THE ARENA 19 4 2 Co-Editors MARTHA COTTON RICHARD BEST Business Managers ROBERT BANDY JAMES LINK Sponsor ZULU Z. W RIGHTEARLY PARIS IIIST 0 R Y Edgar County was first settled in the spring of 1817 in the section known as North Arm. Seven families, the Blackburns, Strattons, Mayos, Lanes, Beckwiths, Browns, and Bledsoes entered land and hegan farming. In 1818 eight additional families arrived. Edgar County was created in 1828 at a meeting of the General Assembly. Mrs. Edgar, wife of General Edgar, who was one of the wealthiest men in Illinois and a Major-General in the Illinois Militia, was then at the capital. After being granted permission to name the new county she said, "’My husband gave this name to me; it is mine, and I give it to this new county—I name it Edgar!” The act creating the county appointed a committee of three to locate the county seat. A report that Samuel ance had offered to convey to the county a square block of twenty-six acres on condition that the county seat be located thereon was recorded and adopted. An order was made locating the county seat on the twenty-six acres named in said section; the same to he in a square block, the center thereof to he a certain jack-oak tree blazed and marked “Paris”; the deed to he made by April 15, 1828. and the land surveyed and plotted by June 14. 1828; said lots to he sold at public vendue on the third Monday in June and the town to he named Paris. Soon after the town site was selected, a court house was built. Schools date hack to August. 1824. when Amos Williams organized a subscriptionParis in 1880—looking south.class for thirteen families.

In 1825 the legislature of Illinois passed a law providing for the district system which created the first public schools supported by taxation. The first school district in this county was organized by the county commissioners’ court on March 7. 1826. embracing the village of Paris and the adjacent farms.

The Redmon school on South Central Avenue was built in 1911 to accommodate the grade children in the. south part of Paris. The First Ward grade school, known later as the Sandford school, was the oldest school in Paris at this time. It was condemned and torn down in 1930. The Tanner school on Chestnut street was built in 1899. It replaced the old Union school which stood on the same site. It is also used by the lower grades. 1'he old High School between East Wood and East Court Streets was built in 1882 to replace the old Methodist Seminary, which burned in 1881. This three story brick building was used by both grades and high school until 1909. After this date it was used by the grades only, and the name was changed to Mayo. This building was destroyed by fire in 1927, and was replaced by the present two storv brick structure. Februarv 9, 1909. the high school department moved into this new two storv building on South Main Street. The St. Mary’s parochial school on North Main Street was built in 1899 m the site of tin1 old Edgar Academy. It is not shown in this cut. The Vance grade school on North Main Street was not built until 1912. 9PARIS TODAY In 1841 Reverend Henry I. Venable organized the Edgar Academy on a six-acre tract where the Catholic Church now stands. Scarcely a family in Edgar County from 1841 to I836 failed to be represented in the clientele of that school. In 1848 a Methodist Seminary was erected on the present Mayo School site; the church built the first two stories and a temperance society built the third and used it as a meeting ball. When the Paris Union School District was organized in 1860. this building became a public school. In 1875 the site was purchased from the Methodist Church, and the building was used for school purposes until destroyed by fire in 1881. It was replaced by a three story brick building erected on the same site in 1882. This building was used for both grade and high school until 1909. In 1871 the new district opened its first free publicly supported high school with Professor Alfred E. Harvey as superintendent. Grammar, rhetoric, ancient and modern history, four years of Latin, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, chemistry, botany, zoology, physiology, and mental philosophy were taught. The high school department moved into a new two-story building on South Main Street on February 9. 1909. At this time there were nine teachers in high school and a student body of two hundred fifty. The new building contained about twenty-OUR NEW GYM From the architect’s drawing. 11five classrooms with laboratories for chemistry and physics, biology, and domestic science. Rapid growth in this department soon rendered the new building inadequate, and in 1922 two wings were added, which gave an auditorium with a seating capacity of eight hundred, a modern gymnasium, and ten more classrooms. After the high school department was moved from the old building in 1907. the name was changed to Mayo. This building was occupied by the grades until 1927 when it was so badly damaged by fire that the walls were razed and a new building erected on the same site in 1928. In 1936 the high school was again enlarged by the addition of a new library, built between the assembly and the gym, ami new dressing rooms were added to the gym. By 1910 we were again overcrowded, and the taxpayers voted money for a new gvm-nasium and classrooms. The new gym is now in the process of construction. It occupies one-fourth of a block behind the main building with entrances on Madison Street and Central Avenue. When completed this building w ill have a seating capacity of approximately four thousand. The music and home economics departments w ill he moved into this new building. At present we have a faculty of twenty-nine members and a student body of approximately six hundred fifty. A viewr of tin square.Book One OUR SCHOOL AT WORK AND AT PLAY In Memoriam........

Baldwin, freshman English instructor, passed away on March 16. 1942, after having completed twenty-three years and three months of service to Paris High School. In these years she patiently and kindly guided the freshmen, not only into the myriad paths of English, but also into the social and ethical tasks of good citizenship. Her sympathetic understanding of their adolescent problems is frequently commented on by returning alumni. Not only did the pupils find her helpful and sympathetic, but her colleagues on the faculty found her loyal, untiring, and cooperative. Her passing is a distinct loss to Paris High School, and it is with saddened hearts we dedicate this page to her memory.HOARD OF EDUCATION William Cramer Rodney Bell Karl R. O’Hair, Secretary R. S. Lloyd, President Max J. Money Robert F. CottonMr. and Mrs. Moss at tin Junior-Senior Prom. SUPERINTENDENT mastery of the art of reading through its extensive application becomes the most valuable accomplishment in making use of the experience of others. Reading ability is the key which unlocks the stores of wisdom accumulated in the literature of all ages and peoples. Literary knowledge alone will not insure happiness. The need to provide the necessities of life for ourselves and our dependents requires that we have certain skills to perform definite types of work. However, technical skills in themselves will not enable one to enjoy life. Without a sound philosophy acquired through extensive reading, the most successful person, financially, will not he able to face the trials and hardships without losing poise and equanimity. To the Seniors: No person lives long enough to acquire through actual experience the wisdom necessary to live happily. Because of the limited number of years in the span of life, it becomes necessary to use the experience of others, in addition to one’s own observations, if he is to achieve happiness. The The individual who has acquired both technical skills and a sound philosophy of life is the type of person required to fit into the complicated scheme of things existing at present. This person is said to have an integrated personality, the most valuable possession in the world.PRINGIPAL In February of the present year Miss Carolyn L. Wenz tendered her resignation as principal of the Paris High School and teacher of English. In losing Miss Wenz we lose a capable executive and teacher; with her goes something vital to our school. Miss Wenz has been a life-long resident of Paris. She received her elementary and secondary training here, and was graduated from the old high school in 1891. She then began her career as a teacher at the Walls School south of Paris, followed by a spring term at New Goshen. The following year she entered the Paris schools where she taught in succession the third, fourth, and sixth grades. She received her collegiate degree from the University of Illinois, later taking post graduate work at the University of Chicago. In 1903 Miss Wenz became a member of the faculty at Paris High School, as teacher of English. In 1917 she was elected assistant principal, and two years later was advanced to the prin- rvtf iriRfir cipalship. Thus for many years her influence has been felt in almost every home in Paris. This last year crowns a lifetime of service and devotion to duty. The school has been her life; and by her character and high ideals she has enriched the life of the school. While we of the high school shall keenly feel her loss, she will have the satisfaction of knowing that her duty was well done. And now, to Miss Wenz, our principal. teacher, and counsellor, we, the students of Paris High School, say “Goodbye”; and to Miss Wenz, our neighbor, companion, friend, we say “Hello!” CAROLYN LOUISE WENZ, B.A„ Principal. Paris High School 19E N G L1 SII Although the curriculum at Paris High School has ably served this community for more than seventy years, now more than ever is this service essential in building intelligent citizens for tomorrow. English is considered of such importance that it is required for four years, while in many schools it is required but three. M iss Baldwin and Mrs. Hightower begin with the freshmen in the formation of better literary and rhetorical habits. Due to Miss Baldwin's illness. Miss Green has ably substituted for her this year. In the student’s sophomore year M iss Hunter furthers their training of the freshman year. This year in sophomore English vocabulary building has had special attention both in the literature anil language work. Weekly composition assignments stress letter writing, paragraph development, and familiar essays and are correlated as nearly as possible with the study of BETTY LOU HUNTER, B.A. English III HELEN MURPHY HIGHTOWER, B.A. English I. III. I literary types as presented in the text A d ven tu res in A ppreciat ion. Miss Dayton, Miss Cleveland and Mrs. Hightower have charge of the English in the junior class. It includes the study of the history of English literature from Anglo-Saxon days to the present time, together with the study of composition and grammar and practice in theme writing. In this field we have a new text. Learning to Write. Senior English is under the direction of Miss Wenz and Miss Hochstrasser. The development of American Literature from the earliest colonial times to the present is traced, with emphasis on the fact that literature is the expression of the life of the people. In rhetoric we begin with the paragraph as the unit of all writing, increasing later to themes of several paragraphs, and ending with the writing of a long theme of two thousand words or more. Attention is called to modern literature by the keeping of notebooks of newspaper and magazine clippings. LARUE DAYTON, B.A. English V ADDIE HOCHSTRASSER, B.A., M.A. English VIIHISTORY The students of Paris High School appreciate the competent staff of our history department. In his sophomore year the student makes his choice of either a one or two year history course. Mr. Sweeley, our football coach, teaches five classes of world history. This course is open especially to those students who are pursuing a commercial or vocational course. Mr. Sweeley believes in keeping up with world activities in the national and international arenas, and as a result his students study a current event paper one day each week in addition to his regular course of study. Mr. Van Deventer is the instructor for both ancient and modern history, the two year course for college preparatory students. Ancient history is taught in the sophomore year ami modern DON H. SWEELEY, B.S. World History, Football Coach CARROL VAN DEVENTER, B.S. II istory, Geography EFFIE M. FANSLER, B.A. A merican IIistory history in the junior. The second year, starting with the events leading up to the French Revolution, analyzes the Revolution, the political and military histories of each of the European nations, and finally completes the two year course by discussing the events which brought about the first World War and gives a detailed report of the war and its effects on international relations. In the fourth year, the students must take a course in American history, taught by Miss Fansler. Her course deals extensively with the formation of the United States as we know it today. Each instructor has large classes of at least thirty-five students; this re- eals, I believe, the place the history courses occupy in Paris High School. 21L A N G U A G E and L I B R A R Y In our foreign language department courses in Latin and French are offered. The French course is taught by Miss Farrell. The program includes a study of the basic forms, rules, and constructions of French rhetoric in the first year; and the reading of interesting French selections in the second. As a supplement to the second year a newspaper of current happenings written in French is used. Miss Tate has charge of the Latin. The first year the student learns the declensions and conjugations and a limited vocabulary of Latin words and phrases. The second year continues this type of work and the pupil puts into practice the knowledge so gained by translating Caesar. If the student wishes to pursue the course still further. he may read Cicero’s Orations the third year and Virgil’s Aeneid the fourth. To accompany these courses Signing for books in the library. two Latin newspapers, the "Res Gestae” (Things Done) and the “Acta Diurna” (Daily Doings) are read. As an aid to the student, a large library, one of the largest in the state for a high school of this size, has been established. It consists of more than three thousand volumes at the present and is being increased day by day. Mrs. Marv Bryan has charge of the library. The books are catalogued according to the decimal system used by the Library of Congress. These books, both fictional and non-fictional, cover such subjects as philosophy, religion, sociology. languages, science, the fine arts, literature, history, biography, and travel.

SPEECH The speech course is divided into two semesters; the first term consists of planning speeches, of learning to tell a story, and also work in the writing and presentation of an original oration. In the second semester the students devote their time largely to the study of the drama. Some experimental plays are given to aid them in putting into practice the material they have observed. Miss Cleveland also produces the freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior class plays; she prepares cuttings. too, for students who wish to enter competitive dramatic work. The Speech Club was organized last fall with ninety members. Miss Alice Cleveland is the sponsor. At each meeting all business is discussed and entertainment is given by a few members of the club. This not only provides enjoyment, but it also gives the student experience. Plays, speeches, and pantomimes are given. A new chairman is provided for each program. The plays are usually one act and are directed by a student director with the help and advice of Miss Cleveland. When the program is completed, the audience gives constructive criticism. This teaches those listening to be an attentive audience and to observe the strong and weak points in acting. This club has helped many boys and girls gain self-confidence and experience in speaking and acting.GENERAL SCIENCE and B IO L O G Y Five different courses are offered in science—general science, biology, chemistry, senior science, and physics. Our teaching staff for these sciences includes Miss Church for general science; Mrs. Harrington, who is substituting for Miss Luckhaupt this year, for biology; Mr. Little for both chemistry and senior science; and Mr. Ariens for physics. Every freshman is required to take the course in general science, so Miss C. J. LITTLE, B. Ed. Chemistry, Senior Science FANNIE M. LUCKHAUPT, B.A. Biology Mr. Little instructs his class in chemistry in a test for a chloride. OTTO R. ARIENS, B.A., M.S. Ph ysics, Mat hem at ics MIRIAM L. CHURCH, B.S. General Science. 24 In the Biology Laboratory Church has a large number of classes. Within this course comes the study of plant life, the simple mechanics of the modern world, a hit of astronomy, and a review of the modern automobile. This course is one of the more interesting to most students. After completing his course in general science, if the student wishes to pursue the study of plant and animal life still further, he may continue with a course in biology. Mrs. Harrington, because of Miss Luckhaupt’s unfortunate accident, has taught the classes this year. They have studied the compositions and characteristics of the differ- miHUm AlUMIMWM VCAMOIUMCHEMISTRY and P HYSICS A Class in General Science cut kinds of plant ami animal life. In the junior year the school opens a course in basic chemistry, which is taught hy Mr. Little. This course includes a study of the basic elements and compounds which are found in the world today, and their characteristics and uses in modern life. Soap making, analysis of well-known compounds, and a study of coal, tar. petroleum, and alcohols (industrial chemistry), are a few of the things which are studied. Mr. Little also has two classes in advanced general science. This course stresses application rather than theory, and directs special attention to the social implications of the subject matter studied. In the final year Mr. Ariens, who also teaches the newly-created trigonometry class this year, instructs the seniors in a study of the more advanced physical problems of today such as gravitation, speed, heat, refrigeration, light, and sound, to mention only a few. This course is, just as chemistry, supplemented by laboratory tests, which aid in giving added interest to the courses and helps prove to the students the conditions and factors which they have studied in their text hooks.CHARLES I). ENDIIOLT. B.S. Industrial Arts INDUSTRIAL ARTS One of the more popular courses for hoys is the industrial arts class, which Mr. Vi endliolt teaches. This course gives the hoy who is interested in carpentry or mechanics a chance for some basic training along these lines. The “shop,” where all the work is carried on, is a veritable house of creation. for here the hoys design and produce their projects. Some of these have been cabinets, (‘hairs, book racks, and tables of various kinds. An advanced study of this course is offered in mechanical drawing. This is tli e production of minute and difficult drawings to set scale and prepares the students for drafting work in later years. Two distinct courses are offered in mathematics: one for tho.-e students who plan to attend college, and the M A T If E M A TICS other for the students who plan to enter the business world upon graduation. This first group includes courses in elementary algebra and trigonometry, which are taught by Mr. Ariens; and advanced algebra, plane and solid geometry, taught by Mr. Trulock. The algebra and geometry courses are prerequisites to the study of physics and are preparatory for college mathematics. The second course is planned to prepare the student with an ample knowledge of business arithmetic. Miss Steidl teaches these classes. The course includes instruction in insurance, installment buying, stocks, and taxes, to mention only a few. Mr. Trulock left in February for defense work and was replaced by Miss Bahner. W. DALE TRULOCK, B.Ecl. MathematicsCOMMERGE In this age of machinery and big business a large number of typists, bookkeepers, and general office workers are needed. Our large commercial department, taught by such capable instructors as Miss Wright, Miss Kisser. M iss Steidl. and Miss Gallatin. develops many students each year in skillful secretarial work. Miss Wright teaches a two-year course in Gregg shorthand and in second year typing, in which the pupils do most of their typing from the shorthand notes. The job of teaching the students who desire only one year of typing is ably taken care of by Miss Kisser, who also has a class in bookkeeping. Miss Gallatin and Miss Steidl introduce the freshmen to business in general business training. This course includes a study of money and banking. Fifth Hour Typing Class various kinds of business transactions, occupations in the commercial field, and many other related problems of business. Miss Gallatin also teaches first year typing to the juniors who are planning to take two years of typing and shorthand, and Miss Steidl gives instructions in commercial arithmetic. With the increased demand for commercial workers, this department renders an important service in the defense program. MERLIE L. GALLATIN, B.S., M. Ed.

Home Living, Related Scietice Miss Perisho and Miss Hendricks are the capable leaders of our home economics department, which includes courses in clothing, foods, and home living. Miss Hendricks directs her students in good grooming, correct posture, dressmaking, and relative subjects. The girls have made gowns for the Red Cross as their projects, rejecting the alternative of sewing for themselves. Miss Perisho instructs the girls in cooking and the purchasing value of foods. These students are taught the essentials of a well balanced diet and VOCATIONS Home Living and Agriculture menu and how to arrange a table attractively. The Agricult ure Department is designed for the hoys who plan to engage in farming after their graduation from high school. The course is under the direction of Mr. Hamilton. The boys study soils and crops, animal husbandry, and farm management in the first three years. The fourth year they may choose a major and a minor subject from either crops or animals. They learn the principles theoretically and then gain practical knowledge by actual experience. An important part of this course is the study of the care and repair of farm machinery. Miss Hendricks teaches the use of the sewing machine. Tin cooking class prepares to bake a cake.1. Farm hoys in the workshop. 2. L. Smittkanip assists A. Sisson in showing his Class A Sheep. 3. M.

Almost every school having vocational agriculture has an F.F.A. Club. Each year some of the members enter their stock and compete at the Edgar County Fair. Several of Mr. Hamilton’s students placed in the higher divisions last August. Malcolm Tucker’s beef calf was chosen as the grand champion and Eugene Poynter’s Angus calf was selected as the reserve champion. Arthur Sisson entered the only Class A pen of sheep.

Besides the first hand of sixty-five members, there is a junior band of thirty-five mem hers. Four members entered the national competition at Flint. Michigan. Ranking in the first division were Harold and Garold Furgeson. Janice Bence MU S I C and Max Johnson won third division ranking. Paris High School is highly honored by the progress her musical department has shown. This includes five organizations. the boys’ glee club, girls’ glee club, and the chorus under the leadership of Miss Mary Margaret Beeson; the orchestra and the P. II. S. Band under the baton of Mr. Lou Waterloo. Enthusiastic and earnest toil gave many Paris students outstanding recognition in the state and national contests. Three of our vocalists, Mary Ellen Pearman, Mary Jane Lindsey, and Garl Bachelor, won first place at the state contest at Peoria. Our girls’ ensemble won first place at the same event. The orchestra has provided entertainment for many of the local organizations in Paris. They have also contributed musical numbers for high school events. The orchestra played a group of Christmas selections including an excerpt from Handel’s Messiah at the Christmas program, and the glee clubs sang Christmas carols. BAND Hock Now: Nuilin, Morris.

Tournaments in the several sports are held within the classes to determine the champions of the various games played. The May Fete is an annual production given by Miss Gisolo and the girls’ physical education classes. Mr. Eveland. our basketball and track coach, keeps the boys in good physical condition. Each quarter a different form of training is pursued. The first quarter the boys are led through vigorous exercises and military drills of all kinds, which seem to be especially practical at the present time. The second quarter and until basketball season is over, the boys play basketball in groups and run through basketball drills en masse. At the close of basketball season. Mr. Eveland changes to a period in which he teaches tumbling for the primary purpose of limbering the boys up. In the final quarter track is the thing, and races are held in each of the classes. Mr. Eveland finds some of the material for his basketball ami track teams by looking over the boys in bis classes. MARGARET GISOLO. B.S. Physical Education E. W. EVELAND R.S.

It's a rare occasion when you see Miss Hunter without a smile, or fail to hear her gay laugh at some time in the day. OUR ASSISTANTS Mrs. McClain is a person you don’t hear much about, if you are good. Her oflicial title is attendance officer, hut to most boys and girls, she is the truant officer. Mrs. Breeze came to Paris from Sumter, South Carolina. This is her first year with us. She is engaged in teaching health to high school girls and in fulfilling a job as all-round school nurse. Early in November she met with an unfortunate accident, which caused such serious injuries that she was absent from school four months. Orville Goff is night custodian. He has been here for twenty-three years and is just getting started. William Gillum, custodian, has been here for twenty-seven years.

In the years 1911-1912 the annual was called the “Pee Aitch Ess.” The “Clarion,” a quarterly magazine, replaced tin yearbook in the years 1915-1916. The purpose of The Arena is to accurately record and portray all the activities of the school year. Much of the success of this thirty-two year old publication has been due to the helpful co-operation of Miss Wenz and the faculty advisors through the years. Miss Wright has served in this capacity for many years. Through the recording of all the events that take place in the nine months that we are present. The Arena becomes the history book of Paris High School. Link Best Bandy Colton Co-Editors—Martha Cotton, Richard Best Business Managers—Robert Bandy, Janies Link Personal Editors—Robert Brubaker.

Both they and their attendants, who were dressed in pastel evening gowns and carried colonial bouquets of spring flowers, were chosen from the senior class. The attendants, who entered the gymnasium in groups of four, were followed by small flower girls, who pre- ceded the crown bearer, the May Queen, and her train hearers. Following the coronation, the girls of the physical education classes of Paris High School and Mayo Junior High School, under the most capable supervision of Miss Margaret Gisolo, and the hoys of Mayo, under the direction of Mr. Arthur Forster, presented a very entertaining performance in honor of Her Majesty. The theme of the presentation was “Turning the Dial,” with each number representing a radio program.

Mr. Bradley, the principal, received many complaints about Henry from the numerous teachers in the play, who were cleverly portrayed. When Henry’s girl friend, Barbara Pearson, preferred him to Central’s football hero, George Bigelow, a fight between the two hoys occurred. A more mature romance was found between the new vice principal and the principal’s secretary.

The FRESHMAN — PLAYS and freshman and sophomore classes presented two one-act plays in 1941, “Selma Goes Psychic” and “Mayor For a Day.” The plays, which had large and well chosen casts, under the direction of Miss Alice Cleveland, performed for a full house that greeted the work of the students with keen applause and enthusiasm. ithin these plays were discovered much new talent which may he valuable to the high school in days to come.

The freshman class owes a vote of thanks to Miss Hunter, Miss Murphy, and the entire sophomore class. Early in October, while things were still a little new, the freshmen were guests at their party. Everyone came dressed as a cow-hoy or cowgirl. The gymnasium was decorated with saddles and Indian blankets to fit in with the Western theme. Each guest was ‘’branded as he entered, with the mark of the ranch he or she was to he on. Representatives of each ranch took part in the games, and a grand prize was awarded the high point ranch. Two sophomore girls sang for us, and a group of upper classmen did a barn dance. We all took part in the grand march and then spent the rest of the evening dancing. Everyone enjoyed the party very much and went home well satisfied. Certainly none of us will soon forget the freshman-sophomore “roundup.” 41 rx u u wjm On May 2.% 1941, in a sea floor setting, the junior class of Paris High School sponsored their annual banquet and prom for the class of 1941. The toastmaster, Willis Bennett. presided at the banquet and presented such naval big-wigs as Admiral Wenz and Secretary of the Navy Moss, who gave timely advice to the seniors preparing to set sail on the sea of life. On the following night, the junior and senior “gobs ami gals” danced in the atmosphere of a deep sea grotto of Davey Jones’ locker to the rhythm of Leo Baxter’s orchestra. Midst the forms of ocean fish the seniors made their last call at the home port before striking their course for the great unknown. May we wish them fair winds, a calm sea, and bon voyage. The Juniors and Seniors with ilieir guests dine and dance on the “sea floor.”rHE PASSING PARADE SEPTEMBER Dear Reader: The first day of school lias once more come and gone. This year we came back rather early, on the second day of the month. Little lost freshmen are wandering around the halls like a bewildered flock of lambs. Honestly, I wonder if we looked that funny when we were freshmen! It gave us all a pretty wonderful feeling to come hack to our hooks, to renew' friendships with old classmates, and to become acquainted with many of the new ones. The three months of summer vacation were grand, but we are always more than ready to come back to Paris High School. Our athletic season really got an early start this year. Just two weeks after the opening of school, we had our first foot-hall game with Georgetown. We also played Irhana and Marshall this month. Paris had her first Fall Festival this year. The local merchants brought a carnival and several special acts here. Many of our own high school students took part in it. OCTOBER Dear Reader: The month of witches and black cats! It was one of our busiest months. Conferences, assemblies, athletic events, vacations—all these we had in full measure. Our Arena editors, business managers, and others on the staff went to the annual yearbook Press Conference at Urbana. Many Latin students attended a Latin Conference at Monticello, Illinois. Resides our usual pep meetings and assemblies, we were entertained this month by Barney Stapert, amateur world champion typist; Floyd Jones, a soloist, who sang negro spirituals; Elliot Janies, the liquid air experimenter; and our Navy Day program. In football. Oblong, Charleston, Wiley, and Casey were our opponents this month. Xe had two vacations, which were as welcome as vacations always are. I he first was visiting day for our teachers and the second was Teachers’ Institute at Charleston. All in all October was a pretty busy month, don’t you think? The new gym as it was in October. Top: Outside view. Lower: Inside view. Tin- Armistice Day football game. The salute to the flag. A pep parade preceding Marshal] football game.NOVEMBER Dear Reader: Football season ended ibis month and basketball began. Six victories out of the eight scheduled football games is something of which to be proud. Basketball began with the annual alumni game, the varsity being victorious. So far we're undefeated. Charleston, Effingham, and Salem all had to kneel to our Tiger quints. Poor teams at Paris are certainly things of the past. The end of the quarter rolled around; fifty-one made the honor roll. The juniors presented their annual class play, “What a Life!” and the Arena staff bad their assembly program to start the sale of The Arena. On the eleventh we bad a very impressive Armistice Day program, and on the thirteenth. Visitors’’ Day. The most important thing of the month, we students thought, was Thanksgiving vacation. Since the affairs of the world were getting more and more serious, we in America had much to be thankful for this year. DECEMBER Dear Reader: Our basketball team really got off to a flying start, and we're still undefeated. We were victorious over llrbana. Champaign, Greenup, Robinson, Charleston T. C., Casey, Mattoon. Taylorville, and Greenfield, Ohio. Every basketball fan is very much impressed by Paris winning streak. Is it luck? If so, bow long will it last? Another outstanding athletic event of the month was the football banquet. Bob Mercer was announced as the captain of next year's team. The speaker at the banquet was Bernie Shively, a Paris alumnus, and now director of athletics at the University of Kentucky. The school was entertained by Staples, the magician, the third of this month. On December 7th came the worst catastrophe that we students have ever known. Japan attacked islands in the Pacific Ocean. On December 8th the United States declared war on Japan and Germany. A Christmas program on December 23rd was followed by an all-school dance. No ninth hour today! Just a hunch of the hoys. Can she twirl! ! Going somewhere. Miss Gisolo? Step lively, it’s 1:15.JANUARY FEBRUARY Dear Reader: After a grand two weeks' Christmas vacation, we all came hack to school on the fifth of this month, and at once we began to review for semester finals. Our team had several important basketball games this month. We played Greenup, Centralia, and Morton. Centralia has been one of our keenest rivals all season, and Morton was ranked very high in view of her accomplishments last year and this year to date. These games were seen by capacity crowds of both visiting and local fans. The Arena sponsored a sale of Tiger pins this month. They were very popular. Everyone here is wearing at least one, and some more than that. This month we had a very unusual musical treat. An accomplished harpist, Mr. George Lyons, was the main feature at one of our assemblies. He played first some classical music, then showed us how swing music sounded on a harp. If we keep as busy all year as we have this month we certainly won't have much spare time. Dear Reader: Basketball, basketball, basketball! That’s all anyone talks or thinks about these days. We are still undefeated. Members of the Arena staff have been struggling with their write-ups which have to be handed in soon. We won the E. I. League basketball tournament again. One more trophy! It won’t be long now until graduation. The seniors have been measured for their caps and gowns. The typing students helped with the military registration February 16. Everyone enjoyed a lyceum program by John Arbuckle. He entertained us with a talk about Alaska. On February 10th the freshman and sophomore classes presented two very entertaining one-act plays. The plays were enjoyed by all. The speech students also attended the Speech Conference at Charleston and brought home several honors. On the twenty-seventh we all enjoyed a school dance sponsored by the junior class. Intramural basketball is now in full swing! All together this has been a mighty busy month. “Scotty” models her Think up pood ones. kids. Ag. hoys at work in the shop, prize winning dress. ? Lunch time! Bernie Shively First Trojan defeat—three more to go. Yeah! Rah! Team.MARCH, APRIL, and MAY Dear Header: This year March was the begilining of many contests between schools in this part ol the state. Charleston T. C. was the scene of the District contests for the hands, glee eluhs, and dramatic students. Paris sent many able representatives to these, and they brought home a large share of the honors. All of these people were advanced to the sectional contests at Peoria in April. This month, too. the basketball tournaments were held. We won the Regional tournament at Charleston ami the Sectional title at Casey. Captain Collier and his squad placed second in the 913 basketball teams in Illinois. Counting this year's achievement. Coach Eveland has sent our Paris Tigers to the State Championship tournament six times out of seven years. We had our spring vacation on the 19th and 20th. which gave us all a chance to see our team play at Champaign. April brought a shower of exciting events to Paris High, not the least of which were the track meets. Our Tiger Relays were held on April 14th. Schools from all over the state sent their best athletes, so it was really quite an event. This year there was a vocational guid-ance program at Charleston T. C. for tin seniors. This program is a great aid to them. They obtain valuable information which helps them to select their life's work. In spite of the tire shortage, due to the. war, a large number of Paris High students went. Along with its proverbial flowers, May brought to Paris High two major events. The first of these was our annual May Fete. Our theme was a patriotic one this year. The dancers represented everything from sailors to horses. The last event of the year, and the most important to the seniors was commencement. which was May 29. It marks the end of a full and profitable year for everyone of us. and may there he many more years like it in the future. Beautiful song, Katie.

Rae Colson gave to Paris High School a trophy on which the outstanding good sportsman of each school year was to have his name engraved. He set up certain rules on which the selections were to he based. Annually the letter men of the three major sports, football, basketball, and traek. are called together and asked to select from their own number three whom they consider worthy of the honor. This is a verv serious problem and is handled as such. The task of selecting the winner is then left to the student body. This year, because of a tie in the vote of the letter men, it was necessary to vote on four names instead of the usual three. The four upon whom the letter men conferred the honor were Warren Collier, Nathan Middleton, Stewart Barr, and Dick Foley. When the final ballots were counted it was found that the students of Paris High School had selected Nathan Middleton. Nate has been out for basketball the past three years. 'Phis season marked his first as a member of the first team. This year Nate was outstanding. During the state tournament the sports writers and radio sportseast-ers could not say too much in praise of him. He was chosen unanimously with Eddleman of Centralia for all-state honors. L.

Coach S wee ley’s charges opened the season against Georgetown, and they came out of the battle victorious by the score of 14 to 13. Particularly outstanding in the first game were Bess and Ochs, who did most of the running, passing, and punting; the line was very aggressive and tackling hard. Bess completed several passes to Irvine, which were responsible for long gains. In their second game, played at Urbana, the Tigers lost 13 to 7. It was not a humiliating defeat by any means, because Urbana always produces fine teams. Bouncing hack from the Urbana game the Tigers proved that they had what it takes by defeating Marshall 13 to 0. Determined to win, they kept plugging away, outguessing their opponents, and compiled a winning total. The following week Paris was handed a setback by Oblong. It was just one of those games in which the odds seemed to he against us. Score 32 to 14. Getting hack into stride the following game, the Tigers scored an E. I. League victory over their annual rivals, Charleston vV City. Playing an inspired brand of football the Tigers compiled 13 points to the Trojans’ 0. With this game won, the Tigers held optimistic views regarding the remainder of their schedule. The following Friday night the Tigers were guests of the Wiley Red Streaks at Terre Haute. They played what might be regarded their masterpiece of the season. winning 26 to 19. The line opened up holes, and the backfield took full advantage of them. Good blocking, fine open field running, and a good passing attack sparked the offense, while hard tackling and quick thinking made their defense hard to crack. The highlight of the game came in the first half when Hess broke loose for an 83 yard touchdown run. Casey next fell victim to Paris by a count of 19 to 0. Paris played heads up football to win another E. I. triumph. On Armistice Day Paris displayed a fine aerial attack in subduing Robinson 34 to 0. The football season of 41 will long be remembered in the annals of Paris High School football. Coach Sweeley, Bess, and Irvine drink H 0 to the success of the team.

The Flaming Hearts of Effingham were next to fall victims to the fighting Tigers. One week later Paris romped over I rbana and Champaign, both strong teams in their own "“big twelve.” Paris began her bid for tin coveted E. I. league trophy by defeating Greenup, Robinson, Charleston T. C., and Casey. The next game with Mattoon attracted state wide recognition, as each team was “tops” in their respective league. Mattoon fell before the Tiger onslaught just as Taylor-ville did the following night. The Tigers next entertained a great team from Greenfield, Ohio. This team enjoyed the same reputation in Ohio as Paris has in this state. Nevertheless, they succumbed to the lightning "blitz” of the Paris team. The score was 41 to 16. Clinton, Indiana, next met the fate of their predecessors. The Paris-East St. Louis game next drew state-wide publicity. Paris won S3 to 14. Paris defeated Greenup for the second time before engaging the famous Centralia team. Despite the efforts of the great "Dyke” Eddleman, the “orphans of the storm” bowed in bitter defeat before the Tigers. Paris now faced four E. I. league rivals: Westfield, Charleston T. C., Charleston City, and Marshall. Although their efforts were a credit to themselves and the E. I. league, the odds were against them.

Although Westville gave a good account of themselves, they went home with the short end of the score. Marshall and Georgetown served only as warm-ups before the final game with Mt. Vernon. Paris climaxed a brilliant season by defeating the southerners 39 to 33. File fresh men-sophomore team under the capable direction of Coach anDeventer enjoyed a very successful season. This squad is composed of hoys who haven t time or experience enough for the varsity. .Many times a player from this squad will develop faster than if he were on the varsity. The hoys opened the season by defeating Fayette township, there, 32-8. on November 25. Their next game they dropped to Charleston City 31-36. On December 17, Casey wai victim of the Paris attack, 25-18. in the Paris gym. Two days later the young Tigers traveled to Champaign where they continued their winning ways with a 27-26 victory. On December 20 the Danville fresh men-sophomore team visited Paris and took a 40-36 victory home with them. Paris did not see action again until January 10. when they dropped a return game to Charleston City 38-26. On January 31 they turned the tables on Danville and handed them a 51—42 setback to avenge their loss to them. They chalked up a victory in their final scheduled game hv defeating Charleston T. C. 47-40, thereby ending a successful campaign in a very pleasing manner. Several of the members of this squad displayed ability which will enable them to improve with age ami someday take over a varsity job. Captain Collier Coarh EvelantlTigers Turn In Brilliant Record The E. I. League Tourney at Casey lias become one of the most colorful basketball carnivals in the state. Due to their excellent defense, the Tigers defeated in rapid succession Charleston City, Palestine, West-field. and Effingham, making Paris the 1942 Champion. After finishing a perfect season undefeated, Paris started on its quest of state championship honors. Charleston T. C., Redmon, and Charleston City each succumbed to the Tiger attack, and as a result Paris moved on to the Casey sectional. Our first foe in this tourney was Tuscola. The Tigers took this contest 50 to 22. Thus stepping up notch by notch the boys from P.H.S. met and defeated in turn Van-dalia. 53 to 37. and Mat loon. 43 to 26. So for the sixth time in seven years Paris advanced to compete in the state finals. Our first victim was Urbana, last year's runner-up, whom we crushed 64 to 40 with Middleton and Humerickhouse leading the field with scores of nineteen and twenty points respectively. The next game found us opposing Streator who boasted an enviable record. Paris built up a very substantial first quarter lead, which Streator found impossible to overcome; Paris 43, Streator 31. This victory threw Paris in the semifinals against Morton of Cicero, last year's champions. In this thrilling contest, the Tigers did not hit their peak until the very late stages of the game, but managed to tally enough to pull the game out of the fire and put them into the finals against Centralia. Not only was there Centralia to battle, but also the “jinx" that no undefeated team has ever won the title. The two teams, Cen-Iralia and Paris, battled very evenly the first and were tied 14 to 14 at the half time. hen the third quarter started Paris suddenly came to life and cut loose on a scoring spree that gave them a lead of thirteen points. It seemed that victory was in our grasp, but something happened and Centralia started creeping up; with just a few seconds to play Eddlemau lied up the ball game. 1 hen lie scored another field goal, giving Centralia the lead 35 to 33, a lead which they never relinquished. Paris lost a tough game the hard way, but too much praise cannot be given the ten boys and their coach who brought Paris High School so much glory all season long.

ERNEST PEEL—Ernie is little but mighty. What he larks in size he makes up for in speed. Hr will he hark next season and we wish him lurk. M AX NORMAN-- Max was good rebounder and held down a forward position. Ilis dependability on grabbing rebounds and his defensive work kept us in the running through many a hard game. GORDON TAYLOR—“Gordy” was only a sophomore this season, hut with this years’ experience he should be hard to stop the next two years. DELBERT GLOVER—“Babe”, only a sophomore, is one of Paris’ hopes for future years. He likes to hear the net swish and knows how it is done. He should he a standout his junior and senior years. ROBERT BANDY—Boh came up the hard way and proved to he very valuable relief for Humerickhouse at center. Nice going. Boh. WARREN COLLIER—-Warren, captain of the 41-42 team, was the floor general and performed well on offense as well as defense. He will he missed next year. DAVID HUMERICKHOUSE—Dave filled Slim’s shoes very well and before next season is over he will make the best of them hustle. He is an expert in every phase of the game. NATHAN MIDDLETON — “Nate”, while holding down his forward position, made quite a reputation for himself with his clever hall handling and eye for the basket. Good work, Nate. GENE HANCOCK—Gene was a general handy man and a very capable one. He was the number one reserve and proved his worth on more than one occasion with his rebounding and accurate shooting. WILLIAM HODGE—Bill, another senior, filled in capably at guard this season and had a knack for making long shots go through. There’s a rumor going around that Bill learned his basketball from a certain girl in the G.A.A. PALL PEDERSON—“Pete” always shows plenty of fight and loves to win. He played at guard on the second team this year. His accurate spot shots and hard driving pulled 11s out of many tough games. YC’iiitinP f°r , u . doors to open at the Paris-Centralia game.

Kvcland opened his Cross Country season with practically all the 1940 championship team hack. The squad was rated as best in the state and probably the greatest team that Coach Eveland has ever turned out. Outstanding were Norman. Thomas, Swinford, Middleton, and Cornwell. Much credit must go to the rest of the squad for many excellent performances. In warming up for stiff competition to be encountered, the Tiger harriers traveled to I rbana. Paris emerged victor by 20 to 35 (the least number of points wins in cross-country). Next week Paris journeyed to Danville, being again victorious with a score of 17 to 38. The next team to fall before the now confident Tigers was Wiley. Paris placed six men in ten places to win 20 to 35. The following week end Paris entertained I rhana. defeating them 20 to 35. The Paris team defeated Danville on our own Tiger field the following Friday. M-though the Danville harriers were tough, the Tigers’ competition was too great, defeating Danville 18 to 37. In the oodruff Marathon classic at Peoria, Paris placed seven men in 25 places. This feat brought victory to the Tigers in a field of the hest teams in the state.

Although they dropped this meet, they were later success! ul against Casey, Charleston, and Newman in a quadrangular meet. On April 12, the Tigers were hosts at the annual Tiger Relays. Paris placed second, DuQuoin first. The next week the Tigers retaliated by downing Georgetown 77 to 35. The following week Paris chalked up 19 points to place sixth in the Indian Relays. The following Monday, I rbana and Danville offered competition in a triangular meet. The score was Danville 61, Paris 60. I rhana 30. The following week was extremely successful for the Tigers. They defeated Casey, won the E. I. meet, and placed fourth in the W abash alley. The Tigers climaxed their season by defeating Garfield of Terre Haute 72-32. and three days later several members of the squad traveled to Charleston T. C. for the district meet. In this meet, Staley in the pole vault, Norman in the mile run, and Hiinierickhouse in the low hurdles, earned state finals. Thus one of the best track teams produced by Coach Eveland in several years wound up a successful season. The Girls Hit . . .

Girls’ Physical Education J An interesting as well as beneficial course in the curriculum for the girls today is the physical training classes. These classes are made enjoyable and of help to the girls through our competent instructor, Miss Gisolo. The purpose of the course is to build up the girls characters in sportsmanship and other qualities which will make them good citizens. At tin beginning of the school year each class is divided into four squads, and a squad leader is chosen by the members. These squads compete against each other in the seasonal sports. In the fall the most popular sports are volleyball, soccer, and relays. Winter is the favorite season, for then the girls play basketball, which is by far the most popular of the sports. After the fundamentals of the game are learned a tournament begins between the class teams. The champions of the tournaments receive medals. The winners this year were the members of the senior team: Wilma Clem, Carol Sweeley, Jean Southard, Gernith Babb, Margaret Broadhurst, and Dorothy Kauffman. This year bowling was introduced and was greatly enjoyed. In the last season, spring, the outstanding sport is kick-pin ball. This game is similar to baseball. Other enjoyable spring sports are baseball, speedball. archery, and tennis. Tennis matches are held with neighboring schools to get in practice for tbp E. I. tennis tournament held at Casey at the end of the season. At this time, also, practice for the May Fete, which is given every year by the gym classes and instructed by Miss Gisolo, is begun. nGirls’ Athletic Association For amusement during the year, parties of various sorts are given. The most interesting party is for the initiation of the freshmen. Playdays are another amusement to which other schools are invited. This yearly program of the G. A. A. is planned and supervised by Miss Gisolo. In the last few years the girls have been taking an active part in the sports of P. H. S. Their athletic organization is known as the G. A. A. This organization resembles physical training in its aim and purpose, which is to improve the athletic ability, the health, and good sportsmanship of the girls. Membership in it is not compulsory; and there are many other activities to participate in. Although the girls join the G. A. A. for fun and to improve and promote their athletic ability, they also have an aim which they strive for. The aim of most girls is to win the honor of going to camp. To receive this honor the girl must win the highest number of points in her class. I he girls attending camp last year were Ger-nith Babb and Francis Blair, juniors; Klaudia Gerard, sophomore; and Barbara Sizemore, freshman. The girls also try to earn points to win awards. The sports offered by the G. A. A. throughout the year are speed hall, hockey, archery, tennis, basketball, bowling, and baseball. In the fall hockey, archery, speedball, and tennis are the principal sports. . . .Tlu Bull’s Eye.

Jack Goodrum, was so outstanding as to enter state competition at Champaign. Jack, however, was defeated by the championship play of a Champaign student. The one match won by Paris was over Newton, 4-3, May 20. Gerstmeycr, Casey, and the Laboratory School of Terre Haute each defeated Paris twice. Newton, Marshall. and Danville won one match each. Aspirants for the Tennis Team were: Jack Goodrum, Wayne Gordon, Robert Frey, Allen Switzer, Hilly Patrick, Phillip Hi ho, Steve Apgar, and Frank Owens. The Tennis division of the G. A. A. was more fortunate than the hoys’ Tennis Team. The girls, coached by the capable Miss Margaret Gisolo, sported two wins out of four contests, their victories being over Marshall and ( ]asey. Casey, however, defeated them in the E. I. League Tournament. In the remaining scheduled game, Wiley of Terre Haute won over Paris. Flic six members of the G. A. A. Tennis Team were: Wilma Clem, Dorothy Kauffman Carol Swceley, Jean Zimmerly, Barbara Sizemore and Mary Coleman. Next season promises to he more favorable, as none of the members are lost by graduation, and interest in the game is assured. Moss, Owens, Gordon. Goodrum. Switzer, Bibo. Tarkitt.

H. S. Although quaking with fear in the beginning, our fine spirit finally conquered and gave us courage to enter. Before long freshmen were found on the football field, on the track, and on the basketball floor. Athletic-minded girls joined the G. A. A. Others were found in the glee cluhs9 chorus, band, orchestra, and F. F. A. Nineteen freshmen were on the honor roll. With the aid of the sophomores, we presented three successful plays, “Alias Janetta,” uFive for Bad Luck,” and "The Marriage Proposal.” In our sophomore year, twenty of our classmen again won recognition in scholarship. Two plays were given jointly by the freshmen and sophomores, “Sunset by Slantsky, and “Midge Goes to the Movies.’ As juniors we went out for basketball. football, and track. Phil Bovard was elected captain of the track team. Some of us joined the riter’s Club; seventeen were on the honor roll. Our class play, “Little Women.” was a great success. Many juniors held the leading roles in the operetta “The Mikado.” We sponsored several dances and a movie to raise money for the Banquet and Prom, our tribute to the seniors. The senior year is perhaps the saddest and busiest year of high school, for everyone is trying to make each minute count. The first semester, twenty seniors were on the honor roll. James Smittkamp was accredited with being the most brilliant, his average being 95.5. However, Doris McGuinn and Margaret Broadhurst had an average above 95. Stewart Barr was elected captain of our football team, Warren Collier of the basketball team, and Wilma Clem of G.A.A. We presented a successful play and edited the Arena. After the baccalaureate ami commencement exercises, one hundred sixty-two seniors, armed with their diplomas and the will to work, left the never-to-be forgotten halls of Paris High School to go forth and find their niches.
