It is quite probable that the September. 1940, enrollment will soar to a new high—a new all-time record for PCHS. There’ll be 248 seniors graduating, there are 185 students enrolled in the 8A class at Junior High, and there will be about 32 students graduating at the South Pekin Grade School this spring who will attend. With these and the students from other districts there will be approximately 270 entering students. These statistics undoubtedly show that the group coming in next fall will more than make up for the seniors lost this term.
Helping make PCHS a "bigger and better PCHS" is the aim of the Student Council, and this year, under the capable leadership of Harry Zimmerman, president, and the advisership of the deans. Miss Edith Gramlieh and Mr. Mason Grigsby, the council has well fulfilled its purpose. It has carried on a number of entirely new projects this year, in addition to its regular duties, that have made PCHS even more up-and-coming as a democratic educational system.
Probably the biggest project, and the most welcome one to the students, this year, has been the introduction of a student activity book. School productions, sports activities, and numerous other events of school interest have been flooded with loyal Pekin High activity book holders, and school spirit has definitely taken a jump to a new high.
Honesty and good citizenship have become evident through the council’s efforts to organize a lost
Girls’ Club Renders Service to Students and Faculty
Boys’ Club Group, Headed by Ohlinger, Undertakes Many Hew Projects During l939-’40 School Year
(Assassinated Press Bulletin) —SPECIAL!
This year’s Boys Club is dominated by P.C.H.S. aristocrats! Among them are Student Council president. Dean McXaughton, and his two male opponents, John Caster and Jim Diehl. This year’s prexy, “Bud" Zimmerman is on this "printed plane.’’ along with this year's B. C. president, Ed Ohlinger. And there are many more, too. as you may easily see.
The boys have done a fine job this year on the numerous projects undertaken. Among these are outfits for the cheerleaders and uniforms for the usher squad. The
club also sponsored the Faculty-Intramural thriller. Then, too, you probably were "filled with Christmas Joy’’ when you gazed upon the fancy tree set on the roof of the school by the Clubbers.
Almost all of the members will agree that the club is worthy of the school's support, and President Ohlinger went so far as to say, “Everyone should belong.” and that "all its projects have been so worth-while that the school should furnish halos to the members."
A fine group of boys is coming within the eligibility limit, and the club will possibly increase in attendance this next year.
Loyal Girls Club members are the girls above, each doing her best to be of service to the school. Heading this active service program is the cabinet, elected by the entire club. Lois Sommer is president: Harriett Zimmerman, vice-president: Pat .Moore, junior representative; Jean Rogers, sophomore representative; Jean King, freshman representative; and Nita Mae Allison represents the incoming freshmen B’s. Aiding the cabinet is the council, comprised
and found system. The “Lost and Found" has aided many a student —watches, chemistry books, notebooks, and all of those “little, easily-lost articles" that give a guy or gal many a headache art-turning up “not missing” since the council has started its “Lost and Found.”
“A tree PEKIXOIS for every I student every Friday" is another j of the newly adopted projects of j lie Student Council.
Remember Del Harter, Jack ! Raymon, the snake man, Geoffrey O’Hara, the musician, Haitsma. the aviator, and Helen Hiett? The council arranged these lyceum programs, too.
The Annual Student Talent Show, managed for the second time this year, may become a semi-annual project, now that the council has found two shows successful.
Undoubtedly the council has worked this year, but there has been fun, too. In October it was the district convention at East Peoria, and in the spring the state convention in Carbondale. Members of the council also visited seven neighboring schools.
of Bernice Sanders. Dolores Bas-co. Jessie Frazier, Eleanor Galbraith, Mary Alice Renter, Mary Ellen Thomas, Janice Coo| er. Ella Mae Williamson, and Mary Stowe. And then there’s the adviser of the girls. Miss Gramlich.
The Girls Club has had its “finger in the pie” more than once this year. It has sponsored the matinee dances, served monthly teas to the faculty, presented the school with its first girls’ issue of the Pekinois, served tea to the school board at its monthly meetings, and sponsored the annual Senior May Day.
Since the Girls Club is really a service group, it has co-operated with all school organizations. Most of the “big work” is done by committees, but all the girls are required to do some bit of service
for the school, and therefore become better known by the students and faculty alike.
Left to carry on and uphold the work of the Girls Club next year is the newly elected cabinet with— President—Pat Moore Vice-president—Dolores Banco Junior Representative— Edith Simoncini Sophomore Representative — Vera Pearl Green Freshman Representative — Wand Six
