It is in reality a new frontier for the people of the Americas. It took a global war to make us conscious of our neighbors to the South. The favorite phrase now instead of "Go West, young man go West", is "Go South, Americans—go South of the Border and discover the Latin Americas." Now is the time for mutual understanding and cooperation—these friends come to our house for dinner and we go to theirs. We sit comfortably talking things over, and find to our mutual satisfaction that we are all Americans. Libro Uno Nuestra Escuela People of P. H. S.

Libro Tres Los Circulos Extra Curricular Activities Student Council Press Club The Arena Home Economics Club Future Farmers of America Industrial Arts Club Music—Vocal Instrumental Dramatics May Fete The Victory Corps CalendarLIBRO I LA ESCUELASCHOOL In general, education is one of the greatest needs of our South American neighbors. For instance, Brazil, which is larger than the United States, has only 700 high schools and the majority of children seldom attend more than two years of school. In Chile they teach only five main subjects, hygiene, agriculture, Chilean history, Chilean folklore, and civics. In Mexico the three "R’s" are secondary to the teaching of farming, hygiene, cooking, and sewing. Education is national defense in Costa Rica. They have more teachers than soldiers and it is one of the few real democracies where most of the people can read and write. The Uruguayans have one of the best educational systems in Latin America and it is compulsory and free. The University of Mexico, founded in 1553, is the oldest university in the western hemisphere.THEY KEEP THEM ROLLING R. Moss, B.S., M.A. Superintendent A friend to all students, his favorite work is keeping the schools rolling, but when he's not busy doing this you should watch him play chess or golf. His main hobby, however, is reading. BOARD OF EDUCATION Here we present the men of our advisory council. These men have directed our progress from the time we entered school. They are all interested in school and civic affairs, for we have represented on this board men who pursue a wide variety of professions and businesses in Paris.

We are all grateful to these men who have made it possible for us to secure the best educational opportunities. R. J. Cotton, M. J. Money, W. L. Cramer. KaH R. O'Hoir, R. L. Bell, and B. O.

Page EighteenSENIOR CLASS OF 1944 SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS President Malcolm Tucker Vice-President Thelma Smith Secretary Virginia Adams Treasurer Leo Swinford Adviser Miss Cleveland SENIOR CLASS HISTORY It doesn’t seem possible—why it was only yesterday that the seniors of '41 were sending us up to the attic for our English classes. Yes, that was when we were freshmen, with Miss Helen Murphy as our sponsor. We were scared of the teachers; of being late; of the upper classmen; of having to get permits; and oh, so many other things in this big awe-inspiring school. Remember how much fun the dances and parties were? We presented, with the help of the sophomores, the plays "Selma Goes Psychic" and "Major for a Day". That year didn't lost long and then we were sophomores (wise). No senior was better than we. The plays that year were "The Early Worm" and "The Auction". The freshmen won the ticket selling contest so we gave a pay-off party for them. We felt more at home by then. Some of our class-mates went to the Latin Conference at Normal, Illinois, that year. Our Junior year was perhaps the busiest. "Ever Since Eve" was our class play and it was a big success. A journalism club was formed and many of our members were active in Speech Club and sports. What a time we had when our team won the State Basketball Championship. We had the state champs right in our own school! To celebrate we had a whole day of pep meetings, snake dances, and a big Victory Dance that lasted all afternoon. Then came the big job of decorating the gym and we would never have succeeded without Mr. Shake's help. Those decorations were for the reception and Prom given in honor of the graduating class. That glorious night we were transformed like Cinderella into a fairyland of soft lights, sweet music, pretty dresses, flowers, and handsome boys—all in the atmosphere of a Southern garden. Thus ended another year, and we still had one to go. It has come, and is almost gone—the last year of our high school life. So many things have happened this year. A finance committee was elected to help with the Arena. They led the way in presenting a Carnival, school dances, a rummage sale, and various ways of making money. We seniors sold Christmas cords, show tickets, Arenas, candy, ice cream and pop corn. The Senior class play "Stage Door" was presented early this year and it was a really good production. We had the added feature of movies in history class. We've had lots of fun at Paris High, but we have missed those class-mates who have left to answer the call of their country. The list of persons we won't forget is endless, for we have many outstanding students in the senior class, and years from now we'll still be remembering "way back when".

O nward—forward they do strive. R esounding, eager, all alive. S eniors in 1945. After two years, finally upper classmen, we proudly endeavored to surpass all records set by previous junior classes and peered forward through the mist hanging over the world, preparing ourselves scholastically for the future. Boys, some with experience of years past, others trying for their first time, built the nucleus of the athletic teams. Our girls carried on social activities, joined the G.A.A., Pep Club, and other extra-curricular activities. We showed our dramatic talents in the very successful production of "Larry". The class ordered their treasured rings, supported and enjoyed other classes' activities as well as our own, and each individual aided the other to form a unity in the class. Many juniors have distinguished themselves in various school activities. Who can forget: Rosemary Bandy's, participation in activities and untiring ambition. Barbara Bibo's, personality plus and dramatic activities. David Bristow's, realistic hysteria in "The Moon Is Down." - Louis Carli's, state of perpetual glee and deviltry. John Cychol’s, lanky stature and innocent expressions on the hardwood. Pat Flanagan's, broad shoulders and incoherent remarks. T. A. Foley's, dry humor and quiet charm. John Hall's, lightning speed on the basketball floor. Mary Murphy's, sparkling wit in and out of classes. Caroline Sunkel's, langorous movement contrasting with natural intellect. Barbara Stewart's, inevitable procrastination and "cute" grin. Bob Sprague's, lovable protrayal of "Larry" in our class play. Larry Sweeley's, thrilling football performances with Pop sitting on the bench. Harriett Winans', bustling efficiency. "Franny" Wright's, sweet simplicity and devotion to basketball.

Pago Thirty-eightSOPHOMORE CLASS OF 1944 SOPHOMORE CLASS OFFICERS President Vice-President Secretary .. Treasurer . Adviser Shirley Eldredge Glada Hartwich Philip Bristow Robert Curl Miss Tate SOPHOMORE HISTORY In the fall of '43, we, the sophomore class, returned to P.H.S. with sharpened pencils and clean notebooks determined to learn how the Romans did it and what (if anything) Aristophanes had that Bob Hope lacks. We hold the record of being the largest sophomore class in the history of P.H.S. and therefore are quite active. Our budding young genii have attained honor-roll membership and noble sophomores are found in nearly every school organization. We started our social life off with a "bang’’ by successfully sponsoring a dance in honor of the football squad. Remember Glada singing "In the Blue of Evening" and "I Never Mention Your Name"? In October we showed the more serious side of our happy existence by bringing in more tin cans and pounds of paper than any other class, to win the scrap drive. Yes, we can be serious when the occasion calls for it. We are well aware of the world situation and understand the seriousness of it. We know what it means to have a friend or relative "somewhere at sea" or "over there". We realize that even we will be in the thick of it soon and we re getting ready for it. But as we re getting ready we re having fun and in years to come we ll remember the good times we had as sophomores at good old P.H.S. Two outstanding personalities whom we'll remember are Bob Cox and Bill Middleton, our star drummers. Have they got rhythm! Also classified in the rhythm section are Glada Hartwich, song-bird of the class, and Jim Brewster with his trumpet. We'll remember Shirley Eldredge too, who, although he isn't a miser, does like "Money" and Pat Wright who thinks life is just a perpetual "Cychol." We'll never forget Dot Kienast's giggle or Richard Mc-Kinzie's personality. They perfectly illustrate the statement "laugh and the world laughs with you". Who can forget Willard Pott's Latin recitations or the slightly eccentric "Red" Curl? These, to mention only a few, are the people we ll remember when in years to come we look back on 1944 A.D.

Max Wilhoit will no doubt go down in the annals of history as the history wizard of the class of '46 and Dick Hardy will probably be famous but we're not certain yet in which field he intends to shine. Bill Gibb will always be remembered as one of Miss Tate's star pupils—he was always being "saved by the bell.” "Ish-ka-bibble" Miller is personality plus both on and off the basketball floor and speaking of basketball, there’s Charlotte Shoaff, star G.A.A. forward. (Incidentally "Shoaffie" led the Sophs to the championship of G.A.A. basketball this winter. Just thought we'd mention it.) When it comes to pep we point to Mary Ann Whitton or Betty Frey who have plenty to spare and "Rosy" Downing proves the statement that gentlemen prefer blondes. We'll never forget Winnie Chenoweth’s brilliant (?) ideas and of course, the halls of P.H.S. wouldn't be the same without "Pete" Pedersen's cheery whistle. This year we've lost some members of our class and we've acquired new ones. To the former we say good-bye and good luck and to the latter—welcome. We hope you II enjoy the next two years as much as we expect to. Page Forty-threeFRESHMAN CLASS OF 1944 FRESHMAN CLASS OFFICERS President Vice-President Secretary Treasurer Adviser Geraldine Murphy Walter Steidl Audrey Brunsman Barbara Blanford Miss Church THE CLASS OF '47 On August 30th, 1943, one hundred and eighty-two eighth grade graduates registered as freshmen in Paris High School. We entered this new life with plenty of pep and ability to make our class a great success, one that we could really be proud of and say "I'm a member of the class of '47." We all had one common desire, and that was to obtain a better education. With that purpose in view we have worked all year and now we can say we are an established, promising class of P.H.S. To be sure, we suffered the customary freshman troubles. The first day of school we tickled the upper classmen's funny- j bone by asking what, to them, were positively dumb questions. And, then, of course, there was the traditional hazing. We have been laughed at and criticized about our rubbers and decorations, but we should worry, we will get even. We were, truthfully, rather gieen and bashful. However, after watching the older pupils in their work we soon became accustomed to the routine of high school life. After a month of high school life we elected our class officers under the direction of Miss Church, our class sponsor. After a day of suspense we were told the results. They were: Jerry Murphy, president: Walter Steidl, vice-president: Audrey Brunsman, secretary: Barbara Blanford, treasurer. As the school year advanced we became more conscious of the numerous clubs and activities which were calling for us to join them and we joyfully did. Our genii joined clubs of all types and went out for all the sports offered us. Many of our boys and girls were fortunate enough to be assigned to the glee clubs, while many girls joined the chorus. Some of our pupils joined the newspaper staff, and others, the Future Farmers of America and Girls' Athletic Association. Many of the boys went out for basketball, football, and track, and won the praise of the whole school because of their outstanding skill. Musically inclined members joined the bond and the Speech Club called forth the talent of those interested in the theater. All these extra-curricular activities did not hinder our ability to make good grades in whatever subject we took, algebra, English, science, Latin, industrial arts, speeech, none could stump us. All the members of this year's freshman class are now looking forward to next year when we will be sophomores and may again excel in every subject and activity offered us.

This year, several students were honored at the end of the first semester with honor roll buttons. Last year twelve students who received final honors for being in the upper ten per cent of their class were: Richard Foley, Martha Steidl, Barbara Tunnicliff, Nadine Brown, Jacqueline Moore, Beatrice Joye Hutchings, Donald Dickenson, Barbara Wright, Virginia Lauher, Betty Reed, Virginia Ewing, and Patricia Schille. Besides the Good Scholarship awards, we also have the D.A.R. Good Citizenship Award which was given to Martha Steidl last year and Jean Zimmerly this year.

Page Forty-eightLIBRO II LOS DEPORTESAtTVh l e t I c s The United States isn't the only American country where football is a great sport; in fact, in Buenos Aires the fans are so enthusiastic about soccer football that there is a wide water filled moat between the spectators and the playing field to keep the excited rooters from mobbing the referee, in Brazil, cock fights are prevalent and in Mexico they love a bull fight. There are numerous jockey clubs in Columbia ond in Argentina the girls and boys hardly know how to walk before they can ride a horse. They also wear white uniforms in Argentina because this means both rich and poor are dressed alike and they feel more democratic. In Venezuela they have baseball teams all over the country and state-wide athletic associations just like us. Bullfights are not so popular—they'd rather see a boxing match. They play very little basketball. Maybe some of our cadet teachers will some time teach the gringos to play this favorite sport of Paris, Illinois.PARIS LOOKS AT WITH ATHLETIC PRIDE SEASON FOOTBALL The Tigers opened the season with a spectacular game at Georgetown. After both teams had put up a hard fight, the game ended in a scoreless tie. The second gome was played at Urbana where the Tigers bowed to this veteran crew. The next week-end the boys stayed in Paris for their first home game and were hosts to Marshall. This game was not up to par for our boys, and Marshall went home victorious. After a week of hard practice, the team journeyed to Oblong for an E. I. League game. The boys really played a good game and redeemed themselves for the week before by winning 19-12.

Canty was the hero of this game by catching a pass and running 30 yards for a touchdown. Unfortunately this didn't count because of a clipping penalty. The boys were able to make a field goal and thus the score at the final gun was Charleston 6, Paris 2. A strong Casey team invaded Paris for the second home game. They got off to a crashing start by scoring in the opening minutes of play. Crabtree received an injury, and this took the spirit out of the Tigers, the final score being 33-6 in Casey's favor. On a cold, rainy night the squad traveled to Terre Haute to compete with a very successful Wiley team. The "Fighting Tigers" were in there, but in the final tally Wiley had scored 19 to Paris' 6. The eighth game of the season was a home game with Gerstmeyer as the guests— and victors. It was a disappointing game for Gerstmeyer did a lot of fumbling, but their club was too fast and experienced for our boys, and we lost 26-0. In our last game away, Hoopeston's aerial attack proved more than a match for our defense. Paris more than held her own in running ability and Larry made some great drives. Newton received a veritable trouncing in the final game of the year. "Rabbit" Allen started out with a bang by running the kickoff back for the first touchdown. Even the freshmen had a share in the game. Canty made a spectacular play. After receiving a pass from Allen he galloped another 30 yards to score for the victorious Tigers.

Clark.ROBERT CURL Sophomore Center Red played good ball all season taking the place of Rosenberg in case of injury. Red showed the making of a center for "Deac" on next year's starting eleven. JOHN CARLI Freshman Halfback John saw a lot of action this fall for a "freshie." With a little more knowledge of the game he'll be mighty "rugged." JAMES CANTY Junior End Jim was really "hot" on those passes and he played good ball all year. He will be one of Deac's pick for a tough team. PAT FLANAGAN Junior Guard Pat was always in there after his man, and he did a good job. With his experience he should be a main stag of the squad. JACK KENNEDY Junior End Jack played hard football all fall. His blocking and tackling were very good. He will be back next year, which will help strengthen the team. WEYMAN ALLEN Senior Fullback "Rabbit" was a good runner and carried the pigskin right through when he could get some blocking. He came up and tackled hard from his back position. Page Fifty-fivaIRVINE WEANT Junior Guard Red played good ball when he was mad—he should be that way more often. He'll be back next year and be one of the backbones of the team. MALCOLM TUCKER Senior Guard Mac played hard football part of the time. His blocking and tackling improved as the season progressed. BILL CRABTREE Junior Halfback Bill was especially good at punting— a great advantage to the team. His determination, speed, and line plunges were Bill’s long "suit.1' Bill deserves a lot of credit for this past year. HARLEY ROSENBERG Junior Center Harley did a good job of backing up the line on defense and did very well all season. He'll be back next year to have another crack at the opponents of P. H. S. DON BRINKERHOFF Sen !or Tackle "Tiny" was in on every play. He played hard football all season. No opponent was ever able to touch him. After the football season he left school because of the shortage of help on the farm. LARRY SWEELEY Junior Halfback Larry carried that pigskin with great determination and was always ready to try again. His punting was also good and brought the Tigers out of some tough spots. Look fcr him again next year. Page Fifty-sixDON CLARK Sophomore Halfback He took football seriously and played hard ball all season. He found that women and football don't mix and he chose the latter. BEN WAYMIRE Junior Tackle Ben was in there fighting all the time. If a man ran over him once, that was the last time for he would be back in there playing for his man all the time. PAUL RINESMITH Senior End Paul could play any position but was his best at left end. It was the passes that he snapped that counted for a lot of first downs for the Tigers. He played hard and did good work all year. TOM ENGLUM Sophomore Tackle He was a good boy to work with. He took his football seriously. He’s a good promise for Deac next year. BOB MURPHY Junior Halfback Bob played a tough back position all year. He was a hard blocker and tackier. With his ability he would make a good player next year. WALTER STEIDL Freshman Halfback With a little more practice Walt will be mighty in the backfield. He was aggressive and shows lots of the "old fight." He will be good material for "Deac" in the future. Page Fifty-sevenPARIS COES TO STATE AGAIN BASKETBALL 1943-44 This was a very good year for the team after they were started. The coach had to build this year's team from scratch, but, nevertheless, it was done and they went a long way. With the experience that the boys have now and from those that are coming back, the fans of Paris will expect a very good team for 44-45; so, boys, let's give it to them! PARIS HOLIDAY TOURNAMENT The first game of the tourney in which Paris participated was on December 27, 1943, between Paris and Villa Grove. The next gome was played between Paris and Clay City, in which Paris defeated them badly. The Tigers next met Jacksonville. Then came the game for the championship. This was fought hard between Paris and Edwardsville and was won by Paris with a score of 42 to 34. E. I. TOURNAMENT The E. I. Tourney was played this year at Casey. This year the Tigers were fighting hard to win this tourney for the sixth straight year. The first team that Paris played against was Palestine which was a victory for the Tigers with a score of 54 to 9. We played Casey next. This was a hord battle for the Tigers, but they come through with a good margin of 43-30. It next fell our lot to play Kansas which was not so easy but the Tigers defeated them with a score of 34 to 25. The last game of the tourney was played between Paris and Effingham for the Championship. Paris won with a score of 30-19. REGIONAL TOURNAMENT The Regional was played at Casey with most of the same teams competing that were in the E. I. Tourney. Paris went into the first round of this tourney with Charleston T. C. Paris won with a score of 57 to 22. Paris then played Kansas and defeated them 39-16. Paris moved into the finals of the Regional to play Casey. This was a very hard fought game from beginning to end. Paris won with a one point margin of 29-28. SECTIONAL TOURNAMENT The Sectional Tourney was played this year in the new gym at Paris for the first time. A group of good teams were competing for the championship that they might go to the state. The first game was played between Paris and Arthur which was a very close game with a one point lead at the end for Paris—45 to 44. The next game was to be for the championship. This was ployed between the great Robinson team, who had never been defeated this season, and the Paris "Tigers." The game came to o close with another win for Paris— 33 to 32. STATE FINALS Paris went to the state and met Kewanee in the last game of the first round of play at the state finals. This happened to be the end of basketball for the Paris Tigers for the year of 1943-44. Kewanee defeated the Tigers with a score of 36-34. FIRST ROW: Coach Eveland, Blair. Cochran. Swinford. Cychol.

Frazier.Bob Cochran—Senior Guard As captain, Bob is a smashing success. Swift of foot, he gets that ball down the floor. His ability to size up the situation has won many games. When it calls for stalling, Bob knows what to do. P.H.S. will suffer a great loss. Leo Swinford, Jr.—Senior Forward "Nick" is a mainstay in the Tiger squad. His left hand hook sho!s seldom go wrong. There was scarcely a game he didn’t come out high score man. "Nick" will graduate this year. John Cychol—Junior Guard Whenever there is a tough man to guard, John is right there. He is also handy with those long push shots. We have great expectations for John next year. Don Blair—Junior Guard Long shots are his specialty. Don. always full of fight, ploys the gome to the finish. Don still has another year. Robert Owens—Freshman Center Robert is a coach’s dream. As a freshman he made the team and shows unusual ability at handling the ball. With his height and ability, he should make a star center in years to come. Louis Carli—Junior Center "Louse" is a good ball handler and also a good clown. With more pracSice and experience he should make a good player. Bob Tait—Junior Forward Bob has shown a great many qualities that it tokes to moke a good basketball player. With more improvement he will be on the first five next year. Shirley Eldredge—Sophomore Guard Shirley displays excellent dribbling qualities and is a good shot. He is a dependable reserve. With his s ze and ability we have something to look forward to next year. Ben Waymire—Junior Center After the football season was completed, Ben enlisted with Coach Eve-land's cagers. His advancement has been very rapid. Page SixtyOF PARIS HIGH SCHOOL John Hall—Junior Forward John has been an old standby of the coach and fans. His ability to rebound and make those long shots made the going much easier for the Tigers. Harold Vietor—Junior Forward Vietor displayed quite a bit of speed and ability this year. Without a doubt he will be on top next year. Leon Miller—Sophomore Guard Leon lacked some experience for this was his first year out; nevertheless, his determination was great. This made him a tough opponent for rival teams. John Wilson—Freshman Center John has played basketball evor since he started to school. Ho ployed on the first team part of the year. You will see more of him next year. James Martin—Junior Forward "Slewfoot" takes things easy around school but on the gym floor he becomes an entirely different boy. Ho has played some good games. James Reynolds—Sophomore Center Although Jim is ineligible to play this year, he has gone ahead and practiced. His height is a helpful factor. Francis Drake—Sophomore Forward Francis is on outstanding reserve this year. He is a good shot and an all around player. John Frazier—Sophomore Forward John is a new member in Paris this year. He had ployed with Decatur previously. His scoring ability is excellent. Charles Deem—Freshman Guard Deem is another promising player to be only a freshman. His speed, size, and endurance should take him a long way in the coming years. Page Sixty-oneCoach, the first ten. and their year's crop of trophies.

Cross Country serves as a conditioner for the basketball boys. This explains why the Tigers can take more punishment on the basketball floor than the majority of the schools with which Paris has scheduled games. Since the nation is in turmoil at this period, Cross Country helps to make the boys better prepared to take the hard training given them in the early days of army life. It helps to moke the body vigorous so that it can withstand disease. Cross Country meets have been postponed for the duration. This pertains to the large meets in which the Tigers were engaged before the war. Eight boys are eligible each fall for a letter in Cross Country if they stay out for track, which is a spring sport of Paris High School.

These boys couldn't be stopped, for Dave Humerickhouse broke a record by running the low hurdles in 24 seconds while Max Norman broke a mile Charleston. The meet at Charleston on May 8 was the deciding point of the state competition. Max Norman, captain of the track team, was the only one to qualify. Norman finished third in the mile at the State Track Meet. record by doing it in 4.42 6 at the E. I. Track Meet. Paris placed second in this. Paris, however, captured the top spot at the Monti-cello Relays and then scored 68 1 8 points against Gerstmeyer's 46 7 8 in Terre Haute. The Tigers went on to win the Charleston Relays with the outstanding relay team of Taylor, Pederson, Humerickhouse, and Norman.

Archers just don't call them bull's eyes." Yeah? Well, I do!" "Who do you think will win the class basketball tournament?" "Gee, I hope we do!" "Wonder if you will get to go to G. A. A. Camp." That's right. Those are remarks heard from the field, archery range and girls' gym as G. A. A. got underway. Autumn and the rustle of falling leaves found the girls looking for tennis balls and playing a game or two in between times. Speedball and hockey kept shins in a pretty bad state, but twas fun. Many were the amateur archers on the range. Our girl athletes kept trim during the winter months by bowling, dancing and basketball. High spots of the season were the class basketball tourney, alumni game and initiation of the freshmen. FIRST ROW: Ewing, Zimmerly, Dickenson, Bornelt, Babcock, Wegar, Shaw, Lucas, Whitton, Humphrey.

Spring found everybody speculating on whether food rationing would keep us from having our annual G. A. A. banquet. Sports for the spring were softball, tennis and archery. Spring also brought forth the names of those chosen for G. A. A. Camp. Last year seven girls went, the largest number ever sent from P. H. S. They were: Jean Zimmerly, Dorothy Ewing, Mary Dickenson, Jessie Barnett, Pat Wright, Florence Moss and Glada Hartwich. Officers for the year were the following: President Jean Zimmerly, vice-president Charlotte Shoaff, secretary-treasurer Dorothy Ewing and recording secretary Jessie Barnett. Girls who had charge of the various sports were the following: Judy Money, Pat Wriqht, Bunny Gibb, Norma Frazier, Rosemary Bandy, Dot Kienast and Phyllis Ariens. Adviser of G. A.

FlanaganGOOD SPORTSMANSHIP AWARD The Good Sportsmanship Award is the dream of every athlete. This precedent originated in 1925 when U. Rae Colson presented a trophy to the school upon which the names of the winners were to be engraved. Before last year, one boy was selected from the football, basketball, and track squads. However, last year Mr. Colson offered to donate another trophy for football alone. After the war, a new trophy will be presented. Thus, both the football squad and the basketball and track squads will have their outstanding athletes represented. These candidates are nominated by the lettormen from each group on the basis of certain qualities suggested by Mr. Colson. The football squad nominated Malcolm Tucker and Weyman Allen. Basketball and Irack nominations were Robert Cochran, Leo Swinford, and John Cychol. Allen and Cochran were elected by the student body. These two boys were both outstanding athletes in their field and all around fair players. This year for the first time a medal will be given to the athlete having the highest average for the four years.

F. A. workers should go ho Mexico where only one-tenth of the land is actually tillable or to Brazil where less than one-fourth is farmed. Perhaps some of the boys would rather go to Argentina where women cannot vote, do not go to funerals, seldom dare go out alone, and where a single woman can be obstracized for walking down the street with a man. However, our movies are helping to break down this chaperon system so popular in South America. In Uruguay it is just the opposite; not only can people vote, but they are compelled to by law. I'm afraid our press club is not needed in Buenos Aires because it has some of the best newspapers in the world. Outside of the United States’ movies, very little has been said about drama in Pan America. Some of the Speech Club members would probably make quite a hit. Do they need you Home Ec. girls? Yes, because the standard of living in many sections is very poor and unsanitary. As for music, most all the countries like it, especially Mexico where they could hardly live without it. They have their traditional fiestas as we have our May Fetes. Their dances have become ours—the Rhumba, Congo, Samba—and what could we do without Xavier Cugat?STUDENT COUNCIL VERY ACTIVE Since this is its second year, the Student Council is a comparatively new organization in our high school. Elected each year, it is composed of twenty-four representatives, one from each of the Home Rooms, and a faculty committee of three: the principal, Mr. Forster, one elected, by the faculty, Miss Haas, and the third chosen by the Council, Mr. Hoke. As part of the representative body is the executive board, composed of the president, vice-president, the secretary-treasurer, and seven members chosen from each of the classes. It is the duty of the executive board to take definite action on the problems presented to the Student Council. The purpose of this group is to discuss suggestions made by the students, or originated by the members themselves, for the betterment or generol welfare of the school. In the Home Rooms each Thursday, the business of the last Council meeting is discussed and any new ideas are taken up by the representative in the next meeting. During the year, this body has sponsored several scrap drives and assembly programs. It created increased interest in the student recreation center, and the organization and sponsorship of the high school Victory Corps became a duty to be performed by the versatile Student Council.

The Press Club is a newly organized club for the benefit of those students who are interested in journalism. There are 20 members of the club who compose the staff of "Tiger Tales," our school paper. This paper is published once a month. The staff is divided into three groups: the editorial staff is under the direction of Miss Ruth Hohler; the typing and the mimeographing staffs are supervised by Miss Margaret Haas. To find a name for the paper the staff sponsored a contest. The winning entry, "Tiger Tales," was submitted by "Deac" Sweeley. The paper consists of school news, editorials, jokes, personals, a column for service men, sports, and features. They have exchanged papers with other schools and have thus gained many new ideas for improvement. This is a new venture for the students and we feel that they have done an excellent job. ★ STANDING: Wadsworth, M. Bouslog, Elam, Leitch, Butler, Sunkel, Babcock, C.

The name, suggested by Clifford Rahel, a sophomore of that year, itself is suggestive of the meaning, for as the arenas of the Middle Ages displayed the pageants of ancient Rome, so the Arena of P. H. S. records and reveals the events of the school year. In 1911 the publication was titled the "Pee Aitch Ess." From that time on, however, excepting "The Clarion," a quarterly magazine which replaced it in 1915-16, the Arena has been edited yearly. The success of these books has been due to the efforts of the faculty sponsors and the helpful co-operation of Miss Wenz and Mr. Forster. Miss Ella Slemmons, Mrs. Mildred Boland Dodds, Miss Effie Fansler, Miss Elsia Tate, Miss Zulu Z. Wright, Miss Betty Lou Hunter, Mrs. Mary Ida Riedell, Miss Maude Dorsett, and Miss Ruth Lindsey are teachers who, in the history of the "Arena," have taken the responsibility of its production. ★ SENIOR FINANCE COMMITTEE: Flanagan, Sunkel.

The club is an active group of Paris High, and it provides opportunities for the personal development of its members; a service to the school and community; and for active participation in inspiring home and family living. Interesting talks and demonstrations hove been presented to the club members during the year. Mrs. Helen Turner, Home Adviser, gave the first demonstration on Grooming; at another meeting we discussed "Hobbies." The girls hod a Christmas party where gifts were exchanged, and we held an outdoor breakfast early in May. Officers for the year were President, Mary McKinnon; Vice-president, Betty Wright; Secretary, Lola Gibson; Treasurer, Fern Ashley; Reporter, Joan Eldredge. ★BACK ROW: McKinnon. Wright. Wolls. Loymon.

Vocational instructors Sergeant-at-Arms Ben Waymire are mcmbers ° b'9 school staffs, and teach various sub- jects from manual training to the growing of crops and raising livestock. The F. F. A. colors are gold and national blue. The Paris Chapter is composed of 36 members and is headed by Don H. Hamilton. The chapter meets in the Paris High School once each month. At these meetings a program is presented, then refreshments, and games, generally basketball. The members of the Paris F. F. A. Chapter participate in a pest control each year. The members are divided into sides and each side gets so many points for each pest killed. The Paris Chapter has a treasury that is supplied by selling items such as garden seeds. The present and future of America depends to a great degree upon America's farmers of today—and tomorrow. FIRST ROW: Adams. V. Archer, W. West. L. Hamilton. Vietor. Davidson. Knight. D. Baird. Allen.

The club was organized November 12, 1943, and fifty members were enrolled. At the first meeting, the following officers were elected: President, Donald Beck; Vice President, John Cychol; Treasurer, Bud Sultzer; Assistant Treasurer, Tom Horton; Committee Chairmen, George Pratt and Harold Luttrell; Shop Activities, Donald Butler and Omer Heubel. The objectives of the club are to develop in each member an attitude of pride; to show interest in doing useful things; to develop an attitude of readiness in assisting others when they need help; and to join in group undertakings. ★ FIRST ROW: Morrisey.

Miss Nelson has replaced Miss Beeson, who was married early the first semester. After the roll has been taken, vocalizing begins—correct breathing, tone placement, and vocal exercises are stressed. The Librarian then passes out sheet music and the singing begins. As we listen to the Girls' Glee Club, we find that this group is evenly balanced and well adapted to three and four-part music which they ore practicing, much of their work being done with no accompaniment. A newly organized Girls' Sextette steps forward and presents a number for us. They have ably represented the music department quite frequently this year. Listening to the Boys' Glee Club, we realize the impact of the war since many of the songs learned by them are the songs of our armed forces. The members of the Chorus are working on various phases of choral technique. It is the aim of every girl in Chorus class to be promoted to Girls' Glee Club. With this goal in mind, much effort is displayed. Bringing our visit to an end, we realize that team work in music is as necessary as it is in any form of athletics. The morale of our music department is good. Talent, co-operation, and study are all blended together to interpret the lovelier things of life. Yes, the song is the thing! ★GIRLS' GLEE CLUB FIRST ROW: Thompson, Lindsey, Blonford. Frey, Moss, Martin, Chainey. Krueger, English. SECOND ROW: Adams.

Page Eighty-threeMUSIC HAS CHARM MR. WATERLOO The success of the orchestra and band has been due to the capable leadership of Mr. Waterloo, under whose direction it was first organized. He was born in Jumet, Belgium, but came to the United States at an early age. Ho has studied under many famous masters and at one time played under the baton of John Phillip Sousa. Although he sometimes seems abrupt and strict to newcomers, he is really a friend and has the loyalty of all his pupils. TWIRLERS FRONT: Honnold. BACK ROW: Ariens. Hollingsworth, Moore. Owens, Hill. 'A BAND PLAYS ON MANY DAYS Music? Yes, Sir! You can hear music coming from the new building at all hours. This music comes from members of the band who have gone over to the music rooms to practice during a vacant period. They really keep busy, too, because Mr. Waterloo always checks up on them. After all this practicing, the band can do some serious work when it meets on Tuesday and Thursday evening. This year the band has full symphonic instrumentation which is something no other Class B Band in this district has. During the year the band has become a regular feature at the basketball and football games. A lot of credit for the marching at football games goes to Bob Sunkel who is Mr. Waterloo's "right hand man.” Besides playing for the games, the band has played for other high school events and has provided entertainment fcr various local functions. Another feature by the bond is the annual Spring Concert which includes symphonic numbers, marches, solos, songs, and perhaps a novelty. FIRST ROW: R. Harpring. Bright. Downing. C. Knoisloy. K.

This year the club was under the leadership of president, Herbert Rehner; vice-president, David Bristow; secretary, Phyllis Knight; co-treasurers, Bob Sprague and Mary Murphy; and social chairman, T.

Dances of neutral, conquered, and allied nations were the rule of the evening. Scotch dancers, Irishmen, Indians, and ice-skaters mingled with Swedish mock-fighters, clowns and Russian dancers. A new innovation was the maypole dance using three poles, the eight little flower girls having a maypole all their own. The twenty clowns with their tumbling and pyramid building had everybody laughing. The finale brought an audience of approximately 3000 people to their feet as a huge, human flag flanked by two large V's for victory was formed having every girl in the junior and senior high school on the floor. Thus ended another of the P. H. S. traditional May Fetes. The queen and her court. The flower girls scatter rose petals for the queen. EVENTS OF SPRING ACTIVITIES Martha Steidl as maid of honor crowns Mary Ann Morris queen of the 1943 May Fete.PARIS COES ALL OUT FOR VICTORY THE VICTORY CORPS The Victory Corps is an organization composed of high school students who are contributing in various ways to the war effort. By helping in any of the following programs, the student is eligible for membership: Working for the rationing office: Junior Red Cross: contributing salvage material: purchase of war stamps and bonds; farm labor: military training, and pre-induction courses. It is estimated that at least 90 per cent of the student body is now eligible for the Victory Corps.VICTORY CORPS ORGANIZED In order that the student may best fit into these services, a comprehensive guidance service is proposed. This includes: 1. A reliable record of the individual characteristics of each pupil, as they relate to his usefulness in winning the war. 2. Comprehensive information about critical services and occupations requiring a type of manpower to which the present and future ef- forts of school pupils may be directed. 3. A counseling program which will help the pupil to fit himself into appropriate training for and participation in the war effort. 4. A practical plan for providing those three services, and the related supplementary activities. The students and faculty members of Paris High School have given their time and effort to the fulfillment of this program. n ’?SETw' our TUUljBUTMISEPTIEMBRE Principal A. C.
