that the aims of the organization have been fulfilled.
They understand and appreciate the French language more than they would
just in class.

The Girl Scouts though few in number form one of the most worth while
organizations at Urbana High School. The officers for this year were:
Captain ..................... Miss Wood y
Lieutenant ............... Dorothy Miller
Robin Hood ................ Orian Lemen
Scribe ................. Gertrude VVheeler
Vilhat higher goal could be set by any group of girls than
the development of character and pursuit of happiness? The
Girl Scouts have this for their goal and are always striving
toward it. At their meetings, instruction has been given to
help them to live up to their motto, 4'Be Prepared," and to
be of help in the home and to the community.
The Girl Scouts, through wholesome recreation in the OMAN LEMEN'
outdoors have learned many of the secrets of nature and the
principles of good sportsmanship. Miss Miller, the lieutenant, instructed the
girls in archery and a contest was held in the spring.
Most of the girls have worked this year and expect to receive Merit badges
at the Court of Awards in May. Mary Cady was presented with the Letter of
Connnendation and both she and Orian Lemen expect to be Eagle Scouts soon.
Miss Vilood, a member of the high school faculty, was the Captain, so called
in Scout language, otherwise known as adviser. Miss VVood, although a new
member of the facility and new to the students, has adapted herself very Well to
the group of girls. She has worked diligently with the scouts and they found
her a very good adviser.

At the meetings, speeches of interest to the agriculture
students were delivered by Mr. Rice, Mr. Nolan, Mr. Rucker, and by men from
the department of agriculture at the University of Illinois. Many of the meet-
ings wcre followed by athletic hours.
During the year, the club sponsored an oyster supper, Father, Mother, and
Son Banquet, and a Wiener roast.
A great part of the success of the organization was due to the efforts of thc
advisers, Mr. Lawrence, Mr. Reddy, and several University students who served
as practice teachers.
lt is hoped that next year's classes will carry on the movement that has been
developed by these students and that the Ag Club will prosper and grow stronger
each year just as other student organizations have done.

The Girls' Honorary Swimming Club was organized a few years ago and
has been one of the active organizations of Urbana High. The officers of the
club were elected at the beginning of the term. They were:
President ............... Corabel Lowman
Secretary ................. Wilma Rankin
The Lorelei derived its name from a myth concerning a
German mermaid by that name who enchanted all of the sea-
men by her beauty and singing. While sitting on the steep
banks of the Rhine River, she would comb her golden hair
and sing to the seamen. The seamen, overcome, would try to
climb the steep banks and failing in this would fall back into .
The emblem of the club is a mermaid in the shape of a
"U" and is given to each member upon her admittance to
the club. A member must be able to meet the following requirements: swim five
lengths of the poolg one surface diveq bob ten timesg three divesg three strokes
for formg and four practices. They must make a passing grade of 85.

Music is one of the most beautiful ways of bringing pleasure both to those
who take part in rendering it and to those who listen. The curriculum at Urbana
offers classes in band, orchestra, glee clubs, and music ap-
l preciation. All these organizations have varied libraries and
Urbana has always been fortunate in obtaining excellent
music directors. This year Captain G. T. Overgard was
superintendent of music in Urbana schools. Captain Over-
gard directed the band, orchestra, and girls' glee club. Mr. F.
M. Vierow taught music appreciation and directed the boys'
glee club and mixed chorus. Captain Overgard and Mr.
l Vierow have devoted a great deal of time and effort to mak-
m,,TA,N 0,.ER,,Am,. ing our music at Urbana better as well as more enjoyable.
nz.,-an This year was a busy one for all connected with the music
department. The band gave a series of concerts before the
contest and gave an out of town concert. The orchestra played for Parent-
Teachers meetings and plays. Glee club members sang for school and town pro-
grams. Instrumental and vocal ensembles furnished music on various occasions.
Although Urbana's musical organizations have been organized more re-
cently than those in most Illinois high schools, they are up to the standard set
by the others. In competition of all kinds we have won honors and established
a name for our school musically. The programs and special music furnished by
students in music activities deserve commendation and Urbana is proud of her
work along this line.
One of the earliest means of expression was through drama. Primitive races
enjoyed acting out events of their everyday life and adding ceremony to festivi-
ties by dramatic presentations.
Today. drama has become one of the foremost develop- l
ments of the high school extra curricular activities. The old
appeal has grown stronger and our modern audiences
thoroughly enjoy the comedies, tragedies, and satires realis-
tically presented by our high school dramatics classes.
Students who have taken part in plays have had good
training which was received in an enjoyable way. Stage and
property workers have also had valuable experience.
The plays presented this year offered a wide variety. The
Junior play, "The Mummy and the Mumpsgj' was a comedy, MKS. HAMILTON'
directed by Miss Lair. 'lhe faculty play, Skinner s Dress Drama
Suit," gave students an opportunity to see their instructors
oif their dignity in a riotous comedy. "Dorothy Vernon of Haddon Hall," was
a costume play of Elizabethan times. It was presented in March by the dra-
matics classes. The Senior play, "Jonesy," closed the year successfully. In ad-
dition to the big plays, one act plays were given in assemblies and also at club
meetings in both Urbana and Champaign.
For many years llrbana has had a very fine dramatic sponsor and coach.
Mrs. Hamilton may feel that her efforts were not in vain after the successful
production of the plays we have had this year. Miss Lair and Miss Fisher proved
to be able coaches by their presentation of the Junior play.

Bill Browder worked as librarian and Virginia Church
played the accompaniments the first semester. The accom-
panist for the second semester was Mary Mills.
The club is made up of about twenty-five boys who re-

picked from the glee club, made a number of appearances
throughout the year. They furnished a special music for
club meetings and sang at different churches. Virginia JOHN I,EM0"K'

The boys' glee club was entered in the Conference meet of the Big Twelve.
Vocal soloists also entered the contest this spring.
On various occasions the entire club furnished music for events at school
and holiday programs in town. Plans were made to give programs at the grade
schools and Thornburn. There were possibilities that the club would broadcast.
Aside from the enjoyment derived from singing, the boys feel that time
spent in the Glee Club has proved of value. They have received excellent train-

Urbana High was very Well represented in various lines of musical activity
this year. In November the All-State Orchestra and Chorus assembled at the
University and we had representatives in both groups.
The North Central Division of the National High School orchestra met in
Des Moines the third week in April. The orchestra was conducted by Dr. J. E.
Maddy and Henri Verbrugghen. Elizabeth Bilsborrow, William Scovill, Van
Dusen Kennedy, and Bob Hieronymous played in the orchestra.
Summer sessions of the National Orchestra are held at the camp at Inter-
lochen, and Urbana was represented here also.
Perhaps the most popular ensemble this year was the boys' double quartet.
It was organized this fall under the direction of Mr. Vierow and appeared on
programs throughout the year.
The double quartet is made up of eight boys and two sing each part. They
are Merill Leister and Newlin Morgan, first tenorsg Joe Carson and Gayle Hol-
lingsworth, second tenorsg Bill Browder and Donald Faust, baritones, Max
Meadows and Al Smith, basses.
Virginia Church accompanied the singers the first semester and Van Dusen
Kennedy played the accompaniment the second semester.
Last year the Saxophone Sextet proved so popular an ensemble that it was
continued this year. Practically the same personnel was used this year and the
sextet was composed of the following boys: Gene Weisige1', first altog Donald
Alberts, second alto, VValter Still, third alto, Robert Gundlock, tenor, Chuck
Anderson, baritoneg and Dale Harvey, bass. The sextet used t'Humoresque', by
Dvorak, HSextet from Lucia," and L'Twilight in the Mountains" on their pro-
grams. This music ensemble fitted in as entertainment tor various occasions.
Gene Weisiger directed the group in rehearsal with Captain Overgard's and
Mr. Vierow's help.

Early in the fall several orchestra members organized the string quintet.
The ensemble consisted of one instrument from each section of the orchestra Hlld
the personnel was as follows: Rachel Smith, first violing Miriam Savage, second
violin, Leonard Sanders, violag Ruth Mosher, cellog and Elizabeth Bilsborrow,
bass. Captain Overgard and Mr. Vierow trained the quintet. This small en-
semble proved very popular for furnishing music for banquets, playing in small
rooms and between acts of plays. Those in the quintet received much valuable
playing experience, and at the same time got a great deal of enjoyment from it.
Ensembles composed of players from one section of the band or orchestra
were a new development this year. One of the prominent organizations of this
type was the horn quartet. The four horns playing in parts proved very etfec-
tive and the ensemble was well received.
The boys in the horn quartet were: Williani DeTurk. Robert Yapp, Donald
Oehmke, and George McCoy. They entered their ensemble in the state contest
in April. Captain 'Overgard and Bill Scovill coached the boys in their interpref
tation of their contest number.
The woodwind ensemble was one of last year ls groups which continued
work this year. Two of tl1e players in last year's quintet, which won the na-
tional contest, played this year. They were Van Dusen Kennedy, bassoon, and
Bill Scovill, French horn. The new members of the group were Miriam Savage,
oboe: Elizabeth Bilsborrow, clarinet, and Bob Hieronymus, flute.
The number used in the state contest was 'tScherzo" from HViertes Quin-
tet" by Soluck. The quintet played on the program at Monticello.
Under the direction of Mr. Vierow and Captain Overgard tl1e players de-
rived a great deal ot pleasure from their music.

DOROTHY VERNON OF HADDON HALL
From year to year the dramatic classes have advanced from the simple three
act plays to the more complicated four act dramas. "Dorothy Vernon of Had-
don Hallu was the most difficult play ever attempted by the high school, but it
turned out to be the greatest success. Both the matinee and evening perform-
ances were staged without a flaw.
A great deal of time and care was spent on the scenery, and the result was
a beautiful and very picturesque stage setting. The school electricians were re-
sponsible for the splendid lighting effects.
"Dorothy Vernon of Haddon Hall" was a historical play, taking place dur-
ing the reign of Queen Elizabeth. The first and fourth acts were staged on the
terrace of an old English castle. The second and fourth acts were set in the
interior of Haddon Hall and Rutland Castle.
The costumes, together with the supreme acting made the play far above
the average high school theatrical. From Queen Elizabeth in all her majestic
splendor down to the greasy aproned kitchen boy, all were arrayed in complete
costumes befitting an ancient English court. The part of Dorothy Vernon as
played by Eugenia Freemon was exceptionally well done. Eugenia put her own
vivaciousness and wit into the part that so well fitted her in a way that
thoroughly charmed her audience. Oretha Pierce with her poise and splendid
carriage made Queen Elizabeth much more than a mere figure in history. The
hero, taken by Gordon Faulkner, seemed very much alive and able to cope with
the dangerous situations. Gordon, with his athletic and well built physique.
made a good appearance in his doublet and hose.
The entire cast included: Eugenia Freemon, Gordon Faulkner, Morre'l Bar-
ber, Corabel Lowman, Oretha Pierce, Esther Speck, Newton Walke1', John Pea-
cock, Bob Bowditch, Olin Browder, Miriam Noel, John Barth, Hildalice Saddoris,
Mary Jo Scovill, and Charlotte Beard. But no matter how good a cast, the play
would never be a success without the excellent coaching of Mrs. Hamilton.

The Hrst Stunt Show in three years was held at Urbana High School, Thurs-
day evening, February 12. Competition was very keen and many feel that it
should be made an annual affair.
The Sophomores, who presented the winning stunt, "Beauty A La Carte,"
had an exceedingly clever and original idea. The setting was in a beauty shop
at midnight which was carried out in detail. One of the most outstanding
features of the act was the dialogue, it was exceptionally good. There were lots
of takeotfs on people around school. The advisers for the Sophomore act were
Miss Brownell, McClurg, Woocl, Miss Lawson, Mr. Hallam, and Mr.
Tilbury. The Sophomores will have their name engraved on a silver shield.
The Freshman stunt was called 'tShades of Barnum and Bailey." The
clowns were especially cute and the features were excellent. The Faculty ad-
visers were Miss VVebber, Miss Biedermann. Mr. Murphy, Thomas, Mr.
Nolen, Mr. Boyd, and Mr. James.
Many felt after the first stunt that the Seniors would win. The theme was
so different and the skeletons and ghosts made shivers run up and down your
spine. The name of it was 'LCurriculitis." The advisers were Nelson, Miss
Rompel, Johnson, Miss Bullock, and Mr. Horner.
The Junior stunt, "Cutl Shoot! Cut!" was the dress rehearsal. for a movie
in Hollywood. The scene was in a cabaret. The setting of this stunt was quite
effective. The huge black cat with blinking red eyes, tl1e paper hats, balloons,
confetti and serpentine added greatly to the presentation.
A great deal of credit was due not only to the people who actually appeared
on the stage, but to the committees who set the stage, helped with costumes, and
to the teachers who spent so much time supervising practices, training choruses
and finding new ideas. Eyerley served as general chairman of all the stunts.

In place of the annual Junior Orph, the Junior class staged a play entitled,
"Mummy and the Mumpsf' This production was given for the purpose of rais-
ing money to finance the Junior-Senior Reception. Out of the entire cast of ten
characters, eight made their Hrst appearance as actors. The play was a first class
comedy and all the characters certainly did their part to make it a success. The
cast of characters included: David Lincicome, George Phillips, John Peacock,
Newton Walker, Lawrence Greenwell, Fern Nelson, Catherine Corkery, Elinor
Nixon, Betty Thomas, and Bernice Quinton. The setting is laid in a girls' school.
Miss Agatha. Laidlow, the principal, is expecting Sir Hector Fish, a noted scien-
tist. He arrives in a mummy case to avoid being quarantined for the mumps.
He remains in hiding because someone is impersonating him who is in love with
one of the students. Things become complicated, mainly through the stupidity
of Racker, man of all work. But in the end everything is straightened out and
the right couples are united.
A three-act comedy, "Jonesy," by Anne Morrison and Peter Hookey was
chosen as this year's Senior play. It was a success in 1929 when produced at
the Bijou Theater in New York.
The title role, Wilbur Jones, was taken by Olin Browder. Eugenia Freemon
as Diana Devereaux, the leading feminine role, was charming. Mrs. Jones was
played by Oretha Pierce, Anna Jones by Susan Anderson, and Henry Jones by
Robert Bowditch. Pat Busey as Mildred Ellis, Walter Still as Billy Morgan,
and Morell Barber in the role of Stanley Jackson were capable interpreters of
their parts. The entire cast was excellent and presented a finished performance.
Wilbur Jones has just come home from college and he falls in love with the
ingenue of the local stock company. The efforts of his family to prevent an elope-
ment result in many amusing and embarrassing situations. The modern costumes
contributed to the success of the play. Good staging and lighting completed a
fine presentation of an entertaining comedy.
FACULTY PLAY -
"Skinner's Dress Suit" was presented by the faculty on December 10, in
the High School Auditorium. The cast included "Honey Rutherford" played
by Miss Lair who was successful in winning her man after she had helped him
achieve success. The hero, Skinner, was played by Mr. Hallam. His employers
were McLaughlin and Perkins, Mr. Hornor taking the part of Mr. Mcliaughlin,
and Mr. Nolen the part of Perkins. Mr. Briggs, salesman for the firm, was Mr.
Eugene Schroth. The last member of the office force was the office boy, Tommy,
played by Mr. James. Mrs. McLaughlin was played by Miss McClurg. Mrs.
Colby, a wealthy social leader, played by Miss Ricketts, and Miss Colby played
by Miss VVebber gave a charity fete, Where Skinner made his first appearance in
society. Miss Brownell, Miss Bullock, and Miss Mowrey were guests at the fete.
Mr. Jackson, portrayed by Mr. Tilbury was the dissatisfied business man. His

into society. Mrs. Hamilton coached the play and she deserved much credit for

extemporaneous speaking and second in interpretative reading. First place in
dramatic reading was won by Budgie Spearling. Urbana High has reason to be
proud of these people and we only hope to maintain this high standard in the
Students of Urbana. High School have reason to be proud of their public
speaking department. Real talent is discovered in these classes. Pupils receive
valuable training in thinking and learn to express themselves clearly. It is
usually from this department that the people are chosen to represent the school
in various contests.
Mrs. Hamilton is the able instructor of these classes. She is a great deal
more than " just a teacher" to those who know her.
Public speaking is a thing of vast importance and benefit to every indi-
vidual, and the boy or girl who goes through school without enrolling in some
type of public speaking course is neglecting an important phase of his educa-
tion which will be of real value throughout life.
For the past three years the Rosemary staff has sponsored the presentation
of the fall style show. Urbana merchants have cooperated willingly and fur-
nished the latest clothes to be modeled by high school students.
This year tl1e setting for the models was a garden. The fall colors used in the
decorations set oif the models and were also appropriate for the entertainment.
Urbana stores which participated in the style show were Kline's, Mont-
gomery Ward and Company, Sholem's Shoe Store, Harry Little and Company,
and Lowenstern's. Brash Flower Shop, Prehn's, and Montgomery Ward loaned
furniture and palms to complete the stage.
Special features were presented by Frances Portman, Betty Rowland, Mary
Belle Carpenter, Lawrence Smith and Stanley Chapman, Wilma. Brown, and
Mary Birely. Wilma Brown, Jean Peabody, and Betty Moomau were the ac-
companists. Those who have attended the style shows have enjoyed them fully
and declared each better than the one before.

With loyal hearts we pledge you,
Our heroes of the field,
We will cheer you on to victory,
With a faith that ne'er will yield.
Tho' our foes may seem o'erwhelming
Tho' hostile voices ring,
With that old Urbana pep we'll triumph
as we sing
To you we're always faithful, Urbana High
With all our hearts we cheer
For you and that good old football
line we 'll back, so
Fling out your colors of the Orange and
You're the fairest, bravest in the land,
HAIL TO URBANA
There is a flame right in my heart,
It grows brighter each day,
It leans to you, Urbana High,
It points no other way.
"Oh ye who gladly learn and teach
May there ever be
Moral virtue in your speechi'
And truest loyalty!
Hail to Urbana-here's our heart
With the Orange and the Black
For you we'll always stand.

Though our foes be sturdy,
May there never be-
Shameful cowardly defeat
But righteous victory!

through that line,
Run the ball clear 'round Champaign,
A touchdown sure this time!
On Urbana! On Urbana! Fight on for
Fight, fellows, iight, tight, fight,

To take such a lordly air with me,
You may orate, or make a speech,
But no one ever yet could teach
A boy like you to watch well out
And always know what he's aboutg
In Physics lab you often work,
And while you don't appear to shirk
They say one day you had the gall
To take a jar of alcohol
And seeming ne'er e'en once to think,
You poured it boldly down the sink!
No one saw youg nor could prove
You had ever made a move-
You left them one and all to think
Donald Dixon'd had a. drink!
No reason yet could you ever find
To account for such an absent mind!
You've done quite well,
As all can tell
In giving your roast to me.
But the senior class
Sits there enmasse
For your roving eye to see.
Pick out your man
Do the best you can.
And roast as hard as you will!
I'll promise you
To give you a better one still.

NValt and Bob made quite a hit
In the class stunt show with their little
A clever dance, so many said,
That it made them grow quite big of
Said Bob one day, "I think we might
Put on our show for 'amateur night'g"
"O let's" said Walter, "sure we can"-
And then right there they made their
But the Orph was so full of friends that
That both the boys had bad stage fright:
Their legs just trembled, wouldn't go.

The hearts of these two boys just sank,
But with their pennies they'll start a
Donald Troy Wikoff
With half a dozen auto cars
A-sitting round the place,-
Anyone of which we know
Could hit a monstrous pace,-
What could Donald ever want
What did he think he'd do
With that ancient motorcycle
Model nineteen ltwo?
He tinkered round with it a bit
Then hitched it up one day,
It balked and kicked around so much
Like a young colt at play
We heard it threw him off its back,
He landed on the street,
He hit upon his head they say,
Instead of on his feet.
We heard it cost him just two bucks
But it wasn't just so funny
To have it buck and kick that way
So he sold it for two bunnies.
Clara Frances Baldwin
Raven locks with eyes of brown
Capture every lad in town,
But most of all the lads, I Ween,
The fellows on our basket team.
There is a spot in the lower hall
Where Frances' locker's by the wall,
A spot right there in that open space
That is a famous trysting place.
If Bob's not standing idly there
Gazing at this lady fair
With love-light twinkling in his eye
While in his heart he heaves a sigh.-
Then sure it's Edgar, 'scaped from gym,
Who fits this lady's changeful whim,
Edgar with his heart awhirl
For favors shown him by this girl.
But if 'tis neither, then I'll swear,
Gordon will be standing there,-
All a-tremble with the fear
Steve would find him lingering here!
For Steve was sure that all this iight
To gain the lady's favor might
Disrupt his team: for jealousy
Is ever bad for unity.
But the good old team survived, we hear
And this sweet lady shed a tear,-
Then with a gesture of disdain
Transferred her favors to Champaign!
Kenneth Keith Thomas
When the boys Went down to Benton
On a football trip, they tell,
They spent the night at Flora
In a middle class hotelg ,
The partitions were a little short
Left quite an open space-
Thought Kenneth, "I will have some fun
Through that open space."
He filled the water pitcher full,
And climbed upon a chair,-
And threw the water over
Thought "Buck" was sleeping there,-
Alack, alas, a stranger man
Had that adjacent room:
One heard him in the morning
To the landlord making moang
"It must have rained right hard," he said

"And your roof has sprung a leak,
For my pants were hanging on a chair
Of this I hate to speak,-
But you can feel it for yourself,
I'm mad enough to choke-
.Iust feel them, sir, and you will see
That they are wet as soak!"
Harry Gordon Faulkner.
Gordon thought he had a date,
For every Sunday night,-
With her he thought he'd surely rate
As no other fellow might.
One night he waited there for her
As he usually did, at church,
But soon he saw, with heart astir,
She'd left him in the lurch,
That there was standing at her hand
A rather handsome Champaign man!
Not knowing where to go or turn,
And ne'er a thought of time or place
Full of anger and concern
He slapped her in the face!
'Twas not the end of this sorry tale
Or so the story goes:
For we have heard this saddened male,
Went round with a broken nose!
If you ask this lad how't came about
He'll give some -excuse or other,-
But the hint has somehow just leaked
She had an older brother!
But many things this lad has done
'That have brought him much of fame,
In plays he's many a laurel won
Has gained an artist's name.
In basketball and football too
He ever played the game,
While all the time he always knew
His lessons just the same.
William Robert Hamilton
Harley Leonidas Tarpenning
Vandalia's quite a stretch from here,
It's a full five hours by car,
But if one hitch-hikes, he may fear
He never will get thar!
Bill can tell you how it goes
To 'wiggle' for a ride-
'Twas seldom "yes," but many "noes"-
That his requests denied,
A ride with this, or t'other man,
Then walk a mile or three
Brought them just to Eilingham,
When 'twas quite too dark to see-
With half the distance yet to do
And time the game should start,
And Bill was hungry, weary too-
Entirely without heart
To venture on-no friends in town
And ne'er a bit of kale,
And ne'er a place to lay them down
So they spent the night in jail!
John Harmon Carson
Johnnie stayed at home one day
A thing we hate to mention
For staying home the way he did
Is sure to bring "Detention,"
"But that," said John, "is what I like
And this is no pretention,
'Tis easier far than Latin verbs
Or Latin noun declensions.
In all the courses that I've had
I've met with much dissensiong-
But I'd never flunk at all, I'm sure
Nor have the least contention
If all the studies that I took
Were as easy as 'Detention'."
Naomi Helen Steffy.
A rather useful maid is she
Good at oflice work,
She often is on duty
And is never known to shirk.
With all her lessons to prepare
And a mile and a half to walk
However, does she find the time
VVith Lowell so much to talk?
One sees them on the side-walk
One sees them in the hall,
To see one without the other
Is never done at all!
' Hoot" Gibson would have stolen her
Without a 'by your leave'
Would have carried her clear off,
Ii' it hadn't been for Steve,
For he was always close at hand,
And called Villars quick to come-
But before he ever got there
"Hoot" was on the run!
At last it seems quite settled
And we're betting a sure thing
That Naomi will appear some day
With a diamond ring!
Donald William Dixon.
The senior boys crept out one night
And raised their old white flag
With no one els-e around in sight,
Their efforts did not lag,
Until their '31 was flung
To the early morning breeze.
But when the Juniors saw it hung
They worked as hard as bees,
Brought a vaulting pole and push pole
And tried to burn it down-
Tho' that was something very new,
The seniors rushed around,
They broke the pole, that senior band
But the juniors pulled and tore

Until the pole pulled through Don's hand
And left it mighty sore.
But that is only half the tale
For the real fight came at night
The seniors thought they,couldn't fail
To keep their honor bright.
Rut e'er they climbed e'en half the pole
There came, how, no one knows,
A stream of water, icy-cold
From out the fireman's hoseg
Seems Donald got the most of it,
And the Juniors got the flag.
Now Donald simply has a fit
If one mentions that old rag.
Bernard Jefferson Johnson,
Elizabeth Fisher Goble,
Bernard has two eyes for her,
And she has two for him,
And they have eyes for no one else,
Or else their eyes are dim.
Each one can see the other one
But neither can see both,
If they only could, I'm sure they would-
Admit, and nothing loath
It would be well, as Burns has said
If some good power could give us
The "giftie" which we seldom have
To see ourselves as others see us!
Melville Andrew Youhill.
He wants to know the where and why
'I'he what and who and when,
He'll question you until you sigh
And never stop it then,
Especially in History Eight
No point gets by his pen.
Perhaps he doesn't know every date
But he knows just why it's been.
And when he learned the Nobel Prize
Was giv'n for deeds for peace-
When he learned its monstrous size
His wonder never ceased.
For why, said he, should any man,
VVho created dynamite-
Give a prize of forty grand
To one who doesn't fight?
Ruth Loren Wyninger.
A little hunch, a little punch
Spilled upon the iloor,
A little prance, a little dance,
Just that and nothing more!
But there were none who had no fun
When they danced with Ruth that day-
Said she and laughed, "that's where
But some of it got away!
Just step right in, you can but swim-"
And made them dance right through it-A
And with her chaff, she made them laugh
As none but Ruth could do it!
Eugenia Lois Freemon.
Eugenia's in the halls so much
We've always wondered why
And always we have noticed
She has a roaming eye.
She must be hunting something
Or somebody it may be,
A magazine for her public speech
Or perhaps a she or he.
Olin met her there one day
She asked him if he'd save her,
If he'd get a book for her
Do her this little favor,-
A paper she would like to have,
'Twould be in 204-
But why not get it for herself?
She went with him to the door.
"Oh say," said she, "please will you note.
VVhere Irving Seely's seated,
If he's next to Frances, I'll admit,
I surely will feel cheated."
Maurice Johnson Shroyer.
Are they pimples? No, they're dimples,
Said his friends one day-
Little red spots, are those said spots
What's the matter, hey?
Farmer shot me, almost got me
With his blamed old gun-
Had a darn pull, with my arm full
So I couldn't run!
I'm a-tellin' that that melon
Almost cost my life
While the fellows just as well as
Left me in the strife-
They forsook me,-later took me
With a right good will,
Without splurgin', to a surgeon-
Now they pay the bill!
Helen Louise Russell.
I-lere's to Helen, we've a toast,
Every virtue she doth boast-
Loyalty to every friend,
Energy that hath no end
Ne'er a task that's left undone,
Labors often without fun
0'er a troublous yearbook page,
Undaunted, tho' she hath no wage!
In every test we find her true
Sincere and ever constant too.
Efficiency in every deed,
Resolving that she must succeed.
Unseeking honor for her own
Seeking just to serve alone.
Strong is she in virtues rare,

fUontinu1'd from Page 16411
Ever faithful, honest, square-
Living right is its own need,
Lofty ideal e'er her creed.
You've done your best, I will admit,
The foibles of my class to hit.
We've each of us tilled our boast,
And we have given roast for roast.
I hope that you'll not take amiss,
Nor misint-erpret the real gist
Of what I've said. I pray you now
Accept my friendship's kindly Vow,
Permit me now to toast your class
Ere from your circles we do pass,
Here's to you, Juniors, one and all,
May all good things to you befall,
Success to you, a World of fame,
Bring honor to each Junior's name.
We thank you for this kindly thought,
Forgive the havoc you have wrought,
Forget the unkind things you have said,
And call down blessings on your head,
We give this greeting to you all
As you go out to duty's callg
May every joy which you can know
Attend your feet where'er you go.
An olden toast we offer you,
'Tis given with good wishes true:
"Here's to you early, here's to you late,
I-Iere's to the favorites of fate,
I-lere's to the best class in the State-
VVith all our hearts we thank you
For the toast so kindly given,
For it makes a pleasant parting
Of all bitter feelings riven.
That you may pass your senior year
With naught of worry nor of fear,
We leave our mascot here with youg
It will prove a blessing true,
Guard it, handle it with care,
And to it render service rare.
We thank you for your wishes,
And for this mascot toog
VVe will try our best to be
To its traditions true.
We'll guard it well, and use it wellg
And when from these halls we pass,
VVe'll give it with its legend old
To the next year's senior class:
Thus will it e'er, as years go by,
Bring blessings on Urbana High.

Robert Smith has published a collec-
tion of poems entitled "Tender Recollec-
tions of Youth Gone By," which has ob-
tained for him the Nobel prize. Some of
his best known compositions are dedi-
cated to old acquaintances, among them
Marjorie Foor, Mattie Miller, Marjorie
Fletcher, and Dolores Smith.
Elizabeth Bilsborrow has charge of a
health camp in the Switzerland Alps and
is famous for her work in teaching the
children an appreciation of music. She
has obtained excellent results.
Irving Seely has lost his slim and
sylph-like form and is a big, burly
butcher, with Gene Freemon as his
cashier. A mysterious and apparently
penniless customer has left him a fortune
amounting to several millions of dol-
la.rs because the beneficent Mr. Seely
once allowed him to take a pound of
pig's feet on credit. In telling the press
of his new experiences in the realm of
capitalism, Mr. Seely says that he in-
tends to offer his fortune to his -cashier
as an inducement into matrimony .
Josephine McAuley is spending a very
noble life as matron of an orphanage,
devoting all her time and interests to
those poor unfortunates.
Charles Anderson has commercialized
his talent for picking up tallen fireplaces
in stage scenes. He received his train-
ing during Dorothy Vernon.
Katherine Smith, Dot Farquhar, Har-
riett Hamilton, and Orian Lemen have
been selected as the Baby Wampus stars

lessly in love with London's stage cele-
brity, Rosie Turner, and is now the hen-
pecked husband of a temperamental
Morrel Barber has been proclaimed
the champion hog-caller of the United
States. The same day Mr. Barber won
this distinction, Elizabeth Koller won
first in a rolling-pin throwing contest.
Lorene Lytle placed second. Corabel
Lowman third, and Jean Peabody re-
ceived honorable mention.
High up in the hills of Abyssinia there
is an ancient monastery which has never
been entered by any except the monks.
In a dispatch recently received, I no-

divorce. It is rumored that her next
husband will be Edgar Root.
Stanley Henwood has just received the
diploma signifying that he is a gradu-
ate of Urbana High School.
Dick Fulmer, a noted archeologist, has
unearthed the skull of an ancient
Egyptian king. His wife, the former
Edna Sanders, states that she will do-
nate the money gained thereby to be
used for a pension for disabled sailors.
She says she hopes it will prevent Don
Dixon and his wife, Mirian Cranmer,
from ever being in want. Don is at pres-
ent an admiral in the service.
Miss Patricia Busey, the famous model
of the Scott stores, will soon appear in a

I had finished reading all the dis-
patches. I sighed. My reading had
brought back memories of my old school
days, and I remembered the care-free
joyous existence We all once led. Ah!
Such sweet memories! I gazed dream-
ily out of my window. Across the street
a flower vendor displayed his violet,
golden, and flaming red flowers. A bril-
liant sign announced that the American
sensations, Mary Frances Francisco and
Helen Beaird, were appearing in the lat-

darme, whom I recognized as Van Dusen
Kennedy passed my window. I was go-

was interrupted by a stenographer bring-

What varied careers my classmates

their highest ambitions and were happy
in their fulfillment. May they ever re-

Other Characters: One Hundred Sixty-four Dignified Juniors
Wlieil the curtain rises this same group, now characterized by seriousness, is
shown entering into every phase of high school life, confronting weighty tasks
and sharing responsibilities. Many of their members are elected as club ofiicersg
several of the boys receive their letters in athletics, the class is well represented
in music and oratoryg and nine of the members are elected to the National Honor
Society. The climax of the third act is the Ju11ior Orph, the theme of which is
based on the circus with the usual balloons, freaks, wild animals, and clowns.
The May Breakfast, at which the girls play the role of hostesses to the Senior
girls, and the Junior-Senior Reception held at the Urbana-Lincoln Hotel, close

One Hundred Sixty-seven Other Solemn Seniors
And now the curtain rises on the fourth and last act. The most thrilling
scene is the scoreless Champaign-Urbana Football Game which is followed by
the Thanksgiving Dance. Next comes the Style Show with all its promenading
and display of attractive dresses and suits. After exams they renew their efforts
on the Annual, but oftentimes they are exclaiming with Shakespeare, "Oh ye
gods, ye gods! Must I endure all this!" Then the class play, "Jonesy', is pre-
sented-"Well spoken with good accent and discretion." An additional feature,
coming later in the act, is the Junior-Senior Reception. It is a brilliant affair with
the Juniors entertaining royally. Next comes Class Day with its usual good time.
The final scene in the last act consists of the Commencement Exercises. Clad in
caps and gowns of grey, the class tiles in, each trying his best to look solemn and
dignified. Speeches and music constitute the program and there is much laugh-
ter and even a few tears. Finally, each is awarded his diploma and he leaves
the stage as the curtain descends for the last time on the Class of 1931.

EDITING A YEAR BOOK
Getting' out a yearbook is no picnic.
lf you print jokes, people say you are silly,
If you don't, they Say you are serious,
If you copy things from other annuals,
You are too lazy to write them yourself,
If you don 't you are stuck on your own stuff.
If you stick close to the job all day,
You ought to be out hunting up material,
If you go out and try to hustle,
You ought to be on the job in the office.
If you don 't print all contributions,
You don't appreciate true genius,
And if you print them,
The Annual is filled with junk.
If you make a change in the other fellow 's make-up,
You are too critical 5
If you don 't, you are asleep.
Now, like as not, some fellow will say
We swiped this from some other yearbook-
YVell, criticising, critical critics-we did!
