Acrobats must practice the acts until they are timed perfectly to the split second. It is hard work, but it is worth it. Circus performers develop a certain persistency which urges them to keep trying harder to bring a performance to perfection. There is this bond between the circus personnel and good scholars. Both are striving for perfection and are not satisfied with half-done work. Good scholarship is recognized and honored in Paris High School.

If they perform their full function, they are to furnish the understandings, the competence, and the will for greatly improved human relationships in our own culture, for more understanding and intelligent relationships with the rest of the world, and for the creative transformation of atomic power into better living. They face a great crisis of opportunity. They may know now with certainty that their critical re-evaluation is in the near offing, that new demands will soon be made of them, and that a new and more complete dependence will be placed upon them. JOHN R. MOSS BOARD OF EDUCATION JOHN R. MOSS, B.S., M.A. Behind the gay medley of the circus there are a few serious-minded, indispensable men who work to make the show a success. Likewise we have in the board of education a group of public-spirited citizens, representing a cross-section of American life, working untiringly to solve the problems of the school and to make the educational system function properly. Mr. Moss is the Superintendent of Schools and works ceaselessly to keep the schools running smoothly. Mr. Moss feels that knowing students is the most interesting part of working in schools. He often attends school dances as a form of recreation. Also enjoys reading and a good game of chess. Left to Right: B. O. Luttrell, Raymond L. Kiier, Som Blair, Francis Hartwick, W. A. Bittner, P.

RINGMASTERS OF THE BIG TOP To the Students of Paris High School: Solomon once said, "Above all things get wisdom; whatever else you get, get understanding." Such advice was good in that ancient time; it is still good today. Knowledge alone is not enough. Students who go through school memorizing facts may, or may not, be getting understanding. They may even be able to manipulate, or reason with, the facts. This is better, but still it is not an indication of wisdom. As students in school, or as students in adult life, we must appreciate the usefulness of what we know; we must recognize the responsibility that is ours by virtue of the fact that we possess certain knowledge. Going still further, we must appreciate the responsibility to use our knowledge for good. It is commonplace, yet true, to say that ours is an atomic age. The words "atom" and "atomic" bring forth to the modern mind visions of almost unbelievable power; power for good or evil. The way this power shall be used will depend largely upon the wisdom and understanding of today's boys and girls, young men and women. Therefore, "Whatever else you get, get understanding." OTTO R.

We didn't know how much fun the dances and parties could be. We soon became accustomed to the new life and pitched in whole-heartedly to make the all-school carnival a success. Still more important, twenty-two members of the class made the honor roll the first semester. As sophomores we had long since entered into such activities as Speech Club, GAA, FHA, and FFA. The men were beginning to distinguish themselves as gridiron and hardwood heroes. On the more serious side, many were struggling with Caesar's battles harder than Caesar ever did, and some were neck deep in geometry problems. Scholastic honors were maintained. Sophomores began looking forward to the time when inferiority complexes would be swept away forever by the fact that we were upper classmen. The class was quite proud of the achievements during the junior year. Time and talents were distributed among the various organizations, proving the juniors an equal to any predecessors in all school functions. Under the able supervision of the CLASS faculty adviser, Mr. Ariens, we sponsored a Thanksgiving formal dance which was a popular event during the holiday season. Hard work and lots of fun were merged to make the class play, Seven Sisters," a credit to the producers. What wonderful times were had preparing for the junior-senior banquet and prom. How gratified the class felt when compliments were received from the seniors on the workmanship. One more year to go. It hardly seemed possible. At last we were seniors, but it was no easy job. We were very busy raising money for the ARENA, hoping to make the yearbook as interesting and entertaining as it had been in past years. "The Man Who Came to Dinner" was staged. A top performance was turned in by those who worked for the play's success. The football, basketball, and track teams provided many thrills. Returned veterans in the classrooms were a new sight. Everyone was glad to have them in school. The last four years have been kind to the class, and the Class of '47 shall never forget the good times and lasting friendships.MARJORIE ALSUP Friends coll ner "Shorty"; pet peeve is the assembly; hopes to become a secretary; favorite song is "One More Tomorrow"; enjoys the tricky acrobats at the circus.

Undoubtedly all were frightened by the thought of that first day. But somehow, after avoiding the upper classmen and the stories about the science room being in the attic, we pulled through. Miss Miriam Church, freshman science instructor, was the class sponsor, and helped the class accomplish a great deal during the school year of 1944 and 1945. Many attained honor roll rating and received orange and black pins. Some even fought for PHS on the gridiron and also on the basketball floor. Many freshmen became members of the school bond, the FFA, GAA, and Home Ec Club. Some classmates who were members of Speech Club had leading roles in the freshman-sophomore class plays. The class got off to a fine start and was proud of the freshman record. Seated: Hall and Beeson. Standing: Bishop and Knight. The next year we were sophomores and this proved to be another successful year. The first day of school the class sat on the first floor of the auditorium, and at last thought we had grown up. Miss Elsia Tate was the class sponsor and helped the class maintain the record made during the freshman year. Again many classmates were members of the different school clubs. Many sophomore boys brought honors to the class, as well as to the school by having outstanding ability on the football field, in track, and on the basketball floor. The sophomore class again came through with flying colors and big ideas for the next two years of the stay in PHS. Now, at last we are juniors and upper classmen. The year was started with selling magazines to raise money for the prom and banquet. With the help of the sponsor, Miss Annabel Scott, this magazine drive went over with a bang. Next, the different committees were chosen to make plans for the banquet and prom. The junior class play, "Nine Girls,” was another project of the class. A great deal has been accomplished in these past three years, and the class will be proud to graduate as the Class of 1948.Row One. Bristow, Beeson, Dovid, B. Clark, Cory, Calvin, B. Cummins, Camp.

Marked improvement as the class keeps going Onward, through the final years, Reaping rewards, suppressing fears. Eminent and truly sublime, Seniors, proud, in '49. That hectic freshman year having been completed, the sophomore class returned to Paris High School in the fall of '46 with a feeling of expectancy. What with football, basketball, track, cross country, class plays, dances, and numerous other activities, there was a lot to look forward to. The boys have shown the old fighting spirit in all athletic fields, giving the coaches a bright outlook for the next two years. The class is well-represented in the Paris Athletic Lettermen’s Club, the Future Farmers of America, Industrial Arts Club, and Boy's Glee Club. The girls, too, are helping to make the Class of '49 one to be remembered. Many have joined the Girls' Athletic Association, the Future Homemakers of America, and the Girls' Glee Club. The "forty-niners" are also lending a helping hand in such organizations as the Press Club, the school band, Speech Club, and Mixed Chorus. Various sophomore home rooms have sponsored dances which have been very successful. The play "Babbitt's Boy," presented by the sophomores, won second place in the inter-class contest in Speech Club last fall. Extra-curricular activities have taken a great deal of time, but by no means all of it, which is easily proved by one glance at the honor roll. With a common purpose and desire to prepare for .the years following high school, the sophomores have worked diligently at whatever subjects each may have taken—Latin, English, Spanish, geometry, his- tory, speech, or biology. Even such names as Aristophanes, Demosthenes, and Themistocles couldn't stump the "forty-niners." "Non scholae sed vitae discimus" might well be called a class motto, for all agree with Euclid that "Knowledge is worth gaining for its own sake," even if some may disagree that theorems and corollaries will ever be of much use. At present, becoming upper classmen seems a coveted goal, but years from now the Class of '49 will look back and remember with satisfaction and pleasure this sophomore year in good old PHS.

At first green and slightly nervous, the class soon entered into the spirit of high school life and proved to the upperclassmen that freshmen weren't to be the object of pranks. Of course, a few were tricked into going to the attic for general science class, and a few uncomfortable freshies were occasionally found going up the wrong side of the stairs. By the end of the first six weeks, the class was seasoned veterans. Many drew away from grade school acquaintances and made new friends in the upper classes. Row One: Sweelev and Reynolds. Row Two: Bess. Alexander, Young. The freshmen have shown much ability and versatility. Girls' and boys' athletic organizations have claimed many of the sports-minded members. GAA initiation was survived by the brave girls who looked much like circus side-show freaks in the get-up prescribed for them by the club members. Other members of the class ore distinguishing themselves in FFA and FHA; those with literary talent have found positions on TIGER TALES staff; and many of the dramatic members have appeared in Speech Club productions. Band, orchestra, and glee club have claimed the musically inclined members. Pride is taken in the fact that four twirlers are members of the Class of '50. Of course, it is realized that the main object in high school was to acquire an education and all these extra-curricular activities did not prevent us from getting a liberal dose of it. Latin and algebra were tackled with enough zeal to overcome anything. Time to doze in the assembly was occasionally found, or to watch the upper classmen diligently laboring over thick books. We didn't realize so many of the members were book lovers until the library slips came back filled with the names of freshies. And so high school life was off to a flying start, and the class expects to keep up the good record the next three years. Linder the capable guidance of the sponsor, Carl Jones, and the officers, Norman Bess, president; Donald Alexander, vice president; Jerry Sweeley, secretary: and Mercer Young, treasurer, it is intended to make the Class of 1950 one to be remembered in the years to come.Row One: Hippie, Krabel.

COACHES Coaches Don Sweeley, football, and E. W. Eve-land, cross country, basketball, and track, head the athletic department of Paris High School. Coach Eveland has been in Paris for twelve years. Coach Sweeley came to Paris in 1936, and has been here, except for a two year lapse. Paris is fortunate to have two such capable men. MANAGERS An important part of the athletic teams is the managers. They tape ankles, collect loose basketballs, take care of football equipment, and do other odd jobs. The managers for 1946-1947 were Joe Sims, George Churukian, John Taylor, Floyd Garrett, Ronald Rule, and Jim Stephens. Left to Right: Sims, Churukian, Taylor, Garrett, Rule, Stephens.IN PHS SPORTS CHEER LEADERS The Paris High School student spirit is symbolized by the cheer leaders. Elected for 1946-1947 were Tom Rule, Dona Rode, and Alice Bristow, seniors; and Jocque Wright, sophomore. Cheer leaders are a very important part of the athletic system, for the yells they get from the crowds help inspire victories. TWIRLERS AND MAJORETTE This colorful group of girls performed this fall before the home football games, leading the band about the field, and doing twirling acts between halves. The twirlers were Virginia Ashby, Wanda Cameron, Betty McEvoy, and Betty Rigsby. The majorette was Barbara Cameron.

PHS HAS COLOSSAL FOOTBALL Paris 6—Tuscola 6 Friday the thirteenth was a jinx night for the Tigers. Early in the second quarter, Walt Steidl romped 20 yards around end for the only score. With the game apparently won, and only four minutes left, Tuscola scored on a long pass. Both teams missed the extra point tries. Paris 6—Marshall 6 Marshall took the opening kick-off and proceeded to march downfield for 8 first downs and a touchdown. The rest of that half Paris was pushed around badly. But in the third quarter, Jack Roberts, PHS center, intercepted a Marshall pass and galloped 45 yards. Ronnie Beeson plunged over for the tying tally. Paris 18—Oblong 6 In the first quarter Steidl sprinted 35 yards off tackle for a touchdown. Again in the second quarter Steidl went off tackle for 65 yards and a touchdown. In the third quarter, Oblong blocked a Paris punt for a touchdown and made the game interesting once again. However, on a long march, Paris drove over with Beeson scoring. Once again the Tigers failed to make the extra point. Paris 25—Charleston 0 Paris, dealt a severe blow by the loss of Right End Robert Waller, a victim of the polio epidemic, struck hard and fast against an old enemy. Ronnie Beeson and Walt Steidl each scored twice in this Row One: Runyan, Yontz, Levings, Bell, Edwards, Acklin, Sweeley, Kroenung, Collenberger, Coach Sweeley.

This was the best football the Tigers displayed all season. Paris 0—Areola 0 Battling the second Okaw Valley foe, once again Paris came out with a tie game. In a grueling defensive game, neither team seriously threatened to score. Outstanding in the PHS ranks was Charles Deem, the star lineman. Paris 12—Casey 13 At Casey, Paris acquired the first defeat. On the first play of the game, Steidl ran 45 yards to the Casey 10. Then Jack Waggoner ran around end for the first touchdown. After being held scoreless in the second quarter, Paris again broke Steidl loose for a touchdown on a 78-yard jaunt around end. With a 12-0 lead, and everything apparently safe, Casey scored twice in rapid succession, the second on an intercepted pass. However, the Tigers scored again on a long pass from Campbell to Cummins, but it was nullified by a penalty. Paris 0—Robinson 34 Paris met in Robinson, winner of 31 consecutive games, a virtual stone wall. Playing before one of the largest crowds ever to assemble at the Tiger field, Robinson ran up 17 first downs to Paris' 5. Deem again performed brilliantly for Paris. Paris 0—Newman 18 While the Tigers were digging claws into the deep mud, Newman scored three quick touchdowns in the first half. Although Newman was held at bay the second half, Paris was unable to score, or even threaten to do so. With this game, Paris once again concluded a season of football. Robinson back stopped by three Paris tacklers. 1946-47 SCHEDULE Paris 6 . . . Tuscola Opponent . . 6 6 . . , . Marshall . . . b 18 . . . Oblong , . . . b 25 . . . Charleston ... 0 0 . . .

His rugged play, both on offense and defense, will be missed on next year's eleven. Sanford Levings—Junior End Though tiny, Sam played right in there with the big boys. With this year's experience, he will be tough to handle next year. John Graham—Senior End John is one of those boys who really likes to play football, and got to see considerable action this year. Paris needs more like him. John Powell—Junior End J. B. was the regular left end, and the wit of the squad. Being tall he grabbed many a pass from out of nowhere. He'll be back in there again next year. Gerald Ashley—Senior Guard "Jed" was small, but worth his weight in gold when it came to that all important downfield blocking. Fine work wen him a regular berth on the first team. Charles Deem—Senior Tackle An all E. I. League selection ot guard as a junior, Charley repeated on this mythical team again this year at tackle. Hard driving tackles and sharp blocks make him a real champ.p HS SUPERMEN Jack Asher—Senior Tackle Jack had some hard luck with injuries at the first of the year, but nevertheless, this couldn't dampen a fighting spirit. Bill Givens—Senior Tackle Bill ployed fine football this year, even though he was handicapped by lack of experience. Walter Steidl—Senior Back Walt was an E. I. League selection for quarterback on the first team. A ferocious tackier, excellent field general, and broken field runner, Walt's loss will be felt next year. William Bailey—Senior Back "Junior" was one of the best tacklers on the team, and in spite of smallness, was used as a No. I reserve line backer. A salute for Junior, please! Robert Waller—Senior End Bob played regular right end until he was stricken with polio after the third game. He played a hard, determined game, and his loss was a real blow to PHS. Ronald Beeson—Senior Back Ronnie moved to Paris from Crawfordsville this year. He was a triple threat star, excelling in punting, passing, and running. Deac will have a hard time replacing him.SUPERMEN OF PHS Charles Wishart—Junior Guard "Chuck" kept improving every game. His fine determined game has won everybody's admiration. PHS has a good line prospect here. Jack Roberts—Junior Center "Tony" was the regular center all year, and because of fine playing, was elected the captain of the 1947 team by the squad at the end of the season. Jack Waggoner—Senior Back Jock played a determined brand of ball. Blocking was especially good, thus making him o valuable wing back. Paris will miss him! Robert Alexander—Junior Back Bob used his size to good advantage, and put all he had into every game. Bob was good both offensively and defensively, thus a valuable asset to the team. John Gilbert—Sophomore Guard John did a remarkable job considering this was the first year out. Watch him, he's going to go places! Foster Campbell—Sophomore Back Though just a sophomore, "Soupy" started practically every game this season. A fine runner and passer, Coach Sweeley can expect great things from Foster during the next two years. Allen Rinesmith—Junior Tackle Just discharged from the service, Allen stepped into a regular tackle spot as soon as he became eligible. His fight and determination helped the team immensely. George Fowler—Junior Back Lightning fast, "Honest George" made a long end run in practically every game. Even though he's little, George doesn't let this stop him. Verlon Cummins—Junior End "Jonnie" was inexperienced at the start of the season, but as time progressed he learned some of the tricks. Now PHS' opponents hod better beware. Steidl is stopped by Charleston City taclclers.BASKETBALL We of Paris High School are most proud of this year's basketball team which won the STATE CHAMPIONSHIP. Not only are they State Chomps, but have been acclaimed by many of the experts who saw the team in action as one of the best high school basketball teams ever seen. The Tigers played a total of 42 games and won 40 losing only to Waukegan by the score of 41 to 35, and later on dropping a 34 to 33 decision to Danville. Paris scored a total of 2469 points in their 42 games for a record breaking average of 58.78 points per game. The Tigers' defense was also brilliant as it allowed the opponents to score only 1342 points for an average of 31.95 points per game. This gave the Tigers an average margin of victory of 26.83 points per game. This year's cage team was truly a great team depending on no one boy to carry them through. Bob Owens, lanky center on the Paris team for four years, was the captain of this year's fine aggregation while John Wilson, Glen Vietor, Dow Morris, Don Glover, Ronald Beeson, Max Wilson, Dick Henson, Ronnie Cummins, and Fred Blair made up the remaining tournament ten. Coach Ernest Eve-land kept such boys as John B. Powell, Eli Humerick-house, Dean Bishop, Verlon Cummins, Foster Campbell, Karl Farnham, and Bob Waymire on the squad during the tournaments as all were capable players. The Tigers opened the season late last fall with a resounding 65 to 24 victory over Hutsonville, and it looked as if the team was off to a great year. But the very next game they traveled to Waukegan where they were bumped to the tune of 41 to 35 for the first defeat. From that time on the Tigers launched a victory drive that eventually ended at Danville in mid-February with a 34 to 33 setback. The Tigers had won 27 consecutive games between losses, and this was to be the longest winning streak compiled by any team in the state this year. They had beaten such teams as Tuscola, Indianola, Greenup, a very strong Washington High outfit from East Chicago, Indiana, Salem, Oblong, and Canton. Then came the Holiday Tournament. The X'9ers won over Teutopolis, Altamount, Dupo, and Morton of Cicero to win the championship trophy. Starting the new year off on the right foot the Tigers continued to lengthen the winning streak by beating Casey, Vandalia, Marshall, Kansas, and Charleston T. C. Then came one of the big games of the year when Robinson invaded the Paris gym, and the Tigers displayed championship basketball to beat the Maroons 58 to 42. They then continued along their merry way by winning over Charleston City, Effingham, and Lawrenceville. Paris vs. Robinson. Paris vs. Altamount.Row One: Coach Eveland, B. Eveland, L. Eveland.

Next came one of the biggest games of the year as they entertained last year's champions, Champaign, and Paris flashed a brilliant brand of basketball to win 57 to 39. The Tigers were rated the number one team in the state by this time, and they kept going by defeating West Aurora and Georgetown. The Tigers then let Danville slip up on them to hand them a 34 to 33 loss. The Tigers stumbled slightly at this point and had a difficult time in beating Flora 38 to 31 the next week, but then they started to come back and beat Bridgeport 55 to 36. The Tigers demonstrated that they were completely back on their feet in the final game of the season by beating a highly rated South Shore team of Chicago by the score of 62 to 48. Paris went into the regional with Dow Morris sitting on the bench with an injured leg and Don Glover playing in his place. The Tigers beat Newman 56 to 34, looked better as they whipped Charleston City 74 to 30, and won the championship by beating a stubborn Kansas outfit 56 to 33. The Tigers were sent to Charleston for the sectional tournament and in the first game they almost tore the nets off as they blasted Litchfield 83 to 27. But in the title game the following night Paris was just the opposite as they couldn’t hit the basket. It looked dark for the Tigers as Mattoon lead by 6 points with 7 minutes left to play, and Bob Owens nnd John Wilson out of the game. But, like true champions, the Tigers fought back and finally took the game and the championship by the score of 36 to 34. So it was on to the State. Paris met Beards-town in the first game Thursday afternoon and the Tigers, with Morris back in the line-up for Max Wilson, looked great as they won 70 to 33. In the second contest Paris had to play South Shore again. The Tigers weren't to be denied as they beat the Chicago team 49 to 37. Paris had the toughest game in the semi-finals on Saturday afternoon as they played hard, steady basketball to beat a surprise Pinckneyville quintet 57 to 50. Thus Paris reached the Championship game where they once more had to play a strong Champaign crew who were trying to make this the second straight State Championship. But the Tigers were at their best that final night, and after the first few minutes Paris took the lead and slowly increased that margin until the final gun had sounded. Paris was once again the STATE CHAMPIONS. The score was 58 to 37.GIGANTIC RECORD BASKETBALL SCORES Regula r Schedule 1946-7 Paris 65, Hutsonville 24 Paris 35, Waukegan 41- Paris 52, Tuscola 23 Paris 36, Indianola 21 Paris 47, Greenup 24 Paris 44, Washington High of East Chicago, In - diana 33 Paris 35, Salem 18 Paris 95, Oblong 32 Paris 66, Canton 36 Paris 85, Casey 25 Paris 46, Vandalia 40 Paris 90, Marshall 23 Paris 51, Kansas 26 Paris 64, Charleston T C. 26 Paris 58, Robinson 42 Paris 52, Charleston City 29 Paris 69, Effingham 34 Paris 70, Lawrenceville 38 Paris 57, Champaign 39 Paris 62, West Aurora 28 Paris 63, Georgetown 46 Paris 33, Danville 34 Paris 38, Flora 31 Paris 55, Bridgeport 36 Paris 62, South Shore of Chicago 48 Paris Holiday Tournament Paris 70, Teutopolis 14 Paris 51, Altamount 33 Paris 34, Dupo 25 Paris 41, Morton of Cicero 40 Eastern Illinois League Tournament Paris 78, Toledo 29 Paris 86.

Tigers meet Champaign on home floor.TERRIFIC TIGERS Jack Roberts—Junior Guard Playing guard, Tony played in several reserve team games. The same fighting spirit, he displayed on the football field was his main ability on the cage floor. Ronald Cummins—Junior Guard A small, speedy guard with an eye for the basket which was almost unbelievable. Ron starred on the reserve team this year and will be a leading candidate for a place on next season's five. Verlon Cummins—Junior Forward Left handed basket ace with plenty of speed and ball handling ability, Jonnie sow action in the reserve games. Like his brother, Ron, Jonnie is only a junior.

Foster "Soup" Campbell— Sophomore Guard Only a sophomore, this tall, blonde boy is a mighty fine prospect. He has a good one hand shot that is hard to guard and is good on defense. Norman "Red" Bess— Freshman Forward Only a freshman this year, "Red" saw a great deal of action in the reserve games. He is a good rebounder and an excellent shot under the basket.

He has the fight and spirt that makes him a very good rebounder and all around player. Bob Waymire—Junior Center Bob ran into tough luck last year and was forced to drop out of school for a year due to ill health. He started back this semester and displayed some mighty fine basketball ability under the basket. Karl Farnham—Junior Forward Ineligible in the first semester, Karl broke into action in the second semester and proved to be a real threat, especially under the basket. He shows mighty fine promise for the future. Dean Bishop—Junior Guard Dean saw action on the reserve team this year. Speed and fighting spirif proved to be two great assets. Dean is only a junior and so will be back next year. Dick Henson—Junior Forward A fast, hard driving, fine defensive ace, Dick saw much action as a member of the first five. Playing forward or guard, this versatile player should be very valuable next year. J. B. Powell—Junior Center Another junior who played center on the reserve team. J. B. is a rugged rebounder and a good man under the basket. He will be fighting for the center spot on next year's team.TIGERS Robert "Bob" Owens—Senior Center Bob is one of PHS' outstanding basketball ployers.

A very clever ball handler, good shot, and strong defensive man, Bob climaxed a high school career by being captain of this years great team, and by being named all-state center. Glen Vietor—Senior Forward Glen proved to be a valuable asset to the Tigers. Strong rebounding ability and uncanny accuracy for the basket always came in handy. PHS losses another fine basketball player. Glen climaxed the year by being named all-state forward. John "Bus" Wilson—Senior Forward One of the first five. From his second year on, "Bus" was one of the most steady, dependable cage players this season. Playing forward, Bus" was an excellent shot and a good rebounder.

The boys made ten starts and ten wins to win the state championship. The team elected George Twigg captain and traveled to Wiley for the first meet. Led by the captain, who made a new record by running the course in 8:04, they placed seven out of the first ten men. They won by the score 22 to 33. In cross country the team with the lowest points wins. The next meet was a class meet in which the juniors came out on top with 16 points, the sophomores were second with 52 points, and the freshmen and seniors were disqualified. Paris played host the next week to Champaign and Charleston City. The flying Tigers placed six men before Charleston or Champaign were able to place one. Paris won with the lowest score by which it is possible to win a meet. The final score was Paris 15, Champaign 45, and Charleston 56. Lawrenceville was the next victim of Paris. Law-renceville was only able to place one boy in the first 16 places. Consequently Paris came out with another victory with the score of 16 to 38. Wiley, in return for our trip, came over here to get another beating. Paris placed the first five men and won by the score of 15 to 40. Paris traveled to Indiana to a triangular meet with Gertsmeyer and Wiley. Paris placed Twigg first, Irish second, Humerickhouse fifth, Stephens seventh, and Mason eighth to win by a score of 23 to Wiley's 37, and Gertsmeyer's 60. This was the third time that the Paris squad dealt Wiley a defeat. Paris then made a return trip to Lawrenceville. Over the mile and a half course Paris again brought in five men before the opposing team was able to score. Again Paris won by the score of 15 to 40. The close of the season was coming up and the district meet was here. The district was held at the Paris Country Club on November 9, 1946. Six teams were eligible but only four came. They were Paris, Champaign, Charleston City, and Bismark. Paris came through again by placing six men before any other team was able to place. The first six in order were Captain Twigg, Elam, Irish, Humerickhouse, Mason, and Stephens. The final scores of this meet ore as follows: Paris first with I 5 points, Champaign second with 62 points, Charleston City third with 83 points, and Bismark fourth with 105 points. Individual medals were received by the boys.STATE CHAMPS COUNTRY Next came the grand finale, what all the boys had dreamed about and set forth as their goal, the state meet. Coach Eveland picked what he thought were the most capable boys. He gave the nod to these boys: Captoin George Twigg, Bob Irish, Eli Humerickhouse, Earl Elam, Jim Stephens, and Harold Holloway who are all underclassmen. The Paris team in this meet again became victorious over all the rest of the sixteen teams. Here George Twigg was beaten for the first time. He received the only medal given a Paris man which was second place medal. Twigg ran the two-mile course in 10:09. Bob Irish received eleventh place, Bob Mason ran fourteenth, Eli Humerickhouse placed twenty-ninth, Earl Elam was thirty-fourth, Jim Stephens took forty-first and Harold Holloway ran fifty-first. The first nine teams and points are as follows: Paris, 90: Lane of Chicago, 115; La Grange, 115; Harrison of Chicago, 147; Bloom of Chicago, 149; East St. Louis, 218; Moline, 249; Christopher, 268; LaSalle, 289. This is the way a great year ended, with these seven boys triumphant over all other schools in the state. These boys won a state championship for Paris High School. With all these boys back again next year, another great cross country season is expected. Twigg and Humerickhouse hold their own against Charleston ond Champaign. Row One: Mason. Soughers, Holloway, Utterback. Clark. Walters. Stephens, Elam, Gibson, Tolen, Vaughn. Row Two: Henson, Littoral, Morris, Bishop, J. Wilson, Cummins, Blair, Hamilton, Stewart, Owens, Mr. Wilson.

TRACK Choosing Shirley Eldredge and Willard Potts as their co-captains, the 1946 Paris High School track team went to work early in March to make this team one of the best. A week after the basketball season was finished Coach E. W. Eveland staged his traditional class track and field meet which the sophomore class won. The seniors had to be content with second place, while the juniors were third and the freshmen were in fourth place. A short time later the official track season got underway with a dual meet against the perennial strong Wiley team from Terre Haute and the Hoosiers came out on top with a 6 |l 4 to 49 3 score. But it wasn't long before the Tigers found their winning stride as they next battled Casey and rolled up 60 points to Casey's 53 for the first victory. Coach Eveland only sent a few to participate in the great Urbana Open but Paris managed to do quite well as George Twigg won first in the 880 and Willard Potts took second. Twigg also took second in the 440 yard dash while Potts placed fourth in the mile. In the field events Dale Watson placed third in the discus throw and tied with Bob Elledge for top honors in the pole vault. The Tiger thinclads rolled up their largest dual meet score against Charleston City by winning easily 97 to 16. The same week they played host to 24 schools in holding tne Annual Tiger Relays and our Tigers finished a close second to Belleville. The next Saturday afternoon the Tigers traveled to Lawrenceville where they participated in the Indian Relays. Vincennes won this meet with Wiley placing second and Paris coming up third. Row One: Peterson, Tolen, Blair, Walters. J. Frazier, Humerickhouse, Victor, Watson, Curl, Twigg, D. Eveland, Glover, Alexander, Allen, Eldredge, Davidson, Fowler, M. Wilson, Coach Eveland. Row Two: Mumbower, Roberts, Gilbert, Bishop, R. Cummins, Campbell, Waggoner, Owens, Elledge, Deem, McCrocklin, Irish, Givens, Stephens, L. Hamilton, Wilhoit, J. Wilson, Garrett. Row Three: E. Frazier, Rhoads, Hutchings, V. Cummins, Henson, Morris, Sexton, Money, Johnson, Hiatt, Phillips, Zone, Mason, Stewart, Litteral, Farnhom, E. Hamilton.TRACK MEN The Tigers won their first major meet the following week when they went to Charleston and won the Eastern Illinois Track and Field Meet. Coach Eveland sent his second team to compete in the Mattoon Relays and they were only able to place in one event—fifth in the two mile relay. In the first freshman-sophomore triangular meet of the season, the young Tigers won easily over Charleston City and Charleston T. C. The next week Paris invaded Indiana for two major meets but the Tigers could do no better than fourth at the Linton Relays and second in the great Wabash Valley Track Meet held at Terre Haute. Our Tigers then beat Robinson in a dual meet and then prepared for the District meet to be held at Mattoon. In this important meet Paris placed second to Mattoon. Three Paris boys—George Twigg, Willard Potts, and Bob Elledge—qualified for the State Track Meet. Twiggs won the 880 yard run while Potts placed second in the mile and Elledge was second in the pole vault. The next Tuesday night the Paris Freshman-Sophomore Relays were held with our young runners placing second to Casey in this growing meet. Two days later the freshmen traveled to Mattoon where they lost in a dual meet. The following Saturday George Twigg and Willard Potts traveled to Champaign for the State Meet. Bob Elledge also hod qualified in the pole vault but he had injured his leg and this injury kept him at home. Willard Potts was the first to run at Champaign and he did not place in this stiff competition. Thus it was up to George Twigg, sensational Paris High School sophomore, to climax the athletic year at PHS by winning the State 880 Yard Run Championship. Tigers take second in the Tiger Relays.AGILE ACROBATS Seated: Potts, Fitzgerald, Doalc. Standing: Emery, Kennedy, Brunsman, Ashley, Judy, Allen. G. A. A. "Important meeting of GAA members — oil freshies invited." The call was met by many who fully realized the importance of GAA in extra-cur- ricular activities. It was a chance to display ability, sportsmanship, and comradeship. The annual initiation wos held in the latter part of November. Strict obedience to full-pledged members was stressed. Although the costumes caused embarrassment, the pledges were proud to know that they formed an important part of the Girls' Athletic Association. A different procedure was exercised this year on the final night of initiation. At an impressive candlelight service, the pledges were shown the purpose and deeper meaning of membership in the organization. The object of the GAA is to stimulate interest in girls' athletics and to promote ideals of health and sportsmanship. Realizing that tomorrow GAA girls will be a part of the men and women who must carry on the ideals and standards of the nation and race, girls must be prepared physically as well as mentally and morally. To carry on these responsibilities, a sound mind in a sound body is a vital factor. In the sports and activities which the GAA offers, an opportunity is given to each girl to develop a strong, healthy body. Girls in the high schools throughout the state are bound together by ties of mutual interest and friendship which will carry over for years to come. Every hour there is a call for the spirit of sportsmanship. Each day there arises the question of fair play. Girls of the GAA stand for all that is highest and noblest, therefore, seeking daily to hold high these ideals so that a worthy example shall be set for those who look for guidance. Fall sports were tennis, softball, and archery. Recreational sports such as shuffle board, darts, badminton, and peteca were offered in the winter. Later on in the year volley ball and basketball Row One: Miss Simons, Tolliver, Stacy, Perry, Twigg, Hought, Emery, Judy, Doalc. Row Two: Allen, Stahler, Stotts, Van Gilder, Lamb, Mason, Weber, Walden. Row Three: Sudduth, Kennedy, Ashley, Fitzgerald, Potts, Trotter, Brunsman. OF C. A. A. were popular sports. Girls who had charge of the various activities were the following: Audrey Brunsman, Judy Quinn. Ruth Grable, Mary Lou Baker, Gladys Judy, and Naomi Kennedy. Officers who assisted Miss Simons are Mary Martha Fitzgerald, president; Suzanne Potts, vice president; Patricia Emery, secretary-treasurer; Ann Ashley, business manager; and Frances Doak, point manager. Badminton equipment, peteca birds, dart boards, and four new basketballs were added to the line of equipment. GAA sent Ruth Grable, Audrey Brunsman, and Judy Quinn to summer camp at Lake Bloomington, Bloomington, Illinois. At the end of the basketball season, the girls' gym classes elected one girl from each class for outstanding sportsmanship. These girls are selected because of fairness to and consideration of teammates, opponents, and the officials. They have shown co-operation with team and class activities. The following girls were elected: Ann Vidito, Patricia Myers, Hazel Pitts, Dorothy Martin, Frances Doak, and Louise Perry. GAA girls demonstrate the rosette. Rocking horse proves exciting. Opening of the rose. An exciting moment in peteca. Watch the birdie! Ready for the tip.

The Council has been functioning steadily since it first came into existence in 1943. The Student Council consists of representatives from each home room, and two faculty advisers, chosen by the Student Council. A representative is elected from each home room the third Thursday of September of that school year. Through power granted by the principal, the Council promotes the general welfare of the school and provides opportunity for student cooperation and participation in the management of school affairs. One of the Council's more important projects this year is that of clearing up the method of selecting cheerleaders. After it has been discussed COUNCIL thoroughly, between the Council and home rooms, it will then be presented at a Council meeting, discussed further, voted upon, and if a majority is for the bill, it is passed and then taken to the principal for his approval. If the bill is not vetoed by the principal it will go into effect after his signature is affixed. Another project for the betterment of the school undertaken by the Council is the setting up of a standard that all officers of any school clubs or organizations, should maintain a "C" average. This means that before anyone may be nominated to hold any office, he must have a "C" average. The Council has also newly organized a pep meeting and dance schedule committee. The Student Council has charge of pep meetings. They see to it that different clubs and faculty members help in putting on a successful pep meeting. Also, all clubs or home rooms who plan to have a dance, must register two weeks before the date of the dance. The registration is made with the committee chairman of scheduling dances. The officers this year are: Jerry Murphy, president: Albert Gleason, vice president; Deane Scanlon, secretary; Nancy Harris, treasurer. The Paris Student Council will be host to the Shelbyville District of Student Council for the district meeting next school year. Shelton Frey will head the district as president.

One of them was destined to be murdered by her sorority sister. On the evening of February 21, this murder was enacted by the juniors before a large audience in the high school auditorium. It was the first time that most of the cast had ever appeared in a ma|or production, yet each student played her part well. The audience was kept in suspense from the prologue until the last scene when the murderess was discovered by her best frind. Much of the effectiveness of the play was created by the excellent lighting and the sound effects. Although, "Nine Girls" was primarily a mystery, the comedy element mode it more enjoyable. It will be a long time before the antics of Shotput and Glamorpuss or the cruelty of Mary can be forgotten. Shotput holds the center of attention.

"YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU'' On the night of May 29, 1946, the senior class presented "You Can't Take It With You," a comedy by Moss Hart and George Kauffman. As the curtain rose the audience saw the living room of the Sycamore home. At first sight the Sycamores seemed extravagantly mad, but it was not long until the audience realized that in reality they were a very happy family. Each member of the Sycamore family pursued his own hobby. Grandpa raised snakes, while Penny wrote stories and her son, Ed, played the flute. In contrast to the Sycamores were the unhappy Kirbys. The play showed how Tony, their attractive young son, fell in love with Alice Sycamore and took his parents to the Sycamore home where they arrived for dinner on the wrong evening. The Kirbys were shocked by the manner in which the Sycamores lived and realized that for their son to marry Alice was out of the question. However, in the end the Kirbys realized that the Sycamores were happier than they, and allowed their son to marry Alice.

The play revolved around Sheridan Whiteside who, after dining at the home of the Stanleys, fell on the doorsteps and broke a hip. A tumultuous six weks of confinement followed during which the Stanley household was monopolized by the irascible invalid. Whiteside invited ex-convicts and actors to dinner, filled the Stanley living room with such strange gifts as penquins, cockroaches, and an octopus, and made transatlantic calls on the Stanley's telephone. The arrival of a glamorous actress, Lorraine Sheldon, further complicated matters as she tried to win the affections of Bert Jefferson, a young newspaper man, away from Maggie Cutler, Mr. Whiteside's secretary. The plot finally becomes so complicated that to get rid of Lorraine, Whiteside resorted to a bit of trickery by coaxing Lorraine into a mummy case and blackmailing his host into having the case taken to the airport and shipped to Nova Scotia.

Included in the first year of industrial arts is elementary woodworking, electricity, and sheet metal. The second year is spent on mechanical drawing. In woodworking, a study of the parts, care, and use of the different tools is made. After becoming familiar with the tools, small projects are made using these tools. Afterwards, each boy chooses the finish for the project. The history of electricity and wiring diagrams are studied before working with dry cell batteries, bell and push buttons. After a study of sheet metal, small projects are made using the different methods of cutting, binding and forming: then the projects are either soldered or riveted together. In mechanical drawing the use and care of the different tools such as the T-square, 30-60 degree triangle, 45 degree triangle and architect scale are studied. Simple drawings are made at first: then more intricate drawings are started. Further advanced drawings are isometric and oblique drawings, sheet metal drawings, and drawings of gears and screw threads. That phase of technical drawing that deals with the construction of buildings is termed architectural drawing and is classed under fine arts. The purpose of this high school course is to stimulate the love for beauty. This course also helps to arouse a desire for creativeness, a sense of proportion, and to introduce the class to color, harmony, contrast, light and shadows. The building trades class' duty is to build shelter with as much care, space and attractiveness as the materials will permit. The first semester is spent learning the framing, plastering, painting, and the use and care of hand tools. The second semester, machine tools, cabinet work, planning, running grade lines, setting forms and leveling forms are studied and put to useful work. All the boys in this department learn by doing. By taking part in some project one overcomes the fear of insufficiency, giving one self-confidence to conquer new problems which may arise. Row One: Haddix, Zone, Crum. Row Two: Mr. Reed.

There are four degrees of active membership, "Green Hand," "Chapter Farmer," "State Farmer," and "American Former." Advancement through these grades of membership is based on achievement in vocational agriculture and progressive establishment in farming. Throughout the United States, the Territory of Hawaii, and Puerto Rico, the organizations has grown rapidly in numbers of chapters and membership, and is now recognized as the largest farm boy organization in the world. National headquarters are maintained in the Agriculture Education Service of the U. S. Office of Education. A national convention is held annually in the Municipal Auditorium at Kansas City, Missouri, at the time of the American Royal Livestock Show. The Paris chapter is composed of forty-five members and is headed by Don H. Hamilton. The chapter meets in the Paris High School once each month. At these meetings the business meeting is held, then refreshments and generally a game of basketball is played. The members of the Paris FFA chapter participate in pest control each year. The members are divided into two 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. Row One: R.

The Future Farmers of America is the national organization of, by, and for farm boys studying vocational agriculture in public secondary schools and operates under the provisions of the National Vocational Education Act. High school departments of vocational agriculture provide four-year courses of instruction in agriculture and farm mechanics, taught by teachers who are agricultural college graduates. They follow up instruction throughout the year by visiting students on the form and checking on projects. The overage age of FFA members is approximately seventeen years. The major purposes of the Future Farmers of America are to develop agricultural leadership, cooperation, citizenship, improved agriculture, and patriotism. The national organization includes chartered state associations composed of localSCENES FROM SCIENCE Harpster, Steidl, and Wadsworth study the mechanical advantages of pulleys.

The thirty-seven members have been very busy throughout the year attending scheduled meetings of state, district, and local clubs. At the district meeting held in Danville in February 1946, Goldie Gibson was elected district news reporter. With the help of all the club girls and some of the press club a very creditable news letter was sent to each of the twenty-three clubs in the district. Goldie Gibson, Lois Knight, and Pat Sexton attended the local chapter's rally held in Hoopeston. Our part of the program consisted of a demonstration of dried apple dolls and a display of other dolls. Lois Knight represented the club at the State Future Homemakers Leadership training camp held at Lake Bloomington August 21-27, 1946. Three KOI DOGS • hundred eighty-seven girls from all parts of the state were in attendance. The week was filled with discussions, program plans, crafts, style-shows, movies, stunts, and group singing. The high light of the week came on Friday night with the candlelight installation of the new state officers. The Future Farmers state officers were guests at one afternoon session. Lois Knight, Maxine Duckworth, and Goldie Gibson represented the club at the September district meeting held at the Wolford Hotel in Danville. In December twelve members, the sponsors, Miss Hendricks and Miss Perisho, and the Club Mother, Mrs. Cleo Gleckler, were sent to the district rally held at Potomac. Jeanine Bryant, Betty Wright, and Margie Conine had charge of one of the discussion groups. The annual Christmas party was held at which time gifts were exchanged and refreshments served. Two boxes were filled with games, toys, writing materials, and clothes for the Red Cross. A style show in March was sponsored for the girls by a downtown store. In May the girls planned an evening meeting at which time the parents were invited to witness the candlelight installation of new officers. • Once a week throughout the winter months hot gingerbread was sold at the close of afternoor classes. This netted the treasurer a good sum. Officers for the year 1946-47 were: Lois Knight, president: Dorothy Ashley, vice president: Betty Mason, secretary: Margie Conine, treasurer: ana Goldie Gibson, reporter.

Playing for the football and basketball games, and for many public programs, the band has become a popular and an essential part of Paris High School. For the last few years it has been journeying to Charleston for the EISTC homecoming. Its music rouses the people at the games and other civic affairs, and soothes them at many other times. The maestro, Mr. Waterloo, has always had a successful band and many talented pupils who have brought home many first and Seconds from the annual music contests. Band ensembles and soloists traveled to Charleston T. C. on March 2, 1946, and returned home with thirteen firsts, eight seconds, and three thirds. Those winning firsts are as follows: Dorothy Kien- ast, piano: Shirley Bolton, flute and piccolo; Patricia Emery, oboe; Laura Raffety, alto clarinet; Jim Bright, clarinet; John Gilbert and Marcella Sullivan, tuba; George Kruse, baritone; Lyndon Ashby, alto saxophone; a woodwind trio, and two drum ensembles, a quartet and a duet. Those receiving seconds were as follows: Joe Irish, French horn; Peggy Walls, Bb tenor saxophone; Mary Ruth Shaw, piccolo; Dorothy Kienast, bassoon; Clifford White, bass clarinet; Bill O'Ban-non, clarinet; a mixed clarinet quartet, Bill O'Ban-non, lleen Sanders, Clifford White and Laura Raffety; and a brass quartet, John Laymon, Dorothy Kienast, Weston Wetteland, and Audrey Bruns-man. Those receiving thirds were as follows: John Laymon, trombone; Paul Spierling, flute, and Audrey Brunsman, cornet. Again on April 6, the whole band traveled to Charleston T. C. and received a second in class B bands. There were many new and inexperienced members in the band then, but this year it looks like the band will be able to get back to its winning streak again. On May 17, 1946, the band gave its ninth annual indoor concert in which the final contest winners displayed their talents. They were as follows: Laura Raffety, Patricia Emery, Shirley Bolton; the woodwind trio; Paul Spierling, Jim Bright, and Patricia Emery; and drum ensemble, Robert Cox, John Merkle, Robert Cash, and Nancy Rhoads. Other features of this wonderful program were concert marches, overtures and novelties. Row One: Ashby, McEvoy, Cherry, B. Cameron, Rigsby, W. Cameron. Row Two: Stewart, Black, C. Duck, Bright, P.

It plays for all the class and Speech Club plays, for county meetings, at various lodge meetings and for many other events in the city. Two years ago it made a very colorful showing at the eighth annual indoor concert given by Mr. Waterloo and his musically inclined pupils. Novelties, semi-classicals, and light operas are specialties of the orchestra. Some of the musicians show versatility by also playing in the band. The orchestra meets every Tuesday and Thursday during the seventh hour. Many of the students use some of the free periods to practice in the small music rooms. The personnel and instrumentation of the orchestra is as follows: Violins Louise Perry John Merkle Ardith Spierling Eunice Cooley French Horns Joan Turner Helen Forster Eb Saxophone Robert Cash Bb Clarinets James Bright Betty Shufelt Esther Cash Xylophone Laura Raffety Bass Clarinet Richard Inman Oboe Patricia Emery Bassoon Peggy Martin Bb Cornets Audrey Brunsman Margaret Kneisley Trombone John Laymon Piano Dorothy Tutt Drums Lindy Wade Bb Tenor Saxophone Peggy Walls Row One: Emery, Raffety, Tutt.

Row Four: Wade, Layman.[88] AND COME THE VOICES FROM ABOVE Voices—beautiful, etheral voices—feminine and masculine voices—that's what one may hear coming from the vocal room. This year many new freshmen girls and boys gave their talents to vocal music and were rewarded by a better knowledge of and appreciation for music. Miss Huelbig started organizing the vocal groups early in the fall. Within a few weeks the groups had elected the officers. The officers of the Girls' Glee Club are as follows: president, Audrey Brunsman; vice president, Eleonore Dahms: secretary, Freda Sidenbender; treasurer, Pat Tobias: librarians, Pat Emery, Mary Lee Henn, Joan Staley, and Jean Loveland. Officers of the Mixed Chorus are as follows: president, Martha Snoddy; vice president, Phyllis Sherfield: secretary, Pat Foley; treasurer, Jean Loveland; librarians, Lindy Wade, JoAnn Martin, Marjorie Foley, and Jane Dalton. Within a month Miss Huelbig had started organizing ensembles and working with soloists. On November 2, 1946, the Girls' Glee Club accepted an invitation to sing on the program "Salute to Youth" from station "WDZ" at Tuscola, Illinois. Again on Friday, December 20, the Glee Club and Mixed Chorus presented a musical Christmas program. The ensembles have become quite popular and have been asked to perform for various occasions. The sextet consisted of Mary Lee Henn and Jacqueline Hall, sopranos: Barbara Rinesmith and Phyllis Sherfield, second sopranos; and Delores Good and Stella Allen, altos. The octet consisted of Martha Snoddy and Eleonore Dahms, sopranos; Jean Loveland and Audrey Brunsman, second sopranos; Pat Tobias and Freda Sidenbender, first altos; and Dorothy Tutt and Joretta Good, second altos. These groups may be changed around before spring contests start; nevertheless, there will be good ensembles to enter the contests. As always the members look forward to spring —the music festival at Robinson, the music contests, and the spring concert presented in the auditorium. Howerton was director of the 1946 music festival at Charleston. Miss Wilkin was music instructor last year and had charge of the spring concert. Each year the groups strive to perform better than the year before. On March 2, 1946, several vocal soloists and ensembles entered in the district music contest at Charleston, Illinois. Of these, Glada Hartwich received a first in girl's low voice, and Martha Snoddy and Eleonore Dahms received a second and a third respectively, in girl's high voice. On April 6 the Girls' Glee Club went to Charleston T. C. and brought back a second. Again this year they will strive for more and higher ratings. First Row: Martin, Conine, Grot, Ciuxton, B.

NOW ENTERS THE QUEEN OF MAY Following a court of senior girls, her majesty ascended to the throne and was crowned the Queen of May. Then followed a "Symphony of Seasons." Phases of autumn, winer, spring, and summer attired in many colorful costumes entered and performed for her majesty and the royal court. This, the 20th Annual May Fete, was presented for Judy Money, as May queen of 1946, the maid of honor, Glada Hortwich, and the court of senior girls. Beautiful spring flowers were arranged to provide a pleasant background and atmosphere for the royal throne. The whole program was in charge of Miss Esther Simons, physical education director. Narrators were Miss Virginia Cross and Jim Sprouls. The program opened with a welcome given by eighth graders: then came the processional of senior girls followed by the May queen and the maid of honor. Then came the "Symphony of Seasons." For autumn, reapers, school children, Halloween imps, Pilgrims and Indians came and danced before the royal throne. For winter, Raggedy Anns and Andys, skaters, bounding hearts, and for spring, Irish dancers, April showers, rain drop and Maypole dancers performed before the queen. For summer, Miss Patricia Emery sang a summer song while butterflies danced for her majesty. After summer gave its adieu, the queen and court departed. Quiet reigned once again. Thus months of preparation provided a glorious night of entertainment that will live in the memory of all who were there.
