Text from Pages 1 - 44 of the 1943 volume:

DEDICATED T O PRINCIPAL A. G. HAUSSLER Once our coach, now our principal, always our friend, we 1943 seniors dedicate this senior issue to him. For his clear reasoning and practical solutions to vexing problems, for his understanding and appreciation of the students' needs, devotion to the interests and ideals of PCHS, and unending cooperation with teachers, students, and patrons alike, we express our sincere appreciation. In the face of increasing difficulties, by his invaluable guidance and encouragement, we have graduated through a war year of stress and confusion. Facing an even more confusing world, we are confident and courageous because of the steadying influence of his leadership. SENIOR EDITION Page 3 WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL The progress of the war has brought increased interest on the part of the students in Pekin High's numerous war projects. The Peoria Journal Transcript awarded a fifty dollar war bond to PCHS this fall as first prize in the junior organization scrap contest. The tennis court was the site for the collection of metals of all kinds which towered high in all four corners, representing the contributions of many residents throughout the four divisions of the city. At the end of the city-wide canvass, a total of forty tons of scrap "to hurl at the Japs” had been collected. The campaign for the collection of tin has taken the form of a contest between classes with each class attempting to fill to overflowing its barrel. Friday has been designated as official tin collection day and at this time, two barrels are place by the FFA boys at the Eighth and Ann Street entrance of the school. Grease is brought every Thurs- day to room 15 where the Girl Reserves, sponsors of the drive, empty it from the containers and melt it for shipment. War stamps are sold every day in classrooms and at the patriotically-decorated booth in the main corridor. The Junior Red Cross has been particularly active, Pekin High being 100 per cent in membership. The student body was congratulated by the local Red Cross chapter for its fine projects carried on through home rooms.SENIOR EDITION Page 4 IN MEMORIAM As another memorial plaque was added in the main hall, PCHS students and staff marked the loss of a true friend. The death in October of Mr. Walter E. Lautz, who served for many years as a member of the high school board of education, was a severe loss to all. Mr. Lautz will be remembered for his work as an influential citizen of the community and as a champion of any cause for the betterment of PCHS. The three gold stars on the PCHS service flag, radiating their brilliance upon the remaining 127 stars, represent the glory and honor of the three Pekin high graduates who have paid the supreme sacrifice for their country and freedom. A 1936 graduate, Pvt. Patrick Phillip Tobin was killed in action December 7, 1941, at Pearl Harbor. Simultaneously, Sgt. Henry Nanninga, Jr., who was graduated in 1939, met death in battle on December 7, at Wake Island. Pvt. Hollis J. Williams, who was a '41 graduate, died in in action with the Carlson Raiders somewhere in the Pacific. Time and place of his death are unknown. All three gold stars were in the service of the United States Marine Corps. xxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxx x X ■k ★ ★ ★ ★ XXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXX ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ -xx-xx-x-x-x-x-x-x-x xxxxxxxxxxxNATIONAL HONOR MEMBERS MESSAGE FROM STUDENT COUNCIL PRESIDENT Bob Moeckel Student Council President Fellow Students and Faculty It is a great pleasure to be a grad of "43", and I’m sure my other classmates fell the same way. This class is not an ordinary one because it has been first in almost everthing throughout its four years. Our class sold the highest number of subscriptions for the senior issue of the Pe-kinois, won for the third time the inter-class track meet, and has been high in scholastic honors as well. We, the student council, thank the students and faculty for the fine support and cooperation that has been given us this past year. I personally want to thank the students and faculty for their excellent cooperation with the council. Never once can anyone say that the students and faculty of PCHS do not support their various activities. We feel that such fine support as this plus the initiative of everyone in staying with a job until it is carried through make PCHS a superior school. I am proud to say that I'm a grad of PCHS. There are many memories of my high school days that will live with me forever. I would like to wish the best of luck to the new student council president who, I am sure, will receive the same fine support which I have received from everyone. With cooperation and helpfulness, we can be sure to "Hold true the loved traditions Which will lead our school to fame."SENIOR EDITION Page 6 V.V.W. . . . . . .'.V.’.T ’ ' cw ANNETTA ADAMS Hall Cade!

YYYtYIIliyiv;v v ■ ■« ■ ■■ ■rvi ■yir Pride oi PCHS — The BandPERSONNEL Because of ils willingness to "add its bit" to all school, civic, and patriotic affairs, the band is an organization of which PCHS can be exceptionally proud. During the fall and early winter, its main work was marching. The snappy members of the marching unit appeared with their original and unique formations at all the football games at home, making the period between halves an interesting and lively one. After the marching season, preparations began for indoor work such as organizing the concert band and working up lively marches for basketball games. During t h e regular games, the band formed a scintillating background for the exciting atmosphere. The band's night to really shine forth, however, came on February 23, 1943, at the benefit game between Pekin and East Peoria. The attendance at this year’s game was record-breaking. Because all instrumental contests have been ruled out in the state of Illinois, an exchange of band chapel programs with Manual Training High of Peoria was substituted. During the second semester of the 1942-43 term, the band presented two chapel programs in the PCHS auditorium and a series of twilight concerts in the spring. The person most indispensable to a band is its director—Mr. Clarence Roth, who has produced a versatile group that can change in an instant from the snappy tempo of a Sousa's Band to the low, sweet strains of a Philharmonic Symphony. Members of the band are: Flutes: Evelyn Albers, Joy Dirksen, Eilah Vogelsang, Car-maline Montgomery, and Joan Hackler. Bassoons: Avis Busby, Alice Charlton. Bass Clarinet: James Bruce. E-flat Saxaphones: Dorothlyne Pinchon, Norma Heiken, Patsy Samuelson, Henry Stockeri, Richard Bolam, Robert Faux. B-flat tenor Saxaphones: John Bolam, Albert Heiser, Robert Warner.

The spring vesper heard on April 11 featured the newly-organized girls' choir. The program was presented in three parts: first, a group of patriotic songs followed by several numbers by the all girls' choir and, as a conclusion, the entire choir presented a group of sacred hymns. Besides presenting the vesper, the choir has appeared for the county teachers' convention, for baccalaureate and commencement exercises and has also presented several concerts for the community. Miss Carolyn Wilkinson accompanies the choir. The opera this year was "The Mocking Bird," a story of the French settlements in New Orleans during the eighteenth century. The many duets and solos of the production added to the glamour of the musical performance. Costumes contributed to the exciting galaxy of events and the dignified atmosphere. Mildred Behrends and Bill Waldmeier portrayed the leading romantic roles. But not to be forgotten are the musical members of the group of French Settlers, the choir, which added to the opera considerably. Main characters in the opera were Wayne McGlinn, Clyde Parish, Marvin Jenkins, Nila Mae Allison, Harry Williams, Argel Allen, Dick Brown, Leah Spenser, LaVon Hall, Barbara Renfer, Joyce Hancock, Ilene Ozella, Rosemary Rahn, and Allen Weber.Miss Melba Reid During the year, Thespian troupe 146 initiated 25 new members into the National Thespian Dramatic Honor Society. New and old members alike enjoyed a very successful season. PCHS National Thespian Troupe was established on January 1, 1931, and the troupe charter, signed by Robert W. Johnson, Helen Hiett, Henry Whitfield, Ruth Weeks, Richard Von Der Heide, and E. Louise Falkin, sister of Miss B. W. Fal-kin, head of the English department, now hangs in the main office. The first-semester officers were as follows: president, Norma Rockwell, vice-president, Eugene Alesandrini, and secrtary-treasurer, Louise Coryell. The officers for the second semester were president, Vera Green, vice-president, Dean Wieburg, secretary-treasurer, Judy Donahue. The Thespians made a contribution of forty dollars to the nation-wide stage canteen campaign, for which they received TROOPERS OF UNIT 146 a certificate of recognition. During the year, the Thespians have been complimented for their presentations of productions to various clubs and organizations. In order to better the organization, the Thespians have attempted to arrange better programs for their meetings in "The Little Theater." They also maintain a point system which the members use to total their points received by participating in dramatical events. These points, when totaled, decide whether or not the member is active enough to benefit the club and to be retained. In advancing the cause of dramatics at Pekin High, the Thespians have cooperated wholeheartedly with their sponsor, Miss Melba Reid, who came at the beginning of the year to replace Pvt. George Sparks. The 1943 dramatic season at PCHS began successfully with "Growing Pains," the all-school play, under the direction of Miss Melba Reid. "Growing Pains" was presented October 22 and 23 to two large and enthusiastic audiences who thoroughly enjoyed the complications arising throughout the entire show. The cast included Dean Wieburg, Dorlene Gianessi, Eva Mae Gurney, James Bramlage, Josephine Lyon, La Vonne Hainline, Patricia Champion, Eugene Al-esandri, Bill Strickfaden, Bob Fuller, Gene Kumpf, Jack Campbell, Don Albers, Mary Jean D:‘m!er, Pat Frye, Jacquline Jenkins, Vera Pearl Green, Judy Donahue. The extras were Norma Cooper, A1 Weber, Norma Rockwell, Robert Preston, Paula Sie-bens, Fritz Joesting, Louise Coryell, Walter Fluegal, Jean King, and Jack Rosenberg. Growing PainsPage 29 THIS YEAR’S FOOTLIGHT FEATS Presented by the combined music and drama departments, the annual Christmas vesper, December 13, formed a very impressive and appropriate program entitled, "Christmas Throughout the Ages." Every school has one and so did PCHS. What? A junior class play, entitled "Every Family Has One." Performing for a packed house on February 5 and 6, the performance given by the junior class was heartily praised by the pleased audience. This comedy in three acts dealt with the troubles of marriage planning which were humorously solved by the grandmother of the Reardons, Nana, outstandingly portrayed by Mary Jean Dimler. The cast was as follows: Colette Lowman, Shirley Petrie, George Petrie, Sara Hinshaw, Clara Kuntz, Dale Runyon, Betty Lou Pierce, A1 Weber, Paula Siebens, and George Iftner. The drama 2 class was responsible for a fine radio show, "What We Defend" presented March 2. This program gave an answer to the cynics who find it difficult to justify our present conflict. A one-act play, "Mr. F,” enacted by four well-known PCHS dramatists, was awarded first place in the sectional speech meet, and was placed second in the state finals held at Champaign, April 17. The cast for the winning performance was Mary Jean Dimler, Paul Belk, Allen Weber, Vernon Lewis. Stage Crew, Ilene O z e 11 a and Pat Champion, accompanied them to the contest. American Education Week was appropriately observed by PCHS when the drama department presented "Education for Democracy," based upon the fact that our democracy is founded upon education for all people. Three Thespians were entered in the sectional speech contest in interpretative work. Mary Jean Dimler won first in verse reading with "Murder at Lidice," thereby qualifying for the state contest, at which she captured first place and was privileged to EVERY FAMILY HAS ONE speak over station WILL at Champaign. Vernon Lewis took third place in the sectional with a cutting from "Watch On the Rhine" by Lillian Heilman. Dean Wieburg won second place in the comedy reading division with "George Washington Slept Here," by Moss Hart and George Kaufman. Climaxing the dramatic season was the senior class play, "Lost Horizon," presented May 6 and 7 in the PCHS auditorium. The mystery of Shangri-La was exceptionally fascinating and everyone's attention was held during the performance. Vernon Lewis's realistic portrayal of the principal character was acknowledged "superb." Also to be complimented were Margaret Flynn, Leah Spenser, Roland Champion, Bob Fuller, Harvey Anderson, Paul Belk, Ella Mae Williamson, Don Winkel, Vera Pearl Green, Norma Rockwell, Harry Williams, Judy Donahue and Frances Lampitt.Page 30_______________________ SENIOR ED TT TO N__ Girls' Club Council Edith Gramlich, Adviser NEW HEIGHTS FOR GIRLS' CLUB The Girls' Club has marked another successful year n the achievement book of PCHS. The girls elected in June of 1942 to represent the entire membership of the club on the cabinet were Jean King president; Nita Mae Allison, vice-president,-Mary Pauline Barthel, senior rep-seniative; Merla Hundt, junior representative,- Charlene Clarke, sophomore representative,- and Marcia Heim, freshman representative. Additional girls se- lected to assist the cabinet in its work were Maxine Arnett, Harriet Brosmer, Helen Cannon, Carol Dennis, Margaret Ann Friedrich, Virginia Hagney, llene Ozella, Margaret Ann Snowden, Joy Snyder, and Ruth Weimer. The Girls' Club accomplished four extra projects besides their regular monthly faculty teas, matinee dances, and programs. They assisted the Red Cross in making supplies for soldier's kits. The annual Christmas project consisted of making Christmas dinner menus for the Dutch flyers stationed in the United States for training. Another project was that of sending boxes of used playthings to the Japanese-American camp in Poston, Arizonia. The final project of the club was to provide entertainment and an extra treat for the "Shut-ins" at Oak Knoll Sanitorium each month.

Eleanor McCoy, Adviser Under the supervision of Miss Eleanor McCoy, the PCHS Girl Reserves have done their bit in forwarding the war effort. Their war-mindedness has been proved by the grease campaign conducted every Thursday throughout the semester. The cooperation of the students and faculty has made this most recent war-effort project worthwhile. The faculty members who have advised and directed the Girl Reserves this year are Miss Eleanor McCoy, post-graduate and senior A adviser Miss Gladys Brainard, senior B and junior A adviser; Miss Francis Howard, junior B, sophomore B and A adviser; Miss Emma Mae Large, freshman A adviser; and Miss Maurine Kemp, freshman B adviser. The Gypsy Patteran, the Kiddy Christmas Party, the Vesper Ini-ation Service, and the annual Mother and Daughter Banquet were outstanding Girl Reserve events of the year. Under the direction of Mr. Theodore Nelson, Pekin High's debate team began early last fall to prepare for the oncoming contests. The debate team, consisting of Rosemary Rahn, Ted Johnson, affirmative; Carolyn Jurgens, Nita Mae Allison, negative; and Patricia Champion, alternate, spent many hours in arranging their speeches on the subject, "Resolved: That There Should Be a Federal World Government." They were ranked third in the Galesburg contest in December. At the Augustana College Tournament, Rock Island, they won three out of twelve debates. Act- ing as host at the sectional speech contest, PCHS debaters came through with flying colors. Gaining victory over Lincoln, the squad then ranked fourth in the state tournament held at Champaign. Besides the debaters, students entered in other groups of the sectionals were Ted Johnson, extempore speaking, who placed second in the sectional; James Bramlage, oratorical declamation, second; Carolyn Jurgens, original oration, second; Vernon Lewis, serious reading, third,- Mary Jean Dim-ler, verse speaking, first; and Dean Wieburg, comedy reading, second. IT'S A DEBATABLE QUESTION.' Page 32 SENIOR EDITTON .w-v.vav.u. •. w w Boys' Club Oliicers The Boys' Club increased in popularity and size during the year, with Jack Rosenberg, president, John Rebufioni, vice-president, and Bob Thomas, secretary-treasurer. Selling candy at football games, a fall party November 5, early initiations, and a play-by-play broadcast of the Lincoln football game preceded the Christmas party. "The Shooting of Dan McGrew" was the Club's contribution to the Variety Show. The annual faculty intramural basketball game sponsored by the club for a nine-cent admission, drew a large crowd. For the first time in history, the Club adopted an emblem, which members wear proudly as a symbol of their brotherhood. Final events of the year were the play-by-play broadcast of the state tournament game, presentation of an American flag to the school for auditorium use, and a spring party in the dress of hard times clothes. MOVIE OPERATORS' CLUB Organized four years ago by Principal F. M. Peterson and Mr. V. C. Dollohon of the science department, the Movie Operators' Club has become one of the most popular boys' groups at Pekin High. The members have proved invaluable in their ability and willingness to show movies for classes, social functions, and civic meetings at PCHS. During the past year, they have collected and sold clothes hangers, and with the proceeds have purchased curtains for the auditorium doors for the special benefit of their audiences. LET IT FLICKERSENIOR EDITION Page 33 STUDENT COUNCIL MARCHES AHEAD The student council, under the leadership o f President Bob Moeckel, has completed another year in which their service has been outstanding, despite wartime handicaps. The entire council, Dean of Girls Edith Gramlich, Dean of Boys Mason Grigsby, and Principal A. G. Haussler convened each Monday noon in room 3 to conduct business, read correspondence, and hear committee reports given by the chairmen. The student council's outstanding accomplishments during the year were as follows: The book exchange, conducted by council members, gave efficient and expert service to students and faculty in the sale of used books. Likewise, the lost and found and social room have continued to be of excellent value to PCHS students. The council, through the health committee, conducted the sale of bangles in the fall and aided in the tuberculin tests given to seniors and freshmen this spring by Dr. Fast of Oak Knoll Sani-torium. The junior Red Cross committee has assisted in sending needed supplies to members of the armed forces and has kept the service flag up to date. The council had charge of plans for the recent student council presidential campaign and election. Twelve delegates represented Pekin at the state convention held April 30 and May 1 at the Hotel Pere Marquette in Peoria. PEN AND INK TALENT The 1943 Talent Magazine, published each year for the purpose of giving recognition to the literary talents of students, was adorned with block prints, a feature which previous volumes did not contain. Under the direction of Miss Bernice Falkin, Talent faculty adviser, the staff worked cooperatively in three committees: fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. After the committees had judged the material, it was turned over to the editor and assistant editor who passed on it and then submitted it to the critical eye of Miss Falkin for last minute grammatical corrections. As a whole, the Talent Magazine, volume number five, was a splendid success and appreciated by all purchasers. The staff consisted of the following: editor, Jay Schaff; assistant editor, Margaret Ann Friedrich; business manager, Stuart Scott; art editor, Lois Cheeseman; assistant art editor, Cecelia Kitchell; fiction committee, Chairman Margaret Flynn, Anne Belle Johannes, Frances Lampitt, Lois Cheese-man, James Smith, Gene Parker, Vera Mae Dille; non-fiction com- Two PCHS students participated on the program: In a three- minute speech, Merla Hundt informed all convention members as to Pekin High's contribution to the war effort, and Mary Pauline Barthel was a member of the resolutions committee. Various committees have also selected lyceums for the coming year and have attempted to improve traffic jams. Winding up the year's activities, student council members held their annual picnic at Detweiler Park. The additional officers for the year were vice-president, first semester, Don O'Keefe, second semester, Mary Pauline Barthel, secretary, Rosemary Rahn, and treasurer, Toula Ragias. Editors mittee, Chairman Marian Weis-enberger, Goldie Larimore, Cecelia Kitchell, James Stolley, Iris Hall, Betty Rhoads, poetry committee, Chairman Paula Sei-bens, Jo Lyon, Marjorie Witt, Winifred Kalb, Jean Udry, John Sommer. SENIOR EDITION Page 34 CHEERS FOR PIGSKIN SQUAD With the return of only three lettermen, John Helm, Tom Newman, and Captain John Rebuf-foni, the Chinks' outlook was not encouraging at the opening of the 1942 football season. For the first time in seventeen years, Coach Glen Haussler was not directing the team, for he had been advanced to the rank of principal after the departure of Capt. F. M. Peterson for the army. Jim Lewis, who had been "Frenchy's'' assistant for several years and had "learned the ropes” during that time, was made head coach. Coach Lewis had experienced set-backs as well as victories under "Frenchy” but with Gordon McKenzie, a University of Illinois graduate, assisting him, he determined to have a superior squad during his first year at the reins. Beginning training a week before school opened in September, Coaches Lewis and McKenzie set out to overcome the obstacles which are created when an inexperienced and outweighed team takes to the gridiron against a more expert squad. However, with all their handicaps, the Chinks responded to "Big Jim’s" coaching and were often outweighed but never outfought during the season. This was proved by the wins and losses: Pekin won games over Washington, Canton, Manual, and Central. The Chinks lost to Lincoln, Streator, Spaulding, and Bloomington. Pekin and East Peoria fought to a tie. At the end of the season, the following boys had won varsity letters: Howard Adkins, Richard Brown, Roland Champion, Charles Eskrich, John Helm, Mar- vin Jenkins, Robert Moeckel, Tom Newman, Richard Sold-wedel, Eugene Taylor, Glen Wie-burg, and Captain John Rebuf-foni. All were seniors and played their last games for Pekin. The underclassmen who received letters are Lester Haney, Don McMullen, Edward Olt, Stanford Schmidt, and Ed Shane. Edward Olt and Stanford Schmidt were named co-captains for the games in the following 1943 schedule: Sept. 10—Open. Sept. 17—Woodruff—here. Sept. 24—Canton—there. Oct. 1—Lincoln—here. Oct. 7—Manual—there. Oct. 15—Streator—there. Oct. 22—Central—here. Oct. 28—Spaulding—there. Nov. 5—East Peoria—here.Pekin High's victorious basketball team ended an exciting season by winning their way to the state tournament. Pekin ended the season with 13 wins and 11 losses for a .542 average, rating third in the Big 12 with 6 wins and 3 losses for a percentage of .67. The team also ranked third in the Illini conference, with 5 wins and 5 losses for an average of .500. Pekin made a total of 903 points to their opponents’ 831 points, and made over a thousand points while participating in the tournaments. The team consisted of cocaptains Johnny Rebufioni and Dick Soldwedel, Glen Wieburg, Charles Eskrich, Bob Moeckel, Howard Adkins, John Moor-house, Ed Shane, Stanford Schmidt, Don McMullen, Dewey Portuto, Bob Ross, Joe Connelly, Ralph Taylor, and Ed Olt. Coach Jim Lewis will have to start from scratch next year, as the first seven st a r s are graduating seniors. Pekin started the season by losing their first game to Tremont. Regaining their equilibrium, the Chinks won three in a row, but in return, lost the next three. Again snapping out of their slump, they walloped Washington. Traveling to Kewanee and on to Rockford, they lost two more out-of-town games. Recuperating from the trip and the double loss, they won three more. After receiving a beating from Canton here, Pekin eased into another slump and lost four straight. Deciding to cut loose, the Chinks defeated five teams: Manual, Normal, Streator, Spalding, and Central. The Raiders from East Peoria put a stop to Pekin's winning streak by defeating them at the band benefit game, but all ended well, with Pekin taking the last game of the season from Lincoln. The Chinks went on to win the regional and sectional tournaments making their way to the state, where Wood River eliminated them after a bloody battle in the first game. Page 36 SENIOR EDITION .. BASEBALL The 1943 baseball season is full of promise for the Pekin Chinks if the results of the first three games are any indication of how the rest of the season will turn out. Coach Jim Lewis has seven returning lettermen from last year's aggregation, winning ten of the twenty games played. These boys are Virgil Romans, Gene Taylor, Charles Eskrich, Robert Moeckel, Dick Soldwedel, Robert Monge, and Sherrill Maurer. Boys showing considerable promise in practice are Glen Wieburg, who pitched a no-hit, no-run game against Washington in his first start, Don McMullen, first baseman,- Wall McCabe, second baseman; Adrian Miller, third base; Stan Schmidt, Leonard Flynn, and Eddie Shane in the outfield. Bill Waldmeier is the manager this year. Results of the first three games are victories over East Peoria, 7-1, Washington, 6-0, and Mackinaw, 7-4. The reginoal and sectional tournaments will both be held here this year. TENNIS PCHS has finally come through with an excellent tennis team. In the past years, Coach Robert Walker has always turned out a tennis team with one or two fair players. This year, Coach Walker has more than enough to carry him through the season. The team consists of the veteran lettermen, Captain John Moorhouse, George Petri, Jack Rosenberg, Roland Champion, and Jim Moses. Wilson Besant played enough to earn a minor award. Ronald Lakin is out for his first time and has been playing first and second positions. Ted Johnson is also out. Those returning will be Besant, Moses, Lakin, and Johnson. These boys, with the aid of newcomers, will form next year's net team. TRACK The PCHS cinder men began their season with a bang. In their first three meets, they defeated East Peoria and Peoria Manual. Then the tide turned and they passed the hat to Peoria Central. Captain C. A. Johnson led the team in the mile. Walter McMul-lin threw the discus, Ed Shane topped the standards on the high jump, Marvin Jenkins was an all around man in the hurdles, 100 yard dash, and other events. Stanford Schmidt helped the scores on the shotput and the pole vault. The coach will have many veterans for next year's team. MAC” PRIZE WINNING PHOTO submitted by ROLAND PETRIE to whom is awarded a complimentary copy of THE SENIOR PEKINOIS SENIOR EDITION Page 37 "Timely" best describes this year's Spring Frolic with its patriotic numbers, Easier specialties, and demonstrations of the physical fitness program. Directed by Miss Eleanor Francis and Miss Mary E. O'Connor, the Frolic was divided into three parts, with the PCHS jazz orchestra forming the musical background. The costuming for each number was gay and colorful. Outstanding was the finale, "The Grand Old Flag." Each girl, carrying a tiny flag on her shoulder, formed a moving mass of red, white, and blue.Page 38 SENIOR EDITION THE STARS AND STRIPES FOREVER The Majorettes Salute Bands are never complete without drum majorettes, and PCHS is no exception. The majorettes' wands of silver are set off by their new red-and-white costumes. The spotlight is centered on them at the basketball and Six seniors, who are now bidding farewell to GAA activities, have upheld the qualities emphasized in their GAA song — sportsmanship, fellowship, and loyalty. Although they will be missed, these seniors leave with the feeling that GAA will carry on and stand true to its ideals.

SIX GAA SENIORS Michael, and Program Chairman Jenesse Allen. Those six seniors who have been so highly praised by the other members are those: La- Verna Michael, who was an active member and served as an officer, will long be remembered. Ruth Betzelberger, who has all the vim and vigor to make an excellent GAA member, will leave a vacancy hard to fill. Nimble Donna Jean Snyder, who has been in GAA since entering high school, will also be greatly missed. Marge Beetler and Goldie Larimore have spent many a delightful evening in the girl's gym. Mary Jo Gunsten, although Twirlers she's not very big, was mighty when it came to sports. All in all, the GAA members of the past year have been good sports — willing to cooperate in any job asked of them. So, to these seniors, we bid farewell and wish the best of luck. Head "Yeller" this year was versatile Helen Hayes. Other cheerleaders were, left to right, Rufus Skaggs, Mary Jean D.'mler, Donna Jean Snyder, and Vera Pearl Green.

O happy day. But, alas, does this seem to strike a false note? Perhaps this is the day we had dreamed of a month ago when we regarded the eds as tyrants constantly yelling, "We want copy."

Oh what fun roaming the halls—strolling around the campus — actually thrilling to the excitement of seeing a "daily" in operation. Yes, we've had fun and along with it, we've tried to give you the best in a school paper—a paper that is appealing—and yet we've attempted to arouse enthusiasm not only in the students but also in citizens of the community in our war projects. Working with Margaret Flynn, editor, we have spent long hours writing and rewriting to make each issue of the Pekinois a thing to be looked forward to. Carolyn Jurgens as editorial writer, Thelma Hild and Virginia Colvin as news editors, first semester, and Billie Jean Allen and Jo Lyons, second semester, you have been kept well informed as to the current events of PCHS. Sports editor Fritz Joesting has given you the latest in the sports highlights. Exchange editor Marge Beetler has seen that the Pekinois has been sent to various schools throughout the country. The clothes closet by Jean Udry and Joan Hackler, the Chinks column by Randall Dobbins, the senior studes by Ella Mae Williamson, and Echoes column by Johnny Rebuffoni have all supplied you with feature stories. Art editor Lois Cheeseman has added that artistic touch to the Pekinois. And, of course, without the faithful cub reporters, your paper just would not have been. So, until next year when the cubs take over the horshoe copy table, we bid you goodbye at the end of a successful year.
